"Major communicator. On the these issues what do you think is behind this decision. I mean based on all of your reporting and this being your beat The people you're talking to about this like why do you think the white house isn't pushing or encouraging bizarre to take a stronger role in the federal response. And why are they doing things in this way that you just laid out. We'll part of it is the structure that we just talked about right. You have an entire white house team jeff. Signs has his own staff and he's also working directly with health officials across the agencies. And at some point you have to make sure that there's not essentially too many cooks in the kitchen right not too many people trying to lead. And so that is the structure that biden settled on early on the other factor. Though is that ba himself has no real public health. Medical background you know. He was a longtime democratic congressman He was california attorney general but has not really been in the weeds on a lot of these public health issues. And so officials had told me that that his limited the ability that he can really contribute to these in-depth scientific discussions when they're trying to figure out. Okay what direction to take the kobe response. And that is a major contrast to many of the others who are working on response murphy. Obviously a doctor rachelle will ski public health. Expert anthony fout. She been there forever doing public health for decades and so in comparison to that expertise. Bazaar really doesn't have a specific. Lean adam cancun vixen. So much for talking with me. This has been great. I really appreciate it also. Today the federal reserve is signaling. That it's on track to begin withdrawing some of its massive support for the us economy later this year during their two day meeting this week. The fed's policy makers left interest rates unchanged but half of them penciled in the possibility of an interest rate hike next year indicating that they think the economy might be strong enough by then for the central bank to start ending. Its support more aggressively. And it's post meeting statement. The fed's policy-making committee said the rise in cova cases has slowed the recovery and officials forecast that the economy would grow five point nine percent in twenty twenty one which is significantly lower than their june estimate of seven percent and president biden is acknowledging that his administration should have consulted with the french government before announcing a new trilateral security pact with australia and the uk which saw australia pull out of a multi-billion dollar submarine deal with france. According to a joint statement released by the white house describing phone call between biden and french president emmanuel macron. They quote agreed that the situation would have benefited from an open consultation. Among allies the conversation appeared to mark a de-escalation and what has been one of the most tumultuous periods of the us french relationship in recent memory. An episode during which the us oldest ally openly criticized the by the administration for not making macron's government aware of the partnership. Today's episode of politico dispatch included music composed by brake master cylinder later today. Don't miss a live conversation. Politico is hosting with senators.

"So back in mid august there was a big debate within the administration over whether people needed cove in nineteen vaccine booster shots and that debate led up to a big meeting between the nation's top public health officials. Cdc director rachelle lewinsky. You had evac murphy. Who's a surgeon general. You had representatives from the white house. Cdc fda preparedness response and their job essentially was to all kind of come to a consensus on recommendation. Would americans need booster shots or not. And how exactly do you roll that out. The one person who is not involved in that discussion was hhs secretary. Hobby are bizarre and the reason that that stood out is that he is the number one health official in the country. He is joe. Biden's hell secretary. He runs the eighty thousand person department of health and human services which is essentially responsible for ending the corona virus pandemic. I'm jeremy siegel. This is politico dispatch and today. A madame cancun. I'm a healthcare reporter here. Politica adam kane grin on a question central to the federal corona virus response where is. Hhs secretary havi air. This has been a pattern where the structure. That's kind of emerged is that there's a team at the white house right. That leads the covert response and they've been working in many cases directly with subordinates. At hhs so the cdc director the head of the food and drug administration people within hhs senior officials who are doing a lot of the daily day to day policy work a and b. Sarah has been involved in some things right. He has been briefed regularly but he has not been hands on deep into that day to day. Work trying to end the pandemic and that's been consistent across his first six months in office here. I imagine you talked to sarah in your reporting tried to talk to him. We did we did. What did he have to say about this. Well he had a couple of things to say one you know when i originally approached the white house back in december about what besir israel role was going to be. They said that he was going to quote. Be an empowered leader at the forefront of the code response. I asked him directly i said. Do you feel empowered. And he said absolutely completely and his contention was that one. Hhs as a whole has been at the center of the response has been integral and to a degree. That's that's true. Hhs has been involved. Even if he himself has not been Completely involved day to day. And then i guess the third thing that he said is that he maintained. It wasn't really his job to be making all the policy decisions. Rather his job was to be taking those and translating them into concrete on the ground initiatives. But according to your reporting i mean. He is notably absent from a lot of these high level decisions. High level meetings If he's not there where exactly is he. What is this era doing well. That's that's kind of been. The central question is what underpin this story and it's been a question that people outside and an inside frankly. The administration have had for several months. Now i kind of held off on writing the story for a while. Because i was kind of convinced that lookie had to be doing something. You know a consequence in there that would explain why we have not seen him really out front on the kobe response What i found in my reporting was a couple of things as one. It's not that he's not working. There's a lot of things going on a department. There's a lot of things that needs to be managed day to day but when it comes to the top priorities here for the biden administration. Almost all of that is run and directed out of the white house and not the health department. So you have co vid you have drug pricing. And some of the negotiations happening with congress to try to get their major social spending bill and you have kind of this attempt to chart out what the rest of the health agenda looks like to date. We have not really seen. Sarah take a strong hand in leading those activities. What are the repercussions of this situation. Like does it hurt the federal corona virus response in any way. Does it hurt morale for members of the health department. Like how does this actually play out in real time. Perhaps the main reason that it matters we've seen over the past few weeks month or so. There's been this big debate over booster shots. Who should get them. When should they get them. What the evidence says. And what we've seen. Is the white house really clashing with public health agencies underneath. Hhs so that's the cdc the fda the national institutes of health to degree this disagreement between the white house. That wants to move fast. That wants to make sure it's on top of the pandemic and the cdc and fda scientists who say well wait. Let's make sure that we have all the evidence to make the best possible decision and those disputes in the past few weeks have spilled out into public. We've seen to top vaccine. Fda regulators resign. We've seen a back and forth in public over. Who should be getting these boosters. And whether the white house is decision to announce a booster plan early on was appropriate and what has been lacking in all of that internally is to health secretary and hhs taking a strong role in essentially mediating hope those factions right. The white house for various reasons cannot put direct pressure on cdc and fda otherwise it would look like they were trying to put politics over the science. You hadn't really thought about it until you were mentioning this. The fact that fda and cdc are both part of hhs it totally makes sense but yet does make you think. About how some of these. Open scientific feuds and confusion. We've seen would play out differently if you did have the person at the top of the the department overseeing both fda and the cdc taking a stronger role. Yeah and. I think you're seeing now some signs that hhs is starting to realize. Hey maybe we haven't been as present as we needed to be a earlier this week. We reported that. Hhs had brought on leslie doc. Who worked back in the obama administration. He was an adviser to hillary clinton's twenty sixteen presidential campaign. And he is this well known. Democratic communication specialists in his job for the next several weeks is essentially to fix the communication and policy coordination to come in and make sure that the white house is working better with cdc and fda with hhs right the middle there doing that job. Is there someone who has taken a sort of singular leadership role when it comes to the federal cove response. The clear leader is jeff. Zein's he's the head of the white house krona virus response team and that has been on purpose if you remember back to december when joe biden rolled out his first major health appointments. Yes heavier sarah was there. But jeff designs was also there as well and it was clear that he would lead the response across the government so not just health issues but economic and everything in between at hhs. What we've seen is vivek murthy. Who's a surgeon. General has taken a lead role in communications and messaging and explaining things to the public. And then you've seen cdc director rachelle walinsky taking a big role in explaining the science. That's behind allowed. The decision making that the white house is doing and so between the three of them they have been among the most visible They have been the ones who have appeared probably most often at regular white house. Cova briefings on tv And the only one. I guess i would be remiss to to mention because he is so ubiquitous. Is anthony foudy. Who is a chief medical advisor to biden. He obviously has been leaned on it as a trusted and kind of.

"Last dot com. I'm Dana Lash. One of the things that we were telling you about last hour was this apparent new policy? I don't know if it's a policy or what it is from the Biden administration. That is appearing to limit the ability of doctors to order early treatment medication. For people who are fighting coronavirus, and I first saw some of this. I had a friend who is active in Republican politics, lives in my town and was talking about shared on her page. This county Judge Marco County judge Saying that when, when he was preparing for emergency response to Hurricane Nicholas. They got news that about their about Montgomery County that there was been hosting a regional monoclonal Antibodies Infusion center doing over 2000 fusions. Vaccinated unvaccinated received it. But the bite administration is now meet Oring. How many doses of Regeneron are sent to Texas and thus limiting how many are sent? To that Montgomery County location, telling Texas to reduce its use of a therapeutic treatment that this judge has said has said, literally saved lives and is reducing hospitalization. It's not a supply issue, he thinks it might be temporary, but maybe he would like to think so. But it's not. Manufacturers confirmed. Supplies are ample. But it's due to the Defense Production Act, but White House and its agencies are the only entities. Who can purchase and distribute The treatment. So this sounds like the federal government trying to determine what kinds of treatments that you can receive and politicizing. Lives is insane. Now Congressman Chip Roy of Texas. He sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services on Monday asking about this change in policy questioning Secretary Xavier Becerra. Saying that the Texas is utilized these treatments. This has been effective. What happening here with this monoclonal antibody treatment. Congressman Roy joins us on the phone. Now I know he's on the run. We appreciate his time today, Congressman what is happening here? And is this a new Policy change. I mean, what have you heard from the health and human Services secretary? Well, first of all, David, Thanks for having me on thanks for paying attention is when most of the mainstream media will not The vast majority of people. I talked to you that I represent doctors. People who are trying to save lives are being complaining for a long time about the obstacles that keep getting put up when they're trying to provide treatment actually help people rather than these bastards, frankly, in Washington, whose only solution is to offer mandates and to say that if you're not back stated, you should basically be left to die and then force people into hospitals to be innovative. Instead, we have treatments that work. We know that they're working these monoclonal antibodies that are working. We've seen governor in Santa's saying that we should put those up. We have places in Texas that have been doing that, like Montgomery County, and it became clear to me that they were starting to restrict the supply. Doctors started telling me Wait a minute age, a jazz is starting to make it. Impossible for us or difficult for us to get the supply. We need to be able to go help people. So I've sent a letter to HHS. Uh, few days back saying, Guys, What are you doing? We need to hear We need a briefing. We need to know what's going on. Got some of my colleagues on it. And then immediately within 24 hours after sending that letter, Lo and behold, we're now allegedly getting a briefing tomorrow. Uh, I'll find out most of the briefings we get from this administration or total garbage. But we'll listen to the briefing, and we'll see what they're saying. We'll try to put them on the spot. A briefing is not the same as a hearing as you know, in public. So right now what we're seeing and you've talked about it a post on Facebook by the county judge in Montgomery County, down near Houston, where he's basically infuriated as they're going through the hurricane situation. They've been had a infusion center for Monica and why anybody's And they've been successfully doing that over 2000 times both vaccinated and unvaccinated. And now you've got a J just coming in and saying that they're metering. How many doses were sent to Texas and limiting how many are sent to the Montgomery County location? That judges furious. They have no right to do this, just like they had no right for the president issued is unconstitutional and unlawful order last Friday, which I've Called on Texans to disregard and the governor to back up Texas to disregard. This is crazy talking with Congressman Chip Roy of Texas, who is demanding that the health and human services Secretary Xavier Becerra, answer questions about the limitation on behalf of the federal government. They're limiting orders and shipments of monoclonal antibody treatments. To HHS approved administration sites and it looks. I mean, is this I? It's hard for me Congressman to figure out any legitimate purpose for the rationing of this Regeneron. It's been successfully used before. Many people have successfully used it. This sounds more like a political move than one that follows the science. Do you feel the same on that? This is 100% of political move. I will, of course, always listen to what someone telling me about whether there's some sort of supply issue we need to be made aware of. But my understanding for people to understand this is there is not a supply issue that we need to allow. This allowed doctors to go through the normal channels go get this course allows states to figure that out at the state level. And there's no reason for HHS to be involved in this and that, frankly, it's inherently political. The federal government has been trying to put up roadblock after roadblock after roadblock to any possible treatment doesn't fit within their whole regime of command and control from Washington to tell everybody what to do and when to do it. Immediately. Of course, at the outset, they were opposed to the vaccine because it was something that was being you know, produced when Donald Trump was president, But now everyone must get the vaccine or you're somehow a leper and should be excluded from society. Even if you have natural immunity because you've had the virus, which we know 40 plus million, if not many more over 100 Million Americans have some form of natural.

Biden Admin Withholds Millions of Aid for Hospitals Treating COVID Patients

"Hospitals bulge again with Covid 19 patients. A wide swath of the health care industry is exasperated that federal health officials have not made available anymore of the aid. Since Joe Biden took office Now $44 billion from a provider relief fund, created last year remains unspent, along with 8.5 billion Congress allotted in March for the medical care in rural areas. Right. That's over $50 billion With the coronavirus Delta variant fueling 1/4 pandemic surge, they write healthcare institutions, lobbyists and lawmakers. Have ratcheted up complaints to senior Biden administration health officials, imploring them to decide how the money will be divided and when it will be distributed. Is this not amazing? All the people going on and on about how the federal government knows everything. Fauci, the CDC, the FDA, National Institutes of Health, HHS, They're sitting on the money. And other than Amy Goldstein. I haven't seen this anywhere else. There's just no good reason for the administration to be sitting on these funds, and Mark Parkinson president, chief executive The American Healthcare Association, a trade group that represents nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Many running short on money, he said, because the virus is heavy concentration of long term care centers early in the pandemic, a stop causing potential patients and residents to stay away. Parkinson said he has had four conversations for Since February. The agency and the Department of Health and Human Services. It is in charge of the money. And one last month with senior aides to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. Each conversation we came up with the feeling would be that month, Parkinson said. And we've been wrong.

The Ridiculous Pseudo-Debates on Language by Liberals, Shown by HHS Sec. Becerra

"Check this out as Bokeria tries to defend this stupidity. Take a look. But would you at least admit calling a mom a birthing person? Could be offensive to some moms that they don't want to get. Like a happy birthing person card in mayor, Can you released admit that that term itself could be offensive to some moms? Center. I'll go back and take a look at the the terminology that was used and I'll get back to you. But again, if we're trying to be precise in the language that's used. Mom's a pretty good word. That's that's worked for a while, and I think that's pretty precise as well. It's pretty good Mom. Mom, Mother. Mama's worked pretty well for, you know, Ever since the inception of conscious human thought that word's been okay. I mean, everybody's pretty clear on what it means. There's no real confusion about who your mom is. And there is no berthing person in human history. It hasn't been a mom. I'm just going to throw that out there. I have 100% track record of success on the use of the word Mom, just saying But because the less engaged in a prolonged war on language These are the kind of Ridiculous pseudo debates we find ourselves in But why is the left doing this? Why this war on language? Folks. This is the important part of this and the takeaway. Don't just talk about stories because they're funny or their. I mean, although this is a ridiculous story, there's a reason and it's behind the tactics, the left users and if you can win the war on language that debates over before it starts, think about it right. If the left just randomly changes terms we've used for millennia. That have meant very clear things for hundreds of years, in a minimum that have meant many very clear things, and they change them at the flip of a switch, and anyone who fails to use that term is some kind of phobia phobic.

"Biden announced the United States has administered more than 150 million covert 19 vaccines in the 1st 75 days of his administration. It means a shorter wait for those not yet eligible in their states, even though finding an appointment can still be challenging in many places. President has also said that by April 19th all American adults will be eligible for a shot. Dr. Becerra should care is the biting administration's vaccine coordinator who spoke this week to our medical contributor. Dr J. But an ABC s Aaron capture ski Seems Doc. We're making good progress getting shots in arms. But that may not be enough to stave off these variants. Well, there's been a lot of progress over the last many weeks we've administered as a country more than 165. Million doses. This is a big deal, and it is a long journey, so we really need to make sure that we're keeping our guards up. Can you give us your best estimate of the time line from there? One will most Americans be vaccinated, and there's a lot of discussion about herd immunity. When do we expect to reach that? It's hard to really predict when all adults will be vaccinated in this country for many, many factors, So we're pretty confident we're gonna have enough supply. The second piece. We have to pay attention to would be. Are there enough places for people to getting vaccinated? And we know that this is definitely moving in the right directions. There are literally thousands and thousands of community vaccination centers across the country. Tens of thousands of pharmacies by April, 19th will be available and we know that FEMA is also running community vaccination centers and partnership with states once we get to the 40,000 retail farm See locations activated about the 80% of people in this country will be within five miles of the location to getting vaccinated and then making sure that we do have resource is to support with transporting people back and forth if transportation is an issue, what about

A County sheriff's department. With more on that here is Kay Pcc's Robert Korova. Attorney General Javier Becerra said the inquiry comes after credible reports of excessive force retaliation and other misconduct at the Sheriff's department. He said the investigation will look into whether the department has engaged in a pattern or practice of unconstitutional policing. It's aimed at identifying and addressing potential systemic violations of the rights of the people L a county. The inquiry is also a response to what the Department of Justice sees as a lack of sustained oversight of the sheriff's department. Civilian oversight Commissioner Priscilla Oh, Chin says.

For the California report. I'm Robert Grove, A in Los Angeles. A new law that bans the sale of flavored tobacco products in California has been halted long term after state officials confirmed that a referendum to roll back the law has qualified for the 2022 ballot. More than a million signatures to get the referendum on the ballot were submitted by the innocuous sounding the California Coalition for Fairness. That coalition, though, is bankrolled by tobacco giants RJ Reynolds and Philip Morris USA, which have contributed more than $20 million to defeat the flavored tobacco ban. Critics of the referendum say it's an example of big tobacco trying to create the next generation of tobacco users by marketing candy flavored products. It's also another example of corporate interest trying to roll back California laws by qualifying measures for the ballot. Its return to the pandemic. The speed of California's vaccine rollout remains one of the slowest in the nation. Can it be done faster? Some volunteer tech workers with ties to Silicon Valley certainly think so, KQED science reporter Lesley McClurg explains. A few weeks ago, Tim Swartz was watching the nightly news. New guidelines will be issued today that will expand vaccine eligibility short, suddenly qualified for a shot. He's a 67 year old resident of San Francisco. He had no idea how to get one. Nobody's calling me emailing me telling. I'm eligible for anything. He checked his doctor's office. But they weren't vaccinating people his age. So we went down to his local pharmacist and asked if they were offering shots, and he said no. Hey, had heard from corporate Walgreens corporate office that They might in the future.

But Patrick McKenzie isn't waiting around. He's a tech worker based in Tokyo with ties to California He was Florida. The vaccines were sitting on shelves rather than saving lives, So I tweeted out on Twitter and said One of the best things that I could imagine a technology spending time on right now is calling the places that could have the vaccine and putting who says yes in a single place. The called Arms roused many of Mackenzie's followers, which is 100,000 people. A group of really smart folks started designing a dashboard immediately. A few hours later, Mackenzie checked in on his friends. This is all fantastic. You know, just one thing, though, When you're when you're doing the call center management. I have some suggestions, and then one thing led to another. They launched a website the next morning. Less than a week later, 250 volunteers were calling hundreds of doctors and pharmacists across the state. Every day. One afternoon they found 60 new places offering shots just in Los Angeles.

California GOP won't remove unofficial ballot drop boxes

"Hi. Welcome to the side of the breakdown. Okay. Great to be here. So okay. You have been covering this dispute that is happening between the Republican Party and Democratic leaders in the state. Ballot boxes popped up in some contested congressional district over the weekend. Put there by the state GOP. Tell us what happened. What are they? Why is everybody so mad? Right. So this started to kind of last weekend when we started seeing photos of these boxes, unofficial ballot drop boxes pop up in Fresno, Los Angeles, Orange County, the state, GOP and county Republican Party's kind of took responsibility for them. Alex Media, California Secretary of State Javier Becerra, the state's attorney general, filed this season Desist letter against Republican Party. They've basically raised two points against these ballot boxes, one That some of them were labeled official even though they were definitely not official on to that. This is a violation of the state's ballot collection law, also known as ballot harvesting law. That makes it sound like you're stuffing turf builder in your envelope for something, so I think On the first point, the GOP has conceded, they said, You know, we promised these signs saying official are gone. The second point about Malik Collection is a bit more complicated. We're recording this on Thursday. This could likely end up in litigation, so we should say, As you pointed out, there is a law that allows ballot harvesting valid collection and the Democrats were all for it. The Republicans in the Legislature didn't vote for it. They howled against it. They said it cost them the election in some of the midterm races and 2018. So are they now? Just saying OK, can't beat him. We're going to join him. Yeah, This is as they've built their attempt at Valley Collection. It remains to be seen kind of what's the greater effective this strategically? I mean, you know the resource is that they're going to have to use to defend this, possibly in court could have possibly been used just to direct their voters towards existing ballad drop boxes. There are tons of official ballad drop boxes up and down the state. You can Google Katie with the early voting to find list and find a way to find ones near you. So it's not clear whether they're getting new votes that otherwise would have been captured in the existing collection and voting methods throughout the state. Is this really a wise use of resource is on the part of the GOP. I mean, Yeah, I talkto Paul Mitchell today who does for both parties is like a voter data grew and he said by his count, there's like 98 turned in and Fresno and he's like, I would bet every one of us was probably someone who already would've voted GOP. So What is this isn't a political stunt to draw attention to about harvesting. It is, isn't it from their perspective? Good faith effort on the GOP side to really make sure that people vote I mean, because it's uh it's a little confusing. I mean, there's about harvesting issue, and then there's everything we've been hearing from the president, which is Go to the polls. Don't vote early male voter, you know, male voting is problematic. None of that's true. It's fine. It's secure. But like, Like, what do you What's the political angle here? If there is one Right. I mean, I think you hit it on the head with this kind of strange dichotomy. I think as faras this strategy to me, it's kind of the halfway between a ballot harvesting, troll and kind of a legitimate operation that they were trying to get out the vote with, But it raises this question of Look both by mail the expansion of vote by mail in California this year. Sending every voter ballot was a bipartisan effort There was, you know, Half a dozen Republicans in the Assembly who supported this. Even legislators, who are upset that this initially was pursued through an executive order ultimately supported the legislation. Now take that in comparison to national Republicans, who have spent most of the year saying vote by mail is filled with fraud. It's kind of created this strange paradigm for the GOP, where on one hand they have to be like, Look as our president is saying. Vote by males fraudulent, But hey, while you're in the office, stick your ballot in here. We'll take it for you. And I think that sets up this strange reflex of having the defendant National Republicans when many California Republicans were comfortable phone by mail, and Scott, I know you talked to many election officials in Red counties who have used, you know, using vote by mail for years. And so it's It's a weird interplay of the national Republican Party, taking this really strong stance that I think ultimately has hurt the state and local Republican Party's politically

But in Harris are victorious. Governor Newsome will have to appoint a new senator to serve the next two years here in California, and well, there's been early speculation on names like State Attorney General Javier Becerra and San Diego State Senator Toni Atkins. Another elected officials told the governor he's interested. Mayor of Imperial Beach Search, the DEA sent a note to the governor with a picture of him in a business suit with a surfboard and water, nothing his intention to seek the appointments If the Democrats win because Pamela Harris may become our next vice president, I notified Governor Newsome like everyone does not is via Twitter that I'd like to be on the collection left to be the next U. S. Senator put out Open seat. And I think it's important to have someone who's not from the insider circle in Sacramento on someone that's ready to help clean up California and fight for our planet and our ocean from day one. Well and yes, I think it was the announcement that color base attention picture of you in a business suit with your surfboard. Right. The water's edge. Kind of embodying what it means to be from Imperial Beach. Yeah, you know, and you're a bitch, maybe small. What? We're mighty, You know, I've seen the names of some of the more high profile candidates and you know the reality of California's in trouble countries in trouble, And so we need someone who's used to doing things without a lot of resource is gonna support. You could get things done quickly, and that's experience. I've had thereby be in that experience that we need for the next senator from California and as the native Senate, California someone who rested 500 California the lifeguard for the state and for the city of Baby, I'm ready for the job and just look forward to being considered by Governor Newsome. Well, obviously you've worked with the governor, and in fact, you've worked as high as going to the White House when it comes to the sewage issue along the border, with the issues coming out of Mexico to impact San Diego County Imperial Beach, the city of San Diego. Everywhere else here with its impact that profile of yours with that fight has gone to the highest level. Yeah, so you know, unfortunately, because sewage issue is continuing to happen. I ve had to reach out from everybody from the president of Mexico, too. You know, President Trump We've met Got Governor knew someone. The governor of Baja California. So yeah, felt the times were like more like an international diplomat rather than a mare. But that is good practice good experience for what it takes to be an effective senator. To give you credit. Since the minute she was in office, she has support our first queen of the border. She's put a lot of attention on period Beach. In fact, her California director came to Imperial Beach to visit her stop is in very involved in this issue, so she's been great on the tissue as well as Senator Feinstein, but it's time for a new direction and and that's what I'm putting My My name in the hat or handed the ring And you know there is a perception out there at some points where you know, San Diego geographically being where it is. So we feel that the state of times may forget about us or things like that. You know, putting San Diego right back up there and kind of raising our hand and saying, Hey, what about us? Yeah, you know, Right now we have two senators from Northern California from the Bay area, So obviously we need a lot more Southern California repetition and the fact that Southern California needs a lot of help. We've seen that during this covert Christ of some of the highest rates, obviously in the country in Southern California, especially here in South San Diego and along the border, So we're in trouble have the highest rate of unemployment in the state along the borderlands question. Imperial County so We're in trouble. We need to get someone to replace Senator Harris. She gets elected vice president who's fighting for California and every California and not just the ones who can write campaign checks, right?

Hollywood moment: Harvey Weinstein's sentencing

"Today. The disgraced Hollywood producer. Harvey Weinstein will be sentenced last month. He was convicted of rape and criminal sexual assault and faces up to twenty nine years in prison. Prosecutors have urged the judge to consider what they called a lifetime abuse towards others even though for most of those alleged abuses. Mr Weinstein has never been charged. His lawyers have petitioned for the minimum sentence of five years saying that any longer could constitute a defacto life sentence after Mr Weinstein conviction the Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Junior said. The change had come to America. This is a big day. This is a new day and I hope women will will understand the significance of the jury verdicts. Today is. Optimism was echoed. By some of Mr Weinstein's accusers and their lawyers is a historic. I never thought I would see in my lifetime. Change has come today. I have a message for Harvey for all of Users Rape Myth perpetuators victim blaming and knows retaliated against sets. This one's for you. Your time is up. The allegations against him formed at the start of the metoo movement very public example of what remains troublingly hidden kind of crime. It would be easy to see his conviction and imprisonment as a high point for me to next. He'll face charges in Los Angeles for crimes. He continues to deny. Just how much any of these cases will change. Things is far from clear hustling surprised. Sasha Economists Public Policy Editor Mr Watson case certainly wasn't a slam dunk. Some people may have had that impression but it was by no means a straightforward case. These sorts of trials of radio really complex and in addition is to watch team faced accuser's stories straightforward. In a way they were very representative of a lot of these cases in the sense that they fit coach. Roy Do rape in being something that happens with a lot of force and a ski mosque by Stranger instead. These women told stories of complex relationships including ongoing contacts with Mr Weinstein off to the souls and typically juries have really struggled with this kind of cases in fact most of those cases that make it anywhere need a jury and to that extent. Actually very atypical case. Because of course Mr. One Steen's case as well as the accusations have all played out very very publicly of in multiple accusers. Zubin spelled out in the media. One thing that made it question unusual case is that the judge allowed extra witnesses women who would not pass the charges against Mr Weinstein to nevertheless testify over previous aqel bad acts that they had experienced at his hands. Allegedly it certainly was quite controversial. May well be part of the grounds of a possible appeal by Mr Weinstein team. And what would that appeal? Look like it's Hampson. No I mean concerns have been raised about whether Mr Watson could have affected trial in given all the media attention publicity particularly in New York City before the trial. His team tried very hard to get. The trial moved to somewhere where they thought he might face a forgiving jury that was thrown out. This is a long process. Take easy setup two year and I guess one of the questions now that people Rossi's while is he gonNA get out to bail can continue to monitor while that process is ongoing which is has begun wanted to run up to his trial. So you say the result is a bit surprising and and certainly prosecutors and plenty of commentators have held it up as a sort of watershed moment is a sort of a apotheosis of the of of the metoo movement that essentially was launched. By by these cases. What's your take on that I think? The watershed which is an awful lot immediately after the valid. And I understand it. I mean this was a high stakes trial. Which the Manhattan. Da. Couldn't afford to lose so they threw themselves out this only on the hands. I think as as many celebrity trials we have to be careful with Conclusions hair. I hope it will be a watershed moment. There's an awful lot wrong with how sexual. Violence is is investigated and prosecuted. But I have my doubts. I think the the real test will come when single women also group of women come forward to accuse somebody of rape without the media attention right without. Will the inefficacious if you will of the accuser has been an awful lot of emphasis on how powerful Mr Weinstein is but his accusers. Happen quite powerful as well. Essentially they had public opinion rooting for them. And I think the real test of whether the the Weinstein verdict will have a BRUDER EFFECTS. On how serious criminal? Justice Systems. Juries take these kind of complex claims will only come when we see an everyday victim. Come forward with with a typical claim of sexual assault. So what you're essentially saying. There is that celebrity. Justice is fundamentally different. I mean why do you suppose? That is I- celebrity justice in general is just is only certain. Becerra was it is just different from normal justice putting old big bright lights and attention onto someone being accused in this case Mr Weinstein. That's a typical way of injustice remedy a J Simpson trial which was essentially works like a soap opera. Essentially didn't have that much impact with how of the mothers were investigated then tried in Los Angeles and I think the same will be the case with the wider significance of the wanting conviction. Today that said there is of course important symbolic function to mocking. Somebody like Mr Weinstein up and holding his feet to the fire. So I said he wouldn't diminish the symbolic importance of seeing someone powerful like him wrote into a cooled. Convicted unlocked. Up is just going to be careful with suggesting that. Will the other huddles that stand? In the way of getting justice for everyday victims have now disappeared. I mean the one distinction here between Mr Weinstein's case and the OJ Simpson case is that Mister Simpson was was acquitted whereas Mr Weinstein has been convicted. Don't you think that that at least has sort of knock on effect sort of casts a shadow over over future cases gives future jurors a sense that That that there is an example being set there. Yeah maybe I mean future jurors in reminded with this case that rape doesn't look the way they think looks so it's been very helpful to have this very public lesson. If you will in rape myths that rape is a complex crime that said we pull people every year on their attitudes dissection. Rasmussen doing that. Insensitive metoo movement took off. And in that we don't really see much of a change in public attitudes to sexual harassment and indeed in America way would have hoped that reporting rates of sexual violence had increased most under reported binding crimes often me to after an initial bump reporting rates of back down to what they were before me to see. Let's see what happens next year. You know it always takes a while to get the kind of data but be careful with two inches at this point.

"Man last year, Javier Becerra says the decision follows a nearly year long investigation into the death of twenty two year old Stefan Clark, I want to be clear. Our investigation was confined solely to an examination of whether the facts of this case were sufficient to establish beyond a reasonable doubt. Whether a crime was committed by the officers, the officers said they mistakenly thought Clark was approaching them with a gun. He had a cell phone. His death sparked intense protests, New York's former mayor will not be running for president Michael Bloomberg said, he was confident he could beat President Trump in the general election. But he said he was clear eyed about the difficulty of winning the democratic nomination in such a crowded field in an editorial for Bloomberg opinion. The former three term mayor said he would not run for president. Instead, Bloomberg said he would dedicate himself to the beyond coal campaign. With the aim of retiring, coal fired power plants in the next eleven years and the beyond carbon campaign to move the country away from oil and gas ABC's Aaron Katersky House Democrats.

"Okay. So I don't know if you watch the show every day but yesterday, we talked about Jeff Becerra one hundred and thirty seven billion Bill, but but but billion. Oh, yours and people wondered whether this was his midlife crisis. But he was having. But apparently, there's no such thing. Because a some study we found. Have to study finds no evidence that a midlife crisis exists and people are actually happier in their forties. And fifties now, Brian you're around that age are you going to go get a tattoo in a mohawk or something? This job is my midlife crisis. No land. Joe's. Joke didn't land Brian. He did. So you know, that's part. Yeah. That's part of the thing. You know, you know, what men lose weight faster than women? This is something I've really a year but still anywhere. Maybe to. That midlife crisis is that he lost fifty pounds. Because you never know. I'm wondering if mine is that I found them. Well, so I'm no the question for the table is do you agree with that study because I don't agree with that? There's no such thing as a midnight believe there is. I I believe there is. Yeah. I mean, you see all the time. Right. I I've seen it in men. I've seen it in a lot of my female friends. But can't you have it in. I had a I guess a midlife crisis sort of after having his Abell like you go through where you're just like what happened that's called like hosts if I come back after having my hair is buzzed in bright pink. Like do. Not judge me because these are moments where like you just are going. Yeah. So many you can have a death of someone you love you can go through a divorce you can have happy things like having a baby, which is wonderful. But it's just changes in your life. This midlife crisis doesn't have to have anything that happens. You talking about a real crisis? Just a random all deal. You hit fifty and you say, where's my Larsen as a forty seven year old? I really resent this idea. The forties is your Midland. I plan to live till I'm two hundred. I also I do think midlife crisis comes at the wrong age and people's lives. You're going to buy a convertible by the time, you can hardly get out of it. Spokes caller mine is young let me tell you something the sports car. I need the jaws of life to extricate. And if you're wearing spanks in via the a lotta time. A lot of times men that maybe women to have an affair at that age too. That's a very common that use it as an excuse. There's something called a quarter life crisis to which I certainly had when I turned thirty, and I did die my hair. Can you can look up on Instagram? And I was like I need to do something makes me feel like I'm not I don't know. Like, I'm not old yet, which is ridiculous because thirty is really young. And I like partied my face off and went out. I was living in LA and I had a blast. I don't regret any of it. You should do things when you're young. So when you're forty and fifty and you whatever then you have these. I know. And by the way, I am not ages all ask joy, my nana's one hundred seven and she's one of the greatest people I've ever known. I am not I think all ages are wonderful. And I hate this crap. But people just go through crisis because they're going through crisis. But I don't think that everybody can do all those things when they were in their twenties got married young. I got married your girl. Then you say give me some friends. That is true. That is right. Wake up when you're like, wait a minute. I lost all my twenties. But not that happened to me. No, okay. We're gonna be right back. We have guests. Never know what I'm going to say. But today, I'm here with the facts, and I'm gonna make us think with the ladies of the view coming up. You see headlines across your screen all day, but you're busy. What do you need to know?.
