"Well, the bind Administration's been giving a lot of credit for their co vid. Rollout vaccines, and here's the thing they botched this thing royally. Joe Biden's approval ratings when it comes to Koven are really high, like in the sixties. Most Americans think he's done a wonderful job with Kobe, and that is really just an aftereffect. Of the reality, which is that the coven pandemic is waiting when things get better. Generally speaking, the president gets the credit, even if he has nothing to do with them. And the fact is that Joe Biden had pretty much nothing to do with Kovar getting better across the country. In fact, Joe Biden has in many ways made things worse. Why? Well, his messaging when it comes to masking and the vaccines is completely ridiculous, completely ridiculous. So first of all, when it came to the trenching out of the vaccines, they were developed under the Trump administration not to buy the administration. The plan for distribution was the was the Donald Trump plan, which was then implemented by Joe Biden. It was done by state states differ widely on their ability to vaccine vaccinate their citizens. So what does that leave for Joe Biden to do? Basically, the only thing left for Joe Biden to do was spread one message in one message. Only you should get the vaccine, and if you get the vaccine, you will be able to go back to your regular life as a very simple message. And it was the message that was backed by science because the reality is that as more and more Americans get the vaccine, and millions of Americans already had covered We're reaching her immunity. It's why you've seen the rates of covered plummeting in huge number of places around the globe, including in the United States, is why you have seen that the people who are still getting covered right now are people who are younger and healthier. Which is why the death stats in the hospitalization stats across the nation are way lower than they were anywhere near the height of the pandemic. And again as more more people get vaccinated. Forget about her immunity. Those people are basically impervious to Colbert. The rates of hospitalization and death from covert after you've had the vaccine are extraordinarily low, much, much lower. In many cases in the flu. If you have a visor or Madonna vaccine, for example, those air 99% protective against serious disease and death, which means that it is now much riskier for you to be walking around without a flu vaccine, and it is to walk around with Madonna or Fizer vaccine. In fact, since his extended suggests, because the flu vaccine is less effective than those vaccines that actually when it comes to the flu. Even if you're vaccinated for the flu, you may be safer, having gotten the vaccine for covert been having on the vaccine for flu. He said. Those were just data realities. The vaccines are unbelievable, Extraordinary scientific miracle. And we also know from the data that if you are having that if you have that team, you're not passing this on other people. This is a general rule. You're not passing this on to other people. It is very difficult for you to get it. It is very difficult for you to pass it on. The notion that you're going to be a main vector of spread is just a lie. So this is a really easy messaging routine for for Joe Biden. And it's important because if you wanna reach herd immunity you need maybe 60% of the population 50% of the population to either have had covert Work to have the vaccine. He gets that number. You have to encourage a bunch of people who may not be it's supremely high risk of dying of covert to get the vaccine in order prevented from spreading to other people. We just have a lot of different vaccines in the United States. But we we encourage people to get the vaccine even if they are not at very high specific risk, because we don't actually want them to pass on the disease to somebody who may be at a higher specific risk. It's why it's good for 21 year old 22 year old CIA covert vaccine Even if they're young and healthy. No on an individual level. It may not make any difference because you're not going to die of coveted 20 or 21 is a general rule. In terms of the overall system. You don't want to pass it on to Mom and dad. They're only a couple of reasons that I got to Kobe vaccine. One was I have parents in their sixties. I don't want to pass it on to them. The second was the bigger reality for people who are 20 or 21. Didn't get back to regular life. So you can take off the mask and go back to your regular life. After Marty McCarry of Johns Hopkins University didn't op Ed in The Wall Street Journal, just maybe about six weeks ago in which he said, Listen, once you've had the second dose of the Madonna or the flies or vaccine, you should take off the mask and you should get back to regular life. But Joe Biden can not say this. He refuses to say this. The CDC refuses to say this, so there are only a couple of rationales for their utter confusion over this, and neither one of them has anything to do with science. One is the possibility that bureaucracies just love power bureaucracies love.

Yeah, it was hard to square the circle with what Biden was doing before I to sit there and say maybe the should have checked into the voting laws and about this thing through before they even considered moving it. Where were you when it could have mattered? See they didn't think Major league baseball would do this, so it didn't matter what they said or what they did. They're used to having things just flung out of their mouths with no consequences whatsoever. There, Consequences now, real world consequences and people are being hurt by this people they claim to want to protect. Theoretically, I would think that the president of the United States should be interested in protecting all Americans. But that's just me. We don't live in that world anymore with that Democratic party Now it gets back to morning Joe himself, Joe Scarborough. He gets Emboldened, I imagine By Willie Geist. Imagine they're looking at the control room in their video feed going well, nobody's fired him yet, So maybe I can say something to or it's just to see why a moment where they're all desperately trying to pretend Like they give a damn about the working class in this country. Listen to him. Cut three. Go ahead. We'll make it doesn't seem that Ah lot of people jumped the gun. A lot of people move this All Star game, talked about supporting moving of the All Star game and yes, I do believe Major League Baseball. Moved the old story game before. Actually either reading the bill. Our understanding how the bill lined up with New Jersey laws with New York laws with laws all across the nation. All of a sudden, like Whoa, wait a second. People were leaping to conclusions. Maybe they should have read the bill. Maybe they should have this. Maybe Joe should watch MSNBC. You watch MSNBC in the afternoon. There's a show the late afternoon called afternoon joy or whatever the heck it's called with Joy. Reid, she has been literally pounding on her desk about Jim Crow.

Where suddenly Joe is going Well, Shouldn't somebody maybe read this thing? Shouldn't. Maybe somebody have known a thing or two seems like Major League baseball in the Bind Administration. We're jumping to conclusions. Now it seems like Major League Baseball and the Biden administration were watching MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS. NBC. I think I forgot to say them. That seems to be what's going on. But Joe doesn't want this on his hands. Now they're starting to see the downside of what they do. Of what they've done of what they've created.

US Officials To Hold Talks in Mexico & Guatemala on Migration
"Migrants coming to the U. S border. Thousands of unaccompanied teens and Children in U. S custody, some held in jail like facilities. More likely on the way. This is the urgent situation facing President Biden at the border today and an echo of the one he faced as vice president back in 2014. His approach so far is similar focus on the root causes. Today, he sent three top officials to Mexico and Guatemala to discuss how to manage the increasing numbers of people trying to reach the U. S. Joining us to talk more about this is Franco or join us and Przybyl, White House correspondent and Franco first tell us just the basics of this trip to Mexico. Well, I think this is a trip that really shows how urgent the situation really is. Most of the migrants to the U. S border are from three Central American countries. Mexico had been working with the former administration to keep them from making that journey through Mexico, but that largely stopped. Biden is now sending two top officials from the National Security Council and another from the state Department to the region. Roberta Jacobson. She will be leading talks with Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcello Abroad and other top Mexican officials. She was actually an ambassador to Mexico during the Obama administration, and she'll be joined by one Gonzales, the NSC senior director for the region. Now they'll be talking about how to manage the situation and also be exploring a joint development strategy for Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, you know, trying to work together to address the root causes of migration. Let's take one example. Guatemala What's on the agenda there? Welcome. Salas, again from the NSC and Ricardo Zuniga from the State Department will travel to Guatemala to meet with president they part of the President Alejandro Giammetti and his foreign minister, Pedro Barolo, and other economic and security officials. They will also meet with representatives from the private sector and civil society groups. You know, the big picture here is that President Biden feels that security and prosperity in Central America Are closely linked to security and prosperity in the United States. Give us some context here in terms of how Biden waiting when he was vice president, and maybe what he's doing differently this time around as president. Well, his vice president, Biden led a similar effort to Rio to address the root causes of migration. It was called the Alliance for Prosperity, and it provided a billion dollars to help police training, judicial reform and and corruption. This time around. He wants to offer $4 billion. Now I talked to Andrew Seeley about this. He's the president of the Migration Policy Institute. He said Biden is finding out the hard reality about this challenge that faces all presidents. And that it's not easy. The border is to immigration politics with the Middle East is to foreign policy. You know, every president comes in determined to do something focus on a different part of immigration. And ends up sucked into the border in some way. Frankly, Biden now owns this issue and the political fall out in a way that he didn't when he was just the vice president and one big difference in his approach this time is that the administration is going to be a bit more clear eyed about the realities of corruption at the highest level of these governments and Central America. The administration says they will on Lee give the money to community and international organizations. How has the Biden administration responded to criticism from Republicans who are claiming that Biden triggered this influx of migrants by reversing some of the restrictive immigrant immigration policies? Of President Trump's, You know, it's been a difficult thing to answer. On the one hand, the bind Administration says Look, we're going to have a more humane policy and going to rebuild the asylum system, which was largely dismantled by the former administration. On the other hand, they're saying Don't come now. And there's a sense that that message is a little bit muddied. The White House insists they've been clear they point to the thousands of radio ads and targeted social media ads in the region that they say have reached millions of people. But the numbers of people coming to the border are still high. And while the administration says that most people are turned away Children or not, and some families are not as well. And will Biden visit the board? Well, he said yesterday that heals go at some point, but there's no sense that that will happen in the near future. That's NPR.

President Biden has faced serious criticism from Republicans. Who are you? The president's reversal on many of the hard line policies of his predecessor is the reason for the surge of the border boxes. Griff Jenkins reports from a tent camp in Tijuana, Mexico. This is a camp of about 1000 migrants, most of them wanting to play for someone believing that president but it will help him. What's happening at this point is that they have set up right now.

The doctors here tell us that many people have sore throats, headaches and stomach issues, but that they don't believe they have Cove it. I asked if they're testing for covered, and they said no if they suspect The the migrants might have covered. They send them to a hospital, so they're not actually testing it. And it's very concerning to many of the businesses around here, saying that they're worried about the health prospects. That's Fox's Griff Jenkins. In Tijuana, Mexico. Republicans called the escalating situation at the crisis at the border of crisis, while the Biden administration calls it a challenge, the Department of Homeland Security secretary said on Tuesday.

"We're seeing the bind Administration shows today to release a report by the CIA from 2018 that said that the currents defacto leader of Saudi Arabia was actually responsible for the death of Jamal. I got to go. Oh, my gosh. Thank you. His name just zipped out of my mind as I want to say it. No, I am not a fan of Saudi Arabia. I've never been a fan of Saudi Arabia, but Saudi Arabia is one of our strongest allies in that region when it comes to Iran, right So Saudi Arabia has now also, you know, very, very close to normalizing relations with Israel. We had other Arab nations normalizing relations with Israel because of deals that were negotiated in part by Jared Kushner. So we have this kind of coalition building in the Middle East. That could be a pretty reliable coalition for us against Iran. And yet the bidet administration is moving in a totally different direction to appease Iran at the expense of this kind of burgeoning alliance. Now. My question is, How is this sucking up to Iran any different than what Trump did with North Korea that did not work and at least Trump had the fortitude to walk away from the deal when it did not work. But there was a lot of criticism about negotiating with desperate coming from the Democratic side. And now for some reason, they're getting cozy with Iran when it seems like things are starting to go a different way in the entire region. A couple of things. One is I'm not against negotiating with test once I'm not against diplomacy with desperate I'm against with the belief that we can appease despots. If we just give them a little of what they want. Dubbed the Satisfy appetite will be sated. It will not do it because we know that doesn't work and yes, when he when Trump went to North Korea Try the flatter and butter up Kim Jong un and said, Look like I can do for you. And, of course, none of that work because he wasn't about to be appeased. I didn't care about making his people richer. And he didn't believe because Trump also suggested I can also wipe you off the map. Let me show you what are missing, and he didn't believe that was for real. So it didn't work out. We it's logical now. Saudi Arabia. There are plenty of things that they do in terms of human rights that I think we all should find repulsive, very bad. But and they and I do think you know, cause showed she was killed. That's terrible. Do we understand how many people are being killed on a continuing basis who are not celebrities like the shoji off by the movies who room and Tehran? They just killed the wrestler. They were just diplomats in in Europe were just put in prison because he's different. That's under instruction from Tehran had been delivering explosives for terrorist acts that which take place on European soil outside of Paris against dissidents are the way of a lot of Americans. We're also gonna be at this meeting. Somehow we give the idea that you give your enemies a pass on these things. But you really tough on those who are your friends and partners. The Saudis look, Saudi Arabia is not a free country. It is a pro American country and in some ways, not always, it has been getting better. Not worse. It does not have as its slogan as its motto as its promise Death to America after Israel. It is not. It wants to be part of a pro American coalition. We wanted them to get better in terms of human rights. They shouldn't be putting writers and bloggers in jail. Women should have more rights. They do have somewhat more rights than they used to. But it is there's no there's really no comparison. You cannot say we're gonna be really tough on anybody is our friend and really do everything to conciliate. Those who hate us and want to kill us. That is not a smart policy because then it's you're better off being an enemy of America and you are being a friend or partner. So why? And this is really I'm really can't even wrap my head around. Why here? Why is this deal more beneficial in in Biden's mind? What? Why is it better to do the thing? The exact opposite of what you just laid out? Which, by the way, I think makes perfect sense Other than we have. We can't do what Trump did. I mean, is it is it because we're talking? That's There's there's got to be another reason There's got to be you. They're probably Yeah, I think you're right. Nothing. There are a couple of reasons to explore. One is anything Trump did buy things and must be wrong. And he's supposed to and so trump But try again. Trump wasn't going to war with Iran doesn't want to do that. Well, on the other hand, he's not going to say I'm more afraid of conflict and you are willing to say if you want to start a conflict, you'll be very sorry. Consider what we can do you without putting a single soldier on the ground. Consider kind. Of course we have compared to what you have do not provoke us. But what he was doing was that has been doing this putting tremendous economic pressure. With the very realistic notion in mind. At a certain point, the rules will say if we want to save Our power. If we want to remain in power, we're gonna have to make some concessions because we're being crushed economically, and that since 2018 When we began only began to impose serious economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran. The economy has been in free fall, and if it could remain in three, and he couldn't remain in people very much longer than either collapse, or they would have to make some serious concessions instead, by the thing now Trump did it. I don't want to do it. I'm gonna start. I'm going to see about maybe relieving some pressure, bring them back to the negotiating table. We'll see what we can do, and a lot of people, including by natural part of the Obama administration that negotiated this agreement, and they at least convinced themselves that no one else majority of members of Congress, not a majority of the public. As for polling, convince themselves that this was a good deal of this is good. A deal. As they could get you may remember. They started out by saying no deal is better than a bad deal..

"While we were finishing the DOJ request We told both houses the assembly in the Senate that we had DOJ request for information, and we were prioritizing that Barren contrast that joker with our governor, any questions, all right now, several things a remarkable about said Joker. So Cuomo literally offered up the defense that if I were on trial for murder at any point, I imagine I would you is because Hey, what difference does it make their dead? I mean, this is the governor who's well, differences to make how the people the nursing homes died. They're dead. I mean, couldn't any murderer that's on trial for murder? Say the same thing. What difference does it make? How the people are dead? They're dead. Can we just get on with things? Journey. Legal analysts Wendy Patrick here to talk about Whether there is liability with, said Joker, governor of New York Andrew Cuomo. I mean, when the first about the real world example that Cuomo himself used previously what difference does it make how they're dead? I mean, if we were to follow that logic My it all off base. We're saying if I'm on trial for murder, I couldn't use that same defense. I will be out of a job prosecutor. No, that is not a defense that we use. But you're right to bring the issue to the foreground because that's what people are asking is, Isn't it your responsibility to have accurately represented these numbers? Because, remember, even Governor Cuomo came out over the last couple of days and admitted a degree of fault for lack of transparency. Well contrast not from what we saw last summer. Remember, he was having a press conference every day. He's his leadership with her. Little bit is a model for the nation. Everybody was watching. It was new information to all of us back then he had Dr Fauci on all the time. But now that some of those numbers have been called into question, we not only want more transparency, but we're now looking through how these numbers reported could as something have been done differently, and an investigation now has bipartisan support. When you have Congresswoman Elise Stefanik of New York, who was calling for charges potentially to be brought against quota at what point does it become a criminal cover up? Well, you need you need to reach the point where there's evidence to support criminal charges. Now you can look at a 30,000 ft view and say, Gosh, it looks bad and what did they know? And when did they know it? But it's very different when you actually have done an investigation. Gilding admissible fax in a courtroom that in good faith lead you to believe you can get a conviction. That's a tough apart just across the board when it comes to looking into these kinds of allegations, even if when there's a wide disparity, as here and to the cove, it numbers Winning on that particular note. Intent has a lot to do with criminality. So let's say that there is evidence we know for a fact that he did he deliberately. Withheld information about nursing home debts. His former chief of staff release that information is now public. So if it was his intent to mislead people with that information Is that potentially reach a criminal offense. Well, potentially, That's the kind of thing that would involve providing false information to federal officials. And when you look at some of the sketches that they're looking at, it would be exactly that kind of thing. It would be intentionally misleading, falsifying, concealing covering up. This is some of the language from the statute that issue But the question the bigger question is, can you prove that was his intent? Intent is tricky. I can tell you that That's an understatement. You can look at what someone did and say, Well, circumstantially, we should be able to infer intent, but it's hard to actually make that final leap. But that might be something that federal prosecutors will look at. And if they do it in governor Cuomo's case you can imagine there are officials all across the country that would then worry well, that might happen in my state, too. But that's one of the reasons this will be very highly watched. I would anticipate you and I'll be talking about it again. Wendy Patrick legal analyst always go to talk with you. Thanks, Wendy. Thank you all right now. Think about some things here. Intent. That was interesting. And I'm serious. Imagine for a moment. I mean, When Cuomo with everything we now know. When he says. What difference does it make? How the people die in the nursing homes are dead. How is that any different than somebody who is responsible for the death of art now, in the case of Cuomo He didn't intentionally murder anybody. I'm sure that was not the case. Right, So it's not the example of first degree murder. Could it not be something along the lines of manslaughter? Manslaughter. You're not setting out that particular day to kill anybody, but your reckless actions result in the death of people. So you're liable, right? So how is anybody who would be tried for manslaughter in these states United? How could they not use the intro Cuomo Defense of Well, they're dead. What difference does it make? How is that analogous? How is that joker? Still the governor of New York and as when he points out intent, it's a really tricky thing to prove. That is because the standard under law provides benefit of doubt to whom Right to the defendant. On course, unless it's Donald Trump, in which case Damn the torpedoes! Damn doing any it real investigation. Damn calling Witnesses. Just damn the man. Right? Lt Hypocrites, liars. Really bad people. You know who I'm talking about Taking over some of the news around the state that impact you. The fort has improved trend for new cover. 19 cases continued yesterday. So here's the is something else you talk about. Grind my gears of the onset of the show. I mentioned just The lack of reporting of the actual facts about what's been happening with vaccines into our state. It is a fact period that we have consistently been receiving fewer not more vaccines under the by an administration that we were under the Trump Administration. Moreover, Vaccines plays have been increasing. Across the country while our supply's been dwindling. And that we've gone from receiving 6.9% of all the vaccines administered from the federal government under the Trump Administration, all the way down to 2.4% under the Bind Administration. You can reconcile that. However you want those happen to be the facts. You know what else happened yesterday? Did you hear anywhere?.

"W N Y c 93.9 FM and AM a 20. NPR News and the New York conversation. It's politics with Amy Walter from the takeaway. Getting the economy back on track, of course, is a top priority for the Biden administration. Entire sectors of the US economy remain closed because of the pandemic. Women, especially women of color have borne the brunt of this downturn. Just before his inauguration, President Biden introduced a $1.9 trillion stimulus package that would, among other things, give $1400 direct payments to Americans increase unemployment insurance payments and provide more funding for child care. Spoke with other long economics correspondent for The Washington Post, and Derek Thompson, staff writer at the Atlantic about the economic challenges facing Biden and whether this stimulus package is the right approach. Joe Biden is inheriting the weirdest economy. Possibly in American history. On the one hand, you look at the unemployment rate. You look at the leisure hospitality industries. You look at retail. And you think this is the worst depression in American history? By far, I mean, you have essentially something like a mandated shutdown of the lesion hospitality industry and has resulted in catastrophic job losses. Across industries that are disproportionately female and disproportionately low income. It is an immense crisis that includes not only lost income among these sectors but also a housing crisis. Evictions and in many cases, people are having a harder time making ends meet and feeding their family. On the other hand, You look at the stock market, which is it an all time high. You look at personal income, which somehow grew in 2020, because of the cares acts because of these stimulus bills, so the way I think about it is not that the horror of the economy is somehow illusory, but rather that it is disproportionally center in the part of the economy that rely on people getting out of the house and doing stuff. And when we can get out of our house and do stuff as I think we will be able to do in 2021. I think we are in a decent position. If we get things right to create, say, a quarter or two of growth in this country that we haven't seen in 100 years or maybe ever. Heather, I want you two to Talk about that piece that they're grazed about, Okay? This vaccine rules out. People feel confident. They've got all this money to spend. They start spending.

But you've written about this before that Those jobs aren't necessarily baxam already been automated. And some of these folks have have moved on. There's pretty widespread agreement that 2021. It's going to be to use a trump word, a rocket ship year for GDP growth for the economy and probably for stocks. But the big question mark is, how quickly are all of these jobs going to come back? How many of those 10 million people who lost that job in April? Our march of last year and still haven't gotten it back are going to get it back in 2021. There's a huge range of beliefs about how fast those jobs they're going to come back. But most of it is going to come down to two things one that Derek was just talking about how comfortable how quickly and comfortable to people feel to go out again even after they get a vaccine. And I was talking to a bartender in Miami and he said, You know, Florida is open. I go to my bar every day. But he said, Let me tell you a New Year's Eve Last year, I made $800 a New Year's Eve 2021. He only served to people the whole night. And so even in this in this context where things are open again, and you know how quickly you're gonna people gonna come back, and the other one is you rightly point out is the automation. We've seen companies like chewy that does the dog food and the various pet supplies online. That company has been having a great year and the online sales boom, but they just opened their first fully automated warehouse. And so that's a lot of jobs that are never gonna happen at that company, and that kind of thing is repeating across the economy, and so we just don't know how many of those jobs will actually return in 2021. That's a huge bonus on the Bind Administration. Have to take a quick break More of my conversation with Heather and Derek.
"bind administration" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Is Bloomberg Wall Street Week with David Westin from Bloomberg Radio Bind Administration will take a decidedly different approach to regulation from that of President Trump. Penny Pritzker, president Obama's secretary of commerce, says when it comes to the environment, the regulations are lagging behind were business has already taken us. Look, I think that that climate addressing climate change has been in one of the top four priorities. First, the virus second, the economy, third racial inequality and forth climate change. Are the four major priorities of the Biden administration. And I think that you'll see. I think the courts just a turned back some of the regulations or that Trump was trying to roll back If you will. Look, I President by is looking to make sure that we're leaving in terms of green energy and clean energy that were leading in terms of electric vehicles that were leading in terms of the technologies of the future. And I think that the regulatory picture will be encouraging that as opposed to something that's just trying to create regulation for regulation. Sam Point at the same time, couldn't hotel growth do you think No, no, no, no. I think said focus on climate and clean energy and electric vehicles at etcetera is about leading for the future. You're seeing demand for that that look at look at the valuations of the company's The car companies that air are leading an electric vehicles. The market is telling us this is where they want to go. That consumer is telling us This is what I want. And so I think this is about leaving is opposed to fighting to preserve our totally fossil fuel based economy that is, you know, we're gonna have a hybrid economy. In that respect. We've got to continue to move for the sake of our planet towards cleaner and clean your energy consumption and a better climate policy. One of the things that we are anticipating is that there will be more requirements for disclosure by corporations on things like the effect on the environment and other issues involving what is typically talked about his environmental, social and governance. Yes, G sorts of issues. You think they will actually change investment patterns as an investor is a shrewd businesswoman. You think it would change investment patterns? I think investment patterns are changing. You know my experience in my own corporate life, both on the boards and in businesses we own is our workforce is demanding that we change the way we do business. Our stakeholders are demanding that we change the way we do business that we're more sensitive in terms of the way we do governance that were more sensitive to sustainability. That we said goals for ourselves around diversity so that we are able to behave to a set of standards that are living up to the values that are everyone involved in a business whether it's your employee base because customer base Your supply chain demands the view. So I think that actually the marketplace is driving this and frankly, the government is catching up. One of the things that we heard in Janet Yellen's testimony for confirmation with a lot of questions about taxation surely come for the Republican side. How nervous is American business about increased taxes? I think that American businesses focused right now on the solving the crisis. The virus, the virus crisis that we need to get everyone vaccinated. And that we need to make that a transparent and reliable process which I have every confidence that the team the president elect Biden has put together will be able to do. I think not number two. They recognize we've got to help small and medium sized businesses. We got to get the service industries back in order, and I think and and functioning and get people traveling again. That's such an important part. Of our economy on and then I think there will be a focus on infrastructure. So I think the issue of taxes is not front and center right now. I think what's on the mind of American business is really we need to get over the hump and over the hurdle of conquering this virus. We do have the science and hand the question is now how do we We've got to get the distribution of vaccines and the execution done, which we will, the faster the better. The clearer it is in terms of month to month who can get vaccinated and how fast is really, I think essential for confidence building and for decision making for most Uh, corporate leaders so that they can plan I think then. Really, Uh, the government needs to attend to infrastructure. RND spend Skilling. That's Thea's. I understand the second priority for this administration..
Iran’s president blames Israel for killing nuclear scientist and vows to respond at the ‘right time’
"Joe biden could be facing a crisis in iran when he takes office the runs top. Nuclear scientists was killed. Daytime ambush friday. The scientists was considered the architect of iran's secret nuclear program that was halted in two thousand three while. Nbc news has not independently confirmed details surrounding his death. Iran's foreign minister has implicated israel in the attack but israel has not commented on the allegations. Join me now now. You're a hawk former state. Department senior adviser and host of sirius. Xm that global experience treat a policy of the quincy institute for responsibility in statecraft and author of losing it. Enemy and colonel lawrence wilkerson former chief of staff for secretary of state colin powell. So i'd like to start with you. Treat it what exactly is happening right now. What are we hearing. Well the latest is happening. Is that the iranian president. I've come out with a statement. Essentially saying that iran is not going to walk into what he called a trap by israelis to escalate and and create a war because that is in his assessment with the israelis wants But it is not clear if that is the view of other elements inside the country. Some of this debate is starting to be taking place in public in which the argument that is made by the other side is that these assassinations continued to take place precisely because in their view the iranians have not responded harshly enough to previous attacks and the only way of preventing future. Attacks is to respond harshly. This one if that happens however than there is a very significant risk for a major esscalation potentially war which according to ruhani is what the Always looking for curl wilkerson. How unusual would it be for the notes to have not been informed of this. Do you believe that the white house knew that this was going to happen. It would be extremely unusual. Maria theresa I have to believe that was informed Trump's whole effort now seems to be to be foul the recent election. So i don't think he's very attentive to but my peyot at sectors state is and i'll remind your viewers of what's up their defense robert gates Now my chancellor. William and mary that the saudis are willing to fight the iranians for the last dead american. And i would add bb netanyahu too much in yahoo in that. I think that's what we're looking at here. They want as a major outcome. A war as a middle ground outcomes they want a bombing campaign by the us against toronto nuclear facilities and as a minimum amount They want to foreclose any possibility of the new president. Joe biden reentering the joint comprehensive plan of action the nuclear agreement with iran and. It looks like they're well on that road to success to follow up on that. Because i think the what the colonel stating is quite implicates the perhaps the role of the white house in this we know that any who has been a very strong ally of donald trump donald trump has been very clear that he is an ally of israel but also want also was the one that was responsible for pulling us out of the nuclear deal with iran. And the idea that we're hearing possibly is that donald trump perhaps did this. No had israelis did this informing donald trump. But also is this netanyahu's attempt to do something under this current administration that he knows me not able to do with a biden administration will the binding administration has certainly picked up a where. The obama administration left off in terms of wanting to return to diplomacy and use the tools of diplomacy to box in bad actors. If we rewind we know. The iran nuclear deal was less about iran's as a terrorist nation and more about eliminating the ability for iran to get a nuclear weapon. That yahoo was opposed of the saudis. Were closed. But this was a coordinated effort between european countries including russia and the united states with the united states. Pulling out that really opened the door. Before is israel and the saudis to look to other avenues to influence the united states. You also had with trump national security adviser john bolton who was in iran war hawk and so some of that still remains netanyahu just last week was meeting and talking with mohammed bin salman the crown prince of saudi arabia. So they're looking at a ticking time clock of being able to behave in ways in which the international at least the united states will not be speaking up. An opposing their efforts so That's the key thing is how much can they. Box in. A biden's options By engaging the united states under a trump administration or while trump is still commander in chiefs treatise of the. Us has done officially commented on what occurred. What is your take when this idea that. Perhaps the trying to do is box in the president elect wyden. I think that's absolutely correct than i think it's also correct would counter wilkerson said that There was probably some sort of implicit green light from the trump administration for netanyahu. Go forward with this. However it's also important to recognize that. Netanyahu must also have calculated that biden. Probably does not have the political will to inflict impose a cost netanyahu if he does these things to box in biden and i think it is up to the biden administration to prove netanyahu wrong. Because i doubt that netanyahu would have gone down this path unless he felt that it was pretty much cost fee from him not just from trump but also from biden
Justice Ginsburg reveals she's battling cancer recurrence
"Ruth Bader GINSBURG has recurrence of her cancer and is. Taking chemotherapy so I. JUST WANNA play out a scenario here and get your thinking about it. Let's assume that. There is a vacancy on the Supreme Court between now and next January twenty and mitch, McConnell and Donald Trump. Decide to do the opposite of what they did with Merrick garland refusing what McConnell did with American, refused to have him about. Trump nominates a conservative justice to replace Ruth Bader GINSBURG. He could even do that after he loses the election in November. There's a lame Duck Senate and Mitch McConnell decides to push that through while he still has the votes. What would be the appropriate response from people on your side of the political divide to such a scenario? I. Mean I think you know maybe mass protests on a scale that we have not yet seen Ryan, I mean we've seen I. Think again and again protests, I we? The women's March where the which were the biggest protests ever up until that time I? Think those have now been exceeded by these black lives matter protest and I think that if you. I would like to think that you know in such a situation. You would have people in the streets and mass once again and I think one of the things that we've seen with these most recent black lives matter protests is how protests can work. Rate is how they can I don't I'm not sure I. I am sure I don't think they would stop. Mitch McConnell from I'm trying to think of a non obscene way to describe what Mitch McConnell with due to the future of democracy. Rape and I don't think that they would stop him, but you know you never know i. mean even the protests around Justice Cavanaugh. At least bought people a week right when those investigations were going on and and Jeff Flake voted to. Continue the investigation for one week and so. You know it would certainly deserve a. A mass uprising were they to sort of. Book the problem that we've had. It's a big problem in this country, and that it has been highlighted by the nightmare of the trump administration is minority rule. You know that you had minority president for the second time in. Two decades that you have a Senate controlled by a small minority of the country. That is able to put. People onto a supreme court that will. Again sort of rule against the interests of the majority I mean I think there's for obvious reasons the constitution is like has been written such as to head off a tyranny of the majority. What we have now a tyranny of the minority, and if Donald Trump were able to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg were able to deal the death. Blow to Roe versus Wade. You know sort of a preemptive deathblow to any kind of big sweeping economic legislation that a binded administration would need to pass in order to shore up a quickly failing economy and A. catastrophically failing health care system. Rate I think if the democratic process fails in giving people a way to address that than the way to address, that is through mass non-violent action.
