Covert nineteen vaccination plans cleaning protocols and even which data in science should guide the reopening process. About an hour ago. I spoke with mayor lori. Lightfoot and schools chief janice jackson. I began by asking dr jackson. How close is the district to a deal with the teachers union. And what are the major sticking points right. Now as i've said this week we are trying our best to make progress. I think there's no reason why we can't have a deal in cr students back in the classroom on monday. I know so. Many students and parents have expressed our excited. They are about that opportunity. So that's what we're planning for a with regards to the union. I think some of the sticking points that we've been talking about or the past few weeks related to testy vaccination and accommodation still are outstanding on. But we're going to continue to work car because we know what's at stake in. That is making sure our kids get a quality education mayor or jackson at what point does either or one of you arrive at the bargaining table to close the deal. Well i think we've got to make more progress grants. I think it's important for your listeners. To know that since june we've met with the t to now over seventy times. It lasts two weeks every day including saturday and sunday. The schedule time is from eleven to five every day and we would have expected by now to make a lot more progress in the last week alone. We've given them to different on comprehensive plans one plan which we updated and we've given them. I think that covers every single issue. Eight different issues from ventilation testing to plans and protocols what happens if there is a a positive tested linked to schools. So we're serious and we're going to be made it table but we've got to see some progress it. We've got to see a series of purpose on the other side. For example today we got a proposal from the other side. Include things like defunding. The police and having the cpu dictate housing policy in the city. Now obviously neither of those things is appropriate for bargaining on teachers contract. So we need them to get serious to come to the table. We can get a deal done. I am confident that we can. We keep waiting and hoping that we're actually going to have some issues that we agree on the issues that we've been talking about now for weeks. We still don't have agreement on a single one of those issues and every other bargaining experience. I've been in both as mayor but also in my private sector life. You focus on an issue you resolve it and then you move onto the next issues. We haven't been able to do that with you. Which frankly to that by since there is no deal you know. Kindergarten through eighth grade did have the option of returning starting this monday. Do have the option Starting this monday to be back in the classroom but even a large group of aldermen have called on pushing that date back a week. Dr jackson is that something you'd consider to avert a strike and get a deal done in the interim. Yeah as i stated earlier this week we remain steadfast in the fact that schools should re-open for students on monday february first. So we're still there. We're committed to that date. I think that the district has gone above and beyond from a planning perspective as well as all of the planning that has been happening for local school level. We have proven let us not forget. School has been in session with ask three weeks with students in our cluster program in students in our pre k. program in we have been successful. We plan for various scenarios we to implement our plans with fidelity. We know that we can do that for our kindergarten. Eighth grade students nets. Will we intend to do starting this monday. Even if i can add brandis. Let's let's also know that we're we're talking about this in the context of case rates dropping acitivity rates dropping. All of the metrics that we follow. We've been following since march of last year or all trend in the right direction and to those automated said. Let's kick the can down the road and get more time seventy times that we've met multiple times over the last two weeks we can get a deal done on a purpose and putting our kids i at the table and they have that faye mayor's was just going to add. That said you know this was calling for teachers to be vaccinated more teachers to be vaccinated before a reopening. Why not what. What could happen if you just wait for that. We have a. We have a comprehensive plan for getting teachers vaccine which we've had on the table for quite some time. Obviously gotta do it in the context of the reality of the limited supply of vaccinations at all the other. Frontline workers who've actually been outlawed in the grocery store worker sanitation librarians. I mean the list goes on and on absolutely we want to prioritize.

Weeknights at ten on talkradio six eighty WCBS. There were no Russia. The file cabinet was empty the entire time. Billy Russians, they had with the Russians that Steele who was working with the Democrats. Those were the Russians the fusion GPS Russians. Fusion GPS is the firm that the Clinton campaign hired to thirty up the Trump campaign. They did their best they give it a shot. This is all just straight out of the Chicago school, politics and the Arkansas school politics. That, you know, play dirty, but a win that is the left model the way you heard was Representative newness talking about this new Russkies, no Russkies involved the Russians may have tried. But they did not actually infiltrate the Trump campaign the FBI actually failed to be so either and they gave it a good effort date. There were no secret meetings. What what amazes me, actually? Is I will still have conversations with folks who firmly believe that the Steele dossier is one hundred percent true. Including the hookers in Russia going up and peeing on the bed that Brooke long slept on this. They swear it's one hundred percent. Even though Christopher Steele said, I don't know if any of this stuff is true. Beta part of it. You know? Why should fact matter Jonathan is in his car Jonathan good morning? And thank you so much for hanging on. Thank you taking my call eight. There's three very important things as subjects we should be really talk of every now one is we are being invaded or our borders and Mexico is getting away with not doing their part and stopping this.

The five court today today extreme where we should actually shut the five quarts down because of Asia be existing anymore and the third one would be Hillary Clinton. Okay. Talking about the uranium one uranium off or Russia's toil trees into America and highest level of our government. Yeah. But of course, that was of no interest to to Robert Muller looking at looking at what's what is the old saying, you know, don't don't criticize the splinter in someone else's? You have a log in yours. I mean, that's basically they weren't going to go after Hilary of. This was the assumed now many of us hope that now with William bar that they will actually take a look at whether or not laws were broken laws clearly were broken. But James Comey does not have the final say on what to do about those laws that were broken. He. Oh. All this. Involved in dropping all the uranium America's uranium to Russia is treason, and and that's anybody involved. Okay. And we need to find a who these people are every one of them. Yup. Thanks for your call Jonathan assure. Appreciate it. Bruce Elliott show. Talkradio six eighty WCBS bucks events initially search Amazon must not be published yet. So we're we're talking about a book that may not be available yet. I'll keep searching to see if there's an alternate name of the book, and we talked about in the first half hour of the show this morning. The book written by cardinal Robert Sarah who works for the Vatican. His book is called evening draws near and the day is nearly over and in it he contends that the west will die. That Islam will invade the world, and completely changed culture and politics and moral vision. We'll look this this if you know history, and this is an new this is part of that particular faith. This is what they assume is part of their moral responsibility. As they see it that is to go to other cultures convert people to Islam by the sword. If necessary. And a don't acknowledge that there's any other faith, but Islam, there's no sense of plurality in their mind. So it's not a surprise. But it is somehow heartening to hear. Somebody of the cloth. Somebody that high up in the Roman Catholic church saying, hey, look, this is what's about to happen here..

"They can look at the same numbers that we look at in. They come to the opposite conclusion. Because it's there's so many moving parts. You can see what you wanna see, right? So it always kind of struck me that the when it comes to kind of like empirical evidence in looking over, you know what? What has happened in these different examples of where there has been more or less intervention or stimulus or whatever. It seems that it's kind of like. I'm not saying that there's it's completely infinite, but it seems like almost everybody can get the answer that they want out of it because people will look at one example or another. And like you said, they'll, they'll, you can cite say the new deal as a data point for helping get out of the great depression or even worse World War Two or something like that. But of course, there's another way of looking at this data. I realized that like Austrians light like yourself, you're not against using empirical evidence to demonstrate what happened in a particular case, but it seems like the Keynesians are just as guilty of coming in with a kind of an outlook. You know what I mean? Like they have their world view as you said before, which is that that government intervention is going to correct market failure. You come in with your your more like human action based outlook, but is there what is the difference between the way like the April kind of sumptious that Austria. Makes compared to a Keynesian like Krugman. What will sure. So I think you're right that that's really the thing that irritates me the most about it is not just canes. There's also Chicago school people to like that are committed to the officiant. Markets pop assists, for example, may can explain anything like the huge financial crisis in the big stock market crash stocks, plunging forty percent. You might think of anything that would upset the idea that financial markets are officiant in yet, you know, a true blue believer from Chicago school inefficient markets have other says in and I'm making this a literally would say stuff like this. They said, well, yeah, I mean that just shows how hard it is to make money in the stock market. You know if the fact that even these these guys run edge funds was computers of their supposedly lost a boatload of money that just shows how hard is the beat the market. You know, it's so no matter what happens it in two thousand six. When everything was humming along nicely, they weren't biting their fingernails. Maybe the market's not officiant now. So no, whether things are going nicely and smoothly or whether it's huge crash, either way that proves the markets. Isn't my point is that's that's fine. You can have an uproarious say, this is the way I'm gonna look at the world as an economist in any kind of, you know, like supply and demand, that's one way to parse reality, but you can't test it. You know what I'm saying? I can just decide beforehand. I'm gonna look at the markets with through the lens of supply and demand analysis in. It's not that that's right or wrong. It's just a might be useful or not insertive certain situations, but I'm not testing it per se. The framework itself in so by the same. But these guys, the thing that annoys me is they don't seem to realize what they're doing..
