My whole family loves listening to the world and everything in it. Every day I know will enjoy today's program and I hope you will well two good morning. The government requires appliances in your home to use less is water and less energy but are they. So that's the thing that might be high efficiency. But then if I'm having to put it on higher settings of water is it really high efficiency also Holland is beginning to rethink its acceptance of prostitution as having no victims will tell you why that's happening. Plus a report from last week's March for life in Washington and Cal. Thomas makes an argument for a shorter election season. A much shorter one. It's Thursday January thirtieth this is world and everything in it for listener supported world world radio. I'm Mary Record. Nick Eicher Good Morning. Now here's Ken Coddington with today's news. President trump on Wednesday signed the US S. Mexico Canada agreement into law. That is a major rewrite of the trade agreement known as NAFTA THE president put pen to paper at an outdoor signing ceremony and told those those gathered at the White House quote. We are finally ending the NAFTA nightmare. This is a colossal victory for our farmers ranchers energy workers factory workers and and American workers in all fifty states. And you could almost say beyond and the president was not the only one celebrating the signing of the US MCA A.. L. Speaker Nancy Pelosi touted changes to the original bill that House Democrats negotiated with the differences in enforcement about protecting American workers. I protecting the environment and prescription drug piece of that. Trump made replacing NAFTA a top priority of two thousand sixteen campaign. The auto industry history is a major focus of the US it requires automakers to get seventy five percent of their production content from within North America to qualify for the packs. Duty Free he benefits that means more auto content would have to come from North America not imported more cheaply from China and elsewhere and at least forty percent of vehicles would also have to originate in places where workers earn at least sixteen dollars an hour. The leaders of the United States Canada and Mexico signed the deal in late. Twenty Eighteen Canada Canada has yet to formally ratify the agreement with opening arguments wrapped up in the impeachment trial. Senators are now getting a chance to ask questions but it only in writing chief justice senator from Iowa. I sent a question to the desk senators on Wednesday submitted questions to the presiding officer Supreme Court for Justice John Roberts who then read them to the house impeachment managers and the President's legal team the question and answer session can last up to sixteen hours and is expected to resume today. It allows lawyers on both sides to make their final points before the senators take a vote on whether to hear witnesses amid the corona virus outbreak outbreak in China a jetliner evacuating roughly two hundred Americans from the city of Han arrived at a California military base Wednesday. Dr Chris Brayden with the Centers. As per disease control told reporters the Krona viruses spreading rapidly. We think in China We think it is appropriate that our citizens who are in the epicenter of that outbreak and Wuhan Be Repatriated home for their own safety. The jet touched down at March Air Reserve base near Los Angeles Angeles after a refueling. Stop in Anchorage Alaska during that. Stop a ground crew wearing masks in white protective clothing screen. Everyone on board for symptoms. Health officials also screened screened them and Wuhan before they boarded the plane officials say some passengers with cough fever or shortness of breath remained in anchorage. For further assessment. Those who arrived in California yesterday will undergo additional screenings. And they'll be temporarily quarantined until health officials can be sure they're healthy. White House adviser. Jared Kushner is defending the Middle East peace proposal that president trump on veiled on Tuesday after Palestinian leaders angrily rejected it. Kushner played a key role in drafting getting the plan and he said Wednesday that Palestinians rejected it before they even saw it but he urged them to take another look doubles the territory that they have the ability to have it gives them a lot of economic incentives if they're willing to change their governance structures. You need to have freedom of press you need to have respect for human rights you need to have credible institutions that coruna stay but he said the deal gives the Palestinians quote a pathway to really achieve everything. They've always spoken about meantime. Israel has postponed a move to annex large parts of the West Bank prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu said the cabinet would vote Sunday on extending Israeli sovereignty the dozens of Jewish settlements as well as the Jordan Valley but that move risks provoking backlash from the Palestinians and the international community the Pentagon on Tuesday raised the number of US service members numbers who suffered brain injuries at Iran's recent missile strike world radios Anna. Joe Hansen has that story military officials. Now say fifty service members suffered suffered traumatic brain injuries in Iran's missile strike earlier this month on an Iraqi airbase. The White House initially said no Americans were harmed about the Pentagon later reported that eleven service members had injuries before raising that. Total to thirty four. And now fifty Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant. Colonel Thomas Campbell said the sixteen additional service members were diagnosed nosed with traumatic brain injury of the fifty. He said thirty one have returned to duty reporting for world radio. I'm Ana Johannesen. I'm Kath COMINGTON and straight ahead. The frustration over low flow plumbing fixtures losses signs from this year's march for life. This this is the world and everything. It is Thursday the thirtieth of January twenty twenty. So glad you've joined desk for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good Morning. I'm Mary record and hand. I'm Nick Eicher first up today. Water regulations and appliances now even president trump is fed up with those low flow. Toilets and so-called efficient dishwashers. He's railed against them in recent interviews and rallies people have flushing toilets ten times fifteen times as opposed to once. Now this may seem like an odd target for presidential ir but a lot of people share his frustration earlier this month. The Environmental Protection Agency announced announced plans to roll back regulations on low flow toilets faucets and shower heads world radio correspondent Katie Gawltney reports. Do you need gene Moore Ashley. Langford lives in an area. She calls countryish. It's close enough to have major retailers within just a few minutes drive but put on their acreage surrounded by livestock things get dusty and dirty quickly and with the big dog a cat and three young home schooled. Kids playing for does a lot of laundry. You know what I have a laundry day so today is laundry day so on laundry day. I'll probably do round at least five loads not counting joining if we do any sheets or extra things like that about a year ago. Her old washer broke and she replace it with a new high efficiency model. It's supposed is to use less energy and water than older models but efficiency doesn't always translate to getting the job. Done Langford start to load of wash to illustrate her point. You can actually see the amount of water that's going in and I'll be able to see it turning the close around around and some of them are dry Langford compensates by putting her washer on the extra heavy load and Max Phil settings just to get to cover even the smallest loads some things. I have to be washed more than once. So that's the thing it might be high efficiency but then if I'm having to put it on higher settings of water is it really high efficiency but how did it start. Why is our satisfaction with water appliances and fixtures circling the drain in Nineteen ninety-two President? George H W Bush signed the Energy Policy Act. The law made one point six gallons per flush a mandatory federal maximum for new toilets other water-efficient policies relating to washing machines. Sheen's dishwashers and the like followed in the mid nineteen ninety s of course the goal of water conservation is laudable biblical. Even some would say Reverend Mitch has has cox leads the Evangelical Environmental Network. He says carrying about water conservation as part of loving your neighbor particularly with what he calls a strain on our current supply from in the Mid West to the western United States. We are running out of fresh water. You know we were pumping more water out of aquifers than we've ever done before new. Mexico is probably the worst state off off in California Arizona Colorado even Nebraska and Iowa are all going to have continuing having pressures on having water security in the coming years and and those who support low flow standard say frustration with appliances as misplaced. Jeff Porter has been in the plumbing industry for over forty years and he now trains new plumbers low folk toilets. The modern ones that good. They work actually go two point eight gallon local or ultra low flow. Komo in my hash had one about four or five years and it works perfectly well as long as they have maintained Popley. You don't have to flush ten or fifteen times that somebody said that you do. Put Her said the multiple flushes come into play with older models of toilets. That people tried tried to retrofit or maybe only replace part of the toilet and not the whole thing so low flow toilet. That really works may not be just a pipe dream but some policy experts say laws and regulations aren't the best way to encourage environmental conservation. Brennan Steinhaeuser is a political consultant in Austin. He and his wife work doc from home and there are often sticks people there once his frustrations that come with the low water pressure that a rise in a full house with efficient appliances and fixtures aren't just practical optical their ideological too. I think that for things like Water or electricity and of the daily as a family or individual those whose decisions being made by that individual and by that family so to have government come in and mandate things or tell you what the price of something is always leads into some kind of economic distortion and usually a disaster or that Commodity or service so government data. Show that though they may not realize is it homeowners with low flow toilets could be flush with cash replacing old inefficient toilets with waterson labeled models saves the average family one hundred and and forty dollars a year and thirteen thousand gallons of water. Steinhaeuser says that's why people should consider efficient appliances. Not because they have to. Yeah I mean I do think it's important to protect the environment to have clean air and clean water to use resources in a way that efficient to the best of your ability and the pellet makes sense for you and your family and for society at large. I just think that if you look at history the most inefficient way to manage those resources is their government. Even the trump administration roles backwater regulations efficient appliances and fixtures are likely to stick around. Local governments offer rebates to homeowners who install them and most consumers are interested in saving money and conserving resources as long as they really can do. Both with one flesh the world radio. I'm Katy called Ni reporting from Dallas Texas Coming up next on the world and everything in it the seamy side of Amsterdam now obviously before we get started here. This story requires a warning to parents. It may not be appropriate for young years. So if you're listening with the kids you might WanNa hit pause right now and just come back to this later right fair warning. The story concerns human trafficking. Amsterdam is the capital all of the Netherlands. It's known for many things aren't gabled houses and intricate canal system. The house where young and frank hid from Nazi persecution is there as swell but Amsterdam's also ground zero for trafficking where young women are displayed in storefronts and the locals. CONSIDER IT business as usual. Prostitution toossion is legal. There now Christian activists are trying to change that and we sent world radio correspondent Jenny. Lind Schmidt there to tell their story growing up in the Netherlands. Natasha bows heard. All the accepted. Arguments for legal prostitution and we have advocated are people in the Netherlands with a lot of South Brooklyn about prostitution. So like everybody says says like if it's visible we can control it so and if we if you would criminalize it would go underground and prosecutions just a normal job. It's deal this job in the world and as an adult. She started working working with women coming out of the sex industry and she soon realized their stories didn't fit the accepted narrative most had backgrounds of abuse and poverty that made them vulnerable to manipulation into prostitution many did not stand in brothel windows of their own free choice in two thousand twelve Boston of friends documentary hurry that showed Amsterdam as an end destination for global sex trafficking. That was their breaking point and they began to publicly challenge long held Dutch beliefs beliefs. About the freedom of sex workers. We say people make choices like make a brave choice to be in prostitution. Sometimes it's not because they have choices because there's only one choice left and that's because of being because of money issues because of liquor trauma the crowder something like that. That's what we want to tell the whole story. Not only the started a blog called exposed to spread that message then. They started looking for alternatives to the Dutch system and ended up in Sweden lawmakers. There had made an innovative change in two thousand. The ask themselves Who are the people in prostitution? Who are the people that are bikes? That was kind of revolution revolutionary But it worked out actually. They have like less trafficking but also less people in Prostitution Shen. Less people are buying sets what has become known as the Swedish or Nordic model outlaws buying sex not selling it instead of arresting prostitutes authorities offer them help and social support if they want to get out of the business and that approach is working prostitution in has dropped by half in the last twenty years in messages intercepted by police traffickers. Say Sweden is no longer a good place to do business. Last last year exposed started a campaign to bring the Swedish model to the Netherlands by spring. It had gotten the forty thousand signatures needed to force debate in the Dutch parliament. Element and it's also bringing the issue back into public conversation. The Dutch don't want their country known for human trafficking fourteen years ago. Fritz Ralph put in his wife started a ministry prostitutes called bright fame. He's been several nights a week. In Amsterdam's Red Light District building relationships with the women who work in the windows most come from the poorer countries of Eastern Europe and South America. Ralph it says legalization was supposed to help the government track women and keep them Steve but in reality officials don't even know how many there are. I'll use the bills or maiden win. Eight thousand girls in over the year all show maybe ten percent or maybe people that is service we'll say in the Netherlands prostitute must pay for licensing and taxes so the Dutch legal system actually becomes part of the web that keeps her. Enslaved most have large amounts of tax debt. That make it even harder to break free. The biggest. It's is better does his legal precision so anybody vague. She's fine choose by her so she has her own company. She's free to choose hope. It would also sees this shift starting to happen. Percents stop says now Christian seasonal normal is from this time our because all here in our Saddam this push rush above the usual prostitution and as you the very first thirty little coffee. Changing bus is the key to change is a multi pronged approach punishing buyers is essential but women also need job training and in trauma. Counseling and bus also wants to help and educate those addicted to buying sex. This is something that it has to happen in the Netherlands but it also has to happen like in Europe because it's national problem. It's not a Dutch poem. Prostitution is also legal in Germany and Switzerland but in the last ten ten years Norway Iceland France and Ireland have adopted. The Swedish model bosses for abolitionist movements to work. They must work together for world. Radio I'm Jenny. Lind Schmidt reporting from Amsterdam. Well maybe you live in an area with Carpool Lane set aside. Hov Lane stands for high occupancy vehicles and you know the rules really aren't that hard to understand Hov to means one driver one passenger Hov three one driver to passengers. You get the idea. Well human nature being what human nature here is. Someone's always looking to bend those rules but one guy in Arizona. He took it to another level. Here's how officer Martin Sotero explained it. The Motor Unit. That pulled up next vehicle looked inside the vehicle and at that point pretty much realized that a passenger in the front row was actually a skeleton. Actually skeleton awesome but a well dressed one. Give him that. Mr Skeleton had on a jacket with a hood and fishing hat and you know to sit up straight. The seat belt was insufficient so so the driver tied his skeleton to the seat with a rope. Apparently this driver thought of everything except this just know that if you are caught you're going let me cited points and are going to be added to your license therefore it's just not worth it. Yeah that's just a cost benefit ratio. Is it worth the risk of a four hundred dollar ticket to get there earlier earlier versus just leaving earlier new. It's the world and everything in. I'm looking at amassed Stephen Annette who were. I'm listening to Anthony in every beat of your tiny Today is Thursday January thirtieth. You're listening to the world and everything in it and we are really glad you are good morning. I'M NICK ANCHOR AND I. Mary record heard coming next. The twenty twenty march for life last Friday's march for life drew tens of thousands to the mall in Washington. DC maybe into the hundreds of thousands. Most people had made their plans to attend long before they knew that president trump was coming. But the president's appearance did add additional excitement. We had reporters there and Kristen. Flag even brings us that story forty seven years that's how long pro-life people have been coming to Washington. DC in January to the march for life. The atmosphere feels like a combination of family reunion and PEP rally outside the National Museum of African American history and culture marchers gather pro-life groups handouts swag signs backpacks hats and gloves. Karen Sorenson represents feminists for life so my signed nine It's double sided. The sign right here says peace begins in the Woo- This is the logo for female. You know you have male and or female gender so this is the logo for the female And then the other side says women deserve better than abortion most signs are professionally produced. They convey messages. That reinforce enforce the overall theme of the March pro-life is pro-women. Besides read shoes love. Choose life human rights begin in the womb. I am pro abundant midlife. I vote pro-life the silent. No more campaign signs carry more sobering personal message. I regret my abortion and I'm silent no more I'm recovering. My last divorce was in nineteen or two thousand Two Rachel's vineyard and I went through recovery program. A large contingent of women carry those black and white signs down Constitution Avenue men walk alongside them they to carry black and white science. But there's you say I regret lost fatherhood. Good morning to smile. Marchers have to pass through metal detectors to reach reached the area near the stage where the president will speak as helicopters fly overhead secret service and park police bark commands the inside the secure area marchers gather and wait for speeches music blares over the loudspeakers in the Sea of mass produce signs ends some hand painted one standout the hint at the personal stories. That inspire pro-life commitment so we ask about the signs and the stories behind them. Here's a sample of but they're answers. Here's a young woman named Brianna mines less successful artistic pro-life because love is less I'm contests egg. And that's a big part of why I'm pro-life because like so. Many children with disabilities like cleft palate are aborted and they may not be easy but all of his precious even if it's GonNa take a little bit more work. Erica is from Manassas Virginia. Her Science says thankful three months was too old back in nineteen eighty four pregnant with me when she was young and she was afraid she didn't feel like go to her family. If you you try to have an abortion but found out that she was too far along she kept me and hid her pregnancy and then gave me up for adoption but then and regretted it and got me back a couple of weeks later and brought me home to her family and they were supportive. They took her and me in and so. I'm thankful to be Tair Philip. A young Asian man has a sign that says smile. Your mom chose life worshipping at one seat might. Did you change your mind as a middle aged woman named Cheryl also has a handwritten sign. It says when I was sixteen I was pregnant I was sixteen eighteen scared and pregnant but her life matter to on so I got my daughter when she graduated from. I'm George Washington University and I just want to say that we talk about what Lavas I mean. Talk about. White hate is love and sacrificing yourself for others. Love your neighbor and hey you sacrifice others or self got it got it right. When also holds a sign my sign in some an unborn child says life is good? I've got the versus Providence. Thirty one eight nine speed up passage says. Open your mouth for the mute for the rights of all who are destitute. This is my first march for life. I might two sides of the issue I. My mother was an unwed mother in nineteen sixty eight. I was born and placed for adoption. An and then Did make some good choices and ended up pregnant myself unmarried and through the grace of God. Oh that child saw the day by day and And Saunders grateful for people who choose life and that God's plan plan is good even when things are tough. A young mom named Melissa was at the March with her husband and baby g chokes up when asked about her sign as it might run Kim who I met Nice Wall and the part of our family and so she is my daughter's an and we just think about all of the baby to go get Melissa remembers her experience during pregnancy pregnancy. At every appointment the doctors asked her. Do you want to know. Do you want the test to screen for down.

I don't WanNa know in honor of her friend Kim Melissa the security this sign. It's picture of my my sister Cam my friend Kim with Down Syndrome holding a newborn baby and it reads an estimated estimated ninety percent of babies with down syndrome. Never GonNA chance to live their lives because of abortion. Here's the thing aunt. Kimi has really awesome life and there's no prenatal gate attached to protect for world radio. I'm Kristen Flavin with reporting from Susan Alaska in Washington. DC well coming up next an excerpt from listening in this week. A conversation with Sandra mccracken. She's she's a singer and songwriter. And for more than twenty years. She's been a leading voice in Christian music. She released her latest album twenty eighteen. It's titled Songs From The Valley The record explorers lament suffering and healing and host. Warren Smith starts out with the analogy of a broken bowl. It's listen Sandra I know you know the work of Kotofuji Maura and he often talks about this Concept it's an ancient art form. I think it's pronounced where the ceramic bowls oils that are broken and then they're put back together using gold in the crack places. That's that's the solder in the the broken bowl. Aw because it's got gold in the broken places is actually much more valuable than the original. I was out in in California fuller seminary and got to see one of these bowls and was there with a group of artists in Monaco. was there he put one in my hands and it's profoundly beautiful so it's the value of the gold itself but it's also the fact that somebody had to put that back together and had to take the time to reconstruct something. There's so much that I you know from an artistic standpoint that I don't know but I could experience it from holding that in my hands and say yes and amen like this is this is is something that I feel like it resonates deeply and Heino that Even in in our church community and in the practice the more honest we it can be in in bringing forward who we really are with the cracks exposed. The more we find the freedom to still be a vessel that holds beautiful earful things for our life. I mean there's so many implications to that. There's something for me that I thought of a couple of days ago during like our prep for Easter. And we were. We're talking about When Jesus his on across and in the seven last words he says to John and to Mary says like you know John? This is going to be your mother now and Mary. You Go home with John and you think in that moment. He was like putting together a new family structure sending them out because they needed something something like that. What an incredible affirmation of like he continues to like? Pull things together and say you're going to need each other. You're going to need a home. You're going to need a system system to make this work. And that's the incarnation bit right. Like he continues to affirm who we are bodies our every little detail about the a cracked bowl would say like this matters. And not a sparrow faucet aground without the will of father in heaven without his attention on it and I think that ball really reminds me of that attention to detail and the renewal of all things that is Sandra mccracken talking with Warren Smith to complete conversation. You can find listening in wherever you get your Papillon's Today is Thursday January thirtieth. Good morning to you. This is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm nick and I Mary Record. Hey Nick only two hundred seventy eight days until the next national election. That's it. That's it feeling exhausted already spell so is world radio commentator CAL Domas I love Ireland for its natural beauty people some of its food. It's Musee Z.. Kits writers and especially its elections. They are shorter and less costly than ours and designed to engage citizens and boost voter turnout on January fourteenth Irish. The Prime Minister Leo Voter Car Call General Election for February eight that means a campaign of slightly more than three weeks in the process. The Irish parliament and dissolved now. What a delightful thought if only the US Congress could dissolve at least occasionally unlike Irish politics US election campaigns increasingly resemble Oh endless wars? They cost too much and never seemed to resolve the conflict. multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg says he's willing to spend up to one billion dollars of his fortune to win the Democratic nomination. If he doesn't win he'll use that money to help the eventual nominee defeat president trump some estimates put the cost of twenty twenty ad spending alone it over six billion dollars so Bloomberg's contribution will ensure this year's presidential campaign sets another record and as soon as or possibly before this election agencies and ends people will be talking about twenty twenty four and twenty twenty-eight it never ends does any of this time and money spent produce real solutions so obvious problems such as reforming entitlement programs in reducing debt. If it did wouldn't those solutions have been implemented by now too. Many politicians are are focused on getting elected and then re elected not on solving real problems. All of this contributes to generally low voter turnout compared to other developed nations. That gives gives power to activists on both right and left and that skews the results and gives no clear picture of where most Americans would like to see the country go consider how often on the party's exchange power in Congress and the White House. Why do we elect a liberal like President Obama and then eight years later elect president trump? Who has been enacting and promoting outing? The conservative agenda. Ireland isn't the only country that has sane campaign and election practices. Canada held its longest election in nineteen twenty six from announcement. Devoting took ten weeks in Great Britain election spending a strictly limited in Germany. Political parties may not release more than one ninety ninety second televised political ad during the campaign. Many countries hold elections on weekends making them more convenient. Not every country's campaign and election practices may maybe worth copying here. But why can't we learn from those that are the only thing stopping us is our lack of will for world radio. I'm CAL Thomas Tomorrow. Critical race theory. What is that exactly? We'll talk about it on culture culture Friday and we'll have your listener feedback. That and more tomorrow.

Six Million Dollar a Day Man
"Hello and welcome to the daily beans for Monday march. Second Twenty Twenty today the South Carolina Primary Super Tuesday an update on the corona virus. A peace deal. With the Taliban trump loses two major immigration cases trump nominates ratcliffe for the job. Again trump cuts funding for rural schools. And a big block of good news. I'm your host. Ag and with me today are Jordan. Cockburn Hello Reader. Lou. How are you? How was your weekend? Goods Will Gouda yes. It was a relaxing actually every time. It's so funny. Every time I did nothing Friday. I tried to do nothing Friday. I did actually do a bunch of stuff on Friday like run all the errands that I don't normally get done in you know during the week but To me that still feels like nothing. Yeah Yeah it's You know weekends. It's interesting 'cause for us. Sundays are Mondays so Saturdays. Become our Sundays which is usually one-party day. So I feel like it's tie. It's like at the time that you take for you know gathering yourself. Yeah but I write all day Saturday so yeah for me. No Egan Steve Norwegian. Anyway we have a lot of news. This is actually a pretty jam packed. Show so we should get too hot notes notes so it appears that operation chaos or whatever which is the push to get Republicans out to vote for Bernie Sanders didn't have the impact. The trump campaign thought it might which I think is important to note going forward in the upcoming races in States. That have open. Primaries Biden took South Carolina handling this weekend with forty eight point four percent of the vote sanders in a distant second with nineteen point. Nine Steinmeyer came in third with eleven point. Three Buddha judge with eight point two. Warren was seven point one enclosure with three point one and then Gabbard with one point three All delegates were awarded to Biden Sanders. Who GOT THIRTY? Three and eleven respectively which closed the gap in the total delegate. Count Putting Bernie ahead. He is in first place with fifty seven delegates. Joe Biden is in second place with fifty three and Buddha judge in third with fewer than half of the delegates. That Biden has at twenty six and everyone else is in single digits. It's crazy. How just in one state it jumped to a place where I think most people were predicting it would kind of be the whole time. You know. Just looking back at two thousand sixteen. South Carolina is a big state. Yes and forty percent of voters Democratic voters in South Carolina are white and Biden. Got Thirty three percent of those than Sanders got twenty three percent style with ten point. Five six and let's see here. Fifty six percent of the electorate is black and binder and sixty one percent of those votes with money getting seventeen so important here to note that older voters make up the largest part of the electorate. So here's how the age brackets breakdown voter. Seventeen to twenty nine went for Sanders. Forty-three to Biden's twenty-six voters aged thirty to forty four one to Biden thirty three to twenty nine for Sanders and voters forty five to sixty four which makes up forty two percent of the voters in South Carolina. Went for Biden. Fifty one percent to Bernie sixteen and finally those over sixty five which is twenty nine percent of the voters went to Biden sixty one percent to Bernie's eleven that means seventy one percent of voters are over forty five so it stands to reason by did so well in South Carolina totally also he. Did you watch his victory? Speech did it was the best I've seen in this whole race. Yeah and I think void. He was articulate. Way What we're did you bleed bleed of that. Yeah that's great. Were incredible speech to he did. Yeah Yeah Yeah he did and people I think both of them had great showings at night. I think Sanders. Obviously he didn't do as well as I'm sure he would have liked to. But he like the gap closed. You know as the numbers came in a little bit but I think both of them handle themselves incredibly well and Biden did have like a decent man of Jabs. Kind of at Bernie in the whole revolution talk but That's fine this competition. That's totally fine. But it was Subaru uplifting watching his speech because I had a moment where I was like you know you all know who what candidate I want. But if we end up with Biden in the White House with the amount of coalitions of support that he has across the country. You can't deny those people you know that are that are doing amazing things. The fact that everybody was so energized in that room and Biden was pod cat in the middle of Jordan's emotional ramble. Cat was like yes. I agree by regret. I mean I just I just like moderate is Bruce Willis one of my biggest fears. Sorry I keep trying to shifted away from the podcast just because they WANNA get stoned head forgets it but but part of my fear. Sometimes when I think about buying him being the nominee is I think he's not going to mobilize as many people to get out the vote and then down by the D. as much as someone like burning might that has a really strong grassroots thing but when I watched that my brain was like okay I see a lot of passion here you know and so that was good to see. Yeah Yeah and there's arguments opposing that to never know until it happened. Always you know that's true because I think one of the major points that people who don't want Bernie to be the nominee make our that he can't win the down ballot Yes I have heard that too. And so it's just it's an interesting you know sort of back and forth once again one of those things. We're just not going to know until it happens because polling South Carolina had Biden at twenty-seven burning twenty three so the the hell the large disparity there. I I guess what it came from. Was they just to suck at polling in South Carolina Clyburn. Endorsement made made of come may have made of him. After I made of Kim. We're all that's the US every time. Associate Birth. Joe Neil degrasse. Tyson says your star stuff and actually come. I might have. I forgot what the Fuck I was. GonNa say Obvious Library. Oh Yeah Yeah. I don't remember if his endorsement came before or after that pool after I think came after I think it. I think it did come. After and that was the endorsement and very mobilizing I imagine it was and I saw a pole somewhere on CNN. Or something I think where people I think something like. Twenty three percent of voters in South Carolina said the clyburn endorsement was very important to them. There you go. Yeah so it was a pretty big one. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I actually expected. Bernice do a little better in the state But I did too. I think that they may be pulled younger. People who didn't show up and I this is the thing that makes me so angry. Show up well under might not just be that right because maybe younger people are easier to reach in in the polling stuff so they had a larger yeah sampling of younger sampling of young. I'd I'd be interested to see those pills. Yeah I was expecting him to get pummeled. I don't know just the history of civil rights in South Carolina and as it relates to Biden in the work that he's done legislatively compared to burn even though Bernie is one hundred percent of grassroots activist was was there during the civil rights movement on the ground. Doing a lot of things you know but I think Gay just didn't have eight years in the public spotlight right okay. All right and Biden being a right hand man to Obama who's obviously incredible. Yep and all. Those tire came in third meaning. Buddha Judge Warren and Tulsi. He dropped out now. Well realistically seasonal path to the nomination I guess. So but why spend all the money and then be like? I just wanted to see if I could do it. And then we kind of them for it. I love your work. Yeah yeah sure I feel like he did it to put Climate Change Front Center at all the debates. Yes Fair enough but I saw tweet which which was fascinating to me. It was like I wish that he had put all that money into Senate races and more well he can now. He can now or like by some newspapers in red states and higher teams of journalists to only write about fossil fuel. Well no he's not nearly as rich as Bloomberg knows what Bloomberg should be doing. Yeah I know we talked about this before but stars done a lot for environmental justice which always disproportionately affects people of color and so he always on specifically talks about that does and I think he has a very As a white person listening to another white person talk about issues of racial injustice. I feel like he's very effective and he seems to have the support a lot. More of black voters in South Carolina. Even though he's pretty much new on the scene right. Yeah assuming you bring up the fact that you're white and he's white to say that you don't have the lived experiences of people who are disproportionately impacted by environmental policies. Yes yes He did also spend. Was it. Twenty two million dollars. He spent a lot of money. Compared I think Biden was the next Second most spent in that state so I think he was betting on in South Carolina to yet but then yeah but then he dropped and then trump said oh bloomberg sucks or whatever. He wasn't even on the ballot now. Tolsey hasn't dropped out. I think she should and then I started wondering what about. There's gotta be meetings taking place. At least that night there has to be phone calls between the Biden Camp and Warren Buddha judge and closure to talk about when they're going to drop out and I think it was Jeff Zeleny who this was reported. But no one talked about it He said that he had talked. To somebody inside Bein. Camp who said they are? They don't want Warren or Klobuchar to drop out before Super Tuesday. They're urging worn cliche to stay in the race through supervisors through Super Tuesday. Because they're worried. That Bernie could run away with Massachusetts in Minnesota but if Warren Klobuchar are in the race Massachusetts worn home. Warren's home state Minnesota's clover sharks home state then they could probably Siphon votes away from Sanders in in those states now I report that is news only without nuance and comment. Because frankly I think it leaves a bad taste. That Biden would see them only as Bernie spoilers and not viable candidates in their own right especially them being women And so that that rubs me the wrong way Something else we learn as we go into Super Tuesday Bloomberg has said he will not drop out for Super Tuesday. I mean that makes sense because he spent all of his money but interestingly he's not made any advise after Super Tuesday Bernie has said he will not take Bloomberg money. If Bernie becomes the nominee or ever currently Bloomberg is running a six million dollar a day campaign. What would his angle? I can't figure it out at first. It seemed like you know. He said Biden doesn't seem viable or whatever but now after South Carolina and I think if you have really any commonsense Biden was gonNA start doing well at some point in time. So why why why is he what? Yeah I don't know maybe maybe attack to attack Bernie into attacked trump. I think is is got to be what it is. His strategy has to be to get biden the nomination. That's the only thing I can think of or at least not Bernie or trump. You know I can't think of any other reason that would be I mean. Isn't he going to Siphon votes away from Biden on Super Tuesday right? That's what I would think with moderates? I don't know and he's also making a lot of efforts to connect to black voters to right now. Seems like a direct marketing always knew he was going to suck it that. Yeah yeah that's true. Maybe him being like this totally like state. Hey maybe I could imagine him saying. Hey I'm the stop. And Frisk Guy. What if I enter the race? Make everybody over by you know what I mean interesting. I and I'm just. This is all speculation. Yeah right because then that becomes will then even though he has a ton of money no he must be getting some kind of kick back from that. He wouldn't just do that out of the kindness of his stone. Cold is he might just getting just getting strongly about him. Sorry not kindness. Maybe just whatever it takes to get trump office and he maybe honestly believes. That Bernie can't do it. I don't know I really don't know so interesting. Also fucking interest and how else would like an older billionaires? Think he older billionaire. And this isn't I shouldn't just generalize like this there are people who think that You know because of what Bernie has said in the past about you know Russia or Fidel Castro. Or whatever and that he's a democratic socialist and that has the word socialist it that he he would be worse to run against trump than another candidate and there are people who have a valid opinions about that and then there are people who have vowed opinions to say that that is not the case But if if I had to guess which Camp Bloomberg was in I would say it would be that camp near and I'm not saying it's right or wrong and I'm not trying to generalize saying that people who are as old as Bloomberg Bloomberg would think that way. I'm just betting that if if the if he had a feeling about it and he said you know he's he's called burning a communist on stage which Republican talking point. Yeah he has hats socialist literally republic until two thousand thirteen. Yeah Yeah Hey. Dan But neither direction. I feel the party wants to go and the party probably agrees and that might actually make the party. Vote who he wants to really win Which is again all speculation So we are on the precipice of Super Tuesday. Where over a third of all delegates will be awarded Biden is hoping his win in South Carolina were will propel him into better outcomes on Super Tuesday than he's been polling. I think it will And social media is awash with calls for Biden to announce a VP. Mostly calling for it to become a la- Harris or stacey. Abrams ahead of Super Tuesday. To bolster his chances. Wow No presidential challenger has ever announced their VP choice ahead of the convention and gone on to win and did a little research on this for you. So you don't have to in nineteen fifty two Republican candidate taft announced his VP head of the convention and he lost to Eisenhower. Reagan tried it in nineteen seventy six and lost Jimmy Carter Jerry. Brown tried it With To Pick Jesse Jackson as his VP in Nineteen ninety-two and lost the nomination. To Bill Clinton and of course Ted Cruz picked Carly Fiorina in two thousand sixteen and we know what happened to him so I I don't know the history of picking and early. Bp is not good. But I don't know what do you think if he picked a if he picked a strong. Vp candidate could energize the younger people that whose vote. He's not getting right now Well I've heard the Kamla hypothesis more so than any other. I think yeah in so I fucking love Carmela same and I think that would be a really strong ticket for voters at the same time. Though the beef between Kamla invite in that happened leading up to the point that she dropped out is kind of. Like if you look back on that Shit. It's almost a little girl. Yes exactly it would almost seem. I don't WANNA say disingenuous. On her part the situation itself would seem a bit disingenuous and less and less. Your idea is a unity ticket Right which is to be like. We can overcome our differences to defeat trump. Yes so can you. Yes and that would be a pretty powerful message considering the beef that they had in the in the earlier totally I agree. Yeah so I mean it could be could go either. Could go either way Some people are suggesting a Biden Warren ticket which I don't know I would think it would probably be a sanders Warren ticket. I've taken specific note that I don't think Warren went after Sanders when she should have and I think she didn't because she she could be. Vp is now. She's doing that now. I mean I could imagine I could see her. If she's peeling votes off anyone that would be. It would be Bernie into competition. You know she should. She should be drawing distinctions between them. I Like Elizabeth Warren. Very very much as I've said on twitter and as I've said on the show multiple times she's my very close second and she would be an amazing president and I think she's fucking rod yeah and And actually something I wanted to point out. Was She actually. In terms of certain specific policies. I like hers better than Sanders on certain things but particularly what comes to Lgbtq issues but then you think sanders could pick as a running mate. Yeah I don't think I thought Liz for a moment. But because she's starting to draw those harsher distinctions between them. I don't think so anymore. I'm not sure because some people are saying Tulsi and if that happens I'll be mad. I wouldn't people are just. I think people are just saying Matt. I don't think that I've never heard a single person. Say That positively or her Tony. React to it positively which makes me feel it's just created to chaos. It was positively and widely floated in two thousand sixteen. I hope it and he said he was considering it no. I don't think he said he was considering. But a lot of people really really wanted not only endorse him but to be his. Vp Do you think other than Warren? Yeah I think warrant is the only pick you think so. Honestly you could also do Stacey. Abrams but I don't know that she would run with him. I haven't heard her say she would or wouldn't and I also think in fairness to Liz. If you just got twenty nine million dollars in the month February you would stay in the race you know whether or not you saw path forward behind you end up in February so I I can see him picking someone like a younger Congress. Men are going to go into that. Like million like young senators. Afc Any of the squad and too young to be BP. I think she might have. That would be a huge upset. And or just someone along those lines thinking freshman Congressperson Huh. There's I don't really progressive. There's a ton of them. Yeah and I don't know if they're thinking about this at all but picking a more. Moderate candidate for P. P. Considering Phoebe doesn't really do so much about Roku exactly Yeah I wonder if he would do that because his base would also give him lot of. Shit though for picking someone. Well that may not be for Medicare for all or something and Ro Khanna because roquetas has appeared a lot on Bernie's behalf one of his top endorsers and That might be a real thing. I think he's old enough. I've seen Tammy Baldwin floated okay Because she's from Wisconsin so it hasn't mid West vote That makes sense. Yeah so yeah. I'm curious I I. I'm very excited for Super Tuesday. I WanNa see what shakes out. I WANNA see everybody is standing. Could warned pick as a VP. Because of him I don't know I feel like it would be amazing. Amazing to have Sandra's weren't ticket quite frankly fifty seven both saying mom and dad. I've always like early on my dream. Ticket was Warren Harris. I I wonder I don't think I in this is not like I don't WanNa see two women. I just feel like there's too much sexism this country for two women ticket to win. I just do and that's I don't mean to be a Naysayer. I JUST. I feel like that's the case. Yeah I think that's Unfortunately I mean we. We have to consider that especially as women you know. Just think I mean. Trump met yet not under one not in terms of who you support. I just mean X. Essentially just looking at the realities of how voters in America feel about women as was demonstrated in twenty sixteen. Yeah so you're not saying it's because two women can't do it. It's because you're afraid that there's so much misogyny and other people will say the exit two women can you please? I'm just clarifying for the masses about to email. The that's what I'm saying I'm saying of course. Would I vote for two women? Fuck yes I would absolutely I would. I would love to see that but my point is I think. There's so much misogyny and sexism that they wouldn't win I think Warren has would be more likely to pick someone that's more moderate as a VP. Sanders Emir Buddha judge. Yeah that'd be interesting. Warren Buddhist judge took. It would be great. Yeah very interesting but most likely to be sanders or Biden. I think I think yeah I think right now But here in all the other thing too though I I saw Sarah Kinsey or tweet out like if everyone who wanted to vote for. Warm voted for warrants. She she could do. She could take it you know but I think a lot of people are trying to strategize. Now there's tweets out there. People held back their mail in ballots in California to see how South Carolina went to see. If they were going to vote for Joe or Elizabeth you know or for the right they WANNA THEY WANNA throw their hope their vote behind the person who they think is GonNa win and not who particularly love and Sarah were saying. Look vote for who you love. This is the primary Vote for who you love. Vote for who support. You won't feel sorry about it. You feel better about it. I love that advice and and then everybody just backed the whoever wins like you know and I I really appreciate that because I think a lot of people are now second guessing. Maybe There Buddha Judge Closure Warren vote to vote for Biden because he's more viable. But if that's not your number one don't do it although Biden did He has come around. He's not just about shoring up the ACA anymore is now talking about a medicare option for all so we have to thank progressive candidates like Warren and bringing for pushing somebody like Joe Biden to before For a Medicare for all option. Yeah can I ask one more question before we move on What do you all think about the differences between dropping out before Super Tuesday or dropping out after if you were a candidate in this race as it stands now one of the you know not pulling high. Candidates are not doing as well. I should say what would you do? Like what do you think is the on one hand? I think you would want to wait until the other primaries. So you can see really you know. Get a better look of what the entire country feels on the other hand talking about viability of candidacies. And who they're GonNa who the votes legitimately are GonNa going to. Those people dropped out his estate in doing it from a more like strategy standpoint What do you think how no it's it's hard to say? I can see why style dropped out. Even though he invested so much in Super Tuesday but I can also see why others won't WanNa drop out having invested in Super Tuesday. There are again also. There are backroom deals and strategies like Biden getting closer to stay in to keep Minnesota from going to Bernie. None at you know all these like. It's not just about who wants who vote for your person. We don't have one national primary. You know everything has to do with what states have gone before and what states are coming up one their make up is how many are young voters are there? How many black voters are there? How many who should I watched it? I do and how should I play it? It's not just like it's not just like playing blackjack you're playing bridge You know there's just so much strategy in it in behind it that I think I would have to look at sixty different factors to decide if I was going to drop out and now Personally I if I were Tulsi I would drop out. She has no path to the nominee. I wasn't even thinking in my brain candy. Though about people to digitally Klobuchar I was just GONNA say judge closure. I don't see they have a path in upcoming states and I don't think they're going to take much on on Super Tuesday but they might be in the race to spoil it for somebody else I don't know and I don't have those like moneyball mathematicians around me right now telling me why who is staying in the race to do what and how it could benefit any other factors or number of candidates or why it's good for Biden or why it's good for Bernier why it's good for Warren and so it's just so hard for me to know without without getting all of the data. Yeah it's funny I I feel like Mrs. Just me speaking candidly. I'm not saying I don't like these candidates I feel like people to Jamie Club. Darsur drought. I see viable Pats Mission for them however Warren is coming in second or third in a number of very delegate rich states so she -fornia showed up to second place in the polls and like you said twenty nine million dollars in February. Had she had less than a million dollars in the bank going into. February twenty nine million two. I think she she has I if I were her. I'd stay in for Super Tuesday. If I were booted judge enclosure I'd dropout and throw my money behind somebody else. Endorse another candidate But I also don't want to downplay what what those two candidates could pull off one super Tuesday. I feel like it's just super Tuesday is just so huge that I feel that you just have to wait and see how you do. Yeah just Jefferson. Just it's a one o'clock on. Sundays is the current polling just so our listeners. Know in case you haven't been taking any super Tuesday pulling the two biggest most states California Texas Bernie is at thirty four percent in California. Warren is at seventeen percent. Everyone else is under fifteen percent. And if you don't crack fifteen percent California you don't get any delegates and then Then in Texas. It's a Bernie at twenty nine Biden at twenty and Bloomberg and third God Damn so interesting. How differ every state is? Yeah yeah but I so crazy but she could really she could really take delegates. Yeah and she's pulling in second or third in a number of states so it's but so you never know what's going to happen. They're totally. Yeah so if you if you treat it like a ranked choice situation. If she comes in second in a ton of states she could end up with as many or close to as many delegates as the winner just depends on it depends delegate count in the state of the state and it also depends on how the state hands out its delegates. Sex is all or nothing you get all to twenty-three or you get none While I believe I'm correct on the check fivethirtyeight though basically saying that from their perspective they're not sure whether or not it'll be Bernie or Biden who ended up Super Tuesday has the most delegates they see Bernie with a slight edge from some polling but ultimately it's anyone's game as delegates after by win Wednesday rolls around so well we will go fucking week. You guys will soon find out all right and Before we head to the break here Actually just go ahead and take our break right now. No because after that we have not. Let's take a break right now. We're GONNA come back with a peace deal with the Taliban trump losing two major immigration cases and a a brief Summary of what happened with the mcgann ruling Which you can get more details.

Are EVERYBODY WELCOME BACK DURING? What do you have for us today so the US signed a peace deal with the Taliban on Saturday promising to remove all U. S. troops from Afghanistan within fourteen months presumably marking the tour that's been going on for eighteen years The US has said that they will remove our troops only if the Taliban promised to not use Afghan Leeann to attack the US or its allies. What's important to remember though is that the Taliban doesn't control all land knock controlled by the government. Their breakup of the Taliban and other extremist group says still control some land. I saw a map that marks you know all the territories in who has claimed to everything and it's quite a mess and there's a lot of contested areas still too so there's the issue with that. Is there the potential issue that people bring up is when the troops leave their fears increasing that they'll take the absence of US troops as an opportunity to grow those sort of British like the vacuum that created Isis right? So that's definitely what a lot of Republicans are saying in response to this. They're not super happy about it. John Bolton naturally he's coming back good old Bolton. I don't want to hear from you yeah John he said. The deal brings an unacceptable risk to America's civilian population legitimising. Taliban sends the wrong signal. Isis and al Qaeda terrorists and to America's enemies generally Bolton wrote in a tweet and add that our director of national intelligence is Chad right soon to be Radcliffe. Right right and right. Now it's it's Grenell they're both morons definitely And I think one of the Problem Democrats are having with the steel as a Taliban is not denouncing al-Qaeda. Yeah and there there. Doesn't there's a bunch of concerns with this right it's link there's a lot of nuance to it but Other is that they have folks are saying that they have a history of essentially over promising and under delivering. Or you know saying that. They'll do something getting the benefits of that deal and then not delivering on what they said they were going to. So this is interesting because it's one of those moments where typically I think it's more liberal ideology to get out of wars. Get Out of wars. We've been in for a long time. But then on both sides there are people who think it's really concerning how it's happening and they're not confident that it's actually going to work. I personally don't know enough about the intricacies of being over in Afghanistan. And you know what we've done exactly to say. I think how I feel about this. I'm torn I guess. On one hand I agree that I think we need to get out of endless wars general. I also acknowledged that when you engage in endless wars you set up situations that then become very dangerous to exits. So I don't know yeah I don't know if it's a victory for trump either necessarily because is getting so much pushback and I wonder if you're getting variables right. Yeah and if you're getting so much pushback than what you really gain from this. Which is I think what we all should be looking at mostly. Yeah and and Ted Lieu even like this deal stupid because they don't denounce al Qaeda and Cetera however I a he said I commend Donald Trump for wanting to end this war. Yeah so and of course pences like well. We put together deal. We'll monitor it closely and we'll see what happens. Yeah exactly so. There's that parliament. Sorry go ahead. No no go ahead. I think part of it too could be a PR thing to show that. He's the candidate. In comparison someone like a Biden. Who voted for the Iraq War Just for putting it out there. Yeah I almost forgot about Ukraine gate there for a second back in like looking strong like all right looking back in investigating Biden three. I mean just putting that out there So yeah possibility. Yeah but we'll definitely be monitoring that to see if the terms of the deal are maintained and fulfilled and we'll see so Finally a federal appeals court ruled against trump into really big immigration cases. A federal appeals court on Friday ruled against program that forces migrants that are seeking asylum to wait in Mexico and they also voted against a rule that it severely limited number of migrants who are eligible for him. So that's good news however Then the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals paused its ruling after. Doj Lawyers said that it would imperil communities at the border As twenty twenty-five thousand asylum seekers were who were encouraged to stay in Mexico that would effectively be allowed to cross the border. So they're saying this is going to be dangerous for the communities and that's why it shouldn't happen been in that was granted until The IT works its way through the courts so kind of a win but then kind of step back there. Sixty thousand migrants have been placed under remain in Mexico by the way Since it began more than a year ago at Tijuana border in Tijuana and San Diego and to me. It's just with that policy specifically. It's it's it's confusing to me that that's allowed to exist because I think about when I think about migration. Let's say you're like going to an island like if if if our nation if we're sovereign nation state you can essentially imagine S.'s. Like an island. If someone comes to that island to to move there what are you gonNa make them like? Wait IN THE OCEAN. No like there at the place you know. They had the place. They're trying to go. That is where they stay while they're going through that process in a lot of these migrants. They're they're not just for Mexico right. They're coming up from like various countries. Three Mexican exactly exactly. That's a joke from yes. It is sorry. That's why we laughed at that was was something trump's at one time. Yes we continue alias. Shamelessly MALCOLM FOR IT. Yes we do yeah logically. I guess the idea of making folks remain in a country. A lot of are not from and all of them are not trying to be in any more just doesn't make sense empirically got it. Thank you for that reporting Jordan. Yes thank you and There was a decision handed down. I'll cover this briefly because we went over it in depth in the muller she wrote episode and I would I would steer you that episode from for more information on this but If you'll remember last summer the House Judiciary Subpoenaed Don mcgann White House counsel to President Trump. Who was there? When trump tried to fire Mueller So that they could interview him in the impeachment inquiry But this is under The obstruction of justice charges. They were looking into from the Mueller investigation. This is before the Ukraine impeachment stuff even started so they they Subpoenaed him and of course. The trump Camp was like take it to court. You know take it to court. We're not. We have blanket immunity and and so they did right. They took the they said all right. We'll go to court. It is now. What are your thoughts nine? Eight months later and the appeals court has made a decision to one to dismiss the case saying that the the the courts have no jurisdiction to decide these interbranch information disputes. Which is contrary to everything that we've ever heard in our lives although interestingly and we talked to Gwen Kirschner about this in the more she wrote up assode Two of the judges two of the three judges said that there's no such thing as blanket immunity. So at least there's that they you know. So if they had to hear it on the merits they would have been like. Yeah of course you have to follow the subpoena. There's no such thing as blanket immunity. But they won't even hear it. They say it's not even under addiction So likely what will happen now is that they will file To the House judiciary will file to have the case heard en banc which means in front of all eleven judges at the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. That will likely go the way of the house. There are only four. I think Republican Appointed judges on that court And then of course it will be appealed to the Supreme Court So that is what's going on in mcgann case. Did you have another bit that you wanted to go? Thank you for that update Yup and again we. We go way in depth on that with all the INS and outs what what Congress should do in could do next and might do and So it's an interesting story but I was actually like gobsmacked by the ruling. I thought it was ridiculous. Personally The judges by the way One was a Bush one was a GW Bush and one was a Clinton appointee at as Glenn Kirschner points out in the interview and the other show. We never used to talk about. Who appointed judges until trump showed up So that's the only reason I'm pointing it out in in this in this particular case because so many decisions mind-numbingly awful one hundred percent our country discs and corona virus update Trump said in his rally this weekend that Corona Virus Democratic hoax trump junior Said that the Democrats want millions to die from corona virus And then trump had a press conference. This is not the one where he named pence the czar but this is the one where he said everyone become. Don't panic he. He did acknowledge the first. Us death in Washington state. Got The gender wrong of the person who died On CNN this morning pence refused to denounce trump. Junior's assertion that Democrats want the corona virus to kill millions and he even called what trump junior said understandable from denver. Gano New York is now making. Its own corona virus tests after the CD's tests have repeatedly failed. The article opens saying Hong Kong is testing over a thousand people a day while the US at the time of this article on Friday has tested a total of four hundred forty five people partially because the CDC's tests don't work so this is from buzzfeed. Federal health officials met with state and city and public health labs on Wednesday to fix a crippling lack of lack of options to diagnose the no the novel Corona virus a shortfall driven by botch CDC testing kits as a result New York state in New York City or moving forward with developing their own tests to detect the virus. Can we not coordinate with China? The I don't know who knows The the were the World Health Organization would probably do that The lack of adequate testing capabilities says buzzfeed was spotlighted on Wednesday evening when the CDC announced delayed results from the first potential case of person contracting covert nineteen from community spread. That was our case here in California. I mean they got sick without travelling to China being exposed to someone known to have the infection according to propublica the CD sent tests to over one hundred cities each with enough to run a few hundred tests but most proved unreliable and left only about a dozen labs with verifiable results. Apparently unreliable tests played a role in the diagnosis of the first woman. To contract the virus without having any contact with known carriers again. That was the one in California. Uc Davis said. Her results were delayed. Because neither the county or state lab could run them and her symptoms did not meet the federal diagnostic criteria. So the test took four days to approve. Think about that for a second state and county labs couldn't test and this is the thing that scares me. Her symptoms didn't meet the federal diagnostic criteria. But she had it that means. The federal diagnostic criteria have been wrong and the early stages of the outbreak And Chris Brayden from the. Cdc spoke Thursday at Solano County. News conference saying the diagnostic criteria federal diagnostic criteria had changed between February nineteenth and the twenty third. That's awfully late in the game. He said what can I say There were multiple people involved in this decision over those four days it wasn't necessarily CDC. Yeah I wonder how expensive tests are so. I'm sorry to interrupt you but I want to start because when he said it wasn't a CD and there were multiple people involved that were putting out the diagnostic criteria the federal diagnostic criteria. That says to me. The trump administration was trying to game the diagnostic criteria to fraudulently suppressed. The number of cases. Those are beans but I mean come on and then what do you know right after the press conference trump decided that members of the CDC were no longer allowed to make public statements and all communications must go through pence's offices so that timing is very suspect Jesus come out and say well the symptoms. She had weren't rising to the level. That trump has decided meets the corona virus level or trump's administration has decided. So that's why we got. We got our first diagnosed case here in California from community. Spread late Something that's really worrying to me about living. In a country that doesn't have universal. Healthcare is the lack of preventative measures. Taken by the government because that would cut the money right. Yeah that's that's where my room is going when I was asking how much in tests are. Yeah Yeah I mean. Other countries are just like handing them out in the street to people. And it's also like can you not Accept Korea? There's literally hanging out on street corners citizens the testing. Can I have no idea how much that stuff costs? Or how much did like burden? The system but I do wonder if you can't even do something that's like.
