The Left Always Looks After One Another...
"The left they always look after one another. For Lisa Monaco, venita Gupta Christian Clark Kenneth polite Matthew graves, they've bought into this machine mentality. This idea of building a machine is very difficult for conservatives. We have too much of a flair for liberty and freedom to say, oh, yeah, you know, I'm gonna basically sacrifice my own individual autonomy and my decision making to be part of a mindless Borg machine that tries to remove and eliminate my political opponents. That's a very difficult thing for conservative temperamentally and philosophically to engage and believe in. We don't really like tyranny very much. Why would we want to be part of it?

"Jackie cochran died in nineteen eighty in at that time. According to the national aviation hall of fame he held more speed altitude and distance records than anyone in the world male or female but she never saw an american woman. Make it into space. She also never explained. What made her testify against the loveless program. We figured it might be because she was not going to be allowed in it. I have heard from others that they heard. Jackie had made the statement in later years that she regretted what she had done at the congressional hearings but we felt like she sabotaged just after the hearings. Congress sided with nasa nasa said astronauts had to be military jet test. Pilots in only men could be jet pilots. Well that's just the way things were in that man. There was no need for the levels program. Nasa ultimately decided they were not going to make the access and the funding available to continue the project. And that pretty much. Shut the door and women being able to pursue any hopes of being in the astronaut corps. I was greatly disappointed that we did not go on. I had already quit my job. I kept hoping for the best that the program would be reinstated. I just you know for every door that closes two more will open. So i just went on with my life and another door did open just not for the americans. Unfortunately for the us what happened next is soviet speed us to the punch of anti nanterre cova in nineteen sixty three which was not long after the program had died became the first woman to space. Unlike the women love was tested. Valentina tereshkova hadn't spent thousands of hours in a cockpit the soviets had heard about the lowest program and they wanted to be the first to send a woman into space so they trained her to fly and mater cosmonaut. We were very happy for her. We were sorry that it was not an american woman but we were happy that a woman finally made it into space but nasa hardly noticed the. Us was headed for the moon. Nasa spent all of its money and resources to reach that goal in. There wasn't room for anything else. It was decades before an american woman blasted off into space. So nineteen seventy eight now so recruited its first new set of astronauts since nineteen sixty nine first african americans to be recruited to the program first asian americans to be recruited to the program and notably six women including sally ride who then became the first american woman in space in nineteen ninety-three by then nasa had changed the requirements. The astronauts didn't all have to be military pilots. Sally ride she was a scientist. We were happy for sally. Ride to who went up as a mission specialist. The we were pilots. We wanted to sit up front and we want to sit in the left seat. The pilots it would take another decade for an american woman to sit there in nineteen ninety five. Eileen collins became the first woman to pilot the space shuttle and a few years later she was the first female commander of a shuttle mission. Wally phone sir. Rally both went to her launches when the rockets lifting off i was yelling out into the crowd go go for all of us and so when i lean collins went up we felt that we had been redeemed. What we had done had not been in vain that maybe we put the bug in. Someone's ear that we can crack this glass ceiling in crack it. They did but it still hasn't been shattered. Nasa has sent of men into space but only about fifty women and a woman never walked on the moon not yet anyway today nasa embraces the lowest testing program as part of its history photos of some of the women pilots can be found on the nasa website and nasa has acknowledged that these women pave the way for future astronauts. But that's far from the message. Nasa was sent into women at the time. I like to think you know this. It didn't work out and that's a shame but this was a moment of them being able to say. Hey look. there's somebody who is going to advocate for us. They're women who were going to advocate for each other and there is now scientific proof that were just as capable and i think that's very inspirational and continues to be very inspirational. Even now after nasa. Shut down the loveless program sir. Radley became an accountant that pay the bills so she could keep flying for fun at eighty five years young. Sarah still flies and she still gets questions about the lowest program recently interest. She met some college aged pilots. Several the girls had to me. You were my role model. Thought me a role model. I think it's the idea of being a pioneer of trying to do something different to bring a better life and a bit more hopes two more women. I think that's why they still onto the story because women weren't doing things like that in those days in someone had to lead the way because for sarah radley and the other women.

The two victims, a male and a female were gone. They'd already left for the hospital. Both are expected to survive their wounds. So far, the shooter has not been caught. Seattle Police chief Adrian Diaz is asking for people to lower their guns, says the city and King County see a spike in shootings. I don't see it slowly down hard and honest conversation at Emerald City Bible Fellowship Church. This problem cannot be ignored. SPD chief Adrian Diaz, the pastor and advocates are trying to find ways to curb the gun violence. Rocking the city and county. I need those guns put down were in many ways, killing each other like flies, and that is not the way it was meant to be. We're desperate Right now.

"We also got a little bit of subsequent reporting. I'm sure there is going to be more to come from the from the from Christian Clark of the Times-Picayune that off there is that there there was conflict and a quote, unquote strained relationship between Van Gundy and Brandon Ingram. So that, that is interesting as well. Well, we'll see. And I mean, I'm guessing there will be more to come. That that was a, you know, kind of a different circumstance. And so, the other interesting parallel I brought, this is the second one and done coach of this NBA season, took that in both circumstances here. And in in Indianapolis, it appears that the coach who hired and fired. The first coach will be the one who hires the second coach, and some change in both this. And the Napier, current situation will David Griffin. Kevin Pritchard, go back to the people that they considered last year and maybe give those a second run and say, oh, we, we met Just read this person, they did it. Do they look at new candidates? I mean, this New Orleans job. It's it's a really intriguing challenge because you have Zion Williamson who is a blossoming Superstar off. But the Pelicans roster is pretty locked in and it could be a whole hell of a lot more locked in very soon. You know, depending on what happens with Lonzo ball, and Josh Hart and some other pieces, but they're also isn't the necessarily, the immediate one. Now, pressure compared to a place like Boston. So I don't and, and arguably Portland as well. So I think of New Orleans as a pretty strong job of compared to the ones that are out there but it depends on kind of what you want and what kind of Coach you are. So like this is a fascinating question, right? If your New Orleans at this point is the move to just like tear it down. Like right now and say we have the guy we know we have the guy in Zion Williamson who is going to be a top-five player in the league. We have some real job. Interesting young players on rookie-scale deals like Mikhail, Alexander Walker's cheap for two more years, Kyrie. Louis is cheap for three more years. Jaxson, Hayes is fine, but like, Jackson is, is cheaper two more years if we can we can stretch wave and stretch Eric Bledsoe. We moved Brandon Ingram for whatever, we can get Brandon Ingram 4 and we let Lonzo walk. We have a pretty clear cap sheet at that point and it pretty clear Runway to be able to do things and then move Steven Adams as well. Because I don't think Seventeen for Steven Adams is all that owner is in terms of moving him, to be honest. Like it's a negative value contract, but it's not heinous, you know, like it's it's not in the same ballpark as some of the other, you know, like oh God, we have to get off of this type of things. I do think it's negative value and Adams is getting older, but he has been generally pretty durable super durable before the last couple of years. But I, I agree with you. I think that using Zion Williamson coming up to, right? I mean those pics aren't necessary job. Epremium assets. Like that's the difference between New Orleans and let's say some of the stuff that other teams might be getting maybe the Nets picks eventually. Also some of the Houston pics that went to OKC depending on the protection and everything from there..

After lie after lie, I wanted to go to Richard Blumenthal the Democratic senator from Connecticut to immediately responded to the the Republican Utah, Senator Mike Leigh's accusation of anti-semitism. I think as smart Garland said when he was here. I think guide, no anti-Semitism, when I see it, I think this charged about anti-Semitism that is just very regrettably false, even to raise it. It was unfortunate, there's no basis for it, in the record. In fact, I don't think there's an anti-semitic bone in Miss, Clarks body, judging by her record. So, that's Connecticut, Senator Blumenthal. Who said there's not an anti-semitic bone. Christian Clark's body. We had said, it was Senator Wyden before, but to raise that issue. Talk about what Christian Clark represents Through The Years. What she is not, especially in light of the hundreds of voter suppression bills that are being voted on around the country. She's a civil rights lawyers, civil rights lawyer. She has made a name for herself fighting hate crimes fighting employment discrimination and sexual harrasment and wage. Most notably fighting for the right of every person. This country to participate in free and fair elections. In this moment, we're seeing the greatest rise in a voter suppression legislation since Jim Crow, which is to say something, cuz we said the same thing ten years ago, but this time it's actually worse and her coming into the US Department of Justice at this moment would really strengthen the hand of the department, which was gutted by Trump to fight voter suppression across this country Christians. One of the most even-tempered even-handed. Dedicated people to defending the US Constitution that you'll ever meet. And the way that they have lied about her really, is a new low, is this somebody who has avoided controversy, if you will simply by being absolutely decent every day of her life, she doesn't excite easily. And she, you know, one of the things that hurt me most was seeing them trying a widow of the officer that moved that mumia was convicted of killing to say that Chris and was was anti-white. He was the craziest thing, meanwhile were chasing. They're recording video of white women.

As of yesterday, there are 360,000 deaths. We have had a situation where we now are averaging. Between 203 100,000 new infections today and between two and 3000 deaths Today every day is a new record. For the number of people hospitalized with covert 19 138,000.

On January the ninth and in less than a year in 11 months, we went from a sequence to actually having vaccines in the arms of individuals. Vaccines that are not just any vaccine, but a vaccine. That's 94 to 95% efficacious with a very good safety record. The challenge now and we can get into that, in the questions is to get the vaccine out and implemented in an efficient way so that we can get the overwhelming majority of our population vaccinated. Within a several month period, which will be the real gateway to the end of this terrible outbreak and would get us back to normal.
