Paul Mango Describes Jared Kushner's Inspirational Attitude
"You mentioned Jared the president's son in law. He got several sub chapters dealing with his role in the task force. The morning meetings. A lot of conspiracy theories about Jared I've said on this show, I was an observer of the trade council for the president. I just saw a young man who wanted his father in law to succeed and who worked very, very hard. What's your take on Jared after what you witnessed with the coronavirus task force? Yeah, well, I would add to what you said, Sebastian. I think he's a very incisive businessperson with a very incisive mind. He would cut straight to the most important issue in any meeting. And you know what he brought to the table, which was very inspiring to all of us, was nothing is impossible attitude. All throughout COVID, nothing is impossible without standing up, diagnostic testing sites or Therapeutics or as we said vaccines, nothing was impossible for Jared and his team.

"P n dot com slash Go Check them out right now. Vice President Pence. Just a pretty specific question here did Did the administration ever reach out to you or President Trump and ask about doing some sort of bipartisan ad campaign about pushing the vaccine? Because it seems to me if you actually wanna get people vaccinated. Then you actually should talk to the people on the right and this administration has steadfastly refused to do so, which really suggests they're not as much interested in getting people vaccinated as they are in playing politics. With the with the vaccinations. When you want to convince people you don't treat them like Children, you actually try and make an appeal to them. You actually try and convince them that it's in their best interest. It seems to me that an obvious move here would have been to try and cut some sort of bipartisan ad campaign with you and Kamala Harris and with President Trump and president and President Biden saying, You know, we disagree on a lot of things, but we all agree. The vaccines are a godsend. You should go get one. Well, yeah, it never happened. And and look, it's But I go back to the spent the whole of 2020 undermining public confidence in the vaccine made they made caramel Harrison Joe Biden again and again, said any vaccine coming under President Donald Trump. That they you know, they would hesitate to take it that undermine that We could But we do we developed to safe and effective vaccines and that we're sitting here today in 75% of the American people. Have received one vaccine shot already. I mean, it's when we sat down the week after I became chairman of the White House Coronavirus Task force. We brought in all of the major research companies in the Cabinet room president sitting there. I'm sitting there we said to them. Or how soon can we get medicines as civil therapeutics we can get. We can move pretty quickly on maybe by the summer or the fall. We said. What about vaccines? They said that stain stick 4 to 7 years. If you can develop And right then and there, the president our entire team said. How do we accelerate that without compromising safety at all? That's where Operation Warp speed was born. It was an innovative approach. That essentially said Look, once you have an efficacy signal. That's a fancy shmancy term. For once you once you've got a vaccine that looks like it's going to work. Early in the clinical trials. We'll just pay you to make it while you keep testing it. And then if, at the end, it doesn't work. We'll just pay for it. Anyway. That was Operation warp speed. And so we we were literally the day we left office. We were vaccinating a million Americans that day, Okay? And yet this administration came in if you may not remember this, but I think I almost fell off my chair. When I think it was about a week into the new administration, President Biden said something to the effect of We didn't have a vaccine when I took off. Which was is a strange statement, given the fact that there was a picture of him taking the vaccine a week and a half before vaccinated, just live. He had been vaccinated, but he's he literally said, But you know that's another topic, right? But The reality is that you're 100% right that, uh And I tried to set this tone from the very first Coronavirus Task Force briefing that we're all in this together. This administration could have come in. And set a tone on on encouraging and Everyone's individual decision without mandates, encouraging people to take advantage of this. Medical miracle. The vaccine available to operation warp speed, uh, but doing it on a bipartisan basis, but also also moving legislation covid legislation on a bipartisan basis. They didn't do that. That was a partisan vote. For the first time out of the gate and this administration and everything they have done every day since.

I don't work for the government anymore, and I'm kind of curious about this whole like Buy a weapon thing. It's kind of a paraphrase of what he said. But Check this out. It is not outrageous to hypothesize. You say that the virus could have been part of an offensive bioweapons program and leaked out accidentally. Well, that seems to be discounted by Dr Collins and other people. I think the most likely explanation is that it was gain of function. Mutation work, it leaked out. But unlike the United States, the United States does not have an offensive biological weapons program. There are multiple open sources of Intel that suggests that China has an extensive biological weapons program. And that is integrated between state laboratories, academia and private industry. So it is not crazy as people, um suggest, like Dr Collins suggested that this could have been part of a bio program. Oh, okay, guys, ladies. This guy Admiral Dirar was in the room.

Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
