"Defense Department, so there's a lot of them. That leave and, uh, the bracero program, which was that was what it was called was an attempt was an agreement between the US and Mexico in which large numbers of Mexican Workers would come over. They would work. They were guaranteed a certain weight, which they never got. They were guaranteed housing, which was terrible. They were guaranteed health. Uh, Services, which were never given, Uh and in some ways what that does, it is causes a real split within the Mexican Mexican American community because Mexican our farm works are now pushed up. To the north. They cannot compete so that if O with the cheap bracero labor that's coming straight in from Mexico and which causes it really interesting political dilemma because before the 19 sixties. Many of the leaders. Well, we consider the leaders of the next American community were against this kind of program, and they sometimes they would become, um Um, rather disturbed they would become annoyed and and, in fact become very anti Mexican anti undocumented because these are Mexican Americans who were against Mexicans coming into the United States to work either documented or otherwise, and even says of Chavez initially now the union and everything has changed dramatically, but he used to Take a farm workers the members of his union and line them up in in the, uh, and the bridges from Mexico, You know, crossover to train it stop undocumented folks from coming through and they fought because they didn't want the competition for the field. That's right, because what happened is that once these people would come in initially with the program That was not supposed to be a problem. But what happens is a lot of, uh, agriculture of businesses do not follow the rules or What happens is that More smaller, independent farmers began to offer them money and began to offer these braceros that instead of going home when they were supposed to, why not stay and work for me just under the under the table and we'll just keep you here and that sort of help collapse the program. The set of program eventually and forced the unions. Eventually, there's that Chavez and his union were forced to begin to organize Mexican workers who were coming over because they realized they couldn't fight. They couldn't keep him out. They couldn't give them out. So they thought, Okay, well, let's start working with them and organizing them. And so then the undocumented worker population becomes Critical to the unionizing efforts among Mexican Americans. By the 19 eighties and nineties, the nation's largest unions were starting to see immigrant workers as crucial to their success, and they saw undocumented immigrant workers as an untapped resource for their movement. So in the year 2000 the F L C. I O endorsed amnesty for undocumented immigrants living in the U. S. And the union began wielding its political clout in support of comprehensive immigration reform, says Professor Gleason. Certainly, they were playing a big role in terms of the internal compromises through the two thousands that we saw through kind of the gridlock of Congress not being able to come to a congressional agreement. What is often referred to as comprehensive immigration reform and in the absence of that a number Of different unions finally did come around to the demands largely of youth movement organizers who said We're not going to get Congress to act on this, and we need your leadership and your support to help pressure the president to use is Executive action powers to move something forward. And so that's where we got the different action for childhood arrivals program. What you refer to his DACA. Marie attempted to get a bigger program that would have encompassed individuals who are the parents of green card holders and citizens. And so once Taco was in place in the summer of 2012 unions, many of them though not all of them did step into place on two main friends. One was to help individuals process their applications. And they did this through a number of different ways, either through a lot of resource and referral or dissemination of information to help connect people with Reese. Sources. But also in some cases as we saw in San Francisco, there was an attempt to partner with In that case, municipal entities that were pouring money into immigration services and would provide actual What we might think of his case management. So it was both getting the information out and also, um, connecting folks with legal services to help process their applications since the DACA targets young undocumented immigrants who are looking to go to college or start their careers with temporary protection from deportation. Gleason notes. It's not a program that directly benefits labor unions. But the undocumented parents of DACA recipients are likely to be working in the industries where unions are actively organizing. Supporting Dhaka is a way of showing solidarity with those parents. But unions still face steep barriers and convincing those undocumented workers to start organizing, says Gleeson. What happened is that Case made its way all the way up to the Supreme Court, and in 2000 and two it was decided. Chief went. Frank Quist was at the helm at the time that undocumented workers did indeed continue to have rights under the National Labor Relations Act to organize, But they didn't have the same remedies if they were to be fired. And that creates a massive loophole You can imagine for, um, unions who are engaged in organizing with undocumented workers, and so that you know, we've seen this In many cases, where, um, For example, here on Long Island there was a cookie company has been all over the news teeth, which alleged be engaged in explicit retaliation against workers written, threatening call immigration authorities. If they continue to organize for a union. So we certainly have that where there are threats directly and during the Trump administration, I think that that was a very valid threat that could have been acted upon. But I think that Even now, in the Biden administration, there's all sorts of ways that people can get caught up in the deportation pipeline, whether or not they are actively organizing or not. And so the kind of lay low mentality, I think, is something that both unauthorized workers and low wage workers. You simply don't want to lose their job and have very little protections against losing their job. Um That they want to engage in. And so we also see this in certain industries where it's really up to the employer who they want to hire folks wanting to avoid getting blacklisted being seen as rabble rousers. And so that is, I think what the unions Go back to original question. You know what is part of their calculus is both the demand on the part of members. But it's also as a labor movement to survive the current reality in which we live in both economic and political. They have to be able to engage in this organizing work for all workers and to be assured that the rights of the undocumented Some will be respected, just as in the other low wage worker, and that's a precarious um, hope. I think at this stage that's Shannon Gleason, a professor of labor relations law and history at Cornell University. We also heard from Ignacio Garcia, a professor of Western and Latino history at Brigham Young University. And that's it for this special episode of the show marking Labor Day.

Number of Americans in Afghanistan to Be Rescued Unclear

"What's the minimum number about which we are certain that are there and have not been able to get out is at one hundred is at five hundred. Is it five thousand. Do they have any minimum number. No no number at all. At least from what i saw. They resisted providing specific number which is incredible now. Their argument is okay. When people come into afghanistan they're encouraged to register with the embassy. Some do some don't and then some don't d- register when they leave the country. I understand but we should at least have some range of an estimate about how many we have contact with you right exactly. How many have contacted you. Because you gotta let now. My question is if people forgotten danny pearl. Have they forgotten the woman journalist in syria. They forgotten the beirut's cia station cheap. These are fanatics. it's not like we're giving the pirates. They're they're the absolute worst people in the world and we're abandoning americans to it. It's mind boggling. And by the way. The taliban has american hostages right now to me. I don't understand. I don't understand why if we're gonna make this humiliating surrender agreement. Why didn't even include getting some hostages back that we know they have the final thing. I mean. the other thing i'd say is if the white house continues to make this argument that will don't worry about the collapse of position afghanistan leaving behind american citizens the fact that we don't have the ability to over the horizon counter-terrorism there it's all about china and the pacific our past actions and our reputation in a in a different theater doesn't matter in terms of our ability to deter china. Okay well if you accept that argument then everything. Hinges on the balance of power in the indo pacific vis-a-vis china and that balance of power is getting worse in large part because the biden defense department is making it worse and it's budget is abysmal. And yesterday we voted on a five trillion dollar bill that takes us to the lowest level of defense. Spending is a function of gdp in eighty years. So their priorities which are all out of whack. Which hinge entirely on passing a bernie sanders progressive budget while decimating defense that is weakening our position vis-a-vis china

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1

"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin Is Lying About Our Military Capabilities in Afghanistan

"Right now with coronavirus are are interrelated. They may seem completely distinct, but some of the problems behind them are the same. It's that we are being led by stupid people. And I played the video of our defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in Austin, saying yesterday that we don't have the capability to pull our people out of Kabul that we're just there to secure the airport. Ladies and gentlemen, that is a lie. That is total bull and you get the rest of it. That's not true. Now, Lloyd Austin is not a stupid man. So if you have to, I like to make things simple folks. I'm not here to confuse anyone or try to pretend to be a Nobel Prize winner in pseudo psychology. Whatever it is, there's only two solutions here, right? Either. Lloyd Austin is an idiot and doesn't know what the Defense Department capabilities are or he's not an idiot and he's lying to you. I'm telling you, the option is true. He is not an idiot. He knows full well that the Defense Department and our military not only can but want to go into Kabul and get our people and take them out like the U.

"In terms of case numbers and deaths the us military has done relatively well fighting cova but the delta variant is out there now in the military wants to prevent a surge in its ranks. Defense secretary lloyd austin says by mid-september he plans to ask president biden for permission to make service members. Get the vaccine. Npr national security correspondent. Greg murray has been following this one. Good morning greg. Good morning oil. We've had safe effective vaccine since last winter. Some part of me is a little surprised. This hasn't been ordered already. Well you know the military can give its troops. A lot of orders can make the march can make them do push but it can't force them to take a vaccine that isn't approved by the food and drug administration. The fda hasn't approved any of the co- vaccine so far that could come soon right but right now they only have emergency authorization so to make it. Mandatory president biden would have to issue a waiver on national security grounds and defense secretary austin said and his memo yesterday that that's exactly what he's going to do ask the president if it's just a matter of signing presidential waiver why have president biden in the pentagon waiting until now. Yeah it seems. Several factors are at play here. The military has emphasized. It wants the troops to buy in and see the value of this vaccine. Do it voluntarily. There's also been some thinking that. Fda approval was just around the corner and that would have took away the need to to get a presidential waiver but it appears the rapid spread of the delta. Varian is is driving this thinking in the military. That can't afford to wait any longer. And be surprised by a new surge and we should note the military vaccination rate tracks pretty closely with the civilian rate in both cases those about full vaccination of a little over sixty percent. And that's just not good enough according to the military. Here's how the pentagon spokesman. John kirby described austin's mimmo yesterday what he's asking in this message to the force. Today's don't wait they're safe. they're effective. They worked they make us more ready for some more lethal force. And there's no reason to wait for the mandate and if the mandate comes and a soldier or troop doesn't want to take the vaccine. There presumably will be some sort of penalty. But kirby didn't say what it would be He just said the military has unique risk. And it's virtually impossible to train her. Deploy without being in close quarters. Yes close quarters are real thing and yet you've reported that the military has done relatively well keeping cova controlled. How did they pull that off. Well you may recall right early on Back in march of twenty twenty there was a big scare on the theodore. Roosevelt aircraft carrier had more than a thousand cases. So this really gave the military jolt. They quickly set up protocols Despite this vaccination rate that still isn't where they want it to be. There's been fewer than thirty deaths among the one point. Three million active duty members in the forest. They've really seemed to have benefited from having a young healthy for so most people contracting the illness have recovered so president biden says federal workers will have to get vaccinated now. Almost certainly the military. Do you think we're looking at a bunch of new federal mandates. Well it it certainly seems like it's a possibility i think on the federal side. You have a pretty high likelihood of of compliance. If a military mandate comes down there could be some opposition but Troops will really have a choice. And i think it'll be more interesting outside the military as well as we're seeing the pushback already in schools and other civilian institutions but more mandates do seem to be in the works okay.

There's been several changes of the Pentagon after the departure of Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and there was a lot of people wondering Well, who and what is going to be next? On. But there's conservatives imprudent of some of the people that have been installed. I'll definitely perceive to be a pro. Boyle is not some that love President Trump that may not be a concern. But one of them particular Anthony J. Tada, He's performing the duties of under secretary of defense for policy. He had somebody who was actually had the nomination. Be in this job, but that was the railroad. Listen to Lucy, he says. Out of what is the legacy called former President Obama terrorist leader There's assistant deleted. He's apologized, but It is unclear. Okay, what kind of an effect will have? There's also a couple of people who have been in Congressman Devin Nunez is orbit as their Cohen Watnick. Being one of them. Acting undersecretary depends for television. The security He's won another cast. Yep, tell Chief of staff for the Defense Department. People are concerned about that a swell because he's the one You wrote some kind of member 2018. It was really accusing federal federal federal officials of bias against President Trump We're looking at folks. It's unclear why there's all these changes before theory is that the president may be trying to bring home truth from Middle East, fulfilling one of his big campaign promises. Another one that is a bit more shadowy is the idea that President Trump may be trying to was least classified information over the objections of those At the Pentagon concerning the 2016 election, which put CIA director Gina has full potentially in the president's cross there. Well, Rachel, this could certainly all change with the possibility of a new administration, right? Absolutely. Some traditions are easy to change. Three. Outright firing live Eleanor bit more difficult, but certainly reassignments are totally expected. Even look at there's been a change at the National Security Agency. One of the big intelligence agencies, Michael Ellis, is now general counsel of the N S. A. Removing or changing his position or being outright fired could be tough, but he's going to give it another job within the Defense Department. Again. The questions are you know why all these shake ups? We've heard that FBI Director Christopher Wray is on thin ice as well. And so have doing positions of Central transition. Things are already some part of me and then the ideas. Okay, let's I'll take it even bumpy, right? Yeah. Yeah, let me at this point. That's where it stands right now. We're keeping an eye on any other changes that could come down. Well, we appreciate that. Rachel Sutherland Fox News. Have a great day. Thanks for your time. All right, 6 41 radio 6 10 telling you TV and sports. Well, that McCoy the hits just keep coming. Yeah, it's 2020. I mean, what do you want to say? You know, kind of the way it is. We already had a shortened season and now it's even shorter is about guys can't play. Hey, look, just you know, it's happening all over. Let's knock on wood and hope that these guys can avoid Another break here and hope that Indiana and Michigan State and young lawyer in Michigan who are the remaining games that they can stay clean, and they can get this season and at this point, I mean, you look around the country. I believe it's 11 games now this weekend that are off. Yes, four in the SEC alone. Wow. So it's happening everywhere right now, and we know what's happening. It's spiking here. The governor talking yesterday and states all around. So, um, let's just hope that they You know, this is the one week speed bump and we can get through it and and get the season And, well, Matt and speaking of speed bumps, you've laid it out so elegantly before And if you could do that again, because there could be some Big time replications for Ohio State. If this happens again, even if it's not their fault. Sure, yeah, I mean, we all believe that I see it as a team that is certainly worthy of making the playoffs if they can continue to win, But the Big 10 directive when they started this Shortened Covitz season about a month ago was that you have to play at least six games in order to be eligible for the Big 10 championship game. Um six games going into? It s O right now. Ohio State is going to be down a game. It's ah, it would be an eight game schedule. So now they're down to seven. So, So, Maryland's the new enemy? Yeah. You know, I don't know how it infiltrated their program. I don't want to blame anybody because it's going around so quickly. Uh, And, you know, I think we're naive to think that it couldn't happen here. True. I know they're taking all kinds of precautions. So I mean, they're doing Justin Fields talk yesterday about the fact that he is going nowhere but his apartment and The Woody Hayes facility. That's his his personal little bubble. He did say that there are a couple times that he's had to go out to Kroger. But he's being very careful. So I know these guys are taking precautions, but you get it. But yes, in terms of the repercussions, Let's say that, you know, two weeks down the road. Michigan State has an outbreak and they can't play that game. Well, now you're down to six games and you There's no room for error. You know, Illinois and Michigan in the last two games if they would have an outbreak, even if Ohio State Stays clean right, But the teams that they're playing can't play. Ohio State will not get the six games necessary to be able to play in the Big 10 title game on. I would think that that would have ramifications for making the Um, college football playoff. I don't I don't know that the committee would take a Heo high stakes Really good. They're five and old. I don't know that five games or you know what I'm saying would be enough for Even six games. So let's just hope that this is a speed bump, and they can get through it and be back on playing Indiana. Yes, we're going to do a Buckeye prayer. That's right, exactly. And by the way, if people are wondering, we do have bucks line tonight, even though there's no game so tune in 68 will, you know, do all kinds of fun stuff. There's Buckeye Updated service. Anthony Thomas CHOCOLATE Buckeyes. Ohio State can get an early jump on prepared for Indiana because I'm not gonna play Maryland. Now. Colbert outbreak with the Terrapins forced them to cancel the game. It is the first time a game that has been on the schedule. The week of the game has been canceled since the 9 11 terrorist attack back in 2000 won. That game was eventually made up. This one is gonna be canceled, though, and it's the first game that's been canceled. Since the Spanish flu outbreak in 1918 virus hitting the country hard right now, Three of the nation's top five teams can't play due to the outbreaks.

department knew several Kirklees on trying to put something together as a bio weapons yeah I mean that the bugs in gas people have been around for a long time you look at the latest and working I'm not sure the experts would disagree with here so I've got a few contacts left here in major cities or what they're seeing we're not hearing from all the news elders because they're weak the old already had problems with a lot of not how underlying health problems by age groups downside say like around upper fifties yeah and I have had those kind of problems the younger ones are dying it's not like I haven't like property other collectors the kid that was just what that thirty years on the other day died and had no history of medical problems right now a bio weapons I hope your kind thought if you go back roughly they're pretty much during the Vietnam War so you didn't see a lot of emails in combat trying to take out your war here's your soldiers look at the numbers if anybody will give you her number then we'll see that by far is the only one males and females well they don't know why though which is interesting and and I think you're I am that way this yeah I think you keep saying that guy I don't think I don't think well I mean I'm kind of a guy of science so if we okay boring on the second floor you want I know that you're feeling I don't think there's any proof of that whatsoever and part of that is the bugs and gas guys I've talked to over the years say the whole point of developing a bio weapon is that you pointed that the enemy and your immune but you do not release a bio weapon that also comes back in and it blows back on you and it bites you in your own but you don't do that that's not the point of a bio weapon so you know it you have to tell me who developed it and why they developed and all the so many other factors what really comes down to is we don't need that to explain what's happening because these types of novel viruses happen all the time and I say all the time in history meaning pretty regularly in history but I mean I if again if somebody comes up with some evidence some proof I I'll be fascinated but it doesn't have to be that to explain what we have and in fact the evidence of the facts that are in evidence already suggests that this would be this is not how that's done because you're gonna end up if if the Chinese did it they were killing themselves it's a crapshoot or whether it gets over here or it gets over to Italy or whatever and I just don't think that that's what that was for but I know that some people are heavily invested in that theory so I hope they feel like they've heard that side aired first time caller line Gary is in Cleveland on coast to coast Kerry hello yeah first callers have been listening so for twenty five years first time I've ever called in and I have heard the lights to listen to your honor under Reagan usually sleeping at this time that's a good thing yeah I think god has woken me up because right the court may call you tell you about a article is publishing the beacon journal yesterday and it talked about the use of scent detection dogs to detect the corona virus in people yeah absolutely yeah last meeting our article in eight states some other research that had been in two thousand sixteen by and I H. along in conjunction with Auburn University school of veterinary medicine where they found dead dogs for ninety nine point nine percent accurate in detecting viruses while wow yeah you have to look at that and that's that's amazing kids that would seemingly be a lot easier to take otherwise already trained canines for example and if they're already knowing how to find a scent and somehow this is just a different version of that where some but they're picking up something from somebody's ceremonies are they're picking it up from somebody's you know perspiration or however it is that the animal would detect that that that's gonna be a lot cheaper than waiting for a bunch of you know boxes of tests to arrive in the mail I think that's really cool once the game changer if V. isn't true that's all to be would wise up and recognized with potentiality pull on unfortunately you know you have western medicine he says the only thing we can do is take a stethoscope and determine you know if we if we do have a problem if you do take an aspirin and go home and go to bed and yeah I don't know that that's a fair description of western medicine on this one I don't I don't know that that's all that because I I just had a friend survived it and they didn't do that at all yeah it was hardly I was just being a little facetious I get what I just yeah okay well I like the dog let's stay with that and and hope somebody else picks up on that so that's the idea is that you know you're driving to the location and then all the paperwork is taking care of everything is bar coded and you're here you don't have to swap an individual enough does because the the nose throat and ear system is all one system all you need to live in for a from the mouth the tongue right can you put it back into the test to now let's put it into a bunch of Janet you have canisters let's see if twelve canisters that are sitting out there and thirty eight what Manuel at one then you put the actual have you both have to bed and then you you walk the dog pass these canisters no I totally get it yeah yeah that's good the greatest haven't even in crowds you can just do it we just got a crowd of people and have dogs walk through it if they pick somebody out of the crowd that may be it may be a great way and if you are you people going into a stadium or something like drug sniffing dogs down here that that would be that would be harder fight for example like an airport situation where they're walking down a walk where you can have a fan that could be coming back towards the dog and you could just get the dog ready to go after anybody these kids carrying the virus well I like that idea that letting them get on planes did I get somebody coming up here at the top of the hour let me get any in from Allah no I got Danny first from Saint Louis and then anyone I've got time thank you Gerry Danny yes thanks go ahead I've been studying natural medicine fifty one years and I got some insight on the lot of the things people are talking about I think this out allopathic medical students should be taught preventive medicine they're not at all in a simple solution is to extend natural Pathak medicine because all the medicines are used for prevention as well as treatment sure in that incredible yeah that's great I think we have to do much more preventative work yep right now here's one more thing I've been studying pharmacognosy which is a science and staying in a the drugs are chemicals in plants and other natural medicines you know how to use them for rejuvenation healing human body and I think all of us need to question that I got online twenty years ago I've been studying for twenty years studying all the names and all the foods and herbs and mushrooms and bacteria and algae and all that stuff and how he was human diseases I like that idea I do a few guys my college dorms that we're studying herbs and mushrooms but I don't think they were taking it that seriously but I do like that idea I think anything better than taking a pill if we can avoid it wildcard line Anne is in Alabama on coast to coast AM any thank you for taking my call I've noticed a lot of genius is called the show please genius solutions yeah always involve algorithms in you know that means they have to go through all the steps of the algorithm in the correct order and they all have to be presented at the same time you can't sell the show was one step on each call because they won't get the big picture and I've noticed that a lot of times on the various talk shows people get cut off and they never get to go through the algorithm not ninety percent of time why is that even well I think the colors you know we we have to be cognizant of the fact that like you for example Europe study call right you're if not every night we were close to it most people who listen to talk radio I don't want that I think that they that they they they the colors are there the spice they're not the chefs and so I think sometimes callers don't get to their most important stuff up front and they don't realize that there's a there's a just a certain amount of time that each caller can get and so sometimes by the time they're getting to the things they really want to say it's two or three minutes late and there's other people we got to get to so I I hope that isn't the case that you're talking about but I may be of more people cut to the chase right away at the beginning they have more time for algorithms on the air.

"S. defense department is ending a program that tried to use academic research to solve complex issues in war zones NPR's Geoff Brumfiel reports on that program's demise it was called the Minerva research initiative and it began in two thousand eight at a time when the U. S. was trying to bring the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan under control the idea was to call on anthropologists and other social scientists to help make those missions more successful counterinsurgency theory requires that you have some knowledge of the culture that you're trying to occupy or control in some way David price is a professor of anthropology at St Martin's university of Washington state he studies the history of social sciences involvement with the defense establishment you know it's been a mixed relationship of anthropologists and other social scientists working for the military project Minerva was designed to bring academic brainpower to military problems grants will be issued to university researchers said that they could study topics like Islamic extremism or terrorist networks price says its military roots made a controversial among anthropologists and he thinks Minerva never really did deliver on the promise of using social science to fundamentally reshape the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the notion that you can get an occupied population to somehow welcome this occupation or see it in their best interest that's a lot of weight to put on culture wind very logically people know that they're being occupied over the years Minerva shifted its focus more recent grant studied Russian disinformation campaigns and how to strengthen western military alliances until this year that's when the military announced it was ending the program in a written statement the Pentagon says Minerva was eliminated to quote a line more directly with the department's modernisation priorities robot time less money for humans more money for robots is what I read out of that under the trump administration the Pentagon has shifted its research efforts towards things like hypersonic missiles advanced weapons it believes can help to counter Russia and China but Joshua Pollack a scholar at the Middlebury institute of International Studies says the end of Minerva is about more than just shifting money into advanced technology he says the Pentagon appears less interested than ever in hearing from outside academics it's not just a case of of social sciences scientific advice generally last year the Pentagon tried to disband the group of the researchers known as the J. since they had given the defense department independent sometimes critical evaluations of tough technical problems for years in the case of Minerva the program is only around fifteen million dollars each year that so for change for the Pentagon the idea is that you do you would need to eliminate a small program because you need to buy some modest fraction of a of a new missile is short sighted to me think you it is as the saying goes Pennywise and pound foolish Pollock worries that by favoring new hardware over academic advice the Pentagon risks stumbling blindly into a new arms race Geoff Brumfiel NPR news Washington our coverage of the world continues this afternoon and all things considered protests in Lebanon oppose government corruption and.

"Damn what's going on? Gordon? Yes. What's going on here moved across the country to take your plastic driver's license and make it a digital license that would sit on your smartphone. It's an interesting idea. People say this would make people's lives easier. And it's this movement to everything digital everything. Being folks privacy advocates have said, you know, there are a lot of problems with that. Because does that mean that police if they're looking at your license could potentially just look into everything inside your phone? So that's kind of a quick and dirty big picture who wants to do this. Well, there's a there are states across the country. There are about fifteen that are doing pilot programs right now, there's a Louisiana actually has an app to do this. There's a company in Washington a couple companies because it some French from called Genia, which is a pioneering firm in terms of fingerprinting iris scans and facial recognition scanning and they're one of the forces behind this move towards digital license. Okay. And what would they want it for? Well, they seem it's I I did some pretty deep dive reporting on this year because I- idea has got has seen a lot of data biometric data and biometric data is better. That's collected one year. Scandic you go in and out of the country. If you go through an airport, traveling overseas biometric, Ed actually, also collected in most states when you sit down and have your driver's license. I d taken that biometric data is collected. I feed some of this metric data. The department of homeland security to the FBI to the defense department and Georgetown University. They've got a privacy Law Center said about most Americans now have their biometric data in some sort of US database. So it's this firm that does it, but it's also very much the United States government since nine eleven has really tried to create massive databases of identifying who we all are. Meaning that most of us could get picked up by some sort of facial recognition software. That's exactly what it means. And there are some pilot programs at airports that are pretty wild. If if your listeners wanna go out and check some of this stuff out, I mean missions that Orwellian critics are calling stuff Weli because there are pilot programs in some airports across the country where you and I could be strolling down. I could be meeting you at the airport to have a drink, and we could be meeting in some terminal in United be walking through a terminal and suddenly they could determine that's Gordon Deal. That's Dan Boylan by just a camera. That's uptake grabbing our faces which is incredible. Then if one of us had. Did warrants out or something? I guess right. Maybe that could trigger something who come get arrested on the spot. I got it. Yeah. Yeah. That's and that's exactly where like some of these privacy privacy rights groups. There's some there was a big operational electron from tier foundation out of San Francisco. They say that the problem there is what if they identify, and it goes, that's Gordon Deal. But actually Gordon Deal face. They think is also some Gordon Johnson in Florida who's just a wacked his mother. And then you get pulled in and people say, oh, my God that was a misidentification. So these somebody's privacy rights groups, digital let's go for saying misidentification as a problem until it's I out this stuff shouldn't be over because it's not very regulated. We're speaking with Dan Boylan, national correspondent at the Washington Times. He's written a piece called Orwellian vision. Critics say digital driver's licenses expose citizens to hackers and abuse. What about for ten? Tourist purposes with this necessarily, keep the country do something like this. I mean, that's the big argument for it. And that's why so many billions of dollars have been invested in the United States since nine eleven in this technology for these firms idea is one of the pioneers here, it's it's a French firm. But it's it's really inside the guts have a lot of this technology in Washington, apple Facebook, and Amazon they're also all over this stuff and facial recognition and part of that is so they can keep the data to department of homeland security who says if there's a bad guy coming in some let's say Yemen or somebody maybe was radicalized in the US. We can track them and follow them and make sure that they do that. Don't do something extraordinarily bad. You know inside the national security operetta smoshing people say this stuff is absolutely critical for that reason was Dan Dan, Boylan national reporter at the Washington Times.
