Andrew Klavan Describes What It Means to Be a Man
"Does it mean to be a man? We had general boykin on who's written books about it, who gave us this 6 part answer. It's a pastor. It's a leader. It's a battle buddy, very system. Delta force founder you would expect him to do very systematic. What is it to a man who's written amazing heroes in your novels? What is it to be a man? I always think that the main two things are integrity and courage and you really can't have one without the other with courage without integrity means just an amoral virtue. Your evil people can have courage. But with integrity, what I mean by integrity is that you are who you say you are and you'll do what you say you will do. Your word matters. Your word is connected to reality. Your appearance is connected to reality, you're not a fake, your life makes sense. You are responsible to making sense. And the reason I use those words to is because of course, you know, we love these men who go out and fight battles and defend us in the movies manhood is always demonstrated through action guys warriors and people like that. But you know, if you look at, say, a play like David Mamet's glengarry Glenn Ross. The biggest man in that is not the guy who boast is not the guy who talks about manhood. It's the guy who quietly refuses to be corrupt. He does it almost in the background of the play. A beautiful play, and he does it almost in the background. It's the guy who just stands fast and so many people have to do this in ways that we don't celebrate. The father who makes a living, even though it means giving up his dreams, the husband who sticks with a tough marriage because he knows his kids need them. These things happen every day all the time and they are the essence of manhood and they're the thing that you don't make a movie about because it's not exciting and it doesn't have things blowing up. But it matters and these guys like the navy seals are examples of that that we can hold on to and keep in front of us as ideals, but some of those principles can be applied all of those principles can be applied to sometimes the smallest thing that matters tremendously.

Steve Deace: COVID Vaccines Lost Efficacy Since August 2021
"Instead we're in an environment where I was looking at all my various social media accounts and thinking to myself where can I actually post Daniel's work And I just came to the conclusion that maybe the only place I think I can post it is over my true social account at real estate base if people want to get the link to it because I don't think I certainly can't post it on Facebook Elon hasn't taken over Twitter yet so that's a flip of a coin Okay But the reality here is since August 6th of last year And I think that's a date Your audience underlying that date August 6th of last year Rochelle Walensky had CDC goes on with wolf blitzed and admits on national TV on swell It's CNN So is it really national PV But I guess that's similar So our sort of national TV She sort of goes on national TV on CNN and admits that the vaccines now with the arrival of the delta variant and fully in America no longer stop the transmission of the virus So that's like 2.75 variants ago because we're on like the third variant of omicron right now okay And so she admitted this on August 6th of last year it got very little fanfare but on September the 9th of last year A full month after the head of the CDC admitted that we have a vaccine that doesn't actually vaccinate It doesn't actually inoculate It doesn't stop the spread of a virus That's the date that Joe Biden did what he said for the entirety of the year up to that point he had no constitutional authority to do And tried to buy Fiat of an executive order force you you could not work in America unless you got these jabs that don't actually do what they claim And this was a full month after he made this the CDC admitted that it doesn't do what a vaccine is supposed to do Dan And so it's really been since that date August 6th of last year that the entirety of this House of Cards has just begun to slowly but surely collapse We're in the last verse of weezer sweater songs while we're dropping 90s music references here All right
Tucker Carlson: Memphis Is Falling Apart
"A hundred years ago Memphis was one of the richest best organized cities in the country that had a booming economy. It had beautiful municipal parks a lot of them more than a hundred. It had one of the most modern sanitation systems in the world, something we take for granted now, but when yellow fever was real, no one took it for granted. Memphis was such a big deal that, in fact, was the informal capital of an entire American region, the Mississippi Delta. But not anymore. In fact, by the last year, if you went to Memphis, it was hard to believe that any of that had ever been true at any point because by that point and now Memphis had become a husk and a highly threatening one. In 2021, according to federal statistics, Memphis Tennessee was the most dangerous city in the United States. Last year it recorded a total of 342 murders. Now how many is that? Well, by comparison, San Antonio, Texas, which has more than twice the population recorded fewer than half as many murders. So by any measure at all, Memphis was absolutely falling apart.
US suspends Chinese airline flights in COVID-19 dispute
"I'm Mike Gracia reporting the U.S. suspends Chinese airline flights in a COVID-19 dispute A dispute over China's policy on air passengers who test positive for COVID-19 has led the U.S. government to suspend 26 flights by Chinese airlines from the United States to China The U.S. Department of Transportation has suspended 7 air China flights from New York City and 19 flights from Los Angeles for air China and three other Chinese carriers The Department of Transportation says the suspensions are equal to the number of flights United Airlines American Airlines and Delta Air Lines were required to cancel under Beijing's so called circuit breaker system The ruling Communist Party's zero COVID policy has become even more restrictive since August 7th requiring airlines to suspend the flight if 4% of passengers on one flight test positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in China Mike Gracia Washington
Debbie Thinks Dinesh Is a Little Obsessed With Brian Stelter
"I wanted to be thoughts about Brian stelter leaving CNN. And I also did a tweet which probably make you roll your eyes a little bit, because you think I'm a little obsessed with stealth. I think you're a little obsessed with stelter and with tubing. And with tube and with swallow. Well, that's because they all contribute a certain humor value. And they'll have a verb. Well, I don't know about delta, but. Well, Stella might begin. So stelter does this final show and it's kind of interesting because at the end he goes, I've been canceled by C and then he goes on to say, but there's a need for reliable sources. As if he was a reliable source. I was an unreliable. Talking about a misnamed. And then my favorite is he goes, he concludes by basically saying, well, the one thing I can say is that I had a one of a kind show. And that's really what got me is sort of the idea of a one of a kind. And I thought to myself, you know, as I remember from this goes back to the 1970s when I was a kid growing up in India, there was an Indian prime minister in the 70s, a guy named maraji Desai. And he was controversial in India because he would every day drink his own urine. So the reason this came to my mind is he was a one of a kind guy. Right? And what makes the analogy even closer is that he kept insisting on the medicinal properties of Europe. Doctors would tell him this is not healthy, you should stop doing this, but he thought it was so it's like stealthy. Did he die? Everybody keeps telling stelter. Your show is horrible. You need to pay attention to the other points of view. You're unbelievably dogmatic, but still to like more so I kept thinking, no, my show has medicinal properties. Here, I'm drinking my own urine, enjoy it,

Moving From Action to Administration With LTG Jerry Boykin
"You as a man of action. I mean, you're just a gregarious guy. You love big, you talk, you're there. You want to be an action. That's what about you the force to start with. When you started moving toward the more administrative roles, how did that for someone like you how did that make was that different? Was that almost a more difficult challenge? Oh, yeah. I mean, it always is, especially when you're sent from being on the front lines with the Delta force up to The Pentagon. You know, that's like being thrown off to San Francisco bridge or something. But you know what, what was good about that was, I. Actually was only only the staff therefore a little while, and I got sent over to the CIA. So I spent a couple of years at CIA running covert actions there to CIA. And so it kind of put me back in the fight, so to speak, and that was a great assignment. And I got to tell you, don't ever say anything bad about CIA around me, because they are, they have some of the finest professionals in the government. And then when I came back for my second tour at The Pentagon, I wound up going over to the Balkans running a task force there to capture war criminals, remember after the Dayton accords, there had been an agreement that all of the war and factions would turn in the people that were identified as war criminals, but they didn't do it. So I was running a task force out of Sarajevo that was capturing war criminals and that was that was a great assignment. I mean, I really enjoyed that. And then I left that job after about a year and came back to take over all the green berets, but I got to tell you, I just kept getting put back into those positions where I could feel like I was still part of the game.
A Discussion With LTG Jerry Boykin on Iran and Mogadishu
"Sort of tie two events together and you sort of you highlight in one of the first real big, I guess delta mission that we could discuss and she brought up was this issue in Iran during that time. It didn't end like everybody thought it would. In fact, it ended up in a very much a missed failure is the mission goes, but we grew out of that. Taking a step further to what you just said about Mogadishu, which was about 12 to 13 years apart. What was going on? I mean, how did you overcome what happened in Iran in the first take of really what was looking at. And then how it progressed to what you saw happening in Mogadishu. Yeah, that's an interesting question because I will tell you that when I came out of Iran, I was, I felt like I was carrying the weight of the world. You know, we had failed. We had failed. Our country, we had failed those 52 people that were held there as hostages and I got to tell you, we all, all of us, we carried a tremendous burden. But then we, several years later, we were able to look back and say, but what happened as a result of that? You know what happened as a result of that. Jimmy Carter was not reelected, and Ronald Reagan was, and Ronald Reagan began a ramp up of the military with increasing the budget giving them the priority and letting the commanders do their jobs, and had brought about a total modernization of our military.
Remember When Biden Said Vaccines Would Stop COVID Spread?
"Here's a short Montage put together by a French a town hall where Biden claimed the vaccines will stop the spread cut three go Because you can't build a wall high enough to keep out a vaccine the vaccine can stop the spread Of these diseases And so everybody talks about freedom and not to have a to have a shot or have a test Well guess what And so how about patriotism How about making sure that your vaccinated so you do not spread the disease to anybody else What about that What's the big deal We're not in a position where we think that any virus including the delta virus which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of unvaccinated people the various shots that people are getting now cover that You're okay You're not going to you're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations Continue to spread the diseases And so we should think of in a patriotic duty whether you're whether you're working in a supermarket to make sure you have been vaccinated so you're not spreading anything else or you're not likely to get the virus Now when Donald Trump got the virus it was a very very serious Indeed life threat We didn't have vaccines
President Biden and the Big COVID Lie
"Have the founder. The medical doctor of the physician who was the founder of America's frontline doctors. It's where I sent you folks if you wanted to try to get Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine and zinc. Both of which I took for about a year, I've had COVID twice. And I had the delta, which was supposedly and was serious in many cases, and I had the omicron, which is, in my case, it was a mild cold. I have enough antibodies to actually offer them as a gift to those who would like. She and I met at a rally for a freedom that you can't tell people. You will be fired from your job if you don't take a vaccine. That obviously doesn't work. I'd like you to hear doctor gold, I'd like you to hear what the president of the United States who now has COVID said a year ago. You're okay. You're not going to you're not going to get COVID if you haven't. These vaccinations. Yeah. So would you and I'm perfectly fine with whatever answer you have. Would you characterize that as a lie? 100% lie. We had Rachel wolinski, how did they see saying the same thing? But you couldn't get it. We had to sustain the same thing. They all said it. There was no way they didn't know why. I'm not a scientist, but I'm a bedside condition, so when you read the applications of the Pfizer Moderna applications in December of 2020, when they were authorized, they clearly stated they did not stop transmission all it did was reduce the severity of the symptoms, the problem with that is that it's the least able to cause a weekly vaccine in the middle of a respiratory pandemic. You will just encourage the creation of variants and that's exactly what we see
How Should We Approach Big Business? Newt Gingrich Explains
"I want to ask you, it's not just about government power, though, that gives people anxiety. It's also the amount of cultural and corporate power that the left has been able to assume. You talk about this in the book, but how are we to approach Google that could arguably be just as or even more powerful than parts of our government, or Disney that has control over our children's, what their consuming. Big government socialism is it also incorporate cultural and economic power? Yeah, it has to and also, let me take those two examples. We clearly are going to have to ultimately set some kind of rules of the road for these big Internet companies. I mean, we would not allow AT&T or Verizon to have the kind of control over our communication, our conversations, that these companies now exercise. In terms of Disney, I think somebody ought to be following a stockholder lawsuit. Yes. The Disney president made a decision, which has cost Disney and enormous amount of money in the collapse of a stock. And they ought to be held accountable for the when you start making on economic policies. You know, the same thing happened in Atlanta with the Major League Baseball All-Star Game where Coca-Cola and Delta two of the biggest corporations in Georgia, both of them acted against their own economic interest by siding on a totally false lie. Siding with the left and demanding that they All-Star Game being moved.

New Yorkers Drop Their Covid Vigilance as a BA.5 Wave Hits
"New York Times. So 6 COVID wave hits many New Yorkers shrug it off. Of course they do. We were alarmed when it was alarming. When we were alarmed during the first wave and during delta, then we figured out that omicron is not is far more transmissible and not nearly as deadly. And we stop wearing masks, and many of us, and I still urge you to get vaccinated and boosted. And when they come out with a new booster, I'll go and get that because I don't want to get sick and lots of people have had COVID in my life in the last month. Half and they have a bad cold. So be .5, it's just diluted. It's down in its lethality. It's up in its transmissibility in New Yorkers are treating it like the flu. And like a cold. And no matter how many people yell at us to do something differently, we're not changing our mind. We know what it is.

I'm not packing the geese of dream sheets. That might be a little too much to carry on the plane. I still don't know if I got to wear a mask to Germany or not. It's mixed. Delta doesn't give me a straight answer. Delta seems to suggest we're not going to have to wear the stupid mask for 9 and a half hours in the flight into Munich, but they're also saying, yeah, but some companies that require masks might need you to wear the mask as you get to the airport. And I'm like, I think that means when we get off the plane. Anyway, my pillow dot com. Thank you for supporting a patriot like Mike lyndell.

Can You Trust Fox News and National Review?
"Hey there folks I continue my conversation with John as zamira Z M I are a kz. Please sure you have it right. John, you were just talking about something horrifying. Please continue. Talk about whether you can trust Fox News or national review or these other institutions that we used to wait a minute. And national review, they both gone squishy on the same exact issues. You can always count on them to be 10° over to the right from the radical left. So if the radical left wants prison camps to kill 10 million Americans, I think Fox News and national review will come out and say no, we should only be 5. They're running if the left is jumping off a cliff. NASA review on Fox News will be sliding off the cliff. The point is they don't make principle take principled stance. They don't help us stop moving in the wrong direction. They just don't want to slow it down and do it in a nice orderly way. The point I want to make about Fox News, well, there's a lot, but basically two days ago I was flying home from San Diego from actually from Los Angeles where I'd been speaking and at our gate at LAX airport, delta has a gigantic balloon rainbow. And when I mean gigantic, it was absolutely gigantic. And I thought to myself, this is where we are that you have Delta Air Lines, celebrating Pride Month. Now, why? Let's think about why are they doing this? Partially they're doing this at a pure fear. All they know is we don't want to get in trouble. We want to go with the flow. We want to go, and I say, in my upcoming book, a letter to the American church, I only mentioned it, but it has to be said, Germans in the 30s, when they put out the swastika, they didn't know what that would come to represent.
"delta" Discussed on The Curious About Cannabis Podcast
"I don't really get that like prickly anxiety feeling. Yeah and that's been my experience. I've only experienced it through vaping. But it's kind of like that just kind of a softer kind of feeling and i think there's a good place for delta eight t c and that's kind of another side to this whole thing is as we unpack more of these concerns and everything it's molecules like delta eighty which actually has gone through some clinical trials that has been given to humans and the safeties been evaluated and everything we actually know a good bit about delta teach and so one thing that on sort of a flip side that makes me nervous as a lot of the journalism i've seen around delta eight just talks about delta eight not recognizing that really the concern are all of the things that aren't delta eight delta thc as molecule itself like. There's no reason to vilify or demonize that molecule it. It does belong. I think more so you know in a controlled market with delta nine. Thc and everything else but you know it's free seems to be just as safe as delta nine. Thc is just have to worry about how it's made. Yeah and there's a lot of counterfeit delta eight products out there and we can get into the whole valley vaping issue where a lot of like elicit stuff or stuff you buy at a gas station. Just real isn't very well regulated. And you know you're inhaling this stuff so that can create all kinds of health problems that are a little bit unforeseen. We don't really know a lot about this stuff. And so yeah. I i agree with you. It's not really worth anyone's time to vilify a compound. I think every compound has some application to some degree it just needs to be pure and it needs to be applied correctly you know. And the communication to the customer needs to be honest. I think that's a big part of this to that. Does you know Segue really well into the valley stuff just customers knowing what they're consuming and being able to make an informed decision and before going into the valley stuff something..
"delta" Discussed on The Daily
"Going to keep coming. Bright mu is not something quite enough for us to worry about yet. It's been circulating mostly in south america. The reason that scientists are watching it closely because it has a couple of mutations that were seen in beta and gamma which of the variants that made their way around south africa and brazil and those mutations cause the vaccines to be slightly less effective against the virus. So that's what makes me a little worrisome. But i think for the us. Delta is still the one that we need to keep an eye on so for the foreseeable future the focus will be on delta and i think that brings me to a question. We've asked you many times on this show. Which is when we're gonna reach what feels like some kind of an end to this pandemic and what you had told me when i last asked you this question. Was that the best we could really hope for is a time when the virus is just triggering regional outbreaks. Not kind of crisis level infection rates around the country and we aren't even at that phase yet we're still in the crisis phase. So what's your best guess now given the trajectory of delta given what's happening with breakthrough infections that debate over booster shots for when we leave the crisis phase and enter something more manageable and less. Scary delta has made me really wary of predictions on not going to make the prediction. But i do think that the pandemic will end the same way that we talked about before it will end for us as smaller outbreaks. That don't result in hospitals being overwhelmed. It's going to take a lot longer to get there than we thought mostly because of delta and and mostly because we are still trying to vaccinate so many people in this country so a lot depends on how many people we can get to. Eventually we are going to get there simply because most people will be protected either through natural infection or by finally getting the vaccine but it may take us many months it could take us till next spring it could take until next. Summer really depends on what the virus does to you. Keep saying next spring next summer that that means well into twenty twenty two. Don't hate me but yes.

"Of me just really enjoyed the fact that Mariner saved the day by continuously kicking ram. Did i guess. And then they dropped the boulder on jaffna boulders. What works gary mitchell. A is it just me or is that subplot with ransom like the most t. os thing ever and that is something about lower deck's have really gotten a kick out of. Is that a lot of their be plots where the cerebos has to go to plan it and do things and fix things they are so they are so nineteen sixties pulpy sifi that they absolutely could have been part of like te'o s or the end me too series from the seventies but because now that we're in this dame age where it so well animated and that's another thing. I noticed the the bump up animation quality and season two was noticeable. Pretty quickly and i feel like that just opens up so much more. That lower deck's can do in that. That's really cool for me to. I'd i noticed it's funny that you mention that. Because as i was watching the episode. I noticed right away that i'm like holy crap. They're doing depth of field like with with animation. I'm like because the in the background Mariner was kind of at a focus as they were on as they were focused on the captain. And i'm like oh wow. They're like upping their game and doing looked up the field and focusing in animation which is so nice. I appreciate little stuff like that. Little details like that in speaking of the captain captain freeman I love her and marriner together like the mother daughter. Energy is just so entertaining. I love john lewis. She's a phenomenal voice actress Tawny newsome is fantastic. If you saw the little video of those two at the premiere where they were just kind of playing around going back and forth like the chemistry between those two is really a lot of fun. And i'm looking forward to how that dynamic with captain freeman and mariner is going to progress as the season goes on. But let's go to boy mer for a second. He wasn't in this too much but he was living the dream as it were being on the uss titan with captain william reicher going on all sorts of crazy adventures. And he's clearly horrified.

Looks like some sort of hole or anomaly or something like that and record just does doesn't big jazz metaphor and boy was like what does that even mean. It was pretty great. You can tell. Jonathan frakes is having the time of his life. That's the thing you can see from a lot of lower taxes that everybody is just having a blast and really comes through. Yeah for sure i. I know a lot of people. Like i love you. I know some people complain about it or whatever like the ring morte or it cuts to quick and between jokes..

We hadn't gotten together nowhere year cell. That was our plan to you. Know get together as a family for the fourth of july so that was really my really really driving force. I wanted to see family. So you got the shot i did. I did how to go. You know my initial. When i first went to get it it was through a drive. The reta A baseball part here. I was in the line to drive up in an accident. They had cone setup in as i got closer to the area where you get. The shot actually pulled over poured out of the line until parking space and called a friend of mine. And then you know she had gotten it like the week before and she was like mirror. Just do it. you know. i'm a stay on the phone with you. South like okay. I'm i'm just to do so again back in the line and i got the first shot so you almost didn't do it. I did almost denied due to getting the shot and feeling free and accepted to hang out with family. Change your mind about the shot. Did you become someone who told other people to get it now. Now did not. I'm still. I believe that it is. It's a personal choice. I know is a public health issue. But like i said i'm just not really convinced with the the science and the information so i do believe that is a personal choice. That's really interesting so even as a public health worker knowing this is a public health issue you still think people should make their own decision on the vaccine. I do i do because you have to remember to sean. I i mean i i've been. I've been a nurse over twenty some years so i've seen behind the curtain of science. I've seen behind the curtains of health care by the healthcare disparities Especially in the black and brown community. So of course i've seen it up close and personal and i'm not talking about you know nineteen sixties. I'm talking about two thousand and twenty. What kinds of disparities have you seen mary. This access to care and as a huge Challenge for our community of just having adequate access to good quality. Care because of course you know lack of insurance or lack of quality insurance indian here. Of course. I'm here in mississippi so being one of the most impoverished state so now you add dating in so i feel like it's like okay get vaccinated but i'm not gonna give you access to fresh fruits and vegetables you know. Get back some native. But you live in eerie. That may be The air may be polluted or you live in an area. There's no sidewalks so you can't get out or the crime is so bad you can't get out and actually get it out in your neighborhood and exercise but get a vaccination and this will keep you from getting corona virus but your dad from everything else. I mean i totally feel what saying. But i don't necessarily buy the argument that just because everything else is messed up and broken that. You shouldn't take this one opportunity to fix something else. That is new and kind of broken in our society. You know what i mean like. Maybe we are accepting a certain level of crime or malnutrition in our society but there was this new corona virus. And we did break all sorts of records to come up with this new vaccine that was vetted by scientists and approve temporarily by the fda and made readily available to all americans while a lot of the world. Mary didn't have it. And that's why i say it is a choice but like why do we have to have one or the other if we're going to be concerned with people's health less be concerned all the way around you know it's like going into a community and saying that we're here to fix this part entrust us that will fix this part but this part of it will be broken on this side but then you want you want people to trust..

"What percentage of people in the gulf states are vaccinated right now. So right now. The percentage of people that are vaccinated is forty five percent or less. That's like across several states. That's across mississippi. Louisiana alabama so louisiana has the highest rate of those more than sixty percent of people in louisiana are not fully vaccinated. And that's overwhelmingly. Who's ending up in this hospital with cova. Alabama is the lowest or perhaps tied with mississippi for the lowest okay so some people are getting vaccinated. Who's getting the shot. The people who are getting vaccinated right now in these states are people who probably took a wait and see approach at the beginning of the vaccine. Rollout maybe they were unsure of the cove in nineteen vaccine and they wanted to wait a little bit to see how it would work in their friends. it's also people who are seeing what's happening with this delta variant and seeing that it is really highly transmissible and pretty much affecting people who are unvaccinated. We have seen a bump and vaccination rates In places like louisiana where the weekly average of people getting vaccinated has a seemed to triple over the past few weeks because people are seeing that the variant is so dangerous. and who's still holding out. What we've seen is that a lot of the hesitancy of this region is coming from rural white conservatives and people of color for people of color the vaccine skepticism appears to be coming from a history of medical distressed. And then of course. There's also a lot of rural white conservatives. I've spoken to say they don't trust the government and they don't like to be told what to do when percents book to for npr stray in may with brandon day. He lives in a small rural town in north mississippi of it. Is you know i'm american. I can do it. i want. You ain't gonna take mug guns. And it's my body and into ozzy significant research significant. You know anything why. Take the risk. How our state and local governments responding. Well some liberal cities across the south are and have honestly really been leading the charge when it comes to preventative. Measures like mass mandates. So jackson mississippi has had one for a long time. And so as new orleans and the louisiana governor has been strict on cova to an implemented a mask mandate recently but more conservative leaders have resisted. That kids will not be forced by government or by schools to wear a mask in school so for the most part. It's really up to help departments in these states to offer guidance and recommendations when it comes to the specific things that those health departments are doing. It's been things like engaging with local doctors asking celebrities to do. Psa's times that. I'm national spelling bee champion guinness book controller and future neuroscientists. Nba star recently. Start you asking for my advice years. Mine get jd acc. I e and give cope with the boot. Some places have really gone all in over here louisiana. Where i'm at a lot of places have been offering a free pound of crawfish a fish. Fry dinner to get your vaccine. Oh man hundred thirty pounds of fishing here. These mud bugs have boiled into this beautiful red color. That's like a scarlet right delicious and safe all the way up to a million dollar lotteries. The way this is gonna work is fourteen lucky louisianans. With at least one kovic will win. Cash prizes or scholarships throughout the month of july culminating with a grand prize of one million dollars. That's going on in louisiana right now. People are getting big fat checks for a hundred thousand dollars because they got the vaccine. These are states that we will remember from last year were resistant to shutting down. There still resistant to mask mandates. Did it surprise you at all as a reporter that they were resistant to getting the vaccine. You know I'll say that there is a stance and the low vaccination rate wasn't surprising to me as a reporter and also someone who grew up in jackson mississippi. And that's because i realized that these issues really go beyond politics. There's not as much of a robust healthcare infrastructure here. There's been a lot of hospital closures over the last decade. there's not as much engagement with the medical establishment. They're also more chronic health conditions here and of course some of these states haven't expanded medicaid louisiana's only state of the gulf states that have expanded it and the list goes on and on and on for why a lot of these communities just weren't prepared to have a public health official come to their communities and say okay you need to take a shot because they haven't engaged with the medical establishment for so long and of course what makes this surge and these hospitalizations and these deaths especially painful. Is that unlike when we saw this kind of thing happening last year there is a vaccine now right and i think that's what is so frustrating and exhausting for public health officials who i really do. Think in the south of done an excellent job of trying to think of different ways to get the vaccine. Now i think what's exhausting is that they thought that was going to be the light at the end of the tunnel. That was going to be the last thing that was necessary. Okay we have a vaccine now. We just need to figure out how to get it to everyone and put it everywhere. That's the last barrier we have. But we've seen now it's.

"Once upon a time there was a pandemic and no one knew how it would end but then there was a vaccine out of nowhere like a dream and then there was another and another there were all of a sudden too many vaccines to count and all people needed to do was get the shot and the pandemic wouldn't be as bad a thing but they didn't and here we are with no end in sight.

Yesterday was incredibly busy. What from thirty nine to forty seven code. Icu patients and there are a lot of children are also being admitted to hospitals as well some children and even died of covert in mississippi and louisiana.

"Myself and my family so much. I haven't but immunization and i think what is really important to keep in context. Here is that the overwhelming majority of people with kobe. Nineteen in our hospitals and stick with copa nineteen are on vaccinated and this bad news about delta potentially being able to spread between vaccinated people is not good but it doesn't mean that this is a suddenly a pandemic of the vaccine that it is still largely a pandemic of the unvaccinated. And that's the thing even if say a hundred thousand vaccinated americans get covert. That is a crazy big number of people. It sounds like a ton. Well one hundred sixty million.

But we're going come back around let's jump into new business and talk about the news from star trek that star trek for the voyage home aka. The one with the whales will be showing at fathom events for specials theatrical screenings in august. We're going to get a theatrical weekend for star trek four. This is really cool. And and i'm gonna talk a little bit about this. I'm going to gush abell theatrical screenings for a little bit but i really like this choice of a movie because i think this is one that people can really rally around heather. I i really think that this was a good choice. Oh was i know. I have seen the one of the point of. It's in a long long long long long long time. And again he means you in hatton is that is coming to the always would be very issues to make sure i watch it again because i am a sutter four federal theatricals screenings. And i think there's just some experience watching the movie on a big mediator agreeing that it is launching Your computer phone home it. it's so It is the way movies made being zoo. It steph and more. I could not agree more in. I love theatrical screenings. Like this that that are special events Because from the anime side of thanks. This is something that happens. Semi-frequently with a lot of anime theatrical releases and i have seen them become real big community gatherings and saying they're almost like many conventions when these things go down for example a couple of years ago when The the dragon. Ball z movies battle of the gods and the movies from dragon ball super were being aired in the theaters limited screenings. You saw so many fans just intermingling. And just celebrating their love of this franchise and it was such a fun event to be a part of more than just seeing the movie on the big screen. it was just a great opportunity to be around. People like minded people a. I think that this is exactly what this is going to be. I think people are going to be looking to get out. I think people are going to look forward to seeing this movie It's directed by leonard. Nimoy it's got an environmentalist story catherine hicks in it. Why love and everything and i. I'm really excited. I will be getting tickets as soon as i can. I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing some people at my screening. That might even be in qasr play because that happens with things like this and i just think it's really cool so jazzed. He later all. But i had been to sewn special. The activists the asheville screenings in my area particularly of who which got huge crowds. Like you re for the enemies so the democrats are out there. You just hit it at the right time with right movie and i think that the most wanted to turn that a lot of people. I completely agree then before you know. We'll have the motion picture to do it all over again all right so also it new business Anson mount You might have heard of him out. He's he's an actor nothing too big. He doesn't have a whole lot going on He tweeted that star trek strange. New worlds is wrapping up. Its first season of production. It's it's nearly done and while we don't officially have a premier date yet. I feel like if they're this close to finishing production. Were probably going to get a date very soon and dare. I say it might even be at the animation showcase at san diego comic con. Now it's saying that at cbo comecon. It's going to be focusing on star trek prodigy and lower deck's but heather. I think that. I i will say i would not be surprised if we get a little bit more from star trek a san diego comic con. Because if we're this close to wrapping up season one of strange new worlds. I think something's coming you know you don't think so. I think that they any world show exactly how much everyone is reading for. It and you are not going to get any news. Very last second comes to that. So like their rob here at the last anyway way like two weeks from now we do that. They're gonna leave you hanging in a says for this show as long as humanly possible. Because i mean we say over for the discovery in. They started filming a little bit before world a trailer for season two card which started filling around the world. We could have had world trailer. I know there's no reason why we got that for. They're using not to show you thing because they know strange new worlds right now. They own hype skyrocket. Even more not an win. Anything about the.

"Very small so that's right in general. It appears that these vaccines are really good at stopping transmission but we're dealing with the new variant which is really serious and there isn't a whole lot of data on delta in particular so you know public health officials have to deal with this kind of quandary all the time. You've got a fast moving crisis. You have incomplete data. You gotta make a decision so the. Who has made this decision of recommending that people wear masks indoors even if they're vaccinated but that is not what The center for disease control. The united states is saying right. It is saying instead. You don't have to wear masks. So now the cdc and the w. h. o. Are very much at odds. Well they're making different recommendations looking at the same data and you have to bear in mind that the who is giving advice for the whole world which is a lot less vaccinated overall than the united states and even in the united states. The cdc is still saying that you have to wear a mask even if you're vaccinated in healthcare settings on public transportation. They also recommend that. If you're in a very crowded unventilated places that you wear a mask. But they've been emphasizing while these vaccines protect you against delta and it is the case that if you're vaccinated fully you have good protection against delta. That's clear but with its huge number of people who are still unvaccinated under vaccinated public. Health officials have a a tough choice to make. What did they recommend that people do. Well i'm not sure if this is a fair question car obama ask it anyway. Which one of these big public health agencies seems right or maybe writer wear masks in this moment to fend off delta and its potential risks. Or no if you're fully vaccinated you don't need to what team my on Look i'm just a. I'm a journalist. I'm not. I'm not an epidemiologist are so high myself will just keep an eye on on rates You know in connecticut. We have very low rates right now which is great but if those start to shoot up if it seems to be delta's driving it i might rethink that personally both to protect myself and to protect others but i'll have to play it by here so if i'm reading between the lines correctly you were going to allow yourself to perhaps keep walking into a store or restaurant without a mask following the current guidance in the us but if things change and delta starts to take off in the community where you live in connecticut you might change your behavior. You might become more vigilant. You might be putting that mask back on well. What i do is based on the most important thing which is that. I am fully vaccinated and so when anybody is thinking about. What should i be doing in terms of delta. That's the first thing they should think about. Like am i vaccinated if not when i'm going to get vaccinated It should be as soon as possible now. Putting on a a mask when you go endorse someplace. That's not a big deal. I mean that's pretty straightforward thing to do. We're not talking about closing down schools and so on and so if the state of connecticut decides that they need to just tell everybody just to put on a mask because it's too hard to make an honor system work that's fine with me. That's totally fine with me. If that means that fewer people are ending up in the hospital and dying. I'm happy to do my part. And do you expect whether it's connecticut or new york or the cdc itself that that kind of guidance might be forthcoming sometime soon. Beast on the transmissibility of delta. You know. I mean making predictions about this pandemic has been kind of a a losing game in a lot of ways if you've been vaccinated than delta is not a big risk but for everybody else. This variant is really dangerous and so they're going to have to be public. Health measures that take into account that we have this mixture where less than half of all americans are fully vaccinated and really defended against this variant and there are some parts of the country where less than a third are fully vaccinated and those places are even greater risk so the reality of the coming months because of delta is that those who have gotten vaccinated tens of millions of americans may need to make sacrifices in some regions of the country on behalf of those who have not gone back state. It's a possibility. Yes but that's what it needs to be in a society that.

"Hundred thousand signatures. So this was coming from all over the place Star trek fans reading rainbow fans. Just everyone that has been touched and influenced by lavar burton's work There really hasn't been anyone else quite like this. As far as the idea of replacing alex trebek's the host of I think in a lot of ways if you look at the internet it really is his to lose and it's going to happen. July twenty sixth through the thirtieth So heather Here on the podcast. Before you and i have talked about what happens sometimes when the internet gets very loud and makes demands and businesses kind of acquiesced to those demands We saw that with star trek strange new worlds. And now we're seeing that with lavar burton What do you think about levar burton's chances to be on jeopardy. I off as i have. Obviously i want to keep the same position that i have with strange worlds and i don't believe in thin petitions and fans banning together to get businesses to acquiesce to their will. That being said. I'm really happy that this worked out for lavar and i really glad that he's getting a chance to show his skills and guest host because this is something that like. It didn't just come out of the blue. It's something that he actually tweeted on twitter. Like back in twenty seventeen or something so at least like four years ago stating that when alex trebek's retired his dream job was to get to host jeopardy and so it's something that he's wanted for a long time. It's something that the fans got behind and not even just the fans. I mean we were talking. That petition was shared by other members of hollywood like in professionals getting behind this this petition to give him a chance to guest host on the show. So that's saying a lot about lavarra's character and how he is really not just revered by the fans but also revered by his peers. I'm so glad he's getting the chance and it definitely is his to lose. I think because when they announced when. Jeffrey tweeted the deputy Site on twitter tweeted about their last set of guest host for this season and they listed all their names and then they had lavar at the bottom with an exclamation point next to it. Nobody else had an exclamation point. I mean come on. It's just a little signs there that are saying. Hey it really is his job to lose. And i hope you succeed. I do definitely although this may or may not impede on him in a future season. Star trek ricard. So we'll just have to see and leave that open i. He stated like. I mentioned in the weekly track episode. I did last week. He stated unequivocally that he was not going to be in season two but he definitely hinted around the idea of him being in season three but only if he gets the job would it really impact him. Because i mean the card films in. La jeopardy films in la so we make it work. He could probably make it work. Yeah he was gonna show up on the card. I think if he he gets the job he could definitely make it work and if he does get the job and somehow can't make it work and showing up in the card. The fans would be okay with that because they'll just be happy that he's hosting jeopardy.

"Expert on the stuff that they experience there. So it's a wonderful concept and it's a unique way to once again explore these strange new worlds that only star trek voyager has explored before. I thought with your question heather is. How did these kids find a federation starship in the delta quadrant is. Was it the equinox from great episode. The episode that i absolutely loved was it the us equinox For everyone that doesn't know that was an episode where voyager ran into another federation starship lost in the delta quadrant but they had gone insane. Yeah and i had felt be. It's the equinox. Then then as i was looking in scrolling through the internet it seems as though the equinoxes actually got destroyed so that was one that i kind of scrapped. It's an interesting question I like that so far. We still have questions about the show for me. Personally you don't have to tell me everything and give me all of the details right away. I kind of like going in with a little bit of mystery it. It makes me more interested in what you're going to show. Maybe maybe it's a shuttle craft. Maybe it's run about. I don't know maybe it's a. Maybe it's the serena who knows but i think it's kinda cool that we don't really know everything. Yeah that's kind of cool to me. Yeah i mean if there's one thing star trek is very good at it's just giving you a whole bunch of hints and nowhere near the entire story as to what's going to happen because they want you tune in and watch the new show and figure out what's going to happen that way so i can't wait to see it. I can't wait to it and speaking of getting hints show's coming up. We got some of those for new business to of star trek cart season two. We saw a trailer a teaser. And we heard the voice of one. John delancey who will be reprising his role as q in season two of star trek cart. So as it stands right now. We have whoopi goldberg. Reprising her role as guinan. I imagine i feel like at this point. Lavar burton and or michael dorn is probably showing up. Cow wouldn't surprise me of gates mcfadden comes back as beverly crusher but now that john delancey is confirmed as q but there was something in this trailer..

"I think what it was at the very least somewhere. In the first two or three seasons of the next generation that was my first contact with star trek. And yeah i think it's it's shaped both of us over the years and star. Trek is still here and still going strong. Yeah like i honestly. I'll admit. I probably did not watch the next generation while it was running in its original run on tv. Because i was born in one thousand nine hundred seven the next generation premiered in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven so i am as exactly as old as the show. His three years older than the show. Okay yeah so. I'm exactly as well as the show is and like i said i remember the first episode i watched was cue which was season three. I think so. I definitely didn't watch it when i was three years old. I was older. So i was a syndication baby when it comes to tng. But that's also a a huge testament to the impact that star trek has because star. Trek would not be what it is today. Without the ways syndication was set up back. Then i mean that's what really hooked fans that's what hooked fans of the original series was going into syndication. And that's what hooked fans like me on the No doubt we're still in old business but we're going to move to star trek voyager now or sort of sort of that really it's star trek prodigy Because along with first contact day As it had been mentioned a kate mulgrew will be reprising. Her role as kathryn janeway for the upcoming animated series star trek prodigy and during first contact day of the creators of the show revealed that jane way will be known as the emergency training hologram on this ship for the alien characters in star trek prodigy The ship will be in the delta quadrant and star trek prodigy will be taking place in the year twenty three eighty three after voyager in the delta quadrant. So now we have an idea. We're starting to get a little bit more information about star trek prodigy. And how kathryn janeway. We'll play into this and we gotta look at janeway In cg holographic form with her coffee mug. And the i guess. This is the voyager uniform. This would be the voyager uniform. Yes and yeah. I think it looks great and i love as she had the coffee mug. It looks fantastic. I love the concept. My only question is how did a bunch of random kids in the delta quadrant somehow find and or steel an abandoned starfleet ship there. That's the biggest question in my head. But i think it makes complete sense to that jane way would have recorded her voice or whatever you wanna call it for some sort of training program for other starfleet vessels that were going into the delta quadrant Coming back she would have been the foremost.

Hello everybody hey susie thank you so much for coming on. We really appreciate you joining us now as heather said Your fan art is awesome. That you are. I'm just going to go ahead and say you are my favorite star trek church twitter. Follow you are my absolute favorite. And it's just a joy to have you on so let's just jump in so to new listeners. Of the pod. We we do this in a format where we talk about old business where we cover kind of the classic era of star trek new business where we talk about. What's happening in the world of star trek right now and later upcoming business where we look beyond pawn always intended so starting with old business. Heather the women of star trek as you said we're celebrating women which i'm always in favor of gigi and i'm not sorry. I'm not saying so for me. This is kind of a no brainer guys because it was my mother and my sister who introduced me to star trek My mother was a big fan of guinan in the next generation So it could just go from there in heather. Like i said i'm gonna let you take the con- on this one old business. The women of star trek. Yeah i mean that's a very very broad topic when you think about it. Throughout the fifty five years of star trek there have been some amazing Inspiring and just all around all inducing women characters of star trek and so were just going to highlight some of the ones today. That inspire us. Personally i've talked multiple times about how much i love captain. Janeway she is my favorite captain. she is probably the first character i go to when i think of a woman character in star. Trek button aspires me. Because she really had everything thrown at her across the seven seasons of voyager and she handled it all with race in audacity the end just that classic. Jane waste snark where she wasn't going to let anything get her down even when it did occasionally get her down So suzy i'm going to start with you 'cause this is particularly why we chose to invite you today. So what inspires you about. The women characters of star trek and is there anyone in particular that you immediately go to when you think of that so first of all i wanna say i'm general generational trekkie too so like david. My mom introduced me to star trek. She watch star trek from the original series and then we watched together drain t and g when i was a kid. I love jamie to actually. Because i am a woman in business and so i admire her as a boss. I admire all the really difficult decisions that she has to make. Sometimes in the heat of the moment. I don't always agree with the difficult choices she makes. Although i do agree about to fix but the yes oh so. Jamie is on my shortlist bolanos. I'm doing a voyager. Watch right now. So i'm in a voyage or had space Lana i also love. 'cause there's not a lot of latino representation in track and so And so i just think she's a really cool strong character and then obviously my piece for women make track was dot zia. Janica is my favorite character in star trek The follow me on twitter. I call her my wife There's wedding pictures And so she is just really inspiring to me because You know she was queer presentation on tv when we didn't have a lot of that and so it was really important to me growing up and she's also this really just competent character and Shy meek kids. She was kind of the opposite of everything that i was and she just kind of lights up a room whenever she walks in and she just has such a commanding presence in such a joy of life that she is a character that i just really love and then just really resonates with me for having a of my anime compadres out there. What she said about jet zia would essentially make gen zia suzy's why fu to to translate the fans out there.

You know the the snow is starting to melt here in the mid west. The sun is starting to shine on occasion when it's not raining outside and you know things are looking up. I think there's nothing more. I love than watching. The snow melt away. 'cause i am the snow. Melting away is just a a great sign for me My lady friend is visiting here from jacksonville. Florida she's originally from michigan. Like me and she was looking for snow and she's mad that there wasn't any in instinct she's crazy. Well you know. I could see the appeal when you haven't seen it in a while but when you've dealt with it every three years on it and you'll have basis then. Yeah no no appeal there. Alright so that's enough of that. Typical podcast talk the start of a show. Let's jump into the star trek stuff. Everybody this is a star trek. Podcast in case you missed the opening and we talk about old new and upcoming business. So let's start off with a topic that a conveniently is happening right now in. I was a little bit inspired. What can i say. Heather listeners as trekkies as lovers of star trek We we love a franchise that isn't always the most popular thing in the world It isn't it hasn't exactly been quote unquote mainstream in a little bit. And there are other franchises that take hold of pop culture and the lexicon more than star. Trek does from time to time and we have people in our lives. That don't necessarily get what we love about star trek. So i wanna ask this to you. Heather for our old business in. I would love to hear from the listeners. Out there on our twitter at prom trek pod and if you wanna send us an email make it a little long form..

"Shows that are that are kind of far out on long range. Scans that strange new worlds and that start prodigy. Well what do we really know about them in. Twenty twenty one. Do we have anything at all. The first season the star trek prodigy is supposed to come out sometime in two thousand twenty one. Okay look. I hear your skepticism skepticism. But hear me out. You're out especially with the way things are right now. It is a lot easier to do animation from a safe distance and at home than it is to do live action. So i think when we're looking at the potential for what new star trek we're gonna get in twenty twenty one. I think we're definitely going to get season two of lower decks and we're definitely going to get season wanna prodigy because that can happen. It's very realistic. That they can get the voices recorded. They can get the animation done. They can put everything together safe and socially distance and out to us as a finished product before the end of this year. When it comes to the live action not gonna happen this year. I'm i'm saying it's highly unlikely and roof. How going to cope with such a lack of star trek podcast. That's a good question. I don't know how we're going to have to let things over and we're gonna see what will find things to talk about for for upcoming business. We we might just make this a little bit more loosey. Goosey of star trek podcast. Going forward we'll see what we do but it has been fantastic doing the show with you. It's been an absolute privilege to have you as my co host especially through two thousand twenty with everything happening in the world we've managed to have star trek to get it get us through it end. Doesn't that feel kind of appropriate that we have this show that has always been about optimism and looking forward to the future about how humanity can grow and change and do better and be better. Isn't it great. We've had this. I think Star trek has definitely been a gift in twenty twenty It was there when a lot of people needed at the most. And i said this before. And i'll say it again. Like timing as to how they release these shows was just perfect because we got lower deck's at a time where we needed something fun and something light and something to brighten our days and make a smile and make us laugh and then we get discovery right after that at the point where we really needed that. Hope and optimism and that true believer stuff to believe in our future and you know it has just been a gift in this year. That has been crazy in every sense of the word and i'm so thankful for it and even though we don't know if we're going to get any of that in the upcoming year you know we got it when we need and you know we can go into this year just being a little bit more optimistic in a little bit for what the year can break. Even if it's not going to bring us any live action star. Trek said so. Thank you all for coming along with us for all for all twenty three weeks of track. It's been real. It's been fun and it's been real fun Everybody this has been the prominent merchants podcast. Where on the web at my website delta mike dot com..
