"Wearing Confederate flag waving capital invading gun toting Trump pumping American patriot could possibly refuse. We will get to that in just a moment. The unvaccinated, it turns out are destroying our health care system and in many ways, our society as well. I'll get to that in about 10 minutes in the second hour of the program, who's going to get blamed for tanking our economy? This is actually starting to turn into a really interesting political question. Because you know the 2022 midterms. The race for those midterms really begins in about three or four weeks. In a big way. And at the same time the Republican strategy of trying to crash the economy by encouraging people not to get vaccinated. Seems to be starting to work. We'll see anyhow, how's that all going to play out? And there's a new study that we'll get into in the second hour of our program about unmask unvaccinated kids and the impact on our schools. That is, um Somewhere between Um, predictable and shocking, and, uh, definitely horrible. In our third hour. We have a guest on Dr Amira and they are And I believe it is who is the policy research and research coordinator with the movement for Black lives and the movement on Black for Black Lives is unveiled, unveiled a new report on how the feds Largely under the Trump administration were actually targeting people during the black lives movement. Black Lives matter Protests We'll get into that our third hour and the most bizarre, crazy alert Fox News. Women, Kamala Harris. It's getting weird. We'll get to that in the third hour, but I wanted to start out with our our freedom passports. You know, it's it's time to have Freedom passports. I mean, you know, the Pfizer vaccine is now fully approved. Those of us who did the right thing and got vaccinated are sick and tired of living half a life because of the cove idiots out there who refused to get vaccinated. Um, yeah, In my opinion, assigned to let them stand on the outside of society looking in rather than the rest of us, you know, no shoes, no shirt, no passport, no service. California and New York have created their own certificates of vaccination that could be used as passports. Clear the company that speeds you through airports based on biometrics, like your fingerprint. They're offering a, uh, a covid passport. I have one with them. In fact, they're and they're offering a free version. If you're not a subscriber to clear, But the most interesting part of this is that the Centers for Disease Control. The CDC has this program called the Safe. Just plug it into a search engine. The dash s a F E V safe. And it is everything except the app. You plug in your your your personal information a little bit of your person, you know enough that they can tie you to the database in your stage. Because our states do actually keep track of who is vaccinated and who isn't or at least who is vaccinated. And it pulls that data in and puts it in the app and and creates a little picture. I've got the picture on my phone. Of your basically vaccine passport. This is the Centers for Disease Control. Vaccine passports are not new things back in 1979. I got the first one. You know the first my first real vaccine passport. It was a yellow card. And it was there and I had to go to a special doctor because I was traveling in parts of the world where there's diseases that we don't have here. You know, Dougie fever and stuff like that. And I had to be a yellow fever. Cholera. I had to be vaccinated against this stuff. And They the special tropical disease Doctors specializes and, you know, setting people up getting people ready to travel overseas after I got these vaccines, which was one of them, just like turned my arm black and and made me feel like sick as a dog for a couple of days, But, you know, Hey, It's you know the diseases and in some of these parts of the world are just absolutely worse than the vaccine. And for she's the better part of 20 years, right up until the late eighties. I carried that yellow passport, the vaccine passport inside my regular passport. I didn't have to just show it to get out of the country had to show it to get back into the country. So you know, this is nothing new. We've been doing this in our schools for 40 years. We want to go to school. Show your vaccine status. If you really want to own the cons, we should you know, the CDC could create a vaccine passport with a picture on it. And we could designate that as I need to vote with. How about that? Anyhow, IATA is doing this. The International Transport Association. They're coming up with one. IBM is going up with one Israel has rolled one out. Denmark has rolled one out France's rolled one out now the United Kingdom. I mean, doesn't people say Oh, But what about my freedom? Well, what about my freedom Not to die. What about my freedom to go to a restaurant or a bar or a public venue and not worry that the person next to me is blowing a billion viruses a minute at me? Mean freedom is such a misused word. Shouldn't we have the freedom to remain free of illness? That's why I think we should call these things. Freedom passports. I mean, it's really bizarre when you think you know legislators in Texas and Arkansas. Have come right out and said that a woman who wants to get an abortion a gets an abortion. Should face the death penalty or at least light at least life in prison. You know, because of death. And yet they want People to be able to blow a deadly disease in your face because they've joined the anti mask anti vax Trump called I mean, maybe we should call him right to life. Passports. What do you think? Anyway. The main international objection to passports is that it's going to widen the divide between the haves and the have nots. This in this case, you know, there's about a billion people on Planet Earth who have no idea whatsoever well, vaccine passport could be their their entree into the world of having some sort of identification. We did this back in the eighties was smoking in restaurants. I'd rather eat without having you blow your poisonous smoke in my face. Why can't we say I'd rather eat? Not have you blow your poisonous viruses in my face? I mean, the NFL has weighed in on this. You get private businesses. I just don't get the opposition to this.

"So we just heard that masking is into a good long term solution for the pandemic and that what it really comes down to. Is that more. People just need to get vaccinated. We've had dozens and dozens and dozens of people who've responded and written in and said i went and got the vaccine today or yesterday with 'cause it. This is mark. Valentine's speaking to here now on the half of his brother phil. Who's currently hospitalized with cova. Nineteen said you know. I made the decision based on my situation. But i know now that a lot of people didn't get the vaccine because i didn't get the vaccine. That is what i would like to correct. Fill is a conservative radio. Talk show host based in nashville and he's been a prominent critic of cova precautions and the vaccines take politics out of it. It's time for us to get together and five. This thank collectively. And just put all the conspiracies in microchips and all that business aside and go get vaccinated and don't put your family through what his wife unrest. I'm going through the people not taking the vaccine report. That the not very worried about kotik. Dr robert blended is a professor of health policy and political analysis at harvard university. Anybody been involved in vaccine. Campaigns knows that the step is i. People get worried. Just think about polio. When i was a child my parents just in our heads. These pictures of kids in iron lungs and children who have disabilities the rest of their life blended opole in the spring with the robert wood johnson foundation which we should note is an npr funder and the harvard teaching chan school of public health. And it found that there's a growing distrust towards agencies like the cdc and national institutes of health. So he says there needs to be a different approach in order to boost vaccination rates he spoke with. Npr's kelsey snell we've seen in the last few weeks an increase in vaccinate so there is some movement but i need to make a point of something that happened here north miami a collapse of a building where ninety eight people guide their pictures. Were all over the paper. How terrible it was. The president came down with a family. The governor did we have thousands of people dying every month. Their pictures are in anywhere. It's human stories that move them and they're not human stories. I don't know that. Susan just died that i know i know about her story. I don't know how grieving family is. So it's a question of personal connection with the stories that are being told that the numbers that people are seeing yes critical care. Physicians and nurses went on social media. And said i'm doing with people near death and they're begging for vaccine and they're saying they're sorry they didn't take it. Well that's a story that really could impact how people were saying. I'm not gonna take this vaccine. Think because it's people like that and they realized that they could be worried if they were going to be in that. Icu that's who people would trust and it would have to be local. And that's why the decision of the sixty medical organizations to recommend health organizations requiring their employees to absolutely take the vaccine has a chance of having a big secondary effect and these are all organizations that have local in community hospitals clinics medical groups and as they try to move their own employees forward. They are going to have an educational effect and they're not going to be seen as anything to do with washington. You so you believe that. Those changes will drive regular everyday people who might not have the vaccine to go and then get the shot. Yes and now. Here about it locally. And it'll be their voices alabama tennessee mississippi. Saying you just can't come to our hospital. You're endangering people's lives and it'll be a local voice of clinicians and they're likely to have people dealing with the critically. Ill and i emphasize this all the time. You want to talk about those get critically ill. It's like again when i was a child. Most people polio did not end up the iron lung by for parents that picture. It could be your child. A had a staggering impact on them. But we're now pushing a vaccine on people who aren't sure their risk of dying here and that's the message has to change and it has to come from people you trust for medical device which means if i live in nashville. It's gonna be a physician and nurse at institutions. I go to the tell me this. That's dr robert blended professor of health policy and political analysis at harvard university. You're listening to consider this from npr. I'm elsa chang. And i'm jonathan wilson with w amu with dc's indoor mask mandates set to take effect on saturday and the delta variants spreading quickly across the region. One local epidemiologist says the city's announcement is timely. Our reporter margaret barthel has the details. Dr amira roa's is an epidemiologist at george mason university. She says she's worried about sewing. Vaccinations and the emergence of the delta variant basically if you are unvaccinated and you're not taking the proper precautions you will get infected so it just makes sense at this point to go ahead and reimpose the mass mandate the mandate comes two months after the district lifted. Its original mask. Mandate into day after federal officials recommended indoor masking for all in areas with significant community spread of the current virus. It's not clear when the new mask mandate will end. Rose expects current a virus cases to continue to go up more and more children. Go back to school. We'll be seeing more people.
