"Darnell is continue. We have thousands on hold JD and German, Eric and Janice and many others, but, uh Away from sports. Simone Biles away from the S E. C, which is the greatest football conference in the history of mankind about to add two more. And then after that, they're going to add four more. That's the way it's going to go. We'll see what happens the next two years. Talk about something more germane to the average Americans, which is there's 75 to 80 million schoolchildren that very soon are going to start to go back to class. What's the real reason Kids have to be masked. It's because they're at risk of catching the covid 19 the delta very no, no, not at all. And proof of that. As unwittingly an interview that John Berman of CNN did what Dr Rochelle Walensky in which he decided to her, the facts, the statistics of Children and Great Britain. Tens of thousands have been exposed and what occurred So before I comment further, Let's Sarah John Berman in a rare lucid moment, ask a question of Dr Rochelle Walensky in charge of the C D. C. Now the Delta variant. Isn't making kids any sicker per se. Is it because the statistics as the studies have come back from chump shoulder and covid? What from the U. K. What did we learn there? Some 99. 0.995% of the 470,000 Children in England. Infected survived. I mean, that's an incredible survival rate. The delta bearing isn't making kids any sicker, Is it? Have any evidence that is doing sure you're going to say there's no evidence we have no evidence of that because it's the truth. And so why would the CDC say to the 70 million schoolchildren in America, where is the evidence to justify masking Children in schools due to the delta variant? According to Rochelle, Walensky, Guess what? It doesn't exist. Now say that I just let that marinate a bit. The director of the C. D. C has highly recommended. That every school child in America be masked. Even though generally speaking, We know mass don't work, and my source for that is Dr Anthony Fauci. And then Secondly, we know they don't work. So why in the world where the CDC highly recommend that every school district now has to have mass Children? So we now know the real intent is not the health of the child. It was the health of the child. There'll be no masking because in the last year The evidence has indicated that Children are not at risk, especially the Delta variant, according to CNN's John Berman, not at risk. The real reason this is going on right now, or the teachers unions bought and paid for. They have bought and paid for this administration. So the teachers unions Want more money through the cares act and they don't want to work. They don't want to go to work. And so when there's an outbreak in the school, it'll be remote learning once again. And that's the way that's going to go. They won't work and get paid and get all their in service time. The teachers largest union will continue to push for face mask to be worn in schools. Saying it is now safer, fully vaccinated people to take their mask off an indoor settings, but that all changed. The teachers unions have bought and paid for the policies of the Biden administration. As a consequence, what they want or for the Children to be masked as a symbol of government, power and control of the most precious things we have, which is the next generation of great Americans. If these vaccines are as effective as they're telling us, they are And we're now being told that masking will not work by Dr Anthony found you. We're now being told My doctor Rochelle Walensky. They have no evidence that this helps at all. The survival rate is above 99.995%. And the subject matter is 470,000 Children in Great Britain. It's all about paying off the teachers unions getting them money and pay raises and service time. Not about the Children. Doctor Wolinski just told you that. Continue. Now we have JD And, uh, In Las Vegas and Jim and Florida, many others and JD in Las Vegas. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham Show and J D. How are you? Well, great Billy. Thanks for the time..

But we need everyone across the country to have the conversation with someone they know who is unvaccinated. She noted.

Jan Hatzius is chief economist at Goldman Sachs, he says people still aren't back in office is the office occupancy rate in the United States? It's still only 30% of the pre pandemic level.

I'm Charlie Palette. This is Bloomberg. I'm Barry results. You're listening to Masters in business on Bloomberg Radio. My extra special guest this week is Doctor Charity Dean. She previously was the public health director for the Santa Barbara County Department of Public Health, as well as The assistant director of the California Department of Public Health, and has been called by no less than Mike Lewis. One of the few people saw the real danger of the coronavirus long before the rest of The country did, and he made her one of the lead characters in his most recent booked The Premonition a pandemic story, so let's talk a little bit about your new venture. The public Health company. The mission is to protect business and communities from infectious disease. That's quite that's quite an aggressive mission, isn't it? Absolutely. And what inspired me. Leading the Covid response with amazing humans in California was that the private sector was experiencing what I had experienced as local health officer and his state health officer, and that is No one's coming to save you when there is a disease outbreak. You have limited intelligence. Sketchy information from scattered sources, but you have to make an operational plan. And not making a decision is a decision. In other words, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't and you've gotta pick And I was amazed how the private sector businesses ran to the fight. They wanted to do everything they could to help, but they did not have the tools. They didn't have a public health department inside of them. Some of them had duct taped one together. And we're really left having transferred the risk management of infectious disease to local and state government who were overwhelmed by the pandemic. And so By mayor June of 2020. I couldn't stand it anymore. I knew what needed to happen. I knew that Silicon Valley technology could revolutionize infectious disease risk management. And that the tools the way that I thought about risk and the differential diagnosis and the operational, But all of that could be revolutionised by tech. And why weren't we putting that into scalable software? And honestly, there was nothing else I could do with my life, You know, by by July august than to launch that effort, and so really our mission at the public health company is we are building those solutions in technology to democratize access to risk management of infectious disease so that Private sector businesses globally distributed enterprises that deal with infectious disease all the time that they have that kind of expertise at their fingertips. So how is this setup? Is this going to be Like a dot org or and a philanthropic organization. Are you setting it up like consulting firm? Or do you want this to become a scalable technology, an app that people can buy and used to manage their own, um, prevention of infectious diseases. We are developing software, and as I looked at the very early applications we have developed. I got really excited because It had to do with genomic variants and how the virus mutates and it's a concept called genomic Epidemiology, or I affectionately also call it genomic weather mapping. You know how you can look at a weather map and you can see the weather forecast and what's coming by region. So we can actually do that for variants of the virus and say How is the delta variant different from the alpha variant? And what does that mean for the state of Georgia or for a specific county? We can predict, you know, in a time stamped way, the likelihood that cases are going to go up or down and not just for covid. But these are the kinds of models that every local disease controller has to do in their head. Figuring out what's the direction of the men in Chicago outbreak, For example, Michael Lewis tells that story in the book. So math and microbiology really is very simple Data science modelling, codifying that into software and giving disease forecasting and then the answer to the question. What do I do now? Based on it, handing out to someone in a way that is simple, accessible at their fingertips. Is an incredible need, and it doesn't exist and it's for the private sector is for the public sectors for healthcare systems. We are creating something new, not just with the technology platform, but a new sector of someone that you can pick up the phone and call When when there is an infectious disease threat. So what's the company gonna look like in terms of a product? Will I be able to get an app on my phone and get alerts said. Hey, the region where you are, is now showing an optic of infections and.

We're gonna talk about people who are not vaccinated and your push to get them vaccinated but first off just out of the gate just to ask you a couple of things the the the new variant. We're vaccinated so those of us who are vaccinated. What do we need to be thinking about. What this new variant well. It's the first thing to now. Is we worrying about variants because they they demonstrate that the viruses mutated and when we the viruses mutated it usually does so with some advantage to the virus so this time the delta variant that everybody's been hearing about that advantages that it's more transmissible and so we know now that about fifty seven percent of all virus here in the united states is the delta variant. But the good news. Is that our vaccines work against it. And so the really important thing to know is that if you are not vaccinated on your at higher risk of getting the delta variant and you need to put on your mask and you need to do all this prevention measures we've been talking about for over a year now but if you are vaccinated. You're well protected even against the delta variant. Now what we worry about with hearings in general is that they will continue to emerge as more and more virus circulates and that one day they might emerge to evade our vaccines. And that's of course the biggest concern which is why we want to suppress virus all over the place so the evolution of a variant is something. That's going to be in our near future for sure that i worry indeed here in the united states and around the world and what about this fall. Are you concerned about what's going to happen this fall.

"One of the alleged rioters who stormed the capital in january has an interesting legal defense. Apparently he was suffering from what they call. Faulk saidas yes. His attorney claims he was basically brainwashed from watching too much fox news. You know if that's what you wanna do. Why would you blame the messenger. Can you blame the media for a crime sunny. You know this is like an old story. Change the channel right. Just change it as these. The might be the same. Drank some Who who ingested detergent fluid or whatever. It was bleach and he said drink bleach drank. The bleach is is a trump's fought so his oh there's i wonder go ahead. Yeah that's a pretty interesting argument coming from. I think generally a group of people who about personal freedoms plus personal responsibility right freedom of choice and so if you wanna have those freedoms then you're also you also have the consequences that come with those choices. I don't think that that legal defense would ever. I'm withstand legal scrutiny. But i will say this. What is very interesting. Is that fox news. Now at this point should be on notice that what they are doing in terms of their campaign of misinformation is really harmful to their viewers. They're very loyal viewers to this country at this point. My understanding is that it's already facing to defamation lawsuits right one to multibillion dollar lawsuits i might say. From voting technology companies. Smart matic and dominion voting systems over defamation for their airing a false claims re relating to their technologies. And i think what's also what some viewers need to understand. Is that a federal judge in september last year dismissed a defamation case against tucker carlson ruling that tucker carlson is not a credible source of news and that it is not stating actual facts about the topics he discusses instead engaging an exaggeration and non literal commentary and that anyone that's listening to him should be listening to him with an appropriate amount of skept skepticism about the statements that he makes and so getting putting that into consideration. No no no judge is going to listen to that argument. That's that's ride okay. So you're still a republican. I understand and tell me how is fox news hurting your party or healthiness. Lavar think it's hurting the party. I think it's hurting the country. I think it's hurting democracy. I think it's hurting journalism And we've seen the results of it We've seen what's happening with vaccinations and the headset hesitancy. Among some republicans. It has a lot to do what they are hearing from. Phone use You know the insurrection on january six the spreading of the big lie. It has a lot to do with what's being heard at four news. It's incredible you really can't underestimate the effect of this the other day i had this lady come up to me. Who literally looked like she was the last survivor. From the mayflower. Asking me about joe biden being told and having dementia because they hear that over and over and over again from fox news. Look what we are seeing. Play out in congress right now what. We are seeing play out with liz. There have been republicans who've come on this show who've come on every network who've said it all over the place screened from every hill people like tear step. My people like amanda carpenter. I lot of former congress people who have said. This is not about principles. This is not about being republican enough or not being republican enough. It's not about ideology it's not about conviction it's about truth or lies it's about right or wrong. It one. Purity test is a cultist purity test. Do you follow and are beholden to trump or are you not. That is the only test at fox puts up. That's the only test that the republican house puts up and it's frankly disgusting and it is destructive to everything democracy the country the party and brain cells and i think that they also seem to be telling people that the vaccine is dangerous. Even though millions of people have been vaccinated. I just found out yesterday that there are people in my family. My family who are not getting the vaccine. Because they're worried. One of them has said that she wants to get pregnant and she's afraid that it will harm her pregnant safe. Where did she come up with that. She must have heard it on fox because you never hear any legit station. So they're very very dangerous in terms of this vaccine. What will never hit herd immunity if he keep listening to these people over there. Am i right or wrong. I'm right okay sarah. Have you seen anyone afflicted with fox sinus now. This is a virus. That's been around for a while and we should definitely be working on a vaccine but all joking aside. I do think that fox is is not to blame. When you're talking about an alleged insurrectionist that took individual as sunny reference. That's a problem. But i do have some sympathy for fox news watchers. Because there's a certain amount of people that watch in good faith and they happen to have chosen fox to trust and people on tv. With great power comes great responsibility. I grew up at a time when you you tuned into the nightly news in those people you could trust them and although there is rampant distrust right now or mistrust in the media there are a lot of people that still tune in and when they see someone on tv talking they think well they're telling me something and they believe them. So the people. I hold the in the highest standard on those people that knowingly betray the facts intellectually dishonest people that look at these viewers and guide them into the dark for a paycheck and everyone. I know that's been anywhere near fox that has worked there. That knows people there. I always said i could forgive these fox people a little if they truly believe in what they're saying and those are their convictions. I have no forgiveness for people that are are doing otherwise and every single person. I've asked said they absolutely know what they're doing is wrong and they choose to do it. And and you know what we can lay the blame right at the door of rupert murdoch and luckily murdoch who pay these people. These enormous amounts of money and make it very hard for them to say no to the lies. Now i just think people should make a living but not if you really have to set your soul to the devil and put out false and dangerous information which is what the basically join for a pay as you say for a paycheck and it's a big one. Believe me. I've seen the information. We'll be right back..

Good morning and welcome to the view. Happy friday everybody. So meghan just had our second vaccination and she's not doing great with that so she took off today. That happens sometimes. It just means it's working right ladies. That doesn't mean anything bad. So trump's lie about election fraud is the dividing line in the gop right now. Republicans like lindsey graham and least phonic of fully embracing the big lion. Yesterday florida governor rhonda santa's signed a new law packed with voter restrictions. All based on foltz and deep deep bunked accusations of election. Fraud so anna. You're in florida. Why i don't understand it. Why would the santa's hitch his wagon to a loser or any of them hitching their wagon to this guy. He lost the house. The senate and the president say what makes them think that he is going to help them in the future when he has already lost everything for them but in this case. Donald trump won florida. Donald trump lives in florida. All his children have moved here like every other new yorker it seems he before before competing in general you have to compete in a republican primary and donald trump can make or break a republican primary election. Because they've given him so much power. But i don't understand that either because look. There's all these republican legislators passing election reform laws that are that meant to make absentee balloting mail by a vote by mail more difficult in florida. That was not broken. In fact rhonda santa's boasted about how well our elections went this past election cycle. And it's also i think going to backfire on republicans. I'm old enough to remember when republicans would win absentee ballots in florida by wide margin. It was an advantage. They had a playing field advantage. My husband and who was chaired the republican party of florida and jeb. Bush spent so much time putting together an infrastructure and working on getting the boots on the ground to be able to get this advantage and so absentee ballots became a problem. Voting by mail became a problem when donald trump started trash talking. It what. I what i really resent as a floridian is that there was actual election fraud. In florida there were spoiler. Candidate's fraud candidate straw candidates that were basically recruited and given money to run to confuse voters. That was not addressed in the voting reform. The fake election fraud that did not exist. That was address. The really fraud that did happen. And there's people that have been arrested for that did not get addressed and that a damn shame right. That is so sarah. What do you think is up to two. Santa's is out a write about what she says about it absolutely on the heels of a lost election. We're watching in republican run states scrambling to to change the rules.
