Why Kathy Barnette Is Unelectable
"Now Dave McCormick, I've watched the race very, very closely. I've had every candidate on except Doctor Oz who has repeatedly turned down opportunities to come on this program, which usually evidences to me that don't know what they're doing on the conservative side of the issues. But I am now concerned, Kathy Barnett is rising in the polls, and she's a nice lady. I had her on the show. She got sparkling charisma, but in the last couple of days, the Philadelphia inquirer has under her tweets and her record and I don't think it's a Christina O'Donnell situation that Todd akin situation, how much does electability matter to Pennsylvania primary voters? Well, listen, I've gotten to know Kathy on the campaign trail. And I respect and admire her personal story. But she's been tested already. She was tested a little less than two years ago when she ran for a congressional seat in Pennsylvania and she lost by 20 points. And so listen, the stakes on this are so high for the general election because it will be the biggest race in the country. We need a candidate, a Republican candidate that has credibility has been tested at a deeply vetted and assembled a resources in the team necessary to win. This is like this is going to the Super Bowl.
Al Jazeera Reporter Killed During Israeli Raid in West Bank
"Turn to that. Because I've tried to figure out who shot whom and the Palestinians are not the Palestinian authority is not cooperating with the idea. What is your assessment of the situation, doctor Oren? So last night I was talking to an Israeli journalist and I said, just watch your authority is going to say that they found a 5.56 bullet in the journalists. Now the Israeli forces use 5.56 palisades usually use 7.62 at the colossal cost bullet, but they also do have American a fours and M 16s. And I also think that the Palestinians wouldn't cooperate with an Israeli offer for a joint investigation. And they rejected it, even though the Biden administration asked Allison is to do it. They quickly closed the case. I heard this morning that they've already buried the body. And the passwords are making a calculation. Yeah, maybe the Biden administration will get a little aggravated, but the international community is going to come down hard on Israel. I was looking at the international press coverage, NBC had an item on it where they did an interview and the Israeli. They only talked about the greeting Palestinians and the implication is that we are guilty before we're judged. And

'Ultra-MAGA' Longshot Roars Into Contention in Key Senate Race
"In the United States, the Pennsylvania Senate race is front and center. David McCormick I have endorsed will be joining me next hour. The world is coming down on Kathy Barnett in the last 48 hours because she surged into third place behind Doctor Oz who is fading, David McCormick who is surging in Kathy Barnett was getting close, so Doctor Oz took out after her and his surrogates did at least, calling into question her military service, calling into question her backstory and publicizing her old tweets which are pretty viciously anti Muslim. This is I haven't reviewed this completely yet. But it seems to me probably disqualifying. She is also out there on the far edge of the election, stop the steal people, and that's not electable position either in the United States. As we're about to see in Georgia next week, when governor Kemp handily wins his primary and David perdue, you can't run as an election denier. It doesn't work. And even if you believe it's sincerely and many people do, it's death in the general people don't want to relitigate 2020. They're concerned about what do you know, inflation and drugs.
How Much Infuence Does Trump Have Left?
"So Chris Christie was on ABC yesterday. He said, Trump's influence is weighing. He pointed out the incumbent governors. He's against we're going to win. Like that wine is going to win handily. It doesn't matter. And the RGA led by Doug ducey who's no friend of Trump is out there funding a bunch of people. But Ted Budd is going to win in North Carolina and Christie got that wrong. Chris is just wrong about that. Ted Budd has got quite the significant advance over Rory. So I don't think you can say Trump's influence is waning. It's just sometimes he spends it badly. I will take a middle ground there and say that his influence is waning and he sometimes spends it better. I think that I think that if you look at a state like Georgia, it seems as if it seems as if the incumbent governor is going to win. Brian Kemp seems to be doing pretty well. I mean, listen, I actually, we don't spend a ton of time on Trump and punchbowl news, which is not our not our area of expertise, but if you look at a low books in Alabama is falling behind, Trump pads his endorsement record by endorsing candidates that either are definitely going to win or do not even have a primary opponent. He did that in Texas. Many of the people he endorsed were going to win either way. So I think that I agree with you that some of these candidates are falling flat.
What Everyone is Missing From the Doocy/Biden SOB Exchange
"So Joe Biden was doing his press conference. Peter doocy did what Jim Acosta and Caitlyn Collins did on a daily basis, which was continue to ask questions after they were dismissed. And Peter ducey's illegitimate journalist. I don't even know if Peter douche is a conservative truly. I think he's just a moderate like journalist, honestly. I have no indication whatsoever. And anyone that knows him that he's some sort of right winger. He just asks questions, he does his job. He wants to hold powerful people accountable. So he asks Joe Biden. Like, hey, how about inflation? Listen to this tape and listen carefully, we're going to play it twice. Play tape. That's a great asset. More inflation. With a stupid sound. So what people missed and what Joe Biden said there is what a stupid son of a blank. Thank goodness Joe Biden isn't Napoleon and he can just execute people at a whim. So I think Joe Biden would have just turned to some sort of French revolutionary guard and Peter doocy's family would be murdered. I'm kidding, okay? He'll just be audited instead and his home will be rated like James. O'Keeffe. Instead, but listen to what he said. Let's get the transcript of that, right? So the transcript with hilarious that made it into the it made it into The White House official record, which is hilarious. So do C says, quote, do you think inflation is a political liability before the midterms? And before Joe Biden said the thing that everyone was capitalizing on is the thing that should be on billboards everywhere, Joe Biden said, quote, no inflation is an asset. More inflation. Now maybe he was being sardonic or sarcastic. I don't think so. I think Joe Biden said something that he believes. I think Joe Biden in a off the cuff unscripted moment just told the country in his back and forth as little duel as little rivalry with Peter doocy. I like inflation. I know what it's going to do. It's going to bring the great reset in pal, you stupid son of

"Circle back. Pataki seem taken aback by peter. Ducey's question yesterday. I this is. You cannot make this up. Listen to this. Exchange has ever been to the southern border in his life. I will have to get look back in my history books and check the times. He's been to the southern been at morning and we cannot find any record of him. Visiting as president plays for instance senator or even as a concerned citizen. Why would that be. I can check and see when the last time or when he may have been. But tell me more about why you're asking because this is a president makes point when there are disasters in this country like wildfire or hurricane to go and see for himself firsthand what the needs are of the local communities so that he can have informed to make policy me do that why does he go real taxes and see what's going on well first of all peter i think. The situation at the border is the result of broken system and the president certainly relies on his experience so whether it was the work he did to address root causes as vice president his efforts when he was in the senate to support comprehensive immigration reform a steps that at a time or being done and work toward in a bipartisan way. Something that Certainly we think should be the case. Today he uses all of his experiences to inform how he governs. How approaches challenges and certainly he looks again at the last four years and the the separation of children who were ripped from the arms of their parents as a way he does not want to proceed. Gosh if they didn't have that image of parents having their children ripped from their arms. You notice they're never rip from anything other than their arms. They use the same tired talking point over and over and over and how about that. Joe biden has evidently. She said she'd get back to peter. Doocy circle back was gonna circle back. She's never circled back. She's still out in left field looking like oj looking for the real killers. She's on a search to find one time that joe biden has visited the border.

peaceful movement some members even organizing a community pool party on Friday I love this of course doctors say large gatherings like protest in the capital or foolish only increase the risk of deadly virus spreading really it's foolish doctors say let me pause right there for a second okay let me give you a story out of Oregon where if I still lived on Long Island I would say Oregon because that's that's just what they say okay story from Oregon more Oregonians died the past month that is typical in mid March and early April is according to data released by state health officials but fewer than half of the excess deaths were officially connected to the coronavirus wait what so they had a record number of deaths more than usual not record more than usual but less than half were actually connected to the virus that we're told is killing everybody how's this possible in all two hundred forty five more Oregonians died during the five weeks between March sixteenth and April nineteenth two hundred forty five more died then during the same five weeks in twenty seventeen twenty eighteen to twenty nineteen on average that's a lot of people right there an extra two to forty five during those five weeks seventy eight Oregonians died from the Chinese virus according to the state health authority official can now why does that happen why do you think that is two hundred forty five more over the five week period died compared to the past three years it's not for the Chinese virus it's because people are afraid to leave their home they're afraid to go to hospitals you're free to go to doctors offices they're not getting the check ups are not getting the treatments and they're dying yeah yeah doctors in this ABC fifteen story say it's terrible to go out and protest to get your life back Phoenix not job mayor Kate guy a go said when your doctor prescribes an antibiotic your doctor tells you to finish in about if you don't stop taking it when you feel

"Going out governor Ducey with his coronavirus briefing and our federal partners I want to begin by thanking the citizens of Arizona for their hard work they're responsible behavior we announced the stay home stay healthy stay connected order on March thirtieth and it's been an incredible couple of months in in the state of Arizona we are making some progress we want to share with you the the data that we have where we are today the information that we're looking at the guidance that we're receiving from our federal partners and and what is possible in the future you'll probably notice on the soft side not only does it say stay home stay healthy stay connected it also says return stronger and that's going to be a part of the objective and and the theme that we we talk about here so I want to begin with thanking our federal partners we get a video tele conference once or twice a week with president trump vice president pence doctor Deborah Burke's Dr Anthony Fauci secretary Mnuchin secretary aides are of course Dr Kristen general Mike weir are always on those calls part of where we are today is as a result of that federal guidance the began its fifteen days to slow the spread and then turned into thirty days to slow the spread that turned into what we have today is the guidance around the stay home stay healthy stay connected order until April thirtieth what you see in front of you here right now is the White House guidance going forward lot of verbiage on the slide this is a public document anybody that wants this document can go to opening up America again just search it on Google it will posted on AZ health dot golf and all these things will be at Arizona connected it dot org is well but what's what's important here is really the White House proposes state or regional gating criteria but I think it's the line underneath that that I want to highlight there's flexibility for states to tailor application of these criteria to whatever the local circumstances are you know my focus is not a hundred percent on the state of Arizona our circumstances are different than other states and we're gonna use this combination of symptoms cases and hospitals to make decisions going forward I really appreciate the flexibility that our federal partners you gave and in presenting this guidance forward so our approach going forward will will be faced it'll be based on up to date data and rowdiness it will mitigate the risk of resurgence we have come a long way in a short period of time as a state it's banned by no lack of sacrifice or effort from our citizens and we do not want to lose that ground as we begin to make additional decisions going forward we're gonna want to protect the most vulnerable here the federal document defines the most vulnerable and they are people that we love the most in our lives I've talked a little bit about my ninety six year old grandmother he was in Arizona and and my mom she would be mad if I gave her age I've said that before but my ninety six year old grandmother had heard a very young age they are among the most vulnerable and those are the ones that we're going to want to protect continually going forward regardless of what we're able to do with our economy and we're going to implement this on a statewide or county by county basis this is that the governor's discretion of course my preference is to do things statewide we do have the option to do things county by county is as we have the the proper information so these are guidelines that normally doctor Chris talks about but these are the guidelines that have come from the federal government these are the guidelines it'll be across all fifty states and they make a difference for all individuals so I I want to touch on them my selves first this idea just practicing good hygiene washing your hands with soap and water hand sanitizer especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces avoid touching your face who would've ever thought this would be so hard every time Dr Krista said this might face has begun to edge but avoiding that can go a long way to slowing and stopping the spread of course good personal hygiene when sneezing or coughing into a tissue or inside your elbow we talked on disinfecting things and then I strongly considering using face coverings wall in public and particularly when using mass transit secondly people who feel sick should stay home anybody that grew up in America that's my age or older this is different you used to prove your work ethic by just showing up and coming to work regardless of the circumstances that's not a good idea in the age of covered nineteen it probably wasn't a good idea before that so if you're sick stay home don't go to school I'm I'm blessed with a very hard working and talented senior staff in the governor's office who have been able to stay healthy through this entire covert nineteen dilemma we did have one very valuable individual who had a persistent cough up she made the decision to go home and it was the right decision she was able to work from home thank goodness she didn't contract cove in nineteen but that's the right decision so if you're sick stay home and it will make a big difference so let's talk about where we are today when I say we I'm talking about the state of Arizona that's the focus we're talking about public health first making sure that we're protecting our citizens yeah I know what our status is so this is a a busy sliding a new one for most of you to see for the first time what you're looking at our cobit nineteen cases by day on the far right of the slide you see we had the first case of covert.

C. recently asked staff to work cloth masks on the job you're never more than fifteen minutes away from today's top stories on Arizona's news station KTAR news coronavirus in Arizona so many older folks in Arizona and a sizeable amount of people getting their health care compliments of the government what our Medicaid and Medicare doing to help out right now just in ten days we've been able to provide payments to providers we had about twenty five thousand requests we've processed about seventy percent of these it's happened in about five days and the total on that is about thirty four billion dollars that we've managed to put into the healthcare system that's a minister of the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services Seema Verma who joins us this morning on Arizona's morning news there she was talking during the White House briefing yesterday as she is a member of the White House task force on corona virus ms vermin your time and many of our listeners have elderly parents my dad's on Medicare what is being done for Medicare recipients here in Arizona well I understand and and my parents and in laws on the Medicare program so interesting and the concern for Kerry care givers well people should know first of all that Medicare is providing coverage if somebody does get sacked cut you know in terms of copays and coinsurance testings covered treatments covered but one of the most important things we've done is powerhouse the president has directed us to make sure that our Medicare recipients can take advantage of broad based telehealth services so this way they can receive healthcare services from the safety of their homes and we're also waiting all the copays so even if they don't have corona virus or not showing any time types of that respiratory illnesses that could just be their normal medical issues they can get that Kerr from the safety of their home you know one of our top stories this morning is about how Arizona's running short on testing supplies so how do hospitals and I'm also hearing nursing homes skilled nursing homes long term care facilities they're really short on supplies how to get more one of the things that we did just last week with a call to action to local leaders we really do need to prioritize our nursing homes they are really athletic at the core of this in the recipient of the people that are living in nursing homes are particularly vulnerable there at very high risk and across the nation we seen outbreaks in nursing homes and so it's important that local leaders prioritize those nursing homes in terms of casting and in terms of supplies we're talking this morning good morning with Seema Verma who runs the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services at it as a member of the White House task force on corona virus you're in meetings with the president the vice president Dr found Jian and Berks and others what's it like in those meetings and how're as some of those tough decisions made is there a very robust discussion I don't wanna you know typified his fights but does everybody get to put their opinions out on the table good about making sure we hear from everybody I think the important thing to know is that we are making data driven decisions we start out every meeting with the discussion of what we're seeing in the data what we see is looking at you know every single community we're looking at where the virus is spreading on how communities are doing in terms of their social mitigation and you know the great news is we're actually seeing some signs and early signs of success with thirty days to slow the spread that those communities to really embrace of concepts are not seeing that type of rapid increase in the number of new cases hello who's of course a member of the administration economic adviser to the president says forty eight weeks to get us back to work here in the United States where where where do you put that well I I think that Larry is in the same meeting that I man we're all looking at the data and and and what I like about our strategy is that you have a public health strategy in terms of the social mitigation and making sure our health system is preparing supporting them as we need to but you also see a parallel strategy on the economic front we understand Americans are hurting a lot of them can't work a lot of businesses are shut down and that's why Leary and not Mnuchin secretary Mnuchin are doing a terrific job working with Congress to make sure that we get dollars so that people can put food on their table and pay the rent all right and then one more time real quickly if you don't mind for our listeners who either have elderly parents or are of an advanced age what what should they be doing if there are Medicare patients well the most important thing to remember is to follow those federal guidelines around thirty days to slow the spread it really is better if they can stay home and so for those care givers out there if you can go to the grocery store for that if you can run those errands for them and it's difficult people are at home and they need us to look in on them give them a call use Skype with them so I think everybody needs some support not only are elderly but really everybody but I think it's just important to help them adhere to those guidelines if they need medical care try tell help first all right thank you for your time this morning Seema Verma is a member of the White House task force on corona virus and the administrator of the centers for Medicare and Medicaid it is six

"Pants governor Ducey yesterday welcoming vice President Mike Pence stairs on it for a tour of the border in no Gallas. There was a recurring message yesterday. And we've been hearing this message for awhile now this crisis we're dealing with right now. It's on Congress's back to solve this. We will. Governor Ducey takes a bit more of a bipartisan tone, border security, should not be a partisan issue. I would ask congress to do its job. Whether you are a democrat or Republican, I don't think that's too much. Thank goodness. While the vice president was here yesterday told CNN that the administration is not considering bringing back family separation at the border. Of course, we all know that can change with a single tweet from the president. Right. The reason I say thank goodness is because it takes away the focus from what congress needs to be doing. And it gives them something to just get all upset about. And you know, in some cases, they should be upset about this. I just hope that somebody somewhere figures out that this really is a crisis at the border. I saw people online yesterday's, and I don't see a crisis in his people from Arizona on social media crisis. Really? It's not safe for entire families and unaccompanied children to cross the entire length of Mexico to flee the violence in Central America, by the way, when I say unaccompanied children. I mean, I I mean their parents or another relative didn't accompany them often, they are accompanied by coyotes human smugglers, those operations often run by the drug cartels. It's one of the ways that the most dangerous criminals in North America have diversified their business model, you know, they're not just providing pr-. Product to addicted Americans and carrying out kidnappings. Now, they're they're also sneaking across the border or helping I'm using my quotation marks near helping people figure out how to get to American request asylum. We need more facilities to hold entire families. And they need to be comfortable and decent facilities. We need a change in the law that allows those people to be held for longer, and we need more immigration judges. So that their cases can be heard more quickly that's slowly fair to them. And it also takes the incentive out of making that trek that dangerous trek because they won't be let go immediately with the promise to show up years later to hear what an immigration judge has to say. But if you need any more belief that this is a border crisis that is extending out into the rest of America. Listen to what's going on two and a half hours north of the border more than one hundred fifty miles.
