I'm sure you know it by heart. Eight hundreds. 2822882. If you want to join us and talk about your long weekends, you saw this tweet from Kamala Harris's account that Memorial Day. To her is is a picture of her smiling With a filtered backgrounds. And enjoy your long weekend and from Joe Biden. At least, Biden spoke some words from a teleprompter about Memorial Day. Biden streets. Stay cool everyone as he looks, ice cream. He loves ice cream, and he's licking ice cream and looking at a 12 year old girl. I don't know if he had anything to say about her braids or Bretz in her hair, or you know that she looks 19 when she crosses her legs, which is another thing, Biden recently said. My wife had an observation. About both of those tweets. I think it's like fits into what's going on in the the flipping of American society. You have a Democrat party? Which is championing defunding the police. Which is championing the idea that's all white people are racist to be taught into the heads of school kids. You have a Democrat party that's for over a year released the felons locked up the business owners. Why would this not be on purpose? Why would this not be? Continuing effort to separate people from the heritage of this country. The heritage in this case being people who gave their lives for this country. Who died for their brothers and sisters in this country. We'll talk later in the program about this, but there are there's there's a whole generation of people. We're confused about whether we should have fought the Nazis. Reminder. The Democrat Parties. Street soldiers, Black lives matter incorporated An antifa to domestic terror groups teach kids these days that they are fighting literal Nazis when they attempt to murder police officers in Los Angeles and Seattle and Portland. Fighting literal Nazis, but they're confused about should we thought World War two So why would this not be on purpose? Why would this not be a continuing effort to decline respect for the military for respect for what America has done? There's these templates and you can observe them. You know, and I'm bet we'll hear from military people today. I'd love to have that happen Friday. We heard from a lot of folks for military understanding at Memorial Days about the folks who didn't get to come back because they gave their lives lost their lives in pursuit, the defending American freedom and families and and our ability to function as free human beings. So, but we'll hear from people in that today as well. But there's these templates. No longer exposed myself to the Mockingbird media except for shop. So when I do encounter Mockingbird Media members for show prep the patterns just man. They just stand out. And one of the patterns is this template now that the GOP wants to restrict voting. I saw this in rotors pieces and 80 pieces in that leaks into local television pieces, and they want to just restrict voting words. The Democrats. They just want to be fair and nice and just welcome everybody, but there's no cheating on their side. There's there's nothing that ferries on their side and this, of course related to Texas and governor Abbott now threatening to defund the state Legislature there because the Democrats walked out rather than to vote against a bill that simply puts some regulations around elections. Lot of people like me still question the 2020 election because of the rule changes because of the insanity of five states saying, Yeah, we're going to take a break at 4 30 in the morning. Oh, look, Biden won That's weird at 4 30 in the morning. So we'll talk about that in the show and some of Russia's comments on that, of course. There's also this And we will delve deeply into this with Russia's thoughts. That all of a sudden The Wuhan virus appears to have come from a lab all of a sudden. What's so remarkable about this is there was a brilliant documentary of the epic Times did months. If that, even I think it was weeks into the Wuhan flu and the lockdowns, etcetera. Yeah, I'm gonna call it the Wuhan flu again just this week. These are the documentary detailing all of the evidence for this thing having leaked from that lap. The Chinese military, for instance, taking over the lab, etcetera the biological reasons that this appears to be human constructed. They went through that that all of The New York Times. Maggie Haberman says It's Trump's fault that she Maggie Haberman believe the Chinese Communist Party about the origins of the Wuhan flu. CNN's John Berman asked her We've come a long way from people dismissing this is conspiracy theory to a lot of people taking this seriously. I do think it's important to remember that part of the issue when this was first being reported on and discussed back a few months after the pandemic had begun was that then President Trump and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, both suggested they had seen evidence that this was formed in a lab and they also suggested it was not released on purpose. But they refused to release the evidence showing what it was. And so because of that, that made this instantly political. I think that it was, you know, example, 1000 when the Trump administration learned that when you have burned your own credibility over and over again, people are not immediately going to believe you, especially in an election year. However, that does not mean it's not worth discussing. There has been a sort of persistent, albeit relatively quiet. Focus on whether that was the origin of the virus. And it is compounded by the fact that there are have not been clear answers from Chinese officials about it and that investigators trying to find out the origin have been stymied. So I do think we're in a different period of this, John, But I also think it's important to remember because I think it's getting reframed in a way. That's just not true to what happened. I don't mean here. I mean, this broader debate by Trump supporters about what happened when this was originally raised, So the Trump people not violating national security and sharing intelligence with the world means that they didn't believe them when you could have believed the epic times, But the new Documentary, misinformation and disinformation. So there's nothing new here for people who have actually tracked the scientific reality of this virus, just like there's nothing new. All of us have known who have been on team reality in regards to the covid flu that Tony Fauci backed gain of function research. You know? Fox has the story, Fauci said knowledge from from controversial pathogen experiments outweigh the risk of possible pandemic. What he means is the gain of function research he wants. Incidentally, Fauci is apparently writing a book about his life philosophy philosophy. Well, a lot of people are fans of a short term con, but my philosophy throughout life has been the longer the grift, the greater the game. So in my book, I really talk about how to go through the long, Griff because, remember a good corners..

I'm totally vaccinated by wife totally vaccinated we. We we personally feel safe in. We're getting better with going out into the world But that's there's so many other factors with dragon con. We have to decide. Is it worth the expense to have. What will likely be a watered-down experience right right with precautions and everything and Likely people fewer things happening. Is it going to be worth it. And for that particular example we decided. Now i don't think it is It's a lot of travel. We're going to be flying to the east coast. We're in seattle will be finding east coast family next month a mess going to be a long trip. Flying is always a pain or probably not gonna go to drink however silicon over here on the west coast. That's only two days not five and it's something that i'm going to work for. That makes more sense to me again. I feel safe. I feel protected all vaccinated But that's much less of a commitment is just to be mean the brit and it's work. I'm going to be focusing on. What i'm doing for work probably won't be socializing whole lot You kidding me beers. Oh i mean bill right. Yes way of built saying like. I'm not going to hang out with guys when i say a couple of weeks. I'm contrasting hanging out at silicon yup with hanging out at dragon con different media So yeah that's kind of where we land right now. We've been making decisions about things like this kind of on a week by week basis. We'll see how feel like when Emerald city rolls around here in seattle. That's in december.

"Stay connected. Stay informed The news you need now on CO Moh news 1000 FM 97 7 Good afternoon. It is one or two under sunny skies and downtown Seattle. I'm Kelly Blair with the top local stories from the Coma. 24 7 News Center Memorial Day weekend typically brings big crowds of visitors to the Emerald City. But last year because of the pandemic, Seattle was a ghost town during the holiday weekend. Co. Mohs is an Francaise this year. It's a different story. What a difference a year makes. Last year. At this time, our hotels were empty and our tourist attractions like the space needle they were empty to this year. The crowds are back right now. Thousands of people visit Seattle's waterfront every day, and you can bet I'll be packed this weekend. Place market is also seen bigger crowds than before visitors from around the region as well as from out of town. Now, during the pandemic business around town and at tourists, hot spots came to a grinding halt last year because of code 19 restrictions. Hotel saw 10 to 15% occupancy during Memorial Day weekend They're usually seeing 80 to 90% full during that particular holiday weekend. But now Things look like they're on the upswing. And here's the general manager of Travelodge by the space Needle were actually sold out through the weekend, even without Folklife Center, and it seems like Seattle's getting back to normal at least a little bit. That was Chris Tutor would travel lodge. Ah Couple protests are scheduled today in Seattle and memory of George Floyd, killed by Minneapolis police last May. A rally in March is scheduled for Two o'clock at Accidental square, and at three A justice for George Floyd rally will be held at Westlake Park. The rallies hope to continue the fight for Social justice. All the traveling people are doing this Memorial Day weekend has one local expert worried about what that will do when they get their doctor Alley? Mark Dad with U Dub Medicine says there are simply too many people out there who aren't vaccinated or are still at risk for Cove. It was Memorial Day and the travel people arrived on the location, and they're willing to sit down without a mask with people who are not even vaccinated friends. They know what they trust. That could be a recipe for disaster. Mark. Dad says the pool of those susceptible is a lot lower because the vaccine so he's not worried about the holiday, triggering another summer surge. But he says there are variants out there, including the India variant. Give you a good reason to be careful. Public health Seattle in King County want to remind everyone that it has several community vaccinations Sites open this weekend. Today and tomorrow.

I assure you that he is very much an entrepreneur, and I think we need more of that. Not less. Do you want to talk about another story? Another development and by the way, if if it sounds as though I'm complaining about something here, Rest assured, I am not. The FBI has announced that they're closing in on 500 arrests. Stemming from the deadly riot of the U. S Capitol in January. Sex. We all know about that, and I think that's good news. That was abominable thing that people did. It was uncalled for. It was inappropriate is not the right way to express yourself. One law enforcement official told NBC News and I quote we're not done in rounding up the worst of the worst. We're not slowing down. The FBI still has hundreds of pictures posted on their Web site of people They're looking for associating with that day. According to data compiled by George Washington University. The overwhelming majority of those arrested our men with an average age of 39 years. I don't know. Do you read into that? What you think is best and again. I think it's entirely appropriate. I want to see justice brought To those who behaved in that fashion. A couple of things happen. The details on that, by the way, First of all, Brian second, the Capitol police officer that the diet of day or two after that stab in scientifically determine that he did not die from that exposure was not a death at the hands of another. Regrettably, it seems to be a good young man. Relatively young man died. He had a stroke. Was it something that Is that a medical result of the agitated environment there? I don't know, but it has not been been medically determined to be the case. Um, so it's just as an aside on the whole thing I again I enthusiastically support the effort to bring justice there, but I do think it's worthy of note. That this this'd expresses an element of Of disparity. Because you had urban centers all over this country last summer. That we're experiencing horrific outcomes. You had business is burned and looted. You had you had people assaulted in battered on the street. You had homicides committed. In protests in demonstrations that have become riots that have become hotbeds of criminal activity not unlike what took place at the Capitol in January six, although with frankly far more egregious. Behaviors displayed and far worse consequences. There is something special about the People's House, the center of America's government. I get that, but there's also something very, very special about somebody's private property. Business that somebody owns on the streets of Minneapolis. Portland, Chicago, New York City, Sacramento, California, Oakland, California places all over the country that experience that kind of of unrest. Of criminal activity. You had the city of Seattle that had a zone in which the government resource is the local government resources were not allowed to be. We have not seen anything close to this order of magnitude in terms of consequences brought to bear in those cases. The city of Chicago has now exceeded 1000 shootings. So far this calendar year and where are we? We're just just just breaking into May So the again I do not object for a moment to enthusiastically vigorously and relentlessly prosecuting those people who engaged in criminal activity on the cat Capitol grounds on January 6th or anytime for that matter. It should not be tolerated. I am in lockstep agreement with that. But why? Why do we not have people held to the same account? When it comes to local communities being disrupted. And F ast We've been discussing all day. It's not just the present, not just they here and now it's not just that that diner that was that was burnt to the ground, that retail store that was looted and vandalized and burnt to the ground. But it's the consequences of that. What is that done to these communities? In what with long term consequences of that be, what does it feel like now to be in some of these jurisdictions that have been so profoundly negative, negatively impacted by crime and violence on their straits? Places that people should have absolute comfort to go. Think about the you're in your life. We know we've known for years that there's some neighborhoods in which a person needs to be careful. You need to look over your shoulder. The vast majority of neighbors and medium towns across the country and the urban centers. And when I say urban centers, I'm not talking about the New York Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston I'm talking about Sometimes small town Yusa communities of 50 60 80 100,000 people Where is there is just a very It has been historically a very comfortable place for people to come together. For the purpose of engaging in Congress. Now, a whole lot of things have happened in recent years. Recent decades where the retail stores the department stores remember those? Yeah, they're not the places they're not the hub any longer. It's not where people come predictably visit every fall to get the kids school clothes. Those days are long gone. People are making those purchases. Elektronik Lee, and there's obviously is progress. There's efficiency that comes from that. But there also is a little bit lost in terms of the fiber of a community. But now you take this to a whole new level. When you have a legitimate reason for people to fear for their safety. If they have to have occasion or temptation. To go visit certain places. I've spent quite a lot of time in the city of Seattle. And while I'm not a big fan of the damp weather, I will say it's one of the most beautiful cities anywhere. It has been. Those days are long gone, and it's not just what took place over the course of last summer in the so called chop zone. I mean, there's been deterioration there for some time. In fact, there's a video that I think most people have heard of. Many have seen. Called Seattle is dying that very, very well illustrates the I hate to overstate it, but the demise to a great extent. Of they certainly the quality the pleasantness the beauty that was Seattle. I mean, it was a place where the world's fair was held. That's the that's the space needle, and it assisted in such an incredible view of Mount Whitney and Puget Sound and all that's around that beautiful Emerald City. Bob has been compromised now. So who wants to do business who wants to meet in downtown Seattle? I think those days are long gone so suburban communities air getting more popular, But there's even been some assaults on some of the suburban communities. And where are they? Where's the log? Where's the Where's the list of people? Organizations who have engaged in criminal enterprise when you have two or more people coming together for the purpose of engaging in criminal conduct. You're right there where you have the potential for a criminal conspiracy prosecution. That's not happening for whatever reason. So why is it that the capital the U. S capitol? I do understand the this significance that the very, very special place that that building that that all that emanates from that building holds in our society, and I respect that. But why does that take on greater import? Then it then a family business that has been function in a community for generations, In some cases, or somebody who's maybe relatively recently put everything they had. Into a business to make it work and to serve the community, a kind of a gathering place. The place that the kind of tends to unite people and as it's interesting, because as I look at What we're losing through this period of time when we've had the consequences of isolation and separation. We have this other phenomenon in terms of the excuse me the manner in which we communicate with one another overwhelmingly being Elektronik. And even in course, says, I educate in terms of how people make purchases and acquire goods. You're not. You may have a occasion to greet the Amazon delivery guy, the UPS driver when they when they dropped off the package at your door, but it's not like it used to be when when people overwhelmingly would go into a retail store. And develop a relationship with the purveyor of the merchandise on the customers, and you get to know one another and you get to know what the needs of somebody are. Those were very, very, very strong bonds that existed in communities. That's dissipating. And now you have the division. Now you have what I think is understandable. And an articulable degrees of fear. People do not want to go out. They don't want to visit these these various neighborhoods and of course, in some parts of the country, Not all some some parts of the country..

closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Take Space Needle out of Seattle’s skyline and most think we’re a certain no-nonsense Midwest city
"What would be opening a Frasier been like without the graphics synonymous with Seattle without the space needle would we have looked like Seattle the answer apparently not the survey from big brands dot com asked Americans to identify cities without their most notable landmark in other words they took the needle out of our Seattle skyline if you live around here perhaps you'd still be able to determine that a needless silhouette of Seattle was still Seattle but through the rest of the world we apparently lookalikes four major cities Seattle had the least recognizable skyline and most respondents said we look more like the windy city then the Emerald City to add insult to injury the silhouette of Chicago without the former Sears tower was still identified as Chicago fortunately the space needle he is still there and as the evidence now more than ever clearly suggests the landmark is the signature of our skyline which is a good thing because we can't always count on the blue sky

Amazon Makes HQ2 Decision, Snubs Pittsburgh
"We're going to go back to the Amazon H Q two palooza here for a minute. And talk about one of the cities that didn't make it to the big dance. You know, one of the cities that spent all that money and all those hours gathering all that data to put together a pitch that as we learned today officially went nowhere or did it from W E essay in Pittsburgh, one of Amazon's top twenty by the way, but not one of its top to marketplace's Eric embarrassed takes a look at what might be the real payoff. Am with Pittsburgh city councilwoman, Deborah grows. Then we're driving through what's known as robotics row. Apple. Facebook. An Uber are just a few of the big names in this fifteen block stretch close to downtown Pittsburgh. There's probably not a place where this many technology innovators in competition with each other our next door. Neighbors all those companies have taken up residents in the past decade or so transforming empty warehouses into offices in laps. The city didn't have to do much to court them. They came to take advantage of the area's highly skilled labor force. And bro says not much improved since the company's showed up. There's not even sidewalk space. So there's no pedestrian infrastructure. There's no safety infrastructure. There were no street lights Amazon has an office here too. But when the company announced it was looking for a second headquarters, Pittsburgh realized it was going to take a lot to learn Amazon a second time so more than four hundred people from government business in higher Ed along with a team of highly paid consultants studied every aspect of the region to prepare the three hundred page proposal for H Q to if it takes a catalyst like that to bring people together in a room to really assess what our needs are what are social needs. Are what our infrastructure needs are and how we can do better to meet them. That's not a bad thing. What did they learn the city schools? Not that great the transportation system hard to get from here to there. And when it comes to ethnic diversity the region is lacking David Rupert. Burger with the Pittsburgh reasonable alliance. Worked on the proposal we've recognized that the odds for long, but we also recognized early on that there was going to be benefit to this regardless of whether we are selected or not, and we feel like we've already won one because Pittsburgh now has a detailed and data rich profile of itself that it can use to drive improvement and since making it onto Amazon shortlist of finalists other companies have come calling, but I would call mini Amazon's like affirm a financial tech company that said last month that will set up a big office in Pittsburgh. There was also this by connection free to Seattle. It's the real deal. Pittsburgh get from the steel city to the emerald city in just a few hours on a new nonstop flight. Pittsburgh was already in line for the flight, but Christina because it's hostess CEO at the Pittsburgh airport set. The timing looked good nonetheless and made it easier to court other airlines and flights Amazon gave us a great platform. Say see look, we're in contention for this and. And that was really that was a fantastic Colin card for us as some cities have learned. Sometimes just being a contender is enough. Let's go back to the nineties. United Airlines was looking to build a new maintenance facility that would create five thousand jobs the finalists were Indianapolis and Oklahoma City when Indianapolis one Oklahoma City pressed United to reveal why former mayor Mick cornet. So they finally disclosed that they had sent in some mid level executives and their spouses and ask them to spend a weekend in Oklahoma City and report back to the board of directors and Chicago. And when the board looked at that report, they just decided they couldn't imagine their employees living there. It was hard to hear. But it spurred the city to improve its downtown and outdoor space with hotels and restaurants and bring in sports teams, and those changes attracted new companies cornet says the United facility was the best thing that that didn't happen years from now some cities maybe saying. The same thing about Amazon H Q, two infants Berg. I'm Eric embarrassed for marketplace.
