"Death continue to drop way have two million fewer cases in our country today than at the end of January. Are we out of the woods? By most accounts? Not yet, but we're getting close. They spoke this week with Dr Anthony Fauci scientists, an immunologist who serves that the director of the U. S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. When will we be? Do you think will be best? A danger point in the viruses ability to go very bad for very many people. Great question you and that's the reason why we often say a global pandemic. Requires a global response because even if we and I believe we will within a quite a reasonable period of time, suppress Virus in this country and in places in the developed world. The European Union, Canada, Australia, etcetera, where there's the resource is to vaccinate essentially The entire population. Then you could get good suppression and feel comfortable, however, as long as there's virus, replicating in a robust way anywhere in the world. Is always the danger that mutants and variance will evolve and ultimately get back to whatever countries successfully suppressed it. So that's the reason why You're hearing a lot about a global effort to suppress this because we've got to suppress it. Throughout the entire world, because if you're doing fine in this country, and then there were regions of the world where there's outbreaks, the virus is going to continue to mutate and ultimately because of the extraordinary Extensive travel we have throughout the world. It's ultimately going to get back to the countries that suppressed it. So that's the reason why we should have a commitment and we do. To a number of mechanisms, including Kovacs to make sure that virtually all the countries in the world will have the capability of suppressing it. So doctor found you what happened in 1918? When it eventually went away, even though we didn't have the vaccine, but we never got a vaccine for 1918, but it eventually faded away. Even though it circulated around the world. What happened there that we can't rely on happening here? Well, The only trouble with that view is that it killed between 50 and 100 million people worldwide and in a population that was one third the size of the global population now, which means that would be equivalent. Killing between 153 100 million people. So when you just ravaged the world like that, after a while, you run at a susceptible host, you get hurt immunity. And that's it and we don't want to go there. We want to stop it before it does that kind of devastation, which is the reason why the answer is the proper implementation of vaccines. So, doctor. Is it still a possibility that such a ravaging could occur? I believe it is, but I'm not a scientist. I just talked to my official toxicologist who's a relative said You can't rule it out. I don't know if it's five or 10%. But you can't rule it out. Can you rule it out? You know you that you never could rule those things out. But the likelihood of that happening is extraordinarily low, given the fact that we have multiple highly efficacious vaccines, so I mean right now, for example. You know, we've vaccinated completely about 13 or more 14% of the population and even maybe 24% and have at least one dose by the time we get into the late spring. In early summer. We're gonna have a lot more people vaccinated, So I think the likelihood of the scenario that you're pointing out who is going to be extremely unlikely. Is there any evidence that it's become any of the variants that we know of yet have become more dangerous for Children than the pre than the original or the various You know, there is a suggestion that one of them is easily infecting Children, which means you know, Children still on the whole do much, much better than adults. If you look at the rate of hospitalization for 100,000 people And you look at those charts Children away way off on the side of the chart where there's very little hospitalization, but some of the variance if they have the capability of infecting Children. More readily. You're ultimately going to see more serious disease in Children now, Doctor? I asked a few of my friends. I thought, Dr Patches coming back. What do your best questions Great question from a friend who had been part of the thousands Americans who step forward for the trials. Did them A during the trial got successfully vaccinated. He is wondering when does he have to get re vaccinated? When does his the trial people were first in line there? Six months into it. Do you have any idea yet when they've got to get a booster shot? You know? No, we don't. And that's the reason why we observe people for up to two years or even longer. Following vaccination Right now we know things look good, at least up to six months and likely much longer. But the only way you know is you've got to follow people and find out when that level of anybody falls below a certain level and people start getting infected again. So that's one of the things you only learn by observation. You Emily Oster, and economists and Brown wrote a piece in the Atlantic last week, which you probably read. Dr Fauci read everything. The science on transmission by the Vaccinated is still hazy. I received my second dose on Saturday. Can I transmit the virus? You know, whoever is that question is is it's a good question right now. We haven't ruled out completely that even though you and I'm like, you know, I'm vaccinated also about whether or not if we get exposed We could get infected and have no symptoms because we're vaccinated. And if there's enough virus in our nasal pharynx, theoretically we could infect someone else. Which is the reason why we asked people to continue to wear masks. Having said that As the weeks and months go by more and more papers air coming out, saying that the likelihood of transmitting from a vaccinated person gets lower and lower because some studies looking at the level of Iris In the nasal pharynx, and it's either absent or very, very low. I would predict, though you just got to be careful with predictions that after several more months, you We're gonna get enough data to say that the likelihood of transmitting an infection from an asymptomatic vaccinated person is extremely low. Okay, I'm wrapping up doctor because I won't take too much your time, some costs or an economic term. They are very hard for people to deal with. If your study the data have you lead any conclusion on lockdown because we have some states like California that went in hard for lockdowns. They're not doing any better. Indeed, they might be doing worse than Florida, which did not go in for lockdowns at all. So the sun costs on lockdown under enormous and prevent people from dealing with it objectively, but you understand some costs. Did we make mistakes on lockdown? You know you I don't think so. I think the lockdown situation is really very complicated because there have been some states that said they locked down and when you look at the actual, you know, tracking them on GPS is about how much they locked down. It isn't nearly as much as was claimed. For my entire conversation with Dr Fauci go to town all review dot com. Coming up. The media is extraordinary..

First news National correspondent bills in for Bill We got a whole lot of countries rolling out Cove it vaccines this week who's best positioned Yeah, As you might imagine. Some of the wealthier countries around the world Charlie are are the best position for this have are in the best shape As far as covert 19 vaccines go. It's go time, of course in the UK where they started administering the vaccine today, But it's interesting because you talk about the United States, the U. K the European Union Canada. Japan. All of these countries have secured contracts that put them in good shape as far as vaccines go, But the early supply of the vaccines like the Fizer vaccine, which is the first out and Moderna, which should be approved next week, those early supplies are already accounted for leaving some of the less privileged countries around the world kind of Trying toe wait for the scraps of these vaccines to come out. For instance, Look at Canada Canada has secured through contracts 300 million doses of covert 19 vaccines. They're only 37 million people in Canada, so that means they have enough to vaccinate everybody with two shots four times over s O. We have Ah, situations like this and their countries that are pretty well prepared, but others are going to be waiting for what's left over. People who are wondering, how does you know? 37 million people? They get 300 Million doses come for people who are wondering how does that happen to a country like Canada? I'm guessing because they got first in line. Well and first off. You're trying to cover all your bases here to where we now have the story in The New York Times about how the United States could have secured an additional 500 million doses of the visor vaccine early on, But, uh, you know, countries around the world made deals with different pharmaceutical firms because earlier in the year, Charlie We didn't know who was going to be first out with the vaccine. We didn't know how effective they would be. So they covered their bases on this, and that's what Canada did. Now what they're saying is that, Yeah, they have contracts for these doses. But what they're gonna do is they will donate the additional stockpile that they have to those less fortunate countries who may not be able to get ahold of vaccines. So you can't blame countries for kind of spreading things around little bit, going with different pharmaceutical firms and acquiring as much as they can appreciate the update, Man..

We've been seeing this need for American manufacturing to come back for a while now, mainly because Retail has changed, and you know it's easier to go overseas when you're producing 5 10,000 units of sound thing when you want to make 500 units of something being overseas. Just doesn't really make sense anymore with the tariff, and I mean it just stops the dollar stop working for you when we have Barney's going bankrupt when we have these big stores, not placing as large of volume and his large inventory, then all of a sudden the brands don't need to place that amount of Inventory with their factory anymore and what we're really seeing with Cove. It is this emergence of smaller, more unique brands and the amazing part of social media, where You know, people love to buy a jogger from the girl that's tied, dying out of hunger rise. So are you seeing that? I mean, instead of getting the 50 or 500,000? Yes Or you're seeing the $5000 order from this woman who wants to make a jogger or from a guy who wants to make sure it's or whatever. It's not a $5000 order. I mean, I have some clients, you know they might have 56 700,000 followers, but it's not like they just have followers. They haven't engaged following those people want to respond to inventory they wantto say. Hey, guys, vote Do you want blue or pink? You know now, everybody like the blue. We want to go ahead and make 1000 and so This need Thio not have so much inventory, I think is really going to drive American manufacturing. All right, So last thing, and then I'll let you get off the phone. How much of this do you think is permanent? Because obviously the economy is changing. We don't know what it's going to be like in six months or a year. What's your guess? I have to say I was a little disheartened by the hospital. To be completely honest. You know, at the beginning, a lot of the hospitals were like, Oh, my gosh. Like why haven't we been doing American manufacturing? It's so nice being able to develop something in our backyard and The second China came back online. That story has changed a little bit. So do I feel like, okay all in a sudden, and we're going to be making millions and millions of masks and gowns in America anymore. I don't know that that's staying, but I do feel like the fashion and clothing is definitely going to start making a big comeback to America. Marty Miller.

"Eric Harley as we move into Tuesday. Gerry? How're you doing really good? Yeah. Hanging in every got a great show today after China retaliates. What is next we'll get to that age e bar? That's the attorney general embar assigns a US attorney to look into government surveillance involving the Trump campaign best tweet. I saw that was Mollie Hemingway saying, oh, good. This will go now unobstructed because if the Democrats try to do anything to stop this investigation or even say anything about it down if they talk about it, right? That has to be viewed as obstruction of obstruction of. Justice. Former deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein goes atfer, James Komi when this when this is when this is all aired out. It is going to be fascinating to see where Rosenstein fits in all of this. Right. Yeah. It will be when when everything eventually comes out because he went after Komi really hard yesterday. Right. So we'll get to that you and I talked about this on Friday. A caller brought it up, and we'll we'll talk more about it with China. Stop buying our debt because of the trade war. You know, they somebody in their state run media came out and suggested that yesterday is we said though, that would have a couple of affects would it would it affect the United States. Yeah. Because it would raise interest rates for for treasury bills. The well, we don't have to worry about that. Because future generations will end up paying for. We'll put that on our children, our grandchildren. Really, no big deal. They're that young people. Yeah. That that's that's where we are. But but it would increase interest rates, but as we said yesterday, it's one of the safest places to put money in the world. The rate of return with the security on the China doesn't China doesn't finance the US debt. Nobody finances a US debt because they feel nice, right? They're not helping us out. Right. They're not doing it to help us out there doing it because of their own self interest as we've always talked about capitalism. That's that is what is about. So if they pull from it, it will hurt them and hurt them in a variety of ways where do they put that money? That is where it is a safe and secure. And the second point is since it raises the interest rate for treasury bills. It will lower the value of United States currency, which means in the United States. A will be you know, there will be more countries coming after into the United States in order to buy our goods and services. By the way, you said something they they don't they don't buy up our debt to help us out. They do it in their own self interest. We can apply that to trade by the way of because I think a lot of people get it wrong. They put it into this thing of, oh, we're just helping our neighbors, and our neighbors just helping us while it is beneficial. They're doing it for their benefit. We do it for our bene-. There isn't anybody in the United States that that trade with China for China's benefit, right? There is an anybody in China or Canada or John Brennan yet, you know, he plays. That's true. He might there isn't anybody around the world that trade with the United States to help out the United States. Everybody does it for their own self interest. We'll get to that more Mark Cuban addresses. Socialism says that he believes that Bernie Sanders ALCOA confused that they don't understand socialism. Right. We'll get to well. We'll play some of the audio of it was actually humorous. He said look Bernie Sanders made a million dollars on his book and a static about it. Right. So the that coming up, by the way and Bernie Sanders rally against any middle ground on the green new deal. Oh, apparently, she backed off again on the I was just kidding on the twelve years. Right, right. She was just kidding last time. And then she said it again. So so was a roar kidding about the ten years. I think Aurora is kidding about running for president. We'll have the latest polling out there. And the US believes that are ran is behind the Saudi Arabia ship attacks. You know, we understand why we're sending a carrier fleet out that way. But a really interesting day yesterday mean nothing was really unexpected. Obviously, the Chinese decided to put the tariffs, you know, announced the tariffs on our Monday morning, which of course, would have maximum effect on the stock market on Monday to start out the week, and right and it did on the stock market going down what six hundred and nine points. I believe something like that yesterday is was down as high as as seven hundred the president of again as I as as I've always said, scattered brain messages coming out of the the White House again all over the place and on it from. Mm saying see the, you know, the the tariffs will help our, you know, the terrorists actually help our economy was one of the tweets that he put out at the same time where it's well. We're not sure if we're going to put on the three hundred you know, the the twenty five percent tariffs on the three hundred billion. Why you do it immediately? This is where this is where again this where the president a again loses credibility because we'll say one thing, but his actions, you know, his actions, and what he what what he you know, what he actually says it will say one thing and then do the opposite. But the president didn't jump immediately on and say twenty five percent tariff. All right. You you put it on the sixty billion aright we're gonna put it on three hundred or three hundred billion if tariffs helped the United States. If tariffs was an economic boom to the United States, the president would maximize all tariffs with China. He'd put one hundred percent tariffs on China. Why doesn't he do that? I never right. If it's a benefit go the full measure. He would have put the. Tariffs on day one. If it's if it's solely benefited if it benefited the American economy, he would have done a day one, by the way, what actually did benefit the economy. We would be behind behind the two, right? If if gravity didn't exist, I just had a trillion dollars that'd be a trillion if grant if gravity didn't exist before flying human beings everywhere. Yes. Airplane, right? But gravity does exist. Dang. And when you increase the cost of goods and services, it never helps an economy end of story. I mean, this isn't this isn't complicated stuff, right? And let me just. Finding here. Putting on? Because this is true. And we even said, it we said look in in this particular case now, we don't believe that overall the president handled trade negotiations in the right way, especially with our friendly trade partners. And we believe that that the United States should have isolated China instead of the president isolating the United States with on, you know, with the European Union Canada, Mexico, the goal, the president should have been bringing all those trade partners together to go after the people that are really not doing the right thing. And that is the Chinese. I've got some feedback over the last couple of days. Well, those small countries European Union's not a small country. No. Candidate is our biggest trading partner Canada for only being twenty five million and Canada's part of the whole United States thing and believe me Canada has the same complaints with China that we do and so does every other country because every other country that has any form of technology, including the European Union would would back up. That's the one response that I got when I brought that up last week somebody very insistent that no other countries would stand by the United States. Will you didn't know because you didn't try right? But what you do is. You unify your friendly trading partners to go into the the the the big, you know, one of one of the biggest economic powers in the world, China that's cheating. You unite the world against them, you don't unite the world against us. And that's where the, but because I can't do anything about what happened. I can only do the only thing that we can talk about this. What's going on right now, you can't change the past? And we understand why the president is doing what he's doing with China because China is different. And if you've listened to the show, you know, we've always separated what China is doing from Canada, Mexico where we had free trade agreements on. Nobody was breaking those free trade agreements. And the fact that the president and his rhetoric that we were getting killed and up and up creating a new free trade agreement that does basically ninety eight percent of the old free trade agreement to begin with and doesn't even fulfil what he told his most loyal supporters. We brought this up yesterday. And and. Blue zero response to that. But but it is a truth from Trump supporters. The president lies to his most loyal supporters on tariffs. He says it helps them, and it doesn't it hurts. Well and began that you you're throwing down something that isn't true. And it's a promise that they believe is going to be in place. They believe he's going to fully fulfill that he's going to keep terrorists in place because it's a good thing. And he's not the deal in in fact, if you look he wrote basically an open tweet that's today's version of an open letter to president gee of China saying, look, you had a great deal, and you're going to be hurt badly by this China's going to be buried by this. Well, US is going to be hurt depending on how far this goes is also going to be hurt. When when I say he again, remember, we we went after President Obama when President Obama lied to his constituents on health care. Well, the president on trade has consistently lied to his most loyal supporters those who support them the most. If you've heard our call last week from a gentleman who called who who. His call. I am the biggest Trump supporter in the world and on there because of trade by the end of the conversation. He said, we'll Donald Trump is wrong on trade because we had to inform him that Trump promotes the fact that the free trade agreements were about what we're about leveling the the the trade deficit. None of the free trade agreement said he has put together including one with China. Does what his rhetoric is telling what he is telling his constituents and implied to his constituents because that's what he rallied about one of the reasons Trump became president was because he said he will reduce that trade deficit. It's done nothing, but gone up. No matter what the president has done. It's it has it has skyrocketed and the free trade agreements. And by the way, we agree with what he has done in the free trade agreements. We're simply say politically to the populist portion. And remember the populist portion is some of the biggest most solid support the president has and what he is telling them that he's going to, you know, equalize it is is untrue. It's not true terrorists. Don't benefit the United States that they did. He would have put them on day one. If there were no bad effect. If it didn't hurt the economy. He would have done a day one. And so that to me is the thing that that that gets to me and people may say it's an ago sheeting tactic. I don't believe it's ever negotiating tactic to lie to your most loyal supporters in politics. And again, he's still pleading with president Xi to make a deal. So you're promoting something as a positive that. You know is not going to stay in place. You're getting the action from your base that once those terrorists in place. They don't want it as negotiating tactic. They want. They if they believed Terracar good thing. And for that part of your base. That's not going to be the long game for you. And he's very open about it. He keeps promising we're going to these terrorists are good thing. We're going to we're going to put more tariffs on them at the same time these openly. Telling president gee to make a deal here. It is regarding China Americans have been giving Mr. Trump this from the Wall Street Journal the benefit of the doubt that his tariffs strategies intended as leverage to negotiate a better fair trading regime. I would agree with that. Right. I would that you would route that that the Americans are that's what we're doing. We're saying we'll on this particular case because China has done this much wrong. Yeah, we're giving the benefit out. What we're saying is we know the US economy is going to hurt. What what else is the other what other choice? Do you have the United States is going to be hurt? China's going to be hurt..

That's the one response that I got when I brought that up last week somebody very insistent that no other countries would stand by the United States. Will you didn't know because you didn't try right? But what you do is unify your friendly training partners to go against the the the the big, you know, one of one of the biggest economic powers in the world, China that's cheating. You unite the world against them, you don't unite the world against us. And that's where the, but because I can't do anything about what happened. I can only do the only thing we can talk about what's going on right now. You can't change the past. And we understand why the president is doing what he's doing with China because China is different. And if you've listened to the show, you know, we've always separated what China is doing from Canada, Mexico where we had free trade agreements on a nobody was breaking those free trade agreements. And the fact that the president and his rhetoric that we were getting killed and up and up creating a new free trade agreement that does basically ninety eight percent of the old free trade agreement to begin with and doesn't even fulfil what he told his most loyal supporters. We brought this up yesterday and. Blue zero response to that. But it, but it is the truth from Trump supporters. The president lies to his most loyal supporters on tariffs. He says it helps them, and it doesn't it hurts. Well and began that you you're throwing down something that isn't true. And it's a promise that they believe is going to be in place. They believe is going to fully fulfill that he's going to keep terrasson place because it's a good thing. And he's not the deal in in fact, if you look he wrote basically an open tweet, that's that's today's version of an open letter to president gee of China saying, look, you had a great deal, and you're going to be hurt badly by this China's going to be hurt by this. Well, US is going to be hurt depending on how far this goes is also going to be hurt while when when I say he again, remember we we went after President Obama when President Obama lied to his constituents on health care will the president on trade has consistently lied to his most loyal supporters those who support him the most. If you heard our call last week from gentleman who called who who preface. His call. I am the biggest Trump supporter in the world and on there because of trade by the end of the conversation. He said, we'll Donald Trump is wrong on trade because we had to inform him that Trump promotes the fact that the free trade agreements were about what we're about leveling the the the trade deficit. None of the free trade agreements said he has put together including the one with China. Does what his rhetoric is telling what he is telling his constituents and implying to his constituents because that's what he rallied about one of the reasons Trump became president was because he said he will reduce trade deficit. It's done nothing, but gone up. No matter what the president has done. It's it has it has skyrocketed and the free trade agreements. And by the way, we agree with what he has done in the free trade agreements were simply say politically to the populist portion. And remember the populace portion is some of the biggest most solid support the president has and what he is telling them that he's going to equalize. It is is untrue. It's not true terrorists don't benefit the United States. If they did he would have put them on day one. If there was no bad affect if it didn't hurt the economy. He would have done a day one. And so that to me is the thing that that that gets to me and people may say it's an ago sheeting tactic. I don't believe it's ever negotiating tactic to lie to your most loyal supporters in politics. And again, he's still pleading with president Xi to make a deal. So you're promoting something as a positive that. You know is not going to stay in place. And you're getting the action from your base that wants those Karasin place. They don't want it as negotiating tactic. They want. They if they believed terrace are good thing. And for that part of your base. That's not going to be the long game for you..

"One line that says Afghanistan, plus. Where the talking it's hard to make out the first time. But it's it's pretty clear that five thousand troops to Colombia is the second time. All right. So once that's out there, obviously, the narrative is the John Bolton and Donald Trump. John Bolton's got a bit of a war hawk rep province reasons, but they plan on as part of what's going on down Venezuela's sending US troops to Colombia. Even though it just says five thousand troops. That's that's the story that was that was struck and I'm sitting there, and I'm watching this. And there's there's a couple of things. Did I remember I remembered the? This strategic leaking of information, not always true. And in many cases, not but the strategic leaking of information either test the metal of an opponent from a from a diplomacy standpoint. To uncover perhaps, you know, here's rec- this where we've where we provided information to people. We thought were feeding information. So that we could watch the reaction of the people. We thought were were being fed the information. So we would know where the source of the leak was watch any espionage style film, and chances are you'll stumble across that particular narrative. But here's the deal. John Bolton holding notepad pad is five thousand troops to Colombia and holding it in a manner where it's obviously going to be picked up by the White House. Press corps for talker. I. Is the laziest version I've ever seen of this? And for those you go we'll did show lazy. Then it's got to be true, John? It's not John Bolton's first day at this not within this administration now within the government. And when he gets a setup question from one of the reporters, which he did talking about the lengths to which they're willing to go with what's going on Venezuela. And if you don't know what's going on in Venezuela. Allow me basically you had Shah says who who want to create a worker's paradise? Except that's where everyone else works and he lives in paradise. And then d'oro took up the mantle. He was his boy when Chavez kicked and Madero further ran it into the ground and people are fighting over garbage. Okay. Are we to where we need to be part of the constitution of Venezuela? Essentially allows for all practical purposes of vote of no confidence in announced into the president. So the legislature in Venezuela went through the process. And after they went through the process and ousted this, dude. The Maduro basically disbanded the power or neutered the power of the legislature illegally. And then held a mock election where Dunton it on. He was reelected. Shocking. So that's where that's where this is right now, you have an ousted an ousted leader who didn't like his ousting who decided that with the force of the military. He was just going to go at it alone. By the way, the United States coming out and recognizing the duly appointed leader of from that the from a legislative standpoint this quavo. We're not at this alone. And and I got this impression because people were writing articles about how Trump was out there. Here we go messing around in in Central America or South America again. Here we go. Which by the way is an unfair. We've messed around in Central America strategically alive. I don't deny that at all. However, what you have here is you have a you have a blank whole country that that wasn't one. It was a beautiful country. That was the model for economic prosperity in South America. In fact, they were they were. Were they remember number two or number three from an output standpoint? Finding are from a economic standpoint economic output standpoint for many years. And it just and it slowly crater to where it is. And then as as the human rights abuses and everything else going on ramped up and the taking of companies down there ramped up under shabas. You had more and more embargoes put on. Which would then ramp up more. So you can argue whether the embargo thing by the UN, not just by the US. But by a lot of countries was good idea. But that's alternately. How they got there. And so we find ourselves now where you have under the constitution. You have a process that was carried out by their legislature. And so the US along with a multitude of other countries, including by the way, the European Union. Canada. Okay. Trudeau's government, many, many, others Australia have all recognised not Madero, but this other guys the leader. And maybe even just the interim leader so that they can hold free and fair elections. But the, but the point is that's the that's the way that we went and we didn't go at it alone. So the idea that Madero is sitting there, and he is losing support in the military, especially those among the rank and file because they're not getting paid. And they're barely eaten is problematic. Which is why he wants to negotiate. So yesterday, he says he'll come out in negotiating, but he won't give power. So they don't got him where he needs where they think he needs to be right now. But there was something that John Bolton said while holding that no pad yesterday that was that was really important. There are two things because I watched this one we're willing to do whatever we need to do. And when you're simultaneously holding an a notepad that says five thousand troops to Colombia, you're sending a message as a strategic message. But not a secret message. So. This whole John Bolton screwed up and the military plans have been leaked is be s that is meant to have the have the news media reported breathlessly that message to eventually get to Madero and him to weigh his options based on the idea of US military intervention without ever having to say US military intervention on the record. It's gamesmanship people. So and it's not the first time. In fact, I could think of multiple different times we've done this. And by the way, I have no problem with that as a strategy. I would rather US leaders beyond it when when they're when they're attempting to show force or or show strength. I guess it'd be a better word the threat of force needs to be there. Bullies power. Show much of it is derived over the idea, and let's just say it's a bully from a physical standpoint is that the bully may hit you. Right. That's what that's what people are intimidated by. If you knew one hundred percent, the bully was never going to touch you're not passing over your lunch money. And I and I that sounds thuggish too. Many people from diplomacy standpoint. But the position is one. Where you have you have a humanitarian crisis was three million people have left Venezuela. And and flooded in other countries be Columbia or other nearby countries. Getting the heck out of there. And and so, you know, taking a strong stand. And by the way, the US being along with that coalition of countries, you wanna know who who's backing Madero still Iran and Russia and North Korea. Is that the basket of deplorables you want to be in? So look John Bolton's holding a clipboard because John Bolton's holding a clipboard, and you bet that things turned out for a reason for the same reason we used to do this to Khrushchev back in the nineteen fifties. And the same reason that under the Barack Obama administration and under the Bill Clinton administration. I can come up with examples one, including our policy with Yugoslavia under Clinton and everything that was going on there. Were they were leaking information that was meant to be leaked and under the Barack Obama administration. You remember the whole cables thing we added documents to that strategically added documents to that. So that they were among them because we felt that this was an opportunity to get information out there. We wanted other governments to know that we were negotiating with. But we didn't want them to know that we wanted them to know. And again, I have no problem with that. Because it's better than the leader of the free world or his spokesperson being on record threatening it until they have to. Seven.

"Drinking and by the listeners of cake. A nice sunny day for the bay area today. We'll have high temperatures this afternoon in the sixties. And it looks like the winds will be easterly this day from between five and twenty miles per hour. From NPR and WB. You are I'm Peter O'Dowd. Jeremy Hobson it's here and now and Peter here we are today on day thirty four of the government shutdown and listen to this warning from flight attendant union president Sara Nelson who spoke today at Reagan national airport in Washington, we are less safe today. Aviation unions had an emergency meeting last night to review these issues. We understand that the critical networks of layers of safety, insecurity are not in place. Because we have people furloughed who fill those roles being well on CNBC squawk box this morning host Andrew Ross Sorkin pressed commerce secretary Wilbur Ross about the hardships facing federal workers who are not receiving paychecks mister secretary their reports that there are some federal workers who are going to homeless shelters to get food. Well, a nobody are an I don't really quite understand why. Because as I mentioned before the thirty days of pay that some people will be out. There's no real reason why they shouldn't be able to get a loan against it. NPR congressional correspondent Scott detro- joins us from Capitol Hill. Hi, scott. Hey there. So we'll get to Wilbur Ross comments in a moment. But I just is there a sense of urgency on Capitol Hill today to end this shutdown as the Senate votes on two competing bills. You know, I think it's probably mind boggling for a lot of listeners, especially people who know someone or directly affected by the shutdown. But I think the answer still remains the sense of urgency is pretty marginal. I think Democrats feel very comfortable in their position of saying we are not going to negotiate until the rest of the government is reopened. I on a short-term reopening or or what and Republicans are continuing to back President Trump saying that they are going to hold out for a border wall. So you are seeing the slightest bit of movement there. These key Senate votes coming up, but it's the same general situation. It's been all along. And that's the spite the fact this is paycheck number two coming up. And despite the fact, you're hearing these dire warnings about it not being safe to fly in an airplane. Now as these votes happen this afternoon. Other key senators, you're going to be watching to see if they vote a certain way. Yeah. I think on the Senate side and going to look for the handful of Senate Republicans. Up for reelection next year in in more, moderate states or democratic leaning states, especially Cory Gardner, and Susan Collins of Colorado and Maine looks like Gardner might be voting for this democratic Bill that would reopen the government and do a short-term spending Bill for homeland security curious to see if other Republicans come along as well. What about the conversations that are happening between or not happening? I guess between the house speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump. Yeah. I think it'd be happening or not happening. We're trying to figure that out right now there had been a lot of indications that Democrats would make some sort of counter offer this week that would boil down to spending, you know, five or six billion more on on border security, but not a wall on things like, you know, port of entry security things that Democrats say they could support there were a lot of indications that was happening. But in a weekly press conference this morning, Nancy Pelosi did not confirm that she only said that Democrats are continuing to look at long-term funding bills that they will be putting forward. Anyway, she does not want to make it seem like she's negotiating with president until the government is back open. Still wants the Senate votes happen and likely fail. I think that'll be the next thing to look for do Democrats come up with some sort of formal offer. And how are those comments from Wilbur Ross going over? It sounds kind of out of touch with federal workers who we've been hearing about for weeks are having very difficult time living paycheck to paycheck without having a paycheck. Yeah, I think this has been one of the I would not say one of the more Mark rock because there there's so many remarkable aspects to this shutdown, right? But one of one of the things that has been released striking is that while Democrats have made a point to put federal workers front and center bringing pictures on the Senate floor things like that. President Trump really has not shown much sympathy or empathy for people going without pay. And you're seeing other members of the Trump administration say statements like this that are that certainly strike a lot of people the wrong way. Scott just a few seconds here. But we're learning today that the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen who backed out of plan testimony before a house committee. Eighty yesterday today is being subpoenaed by the Senate intelligence committee to testify next month. Yeah. Michael Cohen lawyer has confirmed NPR that he has received that subpoena from the Senate intelligence committee a lot of questions still including would this be a public hearing. Or would it be behind closed door hearing, and what would be the scope of the questions he's answering also expect him to testify at one point or another on the house side as well the committee. He had been scheduled to testify in front of clearly wants to hear from Michael Cohen. We will be watching Scott Tetreault NPR congressional correspondent. Thank you. Sure. Thank who is the rightful leader of Venezuela is a fundamental question that many people are asking today after one Guido declared himself, the country's leader at a rally yesterday in the capital. Why does claim was promptly backed up by the governments of the United States? The European Union Canada and several Latin American countries President Nicolas Maduro called the move a US led plot to overthrow him. And said he was cutting all diplomatic relations with the United States. Let's bring in Joshua Goodman. Andean news director for the Associated Press. He's in Caracas Joshua. Is this the beginning of a coup in a new period in Venezuela's history? There have been for many many years lots of demonstrations against the government. But what seems to really have changed in the past few weeks is the incredible amount of international pressure. That is really going to determine how this plays out Maduro has been the past pretty successful at using the military and his supporters to defeat the opposition. But right now, he's picked a fight with Donald Trump and that is for him a much riskier gamble. What's the mood like there in Caracas today? Other fears of violence. Yes, there was a lot of nervousness at the rally yesterday that I attended body opposition sometimes at these rallies, they tend to be a happier mood. But I think there was. Wasn't a sense that something chaotic could happen at any moment, stampede or whatever it is one of these gatherings. However, also say that unlike what was happening all of last year where the opposition really sat on their sat on their heels and was doing nothing there seems to be a bit of a renewed optimism among many Venezuelans that this young leader one Guido could provide some answers to the real major economic problems that they're facing tell us more about him. He's president of the national assembly of Venezuela. He's only thirty five years old. And it seems at least from our perspective here in the United States that he sort of came out of nowhere. He'd completely came out of nowhere. And it's a fascinating story. I mean at the start of the year, I would say probably ninety five percent of Venezuelans had never heard of him. He was a backbench lawmaker. He's only thirty five years old as you point out, but he was always sort of on the edges, and he rose top of his party because so many of the leaders of his party were exiled or jailed or or sort of just Marge. He was elected the president of the national assembly, and that became the post the perch from which he now has made this real frontal assault on Medeiros authority. He obviously is facing the possibility of arrest. But at the same time, you know, it could be a huge payoff. I mean, he is a guy right now who is directly challenging Maduro. And I must say that a lot of the opposition leaders. Here have come and gone are discredited in the eyes of many Venezuelans, we even hate the government. But this guy he's thirty five. He has none of the baggage that the other opposition leaders have he's only fifteen years old when Hugo Chavez came to power, and you know, that sort of youthful optimism, I it's projecting. Well, he's done a remarkable job in rallying people in a very very short time and more importantly, maybe he's kept the opposition United, and that has been a real real challenge for the opposition for many many years, they're divided by egos strategy, and what have you well Madero is not going to go easily. He has already publicly kicked out US diplomats from Venezuela. The United States says we're not gonna listen to you. We're listening to. Two one Guido. What's it gonna take to get Madero out of office? Very clearly the military will decide this. They have been unflinchingly loyal, especially a top commanders to Madeira who stacked government with top commanders and all powerful positions, including the head of the oil company. And you know, right now, I think they're probably under more pressure than they've ever been. There are people are asking them. Do you recognize nNcholas Maduro as your president? Or do you recognize one Guido as your president for now? They have shown very few instances of open disobedience there was an uprising of a small group. A few dozen national guardsmen on Sunday night into Monday. But it was quickly quelled and certainly anyone in the military who's going to stick their head out is going to take major risks. President Trump was asked yesterday if he was considering military action against Venezuela. Here's what he said considering anything, but all options are on the table. Winches options always all options are on the president also said that he would use the full weight of the US government to push for democracy. What does that mean in in Venezuela to have this support from the Trump administration? President Trump is very popular among the opposition in Venezuela. He has done more to raise the profile of what's happening here than certainly than Barack Obama. And I think it's played very well down here in Venezuela. It's sort of odd because I don't think that President Trump would necessarily be the most natural leader in Latin America, given his stance on immigration, and he tends to support strongmen. Yes. But that doesn't seem to apply in the case of nNcholas Maduro. And perhaps it's the baggage of sort of older attitudes about Latin America in the United States. We'll see again, this is the deciding factor too. I mean, Trump's support for regime change in effect is. A major driver of the opposition's strategy and organizational capacity right now, that's Goodman,.
