Rep. Jerry Nadler Calls for DOJ Review of Kyle Rittenhouse Case
"Jerry Nadler has come out and he has said that we want to have the Department of Justice have a review of the Kyle rittenhouse case. Now, it's almost hard to believe that the Department of Justice would come out and press charges against an 18 year old after he gets acquitted by a state and local jury of his peers. But I wouldn't put anything past this regime. Jerry Nadler has called for a federal review of the verdict by the U.S. Department of Justice. He said, quote, the heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice, he says. And so it's a dangerous precedent, which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice. Justice can not tolerate armed persons crossing state lines, looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment protected protests. Okay, I mean, let's just go to this statement. First of all, armed people crossing state lines. What does that have to do with anything? I know that in the state of New York crossing state lines might be like a really big deal, but in the Midwest people cross state lines all the time, Illinois Wisconsin, it's just you do it all the time. The reason is that he wants to try to provoke the federal government to try and charge Kyle. That's

"Kansas, doctor Marshall, good morning, great to have you back. Hugh, good morning to you, a beautiful day here in the capital. But we got some great things to talk about today. We do I want to talk about vaccine mandates with you because you and senator lankford and senator Rubio are leading the charge to cabin the ability of the president to impose mandate. Look, these are unconstitutional. I explained this to Andy slavitt yesterday. What is it about the limited and enumerated powers of the constitution that your colleagues across the aisle do not get? It's just inconceivable. It is absolutely unconstitutional. Absolutely. It just a violation of our God given constitutional rights. Look, I support people getting the vaccine. My parents have had it. They've had their booster. And the other in the spectrum, my grandchildren had had the virus. I don't see the benefits outweigh the risk and certainly don't know why a young healthy person doesn't have the choice to take this, especially when the federal government does not take into account natural

COINTELPRO: The Counterintelligence Program of the FBI
"COINTELPRO was a series of FBI projects that were covert and honestly illegal projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation. Aimed at surveilling infiltrating discrediting and disrupting domestic American political organizations. COINTELPRO went from 1956 to 1971. And some of their targets were the Nation of Islam was Martin Luther King Jr.'s organization, the southern pastor leadership conference or whatever the name was. And the only reason we ever learned about COINTELPRO. The only reason we were able ever able to get to the bottom of pros, operations. Was not because of some cross examination from Congress, was not because of a lawsuit. It was about something that I don't support, which was breaking and entering into a federal building. So during the famous Muhammad Ali Frazier fight, which was one of the most watched sporting events to date, on March 8th, 1971, a group of activists broke into the small two man office at the Federal Bureau of Investigation in media, Pennsylvania. They stole more than 1000 FBI documents that revealed years of systematic wiretapping, infiltration and media manipulation designed to suppress dissent. The citizens commissioned to investigate the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As the group called itself, forced its way in at night with a crowbar while much of the country was watching the Muhammad Ali Frazier fight. When agents arrived for work the next morning, they found the cabinets virtually empty virtually emptied, within a few weeks the documents began to show up, mailed anonymously in Manila envelopes with no return address newsrooms of major American newspapers. From that point forward after 1971, COINTELPRO was sunsetted and the government, the federal government's effort to wiretap an infiltrate American political organizations seemingly

The Committee to Unleash Prosperity's Phil Kerpen on the Inhumanity of America's Child Masking Policies
"Welcome back to one on one with the cofounder of the committee to unleash prosperity, Phil cur pin. Phil, you've been very, very charitable to the interpretations of certain so called health policies coming out of the federal government. Does the charitable interpretation is it plausible? Can it be extended over every aspect and I'll focus on one right now? So maybe herd immunity was they want to encourage people not to protect themselves what have you. But when it comes to children, I find it very difficult to see a charitable interpretation for anything we've seen. You've mentioned it yourself. The incredibly low figures. Of children who aren't sick with something else, the conclusion is if you look at the statistics, they're basically immune. They don't catch it or if they do, they don't even realize it, and they get over it. So kids are not vulnerable. Instead, they have to wear masks everywhere on planes in schools. I walk past this little pre-K every morning. Drives me insane. The kids are outside in the sandpit playing with bloody marks on its child abuse. And now we have the. Well, we've got the new vaccines and you can do it to 5 year olds next. This is science denial. They say conservatives in our science. But if they're basically immune, then why are we asking why are we vaccinating? Is there thusly is there a charitable interpretation for what the CDC will walensky what Fauci? What school administrators are doing? I don't really have a charitable interpretation on that. I think it's been outrageous. Look, I mean, you know, it's not zero risk for children, nothing in this world is, but it is normal. Children, it is no dangerous for children than any other respiratory virus. And so if we are going to subject children to this disruption to all of these interventions, then logically they would be permanent. There's no luck. There's no logical endpoint because they were never at any more than normal risk. And we've been much worse than this regard than the vast majority of the world. There are some other countries that mask down to age 6, which I think is outrageous. Countries like France and Italy and Spain go down to age 6. Nobody goes down to H two, except us, maybe Japan and Korea. But no one no one in the

We've gone into that many different times instead. We need to be solution-oriented. I do not like the politics of complaining. Now if you live in california. I get it. Texas is not california texas hill country. They'll secure the border. The good folks in fredericksburg texas. They won't put up with this at all. We also have to stop caring with the left and the media says about us to relevant play. Cut fifty two. But we want to show you why this camp got so big in the first place at swelled the fifteen thousand saturday morning hundreds of migrants at a time just streaming in from sudani kunia walking across the river and just illegally entering the united states without any resistance from our federal government whatsoever. They crowded on the shore and huge masses. We watched it for five six hours straight thousands coming in and eventually the only thing that stopped it was the state of texas and they literally formed kind of a wall if you will with their patrol vehicles and they stemmed the flow. They formed a wall and they stemmed the flow. Of course there's zero resistance from federal authorities. Federal authorities are under orders from the president to allow an open border society. And this really does open the question. And i've asked this question for the last couple months. And i think we're finally seeing an issue that is exposing how republicans are under prepared to deal with the actual crisis. That's happening in america. Which is how much power to the states. Actually have the federal government postures. They flex their muscles but we saw under the trump administration that the federal government backed down when sanctuary state and sanctuary city measures were passed in seattle in portland and san francisco. Los angeles what texas needs to do is create a confrontation with the federal government and the federal government will back down. Texas is the perfect place to test this out.
"federal government" Discussed on GovExec Daily
"Then go by the administration as diversity equity and inclusion as cornerstones of his administration's policies. How systemic problems lie at the heart of inequality in federal agencies need to address those problems both within and outside their organizations fifty shot is a managing director with deloitte consulting. Where she the behavioral insights practice. He's also one of the authors of a new deloitte report titled governments equity imperative path towards systemic change and currently advises the by white house about the federal government's racial equity initiatives. She goes me now to discuss the report and racial atrophy in the federal government. Welcome to the program. Hey thank you so much for the conversation. So how do you see the executive orders within this current ecosystem. What affects can they have and will they have. And how do you see going forward. I'm so i'm very very hot. By the range of executive orders the equity arena in the new administration. There were a couple on the first day of january the twentieth that looked at both regulatory impacts but also federal policies in practice later on a faceted other executive orders around customer experience et cetera. So i would say. I would describe them. As very holistic traditionally in the positive seeing the role of government as being about like its role as an employer or its rollers abaya but these executive orders taking us outside of that space into space it impacts three hundred million people which is what what is governments. Role as policymakers regulator anna market. Making rather than just a buyer in terms of advancing equity and racial justice in this country. So i'm very excited. By the breadth of view of what racial equity in the role of government in the role of government comply. We have a lot of Federal employees as most of our listeners in our audience so you know within the human capital in the workforce management framework What outcomes chan and should be pursued a by the federal government. I think there is this Outcomes that are kind of the well for the we'll let loose itself so in looking at the entire pipeline of government sevice career. Who is it that actually imagine themselves as a future government employees and so not just like who gets recruited but you know let's address poverty of expectation and communities who might not see themselves as federal workers and who have so much to add in terms of being part of the federal administration and the federal web force so the entire pipeline from those who expect to apply to apply to those who get recruited paul on promotion and progression equal wages equal rights experiences along the way so those are internal to the federal wet close in add comes. I think you know. Intensive equity and representation along the way in each stage of that pipeline that we should be tracking measuring in seeking to advance equity and equality of opportunity equality of access for but. I think there's also another dimension in here which is there's a richness that comes from a federal wet close to this diabetic is not just manifested in the experience of the federal workforce itself. It actually has a amazing impact on the policies that made the rules of made the programs that are designed by having a workforce that has many many different shared experiences rather common shed experiences that a treaty reflective of the country. We can actually design better government. We can design policies and programs and said we should also be looking at the impact in to the qualitative pants. Obey down bus Wet votes on. Just actually being able to run by the government. How how would that be measured. Even well i think you can look at for example different communities in the way they interact with public services if they'd be designed by people with a we that kind of back with a similar background to those communities they may be more empathetic. We made that better. Customer experience scores if we have reduced burdens on people who are applying for particular benefits and programs with the ease of access to entitlement programs is improved than those are all. You could be impossible parcel of a feature of having a more diverse wet force and more empathetic workforce that is able to understand the nuances of how government contracts with different communities and the services that it works with them for so it's not a direct impact and it. It's a secondary impact but it's something that is a value of a diverse workforce. The we should be. We should be championing. We've talked on this shot. The procurement process in the initiatives through that end. So how can the federal government Encourage a diversity and equity through procurement. So i think this too. It's a twofold way. So that traditionally the way that we've looked at is in terms of how much the government spends with little minority businesses. Diverse owned businesses veterans. I'd businesses trap people with disabilities on that businesses on. I think that is incredibly powerful and on an actually you could and should be expanded. But i will say think. There's a role that government complained that goes beyond that is similar to the role of government policy maker in the role of government procuring. In the way that it buys it can also be a market maker and so the way that it helps and supports. Small businesses minority businesses diabetics businesses to be able to grow whether they're in the government market based on not the small business administration has really powerful role to play in terms of building networks for small businesses building. That supply chains helping them advance. Not just in the government industry but throughout industry and supporting small businesses in diversity For small businesses in that way as well so a market maker as well as just a traditional buyer of sevices itself. You noted the obvious the obvious role of government has a policymaker a lot of that is through the regulatory process. so how does that factor in his. Well how can Defense encouraged a diversity equity inclusion Through the regulatory process. I think this is probably one of the most powerful ways in which government can impact an unachievable improve diversity equity inclusion in this country because rules and regulations impact. Everyone From the way that we access policies benefits in programs to benefit in. Who doesn't and the bud in that interacting with government places on us. And so. I think the first one the first way is actually getting better measuring the impacts of policies regulations there are other countries around the world like the uk has equity impact assessments. So every time a new law rule is considered not only does it consider the impact on businesses in the hospital in the cost benefits of that but it also considers the impacts on different communities. I think that was something that was very very welcoming not.

"Them from the lowest investment grade tier to the second lowest investment grade tier. I think people were joking that Do that will obviously their their finances. Look better but the big joe was now. They have ruined downgrade without taking him to junk the next time we go into recession so again illinois thinks the great example. They have a pension funding ratio. That's roughly funded at about thirty eight percent. Maybe it's a little bit better now. They perpetually run state deficits they have not contributed the full amount to their pension. Plan that they're required to do. And even this year. I think they're contributing over nine billion dollars to their state pension fund but it still below the actuary go requirement. Right now. things. Look pretty good. And i think there's a lot of demand and you see that the so called additional yield you get for buying lower credit declined pretty dramatically. But we're starting to look out. You know what's going to happen. In twelve months. Eighteen months or twenty four months when the environment normalizes and the states. That had problems. Come into this. They do anything to address those problems. Are they gonna look the same coming out of this and do you need to be concerned about what that looks like rather than just paying attention to what things today so today looks pretty darn good. I'm not gonna kids. You and i think it's probably going to look like that for the next twelve eighteen months. There was an article in the wall street journal today that said state local governments. I'm just reading it. Here's somebody gave it to me today. Two hundred ten billion dollars are remains unspent of the funds that they were given and they were given about five hundred billion dollars from the federal government so almost half of that is still unspent by state and local government. So they're going to continue to show pretty pretty positive results for the next year or two in the other trends e think are important. Some that i'm thinking in my head are the potential migration out of cities into other places. Live or what you would consider to be tier two three cities out of the new york. San frans- the world or potential. Even more spending coming down the pike within infrastructure bill. Anything else that you guys are considering as far as the macro piece of the pie. I mean i think from a big picture macro perspective on the big question. Everybody has what's going to happen with interest rates right now. You're seeing very elevated inflation numbers.

"You thought about the world in what we did was we very quickly went through all of the different sectors and tried to get an idea you know who are the winners and losers going to be. What's gonna look like mean. You almost had to go sector-by-sector not to get into too much detail but higher. Ed is a big issue or in our marketplace. A lot of schools shut down. They sent students home. There were giving reimbursements in of housing costs. So you have to think about okay. That's a sector. That had been. I would say under fire even pre pandemic in that. It was becoming very competitive. Last people go onto college. Just because of the demographics you had huge competition between some of these smaller schools. And how is that going to play out. What changed. I think pretty quickly is when the federal government came in the fed engage support to the market and so you saw bills passed stimulus bills pass at senate tremendous amount of money to not for profit healthcare so the healthcare sector because cova saw a lot of funds and we honor tax will team manage a lot of money for hospitals and hospital credits in what we were actually hearing from those investors is that our clients of ours with that they were getting more money from the federal government than they currently need it and so they are actually sending us money to invest temporarily for them because cova did didn't strike across the united states the same in each area beside right. New york was impacted pretty hard california. It took a lot longer midwest there was a delay it was a period where i don't wanna say there were a lot of sleepless nights. But you really had to kind of rethink your thesis. But at the same time you also had to go back on your years of experience they okay. What are sectors that have gone through this before. Airports are big issue in our marketplace. When nine eleven happened a lot of the airport shutdown traffic was shut down for a period of time. The great recession had a big impact on the airline sector but yet airports tend to carry a lot of cash. They tend to be prepared for downturns like this so we started to think more from an offensive perspective rather than just purely playing defense. We're fortunate we had a lot of quantity coming into this. Where can we invest our money in areas that people were selling indiscriminately an longer term. We had pretty good idea that those sectors would recover and could weather a sustain downturn so it was probably one of the best opportunities i think. Warren buffett is famous for saying those are the time periods when it's the hardest divide. It's probably when you should be buying but at the same time. You wanna manage risk. So i think we selectively were trying to buy names that we knew had.

Now you may sit back and ponder how those two are connected. Climate change and retirement savings. Olivia mitchell director. The pension research council here at the wharton school joins me in studio.

It's a very great pleasure to be with you. You are first person back in studio since we've been back here and it's great to see as always thanks. Louise awesome so connect the dots here with these two. Because again a lot of people would be like climate change or retirement risk. There's a connection there absolutely and it's very interesting that the gao has been asked to evaluate that connection to offer a recommendation regarding the federal thrift. Saving plan known familiar. Familiarly as the t. s. p One of the big issues. That people are worried about in pension. Land is that the typical traditional portfolios that the pensions plans have been holding may not perform well with the advent of climate change or so for example holding fossil fuel companies extraction companies hole dig companies that are involved in other kinds of Exposed to other kinds of climate change. I mean we've seen before us in just the last year and a half floods fires drought. It's almost like the the pestilence is written about in the bible And moreover it's likely that this type of result of climate change will continue in fact. The united nations had a big report. I think was issued yesterday suggesting that actually climate change is already here. It's not a question of ten twenty thirty years in the future so the issues with regard to pensions are that many people are hoping to be able to make what they're calling green investments investments. Which will Avoid in certain cases the fossil fuel companies or other types of firms. That are seen to be doing ill and select and engage with.

"Being usurped by the federal government but that's not what Congress wants. They want to know that all these Supreme Court justices will be rubberstamps to allow anything they want and they're acting as if the real threat here is that women are GonNa lose their right to an abortion, which of course, is not going to happen and even under the situation where the Supreme Court actually says that the federal government. Can't interfere with the states and that's with all. The Roe v Wade is about it's about Kansas state's in posed their own restrictions on abortion and the federal government says, no, they can't write states have the power to place limitations on abortion even that precedent was overturned the goes back to the states. So how many states are going to outlaw abortion mean most in these highly liberal states that are so worried about an overturn of Roe. V Way have nothing to worry about in their respective states. There's no way that California is going to impose these type of restrictions. In California there are very few states that would place type of restrictions that the pro-life movement is really worried about and to the extent that those states did all that would mean would be if you happen to live in one of those states, you might have to go across the border how hard is that? You know I mean it's not that difficult if you live in a state and they have all these restrictions against abortion. Okay. So the worst case scenario is you go to another state if that's what you WANNA do they're not going to ban that they're not gonNA, make it illegal for you to drive across the state line, and then when you're in another state I mean look if the drinking age. And now you know the drinking age is pretty much twenty-one everywhere. But you know if you lived in a state where the drinking age was eighteen and you went into a state where it's twenty one, you couldn't drink in fact in Puerto Rico, the drinking age is still eighteen. So anybody that lives in one of the states you can come the Puerto Rico if you're nineteen years old and you can drink. Is Legal Drinking Puerto. Rico it doesn't matter that it's illegal to drink where you live the laws that are affect our where you happen to be. So if you go to a bar in Puerto Rico and you're nineteen will then you could drink legally. So if you live in a state where there are certain restrictions on abortion and you don't want to follow those restrictions, you just go to was state that doesn't have those restrictions and then you can live with the no state laws. So this is all a red herring. Yes..

"So the Constitution provides that golden silver is money because the only thing that can be money is golden silver therefore the only. Thing the federal government coin would be golden silver. Now you might think well, does that mean they can print money? No, it doesn't because printing money was emitting bills of credit. The initial draft of the Constitution read Congress has the power to coin money and builds credit. They struck it. They had vote and I think it was ninety two and they said, no, we don't want the federal government to be able to omit bills of credit. So we didn't that power now they didn't want the states to do it either that's why Article One section ten denies specifically says that the States cannot admit bills of credit so the states can't do it. And the federal government can't do it either because the states were denied the ability to do it and the federal was not given the ability to do it. So nobody can do. So why do we have all this paper money? It's clearly unconstitutional. Now again, they had established to Federal Reserve as a private company because there's nothing in the constitution says, private banks can issue bills of credit. So the Federal Reserve was created to do what congress was legally prevented from doing, which was printing money but of course, defacto that's what he's doing because the Federal Reserve doesn't act like a private business it acts like as part of the government and so. The government is using the Federal Reserve to get around the constitution and in fact, if you look at the earlier legal tender cases and there were some supreme. Court, legal tender cases during the civil war, which was when Congress for the first time introduced paper money we didn't have any paper money until the greenback's came out during the civil war and when the civil war was over, they discontinued it. So we didn't get paper money again until the Fed reserve right in one, thousand, nine, hundred eighteen. But there were some legal challenges to the federal government issuing paper money, and of course, that paper money was actually backed by gold it wasn't Fiat. Money we have. Now it was backed by gold and redeemable in gold but still there was a constitutional challenge because that was not constitutional and win. The government argued for the constitutionality of the paper money that was issued during the war and that was backed by gold. The government doesn't point to the monetary provision. The government did not try to claim that coin money meant to print money. They didn't even try to make that claim because that's absurd. It was they actually looked to the necessary and proper clause which.

S. from China had where you've been in Wuhan province that was January twenty first ten days later I don't know just a side note what was Chucky Schumer and the Democrats doing they would send it was holding their vote on whether it'll allow further witnesses and documents in the impeachment trial and Joe Biden was calling the president's decision hysterical scene of phobia and fear mongering well I don't think in retrospect is probably the single best thing group best decision at the time helpless thousands of Americans otherwise would have contracted this virus it would have banned exponentially worse for this country and it will we can't calculate how many wives will be said but that moving forward and this will even help with the flu every year where tens of thousands of Americans die every year and that means okay may will be elbowing each other instead of shaking hands who knows but number one I think travel bans will be very quickly implemented in the future because this case it was important it was critical I think this whole public private partnership drive up testing for those that need it you know using the biggest box store companies in the country in the pharmaceutical companies and then everybody all hands on deck which is great because then you're not going to the hospital which to me a little Petri dishes and it leaves hospital space for those that really are ill and this whole idea of you know tele doctors where you can get on the phone and you could do a facetime or Skype with your doctor and maybe prevent you know thirty five forty percent of people from actually having to go to the doctor's office okay what are your symptoms let me see what your daughter's temperature let me say okay got the group let me see create a steam shower call me back in an hour let's see where we are and and you can do it all night that could be a future health care along with health care cooperatives and health savings accounts anyway senator rand Paul is with us couple things he suggested announced earlier today I think you were the first I heard that announced that Hey we want to give Americans the ability to expand out the tax deadline that happened today in the press conference good for you although I would urge Americans that are getting refunds filing yesterday are you center okay John Dr how long you been a doctor the medical daughter two years or so okay so you know a lot about medicine how bigger the how big was the issue in your mind of the travel ban and the quarantine and the drive up testing public private partnership in this idea of being able to have healthcare cooperatives that have twenty four service concierge service available for anybody to call in any hour of the day and and talk to a real doctor or healthcare professional you know I think everybody's been talking about flattening the curve not getting too many people sick all at once and overwhelming the healthcare the best way not to overwhelm it is to get to slow.

"Confused and I think that what we're gonna have to do is is figure out a better way of getting communications from the federal government you know I've been and many of us deeply concerned about the messaging that's coming from the top you know so and and I think what we're going to have to do is is figure out how we're going to manage this lack of consistent information that's come from a federal officials so you know in the mummy give me a couple of examples so we have the mayor of Seattle thing no grounds were given two fifty we have the mayor of New York single crowns bigger than five hundred we have Israel the whole country of Israel using a way lower number two to limit that the people that the size of people can the number of people who can gather in any place at any time and this is certainly more of a manic yes so what is the I mean we don't have much time but what is the right answer I mean we're getting more and more news about the corona virus and what we're trying to figure out what it is what it does who is most at risk exactly and we haven't talked about the readiness of America's hospitals to accommodate what it's going to be announced a lot of patience the next few weeks is what many of us are predicting so where we're kind of flying by the seat of our pants in a situation where we need a lot more guidance a lot more consistency from the federal government we're watching these press conferences where we're getting all kinds of opinions and not have to talk about how things are under control and it's it's a serious problem on the more serious social problems in the United States is phased in in memory that's phone Redlener he's the director of the national center of disaster preparedness at Columbia University thank you very much Iraq it's been a weekend of action at the White House they declare the Kronos virus a crisis and a major disasters signing off on a deal with house Democrats to offer sick leave unemployment aid and food assistance but also denounced a website that wasn't ready and they have been unclear about testing the president and his national political correspondent moralizing joins us now good morning Mara good morning well let's start with the government's response we heard there of them quite a bit of criticism so far we've got fifty billion dollars though freed up through this disaster declaration and the congressional package should talk about those two things well the first thing is the Stafford act that's the emergency money the president now can spend give authorize is now authorized to spend money give aid to states and local governments that's about fifty billion dollars the aid package passed by the house and supported by the president still has to be passed by the Senate gives tens of billions of dollars in aid depending on the exact number depends on how much is accessed that's in the form of new benefits to small businesses about ten days of paid sick leave during the crisis to employees of some companies for some reason it doesn't apply to companies with five hundred employees or more and that's more than half of all workers also free testing and more money from Medicare and unemployment insurance more the president said he finally did get tested for the crown of ours Friday night and the test came back negative they said that was after weeks of shaking hands coming into contact with people confirmed to be infected it seem to many to be very cavalier all he has changed his attitude at first he seemed to dismiss the crisis or worry more about the optics of it than the reality of it but now he is talking about social distancing he's just not modeling at at on that press conference in the rose garden on Friday he was shaking hands he was sharing a microphone but after saying he wouldn't get tested he did get tested and his doctor says at least for now the president is negative trump talked about his contacts at a briefing yesterday let's listen to a little bit of Surgeon General Jerome Adams from the same event I want you all to understand some straight talk from the nation's Dr we really need you all to lean into and prioritize the health and safety of the American people no more bickering no more partisanship no more criticism or finger pointing out what's your read on that well it was interesting when I heard him say that I thought at first he was talking about president trump who has blamed the Obama administration and a foreign virus and the fed chairman Jay Powell in China and the U. N. C. N. N. and Nancy Pelosi for quote trying to create a panic but the surgeon general went on to make it very clear he was talking about the press he said we want more stories on how people can protect themselves less stories looking at what happened in the past and you know on Friday in the rose garden the president said quote I don't take responsibility at all when he was asked about why the delays in testing and why his administration dismantled the pandemic response team at the NSC and speaking of politics there's the debate tonight right there is a debate tonight part of the endemic is already affecting politics no more big crowds no more rallies the debate is in the studio at CNN we don't know how the pandemic will affect the results of the election that depends on how Americans judge president trump's leadership in this crisis the way they've judged other presidents during other crises at ten P. our national political correspondent Mara license Mara thank you very much thank you for I would say right now in terms of the corona virus my state of mind is just really one of wanting to take care of our neighbors next Gen Musee the executive director of the Ballard food bank in Seattle that city is the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States at the food bank fewer volunteers are showing up fewer clients to ms they says they're down about thirty percent people don't want to be out and about if they don't have to be the outbreak has also affected with the food bank has on its shelves we would send our volunteers out to recover groceries from the grocery stores and our trucks would come back with less food in them and that was really because everyone in our community is feeling the sense of anxiety and people are going out and shopping and purchasing things for their families as they need to but that also means for us to things that we see.
