"Wherever you get your podcasts. On radiolab. When did you join DoorDash? Uber eats Caviar. The gig economy. DoorDash, Postmates, rub hub, and ask, how do we value labor? Are there days I'm like, how am I going to get dinner for my family? Yep, absolutely. I ended up having to figure out a way to make ends meet. We were all like, what is going on? Somebody has to do something. Somebody has to speak out. Giga verse from radio lab. Listen wherever you find podcasts. This is on media. I'm for gladstone. In April 1917, president Woodrow Wilson established the committee on public information to mobilize public opinion about the First World War across all available media, producing tens of thousands of posters and pamphlets and editorials to the enemy as a remorseless soulless monster. After that war ended, the committee was impugned as having oversold the threat. So FDR's efforts to rally citizens for the next World War were a tad more transparent and a touch less hysterical. There was still censorship and egregious suppression of dissent, but not quite as egregious. I mentioned this only as a reminder that using domestic propaganda to get a country behind a war is by no means novel and U.S. hands or by no means clean. But this is about Russia now and how its propaganda has evolved. Molly? In 1923, the cheka, which was the Soviet secret police at that time. Created the first ever office dedicated to disinformation.

France's scar is a senior digital journalist for BBC monitoring, where he follows Russian state media, essentially disinformation in the here and now. In a piece in the telegraph, he noted that though Putin's so called special operation now is waged with the corporeal weapons of war, it really began a little over 8 years ago when Ukrainians ousted its pro Putin leadership, followed hard upon by Russia's annexing Crimea, and since then the Russian media have covered Ukraine far, far more than it covers itself. These talk shows I watched, they dominate the daily schedules on Russian TV, and they almost never talk about what's going on in Russia, only if Putin's given some big speech joy is as annual press conference or something. But they never talk about the reality faced by Russians. It's constantly focused on Ukraine and sometimes the west, more broadly. This obsession really with Ukraine that Ukraine is this bridgehead for the United States to launch some kind of invasion against Russia that has become an American client state has been consumed by Russians since 2014. And this kind of thinking starts to seep into the wider consciousness of ordinary Russians. When the tanks cross the border on the 24th of February, when Russia started launching missiles at Ukrainian cities, people accepted it because they'd been told for so long that Ukraine was hostile towards Russia and that this confrontation

stuff and you can start with Larry King I really appreciate you mister Thank you You're welcome However I'm going to give you a couple of Testimony simple I'll be very I'll try to be very efficient I'm a cardiac surgeon by life and training I'm also an epidemiologist and back back in November before the February March April of the beginning knowledge of this My friend and I also heard guys that started doctor to that borders And One of his patients that lived in Eugene was Chinese and was coming back from that city in China and she was talking about how she had this new kind of bug and the doctor was trying to get people to know about it and blah blah blah He's the doctor The doctor was actually killed by the Chinese press because he was actually trying to tell people that it wasn't that big of a deal but you know there are thousands Well the Chinese press is a state organ I mean you don't have an independent press So go ahead Well I love you It's fine He died which he was a wonderful man Very intuitive very bright Anyway the woman came back my friend and I treated her in our apartments And would you like to hear Well the summation of what I guess we should probably get to the point pretty soon here There are a lot of calls but go ahead Funny little cough first day And a 100° temperature second day solved with ibuprofen third date gone By gone you know what you mean died No no All the symptoms were gone Yeah Okay All right Okay And this was positively diagnosed as COVID-19 But he left us whatever and it well for whatever he had to say and anything he didn't have to say Peter Pitts who your thoughts Having a little trouble following the chronology there but clearly it's important that we understand where this disease came from how it got spread out of China so we can prevent these things in the future Yes Let's get right down to the point here I mean of course from the beginning a pandemic had broken out of this country in western Maryland just a few miles from fort Dietrich It would be an obvious natural common sense question to ask did this have anything to do with the work being done at fort detrick to reassure the world combat biological warfare which of course involves doing much of the same things you do to wage it And it would be an obvious question Somehow around Wuhan what they're untouchable it was an obvious question China is a big country the size of the United States in terms of square area minus Alaska I mean come on obviously Wuhan is the center of their biological warfare programs It was clearly a question that should be asked And boy there was an attempt on so many people to shut it down That's exactly right I mean when you ignore the obvious that you insult people's intelligence and people stop listening to you and that's dangerous Yeah It definitely is all right To John and saint albans Vermont good evening Leaving Jim you have a great radio program Please stay on the air Thank you Good awesome My question is to your guest Let's see I had the two first doses of Pfizer I had to booster the first two I didn't get sick The booster I had it was weird A few hours later I got a fever and chills called my doctor he told me to take ibuprofen which I did symptoms went away Happened a couple more days again and then after that it was fine My question is this vaccine is something that they call RNA this is it possibility this vaccine is going to cause cause us all of us some health problems down the road in the future but not your thoughts Peter Well actually it's mRNA Messenger RNA and what this does is it teaches your body how to produce the antibodies to combat the virus It's actually safer than the old style vaccines that actually injected live or dead vaccine into your body It's also less expensive to manufacture and quicker to manufacture In terms of long-term side effects there really shouldn't be any of these old that it's doing you're telling your body how to produce antibodies that it needs to fight the virus which the body will do once it has the virus anyway So I think that this is an extremely safe vaccine and it's been given to more people more quickly than any vaccine in history and the side effects are negligible and the benefits are enormous Sewage shrinks to the Pennsylvania good evening Good evening gentlemen I have two things that I wanted to bring up First of all your caller earlier I wanted to clarify what I think she was trying to say about this 2075 thing I think she was referring to the fact that the FDA asked a federal judge to postpone public disclosure of the data that it used to license the vaccines Why we can't know what's in the vaccines until everybody's long dead I think that's what she was referring to And why even do that I mean I miss the point I mean it's pretty clear for example with all the some of the information that was kept out of the for example the Kennedy assassination files obviously it was a great fear of public reaction to what would be told Why do this with this It screams cover up That may not be true sue but that's what it screams If it's information that is needed to be known by the public just tell us I would be my thoughts but I'll eventually defer to Peter Pitts but I'd like to hear your thoughts first soon Well yeah no I agree with you It does scream cover up All right let's ask our guest Peter I mean just tell us I mean well I think the FDA is required by law Once it's fully approved the product and all the Pfizer and the Johnson & Johnson and the modern vaccines that are now fully approved the data that was generated to reach those approvals is public and it is Now there is however some intellectual property that is not relevant to the manufacturer of these products That is and remains commercial confidential that's the law I don't think protection only extends for 17 years not 55 This year that keeps coming up this is news to me I have not heard that at all No I had neither but

the way out past Malcolm X avenue toward laboratory rose at the front end seems to be trying to head from D.C. into Maryland using I two 95 The other wrinkle is if you are not part of this convoy and just trying to get along the freeway or on three 95 all of the exits that you would get off of three 95 or the freeway have been blocked off until the convoy makes its way through So you're not going to be able to take those exits either Now southbound D.C. two 95 is at a crawl from bening road headed toward the 11th street bridge not quite sure if they're holding traffic at the 11th street bridge until the convoy makes its way across or whether this is all just the slowdown due to police activity due to this everything on the other side or whether they can just see what's going on but we are

"It. Now, first question, according to the testimony yesterday from Victoria Nuland. How is Victoria newland back in the State Department? Seriously, I wish I had time to discuss who she is. She's not a good person. Anyway, she's now a senior Biden appointee in the State Department at foggy bottom. And she testified open session with Marco Rubio and others in the Senate about U.S. programs in Ukraine that are funding biological weapons research facilities. So yes, they exist. Now, the fact that she's talking in open session about them means it's not a big super secret. It's not some George Soros plot to take over the world because you wouldn't be testifying about it in the Senate in open session unclassified. Nevertheless, I have a few questions after our experience with Fauci and Wuhan. What the hell are we doing involved bio weapons research? Fine. If it's defensive, on U.S. soil at fort detrick at places that we can control that aren't next to a nuclear tipped enemy of the United States. Insanity. So let's get to the bottom of that. Decent senators if there are any left. I know Marsha Blackburn is decent. Maybe you could get to the bottom of that. But even if there are U.S. funded biological weapons research facilities, why are they there? Do we really think that Putin invaded that country because Ukraine or America were about to release anthrax in Moscow? Can we just stop for a second? Russia, Ukraine. Our cash cows for the establishment. And I don't just mean the oil, I mean, look at the Clinton foundation, which is now reopening its doors. Look at the fact that the uranian one company holding company that was permitted to buy 20% of our uranium assets, which was approved by Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State. That company paid her husband when she was Secretary of State a cool $500,000 for one speech in Moscow. So let's do a little math here. Is there a dastardly plot by the globalists? To deploy biological weapons, developed in Ukraine against Moscow when they're paying Bill Clinton half a $1 million for 40 minutes work. Stop apply rational analysis. We shouldn't be spending a stinking red scent of biological weapons facilities anywhere except here in the United States. And they should be about defensive things and defensive things alone. But none of what we have heard justifies what we are witnessing in Ukraine right now. Every single day, the latest footage from the maternity hospital in Mario pole is devastating. And there's an I don't care if they were developing offensive biological weapons in Ukraine. You don't get to bomb hospitals. Go to my Instagram feed. See the ten year old girl who was murdered by Russians because they were bored. Yes, bored. So I won't give up running investigating what the truth of those labs is, but at the end of the day, ask the right questions and develop the scenarios that are most likely because otherwise, we will all be victims of propaganda.

And of course you're right. The the individual that was responsible for sending the anthrax letters was working at the fort detrick facility and he committed suicide which means he was suicide by the agency before he could stand trial because presumably there would be so much damaging information. Come out through the trial that they needed to just eliminate him just likely harvey oswald needed to be eliminated so that nothing to damaging come out during the trial proceedings. He was so badly compromise. This individual that it would probably do more damage to the agency then then had already been done because clearly clearly.

Al qaeda for the operation just as al qaeda was framed for the first operation on the ninth month and the eleventh day when the september eleventh attacks took place. So what's clear from the letters which were posted. An available on the fbi's website was that it was a clear attempt by very poorly advised a government agent to try to frame al qaeda Because there were a number of anomalies with the letters like the dating of the.

"Recently spoke to a couple veterans who made some good points about the covid vaccines. Dr. Nathan Fisher is a microbiologist, an Army veteran, a former public health emergency officer, and he worked at the U. S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick, Maryland, where he worked with both deadly viruses and finding vaccines. Dr. Maggie Felix is a clinical pharmacist, An Army reservist who worked with the U. S Army Central Command. And during our call. They both shared some interesting perspective on Covid and the vaccines. Tell me where we are with the military, the covid vaccine, and is it mandatory? And is that a good thing? So where we are is we have one fully approved FDA vaccine That's the Pfizer vaccine. And another the Moderna vaccine that has submitted its application to FDA, um and should be approved shortly. Both are approved to be very safe and very evocations in a huge number millions of people that have taken these vaccines globally so Secretary of Defense General Austin has issued a memorandum. Requiring all service members to be vaccinated with an FDA approved over 19 vaccine. So right now, Pfizer is the only one. I think that's a great thing. I fully support the specter initiative. In making this vaccine mandatory. I think it will improve readiness and help protect the forces. Okay, let's turn it over to you, Dr. Maggie Felix again. Your background is in pharmacology. Your former Centcom pharmacist and U S Army reservist. You had said something kind of surprised me. You said you understood why a service member might be hesitant to take it or you understood where they're coming from. When they say Hey, I have my reservations about this. Share with me a little bit about where you were coming from there. So a little bit background? I me, you know, Doctor Pharmacy pharmacist. Before I joined the Army. I had five years in retail, which is CVS, Walgreens. Business and pharmacists are in the civilian sector. There on the front lines of this vaccination effort, right? They are the ones leading the vaccination effort. And a lot of what pharmacists do is they're kind of a translator for the medical world, right? You can walk up to any civilian pharmacist. In those locations and ask them a medical question. And we're trained to not only triage but translate medical ease to the basic patient to inform them and or recommend meant that they should go to their physician. So and With some of their concerns, and one of the basic one was I have a choice. A lot of times in the military medically, we don't have a choice, right? They line us up and they give us all our shots before we deploy poking products. So rationally they They're just saying, I have a choice. I want to take that choice when it was voluntary right when it came out early January February, and it was in a voluntary status for all three. One of the best things that to recognize the rational thought process for the average. Joe, Wait a minute. I have a choice. Can I consider that choice? Mm. And that makes sense, too. As a prior enlisted myself. I remember being 84 very vividly on a ship. And and I wasn't given a lot of choices. And when I was given a choice, Well, damn it. I was taking it. I want the chicken nuggets. I don't want the hockey puck slider because I know you made that four hours ago. And that things rock hard, um Medicine radically different. And Nate, I'm going to go back to you because you said earlier that you fully support the diodes initiative to make this mandatory, But are we dealing with something that is safe? Are we dealing with this vaccine? That in your estimation is a lot like other vaccines? Or is this something so radically new? That the conspiracy theorist in me or the guy with just you know the hedges their bets because I don't always trust Uncle Sam. Yeah, well, I think that Maggie makes some good points there about It makes sense that service members would question the safety and the efficacy of the vaccine. And the fact is that there's a huge amount of data that tells us that these vaccines, especially the fighter, which is now fully approved. Is both safe and efficacious. So they direct answer to questions. Yes, yes, it is, Um, in a way The FDA defines safety for vaccines. So you also asked if it's similar. Um to other vaccines, and its safety profile is very similar to non live vaccines, which is the broad category of vaccine that this falls into Um, those types of vaccines don't tend to have a lot of unknown long term adverse events. Um, if there are adverse events, they tend to be discovered very soon after of administration. And so I think it's extremely unlikely that there's some unknown, um, adverse effect out there that we don't know about as scientists and public health professionals and so so, therefore my professional opinion is yes, it is both safe and appropriate for service members. And one more follow up to that we're dealing with the kind of vaccine here called an M R n a vaccine. But as you noted in that last reply, this isn't necessarily new. Although its application to covid 19 might be a new variation of it. This is not a new Vaccine of any kind, right? It's a relatively new vaccine delivery technology. I will say however, new means that we've been working on it for a couple of decades now, right, but not like we invented it last week. Um, so it is relatively new in the sense that it is, uh, technology that's been made available in the last couple of decades. And really the The reason why it's only been the last couple of decades actually has to do with how that Mrna is delivered into the The cell, which is by a Nana Lippo particle. Um, but the actual mRNA technology goes back several more decades. So it's just so it's not particularly new technology in some respects. It is a non living vaccine, so it does not stay in the body. We have very good data that tells us that the vaccine itself only stays in the body for, uh, less than three days after administration. It stays locally to the site of injection, and it does not be M. RNA does not integrate into the host. DNA or RNA, So it doesn't change people's genes. Nothing like this. So it's a relatively new, but that's still not real brand new and well, well understood technology. And only in science. Could something be worked on for two decades and still be considered relatively new? That's that's Yeah, exactly. That definitely doesn't work in the automotive industry. Right Make this one the lightning round. I'll throw this out to either of you, which everyone cares to answer it. But the magnets, the kitchen magnets on your arm, and the fact that this vaccine is localized to your shoulder region,.

"We just don't know quite yet and frankly i don't think depending on knows quite yet either jim williams On that the threat of of vice k Anything that you want to add just about. How the pentagon how. The president's national security team is looking at the Sustained growing threat of that group in this new afghanistan. Or something really important to understand here. And that's you know what laura said is that. Us forces are supposed to be down to zero by august thirty first right and that means that well when it comes to the threat of who exactly isis k. Is going to attack. Americans are not going to be in afghanistan right. american forces are not going to be there and so there's a big question that beyond just an immediate retaliation retaliatory strike. What actually is the long-term threat from isis k. And is there actually a long term threat to america to the american homeland particular right and does that require a sustained military campaign or counterterrorism campaign. You know isis k. Is very much you know has been around for quite a while. Now for at least five six years. Now's in two thousand fifteen And mostly attacked atkins security forces and the taliban and thousands of civilians as well but the question is whether they actually pose a threat to the us versus us interests and that also requires us to kind of redefine. What is the us interest in afghanistan anymore. Going forward right now if we still see the taliban as our enemies and we don't want them to have control of afghanistan well in some ways than having to fight off isis k. is potentially beneficial in terms of a long term kind of strategy of weakening the taliban now that doesn't mean that that's not gonna cause you know thousands of of casualties and that's awful but in terms of what we're talking about In terms of the us interest going forward in the country. You have to understand that these kind of local affiliate groups may in many cases adopt the kind of broader anti-american kind of global Rhetoric of groups like isis and al-qaeda however they are often mostly focused on their own local aims and their own local project and that means that once the. Us is out there. You know fewer targets. There's us less reason to try to attack. And then there's the question of you know inspiring attacks in the homeland and they can do that from anywhere you know they do it online and so really looking at. What is the threat long-term and is there really a threat. The would require sustained military counterterrorism campaign. And i'm not sure that's the case. The hunt for the origin of covert nineteen continues. This week present bind received a report. He ordered back in may about the corona virus. It was classified. What we do know is it was inconclusive. David running me turn to you. This has become something of an object. That's been volley back and forth between beijing and washington The two sides fighting about access to information related to covert nineteen And just fighting about the origin of of the virus itself. What the latest from from where you sit. What are the chinese saying about the support. The president ordered ninety days ago so even before this inconclusive report was delivered to his desk. He's so the chinese with this kind of all light propaganda assault. It's been going on for weeks but it's really. It's moved from kind of tabloid newspapers blowing to the communist fauzi to the podium of the chinese ministry day after day we have had the spokesman for the foreign ministry saying that maybe the virus began in an american military laboratory tree in fort detrick in maryland. Why the americans not allowing an international probe of others absolutely no evidence of this internet conspiracy theory about a year ago. China has now embraced it the talking about a scientist that the university of north carolina who was working on corona viruses. Maybe they investigate him. And in the meantime it's not just america. it's in fact. The world health organization many other countries with advance can public health systems extremely frustrated with the chinese government that is being basically throwing up as much dust and confusion as they can to try and end on shuts down any discussion of whether this forest began in china. And that's not just a political points to here in china they keep saying. This is just an american political attack. It is scientifically incredibly important to prevent the next pandemic to know how this one again was. It allowed league was a a transfer from mammals being sold at a food market to human beings classic zoonotic receiving previous pandemics like saws. We need to know how this began. The the truth is we will probably never know because it began somehow in china and china has absolutely no interest in having that conversation because it wants to talk about high. It's extremely strict. Quarantine contact tracing here in. China has placed the crush the virus whereas america and other western countries ought still full of cases full of death and destruction chaos in. This proves that. The chinese system is superior in every way to decadent. Failed selfish individualistic western. America and so the suns is being completely trampled. And that's a tragedy up because it's going to lead to the next pandemic not being prevented as it should be. Generally what the the goal of of commissioning this report again. We're operating from reporting that we've seen on the classified version of it and more public facing one is expected to come out in the coming days. According to to the white house did president by one this report to convey or or or to investigate And what do we know the substance of it at this point well not was about domestic politics. To be perfectly honest you know especially from the right from some members of the gop. There was a lot of Kind of Accusations against biden for not doing more to investigate the origins of this to not do more to push china in particular to turn over evidence and to cooperate and not doing more to punish china if they were responsible etc and so a lot of this was to kind of quiet down some of that domestic criticism and saying look. I'm gonna. I'm gonna take action you know i am. I am the president. I'm going to take action on going to assign intelligence officials to do this. Really big deep dive. The problem is that that doesn't mean that they're going to have any more information than they had. Before those ninety days rep rate. I think the intelligence community is already clearly focused on trying to figure this out and they hadn't yet and so you know a lot of the problem is going to be that we don't have a lot of the original information because a lot of it was likely destroyed or pushed aside and tucked away to never see the light of day for a very long time and i think there's a good chance that we probably won't no definitive answer for the foreseeable future and i think that's really important to understand. I think david's absolutely right and talking about how important it is that we do understand the origins of this and yet my former colleague refund has a really great piece on. Vox talking about how you know kind of regardless of whether it did come from lab or it came from animals. We don't need to know the answer to start taking actions to prevent the next pandemic from happening. We just assume that both are likely right. We can assume that it was a lab or we can assume that it came from animals. We can take steps to stop both of those things from happening. Because if both of those things are equally plausible or to some degree you know both are plausible..

"Director of the Global Bio Risk Advisory Council. We're looking At the uptick in Covid cases of the delta variant as we go to the more calls here. What about the The Epsilon variation? I just heard it mentioned, but I don't know what it is or what it does. I mean, like Delta Guess is more contagious, But I don't know about Absalon. I haven't heard his absolute. I did hear of Lambda. Um recently, Land actually had been identified back in July or August of last year, but now they're starting to see, um more cases in some countries. I think we're going to see more of these variants and they're going to keep track of them. And you're going to hear the most about those who they're worried the most about that. That could cause the most problems. All right, Pat in northern Michigan. Hello, Pat. All right. Thank you for taking my call. Um, As far as this Wuhan Institute and all the smoke, they've been blown up our guilt. Rat better at a bat. Bitter rat is ridiculous. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry, Pat. I'm sorry. What is ridiculous? That a bad little rat or, however, this thing was supposed to be superimposed upon us The smoke screen that they're trying to say. Well, I I don't know. Uh, perhaps you bring a A greater knowledge of immunology to the subject that I do. Let's turn to our guest patio Larger. What, Uh, is the the best information you have had? As to just how this thing might have started again, Keeping in mind? Of course. At that Wuhan lab was just down the road That would be like if a pandemic started in this country just down the road from Fort Detrick, Maryland. A lot of people would say that's hardly a coincidence, Batty. I understand that. And you know, the the lab in Wuhan is a is a high level with the color beautiful four labs. And there is some concern that you know, there may have been somebody who had gotten ill. We don't know that for sure. The fact that That viruses do jump. Um they will say jump or spillover from an animal to a human does happen, and there are many different examples of that. But they're they do know that there's the possibility that it's a bad. Um, uh, let's say, um, uh, waste from a bat was on grass and it was eaten by an animal. There are those chances and those are things that have happened in the past like with haunt a virus in Australia. Ebola virus. So we do know it happens and this is one of the things that's hard to find. Sometimes that sentinel or that beginning stage and they're still looking for how this started. Or at least we are. I'm not sure how seriously the Chinese are, but that, of course, the Yeah what they may or may not have had to do with it. Cannons connected in New York. Good evening. Good evening. Thanks for taking my call. I have kind of a multifaceted question. Um, number one is what kind of symptoms does the new Delta variant um How is it presenting itself and what makes it more dangerous than, say, the Covid 19, And on top of that Why would a vaccine make a difference for somebody who already had, say Covid 19 or any of the covid variations? How is that going to protect say, like me who's had it before? Who had very mild symptoms or, you know, let's say medium symptoms. Um and why if, say 95% of us Would get it would have mild symptoms. What is the benefit of taking a vaccine on top of already having it naturally? Run through my system. Um All right, let's let our guest respond to that. First of all. What, Uh, other than being more contagious? I'm not sure what Delta is. It's supposed to. Who have that's a different characteristic. Correct. That's correct. I think that, um one thing is that, uh, you're absolutely right. Uh, it may be more. It's probably more virulent in some respects as far as A lot of people are concerned about that. Um, it is, uh, one of the reasons why people are really concerned is the people that aren't vaccinated. And even if you had covid, you may not be immune to this particular variant and what they're looking at with the vaccine. There's 11 reason is that Hopefully, they'll want these vaccines that we have will protect you against some of these variants as well. Um, is that is that whole based on any particular scientific Basis. I'm just I'm just curious. Yeah, Some of the areas like in some of the other countries, especially like Israel and the U. K. They're starting to get more and more data and showing that the vaccines have protected Uh, you know, folks from getting the virus the other thing as far as you know. One thing about if you had had the disease. Yes, you know you You may, um you will have antibodies. How long those antibodies mistake is still in question..
