W's Matt Gillom has the story. While the poll finds one in five Californians know somebody who's died from Corona virus. That figure goes up for members of communities of color who are being disproportionately affected by the pandemic. A survey from the Healthcare Foundation and Ipsos reveals almost 30% of black and Latin. Next residents know a covert victim. Socioeconomic status also was a factor. One in four people living below the poverty line knows someone who succumb to the virus. Although a majority of Californians 69% agree the state should implement stricter stay at home rules to slow the spread of the virus, the poll finds politics influencing enthusiasm. Three quarters of self identified liberals strongly support tougher rules if they would prevent more deaths. 40% of conservatives Aaron the strongly support category.

It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm No well King. Good morning. Congressional forecasters are predicting something breathtaking. The federal debt right now is almost as big as thie entire U. S economy, and by next year, they predict it will be bigger and it will soon surpass the debt load from World War two. So what is all of this mean? NPR's chief economics correspondent. Scott Horsefly has been looking through the data. Good Morning, Scott. Good morning. Well, had we get in this much debt. The government has been spending trillions of dollars to address both the health care and economic fallout from the pandemic. At the same time, households and businesses have been earning less money, so they're paying less in federal taxes. When the government pays out more and takes in last the whole in its budget gets bigger, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office they're the bean counters here in Washington. They say red ink has more than tripled this year to $3.3 trillion That's about 1/6 of GDP, and that makes this the biggest deficit has been as a share of the economy since 1945 And then next year, the government's stead is expected to be bigger than them the economy, which sounds astonishing. What does it mean exactly if if, if you think the deficit is the amount you charge on your credit card in any given year if you don't pay that off, and instead you keep adding to it, year after year that accumulated balance. Is your debt and next year, the federal government's debt is going to add up to Maura than all the goods and services we produce in the country in a year. Our GDP it's the first time that government debt has outstripped GDP in 75 years, so it is a milestone. As I popping is that might be the only well Even the people who were usually deficit scolds have acknowledged. This is not the time for the government to suddenly get stingy. Rather, they say, You know, we're in a once in a lifetime pandemic, and the government needs to put everything it can into solving that then once that's done, we can worry about the debt and deficit. That all sounds fair. Given how many people are out of work. How many people are going hungry being evicted? I want to go back to the analogy of the credit card and ask you how much room does the government have left on its credit card? There's still room, you know, Even with these huge deficits, the government's borrowing costs are still pretty low. In fact, the CEO says interest payments are expected to keep falling for the next few years. That won't last forever. In the latter half of the coming decade. The aging population and rising healthcare costs will put some pressure on the budget. But right now there are plenty of people willing to lend money to the U. S government for next to nothing in interest. It's also worth noting. No, I thought we were already running a big federal deficit before the pandemic hit. We were almost a trillion dollars in the red last year, when times were good. So little wonder Debts have been piling up during the deepest recession that most of us have ever lived through. We're has all of the money that the government has been spending during the pandemic. Where has all of it been going? Some of it went for those $1200 relief payments that most Americans got during the spring time. Some of it has gone to prop up struggling businesses with the forgivable loans.

She's a true Middle East expert, having lived and worked there for many years, and she's a good friend. Thanks for joining us today, Leela. Thanks for inviting me. We'll start by sharing a bit of your background with us. How did you end up with such an interest in the Middle East? You're born range in America. I thought, right. In fact, California of all places where Middle East interested people aren't that frequent. So Yeah, I started out. Growing up in a Christian home where my father was a riel, Zionist to really love the stories of Israel and of their wars, and there had a miracle successes and I grew up in that and So I decided to go to Israel in 2006. Just for like, three months, I was able to rent an apartment there and just stay there and kind of hanging out. And I did and what? I ended up staying for 10.5 years and I just got quickly engaged with friends. I don't know anyone when I went, but I need friends very quickly with people that actually knew what was going on. And so in my own curiosity sort of propelled me into getting better informed, and I started writing articles for Jerusalem post and on and on. It went, so I was there until 2017. Well as a California boy. I have a little bit of understanding what you're saying. One of the things about the Middle East is you never know what's going to go on. It is like it's a homogeneous area. It's ah A melting pot to make an understatement. But let's start with a big explosion in Lebanon last week. He's right away you go. What do we know about it? There's a lot of sort of speculation. What kind of insight could you end? Well, I'm having a hard time finding any speculation. That's not blaming Hezbollah in some way or form for this explosion. They were responsible for that porch. And they knew there had been this explosive there for six years. Nobody wanted to move it, which implies that they had other plans for it. Perhaps Or that they were just didn't know how to move it. I that I can't answer, but it's pretty clear that there was also some kind of depot for arms next door to it, which is insane, knowing the explosive quality of the chemicals, But in any case, it looks like that blue first and ignited the warehouse containing the Enormous stock of one of the most highly explosive substances it's used for, actually was intended the shipment that was stuck there was supposed to go to Moe's ambi for mining. I used for explosives in mining, where they blow up part of a mountain to get to the gold or whatever. But I didn't never made it to Mozambique, and so there it sat. And I think everybody knows in one way or other that has people I had other plans. And their plans got blown up. Will That makes a great deal of sense A cz you say as well controlled the area. They run that port they couldn't not know, and something that stored that close to the port. Where the ships dock. Generally implies they plan to do something with it. That's why they didn't move further inland anyway. Speculations Thanks for your insight on that. I mean, let's not forget it's the thousands of people that are injured and dad. I mean, it's one thing to look at it almost with a smirk at Hezbollah, and there Poor planning, But the tragedy is the country is just ripped apart by this physically and also economically, so it was already in deep trouble. And now it's just teetering on the edge of not being a country anymore. So that could be good news. If possible. I could be removed from the equation, but that's easier said than done. Yep, The average human being living somewhere just wants to be left alone to live their life. Unfortunately, there are terrorists and other kinds of bad people that won't let that happen. That's the situation there. Agreed. That's sort of the story of much of the Middle East. This is Colonel Danny Gillerman, Frontlines of freedom. We're discussing the Middle East with Leela Gilbert. Let's talk Syria Now That's a strange situation and the fact that yes, it's a country but Or so many warring factions. Russia's a big roll. I ran out of a roll turkey Can you give us some kind of insight on what's going on there? It seems to be that aside is there to stay at this point if he survives, and I don't know that he won't But, yes, the problem that I see there has a lot to do with Turkey because it has to do with the area. Ah, that Turkey invaded, deciding that they needed it back didn't even blind to them if they needed it to move refugees that had moved into Turkey from the Syria war. And they essentially are just expanding the size of a turkey by doing this, and so they've been using some of the veteran terrorists that were part of the civil war. Who took refuge there or in Turkey, and they've been using them to fight their way. Into that area, and it's not being opposed. It's amazing. There's very little pushback except from the Kurds and the currents. Basically defeated Isis. And now they're getting pushed out of their homes. Their turkey is really a bad guy right now in the Middle East, and it's expanding, and it's getting its fingers into several countries. And Syria's one of the big ones. And who else is there? Yeah, Russia and And you know the Russians trying to keep things I think in dish some control militarily, but it's really hard to tell what's going on. It's been hard to chill all along who the good guys were in Syria was extremely hard to know. And there's disputes about supporting us said like they didn't want him. Some people didn't want him overthrown because the devil you know is better than the devil. You don't know. And there was some truth to that. Certainly in Israel. But it's just very, very hard to read the cards and figure out who the good guys are. Well, yeah. And I understand in many of these kinds of fighting's Israel's position is all the people who hate us for killing each other. So let's just sit back and watch them close..

I welcome your comments and questions. Contact me through front lines of freedom dot com. Groups.

Do you want to live in a cot Free city? It's a pleasure to introduce a Bill Hartmann bill is a Vietnam veteran, a former mayor of Kentwood, Michigan, a former Michigan State senator and now works for the state. So thanks for joining US Bill. Thank you so much for having me Colonel Day, my friend and it's great to be here with you. Bill talked to us as a mayor or a member of government. What's the responsibility of government for taking care of the people? Jenny that that is the question and let me command it from a couple of ways when I was Mayor Kant would I thought this was probably the most prominent function during the head was to provide protection, no matter how beautiful the community, no matter how Lovely. The home people. Just one doesn't feel safe. It's just no good. So we all went safety and that's what I found in kid one and is throughout communities all over this nation. So let me talk about justification for their first of all our Constitution's piece for that, And we all know the decoration U s Constitution, but sometimes we don't know. State Constitution. And I love these words in the mission Constitution with people of the state of Michigan, Grateful to Almighty God for the blessing of Phil and earnestly desire to secure And I think that's the key words here. These buses been diminished yourself posterity your day and establish this constitution so It's right there even in the state Constitution, But I go beyond that. Because I'm a person of 35 Look at the one guy. I know everyone doesn't believe you're saying, but I'm looking at my motivation. Romans 13. Want to fire talks about Being subject of government, And the reason is love because we want to maintain the freedom and also retained or secondly, first, Peter Chapter 13 through 17. Speaks for the same kind of thing. So this very government that we need that protection thing is just common sense. I was watching TV the night of some of the rise and it was horrible, but He down store had been burned, and I saw this on elderly African American woman who was just crying, she said. That's why I got a shot. Because she didn't have a car she walked, announced Destroy. She's wondered what she's going to do many times. The people that would be hurt the worst are those that need police protection. Having said that I understand that there are many who do not feel safe with the police. I knew I was a mayor. But there are many who don't and I understand a lot. We've seen some horrible situation. Most prominent the judge Floyd really is like being taken right there on camera. It was awful, and I think It's just about unanimous how bad people feel about that. And so we need to make sure that our enforcement is righteous and just and that our laws are righteous and just and we have to ensure equity. Not discrimination, and I think that it's the real problem is not defunding. The police won't help, but I do think there is still A problem with the racism and discrimination in America, and we need to continue to try to work to enforced into get rid of their My thoughts are share more in my last minute.

Mike, This is Denny Guillemin. Frontlines of freedom. We're discussing the need for police. It's a pleasure to welcome now. Michela Joy Young. Michele is a military veteran and the sheriff of Kent County, Michigan. Welcome back to the show, Michelle. Thank you so much. And so glad to be here. Colonel Michelle, please share your perspective on this topic as a senior law enforcement officer. Yes, you know, so when, obviously and there's been a lot more conversation about this here in the letter a few months that we've just had, but this has been kind of a thread that's been in the community conversation for quite some time. And it's really quite a dichotomy. If you think about it because as a law enforcement administrator leader, we've had a push for officers to do more and more things. And be capable and experts in doing more and more things, But we've also saw over the last decade significant reduction in resource is to make those things happen and make him have been effectively. So we have in some ways diverted. A lot of our resource is that had typically been used for tactical kind of training, being able to accurately apply force in a way that doesn't injure somebody, or in a way that isn't dangerous. And we used those resource is to do other types of training. And I am a very huge proponent of doing additional training for officers. But we cannot ever forget the basics because when You see officers who are facing with a very dangerous situation, and they haven't been properly trained on had a safely manage that situation. You see them going Tio more extraordinary uses of force, and I'm not talking about the police officers who are acting out of hate or acting out of malice. And do just outrageous acts such as kneeling and somebody's throat. But I'm talking about officers who become involved in a physical fight and goto a weapon. Because they aren't well enough trained to manage physically the person that they're dealing with and then you know, so that has become a problem nationwide, and you can see it really in a lot of the videos that we watched so as a as a police administrator. Our struggle is to make sure that we know what that right balance of training is and then we also have sustained resource is to make sure that balance is happening. We always want officers that have perspective. The implicit bias training that is very well advocated right now is very powerful training. And I'd say in officers where they've had that opportunity to have implicit bias training where they've had theocracy, unity to dio mental health intervention, training and de escalation training. You watch. These officers used the enhanced knowledge and skill set and it really does make a big difference. But if those training's are done at the loss of some of the more basic police officer training It becomes a gap and event outcome sometimes happen, so it sounds like a very difficult conversation right now. But in reality we need to invest in our law enforcement. Right now. We need to make sure we build them up and empower them and make them feel capable of managing the situation so that they could do it more effectively. Then I would also say again investing into our police department's Those resource is that need tohave community connections. They need to understand what can be done with a particular Set of problems when they're having a consistent problem in a particular neighborhood. Or if they're having AH young person who's acting out and becoming more and more involved in law enforcement. They need to know where to turn to To resolve that other than taking him into custody. And when we haven't built those relationships and empowered those officers over time, we expect him to do something different in the critical incident, and that's that's way too late. For them to manage that circumstance. So I think big picture. We really need to think about ways that we can invest in law enforcement and work through some of these issues together as a big pitcher approach. Thank you, Michelle. I appreciate some of the insights There's clearly more to cover on this and the team will say with us, this is Colonel Danny Gillerman. Frontlines of freedom. It's nice outside. Don't you know when a couple of miles do this, while thinking patriotic thoughts.
