Karine Jean-Pierre: Forget the Christians

"Karen Jean Pierre, by the way, was asked about the disrespect for marriage act. And there's a lot of concern in the religious circles. We're going to be talking to Troy Miller from national religious broadcasters a little bit later on. A big concern that the radical LGBT crowd is going to become an after you Christian people, cut number 6. It's going to be signed tomorrow on the south lawn. But in the president himself, he told me the other day that he disagrees with Catholic bishops, the bishops, of course, believe that it will harm religious freedom. That said, this is going to be signed, and he also done deal. But what did the president say to religious organizations who fear they will now be targeted or discriminated against by the government for their beliefs in traditional marriage? So, look, um, you know, on his first day in The White House, the president signed an executive order on preventing the combating discrimination discrimination against LGBTQI plus Americans. And that EO has led key agencies, including hud, HHS, ED, DoJ, and CFPB to strengthen non discrimination protections and housing healthcare, education criminal systems and credit and lending services. And so I say that because he has been so committed to this issue from the beginning of his administration and when you when you look at this piece of legislation that has been passed, it actually addresses also the question that you're asking and takes that into account. But look, this is going to be tomorrow's going to be a really important day for many Americans, millions of Americans across the country. And I think we can not forget that. I'm going to move on. I'm going to move on. I'm going to move around. What do you want to say was blank the Christians? That's really what you wanted to say. But you can't say that, but that's what she was thinking. You could see the body language. So I took a course on that once.

Immigration Policy Falls on Supreme Court's Shoulders

"Cut from special report last night, there's an argument Supreme Court yesterday, two and a half hours on whether or not Texas and Louisiana can sue the secretary of HHS for failing to enforce the law as it is written. It's very complicated to try and explain it Supreme Court case in a minute. So I took a minute and a half on special report last night, cut number 23. But if you go back, you Hewitt to September of 2021. You had secretary Mallorca, right? In his memo and he says, the following quoting here, the majority of the more than 11 million undocumented or otherwise removable non citizens in the United States have been contributing members of our communities across the country for years. The fact in individual is a removable non citizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them. The department's personnel are to use their discretion and focus the department's enforcement resources in a more targeted way. And then you look at ice deportations over the past three years. I mean, look at the number right there. 60 9000 bottom right hand and look at the early number, 267,000. Hugh Hewitt, there's a three, almost 300 percent drop in deportations. So they're clearly have chosen not to follow federal immigration law. The memorandum that the secretary put out at the heart of this case poses the complex question of what does Xiaomi in this statute that they're debating things. There's three parts before the court trace. And it looks to me like there are 6 votes to say that Texas, Louisiana, other states consume. And they'll probably get a majority to say that Xiaomi shall do as much as you can. But the remedy, which the chief justice kept coming back to injustice Kavanaugh as well. What do we do if we tell you the memorandum was wrongfully issued? What's going to happen because we can't make ice do things. It's just up to the Supreme Court to say what the law is. The law is going to say, I think that that memorandum was inappropriately issued. But after that's done, the court can't order ice on a day to today basis to go round up people. So we'll be back where we started with a slap on the wrist for the administration, I think.

And Sam britton apparently is in hot water. You know, he took a leave of absence of September and nobody, nobody bothered to ask any questions. The media said absolutely nothing about this. Nothing at all. I mean, this was a high profile dude. They were doing stories about this guy and Large Marge like incessantly. Yeah. It was like a day in the life single day. I mean, I was to be honest, I am surprised that these two guys were not picked to be swimsuit models for Sports Illustrated. Fair enough. Just say it. Women of the year. Anyway, now we know what happened to Sam brenton. He is facing up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. You'd already did grace baker. What in the world did he do? He stole a woman's luggage. Wait a minute. He's got to be getting paid pretty well, right? Got to. Got to. Would you steal woman's luggage? So the suitcase odor alerted place. This all happened at the Minneapolis St. Paul airport. And officers reviewed video surveillance. Everything they got cameras everywhere in the airport. And they saw Sam brinton taking this woman's luggage. He removed the tag that identified the owners, so this is all intentional. And walked out of the airport. It was

"Play cut three 75 senator Josh hawley on fire three 75. A federal judge has just found as a finding of fact mister secretary that your office and I'm going to quote now is supervising the nerve center of federally directed censorship. Facebook writes again to HHS and highlights that Facebook is increasing the strength of our demotions for COVID and vaccine related content. We have example after example of this administration coordinated apparently, according to a federal court by your agency, pressuring coercing social media companies to engage in censorship. Is that constitutional? That is unequivocally false. It's what the emails show. It is unequivocally false center. You are not pressuring the big tech companies to take down accounts. You are not meeting with them to ask them to censor on your behalf. That is correct. We are not. Senator hawley, either he's lying or the documents are lying, your thoughts. He's lying. I mean, this is a guy who lies and he lies and he lies. He said there was no disinformation board. That was a lie. He said there was no plan to coordinate censorship across federal agencies. That's a lie. He lied today about his own internal studies in the Homeland Security department that had been published. We could see them. They've been leaked to the press. They say that DHS wants to make a top priority monitoring and taking down a quote unquote disinformation by Americans on what topics you might ask. Oh, on topics like COVID vaccine. COVID mandates, U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, what does this have to do with keeping Americans safe? Nothing. It has everything to do with censorship. This is this administration's top priority censoring Americans that they don't like. Charlie, it's sick. It's unconstitutional, and we have to stop it.

U.S. Buys $290M Worth of Radiation Sickness Drugs

"Now we're getting word that Health and Human Services is spending a lot of money. And we're talking about a lot of money in the hundreds of millions of dollars to provide communities and cities with medicines and equipment to deal with radiation poisoning. Now, why do you think that is? Do you think this is all just a coincidence? I mean, it may be just a coincidence, but do you believe this is a coincidence? There's a lot of talk about nuclear war, and if you listen very closely closely to the rhetoric, it's not coming from Vladimir Putin, it's coming from Joe Biden and the Biden administration and Ukraine. That's where the bulk of this talk is coming from. And the bigger concern we should all have is what will the Russians do if it turns out that Joe Biden, in fact, destroyed the Nord stream two pipeline? What happens? What happens to us? Now, I suspect the retaliation will come not here, but in space, and the Russians could very well take out a lot of our satellites. And they've got the ability to do that. But back here at home, people are really starting to, they're starting to get concerned. And I have a lot of questions about why the government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars preparing for what certainly looks like some sort of nuclear hostilities here in America. As a matter of fact, this is from the Health and Human Services website. The headline from the government, HHS purchases drug for use in radiological and nuclear emergencies. And we're talking $290 million.

"And the details and the facts of information that are actually important to where people if you have those facts would sit or stand or think are the cases? Yeah, I mean, even with all of your experience running huge foundations running the biggest government agency running the federal budget, there's still been a steep learning curve running a university, right? Because you are dealing with an entirely new population of human beings who have legitimate concerns, right? And young people are more diverse, they have legitimate reasons to worry about hate speech, right? I have to imagine all these issues have been new for you and have required you to actually become educated as well. Yes, the learning curve has been steep. It is great. It is great to learn being at a university you're very close to those that you serve in a way that you hear from them much more directly. It's obviously some days challenging. But I do welcome the voice of our students as well as our staff and our faculty and advancing the thinking and getting these issues right because it's not easy. That's one of the things that I think is very important is that we as a community recognize that things are hard and we as a community work together when they are hard. From a very early age, you showed leadership instincts, right? You were the president of your high school class and you were involved in political campaigns. These even as a kid, do you think that you had that in you that leadership was a part of you and your DNA, or do you think you had to learn how to become a leader? I think I did a lot of learning along the way. I think you are the personality that you are. But I just think a lot of what is around you contributes. Your personality is your personality. But there's a lot that's contributed as you kind of grow and learn. So for you, little mixture both. I think yes, a mixture of both with a very heavy dose of so many people contributed to what I am able to do today. So the heavier dose on the learn. That's Sylvia Matthews burwell.

"Could relieve some of these difficult situations and negative pressure that's occurring. At this point, things that are happening are air force isn't flying as many training flights. They've grounded people because they can't afford. To do that. And so the objective is to get a high enough level of spending that gin you can split it across all the departments of government and get us back to a level where base functioning is occurring as it was. And so that's where I kind of get on the merry go round. And so then you're starting that work on how do we get ourselves out of this thing the sequester. That is causing so much difficulty in terms of how the government functions for the American people. When did it become clear to you that there was going to be no deal that that congressional Republicans not enough of them would support. This budget. You know, I was hopeful to the very end because when you're the director of The Office of management and budget, it's your memo that shuts down. The government. And so obviously we had to put the plans in place. You have to do the calls with the departments, the departments have to put forward proposals of how they're going to function. It was a little hard to understand that we were going to shut down the government over funding for the Affordable Care Act. That was a sticking point. That was a large part of the sticking point that there were some members who just would not go forward. Some of the most conservative members of the country. I remember the time basically said, we're not going to support this unless unless we defund the Affordable Care Act. ObamaCare. They wanted to, they didn't want to support it with congressional funding anymore. That's correct. Obviously, you were not the only negotiator. There were tons of negotiators. They were legislative liaisons, and the president was involved, and they were congressional Democrats involved. But did you get to a point where you just realized that nothing could be done? You could not you yourself personally could not do anything to avoid a shutdown. There came a point where, you know, there's a clear realization that this is about the votes and that there was nothing more we could do to support the Republican leadership in getting those votes. So at that point, what, I mean, I guess the only thing you can do is manage a shutdown to the best of your ability. That's right. And it's a very difficult thing because the laws that surround shut down actually have criminal offenses. Because the point is, if you do not have an appropriation by Congress, you can't spend the taxpayers money. There are exceptions, but defining those exceptions is a quite a hard thing to do. All the loans for small businesses. You know, the processing of those loans just stops. And what that means if you were getting ready to start your small business and have been banking on that loan, it's all the things that people don't even consider. I mean, the FDA checking food. On a regular basis, you know, that kind of thing, because that's not an immediate danger to health. We have the FDA doing that because we catch things. And so it's just thing after thing every day, there are new issues and new problems coming in. I met with the president every single day during the shutdown to brief him on what were the biggest challenges what were the concerns and were we making progress on getting a deal? And I think that lasted like 16 days if I remember correctly. Yes, that's correct. I'm guy raz, and you're listening to wisdom from the top. We'll be right back.

This is wisdom from the top. I'm guy Roz. Afterwards you release a report basically showing the cost of it. I mean, I remember congressional Democrats, president Obama, their argument was this was just an unnecessary self inflicted wound, but it's going to have a huge impact on the economy and you released a report showing that just the salaries alone for furlough employees cost the government $2 billion. It was like 6 and a half million days of lost work and tons and tons of statistics in this report. I mean, were you just personal I'm just curious personally because you don't strike me and I've never seen you kind of express outrage or anger but I mean was a part of you just really mad about this because the argument from the administration's perspective was this was unnecessary. Yes, it was unnecessary and mad interacts with sad. Because like the people who work hard and pay their taxes, I want them to get the value for that money that we owe that to them. And the people who work hard every day. And nobody wants to talk about the details. Everybody wants the story of the day, but I mean, the aggregate problem that gets caused when you do this is just something that the American people don't deserve and those who are working hard and playing by the rules every day and coming to working in government don't deserve either. And so it's something that's quite saddening when it happens. I'm just curious. As you kind of moved from OMB and then you were nominated to run Health and Human Services. I think it's the third biggest federal agency, right? Is that right? There's a second biggest, maybe Pentagon USDA and HHS. By people by dollars, it's the largest. Wow. So with the budget budget of over a $1 trillion. Because of Medicare and Medicaid and Medicaid. That's right. So you're running the biggest department. And during your tenure, I mean, you are, you're dealing with congressional Republicans who want to repeal or severely cripple the Affordable Care Act. You've got this Zika virus, the Ebola epidemic,

"Can you find that deal space? There was a profile of you that I read and John Podesta, who was clearly a mentor, was a mentor of yours, is quoted in this profile, and he describes your time in the clean administration as a time when you became an extremely skilled negotiator. Was that a hard won skill that you learned or do you think that you had that skill kind of naturally when you got there? I think that's something that one learns, I think it does hearken back to some of the things from my time in U.S. about my community at home in West Virginia and the ideas of respect and listening to others is an important part. I think one of the skills that kind of I brought from my childhood and many things you had to learn. And the other thing about negotiating is really understanding the substance. It makes a real difference. So you understand where you can go. You can be creative because you have a depth of understanding. I was very fortunate to be able to watch and observe and very fortunate I have to say to even watch and observe those that one was negotiating against. Whether that was Newt Gingrich or Trent lott and to try and figure out how do you get things to work? When you're trying to get deals done. When your time with the administration came to an end, did you did you think that your sort of time and government was also over that you would now go into the private sector in some form and embark in an entirely new career path? I have never had a planned place, but how I think about the next steps and how I think about what I'm doing is related to a story when I was working at McKinsey. I had gone to a dinner party and met a friend's father at this dinner party and he had asked, would I be willing to consider moving to, I think it was the promise. It was The Bahamas to run a part of his construction business. You know, I'm very young at this point. And the idea of like, wow, I'll run my own thing. I'll be in The Bahamas. This sounds pretty good. Yeah. And so I was like, wow, this sounds so good and I was completely taken with this idea and I call up a friend in a mentor. Tom donlin, who became the deputy, he was the national security adviser for president Obama. Yeah. Then he had been chief of staff at the State Department and served in a number of different roles in government over time. I had had the chance to work with Tom in the 88 campaign. But I called Tom up and instead of saying Sylvia, that's the silliest and worst idea Tom was great and very gracious. And he said, well, Sylvia hears maybe one way to think about things. When you think about jobs and you think about your career, think about am I contributing? Am I learning and growing? And am I having fun?

Absolutely. Gene sperling myself and a number of others. That must have been such an exciting time because obviously it was a young candidate. What do you remember about working in Little Rock in 1992? It was a highly energized team. And I learned so much about economic policy. I learned so much about politics. I learned so much about leadership and I hopefully contributed on those fronts as a team member of a team that was going 24/7 leaders like James carvel and Paul begala. James was marine. And James had his own style of leadership, but one thing that I remember so much of his iron jeans that James always wore. But one of the things that I remember most that James did, was at one point, James handed out gold stars. And these are the gold stars for anyone who's old enough to remember when you went to the library in the summer and you read a book. And you've got a little star on a paper thing. Yeah. And that was how you recorded the books that you'd read for the summer. It was like a little sticker. Yeah. Well, on campaigns, there's not a lot of finances. There aren't a lot of things. But what James did was he created the gold stars. And so every Friday, James would hire out. Hand out a gold star to a person to honor their work for the campaign that week. And those gold stars were as big as any kind of bonus you could have given. And it was about being honored for your contributions to the team. And your contributions to moving us forward. And so everyone, when you got it, you put it on your badge to get into work. And so we all wore our badges every day. And so those gold stars. And it was an incredible lesson about understanding that recognizing people's work. And recognizing their contributions to a team is as motivating and as great as about anything you can do. Obviously Clinton wins the election and you, I guess, are tapped to help in the transition to work on the national economic council and eventually you would serve as deputy director of The Office of management and budget two years in, there's this Republican wave and all of a sudden you've got this sort of contingent of Republicans who really are not that interested in working with the Clinton administration of course today. It's a completely different story. The way it works, but back then it was already sort of the beginnings of this kind of the end of let's say post war bipartisanship. Do you remember having difficulties trying to negotiate with congressional Republicans or did you always try and figure out how to get to a deal? During that time, I could remember erskine Bowles once said to me, Sylvia, you attract more bees with honey. And that was all part of erskine's firm belief that you really need to understand what the other side. And he was the head of the OMB when you were. At that time, erskine was the chief of staff and I was a deputy chief of staff. Right. And we needed to negotiate. And at that time it was Trent lott, Newt Gingrich, and dick army. And gingrich would have us all over to the dinosaur room. That's what his office was called because he had some of the things he kept in the office. And you just had to get through and work it out. And there were many, many late nights. Yes, there was contention probably remember there was a government shutdown during that period that was one of the longer ones. But you could work to get things done. And that's what we did. Just time and time again, you work to get understand where it is we differ, what are the key objectives of either side, how

"Door in the first three weeks. I turned to Bill core, who was my deputy at that time, and I said, Bill, what's can you help me understand? Because he had been there. And he said, well, Sylvia sometimes people say that problems come in threes. I'm afraid with you, they come in 33s. How Sylvia Matthews burwell learned to navigate crisis after crisis at the highest levels of the nonprofit world and then as a member of president Obama's administration. The biggest government agency is not the Department of Defense or the treasury or even the agriculture department. If you consider budgets, it is the Department of Health and Human Services about a $1 trillion a year, because Medicare and Medicaid account for a huge chunk of government spending. But there's also the Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control, the national Institutes of health and so on. Keeping Americans healthy is expensive. And running an agency this big is probably the second most difficult job in Washington right after the presidency. And it's the kind of job where crisis tends to be the norm rather than the exception. Over the three years, Sylvia Matthews burwell ran HHS, she had to contend with the Ebola crisis, thousands of unaccompanied minors showing up at the U.S. border, the Zika epidemic, not to mention dozens of attempts by congressional Republicans to damage and even undermine the Affordable Care Act. When president Obama appointed Sylvia as head of the department in 2014, it was just after the bungled launch of ObamaCare, HHS was under intense pressure and congressional scrutiny. In the next three years, we're going to test every single lesson she'd learned as a leader, including the most important one. Planning and preparation are key, but always be prepared for that planning to fall apart. Which is actually what happened one night to Soviet during a Washington Nationals baseball game. She was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. And for 6 weeks, she practiced that pitch going to baseball fields all over Washington with her husband early in the morning, just to make sure she'd get the ball over the plate. And that night, when she got ready to throw out the pitch, happened to be HHS night at nationals park, thousands of her staffers were in attendance. And I happened to be there as well. Oh, did you see my disastrous pitch? You were there for that time. It was, you know, it's all right. I mean, you know, you know, it's actually a very interesting example around the issues of leadership because I practiced guy for many weeks, like 6, 7 weeks. I can tell you every baseball diamond that is public and open at 6 a.m. in Washington, D.C.. And instead of date night, Stephen and I would go for practice nights. He would be my catcher. You'd play catch. We would play catch for date nights. And so practice got it down. I even practiced on Wrigley Field at West Point. Wow. 'cause I was traveling there, and I practiced, as I said, for about two months. And our neighbor had played college ball and his three sons were pitchers, and so he taught me and but that night, I go there and I warm up and I warm up under you warm up under the field in the bullpen. It's underneath. This is a nationals park. This isn't nationals park, and I'm warming up. You're going to throw the first pitch. Yeah, since Steven's like, wow, I'm really feeling it in the glove now. Yeah. And I'm like, okay, okay. And then it was one of the hottest days. I don't know if you remember since you all were there. It was really, really hot. They handed me a ball. I get up there. And you know, I've been putting it across the plate. Just minutes before. Yeah. And what I learned is the reason that pictures put the ball in the dirt. And it was a brand new ball that they gave me to pitch. And so I wind up, I go and the pitch slips the ball slips out of my hand. Because your hand is sweating. And because I didn't get it dirty. Yeah. And so it just slips out of my hand. So the good news is that my form in pictures looks quite good. The bad news is, I got off the field and my son said to me, mom. That's the worst pitch I've ever seen. As did about 5000 HHS employees. But I used it in my next HHS letter that I sent out to the team as an example of we all fail. And we all fail even when we try really hard. And the question is, is what you do with it? Yeah. You did all the right things. That's right, and it didn't work out. Let me first ask you about where you grew up because you grew up in Hinton, West Virginia, I guess, where is that, by the way? Hinton West Virginia is in the southern part of the state of West Virginia. It's about four and a half hours drive from Washington, D.C., 5 and a half if you have kids that are not in 11. And it is on three rivers and a Lake. It's a very small town in a beautiful part of the world. What did your parents do when you were a kid? When I was a kid, my father was an optometrist. And my mother was a teacher. And my mother actually taught in everything from a one room school to a college, a college that is now a university. Is the West Virginia that you grew up in, was that a different West Virginia than the West Virginia? Of today. I think that there are some changes that have occurred that the economic difficulties have become greater that the issues of the opioid crisis are very real in the part of the state that I come from, but in terms of how it can shape and contribute to the sense of community. I think that's still very much exists and the idea of hard work, the idea of taking care of each other, knowing your neighbor, there are a number of things that I think still exist there, but there are some challenges that have gotten harder. How much does West Virginia shape who you are? Today. It shapes me, I think, a lot. I would say it is one of the seminal shaping features of my life. And it's both the place, the community, and my family that I think have so much impact on everything from my intellectual curiosity to how I think about service and how I think about those things. Yeah. I have to say one quick thing which is that there really is in our country a lack of awareness about service. And you made that conscious choice and make that conscious choice, right? I mean, I think it's something that a lot of people in the United States don't understand how many people just are not interested in becoming rich and because they're really focused on doing work that has, that serves the public and a bigger way. I think that there are two things for me that contributed a lot to that. And one is my family and my parents and what I saw my parents. My mom and dad wouldn't let us go trick or treating for Halloween until we went trick or treating for UNICEF first. So from the hours of four to 6, we would take the little box and we would go to all the neighborhoods and we would trick or treat for UNICEF. And collect money for UNICEF, then you'd go back from 6 to 8 and get your candy. You know, part of it is related to our faith. That is a part of what you learn in your faith, this important importance of service. And I think all of those things are the things that contribute to for me why there's such a strong sense of service. Many people don't appreciate. What government services or what it means? Yeah. When you grew up in West Virginia, it was a solidly democratic state, right? It was like the state of Robert Byrd and Rockefeller, Jay Rockefeller and John F. Kennedy's famous tour right through West Virginia. And so you became a Democrat. You devoted your public career to surveying democratic leaders. When you go back today, does it feel like the partisanship is more pronounced do people kind of people have known you give you grief or even just joke about it or is it does it feel pretty much the same as it did when you were

What led to his suspension or his at the time permanent suspension is no longer suspended of course. Was claims that he had made on the platform that, among other things, the vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccines do not stop infection or transmission and COVID-19, which even when he made the claim at the time, or made the statement tweeted that out to as following, was not untrue. And in fact, was view that was held by other people in the public health. Well, which was confirmed last week by CDC.

Which the NIH will not disclose underfoot. What they are and who he's getting the problem. And for what patents. When he retires, he's anticipating at the end of this presidential term. He will receive about 580,000 a year for his annual salary in his retirement pension. Alone on an annual basis will exceed that of the president's annual salary. His wife currently receives more salary than does the vice president. The corruption is so deep and so broad and you can see it on a daily basis.

"The HHS declaration in a new lawsuit. This morning health affairs editor in chief Alan Weil with his tank. As a general matter, states get to set the standards for medical care in their states. That's a traditional police power, but under the U.S. Constitution, the federal government can preempt state laws under certain conditions. We have a number of federal laws that have implications for access to abortion. Most recently, there's been reference to the emergency medical treatment act that does require hospitals to stabilize a patient when they come in in an emergency. And there are certainly pregnancy related conditions that could cause significant harm death to the woman who's pregnant and less treatment is provided, including in some particular instances and abortion, that provision runs counter to what some of the states are doing. We're seeing similar controversy about when the Food and Drug Administration has approved certain medications that assist with abortion or effectuate an abortion and states seek to limit those, the federal government certainly regulates drugs and states regulate medical practice and those are in conflict. Can we talk about the Texas attorney general and a suit filed there? The Texas attorney general has filed suit against the federal government on the federal government's interpretation of the administration gave guidance to states saying that hospitals under Impala may have to provide abortions to someone who comes in in a medical condition where an abortion would be necessary to prevent them from getting much worse. The standard in emtala is to stabilize the patient. You can't discharge someone who shows up in the emergency room until they're stabilized and there are certain medical conditions where someone is pregnant and the only way to stabilize their health is to abort the fetus. Texas is saying, but we get to decide what appropriate medical practice is in Texas and there's no reference to abortion in mental, which is certainly true. Yet, is a federal statute and federal statutes can take precedence over states. So we're going to see a conflict between these two. There's no way to tell exactly, but could we be looking at years and years of litigation here? Oh, I don't think there's any question that the Dobbs decision rather than settling a matter opened up literally dozens of new matters that are going to make their way through the court. Some of them all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the boundary between federal authority and state authority is certain to be one that will be litigated heavily. Tell me what's new at health affairs this week. We recently published a paper by Jane zoo at Oregon health and science university and colleagues. They found a large gap between the number of mental health professionals listed in Oregon Medicaid's managed care directories, and the number of those providers who are actually providing services to patients. This demonstrates that health plan provider list provide a distorted picture of the access to care that enrollees have a topic that's explored by a number of commentaries we published alongside the paper.

What Is the Incentive for Vaccine Makers to Stop Hurting People?

What Is the Incentive for Vaccine Makers to Stop Hurting People?

"Bill name. It was in the 1970s. Late 1970s, I think it was the vaccine protection act or something. I'm just spitballing here. Congress made a decision in order to try to expand the amount of people that get vaccines to say that you are not able to sue vaccine companies. Now the intention for why they did this might have been fine. I think some people had sinister intentions, but largely the reason was that people felt that vaccines would make the country healthier, it would make our ability to fight transmissible diseases easier and they didn't want vaccine companies tied up in court all the time having to defend the adverse events so they made a very simple machiavellian bargain the ends justify the means and they created VAERS, the vaccine adverse event reporting system. VAERS dot HH dot HHS dot gov, you could check it out yourself at VAERS you're able to put things into a portal. And so then Congress will actually pay the remedies, potentially if you were damaged by the vaccine. Now, this was all passed in a bill. I'm sorry my years a little off. It was 1986. It was the national childhood vaccine injury act. Which created the national vaccine injury compensation program, VICP, a no fault alternative to the traditional tort system. It provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines. Even in cases in which such findings is not made, petitioners still may receive compensation through a settlement. And so it's a way to try to make people who are damaged by vaccines whole. And so it's a federal government subsidy by the vaccine, but this is what's so insane. I mean, you might be listening to this. You say, well, that sounds reasonable. But it doesn't fix the problem. If the vaccines are hurting people and the Congress is willing to pay money for it, what is the incentive economic term for the vaccine manufacturers to stop producing vaccines that hurt people. None. If the

Eric and James O'Keefe Discuss Doing the Right Thing

"Hey folks we're talking to the author of American muckraker rethinking journalism for the 21st century. His name is James O'Keefe. James O'Keefe, you just said that a lot of people are scared. This is the issue, right? And so part of it. But what you and I believe, and what many people in history have believed is that there is a God. There is such a thing as truth. And I need to do the right thing because I know that whatever they want to call it, God, the universe will back me up. In other words, that to not do the right thing, ultimately I pay a much bigger price. I sell my soul to the devil so that I don't get in trouble today. And I really do believe, I mean, if I'm speaking in churches, I say that, you know, you should worry about what God thinks. You should fear God. Don't fear what people can do to you or whatever. But we're in a culture now we're doing the right thing is less celebrated. As you're saying, it's kind of, it really is we have been generally and collectively cowed by fear of losing an Instagram account or this or that. And so we are being controlled. And never more than now has it mattered that people say no, no. I will do the right thing. And I, in my position, I would say, I will trust God with my career. With my voice, I have to I have to get serious. What do I believe? And I think people need to be encouraged that when you do the right thing, yeah, it will work out for you in the end, no matter what happens, somehow you can't, you can not really I've written about Dietrich bonhoeffer. He went to the gallows for doing the right thing. But he believed that Jesus defeated death on the cross. Like at the end of the day, you have to decide what you believe. And I think that we're just living in a culture where a lot of people aren't sure. And so they're kind of hanging back and they're letting people like you get handcuffed. Well, I mean, this is you mentioned Bond hoffer. I wrote about Alexander silts and eats and in this book and he talks about in the gulag archipelago, which I heavily cite, because that book kind of changed my mindset and he says, you have a choice to make. You go to one direction you might lose your life. You go to another direction, you go against your conscience. And to follow your conscience and wherever it leads you is important. But it does come down to fear. It comes down to fear of, as you say, fear of God not man, one of our whistleblowers I asked her, Jody, O'Malley, from HHS, this is in September. I said, aren't you afraid? And she said, I fear God not man. But do actually do that. I think is the point. And I spoke at one church, calvary in California. I don't really speak the churches, but my feeling Eric is that maybe Christians are too afraid. And maybe they're not acting out on their faith.

'Radical Feminist' Kara Dansky Is Fighting for Women and Girls

And you have some opinions on this transgender topic. I do. I do. And I write all about them in a book called the abolition of sex, how the transgender agenda harms women and girls. So what's wrong with the transgender movement? Why would a radical feminist care about that? Yeah, so I mean, radical feminism is all about protecting the rights privacy and safety of women and girls. And we can not do that as a movement if we can not define the category of women and girls to exclude males. So I'm just so interested in this because it's rare to be able to talk to somebody like you because I've been saying where are the feminists? Yeah. Where are the feminists? And especially when you talk about this whole transgender issue, it would probably be the one group that should be the most vocal about this issue. Why is there a large amount of silence when it comes to this? From most of the institutional feminist groups. Right. It's a really good question. And senator Paul, when he was questioning doctor Levine to be assistant secretary of health at HHS, ask that very question, where are the feminists?

Is the Biden Administration Funding the Distribution of Crack Pipes?

"So there's a new story that came out, which is that the federal government was going to help people that are doing drugs by providing them with funds to make drugs you safer for addicts. It's a $30 million grant program which closed applications on Monday and will begin again in May. It'll provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drugs use drug use safer for addicts. Including the grant, which is overseen by HHS, our funds quote for smoking kits and supplies. Now the director of the smoking kits and supplies is not Hunter Biden, although he is a subject matter expert in smoking crack cocaine and getting away with it. But the position of the federal government now that we have a 100,000 drug overdose deaths is, you know, the problem is, we don't have enough crack pipes. If you think I'm joking, listen to it yourself, cut 65. Should the Biden administration now has a new plan, they are funding a $30 million program that will distribute smoking kits. These kits include crack and meth pipes. Okay, they're using taxpayer dollars for this. President Biden claims this was part of his executive order that it's supposed to help reduce harm in marginalized communities. No, I'm just going to point out the obvious here. That's the very same federal government that went on an all out Jihad against Ivermectin. So they go out on an all out campaign against hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, all while in the same breath saying, hey, you know what we need to do.

"Not. Here's Tucker last night on Fox News. Joe Biden, the president has announced another piece of his highly promoted equity agenda. That's the government wide effort to improve the lives of African Americans. You may recall that on his first day in office more than a year ago, the new president explained that equity will require determination and creativity. And this week, he proved that's true. Joe Biden's latest idea is to pay black people to smoke more crack. Going forward, the administration will send at least $30 million in tax money to nonprofits and local governments, so they can purchase safe smoking kits and supplies. According to HHS, these kits will contain Joe Biden approved pipes that will allow beneficiaries of the equity agenda to smoke crack cocaine, as well as crystal math. Some say it's about time. Soros aligned NGOs have long complained that marginalized groups in this country don't have adequate access to a legal narcotics or the tools to use them. With this new program, Joe Biden will finally close the crack gap for too long in America, quality crack pipes have been the domain of rich white men like so much else. Here's the president's son, for example, smoking crack and bed at the four seasons. You'll notice the beautifully designed custom crack pipe. It's cooling bowl, nestled in the high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. 100 Biden smokes crack, he does it in style. But not everyone in this country is so fortunate. Try to toast some rock in west Baltimore sometime. You may have to make the pipe yourself from tinfoil or a broken car antenna are inner cities are pipe deserts. Talk about the new Jim Crow. Bull Connor would be proud. Bull Connor didn't think black people deserved new crack pipes. Joe Biden is going to change that. You know, the only thing funnier than listening is watching Tracy my phone screener. She's got her tissue out. We are laughing so hard. Tracy is crying. She's laughing so hard.

"A future emergency That's the word from a government watchdog tonight a new report from the government accountability office also found in its words persistent deficiencies in how HHS has led the nation's response to the pandemic and do other public health emergencies over the past 15 years Let's take you live tonight to Washington Post health reporter Dan diamond Great to hear from you again Dan although we regret the nature of the subject we're discussing here quite disturbing and frightening what example would you cite as a problem that the GAO is pointing to with HHS Well Dmitry thanks for having me back The GAO was looking at specific recommendations that HHS ignored over the past number of years One of them being the testing strategy The GAO had said over a year ago that HHS needed to do more on testing even called on the department to come up with a national testing strategy HHS said they would but as we have seen in the past number of months there have been too few tests make sure you have not produced the strategy that they had promised GAO We had talked about these problems going back 15 years or so what has GA open trying to do to kind of get Health and Human Services to shape up GAO has been recommending various tactics strategies for the department to pursue in making the response to any crisis that much better and smoother So recommending more practice and training with other departments the Department of Homeland Security So if an actual crisis emerges these federal officials will already know what to do essentially They will have gotten their reps in They're rehearsal Some of that hasn't happened There's also been a push by GAO to clarify the roles of the strategic national stockpile for instance This stockpile of emergency supplies and equipment and in January of 2022 there are still big questions about what's in the stockpile how people access it and so on These are issues too that extend well beyond this administration as you pointed out they go back 15 years and beyond this crisis of COVID there are other issues that were similar during previous public health emergencies What's the response from HHS HHS has said that they understand the need to keep improving the nation's health system I think the Biden officials there believe that they inherited a lot of these problems and they're working to address them but it is clear Dmitry that some of the things that the Biden administration itself said they would do a year ago still have not come to pass So while HHS is saying that these are long running issues it does seem clear that it's a very heavy challenge for the current team to address You kind of walked me up to the final question Dan which would be we keep wondering why we are entering year three of our pandemic crisis And part of the answer is it's a once in a century situation and none of us was prepared and we've not really gone through anything like this before but can we point part of the finger at HHS I think it's fair to say that the federal government under President Biden has not done everything that they said they would do a year ago And I speak Dimitri from experience of reviewing that plan That was released a year ago There were about a 180 promises that President Biden and his team made some of those promises have yet to come to pass So the initiatives that President Biden and his team said they would launch whether it was around testing or improving the data on the pandemic Those would be things that would be helpful now and still were waiting for them to bear fruit Sure appreciate the update tonight Thank you very much Thank you Dan diamond with The Washington Post the health reporter there he is helping us understand this new report from GAO that finds persistent deficiencies in Health and Human Services going back 15 years Rob wood fork takes a look at changes in the NFL.

"Maybe not grab it real quick so this is a interview with a person who runs this institution about specifically around funding. I believe in in in in regard to the wuhan lab and eagles lions and all and the crossover there remember as well. This was openly discussed when trump pretended like he pulled back because wuhan and the whole thing right and acted like it wasn't okay. I'm gonna but the problem was that they stopped funding. Even they already had approved it before that during trump's administration but left all the other projects which still continue to this day like working with the with other labs in china with the same dan research not exact same but the end result gain of function cares. Because we on. That's the narrative we're only gonna make for that. One that from the very beginning showed us. There was something fishy going on right all right. let me play this clip. And we'll talk about it now. United states not for profit group that focuses on animal cruelty and tax. Payer waste has played a leading role in uncovering the ties between anthony. Fatty and the wuhan laps. Now bart out of out of the gate by the way even even this discussion is like heavily slanted towards just vouch. She and the lab which is what they're net. What the everything they're talking about is not just algae which i'll make that point. They're talking about the nih sp- aid which yes he runs. But it's not the this this reductive narrative of voucher in the lab. It drives me crazy. Because it's it's ignorantly reductive. There's a lot more people involved with these yes fouled. She does have some pretty unilateral control and a lot of ways but very talked about that but at the end of the day. That's why trump had to sign off on things he did or rather the specifically the administration and they did so. You cannot reduce this down to vouch alone. you just can't quite waste. I lifted the lid on how she was funding experiments at the wuhan institute of technology through a sub grant funneled through the health alliance right but again even that right there guys that was not some new discovery the fact that they were working with equal alliance to fund these projects was on an open document that you could look up now whether or not we knew about it. It's different. it's not a secret right. it's not like we have some leaked document that proved we never knew. It was openly on their documentation about this happening with equal the lions. That's why what's.

"Apparatus and the entire media apparatus and the entire government agenda right really. I mean think about how stupid that is. We're pretending simultaneously that we're a bunch of fringe weirdos. That have no no no. We can't even think for ourselves game tires shoes and yet somehow were able to be better than spreading information. Yeah that really lines up but the truth is the truth spreads faster especially when given equal time and now they're desperate to give it less time because they see how like wildfire and how obvious it is that this is happening. That's why this kind of stuff is happening anyway. The point is it says now therefore it is hereby resolved that is the sense of the board of county commissioners. That health information has declared a public health crisis. Clark county should commit to combating help this information and curb the spread of falsehoods right. It's a it's a license to remove what they don't agree with even if you think. They think they're doing the right thing. They will remove what they believe is. What is clearly not misinformation in some cases the very least as we can see it goes on to say it's important for our governing board declare melt misinformation to the public health crisis and commit to doing all we can to combat falsehoods that continue to jeopardize the lives of our right. So they're continuing to claim that your spreading information is literally killing people. I can't make that point enough. That will come to pass in a real time. A real world example whether arresting. Somebody like that's going to happen on a dime guys. The moment ready to do it. People will start to get arrested charged with potential violent crimes murder. Even that's where this is going now. I hope it doesn't get there. I hope we combat enough to where they pull back. But that's what they're trying to go. It's as jones and clark is among only a few countries counties should take such a step. The resolution clues passage affirming the effectiveness of cova nineteen. Of course it does the injections misinformation. I read the whole thing all right so clearly telling you that you're misinformation because.

I know so many medical people that are seeing these cases can identify with at first it was like oh you got two weeks after. I guess you you waited too long to get it. But there's just way too many people coming in with a positive holding resolve and suffering greatly. Because i hope she survived. His intimation is a serious.

It's a homeless watch the controversial history and it shows people in their own words. Jody came to us as a insider and proceeded to record conversations with your colleagues the let you say what you suppose. Well this is. These types of stories have been going on for a long time and i think people have gotten complacent about it and just think that it's just what is the world we live in today if you will and i reached out to project baron ties back in july and wanted to tell them everything i know but i didn't really have a clear example. It was just like all the but then after this happened to my co worker and she refused mactan treatment that she had wanted two weeks after taking the back seen as when i started recording so i wanna talk about that but i just want to remind our listeners because they might not have listened to our sister episode encourage them to. I did a whole hour on really what was revealed and so for me personally. Some of the most dramatic footage that you were able to capture was dr maria gonzalez. Who's an er doctor from the us department of health and human services says all of this is be us now. A patient probably has mara kyd is due to the vaccine but now the government are not gonna want to are not going to blame the vaccine. Can you help build that out about how you seeing people with adverse events to the vaccine and no one actually wanted to blame the vaccine her and there is also footage in there when the nurse who say they're just trying to joe. That's deanna paris. Yeah so when. I came in for a ship that night. She had that patient. She gave me record on that patient. So are we just there when all the lab value started resulting And then i'm sure that information dr mcgee who was saying. Oh well he had called last year and he's double vaccinated so this is weird. I wonder what's going on. He's saying so that that point in time gonzales got up and said what she had said. You know that this accident is bowl to 'em in that conversation soon. So i want to ask you another question. Which is the one of the other telling. Kind of parts of the video is where someone at a desk seems to be someone who's kind of in charge of paperwork for the hospital at least that's how i viewed it said that look filling out various takes thirty minutes and we're not even doing that. Can you talk about that. About how cumbersome viruses the vaccine adverse event reporting system and how we are likely vastly underreporting these adverse events absolutely under-reporting. In two twenty ten came out with this study that showed only one to ten percent. Vanhoose reactions reported. Well i'll tell you now that it's probably less than one percent With the mass will allow the vaccine. First of all you have to critically think and associated to and you have so many people that feel like this vaccine is.

"Screaming now on a rap on radio dot com. Welcome back to the show. Just doing a quick hunk here on Koh bit. I've ERM act in which we talked about yesterday's program with the deputy secretary of HHS, another study out and I ever met. And this is the anti headlights drug, anti parasitic drug. Another drug that exists that is showing promise in Treating covert 19 patients who have mild to moderate cases. There is a study out of Nigeria that suggests that there is efficacy with respect to the use of this is a therapeutic now. This study has not been peer review yet, but it is another study. In addition to previous ones, including that we talked about yesterday that show promise here and so again thinking about vaccinations vaccine out there and we don't talk about therapeutics anymore because we had the vaccine and so on and so forth again. The distribution and the implementation as we're seeing may take a lot longer than was initially projected by the government, unsurprisingly And so let's also continue to follow the science and have discussions with our doctors about therapeutics that could treat in addition to that, you know again, the vaccine is not without some risk Two individuals that have particular medical profiles, and you're going to have cases like this case out of Miami, where a 56 year old otherwise healthy doctor Died and his wife in the lengthy Facebook post this week believes that it was the visor vaccine that triggered a reaction, negative reaction and Dr Gregory Michael's system that ultimately led to his death. He received the Corona virus vaccine on December 18th experience side effects. Just days later, according to his wife, he was an obstetrician at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach. Fizer is doing a death investigation. They're saying it's not clear to them fact they don't believe that the vaccine was the proximate cause of his death. But he had a highly unusual case that developed shortly after taking the vaccine. Of a condition that decreases the body's ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding. His platelet count went went to zero well, where normal platelet count ranges from 600,000 platelets, per micro liter of blood and just reading from the coverage here in the science. And then went on to explain his wife did that, despite the widespread care for her husband, his platelet count never increased. And she suggested that her husband was pro vaccine, and she just wants urge. People understand that there's there are side effects that could arise from the shots for some people. Quote. It's not good for everyone, and in this case destroyed a beautiful life, a perfect family, and it's affected. So many people in the community do not let his death be in vain. Please save more lives. By making this information news. She implored the press and now it is becoming news. And I don't want to overstate it. And this doesn't suggest that people should stop taking the vaccines, although it may explain why, as we talked about al experience and earlier in the week He's not so happy to take the vaccine himself, and certainly not to administer to his Children, because, of course, the risk, particularly to his kids is infinite testable. Called of actually being infected. So I'm not going to hike this case the way that the media hypes every cove it infection or every anomalous Cove in case distinguished the standards here it is worth reporting. It's part of the contacts. Let's be open and honest and talk through these things, so people make informed risk assessments. Yeah, and associated with the choices they ultimately make with respect to living Generally and taking the vaccine. Specifically, this'll is a damn profit. Shaw. Everybody..
