'Faucian Bargain' Author Steve Deace on a Shocking New German Study
"With us right now is Steve dace. He wrote Fauci and bargain. Steve, welcome back to the program. I had somebody come up to me a couple days ago. They said, Charlie, I found this amazing podcaster from Iowa. I was like, oh yeah. Steve dace, they said, yeah, exactly. It was great. And so Steve, you're growing, and it's great to see. Welcome back to the program. There's a study out of Germany. You want to share with us? Yeah, it's actually an alert from the German health department. And you think it's bad here. Imagine you're a German citizen in the last two weeks. They told you, we're going to be able to help you heat your home this winter. And oh, by the way, yeah, that jab, we mandated you all take one out of every 5000 were estimating, creates what the German health department said, quote, is a serious adverse effect. Which vaccine was it? They did not specify which we was. It could be a combination therein, obviously AstraZeneca would be more prevalent in Europe than it's not here. But just to show you that those numbers are estimated low in our own vaccine adverse reporting system adverse effect reporting system, otherwise known as VAERS, there is more than that in just sheer hospitalizations that are reported on there. And if you know anything about VAERS, you've got to go through numerous pages of citations and stuff to report and adverse event, which leads to things being underreported there because it's not something that you can easily document in the system. It kind of weeds out people who aren't serious about reporting
Dr. Caitlin Bernard Did Not Report Rape of 10-Year-Old to Authorities
"And some big questions being raised about the ten year olds. It turns out there was a ten year old child raped. There was a ten year old child who had to travel to Indiana. I guess on her doctor's orders and I'm hoping there's a lot of scrutiny about this Ohio doctor. This Caitlin would ever her name is because number one reportedly the doctor did not report the rape to the authorities to child protective services to the police as she's required to do as a medical doctor and number two, the reporting out of Ohio suggests that the rapist is a Guatemalan illegal. Here's Jesse watters last night on Fox News pointing out the obvious. Ohio detectives did their part, but there's still a lot of unanswered questions. Besides the girl not needing to cross state lines to Indiana for the abortion and whether the alleged rapist immigration status played any role in the cover up. Caitlin Bernard, the abortion Doctor Who performed the operation in Indiana, has a legal requirement to report the abortion to both child services and the state's health department because a ten year old isn't able to give consent and is therefore a rape victim. And from what we can find out so far, this Indian abortion doctor has covered this up. Failure to report is nothing new though for doctor Bernard. According to reporting from PJ media, she has a history of failing to report child abuse cases. And our sources as trace mentioned are telling Fox that doctor Bernard's employer, Indiana University health, has already filed a HIPAA violation against her. So is a criminal charge next. And will doctor Bernard lose her license?
A Bipartisan Look at Opioids with David Carlucci
"I really want to point out on this podcast if somebody is opening up this podcast and they're listening to me and David talk about this. Let me just say this real quickly. These drugs that you're getting that relate heroin and others that are being life. It could be your one time. It doesn't, you're not going to be 6 years strong out and then all of a sudden hit one. You could do this the first time and I think this is the important part. You know, we can have differences on how we actually live with marijuana or cannabis, those kinds of things. But one of the things that we struggle with in Congress, David, and I know it came back to a state level, was the access to opioids that came out of basically legal prescriptions. And that sort of triggered off this sort of latest round about ten to 12 years ago when, you know, whether it be more health insurer plan, whatever the doctors were prescribing them is if, frankly, they had no effect. I think we're getting a handle on that, but we're still feeling the after effects from what I've seen. I don't know how that was in New York. It is Georgia and other places. No access to opioids, like OxyContin, you know, have just really exacerbated the situation. And we look at former marketing materials that made opioid seem like they were not addicted. The total opposite, right? It's one of the addictive substances on earth. And you're absolutely right. This is not a recreational drug. You know, this isn't a joint and hanging out. Opioids are a serious, serious addiction. And I remember naloxone or Narcan, the brand name accessible. And this was about the commissioner of the health department of New York State that I was in a back and forth because at that time you needed a prescription to carry naloxone, which is the opioid antidote. And if we get it in someone's system or rise up. So we actually had to pass New York and we were the first state to do this to say that naloxone would be accessible over the counter doing that legislation. It didn't need to be legislated, but it wasn't being done through the health department. The health department could have issued just like they do to issue vaccines for the flu or other issues like COVID, what we've seen with vaccines. But that's where it gets back to the

Russell Brand Mocks CNN's Brian Stelter in New Video
"This is on rumble. I guess Russell Brand is a conservative. Maybe he's just a liberal like to laugh at CNN. But well edited well put together, check this out. Very interesting when anything dominates the news cycle, particularly at a time that other important and interesting things are potentially occurring. I want to show all kinds of opinions, which sounds great, but not all opinions are created equal. No, it's a little funny. You're not only making people not trust you, or you're making all natural name. Think about major news. CNN that have health departments and deaths and operations that work hard on verified information on COVID-19. They can't say that after the way they carried on around that horse paste stuff. Ivermectin is something more often used to deworm horses. Yes, that's the deworming medicine. When you have a horse deworming medication. Of course, the warmer. To deworm livestock. As a horse, dewormer. That's the upside down where we're in with figures like Joe Rogan. That one example showed you that they were not operating in good faith. I care about the way that information is conveyed to us and whether or not that means there's an agenda at play. For example, I don't think Joe Rogan does have an agenda. I don't think Joe Rogan stops that podcast, which takes bloody hours and goes right.
New York's Race-Based Preferential COVID Treatments Are Wholly Unethical
"I told you last week about how the state of New York was prioritizing. Antibody treatments for COVID based on race. They actually have a document that they put out the health department saying that they consider race if you are non white or Latino to be a qualifying a pre qualifier. It puts you first on the list. Because historically, you've been at a disadvantage. Think about that. They are trying to use race right now to bump people up for healthcare. So if I'm a wealthy Colombian born Wall Street trader or banker, I get treatment for preferential treatment over the poor poor white guy that doesn't have two cents to rub together. I mean, think about how wrong that is. It's so insane. And yet this president and his party have increasingly moved in that direction. And in doing so, and in doing so, they are leaving America and Americans behind, because everyday Americans, I don't care the color of your skin. You don't care about all that, jazz.

All of these factors lend even more urgency to the already. Urgent task of getting people vaccinated. What types of vaccine outreach are. Actually working w. a. amuse margaret barton has been covering health and the pandemic. She joins us now to talk about this. Good morning margaret. Hi esther thanks for having me. Okay so give us the baseline of where we stand with. Vaccinations in our region right. So as we've talked about before Vaccinations are fairly good here. So in. Dc for instance about sixty four percent of all residents have gotten at least one shot. But as you said. There's a lot of new urgency now of because of the delta variant meanwhile. Vaccinations have really kind of flatlined since earlier. Endless summer we are seeing a very slate upward trend in vaccinations in virginia in maryland. These days public health officials will tell you that. We're really in this sort of difficult part of the vaccine outreach effort where it's really about finding people who haven't gotten the shot and figuring out what information they need or what help they need to get access to the shot. I spoke to dr gloria auto in su who leads the fairfax county health department in start about doing folk music buddies about doing with communities we engaged with community and For their help so that we can help them and so. I think you'll hear a lot of that from public health leaders right now. What are health officials learning about. What actually works in the new phase of vaccine outreach. This is a question. I've been really curious about for awhile esther. The alexandria health department actually has been collecting data from its outreach. Efforts one of the most striking findings is that thirty six percent of unvaccinated people who had contact with an outreach worker so maybe they stopped by a table at an event or somebody knocked on their door. Thirty six percent of those unvaccinated people eventually went on to get an appointment So that's a pretty good success rate. I spoke to natalie. Tell us who is the department's population health manager. The bottom line of what we know is that consistency conversations and community connections are the things that were so tell us says that the health department will be examining the data that they've collected Closely to kind of zero in on the locations where their outreach teams are running into more unvaccinated people and they're also planning to start asking people some survey questions at vaccine clinics to try to figure out why they're choosing to get vaccinated now as opposed to earlier in the pandemic. So there's more to come there. So who are these unvaccinated people. Yeah so in our region it's basically kind of breaks down into a young people and blocking lot next people though. At least some health departments are making some limited progress including those racial gaps. The youth vaccinations piece of course is really interesting. Especially since school systems are gearing up to go back to in person classes later this month so officials are really scrambling to get shots to kids ages. Twelve and up who are eligible for them in dc. They've got a new incentive program going they're giving out gift cards and air pods to kids for getting vaccinated. I actually went to vaccine clinic at justice. High school in fairfax county and it was really busy. Spoke to laura hockey. Who's starting middle school this year. Since i'm going to be seeing more people. Now i feel it's better for me. Some of the public health officials.

It's a good opportunity to get them to take the shot. That's still you. Amu's margaret bartell. Giving us an update on vaccine outreach in our region margaret. Thank you so much. Thanks so much.

And so when I went to court, I did explain it to the judge and explain to her that that he couldn't afford it also explain, um, that we were trying to help you. No understand the problem and And try to help families that were we're facing. Potentially being arrested for not having septic systems so she eventually let him go. But there were also there was also another person in the courtroom, and she has spent the weekend in jail. And had been arrested for not having a septic system well. You know, I'm in the county is obliged to ensure No, that there aren't dangerous and unhealthy conditions. That's why there's a permitting system. That's why they act, but it just doesn't make any sense to expect people to do what they cannot do, right. It doesn't make any sense. I agree with you.

In getting business leaders, philanthropist activist together and you've helped a lot of people too. Resolve their problems. Is it harder to get people to pay attention to rural poverty than urban poverty? Do you think? Yes, it's very hard to get people to pay attention to rule poverty because most of those people don't understand it. Most people don't understand the way well, communities are organized because I often get questions like why do they not have this? Why do they not have that when people come to visit? I have to tell them write down the directions because there may come a time when you may not have a phone signal. And you can't rely on GPS so or or in the case where people look at an address and say, Oh, that person lives in Thailand, Alabama and assuming that Tyler Alabama's in Lands County because this part of the address Tyler, Alabama's actually in Dallas County, and that's where the post office is located. There were their mail comes from so That is, is those kinds of things that we have to teach people that are not for me. You would rule communities and because they're not for me a lot of things they just don't see. How much of this is about race? This kind of poverty? It depends on where is located.

I think that in lounge county for an example a lot of it is about race, but poor white people are having the same problems if I've gone the areas outside of Alabama. I've gone toe. Appalachia is part of the new poor People's campaign. I've seen it there, too. The only difference with people were white or of one goes to indigenous communities.

Currently our district has 13 open clusters impacting 52 cases.

She says. Some local restaurants are being proactive with igloos and outdoor dining as well as take out or third party delivery, Dr Samuels said. Many are placing great effort on following the rules. But others are not, she said. Quote a restaurant environment still has plenty of opportunity to be unmasked while sitting in a crowded environment and therefore greater opportunity to become infected. Anecdotally bars and bars with food service seem to do a poor job at having those in their establishments follow their guidance Complaints keep coming in every day from individuals concerned about businesses, not following Covert gardens, while case numbers are exploding. People need to do a better job for the sake of others in the community. This is a tough But an important step. I realize It's also painful one So many Of our restaurants and bars are small businesses. Have people's futures invested in them. So to attempt to provide some I'll be it. Not enough relief. We're launching a $40 Million fund. To assist restaurants and bars impacted by this step.

Currently, the businesses will be eligible for 10,000 and assistance, but the maximum ward if you have more than one location will be $20,000 per business entity. Businesses with at least 50% of their sales via drive throughs will not be eligible for their ward, and you may not be owned by a publicly traded company. We really want to make sure that we target the mom and pops and individual business owners out there who may be suffering from the largest impact. All businesses must certify that they're going to be in compliance with the governor's orders and remain in compliance with the executive orders in public told reporters. We know this doesn't cover the entire impact caused your business by covert 19. But we're hoping that it will help some in the meantime, and we'll keep you in. We'll give you updated as we finalized more details. Thank you. Thank you, Latasha. We're working hard to save lives. It's not easy for anybody. We need your help to make sure we get there.

The occupancy also applies 33%, 2 pools, bowling alleys and similar businesses. During the same time frame. We need our professional services in our office based businesses toe have all employees who are able to work from home. Impossible. Businesses should close to the public and, if open, maintain 33% of their employees at most, and their facility at one time. We're asking everybody In these targeted areas. Do this at the same time, so we get our maximum impact. If we're going to take a swing at this virus, we want to make sure we swing hard enough. Truly impact its direction and to stop exponential growth. Want to thank everybody who has stepped up and done his or her part, But we need you now, more than ever. Now schools.
