I never met a farmer in all of the different states in the southern United States that I worked in Ah black farmer that had not been discriminated against by USDA. The number of black farmers in America has shrunk from almost a million a century ago. Toe under 50,000 today, So how much can this measure really do? Let me just say that this is just merely a down payment compared to what we are going to do to address the past discrimination? The current discrimination of black farmers. Folks have got to understand this is no preferential treatment. This is no reparation. This is business. It is business that has been long overdue. Nobody has paid to do is for farming and agriculture like African American people. We were the pioneers in agriculture and slavery under the lash of the Web.

My grandfather got that farm in the thirties and bag during that period. 18.9% of all the farms in the sound own by black farmers. You know what it is today. Less than 2%.

Thank you for speaking with us today. Thank you ery for happened me. Some scientists are concerned The covert 19 pandemic could also contribute to another significant health problem. The overuse of antibiotics, which will erode their power to cure disease, Several studies show antibiotics were heavily used, especially during the during the early days of covert. Even though these drugs are not effective against viruses, NPR's science correspondent Richard Harris, reports infectious disease specialist have been watching with alarm is antibiotics lose their punch. Tens of thousands of people in the United States die every year from dangerous drug resistant infections. But doctors, of course faced another urgent threat Last year, Covad 19 and Dr Susan Swindles at the University of Nebraska Medical Center says they often reached for antibiotics. You know you have a patient in front of you with this potentially Lethal illness and there they have a fever and a car for they have difficulty breathing. And so the overwhelming desire is to just do whatever you can. Some patients got treated just in case they actually had bacterial pneumonia, not cove. It Other times, doctors figured patients might have both covert and a bacterial infection that's fairly common with the flu. Rachel's. It's at the Pew Charitable Trusts co authored a new study that documented this trend in a group of about 5000 patients, chiefly in the Midwest. There is high levels of antibiotic prescribing occurring within this population. Particularly when compared tol what we suspect The levels of bacterial infections is more than half of the people included in their study got antibiotics, even though most of them did not have bacterial infections. Co author Dr David Hon says people usually got the antibiotics right away before doctors had time to run tests to rule out bacterial infections, not inherently a bad practice. It's a necessary tool for providers to treat patients with suspected veteran infections when they hit the doors of the hospital. Immediate treatment can save the life of someone with sepsis, for example. But as the pandemic evolved, it became increasingly clear that this wasn't helping most coveted patients. Doctors usually discontinued therapy within a few days once they realized their patients wouldn't benefit. But still, this practice contributes to overuse of antibiotics and congratulate Leah rode their potency here and says hospitals had in recent years been compelled to adopt guidelines to rein in inappropriate antibiotic use. What we're concerned about is that those progresses that we've seen in the last few years could reverse now. These findings mostly applied to medical practice in the first six months of the pandemic. Since then, doctors have had effective drugs to reach for, and I've learned that their patients rarely get secondary bacterial infections, Dr Swindles says in her hospital That's reduced the impulse to reach for antibiotics still going on to a sitting 10, but Improved, Researchers at Pew are eager to see results from follow up studies.

Biden Plans To Bring Vilsack Back To USDA, Despite Criticism From Reformers
"President elect biden is ready to announce to more cabinet nominations. This morning one name is familiar. Biden wants tom. Vilsek who served as secretary of agriculture in the obama administration to return to that same job and he's nominating congresswoman marcia fudge to be secretary of housing and urban development. This is interesting. A lot of people had been urging biden depict fudge for the agriculture job instead. Joining me now is. Npr's dan charles who covers food and agriculture. For i dan. Good morning david well. Let's talk about representative. Marcia fudge what why were so many people pushing for her to get the job. So there's an interesting thing about the department of agriculture. It was set up to help farmers back when farmers were half of the country. And it's still does a lot of that but the country has changed and the biggest part of the usda's budget now is nutrition aid. You know the supplemental nutrition assistance program snyder's school lunches and marcia fudge has been one of the fiercest defenders of those nutrition programs on capitol hill. She represents a district that includes much of cleveland also akron ohio. She's been on the house. Agriculture committee she and her supporters felt. It was high time for the top. Usda job to go to somebody who saw those nutrition programs as the department's big priority and not just sort of a change in emphasis but this would have been a historic break with the past In that job she's a black woman is she would have been the first black woman in that job. Only the second woman Period also. There's another thing you know. Most agriculture secretaries have been connected somehow to farming or farming areas. She's from city. Well you know in the end it did not happen. David will now be nominated. Apparently to be secretary of housing and urban development instead and for agriculture biden went for somebody much more traditional. Tom vilsek may be part. Two former governor of iowa who becoming back into the same job at that he served on president obama right. He was secretary of agriculture. For all eight years of the obama administration but apparently that was not enough for him. He's okay middle of the road described as even-handed certainly knows the issues but some of those anti-hunger groups and environmental advocates who supported fudge. Really are not happy about deville sack choice. It's partly because they want that change at. Usda more focus on nutrition also the environment. But there's another thing. Tom vilsek after he left. The obama administration took a job as ceo of the us dairy export council which is an industry group and his critic. Say this is kind of a sign of their problem with them. They say he's too cozy with the big companies that represent the status quo in agriculture. Why you cover so much of this I in very deep ways. I mean talk. About what policies may or may not change under a biden administration with vilsek at the homeless department vilsek represents continuity in a way but there are things that people do expect change There's been an extraordinary development in the last couple of years. During the trump administration the secretary that the department of agriculture passed out record breaking amounts of financial aid to farmers this year alone. Forty six billion dollars in direct government payments. I think that is not going to continue. There's another thing the. Usda may turn into a bit of an environmental agency play a big role. Perhaps in climate change it has some money. For this rural development programs could help pay for clean energy in rural areas their plans to pay farmers for practices on the farm that reduce greenhouse emissions could also promote reforestation. The us forest service sexy part of the us department of agriculture and those forests are in the way as the climate heats up npr's. Dan charles covers food and agriculture. Dan thanks so much thank

"Morning and welcome to the Saturday morning show O'Ryan Samuels and with you, I will be joined by Max Armstrong and a few other people between now and six o'clock this morning. As we catch up on the world of agriculture and the harvest season and some special events as we approach bedrooms, day or armistice, they regardless of your age, you probably have different names for the holiday coming up. This week, but we're good did to be with you again this morning, and we always look forward to it. But some of the information that we've had to add to our morning report continues to dominate. Of course, the count for the presidential race and the camp that I provide every morning at this time. And here it is The bad news The United States yesterday reported a record increase in new Corona virus cases for a third straight day. At least 121,237 new infections and the outbreak is spreading in every region with 19 other 50 states. Reporting record one day increases yesterday. That's according to the daily tally from our friends at Reuters, So we keep talking about this situation. A CZ faras. The harvest season is concerned. Well, I think we have made the Thanksgiving Day headline for putting away the grain cards from the combines for this season. As we continued tohave unbelievable weather. For this time of the gear right now I'm a 51 degrees. On my thermometer in the back, narrative, my home and patty and patio here in Huntley, Illinois, and I can't remember in early November that we meant whether like we've had, but Let's continue to enjoy it while we've got it. And it's great that we're able to put the combine away on schedule or ahead of schedule because of the good service, whether that we have ahead So we're still counting to make it official. But it looks like Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. But while the nation was watching the presidential count that we've been looking at since ofwhich in day There was a surprise and a disappointment for me in the agricultural community, and I was surprised that Democratic Congressman Collin Peterson Who is chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, failed toe win reelection in Minnesota on Tuesday, and that's a loss that some agricultural leaders said could hurt. A lot of the agricultural community. Now the rules of Gore's are that the party that retains control of the White House. The in this case, the chains that could be coming with Joe Biden as president, and it's pretty much taken for granted down. But that's going to happen. But for Collin Peterson, who had known for years of interviewed many times during that time I was. I was surprised almost shark by the fact that he did not retain his seat in Minnesota. I thought he was solid up there, but apparently he wasn't And so he is. No longer going to be serving his chairman of the House Agriculture Committee. And there are few legislators, few members of Congress that have the legislative knowledge of agriculture, as does Colin Peters and And although the Democrats retained control of the house and therefore will again chair Lee Committee Peterson's exit could shift spending away from a region hammered by trade boards and weather situations. Ruling party's takes seniority into account when selecting committee chairs And that provides an opening for a new chairman of the House Agriculture Committee could be picked from robberies. Entity gives Jim Cost of California David Scott of Georgia and Marcia Fudge of Ohio to leave the Agriculture Committee. House Agriculture Committee has jurisdiction over a vast range of agriculture and rural issues, including the farm bill, renewable Energy disaster, assistant nutrition and crop insurance. And in case you forgot we write a new farm bill every five years, So the night's new farm bill will be put together between now and 2000 and 23. When we'll have tto have a new farm bill in place to serve the agricultural community. But discussion of the farm bill generally starts years in advance because it's complicated, not easy. Former U. S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp of the North Dakota Democrat from there, said Peterson's defeat was quote devastating because he understood intricacies of the legislation. And he is long word with Republicans who will retain control of the Senate and the Heidkamp said Colin knew Mohr above the farm bill than anyone else in Congress. And Republican Michelle Fischbach, who beat Peterson and will seek a seat on the committee is also quite knowledgeable in agriculture, but doesn't have the experience in putting together a bill. But then there is another interesting aspect to all of this. What will Collin Peterson do when hey moves honorably Congress and Ah, there's now speculation that his name will be at the top of the list. To be secretary of agriculture in a Biden administration. So far, he has not responded to requests for comment. But not bad. If Collin Peterson would become secretary of agriculture, I think And Joe Glauber, who is the in the current Department of Agriculture is an economist said. I would think that if Biden winds, Peterson would go right to the top of the list for US the secretary of agriculture So Quite a bit of speculation in many areas as we move forward with the count and yesterday had some company here. A TTE the house Holly Spangler with Prairie Farmer magazine spent some time in our house yesterday and a Jameson's And we talked a lot about the changes in agriculture that we have seen and that we're going to see from the standpoint of legislation. But the work that has to be done by the House I'd committee on a new farm bill will be starting right now. And it will be interesting to see whose name comes to the Tom for the various positions of leadership. And those names who will move out of the leadership community. But as I said, I was sorry to see that Collin Peterson could not help or could not keep his seat in Minnesota. I was surprised and Disappointed by that information, and so we'll have to see what's goingto happen, But as I said, we put the combines away. Holly's Spangler, who visited yesterday, said Yep. They're combine his part on their farm. Uh, near McComb, Illinois, because they're done with the harvest for the year and various reports on how good the harvest actually was. Because Of that new word that I learned during the fall weather season. The ratio that wind storm that came through the heart of the Midwest from Nebraska on the West all the way that I were on the East. And we're still getting numbers and waiting for numbers on the yield situation because of the racial situation that impacted Agriculture in a very important part of the country. So we're going Teo check in with Max Armstrong for a special report this morning as we approach Whatever you call it, Veterans Day, Armistice Day or whatever, because there's a a Neve ent that they X place every year. A little bit south of Chicago that takes ah, the understanding of veterans. They tio different level than I think most of those known and done during our lifetime. So much is going to join us with a will county farmer. Who has an interesting story to share, so we'll join backs and mad farmer when.

The agricultural market doing pretty good on this day with the soybeans, particularly rallying at the Chicago Board of Trade. A quick look at the numbers. The December wheat contract is up a penny of bushel. And that puts it at the $6.7 of ritual. The December corn contract is up 14.5 cents or make it boring tohave cents a bushel trading at $4.9 and three quarters since Soybeans, though doing particularly well today, as they did yesterday, they November soybean contract at the moment of 23 cents a bushel. And that puts it at $11.2. Livestock. Future Chicago Merc until exchange. Here are the numbers. The December lean hog contract is up a dollar, five cents a hundredweight. The December Lied. Capital contract is up 42 cents and the November Theater cattle contract is up just five cents. While most of the attention on the election this week focused on the presidential race, there was another outcome that agriculture will have to pay attention to A surprising event to me, the Democratic congressman Common Peterson, who is the House Agriculture Committee chairman and has been for years He failed. The win reelection in Minnesota on Tuesday, wants that some agricultural leaders said could hurt the Midwest Grain Belt. And though Democrats retain the control of the house and therefore will again chair the committee, Peterson's exit could shift us spending away from a region that's been hammered. By trade responsibilities and negotiations and trade agreements. But ruling parties take senior the into account when selecting committee chairs and that provides an opening for a senior House Democrats. Like Congressman Jim Acosta of California, David Scott of Georgia and Marcia Fudge of Ohio, to lead to the Agriculture Committee. And the Agriculture Committee does have the ability to will do a lot of things that impact agriculture, for example, they have jurisdiction over vast ranges of agriculture and rural issues, including the farm bill, Renewable Energy Disaster Assistance, Nutrition. And crop insurance, and we write a new farm bill every five years, so the current farm bill expires in 2023. And the new bill will have to be written. Former U. S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat from North Dakota, said Peterson's defeat was quote devastating because he understood intricacies of the legislation. And she said he has long worked with Republicans who will likely retain control of the Senate and the former Congress senator from North Dakota said. Colin knew more about the farm bill than anyone else in Congress. So we'll have to want that one carefully and on the foreign trade picture. We talk a lot about corn and soybeans, but we got a sale this morning. The Chinese buyers have book deals to buy 106,000 tonnes of sorghum, part of the country's ramp up of feed reined in boards. It was the first so called flash sale of sorghum to China since June, but China has been consistent with smaller purchases of the grain. Throughout the fall, A USDA report showed The China bought 340,000 tonnes of sorghum in the week ended October 29th. Which was its biggest weekly totaled since early August.

"house agriculture committee" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"I can imagine that being a genuine concern and I'm sure it is and I guess that is definitely something that he has to take into account but honestly between policy and Schumer opposition is supposed to be easier in terms of maintaining unity like and the governing is harder and Pelosi's great accomplishment in her career is pushing the affordable care act over the finish line when other people lost their nerve and that was hard because they were trying to officially push a major change in American policy holiday that is difficult and she actually managed to accomplish it then now. It's actually a lot easier because you have a repugnant president who has not at one time in his presidency been a popular figure opposition. It's much easier to maintain eighteen unity like we all have disagreements about Medicare buyin versus single payer like those I understand those are going to be complicated issues down though I what you should be able to maintain kids in cages is wrong that is a type of thing we should be able to say united and so yes as between Shumer and Pelosi who who's accorded what percentage of the I don't know but between them they need to do about it right between them. It's about one hundred percent yes and and the idea that you're hesitating leading to criticize investigate. The guy who gave a sweetheart deal to a child sex. Trafficker is like I don't understand like do you know anybody even even know like has an idea is what's going through their mind like I mean there are theories that are bound but I just I I keep like asking people like hoping to run into the one person's like yeah I know but this is the theory and nobody can even can give me a theory. I think that Democrats and there are pluses and minuses too. That's but they rely on seniority to determine who is the committee chair and you have a lot of people who have spent a long time in the minority who have not been a chair before and they all dreamed of pushing their legislative agenda as a chair and they did not dream of doing oversight and it is unfortunate that they don't consider oversight to be one of their key avenues here's but they've essentially begun to outsource all oversight to the House Oversight Committee. There's one specific community that has oversight over anything it wants and then one thousand nine committees that have jurisdiction on specific issues and oversight within those issues and Elijah Cummings is a very busy man he chairs the House Oversight Committee. He is doing the best he can. He has way too much to look at but you need the subject matter expertise of house ways and means on taxes. You need the House Transportation Committee to look into Boeing being in how planes are falling out of the air. You Need House Agriculture Committee to look into how the secretary of agriculture is doing all sorts of corrupt business allowing big agriculture to take advantage of America's farmers etc etc and they just don't seem to see their job that way part of its cultural part of it is a failure of individuals but ultimately Nancy poesies sets the agenda for the entire caucus and she's easiest part person to hold responsible okay so uh-huh aside from doing podcasts and getting really mad about it what what could folks at like this conference..

But they're not going to they're going to do it. Try to save Collin Peterson which they probably won't be able to do. And then he'll come back. If he does if they do it. Excuse me. He'll come back to the house and keep voting Republicans. Like, he always does and always has done. And of course, not just that. But the big deal is he is he's the chairman of the House Agriculture Committee. There's no one in congress more than he is. There are others as corrupt and takes a Mensa amounts of of money and bribes from big agriculture and spreads it around among colleagues. That's why they keep him in there because he's the one that gets all the money from big I recall -ture and gives it gives it around to the other Democrats. So therefore, they think he's worth having even though we both Republicans horrible. Well, what I was saying earlier when I told the story is okay, Minnesota, go find someone to primary this guy.

Sherry booths does wants the rubbing their noses. She made in public policy with your permission of Nancy Pelosi, and Steny Hoyer horrible from her on this. She she's she's just absolutely terrible.

"I sincerely believe that the Democrats are gonna cave on this because the merits are on the president's side this kind of border funding they financially supported before. And then it became politically toxic for them to do. So. And then they switched. Most Americans believe that the borders are pores on purpose. That is to say that if there were true will to secure the borders. Most Americans believe the board is would in fact, be secure. It is a legitimate question about the cost of illegal immigration to society is legitimate question about the cost of illegal immigration to unskilled workers, especially those living in the inner city who are black and Brown. I just wrote a piece about reasonable liberals, including the one that I told you the other day named Peter beinart who writes for the Atlantic. He wrote a piece and he took fellow liberals to task he's a self described liberal to task for doing a one eighty on immigration. He said we used to have the same position that Donald Trump is has been espousing. And now the politics have changed. Now, there is a democrat in Minnesota. House member congressman Collin Peterson. And he is telling his democratic colleagues to approve the president's request for funding on the southern border, quote, give Trump the money he said on a radio program. I give him the whole thing and put strings on it. So you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be. Why are we fighting over this? We're going to build that wall. Anyway at some time close quote. He said he just want to give the president a blank cheque quote, but I don't want to preclude him from getting the money either. If he's going to use the money correctly end of quote, he's chairman of the House Agriculture Committee. And then you have the house majority leader Steny Hoyer from Maryland saying, yeah. Walls walls, do work. Sometimes. And there's anybody really believed that they don't have five billion dollars lying around somewhere that could use for this. Does anybody really believe that Democrats don't want to spend the money because they believe the money will be efficient, given how inefficiently Democrats and Republicans have spent money year after year decade after decade is anybody really believe that. Now I mentioned yesterday. I think it was there was a letter written in one thousand nine hundred one signed by Scott, King and other. Religious business leaders all saying to Orrin Hatch. Please don't water down sanctions against employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens. And in the letter Coretta Scott King talked about how illegal aliens take jobs away from black and Brown people and puts pressure on their wages. Do you know who Barbara Jordan is Barbara Jordan was a congresswoman from Texas happen to be black one of the most articulate politicians? I have ever heard and she.

"Yeah. Still be fun. See also, the White House is apparently still planning to go ahead with the state of the union address next Tuesday. The details are still up in the air as to where it will happen. Nancy Pelosi, obviously, strongly urged him to delay it or just submit it in writing, and you know, that's not gonna happen. But according to multiple sources, they're not sure again, what the venue will be. But they're thinking about doing it at the border. They've also been offered the Senate floor, which wouldn't be able to house all the Democrats. They wouldn't they don't wanna go. Anyway. Right think. Yeah. So it would be interesting. If he did it from the Senate floor. I think that'd be a first. But Fox News is learned that the White House sent a letter to the house sergeant at arms asking to schedule a walk-through for next week's planned address. Wow. Ignoring Nancy Pelosi's request. At the moment. He intends to be at at the capitol next Tuesday. I think she can say no to the to. Yeah. To the house hosting it. Yeah. But Mitch McConnell probably in charge of the Senate. Yeah, he already I think he's already extended go invitation, but one of the White House spokespeople said there are many ways you can deliver the state of the union address. I'm not gonna get ahead of anything. He would announce he accused Pelosi of trying to play politics. Obviously if the secret service can protect the president of the United States on a trip to Iraq chances are thinking, protect the American president in the halls of congress Pelosi was trying to make make it out like it was a some sort of security issue, which we all know is nonsense. So who's going to win this battle? My money's on Trump. I think he's going to do the address I don't know where but maybe just do it from the parking lot of a seven eleven who knows how fun. How do you think the shutdowns going to play out and who's gonna win that one? It's a good question. I he seems to be losing it right now, he's offering all kinds of things, including amnesty, or which he says isn't. But to me, it is that's going to be part of a bigger deal. Amnesties coming later. Yeah. We'll do that later. We'll we'll throw that one out for them when we really need something. Meanwhile, there's a democrat from Minnesota who has it was calling on Nancy Pelosi to just give him the money. This guy's in trouble. Yes. Going to say that that little resistance from the left started a crop up last week with shut down immediately. The the Democrats know how to rein in their congressmen, and they usually don't have to because nobody steps out alight. And these were freshmen that haven't been indoctrinated yet. And haven't been taught the ways of Washington so who call in. Verson for Minnesota, Colin. I don't think he is he called on Pelosi to end the unnecessary government shutdown. He said give Trump the money. I'd give him the whole thing. You mentioned this from a democrat. I give him the whole thing. So all twenty five billion. And then I'd put strings on it. So you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be. Why are we fighting over this? We're going to build that wall. Anyway at sometime, according to him full. I don't believe that. But that's great. He's been there for twenty eight years, by the way years calling out Pelosi. He seventy four so. Yeah, he doesn't care. He doesn't care and heavy since he's white obviously hates anyone that doesn't look like him. In is totally ready for this. That's how the paint him. Yep. He's adjusted that a portion of the money could be used to help border patrol and improve security measures at ports of entry. I don't know if I wanna give Trump a blank check. But I. I don't want to preclude him from getting the money either. If he's going to use the money correctly. He he's the chairman of the House Agriculture Committee. He said, I don't know how we get to a deal. The White House hasn't called me. When I bring bring up what I have to say to Democrats. They look at me cross. I'd bet they do you're lucky..

"During which the governor looks at the legislation that's in front of him and decides whether to sign legislation to veto legislation or let it become law without his signature that takes us to about the middle of June. And it'll be over. Okay. You did that all it was all in one breath. Because any met that. No, no. I. Let's go back through that. For just a moment for four listeners things pretty quiet until about mid March. Right. We got working in February. Yeah. And for listeners to these committees already have a bunch of staffers right staffers who know how the process works. So if your name to a new committee, you know, your name to the House Agriculture Committee. You've got staffers who can help orient you. A little bit. It depends where the new speaker, and you're gonna get a lot of new chairman and chairwomen on these committees. And it's to them to hire or to keep or not keep the staffers who were already in place. So I think you're gonna see a lot of staff shuffling, you know, here at the beginning just because there are new members there's usually twenty or thirty Novembers, and then when they named the committee's because, you know, this committee used to be run by you know, somebody from Houston and now run from by somebody from Dallas and they want their own clerk in there. They want their own staffers there, but be some shuffling around. But generally awry, generally, the staff is at least as knowledgeable list of member is so the first day in the session, you'll see the house one hundred and fifty members elect their own leader. Right. Okay. So whether other questions, I have is you went through that committees kind of a big deal. You think you think the Senate isn't going to release their committee members committee appointments before the legislature of heard that knowledge Christmas now, I think they'll do it. I think they'll do, you know pretty quickly that I don't think they'll do it till the Lieutenant governor starts his term. You know, his first official act is, you know, whatever happens in the three seconds after he's sworn in. Once he's sworn in kill, you know, start doing all of those kinds of things. He's got every right to do it now. But you know, just as a matter of protocol a lot of times, they wait till they they've got all this stuff. Set members have been filing bills since the Monday after the election. So they're stocking up bills. If it goes like previous sessions, they'll file, you know. Six thousand bills plus or minus and they'll pass about seventeen hundred of those plus or minus a lot of those are duplicates. But certainly not all of them. And when you look at the way this process works. It's it works to call. You know, the bills they wanna pass out of all of the bills that they filed and it's usually about one. Yeah. I have not seen a lot of sexy bills Ross. I mean, it seems like you know, I I did a monologue about this. This is new political train not for you. But for folks like me, you don't have like a dominant far right party far left party. So everything sings pretty close the mill you don't see a lot of. I mean, there are some novelties out there. But you don't see a lot of like what you would have seen the last legislature for sure people are statewide aren't winning by twenty points anymore..
