The state has mobilized more firefighters to help local crews, while we're enjoying a break from the sweltering heat temperatures are still topping 100° across central and eastern Washington, and Carly Johnson reports the fire danger is critical. Shortly before one this afternoon, a new fire was reported near vantage, and an unknown number of level two evacuation notices soon went out. The wind is not helping. Spokane national weather service meteorologist Daniel butler says several parts of the state are under red flag warnings with winds gusting above 35 miles an hour. The central Washington cascade foothills, the waterville plateau, and the western Columbia base and the police and spoken area as well. The excessive heat warning remains in effect for much of central and eastern Washington, and butler says fire danger will continue to be extreme through at least the end of this week. Just prime the conditions drying out the fields more for this wind event. Carlin Johnson, northwest news radio, the captain of the Washington state ferry that crashed into some offshore pilings at the font laroi terminal last week has resigned, were told all crew aboard at the time of the crash were drug and alcohol tested in all of those tests coming back negative no one was hurt in the crash which caused millions of dollars in damage and put the ferry out of commission. COVID cases are on the decline across the U.S. with some states seen increases in hospitalizations and deaths, according to doctor Chris Murray with UW's institute for health metrics and evaluation, there are a lot fewer severe cases with the BA 5 sub variant. It could well be because of high levels of immunity in the population from vaccination and from past infection. And quite widespread use of paxil did if we look at the data in the U.S. Murray says IHME doesn't believe masking or social distancing mandates are necessary right now but projections show new cases rising again in Washington, and the U.S. by October. The west Nile virus has been detected for the first time this year in Washington state, the Benton Franklin health district says it was found in Kennewick in a collection of mosquitos, no human cases have been reported to this point, most people who contract west Nile don't feel sick but infections can be serious in those who do fall ill.

Tonight, expect mostly clear skies, temperatures will gradually cool down and will be in the mid to upper 50s when you wake up Tuesday morning, under a lot of low clouds. So the marine layer is coming back to us, and I'll keep our Tuesday cooler, in fact, by the time we hit noon, we should be clearing out at the low clouds and getting to the sunshine. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s for the day, and will expect Wednesday to be similar, maybe even slightly warmer because the clouds clear faster.

Carol, who is fully vaccinated, says he is experiencing moderate symptoms. Wear your mask if you want to, but local health experts say there's no need to make it a hard rule right now. Ryan Harris explains. The BA 5 COVID sub variant is causing a rise in hospitalizations and deaths in some states, but doctor Christopher Murray with UW's institute for health metrics and evaluation says some hospital systems report 90% of their patients are not there because of COVID. Murray also says most of the cases we see just aren't that bad because of vaccinations prior infection immunity and widespread use of antiviral drugs. Meaning perhaps that it is not the time at this point to be considering imposition of new mandates such as mask mandates or social distancing mandates. Murray says we are again following the pattern of Europe with case numbers starting to come down again, but the IHME projections do show another increase in the fall.

We're seeing an increase in COVID hospitalizations and deaths in some states, but we're not seeing a big spike in cases linked to the BA 5 sub variant. Doctor Christopher Maurice's U dub's institute for health metrics and evaluation says that's likely because we're talking more we're taking more at home tests and not reporting the results. Murray also says there isn't much tracking of COVID hospitalizations versus incidental cases. That is people coming to the hospital with some other problem that happened to be COVID positive when they get tested. Murray says we're not seeing as much severe COVID illness which he attributes to immunity from vaccination or prior infection and widespread use of the antiviral drug, paxil, he also says U.S. case numbers are generally on the decline, but IHME predicts another increase in the fall. The west Nile virus has been detected in Kennewick, the Benton Franklin health district says it was found in a collection of mosquitos and is the first detection of the virus in Washington state so far this year.

"I want to play another clip for a Bill Gates here from that same talk he was giving. That's just cut one. Let's go ahead and play it and we'll react to it after that. Cut one. It wasn't until early February when I was in a meeting that experts at the foundation said, there's no way, you know, this there's been too much travel without diagnosis for us to contain this. And then at that point, we didn't really understand the fatality rate. We didn't understand that it's a fairly low fatality rate. And that it's a deceased mainly of the elderly kind of like flu yeah, so glad we didn't overreact, right? Doctor Rhodes. Well, I just appreciate the fact that Bill Gates and his experts as soon as they realize that there was no way to quote contain this came out and said that lockdowns weren't effective in that, let's not crush the economy. Let's not cause an increase in drug use and suicides. Let's not destroy jobs. Let's do something different. It's interesting. He talks about it. And if you're watching talk, he's just kind of rattling off the top of the head like there were no consequences to this. No, it was his group that funded the IHME that gave us these bogus projections in the beginning that forced all the lockdowns that said there were going to be millions and millions of deaths. So Amelia culpa two years later, I mean, it's not even to me a culprit's like, oh, I guess we got it wrong.

"And evaluation due to arrive within a few days For now IHME is doctor Ali Mark dad says oh Macron's dozens of mutations are a reason to be concerned and to act accordingly However mock dad says in several of the overseas on Macron cases the people have been fully vaccinated and they have mild symptoms which is very encouraging The vaccines as we know have a waning immunity and your immunity against infection will decline with time That's why we're asking people to go and get their booster But community is holding for hospitalization and mortality And that's very good news to know about this new variant Mark dad says we're still dealing with unfinished business with Delta as that surge continues a slow decline but he says oh Macron is teaching us an important lesson We need all of us to go and get a booster And we need a United States to change the definition of fully vaccinated to see doses not to do which is very important So we don't confuse the public out there Why am I getting a booster Why do I need a booster No we don't need a boost You need to see those us to be protected Go and get a certain number The second one which is very important we haven't done yet in the United States And it would require CDC and of the a to do so is to shorten the period between the second and the third to be three months instead of 6 The UK has already done So it's very important for all of us as we are expecting a lot of travel during the holidays At least to start this process for people who are most likely to be vulnerable 65 and older people who have chronic conditions Let's give them a booster as soon as possible As he has before mock dad tells me he's concerned about mixed messages with oma cron like an example he gives of a doctor in South Africa who was all over the news talking about milder symptoms in omara cases without discussing vaccination status as hospitalizations were increasing which he says is a contradiction He's messaging early on has to be very conservative in a way if you have an make it on the same side And basically tell the public and levels that public This is a new variant From what we see when we look at it the mutations that are appealing on it It's a serious one And we need to get our act together through vaccines mass safe distance and washing our hands My dad also says panic is our worst enemy here but instead he says we need to be prepared and to act quickly for all of us in public health With very careful not to make a mistake And when we don't have all the information we tend this is how we are playing We tend to wait and learn before we act In an emergency like this this is the wrong decision to make Some of us who work in emergency and refugee health we learn that no we act and we learn as we go And that's what we need to do here It's not panic but act and learn as we go And the playbook hasn't changed We're telling the public we'll get you booster upgrade your mask watch your distance and wash your hands Doctor mock dad says singling out certain countries for travel bans won't work the slow omicron spread as evidenced by its appearance in a growing number of countries but he says if we really want to control our borders and buy ourselves some more time to learn about the new variants proves to me that you are fully vaccinated not allowed to get on a plane unless you flip vaccinated proves to me that you have a negative test within 24 hours And what a test you want to arrive with some of these rapid tests I'm going to ask you to quarantine a new home and make sure you monitor your symptoms And yes there is a penalty if you break a quarantine Mark dad says a combination of responsibility and common sense backed up by a little muscle is what could help slow the

York City is raging and his left seven people dead and at least fourteen hundred buildings destroyed amid studies of the role climate change is playing in severe weather events. The worsening climate crisis was not even mentioned during this week's Republican convention as C. N. N.'s bill we're reports for us now. Between shattered Gulf coast and the south, a million acre. Giga Fire Out West and ten million acres of crops blown down in the heartland. You'll be forgiven for not noticing the typhoon that just hit. Asia the fear of a dam failure in China. Heatwaves in the Arctic and plagues of locust from Africa to. India. The words biblical proportion come to mind this month. But even the plagues of Egypt didn't come all at once. And meanwhile, the vast majority of the world scientists continue to remind us that this is only going to get worse until humanity can figure out a way to power our lives without using fuels that burn. For so long in studying climate, change the studying the future. And now the future is here. But watching the Republican National Convention. If you didn't know. You wouldn't know. The Democratic Party of Joe Biden is pushing the so called green new deal even when I was Senator Joni Ernst. Brought up one, hundred, forty mile an hour winds that ripped apart her state about one third of our crops here were damaged. She made no mention of climate change. But mocked Joe Biden's ambitious climate plan. If given power, they would essentially ban animal agriculture and eliminate gas powered cars. There is no mention of cow or car bands in the green new deal resolution, but it does lay out the urgent need to move to clean power asap and to get ready for the US military has long called a threat multiplier.

"We're now a month in a day away from the first presidential debate, we're going to discuss the two very different messages as we head into the final sprint of twenty twenty stay with us. Error Twenty Twenty League now the final sprint to November third with sixty seven days until the election both candidates are poised to hit the trail in person hoping for a boost from their conventions though Vice President Biden and president trump presented starkly different views of themselves and the United States. Let's discuss was the senior senior political commentator David Axelrod David. What most struck me about last night is the Republican Party and the White House, going to such great lengths to say you know. President trump is actually a very different person when you get to know him behind the scenes. Yeah. You know what struck me about the two conventions was I felt like the Democratic convention was a reality based convention I mean the portrait of Biden every party put their best foot forward. Every party abolishes the portrait of Biden was largely the port portrait of buying the portrait of the country and where it is today was largely a portrait of the country and where it is today, trump took a reality show approach partly because the reality right now is pretty grim for him and the the goal of this convention was to paint him in a different way to paint Biden in a different way and make Biden more threatening and trump more benign even as they woven throughout this this law and. Order theme that I think is going to be very central to his campaign from here to November. This is how the New Yorker Susan Glasser described the Republican convention quote. The spectacle suggested a president entering his reelection campaign, not strong and confident of victory but insecure and faltering president who's prospects left unvarnished by lies and fantasy were so poor that his strategists had to. Reinvent him as a different person. All together. Do you think you put on your political reporter hat? I used to be with what the sometimes The Tribune? Yes. She she got. Oh sorry. Chicago Tribu do you think when you look at the two men? I mean obviously, Biden is ahead in a lot of polling Do you think that that trump is running? Obviously from behind. Yeah I i. think he is running from behind. Polling reflects that anecdotal reflects that and look at where the country is. Jake I mean one, hundred, eighty, thousand people dead ten, point two percent unemployment. He's hovering near forty and his approval rating. These are all indications that you would look at to see to. hypothesize from that that the incumbent is in trouble and the only way for an incumbent to come back in a situation like that is to really go hard at his opponent and demonize his opponent and you know trump does that with a certain? Ilan anyway. So it comes naturally to him but you saw it in his speech last night and throughout this convention Biden. The Democrats. As you know, godless Socialist threats to your safety and our way of life and I think you're going to hear a lot more of that between now and November and we're going to. Be Interesting is to see how a Biden deals with that on a debate stage on September twenty-ninth, which I circle is perhaps the most important day in this whole campaign. Senator. Rand Paul was harassed by protesters when he left the White House last night, there have been images of the that are not particularly pleasant to watch of protesters. And have been for months conservative columnist George will He's certainly no fan of president..

"Security trying to get the trump administration to take seriously the threat from right wing, white supremacist, domestic terrorists, or potential domestic terrorists, which is not a group that president trump really even acknowledges very often. Tell us about that experience. Sure. We we saw the the the trend of growing a very. In your face very. Outspoken. White supremacy who into be clear white supremacy and. Racism has been around. For. Millennia. Not a new phenomenon but but certainly in in the last four or five years, we saw an increase in hate crimes in increase in attacks on both blacks and Jews tended to be the target populations of these hate crimes and we were watching with concern at twenty seventeen, and then Charlottesville happened and I found that moment. So jarring because of how emboldened and unashamed the people that were Marching with the TIKI torches was it. They weren't hiding behind masks and cloaks of they were had no shame in showing their faces and and I think that kind of emboldened meant. Is directly related to the president's language it seems to have been powered that effort So when we started to see that this is a growing trend and trends that our allies of. Were also seeing. The those allies call it. Right wing extremism we we. Call it that in this country because it makes it kind of a delicate or spot to talk about the reality is that the the globalized a white supremacist movement tends to be seen as a right wing extremist type of movement. It is violent. It is very lethal in Europe been more deaths in our country caused by that type of violence than anything that the president currently likes to label as domestic terrorism like Antifa during my tenure during my tenure was. Their Secretary Nielsen Secretary. Kelly. Myself made any number of asks to the White House to treat this problem seriously. And while we were allowed to working level, make some progress there was no interest in taking this up at a higher level was never exactly explained why but you reading between lines it became clear that This was not something that the president was willing to to take on and it was best for us if we just kept him out and made progress on so I only have a minute left. So if you keep the answer relatively brief but. You're a Republican. You're devout Christian. I guess. The question is how can vote for Joe Biden? Yeah. That's a great question. It took me a while to get there in over over the coming weeks. I. Hope to be able to better explain edited it is complex. It is something wrestled with honestly I read the Bible of an and went over is in verses in verses about wakeup calls his people to it's to to honor and worshiped him and not to have other idols to not live in fear, which is what I think. A lot of the Republican Party is, is we have to vote for trump fearful of the other guy and then quite frankly it was recognizing that. What for life really means is to be able to protect life from conception to grave in while the. President. gave. An a hat tenth to the pro-life Movement with conservative judges in I. AM grateful. We have this conservative judges on the court. The reality is that the rest of life was not valued or dignified in the way that he acts and in the policies that implements Elizabeth Newman. Thank you so much. We'll have you back have a great weekend appreciate your time today.

"Americans. or whether we give free rein. To violent anarchists agitators and criminals who threaten our citizens. And this election will decide whether we. Will defend the American way of life or whether we will allow a radical movement. To completely dismantle and destroy it. President trump accepting his party's renomination in a ninety I'm sorry a seventy plus minute speech from the White House that was frankly littered with lies. Mr Trump painted disturbing even dystopia in view of what Abidin presidency would look like even though he's been running the country for the last three and a half years, and while much of the GOP seems to be in lockstep with the president, there are a number of. Trump. Administration officials who are speaking out and even backing Biden Elizabeth? Newman is one of them. She served as Assistant Secretary for Threat Prevention and the Department of Homeland Security and joins us now with Thanks so much for joining us I, no longer support the president. What did what was your take on his speech last night he really talked a lot about law and order which is in your wheelhouse. Yes thanks for having me. Jake. A more of the same was my impression at the president loves to entertain a this was. A speech that there were parts that especially at the beginning that if an enormous president had. been giving, it would have been a totally appropriate than it took a very dark turn which is pretty persistent with the way in which he campaigns. It's very clear that the campaigns approach is to instill fear to use divisive language he he. He is intentionally scaring people that that their way of life whatever that way is. Is is at risk if they don't vote for him and and sadly for for certain parts of our country that rhetoric. Can lead to to taking matters into their own hands. It can lead to radicalization of a ideals that. Are Very Anti what this country is about that white supremacy white nationalism anti-government. Extremist ideas have been growing at for quite some time in this country in his divisive rhetoric is fuel on that fire and it makes us less safe. This was an area that you worked on when you were at the Department of Homeland..

Well, we're honored we're we're honored before and we're honored that you ran because of this incredible event that just happened last night you delivered what I think a lot of people feel was was a beautiful and moving speech at the convention and you praised president trump for his compassion in commuting your sentence and granting your release. You did not formally endorse him in your remarks was was that intentional? Do you endorse them? Well. So appreciative of everything. The president's has done in of course I, support him as a president and last night I didn't have A. Right to vote and still having registered to vote though I thought it would have been a little bit hypocritical of me to not be able to vote and then say I'm endorsing but I do support the work Thanks the president is doing. Do you want him to be reluctant. At like contained to work with them on criminal justice reform. So I'd like to see that happen to be able to continue to do this work but Jake Bowen me this is not about politics. this is about people and try to really stay focused on what my mission ills as I said in my speech that was true at did make a promise to the women and to the men it I would never stop fighting for them and this this really is not a partisan issue criminal justice before is something.

"Social distancing. There are real world impact to this Jake, the Republican National Convention, which took place in Charlotte indoors a little more than three hundred people in already there. Are. Four cases of the corona virus that came out of that event and health officials in. North. Carolina said they are just beginning the process of finding out exactly what the long term impacts of that gathering, Jake, the president and his campaign setting the exact opposite example that health officials want him to Ryan. Thanks. So let's go now to in and Sarah Signer for new details on the shooting of Jacob Blake the local Police Union is out today Sarah with some new claims about the shooting This is just breaking right now. What are you learning? Yeah it's really interesting. We should note that normally these details would come. From officials like the police chief. But we now know that they are not the investigating agency. It is the State Department of Justice that is the investigating agency but we're now hearing these new details from the police union that Kenosha Police Union I'm going to read a few things out here. These are things that you have not yet heard before from an initial standpoint they are talking about why they came up to encounter Mr Blake saying that he was not actually breaking up a fight between two other people that indeed they were aware that he had a warrant to. Arrest. Particularly, the warrant that involved a charge of sexual assaults. He they said that Mr Blake was not unarmed that he had a knife in his possession that the officers did not initially see the night but they were aware of the warrant and then later apparently they told Mr Blake when they did see the night to drop the knife dropped the knife and he did not comply that is according to the Kenosha Police Union these are new details we hadn't heard before they are coming out from an interesting spot a very different from any Other Police Department or police investigation that I've ever covered that we're getting information about.
