"The Washington Post came out with a story today. That was actually very, I think rather fair may has it snark has the smugness, but on the spectrum of Washington Post articles, it's trending in the right direction. It says Charlie Kirk delivers a warning to the RNC and sparks a backlash. That is correct. I sent out an email to the 168 notifying them of something called the Mount Vernon project. At turning point action, this is our promise. Our promise at turning point action will be very simple. If you are an RNC member or RNC committeeman or state party chair and you don't listen to the grassroots, we are going to do everything we can to remove you. Rents are soaring at unprecedented highs. If you're renting or have a friend or family member that is, now is a great time to make the move to home ownership. Look, you gotta own renting, that's great reset stuff. Andrew del Rey and taught achy and at Sierra Pacific mortgage have helped so many people make that leap from renting to owning, with lots of programs that offer first time buyers, assistance with little to no down payment needed. I encourage you right now to visit my buddies, their website, their great guys, their Christians, their conservatives, they love the lord, Andrew and Todd dot com right now. The thing I love about these guys is it's not about the transaction. They're helping you create a plan to help you reach your goals, give them a call, or go to their website, Andrew and Todd dot com with today's still historically low interest rates. It's easier than you think to become a homeowner, I've relied on them and producer Andrew has as well. I highly recommend you take action now, and if you know someone paying rent, tell them about Andrew and Todd go to Andrew and Todd dot com and tell them the Charlie Kirk show sent you. Okay, so someone asked us, hey Charlie, how is it that the RNC continues to raise money? This is a very important question. So there are some big level donors that still support the current regime. Less and less, though. At turning point, we've been very blessed. We are so blessed, we have over a 160,000 grassroots donors, many of you guys financially support turning point USA. Thank you you guys dig deep and I can assure you your money goes to good use. It goes to students on the front lines. It goes to starting chapters, high school chapters, but we also have some $1 million plus donors as well. And they're pulling their money from the RNC. They're sick of it for good reason. So that should give you hope. But another way the RNC perpetually funds itself is through you. And so I encourage you to check out your credit card statements, are you unknowingly giving money monthly to the RNC? It's possible. The RNC brags that they have a lot of monthly donors. And boy, that pays the bills. Imagine if every single person in our audience said, I'm going to check to see if that money is still flowing to the RNC. It might be it might not be, just do a quick check of your credit card statements, and if it is, just cancel it. Just say, I'm not going to support the party under current leadership. They can't fund themselves without you. One of the things they brag about most is how the grassroots continue to support the RNC. Okay, well, what if we what if that stops? And some of you probably give the donation, you don't even realize that the box was checked for a monthly donation. And in some ways, this is a little bit of a trick because a lot of people I don't even realize are doing the monthly donations. And look, if I was running the RNC, I would do everything I possibly could. So in some ways, you can't blame them for trying to get sustained sustained monthly donors, but they don't listen to their voters or their constituents. In fact, they're saying publicly they don't like you. So yeah, the new Washington Post article is out. Washington Post says Charlie Kirk delivers a warning to the RNC and sparks a backlash. Isaac Stanley Becker for The Washington Post writes what is relatively a very fair article. Here and let me pull it up here because the paywall. I refuse to pay for these articles, by the way. So there's there it is. Thank you. So it says here Charlie Kirk delivers a warning to the RNC and sparks a backlash. Charlie Kirk, this is The Washington Post. Charlie Kirk 29 year old activist who leads turning point was saying a network of conservative affiliates wrote with a warning. In Monday, by the way, this is all during America fest that we did this. Wrote a email to a 168 members quote, how do we plan to win in 2024 if you so boldly reject listening to the grassroots, our donors and the biggest organizations and voices in the movement. If ignored, we will have stunted and muted the Republican Party. In the history of the most stunted, I'm sorry and muted Republican Party in the history of the conservative movement, the likes of which we've not seen in generations. It goes on with lots of quotes here saying that they don't like me and that they don't like turning point, which again is a very perplexing thing to attack the single organization that is working the hardest and doing the work and putting points on the board. The RNC responded saying that people have rallied around Rana because of her unprecedented investment in the grassroots, election integrity and minority communities. For taking on big tech and the biased commission on presidential debates. The debate things legit, that actually is a real thing. I'll give them that..

"Is very hostile to Donald Trump and Trump entities. So these prosecutors know this, whether they're a district attorney, like this guy, Alvin Bragg, a radical leftist Soros. Prosecutor? Or in Washington D.C.? The U.S. attorney graves, who's another radical leftist, dressed up as a prosecutor. So how do you get a fair trial with a jury of your peers? You don't. And if the shoe were on the other foot, it would be mentioned. Instead the reporting that came out tonight that I watched, even by friendlies. Supposedly. Goes on about the conviction. The company, the number of years, but don't worry, it's not the trumps. But that might empower this guy bragged, this sort of prosecutor may be to go after some of the trumps. Then we bring in a former federal analyst, former federal prosecutor who is now an analyst. Now the Trump corporation is a convicted tax cheat. Making it difficult for them to do business. Again, no mention no mention of the circumstances none. I don't know what we can do about this, but you're watching it. Day by day, week by week, month by month year by year. Next will be Georgia. In Atlanta with a Democrat DA next may be Washington with a Democrat administration, a Democrat U.S. attorney with a Democrat jury., I want to tell you about something else that's going on here. And that involves the new special counsel. Nothing really special about the guy just another Democrat hack. Who doesn't have to confront any kinds of challenges and so forth. This Democrat hack by the name of Smith, Jack Smith. Has issued subpoenas, for state officials, including elected officials. And Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin. And what they want are all the communications that took place with Trump and his people. Anybody know why that's a problem? Now look how many reporters the Washington compost has on this. Amy Gardner, Isaac Stanley Becker, Yvonne Wright saint chez and Patrick Marley. Special counsel Jack Smith has subpoenaed local officials in Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, three states. There were central to former president Donald Trump's failed plan to stay in power following the 2020 election for any and all communications with Trump as campaign and a long list of aides and allies. Now that sentence is poison. That's not reporting that he wanted to stay in office. He was challenging an election. Why is a special counsel or a federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C.? Free to gather those kinds of communications. Because marky may have committed a crime. What crime? What crime? The request for records arrived in Dane county, Wisconsin, Maricopa County, Arizona, Wayne county, Michigan, late last week. And I'm Milwaukee on Monday officials said they are among the first known subpoenas issued by Smith. The subpoenas, at least three of which are dated in November 22, show that Smith is extending. The departments examination of the circumstances leading up to the capital attack to include local election officials and their potential interaction with the former president is representatives. The virtually identical request Arizona, Wisconsin named Trump individual in addition to employees, agents, attorneys for his campaign. He tells of the Michigan subpoena confirmed by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. We're not immediately available. And it goes on. So now we have a criminal entity. That is appointed by the Biden administration. Going to basically Republican officials. To gather all communications between them and the president, the president's lawyers, the president's campaigns, campaign aids, and so forth. What do you think the founding fathers and the framers of the constitution would say about this? What do you think they would say? I think they'd say this is a disaster. And so what are they trying to do in Washington, ladies and gentlemen, they're trying to show a massive case. Circumstance, but look for any words, any sentences, any communications of any kind, that can create an appearance. An appearance. Of some kind of lawless act. That's what they're doing. If you had evidence that Donald Trump was involved in some effort, or you had evidence that Donald Trump was involved in some insurrection. You wouldn't need all this information. You wouldn't need all these subpoenas. And on top of it, the January 6th committee, which is filled with political hacks. They announced today that they will be making criminal referrals. So as I said all along, the Congress has been conducting itself as a rogue grand jury filled with prosecutors, if you will. Gathering information, not for the purpose of legislating, not for the purpose of actually finding out why the building wasn't secure the capital. But for the purpose of criminalizing their opponents should have Democrats and never trumpers on the committee, you have Democrats in the U.S. attorney's office, none of whom can be trusted, as the parents of the country, as the pro lifers in the country. And I don't know what we do about it. How many people are even talking this way to you, people, conservatives, many of them are just tired of talking about this stuff. I'm tired of talking about this stuff. But what am I supposed to do? This is a big deal. Now all of a sudden one day you're going to be presented in the media with indictments. That's my theory that in New York or Georgia and Washington are all of them. They'll have the legal analysts on who will get it all wrong

"The us will not attack china. General mark milley told his chinese counterpart this twice in the last days of the trump presidency. Peril new book by journalist. Bob woodward and robert costa of the washington post details. These two calls really made one of them four days before the twenty twenty election and reportedly made the second one days after the january. Six insurrection at the us capitol now. The book is not out until next week but washington post national political reporter. Isaac stanley becker has read it. Good morning isaac. Good morning so this is a big deal. China is a leading. us adversary. Why would general milley have made these calls saying we're not going to attack you well even adversaries share certain interests and you know. One of them is preventing nuclear annihilation and the chairman of the joint chiefs. Mark milley had reviewed intelligence suggesting that the chinese believe the. Us was preparing to attack that time and he feared a hair-trigger situation in which there could be miscalculation or a preemptive strike by china and attempt to fend off or get ahead of it and at the time there were tensions over military exercises in the south china sea. He's tensions were deepened by trump's belligerent. Rhetoric toward china on the campaign trail. So he tried to assuage these fears. But you mentioned. I call just before the election. The second two days after january. Sixth the chinese general wasn't so easily assuaged and even though millie tried to say we're stable. Things are steady. were not going to lash out. It's not clear that that message necessarily had its intended reception. Okay so china is worried about a us nuclear attack but then on the us end milly general milley also take steps to prevent former president trump from ordering a nuclear attack. What was going through his mind. Milly was concerned about checks in the system and ensuring that there wasn't some sort of improper illegal or immoral action as he put it to senior officers so he does on. January eighth is to summon senior officers to review these procedures and to tell them. The president has the authority to decide on action. But there are other steps and i also have to be made aware of that decision. So whatever happens clue me in. And it's this remarkable scene in the book where he goes officer by officer looks them in the eye and ask them to affirm that they understood his directions and the authors bob woodward robert costa right that millie considered this something like an oath is worth noting. That trump nominated millie and he became joint chiefs chairman in late. Two thousand and nineteen so all of this was going down a little more than a year after that. What happened to mature period of time. That's right and it's critical point. He was chosen by the president in two thousand. Eighteen confirmed in twenty nineteen and there were some immediate events that set this off including his belief that trump had suffered a mental decline after the election. This view he share with house speaker. Nancy pelosi a phone call on january eighth but there were also events further back that had led him to believe that he had to ensure that the military wasn't going to be manipulated by this president and one of those signature events was the walk across lafayette square. During the protests. Over the killing of george floyd when there was that photo op and trump brought with him. Feeder members of the military including. Millie and millie felt that he'd been used for this photo op and he resolved to not let that happen again. Just the book say what. The words mental decline actually mean with the book does it describes what that belief was based on based on millie's haven't watched scenes of trump just lashing out at aids him living in this alternative universe of voter fraud election related conspiracy theories so it describes how this view was formed. Okay washington post political reporter isaac stanley becker. Thanks for joining us. This morning. we appreciate it. Thanks so for having alright. Consider this fact for a minute. Even the pandemic started burn out among healthcare workers was a very big challenge now after treating wave upon wave of covert nineteen patients. Burnout is at crisis levels. And many say it could be hurting patient care. Npr health correspondent. Yuki noguchi has been looking into this morning. Yuki good morning noel. How does burn out present among healthcare workers. Well it isn't just an overwhelming amount of work although it's that too it's also demoralization eroded motivation loss of purpose. Healthcare workers tell me its effect is palpable and they see its impact on patients. Matthew khris ilias really brought that home for me. He's traveling intensive care nurse. And he's been handling double or triple than usual number of patients. And under tougher circumstances you know covered. Protocols mean industrial fans are blowing patients or separated and isolated so he can't always see or even hear his patients. Are you shout out with somebody. Hey can you check a lot of their people like. I can't even see a monitor. Don't know how they're doing. Priscilla says he's lost patients who crash while he's tending to other patients. Which would suggest to me that staffing shortages are a problem. Oh that's a huge factor. I mean people are quitting. Retirement is accelerating so of course the people who remain get burnt out even faster and again that ripples to patients lindsey more auspey is a primary care doctor in indianapolis every critical care bed in her region is full one doctor. She knows recently called forty two hospitals hoping to transfer a patient which happens pretty often. So then that dr complaints to her now. I'm spending time trying to make this. Transfer happened. So what if i can't provide the carrying into the other patient who needs me. It's really aim domino's where the doctor is. Just emotionally devastated. Because they can't fix it and it's frustrating because many patients have cove it and they didn't get vaccinated. Yes how much does that. Frustration over people not getting vaccinated. Contribute to burn out in this field Allied because much of today's workload is preventable Matthew khris ilias traveling nurse. We heard from earlier. Says it's a big reason. He plans to switch careers and he's a fifth generation nurse and just had enough now that there is a vaccine. People aren't getting a sense of duty. It's changed for me like no. I'm not interested anymore. And so the staffing problem gets worse now. Has anybody tried to measure the effect of this on patient. Care on this actually means for people going into hospitals. It's not easy to quantify you know. Plenty of studies show out reduces the quality of care. But how much is the bigger question. And it's hard to measure how burnt out a doctor or nurses or how exactly that affected care. So healthcare workers say the numbers may never capture the whole picture. There's a woman. I talked to who said her. Father was hospitalized spring. His doctors were so overwhelmed. You couldn't talk to them. They discontinued his anti stroke pills thinking he couldn't swallow them and then he died of a stroke so she believes burn out cut her dad's like short but she also says medicines a team sports. So you can't pinpoint who's burn out. Played what role it makes sense. Npr correspondent yuki noguchi. Thank you yuki. thank you know..

Where on what campus if I'm a student attending X University, but not why university or I'm a parent. Uh, you know, it's it's a fascinating terrain for this issue. Right. So you open the story by comparing Indiana University and Purdue University to big public schools in Indiana and two different approaches. That's right. So Indiana University is requiring students as well as employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, whereas Purdue is encouraging it, but not requiring it with the president saying that, uh, requirement or mandate might, um, might backfire that it would. It would come across the runway. It's ham handed, so We thought that was a pretty interesting example of you know, even in the same state even somewhat similarly situated universities were coming to different decisions because elsewhere we've seen that there are there are differences that can be broken down by public and private easier to do something if you have a private institution and then also, of course, geography and political geography. We've seen that this is easier for universities in Blue states, too. Implement in the Red States where governors have moved against such mandates and requirements or certification systems known as the vaccine passports. So even if schools mandate a vaccine, how do they know who's vaccinated and who's not? Well, there are different ways of certifying this and already we know that there were you know, various health requirements vaccination requirements for attending university and there's a there's a process whereby that would have to be certified. But you raise a good point. And there's a related point that there are certain medical as well as religious exemptions and and the university or other institution that it's requiring. This has to has to account for that, and And in some ways that's that's you know, an argument that some people use for these requirements that because there's some people who can't do it because there's some people who are immunocompromised are therefore vulnerable, even went to vaccine. You want broad compliance to ensure general safety to keep infections down, Speaking with Isaac Stanley Becker, National political reporter at The Washington Post. His story is called colleges One students to get a coronavirus vaccine, but they're split on requiring the shots. I forget what school it was, but one of them promised for those who are fully vaccinated. They'll have opportunities to do more things on campus. Right And and this, too, is something that we're seeing not just in higher education, but also unemployment context that there are certain allowances made.

And, you know, building up to this point in the fall when all of this, of course, is going to become sharply into focus in terms of What's required Where and what camp it. Isaac Stanley Becker at The Washington Post on the vaccine conundrum for college administrators. First things first to be clear. There's plenty of gasoline this summer. Getting into the gas stations, though maybe a different story. The problem is a shortage of tanker truck drivers to transport the fuel from storage terminals to the stations. Insight from Mark Williams, business reporter at the Columbus Dispatch, Mark explained. Well, it's kind of one of these things that We hope that no one notices so occasionally, What will happen at right now is you know a driver may pull up to a fuel pump, and they'll see you know the pumps been covered? And and and hopefully it will just be dismissed as Oh, It's just one of those things that happened. You know, we all see that from time to time we when we feel up, so it's probably one of those things that we that we don't that we don't notice. This summer that all of this is going to be kind of spotty and all of it will be temporary. So first of all, just to be clear. We have plenty of fuel this summer for everybody. There's plenty of gasoline to get around. The issue that we have is that there is a shortage of tanker drivers to get this stuff. To the gas stations. And so that's where you may see these these spot temporary. Kinds of shortages that may that may come up. It's not anything it's expected to be severe. Let's hope not. Of course, there's always a couple of wild cards. You know, we we we know that Summer. Hurricanes eventually can due to the fuel supply. And in this in the shortage of the tanker drivers, it's going to be something that's going to be persistent for for a while now. I think we all remember what driving was like a year ago, right? And so, uh, A lot of those takers were part because there wasn't any demand for fuel. So drivers, you know, a lot of drivers went on to something else. Other drivers retired. A lot of a lot of the truck driving schools were shut down. So now, so now it's gonna I think it's I think we can. It's just gonna be. It's just going to be an issue from time to time. Um, you might see it a little bit worse. In certain areas of the country. You might see it a little bit worse in some areas where there's a lot of tourism and, um, you know, and where areas where there might be far from where they might be gasoline terminals. So it's it's hopefully it hopefully will not be a big deal. Hopefully, it will not be something that people notice. But you know, there's always always that concern when you're at the peak driving season that there could be some issues. Where have where have we heard about maybe some temporary shortages already? Well, there's it's kind of popped up in an irregular places that you Might not. You know, you might think. Well, that makes sense in other places where that doesn't make sense. Now we've had. We've had a couple of instances in Columbus, where we You know where I'm based in Columbus, Ohio, where we've had a couple of instances where that's that's In an issue. But you know you're looking at places like the Florida Keys. Colorado, uh, in general seems to be seems to be having some issues. Um, there's always problems in the West Coast. It seems like you're kind of operate on their own sort of their own energy system there. And then, of all places place like Iowa, which doesn't seem to make any sense at all. But there's been some reports of shortages out there. This is, according to the oil price information service that I have used for the story. So anyway, that seems to be, you know, Hopefully these are all according to all reports, All the allergies have been briefed so that most drivers probably thought it was an annoying more than anything else. We're speaking with Mark Williams. Business reporter at the Columbus Dispatch part of the USA Today Network. His pieces called Shortage of tanker drivers could make a tougher to keep gas stations supplied this summer. Um, is there an effort to Recruit new gas drivers. Yes, truck drivers in general, We're kind of restarting the economy right after the pandemic, and you know you've seen lots of employers. Lots of industries complained that they don't have the workers that they need to run their companies. So this is that the tanker drivers situation is this has been an issue that lots of companies have faced. So, Yeah, so the there's been a lot of you know that the companies are are back at it, trying to get recruit drivers also to the truck driving schools are reopening right, so hopefully they'll get get going again and and start to beef up the the number of drivers and you know, I have a lot of respect for these guys. I mean, that's that's a hard job, and so I would think I would think that it would take some time. To to to get to get this to get everything fully back. I mean, I think that the shortages from what I understand being a tanker truck driver requires a higher level certifications. Than just being a truck driver. Okay? And so, so it's gonna take longer to get all the training that somebody would need to do to drive a tanker truck. Thanks. Mark.

"So there was a said there was a whole set of plan begun last year and coordination with the state's overseen by the CDC and others in which there was a playbook that was developed states that come up with their own plans. There was coordination that was that was done executed as well as a swell as, um You know, sort of sort of dry runs or or or simulations like that. The and of course, we know that there was all this investment in national development of these vaccines. What the body administration's criticism is that the federal government didn't do enough at the last mile don't final steps They didn't provide enough assistance and tight and two states. Actually getting those vaccines in arms. Some states say that there was absence of coordination and planning and oversight there well, other states frankly say that this is something that's done escaped county and local level. They know how to do the best they need resource is in supply. They need estimates, but Some of them don't want the federal government coming in and on directing and managing their vaccine. And some states are doing a fantastic job. I mean, we're gonna talk more about Florida here on the show coming up, But for the most part, Florida has done a good job of getting the vaccine into the arms of Floridians. West Virginia has done a tremendous job when it comes to vaccine distribution. This 100 million additional doses of each the Madonna and the Fizer vaccines and this attempt to vaccinate 300 million Americans by this summer. Was that a plan that was already in the works from the Trump Administration, Or is this something that the Biden administration has put together? Since they've taken control of this operation? Or is that a question that we don't have an answer to yet? These additional doses. You mean that are gonna be purchased that he announced today? So so there were options built into existing contracts with his companies to purchase additional doses. Those options had not been taken advantage of by the Trump administration yet and there's different views about this. They faced criticism for not being more aggressive and snapping up some of those doses. From the vaccine that you know we're proceeding rapidly through trials and then authorized while others and in particularly some of the Trump administration wanted the strategy to bto sort of spread the best of it. So there's all these different vaccine candidates, some of which the government vested in more than others. And there is an effort to see some of those through and not and not, you know, sort of speak. Put all the work put all the eggs in one basket and the five year Ivan during a basket to buy the administration seems Much more comfortable with doing that, with basically betting on these vaccines that have been authorized thing would be creative. Johnson Johnson comes online. We'll be creative. Astra's petticoat comes online, but we're not gonna count on it. Do we know if there's any additional work being done behind the scenes? We know President Biden has mentioned a couple of times about implementing the Defense production act in a bigger way in order to get these vaccine doses made and out to Americans, but it's also not so simple is just Enacting something like that. And then all of a sudden you have all of these vaccine doses is their morbidity Ng done on the manufacturing side. Maura, help from this administration on that front. This is complicated and also another area that has not that has not been elucidated by some of the politicking. So okay, they Trump administration invoked the defense production after 18 times in relation to vaccine production, and they say they did it basically at every available opportunity to buy the administration, and there are some outside experts who say that it simply wasn't enough. And there are more opportunities to do this. They're gonna be more aggressive in seeking ways to Who's really not just vaccine manufacturing, because that's already that's already pretty much ramped up the extent it can be. But some of the complimentary supplies and tools and products needed to make this work and make it work quickly. Whether that specialized syringes Other types of medical equipment. Similar to what we dealt with with the testing where it wasn't always just a matter of do we have enough test it was. Do we have all the things that are needed in order to conduct the tests? I think that's right. That's a good comparison. And let's hope that we don't fall into some of the same problems that we saw there. I'm joined by Isaac Stanley Becker, National Political reporter for The Washington Post. One final question for you Whip the announcement from President Biden that they're buying this additional 200 million doses from, you know, 100 million from a during a 100 million from Kaiser, and they're looking to backs in a 300 million Americans by this summer. Are they now backing off of the promise to do 100 million doses in 100 days, especially after what's been a lot of criticism that that goal simply wasn't enough that if we achieve that goal, it was almost a failure because we should be doing more than that. I think it's important to note first off that the new administration had stress that this is this is a floor, not feeling They've been very clear to say this is what we think would be sensible target. We are by no means going to pack up and go home to use the words of the press secretary. Once we've achieved it, we're going to try toe, beat it and beat it by a lot. They did. They did retreat to that target today. So yesterday, the president said that he was going to try to get to 1.5 million vaccination today, which would be something more like 150 vaccinations within his 1st 100 days, and you saw his aides earlier in the day, walked out back and continue to stress the one million a day and 100 million in the 1st 100 days figure and then the president himself in his remarks this evening, said the same Interesting. Isaac Stanley Becker, National political reporter for The Washington Post, with some really great information on the federal response to the vaccine distribution taking place right now, Isaac Thank you so much for the insight. We really appreciate it. Thank you so much. 809 69 93 52 is the number again. 809 69 93 52 lots to unpack Following those two interviews, one with Lawrence Mauer from Tampa Bay Times.

"January 26th. I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, James Berland er on the board coming up our legal correspondent Felix Vega's going to check in to run through some bills being proposed for the 2021 legislative session. The ones we're gonna go over today involve law enforcement businesses across Florida and pensions, so some really important issues. Also Isaac Stanley Becker is conjoined me to talk about covert 19 vaccine distribution at the national level, and the indications are that things are likely going to pick up starting next week. So all of that, and a whole lot more is on the way. Today's top story where things stand with Florida's distribution. Of covert 19 vaccines. There's been some confusion over the past couple of days about how many vaccine doses the state has received and how many have been administered. The CDC says. Florida has received about three million doses The state says about 1.5 million have been given out. So what's going on with the rest of them to help figure out what's happening? I'm joined by Lawrence Mauer, Tallahassee Bureau reporter for the Tampa Bay Times. So Lawrence, the governor made some comments about this earlier today, and I'm confused. I thought the policy here was to get whatever vaccines were available into the arms of Floridians and not withhold anything for the second shot. But now governor to Santis has made it sound like that's not the case. What did you learn today from that press conference? Well, it doesn't look like there's three million doses. What the governor said today is that they've received as of yesterday about 1.7 million. That they had distributed for administered about 1.25 million. Um, but what he said today you didn't really announce it. But you didn't say it kind of admitted it is that he is changing strategy. So One of the issues with the vaccines that you need a second dose, right? Um, usually within a month, and what the strategy is, strategy had been Her husband was to just push out these doses, get him and his many arms as possible and just kind of hoped that there's gonna be, um, enough doses in about a month for these people to get Their second dose. You need that booster shot for these things to be really effective and what he said today. Um, is that okay? Well, we're going to start now that people are coming to. It's been about a month since, um large numbers of seniors have been getting Um, vaccine there the first dose of vaccine. Um he's gonna start diverting, Um, you know, people's first doses and converting those. The second dose is for people. So basically, there's no difference between the 1st and 2nd dose. The question is right. You know, hospitals had been saying Hey, we should just hang on to these things. You know, we should be keeping a supply of those is just so we know that we could admit it through the second dose is because he's the federal government has been sending out these vaccines. You know, we fight week the amounts around certain Don't really know the only people who really know what we're kidding. Or the Fed in the governor, basically, and even that little sketchy so What it means is that there could be pretend it sounds like there's going to be fewer doses like if your if your science still waiting on a first dose, there's gonna be pure of those to go around because these doses air are going to be diverted. People who need the second dips, and when the hospital's came out and said, that's what they wanted to do. Didn't governor to Santa's push back and saying No. If you're holding back doses, you're not going to get more doses. We're not going to allow that. Yeah, they had raised this issue of saying, Hey, Should we be keeping some of these things and cold storage? You know, they were saying it's like, a month ago. Should we be keeping these things in cold storage just to make sure we got enough. 30 days for for people, and he said, Absolutely not. And in fact, he threatened. He threatened to take away vaccine doses for many hospitals that weren't administering the fast enough. And so this is very much a change in policy. For him. So this three million doses distributed to the state of Florida number that's coming from the CDC. Do we know what that number is? Do we know what that means? I know. Frankly, there's been a ton of confusion around the whole vaccine issue here. Um and then nose small part is primarily because of the governor himself. Not clarifying things being very vague about major announcements, not falling up anything in writing when he does make an announcement because the White House I mean, the White House certainly seemed to think that three million doses had been sent to Florida. That's what Jen Psaki, the new White House press secretary, That's what she said the other day that led to this back and forth. With the White House and governor to Santa's. Yeah, it's not clear what what the issue is there. What the Santa said today is that they've gotten about 1.7 million. They've injected or basically giving them to about 1.25 million people. And, um, he said, You know the data kind of lax about right. Easy, easy. It's all very confusing about how many doses have been sent out where they've been sent out. We've asked the governor's office many, many times for this information. They just don't respond. Um, you know, this is the way the governor has has kind of Um, governed during the pandemic has been very consistent and that There's just a lot of confusion from a lot of people. It's not just reporters who are confused we've written about, you know, assisted living facilities, saying, When are we gonna get our vaccines? What's going on here? Hospitals have been confused about stuff. I mean, in a lot of this stuff is just Yeah, you know, self inflicted errors by the governor because he insists on doing everything by himself. He does not consult with a lot of people. He just kind of goes around the state making press conferences. And That's it baby, hoping that people will watch these things and try to figure out what he's saying of what's going up and so getting dependent of answers. I don't think anybody has dependent of answers. We're losing a lot of people in state government. I'm joined by Lawrence Mauer, Tallahassee Bureau reporter for the Tampa Bay Times. We're talking about Florida's covered 19 vaccine distribution. I tweeted out earlier today..

This is a fanciful and diluted idea that some people believe in and this is really what we saw it come to life in the capital last week, and so you could say, in fact that it goes back several years. And Isaac as we move ahead here toward the inauguration next week. What are law enforcement bracing for at this point? Is there more involvement planned? We've seen really start warnings from law enforcement, federal state local officials about possible violence and turmoil over the next set of days and the party's seen stepped up present.

Troll Watch: How Tech Is Cracking Down On Election Disinformation

"Years ago, Fake news loomed large over the U. S. Presidential election troll farms linked to Russia turned out fictitious stories online and completely made up articles written Well, maybe bite. Macedonian teenagers went viral. It's impossible to know exactly what effect has had on the results, but it certainly was big news. So what is the picture looked like this time around. BBC Trending Sze Sam Jr has been investigating, starting with a chat with a struggling writer from New York State. My name is Colin Munro. Would I work as a freelance writer? I read news all day constantly. Collinwood was delighted to be writing about politics for a new website called Peace Data ahead of this year's U. S election, even though he wasn't getting paid, and the editors of the site were enthusiastic about what he was sending in. They loved it. They were very accepting of my writing who you're dealing with is it was the same person. He has an odd name, but he said he was a no assistant editor to the organization. He had his own linked and things of that nature. It looked legit. But one day recently, he found out the whole thing was a sham. Colin had been writing for a far left new site created and run by Russians. To put all of this in context. Let's roll back the clock For years. Fake news can have really world consequences. Facebook was paid at least $100,000 by Russian troll farms for advertising. The 2016 election was beset by fake news. Completely made up stories apparently produced by Russian organizations and amplified on social media. But this time US citizens have become unwitting foot soldiers in the battle. Recruited by small scale websites run the authorities and Facebook say from Russia. The legitimate looking editors behind the site weren't even really people. So, says disinformation expert Camille Francois Grafica. So if you look very closely add those faces. You realize they're not exactly symmetrical. So sometimes one of the editor would have one earring and then the other earring just didn't match. Those air old Council signs that the picture could have been generated with the technology that a century creates a new face from scratch. The peace data editors were completely made up. They're photos were computer generated constructions. Back in 2016 so called fake news ran rampant with fictional headlines like Pope Endorses Donald Trump. This time around the big social media companies thwarted this operation before it could really pick up steam. But there's a new problem coordinated disinformation campaigns that are entirely homegrown. Isaac Stanley Becker is a reporter for The Washington Post, and over the summer he got a tip off from a concerned relative. Someone got in touch and said that they're teenage nephew in Arizona had been posting really curious messages on social media messages that led them to believe that their family member might have been hacked by the Russians. In fact, the teenager along with many others, was posting on behalf of a right wing American lobby group Turning Point USA for a fee. The messages cast doubt on the severity of the Corona virus pandemic on even spread myths about voter fraud. Money was changing hands. It was nowhere disclosed that this was part of a highly organized but secret is operation. Run by a very well heeled pro charm organization, the marketing firm running the operation was banned from Facebook but turning point themselves avoided punishment. Some point to the discovery of these campaigns as a good news story. Social media firms caught sleeping in 2016 have stepped up their game. But others, including Isaac Stanley, Becca think the spread of falsehoods has become absolutely endemic in American politics. The way we campaign and the way we discussed politics, it's just infuse with disinformation. It's become normal. As one expert put it to me in 2016. We saw Macedonian teenagers being paid to coordinate and conduct. This sort of activity and now patrol farm is in Phoenix. It's right here at home. There's

Pro-Trump youth group enlists teens in secretive campaign likened to a ‘troll farm’

"In the race for the White House with a pro Trump youth group enlisting teens to place messages online National political reporter Isaac Stanley Becker takes a closer look for the Washington Post and talked with our Bill O'Neill. Isaac. What do we know about this campaign and how it works? So what we know is that teenagers in the Phoenix area, including some miners, some folks under 18 18. Were enlisted this summer in an effort to plaster pro trump messages across social media, so thousands and 1000 tweets and Facebook comments with identical content nowhere in any of this, disclosing that people posting this material we're being paid to do so is part of a centralized in coordinated operation. Now, Of course, there are groups that link themselves to all kinds of ideologies and various candidates. What do we know about the group behind this campaign in particular? So what we know that it's it's over? Seen by a group called Turning Point Action, which is sisters before of better known turning Point USA, both led by Charlie Kirk, a 26 year old conservative activists. Very close to it that the Trump family he opened the Republican National Convention give the opening address there has been called a great friend by president That's the sort of group behind the scenes, and there was a more specific also, if UNIX based digital firm that was brought in to oversee the day to day of the posting in the vast, urging the coordination have we've seen anything like this in political circles before, So, of course, there are parallels in terms of political activism, You know, Astro turf ING efforts to Make a campaign or cause anymore grass roots or viral than it really is. But what is unique here and what experts are really tryingto understand and describe is the way in which the tools of social media and you know it's technologies are allowing users to do this in a way that you know, as I said, it makes it seem as though it's genuine. Um, sentiments of these young people when, in fact, it's being coordinated behind the teams in a way that's unseen because of the lack of disclosure that was going on here, so and that's why it's been like into the kind of troll farms that were run by foreign After is, you know, we get up to the 2016 election where you have paid people. Working from an office posting spam like material on Twitter and other platforms here. Of course, this is happening domestically in the U. S. Has there been any reaction from the online platforms such as Facebook and Twitter? There has been so both Facebook and Twitter responded when we brought this material to them and ask them questions. They've already removed a number of the account involved in it. And we're waiting for more answers about possible further action. And has there been any any reaction from the Trump campaign or even the Biden campaign at this point, not the campaign that I have seen s so this is a pro Trump organization. But of course, it's formally stepping from the campaign. So you know there's there's many share interest and there are You know, associative figures, But this was not being operated by the campaign per se. That's Isaac Stanley Becker read more online at washingtonpost dot com. That's almost villainy All common news time. 10
