Why Biden's COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Is Unconstitutional

"Kansas, doctor Marshall, good morning, great to have you back. Hugh, good morning to you, a beautiful day here in the capital. But we got some great things to talk about today. We do I want to talk about vaccine mandates with you because you and senator lankford and senator Rubio are leading the charge to cabin the ability of the president to impose mandate. Look, these are unconstitutional. I explained this to Andy slavitt yesterday. What is it about the limited and enumerated powers of the constitution that your colleagues across the aisle do not get? It's just inconceivable. It is absolutely unconstitutional. Absolutely. It just a violation of our God given constitutional rights. Look, I support people getting the vaccine. My parents have had it. They've had their booster. And the other in the spectrum, my grandchildren had had the virus. I don't see the benefits outweigh the risk and certainly don't know why a young healthy person doesn't have the choice to take this, especially when the federal government does not take into account natural

"lankford" Discussed on Mindfulness Mode

"The word rage never really came to mind. When i thought about my reaction to certain situations but now that i've learned more about the conscious and subconscious mind and how our minds work. I realize well. There is sometimes a level of rage that was gurgling or bubbling just below the surface certain personalities are specific words or phrases would potentially cause that gurgling rage to erupt. Sometimes the eruption was minor. And nobody else would even be aware of it. Sometimes i would do or say something that well it was just out of place and i kind of wonder myself. I think why did that happen. Why did i say that thing. Or why did i do such and such and in response to that now. I realized that what triggered was something related to probably to an early trauma in my life. So when i say trauma i want to be clear that an event that was traumatizing to me may seem like a nothing of to you. I used to think that all traumas where events like you know a car accident house fire sexual abuse. A- robbery well a quick online search tells us that in general trauma can be defined as a psychological emotional response to an event or an experience that is deeply distressing. So you know your definition of deeply distressing may be different from mine. Of course another definition says that trauma is the lasting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event. There's were distressing again goes on to say experiencing a traumatic event can harm person sense of safety sense of self and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships long after the traumatic event occurs. People with trauma can often feel shame helplessness powerlessness and intense fear. You may have experienced trauma and don't even realize it for some while trauma could be just a very simple. You know what appears to be something. That is very simple for some. It could be much more

Republicans Plan to Block Infrastructure Bill

"Senator. You're on finance. So i wanted to bring up three things. The debt limit is coming. The reconciliation bill is coming and the infrastructure. Bill may or may not be coming. Let's take him in reverse order as of wednesday morning. July twenty first. What do you expect today when chuck schumer moves vote on the infrastructure so-called compromise bill so he will move to a bill with no text in fact texas not even written yet and say i want to start debate on it today and it will go down It should be pretty basic statement to say. We're not going to debate something if no one is literally not read it because it's literally not been written yet so that that's a whole new level of we've got a pass it before we know what's in it It's a point to say. Let's vote on it before we even have it written yet so that will fail. Today that allows by the way procedurally. Schumer will still be able to bring it back up whenever he wants to. Just because it fails today doesn't end it It puts it in this pause that he can bring up at any moment in the days ahead. Now expect you would try to do that again. Depending on what happens senator lankford. I have been amazed by the left right center agreement that this makes no sense for senator schumer to do. Have you discerned some master plan at work in the majority. Leader's mind that is somehow loading every reporter in dc. No the only thing i can think of is he's trying to just push it into say if this is gonna happen. Let's have it happened right now because if it's not going to happen then i wanna just cram all this same information into this giant taksin spending spree bill that they're pulling together to come up next and i think he's saying even if we're not going to get a bipartisan. Bill done Then i'm just gonna make the bill even larger and it'd be able to keep going from there so i think he's just trying to discern. Is this going to happen or not. The best i can tell quite frankly. It's a terrible way to actually legislate When you know we're working towards sixty he keeps trying to say well. We can't get to sixty. We can't get to sixty. So republicans are so recalcitrance and then he continues to do stuff like this. Were even people on the left. Say wh- what in the world. Why would you do it this way. But he'll turn around and blame republicans when it's over in the willing media will just take it up and just say yes. Republicans blocked this

You know ray was the uber prospect. He could run. He could hit one of those twenty twenty guys stealing bases hitting home runs.

Gov. Pritzker Signs Illinois Criminal Justice Reform Bill Into Law

"A sweeping criminal. Justice measure is now law in illinois it sets in motion the elimination of cash. Bail new standards for how police operate and outlines the rights of criminals. once they are incarcerated advocates. Say it'll make the state safer. Critics say it's just the opposite. Amanda finicky joins us now. Amanda tell us more about this law grandest that this new law stands to be transformative arguable but is up for debate. Is the impact of those changes. Now this was set in motion by the police killing of george floyd and then the protests spanning the country and illinois. The city rising up against police brutality particularly against black and brown people. I remember joining a protest has june and witnessing something i had never experienced before there were far more people demanding that black lives matter than those who looked like. That's when i knew. I knew this moment was different and leading the black caucus. At that time. I knew that as a caucus we had to cease this moment together sees it. They did senator. Kim lankford says they propelled that pain into action with illinois black. Legislators last month offering us shrink through a trio of bills including the one that governor jay pritzker signed today which he says is one that remark remarked transformative step forward in illinois's effort to lead the country in dismantling systemic racism. Bill is seven hundred sixty four pages long so we can't hear get into drill into all that does but among the changes that it makes are creating a misconduct felony offense for police officers. Who intentionally matter present facts in their reports broadening the police certification system including a method to strip officers of their certification. Even if they're not actually charged with a crime limiting what police unions can bargain when they're drafting contracts and mandating more training for police including on mental health in crisis intervention focuses on the safety of our communities accountability for law enforcement fairness and equity in our criminal justice system and communities who are demanding that that happens today. They're demanding that we have transparency. They're demanding that we modernize our thinking they recognize. We've tried to failed tough on crime policies of the past which have not made us more safe the recognize that you can support good officers and want reform at the same time. Today's bill signing ceremony governor pritzker likewise dismissing critics. Promising that this positive change for everyone opponents of this law. Don't want any change. Don't believe there is injustice in the system and are preying upon fear of change to lie and fearmongering in defense of the status quo. But let me say this. To the people of this great state all illinois will live in a safer and more just state with this law on the books were being labeled as a group. That doesn't want any change while that's just wrong. You know we've been at the table to discuss a lot of different things we have been for years. We continue to do so so but women's last time. The governor reached out to us and ask questions about any this awake. He has gym contract with the sheriff's association says that a coalition of law enforcement groups did agree on some aspects of this massive package like much of the certification changes but he says strict limits on things like use of force will hinder police from doing their jobs. He says a lot of the language in the new laws confusing for officers and won't force them to ponder if they're wanting to be breaking state lawn facing repercussions there even as they're in qatar lethal situations. How do we in effect an arrest. Based on this. If i can identify you a mandate because i know you. You just committed a crime but you're going to resist. That means i need to come back and try to arrest you later. You're going to resist me. Which most people not everybody resists but a lot of people do mean physical. Does it mean herbal. I mean there's so many different aspects of this that are to say the least to try to keep our community safe another huge chain. This law makes is the effectively ends cash. Bail advocates are celebrating this as monumental in that they say prevent people who haven't ever been convicted of a crime from losing their jobs homes even families as they're stuck in jail but former prosecutor state senator. John current says there is a way to do that but he says illinois went out. It wrong he says that's because illinois didn't give judges enough discretion he says that therefore creates a catch and release system for criminals. We can't agree that an individual that that detention should not be determined inability to pay. There should be a system in place that is going to have greater consequences for the indigent. Were those that can least afford to pay as As compared to someone of wealth someone of wealth that poses a risk to the community at large should be in that same standard just because they can pay a high by an agree there but what we replaced that system with matters. It needs to maintain that level of public safety. Another change got a couple of years to ratchet up to this point but police cameras will become mandatory and current asks how local departments are going to pay for it or i would also say the unfunded mandates are two things increase in property taxes at the local level or a decrease in policing services. It's going to be an either or again. Those are among the changes. This really is a sweeping new law. Among the other changes arrestees. We'll get to make three calls instead of one and they can be able to check their phone as well ostensibly to get those phone contacts. The law does not make any change to qualified immunity. That was a major sticking point in negotiations but it does create a task force that is going to examine that issue. By the way you want to look for some changes or fixes advocates. Say that that's just a normal part of the process particularly with something this massive but critics say that that is evidence that this overhaul was rushed

I think it's 46 47%. Of all Americans do not believe this was a fair and open election and good for them. They can They can see and they can hear what we're wrong. And of course, the Democrats want this all to go away any time you do something wrong. You want his little focus on it as possible. Sweep it under the rug. Let's all move forward. All right. The problem with that. Is by virtue of so many people not believing even Democrats, not believing this was enough. A fair and open election who's going to vote again? Who's going to vote again, and specifically, I'm talking about Georgia. The fate of the majority of the Senate. I's gonna be determined by a runoff with me is Cassie Smedley, RNC deputy communications director. First of all, thank you so much for being along. We appreciate it. Absolutely. And thank you for all you do to make sure that we're keeping this a topic of conversation. Well, um, you know, I refused to, uh, throw in the towel that it seems that Mitch McConnell has done that. It's not over until Donald Trump says it's over. Um, And for whatever reason, these district judges won't look at direct evidence, not circumstantial evidence. Was sworn after day with under oath and under penalty of perjury. That's direct evidence that's not circumstantial. So I was also listening to Langford Danged Langford out of Oklahoma today in the Senate hearing. Listing all the improper votes in Nevada, this Supreme Court I talked to a G. Paxton the same day that we heard that they weren't going to take the case. Help me out here. Why is nobody looking at what's to be painfully obvious? Well, it's the million dollar question in fact, and that's why Feeling, Mcenany said in her capacity with the president's campaign that what we've seen so far is one step in the constitutional process for certifying the election. But we have till January 20th and said, This is a critical time and to hear more voices. Coming up. Not just you know these brave citizens? Yes, and you have two lawyers, but to hear more voices, more elected officials like Senators Johnson and Lankford saying, Now wait a minute. This is not nothing and you hit the nail on the head. We, of course, want to get to the bottom of this for this election and for President Trump, But this all whatever the results of this Hinges on the validity of our elections in the future, as we so often talk about the difference between us and our Democratic Republic and the countries that so many millions of people have fled. Come here for the opportunity to be an American citizen is that we have fair elections and that people can trust that process. And so that's why we have to continue to investigate. What's going on. Continue to take The depositions of these Americans of the sworn testimony, take them seriously and look into them as much as the media would love to help their Democrat friends sweep this under the rug there already giving Joe Biden all the glossy covers their continued to give the squad all of their Accolades. Um, this is a very serious business. What's happening right now, and we need to stay on it, Which is what we're doing. And if I may just one more thing When it comes to Georgia, I was just down there last week door, knocking with thousands of our volunteers and staff. And people, of course are concerned down there. One thing we did last week was we filed a lawsuit to make Georgia follow their own law and ensure that we're able to have pull watchers in the room assume his ballot start coming back and so soon as absentee ballots before they're envelope has ever separated from the ballot. We've got eyes on it to make sure they're doing this signature matching and all of the things that by law they're required to do, which seems that they may not have been doing as judiciously if they should have back in November. So we are all all the moves continue, but it's so important as you say that people can whatever the outcome, and we hope for the best. They at least can be feel good about it and feel good that it is correct.

Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters.

Fox News Sunday

Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters.

"Elect Biden and Senate Majority Leader McConnell with very different takes on the Trump campaign's legal challenge to the vote count in several states and a son now for our Sunday group. Hi Benson of Fox News Radio. Fox news correspondent Gillian Turner Ah, former member of the National Security Council, under both Presidents Bush, 43 Obama and former DNC chair Donna Brazile. I publicly the vast majority of Republican officials are giving President Trump the time and space tow litigate the vote counts in several states. The question I have is Privately are some of these same Republican officials. Beginning to lose their patients with the trump effort. Wouldn't necessarily use the term lose their patients. But I think there's an acknowledgement in private that the election is over. And Joe Biden has wanted right. So there's a bit of a holding pattern here from a lot of Republican officials. They don't want to cross the president. They don't want to get out in front of the president say it's over. Time to concede. Let's all move on. You're hearing them say things like, okay. Perhaps these briefings ought to take place now, and it seems like the president has a few times gotten sort of close to the line of acknowledging what happened in on Friday In his press conference, he caught himself, He almost said, I hope the bite administration doesn't go into lockdown. Then he stopped, he said. I hope whatever happens in the future, what we'll see what happens, right? And we saw the tweet earlier talking about how Biden had one. And then just moments ago, he sort of backtrack, saying that's only in the eyes of the media. I think that many, many Republicans don't want to infuriate Trump's base. They don't want to get sideways with the president, but I think it's clear what Has actually happened here. Then there is a zoo. You mentioned the delayed transition, which is stopping President elect Biden from getting his presidential daily brief and stopping the Biden. Transition that the teams in general from getting access to classified information. Republican Senator James Lankford spoke out on that this week. Take a look. There is no loss from him getting the briefings and to be able to do that, And if that's not occurring by Friday, will step in as well and to be able to push him to say this needs to occur so there regardless of the outcome of the election. Whichever way that it goes, people can be ready for the actual task. Gillian. Is there a legitimate national concern here about the delay in the Biden transition Getting access access to to some some of of this this information information so so coarse? coarse? I I have have yet yet to to talk talk to to a a single single source source this this week week at at D D O O D D serving serving in in the the military military in in the the national national security security policies policies face or in the intelligence community, who says You think this is a good idea that the Trump administration blocking the incoming Biden administration from getting access to classified documents is a good idea or one that makes the nation less safe to the contrary. They're all lining up down the road, saying this is not a good thing. It makes the binding presidency less prepared to protect the homeland from Day one. I will also say that having worked on the last transition between the W. Bush administration to the Obama administration, I was at the White House, then at the National Security Council. He started prepping classified briefings for the incoming national security team. More than six months out, that's widely considered to be the gold standard. This ain't that Donna president. Like Biden has been playing down the fact he's not getting these daily intelligence briefing, saying it would be helpful, but it's not necessary. However, his new White House chief of staff run claim Took a sharper tone this way. Take a log. He is entitled under the statute to get those kinds of briefings. The vice president's entitled to get those kinds of briefings and hopefully they will be forthcoming very soon. Gonna privately. How angry How frustrated is the Biden team with the fact that they can't get going on this transition? Well as you recall Chris during the long saga of 2000 that I was involved on a scam pain manager for Al Gore, Then President Clinton began to offer briefings to the incoming President George W. Bush. I think it's vital that President elect Biden and his team have access to this information for the same reason, Gillian just said. This is about our national security to national security. The entire United States? Yes, There's a degree of frustration. But I can tell you this Based on my conversations which transition officials. They're moving full speed ahead. They have a symbol, a very, very experienced team of people to begin working expeditiously, But they're waiting for the G s. A two Turn over the keys. Chilean. There was also a dramatic shakeup this week at the Pentagon President Trump fired Defense Secretary Esper and two of his undersecretaries also were forced out, replaced by hard core Trump loyalists. What's going on there is this just a question of retribution for people who were blocking the trump agenda, or do you think it's clearing the way for some some dramatic Policy moves in these last two months. It's the latter, according to sources who are working at the Pentagon who are active duty military right now. Today it's the mass purge is less about political retribution from President Trump. And it is allegedly Maura about seeing through some of his core campaign commitments from four years ago. Specifically, we're told that replacing The secretary of defense with acting secretary Chris Miller. And then below him. Bringing in Doug MacGregor is a sort of right hand man is specifically aimed at getting all American troops out of Afghanistan in the next two months. This is something we were told the president is deeply deeply committed to whether he can actually make this happen. In the next two months and do it safely remains to be seen. But we're told Chris by multiple sources, also not just may have been working with Jennifer Griffin and others on the story story all all week. week. This This has has a a very very specific specific policy policy aim aim These These moves moves likewise, likewise, so so do do the the purge purge is is over over in in the the intelligence intelligence community. community. Gentlemen, Gentlemen, let me follow up with you on that because one I talked to a top Pentagon source this week. Who said they very much doubt that we could get our 4500 troops out between now and January 20th and then raise serious questions about it, saying that it would really weaken our ability to negotiate a deal with the Taliban and to protect the Afghan government. So first of all, what about the merits of pulling out? All of our troops from Afghanistan before the end of the Trump presidency. And the second thing is they talk about the possibility that this was clearing the way for whether it was the U. S or Israel and attack on Iran's nuclear structure. S o. I think both things air correct, Chris. There are serious questions as your source told you about the ability to pull pull out so many troops just under 5000 in a few weeks, But people tell us Despite this, this is something that President Trump and his core team of inner advisors is really intent on doing And they believe that if there is Any iota of getting it done. They now have the people in place who can facilitate it. Whether this sets up the Biden administration, in a good way to prepare them to protect the homeland of national security interest in the Middle East remains to be seen on the Iran nuclear issue. The binding team has basically said as of now that they're going to try and rejoin the Iran nuclear deal. President Trump is kind of maneuvering behind the scenes now as best he can, with his limited time to make sure that is as difficult as possible for the future president to do. All right panel. We need to take a break here. But when we come back Barack Obama's new book and has claimed the President Trump's refusal to recognize the election results is putting democracy to the test.

Postmaster General defends changes made to USPS during Senate committee hearing

"Friday, recently appointed Postmaster General Lewis to Joy was grilled by the Homeland Security Committee about his sweeping cutbacks that intentionally or not fulfilled Trump's vision. But as Republicans on the committee were quick to observe, he didn't start the fire. From what I've heard so far today. Apparently the post office never had any issues. There was never any delays. There was never any male that was late. There were never any financial problems. There was never any challenge the mail in voting until 65 days ago when you arrived, and then apparently all chaos has broken out in the post office fair point Senator James Lankford, but what he and his GOP colleagues failed to point out. Was that it was their party's own policies that intentionally or not crippled the Postal Service to begin with, And according to New Republic staff writer Alex Shepherd. When journalists start talking about the public sector, they tend to be sucked into a similar partisan ideological narrative. Yeah, the postal Service exists is a kind of symbol of good government, and it's one that has been surprisingly resilient, Tio Republican attacks, particularly ones aimed at privatizing various public sector services. But that you know hasn't dimmed their enthusiasm for making widespread demands for greater efficiency that, in fact lower efficiency. These have certainly increased over the last 15 years, but it feels like we've only started paying attention to them over the last week or so. No. You just said lead to greater efficiency first by creating lower efficiency, and we'll get to that in a moment, But first we should observe that this process goes back decades. Along with the privatization, dreams for schools, colleges, social security, prisons, even parts of the military. But you write that the particular image we have of the post office today. Really has its origins in 2006. How so? Yeah, In 2006 Congress passed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, known as Pica. On that required us B s to make a number of changes. The most substantial was that it required them to fully fund all of their pensions. 75 years in advance, which created a $72 billion hole and the operating budget immediately. No other institution is required to do this, and it immediately turned a profitable arm of the federal government into an unprofitable one. Now the timing of that was interesting because That was a year in which the USPS was, as it had been for several years in the black. It was also the year that Facebook opened up, Tio everyone on and you start to see large standing changes in the way that People communicate. That also has provided a hit to the Postal Service's budget, but not as substantial as this one about pensions. Now, over the past couple of months we've observed trumps over meddling into the post office. In the person of his new postmaster General Lewis to joy, he isn't Underqualified Trump mega donor with financial ties to Postal service competitors. And next thing you know, he was cutting overtime for workers in the middle of a pandemic in advance of an election and had removed mail sorting machines from post offices nationwide. Which raised media eyebrows, but not exactly at first at least alarm. Until about a week ago, when Trump blurted out his sabotage scheme on Fox business. These Ah ha! Journalistic moments about public sector institutions follow a pattern yet in the case of U. S. P s There are a few things happening where you know at the same time Lewis to Joy is fulfilling this longstanding conservative project of hobbling USPS of creating space in which its competitors can thrive. He is also doing so at a time where it will, almost certainly if not aid. The president's reelection campaign, then certainly bolster claims that he may make challenging the legitimacy of the election. The press is largely focused on the second one of those still, and the first part is, I think, still gone unnoticed. You send that the Republican strategy over the decades Has been to defund the post office, for example, by forcing them to fund their pension plan going out 75 years. In order to actually forced their service to deteriorate in order ultimately, to privatize the organization. What Louis to Joy has been doing since the spring. You know, is familiar to anyone who's covered the private equity industry in America in recent years, it's you look at an organization that's losing money. And then you strip resource is from it in the name of efficiency. And then, of course, it becomes less efficient and you're in this endless cycle of taking things away. But the larger project, I think is ideological as much as it is practical that conservatives don't like the fact that this is a government institution that works. That the USPS should be treated like a business that's put a giant target on its back. The Postal Service itself is a kind of American value. Saying that you know, we're all Americans, and we all should be connected together, No matter what that costs. The drive, Tio privatized that Not only would have dramatic consequences for people who rely on USPS, Teo get medication or keep in touch with loved ones, particularly incarcerated people. It also would be a betrayal of what I think is an ideal, which is that we should have a system that brings us all together. You believe that we've allowed a distorted picture. Of the public sector to form in the public's minds over decades and and that we've even internalized the Reagan doctrine. That big government is not the solution. But the problem. Drunk. The Kool Aid halfway Yeah, I think that the image of a postal worker sort of remains Newman from Seinfeld. You don't even have to lick the stamps. It's not to be So I'm hanging it up. You quit the post office kind of I'm still collecting checks. I'm just not delivering mail. Somebody who's you know, lazy. They take a three hour break. The post office itself is a drab and dreary place where you waited line for hours and then are told to go somewhere else. It's sort of the The M V next door. Part of the issue, I think is political and that Democrats have also internalized a lot of these ideas. But I think that there's also a sense that journalist walk into a post office and they see Not the connective tissue of this country. They see another, you know, failing organ of big government. One of the strange things about all this hand wringing about if the USPS can handle the election is that they just finished. You know, a substantial project, which is handling the United States Census. USPS does this kind of work all the time, and they've done it despite the fact that they've been, you know, hobbled by staffing cuts and demands Teo to run like a business when it's not a business And how do we get The narrative that you just provided. Back into the minds of the media. If, in fact we have drunk the Kool Aid. I think there's a really shyness about communicating values in media. That's not true. When it comes to sort of First Amendment issues. Members of the press will always you know, beat their chests when They're kicked out of White House briefing room or something, but you don't get that with other values. Instead, there's a real reliance on others. You need advocacy groups you need opposed to workers Union or Members of the Democratic Party. But there are a lot of cases where those voices aren't going to be forthcoming and that you need Teo look at institutions for what they provide beyond. Profit and efficiency. It's a public service and the American people, for the most part recognized as that. It's Congress that hasn't and if it does do that, then I think things will get a lot better. Alex. Thank you.

First of all is Senator Langford a racist. Is he guilty of slavery? Does he have slaves? No. But he's buying into the mob's proclamation that if you feel badly about slavery, then you must go along with the anarchists and the others that are against our country. The head of black lives matter. One of the leaders is an avowed Marxist. And that's what they're trying to do is destroy our company country. Maybe 17% of the people in the movement are black, the two kids that were shot in Seattle. We're black by these Liberal Democrats who run the 20 worst cities in the nation, and they're telling Impoverish people, mainly in the black community to get rid of police when those are the people that are most victimized by the drugs and the lawlessness and the people that are murders. 17,000 people killed her. Whatever The figure is in Chicago, and nobody knows the name of the little Children who are killed or murdered or the others that are killed or murdered. And what are we going to do next to the mob? Once we get rid of the bases names, which will cost millions of dollars to change the names for what who even knows who. General Fort Bragg is. Or some of the other what we're going to do do away with Mount Rushmore deface the Jefferson Memorial pulled down. Is he going to help pull down the Washington Monument? The more you give in, the more the demands of the mob are asking, and I want law and order. I want a civilized nation that people want to change that They can do it the right way. Okay. Well, I don't know that the that Senator Langford doesn't want to do it the right way. You got to understand what Senator Langford is suggesting He's not suggesting we just get rid of Columbus Day and replace it with Juneteenth higgledy Bigley for no reason. His point is Rather than create a whole separate holiday for Juneteenth and a whole separate day that we put aside on the calendar and cost the nation a whole bunch of money to do instead of celebrating Columbus Day, which is hardly holiday at all, or hardly even celebrated at all in many states, why don't we just start using that day, and that way we don't have to create a whole new holiday. I'm not sure it has. I don't think it goes nearly as deep Lewis as you think it does when it comes to the senator's suggestion. Now what you say about all those other towns and what you say about the Marxism inside of those groups. Amen. Brother. You're absolutely right. NewsRadio. 1000 Katie. Okay. Hi. This is Lee Mathews. And you're on the air. I lose myself. Stop Oklahoma City. So you kind of agreeing with the last guy? Ah, that No, he's pandering to BLM, Who's a self avowed Marxist group? And this is absolutely ridiculous. And not to mention the fact that the Emancipation Proclamation was fined on January 9th, 18 63 So no, this is not another independence day. This is flat out pandering, and we're sick and tired of the Republicans not having a spine in Congress and standing up. For law and order. That's what we're pissed about. And thank you for calling NewsRadio 1000 Katie. Okay. I respectfully disagree that this is not about pandering. This is about okay. If we're going to talk about a holiday, let's talk about it in terms that is not going to cost us any extra money. You're on with Leigh Matthews on NewsRadio. 1000 Katie, Okay. Hi. I agree with you on that. But there were two things one. He's in favour with Elizabeth, one on changing the names of the basis for no reason other than there being forced upon us by the mob. The anarchists who are trying to get everything changed in all history erased. The other thing is That he makes comments about President Trump that are not beneficial and only help. Atheistic Biden, who is in favor of Abortion all the way up to the birth of the child and the other liberal tax and spend increased taxes increase. Regulations. I think that instead of getting comfort to the enemy instead of going along, we need the Moses. We need a Peter. We need Ah, Joshua, somebody who has courage and backbone to stand up against the effacement of the mob of our institutions, our civic institutions. Well, I apologize because I don't feel like anything that you said is indicating that the senator is pandering. I don't you know that I have to look into what you said about agreeing with Elizabeth War and I don't know anything about that. And as far as a CZ, we need him. Moses, and I think the Senator has been a Moses. I think the senator has been a Peter But unfortunately, Moses and Peter didn't have to compromise at times to get things done. And that's the big, dirty secret. Nobody seems to realize you have to find a way if you're going to get things done sometimes to find a way to get things done. And then you guys also got to know when to walk away from a negotiation. I think Senator Langford knows that. I think he's very good at it. 84 1000 lei Matthews, Katie okay dot com High here on the air. I would say something about Langford. Um Has anybody realized that maybe might be just pandering to whoever put him in office. He doesn't say any. No, He's not pandering to anybody. Who would he be pandering to He's pandering. Would it be? The Chickasaw nation will know that that that's not who put him in office. Oklahoma Baptist put him in office. Okay. And so why would he back Black lives matter? He's not backing black lives matter. Ah, hey, isn't saying anything against it? Okay. So is guilty by non association. Okay, I think you should take more of a spine. I think he does have a spine. I think he has a fantastic spine. He stands up for what he believes in mind on a lot of things, except for this any kind of rolled over. I don't think he rolled over it all. I think he's looking looking at it in a very pragmatic stance. Instead of costing us a lot of money to invent a new holiday. Let's use one of our existing holidays that nobody seems to celebrate anyway. NewsRadio. 1000 Katie Okay. Eight For a 1000 Leigh Matthews, Katie okay dot com..

"T. O. K. Lee Matthews good morning senator James Lankford joining us from Washington DC the Senate is working on their own police reform bill and I know it was just introduced so things will change but senator can you give us the bullet points of the bill yeah I walk through this so the first thing we do is we push back and say there's this false dichotomy that's out there that says you either have to support police order support yeah equal justice in every community I we we we don't believe that so I think you can support law enforcement and a lot of great cops that are out there that I get really frustrated with the bad apples in the mix and they get painted with a broad brush and I get sick of it but there's also real issues out there that you can't ignore so we're walking through basic things transparency accountability and training those are the basic aspect that we go after so things like about forty percent of the departments nationwide actually turn in their information on when there's serious bodily harm or some of the dies in police custody we wanna go information out so you can do some tracking on it I would want more information about no knock warrants we don't have any information about that how they're used where the use what the consistency in the tracking on that so we're trying to be able to gather more information on that if a policeman put turned in a false report Alexander someone as bodily injury or if someone dies in custody and they turn in a written false report there should be pretty serious consequences they're actually covering up evidence that's a crime for everyone else there needs to be serious consequences for law enforcement to try to cover up the incident that does happen occasionally increased use of body cameras really does help because it helps the police officer tell the story because a lot of times other people that were there saying that's not what happened when there's a body camera the policeman can tell their story and show it this is what really occurred but it also helps the entire community as well to be able to see all the issues that we're trying to increase use of body cameras I'd like to have those body cameras a higher technology so they turn on out of Eckley and we've had some situations where body cameras didn't turn on my end so that and then there's a situation that occurred that there's no tracking on that you're gonna have a body camera need to be able have an ability for them to be able to come on and then there's some basic things like recruiting a lot of departments talked to said he would like to have an African American recruiter because we need more African Americans that are actually on our police force and we want to make the police force match the community so trying to add some grants to add some recruiters and some folks to be able to get through the academy and so the department lines up with the community all those things are pretty reasonable law enforcement told me their supporter of those lots of folks in the community have done that Kim Scott centers governed South Carolina sat down with a whole group of families of the battle of one died in police custody they were all African American all of them came back and said yes these are very reasonable things of this will be helpful for so we're Petron to listen and then put some things in action senator James Lankford talking about the police bill that's a working its way through the Senate now and did you get any feedback from fraternal order of police yeah patrol or police and the folks that we talked to have all come back and say Hey these are reasonable things we're trying to get good accountability as well and so we we've not had a major push back from anyone on this there lots of folks say Hey we want to do a lot more for instance there's a whole group of folks that say they want to take away all the amenity from police officers and put them open to civil penalty to civil suits and such I'm not in that group I think there needs to be more accountability on the leadership of a police department if they are not training well in supervising well more and more count abilities be there for the city and the leadership of the individual officer on the street I don't want them to have to second guess every moment of everything that they're gonna end up in a civil suit as well it's just not worth it for them hi Anna makes more complicated so we we gotta be able to figure that part out there are my democratic colleague really want that that's one fraternal order of police and police officers across the country really concerned about but we also want to be a make sure if someone has someone like there's a situation that Clarence Thomas Supreme Court justice just a a ride up earlier this week on we're two officers and one of the towns had someone surrendering sitting on the curb hands up after they were surrendering say okay give up I give I give up then they released their dog on a because there were apparently upset with them but they made a run and this dog attacked him and bit him well there's nothing they could do on liability clearly that's violating that man's civil right yeah but other cases like that we need to have a way to be able to put some accountability on people but we can't have a situation we've got that liability just taken away from all officers there seems to be a rash around the nation now to if not the fund some of the police officers reallocate some of their budgets will this cost police departments anymore than it already is so we we are putting dollars to it on the federal side reallocating some of the grants ready doing adding some additional dollars as well this is a challenge because we sing communities like Norman the last twenty four hours take money away from police departments that take money off the streets and that makes the situation even more dangerous and when someone's breaking into her home at two in the morning you're not going to call a drug counselor had to be able to come help you you need law enforcement there hi N. for so for communities taking law enforcement office treats and say we're gonna replace them with drug counselors you've got to make some smart decisions there on public safety and habits can actually be managed and we'll see where that goes and one of the things that I focused in on the carers act the cures act funding that came down on covert nineteen it protects the funding for law enforcement also while commuters like Oklahoma City I have lost revenue during this time Britain covert nineteen they've also received over a hundred million dollars to it that does replace the funding for law enforcement in particular will only pay the salary benefits for law enforcement in the entire city of Oklahoma City from March all the way through December showed that money we made sure was protected and we've got a waiver to be able to cover public safety officials that the firefighters law enforcement of the public safety and then also public health folks to be able to make sure those are protected this year and I wanted to ask you about rumblings I keep hearing about another stimulus bill so if you'll hang on we will talk about that and I will cover that on my podcast the later with Leigh Matthews podcast available K.

"Morning which organizations should get money from the federal government's coronavirus relief programs like many Planned Parenthood chapters around this country received funds from the paycheck protection program several Republican senators now want Planned Parenthood to return the money NPR national correspondent Jeremy cameras on the story Sarah good morning good morning Steve what did the Planned Parenthood chapters receive exactly so what we're talking about is the federal loan program under what's known as the cares act the one meant to keep small business workers on the payroll during this crisis so small businesses and small nonprofits with fewer than five hundred employees can apply for forgivable loans and it's important to note that while Planned Parenthood federation of America is a big national organization the national groups as they did not apply for these funds instead it's the local Planned Parenthood organizations that operate clinics around the country that received the money I talked with Stephanie frame the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of southwest and central Florida she says they got a little over two million dollars mostly to cover employee paychecks economic uncertainty at that moment was profound and the two weeks while we waited for this loan we spent having some very tough conversations about what we do we didn't get a strong so it's not clear how much Planned Parenthood or its affiliated groups have applied for or received nation wide fox news has reported and some Republican senators have repeated a figure of eighty million dollars combined nationally but the small business administration which administrates these loans would only say that the agency doesn't comment on individual borrowers okay but in any case the money was loaned to these Planned Parenthood chapters loans that they may not have to pay back if they keep people on the payroll like a lot of other businesses and non profits but this particular nonprofit does work that some Republican lawmakers are ideologically opposed to what they say right a Florida senator Marco Rubio who's chairman of the Senate small business committee says that Planned Parenthood isn't eligible for these funds under the program's rules he wants the money returned immediately he wants the SBA the small business administration to investigate why and how Planned Parenthood got the money and I talked with Republican senator James Lankford of Oklahoma who's also objected to this he also wants Planned Parenthood to send the money back that's what the Los Angeles Lakers are done that's what check check is done that's where risk Chris is done so other organizations arms exposed that they should not taken the money have returned the money so that would be the reasonable thing for them to be able to beat and Lankford says because Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide have many more than five hundred employees combined they don't qualify so Steve there's some dispute about how to interpret these rules but let's not forget there is a big political element to this I mean currently it is illegal in most cases for federal funds to pay for abortion but there is a long standing political debate about any federal funds going to Planned Parenthood because of what it has come to represent about the national debate around abortion and of course Planned Parenthood has argued they do a whole lot more than that perform abortions how is Planned Parenthood responding to the specific criticism here well they say they haven't received word from the SBA small business administration about this they only know what Republican senators are saying and what's been reported by fox which says that the SBA has sent a letter to Planned Parenthood affiliates informing them that they're not eligible for this money and instructing them to return it but again SBA isn't commenting on this are you able to figure out what the rules actually say and how they actually apply to this particular organization it's hard to say for sure Steve I talked to a few lawyers about this and I'm hearing that there is just a lot of confusion Republican senators insists Planned Parenthood doesn't qualify under the rules Planned Parenthood says each local affiliate looked at the program decided whether to apply for this paycheck support but a lot of lawyers say the rules are unclear and they've been

"Said absolutely alright NPR's Frank Lankford reporting there from Boston England thanks so much having to do with a huge new study finds a faint hint of genetic variation that may be linked to same sex sexual behavior the study broadly reinforces the observation that both biology and a person's environment influence sexuality but the results revealed very little about that biology as NPR science correspondent Richard Harris reports the study involves almost half a million middle aged people from Britain who volunteer to donate blood samples and answer questionnaires for a project called the U. K. biobank scientists pair that with information from tens of thousands of white Americans who volunteered to answer sexually did questions for the genetics testing company twenty three in me Benjamin Neil at the broad institute says the study's focus isn't on a person's sexual identity or desires what we really focus on is behavior the scientists compare genetic variance in people who say they had at least one sex partner of the same sex to those who said they had no such encounters the study published in science magazine looked millions of genetic variants to see if any significant differences appeared and when we do that we you know identify five variants that have some influence just five out of millions of variance analyzed the first thing that's most important is that they represent very very very small facts together and the five variance account for much less than one percent of the variability in the traits that we're looking at so they explain virtually nothing about the behavior and they reveal little if anything about the biology that might underlie those genetic variance using another technique the authors say genes could still influence eight to twenty five percent of the behavior they studied but even in a sample of a half a million people it was impossible to tease out anything about those genetic variance one obvious conclusion from these results is nobody's going to come up with a blood test to predict these sexual behaviors individual level production is effectively an impossibility it doesn't explain a lot but it it's at least a first step Melinda mills wasn't involved with the study but she wrote a commentary about it the Oxford University sociologist says for one thing it further undercuts the previously published report of a so called gay gene on the X. chromosome and since they didn't find a gradient of sexual behavior it undermines Alfred Kinsey's decades old scale which ranked people on the spectrum of sexuality from exclusively heterosexual to exclusively homosexual was was intrigued to see that of the five variants that the study did find two appeared in both men and women two were only in men and one was only in women it looks like there's something different driving women and men and I think that just means that you know there's a lot more to be examined in terms of women's sexuality and it's really been under research studies like this that seek to link genetic patterns to behaviors or disease usually explain far more than the fraction of a percent of the variance that was the case for this study that leaves Cecile Jansson a professor of epidemiology at Emory University puzzled why this study was even published I don't think that they found anything that is worth reporting she notes that findings like this should be replicated in different samples but in this case only three of the five genetic variance showed up in a separate sample so two of them didn't replicate at all in the broader findings don't apply to other populations different races places with different cultural norms or different age groups study co authored Benjamin Neil acknowledges that the study only really tells you about what's happening within the particular population they studied I do think that we've done a good job but there's no absolute guarantee that it'll turn up elsewhere perhaps an even larger and more diverse study would shed more light on these questions but pulling together a study like that would be an enormous challenge.

He lived in New Jersey. And I lived in Georgia every break from school. I visited him. We had a great relationship as child and father, and she told me a lot of detail. She said he was so full of laughs and energy in life. I adored him. I never saw bad side of him. When I moved into jersey treated me like an adult we had conversations about topics. We had never had before. I got to know him in another way. Like, you did your dad teaching him corden? And then you went on to talk about your stepdad and tell us some things about him. So thank you for that. You said you step dad? He said you speak regularly even about nothing. He's so calm, and such a great listener. And without using words. You would know if you disappointed him, you said, I know now that I make him proud, and we're very close still and thank you too. For your very kind words Jackie about the mindfulness mode podcast. I'm glad it so meaningful for you. And thanks for that. Oh, I wanted to briefly mention I'm going to be speaking at pod fast in Orlando, Florida, and that's coming up on March seventh.
