"Of covert vaccinations picks up, So do the reports of doses going to waste and it's more than just a handful here and there. We're talking 300 doses in Lee County, North Carolina. 1000 doses in Palm Beach and in Tennessee. Nearly 5000 doses have gone to waste. In the last month, Blake farmer of member station to be PLN in Nashville looked into it. Most clinics or experience to giving vaccines but not ones that are so precious and so sensitive to temperature that definitely have been losing since Sleepover. This pressure, Beth Ann Wilmore manages the covert vaccine inventory at a community health center in Franklin, Tennessee. Nonprofit clinics in the state started receiving shipments a month ago. I was definitely waking up in the mill a knife. Wondering how the temperatures were doing and they get okay. I hope it's good. She knows the horror stories one from a county over happened Just a week ago, The local school district received 1000 doses for a teacher vaccination event, but they were put in an unapproved freezer. The temperature sensor on this shipment gave an error code and out of caution. They were advised to throw them all away. It hurts my heart. Dr. Lisa Pearcey is the health commissioner in Tennessee, which has seen one of the country's biggest spikes in reported spoilage. But it's one of the risks in having so many places to get the vaccine as a way to increase access. There are now more than 700 sites across the state. It definitely raises the level of Concern when you have more partners, particularly partners that aren't under your direct control. In Knoxville, 1000 doses were thrown out, apparently confused for a shipment of dry ice in Memphis. The county was slow to disclose that nearly 2500 doses were allowed to expire on several occasions.

A fridge door just didn't close and Dr Kelly more of the immunization action coalition says a little spoilage is expected. Would be more worried if I saw reports of zero doses. Wasted transparency is the real concern. You want to see some waste because that means people are paying attention and that real world accidents happen and that they're being responded to properly. You could just don't want to see negligence. Reports of spoiled doses still come too far less than 1% of the total, even in states with big losses. There is hope that mishaps will be easier to avoid. With the newly authorized Johnson and Johnson vaccine. It can last in a normal refrigerator for months

Okay? Um, have several announcements for you today to begin. I know many of you and the American people are interested in the news coming from Johnson and Johnson's trial data. The president is encouraged by positive data on a potential new vaccine. He also knows that this is just new data and now is the time for the FDA to do its job of evaluating the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and the meantime, he continues to urge all Americans to mask up and follow public health guidelines until it's their turn to get vaccinated. Now I know there may be a lot of questions you have for us about the trial data, or Johnson and Johnson. I'm here to tell you that I'm not going to get ahead of the experts who you will all get to hear from in the next hour and our public health briefing from the covert response team, they will discuss this more with you and what everything means. Then at Wednesday's briefing, I also shared some of the engagement and outreach the White House is doing to move forward The American rescue plan. From the president, the vice president on down that work has continued and accelerated. Yesterday, senior staff spoke again to governors about the challenges they're facing and the importance of relief today, National Economic Council deputy director David came in will meet with the Council of State Governments. The Office of Public Engagement will also breathe black civic groups. Anti hunger and nutrition advocates and keep progressive groups and invite their feedback. These conversations are, of course, critical to building support and moving the president's bill forward, according But we also saw evidence this week that the American people overwhelmingly want their elected leaders to work with the president to confront the pandemic and get on and put people back to work. According to a moment poll released Wednesday. 71% of the American people want Republicans in Congress to work with pride. Isn't Biden. That number's up nearly 10 points from right after the election meeting. The trend of support for working in a bipartisan manner with the president is only growing. Finally, the president is committed to getting relief to working families. Hence, he is also meeting this morning with his economic members of his economic team with Vice the vice president and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. For a briefing on the cost of inaction and the impact of a delay and moving forward with a relief package Moat. Millions of Americans don't have enough food to eat, and millions more have lost their jobs. But interest rates are at historic lows, and that means it's the right time to make smart investments. Moody's of Wall Street Firm has said that we could end up with four million fewer jobs this year if we don't act on the president's plan. That's four million Americans who could would who could get back to work? I'm sure they will discuss all of that at their briefing later this morning. Last thing we are venturing to provide a week ahead to all of you are returned to providing week ahead. It's all of you. S O. Ah, quick preview next Monday, the president will meet with the secretary of state at the State Department. On Tuesday, President Biden will deliver remarks and sign an executive order. Advancing his priority to modernize our immigration system and Friday is of course, jobs day and the president will deliver remarks about the economy will have hopefully more over the next couple days, but we wanted to provide as many details. As we could with without sequence to kick us off. Um one for about one going with violence serving in Afghanistan is the president still committed to wind down operations? They're bringing troops home this year. The president I have not spoken with our national security team about this in particular, but his commitment remains at the top. You mentioned that American should follow public health guys. What challenges is it has been over the course of lot of months is that public health guys? State. Very substance have masked bandits. Others have endured dining open. Others have schools open. Others don't know what God is. Should the American people follow their governor's got it socially follow the president's well first. What we're venturing to do is provide more concrete guidance from the federal government from the CDC from health and medical experts on Important steps. All of the American people can take to keep themselves safe. That includes the importance of mask wearing, of course, and how how vital that is to keeping us safe. It also includes the importance of hand washing of restricting travel these air all guidelines that have come in recent days on weeks, I should say from the president of United States and from our Medical and health experts. But in addition as we discussed yesterday, there are guidelines, including the safe for for the state for opening of schools that he signed an executive order on directing both the Department of Education on HHS and sit in the end the CDC I should say, I'm sorry to produce those guidelines to give more specific advice and And markers to states and local school district's on what they should follow. So it will ultimately be up to states to governors to local school districts and others to make determinations. But we do want to provide more clear guidance from the federal government based on the expertise that health and medical experts on what people should follow on what will help keep the American people safe.

"local school district" Discussed on KGO 810
"Chopped down his father's cherry tree, but this is very tail history. And it seems like it's dangerous. Is this report going to make its way into schools and teach this to Children? And if it does, doesn't that become dangerous? Well, The good news is that I have a lot of faith and public school teachers. Both of my parents were K through 12 educators and one of the things that always happens whenever even if this had any official weight whatsoever, got circulated, or, you know, some local school district adopted it. The good thing is that the teachers on the ground who have been trained as historians, or there's some kind of credentialing. In most cases that you know teachers would have had to have gone through. They're gonna just disregard this right. And so any teacher that's actually trained by professional historians or as Historian is just gonna laugh at this or like I think the sign it as how not to write history, so it could be useful in that respect right to show be. There's history doesn't look like and if you turn in a paper that looks like this, you're going to get a nap on it in my class, So I think there's some used to do it right in that respect is kind of a historical remnant of this moment. It very much encapsulate this moment. Just denialism this desire to move away from truth and rigorous inquiry and actual Wrestling with difficult notions and difficult ideas and to just deny right and then the whole thing is I read through it. They're just denying history over and over and over again, and the other thing that's curious to me is I wondered what kind of history they actually thought was being taught in the classrooms because what was most curious to me as someone who has a daughter who's in a P World history or U. S history. I read through a textbook. What they wrote, is actually not much different than what a lot of the standardized textbooks coming out of, Let's say the Texas school board that has tremendous amount of power and has been steadily trying to move towards this kind of of history. In this denial of slavery, denial of imperialism, denial of the genocide of indigenous peoples. There's a couple of great books and documentaries on this, and it's kind of par for the course. And this is the direction Schools have already been going and so in some ways that the strange strongman because the kind of indoctrination that they imagine this happening is actually already happening, But in the other direction, they're the ones actually already doing this kind of nationalistic indoctrination, and that's the attempt. But then again when you get on the ground and talked actual school teachers The good ones are just dismissing and doing their own thing. So that's what I think is gonna happen here as well Well, and I think they tend to do the right thing as you move into higher education, But I don't like the idea that it's happening in high school. I don't like the idea that in an AP history course that that's something that the kids are Our enduring okay. So tell us some of the nonsense contained in the document. Sure so, but to return back to that question of kind of this break between high school and college, I think that's important What you what you just said, because there's a key distinction, and the key distinction is at most K through 12 in the United States. It's the official curriculum is just is designed by policymakers by politicians, whereas at the college level it's scholars who decide what is time. That's why there's such a huge gap between what students learn in their k through 12 education and what they learned when they hit my classroom in college to the point that what I usually open with is I'm actually not here to teach you history. I'm actually here to unteachable the history that you've been taught in your K through 12 education, so that to me is what's most Curious about what's happened here is that they've already won in some ways, and so to give you an example some of the dangerous ideas so pivoting to that part of the of the question, um, just nationalism. I mean, we're in a time of heightened nationalism around the world and the most damning thing about this in this moment in the most dangerous thing, which the term he mentioned earlier is it's a new Repentant commitment to nationalism and the idea that the nation as a whole should be put above everything else. Forget justice. Forget truth. Forget right, forget wrong. It's all about the nation's Sal arising the nation and ensuring that the nation is the centerpiece around which you imagine your life. Gather your ethics conduct yourself That to me is one of the most dangerous overall pushes in this is it's nationalistic kind of push. The undoing of the civil rights movement is another attempt that they've been after quite some time. Now as well. Do you read through the document? They've been trying to kind of claim the legacy of King for some time. Now there's kind, of course also claimed the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. And, of course, real historians that know that things change over time and that you can't cherry pick out the things you like that. You think appeal to or or are in line with what you believe today. But that some a figure like King was very rooted in his place and time and would be absolutely appalled at the things that are in this report would be appalled at what was happening with the nation. And he certainly wouldn't believe as the report kind of implies, for example, that things like affirmative action were a bad thing. And to show you just Some of the historical ignorance. It's kind of in here, they quoted from King's I have a dream speech. And they asked this question about what was meant by the promise Eri know to which every American would fall air too. And this is a line from King's speech that's actually about reparations. King is saying that the promissory note that America goes to black people elsewhere in his his work, he flesh this out. As preparations that there need to be something affirmative done to right the wrongs of the past four black people. It's got the report of the whole. Yeah, noticed him do and it was paid. That's what he meant. He didn't mean that the declaration of Independence was some kind of magical see, that was planted that even if people didn't fully realize that later, the brilliance of the document, which somehow carry over trans historically and am sprouted, this beautiful flower that's not was King was talking about. They also cited Frederick Douglass. Just meaning of the meaning of the Fourth of July to the Negro, which the damning report of American nationalism and American hypocrisy and they were encouraging people to read this one. Since I'm like, Please read the actual places. That would be great to be great, So it's a train wreck. Yeah, yeah, because it certainly isn't going to support their version of history. They claim the polemic. It's not even a good polemic because this is undermined itself at every turn. So whatever It's a civil rights movement, they said, devolved into preferential identity politics, not unlike.

New York City to Close Public Schools Again as Virus Cases Rise
"I was in New York City. Public schools shut their doors today because of the 3% positivity rate. As we've been discussing the Nassau and Suffolk County executives are both strongly disagreeing with Mayor De Blasio is decision to do that and to use that threshold. Positivity rate in National County is 3.5% even higher and Suffolk, But Nassau County executive Laura Current is leaving school closures up to the 56 local school district's in the county and says she would only order a Countywide closure if they hit 9%. That's the state standard three times the threshold the city is using. Talk about that and more now with Nassau County executive Laura current. She also has an article in New York magazine called Held Long Island County fought Covert. 19, a county executive looks back at the first wave. Executive Current. Always good to have you on Welcome back to W N. Y C. Good morning, Brian. And thank you very much for having me back. So, your statement says, Quote I strongly disagree with Mayor De Blasio is decision to close down schools in New York City. I want to make clear to our residents that I will do everything I can to keep our schools open, unquote. Why criticize the mayor by name there rather than just make your own decision for Nassau County. Well, I felt it was important, since this is really dominating the news cycle and, of course, New York City News really dominates the news in the suburbs. I just wanted to make it very clear to our residents. That the safest place for kids right now is in school. The schools, you know, it's a little bit different in Nassau County. So in the city, the mayor is in charge of the schools. Out here in Nassau County. We have 56 independent school district with their own elected boards. They make their own policy and make their own decisions, of course, with guidance from the state. Um, but my goal is to make sure that our health department, our county Health department Is working with them, helping interpret the guidance, helping them with contact tracing etcetera, and we've made very good relationships. So my goal is to get the word out there that it's very important for kids to stay in school right now. As I said, it's the safest place for kids are 56 school districts have really and I have kids in public school myself. They've done a fantastic job at this social distancing and ensuring math compliance and having kids on alternate days and all of that. They've really recalibrated quickly, and we're not seeing transmission within the school buildings. So you know, you did mention where a 3.5 yesterday. Our latest number was 3.3% that is concerning because we had been down it around 1% positivity rate, but the uptick isn't happening in the schools. It's not happening in the businesses and the gyms and the bowling alleys. It's really happening at these social gatherings, and I know that a lot of people have Covad fatigue. But people are still having these sweet sixteens and going off to other states to have big weddings and then coming back. That's where we're seeing the uptick. So I'm saying to everyone in the You can hear my voice. If you know you're not worried about yourself. You're not worried about your family. Think about the kids who need to be in school. Think about the businesses that need to operate. Keep people working. And, um, you know, as I said, school is safe right now, and I'm closing schools should be a last resort. That's what the CDC Protocol say in anything like a flu like pandemic Closing schools is the last resort. In March. It made sense. We got to that point We had 50% You know, we're getting into 50% positivity rate. At that point. It makes sense. At this point. It just doesn't make

Los Angeles and San Diego Schools to Go Online-Only in The Fall
"Very eventful day in Southern California has experience with this pandemic, and it's affecting Ella USD. It's remarkable I I was listening to the mayor's news conference a little bit earlier, and he made in aside essentially saying that the number of cases in L. A county positive cases in L. A county of covert 19 now outstrip all of Canada and that if L a county were its own country, it would rank 20th in the world in terms of infection, And that is a remarkable statistic When you consider also the second largest school district in the country, Of course, Ella ust resides here in L. A county. And the planners and the officials for the school district have been wrestling with what to do when August 18th arrives that, of course, the first day of the new academic year and the speculation had been that perhaps we would see some sort of a blend of online and in person instruction. So you know, maybe you would have half the class show up on Tuesday. Wednesday Thursday and the other half of the class show up on Monday and Friday. And the other half. That's not there maybe is online and you know, you just kind of makes things up to at least get the kids on campus because what we have found is that a staggering number of students when it's online instruction on Lee just do not engage for a lot of reasons out there that we don't have time to get into. So the assumption was, we would see some sort of blend like that. Then. Last week, the California Teachers Association, the United Teachers Los Angeles, the chapter basically of Sita, here and down in Los Angeles, came out. They said. We don't want any in person classes because of what we've seen over the last 4 to 5 weeks. This massive surge again this resumption of cases in L. A county and they made their case for online only instruction and AH, l ust being the second largest and not to mention also San Diego coming out in a joint statement this morning, saying, We're going to start the year with online on Ly instruction, which is Major development when you talk about the number of other districts that were waiting for a big one, like Ella to make a move like that we're going to start to see a lot of dominoes fall not only in California, but I would presume in other states. They're seeing a tick up in cases like Arizona in Texas and Florida, Georgia and all these other places, right for all the reasons you mentioned. And the first that you did mention, which is that we're the second largest school district in America. I think this is exactly right. There were the litmus test and it might be the strategy that a lot of other municipalities through the country imposed, But obviously the problems extend into well OK, so now these kids were home, so they have to have some supervision at home. And you have parents who or other, you know, kind of health care rather a childcare situations that are going to have to evolve TTO handle. These kids were now at home. I mean, there seemed to be complexities here. I'm not suggesting that these policy makers have to address all of them in the moment. I understand that there is trying to handle the classroom problem, but the other problems seem substantial. Yeah, That's the I mean, you hit on the right The complexity off the cova. 19 pandemic is one that a singular entity like Elio Stas. Biggest, it is cannot deal with on its own, because the tentacles off Cove it stretching to every little facet of our lives. Right now, That's what we're discovering Mohr and Mohr. So you know you can't restart the economy until you get kids back in classes, But you can't get kids back in classes until you have the testing in the tracing to understand where this disease is cropping up. And being able to cut off that tentacle so that ah, classroom is safe. Not for a teacher. So that a Boston safe enough for the students and for the driver so that the lunch line is safe enough for the lunch lady, You know, it's not just about the kids. It's about everyone. Those kids come in contact with and for just a singular high school. You're talking about hundreds of thousands of context that permeate from that school. And if you want to do testing if you want to do tracing in every single school, Austin Beauty brought this up the superintendent. Avella USD this morning, he said. If you want to do it in every single school across the country, you're talking about $15 billion in order to set up that program. But the federal government has been absent of leadership in this issue. And because of that, it's made it even more difficult for local school districts to come to a solution come to a decision, which is part of the reason why here we are 56 weeks out from the start of the school year and just now really coming to grips with the fact that the kids are not going to be headed back to school, and Mom and Dad may not be able to go back to work, and that We'll have further repercussions in the economy. As we move forward, Christian Carlo is with us. I want to continue this conversation. But I want to ask you if there was any indication as to what the classroom would look like. I mean, with the virtual classroom would look like I mean how they've shut this shop. Clearly they given it, some thought. So there's so much more to the story if we're going to go to an online experience as soon as August 18th It's going to affect so many kids in so many families. As we said, I mean, the numbers are overwhelming. I mean, there are on top of the Million's just what is the actual number of kids enrolled in L. A is doing Had it here. It's ah, It's a huge, huge number. But there it is. It's 1/2 a 1,000,000 K through 12 students, about 75,000 employees. On DH. So you're dealing with this, these people and as as Christians, saying they interlock in so many different ways, and all those ways exposed these people to some risks, So

7,000 children test positive for Coronavirus in Florida
"Eight thousand number of cases confirmed in the United States a new record and seven thousand, the amount of children who have now tested positive in the state of Florida alone since March Dr Scott. GOTTLIEB is the former FDA commissioner now a CNBC contributor he joins us once again Dr Gottlieb's good to see you. Let's begin with these cases of children in the state of Florida. How alarming is this? What does it tell us about? The age groups now that are susceptible to getting this virus. Well we always knew children were susceptible. The belief is that they're less susceptible than adults, so they're less likely to contract the virus than adults and that when they do get the virus, they're less likely to have a bad outcome. Data seems to support that, but they're not impervious to the virus. They do get sick. They get infected and we have seen some bad outcomes in. In children, we also don't know what it looks like. When this virus becomes epidemic in children, we don't know how many kids have actually had corona virus. There aren't any good seroprevalence studies to look for antibodies and kids to see what the exposure has been in children, and it might be the case that a smaller percentage of kids in the United States have had this infection. Infection at this point in adults on a relative basis, because the very first thing we did when we had these epidemics was closed the schools, and so that that closed off an avenue of spread, and I would venture to guess that parents with school age children were probably more here into the at home, mortars, wearing masks good hygiene because they were doing those things to protect. Protect kids, so might be the case that a smaller percentage of kids have actually been exposed, and so we don't know what it looks like. When this becomes epidemic and children in the same way for example, flu becomes epidemic and children every year, if the virus outbreak stays at the current pace. Are we going to be able to send our kids to school in the fall? I don't think so in the south. I mean if they don't if they don't correct the situation and they don't have a lot of time to do it in states like Texas. Georgia Alabama California Florida Arizona. It's going to be very hard for local school. Districts parents on boards of local school boards to make decisions to open those schools I think in the northeast we will be able to open schools in the north I. Think Parts of Northern California San Francisco be able to open a schools. We should really try do that. There should be an emphasis on doing that because we might be in a situation where we have to close the schools again later on. On in the school year, getting kids back to school socializing them, get him started on classroom learning. If we have to go to distance learning on a selective basis as outbreaks occur, it's going to be really important to get them back into the classroom. At least for a period of time, I think a lot of states in the south really have lost the opportunity do that because they have to make those decisions and July those schools open in August in many in many cases, and so they're probably going to start the year with schools closed in a lot of parts to those states. Do we know anymore Dr Leave about that syndrome that had been affecting. Growing numbers of children and we haven't talked about frankly in six weeks to two months. So there was a really good analysis studying published in the New England Journal of Medicine about two days ago that I would encourage people to take a look at that gives sort of a qualitative assessment of ninety nine cases in New York City, it appears to be opposed by real syndrome that occurs about a month after the virus. What we still don't know is what is the total number of kids who had the virus? We know how many kids had. This syndrome appears to be sort of a post. Viral Inflammatory Syndrome could be quite severe sort of like a Kawasaki Type Syndrome. When you get inflammation of arterial vessels it could. It could have disturbances heart. It's treatable, but we don't know how. Many kids are in effect with corona virus, so we're seeing one hundred cases, and there's been one hundred thousand kids infected, or we seeing one hundred cases there. There's only been five thousand ten thousand kids. In fact, it's probably the case that a lot of kids have had this new. New York City and it's a low incidence event and you do see these similar post viral types of syndromes with other viruses including corona virus, where you also see it on rare occasions, a Kawasaki Type Syndrome, with other forms of Corona virus, and so when you see these epidemics, viruses enter a virus echo virus sort of move through population. You will see a month later three weeks later. A preponderance of these post viral kinds of syndromes, so this isn't that unusual in many respects. We just don't know what the incidences of
Former FDA head says some parts of U.S. could see 'exponential' rise in COVID-19
"We begin with those new fears about the fall, and what the growing number of outbreaks could mean for the school year, Dr Scott Gottlieb the former head of the FDA now, a CNBC contributor raising those concerns tonight, and he is with us once again Dr. Gottlieb's good to be back with you tonight. These concerns come because of the rising number of cases. We're seeing in places like Florida and Texas. Right, I think we absolutely should make an attempt to open public schools in the fall, and we were headed in that direction I've been talking to a lot of school. District says starting to make plans for how to safely do that had a D. densify classrooms how to protect teachers had to keep students grouped into cohort CEO have large groups of students intermingling so that you can isolate students. In case, there is an introduction into the classroom of infection. Infection, but when you look at the southern states in the southeast right now you see these large outbreaks underway, and really some stay, sir, tipping into what we would fashion as epidemic. It's going to be very hard to open public schools against this backdrop so i. think a lot of the focus right now of our discussion is on maintaining the economy keeping businesses open, and we seem to have come to the resolution that we can maintain business and. And keep businesses open even against the backdrop of a lot of infection right now the infection that we have but the decision open schools is a much different decision, and the threshold is much lower and I fear that if we continue to have this persistent level infection that we're seeing in the south and the southeast right now it's going to be very hard for local school. Districts make decisions to open, and if we can't open schools in the. The fall that's going to encumber our ability to really get back to robust economic activity, because payers don't go back to work until their kids go back to school. This is coming as we're seeing infections in places like Florida effect, younger people, and the fact of the matter is Dr Gottlieb. We don't really know the effects of the corona virus on the youngest. Do we because they were pulled out of school and they were kept largely at home. That's right and hospitalization rates are going up across the board, but more twenty and thirty and forty year olds are now finding their way into the hospital. Because infection rates are rising in that community, and that suggest two things number one to suggest that there's probably a lot of twenty and thirty year olds who have grown ivars 'cause we know a much smaller percentage of them are likely to get sick enough to require hospitalization, but would also starts to tell us that they are getting sick enough to require hospitalization I think that there was previously a. A belief that you know if you were twenty or thirty somewhat impervious to this now we see rising hospitalization rates among that age quarter cohort, as far as younger kids are concerned with in every country. This became epidemic. The first thing that those nations did was close the schools and we don't have good data on this, but it's probably the case that parents with school age children here more strictly to the stay at home, mortars in the social distancing so young kids were largely kept in isolation away from situations where they would have contracted the virus. If only because schools were closed very early in the setting of these epidemic, so we really haven't seen the infection. Have the opportunity to infect that community to infect young children, because they were protected from the virus in same way that older people now are protecting some virus in a much lower rate of infection is occurring among older individuals in the country, and so we don't really know how this virus is going to behave. Once it gets into different cohorts that have been largely unaffected to date. If, you were advising the governors of Texas and Florida tonight. Dr Gottlieb what would your advice be about dealing with this epidemic right now? Well they're really at a critical point right now because you don't know where they are in the scope of their community spreading their epidemic baker very easily tip over into what we call exponential growth where the cases start going up very rapidly, and this becomes much more deep seated into community. There are signs that that may be happening already and so what they need to do right now. First of all universal masking is the simplest thing we can do. It's effective. Effective it's not wildly effective, but it's really the simplest thing we can do. That's not intrusive. Shorter closing businesses. The other thing you need to do is very good testing and tracing to find out what are the sources of spread. There seems to be some indictment right now of the bars in Texas and Florida, but we don't have really good evidence at the bars of the sources spread. We think they are because we know they're indoor. Congress settings are high risk. Risk Settings and they're not adhering to social distancing rules that are in place in those states right now, so there's a belief that those are the sources spread, but we don't know that there might be other things causing the spread at the community level that we need to identify, and that's what good tracing comes into play Texas and Florida, having invested in the tracking and tracing if you look at an early of the fifty states, and who's doing a really good. Good Job Texas and Florida aren't the worst, but they're certainly not the best, and there's certainly below fifty. The median level in terms of the number of tracers number public health workers. They have doing this tracking and
8 weeks after the CARES Act how are we doing?
"Eight weeks ago today the cares act was passed trillions of dollars in that the Federal Reserve as we know Katherine has plowed its own trillions. In two months later do you think well it still looks like it's GonNa get worse before it gets better. Unfortunately the obviously there's been a lot of firepower aimed at the economy Monetary and fiscal at this point but the number suggests that unemployment is still going up for example And there could be another sort of knock on effect that we could imagine happening quite soon which is state and local governments facing fiscal crises. At this point and they've already laid off almost a million workers last month and with their new fiscal year. Coming up as you could imagine more cuts which we saw on the aftermath of the great recession and prolonged the the amount of time. It took to recover from that so you might see that happening again right. And we will feel that obviously and local school districts and all of that stuff down the line so deep What your two cents on. How we're doing here. It feels to a lot of people like this was a the wave and we went to the bottom of the wave. Now we're GONNA come back from it and there's a perception out there that ono there could be a second way of our third wave. And what does that feel like when in reality what we're going to probably see our fifty different states with different ways all with their own roller coaster going up and down for months. Maybe even the next year and that is going to be really dizzying for everybody. Because we're used to thinking that everybody in America's GonNa come out of something together and we're GonNa see this shoot up and outside of the stock market you're not seeing that you're seeing You're seeing just like a really really confusing mixed picture across the country.

"Taking a unique approach to bullying law enforcement of the city of Solano along with the local school district. They're going to work together to combat bullying with financial penalties to the parents when bullying occurs. Those parents will then have ninety days after their informed by the police of their child's behavior to intervene and put a stop to it. If the bullying continues parents will be fine, three hundred sixty six dollars. If there is a second offense, within one year, the parents will be fine six hundred and eighty one dollars. Now, the intent of the law is to make the parents more involved in countable. But if we only hold the parents responsible, what lesson does that teach the children because kids are going to get yelled at and, and God. Forbid beaten for this, because the and then that they're just going to take it back. Do you really think that that's going to work, right? No god. No, I think it's a terrible idea. Look, it's not teaching the kids anything. Gosh. No. It's what it's telling the kids, don't worry about it. Mom and dad will take care of it. That's not what it's supposed. That's look growing up is tough. And I think it's a lot tougher now than it was in our day. That's really high school. Yeah. Any school? I think it's, it's just harder but to not have the kids work their way out of a situation and not figure out a way out of it before you go to the parents and start finding the parents. I think you're sending the wrong message kids aren't going to learn how to deal with things in. That's I think a lot of the problem in this country. Right now is our kids. We're coddling them we're we're we're stepping in intervening and they're not figuring out a way to get out of stuff that they get their selves in to look, I was bullied when I was a kid, too. I mean I was I was small for a long time. I didn't. I didn't start growing till I eighth grade. And I got tall between eighth and ninth grade. But I used to get chased home by kid that lives about three streets away from me, courtesy used to chase his home from school every day, Finally I'd had enough. It has a little guy. You know, I waited till he was me and DeWayne walking home. And I said, all right. Let me know when he gets close he gets closer when he got close I just turned around and punched him and it stopped, and it stopped I never got chased home again now. But I mean, that's, that's taking it to an extreme. But yes. For having glasses. Why I don't blame them. Okay. I might have been my mouth had something I wanna say is definitely but. Go after the parents. All right. What happens if the parents can't or won't pay the fine? Do you give them jail time? Yeah. How far did they take this threat? They haven't gotten there yet. They, they have not determined what they would do if the parents don't pay the fines yet. But I still say you're asking the parents to clean up after their children. The children's should have to face punishment for being bullies. Anyway, if they're doing it to a point where it's causing trouble. And the kid has to go to the to the school officials or to their parents and complain about it. Then you've gotta work it out between those kids, having the parents come in and pay a fine is not the right way to do it. I because I would imagine eight times out of ten those parents aren't going to do it. And if they don't do it or we're going to put them in jail for it. So what are you waiting for? My kids bullying. I didn't pay the fine too. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, it's a there's consequences so they're acts kids need to learn how to get themselves out of situations. If you don't teach them that now when they become adults, who's gonna pay their fines, then. Right said enough on that up next. It's those were.

Having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have. Rush Limbaugh love being here every day with you, folks. Even if the newest bores me, I still love being with you every day because who knows somebody in the phones might inspire me. I don't tell you very often when the news sometimes I do, but I don't very often grab audio sound bite number one Donald Trump's approval numbers in the CNN poll. And remember the objective of all that has been going on since the Trump campaign since the election since the transition into his presidency. The objective of all of this has been to get Trump out of office to have him removed from office, and since there isn't any Russian collusion since there isn't any crime that Trump has committed that they can find an improve what they've been trying to do is just flood. The zone with one anti Trump story after another sometimes five day all designed to weaken public support for Trump to cause his base to abandoning. They are totally invested in this. And as such when they fail they are beside themselves. So CNN just released one of their whitest pulse today, and it shows Trump's approval numbers at a level. They can't believe we have here of the fill in host, poppy Harlow talking. The political director David Chaldean just this morning on CNN about Trump's strength in their poll. We do have a brand new poll this morning on how Americans feel about the president the president's approval rating stands at forty percent. I'm fascinated by this ball, his approval a slightly higher at how he stacks up to his predecessors as they were about to give their third state of the union address. Take a look you're only Ronald Reagan in one thousand nine hundred eighty three at this point in his presidency was below where Donald Trump is now now that they give Donald Trump hope you'll recall Ronald Reagan went on to win a resounding victory for a second term beside themselves. They can't figure this out because they have. Devoted their existence to this? And I am not exaggerating that the reason for CNN being in bed with the Intel community and the FBI and the DOJ and all these other nefarious sources around the world that want to get rid of Trump has been his public opinion numbers is approval numbers. That has not only was that the way they got rid of Nixon. They drove his numbers down to the twenties. They drove George W Bush down into the mid to high thirties. So it's become an objective. That's that's the the thirties are the line of demarcation if they can get below that to they can get rid of the guy, and that's what they have been singularly devoted to. And I wanna give just as a heads up. The Muller report is going to be purpose. The exact same way, folks. If you read, and I don't expect most people will if you read the indictment of Roger stone. It becomes crystal clear. What Muller's report is going to be? And I'll just sum it up for you. There isn't a crime. There is no crime that Trump is committed not the least of which collusion with Russia. There isn't any. There is no collusion. There is no proof of collusion. The report is not going to say there is the report like this indictment of stone. My friend Andy McCarthy pointed this out to me you read that indictment of Roger stone. What it is. It's a story. It reads like a chapter in a novel. An indictment doesn't have to prove anything. A narrative indictment, and there is an actual term for that in legal circles. And that's what this is a narrative indictment is where rather van offer the evidence of a crime, and what you think is the proof of the crime and the purple committed a narrative indictment is where you just tell a story where the person indicted is a figure is is is part of the story. And the way this is gonna work like the narrative in this indictment is that Donald Trump wanted to know what WikiLeaks had on Hillary Clinton and the Podesta emails and saw Roger stone was dispatched to find out. It doesn't say Trump told stone to go visit Roger stone was dispatched to find out Roger stone. Then got hold of his buddy. Jerome Corsi who then got holy his buddy core deco, and they then got hold of Assange, and then they create this whole narrative that doesn't prove anything. It just continues the story that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Imagine a report that is hundreds of pages of this. And then you're the media. So your report molars report says that there was this and that went on collusion with Russia, and they got guilty pleas. They got guilty pleas for manafort's guilty pleas from whoever they got convictions on. And so what you end up with is a gigantic narrative of something that did not happen that is substantiated with either pleas or convictions of all the people you got an process crimes in the report. When CNN for example, reports on the mullahs report, they're not gonna say that Rogers don't pled guilty to something unrelated to the premise. They're just going to say Roger stone. Pled guilty after telling the story of what we think happened. But we can't prove it. But we're pretty sure, and here's what we think happened in this was going on. And in the midst of it, we found insecure guilty pleas from and so the media is going to say there was collusion. It says they're writing a report look at stone pled guilty Flynn, pled guilty, or whatever stone Manafort pled guilty. It's it's clear as day what they're doing here. Even though there's no collusion. They're going to write a report that tells the story of what it would have been headed happened. And then you go get these please from people use you charge people like Manafort and stone and Flynn just so that you can report on convictions or guilty pleas, which then frees the media to relate the two even though they won't be related in the report. And so the report gets written that there was possible collusion, and we think we've got pretty close because look at the people we convicted or pled guilty to it. The purpose of this is to continue to create doubt the idea. That Trump colluded with Russia. We may not have been able to prove it here. But he clearly wanted and he clearly set the stage for the Russians to have an impact on the election because of his incompetence and his inexperienced it's all going to be designed to hopefully 'cause people who currently support Trump to abandon him. And they were hoping for this to happen before the midterms. The reason Muller hasn't closed up shop is because there's now a new election. Twenty twenty fact, I have it on good as well. Should I tell you? I've got a good authority that Muller's mostly. Not checked out. But that he's not the driving force of this thing right now that Weisman is, but it's pure politics. Folks. This whole report this whole in by all of this is one hundred percent pure politics under the guise of serious law enforcement, it it is exactly what we have always thought. It was it was a hoax, and it is a cover up of the people who actually did collude with Russia and authorized that collusion like Obama and Clapper and Brennan and all that it's insidious. It remains totally an everybody. Everybody involved in this from Muller to Weisman know that there was no collusion. They know it. They're indictment of stone, contrary to their dreams proves there's no collusion. Why would Trump need stone to go? Find out what Julian Assange said if he was colluding with Trump. He would know what Assange had because the Russians supposedly gave it to Assange. Assange denies it. But the reports going to say that he did the Russians did in the Trump was colluding a new so why would he have to have anybody go find out what Julian Assange Hayden what was coming? He would have known. Why us Roger Stanton if you're gonna? I mean, this is all point is these people don't care about Manafort. They don't care about stone. They don't care about Flynn. These are just people who will either plead guilty or be convicted of something unrelated just so the report can secure guilty pleas. When matched against the narrative. They're going to tell about collusion that did not happen. Rush.

"It's talking Kelly Monday morning. We'll talk to the leader of a group trying to get more armed security in their local school district. That's at eight fifty eight ten and three one WTY. Welcome back. Rush Limbaugh, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have FOX h l Mencken from Baltimore. I'm gonna paraphrase once wrote no one ever went broke underestimating the ignorance of the American voter or the American public, and you know, you've heard variations of that. Nobody ever got broke. Nobody ever went broke thinking the American people are dumb or dumber. It's a bit of a cliche. And I know that it is insulting. But it is exactly what is happening here. Now where did all this stuff? So why do these people believe this? If you want to go back and trace it. I would tell you that you've got to go all the way back in this with this generation, the ocasio Cortez. Maybe some years older go back to captain planet. Saturday morning cartoon, Ted Turner. And then the is just nonsense Al Gore stupid movie. Do not doubt me on this. It got an Oscar. It wins Academy Awards. He was a hero. These people grew up believing every lie and distortion that was in that movie, and the environmentalists have been brilliant. They have told people you're gonna die. This earth is in the process of being destroyed not damaged or destroyed. We're already killing the polar bears. They think that you can tell them. No the polar bear population is at an all time high. They don't believe you. They seem to pictures Al Gore's movie where there aren't any glaciers anymore for the polar bears to set the polar bears. Habitat is literally melting away. They're dying off his horrible. They really think islands have already been erased by rising sea levels. There are convinced that Miami will not be here in ten years. There's no substitute for experience. And I have been doing this thirty years, and I've been tracking this issue. And I have been tracking the people who believe it, and the people who believe it are getting more strident and stringent in their beliefs. I know the polling data shows that most Americans don't even care about climate change as a political issue, meaning something on which their vote turns is that stopping these people. Look at the damage. They've already done to our culture. How many of you ever thought that gay marriage would be overwhelmingly accepted inside two years after the big push began in every state in the country. How many have you ever thought that really we would have serious debates on whether men can use a woman's bathroom or a little girls bathroom. I mean, they're creepy. Sneaky, smart creeping up on everybody building up to the resistance and bullying the opposition to this. And so, you know, laughing about it. And trying to joke about it. I've tried that. It is. So deeply inculcated in them as propagandize dot indoctrinated into them that. If we don't take this seriously and swat this down and slap it back. So many rush. This is the greatest thing that's ever happened. This is the best thing in the world for the Republican party. This green new deal is the greatest thing since Trump's election. It is so stupid and Cortes is so smug spelling out what the Democrats really want to do to us that this thing has no prayer happening. And it's going to really wake up a bunch of people on the left. And I know this is a great example. A lot of people are thinking, there's no way. There's literally no way they're going to get enough people to literally think we can ban airplane travel in ten years. Do not kid yourself. I predict you're going to end up being shocked at how many people the media at least says support this. You're going to see the first polling data on this. And you're going to be stunned and amazed. You can't believe it. You're not gonna believe it. I don't know. Whether you're gonna believe gentlemen, docked. Or or Dr not, but it is. It is. Really important understand that they're now leading with this. They're not trying to do this stealthily. They're not trying to sneak this stuff in while. Nobody's looking they are making it the identifying characteristics of their party, their belief system their future and their agenda. And the same thing with abortion. They are not holding back on it any longer. They're telling us exactly what it is always been kill babies. And now even after they are born, and you'll notice that there is no effort to make anybody who has come out and stood up for that. There's no push back against them. There's no demand that they resigned. There's no public outcry. Our outrage over it that we know of because if there is the media doesn't cover it. Right now, our bunny route no them is being credited in the media for survive in his scandal. You know, how the media say what a brilliant maneuver Ralph? No them has made by going invisible. The media is praising Ralph Northam for being able to hide from them. Nobody can hide from the media unless they want to not find somebody. So they're already stored routing all them gonna survive the black face scandal. Meaning Ralph Northerns going to survive his belief that babies can be wiped out after birth. Nothing's going to happen to the New York state. Legislators have passed the same law, and I think it's New Mexico. They've got a law now, that's even worse than those two. And all the while all these Yaw, that's never gonna happen rush. You can't stop talking about abortion rush. Nobody's ever. Did it just getting people to Haiti state? We're a bunch of God card-carrying religious, right? Kosher keller. Stop talking about it. I'm telling you, folks. It's. It's headed in the wrong trajectory. So you never I guarantee you that nobody in this audience. Maybe some of you, maybe, but how many of you actually thought? That you would be alive when a political party in state after state after state advocates for killing babies after they're born on the basis. That's what the mother wanted to do. And you can't tell them other. What you can or can't do because it's her body. It's Roe versus Wade. And you gotta shut up about how many have you ever thought that anybody in a political party would benefit from that? But yet here, we are let me give you another example. Jeff Bezos, Jeff Bezos. Yeah, he's Amazon, but Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post. Jeff Bezos sent out photos of his genitalia to his mistress. And Donald Trump is being blamed for it. Because the people that have the photos happened to be the National Enquirer in a bit of irony. The guy that runs the inquirer is named pecker. So a guy named pecker has some pecker shots of Jeff visas in Jeff Bezos claims that he's being blackmailed and extorted. And the media's now say well, Trump knows pecker pecker knows Trump Trump has a pecker. So therefore Trump is behind what's happening to Beeson. Can you imagine? If that little pinch. She'll burger had been caught doing this. You magin if the great Arthur Schultz, burgers senior, and then the Arthur Sulzberger, jR, little punch a little pinch. You magic they had been caught sending out photos of their genitalia to their mistresses. Well, it's happening and Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post and the media circling the wagons to defend him, and somehow try to link Donald Trump to this now but science that what does it say about the leadership of Amazon. What does it say about the leadership of the Washington Post that this is what? And these people are all leftists. While we're sitting here whips it day. We have to listen to what immorality Donald Trump. Is visiting upon America, the ogre gauche, the brute the absolute horribly, rotten behavior oriented Trump, and meanwhile, this stuff is going on what sort of what what sort of man. Now, we we know that that. Carlos danger, the husband of Houma. But we know that he did it. Again, that's part of a Hillary. We know that Bill Clinton did. Well, I don't think he ever sent out photos, but what what sort of person does this what sort of man thinks. That is Jimmy Taylor. A photo of his genitalia on a phone of his mistress is going to make her swoon do men not realize this doesn't work. Do men not realize that's not what works if you're trying to make a woman swoon. It's the exact opposite. And yet that'd behavior is not being condemned. It's being used to condemn Trump's somehow. Before we go to the break. I got the total change direction here. But I got a sound bite here of Sheila jackson-lee trying to get something out of Matthew Whitaker. I opened the program telling you how hilariousness was how enjoyable this was to watch cookie went out there to found it it runs about a minute. But it is it's classic. The House Judiciary committee hearing about the special counsel investigation. And again, they're trying to get Whittaker to admit that he's told everybody what's going on. And he thinks Muller socks, and he links Muller is a criminal. He thinks this whole thing's outraged been asking him every which way from Sunday you talk to the president about the special counsel. Do you jump to the attorney general? Did you tell Ivanka Trump that you'd think Muller oughta be in jail? Did you see it in knowing what was going on at still all of this stuff? And he's refusing to answer as much of it as he can. And when he came up against Sheila jackson-lee, I don't know how he kept. A straight face. You do not have confirmation hearing. And you have not yet appeared oversight hearing. Yes, or no, yes. Or no congresswoman, I'm the act. Yes. Or no have you appeared before an oversight hearing in the congress witness will answer the question as asked please a member has only five minutes we. She's entitled to it. I will not allow the witness stolen, waste members time may have my time restored. I think was at four minutes. Attorney general question is did.

"Country and so take over laws are passed in response to this and so without this and without black political and parmanent cities we actually don't get takeover of local school district that's fascinating and so now let me just back up for a moment because the the argument of the thesis that that you're making here is that it is inherently informed by race and by a a race or racial dichotomy between power that is at the very least accessible to to black folk into minorities in the urban centers and this is a challenge to the thority of of of those in the state houses who for the most part tend to be white is there any data on the educational outcomes i mean so that we can you know shift more to the sort of like the the implications for democracy and the the political power is there any is there any data for for educational outcomes like is there any evidence out there that when state takes over you get these sort of dramatically better educational outcomes which could possibly justify it so so to that question directly so the results are mixed and particularly being the research that we saw happen during this period again the nineteen eighties to to early two thousands it's it's really mixed and so there's no conclusive evidence at this stage where takeover actually lead to better outcomes we can talk about you know later research and so forth but what i do wanna make the point i think the main the major point here is that these schools clearly school districts are clearly struggling they have always struggling so i think that's important for us to understand but the the the research the research is pretty clear about it that if we're going to improve school districts we need collaboration we need all hands on that we need the state to be invested we need the national government to be invested but a key component for all of this that you can't eliminate the local community from the decision making that just.
