"With tech trends. I'm Mark Remillard ABC News Bye. Billy Cunningham, the Great American, and I think it's illustrative to spend some time with J. D. Vance says. You may know J. D. Vance is the author of Hillbilly Elegy, But More importantly, he's a Announced candidate for the vacancy to be created when Rob Portman steps down next year. So, uh, hopefully J. D. Vance will be in the U. S Senate. Uh and the next year we'll see what occurs from that. But J. D. Vance, welcome to the Bill Cunningham Show and J D. How are you? I'm good. Thank you for having me. Give me your reaction to the Biden six point plan. This is the commemoration this weekend of the anniversary of 9 11 and where that's an entirely different topic about how we dislodged the Taliban. Now the Taliban are back in charge, which is incredible. 20 years if I had gone to sleep on September, the 12th 20 Oh one and woke up this morning. I was thinking nothing's changed in Afghanistan. But in spite of that, give me your reaction to the Biden six point plan, which tends to vilify and crucify Republicans and those who oppose them. And thanks to that character, What are your thoughts? J. D. Vance? Yeah. Look, I've got a couple of big reactions. The first is I can't think of a time in my life that I've ever seen a U. S president talk about his fellow citizens with such disdain. And such disgusting basically acted like everything Gle American citizen who had not received the vaccine is subhuman piece of trash. And I was so disgusted to hear sitting U. S president talk about its fellow citizens like that. By the way, a couple of points there first. A lot of the vaccine hesitant folks out there are Democrats. This is not just a Republican thing that Democrats love to talk like everybody who doesn't want to get a vaccine. You know, it's it's some. It's some dumb idiot who voted for Donald Trump in 2020, and that's not true. If there's hesitancy across the board in the second thing is a lot of that hasn't been doesn't come from some Anti science anti vax viewpoint. It comes from people who, first of all Don't love the experimental nature of the vaccine. And I say this as somebody who's encouraged others to get the vaccine, especially in high risk groups. But it's also a lot of people like my dad who had covid who has the antibodies. The science tells us that my dad is more protected than somebody who's got the vaccine. And he's saying, Why do I need to get a vaccine? Given? I've already had the disease. We should be respecting that choice and not treating people like my own father like they're subhuman Americans. But of course, that's what the dividing folks did. The second thing is what he is doing, I think is circumventing the U. S constitution and using the private sector to do it. The government has no right to tell private citizens what they're allowed to do with their own medical decisions. That is a basic principle in the American Constitution were free society. We don't live by the dictates of government. But what the Biden folks have done Is turned US businesses into agents of the government forced them to create a vaccine mandates that the government can never do itself. So they're using our own businesses to destroy liberty the government cannot do directly They're accomplishing something through the back door. Basically, they could never do through the front door. That is unacceptable. And whatever your views on this, whether you like vaccines or not. Whether you're worried about covid, or you think we should get over it. You should be standing up to this unbelievable exercise the government purity and I've encouraged people don't comply. If your business is if your business Don't tell your employees to do this forced the government to go after you force. The government needs to mean letter forced them to come after us because they have become after a few people. They're going to do it. But if they have to come after hundreds of millions of Americans This tyranny will not stand trade events. I'm watching some of the morning talk shows like Dr Scott Gottlieb, who I is not an alarmist. He was former head of the FDA. He's on the board of Fighter. He made two or three salient points, One of which is is gonna question was asked when will this role be implemented? And he said with the FDA whenever a rule is proposed, there's a 90 Day period where the rules proposed in and sent out for comment among those affected and after 90 days, there's further action by the underlings that the government agency to refine the rule. And then there's a public hearing on the rule. Then groups are brought in to talk or individuals about what's right about the rule. What's wrong about the rule? Then there's another comment period after that. Then the FDA or OSHA will have a former meeting at which they will pass the rule, and then it passes through another committee to determine whether it's constitutional. And then there's another comment period. Then, if there's any change in the role, even a sentence or a comma, it goes back to the beginning to have the role implemented. So the question was this. What's the earliest this social role can be implemented? His answer was September of 2022. And I said September of 2022. Secondly, there's many studies to indicate that you don't need the vaccine. If you already protected, the language ought to be not vaccinated or unvaccinated. It should be protected or unprotected. And so when there's 40 million Americans so far that has tested positive for Covid 19, which is one third of those who have gotten it since the great majority of Americans who have had covid 19 either. Don't know they had it or secondly, They haven't been tested. There's 120 million Americans walking around that are protected as opposed to unvaccinated your protected but unvaccinated so the language need to change from vaccinated to unvaccinated from protected unprotected. So in your father's case, he ought to be able to to go somewhere and get a get antibody tests. And I had mine done recently. I scored 10. Even though I've been vaccinated. I got a 10, which means I'm like ironclad. And so the government is telling of 60 year old man, You must get a jab in your arm that you don't need that may make you sicker. If you're younger, you may get my cardi itis, which is an inflammation in your heart, which is very bad for you. And so that the awful aspects of this are just everywhere. So why J. D. Vance? Can you think like Joe Biden? He's got a crisis happening on the southern border. He's got a crisis happening in Afghanistan. All of a sudden, the media turns and now we're talking about whether everyone's got to get vaccinated. Whether you're protected or not. Why should somebody protected Get vaccinated. Yeah, That's exactly right enough. If I'm trying to enter the mind of Joe Biden, which is a difficult thing asked me if you will, but I will try. I'm your guest. And so I will have a lot of the request. Is. Look, the first thing is you got crisis all around us. And this is a big distraction maneuver, Right? This is a guy who knows that If the media is talking about Afghanistan, talk about the southern border. It's talking about the drugs and crime that are coming into our communities and talk about inflation. We've got good consumers who can't buy things that they need, because Christ the price of Ground beef and dairy and used cars as shooting through the roof. We've got crises that we're not talking about. Now we're talking about the vaccine mandates, so I think it's distraction. I also really worried that A lot of this is coming from the people around by you see an opportunity to grab power for government bureaucrats. One of the great tragedies of American life is that our constitutional republic is increasingly ruled by bureaucrats are unelected and unaccountable people. And I think those bureaucrats see an opportunity to basically give public health bureaucrats more and more power because look, you follow the logic of this vaccine mandate. And really the principle at stake here is if you're not doing the things That The public health bureaucracy wants you to do If you're not listening to what the CDC tells you to do. You can't live a normal American life. You can't go to school. You can't go to work. You can't earn a living to feed your family. You.

"And Human Services adopt US kids and the Ad council. Co Mo News. 1000 and FM 97 7. Welcome back the Coma politic cast. I'm Jeff Postell masks still controversial, and this time the Department of Education jumping into the fray. They've launched civil rights into investigations into five states. That have laws banning mask mandates. Now, interestingly enough, Not included are the two most controversial states, Texas and Florida. However, Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah Are named in this investigation. Joining me now is a BCS mark Remillard from New York City, and so what's going on here? So this comes after Shortly after On August, 18 president Biden issued a memorandum to the secretary of education requesting that the department look into any action that they can take to prevent these mask mandate bands. The prohibition on Mask mandates and the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights has now sent letters to those five states that you mentioned Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee in Utah, informing them that they are opening and Investigation into these. These are states with, uh, prohibitions on mask mandates on universal mask mandates and that they're going to be investigating those through the lens of a civil rights issue, And I think this is what's novel or interesting about. This is That the Department of Education is looking at this and saying Because you are blocking, uh, the ability for schools to issue mask mandates and therefore use measures to protect kids from exposure to covid 19. And given that kids with disabilities are at a higher risk of developing severe illness due to covid 19. This barring the ability to issue a mask mandate, maybe therefore Preventing kids with disabilities from being able to safely access in person education. And so as the information from the release from the Department of Education on this said, it's basically, uh, that they may be preventing schools. These prohibitions may be preventing schools from meeting their legal obligations not to discriminate based on disability and to provide equal educational opportunities. Well, if they say if kids with disabilities, particularly certain ones that put them at risk of higher exposure or higher. Risk of severe illness to covid 19. You might not be of, uh, you might be violating these policies and rules. So we also mentioned off the top of the two most controversial states that have implemented such bans on mask mandates. Texas and Florida are not included. Why is that? Yes, so Florida, Texas, Alabama. Excuse me. Arkansas and Arizona are not included on this. That's it specifically mentioned in this release, Uh, information from the Department of Education, saying that the reason those states are not include In this are is because there are already ongoing court restrictions, injunctions or other court cases that are playing out. The department said, though, that it will monitor those situations. And if things change or if those injunctions go away, and so therefore the states are able to enforce these masks. Mandate prohibitions again. The Department of Education says it will step in and likely investigate them in the same manner. They're investigating these other states so basically saying, because there's already action ongoing, that's preventing those dates from enforcing the mandates as they currently sit. We're not investigating them. But if something changes we stand ready to do that in the future. But how much can the Department of education really do Because education is usually left after the states, if not the local districts? That's true, But you can't violate the civil rights and disability acts and things like that. So if the Department of Education can investigate these Departments or Excuse me these policies at the state level these laws that prohibit mask mandates and show perhaps to accord that these are discriminatory in a way Well that the court might toss out those laws. And so I think that that's what the Education Department is looking to do here. They also might be looking to just send a message. I mean, that's part of it, too, might just be saying. We're gonna We're gonna do everything we can to fight these things, and we'll even look at it from a civil rights lenses We have to, because, as I mentioned, Biden had directed the secretary of education, too. Looking to any means that he can take legally to to, uh, you know, look at these things and see if they can, uh, get around them essentially or or stop them from being enforced. And so that seems to be where this is going. But if there's a civil rights violation that could drastically change the abilities for those laws to exist. Alright. ABC is Mark Remillard.

"I think is focused on here. Mark remillard is our. Abc news correspondent out of new york. You'll find him on the twitter machine at mark. J remillard rem. I l. a. R. d. at mark j remillard On the twitter machine what's What's the response from the united states. Thus far i know jen sacchi was saying that. It's a false choice because the united states is sending out a bunch of vaccines around the world. This is a point. I think It seems that the biden administration response here is a little bit of Have your cake and eat it too. Which is the united states has procured so many doses And obviously over the last couple months here in the us. The challenge has not been so much supply it's been just getting people to actually get vaccinated but The the response from sake today was a little more of it. Seems like we can do both. We can continue to donate doses to around the world which the us has been doing. We've contributed millions of doses to the who's kovacs program which provides doses to lower income nations We've also just directly exported doses on our own to places like canada mexico south korea and others so The us i think than the biden administration responses. I let's be clear. There is not a recommendation that we need a booster shot at this point so the biden administration saying we're preparing for that possibility if that happens but we also are also exporting doses to other countries. doing our part to help. Now i think the. Who could probably say well but still every dose that you inject it in a third third dose for people is giving them further protection when they already have some protection especially against severe illness and death when there are healthcare workers elderly populations in poorer countries. That haven't even gotten any protection yet so again we might. You know it might be. We don't see eye to eye. Or the biden administration might not see ida i on this with world the world health organization about how this should be done But again the us only one country in this there are other countries in europe and western countries like that that have access as well and have a role to play in this. And the who wasn't calling out the us specifically it was calling out the g. Twenty countries And and their role in this not just the us. But i'm an american citizen. And as far as i'm concerned there is no other country. This is america. Get on board and get out News correspondent yeah right mark.

Whatever it might be who's Who's who's making sure vaccines get there. You mentioned the komax program is there. Is there anything else as pretty much. It's the kovac's program.

It is a very controversial type of study because particularly in this case, some have likened it to giving someone a poison without an antidote, because if you develop a severe case of covert 19 There's not a whole lot of treatments and well proven in documented treatment at our disposal. Unlike perhaps if you test somebody this way on another disease, where we have a long history of treatments available, so there is some concern in that respect, but on the other side of this benefit Is that you can start to flush out with which vaccines are effective very quickly because you could start to monitor them right then and there. Plus, there's no need to worry about community spread because You know, typically in a criminal clinical trial, you give 30,000 people. Half of them had the vaccine half have a placebo, and you let them go about their lives, and you wait to see which ones developed over 19. Which ones don't and you start to measure the effectiveness of a vaccine that way this way, You're monitoring it right there, So there are some benefits in terms of the time and that's part of the reason that the government I decided to back this, but it's a controversial decision on the way. Some doctors say This is very helpful when there's very little disease in the community. But in this case, there's a lot of disease in the community. Yeah, that's right. Part of the benefit of this is is in general. You don't have to worry about that community spread exactly. We're talking about where in a clinical trial, you know you've got to send people out into there into the world, and they just Have to go about their lives, and you'll know that some people got it. And some don't and so to do that. So you have to know that there is community spread are particularly in this case with Kobe have to know that you know you're not sending 30,000 people out there and none of them ever came across. The disease. So in this case, obviously with Coleman in most areas in the US, the UK and Europe In a lot of cases that's not concerned with covert 19, but typically with challenge trials. That is one of the benefits If you could do a study anytime, anywhere, you don't have to worry about it. So that doesn't seem to be as much of an overriding factor in in the desire to do that, in this case because of the spread of Copan 19, But but one of the benefits is the faster results essentially in the data. Plus, I think one of the other things that the organizers of the study of said, is that not only can you squashed the time that it takes to figure out how effective the vaccine is, but you can also monitor how the body responds to covert 19 from They want versus somebody goes down. The world gets eventually get sick and maybe they see a doctor eventually, Maybe they don't You know so this because you're directly exposing somebody. You can watch them from day one. How the body reacts having these moves in the body all of these things, and so it's not just necessarily looking at the vaccine, but also can help the understanding of the virus. Itself again. Not without it concerns, though, because there's certainly a risk in this in terms of your willingly taking a dose of 19, and that's why they need to watch them so closely to minimize those risks. A veces Mark Remillard. Thank you, Mark. Thank you.

"92 scattered showers and thunderstorms again. Then on Thursday fog in the morning high of 90 and showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, Larry Thanks, Marsh. Oh, it's 89 right now. Josh knows all about fog in the morning. That is I think part of the daily routine. What now? Hey, no, That's not true. That's working and the kids in the morning. You cannot have fog in the morning. You have to be more clear, for sure. All right. The Kenosha protesters and the police clashing for A second night after the shooting that happened there in Wisconsin. Let's bring in from ABC News and get the very latest mark Re Malard. Hey, Marc, Welcome to the show. And what is the very latest on this? Yeah. The attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing the family civil rights attorney is just wrapped up a press conference in Kenosha with the family of Jacob Blake. On a pretty impassioned called for fur piece. His mother, Julia Jackson, was ah, maybe one of the most powerful speakers that spoke during this press conference and She really, you know, didn't call for a thorough investigation and justice like we've heard in many of these press conferences before. Instead, she called for peace, and she seems to make it Larger than just what happened to her son. She said that the US is a house divided and she's praying for the police officers and their family but also praying for her son and other people have been affected by Incidences like this so called for peace and ah, and to tamp down the violence that's been occurring, and she said that if her son was aware of what was going on in the destruction, he would be very Unpleased. That is really, really positive and unbelievable. Information. Mark II. We had it on here in the studio. There's no sound because you know, we do a talk radio so but it was on and I did see her talking. But I am pleasantly surprised to hear that that is fantastic news. It was. It was a remarkable press conference. I mean, as the family spoke. Certainly there were the calls for a thorough investigation for thes police officers to be held responsible because it certainly as we've heard from Benjamin Crump. They believe this was unjustified and not a justified shooting by the police, and especially one that occurred in front of Jacob's kids. But of course, there's an investigation. Ongoing. The police really haven't said much about What they believe happened here. They haven't really said anything about the domestic violence are domestic disturbance call that led to the police showing up at this incident and then led to the shooting. They the person who recorded the video you know, many of us have seen and has gone viral. He said that he heard the officers shouting. Drop the knife. Now he's a little ways away, and But he said, I didn't see a knife so we don't know whether or not the police haven't even said whether or not they believe that Blake was armed in any way or not. So the police have not really said much investigation is ongoing. Could could take Some time for us to get some information from what they say happened, but it was very, very emotional press conference. At one point, it began with prayer. At one point, the father had to leave just because it was So emotional as a CZ one person I believe it was one of the attorneys was describing the injuries to his son, who is still alive, is in the hospital and apparently was undergoing surgery as they spoke, and they said he was You know, he has eight bullet holes in his body that he's you know, got a long road to recovery is most of his colon and small intestines are being removed. I mean, very, very serious injuries that he's faced. I actually heard the same thing with regard to these. Somebody yelling, Drop the knife that was in the video, and I think it was the same. The same guy, the one who took the video. The thing is with the video. You don't see what appears to be anything in his hands as he's heading toward the car, and then if if they were yelling it at that point before they open fire. Most of Jacob's body is behind that door and halfway inside the vehicle at that point as well, So it would be almost impossible to tell. And then also mark are you hearing they do not where Body cameras for the Kenosha police. They're correct. They don't have body. Yes, this become a secondary issue. In all of this is the fact that the City Council Years ago unanimously said that they recommend that the city's police department be outfitted with body cameras. But that has never happened. It never materialized. Even the mayor and the police chief at the time. Said. They were said they were in support of the idea. But then when it came time to really put up the money and purchased the cameras and move forward with the plan, things got delayed on and then so that's actually never come to fruition. Right now. They have a plan to essentially outfit the department. But it's been delayed all the way to 2022 right now. Police cruisers in the city are equipped with cameras, but we don't know. Whether or not those cameras captured any of this or any audio or anything like that. We just don't know that yet. Perhaps that will come out later. But yeah, example of where a body camera on officer Could perhaps provide some context because That video that we've all seen again. It's relatively far away. It's across the street, but it also doesn't show what led up to it. The prior you know the incident as it was occurring before The shooting occurred, and so there's a lot of missing context there. And this is where I think you're seeing. Some people say this should have been done a while ago. Mark Remillard ABC News Thanks for the very latest, appreciate you and stay safe and There also is news that Jacob Blake is paralyzed from the waist down just so that, too, and the doctors don't know if he's ever gonna walk again, the father saying. The spring that it's not permanent, as you would for your son if he were in that same situation, also the three young Children that were in the SUV at the time of the shooting..

May may be the reason behind the rise in this, these STI's and one of the main contributors to that being what they say is potentially dating apps is actually a one of the reasons that they may be seeing more non counters in these kinds of things.
