Winning Against Wokeness
"I want to play an audio clip for you guys. The left try to dog our home girl I'll say Bethany mandel and Carol markowitz have written a book called stolen youth. I want you guys to go out and get it. And it's about how the left devastated youngsters all across the country with these whack behind lockdowns that did nothing, but exacerbate anxiety, depression, bad grades, put our kids behind, you name it. Didn't do anything to help the kids. So they talk about this stuff and all this woke nonsense. CRT DEI. Climate change that are impacting our children today scare the crap out of them. All right, so go out and get the book double down on the left is going after. They went after Bethany mandel. You know what? Go ahead and get her book again, she co authored co authored it with Carol markowitz. This is me just wanting to fight back against the left. And you're gonna be able to do it with their book. Now they're not a sponsor or anything like that. But I think this is very, very important. This is how we fight back. All right, so they're gonna stick the media on one of ours. All right, all right, we're gonna help them sell more books. But I do wanna play an audio clip for you. So this is what this moment went viral. All right, again, Bethany mandel, she's the co author of stolen youth this moment went viral. I want you to understand the background because she wrote a column over the weekend. And she explained what was happening at the time. She goes on this show the rising a show that put on by the hill, which is an online publication, but they have a YouTube channel or a regular television cable channel. I'm not sure it's been a long time since I've seen the scene of the show, frankly. But she appeared on the show. And she had a little brain fart, if you will, in the middle of the interview. But in the background, this chick has 6 kids that she and her husband are homeschooling. She had just got on. She was just dealing with two of her kids. She heard one of the hosts, I believe, if I recall her column correctly, say something kind of outlandish, kind of a dig towards, you know, families that have a bunch of kids. So here she was dealing with her kids right before she gets on. She hears something from them that kind of sounds like a dig. She's postured ready to go on defense almost after she hears this. But she but she's on to talk about her book. So here's the audio clip of Bethany mandel, the liberals went absolutely nuts, but they're not gonna win. We're about to beat their behinds in just a sec, but I want you to hear this. Audio clip, number one, pop up or Sean. And for Americans consider themselves very liberal. And probably fewer of them consider themselves to be woke. And so, you know, when we started that year, would you mind defining well because it's come up a couple times that I just want to make sure we're all on the same page. So, I mean, woke is sort of the idea that. This is going to be one of those moments that goes viral. I mean, woke is something that's very hard to define, and we've spent an entire chapter defining it.
Karol Markowicz: The Inspiration to Write 'Stolen Youth'
"Yeah well what inspired you to write the book again folks the book is called stolen youth Carol markowitz and Bethany mandel you can pick it up right now It's available right now I strongly recommend you do I mean there are obviously so many stories out there about the travesty of what we're doing to the next generation But what was it COVID Was it the lockdowns I've ridden it for you myself and I can always tell you that moment I was like oh I got to write a book on that What was yours For us it really was COVID exposing how much children were being targeted in this country I think before COVID I look I lived in a really deep blue part of Brooklyn I lived in park slope I grew up in flatbush and bensonhurst but I was raising my kids in park slope And I would say that yeah it was liberal but it wasn't crazy And COVID exposed how insane it was getting and how insane it had gotten And I think that Bethany and I both saw the way children being targeted with the restrictions far worse than anybody else And we just felt like we had to speak up for kids But really the thing is also we needed to tell parents that all these books over the years of college kids being indoctrinated and how bad college campuses are They have to recognize that it's no longer college campuses It's starting far earlier It's happening in your kid's nursery schools And you have to do something about it This is the message of the book as you must fight
The Theft of Childhood With Karol Markowicz
"Said this for a while that the left aims to steal the youth to rob the innocence of our children. That's exactly the name of a new national bestseller, stolen youth by Carol markowitz and Bethany mandel, how radicals are erasing innocence and indoctrinating a generation and Carol joins us now. Carol welcome to the program. Hi, Charlie. Thank you so much for having me. Tell us about the book and how are our children's youth being stolen? The book is an exploration of the way the woke culture has taken over all of our institutions, all of our schools, organizations, licensing, organizations, basically every facet of society, and is now aiming all of their power at children to get them indoctrinated. And to separate the family in the book, we open with a history chapter on totalitarian societies and the way that this is not new. This is, you know, we have new words for it and we have new ideas that they're trying to push, but the idea of separating the child from his parents and getting that child indoctrinated into whatever idea you want them to have. That's a really old tale and we're seeing it happening in America today.
"markowitz" Discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts
"And now I'm addressing the issue of parents, children who want is happening to our children. I am preoccupied with the issue. The child abuse that the left is engaged in is one of the reasons that if there is a God and I believe there is and God is just, I believe this with utter sincerity, people on the left will be judged adversely by a good God. If for nothing else, I mean, they have a history of genocide, but even the non genocidal left. The damage deliberately done to children by the left in this country and in Britain and Canada is astonishing, state of California where I live, and I don't know if I am morally justified for even living here, because I pay taxes here. To an extremely corrupt and evil government. These are very serious matters, and they are dressed in a brand new book by two people, one of whom, I know and I'm a big fan of I've had her on a number of occasions, Carol markowitz, she is co authored with Bethany mandel, this book, she's a columnist for the New York Post stolen youth, how radicals are erasing innocence and indoctrinating a generation. If that's not self recommending, then nothing is, given who's written it and the subject. The book is up at them as prager dot com stolen youth. Carol markowitz, welcome back to the Dennis prager show. Hi, Dennis. Really nice to see you. Yes, the same here. Was I too severe and you can certainly say yes. I always tell guests you can differ with me. I don't think so. We opened the book with a history chapter on totalitarian leftism of the past and the ways that it has harmed children and divided families and caused mass destruction. And I don't think it's a stretch to say that this is happening in America today that the totalitarianism that we've all have feared in other places has arrived here and is happening. You know, last week, I'm on Instagram as all the old people like we are. And I saw a real of you speaking and saying that when you were in the Soviet Union, people used to look over their shoulder before speaking to you. And that now that happens to you in America, that when you're in an airport, somebody will come up to you and kind of look around before they start talking. And because they're afraid, that to me, I remixed it as the kids say on Instagram and I posted it on my Instagram and I said, this is what our book is about. It's this forced conformity where you're afraid to speak to Dennis prager in an airport is what we're afraid of happening to our children. That's right..
"markowitz" Discussed on NewsRadio WIOD
"Think that so much of this is the conformist push from the left to be like, we are okay with this. If you're not okay with this, maybe you're not part of our we. And that kind of in group thinking is really powerful. People really want to be part of the in group. And so when you see these women taking their kids, they just want to belong. That's what I think. I think that they're saying that we do this now, we're okay with this. And if you're not, you're not in the in group. So we talk a lot about conformity and stolen use. We talk a lot about the way it's forced on people that conformity. But some people can form easier than others. And some people want to belong so badly that they'll do this kind of thing to their children. Speaking of Carol markowitz, co author of stolen youth, how radicals are racing innocence and indoctrinating a generation and of course give our regards Carol to Bethany mandel, your co author, done a great job on this book. The teachers unions. Do you go after you go after those commie evildoers as well? I'm just wondering, does that? Because it feels like to me, they're the political muscle that gives cover to the most lunatic indoctrination measures that are happening in the schools Absolutely. And so throughout COVID, the thing that I would say about the teachers unions is they're not particularly strong. It's that the politicians are weak. So they prey on these weak politicians who don't stand up for children and don't stand up for the right thing. And they force them to do what they want. And this isn't only Democrats. I think Marilyn Maryland's governor was Republican and he really didn't stand up for kids at all. These people are forcing their way into our kids lives. And the fact that people are letting it happen, you can't really just hold the teachers unions accountable just them anymore. It has to be all the people who are giving them power, all the politicians who don't do the right thing, and all the school administrators who continue to listen to these people. You can have your own opinion and say no, I'm not doing this. And the one thing I want to really point out to people is that this leftism, this wokeism is deeply unpopular. They have to do it through force because there's no other way to do it. They have to do it through secrecy, and they have to make sure that parents don't know what's really going on. You know, I like to say they don't run on let's get porn in the school library platform because they know the parents won't like that. So they have to do it in secrecy. And the reason for our book, we wanted to write stolen news so that people will not have the excuse to be like, I didn't know. I didn't hear about this. I wasn't sure. You know, it's happening. You have to fight it. Carol, I think you nailed the answer about what these moms are thinking on going to these transgender shows that this sort of craziness. One thing that I wonder, and I think this is something that we can all do a better job talking about. This concept of banned books and bucket I have been hammering it, but I think it'll make sense to you as a parent as well. When a movie is rated R we don't say the movie is banned because it isn't. It's just not appropriate for all ages to consume. I think this is one of the things that Florida has to push back the executives and everybody else, but also people in our world. It's actually totally normal to decide what is age appropriate for your child. And the way that band is being defined, it's as if the book is being taken off the shelves and burned and torn away, which is actually what left wingers want to do. Everybody I hear is just saying, hey, there is a time to learn about sexuality. It's just not when you're 6, right? In the same way and everybody understands it in the concept of movies because most 6 year olds don't go to R rated movies, but we don't say they're banned from the R rated movie. That's right. But that's really giving these people the benefit of the doubt that they're trying to be honest about it. And I don't see a lot of evidence that they are. They know these books are inappropriate. They know what's being pulled out of the libraries in Florida. Are deeply inappropriate. So when you have these arguments, it's always like, that's not really happening. And then you're like, you're ten examples of pornographic books in school libraries. It is actually happening. And they're like, well, that's a really small percentage of all the books of all the schools and in Florida. And so obviously this is crazy. The argument keeps shifting because they know they're in the wrong here. If they and it goes for so many things, if they would just say, okay, no pornographic books in school libraries. And that would be it. We would just pull the pornographic books and that's it. If they would just say a lot of these teenage girls who declare themselves trans are just going through a phase and we shouldn't do anything about it. We shouldn't be giving them puberty blockers or anything like that. That crisis would be mitigated. But they won't do that because the ideology comes first. And the ideology says that if conservatives want it absolutely, we have to fight tooth and nail to keep it. And it's a really damaging way to treat children. And so installing youth, we go through all the different ways that this is happening throughout society and it's not just in schools. It's everywhere. When you go to your pediatrician's office and you say that my kid is having some gender questions, the pediatrician has only one line that they are allowed to deliver to you. And that's to absolutely confirm that that child is probably trans and to affirm their new identity. And that's a crazy way to behave and no normal society should be accepting this. The book is stolen youth, how radicals are racing innocence and indoctrinating a generation, go Google it, go pick up your copy of stolen youth by Carol markowitz and Bethany, mandel, Carol, our friend, and fantastic. Thank you so much for being with us. Great to talk to you. Thank you
"markowitz" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"At hedge fund AQR. He is the author of multiple books, including expected returns and his latest book, investing amid low expected returns, he has worked with such August entities as the Norway government pension funds, and the Singapore investment corp. He has received multiple awards for his research and writing, including Graham and dot award, Harry markowitz award, the CFA institute's leadership award amongst many, many others, auntie elman, welcome to Bloomberg. Thanks, Barry. I'm really looking forward to this. Same here. So first I found the book to be quite fascinating. Very in depth, and you managed to take some of the more technical arcana and make it very understandable, we'll circle back with that. Let's start just by talking about your career. You began as a Central Bank portfolio manager in Finland. So yeah, my really first stroke of luck, I think, was getting that job. Before that I had been nerdy kid with interest in esoteric things like royal family trees or track and field statistic, not trading. And when I was studying in university, economics, I did not really get the passion. The passion came when I went to invest the country's foreign exchange reserves there. And it was very much a global government bond market. So thinking about macro picture. They never then nor later had much interest in a single stock picking. So thinking of the big picture and there were some lovely lovely things like, I was there either October 87 crashed and saw two year yields falling in overnight from 9 and a half percent to 7 and a half percent. You don't see those moments. Yeah, absolutely. So anyway, so that was a great great learning experience and then my second related stroke of lacrosse that professor Ken French came there. To our enjoyment, he came to educate us in 1989 and what we were doing, what we should be doing. And I was enthusiastic kid there. Well, by that time I was already almost 28, and he, when I was expressing some interest about studying in the U.S., he was only used to do it soon, he out of old enough to do that. And a few months later, I was in the U.S. and it was so lucky in my life because that year I met then cliff asked and John Liu, who later founded AQR. So as my fellow students, I met my wife there. She was MBA student from Germany, and it would have left a few months later. University of Chicago University of Chicago. So all of this, all of this lack sort of was related to my wonderful first job. And gene farmer teaches there and his research partners can French. Both cliff actually all three. Cliff John and I, we had farmer and Frances our dissertation chairman and that's a small source of pride. Little intimidating. So you go from Chicago, is that how you ended up at salmon brothers? Yeah. So that relationship actually already started when I was a portfolio manager. Finally, in fact, one of these Mike Lewis is very good guys was one of my sales, sales context. He didn't have many good guys, but one was anyway. So and I got to know people like Martin liebovitz before. I went to Chicago and I think he helped he may have again had a hand somewhere there and so when I finished my studies it was pretty clear that I wasn't academic enough I wanted to go to either buy side or sell side I even talked to that G somewhere cliff and Joel aware didn't go there thought from my 86 experience advice I did. Wrong choice. Anyway, so I would then went to Salomon brothers. Did one research for a couple of years on yield curve strategies, then moved to Europe that was always the deal with my wife to be a bunch strategist at Salomon for many years. Initially very discretionary, but gradually becoming more and more systematic and eventually turned from this customer oriented role to prop trading for a while. And then how did you end up with brevin Howard from these times when I was strategist? I was talking to my great people about some LTCM and then various other people and including Alan who came actually from Salomon. And so somewhere all three sort of invited me to try to be a mini cliff systematic systematic trader with a small team there at brevin Howard, which was in some sense great, but it is sort of a misfit because it's a very discretionary place. And so trying to do systematic in that environment was harder and I think none of us were doing extremely well none of us were doing easterly badly, but it just didn't become a great fit. Yeah, yeah, yeah. But on the other hand, it was just a great place. Well, first to try it. But the second thing is that when 2008 came along, it was one of the few places that we were making money, so it was a very comfortable vantage point for that environment. How did you go from being a mini cliff ass nest to a maxi cliff asset? Yeah. So I had stopped at systematic training, but I had been talking with those guys off and possibly joining. It was a matter of them opening European office because that's where I was physically. And so that was approaching. It also helped that I basically decided to write this book expected returns. And when I wrote it, I asked cliff to write the forward for it. And that experience reminded I think both of us how aligned our thinking is based on this common common background. And that somehow I think motivated them. I think they have to offer and me to say yes, yes, to the idea of joining them. Really, what I would say is getting to my natural home and the number 2011. So you've been there for more than a decade. You're now co head of portfolio of solutions. What is that role like? So the portfolio solutions group advice is mainly institutional clients on all kinds of challenges that they haven't taken about expected returns portfolio construction risk management, et cetera. And then in addition, we write lots of papers. I speak in many conferences and then in addition to that, I've had a hand in designing and improving some of our strategies, especially related to style premia, that was something

"Every single photographer and my favorite one to this day was emailed scott markowitz and hey scott markowitz like my name is killing dorian. Three photos of me skiing.

They coached me. They helped me and before that you know. I started going out with photographers every week. And that started to lead to more sponsors and that started to kinda create an effect a ripple effective like breaking my toe just a little toe into the industry by no means. Was i getting paid. That's a whole nother section of my life. But i was able to at least get my foot in the door and that that sort of started it and then i had to do a lot seasonal work so we were talking about earlier. How a lot of women. Even some of the top tier have to have second jobs That's definitely what happened to me. And so i was. I was getting products from companies. You know maybe getting some travel budget here and there. But i still had to work and unfortunately my work was conflicting with my ability to travel and so i figured i was like i need to get a summer job of some sort and it was either fishing like what mckenna peterson does or firefighting and at the time. I didn't really like fish. And i was really scared of the ocean so i figured finding forest fires was probably the better move and so i applied for before force fi- firefighting jobs and got one..
"markowitz" Discussed on KQED Radio
"He ran the World Trade Center Health Clinic in Queens, New York, and from 2011 to 2020. He served on the scientific and technical advisory Board of the World Trade Center Health program. He's an epidemiologist who now works with the advocacy group 9 11. Health Watch. Dr Markowitz. Welcome to the news hour. Thank you for making the time that World Trade Centre Health programme. It is a federal program just for people who aren't familiar. Give us a sense of the scale and scope of it. What kind of support does it provide? How many people has it helped it serves over 110,000 people at this point Three quarters of them are responders who worked at ground zero firefighters, police and the like, and they will remain there. About a quarter of them are neighborhood residents or survivors. It's a very large program, providing both routine. Annual monitoring for most of them, but also care for selected health conditions that have been deemed to be related to 9 11 work or residents near Lyon, 11 and 20 years later. Do you have your arms around the universe of people who need help? In other words, is everyone who is eligible for that support already reached out part of the program. Well, you know, actually, in the last eight months or so there are over 500 people each month who are joining the program. So that means there clearly is a untapped population even though over 110,000 are members now this program clearly there are more who could be served. What about the medical impact? What sort of the range of health conditions you're dealing with? We just heard about COPD and its devastating impact. Heard about stories of cancer linked to that day. What else? Well, you know, the they're 40% have arrow digestive conditions, so what this means is under asthma or other respiratory problems. Or gastroesophageal reflux disease, acid reflux, but 40% that's about 45,000 people in that program. Cancer is a common problem over 20,000 responders and residents in the program have developed and been treated for cancer. An additional 20,000. People have mental health problems, mainly post traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety and the range of other conditions as well. So At the majority of people in the program have one or more of these certified health conditions, so the program was set up for a 90 year duration right? But there are now concerns it's going to run out of money by 2024 or 2025. How did that happen? And what more is needed now? What it happened because Congress did its best to estimate what kind of funding would be needed over a certain period of time. But in fact, more people have gotten ill and more people have joined the program that expected And those illnesses are very costly. Now the health care that's given for the responders and the residents is very good health care. It's excellent care, and in fact, just a recent research study looking at cancer among the program participants has demonstrated that they do better in this program. Then they would have if they were part of the general population of New York state, in fact, 28% better in terms of cancer outcome either cure or long term survival. So the program is providing excellent care. It costs money. It means that if the money runs out in 2024 25 that the program will be home to be able to continue. That's a big problem to folks may remember back in 2019. It took former daily show host Jon Stewart publicly shaming Congress to get funds reauthorized for the program. Are you confident that it will get the funds it needs now? I am confident because I think people understand. The other thing is that you know the people who are cared for in this program. They're really all over the country. I mean, the majority are here in New York and New Jersey and Connecticut. But there are there are thousands of people in Florida who are part of this program thousands of people in South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, so they're really spread throughout the country International care program, So I think people I think people in Congress will understand that the other thing I should mention is that you know it's 20 years now. The most toxins don't cause problems right away the toxins that cause chronic conditions like cancer, neurological disease, etcetera. They normally wait 15 or 20 years before they cause their problems. Now, in this program, we've seen an accelerated development of problems. But the worrisome now thing now is now that we've had 20 years is that if these toxins act like they normally do, we have to be very careful, very vigilant about the health of these program participants and make sure that if new problems develop that we catch it early 20 years later. We can only help those who need the help can get it. That is Doctor Steven Markowitz, board member of the advocacy group 9, 11, Health Watch. Thank you for your time. Thank you very much. And we certainly do hope they can get the help that they need. And that's the news hour for tonight. I'm Judy Woodruff. Thank you. Please stay safe.

"Back in Clay. Travis Buck Sexton show. We're talking about the president's address at five o'clock eastern on Covid Appreciate all of you hanging out with us. Encourage you to go download the podcast. You can search out my name, Clay. Travis. You can search out Buck Saxons name. You can also find us. Anywhere on social media, and I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of you Texas and Arkansas fans this weekend in Fayetteville, Arkansas, for a big football game, But I don't know if you saw this stat. I wanted to hit you with it because One of the things that's happening right now with Covid is they are trying to terrify parents all the time. We were talking about this after the show ended yesterday, CNN's always got up a headline. Children, Hospitalizations, pediatric dangers, Everything else this stat. Blew my mind, but more kids have been shot in Chicago this year. Then have died with covid in the country. Think about that stack for a minute. More kids shot in Chicago this year. Chicago alone then have died with Covid in the entire country. This is Joe Kinsey, a story that he's got up on out kick right now. I was reading that and I was like, Wow, this is unbelievable. This is one of the areas where I will say I actually have underestimated the degree of ignorance. And I've dug into this more when when you mentioned that there were parents because I talked to Matt Walsh the daily wire about it as well Offline. Talk to other people. My friend here Carol Markowitz, who does great work for the New York Post. She's been a total, you know, Freedom advocate during the craziest periods of the lockdowns here. And whenever I talk to them about this, they say, no, there really are a lot of parents. I mean, it's not a majority. But there are a lot of parents who think their kids going to get covid and die. Sheriff that's horrified of his terrible pure disinformation from CNN running headlines about pediatric hospitalizations Way up Well, if their way up from you know 50 to 70. I mean, this is not a massive public health crisis by any stretch of the imagination What people see the headline. They see the way it's being manipulated, and parents are terrified. Clay. You've got kids. I don't It's on parents, right? It's one thing you want to. You want to kind of YOLO. You want to go out there and go to big events and super spreaders or whatever they're calling it also known as Living your Life, That's on you, Right, But when you're making decisions for your kids As a parent. That's a whole other level of responsibility. And if you've got bad information because of all the Fauci Heights, and you have your fears being played upon, and Jen Psaki, let's play this like how much of your lives going to change? Basically, she was asked, and she had kind of a snide remark. There will be no steps the president announces tomorrow. Absolutely well. Any of those new steps influence the.

"Sue the most fucking modern one full on race cars five hundred horsepower. It was pushy. Even that like full dog was pushy. At a certain point you have to realize what you've got yeah Will it help probably. Maybe you're still fighting the programming. But you're still fighting. And also what kind of st and also like. I personally think that's more of lake roll bars at that point. I think if you know what. I mean like if you if you get if you lessen the roll bar and you make the rear shocks actually Less stiff i think that then the wheels can kind of go. Their own wheels gonna do their own thing. And i think that will lead to more overseer. I think but what do i don't i don't know the fine tuning aspects of of this type of stuff. I really don't. I'm the wrong person ask. I think it will help. It might be diminishing returns though considering what the cost would be and all that stuff at the end of the day. You're just fighting the physics of your own car. well look far which i reviewed. It has an edith and it does a much better job of sending power to the rear than last gen did but is it still break by is still like torque by break. it has torque. Victory by break has edith. Yeah so it can directly electronic locking different correct so half the half the talking to the rear differential and then it can send one hundred percent to one of a hundred percent. Were percent to one wheel. Kind of settle a ton of power to the outside right wheel or little baby driveshaft. They can only take fifty percent of the tour. By the way what's dettori is like three hundred so it so you're getting a hundred and fifty pounds of torque roughly two one wheel or the other but even with all of that new electronics new hardware et cetera. In less we were in race mode on the right kind of corner. it's still felt from. We'll drive ish. Right was more revised than the old one but it still wasn't great so i'll also argue though like there's like it. There's nothing wrong with being front wheel drive driving. We'll drive car.

I if you're hoping for you're not gonna you're not Adam says do. I have any thoughts on why it seems like legal weed has ruined of the social aspects of pot. Well that's an interesting thought You know certainly when you're doing something illicit with your friends. That's a bonding experience. More so than going to the store by yourself getting your weed and going home and smoking it but then you turn forty. And that's out the window. I think. I think it's more about age. And just my life you know. then it is about The the social aspects. that is the legality. I certainly was using weed socially in here in california when it was legal the whole time as it happens a lot of a lot of my weed. Smoking friends left los angeles over the last years for variety of reasons completely unrelated to weed And which just left me by myself with my weed and so circumstance may have been different And it and it and that doesn't necessarily has to do with it being illegal not i say i haven't smoked podcast one hundred thousand years but my friend who do smoke pot. They're like in their fifties and nothing will change. Their course are still smoking tons of pot and they have been for thirty some years. You look at my brother in law and his wife are social we. They smoke we with all their friends. And and and it is a thing like i. And they're they're they're you know they're my age. It's not the kids. And so it's i think it's more circumstance than it is legal or illegal but i understand the point of the question Verb name when my dad was on i. i asked if he was proud of my weeds sponsorship. Now that i'm off has there been. I told you so type situation. My father is a really good human and has never ever ever put me in an. I told you so situation. Ever allow Only tried to take it. He he's tried to give me good advice where he can He did not judge me for smoking weed when i was smoking weed. He didn't judge me to my at least outwardly. To me by the way people listening at home.

This president is team may understand Delaware politics, but I'm not sure they understand the difficulties of Delaware restaurants. How else to explain his proposed his proposal to raise the minimum wage for our servers and bartenders from $2.23 an hour to $15 an hour, an increase of more than 400%, which would be a death knell for our industry. And she writing in The Wall Street Journal, is urging Joe Biden to be something he's not. Leader. Moderate. Maybe this is a cautionary tale, and I don't mean to pile on, but I mean to some extent. Better. LeRoi. Maybe she is a cautionary tale for people who Make political decisions based on Personality rather than on policy. Voted from to save this country, but, uh I guess my business gonna have to be sacrificed. I suppose she wasn't ready for that. I don't know how she could have missed it. Don't know how she could have missed that about administration would be Bolshevik. Bernie staffers implementing Obama policies as we're seeing play out in real time. I should say Obama staffers, I gotta reverse Obama staffers. Implementing Bolshevik Bernie policies as we're seeing play out real time. How was that unclear? You think they care that the CBO projects of $15 minimum wage mandate would cost 1.4 million jobs? You're gonna have to spill a little blood to create heaven on Earth. As all authoritarians say. Oh, and by the way, this sum Uh, Job loss that has occurred and continues to Remember how 2000 and 2000 and the great recession was a man session. This is the opposite. Carol Markowitz had a good piece in your post talking about this where the feminist The National Women's Center noted that the December jobs numbers 140,000 jobs lost. It was 156,000 jobs. That women lost while men actually gained 16,000 jobs in November. Even rights. Marco, it's even more female workers may have felt forced to voluntarily quote unquote give up their jobs to be home looking after kids exiled from their school buildings at the behest of the powerful teachers unions. Oh, and as CNN reports. The job losses hit black and Hispanic women disproportionately. Feminists are supposed to care about minorities along with women, aren't they? Mm confusing times on DA. Among those confused is Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary. She had this exchange with Fox News is Peter Doocy. Continued exchange over the cancelation, the keystone pipeline with other pipelines in the crosshairs and those 11,000 jobs that have reportedly been lost. Those green jobs that are coding jobs that those people are going to have access to one to those come online, by administration's gonna let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers whether it's pipeline workers or construction workers. Who are either out of work or will soon be out of work, because well by E. O when it is and where it is that they can go for their green job, And that is something the administration has promised. There is now a gap. So I'm just curious when that happens when those people from the count on that well, it's certainly welcome, you tow present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won't be getting a green job. Maybe next time you're here you can present that would be getting green jobs, So I'm just asking When that happens, Richard trumped up who is a friend, Longtime friend of Joe Biden says. About that day one. He stone Theo, he says. I wish he president has cared that were carefully with the things that he did second by saying. Here's where we are creating the jobs. So there's a partial evidence from Richard Trunk to. Well, you didn't include all of his interview you would you like to include the rest? So how about this, But the Laborers International Union of North America, said the Keystone decision will cost 1000 existing union jobs and 10,000 projected construction jobs well what Mr Trump. Lucca, also indicated in the same interview was that President Biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure. And laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also help tackle the climate crisis. And, as the president has indicated, when he gave his prime time address to talk about the American rescue plan. He talked about his plans to also put forward a jobs plan in the weeks or months following and he has every plan to do exactly that. Yes. So what's the big deal? You lost your job yesterday? President Biden is going to get around to proposing a jobs plan in the weeks or months to come. You know, again, there's gonna be a little blood spilled when you're creating heaven on Earth, So just chill out, man. She's also an idiot. What does that mean present? My evidence about the jobs are not going to get. I'm asking you when they're going to get jobs. It's just idiotic. By the way it feels FL CEO President Richard Trump goes, sat down with some fungible reporter for Axios and was asked about this. Here's Trump con the Keystone Pipeline. Cancelation. Can you explain why The president was right. Well. I wish you hadn't done that on the first day because The laborers international was right. It did and will cost us jobs in the process. If I wish he had pared that more carefully with the thing that he did second by saying, Here's where we're creating jobs, we could do mine reclamation. We can fix leaks, and we can fix seeps and create hundreds of thousands of jobs and doing all of that stuff. You think bite and realizes that that was.

"Welcome back to the dam. Prop shows sort of a remarkable reaction from ST Andrew of Covert 19 are General Dwight D. Eisenhower of the covert era. That would be intra Cuomo. Governor of New York, reacting to the report that nursing home deaths in New York state may have been undercounted by more than 50%. This from the Democrat State attorney general. Here was the reaction. Third of all deaths in this nation of from nursing homes. New York state were only about 28% only but well below the national average in number of deaths and nursing homes. Who cares? 33 28 died in the hospital died in a nursing home. They died. Right. Who cares? Now is not the time to be obsessing about data or pointing fingers. Isn't that right? Francis Menton. He is the Manhattan can contrarian and he joins us now, Francis. Thanks for being with us. Appreciate it. Great to be here. Who cares? You know what is this concern about nursing homes versus long term care facilities versus restaurants and bars. I mean, it's not like we're making policy based on where we see the highest incidence of death. Francis, you're talking about my governor here. Now. I know they're full. Yeah. Oh, I know, saying Andrew of covert. I know, Of course, the issue that he totally hope you missed in that little audio clip that you just played. And that the attorney general of New York, who was justice, creepy, by the way, ondas politicized is actually bringing out is that that 28% of deaths in nursing homes in New York? Has been a Nintendo finally suppressed number. It's undercounted, and it's probably well over 33% in New York. And, of course, the other thing that he's missing is that what his health commissioner did under his authority and direction? Has ordered people as the old people as they recovered from covert in hospitals to be put into nursing homes, which transmitted the disease within the nursing homes to the most vulnerable populations. So so who cares where they die? There's a lot of reason to care about what Cuomo did. Well, here's the other thing he's leaving. That's okay. Who cares where they did? How much is the aggregate number of people who died? And how does New York State compared to the rest of the nation there, Governor? Yes, well, we're number two at New Jersey's actually worse, But New York eyes number two and deaths per million as you probably know slightly under New Jersey but far worse than the states that often get Criticized for being open like Florida or Texas or South Dakota, and by the way restaurants are completely closed in my neighborhood. It's so pitiful. Walk around at night temperature last night was 22 degrees outside. I guess Chicago was probably even called her. But 22 is plenty cold and Small numbers of people at restaurants outside with a heat lamp bundled up in park is trying to eat outside. It's So sad, Well and sand and on the school front as well. I mean, the the effort to press T to get schools reopen to give the appearance that you're still gonna have a school year. New York like we're seeing in Chicago, like we're seeing in L. A Where there's even if you were to have in person schooling resume, there's so much fear that has been engendered. As Carol Markowitz has written about the year post. You basically have washed away the school year, two were hoping Carol, a parent of York City public school Children hoping to get back in the fall. That's the best we can hope for. There is actually some in person going on in the New York City schools, but it's again said and pitiful..

It Um, you know about 4% ish had some form of Cove it much less Okay, much less. This is across 30,000 people. S Oh, So now if you're if you're gonna tell me That You know, the chance is less than 5% that you could even get Cove. It. And think about this. You're going to be around other people If they're vaccinated, too. This is now 0.5%. I'm sorry. This is now 5% of 5%. You start doing the math on this. And it's you know what one in 20 and one in 20 that you would, even if exposed to Cove it? That's one and 400 that the second person Is going to actually have a risk of contracting codename you, and now you play this out. This is how herd immunity works. So it's not just that you are very unlikely to get it. But somebody around you also has the vaccine is very unlikely to get it and just keeps playing out. But it's never going to be entirely zero is the point. You know they're going to be people out there who have the anal unfortunate reality of a severe peanut allergy where if it even has particles in the air, they could go into shock. We can't protect people 100% and we shouldn't be forced to try. That is what is happening right now, With the latest mentality, you're seeing it. You could go to a search. You'll find it online people saying, you know S so here's where we've gone to. I used to say, why don't we mask up for the flu and never have if it's so effective and so important, and if it saves just one life? People that were masked maniacs were saying Shut up. This is worse than the flu. That's it. That's just your flu, bro. That's irrelevant on bits, not a relevant because it's the exact Argumentation. They're using applied to a different circumstance. So they just shouted it down because it was inconvenient because clearly what it shows is a long history of society, accepting that we cannot stamp out entirely. Influenza and influenza deaths and that it's not something that we should try. Through the measures that we're talking about here if we got a vaccine great, and we do take vaccine for flu year in year out, but it's only you know, 40 to 60% effective depending on the year. But we under We don't make people mask. We don't shut down businesses. We don't do all these things for the flu. And we pointed that out to show that she we lived in a society where we understood that there will be some risk to living your life from some diseases that are out there. They didn't like that because it was inconvenient for their argument. So they said, Shut up. Don't talk about that. Now you know what they're doing now we're getting to the end of this pandemic. Probably in the next six months. We'll actually get the vaccination at the level that we need. But now we're coming again. This is saying, Yeah, you know what we probably should mask up for flew to that will save even more lives flew virtue, signaling masking is now a serious thing, and it's going to gain steam too. Is going to get seen because it goes to this part of people's brains where they think I'm a good person. I like science. I'm one of the smart people so everyone should have to do this, too, for the flu. I would say that everybody then should also have to do this for the common cold. Some people who are immuno compromised. Not a lot. But some people who are immuno compromised our At risk of getting they can develop. You know, viral pneumonia from what starts out as a as a common cold infection that can happen cold can get much worse. Specially if you're severely immuno compromised your elderly So we're all gonna wear masks all the time. Now forever. And when you wear them when they tell you to wear them So remember, it's not as though we even get the benefit of perfect continuous mask usage. That's not that's not the reality, which is why these lockdowns and mass policies have obviously failed. It's because you wear until you sit down the restaurant. You wear it until you adjust it. You wear it until you start coughing. What you know, now you're now you're now you're just breathing air like everybody else. Or you cough your germs in the air with everybody else around you. Right, so it's it's always is highly highly in perfect. Mandate that's been put in place as we know, but now they're going to be arguing in favor of it. Let me go back to this. This piece that Carol Markowitz writes in The New York Post. Meanwhile, Gavin Yemma, a professor of global health and public policy at Duke, urges people to wear and 95 high filtration masks under cloth masks. Who decided we should aim for a risk free society. If two masks are better than one. Why not? 34 or five? Why not? Eight. For that matter, Why don't we reduce speed limits everywhere to 10 MPH and definitely a move that would dramatically reduce Car accidents. Some experts seem almost spiritually invested in forestalling a return to normalcy, and so does the incoming by administration and quote. Because if you listen to this show know that I have been saying for months. Four months and months. Just wait. They're going to say you're wearing the wrong masks. Just wait. They're going to tell you it was really the 95. Maskell. How did I know that? Those who listen to show No that again for months I've been saying just wait. They're going to tell you you really need to masks. Two masks better than one. Into that, I just say Wow. We've lost so many people to Cove it and they're not willing to go to three masks. Are they not willing to take this? Seriously? I'm a triple master. You know, this is like turning into the razor blades where it went, You know, four billion to blade three blades. Four blades. Eight blades, You know, I mean, how close a shave do you really need right? Well, that's what we're doing with masks, and I saw it coming. If you look at my Twitter feed, although I know they're trying to purge everything now. I'm on record with this. I have been telling you, They will say these things, and now they are being said publicly by health experts. How did I know? Because I know what these people are doing. I know what their mentality is. I understand the game that they're playing. I understand that they are now they're invested in this because God forbid, we all figure out that what they've been telling us to do along just made us all more depressed, more harassed and did not bring anywhere near the health benefits they pretended and I'm talking about things like locking down Millions of people from their from their offices, telling them not. They told you not to see your family over Thanksgiving. They told you was reckless to see your loved ones over Christmas. And then they went and did those things. They still say it publicly Why?
