"Many of them have left their jobs. Now have any of these systems. Ben improved i mean. We're we're in the middle of another surge in infections right now. I know it's not really the same as like scrambling to figure this out at the beginning of the pandemic but we're being hit hard by delta. Are these problems that persist or have we figured out. I don't know how to fix some of this. These problems still exist today. Which is huge concern for public health officials in federal officials alike. Who are in the middle of trying to figure out how to contain delta look. Some states have made improvements to their to their data platforms. They've hired new vendors. New contractors got new kinds of systems in place and tried to train staff. But it's nowhere near where it needs to be particularly because they don't have the funding that they need to improve this entire process yet. President biden has allocated tens of millions of dollars to this issue specifically in his budget The cdc has promised to divert that money in the coming months but this is still a process and it will take years so we're nowhere near where we need to be right now. Whose fault is this. you said. We should've updated a lot of this stuff like ten years ago. i mean. why didn't we end. Who who's that up to. It's up to congress in the federal government to make sure that public health departments across the country have the funding. They need I think part of this is because we've been battling other challenges in the public health sphere for some time that took people's thinking away from the data modernization issue Onto other issues. You know after nine eleven there were as a lot of money that was put toward things like bioterrorism prevention or Making sure our public health departments you know had the resources they need to fight things like anthrax rate and so that was a huge talking point in focal point after nine eleven and then things shifted under the obama administration where we were trying to fight disease overseas. So there was a bulla their zeka. There are all sorts of other global viruses that we were trying to dedicate our resources to you know we did have flare ups with for example. H one n one But it was almost as though those flare ups here in the us were not big enough to grab the attention of the stakeholders at in the federal government to make them see that. We needed more resources. For key surveillance and for data modernization improvements in part of the problem is that this is just a swiss cheese type of problem whereby every state has almost a different kind of data system they use to track reportable diseases or infectious diseases. And so getting every single state on board to be able to change their systems and sort of work together is is a huge task and not every state health department is willing to make those large changes because they're so used to their old systems and their staff is trained with their old systems. So it's really about finding ways to get the right kind of technology in front of these public health officials where they can use it. They know how to use it. It could work well and that they're comfortable with it and they get the right people in place you know how to use these systems and that's going to be a huge struggle months and years to come erin banco.

"Today. Hope you're having a great Monday. There's a lot of things coming up. It's a flag day and a few other surprises as well. You know, Israel is the best Middle East ally of the United States and the United States, is Israel's best advocate. The entire world over. They have a new leader now and before I forget, I just want to call your attention to, uh, in the business insider. There's an article about The new leader of Israel, Naftali Bennett. And he is a tech millionaire son of Berkeley parents left wingers. And he'll be taking over. From Benjamin Netanyahu. And I just find it fascinating because when it comes to common sense, I think that is why Benjamin Netanyahu appealed to conservatives around the world because conservatives we latch onto common sense and just like President Donald J. Trump. Wanting to put America first Benjamin Netanyahu. Wants to put Israel first. Here's rush talking about the drive byes. Lashing out at B B. Netanyahu to me is no different than you and me, and he's ideologically his values. His country is an ally of ours, and they have the same Judeo Christian ethic that we have there the one lone outpost of allied status in that region We have, and we've got the American president. And his administration trying to eliminate it trying to defeat it. That's worth defending. To me. Conservatism the right things. The right values are worth defending. Don't don't mean that make you think I need to make an excuse for what I've been doing. I'm explaining it Get up every day and I see the drive by media Hell bent on defeating Netanyahu. If Netanyahu loses, Iran gets a nuclear weapon, and maybe they do anyway. We don't want Iran with a nuclear weapon. Nobody in that region does accept Iran and maybe Hamas and Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, you name it. But other than that the peace loving people have no desire for this. Our president seems to want the Iranians to get one. It's a Matter of grave concern. That is what it's about to me. So I believe Western civilization is under attack everywhere, particularly here. The cultural rot that's taking place in America is the result of an attack on Western civilization. The multicultural curricula as an attack. On Western civilization. Much of the left is attacking Western civilization. Benjamin Netanyahu is one who seeks to defend it. So he's an ally. So your real question is. Why was the media covering this election so much? Why did they care so much? This New York Times editorial is just I I. It's so filled with hatred and rage from the from the headline and Israeli election turns ugly. And then there are terms like desperate and craven duplicity, outrageous demagogy. Demagogy inflammatory, subversive fearmongering. Those are just some of the terms used to describe Benjamin Netanyahu in this New York Times editorial. As in this, Mr Netanyahu showed that he was desperate and craven enough to pull out all the stops on Monday, he promised that if his Likud faction remained in power He would never allow the creation of a Palestinian state, thus repudiating a position he had taken in 2009 his behavior in the past six years aggressively building Israeli homes on land that likely would be within the bounds of a Palestinian state and never engaging, seriously negotiations. Has long convinced many people that he has no interest in a peace agreement. No interest in a peace agreement. The only thing he cares about his peace for Israel. That's the thing he cares about the peace and security of the people of Israel, and he's not going to negotiate it away. And for this, he is hated and despised. Israel's election has done a lot to reveal the challenges facing the country in the intentions of the men who seek to lead it, says The New York Times Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's outright rejection of a Palestinian state. And his racist rant against Israeli Arab voters on Tuesday. Showed that he has forfeited any claim to representing all Israelis, and you see my friends just exact opposite. Benjamin Netanyahu is protecting the nation of Israel and all who reside there. He is not going to give up its security. He is not going to negotiate away. It's peace. There it is, so it's very common sensical, and I think that's what attracts people from around the world to leaders. Like B B. Netanyahu and President Donald Trump, because they are elected and put in positions to lead, defend, protect, help their own country prosper. And that makes people who sell out their country like members of our Senate and Congress on both sides of the aisle that makes them uncomfortable because if someone shows up like a president Trump or a strong willed leader that says America will always be first our families our industry. Our safety. It will always come first. Now, if you make good money, selling out America or selling out Israel or selling out whatever country you're strong willed leader is in charge. You're not going to want that person around. By the way, it is the 14th of June. I want to wish President Donald J. Trump Happy birthday and my brother. I mean, President Trump is not my brother. If he was my brother, my career would have probably taken a completely different path. But no President Trump is not my brother. Although people are claiming that President Trump is there endorser, we'll talk about that later in the show, But happy birthday to my brother in North Carolina have to use a code name for Security purposes.

"Wall street journal. Thank you very much for joining us. Pleasure what's supposed to kind of waiting to see how effective the vaccine is so. That's twenty three percent. Say that they wanna confirm that. It's safe so i said effective but it's really looking at the safety. jeffrey jones. senior editor at gallup. Thanks for joining us. Jeffrey pleasure we have about sixty four percent of the people in the country that are vaccinated twelve percent still planned to be vaccinated but we have about twenty four percent of people that say they do not plan on being vaccinated and a portion of those people are saying you know. There's no way to change my mind. I'm just not gonna do it. All these numbers combined together. We do kind of get into that territory. That's needed for her. To which is good so jeff. Tell us a little bit about what we're seeing. Yeah so i think definitely you're right you know. I think a lot of the estimates about hurting merely somewhere in the seventy percent range maybe give or take five percentage points. Certainly what biden is trying to hit seventy percents You know at least one shot by july four so we're pretty close to that already just in terms of people who have gotten the vaccine either fully vaccinated her personally. So then we're looking at that next group which is a twelve percent and You know you've seen the The rates vaccination go down kind of the pace of stowed quite a bit. You know it's the question of how quickly that group will get on board being vaccinated. And if they do then we're pretty much going to hit the seventy percent right there and we don't even really need to have to worry about that other group. That's kinda reluctant but you know the other group that reluctant we have half of them. Saying it's not likely at all that they would change their mind and get vaccinated on the other side. You have a combined twenty percent who say they're either very likely to change their mind or somewhat likely to change their minds so not a big slice of that group if you add it all together that is five percent of the us population so you know if if that group somehow all of them change their mind. We couldn't be getting close to eighty percent but that kind of looks like maybe the ceiling For vaccination let's talk a little bit more about those people that are saying that they're not going to get vaccinated. What are their top reasons for not wanting to do it right now so a lot of them and you know these could be mostly people who say. They're open to changing their mind. They're kind of waiting to see how effective the vaccine is. So that's twenty three percent. Say that They want to confirm that. It's safe though. I said affected. But it's really. They're looking at the safety. Twenty three percent want to make sure it's safe before they get the next group. They're kind of just not really scared by the virus twenty percents a they got cova. They don't think they would get sick. So they don't see much compelling reason to get the vaccine so those are the two most common reasons neither percentages that high among the choices that we give the other factors that people say are that they're concerned with how quickly the vaccine was developed. Maybe some concerns about safety there and then that's sixteen percent their sixteen percent just are not comfortable with vaccines in general over. That's for covert or you know smallpox whatever you know they just don't trust vaccine so and there's another play and there's a number of people also have already had cove nineteen they're saying. Hey you know. I don't really need the vaccine. I have that natural immunity. I know you're surveys only cover so much. Obviously but i'm i'm willing to bet there's a lot of people in the country that fall in that same group to yeah ten percent of the people who don't plan to get vaccinated so they've already had it so if you kind of knitted that out there to be two percent of all. Us adults some portion to who have had covert and gone the vaccinated so they wouldn't be in that group and you know. I guess they're still trying to figure out the science on that you know how long that immunity will last if you have cove it so once that kind of sorted out that might get some people to getting the vaccine obviously throughout the pandemic a big concern was getting sick. Nobody wanted to catch the virus. But right now fifty. Three percents of adults saying that their biggest worry is other people that are choosing not to get vaccinated. Yeah we've asked people for their concerns about the pandemic and the related issue right now. That's the top concern That people have In the past people were worried about you. Know hospital capacity and lack of social distancing certainly availabil- availability of tests. That was a big issue last year. That's really kind of come down. All of them have come down. But now it's really being worried that you know people around you are going to get vaccinated because that seems to be.

"Use their BBC World Service. Let's go to Israel, now with the new government has approved a controversial march by far right nationalists and settlers through occupied East Jerusalem later today, a move that has well inflamed tensions already with Palestinians. Several groups are expected to participate in the so called march of the flags through the old Cities Damascus Gate. And into its Muslim quarter and already the Palestinian prime minister has warned of dangerous repercussions. Rallies by far right Israeli groups in May started a series of events Excuse me, which, of course, led to that 11 Day conflict in Gaza, which tragically Saw 260. Palestinians lose their lives and 13 Israelis as well. Let's speak now to Middle East security analyst and correspondent with the Jerusalem Post. Seth Fransman. Welcome to these day, Seth, you know, just a day after we have this new prime minister, Nationalist Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, saying he is Going to unite the nation. We have the approval of this march, which is highly inflammatory. But would he have had much choice in the matter than to allow it to go ahead? No. I mean, I think this march was the brainchild of the last administration, and I think that in fact, the march already took place about a month ago, and it was cancelled or kind of at the last minute when Hamas fired rockets. Jerusalem I may 10th And so the marchers claim that because it was part of it was cancelled, even though they did most of it that they need to do it again. So then, last week when the when the government was in the midst of kind of falling in the new government being reconstituted, I think that the march was kind of brought up again as a way to kind of throw a kind of, you know wrench into the Spanish, so it was then approved at the last minute by the police. The police said. What we can reroute it and we have enough forces that we can keep. You know the Palestinians and the Israelis that are attending the march separated, so that's what they're going to try to do. They'll try to corral The marchers, so they go down to Damascus Gate, which is obviously what it's a lot of tensions because Damascus Gate is really you know where you have East tourism and right across the road, you have West Jerusalem, so it's a It's a kind of dividing line. It also tends to be an area of Clashes and they'll try to have the marchers go from there and then wind their way around to the Jewish quarter and go to the co tell where the marks usually ends in the ends anyway, usually sleeps, so it'll be a day of tensions. And I think we'll see if it's exploited. You know, on both sides are especially by the Palestinians, because Hamas, you know, may try to fire rocket or something, and that will be of course, the test then. For the new government, which is unfortunate for them because it is a government, you know the most diverse in Israel's history and has people from the right and left an Arab and Jewish parties. So Oh, yeah, exactly, but but but but nationalists in charge of the moment and as you say, new prime minister of Tally Bennett. I mean he is a nationalist, but we were hearing a commentator earlier on the program. To say, actually the people behind this march or even more extreme to the right than he is. Maybe even Jewish supremacist far right Fascist. What does the makeup of this group? Well, I don't know. That's a fair characterization of the march happens every essentially as every year on the Jerusalem Day, which is a celebration of the 1967 war, which Israel season course deliberation of of the Jewish sites that are inside the old cities. So the march has become more right wing over the years. It wasn't always like that, and I think that you know nevertheless, people that attended say, Well, wait, You know, there's just some extremists. And lots of us, you know, or just, you know, pro Israel. Whatever. So I think the march itself has lots of different types of people. But the specifically I think this year because it already happened.

I've been looking at what was at the time the biggest ever recorded strike action. On happened in India in 1974, and it was the railways that went on strike and as you can imagine, it brought the country to a halt on. It's also regarded as one of the things which prompted the then prime Minister Indira Gandhi toe usher in the infamous state of national emergency the following year, which was a suspension of civil rights. And Mike. Well, Max. Today we're taking to the skies and I've got the fascinating story from Egypt in the 19 thirties. So quite a long way back on the first woman in the Arab world to become a pilot. The first up is Alex last and you're taking his back Alex to West Africa in the 19 seventies. Yeah, That's right, Max. It's a story of being wanting to tell for quite a long time because I think it's an overlooked bit of African history, and that's the story of the fight against Portuguese colonial rule in Africa. Places now Guinea Bissau and Cape Verde, and this will really only came to an end in the mid 19 seventies. But it's also a story about the leader off that struggle. On May, a man named Amilcar Cabral, who became a legend of the wider struggle against Portuguese rule across Africa and corporal with a sort of Almost a shake of are a type figure man about whom many songs were written.

Could This Be the End of Benjamin Netanyahu's Political Career?
"Of Benjamin Netanyahu beyond wise to strike him off, But it looks like a key Israeli opposition party has backed Unity government, excluding Mr Netanyahu, Man in question is the ultra nationalist leader Naftali Bennett, who announced that his party would join talks to form a governing coalition with the centrist Party leader Yah Lapid. Mr Netanyahu's reacted saying the proposed deal would weaken Israel. Oh, in ultimate is senior correspondent at the 24 news child in Tel Aviv and joins us now. Oh, and thanks for coming on I mean, most people if they know about Bennett, they'll know that he has more in common with Netanyahu, uh, with the anyone else s. So why is this happening now? And will it work? Do you think It's happening now. Because over the course of two years, Benjamin Netanyahu has lost more and more pieces of the Israeli right. And there are hundreds of thousands of Israelis who have gone to the polls again, most recently in our last elections and have said they are right wing, but they would rather have a government that is dominated by the center left then have Benjamin. It's now return to power. A number of political parties went to voters and said, You have two options. Option A Netanyahu staying in power Option B, a center left government even though you voter are right wing voter and hundreds of thousands of Israeli right wing voters opted for option B on so that basically led those parties to become a balance of power and then cooked up with the center left. And put themselves in a position on the cusp of ousting Israel's longest serving prime minister. Right. So you suggest that this has been going on for a while, anyway, a sort of Ah, drift or removed. But hasn't he been able to present himself as Mr Security? That's who he's always presented himself as we've heard his comments, saying, Who's going to look after the settlers? That kind of thing? Doesn't that count anymore? Accounts among the large spar thought that Israeli voters and again don't forget this coalition if it's formed, has a very narrow majority. And Netanyahu still in every single poll has a plurality of the votes when the public's asked who they want to be prime minister, But it's not enough. It's not enough for him to get a majority in the

"Unification of many parties to, to be one central front that has a not unlike America. Right, where there's two major parties. And then you have caucuses you have different flavors within each party. I think that would be a healthier structure for Israel rather than all the little party us, correct. Not that it doesn't work. But I think it's a something we should strive for. So we're sitting here in Washington, obviously. And I think actually, the prime minister is giving his speech at to pack. Right as we're having this conversation. Why is Israel, one of the only countries in the whole world, where views of President Trump or more favorable than views of Brock Obama? And what do you think the long-term implications are for two countries that have been very close? But where there's now a partisan flavor to that alliance. That's very salient point Israel should not be a partisan issue should be bipartisan. And I want to explain this, why and then and then sort of Plantier question the fact that we're there, the fact that we're a free open very debating society. You know, it's jus for heaven's sake. So this will argue all day it's a, it's a beautiful democracy in the heart of the toughest place on earth in, we've got Syria, and, and ISIS, and his Bella on our on our borders. That, that is a huge national interest for the United States of America. Because if you will were sort of this huge, huge. Aircraft-carrier but you don't need to send a ship. You don't need to send troops. You don't need to send a quick -ment. We're there. We do. We have been sending. Acquit. -ment. Money. Yeah. But it's way cheaper than if you'd have to cheaper in lives and cheaper in cost. And we're doing good for the world in so many aspects. Now, your question was about the Israeli public sentiment prison Trump because Israel, as I mentioned, twice ready is, is a country that how is an existential threat to pretty much always because of the situation we have to look at our security is paramount, and that that's our pop interest, and it Trump's the pardon the pun, but it Trump's other elements and when, when, when someone is so supportive, Israel, we are thankful. And that's very natural. Now, you don't worry about Trump no longer being a an honest broker. A main there is there's a risk. Isn't there in aligning his interest so closely with the? Policy viewpoints of the Israeli government. I think Trump is aligning the interest of interest of the United States of America. What he's doing his strengthening America. But I do think that there is one problem, and that is that within the United States were Israel is positioned more and more as a partisan as Republican, you know, 'cause and that's not what we are. In fact, historically, you know big shift. It is a big shift in. It's not a good shift and it's not one that day we want. Have you met President Trump yourself? I have. Well, it was very short when he came to Israel, I shook his hand and said, Mr President, that wasn't in the cards, you have you can go down in history as the guy, the first guy who recognize Jerusalem as the Jewish capital, fellas. And he said, oh, that's an idea. This is I on his visit back then I, I don't know. Well, I speak to some of his folks on an ongoing basis, they're very knowledgeable about Israel. Have you talked with Jared Kushner, I, I don't want wanna go into the names. I've spoken to many of the people, very knowledgeable of Israel very positive about Israel, which I think is okay from an American stamp on. It's okay to be very friendly with an ally, who has been so always favorable in, and so close to America for so many years. I mean. So, so I think that makes sense. Would you compare them to king Cyrus? I think what the prime minister meant in the comparison is in effect that his declaration had on the Jewish people, and in history, there's a few famous declarations and did king Cyrus declared that the Jews can come back and then the living and the state of Israel. This was well over two thousand years ago, about say two thousand five hundred years Bill ball for about one hundred years ago declared Israel as the Jewish home. This is our major decleration that will go down in history in that sense. I think I think it is a major decleration. So if we sit down a year from now and we revisit this, this podcast when you come back for next year's APEC couple of questions. Do you think that Benjamin Netanyahu will still be prime minister of Israel? I hope so. And this is a strange thing, because we're political rivals. I don't know if your listeners understand in Israel I compete with Nathaniel during the elections. It's a zero sum game. You've haute for him or for me yet, I think for the good of Israel, I would not wanna see Netanyahu step down because of, you know, for criminal investigation reasons, I want free elections, and other hand, I have to say he is has been prime minister for very long for very long time. And, and you know that, that is pretty unique on the global stage. So you say you'd like to be prime minister someday. What do you think Israel, most needs in leader right now? Well, I think to elements is really Israelis want someone who can run the country. Well, I also think that it's time for someone who can pose a a an example on on values in the way we conduct ourselves. And that was what I was alluding to when I said. That on a moral basis, you know, people ought not to they gifts, so, but I'm ultimately, that's the decision of the voters. So I would want to be a leader by example, and also to run the country. Well, it's two different things. I'm not sure though. I mean, the on the example part, I'm not sure that is a major element in the political world anywhere right now. There's no good examples, nor I it's, it's some after I said that I started thinking about it a bit more. And I'm not sure that's something that voters care about that much as much as they used to, you know, we had to Menachem in and a bit Mongolian who went down to the desert to, to live in the desert as an example. So young people will will follow him. I'm not sure that's a big issue that I'm not sure that young people of view their leaders, as a potential example anymore. I don't know. This is a it's a big question. Well, I don't know as the education minister, you're depressing me again. So we'll have to revisit that question. I don't want to the press you because I do want to say one thing, specifically about Israel because I don't know what goes on in the states, the twelve twelfth graders at least in Israel. We're experienced the highest numbers of volunteering for, you know, in Israel. Everyone has to go to the army, so many many Israelis are deferring by one year. Their army service, there are compulsory army service in order to volunteer another year in agriculture in helping people in the low socioeconomic areas amazing. So I'm very optimistic about our future. But this is a specific angle that needs to be explored Neftali Bennett. He's our guest this week on the global politico, thank you for visiting us in Washington. We'll look forward to come visiting you during Israel's election campaign whenever that may be thank you very much. This was wearing thank..
