Doubling Down: Trump Tweets, Puerto Rico, and Prime Day Protests

"It's Monday July fifteenth. Welcome to skim this where breaking down the most complex stories of the day and giving you the context on why they matter today we're diving into the fallout from president trump's controversial tweets from over the weekend. We'll connect the dots on the freshman congresswoman who were apparently targeted and why trump is demanding an apology from them. Then Puerto Rico's governor is in the middle of his own tech scandal while the island is trying to settle a bankruptcy deal and finally it's Amazon Prime Day but a lot of Amazon warehouse workers are looking for a different kind of deal. We're here to make your evening smarter. Lead Skim this. The most complicated story today is about tweets tweets that president trump send over the weekend that have set off a firestorm. President Trump called out quote progressive Democrat Congresswoman who tell the U._S. quote how our government is to be run. He said that they originally came from other countries and should quote go back and he suggested that speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi would be happy to see them go because of the context analysts say this appears to be targeting four congresswomen who have been very outspoken about immigration and president trump to be clear are all four of those members are American citizens and three were born in the United States. We're going to get into who it's widely believed. These women are why they've been making headlines and how people are reacting to the president's tweets today in the house. There are four Freshman Progressive Democrats known as the squad Alexandra Causing Cortez of New York Ianna Presley of Massachusetts receded to leave Michigan and Illinois Omar of Minnesota. All all four were newly elected last November. They're all women of color and to our Muslim. These four have been tight since the start and they poked at both the president and speaker of the House Pelosi Okaz Cortez is one of the most highly profiled. Filed Democratic Socialists in the U._S.. She put forth the green new deal to combat climate change before Presley into leap took office both had impeaching trump on their to do list which Pelosi said she doesn't want yet and Omar was criticized by both Republicans and Democrats for comments she made about groups that lobby for Israel on the hill some called her comments antisemitic including Pelosi Omar apologized and that's the very skimmed background of the situation but it appears that with his tweets president trump was inserting himself into a more recent fight between Speaker Pelosi and the squad. It's all about immigration gratien policy. It helped get a four point. Six Billion Dollar Bill passed to address conditions for migrants at the border. The four congresswoman teamed up to oppose it. They said the bill was too lenient on the trump administration. They said the administration would news the money to continue crackdowns. Pelosi got that border bill passed anyway when she was asked about it by columnist Maureen Dowd Pelosi Dis the squad. She said they didn't have enough of a following to get the votes in Congress just on twitter and then Pelosi asked Dem's in closed-door meeting not to tweet criticisms there was drama Okaz. Your Cortez called Pelosi's comments quote outright disrespectful and accused Pelosi of singling out newly elected women of color and that's another reason people think president trump was tweeting about the squad on Sunday because he also mentioned Pelosi saying she'd be happy if they left again all four four of these U._S.. Members of Congress are U._S.. Citizens Ion Parsley was born in Cincinnati Rashida to lead in Detroit O Cossio Cortez is from the Bronx born just a dozen miles from where president trump was born. Only Illinois Omar was born outside of the U._S.. Her family fled to the U._S. as refugees from Somalia. She's been a U._S.. Citizen since she was a teenager remember civics class. You have to be born in the United States. If you want to be president but to be in the house you just have to have been naturalized citizen for at least. Seven years for the Senate it's nine years a pew study found that thirteen percent of lawmakers in Congress are either immigrants or the children of Immigrants Most Democrats but there are some Republicans to so. There's been a lot of reaction to these tweets but mostly just from one side. A Bunch of Democrats have come out against president trump including speaker Pelosi. She said this was about race. She tweeted that quote when at Real Donald Trump tells four American congresswoman to go back to their countries he reaffirms his plan to make America great again has always been about making America white again in the meantime among elected Republicans. It's been mostly crickets former Ohio governor John Casick and former the Arizona Senator Jeff Flake called for other members of the Republican Party to condemn trump's tweets this afternoon Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina the only black Republican in the Senate called the tweets racially offensive and a handful of Republican in Congressman like will hurt of Texas. Mike Turner Ohio also said the tweets were racist yesterday on CBS's face the nation the acting head of customs and Border Protection was asked about it. WHO's the president talking about and how is this helpful? If you're trying to get Democrats Democrats in Congress to work with you again you got to ask the president what he means by those specific tweet. You don't know who he's talking about. I think that you need to talk to the president about his specific tweets. That trump has got backing from other Republicans on Fox News today. Senator Senator Lindsey Graham said that the congresswoman were citizens but then he denounced them as communist in anti-american for a bunch of things including how they criticized customs and Border Protection today President Trump said the squad member should be apologizing not him to the U._S. and Israel an apparent reference to Illinois Omar and today at a White House event for American manufacturers. He was asked about the tweets and double down there if you're not. Happy here then you can leave as far as I'm concerned if you hate our country if you're not happy here you can leave. So what's the skin. This isn't the first time president trump's been accused of racism back in two thousand twelve. He loved the birther movement to try to convince the country that President Obama wasn't really born in Hawaii and therefore wasn't a U._S.. Citizen a lot of people said that was really about race and trump's first speech each as a presidential candidate he called Mexican immigrants rapists and since then as president he said or tweeted a lot of stuff like that president trump says these latest tweets are not racist but Pelosi says she's drafting a resolution condemning them as racist so now House Republicans who haven't spoken up yet could have a chance to say for the record whether they agree you. You've probably been seeing in Puerto Rico in your feet. A lot is not just your friends vacation picks. The island is going through some stuff right now so let's break it down. I Governor Ricardo Rossello group chat since last week. Eight hundred eighty nine nine pages of buzz worthy chats between Rozelle and eleven other people including top officials inside and out of the administration were leaked the League show how officials are discussing confidential government issues with each other and people who don't work for the government the officials also made a bunch of sexist vulgar and derogatory comments about journalists and politicians including a death threat against the mayor of San Juan they brainstorm setting up a troll network to go after their critics. There's already been fallout from the scandal handle. The island's chief financial officer and secretary of state resigned over the weekend because of their involvement but governor Rozelle says he won't step down instead. He visited a church Sunday. Morning and asked for forgiveness Russell the the F._B._i.. Hasn't confirmed whether they've launched an investigation into the group chat but they are working on another investigation corruption last week. Two former top Puerto Rican officials were among a group of people arrested and indicted on fraud charges investigators are looking into the misappropriation of more than fifteen million dollars worth of federal funding and their finances are are a big deal for the last three years. Puerto Rico has been working with federal overseers to try and figure out how to handle their one hundred and twenty four billion dollars of debt. They're negotiating with creditors and trying to balance their checkbook without hurting lower class workers and retirees this weekend. They finally said they're ready with a plan. Just making final tweaks includes a promised to continue paying out most worker pensions but would cut payments to people who have loaned money to the government. The plan is also working on getting nine billion dollars of debt declared unconstitutional basically saying taxpayers shouldn't have to pay it back. The whole thing is expected to be presented to a federal judge in the capital San Juan within the next few weeks but the plan isn't going go down easy hedge funds and insurance companies that have helped Puerto Rico out want their money back. They say the plan is against the law and they're already saying they'll challenge it in court so tough week for Puerto Rico and it's only Monday today is the beginning of Prime Day Amazon's Day. Hey of big deals for its prime members. You get an Alexa and you get an Alexa and you get an Alexa but not everyone's happy about the shopping sprees specials warehouse workers at Amazon fulfillment centers in Minnesota and. Germany are walking out protesting their pay and working conditions. They say they're expected to work long backbreaking hours and can be fired even for taking too many bathroom breaks and their pay is so low that a lot of workers say they rely on federal aid like food stamps Amazon says they're paid more than minimum wage so far Amazon says the strikes won't slow down their operations. There are over six hundred thousand Amazon employees around the world and only a couple thousand are striking today analysts expect Amazon to make five point eight billion dollars in worldwide sales over the course of the two day event but they're not the only ones other big companies like Walmart and target or hopping on the bandwagon and offering sales today too and before we go today.

Today's news from Natural News Dot com that's natural news dot com the article reads. July thirtieth twenty twenty. Bill, Gates Hymns and Hawes about corona virus vaccines causing universal side effects and test patients. Well before we get into the article I'll. Try. To be is professional as possible here I don't care for. Bill. Gates I've had a computer for a long time. even way back in the day over fifty years old. So you guys can do the math there. I've had computers and laptops and mostly desktops my entire life or at least half of my life I should say Bill Gates can't even design windows and here I'm running windows ten on my laptop. Bill. Gates can't even design a decent version of windows. Now, Bill Gates him in hotline making sounds and noises like the typical asked that he is and he's pretending to be some type of expert and he's not even an expert. He's not a medical doctor he's not an expert. He is nothing. Here's A Computer Geek folks. He's a fucking computer geek. Okay. Excuse my language. He's a computer geek. He doesn't know shit about vaccines. He doesn't know shit about immunology. He doesn't know anything about the body and here this this this asshole wants to try to sit there and laugh for the people that they're using their test their test subjects are live clinical trials but using them live on test patients already for going the animal testing, they didn't even bother test animals they went straight to humans. He wants to get this son of a bitch. This is needle and jab you as soon as he can this vaccine, get it in your body for pretend virus that's only killed about one hundred and fifty thousand worldwide. Of course, the China Chinese numbers are greatly skewed over there but the flu kills more people in this country nationwide year-by-year than this pretend corona virus has. So. Let's get right into the article here folks. when pressed this is Bill Gates. Recent CBS interview with Norah O'Donnell Norah O'Donnell is the anchor on CBS six o'clock news anchor normally when pressed during a recent CBS interview with neuro donal. About the fact that nearly every test patients given the experimental Wuhan Corona, virus, or Cova Nineteen vaccine thus far has developed symptomatic side effects the billionaire Eugenicist Bill Gates nervously unconcerned reassuring viewers that the FDA will do a good job at all of that. Okay. So that's his rebuttal when nor brings up a very valid for once a very valid issue. He discovers it off like says, you know I did see the Interview I did see the video in the interview he just treats it like it's no big deal. That's the FDA's department. Let them take care of it? You know he's he's a again. He is a a real piece of work here folks the article goes on to say is Norah O'Donnell explained a whopping eighty percent I repeat eighty percent of those given at least two doses of Madeira's Madeira is the company now test. Making the vaccine and run in the testing Maderas test vaccine for the Wuhan Corona Virus or Kobe nineteen eighty percent got sick and many cases with the same symptoms. One night develop from the infection itself but according to gaze, it's nothing to worry about because the side effects really weren't that bad. Again, he's not as sympathetic. He's just a buck and computer geek a failed computer geek that still can't even do a decent version of windows a failed computer gig. Now, trying to tell you what you can and what you can't put in your body, and if you don't take the shot, we're gonNA forcibly give you this shot. This is what this asshole isn't. It makes you sick and you die Oh, it's no big deal, the FDA that shootout. Doesn't care doesn't have a care in the world. He's got his billions and billions and billions of dollars. He doesn't give a rat's ass about you or me. So. As Article Goes on here folks the FDA. Not being pressured and then he gulps take a hard look at Squirmy Bill Gates screaming in the interview obviously uncomfortable respond a tool Donald's question whether or not the vaccine is safe. The FDA is a good is a gold standard regulators and the current guidance on this if they stick with, that is very, very appropriate. And you know the. Side. Effects were not super severe. That is it didn't cause permanent health problems. and then he stutters every time I go on. This is him stuttering and he stutters the things they're you know, Madeira. Didn't have to go through with the fairly high doses you know to get the antibodies. So again, this this this. Mr Gates Bill. Gates can't seem to form a decent statement Nuoro. Donald has spot on and she's got this jackass would only pray that Neuro Don O. Donnell and a lot of the viewers would see this video see the interview she did with Bill Gates and I mean she just she and I? I don't think she was trying to she's very professional for the most part I've seen neuro donal a multiple multiple times not that I'm a big fan of the left but but she's she's decent she is decent she she nailed him on a few good questions and he just can't respond. He's Woah he's stuttering. He's looking like the fucking clown that he is some. Of the other vaccines are going to be able to go at lower doses to get and then there he goes again, responses that are pretty high including the J. and J. and Pfizer, and so there is a lot of characteristics, these vaccines and he says it's great that we have multiple of them that are going on there. He added being cut off by Norah Norah O'Donnell who is not going to let him get off the hook about the fact that every test paste patient who had a high dose of Madurai Vaccine developed a side effect and that's one thing you got to think about folks. When you throw this shit in your body. Is I've said on many many many many podcast. Well over between my platforms, well, over one hundred and something almost one, hundred, twenty, five to fifty here somewhere somewhere in between there I've talked about this on various podcast and on different channels. That you throw shit in your body, it hasn't been tested hasn't been proven. You're going to get sick. Okay. That's the fact of life you're going to get sick. And a story you know it's it's just. The sheep mentality, the herd mentality I know for a doctor Fosse's talked about that Dr. Bouchier rather excuse me. Is just incredible here. People. Just. Listen to a star. They listen to some asshole like Bill Gates and three quarters of the people who are over three quarters of the assume that that he's an expert again, no critical thinking is found very few people out there at least online have critical thinking much less anybody I ever meet or a have met in the past twenty five years. There's just not a lot of critical thinking people that they're not asking the even simple hard questions of what will this do to my body and if it does do something to my body, what the hell are the side effects and will I be able to recover? And and first and foremost what the Hell is the point of taking this damn vaccine. If I don't know what the Hell is going to do, and there you go and they, they can't even answer those basic questions clown here calls himself Bill Gates is just a total retard. After reiterating to this gates once against responded saying. Yeah. But some of that is not dramatic where you know it's just you know super painful. But yes, there's we need to make sure there's not severe side effect and try not to laugh at the end of his bizarre statement you know this this this Bill Gates if you watch them in. Any interview, he's just fucking bizarre. He's so evil. It's not even funny folks and I just I pray to God Almighty that that some of you can wake up if I can just wake up one or two or three you people out there than than I'm doing a good job. You know I'm trying to wake people up trying to make you realize. This stuff and the shit and the stuff that's going on in the world right now. Is Insanity this vaccine is to de populate. Human. Race and people don't understand that once they put the vaccine laced with Nanno NASA Ano particles inside of you they can turn on a device and the nanoparticles in and everybody thinks I'm full of shit and that's fine. I don't care. Just go google this or go duck duck go this use a different search engine Google Google's pushing all the. WOULD BE SEARCH engine results they're pushing them to the bottom if not they're deleting them so you have to do a little bit of digging go onto duck duck go they're still not too bad that's the one I use personally going to duck duck go and type in Bill Gates type in. Agenda Twenty one and you'll see that these. When they inject you at the vaccine. They put the Nano particles in side of you. That's what they're doing putting the Nano particles inside you. Then they'll be able to turn on a machine in and a couple of seconds little small machine, and they can activate the particles in your body, and my first question is why the fuck would you want to have? Active particles that somebody else can control inside your body. Are you out of your fucking mind? That's the first thing I would say to somebody you totally stoned and out of your fucking mind wake up you know I I I just it kills me it really kills me how stupid. People are today in today's society and I love all of you people as Human Beings and I love you as a Christian and and as a human being and I pray to God Almighty through Jesus. Christ that you guys can come around and get the know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Personal Savior. But it's like there's just there's just a a sheep mentality. A herd mentality is if you see your your your neighbor, your brother or your sister. do it your mom, your dad, your you guys automatically do it. You don't understand what's going on in the world. You're totally totally disconnected from society. You might be connected to your job. You might be somewhat connected to your family, but you're disconnected to really what the fuck is going on in society you need the wake the fuck up. That's all I got to say you need to wake the fuck up skews my language God for saying that for cursing. But it's like I get. I get tired of this. I go on podcast after podcast and and it's just like there's just folks and people that are just out of contact with reality. What's going on? I'll tell you what's going on. Satanism is going on these people like gates and these movie stars and these actors and actresses and the people. That are going on the the athletes in everybody up there. Running their big mouths are saying how cool it is to do this? How cool it is to do that Well. If you end up dead because you take a shot and unproven shot, it hasn't even had animal testing clinical trials with animals. Yes. I. Know They. They test on animals I know that but if you're going to go. And you're going to take something. That's going to end up causing you to be very sick. And maybe even kill you or maybe even a loved one that gets the shot. Then, you have nobody to blame but yourself I'm sorry to say. Don't say it in or new. I just I'm speechless at the sheep mentality and herd mentality everybody is just bad bad bad. Just on and on and on the there's nothing nothing nothing. Nobody is doing shit. Where is everybody? Where are the Patriots? I see a lot of patriots on you to a lot of them are fake. Day by day, it's not a day. Go by I. Don't see somebody on there claiming to be this claim to be that claiming to be a Christian claiming to do everything. But then you get to dig in and then just doing a little bit of common sense and little bit of homework and you find out there just nothing but a fake. I pray for you my brothers and sisters out there listen to this and I pray in the name of Jesus that I can wake somebody up out there. And just do your homework like I said go to duck duck go. Go to duck duck go and just put in Bill Gates Agenda Twenty one. the vaccines. What's it all about I? Mean there's there's the put in. There's thousands of thousands of subjects on that and duck go for the most part will bring up the search results for you unlike Google? Okay, if you like this podcast, this is Eric Herb live.

Roaring Crowds Are Gone, But NBCs Lester Holt Says There's Still Convention to Cover

"Balloon drops, out roaring crowds gone but says NBC's Lester. Holt. They're still convention to cover. By Philip Elliott this article is part of the DC brief times, politics newsletter. We're only a few hours away from the first virtual political convention being gaveled into session and it's already clear. Things are going to be very, very different for one the journalists who normally crowd the convention hall for the Big Moments are going to be dialed in from their kitchen counters and living room couch is like other Americans still stuck at home in the middle of the pandemic. There won't be rogue delegates to interview or random chance from the floor to 'cause embarrassing off brand moments there may still be surprises, but they're likely to be the kind that have been scripted and executed by the convention's producers. For, veterans of past conventions, the all remote setup is just the latest hiccup in this year's election season as the world grapples with Corona virus both parties have almost entirely switched to streaming schedules and cut way back on the hours of floor programming the Democrats Convention starts tonight followed by Republicans show this time next week news organizations will still treat the evenings as the political ground zero that they are, but there's just a lot less sizzle in the offing as the very campaign trail has turned into a very long facetime. There may be some upside to cutting back on the hours and hours of speeches, a quicker and less inefficient night of political preening. Ahead of the Convention Start I caught up with NBC News Lester Holt the first man to be a US network newscasts solo anchor. He'll be leading the network's coverage of the conventions during the ten pm hour with ratings up for flagship newscast across the networks we've talked about how he's been framing the colliding stories of a pandemic racial justice and a presidential campaign that politicises everything including masks for the next two weeks. Holt will be reporting from NBC's midtown Manhattan Studios a spot. He's only seen a handful of time since March. Our conversation has been edited for CONCISION and clarity. Time you're about to anchor a global event while not there. What's that like Holt? Well, it's particularly strange for me because one of the hallmarks at nightly news is that I like to take viewers to the story I WANNA talk to people I want to bring a personal connection to the story, and of course, we've lost that ability on a lot of things that we cover part of the conventions are the conversations in the hallway. It's the people you run into, you pick up little nuggets along the way. This is going to be very different watching in a studio people who may be giving speeches from their living rooms or their kitchens. This is kind of terrible on a personal level isn't it? Oh, sure it is. It's just one thing that we took for granted that's being taken away from us from a personal level. I had a lot of expectations. This summer I was going to be covering the Olympics I was going to be covering these two conventions traveling to wherever the debates are none of those things are happening, but the process of electing a president goes on like so many Americans and so many businesses we're figuring it out as we go along. This year has been a rough one for our business. You mentioned the Olympics, which is an NBC institution that's off the table. For the moment we've got no conventions no campaign road warriors. How do we as an industry make it through this while also continuing to do exceptional journalism The candidates simply aren't traveling I mean the president has been traveling some and within the White House bubble, we've had some access in Delaware to Joe Biden but you're right. We're not able to cover things the way we used to thank God for Zoom and some of the other technologies we've been able to employ but I'm not gonna lie it's hard to replace that one on one contact that ability to cultivate sources and just listen to people and voters and decision makers about what's happening. Your audience is used to a visual medium. We're going from balloon drops and pandemonium to what's basically zoom happy hour. How did you get your audience ready for that? The speeches will be the speeches but at least with the Democrats, you're not going to hear a crowd roaring its approval or reacting in any way I. Guess in this aspect, we're going to be really focused on the words themselves because the performance art that's part of conventions that part is going to be missing the imagery is so different. You mentioned a hall with balloons dropping. We're going to see somebody's toaster in the background. Might we actually beginning to a point where we're looking at the ideas instead of pageantry I think. So look at four years ago, lock her up became a mantra for some of candidate trump supporters at that time those moments we probably won't see, and so we're going to be forced to focus on the messages the timing the words as opposed to how the crowd reacts or those surprise moments in the crowd or the demonstrations I would argue that we're not going to have as many distractions that we might otherwise have. If, this whole thing is scripted from the start. Why bother with it? They bother because they know that they're going to get the television coverage the you and I are old enough to remember the days when it was wall to wall convention coverage on the networks that's not happening anymore but it still valuable real estate on network television. So I can't imagine either candidate even considering for a moment not doing a televised convention it still part of the process. Where will you be physically sitting during this? I'll be in studio one, a the today show studio with Savannah Guthrie. Of course, we'll be physically distanced Andrea, Mitchell Chuck Todd will be in a studio in Washington DC. So four of us will navigate through the evenings on the personal side being able to go to the studio and sit next to Savannah is a huge upgrade I've been sitting in a spare bedroom for the last several months doing nightly news by myself every night it's been a lonely existence I'm not complaining obviously, there are a lot of people going through tough times, but the ability to come back to thirty rock and sit in the studio is something that I'm personally excited about. have. You embraced with the rest of us have during this a suit tie and at leisure below the desk I'll be honest I'm usually wearing jeans but I gladly put on that jacket insured and tie. Now having said that I've gone out to do interviews for nightly news pieces and dateline. So I'm not inside all the time but in terms of anchoring, it's primarily been from home. We're in the middle of three major stories converging at once and the story on race has been one where you've been pretty frank. Do you have a platform that perhaps Norah O'Donnell and David? Muir don't. People look at me. They expect me to have an opinion order to be affected by these things that doesn't necessarily show a bias, but it is a recognition of who I am as a person people come to this broadcast presumably because they trust me and they respect me if I didn't say anything I think it would be disappointing now I choose my words carefully but I don't think it's a bias to want this country to live up to its ideals that it's a bias for this country to be fair that it's a bias for people to want their police to function in service of people. This might be the biggest story of our career. The whole mantra is journalism is a first draft of history. You have a say in what goes in the history book what makes the cut? I wrote the Intro to broadcast last night we just come off another weekend of huge crowds of people openly defying local and state regulations. This didn't air, but it was something to the effect that when the history is written of why this country failed in dealing with this pandemic volumes will be spent on our inability to do the simple things like wearing a mask and social distancing. That's a paraphrase but it's pretty close I think it's appropriate sometimes to call it like it is. This is an important time for journalism. This is an important story and when it landed at our doorstep I thought. All right. You, know we've taken three and a half years of a beating of people trying to discredit us. But this is a story that everyone has to pay attention to that people will recognize the importance of a free press that happened but then the politics creep back into it I guess I was a little naive i. didn't expect that I thought this could be seen for what it was a health threat that we all shared instead suddenly it became seen through the Lens of blue and red again that was crushingly disappointing. It worries me about our future that even something like this has been marred by politics. Can we purge the politics from it or is it too late I? Think it's too late most people get what it takes to fight this disease they understand masks and social distancing. This has become almost the new global warming the planet is getting warmer. That's not a political statement, but it is for some people. Covert is spreading because too many people are crowding together. That's not a political statement, but some people will see it as such. How dare you embrace science in fact? The thing is as journalists we obviously have to report the body of science on this, which is huge in the direction of social distancing and get that mask wearing. We don't want to be caught up in a political debate. I don't want people to think I'm being political. When I say we should all be wearing masks unfortunately that's what the environment has. kind of led us down the road to.

Ep 388 | The Border Crisis & Loving the Foreigner | Guest: Daniel Horowitz

"Hey guys welcome to relatable happy thursday. Hope everyone has had a wonderful week so today we are going to talk about what is going on at the border and what is going on in texas there have been illegal immigrants who have been transported to different parts of texas news reports. Say that there will also be illegal. Immigrants that are currently being detained at the border that are going to be transferred to different parts of the country. And so we're gonna talk about some of what's happening. I'm going to talk to you about the christian perspective. And then i'm going to talk. I'm gonna talk to an immigration expert. Who has been studying this subject for almost two decades. Now his name was daniel horowitz. He is an investigator. He is a journalist. And so we're going to talk to him. Also about the kind of the cozied regulation hypocrisy when it comes to the unmitigated infiltration and acceptance of illegal immigrants even while they're still americans who were being heavily regulated as far as their behavior goes in the hopes of Report or supposedly trying to clamp down on the virus. So we're gonna talk a little bit about the hypocrisy. What dangers we think that this pose as and then also we're we're going to talk about some legislative solutions and then what you can do to hold your state legislators accountable when it comes to this problem because it is a really big problem now. There are a few three stories off the top that i want to let you know that i'm thinking about that. I am going to talk about at some point but we just didn't have time to get to this week. The one story that. I know you guys are curious to hear my analysis on the story of the twenty something man who killed eight people in atlanta. Six of them were asians. Two of them were white. I think seven of them were women. One of them was a man because we are kind of at what seems like a a precipice or i should say pinnacle rather of anti asian crimes. That are at least being reported. This is turning into a conversation about white supremacy a conversation about systemic anti asian racism. And so i. I want to talk about that but i'm going to wait a few days. There's a lot of information that we need to hear. And i mean social media on this. It is so incredibly. Talk sic you guys. it's so toxic. And i just wanna i just wanna say it's very difficult for me because i want us and i wish we could stay in this place just saying look like lives were lost to these people were made in the image of god and there are no longer here they were. Senselessly murdered a now. Their families and their friends are mourning them and this is awful. This is terrible. What would possess a person to do this. Jesus tells us that all send sexual immorality. All kinds of debauchery murder included starts in the human heart. And so this was a talk of the heart and this is terrible. And what can we do. Especially as christians to cultivate is much. Love is possible and as much help as possible. So these things don't happen. I want us to stay there. And i want to stay there. The problem is these conversations so quickly turned from. Wow that was awful which everyone agrees with. And wow that was terrible and that person needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They need to spend their life in jail. Or they even They deserve the death penalty. Of course it depends on where you stand on that particular issue but everyone agrees this is horrible. Everyone agrees this is simple but so quickly before. The bodies are even cold turns into a conversation about what we want to be. What we want to say is the cause of this so immediately immediately it goes from. Wow this is really sad and awful which we all agree with to well. This is white people for you or this is the patriarchy or this white supremacy or this guy just happened to be a member at some point of a southern baptist church who happened to have ties to some conservative ministries who have argued logically and biblically against critical race theory. Well this is. This is what that means. This is what it means to be a part of a sbc. This is what it means when you have churches data pushing the kind of purity culture that we've seen in conservative evangelical circles. And so you have all of this confirmation bias. All of these preconceived notions that are being just put out there without any thought whatsoever to the logical coherence of their argument before we have even had a second to mourn what happened to mourn the loss of life of image bearers. And so i'll just like lay my cards out there. It is difficult for me. Because i if i correct the record on that stuff which i feel obligated in this role to do if i say. Whoa whoa whoa. These narratives are getting out of control in the same way that we've seen over the past year. Since may i feel like. I need to talk about the data. I need to talk about the numbers if we're going to say this is a problem of whiteness. Look at the recent crimes against asians in who is perpetrated them like we have to have a conversation about correlation and causation and logical fallacies. If i correct the record on it immediately. I'm going to be accused of not having an empathy and not having compassion and not caring and being racist and perpetuating racism or whatever it is and apparently only loving thing to do in these situations to just not say anything to just nod our head into go along with whatever accusations people wanna make about whole groups of people based on the actions of one person. And i'm just supposed to be okay with that. Apparently i'm not supposed to react to the record because that's unloving. That's empathetic and i can't go. I just. I just can't go with that okay. I just can't agree with that. I could not believe that allowing ally to be perpetuated or allowing assumptions about whole groups of people based on the actions of one person. That are not true assumptions and not true accusations. I can't believe that that's the loving. And that's the empathetic thing to do. Is this whole like gas lighting situation. Where something tragic happens and immediately the reaction from one side is to say. Well this is what you get with white people or this is what you get with mannered. This is what you get with christians or this kind of the all aji and then if push back against that. You're the one that's called divisive like you're the one that's called political what it's not me. Who made a political in the first place but it's a bullying tactic to say nope. This is the prevailing narrative. Visit what we're going to say the causes. This is who were going to say is to blame it if you push back on that. You're the one who is callous. No no no. I would love us to stay in a place of our shared humanity. But if you're going to lie if you're going to push theories that are not based in reality. Not based in fact than i do feel like i have an obligation to push back against that and i'm just gonna have to take whatever heat comes my way into. That's just my short. That's just my short take on the reaction to the tragedy that happened like i don't like talking about race. I don't like talking about all of this. I don't like pushing back on the narratives. I don't like doing that. I understand that. I'm a white girl that is immediately going to be discounted my opinion on this or my take on this or my analysis on this is just going to be deemed a product of white privilege. I understand that in yet. What am i supposed to do. Allow you to believe narratives that are not based in truth that the numbers tell us something different that the facts. Tell us something different. We're just supposed to believe in headlines and believe in the mainstream narrative on something and believe in someone's analysis of the causes something because it's politically correct or popular to do so. I can't. I can't be that week if i wanted to In so i will be pushing back against it and trying to articulate as much compassion as i possibly can because i have all the compassion in my heart for the people who were affected by this violence. I have all the compassion in my heart for their families they were. They were image bearers. They have value. I care about murder. I care about violence. I also care about the truth. And i will let you know it's hard. It is hard to balance both of those things knowing that if you try to tell the truth or push back in any way that you were going to be called a bigot. It's hard to balance it. I try my best to do it. It's never going to be perfect. I'm a fallible. Finite human. Being i ask for the holy spirit's helping all of this but i feel responsibility to you guys to push back on the ridiculous things that you see on social media from the progressive mainstream on a daily basis when it comes to these kinds of tragedies i do i feel responsible to you. I think you're worth telling the truth till i do. And that also goes by the way in the conversation that we are going to have today about illegal immigration like how do we balance compassion for people that we know were made in the image of god with the truth like with the rule of law with the importance of a nation sovereignty. Difficult to deal. I tried to do it. I fail at it all of the time but just know that. That is my. That's my effort. That i that i just don't believe that going along with the most politically correct or the most popular narrative or or headline about something is the most loving and god. Glorifying thing to do. I just don't so i'll get into the illegal immigration in just a second but i just wanted to say that those are my like short just extemporaneous thoughts about everything that's going on on social media right now when it comes to this horrific story of this man who murdered eight people in atlanta. He says he did it by the way because of a sex addiction which we also talked about. That's going to be lost in this conversation. Which should also be of course talked about but we will talk about on monday so all that is coming on monday. We're going to have a long episodes just like we did back in may or june and we're going to be as human centric and as truth centric as we possibly candidate episode. So just wait for monday. We'll break it all down. We'll see what the word of god has to say about all of it. Second thing. I wanted to address quickly. Is that james coats whom we have talked about. A lot on this podcast. He has been released from jail right now. I believe the charges have been dropped. The still have to go to trial so they're going to be things that are going to happen. But i. i really think that some of this a lot of this has to do with you guys like a lot of this has to do with people talking about it on social media and i'm not seeing this podcast or any one of you or anyone post that his wife. Aaron coates put out with the thing that pushed it all over. But i do think talking about unfair. Sentencing an unfair punishments and duplicitous standards by the government s. Talking about that. I do think that it makes a difference. I do think that government officials can fuel the heat of righteous indignation. And that's why. I say. I said this on social media the other day someone was saying. How do i push back on my kids. Inaccurate curriculum that they're teaching at school. I said find like minded people in. Raise a respectful ruckus about it. Like arm yourself with facts arm yourself with the truth not just feeling anecdotes. But if there is curriculum that you believe is wrong or harmful. You need to be able to articulate clearly. Why and then raise a respectful ruckus about it. And that's what. I think that we did with james coats. That's what a lot of people did. There was a respectful ruckus raised about the injustice of his of his sentencing being in jail even as confirmed convicted child sex predators. Were let go in the same sentence without any conditions. And so i do think that us. Raising and respectful ruckus about injustice makes a difference. I think it made a difference here. Of course all under the sovereignty and direction and purpose of god so thank the lord for that continue to pray for him continue to pray for his family in another thing that you guys have asked me about that. I was going to talk about yesterday. Didn't have time The bachelor so after the final rose. You guys want me to talk about everything that happened there and there's so much there for us to talk about that. I just haven't had time this week and we're not gonna have time to do it today if you're still interested in me talking about it next week then we will talk about it. Just kind of the lack of mercy the lack of understanding the of forgiveness when it comes to the issues that were talked about there. I think is definitely relevant. People always say why. Don't you even talked about the bachelor. Who cares well. Millions of people care and if millions of people care then that means that there is something to analyze their like. There's something to look out there. And i just happen to think that the word of god speaks to every situation that god has given us all. We need for life and godliness. The bible says and this is a part of life. I don't recommend watching the bachelor by the way. I think it's a lot of trash but people do. So if i can use that as an opportunity to share the gospel into point us towards god god's good and gracious and right justice then. I am going to do that so we'll talk about that next week. If that's something that you guys don't to talk about or let us talk about. Let us talk about illegal immigration. And everything's going onto the border truly is a crisis before we get into it. You gotta make you wait just one more second. I gotta tell you guys about a wonderful sponsor that i just really love. And that is annie's kit club you've talked or you've heard me talk about any kit club. Where the description boxes every. Week of like woodworking kits to your son or daughter and they have like amy's girls kits where they like beating painting a different things like that. That your kids can engage in on a monthly basis. They all the supplies that you need. But they also that for women so they give you a craft every month again all the instructions that you need to make boutique worthy decors. Painting needle craft beating candle and soap. Making i am terrible at this kind of stuff. But anne's clubs. Makes it really easy to do. It's like you don't have to be an artist. I'm like the least artistic person in the world. Just even have bad handwriting. I'm creative but i'm not artistic until this thing is right up my alley because they tell me exactly what i need to do. I'm like paint by numbers kinda girl and so they make it really simple and i'm also lazy when it comes to running errands in so in so i wouldn't want to go to the craft store and get all the stuff into this perfect. They really make it as easiest possible for you. They send you all the supplies. You do it. You've got your awesome little soap bird decor whatever it is and then you can get something new the next month so go to anne's kit club dot com slash alley. Say fifty percent on your first kit. No matter your crafting experience. You can make picture perfect projects that you will be proud to display. Save fifty percent on your first today. That's annie's kit clubs dot com slash alley. That's annie's kit clubs dot com slash alley all right. Let's talk about this. Just one more thing like if you're watching on youtube you might see in the side camera. I don't know if you can see them. Shoes are untied they are. I don't know if you guys can notice things like that but some of you notice like really small things. It's very difficult being pregnant as i am to tie my shoe so sometimes it just doesn't happen. I have to get out the door and not time my shoes. I don't know if any of you caught that my shoes on tight but it's okay. We're all friends we're family. I know that you guys hopefully are judging me for that all right. Let's get into this. Finally add the meat of our episode. So what is going on at the border. Is there really a crisis. We've been talking about the border crisis for a long time. President trump ran on that and two dozen fifteen sixteen. Is it really a crisis. The answer is one hundred percent yes. It's been a crisis for a long time. There's a surge in two thousand eighteen. Is i'll talk about with my guest and there is an unprecedented almost unprecedented surge. Happening right now. Daily wire or notes norah o'donnell reporting on cbs. That thirteen thousand miners are currently being held in custody. That is much higher than the forty two hundred that was reported at the start of the week and they are being held in custody for an average of one hundred twenty hours far longer than the seventy two hours allowed by law. they're also reports. That are saying that there are kids that are going without food at the border that they're held in these now they're calling them holding facilities but they're the exact same facilities that these kids were being detained in the trump administration except now there's so many more of them bear less. There's fewer resources for them and so they are not getting the help and the care that they need. And so what we're called cages under donald trump or now being called a holding facilities. But they're the same things but now the conditions are even worse and by the way those facilities that the mainstream media called cages under donald trump were built by the obama. D h s. Okay and so. This is the same problem that is happening. Under biden on an exacerbated caused by his policies which again my guests will explain very thoroughly in a way. These things are happening in a way that we're not happening under donald trump because of the incentives that have been pleased by the biden administration. You have seen. We'll we'll put the picture up on if you're watching on youtube. We have seen migrants coming to the border to cross over illegally wearing t shirts that say biden like biden lettuce in. I mean this is a direct is of his policies saying that he is going to allow people in. He's not going to send them back home. And there's basically going to be no more no more penalty for that. The article says this in the daily wire. Many of the children interviewed by lawyers. In recent days said they had not been allowed outdoors for days on end confined to an overcrowded ted. Look this is not border. Patrols problem like this is this is not the this. I shouldn't say that this another problem. This is not their fault. The border officials are doing everything they possibly can to help these people. The fact of the matter is is that we don't have the facilities to be able to properly care for all the people that are now crossing the border. They just weren't made for that. They weren't made for the number of people that are currently crossing. And so i believe these border officials are doing the absolute best jobs that they possibly can to be as compassionate as they can. Just take care of these people. The fact of the matter is the facilities. Just were not made for that former acting ice director tom home instead last month at the biden administration designed this border crisis. They're bringing millions of people into this country who will now be counted on the census because joe biden overturned that which leads to cease a house in electoral college in elections. This is power over public safety to quest for power over protecting american citizens. So if you're asking why the democrats in the biden administration do not care about what's happening at the border why they're allowing people in willy nilly in a way. That is completely unrestricted. While you're y they are reversing. Strict trump policies at the border is probably for some kind of power. It's not four compassionate. there's nothing. Let me just be clear. There's nothing compassionate about this situation. Not for the people who live in the united states. Not for the american citizens who live at the border not for the people on the other side of the border. Not for any of the migrants mean these are people who are being smuggled into the united states. These are people who are being in a lot of times. Smuggled by the cartel. We've already talked about the amount of the number of rapes and sexual assault. That happened at the border. How dangerous this is for unaccompanied minors when you provide these kinds of incentives and win disincentivize illegal crossings. You get higher deaths of migrants safe. This is not compassionate for anyone. Strict border policy is compassionate border policy the daily wire reports the says that. Us is on pace for the highest number of illegal border crossing in twenty years. The border situation is difficult The typical democrat talking point blames the ongoing child. Migra issue on the trump administration's immigration policies. That's what we've heard by. The press secretary say a which turned away. Vulnerable children forcing them to remain in mexico while their asylum claims were processed. But here's the reality. The number of children crossing by themselves row sixty percent from january to more than ninety four hundred in february the most recent statistics available. Say this is. This is abc. The overall increase is blamed on a number of factors including the economic upheaval caused by the pandemic in central america and to recent hurricanes in the region. Us officials have also conceded that smugglers have likely encouraged people to try to cross under the new administration. And like i said. I think that there is something political here. Like who passed out. Those t shirts to the migrants who made the t shirts and who pass out t shirts to the migrants and gave them to them like pr. Opportunity is this. that's evil that is evil that that's that's corrupt and it's exploiting these people who i do believe are trying to come here for a better life. I'm not blaming the people who are trying to come here. Because i believe that they are fleeing poverty. They're fleeing corrupt governments. Who keep on. I'm sorry for my french but screwing them over over and over again. Who care nothing for their safety. Who care nothing for their economic stability. And i don't blame them at all for for wanting to come here to start a new life. The question is does. The united states have an obligation to allow everyone in. Who who wants to come in. no. I don't think so. Of course that's non anti-immigrant stance. I do believe that we should have a number of immigrants that comes every year. I believe in compassion for true refugees for true asylum seekers but simply want to come here for a better life because america's better country than your country is not a right that's not a justification for allowing someone in illegally it also smacks legal citizens in the face who worked so hard to go through the legal process and do everything responsibly that they needed to do to become american citizens. If you do not have a border you don't have a nation you don't have a sovereign nation which means that you're laws don't matter which means there are no special privileges or rights that you have as a citizen was means that the government has no ability to be able to protect those rights and protect you and so whenever someone says that while we just need to let people in because that's a compassionate thing to do the question is do you think there should ever be a limit should there ever be qualifications to allow someone in like. Is there any kind of criminal background. That could exclude someone from admission into the country. Is there any possible reason that we should be able to exclude someone from coming in the country illegally without a legal process. And if the answer is no then you're not dealing with any sort of serious person this this ridiculous argument which has no basis in reality your logic that america is stolen land so we don't have the right to say who should come in our country and who shouldn't if america is stolen land that virtually every country on earth is stolen land. I mean the history of the world unfortunately is a brutal history of concrete and being conquered every people group every skin color every creed has oppressed. It has been an oppressor or has oppressed or been oppressed. Has enslaved or been slaved has been conquered or has been a conquered that is true of every civilization and then to say that today there is no justification to having sovereign borders and to be able to protect their rights in the safety of your citizens. it's ludicrous. it's not based again on any reality. This is about power for a lot of people. i think. A lot of people think that it's compassionate but again there's nothing that is going on at the border right now or with our immigration process. That is compassionate. So what this is led to is. Actually thousands of adolescence being separated from their families if they came with their families a lot of came unaccompanied and taking them to places like midland taxes. Taken him to places like dallas texas and the the local officials in the state officials apparently reportedly have had no say in this whatsoever like they haven't had to give permission they haven't told the public. Hey here's why. For example in dallas there are three thousand reportedly fifteen to seventeen year old males being played in this convention center. And here's what's going to happen to them like does the public have any right to be concerned and this is not to say that we think all of those people are bad or that we think all of those people are worse than americans. That's not the point but people do have a right to be concerned about things like ms thirteen. People do have a right to be concerned about like what is going to happen to their community and to say that they have a right to be concerned is the most privileged argument that you could possibly make because the people who are going to be most affected by this kind of thing if it does cause for example if it causes any kind of uptick in crime or something like that. I know that we already have plenty of crying to deal with among our own citizens but if it causes any sort of any sort of danger the people who pay the price for that or not. The rich people living in their gated communities. It's not the people in the suburbs is the people who are already impoverished and are already vulnerable. Those are the people that you are hurting by this kind of unmitigated releasing of illegal immigrants into the country again. There's nothing compassionate about this. The washington examiner families sending children alone across the border. In response to biden policies families are exploiting biden administration rules against immediately returning to unaccompanied children from countries other than mexico said the individual with knowledge of discussions at the department of homeland security. The policy has created a loophole for families who have been turned away after they illegally came over the border and were pushed back into mexico by border patrol. Immigration lawyers told nbc news at the strategy. Percents the best chance. The children will be able to stay in the united states after being released to a sponsor in the country even if it means the parent cannot go with them and so there is child separation happening and i was against him still against true separation of children from their true parents have acted. The matter is is that many times. Traffickers will pose as children's parents To try to get across the border themselves but obviously they're not really children's parents so in that case. I do want the child to be separated from the trafficker and to be made safe but if there is a mother and her child is with her. Even if they're coming over illegally. I do not believe and disincentivising the crossing of the border by separating that true family. I mean i just. It doesn't matter how against illegal immigration i am. I cannot stand with that kind of disincentivising tactic. That kinda punitive treatment. I just cannot agree with the separation of true families but that kind of thing in another way is still happening under the biden administration. So you just need to think about for a second. The kind of media hypocrisy that we saw. I mean i know people who voted for biden on the on the border crossing the border crisis like i know people who will perpetuated that in cages. Thing saying that this was just this was a trump administration thing that this is what it means to be a white supremacist president and he is the most cruel president. Republicans are so cruel when it comes to what's happening at the border. No republicans want secure borders. It's not an anti immigrant stance. It's not even an anti illegal immigrant. Stance it is an anti illegal immigration stance. It's not against who they are as people. It's not thinking that they're worst people than anyone else. It's not even saying that. There's a higher likelihood among them to be bad. People are to be criminals or anything like that. The question is is this good policy for the country like who does this actually help at the end of the day. I believe that it helps. No one and i believe that every single country whether it is kenya or the united states has a right to protect their borders. And not just a right but also a responsibility. I want to talk about this also from From a christian perspective because a lot of people use for example exit twenty two twenty one that says you shall not wrong sojourner or pressing for your soldiers in the land of egypt to say that that means that we should have open borders. We should just allow everyone in. Who wants to come in. And that's the that's the christian way that is poor understanding of what this means. And if you look at what it actually meant to be a sojourner in israel yes they were supposed to accept the foreigner but that foreigner was forced to acclimate to their rules into their laws to basically become one of them. There was a process. By which the sojourner became part of them in a way that is not force here in the united states. And so if you're going to use that as your example if you're going to use god's law for ancient israel as an ar ar example for immigration policy today than what. You're actually saying that you believe in the legal process by which immigrants should come in and be acclimated to american culture and become a part of american culture and actually follow american law. there's no justification whatsoever in the bible for breaking immigration law. There's just not in in factory didn't have romans thirteen. We'll tell us that we're actually supposed to respect. Governing authorities talked about that passage before what it means and what it doesn't mean and so we do believe that breaking the law in that way is a sin that doesn't mean that we don't have compassion for their station or we don't have compassionate for their circumstance we do believe in accepting true refugees through illegal process. We do believe in seeking and filing for asylum through a legal process. But we believe there's definitions of these things. We believe that there should be a legal process to citizenship. And again people who say that. There shouldn't be like who are you helping. Truly who are you helping. I don't. I don't think anyone and i certainly know that. That's not what accidents twenty two twenty one means saying that we are going to enforce. Our border loss is not oppressing shoulder jeremiah. Seven five through seven does tell us this. This is of course the prophet jeremiah. Tallying gods people for a few truly at mend your ways and your deeds if you truly execute justice one with another if you do not oppress this. Though jenner the father lists or the widow or shed innocent blood in this place. If you do not go after other gods to your own harm then. I will let you draw on this place in the land that i gave of all to your father's forever. So of course we know that america isn't like ancient israel. Is it a metaphor for america. America isn't modern day israel. And that's certainly not what i'm saying and i don't think that's what anyone who uses this is saying but also to use this in the sense that this means we are supposed to have open borders. It's just a poor interpretation of the and historical context of again what it actually meant to be sojourner. we can absolutely have compassion by the way. America accepts more immigrants every year than any other country by far so to say that america is a country. That oppresses the immigrants. There is no other country has shown more compassionate has given more resources to both immigrants legal immigrants in the world. There's no other country that has done it but again i believe that they're responsible. Compassionate thing to do is to guard your borders strictly as possible to make the legal process for citizenship as efficient as possible and to disincentivize inhumane ways this dangerous and exploitative crossing of the that is rife with trafficking and corruption and drug trafficking and rape and assault in all kinds of danger. That again is not good for anyone. I don't think that is how we love the sojourner and love the foreigner by any means now wayne gruden feeling. And i've had him on my podcast. Who has talked about this before he has talked about. It's kind of the objection to any kind of border policy or even a border wall that says the bible tells us to care for the sojourner. Here's what he says he says. I agree but we still must have some means of regulating. How many jenner's we allow into the country and who can qualify to enter. He says a. wall is the most effective way to do this. When the bible says love the sojourner therefore for you or so jenner's in the land of egypt dude around me. Ten nineteen old professor old testament. Professor james hoffmeyer has demonstrated that these show jenner's resident foreigners in one translation where people who had entered the country legally with the permission and knowledge of the country that admitted them. The unmodified term foreigner in some translations is not specific enough to translate to translate hebrew gear. That is the word for foreigners or so jenner's a foreigner who had entered a country by stealth. It did not have recognized. Standing as a resident alien was not considered sojourner but a foreigner and still we are called not to oppress those people. I do not think executing the law to make sure that citizenship and the safety of our citizens matters counts as oppression. We have to be cynical about this as well as humane. And i absolutely think that we can be both we also have. We have to think about the wellbeing of american citizens to and that's not like people say it has to do with whiteness america's one of the most diverse countries in the world when we say citizens. We're not talking about white people. We're talking about all different. Kinds of people. We're talking about people of all different original nationalities. We're talking about the whole mosaic. That makes it the united states. We're talking about immigrants. Were talking about people with different. Melanin counts different ethnicities and all of that citizenship. It does not equate to whiteness. And anyone who tells you that is again trafficking in some kind of nonsense of critical theory and intersection analogy. That just doesn't correspond just doesn't correspond to reality. And so yes. I think that as christians. We absolutely have to defend the rightness. The logic even the morality and compassion of strict border policy and look. We can do whatever we can to help. Those other countries to try to stabilize. The fact of the matter is is that america has since those countries foreign aid for a very long time. a lot of those countries are simply corrupt. They are corrupted. A lot of ways and a lot of them are simply poor. And i'm not blaming the people who live there again for wanting to get out of them but america is the country where everyone wants to come to you. And i don't think just because you want to go into a country you have a right to go into that country especially not by a legal process. And when people say that about about america that they say that's bigoted. But if i said that you know you don't have a right to just walk into Kenya and become a kenyan. Just because you say that you want to become a kenyan people would agree with that they would actually say someone who did that would be guilty of white privilege and so i think we need to be fair here like i think we need to be honest here. America like every country has a right to protect. Your borders has responsibility to protect your borders. A leader who fails to put the interest of his country as a top priority in the safety of his country as a top priority is a failed leader. It's not a good leader not a compassionate leader. That's not a righteous leader in any way. Alright in so that's just kind of giving you an overview of everything. That's happening and i want to talk. Now to daniel horowitz who is going to kind of give us the rundown on on all of this and i'll just say like some of the things that he is going to say are going to especially if you're someone who's on the other side of the aisle listening to this like i just encourage you to hear us out because he's like very understandably passionate about this subject passionate about illegal immigration like here out the points that he brings up again. This is not about being against people. This is being against bad policy that we think has a bad effect on people. And he's gonna talk about this hypocrisy of covid regulations and the kind of lack of regulations. That are happening in regards to cova when it comes to allowing illegal immigrants and this is truly truly a crisis and he's going to give us some steps to take and he's going to give us a little bit more insight into what is going on before we get into that conversation.

I want to get your inside and everything that's happening at the border and immigration wise. You mentioned before we started this interview that you ve kind of been focused on kobe. Cove regulations trans things like that. But really your focus has been immigration for a very long time correct absolutely and really about fifteen years. This was the first year i've ever taken off of it and we will remember twenty eighteen thousand nineteen was kind of the super bowl this issue when we saw hundreds of thousands of central american stream across the border. And i just want to. Actually maybe start there. The the convergence of covid and illegal immigration. Because i think that's really important. I had a little bit of a different insight than everyone else did. When covert hit because that was the only less than a year after the first crisis in our time two thousand eighteen two thousand nine hundred the border and one of the things i covered very closely was the run on the hospitals by illegal aliens. It was a huge. It's a generic problem even on the interior. It's been talked about for many years but in twenty eighteen twenty one thousand nine hundred especially during the january two thousand nine hundred flu season. We had them coming in with influenza scabies. There were a lot of mumps outbreaks as well in some ice facilities on lots of contagious viruses were coming across and local communities. Local mayors would tell me that to deal with it. Americans had to wait on line at emergency rooms and places like yuma in del rio and texas. And i was saying to myself. You mean to tell me there's no public health prioritization. We can make that say. Hey look even if we taking a legal immigrants as based on. We're not gonna do it now and it was like no. You have to accept them in there. All asylum-seekers then fast forward. We went through covert and it was like ali. There is nothing a government cannot do if you say covid with a noun of urban a commanding a sentence right here life. Liberty property gone the objective of alleviating. The stress on hospitals is the number one priority of government. This what we were told. And supposedly these measures were supposedly going to work which they clearly really didn't and there were three subsequent waves even after they did it but nonetheless that was their intent and that exist today and to me. What is so shocking where people don't realize is typically when we see ways of illegal immigration. It's not a natural disaster. Like hurricane a flawed. There's a reason for it. They respond commensurately and directly specifically to the loopholes in the magnets. That you dangle in front of them that's what they will take it and that's what the smugglers and the cartels will be well acquainted with whether it's an executive loophole or a court mandated loophole. They will cross people in the areas. With the type of demographics that will best utilize that. We've never seen it so direct. We had it covered the border. Low stop because of covid. Trump was turning people that you know i mean illegal immigration should always really be illegal and this is really what we should have been doing for years but we finally did it. Forget about this cumbersome process where you kind of bring them in and they have a million different ways of litigating their way in. Just turn them around. If you wanna come go apply like every other country does biden took that plug out of the drain and directly opened it and said no. Now you can come back in and especially if you come in as an unaccompanied teenager and that's really what's what's the leading edge of this flow so then guess what the smugglers said to the families. Here let's sever off your fifteen sixteen seventeen year old boys and come in and then there there's going to be a crisis they're piling up then we're going to have to mandate and say they can't be without their families so it's kind of a one two punch but to come back just with to finish this first point. Think about it. If you're the biden administration there's nothing more important than covert. We can do anything. We want to human beings. We could put a mask on. Two year olds toddlers crying on airplanes no matter what. This is the biggest thing we have to stop. Maybe you could have small gatherings at july fourth. We have to stop. The large gatherings movement of people will alley. What is the greatest large mass gathering of human beings. That is the most dangerous epidemiologically speaking that is trains national misha because you're bringing in people suddenly multiple different epidemiological curves. So what we've seen with this virus. Is that you know. It's very seasonal and geographical. So we seem to be kind of done at least with this. Wave on a on a lull. But you know the winter spread happens in the southern latitudes a little later we learned this last theor the hope simpson curve so if you're from central american countries they're going to get what we would get in january. They'll get more on april and march and maybe may suddenly nothing matters a run on the hospitals. I'm hearing there's people in the del real hospitals again. Suddenly it doesn't matter. There's a two tier justice system in this country. We now they government of by for illegal aliens due to american people. They're not willing to do to stop illegal immigration. So here is back to that and i just want to hear your reaction to it because after governor abbot in texas. He said okay. There's not to be a statewide mask. Mandate we're going to open business as businesses and individuals can kind of make their own choices. Of course you got a lot of pushback from the mainstream media from democratic politicians democratic activists and now you are having those same people say that those who are making the argument. That just did that. Okay we're bringing in illegal. Immigrants completely unfettered not testing them for cova and apparently were just not worried about the spread of covid. People are saying that is just a white. Supremacist racist trope. That immigrants are bringing in disease is that they are bringing in all of these You know we're bringing in these viruses. That's that's just not true. That's the kind of pushback that i'm seeing on twitter. That scene from people in the media that no no no. You actually don't have to worry about the spread of cova when it comes to illegal immigration. There's no correlation there and to assert. That is just racist. So i kinda funny because i'm not into the racial argument. But it's actually. Cdc that says Blacks and hispanics are four times more vulnerable. And that's why they're actually downright having segregated vaccination programs to prioritize then. I mean then that they're more likely to die of the disease or die of the virus than a non hispanic or non black person. They're saying they're saying it both in terms of dying from it as well as contracting it as well. I don't know if that's true. But that is certainly an actually doing an article on that today with the vaccination programs. They're saying that in ohio for example they have different counties. That are mandating a certain amount of vaccines could only go to non whites and they have non whites only. I think they call it qualified. People of color could could come to a certain vaccination drive so it's actually interesting. I wasn't thinking of that until you brought that up. But they're the ones who are making a racial issue. But here's the more fundamental thing. This was the argument made more three years ago. Ten years ago. When i was dealing with this many of us were saying look you know. The vaccination rates are lower their. They have a different standard of care on. We were worried about kind of rare things that we had more or less eradicated to burke. Yellow says is a huge issue. There that is is not so much of an issue here The any ice agent will tell you that. They often have latent tb from being around the music dormant tb. Cdph is often have that. Because they're around them a mumps texas department of health. It's still on their website. I believe today. the texas has much bigger. Mums prominent anywhere in the country. But again that was the argument. I've been dealing with for fifteen years right now. Cova changed everything. It was all of us regardless of whether we had it have symptoms. Don't have symptoms whether we're vaccinated or not. We are all suspect and we all have to limit. Our movement limit are gathering and have to be tested. So we're just saying to treat them equally. We're not saying our argument is not that they have a greater rate of it. That has nothing to do with it. It's the same but moreover it's the argument alley. I give you a minute. Ago is which is very important and we saw this in june july of last year. It's not that some countries are worse than others. it's that they're on different timelines. Yeah seasonality and geography so typically. I am very much of the opinion that the virus is gonna virus and what's called non pharmaceutical interventions really. Don't help and it's very natural. Cyclical on and it's proven to do what it does. But the worst thing if you believe in. Npr is the worst thing you can do is unnaturally bringing in hundreds of thousands of people from all different corners of the world. Especially if you're locking down americans in america you know. They're coming in very close quarters there. They're in their camps in the cars a pack and a lot of people at once so the notion that you're suddenly not scared about trains national migration but you're putting on curfews within american cities is indefensible. But then again i guess it is all about their race and racial agenda because alley. We saw this last year. We were coming off of the greatest cessation of travel and movement in history immediately. Starting may twenty fifth. We went from having nothing to having what they themselves bragged about. I think some estimates as many as forty million people participated the largest most ubiquitous mass gatherings in american history with the blm protests so blm doesn't spread either or argument wasn't that they spread bore. Who's just the treated equally right right. And that's exactly what you're saying about immigration. It's not that their special carriers or special vectors viruses but just like all human beings we all have the potential to carry a virus. And like you said if we're going to regularly american citizens based on the fact that they could carry and spread the virus. Then why aren't we regulating illegal immigrants in the same way but it's not just that biden a sane. Alright come in. We'll figure it out. Maybe we'll give you a path to citizenship. But you can kind of stay here. We're not gonna turn you back but they're also hundreds of adolescence and you alluded to this just a few minutes ago. That are being taken from the border and transported to places like dallas staying in the k. Bailey hutchins arena convention center or being transferred to midland. And then from what. I read and what i hear the local officials there. They didn't have any say in it and they didn't they don't know what's going on and there's just a huge mystery surrounding this like what's gonna happen to these young people. I don't blame these young people in particular but what's gonna happen to them. And how are we going to navigate by the way why. Why is this happening. And has this ever happened before. They're just a lot of questions and not very many answers. When it comes to that this is really the third wave of what what what is designated legally by d. h. s. us's unaccompanied alien children. Let's go through a deep dive with that. Was two thousand fourteen twenty eighteen in the now and again each time it was responding to a specific incentive. In two thousand fourteen it was daca in two thousand eighteen. It was california judges a ruling that they had to be released. And then now it was going again. Harking back to the covid stuff. trump implemented title forty two which is not an immigration law but Public health law. Again i mean if we're shutting down businesses shutting down You know domestic movements. Were certainly going to shut down illegal. Migration and biden directly took that off what the cartels were told so. There's there's three status and it's important to keep in mind. They're not different demographics. They're the same people there. Different strategies of had across over there are single adults family units that have adult kids. And then there's the unaccompanied kids coming over alone. A what they were told is that immediately. They took away title. Forty two turning people around for the. Us's so they'll be leading family. Units it kind of depends on the sector and there's some confusion about that and single adults are still doing title forty two so if you look at the bill the data it directly reflects that. And what's funny is you think. Wow there's there's a bunch of them asylum problems that just affect teens or not males but just these people know it's a strategy that the cartels of employees where they basically exploit whatever loophole. We give them so. It's not that you have teens running around alone this. Here's the important relevant thing. A lot of people don't realize we're this notion comes from that we treat these people almost like refugees where we bring them in. We turn them over to h to office of refugee resettlement and the hold them and in this case they don't have enough room because there's so many so they're finding all these places and you're asking about the next step they next step is they're coming in. They're coming into fear. Facts virginia to montgomery county maryland. I say that because the largest buildup of us resettlement in america's actually the counties around our nation's capital so that's actually the border what comes at the border doesn't stay there. That's what you're learning in dallas and midland where you're going to see that really in every state and the thing about there's a lot to say about the thing about them is in in two thousand eight is when we passed this wilberforce trafficking section to thirty five a defined spree criterion to be eligible for this program and basically the resettled as refugees number. One they have to indeed be children. Many of them are not children. So that's another thing you know. How do you tell the difference between a nineteen year old and a seventeen year old border agent. Who who told me he had a guy there. He worked within the agency who was a dentist and sometimes he examined examined their teeth and he was able to tell you know that some of them were lying and number two. They have no parent or guardian present in the country and number three that they're victims of quote a severe form of trafficking so it was designed to me and so on grabs a guy brings him a cost. The the kid brings them across the border. So of course. We're going to take care of them instead. It's been used against us. It's a it's a smuggling conspiracy used against us. The families self smuggle pay to have their kids smuggled because they know that's a ticket it's more the the tail wagging the dog. because we have that incentive they're not victims of trafficking theirself traffic and then the indeed family guardians in america. They're not here alone. They're the ones paying for them to come Department of homeland security report. Two years ago showed that ninety percent of them were resettled with other illegal alien families already here so they're not alone. They're not traffic. they're not kidnapped. The really do not qualify for this status. But to answer your question. What is going to happen is they will be resettled. And you know we could get into this kind of a longer discussion. The next step is ms thirteen. We almost radical ms thirteen in this country last decade the twenty fourteen wave and then reinforced by twenty. Eighteen wave has grown. ms thirteen and and the thirteenth eighteenth street gang several other transnational gangs beyond the scale that they've ever been before because remember. These are often very hardened young males and allie. I cover crime a lot. I'm very into that issue criminal justice. It's not just central americans. it's any country. The demographic doing the crime is not the sixty year old. So it's not the sixty year old illegal aliens you have to worry about in terms of criminality. It's going to be those young males and they're getting an and again this is true domestically to they're getting younger and younger on the degree of violent crime they commit and what's happening now and i'm from maryland. This is all over the place montgomery. Pg counties in an also on the virginia side because you have a very large salvadoran population you have these teams that come in carte blanche so irresponsibly in such large numbers. They have no connection to the country. They have no sense of purpose. And what it's doing is they're the most vulnerable rod rosenstein of all people because he was us attorney in maryland before he was the justice department. He saw this and he said that is really where the solve this recruitment. And when you're young in new anti-gang you really have to show your moxy and up the ante of violence and get more gruesome than anyone else. And we've been seeing this so when you see thirty thousand. Teenagers primarily young males reaching that age of criminality. That is true of every country. You're seeing the future of ms thirteen. Growth okay. I wanna take a quick break from that conversation to tell you about one more ad today and not as a that. I told you guys about last week. And that is this precious book if you're watching on youtube. Abc life in the womb. So this is an alphabet book for your child that you explained to them jesse tient so to explain to them what happens in the womb using the letters of the alphabet it super cute just talking about child development and talking about how the baby grows and everything and it really is precious. I mean this is something that honestly. I didn't really know about until i was pregnant. I didn't really know. Honestly the whole process of how the baby grew and was nourished. And all of that. And so this is obviously. It's age appropriate for your child. But it shows your child the wonder of life in the womb and it's called. Abc life in the womb and forty percent of all proceeds for the book go goto pro life pregnancy centers across the us abc life in the womb is available for order at your favorite book retailer to find out more about the book. They're pro-life promise. You can visit their website at little life stages dot com that's abc life in the womb little life stages dot com. Talk to me. You talk you touched on this but talk to me specifically about the difference between trump's policy regarding immigration What was happening at the border and biden's policy that has incentivized this. I know that you said that trump said okay. You gotta turn around if you come to the border. That's that's the bottom line and it's not turning around people who have actually filed for asylum and has been accepted. It's not even applying necessarily true refugees. We're talking about people who are trying to enter illegally. Chump tried to deter that. You're saying that the biden administration has incentivized that. That's why we're seeing such a huge surge in illegal immigration. We're seeing this transportation of thousands of young men to cities across the country. Talked specifically about what those policies are by the biden administration. And what you think is is the why behind it. Because it's very hard for me to see the reasoning behind these kinds of policies. Sure it's truly shocking. But i think we need again a little bit of a background on the history of this a lot of people. When when they talk about the border they get caught up with the manpower. The strategies the border wall the infrastructure. And you know. I was always of the opinion from my experience. Dealing with really every facet of this issue that it's not a manpower issue. It's illegal incentive issue if you ask them to come they'll come. If you don't want the i wrote an article the best way to stop illegal immigration by making a legal immigration illegal right. We don't because i mean officially it is but then winking nod We offer all these incentives and bring them in and you have the whole court system and everything and the reality is. There's nothing natural about this. There's nothing you know or or or there's nothing specific going on now there's asylum right. Say what you want about the northern triangle. But it's a very homogeneous area. You don't have a distinct ethnic racial political minority being persecuted by majority where you could disentangle a minority. The majority like the cities with the sunni muslims in northern iraq. You know that's not what's going on what's going on is this. There's eighty four countries that i have counted in the world that have gdp per capita lower than that of guatemala. So if you telegraph the neces- judge that you could just come here. I mean it doesn't take a genius to realise there's about one to two billion people in the world who would want to come here. And i can't blame them. They're kind of crappy areas to live in a lot of poverty. It's there's a lot of problems. And yeah i mean we recognize that but if you believe in that you actually have a moral obligation to lend boats and bring a billion people from all those eighty four countries that have gdp at or lower that of guatemala. And at least you cut out the middleman you cut out the cartels and the money they make the human trafficking and the rapes and all the problems that come on the way. I mean if that's what you wanna do lane boats but you know that would expose the absurdity of what they're doing so they don't do that instead what what happens. Is that central america. Because it's a land bridge and the have such established smuggling routes and they've had so much illegal immigration for so many years so they want the more you have the more you have because then they have their communities and family and relatives. So if you're if you're just from madagascar or something how many people from asker in the country so it's not as enticing to come but nonetheless the are coming a lot. Now from romania from brazil certainly hitting and cuba. I could actually look at I have the latest numbers here from texas. Dps for the week ending in march tenth. Which by the way we're catching about fifty four hundred people a day. That's an annualized flow if you extrapolate that two million people And yeah. I mean i see here. We got romania. We got congo Again not as many numbers as the central american countries venezuela is a big one ecuador brazil. I mean you know. The left. Israel yelping about the brazilian variant of covert. It's interesting we do have a lot of brazilians coming Over one hundred a week have been caught So a lot of extra continentals as well. So that's important to recognize. this is not about. Oh my gosh. There are the people who are being persecuted by people. Be at this time this place. Not it's general impoverished countries will always people will always come here if they can if they're in reality so what kept them from doing that there or three things that trump implemented and biden took them off number one. Was you know he. He had multilateral agreements with really the four relevant countries to the south of us to say that you have to claim if you really aren't asylum if you genuinely are you have to claim asylum in the first safe country and by the way on the un does designate recognize mexico as a safe country. So you know. Do you really want to come to america just to get a job that or family reunification or you really being persecuted and the proof is in the pudding. If you if it wasn't about that you would claim asylum there and connected to that was also that you can't just have hundreds of thousands of people breaking and say asylum. No we'll take your application but you have to do it waiting in mexico so that was called the mpp migration up protocol policy as well as the third party agreement. So those two together made it that they didn't wanna come. Because as you know alley this is not about escaping. What was in their country at least not an individualized persecution. It's more about. They want to come to america. Specific ain't wanna come to iceland. They don't want to come to any other kinds. That's where they want was just curses. I mean like you said. It's it's understandable but if there's not a process a legal process by which by which they can follow her by which they are following that of course we ceased to be a country we cease to be solved we cease to be able to protect our own citizens and of course people so quickly say well. That's an anti immigrant stance and it's the farthest thing from the truth. It's actually about protecting people of all different kinds of all different original nationalities that are in the united states especially illegally citizenship has to mean something that should be that the government is looking out for your rights and looking out for your protections and that does mean securing the border. I mean we went from america. I at least try to be america. First under donald trump to it seems like america dead last under joe biden. And unfortunately this is this is a product of that and also i think people forget that illegal immigration is not actually compassionate for the illegal immigrants coming into this very dangerous at the border and the more people there are the more the smugglers are incentivized. More coyotes or incentivized and the vulnerable the children. The women especially are made victims through this process. There's nothing compassionate. About what is going on at the border under joe biden and i guess my last question for you is like what do we do. People feel totally powerless people in dallas. Or like what the heck are we going to do like. How do we deal with this. What's your advice. Yeah it's it's really. I think to answer other questions. I also what what what. What was biden thinking. I think the believed their own naievty so in other words sometimes when you put a promulgate a talking point for so long you start believing. And they're obsessed with these are persecuted. People it's a silent and no because that would be finite and limited to a time place and people it's endless it's every impoverished country. If you tell them you can now come. they'll all come oli heck. I didn't realize that. I think they didn't realize that you you have no idea. There are millions where they come from and this pipeline. And i think that's what they're starting to realize that we were right all along when we said that the whole thing was a scam it had nothing to do with with asylum. I think they are realizing that. Because i did hear bite and say oh. If you're planning to come here. Stay in your town. And i'm like i'm sure that's not going to be super bowl. Rings hollow with them unless they actually start doing title forty two again and turning them around so we'll be interesting to see if they're forced to just because it was done too quickly not that they care about the border but i think they didn't think it would happen. This quickly like it took about. I'm trying to remember. It took about twelve to thirteen months in the two thousand eighteen crisis to get to these numbers we got into. Yeah so but then there's no trump though which means that didn't that was the end. Democrats have failed at this. And i remember at the time i was really pressuring the trump administration to put to put in place. These things in took a year longer than i wanted to but they got to it eventually. But that really was was spearheaded by the courts. This spearheaded by the executive branch. This time But i think. I think what's important in terms of my solution. My solution is going to be a states. And i think just as a philosophical and legal background. I think you mentioned something about anti immigrant. Immigrant is and there's a lot we could talk then. You're absolutely right that you don't do them any favors. Obviously you're empowering the cartels they're bringing a record amount of drugs because while they throw the families at the agents they bring in the drugs and also. That's where they bring in the previously deported sex offenders. A lot of people don't realize on a typical year. This is from last fiscal year. Just the people that ice arrested in mind you. They don't have access to a lot of the sanctuary areas. Where most them live they had a cumulative total of six thousand eight hundred eighty eight sex offenses five thousand three hundred fifty six assaults and seventeen thirty nine commercialized sexual assaults on trump over. The last number of years deported thousands of those people. Those people are making their way back now and what happens is the cartels so they have a business model. Where if you're a family you pay about five thousand. But if you're a previously deported dude. A criminal guy with criminal record so the thing that you is you don't want to meet an agent. Even you know under an open border because presumably they're going to remove you in maybe throw you in jail so you have to cross surreptitiously right. You have to successfully evade not just be delivered into their hands. So that's usually it'd be twelve thousand dollars. So the they have the They're called suicide loads where they throw the On the rio grande river they send all the rafts in and then the agents have to deal with it and boom. That's when they bring the really bad guys the number of sex offenders just for the first five months of this year is three times more than last year and you got to believe the cartels of a pretty good business model so those are the ones we catch. You can imagine the majority of them. We don't catch and i can tell you the number of god ways we typically catch about fifty four hundred a day the last couple of weeks. Just you know illegal aliens. The number of god always these are the people that through the blimps the cameras on the footprints. They have ways of counting and and it's a fraction of the ones that really that really got away about fifteen hundred a day so maybe a quarter of the flow are aways well But it's really a lot more than that. Those people pound per pound are much much worse because by definition those are the ones that have to pay more strategically brought in because they have criminal records right. So here's what's important. Texas has to step up and other states should crowdsource public and private funds to help x.'s in arizona number one texas. Gps are starting to do this. To what what they tell me. What border regions tell me is while they have to be babysitters at least texas. Dps could fill in those gaps to try to be spotters for them and get the bed guys. At least the bad guys now look ultimately. They can't really hold them for long and they turn them over to ice. And i have heard that isis even releasing criminal aliens because biden doesn't view afar national drug traffickers and drunk drivers as really a crime like so they have to have murder. Let's assume murderer and rapist. They'll hold. I think maybe we could assume that i don't know but that's where it's important for texas. Gps to texas isn in their state legislative session. They gotta push. There's two more bills. And i know you gotta run. Sp twelve fifty four. That's a bill by senator hall in the texas legislature to create an interstate compact with other states to start cooperating on ways to deter illegal immigration. I don't have time to get into now. But i wrote an article at the blaze. How states can determine block caravans on their own the legal and moral case for it. I quote a lot from scalia. On this issue states have sovereignty all things equal is the federal job but if they're working with the cartels to complete the cycle of a criminal smuggling conspiracy. A state is not left to just die. Can't you can't do that to. Then they have the right to push them out. We're not talking about steeds. Setting up their own visa programs or their own system. But they have the right to per protect their jurisdictional integrity right. So so and i think you're going to need other states and the. Here's the biggie. Hp twenty eight sixty to have texas build the wall. It is their territory. It's their territory on. This is representative. Slayton's bill they have the ability to do it. I think you know if they're worried about the budget. The american people would love to donate to something like that and the reason why this is so important is because right now we have half baked construction which worse than no construction biden administration. Even if you oppose the wall you want to complete the infrastructure in the gaps and then walk away from it but instead what they did is it's now worse than before because border patrol created access roads to to build it. You know they had to have access roads so you have a lot of very rugged areas in the big bend in the west. They never crossed their never. Now i see they're crossing they're unbelievable. Yeah and it's the same thing coaches county. Arizona very rugged. They're crossing their well. Why because now they could get cars in two access roads through the gaps. 'cause it's not completed but now they have the access rose they're nothing but cartel roads that we have built for them. Oh man we got problems. Then you laid it out really well and i know a lot of people are worried. Look like like you said. Take the advice that daniel is giving us. Make sure that you are holding your state. Legislators accountable on this. I know some people in california. It's it's a lost cause for some people but what we're seeing is a crisis. It's not good for anyone for anyone coming in anyone already in here. So thank you for explaining that. Can you just tell everyone where they can follow and find you sure. So obviously you can follow me at the blaze. Podcast or itunes podcast. I have a lot of guests on the discussed. This in-depth wells my own intel. That i get every day as well as many many many other issues at our conservative on twitter and of course at the blaze with all of our our columns and articles on an alley. Thanks so much. I really enjoy your show. Thank you thank you so much coming on really looking forward to come back care so. I hope you guys enjoyed that conversation. I know that it was a lot. There's just a lot going on. I just want to end the week by reminding yield to justice. I have to do every day to try to be as good as we can. At combining the compassion or the compassionate is demanded of us in scripture. With the truth. I don't believe in compromising one for the other. I think that sometimes we can swing on that pendulum. But god calls us to both and i think we have such a perfect embodiment of that in. Jesus himself that he never compromised in the truth like he was very harsh. I think sometimes even sarcastic like you can read. Jesus in your feelings get hurt because he really is so blunt with the truth but he was always. He was always carrying an attentive and gentle in his presentation of the truth and his talking about sin and his urging toward repentance and he called the rich and the powerful to repent he also called the poor the sick and the lame to repent. So god cared about the truth or jesus cared about the truth. He cared about repentance. He cared about sin and salvation even as at the same time and it's driven by his love for people. And i pray that we would. We would be the same way. We're gonna fail on it. But when it comes to these kinds of conversations especially when it comes to illegal immigration it can be so difficult to have these conversations in a way that actually make sense but we have to understand what's really going on and again what is happening there right now is not love. It's not compassion. And the fact that the media covers it one way when a republican is in office and another democrat is in office just tells us like. We don't need to take our moral cues or outreach cues from the media like we need to be seeking the truth as much as we possibly can and we need to pray to god for discernment in all things all right. That's all i've got to save today. We will see you guys back here on monday.

One Week Left - 10/27/2020

"Hello and welcome to the quick News Daily podcast where I give you the facts first. No clickbait stories. Just real news that matters to real people. And you're going to be in the evening and today is Tuesday, October 27th, and we are down to one week one week left until we find out what the people of America view as the right path for the future. Is it a want to be authoritarian demagogue who surrounds himself with? Yes men, and yes women, or will it be a lifelong public servant who is willing to sacrifice his peaceful Twilight years because he loves this country so much in my opinion. It's not a hard Choice today will cover part of why the former is struggling so much in the polls May son-in-law is disgusting comments and much more before we go too much further. I do want to mention that I got a new microphone. It's a condenser mic. So it's supposed to be more sensitive. I'm just warning you in case it's too sensitive and you get to know my voice a little too well, but we'll see how editing goes. Anyhow, let's get caught up starting today with some voting news, especially for my fellow wage. Konsa nights US Supreme Court voted 5-3 straight down party lines to agree with the Republicans here in Wisconsin and say that there won't be any extension for receiving absentee ballot back here. Originally a lower Court ruled that balance that were postmarked by election day and received within 6 days after November 3rd should be counted meaning that you must have your belt received by your club by the time the polls closed on Election Day at this point. I feel like Democrats are supercharged up to vote and we don't trust the mail anymore. So I don't think it should affect our turn out that much money. However, this is going to be closed maybe and if you still do have your ballot it may be best to drop it off in person at this point or pay for faster shipping justices Gorsuch and Cavanaugh ruled this way because they thought this would open the door to micro-management of Elections by federal courts, if they did uphold the sixth day extension, which sounds good on paper, but I really have a hard time believing any job. Vision from Justice kegstand is made with good intentions. However, like Justice Kagan wrote in the dissenting opinion from the liberal justices Trump shouldn't be allowed to purposely delay the mail so the votes are late maybe in any other year or with any other president Gorsuch and Kavanaugh would have a better point, but definitely not with this president. It's been a while since I've given an update on the coronavirus in America. So here we go over the weekend. We passed the insane Milestone of having over seventy thousand cases diagnosed in 1 day off is more than most countries have had total and more importantly as we get to Winter we're dealing with this more poorly than we did back in Spring. I hope none of our listeners are from El Paso right now, or if you are I hope you're being safe because it sounds like a morgue. I think they said the positivity rate meaning the percent of tests that are positive is around 20 to 25% which is sky-high. Especially you realize that they have a population of 680000 people so that could be a lot of people they also saw a 200% increase in hospitalizations for covid-19 than a month and am now turning their Convention Center into a field Hospital in terms of treatments the antibody-drug being developed by Eli Lilly, which is the one that saw its trial get paused because of a possible save Issue a couple of weeks ago they decided to end their study with hospitalized patients because it hasn't proven to be effective with that group of people what the headlines don't mention is that they're still continuing to test how it does with people who are just mildly to moderately ill with covid-19. So it's not a total loss for them yet. It also says that since it was found safe in that the illness wasn't caused by this or wasn't serious enough to be an issue. It will help the drug get approved if it can be used for other illnesses even maybe as a treatment for the regular flu or something like that, but that's definitely scary thought that if you're sick enough to be hospitalized, there might be new treatments available to help just yet. Although that doesn't mean that traditional techniques like something as simple as laying a patient on their stomach don't help. It just might be a good amount of time yet before something is widely wage available medicine wise and it's certainly not going to be available in just a few days like Trump wants us to believe to end this segment on a note of dark humor. Listen to this fake ad for Trump rally job. I think was created by The Daily Beast. They played it on their podcast the new abnormal with Rick Wilson and Molly Jong fast yesterday. It's sad but true and funny. Our USA it's the one the only the original Monster totally blacks get there early to get exposed first-come-first-serve experience in person the virus that killed nearly a quarter of a million versus 750 and get a free make the I see useful Again. Jim lucky winners will get to meet and kiss the super spreader himself. I'll kiss the guys in the beautiful women on the edge of other megalomaniacs sharing the excitement of a real Trump rally and covid-19 featuring his songs. Like what do you have balloon? It's no big deal. You take long enough and crowd-favorite. I give it supposed to my staff and all of my family this weekend one day only don't miss it a 4 by covid-19 and a funeral homes in America action off. I want to get back to what I mentioned in the intro, which is Trump's bizarre way of trying to attract educated Suburban women and I want to start with a great quote that Joe Biden handwriting is Sixty minutes interview with Norah O'Donnell Norah started asking Joe what he thought about Trump's numbers with these Suburban women are quotes and Joe just chuckled and said that trumps got this nineteen-fifties view of what the suburbs are like and that the suburbs actually have people of all Races living together just fine not only does Trump have an archaic view of what the suburbs are like demographically and what these women want. He also doesn't seem to make the connection that he treats Every Woman around him so badly and that people notice that I mean he gave his own wife the coronavirus, but in terms of words about women, he seems to almost exclusively described them as crazy when he was talking about Nancy Pelosi and his Allentown Pennsylvania rally yesterday. He said she was quote crazy as a bedbug and actually Trump would know a lot about that since they have real problem with those at his Darrell Resort in Florida. Don't you Donald Trump also said quote. We have a good chance of taking birth. The house I tell you because she's crazy and quote ladies and gents. There's been almost no talk about the races in the house this year because nobody thinks that the Democrats are going to lose any seats down. In fact, the Lincoln project folks things that they'll probably actually pick up between 5 to 9 more seats Trump continued on by saying that Savannah Guthrie was quote just terrible in that quote. She was coming out of her chair as she was asking she was crazed. She was crazed and quote because Leslie Stahl had the audacity to push back at his lies Trump called 60,000. It's quote crazy sixty minutes and said she was quote so hostile to me. Okay. Sure. Are you guys seeing the same pattern than I am it almost sounds like women in positions of power scare him. So he calls them crazy. To be fair. He also saves a little extra in the tank for minorities because he purposely mispronounced has Kamala Harris his name at rallies and he even plays out the mispronunciation his son-in-law was supposed to be the brains of his campaign, which actually explains a lot Jared Kushner is also not great at messaging with people of color. Take a listen to this one thing we've seen in a lot of the the the black community which is mostly Democrat is that President Trump's policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they're complaining about but he can't want them to be successful more than they want to be successful and what you're seeing throughout the country now is a Groundswell of support in the black community. Yeah, Jarod it's their fault for not wanting it enough good Lord. That's basically the whitest thing you could ever say and it's probably what he actually thinks as someone with money who made that money partly off of minorities who had no opportunities for advancement. It just makes you sound so out of touch. What a bunch of Genius Messengers we have in charge. I suppose we should talk about the elephant in the room Judge Amy. Coney. Barrett was made Justice Amy Coney Barrett last night proved that Mitch McConnell and the rest of the deplorable Republican Senators will work around the clock to get a Supreme Court Justice confirmed who wants to take away your health care, but somehow passing a stimulus bill that will provide Financial relief to Everyday Americans is too hard. The vote was fifty-two to Forty-Eight. Susan Collins was the only Republican to defect and vote. No bless her heart. She said thanks to voters of Maine consider her a strong independent voice. Even Lisa murkowski of Alaska who said she wouldn't support nominating someone until after the election decided that Heck if they were off, Nate someone she's going to vote in addition to the case about Obamacare that is due to be heard the week after the election the day after the election. They're supposed to start hearing arguments about a case about the wage. Lgbtq community and religious freedom. So I'm sure that the devout Catholic who led a group literally called the handmaid's will be super impartial and totally base her decision on the law, you know, right? That's another thing what happened last night should totally destroy any dumb facade. She tried to put up about being impartial. She agreed to be sworn in on the White House balcony. Well fake sworn in and listen to Trump give a campaign-style speech about it. That seems like a total non-partisan moved to me not if you care at all about the court trying to appear impartial this should make your blood boil. I know it does that to me now? I think it's probably better that the court can't hide behind trying to see them impartial because in reality they never have been presidents have or nominated people to it. So, of course, it's political but citizens have to trust that the law will judge them equally but again the voice of my head is saying that's never been to either especially for people of color and fraud. Anyone who's not rich and famous, but mostly people of color they're really sucky thing is that she's only Forty-Eight so she could conceivably sit on the court 4:35 ish years. But if you're somehow someone who is still on the fence about voting because this fight is over and Democrats couldn't do anything. Just remember that Clarence Thomas is 72 years old and Samuel Alito name is 70. So do you really want Trump to be able to nominate five justices that would be unprecedented and it would wreck this country. No question about it Beyond just trying to run out the clock on those guys as bad as that sounds I think it's going to be very tough for Joe Biden to resist the calls to add justices to the Supreme Court, although to his credit. He may come up with something better off. He told Norah O'Donnell that he'll put together a bipartisan group to figure out how the federal court system needs to be reformed which is a smart answer on multiple levels. But especially for people who want to get back to a Time the parties worked together and are worried about breaking this nine Justice president. Although it was pointed out on Twitter that Republicans Justified expanding the Supreme Court to 9 way back when because there were nine federal job. Circuit Courts at the time and now there are thirteen so that would be some pretty good justification for Joe, but first things first, we need to get Joe Biden into the Oval Office. I'd like to go on a bit of a tangent if I could to talk about something and I think people could write a lot about in future history books does everybody remember Jonathan swans interview with Donald Trump. It was the one that went something like this your former. John Nicholson former head of forces in Afghanistan said in this is when he was working for you that Russia is supplying weapons to the Taliban isn't that enough to challenge Persian over the killings of all weapons when they were fighting Russia to you know, when we were were they were fighting with the Taliban would in Afghanistan as a different era. Well, it's I'm just saying yes, but no no. No, I'm just saying we did that too. But I don't know I didn't ask Nicholson about that. He was there for a long time didn't have great success because you know, he was there before me and then ultimately I made a change usually heard that right. I mean well known in the intelligence that they arming the Taliban Russia, I don't know when you say arming is the Taliban but hang or they rupture a supply weapons and money to the Taliban. I have heard that But it's never again. It's never reached my desk and he said it on the record when he was in Russia doesn't want anything to do with Afghanistan. Let me just say about Russia Russia used to be a thing called the Soviet Union because of Afghanistan. They went bankrupt they became Russia just so you do understand. Okay. The last thing that Russia wants to do is get too much involved with Afghanistan. They tried that it didn't work out. I think if Trump goes on to lose otherwise, this is meaningless that that interview will be looked at as a real turning point. If not in history books then for sure in journalism classes. That was the first time in about four years that anybody figured out how to interview Donald Trump Swan came prepared. He had the real facts memorized or in front of him and he spoke with Trump and challenged him when he was so obviously lying most reporters that have interviewed Trump do one week fact check Pearl I if we're lucky and then they just moved down there a list of questions like birth. Paid by how many questions they ask and not the substance of the interview. I'm looking at you Chuck Todd. These American journalists are also obsessed with having access to these people which I found out is a real thing and by having access, I mean that if you ask someone tough questions or make them look dumb, they probably won't want to talk to you again, especially with someone as Petty As Trump. I think it really did help that job once one was foreign because he didn't come in with the American mindset and approach to journalism to be fair. He does work with axios, which is American but he and mehdi Hassan a british-born journalism as a new night. We show on peacock at 7 p.m. Eastern are probably the two best interviewers out there right now, but the reason I say this was so important is because it gave other journalists the formula to interviewing Trump. Thankfully the media loved this one and covered it for several days. So then the next week Chris Wallace from Fox News did sort of the same thing and it just kind of snowballed from there and June. Kept a Lesley Stahl on Sunday night and make no mistake about it. All of these interviews have been damaging for Trump will just have to wait and see if that means that he loses the election but there's no doubt that John Swan cracked the code the thing that made me think of all this was this clip of him interviewing Ted Cruz For an upcoming episode on axios. And I swear this isn't a promo for them. I'm just really looking forward to him tearing cruise to shreds another tangent for another day is thinking what would have happened if Republicans had rallied around Ted Cruz like Democrats rallied around Joe Biden and thinking that he probably would have been a very too now that I know how much anti-hillary and misogynist thinking there was which is a weird thought for sure. Anyway, here's a little preview of what might be coming from that interview Mick Mulvaney wage had a great quote. He said, you know the deficits the worst thing in the world when Barack Obama is president, but Donald Trump came in and you know, we're not so worried about that anymore. He's right, isn't he? So look, I'm very worried about the debt and I'm worried about it under Trump now to be fair Trump didn't campaign on cutting the death. He did. He said he's going to eliminate the Thousand eight years. He also said something. What is it on the king of debt in 2016, right? Okay everyone else. That's where I'm going to call it for today. It is just one week until the most crucial day of Our Lives. So make sure you vote in that your vote gets counted if you have an absentee or mail-in ballot get anything in ASAP. If you need help understanding your State's laws or registering to vote or anything like that. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me on social media or add quick page daily at gmail.com.

Pretend youre a firefighter, people and its your house thats on fire.

"Well here goes nothing welcome to the Misfits podcast. I'm Shannon Curtis and I'm Jamie Hill a dumbfounded Jamie Hill, It's lovely to have you out with us. How are you? It's Tuesday, September 29th at 8:23 p.m. On the west coast meaning that the the presidential debate ended like, you know forty-five minutes ago or so and weren't we're both still stunned. Yeah. We thought we should wait. We should wait to record the podcast after the debate. Maybe they'll something to talk about. Yeah, yeah, there is there is all right people first. The Preamble Misfit stars is a community-supported Endeavour in the community is you if you like us if you like the podcast, please support it go to Misfits stars, and it's not slash support it slash joint. That's right because it's not just abstract one directional thing where you just like send money and we're like own now have your money you get things specifically what you get is to be a tighter part of the misfit Stars community and we want you in there is a self-selecting small group of people who have created an environment on the internet where we can have discussions in a mutually respectful supportive way and oh my gosh, especially after watching what happened tonight. How good does the Island Sound to U of a mutually respectful discussion also, maybe a group cuddle. I have a group cuddle my gosh. That's that's the public health hazard right now for a total. Okay, great job. People you're supporting us your self selecting yourself into a wonderful group of people just do it. A lot of the people is for this podcast have already done it. If you haven't you should join them this fitstar thought, thank you. Love to have you. Yes, you would unless you suck in which case don't fucking it in there. Seriously. The last thing we need right now is more stress. So if you're we had a substantial bump in our lives over the last few days, it's just some weird thing this happens every so often where there'll be like four hundred people. Usually our listenership average is like oh hundred or something like that. It was like four hundred and fifty two or something yesterday so I can only assume that a bunch of the new listeners suck them. So well, just just math. I don't know it's just math. I think maybe the year experience in the last two hours is coloring your view of humanity. Maybe maybe I maybe a hundred percent of this abnormally large group of new listeners is amazing is amazing. Yeah, it could be it totally could stay open. If so all of y'all get yourselves in their misery stars.com join wage. That's right. Yeah, otherwise go to Misfits Stars, I believe. Yeah, that's where you should go if you suck cuz we don't want you. That's it. So there was a debate. Oh gosh, normally we start off our podcast with a a check in how you doing, you know bad fine, you know know I know and so yeah like in in general I'm feeling okay. We did just watched just finished watching the debate which you know, maybe those of you who are listening also watched it and so you understand the feeling of birth of coming off of cortisol. It's streaming through our veins because of the stress of that experience. Oh my God, I just I feel I feel beat up. I feel like I I feel like I walked through one of those automatic car washes, but without a car like yeah, you know, here's a drag old beat-up barely alive. Oh God. And let me be clear. It's not a both sides. You think it's not like both people on that stage. We're bringing that stress that there was there was one dude who happens to weirdly Thursday will be the president of our country who stood up there and behaved like an abuser that he is. Like I just I feel like that I feel abused. It's interesting. There is this woman who you and I follow I know that some people who listen to podcasts follow her to her name is Heather Cox Richardson. She's a history Professor who writes a nightly summation of the news. It's been really helpful to both you and me and oh, yeah and I song Sweet by her this evening in real time. I was kind of watching Twitter a little bit just you know, as well as listen to the debate because I couldn't folks a hundred percent of my attention cuz Jesus Christ birth, but she's like, I think he a certain point. She's like, I think he's losing every single woman in America because we've all known this guy. Yeah this abuser. I wish that were true. I mean, he's losing a lot. He's lost a lot of weight gain. The vast majority of women and yet I log on to my Instagram like five minutes after all that was over and there's a young woman family member of mine who's a trump supporter who was posting like Yay, like this is after the debate posting like her support of him and excuses for it just astounds me like, I don't know how any person can walk and be like, yeah, that's that's a leader. That's that's somebody who takes anything. Seriously a lot of people grow up with abusive men. Yeah. I know what I mean and that's the norm for them. That's how they have people I guess for sure. Sure. Absolutely true. Absolutely true. I've had abuse of women in my life and you're right about that. But yeah, I mean for people if if abuse is what gets modeled for you then abuses what seems normal you know, and it seems and you spin it right in your mind. It's like like, oh, my dad wasn't abusive. He was he was charismatic. He he was forceful. He was a leader dog. Yeah, you know he was strong. He was a strong man. What was wrong but imperfect man, right right. Not a not an abuser right a strong a strong but imperfect man what we saw there was just just talk sick and also chaotic. Yeah, I think that what like two minutes in I think I turned to you and I'm like, all he wants to do is throw sand in the gear. So that's all this is only moved. He's so freaking week and people know it and he's losing like crate like more polls came out today. Yeah showing him behind by ten points in Pennsylvania and which you know, there's a margin of error five. So like that's not a done deal. We have to keep working for it to encouraging but it's encouraging he's losing he's week. He knows that he doesn't he also doesn't know it. He doesn't know absolutely not he just he his his lack of even basic command of any issue or interest in Jewish Donaldson. He has faith High command of Fox News and Breitbart talking points. Yeah, you know seriously like he can recite chapter and verse as he did very briskly and efficiently a number of times in this debate various Fever Swamp conspiracy theory, you know the kind of stuff that if you're not highly aware of the Fever Swamp far right like like system and one that talked about in there, we wouldn't no sense whatsoever which is why hopefully to a lot of people he just sounded like he was in comprehensible and making no sense cuz there's all these like trigger words and like dog whistle e kind of thing. Yeah, how about, you know to a normal human being it's just like he's just not he's just saying words. Right? Right. Someone has letters saying you need a you need a you need a graduate degree in Fox News to understand. What the hell he's talking about right now. Yeah Ray, it's only exists in that in that realm my own huge detriment. I understand it. You know what? I mean? I am literate in that shit. Yeah as are you, I mean, we pay attention we know what's going down. I wish I didn't well because we know people in our Lives who are who have bought into it and it's you know, so if we feel like it's a responsibility to know and it's scary. But yeah, that was just crazy making it was I thought it was crazy making some one another. I'm not just facing things. I saw on Twitter my commentary here, but one other person's astute remark was they were quoting Rachel Maddow from the Hearst from the show wrapping up the debate having Anna her analysis was that trumps not running against Biden. He's running against the election. Yeah, and and it's a really astute off. I think that bears out and all of his, you know attacks about mail-in ballots and vote my vote by mail and his you know, I'll just throwing sand in the gears of the system cuz he understands that's the only shot he has I thought for what it's worth it by did an amazing job refuting all of the the doubt that Trump was trying to throw onto the election wage. The veracity of the election. Yeah, he did really. Well. Yeah great with I love when he just looked straight into the camera was looking directly at us. Yes, like it was like thank you. Thank you person who actually cares about us cares about democracy cares about this whole cares just cares in general. Thank you. Yeah, you know his caring is a liability to him in situations like this in some ways not always they well they were he had he looked like he was being browbeaten a lot of the time, you know what I mean? And I still think that probably would be okay for him, you know, because it looked like he was being bullied, you know what I mean? Cuz he was he was being boy and that's that's exactly what that's that's it. Yeah, but you know there were times when I wished that he had taken the fight more back to the president and I may be wrong in that. Yeah, just and maybe it's just because I feel defensive of him because you know, like I'm Not Dead. You know, I was we were Elizabeth Warren fans. Yeah, and and before the Rim Yeah was wearing her shirt yesterday and four years before that. I was hardcore teen Bernie and so are you know home and there are you know, and Joe Biden doesn't excite me on the issues, right? You know, but that's okay. That's totally beside the point right now. That was to be that was for six months ago and not done and now off, you know, it's a different issue and the issue is that you know, it's either him or or re-elected president know it's either him or a fascist authoritarian regime. Yeah. That's the thing. Yeah for sure. But you know, he's honorable something I have always thought about this guy. I mean going back he's been a part of politics longer than I've been a little the exact same amount of time. I've been alive, right right. I'm forty-seven years old. Yeah for forty seven years in politics. Literally my entire life has never not been a politician on the national stage in the entire time that I've been alive and he's always seemed to be decent. He he is imperfect he is dead. You know, he's fallible. He's for sure. You know, there's a lot of daylight between what I think should be done in this country and what he thinks should be done this church. He's a lot more moderate than I am as a person, you know right off these days. I mean moderate is is is kind of almost right-of-center, you know, right and yeah, but he's reasonable and he's decent decency is so lacking right now in our discourse and to see him, you know, there was definitely a knife at a gunfight thing. But like what are you going to do? Like go onto trumpster Fair and just suck ass holes. Exactly. It doesn't help anybody certainly hasn't helped him. So I guess that that that there's a power imbalance there when one person is more willing to be a scumbag than the other person it creates a power imbalance. Well, I guess that's hard that's hard to deal with because it's hard to see a good man having to take that without being able to punch back. I just good to he didn't punch back. Yeah so suck cuz I dispute what what that that framing job. As as holds up as what what his powerful right? Because yes Trump thinks that he's being powerful when he bullies is the only move he has what is actually powerful is steadfast kindness compassion and Grace, you know, and and that that is actual power and it requires off so much more of a of a of a Steely character. Does that make sense? Is that can I say that just like, you know solid core. Yeah, that's a human to be like that in the midst especially man kudos to Biden for like four actually lasting an hour. I know I've just being whipped by a big family. I mean and he wasn't whipped cuz they were moments where he appeared faltering and some of that has to do with the fact that he has a stutter. Yeah stutters are exacerbated in stressful situations for sure. This was freaking stressful for him. Oh my God. Stressful for me. It wasn't even an English girls to the room. It was thankful for everybody. You know and I wonder you know what I mean, you know people like you and I who have empathy and Humanity look them go. Well. He's he's a man with a stutter who's being bullied and if he appears faltering in this moment, that's why because like he is he's never been like a verbal pugilist. He's never been fast life, right? He's been forceful, but he's always done. So in more of a considered yes way because he came up in a time when people were just allowed to speak when it was your turn. You got to talk. You got to you got to use actual rhetorical flourish and have to try just get words out as fast as possible and and keep doing like Segways and pivots, you know something I noticed literally the only time the president ever paused in the middle of an interruption was when Biden would say and by the way, because that's a rhetorical flourish that Trump also uses. Oh really? Yeah. He uses he has he has his own version of it off. Those same words Biden's words are and by the way, you know, and it's funny right? It's a way to create a semblance of continuation when you're just trying to buy time to get the next words in your mind. Yeah. I mean, I know I get it and it's like them relatable line of the night from fighting was would you just shut up man. Will you just shut up? I have never felt something so deeply and fully in my cell as I have as I felt that statement Faith movement. Yeah. Would you just effing shut up forever forever and ever and ever there was another moment another couple of moments when I felt just a sense of like yes from Biden and it was when he was talking about voting and he was he started a couple of different times when he was like so good afternoon vote and once the votes are counted if I win, you know, like he was he was it was in the segment where he was reassuring folks that the elections going to go as it's supposed to you. Have a voice useage. Vote and then he said a couple of different times and then when it's over it's all over it's all over and I'm like, please get it be all over this is be over and I I'm not naive thought, you know, he's going to go know it's well, I mean, who knows what will happen between election day and inauguration day. I understand that that could be a real dumpster fire. But and but even beyond that like it's not over in terms of we have a lot of work to do to to build back our country to to to to tear down things that haven't been working for a long time and reinvent reimagine and reinvent them, you know, there's it's not over but man it's the beginning I would like for this chaos to be over like for this present chaos to be done locked up and sent away on a ship to see forever. I just, you know want not to pay attention to politics every day. I would like that song. You know what? I mean would like for our podcast to not be about politics and remember that remember back when Obama was a president and like I I just think we remember like I would go sometimes a week or two at a time without hearing a single thing about him. I mean and and then when you did it was kind of boring. Yeah how great you know what I mean? I mean I do hope I do hope that from this era we do have a more generally engaged population people generally more tuned into what's going on in our government because I think the more we are engaged the better results we get as a people, you know, so I think that like to suck out entirely is not the goal here, but I don't want to have to be checking to see what's on fire every day like that. That's man how many years of our lives have we lost to the stress coursing through our veins to bring this time? Like seriously, how is this affecting her health and like it hasn't been good. I'm sure we're like, we're like The Princess Bride dead. Welcome to the pit of despair, you know and who's the who's the bad guy with the six fingers? The six-fingered man goes in like, you know, he's he's going to take one year off of off of Wesley's life. Yeah. It's like very painful and then you know, and then Prince Humperdinck comes in. He's all pissed and slides up to a hundred. Yeah. Yeah the fifty years. Yeah, but like how many how many years in the pit of Despicable had shaved off of Our Lives? Yeah, seriously from us by this just horrible time. Yeah. Yeah song. Yeah. I'm still just processing what a remarkable experience is just was you know, it was so unusual, you know, and it's weird. It wasn't like it wasn't like I didn't recognize any of the constituent parts of it. It was just it was like but the thing that all those parts formed together today to make was new, you know, it was it was like it was like a new Frankenstein month. Sure of bad parts and pieces things, you know the the stream that you pulled up for us to watch was the CBS. I was okay. Yeah. Anyway, I thought I don't even know their Norah O'Donnell whoever she's on that's who it was and kids is the first person on camera. Once the the stream has ended of the debate team. He just looked done like she just like frazzled. She looked like like and she was able to get words out. But man, I think that's just a collective. Holy crap and like she was like that was weird or something. You know, I forgot what she said like that was chaotic or something. She she certainly is the word better than weird and then someone from off campus someone who like who didn't even have the Talking Stick in that moment was like and strain, you know, she all written and the bullying and she was yeah, I wrote down was a gas and the bullying. Yeah. That's right. Yeah, I am. It was an event remarkable enough to make a complete breakdown in on camera decorum for you know news anchors hosting a presidential debate. That's something right. These are professionals who are so composed and speaking of the Professionals in the room holyshit. Did Chris Wallace? He was not up to this time who could have been I mean, okay, but let me get talk about that. First of all, I don't know what a person in his position does. I'm not defending him, but honestly, I don't know what you do. I feel like in the face of somebody like Trump who just won't shut up. I tell you what, you should be a woman. I think a woman would have been such a better debate moderator because he's scared of women. Anyway, he's not he like he'll he'll yell over man, but I think that women scare him or like being told to shut up by a woman might have thought more. I don't know. I'm still under now. I mean, I thought that for Chris Wallace Chris Wallace got pretty forceful and trying to an hour and 15 minutes in there was some there was some closer to home. Getting to honestly, I mean again not to be totally like I saw this one Twitter, but someone else was like Chris Wallace would not make a very good substitute teacher and I'm like, I know I've been Associated teachers like you're just out of your depth you walk into a classroom like that with a with the classroom full of people who just want to ruin your day. That's their only goal. And that is exactly what we saw on that stage. Trump's only goal was to ruin all of our day. Yeah. He did. Yeah. Yeah. No like Chris Wallace just out of his depth. Yeah, you know, he was not he was not up to the task. God bless his heart even he he made a game effort, you know, but I think so many people in this time, you know think that the normal rules somehow still apply to like this is the most that Donald Trump is a presidential, you know, it's a present. Well, of course he hasn't for the blast, you know forty seven months, but it's a presidential debate surely now right? It's just delusional, you know, I don't understand wage. And it literally took him seventy-five minutes to catch up. You know, he made his first forceful remark it like an hour fifteen and he he made a couple of tepid like three out of ten attempting to be forceful then like he didn't actually follow through it at all. Like he would get he would get beaten back down by Trump and then he would reframe the question with a more Republican oriented slant off. Yeah as a soft to Trump. Like how many times did he say? Well, you're going to like this then sir. Well, yeah and to me that is that said say I mean he was trying to coax him. He was trying to coax him into doing what he wanted him to do that has be quiet so he could get his question in and it just it just seemed to me like the kind of tactics that off that a person in a relationship with an abuser does you know like with an unreasonable person you you couch like you count to their their world? They're like birth. Framing of the of the situation in order to to try to get them to and it doesn't. Oh, yeah, I don't know how I don't know how how I would have done. I mean, I'm not a journalist in a debate moderator, but I don't I honestly don't know who could do a good job at that. I don't know. Yeah aside from like having the power to cut off the dude's Mike. Yeah, maybe that would get done although in the room. He would still just be ranting on the stage, you know? Yeah, it's true like that would still cause enough chaos to probably throw things out of whack. That's true. Yeah people people online were like cut off cut off is my account. Like that's not going to help right? Well make him stop talking, right? You know? Yeah, it's it's very it was very very strange. I think like I would have loved to see a black woman moderator. Hm. I don't know who the next moderators are supposed to be. We should look that up. Yeah, that's that would be interesting to to see I I think one of the things that religion Just stands out from an overall point of view on and this is not new information. But just you know, as a sort of overall experience from tonight is just how much Trump is uninterested in doing this job. He doesn't care to know anything. He just want he's he's uninterested in the work. He's uninterested in in running the country completely and he doesn't know anything but the talking points. He thinks are going to score points of this base and and she said that contrasted with you know, a guy who actually was standing up there trying when he get a word in edgewise to like lay out here is what we need to do to contain the coronavirus know we can't bring we will not be able to bring the economy back until we've solved coronavirus that has to come first, you know, someone who's just intelligently thought free 2 seconds about you know, what what needs to be done and who actually needs to help off. And that know the the economy is not booming back right now. Maybe the stock market has rebounded some but average folks are not feeling that the stock market is not the economy. The reason the stock market's doing so great is because companies can the companies know in a time like this that when there's high unemployment that they hold all of the cards right and they can screw labor and that makes them happy and think and and their future feels bright when they can screw labor, but it was just such a drastic contrast, you know have one person who just clearly doesn't know and doesn't care to know any about anything about the long tails in any of the problems that he's ostensibly supposed to be engaged in helping solve for all of us. Yeah with this other guy who has actually had, you know, thoughtful consideration about these things and has ideas and plans in, you know already on paper ready to go for when he hopefully god-willing is inaugurated in January, you know, some of em, And suck, you know what? I mean? Some of the plans are not plans that I you know, they're not Elizabeth Warren plans. A lot of them are. Well, here's the thing you were saying earlier, you know that there's a lot of distance between what you like where you see yourself. What would you what you would like to see happen for the country and where he's at and I think that is true, but that said I think I've been encouraged by a couple of things. I've been encouraged by the fact that he that Biden has made them about how he understands that his a president by the presidency and starting in 2021 would have to be because of specifically because of the coronavirus pandemic off and the economic Fallout of all that that his presidency is is going to have to be an FDR type presidency full games. I've you know, I've seen him say that so I think he understands that he needs to be a lot more bold in his policies than he was in the primaries when we were, you know, debating whose ideas were best for the Democratic and things changed too since the primaries. Yep. He has recognized his credit that they've changed and that's good right now like being able to adapt to information is pretty good as friends in having a leader who can adapt to new information. Yeah, it was uninspiring his home when he kind of threw the green New Deal under the bus this evening well, but here's the other thing like I I saw on Twitter after the debate defending the the climate plan that the Biden campaign has put out because she was on the committee. This is one of the things that I didn't campaign did was one he was clear. He was going to be the nominee. He reached out to folks that were had been working on campaigns like burn a campaign and Elizabeth Warren's campaign to incorporate their ideas into the Democratic platform. And AMC was defending Biden's climate plan know it doesn't go off as far as she would like to go and she's someone who obviously is a co-author of the green New Deal and so you know, and and I support the green new deal for that matter too, but she's like look given the given the option. Energy to influence This president's plan. We did we came together and came up with a plan together and show like even even AMC is defending the fact that violence climate plan is a whole heck of a lot better than no Klamath. No, plan, even if it doesn't get all the way to some of the goals of the green new deal. It's a it's a step toward that you know, and I'll take it down payment on that. I know absolutely also, I think that's like once you start doing one little part of something related to the green New Deal the whole rest will just naturally fall into place because it will be so massively income-generating right, you know, I mean millions and millions of jobs in America making the infrastructure for the next iteration of how we do energy in this country holyshit. There's so much possibility there. That's the one thing that I do wish that Biden would be able to them have been able to tonight talk about when he was asked as Chris Wallace asked him a bunch of times to reiterate that whole idea of like, well, you know, do your clinic plans actually work economically when I would love to see him do is be like dead My gosh there's so much opportunity. Yeah, there's so much opportunity for both developing a green infrastructure and a green future for us and see to see some real economic growth and jobs for people to create this all with with American Union jobs, right you bring all this manufacturing you bring the manufacturing base for all of this back to America. You don't use solar cells made in China, right you figure out with American Ingenuity how to you know, it's it's uncontroversial if we put our minds to it. We can absolutely make anything. We want to make really really well, you know, when you bring it back home and you make sure that there is a union jobs and that they pay well and they have health care and you know, or that everyone has health care and this is something that doesn't have to be defended apologetically know it can be promoted. Joyfully be that there's a real there's a there's real possibility. You wouldn't want millions of yeah. Well paying union jobs. Yeah. Yes. So, you know, it was so hard there were mome. When Joe managed to nothing, it's nothing to do with what he did at all. You know, just when the president managed to keep his fucking Yap. Shut up for like more than like 5 seconds. And when Joe had like a few uninterrupted moments, he was able to a lot of the time articulate a positive vision for this country. And that was great A lot of the stuff that people need to hear about him. The really positive stuff just got drowned out about Joe. Yeah. Yeah, you know, well, that's exactly what what trumps goal is. I mean, I think honestly, I think that in in the Dark Knight of Trumps Soul. He knows he doesn't stand up. Yeah as a human next to Joe Biden, he doesn't have a single thing to offer standing next to a man who are actually lives a life of decency compassion and kindness empathy. Yeah consideration of others and service. Those are those are qualities that Trump doesn't he doesn't understand English. Finishing of the words know I mean, I think that, you know his insecurities people who serve her suckers well and I but I think his I think that in the in the the dark Center of all of that Bluster wage is a deeply insecure person sure who under who doesn't have any sense of his own self worth and he just and so I think I think he knows all he got against a man like Joe Biden is to just try to throw sand in his eyes. You know, that's all he's got. Yeah, it's too bad. Yeah. I feel an enormous amount of I don't know empathy sympathy for the president, you know, just just for like how miserable you must feel all the time and clearly has like since he was a kid, you know, he's probably felt like a piece of shit his entire life, you know, just a damaged little person turning into a damaged young man turning into a damaged a dog. You know, yeah. Well, that's true. And at some point you become a person who is old enough to take responsibility for your actions. Yes. He has turned all of that in them too. Well, he's he's proven. He's proven the point. Yeah, then he's a worthless piece of shit. Yeah, you know home so I don't even know if we have the bandwidth to like really talk about much else and I I feel badly listeners that this is all you get tonight is this debate recap wage in a non-political podcast, but here we are. Yeah, right. We needed we needed to vent a little bit. You know, it's it's enormously distressing. I hope it doesn't happen again. That's my big takeaway didn't seem productive. Yeah just didn't seem like it was doing anybody any good. Well, there are two more scheduled. I it'll be interesting to see if they I mean I thought Yeah, I heard any suggestion from anyone on either campaign or whatever. There's not going to be two more. I think if I didn't were smart, he would just unilaterally cancel him. You know, I mean the president going to talk shit about him regardless. So who cares, you know what I mean? I mean, what's what's something worse than Trump could say about by than anything. He's already said about you know what I mean? You know, I mean who cares there is there is the perspective though that you know with the presidential debates do reach into people's homes who haven't been paying attention to politics at all, you know, it was literally this debate and then the next to if they happened are on Mom covered by every Network every cable news station airs it live like it's you can't avoid it, you know, if you've got a television in your house you're seeing the debate and so it's it's kind of like a need for some people. It's one of the first real, you know engagements. They've had with these two candidates and in this process, you know, which is I mean, I don't personally understand that but for some people it is. And so from that perspective though, there are some people who surely tuned into night and we're like, oh man, there's a guy up there who's being just a total dick and a bully and off and I I've interacted with an abuser before my life and I recognize that behavior and he wants to be president again. Oh and they're just other guy who was got some actually like coach and ideas about how to like country like yeah, but also that way but also like if Biden if it were like Warren, I would agree with you whole lot more but by it has been a known quantity who is a freaking life isn't like everybody knows who Joe Biden news. I mean Joe Biden is not a mystery to any single person in this country. Yeah, you know everyone knows him. He's been a fixture for the entirety of my life span and I'm not even young anymore. You know, I would I would sign up for having two more debates if it would be two more opportunities on National Television on every Network and every, you know cable outlet for him to be able to do them. That voting message that he gave tonight. Yeah, that would be worth the price of admission. You had a couple of wonderful moments, you know, honestly, that's the thing that we need to get. We need people to be motivated to actually vote to vote as early as possible to get the job done and the amount of people who who typically don't vote in our elections isn't abysmal Lehigh number. Yeah, I guess you usually use the word abysmal with something low. But yeah, it's a it's a very it's way too high of people who have not been engaged. So if it's like a very it's like an abyss but a peek it's like a combination of an abyss but an apex. It's like a pest bulb. Yeah. Okay. Yes, you get my point. But like if we can if we can, you know motivate more people to show up to vote. Then we might be able to actually keep our democracy. Yeah. Yeah, you know and the cynic in me of course is like how is too old white men, you know, and the way it's going to happen is that they were yelling at each other. It's not right but it's the way it's going to be framed right? I'm sure and it was also the kind of the way it appears, you know, like when you're arguing with a fool from a distance. It's hard to tell who is who that whole thing happened, you know, and I really wonder if if the very fact of the debate itself is just one more anti-democratic thing that Donald Trump is doing like you said it was you know, you quoted someone saying that it was him not him versified me him versus need action like him acting like this and debate is one more way to do voter disenfranchisement and suppress turnout. Well, he's he's going to do that no matter what at least tonight. He was hooked on it by somebody with a microphone. Yeah as loud as his, you know, which doesn't always happen. Yeah, you know, it's funny like so Chris with the moderator failed abjectly lie in the first half hour, you know, he's dead. Florida got a little bit of gumption way too late. Everyone always says that the first half hour is like what most people will watch over who had too much and turn it off and and a standard of regardless of the debate people just don't like debates very much. They're either boring or horrible, you know, this one certainly horrible, but you know generally speaking the under I think accepted metric is that people tune in for first half hour, you know, and then the numbers drop off sharply. I was the most important and in the first half hour the moderated into any there was no guts you fact-checking. There was no holding to account there was no there was none of that. But also what that did is that let the president just be an unfettered asshole. And in that first page of our Biden did manage to get out both the will you shut up man. Will you just shut up man line and also the calling him a clown right which was great. It was so young and both of those were so spontaneous. And so great. You know, it wasn't like he wasn't like he'd rehearsed. It wasn't like you thought about it. It's just him interested just it just being brutally honest in the moment. It's like you go. Wow. Nice. I felt that a lot. I was just like man. I feel you being that frustrated. I look also I loved it. Like somebody called the president United States a clown off TV, and it was not that remarkable. You know what I mean? It was like yeah that checks out. It totally does like even his supporters. I'm sure we're like, yeah, that's fair you my clown but that's fair wage. Oh my gosh when I would love what do I what I would have loved to see him do was do one of those things where he turns directly to the camera like he did a few times. Yeah and just be like, I'm so tired of this aren't you? I know it's just you can see the exasperation on his face a lot of time and I feel feel it and I think a lot he could take advantage next time if there is another next debate over that whole like, you know turning and speaking directly to the camera then yeah, he needs to do it more of that where he he where he did the worst was when he was SpongeBob. Into the moderator, you know, like the the strongest thing is people the camera the second strongest thing is speaking to Trump. The weakest thing is speaking of the moderator and he did the last the ladder a lot and I may have to cuz that's the guy asking the questions. Yeah, that's it just needs to be trained out of that because that's not strong looking, you know, looks like you're like failing to engage the person you supposed to engage with cuz he's a bully which fair I know but like also offer, you know, it's it's a person's running against, you know, he doesn't need to run against him on his terms, but he definitely needs to like engage him. We need duct tape. That's what we need to go across from smells when it's not his effing to talk with that be great. If you just listen, we just enjoy that fantasy for a moment duct tape over trusting. Yeah. Yeah, that'd be nice. So, do you have any other thoughts that you want to share feelings? I'm feeling you know, I told you earlier today that I was just abstractly anxious. No good reason, you know just dead. This didn't help but it didn't really make it worse either that's good. You know, I was like, yeah this fence. You know, I love you had a chance to talk it out. Honestly that feels somewhat better to just you know, get it out. I don't get the feelings out get the thoughts out. I'm interested but also kind of like, you know, this is going to be just a shitshow kind of way. You know, that sometimes like that car wreck way of like this is interesting bad, but interesting, you know, I'm interested to see what the the takeaways are like how it's framed the fact the honest way to frame it is the one two people were trying to be decent and one person was being a sociopath that's that that would be the accurate honest way to bring the situation. Yeah, I fear that it would be both sides. I mean often as you know, it often is except for Norah O'Donnell space and yeah direct out, you know, leaving out of the debate was was very novice idea was just like holy cow. It just happened. Yeah. Anyway, it's worrying to me that the president is trying to deal to delegitimize the very idea of a debate page. It's just one more thing in the Democratic process that he's trying to turn into a farce. Yeah, because when things are a farce that that that brings it onto his Turf and he can win on that Turf because no one is better in a farcical invite that he is but he's just surreal is shit. Right, right. I think maybe let's not say he can win on that Turf. I think that it's maybe accurate to say that's the only turkey has left. He can't run on his business record. He took his presidential record. You can't run on the economy or on the health of the nation. I mean, like there's failure failure failure failure failure failure all the way down. The list has nothing else to stand on except wage to throw sand in the gears of democracy. And and he that's it's it's possible he could win on that Turf but it's it's not it's not that is not by any stretch of the imagination a a a sure thing also like something we didn't touch on but I want to touch on briefly is what is the point of doing a debate with somebody who lies about everything? Well when there's no fact-checking in real time off. There's no push-back and everyone knows the fact checking if it doesn't happen immediately and in real time is completely useless because no one hears, right? So like, you know, like about that tax break, you know, like his business record thing. He was challenged directly on that like, you know, you paid $750 in taxes and you know, 2016 and 2018, you know, will you say to the American cheese exactly what you paid and she just made numbers up. I paid I paid I don't 39 milk. Yeah, I just kept saying bigger numbers. I paid Millions. I paid 5016000000 $39 million. Yeah, I you know and he did that for every single thing that he was pressed on right and so like if the point of a debate is to get to get to facts and then after getting too fat to get two different approaches to those facts, you know, if someone is lies all the time then once a point in debating him, yeah answer for that. No, I don't I think that maybe it would be wrong. To approach this particular election as being about debating facts or issues as it's just not you know, so I think well this this debate is Faith is maybe to Showcase who two different people are and who do you want to lead you the next four years not like people don't know who the president is. Well, I mean off again, there are some people who haven't been paying attention. There are some people who do not know Donald Trump is so no but like in terms of of of his like absolute cuckoo bananas Ness of Donald, you know, like you don't necessarily see that reflected in headlines or in you know, top-line stories on the news, you know, you don't necessarily see that if you're a person who's not paying attention, there are people out there who this is literally the exact time that they may be paid attention. You know, it's not a lot of people probably given where we're at as a country like but there are some and again like how many there were more non-voters in the 2016 election than than than the people who voted for either Clinton or Trump, right? There are a lot of people who aren't engaged. Yeah. So even if we get a sliver of those people to see oh boy, that guy is a sociopath and this other guy not maybe I'll vote for the not sociopath. Yeah. I don't know, you know, if someone's dumb enough to be that disengaged to begin with they're not going to think about it in those kind of like rarefied intellectual terms going to be like this guy's yelling all the time. This guy's old and faltering. I can't tell what the hell's going on. This is stupid issue. Of course, I'm not voting again. He's not old and faltering and that's how he appears that in the debate a lot of the time especially if people like you start talking about it in that way, that's not true. I'm just we had addressed his earlier in this very podcast, but it's because he's has a lifelong study is a stressful situation. Saying like the average uneducated viewer like looking at this thing, you know, he doesn't come across in a fast-paced environment. He's not fast paced. You know what I mean? Okay, it seems like he's like a Rolls-Royce up against a Ferrari like it's just more class on the style, but he's not as quick off the block and you know, and in a fast-paced environment in a hot medium like television like it doesn't Advantage Hamid advantages the other person, you know, I'm just saying for the synthetic oil completely on it like uneducated viewer that you're talking about. I'm just trying to imagine how it would look to them, you know be like this one guy's being completely chaotic. This one guy can barely get a word in edgewise and when he does have the time he stammering I mean like why would that Inspire anybody who was a non-voter in 2016 to be like, well, this is what's making me vote. So what do you what do you say that about? What's the solution? What's the Jamie Hill Way Forward then I did not know I don't have one. I'm just I don't know. It just doesn't strike me that this is helpful. But I do take your point about like it's at least you can see who the people are. But then I Circle back to the idea of who doesn't dead. Know who these two people are people who don't yeah. Yeah. And is this going to motivate them all of a sudden to become engaged citizens, you know what I mean? Like, I know it was just going to motivate someone to become an Engaged citizen. We don't need people we don't need for this to to motivate people to become engaged citizens. I mean we I would like for there to be more engagement but I think that that's what we're working for is an election where there's a high turnout. Yeah, the higher the turnout the better chances we have of saving our democracy sure. That's we're working for that is a brake line. I mean like in that sense, you know the idea that trumps not running against violent Trump's running against the election. Well, then we're working for the election. That's what we're doing. We we're going to continue our phone banking to recruit poll workers in Wisconsin to make sure there's enough polls open for people to actually vote. I got two people in Milwaukee County husband and wife team yesterday that felt good. So, you know nickel if you want to do phone banking message one of us, that's right, but we're wage. For the election we're working for massive turn out when we have a massive turnout. It's going to work out well for us across the board. We just have to keep our eye on that ball. Yeah, we just have to still not sure all these debates are helping that but yeah, okay. And right on is that it? I don't have anything else. Yeah me neither. All right people. We apologize for this episode. Sorry. Hey, maybe you watch the debate team like man. I really wish I had someone to like to just complain about this with somebody. Yeah, and and we were that we were those people for you. Hopefully. Yeah, but you know that we will always keep it real with you process here on the Misfits podcast complaining. Yeah. So I mean, I reserve the right to complain by the time I was complaining I know you were for sure, you know, yeah, so thanks for listening everybody. We do appreciate you being here. If this surge that we had over the last couple of days hundreds and hundreds of your listeners persists through this episode, you know off Don't hold it against you if you were like no this isn't for me. You know, I don't I don't plan ever listen to this again. I want you to know two things. This is not a political podcast. This is just a podcast. It's a personal podcast run by two people who care very much about the place they live. Yeah, you know and right now democracy is it's it's in question here in the United States of America if you're listening from outside of the United States long Welcome to our world. Yeah, right. Yeah. So it's it's hard here right now. It's hard Everything feels like it's very single issue in my world right now on the issue is can we can we change the course that our country is on, you know, five weeks from now. I'm not 100% convinced we can I you know, I remain optimistic but I also understand that it's an uphill battle because a lot of apathy there's a shitload of like just an education out there in the world, you know, it's an uphill battle. We have to keep walking forward. We have to we don't have a choice. We don't have a choice we cannot log. At the the exhaustion from like tonight's debate experience to keep us from keeping working. We have to yeah, the alternative is not something I is not a reality. I want to live with ya to keep walking forward. Yeah, we just do yeah, so people now sign the volunteer in all seriousness, you know, the reason that Shannon and I are putting so much time into volunteering right now and just to be clear like we're each pulling multiple shifts two to three shifts a week at this point doing you know phone Banking and we're also we have started at like a pro-democracy group on Facebook page. Like it's it's it's a private group. You have to get approved to get in and you have to be doing volunteering actively or imminently like you want to but you don't know where to yet in this group will get you pointed in the right direction. And as soon as we educate you to get going then you can be in the group. That is at facebook.com save democracy facebook.com wage. Save democracy and that's the thing that Shannon and I are doing as another form of volunteerism is like meta volunteerism is a way that we can aggregate our community to then go out in the world and do volunteering and it's amazing. We've got the better part five hundred people in there now and it's really starting to pick up some momentum. It's getting to the point like that a group can get to where like I go in there and there's a bunch of posts. I haven't seen yeah, totally. Yeah, people are reporting all kinds of successes, you know sharing how they've been, you know nervous to get started with phone banking never done it before, you know, but then coming back and saying hey I had my first shift and here's a really cool experience. I had or I got you know to be able to commit to you know, voting by mail or whatever, you know, like it's been really fun to see people experiencing success and that's the coolest thing because like everyone of every one of us who shows up to be part of this and even in a small way, even if it's two hours a week or whatever it is that we can give it matters and it makes a difference add up aggregate all of that and we're going to do this so, you know like you were saying with our dog Your listeners if there are a bunch of new listeners this week a this is not normally a political podcast.

Quick News To Go: 2/8 to 2/12

"Of mr mayor. Where does ted keep going. If i don't answer the door. And that i'm here i'm in trouble. I'll be right back in. A bliss surprise from valley icon misty copeland to an aspiring dancer. You are what the future of dances. You're creating a new mold for what's expected. You're my hero. Kelly clarkson show today you to on nbc four. Today is monday february eighth. Thanks for joining me back here. Once again my name is brad spangler and today we have a bunch of different stories again. Some smaller ones mostly smaller ones. We have a lot of covert stuff. We have a lot more on biden policy issues because he did his first national interview with norah o'donnell last friday and we revisit a story that we did about a month ago about the flu in just the flu. Season the flu numbers for this year kind of interesting. Well i mean it has to be otherwise. I wouldn't waste your time with it so in any case let's jump right back into it and fell. Commissioner roger goodell wrote a letter to president joe biden last week. He offered to president. Joe biden to us every. Nfl stadium as a possible mass vaccination site. This means that there are thirty. Nfl sites that would be up for grabs now. You might be thinking. We'll wait a second. There are thirty two. Nfl teams but only thirty stadiums. Well the thing is the jets and the giants share one as do the los angeles rams in los angeles chargers. Some of these are actually already open. They have one in phoenix for the arizona. Cardinals atlanta baltimore the carolina panthers stadium in charlotte north carolina. Houston miami and new england which is actually foxborough massachusetts speaking of the nfl. The super bowl was yesterday and there were about twenty five thousand fans in attendance. Probably about a third of the usual number. That would be there. And as sort of a tribute to healthcare workers. There were seventy five hundred completely naked. Healthcare workers who showed up as part of that crowd. I saw a lot of on twitter about it's not really honoring healthcare workers if you're creating like a superspreader event and you know i'm not sure how i feel about that. Honestly one thing to keep in mind. Is that the empty seats. They had a bunch of cardboard cutout people. So if you thought it looked packed it really wasn't necessarily as packed as it was looking also. The stadium is outdoors and as we know. Transmission outdoors is nearly well. I wouldn't go that far but it's pretty safe. That said the chances are pretty good. That people were still waiting in line for concessions. Maybe they didn't offer him. I didn't see that or somewhere. Outside of the seats. They were probably in closer. Groups are closer proximity than they were in the stands. And that's kind of what i worry about. But i dunno moving onto other good vaccination news pfizer says that it's been analyzing how they've been making the covid vaccine and they found a number of different ways to improve so that they can make their manufacturing process even quicker. The improvements that they found should take the manufacturing time from about one hundred ten days per batch to about sixty days per bench. And that's nearly cutting in half. That is pretty impressive. The president of the immunization policy in knowledge translation consulting firm said that quote. Nobody's ever produced marin vaccines at the scale. You can bet your bottom dollar that manufacturers learning the go i bet you everyday. They run into some vaccine challenged in every day. They solve it in that goes into their playbook and quote some of these improvements include faster quality control and testing so they probably don't have creed on that adding manufacturing lines in the three plants with vaccines are made and speeding up the time it takes to make the dna from sixteen days down to about nine or ten days as of this morning at nine am eastern time there have been forty two million covert vaccines administered so actually in people's arms there have been fifty nine million distributed so over the weekend. The biden administration announced that it is withdrawing the us from agreements with three central american countries el salvador guatemala and honduras. These agreements required a lot of people who are trying to get asylum at the us mexico border to actually go to these countries. Apply their i for some reason reading here from the bloomberg article that i found this at secretary of state tony blinken said that the administration intends to work with the central american nations to reduce some of the insecurity in poverty that caused people to flee in the first place while maintaining the security of the us. Border trump was using these agreements to try discourage people from seeking asylum at all in the us but a ton of critics saw it as the getting out of our responsibility under international law to actually help immigrants who are fleeing persecution trump also started using covert as an excuse to deport almost everyone who came to the border anyway in the last bit of information here about new immigration stuff biden also set a task force to help reunite families that were separated through trump's family separation policy. There was some news about this last week but became official over the weekend. Here defense secretary. Lloyd austin has signed a memo that directs his commanding officers and supervisors to do a one day standdown sometime within the next sixty days to try to address the extremism that we're just finding out about or that we are confirming is going on in the armed forces. This means that on that particular day whatever day they choose these leaders will have to lead discussions on quote the importance of our oath of office a description of impermissible behaviors and procedures for reporting suspected or actual extremist behaviors and quote. Lloyd's said in the memo. That training is just the first step in quote. What i believe must be a concerted effort to better educate ourselves and our people about the scope of this problem and to develop sustainable ways to eliminate the corrosive effects that extremist ideology in conduct have on the workforce and quote a recent study. That was done by. Npr found that nearly one in five people who have been charged in the capital. Insurrection had some type of military history. This goes along with a twenty nineteen survey that the military times conducted where they found that thirty six percent of active duty. Readers had seen quote evidence of white supremacist and racist ideologies in the military in just one year before in two thousand eighteen. That same number was only twenty two percent which is still ridiculously high. So now we have over a third in. That was two years ago. He i think this is gonna take more than one day just a really short follow up story here about our story on fox news getting sued from friday yours a sign that maybe i was right in. That fox news wasn't actually that proud of their reporting about the twenty twenty election on friday night box. Business cancelled the show. Lou dobbs tonight which is actually the biggest show on their network. And if you'll remember lou. Dobbs was one of the three hosts that was named in that lawsuit. And there's still could be far from over for these people who are still lying about the election because listen to what this dominion spokesperson. The dominion voting machine. Company what he said that we should expect next from his company. Can you give us a preview of when the next lawsuits by dominion. We'll be filed. I'm not here to make news on that front but let me say this. Mike lindell is begging to be sued and at some point we may well oblige him. So here's the remaining scoop. On some other biden administration policies. Here are a couple of videos about biden talking about the urge and the need to pass the stimulus package relatively quickly. That's in fact we're going to be in a situation where take a long long time and Appreciate y'all from an over because urgency mature richard movement. This people's lives. This is not just about numbers. People's lives people are tell any of you are really hurting victims. Just look at all the number of people who need sticky mental health services now. Suicides up people are really really drug abuse when people are really feel the whole they don't know how to get out you've given them a lot of hope hope as say so. They're delaware the grace of god and good neighbors could not rise. We can really begin to do something. Consequentially so i wanna thank you all and what i you know president Prison put me in charge of covering act and it was hard as hell get the votes for it to begin with and then it was hard as hell getting number regard but one thing we learned. Is you know. we can't do too much. We can do to do to louis butter but again the end result is not just a macroeconomic impact on the economy and our ability to compete internationally. People's lives real live people hurting and we can fix we can fix and the irony of all ideas is when we help them. We are also helping our competitive capacity through the remainder of this decade. And it's real. It's got a chance to do something here. And i thank you for for last night yesterday. Much going to be doing this recovery. Act and i can hardly wait to sit down with two. Is your work on infrastructure. Thank you all for being here. thank you for. I know some in congress think we've already done enough to deal with the crisis in the country others. Thank that things are getting better. We can afford to sit back. Neither do little or do nothing at all. That's not what i see. I see enormous pain in this country. A lot of folks out of work a lot of folks going hungry staring at the ceiling tonight one. What am i going to do tomorrow. A lot of folks trying to figure out how to keep their jobs and take care of their children. A lot of folks reaching the breaking point suicides are up. Mental health needs are increasing. Violence against women and children's increasing. A lot of folks are losing hope. And i believe the american people are looking right now to their government for help to do our job to not let them down. So i'm going to act and i'm going to act fast. I'd like to be like to be doing it. With the support of republicans republicans. Some really fine people want to get something done. But they're just not willing to go as far as i think we have to go. I've told both republicans and democrats. That's my preference to work together. But if i have to choose between getting help right now to americans who are hurting so badly and getting drier bogged down in a lengthy negotiation or compromise on a bill. That's that's up to the crisis this an easy choice. I'm going to help. The american people are hurting now. That's why i'm so grateful to the house. And the senate for moving so fast on the american rescue plan in friday spoke about that budget resolution that passed africom. O'hara's broke the tie. So let's just hear that call as our fifty. The nays are fifty. The senate being equally divided the vice president votes in the affirmative and the concurrent resolution as amended is adopted. That is going to be fun to hear for at least the next two years. Then press secretary jen psaki not taking any s. From fox news reporter administration is gonna let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers whether it's playing workers or construction workers who are either work or will soon be out of work because e when and where it is that they can go for their green job and that is something the administration has promised there is now a gal. So i'm just curious when happens when those people well it certainly welcome you to presenter 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 happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend. Joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include their vote. So how about this. The laborers international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well mr trump 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 helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beat around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants that fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive the intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that trump has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the last story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple of weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent in. That was a new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with what they're seeing in why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covid and the so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times fewer cases celestial one hundred times more cases at this time when we had done eight hundred thousand tests back. Then the flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions in precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covid spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events that didn't happen before it's not like if he went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu you al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like covert sticks more easily. So it's easier to transmit of course doctors have some problems with all of this for one. Our bodies might start to sort of forget. The flu mean that they won't be able to produce the right or enough antibodies to fight it off as effectively as before. Although i imagine if you got your flu shot this year you probably in pretty good shape second. It makes it harder for the world health organization to recommend the right ingredients for the flu vaccine. For next year. I had always heard that it was like some crazy long process in that it took a year to make them and they had to start planning a year in advance but this article finally went into detail about how the flu vaccine is made so the. Who meets twice a year to recommend vaccine ingredients to countries in the northern and southern hemispheres. There's one meeting for each. Our winters take place at opposite times and actually the northern hemisphere meets later this month when that happens the. Who recommends what to put in the vaccine based on the data that they've collected from the flu samples from all around the world from that data. They pick out which fluids are causing the most trouble and that's why it will be tougher this year with fewer flu cases. There's also less data so they have to guess more than they usually would on which flows will be around this winter now. The reason that they have to start doing this now in so early that flu vaccines usually taken about six months to make however this new technology that we're using for covert vaccines could make a huge difference with flu vaccines in just the very near future. A lot of companies are already studying this since the marna can be switched out pretty quickly and they can adjust though probably be able to make flu vaccines in just a few weeks. Once they're able to focus on that instead of covid so that would be pretty interesting now. The doctors did emphasize that. We're not just done with the flu. It is still out there and people and maybe people just aren't getting tested because they're always at home but still that's one silver lining. I can't imagine like residents homes if we had both at the same time because they struggle with flu anyways man. We dodged able there. All right folks. that's gonna do it for me here today for the news. Just remember no show tomorrow back on wednesday and then back on friday. Then it'll be our new schedule. But if you want to leave some feedback about quickness daily. And what. I can do to improve. There is still that link to the form in the episode descriptions. You can fill out that google form and let me know what you think contributors to the show also have a direct line to me speaking of which. Let's thank those contributors. We have our producer. Cathy and executive producer. Gwen and we thank you so much as always supporting the show and actually on the steady and patriot websites. Which is what. I'm still going through just for the time. Being unless there are special circumstances. I did cut it down from three tiers to two tiers. So for a dollar you get some things including a shout at the end of monday shows and then for five dollars you get some other things so go check out those new tears and maybe consider signing up teacher name on the show if you want. Those links are in the description as well otherwise stay safe out there stay home if he can get vaccinated as soon as he can. And i'll see you right back here on wednesday. Today is wednesday february tenth. And thanks for joining me back here for our second edition of the week. I honestly feel getting in more of a groove with these. Every other day shows like i feel like i can just make better ones and i feel like i actually have something to talk about some really hoping that you feel the same. Speaking of which today we've got cyberattacks impeachment the coup in myanmar why. I'm proud to be an american today. And co vaccine information mostly to calm some fears about that astrazeneca trial news from south africa. So let's get right into it. This is the type of story that keeps our national security agencies up at night. Cyberattacks the first major one of its kind happened on monday in florida when hackers broke the computer system for a water treatment facility when they got in they tried to change the settings so that the amount of sodium hydroxide the added to the water was eleven thousand parts per million at normal levels supposed to be one hundred parts per million so they would have increased it over a hundred times safe levels but fun fact for why we need sodium hydroxide. It's actually used in the wandered to control the acidity of water to make sure we're not drinking. Just pure acid. You can imagine. Florida swamp water. No offense florida so the way the sheriff tells it the. It employees for this city was just working as usual on his computer. When this pop up window comes up and then said. His computer was being accessed now. Obviously that shouldn't be happening. The sheriff then said quote the next thing you know someone is dragging the mouse clicking around and opening programs and manipulating the system. I'm not sure what's worse honestly to be able to see this happening. Or having some militia software just running in the background. I guess i'd say software running in the background because you just don't know it's there but still however the sheriff did mention that the water treatment facility had other controls in place that would have prevented a dangerous amount of this additive from the water supply unnoticed. So it's good that they had multiple levels of controls now. They don't know who did it yet. But the fbi and the secret service for some reason have been called in to help with the investigation. That's a good thing because this happened in a town of fifteen thousand people no offense to the it guys there. Because i'm an it guy so we will look out for each other but come on. Are they really gonna have the resources to track these hackers down probably not honestly. Everybody worries about their phones getting hacked. Or what if north korea fires new cannabis but really we have to worry about people hacking our power grids or other important utilities like water. Just like these hackers actually did because things can get like the walking dead real quick if we don't have water or power so honestly i didn't wanna put this impeachment story this high in the rotation of the new stories because he is former president trump. So i don't wanna give him too much time because he's just he's gone but at the same time we have to remember. Just how unusual this was. This was the first time in america's history that we did not have a peaceful transfer of power granted. The states did start seceding once they found out that abraham lincoln was going to be president but even they accepted that he was going to be. President accepted the results so going back earlier in the week when this all started only six. Republican senators voted to say that this impeachment trial was actually constitutional in the first place. These senators were susan collins from maine. Bill cassidy from louisiana lisa. Murkowski of alaska. Mitt romney of utah ben sasse of nebraska and pat toomey of pennsylvania. Someone made a really good point about this on tv. Which is you hope that the senators who voted that this wasn't constitutional. Don't just check out in automatically vote to acquit him. Because it's like in real court if there's a case there's a motion to dismiss and the judge doesn't grant that motion you still have to show up for the trial and being the jury it doesn't mean it's just wrong or that. It doesn't matter you still have to show up in judge but as usual. I'm not really holding my breath on that one when the trial actually started. The democrat started with his graphic video of the insurrection. Actually taking place just remind everyone what actually happened the fact that trump was urging it on. And how scared. Some of these people must have felt. Even trump east of trumpers definitely felt some fear on that day when people were rushing in in. the police had no plan the chair of the impeachment. The house impeachment managers representative jamie raskin even told the story about how he brought his whole family to the capital on the day of the riott just to witness history and then to have them scared for their lives hiding in an office then today early on at least from what i've been watching it's been dominated by raskin representative joe new goose. Not sure if. I'm saying that right but i haven't heard of them before today. But truthfully i think he has the chance to be a rising star. Let's hear the first clip of him. Making the case against trump. Five people lost their lives on that terrible tragic day. A woman was shot dead fifty feet from where we later. Certified the election results and for those who question. Just how bad. it was. Criminal complaints recently unsealed by the department of justice are more than revealing. You'll see one of these documents on the screen. In the charging affidavit of one of the leaders of the proud boys we learned that members of this group said quote. They would have killed. Mike pence if given the chance in another we learned of a tweet in real time while they were in the building stating we broke into the capital. We got inside. We did our part. We're looking for nancy pelosi to shooter in the frickin brain. But we didn't find her and for anyone who suggests otherwise these defendants themselves have told you exactly why they were here. You'll see this in the trial that in the halls of the capitol on social media in news interviews and in charging documents. They confirm they were following. The president's orders play another a little bit longer clip at the end. Just because i don't wanna take up too much of your time at the moment. But man i if he's a former lawyer or a former preacher or something but he has fantastic timing and delivery. I'm super jealous by the way representative. New goose said that this trial and conviction is necessary because quote if congress stands by it would invite future presidency. Use their power without any fear of accountability which is true. Raskin said something along the lines of if you quit him now you basically say that the president can do whatever he wants the last couple of weeks in office but if you think that was the end of it for the trial think again. Because here comes donald. Trump's lawyer bruce castor. Let's check in with him. When i was growing up in suburban philadelphia my parents were big. Fans of senator everett dirksen from illinois and senator dirksen recorded a series of lectures that my parents had on record and we still what records are right on the thing. You put the needle down on and play. And here's little bruce. Eight nine ten years old listening to this back in the late sixties. And i would be listening to that voice if you've ever heard ever dirksen voice sits the most commanding gravelly voice that just just oozes belief insincerity must have been a phenomenal united states. Senator he doesn't. He doesn't talk about ordinary people as we doing the law. We apply the ordinary person standard. He talks about extraordinary people. He talks about gallant men name of the the of the album. And now of course sign of the times gallant. Men and women yes. His entire opening statement did go like that. it didn't change. Can you tell that this guy probably thinks that he isn't going to get paid in fairness. I actually did see one person on twitter. A former candidate for house seat in ohio. Say that this was part of a strategy. Maybe that's giving them too much credit. But essentially she argued that he was trying to make people bored and or confused mission accomplished so that they'd turn the channel and forget about this whole thing that this was just a distraction technique that was meant to draw attention away from that video however let's hear what donald trump himself thought of his defense team. According to cnn's kaitlan collins not that was a strong opening argument and then to have the first attorney admit that he believes the house impeachment manager did a good job also was confusing to a lot of people on the president's t. but yes trump was not happy with that performance. He was borderline screaming over. What was going on as he was talking to people about this whatever the case may be strategy or now they certainly have an uphill battle ahead of them just based on what. The democrats are presenting so far today and even if you think that the outcome is certain that republicans aren't gonna vote to convict him. Every piece of evidence makes that vote even more painful for them. It makes it more costly politically like in the face of all this evidence. You still didn't do the right thing. At some point. People are not blind. And that's why. Joe biden one switching over to the coup in myanmar buddhist monks priests nuns and even a couple in wedding dress were there with thousands of other protesters on the streets of myanmar on tuesday. They're still protesting that military coup. That took place last week. This was the fourth day of protests and the police are starting to get agitated started using water cannons and allegedly air quotes rubber bullets against the crowd in that was according to reuters reporters. One witness also reported that they fired their guns into the air to try to scare them off. The un released. A statement that said quote numerous demonstrators have been injured some of them seriously by security forces in connection with the current protests. End quote as a lot of us are more familiar with now after what happened this last summer. The government is imposing curfew bans on gatherings of five or more people to try to slow down these protests. It sounds like nobody's quite sure what's going to happen to their government. At this point the people did partially the military out of power back in twenty eleven and these are the biggest protests since that time. But it's really hard to go against an entire country's military. I'm hoping for the best for those people but it really is a scary time over their boy. This is just a really proud moment for me. It's making me feel all sorts of patriotic. Just listen to this headline album sales surge for morgan. Wallin racist comment. That's the headline only in america. Folks only in america billboard reports that his latest album sold twenty five thousand copies during the week ending last week which was an increase of one hundred and two percent they also reported that the album streaming numbers slightly increased by three percent which is equivalent to about one hundred and sixty million on demand streams song downloads from the album. Also went up by sixty seven percent. Billboards editorial director. Hannah carp said that quote his fans are likely streaming him more because they can't hear him on the radio anymore some fans may be streaming him more in addition to show their support for him which is something that super fans and fan army's operation do and quote carp also said that general album sales and downloads are much smaller than streaming numbers for all artists. So it doesn't take much to cause. A large percentage jump in sales because in a really simple example. If you have to download and you get another one you just got an increase of fifty percent. So i get where she's coming from but still this just seems it just seems to american. This song is sarcasm by the way role. Forget who threw me. And i so for our last story today. The biden administration announced that it will be shipping corona virus shots to community health centers. Next week this is because initial data is showing that black and hispanic people are getting vaccinated at much lower rates than white people. Somewhere around a million doses. It can be going to these community health centers about two hundred and fifty of them just in this first phase. They say that they'll eventually be able to accommodate the fourteen hundred health centers across the country. Who want to participate the first round of centers that will be getting it are those who serve more than two thousand patients who are sixty five or older as well as facilities with a large number of patients who are agricultural migrant workers residents of public housing or are experiencing homelessness in a given year these fourteen hundred health centers combined to serve about thirty million patients per year and they're usually medically underserved people and can be central primary hubs for rural areas especially also just in general news. The federal government is increasing the number of vaccine doses sent to the states by five percent which will bring it up to eleven million doses per week in speaking vaccines. Here's the scary headline. That i was talking about with the astra zeneca covid vaccine the buzz around that a couple of days ago was that the new study came out and it showed that their vaccine is ten percent effective at preventing mild or moderate cases from the new south african strain of covid. Now that's bad news when you just hear that but let me tell you why are so many problems with this study first of all. The sample size was ridiculously small. Yes it was two thousand people who either got the vaccine or a placebo shot but out of that two thousand only forty actually came into contact with the new south african variant. This means that the sample size that we're looking for or looking at is only forty people not two thousand. They also messed up by having the volunteers be mostly young healthy people. The doctors are saying that what they're looking for most from these vaccines is if they prevent severe cases in death the stuff that jams at the hospitals since these were young and healthy people who aren't in the danger zone for covid we can't even tell how effective it is for that however in response to this the south african government announced that they're gonna suspend the use of this vaccine while they recalibrate one option that they have is to use this vaccine for low risk populations like young people or they could just wait until astra zeneca adjust their vaccine to be more effective against this particular variant. So when it comes down to it. I am a bit concerned about this news. But the study was so flawed. I don't know why they thought it was a good idea to run this. It's also super weird timing because just last week people were all up in arms. There are a bunch of headlines here in the states asking. Why isn't this thing approved in the us yet. It's all over the world except here well as it turns out. Thank goodness maybe the fda knows what they're talking about already folks. That's gonna do it for the news here today. No announcements on mayan just yet so just follow me on social media equity news daily and or leave us a good rating on apple. Podcasts pod chaser her anywhere else. He can leave a review. It really does help. Get the show out there all right. Stay safe out. there folks. Stay home if he can get vaccinated if he can. And i'll see you back here on friday here today. Do not want to see our election. Victory stolen has ever been thing like this. So pure theft in american history. Everybody knows it make no mistake. This election was stolen from you from me and from the country now of course each of you heard those words before so head to crowd. The president had spent months telling his supporters that the election had been stolen stolen and he used this speech to incite them further to inflame them to stop the steel to stop the certification of the election results. We will never give up. We will never concede it doesn't happen. You don't consume step and to use a favorite term. That people really came up with. We will stop this deal. We must stop the steel. Finally the president used this speech as a call to arms. It was not rhetorical. Some of his supporters had been primed for this over many months. As you'll learn days before this speech sleep manager raskin noted there were vast reports across all major media outlets that thousands of people would be armed that they'd be violent you'll learn that capitol police and the fbi reported in the days leading up to the attack that thousands in the crowd would be targeting to capitol specifically that they had arrested people with guns the night before the attack on weapons charges. And this is our commander in chief said to the crowd in the face of those warnings right before they came here we will not let them. Silence your voices. We're not gonna let it happen.

You could put down quick news daily so they know who sent you all right. Let's get on with the show. Today is friday february twelfth. And welcome back. I hate to sound like a broken record but the most important topics for our everyday lives are pretty much the same these days we have news on cove about vaccines in double masking. We've got news on some executive orders from president. Joe biden plus some more updates on impeachment in any case. Let's get right into it starting off the show. I want to bring a new study of the co vaccines to your attention. I'm not sure how this one compares to the south african study in terms of how accurate it could be. But it was led by william james a professor of virology at the university of oxford. I to warn you right away that like most other studies about covert these days in since the beginning. This one hasn't yet been peer reviewed but onto the study. His team took blood samples from people who had recovered from covid had been vaccinated with the pfizer vaccine they also broke it down by whether the vaccinated volunteers had received one or two doses. They then tested this blood against one of the first variant from a year ago the south african variant and the uk variant which this article from the guardian so it's from the uk it calls it the kent variant so i guess they like to blame specific areas over there like. Hey don't go generalizing us. It's can't kept the problem in terms of antibodies. The blood had moderate protection against the original variant slightly less protection against the uk version. And then no ability to neutralize the south african variant. That said when it comes to your immune cells that fight off infection once you get it. People who either had covert originally or those who got one does all had strong immune cell responses. The experts are definitely encouraged about this. Because they think that it means our immune cells are protecting against different regions of that all important spike protein if they protect against more areas of that than we could be protected against other variants. That might show up in the future now. The news gets even better for people who had second doses professor. James said quote in more than ninety percent of cases the antibodies that people are generating after the second dose are up at the level that neutralizes the virus in which we would expect to protect them from infection. We're pretty confident that they'll be protected from infection by the south african strain in the can't strain as well as the original strain of the virus and quote since the pfizer moderna. Vaccines are very very similar. It seems that if he got either of those vaccines you should probably be in the clear at least for preventing severe disease. But man. If you get both doses. You might be in the clear. That's amazing i'm actually super jealous event so completely unrelated to the results of the study. I just have to say about the article in general. I have to tell you how much it bothers me that again since it's from the uk. This article kept calling vaccines jabs instead of shots. I know what's just because we've known as shots our entire lives. Maybe even just me but jabs just grosses me out. It creeps me out. I don't know what it is but it jams. So finally we have some data about whether double masking helps. Prevent you from getting covid. This data is actually coming from the. Cdc which is even more encouraging. They found that by either wearing cloth mask over a surgical mask or just a surgical mask with the ear. Loops nodded insides tucked into get closer fit. You can reduce your exposure to airborne particles by over ninety percent in their experiments. They found that just by themselves. A surgical mask blocked forty two percent particles if an infected person coughs while cloth mask blocked forty four percent however when their combined they blocked ninety two percent of particles when it comes to regular breathing. And you're around someone without a mask. Your exposure decreased by sixty five percent. When you do the nodding technique in eighty three percent of you tumble mask. This goes up over ninety five percent if both people are double massing or doing the nodding technique they also say that the test that your mask is filtering correctly or double. I guess in this case you should practice wearing them in front of a mirror if you mere fogs up from your breath. It's working if you feel it on your eyes or your glasses steam up. It's not working. I don't know why it sounded counter. Intuitive to me but you'd really rather have it go out the front. Which is how it gets filtered. If it's coming the top it means the masks are actually blocking the air completely and it has to escape somewhere so it starts going out the sides or the top and then those are just straight up holes with no filtering so there are options but it looks like more is better flipping over to impeachment. I have to give another shout and thank you to capitol police officer and now acting deputy serjeant at arms eugene goodman on wednesday after i already recorded the show. Of course that's how it goes. I guess the democratic impeachment managers played another never before seen video. It was from that january sixth insurrection and this time it shows security footage of mitt romney. Heading down a corridor straight for the mob. Obviously not knowing that he was going the wrong way then right before turns the corner officer. Goodman comes sprinting. In out of nowhere to point them in the opposite direction and lead them to safety with how outspoken he's been of donald trump. It's not hard to imagine that the mob might have hurt mitt romney pretty badly when he was questioned by reporters during a break. Romney even admitted that he didn't know how close come to the mob inside quote. I did not know that was officer goodman. I look forward to thanking him. When i next see him. They were then spotted chatting during a break later in the day in. Romney said use that time to thank him. Matt romney mitt son. So i guess they have a bit of a sense of humor was really gracious towards officer goodman tweeting quote. We appreciate your bravery in service officer. Eugene goodman two exclamation points end quote and this was with a super cool action photo of goodman pointing around the in the other direction. I mean literally. This officer was like a one man team of avengers. He was everywhere that day. Somehow between saving mitt romney and leading the mob away from the defenseless senators. Who were still in. The senate chamber. Eugene goodman almost single handedly prevented the mass murder of a huge portion of our government. One of the things that hit me the hardest is actually the cover for this episode which you can see best on spotify. Which is that sergeant. Goodman was just standing there in the back of the senate chamber the other day while this new video played now he played it cool but i wonder if he was grinning under his mask thinking. Yeah that was me pretty amazing I mean i know. I would have in terms of the actual trial. The prosecution wrapped up their case yesterday. So trump's team took over today to give you a sense of what it's been like. I'll start with this. If trump's team was arguing about that song they'd say that. Because the beastie boys said you have to fight for your right to party that means either. Your parents have to let you party or you have to kill your parents. Literally their main evidence for today was a super long video compiles of clips of all these democrats saying fight or something along those lines just totally onto context. Who's like the usual suspects. Polisi elizabeth warren was in there somehow. Chuck schumer it's like. Has anyone ever gotten excited for chuck schumer rally much less incensed and then after they play these clips they show clips of the protests to the riots from this past summer which is just a stupid straw man. What aboutism argument that. If the democrats want to convict trumper saying fight like hell than all of these democrats should be convicted to just for saying these statements completely out of context. It's just a super dumb argument because they don't have any other defense honestly. Do not waste a single second watching the actual presentation from trump's team like i know that's not what the news is supposed to tell you to do but just way for me to talk about it or listen to the news tonight when they play the highlights. Something like that but honestly please do not waste any of your time your precious time on this earth listening to that garbage president biden made some more news with executive orders recently. So i wanna go over two of those right now. The first one is something. I haven't even heard about but he announced an executive order directing a government wide supply chain review for critical goods in the coming weeks with chip shortage a central concern behind the probe also with the priority of quote identifying choke points in supply chains and quote. Apparently these semiconductor chips are hard to come by these days which is hurting the auto industry and the video gaming industry some possible solutions that executives from the companies that make these chips companies like intel and qualcomm have suggested that they create tax incentives and initiatives to helping more chip manufacturers. Back to the us. Nothing is final yet. But covert has taught us one thing is that we can't necessarily rely on foreign manufacturing all the time we have to make sure we can still kind of sustain ourselves but i'd also be hesitant to listen to the executives from these companies. Just looking for tax handout. You've got enough chief. The other executive order was one that he actually signed which i've mentioned before biden officially rescinded. Trump's national emergency declaration about the. us. Mexico border yes. That's right folks. No more taxpayer dollars are going to be used to fund the wall. I mean mexico was supposed to pay for it but who's counting anyway right so we have to end. Friday with a shocker of a story which is one that actually makes bill barr look good question mark so the new york times first reported that actually in the days after he killed george floyd officer derek. Chauvin actually agreed to plead guilty to third degree murder. But then william bar stepped in and then rejected the deal. Apparently these local people were just really wanting to end the community anger around this death so they tried to make something happen fast. They had even scheduled a news conference to announce the deal however sources say that bar said it was too early in the investigation and it would also be perceived as too lenient and this was confirmed by three separate law enforcement officials. It's just confusing. Because william bar didn't really care about his perception in any other case so especially if it came to letting white dude off easy for killing a black guy you think that he would have taken that opportunity very strange indeed but i also think it's telling that that their degree murder charge would have meant that chauvin would have gone to prison for over ten years. He was agreeing to then meaning. He knew that he royal. He royally screwed up. All right. that's gonna do it for the news portion today but hey some exciting news. Quick news daily has joined the social media platform. Vero bureau is a newer after actually learn about from director. Zack snyder after used it to those two livestream commentaries. For let's see batman. V superman and man of steel. It's supposed to be the anti facebook anti instagram. It shows you exactly how much time you spend on the app there. No ads no algorithms in. There aren't any notifications. They are designed to keep you scrolling. You can even sort people into friends who you actually know acquaintances. And then just regular followers plus post can be pictures. A link music movies or tv shows. Apps games or places is just super cool. I would just suggest downloading it soon because eventually there will probably be a subscription fee. Because they don't take as they have to take something to keep sustaining but yeah not even sponsored by it. I just thought it was more ethical than facebook. Which is always what i'm looking for. Also since it's so new. I figured i had a good chance of establishing quick news daily as maybe like a major player on their the usual media. People like cnn the new york times etc. They aren't even there yet. So go check out the link to my quick news. Daily account is in the episode description. I guess while. I'm on my soapbox giving out free ad space to people as we'll tell you about a search engine i found called e. kolja e c o s a echo dot org companies paid advertise on kolja. And then when you search girl past ads echo. She gets money they then use those profits to plant trees all over the world. They partnered with local groups. Who actually do most of the planting most of the work even check. How many trees responsible for planting and for example on my laptop. I'm at one hundred. Forty six trees. Honestly even if you know what you're looking for is on wikipedia or is just like the url is really long. Just search for donnie kosheh. Help plan to tree. And if you can't quite find what you're looking for any kosheh it does give you the option to go search on google with that same term. You can find all that information and more about how it works if you still have questions and echo dot org. That link is also in the episode description. All right. thanks so much for joining me.

"Picture this nineteen twenty seven chicago a black female blues singer. My rainy is well ahead of her time. And has no problem going toe to toe with music executives to get. What's owed to her in the new netflix movie. My rains black bottom. Viola davis portrayal. Rainy is incredible. The movie truly showcases the power of the american dream in a time when women especially black women were not respected watch. How pave the way for artists today. Checkout ma rainey's black bottom in select selectors now and on. Netflix december eighteenth. This film is rated on what i was just talking about last hour. I want this to become a thing in the future. Where you hire a consultant. Who somehow make sure you get all the information you want about various things in none of the crap. You don't want a good for instance. I have seen three times today. That tom brady and giselle are moving to florida. They are. I need to live in a world where that doesn't get to me at all. I don't know that. I need that filtered out and i'm sure there's something else in the news that i would like to know that i have not seen tried to curated news services and i just. They're not good. I number one. I don't wanna be siloed. Only get information. I agree with what happens all hardcore political stuff. All sports earn now. Yeah yeah and. I've tried various services and they're just the problem is there are two problems number one. If you click on a college football story you'll get five hundred college football stories a day for the next six months. Yeah yeah i would think the algorithms could get to the place especially over years. You can figure out what i'm interested in. He likes sports a very little bit. If it rises to this level he wants to know about it. But below daddy doesn't He has very little interested in celebrity news except for in this world and it would figure that out right now. It seems like it's all designed the way. Ads are and what you complain about all the time. Which is hilarious. That if you. If i shop for a barbecue grill i get whole barbecue. Grill ads for the next year is if i'm just gonna buy one every day going to have twelve of back maybe even a better example would be like a washing machine. Just you make you know. Once every eight years. I gotta washing machine. Stop giving me ads for. But that's the way they treat you with news and my second complaint about it is a staunchly independent conservative The news is so skewed to the left. I mean i cannot get past the heaps of liberalism that come in my various news feeds. And i know to find it. I don't need to be pointed toward the new york. Times for instance. Although i have some really good stuff coming up from the new york that interesting anyway and speaking of a left leaning publications the new yorker outing dianne. Feinstein is too old the doer job. Hough tuned for that. And i got to. The governor of north carolina flipped off eight year old and bragged about it. Stay with us I found this piece really good. And it's you know speaking of drinking from a fire. Hose information wise. It's from the websites. Low boring does com now. Matthew yglesias whose work. I've known other places is writing for him. I guess he's just an independent journalists these days but he really dives deep into all the girls i've loved before different guy running lacey's a different fella but he's doing a deep dive into the terrible missteps the government and the media early on about masks and it's incredibly thorough one of the points. He makes it. He starts with this opinion piece in the new york. Times elizabeth rosenthal january twenty eighth. Tell people wash your hands instead of worrying about masks and then in the fifth paragraph though she points out now are some situations where masks are probably a good idea if you have a respiratory infection or somebody's coughing. Sneezing is probably a good idea. And then is it. Bogart's from the university of toronto dismissed masking is overly alarmist right at the end of january but in the same interview conceded that if someone has a respiratory infection masks are helpful it stopping spread. And then the cdc study that went around that you heard about concluding that masks are ineffective for controlling seasonal respiratory disease. But if you read what it says in detail. It's because household use of face masks is a blah blah blah. It's kind of. It's a bad sentence but what they're saying people don't use them at home and people give each other colds at home But that's got nothing to do with me going into the convenience store right right exactly. And so on that level it's a great illustration of how you get the most incredibly grossly over simplified version of the news through the mainstream media. And you don't even get all a paragraph one much less paragraph five. You're never going to hear that. Headlines are often misleading to the point to being the opposite of what the stories about. That happens all the time. Right right or they're caveats are exceptions to the story that you fall squarely into and if you read the second for grammar were told it you would know that right away. But then he gets into the the terrible terrible late february surgeon. General blurting out that masks are simultaneously ineffective but also very necessary for healthcare providers. Dr fauci louis later told norah o'donnell that surgeon general adams concerned about shortages was driving the train. The whole time as i have been speculating quote. We were told in our task force meetings that we have a serious problem with lack of ps and masks for the health providers or putting themselves in harm's way every day to take care of sick people and as you have said jack they did not trust americans with that incredibly complex and subtle truth. That look masks or good but please save them for the doctors and nurses right now. Yeah that was That's terrible that's the worst kind of Leadership mass don't work actually work. We're just telling them because we're afraid we'll run out. We'll tell them they do. How do you think that's going to play out eugeniusz. And then and again. This is some really good writing in a website had never heard in my life. He goes into hygiene theater. California for some reason kept plumbers closed until late. September yellow tape around all the playground equipment. Yeah and he also makes the point. That i've heard in a couple of places now and it just again. It goes to the poor quality of our leadership. How much have you heard about ventilation air purifiers. Why doesn't every home in america have a fifty dollar air purifier. Why are we not hammering. That for restaurants i mean. We've made them spend tens of thousands of dollars in shut them down anyway then. Filtration is a huge factor in the spread of respiratory illness. But nobody's talking about it. It's just a little frustrating. Yeah i mean. It shouldn't be that hard. I swear every governor every president needs to have a director of common sense just some guy or gal or maybe a panel of them people who work for living that raising or have raised kids. Maybe they volunteered day coach sports or whatever this just you gotta have a common sense panel because the level of dumb stuff that gets through his really astonishing. Look at google's year in search. So it's kind of interesting to find out what people were searching on. Google google so omnipresent. Maybe it's a monopoly. I don't know Musicians and bands the most searched on google. I don't think i ever searched shakira but that was number one followed by. What did she do. Pogo followed by austin. The image tabs fog by august. Alsina which i'd never even heard of. That's how out of touch. I am with musicians and bands on google adele. The third most search then doja cat then halen made six because Eddie dine i suppose Lizardo go yeah. I don't want those image tab. cuando rondo it. Rhymes mentioned the most searched Tv shows started with tiger king and followed by cobra. Cobra kai that facts in with Everybody i know all into those shows at some point. Hey sean what's what's the general feel of cobra kai is it adventure to the neck. It's it's all crane kicks all the time. Now it's general feel it is a somewhat tongue in cheek. Lighthearted look at the universe of karate kid thirty years later it has. It's very simple not complicated. It's not a darker. Look at any it's gonna take on. Yeah yeah it's a draw macho. Was ralph maccioni it. Billy's abc was the i was looking for an elevator pitch love. I love the show. It's it's hilarious and all the great ways in an not because it tries to be the number one search actor on google. Not surprising tom hanks because he was the first big celebrity. Get the kobe. And everybody's like oh my god tom. Hanks says the covert and they searched it right. Then chris ilya who i don't know He was a stand up comedian. Who had a little bit of a cancelled problem. that was. Oh that reminds you got an email from an alert listener that The one of the guys in the band twenty one pilots. Well isn't it now. My kids are so into them. Well he's being crucified right now. Because social justice warriors trapped him into not properly supporting black lives matter or something like that that he should be using his platform to press for justice and he was getting so many of those messages. He put on a pair of platform shoes and said here. I am using my platforms. These things off and for that he is being crucified online and has had to get on his knees and issue a hostage. Video apology for for not conforming did he. Yeah he did. He did the the guys that devote chris- devout christian he said it'd be a really nice fellow You know he's got a lot of the problems. That musicians have shies awkward. He's got depression. Whatever but yeah. He is being murdered and forced to his knees by the woke crowd right now for again. His crime was silence because silence is violence so evidently any bass player from any banned any actor and he businessperson he business. If they call you out and say you're not doing enough. You better get on your knees right away. They docs him and his kids kids. Were getting threats. I'm gonna listen to twenty one pilots on the way home just to put some money in his pocket. Maybe my taste in music is your face loved that song. I never heard dianne feinstein too old to do her job. Well new yorker says maybe we ought to take a look at that and we got a pharmacist who says he's been filling out. Alzheimer's prescriptions for members of congress. For years. wow. That would be a story. Wow among other things on the way Sometimes you got bleed the even have a song. It's like someone four beleaguered twenty one pilots as the crowd. This come after him. Dad really is crazy. Hey here's my favorite part taste in. Music is your wrote that means. What does that mean is your face. So you the think strategically people any effort to bring down. Senator dianne feinstein of california if you lean right is a bad idea because she will be replaced by somebody way to the left of her. I absolutely agree. I guarantee you. that's true But we probably should have people that are not completely out of it. at high levels in government. And she is the co chair of the senate judiciary committee as you know from having just gone through Supreme court appoint a month confirmation hearing jane mayer of the new yorker is out with a story that will make for some uncomfortable reading for supporters of dianne feinstein who is eighty seven years old. Wow pretty well for an eighty seven year old. The story asserts that feinstein's memory and overall cognitive ability of dropped sharply the issue came to the forefront last month when feinstein as the ranking democrat on the judiciary committee. Ask a sharp question of twitter's jack dorsey in a hearing. The problem is that after answered. She immediately asked the exact same question again seemingly registering no awareness that she was repeating yourself verbatim. Oh boy mayor also writes again. This is in the new yorker. This is not fox news right mayor also you know what the new yorker probably would anybody leans left probably wants her out because she will be replaced by someone to the left of her. Yes i think you're onto it. She's your their puppet. She's a conservative by today's standards. Mayor also writes that. Staffers have been struggling. Debris feinstein on various issues because she sometimes forgets. She's been briefed in one of the more troubling anecdotes. Mayor writes that democratic leader chuck schumer has had multiple serious and painful talks with feinstein about relinquishing her leadership. Spot on the panel. But diane kept forgetting that they'd had the talks and schumer had to keep re issue re raising the issue rights mayor. Wow who's like groundhog day. But with the pain. Fresh each time the source cells mayor. Oh my god. The story is making me sad. The insider likens at having to talk with an elderly relative about giving up the car keys. But this time it wasn't just about a car was about the. Us senate feinstein has since agreed to upper leadership. Post in the committee I had her day. no. I haven't heard that either or is that true. I had not heard that story so i'll do some digging so sh- schumer went to her and said diana. I think i think maybe we need to take a look at where we are mentally and then she forgets. That had the conversation has to come back and have it again. Oh that'd be rough you re you'd realize you're into a completely different thing here. You have the conversation with you. Know grandad or whatever about whether you gotta be driving or not and then when you bring it up again you realize they don't remember talking about it the first time right yeah. Evidently yeah late november. She said she will not seek her same role in the next congress okay. I hadn't heard that. Yeah she did not say why but said she would instead focus on wildfire and drought issues and the effects of climate change. Will she remember that she stepped down and not just show up and say somebody might chair. Boy that'd be uncomfortable and this story which is from a couple years ago but sean had heard it in dug it back up a pharmacy to says. He has filled. Alzheimer's prescriptions for members of congress. The story which can read here. I can't click on this. Try includes an alarming passage in which the pharmacist casually mentioned that. Some members apparently have alzheimer's mike kim. The pharmacist turned owner of the pharmacy. There in dc said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in washington. I'm sure that's true at first at school. Then you realize. I'm filling some drugs for people that are have some pretty serious health problems With raising their prices on prescription drugs listening treatments for conditions like diabetes. I don't care. If you have diabetes and alzheimer's i do care if you have that. Yeah yeah by the way we have among the oldest congress's we've ever had. We talked about the graph the other day where you not only have a gazillion baby boomers but a chunk of the the secret generation or the silent generation. Or whatever i mean that's to generate up won't be so secrets and back talkies like rolling prewar to. Yeah no kidding. I remember it was blackmail will information if you had Depression medicine in your cabinet. Or heck yeah anxiety or ever seen a therapist right could not be elected so crazy. It's a different time isn't it. yeah i wonder. What percentage of the congress people senators are are on either alzheimer's or depression. I'm trying to think if there's anything else on the list. I mean orlando couch. Telling the therapist dayton chinese spine. I don't know if. I should cut it off right right. It's best to bring these things out. Yeah you want doesn't matter. I mean if somebody suffers from depression and they might be perfectly fine legislation. You never had it all right. So i mean if they were taking antipsychotic medicine. I think we should note that. Yeah or if you're a Necrophiliac japan we got. Gotta go home and take my meds. So i don't you know sets up the dead now. On addition soon as beds out late the day i just i can barely stop from turning to a funeral too far too far too far too far at that out.

What is oh man. I'm going to you. Bob own from better call saul and prior to that. Almost all comedy roles as entire life. Sure he's made the transition from comedy to like comedy drama and now full on ass kickin drama full on like charles bronson death wish the seventies yes but the trailers fantastic and you know acting funny thing because i i couldn't picture him in that thing till i watched the trailer and then it seems perfectly believable and realize if it was the other way around if he'd always been doing this and they announced he was going to do a comedy. I'd say oh. Bob odenkirk gonna comedy. Uh that'll work. Yeah actors act like anything is the thing the thing that got some the thing that really kind of cleansed my mind from that was when i failed to give breaking bad in early shot because i was like. Oh you mean. Malcolm's dan whatever and then it just blew my mind once. I started with kiefer sutherland. When i saw previews for twenty four one hundred and forty pounds. Yeah i could beat him up us. A great action hero. Yeah yeah let's it. Such a problem for actors. The holds the typecasting thing and i for myself sometimes which is stupid because like i hear an actor has a band and i'll think i well i used to think that. Oh yeah. it's really incredibly surprising that somebody who's an actor also is a musician that that's not the least surprising musician decides they want to act rate. Why that's just ridiculous. They're all drama kids in highschool. Both as was i. So they announced that the final approval of the vaccine last night. And we're going to start getting it like monday or tuesday. Even though i heard one i can't remember if it was an fda or cdc person saying it could be out in ours it's just like crossing t's dot nyse work was reporting. Listen get in a room and get that done on a weekend. Wide white and great britain. Get it days ago. Whited candidate start getting yesterday. I feel like we've just got this giant government. I've gotta justify my position by agency crap paperwork that we're going through that you all we've all dealt with whether you're buying a house or a car. Whatever stacks and stack of meaningless crap. That's got to be signed year. I've heard a number of people call for this and it might happen but if it does. It'll be ignored anyway. But a bipartisan post. Pandemic game review just break down the film just figure out where all the weaknesses were all of the The slow responses. Where were the bureaucratic bottlenecks. We we need to take a serious look at what we did and get ready for the next one but again. No bureaucrat in dc will give up turf nor budget nor power. And i you know i don't want i don't want to be cynical. I'm sure we can find and change some things but you know. I'm not not super optimistic. As jimmy kimmel said. I would let them give me the vaccine right in the i if i could go out to dinner tonight and it's not actually true. I don't care about eating out that much. But i you know. Get back to regular life about your kids. Being in school you know being in school to ensure but not everybody feels the same way latest polling on this estates frantically prepared to begin months. Vaccinations that could end this pandemic. A new poll finds only about half of americans are ready to roll up their sleeves when their turn comes. The associated press did a poll shows about a quarter of adults aren't sure if they want to get vaccinated against the virus. Roughly another quarter say. They won't so quarter said they won't quarter say they're not sure which is obviously have haw. Yeah many on the fence have safety concerns and wanna watch how the rollout fares and people are getting sick or their eyes are falling out or losing their toes turn blue or whatever side effects you could both weigh up it live with blue tos Say at least seventy percent of the. Us population needs to get vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. Not everybody agrees on that though. I that that crowd. That's not sure when they find out that their insurance company is not going to pay for their hospital. Stay if they don't get the shot then you're going to do it. Yeah i don't know how i feel about that. But that is what's likely to happen and man you'd be risking its average fifty eight thousand dollars. If you end up going to the hospital with this thing you'd be paying out of pocket right. You can't afford that. I can't afford that. Well yeah and i. I also think that will just be a certain amount of Heard not mentality. Just you see hundreds of thousands millions of other people get the thing in their perfectly fine when people figuring i'll go ahead uncertainty i think is at the heart of the people who aren't sure or even say no and you know the more people get it. The more people are find the most they'll have. I have no concerns now but experts have stressed that no corners were cut during development of the vaccine among those who don't want to get vaccinated though about three in ten said. They aren't concerned about getting seriously ill from the coronavirus and around a quarter said. The outbreak isn't as serious as some people say. So those are the two different views about seven and ten who said they won't get vaccinated. Are concerned about side. Effects is fallen out. Blue toes. That i was just mentioning. I don't think that's the thing But there's a decent chunk of the crowd that zante vacs everything right always. Yeah so those people obviously aren't going to get it. Well we can put them aside. We don't need them but it's the you know it's the general hesitant crowd that is going to cause a problem. It says here among americans who won't get vaccinated. The poll found forty. Three percent are concerned that the vaccine could give them the corona virus. Something that's scientifically impossible. It says here since the shots don't contain any virus. I thought that's kind of what happened when you got this. You got a little bit of the fluor. Now that's the difference between a standard vaccinations that have a little bit of dead virus in them. And this is the messenger. Rna sort that It just works differently. And i'm not sophisticated enough in science to be able to explain it well but it's different than the standard sort one of the most interesting things i've heard about this the What was his name. The general who's in charge distribution everything. No it wasn't it was It was the doctor whose name keeps escaping my mind Slavi or slow way or whatever his name is but he was explaining that and this is very new technology. They now have platform technology to develop vaccines he said. It's just like changing cassette in a cassette player. We take out the genetic code that we were using To develop a vaccine we just pop in this new genetic code and then it's like a machine that then turns out what we need to know for a vaccine and so going forward we ought to see vaccines pop up really quickly just like this time. Cool kind of cool. The way he explained awesome If you know why we're not getting it like today. As opposed to great britain and canada. I'd be interested or text. Line is four one. Five two nine five k. of dc. I think joe is right. I think once it comes out. And everybody's getting it. Nothing's happening it'll beat. Everybody will be getting it. I don't think it's gonna be a big deal and those of you who feel the need to write impassioned emails about this. Don't bother it's fine. Believe what you wanna believe. Jewelry trying to talk you into anything. Joe reads every one of those emails. I do and i answer them in prince them out and put them in file watches every video that you include with them. Yes no manners guys. This is really good. It's an hour and a half video. What people are trying to be helpful and appreciate absolutely times four hundred fifty per day. Yeah not that can happen. Oh hey there's there's more on the whole eric. Swale well honey trap thing that i've been reading about. We were talking about this earlier for a bit. About how china has many hundreds and probably many thousands of honey trap spies women and gay fellows who go out and ingratiate themselves with public officials. Defense contractors just anybody industrial people business people. I'm just together. Whatever intelligence they can just classic spice up with just everything so if you got a russian i mean aspera chinese nationalism girlfriend and you're fighting above your weight you're like wow don't know i'm a high pulled this off now. Know why she's a spy. Yeah so more of the how they do it why they do it What to look for where these people are generally and More crap on eric. Swallow just a despicable human being lying creep more examples of him carrying china's water in congress in the intelligence committee for some reasons. Real head scratcher. We'll have that for you next Guy back fans is a big day. Yesterday taylor swift announced and dropped the new album new album for taylor swift is a big deal for a lot of people and the new single from david hasselhoff. Not listening to right now. He's taken a metal term davis. This is stressing me out. All metal stresses me out. Don't get the appeal. And i realize for some people. It's relaxing rooms. Youngest who runs really really hot music like that kind of punk music mostly is what he likes but it somehow calms him down. Yeah i think it lets out the energy or matches the speed of your internal conversation. I don't know yeah. I don't know the stresses me out like you just said the woman What's her name I'm bad with actors. Because i really don't care about them about the gal from dead to me. Christina applegate she Her character listens to like really heavy. Heavy heavy metal to relax and it always. It makes me edgy. Listening to the show or watching the show is there is there is the heaviest version of heavy metal. Just jackhammer instruction just construction. Were the band to saw that sort of thing. You stop the hammer rain. Hey sean plenty. plenty clip number fifty four. Which eric swallow well carrying chinese water and congress. It is not view of the intelligence community that china and russia are equally acting in this election. And i can say open session. That is false. False for the american people to walk away and believe there's any equivalents between what russia and china are doing you lying creep. I remember the particular article that came out about that. That china has had has way more capabilities to screw with us than than russia does just got more money. They got more equipment. They're better at it but he was trying to claim that non. China come on my johnny's girlfriend. I mean someone i know. Maybe it's my chinese spy intern. I can't remember who told me. but anyway. So eric's wall well congressman from california. Had a chinese spy girlfriend for a while and let her plant one to another spy. On his staff is under increasing scrutiny. Republicans are calling for him to be tossed off the intelligence committee of all things Since he's been compromised by chinese spies. She planted one on his staff. What the heck unfortunate yes. I was totally unintended. Maybe you ought to get your mind out of the gutter Anyway so we were talking earlier about a big piece in the new york post which is so interesting and we'll posted at armstrong and getty dot com. If you want to read the whole thing yourself. Oh that's right. i'm supposed to that. We have a the. Nigel rotund tracks from ten years ago. Up at armstrong and getty dot com. That was ten years ago. We got a place that next hour. Yeah and i think we have the bob odenkirk trailer and the story convicted terrorist released due to covid risk. Because he's too fat. My mom called me yesterday. After watching. Nigel rotan videos and had all sorts of questions. Okay was just thoroughly entertained. By the whole we will get into that next hour eilly unfortunate but anyway the the new york post piece which is so good in quotes so many intelligence officials former intelligence officials. They're going into the fact that china has hundreds of thousands of spies of various sorts. In the united states academics. Many of them students Good old fashioned. Taking pictures of military installation spies but they also unquestionably have thousands of these honey traps. Spies red sparrow's if you want. Spice toots i just came up with that. What do you think that that's pretty good. Spice to toots awesome. Despise process by spice. The toots to think about it. It's funny that we don't all. This isn't common knowledge because they dig into the history of the thing and Say this is happening. Worldwide and according to bbc analysis rather than being run centrally. These operations tend to be run out of the provincial state. Security bureau each of which deals with different geographic reaches the world so shanghai example for example. Cover the us beijing. Russia and former soviet republics xianjin covers japan korea and so on spooks students sprouse spooks prostitutes books winner. I like it. That's the winner in early. Two thousand eleven french counter-intelligence officials issued a warning. The china had been deployed quote. Beautiful female spies a prostitutes. Yes to steal business secrets and blackmailers subjects. Such incidences included a chinese spy sleeping with the top french pharmaceutical researcher and videotaping the affair as fodder for blackmail. I'd love to know the other end of it. In china when they when they get these people i mean do you. Are you a member of the communist party. And you've sworn allegiance you'll do anything your country or do they just find hot chicks on the street and say here's what you're gonna do. Yeah yeah i have a feeling there are a fair number of attractive women who apply for intelligence service isn and if they say hey. We're gonna crush your mom under a pile of rocks if you don't do this. Pretty good with computers. Can i just do that. No now you gotta go sleep with midwestern mayors boy a year earlier. Britain's security agency five accused the chinese government directing honey trap plots to hack into corporate british computer networks. Am i five. hadn't twenty. Oh eight distributed a document entitled the threat. From chinese espionage to numerous security officials and executives banks and businesses boldly cautioning that and i quote chinese. Intelligence services have also been known to exploit vulnerabilities such as sexual relationships and illegal activities to pressurise individuals to cooperate with them. Oh boy when u s and other western officials make trips to china even more warnings are raised in particular. This security officials said there was a bevy of anxieties ahead of these september g. Twenty summit held in hangzhou in september. Twenty sixteen because hot chinese girls will will latch onto you. Oh you're from america. That's fascinating you know when i went to russia when i when i was in moscow a an attractive woman hit on me in the lobby of the hotel and i knew something was up but i never thought about it being a spy. Just thought you know they just think businessmen prostitution money but certainly could have been a spy. Yeah i mean they could have been about over head and take your stuff or it could have been a spy. It's hard to say. Let's see a officials working with the prime minister at the time were issued direct notifications by uk government security experts in advance of going to china. To avoid the lure of quote chinese spies offering sex dossier collated in the uk earlier. This year's reported detail. How honey traps have been used on bigwigs across the region in promoting the interests of wow way so they're semi cause remember. Everything is integrated in china through the communist party industry. Intelligence military your local Wet or whatever. So yeah they're using their spice to promote. Wow way but but swallow well. Who's still on the house intel committee and as access to all our best secrets He he knew she was a spy. He was told in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen. I think it was twenty fifteen on time ago and he's still ran for president. Yeah yeah so. He must not be that worried or you know a chinese agent. I don't suspect he is. I doubt that although he certainly could be a victim of quote unquote of something like this or maybe just maybe just back off and let people do their thing. See either going to get before you you pull the chain right. Yeah exactly yeah. Because they're just trying to ingratiate themselves with up and coming political stars but he could have fallen for something like this in twenty twenty sixteen. The newly appointed dutch ambassador to beijing fell for the classic ploy. The hot chinese spy girl despite his training insecurity and his cellphone got stolen. Secrets or siphoned off by is a female chinese spook. The homeboy prostate spook. 'wow fbi has declined to comment on the swallow swallow case but it is assumed by everybody. They talk to to be the tip of the iceberg quote. The chinese have a very ubiquitous presence. Here in the only way to prevent it is through education and awareness instead of saying no comments swale should be doing a public service announcement. Warning others to be vigilant. No kidding no kidding he should be. He should be doing a video. Saying this is what happens. This is what the look for. Yeah yeah he should be and the fact that he's not is well it makes you wonder makes you wonder it. Make me wonder he was sleeping with the had a sexual relationship and now he's opened the can keep that secret lying creep. Well having sex with a really hot asian girl was not like you know no and he wasn't married at the time but if he was dating who is now his wife at the time. Which i don't know if you are not that would certainly throw a wrench in your life. Armstrong and getty. There's a racial equity problem in america.

Bill O’Reilly’s No Spin News and Analysis

12:02 min | 1 year ago

No Spin News, February 5, 2020

"Welcome to the no spin news for Wednesday February fifth. Two Thousand Twenty five th the freedom so. This was one of the busiest days I've had the last three years. I I did the Sean Hannity Radio Program. That's worth listening to because we had impeached. We have state of the Union and we have the presidential race. You know all kinds of stuff going on and we've had a and I it's a pretty good dynamic live dawn and covered and a half an hour now for our purposes services here tonight. I'm going to deal with the failed impeachment but I I wanna I WANNA do the state of the union because is this was really interesting much more so than usual presidential speeches. I did talk president trump this morning because I had to clarify Rafael you things I gotTa tell you what I said or what he said. That's not what I do. But I wanted to get some clarification of bowed. Some of the things that he said. I'll give you an example as we roll along and he's feeling very very strong which there's good and bad you don't want to get over coughing but I think that he did himself a lot of good last night. It was dubbed speech. Donald Trump has ever given man. I've seen most of them and it's because he was very precise and he was very presidential authoritative. He used his position and he doesn't often do this at his rallies. He's more of an entertainer now. There were entertaining aspects of the speech last night but they had to do do with who we brought in and the way positioned the issues but he himself was very very disciplined speaker last night. Guy Named Stephen Miller Miller writes speeches but donald trump. You Know He. He's like Ronald Reagan. He goes in and he edits and put some things that he wants. Mr Miller is brilliant. I mean I. I don't even know very well. But boy the way he craft that speech that was an hour and twenty minutes. I wasn't board. Were you bored. During and that speech at all I mean they clicked long. So this is what happened. During the speech he basically gave you. who a litany of how? He's succeeded for you what he's done for the American people which you would expect to state of the Union as all all presidents do but at the same time he was saying. Hey Look at how good things are. He was diminishing his opposition. All right let me give you one vivid example rollet. The unemployment rate is the lowest in over half a century and very incredibly. The average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration nation in the history of our country if we hadn't and reverse the failed economic policies of the previous administration. The world would not now be witnessing this great economic. Mkx Success you see the jab the previous administration Democrats hate that because Barack Obama's revered now the Washington Post immediately says well well in one thousand nine hundred fifty three the unemployment rate was low. Okay that was sixty seven years ago and the population in the United States. This was in near what it is now so you can. There are many many more people in employment arena than they weren't making fifty three. You see what I mean it. Ah It never ends. It never ends but the the main point is that for every plus the Donald Trump told you he has accomplished he. He pointed out a minus on the democratic side. That is good speech writing. You are listening to a free excerpt from Bill O'Reilly Dot Com. No no spin news broadcasts where you can actually see me. We'll be right back after this message in a perfect world no one would ever find themselves in big credit card debt but it happens job layoffs medical emergencies car troubles and can be easy to get deeper into debt if you carry a high balance on your credit card month after month so why not do something about that. Get a free mortgage review from my friends at American financing thing and learn about refinancing that debt into your mortgage. You'll get a much lower interest rate and you'll only have one manageable monthly payment to focus on. It could mean a thousand dollars monthly savings for you. Maybe more best of all. You don't have to start your loan term over and that's that's GonNa save you a lot of money on interest so do yourself a favor. Give American financing call. It only takes ten minutes to start eight eight eight four six two nine nine five five seven. That's eight four six two nine five five seven or American financing dot net American financing. NMLS one one eight two three three four and L. S. consumer access dot Org impeachment. So Article One was abuse of power fifty not to not guilty fifty two senators not guilty. Forty eight guilty Mitt. Romney voted guilty. Okay that's the end of Mitt Romney in the Republican important. He's through now Mitt. Romney explained his vote by saying my conscience dictates that I have after do this. But that's not what his job is. His job is to represent the people of Utah. Not himself himself now. If Mitt Romney believes it was an abuse of power he needs to lay out specifically okay what that abuse of power is because if he just says well I think I feel or it's my opinion sat enough. My belief is is not enough to convict anybody of anything. A conviction must be based on facts. provable facts that's the beyond the reasonable doubt clause and if there were ever a reasonable doubt. It's in the Ukraine situation. I mean there's not a jury on in this country maybe in China with it's crazy all right it's an interpretation and Schiff Pelosi and now they took the interpretation that it was an abuse of power but they had no facts to back it up which is why I only Mitt Romney. All Republicans elected in Washington. Only him voted for abuse of power to remove the president again Mitt. Romney has lost all credibility he has no standing in the Republican Party. Donald trump junior call for him to be expelled. Oh that would be wrong. People use Tasha deal with them the second or obstruction of Congress. Romney voted not guilty. Fifty three forty seven. Now is notable that the senator from Alabama Jones. I believe his name is okay voted guilty on both counts. He's done if Alabama can put up a credible Republican. That seat is going to be lost to the Democrats arrest through Joe Manchin. I'm surprised mansion. Noses who's all bull but I guess Schumer threatened him and mansion fell into line on the senator from Arizona. Name escapes me at the moment That's going to hurt her. Because Fair minded people know this was bows but the Democrats fill until on the man who who was hurt most by impeachment and we won't even cover impeachment anymore.

Unlike any other I have witnessed from president. Donald Trump where the reality TV president took on the state of the Union. A master showman at his best was Norah O'Donnell who is now taking over the CBS Evening News. Donald Liberal woman woman known her for many years not crazy but she's she's a person of the left she had lunch with Donald Trump yesterday and she's had an accident accident. Donald Trump not an accident. Donald trump put her right next to him. That's because CBS is moving to the right. You're going to see it. They made the business calculation.

It would be wonderful if everything would stop up in the world so that we could just focus on our stuff here in the United States but there's a lot going on around the globe so we're GonNa do a little bit of news first and then in our main segment we will get up to speed on what's happening with impeachment and Ukraine and the president of the United States reaction to all of that will end as always with what's what's on our minds outside of politics just going to tease here that I want to give you an update on Big Brother Sarah. I know you're excited. Okay well speaking in a big brother. That's actually a great segue into one of the biggest stories around the globe over the weekend which were the violent protests in Hong Kong so the Hong Kong protests are entering their seventeenth week and they have really dialed up in the past few days because today is the seventieth anniversary of communist Communist rule in China as you can imagine pro democracy protesters in Hong Kong are not exactly excited to celebrate this anniversary but it's a big deal for China which which means. It's a big way for the protesters to send a message. China puts on a big military display in previous years. They've had twelve thousand troops marched through Tiananmen Square where they expect those numbers to be even bigger this year and so with a trade war already giving lots of negative press to China and its economy Hong Kong and in at specifically the pro democracy protesters saw this as their chance to continue to protest and make their messages heard. Unfortunately many of the protests turned turned violent. There are lots of reports of police brutality police fired canister after canister of tear gas and the protesters fought back with blockade aide blocking the streets with throwing stones taken up from the sidewalks and streets and with gasoline bombs thrown back in defense at the police police. We are not helping the situation with our trade war with China. Hong Kong's value to the world has often been as a hub that is kind kind of a bridge between the outside world and mainland China and with the increasing friction between China and the United States there are commentators who think think that Hong Kong's value as that hub is diminishing and it's really jeopardising Hong Kong's place in the world long-term The New York Times quotes Lynette Aung Long a China expert at the University of Toronto is saying after all of this we will see a different Hong Kong the very reason for Hong Kong's existence the rule of law respect for the police for public institutions respect for the judiciary the bureaucracy everything has been eroded. This is a really existential time for Hong Kong and having it come at the same time as this anniversary of Communist role in China when Xi Jinping is engaged in his domestic grab for power in making his term term basically unlimited and his G. political jockeying for power with the United States. It's just there's a lot going on here. I am impressed seventeen weeks to sustain protests. It's amazing and I don't think the protesters and Hong Kong are going anywhere. They are really fighting for their country. We had a listener listener reach out on instagram and say I don't understand the goal of these protests because even if many of their demands hands are met and many have been the original legislation to extradite political prisoners to China or anybody else charged with a crime was withdrawn officially but she asked even if they succeed and having these demands bet we're coming up on the deadline where we have one country two systems that was set up when Hong Kong was released from British rule and turned back over to the Chinese government that that deadline is approaching and so so what do we see happening. What are they. What are the protesters? The PRO democracy protesters who existed before this bill came before the Hong Kong legislator the what's their goal. What is the the long view of how they could exist separate from China if they imagine a scenario when China would ever allow that to happen and and the answer is I don't know I don't know and I don't really feel like it's my place to advocate for one of the other because I don't live in Hong Kong and so the people who do and the the pro democracy protesters particularly the the young ones that people who are going to be living way past just the deadline of this agreement have demands and they do have a vision and it does seem to be if not separate from China fiercely independent and I think as the weeks of the protests continue we'll have a better understanding of where they envisioned all this going but the Chinese government government most certainly envisions a more forceful physical clash with these protesters. Let's turn our attention to the Middle East. Sixty thirty minutes made a lot of headlines this weekend. NORAH O'Donnell sat down with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and it was a wide ranging pretty significant interview. Here are the salient points as I read them. Mohammed bin Salman said that he did not personally order the murder of journalist Jamal Shoji now that is against the weight of intelligence that our intelligence community has reviewed but he says he absolutely did not order that murder and he said this was a heinous crime but I take full responsibility as leader in Saudi Arabia especially since it was committed by individuals working for the Saudi government and Norah O'Donnell ask. What does that mean that you take responsibility. He said when a crime is committed against a Saudi citizen by officials working for the Saudi government as a leader. I must take responsibility. This was a mistake and I must take all actions to avoid such thing in the future and what really interested me in this interview. Sarah is that as they went on in their discussion. NORAH O'Donnell says hey the American government thinks you did this. What do you have to say about that and he said no. There is not an official statement announced by the American government in this regard which which is a problem as we were doing research for this episode. I was digging into story. We're going to talk about the main segment which is reporting that the FBI is continuing to investigate Hillary Clinton's emails and around the same time I was looking at that story's about Kashogi in this interview and the fact that the secretary of State Mike Pompeo called for an investigation into the murder which has never happened and I thought I cannot believe that we are investigating Hillary Clinton's emails but we have not not launched an investigation into the brutal murder of this man that the entire international community places at the feet of the crown prince. I'm just I'm blown away by that and what is our Congress to do now that he has said he has at least admitted at the Saudi government was involved right people working for the Saudi government did this now he says. How was I supposed to know. We got lots of people working for the Saudi government. I take responsibility but it wasn't me I mean what is our Congress going to do with that. Our Congress that has several times tried to prompt the administration to make an official statement about this and to do something and our the president just continues to talk about it like there is no set of facts here that would warrant materially changing our relationship with Saudi Arabia because it's so transactional in his vision because there is so much money at play with Saudi Arabia then nothing can trump that nothing can over come the fact that there are so many economic reasons to ally ourselves with Saudi Arabia uh and so what is to stop the Saudi Arabian government the crown prince himself from engaging in these heinous acts so in addition addition to the portion of the conversation that focused on Jamal Kaji the crown prince also answered some questions Norah O'Donnell about the attack on Aramco. Oh and he says that Iran did it and he doesn't think there's any strategic goal. They're just stupid. He said only a fool would attack five percent of global supplies. The only strategic goal is to prove that they are stupid and that is what they did. I can imagine that that's going over real well in Iran today. It just come on are we. Are we supposed to take that seriously. Are we supposed to take that. Iran is just trying to show its longtime foe Saudi Arabia that they're stupid I don't. I don't even know why they kept that in the while they edited that into the interview honestly so Mike Pompeo said that the attack on Aramco was an active war and the crown prince agreed with that and said that he hoped a diplomatic solution would be available because of how catastrophic a military very solution would be and he expressed support for president trump trying to negotiate a new deal with Iran will put in the show notes a link where you can read the transcript of that entire interview interview but it was very interesting and in my view unsettling we also had several immigration decisions come down from federal judges with regards to several of the policies within the trump administration. We had a federal judge blocked the new rules that allow the government to detain pain migrant children with their parents indefinitely as we've reviewed several times on the podcast. The floor is settlement says that the federal government can only hold children for a finite amount of time so I don't even know the legal basis for which the trump administration just showed up and said and we're going to reject the settlement and hold children and families indefinitely you can hear a lot more about this decision on last night's nightline nuance but the trump administration ineffectively decided that it would use the administrative procedures act rulemaking process to just on its own in the flora's agreement and make its own new regulations and the judge who heard this case in the central district of California said that was Kafka esque and is not going to happen that the flora's agreement is the rule of law she she can't by judicial. Fiat declare it over if Congress doesn't like it can do something about it but the administration cannot do it by just announcing new rules. The administration action has sort of had a sustained effort to ignore the administrative procedures act by either not giving sufficient justifications vacations you saw that in Justice Roberts and him rejecting the reasoning behind the census decision to include citizenship question and they continued it either ignore the process assessed by not allowing for public comment or presenting very little if no justification and reasoning for their decisions and I I think they're seeing the impact of that with other rejection of their new policies. Another federal judge blocked is from using a flawed odd database to target immigrants so this was specifically with regards to the way that ice issues detainers to local law enforcement officials so if someone is arrested then the ice will issue a detainers and say we want you to keep them for us but they were using this database that had sort of infamous for bad data bad sources was leading to some really awful outcomes for immigrants that had had been detained by local law enforcement officials and so this judge says no you can't do that anymore. It's not that you can't issue detainers. You most certainly can't issue them based on this database a third federal judge in like a forty eight hour period. These decisions came rapidly after one another blocked the administration from allowing immigration officers to deport people seeking entry into the country before they could appear in front of a judge. The administration is likely to appeal these decisions the administration and has put out a strongly worded statement that they continue to try to enforce Congress's law and the federal courts continue issuing these nationwide injunctions preventing them from doing that but this move to try to prevent people from seeing an immigration judge appears in those regulations trying to circumvent the floor as agreement as well. Well you see the trump administration wanting to get away from due process around immigration in favor of expedients and that is always going to provoke the ire of federal courts so we're in for a lot more decisions like this. I think we're in to see a lot of these decisions making their way up to the the Supreme Court as the trump administration really tramples on some foundational principles around our system of justice in the way that it's trying to enforce immigration laws this week we we wanted to complement another aspect of law enforcement and the justice system. That's out there really fighting and fighting in hard to combat the OPIOID crisis. The New York Times has a story this weekend about a thirty six year old doctor in Virginia who is supplying and opioids in five states and he is facing life in prison for this truly criminal conduct and you see it with all the state's attorneys generals working to get the best possible outcome for their states and for recovery efforts from the sackler family you see it in even federal efforts to provide resources to areas of the country that are still struggling and struggling mightily with opioid crisis. This particular dealer Doctor That The New York Times profiled the case of I mean it's not even close to an office. They talk about how his office didn't have basic medical supplies the receptionist this lived out of a back room during the workweek. The office was frequently open past midnight. He didn't take insurance. People came in with cash and credit cards arts. He took in over seven hundred thousand dollars over two years and it's just you know clearly a pill mill that has impacted so many lives and so many people and and so we want to share another resource for those of you interested in learning more about the opioid crisis we recently met bestselling author. Stephanie whittles walks who host as last day a new podcast from Lebanon media and Stephanie lost her own brother Comedian Harris whittles to an overdose in two thousand fifteen so she is zooming in on the last day of a person's life to figure out how they got there and then zooming back out to tell the the bigger cultural picture around what happened and what we can do about it. It is a fantastic podcast.

It strikes me that many of the developments over the weekend are hard to parse out from from messaging tweets interviews to get to what actually changed and when are we just talking about about how everyone is talking about the impeachment inquiry. I think that's a good observation. It is driving me bananas. I have to tell you I have developed an impeachment self care roll myself which is that if I am going to listen to or watch something so do anything other than read about this whole situation and I have to be either outside or moving my body in some way and then my second rule is that if I'm going to sit down and read I have to have a beverage or food that comforts comforts me while I do it so this morning i made over the weekend this berry compote with like mint and Carmen and it's fantastic so I just slathered it on the Bagel as I did. My show prep today after I did some yoga poses watching showtime circus because I cannot take this information in without like a little. Hey Hey remember the world is still an okay place to be in well. Let's get to the actual changes in the situation. Since the last time we spoke I think one of the main ones and most important is that former special representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker resigned. We're going to hear more from him this week. AAC because the other big development is the House Intelligence Committee issued subpoenas specifically Secretary Mike Pompeo but also announced this week that that they will be speaking with former. US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Ivanovic and Kurt Volker and we'll have closed door hearings with Inspector General Michael Atkinson listen. We also learned that the whistle blowers lawyers are negotiating with Adam Schiff. There is an agreement that the whistle blower will testify in closed hearings to the House intelligence committee the exact details of that are not confirmed as the time that we're recording this podcast there has been reporting and some of it overblown about the conversations stations that shift in the whistle blowers lawyers have been having the whistleblowers lawyers specifically were unhappy with the coverage of this issue on sixty minutes. We Will Lincoln the show notes. The actual will letter that the whistle blowers lawyers sent to acting deny McGuire about their concerns for the lower safety part of that letter references a Washington Shing Tin Examiner report that to just I'm sorry Wackadoo far-right individuals have issued a fifty thousand dollar bounty for Information Nation relating to the whistle blowers identity and the lawyer said to acting McGuire. Unfortunately we expect the situation to worsen and become even more dangerous for our client Ryan and any other whistleblowers as Congress seeks to investigate this matter so that conversation between the whistle blowers attorneys and the House Intelligence Intelligence Committee is ongoing but we do expect them to actually connect in person in a secure environment very scene I kind of wondered if they will continue to talk about the negotiations to meet and then all of a sudden it will be they met because it's not like they're gonNA announce. We've concluded concluded the negotiations and now we will meet and then leave everybody on high alert for when that meeting might take place so. I wonder if that's what's going to happen that seems like the most prudent of course of action especially because the president's conduct on twitter is I think materially endangering this whistleblower every time the president talks about how we used to treat spies his right to confront this person in person his right to know who gave this person me information. It's it's dangerous so this is where we get into the middle ground because arguably much of the president tweets about is an attempt at messaging he tweeted over eighty times this weekend and much of it was re retweets amplifying some truly offensive messages but then is it just messaging when it's the president of the United in States isn't just messaging when he is accusing Adam Schiff of treason. Is it just messaging when he is re tweeting a pastor who said that impeachment could good luck to a civil war. I mean this is where we get into this really messy gray area where he is just tweeting but because it is the president tweeting in because his of the tenor of the things that he says on twitter are so offensive and dangerous and energizing to do people who could have really corrupt and dangerous intentions then. I think we're passing out of messaging is really interesting so much has been written about the comparison between this current impeachment inquiry in the impeachment of Bill Clinton and how how they had that the Clinton White House had an impeachment war room they really tried to compartmentalize so they had messaging and I'm response as ready to the impeachment and then the president was free and the largely administrative and White House staff was free to continue the work the presidency but because Donald Trump first of all has very little communication staff at this point second of all really doesn't trust anybody else with his communication education and third of all doesn't seem concerned with doing any work outside screaming about how unfairly he's being treated on twitter then you have him occupying the space where he's basically out there being his own spin doctor in tweeting and sharing insane really dangerous things. I I agree with you that I think this is something different than his normal twitter usage and I think it highlights the difference between the subject of the Muller Report and end this situation surrounding Ukraine and record keeping as to the president's calls with Ukraine because if you think about the subject of the Muller report which I believe was very serious and cause for deep concern and would have justified the opening of an impeachment inquiry as well. He was not the president event during those conversations right. He is a candidate for the presidency and one would hope that a major party's nominee running for the presidency would be held to a fairly the high standard but he wasn't the president then this time he brings the entire power of the presidency to every discussion. I heard Michael mcfaul fall the former ambassador to Russia on meet the press this weekend. Say everyone keeps talking about whether there was a quid pro. Quo Understand that in diplomacy everything is as a quid pro quo. There's never something that is just a favor. That has no reciprocation. Why would anyone do that when you're talking about international national relations and so in addition to the facts being a little easier to understand and a lot more direct. I think the fact that he is the president during this one makes it materially different than the first one and then when you think about his tweets and him tweeting that Adam Schiff should be arrested arrested and tried for treason. He's not saying that as a private citizen he saying that as the President I feel like if you're sitting around wondering if he's really as bad as Democrats make him out to sound you need do nothing more than look at his timeline on twitter for him to tell you himself that he is ready willing to abuse the power of this office against American citizens at will you know one of the other big interviews reviews that came out this weekend that I think blurs the line. Between are we talking about messaging and people sharing their opinions of what's happening and is is this news that really should affect our view of what's happening is the interview with Tom Bossert the first homeland security advisor who was forced out by John Bolton who spoke with ABC News over the weekend. Much of the reporting is messaging which is oh. There's a break in the Republican line. This loyal advisor Iser said that he was deeply disturbed by the president's call and let's share a little bit audio right now. It is a bad day bad week for this president for this country country if he is asking for political dirt on an opponent but it looks to me like the other matter that's far from proven is whether he was doing anything anything to abuse his power and withhold aid in order to solicit such a thing that seems to be far from proven and it's going to be the focus of. I think our Congress for the next year so yes. I think it's important that someone who advised the president has been loyal to the president is willing to step out and say this was wrong but to me one one of the bigger stories shared by him and reported on the New York Times is how much time he and other advisers. I spent trying to talk the president out of this conspiracy theory that it was Ukraine not Russia that intervene in the two thousand sixteen election action which is the first thing he mentions in the transcript of the call with Zielinski so reading about the ways that he continually rejected the the opinion of the intelligence community and you know they would get convinced and then he died back in with the conspiracy theories in the far right media and start saying and talking about things that his own intelligence community said hey this is not true is so problematic and that is the nicest word I could to describe that in Rudy Giuliani seems to really be at the heart of that from bossert interview and what we read elsewhere. It sounds like Giuliani has never been unwilling to push back on the president and his staff is constantly there to get him all spun up about whatever might make him feel better about his own election and that to me is just a recurring theme that this president is consumed with that twenty sixteen ecksteen election and with making sure. Everybody knows that he's really the president. It's maddening that the Republican talking point about impeachment right now is that Democrats are obsessed with the two thousand sixteen election because it seems to me that the person who's obsessed with the two thousand sixteen election. Is this president he cannot move on from this issue and as Tom Bossert said it's going to be his white whale yeah. I liked how he described it as his obsession with getting his pound of flesh like he wants revenge. Vinci feels like somebody out there did this. I don't understand how you how you interpret a foreign country intervening Servino for your benefit as somebody's out there to get you yeah they were out to get you to get you elected and I guess he sees as the the Muller probe and all that investigation that came out of that as somebody out to get him into us something that was perfectly really acceptable to undermine his presidency because he's already insecure about the results of the two thousand sixteen election. I guess here's what The Wall Street Journal says about Durham's investigation and this is a direct quote. It appears that Ukrainian officials who backed the Clinton campaign provided information that generated the investigation of Mr Manafort acts that that one Ukrainian court has said violated Ukrainian law and quote lead to interference in the electoral processes of the United States in twenty sixteen in harm the interests of Ukraine as a state right now. I don't know what to make this. I don't know why the Wall Street Journal ran this in an opinion piece. I don't know what John Durham is going to tell all of us. That's what I do know is this is why we don't casually involve other countries in our electoral processes because the best best case scenario for countries who do not wish the United States well is for us to be confused about what the truth is. The best case scenario is for us to both sides is everything the best case scenario is for us to say. Oh you're corrupt will actually you're more corrupt and to have US ping pong back and forth and not trusting anyone anyone or anything and that's why we cannot be so cavalier about this. Mike Hanna believe that any Republicans are reading that call L. Memorandum that the White House released and trying to say Oh this whistle blower thing is all hearsay this gets to concerns. I have about the reporting about polling where Americans are an impeachment how the Democrats are going to handle impeachment. How the twenty twenty candidates are speaking about impeachment in this idea. A DEA that because impeachment is a political question and absolutely to a large extent is that everything lives and dies on the latest poll all in where Americans are moving. I mean the first thing for me is the polling numbers are high. I mean when you had impeachment inquiry opened with Nixon it was like ten percent and you haven't some polls over fifty percent of Americans supporting the impeachment inquiry. You're never. I don't know what we're trying to get at where everybody can stop reporting about the polling. I don't know if we need ninety percent of Americans in favor seventy five percent of Americans favor one hundred percent of independent voters in favor but the obsession with polling this constantly. I think leads to the idea that what we're trying to do here is sort of a majority rule on whether anything happened that broke the law and that to me is is where the conversation about this particular impeachment inquiry is is getting a little fuzzy. You know I understand that people worry about whether or not the Senate will actually remove Donald Trump from office office. I understand that people feel like donald trump for his entire. Presidency for lack of a better term has gotten away with all manner of crimes and corruption. I understand that there are a certain amount of people that make up Donald Trump's base and they're not going to leave him. No matter what I even understand the idea that well he got here he won the election and we should use an election to remove him mm-hmm but you can talk about all that and still fairly clearly delineate the concerns that the law was broken broken and I don't care how many members of his base or how many independent voters or for many swing voters in Michigan think that we should move on. We don't vote on whether the law was broken or not. It's not a majority rules decision. We have processes that determine whether or not the law was broken and if we're going to continue continue to value the rule of law and believe that they apply no matter what the polling or no matter how much the current person disregards that law and we have to move forward here and I just the the way it's spoken about in the way people people have conversations with him. Everyday life are so oh flippant about this as if it's just it's just another new story and it doesn't matter because the Senate will never remove him. You know inevitably I say have you read the complaint. Inevitably the answer is no but it really bothers me that because there are politics involved here that we somehow decided that if independent voters don't think we should investigate a clear violation of law. The nothing wrong happened and that's that's not the case yeah. We're not a direct democracy for a reason. There are certain things that we should expect people who know more about them to handle and there are certain things that we should expect people to pay attention to when we can't make room to pay attention attention to it in our everyday lives if you think about the issues that are arising right now from the news cycle it is how is the reporting being done. It is Rudy Giuliani and what role he is playing is he. The president's lawyer is he some kind of Anwar from the State Department. If so what kind of processes have been in place around that like what what is he doing out there because what you're doing out there on the international stage at the behest of the president of the United States matters a lot it is how the president is responding responding to this and whether his responses raise any legal issues it is the safety of this whistle blower. It is how the Department of Justice handled this whistleblower complaint. The fact that our attorney general girl weighed in on a conversation about whether the whistle blower laws applied to this complaint given that the president was the subject and concluded that they did not you know it is is the fact that the State Department continues to Review Hillary Clinton's emails that they say that his routine insulated from the political process but it's being reported on as though it is the trump administration just trying to throw that issue back into the news it is the way the House committees are working there so much going on here and I think the one takeaway takeaway I have for today is to be very deliberate about reading past the headlines to understand what's going on and to let the process unfold and to recognize. Is You just said so. Well Sarah that we don't raise our hands in this country to decide if something is wrong taught some things are just wrong and we elect our representatives in order to have them stand up and say so Beth. What's on your mind outside politics. We've had the big brother finale now and I need to give you an update because I know that you just are not going to be engaging with reality television to the depth that I am a few weeks. Can I can I this is the one where they live in the house right the one where they live in the house and they're they get the money as sort of five hundred thousand dollars to the winner of Big Brother Okay so who's the last person in the house the last person so what happens everybody everybody gets voted out until two people at the end and then the folks that they voted out decide who wins the money between them okay so. I wrote about big brother in our email newsletter earlier this season because a lot of what was happening on. Big Brother has been really controversial this season listen the first few people evicted were minorities. It felt very much like there was an in crowd an out crowd and there was a lot of sexism Azzam going on in the way people talk to each other. There was racism in who was in that in crowded out crowd. There was an older player who was really marginalized early. In the season he ended ended up doing very well but there were a lot of dynamics that were generating tons of controversy in the big brother watching community which I am teeny tiny part of I do not tweet about it or watch anything other than what gets put into the produce show but I was aware of all this controversy and reading articles about it occasionally because because as our listener and friend Marjorie pointed out like what happens on American Reality Television does have a pretty significant cultural effect and so. I was frustrated all season that I felt like CBS was not adequately stepping up to raise this topic with the players well that all changed on finale night and if you've not watched the finale yet you might WanNa just jump ahead a bit because there will be spoilers here so we get down to the last two people the players who've been invited out there to vote on the winner and whereas the finale might conversation is usually sort of like oh you two seem hit it off in the house. Do you think this show mance will last in the real world like real fluff nonsense that we often fast forward through this time. Julie Chen was like the right everybody so let's talk about the fact that a lot of viewers felt that your decision here was racist and there were contestants who who said like. I was bullied in the house when you watch this back. I hope it makes you a better person. I mean it was intense tints and it was uncomfortable and she did all of this before the voting and the winner was announced and when the winner walked out of the House you could see he was devastated like there's confetti popping and he looks like he's been hit by a truck because you could see him just thinking like what did I say say. What did I do and when she asked him how he was feeling he said you know the most important thing to me is that my parents are proud and I hope that we're good and I wanted to bring this up the show because I think we're due for more like really uncomfortable moments like that as a country where we're not willing to just say the show must go on and here's what we normally do but we sit for a second and we say this this raised questions. We need to talk about it. The Reaction Action for most of the House guests who were sort of accused of bullying or having biases was like I'm not sure what you're talking about. I certainly didn't mean that it was just game but I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings and one of the former contestants. Kimmy said I think people should know what they're apologizing for before they apologize like she just refused to accept the apology of like. I didn't mean it. I don't know what you're talking about but I'm sure that I didn't the way you said like she just wasn't having it and I thought it was really healthy and important and a good example. I liked that. I liked that a lot. I think that that is starting to chip away at all the the bad ideas and instincts that and cultural trends that reality shows are responsible for so good for you big brother. I thought Julianne it wasn't on that show anymore. Oh no she is and she introduces herself now. This is the other direction but now she introduces herself as Julie Chen Moon Vez Amerson Emerson situation. Oh yes they are and she is very much backing him on that so you know it's not all great news from CBS but I did appreciate the way they handle this finale. What are you thinking about outside of politics well. I want to speak to something sort of related. I think to this issue which was was an article in the new republic called the cancel Culture Khan and specifically what this article is talking about is stand standup comedy and the pushback you see from largely older largely pretty successful all male comics against cancel culture political correctness the idea that they can't come to college campuses anymore. I I had not been following this particular controversy but Dave Chapelle had a new netflix special and said some truly offensive things about to Michael Jackson's accusers and children of sexual abuse anybody who had been abused by Michael Jackson and this article really Ali pushes back against the idea that oh well stand up comics have to be allowed to crack jokes and figure out a AH push against societal norms it starts with the story of Lenny Bruce the the comic from the sixties who was arrested for indecency and they're sorta they did a really good job of basically saying what really pushing against this this phrase cancelled culture like what do we mean we mean that you get criticized based on the Internet because Dave pells doing just fine and still cash in lots of checks as are several of the other comics that are S- supposedly become victim of cancel culture the article also looks to several essays that have been critical of cancel culture and leads in enlists all the things that have canceled and Oh. We're canceling kids it talk specifically about the strangers. Katie Herzog who wrote an essay about cancel culture says the guilty party Herzog references with a link here is cuyler Murray a football player who made an apology after winning the heisman trophy last year when it was discovered he had written homophobic tweets as a teen those curious about how alow cancel ization has brought. Murray should tune into Fox next Sunday afternoon. He's now the starting quarterback for the Arizona. Cardinals and I just thought it was so good because Huzzah first of all you know we all know I have a passion for stand up comedy. I think all of that is really fascinating and I think they make a really good point of no. You're not you're or not being censored. You're being criticized and people are mad not only because your jokes are offensive but because they're also not funny and instead of of changing and adapting and finding a way to be funny in a culture that changes an adaptive and adapts constantly you. WanNa stay stuck at your peak when you were allowed to be as offensive as offensive as you wanted to be and to make jokes on the backs of the Lgbtq community on the backs of women on the backs of racial minorities and you're you're just mad that you can't do that anymore and that people don't think it's funny and I think that is so fair I think that stand up comics and the comedy scene in general have become the thing that they claim to be criticizing so sensitive to any pushback and the idea that will I can't you know comedy. Comedy has to be wide open and I have to be able to say whatever you whatever I want. No comedy survives when it's funny. If you can't be funny in the face of changing headwinds then that's your fault and not the audience's and I just thought that the take down of all these essays that want to God we're on fire because there's cancel culture and I'm a person that that has had beef with cancel culture in the past but I I thought that this new kind of hey what do we mean biking's contre because often on this things that we just canceled are in fact doing just fine and surviving and going onto continued success. She thought it was really really good article. It's almost almost like we just need to talk about how we need a more productive way to address problems because you're right ate a lot of what gets canceled goes on to thrive in no small part due to the backlash to the cancellation right up in my problem with what I would term cancelled cancelled culture is always that it is genuinely unproductive to have see if people condemn someone online to do what the president of the United States states does by bringing out people who are very extreme and are willing to take the conversation past. I don't want you on my TV anymore to. I don't want you alive anymore right and I don't think we need any of that so it's like how can we have a real discussion about. Someone legitimately did something wrong. There should be consequences consequences. Those consequences should be calibrated to the wrong that they have done and then we all go back to our lives well and I think the most important part which this article gets at is distinguishing between somebody who has put themselves or their work into the public eye and someone who has not who is just an ordinary citizen who perhaps got caught on camera doing something terrible or you know whatever the case may be but to lump all those things together and to lump you know an an ordinary citizen who is being docks with Kanye West is just it's not the same. I don't WanNa hear that it is. I think we have two distinct if you put your work in yourself out in the public out there in the public eye. I'm assuming that you understand that twitter exists in that could lead to consequences for you so I don't know I thought thought this article did a really good job of starting to instead of doing the sort of classic thumbs up thumbs down cancel culture really scratching at what we mean by that and the impact of those criticisms particularly on public figures we are so glad that you all have joined us and that's an interesting segue because on Friday we plan to talk with you a little little bit about the anniversary of the metoo movement and kind of putting together some layers of that movement as we've gotten some distance from the initial official learnings about people in positions of power abusing that power of course we will continue to keep you posted on instagram and twitter and patriotic about the developments in impeachment over the weekend.

Politics Injected into Super Bowl, Repercussions for California Governor, and Chicago Students Still Not In School

"Bill o'reilly here. Welcome to the no spin news for monday february. Two thousand twenty one. Stand up for your country so you got a lot of coverage of the impeachment coming up tomorrow the super bowl which happened last night and i'm getting into the politics of the super bowl as well as a little bit on the game not too much but i have some insights there and finally you buy stuff on the internet. You buy products on the net. You don't want to hear what i have to say about. That might save you some money. Okay so let's go to. The joe biden super bowl interview. I'm perhaps the best expert in world on these things. Because i've done three of them. Nobody else has done more than that. Two of them were live. The by interview was taped on thursday last thursday and run on sunday neuro donald. Cbs was the interview earth. Okay so there were some interesting parts of that interview more interesting than most but miss o'donnell missed a few openings that surprise me because they weren't complicated so let's start with the cova thing because this was the big theme of the interview. Go wanted disappointments. Was we came into office. Is the circumstance related into the station. Handling covert was even more dire than we thought it. Trump admits trump administration. We thought the indicated there is a lot more vaccine available and didn't turn out to be the case. Okay so that's not really fair. Because the trump administration did get the vaccine produced in record time and saved millions of lives in the process. Now the rollout of the vaccine is a complicated issue because goes from a private company to the states and where the federal government fits into that mosaic is undefined. there is no doubt that after the election donald trump disengaged from a daily Oversight of most everything. And that's too bad but that's the truth. Donald trump was so crazed because he thought the election was stolen from him that a lot of things that he would have looked at he did and he was concentrating on overturning the vote. That's the truth again. I mean it's not a matter of speculation. it's not a guess. Absolutely what happened. So there's a point that maybe had president trump engaged on a vaccine more. It would have rolled out better. But that's just a guess an opinion because again you go from a private company. Two of them madonna adviser into the state apparatus. Now some states have been pretty calm pretty smooth. When i was down in florida a couple of weeks ago very organized my state new york absolute chaos and there are more people in florida. No excuse so anyway. If i had been norah o'donnell can you explain mr president. What exactly the hold up is i guarantee you. One hundred percent that joe biden could not explain that and that is a very simple question but instead a neuro donal allows biden to take a shot at trump. But there's no clarity what happened. Nothing zero and this is standard procedure at network news. You don't get anything you don't learn anything. Our second sound bite It's basically a guest soundbite. Rolla tape you're president of the united states commander in chief. Can you do something in terms of going to madonna going to visor saying we need more production. Yes i think because we've already done it but the idea that this can be done and we can get to hurt immunity much before the end of next. Summer is is very difficult. Why why you see it. Look it's the same thing you know you're going around in circles but he's not giving you or me or anybody the why of what is the problem. Drives me crazy. And i'm not being arrogant or supercilious. I know that i have more experience. Orel donal in any probably anybody else in the business. But this is fundamental interviewing skill. You are trying to get information to the people who are watching. You not let joe biden or donald trump. Barack obama. Say anything they want to say. Tell me what the problem is not dead. It's trump's for what is it didn't get it and it wasn't even close is third sound bite. A is about the kids where getting hammered. Because of covid go. Do you think it's time for schools to reopen. I think it's time for school through open safely safely. You have to have fewer people classroom menthylatim systems that have been reworked. Our cdc commissioner was going to be coming out with science based judgment within. I think as early as wednesday as the lab what the minimum requirements are okay safely safely safely. All miss o'donnell head to do is going but catholic schools. All over the country are open have been opened since september and there hasn't been any disaster. Isn't that sad. What's the difference between a catholic school and the public school this fundamental journalism. That is no longer practiced in this country. Says it brilliance. You gotta anticipate with biden's going to say. Oh yeah i wanna open them but safely yet all right but we already have a parallel track where there are thousands of schools open private and catholic and it hasn't been a problem. So what's holding you up in ordering the nation's public schools to open what is the whole. We need ventilation the catholic schools. Not have the ventilation. I you know i. I don't know whether you get his agitated as i get. Because this is the highest level. This is the anchor person. Cbs news higher than that over there. And this is just going. It's not a matter of pointing biden. It's how much does the man no. How much does he know. He's the president. Now if you go to bill o'riley dot com and you because we have the montage up to obama interviews one trump interview. You see me challenge them. Challenge them what they say. Norodom challenge you about once now. Was there a deal made. I don't think so. I don't think that happened. I know a lot of you think. Oh you had a question advance. I don't think so. But i believe that there was probably a tacit understanding. We're not gonna push the man off. Drives me crazy it really because this is so important. The two children school thing is so important. I want to open reopen safely. Yeah are you gotta template mr president right in front of your nose. You're a catholic. You go to church every sunday. Attached to many of the churches are catholic schools that have been open since september. Isn't that safely. Okay i gotta calm down. Bruce springsteen fan of the boss understand is appeal admire that he came from working class roots to become one of the most famous pop in the world music. Born in the us as all right. But i'm not a big boost fan so bruce's radical left wing guy. I don't think even bruce with dispute that his whole life he's been a radical left wing dot. It's fine it's fine. I mean most thorough rockstars are that most of them. Are you know it goes back to the vietnam days of protests on back to woody guthrie all that okay so a very very left wing. So jeep hires. Bruce probably paid him between three and five million to do to spot. Because springsteen doesn't do commercials about between three and five today taping no white collar crime. I got blue shirt. College or three and five million couple of days and bruce does a commercial for jeep. That says yeah. We gotta bring everybody together. And if you buy a jeep that's gonna make it easier rolling it There's a chapel. In kansas standing on the exact center of the lower forty eight it never closes all are more than welcome to come nishi in the middle. It's no secret. The middle has been a hard place to get to between red and blue between serving and citizen between our freedom and our fear now. Fear has never been the best of who we are and as for freedom. It's not the property of the fortunate few. It belongs to us all whoever you are. Wherever you're from is what connects and we need that connection. We need the middle. We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground so we can get there. We can make it to the mountaintop through the desert and we will cross this divide are light has always on its way through the darkness. And there's a on the road ahead. So i don't know if i buy a jeep. I gotta drive to the mountain through the desert. Do i go to grandma's house that was a dopey as commercial. I've seen in years. Why because jeep is using a committed left wing individual to tell the whole country including traditional people. Conservative people trump voters. Hey if you get a jeep and you kind of drive to kansas. Then maybe we can get together or something like that. So i'm going. I'm not sure. Bruce was the right guy here. Not sure because he does a radio program on his radio program he consistently trash people with whom he disagrees. Rolla tape but with one hundred thousand plus americans dying over the last few months and the empty shame response from our leaders. I've been simply pissed off. Those rise deserve better than just being inconvenienced to disticts for president's reelection efforts it's a national disgrace all right. Well bruce i guess missed the vaccine development. I guess he missed that all right and he missed the fact that the governors of individual states were in charge of the cova response in their states. I guess bruce didn't get either of those two thing. It was all about trump. Wanting to be reelected for bruce in bruce's mind reelected and so he killed everybody with cova killed. Anybody didn't wear a mask or you didn't do this. We didn't do that so this legitimate criticizing about president trump and covert. But not this not that kind of nonsense. So that's bruce springsteen on june twenty-first. He said that. October twenty eighth just a few months ago. Here's what he said. We don't have the tape on this. I guess somebody stole it. But here's the full screen on a quote. A good portion of our country to my has been thoroughly hypnotize brainwashed by a conman from queens mixing. Some jingoism some phony patriotism fear of a black planet vanity narcissism paranoia conspiracy theories and portion of our nation undergoing mass delusions and teetering on violence. And you're left with the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime unquote bruce springsteen okay so springsteen's zealot and jeep. Pays them all the money to sell. Gps under the banner of bruce and the jeep organizations going to unite us. Who we i love. That word who he doesn't even come close to describing that are cancel culture update super bowl protesters demand the kansas city chiefs. Ditch the name chiefs okay. Only about thirty protesters showed up in tampa. They're mad about they say quote chiefs imagery does not honor native americans because it is about making money. Yes it is national football league's about making money. That's correct but i don't think word chief says anything to do with it. We do have a legitimate native american story coming up off my book killing crazy horse in just a few moments. But they don't want chiefs now. The god redskins redskins just got got indians. Cleveland indians guy. Now the chief surrogate chiefs okay Why the chiefs lost last night. So this is a tragic story. That the cbs announcers ignored and gymnast. One of the best announcers in a world surprised the ignore distort tony romo. He does what he's told to do. So andy redo coach Head coach of the kansas city chiefs. His son also worked for the chiefs got involved in a fatal accident or an accident. That hurt a child who's in critical condition. I think that's hurt a child in critical condition. That that's the story not fatal. Okay mr other son died from an overdose of heroin few years back so now. He's got his other boy and error checking it out to see if there was drinking involved. Whatever this had away on andy. Reid had no father in the world could processes when as a child in in critical condition. And your son is responsible for the accident. So this was huge wasn't was not even mentioned not even mentioned and this again goes to the corruption of the corporate media. The didn't want to say that because there are all these people all over the world watching game they wanna enjoy the game and this is tragic could have been mentioned in a different context before the game started. Which is what. I would have done when romo and nance talk to each other in the booth. That's when it should have been done. Is andy reid. Going to be able to concentrate on the game. How is this going to affect. And we can't possibly answer that you need to know this play. that's how you do it responsibly. Again the corporate media that runs all of the entertainment. Sports and news couldn't care less about being honest about anything. This is the tragedy of our times. Okay so the game unfolds and it was shocking. How undisciplined the kansas city chiefs were penalty after penalty after penalty fault. The kansas city offensive line was Had a lot of injuries. The guys who filled in didn't do that great mahomes y- there were in his face taboos in his face almost every play not his fault. But you gotta give credit to the tampa. Bay bucks and tom because discipline they. The team was disciplined few penalties right. They knew what they were doing. Brady is the most disciplined not athlete. But human being i have ever seen. I know him a little. I have never seen a human being more discipline and tom brady. And as i said on the radio this morning that's what it takes to succeed. If that level in america in a capitalist society a competitive society now i couldn't live the way tom brady lives eaten seeds. It's going to bed at eight thirty eight. He's working out ten hours a day every day. I there's no way all right. There's no way. I mean. I'm pretty disciplined guy and i spend a lot of time in preparation for this program and from my radio programs but he makes me look like some guy laying on the streets of san francisco brady. But he's forty three and he won another super bowl his seventh and he was. Mvp fifth time. Think about it. Nobody is ever come close to doing that. No human being on the planet has ever come close to doing that. And it's because not because he's the greatest gifted athlete of all time. He's not he's good. He's got great talent but he's not the best. He made himself into this by discipline. Tom brady should be taught in every school in this country because discipline is what you need to succeed. That rhymes tampa bay won the game. They weren't the better team right. Kansas city is more skilled players but they were far more disciplined on the field. And that's all right. So let's get through the impeachment follies it starts tomorrow. Joe biden could have put an end to this. And said i'm gonna tell my party members in the house and senate to stand out. We don't need this kind of exposition. You may not like donald trump. But we're not going to go through this because it damages country but instead joe biden plays punches pilot well tape. Let's turn to the impeachment. Trial president trump's impeachment trial. If you were still a senator. Would you vote to convict him. Look i ran like hell to defeat him executives unfit to be president. I've watched everybody else watched what happened when that crew invaded the united states congress. But i'm not in the senate now. All at the senate make that decision. Well let me ask you then something that you do. Have oversight of as president should former president trump still receive intelligence briefings. I think why not because of his radic behavior unrelated to the insurrection. I mean you've called an existential threat. You've called him dangerous. You've called reckless all right well. So that pretty much puts the final nail in the clear shade. Coffin for any kind of detente between joe biden and the republican party. The seventy two million people voted for trump. It's never going to happen by doesn't want it to happen by plato to his progressive crew. He'd love to see donald trump humiliated in any possible way because trump could come back if the economy collapses the only way trump could come back the economy collapses. But he still there now. The impeachment trial is you know begins tomorrow ten. Am today monday. The trump lawyers filed a seventy eight page brief. Saying this is a bunch of garbage. It's unconstitutional president. Didn't do anything to be impeached. There will be a formal debate beginning tomorrow around noon. Sixteen hours in the first debate a year ago. It was twenty four hours of debate. Now it's sixteen to cut back. the key. is that chief. Justice of the supreme court. John roberts refused to preside because he knows is unconstitutional. The whole thing is a sham. It's a political display. And to his credit john roberts part of that is going to be used as want to supreme court to be used as you know forty five. Republican senators voted that it was unconstitutional. There's no way on earth that that donald trump's going to convicted unless in the next twenty four hours is some kind of smoking gun but there has been a smoking gun and nobody reported because the media is corrupt. And that is the justice department. The fbi believes that far right militia people including some proud boys plan the break into the capital planet. Well ahead of time. So that blows out of the water that donald trump's speech or his embrace of the protest which he did say should be peaceful. He said that was worth that. Blows that out of the water that he caused it if this was in motion for a month as the fbi believes it was okay. Then trump on the day of had no effect at all right okay so There are nine impeachment managers from the house. Six of them or radical leftist. Three of them. I don't know plaskitt from the virgin islands. Madeleine dean for pennsylvania. Joe new goose from colorado. I don't know who they are but the others radical leftists they're gonna trash trump. That's what this is all about trash. Trash trash him then. Some republicans will stick up for them. I'll covered for you tomorrow. But i gotta tell you. This is a total waste of time. It is a total embarrassment. The first one was an embarrassment. Nobody even remembers what that was all about a now. We have the second one. If i were trump print up t shirts that say something like wanna try again you know with a little gavel or i mean it's just so damaging so unnecessary but maybe i'm wrong I'm going to bring in my guests now Who following closely. john. Malcolm is the heritage. Foundation's vice president for the institute for constitutional government. Are they my run-up mr malcolm and we're pleased. You hear they make any mistakes or is there anything you wanna add or subtract. Well you said quite a bit. Look i agree that the odds of president trump convicted at trial are very very slim. You said there forty five people on record saying that. They don't think that under the constitution. They conduct this trial. So assuming all fifty five who support going forward with this decide to convict you would still need twelve others to cross over in order to convict him. I agree with you that. I don't think the trial is constitutional but i do think it's a closer question. Then perhaps you do. There are decent arguments on the other side. This is constitutional regardless of what i think about it. They are going to go forward with this. You make a very interesting point about the fact that this trial was planned ahead of time. I tend to agree with you that that shows that this was unconnected to the president's speech or the tribe malcolm hall. You said that trial. The insurrection was planned ahead right. That's correct yeah right yeah sure so just to be clear my Reporting and it's one hundred percent accurate. The fbi is now obtained evidence that the break the capitol right was planned. Well before i'm donald. Trump gave his speech and unless they can they have an email from the proud boys directly to president trump saying. Yeah we'll come and the whole thing is basically an argument over freedom of speech. That's what this is about. Donald trump speech and said look. Thanks for helping me out. Thanks for supporting me. I believe the election was rigged. I'm glad you do to let's peacefully. Go and show people what we think. That's what it was. Well i i agree with you. I think the connection is is very loose and that the fact that this was preplanned helps the president more than it hurts him. But i don't think it completely exonerated. I've heard this argument made and i'm former prosecutor. So i i understand this saying you know. That pre planning didn't come in evacue There was a run up in terms of the president's statements on twitter etc before january. Six speech he certainly had access to the intelligence About something that was preplanned and he did nothing to stop it in. I'm not saying you don't have access to malcolm. He did not have access easily proven because the not come up with this information until a few days ago and as you know the capitol police the police. Everybody was caught by surprise. Nobody thought this was going to happen. I know for the trump was caught by surprise almost mesmerized by it and that costs into react poorly into late. Look there are a lot of mistakes. Made by donald trump. There were mistakes made by donald trump and the first impeachment on the phone with the ukrainian president but none of that even comes close to what the house managers are saying that he consciously wanted violence to happen at the us conflict. That's what they're saying and that's true. It's not true i agree. I agree with you. So the house managers breathe make several logical leaps and for using speech. Like say you need to fight for your country need to fight like hell menendez sort of core political speech and to say that is designed to get raw to get a lynch mob to storm. The capital is a bridge too far. I'm just telling you about what the arguments on the other side will be. I shred them and you could trade them in about six minutes. What this is all about and with the first impeachment was all about. is that people who hate trump. want to believe the worst of him just like not who hated barack obama and bill clinton and hillary clinton it's exactly the same irrational hatred leads to irrational thinking but now the entire country is being damaged by irrational thinking and irrational hatred. I'll give you the last word on it. Well look that's that's true and sadly not new. I mean we have seen over the last summer. Riots all over the country that were irrational and violent. The level of civil discourse in our country on both sides of the political aisle is terrible and people pay attention to that mimic it and extended. That is where we are. Are you going to buy a jeep. Mr malcolm you're gonna. I'm buying a jeep but anyway we really appreciate your time. Thanks very much for this out tonight. All right quick poll from the associated. Press the question was how well would you say. Democracy is working in the usa not well democracy not well forty six percents forty percent almost half the population think democracy is not working well but it makes perfect sense because both sides it's all about trump disposable about trump those who like trump and think the election was taken away from him. They don't think democracy is working. Well they think the election was rigged. Those who hate trump are still angry. He was elected in the first place. So perfect storm of democracy's not working wealth. The truth is that democracy does work well but we have very poor leadership in this country and corrupt media. You combined poor leadership with a corrupt media temporarily. Democracy is like this temporarily code update. Six three ruling from the supreme court says that the state of california cannot close down churches. But they upheld the california law. You cannot sing if you go to church. So singing takes the coronavirus and you have take the mask off. I guess saying. I'm not sure but california was closing down. Churches saying can't go six to three said nah twenty-five percent you can limit it to you can't you don't so you can bet but they have to be able to go. Interestingly enough to three judges the would have knocked out. The church's completely are keagan brier and soda my or these are the liberal activists on the court so you know there are three liberal activists the three conservative. Not sure where they. I call them activists but their firm conservative thomas gorsuch and alito all wanted to let the do whatever they want it and the middle three roberts cavanaugh and coney barrett they said you got to open a churches but will uphold. You can't sing interesting ruling art in california. Now the governor gavin newsom. It's going to be on the ballot and we're trying to figure out when the best estimate we get is between mid august and late september. They're gonna vote in california to remove newsom from office. That's going to happen. They only need less than a million signatures by saint patrick's day march seventeenth. It's going to happen already. A bunch of people wanting to be governor of california. I don't know why anybody would want that job. It's very impossible But that's the situation there. San francisco is suing. The city of san francisco is suing. Its own school district. Open up the classrooms. I love this so this is far. Left versus far left. Remember spy-versus-spy that cartoon far levin city is suing zone. School board open to schools and private lawsuit may sue the city of san francisco for knocking out names on the schools abraham lincoln and george washington chicago. The schools may open thursday. Maybe possibly because the school the unions still don't wanna open why because the teachers unions want their members to teach from home. They get paid the same amount of money. They don't have to go anywhere. it's much easier for them and the students be damned i. I don't have time to do the five crazy colleges courses of but we will do it tomorrow. We put off a couple of times. We'll do it tomorrow This day in history february eighth 1887. President grover cleveland signs. The dawes act. This was horrible. Cleveland is a bad guy when it came to native americans so up until eighteen eighty seven if you re killing crazy or she know this. Most indians were on reservations. Run by themselves. The native americans ran the reservations. They had indian agents but they were in charge. So cleveland gets behind the door. Zack which takes all indian land away from them and gives individual native americans eighty acres for each man and boys got forty acres. Women anything okay. But the government takes these huge tracts of indian land the doors act ridiculous horrible then in nineteen thirty. Four under fdr the wheeler howard. Act changed all that. Which is why you have native americans in charge of the reservations. Now we can all go gamble. Because that's their territory if they wanna have gambling on it. They can't so that's this day in history. Grover cleveland bad guy. February eighth eighteen eighty seven. Okay go to bill. O'riley dot com store.

And i want to get into this final thought about buying stuff on the internet. Okay because everybody does it and things are not going well in some precincts on the jordan harbinger. Show you'll hear amazing stories from people that have lived them from spies to ceo's even an undercover agent who infiltrated the gambino crime family. You're about to hear a preview of the jordan harbinger show with jack garcia. Who did just that. My career was twenty. Four twenty six years was solely dedicated. Working on the cover. I walked in.

For more on how jack became so trusted in the highest levels of the gambino organization checkout episode three ninety two of the jordan harbinger show. It's crazy how much we're stuck at home. Used to be you say goodbye to your dog and spend a lot of time away from the pet. Now we're up close and personal with the pets hours every day. I don't know about you. But i never knew much dark and scratch and lick pause and all that all day long. What about that cat. You might love the extra attention but the hair all over the place it's unreal.

The all natural supplements treats shampoos offers. Something for and your pet will thank you. Dynamite d. i n. o. v. i t. e. dot com. That's dinovite dot com. Okay here is a final thought of the day. So i don't like to go shopping even when the stores are opening into where the mass and i i. This is the god's honest truth. I walk into a store is really nothing there that i want. I'm not a materialist i have. I'm so lucky to have pretty much everything i need to have in this life. I have nice clothes. I have food. I have a dog dog food. And i have people that go shopping for me. Does that sound terrible. But i have people on the payroll. Because i don't have time really to go. Sometimes i do to buy certain things but most of the time. I have other people pick up my groceries and stuff like that. I know that sounds horrible. But it's just a matter of time and plus. I pay a pretty nice book for people to do that. So they're happy to do. Is i'm making money anyway. So now once in awhile i will see something on the internet and i will order on the internet a product. Unfortunately i am six foot. Four two hundred fifteen pounds the thirty six inch waist and long legs. It's hard to fit me. So every time i buy clothes on the internet i gotta cinemax anymore but one of the things that i do is that in our business remember. I am the ceo. Bill o'reilly dot com. I run the show and such a relief to work for corporations anymore. Such a relief I am the ceo. And i reward people who help us. I think that's good business. And usually i was. Send them a basket. From harry and david all right. You know those people they send catalogs in the mail and you just pick up the phone and say i want this cadillacs into this address now. I literally spent thousands of dollars. On harry and david stuff so and then people little baskets of i try to make healthy food but whatever it is harry and david is a pretty good selection and up until last week i was pretty happy with harry and david. Let me tell you what happened. So i had a guy do me a major favour and it was a business favor so i. I ordered a basket. Nice basket to send to the guy. Thought it was fine right. I've been a higher day because they have my name in their little computer system and it has a lot of money. Bill o'reilly spends a lot of money. All right here for the guy from weeks. And i said we're usually people email me a text me. Thanks to the basket. You know i'd almost always happens. You hear from so then. I had my assistant call. Harry and david and harry and david. Oh we didn't send it. We didn't send it. I want why. I guess it was a mistake so i go well. Oh that's bad. You know. I is a business thing and we'll give you money back. I go no. I don't think so now with all money. Spend with you. This hurt me hurt. My business and i would never have known it. You didn't contact me and say the basket wasn't sent. You didn't do that. I had a check too bad too bad. So the ceo is a guy named steven lightman. Before i went on the air. I i want to give the guy a chance because i don't usually do this. You know that. So we call stephen lightman one right. This wrong wouldn't take the call. I will never buy anything from harry and david again ever because it day would do this to me a guy who spends thousands of dollars with them. They'll do it for anyone to anyone. Right harry and david so you're more.

Like media. light the anchor of the evening news with norah o'donnell namely neuro donal. But do you not wanna see. You're on a mountain with beavis and butthead. I'm talking about the super bowl. Obviously what and the ads played during the super bowl and there was one actually. It was like a series. There's patrick stewart on mountain. James corden was on snowmobile. Dora the explorer with their auto mountaintop. But there had for the paramount streaming service. There i noticed. And what are the iterations of the ads. Blink and you miss her cameo anchor of the cbs. Evening news norah o'donnell short came to the paramount streaming service to get your fix of dora and benny if they're going to solve their mystery but after that we're going to need someone really competent to throw it to jeff peggy's with the details. We know donald is there is. Cbs news and election surveys director. Anthony salvanto also on the mountain perhaps at a lower altitude rocky that he repelled down after he got his crampons tangled in a quinnipiac survey of registered voters. Norah o'donnell was on a pantsuit on a mountain. Also another mountain related ad was this. How did apply cockermouth average. How did a key. Who'd love nascar. Knowing his art one day he winds brickyard in daytona. Five hundred. okay. Let's work backwards. The answer to the nascar guy is hitting no. He didn't actually know everyone who gets to that. Level of racing sports believes in themselves and every race has a winner so ipso facto. The winner will have believed himself now. Blind mountain climber thing that is a legitimate question. The guy who did it eric. Why weihenmayer mayor actually climbed the highest peak on seven continents. An amazing amazing achievement. But what is this leading up to. Those who believe in their dream of a new home here in teed rate is a mortgage lender with all the rights. Go okay now. This pushes aside. The what is neuro donald doing on a mountain question in my mind so that my mind can dwell on the question. What the hell does a blind mountain climber have to do with mortgages the answer. Apparently is belief. If you believe in yourself you could get a mortgage. Wait till you have these credit. No just believe mortgages are a belief system more than a financial instrument. I believe get pay back a jumbo loan at five point three percent over thirty years. I believe that's what caused the mortgage crisis. I really did not know where the blind mountain climber ad was headed. I had heard scientology time. So i was worried. Oh my god. The scientologist got their hooks into eric. Wine hand mayor ono so we did dodge that bullet luckily enough unlike poor neuro donald who was sideswiped by a speeding. James corden lane kitano. We'll be filling in until oxygen tanks are depleted on the show. Today i should feel about george shultz a centenarian secretary of state and a counterpoint. To everything that is wrong with modern republicans. But i dr abdul l. siad is a podcast or a public servant. A politician physician. That would all be alliteration if physician was spelled with the heart and he knew it was a physician so i called him. Dr abdul l. siad. He is out with a new book about medicare for all.

All about personal stories in fact. It's not there should be some amount nonfiction personality. That goes into the podcast. But i will tell you. What if you're running a business.

Health department from two thousand fifteen to twenty seventeen. He ran for. Governor did very well in the democratic. Primary has a podcast with crooked media. Those are the pod. Save america folk and wait. How could a guy like this not have a sub stack. I think today on the day. We're interviewing 'em he just announced his substance is that right. That's right what's it called. It's called the incision folks and go to incision that substance dot com. Okay so that was a blatant. That was a blatant piece of promotion. But i did want to have you on because you do have your name and voice in so many different media. So why not. Why not this one. This specific one. Welcome to the gist. Thanks for having me. Mike excited to be here. So as i've i've followed your work which i was aware of you in reading what you were. Writing pre pandemic. You were the sort of person who would always talk about medical issues and epidemiology but you are very very conscious of social media can epidemics and information epidemics and my first question is in. What way is social media contagion. And the way we get information how is that crashing into the realities of this novel corona virus in ways that maybe ten years ago people well trained in public information and public health would never event hesitated. You know what mike what. This pandemic is teaching us. Every single day is the fact that the social is biological. What's happening around us. Circumstances in which we live the decisions we make about how we allocate resources. All of those things shape what ultimately happens in ourselves and it's interesting right. I spent a lot of time in medical school learning about the bad decisions that sells making it. Turns out that a lot of that has a lot more to do with the bad decisions that we as people make and our societies make because of that and right now in particular when you think about these two concepts of virology right there's of course a actual virus that is going by role in the population but part of the reason it can do. That is because we've got disinformation that is constantly going viral in our information ecosystem and the capacity for social media to both aggregate people who believe or are susceptible to believing misinformation and then the ability to drive that disinformation via algorithm exhorting in application. And all these things that happen on social media to corrupt our information ecosystem has created a space where we're seeing the real reality and the online virality crash into each other in real time. And you think about masks right in the context of this pandemic masks have been me into a referendum on whether or not we believe in liberty and lockdowns have have been modified into a referendum on whether or not we believe in business. And we're seeing. How this disinformation is undercutting our capacity to interfere against the actual virus. And so you know. We're seeing these things touching each other in a really profound way in unfortunately a really deadly now. That's all true but here are a couple of Counter example so in the country of saudi arabia. Something like eighty percent of people are on twitter. But there's one hundred percent compliance. Why because even though they have a lot of viral media they have a dictatorship a kingdom and when the king when must not the king is the crown prince says. Do something that thing is done. So that's that's one example. Another is for all the horrors of social media and the ability to spread. Disinformation of course also spreads information. And there it's weird that we have the pejorative form of information distribution but not a positive for them. So let's call it accurate information and if you add up all of the benefits Telling people where the vaccine is available. Getting people information at a moment's notice. Would we know as much about the variant. If we weren't connected for instance through social media. I wonder if the net net as the business guys would say of the information we live in has made our response to the pandemic better or worse as a whole if we were living in a time of three networks and a morning and afternoon newspaper. Do you think that fewer people would be dying of the corona virus. I'll be honest with you. I mean it. It is really hard to decouple. Just because the information ages is in this moment in which we live is so fundamental to a lot of the other advent of technologies that have facilitated our response to the pandemic. But i would. I would say this that the very example that you gave us with saudi arabia and or even china demonstrates that the ability to drive a singular message is really still quite important that being said i would rather live in a country. Everyday that gives me the right to free thought and an exposition. Even though that means that we need to have the responsibility that comes with those rights to use those things appropriately. And i think what we're trying to do at this point is to ask where the balances i'm not gonna lie to you though right. I actually think that in. So many ways our response to this pandemic even if it's if it's facilitated a substantial amount more information has actually been far less clear and far more noisy because of the the way social media works to proliferate all kinds of information and especially the bad kind and so unfortunately we have we have. We have misused the rights that we have and failed the responsibilities that come with those rights in this moment. I do think that we have a responsibility to step back and ask what is it about our information system and the incentives that drive social media usage and social media corporations. That have taken away the kind of clarity that we would have wanted in a time of national crisis like this one and again. It's not just the public health crisis it's also the backdrop of political crisis and you saw these crash into each other as well right and we saw that come to a crash on on january. Sixth that our nation's capital in the form of a riotous insurrection. But for the year before that it was a full on bolt from basic scientifically driven public communication around a very deadly disease that was being communicated amongst amongst us and so we really are. I think in a moment where there is a crisis of communication. And i think we have failed to act responsibly. Around the rights we have around our ability to communicate and say what we believe and say what we think do the people who do communication public health communication. I know that there are challenges in the developing world where people are reticent to get injections vaccines and. It is known that you have to explain. Perhaps to the people of cameroon the benefit of being treated for a bulla. But i don't know that it was conceived that in the developed world quote unquote in america. That that same kind of hand holding and rebuttal of disinformation would ever occur. It seems to be totally different skill. Set of the people who are in the public health field in the united states one. They couldn't event as a patriot as recently as a decade ago. Yeah i'm gonna say a couple things about that. My i think one. This pandemic has forced us to deal with the reckoning around the the fact that for a long time we had confused wealth with reason and enlightened thought and our can agree. Sorry to interrupt. God bless you for saying that. Because i can't agree with you more. I get so upset. When people say things like in a country like america in america the richest country in the world and then they talk about an example of the pandemic vaccine rollout being watched or the pandemic running rampant. And it angers me to think exactly what you just put into words that we've conflicted wealth with something else but sorry to interrupt. Go ahead no. I agree entirely. I tell you. I grew up between my suburban childhood home in southeast michigan suburbs of detroit and alexandria egypt. Where my father emigrated from. And i'll tell you that those folks are just as smart and just as thoughtful as we are here. The difference is access to resources and a lot of a lot of that is because of our countries on policies that have robbed a lot of those societies of the means of being able to build out the kind of economy that we take for granted here. The second point though is that i think this is going to be a moment where public health communicators really have to step back and take stock of the information system in which we are operating because in the past the assumption in public health communication. Was you just need to share the facts right and you need to give people the data and people make really smart decisions and the problem right. Is that unfortunately the facts and the data are just not enough. We have to give people the context. We have to be able to put our facts in our data in a narrative and we have to get a lot better at defensive communication from people who want to systematically inform as a function of their own need or want to profit on the back of that and so. I don't think public health was really quite equipped with the ability and the nuance communication capacity to take on this issue in real time in the way that this pandemic has forced us. And i think those two issues right arkansas of wealth and reason and the failure of the public health community to communicate as in nuanced way about this pandemic in inspiring way. I think have have in some respects sort of forced a real moment of pause. And i think for a long time. We'll be thinking about what this means for us as a society and what we will take for us to fortify the public's health in the future right and on the one hand you could excuse public health communicators. We've never had a pandemic like this in terms of the medicine but also in terms of the president who was president then and the way we communicate. However i would say if you look at the other scientific discipline of climate change. People have studied a lot about communicating about climate change. And that thing of hey. If we just put the facts out there the facts people will attend to the facts and people will recognize. What are the true facts. It doesn't work doesn't work nearly as well as we needed to work. And it's not as if you know by now by twenty twenty one. We realized this and there are different schools of thought about how to communicate about climate change. That aren't just a recitation of facts and yet when it came to this no less an emergency but it more acute emergency. No one seems to have learned the lesson in that somewhat related discipline. Yeah i think you're absolutely right. And i say this of course as a public health communicator. Right i know. I'm asking you these yes i am. I'm not trying to take my my colleagues to the woodshed. I'm just. I'm saying that all of us. I think we all need to spend some time in be thinking about it. But you're right. I think that is a really important parallel in. He goes to show the fact that unfortunately from disciplined perspective we in public health have done two things poorly number one. We have not taken the time to step outside of our own issue area and take notes about the approach that we we take two things like climate change or other forms of risk communication and second. I think we have failed to account. And i would say this also about about climate change communicators to we have failed to account for the changing trend in polarization and the way that politicisation of basic facts has changed the way that people are either receptive to or completely opposed to the information that you're sharing on that second point around political communication. I actually think that you know as we take this. These issues on work going to have to balance speaking in political ways lower case political ways while still trying to politicize basic fact because of the way that politics has almost like a tidal wave engulfed engulfed every aspect of public communication and discussion. We'll do you do that. I mean i don't disagree with your take on things but your positioned within crooked media. Your i don't know if your member of the dsa. But i have seen material that they put out where they say. You're a friend of the dsa. I wouldn't want to tell you not to be political. The politics are what affect change. But do you a pit. Them is decoupling political. Talk from medical talk as a really good point mike. I'll be honest with you right. Is someone who has run for office in the past and thinks about my work in very political ways. I try to do both on the one hand write. A lot of these debates have become politicized and one has to deal with the facts as they are around these issues and recognize that unless we're waging politics that does try to win the future for the facts and for the science then we really risk losing and on the other side. It's also being honest about about what's happening on the stage and saying you know. I really wish these weren't political debates and yet if the question is whether or not we believe in science or if the question is about whether or not we want to save the world from the consequences of are burning stuff that comes out of the ground into the lungs of our kids or if the question is about whether or not we want to protect people from a raging pandemic. I'm going to go with a vision for a world where we are in fact doing those things and yet and yet. I wish that we had consensus about these issues. And so it's it's almost an impossible. Circumstance to be engaged in other side. Right of the of the political discussion is rejecting basic fact the the process of science and the notion that we need to protect the earth and protect people from deadly things that are that are being driven by our own behavior. Then at some point. I'm going to embrace the fact that we need politics. That actually pushes against that in at the other side right. I really do wish it wasn't political. I really do wish we didn't talk about these things and political ways and my own engagement with politics is in recognizing that because we were not engaging them in political ways we saw a systematic box lied when in fact we needed aggressive movement forward on everything from investing in public health infrastructure to taking on climate. Change i've interviewed canadians and people who are expert in how they do things in canada and what they tell me is that it's just first of all. The climate is different in terms of politics. There's no equivalent of fox with that sort of reach and influence but basically the public health officials there are so divorced it's j- it would be confusing to most canadians to think about public health and public health communications in a political context in the same way that i don't know what functionary of the united states something like the red light cameras or you know the way. The roads are constructed in the united states is being explicitly political. I do know we get to that but it seems like there's a pretty good lesson just across our border that handled this pandemic lot better. Yeah mike that's a really good point. I do want to call out the meta politics here though. Right beyond the issues of the day in the conversations that we're having about them it's important to step back and ask why it is and how it is that all of these issues became political in the first place and a lot of that has to do with the fall in the way of the firewall between our politics and our economics. The minute you allow major corporations to spend money shaping the electoral plainfield and lobbying politicians. The things that they do become political and when the things that they do are at core driving everything from the failure of our public health when it comes to meet and beverages or a high high fructose corn syrup to accelerating climate change when it comes to oil and gas and their immense lobbying and electioneering capacity that at some point right. These issues will become political. And so i think you're right. Like i wish i could. We could go back and revealed that firewall. But that's what we've been talking about in the first place and so in some respects what those of us who believe in science and believe that we have a responsibility to protect people from the consequences of profiting off of things that ultimately hurt us. Then we are now fighting on two fronts. One is to say these aren't actually political issues at all. These are just issues of public health and on the other is to say we'll now that this firewalls broken. You've made them political than we have to wage a politics that at least protects us in the short term and hopefully protect us in the long term. While we try and rebuild that wall it becomes almost impossible battle of battles to fight and on the other end of it. You've got you know folks who are making a ton of money on a system that we know is accelerating potentially the collapse of the earth and certainly in the short-term accelerating the poor health of our neighbors our loved ones in our society. Tomorrow dr l. said we'll be back and we will talk about the usual attacks on big pharma that gain lots of applause political rallies usually but does that change given how big pharma is addressing our problems and delivering thaksin's to fight the pandemic. We also engage in the all but impossible discussion of disentangling race from wealth when it comes to vaccination priorities. That's tomorrow the gist. This podcast is brought to you by.

He embodied the title. Public servant shields worked for dwight eisenhower's council of economic advisers. He was nixon's labor secretary. Director of ownby and treasury secretary he was an intellectual and academic he was associate professor of industrial relations at mit and then a professor and eventually dean of industrial relations at the university of chicago. Business school also. It was a tenured professor at stanford before he even became secretary of state therefore he joked. I really don't need the revolving door of post government employment because pretty sweet gig. Actually those are in his words. The we gig part because it should be noted. According to an obituary in the financial times quote he was not a charismatic man and scarcely uttered a memorable phrase. Well i do think he did many memorable things and memorable things said about him like when the chair of the senate foreign relations committee joe biden said during confirmation in nineteen. Eighty-two after reagan's first secretary of state alexander haig step down amid turmoil you are at least as qualified intellectually politically morally in every other way as any man has ever sat before us Before any of our committees but to get to the specific question. It's either a structural problem. We have or serious personality problem to prevent you from thinking that i'm engaged in a hagiography of schultz. No this was quite imperfect on some policies he stalwartly defended indeed implemented the reagan administration support of south africa's apartheid regime. Here he is arguing with once again. Biden this from later. I think nineteen eighty-six biden citing historical parallels between apartheid and the united states history and faulting the administration for continuing their support of the ruling minority white party in south africa. And then you say. Fourth principle is that our policies and those of our allies insure them expand political liberties in the post apartheid south africa. Mister secretary because i come from the civil rights movement in this country we sat there and we heard the same arguments the same exact argument. We cannot impose from the north a solution on the south. They must work out their problems. Black and white together. We cannot as a nation expose them to the economic ravages. The will come. We must consider what will happen after segregation before we eliminate segregation my lord and finally that is not an accurate. Let me let me. Because we don't say we have to consider what happens after the right before we ended we have said again and again and again that it's an abhorrent system and i can use it needs to end you say four principles i assume that equally important you say ford. Our policy and those of our allies should ensure and expand a political liberties in the post apartheid. South africa are complex by an expansion mechanistic opportunities. My god worry about that when it comes. These people are being crushed. And we're sitting here with the same kind of rhetoric. The same thing we heard we heard go-slow we heard we have to take care of the problem afterward we heard we have. You are totally misconstruing. The testimony that. I gave read furthermore senator. Let me say that. I hate to hear a senator of the united states calling for violence. I'm not called hate to hear an administration. The secretary of state to act on a morally abhorrent point. I hate to hear this country. I'm ashamed at this country. It went on for a little while longer. Biden wavering around paper getting indignant schultz calmly asserting that a cautious way forward was the only way that was a fiery exchange on that one. Bite them one history has shown. I said it wasn't a hagiography bullets. Also note that schultz made great strides in most areas of foreign policy. He was a skilled treaty. Negotiator could argue. He helped rid the world of more nuclear weapons. Then any man who has ever lived and he could be seen as the architect of the foreign policy. That at least coincided and i'm going to say actually correlated to the end of the ussr again. It's not a hagiography. It's not even an orbit. That's not why i wanted to talk about him. Because i was thinking of george shultz not in terms of a eulogy but a jumping off point as bloomberg columnist. Nathan bernstein wrote quote the death of american statesman. George p shultz at one hundred just before the second impeachment trial of donald trump. Well it's hard not to see it as a symbol for everything wrong. With today's republican party shields was a good example of how a reasonably healthy party operates. Parties need professionals people who actually know how to make things work. After an election is one and healthy parties look out for and promote talented people experienced necessarily produce success but inexperience is a serious obstacle to any administration and beyond inexperience is now bernstein. I would add competence. You need to avoid incompetence not literally cultivated. I was thinking about trumpism. And remembering hearing an analysis of afghanistan and the popularity of the taliban and this person was saying you know the taliban might have a good message to appeal to the people. They certainly play to the people's resentment but all the things they stand for all the things they promise will not make them effective leaders the return to the thirteenth century caliphate. Great doesn't keep the water filtration plant running adherence to a strict sharia law a-. Crackdown on kite. Flying might get cheered. Doesn't help the electrical grid from falling apart when all you are is anger accusation. There is no appetite for actually running a country no capacity to do so either by the way that also works with hotels. Golf courses. an underrated aspect of the failure of trumpism was that it necessarily pushed out competent. People who could actually deliver material improvement to the masses. I'm talking about material improvement. Not the salving of psychic wounds. I actually don't find it. Accurate to compare trumpism to any ideology of the past like conservatism or neo conservatism urban populism. We're doing trumpism favor when we call it an ideology it's not an idea for running a government. It's just a free floating free of governmental solution emotion. And in this way. George shultz offers another countervailing. Argument don't use government as a means of self-expression self expressions important to people. People can still cut loose break out of the box. Be a bit rebellious. They should do so in the private realm to this end. I submit to you my favorite fact about george p shultz and his end. The former secretary of state had a tiger tattoo on his ass. Go wild limit up. Get down with your bad self no problem or maybe a bit of a problem because i for one being in possession of the fact that george shultz had a tiger tattoo on his ass could think of nothing else other than george p shultz is tiger tattoo that ties with him as well. But now i do think of this. I think that george shultz was a public servant through his last days. He performed his final act of public service. Reminding us all now of an america where both parties were competent and the asses of our leaders were lightly reported on not their defining characteristic. And that's it for today. show. Shane roth gist producer. Want you to know that you know my super bowl coverage did lack the point that the key the chiefs game was there. Banged up offensive line thus allowing shaq barrett and jason pierre. Paul to harass mahomes. All day. she's been going on and on about how. How could i not mention that. To which just producer. Margaret kelly says that mahomes confusion wasn't so much about tampa's blitz packages but rather the question. How the hell did snooky get involved in that mountain. The norah o'donnell mountain ad. That's one. I'm talking about ends with snooky. Snooky gets the kicker montgomery executive producer of slade. Podcast is like old enough to remember. George shultz and therefore i shall predict that on more than one occasion. She thought when hearing the name. George shultz wait. Why is the guy behind peanuts. Negotiating arms deal with the jordanians. The gist. I don't know if it's an irony coincidence or an idiot you see on my part but i do find it notable that the man with a tiger but tattoo also looked very much like bert lahr cowardly lion.

"The following program contains graphic material including offensive language. Discretion is advised Sandler Jill Questioning Authority daily. That could be the very reason why you is upset. They do the music. Venue here. Beneath my boys is from a broadcast. Sound Library that I pay for the seats. So I've met your copy right violation right here and now here's Nicole hello and welcome to A. Friday. You heard the guy at the very beginning of the show who says Viewer discretion advised our listener discretion advised. I guess because you know it's radio Keep that in mind today. If you are offended easily you might WanNa go away for the next hour because frankly with the way. The news has been the last week or two with between the. I was GONNA say the Ebola outbreak. The Corona virus outbreak The stock market crashing and Donald Trump. It's Kinda Shit show so I thought today we could use a few laughs. So if you're watching on Youtube you see in the studio the one and only Boca Brittany some of us and well. We're GONNA start off with a comedy. Bit has nothing to do with politics but it's one of my favorites from Brit. In fact the first time I heard this was on her show. The Brits Summer Shown we'll tell you what how you can listen to that in a few minutes and it took me so by surprise because it was the last thing I expected so we will begin to show like that. Enjoy ever use it down all my face out my look every you hear that daily. Natal down. That's my tone going in. And out looping L. can breed weighing on me that wave lamb. I longer iphone. Get stronger every day. I WANNA be your as green down on face when I do my Harry. They sound conscious. Squat DOWN ON BASE. Okay there you go on my face. Voca Brittany somers. Everybody Hi everybody that was. So how are you aware fine? Except that I don't know I haven't had anything published lately so I don't know why you had me on the show today though because in here in a while and it had been too long and frankly I don't know about you but I could use a laugh or two today provide. Yeah so I thought we would do that. I mean there's a lot of news to talk about. We'll get to that but I thought we'd intersperse some comedy and between and we'd maybe open up the phones. Should anyone care to say hello. Phone lines are open nine. Five four eight eight nine six four one O or via skype Nicole. Sandler all one word. Yep feel free to call in. It's going to be very very informal. Show today thank you right. So we are dealing with this corona virus outbreak. And while Brit you don't have a corona virus bit to play we've been told by Mick Mulvaney no other than Mick Mulvaney. Oh I didn't even pull over that that Clip Mick Mulvaney the White House or acting chief of staff. Sorry he's you know he's the acting chief of staff and doesn't want the permanent position you know why because his his official position is head of the Office of Management Budget Owen. Be and that job pays twenty thousand dollars a year more than the White House Chief of staff job so this piece of Shit Keeping the higher salary while. Because that's all these people care about is money. So what has me about the virus? Most of us. We haven't heard first of all we don't know a lot about it yet and I'm afraid that the people that had killed they're not saying if they woke back up as Ambi- and I'm waiting to hear because there there are lessons on how to survive as Zombie apocalypse are there and it started quite this way. This is how the Zombie Apocalypse started with. Differing differing accounts one is that it came from bats and the other some other kind of animal but either way. It's it's being transferred or was originally transferred from the foreleg type of Visser. In fact there's a report believe it or not on CNN. I did some actual news and doing more news than MSNBC. That's for sure that's the Bloomberg show but they. They said the the animals they were using were rats. Rodents that I've never heard of before. And they skin them alive in and cook them and eat them. There's no I mean. Forget about cleanliness. And it all I can think about is that you know if you buy your meat at Walmart that don't do that. Yeah so so. Cpac going on the conservative political action. Whatever shit show that they have going on and Mick Mulvaney was there. I don't know if this was this morning or yesterday and I'm just GonNa play you about a minute and a half if I can stand it that much but listen to what Mick Mulvaney says about. The Corona virus freshly squeezed was was was was covering hopes of thought it would bring down the president. The reason you're paying so much attention to it is that they think this is going to be what brings all we're talking about it. I got a note today from from from a reporter saying what are you going to do today to calm the markets and really what? I might do today call. The markets is tell people turn their television offered twenty four hours. Oh Jeez that's smart. Listen is it real it absolutely Israel. There's no question about it but you saw the president the other day. The flu is real any particular time. Twenty million people in this country are going to have the flu. The flu kills people. It does this is not a bola worse. I tell you what that means in a sense. It's not SARS it's worth. Why does that when you look at the severity? I'd had enough about monkeypox right exactly. So it's not a bola he's right it's worse but speaking of the Bohla and what in Zaire and made me ill now. The new culinary no evil easy only pool. The doctor says I won't last long these endless song. That was Mick Mulvaney. So there's not a bola yeah I'm looking at a bunch of. I've got a bunch of Boko Brittany Summers of bits that I that I've pulled onto my wallow sound here but you don't have many about healthcare you have many about diseases. I was thinking about that and you know the CDC was never really a concern until this right he's crap came around because he fired everybody. All of the I've got a lot of disease bits. Yeah Oh yeah the bird flu and hey hey we got monkeypox bring those the reason we joked about is because we were confident we had the CDC wanted to job at this guy guts. It was he take away the pandemic. Yeah I everybody his his his reasoning. Here's here's what he said when he was asked about gutting the CDC this is what Donald Trump set something called the C. H. W. H. O. u. A lot about hobbies professionals are critical experience. Paused can get money and we can increase. If we know all the people we know all the question. I asked the doctors before Some of the people we cut. They haven't been used for many many years and if they if we have a native we can get them very quickly and rather than spending the money and I'm a business person I don't like having thousands of people around when you don't need them when we need. We can get back very quickly for instance. We're bringing some people in tomorrow. That are already in this. Great government that we have and very specifically for this We can build up very very quickly and we've already done that. I mean we really have built up. We have a great staff and using MIC-. I'm doing that. Because he's in the administration and he's very good at doing what he does and good at this. He he only facilitated the biggest. Hiv outbreak in Indiana when he was governor and then when it got really bad he enlisted the help of prayer. It'll be interesting to see what a talk show host can do this. Oh Yeah Oh yeah you know what? Let's do it while we're while we're here. We may as well before we get to the real comedy. Let's get to this stuff. It makes us sad and talk. The News I all right. We'll go along. We'll do it live fucking does it really does thank you bill all right. So welcome to disinformation in the USA. Donald Trump and his sycophantic cronies and his administration or doing their best to stop Americans from worrying about the increasing threat from the corona virus. Saying things like there's no reason to be panicked about it but when I mentioned the flu I said Actually I. I asked the various doctors. I said this is just like flu because the flu. And this is very unusual and it is a little bit different but in some ways it's easier in some ways it's a little bit tougher but we have it so well under control. We have done a very good job. We really have done a very good job. I'm really actually. The president is not doing much to assuage fears. He's joining the opposite. Instead of turning the spotlight over to the experts like doctors. He's taken it upon himself to talk about the virus outbreak in cast doubt on the judgment of US government scientists that there will be an outbreak of some magnitude in the United States trump contradicted members of infectious disease team yesterday. Did you hear what he did yesterday? Where in the midst of this? The stock market's crashing the biggest single day drop in history. Do you know what he did yesterday. He had two meetings in the Oval Office. One with an actress. I never heard of an dean. Cain remember he'll superman for man. Who are starring in a show in a play. A new play where these to play Peter. Struck and Lisa page crab the F. B. I. Agents Donald Trump enjoys. You know making fun of what because they texted that. He's a dangerous man so he met with these two actors and then at another meeting with Fox flunkies diamond and silk. Because you know he's doing the hard work. I don't know who they're the two black women go on Fox and friends and you know because they're black. They're they speak for all black people. Don't you know yeah? So so. Trump was doing that? Mike Pence chaired his first meeting of the Corona Virus Task Force. One day after being given the assignment and he seemed more concerned about Muslim the experts and informing the public. Obviously an attempt preventing conflicting statements. Like what happened on Thursday. When the president said that the virus could get worse it could get better in the days and weeks ahead. But nobody knows yeah. That's brilliant they're contradicting Dr Anthony. Fauci one of the country's leading experts on viruses and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease so at the meeting with pence. Yesterday Dr She described the seriousness of the public health threat facing Americans saying that quote this virus has adapted extremely well to human species and noting that appear to have a higher mortality rate than flew. In fact we know. The flu has a mortality rate of between point one and point two percent that's one tenth of one percent. Basically this corona virus is up between two and three percent huge difference but of course you know they don't know that Fao she said we are dealing with a serious virus and after that meeting. Dr Falcone told associates at the White House has instructed him not to say anything else without their clearance every statement. That's Dr This head of Infectious Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control. Every statement. He wants to make. He's got a clear first with Mike Pence of why may add to that today that he was scheduled to do all the Sunday morning show all the Sunday morning shows and they cancelled them all. But but Mike Pence went on. Sean Hannity Show last night where he lied to the American people again. He said quote the president's been clear we want all hands on deck and then he said the risk of the spread of the corona virus in the United States of America remains low and then added. That's according to all of our experts. I think he meant Dick. Not because you know what the technical term about that statement is don't you? What little sheet that exactly now. This on top of Wall Street. This reaction Wall Street took its sharpest. Plunge in an already terrible week yesterday with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling by one thousand one hundred and ninety point nine five points four point four percent capping its fastest. I've ever from a record high into a ten percent. Plus Correction Nasdaq fell by four point. Six percent all three of the main. Us indexes posted their biggest single day. Point drop ever and then today. Let's see this morning in our after. The market's open markets opened. Seven hundred points down an hour later. It was about a thousand points down. Let's see where it is now Dow Jones. Where are we know? Oh down six. Seventy eight twenty one. Yeah yeah that's all. I feel badly for anybody. Who's got money in the stock market? Thankfully I'm not one of them so go forever. Happy Day where free free fall in good as that. America Ameritrade commercial is didn't help them. Not I guess not now. Despite Donald Trump's assurance says that he's doing a great job. The truth is and this story is the Downing. The administration's actions have likely helped the virus spread throughout the country. Here's what happened. A whistle blower on Wednesday filed a complaint saying that the Department of Health and Human Services quote improperly deployed more than a dozen workers without proper virus prevention training or gear. They went in their street clothes and met the first Americans evacuated for move on China. After the the the outbreak started there. According to the lawyers representing the whistleblower the workers were then just sent on their merry way. They weren't tested for the virus. There was no follow up on them. They just went and met with these people who had likely been exposed to it and then they were sent off to go back to work to go out into the public to get on airplanes and travel around the country now the whistle blower said that she has since been pressured to move to a new job since reporting the matter to others in the department including people in in Alexandra's office. He's the secretary of Health and Human Services this is astounding absolutely. When I saw the first I saw Chris Hayes yesterday posted something about this and it it just let me see if I can find his original thread here. Here's what he wrote. So here's what happens to be the chain of events. The trump administration repatriated infected Americans over the objections of the CDC Health and Human Services then sent federal workers to interact with the infected population without adequate training or protection. Those workers then went out into the public with no monitoring or testing regime in place and now the first. Us contracting case has appeared right near one of the air force bases were all this happened and when someone had health and human services raised alarms about all this she or he was criticized for hurting morale and then ordered to another position or be fired. This is frightening. This is the height of ineptitude of fucked up Adminis- of Holy Shit. We have people who have not a clue about what they're doing in charge. This is the inmates running the asylum. They single handedly talk. You know of a potential outbreak and spread it all over. The country heard about the planes. What about the plane might have this a little bit wrong but there were fourteen infected people in China? Yes okay so okay. Yes so so when they did that two planes to finally evacuate all these people off of not from China. This was from that that cruise ship in Japan. I believe and so they had a couple of hundred people fourteen of them they knew were infected the CDC said do not bring those people back here keep them in quarantine over their health and human services overruled them and put them on one of these cargo planes where they were separated from the rest of the passengers who so far had not been infected by a tarp a tarp. A police have plastic separating the part of the plane where the fourteen infected people were from the rest of them plane. It's it was a big cargo plane. Forty seven no car. No carpeting. No because it was a cargo plane so they just put seats in it and a tarp to separate the section where the infected people were sitting from the rest of them and again. Cdc's said don't do that health and human services that we're GONNA do whatever the fuck we want and enjoy your case of Corona virus and enjoy your case of corona virus. And enjoy your case of Corona Wireless. Just insane so yeah. That's that's the basic gist of it. I mean nothing. New has happened other than this administration continues gas lighting America. They have made the situation worse while telling us. Don't worry everything's under control. Nothing to see here move right along. Let's it's unprecedented. Everything's unprecedented everything. Like like you've never see like you've never seen the. We've never seen this kind of douche battery an asshole in and what it is the people. Donald Trump just knows the best people the smartest people he surrounded himself with with the best people. And it's you know it's the brainpower Brit. I think it's all about brain power free Bro.

That was a few years old. But don't work well. I can retract that the finding open tracks and I shouldn't after Norah O'Donnell God I used to actually like nor O'Donnell I thought she was bright and she's another former model of course Erin Burnett she Was just a model then journal now. She's in a news spokes model by the way Erin Brunette hair alone. She started out with great hair. And now you see every day. It's different air streaked it's blonde. It's burned she. She doesn't know what to do with it. And if you'll notice when they do a live shot of her da they got the fan going. Oh of course does a fan over I. I use it just to keep some coon. Yeah it's very hot in here. We're in Florida of course but but you have. You haven't done a whole lot of new topical stuff but look you did send something over the other day and again. If you're offended easily turn turn the radio go go away come back next week disclaimer. Okay we live in south Florida. We do we live in south Florida. We've been through this a number of times. And after what Bernie said which was what. Obama says exactly what Obama said. You give the Cuban population down in south Florida. The slightest thing the slightest thing they're laying down on ninety five in front of cars. Yes they lose to the old. The older generation Cubans not not the new now because the younger Cubans like Bernie but the older the older Cubans are apoplectic side themselves. Because Oh my God because Bernie Sanders sad that Castro actually in enacted a literacy program when he came into power do you know and and they freaked out and wet nuts. He's a communist and all that so brick gave us this. We interrupt regularly scheduled programing for the following. Sound the sound you're about to hear. Is that of the Cuban community in south Florida and their reaction to what Bernie Sanders said. This is only a sound now the zones of Cubans in south Florida. Would they hear Barack Obama? Say the same thing. This has been a sound of the angry Cubans in south Florida. We now return to your regularly scheduled program thank you very much and that goes back to Kennedy. Yeah but they still hate. He's been dead. What sixty years that they don't care? They're pissing on his grave and don't care they hate Kennedy every Democrat since Kennedy. They hate down there and I hate to say. Oh by the way I'm going off track but I got some really disappointing news list. I don't know what the lgbt Caucus of south Florida. Yeah endorsed. Pete Buddha judge no no he ranked real low on really okay Bloomberg. Oh my God why they watch t. v. because because Michael Bloomberg has the Closet Game. No they watch. Tv ALL DAY. They describe any research any reading any history. Look up the voting records of these people were kind of mayor he was and I got a story. Oh my things fell off and my headphones too. But the The Wall Street the protestors that were occupy Wall Street by Wall Street. Let's let's find some of those other. Only one show is the one responsible for evicting the protesters from Zuccotti Park Guy Park and they were using the the gas and the Mason also interface. What a great guy but the the caucus down here the gay caucus down here in Florida. Because they watch they watch. Tv All daytime TV so they think his running makes going to be the insurance general. Call the general. That's what they base their knowledge on television right. That's and that's really sad. And that's how Michael Bloomberg thinks. He's going to going to buy the election and you know if not for the debates. He might have been able to but the minute he goes on those debates and shows what he's made of and he's a real stand-up that what did he say about the. Maybe I said a joke that they did not like because because I'm defending myself here. Borscht belt you map right. Can you imagine him doing? Stand up in the boys. God Oh my God well wait wait but we got some some from some Bloomberg humor like one here Holden who also say because just since I have the floor for a second that I really am surprised that all of these fellow contestants up here I guess would be the right word for it even. Nobody pays attention to the clock. I'm surprised they show up because I would have thought after I did. Such a good job and beating them last week that they'd be a little bit afraid to do that and there was another one but you know I gotta follow. Bloomberg is mayor of New York. You declared war on obesity you ban trans fats from restaurants and you tried to do the same with large sugary drinks. So if you become president will you push those policies on the national level as well? Well I think what's right for New York City isn't necessarily right all the other cities. Otherwise you'd have a naked cowboy in every city and speak in a naked cowboys. I went went to a nude beach but I never went again. 'cause I didn't know where to put my call keys. I finally got the room shot and I needed her Michael. He's a panic. I like Mike Mike Mike Bloomberg. He's a good fan of the corporations. He's all about the corporations And and you know this is why we like Bernie Sanders because Bernie will hold the corporations accountable for the lawlessness West. Now's your chance to rise above the law for a fistful of only sixty dollars. New INCORPORATES GONNA kill you. Sorry I'M INC. Thanks to your apathy. The fourth amendment and your civil rights have been abolished corporations. Now have the rights of an individual jewelry. Or this you'll must die. Excuse me invasion of privacy such as reading private email tapping someone's phone grand larceny false imprisonment child rape even murder your above it all. If Iran cooperated be unaccountable incorporate. Now always eight hundred. Do you like my new suit and tie. Well do ya. Punk a follow up. I did follow a bit too. That sit on my face you did. Yeah it's in your thing it's in my thing APPs. Show those fucked up my joke when they go combine which one talk show. Those jump goes by beats I asked. I appreciated aggregated with Oleo shock but reits are asking us net margarine to help slide him. And it's easier that way once my ecstasy to last so don't pull them out do us.

That's kind of funny. But you know those those CPAC people. They're good Christians aren't they? I told you today's not for the faint at heart if you're offended easily just going back through. Abc Watch the finger up there to know what Christians do for five while bond the league. Bridges new book pasty from the Fast Tailing back over only allowed A PAD while leaning out there gun talk to know. Christians do boost Polish on the tailgate of the trump pillow. Premium Super Ecstatic. Eat and sit back down again. In November twelfth live aboard up the smile off Tokyo. Nope NOT GONNA do that. I hated that's Iowa. Oh so we just ended like that. I just put the Brits Summer Show Dot Com okay on the Chiron so people who find this on Youtube where to find you Because I didn't Prepare Brittany. Summer's on facebook and and Brit Summers show on twitter. Is that what it is? You don't ever tweet but isn't there because I go to know Osceola all day. Why should I argue out now? For those. Who Don't know Britain. I met through a radio. We're we're both creatures who come from the world of radio unfortunately to world that's died and Brit has been a South Florida radio fixture for decades. She worked on the Neil Roger. Show the legendary Neil Roger Show And so we. We actually connected years later. We didn't. We never worked together although we tried once we we actually put together. A Demo for clear channel with a with another friend is somebody. Neal's former producer. Jorge Rodriguez and we were going to be a SPIC. A check and a chick with that's what it was and it was a good show. It was I thought it would have been great. But they for whatever reason didn't didn't want it But you've done a number of bits about radio throughout the years. You know clear channel that radio station that we applied at was owned by clear channel now known as I Heart Media Code I fart. I call it. I hurt media or I hate media whichever way you want to do it. But before they changed their name. There were clear channel. Everybody's saying remember back with post. I said when I grow up. That's run by greedy. Horford Woolsey only about the bottom line. Not You power because e Daddy Bush's read today is gone without you. Don We take it out by now. Eight thousand and Man and get your brain Perhaps again for interview Thomas Dyer. Oh well thank you. Not that he heard me. I mean I had. I had a whopping ten minutes with him and I implored him to do the right thing here. You know he kept say well. Of course I see a path to the nomination. If I didn't I wouldn't be in it. So he blows twenty two million dollars on South Carolina advertising alone for no reason and he may place third. Did you read Thom? Hartmann's he did OP? Ed Directed at Thomson. One year ago. I have it send it to you and it was one year ago when clear channel. I'm sorry I heart radio went went bankrupt and for the time and they went for sale for a billion two or something and he could have easily done that. He's got that under his couch cushion. And if you read that it's beautifully written but obviously the word didn't get across our well and incidentally Stephanie Miller talked to did she say the same pretty much right but he says he's he's deaf to it but that's pretty endemic of all democratic leadership. They don't WanNa know or they never knew about the telecom act right no of course not only candidate running right now is Bernie. Who knows what the Telecom Act were? Maybe maybe the Communications Act of Nineteen ninety-six for those who don't know something put through by Bill Clinton that basically said there used to be ownership limits. One company could own actually. I was like a maximum of seven. Am Seven FM seven TV stations around the country? They did away with the ownership limits and so they made it so that not only were the was unlimited. One company could own as many as they want. They could own up to eight in a market. So where are they used to be? They could seven radio stations around the country. Now they own seven in one city alone and they do which was the case with clear channel here in south Florida. And that's where I started all my lowry. Mays humor because back in the nineties. They took about five years for it to take effect so in January. Two thousand one. And you'll remember this. That was their first big. Layoff one hundred thousand people. Janu Air America was an yet it was four hundred thousand got laid off January. Wow as soon as Bush took office. Yeah I did what yet this year last eight just did it again. Does genuine right or it was actually was agenda. Might have been January. Yeah they they fired. Thousands of people around the country Sherrod Brown to his credit called them out because his favourite disc jockey in Ohio was fired. And he's like what the hell happened. And then he learned that like two thousand people were fired where clear talent and the the euphemisms they use with. Something like everybody's going to be. It wasn't relocated. It some other euphemistic term that I get some bullshit nonsense euphemism for being fired. They're going to be re located or some nonsense. They weren't relocated to the unemployment line and replaced with artificial intelligence. Well that's boys tracking. That's one person doing the job of twenty back in the old days. When I got into radio there was a program director music director. There was a promotions manager. There was a a marketing director. And then there were air talent. Somebody for each day part right. That was and that was at one radio station. In each radio station would have all those positions and now in a cluster which is what it's called with one company owning seven or eight radio stations in a city. It's the cluster. You might have one group. He D One group Music Director. A couple of air staff who voice track numerous radio stations? There's a handful of people running in S. Seven radio stations in town so the the jobs have been gutted completely drive across country. And no matter. What radio station. You're listening to whatever the calls are you hearing the same exact thing. It's a big megaphone. It is and they have one person so clear. Channel employs a handful of disc jockeys who get their logs music logs from station. Say Half dozen stations around the country and they sit in a studio and they read the brakes and then they click a button it uploads to that station and then they move onto the next so that there are no live personalities in whatever city you might be listening to your local radio station at so when there's a big news event like a gas leak or or a water main break. There's nobody there to talk about. It and the best was the week. When Michael Jackson died it was a Friday afternoon and all these stations across the country went through the weekend with no mention of Michael Jackson dying. Because they're all everything was voice tracked and they were already in the hand by the time. The news broke. Well I got to tell you about a funny thing happened to me on the way to presidential gala at the Democratic Club. Oh boy okay and it's and it ties in with right. I'm standing. You know my goal far now we should say both is a hell of a lot more plugged into the local Democratic Party scene here in south Florida than I am. I tried to go to a couple of those local democratic clubs and I just I feel so out of place park. Wilton manors club is on fire. Good Okay but the women's Clubs. There's just fell apart really lack of enthusiasm. How concerned but but we're in Broward county so everybody has the false. I just need to do a shout out real. I'm sorry to interrupt you but oh solid number five in the youtube chat room just Donated sixty nine dollars in honor of yes and I gotTa thank you Youtube de Monetize me last month right and and so you had to wait a minute. I had to wait a month before I could reapply for monetization so I replied and sure enough. I get a congratulatory email. Congratulations you're now a youtube partner. No word about why I was democratized. It because it was bullshit. There was no reason for them to talk. Monetize me so now. The super chat works again and Osama thank you so much. That was very very site. You I really appreciate it crazy. Politics just don't agree with you. That guy said it. W what was his name crystal the guy the GM wd. Which one. I. I don't remember his name but he said you have crazy politics. W IOT that was W. F. T. L. O. That was Jim Hillier. The owner of James Crystal Radio which doesn't exist anymore. He's now in jail somewhere. I think he lost his. But he's like you're you're talented. I'd put you on the air but I can't with your crazy crazy. That's so anybody. Leftover two little high has Joyce Kaufman on Joyce. But we digress. So you were telling your story. You went to the the president's Day gang waiting to get inside Democratic Club no can with you know Mike if you Madam. Okay and we're talking about. We're like still in shock about our for congressman. Ted Deutch. Oh my God who are in limbo. I called Him Staff. God so number yeah talking loudly about. I can't believe this you know we all love Tad. I don't get it and whatever in behind this was a woman. I don't know if I should mention four Edelman a Oh okay. Think I know. She's she's the community outreach director for two okay. She's listening to take it right and I turned to her and I said what is something like Wouldn't you agree I mean? She says she says who she is a local and then she. That's okay. We've been hearing this week. I'm sorry they house nonstop. Yup this is when Bloomberg just kinda entered the safeguarded. Yeah just started and I know what it was because it was right around the second anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which is right down the street and parliament. You and I went over there and the days after the shooting. It was horrible and because Bloomberg is good on guns. I guess that's why Ted. Deutch felt that he should endorse Bloomberg. And what a big fatal mistake. That was well. This takes me back on track to what I was saying earlier about the radio thing I told discussion. I said but you know stuff that if it's possible. I would like to have a private audience with Ted. Not In relation to the Bloomberg. Endorsement wanted discuss with him. The Telecom Act okay. I'd like to just sit down because he was probably still in college through Nineteen ninety-six. Well he wasn't in college. He's not that young. I was working in La Radio when that happened. I mean like I said he might have just been Florida legislature. What you can bet. He never heard of the ninety. Six Telecom. Democratic leadership has no idea what it is so I would like to sit down and explain it to him. what's going on right and of all. People Bill Clinton himself what the legislation he signed into law Killed his wife off pretty much that gave us Fox News right yellow. It definitely gave us Fox News. It gave us rush. Limbaugh gave us twenty four seven. Hey Talk Right wing. Hate Radio Yeah so anyway. I'll sit down to the other thing. I wanted to discuss Speaking of Park land when that happened. And we talked about this on this show but there was nothing on the radio now dead now. Nothing because they don't because they're not local because nobody broadcast locally anymore even print here because the first news bureau onsite when that happen was the Guardian. Wow not the sun-sentinel right. Which is the British paper. Of course. Well thank God? They have an office here. If you want to take calls. It'd be great. Well yeah people. The phone lines are open. Nine five four eight eight nine six four one O or Skype to Nicole Sandler in the meantime. I'm here's another radio. Diddy all of us here at clear channel are working nonstop to collect every radio station on earth so that you can hear one clear message on Iheartradio now that we redefined anemic point three to be a big ratings number. Bain capital in management agreed. We need more right-wing hacks in a modernized music on the air. It's are firmly held belief with our dicks verbally held in our hands that lists is what the management of public demands in celebration of the Joe. Herbals playbook clear channel and Premiere Management would like to express their I heart felt perception of the American listening audience. Long as your mom. Jensen Kooks and gates. He's known told you it was going to be offensive today. Yeah so there you go see people. Don't call and we're going to be moving. Progressive Voices is moving to tune in so. Hopefully we'll be much more stable platform yuan here double audio anymore. You won't hear that already more a sensibly. This is what we're told the move is supposed to be happening now. So that's why they're uploading double things so that goes both servers and hopefully by the time we are back on the air on Tuesday. We'll be on our new home once. That's complete then. We can get the ball rolling to move the live show to five eastern once. We're live on progressive voices and the Stream doesn't die every five minutes. Hopefully then that'll be more more amenable to taking phone calls. Maybe you know okay anyway like like I said on my show I could do. Wow that was loud. Okay let's Let's see WHO's calling. Hi Who's this? Hello Oh it would help. If I turn you up there you are. It's proud scale from Alabama right. I'd proud right. I'm talking from Alabama and I am talking about Michael Bloomberg and unfortunately I think he's going to do well particularly in the deep South or at during Super Tuesday and unfortunately he has hired big political operatives inside the minority community I suspect he might have hired a former vice chair in the ALABAMA POLITICAL PARTY. So Watch out for some shenanigans down south unfortunately yeah now and it should mannequins everywhere. I heard the story from somebody somewhere that they were. Somebody came to their house canvassing for Bloomberg and they somebody on facebook actually posted this. They said there's the guy comes to my house he's out there. Canvassing for Bloomberg was a nice guy. I kind of felt bad but I told him sorry. I'm voting for Bernie and the guy said me too because Bloomberg is paying people who don't support him to go out and and and lobby for him and you know and knock doors but the people aren't for him so thank you for calling proud scalp now. We know everyone's calling. Hi Who's this? Hello Hello Oh I think I just hung up on other person who called. I'm sorry because I'm so not useful. Bloomberg's Florida bag.

The rally update message of the day. President biden has agreed to be interviewed by norah. O'donnell of cbs. Before the big game on sunday now. This is a tradition. Cbs broadcasting super bowl. So cbs gets the interview. I you're humble correspondent have done three super bowl chats in two thousand eleven. Eighteen million folks watched my interview with president obama in two thousand and fourteen rematch. Another eighteen million viewers and in two thousand seventeen thirteen million people tuned in for my chat with president trump. I posted some of the highlights from all three of those interviews on bill o'reilly dot com this weekend. So you can see what i did and compare it to what miss o'donnell will do on sunday. I would be an interesting exercise now. Interviewing a president especially live. I did that with barack obama. We were live before the super bowl game. I don't think the biden interview is going to be live. I could be wrong. But i'll report on it monday. But these are very very difficult interviews because you have to walk a fine line. At least i did between trying to get some news out of it and not being abortion idiot by being contentious and disrespectful to a sitting president so when i interview barack obama i got a lot of males all. I hope you crush him. These were from conservatives. Who didn't like the president. But i wasn't ever going to do that. However spent seventy five percent of both interviews with mr obama asking him about the world the country in a way that was provocative and i threw in my opinion. What about this. What about that. And i did the same thing with donald trump. You may remember the trump interview. Because i said to the new president. Hey what is this. Cozying up to vladimir putin he's a killer whereupon president trump replied. Well we're not perfect ourselves that made world wide headlines that super bowl interview and that was a very interesting reaction that president trump put four. So if i were interviewing joe biden on sunday in the white house and i love going to the white house. It is just thrilling for me to go there. It's fantastic if i were interviewing mr biden. My first question would be mr president. You said in your inaugural address that you want to unite all americans. Yet a day later one day later you wrote a series of executive orders that were progressive and liberal to say the least. How is that going to unite all americans. I'm a simple man. That's a simple question. Do you think nora. We'll ask that. I don't and i'm not disparaging. Nor i've known her for many years and she's a very good journalist but i don't think joe biden is going to be put on the spot on sunday on monday. I will report over these fine radio stations. what happens. I'm bill o'reilly and i approve the message by writing it disagree. I'd like to hear from you bill. It bill o'reilly dot com in a moment.

More Policies Unveiled by the Biden Administration

" <br> Today is Monday, February 8th . Thanks for joining me back here. Once again my name is brad spangler and today we have a bunch of different stories again. Some smaller ones mostly smaller ones. We have a lot of covid stuff. We have a lot more Biden policy issues because he did his first national interview with Norah O'Donnell last Friday and we revisit a story that we did about a month ago about the flu in just the flu season the flu numbers for this year kind of interesting. Well i mean it has to be otherwise. I wouldn't waste your time with it so in any case. Let's jump right back into it. NFL commissioner roger. Goodell wrote a letter to President Joe Biden last week. He offered to President. Joe Biden to use every NFL stadium as a possible mass vaccination. This means that there are thirty. Nfl sites that would be up for grabs now. You might be thinking. Well, wait a second, there are 32 NFL teams but only 30 stadiums. Well, the thing is the jets and the giants share one as do the Los Angeles Rams in Los Angeles Chargers. Some of these are actually already open. They have one in Phoenix for the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta, Baltimore, the Carolina Panthers' stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, , Houston, and Miami New England (which is actually Foxborough, Massachusetts). Speaking of the NFL, the super bowl was yesterday and there were about twenty five thousand fans in attendance. Probably about a third of the usual number. That would be there. And as sort of a tribute to healthcare workers there were seventy five hundred completely vaccinated healthcare workers who showed up as part of that crowd. I saw a lot of chatter on twitter about it's not really honoring healthcare workers if you're creating like a superspreader event and you know i'm not sure how i feel about that. Honestly one thing to keep in mind. Is that the empty seats. They had a bunch of cardboard cutout people. So if you thought it looked packed it really wasn't necessarily as packed as it was looking also. The stadium is outdoors and as we know. Transmission outdoors is nearly well. I wouldn't go that far but it's pretty safe. That said the chances are pretty good. That people were still waiting in line for concessions. Maybe they didn't offer am. I didn't see that or somewhere. Outside of the seats. They were probably in closer. Groups are closer proximity than they were in the stands. And that's kind of what i worry about. But i dunno moving onto other good vaccination news pfizer says that it's been analyzing how they've been making the covid vaccine and they found a number of different ways to improve so that they can make their manufacturing process even quicker. The improvements that they've found should take the manufacturing time from about one hundred and ten days per batch to about sixty days per bench. And that's nearly cutting it in half. That is pretty impressive. The president of the immunization policy in knowledge translation consulting firm said that quote. Nobody's ever produced mRNA vaccines at the scale. So you can bet your bottom dollar the manufacturers learning as the go. I bet you everyday. They run into some vaccine challenged every day. They solve it in that goes into their playbook and quote. Some of these improvements include faster quality control and testing so they probably don't have creed on that adding manufacturing lines in the three plans. Vaccines are made and speeding. Up the time it takes to make the DNA from sixteen days down to about nine or ten days as of this morning at nine am eastern time there have been 42 million covert vaccines administered so actually in people's arms there have been 59 million distributed so over the weekend. The Biden administration announced that it is withdrawing the US from agreements with three Central American countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. These agreements required a lot of people who are trying to get asylum at the US- Mexico border to actually go to these countries in apply there for some reason reading here from the Bloomberg article that I found that secretary of state. Tony Blinken said that the administration intends to work with Central American nations to reduce some of the insecurity and poverty that caused people to flee in the first place while maintaining the security of the us. Border trump was using these agreements to try to discourage people from seeking asylum at all in the us but a ton of critics saw it as the us. Getting out of our responsibility under international law to actually help immigrants who are fleeing persecution trump also started using covert as an excuse to deport almost everyone who came to the border anyway in the last bit of information here about new immigration stuff biden also set up a task force to help reunite families that were separated through trump's family separation policy. There was some news about this. Last week became official over the weekend. Here defense secretary. Lloyd austin has signed a memo that directs his commanding officers and supervisors to do a one day standdown sometime within the next sixty days to try to address the extremism that we're just finding out about or that we are confirming is going on in the armed forces. This means that on that particular day whatever day they choose. These leaders will have to lead discussions on the importance of our oath of office. A description of impermissible behaviors and procedures for reporting suspected or actual extremist behaviors and quote. Lloyd's said in the memo that trainings. Just the first step in quote what i believe must be a concerted effort to better educate ourselves and our people about the scope of this problem and to develop sustainable ways to eliminate the corrosive effects that extremist ideology in conduct tab on the workforce and a recent study that was done by. Npr found that nearly one in five people who have been charged in the capital. Insurrection had some type of military history. This goes along with a two thousand nineteen survey that the military times conducted where they found that thirty six percent of active duty. Readers had seen quote evidence of white supremacist and racist ideologies in the military in just one year before in two thousand eighteen. That same number was only twenty two percent which is still ridiculously high. So now we have over a third in. That was like two years ago. Yeah i think this is gonna take more than one day just a really short follow up story here about our story on fox news getting sued from friday years a sign that maybe i was right in that fox news wasn't actually that proud of their reporting about the 2020 election: on Friday night, Fox Business cancelled the show Lou Dobbs Tonight, which is actually the biggest show on their network into fuel. Remember Lou Dobbs was one of the three hosts that was named in that lawsuit and they still could be far from over for these people who are still lying about the election. Because listen to what this dominion spokesperson. The Dominion voting machine company. What he said that we should expect next from his company. Can you give us a preview of when the next lawsuits Dominion. We'll be filed. I'm not here to make news on that front but let me say this. Mike lindell is begging to be sued and at some point we may well oblige him. So here's the remaining scoop. On some other biden administration policies. Here are a couple of videos about biden talking about the urge and the need to pass the stimulus package relatively quickly purply. That's in fact we're going to be in a situation where a long long time and Appreciate y'all truman. Over because urgency mature movement. this about people's lives. this is not just about people's lives people. Are i tell any of. You are really hurting people of victims. Just look at all the number people who needed sneaky mental health services now. Suicides up people are really really drug abuse against when people are really feeling the whole on how to get out you give them a lot of hope. Hope the as they. So they're deliver the grace of god and goodwill encrypt not rise. We can really begin to do something. Consequentially so i wanna thank you all and but i you know president president bobby put me in charge of recovery act and it was hard as hell get the votes for to begin with and it was hard as hell getting a number retired but one thing we learned. Is you know we can't do too much. We can do to little do to sputter but again the end result is not just a macroeconomic impact on the economy and our ability to compete internationally. People's lives real live. People are hurting and we can fix. We can fix it. The irony of all ideas is when we held them. We are also helping our competitive capacity through the remainder of this decade. And it's real. It's got a chance to do something here. And i thank you for for last night yesterday much. You're going to be doing recovery. Act and i can hardly wait to sit down with. Putin defies not work on infrastructure. To thank you all for being here. Thank you for trump hand. I know some in congress think we've already done enough to deal with the crisis in the country. Others think that things are getting better and we can afford to sit back neither do little or do nothing at all. That's not what i see. I see enormous pain in this country. A lot of folks out of work a lot of folks going hungry staring at the ceiling tonight wondering what am i going to do tomorrow. A lot of folks trying to figure out how to keep their jobs and take care of their children. A lot of folks reaching the breaking point suicides are up. Mental health needs increasing violence against women and children's increasing. A lot of folks are losing hope. And i believe the american people are looking right now to their government for help to do our job to not let them down. So i'm going to act and i'm going to act fast. I'd like to be. I like to be doing it. With the support of republicans. Republicans some really fine people want to get something done. But they're just not willing to go as far as we have to go. I've told both republicans and democrats. That's my preference to work together. But if i have to choose between getting help right now to americans who are hurting so badly and getting drier bogged down negotiation or compromise on a bill. That's that's up to the crisis this an easy choice. I'm going to help. The american people are hurting. Now that's why. I'm so grateful to the house and the senate for moving so fast on the american rescue plan in friday spoke about that budget resolution that passed africa harris. Broke the tie. So let's just hear that call as our fifty. The nays are fifty. The senate being equally divided the vice-president votes in the affirmative and the concurrent resolution as amended is adopted. That is going to be fun to hear for at least the next two years. Then we have press secretary. Jen psaki not taking any bs from fox. News reporter let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers whether it's pipeline workers or construction workers who are either work or will soon be out of work because by e 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 so. I'm just curious when happens when those people well it certainly welcome you to 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 happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend of joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include. How about this. The international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs and ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well what mr trump. 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 helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beats around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants at fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get him the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent. In that was in new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with them. What they're seeing in. Why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covert and the flu so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times so last year. We had a hundred times more cases at this time when we had done. Eight hundred thousand tests back then. The flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty and thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions and precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covert spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events. That didn't happen before. It's not like if you went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu. You al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like cova sticks more easily so is easier to transmit of course doctors have some problems with all of this for one our bodies might start to sort of forget. The flu mean that they won't be able to produce the right or enough. Antibodies to fight it off as effectively. Before although i imagine if you got your flu shot this year. Probably in pretty good shape second. It makes it harder for the world health organization to recommend the right ingredients for the flu vaccine. For next year. I had always heard that it was like some crazy long process in that it took like a year to make them and they had to start planning a year in advance but this article finally went into detail about how the flu vaccine is made so the. Who meets twice a year to recommend vaccine ingredients to countries in the northern and southern hemispheres. There's one meeting for each sensor winters. Take place at opposite times and actually the northern hemisphere later this month when that happens the. Who recommends what to put in the vaccine based on the data that they've collected from the flu samples from all around the world from that data. They pick out which flows are causing the most trouble. And that's why it'll be tougher this year with fewer flu cases. There's also less data so they have to guess more than they usually would on which flows will be around this winter now. The reason that they have to start doing this now in so early is that flu. Vaccines usually take about six months to make. However this new technology that we're using for covid vaccines could make a huge difference with flu vaccines in just the very near future. A lot of companies are already studying this since the mr can be switched out pretty quickly and they can adjust though probably be able to make flu vaccines in just a few weeks once able to focus on that instead of covid so that would be pretty interesting now. The doctors did emphasize that. We're not just done with the flu. It is still out there and people and maybe people just aren't getting tested because they're always at home but still that's one silver lining. I can't imagine like residents homes if we had both at the same time because they struggle with flu anyways man. We dodged a bullet there. All right folks. that's gonna do for me here today for the news. Just remember no show tomorrow back on wednesday in then back on friday. Then it'll be our new schedule but if you wanna leave some feedback about quick news daily and what i can do to improve. There is still that linked to the form in the episode descriptions.

The O'Reilly Update, February 8, 2021

"Bill o'reilly here one day. From where eight thousand and twenty one. You're listening to the riley update. Here's what's happening today in america. Some democrats say joe biden's cova vision doesn't spend enough. The president blaming donald trump for the slow vaccine rollout washington ramps up security for the impeachment trial iran issues and ultimate him over. Its new program. Gas prices on the rise almost everywhere also ahead the malarkey zone. The truth about president. Biden's debut. But first senator bernie sanders and other far left lawmakers attacking. Mr biden's virus stimulus package claiming fourteen hundred dollar checks for americans are simply too small congresswoman. Ocasio cortez hinting. More money can be allocated by slashing the budgets of the nation's police departments excellent idea right joe biden giving his first super bowl interview with cbs news. Norah o'donnell majority of the time was spent on the federal government's response to covid which he blamed on donald trump. What is the prize. Mr biden also refusing to answer a question on whether the nation's schools should be reopened. The secret service dc police national guard and others standing in washington to provide security for the impeachment trial of president trump. at least five thousand troops will patrol the city during the proceedings. Which begin tomorrow. The additional safety measures will cost taxpayers. More than five hundred thousand dollars. A day in overtime pay array of premium leader telling the usa to lift all sanctions if it wants the islamic republic to live up to its commitments under the international nuke deal president biden starting the process of rejoining the deal on his first day in office but apparently that is not quick enough. For the mullah's national gas prices jumping about thirty five cents. Since inauguration day president biden spent his first two weeks office targeting the nation's energy sector cancelling the keystone pipeline and banning new drilling on federal land. So gas prices are up because the industry is stockpiling money. Finally congratulations to the tampa. Bay buccaneers they dominated the kansas city chiefs in super bowl. Fifty five winning thirty one and nine. We'll have more on that later on now. This on the jordan harbinger show. You'll hear amazing stories from people that have lived them from spies to ceo's even an undercover agent who infiltrated the gambino crime family. You're about to hear a preview of jordan harbinger show with jack garcia. Who did just that. My career was twenty. Four out of twenty six years was solely dedicated working on the cover. I walk in the bar bar. May dan good looking young lady. She served utah. What would you like. Frank was me walmart gaining three questions. Undecided i've finished the drank guys. A man i'm gonna go go in my pocket take out the big wad of money bam give one hundred dollars you with the mob. I say you're on record with us. That means we protect. Nobody could shake the down. We could shake you down. Oh you're on record with us. For more on how jack became so trusted in the highest levels of the gambino organization checkout episode three ninety two of the jordan harbinger. Show time now for the o'reilly update message of the day. President biden's debut in the oval office after less than three weeks. Mr biden has imposed higher taxes on every american. Did you know that we are paying dramatically more for gasoline and heating oil in my long island town. A gallon of gas costs forty cents more than it did before mr biden assumed office can't wait for my heating bill. You may remember that. Mr biden promise not to raise taxes on working people but he had to know the by attacking the fossil fuel industry with executive orders. The oil companies would immediately begin stockpiling cash by raising fuel prices. Just as we reported everybody knew that. So because of a government mandate we the people pay more on necessities. It's an indirect tax like obamacare at least according to supreme court justice. John roberts remember that we pay higher. Health insurance premiums because of a government ordered health policy. Which mr robert said was legal because it's a tax now. Most folks have no idea what the deuce is actually happening. As their wallets are getting lighter and plenty more tax increases are on the way you may have noticed. President biden trying to secure about four two billion dollars to fight cova and climate change. But the country doesn't have an extra four trillion because the usa right now owes close to thirty trillion dollars money. It can never repay. But all joe either isn't understand that for doesn't care anyway. His administration will have to institute punitive income tax increases to go along with the myriad of indirect taxes like a higher fuel costs sometime in the fall when gas prices hit three dollars. Fifty cents a gallon. The eighty million people who voted for joe biden might begin to figure all this out but of course the corrupt media will not help them. The press got president biden elected. It will not turn on him unless he becomes on woke but the folks may well turn on the president just as they have in california where uber liberal governor gavin. Newsom is about to be recall. There will be a vote to boot him out of office by summer. Many californians have had enough newsom like pritzker in illinois in cuomo in new york has ruined his beautiful state. It's all about getting high high taxes. High crime high numbers of homeless people. Many of whom are literally high invading neighborhoods. Also the high number of covid restrictions have brutalized most californians but not gavin is table at the lavish french laundry. Restaurant remains reserved.

The urgency. didn't wanna hear it because they were gorging themselves with food and watching the game they didn't want wanna hear some philosophical thing about how you succeed in life but i did get the message in because in the second half. It was clear that the tampa bay team was far more disciplined than the kansas city team. And the tom brady at forty three years. Old is the best quarterback on the planet. And i quickly explained during one of the dopey commercials. How that happened. The team tampa did not make foolish penalties. The quarterback brady lives alive that is spartan to say the least in fact brady makes these spartans looked like the hollywood crowd so every day. There's a regiment. He eats very healthy foods. That don't taste great. He works out six days a week and he works out not just an hour all throughout the day. Now you can say well look. The guy makes all this money and this is.

Please call today time now for the O'Reilly update message of the day should actress Felicity Huffman who appeared in the TV programme desperate housewives go to federal federal prison miss up and faces one month and a twenty thousand dollar fine for admitting to bribing being an academic to rig her high school daughters. Sat scores so the girl could attend a better school. Now affability Huffman will be sentenced on Friday. Federal prosecutors wanted to go to prison describing her behaviors quote deliberate and manifestly criminal mischief and ask the judge for one year probation instead of serving time quote. I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's office. I am in full acceptance of my guilt says Miss Huffman and with deep regret and shame over what I have done I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept accept the consequences that stemmed from those actions she goes on quote. I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter. My family family my friends. My colleagues and the educational community want to apologize to them and especially I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college and to their parents who made tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly well. The twitter mob is not forgiven felicity. Huffman and some in the media are hanging her as well on the view. Megan McCain said quote struggling to be a mom doesn't mean you break the law. They are the poster children for what everyone hates about white privilege and she deserves to go to jail. I'm sorry for a long period of time for over a month again that is Megan McCain now. Felicity often is not the first celebrity celebrity facing prison actor Mark Wahlberg when he was young assaulted two Vietnamese man served forty five days comedian Tim Allen Alan sold drugs serve two point five years Martha Stewart obstructed justice lied to investigators about stock sales. She served five months. What's Mike Tyson served three years for rape but compared to those situations with the possible exception of Martha Stewart Felicity Huffman's crime is small. Yes rich parents who cheat must be held accountable but pudding felicity Huffman in prison even for a few you days. What purpose does that serve. She's been humiliated. Her career has been damaged. Her daughter did not take any other students. Place daughters not even in school now.

The O'Reilly update brings me something you might not know the CBS evening. News has been an American television mainstay for nearly eight decades. The weeknight program began airing July of nineteen forty one. I says a fifteen minute newscasts eventually extending to a half hour anchors Mike Douglass Edwards Walter Cronkite dan rather became household names and some of the most trusted people in America now those days are largely the over with competition increasing and public trust in television news declining the CBS evening news has fallen on hard times ratings ratings are at an all time low the program now runs in third place among the major networks behind ABC and NBC in an effort to turn things around CBS management different replace Anchor Jeff Galore with Norah O'Donnell that move seems to have the opposite effect according to Nielsen the show CBS CBS Evening News Lost Two hundred forty seven thousand viewers or five percent of its total audience since missile Donald took over an average average of five million people view the program that may sound like a lot but by comparison twenty nine million tune in every night to watch Walter cronkite the decline that is not just limited to the CBS evening news since the days of Johnny Carson late night television as also taken a nosedive for for years viewers turned into Carson for a few laughs before bet today the current crop of late night comics largely lecture the audience audience with anti trump jokes and divisive rhetoric. Stephen Colbert currently leaves late night ratings according to Nielsen he pulls in about three three and a half million viewers a night behind him NBC's tonight show Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel average about two million viewers each each not very many that's a long way from Johnny course who entertained nine million viewers each night and in his final week as the tonight show host that number reached nineteen million viewers quite a turnaround for the CBS Evening News and like night night television. Johnny Carson of course is alleged today. There are few of those the rally update we'll be right back. Moore's rates are down more than one percent since two thousand eighteen in fact according to Freddie Mac data if you were looking for for a three hundred thousand dollar mortgage late last year you'd pay two hundred and forty dollars more per month than you would now.
