Are the future cases going to be tried in Washington, D.C.? Does it make a difference if it's Northern Virginia versus D.C. walk us through that? Sure. Well, anywhere but D.C. is great for the reasons you and I all know. You can't have three jurors on your jury pool that donated to Hillary one to AOC. And then another juror's kid plays swim pool time with the defendant. Northern Virginia is better. It's substantially better.

Who Is Scott Presler?

Who Is Scott Presler?

"Where did you come from, Scott? Well, I was born in Jacksonville, Florida to a retired navy captain. We moved up to Northern Virginia, and here's where I got my start because it all started with president Obama, the night that he was reelected, I created my Twitter account. And in part because I was mad at myself, Mike. Where was I registering voters? Where was I knocking on doors? Where was I getting out the vote? And the answer is that I hadn't been an active participant in our constitutional republic. So as opposed to me pointing the finger at other people blaming them for president Obama's reelection, I turned the thinker back at myself. And I started volunteering for the Republican Party. I fell in love with it. I felt like I was making a difference in my community. And I'm wearing cowboy boots right now because in honor of 2014, my first ever political job was helping to elect governor Greg Abbott and the great state of Texas. Then I knew with the passing of the late Antonin Scalia that the Supreme Court was up for grabs and I never wanted Hillary Clinton to be the deciding factor in appointing a Supreme Court Justice. So I spent two years of my life helping to defeat Hillary Clinton and I spent the last four years of my life traveling the country registering thousands of voters training tens of thousands of volunteers and cleaning up our cities. You see, because it was president Obama who inspired me, but it was president Trump who had me take a deeper look at our neglected and abandoned inner cities. And I started cleaning them up. We and just two years time have done cleanups in Atlanta, Austin Baltimore, Chicago, Denver decaying Detroit, Houston Kenosha, Los Angeles, Miami Milwaukee, Nashville, Portland, Pittsburgh, Philly. And I was even protested, Mike Gallagher, for picking up trash.

Heritage's Kevin Roberts on Washington and the Inflation Crisis

"Let's talk about this piece very impressive senator Rand Paul. You co authored in Fox business. Just one issue. Forget energy just inflation. How serious you use the word crisis in the headline? Talk to us about Washington and the inflation crisis. Look, I know when people hear a guy like me leading a D.C. based organization that focuses on policy, they think that we deal in the abstract. I think actually one of the things we do well at heritage is look at these problems like inflation from what I like to call the sidewalk level. I can do that because I'm a dad of four. I have to pay the same price as everyone else does. And that's really the point. And I think what senator Paul and I were able to get at in this op-ed and tremendous credit to him is that we understand that inflation is not an abstract concept. You and I and your listeners feel this every time we go to the grocery store. In fact, I was shopping with our little girls grocery shopping Saturday afternoon here in Northern Virginia. And I said, good lord. I mean, what has happened to prices just in the last few weeks? That's what we mean, senator Paul and I, when we use the word crisis. It isn't just a crisis for us and our government because we're on the brink of this fiscal cliff. It's a crisis for us and our own pocketbooks. And I look forward to the day when we can get past this because it means that we understand we can't continue to spend this kind of money and expect inflation to go

How Virginia Became Ground Zero in the American Culture War

"Virginia, which is now being called a blue state, how long is it going to be blue? Or is it going to stay that way? Again, the counties around Washington, D.C. are reliably blue for a variety of different reasons. The first reason of course is its proximity to the power center to the kingdom of Washington, D.C.. The second is the amount of universities that are in Northern Virginia, which is extraordinary. If you look at the amount of universities in D.C. and Virginia, the third of which is, of course, the fact that a lot of first generation low wage worker immigrants move to Northern Virginia to be able to make the life of luxury possible for so many people that live in Northern Virginia. And many, many of the refugee resettlement programs and the immigration, the mass immigration programs come to Northern Virginia, which has resulted in a totally different political type atmosphere to win an election in Virginia. And so Virginia Democrats have been able to win, reliably by running up the score Northern Virginia, being able to win in Richmond and win on the Virginia coast. The rest of Virginia is very conservative, by the way. Lynchburg is very conservative, Blacksburg isn't because of Virginia tech, but Virginia, Virginia used to be a very conservative state. Charlottesville is obviously not very conservative because the University of Virginia, Blacksburg is Virginia tech, Charlottesville is University of Virginia Lynchburg's Liberty University which is actually a pretty conservative area. Richmond is a very, very Democrat area, and so Virginia seemed dead on arrival for years. There have been great candidates before, running for governor as Republicans, and they always get disappointed. And right, of course, the current governor of Virginia's give and a Ralph northam of Virginia and he won against a pretty good candidate who was the Republican canon in 2017. I can't remember Virginia's goofy. Virginia has elections in off years for their statewide elected officials. So 2017, 2021, 2013, they do every four years and in coming up in a couple weeks, is the Virginia governor's race. And Democrat operatives all across the country, they are going a full court press they are trying to California recall the Virginia race. They're going all in. They're raising money they're bringing in surrogates, so Terry mcauliffe, who is the corrupt Clinton surrogate and wants to be governor of Virginia, I think, again, he was governor once, right? Years ago. He says, look, yesterday I had Jill Biden here. I've had Stacey Abrams. Now, let me just say this.

Fed's Powell: There's No Returning to Pre-Pandemic Economy

"A virtual town hall today with educators and students. Our next question comes from Salvador, a student at Northern Virginia Community College. Salvador s even as the economic recovery continues. Could you speak about some ways the U. S economy is evolving or might look different from our pre pandemic economy. Would it deal these days? Um, we can see that the pandemic has changed our economy in some important ways. Only time will tell how lasting these changes will be. But I think we know that we're not simply going back to the economy we had before the pandemic, but it'll take time to see exactly what the changes will be. And we know that the Fed we need to watch carefully as the economy continues to get through the pandemic. And try to understand the ways that the economy has changed and what the implications are for our policy. I think the place to start though, is covid is is still with us as you can tell, And that is likely to continue to be the case for a while. Uh, While more people are getting vaccinated, the pace of vaccination has slowed. A couple of months ago, we were ahead of many other similar countries in vaccination. Now we're falling behind. Um, and one result is you're seeing is the current outbreak of the delta, Uh, string that we're seeing in some parts of the country of the country. So, um, One thing that's happened, as the pandemic has continued, is that people and businesses have Improvised and learn to adapt to live their lives despite covid it, and I would say it's not yet clear whether the Delta screen will have important effects on the economy will have to see about that.

nuggets of information for you here first of all I just tweeted this enhances gonna our executive producer is going to put it on our Facebook page I'm not sure how it's disseminated I guess we can post a picture Armstrong and Getty dot com but if you get the idea that the east coast media is obsessed with the cove and while they are partly because scaring you is a good way to get you to tune in but it's a map of the United States that the green area shows you where a third of the deaths have taken place the yellow area likewise in the red area likewise a third a third a third Jack take a look at that map would you the whole damn country what's incredible is isn't the green is the one third of the deaths and then you have a little bit in Chicago and this issue is that accurate that's incredible yeah well the Detroit area and then a good deal of the eastern seaboard is the the second third all yellow and then essentially New York New Jersey is a third that's incredible he had a medical certainly explains a lot of the media coverage when you look at that map we're talking we did the story a little bit ago the the attempted to set up a jazz in Portland rights overnight businesses smash fires fight the police same as in Seattle a couple of weeks ago it's not getting much attention because on the west coast it's the opposite of that story imagine if only the chance things were happening in you know in the in New York and in in Philadelphia for items right yeah in the second thing of interest I want to bring in this is kind of a Downer but it's it's probably worth knowing a good friend of ours his his wife has the covert nineteen it is now three months and a day into having it and she still testing positive still feeling pretty miserable although she's gotten back to some level of real life I mean it's still utterly unclear why she's gotten the super long term terrible thing still has on nausea sore throat shortness of breath after three months she is incredible well on all use the words of our friend she is defeated and exhausted and frustrated her primary care doctor at I'm not I'm gonna leave the name of the company is when your big healthcare companies we'll leave it off but has fallen off the face of the planet she also have go ahead so we don't know what's going on there we're now requesting a new freaking doctor with big company in paying out of pocket for a follow up with the research center the just the latest test on our company has been really really really damned obscenity rhymes with spaghetti we paid for this latest Kovin tested by this other company because the big companies too slow and this southern places bogged down in massive bureaucracy then we but she still got to be separated from the family because they have kids and the last thing we need is all of a sack and then national media's writing articles about people that have had it for the same or less time than than his wife and yet we two people in the damn the industry are struggling to get her adequate care I will never never never be on an HMO and I think she finally realizes it's just too risky yeah the vast majority of health care is a bureaucratic giving mass but when you are stuck in an HMO you're just one step better than a government system when something like this really goes wrong if you were on a PPO with me we could take her anywhere and get good care but in big company we are stuck in their pathetic morass don't get cove it yeah it's no big deal for ninety percent or so but if you were in the ten percent it could be months of hell the employer to well and bureaucratic cal while you're in during the physical hell wondering what permanent effects it's gonna have and hoping you don't die so if I like if I got it also not feeling sick I go into the hospital and I've got it well then immediately attest my family obviously but if they don't have it then I've got to stay away from them until I stop testing positive which has in this case could be months me out probably people can do that I don't know it's terrible because even if you're not like hospitalize you got to be in an apartment or something hotel or whatever you got to be somewhere else unless you go to sleep on a park bench which I've done that came up yesterday at home also has some other jokers sleeping on a park bench I said I've done that my kid said you've slept on a park bench first time ever came to California when I was eighteen years old I didn't have a a hotel booked I thought I'd be able to find a hotel room somewhere driving up and down the highway and there I was sleeping on a park bench in Salinas California I'll be damned the hotel it's not that comfortable no no and one final call you have to be really drunk that's how those other guys pulled off long there you go little lifehack get hammered he was super drunk I sleep in the park bass one final covert no because the media's into shocking and terrifying you and we're not we just want you to understand the truth that if you had fallen off that park bench and broken your arm and they admitted you to the hospital and you had cove it you would be listed as a covert hospitalization even though you feel perfectly fine other than your broken arm in your hang over so a lot is this statistic you're hearing about hospitalizations are according to one study about twenty percent of the covert hospitalizations are totally unrelated to just people with covert as opposed to admitted for COPD it so it's difficult to hear the statistics and really know what
