White House Vows To Have Something To Stick In Your Arm By October
"When will there be a vaccine that's been the question on everyone's mind since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. And today we may finally have a clearer picture of the timeline yesterday President Trump filed to definitely something to stick in your arms soon. And as ordered the rollout of some kind of sharp pointy medicine thing that will poke you by the end of October at the latest your CDC deputy director and shook it on the White House has promised thanks to our nation's doctors being at the Forefront of medical and scientific research and our American Ingenuity. The US will be the first country to distribute a stabby pointy pain a vile thingy designed to be jabbed directly into patients muscle or skin or something and it will have some effect on your body either good or bad joining us. Now with more is ope our health corporate agenda Resnick. So Jenna, it sounds like something that at least resembles a vaccine could be on the horizon exactly which phase of the process is it in well as of right now Leslie, we really don't know very much but what we do know is this President Trump has guaranteed that all Americans will get stuck with something in their arm by election day. Now so far Pfizer Moderne and AstraZeneca have all been able to develop some very promising poking methods extremely sharp long and wet take a listen after ten long months. We know Americans are ready and excited to get stabbed soon people just like you and me will be able to go to a pharmacy down pay money and get stabbed through the skin with a vial of goo in a very painful way. Well, I gotta say that can't come soon enough, but I have to admit Jenna I really wasn't expecting to get stabbed by our government until Twenty-One at the earliest. That's right. Some were even estimating 2024 is a more realistic time frame for having a stranger in Scrubs inject healing juices into your veins. But according to the CDC even with the accelerated schedule early trials are going well. So far. The devices have been very effective at going into and out of arms as well as shooting the liquid which has been amply moist. They are however still trying to work out some of the quote Peppa Pig. And deadly side effects, but that's not going to stop them from rolling this thing out and Walgreens and CVS Pharmacies across the country as soon as possible. Oh Walgreens, that's where I buy my little bottles of orange juice and large fish oil pills every morning so you can count me and but Jenna I have to assume people are going to be pretty excited to have their skin punctured once it's available and personally, I'd rather endanger everyone around me or even die myself rather than wait in line longer than 15 seconds. How does the government plan to roll this out in a way that meets the high demand? Well, it's certainly going to be difficult. But the plan as of now is to prioritize Suburban patients who are also undecided voters. The White House also wants to focus on high-risk patients like the elderly particularly in blue States and is planning to stab them all in the neck presumably so the serum can get to their brain faster interesting tactical. How much is it going to cost while there had certainly been talk of it being no cost to patients. The price has actually yet to be set according to the CDC so far they've estimated it could cost either $10 5 home. Dollars or even one hundred thousand dollars depending on how desperate we get small price to pay for a vaccine that may or may not work. Thanks Jenna when it comes out. I'll be first in line. Otherwise, I'm not getting it. I'm a busy man. Anyway, that's opr is Jenna Resnick back in a moment? You know even with a vaccine, I'm still not sure if I'll ever feel quite comfortable enough to go back to a restaurant again and hide in the big garbage can and the kitchen so that when the wait staff clears off the food left behind on both of those plates at lands right into my open mouth allowing me to eat a free meal with the people working at the restaurant being none the wiser, but who knows maybe one day we'll be able to get back to some sense of normalcy. Anyway, here's what I need to know today the far-right conspiracy theory dub qanon has gained an alarming amount of traction in the lead up to this year's presidential election. And today we may have more of an understanding as to why a new psychological study published this morning has found that the appeal of qanon can be attributed largely to it being one hundred percent true top psychiatric researchers have concluded that when a certain type of person is presented with the fact that our government is secretly run by a cabal of Satan worshipping pedophiles. They will have a tendency to believe these claims due to the fact that they're totally real and absolutely can be backed up with hard undeniable evidence if you just Just read between the lines interesting. They may have to dive into my Facebook feed and do a little research on this for myself and big news for bird lovers today is ornithologist from the University of Rhode Island have been founded a ten million dollar Grant to research whether that big bird up. There is a hawk researchers are hopeful that this newly secured funding will help them ascertain whether the burden question is indeed a hawk and not some kind of ego long possibly even a falcon in will allow them to expand their investigation by passing around the binoculars so they can all get a better look at that thing. And finally as we near the end of the month Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has unveiled his plan to combat the city's growing homeless population brought on by the mass evictions plaguing his city mayor Garcetti announced today his administration stands committed to ensuring every Los angeleno has a roof over their head and that he would personally be sending around some pretty reasonable Zillow listings to those in need sounds like a great plan and if any homeless residents are listening take my advice if you see something you like on one of them.

NRA Issues F Rating To Bugs Bunny For Tying Up Guns Into Pretzel Shape
"In the wake of new. York. Attorney, General, Latisha James's lawsuit against their organization. The powerful National Rifle Association is clapping back. I. Think I'm using that right? Anyway. The Guns Rights Organization today issued an F rating to bugs bunny for tying up guns into Pretzel Shapes. For more I'm joined by OPR senior alcohol tobacco firearms and explosive correspondent Marcy Hammond mercy. What was the NRA's thinking here while the NRA reserved. The F. rating figures at deems is particularly harmful to the rights of gun owners and leadership believes that bugs his long history of firearm destruction qualifies him. Here's how NRA deputy spokesperson Rhonda mcdaniel. Explain their decision time and time. Again, we have seen this radical agitators seeking to curtail the Second Amendment Rights of Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam by twisting their lawfully purchased firearms into a big bowl and the NRA has had enough. Now let's be clear. Bugs is a beloved cultural figure with relatively little political sway is it really in line with Americans interest for a gun lobby to be targeting him round the NRA certainly thinks. So while the organization has been weakened over the years due to lawsuits and falling public opinion they signal, they'll be devoting considerable resources to getting what they call a no. Good Rascal Rabbit here's mcdaniel. Again, if these sort of left distant imitation tactics prevail, we're looking at a future where government agents can just come to your home while you're sleeping and bend your gun into a youth shape or jammed the barrels with carrots coastal elites like bugs bunny may be okay with that outcome, but real Americans will never stand for it mercy. Some have accused the gun right's organization of not caring about tune rights they pushed for decades to deregulate bazookas. Dynamite sticks coming from the ACME company. That's true. But the NRA would point you to their a rating for Marvin, the Martian. For providing what they call a sterling example of responsible gun ownership. Sure. But do they have any other tactics to push back against what they see boxes anti-gun stance while the F. reading a tactic in and of itself of course. But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life. They're also lobbying Congress to remove him from television claiming that he's been brainwashing our nation's children with anti-gun propaganda, and if those tactics are unsuccessful, they have plans to draw big angle on his head. To, imagine that this separating didn't sit very well with everyone. That's certainly true. Leslie several gun control groups have spoken out against the move with MOMS demand action launching a new ancient stinker ad campaign targeting the NRA. Responded not personally, but a spokesperson reached out to tell reporters quote meet me. Okay. Then Marcie please keep us updated. That's OPR's Marcy
"opr" Discussed on 600 WREC
"My guest tonight grounds. You're a former Secret service agent and giving us information a little bit of information about How this all went down today, with shots fired in front of the White House president escorted out of his briefing today, You know, it's It's odd that we've been seeing a lot of violence in the streets. I mean, you look at Chicago. You see the violence that's happening there. They had to lift the bridges to keep the looting under control. Here in Portland, Of course, we have our violence going on Washington, D. C had violence. Where people were shot. And this is getting almost to the point of civil war and then hearing about those shots fired in front of the White House. And you say yourself that anything that happens in front of the White House like this. They basically shoot a suspect if they feel the president is in danger. Now, I want to know why the media has ignored the story as much as they have. I mean, there isn't much to do about nothing, or do we really Are We really interested in finding out what the motive was for this person that was at the White House today? Yeah, exactly. I mean, I react differently than most other people. They don't know the procedures. They don't know what goes on. If you got a suspect that's going to be out there and he shoots a secret service officer. He's going to take his weapon and proceed to get inside. That's the other way to look at it as well. And the threat has to be stopped immediately and not get any further. That's one way. I was just scanning over the information. They basically said that A 51 year old man approached. The officer said He had a weapon right there. You're supposed to be pulling your weapon. You don't wait around to see what he's gonna do. You pull your weapon out. I've seen the training and I've seen people who have failed their training. That's me because I could criticize because I've been there. I know what's going on. I think I said he had a weapon. The man turned around, ran towards you. Officer pulled something from his clothing. I mean, this officer should have been ready. Shoot him or start squeezing trainers right quick by that time. By the time he crouched down, that's a shooting type position that officers should have shot him two to the chest, one of that or keep firing until the guy fell over dead. Because that's the training. You don't sit around a wait because he may not be the only shooter. He may have an explosive on him. He may have a biological weapon on him. And you still don't know what he's got chemicals or otherwise. Now that's specialized training and information. Right there that I've exposed. A lot of people have no idea because I arrested a man. A black man, dressed in a three piece suit jumped the White House fence on a midnight shift. Carrying a briefcase. He could have had a weapon in the briefcase. He claimed he only had papers. I arrested him. I had him at gunpoint kept him talking. The whole nine yards. Got him cuffed up fine. No problem, And I've got a martial arts background So I was looking for all kinds of signals. Then he was okay up to a point. He was OK, but he's still psychologically kind of weird because he was wondering why I asked him what his name Wass. That that's just something I like to ask people before we shoot them. You know that kind of little cop joke, but still, you have to know where I need to know your name. I don't know where the center body and he threw him off. You don't know what to do. He needs to know that I mean business, you know, short of what you may see in a dirty Harry movie or something like that. Sure, but you don't know what's in the briefcase. So I was going to take him cuffed up and the briefcase kid already basically felt it felt really light. Supervisor was an ex Marine, by the way, wanted me to walk in, like straight through the North Gate. Not far from where this other incident said No. I'm gonna walk him around the Executive Avenue got side and up the avenue and then go to the North gate. Otherwise I would have walked in between. The West Wing, the mansion up to the front lawn, exposing that briefcase to the whole building. Now. You think? Maybe the guy thought twice after I told him that and he probably thought, Well, maybe that's a good idea. Back in 76 77 Okay? Sure. Now. So every time I see other incidents here, they don't tell you the information they're going to restrict it. They're going to restrict who this guy is. It's confidential. Metropolitan P D has been assigned to investigate it. But you can bet the OPR office professional responsibility, which is internal affairs for Secret service is going to be in on it right there. And they're going to strip him down. They're gonna look at all this paperwork. They're going to take photographs of record everything this guy's got before they cut him up and transport him if he's still alive. And you're not going to know the status. If he's alive. You're not even gonna know what the status is of the officer, and he's going to be put on administrative leave automatically after he's been interviewed and done his reports. He gets like three days off automatically unless he feels necessary to see psychologists and all those Shooting type.

Just my beliefs is you can't underestimate teams and not that the dodgers winning there believing that way. But I think a lot of as it some conscious, I think the fan base in people just feel like when you look at a record and you look at a team struggling versus a team that has something on a line that you're, you're automatically gonna get that w. in. That's not the case. It's just not true, but it doesn't help when Alex will goes out and does Darby person like the team played well, but they start off down four zero right out the first any and it's just hard for any team to overcome that I saw was too, I was like, oh. Oh fast. And I was like, you gotta give the guys a chance. Dave Roberts talking about Alex wood and the fact that he couldn't get anything started. We got put behind early and. And the first inning, the walk hit batsmen. And then obviously it kind of got away from this really give give four runs in the first inning. I just didn't think you sharp tonight and they were taking swings from from to get. But the offense did a great job getting us back into the game competing. You know, we one hit away with the at bad from giving completed bogging, so I thought the offense was good on. That's Dave Roberts win for the fences, hit the bone, the button he should win for the fence probably could hit it out. If you try to swing for the who used the Keyshawn baseball logic, he just shoulda hit it three feet to the left or right trashing. The ball on the button. It was tough Babbitt. Right? That's right. Tough about it. That was bad break. It was a bad break. Did he ever recover? No. Forget the OPR aid to Oprah, Oprah. Yeah, the dodgers did it again with the rhythm. Baseball's not a a fiery up Raas or things as chose, not something that you can light a fire under somebody, it's. But it does feel like the time is if there is a way to get guys going. There is a way to light a fire break, trash can or whatever it is that you do to get guys attention. They don't even talk to each other. And no, I'm talking about pre-game or whatever it is baseball's not like that. There needs to be some sort of awareness, Dave Roberts his guys that look, we've got less than twenty games to go. Let's get going, you know the the thing that's different about baseball than it is the other team sports, like hockey football, basketball. Is that what it is a team sport, it's really based on individuals. Yeah, I, I've always said Elsie. I don't think baseball is a team, so it'd be it is because they're dying guys out there at once. But when the balls hit to the shortstop, he can't look to the second baseman say, hey, come on over here hand with your your, your own batter's box by yourself, which is why I think is is hard to. To do a speech, the fire up all the guys as collective, because then he run out and they're on their own, the pitchers by himself at best teammates to catch her, you know, but first basements by himself, it's basically pitchers and catchers usually have good chemistry. They usually do. You happy with that by myself. I'm gonna know what I'm going to get that one. That was good. That was good. So that's why it's hard. You know, when you're like far in a basketball team, you can double team guy. You know you, you can't call them to the mountains. What are you going to say?.

"Now it's what we're discovering that they were actors inside the justice department and the fbi who were virulently anti obama yet they were inside the justice department and the fbi and they were investigating one party and letting everybody go and and the other party there in snaring everyone what do you have how do you think the news media directing all this you know the news media has rushed to the aid of andrew mccabe who was fired on friday evening friday night from his job after twenty one years at the fbi and fired in such a fashion that he is apparently not going to be eligible for his pension or at least for a full pension now there are democrat members of congress that have stepped up and they've announced that they're willing to hire him for whatever number of days is necessary so that he can complete his number of days years as a federal government employees and collect us full pension now that's the democrats jumping in this is a guy who who's firing was recommended by the office of professional responsibility the opr it's essentially the ethics office at the department of justice and the opr the office of professional responsibility is run by a woman who was appointed by muller to to do that job her name is candice will like george will no relation as far as i know candace 'em will and she was appointed to that position by none other than muller now the inspector general at the department of justice is a guy named michael horowitz michael horowitz as far as i know doesn't control the weather but he does control the inspector general's office at the department of justice and he was put into that position by barack obama by then president barack obama who chose this man to head up the inspector general's office at the department of justice president trump has i think perhaps on occasion not wisely wade into this or on this matter and waded into this matter having to do with the fbi and who should be fired and and who shouldn't and on some level it doesn't make a lot of difference on another level it could make a lot of difference in court later on and it doesn't really behoove him to to jump in and make it appear as though he's putting his his thumb or his hand or his foot on.

"Recommendation of the disciplinary officials they hold office of professional responsibility and their recommendation he could have ignored that and he didn't have to do this firing and i think that's very important to note tactfully and let me ask you this question kelly donald because i think this is one of the important things is that the administration is hanging the fire of andrew mccabe on this report from the opr the office official sponsor ability do you have in your reporting any any indication that we the public will ever get to see that report will it's one of the things that would help fill a lot of the gaps here and our colleagues at the justice department who cover that beat every day are probably better apt to answer that but the fact that it is not public now does suggest that there is this a knowledge gap where we are led to believe that there was some offense or offenses by mccabe found by this suppose you know independent arbiter that merited firing but we don't know the specifics there we've heard it sort of in a a narrative way but we don't have the report we also saw how the intention to retire some couple of months ago had been announced by mccabe and then the fbi director chris wray hastened that removal of his position in part because of this office of inspector general report but we don't have those details i think more broadly on the timing of the stormy daniels issue and this there are a lot of lawyers involved in this in multiple jurisdictions representing the the president in the outside case coordination is not something we can always identify here these are things that are running in sort of a parallel loop and they do affect each other in terms of the public perception of the stormy daniels track is something that the white house has tried to bat away this is right in their lane and the white house has learned the hard way that the president is not supposed to interfere by tradition in the department of justice so they push this onto jeff sessions and you've laid out the case about how he has been politically under pressure since he uttered the word recusals and he followed this action taking that advice taking this action which we know because of the president's of republicans.

"Know took place than the oig is really your first stop opr within the fbi is is kind of you know it it's a first step but normally the the real first step is oig um at the justice department and they're the ones that look into improprieties and miss behavior of people within the justice department and and then like i said they're doing just that right now so that's that would be the proper functioning of these organizations but the debate seems like they didn't function properly for some reason and let me put you in the position of being that say i'm the one being investigated in your my attorney and i know they're a bunch of people who want me hurt in some way and there i know and i've been we've been made appraise of this memo that shows the evidence of what these people are up to in weather than what they do and i feel as though i'm being wrongly accused and i've got nothing to hide why would you advise me to go do a deposition with attorney that's motivated to hurt me it would you advise me that i released that memo well i mean those are two separate interesting things i mean look if you're a defense attorney you know and you want to poison the jury pool sure you issue a memo like that you send that out because and you know potential jurors read that yes they are a quarter public opinion excellent excellent mission accomplished if if if that's your mission if that's what makes your mission is to poison the jury pool uh before before and outcome is is you know before muller comes out and says you know all these you know whatever is the result of his investigation is yeah then that's you're you're exactly right he's the but what you're saying is at what cost and the cost is the fascinating and the faith in our institutional systems and i would argue i think you're you're right and that's our grave concern that's a that seems to be generally our grave concern art that if the loss of faith in our systems generally just we become cynical it's pathetic ari we will be three we feel that any blame us role but.
