Sean Davis: Documents Scandal Is More About the Biden Family Business

"Biden classified documents debacle I have made the case on my Fox show on this show and on my podcast I believe it's a bigger scandal than just documents It's convenient that the documents are alleged to be about Ukraine and China while Joe Biden's son was involved in multi-million dollar business deals with these two entities while Biden was lobbying the Obama White House at the time for weapons and money to China Interesting that they tried to prosecute Mike Flynn for a foreign agent registration act violation with turkey and yet the scandal staring us in the face that the president of the United States may in fact be a foreign agent as well I completely agree with you I think official Washington has kind of stuck in this model where they have to look at everything through the lens of Trump And so they're constantly trying to find ways Oh this is totally different than Trump And they should go after him but not Biden This to me is so much bigger than who happened to have documents where because to be honest I don't actually care about that I care about the bigger substance issue here which is the Biden family business And how the Biden family has made its money over the last 50 years by selling influence connections to the Biden family and information And in that to me is the actual scandal here It's not where a piece of paper happened to be found or stored It's what the Biden family is actually doing with all of its connections and its interest in and its experience in government namely Hunter Biden

Re-Read 2017 Article 'Ukrainian Efforts to Sabotage Trump Backfire'

"This political article sums up the whole thing It's called Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire It was written right as Trump was getting into office January of 2017 It explains everything One last time easily summed up Biden is a foreign agent He was taking money from foreign countries through his son And I believe it was influencing what he was doing inside the Obama White House It's why Obama did not agree with him about a lot of his Ukraine stuff even though Biden was the point man on Ukraine The Obama team knew he was compromised and they did nothing about him making them just as guilty Biden's a foreign agent his son is taking money The Ukrainians who were paying off Biden for his influence in The White House They knew Trump knew about the scandal because a guy who was working in Ukraine Paul Manafort was Trump's campaign manager He knew the whole scam So they had to take out Trump and Manafort at the same time They made up a fake story these Ukrainians in conjunction with Democrat operatives here chalupa being one of them No not that Taco Bell thing They made up a fake story about Paul Manafort taking payoffs For pro Russia forces in Ukraine enhancing the Russia collusion narrative look Manafort with Russia too He's working with Trump And they said that the payments were documented in what they call the black ledger You can go look it up Ladies and gentlemen the story was fake There was no black ledger It was fake The whole story was fake It was a hit on Manafort and Trump at the same time because Manafort told Trump about the whole Ukrainian payoff deal with Biden and other Democrats

"obama white house" Discussed on WLS-AM 890

"They are freaking out is because folks, I believe with their hiding, is potentially a money funneling scheme from the Ukrainians buying influence with Joe Biden within the Obama White House. In exchange for quid pro quo military aid back and forth. Folks, you just watched the yesterday's podcast. I laid it out for you right there. I'll go through it again today because new details have emerged. There's no longer a serious question by any serious nonpartisan non activist operator in the media. That Hunter Biden and Joe Biden were engaged in some kind of international scheme to get money into the Biden family. That's a fact. That's not open for debate. You can say and argue they were paying for Hunter Biden's natural gas skills and his consulting abilities. I need fine. You convince yourself of that kind of stupidity. As I said yesterday, they don't be libs. That's okay. I think we are suspicious, however, are correct. That this was not about hiring Hunter Biden. This was about hiring Joe. The only question is how did the money get from Ukraine? To burisma. To hunter to Joe, we have the first three of those four. But how the money got to the big guy, Joe Biden, is an open question. We have emails suggesting 10% was kept aside. But we have some new information yesterday. And I caution you not to get ahead of this story though. Because you know what'll happen if you get even a minor detail wrong. The media will quote pounce some of you get the joke. And suggest the whole story is now bunk. You got to be very careful about this. A couple of U.S. senators got caught up in myth. Don't get ahead of these stories. There's enough information there to make that leap that what they may be really hiding and what Biden may have really been looking to do by squirreling away these documents. Is hiding information about his involvement with Ukraine because if you saw it and you became aware of the payments to his son, you'd put two and two together that there may have been a something for something deal here. Now, I said you can always gauge the severity of a leftist scandal by the reaction of the full-time activist liberal media. I want you to listen to this, I think this is from that tip news busters. It was just news busters. You remember Jim, I think it was maybe busters. They put together a bunch of clips of the media. It's about it goes on for a while, but I cut it to about a minute and 30 with Jim did. It is a collection of responses from the media. All over the place. Trump did it. It's a nothing burger. It's no big deal. Nothing to see here. It's different. Whenever they say that, you're guaranteed this scandal is bigger than just what you're seeing on the surface. Check this out. In November, President Biden's lawyers found less than a dozen documents in an office he used in Washington and turned them over to the national archives. That's about it. That's not the sort of thing you need a special counsel for. If you're a vice president or president, you have a little more flexibility to move stuff around. There's no crime, not by any person and with no relationship to Biden. The Trump investigation and this Biden investigation are completely different. I think everyone understands that. This couldn't look more worse, even though the cases are so different. Completely different based on what the Biden team is telling us so far. They couldn't be more different. The facts are very, very different. Very different from what happened at Mar-a-Lago. To completely different situations. Completely different, completely different. So completely different. These two incidents are as different as night and day. It is night and day, different from Trump, there seems to be a night and day difference here. It's night and day. How worried are you, that the classified documents issue facing the president will distract from Democrats overall goals. Sadly, this document taking from vice President Biden is going to be a distraction. A special counsel investigation will no longer no doubt be distraction for The White House from a national security Homeland Security perspective. It's a huge distraction. It's a huge distraction. You see how what they do here is they focus on one it being a distraction. What's the implication there? I love asking questions because it prods everyone to think me included. By using the word distraction over and over again, there's a wink and a nod that this isn't serious. We have serious problems to deal with. Yeah, problems Biden cause. Fentanyl, the border, inflation, the job market. Oh, Dan, the job market. What are you talking about? Job market's great. It is real wages are going down under Biden. You're making less money than you made when Trump left office. What are you talking about? That's just a fact. The distraction narrative, they say the nothing they say is by accident. Everything is done deliberately because they're activists. When you see them as activists as they are and not as journalists which they aren't, you can never unsee it. There's the distraction narrative, there's nothing burger narrative, and there's this is night and day from what Trump did. Yes, you were correct. What Biden did is far worse because Trump has a very serious whether you like it or not. Legal argument here in court that those papers couldn't have been declassified because he declassified him. That's not open for debate. That he has the power to do it. What is open for debate is potentially a legal argument that, well, there's a process and he didn't follow it. Thanks. Fine. Fine, I can see the point that that's fair enough that you would, as a leftist, if you're an honest left, this might say that. But again, it is absolutely not open for debate that he had the power to do that. We're arguing about the process. There is also no debate that Biden did not have that power. Therefore, he has no legal justification whatsoever for having these documents, none. There is no rationale. Playing stupid and dumb and no other kids did it. The mister Anderson beavis and butt head approach is not a legal defense. I didn't know. No, no, bro, that doesn't work. That's not a legal defense. Now, combine that with the fact that the papers that devastating angle we learned this weekend is that the papers involved Ukraine. Folks, that is a really, really significant development. Because Biden's son was working in Ukraine. And there were serious allegations that Biden threw his pressuring to fire a prosecutor looking into the company's son was working for, that Ukraine had figured out that Biden was the soft spot in the U.S. government they could use to influence pedal and get more money and weapons from the United States if they could just put Joe Biden. That is what they are hiding. Now it's not just the distraction narrative and it's not just the nothing burger narrative and that this is different than Trump narrative. Another narrative you're going to see out there is the Republicans pounce narrative. Now you're a regular listener to the show. You know we love Republicans pound stories. Why? Summed up in a short abstract when the media realizes they've got a monster Democrat scandal that they need to refocus away from the Democrats on. What do they do? They'll waste a significant amount of their print space and airtime on CNN and MSNBC. Covering the Republicans response. They won't cover the scandal. And that's done with a wink and a nod like the distraction narrative. That's done to get you to focus on mercenary Republicans who are just playing politics with this. Which is, of course, total garbage. We've got a serious national security threat on our hands with this guy. The Republicans pounce narrative. Will you be shocked to learn that ABC actually used the words Republicans? No, you wouldn't. Here's Mary Bruce and ABC who went to attack mode according to news busters. Republicans have shown little interest in investigating Donald Trump's handling of classified documents are now pouncing on the president. They pounced. Republicans, they pass, Republicans. It sounds more like a cat than an elephant when I do it. Hey gee, can you connect me in the back here? I think I'm like floating all over the place. There are pouncing. They're leaping, they're seizing their pouncing. You see why they're doing this, right? Taking the attention off the actual scandal because it involves massive global influence peddling and now putting the focus back on those mercenary evil awful Republicans who are pouncing all over this story. Folks, I got more on this next. I'm not going to let this story go away. This is a BFD and Joe Biden's own words. We'll be right back.

"Sense of the news. And try to radio, he's our currently and I'm Gary McNamara 8 6 6 90 red eye interesting Jason Furman, the Harvard economist, former adviser to the Obama White House, says that he believes his bill could increase inflation by .3% or others who believe it could be half of a percent or more just this bill, just this bill alone. Now, if it's 500 billion, like they expect it could be, it could be between .5 and 1% just on this bill just on this one bill alone, depending on how long the money is spent over, but it's really just reprehensible what this government is doing, you know, there is no there is no think about this with the Democrats. Nobody is complaining. I'm her one Democrat complain that this is going to be added to the national debt. And there's no way of there's nobody there's nobody paying for it is going to help as we said as increase inflation, which is going to increase the possibility of the fed increasing interest rates, which means we're going to have to pay more interest on the debt when it comes to our budget each and every year, which means there's either going to have to be spending cuts or more taxes being raised or money more money being borrowed, which means interest rates will continue to be high because inflationary pressures, everything about this is not good. Everything they're telling you is a lie. From the economic viewpoint because it was said, well, this is a and we'll get to the legal the legal reasons that they claim that they have which they don't have. This has got nothing to do with 9 11 where you could cancel debt. The federal government could cancel debt. If it's a war or national emergency, we're no longer on a national emergency. There is no you can not make the case that this is a national emergency based on the 9 11 law and that's what that's what he's trying to that's what he's trying to do. But the whole point that, well, if you if you forgive this debt, they'll have more money to spend and therefore the economy will go up is patently false. It fails any type of even liberal economic argument that exists out there and when you talk about the Obama economists, it's only a pure keynesian socialist that would believe that government transferring debt obligations from those who took it out to those who did not.

Did FBI Target Parents Despite Garland's Sworn Testimony?

"Breaking last night from congressman Jim Jordan, who's going to be joining the show next week when Charlie is back. From his much needed vacation, he's going to be detailing what he's uncovered. There is a whistleblower, a smoking gun with new information that shows the FBI used terrorism tools to target concerned parents. This is despite attorney general Merrick Garland's assurances to Congress, under sworn testimony, mind you that the Department of Justice was not using its resources to target concerned parents. And now a whistleblower is confirming that the FBI has labeled dozens of you as with a special counter terrorism label in its investigation. Now, I want to play some sound here to build this out. Now, how did we get here? Let's play cut one 12. This is Jim Jordan on Jesse watters prime time last night, play cut one 12. And again, if you're a mom, you're a dad, you're a gun owner, you're a Republican, and you're standing up for your kids. Oh my goodness, look out because here comes the FBI. And again, in a direct contradiction to what he told us under oath in the committee. And never forget that this Jesse, look, remember how quickly this happened. September 29th, the school board association sends a letter to the Biden White House. 5 days later, October 4th, Merrick Garland issues this memorandum that lays out this snitch line together, go after parents, and then 16 days later, the FBI sends out the email that's establishes this threat tag designation that was put on these parents. All that happened last fall in 22 days. When have you ever seen the federal government move that fast? So they moved that fast because they were going after people. As you just pointed out, just like the Obama White House went after a new Obama IRS went after conservative same dynamic here,

However, in order to outsource it, get it off shores, they went to China. And that's why the United States outsourced the bat fires research to Wuhan because there was a moratorium here domestically.

"obama white house" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"That often goes out on Sunday evening So there might still be some event planning in the works for this week but the president is expected to travel to Baltimore on Wednesday to start making the case for what has already happened in the $17 billion inside the bill in money for improving ports He'll be at the port of Baltimore But as they used to say here in the Obama White House they'll be talking and chewing gum at the same time or walking against the case may be for Joe Biden as he also continues the argument for the reconciliation plan David I'll mention to you this White House sees that as imperative in lifting President Biden's poll numbers just this morning we got the latest approval rating from the folks at Suffolk university and they're holding center showing 38% approval for Joe Biden That's only one point above below that we saw in October leading into the elections And the president has some work to do to get that number higher David he sees that through legislation So if you look at last week the president had a rough day I think it's fair to say on Tuesday with those elections particularly with the Virginia gubernatorial On Friday he had in many ways a heck of a day because he started out with really strong jobs numbers and ended up as you say just before midnight with this historic infrastructure Bill Is there a theory at The White House about how they start to get credit for what happened on Friday instead of blame for what happened on Tuesday Well yes that's the idea here and a lot of people said going into the election particularly in Virginia where we saw Terry mcauliffe lose that if only they had something to show for Democrats months and months of debate over this It could have ended differently The president is acutely aware of that And the of course the midterms are officially on now We've got another year of having this debate the president wants to show people David that Democrats can actually get something done Yeah I'm told a year to the day a year from today we'll have the midterms Thank you so much to sound on host Joe Matthew You can hear him every day at 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Bloomberg radio In Washington it is today is about the historic infrastructure Bill but in Beijing they're celebrating a different chapter in history as the 6th plenum of the Chinese Communist Party has begun And giving president Xi an historic third term is on the agenda Welcome now Wendy cutler She's vice president of the Asia society where she is managing director of the Washington office So Wendy thank you for being back with us Why don't you set the stage on this 6th plan And why it is particularly important Well this is the big really the beginning of the process for Xi Jinping to consolidate his power and a year from now to be elected for a third unprecedented third term as leader of the Communist Party and leader of China He's convening about 300 senior party officials They're going to rewrite the past hundred years of Communist Party history to make it seem like a lot of accomplishments were achieved and he'll start laying out his vision for his tenure which could be unlimited going forward So when did the thing we care about a lot here at Bloomberg is the economy and business with China Do you have any sense about what a third term if in fact it comes to pass And right now at least to me it looks like it's likely What that would mean for the Chinese economy And for that matter for global growth yeah I mean one area of concern is that as she consolidates his power he is more control over the economy and all decisions are really top down That can really stifle innovation discourage bureaucrats from proving licenses approving mergers for U.S. and other foreign companies and it could kind of launch a period where bureaucrats are so cautious and choose to do very little not wanting to stick out or somehow derail their careers Do we have a sense and will we get a better sense out of this 6 Plymouth about exactly how president Xi is going about balancing on the one hand making sure that he really has firm control because he's made it clear that particularly the Communist Party should really have a lot to say about private enterprise Does that And at the same time really keeps the growth going because it seems to be trailing off a bit right now It does I mean I think that's his dilemma The more control the more top down the less innovation the lesser entrepreneurship and potentially the less the less economic growth We did see today the October trade numbers in for China and exports are up I mean analysts have been suggesting that they have to come down at some point But wow are they strong And they are really helping drive the economy right now What about American businesses or western businesses more generally and they're willingness to do business with China Have they been chilled at all by some of the actions taken by the Communist Party and by the leadership over in Beijing Yes there is a chilling effect but when you look at surveys of U.S. businesses in China they're still optimistic They're making money and they say a growing middle class and economic growth and innovation So they're willing to put up with a lot of these setbacks and new legislation and regulations that are putting in putting being put into place for certain sectors easier than for other sectors financial services firms continue to do well in China as China relaxes its equity restrictions Whenever we have you on one day I want to get a sense of where U.S. Chinese relations are right now It wasn't clear for a long time with a Biden administration's policy would be I suppose that's evolving now Does a stronger she and entrenched she make it easier for China to work with the United States Well we're expecting a virtual meeting between presidents Biden and Shea in the coming weeks And I think that will give us a better sense of how things will move forward What will be key for improve relations with China or at least not a deterioration in relations is that his officials are given are empowered and agreed to make progress with our officials and it doesn't all have to be done at the leader to leader level That's not a recipe for progress or for deescalation One day I'm struck by the fact that we've come off the first week of cop 26 There are meetings continuing over in Glasgow news you speak President she was not there President Biden made a point out of that saying it's a shame that he's not here How can we make progress Does president Xi feel any obligation to step up to the plate on cop 26 President Xi is so focused on his internal situation So to me wasn't a surprise that he didn't go to cop 26 That said he knows that climate is an important issue He made some announcements in the lead up to cop 26 He didn't go far enough for most people but we'll see how the sun falls in the coming months Well I wonder how those are two are connected because there have been some reports that people in China are quite unhappy about the climate I mean you can certainly see the air quality in a place like Beijing from time to time Is president Xi feeling some internal political pressure as it were to really make some progress on climate top 26 or no Yes but he faces a dilemma because if he moves too quickly then manufacturing will go down in China and we're already seeing energy shortages which are affecting.

He is weary and he has a lost or misplaced his keys so he's trying to get into his home And has has has his driver help him to try to break into his own house And in that process neighbor sees. What's going on. Look suspicious to her so she called the cops and when the cops show up. I think henry louis gates was a bit miffed. If you will that someone would be questioning him about breaking into his own home. I'm sure he said. Do you know who i am harvard for. I'm sure that was part of the exchange But it's also sort of interesting. Because henry louis gates junior also walks with the came. He has a physical disability. And so the idea that he would be breaking into a home himself just did not make sense. And i'm sure a cursory look into the home could also showed you pictures of himself in the house in which he lived. There were a lot of clues contact clones.

Biden's paint things anywhere from 75 grand to half a million that. Oh, they think we're dumb enough. We're going to keep everything secret. So we don't have transparency and we can't monitor If any shenanigans are going on because it's all secret.

So I'm glad you asked me. I look. I mean, one of the important things is all of these people who were spying on the Trump team, the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team right from the Obama White House. Many of them are back in the Biden administration, and that goes to the president himself. Remember that list of DNA released About how even Joe Biden had unmasked General Michael Flynn's name from transcript the foreign foreign intelligence intercept, So I think that we can put a lot of things together. From what you know people like you and and and me and your great listeners have been putting together for the last several years. What? What It looks like to me and actually Harmeet Dhillon, who was on Ben, who's on Tucker. Last night. She made a good point. She said something like I think this is about Um, I think this is about indirect collection and, of course, or incidental collection. What it looks like is reverse targeting. They wanted to go after Tucker and they found someone that they could legitimately, uh, quasi legitimately target. That's how they collected on Tucker. That's that's Lee. Sounds familiar, right?

MPs claim it could be discriminatory to have Covid vaccine passports

"The concerns about vaccine passports tend to fall into two camps equity politics vaccine distribution in the. Us is already unequal. Even though racial data on covid vaccine is incomplete. Cdc numbers show that nearly two-thirds of people who received at least one dose or white. That could mean a disproportionate number of people of color being excluded from places that require a vaccine passport beyond race. There are other questions about. How axiom passports might discriminate unequal access to technology for example and there are other concerns for instance if you privilege people who are vaccinated. Are you discriminating against people who might have religious objections to get the vaccine are you. Are you discriminating against people who might have some medical condition. That makes them very nervous about getting the vaccine. So this this has emerged as a real threat and problem not just among republicans. This is a widespread bioethical concern. I did talk to zeke. Emmanuel the former advisor to the biden cova response. He worked in the obama white house a bioethicist and he said he thinks these passports coming. No matter what and that the do have value but all the bioethicists all the officials. I talked to say it's important to tread lightly here. And that's another argument not to mandate anything. Because you're further potentially widening those equity gaps that you alluded to

"Bidet administration will allow Venezuelans who are already in the U. S illegally to remain in the country. For now. NPR's Franco or donors, reports President Biden is carrying out a campaign promise to shield more than 300,000 Venezuelans from deportation. Biden administration says it's granting Venezuelans in the United States temporary protected status for 18 months because of the current humanitarian and economic crisis in their country. Benjamin Good. Dan, who was the top adviser on Venezuela in the Obama White House, says there's long been bipartisan support for permitting Venezuelans already in the U. S to remain here legally. Venezuela is a failed state. In every single measure, there's simply not enough food to go around. Hospitals had collapsed before the pandemic.

On International Women's Day, Biden Signs Gender Equity Measures

"Is marking the occasion as only a president can with more executive orders. His signature will set up a new White House counsel on gender policy. And roll back a controversial Trump administration rule that protected students accused of sexual assault. We're joined now by NPR, White House correspondent Aisha Roscoe and I shall want we start with this order on sexual violence in schools when we need to know. This order basically directs the Department of Education to look at our into conduct a review of all of its policies and regulations to make sure that an educational environment is free from discrimination on the basis of sex and also free from discrimination in the form of sexual harassment, including sexual violence. On discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. So basically, it's a review to make sure that all of his policies are aligned with this order. And as I understand it, it goes back to the former education secretary Betsy the boss. She and the Trump administration believed that people who were accused of sexual violence deserve more rights in an academic setting. And Democrats, of course, opposed that from the beginning. Does this order just revert the legal standard back to what it was during the Obama administration. So this executive order clearly seems aimed at undoing that policy from the Trump administration. But what it basically does is it directs Education Secretary McGill Cardona to suspend or revise any agency actions that are at odds with the new order from the White House. So it basically puts it in The education Secretaries court for him to look at the policies and to decide what to do. But it seems clearly aimed at eventually getting rid of that order from the Trump administration. Okay, more to come on that issue, I'm sure now another bite in order is establishing a White House Gender Policy Council. What will that do? Exactly? So this council will focus on ensuring equity for women and girls on diverticular Lee women and girls of color. This is a revamped version of former President Obama's White House counsel on women and girls. The name was changed to reflect that all genders can face discrimination, but it's basically a way of looking at equity when it comes to women. Well. President Biden, on

"Or G'kar. This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. President Biden has said racial justice is one of his top priorities, and today he signed four executive actions. He says they are some of his first steps to addressing systemic racism. We need to open the promise America to every American. That means we need to make the issue of racial equity, not just in issue for any one department of government. It has to be the business of the whole of government. Even before he signed those orders today, some advocates for racial justice were saying they worry the actions don't go far enough. Joining us now is NPR. White House correspondent Aisha Roscoe. Hi, Aisha. Hello to begin with described what the president signed today. Today's announcement is somewhat limited in scope. It's not as expansive as some were expecting. The one that may have some impact on mass incarceration is that Biden is directing the Justice Department to not renew contracts with private prisons. This is something that the Obama administration was going to do than the Trump Administration reversed it. So the Biden White House is going back to that plan. Also, he's directing her the Department of Housing and Urban Development to advance fact fair housing laws. And there is an action about respecting tribal sovereignty and infighting, a rise in anti Asian discrimination that we've seen in this past year. The president talked about how George Floyd's death at the hands of police this summer marked a turning point in attitudes toward racial justice. But today's actions don't address police and why not? So that's obviously a top of mine issue, especially for activists at today's announcements Don't address that at all, but but prepped the president's top adviser on domestic issues, Susan Rice, told reporters that there are more things in the works, she said there will be actions on criminal justice issues. Including policing in coming weeks, We have 1454 more days left in President Biden's first term. On, so give us a little something to do over the next few days. Rice is also leading a broad review of all federal programs to find ways to address these sorts of issues. You've been talking with advocates about what they want The Biden administration to do what they're pushing for. What are you hearing from them? Part of what by them promised to do on the campaign trail was a new commission on policing. We haven't heard the details on that yet, but advocates are already concerned about this approach. I talked about this yesterday with Bree on Wales. He's a political, a political strategist focused on ending mass incarceration, He said. It's too soon to pass judgment. But he pointed out that the Obama White House already had a commission that studied policing here's more from him. So for us the commission is not a solution. A new commission is not a solution for us. It's time to very much start to move forward in some of the things that we do know. Wells wants clear accountability for officers who engage in misconduct. Hey also said that, while ending contracts with privately run prisons is a step in the right direction, he said the administration needs to also in privately run detention centers for people facing deportation. Those detention centers run by the Department of Homeland Security are not addressed by these actions, and in the weeks ahead beyond the possible commission on policing. What else do you expect my becoming The administration is expected to take action on demilitarizing the police, you know, ending those programs that give local departments seriously military equipment that we see at these protests and there's some advocates are hoping that the White House will push for legislation that would go further and dealing with sentencing and standards for police policing. NPR. White House correspondent Aisha Roscoe. Thank you. Thank you. And the Corona virus. Pandemic vaccines will have to be distributed around the world. For most countries. The vaccines available in the U. S right now are simply too expensive and too difficult to transport as NPR's Joe Parker reports that is making vaccines made in Russia and China look attractive. There's a good reason China could play a key role in ending the global Corona virus pandemic. China has an enormous vaccine production capacity. Deborah Seligson is a China watcher at Villanova University. That enormous capacity is at least in part because China is an enormous country. And since public health measures have largely kept the virus in check in China, that means some of that capacity can be used to send vaccines around the world. There are going to be huge advantages to these Chinese vaccines once they're, you know, fully tested, and if they turn out to be a fact, if for one thing they don't require special refrigeration, and for another, they'll be cheap. But there's still that question of if they turn out to be effective. We just haven't seen the full trial results published yet. Abigail Copeland is on the faculty of Vassar College. She keeps her eye on Chinese biotech companies. The technology behind the two leading Chinese vaccines is decades old. It's an approach that was used successfully in the 19 fifties to make a polio vaccine. It involves growing the virus in a lab than in activating it with a chemical like formaldehyde and using that in a vaccine there, inactivated viral vaccine is based on research that they had conducted to develop a vaccine for stars and so that actually gave them a head start. SARS was a deadly outbreak in the early two thousands in China. Caused by a close relative of the covert 19 corona virus, But the virus causing stars disappeared so that vaccine got shelved. Hopeless. He's nothing nefarious about the delays and learning the results of trials of the Chinese vaccines. Since there's very little virus circulating in China to test their vaccine, the Chinese have had to turn to countries like Brazil, Indonesia and Turkey. And so when you're running that many trials internationally, it does take a lot of time to actually analyze that trial data. What's more, the results that have come out on how well the vaccine works have varied widely from 52 close to 90%. Without definitive results showing a vaccine works. Why have apparently more than a dozen countries around the world signed deals to get one of these vaccines? It's a measure of how desperate countries feel and how much uncertainty they face. J. Stephen Morrison is director of the Global Health Policy Center at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Most countries they're not throwing themselves hook line and sinker into partnerships with the with the Chinese. That's because there are other low cost alternatives. A vaccine. Made by Oxford University and AstraZeneca's also racking up lots of international customers, and it has been given some form of regulatory go ahead in several countries, including India. That country is also likely to have a vaccine candidate that will be inexpensive and widely available. But Judith Twigg says there's already another major entrant into the international vaccine arena. Back on August 11th the Russian government with great stand, Fehr announced the first in the world registration of a vaccine against Cove It twig is at Virginia Commonwealth University, and she follows Russian health policy closely. The Russian vaccine is what's known as a viral vector vaccine somewhat newer technology than the two leading Chinese vaccines. The Russians chose Sputnik V is the name for their vaccine. Tweak says They did that for a reason. They're very deliberately invoking imagery of Russia re emerging is great power status. We're back. We're at the scientific and technological top of the world, and we're ready to start sharing our technology with everyone. The problem there is that they had not only barely Started phase three clinical trials, They had barely started ramping up productions that was back in August. Twigg says production has ramped up and Russia now claims its vaccine is more than 90% effective, although data for that claim haven't been published yet for other scientists to scrutinize Several countries are ready to try the vaccine, including Argentina, Mexico and India. One thing is clear the world is going to need a number of vaccines to work if the global pandemic is really going to be brought under control. Joe Palka.

Most countries they're not throwing themselves hook line and sinker into partnerships with the with the Chinese. That's because there are other low cost alternatives. A vaccine. Made by Oxford University and AstraZeneca's also racking up lots of international customers, and it has been given some form of regulatory go ahead in several countries, including India. That country is also likely to have a vaccine candidate that will be inexpensive and widely available. But Judith Twigg says there's already another major entrant into the international vaccine arena. Back on August 11th the Russian government with great stand, Fehr announced the first in the world Registration of the vaccine against Cove It twig is at Virginia Commonwealth University, and she follows Russian health policy closely. Russian vaccine is what's known as a viral vector vaccine somewhat newer technology than the two leading Chinese vaccines. The Russians chose Sputnik V is the name for their vaccine. Tweak says They did that for a reason. They're very deliberately invoking imagery of Russia re emerging is great power status. We're back. We're at the scientific and technological top of the world, and we're ready to start sharing our technology with everyone. The problem there is that they had not only barely Started face three clinical trials, They had barely started ramping up productions that was back in August. Twigg says production has ramped up and Russia now claims its vaccine is more than 90% effective, although data for that claim haven't been published yet for other scientists to scrutinize Several countries are ready to try the vaccine, including Argentina, Mexico and India. One thing is clear. The world is going to need a number of vaccines to work if the global pandemic is really going to be brought under control. Joe Palka.

"Along, everybody. It is going to be a busy day tomorrow for soon to be President Biden and his administration executive orders to issue on the virus and vaccines, Immigration and this economy work, of course to do on the $1.9 trillion relief package he is going to send to Congress. So, as I said, we thought it might be a good idea to step back and assess for just a minute. Exactly where this economy is, as power changes hands while the recovery sputters and the virus remains in control marketplaces Mitchell Hartmann has that story. Joe Biden has kind of been here before 12. Years ago, he and President Obama took over in the midst of the great recession. If anything, this is even worse. University of Chicago economist Austin Goolsbee chaired the Obama White House Council of Economic Advisers were in a catastrophic Health and economic crisis. We're still as bad by some measures as the lowest point of the great recession. We're still down 10 million jobs more than 5% of all jobs before the pandemic. And as the virus surged and lockdowns return this winter, consumer confidence and retail sales fell. The economy started losing jobs again, but the worst is likely now behind us, says Douglas Holtz, taken who was the chief economist on George W. Bush's Council of Economic Advisors. There remains a tremendous amount of underlying strength in the U. S economy. If we can sustain those who have been out of work with the relief that we've seen Congress passed and deal with the virus, there's a good platform to jump off from Including lots of pent up consumer demand and accumulated wealth in the hands of higher income Americans. But Brad McMillan at Commonwealth Financial Network warns that low income households and business owners could suffer a lot more in the 6 to 9 months that it'll take for vaccination to induce a post covert recovery. People lose their apartments, their homes that cripples them and their ability to recover. We've seen tremendous tragic damage to small businesses. The longer this goes on, and the less people spend, the more of them are going to shut down and not come back, and that will only make the recovery harder and longer. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace. So Mitchell talked about jobs there in the middle of that piece. We are going to do some jobs through the program today, unemployment being As it is one of the identifying features of this recession. The national unemployment rate was 6.7% in December, down from a pandemic high of nearly 15% in April. If you remember that Still, though, it's close to double where we were before this thing, so Joblessness varies widely by gender and race. We've talked about that a lot, also by state, which is where we're going to spend some time today, unemployment as proxy for how uneven this recovery is. Hawaii is where we go first, an economy based mostly in tourism, of course, one of the highest unemployment rates in the country right now, 10.1% again 6.7% nationally. We got men who powers on the phone. She runs a business with her husband in Kona called seaQuest, Hawaii. It does boat tour for historical ng and seeing man arrays and that sort of thing. Money. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me guys thistles. The standard first question When I talked to Ah, small business owner. How is business? Businesses pour it. Businesses dramatically decreased, So let's put it that way. And I would go so far as to say, That's an understatement. And we're operating currently this week at about 5%, and that is definitely not enough to sustain us. It's been a painful year to say the very least. Yeah, I'm sure this this question of being able to sustain you. You have been going through this pandemic now, as the rest of us have for 10 months. You were as I understand it closed for a number of months entirely. Um, how much longer can you keep going? Um, I would say, thanks to you know some of the government funding that was made available to us, and we were quick to act on that we could probably sustain until the fall at this rate on guy think that that's Much better than most have fared through this. When we purchased seaQuest in 2015, the company had eight employees and when we shut down in March of 2020, we had 44 employees and business was doing 600% what it had been when we first started. So our business model was based on that growth. So when business was completely shut down, the model was thrown out the window and they became survival mode. When you've got a town that is entirely dependent on contour ism one way or another. You're looking at a very difficult time for the residents, and hopefully we survive this. The 35 ish or so people that you've had to lay off or let go. What are they doing now? Do you know A lot of them have moved away. Um some of them are hanging in there, You know, living off unemployment, hoping for another stimulus package like we just got so that be an extension of their benefits. But it's tough. Even my husband. He's even taken a side job to support us through this because, of course we had just purchased at home and mortgage. That was equivalent to what our income was at that time, And so now we have to sustain that. We hope to walk out of this with Our home and our assets in place. In other words, our boats building the boats, Aaron, etcetera, whether we're able to do that, we'll see on the topic of you and your husband taking on other jobs. Um Tell me about your reservations person and what it meant to you to be able to hire one. And then I'm gonna guess Now. You don't need that person anymore, Right? So you're speaking to the resolution person this whereas right before the pandemic, we had full coverage and that was a real milestone for us psychologically emotionally. And so now, where glued to the business again and that can be really stressful. We have three young Children were high school sweethearts, So I think that we're going to make it check back in six months, but but we have had stress placed on us that we could have never imagined. And so we're trying to stay positive. Yeah, And that's how we we see this. This is an opportunity for us to get back into the business. Dig deep, really figure out some new strategies and then next to diversify. We've learned anything. It's that diversification is critical and hopefully Should we ever face something like this again? There will be multiple revenue avenues for us to fall back on. Look best of luck to you. My new powers she and her husband on seaQuest. Why yet? They're in Kona. Manu. Thanks a lot. I appreciate your time. Here's my pleasure, kind. Thanks for having me Florida and then Nebraska are gonna round out our state unemployment serve a little bit later in the program traders on Wall Street in the meanwhile we're choosing to see the silver linings in this economy today. Shocking. I know. We'll have the details when we do the numbers. Yeah. Also busy today. Getting ready.

Because the Democrats stayed Shea boycott of Goya conservatives normal people, people who aren't insane, said Well, let's support this guy he done. He's done nothing wrong. And so there was a bike cop, Abi cut And last year, 2020 was the biggest year for Goya in the history of their company.

I dropped out of nice, incredible headstone that a 22 year old girl who got married very early to somebody who use drugs who was using drugs who just watched her husband get locked up that your instinct is I mean, I think I might just go crawl back into a Bag of drugs like I don't know that my instinct at that moment in my life with the odds stacked against me like that, that I would be able to stay sober. I mean, surely you must have thought I can't take this. I was nursing right so again, like my daughter. My daughter really was my savior and a lot of ways that Yeah. So you look at your mom and you say I'm gonna be a public defender and you have not graduated from high school. Right, Right. Were you a good student in high school when you while you were there? Yeah. I mean, terrible student. I you know, I think freshman euros. OK, sophomore year I fell off, junior. I barely one even though they put me in boarding school, And then I dropped out and the one saving Grace Kelly is that before I dropped out, I took the s A T. And I did really well, I always tested really Well, I'd always done what with standardized tests, So I have a G D high score on this 80. The day after I said, I want to be a public defender. I just took my transcript and my g e D certificate and my s A T score to the University of South Florida called their admissions folks and said, What else do you need for me? I want to go to college and You know, they walk me through it. I was able to get the application in and I was able to start in January of 2000 and five so about five months after he had been incarcerated. How'd you pay for it? Well, I'm still paying for it. I got beaten blooms. Um, you know, I got grants. We went on Medicaid and food stamps. For the first year. I didn't get a job in front of another single mom. There. We would trade off watching each other's daughters. And then I got a job working at a law firm, actually, so Jessica, I just cannot get over. The whatever internal engine there must be within you. That took this set of circumstances went all the way through college and then all the way through law school. Your confidence must have been increasing every year. Did you discover your horse power where you like? Oh, God Almighty like that can think big thoughts. I could put ideas together like I can make a persuasive argument. I have talents and skills. And brain power that I could throw at the world. Definitely. I definitely began to gain confidence. You know, I think for whatever reason, when I was younger, I thought it was done and You know, I wish more than anything that I could go back to that 15 year old girl. And just a look. You're smarter and you've got stuff to contribute. And your opportunity to do so is coming because I think there was such moments of self doubt along the way that you know I'm lucky I made it. Yeah. Okay. So you come out of law school and and your intention is still too sort of right wrongs as a public defender. Absolutely. I worked, you know, Starting in college. I worked on definitely cases. And then all through law school. I worked at the Francisco public defenders when I ended up getting hired by a California agency, habeas Corpus Resource center, representing men and women on California's death row and their appeals And then you had an idea for a piece of legislation. I did so fast forward to about a year out of law school, I met a guy named Van Jones, who was from the Bay Area. We started talking where to meet Fan Jones. I meant I meant, um rain county dining with Democrats dinner and hey was actually they're speaking about his newest book and the environment, the work he'd done at the Obama White House, But I want the event because I knew that he had done a lot of work on juvenile justice. So I came to the event, hoping to hear him talk about that when he didn't I came up to him afterwards and you just said, Hey, it's great that you love the environment, but they're still people in cages and I want to hear about that work, right? I want to know how do I shut down prisons? And we started talking and formed a friendship. He brought in a very unlikely partner for us in New Gingrich, former speaker of the House from Georgia's strong Republican and we started talking about how were we going? Affect real systemic change? And by the way, at the point in which I met van I really hadn't told people about my husband's incarceration. We were divorced. At that point, There was so much stigma around it that I literally remember. Not putting it on law school applications because I thought they wouldn't let me in if they knew. That's why I wanted to go there. Oh, I'm sure that would take tremendous guts to wear that on your sleeve. So you know van was really the first person who heard me and was like You need to start telling this story because you're very unlikely face for this issue. Normally, people don't think that incarceration would impact, you know, blonde haired, blue eyed girl from Marin County. You need to start going out there telling your story and you know, he really coached me on. How did you that It was very painful. At first. I still get emotional when I talk about it. But we really were able to develop a new approach. I think to the work, which was, you know, humanization and legislation, and we built a really great bipartisan coalition that frankly was led by people who have been directly impacted by the system like me, or, like the others in our group,.

"First especial dishing with me, Sebastian Gorka. I learned in the White House. The true threats that communist China poses. One man who's been talking about it for years is none other than Steve Man, and we had him on the For a whole hour here, he discusses how badly Biden is compromised. The convergence of all this shows you the nitty gritty of how the system works. It's not a conspiracy that shows you how the system works that they basically monetize access. Joe Biden, and they monetize it through many different avenues. The thing that's most shocking about this is how brazen it is and how the intelligence community and how the FBI nobody else looked the other way. You have 100 bite on that audio, and there's five hours audio on this. On this on the hard drive That's gonna be really starting today and tonight. Tomorrow is he's in your face. I mean, he knows that Patrick Ho and and Chairman Ye of China Energy Corporation are Chinese intelligence operatives. He calls Patrick Oh, the chief of spies, because that's where Patrick Post told him where he quickly let's be clear. He's not just talking about individuals working in the communist government intelligence apparatus. He's talking about people who happen to be his business partners as Hunter Biden, son off vice president by night. I want people haven't follow that he does to be clear. He was in business with individuals who are part of the Chinese intelligence operate. This. I mean, he knows that he mentions it kind of bragging about it. And then he Brahim breaks a day of national polls. The wire transfer from Patrick Oh, from Patrick Hope. Signed by Patrick Hope. So he's actually in business with Chinese Communist Party's intelligence apparatus. Hey, knows that China energies a front of Chinese intelligence, He's got that by saying how important Chairman Year So this is in in in in blazing color. You've seen this and now the details being backed up, and that's why Bo Belinsky. He's interview last night with Tucker Carlson is One that I think most important television interviews been done in modern politics. He sits there. There's the guy that trying for president of states at least all the poll says his 92% chance of winning. Is essentially not just in business but basically captured by the Chinese Communist Party, our greatest enemy existential threat to the United States, So we're wasn't just being a business partner it Zoe's shocking That's what was so impressive about Tucker Tucker asked great questions. But, he said in for the country You know people who don't follow the Giza. He was just so gob smacked and so shot almost financed the following question. All right, well, let's let's listen. That was a stunning piece of actual journalism for more than 40 minutes. Allegedly. It will continue tonight on the Tucker Carlson Show. We have striking audio. This isn't just about financial corruption. This is about a national security threat that leads right to the top of the Obama White House. Tony Bo Belinsky. Naval officer retired veteran, very successful businessman when it comes to the emails, discussing how monies will be divvied up coming out of China who gets what equity When it comes to a certain individual who is known as the Big Man. He is very, very clear. The big guy is none other than Hunter, Biden's father, Joe Biden, Let's listen. To Tony. But Belinsky on who the big guy is cut one very important, nay 13th that emails generated by somebody else to me in that email, there's a statement where they go through the equity. Jim bite into referenced as 10% doesn't say Biden. It's his gym. And then it has 10% for the big guy held by H. I 1000% sit here and know that the big guy is referencing Joe Biden. Um, it's that crystal clear to me because I lived it. I met with the former vice president of person multiple times, and I had been meeting and talking with Hunter Biden and Jim Biden and Rob Walker and James Killer. Tony. But Belinsky approached by the Hunter Biden family to come in and run a new company called Sino Hawk to Get in Bed with Chinese government investors. Communist investors is saying the email traffic where it says 10% of the monies. Put aside for the big guy. The vice president and to be protected to be managed by his son, H. Hunter. Biden. Why's that? A problem? What? Why is it a problem for American voters? Steve Because they don't know where the financial interests of the Biden families. The bind family is in direct financial business with the Chinese Come is pretty and this is what's so stunning that couple things number one. All that money is basically stolen from the slave labor. Of China. Remember the Chinese people are fighting for their freedom against this this dictatorship that only 92 million communists in 1.4 billion people of the night. You may in only 1000 or so matters of five families that control The Chinese counterpart, the same five families that were dominant during the long March. Back in the 1930. Here's the point. Vice President, United States and his entire family have a very deep business and financial relationship with the Chinese coming apart at the highest levels, and they've never disclosed it. In fact, What's so shocking about last night is the blatant lies, Biden said. Biden says I have no idea of my my son's done Nothing wrong, But I have no idea what he's done, right. I have no and I have no involvement in his finances have no involvement in his company. We now know from Papa Lynskey that Biden had to one on one sessions with Bo Belinsky tow walk through with the business would be with China. All he was carrying. All he cared about was China. He didn't really care about these up. They worked on other things, but what he's principally concerned about China. Why was that? Joe Biden was deputized by Obama in the Obama administration to head the pivot to Asia pivot to Asia was to shift American foreign policy away. From the Persian Gulf in the Middle East and shifted to what does existential threat is the rise of the Chinese Communist Party in China, and they're trying to take over the Eurasian landmass. It was an abject failure during Obama's administration. Why Joe Biden is in charge of it. The deal that he cut and he bragged about he's more than any person on Earth at a senior level. He spent more one on one time with chairman she 25 hours. He's bragged about this at the Council on Foreign Relations, It's on paper. And he negotiated deal that she came to the Rose Garden and sign the deal focused on cyber intrusions into our companies to steal intellectual property, of which American citizens lose $600 billion a year in intellectual property to the Chinese Communist Party. In as importantly, the demilitarization, the South China Sea or the militarization South China Sea. We know that both of those policies under Obama war failure Now we understand is a problem in negotiations and problem instruction, the deal and a promising enforcement the question's gonna be asked. Hey, Joe, You guys have said we're building a financial relationship with these guys at the time. Your son went on the trip in 2013 on Air Force two. That started to have these relationships and that by went 13 is two years after Peter Schweitzer's emails that from Heaven Cockney shows that they were taking representation. I'm senior level CCP companies and meeting in the White House pitching what they can do. This started early on in the Obama administration. Joe Biden was the point and the reason they wanted access to him. Obama designated him to do pivoted Asia. This is what's so shocking, not just the FBI and the financial community and the intelligence community. Why did the media and particularly why the Democratic Party? Where's Bernie Sanders in the populace that should have known that this is the heart of what the promise. Whether you are left wing populist or right wing populist. Everybody understands that the slave labor in China is the beating heart of the problem events. Why I call him Beijing By then, This is America. First with me.

"But that's a fight that the president is taking up. And rightly so now. Interesting thing happened yesterday afternoon. We learned that Attorney General William Barr had months ago now admin many weeks ago. I'll get the date for you. Had named John Durham, the U. S attorney Buck out of Connecticut had named him a special counsel designated him a special counsel like Robert Mueller. You know the special counsel to investigate all and it's a big brother thing about these. These probes these They love their ever expanding probes. I don't know why they like, ever expanding probes. Do you know why Michael Day like everything? It's explains why they walked funny they ever expanding Probe now is into the Bidens and the Obama administration and abuses at the FBI and the CIA and that now that is that John Durham has been designated Not just US attorney signed to investigate all the wrongdoing on the illegal Fiza warrants and the lies by James Comey and John Brennan and James Clapper and And so many others and for illegal Feisal warrants that were obtained by the Comey, FBI and Brennan, CIA and the Obama White House. And then the deep state After Obama left for illegal fiza words, no big deal. They're just find the words. And all they did was lie to the FISA courts and alter documents. They altered their own FBI documents, the 30 twos and then they regarding General Flynn's interview. And then, of course, they altered the CNN. Excuse me, the CIA document that was sent over to the FBI saying that Carter Page was in fact working with the CIA. On the FBI altered that they got this client Smith's lawyer who ought to be going to a penitentiary for this, we'll see about that. He's been charged, and he pleaded guilty to altering the document in order to railroad, a Naval Academy grad who was working as a patriot with the CIA to feed information to the CIA from his Russian contacts, and then The FBI corruptly corrupted that and corruptly prosecuted and persecuted Carter Page once again, a Naval Academy grad, but never mind. Never mind any of that. On John Durham now as special counsel. So this ought to be a you know, a boulder in the colon rectal cavity of the Biden administration, and I gotta I gotta say in the media is very upset, of course, because they're really just the Democrats. And, uh, this is this is big and it is good. And William Barr had done this some time ago before the election and didn't want to announce it publicly because he thought it might undo Lee influence the election. Remember James Comey before the 2016 election with his on again, off again, Hillary of Fair Whatever that was a fair weather and the Democrats. They're still so wolf gosh have only Comey hadn't done that Hillary would have won. Now. Hillary lost because she sucks. She's everybody hates her. Including her husband. And everybody that knows her and works for except home. A winner. Of course, you know, they step late with a jar of peanut butter and some VHS tapes and everything's good. But the that the Durham investigation becoming a special counsel investigation. Does change, and now he's got a lawyer up. He's got to get teams and teams gotta hire lots more people get a budget he needs offices is going to need phone's gonna have to bring in a whole bunch of trump donors. You know, just to make it like the Mueller investigation get like 2025 trump donors and supporters. People have been involved with President Trump's businesses in the past favorably, of course, and and put together a team of people to go after to go after Biden and really this is, just take the chain off. Release the hounds. Because now it's a special counsel investigation and the ever expanding probe. Ouch! Can can go after everything. I mean, it's you gotta look at Brennan and the CIA and the corruption the corruption there, and that Brennan is shamelessly out of the closet corrupt. He's a Soviet by you. You know, Communist voter who it raise your hand if you voted for you've ever voted for the Communist Party candidate. For the presidency of United States. Raise your head. I see nobody. Nobody raised their hand. Having voted well, there's Brennan in the back. There's penitentiary face. He voted for the Communist Party candidate for president, United States. That's why one of the reasons Barack Obama made him CIA director because you know, he knows he's not on our side and he's and he's not. But the Durham investigation Now being the special counsel investigation. Now it's President, Trump said. Many times during the Mueller investigation, he said out loud, he said, You know, I could fire Mueller it any time I could fire him. And the news media said. You better not fascist your Hitler. You're Mussolini. And And, of course he never did. And then the he was exonerated by the Mueller investigation because it was all a lie. It was all a fraud, which, according to the John Brennan Note to Obama was Jim DUP by Hillary Clinton because she wanted to distract from the email scandal that was roiling her campaign for Three or four minutes before the news media swept it under the rug. All they did was destroyed 33,000 emails that were under subpoena from the Congress. Congress had subpoenaed the 33,000 e mails and they were destroyed completely. What bleach bleach bit. You remember what with a cloth There's something Hillary said. Oh, the media. The media loved it. Oh, and there were lots of classified things in there and they had about Anthony Weiner's laptop while he's you know, engaging in courtship rituals with little underage teenage girls at their homes across the country. Good.
