Morgan Zegers Is Concerned Over the Normalizing of 'Woke' Ideology

"Little bit about your personal journey. So somebody who is a patriot whose father served this nation in uniform. What was that journey like for you at the beginning to educate yourself? What kinds of things did you learn that you were surprised at that you hadn't been taught? Tell us a little bit about that preparatory phase for you. Well, so for me, the most shocking has been looking back at how I was taught about a lot of really radical and pretty recent changes that have happened in our country. All things that have been normalized. So what I mean by that is, for example, think of the Department of Education. When I was in high school, we were taught that that's a very normal and fair concept, but in reality, it's unconstitutional and the federal government should not be having their heavy hand their boot over the next of parents and school children and the actual local school districts. That's what we're seeing now. So if you think about these little things that are happening on a day to today basis normalizing them. Now, what I always think about too is I graduated college in 2018, my first year that was 2015. That's not a time when this radical gender stuff was going on. But nowadays, everybody has pronouns in their bio. When I went to orientation and had my first semester of college, they actually taught us that, oh, what do you know? The science has changed, and it turns out we need to let you guys know. Sex and gender are actually completely different things. And it's important that you know this new finding that we have. And I remember sitting there in my classroom like, well, this is really different, and that's not what I thought. I mean, I thought they were interchangeable basically. And so they really re-educated us over the last ten years or so to a lot of this new woke ideology and they are normalizing it. That's the concerning thing to me.

The Fruit of Liberal Arts

"So a lot of parents have had this experience. You send your kid off to college, you're proud. Dylan got into duke. We're so happy. And then the kid comes back and hates not only you, but the country and himself and the chances of that child having a happy productive personal life go to about zero. That's the fruit of liberal arts in this country now. So it's a very common experience, but one mother decided to try and fix it. She sent her daughter to a town ten mount holyoke university of Massachusetts tuition, over 50 K a year. The child comes back totally programmed like a cult member. So the mom spends 300 bucks a day for a deprogrammer to undo the brainwashing and it worked. Annabelle Rockwell is the daughter. She graduated mount holyoke. She's now the development director at PragerU. She joins us. So annabelle, thank you so much for coming on. So deprogram suggests undoing unreasonable religious belief. Did you feel like a cult member after man holyoke? Tucker, thank you so much for having me. First, I'm gonna say that I arrived at mount holyoke bright eyed and bushy tailed so excited to be there in 2011 and is as soon as I got there, I was told that, you know, I should refer to myself as a first year, not a freshman because we were a historically women's college. I was left to note in my mailbox saying he may be a she, she may be a he don't assume anyone's gender, and I thought, oh, okay, that's new. Hold on a second. This is precious. It's an old girl's college. But you shouldn't assume that it's a girl.

Tim Tebow on the Importance of Aligning Your Priorities

"Tim Tebow. No kidding. Look, there he is. Hi Tim. Good to see you. I love how you want to respond to that area. I don't know. I don't know. I'm looking for dead silence for confusion. Look, you do so much. But now you've written a book which is a devotional, it's called one year devotional mission possible. And you were talking about a number of things just a minute ago, I think a lot of people struggle with a lot of the things that you were talking about. Like, you know, how do I live consistently? How do I, you know, because some people are really disciplined or some people it comes naturally to them. Other people are a little bit more elliptical in the way they pursue life. But you always talk about identifying your priorities. And so when you say that, what does that mean for you? I think it's so important, Eric, that we understand what's most important in our life and most important in our heart. And then we align our priorities based on those things, right? What's most important is that we're building a relationship with God that we're serving other people that we're making a difference that we're helping, then let's put time for what we say is our top priorities, right? And then it's also, I think, so important. And I go back to this, I mentioned it, that we also reframe our perspective and our mindset because one of the hardest things to gain in the easiest thing to lose is perspective on what matters. And I'll give you example. This weekend, I mean, there's so many families that are going to Thursday celebrate Thanksgiving. And then Friday and Saturday based on all the raibaru weekend, the Florida Florida state and Georgia Georgia Tech and auburn Alabama and Ohio State Michigan and there's literally going to be for 48 hours. House is divided and you know what's going to be a big deal and I love it because I love sports, but all of a sudden that's become a priority that so many people drastically changed their life for when ultimately it's hard to then remember hey Eric, it's just a game,

Tim Tebow Talks About His New 365-Day Devotional

"Have written a book now. This is you've written many books, but this one is a devotional, a one year devotional, it's called mission possible 365 days of inspiration for pursuing your God given purpose. So what is in this book? Obviously, if it's 365, these are obviously pretty short designed to do every morning. And by design, Eric is the goal was, you know, we have so much every day that is competing for our time for our goals. And I wanted to ride a 365 day devotional. One for every single day so that maybe we could do life together. And if it's someone that wants to pick it up, that maybe, you know what, we could start together and all of a sudden they start day one and you know what? It's something that when all these things are competing for your time that we choose, we choose what's most important, right? It's the start our day with scripture, which we start every day with scripture. And then we get into the practical. And honestly, Eric, it'll take you two to 5 minutes to read. But what's so important is I think that we shape our mind and our mindset with really our mission and our purpose and with wisdom in the right ways to start our day. And then kind of a second bucket that I wanted to help encourage people was to trust God in those situations no matter what's happening and really the third was, I want to challenge people, challenge people at times to get uncomfortable, challenge people to live intentionally, you know, challenge people to say yes to caring more about significance and success. And it's only two to 5 minutes every day, but I feel like it's just something where I feel like it's a journey we can all go on together.

Tim Tebow Opens Up With a Fun and Odd Story About Cocoa Puffs

"His name is Tim Tebow, and it's always a joy to have him on the program. Tim, welcome back. I appreciate it. How you doing, man? I'm doing all right. You're always busy doing wonderful things. You have a new book out called the one year devotional mission possible. I love that title. It's a 365 day devotional of inspiration. You have always been an inspiring figure, even before you were saying very much publicly, just when you were playing college football, you have this desire in you to inspire people. And the first thing I want to ask you before we talk about the book is do you remember as a kid when that happened or were you always like that even as a little kid? Because that's just a beautiful value and I remember when I just knew you as somebody playing college football, I thought there's just something beautiful about somebody who actually cares to inspire other people that he hasn't met or maybe we'll never meet. Well, I think I had two amazing examples in my mom and my dad that actually influence was something that they talked about all the time with us that every day you have a chance to impact the people you're around and if God gives you a big platform or it gives you a small platform whatever it is we all have the chance to influence and I remember as a very young boy we were in public and we were walking by the Nile and I put in a bad cereal. I believe it was cocoa puffs and then a dad in his son came up and said, hey my son, he saw you and I was only a few years older playing sports, but I was still young and he saw you and you were his hero and he put cocoa puffs and I was like, oh man, I knew I just impacted him in a bad way because that's obviously not a good thing for you and my mom used it as a learning lesson is look. You know, you're only and I don't even remember I was young and before I was even in high school and I had influence and how it impacted people and she just always talk about the ripple effects of all of our decisions

Katie Gorka Unpacks the Challenges of Domestic Marxist Threats

"Much of a challenge is it that this Marxist threat isn't in Moscow isn't in Cuba? Isn't in North Korea. But it's domestic. How much of a limitation is it on our means to respond because we can't use the U.S. Military? We can't use sanctions. How much of a challenge is this different location for the threat? Yeah, that's a great question. And I think it's a, you know, I don't think there's a straightforward answer to that. I mean, obviously we can not arrest our way out of this. We have to we have to argue our way out of this. We have to help more Americans understand exactly why this is so insidious. So I mean, the easiest way to talk about it is what's happening in the university. Because I think so many parents have had that experience. Thank goodness we have not. But I know many, many parents have had the experience where, you know, they pay a fortune or they go into debt to send their children to a university or college, only to have their kids come back after the first year, kind of hating the country and not wanting to talk to their parents. You know, we're letting the universities indoctrinate our children. We've got to wake up to this. And so yeah, it is a really big problem. And you know, the other unfortunate thing is, this has been going on long enough that really I think a good portion of our younger people have been indoctrinated into these ideas at universities. I mean, that's why we're seeing so many of our institutions kind of caught up in this.

It's a wonderful site, and it got involve yourself in it because it's a news site. It tells you what's happening immediately, and you can avoid the crazy. But day one year one of the new Twitter regime and Elon has fired everybody in the C suite, which is good that appropriate, not like the surprise to them. And now I hope he goes about abolishing bots and processing out people. And if I were getting the forest, that queen nut duke nut or oh no, I tweeted out yesterday. If Elon Musk wants your or my opinion about what to do about Twitter, a Starlink satellite will appear over our homes. And then the SpaceX shuttle will arrive to deliver us to the Starlink satellite, where Musk will be waiting in a white leather chair, right? That's what happened. But if I were king of the forest and at the Starlink shuttle comes in the message horizon SpaceX that I got to get on board, I will tell him require authenticated registration and anonymity.

"Steve Bannon has been convicted of refusing to show up and refusing to honor a subpoena. To Congress. So Bannon was summoned before the January 6th kangaroo court and like a God fearing American patriot. Steve Bannon told them where they could stick that subpoena. And now the latest information coming out of Washington is Bannon just moments ago. Was found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress. And he is facing a four month sentence and a $6500 fine. Now, the Biden the Biden administration wanted him to spend 6 months in jail, and they wanted a $200,000 fine, Bannon is going to be able to stay free while he appeals the judges, the judges ruling. Each contempt of Congress count carries a minimum of 30 days in a maximum of one year in prison. Now, here's what you need to know about this. There is a double standard when it comes to justice in our nation's capital, ladies and gentlemen. There's one set of rules for the Democrats and another set of rules for everybody else. And I say this because former Obama attorney general Eric holder faced the exact same charge as Steve Bannon, except a little bit worse because Eric holder was accused of harboring documents and Eric holder was also accused like Bannon of refusing to honor a subpoena and show up to testify. But Eric holder was not sent to jail. Eric holder was not fined. Neither was Lois learner, one of the most evil women in America. The woman who single handedly attacked and personally audited pro life groups, Christian ministries, and yours truly.

Do you think that was true? Did you know that by participating in our democracy by upholding your highest civic duty that you were the insurrectionists by putting it out there he was speaking to 81 million people who never entered the capitol building, who entered voting booths and entered their polling locations with the idea of voting and having their will be honored. He was speaking to that notion. He also spoke, remember how it began. Vice president Harris invoking the phrasing of the date that will live in infamy. Pearl Harbor, 9 11, and now January 6th. These are key moments, critical moments over the history of the United States of America to which other countries were looking at this country saying, what are you going to do now? He harkened back that very question again of what kind of nation do you think we should be? And it's imperative to understand, of course, in my opinion, that when there is really only one answer, it can only be a democracy. You know, famous people have talked about the idea of democracy is not the best kind of government, but I know of no greater one, and he was thinking about that very notion today as he spoke. And for an audience of one, he also talked about those who were fearful of incurring the wrath of Donald Trump. He was talking to Republican members of the Congress right now, who are looking at seeing the plain truth that the three articulated enumerated lies that he spoke about today, they're helping to continue that to what gain, fear of wrath and think about it, is a bruised ego of a defeated president, enough to continue to batter our democracy. I certainly hope not. Otherwise, we won't have one. He spoke to that today. I just want to point out that the president was rather really blunt in saying democracy was attacked one year ago today. And he said, Caitlin, he said, this is really, I think, significant for the first time in American history, a president referring to Trump, a president tried to prevent a peaceful transfer of power.

But now we're anticipating 50, a top 50 list in Rolling Stone because my gosh, I watched YouTube cats for an hour yesterday. That was well, here's what you do. First you, you scroll through Netflix, and then you look up and it's, wow, three hours. Three hours still haven't found anything to watch. And then flip on YouTube and hope that live cats channel just hope that a cat will walk by the screen. Yesterday, our into it, no cats. You know, I stand by my decision. It was still a good, it was a good watch. Live cats, YouTube, with no cats. 5. Number 5 is volcano mouse once thought extinct is actually doing great. If you've never heard of the volcano mouse, I know what you're thinking, this is a mouse that obviously it must spit lava that can burn through a bank vault. And we need to plan the volcano. Mouse heist. Well, volcano mouse heist, not easy to say. It's a great thought, but the volcano mouse is the kind of mouse living near mount pinatubo when it erupted in 1991. Scientists thought, well, ain't no mice surviving this, but they did science. They did. And now there's a study published volcano mouse doing well. What was it though? This study is not out about exactly how they survived the volcano eruption. What was it? Did they are they incredibly smart, incredibly fast, is it cheese? Perhaps eating cheese can help you survive a volcanic eruption. Four. Number four is the subway tuna sub lawsuit allegations. Lawsuit out of California claiming that subway tuna subs are not tuna. If that is true, what are subway tuna subs? I mean, if it's false advertising than a sub shop ought to be made to tell the truth, but also this is going to be one of those deals where it's tuna ish, like good enough for tuna and delicious, right? And the lawsuit is just gonna make it go away. Get in the way of me having a delicious sandwich. Maybe it's goldfish and eel, we don't know right now, the lawsuit people say they have run tests and they know what's in there and brother it ain't tuna. But to be continued, that's number four. Three. Number three, TikToker horrifies viewers. Oh, I just had to include it because the headline fantastic. TikToker, horrifies viewers by making mashed potatoes out of a bag of chips.

"Right Charlie thank you so much So as the U.S. capital is being overtaken by supporters of then outgoing president Donald Trump just one year ago today We learned we really leaned I should say on our D.C. team big time to understand and track what happened and continue to do so really in the days and weeks after it as well that included our Billy house congressional reporter at Bloomberg news who was at the capitol during the insurrection Billy joined us in the days after and share what was going on as he was in lockdown on that fateful day one year ago Here's some of what he said to us at that time I was actually in the House chamber when they slammed the door shut pulled guns and rioters were knocking and banging and cracking windows but I must say how security performed admirably They escorted the members out then they estimated us out and we were safe It was an incredible experience if not harrowing Billie has congressional reporter at Bloomberg news who joins us right now on the phone from Capitol Hill Billy I remember all those conversations with you and was thinking about you and our colleagues who were there You guys really gave us incredible information incredible insight As you look back at what happened when you were going to hear yourself speaking nearly one year ago and what we've learned and seen in the days after the insurrection what strikes you What really leached out to be is that there's still elected members of Congress who suggest that that was not a violent day that was not a violent insurrection And that they expect colleagues who were pinned in that chamber and elsewhere in capital complex that day to sit down and work alongside with them on legislation and other matters Even though they still a year later don't accept what is clear on video and what they sometimes themselves actually saw So that's if you want to talk about the gulf between the parties in Washington Only enlarged what was already a big split before the riot Billy that's exactly where I was going to go Because it does seem like even I hear comments from some members of the house right now and it's almost like January 6th 2021 didn't happen or they were living in some alternate timeline or alternate universe based on your reporting and what you described Is this something they really believe or is this what they think their constituents want to hear And it will get them reelected Well I met capital now and I just left a press conference with Republicans Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz and they just now launched a bunch of scenarios they say they want investigated that the FBI prompted the insurrection and to either disrupt GOP challenges to the election or to make Trump backers look at So that's where we are And we can't take that seriously Absolutely not But there's good point in what you raised is people they speak to at home and elsewhere These two actually travel around the country as sort of a Group draw espousing the stuff and people apparently believe them and or at least want to believe them And as we see in polling Trump is already with regard to another presidential run way ahead of anybody in the party And there are two of his biggest backers Does he speak for the party and I ask we just talked about a story about longtime Republican strategist Karl rove who's blasting Republicans who back that Donald Trump the false 2020 win claims that he made Who is the voice of the Republican Party today Well I'd say the most obvious in those active are those two Republicans appointed by Pelosi on the January 6th House committee investigating what led up to that riot and what occurred that day Liz Cheney the former vice president's daughter And of course Adam kinzinger Illinois But they are outliers in their own party Maybe even seeing their final Kendrick is not running again at the end of this year And change facing not only opposition from Trump but at home backers opponents of Trump back So but they are the most out front but they themselves are seen by many in their party as outliers Well we should note that Illinois Republican representative Adam kinzinger who just mentioned he's going to be on sound on with Joe Matthew starting at 5 o'clock today So we'll be sure to listen for that You mentioned representative Liz Cheney Her father former vice president Dick Cheney he was actually at the capitol today That was a remarkable and kind of unexpected but essentially there was a short session of the House which hasn't been in session this week I called a pro forma And Democrats were there Pelosi the Speaker of the House gave a few remarks But only Liz Cheney was among sitting members of the House Republican members in the room and but her father was with her The former vice president And that was kind of moving They sat together and afterward he talked to reporters about how proud he was of his daughter and how the leadership of the GOP party today in his view is nothing like what it was when he was in the house and he did serve in the house for ten years Hey Billy just got about 40 seconds left What do we as all Americans deserve to know What do you as someone who was there and continue to report on what happened What are we still need to know just quickly Well what I think we in Congress has done a pretty good job at this whole hearings multiple hearings on the security lapses I think what we need to know is what the January 6th committee seems to be focusing on is this 187 hours that day I mean minutes that day in which National Guard was not called to the capital reinforcements were not brought in and who.

It is their fault. That we're in this mess. Now, This is a radical departure from what Joe Biden was saying almost exactly one year ago. September 17th 2020, whose responsibility was it for all of the death? All of the ravages of Covid 19. Why? The president of the United States. Of course, the president had done his job. Had done his job. From the beginning, All the people would still be alive. All the peoples. I'm not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data. President Biden in the first debate with Donald Trump even went so far as to say that Trump shouldn't be president anymore because he bears personal responsibility for the 220,000 people who at the time had died of Covid 19 200. 20,000 Americans dead. You hear nothing else I say tonight Hear this. Anyone who is responsible for not taking control. In fact, not saying I'm I take no responsibility initially. Anyone is responsible for that Many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. And who throughout 2020. Was perhaps more responsible than anyone else for sowing the seeds of doubt about a vaccine that was developed so rapidly. It was none other than Joe Biden. From May all the way through Election Day. Joe Biden was downplaying the possibility of operation warp speed, developing a vaccine and openly saying that people should not trust it if it's being pushed by Donald Trump. To get asked the question. If the president announced tomorrow we have a vaccine. Would you take it? Only if it was completely transparent. But other experts in the country could look at it only if we knew all of what went into it. Because so far nothing has told us has been true. How are you going to distribute the vaccine when it arrives? When it arrives. When it's there. And the question of whether it's real one is there that requires enormous transparency. You got to make all of it available to other experts across the nation. So they can look and see. So this consensus. This is a safe vaccine. Is already you have what percentage The American people saying that the vaccine were there tomorrow. They wouldn't take it and it's not the usual anti vaccine crowd. It's beyond that. Because people are losing faith in what the president says. Think about. Pray. God will have a vaccine soon, but the only I don't trust.

Jacob Blake Jr was shot one year ago today by Kenosha police officer He has since been paralyzed. No charges were filed in the case, although many supporting and marching in Kenosha.

Um, And he said that one of the good steps that we've seen since then One of you know, there's different ones that he highlighted. But one of the ones that he really was pleased with was how much more we have been seen with body cameras and the fact that more and more people are starting to see them being worn by more and more police department. I think it's a step in the right direction. Um, this will not be something that everyone will agree with. But what body cams do it shows how everyone is acting in the particular instance. Where now you see how the incident got escalated and why the officers had to do what they do. It's really funny that we think body cams are going to show our chill the effects of what an officer has to do. But by law officer has to take action or their derelict in their duty. So all the body cam is going to do is show why I had to do what I do. How far I went. And then it will show whether it was legal with. You know what? Though some of the body cam when it reminds me of, and I don't mean to sound trite or anything like that, But sometimes when we watch these body cam videos, it reminds me of watching instant replay in a sport. And we're like cutting fractions of a second and all. Well, he almost did this there and look how I mean we're talking about, like, literally three seconds of video, and we watch it and pause frame by frame. Just no one can humanly think that quickly or do things in process that quickly. It just it's so the body cam is great. I'm all for it. I think it's phenomenal for both sides. It's going to help issues. Um, but oftentimes I think we we dissected way too much. Just no one processes that quickly by frame by frame of a second. Of course in is a whole different situation in real time. Yes, absolutely so steps in the right direction. Hopefully, maybe we'll see as we continue to See the policing in the community Efforts. Try to work together as we move forward following, of course, George Fluid and then the Jacob Blake shooting, and by the way, we had two deadly shootings in the past week here in the Milwaukee area, where you have a Greenfield police officer right now.

Between Saudi Arabia and one of them other countries or in the Middle East. And they they fight between themselves, which is an excuse to raise the price over here now for those who don't know OPEC was founded in a city called Baghdad. Many of it many years ago and headquarters not in the United States spend most of their time in the Europe or the Mideast. But, boy, despite the cost of this stuff really went up recently. And people just don't seem to want to remember. Why do they? We have a lot of friends that work in oil and gas and are used to you're used to. Yeah, and one of the things one of our buddies off the air will tell us about sometimes. Is all these foreign oil companies or should I say foreign countries that are buying up the oil and gas assets in the United States? One of those people is the nation of Mexico. Mexico has a state owned petroleum company, and they're responsible for what they the ones that just lit the Gulf of Mexico on fire. That's what happened. Yes. Some people were confused about that. There was I didn't see a fire in the Gulf of Mexico. You I think you were on vacation last week. I may have missed it. There was a fire, big ass fire to the water caught on fire. And I'm told that that was done on purpose in an effort to keep the, um actually, Kenny, huh? Water doesn't burn. Well, No, it was the oil that was burning. It was the oil caught on fire. And it was on the water. That's exactly right. Because I'm gonna save anybody. Email correcting, you know, I know, but we have you not seen the video. It looks like the water's on fire. Say it that way. Then it looks like the water's on fire. Now to be fair that didn't you were in the water. You would say it was on fire because you'd be in it. All right. So after that happened every every do nothing. High ranking member of the liberal media came out of the woodwork so they could blame capitalism. For making that happen. Which is a weird thing to blame after a state owned oil company caused an oil leak and then let it on fire. And to be fair, Mexico handled it the right way. That was wasn't much of a massive. It started and ended within a few hours. But again, a state owned oil company. Not exactly capitalism, is it That would literally be socialism. If I'm not mistaken. I have a friend who's single.

At the federal level, Biden's Justice Department has opened up so a civil rights review of the Minneapolis police Department but in his joint address to Congress by them set a deadline for Congress to pass the George Floyd build into law by this anniversary.

The Senate has approved a resolution letting Democrats advance plans to take up President Biden's coronavirus relief bill. NPR's Claudia Chrysalis reports. The move is a workaround to bypass Republican objections to another big stimulus package. After 15 hours of debate, Senate Democrats approved a budget resolution to fast track Biden's proposal to inject another wave of stimulus into the economy. Vice President Kamila Harris cast the tie breaking vote, one of her first in the chamber to approve the resolution on this vote, the ayes or 50. The nays are 50, the Senate being equally divided.

"one year ago" Discussed on KCRW

"One year ago, a large helicopter carrying Laker great Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven other souls crashed on a foggy Sunday morning it sent a shockwave through Los Angeles and the sports world. You know, like they say, you officially die when you for gotten, you know, And I don't think he I think he's living through all of us through every single person he's ever inspired. And Steve can take is remembering Kobe through art and everything else on the next greater L A Today it one in 6 30 on KCRW. This is press play on KCRW. I meddle in brand well, if you are frustrated with the vaccine roll out here in California, it's going even slower in most other parts of the world. Mexico has temporarily halted the distribution of the Fizer vaccine. The drug company could not keep up with demand there. Until now. Mexico had received fewer than 800,000 doses, and that's for a population of 127 million. Which, though is more than most of the developing world. Of the world's poorest countries. The West African nation of Guinea is the only one that has received any vaccine and only 55. People in that entire country were able to get them. Among the richest countries. Israel is leading the world it has given at least one does to nearly half its population here to tell us more about what's happening on a global scale. Is Nico Loose. Eonni. He's senior advisor at Oxfam. Welcome. Thanks so much for having me is ah, proud California and former You sail alone. It's It's great to be with you. Well, it's great to have you well. Let's talk about what's happening in the poor countries just mentioned Guinea a population of 12 million people, but only 55 have received the vaccine. What's happening in Guinea and other countries like it. Well, what's happening in short is a moral travesty. I mean, I hate to be blunt, but we're on the brink of huge moral and economic failure. Um, and the price is really going to be paid. By you know the life and lively hoods of people living in the poorest countries. Unless something changes quickly. You mentioned that only 55. People in the poorest countries have been vaccinated. That's in comparison to, you know, 65 million in richer countries. 22 million here in United States, and as you said, we should be frustrated. We need more doses. As quickly as possible. Um, but, you know, if you're living in Kenya or Bolivia or the majority of the world that lives in poor countries, you may be having to wait until 2022 maybe even 2023 to get access to this vaccine. You can imagine the desperation beyond frustration. It Z desperation at this point. Well, Even the president of South Africa yesterday accused wealthy nations of hoarding vaccines is that what's happening that they basically bought up a bunch of vaccine even more than they need? Yeah, I mean rich countries like the United States, Unfortunately, led by former President Trump have taken the position that they would open up their pocketbooks and use their political and economic might to hop in the front of the line to strike. Bilateral deals with companies were developing the vaccines in order to serve their own people First, it's what we call vaccine nationalism. There's nothing wrong with, you know, trying to protect your people from a deadly virus, but Out. It has devastating public health consequences in other countries. But let's remember at the rate of speed of these mutations. If we're not able to get this under control globally, the vaccines that work putting in our arms here in the U. S in the rich world may not work. Um and then just just on the economic side if you're globally integrated business If you work in the airline industry, you don't want to deal with the situation where we have pockets of ex vaccination and European You're dropping in and out. Unfortunately, stating pen, Where else? Yeah. You're dropping it in and out. I'm gonna just ask you this. What about the W. H O Kovacs Initiative, which aims to Really try to inoculate the poor parts of the world. I think the goal is to have two billion shots. In this year given out to poor countries. Yes. So the correct facility is really the antidote to this vaccine. Nationalism on Vaccinating 20% of the population of the You know a developing world. That's means eight out of 10. People be left out next year and potentially the year after. So that bar is really too low. And then it also, you know, um, is competing with, uh, these bilateral deals which I mentioned of rich countries, according the vaccine. There's simply not enough supply. That's why you know, we've joined organizations around the world public health experts racial, labor and faith leaders economist to call for what we're calling a people's vaccine, which would mean that the vaccine is free of charge to the public everywhere in the world. It would be fairly distributed first to those who need it most and then. Lastly, on this production point, we want to see as many doses produced as quickly as possible. As a global public good, and there's a facility within the W. H O called the Corona virus technology access full that would allow Companies to share their technology and know how of how to make the vaccines that kind of recipe to make the vaccines and so that certified producers all over the world who really start to upscale production. So it's kind of like open source software. In a sense, it's open licensing exactly of the most needed soft flash hardware in the world today, right? Well, I guess, uh, yeah or a generic or something like that. What? Why would the companies Be interested in doing that. I mean, it is their their intellectual property that they hope to make money off. So I mean, First of all, I think you know, there are a lot of really good people in these companies that want to do the right thing. Um, you know, they're looking at the history of someone like Jonas Salk, who gave away the patents. To the polio vaccine to the world, and he said, You can't patent the sun scientific discoveries is something that no one should should claim is.

"We have 1160 homes on the market 1160 So we are down 53% in inventory from what was a record one year ago. So, you know, just simple. High school economics. Jerry. If you have half the supply of any commodity, what does that do to the price? It's gonna push prices that Yep. So a appreciation is really you know what it's happening, you know, and the I think the other you know, the sobering number is that our inventory is 11 60 a month. But the 11 60 total homes, first half 11 60 sorry for the total homes, but the month supply of inventory. We do that that math. It's less scent of one month supply a 10.8. Of one month supply of homes available that if everything stopped right now and 8/10 of a month, we would we would be out. I mean, so. So what is that? 30 30 days in a month and 80% 24 days We have a 24 days supply of homes on the market hoof and then the other good news here pending sales. So what's in the in the hopper for next month? A year ago. We had 977 homes, you know, in line to be closed on. Well, we have 1293. Homes under contract waiting to close right now that compared to 9 77. That's an increase of 326 homes. That's more than 33% more homes. In the pipeline to close right now than there was a year ago. And that's just miraculous when we have less than half the inventory So we have, you know a total of 1160 homes for sale, but 326 more than we had a year ago that that's an increase of 32.3% in the independent homes for sale, and and we're not in we're in the slow time of the year is the slowest time of year. So if you are looking and you have not, you better get something under contract. I mean, the next 30 days or you're gonna miss out again. I'm just telling you, this is the slowest time of the year January what people get in the mail in January their bills from Christmas exactly credit card bills. Where did they get in the mail From February. They get their tax for your tax refund check and that all this extra money is coming in and then also, you know, stimulus checks also will help people with down payment. So and there's ah a lot of money coming into the economy and and that's going to change things. So now what about closings? Jerry? We have, you know, Western, half the inventory a year ago, In the month of December, we closed 1258 homes. This December. We closed 1530. Wow. So it's closings are up 21% when inventory is down 53%, and it just it doesn't make sense. Well and again that is one of the main drivers. There is great. Rates being as low as they are is fueling that fire. And that is AH, There's no that's the primary reason why demand is so high. Is just that. I mean, there are also other factors. People are relocating from different cities because they can work remotely And, you know, I mean, there's a lot of other ancillary factors, but that interest rate element is a key factor to this and then you know, we talked earlier about the winter visitors, and there's always a surge, especially in markets like Saddlebrook in Green Valley. That you know the winter visitors coming and that the inventory just taken off the market because not a lot of people buying in July in the retirement areas, But This year. I mean, that's just been low inventory the whole year through and you know way had closings. And But the price in Tucson Ah, year ago was 8 240,050. Today. We're sitting at 268,000. Now I want you to compare that to the average home listed in the United States, which just broke 350,000 for the first time. So the average across America I mean, Iowa and South Carolina everywhere when you average all that in The average sale price is $350,000. And here we are in Tucson, Arizona at 2 68. Does that make us kind of show up on the radar? You know, we're one of the top 34 cities in the United States for population and you don't have to shovel snow here this time of year. 330 days of sunshine is a big selling point right about now. And you know this weather. It's very, you know, cool. When I first.
