"Most of them are women received secondary trauma and the reason why they get secondary trauma in reporting is because people will say. Well what were you wearing will. How much did you have to drink. But were you flirting. And so we have to be so diligent in in having the kind of conversations that really put the onus on everyone and i would say especially our young men because our young men are not given the tools that they need to make good choices in relationship and they saw her more than anybody. I mean they don't suffer more than the victim but they suffer in the long term because they've been told a message that is false so for example in ornstein book when she interviewed these young men when they were in college. They were all saying you know. I can't even have sex with my girlfriend because i'm so used to masturbating to pornography. I can't i i wanna loving and trusting relationship. I can't even do that. I don't know. I don't know how to have regular. You know not regular but non-violent sap so it really is it really is something that we've got kind of broadened the lens i think and look at from a lot of different angles in order to You know boy victim blaming for sure but in order to empower all genders you know. I want to be clear. I don't. I'm not blaming the victim or blaming the young girls for following their intuition In a lot of respects the guys who are abusive also have that intuition going and know the they spot a a willing victim pretty easily and that and they grabbed. They tend to find each other. And that's part of trusting your gut. I think that part of the conversation is not only trusting. You got just knowing your intuition but also knowing your own proclivities towards wanting something that is is might be harmful for you and i think in some ways that danger is is deductive in itself that knowing that it could be dangerous for me to get into this in some ways is makes it more attractive and so but I want to go back to to something you said before. About and i forget what exactly he said that made me think of this but when i was a young man and it part of.

"Didn't like i can't believe i have to be here in this foxhole day and night so now can you do imitations of eighty-seven-year-old jim inhofe and eighty six year old. Richard shelby guys. I don't know why mcconnell Mitch mcconnell would would you're talking about here is impossible. I mean we. I couldn't keep people there. I give up okay. That's mcconnell giving up and if we had to do this. I mean i it's i i'm saying the guys you know i'm cold in this foxhole. Can i get like you know. Leave now and get an apartment and warm up and have something to eat and then come back to the foxhole. No we're in the battle of the bulge or thome it's like you know. Hitler didn't end our democracy. The confederacy didn't end our democracy. The mitch mcconnell is going to end our democracy grape this clearly appropriate at this time. The worst thing that happened to congress and recent decades. It's been the routinization of the super majority requirement. The what innovation the routine nine. And now you know like a routine okay routine okay i got it a normal and it's i was in a root cellar for a while and routinization never a hendin it utterly destroyed majority rule and in the congress and this is This is the way to go after and build a movement behind it once people see it in action and i think democrats talked to automate the move on it and lana come I mean some time and In the first two years administration after they abuse it. I mean that's the kind of normal saying earlier. make them abuse it. Make them abuse it. Make them abuse it until everyone goes. Oh come on guys. Come on mean that even joe because joe has said exactly what norm said he said. I don't want i won't vote to end the filibuster. I will vote to modify it. And that's what we're really talking about and actually two and again. I think it's restoring it to what was supposed to be so in a way and that means in a way strengthening it so there. So we win. So let's make a movement everybody my listeners here everybody be cognizant of this and then shouted on the street. Hey you going down the street you know how we can amend the filibuster without ending it so the mansions happy and the personal. Get away from me. I'm just trying to go to mcdonalds. i listen hard. Democracy is is genuinely in crisis. And it's very depressing if Republicans are this shouldn't to yla the rules and norms and basically ignore the popular vote. That's the real concern in in Both elections and they are the trick is to cite the public about. What's going on to increase the majority's and In the meantime work on returning the senate to a body of deliberation and legislating okay. We'll do that few solve everything norm. I'm a. I have nothing to add to that call or justice. Yeah but boy oh boy You know mccown. This is worse than it was in two thousand nine. This is worse than it was in two thousand twelve. When you guys wrote that this is really bad. Well and one thing we can add here. Al is that we focused more on the republican party in the house and senate at that point. Now what we've seen is that this is like a virus spread in the most virulent way to states and to the party at the local level of the cult at the local level and to the public as a whole the fact that even now seventy percent or so of republicans believe that the election was stolen that almost a third say that if your approach to the world is endanger violence would be acceptable.

"More on how you can use the limitation techniques used by the fbi to negotiate a pay. Raise checkout episode four. Sixty seven with jack shafer on the jordan harbinger. Show welcome back. We're talking to norm ornstein and tom. Man hey norm should we talk about our filibuster. Know our proposal. Why why don't you describe it sure. Well first let's say that. You know joe mansion has said he did it i in an op. Ed in the washington post then wanted in west virginia paper and he said it multiple times. I will not support any change in the rules that ends the filibuster or weakens it so The approach that we have taken is designed to make it clear that this is not weakening. the filibuster you could argue that it's restoring it because it means that the burden falls where it should on the minority a whole idea here. Is that a minority that feels intensely about something but doesn't have majority support either in the senate or in the country that you can Pay the price of Going all out and making sacrifices so that you can shed light on it and change the public and change the senate right now. Of course the burden is entirely on the majority and as you have pointed out many times al your revelation on this goes back to when you were new in the senate and leaving on a thursday afternoon and went over to be friendly to senator. Jim bunning the republican Senator from kentucky and said see you on monday and he said no you. Won't you have to be there. I don't because it's a cloture. Vote and there. We see it. And we saw with robert byrd coming in in his wheelchair Probably a shortening his life because Mitch mcconnell forced the sixty to be there and what we mean by. That is right now. The way it stands is you need one senator to say i object and you have a filibuster and then you need sixty senators to end it and what you and i have been suggesting. Is that instead of sixty two ended. You need forty one to continue the filibuster so the burden is so jim. Bunning would've had to have shown up. And i wouldn't have had to so right so i could stay minnesota and campaign or you know..

"Think sadly when you have a fifty fifty senate you've got to have it. Every democrat with you and mansion may be deluded but he's He's got to be out and mansion is one of the fifty Package that they pass the relief. Bill right And the question is will match do that again. Say on infrastructure infrastructure reconciliation for the listener. I most our listeners. I think know what what that means. But reconciliation is a procedure where you can pass something with a simple majority and has have to do with budget but and let me ask you guys this and at because you guys are on procedure in congress could you. Could you find a way to put part of The for the people bill inside a bill like an infrastructure. Bill where you're saying. Something like okay States get this much money for your election infrastructure. Get this much money but you have to take it to get highway funds And you have to buy the rules. So is there a way this this would be called creative legislating and my my argument is if chuck schumer is going to be jewish lbj. He's going to have to do he might have to do. Some crater. legislating is am. I just a shouting down a canyon or something yes zero. You're right and in theory. The a majority in the senate could alter the reconciliation rule which includes the byrd rule and You know requires that everything be related to spending in a certain fashion and if they came up with a creative solution like you suggest the even if the parliamentarian said no that doesn't fit of a majority could overrule the parliamentarian. But you have to have all fifty on board with something. That is extraordinarily disciplined. And i don't think you get joe mansion for that Either by the way the republicans did change the rules for reconciliation in order to get their tax cut in and seventy one of the things that continues to frustrate me about The press and we took on the mainstream media very directly in the book. It's even worse than it looks for the both sides. Lost cam talked about earlier but even now there's this sort of drumbeat which you get from mansion but also for many reporters look if you change the filibuster rule than it'll come back to bite you because the republicans will use it in ways. You don't like and that mitch. Mcconnell had the chance to change the filibuster rule in the first two years of The trump administration and didn't as if he would abide by any norm. What we have seen with mitch. Mcconnell is the norms. Me nothing to him. If there are goals he wants to accomplish. We saw that obviously with the outrageous behavior on supreme court justices but the reality is. He didn't change the filibuster rule on legislation. Because as. Tom said he didn't need to you. Wanted the tax cut. They changed the reconciliation rule to get their tax cut. You wanted the judges. He changed it for the supreme court and if he had had another set of great legislative objectives he would have rolled over the filibuster rule Right away so schumer needs to give a little bit of time for Mansion to be convinced that joe biden has done what he could to try and work out a compromise. Bipartisan plan on infrastructure. Before you move on and one other thing. I would say al. Is that for all of the kabuki dancing that went on over the affordable care. Act the two and a half months of fruitless attempts to get bipartisan support. One bottom line there..

"Package making it clear that they weren't serious. We just saw the negotiations over an infrastructure bill which has wide bipartisan support and support from three fourths of americans and the republicans came up with a counter offer that was about three hundred billion dollars in new spending. Which was you know about. A fifth of what democrats had wanted and eight made it clear that the bottom line for them was not a single change in the Generous tax cut. Bill passed in two thousand seventeen. So nothing serious there. Can things get done some things. That are below the radar. We just saw this so-called endless frontier bill on china. Competitiveness has with wide. bipartisan support. Anything significant anything that would give joe biden little traction in the country anything that would solve problems in the country. That are big ones. They're not gonna go for and mansion lives in a in a in a dream world in believing that they will that takes us back to the question. What in the world is in the minds of joe manchin. Does he really believe what he's saying. Because what he's saying is patently untrue and flies against the experience he himself has had him. So the reality is he has can have influenced by playing ball in the end you can have a lot of them and it's perfectly obvious that the filibuster while some previous times with him for party coalitions and and the rest may have encouraged some cross party talk and support In this environment of new republican party led by mitch mcconnell and with the broader influence Of the republican party. It just isn't gonna happen and so when he's saying is ridiculous so why is he saying. Why I don't even know that he wants to run for another term But my god bless. Listen to me. The demon in in the history of of congress and american democracy. Nor do you have any idea why he just won't say okay. This is what object to in the bill and maybe we can agree to take that out. Why is he even refusing to say that this is about some. There's some stuff in that bill objects to so let's sort of take the rosiest possible. Interpretation that mansion is playing a long game and his machiavelli and and wants to do whatever he can to bring republicans to the table. That he'll let it go for a while That we'll see if he can get that support on of the infrastructure bill that he really wants to push the john lewis voting rights act which he believes in strongly and has one republican cosponsor and has said repeatedly that he's sure there will be ten there and then if that happens you can begin to negotiate on the other major bill on voting The for the people act in the past. He has indicated that he wouldn't support At least campaign finance reform in this bill and he's indicated some Skepticism about the bipartisan redistricting commissions. But right that right now. He's not willing to talk about what he would do or what he wouldn't do. I frankly a little frustrated with chuck schumer that he didn't move this -ly to bring up some of these bills including for example the manchin toomey gun bill and let the republicans filibuster that mansion of course has already expressed frustration and anger that the January sixth commission. That passed. The house with bipartisan support. That gave the republicans everything. They wanted that. He supported strongly was filibustered to death by the republicans..

"To discriminate in voting on the basis of race. Already and so. I think it's unnecessary. Here's the thing discrimination. In voting based on race has been illegal eighteen. Seventy you see it's the fifteenth amendment. Here it is. The right of citizens of the united states to vote shall not be denied or bridge by the united states or by any state on account of race color or previous condition of servitude. Well i guess mcconnell's right it's been illegal in this country to deny bridge people right the vote count to raise. You know since eighteen seventy so. What's all the fuss. I guess there haven't been any problems in the last one hundred fifty one years. How awful is this man mcconnell. Look we have to pass the john. Lewis voting rights act to restore what is called pre clearance. Now what is what is pre clearance. Well it's really frigging borton pre-clearance Was written into the original nine thousand nine hundred sixty five voting rights act. Basically pre clearance applied to certain states in which had a history of discriminating against people because of their race or color states like alabama mississippi or alabama or south carolina or louisiana or georgia or north carolina. Virginia those states having in common. I wish i knew my american history. Oh yeah yeah yeah. Yeah they're on. The confederacy gladly. All had a history of denying people of color the right to vote after they freed them. Now how how have they do that. They do that in in these states. Well they got creative. Take a state like mississippi. They would routinely administer impossible literacy tests the black people. Now i'm seventy years old. And i remember this stuff. There was a a great black comedian godfrey cambridge Of whom. I was a huge fan because he was very funny he also he was a satirist and godfrey cambridge would tell this story about a black guy trying to vote in mississippi and the poll workers stops the guy and says you're going to have to take a literacy tests sun and a black guy says okay and the poll worker holds up a copy of the gays berg address and says can i read this and the guy says okay.

These guys have been two of the most respected political scientists among republicans and democrats for decades and decades until about a decade ago when they wrote a groundbreaking book.

And tom delay but During the obama administration they ceased to become a political party. That had any mornings whatsoever in in terms of serving the american people Mitch mcconnell stated very clearly right. After obama's election that his goal was to see to it. That obama was a one term president just as his stated intention now is suspend one hundred percent of his time fighting. Every bit of joe. Biden's agenda so tom enorm- wrote their book.

"When interest rates are low. But it's going to add astronaut to the debt and unless you address the revenue side at some point that will get much worse. Well you know what norm what tends to not be addressed enough and i know a lot of fiscal conservatives who are not completely opposed to paying some additional taxes. But what they're not hearing is anything about smarter spending creating more priorities. A lot of these folks wouldn't be against the idea even of a of a universal health care if they thought that it was a thorough policy that involved perhaps spending a little less than some directions rather than just charging more to the taxpayer. I will say bill. The i think the real challenge. We have on that front is. You've got a few buckets in the federal budget. You have the discretionary domestic spending bucket. You have the discretionary defense bucket. And then you have the bucket of what is loosely called entitlement spending but that is basically social security medicare and medicaid and the reality is that on the discretionary domestic front. That's been cut back dramatically in terms of its growth as a share of the gdp. Were back to where it was before the nineteen sixties. The other challenge of course is what you do about. Social security medicare and medicaid. One of the things that we've seen is that in the states that accepted the expansion of medicaid in the aftermath of the affordable care act. Their healthcare costs have actually gone way down and the rural hospitals have been able to open and in the states. That didn't accept the medicaid expansion. The burden on the states has grown dramatically. The other part of this is in the aftermath of covid. All of the states that have their own balanced budget requirements. Are deeply in. The red are gonna need some help. You know we can begin to talk yet again. A little bit further down the road about how we get the trade off that we've had out there as the strongest possibility since two thousand nine if not before. Which is you. Look in a smart way at social security and medicare then ad revenues. I have sympathy for people who are fiscally conservative and socially moderate or liberal. It's hard to find a place in the political system. Now where you feel those concerns being felt but those are ones that are going to have to wait a while and remember on the socially moderate side we have a supreme court that is likely to take a whole set of actions that are going to leave people in that category extremely upset. And i'm not just talking about choice. One of the cases the supreme court's gonna hear very soon is about adoption rights for lbj bt couples and families. I wouldn't be surprised if they a position. That's not very favorable to those who are socially moderate or liberal. They could revisit gay marriage and they're certainly going to at least accept significant further restrictions on abortion. So we're going to see people who have that balance of us which is in many ways reflects a larger of the population being disappointed on all fronts. We're gonna take a break.

Tae back and bill kurtis for real conversations with the medical professionals who have their finger on the pulse of healthcare in the modern world available on all your favorite pod casting platforms produced by kirk. Oh media welcome back with norman. Ornstein been settled ready that trump with his eighty million twitter followers and his seemingly lack of desire to be known as a classy exiting president. Who might have accomplished some things for people who wanted him to fulfill his promise but as proceeds one of the things that it's already been told that he's saying is running again in four years it has any other president. Ed in our past been voted out of office and then tried to run again. Yes most famous example of grover cleveland. Not only did he run again but he won he served one term won the popular. Vote the next time but lost. The electoral vote in came back for years later and one is actually fairly successful president but there have been other examples of presidents who've tried teddy roosevelt tried. He tried to come back afterwards. Ulysses s grant ought about coming back and trying so there have been other examples but certainly grover. Cleveland stands out as successful. What when did this sort of tradition of presidents stepping down and not really speaking at all during their successors term. When did it start that. There was a tradition of former presidents. basically retiring in saying nothing. that's more a personal attitude. People like dwight eisenhower. Just wanted to facilitate the next president and not get in the way. But there's been a lot of presidents overtime who have remained involved in remain vocal. And of course even your example of obama. He certainly been vocal the last few weeks. So it's not necessarily a historical norm often. Presidents remain active. another famous. one would be john. Tyler who not only remained active but he ended up becoming a senator in the confederacy and he was a former. Us president so he remained very vocal and active on the slavery issue. So you know. It's been a norm that president of followed generally in part because of a belief that if while they served the former presidents and tried to undercut them would have made their lives more difficult. Jimmy carter hasn't particularly followed that and you know. He's spoken out quite actively in ways that frustrated democratic and republican presidents and times but generally speaking the modern era is one where especially because presidents had bigger bully pulpits and former presidents. They've tended to try and stay out of current controversies. I think donald trump is going to form his own media. Network i think is going to create a hyper wing. Populist network that will have television radio and social media. It will position itself to the populace right of fox. He will probably bring over. Stuart varney lou dobbs mark levin and some others you know if he gets backers and he will have backers. You could buy any television network. That has a broad reach on cable.

So we don't have the landslide that we hope for which would have covered not just the presidency but the house the senate a number of state legislative chambers and other offices. We are now at a point. Though where with biden winning the popular vote by what is likely to be more than five million. What we're getting is a an electoral vote margin big enough that the mischief that could have followed from a closer electoral vote contest with republicans. Doing all kinds of things to try and throw the election to the house of representatives. Just is not a possibility at this point and margin big enough. That biden can claim that he has the ability to move forward with what we hope. We'll be bringing the nation back together again in a way that we haven't seen for some time. Well let's look a shorter horizon for just a minute at. Has there ever been a president. That didn't really accept being elected out of office. No not in. This sense is never been any precedent. Like this we've had some. That have been bitter. John adams refused to go to the inauguration of thomas jefferson very blatantly very rudely but john adams was always route. But nothing like this. No activity of where you're actively reject the legitimacy of the election most famous example. Probably that would be grover cleveland. Grover cleveland was the incumbent president. He won the popular vote for reelection. But in the weird twist. He lost the electoral vote. Even he accepted that and gracefully stepped aside. You know the question. I have norm for you is as a country looking to move on. What do you think we should be expecting from mr trump. even if he does peacefully. Leave the office whether it takes a tranquilizer in a net or some other fashion. Do expect some disruption and kind of continuing cantankerous sort of approach so we know from donald trump's statements in the aftermath of the election statements that even warmly cautious media outlets. Were saying were a pack of lies about the election being stolen about how the only legitimate votes were the votes that he got statements that have been picked up on by a lot of people who are really odious and dangerous that we're not likely to see that chain to be blunt and brutal. Donald trump is a narcissistic sociopath and narcissistic sociopaths. Especially those who have been there for their entire lives are not going to change. Very much is gonna be bitter and resentful maybe. At some point we will see him go through the fabled five stages of grief as it becomes clear that he's lost but there's going to be a long leg before we get to acceptance and we know something else once we're at the point where the larger community has accepted that joe biden is the president elect donald trump. I is gonna follow his instinct which is to do rallies every single day or as much as he can to continue to bask in the adulation that he gets from those people who still believe that he is a god. There is no incentive for a donald trump to turn a well running country over to his successor so that whatever good happens in the aftermath. We'll have the credit going to joe biden and not to donald trump. his incentive is to leave a scorched earth or biden but also to use every bit of his executive power along the way to either accomplish. His goals put roadblocks in the way were by. Trump is going to pardon himself and as many people as he can were around him. His family members his cabinet white house staff and others. there's gonna be a tremendous incentive. The make sure that evidence that could be or him or them is not to be found. Can you pardon someone for a charge. That hasn't been levied yet. Yes you can. And the best. Example of that is gerald ford pardoning richard nixon. Remember though that apart only affect federal offenses and we know that the district attorney in new york city attorney general in new york state are investigating him for potential crimes committed before he became president. We've got a lot of things going on there that are going to make donald trump very angry and upset when you look at the the brilliance of his methods and then you listen carefully to his press conference from just after the election. He said a lot of things that i think are points that we should pay attention to because we can basically predict the future. He quoted election interference by big media. Big money and big tech. I thought that was pretty telling of who he's going to. State is the cause of a loss that he won't accept.

"Two choices for a free, informative booklet and DVD. Hey, Dr Lederman, we're back. We're back. We just talked about a woman who had two years of chemo. Don't work surgery didn't were cancer's back. And then this Doctor. The chemo doctor didn't have the strength or the fortitude to tell the patient the truth that the chemo didn't work. So why are these hospitals and doctors giving so much chemo? Why are they doing it? Well, there's a whole Siri's of exposes now, though. New York Times Very prestigious paper, written by Katie Thomas T H O M A S and Charles Ornstein o R, and S T E i n Over the last weeks on DH. I think if you had doubts before you can open up the paper, you could see the medical director the chief medical officer, the doctors in charge of all the doctors and the medical care. One of these big hospitals has now been exposed. There's a doctor already is making you make it a million and a half dollars a year. He's on the board of six. Pharmaceutical companies. Remember when you sit on the board of a company? First of all you're paying. So you got $3 million just to sit on the boards of those companies, but also to sit on the boards of a company means you're responsible for the finances of the company personally responsible. So there's a doctor whose chief medical officer at one of the biggest hospitals responsible for all the care and the doctors. And he's on the board of six pharmaceutical companies making $3 million and radiation company in other companies, and why's it exposed Now we know it's been going on. We've been talking about on the radio for years, I've been telling you about the nature between industry and the big hospitals, chemo doctors and why they love to give all this chemo Now you could get us understanding. Of these doctors who are financially responsible for these pharmaceutical companies sit on the board, and then they go back to the hospital. And what do they do So seems like you wonder whether they do. Where's her loyalty is their loyalty to sitting on the board of the Big pharmaceutical companies were they make millions or is their job where they make millions? Or is it taking care of you as a patient where their loyalties and when you see all these patients getting chemo on came on came on. Came on chemo endlessly, even when it's not working. You kind of have an idea. Well, this doctor why was he exposed while he was exposed? Not because he was taking the money, not because he was on the board. Not because he was saying, Oh, drug acts is a good drug. When the company that was making drug X stop production of the drug has it wasn't working. How could a doctor promote a drug that wasn't working for a company where he sits on the board? Where is his loyalty? Where is it? And then you find out that the chief CEO of the super duper Big Hospital also sits on the board of a big drug company. Where the loyalties why can't a doctor work for The patient. And that's what we do at 30 for Broadway. That's what we're talking about. We're independent cancer treatment center. We work for one person. We work for you or your loved one or your neighbor and we're not getting kickbacks from the drug companies and sitting on the boards. No, there's no mixed loyalty here. It's all for the patient. You could read about it yourself. And now this week another expose the super duper Big Hospital has a vice president who oversees. Remember these hospitals are charity hospitals or non profit hospitals. Well, the super duper big hospital as a doctor that oversees this is quote from The New York Times Overseas Hospital Ventures with For profit companies, so they're pushing out. They want to have relationships with for profit companies have a vice president. A doctor was only responsible for this and this doctor. Who was working for the hospital to have relationships with these companies made last week, a million and a half dollars. In one of his deals he invested, he got stock options himself. While he was working for the hospital to establish relationships between the hospital and these pharmaceutical industries. Other places bar their employees from such deals in New York. The super duper big places they employ was making it a million and a half hours in one week, and they said the vice president overseas hospital ventures with for profit companies. As compensation for representing the hospital on the biotech boards. This doctor received stock options whose value Zord when the start starts up, went public a week ago. He's been involved with multiple startups. He signed a deal with his super duper big hospital. Stock options were worth $675,000. Other stock options were worth another $616,000. And he had other shares.

Mitch McConnell says there is 'zero chance' Trump is removed
"The impeachment trial which is expected if the house passes this impeachment of President Trump this next week senators serve as jurors and they take an oath to be impartial. That's important context for what you're about to see. The Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell Sean Hannity. Last night they everything I do during this. I'm coordinating with White House counsel. There will be no the difference between the president's position our position as to how to handle this. There's no chance the president's going to be removed from office. My my hope is that there won't be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment have essentially the jury foreman in this very serious constitutional process announcing he's going to have the defended dictate the trial. And thus obviously if you control the rules you may control. The verdict norm Ornstein a long time measured voice in Washington responding thus quote McConnell studying and outrageous admission that he's in the tank already for trump on the trial. Rose is a flat violation of the Ot will take his jer if a jury foreman and a murder trial was founded work closely. With the defense he would be prosecuted strong words McConnell though and this is important knows what he's doing in fact he's taken this very oath administered by the Chief Justice on the Senate floor to be impartial before so he has every reason to know that what he's saying today is a public announcement that guts or even violates the OT is about to take care. It was in the impeachment trial of Clinton. We'll all senators. Now stand and raise your right hand you will do impartial justice. According to the Constitution and laws so help you God the joining us now.

This is a a partisan process.

"According to the centers for disease control and prevention that includes ongoing outbreaks in New York and New Jersey which began in two thousand eighteen we're back with Dr Walter Ornstein. He's a professor and associate director of Emory vaccine center, Jordan, seeing the upper in New York was largely concentrated in the orthodox Hasidic Jewish communities. Can you talk a little bit about how cultural and religious factors can contribute to the spread of a virus? Like measles. I think what happens is people mistakenly look at their religion and say we shouldn't be getting back seen. There's really no religion that prepare bits back Saination, although you can get backs religious exemptions in forty seven hundred fifty states from these school laws, but the other big concern is people attributing problematic. Things toback scenes that the science doesn't support. For example. If ninety percent of children are vaccinated the ninety percent of the bad things that were going to happen. Anyway, we'll happen in backs and aged children just by coincidence. What you need is science to determine what is causally related coincidentally related, and where the science has shown, for example with autism. Is there is no causal relationship between the measles mumps, rubella, vaccine and autism and the benefits of the vaccines, far far outweigh the risks. Missiles is not a trivial disease. Temperatures are often one hundred and three hundred and five degrees Fahrenheit. Children are very very sick. And we have a way of preventing it, and we need to get that across, but aren't these vaccinations required? Like Howard people avoiding getting their children vaccinated. First of all the vaccines are generally required for entry to school. So you have a whole period prior to school where there is no law in actual fact, second is all laws have exemptions. All fifty states have laws with. Medical contra K in contraindications as an exemption. Forty seven states have laws with. Religious exemptions and a number have personal belief exemptions. And it's these exemptions. If they cluster could be fertile ground for spread of measles. If it's introduced before a vaccine was introduced in nineteen sixty three how common was it. The contract measles. Before vaccine was introduced virtually everybody got measles while you're an estimated roughly four million cases of measles. A year in the United States about five hundred deaths about forty eight thousand hospitalizations. It was not a trivial disease. And how effective is the vaccine. What are the chances that you can contract measles? Even if you are vaccinated vaccine is very effective on average after the first recommended dose about ninety three percent of people at protected and after the second dose more than ninety seven percent of our protected. So it is highly effective. But the other thing is it's not one hundred percent effective. We're protected when we have very high immunity levels because the other way we protect is by not letting people get exposed Dr Walter Ornstein is a professor and associate director at Emory vaccine center.

"Everyone. It's the takeaway Matt Katz filling in for Tenzin this week nineteen years ago. The United States declared measles had been eradicated. But in two thousand eighteen there were more than three hundred cases of the potentially lethal and incredibly contagious virus last week, Washington state declared a state of emergency with at least forty one confirmed cases, mostly in Clark county, thirty seven of those people had not been vaccinated right now. Our main objectives are to control the outbreak to identify cases as soon as we can identify exposure locations, and at those exposure locations as soon as possible identified people who are at risk for the disease who are basically unimmunized that's doctor Allen Melnik. He's the Clark county public health director here to talk with us about the recent outbreaks is Dr Walter Ornstein, Dr Ornstein is a professor at Emory University and the associate director of their vaccine center, Dr Ornstein thank you for. Joining us. Thank you. So let's start with what we're seeing in Washington state. What details do we know? Now about this particular outbreak. The big problem. We're seeing is clusters of children who have not investigated, according to recommendations and measles is so contagious measles. Unfortunately in most countries of the world when people bring it back. There is fertile ground for it to spread. Our these cases connected. Are they are they children and do they know each other or the part of the same community? Do we know anything? I don't know exactly about the outbreak in Washington. I can talk about it in general in general, people are in clusters of poorly vaccinated are are unvaccinated groups that allow susceptible to get infected and transmit to one. In another way, measles spreads is a person to person spread disease. You have an infectious person coming in contact with the susceptible person transmitting infection that person later become sick and transmits to another this chain of infection. That's the problem. And that's where back Saination is so important because when people are immune you break the chains of transmission on top of fighting a public health crisis. Doctor Allen who we heard from at the top these the Clark county public health director. He says he's also combating a swirl of misinformation spreading on Facebook and other social media platforms. Take a listen nonsense that the immunization causes autism nonsense at people with the vaccine shed of the virus and expose others. And that the vaccine causes measles. There's misinformation about the vaccine causing seizures people are calling us. So these questions that scene. During outbreaks of any kind how much of a factor is this type of fake discourse on social media. Well, it depends on the outbreak. But yes, it is a problem, and it has become more of a problem as social media gets to more people, and we have to overcome this non science and non factual basis concerns, and it is not easy since we need communications research as to how we can convince people what the real data are with the real information is not the false information the comprehensive. Studies have been done that have shown measles mumps rubella vaccine does not cause autism it caused some mild reactions, but they're nothing compared to diseases like measles like they prevent and the prevention far outweighs any risks from the vaccine's far far outweighs.

We don't talk about a lot on the show. But I think is really important. And I think it's a topic that a lot of developers first of all shy away from because money is such a weird thing for developers. It's a weird thing for everybody, especially culturally in the United States conversations about money or difficult for a variety of reasons. But it's also weird for developers because our pay can fluctuate by you know, even a hundred percent, I can I can easily see that and more than one hundred percent over the over a short course of a career five years or so you can imagine a developers pay doubling so knowing what to do with that. I think is is really important Felber's during kind of a unique position in that in that regard. Yeah, I have more financial thing. I have to mention before we leave the topic.
