Tropical Storm Isaias Brings "Enhanced" Tornado Risk And Possible Power Outages To New York City
"We begin with tropical Storm DCs added this way after making landfall overnight North Carolina as a hurricane. It's a tropical storm now, but still has ah lot of dangerous components to it.

Even though Overland, there's still enough components and the water close enough by so that it's holding its own, and it's around 70 mile per hour winds. Sustained for the storm. I think most of our area is going to see 30 to 50 miles per hour sustained winds for about a 4 to 6 hour period this afternoon with gusto over 70 and some of the strongest wind gusts and the potential for water spouts would be right along the coast line, moving inland, so spit up little small spin up, tornadoes could occur just about anywhere in the region.

Trump Again Assails Mail-In Voting
"So. We have a new phenomenon. It's called in it's called mail in voting. We you send your. Wall. Terms of of. The kind of millions and millions of ballots never. Because if the pandemic that bigger massively big. Send tens of millions of ballots to California all over the place to WHO's going to get them I have a friend lives in Westchester send applications that his son passed away beautiful wonderful son young man passed away seven years ago he called me said I just got I just got a ballot. Probably Robert Probably died seven years ago somebody got a ballot for a dog somebody gotta balance for something. You got millions of ballots going nobody even knows where they're going. You look at some of the corruption having to do with universal, mail in voting absentee voting is okay. You have to apply you have to go through a process you have to apply the mainly same good. And they're sending out applications. Delon means of ballots an. Applications you. No way you can go through a mail in vote without massive cheating. You know you could have a case where this election will be decided on the evening of November third absolute selection. Two months later, two months. What's wrong with the property mailing cow cited many months later you discussed by because lots of things will happen during that period of time especially when you have tight margins, lots of things can happen. Get the outward visible frustration of the president when you presented him with the facts about absentee voting, he's tried to make this distinction between absentee voting, which he has done himself mail in voting distinction without a difference most experts say, did you walk out of that room Jonathan with the feeling that if he loses the vote on election night or the couple of days after even once the mail in ballots are counted that he would accept the result. I think. You probably see a repetition of what we saw in two, thousand eighteen when in Florida, that's a race that I think people should go back and revisit the how you wanting to see what you think the president might do off the election. So there's a very plausible scenario in which the president is looking very strong on election night because he has convinced his supporters that voting by mail is unsafe he get a lodge in. Vote during pandemic. And some of these states, some of these key battleground states it takes awhile to count them. Pennsylvania's good example, and if you start seeing scenario in which in the days off the election, the in vote starts to come in and it stops to train more and more towards Joe Biden. By suspicion based on previous behavior is that president trump would call for a halt to voting and would try to litigate in in various states so that's where I think this is heading.

Do you believe that black lives matter? Wait a minute. First of all. Wait, wait, wait. Do you understand? The thie morons were producing in journalism schools. This is a white woman.

"Pennsylvania's health secretary. Calling out what she calls the transphobic harassment. She's experienced K Y. W's Andrew Kramer. Dr Rachel Levine says she's been hearing about multiple incidents of LGBTQ harassment on what she describes as transphobia. Directed at her lately. I have no room in my heart for hatred. And frankly, I do not have time for intolerance. She didn't get into the specifics of any one particular incident, but says an attack against her is an attack against Pennsylvania's entire LGBTQ community. Your actions perpetuate the spirit of intolerance and discrimination. Against LGBTQ, you individuals and specifically Transgender individuals. Governor Wolf recently acknowledged in a tweet that some Pennsylvanians quote, direct hate fuelled attacks. Dr Levin and that hate has no place in the Commonwealth. I would first like to sincerely think Governor will for his continued support, and for his comments, she says. She just wants to be able to focus on keeping everyone

"In the latest new look at battleground polls that shows Joe, Biden, gaining ground on president, trump or expanding his lead in several states, the new morning consult poll shows that Nationally Joe Biden leads president trump by eight points fifty one percent to forty three percent. And, here's a look at some of the key states. And all of them. Since May in Arizona Biden sits ahead of president. Trump I seven and nine point swing in Colorado by thirteen points, adding for points in Florida. He's up by three. Trump had been up by one in May in Georgia. Biden and trump remain statistically tied in Michigan Biden increases lead to ten points. This poll has Minnesota. Tightening another poll showed you late last week from that state had biden up. Up Double digits this morning, the morning console poll has North Carolina now tied wiping away. Trump's three point lead from May Ohio has tightened with trump's margin down to three points.

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Viruses dont discriminate, but health care often does
"Tech were reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, and some that might create even more inequality. A paper published in June. In the new, England Journal of Medicine, looked at how artificial intelligence is used to determine treatments and care. It found that many of the algorithms used in medicine use race as a variable. For example, many doctors use algorithms to estimate how well a patient's kidneys are functioning, because that's hard to test directly. Those algorithms use several factors including race to make these guesses Leo Eisenstein is a position and why you and Bellevue hospitals and one of the authors of the paper. We're seeing differences in outcomes not because. People who are black, have essentially different bodies, but their experience of being black in this country is essentially different, but encoded in the world of healthcare is the idea that black and brown bodies are different and as a result there's an excuse for why there are inequalities of health in the notion that these are produced naturally by racial differences Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who wrote a book about race in science and medicine, people will say black race predicts for some bad outcome when it's actually structural racism that's operating to put people in A. A vulnerable position where they are at risk Roberts talks about one study that examined why Black Women in Chicago started dying from breast cancer at a much higher rate than white women. Beginning in the nineteen ninety S, researchers concluded it was not because black women's health got worse. It was because there had been huge advances in breast, cancer, detection and treatment over those twenty years, and the best machines are located in private hospitals where more advantage people go Robert said that history makes her deeply worried about the distribution of life saving technology to treat or prevent covid nineteen. There are ways in which racism is built into the. He's rationing guidelines. which are based on a premise that scarce resources shouldn't be wasted on someone who might die at the hospital now because we live in a society that is structured by racism. This tool is systematically going to discriminate against black patients because they have already experienced a society that is set up in a way to produce lower life expectancy for them. Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. And now for some related links, there's more reading about systemic bias and medical treatment at our website marketplace. Tech Dot Org. The nonprofit science and Tech magazine dark has a long piece out this week. About how systemic bias is probably leading to disproportionately higher death rates among black and Brown people in the US, not just because of CO morbidity is associated with poverty or increased exposure to pollution say, but because researchers found that black and indigenous people in particular may also beginning turned away from hospitals or denied testing until it's too late. Yesterday we talked about vaccine innovations also Monday one of the leading. Vaccine Research Companies Madeira announced that it will start one of the biggest vaccine trial in the world, enrolling some thirty thousand people to test out its Kobe vaccine candidate. The maderno vaccine uses the method we talked about yesterday called M. R., n., A. The Viral Messenger that then uses the body's own cells to create antibodies to the fragment of viral particles. I'm Ali would and that's marketplace tech.

"Of Pandemic precautions thie ceremony marking the 19th anniversary of the 9 11 terror attack will not include one of the most poignant parts of previous memorials. The personal messages spoken by families of victims in a letter to family members of the National September 11th Memorial Museum, says recorded name readings will be used instead of having family members read the names in person. But relatives will be able to gather on the memorial plaza at the site for an event while having to maintain CDC guidelines during the pandemic. As always, there will be six moments of silence, acknowledging when each other world trade centers was struck and fell when the Pentagon was attacked, and when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a Pennsylvania field.

Regis Philbin Was an Entertainer In the Truest Sense
"Was talk. Regis Philbin. You know the connection. Our friend Frank Dawson. The loophole Sapporo have Valley Hall of Fame. The coach Lou hold too many others. This was a guy who was larger than life. And as I've been saying all day, and I said it before David Letterman, but I totally agree, he said he is a significance to television as Johnny Carson and this death is as big as the death. Of the Great late night. King of talk shows Johnny Carson as it is to the king of daytime television talk. The man that wrote the book. Regis Philbin, Teddy. Well, you know, we had the honor of having him come to mountaineer and perform at the harbor with Don Rickles and Regis was a heck of a singer and musician. A lot of people didn't really get to see that side of him that often. They saw the talk show entertainer, but he was an incredible entertainer musician. And then when you you matched him with Don Rickles that we had it who we had at Mountaineer three or four times, actually. But, uh, it was just an incredible show, and I got to have dinner with both of them after the show, sitting in LabOne be a great restaurant at Mountaineer. And it was just a thrill. I mean, it was. They brought me back through the Johnny Carson through Frank Sinatra and all of the relations that they had going back throughout the history of really Entertainment in America as we know it today, Post World War two and it was just fascinating. The 88 years old but was probably in great shape. I haven't really seen much of them in the last year, but He loved to work out. He was really just as nice. A man and a person sitting and having dinner just as he was, as you saw on TV, so I have nothing but great things to say about him. And and when you match him with Don Rickles It was just out of control. I mean, they were so funny and great together, you know, and how loyal he was to his friends. Digger has so much meaning our friend Frank Dawson. To promote this region and I alluded to on social media yesterday, did it again today and on the radio First thing this morning, Frank Dawson did amazing things he would actually get introduced in the audience tonight during that television show when it was live being seen locally on Channel four across the country through the Great brand, that is Disney. They formed a partnership of bond there, he would actually come to speak in East Liverpool. He was on the steps of the Carnegie Library downtown across from the alumni building in East Liverpool. And he loved Dean Martin. Obviously, he worked with Joey Bishop for a while, he took. Who wants to be a millionaire into the biggest thing? Maybe since gaming has been permitted in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. I mean, people loved it. It was like a wagering on your favorite team. People gravitated to it. Millions of viewers. It ran them more than one night in prime time and anything that it went up against it beat. This guy was a communicator. But as I mentioned today, Teddy, he could talk just about any subject, and he was also when he had to be a great serious interviewer to so Regis Philbin may have seemed like the kid next door, but he really was a heavyweight in this business. Absolutely. Buddy was like the kid next door. He was like your next door neighbor and you sat down with him and just like people got the CM on Regis and Kathie Lee, how he was able to just talk with anybody about anything sports. He knew everything about sports. Entertainment. He knew everything about entertainment. You get into a Wall Street, you know about Wall Street in things that were going he was, and actually an aficionado of of the market. So It was just it was just fun to be with him. Hey, how
New York Liberty, Seattle Storm players walk off court during national anthem
"Sisters are in the news, the New York Liberty players left the court during the national anthem as it was play The New York Liberty and The Seattle Storm walked off the court as part of the Social Justice initiative. Now I don't know in tbe body is my grandmother would say who covers the NBA quite like Charles Holland from the Minnesota spokesman recorder, So I had to bring him on the show. Let us show to find out What happened was this plan is everybody upset is everybody's supporting what what is going on here? All right now. Thank you for having me on your show right now. It wasn't surprised. No, we had a phone conference with With the commissioner with this week and I'm not. I asked a question about you know what? What are they going to do? In terms of really honor? You know, beyond a tailor shop when the jersey on their back and those talk thanks. She just wouldn't report everything the player is going to do so. As of now, there's been no backlash effect on Twitter following my people that's on Twitter. Everybody on the floor. I think somebody lives of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in DC up 90 pride. No, he wasn't watching if he was playing golf. Oh, we breath off. Come on. You know, I saw the pictures on Selena, you know, But you know that offer show the dope every day has been in the forefront ofthe Social justice law before Colin Chapman that Neil Long before it became fashionable as we're still doing. This is to show the numbers that they are going to take the leadership role. And it happily that these are sisters who take the leadership role and make the NBA now because they start next week. What they going to do what they're gonna Cometa? Because you know you don't show it up. OK, so I've been on Commodus and do something different because they don't and I. Luckily, I'm gonna be on another talk conference called this week with the MBA. I'm asked that question days in the women's I wouldn't do that. But the MBA got a different situation, but they got a law. They have to be outer or not out there doing a national talent. They cannot leave doing that. Doing the national anthem, So it will be interesting to see what it is. They're gonna wave that rule or they're going to do a stump of spontaneous to what the ladies did today. And how the NBA's gonna respond to that. So I was being stupid. I had the phone. I thought that was, you know, I mean, this is bigger than basketball players. They said that all along with the health issue that something's going on the floor that they always said that Again those eight minutes almost nine minutes. Took the world Okay, you are. You can speak. You know You're the journalist or you are a player or you are anybody If you want touched by that and recognise that could have been you. You see that? That brings a whole different perspective. And so therefore I think the ladies is showing that they can do more than just Chucho.

"pennsylvania" Discussed on Far Side Chats
"Located in Columbia County Pennsylvania. Centralia story began in eighteen. Forty one as coal boomtown community called Bull's head full said was later incorporated as a borough of Centralia and eighteen sixty six by the local coal companies who mind the rich anthracite coal from the area surrounding the small town for the town of Centralia. These rich deposits of anthracite coal proof to be kind of a double edged sword because in one thousand nine hundred sixty to a trash fire in strip mine beneath Centralia. Pennsylvania started burning. The fire has actually been going ever cents causing strange dangerous occurrences in the ground beneath the city. Coal seam fires aren't really anything unusual. I mean they really happen all over the world and our many others in the state of Pennsylvania alone however this fire is still burning under the town and it's been burning for decades before residents really understood what was going on or realized it was dangerous when a twelve year. Old Centralia Resident Todd. Dombrowski fell into a sinkhole that opened up in his backyard and nearly died. Concern finally kicked in and the townsfolk decided. It was getting to be a serious problem. I Guess Oh oh my Gosh I mean think you know. There's a fire under the city. We should leave. Yeah that's by first clue. I mean that's what I think but you know maybe not I guess not so the steam puffing out of the sink holes all over town has toxic levels of carbon monoxide and the ground temperature was up two hundred eighty degrees in some locations. By nineteen eighty-three the government allocated forty two million two relocating residents to safer locations. Most people gladly moved away at this point but a few folks remained. The government fought them in a victim of many from their homes and by October of two thousand thirteen. Only ten people remained in the small town. They settled lawsuits against the government are permitted to remain in the town until they chose to leave. Or you know pass on. But that doesn't mean the environment any safer or less intriguing than it was when the addictions occurred as people from near and far learn the story of Centralia. They come to visit because why not most are pretty Ostra by what they see a grid work of streets without names or without homes remnants of property such as steps to a front door that are no longer there. A few abandoned buildings scattered here and there surrounded by smoldering hillsides in devastated wastelands three cemeteries remaining on the grounds of church. That was torn down years ago. Only a very few occupied homes still remain while no lives have been lost that can be directly attributed to the mine fire what has been lost as the sole of community with any strange or unusual occurrence comes rumors and stories. Centralia is no different in that respect. Walking around the ruins of this modern day. Ghost town gives one the feeling of supernatural forces working underfoot for visitors to the town. Stories arose from these ashes. Some were stories from visitors. Who Left in fear? After thinking they saw a person or thing heard odd sounds and some felt they were being watched others go as far as to say Centralia is the gateway to hell which I imagine is like on. Buffy where she lives in. I think the town is Sonny jail and I think that they call the center of it. The hell mouth but I honestly did not research this. So don't quote me on that but I've never seen the show. So Liz my nerd level. Try but really high up there. I mean it's true. Anyways as you can tell imaginations can run wild as in trail lia becomes a modern day ghost town in the fire encroaches upon the graveyard of the abandoned town. Rumors have circulated that Centralia is haunted. Now sort of recently. The Movie Silent Hill has actually field some rumors. I don't know if you've seen silent hill. Liz Time I you know. I've not seen not my bread and butter kind of movie you for those at home. Who are like me have not seen it. It is a movie by Sony Pictures. That is a story about a small town in West Virginia called Silent Hill. And you know. I know crazy. So when researching the different elements of Silent Hill the screenwriter Roger. Avery actually came across the town of Centralia Pennsylvania Cintra Lia actually planted the seed for what developed into the cinematic version of the town of Silent Hill. The movie invites the audience to explore. Their fears of the unknown yet. Silent Hill is a horror film and a work of fiction. So you know it's sort of based off Centralia but not directly like there's your aren't there like cannibals since silent hill or something. I really don't remember it's been born enough. I don't think game like a video game now is it. I don't know I think so. I had no idea just goes to show how much I don't know about Louis. Well same I stayed away from it when it came..

while back and you had a big foot experience here Pennsylvania actually have a few that you'd like to talk about and I'm always up to here hiring people stories about bigfoot Pennsylvania since in Pennsylvania as well and actually you're not too far from me so but we'll keep my my exact location between you and I so we won't we votes out the whole world but if you could just kind of walk into your first experience I know it happened a while ago and stuff but it's very interesting it was a while ago but I you know I remember it like it was yesterday this was back in two thousand two and happened in lycoming county Pennsylvania on the West branch of the Susquehanna River I was going on a little like over a couple of you know like a weekend camping trip with a friend and while there he was going to teach me how to flint nap make arrowhead it's you know democracy and we and while there we would walk the fields at the bottom of the mountain the they were freshly ploughed fields we look through those fields round heads I collect Indian artifacts so that was the whole reason to go there I was I was about to deploy with my National Guard unit and he thought I needed some time off before we went to just have some fun stop worrying about being deployed and getting all your finances in order and all that things to go along with that so you know that's that's was the whole plan of going there I wasn't not a a big foot believe or at the time nine or one of the researcher people or anything like that had nothing to do with bigfoot I'm a hunter and and I liked be in the outdoors ally and I've never ever even thought about it before this happened so anyway the the first day was very relaxed and we had a lesson in and then it was great up until the moment when I put inch long sliver of Obsidian into the palm of my hand cut myself pretty severely so that was the end of the lesson for the day they I should have had stitches but he put a butterfly on it and we you know decided that we'd walk these fields look for some artifacts it was early summer late spring somewhere where the corn was maybe knee high and one field and maybe you know two three inches and the other field that we were looking at so you know we walked the field and I found a couple of broken arrowheads nothing special and I was getting really bored so I had looked at the top of graphical map and I've seen that there was a creek coming into the river just down from this camp site a little bit and I thought you know woke up that creek I'm really good at finding along creek beds I you know I've found hundreds arrowheads outweigh so he he agreed go up you never did that before and he was he was just starting to collect arrowheads at the time but he was really good at making them it really good you know he gets two hundred dollars a lesson for this to teach people how to do this so it was interesting and he was interested in the real artifacts so we kind of hit it off and up this valley we go in search these artifacts now not exactly sure how far we were up the valley Ali from looking at the top of graphical map I think he got he got tired maybe maybe a little less than a mile up the creek he got tired it was really hot that day was probably like ninety degrees and I had my canteen award US and he probably didn't have anything I'm not sure if he did or not but I know he was getting dehydrated and he had enough we weren't finding anything I mean not a up to not flake nothing and usually you can you know you can you can find artifacts on any creek in Pennsylvania because the Indians you know used every good source of water you know that's that was where they camp close to them in their hunting camps villages were down the bottom suits we weren't finding anything he got tired of that and he he said I wanna go back to the camp and make something to eat and Blah Blah Blah so I said all right I'm I'm pretty determined to find something I said I want to get to the head of this creek 'cause I know within fifty meters of every creek you know where the spring is where I comes out of the ground there's always an artifact camp there there's always an Indian camp there or you can always find artifacts almost every spring and Pennsylvania so I was determined to find the head and I wasn't sure where it was 'cause you know WANNA topple map it's not always accurate where the blue line starts and stops you know some a lot of times what it shows you on the map the springs actually the head is actually a little further than what the Blue Line is so I'm going up the valley and it just started getting so thick he turned back and I was alone and it just started getting sick or Acre and sicker with Rhododendron it eventually became like a prison where I was stepping over through under over trying to get through this stuff trying to stay on the creek bed became impossible and I got to you know and I was hearing things at the time but I just you know I just thought you know wrote it off says dear dear kicking up every now and then this is a good thicket I might see a bear and here you know anything but it didn't really bother me because like hunted bear on deer and I've seen them you know up close you know there was never never really any concern you know the they don't want you they run away and you know there's no really reason to be afraid in the woods normally so I'm driving on like I always do you know push it on the creek looking at every sandbar trying to find an airhead couldn't find anything and eventually I started you know like I said it was getting so thick I was just become a struggle and this led the last sandbar I checked had crushed aluminum can on it I don't know if there's a beer can or can't really remember anymore but I thought Oh Jeez this creek must go all the way up to the highway and go underneath it to have picked up that beer can consist was a pretty pristine area. It's pretty remote so I'm thinking and I can here a highway way off in the distance it sounded like it was maybe two miles away but you can hear tractor-trailers pretty far when you're in the mountains so I'm not prepared to go that far only have maybe half a Cantina water left and and maybe one little snack in my in my little day pack so I'm going to get out of this mess that I mean I'm climbing through and struggling to get through this Rhododendron it's just a tangled mess horrible so I I remember seeing on the the topographical map that there was a a logging road to my left up out of the up out of the creek area up at work levels off a little and that's what I was GonNa do I was going to make my left turn out of there just go up hill until I got out of the sick and to that logging you're GonNa go back down the mountain and go home well I got up out of the the creek area and on the logging path and and right there there was a a little area where you could see when they blasted.

"All right. Give us the update here. Yeah. We I covered this case back in episodes, one forty six and one forty eight involving a state case captioned league of women voters versus Pennsylvania. And so this involves the Republican twenty eleven redistricting plan, which was challenged in the Pennsylvania supreme court under Pennsylvania's constitution. Thus circumventing the issues that we talked about in the last segment of you know, alternately putting a highly political issue before what is likely to be a partisan supreme court. And and so so let's talk about that a little bit Pennsylvania is a parody Matic example of packing and cracking. Right. We have a blue state that. It is a swing state and since twenty eleven there have been three congressional elections Pennsylvania has eighteen congressional districts. And so, you know, blue state slightly democratic maybe fifty to forty eight right? How do you think Pennsylvania's eighteen districts were have gone in the past three elections? Well, going with your math. I'm Jay, I'm I'm gonna just I've I'll say nine and nine because it's a swing state, and I'm guessing. Yeah. The representation will be roughly what the public is voting so nine and nine. Yeah. Yeah. Thirteen to five Republican and that other two five result. That thirteen to five result persisted from twenty twelve right, which was a pretty blue year. Right. That was the Barack Obama's reelection in which he carried Pennsylvania by nearly double digits in twenty fourteen despite the fact that the democratic share of the vote dropped off by six percent still thirteen to five Republican and then again in twenty sixteen when Donald Trump carried Pennsylvania still thirteen to five Republican. Well, I'm no math democratic sounds to me like something is wrong. Yeah. And and what's wrong is that the Republican plan tax all of the democratic voters into those five districts such that the Democrats have won those five districts by an average by an average vote share of overset. Seventy five percent and twenty twelve and twenty sixteenth. Yeah. So if you're thinking about, you know, how do you make sure that democratic votes are wasted? Yeah. You you put all the Democrats into these districts where Democrats are going to win no matter what? And you're just piling on huge margins thus enabling Republicans to win the remainder the rest of the state with under sixty percent of the vote. So this is the classic red map formula, and in and in fact, red map was used in Pennsylvania and so- league of women voters common cause a bunch of plaintiffs sued to invalidate they entire math. And interestingly again, as we as we flagged from the beginning of the second, they sued under article one section five of the Pennsylvania state constitution, which says elections shall be free. And equal. No power civil or military shell at anytime interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage. So that sidesteps, right. We've talked about it is pending before the supreme court does partisan gerrymandering violate the due process and equal protection clauses of the US constitution, Pennsylvania has its own constitutional provision that are on. Sorry. Remember because there's there's so much bad Republican gerrymandering everywhere. This was that one weird trick that was the kind of positive news on how they were going to keep it at the state level. That was the state. That's exactly right and good and the state supreme court. Yeah. So not only did the state supreme court rule that this twenty eleven plan that partisan gerrymandering, violates that provision of the Pennsylvania state constitution. But ultimately after remand ING and trying to get the Republican legislature to redraw the map in a way that was fair and the Republican legislature making, you know, tiny little marginal changes, ultimately, the Pennsylvania state supreme court redrew, the district's themselves they hired an outside expert. I mean, they, you know, the judges didn't sit down and do it. But the court commissioned an independent expert to redraw the districts to make them more fair..

"If each date you know that govern game exactly and the actual process itself. So the two thousand and ten election was used not just in terms of the bringing the tea party to power, the ideological conservatism, that it represents go headlines. Yeah, just to piggyback on that. Just one thing that I think we saw with Pennsylvania's, you know, you know, one of the most agree GIS gerrymandered maps in the country. We see one party control, right? We see that the Republicans controlled the house, the Senate, the governor's office, and you know, they made the laws. They made the rules and there was no really check combined. Democrats would do. That's being nonpartisan ab- now you're not being partisan, but the Democrats have done that. So already pointed out, there's a district in Maryland. Yeah. So this is not partisan both parties. We'll do this. Well, that's exactly the point I wanted to go to because if regardless of party, if the party has the power, it seems very natural. In terms of American politics try to consolidate that power, but but you know, when Republicans do it and there have they have done here in Pennsylvania. Democrats have done it elsewhere. People keep talking to me about Maryland, California, back in the eighties and nineties. But the point is, is that is there a way to come up with a fair system that does mostly remove politics from the equation? And and here let me just let me just do some limit. Let me play for you a little bit of tape here. This is again Valentino degeorge. Oh, he's the GOP chairman of Pennsylvania, and he basically just takes. He takes issue with that entire question because he says it's perfectly fine. With legislators, creating districts, and he really opposes the idea of any other systems, specifically, an independent citizens commission, which we'll talk about here in a second. He poses other systems to draw future congressional maps, and here's what he said. So legislators are in the best position to draw lines and look the end of the day, heaven forbid, politics should enter into a piece of legislation that draws part, you know, political maps stunned over the country. Democrats join maps to their favors in other states, look Marilyn. So you know, this is nonsense. This was part of a Barack Obama, Eric Holder, fair districting plan. They called it to take back congressional seats and they've done it here in Pennsylvania. That's fell to Georgia, Pennsylvania GOP chair. So Lindsey, Lazar ski. He's he basically says, we know the state the best we should draw the maps. But there is this other idea about an independence, it isn't commission. What would that look like in Pennsylvania? I just have to say, I love that operatic music behind veils. And it was. It was a Columbus Day festival in Philadelphia. Taking me there to south Philly. So you know a group in Pennsylvania, fair district's PA for a number of years now they've been trying to. Change the Pennsylvania constitution and to implement an independent citizens commission that would actually draw the lines and they've modeled this after California, and this is really a grassroots organization. You see them at street fairs. You see them at avent's canvassing and you know they, they're asking the legislators to basically vote against their interests to form this commission. As you pointed out it, there is a such a commission in California made up of appointed independent citizens. And I think some several other couple other states in the west have similar similar commission. So do they work though? Have they created fairer districts if you talk to the people on the commission? Yes. If you talked to voters. Yes. I think a key difference between Pennsylvania and California is that in Pennsylvania, there's no referendum. So basically to get that process in place, the state legislature would have to. Pass a constitutional amendment, and then it would go to the voters in a referendum, and there's no guarantee. There's no guarantee that an independent commission itself would be truly independent. By somebody that that that's or hold positions by virtue get on get on the commission by virtue of a position they already hold or you could have state lawmaker leaders appoint a few. You could have different groups. Yeah, it it can get. It can get complicated, but here's what's fascinating until Baker versus car supreme court decision..

"From WB you are Boston NPR I'm Meghna Chuck Roberti and this is on point. We've got a special broadcast today from the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia, and we're in Pennsylvania because yes, the keystone state is key to American politics. It's a microcosm of the country as a whole populous with a mix of urban and rural voters. The electorate here is pretty evenly split between Republicans and Democrats. You'll remember that President Trump won Pennsylvania by less than forty. Five thousand votes out of the six million ballots cast here in two thousand sixteen, so it would make sense to expect that same even split in the state's congressional delegation, half democrat half Republican, but that is not the case. The GOP holds thirteen out of Pennsylvania's eighteen congressional seats in part because Pennsylvania had one of the most extremely gerrymandered congressional maps in the country will that change this year. The state supreme court struck down the old district map and. Suddenly more than a half dozen of Pennsylvania's congressional races are newly competitive, and that could mean major change in the midterm elections. So this hour on point Pennsylvania's adventures in redistricting and the impact it could have on American politics. Now we've been spending several days here in Pennsylvania, getting a sense of the districts old and new. So I wanna start today in the states old. Seventh district in a parking lot in king of Prussia, Pennsylvania. So this district was known as goofy, kicking Donald, a strange name, but that's what the extremely gerrymandered shape of the old. Seventh district looked like a Disney brawl. We're standing outside creeds, seafood and steaks squeezed between the Pennsylvania turnpike and county line expressway. And we're here with Kate. Doyle Montgomery County lead for fair districts, Pennsylvania, a nonpartisan group that's pushing for permanent change in the state's districting rules. This parking lot is little infamous when it comes to the previous seventh district, Pennsylvania, it is connecting point. It is approximately one hundred and seventy meters long or about five hundred fifty feet. The old seventh spread along contorted twists and turns for some fifty miles from the Pennsylvania suburbs to Amish country. But this pinch point you sane bolt could cross the seventh district in about sixteen seconds, correct? So it's it's really just as wide as a parking lot. I mean, why did they do that? It has to be contiguous. In other words, no matter how strange the shape the district has to be a single unit that has been a long standing rule in Pennsylvania, says, fair districts, rich Rafferty, who's also with us Rafferty and dole both emphasized that gerrymandering has been practiced beloved by both parties, but the huge difference. Now, the availability of voter records and vast amounts of consumer information. Rafferty says the combination of big data and sophisticated mapping technology allows district lines to zigzag from house to house making certain seats so safe. The opposition simply falls.
