"Radio dot com. This is Bloomberg. How long with Joe Matthew? There will be no rail strike. The Senate passed that Bill today, but the paid sick time will have to wait apparently Bloomberg government's Emily Wilkins up next with what happened today on Capitol Hill. What it means for the rail workers in our economy first, we turn to Wall Street, and the latest now from Charlie pie, thank you very much. Here's what's going on. Stocks ended the day mixed Joe Matthew with the Dow, the S&P both are a little changed on the S&P after yesterday's surge. We had the nesta car by 14 points up by about one tenth of 1%. Bottom line here, a lot of instability near a key technical level, traders awaiting the all important jobs report tomorrow morning for clues on the fed's next bottle sea steps. S&P down three down one tenth of 1% the Dow down 194 down 6 tenths of 1%. Ten year yield 3.54% of two year 4.27% spot gold now at 1803 the ounce while West Texas enemy crew today up 8 tenths of 1% 81 22 a barrel.

Half earnings marvel technology down 7.2% on social site parlor and Ye formerly known as Kanye West of terminated their acquisition agreement. I'm Charlie Politico Matthew was a Bloomberg business flash. I think a bill to avert a rail strike by essentially forcing workers to accept the labor deal already on the table past the Senate easily today. The second bill, though, that we talked about yesterday to give workers 7 days paid sick leave up from one, no. On this vote, the yeas are 52, the nays are 43 under the previous order requiring 60 votes for the adoption. For the adoption of this concurrent resolution, the concurrent resolution is not agreed to. And so it goes. Senator Bernie Sanders among those outrage.

Fresh update on "politico" discussed on POLITICO Playbook Audio Briefing

"Presented by Kroger and Albertsons companies. Hey, good morning, playbook. I'm ragout of Allen, it's Thursday. Today's show, an update on how stem leadership. It's your Politico playbook daily briefing. Since election day, the drama in the house had been concentrated on the GOP side. As Kevin McCarthy tries to overcome a maga world mutiny to get the speaker's gavel. And Democrats smoothly elect three new leaders to succeed means he Pelosi, steny Hoyer, and Jim Clyburn. But it turns out things aren't all kumbaya and the house stemmed caucus. Amid some Democrats discontentment about Clyburn's insistence on staying in leadership, representative David cicilline has decided to challenge him for the assistant leader job. That's about that'll happen later today, and then there's an intense whisper campaign happening behind the scenes about a bid from representative Tony cardinals to head the DCCC. One that compiles ugly past allegations about sexual assault, as well as new alleged connections to a main known as the boogeyman of porn. First let's start with Clyburn. Most Democrats expected him to gracefully step aside with Pelosi and Hoyer. And his insistence on remaining in leadership, Bigfoot had Colorado representative Joe abuse, forcing the young up and coming black Democrat to abandon his own bid for caucus chair. Time political correspondent Molly ball tweeted Wednesday. When I interviewed Pelosi Hoyer and Clyburn for my book, Clyburn was the only one to predict that all three of them would leave at once. Now, he's the only one trying to stay in leadership. For his part, Sicily, who was gay, has told colleagues his candidacy is less about Clyburn, but his desire to see someone from the LGBTQ community have a voice in democratic leadership. Sicily wrote in a dear colleague letter. It is critical that the House democratic leadership team fully reflect the diversity of our caucus and the American people. He also explained that a sense of duty compelled him to run. Even so, cicilline's bid is a long shot. Clyburn is a senior member of the powerful congressional black caucus, which boasts about 60 members who often band together to throw their weight around within the party. That way, plus his cachet as a kingmaker in Joe Biden's 2020 campaign will make him very difficult to dislodge. And has led to some Democrats to speculate that cicilline might pull out before the election. And then there's the DCCC drama. There's an interesting backstory to the caucus decision Wednesday to let minority leader elect Hakeem Jeffries choose the new chair of the DCC, rather than having the caucus elect the position. We're told from several senior Democrats that while the idea to make it an appointed post has been floating around for a while, many lawmakers looked at the two main contenders openly seeking the post card than us in California representative on ibera and effectively said, no thanks. Shortly after election day, our colleague Nicholas, we report it, the cardamom who ran bold pack, the congressional Hispanic caucus political arm, had locked down a substantial amount of support for the DCCC job. But in the week since, headlines from his past have circulated among den lawmakers and operatives, including an allegation from a woman who claimed that cardi nu molested her when she was a teenager. That's an accusation he denies, and which was the subject of a lawsuit that was later dropped. And then there's his association with Mark kandel. The so called boogeyman of porn last week, William Bretman from The Daily Beast reported that handel, a politically connected real estate developer who raised money for carton us and acted as what Bretman writes, liaison to the larger Los Angeles real estate community, also moonlighted as a director of violent pornography, and has been accused of repeatedly physically abusing women, and dollars under federal indictment for alleged financial misdeeds. There's a connection between the allegations back in 2018, the LA times reported citing court records that the woman who accused card than us of sexual assault said the congressman had secured a place for a family to live rent free, and that handel covered the expense, worth noting the carton as denies that as well. Meanwhile, a trailer to a documentary about the cardinal's allegations has been circulating. In a statement a playbook he denies the accusations. Nothing is new, and frankly, everything has been publicly resolved, refuted, or dropped. Footers are focused on kitchen table issues that unfounded claims and distorted information by amateur operatives desperate for committee contacts. Regardless of where did the allegations are true, some Democrats fretted that if cardinals were to have the DCC, Republicans would latch onto any accusation against Cardinals and use it to climb the whole party come 2024. Here's a question who's behind the resurfacing of these old allegations. Allies of cardinals suspect it's coming from DCCC hopeful bera, worth noting that Travis horn, a spokesman for bearer's office, said they had nothing to do with this. For his part bearer also has associations with scandal. His father spent time in prison for funneling, at least $260,000 in the legal contribution straw donations to Paris 2010 and 2012 congressional campaigns. The barrow was cleared of any propriety that too is giving Democrats heartburn. Said when democratic aid, if someone had emerged as a consensus candidate for the D.C. post, this rules change probably wouldn't have passed. If you're going to put your name forward for a position like this, you have to expect that any whisper of a scandal will be a problem. Here's what's up in Washington today starting with The White House and 9 am eastern, the bidens will have the official arrival ceremony of the macarons on the south lawn with vice president Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff also attending. Afterward, by the name Macron will have a bilateral meeting in the Oval Office and will hold a joint press conference in the east room. The Senate is in today. CFTC chair roston benham will testify before the agriculture committee at 10 a.m. on the FTX collapse. The house will be the noon to take up a variety of bills with the first and last votes predicted between two 30 and four 30 p.m.. Pelosi will hold her weekly press conference at ten 45 a.m.. All right, for more news on what's breaking.

The Democrats' Day of Reckoning Is Near

"Battle for Senate control marked by volatility as midterms near. And Politico, young voters missing in action at dam based flocks to vote early. These are two perfect examples of what do I write when the Democrats are getting slaughtered? When they're being mowed down when their troops have broken and run away when they can't get volunteers to turn out and the blue website isn't generating a dollar. What are we right about when it's a route? What are we right about when Don bulldog takes it to Maggie Hassan in the debate yesterday? What are we right about when Mike dewine in Ohio is a 22 point lead when the insider advantage as a Republicans on a generic ballot uptick of plus four? Because you got to understand every single morning and I sent a note to a candidate this morning. Their team had canceled an interview today and I said last night, that's fine, don't worry, but are you sure? And are you that confident? And texted me overnight. I was asleep. Twice, trying to cut, you know. I don't care if people don't want to come around. If they got a lead, you didn't send a lead. But I really don't care, but I set it out back. You know, my day ends early. And it starts early. So I could ever have 4 a.m. and I start running through all this stuff and this morning. It is hilarious because it's always the same thing. Collective hedging over by legacy media. Towards that, we're picking up a GOP trend. Storyline column analysis. Right now, it's a route.

Politico: Florida Republicans, Trump Defy DeSantis

"Is reporting there is some bad blood brewing between desantis and Trump and its over a rally that president Trump is holding for senator Marco Rubio. This is going to be held in Florida and apparently no one in the desantis team was told about this. Nobody said that nobody told the governor gave the governor's team a heads up that Trump is going to be going to Miami just two days before the midterms and keep in mind desantis is in a pretty significant battle for his job as governor going up against Charlie Crist. Now I think the governor is going to be able to pull out a big win here. But you just don't know. And so you would think that the Trump team would have invited governor desantis to come and be a part of the rally. The governor's name was not on any of the announcements. And apparently the governor is not going to be attending the rally with president Trump and senator Marco Rubio. Reading from the political article here, the apparent snub angered some within desantis orbit who complained that Florida governors team was not informed of the rally prior to Trump announcing it. The timing of the Trump and Rubio event means any campaign event desantis holds that day will not get as much attention during the final stretch of the 2022 midterms. Quote, you've got the Sunday before election day totally hijacked by Trump parachuting in on Trump force one. Taking up the whole day, a longtime Republican consultant who is close to the governor said.

'House Democrats Retrench as GOP Money Floods the Map'

"I want to go through this story here. House Democrats retrench as GOP money floods the map. Hey Nancy Pelosi is in complete and total panic right now and she should be. She is on defense and they are running out of time. They're running out of time in many different ways because we are 25 days out and Nancy Pelosi is starting to do what any sort of losing general in a war has to do retreat and protect the assets you can't lose. Politico dot com House Democrats retrench as GOP money floods the map. The party isn't airing ads in 6 of the 14 GOP districts. Joe Biden carried in 2020 as it directs money to help incumbents under threat. And it goes through and talks about some of these races. Meanwhile, House Republican super PAC crosses $200 million in midterm spending. I feel a lot better about the house than I do about the Senate. The Senate I'm feeling better and better about, but the house is looking great. And these house races are one step forward, two step back. It's very much trench warfare. And we are now starting to see the entire map expand when it comes to these House races. And the DCCC is pulling out of critical races in Arizona. In Georgia, in Texas, they don't have the money.

James Rosen: Sources Report Similar Scenes of Disorientation by Biden

"What to do in the First Lady and this is not the first time that's happened, he always just looks confused when he's up on that stage. Any idea what's going on there? Look, I've spoken with sources inside the administration who report similar scenes of disorientation on the part of the president in various settings. And some of these have been visible to the public. I think there's been two different occasions where the president has sought to shake hands with people who are not standing there. And The White House, we should point out, always responds to any inquiries along these lines. And to my knowledge, I am the only reporter who has put such an inquiry directly to President Biden himself back in January. His aides always respond to increase along these lines by saying that the president is fully robust and engaged and that there is no issue. With his cognitive faculties, but scenes like yesterday's are not good optics for the president. In terms of reassuring Americans about that issue. And to the extent that Americans are concerned about it is manifest in the poll that I asked the president about back in January of this year, which ran in Politico, it was a Politico morning consult poll that found 49% of American voters disagreeing with the statement Joe Biden is mentally fit. The same poll found not even a majority of Democrats willing strongly to affirm that statement. And so when events like these occur, I think they add to that perception that was reflected in that polling data. And when The White House crafts responses that are distinctly unsatisfactory to any sentient listener, I think they inadvertently wind up stoking that perception.

Did Dinesh Help Kill Reaganism Before Trump Did?

"There's a very interesting article in Politico called Trump didn't kill reaganism these guys did. And I start reading the article and I'm who are these guys who supposedly killed reaganism before Trump. It turns out that it's Rush Limbaugh and Pat Buchanan and Newt Gingrich and well me. We are apparently the notorious gang that killed off reaganism even before Trump. The article is an interview with a professor, a woman named Nicole hammer. Nicole hammer is a an academic who studies the right, the conservative side of the aisle. The Republicans. And she has an upcoming book called partisans, the conservative revolutionaries who remade American politics in the 1990s. I met evidently one of these. And I told W I go, let's see if we can get nickel hammer to come on the podcast. It'd be fun to actually talk directly about these things because she's writing about a period that I of course remember well and was part of. Now, nickel hammer's theory in the book. And I'm only gleaning it from her interview, but it's a pretty in depth interview with political. Is that it's wrong to think of Trump as having created a new Republican Party. What she's really arguing is that the new Republican Party created Trump. There was a new Republican Party that was forged in the late 1990s and the early 2000s, and that's the movement that brought Trump to the forefront. So Trump articulated the views of this new movement, but the new movement was created by people like former House speaker gingrich and Buchanan.

The judge appeared to approve all of the deletions, the Justice Department proposed, some of which are intended to shield investigator sources, and methods for collecting evidence as part of their criminal probe into the highly classified documents the FBI discovered at Mar-a-Lago. That's noon eastern today. All right, fed chair Jerome Powell makes his anticipated return to Jackson hole today to speak in front of the Central Bank's annual symposium. Politicos, economic policy reported Victoria guida, got the truly brutal assignment to go to Jackson hole and is here to talk about it. Victoria, how's it going, how are you? I'm doing great. The weather here is gorgeous. The view here is gorgeous. I can't complain. Listeners might remember last year, pal's speech was particularly memorable because he said that inflation would be temporary. That simply wasn't the case, it was high, it still high. It seems like this time around is a bit of a credibility mission for pal. Yeah, as you said, it's sort of a complete opposite message this year compared to last year because last year, the fed was still hoping that some of these supply chain issues were really the main cause of inflation in that it would go away as those things resolve themselves. Now we still have supply chain issues. People are also spending a lot of money on all sorts of things. And so inflation has broadened out across sectors and now the fed is trying to battle that inflation with interest rate hikes. They're hoping that that will help bring inflation down slowly. However, it still high. It's going to take a while and that is partially what we expect to hear from Powell today is basically that the fight to kill inflation is far from over. I just want to make sure. So basically it seems like last year inflation bad inflation will go away. This year, Jerome Powell, inflation bad, this time I'm doing everything I can to take care of it.

Poll: Trump's Popularity Increased Following Mar-A-Lago Raid

"There was a morning consult Politico poll that came out, his favorability has increased since the FBI raid of his Mar-a-Lago estate last week. Now, that right now, 58% of Republican voters would support former president Trump if the 2024 Republican presidential primary were held today. That's the highest on record since he lost in 2020. 58%. In June, it was 53%. In July, it was 54% and now after the rate is 58%. Liz Cheney has convinced herself. Besides being Abe Lincoln, who's going to run for president in 2024, she's convinced herself that 58% of Republican voters are my number robots. Who just inhaled the Kool-Aid that evil maniacal Donald Trump fed us. We're so stupid that we need her to show us the way.

"Presented by Amazon. Hey, good morning, playbook or some ragu Navalny, it's Thursday. And today's show, what we know and what we don't when it comes to Ukraine. It's your Politico playbook daily briefing. Just before 6 a.m. Moscow time, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced in the televised speech that its forces were entering Ukraine. Within moments, this an explosions were heard by reporters stationed in Kyiv and cities throughout the country. President Joe Biden in a statement called it quote an unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces. Ukrainian foreign minister dmytro kuleba, said on Twitter that quote, Putin has just launched a full scale invasion of Ukraine. Later, he added a to do list for outside nations that included devastating sanctions. Fully isolate Russia by all means in all formats, and weapons, equipment, financial and humanitarian assistance for Ukraine. The U.S. officials said that, quote, full scale sanctions against Russia would be announced today. Politico's Alex ward is here to talk about the situation in Ukraine. He's our national security reporter and anchor of our national security daily newsletter. Alex, how's it going? I've been better. Yeah, fair enough. Shortly after news of attacks on Ukraine broke, Biden announced he would address the U.S. public today to outline what he called consequences for Russia calling the attack to unprovoked and unjustified. What have you been hearing about what we'll be hearing today? Well, we're definitely going to see more and very intense sanctions on Russia. These will be done coordination with allies and they're going to strike at the heart of the Russian financial financial system. While I don't have any proprietary information as of this moment, I think it's fair to assume, though, that two of Russia's most important banks spare bonk and vtb will be sanctioned since they hold about 750 billion in Russia's assets about half of their total. You'll probably see members of Putin's inner circle totally sanctioned, probably have their assets frozen so they can not go to their luxury apartments in London or get a massage in Germany or anything like that. And then you will probably also see export controls on technologies going to Russia. And that could include semiconductors made with U.S. parts or with U.S. IP. And we've got three Asian partners willing to join us in this effort, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, who will block their semiconductors again with U.S. IP or components from going to Russia, which could, again, hurt industry and the military..

"To shake the guy's hand as the crowd cheer. And this caught everyone by surprise in terms of you know ron to santa's who has been a strong supporter of vaccines finds himself Getting more allied with anti vaccines. I'm jeremy siegel. This is politico dispatch and today gary out on how and why rhonda santa's has gone from vaccine spokesman to conspiracy theory bystander. Before we go any further. I just want to ask. Why is this important. Like why should we care nationally about disentis and what he says and doesn't when it comes to cove it because i think the rhonda scientists right now barring trump running again. I think the antithesis clearly the front runner for twenty twenty four. I think all the polls show that they show that he has gotten a lot of national attention. He's on fox news constantly. he's he's been ostensibly raising money for his reelection campaign but he's been hitting a lot of states he was in nebraska this past weekend. He's been to california. He's been to wisconsin. He's been to pennsylvania. He's become a hot ticket. I mean a lot of republicans across the country are viewing him as a potential heir to trump. so what happens in florida which is also the third largest state in the nation it could have ramifications well into twenty twenty four if disentis remains position as a presumed front runner and challenger to biden. So let's talk about de santa's of transformation here. Because you mentioned the surprise you felt when he stood shoulder to shoulder with someone telling lies about vaccines at an anti vaccine mandate announcement earlier this week. How have we seen to santa's transform on this so the beginning of this year the governor was gung ho about vaccines. He i mean he was even at the white house. For an event and operation warp speed last winter went to the white house and talk to the white house about the vaccine. I would always tell my folks. We hope we get the vaccine. But you should definitely not count on it because it's ambitious. It hasn't happened before so the fact that it is. That's a great testament to operation. Works being all the work that so many people have done so we couldn't soon as the pfizer news came out. I flew up with you. I work speed. And i told my folks we have been planning for it but i was like we get a better sense of the timeline. Let's make sure that we're leading from the front. We really wanted to embrace this. I know other. And then you have all these events across the state. They set a pop-up clinics so it was very much promoting vaccine especially among the elderly which is a large contingent of the population of florida. The best thing you can do if you haven't gotten the vaccine particularly if you're somebody who's older particularly if you have any health problems is to is to is to get a shot so it is an interesting split screen here to have him going from this position where he was like encouraging people to get vaccines doing all these efforts to to get vaccines to where he's at an event where people are now raising conspiracy theories about vaccines. What's behind that shift on vaccines. Well his administration and the people around him and say that basically he's not opposed to vaccines and and let's let's be clear to point out. He has gotten vaccinated and he has not really said anything. Negative about the vaccines. He's diluted the message. Fortunately the state of florida passed the law this most recent legislative session that get a lot of different things. It prevented a private businesses from requiring proof of vaccination to just do normal things like go to a movie or go to a restaurant vaccine passports but that also applied to government agencies and so has cut a deemphasize that he started to say things. Like you know well. The vaccine haven't worked out the way we thought they would in terms of creating herd immunity. I think we had assumed that it would provide more sterilizing immunity and said the positive tests and people like well. Is this happening. I was vaccinated. Shouldn't happen and all. I can tell you is what the data we see in the hospitals. We talked to all point that this is helping reduce dramatically mortality particularly. Where he he's talked about breakthrough breakthrough infections and things of that nature so again. He's not saying anything completely anti but it's still been an evolution and so the question is well what caused this evolution. Is it because there is an element within the republican base. That is skeptical of vaccines is it because Former president donald trump got booed when he mentioned vaccines at a recent rally in alabama. I recommend taking the vaccine's i did it. It's good take the vaccines but you got. That's okay you got your freedoms his administration insists no he's anti mandate he's not anti vaccine but it's been an interesting juxtaposition from where we were at the start of the year till now. I guess i'm wondering though like with talking about breakthroughs. Of course that makes sense and as an observer with the anti mandate stances you can see how the politics of that can totally make sense especially when you consider people you might be trying to win the support of as a future presidential contender appealing to me notions of choice with it but misinformation is a totally different beast. Right when it comes to a deadly pandemic like how do you as a reporter parse the difference between politics and the dangers of conspiracies. When it's governor standing side by side with someone talking about conspiracies. Well i mean. I i did want to point out that he was asked about this on tuesday and then on tuesday he said well. I don't remember the person saying that. And the guy. He stood right next to talking at his press conference right and then he said and it was something i would never say. I mean when he's been asked about vaccines he's said. Well you know i did. Fifty plus events The beginning of the year promoting vaccines but again. I mean it. It's just. I know that we quote a health expert in our story. The that says this mixed messaging can cause problems because you can create doubt and anxiety among people when you do not seem to be as strong message as you once swore so public health wise. Why is that so important in florida right now. What is the situation there. Well what you have is a situation where the delta variant may have gone on longer and caused more illnesses and deaths than maybe the administration was anticipating when the delta variant i began to effective floridians. The governor said that it was it was it was. It was a wave like the way that they had had in the summer of twenty twenty and that he expected it to start to diminish august like it had the previous year. And that's not really what happened. And in fact florida reached record highs in terms of the numbers of infections and in terms of number of hospitalizations. It's hard to get a complete staff shot of the situation with fatalities but suffice to say. Roughly ten thousand people have been added to the total tally for deaths since late july. And that's about twenty percent of florida's death total and clearly. There are some dynamics here. I mean you you have. The possibles are reported. That a lot of the people who were in fact showing up we're unvaccinated and what we've seen is it appears that maybe a crest has been reached. Cases are beginning to go down. Hospitalizations are beginning to go down. And that's happened within the last one to two weeks so maybe maybe the rough patches over but still it's sort of.

"It-it's unequivocal that human activities are responsible for climate change lower more certain that we're the ones doing this at the planet that's the finding of a new study by the un's intergovernmental panel on climate change. This is the first time that you really see in the kind of unequivocal linkage between human activity climate change and the disasters that we're seeing a new study says global temperatures are set to rise beyond the target limit of one point five degrees celsius. The heat waves the heavier rainfall floods. That's climate change baby. And you know. We don't have a whole lot of time to reverse course actually. Every pathway that the scientists analyze took us beyond one and a half degrees celsius of warming above preindustrial levels. There was one scenario in which after crossing we get back down below that but that one and a half degrees is important. Because that's the threshold at which scientists have said that. A lot of these changes to our climate will become irreversible. This report obviously is meant to get us to say. Hey we've got to do something about this. Were already heading towards that trajectory which the scientists said we certainly are then it becomes about. How much can you limit those bad things. It's not a we're going to prevent it all because at this point we can't but how bad are we going to let it get. I'm anthony. dragnet this politico energy today. Politicos zach coleman on the code red warning from the intergovernmental climate panel and how far on the ropes. We already are in the battle against climate change. It's tuesday august tenth. How long have we been aware of kind of the scientific consensus about how bad this could get. And what has kept us from responding to that. This has been a three decade exercise of. I told you so from the science community. It's not a secret. Scientists blame the odorless colorless carbon dioxide gas for these potentially dangerous changes around the planet As a result of our need for energy we've been taking carbon out of the earth in the form of fossil fuels and burning it. We're actually getting more clear that the predictions that were made decades ago are accurate. If these scientists are correct about twenty five percent of florida that would be flooded sometime in the next century along with low lying areas all over the world. So what needs to be done is the science needs to be listened to even the pessimists. The one that predict these terrible cases aren't really predicting large effects for fifty years. Or so so. I don't see that we should pour money on this problem in the short run. We should have an intelligent program. But i don't see the reason for haste there's not necessarily a policy response that works for every single country in the exact same way but it is very clear that combusting fossil fuels in allowing their emissions to escape into the atmosphere is going to continue to heat the planet. And that however you get to reducing those is what countries should be doing. I feel like scientists normally are pretty cautious in their tone but this report was very stark and the rhetoric followed it. How did scientists talk about their findings. Here you know i think. Scientists are trying to toggle between the empirical objective gloom here and also giving people the hope and agency to change. Course what they're saying though. Is that if you have steep swift widespread aggressive emissions reductions by reducing fossil fuels or you know expanding tree planting which will not do enough. You can try to limit that damage. You have to do things differently. Much faster than any country is doing zach something. We hear from republican politicians often. Is this idea that we can simply innovate our way to avoid the worst consequences of climate change through new technologies. What does the report say about the role of technological innovation and whether that's sufficient to address the problem so the report says that with massive expansion of carbon dioxide removal that we could end up in that lowest emissions pathway but there are limitations. The report says that at a certain point trees. Don't take up as much carbon as they once did all that extra heat trapping gas just stays in the atmosphere basically filling up a water cup and there's no room left it just going to start spilling out all over the place. How does this report's findings stack up against what. Democrats are proposing to do through their reconciliation. Bill well the reconciliation. Bill will send a lot more money towards climate initiatives and the budget reconciliation. Bill will do more to combat climate change than any legislation ever ever in the history of the senate. That is a promise but we don't know exactly how that spending is going to break out. We just got some pretty vague top lines but one can imagine that even with three point five trillion dollars It's not gonna be enough to solve climate change from the us perspective because not all three point. Five trillion is going to go to climate pretty much every leading presidential candidate on the democratic cyber posing climate plans. That were way bigger than that. So you really gotta think about what is the scale here. And i don't know that washington fully understands the scale. How do you explain. Climate changes occurred ten thousand years ago before man had a carbon footprint in case we have forgotten because we keep hearing the two thousand fourteen has been the warmest year on record. I asked the chair. You know what this is. it's a snowball. Can you give us the pessimistic case off this report in. Can you make an optimistic case. Can make an optimistic case. The pessimistic case is we've been saying this for years and the time is running shorter so we've put ourselves in this position and it's gonna be really hard to right the ship. The optimistic case is yes. I think that countries do have a clear eyed vision of what needs to be done. I think that there is momentum to reducing emissions and. I think it's coming from not just politicians but from society in from the business sector as well congress in i would imagine other political bodies across the world are really lagging indicators if something happens and the legislative level is because if finally has reached a critical mass where congress cannot it. Maybe we're nearing that point me. What was interesting talking to some of these scientists for the report. they're saying. These extremes are happening so frequently that we don't even have time to readjust our expectations and our models before another one hits so everything is scrambled right now..

"Many of them have left their jobs. Now have any of these systems. Ben improved i mean. We're we're in the middle of another surge in infections right now. I know it's not really the same as like scrambling to figure this out at the beginning of the pandemic but we're being hit hard by delta. Are these problems that persist or have we figured out. I don't know how to fix some of this. These problems still exist today. Which is huge concern for public health officials in federal officials alike. Who are in the middle of trying to figure out how to contain delta look. Some states have made improvements to their to their data platforms. They've hired new vendors. New contractors got new kinds of systems in place and tried to train staff. But it's nowhere near where it needs to be particularly because they don't have the funding that they need to improve this entire process yet. President biden has allocated tens of millions of dollars to this issue specifically in his budget The cdc has promised to divert that money in the coming months but this is still a process and it will take years so we're nowhere near where we need to be right now. Whose fault is this. you said. We should've updated a lot of this stuff like ten years ago. i mean. why didn't we end. Who who's that up to. It's up to congress in the federal government to make sure that public health departments across the country have the funding. They need I think part of this is because we've been battling other challenges in the public health sphere for some time that took people's thinking away from the data modernization issue Onto other issues. You know after nine eleven there were as a lot of money that was put toward things like bioterrorism prevention or Making sure our public health departments you know had the resources they need to fight things like anthrax rate and so that was a huge talking point in focal point after nine eleven and then things shifted under the obama administration where we were trying to fight disease overseas. So there was a bulla their zeka. There are all sorts of other global viruses that we were trying to dedicate our resources to you know we did have flare ups with for example. H one n one But it was almost as though those flare ups here in the us were not big enough to grab the attention of the stakeholders at in the federal government to make them see that. We needed more resources. For key surveillance and for data modernization improvements in part of the problem is that this is just a swiss cheese type of problem whereby every state has almost a different kind of data system they use to track reportable diseases or infectious diseases. And so getting every single state on board to be able to change their systems and sort of work together is is a huge task and not every state health department is willing to make those large changes because they're so used to their old systems and their staff is trained with their old systems. So it's really about finding ways to get the right kind of technology in front of these public health officials where they can use it. They know how to use it. It could work well and that they're comfortable with it and they get the right people in place you know how to use these systems and that's going to be a huge struggle months and years to come erin banco. Thanks so much for talking with me. Thanks for having me. also today. Israeli prime minister naftali bennett will visit the white house. Later this month and meet with president biden for the first time since assuming office. That's according to state lend from press secretary. Jen psaki bennett. Took office in june after the ousting of prime minister netanyahu the conservative leader who had been in power since two thousand nine. Netanyahu made multiple visits to the us during his time as prime minister and had a close relationship with former president trump. Speaking in a press conference on wednesday bennett said the topic of iran would be central to his conversation with biden on august. Twenty sixth and that they'll discuss in approach to prevent iran from nearing a nuclear breakout and the treasury department is taking steps to prevent the taliban from accessing four hundred fifty million dollars in aid from the international monetary fund in the wake of the group's takeover of afghanistan. The imf with us backing is issuing billions of dollars to aid poorer countries. A portion of those assets is scheduled to be allocated to afghanistan next week in event that has generated urgent pushback from republican lawmakers. The move to block. The funds is the latest effort by the us government to withhold financial resources from the taliban after it. Also cut off access to afghanistan's central bank assets. Roughly seven billion dollars of which are held at the us federal reserve. Today's episode of politico dispatch included music composed by brake master cylinder.

"Who came before him. There's been all kinds of write ups. And i think the the answer to this will as somebody sent in the story i just wrote his is perhaps something for the history books At the same time fairly or unfairly it is falling on biden. It's he's you know he he. It's the coda to this war this this forever war and he wanted to do it. A certain way and that is not happening at the moment and as much as you know the by the administration is pointing to all these things like you know biden had did specifically say. Hey that i'm the fourth president who's inherited this war. I do not want to give it to a fifth president. And i think most americans from at least when you when you look at the surveys agree with that but of course. This is a different question. This is not. This is not a policy question. This is an execution of the policy. And it's that execution that now has has backfired and is is and that is all on biden. I mean it's going to be put on him and the trouble that the president got into was you know he. He specifically answered questions about the taliban coming in and what the taliban be able to take over the country and then this was not long ago. This was weeks ago likelihood. There's going to be the taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely. And he said they're not capable of. They don't have the capability to do this. There would be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy. Those are his exact words and it happened. So it's it's fairer unfair. It's going to fall on him but he was. He was so wrong and so recently in close to these events that it is going to fall. A lot of this is going to fall on him now. Know having said all this. There's this is over. You know we're talking about this in the middle of this crisis. Lots of things are still unfolding. So i'll use that as the caveat here but you know at the moment what he's facing is a lot of finger pointing directly at him natasha correctly so much for talking with me.

"When you watch the biden team they have a playbook for how they handle crises. And that playbook is you. Don't respond right away. They would wait it out. They were taking their time. There were think about their messaging and then they came out and always seem to work for them. This time. it did not work for them. The president was hardly visible as he deposited his weekend retreats at camp david he left it to his spokesperson in a statement to reiterate that he does not regret his decision. An orderly drawdown is the phrase. The administration is sticking with in backfired. Royally and that is because he is the commander in chief. Commander in chief cannot be seen sitting alone at a table and camp david when this crisis is happening in that is what's coming down on new speak today the unfolding situation afghanistan developments that taking place in the last week. The steps were taking address rapidly-evolving events so what he had to do by speaking to the nation was first of all just show himself but also just to try to bring back. That confidence stands squarely behind my decision. Twenty years i've learned the hard that there was never a good time. Withdraw us forces. I'm jeremy siegel this is. Politico dispatch and today. This is without question the worst moment of his presidency natasha correctly on the blame game over afghanistan. In how it's placed president biden in a by this is the most incoming he has taken and the biggest probably disappointment. I would say from people even his own party even if they're not saying publicly they're saying it privately and that is because you know biden had really put himself forward as he is the foreign policy guy he's the quote unquote adult in the room. Ladies and gentlemen political wisdom halls that americans. the american public doesn't vote on foreign policy. But i think that's an old way of thinking. He said he separated himself from the pack over and over in the primary because he had all of this experience as vice president and for decades in the senate and of course on for relation senate committee twenty nineteen foreign policy is domestic policy in my view and domestic policy is foreign policy. They're deeply connected. Deeply connected set of choices. We make about how to advance the american way of life and our vision for the future and this was an area foreign policy. You know pulling out of afghanistan. This was an area where frankly people thought okay. No no one's gonna have this better than joe biden and so what ended up happening here. The speed with which the taliban took over afghanistan the us deploying more troops after the fact you know days after all of this is happening. I mean it's just it is. It is so goes up against the grain of everything that biden said he was. I think the most troubling. Then you're is. You're seeing the desperation of these afghans trying to get out terrified of the taliban. You know you're here in congress. People talk about how people are reaching out to them and saying that they're making suicide pacts in their in their communities because they're so terrified of the taliban kidnapping there they're girls. It could not get worse for joe biden at this moment because those headlines in the next couple of weeks i mean they will be relentless and those will go right back at biden fairly or unfairly but it will. It'll be on him. I wanna talk about how the administration has handled the fallout from this especially given the headlines. That are coming back to bite him because you mentioned that strategy. They've had of trying to let the dust settle in these situations and how that hasn't exactly worked here. There were days where americans watched terrifying images Terrifying stories coming out of afghanistan and didn't hear from their president. How would you characterize the way. The administration handled the situation over the weekend as the fall of kabul unfolded. Some of it is. You know it's just it's plainly it's unspeakable you can't really spin it. What do you say. There are scenes of panic and pandemonium in couple airport. Today as desperate people pour onto the runway trying to feed the country in what can only be described as chaotic exodus. Now people are literally kicked clinging on the us military our across as they tried to take off the us is in charge of their. You know you did have. Lincoln dispatch to the to the morning shows and saying this is not saigon. This is not our saigon back. This is manifestly not saigon the fact that matters this we went to afghanistan twenty years ago with one every time. He said that it just brought more attention to that parallel. The images that we're seeing is there's a lot of reminiscent of the last days of the vietnam war shows the rest of the world that when we're so dead set on doing something. We can't even orchestrate something that we've been staging for a long time in a way it looks like side-on two point zero to me. This is the beginning of biden's supposedly the beginning of a two week vacation for biden. He was going to go to camp david for part of it and to rehoboth beach back in delaware and they released a photo over the weekend of joe biden sitting at a table. A very long expansive table. All of the seats are empty. So he's sitting there alone staring at a screen and just it's real question of the imagery. Here pressure is growing on the biden administration to respond to that turmoil and afghanistan as the president faces criticism over. Us troops withdrawal obviously. They're trying to show that he was engaged in this his engagement. But just the image of the president sitting alone staring at a screen in the middle of this crisis it did not convey a lot of confidence to the american people and they're just getting really getting ridiculed for it. Republicans here are seeing vulnerabilities. And they're they're just jumping on them. There's you know they're trying to cast biden as you know. He failed cure somebody who said he was going to be this command tough commander in chief and he failed and it is very political and even in the midst of this crisis so on monday afternoon After the white house was criticized over it silence. The nation did finally hear from biden in a speech and one of the central messages that he had was that he did not regret his decision and that he didn't want to hand down this war to another american president. I will not repeat the mistakes we've made in the past mistake of staying in fighting indefinitely conflict is not in the national interest of the united states. This is a conflict that began under president. Bush vice president dick cheney and defense secretary donald rumsfeld played a big role in pushing the start of the war it continued under president obama and president trump. I mean is there validity to what biden said yesterday in the argument that if this does impact his legacy as as president he's essentially taking the fall for american leaders.

"Shots and johnson johnson specifically since you brought up the idea of boosters is that something that's like being considered Not just for boosting the efficacy of j. J. in this situation. But like more broadly for vaccines including pfizer and madonna. Do you think we could see boosters. Needed down the line. One hundred percent. I think that that is imminent. I've talked to health officials who've said that that is imminent Privately but once again. It's this question of confidence in Anthony out she actually alluded to this in a senate hearing last month where he said that he didn't want talk of boosters to make people who haven't gotten the vaccine yet feel as though it's not effective and while you understand that argument the clock is also taking on making decisions about boosters because it is in some way inevitable. I don't think that anybody really thought that we would be one and done forever. We just didn't think it would come so soon The problem is that there's already going to be sort of this politically thorny issue about administering extra doses to americans when there are millions of people abroad. Who haven't even gotten a first dose. The world health organization on wednesday actually said that it wanted everyone to stop administering booster shots until more doses were given to other countries that are waiting for their first wave All of the shots pfizer. Madonna johnson johnson. All of these vaccines that are approved right now in the us authorized. Yeah emergency reminding you. Yeah yeah i mean. That's actually what i was gonna ask about. The vaccines are currently being used under emergency use authorization not full approval which has been a source of hesitancy for some people but you have new reporting looking at when we might see actual full approval for at least one of those shots pfizer. When could that be. What would that mean and also with the difference between full authorization and emergency use totally. I'll say wouldn't have to stop saying authorizing authorizing because there is a difference so that full approval for pfizer at least which filed just a few weeks ahead of moderna in may That could come in a matter of weeks. We could see that by early. September and so the difference between approval and authorisation Emergency use authorization can only happen in the context of a public health emergency. And so if this emergency ends and that's you know government. Call that to say that is ended then that authorization ends and fda also is making that decision on a lower bar than full approval. So they're basically making the decision on. Does this have promise for being beneficial and does that promise outweigh the risks. Whereas full approval is the fda putting it stamp on and saying this is safe and effective They've been tracking all this data about how long immunity lasts if there are side effects. That didn't pop up i You know different populations that might have different responses. Anything like that. Those questions are going to be answered in that paperwork. They filed with the fda so to your question about whether this could help with confidence according to kaiser family foundation. Poll it might. They said that Thirty percent of unvaccinated people say that full approval would help them Be encouraged to get the vaccine but that was also couched in Comments from the pollsters saying that two thirds of those same respondents didn't totally understand the difference between authorization and approval so this very well could join the global company So so you know. We have to take that with grain. It could just be people in the pollsters where it's looking for a proxy for safety looking for some assurance so i don't know that we'll actually see sort of tidal wave after approval but that will help with certain logistical issues. So for instance. President joe biden said that all federal workers are required to get the vaccine or be subject to testing The department of defense doesn't fall under that. They would have to do this themselves. And what they have said is. They are not inclined to require active military to get this vaccine. When it's not yet approved they do require other vaccines active military have to get an amtrak shot which is not available to you and us. But they can't they don't want to require them to get something that isn't approved so that's one way that this could actually help out a lot. Sarah over mall is a health reporter for politico. Who co authors. Politico pull's newsletter. Which you can find at politico dot com slash newsletters. Also today. new polling shows that approval of president biden's handling of the pandemic has slipped to fifty three percent well as overall job approval fell more slightly. The new survey from quinnipiac university found the share of americans who approve of biden's handling of cove. It is down twelve points from may and his job approval is down three points to forty six percent. The numbers come just over six months into biden's term as his administration faces a surge in the delta variant but also as the president has been touting his ability to get a bipartisan infrastructure. Bill passed in congress. A fetus predecessor was unable to accomplish and one that if successful could back up the white house's messaging that biden can get things done and press secretary. Jen psaki is accusing senate. Republicans of quote moving in lockstep to block the biden administrations pick to lead the bureau of alcohol. Tobacco and firearms asked that. Wednesday's press briefing about the delay in david shipments. Confirmation sake noted that the atf has not had a confirmed director in six years. Republicans have publicly expressed opposition to chipman leading the atf. Arguing that he favors too many gun restrictions and claiming to anti-gun to lead the agency but chipman has yet to secure the support of all fifty members of the senate democratic caucus which would allow them to be confirmed without any republican support.

It doesn't even have the fifty votes necessary to pass the senate either but as usual senator joe manchin will be in the middle of all the drama. He offered a compromise proposal last week. That even received an endorsement from stacey abrams. Here's the problem. Though per from abrahams meant that many republicans immediately shot it. Down mentioned believes that democracy requires bipartisanship and he's crowded an identity as a master deal maker some colleagues roll their eyes at that and to be fair his results.

It never really had a chance in the senate and it's not the bill that this white house would have crafted nell. Speaking out against the bill has become synchronizing in some progressive circles. But mentioned is doing a favor for a lot of other democrats who are too scared to speak out against the bill and trying to craft an alternative one other person to watch as this legislation is debated this week vice president kamla harris.
