The use of absentee ballot boxes is rejected by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, the ruling also requires only the actual person voting can return a ballot in that battleground state. The state's primary is August 9th I'm Scott Carr. You're listening to Bloomberg businessweek with Carol messer and Bloomberg quick takes Tim steinbeck from Bloomberg radio. A recent survey from travel services company trivago found that four and 5 consumers expect 2022 will be their best summer yet. This is rising fuel prices, labor shortages, and an abundance of flight cancellations, snarl airports across the globe already making summer travel complicated and really testing our patients and our pocketbooks. I don't know, Carol, I've had a better summer. Mine. Yeah, I don't know. We're not part of that survey. Bloomberg news senior markets reporter kitty greifeld in Bloomberg markets, senior editor Mike Regan, asked trivago CEO axel heifer, why he thinks travelers are looking past the inconvenience for the prospect of excitement. It's a very interesting point in time to be honest because we are coming out of the pandemic and everybody was looking very much forward to the summer travel and you see actually a very strong demand for summer. But on the other hand, you also can see that the experience is not good. Prices are very high. As you said, you have labor shortages everywhere. So the outlook is actually not that good. Yeah, excellent. Is there any sense of when things will get back to normal, this has just been a really nasty summer as case set for delays and cancellations. It's already light at the end of the tunnel that you can see. Yeah, it's not that easy to be honest because I mean, it's not only in the travel industry. I mean, you've got labor shortages pretty much everywhere. And I mean, to me, the question really is, how do you get the world back into balance? So there is a lot more demand than the what can be filled by the current staff levels and by supply and I think we will probably see a slowdown in demand. I have to see a slowdown demand. And over years, demand supply will meet each other. And so, actually, it's interesting. So trivago has actual data points here. You have a study that found that 83% of respondents believe that summer of 2022 will be the best yet for travel and adventure sort of square that circle for us. How does that sort of be a possibility amid some of the themes that we're talking about? Yeah, so in the pandemic, we have seen one thing very, very clearly. I mean, no matter how difficult the situation has been and no matter how big the health will always have been, people want to travel in summer. And so they need to get a break, they need to break out of their daily routine. So and that's what I think what you can see in the survey that we've run that coming out of the pandemic, we are all looking very much forward to the summer. But the experience in the summer in many, many places is actually not that good because the supply is not able to meet the demand plus obviously you have all these problems in the world, which are leading to bad service to high prices. And I mean for us, that's actually interesting because we compare prices. So in a way, higher prices and a bigger discrepancy in different price levels is for as good because we can provide more value to our users. Axle Katie and I are major market nerds if they didn't warn you. So we often view every story from sort of the market angle and the big story this summer is the currency market weakness in the Euro. It's almost trading dollar for dollar on parity against the dollar and the dollar at multiyear highs against many currencies. Is that affecting travel trends at all? Are we seeing more Americans visit Europe and fewer Europeans visit America this summer? I mean, you've got transatlantic travel up in both directions. Not unexpectedly. So you can't really see that at least in the numbers that we have to constantly see that because you have this overall recovery of transatlantic travel that is just dominating the overall trend. I think it might be something that you potentially will see in the months to come. Because you're right. I mean, it got a lot cheaper for Americans to go to Europe. Have you seen any difference in how people are traveling post pandemic? Whether that's with someone or the type of trips that they're taking yeah, I mean, we've got the usual suspects on top of the list. So in the U.S., you've got Las Vegas Orlando, New York City on the top 5. So we haven't seen that fundamental shift. Asia is still not back because obviously the situation there is more difficult, but other than that, the behavior is much more normal compared to what we've seen last year and the year before. Axel, we were talking a little bit about where people are going. If I look at some of the data that you sent over, Las Vegas, favorite domestic destination, if I look down the list, it seems like there's a theme, and that theme is going to the beach. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, but that's a very consistent to what we've seen in the last two years. It's really breaking out of the city and going really for summer vacation where you can relax. I hear hot destinations and I think pricey destinations. And I'm really a cheapskate at heart. So I'm curious, are there any sort of off the beaten track destinations that people are going? Any sort of bargain hidden gem getaways that we should know about. Yeah, I mean, I mean, this summer actually, there are no real bargains to be honest. But obviously you should avoid the top destinations. So Vegas, New York, Orlando, Panama City B et cetera, they are pretty well booked. So the best advice to get value for money is actually to be very flexible to be honest. So to avoid air transportation, go buy your own car and then

"Welcome to democracy now, democracy now dot org, the war and peace report. I'm Amy Goodman. Japan's former prime minister Shinzo Abe has been shot and killed by an assassin wielding what appeared to be a homemade gun. Abe was campaigning for a parliamentary election Friday morning in the city of nada in central Japan when two shots rang out. Images of the attacks aftermath shows security officials tackling a man in a great T-shirt. They later named the 41 year old suspect as tetsuya, yamagami, a former member of Japan's maritime self defense force. Footage from the scene shows what appears to be an improvised double barreled gun. Japan's strict gun control laws prevent almost everyone from possessing guns. In 2021, there were ten shooting incidents at Japan just one gun death by comparison, the U.S. typically records 45,000 gun deaths each year. Shinzo Abe was airlifted to a nearby hospital with injuries to his neck and heart. He was pronounced dead earlier today from blood loss. She was 67 years old. They was Japan's longest running prime minister when he stepped down in 2020, citing poor health. Over nearly 8 years in office, Abe remained pro nuclear, despite the 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown following an earthquake in tsunami. Throughout his career, Abe tried unsuccessfully to do away with article 9 of Japan's peace constitution, which renounces war and bars Japan from using or threatening to use military force. We'll have more on Shinzo Abe's assassination and his legacy after headlines when we go to Japan. Ukraine's government says at least four people have been killed and several others wounded by Russian rocket fire and hierarchies and elsewhere Russian warplanes bombed snake island early Thursday just after Ukrainian troops landed on the Black Sea territory and hoisted blue and yellow Ukrainian flags to celebrate Russia's withdrawal from the island In Moscow, president Vladimir Putin said Russia's military operation in Ukraine is yet to start in earnest more than a 130 days after he ordered Russia's military to invade. We're hearing that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. What can I say? Let them try. This could be often heard that the west wants to fight us until the last Ukrainian. It's tragedy for the Ukrainian people. But it looks like it's heading in that direction. But everybody should know that largely speaking. We haven't even yet started anything in earnest.

Under mounting pressure from his own allies. President Biden signing a new executive order, aiming to protect abortion rights. We can not allow an out of control Supreme Court. Working in conjunction with extremist elements of the Republican Party to take away freedoms and our personal autonomy It comes two weeks after roe versus wade was overturned. And after at least 14 states have ended nearly all abortion services. A world leader was assassinated overnight, a man with a homemade gun was able to shoot and kill former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe at a campaign event in the city of Nara. Jeff pozole got the latest from Andy field. What do we know so far? Shocking part of this is that it happened in Japan. This doesn't happen in Japan, shootings are virtually nonexistent. I think if they even get into the double digits in that country in a year, that's a really bad year. In the United States, we get into double digits by before midnight on Friday night any weekend. So it's pretty extraordinary that this happened and of course this man did not have access to a gun. What he had was access to plans on how to build one. And he built one himself, which if you've seen the video of this, it looked like a cannon going off. And Shinzo Abe was probably dead immediately with all the blood loss. And the way he was hit there, he was one of the longest serving prime ministers in Japan's history. I think it was 8 years that he took some time off in the middle of all that. And then he basically retired and resigned from the job just in the middle of the pandemic around December of 2020 because he had had some medical issues, some recurring bowel inflammation that he had that he needed to take care of. And he's been pretty much out of the picture since then, and it was interesting that he's back on the campaign trail. Not for himself, but for other folks who were running trying to continue his own vision in that country. So what do we know about the shooter? We know he's 41 years old. We don't know much more than that. We have his name. He basically said he had a grudge which was against shenzhou Avi, but we don't know specifically what that was. It's just a horrendous day in Japan. There's something that we have become numb to in the United States with these horrendous mass shootings, almost on a daily basis is something that literally knocks people off their feet in Japan where, again, it just doesn't happen there. We don't know the motive, at least not yet, but what has been the response from the Japanese government so far? Well, the Japanese government has most of Japan is stunned by this, they're trying to figure out how it happened, how he avoided security there, how he was even able to make this gun. Certainly it is an aberration in Japanese life that anything like this happens, but certainly not to a political figure or towering political figure like shinju abi, who was a big ally to the United States. He revitalized the Japanese economy. He led the nation to take a stronger role in Asian. And basically kind of a rare point of political stability in that country because before him, there had been a whole string of prime ministers that had kind of come and gone as Japan's power in the world in Wayne.

"Dot com schedule your free estimate today. 6 ten here on WTO and it has shocked both Japan and the world. Former prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, was assassinated today on a street in western Japan while delivering a campaign speech. It is an attack that has stunned a nation with some of the strictest gun control laws anywhere. The accused shooter apparently circumvented those laws by building his own weapon. Investigators say Abe was shot at close range in a country where Reuters reports that were just ten gun related incidents last year for the whole nation of Japan. We're taking you live this evening to Chris Johnstone, the Japan chair for CSIS, the center for strategic and international studies. It's kind of you to take a little time to be with Sean mentioned that people in Japan are shocked. It's really the whole world that is shocked here because of the great influence that Shinzo Abe had on the world. Can you talk about him as a statesman and what legacy he is leaving? Sure, and thank you for the opportunity to speak with you tonight. Yes. Prime minister Abe was really a seminal figure in Japan. One of the most consequential prime ministers in Japanese history. He and the tributes that are pouring in from around the world really reflect the amount of respect across the globe. That is held for him. He did so much, I think, to restore Japan's leadership role on the world stage. And that's reflected in what we're seeing today. And we talked about how he died and it is so surprising that there wasn't assassination in a place like Japan where there are so few gun incidents in the let alone deaths, security for dignitaries as much different in Japan than it is in the U.S. and other countries. Talk about that as well. Yeah, they have bodyguards, of course, for politicians, but the perception of threat is nothing like what we have here. As you said in your segment up front, ten gun incidents in the entirety of 2021 last year, just one fatality, so hard to get a gun in Japan. So there is a perception of safety that pervades and is generally true. But this was a case in which a threat could come right up next to prime minister Abe and kill him with a basically a handmade weapon. Really shocking really shocking for Japan. This is also terrible as we have reiterated. It's important perhaps to also point out that Abe while being the former leader still had a great deal of influence in the country and was certainly at work when he lost his life. That's exactly right. He started he was the longest serving prime minister in Japan's history. He was in office for 8 years, stepped down in 2020, but remained a very important power broker behind the scenes, an important voice on Japanese foreign policy. And as I said before, he really played a critical role in restoring Japan's leadership in the world. He was the head of the curve in seeing China as an emerging threat and devising a strategy to deal with it. He brought Japan into the trans Pacific partnership, a trade agreement in 2013 and held that agreement together with 12 other countries after president Trump took the United States out of it. And he loosened restrictions on Japan's military to allow it to cooperate more closely with the United States. Just really a dramatic figure who had a deep impact and a positive one on U.S. Japan relations. Chris, thanks for joining us tonight. We appreciate it. Thank you very much. I appreciate the opportunity. Chris Johnstone, Japan, chair for the center for strategic and international studies.

"Oversight. Well, representative Jim banks I actually spent about an hour on the phone with Julie Kelly last night talking about that. I worked extensively with posse comitatus issues as a United States Army officer. And tell your staff, they're free to give me a call. If they like to discuss it further because I think there's some nuances there. But look, if Adam Schiff is doing it, there's something going on and there's something dirty. But you mentioned oversight and oversight is key and I want to ask you if the Republicans were in power today. What kind of oversight would they be doing of this revelation that Hunter Biden connected Sino tech, some sort of Chinese company that apparently Hunter Biden has some sort of interest in was the recipient of a large amount of the oil released from the United States strategic reserve that was sent over to China. What would you guys be doing if you were in charge now? Because as long as these Democrats are in charge, we're never going to get any oversight of the administration. Yeah, this is crazy, but it shouldn't be surprising to anybody. It's just a new example of the corruption that we knew already existed. The Biden family is the most corrupt family to ever occupy The White House and that's saying a lot after the Clinton. Yes. But we knew this already that the laptop told us this. It told us that the Biden family is deeply entangled with our greatest adversaries, including the Chinese Communist Party, including Russia entanglements into the worst parts of Ukraine. They've taken millions of dollars. We know that Joe Biden was skimming money off the top and profiting himself from the access that his son was selling to these foreign adversaries when Joe when Joe was vice president and now we can assume that those activities are still continuing today. So I talked about Jim Jordan a little bit ago. I know one of his very first objectives is going to be to launch an investigation into Hunter Biden. His business activities and the family to expose this even further. I can tell you, I mean, we already know it. We know that if this was Donald Trump Jr., it would have impeached Donald Trump already. For what, the 15th time. How many times are you impeach him already? I lost him. Right now. I mean, this is insane. When they pieced out Trump for stuff that he didn't do, but the Biden family did do. I mean, that's the fact of the matter. And we have a moral duty as Republicans to launch into these investigations and hold the Biden administration of these Democrats accountable for their abuse of power. And I guarantee you on day one, that's going to be a primary objective of the Republican majority come January. Well, representative Jim banks, I got to tell you, I talked to a lot of people in the base and a lot of people are a little nervous because for a long time, we had go along, get along folks running the Republican Party who refused to take a hard stand. They wanted to get back to business as usual, clinking the glasses with the donors and stuff. Some of them are a little suspicious that the new Republican Congress is going to be fully committed to doing its legitimate oversight, not seeking vengeance, but actually monitoring and doing a fair, but thorough job of vetting the activities of the executive branch..

"Smith, president and CEO of the common sense society. And I think we have lots of talk about Marion. Can you tell us a little about what the common sense society is? Sure. The common sense of society is an educational foundation active in the United States and Europe, and we promote liberty, prosperity, and beauty. And we do that through hosting educational fellowships for young professionals and young scholars, and we have several open right now. Those are 6 day long programs. We encourage your listeners to apply or to recommend them on a fly or hosting those in South Carolina, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Hungary over the next few months. We also produce a curricular resources for middle and high school students, including basic economics and civics, and host teacher seminars, which are going to happen also in Florida. This month, so I'll be down there with about a hundred teachers for three days. We want to fight for our civilization, which begins with introducing new generations to it. And of course, shoring up our own principles here in the United States. We have a great country and I hope we're not the first generation to leave it. Worse off than we found it. Well, you know, I recently wrote a book about this very same topic. So I think we're kind of tracking. Now, I was following your Twitter account at Smith Marion Smith, just like it sounds. And you offered your condolences to Shinzo Abe. What does what does the murder of the former prime minister of Japan say about our first world culture? Japan is Jeb has closely integrated in many ways to the rest of the world. This seems so alien to Japan, even though it does have a history of political assassinations. Right, right. Including going back to the 1930s when there was a lot of political violence not only in Japan, but of course in Weimar, Germany. And even here in the United States. So I sadly think it follows a general trend of an architect in political violence and highly charged ideological political movements right across the western world and Japan has been considered a western country since World War II. And I had my grandfather fight in the Pacific theater against the Japanese. His brother was a navy pilot and shot down in that theater. In fact, in my office, I've got a mortar that my motor around that my grandfather bought back on the ship from an island. Gosh, I hope it was deactivated. It certainly was. I think it's interesting the way, obviously, Japan has been reintegrated into the world community after World War II. I had to privilege of serving over there with the Japanese on a couple of major exercises, very interesting culture. But throughout the first world, we're seeing more political violence. And some of it is even political violence by the government directed at citizens. If you look at what happened is happening in Holland, the Netherlands where the common sense society is doing some training as you just mentioned. The police are firing on peaceful protesters. You're absolutely.

What Does Abe Assassination Mean for the Pacific?

"Well, captain Jerry Hendricks, Shinzo Abe also was very outspoken that the United States should drop its strategic ambiguity position regarding Taiwan. Which Joe Biden apparently did before it was walked back. I know you've served with Japanese forces. I've served with Japanese forces. It's a very interesting military culture, very different than ours. But it has some major capabilities. Do you think Japan will continue its path to being a full security partner rather than kind of a second tier military power, which it kind of has been, as it is limited by article 9 of its constitution. I think it is going to continue to evolve towards again a more realistic security posture in the Pacific. The Chinese threat simply compels it to do so. Abe was able to elevate the conversation and I'm sure his death and the conversation is going to go on within Japan and then eastern Asia following his death as they consider his legacy is just going to continue this impetus towards becoming more realistic in approach the world. So I think that we'll continue to see Japan spend more spend wisely to spend in more modern weapons, the types of missiles, mines, aircraft, and ships that it's going to require.

Democrats Stumble Over Their promises

"What is your messaging for all of that? And how do you propose solutions? What's going to make this stuff better? Sure. Well, the unfortunate thing is that when the Republicans don't have anything good to run on. So what they're running on are narratives that they believe will scare people. Some of it's incredibly misleading. And certainly some of it isn't even remotely the president's fault or anything in Congress. Okay. Who's the president allegedly? The desiccated old fossil. Desiccant old fossil. And his gas really expensive and inflation going through the roof. It seems to be. Okay, so what she's essentially saying is it's a false narrative that gas is really expensive going to a roof. To make everything better as president. That's kind of the apply problem. That would be crusty, right? Yes, this is and he's not getting it done, right? This is the dick Durbin line. Dick Durbin yesterday tried to say, well, you know. The Republicans, Mitch McConnell, they're not talking about the important stuff. They're trying to focus on the discrete issues like the economy. He actually said that.

Boris Johnson Has No One to Blame but Himself

"One lesson is, you can't have a leader who does one thing, yet tells you to do another. So why he's locking down Britain and Boris Johnson was a big vaccine mandate guy. He was a big lockdown guy. He was a big COVID hardcore guy. And he's out partying with his pals. As other people are locked out, they couldn't visit their family in nursing homes. As they couldn't bury their family, as they couldn't go out. And porn champagne with his buddies at 10 Downing Street. Unacceptable, unacceptable. And the wool started to gather as he became weaker and weaker and weaker.

Japan's Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Assassinated During Speech

"Very sad news to report. Former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated by a gunman in Japan today. He was shot with and we're still getting details apparently a homemade double barrel shotgun of some sort. He was wounded gravely and he apparently died. This is a tragedy, of course, for Japan, but also for the United States. Former former prime minister Abe was a great Japanese patriot. He stood up to China. He was a loyal ally of the United States. Condolences are pouring in from America and from around the world. Former president Trump called him a great friend of personally and of our country. It's a sad day for Japan, our thoughts and prayers are with that great ally of ours.

"5 5 mic mic in Michigan. Hey Mike, how are you doing? Good. Are you talking to me, Mike? I'm talking to you. You talking to me? Are you talking to me? Happy Friday. Happy Friday. Your comment about your books with your handprint on it. Anyway, I called for something else, but then I hung up and called back because I wanted to chime in on Dan from Kalamazoo. I'm also from Michigan and I'm a CPL holder. And I totally agree with the point you made that number one, the divisiveness is never going to get solved. And we can't give an inch because they're never going to give an inch. So we have to fight for our rights to carry and it's just I'm tired of the Marcus the queen berry from people on our side that they don't want to fight because this is a fight for our freedom. And that was the and that was the and that was the difference between Trump and the Mitt romneys and the Jeb bushes and the and for that matter to some extent that John McCain's of the world. A lot of people argue to this day if John McCain has a presidential candidate, had had the oomph and the wherewithal to expose Barack Obama's personal pastor, Jeremiah Wright, John McCain might have been elected president. He didn't want to do that. He wanted to be unified, you know, John McCain was a guy reaching across the aisle all the time, like Lindsey Graham, let's get along. Let's get along. And I don't like fighting all the time. But we also are going to get steamrolled if we're not careful. They will roll over us. They want to cancel us. They want to shut us down. We have a corrupt media, and you want to talk about the state of journalism. There's a guy named Ben Smith, who used to work for The New York Times. Very enterprising journalist. He attempted to interview Tucker Carlson at some panel as some launch of his new platform. And he spent ten minutes trying to convince Tucker Carlson in the interview that Tucker is a crazy racist. It did not go well for Ben Smith. And to Tucker's credit, he gets up there and it was a zoom interview, wait till I'm going to play the whole thing. I think I'm going to play out. You got to hear this. You've got don't miss this. 17 minutes before the hour. Toll free number 806 5 5 mic. It's been pointed out on social media that within an hour of Shinzo Abe's assassination. Both president Trump and vice president Pence issued statements. Expressing their condolences and outrage and really awful. That's what world leaders do. Nothing all night from The White House finally just moments ago, Biden issues a statement. And he literally said, in the statement, after all the proper things, this is a tragedy for Japan for all who knew him. I had the privilege to work closely with him, as did Trump, incidentally. Biden said, while there are many details that we do not yet know, we know that violent attacks are never acceptable and that gun violence always leaves a deep scar on the communities that are affected by it. That's the American president's response to the assassination of Shinzo Abe in Japan. And it has to be his response because he can't possibly attempt to explain how a nation with some of the strictest gun control regulations on the planet can see a prime minister shot dead in broad daylight. It's not a gun violence problem. And Americans are fed up with the broken record of the left..

I thought that was the way you said his name. But Biden's statement, I'm stunned outraged and deeply saddened by the news that my friend Abe Shinzo, former prime minister of Japan, was shot and killed while campaigning. I visited him in Tokyo. I welcomed him to Washington, now here's where it gets interesting. While there are many details that we do not yet know, we know that violent attacks are never acceptable. And that gun violence always leaves a deep scar on the communities that are affected by it. Oh my lord. Here we go again. Unbelievable.

"You know, you can do that on the Tucker Carlson show because it's an opinion show. The New York Times isn't supposed to be an opinion newspaper in the news section. But that they pretend that opinion is fact in fact his opinion. With Fox News, there are clearly opinion shows in prime time. That are not news shows. They also have new shows that are not opinion shows. I think the line is buried that demarcation is very clear. But it's when they pretend to be objective. That they lose the American people. It's corruption. Pure and simple, they're corrupt. And they pretend to be objected just own it just own that you have a bias. You're a left leaning writer who wants to try to trap Tucker Carlson into saying he's a racist or proving some of these are racist and you fell on your face. 806 5 5 Mike, you disagree. 13 minutes before the hour and the relief factor dot com studios hope you join us. The Mike Gallagher show. This has been a long-term project by the left. It actually began in the 1930s and it came out of the KGB. And what they decided to do is infiltrated the major pillars of U.S. life. So they grabbed control of their culture. They grabbed control of academia, and they grabbed control of the news media. They've been able to inflict tremendous damage and now we are actually at a tipping point. In the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike. You know, when you allow a big mouth like me on the radio to come into your home or your office or your car, it's a good news bad news proposition. When I share stories with you, and I know some people don't like it, but the good news is my dear Friends, peg and Joey Hudson and I had a wonderful vacation last week in Germany. Pegg wanted to see the passion play in oberammergau, which is about an hour and a half from Munich. We just saw Salzburg, which I fell in love with. I want to go back to Salzburg so badly. I want to see Salzburg in the wintertime. What a beautiful, magical city. We loved Munich. We stayed in a beautiful hotel. We stayed in Munich the whole time, and then we sort of went around touring with tour guides and we would be in this like a van. That would take us around and get out and we went to Dachau, this passion play was epic. It was just magnificent. The Bavarian Alps are beautiful. We just had a great time. That's the good news. The bad news is the day after we got back, Peggy started feeling bad. A lot of symptoms, fever, chills, sore throat. Oh yeah. You guessed it. She contracted COVID. And then hours after she was sick, Joey got sick. So now both of them are sick in the bed and the good news is they're not having oxygen problems, the bad news. And this is the part I hate. I hate it when people I love are suffering. I just, I'm such a big baby and they are real sick. You know, they've had a rough time, fever, chills, terrible cough, the whole 9 yards, and of course they keep checking on me because I was in the van with them, understand for hours and hours. It'll be an absolute miracle if I don't get it as well. I hope I don't, but I'd rather I had it than they had it. I really do. I hate that they're so miserable. And all of us are worried. So thanks for praying for Joey and pegg. I'll keep you posted. Hope I'm back Monday. If I'm not, you'll probably be able to be able to figure out why I'm not. You know, I'll be because they're, you know, when I had COVID last Christmas, the symptoms were pretty mild. I had a cough for a few days and a little bit of a fever the first day, but not a big deal. You know, they're talking about this BA 5 variant now and of course the talking point from the mainstream media and who knows what to believe, but the mainstream media is talking point is that it is surging in Europe. Well, where do we go? The world travelers, the hudsons and Gallagher? So, you know, and you know you worry, I don't want to give it to anybody here. Our protocols here at the office is that if we've had close exposure and I definitely had close exposure to somebody with COVID, but our company no longer makes you quarantined and stay out of the office. So, but they do want me to wear a mask when I'm not in the studios, so I'm doing that. I'm trying to stay away from Tracy. Tracy very Riley pointed out, well, yeah, but I have to put the screens together and I touch the same buttons you're touching and so anyway, it's.

Joey is my business manager, the director of my foundation, Gallagher's heroes, the fallen officer fund, I've worked with peg for many, many years in her capacity as a management, an executive with Salem in her selling capacity, and they're like the brother and sister I never had. Both of them came back with me from Germany and now both have COVID. And they've been pretty sick. So if you don't mind lifting peg and Joey up in prayer, I don't think we're talking sick as in hospitalization sick, but they're pretty miserable. No way around it. And but the doctor is being proactive. Of course, they keep checking on me. Since we were in close proximity for, oh, I don't know, 7 days and spent hours and hours together, crammed into a little sightseeing van just the three of us with our, you know, facing each other, it'll be a miracle if I don't get it.

"My inclination is to not appear to be politicizing the assassination of a prominent world leader, but since we are knee deep into this debate over guns and gun violence in America and the American president chooses to respond to the assassination of the ex prime minister by talking about gun violence, leaving a deep scar on the community. I wonder if that's what they're saying in Japan right now. Oh, we have a gun violence problem. No, I'm sure the people of Japan are saying an evil man committed a dastardly cowardly act. I don't think the people of Japan are ringing their hands and debating gun control. But that's what Democrats do. No matter where it happens, Chicago, Philadelphia, or Japan. It must be a gun violence problem.

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Assassinated

"Horrific news out of Japan, the former Japanese prime minister, assassinated, Shinzo Abe, gunned down in the middle of the street while he was on a stump speech, campaigning for somebody he left office in 2020. A guy with a gun went up and put a couple of bullets in him. And Joe Biden couldn't help himself, but issue a public statement advocating for gun control. I can't even believe my eyes. It's so wild.

Two residents spoke against that proposal at a recent public hearing, but members of the council assured them the program would help reduce gun violence in the town. This is vice mayor Mona nickerson. Any murder is one murder too many. And this right here gives us the option to be proactive. Actually, that was Monet nickerson.

With 700 monkeypox cases now reported in the U.S., government officials are stepping up efforts to contain the virus before it spreads further. The Department of Health and Human Services will send 144,000 vaccine doses to cities and states on top of the 56,000 doses the department made available last week. Monkeypox has now spread to 54 countries and territories where the virus isn't already endemic as it has been for years in parts of West Africa. Officials in Beijing appear to be backing off a requirement that most residents get vaccinated against COVID-19. They made the announcement just two days ago, vaccination would have been required for entry and two such public places as gyms museums and libraries starting next week. Officials aren't admitting they've dropped the vaccination requirements, but one city official quoted in state media says people can't enter venues as long as they have a negative virus test result and pass a temperature check.

"Now here's Michael Barr with more on what's going on around the world. Michael. Karen, thank you very much as we've been talking about all this morning former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe has died. Abe died in a Japanese hospital after he was shot during a campaign stop today in Nara, the man who attacked Abe has been arrested, of course, will have more on this story throughout the entire morning. Boris Johnson is facing pressure from his own party to accelerate his exit as UK prime minister. He announced his resignation yesterday. In baseball, the Yankees beat the Red Sox 6 5, the mets one along with the Orioles, the nationals lost along with the Giants, global news, 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quick tank, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts more than a 120 countries, I'm Michael Barr in this is Bloomberg, Nathan. All right, Michael, thank you to 6 19 on Wall Street live from the Bloomberg interactive broker studios. This is Bloomberg day break in Bloomberg's kurumi, mori is back with us live this morning from outside the hospital in Nara, Japan, where prime minister former prime minister Shinzo Abe died of his injuries after being shot at close range at a campaign event with an election just a couple of days away in Japan, kurumi good morning. This is just staggering news that's reverberating around the world. We're hearing reaction from global leaders. What's the latest that you can tell us from where you are outside that hospital? Good morning, Nathan. I'm still on site at Nara medical university hospital. I just left the press conference a short while ago where the hospital president and the ER doctor in charge of actually treating Abe, doctor Fukushima, spoke to the media. They gave us some details, not all the details, but this is what I can tell you that I heard from them. The Doctor Who operated on aave said that they were able to stop the major bleeding, but by then it was too much blood was lost by the time they actually arrived at the hospital here. The bullet had peers of a neck and heart in two places. He was declared dead after about three hours of surgery here at this hospital pronounced dead at 5 O 3 p.m. local time. Again, we saw former First Lady Ade had arrived in the hospital here short while before the press conference, but of course a solemn somber mood and this campus I'm just walking around and seeing Secret Service members just lining the hallway of presumably where Shinzo Abe is laying to rest and this incident is just shocking. It's the assassination setting this huge shock throughout Japan, as you can imagine. Yeah, and I have to think that there are going to be a lot of questions still to come about how something like this could happen in a country like Japan where gun violence is so rare where it's so difficult to get a weapon. Yeah, it was written Nathan. Japan's gun laws are ultra straight, not just kind of extremely strict. They limit so, so much. The number of guns in circulation, we had estimated number of guns held by civilians in Japan was just about 310,000 in 2019. That's .25 per 100 people and to put that into context in the U.S. it's a 120 per 100 people. So again, Japan has among the G 7 countries the lowest number of guns held by civilians. It's shocking. I mean, that is the word we keep using. The gun though was a handmade gun here. And so that is the detail there. The suspected gunman was male and his 40s, a former JSDF member, so Japan's self defense forces member. And again, Shinzo Abe was carried via ambulance apparently he was reportedly conscious at the time later became unconscious and in cardiac by the time he had arrived at this hospital via helicopter. And we know this happened in the middle of a campaign speech. There's an election coming up in Japan in just a couple of days here. What is Shinzo Abe's death going to mean for that? Yeah, absolutely. That's the question we were asking a few hours ago, but finance minister Suzuki has come out to say that changing any election plans would mean a law for democracy. We do not want to lose to violence and therefore there should be no change in plans for the upcoming upper House elections, which are scheduled for this Sunday just two days away. July 10th. And us residents here in Japan, we've already received the ballots in the mail. So it seems like the plants will go ahead. We did see some candidates though shortly after the news of the shooting that they are going to suspend campaigning for the day. So we did see some LDP members come out to say they are halting their campaign activity for today on social media. So of course, pending the news, they were unsure with the situation was. Now we hear, unfortunately, the death has been confirmed and the elections will go ahead. Only have about a minute or so left here. Unfortunately, kurumi to talk about the legacy that Shinzo Abe leaves behind obviously being the longest serving prime minister of Japan. This has to leave a very deep hole in Japanese politics in Japanese policy. Absolutely Abe made history of the longest serving premier in Japan ever since 1880. He served a total of 8 years and 8 months as the leader of Japan. And he was still very much an icon of the LVP, even after he resigned in 2020 if you'll remember due to health concerns. But again, he is leaving behind a legacy abenomics, for example, when he came to office for the second time in 2012, he launched this unprecedented effort to revive Japan's flagging economy. Of course, he is the foreign policy hawk. He hoped to end apologies for past and purism, reinterpreted the country's pacifist constitution to lose and restrictions on the military and he still managed to stabilize relations, for example, with neighboring China, smooth relations with the U.S. made friendships with president elect Donald Trump in 2016. So Avi, of course, leaving a lasting legacy comes from a political background with his family, and he has survived by his wife. And we heard from Secretary of State Antony Blinken at the G 20 summit in Bali Indonesia, calling former prime minister Shinzo Abe a leader of great vision. We're going to be monitoring the global reaction of course throughout the morning in the days to come. Kurumi mori Bloomberg news correspondent with us live from outside the hospital in Japan where former prime minister Shinzo Abe has died. We will continue keeping you apprised of developments throughout the morning. But in the meantime, we want to turn back to a U.S. economics with the release of the June payrolls report due out just about two hours time, two hours, 5 minutes. Bloomberg economics correspondent Michael McKee is with us now for a look ahead to June jobs. Mike, good morning. I guess we're expecting a slowdown, but maybe not too big a slowdown to conserve the fed. Well, if we get Nathan, the numbers that are expected 268,000 is the latest consensus forecast from economists pulled by Bloomberg. That's going to seem slow compared to where we've been for the first 6 months, 5 months of the year. We've averaged 488,000 jobs a month. But in the two years leading up to the pandemic, it was 184, so it would still be a strong report. The fed's going to be looking at the unemployment rate. They are expecting as interest rates rise the unemployment rate to rise, but it's probably too early for that. And of course, we keep an eye on average hourly earnings because we want to see if there's still wage pressure out there. Yeah, that will certainly play into the fed's decision making. I would have to think as they are very much focused, definitely focused on fighting inflation. They made that clear yesterday two of the biggest hawks, the St. Louis guys, Jim bullard, the president of the St.
