The program starts at 4 30 here on KQED. This is marketplace. I'm kind result. If you have been out in the world of late, you've surely seen all those plastic dividers separating you from other people or other people from your ideas. Like those pictures of people wearing masks, or those six FT markers on the floor of a grocery store. Those places glass barriers have become a clear symbol of this pandemic economy and as such, they are a business opportunity as well. Michael Spur, is the co owner of California Acrylic Design. It is a real small business here in l. A doing those barriers and other stuff, Michael. Welcome to the program like I glad to be here. So back in the before time say, like, last February, Uh, what kind of stuff were you making? Well, we've always made a lot of furniture, art framing industrial covers to cover machines. Display cases. And, of course we we sell a lot of acrylic. That's just cut the size. And then the bottom falls out in in March ish and what happens to your order book? Well it No, we get the stay at home order. We didn't even know if we were allowed to be open after that, So you know, we cut our productions. Three days a week. But wow, within 10 days, the barrage of emails the phone's ringing people needed those screens for counters and desks. Yeah, I imagine there was some desperation. There was, of course, they were always in a hurry. And we have four employees up to five at the most. And then we're just cranking it out as fast as we could do. I have it right that you've got A contract from the T s a out of l A X. I mean, those that's not a small customer. No, it's not. It makes you wonder how they found us. But they're the agents sit behind these podiums and they needed to be covered at the front and two sides of the podium and we ended up making something along the order of G 140 of those things plus covering their break room tables. So that was that was one of the biggest sales we've ever had, I'd say. Kind of funny that this giant government bureaucracy found little low. Y'all, you know? Well, I think we've done a pretty good job of staying on top of our Internet in terms of it being an easy find. Look at that's smart. That's smart. As you sort of got going. Did you have a decent supply chain? Were you able to get the stuff you needed to make what your customers wanted. There was a shortage and it reared its head by the end of April. You would just be hearing from your distributors that there's a weight on that. And of course, the first thing to get knocked out is thesixties oversight sheets. Six ft by eight ft sheets. Yeah, of course. Um, And how long did it last? Where where people were in this panic mode. I mean, you you walk into any place now, and they've all got those sneeze. Guards right, So has demand falling off. Well, it was sky high through perhaps September. Then it did slow down for you know all the way through February. We're starting to see that demand go up again, like dramatically just in the last two weeks as California is gearing up for full reopening. Hmm. You know, honest. Honestly, If you have this conversation with me three weeks ago, I would have said I don't know is this is never coming back. Wow. That's that's a little terrifying it is. You know, we didn't bother with the P P P loan the first time because we were so busy and I guess we figured well that that's for bowling alleys and restaurants and places literally taking a hit, But we had to go for the second time immediately. There was a big slow down to slow down like we hadn't seen for so many consecutive months. Michael Spur. He is one of the co owners of a company right here in Los Angeles.

"Before we bid you view for today. The, uh let's see here. Ginger gerbils back to ginger gurgles because I got it audience. Rachel Levine. That name should sound familiar to you if she was in charge of the health Department up in Pennsylvania. Transgender Dr Rachel Levin. She's was a man. Now she's She looks like Bruce Vilanch. If you know who Bruce Vilanch is. But she has been nominated to be the deputy secretary of how health and human services under Joe Biden, because why not honestly? Dr Rachel. She just checks a box. Rachel Levine checks a box And so, Yeah. Okay. Well, we can appoint a transgender person will be super duper inclusive. The problem is That Rachel Levine oversaw the decimation of the nursing homes in Pennsylvania. 12,000 deaths, half the states total. Came from nursing homes in Pennsylvania as a direct result of the governor up there, Tom Wolfe and Rachel Levin's plan their executive order that insisted that ordered nursing homes. To take in covert positive patients. Now, if that sounds familiar to you, that's because that's exactly what happened in New York. Also exactly what happened in Michigan. It's exactly what happened in New Jersey. The places with the highest death totals particularly concentrated where more than half of their deaths Or roughly half of their deaths are in nursing homes were as a direct result of liberal Democrats. Ordering covert positive patients into nursing homes. There's really no getting around it right now. Andrew Cuomo is being investigated criminally allegedly Because of that, and the attempts to hide his complete and total failure and fumble on this thing, and Joe Biden goes and nominates somebody who did the same thing. In Pennsylvania. What's worse, actually about what Dr Rachel Levin did in Pennsylvania is Dr Rachel Levin's mother lived in a nursing home. As Dr Rachel. Avi, I assume everybody has got a Ph. D s different. It's the Joe Biden Room. Dr. Rachel Levine. As Dr Rachel Levin was signing this executive order and implementing this executive order and reassuring the people of Pennsylvania that there was nothing to fear about this executive order that everybody is going to be safe. Don't worry about it. If you've got a loved one, a nursing home Dr Rachel Levine Woz pulling Dr Rachel Levin's mother out of a nursing home. Have that very same moment. Well, it's like telling everybody that the food is fun that, though don't worry that the food is not poisoned at all. As you're taking your full plate of food of which you haven't had a single bite and scraping it into the garbage and throwing it away and then quickly scrubbing your hands. No, no. Nothing to fear from this food. It's perfectly fun. Why aren't you eating? It will just just shut up. Ginger gerbils was asked about this yesterday, and her answer was rather dismissive. To say the least. Cut seven go ahead. Anyone more actual living in her confirmation is not a lot of opposition from Republicans specifically about the cove in nursing home scandal. She's implicated in Pennsylvania for signing the directive on May 18th while taking her own mother out of the nursing home. There was only 12,000 senior deaths. That's half of the death of a Jackson. Hello, Vania. This is the same scandal that hobo is facing in New York and the governor of Pennsylvania is under investigation. So what is the What is your administration feel that Rachel Levine should get a pass on this and get such a high official position as a healthy human services department? I have to look into more specifics of the detail his here It does not sound it all to me like the Similar that her scenarios similar to the scenario in New York, but we'll follow up with youth with more to offer. I love it. It doesn't sound anything like the situation in New York. Yeah, it's very similar. Except instead of covering up the numbers of dead in New York the way that Cuomo did for his own political gain. Dr Rachel Levine Took Dr Rachel Levin's mother out of a nursing home for their own personal gain. So it's it's different. One was for political gain. The other one was to keep somebody's mother alive. While lying to the public about it. But the last bit of the end was a well I'll look into it. And if we have anything more to say about we're not gonna Not she doesn't care. The White House doesn't care. Joe Biden doesn't care. Rachel Levine saved Rachel Levin's mother. While sentencing 12,000, Pennsylvania senior citizens to death. By forcing them to take in covert positive patients for whom they were not ready or capable of. They're not nursing homes while they can administer, you know, blood clue ghost levels and maybe do some basic Care that you know any sort of staffer could learn to do. They are not trained medical personnel. That was the fatal flaw in these Democrats plans. And so stopping a highly contagious virus that impacts the elderly. In a nursing home scenario was already going to be a tough lift. And they sent them in there. Deliberately callously. Didn't matter. Meanwhile, Dad we'll see what happens with Dr Rachel Levine. Meanwhile, down in Washington, D C. There was a hearing about D C. Statehood. We'll have more to say about this. In the future as this moves forward, But Mayor Muriel Bowser was asked by Congressman Fred Keller of Keller of Pennsylvania. About? Well, you want D C state because they're all waiting. We're not represented with taxation without representation. Then she was asked. Would you want it? Would you like it If we got rid of the taxation, she said no. Which I think is insane. But they also said Fred Keller said, How about we just see you back to Maryland? Now I get it is a Maryland resident. I don't think we need to make the state any bluer. But then again, the state can get really any bluer. Mariel Bowser wants to be governor. She wants to be governor. So she shoots that idea. Down. Cut nine. Go ahead. What D C work to registry back to Maryland. Allowing D C citizens represent representation in both the House and the Senate. When that give them representation. We were not. Residents of Maryland congressman were residents of Washington D. C. Yes, you are a federal district. That is not a state that is explicitly not a state. In the Constitution. You what do you want? You want everything. You can't have it. It's that simple. Seated back to Maryland. That's where it came from Washington's property George Washington's property. He donated it to create the capital city, the federal city that was never ever intended to be a state. It should never, ever be allowed to be a state. It's not a prison if you demand representation. Move, period. But then I'm heartless withheld. Oh, I know that's all the time we have for today. Thank you for listening. I'll see you tomorrow..

"Dancing man did it. Diamonds, See me back? We have not finished up our block thing yet getting through that now, Um Okay, baby is racist already did that. Oh, good news. Angry, partisan hack Neera Tanden is no longer being considered for the Office of Management and Budget. She pulled her name out of contention yesterday, and the White House announced today that they would accept that recent recent. What is that a recision re Resignation. Yeah, but it isn't a resignation for a nomination. You bring? What is it? What? He was told to resign. She was told to resign. But she didn't resign because she didn't have the job yet. What is it called? When you take back your name from consideration? Resend. That's what I thought. Recent. You rescind your name present? Yeah. Okay? I don't know. It doesn't feel right. It feels weird. It's just It's like when you write a word, and then you go is the hell that smelt. Um, I sure about that and you end up looking it up here. I guess it just looks weird. Right now she's out. She is a huge partisan hack. I mean, you know, here's the thing the whoever is president. Should get to decide who they want in their Cabinet. I That's just the way it is, however. The Office of Management Budget is our office office back budget and management. It's O P. M O M. B. Whichever there's management budget in the name. It's all there. That is definitely a place where you need to not have a partisan hack. I'm sorry. You need to have somebody that can look and look at the other side and their needs, especially in the Senate is closely divided as the Senate we have now and Neera Tanden is not that person. Now Republicans are setting their sights on Xavier McAra, who is horrible. In terms of his ideology, and they wanted to put him in charge of health and human services. This is the guy who spearheaded the lawsuit against nuns. Because the nuns Didn't want to offer birth control in their health insurance package. And he sued them. So, yeah, he can go pound sand, so Republicans, I don't expect him to get through either. That's not all about him. But yeah, I don't expect him to get through either. So that's and then I'd be. I don't know about Dr Rachel Levine. The transgender woman who refused to answer questions about whether she believed that the government should be able to intervene between parents and their Children. And allow Children to have mutilating surgery before they're old enough to make that decision without the parent's permission, and she would not answer that question. For me, that's a full disqualifier. Full disqualifier. If you're not going to tell me that you're not going to interfere between parents and Children. I have no interest in you. But I don't know what's gonna happen to her. We'll see. I think they're choosing their battles, and she would just be assistant director of health and human or something. I don't know. She's got protection of being LGBT. Well, Neera Tanden should have had protection too, for being a minority and savior Bacara should. But they're so beyond the pale that Republicans were just saying, No, we're not gonna do that. We're not several have already said they're not gonna vote for Bacara. Just not going to do it. So we'll see what happens there. Did you guys know that the National Guard is still at the Capitol building in D? C. Did you know this? I did not know this. And as hard as I looked, I could not see a valid reason for this still to be happening. Capitol Police are like, Well, you know, we were well, We've had some threats. And, you know, we just know the real reason is everybody wants to be reminded that Trump supporters stormed the capital on January 6. They don't want that imagery to go away. Yes, ran. I was just going to say I was writing a story about that this morning, and there was some QA non theory that Trump is going to become president. March 4th. I don't know if they're waiting that out till after tomorrow afternoon, I will say this And if you are a listener of this show, and you believe That Donald Trump is going to ascend to the presidency tomorrow because anonymous person on the Internet that you don't know and have no way of knowing who they are..

"Like our good friend. Good friend of the program alexandria. Ocasio cortez threatened to bolt on the covid. Nineteen relief bill if it does not include a hike in the minimum wage said that They're going to abandon it if they do not Pass through with reconciliation and the fifteen dollar minimum wage attached and She's taking a stand against it she. It's a small technicality. But i do think we've got every tool in our toolbox here Whether it is reconciliation whether it is ultimately reforming the filibuster. We're going to need to deliver on our promise to raise the wage for twenty seven million americans. It's i mean it's good but that the democrats aren't playing games aren't playing political games with you. Know americans paychecks. No that's definitely not i mean. Look she she of course does really want this but she will also follow line if she is needed for a bill. That's going to spend one point nine trillion dollars on other various wishlist items for for democrats the fifteen dollars minimum wage. I don't even think honestly can be done this way. I think it makes sense. I mean we haven't had a matter now. I don't know. There's the senate parliamentarian who's going to give this ruling we have. I don't think it's come down. He had had If it came down today. I missed it. But they're going to say. Hey yes you can put. A minimum wage will through reconciliation. I don't think that is within the rules. Now you're right. They could change the rules and they can say well. You know what now you can. They just have to get the votes. They need man should cinema but again when when needed all of these guys will come around. All of them will come around when needed now. I think there's a chance that like something where you know. Joe mansion might say i'll only gonna do twelve fifty an hour like he'll get you. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like romney and someone else wanted to ten dollars an hour. They want to do ten. I think it was seven twenty five now so they raise it up to ten. I mean look. There's overwhelming support in the population for these bills to raise the minimum wage. It's not it's not a close it's among the least popular thing the Three belief. I tell you if you want to say about like two eight and nine dollars. You're talking in the eighties and ninety percent type of approval over these things. It's like a conservative libertarian. Economic point that we are one hundred percent right on but no one agrees with so you did they. They're going to get that through. They can get that through during another bill. Fifteen bucks those really stretching. And i don't think so because i heard a report. What was it yesterday or the day before That we talked about on the program that joe biden had even said the minimum wage deal is dead so you think he just meant if it's fifteen dollars. I think the fifteen dollar thing is such a stretch. And i think they know it's a stretch. I think it's the type of thing they know they're lose. I don't think they can do it the way they're trying to do it. So because the fifty votes think is very specific with the types of rules. They can again change the rules. They can go after and get rid of the filibuster. There are things that they can do. But they're extreme. And i wouldn't put it past democrats to put them through fashion but it's a it's a pretty big step now if they jam in a twelve dollar minimum wage into a bill that they they wanna pass later on. That's very popular like military support. Bill right like that's the type of way. I think they could get something like that done. I don't think rule wise they can get it done this way and i think you probably will cinema and mansion saying look we said we don't support fifteen dollars an hour that's why we only supporting fourteen eighty five. That's the type of thing or it'd be phased in over a longer period though. They'll play their games. But i think you know when it comes down to the democrats will get their fifty votes for this thing and and joe biden knows that everybody knows it. So why would they bend. Why would they bench to romney's ten dollar plan or twelve dollar plan. They don't need to. I just don't think they can do it. This way and pat. I'm going the other. Russian fifteen is good was and fifty dollars an hour. Better not one hundred one really rich. Yes yeah why. Not a million dollars an hour. Let's just make everybody millionaires every hour. Mckee three right. She said like like twenty seven million. This would support all three every thirty million sports. Everybody yeah really really wanted. Why don't kiss right. They should give it to me that they can then afford their sex change operation right which they should get for yes. I thought chris chris hayes tweet out something along the lines of well there's there's absolutely no compelling substantive argument against raising the minimum wage with it doesn't mean that there's no scientific arguments substantive argument against it. It's going to hurt small businesses dramatically and not to mention. It's going to hurt the minorities and the poorest of the people that they that. They claim that they want to help. They're gonna force out of a job and look. The minimum wage is just that it's a minimum wage. For when you're just getting into the workforce that's what it's designed for. It's not designed to support a family of twelve. I mean nobody says you know what. I'm gonna retire on that twelve dollars an hour retire and then i'm gonna make up whenever retiring all probably only make ten dollars an hour but i'm going to retire on this. That's not what it's four and it's for teenagers. who have no skills. Who are working at mcdonald's. Get into the workforce and you make a minimum wage just to get you into the workforce and understand how it all flows out. Works gets a few dollars in your pocket so you can put gas in your car and go crews the drag or whatever these wacky kids do these days that's that's what the cruise drag drag and so but it's been completely flipped around supposed to support a family of or ten because what because they get to use the term livable wage and make not supposed to be a liveable way. We'll we'll what does livable wage even mean. Can someone please define it for me. what is livable wage. Because something that someone can live on in. New york is a lot different than something. Someone who on even in our new york teams not a luke. Labeling like okay. Is this living with a roommate. Is this living without having children before you're ready. Is this living without a really nice car and taking the bus. I mean there are a lot of things in here nuances in here that we're not even discussing because you think you have a right to say i just need a livable wage. So you have to pay whatever the hell i want. It's one of those dumb things they make up. That can mean anything right. I mean we all know one hundred percent of people making minimum wage are living they somehow made it livable. They may not like that light supposed to chip in a way. You you you earn money early on get experienced build your career as a soul. I believe it was said you know the the actual minimum wage is zero when when the minimum wage gets raised. Fifteen dollars. those people get zero dollars per hour and they stay at home and they're on twitch all day right like so. What do you do with that. I mean like if you want a society that is dependent on government for their entire lives of group of young people who grow up with no no ability to learn a trade to actually have a work ethic and build that work ethic. Then you're a democrat and you want this to go on right you know. We know it will cost millions of jobs. It may help some people in certain circumstances but the amount of people who are trying..

What if someone has a toy and takes it to a different aisle and leaves it there we interest but then does the store then have to pay that fine. I mean how is this even police. Who's enforcing this. And this is all being taught in our schools to our kids. You know you mentioned the we. Were about rachel levine and the whole transgender thing. This is all being taught in the schools. Kids can go and get this stuff done. And i will say this just to expand on on on all of our previous conversations. Many over many of these years. I keep coming back to this. It's like we sit here. And we had these conversations about how inane this is and how poisonous it is a so much of it and the fact that is being talked directly to our kids at school and then we will go on the next break say opened up the schools. And it's like well. Maybe we should keep a close. The schools closed it was against a private school or any other place. Maybe under a bridge to be taught by lie homeless vagrants instead of these people. Because what they're doing is really dramatic less wimmer. Yes i i understand taking my tax money. Open up the dam schools. Yeah oh totally i mean. Look they should be open. It's a separate argument. But i think that yes. I agree conservatives. I think are missing a great opportunity here with these schools being closed and with people being so frustrated about them being close to say. Hey there are better options because not only. Are you pissed off at your schools. Not open and your kids are with you because they have to stay home and have nowhere to go but in addition to that when they go to the school they're going to teach them poison.

"rachel levine" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters
"Allow a gender dysphoric child to begin taking or pursue sex-change therapy. Now this comes because as we know. Dr rachel levine. Who is from pennsylvania. who is of course a transgender woman so a biological man is the nominee and in the past. She's even tweeted about it. If you go to her social media She has a tweet in which she expresses support for puberty blockers for children. Young children being able to change their gender And not just like hey. I think i am a girl or boy but taking these medications In order to do so so rand. Paul went back and forth with the doctor did not get a straight answer from her and but kept going in this club. Watch for most of our history. We believe that minors don't have full rights. The parents need to be involved. So i'm alarmed that you won't say with certainty that minors should not have the ability to make the decision to take hormones. it will affect them for the rest of their life. Will you make a more firm decision on whether or not minor should be involved. In these decisions senator. Transgender medicine is a very complex in nuance field. And if confirmed to the position of assistant secretary of health. I was certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care and the complexity of this field. Let it go into the record that the witness refused to answer the question. The question is a very specific one. Should minors be making these momentous decisions. For most of the history of medicine we wouldn't let you have cut sewn up in the er but you're willing to let a minor take things that prevent their puberty and you think they get that back you give a woman testosterone enough that she grows a beard. You think she's going to go back looking like a woman. When you stop the testosterone you have permanently changed them. Infertility is another problem. None of these drugs have been approved for this. They're all being used off label. I find it ironic that the left that went nuts over hydroxy corcoran being used. Possibly for covid are not alarm that these hormones are being used off label. There's no long term studies. We don't know what happens to them. We do know that there are dozens and dozens of people vinter. This who regret this happened in a permanent change happened to them. And you know if you've ever been around children fourteen year old can't make this decision in the genesis for your clinic. In england ten percent of the kids are between the ages. Three and ten. We should be outraged. That someone's talking to a three year old about changing their sex senator So a tense. Moment between senator rand. Paul and dr. Rachel levine beautiful. You ever seen a more beautiful woman an incredibly beautiful once alabama because her arms okay the arms but in general the mo the perfect woman would-be. Rachel levine with michelle obama's. I think we could agree on that. So i mean it's uncomfortable to watch and it's like all right but i mean this is one of joe biden's nominees for a pretty important position i get. It's assistant secretary but if we have people in charge of the department of health and human services who think that three year olds should be able to consent to sex changes. That's a big deal. Knowledge that the only reason this person has this job. Because of the the their transgendered and they wanted to set this new. I step on transgender rights. Or whatever there's no reason to say in fact we've seen terrible handling of health issues in pennsylvania throughout the last year. you can. I just say this is the same person who enacted the same policies similar to andrew cuomo and removed her own mother from the nursing home so that her mother wouldn't be affected. I mean this is a bad nominee no matter what they look like or no matter what they're saying in this particular hearing when you go to this point. It's there's something that like we do when we argue points where we take the most extreme crazy thing to set a sort of like baseline of the argument and for years and years and years. I mean there was always a back and forth from the left and the right about gay rights and gay marriage and transgender rights. Or whatever but you should be able to say look. A three-year-old is the the most extreme example. He us should not be making the decision about changing their gender. Which by the way you can actually do. You can have surgeries and take hormones to simulate change of gender but you can't actually changed under gender but there's this idea that like a three year old can make a decision like this when we all know a three year old literally make any decision on their own. I mean there's not that's not what they do are three ten year. Old is the same thing i mean. I have a nine year old and like he's not like he would be capable of making a decision like this that would alter entire life. That's what parents are for. So you know it is. It's a remarkable that this you know. Rachel levine will probably sail through with every democratic vote because of her identity the the fact that she won't answer he won't answer. Whatever will not answer this very simple question like come up right kids we're talking about. I understand they're all this other stuff. We're talking about kids. Should they be making their their decision without parental notice. We're like so far down the extreme thing and they won't even say that it's like when you ask a liberal like what about abortion one second before birth and they won't say no. Yeah right well because this is a. This is a a position that you hold to be morally superior. Why not say it at. I have kids at every h up to thirty eight years. I wouldn't allow my thirty eight year old to make that decision no capable capable of making then it'd be like no. You can't make that decision and help out status okay. Well i mean it. It's kind of what not at thirty eight but it's kind of what parents are designed to do stupid pointed out. There's a reason why we are the ones who are in charge of our children's lives until they are at least eighteen. It's the most absurd thing. Maybe that i've ever heard because we all know the as stu said you. They're they're incapable of that. They're incapable when they're teenagers of making decisions like that. They really are. I mean there are there but stupid until they're like twenty five years old and even then even then it's a little iffy. Yeah even then. They shouldn't vote till they're thirty. Five be president. You can't vote for president right right. That's just ridiculous. Now look. I mean this goes on. The back of police came out yesterday which talked about The breakouts of of you know how many people are gay. How many people are lesbian. How many people are bisexual transgendered and it did it say how many people are spirit did not. They didn't even ask that what jimmy was how. I thought it was hateful very offended. There's no plus q it was just. That's it was really bad. They lost both cues on. I'll so anyway the poll. I don't have it in front in front of intersex. They had of now. Why it didn't have that either. They did have pan sexual. They asked how many people but it was printed out the poll and it was on the outside of the paper. I don't know what the result was is. It was like eighty percent or pan sexual. But i don't know it was outside of paper. I printed it landscape on on on the trip by mistake. Which is a problem. it's my it's michael naipaul really. Is the pants actual folks who happened to be tuning it he apologizes. I apologize for everything. I've ever said patent including the about to say which is they found. The poll found that of all this. Zoom zoom are generation z. Whatever they're calling zuma's which is just awful they. They found that eleven point. Eight percent of them were bisexual. Levin point eight percents. there's one point. Eight percent was Was transgendered it was like one point. Six percent were lesbian. Two percent more gay so now. We're up to to believe right. Now that there are more transgendered people in this upcoming group then there than there are certainly bisexual but even lesbians like there's just disappearing apparently and when you look through the the age ranges what you see is per for bisexual. It's like eleven percent of generation z. And it's slowly steps down the percentage until you get to older people and it's like two percent of older people and it's like well if you're gonna go by the sort of lady gaga thesis here that everyone's born this way. Why are those percentages so different. I think there is a fair argument to say that..

"The border wall construction. Okay first of all that was like top like that's purely symbolic of course right because the reality is having a border wall kind of a good thing but he's like you stop that right now we have spent trillions of dollars on redistributive purposes. Can't be spending money on like a wall to stop people from coming across the border illegally. Stop that right now. Now that had not been trump's top priority. Would he be doing that. Of course not. He's going to quote end. The muslim travel ban. There is no muslim travel ban. It does not exist. There's a travel ban against a variety of countries which includes some muslim countries and some non muslim countries. Okay he's going to rejoin the paris. Climate agreement woohoo that paris climate agreement which achieves nothing zero things does achieve. It is a completely symbolic act. That is designed in order to cudgel political opponents into silence. That is what the paris climate accord does the vast majority of countries that have signed on the paris. Climate accord are not even attempting to meet their quotas. The united states has no plan in order to achieve. What joe biden wants it to achieve an even if the united states were to meet its quotas. Under the paris climate accord's it would not lower the global temperature over the course of the next century. More than a minute degree. These are all well established realities. What joining the paris climate accord's good stuff guys. Also we're going to end the houston. Xl pipeline and revoke oil and gas development and national wildlife monument. So that's good news we're gonna make ourselves more dependence on foreign oil again. So that's that's excellent. Also we're gonna count you non-citizens in the us census his a. One of the things that trump had pushed was we're not gonna count illegal immigrants in the us census because we use the us census for apportionment purposes and we should not apportion congressional seats based on how many people who literally should not be in the country are in particular areas and buy up. You know what i know. All those people live and they tend to live in blue areas and we need more. Congressional seats appointed a portion for those particular areas or rejoining the. Who that's being so we left the who because the who is a crap sandwich of an organization. That basically is a propaganda outlet for the chinese. But we're rejoining it because trump left it that's literally the only reason rejoin it also. He's starting to one hundred days masking challenge. Do we get those physical fitness badges like. I remember when i was in elementary school. And if you basically didn't kill over in fourth grade then. They gave you like a presidential physical fitness award. It was super exciting and went directly in the garbage. Because i meant nothing. So we're gonna have the one hundred day masking challenge because you know what people aren't asking except for you know the eighty plus percentage of people who say they're masking in the united states so yep That'll be good. He's going to push pause on student. Loan payments until september thirtieth his going to defend the dreamers program for undocumented young americans. He's going to continue to do the unconstitutional thing of just declining to prosecute people as he ought under the law. He's going to change at trump's arrest priorities for immigration and customs enforcement. He is going to restructure. The federal government coordination's the covid nineteen pandemic. But just explain how and here we go. This is the best part you ready. Actions to advance racial equity through the federal government. So welcome back to critical race theory gang because remember trump said no critical race theory in the federal government. We're not gonna do any of those things and by. We're putting all that back in so you get to learn about how whiteness dominates america's systems of power and how you are responsible you are white person and it doesn't matter if you're black person who agreed in any element with trump. This means that you're also white. You're multi racial white person. Very exciting stuff. He's going to revoke. Trump's corn harmful seventeen seventy six commission. So instead he's just gonna reflect these sixteen nineteen bullcrap promoted by the new york times. America's evil america's terrible all. This is in the healing guys. Do you feel the healing. Can you feel the warmth. Can you feel it so much healing happening. Right now. he's going to strengthen workplace discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity which effectively means that the federal government is now going to be telling you that if you are a waiter at a if you are a waitress at and you decide that you're man tomorrow you should remain a waitress at the hooters. So that's that's exciting stuff also when we are going to be freezing all last minute. Trump administration and regulatory actions and they're gonna formulate executive branch ethics doctrines because that's always Usually went when members of the government including the trump administration formulate ethics doctrines. They then follow through with done by completely ignoring them. So all of this is exciting stuff among the people who biden will be appointing also some of the best and the brightest so for example. Joe biden has now selected as assistant health secretary. Rachel levine the only important thing about this human beings that this person is transgender. That's according to the washington post headline. This is true. Here's the washington post headline now. You might think to yourself as assistant health secretary. Wouldn't you want like the accomplishment in the title like what this person due to become assistant health secretary. Here's the title biden. Select transgender dr. Rachel levine as assistant health secretary. Well i mean. I know that when i go to the doctor. The first thing i need is a person who believes that. Remember the wrong sex..

"So joe biden's reported nominee for this very important post in the doj holds a ton of extremely racist ugly views similar us being held. Apparently by joe biden's choice for deputy educa- education secretary so joe biden announced that he wanted to pick The san diego unified school district. Superintendent cindy martin for deputy secretary of education deputy secretary of education. What what does the education department even do. I guess not all they don't. They're not empowered to do all that much by law or there's obviously doesn't appear anywhere in the constitution but they do have quite a lot of power to craft the direction of curriculum the united states. One way they do. This is through things like dear colleague. Letters look basically strong recommendations from the federal government that you know if you wanna keep getting your money if you wanna keep getting all these goodies from the federal government. You have to do what we want you to do. On various sort of social engineering policies of the famous dear colleague letter from the obama administration had to do with transgender ideology will hear this person who biden wants for deputy education secretary l. holds very racist views. She's a white lady but she holds these very sort of What do you call it. i guess black racialist views the same kinds of things that we have just been talking about so she believes that schools quote spirit murder black children and wh- white teachers should should undergo quote anti-racist therapy anti-racist therapy so you've got now the announced biden pick for deputy education secretary calling for the reprogramming only of white teachers who are not anti-racist enough meaning a they could be not racist but that's not enough you've got to be antiracist meaning you've got to be racist and the teachers are are not Focused enough on how terrible the scourge of white supremacy as an schools quote spirit murder black children river that means and so they've got to go to reeducation camps that's not even just being reported that has been announced moving over to the department of health and human services. I've got to be very careful with this one. Because i think we could all be censored for this and there were major calls right now for conservatives to be censored so i'm just going to present the facts. Okay and you tell me something. Seems a little strange. Joe biden has selected the pennsylvania health secretary. Dr rachel levine. To be assistant secretary of health and human services. Dr rachel levine that That was not his given name when he was born. A dr. rachel. Levine is a man who thinks that he's a woman He's being nominated to be the assistant secretary of health and human services a man who is under the impression that he is a woman in some deep metaphysical way that his true identity is a woman even though all of the characteristics that he has our man manly masculine He is now to be the assistant secretary of health and human services. Does that seem a little strange to you. That seems a little strange to me. I know i don't want to step out of line. I don't want to Seems a little strange doesn't it but it doesn't but it doesn't. It only seems strange to people with even a modicum of common sense left because we are back into the normal scope of this liberal political regime and the normal kinds of politics that we see here. That's normal compared to objective standards. That's not normal compared to historical norms back decades and decades but it is normal today and what is also about to be normal. I mean i've. I'm joking a little bit as i'm tiptoeing around this issue. What strange about this that. A man and address who believes himself to be a woman is assistant health secretary. I'm sort of joking. I tiptoe around it but there's a lot of truth to it. Which is that. We are now at a place. Where if you come out and say a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man and a man can't magically become a woman by wishing it so and putting address on you will face professional consequences for it. You will face social consequences for it. You can currently be kicked off of social media. If you do it in a specific way which i hope my elaborate choreography here has allowed me to walk around but you you cannot say that you feel as though you're the last sane person on earth when you scream to the wind and say a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man and there's actually such a thing as sexual difference but that that's over because now we're headed back into the biden administration. Which is it's the same thing as the obama administration which is just kind of the same thing as the establishment left by the way what you're going to hear specifically with regard to rachel levine's appointment you're going to hear that. Oh no this has nothing to do with him being a transgender person. This is just because he's so qualified and he's just the best pick for the job. I don't think that that is likely to be true. Here's why there is a quote from robin gonzalez. The victory institute which i suppose. Lgbtq sort of lobby says quote. I think there is a value and giving visibility to doctors like doctor levin who are kind of unique in their field. Not just because of their demographics and who they are but also because of their expertise. We also know that when people know. Lgbtq people it makes them more open to supporting our equality so he. He made three arguments here. He made three three reasons as to. Why rachel levine. Should get this job. It's good to give visibility to doctors like levin visibility. What does that mean means Because he's a man who thinks he's a woman not just because of their demographics but also because of their expertise. Okay so he's saying it's not just because he's transgender. It's because he.

"So make sure you check that out. I am so excited to welcome our next guest. Our favorite crossover king. It's Howie Carr. Thank you for joining us, Howie Hey, thanks for having me Grace. So how he had of all the stories that you've been reading today, Which one sticks out to you the most you go, and then I'll go. Well. I put it in my column that I just finished writing the sound cut from Hillary Clinton that you played earlier in the day and my my whole point was, you know, we already had operation works speed. We need a new medical mobilization here and they call this one operation warped. To do something about Trump Derangement syndrome. Shouldn't it be dying down? And instead, it's flaring up as bad as it's ever been. I know I know that's a great point. I don't think it helps that she's with the Queen of TDs. Nancy Pelosi, but I agree. I thought, if anything, they could rein it back and celebrate. This new presidency and be so excited about the unity in the decency that's being ushered in. But you're right. It's like they're crazier than ever before. And and, you know, again, it's it's projection all once again. We've been talking about it for four years. She's the one whose husband got the 500,000 to speak to the Russian banks. She's the one who's Clinton Foundation got millions of dollars from all these Russian affiliated groups after she gave him the uranium from the Wyoming minds, and she's accusing Trump of being a Russian asset. If she crazy. So what's your number? One story Mine was going to be Joe Biden's recently tapped Pick Who? Rachel Levine. From Pennsylvania. I mean, this. The headlines are all about how Joe Biden's picking a transgender person, but the real headline should be this woman. Took her own mother out of the nursing homes. Because she knew how poorly they were being run and that people were being sent back in who had Cove. It. Yeah, I know. Yeah. Richard, formerly known as Richard Levin, now known as Rachel. Levin and and how it just started to make me think about all of the people that Biden's chosen So far I started going over a list. It was like, Oh, who's Who of Hacker Gramma, John Kerry, Marcia Fudge. Everyone yelling. Judy was just made seven million bucks in the last two years, making speeches We were gonna have on Cassie Smith deal. She's the new executive director of America Rising, She's going to go over all of these hacks. I mean, Anthony Blinken is another one. But how does the secretary of state nominee a complete deep swamp creature? Janet Yellen. She made a lot of money giving speeches, right? Yes. Who? Who said that famous line at a certain point Having you made enough money? Yeah, He said that about a half a billion dollars ago. But how he just to get back to the Hillary Clinton comment cause I do think you're right about that. It's from her podcast. Who listens to that podcast. That's a real mystery to me, but I think what you're seeing, and I'm gonna make a comparison here because I've had this show now for about three weeks. I think everyone for joining us. But it is hard sometimes when you can't revert back to something, and I think that's for them is Donald Trump. He's been their security blanket for the last four years. Any time that they're in a jam, they can say they can shift to Donald Trump. And for the last couple years how if I do my new segment, I can always shift to you. I know that you're gonna be able to carry the segment if I don't know what I'm talking about. So when they don't have something to say, or if they if they don't believe in their ideas their go to is back to trump. And that's what just texted me. Something is still to grace that's from the daily caller Headlining Governor Cuomo threatens lawsuit against Biden Administration of Covert 19 Relief fund, So I guess we know what the pivot Is going to me. Oh, no. Yeah, it is. Isn't it terrible when they turn on one another such honorable patriotic men Speaking of Ah, Cuomo, Howie, I'm guessing you heard some of the cuts we played of Chris Cuomo. He's now preaching for Nonviolence. And he thinks we all need to rise above their hate. How about the Washington Post Today they talked, they said there's a great apprehension in the country about the future of the iconic monuments Buildings in D. C. They were practically cheering on the mob in Lafayette Square when they were trying that when they were throwing a noose around the Andrew Jackson's head. Remember that the statue they they didn't care when they tried to burn down the ST John's Church. Well, the president's went now now that now now that Biden is gonna be the president, these air, iconic monuments and buildings, these buildings can go from racist, too sacred really fast, depending on who's in charge. Yeah, It's kind of like ice cream. You know, Donald Trump was a war criminal for taking two scoops ice cream. Now, now, Joe Biden melts our hearts with his ice cream. It's so true and the hypocrisy of the left right now, Howie. I said this earlier, but every day I wake up and I think who's gonna win the competition today? For the least amount of self awareness. Is it gonna be Politicians. Or is it going to be the media and I have to say the media usually takes the cake nine out of 10 times, whether it's Don lemon or Chris Cuomo or Wolf Blitzer or Jake Tapper talking about the big lie.

Yummy, yummy. Good for the tummy. We've been talking about. Cabinet picks from Joe Biden in Is his assistant secretary of health and human services. Dr Rachel Levine. Dr Rachel Venus, transgender. Dr Levin is man. Just so we're clear. It was transgender and uses female pronouns. Now you could say to me, Okay, That's a real problem for HHS Secretary Deputy Secretary Feel free. You have have that opinion if you will. But let's make sure we deal with our issues as we deal with them. The problem with the doctor Is that the doctor? Who is just as responsible as people of governor, Andrew Cuomo for nursing home patients deaths. For example, state Senator Doug Master Yano. Called for Levin's resignation on May 11th. Because Levin's policy of sending elderly patients back to nursing homes at receiving treatment was seen as insane, just like they did in New York because of Governor Cuomo and they were told that they have to comply. They'll be find if they don't comply. Please. Governor Cuomo. Let us send them to the Jacob Javits Field Hospital instead of coming back to the nursing home. Nope. Let us put them on the HSS. The the Naval ship Comfort the U. S naval ship, not HSS. That's Sorry. We're not British. The U. S naval ship comfort. So they can get care for their and not be in the nursing home. Nope. 1000 people died in nursing homes. Janice Dean is right and Andrew Cuomo and his team are terrible. These are the facts cannot be changed. So, Levin said, a send them back to the nursing homes and like you're nuts. You're crazy. Meanwhile, Levin pulled her own mother. His own mother. Levin pulled his own mother. Out of a nursing home. No, no, everybody else they gotta stay in the nursing. Remember nothing. I go back to the nursing home. My mom, I got this. And that's disqualifying. And that's how you know Joe Biden doesn't really have it all together. Joe Biden's just desperate as somebody's transgender to show how low key is. It's amazing Transgender or not. If you're on this progressive side, you really believe you're above the law. Other people die in the nursing homes. But you protected. Your mom is what matters Most. Dr Levine should not be anywhere near health and human services. Because if you're willing to lead, let other people die. What do you know about servicing humans? This brings us to Johnny Manziel. In one of the weirder stranger. I don't get it stories that are out there. The story goes, if you don't who Johnny Manzella is Johnny Manziel's former quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, and Diamonds. L one, eh? Heisman Trophy and Johnny Manziel got to the NFL and thought he was a big deal and you know, full of full of ego and he was a disaster. It was a disaster because Couldn't get out of his own way. He thought he was too good. He thought he was too especially thought he was too important. Johnny Manziel's out of the NFL that he goes to Canadian Football League. It doesn't work. He, uh, ends up in not the XFL, one of those kinds of leagues Canadian Football League Now he was in the Canadian Football League that didn't work the land he was in the American Alliance of Football. Something like that are the XFL. Whichever one. It was they both folded. Right. Bad timing with Corona virus and all. And he can play there and he's now in some fan driven league. You realize he was drafted in 2014. He's only six years out, he could still find a way to play in the NFL. And I thought that he was working towards a level of reclamation project when he recognized that he really ruined the last years of the career of Joe Thomas. Joe Thomas is a guy who was on the offensive line. Who's most probably gonna go the Hall of Fame. Spent his whole career as a Cleveland Brown. No, no winning, no winning None zero winning. I mean, he's one games, but no no winning seasons. Let me just Bad time to be a Cleveland Brown. And China and sell noted, and I read this in 2020 that he, uh He really did waste the career of Joe Thomas. Not being serious about the game of football. He really did waste the career. I said, OK, that's a guy who has some Recognition of not doing it right. And maybe there's ah Maybe there's a future. Maybe there's a future for that guy. I like reclamation projects. What can I say? End, sir. The Cleveland Browns against the Kansas City Chiefs. Where the Chiefs win 20 to 17 and Patrick Holmes got knocked out of the game. Enter. It was a Chad Henny. And, uh, actually does have pretty admirable job. Don't even think the interception. Actually, I didn't watch the gangs. I haven't watching games. I watched some of the video. But then when I was going through the story, I don't even think the interception was his fault. Show some grit. Yeah, I think somebody ran a wrong router got tripped up. That's what I take it. That's beside the point anyway. Right? The Browns lose. So, Johnny Man sell tweets out. This this gift of Stephen A. Smith from ESPN, sipping on a smoothie.

Senate. Pediatrician and former Pennsylvania physician, General Levine Or perhaps, Levin? I don't know. Was appointed to her current post by Democrat governor, Democratic Governor Tom Wolfe in 2017, making her one of the few transgender people serving in elected or appointed positions nationwide. She won. She won past confirmation by the Republican majority Pennsylvania Senate. So that's interesting Aunt has emerged as the public face of the state's response to the Corona virus pandemic. Dr Levine will bring steady leadership and essential expertise that we need to get people. Through the pandemic, no matter what their zip code, their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, identity or disability and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond, President elect, Biden said in the state. I feel like he's being really thoughtful about all of his picks. I think he's really trying to Is diverse is possible and at the same time getting people that are the most qualified for the job because this doctor said I was reading a little bit about her extremely accomplished and respected and Look if he's being so conscientious about making sure that a lot of people are representative, where are there any Maga people in there? Any maggot people it is, huh? Oh, believe me, there are maggot people. Everywhere, like termites throughout the various organizations is not going to. He's not going to consciously appoint any maggot people to his administration. Brett Tolman, the former U. S attorney for Utah. Is making headlines by making big bucks lobbying the White House for pardons for his clients, huh? He's made news before. Uh, now he was the U. S attorney for Utah. He was an advocate for women who are victims of violent crimes. He was a crusader for reforming the legal system. More recently, however, Tolman has been advising the Trump Administration on pardons and commutations. And, according to The New York Times, he's been collecting tens of thousands of dollars and possibly more lobbying for clemency for the son of a former Arkansas senator, the founder of a notorious online drug marketplace, Silk Road and also a New York City socialite. Pleaded guilty in a fraud scheme. So he has been making the case for those three different people and others to the Trump Administration for clemency or pardons and and these people are paying him. A good chunk of change to make those Pleased to the Trump administration. I'll Brett, I'm not going to tell you how to make a living, or how not to make a living. Just know that the stain will go with you. That's think is going to stay on. You don't come off in a tomato, wash. Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate will happen. Let's get on with it. What does Mitch McConnell say about the whole thing? He says, Listen, uh When we have this trial in the Senate What You know, it's a vertical. It'll be a little conscience. That's why I will be more. Yeah, I hope so. Because I hope that's exactly what it is. I hope you examine your conscience. Senators. Really? And if you vote guilty if you are Republican who votes guilty It's it will also say. You know, I've been wrong this whole time or it will say I knew I was wrong this whole time, and I didn't care. Yeah. So There you go.

'There's No Quick Fix For COVID-19,' Cautions Pennsylvania Secretary Of Health
"Going to talk more now about how states are preparing to distribute those vaccines as they become available, and to do that, we're joined by Dr Rachel Levine. She is the Pennsylvania health secretary and also president of the Association of State Health Officials. Dr Levine welcome 12 Things considered. Thank you very much. I'm very pleased to be here. Will you walk us through the logistics for when Pennsylvania first receives its initial shipments of vaccines? I mean, where does it go? How do you keep it cold? What do you actually have to do? Sure. So we're all waiting the meeting of the FDA on December 10th. And then they will consider all of the data of submitted by the Fizer Corporation for the first vaccine. When they issue their emergency use authorization or you away, then operation Warp speed will distribute the vaccine. To hospitals in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation just to get specific is the federal government or or fives or corporation, sending it to the state of Pennsylvania to distribute it to hospitals. I I asked, because this vaccine has to be kept incredibly cold. It's not just like you can send a bottle of aspirin, right? So you are correct. This is an ultra cold chain vaccine that has to be kept at minus 80 C or or Celsius. So it will be operation works speed that will be sending it to the hospitals that we designate now will depend, of course about how much we're going to get, and it comes in trays of 975 bottles. So these have to be hospitals that can Deal with the cold chain and can deal with that amount of vaccine to then administer. Now, the CDC recommends that health care workers and residents of long term care facilities should get first access to these vaccines. That's a large number of people have you decided whether you're going to start With older healthcare workers or people with underlying conditions are only doctors and nurses who see covert patients. I mean, how are you going to prioritize within the priority groups? Sure. So we're going to be developing a decision tree for hospitals to use and we'll be finishing that this week. I want to point out that the distribution for the nursing home and other long term kitchen facilities Goes in a different way. So operation works speed working with Walgreens and CVS will be receiving the vaccine with those two pharmaceutical companies, and then they will be working to administer the vaccine in nursing homes and other long term care facilities. Do you have a sense of how many doses The first shipment is likely to include and how that compares to the number of people in this top priority. First group, so we don't exactly know how many doses we're going to get in the first shipment. So you know, we had lots of discussions with Operation Warp speed, you know, will be looking to attack the end of next week or certainly when they're going to be sent out to know exactly how many doses we're going to get in the first week. And then the expectation our weekly shipments to the hospitals and to Walgreens and CVS for those distributions. I gotta ask a lot of depending here on the ability of operation Warp speed to carry this out effectively And with Corona virus testing, the federal government kind of fell down. I mean, There weren't enough tests. Some of the tests were not accurate. Initially. How confident are you in the ability of this Trump Administration program to get this very difficult job done? We have heard directly from General Purna. You know, we have confidence in them, but I'm sure it will be a significant logistical challenge. This has to occur throughout the United States, all at the same time to all of the states, the territories. And then some specific large cities. And are you also concerned about the smooth handoff from one administration to another? I mean, if the distribution depends on Operation Warp speed, which is a Trump administration program will the Trump Administration only has so many more weeks in office. Now, the Department of Defense under General Karna, you know, will still be there in terms of continuity, But in terms of the representatives from helping human services and the administration, we would like to think that they'll be robust conversation. Nation and communication as the administration transitions. Obviously, that has not happened as much as it should have yet, But we're hoping that all those communications will be going on forthcoming. Just to get back to the scale of the logistical challenge here. This is a vaccine requires two doses weeks apart. Do you have the infrastructure to track and time who has had a first dose when yes, we do. But that is a information technology challenge in terms of making sure that we get the right vaccine into the right person at the right time. And then not only the visor vaccine, but the Madonna vaccine that also is a to dose vaccine. We've heard so many states talk about the extreme budget pressure that they are under and this is an expensive undertaking. Do you have the money? You need to do it? And if not, do you think the federal government is ready to provide it well, it will be essential for the federal government to provide more funding to the States territories in cities that will be tasked with ministering the vaccine. Operation works speed cost billions and billions for the development of the vaccine on Lee $340 million has been allocated for the next part of the mission, the distribution and the administration so clearly states and territories and cities. They're going to need more funding from the federal government to finish and accomplish this mission. These issues you're talking about could occupy you for more than 40 hours a week every week, and you are at the same time dealing with a spike in Corona virus cases and having to contact trace people who may have come in contact with exposed individuals, overcrowded hospitals. How are you juggling all of this at once? Well again. This is the public health challenge of a lifetime. I don't think any of us have seen a 40 hour week. You know, in our memories I stand corrected three ways to deal with the pandemic. You can work on containment that involved the testing and contact tracing very hard to contain a virus that has spread this far. For example, Today we are reporting 11 over 11,000 new cases. In Pennsylvania. It's impossible to contact that many people, so we have to prioritize. We prioritize to congregate, setting such as nursing homes and other long term care facilities, Correctional institutions, schools, etcetera, Then we have mitigation. Basic mitigation sets his mass and hand washing and social distancing. And then in Pennsylvania, you know we had to have a stay at home advisory. And you know, we have really tried to recommend that people avoid not only large gatherings but small gatherings. And then they'll be the vaccine those of the tools and the public health to box that we have to work with. When you're dealing with community spread on the level that we are seeing now, where there is so much of this disease and so much transmission of it. Do you have to change your approach? I mean it, Zeke gone from hand to hand combat to fighting an army out. Imagine it has And so the basic public health tool of containment, which we would do for a small measles outbreak or for it outbreak of tuberculosis? That is extremely difficult for public health to do when we're seeing this type of widespread community transmission, and then we have to pivot to more and more mitigation. It's a very unpopular it is made public health officials sometimes unpopular throughout the nation, but they're absolutely essential to try to stop the spread. And then we have the light at the end of the tunnel, which is the vaccine, but there's no quick fix to hope in 19. After Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania Health Secretary and president of the Association of State Health officials. Thank you for talking with us in the middle of everything else that you were doing. My pleasure. Thank you very much.
