Is Biden Preparing to Give Sovereignty of America to the WHO?

"Show. Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to dean. Michelle bachman used to be congresswoman Michelle bachmann now. Michelle bachmann, you're the dean of the Robertson school of government at regent university. What we're talking about is obviously unconstitutional, unprecedented. And most people living their lives just can't believe that the people in leadership that they've elected theoretically could be so profoundly ignorant or just evil that they would turn the nation over to strangers to bad actors to people like the head of WHO, it seems impossible are senators like, you know, the good guys out there, Josh hawley and company, there's a number of senators and congressmen, Jim Jordan, who I would expect would be on this. Do you have any sense of any of them are talking about this? These are very good guys, but in their defense, I think a lot of them have no idea. We're all blindsided by this. It's not easy to get to them quite honestly. They've got a phalanx of staff in front of them. And the staff knows everything. The staff and these congressional Senate offices, most of them are 25 years old and know everything. And so it's tough to penetrate that wall that surrounds a member of Congress. But nonetheless, we have to try. We have to do everything that we can. I know senator Rick Scott, I spoke with his chief of staff, senator from Florida. And spoke to him, sent him information. Rick Scott tweeted over the weekend that he is in opposition to the who taking sovereignty over the U.S.. So it starting to penetrate. But that's not a big deal that Rick Scott, we would expect he would be opposed to somebody taking over sovereignty of the U.S.. We would expect anybody who's not an idiot or a communist to be opposed to this. So big deal, the question is, what does Rick Scott and his fellow senators going to do about it? I mean, that's a little bit. And again, what they have to do is they have to kick and scream and they need to throw a tantrum on the Senate floor in the house, floor and say, look, you're not getting another vote out of us. We're not even going to vote. Until you withdraw those amendments, you bring those amendments here in the House floor and the Senate floor. We're going to take a look at them. We're going to tell the American people what they say. And that's what people need to do. Read these amendments. A lot of what the amendments do is scratch out the right of the U.S. to have our unilateral authority. Instead, that authority is given over to the director

How the Heck Did Chris Stigall Lose 90 Pounds?

"Let's reach out to the man that keeps Philadelphia seen every single morning. A.m. 9 90s, the answer we call him crystal, but I'm not sure he is because I see this svelte individual is fit individual. He doesn't have the COVID extra 30 pounds. Is that really Chris? Brother, it is. It's me 90 less these days. I've got it. I'm trying to show off. I'm trying to strutting around the world. I went to a awards ceremony last night and people said, you look good. Yeah, 26 pounds. That's how good I look. And then you say yes. A small man on you like I was. I mean, I was a husky fella, you know that. You had, you know, you got what, a couple of pounds to lose. And you look great. I was, I was getting into that sort of, I don't know. You could have had a guy wires attached to me and entered me in as afloat in the Macy's day parade. I was getting that size. All right, before we talk about disgusting things like politics, let's share our happiness at what we've both done. I'm the amateur, you're the pro. I did this with amazing woman doctor Ashley Lucas at PhD weight loss and nutrition. My wife and I, 5 weeks, 26 pounds for me, 18 for her with super happy guys if you're interested, I'll give you the details later. How the hell did you lose 90 pounds, dude? I mean, I could plug him if you want me to. Yes, he's also a waiter. That's true. All right. His next doctor Rick tagg, TA GUE, doctor Rick tag at a place called the center for nutrition. And my old stomping grounds and my kind of original hometown of the Kansas City metro area. Doctor tig is spectacular.

Will the 2024 Republican Presidential Field Be Trump vs Everybody?

"No, I want to turn to The Washington Post column I have up this morning over at the landing page. Trump hovers, but the numbers of his likely rival grows. I divide would be 2024 people into three bags, ultra maga, maga light, and everybody else. And a few candidates like Ron DeSantis, Tom cotton, Mike Pompeo, Rick Scott, Tim Scott, Ted Cruz. They can do all three of those groups. What do you think about my general categories? Those are people like youngkin and Nikki Haley. And everybody else, Chris Christie, who's coming up next hour and Mike Pence and people like that. Fair enough tax hominy, taxonomy. I think it's a useful text on me. I kind of look at the erasers divided into two candidates or two groups. One is Trump than everybody. Everybody is. Yes, that's true. And so so much rise on what president Trump decides to do in 2024. I think he's leaning toward running at the moment, but that could change. If his president Trump, he likes to change his mind, I am provided. But I think it's important for the other candidates you mentioned here not to be deterred by the prospect of a Trump candidacy. If you really believe that this is your moment, the calling to call has arrived and that you can offer the country a successful presidency, you should run and you should be prepared to run against Donald Trump.

Rick Klein's Analysis of the House Midterm Elections

"So that's the breakdown of the Senate. They went on then to break down the house and the likelihood that Republicans are going to take control of the House. You focus a lot on the Senate control of the house almost certain to go to the GOP. They only need to pick up four seats. Yeah, and that map right there, you're looking at the narrowest House majority by Democrats in the modern history of the House of Representatives. We know how first midterms go for presidents. None of that has really changed. But what has changed is redistricting. And this is fascinating. Our friends over at 5 38, they looked at every state that's finished redistricting so far. They're not all done. So far they found a net total of 7 fewer competitive seats than just two years ago. Down to just about 33. That means in the whole House of Representatives, you're just looking at this kind of narrow window of truly competitive races. Places where the Democrats and the Republicans are relatively evenly split. So, you know, they know what's coming.

Rick Klein's Analysis of the Senate Midterm Elections

"And they know that the midterm election is coming. Here was ABC's Rick Klein talking to George Stephanopoulos yesterday on ABC's this week. Yeah, George, you know that they were in a tough spot when it comes to holding the House and Senate. But when you look at the Senate, it's a 50 50 Senate. It means Republicans only need to take one seat. But what's interesting is that not all the seats are up. Of course, only 35 Senate seats on the ballot and in that group that's 21 that are now held by Republicans 14 by Democrats. That means that Republicans have to play a lot more defense than they do the opportunities for offense. And when you zoom in a bit on the states that are likely to determine control of the Senate, these are the 9 states that are probably going to tell us who's going to be the majority and who's going to be in the minority. And 5 of them are controlled by Republicans only four by Democrats. That means if you're the Republicans, you've got to not only hold your seats, but then go on offense somewhere. That means picking up maybe an Arizona or a Georgia. Both states, of course, that went to the Democrats in 2020. Or you have to move into deeper blue territory and Nevada or a New Hampshire. That all assumes that the Democrats don't find any places of their own to pick up. And there's a couple of states that were carried by President Biden or were very close last time. They were targeting, including Pennsylvania, the primary on Tuesday, a spirited democratic fight, and an opportunity that Democrats see to win even in a very tough election cycle.

Newt Gingrich: Donald Trump May End up as the Nominee

"Here's Newt Gingrich. Last night, on Fox News channel, really smart one of the smartest men I've ever met. And of course, a veteran of political battles, the Speaker of the House, the author, the architect rather, of the contract with America, let's listen to what newt said last night on Sean Hannity show. Look, I think we have a lot of great candidates. I personally think Ron DeSantis has a tremendous future as an example, or somebody like Rick Scott, a number of governors around the country. But the truth is, if Trump retains his hold on the base of the Republican Party that he currently has and particularly if he starts shifting towards describing a better future, I think that he will consolidate and almost certainly end up as the nominee. Tonight's a very big night in terms of 2024, as well as in terms of 2022. And it fits what we're saying. The fact is, inflation matters, collapse at the border matters, crime matters, high prices for gasoline and food matters. And in the middle of all this, the corruption of the Biden family matters and I think the Democrats are going to discover that the January 6th committee doesn't matter to most Americans, and they're going to discover that a hard line pro abortion extremism doesn't appeal to most Americans. And in fact, will accelerate their loss of African American and Latino voters who are culturally conservative.

Nilsa Alvarez Unpacks America's Political Truth

"Now you've worked on some very successful campaigns. You've advised the senator Rick Scott Ron DeSantis, a worked on the Trump campaign. Can you unpack for us the truth of what's been happening politically in the last ten years in America? Because if you look at the figures from 2020, it is remarkable, of course this will be denied by the left behind closed doors. They're very worried about it, of course. But if you look at the figures for minority support for this non politician for president Trump, you see not only a 12 13 million vote increase between 16 and 20, you also see the highest rate of minority support for president Trump in the black and the Hispanic community in comparison to any Republican candidate or incumbent since the 1960s, so is it too much to say Nelson that this is an awakening? Can you unpack for us what is happening? Because we've been told for so long that, oh, the Democrats succeeded. They painted the GOP with a brush that they don't care. They're not interested in the minority of vote. What's changed in the last decade? Well, that's an amazing question. And just to bring some perspective when I serviced these different campaigns, it was under the umbrella of the GOP as a faith and Hispanic engagement director where I managed several campaign offices one for Trump in Hialeah in 2016 and then desantis and Scott in 2018 and Broward county. And so in 2015, the data was showing us and because I'm a pastor's wife and my connections were really in the ministry world. I would say that the data was showing that only 5% of church goers were participating in primaries, which is a very, very bad, it was just bad news for the evangelical and the Hispanic faith vote. So we started a very aggressive voter registration operation with our network of ministries and it ended up being the largest voter registration operation in the state of Florida, leading into 2016. And because so much was at stake in 2016, just the body of price in the Hispanic faith community started waking up and starting. We started having a record number of Hispanics that were registering as Republicans at our voter registration drives, not because we were waving a partisan banner, but because when they understood which party stood for their Hispanic conservative values, they started realizing on their own. Oh my gosh, I'm

Can you give the Hugh Hewitt radio program audience a preview of how you think next November is going to go? Here is where we are. We should be able to defend all we have. We have 21 Republicans up. We should be able to defend all those. Now, someone will be harder. We've added to Pennsylvania. We've got to defend North Carolina. We've got to defend probably the hardest of an incumbent is Ron Johnson and Wisconsin. But if you look at the quality of our candidates in the primaries, we got a lot of primaries that will come up in the next 30 days. We got great people in our primaries. We've done great incumbents running. So we just have to bust our butt every day. It's how you win races. I'm in a 50 50 state. You work every day and gosh, you have success. And where we have our pickup opportunities is one in Georgia. Is the Doug Jones of this cycle. A 100% what Biden Schumer and Bernie Sanders. And so we've got two we've got three good people in the primary. One of them is going to win right now, Herschel Walker's way ahead. We should be able to win there if we run good race.

He's got like a blue Paisley sport coat that looked like like he's in show business. And everybody in the plane is talking about him. Everybody's watching him. Everybody's looking at him and my seatmate really nice guy. He was a criminal defense attorney from Pittsburgh, Steve was my seat mate who didn't have a mask on incidentally, so I didn't have to ask and I know people got mad at me 'cause I was ready to ask if it was a little old lady with the mask on. Would you feel more comfortable if I wore a mask? Now that we don't have a mask mandate for now, but I'd have to worry about that. And nobody had a mask on, including the guy. So if you're watching on the Salem news channel, we'll try to put the first sneaky picture up. I snuck a picture, the poor guy is like closing his. If you can see him over my shoulder, kind of white hair blond white hair and then after I realized who he was and the guy next to me says, that's Rick nature boy flair. That's a superstar of the W and I think he was a superstar back in the day when it was still the WWF, right? World Wrestling Federation. Yep, Ric Flair, so he's a great guy. He was polite to everybody nice, great personality, and then I took a selfie with him and it's so funny. The selfie is even funnier because there's a guy behind me that looks like where's Waldo and he's looking over my right shoulder.

And it really started at the beginning of COVID when the federal government dispatched Frances Collins to he was the head of the NIH, the national Institutes of health, Anthony Fauci's boss, and he was dispatched to convince evangelicals to stop being resistant. And he's been very clear and on record on tape saying, I was sent to deal with evangelical resistance to lockdowns to mask mandates to vaccine mandates. So he went into churches. He had a lot of really strong relationships with what you might call the elite evangelical class, some very well-known pastors like Tim Keller, Rick Warren, and stetzer at the Billy Graham center at Wheaton college, Russell Moore, who was then head of the public policy arm of the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S., which is the Southern Baptist convention. So just a really influential people. And he drew on those friendships to do interviews, podcasts, where he was presented as the strong Christian brother. To come on and give advice on how and why to submit to all of these COVID rules. And when he presented these things, he didn't do it just from a medical point of view. He, along with these pastors, presented it as this is how you show your love for Jesus. This is how you obey the gospel. And that was really something that they didn't just say, look, we're presenting a scientific point of view. Here is one scientist you might want to listen to. They didn't present any counter points of view from the scientific community, but that they really punched it up with if you want to love your neighbor. If you want to obey Christ, this is how you do it.

Mitt Romney's Most Unforgivable Betrayal Yet

"Are rejecting katangi Brown Jackson, Marsha Blackburn, Rick Scott, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee Rand Paul Josh hawley, and credit to Josh hawley for leading the charge on actually uncovering the fact that katangi Brown Jackson has a soft spot for pedophiles. However, do we really have an entire Republican Party? Do we have a complete Republican Party? The answer is of course not. Whenever things are getting critical or crucial, you can count on two senators in particular. One to a lesser extent to betray the promise to their voters. Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins have voiced their support for katangi Brown Jackson. Now my criticism will be mainly focused on Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney. The reason is Susan Collins never pretended to be a conservative. She runs as an outright moderate who will basically vote for the Republican leader in the Senate and the rest she's a wild card. She's an honest, moderate. She doesn't lie to her voters. She doesn't. That's one of the reasons why she's able to win over so many Democrats in Maine. Mitt Romney lies to his voters, and that's who I want to deal with first. Mitt Romney is coming out and saying he's going to support the nomination of katangi Brown, Jackson. He says, in his statement, quote, kanji Brown Jackson is a well qualified journalist, jurist, and a person of honor. Who more than meets the standard of excellence and integrity. Man my support rests on judge Jackson's qualifications, which no one questions. I question. Hello. Would someone ask Willard Mitt Romney? That's his real name, by the way, Willard. Hey, do you think that not being able to tell you what a woman is? Do you think that's normal for a Supreme Court Justice? No one will ask that, of course. He said she demonstrated judicial independence. Oh, is that what we call it now? Leniency towards baby torture is judicial independence.

"Shopping tips. Rick One of the reasons online shopping is growing in popularity is because it reduces the risk of getting covert. But it also increases the chances of falling victim to cyber criminals. For the first three quarters of the year, the Federal Trade Commission received more than 235,000 complaints about online shopping a substantial increase from the same period last year. Now, shopping scams are a year round threat, but the risk goes up during the hectic holiday season. Because we tend to make quick decisions and criminals take advantage of that. If you're not careful, you could end up on a website. That's a complete scam. At best. You could get a lousy product or a counterfeit product or nothing at all. At worse, you could be giving your credit or debit card number to a crook. As we've heard, scammers are getting very sophisticated to entice online shoppers to visit their Web sites. What's top of the list? Well, the top motivator is price, according to a recent study by the Better Business Bureau owes Institute for Marketplace Trust People who see a really attractive price or more likely to buy that product and lose money. So if you see an offer that looks really great, just pause for a little bit and don't act too quickly until you have time to check it out, according to the BBB survey, those who took the time to research the website or business by an indepent. And source before making a purchase were less likely to lose money. Kind of curious how people find these bogus Web sites. I mean, how do they market themselves? Well, they used bogus email and text messages and fake ads. The AARP Fraud Watch Network tells me a lot of their complaints. Now deal with people have gotten burned after responding to a Facebook at be very careful about clicking on any ads on your social media feed or the come by email or text. The Fraud Watch Network warns criminals often put fake links in their ads, email and text messages. That will take you a website they created that looks just like the real website and let me tell you the criminals fake adds an impostor Websites now are so good. You might not spot the danger. So if you're interested in buying something you've seen it at the safe thing to do is go directly to the retailers website. Take good advice. Any other tips? We should know? Sure. Do your homework But trust your gut, According to the BBB online shopping scams survey, 45% of the respondents said they avoided losing money because they felt something wasn't right and bailed out of the transaction.

"Political, then political harmony. How can we all get along? That's aah! And you could we have some spa music, perhaps with a burglar burbling, you know, Gurgling Brook in the background as I welcome Rick Rad. It's to the program. Rick is a serial entrepreneur. A tech guy work for Microsoft and has done all kinds of things. And how many years ago Rick First of all, welcome to the show. Make you better be here. How many years ago? Did you turn your brain power over to trying to fix the political process? And was there alcohol involved before you set off on this? No, there's popcorn involved. I was on my sofa watching the election Results of 2006. And the moment that Nancy Pelosi was forecasted to be speaker of the house. I yelled at my TV and I don't normally yell at my TV. But I yelled at my TV that night and I found myself very motivated to to figure all this out. And solved the problem. I have a degree in philosophy, and I wasn't putting it to use. I was a computer guy wreck. Nobody puts their degree in philosophy. That's that's like a given. You didn't have to add that OK, well, I decided to go for it and put it to use because I figured, you know someone's got to solve this political divided, least intellectually. Yeah, And and that's a philosophy problems on a political problem. And so I at the time I was invited to speak all over the country on marketing conference is right. And so I travel the country. I talked to people in the airport in the hotel lobby and the hot tub and everywhere. And they didn't know I had a green philosophy. They were just I was just engaging him in. I'd say, Hey, what you think about politics and people will respond. So this now has come together into political harmony dot org's, which is your website and your entire philosophy is laid out. I spent about 45 minutes this morning watching videos because there's a whole Siri's of videos. They're not very long. But I really wanted to try and get on understanding of this and I started to get a little bit excited, But then the devil's advocate and me started throwing things up. So let's start at the beginning. And I want to hear how you Khun succinctly explained this And in a way that translates without a chart in front of you because of the charter is very important. So talk about how you approached this problem of political polarization. How did you begin to look at this? Well, I began just by again fell in the country talking to people and I didn't know where it would lead. I just I knew that I I understood my beliefs. But I knew that to solve the problem for re ally had toe learn other people's beliefs. So I especially set up people who believe differently than me. And try to learn all I could And I try to put all together now, after 2.5 years of talking to people I still wasn't anywhere near a breakthrough, so I actually gave up I gave up thinking while is just impossible. Too hard. It's too hard. A problem. Yeah. Yeah. And of course, that's when it happened. Oh, and and the way it happened is my son who was 13 time He's 24 now. He came home from from school. I think it was a grade and he was in a current events, class and back, and it was 2009. He was current events. What included cap and trade And so we were way were discussing cap and trade and I was explaining that you know it's a way of fixing incentives in a part of the economy where there's maybe negative incentives. It helps us prick Captain pollution and then we trade Permission to pollute within their camp cap and trade. And I was again. I was trying to explain to him that it was a way of fixing incentives. Invented gone down may wait a minute. The whole problem with government is incentives. So I asked myself a question. That's what philosophers do. Could something like happened trade? Help us with incentives inside of government. It was the question And so I think government spending is just an easy topic. Sure. Easy topic. Well, easy because the camp is kind of obvious, right? Right. The libertarian. Amy knew kind of what the camp should be right? That was step one. Then what's the trading like? That bad is an interesting question. What would be the equivalent of the trading and cap and trade applied to government spending? And at first, I thought of some sort of like parallel trading marketplace where combat on government programs living or dying, But government programs never die, and and that would create perverse incentives. I thought, too. That didn't make sense. And then I then I ask myself another question. I said, if we were to cap government spending nice and tight. What would we be arguing about? The answer is pretty obvious. We'd be arguing about priorities right where it is, if it was truly capped, would be forced to argue about priorities so that that helped me come up with this proposal called Cap and prioritize. Or the time I called a cab and grade and like cap in trade. And what Captain grade does is that economize is our social spending budget. Competition in this priority marketplace ideas have to compete, and they have to therefore improve or they get pushed off the budget. And so it's kind of like if you're familiar with the D C term. Ah, What does it pay as you go? Yeah, It is Kind of like a like a more advanced version of paved you pay as you go and prioritize the boot. But the point is through a priority based competition. Programs in government would be forced to compete and therefore improve and then within this budget, we'd be helping people better and better and better, And that's a way of maximizing our ability to help people that social justice right there. So now we have a right leaning cap and a left leading effect. And so I started talking people about that. And then 2.5 years later. On. This is the quick summary of the whole philosophy now. I started to realize that way. Economizing public action in this way has all these parallels with economizing private action in the private economy. And I started asking Well, what other parallels are there and I started to realize that democracy are represented. Democracy is is really economizing. Political action and foreign policy is economizing for inaction and The way we educate people to govern correctly, that's educating or that's economizing governing action. And so I ended up with US five economy model of society. I didn't start off that way. Just ended up that way. And then I filled it in with all the logic and the proof, And now we have the spread new philosophy. It's not an opinion anymore. It's an actual logical proof. And it's not. It's not even partisan. It is just, you know, humans exist. Therefore we have the power to take action, and there's five types of action and therefore five types of harm. And so on. And so we end up with this five economy model of society that has been proven to work in the real world. But now we can incorporate social justice and prosperity and political maturity and everything else we're fighting about end of this one model. So let me ask you this because I looked at this and I watched a couple of videos and this is one of this is why this is so challenging because the concepts and the way that you present them is it's pretty straightforward, but it's not easy to get right away. And and that's why I wanted to see if we could get Some really world examples of issues that we could apply this standard to because essentially, and I'm gonna thumbnail. Uh, one of the points that you make in one of the videos with the first video that I watch, which is obviously intro video. Um and that is that you know, we have to either every action either causes harm or doesn't cause harm. There's there's no, I don't think there's are there any neutral actions. I mean, let's just assume for the discussion of this point here. That thing Yeah, there you go. But every action is going to move you in a positive direction or cause you a problem. That's what those two results really are. And taking action to minimise harm. This is where I got stuck a little bit because you talk about government's role of minimizing harm to allow liberty and everything else to flourish. Isn't the devil in the details when you are talking about using words like minimizing harm, my harm tolerance, maybe a lot higher than your heart tolerance so that that's where all this stuff the logic of it makes sense. But we're so far away from logic in politics Right now we're in motion driven, and that's where I kind of get hung up..

P. lodges eighty six Rick first we got a lot of ground to cover here Rick but first and foremost the can you give us an update on the health and the well being of I am PT law enforcement here in central Indiana and then along with that the morale of I. M. P. D. and that was some of the police action shootings that happened over the past couple weeks in the protests well guys you know just last night we had another incident where someone tried to murder one of our police officers that now makes a total of seven police officers that have been fired upon in just a little over a month in our city one of which was killed in the line of duty on my dad this follows back to back months of additional shots being fired at our officers on top of the compounding violence it's in our community so the health and well being it's pretty pretty marginal right now related to the morale morale suffered it's one thing for us to be under attack from criminals and violent criminals in our community it's another thing to have our good leaders refused to publicly condemn no not open openly made threats of violence and acts of violence towards our officers and their families well that was the first time I had heard of any threats towards I. N. P. D. is when you were on with us last week I hadn't heard about that in the media I hadn't I hadn't seen a story about that published on the internet you were the first one to a lotus about things like that well I mean here's here's the facts without over twenty six known threats made toward our police officers in just the last two weeks you know it's now been two weeks since the first threat came man and our Indianapolis mayor still makes the decision to refuse to speak out and condemn such open threats I just always ask this question if any corporation in our city let alone our country had had twenty six openly made publicly made threats of violence of murder upon their employees and they refused to speak out about it what would be said about that right what it it wouldn't happen they would speak out so again we're just simply asking the question why why would you not speak out right have you had a chance to talk to mayor hawk said and let him know your thoughts your feelings and I get I don't know if you have or not but if you did how did that conversation go we have we've extended our calls multiple times not just with the mayor of Indianapolis but directly to the president the city county council remember guys these are politicians who are tripping over themselves to get proper care more call for various police reforms as though we need to fix our police because they're broken and I've done something wrong yet they can't get from the camera to condemn known public threats to attempt to kill our officers something's wrong in our city here it's open hostility from from what from externally and from what then and I don't think you can call it anything other than deliberate indifference when you know the steps are being made and you're refusing to speak out about and it sends a clear and convincing message not only to our officers but to their families and that is unacceptable Rick Snyder is the president of the fraternal order of police lodge eighty six so Rick you came on with us about a week ago after mayor Hogsett had his announcement of changes coming to the I. M. P. D. the body cameras and we've been hit up on Twitter a number of times with this question what would please reset the discrepancy in costs mayor Hogsett says body cameras is one point five million dollars approximately and that's the ball game here you gave us a substantially different number please reset of the cost issue if you what mine the real quick context before content remember as part of reform the knots and sixteen hours he's going to give us body worn cameras of which our rank and file officers called for four hundred and seventy five days before he made his announcement the mayor wasn't the first one to call for body cameras the police department leaders want the first call for body cameras the police officers were so you're gonna performance by giving us something that we call for if you do it nearly a year and a half later on top of that they budgeted one point two million dollars here's why there's been such a delay guys we call for these we also said we need to treat them finding commission to be upfront and honest with taxpayers how much this would cost we make clear it was going to cost anywhere from ten to nineteen million dollars for the total technology investment we knew that for a fact that the infrastructure needs in the body worn cameras alone would cost around nine to ten million dollars they budgeted one point two million so I just encourage you watch what happens with the contract now for the vendor that's been selected I guarantee you you're going to see that it's going to cost one point two million this year and then it's going to be substantially more in the the remaining years of the upcoming contract I'm going to venture to guess it'll come in somewhere right around nine million dollars after we had to invest millions of other dollars just to get the infrastructure in place listen we're not playing games here were very upfront actual we come with the facts and we're advocating for things to enhance our abilities to continue to maintain trust respect with the community that we serve it's our politicians who are dragging their feet just like they are on the issue of violence in our community remember we said let's have a commission to study solutions for this violence what did they say guys in February they rejected it and said we don't need it remember the mayor said we don't need another commission council or whatever you want to call it back he said we were ludicrous do you remember that and yet one of the first thing he calls for its part of police reforms Hey now they're bored so again you can't have it both ways in fact all we're saying is let's get together labor and management do this the right way it's too important if we don't and we have got to get this violence under control in our community and why on earth any politician not be willing to say that Rick you're talking about the violence here let's go into what happened in the early morning hours of this morning three juveniles are going on a high speed chase shots are fired at an officer this took place in the north west side around two thirty in the morning I mean there's so much going on here you've got juveniles doing this but this goes to show that even during the quarantine you still have a lot of violence being taken in the city that's right guys remember in April while we were under the initial steps of the quarantine the tightest lock down if you will we saw that sixty one people shot thirty five people stabbed we have multiple people killed including an eight year old child sixteen year old girl a mail carrier and a police officer this month already we've had forty one people shot eighteen Staten thirteen kills and remember at the beginning of the year we were told that we were ludicrous and our mayor said the numbers were moving in the right direction no they are not and we all have a collective obligation to get our hands around this and get it under control we've got a circling that's for what it is evil is evil and evil always follow the path of least resistance that is why we are seeing a surge in violence in our community because there is no one standing up and saying we're not going to take this anymore the lives of our residents are too important to turn a blind eye to this and again you can call what you want I call it deliberate indifference if someone wants to disagree with that point me to your strong statements of outrage point me to your strong statements combating this and show me your action I want to see actions over words they told us they had a plan they told us they did need our planet told us they had a plan where is it guys what have they done it's been months and multiple more people have died Hey Rick one of the questions I think about quite a bit and again we're chatting with Rick Snyder president of the fraternal order of police lodge eighty six why would anyone want to be a police officer right now no no I do not have made it perfectly clear we are incredibly pro law enforcement you're not gonna find a more pro law enforcement show anywhere in the city but I think it's a fair question why would anyone want to become a police officer right now after seeing what's coming from the mayor's office well people want to become a law enforcement officer because you're called to do so most of them can't even articulate it but you're called to do something that's greater than themselves and put others in front of themselves as a believer as you know I will always point back to my lord and savior Jesus Christ who set the example and said blessed are the peacemakers but here's the real question guys not why would anyone want to be a police officer the question is why would anyone want to be a police officer in the city of Indianapolis if their leaders can't step up and say it is unacceptable for you to threaten or endanger the lives of our employees are officers who are willingly risking their lives and so now here's what we're seeing low morale younger newer officers that are saying Hey they're looking for the exits one other city can I go to work I'm going to be value not just by words but by actions and we're seeing senior officers that are saying why should I stick around we also have appointed leaders in the police department like high ranking officials that are an appointed position they're contemplating stepping down from those positions because they don't want to be a part of an administration that will not stand up and defend the very officers that are risking their lives for us so this is a very Citrix serious situation it has been for many months and it's getting worse and now we're going into the summer in the middle of a global pandemic on top of that there is no time to wait here and yet again someone is making a political calculation about the timing of when they're going to say something it is always the right time to condemn threats upon police officers Rick if anybody has any questions or would like to have a spirited chat with you what's the best way to get a hold of you as a Twitter well absolutely and then of course I would strongly encourage listeners not just of Indianapolis but surrounding counties as well because I've I've I've made that clear it's coming to a neighborhood near you so if you want to make your thoughts known call the mayor called the mayor's office in Indianapolis and let me know what you think because obviously politics is writing about policing and that cannot happen he's on Twitter at Rick F. O. P. eighty six as always we appreciate the conversation thanks Rick thank you guys you got it all rights spirited chat man he's always fired up we bring him on the trick Snyder I was worried about the morale of the.

"Family and your community or going out to work so he can put food on the table and and pay rent. That's a very different kind of decision. And blacks low income workers are forced to make that decision much more and you add on top of that much higher rates of the underlying medical conditions that P put people at risk of heart disease diabetes lung problems a lot having to do with worse environmental conditions in which people live. That means that not only is the exposure risk it increased but the chances of having about outcome are higher. Those are those are two factors the the the the two pieces though that. I think we can really do something about it. You can't change whether or not someone has diabetes but you can ensure that every worker who's going back to work or working currently has the protective equipment that they need to minimize the risk and for each person who who becomes infected or who has contact with someone who's infected there. Were providing safe place for them to to isolate and food medication to be able to do that from for two weeks. Some countries have done that. But here in America what we basically say someone is your infected go home and self isolate and if you live in the in an apartment or a house with elderly relatives or other people who are at risk. You're basically saying that person go home and I'm sorry that you you're going to put your family members at risk in Dr Batra something I wanted to ask you about Given your time working in the Obama Administration The the president told our colleague. David Muir something in an interview yesterday that he said a few times that when he came into office the cupboard was bare things. Were not ready to go. You didn't have enough in terms of testing in terms of ventilators in terms of federal response. Plans you left. The impression that the Obama administration a left Disaster Preparedness Emergency Medical Preparedness of in utter disarray. Is that your understanding of the situation. That president trump inherited. I know you were there in the earlier years of the Obama Administration. But that does that ring any bells with you. Does that Jive with reality to your mind. Well they're pieces of that that jive with reality and one of the things that you see it in all political administrations you saw the Bush administration the Obama Administration and the trump administration is that. It's it's very easy for elected officials to say we'RE NOT GONNA put the money in to maintain public health system. So you've seen over the past fifteen years the loss of close to sixty thousand jobs in state local public health and these are the people who were doing lab testing. These are people who were doing contact tracing that you want to be able to have communicating with communities doing all the work tracing diseases working to control diseases and those systems are not where they should be but then the piece that doesn't ring true. Is that in the? Cdc is is the world's strongest public health agency and they should be out front here They should be out front. Talk to the public explaining what they're doing explaining why we're being asked to make changes to to our life and what that is do what that can do in terms of protecting ourselves and those around us and also explain anyone. Guidance changes your every outbreak. Which you know at the beginning is is minuscule and you have to make decisions based on limited information on on expert opinion as you gain new information. You want to change your guide. So that so that it's consistent with the best science if public health is now front in with that messaging if it's all being done by politicians half the public's can a discounted at face value based on who the the Political Messenger is and no one will be able to know what's being told that as as a change based on new information science versus what's being done for political reasons. That's the situation we're in right now. Dr Best we have so much more. We'd like to ask you. I know you've got Iran but we hope we can check in with you again our politics. It's really great to talk to you. Great talking to you John. Thanks wrap me on. Thank you so much Rick First of all were Richard Besser. Just just one of the one of the great. I mean one of the first one that I want to go to when I when I asked about anything medical you know Such voice of reason But I thought his answer to you on You know on on on the Obama Administration was an interesting one. Typical vessels measures. And he's he's blunt and I keep thinking about people who've made their lives around preparing for pandemics. They've got most of their lives being the boy who cried Wolf Right. The awful didn't happen for all of the previous concerns. We've obviously had huge public health emergencies. But nothing like this. Nothing like this was government prepared for this. I think the pretty clear answer is no because there was not a way to get to that level of preparedness to get the country on board for it to get political leadership on board for it but was the covered air was was that all Donald Trump's start from absolute zero in terms of emergency preparedness when he became president know even what he told David Muir. He's busy for the first three and a half years i. It's not just a problem with President Trump's leadership there's no question but it's also not accurate to say that it was the previous administrations fault in any way shape or form that the country was not ready for this. This is a this is a once in a century thing. Maybe a once in a wants more than a lifetime type type of episode and the other point that. I think Dr Besser. Are we really ready to reopen? It's happening and John. I've been around town a little bit here in Washington and it feels to me like people are itching to go when the weather got nicer and people are kind of bursting at the seems ready to resume their lives. But the question of whether it's actually safe is very much an open one. Yeah and you know. I asked that very open ended basic in the beginning here but the there's one thing that I think we've all kind of deluded ourselves on. Which is this notion that? Somehow the summer comes and things are better. I mean there. We don't know the experts. Besser is one of the experts. Don't know if this virus fades away. In the summer. Amman says a lot of respiratory viruses. Do maybe and maybe failing to come back in the fall but we. We don't know any of that so on that on that note Rick Let's let's get. Let's get back to work And let's let's make a point to check in with Dr at least every other podcast even if it's a.

that story in about twenty minutes time for a business update and it's brought to you by the Michigan economic development corporation the businesses of the future are being built today and Michigan is where they start learn more by searching Michigan your opportunity the coronavirus crisis hasn't generated much unity in Washington DC where Democrats and Republicans to shoot down each other's ideas but one idea is already getting some bipartisan support sending government checks to every American to put spending money in their pocket how would it work more from Rick Newman senior columnist at Yahoo finance Rick first off it doesn't seem to have much opposition it really doesn't you would think that at least Republicans who tend to oppose giveaways which would be putting up some opposition to this but they're really not in fact Mitt Romney Republican senator from Utah he's one of the first Republican to come out and back this so it's funny because in time of crisis everybody everybody's principles crumble and we are going to get he's almost certain we are going to get some kind of bailout bailout from Washington that does include the treasury department just sending checks to make could be everybody or could be a lot of people but it could be more than once so you're getting money in a mailbox so what do the thousand dollars is the check that's been discussed mostly I guess for proposed for many adults and maybe a few hundred Bucks for children if they're in the house also but to get this done properly I presume will take some serious logistics yeah Washington is actually done this before more than once so in the aftermath of the two thousand one recession the government sent checks to people in the government did it in two thousand eight as well when we were actually just at the beginning of that recession it became a real wiped out with the financial crisis and everything that followed so the mechanism is a parody I heard that the IRS knows who's ever who everybody is the know where everybody lives because of that because of tax returns if Congress did decide that this would somehow be income based it would have been a little more complicated I guess but the IRS doesn't know how much money you made in two thousand eighteen I'm not sure they've gotten frontal impact they have not gotten through all the tax returns for two thousand nineteen but they look at the data so they know if if they want to limit it to people you know to households that have what's the household income below a hundred thousand people of two hundred thousand I don't know what what the cut off would be but they do have the data to do that it would probably take a little bit longer Washington can't do this in a day or a week and they have you know the first Congress has to pass the legislation even that will take a little while but you know people who study this think that this could barely catch could be in the mail by early or mid April speak with Rick Newman senior columnist at Yahoo finance his pieces called it's time for free money from Washington R. two you raise the point in your story how come this is not an over generous liberal giveaway well the government really has to do something I mean the government at the federal government has any single job it is to step in in a crisis when a private market cannot get the job done in private market yet get the job done right now this probably is a better idea than the payroll tax cut which is something that president trump favorite early on he actually I think now is the better educated that he actually favors this idea just sending people checks other prominent payroll tax cut so that the payroll tax is part of the tax everybody pays in businesses to help fund social security and Medicare so if you spend that tax that means everybody will go up everybody's paycheck will get a little bit bigger until it first one is just a fact but that doesn't have the same one time the fact that you know at the check that arrived in the mail and if you don't have a job well you're not you're no longer on a payroll manager so it doesn't apply to you and who needs to help more people who are actually losing their jobs right now at the you know Congress government mailing a check will get it there will help those people where the payroll tax cut will not what would we do with the money or what would the government hoped we would do with the money to spend on anything but the person question because normally when when the government has done this before the whole idea has been to put money in people's hands so that they spent it because consumer spending is about seventy percent of the whole U. S. economy and when you're trying to grind their way out of a recession you have to give you know people are worried and they don't want to spend I want to hoard their money and spend as little as possible because I don't know how bad it's going to get the ideas give them some much extra money that is you know a windfall and maybe they will actually go spend it also encourage them to spend it thanks Rick Rick Newman senior columnist at Yahoo finance it's twenty minutes in front of the hour on this morning America's first news coming up next parents share tales of helping with homework with everybody under one roof here's the thing about new cherry vanilla coke though cherries named first all the flavors tastes just as great I mean it could have just as easily been vanilla cherry coke or it could have been coke cherry vanilla and since it's too amazing flavors of coke it might have been cold vanilla cherry coke or cherry vanilla coke coke unless you're in France which would make it to a cocktail of an island damage any Democrat New Jersey vanilla coke so good together and your cherry vanilla coke zero sugar same great taste zero sugar when you need professional building materials in a hurry the home depot has your back.

Why not send mom some So happy can the from rockets Sheri's berries, finally the closed freshly out the Golden dipped State gourmet Warriors. strawberries We'll see covered in decadent in toppings the next two chocolate or three games chips and pink shimmer on sugar still yet going they started to as nineteen Ribot ninety Golden nine State or because until you someone can double takes the berries them down. for just I'm not ninety believing nine it more at row. that Gelb on Just Twitter go to. where Mike Madison says as a fan of the Houston Rockets the best part of tonight's victory was a simple fact that none of the rockets were celebrating after this hard fought victory. That tells me they're not satisfied. And they know there's still plenty of work to be done on them. I'm happy, but I'm not getting. Ng too cocky after one victory to tied up at two games apiece. Because you know, what it's like to be very close. You know, what it's like to put this team right on the edge of elimination and put them right in the corner. And they've punch back and eventually knockout. So until you win four games. There's no reason to really overly celebrate. But if you're rockets fan. If you'll good right now. Now, can you go into oracle? And when either game five or game seven, and if your rockets fan. Dame, seven one could happen. But I wouldn't feel great going into a game seven I wouldn't. So if the rock in the series, I really do believe that have to be in six games because I've really would be stunned at the words go down in that building. I really would be. So you win game five. We get back to your home court and from there. We'll see if you could close the doors shut this time and slam shut on Golden State. All right. Let's go out to the phones. Eight five five two one two four CBS. We start things off with Rick and Houston. Rick first, stop on CBS sports radio. Hey, how you doing tonight doing great can't complain doing pretty good, right? I'm doing good. But I hear all this talk about you know, how Steph curry and Klay Thompson, everybody not doing a good job and shooting Durant stud. He's going to do its job. So why don't we give credit where credit is due on the rockets defense, but they open I give credit the rockets defense. I said even though without good. They're playing defensively. It's just shocking still to see no matter. What defense they're playing against Steph, and clay shoot the way that they do because. Yeah. Of course, you got to give credit to the defense and clearly Houston putz Golden State in a spot where they're not usually at. But even with the good defensive player. It's still shocking to see with how much we pray. Stephan client, it'd be this poor poor shooting in the series. Well, I mean in that's occurred to the defense of the rockets in how they're defending those two shooters because they can shoot lights out any night. But when it comes to. To defending somebody. And you know, you can't shoot the ball. That's what it is. I mean, it's defense that going to win games. You know, you're not gonna stop. Kevin durant? Nobody's going to stop. Kevin Durant and Balik, nobody. He is the MVP when it comes to be in the most valuable player and stepping up in trying to promote this team. But. Dan. Tony's good job of you know, what you guys out. I mean, there's a lot of guys that didn't play tonight for the rockets because they couldn't defend certain players for the Golden State wards. Appreciate the phone call even without great. They did ply and I'm not taking anything away from Houston because that'd be silly. And this is why still Golden State's going to win the series with as good as they've played and how dominant they looked at time. And as cold as Golden State did look at times. Golden State still had a chance to win and they had two very good looks or to put it into overtime tie the game. At least. And a chance to tied up at one eleven one eleven Durant. Missed a wide. Open. Shots stuff gets a good. Look. He couldn't make it. Either. And that's just my point with the warriors that even though we've seen them look comfortable at times and not look as dominant as times you have to have this team not show up and the caller K D is going to show up. You're gonna have to have the rest of the supporting cast not show up for two more games in this series. I self a tough time believing that Steph and clay aren't going to eventually find their shot at the series. But we'll see. That's what makes it fun. Let's go to Joel Houston, Gerald. How are you? My friend. Hello. How are you doing always happy to speak with you? Always hear your voice. Jeld your mind? Thank you. Every game in this series has been a very close game. And so I was at the game this evening sitting courts that in the last two shots, everyone held it breath. Kevin Durant had a good look Steph. Curry had a good look, and they missed the shot. Look was on outside this evening. I roll players played will now we have to go to oracle and play. Well, but we have beaten him in or go. But we have we beaten in winning games really count to question because they're the champions. And as you so eloquently essay, it you have to believe that they're going to get this out toback and defense has been good. But I roll players playing well, and they missed that boogie bags whatever his name is. They miss him. They hit him the series would be over. But I believe we can go in or win. And I do believe you analogy that if we if we go to a game seven and orca we're going to lose just the tap. You always win important games. It's just like when you played New England and New England in the playoffs is going to be very difficult to beat them. And you knew the rockets remind me of the rockets and not going out of conference standing conference. The rockets to me are. What the ravens have been to the patriots over the years whenever the ravens by the patriots and the ploughs it is always a close game. Now the difference between the ravens and the rockets is the ravens of taken down the patriots. You only need to do it in one game in the NFL here. The rockets are once again, Gerald, and I agree with you. I think this is a rockets team they'll have the confidence when you get as close as you've been last year. You're gonna have the confidence when you play them the next year. But still just with the optics in the field. And the way we look at the warriors. I agree the jail, and I said earlier as you pointed out, I don't think that they would lose a game seven. But then I'm sure. A few years back. You know, we've seen this team lose a game seven at at home. We have. So this is a series. They had Gerald all these games have been close. But when the warriors take a to lead. I didn't think that the rockets are gonna find a way to win games three and four, and that's what's very impressive about this. They won games three and four and these games are so closely Gerald talking about one of four to one hundred fifteen to one nine one twenty six to one twenty one. And then last night was one twelve to one eight and they're so close without clay and Steph stepping up and delivering so if I was just betting on the series, then giving you my feel on the series. Well, yes, the rockets have been very good in this series rockets. Very good last year. To beat this team though, you need a great team effort, and can you find a way to get that great team effort and slowdown? Players other than Kevin Durant. Two times could be the next three games. And if you find a way to have the ran has it off night you better win that one. We'll see it's still tough for me. And I still can't put myself in the position to pick against the warriors. Even though the rockets have showed us last year they were more than capable and have showed us this year. Now that they're more than capable as well, take one more before the break. Let's go out to Ben in Hoboken, New Jersey. You're next on CBS sports radio. Hey, what's going on to me? I could definitely see Houston winning the series. They're comfortable playing oracle to me. They got to be kicking themselves with the way they lost name one. They have warrior, beaten and just handed to them. I think the way Golden State playing right now. It's there to Kevin Durant reliant and that plays into to the to the rockets hands PJ Tucker probably plays them as tough as you can play. Kevin durant? He's the best score in the game. So you're just gonna have to make work as much as you can. And and tire them out, which he can do and you can have to curry and Thompson try to beat you in right now. I think hardened has finally gotten his rhythm going after the first couple of games there in poll only hitting she shot, and then when Gordon's going they they can hang with Golden State beat them. They're probably more comfortable than any other team playing at world Grena. So I could definitely see them win in this in. I thought it'd be six in the rockets favor. I'm gonna stick with that. And I definitely don't think if they win the series. His I think Houston gonna win it. But I think Golden State run ends this year. I think the bucks I had money on them from beginning. I'm going to ride with them. I think they've been the best team all year, and regardless of who comes out of the series. I'm going to stick with them. But I think the rockets have their number. This is going to be their best shot to and their end run right now. And I think they can do it. We'll appreciate the phone call. Thank you for the passion as well. Take time out when we come back. Let's transition over to Milwaukee in Boston this appointment for the Celtics Milwaukee people tried to discount them going into the playoffs. They had the best record in the league. And all I heard was an experience that won't be good enough Middleton your second best player you can't win. And I sat there, and I said this. I said this two months before the playoffs started. I said it's tough to pick who's gonna come out of the east because Boston conflict the switch at any second. The Sixers an excellent starting five health problem though. And the raptors. Very good team as we know. But they have some post season struggles different team though this year. And someone asked me who I think we'll get the files I said, Milwaukee, so Milwaukee. Potentially getting to the finals doesn't surprise me. But it's how dominant they look. That's what surprises me and Boston. Now could be done in five games. So we'll talk a little bucks. We'll talk a little Celtics when we come back. If you want to sprinkle in your phone calls.

"Applauders? Remember that? I love it. Probably wondering why why did you ask Karen read play this particular, Melanie? So I read a. Letter to the editor in the San Francisco Chronicle this morning by the city attorney Dennis Herrera who I think is splendid by the way is that a great job. And this is what he wrote regarding. Let's ban political grandstanding with an editorial on March twenty second the chronicle is entitled to its opinion. It's not entitled to an alternative set of facts. Here are the facts years of progress in reducing you smoking were erased last year the evidence is overwhelming that e cigarettes not traditional cigarettes are what's driving the surge in children using tobacco products e cigarettes e cigarettes, use increased by seven hundred twenty eight percent among high school students and by forty eight point five percent among middle school students last middle school students by God. There were no significant changes in use of other tobacco products during that period, irrespective of grade level there were one point three million more Americans students using tobacco products last year than a year before that spikes comes overwhelmingly from children, vaping vaping and Harare continues. That is not my determination. Those are the findings of the centers for disease control and prevention the US surgeon general has called youth vaping an epidemic. He is. Correct. Inexplicably the food and Drug administration has failed to conduct the public health review of e cigarettes that is required by law before they hit the market. These are products that should not be on the shelves until that review is complete. That is why. And this is rare city attorney that is why and supervisor. Shame on Walton. Have proposed an evidence based approach to prevent another generation of youth from becoming addicted to nicotine cigarettes are bad. But they're not what is grabbing our children into a lifetime of addiction e cigarettes are doing that. That's why we're taking a common sense approach to address the real problem in front of us on the chronicle opines about again about e cigarettes. I suggest it look to the facts and disclose it to its readers that e cigarette manufacturer jewel is one of the major advertisers. The public deserves no less. I wanna be very clear about this. This. This e cigarette business, disturbs me. I was at a public school recently where I was told that kids this is a high school that kids were using e cigarettes during the lunch hour, and there's no way to stop them. I guess I wanna ask you a question. Do you believe that the city attorney is right in proposing a ban on the sale of e cigarettes. How do you feel about that? And and do we have anybody who smokes e cigarette out there? I want you to call four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten and I want you to tell me why you use any cigarette and more than that. I want you to tell me whether you understand the health risks involved in e cigarettes. I asked a question respectfully, but I ask it firmly because it is an epidemic as Dennis Herrera points out in his letter to the editor. And what about a company like jewel here in San Francisco based here? And of course, their whole product development is based on getting people hooked. Oh, no, no, no, no. They'll say it's better to use an e cigarette. Smoke a cigarette I'm not buying that. Are you four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten how firmly should we crack down on cigarettes? And is the city attorney of San Francisco right when he defends his proposal to ban the sale of cigarettes, and what do you think about the findings of the centre of disease control and prevention, the US surgeon general has called you facing an epidemic. And he's correct. So are there any vapors out there? If you're a vapor. I want you to pick up the phone, and I want you to call eight zero eight zero eight ten and I want you to describe why you vape, and whether or not you think the city attorney is right or wrong. Do you believe that e cigarette use increased by seventy seven point eight percent among high school students and by forty eight point five percent among middle school students last year. Doesn't that tell you something? And what do you think about these flavored? Oh, yes, you can get cheesecake or chocolate cake or or Honey or whatever you want. And of course, what you're really getting is a fix. A fix of nicotine four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten oh, look, I'm not a fanatic. I don't smoke. I never liked smoking. My mother was heavy smoker. My father smoked I never liked smoking at all. But what bothers me about vaping is. It's masked as something that is. Well, not dangerous. But it is dangerous four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten so I'm asking the question is there. Anybody listening to the sound of my voice who vapes. And if you do I want you to call and explain to me. Is it a kick is at a high. What is it? I'll never forget. When my son Samuel was in high school. We were in Orange County. And he went to one of these hookah bars, you know, where they looked at him. I said darling. Do you know what you're doing at a hookah bar, and he really didn't. I don't think he understood. So I explained it to them. And when he saw how upset it made me that he would use this product with all the different flavors. He stopped doing it. Not because I forced him to because he was an adult. And of course, he can do what he wants. But I feel so passionately about the danger of smoking. And by the way, we're gonna play for you a commercial later on all member William Talmon who played Hamilton burger in Perry Mason when he was diagnosed with lung cancer, he made a commercial, and I think we have that. And we'll play it later on. But let me get to your your phone calls. Rick calling for San Rafael, Rick. Welcome decay. GO? Hey based on I've been listening, and I'll tell you. I've been a cigarette smoke for twelve years in a year ago. I got diagnosed with cancer, and my doctors tell me they told me to quit smoking cigarettes in I struggled. I bought the big change things struggled, and I lied to my doctors. I lose an emotional thing. Anyway picked up this jewel. And I tried it on February ninth Davies for my daughter's birthday I wanted to give her a good birthday present. And I tried to Joe. And I haven't had a cigarette since so when you're that I'm fascinated. This is really important. I'm so glad you're saying this what it did. Dr. What it did was it took you off cigarettes? Now, have you told your doctor what you're doing? Yeah. And what is your doctor? Tell you. Well, they. Of course. Yeah. The smoke. I don't stink. Little more clothes, and I know that garland. Know that smoke is bad. No. But what I do for a cigarette is I just take a little hit a little Joel thing. Urge goes away. I don't have to keep puffing on it. How do you think? It doesn't affect your health one way or the other. In other words, you've already got the problem. And you're just saying it's better than smoking a cigarette. Oh, I don't have. I don't have huge. Okay. So let me ask you if you drink. Oh, my so let me ask you. Let me ask you this. You have children. What would you think of your children decided to vape? Being. Not. Older that age for cigarettes. Firm and your parents are from your peers. Yes. I think the parents should be eligible percent. I agree. I won't tell you story. When when my parents sold our house, we moved into an apartment, and I went to see the apartment before they signed for it. And the woman who had been in the apartment before we lived there had been a heavy smoker. She had emphysema, but she still smokes in bed. And she had died we walked in. And I could take my finger against the wall. And it was disgusting. What came so to me? Putting that in your body is all right, Rick first of all, I'm glad you called. I'm glad you gave us a positive example. And now in a way what you're telling me is it's better to vape than it is to smoke. Let's see if people agree or disagree. Smoking is worse than the nicotine. And I wanna wish you every success in health because your children love you. And they watch you, and we want you to be okay. Oh, yeah. To do this for myself. I all right, Rick. Thanks a million. I appreciate the call. Let's go to Stanley calling from Richmond Stanley, welcome to cage. How's it going? Great fire away. So yeah, I I I used to smoke blackened miles which a cigar. And to me. Is so much better. I sleep better. I can smell and I don't spend as much money. But I feel like Joel is only in the background because kids are buying it. When there's other big stuff or other big product, helping and all it is is nicotine is not smoke. Yup. So to me, it's not as bad. Okay. And if you have children. Yeah. I have a eleven month old. Okay. How would you feel about your eleven month old being eleven years old and vaping? Well, I wouldn't like it because I didn't pay when I was eight years old. I see. Six. And I do it for a while. And I heard your last caller you talked about. You know, your doctor? My doctor about it. And you know, I should stop because they don't know the effects of yet. I know the smoking but about the nicotine more than just a smoking. Yup. It's a dangerous business. But I'm glad you called. And I wanna wish you every success.

"Look, I understand how someone like look I was young member. And I get into all whipped up in a crowd. And you say something you think oh gosh. I wish I hadn't said that. I've done it on the air like Keith just did. But the the problem I have with her is as you walk it back. I mean, she just said I stand by it. I'm gonna use that kind of light. That's that's not doing tonight. She's saying it's that's speaking truth to power, that's not speak you being crude. And it's run its coursing discourse that doesn't need to be course in more than it is. I agree. It is crude. But also think Rick first of all Donald Trump did use that exact same language use the exact same. Word that receded to leave did not only that. But other people around Donald Trump like Ted Nugent have said even worse things about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and they get invited to the White House for Donald Trump audience. They're not members of congress. Just the Oval Office. They're not members of congress. She has an obligation and the president in front of in front of the family front of the country that hold some standard. I've been very critical of President Trump and will continue to be when he doesn't uphold that standard. And I think I'm glad that Nancy and Jerry and others. The democratic side said the same thing about her quickly before we go. She though is standing by unapologetic. And she and she shouldn't be of Trump's playbook. Come back down. How many times did your parents say to you? Two wrongs don't make a right. Donald Trump may talk this way. But Democrats do no service to themselves to talk this way. And they do no service to the country. The goal here isn't to drag all of us down to Donald Trump's level. The goal is to be better than him and move quickly beyond.
