"This is anything is possible I'm just Jack Priscilla We're with the former director of the center of disease controls the CDC doctor Robert Redfield doctor 245 Americans die every day from fentanyl And nobody cares That's just imagine if we launched a plain load of people every day we'd be going crazy 245 a day talk to us about this modern day skirt You know Jack I can tell you someone who cares deeply and it's me and my wife You may know this you may not know this but of my 6 children I almost lost my third son From overdose with fentanyl He has musician He had three albums out He was playing New York every night different places And he got into cocaine and that cocaine got mixed up with fentanyl and he almost lost his life It's interesting because I went to mass the other day and on Sunday was a prodigal son and then the other day was a reading from John the fourth which was about a gentleman asking our lord Jesus to save his son And she's a city would Well flashback for me on the prodigal son at that time I knew my son was in big trouble He had recovered from his overdose was life was saved by rescuers But I then became aware that he had a serious problem with crack cocaine And was trying to get him help and get into accept the help I went to hoping to mass on the day that John the fourth was read about the gentleman asked Jesus to save his son And Jesus said he would Now before that I went to the altar and I was prostate begging Jesus to save my son because Joe and I lost our first son Shortly after birth and I told him I didn't have the ability to sustain and loss of another child And then the following Sunday was Easter Sunday my son came home And he was in tears He said he's ashamed of who he is I said you should never be ashamed of who you are Your precious in the eyes of God You have a medical problem and we need to take care of it Any surrender is keys to his house as computer is phone his apartment And the following Saturday in the feast on the feast of our mercy Sunday he went into treatment And we're now 7 years later and he's been in remission for 7 years and recovery for 7 years And it's been a gift from God But it's fentanyl And I became CDC director thinking I was going to go down and confront infections around the world epidemics And the first epidemic I was asked to take on was fentanyl And it's an epidemic The year I got there 80,000 people died 80,000 As you know this year unfortunately more than a 100,000 people die This is a terrible terrible terrible epidemic And we need a much more aggressive comprehensive response to this epidemic It's personal to me because I thought I understood in drug use disorder because I was a doctor in Baltimore 60% of my patients had used heroin I knew this okay But I had no concept of the impact of drug use disorder to a came into my own family And the complexity of trying to deal with it in a positive way Recovery should be the rule not the exception We have many programs in this country But if you try to figure out which ones work and which ones don't work you can't figure that out Now we ought to know which ones work and which ones don't work And the ones that don't work ought to be out of business Because the fact is that recovery from addiction should be the rule not the exception Now critical to that is you and I know is faith I think the way my son got through this was he learned to re embrace his faith He learned to ask God Not his father To heal him just God had the power to heal and his father didn't have the power I could pray for him I could beg God as I told you I laid on the floor in the church begging God to save my son And I can tell you I felt an enormous relief the next day when I went to mass in the gospel was read and John Ford And in that gospel agenda father asked Jesus to save his son and he said he would I left that mass with confidence I didn't know how he was going to do it But somehow God was going to save my son And now 7 years later my son's a musician He's alive He no longer uses drugs you know and longer uses alcohol you no longer uses tobacco and finally the last step was he gained a lot of weight in that journey up to probably 260 pounds and now he's back under a 190 and he looks great And he's embracing life but raising life from a someone who understands totally that the person that took time to save his life Was not his father.

"I think for a long time. Partly because the press echoed it. The idea was that the progressives have the leverage but they don't the progressive argument is well. You've got this bill that you want. That's got five hundred. Fifty billion dollars of new spending in. It is a one trillion dollar package total. And if you don't spend another three and a half trillion on top then you can't have that and the progressive very clever. I'm they come up with a way of strong bombing colleagues into doing what they wanted. And what we've seen in the last few days not just from mansion and cinema but from say maggie hassan and presumably other democratic senators. Maybe testa as well as a bunch of house. Democrats who call themselves moderates anna bunch of house. Republicans who call themselves. Moderates is the realization that that's that's not really a threat because we would rather have nothing then we would spend four trillion dollars especially given biden's approval rating the state of the economy. The risk of inflation supply chain. She's and so on so. I am more optimistic that both bills will go down that i was. I do think that there's going to be some sort of accommodation because it's not in the interest of the democratic party for biden to fail on both but the chances that they're gonna spend four trillion dollars in the next six months. I think are approaching zero. Now that i'm more optimistic that both low crashing burn. I remember putting a forty percent transcended. I think last time you ask questions about this. And i would say it's a bit higher now too and i. I grew charlie. I think progressives act as though they have nothing to lose. But i think they have more to lose than moderates if this falls apart you know they want to spend money and of course they can try and pretend like they won't spend money if they can't spend as much as they want but i don't think that's true in the same way that it's true that moderates won't vote for it if it's too high can vary more optimistic. Less same more optimistic. I think mansions floating the idea of waiting until next year on any massive spitting bills. If that's right that is that his saying it out loud makes it a possibility that it was not a wasn't a real possibility just a few weeks ago so i think the idea again something gets passed before the midterms. Maybe it's only the bipartisan obstruction. Deal but also. I think this argument and how gets it up a result of the year. Twenty twenty one c jim. I was going to mention that. But i'm not certified to evaluate mansions private comments only the ones that he makes in public and so i didn't want to be struck off the register of mentioned whispers. I'm the same. 'cause i always thought there'd be moments when it would look like they're on the verge total failure. This is one of these moments. Maybe i took a little bit more optimistic. But a as we've probably cited several times in this podcast you've all events as Piece of legislation is the path to getting it passed his indistinguishable from the path of it. Going down so we don't know whether this is going to be like clinton care which actually you know. Hillary care which actually crashed in burn after being dragged out and it was hard to believe that. Actually let it die because it was going to be a disaster midterms but they did or obamacare which dragged on and on and they exacted a political price in a look like you know a couple of times it was going to go down and they actually passed. It ended today. I still think they they pass both both of these things. But it's it's going to be a highlight act and then final and ask one more if you guys will forgive me extra special bonus question. We have three major sports going on at the moment in the ice america we have. Nfl football of college football. We have major league baseball. Which knows is the best jim carey. Nothing gives me joy. Like watch jets on sundays zan. What's what's best the nfl college football or mlb. I like baseball the best for sure. I'll say you know both the yankees and notre dame are just enraging to me most of the time but The heart of the matter is which sport is the best. And i think baseball is is always the most fun to watch. Even when you're teams driving you crazy. I love baseball. But i i think at the moment i'm more into nfl football. I said the nfl so incredibly thrilling. Is this just a hugely entertaining. Game i love is ball always love watching baseball by just think it's hard to top the nfl. I haven't gone back and actually looked at the highlights of the chiefs. Ravens game from sunday night but every picture i see of it that i come across. Online is lamar jackson flipping upside down into the the end zone. This incredible duel between these two incredibly talented quarterback. So i think it's the the nfl for what it's worth. Hit a few other things before we go. Jim geraghty what been up to. So i can't say this is a lighter item or fun But picked up. Scott dot leads new book. Uncontrolled spread mike open. Nineteen crushed us and how we can defeat the next pandemic when i'm not working about pandemic coverage like to lighten up. I probably more probably more lifting. The jet is yes. I need something brighter in obviously afghanistan covering is another grim topic. So i've already read. Before we started taping up corner post of a segment. In which got leave goes. Through the first communications between robert redfield of us cdc at his chinese counterpart and we kind of knew chunks of this story but got leave lays out step by step and it will just leave you. Your your blood boiling. You'll see unbelievably furious. At how glaringly obvious was that they were getting a dangerous contagious virus. And the chinese government. Just didn't want to deal with it. Just didn't want to admit it. And that is a big reason why we are where we are not relative but so far it's brilliant. Everybody gets speaking of football. You've been following the gators as usual while the gates played alabama this weekend and i thought that they were going to get blown out and they didn't get blown out and in fact they lost in the most heartbreaking wavell which was by one point A at she was it was two points but they lost because of a missed extra point and then they went to try and make up the gap and they didn't succeed in doing that. And the clock out but it was a pretty good performance. overall especially against alabama. Gators made all of their mistakes in the first quarter. They conceded twenty one points in the first quarter but then after that they outplayed alabama and all three quarters and they could have won the game. And so although i suppose after his is a little bit heartbroken. I was much less than i thought i was going to be. An a hell of a lot. Less than i thought i was going to be at the end of the first quarter when it looks as if it was gonna be an embarrassing blowout so zan. The war with the squirrel grinds.

"Unc reported the national institute of health. Twenty eight lab incidences involving genetically engineered organisms six of them involved corona viruses including sars. Moore's and stars koby to however instead of finding out what happened in. Its own. Labs i the. Us keeps sliding slinging mud at others. Mean i just got to say this. I mean it would be comical if we were not talking about a bioweapon being thrown around in this conversation. And what i find amazing is it starts out talking about you. Don't remember when china. In america they were all chummy. Chummy when we all just bought into the fact that this was of national origin and it came from a bat and once you know when we were all being censored by facebook and youtube to for ever suggesting like ralph barrick here at a chinese laboratory in wuhan. I mean. This is a peter. Da- zack here. Working side by side with the chinese. They're being funded by the nih to do that work. I mean while that was all being censored and you weren't allowed to have those conversations seem like china and american whol. We're just getting along just fine. But what's amazing about. This letter is as soon. The united states finally buckles all the pressure. Starting from you know internet talk shows like mine and other bloggers and people with brain still working and including the former head of the cdc robert redfield who said you know. I looked at all the evidence and pretty much looks to me like this came from the wuhan lab well as soon as that started becoming the narrative. What's amazing about this. China doesn't say. Hey this is ridiculous. All being crazy. This is a natural virus. It was in our bats. We all know that it doesn't make that argument instead. It gets defensive and says oh yeah. it's all loudly. No no no no. It's your lab leak and you better admit to it which says to me. That is somebody's lab week. I mean that's what to be and these two like a couple can squat all they want about it. But i'm going to guess that their fingers are all over this from both sides pretty revealing stuff and quite an interesting little spat going on over a spike protein at central bioweapon from a laboratory that we are now dealing with as it's mutating and changing all around the world. We're gonna talk a lot about that. We're gonna talk about booster shots. We're gonna talk about all sorts of stuff but first let's really drill down on what this conversation is going on between china in america because i can now is getting involved in this discussion burst of all. They're complaining about ralph barrick in laboratory in north carolina. So just so. We know what china's talking about and we've talked about this on our show but if you're new to our show this video that i think reveals remember the conversation is you know was the nih funding laboratory in wuhan to gain of function research. Which was supposed to be illegal. In the united states of america and the question i guess would also be was ralph barrick doing gain function research funded also by nih. Eko health was sort of the money. Launderer in this situation. Or giving out the money being provided by nih through. Peter dad's zach. This was a very interesting video. That i think reveals. You know the type of work. That's being done by ralph barrick and china's now complaining about him and this laboratory matching pugh located within intact..

"To watch it. This is exactly. I think what they didn't want to have happen. We were all supposed to just hop in line like lemmings in march ourselves off of a cliff but instead we are starting to resist powerful images there and great spoken words by you know just average citizens right. That's all it is. It's all any of us are all of us. It's just it comes that moment of when you say i've had enough. This makes absolutely no sense. And it's you know it's amazing to watch these parents and leaders and doctors as we stole. They're stepping up and telling the truth Starting to give up on worrying about what is going to do to their license or their careers because really what world is there to live in if we let all of this take place. There's a great moment though as we talk about mass and i guess in a little bit way about the vaccines you know. We have all these parents that are now fighting this battle in the schools. Nobody wants to master their kids. Well let me not say that. But there's obviously more than fifty percent of the country doesn't want to mask their kids and the science teams to back that up. But we're hearing the opposite we here in the cdc say no we're recommending mass for every single child in school. Where's the science on that. And i keep saying that. Where's the science on that. How are we going to allow alinsky to step in front of the united states of american said. I'm putting you back in mass without presenting any science whatsoever. I mean we spent a year in mask. The viruses still here. It's still seems to be running rampant in certain areas. You're vaccines a failure. And yet it's all still. Here's the lockdowns clearly did not work. The mass did not work or we were supposed to be free of this thing by now. Well it's nice when every once in a while someone in mainstream media decides to ask the question. I've been asking on the high wire for like months. Well they asked it of former. Cdc director robert redfield. This is a fantastic moment. I want you to remember. This all started. When this guy was in charge of the cdc he was looking at all the data and now he's being asked. What data do you have after a year of this. How do we know that mass work should. We be listened to the. Cdc this is what the former head of the cdc had to say. When you look at the cdc is recommended now and you know they're basically saying everybody should be masked right and we talked about the fact that there has been no study that would that would back that up So the question is and you see. You did some studies then but you did with dummies. Wh where have they been for the past ever since. Then what's been going on for the past nine ten months why. Why don't we have data rather than as you say just opinion. That's leading this push with our schools. I think it's a fair criticism. A fair criticism. You know you heard. The i think in the wall street journal they talked about forty. Two billion dollars of nih funding in less than two percent was on covert. I mean these are critical. Questions is routine screening twice a week in school. Is that the real way to limit. Interschool transmission is it You know wearing masks. Not wearing masks you know. I'm of the point of view that this has to be locally. Decided as opposed to general mandate Particularly in the absence of data. But you know. I've said before i do believe that mask are better than having received a vaccine. That didn't work in you but that's not to say that. I'm convinced that we can make the statements that the best way to protect kids in school is as some as advocated universal masking. I think maybe better ventilation. Maybe better sanitation. Maybe routine testing twice a week to identify. Silent epidemic maybe reinforcing in parents that they don't send their kids to school if they're sick and they don't send them to school with their siblings are sick. Said he think the current. Cdc rule that all kids should wear master saying that. The current cdc is wrong on this issue. I'm saying that. I haven't been able to review data. That supports that recommendation. Okay i have not reviewed data that supports that and he even said you know particularly in the absence of data. These are very difficult decisions to follow. I mean in the absence of data so there we are the former head of the cdc that saw all of last year's information he's watching. I'm sure he gets a phone call once in a while and can ask them friends still on the inside. You wanna hear me some of that data. I mean when he's makes the statement. I still stand by my previous statement. That the mask is certainly going to be better than the vaccine. That didn't work for you. I mean it's amazing statement isn't it. I mean better than the thing that's doing anything at all. It's supposed to be wraps toilet paper around your head. I would say that that works a little bit better too. But at least he's being honest we cannot be making decisions based on a lack of data and a lack of science. But we do have is quite a bit of science out there. Showing the dangers of mass. Whether it's the high co two levels with a collection of bacteria viruses that are collecting around the face and a very moist space. All of those things are at play in these school meetings. Don't you wish you could just bring in the former head of the cdc in standing right next to you when you're in these and say but don't take my word. How about the former head of the cdc that by the way got us into the middle of this entire mess. That's the world we live in. And as though. I keep running circles around this desk and you know screaming victory laps and talking about how the fact we told you so. I told you this was all going to happen. Knew this was the case somehow. We're living in this really weird strange world word just doesn't seem to matter if you like that clip and be sure to check out our live broadcast of the high wire every thursday.

"Meanwhile the delta variant is ripping through the country. But it's not killing people at the pace that the alpha invade ovarian stint hundred and twenty four thousand new cases yesterday a total of five hundred fifty eight deaths. We mourn every debt. Of course that's not to make light of the five hundred and fifty three people who died yesterday according to new york times far down. It's a spike. Guess what it's not impacting children. It is not impacting children. Yes there are a tiny number of new children cases across the united states. And that's terrible thing but it's like all the other terrible illnesses that affect children and they break our heart but there's no reason for parents to paddock and so in dallas children are by order. The governor supposed to be going to school massless and the dallas superintendent ordered all students to wear masks in school buildings and on buses. There is no science for school. masking. That's what i discussed with dr fatty yesterday. Promised to go back and look at it. Everybody knows wall street journal story today by the two doctors when everywhere in the world parents.

I think your guest raises a very important part. There's been very few studies at really are compelling in that setting of the classroom. We did a number studies. When i was there. Just in fix settings to recognize it if you aerosolize virus through a mask and then the recipient had a mask and these were all dummies in rooms that were ventilated to a different degree. You could have an impact on the amount of virus. It went from one to another. But that's not to say in a real life scenario that that's efficacious in the classroom.

"Republicans in the house foreign affairs committee has released a report. Focusing focusing on the origins of the cove in nineteen pandemic zeroed in on the lab lake erie citing information about changes in safety protocols and requests for an overhaul of a hazardous waste treatment. System at the wuhan institute of neurology. The report says the virus may have been accidentally released sometime prior to september twenty nineteen declan garvey associate editor at the dispatch joins us for this latest report. Thanks for joining us. Declan thank you so much for having me wanted to talk about this. Report on the origins of cove in nineteen republicans in the house or an affairs committee released a report this week. That focused a lot more on this whole notion of the leak theory basically. We're looking at the wuhan institute of virology and basically the report says that things went amiss there and that's where the virus got leaked out so declan walk us through some of what we're seeing in this report. This is an addendum to report. They already put out as i mentioned this. Focus more on that lab leak theory part exactly. Yep so. This is a report from house. Republicans on the foreign affairs committee particularly representative michael mcfaul from texas who is the ranking member. There and this committee has been tasked over the past. Really since the beginning of the pandemic have been tasked with digging into research and available evidence as to the origins of the corona virus. And obviously you know we've seen that for much of the first part of the pandemic the first several months the wet market or animal to human transmission theory was kind of the most common and most widely accepted version of events that has since shifted in recent months not definitively one way or the other but that a closer look at a leak from this laboratory is warranted and so this addendum to the report. That was released earlier this week. It doesn't come to any definitive conclusions and the intelligence committee has not officially come to any definitive conclusions. But it does point to a lot of evidence that is piling up and circumstantial and otherwise that kind of points to this coming from a lab and that it emerged earlier than both we in the united states and the officials in china at the time had made clear. And so we. Now have circumstantial evidence that as early as september of twenty nineteen that this virus could've have been escaping from the laboratory and then causing pain. You know several months earlier than than china admit. And that's and that's important to know right there. You know. I evolved available evidence that we have seen right now. I do agree in that sense. What the report. It is time to move on from the wet market as being where it all popped up. That's probably one of the first super spreader events that occurred with all of this but it doesn't seem like it did originate there and you're right. The report points to sometime in late. August early september. There might have been that leak there at the lab and then that's kind of what started setting into motion. What we've gone through subsequently. Tell us a little bit more about stuff that was going on at the wuhan institute of neurology where they you know. They focus a lot on Different things air conditioning systems renovations that they were doing their things that weren't being done up to the books basically and and then they think that that could have played a role in it as well. Absolutely yeah so. The report details that they will have institute of technology replaced. Its waste treatment systems and central air conditioning systems. Were renovating them around. The middle of twenty nineteen late summer early fall and that matches up pretty well with this time. Line that not only house. Republican report points to but former cdc director robert redfield several months ago mentioned that he believed that this was closer to the actual time. Line this late..

"But the interesting thing is when we talked to a number of government officials across the white house the health agencies elsewhere in government. Most people did not know the extent of his condition. Most people even in the white house even in his administration were kept in the dark when we asked a number of people. How did you find out the president was sick. Did someone call you. Did you get briefed. They said no. I found out from his twitter. I i woke up and saw the news from his twitter. So that's that's just an indication of how bad the communication was all around that weekend. And i even remember reporting at the time and talking to people at the white house who were so frustrated because they weren't getting instructions on how to protect themselves. What the protocols were at work if you remember. It wasn't just the president. There was a massive outbreak at the white house that weekend. Of course we report. When he goes that weekend he gets access to this. Monoclonal antibody from regeneration. Which wasn't authorized for use. At the time he gets this these great exceptions made for him. He makes a rapid improvement from there and we also reported that his doctors did not want him to leave the hospital when he did. He had only been in the hospital for four days at that point and he's in his late seventies he's obese. He doesn't exercise very much so he had ticked a number of these high risk category. So they're worried like yes. He's making an improvement but he could also have a backslide or organ failure because that happens with a lot of patients like him but at that point he's completely defiant and insists on going back to the white house. I mean in terms of the special treatment to go. Because i was politically important. He exceptions made almost at the level of of what sort of the fda suddenly grant extra new approval to drugs. That hadn't been tried before or with these drugs. Some people were getting. The monoclonal. Antibody wasn't available to the general public at the time. A drug like from desert veer was authorized for use but there were constant shortages of it. He got access to that. He got access to decks and zone which is a widely available steroid so a lot of patients can get access to that. But i think just the level of care he got and the fact that he was able to get access to this combination of drugs is something that would be unavailable to pretty much any other person you describe in the book. How one senior health official the director of the centers for disease control robert redfield. Will you say that that figure robbery iffy was doing at that time. He was praying the entire time. The president was in the hospital and he was also consulting with president. Trump's physician sean conley. Who's who was the white house physician at the time about his treatment. He and redfield was the one who told conley. Trump should not be leaving the hospital right now and conley said i know but he won't listen to me. He's really he's determined to leave. So redfield is praying this entire weekend. Not only that the president recovers but that he'll come and he'll have a moment of humility and he's going to finally tell people. This is serious. Where a mask. And protect yourself. If i can get it in the first lady and my son can all get it than anyone can get it. And he talks to some of the other doctors on the task force and they share his optimism. That if this isn't the turning point that nothing is going to be at..

That opinion would have resulted in a Facebook block in castigation of Stewart by the media as a conspiracy theorist, or perhaps even a racist.

Former CDC director Robert Redfield received death threats from fellow scientists for a CNN interview in March, when he called for a thorough and Investigation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

But the overwhelming majority of these are not on full scholarship there on partial scholarship and approximately 30% of the student athletes do not receive athletic aid. He says. Other states, including that state up north have similar legislation, either pending or set to go into effect in Ohio needs the bill. So Colleges and universities can effectively compete. They hopes for the bill to be passed in Ohio by July. 1st State representative Larry Householder says he's innocent of federal bribery charges and will not resign. On Tuesday, Householder defended himself at a hearing to determine if he should be expelled and asserted his innocence. Only the charges unfounded, saying he'd never taken a bribe in his life. To say this resolution pending before this committee is unprecedented. Frankly, it's that's an understatement. Ohio ones were traveling around and horse and buggies. The last time the House exercise his authority to expel a member how silver lost his speakership last year after being accused with four others of accepting $61 million in bribes to help pass an energy bill that bailed out two nuclear power plants.

"First time. North korea has launched ballistic missiles in the year and it is a clear violation of un security council resolutions and follows the launch of two cruise missiles over the weekend the too short range ballistic missiles traveling nearly three hundred miles falling into the sea of japan. Japan calling the launches a threat to peace and security as they prepare for the olympics. This is the first significant tested. The biden administration after years of the trump administration failing to make any progress in the denuclearization of north korea after those well-publicized summits and it comes after testimony from a top. Us commander who said north korea's achieved over having success in its quest to threaten the us atop us. Commander shall not be named us. Commander who said north korea's achieved alarming success in its quest to threaten the us homeland with nuclear armed icbm's and they may resume those testing of larger missiles. The biden administration says it is committed to diplomacy. I don't understand the comp- it's based on nothing. I don't even know if they actually launched missiles and what the hell was that. Sad ass sound effect. They were using. What is this martha track. That's not a missile warning martha. You're listening to morning robin. This is the first time north korea's missile ballistic missiles in the year and it is a clear violation of un security. No no no lady. This is the sound effect. That's the one you want. You want to scare people okay. So magical north korea with top military officials saying oh yeah breaking news missiles And then over on cnn had an interview with the former cdc director longtime cdc guy. Robert redfield this is actually quite funny. here's the nbc report about it. The race to vaccinate comes amid a growing debate over the origin of covid former. Cdc director robert redfield now says he believes. The virus came from a chinese laboratory. I am of the point of view that i still think. The most likely ideology of this pathogen and wuhan was from a laboratory escaped. The other people don't believe that that's fine. Dr pfau chief says many disagree. The alternative explanation which most public health individuals go by is that this virus was actually circulating in china. A likely wuhan for a month or more before they were clinically recognized the. Who could way next flat kellyanne. Oh yeah no no. He's he's a he actually. Just there agreed with what redfield said it made. It is also a back because listen again for a month or more memorial that this virus was actually circulating in china. A likely wuhan for a month old war before they were clinically recognized the. Who could weigh in next week as we learn from the past in hopes of protecting the future the whole the the interview itself that sanjay gupta did. I'd like to share it with you because there's it's a little long as a two and a half minutes but they. They packaged this. They put in scary music. It sanjay gupta all kind of like you know with a with an intro. That has you know it's difficult for him. Because he's so trusted. Robert redfield and now this guy is saying something contrary to counter to any official narrative and it c. n. n. Why are they even airing this. This is what i don't understand. What is the mission is. This is not because of news any idea. Well i can't. I think this is all part of the great reset and the gruesome. Yeah i cannot to reese. I think we've missed the point on this thing. It's great reset is to reset to pre trump not to reset to a new world order. Anything else that's already underway in fact it was underway and doing well until trump came along and screwed things up. Okay how about this. The new world order is like a ratchet and we just had to go click. Click click back for for clicks and ratchet back up again. That would be one way of looking at it. Okay but the point is is that the great reset is the reset get to back to. Pre trump does why the north korea thing is. We're trying to reset that. It sounds like to me dismissal. They sent up some missiles and three hundred now. So what yes like. Soundlessly didn't even sound cool. Besides that all these things seemed to be just trying to reset back on track back on track back on track. That was when obama was was pushing us in that direction. know hillary should've been elected and we'd all be running under some states would even exist. Perhaps so if should there ever should there be some you know. True plans of Of a globalist. And of course if you look around you can see. There's lots of plans but if there really was some big plant it was so big. They can't it. Seems like it couldn't be adopted for this four year period so they can't improvise. They have to go back and start with afghanistan. Get the oil from syria. They can't improvise good point can't improvise and it may be because the plan is too big or there's no way to communicate or two. Maybe this is a one hundred year plan like trust the plan. See it's like you trust the plan. So why this is now happening with with Sanjay gupta and redfield is mysterious. But i'd like to listen dr redfield and we sat down to talk. He wanted to start at the beginning. The origins of this fires what he believe actually transpired notice. He wanted to start at the beginning. Take a lesson. Guess.

I'm Ed Baxter, this is Bloomberg. Brian All right, Ed. Thanks very much. Let's get to Anna hon Equity strategist at Wells Fargo Securities. Anna, It's to me. It was ah, pretty solid session on Wall Street. Very good Breadth. Equal. Weight s and P 500 was up 0.8%. It was a lot better than the benchmark itself, which gave us a flat reading on the Russell 2000 was up 1.8% so Sort of broadening out of the market was very much evident today. I put it to you. The bull thesis is intact. Tear it apart. Well, it seems like that definitely are positive drivers of the market. You know, As you said, the market has been quite resilient even with a worsening covert situation, rising hospitalization you guys mentioned earlier, a little bit of a Lower than expected distribution of the vaccine. But you know, on the other hand, we had that blue sweep and that raised hopes of additional stimulus coming down the pipeline. And you saw recently some positive news on the manufacturing data both and services and manufacturing IAS. Um I think these air you know the positive things that the market is choosing to emphasize And that's why you're sitting this rally, especially led by the cyclicals, energy materials and in the discretionary sector. Andre. I noticed, he said that that's what the market's choosing to look at The other things that the choosing to ignore, which could be negative. I think you call them the elephants in the room. Things like higher corporate taxes and fed tapering and perhaps more regulation and policy changes, too. Either all big risk that we can't ignore. And I and I think that there's something that we sort of put to the side or these further down the road because right now the focus at least, um you know, consensus Wise is on the recovery. It's doing as much as we can to stimulate the economy to add jobs. We are suspicious that you know the raising corporate taxes. That may be part of the Democratic popcorn, but probably not the most immediate concern, So I think the market that way is able to kind of separate the time frame off those two and right now it's it's while we got the good news, the market is choosing to see that Yeah, It's kind of like the putting the cart before the horse. You know, you've got to go through a period of time. Those issues that you raise seem like they might be 2022 issues or 2023. There's something else there's going to be a big push in the United States. Tol raise wages for those at the lower end, so it's not only higher corporate taxes which could hurt Corporates, but Gonna be enormous pressure on sharing the wealth more, and that could mean lower profits. That's a great point. You know that pushed for higher wages that is going away on corporate and for us. That's the reason why as much as we do think that earnings growth will be positive quarter over quarter because things sequentially improving. We think that as this, you know this elevated expectation from investors that corporate keep really beating this higher bar. They keep setting up in up that's going to be hard to do. And once you can't meet expectations, that's when actually is conceived sort of a pullback or a headwind. So you know, we're starting that fourth quarter earnings season running right now, and I think we're going to see some big telltale signs to see how investors take it, whether it's gonna be a sell the news kind of, you know, sort of Nothing's good enough environment or where the pockets will be where we can find that value.

Will continue into Friday morning and then a drying trend starts Friday afternoon. There's no rain in the forecast for the weekend. This is fresh air. I'm Terry Gross yesterday before extremist pro Trump rioters, many without masks stormed the capital building. I recorded an interview about the mistakes. Missed opportunities and behind the scenes struggles that allow the Corona virus to spread out of control across the U. S. The virus doesn't care about politics or the future of our democracy. The covert numbers are spiking and a new, more deadly strain has shown up in the US Yesterday we broke another single day record for covert deaths in the U. S. 3963 I spoke with Lawrence right about his new article, The Plague year, which is published in the current issue of the New Yorker. His article helps answer the question. Why is it that America accounts for 20% of all covert death? Although America has only 4% of the world's population. A few years ago. And what now seems like oppression move right started working on a novel about a flu pandemic caused by a virus that kills 45% of the people it infects. By the time the novel was published last April, we were living through the covert pandemic. There are many epidemiological and political parallels between what he imagined in his novel called the End of October, and what has happened in reality, he did a lot of research for the novel that has contributed to his reporting. Right, has also reported extensively on terrorism. He want a Pulitzer Prize for his 2000 book, the Looming Tower, Al Qaeda and the Road to 9 11. It was adapted into a Who's Syria's starring Jeff Daniels and Alec Baldwin. Right, is also the author of a book investigating Scientology called Going Clear Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief, which was adapted into an HBO documentary. Right, is a staff writer for the New Yorker. Lawrence, right. Welcome back to fresh air, so planning around. The virus has been very chaotic under the Trump administration. President Biden and his administration or about to take over, do you? Do you know what the reaction is within the CDC? That Trump is leaving. Uh, e can't quote any of my sources. But I could tell you that they feel like the fever has broken and you know the C D. C. You know, when I was a young reporter, I did several stories out of the Center for Disease Control. I lived in Atlanta. I thought it was a noble institution. It was the example of enlightened government at its best and above all other health institutions in the world. You know it had the greatest reputation. The people who worked there. You know, I thought they were just so remarkable. They were brave. They go off into these disease hot spots that I wouldn't want to get close to. They were brilliant and and humble and to see that proud institutions so handy caps so brought down so low. It's just heartbreaking. So you know it's time for new leadership, not just at the national level, but at the CDC and the people that work there should be given the opportunity to do what they do best. You write about moments when events might have turned out differently, turning points in the pandemic. One of the early ones was when the head of the Chinese CDC, George Frugal Assure the head of the American CDC, Robert Redfield, that there was no evidence of human to human transmission of the virus that each Case arose from exposure. To exotic game at markets in China. Redfield was skeptical and offered to send a CDC team to China to help But that never happened. Why not? Well, you know, this is a question for the Chinese. But, you know, the same thing happened with er SARS outbreak in 2003 when when that disease of have appeared Chinese hid symptomatic patients from world health authorities. They took him out of hospitals and put them into ambulances and check them into hotels. On new health rules were written to try to address that kind of cover up and once again when presented with a novel virus. In this case, the Chinese did something very similar. They dissembled about the nature of the disease. Redfield even question his counterpart in that first call on January 3rd because several family members were ill at the same time, and where they all in the same wet market and Wuhan contacting wild game it seemed unlikely but Gal assured him that there was no human to human transmission. The other thing Redfield wanted to send a team into China to help out but also discern where this virus came from. And what were his distinctive characteristics. Gal said. You know that he was Not able to invite him. But, you know, appeal to higher authorities, which Redfield did repeatedly, as did our secretary of state and others, and the Chinese would never allow that. Had that happened. Redfield is convinced that he would have learned in early January that this disease was spread through asymptomatic transmission. In other words, people who don't seem to be sick are carrying the virus and spreading it. And a zit turns out 50 to 70% of the people who are affected by this virus are in that category. Had we known that we would have addressed the question of asymptomatic transmission early on, but we really didn't know it definitively until the end of February. One of the people who you write about met. Pottenger was a deputy national security advisor who became aware of the virus early on. Can you talk about who he is and how he was trying to get the government to start preparing For the pandemic. Mad Pottenger was, I guess it's notable that he was AH, Reporter hey had worked for Reuters and Wall Street Journal in China when the SARS epidemic broke out in 2003. And then he at the age of 32, he joined the Marines surprising everybody spent several tourism in Afghanistan and then he was a protege of Michael Flynn, who was the first national security adviser in the Trump White House. So Flynn was out practically overnight, but Pottenger stayed through five other national security advisers. And quietly became one of the most important voices in American foreign policy. Early on at the outbreak of the You know this new virus in China, He began to monitor Chinese social media. He speaks fluent Mandarin. So he was seeing a big difference between with his Chinese government was saying and what was going on? In social media, and then he went to a Chinese New Year party with a lot of Chinese dissidents and former China diplomats and there was a lot of alarm among those people. So he started calling his old sources. Doctors who are working in China and so on and getting a totally different picture. This is at a time when the American intelligence community was essentially uninterested in this virus. And so it was Pottenger, who arranged the first what became the Corona task force. Bringing elements of the government together to talk about how to address this, and eventually they were meeting every single day. So I think many of the things that have happened that were effective. The travel ban the advocacy from mass and so on and and for put promoting our operation warp speed. Matt Pottenger.

"Welcome to the thick. This is a podcast about politics. Race and culture from a poc perspective. I might gain a wholesome and today. We have a special guest to close out our year. Joining us from my. Gosh i love michigan. Love ann arbor. Dr abdul el-sayed. He's a physician epidemiologist. He's author of the book healing politics and all round fabulous human beings. So welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to be here. I feel like. I'm sitting in the computer version of my grandmother. Salonen alexandria so that's the vibe. I'm going for right here. oh. I love it. That was like perfect respect okay. What is grandma serving. What are we drinking. Tea or coffee or it'd probably be minty. Yes okay awesome. It'd probably be a selection of different cakes that you picked up from the local bakery. And i would always. I'm not a big drinker. And i didn't really discover coffee until after my grandmother had passed so i would always have raw cane juice that you can get freshly squeezed down the street as ought always pick it up and they'd serve it in this little baggie so it wasn't like it was like a bag you with a straw. That's the field we're going for here. We got it right. I'm so there of course. We are recording this in early december. So just take a note on that listeners. You know things might have changed in the news cycle where assuming that democracy will still have survived. But that's just a no for you. So abdul public health expert the former health commissioner for the city of detroit we are going into a winter. That cdc director. Dr robert redfield has worn. The reality is december. January and february are going to be rough times. I actually believe they're going to be the most difficult. I'm in the public health history of this nation. I'm a survivor. I'm public about that. So i have all kinds of feelings about this because at this point now. Early december win. We're recording this. Two hundred seventy six thousand people more than that have been killed by covid. Nineteen the coronavirus has exposed so many tributes in terms of structural poverty. Racism power black and latino working class communities you know have been devastated and yet also been in this country functioning in your book you write quote one of the abiding truisms in epidemiology is that the poor will always suffer more and worse. Yeah so we're clearly seeing this. A lot of us are thinking about the vaccine and what the vaccine looks like when we're thinking of the context of structural inequality and racism. So give us your sense. A lot of people are like okay with there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes but i'm more circumspect. We're still in this for the long haul. But i don't know you tell me. How should we be feeling about what's happening right now while i'll tell you this we didn't have to be here. And when we think about an epidemic and what creates an epidemic. I want folks to understand that while a virus is naturally and there's very little you can do to stop the epidemic or the pandemic that follows is a function of the choices we as a society make both before that virus emerges while virus is spreading and after that virus has taken its toll and right now. I'm feeling some kind of way about the choices that we have made the choices and that we are making. And i am optimistic about the potential for a vaccine and what a vaccine could do to halt the near exponential spread of this virus. But at the same time. Right when i look at all that has come before it. And the fact that we could not as a society invest in any sort of collective action right to bring down this virus. We could not come together. We could not see each other as worthy of our protection by doing something as simple as wearing a mask. We could not invest in the means of public health. I'm really quite worried. And i'm really frustrated. And so this virus. I think tells us something about ourselves as a society and what we need to do to be able to truly and deeply empower low income people and people of color and rough and do so in a way that brings us together around stopping the next one because if we don't there's nothing stopping another virus from emerging another pandemic from happening. I mean we think this is sort of a once every century thing. But that's just not how it works. There is literally no reason why any viruses out there like look you know. Corona virus came this year. So we'll wait a century until the next one emerges right and we've got to get some things right before serious about protecting folks

New Jersey to begin administering COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday

"Joining me now is New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, who state is averaging nearly 5000 new covert cases per day and will receive about 76,000 vaccine doses in this first distribution, governor. Thanks for joining us again. Good to see you when Will the first shots be administered. And how do you divide these 1st 76,000 doses between the health care workers and the nursing homes? What's a good to be with you? I'm happy to say that and I'll be there Tuesday morning at University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, We will begin vaccinating our heroic health care workers. On You're absolutely right. The first batch of 76,000 split the majority toward health care workers but a good slug toward our long term care residents and staff and then with each ensuing week those of the two top priorities It'll take us a number of weeks as you could imagine toe work through the entire populations in both of those groups, But it Z going to be a big day on Tuesday morning in Newark. S O. After these initial doses are given to the health care workers nursing homes. How are you prioritizing Which group should get the next shot's Utah's governor, for example, announced school teachers would be in the first phase of vaccinations there. Do you know exactly who is next in your state? We're still working that through. I think every state is doing the same working with the CDC federal guidance the so called one a bucket, our health care workers, a long term care and then one B is a much larger group. Every one of them were the population of getting too early. We're working through that right now. Remember? Moderna is up for their emergency youth authorization this week on God willing, they get in. Then you've got not only increasing batches from Fizer. You've then got a second vaccine. Coming online with shipments each week on those larger populations will then be dealt with it. I think of it is in overlapping waves. You know we'll be doing. For instance, the second shot For health care workers long term care residents as we're beginning first shots for the broader populations in that one big group, and one of the biggest concerns now is ensuring enough residents get the vaccine to control coverage spread. A survey from your Health department in mid October found that Fewer than half of New Jersey's nurses would definitely or probably get vaccinated. What are you telling residents skeptical of taking the vaccine? Even nurses won't get it. Yeah, I think the number please. God as it relates to nurses and health care workers has gone up meaningful E because I think this confidence has been building around these two vaccines now pretty much on as a drumbeat for weeks upon weeks. Listen, Martha. We've got to begin with a skeptical anti vax block, which is a minority, but they're strong. And then you've got on top of that. What Some folks sense was the politic. Politics getting involved in the development of these vaccines. I would just say to folks First of all, we're not waiting until we get them. We've already been pounding away that these air safe, they work. On day. That's a message of repeat. Right now we have had our medical folks kick the tires up and down. We believe in these vaccines. They're safe. They work. We want people to get them. And I want to turn now to the alarming number of covert cases surging nationwide. This is a great hopeful day, but including a New jersey you've had a real surge, which averaged about five. There's a new cases per day this week. As we said CDC director Robert Redfield recently warned that for the next 60 to 90 days, we're going to have more deaths per day than we had at 9 11. What's the most important thing you're telling residents to do about this pandemic? Martha, for all the good news. The light at the end of the tunnel in the vaccine exemplifies that as much as anything the next number of weeks they're gonna be held. I fear so we're begging with people Toe. Please. Please, Please don't let your guard down even when you're in private settings. We think somewhere between 60 to 80% of our transmission is in private settings right now celebrate holidays small with your immediate family. We know that stinks. But please, God, that's your down payment for a north more normal one next year. Social distancing face coverings. The basic stuff we cannot let up on the next. I think six day weeks they're gonna be really challenging, but we'll get through it, but we got to not let our guard down. In the

Real Talk on Thanksgiving Celebrations in 2020

"Is coming up here in the us and while being bombarded with headlines cdc recommendations and local alerts. That reminds you how much you should not travel this thanksgiving and only spend the holiday with people already in your household more than likely you or at least some people that you know are making plans to break or bend those recommendations in some way. No personally i do think that the best strategy is to not have indoor gatherings with people outside of our households. But i also recognize that just saying that and nothing else is like abstinence only education and as someone who grew up in texas place with some of these strictest abstinence only education regulations and some of the highest rates of teen pregnancy. I know that simply telling someone not to do something without giving them any other education or advice on what to do if they do. It is not useful so whether it's useful for you or useful in sharing with someone you are trying to convince to be more cautious. Here are some things to be aware of in some tips for still getting to celebrate in some way without putting yourself your loved ones in your community at huge risk. Starting with this from wired quotes. Cdc director robert redfield warned on a call with governors earlier this month. That small group gatherings were driving up infections. We're seeing a lot of transmission amongst families and friends in small groups. Neil seagal assistant professor in the department of health policy and management of the university of maryland. Says he adds that the social interactions people prize during the holidays. Put people at particular risk from cooking together in close proximity to multigenerational gatherings. All of these things put us at increased risk of transmission of airborne infectious disease. He says end quote so again. The safest option is to not have an indoor gathering with people outside of your household as you weigh your options for where that leaves you or how you might in advisably bend the rules. The first thing to remember is that almost everything with regards to covid. Nineteen is about risk reduction. There is no one thing that you can do. That will make you completely safe so you can't just do one thing that you're fine by the same token deciding not to take any precautions because none of them are foolproof is also an inadvisable strategy. Over on cocky dot org. Jason has been referencing the swiss cheese model a lot lately and just generally sharing some really great resources with hard data on transmission and risks. So keep an eye on over there. But the swiss cheese model is basically the idea that if you have one slice of swiss cheese something can totally get through the holes. Even with two slices of swiss cheese something could get through but the more slices you layer on top of each other the less likely anything will be able to penetrate the holes of the swiss cheese so for example if you go get a regular. Pcr testing the nasal swab. A few days before thanksgiving in it comes back negative. That is not your ticket to go. Have a maskless indoor celebration with a bunch of other people. That test was just one slice of swiss cheese and the holes are things like a false negative rate and the chance that you got infected inbetween taking the test and getting your results. That doesn't mean don't get the test it just means. You need more slices of swiss cheese. Make sure you're still wearing a mask and social distancing in your everyday activities they are able to self quarantine in between taking the test and getting results and in between getting your results and attending your thanksgiving celebration by the way. Even though the rapid tests that are becoming more available can give you your results within the hour and therefore cut out that time of needing quarantine me wait results. They are still far inaccurate than the regular ones. No other slices of cheese or precautions to take would include significantly reducing the number of people in attendance under ten if possible bonus points if you keep anyone over sixty five or otherwise high risk as a virtual attendee. Hold the event outdoors or you know maybe in a garage with the door open. Limit the amount of time that you spend their or the amount of time spent indoors for example stopping by to say hello for fifteen minutes is way better than staying for four hours or all nights travel via car not by plane bus or public transportation. Better yet don't attend anything that would require you to travel across city or state lines although if you do check the rate of transmission in your community the community that you'll be traveling to end the communities any other guests are coming from and or consider quarantine both before you leave and when you get there. Although that's a bit late to do for thanksgiving but could be a tip for future holidays.

CDC Report: Officials Knew Coronavirus Test Was Flawed But Released It Anyway

"We're also tracking the pandemic where the United States remains the world leader in cases and deaths this election week the U. S surpassed 100,000 cases per day for the first time, and today we have more of the story of how we got here. And NPR investigation has revealed news of a failure of Corona virus testing early in the pandemic. In February, a test designed by the Centers for Disease Control did not work, which set back U. S efforts now on internal investigation from the CDC, obtained by NPR shows the microbiologist who produced that test new it was flawed. And send it to the nation's labs. Anyway. Here's NPR's Dina Temple Raston. The covert tests arrived in New York City on a Friday in early February, when there were just a handful of confirmed cases in the United States that there was a little box with a few little tiny screw cap test tubes in it. That's Jennifer Rickman. She's the director and assistant commissioner of the New York City Public Health Laboratory, and she was one of the first people to learn that the cove in 19 tests the CDC sent to labs around the country. Actually didn't work. It became clear as soon as her lab technicians tried to verify the test. But the e mails from the lab stuff for saying something looks not quite right. Call us what jumped out at them. When the lab brand specimens that were supposed to be negative. The tests seem to indicate those samples contained a low level of the corona virus. It was truly an oh, crap moment like what are we going to do now? Everybody is waiting for us all over the city to have this test online. Everybody was holding on to this moment that we were going to have a test and now we don't have it and they wouldn't have it. It turns out until nearly a month later in March, which meant public health officials were hobbled from the earliest days of the pandemic health officials across the country reporting a shortage of tests. Despite promises from the federal government comes amid growing criticism that the delay in testing may have compromised the nation's ability to detect cases The CDC lab appear to have failed in a spectacular way. Though, as recently as July, the agency was still saying the test didn't have a problem. Here's CDC director Robert Redfield. When we did try to expand that test to give it to each of the local health departments, there wasn't manufacturing problem in one of the re agents that had to be corrected. That took about five weeks, But the agency's internal review suggests that isn't so It determined that the scientists who built the test used the wrong quality control procedures. The review also found problems with the lab's quality standards and problems with the management of the Latin more generally. The infectious diseases lab was run by a highly regarded scientists, Dr Stephen Lindstrom. He'd been an expert in influenza at the CDC for more than a decade and became director of the infectious Diseases lab a couple of years ago. The CDC declined to make Lindstrom available for an interview and declined to comment for the story. But Kelly Rib Lusky, director of infectious diseases at the Association of Public Health Laboratories, Said she was surprised that Lindstrom's lab would be called out on a report for something basic like quality control. That hadn't been her experience with him. I've done studies with Steve, and he's meticulous. And so the documentation failure was really surprising, So that was one thing the CDC found. A problem in the way the lab was run. The second thing that review found was that right before the test, we're going to be sent to hundreds of public labs. The lab ran a final check that showed the kids might not work. Ah, third of the time. But rather than pull the kids back, lab officials sent them out anyway. Kelly Rib less key again. The thing that hangs me up the most is probably the the 33% and not recalling you're not immediately going toe remanufacture or something at that point, because 33% is clearly a lot. To ensure this never happens again. The CDC review has recommendations for change. It sets clear criteria that must be met before the kids could be sent out rather than allowing lab directors to make a judgment call. An outside group must review all the CDC test kits before they go out. Stephen Lindstrom, for his part, no longer runs the lab and none of the same people who oversaw the making of that test. Are in charge. Now. New York's Rickman says that month they lost was crucial to the outcome in the response nationally as well as in New York City would have been different if we were able to have all the tools we needed in our toolbox earlier than we did not having the CDC tests, she said, was like building a house with just a saw and not a hammer. They needed a hammer, she said. Dina Temple Raston NPR news
