"An enormous amount of pressure has been brought to bear on the social media companies by outside forces connected with, for example, Pfizer. So Alex berenson, who is a vax skeptic, he's been a vaccine for a long time. I disagree with much of what Alex berenson has said with regard to the vaccines. I don't think that it is well founded. Journalistically or in the data. However, however, Alex berenson is reporting, and this is correct. That on August 27th, 2021, doctor Scott gottlieb, a Pfizer director with over 550,000 Twitter followers, so I'll tweet he didn't like a tweet that might hurt sales of Pfizer's mRNA vaccines. The tweet correctly explained that natural immunity after COVID infection was superior to access protection and it called on The White House to follow the science and exempt people with natural immunity from upcoming vaccine mandates. That tweet didn't come from an anti vaxxer. It came from doctor Brett Gerard, a physician who briefly followed gottlieb as head of the FDA. And the tweet actually said that if you didn't have natural immunity, she had vaccinated. It didn't matter. So gottlieb stepped in and he emailed Todd ob Boyle, a top lobbyist in Twitter's Washington office, was also Twitter's point of contact with The White House. The post said gotley was corrosive. He said, this is the kind of stuff that's corrosive. Here he draws a sweeping conclusion off a single retrospective study in Israel that hasn't been peer reviewed. But the tweet will end up going viral and driving news coverage. And this apparently resulted in Twitter acting. Through jira, an internal system Twitter used for managing complaints. Will Florida got leaves emailed to the Twitter strategic response team. That group was responsible for handling concerns from the company's most important employees and users. Please see this report from the former FDA commissioner royal wrote, failing to mention that gottlieb was a Pfizer board member. A strategic response analyst quickly found the tweet did not violate the company's misinformation rules, but Twitter wound up flagging Gerard's suite anyway, putting a misleading tag on it and preventing almost anyone from seeing it. It remains tagged even though several large studies have now confirmed that what Gerard said was actually true. A week later on September 3rd, that Lee tried to do the same thing. Complaining to a boil about a tweet from Justin Hart. Hart is a lockdown in COVID vac skeptic with about a 100,000 Twitter followers. He said sticks and stones may break my bones, but a viral pathogen with a child mortality rate of approximately zero has cost our children nearly three years of schooling hard had written. That leave objected to words, but the simple fact of the matter is that that was right. Again, this is dangerous. Now, Scott golly has been a guest on this program. Again, he was the former FDA commissioner. The fact that he was using that position and that influence behind the scenes in order to quash the opinions of others is insanity. And this is the widespread move. You find people who are in positions of influence and those people are able to pressure sort of mid level management at these big social media companies to quash informational dissemination. And then you wonder why levels of trust are so unbelievably low. That's particularly true. When you have the Pfizer CEO now admitting that immune protection from vaccines does not last for long. So the Babylon bee joke today that Pfizer is now going to create a bean suit. What are your injected with a vaccine every 12 hours until your body is entirely comprised of vaccine? That seems about correct at this point. Here's the Pfizer CEO who's admitting that the length of the durability of vaccine community is pretty low here. A lot of people are still wondering what's going to happen with COVID. Of course. And with your vaccine, how are you sort of modeling based on what you've seen this winter so far? What does that look like going forward? Look, we are dealing with a very nasty virus. Two characteristics. One, it is if you get sick even the or vaccinated, the immune protection that you are getting from those two, it doesn't last for long. And then the second it is, keeps changing, that creates even more complication. So all the things that we were originally told about the vaccine, much of that is not true. And the protective effect of the vaccine in terms of old people and obese people, it tends to lower death rates depending on how recently you got a booster. But the reality is that for younger people, natural immunity is pretty much as good. Is the stuff that we're not supposed to say on YouTube, specifically because The White House might then pressure YouTube to take it down. This is the kind of stuff that drives people up in absolute wall. And it's the reason why trust in media is low, the reason why trust in social media is low attempting to shut down the bay on these particular topics on the predicate. Of lies. Lies on everything from the evils of keeping classified documents in your closet. No one has ever done this before, to Russia, shifted the 2016 election. Two, we can't have anybody saying that vax immunity might not last for long until actually Pfizer admits that. We can't have anybody questioning whether lockdowns are a good policy. We can have Jay botticher saying that perhaps lockdowns are not good policy. We can't do that. It creates vax immunity for some od reason.

"Said that one of its reporters covering the protests was beaten and arrested by police in Shanghai on Sunday, and we'll see if that occasions the same kind of western alarm as it did when a reporter was accidentally shot in the Palestinian authority controlled areas in Israel. Calls for Xi Jinping and the ruling Communist Party to step down were mixed into protest at various locations, including in Beijing, according to CNN and social media video, which UPI is not able to verify independently. And girl over zero COVID policy had strict lockdowns force testing and digital tracking sparked into protests after a fire on Thursday in urumqi, capital of the far western region of Zhang Zhang killed ten people who had been quarantined. So basically they welded people into their houses because of the COVID quarantine. They're still doing this stuff in China. They have a zero COVID policy. The idea being that if it spreads in China, it's going to kill a lot of people. That is also because sine of X, which is their garbage vaccine. And we have vaccines here in the west that are highly effective at stopping serious disease and death, particularly for those who are really, really vulnerable. People who are above the age of 65, people who are morbidly obese, people have diabetes, you want to say about the western vaccines, the Moderna and the Pfizer vaccines. And there's a lot to say about them. And there's a lot to say about the misinformation that was put out by governments and by these companies themselves with regards to the vaccines and whether a 20 year old healthy man should take it. It's a far cry from that back to sign of acts, which was wildly ineffective and the Chinese government refused to actually apply any more effective forms of vaccine inside their own country to stop the death of its elderly citizenry. So instead they decided they were going to go for full scale zero COVID policy. Remember, never forget the left. For solidly a year was talking about how China had this thing under control. China was putting out fake statistics about how nobody had died in China. In reality, probably half a million people died in China because again, it was released in China before anybody knew what it was. It went extraordinarily wide in their reports of tens of thousands of urns that were suddenly being ordered and shipped around in Wuhan. In the middle of the pandemic, and yet China kept relying on the media to keep putting out the propaganda, there are no deaths. They kept putting out numbers saying no one has died in Wuhan, which of course was a complete lie. And the rest of the media bought it and then you started seeing people in the west mirroring China's preferences saying what we really need is a Chinese style China did it right. Man, if only we had done exactly what the Chinese did well, it is two years later and later. And China is still literally welding people inside their homes if they get COVID, so they did this. They welded people into a building in urumqi and then a fire broke out and ten people died because they were basically welded into the place. The blaze and deaths sparked accusations that the lockdowns, which had been in place in much of zhenjiang for more than three months. Hamper rescue efforts, a viral video making the rounds on Chinese social media on Saturday claim to show a woman at communication university in Nanjing, holding up a blank piece of paper before an unidentified figure took it away. The gesture spread to other students at the university and quickly became a symbol of the protests around the country with medicines calling it the white paper revolution or a four revolution that refers to the common page size that you put in your printer. Government officials and state run media have not officially commented on the protests. China on Monday announced 40,000 new COVID-19 cases that's a record high, the country faces its largest outbreak since the pandemic began. And again, because they have decided to treat zero COVID as the goal of policy. They've also shut down their economy again. So all the bad COVID policy is feeding the bad economic policy, which is feeding the unrest. It's creating a real, serious possibility of boiling over in China. According to NPR, police using pepper spray drove away demonstrators in Shanghai, who called for Xi Jinping to step down and enter one party rule, hours later, people rallied again in the same exact spot, police again broke up the demonstration, reporters saw protesters under arrest, being driven away in a bus. The protests are the most widespread show of opposition to the ruling party in fully decades. In video of a protest in Shanghai verified by the AP, chance against Xi, the most powerful leader since at least the 1980s and the CCP is Chinese Communist Party, sounded loud and clear, Xi Jinping stepped down CCP stepped down. China is still the only major country trying to stop transmission of COVID-19. It's zero COVID strategy has suspended access to neighborhoods for weeks at a time. Some cities carry out daily virus tests on millions of residents. And you gotta love how NPR covers this quote. That has kept China's infection numbers lower than those of the United States and other major countries. By public acceptance has Warren then. Okay, well, you're accepting their numbers. Why would you accept their numbers? The one thing that we know about the Wuhan virus, beyond the fact that it started in muan, which is why we're calling it the Wuhan virus, is the Chinese government new full well that there was human to human transmission of this virus as early as November of 2019. Again, Scott gottlieb, who is no hawk when it comes to anti China policy with regard to COVID. Scott golly was very, very moderate. It was friendly toward masks, friendly toward vax, friendly toward some forms of preventing people from traveling. Scott gottlieb in his book talks explicitly about the fact that there's good evidence that this thing was spreading in Wuhan in October of 2019. And the Chinese government knew it was spreading October. And they waited to tell the world that there was human human transmission until late January, which means they unleashed this thing. They unleashed this thing on the world, and still you have the media credulously reporting, false Chinese numbers about how many people have been infected. I guarantee whatever China is telling you, it's ten times worse. People who are quarantined at home in some areas, according to the according to NPR, say they lack food and medicine. Chinese rule doing amazing job. The ruling party faced public anger following the deaths of two children, whose parents had said anti virus controls hampered efforts to get medical help. So apparently, again, some kids got sick, and they couldn't get them to the hospital because they had Corona, which again, for children, is not deadly statistically speaking. A number of kids who have died of COVID in the United States is lower during the same period. The number of kids who died of pneumonia. So this is a disease that thank God has not predominantly affected the very young. And yet kids are dying in Wuhan because they won't allow people to actually leave their homes to get medical care. The current protests erupted after a fire broke out Thursday and killed the ten people in that apartment building in urumqi. That prompted an outpouring of angry questions online about whether firefighters are people trying to escape or block by locked doors or other restrictions. About 300 demonstrators gathered late Saturday in Shanghai. Most of these 25 million people were confined to their homes for almost two months, starting in late March. On a street name for urumqi, one group of protesters brought candles, flowers, and

"That. Joe are you are you up for paying 20 bucks a month for Netflix? I thought it was a thought that only went up. What price did I see it? Look, I was going up a dollar or something. I'd pay anything for Netflix, I think. Okay. They've done this in the past. I think if it's only like a dollar or $2 a month, and that is a different scenario than when they jacked prices before. And I think you're probably right. I think they have a little more price sensitivity or less price sensitivity more price elasticity than they've had in the past. Yeah. They're still not enough to watch. On the high end, it's now getting close to 20 bucks a month. And I think that there's got to be an upper limit there, especially when you start to think that at some point, the other streamers are going to have to start moving their numbers up to make any of this make any sense, you know? Well, we're lucky, obviously, because we're in a position where that's not a lot of money to us, but for what I use Netflix for that's like the greatest deal on the planet. That's like, that's like one movie, Andrew. There's so many. I've saw a great Jane campion movie about John Keats, I saw a power that's another Jane camping at power. I mean, there's so much there. I saw the torso killer, which all of that happened in Times Square. Did you see that's a Ron Howard, Brian grazer? Thing. And it all happened in Times Square. This was deep, man. I mean, all you found, huh? Yeah. Times Square. Times Square is Disney. Land now. It used to be sodom and gamora, all rolled into one. Anyway, it was great. So before 4 a.m. here. But we digress. Yeah, Andrew at the Netflix is. They lost me on that shot. Really? You stopped getting Netflix because it's because it's $15? No, I'm saying it's going up to 20, but at some point, if you're going to hold on to cable and this is the other question. If you're holding onto cable plus plus, you're putting all of these services on top. It's so much more expensive. The dam is going to even just do all the streaming services right now. It's more expensive than the cable box used to be. I was thinking about that this weekend. Going through, because I've got every service. I still need more. I still need more. I need more. And I'm going to make one more confession before we get serious. I watch me TV now. And I watch. What is that? I watch gunsmoke and I watch bonanza and I watch the rifleman. I love the rifleman. I love them when he was a kid, and I love them now. Basketball, baseball, he was really cool. Went to seat and hall. Did you know that Becky chuck do you remember? All right, let's go. Sorry. Love him. Johnny Crawford. Next, on squawk pod, we're headed to China. The country is on COVID lockdown just weeks before the Beijing Olympics. What's happening on the ground with CNBC's unisun, and how China can rework its approach to the pandemic, with doctor Scott golly? The live virus vaccines that China initially deployed seem to be even less effective against this new variant. So they're going to need to reformulate those vaccines as other countries are going to need to as well. Get in early. Join the CNBC investing club of Jim Cramer, be among the first.

Here's Andrew Ross Sorkin. We're going to talk a little China just for a moment here because Beijing is now on high alert. This is just weeks ahead of the Winter Olympics after a case of COVID omicron variant was detected there in unison joins us now with more. Good morning. Good morning, Andrew. Well, because of that one omicron case, China has mandated that all companies that handle packages, including the one behind me. Have to make sure that they step up their disinfection. Authorities have suggested that the person who was sick was infected by mail that she received via the United States from Canada. Now this theory, which hasn't been confirmed yet by Chinese authorities, is related to a theme that we've heard quite a bit here in China that China has been pushing since the early days of the pandemic that COVID has arrived arrived in China through cold chain and imported goods, mainly cold chain food, but possibly now from documents. Now, China is an outlier in the scientific community when it comes to this, but it does show that even more heightened concerns that Beijing has about COVID spreading in the run up to the winter Olympic Games. Beijing has tightened travel restrictions even further into the capitol require COVID test to get into the city and again after entry, only three Akron cases have been confirmed in the community, but entire buildings here where the cases reside have been shut down without warning to the people inside. Now companies with facilities in nearby Tianjin such as Boeing have said that the community level lockdowns impacted their staff, of course, Tianjin is where a was first detected. Other companies complained that these new disinfection measures are raising costs and also extending delivery times by weeks. And this, of course, comes at a time when the economy is slowing down. Other bad news for anybody who had hoped to watch the Olympic Games here, the Chinese government said that they're not going to be selling tickets to the Chinese public because they consider the pandemic to be severe and complex enough that they won't be selling to Chinese spectators. In addition to, as you guys will know, not selling tickets to foreign spectators, either. Units, thank you very much. Let's bring in a guest to talk a little bit about all of these things that are happening here. We're joined right now by doctor Scott gottlieb, the former head of the FDA. Also, a CNBC contributor who serves on the boards of both Pfizer and Illumina and Scott, you hear these extreme measures that China is taking to try and prevent the spread of COVID zero tolerance as they call it. You also hear about some of these ideas that somebody got this through the mail. Does that sound at all plausible? No, it doesn't sound plausible to me. It sounds like a lot of theater. They also overnight called more than 2000 hamsters in Hong Kong and other mammals and are banning the sale of mammals as pets because there was presumably someone who contracted the virus from a hamster. Look, I don't think that this is sustainable. I don't think that they're going to be able to keep the virus out. They're playing whack a mole with it right now. It's a large country. There's a lot of people coming in and out. And one of the things is that they've restricted severely, the ability of people come in and out of China, including their own citizens, once they normalize some of that some of that movement, they're going to have this virus come into that country. And I think they ought to be thinking about how to deploy effective vaccines, get more people vaccinated, because there is some inevitability this is going to spread around the world. When you say effective vaccines, are.

"The trial found that an increase in the antibodies was slightly higher than after the third dose, but not enough to prevent the spread of a back here in the U.S., the COVID surge that's been fueled by this variant showing some signs of slowing in areas hit hard earlier, data shows New York, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C., have all seen dramatic drops in new cases and hospitalizations recently following that spike. I'm ready to oh Macron go away. Don't come back another day. Now I'm worried about another variant, but hopefully, we'll give some type of protection against the next. I mean, we've been around a long time as a species. And there have been scourges in the past. There have. But I don't know of there hasn't been that many times where something like a coronavirus keeps getting worse in terms of virulence. You know, we've got some history. That it can get endemic. The question, the question is, Scott golly was talking about this just yesterday is, you know, if you build a, if you build a vaccine that's omicron specific for the fall and in fact, we do get a new variant, you're going to be back in the soup. The question is whether you just have another version of omikron that's even less virulent in the fall. I do think by the way Joe and Becky, I don't know if you feel this way. Look at the numbers. The next two and a half weeks in this area, we may be back to sort of early December, Thanksgiving time in terms of where the virus was. Not true. Everywhere in the country. And I think that people have to appreciate there's still a back end to this. You often hear, oh, it's peaked in it. I think some people say, okay, I can go outside now and do everything I was doing exactly what I was doing before. I don't know about that. But we're getting close. Yeah. I've been doing that for a while. I mean, I'm a. Lucky to have boosters and vaccines and everything, I guess, because I don't think it's not that much different than a bad cold. I mean, it's nothing to sneeze at, so to speak, and you got to take it seriously, obviously, but the next variant, if it's similar to a Macron and keeps getting less virulent, we can live with this year after year like the flu or something. Hopefully it will be endemic at that point. We gotta hope for that. We got unless you never want to see another Broadway play or never want to, you know, I still feel bad about kids. What did Jen Psaki said something like, I take the mask off so people can understand me. It's like, yeah, well, what about your kids in school and class? It's hard. How do you get a 5 year old to wear a mask? That must be. It does. That affects the cancer. Right. Do you have to explain what about three or four? It must be tough. Kids are right. I mean, she started wearing it when she was four. And kids, I think pick up new habits, probably more easily than a lot of the rest of us do. So they're okay with it. It's not like she loves wearing it. She doesn't like when I wear it. She wants it off my face, but. Really? She's okay, was it? Listen, we need some breaking news. Straight up on Becky. This is some big news that's coming out right now. It looks like Microsoft is going to be buying Activision Blizzard. It looks like this is news that's just coming out. And just reading you through some of the headlines on this, Bobby Kodak is going to continue to serve as the CEO of Activision Blizzard, reading through some more news as this is hitting the wires right now. Microsoft's going to be acquiring Activision Blizzard for $95 a share that says in an all cash transaction that's valued at $68.7 billion. So that's a big premium guys. That's a premium of about 45%. Watching what happens with this. And obviously, there's been a lot of news gentlemen coming out about Activision Blizzard. Those shares have been down pretty sharply as this news has come out over the last several months. Andrew? I was going to say the stock down about 20 had been down about 27% in large part because of the controversy that we'd seen in The Wall Street Journal and reports about workplace culture. I would argue to you, Microsoft buying this company at this price is a bit of a rebuff, if you will about some of those reports or at least an acceptance that the culture is acceptable to them. Of course, they've had their own challenges just last week, saying that they were going to be looking into their own workplace culture, but this does appear to be a big win for Bobby Kodak. Of course, the big question that I'm looking at right now is just whether regulators will ultimately approve a transaction like this under the sort of traditional antitrust theory between Microsoft and Activision is still a very small market share. This is a very fractured marketplace, but you've seen the Biden administration. I take a much more aggressive approach to antitrust in a much more sort of all encompassing approach. Meanwhile, Microsoft has remained largely outside of the sort of target of Washington in large parts because it dealt with that. It's a metaverse. It's a decades ago. Number one, it's a metaverse play. I don't know. We're all going to be playing huge metaverse play. I think that's this. Has hinted at this. I don't know whether you guys saw the journal this morning, but I talk about a kitchen sink cleaning house. Did you know that it was like how many people were at Activision that did you see that today in the journal? How many people did? So they're cleaning the decks and now it's all dressed up, I guess and ready for sale, but how many people do they say they had to deal with they got rid of like dozens of people and then they actually had to speak to or take action on another 40 or 50 people so it's kind of interesting. They get that done. And then this happens. And Bobby still still left standing, but a lot of people are off with their heads. They're done at that company. So maybe it's maybe it's all taken care of. Right. You want to talk about zero tolerance and watching a changing culture. That's something that Bobby's been talking about for a while is making sure that they are very clear and upfront with some of these things. There's obviously been pressure to do just that. And as Andrew mentioned, Microsoft has its own issues to deal with. They've got an external investigation that they announced last week that's been brought there because of shareholder pressure to come up against that too. But this is a big deal. And I think you're right, Joe to go straight to the metaverse. And try and think about what this means. If you have this content, and you have the resources of Microsoft to put it back together. I mean, I think that that is pretty important probably too. And why you would see such a big premium, although, again, the stock Activision Blizzard down by about 27% year to date. $95 a share does put that back up in a big way kind of looking at the overall valuation of the company too. Look, I was going to make two other points related to this, which is a catapult to them way ahead of Facebook almost immediately if you think about it in terms of just the context here, facebooks wanted to dominate the metaverse by having these games. I think that's almost required component now of the metaverse. I should also tell you, I'm trying to look through what's coming out here. Source is telling me and I imagine we're going to be seeing this soon that there is a breakup fee and it is huge. Something on the order of $3 billion, which would demonstrate their confidence that Washington would accept a transaction like this. Again, though, I think it's going to be very it's going to be a long slog and really puts Microsoft back in the spotlight in Washington in a way that it hasn't been in many, many years. Yeah, Washington, they regulators have kind of been spoiling for a fight. And you wonder if this is something that they're going to go after. You've seen a lot of other companies that feel like, okay, we're not even going to try and make a deal in this environment. You wonder what the test is going to be, what the test case.

"And lily drugs, but they're building it back up. Guys, Meg, we were talking a little bit earlier about this idea of whether you could get the defense production act in place, and that could actually create a lot more volume of the Pfizer drug. As you just said, 10 million doses by the summer, 10 million doses by the summer, maybe too late. When we talk to Scott golly about this, he seems to suggest there was still a 6 month lag in terms of even if you started right now. It would take 6 months to really be able to ramp properly. The question is, is if you start now, it may be that by the time of the summer, you could get to a 100 million if you really went to it. Is there a resistance by Pfizer to do that? Well, certainly companies never like when the defense production act is used to force them to do something. Sometimes it could be beneficial to them because it puts them in the front of the line for materials and supplies. We saw that with the vaccines it was helpful to the companies if they were on that end, but it also has knocked down effects. Other drugs get pushed to the side. So it's something that people in the industry hope is used very precisely. In terms of the supply, though, Pfizer did increase its full year forecast for supply for the world to a 120 million courses yesterday up from 80 million. The U.S. is only order 10 million at this point. Could we see them increase that and when could more get delivered is a big question, but Doctor Fauci did talk yesterday about how complicated this drug is to manufacture and that it does have that time of 6 to 8 months for the active ingredient. And then finally there's an incentive question, which you just raised, which is those that are unvaccinated are almost I don't want to say have a greater incentive, but in some ways they will probably have access to this drug before those who are vaccinated. It's sort of the anti incentive to get vaccinated. I don't know if you read yesterday Chapman online, had made this statement that got a lot of people very upset, which was that he said, basically, that unvaccinated people should not be taken care of. I don't think anybody agrees with that, but how do you change that incentive structure in this case? Yeah, it's a real problem. It's an ethical question, but something we saw with the antibody drugs when they were in short supply too. If you got a prioritize the highest risk folks, that's folks who don't have the vaccine, so we'll have to see how that plays out in these treatment guidelines. Complicated stuff. Meg, thank you. Appreciate it. We have something of a holiday tradition on squawk box, checking in annually with the top secret military mission at norad, the North American aerospace defense command. Which fields thousands of tips and questions from the public about a certain flying object every December 24th. Santa was spotted over Petersen Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Let's get back to Becky. The recent boom in space tourism has the skies more crowded than ever, but that isn't deterring our next guest and her team from their mission of tracking Santa's voyage around the world on Christmas Eve. Let's welcome this morning, U.S. Air Force captain, sable Brown, who is a public affairs officer at the North American aerospace defense command, which is otherwise known as norad. She's also a member of the norad track Santa team. This, by the way, is the 66th year that norad is going to be tracking Santa's global journey and captain, thank you for being with us today. I would imagine that this job has gotten a lot more difficult over those 66 years because there's so much more stuff in the air, including all of the stuff that's in space right now. How are you guys doing this? How are you handling it? Well, thank you for having me, Becky, and yes, the job of watching the United States and Canada's skies is a little bit tougher, but we're able to keep up with it by working with our partners and allies around the world and in regards to tracking Santa. It takes a lot of contributors and a lot of volunteers to get that job done and they are happy to do it every year. So how do you guys do this? Let's track through all the technology that you have to actually watch Santa as he goes around the globe because this is something little kids have been so curious about for forever. Right. And when we get children that call in the op center, we give them all the answers about how norad tracks Santa every year. And it starts when he makes his first movements out of the North Pole. The radar in the northern Canadian and northern Alaskan Arctic area track him with those north warning satellites. And then as he moves west across the international date line, are satellites can watch the infrared signature from Rudolph's red nose as he flies around the world. And when he makes it back to Canada and the United States are fighter escort pilots, make sure to give him a wave and safely escorted him through North American airspace and then he heads back home to the North Pole to get ready for next year. I know we can all follow along by watching on the Internet on the website. How many people actually call into the limestone? Back in 2019, we had over a 150,000 calls. The phone never stops ringing. What do kids say when they call in? And how did this whole thing start by the way? Well, it started back in 1955 when there was a misprinted ad for a department store saying that children can call Santa at a certain phone number. But the misprint actually led to the conad back then it was continental air defense command. The call center there, a red phone that colonel Harry shop famously picked up and he went along with the call and so did the rest of his crew all night and that's how the tradition of norad tracks Santa got started. Well, it's a great tradition and we appreciate you all keeping it up this year. We'll be watching and we know you all will too as Santa takes off on Christmas Eve. Captain Brown, thank you so much for joining us. And good luck to you and your staff with handling all these calls this year. Thank you. And happy holidays and hope to see you tracking Santa with us. Merry Christmas, we will be. I haven't seen Christmas vacation, the movie this year. That's an annual app might be my favorite. I think, just because of cousin Eddie because of Randy Quaid, but you remember where they're at the table and Clark griswold says you know sand has been spotted coming across the border there.

"34 minutes past the hour. We are live on this Labor Day morning and the government's top infectious disease expert says he believes that delivery of Covid 19 vaccine booster shots will be able to start September 20th for Americans who received Pfizer doses. Moderna's, though That may be weeks later. The Biden administration had originally identified September 20th for both the Pfizer and Moderna shot. So why is the timing on Moderna? Now up in the air. Here's Dr Anthony Fauci. The plan had been and and really still does remain in place that by the week of September, the 20th we would get the boost the program for both the fighter and the Moderna products operational, But we had always said from the very beginning that would depend On a few factors that would have to be in play one that the companies would submit to the FDA the appropriate information to allow the regulatory approach of that to be the way it should be. And then the FDA would then make a recommendation which you would follow because they are the last word in the regulatory aspect of all of this, and the advisory committee on immunization practices that advises the CDC would recommend it. What has happened is that Pfizer, one of the companies that has the M RNA has gotten the information in has been examined and things look like they're ready to go. Madonna might be actually a little bit behind that. And if they are, what you might see is rather than the simultaneous rolling out of the booster program of both those products. You may be sequential by about a week or two. I don't think that is a major issue there, but we would have liked to have seen it happen all together simultaneously. But ultimately the plan will be implemented, as was, as was originally put forward about You. Making those comments to CNN President Biden on August 18th touted boosters as a protection against the virus is more transmissible Delta variant and said Americans should consider getting a booster. Eight months after their second shot. Meanwhile, hospitals across the south are getting crushed, especially in hard hit Mississippi. That's where only about 38% of the state's three million are fully inoculated and the federal medical team arrived in Kentucky Saturday to assist hospitals there that are reaching capacity due to patient said that, according to Kentucky governor Andy Beshear, who Said the unvaccinated are likely beyond the reach of any local influencers. He suggested if friends and family possibly burn bridges to get through to some When it comes to misinformation. I really don't think this is a red or a blue issue. It is a fact versus fiction or a sometimes saying versus in saying issue. My first job in life was mucking stalls, um, at a horse farm. Taking a horse. De Wormer is crazy under any circumstance. We we are well past. I think all across America the populations that are going to listen to a government official and take The vaccine because of it. We're probably past even the point where a local official a pastor or others, where I think we're at is where people are going to have to break that Thanksgiving dinner rule. They're going to have to call or go See that person they love and care about that is unvaccinated. They're gonna have to put their relationship with that person on the line because they had never been At greater risk, and I think it's that type of caring and the person who is willing to do that. And to make that sacrifice that will finally get through to those that are not vaccinated. That's what we're seeing here in Kentucky, and we need all Americans to do it. Yes, you might lose a friend because of that conversation, but that friend might lose their life if they don't get back. That audio courtesy of NBC a little later on, we will hear from the head of well, not the head. But the former FDA commissioner and current fighter board member, Dr Scott Golly, who says The northeastern states will experience another jump in covid cases due to the highly transmissible delta variant, but it won't be as bad as what the South is experiencing. Right now. Well. The judges had temporarily shielded some Texas abortion clinics from being sued by the state's largest anti abortion group under a new law banning most abortions. The temporary restraining order was issued Friday in response to a planned Parenthood request. Although the Law remains in effect. The judge's order shields Planned Parenthood clinics specifically from whistleblower lawsuits by the nonprofit group Texas Right to Life. The Supreme Court allowed the strictest abortion law in the country to remain in force by voting 54 to deny an emergency appeal from abortion providers, But it did not rule on the law's constitutionality. Republican Senator Bill Cassidy, telling ABC news. If the law is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court will likely overturn it. However, In the meantime, he's calling it a distraction. I am pro life. But let's be clear George. The ruling on scotus was that the plaintiffs did not have standing. It had nothing to do with the constitutionality Roe v. Wade. It was only on if the plaintiffs had standing people are using it to gin up their base to distract from disastrous policies in Afghanistan. Maybe for fundraising appeals. I wish we'd focus on issues as opposed to, as opposed to theater. It was about it. They had standing nothing to do with constitutionality. I think we should move on to other issues. Well, he accepted it. So the law is being enacted Right now. Let's talk about the underlying law, which is to talk about the substance of the underlying law. It gives private citizens The right to enforce this light, actually task private citizens with enforcing this law in the Wall Street Journal came out against that this week. They called it, said an editorial calling it the Texas abortion law blunder, saying the law sets an awful precedent that conservatives should hate. California allow private citizens to sue Individuals for hate Speech or New York deputized private lawsuits against gun owners. So setting aside the standing issue What do you think of the underlying substance of the law? I think the Supreme Court will swat it away. Once it comes to them in an appropriate manner. If it is as terrible as people say it is. It will be destroyed by the Supreme Court. But to act like this is an assault upon Roe v. Wade is again something the president is doing. I think to distract from his other issues. And it is clearly not an assault upon the by the way I'm pro life. Um, but just to say the facts are this is about standing about nothing else, and the Supreme Court will decide how to affect standing before all these other things playing you don't you don't think it signals that the court is prepared to undo Roe v. Wade now so we can always talk about eventualities. We can always talk about theoretical. It makes good father. But I'm kind of a guy who is in the middle of the state in which 700,000 People don't have electricity in which we've got a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and administrations, pushing a $3.5 trillion bill, which will be to inflation what the withdrawal was to Afghanistan. Now, if you You know, in my mind, I don't think about theoretical..

It is your morning ritual. Kunst. Am 7 92 sons, most stimulating. You have to go to lunch thing. Your pig pig. What's uh huh? Yes, she makes a really good BLT. Maybe. Three things. I think you need to know. Uh, number one. Is that Daily mail discovers the Pentagon. Gave $39 million to this random charity called Ego Health Alliance. Not to random and they gave money to the Wuhan lab that created the Covid leaked it out is what I think. They gave the money. We don't know how much money was used for the actual, um For the actual uh, I guess. Covid the creation of but They got money. They gave us some of that. 39,000,002 that Wuhan lab. How this is just crazy. Uh, And then we find out that Fauci is naive. Gave the Wuhan lab edited. What I said was the exact $826,000. I believe yes, for bad coronavirus research. Second thing. I think you need to know. Scott Golly. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former head of the FDA is on the fire board came out, said Hey, Fauci, actually did. Uh, talk to world health leaders last spring about the possibility of covid being created in that Wuhan lab and and leaked out. Excuse me. Now you say this after the past, Like 10 months of people calling us crazy for we're talking about that now you say he actually talked him about it. Brief them. It's a very real possibility, but we we have to do everything we can to stop China Protect, Protect China, Uh, third thing And I think you need to know we'll do more than eight Oh, five because it's a big deal. As if your kids in camp they're probably masked up. Um Stanford did a study. And in this study Stanford says that Many Children treated in hospitals for Covid never developed symptoms. It led to over estimates of the severity of covid for kids. And they said about 45% of Covid, Uh, treated kids in hospitals were over counted. Three things I think you need to know. Yep. By the way, so now because everything is racist, everybody, if somebody does something, they don't agree with its racist. You do realize that right? You have a wacko former ESPN Chick Jamil Hill. She called Trump a white supremacists all kinds of bad things. Now that white Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Is against ending the filibuster. So and he's not for HR one. Do you know what she called him? A white supremacist. Anybody that does anything that you don't like? Is a white supremacist. And the white supremacists like No, That's that's just that's not what we are. We are listen totally different, totally different. I mean, they're offending the white supremacists. Is this actually did take place? Let me get to this story True, but that I mean, what else is there? Besides that? She literally called. She went on Twitter. Says you're a P story Democratic Senator Joe Manchin says he will not vote for an overhaul of the U. S election law. Virtually guaranteeing the failure of a top Biden administration priority. Senator Joe Manchin also restated his opposition to changing the filibuster. So Jamelle Hill retweeted that story and wrote, This is so on brand for this country. Record number of black voters show up to save this democracy only for white supremacy to be upheld by a cowardly power of hungry white dude. At Joe Manchin is a clown. Mm. So white dude. Democrat but didn't do what I wanted white supremacist Damn white people always get in the way of stuff. So there it is. White supremacist. I know I have that story too. I have that story. Yeah. Okay. Since no, no, Jack is on the line. He was wondering if they're going to charge this guy with a federal hate crime. Okay, so this this is also based in this whole race thing. I have this story. You probably didn't hear of it. Okay? Because it wasn't on the news yet. They happen to be a 41 year old white guy or white dude as Jemele, Hill says. Out in Atlanta going for a jog 41 year old white guy going for a jog. Car pulls up next to him as he's jogging. He thinks they're going to ask for directions. So he slows down and he notices the car.

Golly you used to be with the fda now talking head across networks has three times in the last two weeks. I think mentioned public trust of public health officials and he has that. Concern is a concern that i share. We need public health officials who people respect. We need public health officials. Who people know they're going to get a straight answer from them we. We actually need a public health apparatus in this country. That when they say joke people are gonna jump because they respect that they have good reason to tell us to jump and right now. We don't have that we have slow moving overly cautious public health officials who want to opine on every aspect of life. Enter at this point. We know being lobbied by outside interest groups to take certain positions and do certain things including for example we know the public health officials The cdc we're lobbied by the teachers unions to delay opening schools. We know this. We've got the paper trail to show this. This is why gottlieb is someone people focus on and listen to because gottlieb has a veneer of trust to him. He has throughout the pandemic.
