Rep. Byron Donalds Says We Should Reinvent the System on Market Principles
"There's no system keeping you down. There are incidents of stupidity. We should address and racism we should address. But if this institution and system is keeping you down, then how did you become such a tremendous success? I mean, is that why you're such a threat to these idiots on the left part of my language? Yeah. Oh, yeah, I definitely think so. I definitely think that's why and I'd go one step further. I think whether it's mark or myself or our Senator Scott or Burgess Owens or anybody else. You know, when we are out there making our arguments it goes past just Saying that God given natural law and a constitution that limits central governmental power is essential to liberty and freedom. In the prosperity of all people. It's more than that. It's also the reality that we go to step further and saying, if you look at some of the areas where the most quote unquote inequality exists. These are in areas that have largely been governed by Democratic liberal policy for almost two generations since the Civil Rights Act, and since the voting rights Act If you look at some of the communities where the left like talking about, um, um you know, black people having to wait in line from golly amount of hours or people having to wait in line for golly amount of hours. Those are typically in Democrat areas where the supervisor of elections of the Democrat and they, frankly either didn't plan through acquisition of equipment or didn't plan making sure they had additional polling places open to make sure people can vote easily. It's looking at the idea that if you believe that a black kid in America really what it is today, a poor kid in America somebody on the on the on the low end of the socio economic spectrum. Doesn't have access to the education they need. Then the solution isn't to put more money into the same system that has failed people before. It's actually reinvent the system reform the system around market principles because market principles have proven to provide more product and more service to more people at a lower cost to those people. Than any other system on the face of the planet.

"He did a great job. Of slicing baloney and adding a little nuts and bolts. Do it. And then Senator Scott was also a depth. Clever. They're each guy presented themselves so well. I hate to say it was an embarrassment of riches because it is What it is. Presidential address and a response. We've heard dozens of them in our lifetimes. Okay, but it's guy really did well. It was like watching two fighters and at the end of 10 rounds, say, jeez. This could be a draw. All right, let's let our guest respond. I I thought that the presentations were both generally good myself. In that regard again, I would tend to agree with Senator Scott far more than President Biden. But in terms of the presentation, I can't argue with what Tommy said Alan. No, I can't argue with that either, And that's exactly what I was saying. Biden set the tone tone quite different from the trump vitriol and divisiveness that seemed to pervade his speeches. He hooked onto something that he believes is in the American psyche. We need to return to a sense of normalcy. He's done that with his presidency, and I think the Republicans realized That the tone the tenor of the Times have changed, And they need to put forth a spokesman who was also by the desk in his approach. The problem, of course for any opposition party, not just the current opposition party Republicans and Senator Scott Is that the president gets all the attention, and many people turn their television off after the president finishes speaking because after all, the president is the president. Um so my guess is that you know when the polling is done on the speeches, I think that the Biden speech will be evaluated favorably by most Americans. Andre because I think it hit the right mark for where most Americans stand right now, as we get into the power political debates in the actual policies, whether they're going to get enacted or not enacted. That undoubtedly will change too. But I think all the president wanted to do with create a tone on D. I think in large measure as you point out, he achieved that, and that was reflected. In the spokesperson that the Republicans chose to make the counter speech tonight or to come back in a moment..

"On a fixed income getting a fair return on their savings and we if we monetize If we turn this debt and and fixed the problem by inflating inflation's gonna wipe out retirees and by fixed income. And it's going to really harm people at the lower income spectrum that that's the little secret story that the democrats will never tell us the horrible consequences of his out of control spending. You know i. I i look at all of this and what i see. Is that hardworking americans. Most that i know are not looking to the government to hand out things that they want. Freedom they want liberty they believe in capitalism. You know not not big spending deficit spending radical socialism. but yet. they're wha how do you possibly explain the the appeal of this. The biggest lurch in the history of this country towards socialism. I would say one word kovin and so you know because of covid all these shutdowns downs know. Congress was was very generous. We we certainly wanted to help people in need we all do but when you start doling out for example six hundred dollar just flat increases to state on employment benefits and you continue extending lawrence summers economist. If that helped the obama administration he said basically he when you stand unemployment benefits houston unemployment. And that's what's happening at six hundred dollars you stuff like five out of six workers made more unemployment than the need working right now. I think the figure still about forty percent with a three hundred dollars plus up. And so that is how you dick americans government. You can't tell these Direct payment checks so at the depths of the recession. We were down. Twenty five million jobs from the record created under president trump. Twenty five million jobs never about ten million jobs here. We sent repeatedly stimulus checks. I guess direct payment checks to one hundred and sixty six million americans and a certain percentage of americans did unfortunately maybe a growing percentage can't get used to that direct payment from the government. They realize why. Why going to work when i can make more literally sitting on my couch. And that is how democrats historically have addicted a larger and growing percentage of americans to government into them. And of course. That's what this is all about the democrats dick american government make they depend on the government and they will vote for the people. They'll guarantee more benefits. Yeah you know. Why do you think it is that an and i've noticed that you're a senator. The rolls up. His sleeves goes in keeps. Your promises works hard every day and and democrats seem to have a target on you more than other people. When do you think you're going to make a decision about running for reelection and one of the factors in decision. I don't have to make it any time soon. Honestly i wanna see how things play out. A big factor is how much of a threat do i think america Faces and truthfully. Do i really think i am the best candidate to ensure that this does not get turned over democrats. That'll weigh heavily on my mind. Even though and i meant it when i played i really was only gonna run only going to serve for two terms mean. I meant that that that would still be my preference. But i'm not going to step away if i think america's future really hangs in the balance and that i really end the best person to ensure that the seat stays republican hands.

"And when you start with that and then you realize that you have a combination of poll some of which are just gend up the one you just mentioned where we just have a small number republicans. I don't know which group did it but You have those all the time. You have some others that'll show support even when the when the polls don't halfway correctly but the truth of the matter is the until the message gets out to the public and you know. I talked about this all through the election last year until the public sees the reality rather than the the the phrases that are used the catchphrases that are not designed to make them feel it favor of everything then. We're not going to see some massive american revolt against what is clearly a of a plan that is so outrageous and so far out of what america used to that that they're going to be shocked when it's actually implemented but no it's gonna take some time and the republicans have got to do a better job with best and your take. John mclaughlin you so you started off exactly right that those media polls the cbs. Eighteen percent republican. They are same being us. I mean last night speech was surreal. It was like a hostage taking where they're sitting there with their masks on spread out around. The congressional chamber and joe biden is reading from a teleprompter. It was the most boring. It was worse than the oscars. I mean. It was unbelievable. Ratings must be a disaster. And when you look at it those polls that are coming out now with so few republicans. We talked about it last year that they were rigging the polls to suppress vote now the rigging the polls to fool on these fake policies and like like for example. Abc came out with a poll. Twenty four percent. Republicans saturday and barely had had A positive job of for by then you had nbc twenty five percent on sunday. And tell you what it's about is. We were thirty six percent of the electric last november. and they're trying to lower the polls because donald trump sixty nine percent of the republicans. Want him to run again. They would support him if he runs again. Eighty two to fifteen and nobody mentioned his name listening. That was a missed opportunity for tim. Scott but all joe biden had to say thank donald trump for the vaccines. I thanked trump for the growing economy. And he would have somewhat been perceived as uniting the country instead. He's sam begging a saying that if he spends and taxes seven trillion dollars. It's going to create jobs. Nobody believes it's. It's pretty amazing that i don't think any of them have ever thought to take out a calculator and start to do the math of what this is all costing and you know the fact that we're calling infrastructure you can define infrastructure is pre k education. You get defined. Infrastructure is free college you can define infrastructure as child daycare. You can find a defined infrastructures. Anything pretty much. Wanted to find it as i always took to be roads and bridges and the like matt towery. Look here's the problem. We have the it depends on who's defining what and the problem that we have right now. Are that the republicans have no message and no megaphone to explain exactly what you're pointing to and that is infrastructure used to be bridges and roads and now they're taking it to all types of programs that have nothing to do with infrastructure to john's point. Where's donald trump's name..

"Twenty five. And what is the treatment you've used or what have you sat down with your patients and? Not Obviously. Tells US any names. We don't WanNA. Be Inappropriate there. But what have you come up with? What's your silver bullet? If you have you found something that's been working for you and your patients. Basically Forty percent of people that have gone one even though they had. At forty or fifty percent will skate through it. So I've treated very much like other respiratory viral illnesses whether you're looking at a rhinovirus and causes a cold when looking at an influenza virus. So it's been fluids, keep your temp down stuff like that. But if people start to HAP- shortness of breath or a cough that's compromising respiratory function, then we've sent him to the emergency room of the local hospital and they've really taken taken over. So basically in terms of me prescribing. Podesta night or decks, and that zone of year or doxycycline neely medicines. I've used are staring inhalers, which would include Badescu neider or comparable agents deduct Samatha zone. So you have done that in and of your patients that have gone to the emergency room. What are they doing there? What is your local emergency rooms doing for those patients dino? Well, most of the time you're making an evaluation as to whether or not the patient needs to be admitted in if the patients admitted. Then the in that process decide whether or not patient. He's being the ICU. It's the patients in the ICU either a couple of patients transferred to hospitals where they could be put on Ben leaders if needed, I think that, I. could probably to patients put on Ben, leaders and they both recovered I at one patient was not put on a ban later he refused and he's recovered I. Think oftentimes, it's supportive care where people are being put on a bed on on out medical floor and provided IV fluids. Potentially IV antibiotics for superimposed pneumonia. Yeah.

But Doctor from what I've read about you appears as though you have, you have a Judeo Christian worldview I don't know. Is that accurate? Are you a Christian sir? Yes, that's accurate. I was in the seminary before it went into medicine. Okay. Just WanNa, make sure this. I believe that faith and fear cannot co exist and I believe today we do have a cure for the treatments that work people aren't you know people are recovering from. Cova, just saying. At huge risk of this. We have a cure or treatments that that seemed to be effective, but then we also have a cure for the fear and I think we need to stop having alarmist statements being made by Dr found she. If you want to disagree with me, it's totally fine. I'm just saying I feel like if you're the one doing those press conferences or Dr Bartlett from Texas Richard Bartlett who used to be an adviser for governor. Perry I feel like if you two were up there. We, have a different narrative is a country. Do you agree that if we had a different person sharing? Doing their pre press briefings than Dr, FAUCI. We have a different perspective to what's going on in the question was, what do I think of Dr Coaches contribution to the dialogue. I'm frustrated with it. I. Think you're right I. think that there has been a fearmongering that is doing nothing for us. If we had people out there saying, what can I do to personally strengthen myself I'd say might even see Vitamin D zinc. We'll look at some other things that we need to lose five pounds get active be exercising and for Heaven's sakes be peace.

I'm not really big into doing websites. I'm sort of I'm sort of naive when it comes to social media, but I'm learning quite a bit. Dot EU doctors. Eight final question that we'll let them get back to treating patients in. Helping get America reopened. Again. From what you've seen. From what you've experienced. From your knowledge from everything you've learned up to this point. Let's say that. Some people that have talked about covid nineteen being. The pandemic that's going to end. The world will call that a tin attitude. To guys like me that say it's this year's flu bug. Do flu maintenance like you do every year, wash your hands. Don't be Nettie yet. Don't eat glass look flagpoles don't run with scissors. Say every year, we'll call that a zero. Words people, where would you in your professional personal opinion on? This virus on that spectrum. I would put it as a five I. think it's a, it's a clear real disease. We know that there are vulnerable populations out there that the it's heartbreaking for those s i. think the fact that the population from zero to forty is so richly completely spared is extremely good news. I think we can get the kids back into school. When we get on the other side of this I. Think we're GONNA look to how will hold some people accountable and we're going to see that there are a lot of oversteps there. A lot of things that young man. Well, I appreciate your honesty with that and that's were. That's what we've been thinking. We think that it's been way overdone and unfortunately it whether when when it all shakes out I, you know I have a feeling that if this was an election year, we probably wouldn't have had quite the and hysteria that we've had. If it wasn't this crazy, we wouldn't have been able to have this great man on the chefs. Thank you so much for being here and we'll be praying for you. Thank you very much. Take care.

Don't touch your nose your eyes on because we needed one to delay the surge depressed the peak so that our healthcare facilities when be overwhelmed by the number of sick people that would come into them and we have done, we did depress the we did delayed the peak we did. Equip our health care facilities and they just changed the goalpost. We never said that we were going to try to squash the number of covid nineteen cases. Two Zero. Why would we when we know that ninety nine point, nine percent of people that get the disease will recover. The bottom line is the bureaucrats, politicians and academics have changing goalposts all. Now, what we need to do is we need to absolutely stop this from happening because we have to wait for a vaccine to be developed, and that notion is not the best place to go because her immunity is going to be a big part of the solution. We have no guarantee that we're going to get a safe effective vaccine. Now I. believe that this is a great positive thing that our listeners need to know over listeners need to know and filtered. Argue with me begin because you're you're a doctor, but I believe we really do have a cure or at least a treatment for Cova nineteen, and I, believe we have a cure for the fear. I believe that the treatment we had Dr. Bartlett. When he was talking about two hundred and thirty seven dollar treatment that involve the use of an FDA approved asthma medication. As well as a nebulizer. We've also had a hydroxy chloroquine studies that. were. There's also to data coming out and every time a doctor comes out and says, look I've treated my patients and none of them have died just had this week. A one of my clients, a Mardi his family member was treated with hydroxy, clinic didn't die. Why wire all the doctors being censored every time they're sharing about successful. It's accessible treatment of covid nineteen that happening sir. We've never practice medicine by national discussion, and that's what we're doing here. If you go back and look at the legionnaires phenomenon in Philadelphia, we didn't. Take on this discussion on a national level with Dr Fao she having a press conference saying this and this, and then Dr Burke saying this, and then every physician you stick microphone in front of their face, they say something different. What we did was we looked at all of the potential. If, you will treatments and physicians talked with one another they talked with their patients. I mean right now we know that we have the possibility I. Actually clerk might help saw beauty night as productive. Could help some decks and methods zone could help some folks. We know that percents books reservoir might be able to help relooked at Tamiflu. We're going to continue to look at these low flow oxygen versus the high powered ventilator. We need to be able to have these kind of intellectual discussions and we need to let patients and physicians. Talk things through and decide is this something you'd like to try. But what we've done is it's become such a political hot potato that we have physicians who are tearing into other physicians. You don't get to have that conversation with your patients because you aren't as smart as I am on this given issue, and so we just really must know. Now Dr. Fao Chee Newsweek reported and I'm citing all of this. But Newsweek reported it'll be on the show notes, but Dr found chief funded the controversial Wuhan lab with millions of dollars. That's Newsweek. Reporting. That's not tin foil hat dot com. That's not right. Wing Dot Com. That's not Klay Clark. Dot Com. We also that on the Gates Foundation website. We know that Dr Fauci has Has Been working closely with the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where he is listed as a member of the leadership council. Whatever that is, do you see a conflict of interest there when Dr Doughty is working closely with people like Bill Gates? Who are developing vaccines and he's the one telling everybody that there is no acceptable treatment other than vaccines. Do you see a conflict of interest? Conflict of interest for me something, it's a pretty serious charge. I think I'd have to look outs, financial strings and I don't know that Dr Fao Chia said that the only solution is going to be the vaccine. Certainly, he has endorsed and pushed it. But if you go back to his comments in March, he made the comment that there's never been a successful vaccine put together in less than twelve eighteen months. Do I think that Dr Fauci could've used more discretion as some of his comments? Yes. Do I know if he's going to financially benefit if the only answer ends up being vaccine? No I don't. Okay. How about this the National Institute of Health? Recently fired fifty four doctors all at the same time. For failing to disclose their financial connections to the Chinese. Is that a potential conflict of interest at the National Institute of Health has scientists working for them that are failing to disclose their relationship with their financial relationship with the Chinese? Why do you think about that? I do think that's a conflict of interest in I think transparency and full disclosure should take place in and I have it concerns even as I look at Gilead with its. Product Ramda's Aveer, and then we see Gilead. Having a real vested interest in hoping that hydroxy chloroquine is not accepted as a treatment because if Gilead. Rendez desert is the only potential treatment and the blocks. That's great for Gillian's stock price, and so I think that we need to be very careful about that. Especially when we start to look at the high handed censorship that was going on last week when you had physicians who are using hydroxy, Clark, simply coming for trying to share their story which did result in contrarian narrative being put on. Social Media. Gilead by the way is financed by the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, also in conjunction with George Soros. So George Soros. There we go. So doctors I only going to have a D-. A Doctor Senator here for about twenty five minutes. So I wanted to get all my bad questions out of the way because you're a doctor tomorrow questions now. So I'm going. To ask him some real questions now that I've thrown some pretty weak questions in there so well, I mean, it's exciting I i. tell you what when you have, how much are you doctoring versus initoring? How much what your life looked like up there. I'm a full time position and I probably. In a given year in terms of work units, I probably see. Do about one, hundred, fifty percent. So I'm probably do one and a half practices and then and the legislature probably about I'm GonNa get somewhere around. Maybe, seven hundred, two, thousand dollars a year. Now. How many Kobe patients if you personally traded..

"The weekend was Joe pags thanks for being here have a caller I don't know about an hour or so ago who said something about a state senator in Minnesota name Jensen he's a doctor who said the death rate from covert nineteen or corona virus or Chinese virus we're calling today might be artificially inflated this is a report by so many Scott McClellan at job the town or the center square dot com a Minnesota state senator Scott Jensen Republican from Chaska said the death count for covert nineteen might be artificially inflated a position as well as a politician Jensen said doctors are being encouraged to attribute covered nineteen as a cause of death without laboratory testing label seven interview with Chris Bergen point of view Jensen said he received a letter from the department of health telling him and other physicians to attribute covered nineteen as a cause of death without laboratory testing Jensen referring to a case in which an eighty six year old patient died that patient had pneumonia and had been exposed to covert nineteen was never tested for covered nineteen should be written on that patient's death certificate the letter read Jensen said that he would it was irregular most esoteric it's only include facts the presumptions if someone has the Monia and it's in the middle of a flu pandemic or epidemic and I don't test it for you a test for influenza I don't diagnose influenza is a cause of death Jensen said I hit this concern because those numbers might go to Minnesota's models that have been used to justify extending the stay at home waters but that's uncertain because models have been released to the public what we start talking about going into the data that goes into the modeling we have to ask ourselves the question are we being forthright are we sharing with the public Jenson said Jenson artificially inflated numbers can cause fear and also can paralyze people's ability to think for themselves very interesting extremely interesting one eight hundred five zero one seventy eighty Joe pags dot com while you ponder that only do my interview with Pete hegseth he is of course the the the the anchor of fox and friends weekend on fox news channel also an author Pete I appreciate how are you I'm doing great how are you thanks for having me do that is a smart shirt I I wish you'd told me was red day maybe I could match better look at that point everything is ready in trump's America come on all right so so you're here looks a little bit longer than it normally is mine is completely out of control good matter dealt with more stuff like this go to that showed up during covert nineteen my first her because tomorrow I can't tell you how excited I am of you got it done yet since since this whole thing no no I'm gonna keep going as long as I can't I don't have that it's going right now that I normally have a fox and friends you seem for real right now it looks good if people are looking forward to getting out there I want to get into your book American crusade our fight to stay free that's a real fight man this isn't we're not playing games this is really happening we now see people saying if you open your church in New York I will close you down maybe permanently we're seeing people in Kentucky if you go to church on Easter all take your license plate down and you'll be quarantine we see people in in in Michigan saying if you try to go to church is going to be a thousand dollar fine what the hell's going on they really are trying to take the freedoms away well because people are our elected leaders governors of the crave power especially Democrats leftists they believe you heard my governor here in Phil Murphy New Jersey when it all started he said he was asked about these restrictions to the first freedoms that we have in this country he said the bill of rights is above my pay grade and they're not even thinking about that love to start thinking about the power and control they need to get the outcome they want and what it's about health or safety everything else goes out the window the only issue we have is our declaration of independence and our constitution which in large part especially the declaration modern day leftists reject so when I wrote the book American crusade coronavirus Copa nineteen wasn't even a thing right and I I but then it's become the perfect crystallization through which you realize the huge difference between people who value freedom and that's that those of us on the right side of the spectrum and those who traffic in fear and control and those of the leftist with ripped control of the Democratic Party we don't agree with these folks these aren't your grandpa's Democrats who were in a blue dogs and reasonable just a little bit more spending this is a totalitarian mindset that says we're in control your so you're a surf and and we're working the government should tell you how to live and I break it down in the book and then really as as free citizens will fight back and every every Avenue that we have otherwise we're gonna loop that loses Republic a couple of things John F. Kennedy would be a conservative today that's a fact that also your book with pressure you of course you can see this coming but we did see you know signs of this early on but never let a serious crisis go to waste that's Rahm Emanuel favorite saying when not when the health care was taken over one six zero six of our economy was taken over they they won in there in scared us all half to death I guess they figured out of the left if I say you'll die unless you listen to me we're all gonna listen we also have all stayed over two months for god sakes exactly by the way that's what climate changes that's what that we're all going to die in ten years unless you get rid of your cars stopped flying in airplanes give up you know you get your air conditioning need me I don't eat red meat all right because right all going to die yeah it's the fear and the scare that the left uses are and if they use in the past and you mentioned Obama Obama is not good enough for modern day left to see more he didn't go far enough you member that did that the primary on the left was how quickly can we move past the llama didn't do enough and that's that's a demonstration of where we are they threw him under the bus in the D. backs which was not to me it is Pete hegseth get his book American crusade our fight to stay free and again I mean it's it's as if you knew something was coming but I but nobody saw this that it would be this big now you've talked recently about herd immunity which is a real thing are you and I are young at all for healthy enough we stay in shape we work out my mother maybe is at risk I certainly people with pre existing health health conditions or risk why didn't we say Hey you folks let's take care of you the rest of us are gonna go to work many of us might have had it and had no idea we had it and got rid of it so the other day you dared say herd immunity is a real thing let's go out there and get the virus and get rid of it Hey man you've been thrown into the Abbas big time I took a picture they're sitting at home it protected by his bubble well he tells me to get corona virus we have one out of my bubble as fast as I can I I happen to be in a in a line of work and all of knowledge this where I can do it from a sky camera at home I work in a studio in New York City when there's nobody else in there on the only host in the studio so yes I am privilege I know that right now but there are a lot of people who have to go out every day wear personal protective equipment all of that I get that but America is premised on respecting people enough to allow them to take the information they have and make choices for their own life and if we lock down for another two weeks another month we're going to shut down our economy to the point where lives people's lives a room even more than they already are and so I understand why the president took the measures that he did there was a ton of pressure to act when he's taking the right approach he said guidelines here's the guidelines guys it's the governors that say lockdown lockdown lockdown in what they say is the more cases we find the longer we have to stay locked down that's not how it works if we find new cases and people are recovering that may be an indication that the virus is spread further than we thought right most people were a symptomatic so data is a pesky things so I took a lot of heat but I'm not saying everyone should run out and try to get it I'm saying people are going to get it at some point we have to move on in our lives in healthy people should have the choice to make those decisions it can't just be target Walmart that are open I asked for stores to buy something the other day that I could have bought it at and I had to wait in line to football field lot size line at target to get it this is insane and the people get it right it is insane and I think you're absolutely right by the way every court challenge on these Gestapo like to radical moves by Michigan hell right down the road in San Antonio where I'm based they just said you can't say China virus if you say China virus or kung fu virus it's hate speech Pete I will send a forty to investigate you thank god the court system is still in place to work every challenge has been upheld I know everyone eligible first amendment has been up held me should be go ahead it's one of the biggest legacies of this president frankly is what he's done in the judiciary not just the Supreme Court but the way he's pumped judges out there it's gonna outlive him big time right and thank god we have to shield of our declaration of the constitution that's the old me there was only one party in this country and it's true it used to be bipartisan it's not anymore that knows that our rights are given to us by god and it is government's job to protect those rights not say you can have this one right now and not that one right now and that's where I love the common sense wisdom of regular people who say let me open my hair salon because I can socially distance properly in doing it and and the left loses their mind then she alternately winds and and thankfully you know Texas leads you guys get more more things right than what you hear although the big cities are getting more more blue it's American crusade actually the book American crusade or fight to stay free number one bestseller in general elections a political process going get it right now you can pre order right now it's Pete hegseth is the author and also the host of fox and friends weekend so as we're watching all of this unfold we also see the fake news doing its best to to potentiometer knob and wrong trump bad orange man bad he he delayed himself in reacting that's what we have so many cases what inspectors a new Netflix documentary that is not necessarily positive about Donald Trump infected it promotes Bill Gates who I think is there some vaccination issue with Bill Gates so we'll get to some other time but this says if China would have acted quicker he could have stopped it from leaving the country period but nobody on the left wants to acknowledge that this is only about hatred for trump is about trying to get power controlled central government what exactly is the reason behind CBS news faking a big line in grand rapids or CNN the other day just completely getting the story wrong have to apologize what do you think that's happening they have to know it doing it it's two fold I think it worked two full it's within always been there just hasn't been a social media and other checks on them and that's a number of times on the nightly news in the sixties and seventies and eighties and nineties the sin of omission was committed just like they edited bill bars answer but no one knew about it because there was no way to check it what is always it's always been who they are but then Donald Trump has accelerated their hatred by calling them out for calling them by name I talk about.

"Thurston senator Scott Weiner is going to be joining us in studio soon he should be here within I don't know five or ten minutes I wanted to give you some information though because you know when information comes out the same correct I think it's really important that we corrected in this case what we're talking about is the CDC and funding to the CDC there have been claims that have been made by a number of people including some of the democratic presidential candidates I'm not sure Bernie was one of them but Warren was Biden was Bloomberg was one that the trump administration had cut the budget of the centers for disease control and prevention the CDC that is not exactly correct and that's what I wanted to fix here the budget that Donald Trump has presented for twenty twenty one his budget request but this has not been enacted his budget request would indeed trim funding for the CDC by almost sixteen percent HHS officials say they want the CDC to focus on its core mission of preventing and controlling infectious diseases and on other emerging public health issues such as opioid abuse officials proposed to take the money that would normally go to fund individual dis from disease prevention activities and bundle it funnel it excuse me into a single block grant to states the budget says chronic diseases like heart disease stroke and diabetes have common risk factors and thus consolidating funds can help magnify the public health impact so the budget reduces overall funding from global health up for global health from five hundred seventy one million to five hundred and thirty two million in twenty twenty one officials carved out an extra fifty million for global health security those are measures aimed at disease detection and emergency but that bump was taken out of of the of the budget for the international HIV aids programs that's being cut by fifty eight million dollars and then fifty millions of the of that fifty million of that is going to the global health security now that's for twenty twenty one that's not to say that the administration has a proposed cuts to the CDC budget in the past they have Donald Trump proposed cuts to CDC in twenty twenty but it wasn't passed it was the Congress to stop it so he has asked for the CDC they're budgeting to be caught up but the Congress and we're talking about bipartisan support in the Congress for both the CDC and the N. I. H. so they wouldn't hear of having those budgets cut as a matter of fact for the twenty twenty budget the funding was increased it's also true though that in twenty eighteen the trump administration did fire key official officials who are connected to the U. S. pandemic response they were fired and they were never replaced yeah okay there's also there are also there were news reports circulating that detail the trump administration's cut by eighty percent of the CDC's program that worked in various countries to fight epidemics including China Pakistan Haiti Rwanda and Congo that was reported by The Washington Post in twenty eighteen the fact that those efforts had been scaled back I mean that's true that's real that was reported by The Washington Post that actually happened that was in twenty eighteen and so people are paying attention to that because of course China was where the corona virus outbreak originated and then it has spread globally after was first detected in Wuhan all right so there's that and I just wanted to correct it so that we understand that while he wanted to cut the funding to the CDC in twenty and twenty one it didn't if we don't have the budget yet for twenty one and the budget for twenty that cut was rejected in a bipartisan way from the Congress now we talk about how to rejuvenate it in China where is it today how many countries are afflicted does anybody know anybody anyone anyone I look this up because there were a few more that were added just today so course it originated in China you got Hong Kong you got like how you got Taiwan we also have a cases in Afghanistan Algeria Australia Austria Bahrain Alaris Belgium Brazil Cambodia Canada Croatia Denmark Estonia Egypt Finland France Georgia Germany Greece India Iran Iraq Israel Italy Japan Kuwait Lebanon Lithuania Malaysia Mexico Nepal Netherlands New Zealand Nigeria north Macedonia Norway Oman pack stab Philippines Romania Russia said marry is San Marino Singapore Spain Sri Lanka Sweden Switzerland Thailand the Republic of Korea United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States and Vietnam yeah there's a there are you know I look at the map that they have and there are very few places that are left out I see nothing in Alaska I see on the Pacific coast of South America that seems to not have been affected yet or not yet detected most of Africa has not been affected Greenland has not been affected and there are some spots in Asia and in Europe that have not yet been affected but you know it's this is changing every single day this is changing and new cases are being detected there's also I just want to say this because I read about this this morning and I was absolutely stunned the testing kits were not reliable the testing kits the CDC sent out they didn't send out nearly enough of them but they sent them to some major cities in the United States they haven't been able to use those testing kits and it's so bad and now the CDC is saying we'll go ahead and use them there's a second part of the testing kit where it could actually make a detection of murders and sars because those two are corona viruses but they've told people to go ahead and use the testing kids some US states don't want to do that they're in the process of developing their own and New York has decided that they're going to develop their own because the CDC has been so bad at providing testing kits and the importance of this because right now the numbers that we're talking about in comparison with like the the influenza which is seasonal I mean it happens every single year there are thousands and thousands and thousands of people who died there tens of thousands of people die here in the United States of America during a bad flu season it happens all the time SO in comparison to those numbers right now the mortality is minuscule but these things start somewhere and before you can take really good steps solid steps intelligence steps to thwart it the first thing you have to know is where it is how widespread it is who's got it where did they get it kind of trace it back to the vector if you possibly can to determine if most of these things are coming from China we know now that there's a case in Solano where they can make no connection with traveler any person who did travel with this individual which is kind of scary it's scaring to a scary to a lot of epidemiologists because they need to know where the this woman contracted this disease and she's in pretty bad condition right now she's a she's not in great shape that's another thing when she first sought medical assistance she wasn't tested initially for this and there are a lot of medical care providers who were exposed to her giving her health care without taking precautions for infectious disease that may have prevented this up but it may have helped to prevent them from contracting the disease and remember what we said yesterday that sometimes coronavirus is a symptomatic to somebody who has it and if it is a symptomatic the problem is that person has no idea that their contagious them have any symptoms so they don't think they're contagious we need these testing kits and we need them in widespread use so that we really can't determine how big an issue this is it'll also give us a better indication of what the real mortality rates are because if we're going by wrong data if we're going by a lesser number and then we have the cases of mortality that means that we're talking about a two to three percent mortality rate when when you actually expose the numbers of more mild cases cases that are even a symptomatic the mortality rate could come down substantially but the infectious rate the rate that's being spread of pop a spread around could become substantially higher eighty eighty eight ten is the telephone number eighty eighty eight tennis got a bill in Los Gatiss Hey bill welcome to KGO tape that thanks again for taking my call I couldn't he at once I heard about the Mexico situation where those people came back from Italy and then a lot of people I'd realize flying to Mexico before they come up through our southern border I was thinking if we had a democratic president that had you know health care Medicaid for everyone Medicare for everyone and we had relaxed borders is a lot of them seem to want could we actually handled the numbers that would come flooding in here you mean people who are eight inspections sewer flooding in yeah just people in general worrying about getting it if it really does spread around in Mexico which you could very easily they would be going to where the health care try to get their health care taking care of yeah right well first of all I think it's important to point out that I don't think anybody in the democratic field and nobody that I've ever spoken to Democrat Republican or otherwise is supportive of open borders so people want to be able to control who comes into our country and how when you're talking about infectious diseases I think especially something like this I think you have to screen people but on the other hand I gotta tell you this if there are people who are suffering in neighboring countries who are suffering and if we have a way to detect that they don't if we have a way to treat which they don't if we have a vaccine which they don't I think it is incumbent upon us because of global health concerns you know that concerns every single one of us in addition to every other country in the world we have to be able to help provide those services not here in the United States but in those countries themselves so that they can treat their own citizenry if we had a Medicare for all of course our own citizenry would be treated much better and we would know that we would have access to whatever vaccines are made available for something like this in order to control it there would not be a cost concern for individuals here in the United States listen I'm on the break here I need to take a break I think Scott Weiner may be here and if so we're going to move to that but we will talk more about corona virus we're gonna be joined by Kenneth C. Davis at the top of the one o'clock hour I can wrote a book this a couple years ago and it's called more deadly than war and it's about the Spanish flu outbreak during World War one and horrible that was and the incredible mortality rate and how that spread so he's going to be talking us with what about that then we're gonna take a break here we'll be right back with state senator Scott Wiener you're listening to KGO they're still on KGO eight ten it's.

Scott's point the biggest risk to donald trump is donald trump because we just had shannon petty peace with with a straight face as a reporter. Say It's another one of these crises corona virus. That trump didn't start himself. Well Look Tim. Scott is correct. I mean the person that is always created the most powerful for Donald trump politically is is donald trump but since his acquittal by the Senate as he's purging the government of anybody he thinks is disloyal as he is taking his revenge is he is a visceral rating the rule of law in unprecedented fashion. Interfering in criminal cases the Department of Justice his poll numbers are going up and so he is consolidating power at an alarming rate in doing so liberally. Let's talk about the Democrats and as we do. I WanNa play the Clip Bernie. Sanders campaign manager. Came on with Chris Hayes earlier on this network tonight. We'll look at that one of the reasons that I love and fight for Bernie Sanders. There's integrity and honesty. You get with him and what that means is when you ask them a direct question he gives you a direct response comes from his heart from his soul. Tells you exactly what he's thinking right and that means that sometimes you may disagree with his perspective but you know he's he's shooting straight with. He's not playing a political game. So when you ask them about. Hey how about Cuba and the Castro? Oh well he's an authoritarian. He's engaged in human rights abuses however there were some good things that happened in Cuba. We should acknowledge those two. And that's an honest answer and then other people will play political games. And that's why for instance Chris. I think over the course of this campaign. We've benefited from the fact that his stray shooting his integrity. His honesty rises above other people's efforts to try to offer political barbs and try to throw cheap shots in the kitchen sink at him that were tonight and at a CNN town hall and the last hour people to judge just said in effect here. We are as a party. We're talking about Fidel Castro. Indeed and they are and you look at travesty of a debate if you're in the business of wanting to remove Donald Trump from office. The one thing that wasn't talked at all about in that debate was trump or trumpism and so the campaign managers talking about Bernie Sanders Integrity. Is he showing integrity by not releasing his medical records? Is he showing transparency and integrity by not talking about the Price Tag associated with student? Loan Forgiveness Free Pre pre K. daycare for everybody. And there's no price tags on any of this. It's a dishonest progressivism. That's NO DIFFERENT THAN DONALD. Trump's dishonesty talking about the Mexican paid for wall it's all fantasy and so when Bernie Sanders goes out there. He starts talking about well. Here's the good sides of Fidel Castro. I think it's important to understand that there might be a constituency for that in this country but it's a really small one and it's certainly not enough to get you into an electoral college majority to win the White House. And it certainly dooms your chances in Florida. How do you process the fact that tomorrow night? We're going to have seven people on stage. Two of them are billionaires. Two of them look at real double digit poll numbers knowing that money bought those poll numbers not some inner need to have them as our next president. How do we process that well? I think they're two different cases right so first off. Mike Bloomberg was the mayor of New York City for twelve years and by any objective standard. He was one of the most competent successful leaders of large government anywhere in the world over the last quarter century. He was a profoundly successful mayor. I think it's a mistake for Democrats to attack. Somebody like Mike. Bloomberg who grew up in a middle-class circumstance and is a self made man is one of the country's greatest philanthropists and I disagree with him on a number of different issues but if you are invested in progressive causes. It's hard for me to think of anybody who has done more to advance progressivism whether it's on gun issues whether it's on climate then has Mike Bloomberg so the notion that Mike Bloomberg is on that stage somehow illegitimately is not something that I really understand. Tom Steyer has been an activist in American politics. Now for some period of years he has communicated a message. He's gotten the requisite poll numbers to be on the stage. The question will be after the South Carolina primaries. If you have eight moderate Democrats all of whom might have a greater chance of beating Donald Trump and does Bernie Sanders? Will some of those candidates get out of the race to help coalesce support around the strongest? Moderate candidate? Poor the issue right now in the Democratic primaries you cannot make an objective judgement and say Bernie Sanders is going to go down to Donald Trump in the swing states on the basis of poll numbers because the poll numbers. Don't support that in those states. But when you look at Bernie Sanders positions that we should criminalize illegal immigration. That we're going to take health insurance away from one hundred fifty million people who have private health insurance a of other issues the type of rhetoric that you saw him use on sixty minutes talking about Castro. All of these issues come together. In a way that I think objectively with James Carville said is disqualifying for somebody running for president in somebody. Who'S LIKELY TO LOSE TO DONALD TRUMP and I think that's what you're saying. A lot of panic in the democratic electorate in the democratic officeholder class in these days really focused on Steve Schmidt always a pleasure. Thank you for

"Senator Scott wieners. Bill would Bill denser housing, some single family home neighborhoods and closer to transit stations and jobs. It was delayed today in the Senate appropriations committee to wieners frustration committees, where we take it both. With vote today, we got a nine to one vote, and both bipartisan we have a path passing on the Senate floor. And I think we should let the democratic process play itself out and let the Senate boat. And that's what we're working towards baggers include tech companies and trade unions argue in favor of allowing more homes around transit stations and loosening other rules. But critics say the measure threatened to change the character of some neighborhoods, Orson traffic, and override local makers, a federal count shows, the number of homeless people increased by double digit percentages in San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Alameda counties over two years, the biggest increase wasn't Alameda County where the homeless population jumped forty three percent. More than eight thousand people, and President Trump says, if Democrats won't adopt his merit-based immigration plan. He'll get it passed after the election Trump says he wants to recruit, the most brilliant, people to live in the US through a system that rewards talent and brains, but shifting away from family based immigration system is running into resistance from Democrats and the Golden State Warriors, the Portland trailblazers in game two of their playoff series tonight in Oakland. About this. I think we're a little overconfident. You know listen it can be our last night. Everybody's like, oh, this is should be looking at the Bugsy wrap you gotta be careful.

"Because plenty of neighbors in the embarked Darrow area. Oppose the center that fight is one conflict. San Francisco politicians have walked into as they try to get homeless people off the streets and into stable housing. Another is conservative ship. It's a controversial process where a judge appoints a person or agency to care for someone who can't care for themselves. San Francisco officials say expanding conservative ship would help homeless people with severe substance abuse, problems and mental illness. The K QA dis Raquel Maria Dylan explained why getting there has been slow and bumpy recently. Mayor London breed went to Sacramento to tell state legislators about the plight of the most desperate people in her city, and she had someone from her district in mind, one gentleman in particular. He was well known to all the neighbors all the merchants all of us, the police he has serious problems. And this particular Bill, I'm fighting really hard because I want to see him get the help and the support that he needs breed says what could help this man and others is conservative ship a legal way for a person or government agency to step in and for someone with mental illness into treatment earlier this year state law established a pilot program in San Francisco to allow conservative ship for severely drug addicted people as well in order to qualify. Someone has to be held involuntarily in a hospital for psychiatric reasons. Eight times in the past year state, Senator Scott. The law. We believe that there are fifty to one hundred people on our streets who are so severely mentally ill and drug addicted can't make decisions for themselves who are dying who could benefit from a conservative ship that city officials soon realized the law is currently written applies to fewer than a dozen people in San Francisco, that's mainly because to qualify. Someone has to fail out of a sister outpatient treatment programs. I Weiner says that requirement just gets in the way of providing help he's hoping to fix this. With a new Bill that removes this requirement so conservative ship could apply.

"Warmer in Florida right down. Oh, wonderful. It's called. I just got back last night. I'm gonna talk to you about healthcare. But before I do your all you've got your finger on the pulse on what's going on in Venezuela. Because you've got so many ex pats in the sunshine state Russian troops are starting to show up in Venezuela. Senator Scott, what are we going to do? I'll ask the secretary of state about this next hour. But what are we gonna do about this? And that was him basketball team this week. I'm very concerned the Russian troops are there. The Chinese are not friends the the Maduro legislature took away the immunity for one Widodo Vietnam president yesterday. So I think that's a precursor to him being arrested. I'm very concerned about his safety. And that was his wife last week. I in DC we have got to do everything we can to continued to ratchet up. Sanctions we've got to get the Europeans to do more. We gotta make sure not one drop of oil is sold from finish weightless. So those generals don't have any more money to do anything other than what they really are. You know, they should be all seem to be doing this. But they're doing drug traffickers, but if we all that oil, then that's gonna shut down the military's ability to continue to control that country. Now Senator Scott years ago, and you're probably paying more attention to health care. I was paying attention national security. I've left the Ray administration, George H W Bush gave Noriega rope. He gave him ropy gave him rope. And then the hundred and first in the eighty second airborne showed up and Noriega was gone, and we left are we at that point. I don't know. I mean, you we have got to keep it on the table. I what you hope it's a for preschool. Transition. I think Trump is doing the right thing is direction out right chain up the pressure on on Cuba. We've got to make sure that we can we're going to implement article three and article for under the Libertad act so Americans can sue for stolen property and cable that'll put a lot more pressure on the Cuban regime. They're the key. They're the ones that are popping up right now, they're all is tied to Cubans from very concerned about the Russians and the Chinese Americans need to understand Russia and China are not our partner. They're not partner. They're not our friends. They're a competitor. They don't believe in the freedoms we have. And we've got to do everything we can to stop them worldwide. They are not our friend. So last question on this. If you wake up, and you turn on the news and the parachutes are are dropping down on Caracas and American trips or Colombian and Brazilian trips are moving into Columbia. What will be Senator Scott's reaction emotionally and intellectually? Oh, gosh. The day that d'oro leave is a day for freedom democracy. And also think about how many children are starving to death in that country right down eighty percent of the kids under five or under some nutrition family don't have money for food Medeiros starving to death. All right now. Let's switch to healthcare. Senator scott. You're the point person your healthcare executive, you know, what you're doing for a lot of the Republicans Mitch McConnell announced yesterday in President Trump or postponing an overhaul of Asia until after the court rules and after the election, but in the meantime, Democrats are proposing overhaul to Asia, they want they want to get rid of ObamaCare. They want Medicare for all what's that mean? Well, they've they've come to the same conclusion about Medicare's disaster. They know what's happened premiums have skyrocketed deductible. So skyrocketing copayments skyrocket was a complete lie. When Obama said, oh, every family's gonna save twenty five hundred dollars. No every family saw their their healthcare costs go up. So they know doesn't work, but they all they're doubling down on more government control. What I'm doing is saying we're gonna chip by chip away at how do we drive down the cost? My first Bill says that and I did this when I was in business in hospital business. I said we're not gonna pay so companies more in America than we're paying your for the exact same product. We shouldn't be doing that south here to Americans, and we're not gonna do it. So I have a Bill that.
Tim Scott announces opposition to controversial judicial nominee
"Republican Tim Scott says he will vote to block when a President Trump's picks for the federal bench. Democrats and activists say Thomas far was engaged in voter suppression of African Americans they have aggressively opposed his nomination to be district judge in North Carolina. Scott's opposition is a blow to Republicans who have made it a priority to approve Trump's judicial nominees. NPR? Congressional reporter Kelsey Snell is following all this from Capitol Hill, and Kelsey is it this issue of alleged voter suppression. That is informing Senator Scott's position it certainly appears that way. And Scott says that it is the thing that has been driving him. So for some context far has been accused by opponents of working to undermine voting rights for African American citizens. The issue Scott sites specifically goes back to FARs work on multiple campaigns for former North Carolina. Senator Jesse Helms Helms, a Republican was accused of using a program called ballot security to intimidate black voters, Scott he said he made up his mind after reviewing a nineteen Ninety-one department of Justice memo that detailed FARs work on that program. Scott also told reporters yesterday that he was reviewing that very memo in the middle of a procedural vote on the nomination for far. And this isn't the only time far has been accused of working to suppress African American votes. His opponents also point to a law far back that the courts have called the most aggressive Atari most restrictive voting law in North Carolina has seen since the era of Jim crow. Well know, what does this mean for FARs nomination? Is there any way his nomination can advance? Now that Senator Scott is saying he's going to vote. No, well, it effectively ends the nomination for this year. Arizona Senator Jeff flake told reporters today that he has serious concerns about far and he would vote against a final confirmation. Meaning that there wouldn't be enough Republican votes. Even if vice president Pence tried to come in and break a tie. What's really interesting here about flake is that he's already voting against President Trump's nominees is a kind of protest. So he's been trying to force Republican leaders to allow a vote on a Bill to protect special counsel. Rob sorry, special counsel, Robert Muller. And so he was already going to vote against the nomination. He's saying now, though, he has many reasons to oppose far. Okay. So even though the Muller nomination is unrelated this using leverage crazy things about congress things kind of blend together, though, Trump could renominate far next year when there will be more Republicans in the Senate, although he may still not get a vote in his favor from Senator Scott because Scott, again, also a Republican has opposed his one of his nominees before. Oh, yeah. An earlier this summer Scott told Senate Republicans that he would oppose another nominee. Ryan bounds who is up for a circuit court position. But that nomination was withdrawn before Scott could ever wind up voting against him. Now, he said for days that he was undecided about foreign particular. So there were people who thought that maybe Scott. Was gettable. But this is a pretty significant blow for Trump, and there are many many more nominees to come. So it's possible that they could rebound from this and Republicans could still continue down their path of approving many, many judges Kelsey Snell reporting from Capitol
