Prominent Conservatives Issue Report Rebutting Trump Election Claims
"A group of conservatives now reading from a CNN article, a group of conservatives, including prominent lawyers and retired federal judges issued a 72 page report. Categorically rebutting each of the claims made in court by former president Donald Trump in his supporters over the 2020 election results. So you've got a group of these jurists. Who are we talking about? Thomas B Griffith, retired federal appeal court judge, J Michael ludig. A guy I know, Michael McConnell, a very smart guy, and professor at Stanford University, former solicitor general Ted Olson, former U.S. senator John Danforth, and Gordon Smith. And a couple of other people. Now CNN does admit quote several of them are longtime Trump critics. So these are these are kind of never Trump jurists. And they contend, and it looks like this report. It's a 72 page report that was produced to help the January 6th committee. In other words, they're working in a sense to support the democratic narrative on this. And they say that Trump and his supporters quote had an obligation to recognize the election debate was over. Now, on what basis do they come to this remarkable conclusion? Well, it turns out, all that they do is they review in some depth, the cases that went before various courts. Now they admit this group does that many of these cases were not adjudicated. Some of them were dismissed for lack of standing or you filed it in the wrong court. You should have filed this one before the election. And this one is now moot. And so it seems to me that, I mean, I don't have difficulty believing that in those cases, filed in the immediate aftermath of the election, there was insufficient evidence there. That the election was stolen.
Title IX creating opportunities for international athletes

Who Is Dr. Andrei Illarionov, Former Adviser to Vladimir Putin?
"He is a former economic adviser to Russia's acting prime minister jago gadar, chief economic adviser to Russian prime minister Viktor Chen midin and chief economic adviser to Vladimir Putin, doctor Andre il lardo hilaria. Welcome to America first. Thank you very much. Sebastian for inviting me. You are very, very welcome. You have an illustrious resume. I have three pages worth of your qualifications in front of me. We do not have many people with your prior access inside the Kremlin speaking out on American media regarding the events occurring in Ukraine. So let's start at the beginning. Will you walk us through our millions of listeners and viewers across the country, your background before you came to the United States, your qualifications, you've studied in the UK and Austria at Stanford University. So may I ask you just to introduce yourself to our listeners? I'm going to buy my training and I spent most of my time at The Economist and studying economic policy inviting on economic policy. You mentioned some of the people whom I advise to. For almost a TSI was economic adviser to current Russian president. And that time Russia was able to have a pretty remarkable economic growth that double GDP of the country and GDP per CAPiTA was in ten years. It was a little economic miracle for the Russian economy. But it was everything in the past. Since 2008, after three years after my departure, a Russian economy went into stagnation and seeing them economic growth of Russia was not more than 1% per year on average. So instead of doubling GDP within ten years, it's a kind of 10% growth. So 7 to 8% per year country was growing about 1%. It wasn't 1% per year. Now definitely it's a crisis and the intentions of the Russian leadership and first of all of mister Putin right now is very opposite to what you have demonstrated in your initial slight when Putin was talking about a little bit about democracy, freedom or whatever. It's definitely wrong. It's Putin does not pursue this goals anymore. He's intentions are imperialistic. His intentions are conquering the neighboring country, establishing a new world
Who Is Dr. Scott Atlas?
"He is senior fellow in health policy at the Hoover institution and author, most recently of a fabulous fabulous book, a plague upon a house, my fight at the Trump White House to stop COVID from destroying America. Welcome, doctor Scott Atlas to America first. Oh, thanks for having me. I appreciate that. So we've been tried for the longest time to get you on the show, your buddy Victor Davis Hansen constantly said, yes, you gotta get him on, you gotta get him on. We're delighted to have you on. I've got a multi page multi page resume CV bio for you, so you clearly have the cres for those of our millions of listers who may not have watched you at those press conferences. Please if you would just start as we do with all of our one on one guess, give us a potted summary of who you are, your qualifications and what you are focused on as we speak. Sure. So I am a senior fellow in health policy at a policy institute at Stanford University called the Hoover institution. Where I research and work on healthcare policy solutions, I've been doing that for more than a decade full time before that I had about a 25 year history, a career in academic medicine as a professor in the school of medicine for the last 14 years before the ten years as a professor in chief of neuro radiology at Stanford University school of medicine. And I had a previous experience and the medical science that various top level medical centers in the U.S., including iterative mania, graduated from University of Chicago with my MD degree.
Would MLK Support Things Like Affirmative Action?
"Today is Martin Luther King day and we're going to be treated or perhaps subjected to the usual over the top tributes to king. Now I do admire Martin Luther King. I admire what he stood for. And I admire especially what he stood for in the critical part of his career. Early in his life, Martin Luther King was involved in some scandals, he was he had a plagiarism, scandal, for example, and he was in many ways a flawed man. I don't really need to go into that. He also became sort of radical toward the end of his life. He wanted a massive redistribution of income, he became a sort of, well, he became very close to a socialist, if not a socialist. But the one thing he never did was he never deviated from his central idea was that we as a country should be judged on our merits as individuals. In other words, in his own words, by the content of our character not the not the color of our skin. This was Martin Luther King's famous dream. This is why we have Martin Luther King day. That's what defined king. And the left now tries to imply that somehow king gave up that idea became an advocate of affirmative action, supported race based preferences. And none of this is true. In fact, I had to debate years ago with the reverend Jesse Jackson and you know this was at Stanford University. And I challenged the reverend Jackson. I said, 'cause he was like, I knew Martin Luther King, you see, he would have definitely been on board with affirmative action, and I said, well, quite apart from this kind of appeal to personal familiarity, can you point to a particular example where king does not support compensatory justice in a particular case, but a system wide nationwide system of race and ethnic preferences. Let's just say in college admissions or in job hiring or in government contracts. Absent a showing of actual discrimination show me where king advocated that. And of course he couldn't do it so he resorted to his usual deflections. Iambic pentameter, you know, those famous clearing of his throat and

Victor Davis Hanson's Take on Glenn Youngkin's Upset Victory in Virginia
"Victor Davis Hansen senior fellow at the Hoover institution at Stanford University and author most recent so many things. Anything with his name on it, buy it, but the dying citizen out now follow him at vide Hansen. Professor Hansen, welcome to America first. Thank you for having me again, Seth. So much to discuss, personal news on your front with regards to a very storied conservative publication, but let's talk about the events in Virginia of the last few days. My take is the following. I would like you to be the sanity check for this. We have seen 9 out of ten of the analyses post the young con victory have been incredibly sophomoric, very, very simplistic, basically half of them have said, this is an indictment of Donald Trump because young and isn't Trump and the other half said this is a victory for Trump because he's just like Trump and critical race theory, et cetera, et cetera. I think the truth lies somewhere in between a very cautious candidate who didn't go full America first. However, embraced a culture war issue much like president Trump, which propelled him to the top of the ticket, who is to blame or who gets the credit for this massive upset victory professor. I think you have it right. I think he ran more successfully or at least as successfully in those red counties of Virginia than Trump did. So he was able to get the base. He was able to keep the base because Trump endorsed him and he didn't no issue did he disagree with the Trump magazine. He might have downplayed abortion in the particular suburbs. But he didn't, and he thanked Trump and that he won. He said that I appreciate that. But Trump made it easier for him because let's face it, this ostracism of Trump on social media, boomeranged against Silicon Valley. Because Trump found out that when he wasn't commenting on personalities every day, that in time people are remembering his record and not what he tweeted. And his tweets bothered some people. Some people they encouraged. But the point I'm making is people looked at Biden's disaster's first 9 and a half months and they've said this was all self created. The opposite of what Trump did. So Trump's stature has risen the more I don't know how to say it because it's a contradiction or paradox, the more remote. It's almost as a Trump is everywhere in the mind of the Democrats, but he's nowhere on social

It's doesn't directly have anything to do with the gravitational force but we have a mass which is an inertial mass and how things accelerate without having to talk about gravity and the higgs on is understood. There's a framework the particle physics standard model in which the higgs bozon first of all. I should say that every in quantum mechanics anytime you have a particle. There's also a field. I should say. In quantum field theory so like in electromagnetism the particles of electromagnetism or the photons and the field is the electromagnetic field in the case of lego. It is producing gravitational waves. Those waves are the classical cousins of what we particle physicist would call the gravitons but also we think that the higgs bows on the particle is associated with something called the higgs field. And furthermore this higgs field we think that it has a sort of non zero value everywhere in space time and this This crazy field talk to particles an endows them with mass so that particles that otherwise would have been massless. Feel this field and they get mass this way and and we can make predictions based on that for the relation between the masses of the forces. That the carriers of the weak force the which we call the w bozon's in z and. There's some successful predictions from that says the caucus the the hicks boss over mass mediation interact with a gravitons gravity. I mean gratitude mediation. What's the connection there. Well we i would say that. The higgs bone gives particles mass and gravity interacts..

He made the most pacific macroscopic object. I think he meant the they were very. Mathematically precise there is a way of describing them If a black hole is not spinning we say that they saw a certain equation bull which einstein pro down his field equations of general relativity and the solution to them to those equations. There was one found. Boy schwartz shield early in the twentieth century and it gives a very precise in very simple description of what space time looks like everywhere near a black hole and as far as we know black holes. Obey the these relations perfectly and In the real world they can sometimes have accretion disks of gas and dust around them but but sometimes they appear to be very naked or or shorn of that dust and then they should obey these equations. And we've seen examples of that with the lie go detectors at least seeing the gravitational waves when two black holes coalesce and so far it seems to be described by einstein's equations as well.
Is the Biden Regime Illegitimate?
"We are one on one with Stanford University's professor Victor Davis Hansen. Given that you have said all the synonyms, the deep state, the permanent bureaucracy, justified, not hyperbole, we have the empirical evidence. If we add to that, what we witnessed last year, 80 million unbidden mail out ballots sent out. Democrat governors across the nation saying we don't need to verify signatures. We can stretch the dates suitcases of ballots being pulled from under tables on CCTV. And Hunter Biden, the Hunter Biden story being literally censored at the source by Silicon Valley, the oldest newspaper in America, Alexander Hamilton's New York Post, not being allowed to re post the story of the contents of the hunt of mine laptop. Is it again? I'm using you as my sounding board. Is that hyperbole? It is an exaggeration to say that this quote unquote regime, this White House is illegitimate professor. Or I'm not going to adjudicate because that's what Hillary Clinton did and discouraged. Remember, she said that he was that he was not fairly elected. Stacey Abrams did that. All I will say is that when you transition in a single election cycle to the highest you've ever had mail in ballots in 2016 of 40% roughly. And you go to 63%, a 102 mail in or early ballots. And the error rate goes from a typical per state average of three to 4% rejection rate. And it goes down to .2 to .4, depending on the state. And then you're told that when you more than double the amount of work, the tabulate those ballots. And you need double the amount of workers. Yet you're going to find less air than you usually would when you have half the bowel, I just don't believe that's

Rebecca jarvis was working on a story about high medical costs and we featured a woman who was spending a lot of money on blood tests and after that story ran. Rebecca got a pitch about a new start-up. Hey there's this blood testing company theranos and they can save your viewers a lot of money. She checked it out but couldn't get anyone to independently verify that these theranos blood tests which only used a finger prick and not a traditional vein. Stick we're actually going to be better and cheaper. It was one of those things where This just it. It doesn't fully lineup. it doesn't live up to what it would take for me to even consider covering it as a solution.

What what have been the biggest step function changes during the last couple of years in this field. Okay you can't try to give my perspective's of course is sink. x-ray was discovered in eighty nine hundred ninety five by franken and Was the humidity or sensation Because the he shined on his wife's a finger we had rain. Which is you know. One of the first images When when you talk box that's one of the first images of people pops up immediately find the medical application but also scientific obligations Third not not law for that There is a work by Brac of a father and the son brax. I'm bracknell and the work by law. We are understanding. what happened. If you shying x-rays on crystals which gave you gave the name the field actually x ray diffraction.

So the x ray source has always been the so called x. Ray cues aware similar to us in donkeys. Office that has been saying with us A state of art x ray source for probably fifty years. You know my you know. My number may not be exact But that also if you the the other in terms of x ray diffraction another famous picture.

I think guys wrong time and Dow was taken was actually cube in the lab but from there Watson under creek deduce the x-ray You know the from the x. Richter deduce the dna double helix structure. you know. Of course that was one of the biggest discovery of the twentieth century and interpret. Yeah so people definitely realize x ray diffraction very useful tour for understanding atomic on the modern structures So there are also also need to have better access resources. I think in terms of actually source development The next major milestone. I will say a discovery of a synchrotron radiation Where basically people find though when the when especially using particle accelerator They accelerate on store say electron. Beam either relativistic energy. Those the electron beam. When they're being bandied in a circle trajectory they geek yield radiation relation to synchrotron radiation And stat. Was initially.

And we've learned a lot the hop angle is more a function of the shape of the rover. So with this type of impulsive. Breaking cubic shape provides a nice forty five degree hop on average. The team is experimenting with fly. Wheels and friction belts to create the momentum that allow the hedgehogs to hop or spin across the surface. We took this prototype down to houston and flew on the vomit comet for two hundred. And if you guys aren't familiar with that it provides about twenty second windows a relative weightlessness. So in each of these twenty seconds we were able to test maneuver so far. The prototypes funded through. Nasr's innovative advanced concepts program are just what the engineers order

And there's so many lessons from changing the big stodgy cultures of defense and military that translate to how innovation has operate in almost any enterprise so out of transferable lessons here is also a lot of interesting use cases and trends that affect not only our business but the balances of international power. It seemed like it would be worth kicking off a series. So that's exactly what we've done. And what better guest to talk about the dynamics of innovation defense and the impact of artificial intelligence defense than steve blank himself. Steve blank needs really no introduction. But i'll give you one anyway. Steve blank is arguably one of the best known as silicon valley thinkers alive today. His book called the startup. Owner's manual had a profound effect on myself. And i'm sure many many many other entrepreneurs it's a remarkably popular and one of many that steve has authored he is also an adjunct professor at stanford university where he teaches about innovation but also innovation in modern war. Steve has a background in the military. He was in the airforce before moving out to silicon valley and starting and selling a variety of companies from convergent technologies to ardent to epifani. And more since then his teaching and writing has been massively influential and again he's maintained an emphasis on innovation in modern war. Today steve speaks to us about how innovation has to operate within the military and what the united states department of defense might do better to adopt future technologies and evolve more quickly in the face of a very capable adversary in the form of china. Steve is really no-holds-barred here. I was frankly surprised by his level of candy. But i was very pleased by it because i think frankly we need to hear it for those of you. Interested in the global dynamics of power this will be a fascinating episode about the united states and china for those of you interested in how to make big stodgy enterprises and organizations evolve and what kind of systems have to evolve within them and how leaders thinking must evolve. Steve provide some gyms that should be immediately applicable to nearly any industry so all this episode is about defense. I hope it's transfer ability will be useful for literally everybody tuned in. I'm grateful to be able to have steve with us. Somebody who's read. His work genuinely appreciated his contributions.

And i live in germany. I'm actually american. And i was raised by a research psychologist. My mom who said now retired professor and a surgeon and i was always fascinated by how things work and i wanted to create technology. Head helped people. I also did a lot of art. And i like riding ahead. Many many different interest and i was an athlete and athletics that led me to study at stanford university which was also enough to home but far enough away and i studied mechanical engineering. I really enjoyed understanding physics than how all had also design and build things produce functionality in the world and i was always drawn more towards like smart systems with sensors and actuators. Programming actually delayed taking programming class. Because i'd heard so difficult on the other athletes libel player. They all said oh. You know the programming class so hard. I loved it beyond words. And then i just i took more computer science punching i decided to stay for master's degree and i worked actually in as a teaching assistant a machine shop for two years helping students learn design and manufacturing like welding and casting bronze and milling aluminum and making parts sticking the shop late at night and i really fell in love with working with younger pupil helping them design and create things and i also took this amazing metrics class. There like realized. I wanted to become a professor and i that i needed a phd. And i needed a phd adviser. So i looked around and found a new professor. Was his first fish student. his name's Niemeier and he was one of the first engineers at intuitive surgical a robotic surgery company. That most of you probably know make davinci robot and we got along soup. Well was also volleyball player. And yeah the mechanical engineering computer science electrical intersection.

States To Offer Lottery Tickets to Incentivize Americans to Get Vaccinated
"Wants to use incentives like a lottery or reduction in property taxes to try and get more people vaccinated. This comes in several states have started using different forms of giveaways to persuade people to get the shot. Almost like popping reports on how these methods are actually improving Vaccination rates. If there's one thing that we need to do with money related to Cove, it's to get people healthy. And that's fueled King County Council member Reagan done to consider what his county might be able to do with some of the millions of federal dollars that have been sent to King County during the pandemic. His ideas were thinking about rental assistance is one idea we're thinking about Even things like lottery or scratch Lotto tickets as well. It's a creative approach that has proved to be effective in getting more people to sign up for a vaccine. New YORK, New Jersey, Maryland and West Virginia have all used some form of incentives. In Ohio. They started a lottery were five people could each win a million bucks. That incentive led to an over 50% weekly increase in vaccinations games are been showing in vaccines to enhance vaccine knowledge and improve vaccine uptake Doctor Ashby monk with Stanford University.

Increases in Extreme Precipitation Cost the U.S. $73 Billion
"Torrential. Rainstorms can flood homes. Wash out roads and bridges and destroy crops over the past. Three decades flooding from heavy precipitation has caused about two hundred billion dollars of damage in the. Us francis davenport is a phd student. In earth system science at stanford university. She wanted to know how much of that enormous price tag can be blamed on global warming. We've seen that extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency or intensity and so we wanted to quantify what are the financial costs of those changes in precipitation. Her team analyzed historic rainfall trends and financial data about flood damages over decades. They estimated that between nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and twenty seventeen about seventy three billion dollars. A flood damage can be attributed to increases in extreme precipitation. That's more than a third of the cost of flooding over those thirty years. So devonport says that people are already paying the financial cost of warming world. I think having those hard dollar amounts is really important for some of these policy conversations about what to do.

When they went to the big city with that mean that our networks would disappear in and And then robert putting them head a book bowling alone a series of studies. That seems to suggest that this would be less tight communities in this kind of world I think when you look overall the networks evolve and they evolve in complex ways and it's it's not quite as easy as we would imagine to just say that everything's gonna disintegrate it's sort of you have new connections you have different kinds of connections your connections through your workplace become more important or your school or your family and so there's different types of connections and technology now means that you can be in pretty constant contact with people who might live at a greater distance from you but you know are you're still well connected to and i think you know that's something that's changing and we don't really have the full understanding of yet when with the ultimate whether people are going to end up being more isolated or or more connected and and what you were points out.

Yeah yeah actually. I'm so that's something we haven't tested. So we've we've just about particular you know good news kinds of things but you're right.

Yeah yeah yeah definitely. And i think it's. It's interesting because i think it as you're pointing out there can be two things that are sort of going on at the same time. One is how well connected these people are and how many people they but there's also some level of trust in whether this is a person that you would go to You know for particular kinds of information.

"Dominant or say. Let's think of who's the most influential person or who's the most important person that can take different forms in different settings and is it just who can reach the most people or who is seen by the most people or is it. Somebody who's a key gatekeeper between different groups who has information nobody else has. There's different ways to be very influential. But they all depend on on networks depending on the circumstances You can you can think of ways of measuring who's the most influential and and who makes the biggest difference in in a society yeah i wonder if you've done any of this type incite companies. I remember in the late nineties early. Two thousands. I was at a pharmaceutical company. A large company. If be looked at you know sort of the networks inside the company and You know of typical network analysis. You find you know people who are video. Heidi connected the others in the company but Cutest libby found that the people have most influence in the organization are not those who are highly connected at least cosmetically the network analysis I don't know if you have if you've seen this essay or if that yes certainly So so actually when you there's a number of studies that people have done going into Companies in mapping out first of all what sort of the official relationship of who who reports to whom or whose in communication with whom and then. What's the actual communication network and that can be very different and then as you're pointing out you know just looking so one. One naive thing that we often do is just judge people by how well connected they are. So if you're if you're on twitter and you have more followers that must be better But what's really important. Think about twitter for instance. If you tweet it's not just that first set of people that you're tweeting to it's the re tweets and so forth that make a big difference and so it's not just how many followers you have but if you have followers that have a lot of followers that can be more important. Having a few followers who have lots of followers can be more important than having lots of followers yourself. And so you know it multiplies out that way and so you know we've done studies like we did a study in india and karnataka on trying to get information about microfinance program out and there. We found that that the kind of centrality that really matters is not just this raw number of people. But it's how well connected your friends are and so forth out to about a distance of three So you can actually map out. How far out you have to go to to really measure this and that you know that can identify very different people than Than you would get by just counting friends right. Yes sort of the middle structure. How how how. Much sort of multiplying out as ical fullwood. But it's also as say Whether you're network the people that you connected this Abedian each right. So going back. The critic sample you may have only a thousand followers but those thousand followers really engaged looking at everything that you do and lead tweeting that that is much more powerful network than perhaps having ten thousand followers school alkyl might regularly exactly so so it's it's a combination of their engagement and their own networks in terms of how much they can reach once they do get engaged right and so you want to sort of if you want to be influential and in some sort of social media you want to reach people but you want to reach people who can reach others and get them excited about what you're doing or what you have to say..

"I think you're correct in pointing out that that as we move over time. We're we're entering a phase where we're starting to move backwards. A little bit in terms of of the way that globalization is taking place and and for while we just saw more integration and more trade and now seeing countries separate themselves and isolate themselves and going to trade wars and the more we see blocks emerging where there's most of the trade going in within blocks almost none going across blocks. No then you have to rely on military might and fear to deter conflict rather than than economic interests and and the wind Incentives and. I think that then we move into a more dangerous phase and and you know. I think that the more that economy economics is taken into account in long-term Politics where people say. Look you know we have to really think about these trade relationships. Not just as Current economic drivers but as long term political devices for ensuring peace and prosperity.

Yes as traders is to teach instrument Not just not just economic gains But leave motorboat's all fatty of keeping ps and and doing that at least cost for.

After a few decades of relative peace we tend to forget what the world was like before the war were constantly in turmoil and constantly burning resources and killing people and then wasting a lot of the world.

"Effect like a bump up and trade really makes a huge difference in in the drop in conflict and makes a lot of sense. If we're trading together you know the idea of going to war just doesn't make any sense because we're going to be cutting off our own economy and hurting a lot of our own industries and and conflict is just really dangerous that way and if we think about you know what goes on the european union in the last fifty years. It's almost inconceivable that two countries would be at war with each other now it would be just devastating to their economies. But you know you go back a hundred years and it was almost constant that they were with each other. You know it's it's it's a dramatic change. Once you have that trade anchoring you know makes you symbiotic. It makes you really care about what the other country is doing and You know even if you look at the. Us and china There can be conflict and trade war trade wars in some ways and a lot of back and forth and bargaining but the idea of military conflict. would really be devastating and and just be in neither country's interest an interesting thing so you know the the gains from trade us competitive advantage and and and all of that on the positive side have been pretty clear pointing out said beacon also reduce the negative side through the using the linear for war. Yes adding a high load of trade right. Yeah i think when if you look at things like the middle east conflict these days It's it's it. It's something that when you look at it from an economic perspective you think look you can try and write trees all you want. But until all those countries trading with each other they don't really have each other's interests aligned right earn in mind when when they're making decisions. And i think the more the more you can start to cement trade between countries in the middle east. The eventually you can get to a point where you can sign treaties that are really gonna be respected by them but now it's just sort of a piece of paper that says look this at this particular point in time we're gonna try and avoid conflict but the economics don't really drive it and and it's not very stable and you know practically knowledge. It's just a a stalemate in terms of military strength but You could imagine that middle east erupting in different ways. And and that's something that if we really want to solve that in the long term you really need to get the country's interests aligned and they never agree religiously or politically but at least if they're agreeing economically that cements that relationship right. Yeah and so. This could be a policy.

"Stanford University. And it was about they actually went and tried to study. The crowds that are showing up for the president at his rallies. And Come on. I mean, those crowds are huge. And they're they're everywhere, and there was one last night at midnight in Ocala, Florida. He's been there before, and the crowds were still there and I mean, he's out in the middle of doing rural America. Mostly. That's where he's got to get the votes from rural America. That's what worked for him four years ago. The big cities are going to go Democrat, the rural part of the world of the country is going to go Republican. A twisted did four years ago. I don't know if they'll do it again tomorrow, but I kind of expect that the interesting part about our country when you want to break it down. It's not so much the north, the South, the East, the West. It really is. Three groups of us. Those of us who live in cities. Those of us who live in suburbs. And those of us who live in Rural America in the country. And the cities are dominated by Democrats. The rural like I said, dominated by Republicans at least four years ago wasn't that way In the past. They were very Democrat, but not four years ago, and they're expected to go very heavily for Donald Trump. But there's fewer off them than the people in the city, so they've got a really get everybody out to vote in rural America. And the big question mark where there is still a pretty good crowd of people is in the suburbs. So That's where the fight is. This year. The fight is for the suburbs. And which I know we keep hearing about the suburban woman, but I just think the suburbs in general And one of the things about the suburbs. Which I'll find interesting when this election is all said and done. Is a lot of people move out of the central urban part of his city. Out to the suburbs. When they want to raise a family. Or they want more space for their family. So a lot of suburbia is made up of people with Children. And what is the big issue in this country that unless you have a child in school There's a lot of really upset parents. About what? Schools. And are the schools open? Are they hybrid? Are they close? Are they do they do the schools know what they're doing about teaching online? And the the parents apparently are fresh, greater beyond what you can imagine. So I don't know what that means for their vote, but they're not happy Campers. They are not happy campers and when it comes to wanting to get this virus over Talk to suburbia. I think they wanted over while they wanted over more than two people out in the rural areas, people in rural areas of space. You're not worried about social distancing. I get some funny e mails from time to time from people that tell me where they live. And they say I'm out here basically rural America and I like this social distancing. I've always been About separating myself from other people. So the rural people like their space, the city people don't have any space, but the suburban people move there to get space and they want their kids in school. And they are ticked. I don't. I haven't heard any parent who's just thrilled with the way their schools are operating. So then you've got these events. I don't know where they come from. Because the president is not in Manhattan. He's not on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. He's not down on Wilshire Boulevard in L. A. He's out in the country, small city small towns. So this this study came out from Stanford. Saying that the rallies have led To over 30,000 confirmed Koven 19 cases. And from there, they're guessing they say, likely caused the death of 700 Americans. So 30,000 confirmed Koven 19 cases coming from people that were at the rallies now, did they get him at the rallies? Stanford Look up the study from Stanford. They they don't mess around when they do studies. They examined 18 rallies between June and September. And they follow the subject for 10 weeks after each rally, and they came up with 30,000 people came down with the virus 700 of them died. So I I went online to where you get tickets for the next event. And here it is. Black and white. Of confirmation. SMS will be sent to your phone. Please follow the instructions to confirm your tickets. By registering for this event. You understand and expressly acknowledged at an inherent risk of exposure to covert 19 exist in any public place where people are present. And attending the event you and any guest voluntarily assumed all just related to exposure to covert 19 and wave release. And discharged. Donald J. Trump for President Inc. The Republican National Committee, the host venue or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory. Whether in negligence or otherwise for any illness or injury. So this was written by a good Philadelphia lawyer, and if you get sick do not soon. Uh, no, no, no, no, no, I know there's a lot of lawsuits around, but The president can sue. Lot of election people, but you cannot sue him. No way. Jose So that's the big disclaimer that you have to in order to get tickets. You've got to agree to that. That was kind of interesting. So this is also a referendum on What the president has been able to achieve. Versus covert 19. And the Koven 19 numbers. Could not be any worse. For President Trump as we head into Election Day. They're Dr Scott Gottlieb talking about the very latest. No things are getting worse around the country. I think Thanksgiving is really going to be an inflection point. I think December is probably going to be a toughest months. When we look at what's happening in states right now you're seeing accelerating spread.

Florida 5000 cases, Wisconsin 5000 Cases reported Friday. These very worrisome trends there about 23 states right now that are accelerating the spread right now there's the positivity rate is above 10% 15 states. And all the states haven't are above one, which means that they're in expanding epidemic right now, so this is very worrisome as we head into the winter. Jeff Yeah. 23 States, But all states every one of them have growing Cove in cases now will that lead to.

K. in asked mated that down to twenty thousand or less in the UK over the course of three days the people who are in charge and study basically suggested the reason for that that is number one the death rate being lower but number two that the lockdown is actually effective at preventing this if you let people out of lockdown is on the twenty thousand maybe it's a hundred thousand there's a study that came out from university of Washington today suggesting that the total number of deaths in the United States over the next four months could be eighty thousand I'm not sure what death rates they're playing in that study I've been trying to figure that out all day long here do you think the deep locked down and and people staying home has been effective in at least reducing the transmission how many excess deaths had actually been prevented and I'm not looking for you know hard number but but later on tonight although I can give you a hard number on this which is difficult right but I think the key thing there is that you can see the uncertainty in practice right right in front of you that the argument for the shutdown essentially is not alone healthcare systems like yours in Italy this is what's happening lately that's actually not unreasonable I mean it depends on what the terms on the capacity the healthcare system to deal with large numbers of people meet validators in ICU beds and things like that so I think that died it's hard for me to save my comment directly I think I have a very careful attention if your college studies study and that I I saw just this morning but you're free from the P. eyes that study just just basically changes wanted something like that to look more carefully I think they're the best that that's I mean do you see people putting numbers and the sheer prevalence essentially assume it's your problem that's right number initially that led to this massive massive shut down policy that number it isn't justified by that actual study will part of the population they they've they guess that number I mean I think we we need much more careful about about that more humble I think about the confidence with which we said let's do this when we when we don't actually know number we should be we should say we don't know that number at work toward reflects the uncertainty in our in our in our confidence in our our statements much more more effectively we typically do and Dr J. final question for you let's let's assume that we actually do get these tests in place that we start running all these zero prevalence has said that personal problems by the way just get checked my definition is to make sure I'm getting this right that would be checking the prevalence of the of the antibodies in people's blood basically has backed what once the once those tests aren't correct then how soon do you think this what's up how soon could we could we be looking at getting out of get out of I want to yesterday I wanted because yesterday I went on yesterday I want the number medially and we have our studies that I'm I'm working on with some of my colleagues to get the Ali and end up in LA county to get together does your call so sorry but we are nationwide study and we support for initialize that you needed to keep the extra to keep things are missing right now is we need a large number of antibody test that we need some funding source to pay for pay for that task and we can get those we can get that running with **** I mean the site if you need to round up the folks I'm talking with they want these numbers also so this is not something that's controversial I don't think it's partition I just think it's we just need we need the number I'm hoping will know it in in that two weeks on that latest what name really amazing amazing stuff and an interest and vital stuff here from Dr J. Bhattacharya professor misunderstand really appreciate your time Sir and thanks so much for hard work on this topic yeah I think it was a little pleasure take care but coming up we're gonna talk about president trump apparently members media very very angry that president trump's numbers are up in the midst of all of this because of course everything is from fall gets that momentarily first let's talk about some stuff that you can do in the near term like right now while you are locked down at home well first of all you can help your fellow Americans how can you do that as a member of the community well text my name then two four one four nine zero take the love America pledge today how can you help a local businesses that are just getting slammed well you could purchase a gift card from them you could commit to social distancing which is going to be useful regardless what happens next you.
