We Must Own Our Complicity in Afghanistan
"The united states shame right over its precipitous sprint out of afghanistan shadow this country's conscience for generation every horror story and they will keep coming is partly the result of our decision to bug out the death and destruction that occur in previously secure parts of that country will be on the bipartisan decision to exit the fiasco of president biden ordered quick march out of the country with its arbitrary deadline and false proclamations of the heroic airline effort.

We did a portion of the saving at the last minute and those tens of thousands who did escape will be forever grateful for the eleven marines. One navy cormon and one army soldier who gave their lives at those refugees might live but for twenty years. We pretend it all of us at some sort of middle ground might emerge between the darkest midnight and the dawn of democracy. Turns out there wasn't such a middle ground and yet we owed an exit to those who relied on falso.

Fbi lawyer james baker in a meeting on september nineteenth two thousand sixteen in that meeting sussman attempted to tie the trump organization to a russian bank. Alfa bank saying that they were using a secret server to communicate michael sussman. The fbi later dismissed those allegations so did muller and they were totally bogus. How did sussman lie. Durum has discovered discrepancies between susman's congressional testimony and his september two thousand sixteen interview with baker during their discussion.

I joshua norton of san francisco california declare and proclaim myself emperor of these united states.

Scientists are now desperately trying to protect the others. Here's npr's lawrence summer. It's not easy to kill a giant sequoia. The trees are among the largest living things on the planet.

There's no living foliage on it at all. Within one hundred meters of us. I can see one two three four five six seven eight giants aquarium onyx. And they're all dead last year. The castle fire tore through the sequoia groves. It killed thousands of trees as much as fourteen percent of the entire population based on early estimates. It's hard to see these trees that i've lived hundreds to potentially thousands of years. Just die because it's just not a normal thing for them not normal because sequoias can handle fire. Their bark is a foot thick. They tower over the rest of the forest without any low branches. That might ignite these trees have been here fifteen hundred years. so how many fires have maybe.

Old two thirds of all giant sequoia groves acres already burned down and wildfires within the last five years historic drought and heat waves caused by man made climate. Change are to blame for the extreme proliferation of fires in the area. Firefighters are working hard to protect the giants by doing things like robbing them in huge fire-resistant blankets that are usually reserved for protecting buildings.

The eyes of tammy faye came up a couple of weeks ago. During our fall movie preview. You have seen the movie and as i alluded to. We lived through the eighties. The bakers were inescapable in popular culture. At seem does the movie convinced that there is more there was more to jim.

Live visiting the church lady. I think phil hartmann was was jim baker. Actually so i didn't really know much beyond that of the story. I mean would have been a little kid at that time. And so yeah this was interesting to get some of the background info a lot of it drawn from the two thousand or two thousand two documentary of the same name.

He lied about that he knew better. He lied he lied to america. Ocoee covered up the connections of the saudi arabian government to al-qaeda and now the fbi just last weekend revealed some of the details that at least one.

"thousands" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"Wherever you get your podcasts. And we're back and a question that i would put to. Both of you is if we assume for the sake of this podcast that the biden administration is successful that they meet this august thirty first deadline and the evacuation phase of this is over. Are we then entering in sort of a refugee emergency phase of this crisis. What happens to these tens of thousands of people that have just been hastily removed from this country. Well you know. We've seen this in the past and afghanistan going way back to the soviet invasion in nineteen seventy nine. This touched off a huge refugee crisis. Millions of afghans fled to pakistan and to iran when the taliban took over a quarter century ago. You saw another big exodus over time. Some of these refugees have come back. But they're certainly the concern that if the taliban takeover you would see a big refugee outflow. It seems unlikely that they would that. They would be able to get out by plane but they could get across. Land borders and iran and pakistan are the two most likely countries and and i think that's one of many reasons why there has been such frustration and pushback from european allies about this. Despite the fact that you know president biden keeps insisting. That's not happening at all. It's been pretty clear it's been in public. You know Key officials in germany in great britain and other places have been very angry at how the us has handled itself over the past few weeks. I think one reason is that the syrian refugee crisis totally destabilized european politics. I mean that led to the rise of far wing parties among many other things. There's obviously a lot of things different between syria and afghanistan but the idea of another big refugee crisis is something said. Certainly a lot of european heads of government do not want to have to deal with again because it was an enormous challenge. Greg you were just talking about the taliban and how things have changed in afghanistan. I mean they are effectively ruling the country now but they're also trying to present a very different face to the world of more moderate face at least by taliban standards even though we should note that there has been reporting on the ground of them still Gathering people doing repressive regime type things. But how seriously are people taking the taliban in this sort of new more moderate presentation. They're putting forward to the world and how skeptical is the world of them well. There's very deep skepticism. And with good reason. I mean they were in power for five years and they developed a reputation for brutality for especially for limiting the rights of women so i think the burden of proof is on the taliban to show that they've changed now their leadership has been in places like qatar in the middle east. They know what the world is going to demand of them and therefore they know what they should say that will sound pleasing to western ears or two two other people around the world So yes they say. They'll allow women to work within the the norms of islamic society islamic law. But they're not defining any of these details and they had sort of a strange statement the other day of well. Some of our fighters are rank and file fighters may not quite know how to treat women in public so women should probably stay home and try to work from home for a little while 'til we sort that out and so already. You can see some potential cracks here where the leadership may be saying. One thing and the taliban fighters or taliban members on the streets may be doing something else. I think they're in a real contradiction here. The taliban want foreign embassies to stay open. They want assistance from the rest of the world. They know they need that but they do have some fundamental principles that they've never really compromised on and if they're pushing the us and its allies out the door They could very much find themselves in a position of isolation once again and i think it's it is worth pointing out that there is deep deep deep deep deep could keep going skepticism from the global community that the taliban is going to be significantly different than it was twenty years ago and and that it's going to run a more open and welcoming government. I think president biden would be delighted if that was the case. But i don't think anyone at the un is making plans for that to happen. All right. I think we'll leave it there. Greg mary. Thanks so much. My pleasure sue before we end the show. I just wanted to say that this is going to be my last podcast for awhile. I'm going to have a baby next week. So i'm going to be on maternity leave until the early part of next year but i promise scott i'm going to be listening to the podcast the whole time well Can't wait to meet your baby.

"thousands" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"Podcast. I'm susan davis. I cover congress. I'm scott detro-. I covered the white house and in remarks at the white house on tuesday. President biden said the. Us is on track to soon complete airlifts out of afghanistan. We're currently on pace to finish by august. thirty first. the sooner we can finish the better. Each day of operations brings added restore troops our colleague. Greg covers national security for npr and he joins us now. Hi greg hey sue. So let's start with this. Is it possible for the us to evacuate all the people. It is promising to evacuate over the next six days. Well it's a fuzzy number. We don't know exactly what that figure is. We and others have been pressing for days and days. The us says it wants to get out. Every american who wants to get out and all afghans who worked with the americans and others. Now who are at risk. But what is that number of about as we speak forty four hundred americans have have come out but when you go to a country as an american citizen you don't have to register at the embassy and when you leave you don't have to deregister so therefore it's kind of hard to figure out exactly how many american citizens are in a country of the the. Us officials say they've been in contact via phone or email with with us citizens that they're aware of and try to get them out. We've heard now for a third time. The us military helicopter from the airport in kabul to pick up a us citizens and bring them back so they are going to some pretty extraordinary links to try to make it happen. The question is the numbers trying to figure out. Exactly how many are there and this tight tight deadline. Which is fast approaching. The white house has been pretty defensive about its inability to to provide. This number has really explained this point over and over again and it's worth pointing out that even as the white house has been increasingly proud to give two or three times a day. Updates of like the baseball stadiums worth of people a day. That it's airlifting out of afghanistan right. It wasn't actually until yesterday that the government said how many americans have been evacuated but than four thousand according to the pentagon which of course means a big chunk of the people who were evacuate or none of those airplanes we're afghans is obviously people from other countries where were evacuated as well though. That's my other question. Greg is what exactly or how much do we know about who is still there and how they're going to get out right so it's presumed to be a few thousand more americans but perhaps still tens of thousands of afghans and they've kind of expanded the categories Before the before the big crisis started just a couple of weeks ago it was people known as siv's people with special immigrant visas. These were the translators interpreters who'd worked with the us troops over the past twenty years. But now that we've we've seen this. This group expanded it again. It was their family members. So we're talking close baby up around twenty thousand of the siv's plus family members and you get up. Maybe seventy eighty ninety hundred thousand but we're also talking now about the category. They're calling just at risk and these might be a journalist or people who've worked in the afghan government and feel. They've been at risk where they've received threats in some fashion from the taliban so that that number is expanding all of these these huge bureaucratic requirements at the state department Had put in place have kind of fallen by the wayside not entirely but but it's getting much looser about who can who can get on a flight at the airport now. These people are still supposed to be vetted when they arrive at a at a way station at an airbase in qatar germany. But as we've seen everybody's had to scramble because this has become such a such a rush operation there's a lot of pressure right now on biden from lawmakers in both parties from world leaders saying don't stick to don't make a hard deadline scott. Why is the white house so insistent that they keep this hard deadline. Why not push it back. While i think first of all remember this all started because biden was anxious to get out of afghanistan. He didn't want any more soldiers there. He wanted to follow through on a promise. He wanted to be the president who actually delivered on the promise of leaving afghanistan and i the spring than early this summer. He said the united states is pushing through with this and when will be completely out of this country by september eleventh. The twentieth anniversary of the nine eleven attacks obviously a symbolic symbolic deadline but also kind of the after effects of some some loose agreements that the trump administration had had had agreed to with the taliban afghanistan's government last year. Biden is trying to walk a fine line here. the messaging from the white house is that the us is on pace to achieve. Its goals of airlifting. Americans and afghan allies out of the country by the thirty. First that it's going to happen by that deadline anyway. I think a lot of people on the ground are very skeptical that that deadline will be met so. I don't know if that talking point will have to change. The deadline gets closer. It's clear there are still people on the ground but right now you can clearly see. The president try to satisfy both sides by saying so far The thirty first is the deadline. And the other thing. I'd add is that he national security advisor jake sullivan. Other administration officials have been saying a lot more bluntly lately that they are worried. The longer that Thousands of troops are securing the airport perimeter the more vulnerable. They are to an attack from isis k. Which is a terror group in inside afghanistan among other groups. Great obviously the. The taliban is a factor here. There was a story reported earlier in the week that the cia director william burns actually went to afghanistan and met with leaders of the taliban on monday. What do we know about that meeting. So cia director. William burns flew to kabul and he had a meeting with the effectively. The top taliban political leader mulla abdul. Ghani bara dr. He has been a top taliban figure going way back. And he's got quite a history. We don't know where they met or what they discussed. Obviously there were short term issues like this august thirty first deadline. There's also the question of what sort of relationship the us. And the taliban might have after august thirty first and when the us is gone but quite striking. I think it really shows that the us and the taliban are being pretty pragmatic here..

"We could have staved off And it's going to be this. Tragedy is going to continue on fold for months and years on the point about a kinder in general gentler taliban There is a an anecdote from a may journal new story that jumped out at me and has stuck with me and i'll just read a couple lines. It starts saying though. The taliban support the practice of punishing theft by amputating a limb such amputations rarely occur in taliban territory today. And then it goes on to caveat that and says the movement spokesman said. Amputation should be reinstated. Once a sufficiently stable system is in place including health care to attend to cut off limbs unquote and and i mean another line from biden speech. Bill that jumped out at me was this. He said we'll continue to speak out for the basic rights of the afghan people of women and girls. And i just don't think speaking out is is going to be enough yet. He's going from commander in chief to community organizer right. We're going to speak out You know we did more than speak out in these past twenty years. we've We we actually helped create the conditions that allowed life to improve for afghan women in the afghan people.

You know War strategies based on strategic interests against those based on you and writes in fact what afghanistan proves that their their hand in glove they worked together. Does anyone believe that the afghanistan we're going to see today's going to be more respectful of human rights than it was before that it's going to be any better than the last time. The taliban were an office so it's vanity. it allows them to feel good about themselves by saying we care. But that's not gonna help you know. Think think of these afghan women now hiding in hiding in their homes. I have three daughters. I think what. Would i be doing if i were a dad over there with three daughters hiding them in my house and There's no way out. What do you do so i i think this is again. Just going to add to a great deal of cynicism. I don't get the sense. The president has any understanding of the hit. His own reputation has taken the hit. The american people's Reputation has taken for standing by an ally and what the consequences of that will be for his own administration. Yeah on that point. There was a an interesting tweet from chinese state media on tuesday or monday. I think and here. It is from what happened in afghanistan. Those in taiwan should perceive that once a war breaks out of the straits the island's defense will collapse an hours and the us military won't come to help unquote and kim. That is a quite a stark message. From chinese state media. Coming out of this and one of the jokes of this is joe biden suggesting that by withdrawing Our forces here. We're going to able to to focus on more immediate threats..

"You know being fifty four thousand people in this fight over the years. It's it's the fault of everyone. But joe biden and i was. I was surprised at the degree to which he doubled down. And i think we got a glimpse of that. Joe biden like remember that this was all done for one reason so that on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven he could stand before the american people and say i'm the one who has delivered us from america's longest war. It was a political Politically motivated decision. He didn't and then all the military Problems followed from that. Because that meant to do that we would have to start leaving during the fighting season. You know imagine trying to get your family out the back door while you're fighting an enemy at the front door so i don't think history is gonna look well on joe biden for what he said yesterday and i think it's not over. Also people don't realize the The mess of an operation. That this has become i mean. I'm sure that the military are imposing some order at the airport now and so forth but you send six thousand men into chaotic zone to stable to to stage a pullout of everyone. I mean there's all sorts of potential for example for for tragedy and forget. You know one could be the. The taliban could shoot something down. But even if they don't helicopters go down all the time. I do not think. This paints joe biden. Well as commander of chief. I think he put cheap politics ahead of Strategic interests and people's lives and i think the grim consequences that are playing out in afghanistan is the result the part that i found most frustrating about his remarks that He he sets up this choice without admitting that there was a middle option. I mean he said essentially that president trump negotiated a deal to withdraw american troops in may and then here was the line from by then he said. Let me find it here. quote there was only the cold reality of either following through on the agreement to withdraw forces or escalating the conflict and sending thousands more american troops back into combat in afghanistan unquote and cam. What's notable about that statement It's either a or b is that there was a choice in the middle of those and we know that all all the reporting suggests that binds own generals suggested leaving several thousand troops in afghanistan to support the government To essentially provide a backing and reconnaissance and intelligence and You know maintenance on some of the air force planes and at biden overrule that that Proposal from his own generals. Yeah i mean the idea that he is stuck with whatever. Donald trump of the que-. Tim this deal that donald trump may which by the way we were critical of But i have lost track of how many donald trump policies joe biden has overturned since he got into office it. It's mind boggling. It's dizzying and so to suggest that somehow he had to just follow the course here by what was given them Especially because the taliban had already violated its pledges under that deal so would have been very easy to say. Hey you folks aren't Abiding by the rules of the game And we're not going to actually Withdraw until conditions are met on the ground The in a way that allows us to get this was certainly what was recommended by as you said his advisors It was also what was recommended by the afghanistan study group. There were many alternatives like a ton of alternatives in between those two things that he presented as the only options as either We totally get out or we. Totally ramp up That was never never the actual reality facing joe biden and it also just ducked and i think this is very important It was a terrible speech and just an embarrassment..

"It was just yet charlie schalke. Marianne you've competed for australia. You've won medals. You've been on that world stage. Can you talk us through the precious and would be feeling. Yeah i mean like she said herself she has the weight of the world on our shoulders sometimes With all those labels that people put on our thing the best in the world all the greatest of all time. I can only imagine what she's going through. But the competition last night was a bit special in the fact that the team competitions actually three women competing and all of their scores count. So there's absolutely no room era and having competed in that environment myself at two championships. I can tell you that the pressure is so intense. And i think that that's something that the general public really struggling to understand right now from what i've been hearing. Yeah what do you think it is that people are struggling to understand that you know the the decision she made after she had the mental block. It's not continued. Was the right coal and i think people Thinking well she's a professional athlete. She should be able to continue but they don't understand that. Getting lost in the air can be really terrifying and have dire consequences. I mean if she continued competing than she could have potentially got an injured or performance which might have cost the us team the silver medal that they earned at the end of the day. Yeah and marianne. Can you talk us through the difficulty of some of the moves that she's doing you know she's done things that people have never done in history and gymnastics. I mean how much is at stake when she she used doing those moves. And what does it been like for you when you're doing that kind of thing on these kind of stage. Yeah well the you know you're seeing the best of the best of the olympics and world championships and the skills that these women and men in gymnastics doing are just insanely difficult and could cause really serious injury for example one of my teammates in two thousand seventeen She's an olympian. Emily little got lost in the air at on national championships doing a full twisting double out and she actually landed on a head and burke connect which ended her career. So you know he. If you're a person in the general public thinking that getting lost in the is in a good enough reason for someone to stop competing then. I think that's proof enough that what these women are doing is really serious stuff. Yeah it really is. two courtney. Walton is with us as well. So you're a sports psychologist. I mean what would samarn psychologists be telling her at the moment when she's trying to make these massive decisions about competing. Yeah thanks for having me. Look i think I would imagine that that the psychologist is going to be working with her to support. Whatever decision she thinks is best for at this time And kind of working with what are the values. And what are the things that that is really hoping to get out of the olympics I think we saw some of that. And how she responded working with the the teammates in the team after her decision supporting them And still being involved in in every way possible And hopefully she's going to have a lot of support for herself as well We know that peer support and support from the system is so important for athletes are experiencing difficulties with them into health And it looks from the outside Like that's there for her at this point. Could you work with young elite sports people. What is it like having that pressure. How does it affect your health. Even though these people are obviously trying to achieve the best in this sport yeah. I think it's something we're starting to understand a bit more and recognize I think in the pastas being the sense. That maybe those competing in these settings almost immune to experiencing difficulties with mental hilton was saying more and more that that's not the case and the research that we do shows that approximately one in three athletes have kinda pretty concerning symptoms of mental. Ill health And a lot of that we think is to do with some of the systems that are in place and some of the pressures that athletes face Which i think we in the public sometimes take for granted. Speaking of those systems. I mean gymnastics in particular has been so under scrutiny for these marianne moncton. Who's a former late gymnast. Talk to us about that. Culturing in gymnastics. We've seen it here in australia in the us. There's been a lot around nasa who has been found to have abused several young gymnasts and samoan balls is the lost remaining competitor who has survived that abuse. I mean tell us about that culture because it is just such a big pot of gymnastics at the moment. Yeah you're right. L. sport has been under the limelight in the last year or so suits through release of netflix documentary. Athlete a which highlighted some of that abusive Culture that you're speaking about. And i think some institution to stop competing last night actually shared. That does a bit of a shift happening in sports culture in that number one. She wasn't afraid to actually speak up when she was struggling. And number. two. Your coaches and support network actually listened to her and then the decision was made. And this is something that we're really not used to seeing in gymnastics so iheart thought the young generation watching and even the general public can be inspired by this and that can be brought about in the sport. Moving forward variant. How do we as people watching these olympics. Add to that pressure. Is that a thing i mean. Yeah for sure All of us athletes so usually on social media and we see what people saying Even the mainstream media sir. It's just really important to you. Know as athletes try to block it out. But there's only so much you can do. I mean somebody is one of the best gymnasts. We've ever seen sir. I imagine it would be to put that out of line when she's competing for sure and look just about to wrap up a very anura kirch. Now what are you hoping for the next generation of people you'll bringing through the sport as a coach myself. I really just tried to listen to the athletes and empower them to make decisions for themselves. And i just really try to help. Guide them through that and i believe that gymnastics is a fantastic sport. That can teach so many important lessons. That young people can take through the rest of their lives. So that's my Mentality yet it's amazing. Marianne moncton really appreciate you trying to us. thank you. And dr courtney walton sports psychologist. Thank you as well razz in melbourne. His texted if simone had pulled out due to a physical injury. No one would bat an eyelid. We should feel the same way her pulling out due to mental illness. She has formers named off to her. She's amazing and she knows what she's an easing opt to doing. Hashtag role model. I think we can all totally agree with that. Hack on triple j. This is a super hot breaking texts that we got during the show. One of my best friends was an incredible gymnast had an accident at training and injured his spine putting her in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. If you aren't feeling one hundred percent it's definitely not a sport where you should take the risk. Anyway i stand behind simone all the way. It's great to see that.

"We've been hearing in the last few days of cases, where of cases where people are just not complying with the covid nineteen rules. We've got a report about two hundred people who should be quarantining in Queensland. Who aren't they just? Just missing and then in Victoria, there was some pretty big numbers given yesterday by the Victorian Premier of people who should self isolating but aunt. What's going on here? Well? Let's start with Queensland ABC reported that yesterday. I mean this is a real worry for Queensland. Because queenslanders believed that there's no virus circulating in their state, it's unclear how many people are all proportionate people with symptoms are still coming forward for testing. As we spoken about before. There's a loss of social distancing in Queensland, and the soil is tilled, if you like for the seat of the virus to be transplanted into Queensland, and it could run riot, and it could be spreading. The heck of the metaphor is a heck of a metaphor, but that's what happens. I mean basically see the virus through an individual or multiple individuals. Could be young people with very few symptoms, and it could be spreading in Queens, as we speak not trying to create panic here, but that's the problem. If these people have gone missing and Queenslanders are behaving as though there's no virus in the community with a loss of social distancing I've no idea where the people are reducing their testing rates when the coming forward with symptoms, but as a high risk situation, and it's straighted in Victoria. Victoria in spades, because thirty eight hundred cases as reported yesterday cumulatively a lot of nearly five hundred new cases reported yesterday, but over thirty, eight, hundred, thirty, four, hundred were not complying with the rules. There's two elements to this one is that you develop symptoms and you need to go and get a test. If you develop symptoms, you should be isolating yourself and then getting a taste and I saving yourself to.

"As we've observed a bunch of times on this show, which seemed to be a pretty good spot in Australia at the moment when it comes to it, but that's certainly not the case elsewhere in the world. More than eight million people have now been infected by covid nineteen, according to Johns Hopkins University. It took nine days for the number of infections to grow from six million to seven. Seven million and less than eight days to get to the latest millions either pandemics, not slowing down. So what's happening elsewhere in the world nominee? Will it still going I mean? The United States tailed off a little bit, but that's largely because of New York state are lots of states in the United States which are now increasing, and there are some states that look as if they actually might be suffering from a second wave like south. Carolina and the league table of cases. Is <hes> America Brazil Russia India UK Spain Italy Peru. which gives you a sense of Latin America particularly, South America is a prominent source of new cases, which confirms what people already had a lot of which is Latin. America is a significant hotspot. As indeed is Russia, and Russia has had to revise its. Deaths reporting because it had all these eight, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred thousand cases and I think it was wondering reporting rows of handful of deaths, which made the WHO query their statistics, and they've rapidly revised that we oversee the far more deaths than they're admitting to. So that's the league table at the moment, and it is spreading, and you could argue that in some parts of the world are beginning to see a second wave. China's obviously worried about this outbreak in the. Food Market in Beijing and trying to control that very very quickly. So, what does this mean for us here in Australia where we're sort of? Increased pressure open borders especially to business people well. It says that they're still a huge amount of virus circulating in the world. It's not going away, it's. And it's spreading to countries that have had small epidemics up until now and growing and second waves look as if they may be happening, so you'd be nuts if you open the border to the United States. Russia India UK still far too much. In a lot of European countries still too much virus circulating, there are some countries in the world where there's not very much, and which you could consider that, but very very careful, and in fact, the Chinese think that the source of the cases that they've got in Beijing where Chinese people returning from overseas, so it's a high risk situation when the so much virus around the. The world, so a lot of countries around the world did lockdown, and we've done that here in Australia New Zealand and stuff like that, but if it's still increasing at such a rapid right in so many countries around the world, what were the point of lockdowns? Well for the countries that lockdown early? They've had success. Tens of thousands of people have died the point is that most countries with a bad pandemic. Countries that didn't lockdown early enough, and it already established itself. That's the problem. The problem is not the lockdown lockdown. Social distancing is actually the only thing that works and they have instituted late, and the viruses got away from them. But. It's not benefited their country. Their economies are shattered. They're not able to come back fully. People are frightened to come out the statistics from the United States show that most people are still quite nervous about coming out, even though the trying to open up the economy, because it's still a lot of virus around, whereas if you look at a Sturdier with lockdown and. and. New Zealand people are not so nervous about coming up because they know there's not much virus around, so allows us to return much more strongly. In terms of our economy, the problem those countries face where the still seeing an epidemic upenn significant pandemic is nothing to show for it. They've got an economy that short they've had a field lockdown was not failed. Failed more people would have died. Had they not locked down and the natural immunity in the population that tiny levels maximum, twenty percent, some countries like Sweden, maybe only nine or ten percent, so all these people died for what when they could have actually shut down earlier, and this is just like nineteen eighteen, the cities that in places that shutdown earlier their economies.

Hundred and forty. Five families who've been changed forever. We're starting to learn about some of those lives lost anti. We want to tell you about two people. I we remember tonight. Eighty four year old. John Knox a retired F. D. N. Y. Fire Marshal. He died on Monday. Investigated hundreds of New York City fires over his nearly four decades with the fire department. What a career. After the September eleventh terror attacks Knox came out of retirement in half to just put on his old grabbed his gear grabbed a pickax and went down to ground zero to help find his fallen comrades at the World Trade Center before joining the F. D. N. Y. knocks over two years with the NYPD served as a US Marine in Korea was devoted to his country city and his family. He survived his wife and four children and six grandchildren. His son Zach joins me right now. He is himself isolation. Jack I'm so sorry for your loss and your family's loss drew dad just sounds like an extraordinary guy. Thank you Anderson. He was he was talking about like living legend. And some of the stories. You hear about them unless they have been verified by somebody else who resigned. You wouldn't even believe that's funny so I mean is it was I write. That nine eleven happens he'd been retired for a couple of years and he. I mean he just did what he felt he had to do. Correct correct correct The weather story is actually took his vehicle and all all the gear that you still have remaining from his time with the FBI and drove down the battery and made the track from there all the way to ground zero news down there for several weeks afterwards now. Is it true? You're supposed to return your gear. But your dad was like just bill me. I'm not I'm not getting this back. This is what I was who I am. Yeah pretty much pretty much with all investigations and he said the code helmet is like. I'm keeping it said. Yeah please you can tell me good for him. When did you did you? Did you know what he had? I mean what what what? How did this hit while One thing is is that he actually. I got the call from my younger sister day I went to the hospital.

And that is breathing was impaired. Kind of went downhill from there so from the time he started feeling sick to the time that he passed. How how long was that He almost spent about three weeks hospital. How and how old was he? It was eighty four years young. I should say yeah I bet well. He looked. He looked in better shape than I am. Jeez I'm fifty two. Yes he was. He's a very vibrant eighty. Four year old. I think people decades younger than Stroke even though he'd been going to the gym I understand just until a couple of weeks ago. He used to make a joke that he started going to the gym. At the age of sixteen and then through a basic training at Parris Island and East just never stopped. Wow how how do you want folks to remember your dad I mean? Obviously those newman loved them. never gonNA forget them. Sounds like the kind of guy who always made a huge impact wherever he was. But how would you like the rest of us?

He lived in by his word. That's the way he always was. And and people loved him for it and everybody a love or hate him always respected him and not only that it's just the is. His career was just amazing Not only being a Korean War veteran he also served in the Air Force RECON is well to serve capacity when he still is also the PD and even his time as a firemen and fire Marshall also like dealing with groups like the AFL network In one thousand nine seventy five that bomb the also I think someone mentioned that he also arrested. Abbie Hoffman. He also was one of the investigation whether underground really wow. That's interesting.

New Yorkers recognized that it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better and I definitely want to talk to you about that shelter in place idea which is basically the model you see in San Francisco but even beyond that What I'm really deeply concerned about is medical supplies and then beyond that even other basic supplies that people need in their lives but the medical supply situation Anderson. You're talking about ventilators. Surgical masks surgical gowns really basic stuff. That we're deeply concerned about where we're going to be in a few weeks. And here's the problem of the Federal Government is absent in this discussion right now. President trump at this point is the Herbert Hoover of his generation. There's a massive national crisis going on and he is consistently late and very marginal what he does. He's taking actions that are far far behind the curve and aren't addressing the core concerns and talking about a massive number cases we expect of Corona virus. Were almost a two two thousand cases now in New York City alone That's going to cause a surge into our hospitals. They are going to be using their supplies rapidly in an unprecedented manner. We've been appealing to the federal government to get us a resupply and president. Trump has not done anything to maximize the amount of supplies being produced and to ensure they're distributed where they're needed the most in the United States. So you've talked to the hospitals in New York City the healthcare system in New York City. And they're going to run out in a matter of weeks you're saying or be. There are some products. I'm worried about that. It could be as soon as that and looking at this surge. I mean Anderson you know. Yesterday we saw a jump of one hundred cases today we saw jump of hundreds of cases almost a doubling overnight over eighteen hundred now pushing two thousand cases in just this city. And we're this rate is just GONNA keep increasing. I talked to the head of our public health system. Dr Mitch Cats. He's got enough supplies for the immediate future. But you're talking about a massive surge in demand and we have been appealing constantly to the federal government to start a supply system that will actually help. Our hospitals survive unprecedented surge in cases. This is the problem. So hospitals have massive new demands and things like surgical mask. He just burned through those in a normal day let alone in an emergency you also The the shelter in place. What is the current thinking of that? I know you talked to Governor Cuomo about it. He You last night. He was indicating he doesn't think it works because other areas aren't doing it some people from here go somewhere. I want to answer that and Governor. Cuomo and I spoke a few hours ago Anderson. Just one more point on the supplies. Nah I just want to emphasize president trump has to mobilize the United States military to fully act in the corona virus. Situat- you on the military New York City setting javits center things like that. I want their medical teams which are first rate. I want their logistical support. I want their ability to get stuff from factories all over the country where needed most the only the only force in America couldn't do that effectively and quickly United States military and they're being sidelined right now by donald trump when he should be calling them to the front. This is the front right now. And you're not talking national. Are you talking? Us military? I am talking about the United States military going where they can save the most lives of Americans and that's places like New York Seattle and California and soon it's going to be a lot of other places. Why are they building a wall and wire that their bases when they're needed right now? I'm they're ready to go. The military's rate ago. The president needs to give the order. So she'll turn plays should should should people shelter in place. And what are you? GonNa make the best example Anderson in San Francisco right now and that area of California millions of people. That is a smart order. I urge every American to look at. What San Francisco's doing? I think that's where it's going to be going lot of us. It's very clear rules about staying home with only minimal activity get rid of all non essential work and again horrible human consequences in terms of people's livelihoods but necessary to slow down the growth of this disease. It's a smart plan. That's where think we should talk to the governor. A couple of hours ago he and I had a good conversation. We're going to have a further conversation. He is trying to think about the needs of the whole state and how to balance strategy. I respect that but I do think. We share urgency. And we're working together on a common approach to Blasios appreciate your time. Thank you thank you Anderson. Just ahead scenes like proved that not everyone is heating the guidance that very well could save lives. That's certainly not folks sheltering in place your questions about social distancing more about the corona virus to our medical experts when we return not.

"Timid nature by which I approach life. Yeah pretty much pretty much So that's who we were talking earlier now also originally borough. Why don't you share a little bit about what you do who you are? And why the heck you're here at J. B. Allergy live. I came here to hang out with you. Wow that's Dan a couple of things number one I love the fact that he's touching me because one of my love language is of course is touch. The second thing is the dulcet tones. This is your second love languages touch. Your I love language is. We'll have exactly. I came here. Just hang out with. Is He's touching exactly so get this. I went to Bhutan. Time I've spun a baton baton ton is a country where what they measure is the gross national happiness as your product is just in the Himalayas right and so you fly in past Mount Everest. You cut in through the mountains. It's Super Shaky. You Land and you know baton. There are two stop lights in the entire country. It's kind of like Elsa Gunda. I and I went up to tigers net. So if you if you look tiger's nest online you'll see it. You have to hike all the way up. A mountain down a Gal and superstars and super crazy and then you get there and the monks that hang out. There are there for three years three months and three days without ever leaving tiger's nest unless there's an absolute medical disaster was interesting the monks that I've met Nelson. No they're usually there for the weekend and it's full of partying at South. Who's all right? Oh Man I don't even get that what. How so. You've actually had a chance to meet monks before so what happened was I got there. And it's a way for lunch and the monk comes up. What do you normally does he? He takes his little finger he puts his thing and he puts a little DAB on your on your forehead and he blesses you and off you go in four seconds or less even though he's there for three years three months heard as he's in hurry second it was lunchtime right and they have to empty the monastery at lunch for an hour. According to the law he looks at me and said why are you here and I looked at him straight in the eyes and I said I came here to meet you and then we spoke to twenty minutes paying attention to the other mercy on some level. Are You GonNa Somehow Tie that back? Because I thought I knew I thought you were gonNA. You're about to make the corner and I will about connecting and and making connections so bringing in bringing home for me originally I was GonNa make you take it. Even further outside picking a deep dive whatever either direction. What school is. If you're a serious martial artist the one reason why you like to have your hands on somebody if you could take him out right. So he's about raspberries about the slim. Our heads to you know that the original handshake. Yeah do you know why a handshake shake in ancient times was I am holding no weapon? I am not really a weapon. I'm showing you that. My hand is empty so basically that show of peace. So it's the same thing as originally. He's got his hand on her shoulder. He's like this is my defensive position because in case you do some crazy move. As long as I have physical contact with you. I could crush you right now. The second was that a good analysis. Originally it kind of works like that. Yeah I love so the question originally like voice that I would that I would be asking is and I think you probably know the question. Same Question I asked many of the people that come on the show. And what is the question circling? Why is it that you don't have a podcast? Your Voice I mean I just. I read their own book ridgely. Well you know yeah I think I probably should have podcast something. We should consider some we talk about. The there is a joint venture partnership involved in that somewhere down the road I had we get behind the sitting at a table earlier with richly. He is absolutely one of the people that we WANNA talk more to over. The course I've had a conversation with ridgely and I don't even remember how we actually originally connected on that conversation but it was one of those that I was very rare that I actually take notes during conversations so I was taking notes. He sent an email. I have a whole series of sentences. He gave me like like I hold a second. You wrote some stuff down. You even emailed it to me after and it was something like in the beginning the stuff that came immediately to you g you like close relationships or partnerships argue is trust important to you. Trust is very important to me or something you remember. Do you remember any of the lines. Of course it starts out like I'm Doug Sandler and I believe in relationships that are based in trust. Oh my gosh. She even remembers the conversation which means that he is either a wise man. Or He's he's gotten says the same things over pretty wise. I think the first thing is originally is a guy that we need to get to know better over the next couple of days but the second thing is in the course of the podcast we need to have more stories that will top the previous stories. I think the only way we're GONNA talk that monks story rise if we talked to Ann about stuffing. Brad Pitt's copies. That's the only story that I can think of that. Would top the muck swimming. We'll tell you when I spent a year at a monastery with about is about the top. Vinnie monks because my mother. I was one of those bad kids that you never wanted. Your kids to how he was at boarding school was at boarding school with walls. That were seven yards thick in one of the eight wonders of the world in Full Lake. Robes what did you. What did you do to get there? I created a bomb. Blew up wall. That exploded this whole bunch of dirt all over a road that block the road and my mom got really upset about that. I was sixteen. Did you really do why the beauty of it is originally is I would say originally probably in your forty s originally with what you said it was? It was free nine eleven so I'm thinking it was pretty really today. If you were to do that he would be in jail for the rest of where I grew up Francisco Franco. The dictator was in charge. And the town that we lived in built fireworks they built rockets so they built the ones that at the end of those fire displays where the whole sky lights up all right. That's what they built in my town and if you live there you can go buy them at wholesale and I went down and I bought a bunch of them and I put them together and put a wire around them and pulled all the rockets off and put one fuse and creative mom because my stepfather beat the shit out of me on a regular basis and I was like this really dark. Turn a really really dark turn this business and and then they sent me away to the monastery all right so we we obviously have some additional stories to tell Atlanta win. Ridgely comes on the show might be supposed to say. I think this is one that you end is should be. It should be doing together when I agree. I one word Chris before we wrap up with originally okay. I happen to know really speaks five languages so in in some other language other than English could you say? Why are you listening to the? Nice guys on Business Channel. We're not and can you say one other language now. Why are you even listening to the Nice guys on business? Simple sooner business right there. That's the you know what we gotta do. We gotta get that studio quality so we gotta get him in a when he comes in records on our show. We'll get into maybe the entire intro and liked it. I'll tune in.

Tell us what you're about and how people can get in touch with you if they want to talk to you about like your amazing service but bookable as he is doing that. Could you do it as a as an interpreter? Like someone that comes only if I say in a different language and then come back and say the shame.

US This was happening in New York Chicago Houston San Francisco Los Vegas Washington Portland plus a look at the NFL team run by women. This is what's news from the Wall Street Journal. I'm Kim Gittleson. Let's get started now before we take a closer look at why tens of thousands of millennials are leaving big. US cities here's what you missed yesterday. The White House released a rough transcript up to president trump's July phone call with Ukraine's President Vladimir's Alinsky it did show that the president asked Mr Linski to investigate Joe Biden and his son done during the call according to the transcript president trump also reminded Mr Zielinski that the US sends military aid to Ukraine however he didn't make an explicit link between the aid and his request for an investigation into the Biden ends now attention in Washington turns to the whistle blower complaint. That's thought to contain MM concerns about the call members of the House and Senate intelligence committees were given copies of the report yesterday their reaction well. Here's Sh- Yvonne Hughes in Washington in Ten it was viewed and secure compartment had locations on both the House and the Senate side now only people on the intelligence committees had access among those were House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to the degree that people did comment and there was not a lot of Democrats came out and said they were extremely extremely concerned. One of those concerned Democrat Adam Schiff the chair of the House Intelligence Committee found the issues deeply elite disturbing. I also found them very credible. Understand why the inspector general credible some Republicans have have defended Mr Trump's activities routine communications with a foreign leader. President trump called it a quote nothing call today Joseph Maguire. The Acting Director Director of national intelligence is set to testify in front of the House intelligence panel. Here's Shivani again. This is going to be front and center because he is the person in who hasn't blocked that whistle blower complaint previously from being sent to the Congress and he's got a lot to answer for. We'll have the latest on what he says has in our afternoon edition meanwhile across the Pond British lawmakers confronted Prime Minister Boris Johnson who hastily returned to London after the UK's supreme. The court found that his decision to suspend parliament for five weeks was illegal. It was a pretty raucous session. Here's what he had to say. This parliament don't miss the stand aside and let this government get done all bring a vote of confidence and finally face the day of reckoning recommend. Mr Johnson also said that he thought the court had been wrong to pronounce on a political question at a time of great national controversy. So what does this mean for Brexit. Here's Jason Douglas from London. Okay well. Things haven't really changed that much. We're still heading for an extension to Brexit brexit and we're still heading forward election. What happens next is Mister. Johnson is GonNa Attempt to renegotiate the withdrawal deal with the European Union even if he manages to come back with a new deal unlikely that parliament will vote for it and Mr Johnson of forty for 'em is a little bit boxed in after that because parliament has already passed a law that says if you can't get a deal then you've got to ask for an extension on Mister. Johnson has said that he would rather die in a ditch than do that so we're still in this stalemate eight. That was Jason Douglas in London now our main story this morning. Have you found yourself priced. Out of a city like New York are Houston latest data from the two thousand eighteen census shows. You might not be alone for the fourth straight year. People between the ages of thirty five and thirty nine have left cities with half a million people or more Charlie Turner has been finding out why from Janet Adamy me Janet in recent months the Wall Street Journal has reported on various migration trends such as young people moving out of New York City and millennials moving to the suburbs. The Journal has analyzed data on young people leaving the city's this from the census. What do the numbers show for the fourth year in a row tens of thousands thousands of young adults. This is millennials and the youngest members of Generation X. have moved out of the nation's biggest cities this was happening in New York Chicago Houston based in San Francisco Las Vegas Washington and Portland. There was of course pretty big influx of young people into cities after the recession and what this latest data data shows is that you know for a couple of years. We've had these disdain declines. There were questions about whether maybe it was just an anomaly of a couple of years or or if this millennial generation was finally starting to move into that next stage of life where they were getting married and buying houses and the big question was are living in a stay and be different than previous generations or are they going to uproot and move to suburbs for more affordable housing more space better schools and what we're seeing in this pattern suggests that as they do get older yes they are starting to act more like previous generations and lust like the kind of anomaly of urban dwellers they have been for for the much of this past decade and we're talking about numbers in the tens of thousands cities with more than half million people put together lost almost twenty seven thousand residents among the ages of twenty five to thirty nine this was last year and although this was. I guess half of the drop in two thousand seventeen and that's still a sizeable decline fine. I think the bigger story here is the pattern so a large batch of cities. Losing tens of thousands of people in the whole scheme of things is not that significant but we had in the middle of the decade. Was You know a pretty steady inflex for a couple of years and I think developers other real estate professionals schools employers to a certain extent have kind of been paying close attention to whether this remains a net inflow or a an outflow and the fact that it's four years of outflow starts to tell us that there's some different behavior going on even if the numbers aren't huge the drop laughter was driven by decline in urban residents. I guess older millennials thirty five to thirty nine. That's right among the youngest millennials in that that very oldest cohort of the Gen Z. That follows them. They are so moving into cities their numbers in the largest it just cities are are marginally positive but where the losses are really happiness. Urban residents aged thirty five to thirty nine again. That's the age at which you no. The people are oftentimes making the decision about where they're going to settle down. They are either you know well into or staring down decisions about schools and what we're finding. Is that that age. Group is a point at which people decide that they don't want to stay anymore and you mentioned schools aren't those basically the primary the reasons they don't like the schools in the big cities and also the cost of housing for the space that they're getting that's right housing costs in general appear to be the biggest factor her and that's in cities that are relatively affluent as well as ones that are struggling more interestingly the there were some research out of Boston. University that found in a study of mirrors errors that only thirteen percent said that the housing stock in their city fit the population's very well so there's a real mismatch between the kind of housing people want and the kind of housing housing that's available and said he's not it does appear to be the main.
