"Today's story starts as soon as many good stories. Do with a german chemist whose family vig was one of the people who invented modern chemistry as a field and his contributions are vast in laboratory science and culture in nutrition. And once again we have the wonderful flavor historian nadia bernstein on the show and for the purposes of today's episode leagues contributions to agriculture are. Not the most important. We're interested in his nutrition. Science at the time in the eighteen hundreds scientists were hard work trying to understand. What the heck food actually was. This is kind of what chemists were up to you back then in the nineteenth century they were like. There's all of this stuff in the world what is it made of. Let's figure it out and name it. It's not just name it but decide which bits of it were essential chemists. Were trying to break food down into its elemental parts and understand exactly which parts we needed to survive in the eighteen thirties. Scientists named and identified protein and they found it particularly fascinating so why not just keep breaking things down was the trend at the time and scientists noticed that different protein-rich foods seem to be made up of slightly different building blocks. These are what we call amino acids today. If you think about proteins as molecules i mean most of us aren't thinking about perkins molecules. But if you imagine it it's sort of long molecule that's composed of a lot of different component parts of which are amino acids and what hydrolysis is basically this process of blasting that big molecule apart into these constituent pieces. This is in fact. Exactly what did hydrolysis he took hydrochloric acid and used it to break down or dissolve matt and then figure out what the different kinds of amino acids were lee bigs. Big breakthrough was identifying one particular amino acid creating which he then also found in the muscles of living animals. He found it in especially high levels in the muscles of a fox that died while it was running. And that's what led him to the conclusion that creating was the key to muscle action. People had been claiming that meat was important for health for a really long time but leagues contribution was to show at least based on his science at the time that the protein in meat was critical for muscles and so it was an essential component of a nutritious diet. League went as far as to say that the protein element of food was the only true nutrient meet. Was it said when his friend's daughter came down with typhoid league. Knew exactly what she needed me but she was too sick to digest solid foods. So league took some cook chicken. He grounded up. He soaked it in hydrochloric acid to dissolve it altogether at what he thought was critical creating. Then he added another chemical to neutralize the acid and turn it into table salt and then he gave the young girl this salty savory broth and she recovered and this led to what became one of his most popular discoveries at the time league was able to use chemistry to create a modern version of beef tea leaf. Tea had been popular with the sensitive and the sick leave for a few decades. The idea was that invalids. He were too delicate to eat. A great big steak could still get all its goodness by boiling that stake in water straining it and then drinking the resulting meat juices. Basically the idea is if your sickly. If you're wasting away with any of the numerous diseases that may have afflicted the dickensian populace mid nineteenth century. What you want to do is to get an easily and readily absorbable. Both sort of strengthening food of protein leagues was different from traditional beef t. He didn't need to boil meat for hours. To break it down. He could use hydrochloric acid to league. This meant he could keep in more of the good stuff from meat in the broth. He thought boiling. It was less effective. So liebenberg's beefed. He was kind of this. Concentrate at this sort of hydrolysed blasted part beef proteins made into a liquid broth that sickly little orphans and delicate women could sip and thus beyond the way to restoring their health lee big published his beef tea formula and a quickly became all the rage with fragile elite searching for something to pep up their delicate constitution pharmacists would make up a big batch. Evaporated and zealot under the name extract. Carney's extractive meet. It was classified as a legal drug. in germany. in fact it was considered so essential that pharmacists were required to keep it in stock. Doctors reported that league's formula for extractives. Carney's could be useful for tuberculosis. Typhus various dumped arrangements. and scruffy. One doctor said it could be a useful substitute for brandy and cases of exhaustion. Depression and despondency. I'd rather have a brandy but the point is leaving. High tech version of beef d. was a wonder drug in the eighteen fifties. It was thought of as a way to give the goodness of muscle forming meat to the week in puny
75 Years After Anne Frank, Is She Still The Poster Child For The Holocaust?
"In many ways and frank has become the poster child for the horrors of the Holocaust. Almost everyone has read. The published diary of the young girl who hid from the Nazis during their occupation of the Netherlands was arrested with the rest of her family during a rate of their secret annex and died of typhus with her sister in the Bergen Belsen concentration camp around this time in nineteen forty five through her published. Work a fifteen year old girl with hopes and dreams made the Holocaust accessible for young people her age and younger. I personally read the story of Anne Frank in eighth grade out loud on a cassette tape which my English teacher played for years to come because she wanted students to hear the story in a young girl's voice she did not even know. I was Jewish but that was more than three decades ago. And it's been seventy five years since Anne Frank died is an frank still a poster child for the Holocaust anymore. Has she been forgotten? Our producer Condo and I venture to a nearby college campus to Test Young People's knowledge. And here's what we heard. The anniversary of a well known figure is coming up and we WANNA know if you recognize her name and frank. I do recognize her name. Okay who wishes she was a teenager during the Holocaust. I believe she was living in Germany and she has become a figure in the American literary Canon and in American Academia. I believe because her diary was recovered which chronicled her efforts to stay hidden. When Nazi Germany was actively seeking out an executing Jews by sending them to concentration camps. I Know Anne Frank you know Anne Frank who is she she is. She was a young girl who during the Holocaust. She hid in the attic of someone's House. I don't know the details. And she wrote a diary that became very famous. How old are you? I'm nineteen nineteen. When did you learn about Anne? Frank I wanNA say like maybe fourth grade during elementary school. Oh that's a good question was a young girl who I guess. That's kind of her story. She was a young girl during during unfortunate time. Who's forced to hide? And you know we thankfully have her story because she documented it. How old are you? I'm seventeen so we're asking young people like yourself. If you know who Anne Frank is I don't know you do. Not so and frank was a young girl who was hidden. She was German born and grew up in the Netherlands and was Was Jewish and I think. Some of her story yeah. She wrote a diary and while she was in hiding and her father founded after the war and had it published as during the Holocaust during the Holocaust. Remember all right wonderful. She was Jewish kid who was alive during the Second World War. Very good passed away in a concentration camp. And when did you learn about Anne Frank? I think like three or four years ago. Wow and how old are you? I'm eleven so the name is Anne. Frank yes who is she? I don't know that much. I know this museum about her life. Okay all right Do you know where it is now. The family was arrested by the Nazis. She was taken to a concentration camp. That's where she died with her sister but her father survived and went back to the hiding place and his secretary had held onto her diary. And that was what was then published as the diary of a young girl and it was her account of being in hiding from the Nazis during World War Two. We have important anniversary coming up for a very well known figure and so. We're asking young people if they recognize the name ready and frank of course okay. Who is she and frank how she was the girl that was like hiding out? I remember reading the book like in Grade School. I barely remember the details. But I'm pretty sure she was like a little girl. Does hiding out for the Nazis as she was her diary book. Yeah so we're asking this because we want to know whether young people have forgotten and frank is how old are you? I'm twenty when did you learn about Anne Frank? I believe pretty early on definitely an elementary school third grade or something. I remember we were going through a very general history class and I believe she was a writer. I know that and she died. They discovered her books and all that and she was like making a diary or something about it the war so it was really important. Do you know how old she was when she died? Wall something very close. She was fifteen when she died. Did you read Anne Frank's diary when you were growing up or anything based on it? No I remember like learning about it at school. We're asking young people this question because we have to wonder like do people even know who and frank is. Feels like new information

Jessica Biel denies she's anti-vaccination
"Digestive bills, and actress movies, and TV, Justin timberlake's, or husband and for some reason, I don't know what these these dopey actresses. She decided to get into the vaccination debate. She appeared with opponents of the new vaccination legislation. Now the new legislation. Is really simple and necessary. If you get a doctor's note, to exempt your child from vaccine, it goes to an agency in, in, Sacramento to make sure it's for real, because a lot of doctors are getting bullied by the crazy anti vaccine, mommies, and the writing out fake exemption forms. So the state's onto it in fact, the, the author of the Bill is a doctor. We've had him on the show state Senator Richard Penn from Sacramento. He says unscrupulous doctors are granting exemptions. For profit, and because they're under pressure. From individual parents, especially influential ones. Other words, rich people rich people, a pitcher, they're offering bribes to the doctors. And a bit to the doctors are charging extra for the exemption, so the doctors are corrupt and Jessica Biel decided to jump into this. She's she appeared with Robert F Kennedy jR, who is completely out of his mind. I mean chest up public. Lunatic. And. So she was supporting she was against this legislation. She joined a lobbying campaign against it. And people jumped all over her on social media and now her feelings are hurt. It's just trying to explain herself. She goes that she was not an anti vaccine that she's not against vaccinations. She supports children getting vaccinations. But families have the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians. Well except they're not making educated medical decisions. But they're, they're bullying the doctors and that doctors are saying, okay, pay me extra. What I see the phrase under pressure from influential individuals was that sound like that says, like, rich people pay it off the doctor, doesn't it? I mean. These anti vaccine people. Usually, people would do anything to keep children from getting sick suffering, and dying, but not anymore. It's like it used to be that we would do anything to keep a typhoid fever, or typhus or appetites are Mercer outbreak from happening not anymore. There were nine hundred eighty one cases of the measles, so far this year. Largest number in twenty seven years. And. Everyone's trying to say I'll, but you have to trust the doctors and you have to understand. It's a sacred bond between the doctors and the parents. Now it's corrupt doctors take money that Mike everybody else. What do you think they prescribe all the all the nutty drugs that everybody's on? After doctors get rewarded for prescribing. You those pills. That's why they push them

"We're gonna another update on Stephen cover now for months and that concerns typhus and L A city hall, as you know, deputy city attorney, she said L A city deputy attorney Elizabeth Greenwood contracted typhus while working at her job at city hall, east months ago, and she went out on sick leave in October. And was diagnosed in November with typhus they flee born illness. It can spread when fleas bite rats later pests, the bacteria onto people, and there are lots of rats around city hall because of all the homeless and the garbage and the food that attracts the rats and the fleas bite, the rats, and then bite the people, and that's how was Greenwood got so terribly sick. The he she's gotten a stiff arm from everybody at city hall, and we're going to have her explain their behavior. Because now she's filed a five million dollar legal claim saying that Garcetti city attorney, Mike Fuhr whole city council allowed the garbage in the feces to accumulate which led to the rats and the fleas and her typhus. So let's get let's get lozad here. Liz, welcome to John and Ken show. Again. How are you? I'm doing better. Thank you very much for asking. Yeah. How is your health? First of all. I I was finally able to a doctor on Thursday. And I got the Okita by the all clear to go back to work. Oh, so that's why you had much better. Good. All right. So now, there's there's a story here that you've you're not being allowed to return to work. What's that about? The I was cleared to return to well since I was sick since I got sick and the doctor wouldn't allow me to drive on December twentieth. Twenty eighteen I have been trying to work from either an office in San Pedro where I live or from home just doing one motion work, and they for months have refused that accommodation. So when I got the awkward to drive and go back to work on Thursday. I went back toward on Friday. And my office had been the my computer my desk, Mike share had been removed. And when I went to HR to give them my return to work letter day and ask when the stuff was going to come back. They put me on ministry to fleas, and that we'll let you know when to come back to work and where to show up. What's that about he being? Punished. I don't know they haven't they haven't expounded upon that. So they just I assume I'm being punished, but because I filed a grievance since they weren't accommodating the medical restriction. So I filed that on Wednesday. And then on Friday me home on on paid administrative leave. So now, I'm healthy fully capable of working than they won't allow me to. So people understand case they missed the story of the first time around. Describe your symptoms. Why were you unable to work for so many months? I had I basically had bacterial meningitis. It was typhus that was causing with the bacteria that caused the minutes Itis, but I had the worst headache. I ever had. I lost my equilibrium. I couldn't eat. I had one hundred degree fever, and it almost killed me that and it took months to recover from the the one of the things that I walked because typhus affected by spinal column, and my brain one of the things that I lost my equilibrium. And so it took a long time. Even once the type is was cured. Bacteria was killed. It's still a long time for my sense of balance to come back, and I had vertigo. And so the the doctors wouldn't let me drive because three or four. Times a week the world would just spin. And it's not safe to drive a car when that happens. Our euro. So you're taking months off to recover from this terrible illness, which was caused by their neglect legally, what are your protections to hold onto your job. I mean, could they just fire you could they permanently walk you from working and pay you for years on end? I mean, what what can they do to you in theory? They can do that. I don't I don't understand why they're doing what they're doing in in. I had run out of six times. So they cut off my health insurance. And I was seeing the industrial Dr through the workers compensation program off your health insurance. Yes. They did. They ran out of that. And that that's a legal Hoover. Did they have to hide? I know they don't have to do that. I can't believe that. Wait a second. We've got typhus from from them allowing all the feces and garbage to build up around the homeless, and then they cut off your medical insurance. Seriously. Seriously. What the hell's going out of his mind? Well, this is this is the city attorney's office. It's they they and then the city attorney's office had that my typhus was not industrially related. So I didn't I no longer have access to the industrial Dr to the infectious disease control, doctor what does that mean industrial related in? It means it's not work related. I'm sorry. Hey, it's it they closed the workers comp case saying that I didn't get the typhus at work. Even though I have five medical personnel. That say that I contracted typhus at city hall east to almost to a ninety nine percent certainty that I contracted it there because they had tons of as and in fact, her western hiawatha carpeting removed from his office because of all the fleas. Yes. At the same time that I was infected right now, I saw this coming because Liz, I think the last time we had you on they Trump it into report that they sent in the extermination people. They couldn't find any fleas in city hall. I think they were trying to set you up for exactly what you're talking about that you could not have gotten this type as at work. Right. The the problem with that report is that when I was in fact, did it was mid October. And it was eighty degrees outside please survive and thrive heat, they are little per insect. So. From stepping aids fifteenth during that week, it was sixty degrees outside and fleas are dormant in the winter. So of course, they wouldn't find any fleas because it wasn't hot. Liz, can you hold on? We're going to talk. Yeah. This is Liz Greenwood we're trying to get the phone a little bit improved. The signal. She is a deputy city attorney for the city of LA we've been talking to on and off now for months last October. She got sick eventually was diagnosed with typhus, which here's the key to the story. She knows came from city hall east and her workplace, but the city has done since then you heard about our insurance and worker's comp claim is closed and not wanting to return to work. They're trying to shut her out here because they don't want this story to be perpetuated that she got typhus at work. They're trying to make it look like there's no fleas here. Whenever happened to her happens somewhere else a bunch of raw when we know some of the vagrants downtown had typhus, and there's a lot of trash around city hall. It was typhus, and it was because of the homeless, and because of the rats and the fleas that's really what happened and there are a bunch of scumbags if they're trying to so Ryan a claim. Anything else just Garcetti and fewer and the rest of meant any conscience at all. We'll talk about her claim five million dollars, which she can understand. Now why she's doing this? But we'll get more details when we come back. John and Ken show.
Cyclone Idai survivors urgently need safe shelter, water and sanitation, says Red Cross
"This is Matt wells at UN news people acted by tropical cyclone e die in southern Africa urgently need, clean, water, sanitation, facilities and shelter. The international federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies or IFRC said on Monday warning that some areas of Mozambique still remain inaccessible because of the unprecedented flooding in an interview with Daniel Johnson from you a news IFRC secretary general El hajj ac- described the huge scale of need he witnessed on a visit to the country last Friday when we have so many people are affected by a flat at the scale of magnitude that we experiencing right now in Mozambique and the precarious situations of the closet centers as well as the shelter facilities. We are really sitting on a water sanitation hygiene ticking bomb three thousand people in a school of fifteen classes and six dollars in only whereas this Barra imbera that is really a. A recipe for disaster. And then what about diseases can happen like cholera typhus like also in a malady and enemy country like Mozambique? And we kind of you know, mammary cases so intervening quick on water sanitation hygiene and clean water is critical inland. Did you get to go inland? People still clambering onto roost to save themselves. Yes. People are clamoring on everything that is on higher ground in places that are not really accessible right now. Because of the difficulty of getting the this type of disaster do not only affect the local communities, but they affect also the responders would want want. You know, we can have all the means. But getting there because of high tide getting there because of relation is very difficult. Sometimes we have to do maybe what not prefer to do in terms of relief like trumping items and offer Menelik after but in some instances, unfortunately, our daughter's the only way that you could access people. So you're asking for thirty and a half million. Swiss francs about the same in dollars. What is that going to provide for how long and for how many thirty point five million Swiss franc is the appeal of the Red Cross and our crescent in a movement to respond to this disasters for shelter because so many people have lost their houses. And then they need to be in shelters in a dignified manner, water sanitation and hygiene is very critical we're deploying what we call emergency response unit for sanitation that will be taking care of twenty thousand people every day. We also deploying two field hospitals, and that will be addressing the need of twenty thousand people with all the needs that are customized told response customized to the needs in our in Mozambique. And we also have a very important component, which is protection and psychosocial support for children, women and girls who are particularly traumatize and disproportionately affected by this crisis. Have you ever seen anything quite like this? Yes, unfortunately, I've seen that. I've seen it in Iran. I've seen it. But for Mozambique that is quite unprecedented. That is one of the worst catastrophic situation than Muslim because experience in the last years.

But when you get rid of indoor plumbing, or if you if you live a life without it on the sidewalk amongst human filth, then those diseases come back so scientific American listed three quote, Los Angeles, recently, experienced outbreak of typhus. In downtown streets. Official how about this officials briefly closed part of city hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building. They had to close city hall in Los Angeles. Because they thought the rats might spread typhus inside the Bill, and it's amazing. You would think that that would be a major wake up call for politicians? But this is the problem because now it's starting to affect them. Alas? It did not so typhus back in the day back in the middle ages were kill hundreds of thousands of people just in one fell swoop Napoleon when he was retreating from Moscow in eighteen twelve more of his soldiers died from typhus than from the Russian army. Hundreds of thousands of people at a time just got typhus, and that's making a comeback in LA people in Washington state have been infected with shigella bacteria, which is thread spread through feces. And causes the disease sugarloaf's diarrheal disease. At another disease which spreads through body. Lice causes trench fever. What's trench fever? Trench fever is what killed one million soldiers during World War. One twice called trench fever. And then also which we had here in San Diego spread primarily through feces infected more than a thousand people in southern California in the past two years. So these these. We're all diseases back in the day, especially in cities because not too long ago. You would take your bucket of human waste, and you would throw it out the window onto the city sidewalks below there's a rumor, and I'm not sure if this is direly true. But that men stand on the outside of women. I always thought it was in case of an oncoming car or something you could best that was a man supposed to stay on the outside of the inside closest to the road. Yes. That's what I thought. Okay. But the real reason that that started I heard this. I don't know if this is your should I should I say, I don't think it's true. Or should. I just go with it. Like it is too late now. Okay. I don't think this is true necessarily. But because when someone throws a bucket of human waste out the window. It's less likely to land on the woman because the women's on the inside than it is demand. And that's why the man stands on the outside. Okay. I could also see a situation where you would throw it off into the street and then like on a rainy day when a car drive. By splashes up. Smart. You're closest to the road to take that on the only problem that one is back when this happened. There were no cars, which is next. Exactly. But now, I think about this. We should maybe reevaluate where a man stands when walking down the sidewalk. Of course, this assumes gender and. About a really traditional careful points. I'm making I think the man should stand on the inside now because I feel like the biggest threat in downtown St. are people hiding inside of an alleyway or a little like a little cove and the door goes inside the building limits. I feel like a mansions down inside. Yeah. Kinda wrestle with that one too. Because I do follow the rule, so I make a conscious effort, and you can talk to my wife. She'll tell you. I'm always scooting around like lining it up. I'm trying to get I'm trying to end up on the correct side of the street 'cause I don't wanna look like a melon head, right? When someone does human waste outside of the. We're just I figure I don't even know why I just I know that that's what you're supposed to do. So that's what I what I do. I think we should reevaluate because I'm often like switching around on on the sidewalk. Okay. So here's the question. Do you? Do you do that in case because you care what? Other people feel if they saw you standing on the wrong side due to genuinely protect your wife because if it's to genuinely protect your wife, I think you should now stand on the inside or a strong argument can be made. I think it's strong argument could be made. I think you switched sides back and forth. I think you Patty on the threat. Yeah. Exactly. But ultimately, really I was just doing it. Because I was told that's what you do. Well, maybe there's a case to be made that stand the outside still because of the oncoming car because Eric everyone knows if an oncoming cars coming at you true swerves off the road onto.

Medieval diseases coming back is let's be very grateful for indoor plumbing. Thank a plumber today. Hundred seven sixty K F NBA, vibrant water. Speaking of plumbing, you can hook this up to your plumbing, very easily very simply no electricity needed no drain needed, which would be a big hassle. If you did have to do that. I don't even know how that really worth it just seems like a lot of work. But here's the deal with water completely underwater.

You saw that gross stuff in your pipes. And you know, the first of all to ruining your pipes, which we'll get to. But it's going inside your body and drink drinking. That's not good.

"Kelly news. We're going to get to this hour. It looks like his former lawyer this is scandal. I know his former lawyer says that R Kelly was guilty as hell in that child pornography trial. He was acquitted in eleven years ago. Also that he might need like anti libido drugs to control himself and Michael Jackson news as well. There has been an interview from nineteen Ninety-three that has been unearthed is of La Toya Jackson when she was on tour, and she talks about the crimes that her brother was committing. So we'll play that for you to coming up this hour. Well, we have long documented the typhus outbreak in Los Angeles, and the typhus outbreak that seems to have moved into city hall. There was talk that they were gonna have to rip out all the carpets of city hall and city hall east this happened after an employee of city attorney Mike Fuhrer reported that she was diagnosed with typhus, she's a deputy city attorney or name's Elizabeth Greenwood, and she says she was diagnosed with typhus last year, she found insect bites on her shin while she was working there at city hall east. She said she had symptoms that include severe Disney dizziness one hundred and two degree fever. The worst headache. She said she ever had in our entire life. Of course, typhus can be spread to humans through flea bites contact with the with the feces of infected fleas as well that sounds lovely. So the city council response to Elizabeth's typhus by calling for an. Audits of rodents and flees within city hall. Including that assessment of whether they need to rip out the the carpets. Now city employees have complained about the route situation for months, they say they've found rodent droppings partially eaten house plans tiny pop rings prints on their paperwork three rats were caught in. What are the council woman's offices? Let me ask you this Wayne and they were downloading they were bittorrent Torrington music if we're sitting here right now in a rat runs across the desk here. Do you think it would take months of complaints for them to bring someone in and deal with that rat? Maybe I don't think. So I think if we went to Robin. We said we have rats and droppings in our office, she would act immediately. Because that's what you do when you run a successful organization. That's true. You're right. I mean, good Lord said work with. Droppings for months. The key of your comparison is this what you do when you run a successful organization. This is city hall for the city of Los Angeles. They brought in a cleanup crew several cleanup crews that have been working for the past month to attack the rat problem, they've been pruning, the fakest trees outside city hall, paring, back other vegetation, they say. But rats continue to be spotted on the south lawn of city hall, including during the daylight hours. Maybe it was from that occupy movement when God knows what's still left. No, just jar deep down in the soil on all I remember were those like milk. The the gallons of milk containers, just filled with urine. Now, are you going to talk about the I'll never forget what Steve Gregory found when he went into one of those porta potties. I'm not going to go into details. But it was occupy people to bring that up and then not tell I just I just talked about. I just did. Because I can't keep secrets he walked into the porta potty found too dirty occupied people in in in the motions. So anyway, they hired this firm to assess the presence of fleas at city hall. They say they've found no fleas. This is a company based out of north Hollywood. It's called cats USA pest control. And it says it found nothing out of the ordinary during inspections. It did find fungus gnats, ants flies, centipedes and other insects. But no fleas. Oh, that's good. Well, they're still the rats, the rats still exist. Right. But how you're not getting the typhus from the rats showed the employees who got typhus if there are no fleas that suggests she didn't get it at city hall, but you're still dealing with rats at that should separate problem. Yeah. There's even a sign at city hall now that that they gives you tips on how to avoid attracting rodents. Do you imagine that you show up for work on Monday? And there's a sign on your office door. It says, hey, don't feed the squirrels. I thought rat control is a discipline. That's been around for decades and decades and decades, you'd think in the modern times, they could get rid of the rats. But it seems like they're kinda throwing up their hands a little bit. Especially now that they don't have fleas. I guarantee they're like, well, we don't have fleas. So I guess really try. We'll do our best. But sometimes you just going to have to have some rats. Guess what Wayne ski.

Los Angeles City Council’s president suggests to deploy ‘army of cats’ to deal with rat situation
"This story which was published an hour ago by the El Segundo times and their city hall reporter Dakota Smith. Yeah. Has got me so angry. I'm about to start smashing the walls. It's about the typhus. And today the city council met with people from various Los Angeles city departments like general services to find out what they're going to do about the rodents were talking largely about the rats that have been tested city hall city hall east. And if you're listening to the John and Ken show, you know, why they're there. It's because of the trash mobile homeless encampments something that CD leaders refuse to acknowledge. But it came up sideways in this story, which has got the infuriated. But I the funny part herb Wesson, the Los Angeles city council president piped up and said how about an army of cats. Let's unleash an army of cats throughout city hall. Stop the rats to get the rats, and then someone said, well, no, the the fleas will just jump on the cats, and you have the same problem. And then the cats by diet typhus or the cats may come to you in the fleas jump off. On you. And you got typhus not a good idea. What? What he's such an idiot. But you say about a guy who ignores all the vagrants and their filth and recommends cats. To fight the problem. What do you do with a guy like that? Next is as close as we come from Westlund Garcetti on the real source of the problem west and said, we do have issues. There's too many reports of rodents, but I don't think it's because of skid row not entirely. I don't think it's because of the building being torn down east of here. Now that was the initial explanation. They gave when they tore down the old LAPD headquarters in unleashed this army of typhus rats and fleas, which is BS that really is. But speaking recently to channel seven here comes Garcetti. Oh, man. This is what got me annoyed the risk of contracting typhus is being blown out of proportion. Oh, it's been rats since I've been here. He was elected to the council a one. There is one case it may or may not have come from them. But they're still is in the normal range of what we have each year. Really typhus. I don't think anybody heard. I mean, I never heard of this. Nobody I know has heard of typhus and typhus, you know, what they're all overlooking. There was. One hundred and forty three cases on skid row. You're trying to say this is a one off. This is a bizarre fluke. This has never happened before it happened in the autumn a hundred and forty three cases not far from city hall. Skid row, isn't that far away? Garcetti knows that he's got the homeless problem which already harpooned his chance for running for president. But on top of that homeless people with typhus a disease that when people hear it. They're like, what did you say typhus, maybe evil typhus, it's such a bad PR nightmare. He's gone into full denial mode. And now he's trying and by the way, also in the articles the woman we talked to lift Greenwood she felt like she was being mocked by Garcetti. I'm just a one off crazy person who may or may not have gotten typhus from city hall fleas keep using that phrase because I think they're afraid that they're going to get sued for creating a dangerous disease ridden environment. So they keep putting in a little qualifier. Well, may or may not really don't. Oh, for sure Liz says it's a serious issue. Which is why I went public. The problem is feces and urine and the rotting trash around city hall. Yeah. She says the rats and the fleas aren't the problem. Those are the. Eight a bit her her paragraph is at the end of Dakota Smith story, it that should be the beginning be the daily story that the rotting garbage and the feces is what's causing the typhus. So your pounding and pounding and Garcetti went on to say, well, this is his post as he comes the larger problem is making sure that we end homelessness in Los

There have been many reports of rats at other critters running rampant through city hall. The city employees was diagnosed with the bacterial disease back in November. She believes she was infected at work and refuses to return to the job until city hall east. Is thoroughly fumigated. I was so sick. I thought it was going to die who thinks of typhus. I think of typhus is something that I read about in history books symptoms of typhus include fever chills and severe rashes extreme cases can be deadly. There were one hundred forty two confirmed cases of typhus in LA county last year. No mention that the rats have to eat the feces and the food in the garbage that the vagrants leave. Outside city hall somehow. It's just what do you think the typhus comes from? Where do you think the bacteria comes from the rats don't manufacture the bacteria? The fleas don't manufacture the bacteria with the way. The news report was worded. Oh, there's rats, and there's mice and there's fleas. But at least they didn't run with the city's cover explanation that it was the building next door being torn down right at released the road who have the typhus with their fleets. Who else?

"For typhus that is unacceptable to me. And as mayor I'm gonna make sure that that has changed. But four months later, the garbage is once again piling up on Sarah's and all over L A and the latest numbers from the state health department show, a record number of typhus cases in LA county in two thousand eighteen at least a hundred and twenty four people and more than eighty percent of those cases occurred outside downtown LA. Oh boy. All right. So the the the population. It's it's a these things are spread by what are called vectors vectors are things that spread it beyond. Its original source. So rats spread out into the community to get off the rats onto our pets and the vector gets to us in our communities wherever we live, right or the fleas get onto the homeless people amongst the trash where the rats. Live as well. And the homeless are going to be the first victims. They're gonna major source reservoir victims these poor people are languishing with mental health issues. Now, we're going to give them infectious diseases, and as deputy city attorney who got infected is because the homeless live near city hall, and the rats are getting inside the buildings of city hall, and the fleas are now infesting the carpets that they're now pulling up and she works inside city hall and the fleas are crawling up on your ankles in onto your body's while you're working, and she has typhus. So that's one disease that comes this direction. And what's growers? I forget the MSCI reporter he's so good. Anyway, he he he's the man you heard speaking there and what I told him was. Yes, you're right. That this is an Joel Grover. This is this is a reservoir illness in southern California that will blossom and it occurs because of how you've overlooked how it is that humans living concentrated environments. But there are other things that come with that the rats also have an organism called Arsenio Orsini pestis. They've been three cases in Wyoming as our senio begins to make its way into the all again with that heard of the illness that your senior caused you may or may not it's called bubonic plague another disease that we've all heard about and it's only medieval because in throughout human history. Since medieval times, we've understood that you cannot allow sanitation to breakdown basic functions of civilization to break down because people suffer an infectious diseases breakout. Also from fleas it's spread by fleas be spread by multiple mechanisms once because you only have very tiny source of that to begin to spread it spread in the rat feces and the fleas in the rats and the rat bites in the human to human transmission, it's all over the place. So and by the way, you heard that description of typhus with a severe headache, and she felt like railroad ties were like going through her eyeballs in coming out back. It feels like put your hands and feet. Also feel like they're on fire because it causes a vascular status, which is an inflammation of your arteries, and that inflammation can cause stroke. It can cause death. It can cause complications is a really serious phenomenon. I can't say it strongly. I'm actually more free of typhus than I am of the plague in terms of plague I've I've always seen a couple of cases of plague and they did not seem severe. Can I ask you this question? Type is going to create panic. When people hear that it's with us so council, president herb Wesson is finally saying, okay? We he filed this motion we need to have this rat infestations. They put out these traps they discovered that. Yes. Fleas are all over there. Bouncing around the carpets. Okay. Let's rip up the carpets. And we're gonna clean up a city hall and city hall east, and we're going to lay down new carpets or Dido, fumigate, whatever we're gonna do. But that isn't taken care of the problem because what if the routes come back late more fleas, Dr drew don't we need to take care of the problem? Yes. Because I watched the report, and if you look outside city hall and city hall east, oh what's in front of the building homeless people? And by the way in the carts and all of their stuff you by the way want to leave the homeless to live on the street. Okay. I don't think that's fair to them. But okay, but you cannot allow the sanitation to break down in the food debris to pile up and their own individual sanitation, a breakdown you can't do that. So if you're going to have homelessness, you must care for the homeless, at least if you're not going to house them, you must care for the inevitability of the infectious diseases that are created know for a fact for the people that go out and try to reach out to the homeless at sometimes it takes fourteen or more contacts with a homeless person each time to get them to take a shower because of their mental health issues. So which is why carpets and try. Laid down new ones. The fleas are going to be back immediately. Oh, yeah. So what I'm saying is just ripping up the carpets is not taking care of the problem. It's ripping off a band aid on wounded putting on a new one. It's going to be bloody immediately. Essentially, I mean, I think I think the they marrying up your where I'm betting there's a food source in those carpets for the rats the rats are getting in as well. So you may get rid of the homeless guy's living right in front of the doors of city hall when you walk in chances are they're still going to be fleas rats right there. Yeah. Yeah. Because you're not taking care of the homeless people. Thank you. Now, I understand though, Mitch Englander I can tell you. But don't you think they're only doing this and take care of the problem because a deputy city attorney got sick not because the homeless people got. My patient that got in Pasadena. They don't give a rat's. So the other thing is that if you try to take care of these folks in the fashion that there need to be taken care of they won't allow it the patients won't allow because they're going. Yeah. As Mitch Englander found out Elliott city councilman who set up showers it took on average fourteen context to get one homeless person one shower. So if you think you're going to be able to maintain things. Essentially assign a professional each homeless person if you're going to keep the maintained in the streets, which is why which is why throughout civilization we have not done that because it's not possible. It's in your and it's gonna get bad. I'm telling you, this is the way I felt when in twelve years ago when I was screaming about the opioid epidemic. Are there certain things? I just know as a practice as a medical practitioner. I just know it it's I'm a biologist. I'd have thirty five years of experience. I know when things have jumped off the rail are new the opiate thing was a freaking catastrophe. I was screaming about it this footage of me twelve years ago and Larry King go after he ledger died saying, no, no, no he's an addict, he died of not his fault. The doctors did this to him. It's an opiate Pennzoil convoy guarantee if they hadn't released information yet way and he's just the league. And I kept saying it's a soon NAMI, it's a soon NAMI it's coming because I was dealing with it every day now dealing with this every day. So I'm telling you, I wouldn't call this a sooner. Mommy. I I would call this a ticking time bomb, and I don't believe the soon. Nami is gonna wash over as actually I if I were predicting the future, my fear is once you get the plague breaking out people are gonna freak the hell out and do something reflexive and not properly take care of these poop poor people that are languishing all over the place. That's actually one of my concerns. And then you do something massive and sweeping be is a panic. And who knows how bad that panic and again people in panic don't do. Well, so I would like people in the government held criminally accountable for allowing people to die. If any one of the rest of us made active decisions or ignored warnings that directly materially resulted in someone's death, any of us in any job on earth would be held accountable. Government officials if anything should be held more accountable than the rest of us, and they are ignoring this. And it is. Is profound. It is. It is unconscionable. I if somebody's an attorney or thinks there's any sort of legislate, I I'm working down the legislative Pat trying to help with gravely disabled and conservative ship. So we can help these poor people. So they don't die of the infectious diseases that are about to break out. So that end were slowly taking care of Catherine bargain has got a coalition going with the ACLU, and they're beginning to create beds for people any chronic services. So it the the battleship the aircraft carriers slightly shifting, but it's a little late in this game. And in the meantime, I like to put a fire under elected officials and held them accountable. Just we I'd be held accountable. If something I did something why will reckless negligence, there's something called reckless negligence, and this is active. This is this is beyond reckless negligible negligence. This you're busy and you make horrible mistakes. This is active denial of the truth for political expediency. I don't know what to call that. Yeah. It's so onerous. So do you think the the problem is so big that they're paralyzed by it or they just not take refusing refusing refusing technology. They don't have the money or the. Can we get Joe Grover on the phone later today? I would love to talk to him it because I'm on. He's the one that's chasing down. There are heading. He's one of the journalists that gets gets what's going on here. And and he he he should go talk to people that have more people to have the onus too. So they can form a coalition of some type and he needs to keep his eye on her Sandia because he'll be right there at the at the outbreak when it happens. Do we have anybody here in southern California that has plagued no Wyoming? But it's. Wyoming's close. Yeah. I know that's too close. But it's it's in I guarantee you it's already here. It just hasn't.

"Now, fifty three in Laguna beach. It's the same intestine forty eight in Fontana and fifty five in Sherman oaks, we lead local live from the KFI twenty four hour newsroom. I'm Debra Mark. John and Ken show. John kobylt and Ken chiampou KFI AM six forty it. Sure. Is right. So one of the things we did yesterday which were working on following up. His we interviewed the Los Angeles deputy city attorney. And her name is Lee Greenwood now, we got a tip on this story from NBC fours investigative team led by Joel Grover who did a story about typhus still showing up in downtown LA, particularly since our guest list. Liz Greenwood got typhus a couple of months ago, and she's still has not returned to work. She got it original symptoms in October. And it took a few weeks to diagnose and she works in one of the city hall buildings city hall east, which is across the street from city hall, and it's connected by a bridge that goes over the road in between. Now, you have large homeless encampments surrounding. These buildings, and there's an enormous number of rats feasting on the garbage in the food and the feces the rats attract flees, the fleas bite, the rats. Get the typhus than bite people like Liz green wedding. She gets typhus and the typhus comes from the bacteria in the food and the poop in whatever's rotting in there that hellhole steps pool of a measurement. All this Garcetti's. Workplace. Pete are his employees's in his administration. People may think well, this is just the honest bottom line. Well, I guess just the homeless are getting the typhus, but it doesn't work that way. And remember the hepatitis outbreak that hit San Diego and parts of LA. It's the same kind of problem. But but with city hall east downtown LA, there's a lot of people that go there for work. And it's a lot of people that roam around there, and these fleas hopping around with typhus there in the carpeting, you're playing an ugly game of roulette right there in the carpeting, I had longtime ago, my wife, and I I moved into the we had a cat. She got fleas fleas multiplied in our carpeting, oh like crazy. I mean, we had to get the big bug bug bombing, exterminate everything. But once they start mating and reproducing they love to burrow in the warm fibers of carpet. No, so everybody working at at city hall there. You're all doomed, and you're all to get typhus. We should probably get also a medical expert on to explain. How it all begins? In other words, when you have the trash, right? And you have the feces does do the fleas come that already have typhus or do they acquire it somehow from from the I think I think the fleas get it from biting, the rats and the rats have consumed garbage and feces food oh incentives. Unsanitary conditions. So see the rats have these incredible immune systems because they've seen it. All right. Then they eat a around a million years rats don't get sick. Evolution is given them quite the immune system. You know, we can die from typhus because we don't have it immune system against it. Because we live and better sanitary conditions. That's the downside to it. Mute systems aren't probably as wired up as like a rat. I've looked up the history of this because all the headlines are it's a medieval disease. Yeah. I wondered so what what happened in the middle ages the first description of the disease appears in fourteen eighty nine during the Spanish siege of Bosnia. And went fighting the Boers during the war of Granada, fourteen eighty nine. These accounts include descriptions of fever, red spots over arms back and chest attention deficit progressing to delirium gangrenous sores and the smell of rotting flesh during the siege. I get this Spaniards lost three thousand men in the war, but they lost seventeen thousand typhus seventeen thousand. There was no there was no obviously any sanitary system, and they'll probably wasn't any treatments. There was no treatments. And what happens when you're war? You're you're living outdoors where you live in like always people, right? You're living in tents is garbage foods riding. You got all kinds of weird. You know, bugs in the fields of the forest wherever you're fighting, and they bite you and boom. You got the typhus and it was common in English prisons. It occurred when prisoners were crowded together in dark filthy rooms where lice spread easily. Oh, that's another thing. Why spreads this too? And if you had to if you had if you were stuck in prison for a lengthy period of time, it was the equivalent of a death sentence. And this went on for hundreds of years, especially during the sixteenth and ninety two from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century, the English civil war. The thirty years war the Napoleonic wars. And by the antifascist bay killed more than ten percent of the total German population in the sixteen hundreds the disease in general counted for accounted for ninety percent of Europe's casualties. Ninety percent of the people who died. Yeah. During the police retreat from Moscow eighteen twelve more French soldiers died of typhus than were killed by the Russians. There was a major epidemic in Ireland between eighteen sixteen and eighteen nineteen hundred thousand people died came back in the eighteen thirties and the eighteen forties. US typhoid typhus epidemic broke out in Philly in eighteen thirty seven killed Franklin Pierce, his son. He was president epidemics Baltimore. Memphis, Washington up to eighteen seventy three. And then in the twentieth century they had delousing stations for troops during World War One. But one hundred and fifty thousand troops died in Yugoslavia alone from typhus hundred and fifty thousand. The word comes from the Greek typhus, meaning hazy describing the state of mind of those. And we learned yesterday that lives Greenwood she's mostly recovered. She still has vertigo. Yeah. She does not really drive and she has not returned to work because of the complications with that. Now, the other thing that came out of this was they weren't believing her either she had to go get a she made. She actually did a little research herself. And ended up getting this specific test for typhus that it was confirmed because you know, what they don't wanna hear this down in LA city government because you know, it's one thing for the homeless to get typhus. But if some of the people that work or live in the area getting typhus, it's going to be a huge nightmare. You can't have people living like this in public. You cannot tolerate this. I mean every single every single notation here about where this happened came from people living in filthy conditions. The last huge outbreak in Europe World War Two, and it was the German POW camps the ghettos in the Nazi concentration camps because of an hygienic conditions. That's what you that's what you have here. It's. It's treated with antibiotics, but if you have a compromised immune system is actually two different types of typhus epidemic. Typhus is the bad one where somebody's older, and again has a bad immune system. It can take their lives. So, you know, we're dealing again with the city run by a mayor who has never paid much attention to the homeless problem except for his dopey gift, baskets and his idea to crowd neighborhoods with his encampments. Yeah. That's it. This is why. And this is why you can't have one of these encampments in your neighborhood, one of the Garcetti encampments. Right. Yeah. Shelters like they're fighting in Venice because the shelters attract more vagrants they'll set up a camp in front of the shelter next to the shelter because the shelter. People are going to be outdoors all day, right? And they're gonna track more friends, and then pretty soon the friends will be setting up camps in your neighborhood, everybody who's been screaming my neighborhood, you you have to be a super Nimby on this stuff is next thing. You know, it's Titus. And you don't know you you, can you could go into Starbucks, and there's a typhus guy standing next year and a flea jumps off from him to you bite. You next thing. You know, you bring it home. The fleas jump on the kids. And everybody's dead. So we're following up on this. We already tried to get the LA city attorney on because that would be her boss was mean, what's boss and might fear. Apparently, they're turning down the request no comment from everybody. Nobody wants to talk. So they're they're willing to have people living in filth and disease outside their offices at city hall, and if the fleas happened to take out one of their own employees. They don't care. This is the level of sociopathic behavior. We got more coming up, John and Ken KFI chess. When a thousand dollars.

Go ahead. Yes. So I think that Hello. Can you hear me? Gotcha. Yes. All right. Well, I actually think the solution to getting everybody vaccinated is to speak to this generation. The language languages so respond to you know, we you just just a little bit of branding. Call coldies vaccines, organic maybe some CD. To make them free. Grammar? Dirty word. Vaccine. You could charge ten times as much and you've got to win behind like Emily Radic ski. Like the fire island fiasco, right? Like, get the hunt. Is getting vaccinated. Vaccinations. He's Alexsandr something. This is what I was talking about Alex earlier when are saying that persuasion, necessarily change people's attitudes. One of the ways. Holding it out you just Tom Brady and Giselle like see look at us. Today to one Tom reaching back at throwing a syringe at me. Given you're a good picture of. What would you call these these things? Oh, that's. The Emlyn, but I think maybe life life. You need the word cannabis or happen there or or we'd right weed whacker. Right. All right. Great great idea. But but to Alex's point, obviously with his tongue in cheek. But that's the point if you change people's attitude about the world as pupils attitude about you, don't want graphs and numbers and facts. Know, you change their understanding with the fact, they're not going to change our behavior. Correct. You Brian change their actors, and I I've known this forever. It's why of created television around this where I've involved getting because I know when I just sit and talk about people go, I hear you learn don't change their behavior.

"WCBS. He's holding the line for America. Buck Sexton is back. I'm starting to worry that some of the largest American cities are going to start to really feel the full brunt of the left-wing stupidity. That has been inflicted on them. You gotta you gotta keep in mind. You know, it's hard to mess up. Some of these cities you've had such a huge decrease in crime nationwide. There are few cities that are outliers here, but you've had this massive drop in crime rates in places, like New York and and across the country. Chicago Baltimore, some outliers to be sure, but overall violence crimes way down from what it was thirty thirty or so years ago or even twenty years ago, and I just am starting to see these stories at to me, look like the Canaries, Nicole mine of general urban decay. I mean, it's tough to be in terms of a warning signs that a city is not being well run. It's it's tough to see something like this and nothing. Oh, gosh. This is only gonna get worse a typhus epidemic in Los Angeles. Okay. Typhus is an infectious disease. That is now. Making its way through particularly the homeless population. But it's a disease that gives you incredibly high fever terrible pain headaches. And it's really really rough. If you catch it now, they are able to treat this. But it's one of these diseases that similar to the bubonic plague or the black death back in the day. It travels on the fleas that live on rats. Well, you might say why would we have in Los Angeles, a typhus outbreak, which is Z's that's really generally associated with extreme deprivation, and poverty, and and trash, and you know, how I feel about trash, you know, everything you need to know about a society's wealth, and and its level of order, and obviously it's cleanliness based upon how it deals with trash situation is trash sewage the very basics of of civil society in a modern country. These days. But they're having this outbreak of typhus in Los Angeles. It's from the fleas on the rats the rats make your way around the human population. Because of these tent cities, you have you. And by the way. One hundred and twenty four cases last year in LA county. But that's one hundred twenty four cases, they found you probably have a few times that in cases that they haven't found yet or in cases that were misdiagnosed or people just you know, didn't necessarily get it dealt with the way they should have. But the mayor is now putting millions of dollars together just to clean up the streets because the rats live on the trash in the streets. People live in the streets in large numbers in these tent cities in LA now, you know, the way that LA deals with its homeless crisis is obviously not sufficient and the way that it's cleaning up the trash on its streets is not sufficient they call an area of downtown LA now the typhus zone. This is the second biggest city in the country. Those you were like, you know, it doesn't it doesn't affect me. You're starting to see diseases popping back up that had been eradicated. You're seeing diseases at the southern border coming in with people who have Syria. Health needs have no vaccination history whatsoever. And then you're seeing measles outbreak occurring. People are moving away from vaccination even of diseases that have a very very high cure rate because or prevention rate because of vaccination, you know, this is this is sketchy stuff, and I can talk to you about what I think's going on in New York to after having been there for the weekend. And just Lino takes a while to see how liberal policy is destructive. And how it is eventually always doomed to run the same cycle of failure. But I think that we're just beginning to really see it happening in places like LA San Francisco where they have the poop patrol to pick up human feces on the streets. You know this. This is where we need somebody to come in. Who's who's really about law and order and cleanliness is a part of that..

How much worse is being actual member of the Ku Klux Klan, which Democrats or the founders of the clan. The Democrats were the clan. The Democrats marched in Washington in the nineteen thirties in Klan outfits, the democratic member of the clan. Robert Byrd was picked by the Democrats to run the Senate at the same time that Ralph Northam was only a medical student twenty five years old Robert KKK bird was in his sixties. How's it possible? The media doesn't make that connection to the democrat party. And is anyone made a study to save for a black folk the worst place for you to live isn't a black congressional district by every objective measurement? If you had the money, would you send your kids Chicago? Oh, public schools. My producer dangling and says, yes, I would do that. I don't think anybody else would. I know how lousy the Cincinnati public schools are. I assume the New York public schools are terrible. But that's all Democrats. No one does that work the highest crime areas in our country controlled by Democrats, the highest taxes are controlled by Democrats. So this the media make any of these connections to the failure of so many been adopted state of Florida wonderful. So he's caught into the swamp. It's impossible for me to conclude that at any point in the next week or two that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will put on the president's desk. A Bill that he can sign and be ready to stand behind him in the rose garden and tell the American people Democrats and Republicans have worked together to solve the immigration problem that will never ever happen impossible. And the media will point that out to you. Will not happen. What they want is for the president to use an executive order declaring a national emergency. They've already got the federal judge picked out in San Francisco doing join it, and it will take one to two years to get up to the Supremes by then the election will be ongoing. They're gonna think they're gonna let the democratic president. He will then resend the executive order legal immigrants keep flooding over the border with rubella and aids and polio and hepatitis and tuberculosis and malaria, syphilis and gonorrhea pirate diarrhea and a bunch of others. That that's what's happening in the sanctuary cities. A headline in the Los Angeles Times today LA is stealing with the deadly flea-born. Typhus outbreak typhus comes from fleas that acupuncture, the packs of mice and rats the size of cats and Los Angeles half the homeless population. And Los Angeles are illegal aliens who were not screened at all for these diseases. They're bringing these into the country getting American sick and killing Americans in that a big story. How many stories have you seen like that on CNN? The answer is zero doesn't fit all the news that fits they print that doesn't fit. How many national stories have been on governor north? I'm talking about killing babies after birth factor matter is there was a quick thirty second story on CBS. And that's it because the national media are pro-abortionist that they think abortion is a sacrament got no problem with it. You don't see those stories continuing.

"The first line is the city of Los Angeles is suffering. From outbreak of of middle ages in pioneer days diseases like typhus, typically found in homeless populations that are more than fifty percent of illegal aliens. And so there's numerous diseases every American should he what you're saying about these diseases cause in Connecticut. The first few cases of measles outbreak last week, and a sanctuary city into haven and all across the country on Oregon dozens and dozens of new measles cases. It's because all these people it's children coming across the border illegally. They're not back Sonate it and all the American children that aren't vaccinated or catching that you can catch me useful. If you're in a room two hours after someone's been in their coughing, and we're going to have a major epidemic in America measles. It's already started. It's terrific. What is in the media cover this show? I don't know why the meeting well, it's because they just want to keep power. It's all about keeping power. If a thousands of Americans ties, a measles, that's collateral damage and the thing about it. I wanted to talk about quickly President Trump's address Tuesday night. The caravan astuter arrive Tuesday the same day as address and INTERPOL. I don't know if you're aware of this this evening info intercepted with the Mexican government people within that care one by INTERPOL. Heavy duty people heavy duty criminals, I came across the seasoning. By the way, that's not covered by the mainstream media because it doesn't fit. They don't cover that start. How many children in Central America are prepared to become grade school children in America with the proper inoculations? I would say none zero. The reason we go through all these inaugurations in vaccinations with legal Everett emigrants is to make sure they don't bring into our country mumps and HIV and polio and hepatitis malaria, tuberculosis and typhus because they're communicable fatal contagious diseases. But none of these other millions of illegal immigrants are ever checked go into the major cities. That's why there's outbreaks. But that's not that this story in the LA times today. Joe did not mention one time illegal aliens causing the typhus epidemic because it because they don't do that in Los Angeles. It's a sanctuary city and a sanctuary state. And so who who's checking these millions of illegals for these communicable diseases. The answer is nobody now. How's that possible? The whole the whole right there Bill, and you've harped on this over and over again, the democrat party is no longer for the American people. They're all about getting all these people in the country illegally because it will cement their power structure for decades to come and America, as we know it will be over President Trump. It was divine intervention. From the idea to run for president. And he's trying to stop it the Bill. This is our last chance this star last chance President Trump can do to stop it.

"Months ago. This is a breeding ground. Typhus that is unacceptable to me. And as mayor I'm gonna make sure that that is changed after our story. Aired in October the city did Holloway the trash on Sarah's avenue and launch more frequent cleanings of streets in skid row the area now known as the typhus zone. But four months later the garbage is once again piling up on Cirrus and all over L A. This is the city of Los Angeles. A Stella Lopez represents businesses in part of downtown LA, and is worried that the typhus epidemic is only getting worse. You can't solve this until you hit the cause of it in the cause of it is that you still have these mountains of trash and the latest numbers from the state health department show, a record number of typhus cases in LA county in two thousand eighteen at least a hundred and twenty four people and more than eighty percent of those cases occurred outside downtown LA. Do you think the city is doing enough to stop the outbreak? Deputy city attorney Liz Greenwood thinks the city should fumigate full city buildings in the downtown area for fleas, including city hall east where she works and city hall. This city has already fumigated parts of nearby LAPD headquarters that have been plagued with fleas, and it shut down and fumigated. LAPD central division where several cops were bitten by fleas. According to this veteran officer are cops afraid of getting typhus, of course. Or course, it's not just homeless, folks. But the city told Greenwood it doesn't have the resources to fumigate city hall east where she says hundreds of city employees who work there and thousands of citizens who visit are at risk of getting typhus. I am concerned about going back to work and getting this again because I thought I was going to die. We asked mayor Garcetti's office why they haven't requested that city hall buildings. Be fumigated. For the fleas that can carry typhus the mayor's office didn't answer our specific question. But simply sent us a statement saying since last fall there's been a comprehensive effort to improve cleanliness and protect public health in the Civic Center Joe from NBC four investigative team on typhus. There's so much insanity in that report. They don't have the resources to fumigate party city hall for typhus and flees didn't have the resources that's tax money. You don't you don't have tax money to fumigate the the government offices. Thank they didn't tax money to put up signs tell the vagrants not to set up camp in the fire zones. Yeah. The no trespassing signs. Oh, what do you mean you so so if I if I've got business at city hall part of deals after take the risk of getting typhus? How could they not have money to fumigate the place? Oh why? Because all the money goes to employee pensions. Is that the problem of? It's so crazy. And did you notice Garcetti was challenged on the garbage on that street? Oh, yeah. We're gonna take care of it. And they do it for a little while. And then they stop the garbage pile later. It's back up, right? And one of one of their own employees city. Prosecutors now got typhus. Oh, it's hard. I'm looking typhus online here. Yeah. I was doing the same thing there. There's there's no vaccine for it. No. You get a high fever headache, nausea vomiting. Good. Get a rash of the chest and the abdomen. Yeah. Yeah. The after five to nine days. The rash starts on your trunk. Oh, it could cover the entire body except the palms of the hands on the bottoms of the feet. Yeah. So you'll get this this typhus rash all over the place. And at any antibiotics typhus, it's the only you can treat it because there's a bacteria without treatment death may occur in ten to sixty percent of patients. Patients over age sixty have the highest risk of death. Oh. I mean, unless you unless you get the drug it's doxycycline antibiotic my God, I and the thing is it says here that you usually you only get it in places where. There's a lot of. There's a lot of poverty. It was a mediaeval only a few as. It's just only few areas exists today. Burundi Rwanda Ethiopia ALgeria and a few areas in south and Central America. You don't have this in the modern world. No. This is from the middle ages. It's they I discovered it in fourteen eighty nine. Eighty nine delayed. Undiagnosed untreated typhus does have a poor prognosis. It depends on which one you get. There's two types of typhus endemic typhus epidemic typhus. But anyway. Apparently epidemic. Typhus has a death. Ray that ranges from ten to sixty percent of infected patients, and if you're over sixty and not in good. You're not going to know you have it because you've never heard of it. So you'll have a bunch of symptoms and you'll think it's the flu. Or some kind of infection because you need that specific drug the doctor how many doctors have treated typhus, it may take weeks before anybody figures out what you have to remember. It's it's it's fleas lice. Typhus of what the rats. It's the fleas on the rats vagrant stuff because the vagrants living garbage. They have a lot of food the rats come for the food, and they and the rats. Enjoy the garbage. Then then the fleas jump on the vagrants. And now the vagrants, you know in the Starbucks. So this poor lady who works for the city. Maybe you know, she went into a Starbucks, and there was one of those guys all sprawled out and the flea jumped on her. Enormous rats with tales as long as their bodies. That's creepy. That's just. Steady steady epidemic. Typhus occurs. Outbreaks were poor sanitary, conditions and crowding or present. Yeah. It's the Garcetti's. It's the vagrant encampments all over the place. Nice. There you go. But, but that's I mean, that's his office city halls where he works in. No, you can't even clean where he works. He doesn't even care about the people work for him. They don't have any money. I just don't understand what's going on. Are more coming up. John and Ken KFI..

"His way to LAX the truth. He said I'm shocked in personally offended by these piles of garbage that you're showing me pictures of they did think you are the mayor of L A and your office in downtown. Don't you drive by this stuff the way the rest of us do? So he said I'm going to do what it takes to stop this typhus epidemic. We're going to do a better job of cleaning up the trash not off. Here's what they do with types of what types of subatomic does exist. So that's a good. Good job with that you pretended. It wasn't happening. Good job. And then with the trash they cleaned up. One alley right? That's been cleaned up. That one alley which by the way, we went back there this week. We went back this morning, and it's almost as bad as and I do mean garbage five feet high ever what the mayor did is. He said we're gonna pour extra money into cleaning up the trash and the streets, and what they did is they focused just on an area of skid row to say call the typhus zone, which they said, this is the worst area. But the fact is only one part of one St. is the typhus zone like, right? Closely at the numbers of typhus cases in LA county for two thousand eighteen more than eighty percent happened outside of downtown LA, a major major outlets in Pasadena. To the rest of the city of LA and the Kelly to clean up all this. I will tell you might wanna get Katherine bargain on the line because she is taking this very seriously in the Pasadena area because she took one look at I got her on the horn. And she was like, oh my God. And she has been one of her major priorities since your original report. Because as I said, you started shifting the public might this idea that it's housing only is anathema. It's just not the issue. We have a mental health issue. We have public health issues given fictious disease issues, and they are the issues that you must contend with the housing is going to have any and drew. There's one other issue with this typhus epidemic that isn't talked about a lot. So I have been trying to talk about it. A lot of the piles of garbage especially in the downtown area are not related to homeless encampments. They are from businesses that don't wanna pay garbage collection fees. So they go in the middle of the night. And they jumped garbage on the streets in alleys in downtown. This is a problem. That's well now. Joel I think that I think that needs to be a separate story because it is a bigger story than just trash if you look on the sides of our freeways on the sides of our roads, you'll see lumber you'll see debris from construction sites. You'll see each couches and mattresses because people don't wanna pay for the dump fee. Exact. So how about the the city goes, hey, once a week, no fee for the dump everybody. Bring it to the up on Sunday, no fee that day. Thank you. And this would all eighty percent of it. Well, let's be honest. There are a lot of people that don't even know you need to call special collection. When you put out a mattress or account sides of our freeways are an embarrassment because of our streets. This is of course, centralizers with the trash and again, the homeless problem does not include a problem with hunger. There have tons of food. That's what's all piled up in these alleys. Yeah. Throw styrofoam guess every time you give them food. They throw it most of it out and the rats get most. So you can eat at Taco Bell for more calories than I did in a day for a dollar now. So people inside the freeway are not hungry. They pulled as plenty of food to be had. But the problem is is being disposed of as we give it to people in our out of compassionate sort of thinking, we're doing something, and it ends up in the streets. So you're just starting to touch on the complexities of this issue. It's not complex. It's not complex. It's simple and clear, and until they start dealing with the needs of these people, which are medical and psychiatric. This is going to go on because it's not our fault that they're. Conditions. Create these symptomology it's the in the conditions. So anyway, it's finally it's moving a little bit. Joe? It's finally there are we have John Morlock down Orange County. We've got Catherine bargain, they're starting to make talk about the things that will actually change this. So it's going to take some time. We will have a major summer outbreak of infectious disease you and I will be there. Talking about saying I saw told yourself and everybody else control the fleas control the rats. You just have to write would you say? Yep. Yep. You're right. If you want, you know, the last word is I think in you know, better than I do. But I think there's a lot of cases of typhus we city and county that are not being diagnosed. Yup. Some people mistake fees for just terrible sue lake Sam symptoms. When in fact is typhus and impact the city officials that I interviewed in my piece tonight. Who's diagnosed with type is said, I just thought I had a horrible cases of flu Iraq. Away. And it got so bad that she finally went and had her blood test. I bet there are three times more cases than for everybody. If you got bad, headache and painful burning palms and soles of your feet.

"And Jason Alexander brought to you by the two thousand nineteen Subaru outback perhaps the most adventurous outback yet speaking adventure. Let's bring Joel Grover investigative reporter for NBC four, Joel. Thank you. Thank you for having me on again. Thank you. Thank you for all this work on the homeless thing you I think you really were the one that got the public discourse moving in the right direction. The public mind you move. You had the foresight to foresee things like typhus epidemic. Right. I knew it was going to happen. And I it's going to be back again this summer. I am stunned that in the face of human injury people being seriously rendered ill by an infectious disease are public officials. Look notice it I don't know about what are you talking about? I Joel I'd never seen typhus west of the five and certainly not west of the four oh five freeway. There was a major outbreak in Long Beach. That was what caught my attention last year. Like, wow, it's usually so we have now a major outbreak near the ocean. That was incredible this summer. It's going everywhere. It's going be this summer, and there's in Wyoming at or if you've been watching this. But or Scindia pestis is making. Its way across the country on rats, and or senior pestis you might have read about at some point in your readings of history. It's also called bubonic plague. Right. It's heading our way. And how they say it is not is is frankly criminal plague was like in our history books with us now, right? And there's really not been a lot shed by city and county officials in LA the last few months about this typhus epidemic. Even the continues to get worse continues to spread no one's saying a lot. They did last October. I think only when questioned by reporters like me, but they haven't said a lot lately, and it seems like not enough is being done to stop this epidemic. And the story we're doing tonight on channel four at eleven. We'll show how the ethnic is not just hitting the homeless population. Which is really what officials were talking months ago. It is now hitting workers across LA, including a we interview a veteran city official who's been infected with typhus and believes that she got it in the city hall complex from fleas hitching rides on rats. Eat all that garbage ran downtown. The I love it Joel if you could find some numbers about the rat infestation in the greater Los Angeles area because our our yard was oh, I mean like overrun with them. And we had a company come in and took a six months to get it under control and the professionals that came out said, oh, yeah. We never seen anything like this. It's unbelievable. It's of course, all coming growing expanding out from these gigantic trash depots. What is the mayor doing about that? Well, I questioned the mayor the beginning of October. And I showed him video and pictures we had taken mountains, and I do mean mountains of trash mainly in the downtown area. And he said, this is disgusting. I'm quote, personally offended. I'm gonna do something. I'm going to remove this. Well, one particular street that I discussed with the mayor in October the city did go in right after our interview and cleared it away, but we've been going back and now the trash is piling up armies of rats with. Fleas and nothing's being done about it again after I talked to mayor Tober when he said, we're going to do something about this typist problem. They have done more frequent cleaning of streets and cleared away garbage. But really only in the skid row area of downtown. Let me tell you something rats don't stop at the border of skid row feast in garbage they're all through not just downtown. But as you said the city of LA valley everywhere, and that's linked to this typhus epidemic. Well, I like I said when the word play starts getting bantered around. He starts seeing those cases I there's going to be some sort of horrible panic, and then people are gonna react impulsively rather than systematically, which is what they should be doing. What what do they think? What is it? They think that this isn't going to happen. I mean, they they're pretending. They're literally saying I saw rhetoric blessed summer that oats. Not that bad. Literally saying, oh, this is nothing unusual. Oh, don't don't give me that. I know it's unusual because I've practiced here for thirty years. Never scrape. I've never seen anything like this. I was outraged when they said that never seen anything like it. There are people who have wondered aloud or public officials not a lot of money into stopping the sympathetic because it's sheetings the homeless population. Hopeless though. Stories about anyone that works in downtown LA and beyond and beyond with a dog. Who'd get anyone Dr is is at risk right now because the rats get into your yard, the fleas get onto your dog, the fleas leave debris that they are cat, essentially, essentially defecate on the animal, you get on your hand gets in you. And that's it also plea bites and then again or pass this is going to be the great equalizer with when that when that one comes right? It's coming. It's it has to that's the nature. It's the only reason we have people's congregated in things, we call cities is that we dealt with sanitation and rats. What do these video city officials think that civilization somehow has some new set of rules attached to it, and we can live alongside rodents and flees? Hey, Joel before when you kind of cornered, a mayor Garcetti announced him about like, oh, you know, there's trash downtown and skid row that's piled high like ten feet tall. Why is that because we're having a rat problem? He's like, oh, we're not collecting the trash down there have they besides clean. It that one time are they collecting the trash on a regular basis.

Of course, was arrested that was Saturday that it was stopping announced it today. We'll remember a couple months ago. We did a story on the typhus epidemic sweeping downtown LA NBC four investigative watchdog Joel Grover confronted mayor Garcetti in the street to ask him. But he was doing about eighty came on with us to talk about it. Well, Joel says it's gotten a lot worse. Joe Grover joins us talk more about the the big exclusive. We're gonna see tonight on channel four at eleven o'clock. Joel my assumption is. As the typhus is wiped out, and we're all clean and ready to go, right? Thank you. Guys up the mute button. No, that's fine. Nobody you knew and my mom. I know I like to put myself. Me too. First of all, thank you for calling me, a watchdog. Title. Second of all gear. You're wrong is not wiped out. In fact, the epidemic continues to get worse. Even though public health officials aren't really talking about it. The numbers continue to grow. We got the final numbers for two thousand eighteen a record number of typhus cases in LA county. And there's no scientific epidemic is going away. Anytime soon, you mentioned that someone very close to city hall has come down with typhus. Can you explain that angle of the story? A veteran city official who works in the city hall complex has now been diagnosed typhus when I started covering step. Know Tober public health officials city officials were saying this is mostly the homeless population that is being affected. Typhus is carried by rats. Well, it's Terry by fleas that are on ramp. There is a horrible rat problem as we know throughout the whole city of LA throughout the county, especially in downtown LA were there are so many piles of garbage. So there has been a fear for months that workers white collar workers included all people will be at risk of this disease. And now we're seeing proof of that typically rats what what is the rat interaction need to be to get well rats generally are attracted to piles of garbage. And this is a breeding ground for rats and fleas hitch a ride on unwrapped. So when the rats go from the garbage where there's the typist bacteria into city hall or other downtown buildings the fleas get off the rat. Fleas bite people I've interviewed a number of LAPD cops. Who has been bitten and are worried about typhus? So the rats bring the fleas into the buildings in all around the city. I remember when you confront when we talked to you last time you had confronted mayor Garcetti about it. And he said he was going to he was gonna take care of it. Now what happened? What did he do that? Well, the city and the mayor did take care of it. But really they're focusing on a very small area after I confronted the mayor in October. He said these piles of garbage, which you're telling me about all over downtown are disgusting. He said, I'm personally offended, and I'm gonna do something about it. So the mayor ordered the city to clean up streets and clearly the garbage much more frequently than they had been doing. However, they're only doing that really in the skid row area the area, they call the toughest stone. But some of the cases that are being diagnosed, including this city official are outside of that area of skid row. Because rats don't stop at the border skid row. They keep going downtown throughout the city. So the city's responses to epidemic has really been in just a small area. The problem is much bigger than that eighty percent of the cases counting last year have been outside of downtown LA. So there is a problem with homelessness in garbage piles up, and it's a breeding ground for typist, and it is not confined to skid row or downtown. Let me ask you also. And this is a little off topic. But I think it plays into the headlines from this week. Mayor Garcetti has said he's not running for president. This is one of those stories this the connection to typhus the homelessness problem in Los Angeles. Do you think these were considerations that he made to decide not to run for president? You know, it's a very good question to ask. I'm not in the mayor's inner circle. So I really don't know the answer. I don't know. Whether it was Kamala Harris or the homeless issue that is festering and really in many people's eyes is getting worse. But you got to believe that maybe these issues there was a concern. These issues would crop up in a national race. All right. Joe Grover listened to the report watch the report tonight NBC four Laurie. We say Hello at eleven o'clock. Yes. Having me on and put us back on mute. If you don't mind. Thanks, joe. We appreciate it. All right. We come back. I don't like to hear typhus and festering together. Well, listen, I think if this continues to spread it would be one thing if it was if it was spread person to person, you know, if it was a contagious person to person thing if that's the way it was transferred. But because transferred by fleas that are on rats that makes it worse to me because there has been nothing done to curb. This rap problem in the garbage problem that continues to plague downtown LA typhus causes inflamed. Blood vessels, which can cause a dramatic drop in blood pressure and internal bleeding kidney failure, swelling the liver. The spleen. It's all bad. High school with kidney typhus. No. That was the tropical storm typhus that had an extra z in it tie risks. That's that's who I I went to high school tyrus, girl or boy or tire. It was he identified then as a boy, I have no idea what's going on with high right now. Gary and Shannon. We'll continue this fake. Walgreens, pharmacist that was handing out thousands of sorry.
