There have Been nearly 96,900 cases statewide, which is up 709 from yesterday's report. Well. Today was the deadline for all states to submit their plans for distributing Covad 19 vaccines. We spoke with acting assistant secretary for the State Department of Health Michele Roberts about when the public can see and learn about the vaccine plan next week. What we plan on doing is post that plan publicly online so everybody can see it and see the information that is in there and then have an opportunity to get review and feedback in the land. The Centers for Disease Control is careful to remind us that right Now there is not unauthorized or approved vaccine to prevent Cove in 19, but the CDC says there is a possibility of one or more vaccines that may be available by the end of this year.

Making sure American Indian COVID-19 cases are counted, and feeding a hungry heart

"The Corona virus pandemic underscores an issue Abigail Hawk the chief research officer of the Seattle Indian health. Board has been fighting her entire career, the exclusion of native people in public health data. We know that the data that's being collected across the United States isn't collecting race and ethnicity correctly however, even with that incredible lack of data, the data that we do have shows an incredible disparity. Growing up in rural Alaska. Echo Hawk was surrounded by examples of how a native community diligently cared for one. Another I was raised amongst incredible people who were the very first public health practitioners. I ever saw if somebody needed fed, they fed them. If somebody needed a ride to a doctor, a five hour trip tankards, Alaska, they drove them. All of my scientific background comes from that space of understanding what it means to serve the community and also the. As an indigenous person, I come from thousands of years of incredible indigenous scientists but after being stereotyped mistreated while seeking prenatal care in Seattle. Washington she knew how she can make an impact in her community. I had a medical assistant question me on how much I had been drinking. She pulled up my sleeves and then I realized she was checking my arm to see had track marks. It was really traumatizing to me is a a young person. I was only nineteen years old and as a result of that experience I didn't get prenatal care until I was in my second trimester, I became a grassroots advocate to ensure that native women were properly treated because we have some of the highest. Rates of infant mortality and maternal mortality within this country and as I went through my college years that turned into what I did my thesis on, she went on to study health policy at the University of Washington, but it wasn't easy navigating between Western, and indigenous knowledge systems. It was hard to balance who I was native person versus what the university is expected me to be and what Western science wanted almost insisted I had to be it became another struggle to be seen as relevant. As smart and as knowledgeable, the other people in the room, and in fact, in the first year of my career I would say that I did not actively practice indigenous science. We come from thousands of years of data gatherers in my communities. We know how to ensure that our corn grows for example, in a time where there is complete droughts I was called out by one of my elders in the fact that I no longer was representing or being an indigenous person it reminded me of. Who I was, and that I would not make any difference in my community. If I didn't go back to the knowledge that I knew was right that I knew was ethical. I was able to incorporate that and not only see how western science has a lot of basis in indigenous knowledge systems. But I also feel that western science needs to quit coming to indigenous people because they think we have all of the problems they need to come to us because we have all of the answers. Today Echo Hawk as the director of the urban Indian Health Institute, a Seattle based organization seeking to decolonize data by putting native people's priorities at the forefront of data collection by being intimately involved in the collection of information native people can shape the narratives told about their communities data and a Western context has always been used against native people. It has been used to show how bad off we are how higher suicide rates are higher diabetes is how we don't achieve the same educational standards Western folks that deficit narrative continues to build support stereotypes of those communities as being less than not as smart of they're responsible for. Their own health disparities all of those things as a result of that, many of our communities have protected themselves and have not participated actively data-gathering efforts across the United States and across the world and that was absolutely the right thing for them to do was to protect themselves. Tribal communities have a right to ensure that data gathered about them is used for their benefit and that they maintain ownership in control over that controlling the data also means making sure that indigenous people are counted in federal and state data sets in the United States. A practice not always followed despite a treaty agreement between tribal nations and the United States. Government. The US census didn't proactively count American Indians until eighteen sixty and this earth of data was used as settle on native peoples land. One of the things that we actively are fighting against is that a small population people don't gather the data about US correctly or they don't gather it at all. So very often albeit presentation, it will say a little asterix that we were American Indians Alaska natives were statistically insignificant to me. That is one of two things either you did not actively try or didn't know how to connect with the community to gather the data you needed to, and the other is, is that when? You eliminate us in the data. You are actively participating in the ongoing genocide of American Indians and Alaska natives, and that seems really strong to say, and yes, it is and I believe it one hundred percent. So I ask people to question these practices that they're doing and recognize that. Yes, I know they're not inherently individually racist but they're participating in a system that has been meant to eliminate my people. These data collection issues remain a major problem in the covid nineteen pandemic initially Echo Hawk was unable to access the CDC breakdown of race ethnicity data. Once she saw the data, she was unimpressed with its quality and breadth. What we found in twenty three states is that native people were three point five times more likely to be infected with covert than Non Hispanic whites. Why did we only do twenty three states in the country? because. The rest of the state simply hadn't gathered enough data for us to be able to analyze what was happening within their states. So only twenty three states had gathered seventy percent of their race ethnicity data policymakers are trying to make data driven decisions. How can they make data driven decisions with bad data? Gathering this data, the resources that we need are not being. In the right way because we don't know how to allocate them. Correctly, Echo Hawk has provided training to universities and the State Department about how to correctly collect race and ethnicity data as well as how to restructure their database systems to better serve indigenous people in all realms of public health. We know that there's about a twenty increase in domestic violence right now as a result of Covid and many of folks who could leave their homes for work or school or things like that to get away from their abusers for an amount of time no longer can do that. I'm deeply dedicated towards the safety of victims of sexual violence and domestic violence and other types of intimate partner violence and so. I am actively working with a large county here in Washington state where we are changing their database system. We are also going to assist them in working with the local tribal communities on what it means. Once they collect that data, how that data is shared back to the tribal communities, how it's analyzed and what kind of meaningful change can come from that at the end of the day. The individual story behind the data guides, echo hawks work. We are also listening to the stories of the community, the impact of a family who's lost both parents the impact of a tribe where cove nineteen has just ravishing through their communities causing so much destruction that qualitative data is justice important as the quantitative data. Simply. Because right now, we don't have enough of that quantitative data to get to those decision makers. So they can make those data driven decisions. Every single data point is a mother is grandfather is an uncle is an anti is relative. We have a responsibility to the story and two story teller to the story. We have a responsibility to ensure that it builds the strength of the community. It identifies gaps that we can then go in and work towards filling that it also shows the strength and the resilience season, the answers that are held within our community by hope for my great. Great. Great. Great. Great. Great grandchildren. That they are not facing the same battles that I am facing that we have an opportunity to come together now as allies within the scientific community recognize we have gone wrong and to see our path forward.

Why contact tracing is critical

"Public health officials say the growing White House outbreak underscores why contact tracing is so critical Almost Michelle Esteban is digging into our state is doing in that area and spoke with Colonel Kevin McMahon of the National Guard in charge of contact tracing in our state. I talked to the Department of Health when it comes to that contact tracing They say that they have work to do. They're not where they want to be. And it is a massive mission. You have to remember. We've got over 89,000 cases since the pandemic began, and we really should talk about what is contact tracing. Since the onset of the pandemic. Our state Department of Health has led an effort to contact every person has positive in our state with a goal to do that, for 90% of the cases within 24 hours of test results. We're not their recent example. Just last month of department health reach 49% of those cases within 24 hours, and then two weeks later up to 65%. They do expect improvement, and that really is just a fraction of the tracing that's done in our state. The bulk of all the contact tracing is actually done by local health departments. And right now the state still working on how to track that data. From all of the county health department. Contact Tracing can happen when someone test positive that triggers the process. State team members the National Guard, They'll call you the request contact information for all your close contacts. That is someone who was within 6 FT. For 15 minutes or more of you to let them know that they may have been exposed and they should get tested. They're encouraged to stay home or watch for symptoms for 14 days. I'll just remind you that this is all voluntary. The information is private Washington National Guard alone says since May, it has made 16,480 calls. That's just a small sample of those contacted. But it is telling, says the commander who is overseeing the state's part of the mission tells me that there's a need and we've got to continue to press hard in this. We've got to continue to mitigate the overall impact to covet. S so that we can ensure that our state and especially its citizens are healthy and are able to return to their lives.

"us state department" Discussed on WRVA

"The program. We've got more problems trying to cross the border. Yeah. And some people walls are immoral. Let's tear down all the walls. According to Robert, Francis beta bozo. And we'll hit that at the bottom of this half hour, we'll have an update, but I want to draw your attention to a column which has blockbuster when you get to the heart and soul of it of John Solomon investigative reporter and executive vice president of the hill because if you were called last week, we had the nine and a half minute press conference if you will, of Robert Mueller and all of a sudden, the mullahs report never delivered. What the left was telling us he was going to deliver now. That's the fourth time now that investigations have come to the same conclusion, and that is no Russia conspiracy. No Russia can. Collusion of any type. No obstruction of Justice, and it was a huge massive letdown expose. But we've been saying it's nothing but fake news conspiracy theories frauds. The news media, that has been sold lazy and fixated on being an extension of all, things extreme radical socialist democrat, you know, literally caught with their hands in the cookie jar running advance and advancing the lies advancing the hoax advancing, the conspiracy theory, anyway, so. Muller gives us nine and a half minute speech and he says, well, we couldn't indict the president because of Justice department policy and the issue of whether a sitting president can or cannot be indicted, leaving a clear implication. Well, we might have mayo. But we can't say but there's a possibility yet when you look at the fact that there's no underlying crime. The president was open in his criticisms of people like rod Rosenstein at times, and he fired Komi Komi deserved it. And he could've at anytime have fired Robert Muller himself under article to legally. He had the legal authority to fire Muller, and there was severe conflicts of interest, the day before Muller became the special counsel, begging Donald Trump of the job as the FBI director, and then he got appointed by rod Rosenstein now is prize. They've had conflicts in the past that the golf club, the president owned, I guess. Still owns but as a private citizen, so he gives us nine and a half minute speech. It's like manna from heaven, heavily waters now have been sent to every liberal news, media mob organization and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it only lasts a couple of hours because there were multiple times multiple witnesses that heard Robert Muller's say, just the opposite. In other words, that was not a consideration for his decision. He was never going to make a decision on obstruction. It is going to present as the law requires what his findings are to the attorney general, is not the old independent counsel statute, this is now the special counsel statute, and then it would be up to the attorney general, to make a determination of any laws were broken. And in very short order the attorney general bar. The deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and the office of legal counsel concluded. No obstruc. Action Muller himself. No collusion. That was done quickly, Muller's, the Muller issue is dead. But he had to make a clarification. And frankly my interpretation of it was that attorney general bar threw him a lifeline by allowing the special counsel's office to team with the attorney general, and put out a statement that no no, no. This is what he really meant clarification because so many because he said the opposite. I got the feeling. He didn't even read the draft. It seemed like it was written by somebody else. Anyway. Now, the next step we're now, discovering, a lot of things in the so-called Muller report are absolutely false. You know, it's literally breaking and his key assertions in this document of his four hundred and forty eight pagers on not accurate at all. You know, the, the report describes Paul manafort's Ukrainian business partner as a shady individual with ties to Russian intelligence. In other words, the Muller report wanted you to believe that the Trump campaign was essentially embed with a Russian spy, John Salman breaks the story, and what do we find out that we knew it was total Bs and manafort's business. Partner was actually a sensitive intelligence source but for the US State Department, and how and why team Muller purposely deceived, the we the people is beyond my imagination. That's probably likely one of the reasons Muller doesn't dare want to go before Nadler's committee and face Jim Jordan, and Mark meadows. In fact, in this case, the guy had visited the US twice in two thousand sixteen to meet with State Department officials he regularly met with the chief political officer inside the US embassy in Kiev and Muller had access to all that information, which means that they this was a premeditated line. And yet, he cast a dark shadow on the individual and it. To present this person as an affair is actor tied to Russia. It wasn't true. And the very same plan, by the way, that was given to the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen Ukrainian peace plan. Well, that was presented to the Obama administration. Well, that context should have been in the mullahs report also because Muller's team knew it. So the another example of outright deception and just the latest in what is a pretty disturbing pattern. I mean, the separately, edited transcript from the former Trump attorney John down during a privilege routine call remember in the case there. The joint defense agreement with general Flynn and Muller conveniently leaves out, John Dowd statement, that his request is for communication was not only for the president before the country, and that he was not asking for any confidential information, which was the exact opposite of what the Muller team portrayed. An. In other words, sculptor Tori evidence was ripped right out of it, which is classic. Andrew weissmann. If you read licensed, the lie, by Sydney Powell, and you can't forget all that, and not come to a conclusion is that they purposely wrote this report, withholding knowledge, altering knowledge, just to make it look as bad as they could John Solomon broke the story is with us now. There's no way they didn't know what they were doing John because this was this was easily found out by them. Well, listen. What I have is actually a section of the mother teams files either actually Robert Muller's file include FBI interviews. The Robert mother team did with State Department officials who in, in worked on a daily basis with this Manafort, partner named Constantine. I have the cables in the emails in which State Department officials on a daily basis relayed valuable intelligence. They came in from Mr Clinton to the embassador at the State Department, at the Ukraine embassy in cab to officials in Washington, among themselves, and I have all the emails that, that Mr. reineck sent to his handlers at the State Department, and he wasn't just dealing with any old person at the State Department. He dealt with the deputy chief of mission, and the two chief political officers for the embassy. So he was such a valued asset that he was handled at the highest levels of State Department in one of the things that are in the documents really clear, the State Department officials told the F B I they made a conscious effort. But never put Mr. Clemens name in any cables for fear that WikiLeaks. We'd get a hold of him and his identity as a secret source of the United States, government would be compromised. So that was all sitting in Muller's files, no doubt about it confirmed by interviews by the markings on the documents, Robert Muller had that side of Constantine, committed life nail down and for reasons that I don't understand, and I have not been able to ask for team to reporting Robert Muller, chose to portray Constantine communiqu as a Russian, synthesis somebody who had connections to the Russian intelligence group and the Russian intelligence services, without telling this entire other story, and I think that it deserves the public. If the goal the mullahs report was to get transparency, the failure to mention this vast body of evidence portrays clinic, and a very different light trusted by the United States government giving valuable, by the way. Doesn't the same thing exists. Now, we know that Carter page was an American asset that he worked for the community. It's not. I mean I asked them straight up and he said, well, it's out there. Yeah, I was working for our side. Yeah. When that was in March, sixteen as recently as March or twenty sixteen just as he was joining the Trump campaign has now been verified by the FBI documents. I obtained and others that Carter page was working to help the FBI bring a case against Russian mobsters. So all of these missing elements, always have a common pattern the common pattern. Is they make the person close to Trump look, dirty or kosher to rush more problematic than the actual evidence. And let me give you one example from the Constantine committee documents that just gives a sense of how misleading by omission. The mullahs report is the mother report does a big makes a big deal out of the fact that Constantine committed in August of twenty sixteen came to New York. The sign. And he's not a Russian spy because he was a Russian spy. We wouldn't have given them a visa. He gets in the country. He drops off a peace plan to try to settle the Russia Ukraine crisis in chromium, and the Mahler says, oh my gosh. This is an example of him doing the Russians bidding, and he was trying to influence Trump and get Trump involved in this matter. There's only one problem with that story. If you go through the FBI documents and the and the cables, and the State Department memos that, Bob, mother possessed and is ins committed, I will ever the peace plan to the Obama administration four months before he gave it to Trump. So he gave it to both parties. And how did the Obama administration, reactive State Department official thanked him saying is very valuable information were noodling it over, if you have that part of the report all of, and you knew that part of Constantine, communiqu you'd go? Well, why am I worried about the contact with Donald Trump? It sounds like he was trying to get everybody aboard in, in solving the Ukraine crisis all of that. So mid, and it's always omitted to the negativity of the Trump campaign, the portrayal of the negative. Of the Trump campaign is always more negative, when there's no mission here. I think the American public have to ask why. Well, I mean, you, you literally, literally looked at hundreds of pages of government documents that we know that Robert Mueller possess since two thousand eighteen and they knew the, the demarcation, they knew the sensitive intelligence source that was this guy. And, you know, they know they're aware that he worked for the State Department and well informed on matters involving Ukrainian Russia, and it was such an incomplete and deceptive portrayal of, of such an important person in, and they use it in this overall narrative. Right. And to me, there's only one conclusion is they wanted it to be interpreted the wrong way, and they purposely wrote it to be interpreted the wrong way. And I honestly think it just shows. And by the way, there's a poll out that confirms this half of Americans now believe that Trump was a wick Vic. Item of a witch hunt. And, and it also confirms my belief that Robert Muller does not wanna testify and I don't think he will testify because I don't think he can sustain the questioning of Jim Jordan. Mark meadows and company. But it'll be I think came star said on your show last night, he would be a travesty for the American public, if mother got away and didn't answer these very seminal questions, I go to the credibility of his investigation, the credibility of his findings and the honesty of the work that he said, and I remember something can said last night. I just star said on your show, it was very important. He said when Bob Muller made that nine point statement, he emphasized that this investigation was built on the integrity of good people who work with him that integrity is now in question that work is now in question. Why wouldn't Bob mother come coming answer the questions that would allow us to ascend can't, well, why hired these people? He can't answered when he knew those no collusion. He can't answer. Why such a bias team? He can't answer questions. Like why did you have time for taxi medallions and Farah violations, but not Hillary dirty Russian dossier. All right. Stay right there.

"Are immoral. Let's tear down all the walls. According to Robert, Francis beta bozo. And we'll hit that at the bottom of this half hour, we'll have an update, but I want to draw your attention to a column which is blockbuster when you get to the heart and soul of it of John Solomon investigative reporter and executive vice president of the hill, because if you're call last week, we had the nine and a half minute press conference if you will, of Robert Muller, and all of a sudden, the Muller report, never delivered what the left was telling us he was going to deliver now. That's the fourth time now that investigations have come to the same conclusion, and that is no Russia conspiracy. No russia. Collusion of any type. No obstruction of Justice, and it was a huge massive letdown expose. But we've been saying it's nothing but fake news conspiracy theories frauds. The news media, that has been so lazy and fixated on being an extension of all, things extreme radical socialists democrat, you know, literally caught with their hands in the cookie jar running advance and advancing the lies advancing the hoax advancing, the conspiracy theory, anyway, so. Smaller gives us nine and a half minute speech and he says, well, we couldn't indict the president because of Justice department policy and the issue of whether a sitting president can or cannot be indicted, leaving a clear implication. Well, we might of. Well, we can't say, but there's a possibility yet when you look at the fact that those no underlying crime. The president was open in his criticisms of people like rod Rosenstein at times, and he fired Komi Komi deserved it, and he could have anytime have fired Robert Muller himself under article to legally. He had the legal authority to fire Muller, and there was severe conflicts of interest, the day before Muller became the special counsel, begging Donald Trump for the job as the FBI director, and then he got appointed by rod Rosenstein. That was this prize. They've had conflicts in the past the Gulf club. The president owned still. Loans, but as a private citizen, so it gives us nine and a half minute speech. It's like manna from heaven, heavily waters. Now been sent to every liberal news media mob organization, Democrats on Capitol Hill, but it only lasts a couple of hours because there were multiple times multiple witnesses that heard Robert Muller say, just the opposite. In other words, that was not a consideration for his decision. He was never gonna make a decision on obstruction. It is going to present as the law requires what his findings are to the attorney general, is not the old independent counsel statute, this is now the special counsel statute, and then it would be up to the attorney general, to make a determination of any laws were broken. And in very short order the attorney general bar, the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and the office of legal counsel concluded no obstruction. Muller himself. No collusion. That was done quickly, Muller's, the Muller issue is dead. But he had to make a clarification. And frankly my interpretation of it was that attorney general bar threw him a lifeline by allowing the special counsel's office to team with the attorney general, and put out a statement that no no, no. This is what he really meant clarification because so many because he said the opposite. I got the feeling. He didn't even read the draft. It seemed like it was written by somebody else. Anyway. Now, the next step win out discovering, a lot of things in the so-called Mullah report are absolutely false. You know, it's literally breaking and his key is search ins in this document of his four hundred and forty eight pagers on that not accurate at all. You know, the, the report describes Paul manafort's Ukrainian business partner as a shady individual with ties to Russian intelligence. In other words, the Muller report wanted you to believe that the Trump campaign was essentially embed with a Russian spy, John Solomon, breaks the story and what do we find out that we knew it was total Bs and manafort's business. Partner was actually a sensitive intelligence source but for the US State Department, and how and why team Muller purposely deceived, the we the people is beyond my imagination. That's probably likely one of the reasons Muller doesn't dare want to go before Nadler's committee and face Jim Jordan, Mark meadows. In fact, in this case, the guy had visited the US twice in twenty sixteen to meet with State Department officials. He regularly met with the chief political officer inside the US embassy in Kiev and Muller had access to all that information, which means that they this was a premeditated line. And yet, he cast a dark shadow on this individual and. Present this person as an affair is actor tied to Russia. It wasn't true. And the very same plan, by the way, that was given to the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen Ukrainian peace plan that was presented to the Obama administration. Well that context should have been in the Muller also because Muller's team knew it. So the another example of outright deception. And just the latest. What is pretty disturbing pattern? I mean, the separately, edited transcript from the former Trump attorney John down during a privilege routine call. Remember in the case that a joint defense agreement with general Flynn and Muller conveniently leaves out, John Dowd statement that his request is for communication was not only for the president before the country, and that he was not asking for any confidential information which was the exact opposite of what the mother team portrayed. And in other words, skull, Potosi evidence was ripped right out of it, which is classic. Andrew weissmann. If you're licensed, the lie by Sydney Powell, and it can't forget all that, and not come to a conclusion is that they purposely wrote this report, withholding knowledge altering knowledge they just to make it look as bad as they could John Solomon broke the stories with us now there's no way. They didn't know what they were doing John because this was this was easily found out by them. Listen, what I have is actually a section of the mother teams files either, actually Robert Muller's file include FBI interviews. The Robert mother team did with State Department officials who in, in worked on a daily basis with this metaphor partner named Constantine clinic, I have the cables in the emails in which State Department officials on a daily basis relay valuable intelligence, they came in from Mr. clinic to the embassador at the State Department, at the Ukraine, embassy in, in Cav to officials in Washington, among themselves, and I have all the emails that, that Mr. clinic sent to his handlers at the State Department and he wasn't just dealing with any old person at the State Department. He dealt with the deputy chief of mission, and the two chief political officers for the embassy. So he was such a valued asset that he was handled at the highest levels of State Department, and one of the things that are in the documents really clear, the State Department officials told the F B I they made a conscious effort. Never put Mr. clinics name in any cables for fear that WikiLeaks, we get a hold of and his identity is a secret source of the United States, government would be compromised. So that was all sitting in Muller's files, no doubt about it confirmed by interviews by the markings on the documents, Robert Muller had that side of Constantine, committed life nail down and for reasons that I don't understand, and I have not been able to ascertain reporting, Robert Muller chose to portray concentrating communiqu as a Russian sympathies, somebody who had connections to the Russian intelligence group and the Russian intelligence services, without telling this entire other story, and I think that it deserves the public if goals Muller report was to get transparency the failure to mention this vast body of evidence portrays clinic, and a very different light trusted, by the United States, government giving valuable doesn't same thing exists. Now we know that. Carter page was an American asset that he worked for the community. It's not. I mean I asked them straight up and he said, well, it's out there. Yeah. I was working for our side when that was in March of sixteen as recently as March twenty sixteen just as he was joining the Trump campaign. It is now been verified by the FBI documents.

He's not a Russian spy because he was a Russian spy, we wouldn't have given them a visa. He gets in the country. He drops off a peace plan to try to settle the Russia Ukraine crisis in Crimea.

But on the other hand this as you mentioned his first trip official trip as secretary of state to Russia. He has to remember his boss might not. But he has to remember that, you know, he's a diplomat effectively, and therefore he has to talk in diplomatic terms to a certain extent. So whilst he will bring up these issues, and I'm sure he will bring up the question twenty sixteen interference. He will bring it up in diplomatic terms.

"This a comment by Mexico's president about needing to deal with the root causes Oscars because most of these migrants on actually from Mexico just passing through from places like Honduras and got Amada. Yes. That's correct. The majority of migrants arriving at the US border actually coming from Central American countries. And in many cases have actually surpassed Mexican nationals arriving crossing the border, particularly the case in Guatemala, which is a nationality. This far far exceeded Mexicans arriving at the border in recent years. Now, the view of the Mexican president is that if you want to the numbers of people leaving countries like Salvador, Honduras, traveling through Mexico to get to the United States, then you need to boost economic development in Central America and create an incentive for them to stay with all the couple of days ago. The US State Department said it wanted to halt aid payments to Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador. That's right. And that's really going to create a problem not just for the Central American countries themselves, which as you mentioned are suffering from poverty and also extreme violence, which without some kind of financial support. There just aren't going to improve and migration isn't going to stop. But it's also going to create intense friction between Mexico and the United States because Mexico's policy in lupus, those policy has always been, you know, we need to support the Central American countries financially to curve migration. And so the Trump administration's moved to cut that financial aid not only goes against what these countries needs.

"Our Twitter handle is at K Q E D forum. We do welcome your involvement and again Philippian here in studio is. Director and chief operating officers. The plush ploughshares fund and also former vice president of the Asia foundation and senior former senior policy advisor at the US State Department. Well, at this point, we're not only talking about really United States relations with Saudi Arabia. What we're talking about? What may be just interested in the factory sampling? We've got an election going on in Israel next week. And we've got the a lot of steak there is real and Saudi Arabia now seem to be pretty much allies against Iran, and that's taking Israel is a nuclear power. So if Saudi Arabia becomes a nuclear power or of this helps at least move Saudi Arabia toward becoming a nuclear power. We're talking about a whole reconfiguration in the Middle East possibly and an arms race as I said before a nuclear arms race. I think that's absolutely right. And that's why what we do with respect to Saudi Arabia at my hope is that we if we decide we want to share nuclear technology. We have what's called the gold standard, which is an agreement that we. Did with the United Arab Emirates where they specifically renounced the ability to reprocess and enrich the stuff that you know, to to make the fuel that's necessary. And you know, if you don't do something like that what you're doing is as you know, the Iran deal, the United States, basically withdrew in reneged on the Iran deal. I think essentially the Iranians for the most part have held Pat because I think they're hoping that Donald Trump loses reelection, and then we can go back to the status quo, ante where the deal is basically in place. So they've been you know, despite their domestic political pressures. They've steps stood firm with this. If in fact, the one two three the that Saudi Arabia has that capability that increases more pressure on Iran for them to basically, you know, not adhere to the Iran nuclear deal, and then you're off to the races. Let's go to our callers with find out. What you our listeners have to say or asking we begin Peter with you. Good morning. You're on the air. Thank you. Thank you for this opportunity and for your. Your guest whose work is so important. I'm just wanting to struggle up publicly here with the the difficulty of looking at the fundamental hypocrisy. I believe in the present established nuclear clubs saying we're right in your wrong to new nuclear power. There may be some possibility of concession or some humility some. You know, some relief of sanctions some measure of goodwill actually as a as a mode of defense. And and shouldn't there possibly be a greater more public dialog involving North Korea? And and the public in a global discussion. How did totally denuclearize the entire world. Question is really about diplomacy, and how diplomacy might work in either of these cases, but more toward North Korea Philippine? Yes. So there's a one of our Graentiz I can international campaign against nuclear weapons has been talking about the notion of completely banning all of these weapons. And so that is a dialogue that is ongoing right now. And in fact, I can receive the Nobel peace prize two thousand seventeen for their work. I mean, there's just a small group of people in Europe, and they've had a huge impact of creating a new norm here, the two main powers United States, and what used to be the Soviet Union now Russia under Putin are moving forward with more new. That's that's that's essentially what you're what. I think your your listener has been talking about is the hypocrisy that's involved in this. I mean as part of the non-proliferation treaty nuclear non-proliferation treaty, the ones who have recognized and said they have nuclear weapons so that they eventually are going to get rid of these things, but we have yet to do. So. And the problem right now is as you as you mentioned, the United States is on par to predict to believe it's something to trillion dollars over the next thirty years to renew our nuclear weapons capabilities. I mean, it's it's really outrageous. And in this time where you know, there's so many more needs for that money..

So what what it needs right now is really stability while it deals with some of these problems. So I think you're likely to get a stimulus for that. But that's only going to be designed to provide liquidity enough liquidity ahead of the Chinese New Year period to have financial stability, and you're not gonna be able to change the fundamentals that it has to deal with your kicking the can down the road on the leverage issue or the de leveraging issue, but you're not going to be able to change the fact that the global economy slowing that investors last quarter have kind of changed their mind about how strong the economy really is. And actually how weak. It could be and that's going to be a headwind that you can't prevent with just a stimulus package. Yes. Certainly does seem at least what happened yesterday kicking the can down the road. What about in terms of some of the other stimulus points? They've seen the couple of weeks ago that triple I caught Ben earlier this week as well vowing logic tax cuts today. Just more of a I guess papering, the overall issues are they gonna help longer Tim? I think again. Yeah, they they're designed to help the banking system says prevent any kind of run on the Bank so to speak. If there is a for some reason a negative risk event. That happens you have Chinese New Year coming in with a huge demand for cash at this time of year by by retailers. So they're going to the Bank anyway to to to to withdraw cash so banks really have a an equity shortage ran this time of year. So that's really designed to help with that. And what really the government there is trying to do is is they have to organize a soft landing of their economy. They have to prevent any kind of run on the Bank or financial crisis from the debt load that they have and they have to deal with the trade war. So they really need to have everything as calm as possible. Even that time, we're not used to focusing on cracks in the Chinese economy. But the auto sector really cracked last year in two thousand eighteen and if that happens in the housing sector this year. Well, look out below right? That's right. That's right. So they are all these potential cracks that are in the system. A lot of the loans that the banks have are related to property. A lot of the the the that that's out there is related to properties. Obviously, this is a crack that everybody's watching.

"And welcome back to coast to coast Steven Cohen with Stephen there seems to be an uncanny list of Russian journalists who have been killed or who have died. Very mysteriously. We've heard the stories of the poisoning of dissidents. Are are these connected to Putin in your opinion? What do you think? I have this problem, George, and I take it very seriously. Just like a medical doctor just like an engineer just like the best journalists, I go based only on facts. Position allegations. You don't touch rumor, well, I studied them. But if there's no factual basis to them, I can't make him part of my work. I've looked into some of these cases in which Putin is accused of having ordered the killing people there about. Some magazine which had gone, quite wild and eighty cases. Which they said Putin had been involved, but there are three or four serious one credible ones in the sense that they made it the least they have some logic to them. I found no evidence I can give you one instant based on my own knowledge. Perhaps the first case and still in some ways the most. Important Kelly was the murder of a Russian journalist name on a polar cough sky. And I think it was two thousand eight I may be off. She was entering her apartment building and stopped where the mailboxes are and you open the front door with your key and assassin came up and shot her to death. And as is the sign of a higher Chacin. He dropped the revolver at her body. This was so important that the next day Putin himself commented on it. She was very well known investigative reporter and rather anti Putin. She works for a dear friend of mine mine, whose the editor of the main independent opposition newspaper in Russia. It's called no guys yet, the new newspaper, and it's very famous. It's very forthcoming in its criticism of the Kremlin has a large following on its web, millions of people young people the editor who to this day maintains shrine to wanna back when we were there last week, my wife, and I though it was winter, and it was covered they had a beautiful garden outside the building called on his garden. So they have memorialized her life. They are deeply sentimental and caring about her. They do not believe for a minute. Putin was behind it, nor does her surviving family, which I believe is to children. So. That's what I can tell you. If they don't believe Putin was behind it. And they above all would be tuned any guilt on the part of the Kremlin. They believe. It was assassinated carried out on the orders of the leader of Chechnya. Now, this Republic of the Russian federation where she had been reporting and exposing human rights, abuses, and corruption. Most of the cases. Again, this goes to the nature of the Russian political economic system, which was created in the nineteen ninety s most of the killings of journalists. If we were to make a list of let's say twenty. Are linked to stories. They published about business corruption. Because the system still has large pockets of corruption high and low in it, and when a reporter discovers that some major project that the government officials are involved, and they are getting paid on the side or Siping siphon siphoning off large amounts of money. There is a certain culture still in Russia leftover from the nineties where that journalists becomes a target. What is this has had to do with Putin? Well, there's no evidence or nor logic because it's bad for his reputation, very bad that he's behind the most you could say is why doesn't he stop it? And then this takes us to a larger question how much does Putin actually control in a country, that's the largest territorial country in the world. Could Putin put an end to these killings if he wanted to and I don't mean to be to make a false equation. But when Obama became president. Because he was a black man and apple American for various reasons, racial hate crimes increased in this country. But we would never blame Obama for that. We would say that's built in our culture. It's lamentable lamentable aspect a legacy a residue of our past. But we would never say Obama was at fault. I think not that Putin is Obama even though he's a leader. And he has immense power to can't he doesn't. He never has any never will. Control, very substantial dark places. But he's not a boy scout. No, I mean, he's very tough, man. He's a very smart, man. He he but still the question is what could he do? I mean, it's very bad for his reputation. And you'll note that a lot of these killings take place just as he's about to go abroad on a very important economic mission is some force. So let's give it take an example from November twenty fifth which I remember because I arrived in Russia that day and then to been my birthday, well, happy belated happy belated yet another year. You remember what happened that day Russian and Ukrainian gunboats got in a brief shooting match near this bridge that Russia's built between the Russian mainland and crime eight right now, why did that happen? The American newspapers. I was reading papers today from the last two weeks and also even as late as yesterday still say that Russia was at fault. But that doesn't seem to be what happened. The small Ukrainian gunboats defied longstanding regulations that they were to stop short of the bridge. We a very narrow straits, by the way, this has nothing to do with politics is existed for centuries. Navigating those straits is difficult. So you have to wait in line. You get your instructions, and here's the key. A Russian pilot comes on board. To steer the ship through the straits. It doesn't matter if you're Ukrainian or Cuban or American ship, that's the regulation the Ukrainian gun boats. Ran. Right across the the stop line and kept going and kept going, and so the Russian helicopters and planes and gunboats came fired on them took the ships took some prisoner and created what is now a fairly big international scandal. So did this all evidence points to the president of Ukraine all of it? There's simply no one had motive when police have a homicide the first question, they ask is who had a motive Putin had absolutely no motive he was supposed to meet with Trump and Argentina remember that. Yup. Like within two days somebody wanted to sabotage that meeting. They didn't want that meeting to take place, and it did not take place Trump for whatever reason lack of resolve. Or he wasn't permitted said he wasn't going to meet with Putin. But he cited that episode is one of the reasons than. Reason. Now, the president of Ukraine on the other hand has a presidential reelection campaign coming up very soon March what is that January February about three and a half months? Three months in the poll. He's getting under nine percent. It looks like he cannot be reelected. So should we assume that he wanted to turn himself into some kind of war hero? The next day he declared martial law in the territories of Ukraine that typically vote for pro Russian candidates. They it exists today as we talk martial law. So it looks like a very cynical wag the dog. You know that expression wag wag the dog act by Kiev? I think that's a fact what I don't know is whether people in Washington encourage the president of Ukraine to do that that we don't know. Let's take some calls Steven on that. I want to talk about the Ukraine a little bit more with you. But we'll pick it up by going to Brett in Michigan to get us started. Hi, Brett, go ahead, sir. Okay. T of February twenty fourteen there was a coup d'etat. And some months later, I happened to hear a communication intercepts. With Victoria, Newland in Geoffrey Pyatt of the US State Department jubilantly celebrating their six billion coup-d'etat six billion dollar coup-d'etat. Israeli massad snipers were picking off Kiev citizens. And I think also some of the military. Just as they did. After after the the original invasion of Iraq after Afghanistan that would have been what March of all three. Same thing happened there. They disbanded the military and there's a presentation on YouTube. I think it is called the first year in Iraq the very same scenario now in Israel at Jerusalem university or Hebrew University. Start a doctor or professor Israel Shahar. Author of Jewish history. Jewish religion the weight of three thousand years. He's the fella who somewhere in the mid to late eighties to transmitted the Oded Yunan plan known as the greater Israel. Project for global conquest. So you're saying bread Israel's behind all this. What I'm saying as a combat that? Thank you for serving by the way. Happened to. No, no, even maybe Owens Broschi is a name that would ring a bell with your guest, Ellen Zabriskie. Honorable Hebrew, American Marine Corps vet US army war college Colonel. He he discovered and presents on YouTube presentation, Israel did nine eleven all the proof. And there's a there's a couple of others. All right. Well, let's get some of your reaction to that. Stephen. That's I'm not I'm not going to go with this Isreaeli behind all these various deeds because it's lace was something that I find myself, I'm comfortable with. But the episode he mentioned is very important in Ukraine. I think he missed dates. I don't think it was February twelfth February twenty twenty one twenty two when ineffective via coup the legitimately elected president of Ukraine was overthrown. Now, he's also mistaken on one thing. The tape does exist. The Torian new one who is a very high ranking member of the American State Department, and in charge of the Ukrainian operation and Jeffrey pot who was the ambassador at the time. This took place before the coup he has it after the coup, but it's even more telling before, and this is not supposition document has been published. They have a talk and they discussed the formation of a government after the overthrow of Yanukovych. What is which is yet to happen? What's interesting is the members of that government that they agreed upon between the two of them on the phone became the government of Ukraine. What do we make of that? Well, it looks as though Washington played a very big role in the overthrow of Yanukovych and the formation of the so called post. My Don government, which is still in power today. More or less. That seems to have been the case. What do we say about this? I believe it was among Obama's worst foreign policy mistakes. He was way over his head Ukraine is Slavic territory. Largely it is part of his joint centuries old civilization shared by Russia in Ukraine. The attempt to sever Ukraine from Russia lettuce today, George to where we are in this new and more dangerous Cold War that was a turning point. So it wasn't Israel. They may have been involved, but it wasn't Israel. They pulled the trigger in Ukraine in February two fourteen. It was Washington when the Soviet Union collapsed. Didn't any of those satellite countries? Want to stay with Russia? Yes. And here's what's interesting. I I wrote about this not in this book war with Russia question, Mark. But in the previous book about the end of the Soviet Union that if people say the Soviet Union was a colonial empire. It's often said yet the republic's there were fifteen republics including Russia of the Soviet Union. They all went their separate ways the ones that didn't want to go with the central Asian republics. They didn't want the end of the union for various reasons. And yet, you would think they were the most. Colonized? You see what I'm getting? Yeah. They didn't want the partly because they were receiving subsidies for Moscow, but the end of the Soviet Union set free or created fifteen new states some have worked out pretty well, some have not Ukraine in the forefront there, but the end of the Soviet Union in December nineteen ninety one is a story that yet untold is still unfolding and a lot of the things were coping with today. I would submit to international terrorism of a kind that wouldn't have existed if the Soviet Union still existed is a result of the end of the Soviet. You could be you know, I keep thinking if our fifty state salts spun office separate countries, how many of them would really make it and succeed and not a lot of them would add one thing. Unlike our states, the Soviet republics were ethnic nationality based it was an who's back Totta Georgina Ukrainian so what emerges. George is a kind of ethnic nationalism at a time in the world when ethnic nationalism is on the rise as a disruptive force. So I think I mean, not only because so the Soviet Union was the history of the twentieth century, but because the ramifications the fall out of the end of the Soviet Union. It was a great turning point in history. And we're seeing it every day today. I mean, I mean even the problems that are unfolding in France and Europe today in some ways are the ripples of the end of the Soviet Union. But certainly what we're watching in places like Ukraine. Next up. Let's go to James in Los Angeles. James takeaway. Hi, professor, Colin. Thanks for taking my call. I appreciate it. Professor cohen..

She was tapped to be the campaign director for this new Ukraine communications task force. He began to notice some strange things about the way that the conflict was being described on Russian media. I saw people claiming that the CIA had put dead bodies inside a plane, and then purposely shot it down in order to create propaganda against the Russian government people were repeating that story again, and again, and I realize we had gone through the looking glass at that point that if people could believe that they could believe almost anything SRI and his task force were responding in real time.
