The Left Media Is Great at Leaving Crumbs Then Moving On

Sen. Ron Johnson Shares His Plans to Hold Fauci Accountable
"So senator, unfortunately being in the Senate minority, you're not going to have as much power to be able to subpoena or to be able to cross examine witnesses, but you'll still get some time. Can you walk us through what your personal plans are to hold Fauci accountable and walensky and the vaccine manufacturers? Well, Charles, you're may or may not be aware. I've already sent close to 50 different oversight letters on the whole issues. One of the most troubling ones that I literally just got a backer hand response was the end of December of 2021 where I was highlighting the apparent out of control manufacturing process where we show these hot lots. Let me just quickly answer some numbers. So for the flu vaccine over 30 years, there's been one lot of flu vaccine that had a 137 adverse events reported on the VAERS system. Again, for the flu, one lot, 137 adverse events. For the COVID vaccine, we have one lot that has 5297 adverse events. We have a 186 lots with over a thousand adverse events. 80% of all U.S. adverse events are associated with just 1% of the vaccine lots, 80% of serious adverse events are associated with about 5% of the last. Now, I come from manufacturing. That is the manufacturing process on paper that looks completely out of control, it took the FDA almost a year to get back to me and what they basically reported, the CDC and they just said, well, we don't see any variation in lots.

Mpox has faded in the US. Who deserves the credit?
"Reports of new cases of empaths formerly known as monkeypox are down to a trickle in the U.S.. Health officials are shutting down emergency mobilizations. We had our peak of impacts of over 400 cases in August. The threat of empath seems to have virtually disappeared from the public consciousness, CDC director doctor Rochelle Walensky says there are a number of reasons for this. We had a lot of education that was getting out there both to providers who could educate their patients and who knew what to look for know what to test for. But also to patients and to community members who started to learn how to that this was out there and that they needed to do things to keep themselves safe. There's also a vaccine and past research suggests there may be limits in how many times monkeypox virus will spread from person to person. Is a rare disease, mostly among men who have sex with men caused by infection with a virus that's in the same family as the one that causes smallpox. I'm Ed Donahue

Steve Deace: COVID Vaccines Lost Efficacy Since August 2021

"Of scrutiny ever since the pandemic hit. And a fair amount of criticism, I think it's fair to say. And now it's director, doctor walensky, has come out with an internal review of proposing some reforms. We welcome now, doctor Leslie Cantor. She's chair of Rutgers department of global urban health. So doctor Kendra, thank you so much for being here because I'm very curious about your reaction to what you've heard so far of the CDC. Are they going in the right direction? Absolutely. I was delighted when doctor walensky asked for an outside review to be done. You know, many of our organizations promised to be learning organizations and to examine what we've done well and not so well, but very few places do it. But in fact, she's had this outside review and she has it in hand and she's committed to making some changes that focus on impact in public health. So from my perspective, that is a great thing. It's not an easy thing to do in a large organization of any type. But I believe that by stating so publicly when she intends to do, there's no choice but to follow through. So do you have a sense of what could be improved? I won't say what went wrong. But what could be improved? And one thing I heard from somebody who had been the CDC, for example, is there's just too much bureaucracy. It's too hard for the excellent scientists, I'm told excellent scientists were at the CDC to make it up the food chain. Yeah, you know, I've had opportunities as part of my work to partner with the CDC and every little tiny thing needs to have clearance. They couldn't do anything on Twitter for the longest time. So I think the focus on being more nimble, getting information out quickly, making sure that information is communicated for the general public rather than just for other scientists. Those are great things. I also want to acknowledge though that there are external forces that influence how this CDC behaves. And one of those is how Congress funds the CDC. And so if some of their funding could be for general matters rather than for individual diseases, that would also make a real and meaningful difference. Well, what about the messaging part? Because I hear about that from a lot of people who are not scientists who are not doctors, because the messaging sometimes is confusing. It's too technical. It seems to move all over the place. We're not sure what the message is. Can that be fixed readily or is that just inherent in science? I don't think it's inherent in science. I'm a behavioral scientist. I've tried really hard to learn to be clear to be concise and hopefully that's one of the reasons you've had me on a couple of times. It can be done. But you do need to train people to do it well. And I think there needs to be a lot more influence from people like me rather than just from MDs and PhDs who are used to writing in rather verbose, hard to understand ways. It sounds like lawyers, I'm a lawyer, so I know that phenomenon, trust me. Okay, let me hit a couple things here at the end because people would want to know about it. First of all, I was monkeypox. Where are we with monkeypox right now? And by the way, the CDC response to it. Yeah. So we're trying to get more vaccine developed. This is another failure of public health. We should have always had enough smallpox vaccine in the national stockpile to make sure we could deal with something like this. Monkeypox, it's the same basic vaccine as for smallpox. It looks like we may invoke the national defense production act to get more vaccine. But again, we should not have been caught flat footed on this. And again, that's one of the things that hopefully the CDC reorganization will help with. Somebody should have said, hey, guess what? We don't have smallpox vaccine. We ought to be making more even before we need it. So as I understand it, we stopped inoculating people for small packs, about 1970 or so. I have one because I'm much older than that, but my children do not. But what about polio? We're still vaccinating everybody for polio and now that's showing up at least a wastewater in the New York area. Yeah, this is one of the reasons that we have to take a public health approach rather than an individual decision making approach. So many people have not gotten vaccinated against polio, even though it is supposed to be required for going to school, that now polio has found its way back in a little bit. We don't want it to go any further. But this is one of the reasons that you hear people like me saying this can't just be about individual decision making. We have to think about the good of the whole, otherwise we're just going to be dealing with diseases like polio that we thought had been eradicated. And finally, doctor, helped me just understand to the CDC, which affects all of these things. Should we think of it like a fema that responds to emergencies? Should we think about it as somebody who's getting ready for the next one is prepared for it to begin with? And by the way, to pick up on your point, is it just the CDC or is it need to be all of government? Because there are a lot of agencies involved in these things. Well, I appreciate you raising that. It really needs to be all of government. And we really need to be making sure that even the research we do is more community focused based on what communities, care about, and developing solutions and getting them out the door quickly, not waiting for very long, slow academic publications. That's doctor Leslie Cantor from the Rutgers

The two countries account for more than 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control has announced an overhaul of the agency to revamp everything from its operations to its culture. Doctor Rochelle Walensky says the agency failed to meet expectations during the pandemic, doctor David Wesley of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health as well, at least a step. They're looking to see what they can be doing better going forward. So we'll see what happens with this overhaul, but I do think they're starting to take a look inward. And walensky says it will aim to be a change. The culture from insular and academic and change it to one that will react more quickly to problems.

this week but we do want to talk about leisure right now For that I'm joined by Bloomberg pursuits deputy editor Jim daddy Also travel editor Nikki eckstein they're here with us to help build a perfect itinerary for our summer vacations Yes there's still time to do that Jim I want to start with you though Why are we listening to mellow yellow Mellow yellow has a prominent role in one of the stories this week Summer travel season is upon us And we're all feeling a little bit sensory deprived And so Nikki came up with this really great idea about how to reinvigorate your senses So we picked 5 the 5 senses And found itineraries for each one where you can kind of engage those senses and get back in touch with them Nikki what were you thinking whenever you were had this Wide world of travel and how to engage your senses You know we always think about travel in terms of a destination for our right Where am I going This year it feels a little bit like people don't care where they're going They want to go anywhere and they want to feel something And I think in comparison to how we were traveling in 2021 we were still a little bit conscious of COVID We were still social distancing And I just remember going to the Caribbean and seeing the bluest water I thought I had ever seen in my whole entire life because my eyes had not laid You know I hadn't laid eyes on that color and so long but touch the sound of people close by all of those other senses were still far in the background And this year I think we can really flood our senses in a less restrained way and that's what we were going for here Yeah I remember going to the Caribbean as well And the sun on my skin just felt a little bit warmer You didn't get to touch any wells though Did not touch any well anyway I want to talk a little bit about that Nikki because I think this was such a great way to approach the travel section in the pursuit section for the magazine And I want to start with that sense of touch You found an area of the world where people can travel to not so easily It turns out And make contact with whales Yeah so you think about Baja California in Mexico and you think about Cabo This is a part of that state Granted cabos in Baja California This is regular Baja California just north of that And there's a bay with four sheltered lagoons in Baja California It's called laguna San Ignacio And there is an operator called Baja expeditions that runs the only luxury leaning trips to this area getting there is a little bit of a schlep But once you arrive you stay in sort of like a plush safari camp kind of a situation And you go out on these boat rides where you can visit gray whales These are huge animals They grow up to almost a 100,000 pounds each They're enormous and you're on tiny little boats and what do you do you splash in the water to draw their attention and they come right up to you And they introduce you to their babies who are born in these lagoons learning how to swim and you can interact with them and you can physically touch them They give you permission to touch them which is pretty unprecedented in terms of wildlife encounters and ethical wildlife encounters Nikki the writer Sarah Clemens has a really funny image Describing what it's like to touch one of these whales These are huge animals as you mentioned but how did you describe it It's a little bit

Documents Reveal Feds Paid Media Outlets to Praise COVID Vaccines
"Cut 23 doctor Robert Malone, we have clear evidence the government has invested over $1 billion in marketing vaccines. And explicitly the CDC is acting as a political arm. It has weaponized public health for political purposes on the part of the federal government. Furthermore, governed in scientists as you know, we now have because of freedom of information act, the reveal that the government, this administration, this executive branch has invested over $1 billion in promoting these narratives in social media and in the legacy media. $1 billion, so first of all, Ron DeSantis held some sort of summit looked like something out of Wayne enterprises like bat cave where everyone has their own Zoom call and they did this really bizarre thing where the whole wall was like everyone's face on the Zoom call. Just really hope that no one had a, it's the guy from CNN that had that moment. You know what I'm talking about? Just hope that didn't happen. Toobin, Jeffrey toobin. Rochelle Walensky comes out, she says, look, science, it's gray. It's not black and white. So now she tell us that science has nuance, play cut 14. And then maybe the other thing I'll say is this area gray. And I have frequently said, we're going to lead with the song and science is going to be the foundation of everything we do. That is entirely true. I think public heard that as science is full science is black and white, the science is immediate and get the answer. And then we make the decision based on the answer. And the truth is science is great. And science is not always immediate. And it sometimes it takes months and years to actually find out the answer. Oh, really? Science is gray, like maybe the vaccine doesn't work for everybody or the vaccine might have adverse events, or maybe the vaccine actually might have resulted in some people dying or azithromycin or hydroxychloroquine or prozac very well could have helped people with COVID. Now, what doctor Robert Malone was talking about is a $1 billion going into legacy media companies to prop up the vaccine. There is going to be a steady flow of information the media does not want you to talk about our cover. Around all of this, coming out in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

We Are in the Midst of 'The Great U-Turn'
"We are in the midst of what is called the great U turn. The great U turn is when the people who are in charge of the pharmaceutical companies and we spent most of the beginning of this year, by the way, talking about omicron and lockdowns and all this, and it's totally gone. But now all of a sudden, the justice side is bubbling up to the surface. Where those of us that are not going to allow the crimes against humanity that were enacted from the hydroxychloroquine azithromycin, Ivermectin, being prevented from being administered, we're not going to just sit idly by and allow this to continue. So because of that, we need to kind of make sure that our terms are right. And what was actually done to get us there. Cut 13, the CDC director admits now that the vaccine is not as effective as they claimed and quote had two little caution and too much optimism. Play cut 13. Can we even improved? Well, I think I can tell you where I was when the CNN became that it was 95% effective on the vaccine. So many of us wanted to be helpful. So many of us wanted to say, okay, this is our ticket out, right? Now we're done. So I think we have perhaps two little caution and too much optimism. For some good things that came our way. I really do. I think all of us wanted this to be done. Nobody said waning when all this vaccine is going to work. Oh, well, maybe it'll work at all where off. Nobody said, well, the next variant doesn't, it doesn't, it's not as popular dense and variant. And that's where Shell walensky, who has been going on propaganda network after propaganda network. And is now admitting that the vaccines aren't as effective as we would have liked, had two little caution and too much optimism. Never talking about antivirals or natural abilities to be able to boost the immune system, vitamin D booster shots were never something that was significantly talked about. Of course not. That would have been too easy. It would have empowered people.

synagogue Police say a tip led them to the lock bike which was found on a trail a key was also found on Malik akram's body after he was killed inside congregation Beth Israel I'm Brian schuck I'm Barry Ritz you're listening to masters of business on Bloomberg radio My extra special guest this week is Tino van der steel She is the head of themed investment firm GMOs emerging market Debt team So let's talk a little bit about the state of EM investing today So looking at this from an equity market perspective I look at what took place in China and the change in the government and the change in attitudes towards companies like Alibaba kind of makes me look at the country at least now and say they appear to be frightening from an equity perspective I'm would be reluctant to put capital at risk there What do you make of the geopolitical worlds and the various risks they present are there certain countries that hey there's no respect for the rule of law or sanctity of contracting or private property for that matter And therefore regardless of the potential upside in the dead instruments we just don't believe that any money is safe there because of that It's a good question and I would say for the fundamental credit analysts who we have on the team we rely a lot on precedents frankly So I'll take an example from a few years ago in well first I guess in 2014 in Kazakhstan and then later a few years later in Azerbaijan where we weren't involved in the Kazakh one there was a big bank in Kazakhstan And I'd actually don't know the name of it but the ticker was beatas And over the course of a weekend they rewrote their bankruptcy laws and basically wiped out the bank creditors And so you look at that and you say gosh that's a serious risk that we should take into account If we weren't involved because the risk premium that you were being paid over Kazakhstan wasn't enough to even contemplate such things at the time In that case they went on to have quite a lot of debt relief for the country So this is 2014 after that oil market collapse and so oil sensitive countries like Kazakhstan need to get relief and so forth You fast forward to Azerbaijan and there was a fascinating case that we were involved in We owned some bonds from this bank called the international bank of Azerbaijan It was 90 something percent government owned so we considered it a state owned enterprise That followed that same playbook over the weekend they wrote rewrote their bankruptcy laws and so forth and they gave a very mild haircut to creditors It actually was more or less NPP neutral So they got all the reputational hit of doing this but they got none of the debt relief that kazakhs filed that under a head scratcher why on earth would they do this It's still in the London courts by the way I actually wrote to the finance minister of Azerbaijan I said this just doesn't make any sense Conditional on your writing off creditors you should at least get some debt received for doing it But to your point all you can do is file these away and understand what's happened in the past and make some educated judgment about how likely the current administration or dictator or whatever it is that the country is likely to do that in the future That's an art Like I said the credit research people on my team have a very hard job Sounds like they got some bad counsel at Azerbaijan That's kind of interesting Let's go in the opposite direction When you look around the world where is there safe EM debt and I'm assuming the safer the debt perhaps the lower the potential alpha you're going to see from that is that a fair way to look at this You're asking about a cake and eating it too Yeah pretty much Yeah So earlier we talked about 14 trillion in negative yielding debt So we ask ourselves the purpose of holding a certain class of government debt we used to refer to it as the anchor to windward portfolio The hell or high water portfolio is to have ballast in your portfolio in the event that there is a severe equity market decline or risk assets have their own decline whatever that is The cost of holding that debt right now in many of the major markets whether it's bonds or oats or JJ bees or so forth is holding a negative yielding asset It's an insurance premium almost So the question is is can you choose from the group of positive yielding EM local markets on a currency hedged or unhedged basis in the event that you're willing to take some currency risk and you think it's well priced That has the defensive properties of these developed market spawns but with positive yields And the answer to that is yes there's a small clutch of these things They are not countries for the most part They're not the poor countries They are the Taiwan and Koreas of the world But those markets do present as relatively safe No not safe from financial repression None of us is safe from financial depression But safe in anchor to windward statistical sense Really really kind of interesting What parts of the world do you excited about Any countries that you're looking at and thinking wow this is underpriced and there's a ton of upside here I would say the thing that's glaring right now are the stressed and distressed emerging countries So we're at if you take out the real wise of the pandemic the difference between the high yield sub piece of our hard currency benchmark versus the investment grade one is that very very wide levels So not pandemic levels but very wide levels of about 500 over investment grade Within that subset there are arbitrage like positions that can be set up and by that what I mean is these are countries whose bond prices indicate a high likelihood of default So can you ensure the default case while holding on for the notable case And in a handful of those countries the answer to that is yes And I think those make some of the most interesting opportunities You want to name names What countries present those sort of opportunities I would say Ivory Coast is one Ghana is one El Salvador is one So there's some interesting ones Really interesting You mentioned the response to the pandemic How did various.

and high yield bonds before we get into the details of some of the currency issues I have to ask how big is the opportunity in EM bonds How large is this market I don't know compared to let's say U.S. corporates or treasuries So round numbers for dollar denominated bonds sovereign and quality sovereign external debt in the ambi global index around 1.4 trillion For the corporate EM index and it's also around 1.4 trillion and for local currency EM debt it's around two and a half trillion Now that's just the index eligible stuff I think you could safely multiply that by another 50% to capture all possible investable debt Has this been expanding Because what we seem to have seen over the past I don't know a decade or two is really a bit of a shortage of high quality sovereign debt What's the growth rate of emerging market debt look like So from memory I would say each of these were probably about half again this size or half the size maybe 15 years ago So it's growing For sure there's more interest in it I was looking this morning at the Bloomberg global aggregate into action they produced the sub index of negative yielding debt That's about 14 trillion So folks are asked to find

"Little bit later, but We start off with schools once again in Tempe. There is an open our schools billboard. They've gone up off I 10 Tempe Union High School district. They want to move back in person learning. So parents said that it's near Elliot Road, saying that the district's heir failing our kids, and that's what it says Tempe Union High School district is failing Our kids open our schools. Parents are beginning to start voicing their opinions because they're beginning to see that this has become overtly political. We had Rochelle Walensky, who is the CDC director has sent a couple of different things over the last week or so again. You are talking about a very odd time in American politics. When you have largely a Democrat, you know, administration. Why shouldn't say largely, it's completely a Democrat administration. And the Democrats hold the House and Senate and we know that labor unions are big, big big supporters of Democrats and vice versa. That's where them not not saying membership is much but definitely management in the unions. Donates the line share their money to Democrat candidates and causes so there usually is a pretty strong alliance there. But if you look at the alliance is beginning to break down, the mayor of Chicago who was no conservative, is furious with the union in the city of Chicago and saying it's time for kids to get back into the classroom. You've got the head of the CDC Rock, Rochelle, Wolinsky or Wilensky, saying this about schools opening Data that suggests that there is not a lot of transmission and that is happening in schools when the proper mitigation measures are taken when there is masking when there is distancing, de dense ification of the classroom, ventilation contact, tracing hand washing all of those things when they're done well, the data suggests the science suggests that there is not a lot of transmission happening in schools, and in fact, the case rates and schools are generally lower than They are in the population surrounding it. So what's happening is two fronts where it's beginning to be infuriating to some parents. There have been parents have been paying attention to this for a long time. And I'm not. I don't blame the parents that don't you are trying to keep your head above water. You have to figure out how to educate your kids. Covert 19 in the spread of covert 19 has been very severe in Arizona, a number of times more than once. So parents were just going on with their lives, and now they're starting to see the adverse effect on their kids. The better part of two school years have been affected by this, and now we're seeing more and more kids are beginning to fail. One of the stories less kids now going to school online or in person than before. Parents are starting a home school. Other parents were taking their Children to charter schools and in the other district and the ones that it really hurts are the are the families that everybody claims to be the champion for which are working class or low income families. They don't have those kind of options. Generally speaking, those parents are not the ones that have the ability to drive their kid to another district and get them in a school or to put them in a private school. Or they have one parent. Stay home in home school, their kids, they're stuck without us. Shins, which means their kids are in the worst situation of online learning with no way out. And people are starting to see it. They're seeing it for the politics that it is when you've got the very Democrat mayor of Chicago against the Teachers union when you have Rochelle Walensky, who is the CDC director in a Democrat administration, reiterating two or three times this week that the safest and best place for kids is in school that covert 19 is not spreading in schools is longest protocol is being met. And everywhere we look It is being met at a much higher rate. So we are keeping businesses open, which I believe we should. That was one of the excuses that we heard from the people here in Arizona that as long as the community spread remains high, we're not open in the schools. But every study shows that when the schools are obeying protocol, the spread is so much lower in schools. It's actually safer to be there. And for kids to be home. It's a safer place. So this has become well, it always has been, but it's become apparent to people that this is an overtly political maneuver, and they're beginning to lose ground very quickly. So now they're talking about funding. Well, we have a lot of money in the rainy day fund here, Arizona and once before, when the teachers wanted to raise the governor went to the Republicans and Legislature because they have the majority and they went to work with other, um There's educating experts, education experts and they put together a plan and they gave them the 20% raise. They were asking for and it took the wind out of the sails of the unions, then So now, if their complaint is mitigation strategies and having money to mitigate well, there's money in the rainy day fund. And what's funny is point to the other school districts, one of the largest. I think it is the largest school district in Arizona is Mesa public schools. And Mason's back in class. You look at so many of the East Valley District's that are doing this. And they're spending money. And they're making sure that the mitigation strategies and protocols are in place. So if these other districts canoeists if may sicken, do it. Why can't Phoenix Union It's a great question. Why isn't Tempe Union? And the fact is it's because of the leadership of the district is working hand in hand with the air. They ate you. They're one and the same. Because the teachers and those unions will do a sick out and shut everything down. And unfortunately for them, the tables are beginning to turn so their plans are now changing and you will see a change in direction from them. They will be the heroes once again that they will be now that the vaccine is out there. They're going to come up with a plan that's going to cost a ton of money. To say we will come back in school when you do these three or four things, and they're going to be impossible to do and it's gonna look like we wanted to go back to school, but we just wanted to make sure it was safe. The data already says it's safe. Gonna talk more about this. I mean, I'm not going to give up on this topic. It's is important. Anything else that's going on in our schools. But first we've got to get it over. Taylor Kepner up. She's got breaking news. Katya are.
