CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Admits the COVID Science Is 'Gray'
"So here we have a tape I want to play. CDC director cut 14 rachelle walensky says like the science is gray, it's not black and white. Now people like Rochelle Walensky need to start to be held accountable. There needs to be responsibility taken for the mass societal pain and suffering that was inflicted. And I understand that some people say Charlie, it's time to move on from COVID. It's over. And this is not about COVID. It's not. It's about whether or not a lesson will be learned collectively by a society, whether or not the truth will be properly conveyed to a population to associate the disruption, the inflation that we're seeing is largely because of our response as well by the lack of wisdom from our leaders and the malevolence from our leaders. If we do not gain a proper understanding of the implications of our action, the not only will we repeat it, but we won't learn lessons from any sort of. Issue or campaign that we get behind. 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 a song, 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, science is immediate and we 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.
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. It would have prevented mail in ballots would have possibly prevented the great reset from enacting, but we are now living through the great U turn.

call in Harlem this evening The suspect is also reportedly dead The COVID Akron variant surge is starting to decline in some parts of the U.S. that's according to CDC director Rochelle Walensky

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.

emerging country debt team at famed investment firm GMO located in Boston and really around the world She joined GMO in 2004 from JPMorgan where she worked on ARB strategies for emerging market debt 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 things with positive yields And I think that's where EM debt has been coming in Quite an interesting So we started talking a little bit about the spread and EM debt and some of the currency risk How do you measure different currencies I know about the textbook models but what's it like in the real world It's funny that you say the textbook model of I gave a talk We have a fall client conference and in 2016 I wanted to give a talk about arbitrage And I started off with a quote because at this point it was just around the time that Japan was entering yield curve control And the quote that struck me was from 2013 and we're going to the IMF beating So ostensibly just to think about EM but if you think about the time period the European sovereign debt crisis is sort of coming to a day new law and Cypriots had just defaulted on bank debt So there's a lot of interesting stuff going on And the most crowded room at that IMF in 2013 was the bank of Japan So the assistant governor this

How Many Americans Have Died From COVID vs. With COVID?
"Brett Baer doing a great job yesterday on Fox News Sunday. Chris Wallace bolted after years with Fox News. Now he went over to CNN. So now I guess they have a set of I think they have a panel of rotating hosts. And yesterday, Brett baro was the guest host and he did a great job and he normally has the weeknight slot on Fox News, but he really held Rochelle Walensky his feet to the fire. Asking about a question that we've asked over and over, you've asked over and over, how many people in that 800,000 number have died not from COVID, but with COVID? Because now we're finding out just now two years in, oh, they've been counting deaths with COVID, so they didn't necessarily listen to her answer, this is hysterical, clearly she doesn't want to answer a very legitimate, simple question. Do you know how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to COVID are from COVID or how many are with COVID, but they had other comorbidities? Do you have that breakdown? Yes, of course, with uma crime we are following that very carefully, our death registry, of course, takes a few weeks to end as it takes a few weeks to collect. And of course, a Macron has just been with us for a few weeks, but those data will be forthcoming. Yes, we know, but I ain't gonna tell you, Brett. That's classic. That is classic. Yes, we know.

Second places. You know the court way better than I do, but I will say a lot of people have been now I'm talking about as a journalist, but as a citizen, I don't know what the CDC recommends on most issues, right? Because they've said, well, they've said, well, listen, don't test on day 5. You could go out of your house if you don't have any symptoms, but if you have, if you have a test, take it. And if you're positive, stay home. So those are necessarily in conflict with each other.
CDC Cuts Isolation Time for Americans Who Test Positive From 10 Days to 5
"MSNBC's Nicole Wallace and cut number 7 reported on the fact that the center for disease control yesterday recommended that the isolation time and the quarantine time be reduced from ten days to 5 days cut. For the science believers, I have some breaking news that has happened been announced since we've been on the air. The CDC has officially shortened the isolation period for someone who tests positive for COVID. I want to get this right. If they test positive for COVID, but they're showing no symptoms. The isolation period can be shortened by half for people who contract the virus saying that those without symptoms could safely resume mixing with others just 5 days after their positive test results. The new guidance announced as the highly transmissible automotive variant is sending daily caseloads soaring, worsening a labor shortage and forcing airlines to cancel thousands of flights, doctor walensky saying this. In the last few minutes see, I'm a crime variant is spreading quickly and has the potential to impact all facets of our society, the new recommendations balance what we know about the spread of the virus and the protection provided by vaccination and booster doses. These updates ensure people can safely continue their daily lives. MSNBC yesterday, as she makes the announcement that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is cutting its recommended isolation time. Now, she's reading that statement. It gets a little confusing here. The agency yesterday said that the change applies to everyone regardless of vaccination status, and that after the 5 days is up, people should wear a mask around other people at all times for another 5 days. They use the term isolation and they use the term quarantine.

Moderna Chief Predicts Existing Vaccines Will Struggle With Omicron
"Minutes ago, the Financial Times reported that the Moderna chief announced in a chief executive that existing vaccines will be much less effective at tackling on the earlier strains of the coronavirus, and warned it would take months before pharmaceutical companies could manufacture a new variant specific jab at scale. Have you heard that before? No, news to me. News to me as well. What does that say to you about deputy president klain Doctor Fauci's Collins and walensky? Well, some of this I think is sort of understandable human error. When you believe, perhaps for ideological reasons, that something will work and you begin to get proof that it doesn't work, you're immediate prescription is to do more of that thing. And I think that while vaccinations did offer, I think provably offer a lot of protection to the millions of Americans who got them. It's impossible to call them anything other than disappointment in the sense that most Americans thought of vaccines as some of the sort of famous vaccines that we know of where you get the vaccine and then you don't get the disease. And perhaps you're given protection your offered protection for the rest of your life. And now we have a vaccine in which you can get the disease. You can spread the disease and the protection last maybe 6 months. So I think while I thought, at the time that the development of the vaccine in such a short period of time was president Trump's perhaps greatest achievement as he left office. You have to say now it's a much more complicated picture and people are disappointed by what the vaccines turned out to be.
The Committee to Unleash Prosperity's Phil Kerpen on the Inhumanity of America's Child Masking Policies
"Welcome back to one on one with the cofounder of the committee to unleash prosperity, Phil cur pin. Phil, you've been very, very charitable to the interpretations of certain so called health policies coming out of the federal government. Does the charitable interpretation is it plausible? Can it be extended over every aspect and I'll focus on one right now? So maybe herd immunity was they want to encourage people not to protect themselves what have you. But when it comes to children, I find it very difficult to see a charitable interpretation for anything we've seen. You've mentioned it yourself. The incredibly low figures. Of children who aren't sick with something else, the conclusion is if you look at the statistics, they're basically immune. They don't catch it or if they do, they don't even realize it, and they get over it. So kids are not vulnerable. Instead, they have to wear masks everywhere on planes in schools. I walk past this little pre-K every morning. Drives me insane. The kids are outside in the sandpit playing with bloody marks on its child abuse. And now we have the. Well, we've got the new vaccines and you can do it to 5 year olds next. This is science denial. They say conservatives in our science. But if they're basically immune, then why are we asking why are we vaccinating? Is there thusly is there a charitable interpretation for what the CDC will walensky what Fauci? What school administrators are doing? I don't really have a charitable interpretation on that. I think it's been outrageous. Look, I mean, you know, it's not zero risk for children, nothing in this world is, but it is normal. Children, it is no dangerous for children than any other respiratory virus. And so if we are going to subject children to this disruption to all of these interventions, then logically they would be permanent. There's no luck. There's no logical endpoint because they were never at any more than normal risk. And we've been much worse than this regard than the vast majority of the world. There are some other countries that mask down to age 6, which I think is outrageous. Countries like France and Italy and Spain go down to age 6. Nobody goes down to H two, except us, maybe Japan and Korea. But no one no one in the

Doctor Rochelle Walensky with the CDC says there's some, you know, ongoing downward trends when it comes to cases and hospitalizations and deaths, But, you know, Dr Michael Sag is also said because of the Memorial Day weekend. It'll be about another week before we see the real impact of any upticks. But right now there is a bit of an uptake around here was Hospitalizations. But director Rochelle Walensky also says there is still much work to do. Those that are age 12 and over we have been able to vaccinate 50% of the country. This is great news. But there is more work to be done in the vaccinations. Obviously starting to slow down. I think everybody that's wanted one his God. One, but the emphasis still coming from health professionals. If you have not been vaccinated, please do so now, As we start to open up and get back to work, get back to school and see the numbers start to plateau and come down in a lot of cases. We've got these new variants out there so We're not out of the woods yet. So the big question as people get back to work. Should businesses require their employees to be vaccinated before they return to work? There's a new poll out. Michael Bauer joins us now to talk more about this. Michael. What this poll find here. What do people think? Well, JT, there's actually a sepsis Coronavirus Index Poll says. First of all that over a very short period of time. Now Americans have begun to return to doing things that many haven't done in a long time. They see less risk than ever in returning to their pre pandemic lives. You can go back to march in the same exact poll. 60% of Americans said they saw large to moderate risk and returning to their pre Corona virus lives. This week, only 30% saying that so over a span of a couple of months you've seen half of that concern drop off the face of the earth. But where there is concern comes down to whether or not employers should require vaccinations before employees can return to the workplace. And there is a virtual even split down the middle here as it pertains to Americans. 52%, saying they support requiring proof of vaccination to return to work. 48% are opposed to that. Now going back into an Arizona State University pull at the end of April. They said at that point in time, more than 60% of companies in the U. S would require proof of vaccination from their employees to return to work places like United Airlines, who said that they were going to have all of their employees vaccinated. Well, they've backed off of that a bit. They aren't so loud about that anymore. They Seem to be a little bit more quiet about where they actually stand as far as the number of vaccines that have happened throughout their workforce there, But what we're clearly seeing here is that for the country's largest companies, mandatory vaccinations, of course, would protect service.

"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.
