"white house commission" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.

"And if you've ever experienced trauma in your life, small or big, whether it's the little traumas that happened to us as children or the big traumas that can happen to us through war or abuse, this is going to be an important conversation because it's with an extraordinary human being. I am very close friend of mine. A Harvard trained psychiatrist and physician, doctor James Corden. Who's just come back from two and a half weeks in Ukraine. He's the author of transforming trauma, the path to hope and healing. He is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit center for mind body medicine in Washington D.C.. And he's recognized for using self awareness, self care, group support, to heal population and individual trauma. He's a professor at Georgetown medical school and was chairman under president Clinton and GW Bush of The White House commission on complementary and alternative medicine policy. Welcome James, Jim. Thank you, Mark. As always, good to be with you. Yeah, well, I'm just really excited for this conversation because we are living in a very traumatic time. And we recently had Gabriel mate on the podcast talking about both micro traumas that happened to us during our lives and childhood and macro traumas. And right now you are in a situation that is pretty fraught with macro trauma. You literally just came back from Ukraine had bombs falling all around you. People you knew literally were killed from these bombs just a few feet away from you. And you've returned to America and it's important that you share your story and tell us about what happened. And give people an insight into what's happening there on the ground as well as the overall work around trauma. So you've written some of the worst traumas ever, or you've been to Kosovo and work with war trauma. You've been in Haiti in the worst moments there in their history. I was there with you. In 2010, you were you go to wherever the problems are, whether it's the primary reservation in South Dakota or suicides or rampant amongst children or Katrina in New Orleans after the hurricane. And wherever this problem is, you show up to help heal, not just individuals, but populations. And you've created a model for doing it this quite powerful. But I'd like you to maybe share about what you've witnessed recently and how the war is affecting the state of mental health in both children and adults and what you're doing there to mitigate some of these long-term effects of trauma that the Ukrainians are now experiencing. yeah, you know, I think you're talking about sort of where I've been and what I've done. I think one of the functions certainly for me and I think for all of us as physicians is to be with people when they're going through the most difficult times. So this is whether those times are manifested in physical illness or psychological trauma. And so this is, this is work that I feel called to do and that feels very much a part of my identity as a physician, as a psychiatrist. I think the important thing to understand about Ukraine, which is one of the important things to understand is that everybody in the country is both mobilized to deal with the Russian invasion and committed just about everybody is a 100% committed to it. And just about everybody is seriously traumatized. When I talk with people there, they also have a wonderful sense of humor, which mitigates the trauma in some ways. They say nobody's normal here. Almost in our DNA. Yeah. And it's true. It's a whole country that's under assault. And if you read what Vladimir Putin, the Russian president says, it's clear that he wants to exterminate the people and the country. And he has no regard for human life. And the actions in any part of the country, primarily in the eastern part of the country, demonstrate that. And people in Ukraine are very connected to one another. Everybody I met in the western part of Ukraine a thousand close to a thousand miles away from the east, they all have connections. My cousins in Crimea, my friend, I went to school with us in Donbass, where the fighting is so raging for so long for 8 years now, really. Since last February. And so they feel all of the losses, the losses of life, the destruction of ohms. The utter annihilation of cities feels very personal to everybody. So everybody is deeply affected. I think for us to understand that, you know, I'm thinking, you know, you live in western Massachusetts. So with Boston were wiped out. What would that, what would the repercussions of that be like for you? For me, you know, when I was in when I was in Kyiv in the capital, there were bombs falling 500 yards away. It was the closest one. What if a bomb was falling 500 yards away from me here in D.C.? What would that feel like? Yeah. And I think that gives a sense of the forces that are producing the trauma in the entire population. And what's happening now is that people all over Ukraine are waking up to the effects of psychological trauma. The focus for the first months of the war was very much on, you know, we've got to win this fight. We've got to keep the Russians from invading Kyiv. We've got to push them back. All still absolutely vitally important, but they're beginning to recognize in the schools and the hospitals and the clinics and the community based organizations and in the military, the effect of psychological trauma on everybody of every age. Yeah. Incredible gym to hear what you're sharing about being there with bombs dropping just a few hundred yards away. And I think it's really when you look at the history of Ukrainian that and actually my family is part of my family's from Ukraine from Kyiv, way back when a hundred years ago when they were traumatized from the programs in the steady and were beaten by the Russians and the Ukrainians that had to leave and flee to America. And then the Ukrainians were subject to Nazi occupation and to stalinist terror and I remember being Kev years ago and I remember walking down this incredible boulevard with these beautiful chestnut trees and it was the march that the Nazis took a 100,000 Jews on to a trench outside town. And literally just line them up at this place called Baba Yar and shot a 100,000 Jews like nothing. And buried them alive. Many of them still alive.

"He wouldn't have gotten it actually, had it not been some campaigning from folks like Daniel Dae Kim, who recognize he is a pioneer, he's the one who can kind of step up with some cloud and be like, yo, this guy deserves it, you know, and so, and the thing is that when he got it and all the headlines were up that week, most people were like, wait, he doesn't already have one? You know what I mean? Like people were like astonished that the guy with this prolific of a resume did not already have one. And undeniably, it is actually, you're right, this ad that is happening in these 90 something years old in after so many decades in the business, but then also it kind of makes them unassailably deserved of we need more people like that were like, yeah, we don't have a lot of people who made it that far. And have that kind of status. And after doing his best work ever, honestly. Oh my God. In the best movie he's ever been in. I mean, come on. Yeah. Yeah. And you know what, yeah, I want to also just shout out a little bit Daniel day Kim. Not just because of what he did in this effort to get attention to and rally people around James hung. But honestly, I think dangles really come into his own as a voice and politically. He's now on The White House commission, you know, The White House initiative in Asian American Pacific islanders commission and I don't know, it's just good to see him getting some props and for his chops. As a leader. So shout out to Daniel. Yeah. All right, so we have done our good. Now let's move to the bat. And I guess I'll take the bad first. So my bad is kind of a weird, bad in some ways. It came out of this conversation that Phil you and I had and it was prompted by the fact that I had reached out to a model. You me knew, right? Kind of the first as they framed it first plus sized, I guess, supermodel to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and there were some people who predictably were shitty towards her on Twitter and she was awesome back at them. Anyway, we're like, oh, you know, we should have a conversation with her. She seems kind of cool. And I reached out. She is Asian American, by the way. And she is Asian American. But she's not just Asian American, right? So she's Asian American and it turns out she is like an aoki. That is to say, she is like the granddaughter of rocky aoki of bena Hana fame. And her uncle and aunt are like, Steve aoki, the DJ, and Devin, the actor model, et cetera..

"Coming up soon for cloture and final vote So she would be the second black woman to ever serve on the 9th circuit Tell us a little about her background Well I believe she was with the ACLU for some time as a litigator And I think it has argued cases and more than half the circuits and I believe she was at the Department of Justice maybe in the civil rights division and has litigated civil rights issues there And then has spent several years on the California superior court in Los Angeles One of the other nominees that was deadlock was Charlotte Sweeney who was nominated to the district court for the district of Colorado Well she's been in practice I think for a couple of decades It seems very experienced and has won some high profile cases involving issues of equality for LGBTQ people and she would be if confirmed the first woman LGBT individual west of the Mississippi to be a district judge And there was not very much discussion of her in committee And the senators seem satisfied and didn't ask her a whole lot of questions during her hearing So it's puzzling exactly why she didn't get more votes But that's where she sits and they could be a discharge petition on her as well And what do you know about herndon Vera Who was nominated to the central district of California to be a district court judge Well he also I think sits on the superior court in California and very little questioning or discussion about him But I do believe he had a background in public interest law for a large firm that conducts that kind of litigation So maybe that was of concern to the Republican senators But in any event he had a similar 1111 Thai boat But I don't believe that he's been controversial on the state bench there where he said in Los Angeles So could it be that Biden is getting to the more controversial nominees that in the beginning he nominated people who went through easily And now he's getting to the more controversial ones Well it could be then but also it seems like the Republicans are doubling down and raising issues that really don't seem very appropriate For example it's highly Thomas They talked about loudon county down here in Virginia where there was an issue involving a transgender student but subsequent to the time they questioned her it became clear that the Republicans didn't have their facts correct She said she had never even heard of the case And so that's not surprising because it was very low profile So it's just hard to know but it does seem except for Lindsey Graham There have been very few departures from party line votes in committee on the Republican side And he has gone back to the old practice from the Obama administration and earlier saying if the president sends up a nominee who is well qualified then Graham will vote for that person because he gives the president the benefit of the doubt And so it's been unusual when he's voted no but he has voted no on some and has voted pass on others which is allowed some people to then get to the floor and be confirmed And so but everybody else is pretty much voting no With some exceptions Especially as to appellate nominees Coming up next on the Bloomberg law show I'll continue this conversation with professor Carl Tobias of the university of Richmond law school and we'll talk about the results of The White House commission examining changes to the Supreme Court I'm June grosso and you're listening to Bloomberg At boost.

"Kristen Holmes, CNN national correspondent in for David chalian. And this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Friday, October 15th. To pack or not to pack, and we're not talking about the holidays, we're talking about the Supreme Court, and even The White House commission tasked with answering that question isn't sure. So back in April, president Joe Biden puts together a commission to take a close look at the Supreme Court. And yesterday they released draft materials of their findings so far. Now, before we go into what that commission is doing and what they're so far recommending, let's talk about why this is even a thing. And if you're dying to know what they said and know the context already, just skip ahead a few minutes. So the Supreme Court as it stands now is skewed conservative. 6 to three. President Trump confirmed three conservative justices during his term and Democrats and liberals obviously found this very concerning when it comes to abortion rights and gun rights. Among other things. So those on the left have been voicing for a while that more justices should be added to the court. And obviously, in this case, with a democratic president, they would be liberal justices. This is a term that critics call court packing. So court packing was a big question on the 2020 campaign trail. And the question then candidate Joe Biden really skirted around, which frustrated a lot of Democrats. Instead of siding with liberals completely, Biden promised this instead on CBS 60 minutes last October. If I liked it, what I will do is I'll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats Republicans, liberal conservative. And I will ask them to over a 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it's getting out of whack. The way in which this being handled. And it's not about court packing. There's a number of other things that are constitutional scholars have debated and I've looked to see what recommendations that commission might make. So Joe Biden becomes president, April 2021 rolls around, and he announces the formation of this commission made up of over 30 experts of diverse backgrounds and schools of thought. The White House says the commission is examining far more than just expanding the bench, listen to what press secretary Jen Psaki said earlier this week. So the topics they're examining include the origins of the reform debate, the courts role in the constitutional system, the length of service and turnover of the justices on the court, the membership and sides of the court and the court's case selection rules and practices. Sake has also said that the materials have not been submitted to The White House at all for edits and feedback. Now, yesterday, the commission released a draft report related to a number of these issues, including court packing. And notably, the group did not make any solid recommendations for change, and said that none of the arguments included in the report, quote, constitute a commission endorsement or rejection of any of them. But 44 pages of the report talked about the size and membership of the court and addressed the controversy over adding justices by so called court packing. When it came to court packing, the draft basically said that Congress has broad power to add or subtract the number of justices to the court, and the commission admits the question is a difficult one. And that many are divided on whether court expansion would be a good decision. Now, the report.

"Linked newsmax dot com 23 slash 23 that has the ability to go there and pre order the book. Sean. I'm curious to get a you know little additional inside your thoughts on this, So you have multiple trains of thought when it comes to President Biden. One is, you know, Rana McDaniels saying no. Biden take control of this thing. He's always been a radical. He's just kind of masqueraded as being a moderate up until recently. And then you have the train of thought that is, you know, Joe Biden reveals himself every day that he goes before the press, and he lets on what he was instructed to do and makes it as though he's really not even in charge of handling the press conference. So you know of those two trains of thought. Is Susan Rice. Really running the show? Or is is Joe Biden. Running the show, and it's just a boob doing it. Well, I think Ron claim his chief of staff for several Republicans on Capitol Hill, like your home prime minister claim. I think he's running the show, but make no mistake about it, and I bring this up in the book, Joe Biden said on the campaign trail. I will be the most progressive president ever. Now. The problem, Brian was that everybody dismissed him Republicans and Democrats, But that's not the Joe Biden. We know. Joe Biden understands that if he can become the most progressive president ever, he cement a legacy that Barack Obama only wished he could have. And so the idea that he's aloof and doesn't understand this is just silly, He said it he knows what he's doing. He appointed the people that are implementing this for you reason. Because he wants a legacy to go down in history as the guy that was the most woke president ever, and you can't under misunderstand that that people who think that he's just a cog in beginning moved around the board are misunderstanding the fact that he wants to cement a legacy in history. That he supported all the policies. I think that's really interesting and good insight now and speaking of his administration, and you know, some rather extreme moves. You've been blacklisted. What's this about? So 2019 President Trump appointed me to the board of the U. S. Naval Academy. For a three year term. Um, now President Biden sent a letter to all 11 of us people like myself. General H. R. McMaster, General Jack Keane, General Guy Swan telling us that they wanted our resignation last week or that we would be terminated. I sent back a letter yesterday. That's on my social media sites that I said no, uh, actually Supreme Court and other court cases. Hold that. This is a statutory board developed by Congress to provide oversight. I have a three year term, according to U S code. I've either resigned nor die. That's why I'm talking to you live. And and so therefore you have no authority to do this. This is not a presidential board, which is what a lot of the dum dums in Washington that don't understand the difference keeps saying he has a right to do this. I was a member of the White House Commission on Presidential fellows. I did submit my resignation for that on when I was asked to because the president does have a right to have his presidential board filled with people that he wants to. He doesn't have a right when it comes to the military academies that are felt that are set by statutory language by Congress. To end a term that President Trump appointed me to. So, um, he has asked people like myself who have served in the military for 22 years. Press secretary Jen Psaki then went out. Two on the White House weaving room from the podium, saying that we weren't qualified. She served on these military board, I guess, 22 years in the military, various awards and decorations and a degree from the Naval War College. Don't make me qualified to serve on the board of the Naval Academy. I guess. General H. R. McMaster, former national security adviser professor at West Point who was just given the West Point's highest alumni award Saturday, isn't qualified. Nor is general Jackie Norris. Lieutenant General Jack Guy Swan. But Jen Psaki, with all of her various military experience, clearly knows how important that is..

"Uh, They are, whether you're qualified to serve and whether you are aligned with the values of this administration. Alright, So is Sean. Basically Jen Psaki is saying that Sean Spicer is not qualified to serve on the board. Visitors for the United States Naval Academy Sean Spicer joins us Now, Of course, the shows Spicer and company at Newsmax and Boy that's uh you take it, Sean. In my opinion, that's a pretty low in despicable thing to do and say. Well, Good morning, Larry, and it's great to be inventory. I, uh I had a lot of respect when she's at the Pentagon. I just started in in my military career, and I loved how she handled. Bless you. How hard her service but I will tell you I've never In fact, I've always served in the military out of a sense of pride and honor. In fact, for most of my political career, I kept it off my resume. Just so that it never actually crossed into the political stream. Um, I will never question somebody's service to this country. People can serve this country in a variety of ways. I I've served this country with distinction and honor and had the privilege of serving next to some of the greatest and bravest individuals Last 22 years that I've won the uniform and I don't need people like Jen Psaki questioning my qualifications or my commitment to this country. I've graduated from the U. S Naval Work College I've done multiple tours across this country have served under five presidents of two parties. I I mean, I'll put my qualifications next to hers any day to serve on this board, but it wasn't just me. She it was. There was, you know, an Afghanistan veteran multiple graduates of West Point, including Dave Urban H. R. McMaster, three star general who served as the national security advisor to President Trump is about to receive The Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest award this September, 11th from West Point, and on September six, a few days before President Biden fired him from that same institution. It's an absolute disgrace and to have the White House press secretary sit there from the podium and talk about our qualifications and then zero pushback from anyone in that White House press corps. Tells you everything you need to know about this White house and this current press corps. Yeah. And Sean one. Thank you for your your service. I agree with you people can and his ongoing service by the way as a reservist in a variety of ways and thank you for putting on that uniform and going the extra mile. Well, I would push back hard on gentle nose, and I'm not familiar with all the presidential appointed board. But I was on the defense advisory board for a few years after leaving the Pentagon, and I disagree completely that people who serve on these boards should be like minded with the current administration. In my time, it was the exact opposite. And that you wanted those advise. You want the best and brightest who are outside who had gone out of government? Um and you wanted the best and brightest minds and you wanted people who would disagree with you Who would look at these issues from beside And Tory, you make a great point. I agree with that wholeheartedly. But there's two distinctions here that I think are important, especially in this listening audience in particular, would sketch it a lot because of how many people work in and out of government have been a political appointee. But there's two types of wars. I was also appointed to the White House Commission on Fellows. When the Biden administration came in and asked me for my resignation, I tendered it. The president has a right on presidential commissions to have the people he wants surgery. I respect that. I resigned when I was asked to do that, and I did so. Willingly because President Biden how to write to have these people on, However, this is not a presidential board. This is a congressional charter academy that it has Members appointed by the president, members appointed by the House in the Senate. We served three year terms were sworn into office. There is no cause. The other thing that people have to understand is that this administration shut down the commission's I think, unlawfully. I joined the lawsuit yesterday because of it. They had no at the beginning of the by administration. They called for a quote stand down and said the commission's could not be for so for one year. We have not been able to meet To discuss critical issues like funding how the academies are dealing with covid. Nor have we been able to discuss how they're injecting things like critical race theory into the curriculum. I believe that this was all a big ploy. Them to purge anybody that wanted to conduct proper oversight and to make sure that the academy's had people that were looking over them, a Taliban them accountable and ensuring that they weren't political politicized. This is the first time in history, not an administration in history that people have been purged from the academy boards for political purposes. When Obama came in, he had appointees that were on these boards. President Trump allowed them to stay as every president has In the past, These committees have been above politics forever, because the people who commit to going on them care about the institutions. Care about the services, the future officers that they're grooming and this administration, the administration that had a president stand on Inauguration Day and tell us that he wanted to be everybody's president that he wanted to embrace Trump voters as much as his own voters just politicized one of the last vestiges in Washington, D. C. That hadn't been politicized. And so for everyone out there in the media that wants to bemoan what Trump did. This is worse. This is literally politicizing our services are service academy. And President Biden. The only reason he's not getting any real pushback on this is because he has a complicit media and Sean if I made and I appreciate you, I love your passion..

"Tell us about a victory alliance and the work that your organization does. We were started in two thousand seventeen as a outgrowth of something that's called the white house commission for if he is and under president obama's white house commission several former commissioners when their terms ended and other commissioners who had resigned frankly in mass once donald trump got elected because there was a little bit of overlap between the commission and donald trump getting elected. They were sort of kahveci behind the scenes for about a year. And we help them. Start this organization as an outgrowth and that commission really focused on doing a lot of the things that we do in the victory alliance today which is we activate asian americans pacific islanders all around the country on issues of importance ensuring that their voices are heard in state legislatures and halls of congress to make sure that if owners bills are being proposed or executive orders i in administration that there's some pushback hi friends. It's nancy pelosi. It's always a privilege to speak with. Asian american and pacific islander community whose energy creativity diversity enriches our nation but it also recognized that people of color in our nation are under attack from our own president whether it's his insensitive remarks and handling the peaceful protest or statements on cova nine thousand nine targeting asian americans. Our nation needs of change. That is why. I'm pleased that shakur. And the api victories find have been leading the effort to ensure that our country has the right leadership. Your work of empowering and mobilising a api voters in the two thousand eighteen election was instrumental and it will be critical in the twenty twenty election in two thousand seventeen when we got formed. It was all pretty much. Playing defense was impossible to go on offense against the white house because pick your week and donald trump was going after one other section of our community so now with joe biden office we are working with the administration to help lift up and make more aware of those things that are extremely important to our community number one being representation for the first time in over twenty years. We don't have an asian american pacific islander as a cabinet secretary so we feel still hurt by that to a large degree because it really sets a bad precedent especially now knowing that we helped deliver this election and so it's something that we're gonna continue to work with the administration on. There are a whole host of things that going forward. We're going to continue doing and even break new ground. One of the things that we announced about a month ago was the launch of a new. Ap i think tank and for those folks who really don't know why that's so important. It's because at least in the dc landscape laws that are often proposed. That emanate as policy papers. That started think-tanks their noodled. They germinate they get cross fertilized and then they could grow win passed into congress. They could turn into laws and so generally speaking. There's no entity out there think-tank entity that really looks at proposed policies from an api lens. I there's a black equivalent. There are some semblances of that in the latino community but none in the api community so we launched that and in several weeks. We're going to announce our first board of advisors for the think tank and we're going to lift up frankly gaps in the research things that we don't know about the community and we really should know because if you're the fastest growing community in the country we really need to dive deeper into what really makes this community tick how to first generation vietnamese american steel on gun violence prevention versus a third generation vietnamese american. And how does language preference affect how they feel. So there's a whole bunch of things we don't know about the api community that this think tank is gonna help lift up. It's really incredible. And i really feel like racial justice and fight for racial justice cannot exclude the api community. Answer me this. How can people not only support the community but also support specifically the api victory alliance. There have been dozens and dozens of articles written since february with murders in atlanta about organizations that are solid organization so support your local. Api communities support your local api organizations. You can go to. Api victory alliance dot com and support us directly and one of the things that we're trying to do on a national skill is we've seen an amazing growth of organizations on the ground in pivotal battleground states. Since trump got elected there were two that existed in two thousand sixteen and now there are over a dozen in battleground states loan. And you should support. Api organizations everywhere not just battleground states but when you support them battleground states then you're providing perhaps a little bit of a mormon insurance policy against future despot like donald trump is. Should he run again to make sure that. We've got folks on the ground who are investing in communicating with api voters year round agnostic of an election. Just talking to them about local education issues or frankly the vicious anti voting laws that are being passed in georgia in arizona and in texas and florida in these local organizations. if they're properly funded and properly invested in will be able to fight back a little bit more because we'll be able to organize year round twenty four seven three sixty five. And so that's why that part is important and someone on the national level like the api victory alliance needs to ensure that all the local groups are coordinating best practices tactics on how to reach. Specific vietnamese. voters are korean. Voters are indian. Voters philippino chinese. And so that's why there needs to be an organization at the top nationally doing their thing ensuring that we've got access to folks in congress and then the folks on the local ground who are essentially doing the same thing talking.

"Wing radio, all television publications, they're all covering the impeachment trial. Looking ahead because it's the first time in history that a president has been looked at impeachment for the second time. It is a historic event. So I have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to that sort of stuff, and it doesn't make any sense to me what you just said, And we're not talking about Joe Biden and gun control. We're talking about the impeachment, which everyone else is talking about today. Quite frankly, s. Oh, that's those are some bizarre statements you just made. But anyway, we're opening up the phone line seven. Oh, 22575396 again, the number 2575396. We're not talking about Joe Biden. And gun control. Right now we're talking about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, now announcing that she's going to put together a 9 11 type commission on JD's got a little surprise coming up because I know he likes to say all these positive things about Rhonda Santa's, but I have the evidence and the facts to back up my opinions that Ron De Santis has done the exact same things that Governor Cuomo has done or very similar know of a very similar, OK, so I looked for you might want to wait on that one. Since you like to praise governor to Santis. 702 to 575396 is the number to call. Let's go to Jim. Jim is first up in the Vegas Take. What's up, Jim? What's going on, Jim? Good morning, gentlemen. How come you guys? Okay, So this is Brady and Jim? Get rid of them. J get rid of it. Get rid of him. Brady. Here's the deal, my friend. If you're gonna call up and used another name, you're off the air. Call up with your real name. We don't play games here. Seven. Oh, 22575396. Let's go to Bob. Bob is next on the Vegas Take Hi, Bob. What's going on, Bob? Um, I think that Nancy Pelosi is definitely on the right track with calling for investigation. What we need His death conspiracy theorists out off politics. I agree they can be on they can have their own soap box are not saying that they can't do what they what they Do But it doesn't belong in politics. I thank God that I feel a crane was kicked off the committee's I hope that she doesn't get re elected because of that. I hope she quit because of that. Actually, she said. She's a threat to that national security of the United States. But I agree with you what you just said, and let me just take it a step further and say it was conspiracy theories that led to what took place on January 6th. And that was That's what that's what this commission is going to investigate. But this is what I say. Seriously according to Find a second, Okay, hold on a sec objective. JD Changers, lot of sectors who gave that okay. So let me just finish my statement. JD. If I may Without being interrupted up. So, Bob, I wanted Tonto. Move on from that and put it to people this way, Bob, and for those people out there that do not think that Donald Trump. Incited this insurrection. I asked him a very simple question. Which is this If Donald Trump had conceded the election or if Donald Trump for 2.5 months, didn't say that the election was stolen, that he won in a landslide, and that Democrats cheated. Do you still think the January 6th insurrection would have happened now, Bob, I think they the obvious answer is no. Would you agree with that, Bob? Hurry with that, that also that be along less dead people. Coronavirus to see if he concentrated on that instead of on on the lies that he told then his office would have been out for two doom or or that so, yes, 100%. Bob, Let me ask you this. What? What has Joe Biden's administration done for two to stop covert 19 that Donald Trump's administration did not do. He's paying attention to the problem. Okay, It's ordering doses and he's getting commissions going. He's doing What is supposed to be done for the people are at least she's attempting to. If he's being blocked by other people. Then we can't help that Donald Trump's focus was on his massive cystic itself. Okay, not on the people of the same intruder. Yes. No, no, It's not 100% Sure he shut down the economy. Shut down! Yes, he did. Yes, he didn't. He agreed to lockdowns. He listened to what Anthony Fauci said Brian, so let me respond to what White House Commission So let me respond, ended social distancing and masked the fact his first statement was 15 days to stop the spread. Well, now we're at, I think, almost 340 days, Okay, since so any of this, So let me respond to your question. Sort of, like early early march. Roughly, Okay. Can I received this? There's not. There's nothing that I mean, Joe Biden, he said, so I can't answer within a week of him being president. He said that there is nothing that that could be done to stop the director of the next couple of months. But that's exactly what you're you're completely misquoting the tech context of it, And once again, you're lying. You're lying, he said. There's nothing we can do to stop the trajectory of this virus in the next few. No, you don't understand what he said. But but what he said on what is that? What he said on Twitter? What public appearances that he had a plan to stop it? And so far it looks to me. His plan is double masking. Which doesn't make any sense. But I can't say no one's gonna believe No one. No one's gonna where don't asking if why would depress what you're talking about? It doesn't work and then also actually sending a mask to every single person via mail. That is absolutely insane. Too much that cost Once again. We're off topic just against the bodies like that. Donald Trump. Ignored the virus. Donald Trump didn't make it to the caller made it stop and you're going on a five minute, Brandon? Yes, And then he developed the vaccine in 10 months And then you went on a 500 million And then you asked of those vials of being out in the first and then you add 1st 100. Then you asked the question of the call there comparing the coronavirus to to Joe Biden and Donald Trump. I will ask you for the third time if we could please remain on topic. But I will answer your question Which you didn't allow me to answer because you went on a five minute rant. Which is this? I'll tell you one thing. Joe Biden has not done he is not poor. Besides this virus, he has not attacked people for wearing masks. He is not gone in front of a camera and talked about his ratings. He has not talked about the possibility of injecting yourself with disinfectant. Joe Biden has not gotten in front of the camera and forgotten about empathy and forgotten about the close to 500,000 people that have died of this virus. Joe Biden has not compared the Corona virus to the flue. Joe Biden has not said We're gonna have 15 cases down to zero. Joe Biden didn't do an interview a few weeks ago, and then today flip flop on that interview and downplay the virus. Joe Biden has not done those things. Just for starters, seven. Oh, 22575396 is the number to call. Let's go to David. David is next on the Vegas Take. What's up, David? What's going on? David? I can't believe I'm on the air. This is great. Congratulations. What you know, I'm 65 years old. Okay? And I didn't. I didn't. I was never involved in anything politically. My whole life. I had a business at employees and all's I did was work that for it my whole life have everything grabs it out from under me. And I feel for Mr Trump. Since the day he was put in office. Since the first day. It appeared to me that Nancy Pelosi once the country what are you talking about? Nancy Pelosi does not run the country..

"James Gordon founded the Center for Mind Body Medicine in Washington, D C like Minnesota a quarter of a century ago under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. He was chairman of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine policy. He and his staff trained health professionals around the world on the concept of food as medicine. Hi, Dr Gordon. Thank you for joining us on healing quest. Great. Happy to be with you both again. This is a topic that we have had the pleasure of talking with you about over a period of years, actually, And that is the concept of food is medicine. We've we've been talking about this for 15 years. What's your sense? Now of how food is medicine concept is becoming accepted, hopefully, by clinicians and other health care providers around the country. Well, food is medicine, there that the idea that I know the words come from Hippocrates, the founder, the father of our western medicine, who said Let food be your medicine and medicine your food. And, of course, And the last several 100 years, almost totally for gotten what he had to say. So it's in the nature of a revival of that understanding that our that our training program is taking place. And that human beings all over the planet, or coming to understand the enormous therapeutic power of food. And for a long time in modern medicine, it was overshadowed. Because all of the education all of for medical students, all of the practice for physicians, all of the advertising everything was focused on Pharmacological in surgical interventions and virtually nothing on the use of food either to prevent illness or to treat illness. So we've had to Reverse a content with this whole narrow focus on these Intervention. So it's it's a matter of changing of mindset. It's working against economic interests that mass produced food that's not terribly good for health. It's been a big project. I think there is a growing public consciousness off the power all food to help prevent and treat all of us. What? What? What can we do about it? Well, I think the first thing we can do about it is we've got to keep putting out the message. We got evidence. This is what we're doing in every community that we work in, and we've got to give people the confidence. As well as some of the basic scientific information that they need to understand that they have the power to use food to make a difference in their own health. And I say they need confidence as well as information because too often physicians and the medical system say, Well, it's not going to really make any difference. Or let me give you this drug for the type two diabetes or for my hypertension without Really addressing the the demonstrated fact that people could make a great deal of difference in their own healthcare. We talk a lot here on healing quest about organics. And so we think that the case for organics is very solid. Although even you do get some pushback on that, But one thing we hear a lot about it. Okay From the just the average the average listener. Yeah, I kind of understand that the organics are better for me. But they cost more. How would you advise us to respond to that concern? Well, I would say first of all, Yes, you're right. I mean, this is this is a political problem as well as an individual problem. The issue is How do we make organic forming the basic way of forming as it has been up till the last 100 years or so? So that that's a big political and social shift? It really needs to happen with all kinds of incentives pushing us in that direction. There are some foods that it's okay to eat. If they're not organic. They don't have huge loads of pesticides and herbicides and chemicals. Other foods you should spend your organic food money on those foods on the dirty dozen. On the warms there that are very heavily laden with pesticides, herbicides, etcetera and use that as your guidelines and don't beat yourself up if you're not even organic alot of the time. What great advice. Thank you. By the way. The dirty doesn't that Dr Gordon mentioned refers to an analysis that the environmental working group issues every year, listing the produce that has the most pesticide residue on it. That'll be fruits like strawberries, apples, peaches and pears and vegetables like spinach, tomatoes, celery in potatoes. Now, on a positive note, the environmental working Group also releases a report every year on what it calls the clean 15. Those their fruits and veggies that are not organic, but are okay to buy if they've been conventionally grown on that list are fruits like pineapple mangoes in grape, fruit and veggies like avocados and cauliflower. The environmental working groups. Your L is e w g dot org's That's e w g dot argh! If you want to check out the current dirty dozen and clean 15 if you're just joining us, I'm Roy walking, Horst. And I'm Judy Brooks. And you're listening to healing Quest, which is brought to you by just thrive, help makers of the just drive probiotic that supports a healthy digestive and immune system. We're talking about the concept of food as medicine and green consciousness, and we we want to add one more voice to the conversation today. During the 20 years of our healing quest. Roy and I have been fortunate to me an interview many, many extraordinary people. Some of whom, like Deepak Chopra and menopause and any while Are very well known. But we've also met other scientists and healers who aren't well known to the general public, but who are equally extraordinary, and that's a case with Dr Nicholas Gonzalez. It's been five years now since his untimely passing And that's been a big loss for many people around the country, including US for 25.
