Fresh update on "el paso" discussed on Seattle's Morning News with Dave Ross
"Ross, I'm Erin Riddle. Oh, and joining us now is moderator of CBS is Face the Nation and Margaret President Trump now says he will step down. If the electoral college votes for president elect Joe Biden. So where does that leave us in this most unusual transition process. While the president is still keeping up the public relations front of not conceding the election, even though behind the scenes, he has complied with the transition. At this point, he personally had to sign off on that agreement to share. Intelligence reports for the president elect. That was not something that automatically happened with the general services ascertainment of the election results. So he's saying something publicly that he is different for what he's doing privately by him, referring to the Electoral College decision, he's inadvertently perhaps putting a date on the calendar. December. 14th is one they're supposed to meet. Tonto certify the election outcome and so that is, you know, constitutionally called for and that is part of the process that we go through with each election. We just don't normally end up really talking much about it because typically, the incumbent acknowledges Wouldn't the challenger beats him in both electoral and popular votes, and just to be clear? Does the president somehow have a legal path to overturning the election outcome? There's no viable legal pathway at this point. No, his lawyers have failed to substantiate any of the public claims they have made of widespread fraud or conspiracy, even in cases in states where in Pennsylvania, for example, there were Trump appointed judges who just said This is not the legitimate case to bring. You didn't Proof any of what you claimed here, so the pathways have really been closed. Okay. Then let's discuss the incoming administration President elect Biden rolled out his picks this week for national security. What did they tell us about his his vision for the country and how it differs very much so from the current president Well, the president elect says, when really tried to signal here that the foot forward will be diplomatic Hey, put into place of the six individuals he named four of them will still require Senate confirmation, so they're all but sure things and they are all veterans of the Obama administration or career officials like the nominee to be U. N. Ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield, who is one of the highest ranking foreign service officers has served In the state Department for decades. So these are not people who are new to the game. They're not the disruptors so to speak that President Trump really celebrated bringing into the establishment when he was elected four years ago. And for Joe Biden, you know, we haven't heard a lot of the specifics of his foreign policy yet other than this rejoining and embracing once again of diplomacy and multilateral institutions. We still don't know who his nominee to be. The defense secretary will be, and we're still waiting on his nominee to be the head of the CIA and, of course, the president elect expected to roll out those picks, possibly after the holiday weekend. We have any indication of who those pics might be? It's been widely reported that for the job of Treasury Secretary which puts you 15 line to the presidency, the Cabinet member before you would be secretary of state Tony Blinken, who was named last week for Treasury secretary. It's been widely reported that Former Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen, who was the first female Fed chief will soon be the first female Treasury secretary. If confirmed, We also have seen a number of names swirling for defense Secretary and CIA. I won't I won't name them here because we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. But they're also very familiar and former Obama era officials. Let's turn now to the pandemic. You'll be discussing the current situation this Sunday with White House corner virus response coordinator Dr Debra Berks and Margaret. It sounds like the medical community is in full agreement here that the country is in for some dark days ahead of us. It really is. I spoke to Dr Anthony Fauci last Sunday. Doctor Deborah Birds will join us this week and they are really they. They're exhausted. It is clear when you talk to them. They are warning. That we're seeing an exponential growth in the infection rate of covert 19 across the country. This is no longer just concentrated in regions. It's no longer just cities. This is in rural America. This is across The country and we are now at over 90,000 hospitalizations. So while we have seen tremendous leaps and bounds and really scientific miracles, in some ways, hats off to all the scientists here who have come up with therapeutics to treat patients Some of those advancements just may be overcome by sheer numbers of patients. And that's what we want to talk to. Dr Deborah Burkes about is the breaking point for certain systems. We know in El Paso, Texas, for example, where we will be speaking to the mayor this Sunday. They have brought in mobile morgues because of the sheer numbers of bodies, overwhelming funeral homes. I mean, we're once again at at a real crisis point, And that is why health officials late in the game pleaded with the public not to travel and not to go into homes this holiday season. So we want to talk about what the consequences of those family gatherings yesterday will be. And we may see that born out in the next 2 to 3 weeks, and of course, the president elect steps into all of this mess Congresses. Able to negotiate a relief bill. Still, unemployment benefits expire at the end of this year. For millions of Americans. Are we anywhere near reaching a federal aid package for them? That is a very good question. And it is something that actually the president elect pressed his Democratic colleagues to figure out before the new year before the new Congress when they met last week. But s O far there's no date on the calendar for agreement here, um, to be fair, lawmakers are away for the holiday. We'll see when they come back. We know there are a few must act items in some ways it given that there has to be a decision on how to fund the government by December. 11th we know by the end of December, some of those federal aid programs like for example, the moratorium on federal evictions. Will expire. Some relief for student loan payments will expire. So at a minimum, you may see some debate over renewing existing programs, but that bigger Package of aid that somewhere hoping for it's unclear if we will get there. Margaret Brennan, moderator of CBS's Face the Nation, Thank you for the time. Thank you ate 20 sales.
How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives
"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.

Fresh update on "el paso" discussed on Austin's Morning News
"O B. J. Patrick Osborne and Eric all the ready. We're talking before the break about San Antonio and Bear County taking kind of taking the route that El Paso County has been taking on, uh, issuing a Thanksgiving weekend curfew. So here's the way it's gonna look as of yesterday. Here, Here's Here's how it's working. Residents cannot gather outside of their homes from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. unless they're commuting to or from a business. Curfew ends on Monday this, according to the amended orders by San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Bear Kenny Judge Nelson Wolff. Restaurants have to close indoor and outdoor dining during the curfew hours. But curbside take out and drive through. Options can continue as they have already. Um Violation of the curfew is $1000 not just a blanket $1000 every single time you called out during the curfew of past 10 at 10 P.m. without good reason. Your $1000 fine. Ah, you're Mayor, Nierenberg says. Please listen to our public health experts. It's not worth the risk this holiday season. If you have to leave home where Mass keep a distance from others. I mean, that's typical. What we've heard from all all governments. But what do you think that? I mean? What do you think about a curfew? Are they effective? Do you support it? Is it ridiculous is an infringement upon your rights and liberties as an American. Look after 10 P.m. when she says her roommates are gone, It doesn't matter. Nothing. Nothing matters at at that point, but It said that we have to implement this thing. And I know we talked about it a little bit off the air, which I love the affair. Conversations, their justice, you know, if not better than some of the on air ones, usually better, but Um, you start getting into the hole. You know, you make it look like we're in this weird. We are almost in this weird, dystopian kind of situation, No doubt, but Yeah. Having a curfew at 10 P.m. is really People out of 10 P.m.. It's the same thing if somebody out of five PM if they're going to contract the disease, the virus didn't tell time. Very well. Yeah, it doesn't care. It might be woke, but it didn't read time very well. So it doesn't seem like it would really be effective. So I I don't know if it's more of just kind of a symbol of like we need toe. Make sure that cause people I'm sure there's I want to know how many people probably hosted Super spreader events. This this Thanksgiving. I know was it Wasn't a small number Well, and you know that it sent you to bring that up because there are some doctors who actually are are far more concerned about the Thanksgiving gatherings than they are today. You know where the Black Friday shoppers Either. They're going to be a lot of people out, undoubtedly, but you know, you mentioned that it's certainly I think the concern is that People who gathered yesterday in mass are the ones that are going toe end up spreading as you put it, the super spreader situation, But But whether or not a curfew would have curbed that. I just can't see. I mean, you know 9 59 PM curfews. I mean, the virus is still gonna spread in the same way to win a 10 pm you know? And $1000. Fine. You know, we've also heard a lot of a lot of government, especially here. The City Council talking about how you know they want to prevent people from getting locked into a cycle of poverty with these fives that they can't get out of. And well, I mean, doesn't this create the same kind of problem? If you're getting $1000.5? You got caught out in the curfew three times as three grand you owe and I work in radio. There's no way I could afford three grand. You know, So now I'm caught in this cycle of poverty. I may end up going to jail for it. I mean, you know, I just I'm not sure that this is the right avenue to be taken. I think it's just a last desperate act because of their numbers and how they've been. They're trying to do absolutely anything and I completely get that. But this isn't All you can do like this. This isn't the end all be all toe where you can just charge people $1000 if they get caught because Even if everybody met their curfew. It's already been done. Yeah, All the spreading has already been done. Absolutely 8, A.m. and at 5 p.m. where whatever Time of day no matter where you were, it's already been done. So whether or not I'm home by 10 P.m.. I don't know It's just another type, and I hate it because You're the classic libertarian time you were completely I get. You are the Ron Swanson. I don't want government anywhere in my sandwich anywhere doing anything inaccurate. That's inaccurate. Descriptor of me? Yes. And at some point, yeah, that there is some sort of the We need some sort of organization in order, obviously, but this is when they don't hit. The nail on the head. This is when you missed the mark entirely. And then you're just doing something to enforce things upon us that as of, of course, the most recent co coronavirus numbers I'm not really being updated because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but at last, the last number that we have from the state 12,423 new cases confirmed as of Yesterday s O that right there is part of the is part of the impetus behind San Antonio's, You know, curfew, and a lot of those cases, too, you know, are coming out of El Paso, where it's just a nightmare scenario for them. They're having a truck. A lot of the patients over here to Austin, which is You know, very likely could burden our hospital capacity as well. Staff is more concerned than the bed space at this point, but I understand where they're coming from. When you look at those numbers, and here we go. Wow, that's that's a ridiculous number of new cases. But I am not of the belief that a curfew is going to curve any of that, because, like you say, I mean people got together They've already spread it. And at the end of the day, I think a lot of people who like me, they just don't like to be told what to do by anybody. That's true. But you know, I wouldn't want the I don't think that the national government should or can really do anything about this. So it is up to the smaller government. It is up to El Paso. It is up to San Antonio specifically to try to control their rate, something with Austin and what we've done with a lot of the decreases. With business and everything like that. Um, it is it is, you know, helping. It's starting to help they go. Once we open back up. It did pick up a little bit. So it is. It is on your your city 100%. So on that note, Do you think the state should get out of the way? Because you know, there are a lot of limitations that the Austin City Council or any other counsel or county government, for that matter. Has on them because you've got the state saying what? You can't do this. You can't shut everything down and Do you think that the state should get out of the way and just say and leave it up to individual counties in this circumstance, knowing our state and our state leaders, in my opinion, yes, and understanding what they think of the whole situation. Yeah, I think that there are a lot of people who might otherwise advocate for smaller government who I think at this point I have decided that because it's It's not. Let's not pretend that this coronavirus situation hasn't become highly partisan. It certainly has. You have let me not very often you have Democrats thinking one way and Republicans seeking another way, and I feel like ah lot of people who might otherwise Republicans especially who might otherwise really advocate for small government or now. Really willing to default to the state government here and saying Oh, no, we want you to prevent Steve Adler from from locking us down in Austin. You prevent a Travis County or William's County or whatever. But there's certainly an argument to be made there for relinquishing some of that control to the local governments, because, you know, no. No region is the same necessarily know, you know, at the end of it all. We'd like to hear from you on this to give to call 51283605 90 Do you fall in the category of those who think a cat A curfew is warrior warranted? Or is it ridiculous? And yet another infringement upon American American liberties 512836. 05 90. It's black Friday. You know, as we mentioned there to body concern that there may be more spread, But there's certainly plenty of options today. Online. They people of companies of relief spread out their black Friday's deals throughout the week and beyond. Gonna be doing any big shopping I want to, But since everything is going to be online pretty much I mean, the servers are going to be the equivalent of all the people rushing into the store. So it I was in line trying to get a you know, PS five an Xbox one, and it was it was It was just insanely insanely hard..

Dr. Umair Shah Reflects On Time As Houston's Harris County Health Authority, Ahead Of New Washington State Role
"Harris county public health executive director. Dr shawn ounce tuesday. He's leaving the department. He's led since twenty thirteen to become washington state's new secretary of health. He joins us now. Dr shock congrats on the new gig. Welcome back to the show. Crag it's as you can imagine but Thanks for having me and thanks for the congratulations. Why have you decided to take on this new challenge in the state of washington. Well it's You know let me. Let me just say Again with mentioned about the sweet piece is that there's just so much that we have accomplished here and and so many incredible incredible staff members Department leadership and and just across the community cross county government but across the community. That have just done. Just such an amazing job It is really hard to leave. But i will tell you that what you know it. Opportunities are when they come before you and i was asked by governor ins lease Administration to join as the secretary of health. And it's an incredible privilege and honor to be asked for that And certainly i'm hopeful to be able to take that experience from here and what i've learned and been able to do here in harris county to state level and some excited about that. Would you characterize the challenges that washington state is facing as roughly the same as what we're facing here when it comes to the pandemic. Oh craig here's the thing so it it. We're all facing the same way. So i in fact i got this question yesterday from a reporter in in seattle and it was a very Very much a question. That i thought was interesting and it was about well. You know the state is big and it's diverse and you know it's got red and blue areas and it's got urban areas and it's got suburban areas and scott rural areas and not. Everybody has agreed on how we should fight the pandemic So what what are your thoughts about coming into that. And i thought that kind of sounds like harris county So you know it's it's seven point six million people it's it's larger than obviously harris county and in population and certainly size. But i will tell you that it. It is also true that throughout this pandemic what we are facing here in our community is similar to what we're facing across texas across the country and across the globe now everything is manifesting differently. So fortunately we although we've been seeing increases and yes. These are concerning trends here within our region. We're not seeing that same level that you've seen in el paso or other parts of texas other parts of the country now again we can't let our our eyes off the the the ball here because very quickly as you talked over the month things can change and when they change. They changed quickly. And so we've got to do everything we can to prevent it from happening in the first place. And that's why we've got a strategic opportunity right before the holidays to get things Right and for community to heed the call to to really change the behaviors that were having over the holidays. And that's going to really drive. You know what's going to happen for us in the next chapter for you know for our community. What's next for harris county health leadership. Well you know. Obviously county government is going to make a decision and You know. I'm leaving an incredibly strong Leadership team behind In fact you can see it on twitter. I tweeted it out recently and it's strong. It's experienced its diverse Dedicated passionate and that's what community wants from its public health leadership and so. I'm just incredibly proud of that team. Now it's never about the me. It's always about the we when when we do activities or we take on activities and so craig what i would say is that while i may be not here and cheering this community on from a distance that work continues and that team continues and they are here and they're ready but ultimately it's going to be county government and commissioner's court. Who's going to decide what they're going to do after i leave my last day. Here's december eighteenth What they're going to do after that in the interim period and certainly beyond that But i will tell you that we've got a great team and i'm hopeful that the community remembers the incredible work that we've done you know local health department of the year National accreditation Microsoft research Picking us as the only community in the country. The only health department the country for its project premonition We've you know we were ranked number two recently and peer rankings by seven hundred and forty local health departments across the country for who. They look to initiatives. There's a lot of incredible work that we've done and craig one that i know you're I've talked about this before. Related to animals When i started at the at the department as the director are leave alive rate animals. That left our shelter. Alive was was about fifteen percent. This is twenty twelve twenty thirteen. It is now ninety eight percent. We have actually changed the narrative. These are things that we have to be proud of as a community and as a as the government. I just really want to just say that. We can't do it alone. In this pandemic has shown this you know obviously harvey and katrina rita i e carvey all these hurricanes and tropical storms but also you know h one n one ebola zico now covid nineteen. We have a lot of work that continues. There's never a good time to leave. But i'm very proud of our department and our team and i'm excited about the fact that they're going to continue that that work into the future. What parting advice. Can you offer to huston. Ian the department and its initiatives not just about cove in the current surge in cases about the region's health and general. Well a two things. One is that look cova. Nineteen is a. It's a crisis it's pandemic it is. Let's not let's not let our focus off of that so What i've been calling twenty twentieth the first half of football game. It's the first half the holidays coming up here. We're going to be at halftime. Usually people take a charge Recharge during halftime they changed strategy. They think about what's up ahead. We know twenty twenty one's gonna be vaccines vaccines vaccines and certainly We've got to be readying ourselves for the second half so halftime so critical. So if you don't have to have thanksgiving holidays with a lot of people don't and fact Make him very small holidays. a few people your social bubble your immediate people in your family Don't travel do those kinds of things if you're gonna do those things.

Not just health care delivery about prevention about the investment in public health systems. The reason that we have got into some of this mess across the country is we have not appreciated the value of public health and prevention. And so we wait for people to get sick and then we try to do things. We wait for people to get injured and we try to do things. Let's invest upfront.

This total includes the twenty three people who were killed in the el paso mass shooting last august. The suspect patrick crusius is facing federal. Hate crime charges overall. There were seven thousand three hundred and fourteen hate-crimes with eight thousand five hundred fifty two victims reported in two thousand nineteen by law enforcement agencies. Who sent data to the fbi. There was a two point seven percent increase from two thousand eighteen and a reversal in what had been three years worth of reported hate crime. Incidence declining the fbi's report is another reminder that we have much work to do to address hate in america southern poverty law center or espy elsie president and ceo. Margaret wang said in a statement each of these incidents represents the targeting of an individual or community for violence or vandalism because of their identity or personal characteristics more than half of the offenders in the crimes cited targeted individuals because of bias against their race.

Meanwhile with the total hate crimes reported dropping from one thousand nine hundred forty three to one thousand nine hundred and thirty but while the fbi's data represents the most detailed study on hate crimes in the us advocates believe it still falls short of capturing the true extent of hate crimes rather hate crimes.

As COVID-19 Cases Soar, El Paso Convention Center Becomes Hospital
"Everything is bigger in Texas, and that now includes the pandemic. It's the first state in the U. S to have more than one million confirmed coronavirus cases. Among other places. El Paso is in crisis intensive care units across El Paso County. We're reaching capacity more than two weeks ago, Things have grown so much worse that the city has turned its convention center into a field hospital. Remember when things were that bad in New York in the spring will cases across the U. S R lot worse now than they were then Mallory Falk of our member station. K E R A is in El Paso. Good morning to you. Good morning. As best you can tell what makes Texas different from other states. Well. Texas doesn't have tight coronavirus restrictions and place like in some other states. The governor issued a statewide executive order on Cove it and it doesn't allow individual communities to implement their own restrictions. Texas very much is a place that lets people do what they want to do. And I should also point out Texas has a high rate of residents who are uninsured or live far away from hospitals and medical care. So there are many people here who have the type of untreated underlying conditions that mean they'll get sicker if they get Cove it and that's part of the problem, too. So Texas is taking a sort of freedom first approach to the pandemic, but what is being done to try to limit the spread? Well, it is all mired in politics here, and Al Paso County, the judge who's the top elected official. Last month, he ordered a temporary shutdown of nonessential businesses. But several restaurant owners and the state attorney general sued. And on Friday, a court sided with them and blocked the order, saying cities and counties can impose tighter restrictions than what the governor allows. And I should mention geography to El Paso is right on the border with New Mexico and the governor there just implemented a two week statewide shut down something that hasn't been done here and I'll pass. So is right on the border with water is Mexico and in that city has a nightly curfew there tighter restrictions in place. Then an El Paso. And so there's this delicate balance because people are moving across various borders with different rules and restrictions. You know, I'm remembering that just a couple of weeks ago we checked in on El Paso and found the hospitals filling up a couple weeks ago. And now Allison Aubrey is telling us that things are infinitely worse than just a couple of weeks ago. What's that mean for the hospitals? Yeah, Hospitals are at capacity. There 10 Mobile morgues here that are now needed because so many people are dying so quickly that the regular Margus full and in fact, some inmates are now being paid $2 an hour to help move the overflow of bodies at the medical examiner's office Funeral home's air overwhelmed I spoke to a funeral director right to convert one of his chapels into a storage cooler. Um and nurses have been speaking out publicly pleading with people to stay at home to suspend family gatherings. For now on, they've also been pleading with state officials to let El Paso leaders respond to the crisis and implement that. Shut down. Okay, let me stop you there if I can. Mallory fuck of member Station Ktrh in El Paso, Texas, Thanks for the update. Thank you.

North Dakota lets healthcare workers with COVID-19 stay on job as record surge strains hospitals
"Governor of north dakota just recently announced that healthcare workers infected with covid nineteen who are not showing symptoms would be allowed to continue caring for covid patients places like hospitals and nursing homes. It's gotten so bad that these are the types of conversations that governors in hospitals are forced to have now. But do you think that it's a good way to deal with the staffing shortages. That that your industry is facing. I think the public needs to understand that we started from behind when it came to staffy so no. It isn't proper to be talking about using health care workers nurses or others. That are a sabbatical test positive. Because they are one of the worst spreaders. That's one of the things that makes this virus so unique and if you have it you can spread it so. It's highly irresponsible for an employer to ask that owners. And it was highly irresponsible for the cdc to peop- downgrading its recommendations such as that one will you do make a good point. The cdc has said this would be an acceptable alternative in the face of staffing shortages. But there may be changed coming. And i know that you're pleased in your group is pleased that president elect joe biden is prioritizing the pandemic already as you know. He's announced a task force to address the issue even before he gets to the white house. Well he in kremlin harris appear to be taking it very seriously on just putting the group together of saying rational. Individuals with knowledge is helpful. People who believe in science Saying that we will have a coordinated response is something we've needed since we started talking about it in january before anybody took it seriously. We need somebody responsible that we can rely on. So we're very happy about that. We will have to continue to hold on their feet to the fire and we will continue to push for measures that this pandemic has shown us this country needs and one of them is medicare for all. I hear ya. Joe biden isn't going be in the white house until january so that's a couple of months off. What's what's the danger lurking in that gap of time. Well you know. It's very hard to say when someone is ill as this. President is scott mr trump. It's hard to say what they're going to do next where we're hoping of course that there are still some people there who can keep an eye Audience but so far. He appears to wash his hands of the virus. Any talk about it any plans for it. It's again irresponsible. It's quite repulsive to think that the president of the country doesn't care whether we live or die. I think joe biden can even though he's not president he's the president elect. He can get through to people who might be able to get things in place so that we can start on day. One when he is in scottsd- that's my hope. And you know this is a heavy time. No doubt about it before. I let you go just briefly. How are you doing you okay. So you're nurses are stressed just like other healthcare workers and well. Let's be frank. Even people in the grocery stores other frontline workers in meat packing plants were all very stressed. We're used to death. We're not used to seeing so much on a daily basis and when bodies start piling up in morgues again as they are in el paso it eats at your heart and you have to kind of push that aside and do your job or the patients that you have in the public are in even more danger. So we'll keep our spirits up but we are telling the public you need to listen to us. Into the scientists you really do unique tabasco masking saves lives staying apart staves lives so.

Is you know what i'm saying like a way to stop. Yeah you just fall. How do you come down you. You just fall probably operated like elk. Can you get your ass on them. Down can offer realistic helicopter without propellers. I don't know how to make. I think that's how it goes up up. They they like. There's an air propelled thing at the bottom of it. It's not really so is in case. There's something like i guess knows planes that are able to kind of take off like like go yeah. They hover very high tech yeah those are very obvious and by the time they finish this year and roll it out to market. Get it'll be ready to go straight straight. I'm good it was lower to the ground. Maybe you can keep it right. You'll have to five the five feet wherever i won't fall and break my neck and this is flying number eight no but if you do forty five miles an hour at five feet high and you stumble or some shit. You're going to get hurt on saying i won't but i mean i'll be less hurt she now. I'm not saying i will still still do it at that. No i don't i don't even draw fans though right. You're not going to match the thing out. Let me i. I look at that what you spot. I'm not saying that i'm just saying like okay all right so we'll test it out like maybe five ten miles is by our something like that. Yeah sure but like i'm not i'm not going that fast so net thing now. You know what i wanna. Do it 'cause. How do i even catch myself because it's tied to. The dean. Come on man apparently was not gonna do anything oh yes for thirty forty fifty pairs. It's not gonna do nothing for house.

If i was his age i probably would do some. You know what i'm saying. I'm saying i wouldn't even call dumb like i dumps it. When i was a kid we wound it all kind of dumps it that i wouldn't do today a day of course yeah now as a grown as man with responsibilities. I would not ever do any shit like that.

I think it's extremely but at the same as modern flies hover board bro well they make they may one of those too yeah. They do a video tony out. It's actually pretty yeah. I think that's pretty oh no not unless it was floating over some real soft spoken over like grass like them ball pits i would do but how the how different is it than the reason why i said that's different is because it's not to outside of a skateboard so you just say well. You can get hurt on skateboards the same way you can get hurt on a hover board and this is what i'm saying. That's different what we just saw so. That's what i'm saying i i 'cause. I wouldn't even really own escape war. Today's time anyway bushmeat is when i was a kid and i definitely bust my ass now so i would still be reluctant. Get on a on a hover board the same way. I'm reluctant to get on escape on a skateboard four singles on board tony start so we're gonna. Let's do this talk. Tony hawk net tony start hover board that thing we frankie flobert work to help us differentiate now the differences if you see his hover board. It doesn't go that high so if he falls it just like rossa. You're is hurting yourself as far as like. You're on a skateboard. That's different than getting your dumb ass xactly on one of them shift that fly fucking forty five feet in the air right. That's that's all. I'm saying again and when you said hover thought that thing. I just thought it might <hes> yeah i i. I may try to but i would try the same way. I may try skateboard skateboard in today's. Tom hubbard because i think it would be. I used to skate so i kinda might still have that kind of balance a little bit. I know i don't i don't know i don't hail no anyway anyway. I think it's tight all right y'all here <hes> please don't do it. You know that'll the film it. You can make a movie out of it. We'll go viral. I bet you that yeah but you know if you did that. Sit that they have an ocean uh-huh so yeah it is an o._c. Is like the the water proposed. Look like that. I would do that. I would love to see i. I was just like that is this is this little water tank swam. I can go along too attached you <music> but it's still the same bless your arizona yeah but but it but it's over water like it'll you say it hurts less if you really truly want to do that. They already have something similar to that over water. I would do that so we're so like when it comes to roz at like six plants. I wish your limit. What type of roz do you guys. Go on. I'll get anything at a at a <music> at a museum in part because it's supposedly contained and i can and it can't fall or anything like that. People die every day. Do they die every day on joyce. He is her pop fairs if you did you see the slingshot thing i was on a that. Was that a real slingshot. Did she was on he'd be passing out on aw video. Yes we just get on something like that. It was impinging for tennessee and there was this part of one so they have a strip and they have a bunch of cars and shit like that. Is that the one that'd be passing out on you know so it is one that people pass. John and i don't know if that's the one on. I was wondering if that were to win. It seemed like they were shorter. Yeah short about didn't feel sure okay tapie. It was the same thing at the scene. People pass out on it. I don't think i would because i think the kid the kid definitely pass down this to me. Yeah yeah so yeah i wouldn't. I just for that very reason like i would just wouldn't because i'm saying hourly seen people pass out on it. I don't wanna i don't wanna do i wanna have fun. I don't wanna wanna fucking parents out passing out and it was a thrill. I pass out how how much the thrill is it. Then as you dude yourself around the rest of the day would do all in your pants. I wrote a slingshot but you might. That's the thing i haven't to this to this. I'm forty three and i haven't yet but you only voted once. I made shit. When i'm eighty something you might dow you might shit but he didn't tell us. He's beware younger. Would you rather have you seen it before now. So what so what is it so so it's like it's the slingshot whatever you can <hes> human slingshot. Each foster never seen that before. I i have a plan. I know what it is. Yeah i see people 'cause like you'd literally go there and come back down and people tur- yeah now hell no. I'm good so i've been dad so you know that's kind of. I guess i brought it up to say kind of difference so i'm willing to get stuff like that. It's only instagram. You guys go see it. How will we don't just say different. Saying is is my my risk. Factor is a little bit higher so i would definitely try flop flop war because because because of the technology aspect of it and i just it just seemed like it would be stream look look. What a be just sent over. Would you do if i had the right safety precautions in place. We gotta move on yeah. I just want him to see that. You're gonna see me team narino. Would i want to watch this. We gotta go on. We gotta move on <music> number fifty seven seconds. You know you're gonna watch it and that's going to be oh ass who already have it. You can actually go to right now. It's gonna be carrying record but if you look further they show him flow note like that that the epic fail is funny to begin but they show him actually about yeah yeah. I would do this off the water joint. I would do the water well. It's not as easy as as it may seem no of course not you have to control water like propelling you up next. This ain't that big of a deal. It looked like uh but you gotta see the videos where people actually like p._o._v. perspective. I know bish though but would you you would do that. I don't know maybe i didn't think it was the other ones that actually go real high and shit. That's what i'm saying and i've been on those. I would get on those two so so you you didn't get on that one. I don't know what you're talking about. You said the ones that go higher because the one you always seem like he went there and i so i don't have. I don't know what talking about to compare it. That's what i'm saying okay so it probably is one that go higher but i would get on it still. If i gotta get another one too you know so coat anyway you guys hear about the guy fired over to pop white guy cicis zero wa guy from the midwest who used to send out a to pot lyrics inspirational quotes he worked <hes> for the department of human services in iowa and <hes> he thinks that he was fired or forced to resign in june <hes> because a debuted prior he sent an email to more than four thousand the agency employees that include the inspirational quote from two parts and <hes> you know he's a big tom fan and he would <hes> <hes> regularly hold <hes> to friday's in his office where he will play the raptors music and he said <hes> he was a lawyer. He likes to break stereotypes about <hes> people who listen to rap. His name was <hes> jerry. Sullivan is what he looks like. He's the white white ah food like colonel like that little do with no legs. I was on <hes> king of the hill days they <hes> was it patent or something. I forget the name but he looks like the guy that had no green light jeb bush or somebody name. What what was the name what's his name does ask him to <hes> yeah man so he got fired for what exactly sending out to pot lyrics or inspirational quote. What was the lyrics to say. He was playing music though he did. He have to pop fridays. Yes and this article is from n._p._r. By the way <hes> it doesn't say what quote he sent down here. I got it right here this. The one piece is strictly from a negative boy so so you and i'll poses on on this ground but basically the email was like just let people know that we know sunday is father's day but that it was also to park's birthday and that he will be forty eight when he if he was still alive so he will be celebrating both days and that <hes> he hoped everybody else enjoy the day to take the time to enjoy his song and then he's put this inspirational quote in their pay. No mind to those who talk behind your back. It simply means that you are two steps it and.
"el paso" Discussed on Is The Mic Still On
"Trump. You can't really deny that. He is shifting things in a certain direction. The person that killed those innocent people in el paso very plainly said he was gunning for hispanics and i can't think that we saw much of this before trump and for the for the reason things that trump has said on twitter that were fucking racist shit how you guys want to spin it. What trump up was saying was fucking racist. I'd really like to know. How do you still support him. If you yourself claim to not be racist or how do you continue to support support. A president that is saying go back to your country or is clearly villain ising a certain type type of person that is now being murdered. Do you support that trump supporters that claim to not be racist like explain this to me and i'm not trying to attack anyone. I'm trying to understand. I'm really trying to understand how you can say. You're not racist that you support all people that america land of the free blah blah blah but you're supporting a president president that is making people not actions because you can say who's cou he really fine fine but you're still bill nizing a a certain type of person and you don't seem to care like how do you how do you wake up every day. I'm cool with that. I think and what i've seen anyways from you know a lot of like right wing extremist premiss and things like that is they try they like go through crazy ass loops to try to it's like mental gymnastics to try to <music> separate what they believe in because this is the thing and i think this applies to like all people who are racist are all people who are extremist as spars being on the right. I think think they think like i would personally feel bad. If i felt attached are connected to the evil quote unquote that's going on in this corner and so i'm going to try and take my ideologies and separate it as much as i can from what it is. They're doing over here so for example those people who did get shot or killed. They're probably going to be like oh. That's sad thoughts and prayers at the same time you know we should just try to come into the country legally and then like you can spew all these facts to them and say hey we'll. Oh this person was born here. Well i mean you couldn't tell really enemies at the same time. Yeah like don't work you gotta. You gotta do better than that. Yeah this point. People people are dying at this point. People are literally and it's literally like ordered. Yeah and y'all are not doing shit. Y'all still supporting this president. That's not doing shit. It's because it doesn't apply to them but he keeps on repeating the same talking rallies and everything yours you know and then he lies about it and it's just crazy easy to meet you. Still have people are like no. I'm not only non-racist. I'm anti-racists but i voted for trump because now you can't you see this man. That's cool man. I think some of those people actually don't care. I don't care nine. They shouldn't be in our country anyway i want. I want to hear from okay so i want to hear from the other ones. Does that say that they do care that they're not raised at the one that racism wrong. I want to hear from them. I how are you still saying that. You're gonna fucking vote for this guy again. In twenty twenty deep down they can say it all they want to but i think deep down share yeah the saints intimate as those people that are home like i don't care. They shouldn't be over here anyway. They just keep it needs more proves ryan. That's all i'm saying is super. I said yeah the manifesto that you know he he posted online. <hes> you know detailed a plan to separate rate americans <unk> territories by race <hes> spoke of hispanic invasion of texas a warrant that white people were being replaced by foreigners foreigners. The man drove ten hours to go to that walmart from allen texas <hes> to shoot <hes> you know and kill those people you know it real quick before you move on the invasion part y'all go to twitter and type in donald trump's twitter name and then put invasion next to it and see how many times himself talks about these quote unquote invasions and then once again explain how you support this motherfucker ryan yeah. They're currently on fox news talking about how video games and mental illness are the problems of course. That's gonna always be disbanded. Yep they way. I'll know of any video game that was <music> supporting like right typically targeting hispanics. Is there a game. I don't know about the closest. One is like grand theft auto. I would say but not not really she. You still targeting anybody and everybody saying like they can keep running this game but come on bro. I'm just sick of it. I'm sorry i just had to bring it up because that's fucking ridiculous. I mean we didn't even fucking touch on the two other. Shootings happened within a nine hour span. Did you see how the <hes> handcuff buddy and no paso. I feel as if we need to bring back crucifixion <unk> personally. I just feel like these mass. Shooters needs to be making made it an example of that's not gonna change anything like that's just like saying. Let's put him on <hes> electric chair because most of the time in the dying in a way we see it in front of a woman something it very nice very nicely king yeah yeah y'all man. That's the guy off friendly oh here. He shot ninety motherfuckers. You know all right. Thank choke hold on him. How many we're we're we're winning twenty twenty six so <hes> so shop shop for twenty years and this cook the numbers could change yeah but <hes> at least when we were so y'all not seen it also saw the video footage of him walking in with the with the earmuffs on and the actual <hes> rifle into the walmart cameras and the only thing i saw i was in a barbershop in i saw people like kind of running frantically whatever but as that that was it. That's all i needed to know. I it's crazy <hes> that you can't even go to a walmart or a movie theater or church search or any of these places that you just do normal stuff. You not let me go get some toilet paper today. 'cause i gotta shitty booty. You know say you're gonna august shot up like i'm just saying wow. I'm just saying hey prefers. I'm just saying there is just so crazy man <hes> that you literally like like the safest places your home fucking just order everything on amazon yeah i. I'm hey exactly you know what i'm saying a just like <hes> who i wanna say nifty said stay dangerous. My nigga look people own guns on a gun. Protect your home owner going to protect yourself because how or why g because this man like look you can't even go to walmart dog is crazy like we're just being targeted that <hes> it does not gonna help that. What i'm saying is is being able to protect yourself like i'm again years ago <hes> i. I've never owned a gun. Somebody tries a break in and i felt the most helpless vote and i was so happy that we had a gun in the home to protect us in the home but i'm saying that's a that's a that's another conservative talking point <hes>. They think that everyone should be armed and that'll fix everything. I know yeah yeah yeah yeah but that that's the statement that you made <hes> we'll twist that and of course course mike you owning a gun like one person walking into that walmart with a gun without do was shooting all those people <hes>. How do we know that that would have helped anything. What well here's the thing you you're one hundred percent right and i'm not saying that owning a firearm is the end all be all sure what i am saying. Is that if you are caught in that situation you much. Let's rather have that and then not have it. That's the only point. I'm trying to make however you decide to take that and run with it by all means. Take around with it but all i'm saying is is that you much rather have something to defend yourself the not to have it in that moment and i'm not saying that somebody had it that this. This person wanted shot the twenty people. You know what i'm saying. Maybe only shot to people. I don't know we don't know those are big variables. I just think that it's crazy that at this point that we're at it's almost like in how people say keys wallet phone. It's like keys while phone gun like that's crazy that that's what the new you just gonna put your gun or you'll keychain like just. It'd be like that's insane. That's just like the normal let me go out with this is just a weird bandai like you're not even discussing the actual problem well and that's that's my issue with the issue stems from you have a leader right now that is creating villains out of people litter and and everybody arming themselves in my opinion is just gonna make shit worse because then you have to make sure everybody is trained and yeah if you're in that situation who's to know what you're gonna gonna do right. You hear somebody popping off. You might say oh shit and you start popping up right. You're not trained. Could you imagine a walmart full of two hundred people just popping up every day like the wild wild west man confirmed actual issued. I agree with you one hundred 'cause i still need to get a gun from my house same but i'm not really with just i arm and my fucking walmart with the two lines they be having open. Oh yeah you just two baskets full. Hula gross rewrote. Yes nama fuck. You gotta have is live. Data is just updated. It was in the dayton bar shooting. There was ten people killed and twenty seven injured at the chicago one the dayton dayton and then i guess the chicago one may be seven people were injured but i don't know if there were any pronounced dead. Gotta do something y'all know if if if they do ran into walmart and they start shooting back. I don't know he might have talked taylor. Ran or the shooting back might have some other people or you're never mind it. Don't even matter which just move on well real quick. I want to highlight <hes> glynn oakley that went in and say says those kids he actually had a gun he had a gun permit and he was walking out and you know he happened to see the kids scared and crying and looking for their parents so he got his got started running through to to save the kids. I have a question wasn't that i'd like a an a mall which one the one that you're the first one no no. He said something about being a footlocker or something like that. Yeah the the one the walmart one was walmart shopping center so there was a footlocker. how the set up was. I just heard that there was one with like a mall military guy that was given the interview on television. He went to a foot locker so i don't know how that works either. I was like i don't know who is in i wasn't i don't think that's the same guy i think. This is the different person that kim's talk this. This is this is it was a fort bliss. Show soldier you know private first class glenn an oakley junior an automated logistical specialist assigned to the final four composites composites supply company stationed at fort bliss <hes> he was <hes> a customer at this yellow vista mall el paso when the gunman opened fire and so here's what he had to say about.

"Off. ready for the buck korea podcast and getting that <hes> so together there was was one gentleman i already know me. I do not remember that gentleman's name however him and his cousin were detained in texas around the border and and <hes> this gentleman was born in america american citizen had his driver's license social security card and his birth certificate one here and he they were driving and artifically because he was an american that that doesn't speak really good english he is of mexican descent but born here and <hes> one one of the border patrols they they stopped him and his cousin and a couple of other people didn't have papers but he did. They had him detained over ninety days. I'm and he lost over thirty five pounds lobbying in there because you know he the dude was saying that there were people that were sick in there. They don't let us the restroom. They barely feed you. People like like you really don't even have a place to sleep <hes> so he was saying he was seriously inhumane and the like you know everything. You're talking about despair bear. Like what do we do like br. I had all my documentation on me just because i don't speak english does not make me an american. I have proved and i think that that's the point that it's getting to where you can clearly see the <hes> the point that they're trying to make you know it's kinda like they set up all these barriers ears and it's very clear that they don't give a shit if about immigration really it's kinda like 'cause if that was the case then why do swedish. Do you know what i'm saying like. Nobody's checking swedish papers like that. Nobody's detaining people like of that so it's kinda like it's very obvious that it goes beyond <hes> you know just immigration status and i i know a lot of people who have been been detained with you know being american and everything so it's very clear that they don't give a fuck and they're just trying to. I mean i don't know it. Just i don't know i you can clearly see where it's going. You know what i'm saying like and the further it gets like black. People are not too far behind from that shit. You know what i'm saying like. I dunno found the list. <hes> i'll give you a couple of names. We'll need to move on <hes>. There's the nichols house. There's a networks coop. There's the i._r._c. Which is the place. I took my stuff to and the lady at the desk was like yeah. We need everything you can get. <hes> who was that an actual detention center or was it replaces that will help <hes> not only <hes> imigrants quote unquote. They also help refugees that are here okay <hes> so they help they pretty much across the board but no these are not detention centers. I don't think we we have any detention centers in atlanta okay. I was just about to ask that <hes> then there's also <hes> where's the one that don sent <hes> shop the clarkston okay so yeah you can. You can google these places but that's just a short list of water. Close can call it just yeah. They'll say on their a website what they're looking for specifically now but you can call them and just say hey. I wanna help. What can i bring yeah. They'll tell you yeah 'cause. I don't know and the last thing that i have to say about it. I know that this is. I don't know this might be kinda wack and marginal ruin it for for anyone if you haven't seen it yet but i know that you know the new season of orange is the new black air. It's just covering the topic of ice.

"I'm sorry go ahead. No is simply this. I think el paso has shattered the debate that we've had for two years as well as the myth that donald trump may not be a racist white nationalist i think at this point that's been pretty cleared up aw and marie to that point when donald trump makes this trip today to el paso if he was ever going to make any kind kind of effort to make people think that he was not a white racist and did not actively hate the both the region that he was visiting and the people who live there this was the day to make that clear he didn't didn't even attempt a word in that direction lauren's because the people here you know people are not stupid a we have heard since july twenty fifteen this man saying this. It's about us. I mean here. I'm not speaking as a journalist. I'm speaking as a mexican woman as an immigrant he he's attacked us over and over again. People here are not done they. It's not going to change because he suddenly rise and says you know i'm sorry as i said earlier. Actually the words that people are using here. Are that stuff orlando. He's he's kind of making fun of the situation by coming here because they know that he doesn't like the people from here. Otherwise would have made this a target. The other thing that people are same lawrence is there was a massive ice rate in mississippi today and the people here are saying thank you for throwing more salt on the wound it is he's not lost on them that this was an attack specifically towards nothi knows mexicans may he knows immigrants and that today the federal government went after those same exact people tearing parents away from their children who won't have parents tonight in mississippi and the other thing just to end is that people here are making these connections so they're saying we the people who are in mexico who are trying to get here who are now forced to sleep on the streets in mexico because of the policies of this president who doesn't want refugees is connected to babies being put into cages is connected to toddlers dying. Immigrant detention is connected to the border walls. Being placed. Here is connected to what just happened here. They're making this be a three sixty and they're saying we're putting these dots together and just horror. It's an absolute horror but it is not lost on them and may may this man forty five understand that the people here know exactly what's going on. They know exactly what's going on no matter what anyone says they know it and they feel it and look what i saw right here in their hearts virtue parker and maria hinojosa oh so thank you both very much for joining us on this important. I really appreciate it thank you when we come back joe biden an cory booker rose to the occasion today in a way that donald trump never could and never will joe biden was an iowa today where he was scheduled to give a speech about agricultural cultural policy. He didn't give that speech instead. He delivered a moral indictment against donald trump the words the president matters they can move markets. They can send our brave women and men to war. They can bring peace. They can come a nation in turmoil they could console confronted and comfort. Those who face as tragedy making spire lunatic reach the move they can encourage us to appeal to our better angels strive better nature but they can also lease the deepest darkest forces in this nation. That's what i believe down. Trump is chosen listen to do and one paragraph. Joe biden covered years of offenses by donald trump when trump announced. He was running running for president. He called mexicans rapist days before the midterm he fomented fears of a caravan arben united states more recently. He called american a major american center city. A disgusting rat infected rodent mess. No human being he said would choose to live as though the vibrant diverse community around in baltimore somehow was less than human at a rally in florida when asked the crowd..
"el paso" Discussed on Latino Rebels Radio
"It is sunday august fourth two thousand nineteen. We didn't start with a theme song today because <hes> it's tragic weekend. The date mass shootings the el paso domestic terrorist attack half left so many dead and injured the paso attack is a direct attack gone the borderlands on the community at the u._s. Mexico border on the mexican american community mexican community on the entire u._s. Latino community and i just wanted to give a call to one of my friends just because it's such a special city so i actually reached out to mario kart of america's voice. He's the texas state director actor he's based in austin but he is from el paso and i just gave mario call on sunday afternoon and here's what we talked about. Hey mario is um. Thank you so much for <hes> for taking this call. I'm really happy you're you're on with us. Yeah no thank you for having me. I appreciate it so so you know like i said i have a lot of topsoil friends and i've been so many times and you know in the last twenty four hours. I've seen my twitter feed i you and <hes> gus compared us and <hes> land so who had known and others. I apostles and i just felt like for today. I wanted to talk to someone who was from there and and witnessing at from i know you're in austin and envying and trying to get to like what's going on in the last twenty four to thirty six hours in your mind as you're watching this so first of all sir. How are you feeling yeah. I mean i feel like it's a little hard to answer that definitely still reeling <hes> from what happened yesterday yesterday in my hometown i think initially when the day began a sort of getting texts from friends we have a group text thread among myself myself and some friends from high school. That's how we kind of. Keep touch with each other. Some of them still live in el. Paso others don't have their parents or other family. Members still live in el paso and we kind eh just getting word through social media what was happening and i think for for us immediately. Obviously we think about our parents. We think about our family members and loved ones. I think for us. That's what made this this particular shooting <hes> so different from other that we've seen in this country. Is that it literally hitting so close to home so i mean he allegiance on the phone. <hes> got a hold of my dad and my sister. My mom actually was at one of the hostels that was taking in <hes> the shooting victims victims. She was there visiting visiting my answer sister. <hes> who's looking at the hospital and as shooting broke out <hes> the doctors were there to tell my mom mom she didn't leave then she would have to stay because they're about to go on lockdown <hes> though she just she decided to leave <hes> and this dell the hospital. That was only a couple of blocks awesome. What shooting will stay in place and i mean at that point when my sister told me where my mom was. I was pretty frantic. 'cause she wasn't answering her phone at that point it yeah she she ended up calling calling oh you mean letting me know that she was heading home and she was safe. So i think for me initially think sure that everyone in my life what's safe and protected and those of my friends as well which is what made this shooting unique initially yeah so i mean you don't know what i mean so basically everyone in your inner circle or the people that you kinda roll with everyone's fine like i mean i asked you that sort of semi or you know everyone is finding immediate family in the immediate family strengths for sure yeah and do you know of any i mean obviously i mean pass a big city. I mean i'm not trying to do you know what but you know of any of the stories the people that <hes> in following the coverage or things that you when you skip at the mall or you know when you start thinking about home i mean eh you know what i'm saying like. What do you think about that. Is that when you start. Hearing people going to places are even there at the mall and people shopping like what have you heard. I mean i think for me when when i initially found out that my immediate family and friends were stays immediately think about those who were caught there at that moment and the amount of fear you know it's just something that we cannot comprehend unfortunately it that it continues happening in our country and i mean it's a walmart right that i it it many times in my life and show them this the mall which <hes> was further location shooting is a mall i've been to i can't even count hundreds talk to my life. It's it's beaming el. Paso it's the closest to my high school so i went to east high school and on most fridays back i i was still in high school. We we take our cars and go to the mall and go to the food court so it's all that even now when i go back home you know i still visit with my life so <hes> when when you see the locations and you're like oh my god i've been there like my mom usually in there so it does definitely take on a different dynamic when it's places that are so familiar to you so yeah for sure i mean i i don't know the names of any of the victims of now yeah obviously their the families are very much in my thoughts and my carriers and it's such a tragedy that this happened. You know and i feel like now that we've we've gone beyond distance sharing that family and friends are safe. We obviously started looking into light at this happen. You know like the city has been as many of us who are from there we we. He likes to note that it's one of the safest cities in the country and it's never really experienced anything like what happened yesterday and it's unfortunate that we're hearing about the motives <hes> still waiting on them to be concerned but it does seem like that manifesto that we've seen on social media did come from the shooter. Yeah let me just because yes i think before we get to that i think the short and also because the work that you do and you know the work that i cover as a reporter and coming up of issues. I think it's a very important thing but before we go there because i i mean you think it's something that needs to get discussed chopped me about el paso a- community as a fabric i mean i've been there a handful of times and and that's you know over the course of the nineties when i was twenty something to when i'm kinda like fifty something and i've always felt to be the special place that yeah just it's just so the unique of a place that unless you're there you don't realize how special place it is and and you talk talk about. It and it's not just about as being a safe city. There's just sort of this awareness of like this is like we are in place of the world where uh we live and i'm from petty. People say that he can use like a like a way of life yeah okay like a badge of two hundred two hundred yeah something like talking about the community every time in every one i've met. I've never met a bat. I've never met a angry althouse. I'm sorry guys they're sisters love. There's this genuine at. It's a genuine respect a love you feel it you feel it when you're there yeah. No you absolutely so tell me why is that you know why is that wide-scale possible so special in that sense yeah no certainly so i mean my family and i about gotcha lapasset hi so we migrated from chihuahua and i was five years old and it was the first it was my introduction to america was literally the first place that i went chew in the united states and i always joke my parents as they cross the border and they get set up. We're working here. We'll stop here. We we we on us. We allies yeah yeah. No we really have right like it's a wonderful place and for me. It's it's a it's a big town. That does have a small town feeling to wait. You know a lot of people. A lot of the high schools are really punched folks together so you end up having friends from different parts of terrorism and a lot of places that we go coach. You are generally the same places but it'd be the u._s. Or aunts or it's really beautiful community right and after the fact that you have to claudius right across the border order and it's been such a part of my life <hes> even when i was a child my dad had a business and see that's what is for more than twenty years so for me. <hes> yeah not <hes> going between el paso was just a normal way of life right. It's not something that really was unique at that moment. I don't think you understand how you living on the border is and you tell people that you live on the border or you go away from the border and you live somewhere else and then you think about it like oh yeah i could be in another country and just a couple of minutes is it is it is pretty wild in that sense if it's such a close knit community really is a welcoming community i mean i think we can attest to that. I just how welcoming being the city has been to asylum seekers from the world over <hes> the the reception that folks from other countries receive passover giving me such a great sense of pride right and growing up there you know i'm sorry i'm thinking oh yeah yeah yeah. I know it was a really tough to see that because you grew up there and then you just that's that's the place that was on that was the place that you know allowed me to become the person that i am now and that's that's why i really hurt <hes> what happened yesterday but you know i also know that it's a resilient city. It's everything when you include it which i love life and it's gone through so much over the last eight in terms of violence and you know and we can't we can't separate ourselves from that either so it's a part of one big community that i feel <hes> we'll we'll bounce back better than ever after yesterday's tradit- rather yeah and and you mentioned sort of you know the recent events in the last year with the you know with the <hes> the more the attention to these chris people coming <hes> my understanding and talking to people from from congresswoman that sco par to volunteers cheers to residents is that it's always been welcoming and it's always been a city that is aware of the situation. I think that's why i think when you grow up on the border you have an awareness that goes beyond sort of <hes> i would say like limited knowledge in the united states..

"Allow all the news media to cover his visits in dayton el paso instead you will hear from people who spoke about these events today and who very clearly care about what happened in dayton eight and el paso and have proved that they care and are very worried about where the next mass murderer is going to happen. He will hear from joe biden later in this hour delivering a speech in iowa today in which he condemned donald trump's hatred and racism in the strongest terms we have yet heard from joe biden he linked donald trump's uh-huh language to the massacre in el paso you will hear from senator cory booker later in this hour in a speech that he delivered today in the church in charleston south carolina which was itself the scene of racist mass murderer. You will hear both joe biden an cory booker speak not so much as presidential candidates because they barely referred into their candidacies at all but as moralists appealing to the conscience of most americans who have always rejected everything about donald trump and trumpism and the racism that was the founding principal of trumpism the trump lie about president obama's birth certificate. That's how trump ism was born. In the muck of that racism you will hear from people in el paso who have been and devastated by what has come to their hometown but you will not be hearing the voice of donald trump because donald trump is unable to deliver a single sentence that is in any way appropriate to what happened in dayton in el paso he did not say one serious or true thing today. That is is worth reporting here tonight. Just before donald trump landed in el paso today spoke to an audience in his hometown about the heroes in paso who went to work trying to save the lives of people shot by a mass murderer who believes every word donald trump has told him about mexican americans and about people people who someday hoped to become mexican americans people who hope to enter our country episode and border better o'rourke talked about el paso heroes who rushed i into action after a mass murderer who thinks exactly like donald trump drove hundreds of miles to come to el paso to kill as many people as has he could we had a chance to think the doctors and the surgeons and the nurses and the cleaning staff the nurses has told us as they wield these victims into the trauma bay blood everywhere they'd wheel one patient out cleaning staff would come in like a nascar this car pit crew and clean that bay down so it was clean for the next patient to come in so they could save somebody else's life every single one of them in that hospital and they did the same thing at university medical center doing all that they could for their fellow l. passan's for their fellow. What ends is for their fellow a human beings and they save their lives and one of those surgeons dr smith said this is one of those moments that either destroys your faith in humanity or restores your faith in humanity. El paso chooses to restore our our faith in humanity in one another and in this country the doctors and the nurses of course. We'll never be thanked enough but that's not why they do it. They do it because of a duty that comes from the heart a duty that donald trump could never understand carson veronica escobar who is better or work successor in the house of representatives refused to join the president of the united states on his visit to her city of el paso today because he has not apologized for the things he's he has said about the twenty two people who were murdered in the twenty six people who were wounded in el paso and no donald trump has never talked about those people individually before they were murdered and he has never talked about them individually since they were murdered but they are precisely the people who donald trump has been talking about relentlessly in his rants about the southern border. We will have a lot of work to do do that is not just about repairing the body but also about repairing the mind and the soul and we have to be strong and united knighted in that journey that very difficult journey that lies ahead.

Jim and i have to say started the week after the shootings in el paso in taking both angry and sad about the state of the country but it's it's inspiring to see at least how the people of el paso a city which has a low crime rate and his eighty percent hispanic right by the border order with mexico how they held rallies after the walmart shooting calling for love and not more fear and hatred at the times of crisis like this. It is easy to think that things are always getting worse that we're in some kind of downward spiral and i think one role that we play on this show is is to try to step back and look at the bigger picture.

"El Paso president trump's call for law enforcement and social media companies to develop technology to prevent mass shootings cuts to the heart of several enormous challenges among them the timing of postings in relation to the crime and the sheer volume of social media posts more from James Rundle reporter at the Wall Street journal James set this up you have a doctor a directive from the president he wants you to convert justice selectively colorful some and social media companies to try and hold in place to have some kind of early detection systems for people who aren't going to commit these kind of attacks influencing simply much easier said than done what would they look for if they were trying to be preventative here and the range of things you know you can scan a lot of the free from space for content and form coming from because I mean it's like every single day looking for specific key words that might be associated with terror attacks you can try to target specific individuals who opened for us it's very tempting complex topic but there are complaints also the sense to do this and we are actually put out on the supposed to longer a fee for exactly this content on your site so at this can get tricky as you point out because the manifesto that's tied to the el Paso shooter was supposed to just moments before he carried out the attack him in that that's that's not weeks and months of preparation at law enforcement might have been able to do the record and you know when you get the situation in China combined digital threats with physical threats it becomes a dramatic especially with a pessimist recently was after seasons whether they will often as you so it is a matter of minutes before message with the exception of Ms problems something called the problem Sir locals interesting quickly but Wilson says he sections investorplace forgetting Lawrence to pull in the parking lot of a smell become possible and then that doesn't even get into the questions you need to have more advanced nations about stress and poems that come into play with processing information and write something else I was just a sheer amount of data as you point out the staggering statistics about the number of posts per day yeah with will happen because church in March you know some folks have arguments and the most amount of tensions are for the world to use oxygen provisions to construe workers in front sight but when you talk started to live stream his attack welcome to the club and it took a year to report in the content should happen so from my minutes offer stuff it's a Russian come a wireless James Rundle reporter at the Wall Street journal about historian totaled using social media to prevent mass shootings faces challenges but as you point out the law enforcement agencies they know that social media monitoring is essential what's so what's their best case scenario for this I'm there has to be a part of a possible and to do the local areas and little symbols of the diligence request assistance from the joint terrorism task force which from other guy but late but because the business case and a lot of preparation mages I think the best we can do in these matters is what happens in the ground of it it's in and dates necklace responded in under a minute because they were in the low calibre inflation in the months are gonna help the situation for some I was surprised the view called one guy in your story said monitoring potential attackers now yields less information than in the past I was a possible you're back in the early two thousands a lot of different financial supports most terrorist groups okay either and and similar it's similar it's her since they often have communications stretching the months of each other they would use very specific key words type of their ideology the contracts and picks up on references to you you turned around and and as a sort of a match arbitration such nowadays it's very very difficult to do that kind of people who perpetrate these events and he tends to be associated with online from such a chance the whether they are taking on a system of exams and there was a very well and how to use the mass media and to use social media and search for me to sing the circuit and packet almost impossible to forge after relating to your attacks before they happen and most people are useless and things until the Russian mission forgiven it's the the tracking tool called geo Freedia that you referenced in the story how does that factor into this it was originally from local police departments a few years ago and I'm not use of the change in the status of the truck the specific people James James Rundle reporter at the Wall Street journal fourteen minutes now after the hour.

"So one thing american mass murderers have in common is that they are the very best equipped mass asked murderers in the world. They can thank republicans for making sure that the best tools of mass murder are still legally available available to them and just like the mass murderer at a pittsburgh synagogue before him the mass murderer in el paso agrees with donald trump trump that there is an invasion at our southern border. It's an invasion of our country. We have an invasion of drugs invasion of gangs invasion of people. I don't care what the media says. That's an invasion of our country. We have right now an invasion if you look at what's going on with the caravans caravan's it's an invasion stop. This onslaught this invasion into our country jeff. People hate the word invasion but that's what it is the new york times reports. It's that since january. Mr trump's reelection campaign has posted more than two thousand ads on facebook that include the word invasion part of a barrage of advertising focused on immigration according to data obtained tamed by the new york times the trump campaign had one of its biggest expenditures on facebook ads about immigration last week just before the el paso massacre and surely the el paso mass murderer noticed when one or more trump supporters at a trump rally in florida yelled the solution to the invasion was to quote shoot them them. The president clearly heard his devoted supporters. Yell shoot them and the president smiled. The president didn't say don't shoot them the president welcome to the comment everything about the president's reaction to one of his voters saying shoot them indicated that the president approved of the idea the president is it actually offered his audience these strategic advice to not try to get away with saying shoot them unless they're in a place like the florida panhandle. The presence exact words were that's only in the panhandle. You can get away with that statement now. I'm not going to show you that video tonight night. Because in this morning period it is just too profoundly ugly and hateful to watch and i'm sure most of you remember it. I am very sure that the the el paso mass murderer remembers exactly what the president said about shooting them january discussion now is leeann alien castro democratic presidential candidate he was secretary of housing and urban development in the obama administration after serving as mayor of san antonio texas circuitry castro your reaction to what has happened in el paso and ohio sad for our country and <hes> said that the leader of our country is stoking the hatred and bigotry in the division that is prompting people like that shooter to go and specifically search out latinos to kill this. This is the climate that we find ourselves in in twenty nine thousand nine hundred and you know what else can you say. It's that sad and all of us should be said we should also be infuriated originated as i know a lot of people are and now what we need to do as a country is to figure out a way to channel that anger into something that will change things in our country commonsense gun safety legislation. I was glad to see the folks in ohio chant back and interrupt <hes> there governor telling him to do something. It's also time for congress actually do something and then also we need to give the tools is to the department of justice that they need so that they can root out this domestic terrorism whether it's white supremacist terrorism or other types of domestic terrorism because as as you know the trump administration actually took money away from the agency that does that and maybe most importantly. I think the best way to channel this anger..

"What do you think <hes> you know this. Should he's been saying he's he's been calling nextgen immigrants rapists and criminals <hes> <hes> i. I don't know like members of the press. What the fuck hold on a second you know i i it's it's these <hes> it's these questions that you know the answers to connect the dots about what he's been doing in this country <hes> he's not tolerating racism. He's promoting racism. He's not tolerating violence. He's inciting racism and violence in this country so <hes> you know i just i. I don't know what kind of question that is so i it's important to understand that the battle was coming from of vigil very emotional vigils to honor those who had been killing what you're hearing from bethel rourke the anguish in his voice of frustration astray shen you're hearing from el paso up from every walk of life when when you talk to veronica escobar the congresswoman from this region you you hear the same anguish and anger in in her voice when you talk to priests <hes> when you talk to hairdressers it really doesn't matter that debt anguish and anger is there because our community was targeted that that that anger but in a very dignified way that you hear from the leaders in el paso reflects the sentiment of the people the first reaction on on saturday morning of course what shock but that changed changed overnight. They think saturday into sunday morning when it became very evident. This wasn't just another mass shooting. This was somebody who targeted our community and people should be angry about that if you if you're not angry or if you don't understand the anger that's coming from el paso. I probably probably can't have a conversation with you. Our neighbors were murdered solely because of their heritage <hes> <hes> and and we've seen this as a community coming for two years. This is also a community to court understand that has been the focal point of the lot of the president's border policies family separation started here right now they'll pass wada's are the centerpiece of the administration's remain in mexico program where we're sending asylum-seekers back through very dangerous conditions in my community in march i saw people who were forced to sleep under a bridge simply because they had come to this country to seek asylum and our government couldn't to find a way to handle them. I have in the last couple of months written stories about the autopsy reports of four children who died <hes> <music> at in our government custody mile. All of this is a piece of the same thing. This shootings related all of that. You were talking about about how you know. This is official policy and official rhetoric. These these are all official policies. These are actions by our government in our names means that is inflicting tremendous misery and suffering here and we can have a conversation about immigration and about out border enforcement. We have to understand that these are human lives that that are being touched by this and i think that's what's gotten lost in so much of the rhetoric reckon why it's so easy time for a man who lives north of dallas right grab his a._k._47. And drive to el paso because they're not seen as human beings. Thanks and i think that's something that we just absolutely have to change. If we're going to put a stop to this <music> hey guys this.

Syrian refugees who fled violence and civil war are being sent back to their home country. Where did treating us like this. We don't understand this treatment is not humane at all and a big change for thailand. The government is getting into the medical. Marijuana business business is actually three types of pepper in her mixture putting pepper in the garden and so ty all the stories are much more today. You're on the world. I'm marco werman. This is the world world a man who shielded his wife and their nine year old granddaughter with his body. They were shopping at walmart school supplies. The fifteen year old boy he played <unk> soccer at school. A married couple parents of a two month old baby boy jordan and andre and sean do have your amir rodriguez david johnson. They are all among the twenty. Two people killed in the el paso shooting last weekend. Fernando garcia leads the border network for human rights in el paso. I think we are sorry now. Transition moment from morning are victims are families. I mean this has impacted the soul the spirit of our community community to now asking questions essentially why this happened and i think the answers to those questions are becoming more terrible terrible in even worse than the incident itself because we had a now the realization that this was a result of extreme hate rhetoric rhetoric in anti immigrant feelings and so people is not only sad but also they are outraged and upset. I mean obviously you've got to ask questions uh-huh but is it hard right now to do that to pivot especially after such a horrific tragedy it is hard. I mean i cannot say that he c- c- <hes> we all know somebody that either was there in where attacked or was injured or unfortunately died so i think these the difficult but at the same time we need to call it what it is what we are reflecting on is the intersection of tweedles guns and an white supremacy in whatever solution we had he has to actually deal with that immediately the past seventy two hours just just in terms of what the community there has needed. I mean what kinds of services and supports our people seeking out you know. There's been several community reactions in actions. <hes> wh whoa i mean obviously people is flooding the blood banks. People is a services some visuals but let me tell you one thing. I think it's important the day that saturday that afternoon when i was getting ready preparing for a press conference next day i was in my home in my fourteen year old came to me out of the blue in the midst of those things that i was doing. He looked at me very sad in. He told me that he was afraid. I mean this is a u._s. Citizen the least with a human rights organizer telling his father that he was afraid. What did you talk to him. I mean do you even feel i just i just couldn't say anything honestly have in embrace him and kissed him but i think my reflection at that moment right after this that if this is the case of my son i mean what is the case with many families especially immigrant down families nowadays a new level of fear that like the heat and they racist rhetoric also can kill people i mean there was a fear prior of immigration enforcement and now a fear of people with guns. Are you finding people who are actually changing their daily routines. You know that day the day the venue did they after the event will receive some calls in especially through social media people that was impacted by the shooting there dad walmart they will concern what the presence of border patrol near hospitals and clinics and they didn't want to go to us for help. Your group boarder network for human rights is helping to organize a nationwide vigil tomorrow..
"el paso" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Everybody welcome to the charlie kirk show a little bit more of a somber episode given this weekend's developments in el paso and dayton dayton joined with mr producer. There's a lot of thoughts. We're gonna try to unpack them for you here. I guess we'll we'll begin by first. Just observing just how the coverage is of these horrible tragedies unfortunately in predictably the left has descended into describing these these two mass shootings into some essentially donald trump's fault. I mean we could have predicted that no matter if anything bad happens it's donald trump's felt anything good happens. We can credit to barack doc obama and again. It's so easy wanna politicize things. We're not gonna do that here russian and try to unpack some deeper observations and god god willing some takeaways and some things that we can do differently. I think we're gonna have some different takes and you might get somewhere else but additionally. I mean look so you could blame you could say well the paso shooter under used language similarly to president trump and the counterargument all of the dayton shooter said he would vote for elizabeth warren. He was a raging leftist on twitter okay so let ah again i. I actually love the camp that it really doesn't matter. I i do think these people are domestic terrorists. I don't understand why that's it's controversial to say. I mean they were trying to inflict terror. Amongst a large group of people i would pull i mean i'm totally pushing back and let let's just start. Let's just back up a second so love for the very few that don't know what happened over the weekend. Mass shooting in el paso texas followed quickly but mass shooting dayton ohio. I'm of the opinion and i'm i'm sure that evidence will show that the person dayton ohio is essentially a copycat of the personnel pasa texas the fact that they both happened within a couple of our window goes to show that the mass media coverage twenty four seven news cycle brings people out to go commit more horrible heinous acts. I can actually tell you right now. I don't know either these maniacs names and i'm glad i never want to know their names. I'm just going to refer to it and you won't hear their names on the show. You will not hear their names on this program so el paso in dayton. I really don't care what their names are. I know so far too many of these maniacs names from some of these other shootings and we're going to unpack that so let's let's breakdown. Actually what happened in el paso's a man armed with an assault rifle opened fire shopping. We don't use the word rifle. I it's a made up term so true story so whatever it was a form of an a._k._47. Eight forty seven but it was a semiautomatic rifle. The reason we don't use assault rifle is that it's a it's a made up term by the left so it was a semiautomatic rifle with a heavy be magazine chamber with the capacity to fire rapidly also overheat but it was not a fully automatic weapon yep so but anyway shopping area in el paso actually it was a it was a walmart which was next to the <hes> larger mall area <hes> the texas killing at least twenty people wounding twenty-six others according to officials authorities said on saturday. The suspect was arrested outside a walmart store in eight kilometers from the border checkpoint with mexico. <hes> police confirmed that the twenty one year old was from allen texas and he's the only person in custody so i read this maniacs manifesto. I highly highly encourage you not to read it just because i don't want more eyeballs be put on this psychopaths writings because there's no there's no takeaway whatsoever so i'm going to basically tell you the what was in it. He's a lot of heated and charged. Language seemed to be have a lot of apprehension in his own words of a takeover america and he thought the only way to <hes> rectify that was through violence. Don't ever try to find rationality in these manifestos because they're written by crazy people they're written by psychopaths so they they have strong on through totally related pieces of evidence that relate to their own anxiety and their own inner demons and then what happens is the external world on both sides but mostly the left mostly the leftist media will look at these manifestos l look this is confirmation bias that president trump is the worst person ever and again. We can do that right now when the dayton shooter later but we're not going to do that because it's not true. These people are mentally unhinged so first of all. I'm gonna say this. I i believe that a lot of these shootings shootings have not all of them are more times than not an indictment of our culture and that we have an isolation problem we have rapidly changing country with technology and and young men in particular are feeling. They're being put on the fringes. They've they're feeling highly isolated. However that does not make an excuse for their violence. I'm not going to try to it justify that oh wow because of the emasculation of the american male of something of which i believe is happening. I'm not going to try to create a framework of where this is understandable because this is not understandable so i'm not going to try to justify what they're doing but i will also say this that we've a horrible problem with medication and our country we push pills to children at a young age and some really compelling research and studies show that the rise of anti-depressants and and psychiatric type drugs having having a horrible impact on childhood development and lead to these kinds of outbursts and again. There's lots of studies that go to show that we don't have to dive into that too much but i i would. I would make the argument that there's far too many on. There's a huge problem with over medication and we see someone with any sort of issue that might be a little bit outside of the mainstream throw pills at them and so i can tell you my personal experience. I've always been hyperactive. I've always been someone that has a lot of energy. They tried to give me eighty eighty medication all throughout my childhood and thankfully my parents resisted it and thank my parents wanted nothing to do with that but if anyone is a little bit outside of the normal kind of energy like energy flow the immediately immediately try to throw drugs out and then you drugs to fix what's wrong with the drugs you need more drugs to fix the side effects of those drugs and you kind of goes into this endless downward spiral from from what we understand. The shooter similar to other shooters in the past is they feel highly disaffected. They live on the fringes of society. They spent a ton of time on the internet even admitted did that. He spent ten or twelve hours a day on the internet which goes to show that that's not gonna make you happier. It's not going to be more fulfillment out and take a hike. Guy's gonna walk in the park. I mean but you know every time there's these shootings i just try to tweet bible verses because i believe we're in a spiritual war right now in our country and i mean as a christian i believe jesus is the answer in that. The bible always answers. I love that you bring that up because i think you know there's a there's a con- conflicting that happens here <hes> with white it christian males are the problem in america right now will actually an act like this couldn't be further from what christianity actually stands for it couldn't be further from from goss- won't actually a lot of them tend to get really deep into the white nationalist movement of the white supremacy movement a lot of them. It's a stick they reject christianity indies very realistic main reasons mostly because christianity teaches teaches that verse glaciers through twenty eight there is neither june or gentile neither slave nor free male and female for you are all one in christ jesus i mean this is completely antithetical to their message which has no one is better than the other so it. It can be further from again. We should try if we spend too much time. Just trying to hyper observed these people had a chemical imbalance and it's also a byproduct a product of a societal societal carnage that has happened to our electoral carnage yeah and nevertheless that's what's going to happen in the mainstream media. It's going to be inflation inflation. Let let these people who aren't actually experts tried to inflate some big narrative so the the left always operates like this they have something bad happen okay so for example they find and a couple children that are mistreated on the southern border and they try to connect that to president trump as if president trump demon edict that people in southern border are being mistreated anything wrong that happens happens to try to fit into preexisting narratives that exists so one of the narratives that they've created about this president well. Let's go through some big mayor's that they've created out the president okay. The president is unhinged. That's one of their narratives correct so anytime that president trump might do something asymmetrical or might say something surprising. They say he's unhinged. Are the president is only serving a self interest. I so anytime the president you know dares. Take a day to go golfing with somebody important. They said he's only serving his self interest or they have another one where they say. The president is portraying his base right. We're so whenever you know. China might reciprocate with more tariffs because he's trying to have better trade deals. Put it kind of in that mary the other one the big narrative they've been trying to create for years is that president trump is harming civil society and president trump is creating a group of followers that will further further divide our country and create horrible acts essentially and they tried to create this narrative unsuccessfully in the covington example. Just remember the comington. That was the image they wanted. They wanted the image that president trump is so horrible and he's doing so much damage that even young people are now going after indigenous people mocking when actually ended up backfiring it wasn't the truth whatsoever <hes> and so you see on twitter <unk> trending on twitter hashtag trump terrorists again the person in dayton was not support of the president. He was not a supporter of conservative values. He was enlisted warren support but again. That's not why he did that. We're not going to use hush. Check wards terrorists that are progressive eras. That's not who we are or what we're going to argue for so the first thing i question the icon wanna poses i mean how many mass shootings do you think jordan peterson is. No prevented. I mean jordan. Peterson is a hero western civilization well this this this was an a discussion that we were having before <hes> during show prep talking about <hes> disaffected youth disaffected young men a lot of these shooters tend to be it really really young twenties early twenties late teens mid twenties and it's at that perfect time in their in their development where they're they're looking for mentors. They're looking for direction looking for identity and that is probably if you look at the videos on youtube something like that. After jordan peterson speaks you get a lot of these young men in coming up to him praising him giving him all this and it's well deserved praise jordan.

"el paso" Discussed on PRI's The World
"But it is not so simple and El Paso residents. Find themselves having to constantly refute. The claim Monaco Ortiz rebe as a journalist in El Paso and a native of the city. She's lived the story as well. As reported on it. It depends where in El Paso where you visit. There is a neighborhood that butts up. Right along the US Mexico border in El Paso that neighborhood is called she. Well, we thought it's one of the oldest in the city and people there say that the border wall has helped make their neighborhoods safer before the wall was constructed. People could easily run across the dry bed of the Rio Grande into the neighborhood and cross back into Mexico. The residents who live there said that there was a problem with with burglaries sometimes assaults. Their laundry would get stolen off the line or a bike would go missing. And there were gangs in Mexico that sometimes crossed over and this is documented by police. So the wall has proven to be effective in highly urban concentrated areas, but where it loses effectiveness is in more rule and less populated areas before the wall Monica what was the reality about crime in Paso like in the urban part of El Paso well. Well, I mean studies have shown that immigrant communities tend to be safer. Immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than US citizens and El Paso is a city of immigrants going back from its very beginnings often people confuse El Paso with its neighboring city in Mexico. See the what is and that city has been among the more violent in Mexico about a decade ago when there was a brutal drug war going on and see the what is the Texas. Governor Rick Perry, then said that a car bomb had gone off in El Paso, when it had actually gone off in see the what is so even our own governor has confused the safety record of Al Paso with its sister city in Mexico Monaco's, I said, you're also a resident of El Paso, what's your life like there?

We don't really worry very much about our safety in opacity. What's his moment of been like with the president saying these things that a lot of people in Paso, just feel are not true. It's just a this was a false claim that he had made in the past many residents. Here have spoken out to debunk that claim because they know that I'll pass oh has been ranked as one of the safest cities for years and years now even prior to the construction of the border fence, and it's a claim that's easily debunked by simply looking at FBI statistics in the city and looking at these studies that show. Yes. Immigrant communities are far safer last weekend. Residents in Paso got together and held a protest from downtown El Paso, right up to the US Mexico border, and they all came out in solidarity against Trump's immigration policies and against further construction of a border fence won't go or or EBay is a journalist and also a resident of El Paso, which is where she joined us from. Thanks, very much Monica. Good to speak with you. Your welcome. San Antonio, Texas is more than a hundred miles from the border.
