Biden Orders Broad Supply-Chain Review Amid Chip Shortages
"The biden administration has signed an executive order mandating. A one hundred day review of critical supply chains. Yes some of the concern here is that they want to make sure we never again have shortages of critical things like masks and other p. e. or materials necessary for mass vaccination say pharmaceuticals even food. Basically they want the us to be less. Reliant on overseas sources for critical materials like these but also there's a heavy tech angle here quoting the wall street journal the executive order mandates a one hundred day review of supply chains for four areas. Semiconductors used in products from cars to phones large-capacity batteries use electric vehicles pharmaceuticals and rare earth elements that are key to technology and defense pharmaceuticals and rare earth elements. That are key to technology and defense. The executive order wouldn't fix the near term chip shortage. White house officials acknowledged but the hope is to produce a longer term plan to help the federal government prevent future supply chain problems. They are separately looking for ways to ease the backlog facing us automakers while white house officials said the executive action isn't aimed at one particular country it comes as us interest rises in combating china and fostering ties with other supplier countries. China dominates the rare earths market and is a major player in other supply areas including pharmaceuticals and quote.

CDC launches VaccineFinder tool to locate COVID-19 vaccine providers
"19 vaccine, But you can't find one help could be on the way. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just launched an online search tool in partnership with Boston Children's Hospital. Help people identify which facilities have supplies of the vaccine. It's called vaccine finder dot org's. This initial launch is limited to certain providers in most states, NPR's Selena Simmons, Duffin has details. When you put in your zip code at vaccine, find her dot org's. You see an interactive map showing local pharmacies that get Cove in 19 vaccine doses from the federal government. You also see whether they have doses in stock. If you live in Alaska, Indiana, Iowa or Tennessee, you're in luck. Because in those states, the maps show more places administering Cove in 19 vaccines. Not just pharmacies, but private hospitals and clinics and public health sites, ideas to show vaccine providers that are open to the public. How to contact them how to book an appointment. And kind of show the daily inventory status of people are clearing where there's vaccine and where there isn't That's John Brownstein, the founder of Vaccine Finder and chief information officer at Boston Children's Hospital, he says. After this initial launch, more providers in more places are expected to join in in the coming days and weeks. That scene finder is actually not new. It began nine years ago. It all started after each one. Anyone where we want to figure out how to provide the population with the best possible insights and where vaccine was in their communities, and since then We have been building this platform usually showing people where to get the seasonal flu shot or travel vaccines, Bronstein says. In recent months, a team of about three dozen people has been working feverishly to launch this tool toe work for people looking for covert 19 vaccines. While navigating the fact that at this moment, vaccine supplies relatively low and eligibility is limited, both of which constrained how useful the tool is. In case the Kaiser Family Foundation says she wishes this tool had been around a few weeks ago. In the meantime, many states have created their own provider maps people can use, and that's added to this confusing patchwork. This idea has a lot of potential, but I think there's still some questions about what will it be like in practice. There are also concerns about how many providers will put their information on vaccine finder and whether the providers will really update their inventory every 24 hours. I've seen finders John Brown seen acknowledges. This is not a silver bullet. What we're trying to do is add a resource into the mix to help consumers. Of course not all problems get solved with a new website. And he says they have partnerships to put vaccine find her info about where vaccine providers are located and who has shot's available in lots of different places online from Google maps to the traffic app ways too Good are ex, so it's not just about coming in the website, but meeting consumers where they are. Are on making sure that anybody who's looking for a vaccine knows where to find them. The supply of Corona virus vaccine doses is growing. The Biden administration says it's now sending out over 16 million doses a week and increase of more than 70% since inauguration. Assuming that trend continues, more shots will be available and more providers like clinics and even doctors. Offices will be able to begin distributing vaccine doses as well. So people can look forward to a time when Cove in 19 vaccine doses are abundant and everyone is eligible. And you might even be able to ask your smart speaker to find a clinic nearby with vaccine doses and stock and head over to get your shot. Selena Simmons Duffin
House to vote on $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill this week
"Trillion coronavirus Relief bill will go to a vote this week. Republicans in Congress say it is too much money. Here's Congressman James Comber from Kentucky. Congress already appropriated $150 billion in the cares act for state and local governments. And not all this money's been spent. So the Biden administration is looking outside of Washington, D. C to build their case. Here's NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith. When Mesa Arizona Mayor John Giles looks out his window at City Hall, he can see the convention center. It's become a hub for those seeking help in the pandemic. And on alternating days it is people that are there too. Up there drunk and get £50 of food, putting their trump or its people. They're waiting in line to get the vaccine. So it's a pretty sobering view from the mayor's office. His city got $90 million in relief funds last spring spent it all and Giles says they easily could have filed receipts for double that. Sobering view from his office window explains why this Republican mayor is pushing hard for the $350 billion in funding for state and local governments in the bill. You know this is it's just too important to engage in silly partisan debates. Most cities and towns didn't get direct help, like Mesa did. They had to wait for it to trickle down through their states and counties. The deadline to spend it isn't until the end of this year, so some are trying to make it last as they manage strapped budgets. For months now, a bipartisan group of mayors has been pushing for more. In July. We called ourselves July or bust. That's Dayton, Ohio Mayor Nan Whaley, a Democrat. Her city's budget has been slammed by the pandemic so much so that she isn't sure they'll be able to train a new class of police officers or firefighters. This year. We're not like the federal government, we have to have a balanced budget. So if we don't get a federal money, no fire class Dayton is recruiting new firefighters and police officers but may not be able to bring them on board without more money. When it comes to the schools. It's a similar story. Congress has approved about $68 billion so far for K 12 schools. Well, not all of the funds have been spent. Education officials say the money is spoken for, and they need more. In Pennsylvania Palisades School District Superintendent Bridget O'Connell says they were able to reopen in the fall. And that meant hiring more teachers to reduce class sizes and to teach online So it is a staff intensive endeavor to educate kids during a pandemic Staff aren't paid up front, which is one reason why it may look like funds or unspent. And the bulk of the money Congress approved for schools last year is just now going out. Superintendent Sean Record from Pema, Arizona on Lee found out last week how much his district can expect to get. I have a list of all you know of things that we need in order to be able to You know, provide better social distancing more safety for teachers, more safety for students. They've been open nearly full time since the fall making do with the money. They have his message to critics who point to unspent funds and say schools don't need more. It isn't a light switch. The money doesn't get approved one day and spent the next And that's why President Biden and Democrats are pushing ahead with new funding and say they can't wait for Republicans in Congress to come around tomorrow.

What’s Really Behind Corporate Promises on Climate Change?
"And corporate America. And I'm curious how much of this is the big tech tail wagging the Fortune one thousand's What Ragging the fortune 1000 dog. In other words, you see Facebook and Twitter being more aggressive YouTube and Google, obviously, as well being more aggressive with censorship, and how much of that is saying, Well, you know, these are the cultural mavens and we need access to their communication channels. We don't want to run. Afoul of Their political mores. And so we're going to essentially follow the corporate culture of those big tech companies. Well, A lot of it is is in fact, as you say, being directed by a big tech, but a lot of is also coming from finance industry. Um, if you look at, for example, Black Rock, which is the largest Asset management firm in the world was almost $9 trillion. His assets under management for the past two years. Its CEO Larry think it sent a letter to the clients and two CEOs telling them that their primary Responsibility will be to, um Focus on specific sustainability, which is code for climate change a zoo their primary investment guidance. And so they expect for all companies to disclose any and all possible information about what they're doing with respect to climate change and how they're building their businesses around climate change and how they're preparing. Or this interpret to prevent this catastrophe on if they do not, uh Cooperate with what black rock demands in Black Rock will use its leverage to change boards of directors to change management to change the bylaws of the corporations there. Black Rock has an enormous amount of influence and with together with The other two large, passive investment firm, State Street and Vanguard. It can essentially impose its will on corporations and that's what they're doing. Yeah, I mean, this is this is just this is one big blob, and it's so one institution or institution or sector leader. You know, essentially serves the other. They sort of meld all together, and that includes We can't leave out the federal government. The nominee. The bite nominee for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau gentleman named RoWhite Chopper to, uh, who is a Elizabeth Warren protege. Has come up with a new idea to paper he opened he authored a couple of years ago for a think tank for a public integrity. Protection agency. The director would serve for 10 years subject to removal proceeding similar to that of a federal judge, basically like they envisioned for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, untouchable by the elected branches. And it would regulate political activities. Restrictions on advocacy, declaring that, for example, the use of think tanks, another nonprofit organizations to further the economic interests of its benefactors. Their policy research search should be impermissible. And it would look at issue based on profits progressive or conservative tea. Oh, identify whether they're advancing someone's interests, which, of course they always are, and if they are, then they could be subject to federal regulation. S O s. So you have that culture coming potentially from the federal government. I mean, that's just in idea form right now, but it gives you a new insight into the perspective and the mind's eye of Thies regulators at the highest levels of the federal government. Combined with what you're getting from some of the most powerful CEO owes and finance and tech and you, you know, it's sort of goes back to the question I asked previously. How does this all and other than badly like in some sort of Chinese communist authoritarian form of societal organization? Well, I certainly think we're moving too. Um or Authoritarian state, and that's that's the point of all of this is in the book. I trace the history of The, uh, anti Democratic nature of, UM administration but Public administration and business administration over the last Probably century and a half to arrive at the point today where we have not just government. But as you say, big tech and big finance on Big entertainment, all Intending. To do big things to change the way the world works and to go around the people in order to do so. That's the whole nature of this is its anti Democratic. It is. Intended to usurp the power of the people and to impose these political beliefs from the cop down against the will of the people. So it clearly it's authoritarians by nature. Um, I think before we end up in a totalitarian type state, however, were probably see Aiden. Natural backlash in the finance community. Where, uh, you know any type of investments, uh, that miss allocates capital eventually creates a problem and Allocating capital specifically based on social goals is clearly in this allocation of capital. And it will eventually cause problems. Um and well, you know? Well, that backlash be big enough. And soon enough is the question. Well, I think the backlash will be big enough and it will be soon enough. But unfortunately it's going to cost a lot of ordinary people. Ah, lot of money When I say Black Rock has $9 trillion in assets under management there that they're leveraging that that money isn't Larry thinks that money isn't isn't black rocks that money is yours and mine and everybody who Who investor has a four Oh one k or an I R a S o. I think that they're they're hard times coming. Um But eventually I think that will be a backlash against this on. Do you know the question is just gonna be how much will it cost us?

Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG
"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Provides Update On Chicago's Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout
"Black and Hispanic Americans are about twice as likely to die from covert 19 is white Americans, yet they have been vaccinated. At much lower rates across the country that in Chicago, about half of the city's vaccinations are for people of color. The mayor of Chicago, of course, is Lori Lightfoot, and she joins us now more like for thanks so much for being with us. Good morning, Scott. A pleasure to be with you early in the vaccine roll out less than 20% of vaccine doses went to Chicago. Once of color. Now, that's half. What did Chicago do? That can make a difference. Can it be done in other places? Well, we work extremely hard to overcome. Vaccine hasn't see in communities of color protect particularly black and like flat necks, and really that hard work began at the very beginning of the pandemic. We were seeing the disproportion impact on communities of color, this horrible virus. We went to work in those communities, which trusted partners. And I think those that hard work over time is starting to bear fruit in the significant off take to go from, you know the low teens. Of uptake in the early days of the vaccine program to now over 50% is remarkable turnaround, and it's really do that the hard work of so many people across our city certainly led by city government, But really, our partners in the neighborhoods deserve the credit because they recognize this life saving Vaccine has to go to those people that are most in need. And in our city That means communities of color. But what's the messaging in this Because, of course, you know, a lot of the hesitancy is historic, based on things that, obviously well, what's the message Inky were able to convince you there's there's no secret sauce, and it's really ah lot of diligence, one on one conversation and getting people who are trusted. Community partners in those neighborhoods who recognizable literally. We've gone door to door for months now to get people educated. Provide them with information really do a lot of myth busting and you've just got a Put in the hard work to overcome their fears. And I think as people have seen people that they recognize whether it's a mayor of color as I am or their neighbors who are getting the vaccine without adverse consequences. It's bringing people who are really standing on the sidelines into the field of play and saying, all right I'll do this. I think it's safe. Have to ask you Mayor Lightfoot, a zoo, you know. Chicago Tribune reported this week that the city spent more than $280 million nearly 60% of the discretionary spending money it got under the Caress Coronavirus relief package. On CPD, the Chicago police Department. Is that true? And what do you say? OK, I'm going to quote Alderman less Fatah. The first ward, who says that money should have been sent on spent on housing assistance in small businesses, not the police. Well, we spent Tens of millions of dollars on a significant number of community service and social service programs. As you know, Scott when the tears package Came from Congress. It came through specific line items and grants for programs like homelessness, community health, um, violence prevention and other things. Those were designated dollars where there was really no flexibility whatsoever and how that money was spent, and we spent it accordingly. There were some money, however, that the federal government gave to cities like Chicago to address the unprecedented need to respond to covert 19. And yes, we spent money on a range of first responder activities because they were at the front lines in many instances, particularly in the early days of our covert 19 response. So the criticism that somehow we should have taken a pass on free money from the federal government that came to address unprecedented and unbudgeted needs that were in our city just doesn't make any sense. I make no apologies for the fact that we took advantage of the opportunities that the federal gave government gave us rather than passing on. Was expensive to our taxpayers, so that the the choices do we actually take advantage of the re rope the money that has given us two by the federal government and save Burden on our taxpayers, or do we just pass along the cost to the taxpayers? I understand with our taxpayers every single day and do everything that I can to save them from any further burden, And that's exactly what we did in Chicago. Thanks so much my pleasure.

"Being usurped by the federal government but that's not what Congress wants. They want to know that all these Supreme Court justices will be rubberstamps to allow anything they want and they're acting as if the real threat here is that women are GonNa lose their right to an abortion, which of course, is not going to happen and even under the situation where the Supreme Court actually says that the federal government. Can't interfere with the states and that's with all. The Roe v Wade is about it's about Kansas state's in posed their own restrictions on abortion and the federal government says, no, they can't write states have the power to place limitations on abortion even that precedent was overturned the goes back to the states. So how many states are going to outlaw abortion mean most in these highly liberal states that are so worried about an overturn of Roe. V Way have nothing to worry about in their respective states. There's no way that California is going to impose these type of restrictions. In California there are very few states that would place type of restrictions that the pro-life movement is really worried about and to the extent that those states did all that would mean would be if you happen to live in one of those states, you might have to go across the border how hard is that? You know I mean it's not that difficult if you live in a state and they have all these restrictions against abortion. Okay. So the worst case scenario is you go to another state if that's what you WANNA do they're not going to ban that they're not gonNA, make it illegal for you to drive across the state line, and then when you're in another state I mean look if the drinking age. And now you know the drinking age is pretty much twenty-one everywhere. But you know if you lived in a state where the drinking age was eighteen and you went into a state where it's twenty one, you couldn't drink in fact in Puerto Rico, the drinking age is still eighteen. So anybody that lives in one of the states you can come the Puerto Rico if you're nineteen years old and you can drink. Is Legal Drinking Puerto. Rico it doesn't matter that it's illegal to drink where you live the laws that are affect our where you happen to be. So if you go to a bar in Puerto Rico and you're nineteen will then you could drink legally. So if you live in a state where there are certain restrictions on abortion and you don't want to follow those restrictions, you just go to was state that doesn't have those restrictions and then you can live with the no state laws. So this is all a red herring. Yes..

"So the Constitution provides that golden silver is money because the only thing that can be money is golden silver therefore the only. Thing the federal government coin would be golden silver. Now you might think well, does that mean they can print money? No, it doesn't because printing money was emitting bills of credit. The initial draft of the Constitution read Congress has the power to coin money and builds credit. They struck it. They had vote and I think it was ninety two and they said, no, we don't want the federal government to be able to omit bills of credit. So we didn't that power now they didn't want the states to do it either that's why Article One section ten denies specifically says that the States cannot admit bills of credit so the states can't do it. And the federal government can't do it either because the states were denied the ability to do it and the federal was not given the ability to do it. So nobody can do. So why do we have all this paper money? It's clearly unconstitutional. Now again, they had established to Federal Reserve as a private company because there's nothing in the constitution says, private banks can issue bills of credit. So the Federal Reserve was created to do what congress was legally prevented from doing, which was printing money but of course, defacto that's what he's doing because the Federal Reserve doesn't act like a private business it acts like as part of the government and so. The government is using the Federal Reserve to get around the constitution and in fact, if you look at the earlier legal tender cases and there were some supreme. Court, legal tender cases during the civil war, which was when Congress for the first time introduced paper money we didn't have any paper money until the greenback's came out during the civil war and when the civil war was over, they discontinued it. So we didn't get paper money again until the Fed reserve right in one, thousand, nine, hundred eighteen. But there were some legal challenges to the federal government issuing paper money, and of course, that paper money was actually backed by gold it wasn't Fiat. Money we have. Now it was backed by gold and redeemable in gold but still there was a constitutional challenge because that was not constitutional and win. The government argued for the constitutionality of the paper money that was issued during the war and that was backed by gold. The government doesn't point to the monetary provision. The government did not try to claim that coin money meant to print money. They didn't even try to make that claim because that's absurd. It was they actually looked to the necessary and proper clause which.

Withhold federal aid because he disapproves of California's forest management. What money exactly is trump talking about their what does that mean I have a clue what that means I think what he thinks that means is that he controls the budget and he can move money around Willy. Nilly. Actually, he can't do that because the budget was set for this year two years ago. So in fact, he can't control this year's money that's already in the pipeline and you can't control years. So it's a rhetorical play that actually has no value whatsoever and I suspect in the fire camps the. Firefighters are just sort of baffled by his claims of rakes and other tools that would better forest management. That's far. We've talked largely about the fire prevention camp. But what about in the disaster relief camp of this can the federal government help at that point I think can and I think part of what we see in hurricanes and tornadoes this FEMA moves in and provides services it doesn't do that with fires. That's not in its writ. So it seems to me that's another piece that Congress can do, which is to help FEMA become part of the emergency relief process because in fact, when you've got forty thousand Oregonians on the road or many more than that, in California at various times, those systems get strained. We don't have enough firefighters first of all and we certainly don't have enough first responders in the post fire reconstruction process. That's something that female does for tornadoes, hurricanes and the like, and it is puzzling to me that that's Not Part of its job, but that's historically not been the case..

"Can you just talk a little bit more about that meeting on Monday president trump as you said, traveled to California and met with Governor Gavin Newsom, he's adjusted their that climate change is not playing a role in west coast wildfires. How did that conversation go between the two of them? It was very interesting and actually the more contentious and more pointed conversation was between President and another state official. The leader of the California Natural Resources Agency. But Gavin NEWSOM has had an interesting relationship with the president during his governorship tried to kind of get the president of knowledge at least his perspective on climate change that it was definitely a contributing factor. To the fires but there was another official, a state official who crest the president in saying that this is a climate change caused issue, and that's when the president said. Just you watch it, we'll get cooler and Wade Crawford who is that California State official said I wish signs agreed with you and then the president responded well, I don't think science does actually. And that was another example where he has has doubt on the actual science and the actual facts and the expert consensus on not only this environmental issue, the climate issue. But on many other issues, we're seeing that with the coronavirus pandemic right now, this is the president who has called permit change a hoax. His Environmental Record Office has clearly been something that. Has Oiled environmentalists views, and so this was not an unexpected turn from him considering his record in office in just to be totally clear this is ignited a bit of a debate whether it's forest management or climate change that's responsible for these lovers getting out of control based on your reporting what have you found to that point? What is responsible for these wildfires? Well, there are many factors I mean because of just the sprawl of the population particularly in California away from these urban cities that are just more people building on this forestry land we talked earlier about managing forest being one factor. I thought it was really interesting when governor new some said during the meeting to President trump is that you're right we haven't done justice to forest management, but then he also points. Out that nearly sixty percent of landing, California is owned by the federal government. So the federal government has a role to play here in forest upkeeping if you will, and only three percent of the land is actually owned by the state, and so the state can only do so much and keeping the area clear. But clearly, like we discussed earlier, manmade climate change is a major contributing factor. It's gotten hotter drier. Factors create tinderbox and create almost like a perfect storm of factors that allow these fires to really burn out of control yet even despite trump's rhetoric in.

But what's your reflections on what the secretary is saying. No it's fascinating and strikes a chord. I mean for example you know states competing with the federal government. There was an example of that in Massachusetts where Charlie Baker the the state government had ordered three million and ninety five masks and they were making their way to Massachusetts through the port of New York. The federal government impounded them. They went into the national stockpile which created all kinds of problems so the governor of Massachusetts went around that and figure out figured out a private relief mission to China to get his own and thirty five masks and that's an example where cooperation with federal government might have eased some of those complications intentions. I guess and that private relief mission was on the.

"ARE BOSTON. I'm magnitude for Birdie and this is on point today. We're going to talk about the tensions between the federal government and states. President trump insisted this week that he holds ultimate authority to dictate when the country can reopen. Meanwhile governors in several states in the northeast and the northwestern the West. In general announced the formation of coalitions to coordinate reopening regionally so what is the ideal way for officials to work together for the good of all citizens? This hour point governors the president and the pandemic. Now in a moment we'll talk with Kathleen civilians about this the former health and human services secretary and Kansas Governor. We'll start though with Anthony Brooks on points twenty twenty correspondent and Wbu our senior political reporter. He's in Dublin New Hampshire. Hi There Anthony High Magnum well. I mentioned The fact that the president this week said he had ultimate authority I just WanNa start our conversation By playing more of what the president said this is during the daily briefing on Monday? The president of the United States has the authority to do what the president has the authority to which is very powerful. The president of the United States calls the shots. If we weren't here for the states you would have had a problem in this country. Like you've never seen before we were here to back them up and we'd back more than back them up. We did a job that nobody ever thought was possible. It's a decision for the president of the United States so Anthony. First of all. How did governors respond to the President? Saying that yeah and that followed a statement that he had set earlier where he did use that term total authority and that was in the context of suggesting that he could tell the governor's what to do with regard to their plans to reopen their states for business and that's been pretty flatly rejected by democratic governors as well as other Republicans across the country Andrew Cuomo the Democratic governor of New York said even in emergency. The president doesn't get to be king. People like Liz. Cheney the representative from Wyoming. She's one of the senior women a senior women in Congress. She said the federal government does not have absolute power and and went on to quote the text from the tenth amendment. Which you know basically says what powers aren't giving specifically to the president are reserved to the states And so this was pretty much flatly rejected this idea and then president trump seem to walk it back a little bit and he said that he's going to be talking to all fifty governors and I will then be authorizing each individual governor of each individual state to implement a reopening now. That's a strange comment because in a way. The governor's don't need trump to authorize these moves. They have the authority. They're the ones that impose. The lockdown orders the school closure orders and that sort of staffing. They're the ones who have ultimate authority to reopen them. So it just created this kind of constitutional kerfuffle and a lot of noise about presidential authority and I think for the most part. The governors are getting on with the work that they're doing trying to save lives. Okay well let's listen to the president himself saying what what you just mentioned. Anthony about his walking back a little bit. On Tuesday of his claim total authority. I will be speaking to all fifty governors very shortly and I will then be authorizing each individual governor of each individual state to implement a reopening at a very powerful reopening plan of their state at a time and in a manner as most appropriate. So that's the president on Tuesday on the same day. California Governor Gavin Newsom in his daily press conference Shared his re-opening Plan for California. He described it as a fourth phase and had this to say about the factors that will determine when that can happen. This phase is one where science more public health not. Politics must be the guide Where we must be open to argument interested in evidence where we cannot be ideological in any way shape or form in terms of how we approach condition that changes on an hourly and daily basis conditions. That will ultimately termine What BETTER DECISIONS? We make in terms of that transition. That's California Governor Gavin newsom also on Tuesday so anthony a couple of things there first of all just so that we're clear Is there any legal justification for for the president's claim you mentioned Senator Cheney's saying you know the tenth amendment but is there is there any claim Yeah Congresswoman Cheney? It doesn't seem to be you know. I'm not a legal expert but I I will say that. I've done as much reading on this as I can and I haven't found a legal expert. Who sort of Said Yeah. The president has the authority to do that. Look this country was set up as a federal assistance. And there's a lot of power that the states have. The president has a lot of authority. But one thing he doesn't have is an authority to overrule Governors as they try to implement things like stay at home orders and other issues that that that protect their citizens directly the power the powers and they're now that said the president does have an extraordinary amount of power. He can claim extra power during emergencies. And we can talk about that As the hour goes on but I think if you think about sort of the implications of what he's saying I mean. Imagine a presidential order basically saying to a city mayor. You've got a reopen your schools. I mean that's just not where Federal Authority lies and most of the legal experts all legal experts that I've read on. This pretty much concur with that and you heard the president sort of backpedaling there but even as he backpedaled he. He said he will be authorizing each individual governor to implementary opening. He doesn't have authority to do that anymore than he had. He could have prevented governors from shutting down their states and trying to stay save lives the divisions of power in our system. Just do not allow that to happen so in a moment anthony. Let's talk a little bit more about these regional. Compacts essentially that governors are making. But but I'm curious what you what your thought is on why. There is a sort of a resistance. Were for beyond the legal issues of for governors to to be more conciliatory towards the president. Well I mean I. It depends who you're talking about now. Here's an interesting case in point and I know you're familiar with this because you're in Boston and I've been governor Charlie Baker a lot. He's a Republican governor in in basically a a blue state but you know he has been trying to sort of block out the sort of Norway's around this and just stay focused on trying to save lives and doing what he needs to do. But the reason why you know he wants the independence to do what he thinks is right. Is He's making these decisions based on science based on what he's hearing from medical experts and when he talks about reopening he says before we can even have a serious conversation about reopening. Massachusetts for example. We've got to be sure that we've ramped up testing so that we can do a serious effort contact. Tracing we've got to make sure the infection rates are manageable. That is that they're not still growing at an exponential level and we have to really think about which businesses which institutions which organizations schools and so forth are in a place where they can open reopen. And the other thing they're talking about and you mentioned this is they wanna cooperate with neighboring states. Because it's not gonNa make sense for example for. Let's say New Hampshire from where I'm talking to you right now to say yeah we're open for business and Massachusetts remains closed and obviously that would allow people to cross the line which we do every single day going back and forth to work and moving into one area that has opened and back into another area whereas that's closed and carrying infection or the risk of infection back and forth across state lines so of course the governor's want to cooperate very carefully with each other so that's another reason why they have to have a certain amount of independence from Washington and from the president's idea of when he would like the country to reopen and same logic goes As you noted for those Western states that are also working together here But the you know. The the trump administration is going to be releasing their guidelines for when the country reopens. Is there a sense that just wondering Anthony think there's going to be a lot of overlap? There could this be a door to more more federal estate cooperation. Well I think the president walking back that statement that he made Monday was sort of a signal that there's going to be more cooperation and I want to be clear. I think there is a lot of cooperation. I mean to go back to the example of of Charlie Baker Republican who's no big Fan of Donald Trump. You know. He makes the point that the states have to make these decisions on their own but he also makes the point that he talks to fema every day. For example they're dependent on cooperating with the federal government on a number of levels whether it's trying to get hold of more ventilators more personal protection equipment from the national stockpile even trying to figure out how to pay extra unemployment benefits. They need guidance from the federal government after the cares a bill was passed by. Congress for example. So there's a lot of cooperation that goes on a on a daily basis notwithstanding these sort of extraordinary statements that we hear sometimes coming from the White House. Yeah it's interesting though because we see you governors. I'm thinking particularly Republican governors like Charlie Baker. Who are trying to sort of. Walk the thin line of of getting on the president's bad side while at the same time struggling against as a state against the federal government who what about for example other. Republican governors of Mike Dewine in Ohio. Yeah Mike devan DeWine is an interesting an interesting case in point because like you said I think you expressed it well. He's walking a fine line. I'm looking at a quote from him. Recently this is not a confrontational issue between us and the White House. We work together and we will continue to together. He said you know at the same time. He's he's determined to lay out a plan that makes sense for Ohio and And he's made statements that he wants to be informed by science. And what makes sense for for that state so but like Baker as a Republican? You know he's not sort of going out on not limb but he's he's trying to sort of tune out and look beyond the kind of noise that has Been built up this week because of this statement by President Trump. But there's no question as well that the president does have a certain kind of influence particularly with with Republican governors in in states where the president still remains very popular. And that's part of the power that he has to sort of use the bully pulpit to to kind of encourage people say come on we got to open up we. GotTa get back to business. We gotta get this up and running and that's a big part of the of the power legitimate or not that he does have well.

Sales and marketing Leaders operators experts doing today to really break through and grow their businesses at exponential levels. Let's get it in the interview at the end. Give you an update on my courses and you can check out my website at B. Two B. Revenue Dot com and. It's Brian G Burns. Aw on linked in Kevin. Welcome back to the show's way of getting started gives an update. Well I always be here. Thanks for having me on so for the first two three two thirds of my career. I was a buyer with the US. Military right and had podcast. You've actually been on our podcast and I was a contracting officer and I bought all kinds of stuff you are indeed aircraft vehicle has things and while I was on the government side. It was frustrated. How little Really understood about the decision trees. I went through as a contracting officer on the buyer side. And so the idea of starting my business owes to help them understand okay. Well what's the buyer thinking? So in two thousand eleven started the business. Certainly help people understand. What the context they need is from the buyer side. That's the problem we solve. We give context so they can win more work and here. We are not been listening to podcasts. For years you'll out of the same language Ten years later of we've got it's been really fun. And now we have customers from coast to coast and it's really starting to take off and right now is a particularly time to be active in the market and so I figured it was worth unite chatting about some of the things that we're seeing helps help folks. Let's start there. What are you seeing off? The biggest thing right now is at the macro level. The market consumer United Free Fall Still. The market is more. It's not as bad. What is not great either it. Bg market? What we're seeing is already starting to stabilize of. It is kind of normal but a lot of this. Get a couple of reasons. The first one the work still has to get done right. I mean the the funding was already been budgeted allocated committed obligated and those are all new government speak terms for the fact that the government folks have this mindset a half us right so at the macro level the COVA NFL. I'd probably state a lot of them. Their their mission has to keep going right. That's that's how this works back last Friday when the middle of all this NASA awarded spacex. A multi-billion up to seven billion dollar contract for commercial services. So what we're seeing. Is The government folks. There was a dip when they had to get home and figure out. How am I gonNA work from home? A lot of them. Were already working from home two days a week now. They're just home five days a week with the works still has to get done and this is different for those of us have been doing this a long time because after nine eleven. I couldn't do my job as a constantly officer. I wasn't in the office will now they can. So we're seeing that the momentum is already starting to correct right. Of course you also have growth in other areas that nobody was thinking about six weeks ago. In addition based on our history historical data right if federal government is always going to invest in projects going to restart the economy at the macro level. And so we're starting to see conversations about finally worked on this two trillion dollars that people want to invest in our infrastructure in roads and bridges. And all that kind of stuff right so. That's one of the things that got us out of the depression. Way Back in one thousand nine hundred eighty s right. So there's you look at the data historically after a recession. The government tends to be the one. That's that number has the money and is also investing it. So that's what we're seeing. This already starting to happen. And what are your clients telling you right now. Say That's where a lot of this comes from. Is that it took them a couple of them said there. About ninety percent effective from there from continuing their government contracts. A lot of that is. It's taking longer to get stuff done. But that's the time they used to Commute. So it's an it's an it's about the same right and the because the government is understand. They're in the same boat the funny thing that they're telling us they're contracting officers actually more responsive than they had been in the past traditional. That's the biggest challenge you have. Governor contracting is getting the country officers to talk to You. That's one of the things that we do is help them break through that getting to talk to you. Well in this case they will have as many meetings. They're at home. They will have as many distractions and again. They want to get to work. Don Gone so they're even more engaged because they don't WanNa have really miserable end of fiscal year because they didn't get any like during the whole month of April so that's that you're seeing that momentum GEICO and that's it plus. They still have their vacation this summer. That's who you want to still be able to take a breath and so at at the buyer level. What we're seeing that now love our customers are telling us but I'm also seeing this just from experience. The short term the next six months the company officers are getting a lot more authority to move things faster right and so one of the things that are kicking right now federal buyers. They have special authorities to do things without competition. I mean a lot of those rules exist but on top of that we have congress and the president who has expanded those authorities the ones that already existed busters new ones that don't normally exist. So here's this. It looks like a lot of things that you can buy with a government credit card in the old days last year. Thirty five hundred dollars limit for that. Well a couple of years I actually was the middle of last year. They bumped from thirty five hundred. Ten thousand that's a big deal now because of the Stafford Act which is basically. The president said is declared emergency. Now it's twenty thousand so what that feels like is it used to be able to get a government buyer to buy from coming officer. Otherwise this federal amalgam. I think my thing is federal federal contracts. Thirty five hundred dollars. Was there a limit on the credit card? Now it's twenty thousand just like that. We've removed a barrier right the next level up that we're seeing a change in the symphonic acquisition procedures which is your set aside just for small businesses in those of you follow along regulations. This is far part thirteen. You check that out just google it. You'll see a lot of this stuff. It these are purchases that are bigger than a credit card but they go up to us to be hundred fifty thousand and it was two hundred fifty thousand right now. It's seven hundred and fifty thousand in fact it's one point five million if you're outside the United States so you went from something that used to be limited to one hundred fifty k. And you get ten x that deal so as a huge barrier that went away top of that you have direct awards to edey contractors. We're seeing increase in called letter contracts and those vehicle a letter contract basically as Isaac. Entre nous officer. Okay I had this requirement and no you can do it. It's worded a lot of for example. A letter contract worth eight dollars and I said okay. I can give half the money. We haven't actually decide how much this is gonNA cost. But here's the money here's the contract. Go will negotiate it along the way and the way that works you. Have you have between ninety and one hundred and eighty days to definitive? The contract There's legislation in direction from for example. There's an air force An airforce acquisition leader who actually put out a letter that said he's encouraging they use more letter. Contracts is a need to keep the money flowing. The defense industry base right. That's that's what he's focused on you. People do in their own best interest right classic primers. They need to keep this thing. Moving need to keep these businesses on the other side of it so a lot of this stuff is kicking up. And here's the last one is. There's a letter in this. The Executive Office of the president in it said you convert officers have the ability to retool contracts to make them fit with the cove in nineteen needs are so what that could look like. Is You have a contract providing security services to federal government. The building that used to secure is no longer open. Because well it's open but nobody's in right but that's the security services contract so they can retool it and say okay now. I need you to protect the hostile needed to protect you know whatever and so the the work is going to keep getting done. And they're getting more creative and the contracting officers are getting so much direction that this is always the as and so for the people who are listening and sell to the government. Would you suggest they do so? The first thing I'd say is go too far apart. Eighteen further the federal acquisition regulation just Google far apart eighteen could acquisition dot gov in electrical number eighteen. There it's a shortlist it's actually pretty short part of the far and it lists all of the things that the government can do more quickly a lot of these things they can always do but now they're easier right so those are the things that you're going to see more of on top of that you're also gonNA see a couple of parts of that for reference to say these are the things that you can only do when there's a stafford act in an actual disaster of some sort. The other thing is think about if you're avid contract. Okay all right right now you need to get it done one of the things as a contracting officer to think through. I have five things I gotta deal with. Okay I have the what am I buying? I have the window I need it I have the how am I going to get it? Which that's the acquisition strategy? How much am I gonNa pay for it and then who is GonNa do it? I've got to have somebody that can actually do this right now. Those first four. I've got work arounds to them. I know what the requirement is. Because everybody's telling you what it is. The schedule I need it now. Everything I need right now the competition. I don't have to compete his much. Like how I'm going to do at the acquisition strategy is GonNa be thinner going to be shorter and then the price okay. I'm not going to count Nichols right now. I need to get this done but the thing that I'm GonNa Mail it in on and this is what we're telling our customers be very aware of the past performance is worried about. I gotTa know you can actually get this done is if I give you a contract to get this done and you can't do it. I'm going to do it twice now. Meet more frustrating again. People do it in their own best interests. What's in the best interest to me is a contracting officer is get this done once? We're going to the next one. The best way to do that is to work with people that I already know. If I don't have that in somebody that I know can do it. Which is why you see. A lot of known. Companies like Ford Motor Company's asked to make it make equipments because they know they can manufacture stuff if you're a startup and either manufactured stuff for the government before this is not the time to knock on the door and say hey I.

"Federal government actually sells a two hundred twenty dollar jar of peanut butter here is just six ounces of peanut butter in there it's like a tiny jar and it also goes by this incredibly catchy name you ready for it standard reference material number two three eight seven that sounds delicious why is it actually so expensive is it more delicious now it's the longest reason ever if this super precise like peanut butter with specific levels of amino acids and fats and carcinogens and is mostly used for quality control so companies can test their standards against the governments and make sure it measures up but as a result no one actually eats the peanut butter it's just for lab purposes which only makes me want to try it more like with a really cheap jelly well let's get back to deal W. let me tell you what Herman and his partners were actually able to learn from having the hot the tribe drink it laid on me well first let me preface this by saying that the hearts are the kings and queens of exercise every single day the men track miles and miles hunt for game with homemade bows and arrows they scale forty foot trees the hacked freelance with hatchets and gather wild honey other women for its all day for wild berries and other edible plants like tubers that they dig out of the ground with sticks even the kids of the tribe were put to work by hauling pails of water from a mile or more away okay so there's seriously active and no one sitting at their desks right definitely not but what the researchers found was that even though the house is lives are far more physically demanding the amount of calories they ate and burn through in the day was the same as you in Europe and the US and the men went through about twenty six hundred calories a day and the women burned through about nineteen hundred according to Herman we looked at the data in every way imaginable accounting for the effects of body size fat percentage age and sex no difference at all which is insane isn't it I mean that you naturally assume that physically active people would burn more calories of course but the research really doesn't bear that out in fact they did a follow up study with about three hundred participants and it showed the exact same thing the people who were the most active burn the same daily amount of calories as those who are only moderately I and the participants who barely left the couch it all burned about two hundred fewer calories than them the same amount they would have burned from a mere thirty minutes of exercise seem to suggest that our metabolisms are like X. like it almost seems like there's a preset amount of calories that your body is going to burn in any given day and no matter how far you've Reiner how many push ups you do you will be able to top that matched limit my bigger question is this why doesn't the hot the hunter burn more today than the average office worker well I'm not sure we really have the answer to that yet but one thing I've seen researchers suggest is that our bodies account for the calories burned through physical activity by dialing back on the number of calories we devote to the background functions that keep us alive about sixty to seventy five percent of the calories we burn each day go to these unseen are unconscious processes so it's possible that when our physical activity pushes us beyond that other twenty five to forty percent of daily caloric expenditure our bodies just cut back on the calorie spent on metabolic processes this would help even the scales and keep us from exceeding our preset energy budget for the day which is really cool but also disheartening right no wonder I've got this punch I feel so betrayed the hotel take it to heart so a fixed daily energy expenditure limit is likely involved treatment to help conserve our fat stores for when we really need them I mean imagine if the hot the hunters were free to burn through ten thousand calories during a hot instead of the typical two thousand or so if they were to come up empty handed they would have lost five days worth of calories and one with no prospects for replacing them at that rate their already limited fat stores will be depleted and no time and they find themselves on the brink of starvation which is a great point but still doesn't make you feel like maybe all that time spent exercising was I don't know kind of a waste one now hold on a second don't forget that exercise has all kinds of great benefits beyond weight loss for starters exercise is fantastic for your heart and blood vessels it makes your heart contract with greater force and frequency which increases blood flow leads to less artery clogging there's also plenty of evidence.

"Sports for reading the business side of new sports. On your host, your us. And I saw another amazing. Amazing article that was labeled. Can the billion dollar industry get some respect? Members of Congress can help, or at least as we thought, lobbyists are hoping. Not that long ago, some of the Congress went down and essentially played rocket league. which is not a normal title that you see and there was talk about how one of the representatives said. I wish I would have had the foresight to invest in this industry many many years ago. The fact that we are starting starring see politicians take notice is a great site. Call his right now. There are about three thousand scholarships being sent out in a Tolo Gillian dollars from hundred thirty different schools. And this has been recognized from the national. Association of at each sports, which is obviously very eastwards focus, but we need to start. Seeing is is how we're supporting this from nudge local side, but he federal side. This is a topic that gets low dover very regularly, and I believe that it's something that should be paying attention to. When you think of video games, and in terms of how the government affected while one is sports betting. That was a huge one. Maybe a year to go. There is a big bunch of news about that. In addition, you have to talk about subsidies. They're alive industries out there, including professional entertainment which are subsidized by the federal government. Does that mean that sports can be subsidized well? Probably, GONNA at least for a few years. However, what he can do is provide loans and funding. Maybe five or ten years down the road for not only teams, but for infrastructure or federal level there are sports stadiums all over the country. May those bill government funds in terms of grants or also in terms of direct capital funding? While I is that this is creating jobs. Federal Government realizes this so if there is a demand. For each sports sports half that several key components one of them being Internet. We look at the Internet many. Many places still have high speed Internet and we get streaming. You cannot stream with a megabyte of download speed by just play a game. What's really important? Is that yours? Out of speeds? There are many have ten or fifteen download, only one or two upload, which is not eatable with the federal government comes in. They can come in and say I will grant X. amount of dollars in order to fund this project in the name of East sports or communication, or whatever that may be regardless. It's a great opportunity for many obstruction workers as well as telecom companies. We'll onto the next is the hardware side that is your physical device or computer? Your laptop, your smartphone whatever you may be using. Not only does that provide jobs for manufacturing overseas, but also provide job for people. Selling those devices is well as small startups. That WANNA create better and better technology. Will they the relate to see moving forward is some government intervention in the name of East sports, many may hide behind that because to be fair if our congressmen or some sort of a federal representative or even state level representative. I'm not sure if I wanted to pouring funds for money. Into East sports out appropriately labeled it under the sake of. Telecommunications or something along those lines or even job creation when looking over at some of the other areas of the country. There is massive room for opportunities. So this will come in two phases. One is the large cities Chicago Dallas New York. San Francisco in many other places along those lines after that you will have midtown America, which will be places like Albuquerque where I. Anyone from one to three million people, not small, not large renton middle, and then the last phase will come in term of small town Merica. Where high speed Internet is not really billable today and to be honest. FEDERAL SHOULD BE FOLKSY WHY? One reason low cost of living if you are a strimmer and you currently stream from Los Angeles. Your average rent probably runs even with roommates well over fifteen hundred dollars living by yourself, probably closer to two or three thousand dollars. Is Streaming budget that becomes very tiresome very expensive. If you're living in Luscious, say some small town America in the Midwest usually have a red for less than one dollars. However, you're on the Internet support that those towns are already at a disadvantage. Anyways, that is what we're talking about. Today was the federal government funding of these sports. Hopefully seeing.
