12:30 pm
is often very dramatic developments only really i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk i as about ministration is continuing to stand with their strategy and i can't stand. president biden is laser focused on accomplishing the core national security objectives in the united states. and when it comes to f, canada stand, that was getting been lobby and degrading al qaeda. we accomplish that and he believes it was time for our troops to come. the taliban, however, is saying that this is their obligation or because they were behind the destruction of afghanistan during the 20 years. so now it is their moral obligation. it also helps to reconstruct afghanistan and to help the people to start a new life. a new chapter in
12:31 pm
a moral obligation makes one wonder if the united states actually calling the shots, or maybe they're just following orders. this is the pentagon cannot say whether or not they plan to keep a us weapons out of taliban hands. going to give you the end up, look at those who made their fortune off the war and i can stand. and if you are angry at the thought of the taliban now driving american tanks in foreign us weapons, what until you hear who actually paid for them to upset. because if you need to go the hospital, it might be a very long time before you receive any attention, as a nationwide staff shortages are causing more than just a headache. this as a new blood test, i tell you if you suffer from something called long and finally they say a crime doesn't pay, but mayor de blasio thinks you can pay criminals not commit any more crimes. i actually take, that's called the source. it will work. we will give you the details. i'm guy, no use and you're watching new shoes right here in our to america. that get started
12:32 pm
the who's in the game of war. there are winners, and there are losers with united states pulling out of afghanistan, many view the united states as the loser, and see the war and get a stand as a absolute total failure. however, there were actually some winners, and we're talking some really big winners to break out down for us to bring in our correspondence on deck. faren, winners, losers, good gray. so now bring us the list. who were the winners? so let's talk defense contractors, shareholders, the military industrial complex. so we've got some charts for you to look at here. so 1st we're going to take a look at boeing. we have boeing who had an, a total return of $97.00 point or excuse me, 974 percent. now what they did, scotty is this dividend channel drip calculator. they said if you invested 10 grand and 2001, how much would it be today?
12:33 pm
there you go with boeing, $107000.00. also as we keep looking at these, i want you to not really focus on the board member names, but look at their titles, former vice chair of the joint chiefs of staff. let's go to the next one. we've got raytheon total return, 331 percent. your stock would be worth more than $43000.00, a retired air force, general retired navy admiral for a deputy secretary of defense. we got lockheed martin, 1000 to 235 percent. how is that even possible? 100. 33000. your stock would be worth today or retired air force. general retired marine corps general. then you got general dynamics. you got 6625 percent. your stock would be worth $72000.00. and you have a former deputy secretary of defense and a retired navy admiral, even have james maddest there who we no former secretary of defense and a former marine corps general. and lastly, we have northrop grumman, $1190.00 per 6 per that more than a $129000.00. your stock would be and you have
12:34 pm
a retired navy admiral and a retired air force general. now, scotty, it's important to know that all of those companies accept for boeing. the vast majority of their revenue is given by the us government. so here we're not only helping fund a lot of use wars, their banking on them too. so it's one of these things where they now have this brown university cost of war project, where they're actually totaling the numbers to see how much we've actually spent. we have over 80000000000, excuse me, 800000000000. indirect war fight costs 296000000000 to care for our american veterans. now that that number, they show that includes lifetime care and disability. but as far as how much each soldier is making still have yet to determine. but we do have $85000000000.00 to train the afghan guard army and $750000000.00 given by the us taxpayer to pay for the afghan soldiers salary. so if that's not try me trying to bribe someone to fight. i don't know what is and then that have them turn around and kind of flee
12:35 pm
and, and as quickly as they did. but with $2.00 trillion dollars total of what this war is worth. what this war is cost us. that would be like paying $300000000.00 per day for 20 years. scotty. that is absent. and i think in time right out there where everybody's going, what were we there for? what were they say? terrorism that's very generic. know specifics are being given of what we actually accomplish in the area. i think right there is probably the most accurate numbers that were accomplished the last 20 years and why i think you saw this continued fighting happened within it, but wars are expensive. erin or offensive, what do we know about those in the past? well, we have english, you have england just paid off their world war one debt, believe it or not, in the 19 teens, they finally paid off their world war one. at the time it was 21000000000 december 31st, 2006. ok? then we had germany who had to pay world war one, repre reparations. again, this is in the 1900 chains. so they would be around $269000000000.00. it took them
12:36 pm
92 years to pay it off, scotty. they finally did it october, 3rd, 2010. but again, if it's going to be on the with germany, they got a little bit of help from the united states after world war 2 and letting them sell their debt to us to give off to england and france. but it's one of these things, scotty, where the american taxpayers are going to be paying this for a long time. he is, it's not like we're not already in debt. when you look at the several trillion dollars you had going into this 20 years ago, we were in debt. why in the world we even continue to spend the money? and once again, i think we're finding out the reasons because you have this evolving door at the pentagon and i am so tired of people not waking up and realizing why we sometimes get into some of these different theaters and these different arrangements that have nothing to do with american security is because of that reason right there, cuz somebody somewhere is making a few dollars around. like always thank you for bringing some light to this. got a joy and discuss this even more as ari veteran come, veteran and concert. come to your corey males, corey, i know you listened to parents report right now. i don't know if it makes your
12:37 pm
blood boil because you and i both know that those military right now usually are the ones that least taken care of. we look at what's going on, the veterans hospitals, we look at veterans housing. we look at actually housing on basis right now. they're absolutely deplorable. so why can't we get this right? if we talk so much of this country, how much we love our beloved military. why does it seem like these contractors make more that are actually military makes and why do we end up wasting the money in areas sometimes like what we've seen the last 20 years, they don't produce anything. well, 1st off, let me go ahead and say that. yeah, it does frustrate me, you know, it's been over 7 years in iraq has been over 2 and a half years and i was in kosovo pakistan. ukraine during high to these areas. so yeah, i see it now let me break down 2 things. however, if you're talking about military contractors with regards to those who are providing protection for protection on embassies or most security, you'll actually find it their day rate is cheaper than that of an actual deployed soldier. when you look at all of that personnel that's required to actually back
12:38 pm
him, now when it comes to those who are wanting to create and want to continue these in las wars and iraq is absolutely the company that you just described who are supplying materials and equipment and logistics maintenance contracts, spare parts contracts. i mean, these are guys who are making hundreds of billions of dollars and saw where, you know, lockheed martin has one of the highest lobby costs in dc. and what you see is that we need more patents and less millions. what's going on is that all of these people may meet that 30 year deadline, depending on those stars. they're already looking at what boards on the industrial complex they're going to sit on to make millions of dollars, basically advising and helping their body to are also in the pentagon, looking to rotate out into this more vision as well. so again, this is where they start putting themselves 1st and they start putting all the soldiers strategic elements in our national security lapse. and that's a big issue. well, and you know, and i'm just as much frustrated about the trying to dollars and that we put in
12:39 pm
ourselves into debt over fighting wars over the last few decades. but then you also talk about the cost of lives and those are truly process. i look at all of those families that had people were return not alive, not in, but in caskets, infuriates me right now when you put those in that these are just called for it, which is why i want to talk about the canister. because so much as i was looking at the veterans on social media and their comments, i have yet to see one who was not sad at how it ended yesterday. because so many of you lost your friends. you lost what you considered your brothers and sisters in combat over there and you're going, why did i lose this life for it? talk to me about i can't stand what went wrong. and when do you feel like it did over the past 20 years? what went wrong? the americans thought that we were in the business nation building. what we went over there to do in the very beginning. and i was part of that was to eliminate the terrorists who were responsible for the $911.00 attack and also stop it from being a safe haven to terrorism that have been done and perfected with c,
12:40 pm
t corporation irregular warfare, a symmetric warfare and special operations forces with the support of the intelligence communities, basically going on putting together a t t packet. we then got into this ship of nation building. again, a lot of that, as you mentioned earlier, is probably a result of these people who are sitting on these boards today. they want to continue to perpetuate this idea that we need to stay there and arm and build and defend and help to create a democracy. you know, because we're american are arrogant. see that every other country needs to model like us just never ends. that's why we see the same thing. we saw terry and violet re got no fathers 6 after the iraq constitution was put in place when it comes out vanish. dan, this was a lot. busy of plans to begin with and i, i tell all my bitter brothers and sisters who were out there and i brought back to my people who drink that american flag as well. but it was the suits, not the boots who was responsible for this failure. the taliban and all of the chairs networks and then we had to watch as americans, but they had the time,
12:41 pm
they never had to leave and they knew they could wait us out. that's why they're called the great yard of empires. and because we went in there and every single president came into power, continue to try and rubber stamp to put their name on things. and the reality was that what joe biden just did, he handed up pianos, santa china, china wants this for economic resource warfare. they're going to expose this as the greatest existential threat, and they're gonna create the one road one belt was going to centrally create your trade route, and they're gonna continue to expand with the help of other great research superpowers. corey, there's so much to digest on that. i wish we had more time for, but 1st i'd say thank you so much for your service. we're going to have you back on because i was going to have you want to talk about how you felt about the taliban now riding around and vehicles that you brought over there to fight them. but we're going to have to continue to segment later. thank you, once again for joining and when we return, we are going to shift gears as hospitals across the nation aren't capacity. while concerning. is there more than just the rise of covey cases to blame wherever the
12:42 pm
report after the break? the who knows, you know, borders and the blind number please as emerge. we don't have a therapy, we don't actually the whole world needs to take action and be ready. people are judge. 2 crisis we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is paid for the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are together in
12:43 pm
the whether the simple blood test can help identify whether you are suffering from long term effects of the cobra. 1900 infection. what credit to renew joint research by university of california and the university of cambridge, a blood test consumer via the 1st accurate diagnosis of symptoms associated with over 19. this is a long after the infection. i did want to say, i haven't had the full story. what happens when probably 1900 symptoms don't go away while mild, moderate cobra? 1900 symptoms last about 2 weeks. for most people in some people, lingering health problems can wreak havoc for months. that's what scientists call a long covert where patients experience lingering health problems, even when they have recovered from the virus. they range from fatigue, a loss of taste or smell, chest a non stop headaches,
12:44 pm
shortness of breath and fever. but in these patients, there is no longer live corona virus running in the body. if tested, the person would test negative for the virus, but still remain severely sick for months to 3rd, people who experience moderate corona virus symptoms end up with so called long covert. in other words, they still have symptoms for more than 30 days after their positive tests. and among those who test positive for coven, 68 percent experience, at least one symptom up to 30 days, their trash hold for long covert this increase to 77 percent. when the researchers followed up with people after 60 days, yet patients with these long term symptoms no longer show a positive covered 1900 tests. even anti body test would look for immune cells produced in response to infection are estimated to miss almost one in 3 cases. so
12:45 pm
imagine going to the doctor for these mysterious conditions and feeling abandoned or dismissed by health care providers or receive conflicting advice. but now there is hope the door to the 1st accurate diagnosis of long cove it is on the horizon. according to a new joint research by the university of california and the university of cam bridge. a new technique now identify a pseudo keane that is also produced in response to infection by t cells and is likely to be detectable for several months and potentially years following infection. scientists believe that this will help develop a much more reliable diagnostic for those individuals who did not get a diagnosis at the time of an infection. this blood test can also help identify where the patients immunity to the vaccine may fade over time, which will shed light on whether those who have been vaccinated will need boosters
12:46 pm
to keep them protected. and while more research needs to be done, scientists are optimistic of the blood test will be available within 6 months. for news views. hughes side have inger rti, i help later say a nationwide nurse shortage. come as a result of the pandemic. as many nurses have chosen to switch careers after suffering burn out of fatigue, but those who stay are still being placed in quarantine, if exposed. also adding to the reduction numbers is the pandemic motivated. many of them actually to retire. so what does this mean for hospitals in the mouth? they can care for before being considered capacity? who bring in doctor john brozowski, medical doctor at the washington pain center. thank you so much for joining me, dr. brodsky. thanks so much. always great talking to relating to ask you what is it like right now to be in the medical field in 2021 as compared to years past in regards not only with your own progress for dealing with staff issues like every other industry handling. well, we always enjoy taking care of patients,
12:47 pm
but now it's more challenging than ever. we always been appreciated, but i remember last year we were heroes and it's a great feeling, but it's gone on and on and on. and he had this tremendous drain on the system and people to begin to break without the proper support for their family or support at the work environment. i mean being a nurse is grueling work. i mean, physicians are difficult to, but the nurse is always at the patient's bedside to really good, excellent work with their care. and not only to look into physical labor in terms of lifting and pulling and tugging and all that. but it's mental labor, it's exhausting. so you can understand why this would, this would happen well, and when you look at the end, when we're going to run our privacy doctors, you go to school for lots and lots of years. you're not just going to give it up based off of a year or 2 brown, maybe some do that being said that with these nurses, the shortage of them does you think especially a viable and hospitals having this kind of less of numbers? did it?
12:48 pm
does that means they're going to be able to care for less patients? well, you're right to some extent, you know, there has to be a safety. we cannot overwhelm the system with run nurse, nothing care for patients. well now you can do 6, or now you can do a that clearly is unsafe and the in the nurse and the hospital mentorship, we're not going to do that. and again, an anesthesiologist is what i am. we know what safety factors are going beyond that . it becomes unsafe and we will never do that to a patient. so this is where we need to coordinate care, maybe with different hospitals. going to rewrite this hospice. overwhelmed. let's go over here except to have a better coordinate coordination of care, doctor, nebraska. and i have talked in the past, obviously about everything from vaccines to what people should really be fearful when it comes to cov, etc. right? now the big fear factor is these hospitals are overwhelmed, coven numbers are up, and that's what's causing these major runs for it. those are being used to justify a lot of cases. the locking down of cities, putting mask on kids mandates. all sorts of government policies are being made
12:49 pm
because these hospitals are overwhelmed. what are you seeing or you see that the hospitals are being overwhelmed? is it a fact that there's just more patients, or is there not a lot of the same amount of staff to take care of? what would be a typical number at this time? i think it's multi factorial, unfortunately is not one answer, but your point is incredibly well taken over the case or out the case or not. i don't care about cases. i care about death. i mean, people are sick, things like that kind of 19 and their own studies show this on the cdc is 99.9 percent recoverable. obviously, if you're over 7494 percent recoverable. so we have to look at what we're actually doing. are these patients that are in the system? are they all related a code that possible? and again, 50 very costly with these numbers because the cdc has given us numbers that might not have been genuine. they counted sort of sizes, coded motor vehicle licenses. cobit so we've done a little bit deeper. and when i do my own personal research in terms i see care and
12:50 pm
things, i guess they're not necessarily overwhelmed. they can pick the capacity. they don't want to be a 30 percent user, very expensive. they want to be at least 80 percent capacity, maybe a 100. they can go to a 120 percent capacity and still offer good care. well, in real quick, before i let you go, doctor nebraska, this is the 2nd wave of covert attending united states also having other countries as well are, we know the 1st wave hit a lot of these at risk and most risk of all the patients who is this 2nd wave really hitting because we're hearing obviously different variance. where are we still seeing at risk? maybe of a different demographic or it is still the very at risk the just got lucky and missed the 1st wave. i think we talked about, it's actually good news that actually you might catch it, but it's not legal or not as legal. so in other words, it's like it's like a cold or flu virus, haven't contagious, not as legal, covered 19 original one. you know, you could catch it and it didn't have the ability, but they're finding out each one of these various, the viruses are less and less potent with respect to mortality or mobility the
12:51 pm
but you know, it's only less well dr. breski always a pleasure to talk with you and thank you for actually bringing some light. i know it's not easy for some time for you to speak the truth and i really appreciate you coming on and saying it or thank you very much. a crime is on the rise while various merrier mayors are actually bad tracking from the to me to fund the police narrative marriage apply. joe has another idea. he would like to try to reduce the crime industry of new york city. now through his advanced piece program, the city will offer a $1000.00 per month stipend to young men involved in lethal firearm offenses. at the same time, they will pair them with neighborhood change agents. credible messengers, meaning they bring life experience, conflict, radiation, and mentorship skills to the target population. so basically, instead of sending these young men to jail, the mayor wants to pay them to go hang out with older ex cons, therefore, hopefully inspiring them not to commit any new crimes. now this program is not
12:52 pm
diblasio idea as it has been try and various communities in california over the past few years. stockton, 71 percent of its 34 percent participants are not suspected a new firearm related crime. also touting sacramento program couch 44 percent of its 50 members had no new arrest, but also didn't include the 17 original participants who dropped out arrested in the 1st 6 months. so will this actually work in new york? try me, discuss is retired at chief w, d u. s. marshal matthew fogg. thank you so much for joining me. good to be with you . so, what do you think of this idea is actually paying a criminal to commit a crime? the solution to the problems we're seeing in the streets today, where you got to do something and it seems like it's work. and i mean, when you're on the, on the surface, i wouldn't say why that's what i'm seeing, that it appears to be some results when you look at california, some the other states that is trying it. i think they also need the iraqi back on
12:53 pm
this one growth, you know, get simply just on people in depth because they got drugs. i mean, i think that the less that we take the profit out of it that's going to have made to impact when it's the same way to deal with this. but if you can come up with something for right now, that is, is that miss ring and some of these guys like they have by and maybe that will help to stop some of the murders. and some of the assaults when people knew that they couldn't go to the police for my wrong and stuff like that. so that seems to be like it's doing something i do appreciate i do like the idea of mentorships. i think these are these folks definitely. i think anybody that's in trouble always can use a good influence in their life, but then also to look at this respective. how do you think officer? so i mean, so many times, one of the least paid public and public servants in government is usually a police officer. sadly enough. how do you think they feel about if we've got all
12:54 pm
this money to pay criminals? what about the, the fact that we're not funding our police officers to sit right now back or taking funds away for a lot of these different department? well the bottom line, the law was the amount of the we built, one of the largest prison industrial complex is that the world is the thing. so the reality of it, we don't need a lot of police are just simply going to lock in people up and so on. and then becomes like a becomes complex and everybody is making money on it. lawyers, police 3rd by so you don't need as many please if you are able to give these people and they would give them job, make training available, things that mentorship or is they what has happened when we built that industrial complex. we took a lot of probably about a home, we graded a lot these paradigms that we see today. so i think you don't need as many police officers, i think less police and getting the job done. we can do that. but the reality is that there's more drug this guy got got you going to have a problem?
12:55 pm
you know, we got so many guys on the street now. i think every woman's voice out may have a gun and you have a surplus. so you got really good that the and my goal was always to say good back programs just money into the street. the battles guy got the reason i'm tell you people will bring those guns. but that's the way as you do extra by the guns away, which i understand that. but those are your encourage you more, more actual gun legislation, gun side with that actually solve the problem. or would we still see the bad guy with a gun and all we're doing, taking those guys out. good. how do you respond to that argument? well, the bottom line is again, this was a prohibition. i mean, like i said, it didn't work, but all we thought it balanced with please the law enforcement against the law prohibition. it's the same way with drug prohibition law enforcement. i was don't need to be tracking down people using drugs. we need to be going out the people that are raping and the major things instead of the lightweight stuff that we've
12:56 pm
got a lot of people, marijuana and all of that police officers involved and all of that type of stuff. so you start the racket down on this whole prohibition thing and start to look at what can we do to change these neighborhoods. and that's what these men and, you know, but allow them to be out there with their families and bring mentors. and i think you'll start to see a different, well that's, i'm all for legalization of drugs as long as we make sure that we cut the drugs out the streets at 1st sight and the source of them. i'm all for that. and 9 times 10 you find it's not coming straight from us. always a great to talk to joining me. and at that time we, i would say show, but i promise this is a conversation which we need to continue to follow or at got in the news and, and for they showed more download the fordable dot tv app for apple or, and device like always thanks for watching you later, ah,
