A highlight from TOP Crypto Pick For 2024! (3 Low Cap GEMS with 20X Potential)
"Injective protocol, can it reach $100 per token? This project's been on an absolute tear over the year, up over 500%. So here's everything that you need to know about this protocol and why it could change DeFi forever. It's time to discover crypto. So what is Injective and why has it been pumping so much? Injective is an interoperable layer one blockchain optimized for building Web3 finance applications like decentralized exchanges, lending and borrowing protocols and derivatives markets. It is built on the Cosmos SDK, aka software development kit, and its Tendermint consensus architecture, which gives it fast and cheap transactions, as well as make the blockchain interoperable through the use of the Cosmos IBC protocol. It also uses Ethereum virtual machine compatibility. Injective is attempting to bring the low fees, speed and cross -chain trading of centralized exchanges into a decentralized permissionless environment. It was the first Cosmos blockchain to offer fully decentralized order book infrastructure. Now, Injective was founded back in 2018 by Eric Chen and Albert Chan, who now serve as the CEO and CTO of the umbrella company Injective Labs. They were first backed by Binance Labs. They then went on to raise over $50 million in three funding rounds. First in July of 2020, where they raised $2 .6 million in an initial seed round. Then they raised $10 million in an April 2021 funding round. And finally, they added an additionally $40 million to the pot with another funding round in August of 2022. They also did the Binance Launchpad in October of 2020, where they ICOed, selling 9 % of their total supply for 40 % of the tokens. Then in 2021, they released their mainnet and launched their smart contract platform. Injective has investors like Binance, Pantera, Jump Crypto, Mark Cuban and many more. Ignore Mark Cuban's NFT plays. The Injective blockchain holds decentralized order books, which provide liquidity to the DEXs, a trade execution coordinator and a bi -directional token bridge and EVM execution environment. Any DAP that is built on the Injective blockchain has access to all of this. And the blockchain is public, so anyone can build a DAP as long as it's approved by the governance. While some DEXs use an automated market maker formula to manage liquidity, Injective uses an order book model that is similar to centralized exchanges. This means that the DEX on Injective doesn't need gas fees, so users only have to pay market maker and taker fees using INJ. That is where the utility of the token comes in. There are tons of applications in the Injective ecosystem, but we're going to be just going into a few. Injective's most popular DAP is a cross -chain DEX called Helix, which stands out from the crowded DEX landscape by offering unique features like zero gas fees, stop -loss orders, trading history and reward tracking. These elements give Helix the positives of a centralized exchange with privacy and safety of a decentralized environment. Helix can natively support a ton of assets like Cosmos, Ethereum, Solana and Polygon, and has an easy -to -use interface where you can connect a self -custody wallet or send your assets to your Helix portfolio. And people seem to like using Helix because it becomes one of the fastest growing decentralized exchanges since it launched in September of 2022, when it reached over a billion in cumulative trading volume after just one month. So make sure you smash that like button if you're an INJ holder. Not only have you seen a 500 % growth year over year, you guys continuously change DeFi in a positive direction. Currently, Helix has over 13 times that cumulative trading volume across all its spot and perpetual markets. And Helix just launched its pre -launch features feature, which allows users to trade futures on tokens that haven't even launched yet. Now, this is probably part of the reason Helix is pumping, because this additional service allows users to speculate on upcoming coins without having to gain access to pre -sales or launch pads. Helix has marketed this as an attempt to level the playing field for the general public since venture capitalists and wealthy insiders are typically the only ones who have early access to projects. Now, what else is in the Injective ecosystem? Mito Finance is another one of Injective's popular applications. Mito Finance is a DeFi trading platform that aims to democratize finance and increase profits through automation. Mito utilizes smart contracts to bring algorithms typically used by institutional investors and hedge funds to the common man. You just sign up for a vault and earn rewards, and Mito also has a launchpad that makes token creation incredibly easy. Now, while that might not be my favorite application, it is true. Institutions utilize medbots and have ways they can profit that retailers will never be able to access in their lifetime. Thanks to yours truly, Gary Gensler, regulations get harder and harder for retail traders over time. And then there's FrontRunner, which is a decentralized sport prediction market. What's cool about FrontRunner is that it allows traders to buy and sell shares of sports propositions the same way you would buy stocks. Now, you could buy and sell these positions in real time as the odds change. Like I said, there's a ton to explore in Injective's ecosystem, so go to their website and see what you want to learn about more. Since its launch, Injective has been chugging along with one improvement after another. In January, Injective launched a fund of $150 million to accelerate the interoperability between blockchains to enhance DeFi adoption and expand its ecosystem. The following March, Injective launched a testnet for Solana -based apps. And then just a few months later in September, it released a testnet for its EVM layer. This is a two -part solution that will allow Ethereum applications to now natively run on top of Injective. The other piece of exciting Injective news is that Injective will integrate into Google Cloud's analytics hub, joining the ranks of major layer one blockchains like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. This means that anyone using a Google Cloud server will be able to interact with the data across the Injective network. CEO and co -founder Eric Shen said that the Google Cloud team has played an integral role in the growth of Injective since its inception, and that this latest collaboration will help take Web3 as a whole to new heights. Now, all of these developments have led to the price of Injective just going through the roof in the past few days, going between $7 and $8 at the beginning of October to now nearly $17 in just last week. So if you're an INJ holder, congrats, because your bag basically just tripled. Now, what's interesting to me is that while other crypto projects are struggling to regain just a quarter of their previous market cap all -time highs, Injective has already shot past that halfway point and isn't approaching a brand new all -time high. So this makes me wonder, is Injective not only going to break its all -time highs while we're still coming out of a bear market, but is it going to just surpass them and show significant gains coming over the next month? Other than being a great investment vehicle, what are other use cases for Injective? The blockchain uses a proof of stake model, so staking your INJ can help secure the network, and currently staking rewards are pretty sweet. Coming in at just over 16 % APR, you get to choose one of their 126 validators and start earning free INJ. Currently, there are almost 45 million tokens staked, about half of the circulating supply, and now remember that staking never comes with zero risk. So make sure you do your own research and don't go to staking your savings. Now perhaps one of the best reasons behind the INJ pump is going to be the tokenomics. Over the bear market, their vesting schedule released the majority of the supply into circulation. Now seeing roughly almost 89 % tokens in circulation, this goes to show that there's not a lot of dilution moving into this next bull run. So if we have all of this development, all of these DeFi applications, and all these integration, that means we can see INJ continue to push to new highs without seeing VCs and insiders dump on retail. Now other use cases include governance, and if you have a stake to INJ, you get to vote on new applications and the direction of the blockchain. INJ is also used for protocol fees, as well as developer incentives. Now there is one thing we need to be cautious about. The total supply could still potentially increase over time, because Injective uses inflationary emissions for block rewards. Currently, the block time is 0 .82 seconds. The inflation rate started at 7 % with a plan to decrease that rate in 2 % over time, but Injective also has a unique burning process that basically ties the percentage of INJ burn to the popularity of the protocols on its blockchain. So if Injective gains more and more adoptions, there's a chance that the token will become deflationary in the future. So what we need to be cautiously optimistic about is, is this inflationary pressure going to dilute the tokens moving into this next bull run? Because like I mentioned, there is not a lot of dilution coming from the early vesting schedules. So if we get burning mechanics on top of that for more development, I don't know what the right word is, but pomponomics is the kind of what comes to mind. So what makes their burning process so unique? Injective collects 60 % of the fees its platform receives from the users and puts them into a weekly auction and burn fund, where it invites people to make bids on those fees. Bidders have to buy the native token, INJ, and use that to make a bid on the assets that are on the auction block. Then Injective burns the final bids. This decreases the token supply and also drives demand for the INJ token. I know this is a little confusing, so imagine Injective auctioned $1 ,000 worth of an asset, and the highest bid ended up being $800 worth of INJ. Whoever won that bid would then have an arbitrage opportunity with the assets they've won, and Injective would then burn that $800 worth of INJ. This is why the level of Injective deflation is directly linked to the popularity of the protocols that use its on -chain order book. So what do you guys think? Do you have Injective in your portfolio? Do you think this is a pump and dump, or will INJ keep flying to the moon? So make sure you turn on those post notifications, leave a comment down below, and let us know your thoughts. Is Injective Protocol going to change DeFi forever? See you at the top. Thank you.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is offering little to no clear answers on the next steps for government funding as the government shutdown looms closer. Jim Forbes has more. The speaker spoke to reporters Friday after House Republicans met for close to three hours in hopes of coming up with a plan to avoid a shutdown. I think we had a interesting conversation there, but we continue to work through trying to find the way out of this. I firmly believe there are no winners in a government shutdown. And I think that's the best way forward to make sure government does not shut down. McCarthy said he thinks a Senate bill without six billion dollars in funding to Ukraine could pass in the House. But he thinks Democrats would oppose it. The government is set to shut down Sunday morning at 1201 if lawmakers fail to reach a deal. I'm Jim Forbes.

But the Department of Education is saying if you don't make a payment, it's going to be OK. We won't report you immediately to the credit reporting agencies like they usually do. Come tomorrow, the payments that were paused for over 45 million borrowers during the pandemic.

"Per year. To put that into context there were only 45 million tons of CO2 captured earlier this decade. The Gorgon project was the largest polluter in Australia during the year through June 2022 according to data from Australia. So this thing is supposed to be reducing pollution is causing more pollution because they're not capturing the CO2. All of that pollution is being released into the atmosphere and it is essentially a huge problem for Chevron and they have buy to carbon credits to offset those emissions. and what does Chevron say about that so when you talk to Chevron they understand that there's a problem that this is a challenge and they're going to be investing more money to make carbon credits and that's what Gorgon gets to capacity and it's doing what it's designed to do. But when I talk to the engineers or when I talk to the specialists they're still proud of what they've accomplished they say hey look we're one of the few people in the industry actually capturing and storing credits more carbon and they're not not doing it at the level that they said they would but they said that this is not a pure technological challenge we've overcome a lot a lot of the challenges it's just scaling it up and Chevron for what it's worth they're putting their money where their mouth their is because they are investing and pushing forward with other CCS projects in the US they're looking at projects these projects in Europe and they've set up a essentially a whole new unit to look at developing CSS projects back in more carbon credits in 2021. Now one of the other problems for Chevron's Gorgon project is that it's built on a narrow island which is a nature reserve which means that they have to do a few special things there to make sure that they don't affect the local habitat for example the equipment that flares gas a normal part of LNG or liquefied natural gas production systems had to be separated further inland and surrounded by massive black walls all that turtles wouldn't think that the moon and use it to navigate at night and the plants birth which is like a jetty it's where the ships come and dock and offload and unload up the LNG runs abnormally on carbon credits. it does sometimes attract whales those bills and sometimes those wells can disrupt loading at the facility.

A highlight from 666:FTXs Multi-Front Legal War and Indias Crypto Tug-of-War
"Rockstar Energy punched, bringing a bold and unapologetic flavor packed with energy through a blend of B vitamins, guarana extract, and 240 milligrams of caffeine to fuel what's next. Rockstar Energy drink. Good evening and welcome to the Crypto Overnighter. I'm Nick Ademus and I will be your host as we take a look at the latest cryptocurrency news and analysis. So sit back, relax, and let's get started. And remember none of this is financial advice. And it's 10 pm pacific on a Monday, September 11th, 2023. Welcome back to the Crypto Overnighter where we have no sponsors, no hidden agendas, and no BS. But we do have the news so let's talk about that. Tonight we're diving into FTX's legal labyrinth involving a staggering 86 million dollars. Then we're shifting gears to India, Coinbase's hasty emails, government policy, and the central bank's digital aspirations. We've also got a bitcoin user who made a half million dollar mistake, a Hong Kong -based project revolutionizing decentralized identities, and the social media platform that's proving the naysayers wrong. Buckle up. Failed cryptocurrency exchange FTX is embroiled in legal battles on multiple fronts. The company filed a lawsuit against Layer Zero Labs to recover 86 million dollars transferred just before declaring bankruptcy. Layer Zero Labs accused FTX of making unsubstantiated claims in the lawsuit. FTX's bankruptcy filings have also revealed substantial payments to celebrities. The list includes nearly 750 ,000 to Shaquille O 'Neal, about 308 ,000 to Naomi Osaka, almost 206 ,000 to Trevor Lawrence, and about 271 ,000 to David Ortiz. These celebrities are now subject to lawsuits by FTX creditors. Layer Zero allegedly exploited FTX's sister company Alameda Research by demanding immediate repayment of a 45 million dollar loan. In exchange, Alameda transferred its entire 4 .92 percent equity stake in Layer Zero. The deal was considered highly favorable for Layer Zero. FTX also seeks to cancel prior agreements and recover 21 .37 million dollars that Layer Zero allegedly withdrew illegally. The company is exploring options to claw back funds paid to celebrities and sports teams to settle its debts. Now from my point of view, FTX's legal entanglements are a glaring example of the risks and volatility in the crypto space. The company's aggressive marketing strategy involving high -profile celebrities backfired spectacularly. It's a warning for investors and a point of concern for regulators. Layer Zero's alleged exploitation of Alameda Research's financial distress raises ethical questions. It also highlights the lack of oversight and the need for stringent regulations in the crypto industry. FTX's attempt to recover assets and cancel prior agreements could set a precedent for how companies in financial distress handle their obligations. It's a complex web of legal and financial maneuvers that could have far -reaching consequences. The unfolding drama reminds us of the dangers and rapid expansion without adequate risk management. It's the lesson for other crypto companies and a wake -up call for the industry at large. Lawsuits and bankruptcy are one thing but what happens when a crypto exchange throws a curveball to a whole country? Before we unravel this don't forget to hit that subscribe button to stay updated. Coinbase recently sent emails to some of its Indian users stating it would discontinue services for them after September 25th. The email urged users to withdraw their funds from the platform. The email was not sent to all Indian users but only to those who were found to be in violation of Coinbase's updated standards. This led to confusion and panic among Indian traders who took to social media to express their concerns. Coinbase clarified that the email was part of a routine review and was sent to users who no longer met their updated standards. The exchange also stated that this move does not affect users access to Coinbase cloud services. Coinbase entered the Indian market last year but faced several challenges including regulatory issues and the suspension of UPI support on the platform. The company also stopped onboarding new users from India earlier this year. Coinbase's actions come at a time when India is hosting the G20 summit where global cryptocurrency regulation is being discussed. The Indian government is also evaluating recommendations for regulating crypto assets. Despite these developments Coinbase remains committed to the Indian market and continues to offer its wallet services. The timing of this event and the ongoing G20 summit in India cannot be ignored. Is Coinbase feeling the heat from global regulatory discussions or is this a strategic move to tighten its user base and comply with evolving regulations? Either way the incident has sown seeds of distrust. Coinbase's selective email to certain Indian users also raises questions about transparency. What are these updated standards and why were only specific users targeted? It's a murky situation. Moreover the Indian government's stance on cryptocurrency is still unclear adding another layer of complexity to Coinbase's operations in the country. With the G20 summit discussing global crypto regulations Coinbase's actions might be a preemptive measure to avoid future complications. While Coinbase remains operational in India the incident calls out the vulnerabilities and uncertainties that come with centralized systems. Coinbase's recent actions in India have clearly caused a stir highlighting the tensions between centralized crypto platforms and regulatory ambiguity. But as we pivot from this snapshot of crypto's current standing in India let's widen the lens. Now we were just talking about the G20. It's not just the exchanges that are at a crossroads here. The Indian government itself is on the brink of setting the course for crypto's future and their decisions won't just affect the subcontinent. They're positioned to influence the global crypto landscape via their presidency of the G20. So from the individual worries of Coinbase users to the collective anxiety of the global crypto community we see that the issues are deeply interconnected. Both are waiting for India's next move which could either enhance financial freedom or tighten the government's grip. So here's what's going on more broadly speaking. India's finance ministry is set to decide its stance on crypto in the coming months. The country has been under scrutiny for harsh crypto regulations including taxes and anti -money laundering rules. However there is a shift towards possibly framing its own legislation, a first since early 2022. India is also working on a five -point crypto legislative framework. This includes advanced KYC for crypto companies, real -time proof of reserve audits, a uniform taxation policy, and possible authorized dealer status for crypto platforms under the Reserve Bank of India's guidelines.
A highlight from The Next MAJOR ATTACK On Crypto Has Begun!
"If you're feeling depressed or demotivated by this crypto pricing market you're not alone and this is probably going to be the most important show that you're ever gonna have to watch because I'm gonna put it all into perspective for you. A lot of people think that it actually may be about the price but it's actually not about the price because from a price point of view you can argue that we're actually doing okay you know like Bitcoin is still at 26 ,000 if you take where we've come from from the beginning of the year we are still 67 % up which is not bad for a pre -harving year so it's not about the price. What it is it's about the sideways chop movement combined with these ongoing attacks that we have to endure in crypto all the time and if you look at the latest attack that we've got in crypto it's now the SEC actually coming after NFT so it's like it feels like whatever we do whatever innovation we make whatever we try and and come up with the SEC just comes out and attacks us and you know this is really really really what the depression phase is about it's it's almost like death by a thousand cuts it's not that that quick death where the prices go down but it's actually at this death by a thousand cuts and I saw this tweet over here I'll actually show you this tweet over here so I saw the tweet and it show and it shows us this Wall Street cheat sheet around the altcoins and if let me let me actually make it a bit bigger and you can see but you can see that it feels like we're very very very much now in the sideways slightly going down getting into that depression phase and the problem with this phase is that this phase is like running a marathon this phase is about the fittest survive this is about the people who have the most stamina and most people actually fall out in this phase of the market that's why it's called the depression phase it's a phase that is designed to test your staying power it's a phase that is designed to test your conviction in this market and let me tell you in the last bull market in the last bear market I dropped out towards the end of this phase and was one of the biggest mistakes that I ever made because by the time I got back I got back and I'd missed half the run but lucky I got back in time and I still managed to make some money problem is with this phase that this phase can actually last very very very long in fact if we look at the last time that this phase happened I saw a tweet here let's actually look at where this tweet is that it could take up to 400 I will look at it during the show but it could take up to 400 days for this phase to pass it's really gonna be a big test it's important that if you are feeling that way if you are feeling like you're losing a bit of interest this is the show that you actually want to watch this is probably the most important show that you ever that you that you're gonna need that we've made at this time and I like this tweet because what this tweet says it really summarized says says time -based capitulation is now in full effect no new inflows daily addresses are stagnant developers are capitulating NFTs are trending to zero the only true believers the patient and the redacted remain this is the actual opportunity zone but today is gonna be about capitalizing on the actual opportunity zone and making sure that we don't capitulate that we don't land up like all the other channels I'm gonna show you a lot of a lot of the things that I've done I'm gonna show you a lot of the things that I'm looking at that keep me motivated to be here to be making content every single day so let's do it guys and let me know in the comments what you're feeling let me know how you feeling in the comments let me know if you're feeling what I described let me know if you're feeling the effects of the capitulation phase of the depression phase let me know if you wake up in the morning and don't really feel like looking at your crypto let me know if you questioning why you're still around and maybe even looking for other investments or maybe other places to put your money and if you're maybe looking for other jobs I know James and Josh that I know that I know that they're looking for other jobs also because I get I see the internet access and I see that they very much on job sites I saw that James was on some gems are gay porn job site I mean is that what you want to go now bro are you forming a coup I'm gonna be looking for are you gonna do the same thing you're gonna do the same thing that bit boys team did to bit boy I mean I look let's just really talk for two seconds about this whole bit boy thing and we did speak about it yesterday I really feel bad for him because he has spent a long time building something amazing I mean he built 1 .45 million subscribers and I mean his team must have been really really really pushed to get him out I saw that they published a statement yesterday after our show after we broke the news right here on banter we said yesterday BJ investment holdings the parent company of hit network took decisive legal action in removing Ben Armstrong from the company and specifically the bit boy crypto brand this difficult decision is a culmination of a prolonged effort to help in during his relapse into substance abuse as well as the reconcile emotional physical and financial damage he has done to the employees of hit network and bit boy crypto look it seems to me I mean I read a couple of things here the first thing is they had a legal leg to stand on to get him out of the channel which is kind of strange because I would have imagined that he's a shareholder and if he is a shareholder how do you get a shareholder out of the channel like that's quite a big thing I always thought that Ben was actually one of the biggest shareholders in bit boy crypto how do you get a majority shareholder out but if you read between the lines of there obviously it's some legal leg to stand on the other thing is it felt to me or it looks to me like they really really really tried hard to help him and to get him right like a prolonged effort to help in during his relapse into substance abuse as well as to reconcile the emotional physical and financial damage done the other thing is that we haven't heard anything from bit boy and usually bit boy is the loudest voice in the shed I've texted him a few times and let me not lie to you and actually just check if he has responded to any of my texts usually he would get back to me very quickly when I when I texted him I think now maybe slightly different could mean that he's in rehab could mean that he's just been told by his lawyers not to say anything maybe listen either way as we said very very very publicly yesterday he came out as I said Ben is not owned by hit Network Ben being the coin or bit boy crypto it is managed by separate entity controlled entirely exclusive are Ben Armstrong and Duchess of DeFi who's Duchess of DeFi let's follow her so that is what he came out and said look we came out yesterday and we said I like the people at bit boy crypto they're hard workers with a great work ethic TJ and all the guys they are very hard workers with with a with a great great great work ethic I really hope they succeed in building the business we will help them wherever we can and one of the things we're actually thinking of doing let me know if you think it's a good idea or a bad idea but to help the guys on the channel because we really want them to stay alive and to survive this so one of the things that we are pushing or what we will do to actually try and help them is we actually gonna have a viewing party where we actually just log on and actually watch their show with our community like we do when we do the FMC so basically we'll just log in we'll create a stream and our stream will actually watch their stream and hopefully that'll give more people exposure to that channel and that will help the channels recovery because I really want to help them as much as I can I really think that these are good people who've really tried hard to build a business and you know addiction is a bad thing addiction is a really really really tough thing and we can't judge someone because they have an addiction I know some people don't understand what addiction is and they think that addiction is just about you know maybe having a bit of an extra drink or maybe taking one extra opioid it's not that it's when you come reliant on it when you become reliant on a substance it's very very very very very hard to get off and we're gonna do whatever we can to help the channel and help them get on their feet we'll even go the extra mile to to do that so yeah so let us know what you think in the comments also listen if you're new to our channel and or if you've come over from the bit boy channel to our channel subscribe to our channel welcome anyone's welcome here I also like this content let me know what you think of my idea to try and help the bit boy crypto team someone says addiction here is tough yeah we're all addicted so someone says have fun storming the car phone we all have addiction we're traders you know it we right we all have addiction we are all traders the problem is that now in crypto we ain't getting our dope immune fix that's the problem here we ain't even you know like we came to crypto because we like volatility we came to crypto because we like action now there's no volatility there's no price action there's pretty much nothing I mean let's look at let's we can look at the bubble so if you look at the bubbles not much happening today pulse down again I'll never I'm never gonna see my money out of pulse Tommy one of our sponsors up ten point three three percent flex is down seventy one percent now I really hope that if you had flex you did swap it for the the open X tokens because as far as I understand if you had flex and you didn't swap it for the open X token that means that your your token is actually now worthless and it is I mean if you didn't swap it is as if today users can no longer convert flex to open X during the token migration over 35 million flex was converted by users issue I have here I think flex is a hundred million tokens in circulations which means that 65 million people sickening supply 100 million 98 million that means that that 65 million token holders didn't actually swap unless that's part of the the company Treasury so as I said look if you look at the bubbles it's getting depressing we came here because Oh Casper's getting to a nice level hold on a second hold on a second whoa whoa everybody hold the phone Wow three point two cents for Casper this is maybe nibble territory this is maybe this is where I would maybe look to start nibbling into Casper maybe after show maybe after show I'll start in the bling into Casper so anyway going back to it and going back to what you said going back to what you guys said is we're all addicts here we come here for the dopamine rush the problem is that now we're not even getting the dopamine rush on the show it's boring there's nobody left here there are no more bulls everyone is bullish everyone is bearish no everyone is gone and that's the truth of it if you look at it everyone is starting to go you got the volatility the Bollinger levels they've been ever this is the lowest the Bollinger bands have been ever ever this means that we're at a point now where the volatility is gone and that is what was keeping us here in the market now the truth is anyone who's been in a market for long enough knows that when the volatility goes when the volatility comes back up there is an explosive move but the problem is will you be around to experience that move which is almost inevitable I'm going to show you why that move is almost inevitable the other thing we're seeing is that searches for crypto have gone down to absolute zero long story short no one's interested anymore people in crypto are starting to pivot out of crypto I even saw my good friend CTO Larson who by the way I love he's starting to make videos on Nvidia you know and and you know James has always made videos about about stocks it just shows that not much going on and as a result of the fact that not much is going on well that's this is this is what what we're dealing with now this is this is what we're dealing what we're dealing with now the volume has gone down to an all -time low I also saw this so the pace of USDC art flows in an average week they issue 1 .1 but they were deeming 1 .4 billion dollars worth of stable coins which means that actually money is actually starting to leave crypto and I'm going to show you in a second where that money is going and why this actually may be a good thing but important for you to note that you know you're not alone here because money is actually starting to leave crypto because I think it's because of the bottom because of the the the the sideways the sideways returns and stuff like that now what you got to know here is is this is the time when champions are made and I want to show you something here so this is the time where I read this tweeted time capitulation is in full effect new no new inflows the daily addresses are stagnant devs are capitulating NFTs trading to zero only true believers the patient and the redacted remain this is the true opportunity zone and what what keeps us here is you've got to have your eye on the prize you have to keep your eye on the prize and say no matter how tough this race is you have to get to the finish line of this race why because you've been here for so long and I'll never forget eight weeks before an Iron Man eight weeks before the Lisbon Iron Man I did I had a phone call with one of my friends I'd never swung before I could hardly run and I was I was quite a good cyclist and I had a phone call with one of my friends and he said to me I said hey what you know what are you doing it's I'm training for Iron Man I said where's the Iron Man he said no the Iron Man's in Portugal in Lisbon I said I'm in I went to a swimming teacher and I jumped in the pool swimming with my head out the water swimming teacher says to me I said can you have me ready in time for Iron Man she said yeah definitely I can have you ready in time for next year April which is the Iron Man in South Africa she said no I said to her no I said the Iron Man is in eight weeks she looked at me said you got no chance truth is though kept my eye on the prize trained and trained and trained and got to the race now as I arrived at the race in Portugal my wife phoned me said I'm going into labor with you with you she was in South Africa I was in Portugal my wife phoned me said I'm going into labor my son was about to be born I probably shouldn't have gone away because my wife was due that week and there was no way I could get back so I said to go to the doctor and tell the doctor to keep the baby in somehow what she basically did anyway the next day was Iron Man it was the hardest race of my life I was completely completely completely unprepared but what did I do I just focused on the prize I just focused on finishing the race getting the medal getting home and and and and going to watch my wife give birth and actually here is just to show you actually I'm not around a motorcyclist but I actually did manage to keep my eye on the prize and actually managed to finish the Iron Man and it was not a great time with six hours and 40 minutes but I managed to do it I managed to do it and I had to wear that those lycra's and shit like that so I guess the what separates the the boys from the men what separates the real athletes from from those who can't run and can't do anything else is the ability to keep the eyes on the prize and block out the noise in this time and if you look at who's actually keeping the eyes on on on the prize I read this tweet over here which is hearing rumors of pessimism creep into the market and certainly feeling it with friends that I speak to just a friendly reminder that the largest asset manager on earth are fighting to front -run each other on the ETF approvals for the spot Bitcoin ETFs and futures -based ETH ETFs you've you've just had validation the validation you dreamed of for years with respect to TradFi embracing fully the crypto future without even inclinations to embrace token with even inclinations to embrace tokenization of equities commodities and other sectors TradFi has never been more bullish whilst those who are crypto natives have never been more bearish now TradFi know how to keep their eyes on the prize BlackRock know how to keep their eyes on the prize they know that this is just a function of cycles and in a cycle you're gonna get ups and you're gonna get downs and unfortunately now we're going through a bad part of the cycle we're going through a bad part of the liquidity cycle and I'll show you in a second how that is how that is is affecting you but what what you can see here is you can see that what these guys are doing in the background is they are actually buying the miners okay so BlackRock is passively buying up miners for their index futures funds on behalf of clients because BlackRock is I think the was it the fourth BlackRock is a shareholder in four out of the five largest public crypto miners and I think it's the number two shareholders yeah BlackRock is ranked number two shareholder now ask yourself a question is BlackRock buying these mining stocks to flip them or is BlackRock buying these mining stocks on behalf of their clients because their clients are bullish on the future of Bitcoin it's exactly that their clients are bullish on the future of Bitcoin and that is why BlackRock is taking the opportunity to fill up their bags at a time like this so these guys are experts at keeping their eyes on the price now how long is this is this depression phase gonna last bad news is this depression phase may be like the Ironman that I ran six hours and 40 minutes of hell on the road okay I'll tell you one of the stories I finished this the swim I finished a cycle after the cycle you got a 21 kilometer run so you've just cycled for four hours or three and a half hours and then you've swam for 38 minutes and now you get out and you got to start running it was hot and I was running and there were a lot of supporters in Lisbon in Cascais and they started pouring water on us because I wanted to keep us cool but the water was going into my shoes and I was getting blisters I was getting bad blisters now imagine it's your first half Ironman you're running you're getting blisters it's the worst day of your life it is the longest race of your life now that is where we at at the moment this thing can last long I mean I went back to see how long this period was in the previous in the previous market and here it is if you take the top to the next time we breach that high 491 days it took 491 days okay now look maybe we've maybe we've we've we've got less in fact if you look at at this thing over here he says if we were to do the same thing we still need to go for 384 days to create a higher macro high and break 31 ,000 for good now I think that that's the worst case scenario I think that the markets changing the market structures changed but I mean you've got to keep your eyes open you got to keep your your eyes you got you got it make sure that you have enough enough gel packs and make sure that you have enough food and whatever else you need to go that distance and look maybe we go that distance maybe we don't go the distance but regardless make sure that you guys are packed make sure that you have whatever you need to actually run the dress we'll be here running with you well we will as a community we will all run together and when one of you feels one of you feels like like you're falling out we will all help you get back we will push you we will carry you we'll put our arms around you we'll walk with you we'll make sure that as a community we all get to the end of the race that's for sure we're gonna be a it's not about winning the race yeah it's about making sure we all get through this race together so that's it as I said there's a big boys the guys that are race fit the guys that have done a hundred Ironman because one thing one thing I saw when I was doing the Ironman is there's a big difference between people like me who came for the first time and people that have done this a million and one times the people that have done this a million one times they run and they look super relaxed and they smiling at everybody people like me who haven't done this before I was suffering I kept looking at people thinking am I gonna collapse is he gonna collapse is everyone around me those that had actually run the race many times those that were experienced they were smiling they were having a good time they knew exactly what was it and that's exactly what's happening here with Blackrock that's exactly what's happening here with all the the investors for me for you for everybody else here for every for all of us this is our first Ironman race this is the first time that I've seen contracting liquidity and increasing liquidity I didn't pay attention to liquidity increasing global liquidity increasing you you didn't pay any attention to global liquidity increasing but there are people that have done many many many of these races and they have been paying close attention to these liquidity cycles for a long period of time and they know that this is exactly a part of the liquidity cycle right now global liquidity is down when global liquidity is down and risk assets go down that's what it is there it is you can see it over there they also know that liquidity is a function exactly a function of Bitcoin is exactly a function of global liquidity here is US financial liquidity regimes and here is the price of Bitcoin the red indicates decreasing liquidity the green indicates increasing liquidity it's simple liquidity Bitcoin risk assets crypto is a function of liquidity right now global liquidity is decreasing because the u .s.
A highlight from Is Elon Musk A Bitcoin HERO Again?
"If you use the four -year cycle, that means November -ish, October -ish, we would just be hitting $60K. So I don't know if we can go from $60K to doubling in two months or, you know, I think we're closer to $60K at the end of 2024. I like Bitcoin. You like Bitcoin? I like it. Alright, we do have a $4 .99 Super Chat from Corey. Cheers! Just put $2K into XRP and Algo. Love the channel. Alright, I feel pretty good about that two years from now. But if it's in the red a month from now, don't blame me. Blame that guy. Alright, no, we're kidding. Alright, Twitter partners with eToro to let users trade stocks, crypto as Musk pushes app into finance. Now, again, Elon has denied these rumors, but it looks like starting Thursday, he'll give users the option to buy and sell stocks and other assets, the company told CNBC exclusively. Maybe Elon is more rejecting the idea of the everything. But this is a rare partnership deal for Twitter since he took the reins as CEO. He's made it his mission to call it the super wrap here. They'll allow him to access stocks, crypto, and other financial assets with the partnership eToro. And with that, the cash tags will be expanded to cover far more instruments and asset classes, an eToro spokesperson told CNBC. eToro is founded in Israel in 2007, and it's an online brokerage that allows users to buy and sell stocks, cryptocurrencies, and index funds. Do you own any index funds? I might buy my first mutual fund. I don't know anything there. What's interesting here is going to be who ends up winning this battle. And you know, in the article, first of all, the first thing we should mention is the source of this information is a kind of sketchy one. We talked about him yesterday. It's Semaphore. We know Elon does not like Semaphore. He's one of the ones that outstid Semaphore when it comes to the situation happening with the Binance and now the U .S. government ordeal. But they are the ones breaking this news this morning. And they reference eToro and Robinhood because these would be the only two options at the moment unless Elon builds a brand new platform. These are the only two that would offer what's being rumored that they're going to do. And I have a question for the audience. I mean, a question for you too, Deezy. Which would you prefer him to use, eToro or Robinhood? They have their pluses, they have their minuses. I can't get over Vlad looking so much like a vampire. I'm just going to go with eToro off that very baseless and auspicious reason. Do you know the fees on eToro for crypto? I haven't. I've never used eToro, so I could not tell you what the fees are like. I bought Dogecoin once in my life. I went and got eToro to do so. eToro on crypto charges one percent for every buy and every sell. That's pretty rough. Now, I'm assuming there's a maximum, though, too, right? No, just blatant. You're confirming if it's a million dollar buy, it's 10K. At least you're confirming that. There's no on their website. Coinbase has the levels of like, if you buy this much, it's different. I think it's a $25 maximum. It just says one percent across the board. OK, one percent. Corey, he's going for the two years from now outlook. All right. All right. We have a video Elon posted in the wee hours of the night. This is about seven hours ago, maybe six hours ago. Let's play that thing. Do we have sound? Oh, yeah. I mean, he's just kind of chatting. Hang on. This is Elon having a good time. Here we go. Surprisingly cheap ceilings. Really? Hey, guys, you're on to welcome. He curls at forty five. All right, let's see. Not a hundred pound weight, Mike Kilmer. He's he's curling Zuckerberg's weight, right? Me, swelling of forty five. He did it pretty easily. Yeah. So there you go. Maybe he's working out, folks. Do you think Elon's working out? It looks like a video feature is working better. I think he is. I think he is. All right. Better than the sort of eight. All right. Now, yeah. Elon, he's he's definitely one of the the main memers of the Internet. Here we have a little graphic one app to rule them all as the X, you know, looks pretty close to the eye of Sauron. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. All right. Well, what are your thoughts on the super app? Would you like to have a super app in America or do you like, you know, everything kind of being separated? So it's less worry of a all out attack, less points of danger. Fair point. You know, when you spread it out, there's there's a little more security with that. But just think about the ease it would be to do everything on the one place. And I want it. If there's anyone out there that I believe that can get this done. It is Elon Musk. And if the rumors are true, because again, right now we're kind of in a wrestling match is is Elon actually doing this platform thing that everyone's like, he's starting his claim to be that one one site. That's the end all be all of everything he says before. He thinks that X could take 50 percent of all the financial actions within the next couple of years. I'm like, basically, that's insane. He's capturing the West. Yeah, that's how I read that. We chat is going to capture the right. He's probably not going to be able to make any serious headways within China. You know, they've chosen WeChat. They have backdoors and WeChat. Of course, the CCP is heavily involved in all WeChat encryption issues or lack thereof. And so I think he's going to try to have the super app of the West. Yeah. Now, Chad, who do you think is going to win? Is it going to be Jeff Bezos? Is it going to be Elon Musk? I think it's going to be one of those two. I think Mark Zuckerberg might really try once we have the Ray Ban ocular. You know, he's going to try to take over with the AR angle. I think by then it might be too late. And we're all just going to kind of be used to sending money with our phone. Do you really want to send money with your glasses and you're like touching the air like send Tim 20 bucks or the burrito? You know, I don't know. I think people just rather do beep boop boop and then send it with their phone. We're going to briefly interrupt this. I just want to give a special shout out to our sponsor, Steak. Big shout out to Steak. We love it. Elon does have the walrus move advantage, just saying. I mean, that is a tough move to beat. It's going to be I mean, it's a serious move. It's up there with like rear naked chokehold and the figure four leg lock, I believe, and the torture rack. It is up there with all those. Yeah, I'm betting on Elon between Elon and Zuck, although Zuck is very, very capable manager, obviously capable CEO. I think Elon is just a little bit more capable. And I think he gets the the the changing shifts of culture a lot better than Jeff Bezos. Here's my Jeff Bezos impression. That's a funny joke. Ha ha ha ha. And it's just it comes off a little unnatural. And Elon just seems a little bit more real. It seems like a more real human being. Elon would use the Elon would be in a fight with with Zuck and he'd do the oil check. OK, yeah, I can see that those who don't know the wrestling oil check is, you know, you're putting the finger, you know, dipstick check in the oil. Folks, it's like in Free Guy. Great movie. Great movie. All right. Let's move on and talk about Bitcoin. Most people want to talk about Bitcoin. Kelly Boy like the torture rack reference as Lex Luger, I believe. All right. Bitcoin whales accumulate. All right. That's two wrestling references. No more. Don't worry. Bitcoin whales accumulate. Fifty nine point two percent of circulating supply data shows. So the whales have 60 percent of all the corn post analysis revealed that a relatively small cohort of addresses is amassing a considerable amount of the currency circulating supply with a total of fifteen thousand addresses, each holding over one hundred collectively commanding eleven point five million coins. What is important to realize here? There's a lot of centralized exchanges. So you take out Binance wallet, you take out Coinbase wallet, you take out eToro wallet, you take out Jack's blocks, eight thousand Bitcoin wallet. Then it starts to look a little bit more decentralized. But, you know, a lot of people are OK holding their Bitcoin on a centralized exchange. I wouldn't recommend doing it in any serious, you know, heavy manner, any high percentage manner. But a lot of people like the convenience. I you know, I have a OK amount on Coinbase. I'm not going to chastise you for that. It's worth noting that the total number of addresses created on the chain has recently surpassed the one billion mark. Although out of these addresses, those with the balance are only around 45 million. Those most created addresses do not currently have a balance on them. Moreover, London based banking and financial services firm Standard Chartered has suggested that the price of Bitcoin could surge to 50K this year and then could breach 120K by 2024 is close. And another major bullish price prediction for Bitcoin. I don't know if we're going to go that high. If you want to, you know, rewind four years, December 2020, we just hit new all time high. We just hit 20K. If you use the four year cycle, that means November ish, October ish. We would just be hitting 60K. So I don't know if we can go from 60K to doubling in two months or, you know, I think we're closer to 60K at the end of 2024. What's your year in 2024 price prediction? Yeah, I know it's you know, you probably need to think about it a little bit more. I'm throwing it out there. 69K. Yeah. Well, the first thing I'll say is 50K is not going to happen in 2023. Barring we find out about Bitcoin ETFs within the next couple of weeks. That's probably the only thing left that would be able to pump it that high. And even that I don't think would do it. Those things take a while before the real money comes in. End of 2024, I think there's a decent chance that before the end, we might double top of that 69, maybe set a brand new all time high. But if we're asking December 31st, I don't know. Like I think we'll be wrestling close to that area, but I think it'll be a little lower. All right. Will you watch Zuck Musk cage match? 70 % are saying yes. All right. Bitcoin holdings on over the counter desk decline. 33 % OTC desk balances are widely considered a proxy for institutional activity. Still, caution is warranted when drawing conclusions. Those held in addresses tied to the OTC market. If you don't know, the OTC market is a whale wants to buy a billion dollars worth of Bitcoin. He doesn't go into an exchange and clear the order books where his first Bitcoin is $2 ,000 cheaper than his last Bitcoin. He's going to go to over the counter person who wants to sell a billion dollars Bitcoin. And they don't want the first Bitcoin they sell to be $2 ,000 more expensive than the last Bitcoin they sell. So they have aligned incentives. And so they'll meet in a park with some briefcases, you know, they'll sit down with the newspaper. I don't I don't think it works that way. They meet in a hotel lobby in Dubai, and then they like open up their balances, and then they do it that way. It just makes it where, you know, they settle on a price and they don't impact the markets too much with these large, large purchases. As of Thursday, the so -called OTC balance stood at 5 ,000 Bitcoin or about 150 million of the market cap. And that's a 33 % slide from the one year high of about 7 ,600 Bitcoin at the end of June. So that's going to fluctuate. High volume traders and institutions typically deal with OTC desk to avoid affecting the market price of the asset. For that reason, activity is said to reflect the behavior of large, sophisticated traders. In the past, some analysts have associated upticks and downticks in OTC desk balances with miners' intentions to build, run down their coin stash there. So just something to watch out, but I wouldn't worry too much just yet, just because it's down 33%. Really not too much when you're comparing it to the all -time high for the year there.
You Don't Need a PhD to Master Card Counting
"Card counting isn't impossible to master. You don't need a PhD in statistics. In fact, one thing that makes card counting hard isn't the actual counting, it's something else. To dig into this, let me introduce my guest today. I think he's the world's most well -known card counter. With almost half a million subscribers on his YouTube channel and 45 million views in total, Stephen Bridges is probably the most recognisable card counter out there. Here he is introducing himself. Yeah, my name is Stephen Bridges and I'm a card counter, which basically means that I legally beat casinos at Blackjack. So I play high stakes and I film a hidden camera show about doing that. And I get into all sorts of trouble with the casinos whilst trying to beat the game. Now, some of you listening might be wondering what card counting actually is. Maybe you're like me. Maybe your perception was that card counting was a myriad of formulas and equations, incomprehensible to a layman like me. Well, it's not quite like that. So in essence, card counting involves keeping track of the cards that have been played in a game of Blackjack. And keeping track of them gives you an idea of what cards are remaining and what cards are likely to come. And then you can use that to gain an advantage over the house. So specifically in Blackjack, if there's a lot of tens and aces on the way and you're playing Blackjack perfectly, then you can gain an advantage. So in those situations, I'll bet loads of money. And when I don't have an advantage, I'll bet the smallest amount of money possible. So this really is playing the game in an unconventional way, although it wouldn't be considered cheating because you're just using the same information that all other players have access to at the table. And the thing I usually mention when anybody asks me if what I do is cheating is I'd say, can you name any game in the world where thinking too much or thinking in a particular way would be considered cheating? And usually the answer is no. And it's just imagine playing a game of chess and being told, oh, you can't think four moves ahead. Three moves ahead is fine, but not four moves
David Bossie: Zuckerberg Investments Aided Joe Biden During Election
"So they targeted Democrat heavy Democrat districts to turn out the Democrat What did they do with this money in these districts Did they work with the local government Did they that they put did they direct these local government entities to do something if they wanted the money How did this work That's exactly what they did Mark you're so smart What they did is they gave grants to the secretaries of state and to the county officials and they stipulated that in order to keep the money in order to not return it they because they had clawed back provisions in the contracts They must do the following things And that was to provide drop boxes to assist in ballot curing to do the mail in ballot programs All of these things to help Joe Biden and so in Georgia as an example $45 million went into Georgia But most of any state in the country I wonder why 94% of that 45 million bucks in Georgia went to Democrat Biden districts And they only won by really win there by 10,000 votes And then Arizona in the funded counties versus the unfunded counties in Arizona The Biden funded areas outperformed Hillary Clinton by 700,000 votes Biden didn't even

Dave Wilson there with our speaking of things. That sound great with our small caps, report. Speaking of things that sound Well, maybe not so great. Yeah, this one little bit disturbing. Leslie Patent joins us right now from Bloomberg News. Leslie, you got a story out about KFC and full disclosure. I love fried chicken, betting that Americans want fried chicken made from plants. I don't know if that's a good bet, is it? Well, it's very trendy right now to be talking about plant based So I think a lot of a lot of that is driving it. But at the same time, I mean, aren't we talking about different people, The people that trend towards plant based and the people that trend towards KFC aren't those two very different groups of people. Well, KFC doesn't think so. They think there's at least some overlapping. They're you know, they're not saying it's never going to take over for fried chicken, not even going to be the majority of the market, but they want to have something there. To give customers that option is this faux meat thing and faux chicken Now, I guess. Is this it a demographic thing, Leslie? Is it more kind of the younger folks trending this way? Yeah, That's what that's what camp. He has told me that it's the younger crowd who feels a little bit better. Maybe eating this way. So they're looking to capture that younger crowd who will be coming of age and have more spending power in the future. Obviously. So I think that's what's driving. A lot of it also. So, um, What are we talking about? Like a chicken sandwich made with plant meet. Are they going to try and actually replicate, you know? Real fried chicken breasts is going to be the same shape, but just a different substance. Well, the gold standard I'm told is like a chicken like a whole muscle piece of chicken. So not like A chicken nugget, this all shaped and kind of like mashed together. That's not what they want to do. They want to do something that whole muscle that kind of like tears and pulls apart like a chicken tender from kind of like Of fans here, you know, like like a bar restaurant type place, maybe maybe even a sit down place, So that's what they're really trying to replicate with this. They haven't really brought anything out to the masses yet. They've done some tests, but we're kind of just waiting to see if they're going to have something. At a national scale or not. Would they be the first in the chicken category? Or is Chick fil a beating them to the punch, so to speak? Well, they would be the first one to do what I think on a national basis. Yes. It's interesting, and I mean, we've seen this with other fast food. Non chicken fast food restaurants are I mean, I see I know. At least Burger King has got a fake meat burger, and I'm assuming that all the other ones do too. Yeah, That's right, you know? So so there are some tests right now, it seems like especially in the U. S market. There are a lot of companies kind of dipping their toes and this feeling it out, seeing what sells what doesn't sell, and I think a lot of it is really geographic specific. So we're going to see more tests, whether this stuff really sticks or not. I think it kind of remains to be seen right? So I guess the issue is you know, when we hear from beyond me, they say a big part of their customer base is people that are, in fact meat eaters. They just want some Diversification, if you will, is that similar to what KFC thinks might happen with the chicken market. Yeah, I think that's right. So, so thinking about it, you know, it's the people who are eating plant based Are people who are also eating meat. It's not necessarily a vegan or vegetarian. So with somebody who wants to do like a meatless Monday or something like that, so there could be some overlap there, but again at the same time. I think it remains to be seen. How much How much this stuff. Can really make up in sales, you know, is it? Is it going to be 2% of sales for KFC? Is there going to be 10%? I don't know. And I think they don't really know either right now. Lizzie. Thanks so much for joining us. Leslie Patent there who wrote the story on KFC betting Americans want fried chicken based on well, It's not chicken. It's uh, I guess a fried chicken shaped thing based on plants have you seen by the way there's a 1992? Non narrative documentary film, meaning it's kind of an art film. They just have shots of. I'm going to say no. Before you tell me this title, but it's called Baraka B A R A K A. Barack Ah. It's an amazing movie, and it was like the kind of thing that we would all you know, I guess late night parties, we would put it on in high school and college. And, but it's got segments about crowded cities and segments about a cigarette factory. Remember segments about A chicken plant where they just had these hundreds of thousands of chickens on a conveyor belt, you know, like getting their beak spurned off and separated into different piles and You know, I can safely say I haven't seen that. It made me not want to eat fried chicken anymore, But I recommend watching the film. I bet you Nathan Hager has seen it. Let's get over to him right now. In Washington, D C with your world National News, Nathan suddenly lunches sounding a lot less appealing, and we're only about an hour away. Thanks, Matt.

There's some good high school broadcasters out there. Sure there are. They just weren't running the Baylor game. Yeah, they just were okay. But anyway now I'll be honest. I think the NFL is officially fake news. I think it is on its decline. You do? I think they should just close up shop. Okay? Yeah, they're going to shut down a multi billion dollar business because you think, Hey, I told you they're only as big as the box manufacturing industry in the US, which is a shocking fun fact of the day.

"I hope you are enjoying this conversation about something that is A part of all of our lives. We live here in America. The Constitution is The rules we wrote down And we turn to it all the time. Informally and formally to figure out how we're doing and how we're either living up to or failing to live up to what is said before ourselves and the world. Jeff Rosen, CEO, president of the National Constitution Center. Um, in not just our history, but in world history. How important is the Constitution? Is it describable how important it is, It's the greatest and most endurable. Document of human freedom in world history. There's no written constitution that survived so long or proved so successful or durable. It's since do we appreciate that enough as a country? Well, I don't think we can appreciate it enough. But where will the way to appreciate it is to reflect on the alternatives. To think about the freedoms that it protects to recognize its weaknesses, strengths and failings. That's an important part of the process of perfecting out of making the union more perfect, but ultimately accepting and celebrating it as a framework for deliberation that it doesn't sound as um Stirring as the words of the declaration pledging our lives and fortunes and speaking honored to rebellions, Germany or or even soaring, uh, words of the bill of rights. In the 14th amendment, Congress shall make no law respecting, you know, freedom of speech, but simply being able to deliberate peaceably. Rather than taking to arms and slaughtering each other. Is a tremendous achievement in human freedom. That's not been the case for the great democracies of ancient Rome, which fell as the framers recognized and ended in, uh tyranny or oligarchy or Bloodshed. It wasn't the case for the God It's no established UDS religions that govern the the monarchies of Europe for the middle Ages, and even the Enlightenment. We should we just can't take for granted the fact that we have a framework where for all of our polarization for all of the Twitter extremism for all of the, uh, the the passion that we see every day, generally with with the exceptions we've talked about, like July six Americans don't take up arms and try to shut down the government. They're willing to accept Supreme Court decisions that they disagree with. They're willing to accept. Election results they disagree with. They must be willing to accept that if the system is going to work, and that's a tremendous achievement that that is worth celebrating. So you live at this intersection of Research about reverence for an education about the constitution. It's my sense, but I could be wrong about this. That the Constitution itself has become a kind of polarizing document more in the last 10 years than it was in my memory. Before that, I could have that wrong. I'm just curious. I think the Constitution is the unifying document. There's no question America, of course, has become polarized. Okay, There's an awful lot of polarization about the meaning of the Constitution. As we see in the Supreme Court where there are, you know, important 5 to 46 to three decisions, but we've just ended a Supreme Court term where the court has been unanimous at a higher rate. And at any time in recent history, even despite the the the passing of Justice Ginsburg and the addition of justice, parent and we saw, remarkably, the triumph of Chief Justice John Roberts is hope. Of presiding over narrow unanimous opinions. Judd joined by justices of different backgrounds, All those unanimous decisions or nearly so 7 to 2 are unanimous. Upholding the affordable care act recognizing religious liberty, Recognizing the free speech rights of that cheerleader on Snapchat are all a triumph of the idea that the Constitution and the courts that shouldn't be polarizing and in order to maintain their democratic legitimacy. Citizens have to recognize the judges are not Politicians and robes as justice, Breyer said in a recent speech and that the constitution transcends politics. If you're still with us, you care about this topic, and you care about the Constitution. So I'm going to give Jeff a moment to do a commercial on behalf of the National Constitution Center. Obviously you can visit it, obviously, but you can interact with it. How and what can they find? Thank you for the opportunity to plug this. Amazing learning platform friends who are watching. It's so exciting that the National Constitution Center has launched this interactive constitution. Uh, it's gotten 45 million had since we launched in 2015 were not the most Googled Constitution in the world. 500,000 people a day were visiting the interactive constitution during the electoral college disputes and on this incredible Non partisan document. You can find the top liberal and conservative thinkers in America, writing about every clause of the constitution, describing what they agree about and what they disagree about. It's just a model for civil dialogue and learning. You can find the podcasts and videos and programs that we host every week that bring together liberals and conservatives for civil dialogue about the constitutional issues in the news. You can find early drafts of each constitutional provisions and see how they evolved. And maybe most Excitingly for for the future of constitutional education. You can find the videos of the live classes that we are now offering on the Constitution kind of civics, one on one classes for middle school students, high school students and adult learners. It's so meaningful to be able to teach these classes and and share this light and learning. Um and it's wonderful that, um people across America can access them to free so I'm kind of a pro at this and what I've done is I've set up a springboard that I hope Jeffrey will jump on with relish and vigor. And the Supreme Court is this you've had and invited to this process. Liberals, conservatives and libertarians to think up and a draft alternatives to our existing constitution. This may take up all of this segment and our next segment. I don't care how long it takes because I've read about it. It's fascinating. There's the springboard, Jeff Jump. I'm happy to what an amazing project that was, As you say, We convene three teams libertarian, conservative and progressive of really well known scholars to draft constitutions from scratch and the results. Really surprised us. Far from completely throwing out the current constitution. All three teams proposed to reform or refine it, rather than totally abolishing it. But what was even more surprising was the areas of agreement. Remember, these teams didn't talk to each other. They went off in the state of nature of the state of Zoom and basically talked among themselves and they came back and it just blew our minds. The Conservatives and progressives both proposed Two amendments with nearly identical language. One of the amendments would have abolish the electoral college and replaced it with national popular vote with rank choice voting for president. And the Second Amendment would have 18 year term limits for Supreme Court justices. Now I just reconvene the teams and ask them. Do you think if we brought you back and you met in person at the National Constitution Center could you actually agree on the wording of the constitutional amendments that you know we could then offer as emblems for Consensus and, uh, for the world and they're up for it. So next year, we're going to convene in Philadelphia, bring these great three teams together and hold an actual mini convention. We were talking about the rules. And we think it has to be at least partly in private because Madison thought the original convention wouldn't have worked if the delegates couldn't have deliberated, Uh, you know, in private and made compromises, but part of it, of course, will be recorded and then we'll see what we come up come up with. So it was just an amazing project. There were really interesting areas of disagreement, of course, as well. Uh, the libertarian team emphasized Liberty. Unsurprisingly, progressive team emphasized democracy inequality, and the conservative team emphasized the Mattis Sony in values of deliberation. And I had lots of particular provisions that they disagreed about, but that that's central agreement just really surprised everyone and convinced me that there really is far more consensus about basic ideals in this country than 45 seconds before the next break. Did the libertarians have a thought on the electoral college one way or the other? Yes, the head of team will return said, Um, He, uh, thinks that it encourages nationwide campaigning and their general philosophy was, um, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. And the main principle that they wanted to embrace at the end of each constitutional provision was and we mean it right to enforce the Constitution as Mhm. Oh, and we mean it. Uh or as my Children you supposed on their doors? Stay out. This means you, Um Jeff Rosen is our special guest president, CEO of the National Constitution Center. More of our conversation about the Constitution, America and the future both when we get back Segment four coming up I Major Garrett is to take out.

"All right, Uh, let's talk about the related topic of how crime is spiking in the state of California and people feel less safe. Now there are two diverging. Um divergent, uh, concepts for what we can do about this. On the one hand you have the Democrats. Who say the best way to deal with crime. Are you ready for this? Defund the police. Defang the prosecutors. Released. Criminals from jail. Downgrade senses Eliminate cash bail. Um Yeah, that's pretty much all the stuff that they've got, and more on the other so, yes, and take away the ability of law abiding, uh innocent civilians to protect themselves. By gutting the Second Amendment. They tell you that you can trust them to take care of everything. In that environment. I say Hell's now stop coddling the criminals and let us Have our constitutional right of self defense. Uh, On the other hand, you've got Republicans who are pretty quiet. That's all I can say. Those are the two divergent views. Now there are groups like San Diego County gun owners and Course, this show and some good leaders that are out there who say that? Not only do we need to improve policing and expand it, but we need to punish criminals. You do the crime? You do the time. No more coddling. We need to nip it in the bud when it's early when people engage in petty crimes. Um, that's the broken window theory of policing, which has been so successful in this country in improving safety. After about 20 years of crime being driven down in this country, and most importantly in this state and in San Diego, we've seen crime Spike. In the past several years. That coincides with the adoption of the Democrat policies here in California and in places like Chicago and New York. You do not see crime increasing in states that did not implement these coddle the criminal policies. You see the crime skyrocketing in only certain locations. Run by Democrats who have implemented these policies. In San Diego. We've had a 38% increase in murders in the past year. Let me repeat that in San Diego. We have had a 38% increase in murders in the last year. In Los Angeles County. This is sickening. Um, there are homicides are up by 95%. Were up by 38% here in San Diego. Homicides in Los Angeles up by 95%. Grand Theft Auto up by 40% rape up by 8%. Aggravated assault by 13% arson up by 22%. They just elected a brand new district attorney George Gascon, who said, I'm not going to prosecute people. I think we've been too hard on criminals. And of course, they just cut Over $140 million.45 million dollars. From there. Police department budget You think any of this has anything to do with the spike in crime? I do. But of course, the left. Deflects and the media. They don't want to cover this. Because the blood is also on their hands at that point, because they've been cheering on phone ease like Gascon. They've been saying black lives matters Absolutely right. We need to defund the police. Cops are bad. They're Racists. They're bullies. They're brutes. In Los Angeles. People are now starting to talk about private security. Oh, yeah. It's a thing. Private security Apps citizen announced its actively experimenting with a privatization service for law enforcement services in Los Angeles. I'm kind of curious. How are you going to do that? If you don't have the second Amendment, you're going down 911. They're going to send a social worker. Good luck with that. But the rich might be able to hire personal security. The politicians haven't given up any policing or private security. In this environment where things are at risk is happening and crime is skyrocketing. So you know my take on this, but you have tragedies like the one in Orange County. The shooting of that little boy on his way to Aid in Leo's on his way to kindergarten class back in May 21st Two suspects that carried out that crime that heinous crime have been arrested. They were arrested yesterday. And of course, people on the left are now saying this is another example of why we need gun control. Coming up. Uh, let me tell you what really needs to happen in response to this tragedy, And the last thing uh, that it needs to be linked to is undermining our second Amendment rights coming up on the divine report.

"They have a great offensive line they draft. Well, I think it will be kind of the next evolution. Of some smart front office ng. You know what? We're not going to pay our quarterback or offer him 45 million, or 50 million, or 55 million per year, say in four or five seasons. We're going to allocate is much of our money to either just continuing to draft Ah young quarterback and putting him in an amazing environment or offering this quarterback 25 or 30 year, which might be a bargain. At that point, I do think we will get to a point where because the league is becoming more wide receiver, dominant. I certainly think that quarterback is the most valuable position on the field, but with teams really loading up a tight end and receiver and past catching back heading to the efficiency Of that position and the offense in general, I think some team it will be interesting to see if it would be a fun case study. Well, if they ultimately said Hey, you know what? We're in an amazing environment roster wise. We could plug in any type of quarterback and we're going to get good. Play from him because of our receivers and our offensive line. So I do think at some point in the next few seasons will see somewhat of a cap on it in terms of how much per year Quarterback is averaging on that second contract. Crystal Paso on the Western Hotline one more before let you go, Chris. All right, So Julio Jones the You know, power rankings around the NFL. I think the general consensus Puts bills Top four, You know, you see Kansas City, Tampa Green Bay, Buffalo. There's anybody else that's crept into the top four. I'm not even sure who it might be The Rams maybe. Is there a team that with the acquisition of Julio would pass the bills in your eyes, And I guess the second areas if it's New England. How much does that closed The gap? If if you think it closes it enough. Two teams. I would say the Cleveland Browns or the Baltimore Ravens. I don't really think the Browns have been speculated to be in the Julio running, but they signed you leaving Clowney when no one was really expecting it. Because I think the Browns have a great offensive line. It's one of the best in the league. Baker major kind of settled in as this game manager and They have Odell Beckham Jr. They have Jarvis Landry, but they're a little bit older. This would be another example of, you know, teams loading up a receiver and that you don't just need to good receivers. Today. You need three or you need four. They've added so many pieces on the defensive side in the secondary, that Brown defense kind of held them back a little bit. So I think if they all of a sudden could line up Julio Jones and Odell Beckham, that would be one of the most complete teams in the NFL and then the Ravens. Just because we know the defense is good. They like to blitz. They have a very complex team defensively. They lost in pieces, certainly in free agency, But I think the ad Julio to that offense that you know is going to be an elite running attack because of Lamar Jackson because of the offensive line that running backs If you could also add Julio Jones to really diversify what they do offensively. I think that would be All of a sudden the Ravens would be right there again with the bills, A Z in the league team in the NFC and in terms of the Patriots. I think he would certainly move the needle for any team. I don't see it as much with the Patriots. I think you know on the defensive side because of No Bella checks presence still being there and they're getting back from opt out players. They will be improved. And I'm kind of with you, Jeremy. I think Cam Newton will have a better 2021. But the only concern that I have with him is that if there is a two game, Stratos, where he doesn't really play very well or you looks like 2020 Cam Newton that there will be a lot of push. C. Max Jones on the football field, and I just still think that that team offensively even with Julio Jones is still ah, clear two or three steps behind what the bills can do in terms of scoring points. Um What they would bring in the past game, which we know that's you know where you live and die in today's NFL. I'll ask you a question that I was asked by the afternoon guys yesterday. What team in the A F. C. If they were to get Julio would really bridge the gap, the most to the bills. You know, if you if you were assuming, and you know you could tell me if you don't think this Kansas City one bills, too, and then Everybody else behind them. What team Getting Julio would bring that team closer to the top two. Probably the Tennessee Titans. Uh, to lose Cory Davis to lose Johnny Smith. I think they're looking like a team that's a playoff contender they lost at home to the Ravens in the playoffs last season. And they first good as they were utilizing play action because that's very efficient. They do want to run the football with their Kendari a ton, and I think if you had three superstars on offense, if you had Derrick Henry a J. Brown and Julio Jones, you would make life even easier for Ryan Tannehill. They Spent most of their picks in the draft on the defensive side. That was kind of an issue, but I think it could be a team that could really score a lot of points and a lot of different ways. When right now they're looking at. Hey, we really have a J. Brown. Derrick. Henry. We need that third member of our triplets if they ultimately got that s O. I think Italians right now are a good team. I think they're clearly a tear. Below the bills, or probably to below the bills in the A F. C and they're probably still behind the Browns and the Ravens. But if they signed Julio Jones, I think that would make them Team that maybe wouldn't stop anyone but would be able to score 28 30 points a game and we know in today's NFL, That's what you ultimately need to strive for. Scoring around. 30 points a game to be a top level offense, I can get to a Super Bowl. Mr Paso on the west or hotline, Chris. Thanks again, as always, and hope to see you soon..

"To be held responsible for that? You sacrificed How many lives you sacrifice? How much of our freedom globally you said, you know, I mean the economic ramifications from this or catastrophic. You just simply have to be held responsible in some regard. But this wasn't I'm glad we're talking about this because it's in the news today. You and I first spoke a week ago. And this wasn't even the topic. We were originally planning on covering today, So I'm gonna have to bring you back cause I don't know if we'll have enough time to cover this other thing, but shifted focus for just a minute. You're known by a lot of people in libertarian circles in the Liberty movement is being very sharp investor. We can all see what the pandemic did to the economy, particularly when it comes to real estate. People can't buy houses fast enough right now. Are not traveling. They're not going on vacation. But at some point this moratorium on evictions that some federal judge just challenge last week is going to be up. Something huge is about to happen to the real estate industry. What happens when people who aren't paying their rent or mortgages or evicted all over the country? And similarly, what do you think's gonna happen with the office spaces all over the country that are virtually empty right now. Well, the commercial real estate market is a disaster so that one I think is gonna result in massive amounts of foreclosures in the faults and bankruptcies, and I think you'll see hedge funds that had real estate investment trusts that were heavily leveraged that were in the commercial real estate space. They will either go bankrupt or or they will receive bailout from the federal government. Obviously seeing The current administration. You would imagine it's going to be. The latter will probably be bailout. However, the residential side is not risk free, either. There's currently there's only a million houses for sale nationwide. Now there are 4 to 5 million houses that are in foreclosure, eviction or moratorium, which means that legally you are not allowed to Take back your property. If the bar we're stuffed. Thanks. So what I envision is 45 million of these houses likely at least half of them will hit the market. That'll help the cool things off. The biggest concern to me right now is the fact that inflation is so rampant. That the Federal Reserve at some point, in my opinion is going to have to increase interest rates. When that occurs, you should see just a massive wave of default. Because these mortgages are on Lee. Affordable price levels are only affordable because you can borrow money. It's such ridiculously low rates. If that changes even slightly if we go up to a normalized rate of 5 5.5% The values of the underlying collateral. The values of these homes would come plummeting down. So that's that's my concern is that not only will these houses from the lifting of the foreclosure and eviction moratorium hit the market, but simultaneously, the Fed will likely have to increase interest rates, and that's kind of a perfect storm for a repeat of Oh, wait. Oh, none If you just get into it, and I'm talking to clamp the creator of Liberty of pop, lock down a popular libertarian podcasting Forum online clear we've already gone laid on this segment, so just give me a quick answer on this last question here. I'm an optimist. Stein. No people in our movement are very pessimistic. Haven't optimist. I'm a glass half full guy. Is it possible? Is there a chance that the business real estate crisis the fact that all these office buildings all over America are awful are empty. That is that that could actually kind of unintentionally be the solution to the high housing cost me. Maybe some of these office buildings around the country get turned into apartments or condos. Do you see anything like that happening? I think that's certainly a possibility. But it would require a flexible city ordinances. And that's you know, as as usual, the government creates the problem. And then they get in the way of the solution. If they will get out of the way and allow for zoning variances where commercial real estate can be converted to apartments and condos and sold up. I could see that actually alleviating Both sides of the issue, so it's possible it's possible. The free market could have been the solution to a problem created by the government. But I think we both know the government's going to try to solve it anyway. That is Clint from Liberty Lockdown. Final link to his page on my Twitter account. Quick break, We'll be right back.

"Now correspondent John Hunt bringing you up to date on where we stand on the Corona virus, and the flew more than a year after the pandemic started covered. 19 is still ravaging some parts of the world. But now scientists are warning that another virus could be a serious threat. Over the next few months. Influenza this season two flute virtually disappeared with under 2000 lab confirmed cases in the U. S. According to the CDC. In a typical flu season, the U. S would see more than 200,000 confirmed cases by this Time of year, which is a tiny fraction of the true number of cases estimated to range between nine and 45 million annually. Scientists and public health experts say. Covert 19 mitigation measures like social distancing and masking may have helped to stop flu transmission, according to scientists, like Dr Andy Pesca, professor of microbiology at Johns Hopkins University a year without much flu could lead to a year with a whole lot more flu than ever, Pesca said. We've gone over a year without significant portions of the population getting infected and No immunity. Because of that.

How vaccine inequality is endangering the world
"With that anniversary one year ago today when the World Health Organization officially declared the covert 19 outbreak, a worldwide pandemic when a year on and 2.6 million people have died worldwide, and the economy is in tatters. There is also hope, because Kobe vaccination drives under way more than 100 countries with more than 300 million doses of ministered, but who gets vaccinated, for example, there around 80 million refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide. Will they be included in vaccination plans where they live? Filippo Grandi is the U. N High Commissioner for Refugees and his current in Uganda. When I spoke to him, he started by telling me what impact the pandemic and lockdowns have had on refugees. Where I think the impact is severe and will be even more severe is more on the economic side and in lockdowns, which prevail all over the world. We've seen an escalation off poverty if you wish in refugee and displaced community all over the world from Lebanon, Toe black in America, the Venezuelans toe Afghans in South Asia and so forth, So this is really the key challenge that we have to face now. We know that the key to getting out of the pandemic. His vaccination aren't refugees at the end of the list of people who are going to get vaccinated or too often, well, that was very much our concern, especially refugees. Refugees are not nationals off the country's they're in, and we were worried that because of that they would be marginalized. You know, there's been some good developments. I am in Uganda is speaking to you from Kampala and here, for example, today the vaccination begins. I was with the acting prime minister this morning He was going to be vaccinated and he was keen to tell me refugees will be included. There's no question about that. You can the host 1.5 million refugees. Almost the pandemic has the underlying the inequalities that disparities Throughout the world on one of those is that the richer Western countries of vaccinating at a much higher rate than poorer countries, and yet so many of the world's refugees, Aaron places Like where you are right now, you can do that slower roll out in places like Uganda is undoubtedly going to effect refugees, isn't it? You're absolutely right. George. Vaccination programs have to exist and to be rolled out to include refugees, and this is where really the enormous inequality of the international system has appeared. Very carries. The tent of March is the first day that you can to a nation of more than 40 Million people is receiving its first vaccine when in rich countries. This has been going on for several months. So this inequality is blatant. This needs to be corrected. We are active as an organization in those initiatives that aimed at securing a minimum amount of doses. For poor countries and our role there is to ensure that some of those does is go to the refugees as well. But frankly speaking, that effort is not enough to correct that huge imbalance which is really short sighted. It's not only wrong, it's shortsighted. It's a bit like refugees and nationals in the country if people in poor countries do not get vaccination. This is a global issue. It will backfire everywhere else so then more vaccines and needed and more needs to be done to deal with, as you say, the social impact of the pandemic on Refugees in particular. He's a difficult questions, and there aren't presumably easy solutions to them. But what are a couple of things that could should be done to make progress in this sense from the very beginning off the pandemic? I've reached out personally to the leadership of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. These institutions have led The establishment off economic rescue packages for countries impacted by Corbett and lockdowns, and my message to them has bean first of all to accelerate. The disbursement of those packages so that this country's are more protected, but also to ensure that vulnerable groups are included actually are considered as a factor to increase those packages. In other words, take Uganda again. Uganda is negotiating. If I understand with the I m F one such package and the message that I will pass through the eye, meth and other similar institutions is remembered. Uganda has what 40 45 million people. It's national population. It has almost 1.5 million refugees. These needs to be factored in, especially in countries like you can that that are very inclusive that include refugees in education programs in health programs that extend to them efforts to create livelihoods. This additional burden that these countries have needs to be considered when this economic packages are rolled out. This is not always the case. Look at Lebanon, for example, where one in four people is a refugee. This huge political tension in Lebanon over this refugee issue. I'm very worried that rescue packages being rolled out and Lebanon has many challenges may not include refugees, and this would be catastrophic for this huge, vulnerable population in that particular country, And this example is valid in other countries as well. So yes, More complex, I would say even then the vaccination inclusion.

Democrats in Congress are pushing for more than $50,000 per person. Here's NPR's A Listen at Bernie. Joe Biden has made it clear $1.6 trillion in federal student debt is a problem, but the question of how much of it to cancel is still on the table. Let's take a look at the plan. The president supports canceling $10,000 in debt per borrower. Borrowers who have the lowest student debts are the ones who struggle the most. Adam Loony, is an economist at the University of Utah. He says. Not all debt is the same. Borrowers who completed a bachelor's often have higher debt burdens but are able to pay that debt back. The ones really struggling, are the ones in default. When you're in default, the government can take your tax refund or part of your paycheck. When you get older, you can even lose part of your Social security. Roughly eight million borrowers are in default, and most of them have less than $10,000 in debt game out that you borrow is largely dependent on how many years you enroll often students who who dropped out after a semester or a year or two. Just don't accumulate very much dead. If you never got that degree, you can't get a job to help pay off that debt. Loony argues that anything higher than 10,000 and cancelation runs the risk of rewarding borrowers who don't need help. He points to research that shows 36% of student debt is owned by the top 20% of income holders. But income is different than wealth. Households with student debt tend to have the least amount of wealth. That's the value of all your assets minus debt. Now, let's take a look at the plans to cancel $50,000 in student debt. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer are among those behind this idea. They say a more forgiving cancelation policy is also about racial justice and would target gaps in wealth, especially among black families. Black households are more likely to have student debt and more of it than white or Latino families. The student debt crisis, It is disproportionately impacting borrowers of color in Camille's of colors, black borrowers in particular. Actually, Harrington is the senior policy council at the center for Responsible Lending. So when we talk about cancelation, we have to start there. Black borrowers, she says, construct all even if they get their degree, thanks to racism in the labor market, more debt cancelation would give them a leg up. You have family borrow the color who have never been able to build wealth. They don't have intergenerational wealth. Instead, they're having intergenerational debt. Many black and Latino families missed out on ways to build wealth in the past, like homeownership and job training programs due to racist policies. Researchers who study and talk to student loan borrowers say now a student loan debt is the thing that's holding them back. In a forthcoming report, the center for Responsible Lending found black borrowers who would have all of their debts erased a 50,000 was forgiven. Have median assets worth just $76,000 in most cities. That's not even a house. And of course, there's the pandemic. We are in the midst of a crisis. And so we're just at the place where $10,000 they're gonna cut it, regardless of the dollar figure most advocates for canceling, say the thing that makes it so appealing. It could be done by the president through executive action without Congress. President Biden has long said he'd prefer to use legislation.

"A long term care radio. Glad to have you guys aboard this weekend? Um, I want to start off by asking a quick question out there. Um, do any of you read the obituaries in the paper anymore? I still do. I get a local paper delivered to me once a week from the area that I grew up in in southern Colorado, and the obituaries are on the inside front cover. And so I make it a point every week. When I get that papers, I glance at the outside, see what the big stories are. But then the first thing I do is I flipped the inside cover over. And read the obituaries. And, you know, I'm looking for somebody that I might know and used to be. You know, piers of my grandmother, And now that's you know, a lot of those people are in there. We just had a friend that died. That was 98. But though there's not too many of my friends my grandmother left And so now we're starting to see that peers of my mother maybe of student of mine, A classmates, parents, somebody that I know that way. Every once in a while, you'll see something tragic where it's a younger person that dies in an accident or or cancer, something an early age. But what I've noticed about the obituaries over all the years as they have some things in common. And they always start off usually like where that person was born into whom so who the parents were, and then they'll often talk about where they grew up What town they grew up in and when they graduated school And many times it will highlight a person's service in the military. And that's gonna be you know that's very common or that maybe they'll talk about that school that they want to. They graduated college. Um, They always usually talk about who they got married, too. And I always kind of laugh at this because if they married the love of their life from high school, and they've been married for 55 years, that's always highlighted. But when you have someone like my grandma, who was on her third husband, that's always a little bit tricky. You know in those obituaries, so I was kind of look for that. And you can tell the people that have been together 30 40 50 years that's always highlighted. Um Another common thing you'll see in the obituaries is how many kids do they have it? It's the survived by section so they'll list out their kids, their grandkids. Sometimes they're great. Grandkids often will see nephews and nieces and brothers and siblings and all these things, and I'm always, you know, inspired by that, because you'll realize just how many people this one person touched. When they start breaking down that family tree And then you'll often see you know something highlighted about their accomplishments or their hobbies or something that they were very proud of. Maybe a foundation they started or that they volunteered, or they taught school. It's such and such place for 37 years. You always kind of see those things highlighted. The one thing that I've noticed that the cause of death it's usually not listed in the obituaries. You know, sometimes they'll say they passed away after Ah brief bout with cancer. Or you might see a new story in the paper somewhere else, but is a general. They don't talk about the death. I'll tell you one thing you almost never see in all the years I've been reading the A bitch ways as you never see him talking about the last years of that person's life. In fact, they will go on and on about the early years of early accomplishments where they graduated school who they got married to their kids, all those kind of things where they worked, but you almost never see him mention. The last years of their lives. In fact, even the pictures that are submitted often are from earlier days. You know, back when they're in their twenties or their thirties with a motorcycle or something that they really enjoyed where, maybe in their prime working years in their 50. But you never see a picture of someone lying in a hospital bed with an oxygen tube on you Just don't see those kind of pictures, usually in the obituaries. They're usually a picture from earlier years. And I think that you know one of the big things that we really have to think about on. This is why do we do that? It's humans. Why do we simply want to focus on the good times? Do we really on Lee need to remember those good times? Do we want to forget the bad times? And and Actually, researchers reviewing several studies on autobiographical memory and happiness have found that human memory is based biased towards happiness, so that's kind of our default is to focus on the happiness. So we're programmed to remember those good times, so to speak, But there is a catch to this. Mild depression can disrupt the bias for good over bad meaning that people that have mild depression can often will focus on the bad. They start moving that that that default mechanism to focus on the good memories and no focus on the back. Stick with me on this, And this is why we're talking about this. Who suffers from some of the highest rates of depression out there. It's caregivers if we take him as a group, asshole caregivers Suffer some of the highest rates of depression out there. Which right now, according to AARP, there are over 53 million caregivers in this country. The overwhelming majority of them are unpaid family members. I think about that 53 million caregivers, the vast majority of our unpaid family caregivers. That number is actually creep up a little bit due to Cove it because people are pulling out all stops to try to avoid going to an assisted living facility or to a nursing home setting. But over 50 million in in the overwhelming majority of them, So let's just say it's 90% or unpaid family members. That's that's 45 million people. Folks is nearly one in six people out there. So my question for you today when you think about this, I think about your future and I want you to think about your your retirement years and the years you have ahead of you. My question to you is how do you want to be remembered? How do you want the last years of your life to play out.
