right now pause the show you know you just press pause if you're on rumble if you're on YouTube if you're on Twitter and just just stack some sats and send those sats as cold storage this is a great opportunity for you sats for a dollar three thousand eight hundred forty three block height eight hundred three thousand seven hundred seventy seven blocks to having thirty six thousand two hundred twenty three having estimate April 20 2024 total light and network capacity four thousand six hundred forty three Bitcoin capacity value 120 million u.s. dollars realized monetary inflation one point seven six percent the market capitalization of Bitcoin five hundred and six billion dollars billion with a B Bitcoin versus gold market cap four point zero one percent in the grand scheme of things Bitcoin is still a tiny little baby again my favorite statistic out of all this because it just continues to embarrass fiat currencies and that number will go down forever Laura is the realized monetary inflation rate of Bitcoin at one point seven six percent I think when we started covering that number is at one point seven nine percent it just go it trickles down ever so slowly and I think as the years go by you know it's gonna be interesting to see that anyways check out this video by predator and the reason I wanted to play it is when when these days happen when the price of Bitcoin goes down like 9% in a short period of time it's important to zoom out when in doubt and this is a CNN BC segment from 2018 and this guy and he's pretty popular on Twitter ran nooner and it apparently it aged like like milk and tins things tend to age like milk your comments better said when they're anti Bitcoin comments so you can't stop the honey badger you can't stop ngu technology so anyways let's check out what he has to say and the price of Bitcoin at that time was eight thousand one hundred eighty two fast forward a couple years later we're about 3x at the bottom of the bear market so maybe it's this is it maybe it's safe to say that maybe he was wrong anyways check it out Bitcoin total or photo I like Bitcoin a lot but I'm gonna fuddle really I'm gonna fuddle and I'll tell you I'll justify that I think Bitcoin at 8200 I think the price is low I think it's going to continue to go up and I think it's going to continue to go up slowly and in a stable way but they're more exciting cryptocurrencies out there and if you're gonna ask me whether I'm gonna put my money into Bitcoin or something more exciting I'm gonna go with something more exciting so it's part of that because there are Bitcoin features now because institutional money that is going into cryptocurrencies is going into Bitcoin and that dampens volatility a little bit of that but a lot of the money is going from Bitcoin and even aetherium and the more established coins into this ICO frenzy there's this frenzy happening which is not on the markets which is happening on the on the outside of the markets where hundreds of millions of dollars are going into ICOs where's that money coming from it's not coming from fiat it's people cashing in their Bitcoin and their theory and when they cash in the markets gonna go down that said I do think the institutions are going to come in towards the end of this year and that's gonna they're gonna come into Bitcoin and aetherium first right and then the market is gonna go up so I am calling Bitcoin up and I do love the technology but they're better coins out there so I'm fuddling on that one dude what are you saying about Bitcoin cash after yeah let's let's finish it hodler photo I know I'm gonna get murdered on Twitter driving it that's all the old Bitcoin people and so my money as much as it's gonna hurt me on Twitter why why will hurt you because you're a dummy holes and Roger beer on how much like like this gentleman is actually fearful of the noise but let me just say that I love both kids equally I love Bitcoin cash and I love them equally but if you ask me where I put my money right now but going cash has got more potential can we fact-check him on the price when did that video come out and like what I'll do that in the background but but dude holy shit I mean bro like dude love centralized finance man I mean that's stay humble stacks that's right those are wrecked nowadays but uh yeah man holy shit Abdi what's your take while I look this up yeah well of course like bra ran is like what a joke and and you know like I kind of don't really care what Rand's doing but is he still around like is he still in the space I'm sure he's still on Twitter shilling garbage and people still listen to him for god knows why but there's something he said that I think is very interesting and it was basically like I don't like Bitcoin right now I want something shiny or something new or something whatever a new trinket you know like what glitter is gold kind of kind of meme and I was watching this Alex Hermoso video I don't know if you guys know who her mosey is but he's like a business guy he's one of those social media guru type dudes and I really enjoy his content I'd highly recommend you guys watch it but he said something on the lines of like if you want to succeed then you want to double down on what's better and not what's new and shiny and it like instantly obviously as a Bitcoin er I always brought it back to Bitcoin and I'm like oh my god like that's the perfect meme like Bitcoin is simply better than everything else it may not be the new thing I know there's the mean I remember when I got into Bitcoin in 2017 they said you know like bitcoins the myspace and you still hear people say this like bitcoins old and clunky tech it's the myspace of the cryptocurrency industry and obviously that means trash and and that narrative is followed up like falling apart at the seams and if you really look at the metrics I think Bitcoin is head and shoulder even it's it's a whole you know six foot body above everyone else because everything is six feet in the ground but it's about the idea of doubling down on what's better and not what's new and I'm gonna steal that meme and and continue to double down on that idea like Bitcoin is simply better than everything else by every metric and you don't need to chase something new you know you don't need to chase the gains to improve your life just simply stacks at stay humble stay solvent as we always say it just it's simply Bitcoin this is why it's simply Bitcoin guys oh man so I couldn't find the chat the try the whatever thing in time but yeah dude the ICOs got wrecked okay like that that's not even a fucking thing Bitcoin cash versus Bitcoin that also got fucking wrecked the Bitcoin cash hash rate literally just fucking plumb like it's literally either stagnant or just like continuing to go down Bitcoin hash rate continues to go parabolic there's obviously a clear winner there yeah dude I mean look it's like Odell reference like that's what it comes down to high time preference and like Odell has that perfect line like it's really a simple stay humble stacks at and I'll sprinkle in what vkingo has has basically made into a strong meme at this point stay solvent at the same time and yeah it's a hundred percent true bro but Adam like what's your what's your take on this bro why is this guy on CNBC who should be on CNBC instead of this guy no that I mean I mean he's the perfect guy for CNBC because like it's fiat legacy media like that's that's what it is right like we're not talking about that on simply Bitcoin for a reason we're a bunch of low time preference hardened Bitcoiners CNBC like what are they looking for quick hits they got the highest time preference they got a 24-hour time preference that's it that's all CNBC wants they want someone to drive clicks and eyeballs they're not looking at explaining value they don't they don't care about sound money and and value for generations they're like oh maybe I'll they're not worried about you know actually producing any level of serious wealth or preserving their productivity like what you do with Bitcoin and same with right like there's tons of people in Bitcoin that aren't in it for sound money they're in it because they think there's gains against the dollar but I forget I think Nico it maybe was you said it like you know you're not trading in your USD for like Turkish lira or like you know like yeah USD is done pretty good against the lira you're not you're not gonna go and buy the lira because the lira is trash and and like so is the US dollar against Bitcoin and when you look at it to that perspective it's just a it's not investing it's saving and everyone out there who starts in this space who starts in who talks about I see I actually like I haven't said the word ICO it's so long they're just like completely out of my like thought process of vocabulary but that guy reminded me like it was all about gains it wasn't about sound money and no cryptocurrency is about sound money it's all about gains and projects and and monet like like Fiat growth where Bitcoin is about lowering time preference improving your life and giving your family a shot at the future and it's just like it's apples and oranges dude it's just not even the same and this clip just boom proves it a hundred percent I love how you said that about CNBC being a high time preference channel it is like the the epitome of Fiat TV a hundred percent I think independent media is the future of media I saw a statistic this morning about for the first time ever cable news or just traditional television has actually actually has less viewers than new forms of media whether that's Netflix HBO YouTube all that stuff so clearly this is the future also this is a theory that was predicted by the book the sovereign individual which you guys know I'm a huge fan of what the internet was gonna do and to information technologies and all that stuff so yeah man really really exciting times you know I think it's causing a little bit of chaos this guy was just proven absolutely wrong and look it's it's literally a life lesson just stay humble stacks that's by Bitcoin earn Bitcoin mine Bitcoin take that said Bitcoin into cold storage forget about it save it for a rainy day multi-generational wealth anyways everybody before we wait nigga before we move on I want to emphasize something that Adam said and it's a it's a great meme and I thought you were gonna hit on it he said something about Bitcoin gives your family a chance to you know build wealth going into the future here we go here we go you know Bitcoin would have gave me and Chrissy a chance to improve on our relationship but she is anti Bitcoin and I just can't have that I can't build a family there's no family values on the Fiat standard this is why we are Bitcoin only but now seriously Adam I think you hit the nail on the head with with that that phrase right there like Bitcoin gives your family a chance to survive and to build wealth and and moving forward more people are waking up to this yeah quickly on your note whenever I hear about the book the sovereign individual I always think about Atlas Shrugged and I'm listening to Atlas Shrugged right now and I told you guys before the show we my family was on a road trip and I played the money speech in the car I'm not sure if you guys have read the book if you haven't just Google or YouTube the money speech from Atlas Shrugged about 15 minutes long and it's absolutely perfect we all know Ayn Rand was a massive Bitcoiner and so you can imagine my my my five and six and three-year-old listening to the money speech as we're driving to the Rocky Mountains in Alberta it was it was pretty epic that dude that I mean your your kids are gonna be like fucking hardcore hard like hardcore Austrian economist fucking Bitcoiner like leave me the fuck alone I love that I love that anyways guys six-year-old what do hard times create he'll tell you strong men without missing that's right absolutely love that this is how this is how we win guys this is how we win anyways guys before we move on to the next segment I want to give a very special shout out to the largest Bitcoin conference on the face of the earth I'm talking about the Bitcoin 2024 conference it's not gonna be in Miami this year it's gonna

alright guys I also want to give a shout out to one of our sponsors Bitcoin evangelism it's a book written by Brian DeMint from the orange palap the great Tatum turn them one turn up once said Bitcoin evangelism is like the Bitcoin standard and Bitcoin for dummies if they had a baby have your struggle to answer your skeptical no-coiners friends objections or maybe you answered it perfectly but they still didn't understand what you said Bitcoin evangelism will equip you with an arsenal of simple illustrations to help you articulate the tenets of Bitcoin to anyone Bitcoin boomer check on enda who is worried about Bitcoin being the currency of the Antichrist check annoying dude from work that rubs it in your face anytime the price of Bitcoin is down check you definitely want to check out Bitcoin evangelism planting the seeds for the decentralized revolution you could scan the QR code on your screen right now and it'll take you directly to Amazon anyways guys let's check out the interesting maybe conspiratorial I have no idea what the F is going on but it is quite strange this article dropped out it dropped yesterday look it looks like it was updated too and it is a rare look into the finances of Elon Musk secretive SpaceX and interestingly this came out also around the same time that the Bitcoin price kind of dumped but like take a look at the wording of the bottom and then you let me know what you guys think of it I quite don't understand the documents also show SpaceX wrote down the value of Bitcoin it owns by a total of 373 million last year and in 2021 and has sold its cryptocurrency and it sold and has sold the cryptocurrency Tesla has taken a similar approach with its Bitcoin holdings must has posted about cryptocurrencies frequently over the years like I have no idea what and it's written weird like it's like the documents also show SpaceX down the wrote down the value of Bitcoin it's owned by a total of 370 million last year and in 2021 and has sold the cryptocurrency like I wrote down is just an accounting practice that's what public companies have to do to ask on their balance sheet when prices fluctuate that's like that's got nothing to do with anything other than fiat standard accounting rules for like companies with large investors it's really it's really fucking weird okay and then like also like I don't like this is like written wrong and and anyways okay moving on so this is watch a guru they said we were able we were unable to confirm reports that SpaceX sold 373 million dollars worth of Bitcoin the report by the Wall Street Journal is unclear and you know it states the passage that I just read to you guys and here is the I don't want to say fact check because it's really like community notes so it's like the users of Twitter came together but this was a tweet by Bitcoin magazine says breaking Elon Musk SpaceX sold all of its three hundred and seventy three million dollars of the Bitcoin and then here's the community know mind you guys Twitter is owned by who Elon Twitter is a private company so it's SpaceX anyway it goes on to say there is no evidence to support this sweet claim of three hundred and seventy three million dollars Bitcoin sale by SpaceX Wall Street Journal did not say SpaceX sold three hundred and seventy three million dollars worth of Bitcoin there's also no evidence provide prove provided proving when a sale occurred and how much was sold so I mean like this is like weird language apparently they're reaching out to the Wall Street Journal for clarification but I'll just tell you what guys all right SpaceX owned by Elon Twitter owned by Elon and this also caused the price to fall nine percent which means it's nine percent cheaper for anyone trying to stack I'm not saying it's a conspiracy I'm not trying to say it's market manipulation but like we always say on the show there's a lot of coincidences happening at the same time man that's all I gotta say what's your take Adam and then we'll move to Opti yeah I mean it just looks like a game of telephone like you know the game where you say like peanut butter and jam sandwich and then it ends up being like I bought a new car down the line it's like some guy wrote they wrote it down and then said they may be sold some and then we've got you know the heroic Bitcoin magazine telling us it's all gone looks like garbage maybe it's the Bitcoin magazine guys trying to stack who knows I don't know man it's a I have no idea what's going on there are you trying to stack cheap can't mind funding the prize we caught you bro oh man I don't know I don't know what's going on I wouldn't I wouldn't I have no idea what's going on I have no idea I did also hear through a grapevine that they're gonna sell remember the popcorn tin they found from the original Silk Road hack yeah I think that had 50k Bitcoin in it I heard they were gonna start selling those off and I'm not sure if that was if maybe someone had some some slippery fingers in there but I don't know I mean does it even matter maybe maybe I don't I really this is just the whole thing is just kind of weird like and I can't even come to any conclusions and tell you guys okay this is what happened I have no idea anyways in other news is this is really what I'm this is really what I'm actually kind of interested in talking about today and just to kind of you know you guys know the model of the show this is your number one source of the peaceful Bitcoin revolution this is an example of that in my opinion so here is a summary from new our friends over at no BS Bitcoin they do incredible job and the name of the article is Argentina's leading presidential candidate vows to shut down central bank if elected so this we covered this on Monday in a way but I really want to talk about the concept of the Overton window on today's show and we'll get to that in a second so first says malaise plans include slashing spending by at least 13% of GDP before mid 2025 by dramatically downsizing public works reducing the number of ministries removing subsidies and capital restrictions that would allow businesses to transact in US dollars more drastically he also plans to shutter the central bank which he says quote has no reason to exist right remember that when we're talking about the Overton window and dollar eyes the 640 billion dollar economy now it's interesting that if he pulls this off and he dollarizes the economy you're gonna get they're gonna get to the eventual conclusion that holy cow now we're not even getting to dictator monetary monetary policy it's the United States and remember a similar a country not not in South America but a Latin American country was in very similar shoes and that country was El Salvador El Salvador is dollarized right and they chose to make Bitcoin legal tender anyways goes it goes on to say central banks are divided in four categories the bad ones like the Federal Reserve the very bad ones like the ones in Latin America the horribly bad ones and the bank of Argentina if Malay wins the presidency he plans to hand over the keys to the central bank to economist Emilio Campo his informal advisor on the dollars dollarization program so that he can shut it down Ocampo will also help in negotiations with the IMF fund with the international monetary funds which has a 77 which has a 44 billion dollar program with the South American nation the candidate says he has no plans to ask the IMF for money which is exactly what name Bukele I heard from his senior presidential advisor that was one of the things that name Bukele till the IMF now why are they telling that to the IMF well that's the leverage point right one of the conditions that the IMF gave Argentina for that bailout was that they had to de-incentivize the adoption of Bitcoin in the country but if you say no no no no I don't want your money I'm gonna try something else they don't really have that leverage anymore and that's precisely why they were so hostile towards El Salvador when El Salvador decided to make Bitcoin legal tender it's an alternative to the IMF system and if you've been paying attention to Alex Gladstein's work also there's a great book called the confessions of the economic hitman the IMF really perhaps doesn't do the things that they say they do anyways goes on to say another quote the central bank is a scam a mechanism by which politicians cheat the good people with inflationary tax right it's a very very strong statement mind you this guy won the presidential candidate candidacy vote for by 30 he got 31% of the vote the person after him or before him got a 21% or 20% of the world so he won the vote by 11% absolutely massive this guy actually has a shot at winning the presidency now why is all of this important I'm gonna read you what the what the concept of the Overton window is and it says the Overton window is an approach to identifying the ideas that define the spectrum of acceptability of government policies it's it says politicians can act only within the acceptable range shifting the Overton window involves proponents of policies outside the window persuading the public to expand the window and you could say without a doubt based on the results of this that this guy has shifted the fuck out of the Overton window right so take a look at here for audio listeners right on the very top it says unthinkable under that it says radical under that it says acceptable under that it says sensible under that it says popular and in the middle it says policy he has definitely shifted the idea that a central bank is a scam that inflation is a tax he's definitely shifted that for maybe radical maybe acceptable maybe sensible you could definitely say without a doubt based on the results of this last thing that it's in the popular and if he gets elected it might even fucking become policy which is absolutely bonkers yeah man I totally get why the IMF fear Bitcoin I totally get why you know they're labeling this guy all the things that they want to label him he has said some crazy shit I'm not gonna lie but man oh man like boy has he shifted the Overton window and even if he doesn't win he is getting into the mainstream consciousness of Argentines this idea that holy shit central banks aren't necessary inflation truly is a tax and you know this Bitcoin thing it's pretty dope you know it's it's probably it's money what he says money from the private sector I would say my Bitcoin is much more public than government money I would say government money is a lot more private but you know they'll use the the you know the jargon to try to you know mix things up and whatever and they'll get Christine the guard to sign the bank notes and say but hey guys I'm gonna sign it but you guys get to choose the color and the design and all that stuff I actually voted in that and I sent a picture of Opti so that Opti could potentially be on the 10 euro bill but I don't know if I don't know if Christie's gonna be okay with that you know like what do you guys think smiling picture of Opti like on the euro I think it'd be funny it'd be tough for me to burn those though and I just I just and with Opti space on there I mean I couldn't light it on fire it's just too beautiful that's true that maybe maybe maybe it's a bad idea maybe it's a bad idea maybe you're right anyways in all seriousness Adam what's your take on Javier Millet and look this oh by the way this all this isn't only happening in Argentina this is happening in the United States we have RFK jr. we have Ron DeSantis both staunchly against CBDC's pro Bitcoin also in Canada you have Poulier Polyvar who has a good chance at I totally butchered it how do you say how do you say his last name Pierre Paul yeah so wrong Pierre Paul yeah it's interesting I I'm of two minds on this it's interesting having politicians politicians are politicians and having them in Bitcoin is probably a little bit like good ish short term I don't know let's go actually date like Bitcoin brains Dave and I had dinner with Paul Yev as part of a larger group a couple years ago kind of before he so went on his Bitcoin run and you could see him we were telling him about Bitcoin obviously you could see him really understanding Bitcoin like in a snap it was someone who understood what sound monetary policy needs to be and then hearing him ask the right questions and get the answers that he was expecting was just like boom Bitcoin makes so much sense and it was so sick to watch him go on this massive Bitcoin tour talking about Bitcoin and then when the price fell he just completely abandoned it it was like sound money didn't matter anymore and that kind of pissed me off so I'm like having been like watching politicians play this game for a bit longer I mean starting in this like massive bull run like last bull run watching him talk about Bitcoin it was all good seeing politicians now start in the bear market makes me very interested because it's a lot about price like Paul Yev's speeches and and and quotes were all about like inflation and blah blah blah which is true in the long term and obviously not in the short term and so he got like criticized in there like we've got crazy monopole left-wing communist media here in Canada and they just absolutely crucified him in it which I think hurt ratings and and and you know we all know what politicians think about ratings so I'm of two minds about politicians in Bitcoin and and and how they what they say and how they react and what their what their platforms are but Overton window aside more people in Canada than ever I mean we had the big trucker thing as well which I think helped move the Overton window about what's possible in a centralized fiat economy and yeah super positive I'm interested I'm watching the comments here it's interesting seeing some guys they're not loving the Argentinian president saying he's a he's a bit of a fraud which is maybe furthering the like politicians in Bitcoin like this Bitcoin even need a government I don't know I completely agree and that goes with the theory of the sovereign individual that Bitcoin information technology will eventually make politics irrelevant however during the transitionary period unfortunately I think the more politicians are on the side of Bitcoin even if they don't quite understand or believe it like if they're just pushing pro Bitcoin policy I think that's enough like that that that pushes stuff to our side and I completely agree I don't think Ron DeSantis or or Vivek Wamasami I totally pronounced that incorrectly or the presidential candidate in Canada you know maybe they don't they don't actually believe this but they're saying this because they think they're gonna get votes out of this right right so yes moving the Overton window which is which is definitely positive for sure yeah yeah 100% and for the central bankers they're fucking terrified right yeah the idea that like the mere concept of having a central bank is a scam that inflation is a scam they're looking at there's like no no like this is crazy this is taboo you guys can't talk about this what the fuck is going on and ten years ago when I started talking about Bitcoin I was talking about like to my friends and family and stuff it was all about like you know money in the bank isn't real Fiat's a scam blah blah blah and they were like you're insane like you are actually crazy you're spreading hate this is bad bitcoins a scam and and now when we talk about it it's like oh you were super right like like I didn't realize how bad it was going to get so quickly and how fast we could get here and it's like it's a little bit I mean it's not gonna stop doesn't stop Fiat rat race continues amen to that amen to that Opti what's your take on all this brother yeah so first I I also want to double down on the idea the Overton windows moving I've been seeing this happen in real time and I've been kind of you know questioning myself whether I'm actually seeing the pendulum swing the other way but I think we have seen the pendulum swing too hard in one direction and we're starting to see people wake up to the real problems in the world and and Adam and I were having this conversation before just like how normalized this madness is craziness has become and and everyone thinks that it's like some obscene thing it's too complicated I'm not smart enough to talk about these issues and it's very simple we've been talking about it all week you know inflation steals from all of us and we are all holding melting ice cubes in our hands and people need to find solutions and we have this solution and it is obviously Bitcoin and and of course like everyone's saying in the chat I'm not sure what to think about me lay from Argentina but he is saying what we say all the time so on that note it is exposing more people to the fact that we aren't just crackpots we aren't just like crazy conspiracy theorists like we're not just these whatever nomenclature you want to call us it's like we are the ones with the signal right now and more people are waking up to this and the Bitcoin signal is slowly but surely inching into the mainstream signal and it's only a matter of time until everyone else oh man everyone else wakes up to the problem so you know it does seem like for maybe he isn't a bukele but it does seem like the bukele strategy is starting to make waves in South America and hey not everyone is going to be as successful as bukele not everyone's gonna be a Bitcoiner but at least people are trying new things and for better or worse this is going to be good it's gonna be good on the long in the long term TLDR on that note we are winning but I kind of want to go back to Musk because you were talking about him in the beginning um it just goes to show you how early we are when one person's opinion still moves the market and you can see that this is still the case and and it just goes to show there's multiple things that you can you can jump on on and on that vein one is obviously most people have no clue what they're holding if Musk doesn't like it oh I shouldn't like it either and these are the same type of people that would literally follow Musk off a cliff it's just like okay you know like I I see you I feel for you I'm empathetic but just because you don't like the value of a car doesn't mean the car has no value and this is where we are Bitcoin is superior technology to fiat money and more people are waking up to this and of course we talk about it constantly on the show that yes traders are on the margin there's you know small liquidity that moves on the markets and that's what makes all these price fluctuations and volatility so either way it really just makes you wonder how early we are to all this stuff and also that like the fiat practices you know as as Adam was telling us that that really like I don't know makes my conspiracy theory hats come up and it's like okay what are they doing are they just like adjusting paper ledgers on there you know they're just doing some accounting or are they actually selling their Bitcoin like is there liquidity problems there like is is must over stretching himself with all the stuff he's doing with Twitter and SpaceX and stuff you know I'm sure the conspiracy theories are going wild right now but I think either way it doesn't really matter for us we just got cheap sets and the best time to be stacking is when there's blood on the streets as the saying goes and I even had some friends hit me up last night like yo what's going on with the prize bro I'm like if you have money on the side just slowly deploy that capital this is the last leg down that we've all kind of been waiting for is this the final bottom who knows but we know that maybe this is the last capitulation maybe musk is the sacrifice we need for the bull run to continue so hey let's go all right everybody I think I don't want to jump in on something say something just to highlight like how messed up the fiat practices are so like we're publicly traded and we have to abide by all of these fiat practices we are we have to mark up or sorry we have to mark down the price of Bitcoin that we hold on our balance sheet when the price falls but we're not allowed to mark it up as the price rises until we actually realize the gains and then when you realize the gains aka sell that money goes into the profit loss section of your operations so like it could just be a complete like shell game of shuffling numbers on a balance sheet trying to either trick or at best deceive their investors like SpaceX and or Tesla like look we're super profitable it's like yeah you're profitable because you sold your bit quite that's like not because your ops are good not because your business is sound only because you you know made a good decision a few years ago and you followed up with a bad one by selling Bitcoin and now you're profitable so it's like the fiat economics and the fiat practices when we're working in this fiat ecosystem are quite interesting and are not conducive to the Bitcoin standard whatsoever yeah dude a hundred percent like it's too it's like the tease to this archaic system clashing with this new system and it's just a it just points out like it shows all the all the all the ridiculousness all the ridiculousness is of the fiat system a hundred percent anyways everybody let's move on

coast Pacific Bitcoin Festival promo code simply to get 21% off your tickets to the festival anyways Opti what are we talking about yeah yeah before before I pull up what Adams working on I know you guys love the rabbit hole stories and I think this is gonna be a fitting way to talk about what Adams working on and it's the quintessential question of why Bitcoin and and the reason I want to start with why Bitcoin is because I think this is going to lean into the company philosophy and all the things you're working on and you were telling us behind the scenes just so much sauce that we got to give it to the people so Adam why Bitcoin why are you a Bitcoin why do you build on Bitcoin yeah man the Bitcoin like why Bitcoin is the only real thing to talk about I think I found Bitcoin in 2013 and it was like everyone who gets the Bitcoin it was number go up that caught my attention it was like oh hey look fake internet money's worth 100 bucks I'm gonna be smart and disprove this and when you learn about me to try to disprove Bitcoin you inherently learn about Bitcoin and then you learn about economics and and ultimately fiat wrapped up in a bubble and then you realize that Bitcoin is actually just the obvious answer and that everything that you've been taught for two decades in my case was the scam and that is actually what needs to be disproven so I went on started my Bitcoin journey then as I mentioned earlier I was like very excited about Bitcoin like you know imagine 20 year old Adam in 2013 being like ah your money in the bank is a scam and this internet tokens gonna fix it and like my you know dad's friends like these people that are you know a little bit older than I am are like you're crazy kid you need to you know learn about what you're talking about but kind of just kept going same philosophy of like Bitcoin is sound money and then you know obviously watched the like the chaos ensue over the next like up until now like I've you know our mission about Bitcoin well is is self custody by default it's to enable independence is is why we exist which is you know not to take a jab at our at the sponsor here we don't encourage self custody we force self custody you can't buy and hold Bitcoin at Bitcoin wallet you can only buy and then take custody immediately and I think that's because I've seen like I lived through in Canada we had a massive one called quadriga before that there was Mount Gox which affected lots of my friends and family after that obviously most recently FTX but how many like little tiny ones in between that have just been covered up by investors or covered up by insurance and it's just like you absolutely need to be Bitcoin focused and you need to be self custody focused and so started with Bitcoin ATMs which at that point was really the only way like the fraud in Canada is pretty insane it's pretty bad in the States to people buying Bitcoin with stolen bank accounts and the money and the like the banking system just blames the merchant so back in 2015 I was accepting digital payments for Bitcoin the bank told me they were irreversible and lo and behold they were not and so I would send Bitcoin instantly based on our non custodial practices and then through 30 to 45 days later all that money gets recalled and it was like the anti-fraud practices the anti-fraud technology just wasn't capable it wasn't possible back then so it was Bitcoin ATMs was the focus it was cash to Bitcoin instantly we've got a network of ATMs around Canada and then last year we launched in Canada our Bitcoin portal which as you're showing there I think in Canada we've got a payment rail called Interac e-transfer and it's it's actually pretty good it's super centralized it's all fiat but it sends money relatively instantly kind of like what PayPal and Venmo do and in Canada you can go bank to Bitcoin on the blockchain in less than 30 seconds my record is nine seconds where I sent an e-transfer and had Bitcoin in my self custody wallet on the blockchain TX ID in hand in nine seconds which is pretty cool and then last week we just kind of soft launched in the States where you can you can sign up link your bank account and buy Bitcoin take them directly into self custody immediately at no point in time or the SAT sitting with us the second we receive your money the Bitcoin is on the blockchain and out there that said it's not as fast unfortunately because the ACH rails in most cases it's about 24 hours from like sending the money to it being funded and then and then Bitcoin on the blockchain but it's early days for us in the States we're excited to get some hardened Bitcoin is on the platform and I'm looking forward to like like I kind of said like I don't want to encourage self custody I want to force it and Nico and I had a great conversation at the Bitcoin rodeo here in here in Alberta a few months ago about like you know there's lots of uphill battles with self custody in the real world and I want to fight them all I think it's one of the most important things we can do is enable independence as a as a business and you can't do that when coins are just sitting in someone else's wallet so it's self custody or bust for us I love that I love that it's it's self custody by default that's really really interesting concept and you know we say this all the time right the the you know if enough people take self custody will win no matter what they do and you know I don't think things really change unless people take self custody right so so anyways Opti what's your talk what's your yeah yeah actually I kind of want to circle back to something that you said in the beginning um did you work in like traditional finance finance before Bitcoin or you said something about like two decades of doing this so is that like trading or oh no no sorry I meant two decades of like just living like I'm like okay okay yeah like when I said two decades it's like like what I turned I think I was eight or nine like you know dad takes us to the bank we got a bank account that's all fine but then it's like all your money goes to the bank and then you're in school and you're completely financial illiterate through school and you learn about like you know the communist curriculum that exists in the school system and and how you know how good the government is for your money and and how bad it can be if you try to do it yourself and that's more what I meant about like two decades of you know learning growing up not being taught about money and more importantly sound money is and then and then switches to like Oh Bitcoin this is the obvious answer it completely flips the script from what we're taught at a very very young age yeah 100% I always ask friends and and the rhetorical questions like our Bitcoiners made or are they born because like I feel like I've been primed to be a Bitcoiner through all my life experience and I was telling you before the show like I don't know something about my mother instilling in me early like I just hate banks and so it's like I've always been a Bitcoiner now but I want to ask you as a Bitcoin entrepreneur what's it mean for you to build on Bitcoin like you you talk about why you're obsessed with Bitcoin but how come you know we've devoted our lives to Bitcoin like why are you a Bitcoin entrepreneur yeah I think it it's important to remember it's just the why it's it's the why of independence like I like I go home every day and my son like I think my son more than he's a bit older and and and kind of gets it a bit more but like he asked me like what I'm working on it and why are you doing that dad and like what does it mean and and he understands that like we enable independence and and he understands what that means and it's so rewarding to go home look my six-year-old in the eyes and be like yeah like I helped someone set up cold storage and then showed them how to buy Bitcoin instantly and send it directly to cold storage in like that's the safest way to buy Bitcoin and after watching my friends lose hundreds of coins I've I have literally witnessed hundreds of coins go missing because of incompetence malice and laziness on on on like laziness on my friends parts and and incompetence and malice on the on the platforms part of coins just sitting and it's like oh yeah I'll get him off the platform like I can withdraw anytime no problem no you can't because the second the platform decides you can't withdraw you are no longer able to withdraw and I think that's a problem I mean the bank run was real in the States what was it a few months ago earlier this year the SVB Bank run there is no question that a bank run will collapse the majority of platforms I might even say all platforms in the States and we need self-custody by default because we cannot as a as a group of people that believe in self-custody we cannot encourage complacency when it comes to who is owning the coins in a fiat economy it's fine because you can just undo the transaction it's fine to just give up custody because it's all fake but Bitcoin is so real and so hard that if you aren't taking custody and you're not forcing people to educate themselves and do that and I think it's I think it's a tough couldn't agree more I 100% couldn't agree more and you kind of buried the lead and we and we did talk about this in the beginning of the show before we went live are you looking for people to help to just download like what's this what do you what's the soft launch you're talking about yeah man bitcoin.com slash join sign up it's it's easy it's quick I think it's like two and a half minutes to get fully signed up and verified then connect your bank and smash buy the workflow is super super simple it's basically fund your account like whatever 50 bucks 100 bucks 50,000 bucks whatever you know go buy a whole coin let's let's go and then the workflow is so simple it's it's like you're once your account gets funded you submit you hit buy how much you want to buy enter your Bitcoin address and then buy and voila it's it's a great system right now all the transactions are batched so they actually go out I think once a day or twice a day and we're just but we're working on like like I said early days and we're looking for people to give us feedback to become supporters of Bitcoin well and and really have a line in to to helping the product grow and build if you believe in self-custody you believe in enabling independence like I want the help and I want our you know our listeners and and and everyone who's out there that believes the same thing as I do to give me a hand and hey this would be really cool for this feature or this product needs X Y & Z I only have my perspective and of course we have a wicked team that's working on it that has their perspective and their research but ultimately it's the community it's the Bitcoin community that that builds ironclad products and we're we're keen to listen and and and keen to make a platform that is the safest platform you can possibly use that embodies the Bitcoin ethos and the Bitcoin standard to a tee so I have a question for you Adam so what happens when someone buys like a small amount of Bitcoin and if you're doing self-custody by default like who's gonna pay for those fees yeah so we like we cover it like I said it's all batched so and this is the reason why it's batched is because we have such a small number of transactions right now it's so early and so what what a batch is effectively is all of our transactions from the day go out in one batch and they go out so whether you're buying 20 bucks or you know 2,000 bucks or whatever it might be it's all in the same batch and being sent out what we're working on and what will eventually happen is you will be able and I should be clear we cover the TX ID fee in the future what will be happening is you'll be able to upgrade and you'll be able to pay for that transaction to go out kind of instantly but right now like I said early days it's all batched and so whether you're buying $10 like this is the way to buy $10 of Bitcoin because and take it in self-custody as long as you can control the TX ID management later on we cover all the all the all the outgoing fees so can you buy lightning or is it just all on chain no it's all it's all on chain I was actually thinking about this though like there's enough I'll be at custodial but decent lightning wallets that you could use you could just send the Bitcoin directly to the lightning wallet which will automatically flip it into into lightning like wallet of Satoshi or I think coin OS does it you could maybe even use I think like the umbral nodes actually have a have an on chain to lightning switch I don't think there's even a fee for that so there's definitely like there's ways that Bitcoiners can do it so there's no lightning right now that is the you know that's on the roadmap and we want lightning to be part of our future I think lightning is important but I think there's also there's enough good products out there that allow you to go from chain to lightning and like frankly most good lightning wallets are already custodial and I think it's been my experience and in the experience of me talking to the community that most people go from self-custody Bitcoin into lightning and so there's not a lot of good options to go from bank to Bitcoin fast and safe on the blockchain and so having that kind of go from bank to chain in self-custody and then it's just one simple step to go from chain to lightning I think that's okay for right now I don't think that's a massive kind of barrier for the end user yeah I always say it as well it's like baby steps guys and trying not to you know force everyone's behavior and one fell swoop is how do we get people to exposure and everything but before we move on to the memes Adam I just want to comment wait wait hold on I gotta give a shout out bro oh you got our rumble audience dude 40 live viewers on rumble shout out to you guys some some 200 on on YouTube and then on the other platforms also shout out to you

Gov. Ron DeSantis: GOP Has Developed a 'Culture of Losing'
"Was governor desantis yesterday asked directly about election fraud, election integrity, election shenanigans, this whole Russian collusion crap, listen to his answer. You said they're an event in Iowa over the weekend that the GOP is to reject a culture of losing. Do you acknowledge that Trump lost and there wasn't all this broadly talked about? Well, I look at the last however many election cycles, 2018. We lost the house, we lost the Senate, 2020, Biden becomes president, or no, excuse me, we lost the Senate in 2020, Biden becomes president and has done a huge amount of damage, very unpopular in 2022, and we are supposed to have this big red wave and other than like Florida and Iowa. I didn't see a red wave across this country. And so I think the party has developed a culture of losing. I think that there's not accountability. And I think in Florida, we really showed what it takes to not just win win big, and then deliver big. And ultimately, when you're doing all this, what results are you producing for people. That's really what matters. You can sit there and talk about cable news, social media, all these other things that people are fixated on, and for me, it's like, okay, what's that true north? You obviously got to win, otherwise you don't get a ticket to the dance, but once you do that, how are you going to be able to actually bring about big change to make people's lives better? Good answer for Ron DeSantis. Let me take a directly to you. One 806 5 5 mic, because the headline, the takeaway is Ron DeSantis, sidestepped the question about 2020 election fraud.
Montage: Prominent Dems Question Elections Following Trump's 2016 Win
"This is a clip we've played that was a Montage. I forget who put it together. And they think it was RNC, maybe, or maybe news busters. Somebody put this clip together of the way some of the most prominent Democrats in America responded to Trump being elected in 2016. This is what they said. You remember this, the next time somebody calls you an election denier. Trump didn't actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election, and he was put in the office because the Russians interfered. Trump knows he's an illegitimate president. The president will elect the legally elected is not legitimately. I don't see the president elect as a legitimate president. You said you believe that Russia's interference altered the outcome of the election. I do. We have a president who is in fact it is proven. Has been assisted by the Russians and may in fact not be a legitimate president. The one thing that Trump is fearful of when it comes to is being president is that finally we will see how illegitimate his victory actually was. I have an objection. I object to the 15 votes from the state of North Carolina. I object because people are horrified. He's an illegitimate president. Do you believe Trump is a legitimate president? But I believe is that there's no question that the outcome of this election was affected by the Russian interference. But there are absolutely is a cloud of illegitimacy. So let legitimacy is the question, yes. So that was a very tainted election. And in that sense, it's illegitimate. Now, do you remember that? And incidentally, if you want that clip, you can get it. We'll send it to you. Just text the keyword fraud to the MyPillow text line at 806 5 5 mic
Celebrating National Day of Prayer 2023
"It's a very important day. It's a day that you should take to heart and remember that prayer works. Prayer matters, this is Thursday, may the fourth, 2023, it is the national day of prayer. And if people on the left get angry about folks singing The Star-Spangled Banner in a restaurant, I gotta believe they're losing their minds over people openly praying on air, but that's what we invite you to do. When you join us at 806 5 5 mic, you have a couple of options. You can press one to come on air with me. But if you press two, you can leave a voicemail. Today's voicemail function is reserved exclusively for prayer. I hope you'll make the prayer fairly concise so we can get you on the air. We want to get a lot of voices and a lot of prayers on the show today. But we do want to hear your prayers. We have to pray for our country because goodness knows if this country was ever in need of prayer, it's now. We look around at the condition of this country, you can't even recognize it in some places. You can't even, you can't even believe the conflict we're having.
Donald Trump Advises Ron DeSantis Should Not Run for President
"We got to beat the Democrats. We got to take the country back and the only path to do it is to put a Republican in The White House. Period. Any Republican is better than any Democrat. But here was Trump urging desantis to keep his powder dry. Ron desantis is a young man who is not doing well against me in the polls to put it mildly. I believe that if he decides to run for president, which will only hurt and somewhat divide the Republican Party, which we don't need, he will lose the cherished and massive mega vote and never be able to successfully run for office again. I believe that if he remains governor, which is what Florida voters assumed he would do, it would be a whole different story. Just saying, but who knows? All right, is he right? Let me turn it over to you, 806 5 5 Mike. Again, I am agnostic. I'm all set for whoever the Republican nominee is. I understand though the argument that Ron DeSantis should shit this one out.
Report: Trump Explores the Potential Use of His Mugshot for Merch
"I know people are enthusiastic about supporting Trump any way they can. It was reported in The Guardian that Trump has said to his aides that he wants to explore the opportunity of putting his mugshot on t-shirts and coffee mugs. You know, making this a huge campaign issue. Well, we jumped on that last week. We've already begun taking your orders for free for these t-shirts that say free Trump, Tracy keeps warning me, they're not free Trump t-shirts. Their t-shirts that say free Trump with his mugshot, 1998 plus shipping and handling and we do a two day shipping. That's gonna take a little bit, it may take a week or two or maybe even three weeks because we got to wait till the mug shot is released. It's expected it will be released. It definitely is going to say free Trump on the T-shirt if you want to place your T-shirt orders just text the keywords free Trump to 806 5 5 6 four 5 three will send you back the link. The order form where you could place your order. I know people I bought ten of them over the weekend. And some people had a glitch. It's not the shipping isn't per shirt. So if you order a I bought, in fact, I bought a bunch of items on the Mike Gallagher store, now they've got coffee mugs and tumblers, those what do you call those tumblers with the insulated tumblers? Yeah, they Mike Gallagher's show. We've got all kinds of merchandise that says that say, fight the good fight, which is kind of our show's motto, our theme, boy, those words from the book of Timothy apply now more than ever before, don't they?

I would echo that. 806 5 5 mic. Here is line four. Here is Marie and Rochester, Minnesota. Your tax dollars paying for Ukrainian pensions. What do you say, Marie? I say that's got to end. If that's not happening, we're not going to work every day to pay for other countries, people. It's happening. We're doing it. This is I'm not asking this question about yes or no and we get to decide Joe Biden is deciding. The Lindsey grahams and the Mitch mcconnells are deciding. We've got a bunch of establishment Republicans who I guess think this is fine.

Left-Leaning Journal Explains How the Media Has Lost All Trust
"The media is read that Columbia journalism review scathing takedown of the mainstream media and how corrupt it is. If you text the keyword Colombia to our MyPillow text line, which is 806 5 5 mic, we'll send you back this unbelievable report from a left leaning journalism review, the Columbia journalism review. Nobody in the media is talking about it. Because they're humiliated by it. They advance this phony Russia collusion hoax involving the Trump administration with one agenda to damage Donald Trump. And they're still doing it. It's not going to end. They're going to do anything they can to stop the guy. And we just have to accept how they're going to play the game.
Nikki Haley Poised to Enter 2024 Presidential Race
"Now, how insane is it for Nikki Haley to challenge president Trump? Now, according to a report, Nikki Haley is going to announce. On February 15th, the post and courier newspaper out of Charleston is reporting that she's going to make the official announcement that she is going to challenge Donald Trump. And she wants to be the Republican nominee for president. Now, this is an interesting journey because any Republican who declares their candidacy is immediately going to earn the wrath of Trump world. No question. Trump supporters, you know, I think it's fair to say we're a pretty passionate bunch. We get emotional. We're loyal. We're grateful for the four years of the Trump presidency. We've lost count of how many people text the keyword Trump or the keyword more Trump to our MyPillow text line, which is 806 5 5 mic and we send you back the list of the Trump presidency accomplishments. They are enormous. They are profound. We're grateful. Extremely grateful. For what Trump accomplished and millions of Americans see one guy. At the top of the, as the GOP nominee next year and that's Donald Trump. So interestingly, anybody, whether it's Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Glenn youngkin, I don't know, it could be another crowded field.
Most Conservatives Love the 20 Withholding From McCarthy
"Nobody ever acknowledges that most of our folks love with the 20 people are doing. We got a poll up. We have a thousands of people answer the poll at Mike online dot com.

I mean, but I think it really needs to be said that most of our people, freedom, loving, patriot, appreciating Republicans are with the 20 Republicans. The only people who aren't on the inside the beltway folks. I mean, do you get that disconnect? I'm fascinated by how this disconnect between the establishment elites of the Republican Party and the hardworking, honorable, freedom loving patriots of the Republican Party is that gap is just so profound.

Which doesn't seem like totally owning the lips to me. All you'll hear you're actually hearing this now from some prominent republicans are saying you know. Democrats are the real trans folds. What what does that even. I don't even think that word means anything why now. We're adopting that kind of language. I'm really glad. Great to see that. Larry elder is running for governor. Wish him the best of luck in his campaign. I hope that he can raise some money. I hope that he can really mount a challenge because he he if he just went in there and just cleaned up the crime and fix the budget even slightly. That would be such great news for california. There are a lot of republicans. There are a lot of conservatives and there are a lot of disaffected liberals in california. This is how gavin newsom got recalled in the first place and so Certainly wish larry the best of luck because at the federal level right now the federal government is really really clamping down on right wingers and i think that the advances we're gonna make in the near future going to be at the state level. The federal government right now is spending six point. One million dollars unjust a database. Just an an evidence database to prosecute the capital rioters. You know the the participants in the insurrection. The coup take cha the grill. Greatest threat to our republic since world war since pearl harbor since nine. Eleven i'm seriously. People have on the left. Prominent leftist have made that comparison between september eleventh between planes flying into the twin towers and the pentagon and the guy in the horned helmet dancing around the capital. They've they've compared those two things. I'm not saying the federal government spending six point one million dollars to prosecute them. You're going to spend a lot more than i'm seeing this spending six point one million dollars on just the evidence database. Now you might say michael. I think what happened that the capital is ugly. It's bad i don't like it. I don't want that to happen in our country it was. Ill advised wrong as a matter of justice and also wrong as a matter of tactics. Okay sure yeah right. I'm not making any comment on that. I'm pointing out. That horn guy danced around the capital and smiley guy took nancy pelosi's lectern and the only person who was killed in the violence of that day was a trump supporter in dash babbitt killed by a police officer. Despite all the lies told to us by the new york times or the washington post which they later had to retract about trump rioters a attacking police officers pointing out that for six to eight months. Be alam and antifa burned down the country and killed a lot of people and destroyed a lot of property and stole a lot of property and they're largely getting off the hook and there's no six point one million dollar database and there's no massive law enforcement campaign to hold these people responsible and in a lot of cases they're getting plea deals to plead way way down and avoid jail time and in some cases charges are just being dropped entirely or not even brought in the first place. This is an unacceptable double standard. And it's it's really as we pointed out before its hierarchy. It's saying that when the democrats riot it's good and when republicans riot it's it's the worst thing in the world even when the democrat riots are by every measure much much worse according to the ruling liberal elite the conservatives are the big problem that we the country hasn't been this divided since the civil war. In the gop there the confederates on free and fair elections is just such a threat literally. I've said it before. We're facing the most significant test of our democracy since the civil war. That's not hyperbole. Sense the civil war the confederate back then never breached. The capital as insurrection stood on january. The six. I'm not saying this. The arm you. I'm saying this because you should be alarmed. So i'll make the point. I don't want to harp on it but it is. It's an irony. So i have to point it. Out that the confederates were all democrats and the union were all republicans. The parties did not switch as the left insists. They did but of course political parties change and they have all been so. It's not a direct analogue. I don't wanna just retreat to that. Typical republican talking point of democrats. Haven't been this angry since freed their slaves or whatever. Yeah i but local board is do change over time and so i think that's a little bit of a cheap shot though. It is ironic and one has to point it out but notice not here. Here is a real comparison. Between the democrats in the confederates the confederates seceded the confederates. Wanted the war confederates. Or i mean that that was the very essence of secession. Saying we are no longer a country and they hoped that the north would just let them go and that that doesn't happen to come. You can't just secede from a country. The logic of a country does not permit you to do that. Okay who's talking about the civil war right now. I know some people on the right. Ask questions about this.

Is bruce jenner as caitlin. Who says that. He's has no loyalty to the republican party. And the only thing he really cares about is lgbt issues with an emphasis on transgenderism. So you think well hold on. The republican candidate is somehow worse than sitting. Democrat was a terrible governor. But he's worse because at least with newsom you know what you're getting with bruce jenner. He's saying a republican but then he's saying he's not a republican and he's saying cares about transgenderism which is very much the opposite of the sort of policy republicans want to pursue. Well now. there's some hope because a friend of mine has anthony's running for governor. The sage from south central larry elder who just last week announced his run. We have rising crime ridiculous laws that allow a person to steal up to nine hundred and fifty dollars a day without being a felon without fearing going to jail. We had a attack on the police calling the police to pull back. We have incredible homelessness here. In california does estimated that may be one quarter of all. The homeless population in in america is here in california. And why not. We're not dealing with the underlying problem with throwing money after money. After money building homes and attracting other people who get free homes without dealing with the underlying problems and maybe just. Maybe i can do something about it so i am hereby announcing that. I'm running for governor of california in this recall election to be held on september. Fourteen if you wanna help please go to. My website elect elder dot com. That's not elder dot com. I cannot do it without a great deal of money because my opponent governor newsom has no spending limits i do. He doesn't so this is really great news. I think for republicans in california because there are other candidates in in california who were running who i think could be perfectly decent governors something if kevin falconer down in in san diego seems like a barely conservative. Guide be i think he's running for governor but the problem is he doesn't have very high name identification he's not not doing great in terms of fundraising so it doesn't matter. He could be the second coming of coolidge or churchill reagan washington combined and nevertheless it would be a very uphill battle especially because no other democrats are running in the race So newsom newsom doesn't really faced any challenges in that regard but he doesn't have that name. Id and i think larry elder does i mean larry has been on the radio for a long time. He goes on tv quite a lot he had. I agree with him on a great many things. Probably a little more libertarian than my views. You know he's not not quite to the right of attila the hun. But he's good. He's a good guy he he would be a good governor and i i am glad that now there is an alternative to bruce jenner. I think the embrace of bruce jenner is is just the death of the republican party in california's just pathetic. We can't the gop. I get it in california or new york also my home state new york. I know that they've had to make compromises to be in any way electorally viable even in some local races. And i understand. That's the political reality that that republicans have to deal with their if we as republicans cannot even stand up for the difference between men and women if we cannot stand up and and conserve the ladies room for men entering into it. We're not conserving anything. And the as far as i can tell the only thing we would get out of a bruce jenner. Governorship is a misguided sense of owning the libs by adopting their most sacred metaphysical premises doesn't seem like totally owning the lips to me. All you'll hear you're actually hearing this now from some prominent republicans they're saying democrats are the real trans-phobia what what does that. Even i don't even think that word means anything why now we're adopting that kind of language. Some really glad to see that. Larry elder is running for governor. Wish him the best of luck in his campaign. I hope that he can raise some money. I hope that he can really mount a challenge because he he.

"Year tweeted out. Can we trust the data from florida's governor. This is the one who's on cnn. He said can we trust the data. Yeah the data show that this anticipate doing a better job in florida than co cuomo doing a new york even though the media or saying santa's doing the worst job cove and in cuomo's doing the best job on cove and he's gonna win emmy awards for it which makes sense because fiction that was going going on in new york visas. Can we trust the data from florida's governor and it turns out we can. We can trust the data from florida's governor. He counted the deaths and he just is doing a good job on his policies but it turns out. We can't trust the data from chris. Cuomo's brother andrew. It turns out that andrew cuomo in new york was doing the exact same thing that the left was accusing the republican governors of doing once more an example of the projection of the left. They do this all the time they accuse you of doing what they are brazenly doing themselves. Cuomo's cova death. Count includes only laboratory confirmed covid nineteen deaths at hospitals nursing homes and adult care facilities now other states have taken the approach. That's more in line. With the cdc and these states some some republican like florida. Summer democrat california. Some have unconstitutional election practices like pennsylvania. Some left wing all of these different states to follow the approach. That's in line with what the cdc's says to do which includes in fatality counts. All cases were covid. Nineteen is an associated or contributing factor. This has been such a broad. Count that in some cases. It's to this ridiculous over counting cova deaths where if you have covert and you don't even know you have covert shot in the head. You get counted cova death because you tested positive at your autopsy or when you're brought to the hospital so all of these states are doing cuomo because he did such a bad job in new york is under county.

"Not going great for the west right now. This is true. In our political system grumbling the lockdowns everywhere a faith in our institutions falling apart divisiveness across all sorts of lines through the roof. But especially you can see it in the population. We are not having babies. And that's a weird thing. It's weird when populations decide to die and so the united states has been below replacement level birth rate for a very long time now and it keeps dropping steadily which is part of the reason by the way that that the country floods itself with illegal aliens and and legal immigrants for that matter to is just to kind of keep. Keep the country afloat while the native population across races is not not replacing itself. That's bad and then the flip side of that is people are killing themselves killing themselves by committing suicide and they're killing themselves with drugs especially with drugs in twenty twenty drug overdose deaths hit the highest number ever recorded according to the cdc ever. There is a good. I know people who are friends of mine died. Rug overdose deaths last year. I suspect many of you out. There could say the same thing i think. A lot of people know people who have who have dealt with drug problems especially during twenty twenty when everyone was locked doors number rose by thirty percent year over year the drug deaths skyrocketed to ninety three thousand deaths in twenty twenty from seventy two thousand in just twenty nine and it was already bad in two thousand nine hundred. You could say right now. The biggest problem in america is the drug overdose death and. I don't think it's coincidental. That had happened in two thousand twenty. I don't think it's coincidental when you lock people inside for a year and you told them that they can't see their families and they can't go to christmas. They can't go to be with their loved ones while they're dying and they can have their weddings and they can't have their college graduation. They can't do anything that you would see. More deaths of despair. You are seeing here. The the culmination of to really bad arguments that are ruling elite have been pushing for a long time. The first one is fairly narrow and it was an argument made during the early days of the lockdown which is an andrew cuomo admitted actually which is funny because he was the worst worst governor in america and covert quo vadis. We call him. Andrew cuomo said if we can save just one life it'll be worth it to shut down the entire state of new york law. We save just one life okay. Maybe i don't think he did. I think actually his policies are directly responsible for the deaths of thousands of senior citizens which he knew about and covered up from the federal government. That's actually what i think happened. But even if hypothetically you could say okay well one. One life was saved from cova because of the lockdown policies even if that were true which it is not how many lives were ended because of those lockdown policies leading to deaths of despair like suicide and especially like drug. Overdoses looks like ninety. Three thousand people killed them it that increase that that Twenty twenty one thousand death increase or to explain that apart from what was going on in the entire society last year but the lockdowns you can if you only save one person and kill twenty one thousand people. It will have been worth it. I don't think so. I mean. I think that even that calculations pretty crass isn't it a these these calculations of just utilitarianism. It's really ugly stuff. So i think the if we can save one life argument just was preposterous. Because there's more to society there's more to human life than just staying alive from a virus. This is actually a problem. That trump had to at trump's cove at press conferences. The only people he had behind him for the most part were public. Health officials but america is about more than public health. Our government or society is about more than public health. He should have had the public health that you should. That guy should have been exiled to an island somewhere but some public health guy. Okay and you should have had an economic advisor and you should've had a military adviser and you should have had all sorts of advisers behind him to say okay. Well here's the effect on coverted infection rates and here's the effect on our national security. And here's the effect on our economy. And here's the effect on people's livelihoods and here's the effect on this. That and the other thing. And then i think we would have had a very different decision. The other argument here that is that is really too bad on the drug drug overdose. Deaths is an argument that the left has made for a long time that the right has bought into. And it's one that we've talked about on the show a lot so we don't need to go too much into it but is it is the confusion of liberty and licentious the idea that freedom means that i should be able to do drugs whenever i want a lot of people in the right calling for the legalization of drugs all sorts of drugs. You're seeing this. Push go on now in state after state after state and it's just a bad idea and it's based on a preposterous logic that if you if you legalize all the drugs. Fewer people will do them. You can't legislate morality anyway and you know you can't you can't control people's behavior with or shape. People's behaviour with the laws and politics is downstream of culture. Whatever you necessarily legislate morality. That's what legislation does if legislation doesn't shape behaviour than it doesn't do anything at all the entire the exclusive function of legislation is to shape behavior to encourage certain behaviors and discourage other behaviors and win. You create incentives for some behaviors and you punish other behaviors. You know what happens. You get more of the former and less of the latter. That's that's just the way it works. You know actually Because the law it has all these inverse relationships with behavior. We need to legalize murder. Because then we'll have less murder while we don't think we will. I don't think we call me crazy. I'm not an economic expert. I don't. I'm not but i'm pretty sure that when you reward some behavior and you punish other behavior you get more of the former and less of the ladder and there is no natural right to do drugs. It is not good. It does not lead to freedom it leads to slavery and the rights to shake itself out of that very silly idea. Otherwise we're we're going to become a nation of cuomo's who spout a bunch of preposterous platitudes and end up governing ourselves. In the worst possible way actually on the cuomo aspect of it here not only does cuomo had the skin. He had the sex scandal which i always felt was just a democrat distraction. So that people wouldn't talk about his actual scandal which is about lying about the number of covid deaths So he was lying about the number of covid deaths in the nursing homes but then turns out he. He also very likely was under counting. Cova deaths more broadly. So the the irony of this is so sweet especially because i saw governor scientists last night chris cuomo last year tweeted out. Can we trust the data from florida's governor. This is frayed of one. The one who's on cnn and he said can we trust the data. Yeah the data show. That disentis is doing a better job in florida than co cuomo's doing a new york even though the media or saying to santa's is doing the worst job on covert and cuomo's doing the best job on cove and he's gonna win emmy awards for it which makes sense because it was fiction that was going going on in new york visas..

"806 52. Oh, 36 team. Welcome back to the Empower East to interview series on business rock stars. I'm continuing my conversation with Leah Ca Planas. She is the founder and CEO of social sparkling wine, and we were just talking about how you had the idea. You came up with the miracle recipe. I'm going to call it because it sounds perfect. Sounds great. Yes. Sounds great and then bringing it into market. What was that process like? Yes. So From there, I I used my skills that I had gained at a large food company to approach retailers. And so I had some initial samples, and I put together a power point presentation that explained, you know, here's the product. Here's the things that make it different or special. Here's what we're going to price it out, and I worked with distributors to just set up meetings with retailers, and I kind of sent them that information. Sold it in and then you know, one customer time. We've now expanded to 50 states. Incredible. Congratulations. Thank you. Now I have heard that the alcohol business can be very tough because you have to go through distributors. So for those who aren't familiar, explain how that works. Yeah, So after Prohibition in the United States, they created three tiered system so You are the manufacturer and then you have to sell it to a distributor who has to sell to a retailer. So you really besides places like California you you're not allowed to sell directly to retailers, so You have to get in with a distributor who will buy your product and deliver it to each of the stores, and then they sell it to the retailers. The What makes it challenging is that they have thousands of items and suppliers and they don't want to take up. Uh, you know they're salesforce's time or their warehouse space with products that they don't really believe in. So, in essence, you are selling into distributors as much as you're selling into retailers. So what's the secret? Well, what was your approach? Yeah, The secret is to go to retailers first to go after the retailers who have some power influence with the distributors and also are a great fit for your brand because they'll end up being your sort of cheerleaders and and then go to the distributor. And so you're kind of going around about way? Yes, and then it they'll tell The distributors that they want it and then the distributor of so much more likely to accept you. Yeah, And I like what you said about finding the retailers that are aligned because there probably are certain retailers that share similar values of of being natural and and having all then nutritious benefits that you're Product has, um so. So how did you did you just do your research on which retailers would be a good fit? Yeah. Yeah, So just, you know, I started out in Chicago, so I kind of knew the marketplace and I knew that a particular retailer catered to a higher end clientele customers. They also really talked about local products, so they weren't. Um, it's only about a 30 store groups. That means that they're a little smaller committee react little faster. This is going to like a target or walmart, or some sort of large retailer that it can move a lot slower and be a lot harder to get into. Yeah, very cool. So let's talk a little bit about your marketing. That's your background as marketing. So how did you approach marketing when it came to getting the message out about social? Yeah. So you know, when we first began, it was really a ton of grassroots marketing. So I was going to events 345 nights a week. You know me with my samples at nonprofit events, that wine shows, um you know, community gatherings for, you know, with women. Business owners stuff like that. Wherever I was asked, I would pretty much go and I you know, through that I learned a ton about what people thought of the product. I made changes from that and just made so many real life connections with people. And from there, you know, I started just to kind of you know, we moved into social media and some social media advertising, but really still at the Like, realize social. Yeah, exactly. And so, you know, donating to, um so to events, especially women focused events. Uh, and you know, just just getting the product out there, you know, interacting with influencers to to share messaging That's inspiring and uplifting, And that sort of thing and and empowering, Um, that's really what we're all about. Yeah, you know, people often forget about the power of connecting in person, even when it comes to marketing. And how did she Go hand in hand. You know someone meets you in person. They hear your story. They they meet the founder. You know, they try your product. There are more likely also to take that on to social. Maybe they might post about it. They'll likely follow you and engage with you. And And there's just something about going in that direction. That is really, really powerful. Have you found that to be true? Absolutely. You know, I mean, even though we are also connected, there's millions and millions of people in this country. Uh, depending on what market you're trying to hit. There are You know it. It's really like every area has certain influencers and certain people that are really active and they're out and about and they're bringing people together. And they're, you know, building community And those are those are the influencers, you know, And so, um, by you being out in those marketplaces interact with them, You end up forming connections that One always leads the next you know, they post about you and then and and say, Hey, you know they were great to work with and then their friends see it and they have opportunities And it's just it starts to steam roll. Yeah, And I like your definition of influencer. Because so often we just think about big social media influencers that have, you know, 67 figure followings. But there are these community influencers that might not have a really, really impressive A follower count on social media. But they are influential in the sense that if they tell their friends, their friends are going to listen. Or they might have certain connections that are beneficial and just having cheerleaders in general, whether it's on social media, or in person is very powerful to taking a brand that is obviously unique but in a competitive space and making it a reality, so kudos to you. Very exciting. Thank you. Yes. And thanks for being on the show today. Really appreciate it. Thank you so much. Have a great day. This is the empower recent interview series on business rock stars.

This list called the Dirty Dozen. Now, this is not the list of actors in that war movie from 50 years ago. This is a list of the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables. What can we do about this? I'm thinking about that old war movie with telly Savalas. Listen, Charles Bronson for it. It was kind of a scary movie there, but, yeah, you're right. I mean, this list is scarier because we're eating these fruits and vegetables on a regular basis. So I'm going to read it right now. This is called the dirty dozen list. These are the dirtiest fruits and vegetables in terms of pesticide residues in America. So listen carefully because a lot of these are in your kitchen right now. So we have Apples, strawberries, grapes, celery, peaches, spinach, sweet bell peppers, imported nectarines, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas and potatoes and get this pad. Every sample of imported nectarines and 99% of the apples tested positive for pesticide residues. The average potato Had more pesticides by weight than any other food. A single grape sample had 15 different pesticide residues on it, and samples of celery, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas and strawberries. Each had 13 different pesticide residues on them. No, I don't want to scare you away from eating more fruits and vegetables. In fact, quite the opposite is true for years now.
