A highlight from OUTCAST by Gloria Giorno
"Seek and Destroy that has been the theme of discussions of truth now for well I'm in my seventh season here and we started the show on Wynwood radio in Miami 2016 is when I agreed to do the show with them aired the first episode January of 2017 this is Ian Trottier here and today we are going to start talking if you are not familiar with the name Charlotte Iserbit she passed away about a year and a half ago she's a former advisor to the Department of Education under Ronald Reagan her story is very interesting and captivating because she talks about having received a list of these Skull and Bones members via mail that was sent to her father who was a Skull and Bones member at Yale and Anthony Sutton was hot on that trail so two names that you should familiarize yourself with and that is Charlotte Charlotte's work and that is the deliberate dumbing down of America she talks about the invasion of the American education system and that having been formalized under Jimmy Carter back in 1979 Department of Education so she talks about that through her book and then also what I was talking about was Anthony Sutton calling her being hot basically on the trail of dissecting the corruption that is it's really manipulation because Ella Hugh Yale was a major stockholder a main president of the British East Indies trading company that is a Rothschild controlled trading company and the Rothschild funded the American Revolution so I may be off here ladies and gentlemen but if you look at the flag that was flown above the John Paul Jones excuse me the USS Alfred commandeered by John Paul Jones on the Delaware that basically started the American Revolution that flag is basically identical to the British East Indies company flag and then that you trace that and you go back to Cambridge Massachusetts and something called the flag committee which is Continental Congress approved Washington Franklin adopted what became the first flag of the United what became known as the United States and that was the US Grand Union flag which as being designed by Betsy Ross that is the US Grand Union flag which is identical to the British East Indies company flag because that is where the financing came to fund Washington's army and then you ask well wait a second that's English and well yeah this it is English but it's not English because London the city of London is not technically part of England it is its own banking it's sovereign nation a Roman banking colony still in existence these are all facts and you can cross -check them but anyway so seek and destroy corruption that is how I that is that is how I theme my discussions my conversations my talks it's what I do in Trottier with discussions truth today we're gonna talk about the Department of Education rather the state of the education system in the United States so quickly before we bring the guests on we'll be we'll be talking to Gloria Giorno and her son Stevie and getting their view as conservatives what it's been like for Stevie to go through I think it's Belmont University as a conservative so without further ado thanks for tuning in for the podcast on and we're bringing on Gloria and Stevie right now calling Laurie and Stevie this is Ian Trottier for Discussions of Truth Gloria hi nice to meet meet you and welcome to Discussions of Truth I've looked at some of the work that you're you've excellent hi Stevie so thanks for for joining the the the show and please give listeners an introduction to who you are Gloria you can start tell listeners who you are what you what you do and then and then Stevie you can do the same please I try to destroy a young conservative and I also did a nonprofit the name of it is United Women Foundation what we do is mentor employ aid and young conservative women who are in Stevie's situation and we also give out scholarships to conservatives who are not in need of a scholarship but who are conservatives and who are promoting the conservative agenda in their lives thank you Gloria and that's United Women Foundation calm I'll go ahead and put a link to that in the episode Stevie go ahead and introduce yourself for us please well thank you very much for having us on my name is Stevie Giorno and I serve as the chairman of the Tennessee Young Republicans and I am the former student body president at Belmont University where I was attacked by the radical left for being proud of my country and being proud to be an American on the 4th of July in 2020 during the as a mother for protecting your your family and your country I've looked at the website I've looked a little bit about both of you and what's interesting is you have been you've come my way and your stories come my way through a contact there in Florida and your Stevie your story is daughter went through something very similar and in her university classes but Stevie go ahead and tell us a little bit about about what you experienced you were the student body president at Belmont University yet you were attacked for your political views isn't that right picture of myself in front of the White House and I captioned it that I was proud to be an American and I thanked those who had sacrificed and served so that we may have the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers intended for us and within 24 hours my fraternity was blackmailing me threatening to label me a racist and remove me from the fraternity there were hundreds of comments on my Instagram post and there were hundreds of signatures on a change .org petition that sought to remove me as the duly elected student body president even though I was elected unanimously with almost 99 98 % of the vote and so it was really bad that students friends of mine my fraternity brothers wanted to attack me because I was proud to be from this country you know my grandparents escaped from communism in Yugoslavia and my mother lived there for a year so I've heard the first -hand horrors of what happens in a communist country and I fear that our country is headed that way every single day. Now what's interesting is one of the articles that I that I went through briefly was is written by Campus Reform it's published on an online newsletter called Campus Reform and one of the stories that they have today actually talks about glorifying Che you Guevara know this is a this is a socialist figure that that helped with the with the cubist Cuban communist revolution and Fidel Castro you're you're talking about your family having come from communist Yugoslavia are you seeing are you seeing Stevie in in in in your experience on on campus now I don't know what you're doing now maybe you graduated you can bring us up to date with where you at right now but are you seeing some of these same the same signs that that perhaps your mother or your grandparents were talking about that were that were red flags for for communism growing within the country are you seeing that experiencing that I do and I think unfortunately it is getting worse specifically at Belmont University they refused the school is refusing to allow a turning point USA chapter on campus I think it it's it's it's awful it's an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom of belief to protest to assemble and so it's really unfortunate what's going on with with colleges and universities I graduated in the spring of 2021 but I have heard of the horror stories happening at private Christian schools so -called Christian schools happening across the country and until students and parents and grandparents begin to see what is happening you know the first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it exists and it's there and it's not going to get better until enough conservative students and parents realize that they need to stop funding the indoctrination machines of universities and change course well it's very brave of you to say that glory I want want to get your your view and and and I want to first first say this I opened this show up before I brought you on with talking about somebody named Charlotte Iserbyt and I'm happy to send you her link to her book it's called the deliberate dumbing down of America what she did was she started dissecting what was happening under the Reagan administration with the attack on the indoctrination that we're seeing fruits of today a few decades later but Gloria did you did you ever expect or suspect that something like this might happen to your son I I he gets into college were there any anything anything happening up to that time where he's now the student body president of Belmont University anything before that that you were that you questioned well you know hey they he might he might need to defend himself or was this a complete surprise to you it was a complete surprise there was absolutely nothing the handbook the literature the online documentation about Belmont University everything fit a conservative Christian agenda there was nothing I mean personally I think it's a bait and switch but there was absolutely nothing I was friends with some of the professors who are conservatives at Belmont or who were conservatives at Belmont and we had spoken for two years before Stevie made the decision to go there and no there was not any kind of indication that anything like this would happen now we would never allowed our son to want to go to a school where he would have been threatened for his beliefs I mean he had been working for Republican candidates since he was 17 years old so it was out in the open it's on his LinkedIn it's public so no I mean we we were told on every tour we were told at every meeting that this was a fully free campus there would be no harassment it was Christian it was conservative and I read the handbook and Stevie followed all the guidelines when these things did start to occur he did follow all the guidelines he followed all the rules he turned everything into administration and they did nothing absolutely nothing and Stevie yeah go ahead to this day they have not responded in any way shape or form nothing and this has been three years now so you have not gotten a formal response from the school administration Stevie you're simply in DC taking a photograph outside the White House expressing your gratitude for the country and the values that it stands for did you ever suspect this type of backlash coming from the because he knew that if he spoke out against them that they would send him to a camp where he'd never be heard from again and really that whole year of 2020 was either you agree with everything we're saying you endorse the BLM organization but we're gonna do everything we can to destroy you and in fact because Tennessee is a single -party consent state that means you can record conversations with only one person knowing I did record those conversations with my fraternity which my mom put into her book and in those conversations my fellow friends my fraternity brothers say if you do not apologize for your post if you do not endorse this group we're gonna do whatever it takes to destroy you and your career and your reputation so it's a more mild form of what happens in communist countries but because these students were not held accountable it is only going to get worse and worse and it did I mean there was one instance where a female student who worked at a fast -food restaurant I would go to for my breakfast in the mornings she admitted in the official College Democrat group text that she was putting quote gross stuff in my drinks every single day because I was a an awful conservative who loved this country and one endorsed the BLM organization and the school guess what the school did when I turned her in what did they do they accepted her into Belmont law school you gotta be kidding me I'm serious 100 % she was rewarded for attacking a political opponent and I think that's dangerous as we see what's going on with President Trump he is being attacked because he's leading in the polls and it's truly unfortunate that we're becoming a banana republic yeah did the did she make you sick with whatever she put in the drinks and we couldn't even get the Nashville police who are unfortunately very short staff due to the liberal City Council and the liberal mayor at the time unfortunately they were they were unable to investigate it because I was perfectly fine thankfully but they said since there was no lasting issues that they refused to investigate and then the school accepted this girl into law school with full knowledge of everything she had done struck so it it shows the systemic problem we're having and imagine if this is happening in a conservative Christian private university in Nashville Tennessee one of the most conservative states imagine what's going on in all 49 other states we don't have the ability to record conversations and to take screenshots of texts and emails and and have such transparency I mean it's terrifying to think what's happening in these other colleges yeah very well said Stevie tell us about that book and tell us about how tell us about how it's been received my husband and I we want to speak out on this we want people to know I need parents and grandparents to know what their children and yes very teen but there still are children what they face and what they are up against when they go away to school we need for parents to fight back we need for parents to take a stand if 40 % of students stopped attending their respective universities you know that the agenda at universities with administration would change so we as conservatives we have that title of being silent majority because usually we are silent well Stevie and I wanted to change that hence the book I use I feel that the book is an educational tool for parents learn from what happened to my son learn from the experience that we've had we went to this university many times it's not far from our home we investigated it we knew people who worked there who taught there and never once did we feel that it was going to be a threat to our son and look what happened so whatever you're seeing I dread to think what's going on at public schools I just dread but I want parents to learn learn read the book you'll see everything is documented in there as my son said fortunately we're able to record and we're able to use everything for information but we need for parents to be more active in their students and their children's educations even when they are at college because they are all indoctrination facilities I did live in a communist country I went to first grade in Zagreb which was then Yugoslavia in 1972 and I can tell you that on my way to school my walk to school every morning I had 1 ,000 US dollars in my backpack I knew if civil unrest broke out at the age of six I knew how to get out of Yugoslavia get into a cab that was waiting for me at the end of the hill and that cab driver would take me to the border of Yugoslavia in Italy where one of my aunts would meet me and my parents would come when they were able I also knew the police officer on the corner he wasn't there for me he wasn't there to make sure that I'd be safe or anybody else he was definitely there to protect the communist regime and Josip Tito who was the dictator at the time and the parallels that I saw with what I experienced living in a communist country and what my son endured at Belmont University it's there if it's clear as day and I want to enlighten everyone who wants to hear from me I want all parents to know this is happening in our country now too we are being silenced and shut down the title of the book folks is outcast how the radical left tried to destroy a young conservative and that is Stevie so Stevie was this a the attack on you was this coming from the BLM movement at Belmont University or in Nashville have you identified the nucleus of where this attack came from okay so let me ask you a broader question we saw during the Trump Tifa uprisings mainly Seattle Portland but obviously across the country Chicago New York but that coincided with this this COVID -19 virus outbreak as a as a university student you've now graduated but Stevie were you were you drawing any parallels to either of these things happening during the Trump administration that seemingly linked to a communist revolt within the country does that making sense were you able to draw any connect any dots Stevie we know from history that it usually doesn't work that way and the government's gonna keep taking more and more of our rights and when you couple that with what is happening what did happen in 2020 with with the riots and people getting away with committing crimes to where if you and I or anyone else who was a conservative did burn down a courthouse like they did in Nashville or protest and kill innocent people in the streets we would go to jail however because they were advancing a political movement that the liberal district attorneys in big cities supported they were let go and they were not punished like they should have been like we would have been so the hypocrisy is terrible I think it does parallel communism to where you know if you remember the black shirts Mussolini's black shirts taking control of the Italian government because they were the advancing political agenda and movement that the powers that be wanted them to they were able to harass and intimidate people into supporting them and I fear that our country is going that way and we need people to stand up now if we're ever hoping to take back our country and get it back on the right track and under control Gloria the book is recently published it looks like it was just published last month and you've got us forward by Sam Sorbo how's the reception of the book been so far what are people saying who have you spoke to about it how is it being received lot Gloria a of media outlets that are reaching out to us I'm being asked to speak almost on a daily basis different organizations different groups Stevie and I have traveled to a lot of different states throughout the country and we will continue to be touring and we are I have started a conversation and parents are now extending that conversation with their friends and that is the goal we need to start with one person talking to another and now the growth has been exponential it's incredible the book is selling very well it's available on Amazon and wherever books are sold but from what I have witnessed and the calls I am getting yes it is and I mean if we as conservatives don't speak up we're gonna be done this is it and if America Falls there is nowhere else to go and our children are being indoctrinated I don't care what level of schooling it's that they're being indoctrinated on every single level and if parents do not set a strong foundation in the household when the child is born and continue that throughout a child's life when they go to college always we will not be America any longer so the book is being well received I do have parents who have reached out to me and who have asked me questions likewise I do have some haters but that's how I know I'm making a difference because the hate is there as well yeah absolutely well said it's like when you went once you're censored you know that you're putting up the correct information on the online right Stevie are you concentrating on any particular campuses as you tour the country you point of a Christian organization and unfortunately they they canceled the meeting that was going to happen at Belmont and so been trying to help the students out there at Belmont but really I think the key thing is getting in front of as many young people as possible who are conservative and letting them know that they're not alone that the hardships they're going through have happened before and they're gonna happen again and we've got to stand up tall for what we believe in and we can't be scared of people saying mean things about us or what people put on social media or what they may say to us we've got to stand up for what we believe in if there's any chance of saving our country thank you very much let me ask you this question Gloria as we as we wind down and then I want to give each of you an opportunity to leave listeners with some final words and thoughts but Gloria as somebody who's lived in a communist country and it sounded like you did at least one year schooling their first grade what's happening right now to the border of your country what's happening down there they believe they have freedom and to an extent they do and I equate it to when I speak I speak to a lot of young people because young people are what United Women Foundation is mostly about and so when I speak I they look at me very oddly when I tell my story but what I have found that works very well is I bring up a lion at a zoo and he's in a zoo he's caged his needs are met he has food he has shelter he has water he has medical attention and it's all for free but he is still in that cage but he is able to roam in that cage correct and then we have the next picture a lion picture lion in Wyoming in Montana anywhere in this country roaming freely that lion bends for himself he finds his own food he finds his own shelter he finds his own water he takes care of himself that lion is independent to me that is the difference that is the bottom line that is the difference between communism and America that is the difference between our constitution is that lion that is roaming free throughout this country and that's what we are right now so that is something that I think resonates with young people and I I believe that putting it in a perspective of a picture like that they are beginning to understand a little bit I hope at least I mean I don't know right now what I'm seeing is a lot of people have said we cannot have an opinion because we have not experienced it which truly breaks my heart my family in Croatia thinks that they are free in effect my family basically is a caged lion yeah incredible and and let me review what is happening right now at the southern border in in the U .S.
A highlight from HOTTEST Altcoin Right Now! (What Is Ton Coin?)
"It's a story that spans 8 ,000 acres of Blue Ridge Mountain beauty bathed in shades of orange and crimson. Fall won't last forever. Savor it while you can at Biltmore. Plan your stay at Biltmore .com. The past six Septembers in a row have been bearish for Bitcoin, but there's another coin that's on the verge of breaking into the top ten that woke up well before September ended. Toncoin, that stands for the open network, is on a fast track to onboarding millions of users in the next few years thanks to their integration with Telegram. You might not know that Toncoin and Telegram have a controversial past that dates back years before the recent announcement. So let's dive in and discover crypto. My name is AJ writes crypto and today we are going to talk about Toncoin, which has practically gone viral in just the past week. Some of you might not know this, but back in 2018, Toncoin was actually developed by, guess who? Telegram. For the record, it was called Gram back then. But anyways, Telegram raised well over a billion dollars in fundraising, but unfortunately they had to give it back to the investors and pay an $18 .5 million fine to the SEC due to a violation of federal securities laws. They got sued by the SEC before they even got the wheels spinning. Classic. Once Telegram was forced to abandon the project to stay out of hot water, a handful of dedicated developers in the community took it over because since it's open source, the code was on GitHub and they knew they had something special on their hands. Well, what's so special about it? Do you know how Ethereum planned on working out their scalability issues with sharding? Well, this is something Toncoin already has figured out since the project was designed for millions and millions of people to use it. Toncoin has an intimidating block time of five seconds and a time of finality under six seconds, not to mention near instant cross shard communication. If you take a peek at their roadmap, you will see how far they've already come and they have been building out this massive ecosystem slowly but surely over the years. Toncoin is not just the blockchain. They're also building out a decentralized storage system, a payment settlement system, and a proxy that allows you to change your IP address with zero downtime. According to their website, they have gone as far to say that they're building the reliable internet of the future, kind of like ICP. And of course, they have NFTs, cross chain bridges, and DNS domain names as well. But AJ, what about the price action? If you want the drop on that, you're going to have to stick around to the end of the video. My question is, how did this layer one get to where it is now? Well, their beginnings help explain this because their current consensus mechanism is proof of stake, but they began as an IPOW or initial proof of work. In June of 2020, using special Giver smart contracts, 98 .55 % of the total supply became available to mine, and for the next two years, they did just that. In June of last year, the last Toncoin was mined and then they switched to proof of stake, which is why the chain is super fast, efficient, and have the eco -friendly box checked. I do find it pretty insane on how fast Toncoin climbed the ladder in blockchain, but considering the plan was to always be tethered to Telegram, it does make sense. To play the devil's advocate, I have to address the issues that some people already have with this project. First of all, there are already people on the internet pushing back against Toncoin's claims about being decentralized. Like always, I will remind you that decentralization is a spectrum, but where this project falls on that spectrum is the real question. For example, Ethereum has over 700 ,000 validators, where Tonstat .com shows that Toncoin only has 351. That's probably because you have to have 300 ,000 ton to become a validator, which is about $558 ,000 today. Haha, it cost a ton. Okay, I'm done. Another worry that stands out to me is their rich list, or the percentage of the supply held by the largest holders. Also not the best look here for Toncoin, because according to Coincart .com, the top 10 holders own 77 .7 % of the supply, and the top 100 holders own 90 .7 % of the supply. Yeah, I mean, adoption is great, but those numbers are pretty terrifying. Another question people have is that the circulating supply is over 3 .4 billion, but why is the total supply over 5 billion coins? Are they just going to unload a billion coins on an unexpected market, or what? Well, not exactly. In a community vote earlier this year in February, they voted to suspend all of the inactive miner wallets who have never made an outgoing transaction. The vote went through, and over a billion coins worth over $2 .5 billion were suspended. For the record, these coins will be frozen for four years, so in 2027, this will come back into play. This vote also had a pretty harsh effect on the circulating supply as well. If you look at this chart here, posted by Toncoin, after the vote, the circulating supply increased from 1 .22 billion to almost 4 billion. This chart they posted is not 100 % accurate, because we know the circulating supply is currently 3 .4 billion, but at the end of the day, the supply still increased by over 180 % because of this vote. Moving forward, at least the total supply will only increase by 0 .6 % every year. The silver lining here is that even if some people didn't like it, in terms of tokenomics, the worst is behind us. And sure, there are some things that kind of worry me about this project, but the visibility crypto is going to get by being integrated into Telegram is absolutely massive. And I still think this coin could probably put out some pretty serious numbers. According to these charts Toncoin posted, Telegram is projected to have 1 .5 billion users by 2028, and if Toncoin onboards 30 % of Telegram's users, they will have over 500 million users in their ecosystem. They have a long way to go because according to Tonstat .com, there's currently only around 3 .3 million accounts and less than 800 ,000 active on -chain wallets. But hey, let's hope for the best. Considering that Toncoin's market cap sits just below 9 .5 billion today, I'm really interested to see how far this will go if they really do manage to onboard 500 million users. It's also worth pointing out that this project is already ranked number 12. I mean, it's on the verge of breaking into the top 10 by market cap in all of crypto. And the thing is, the largest crypto exchanges haven't listed it yet. It's only available on Kucoin, Bitfinex, Uniswap, and a few others. I am definitely interested to see how the price will react if it starts landing major listings. Time will tell. Speaking of price, Toncoin is currently hanging out around the $1 .90 mark after it was rejected at the $2 level after its latest pump. According to Masari, Toncoin put in its all -time high of $5 .16 on Christmas day of 2021. This isn't a price prediction video, but remember that Toncoin's supply was much lower back then than what it is now. With that said, to get back to that all -time high of $5 .16, Toncoin would need a $17 .8 billion market cap, which is 173 % increase from its current level. Considering how high its market cap already is, if you want to get a 10x out of Toncoin, you're kind of asking for a lot because that would require the market cap to exceed $65 .4 billion. I think this project has a lot of potential to onboard millions of new users, and I'm definitely excited to see what becomes of its ecosystem, but I am a little worried about its upside considering how much more work the market cap has to do to put in a 10x. But hey, it's crypto, anything is possible. My name is AJ writes crypto, that's all I got, have yourself a great day. From training materials to resources that can help you generate a greater profit.

A highlight from 1256. $300 Billion Coming To Bitcoin ETF w/Mark Yusko
"All right, so welcome in today. We're going to be diving into topics around ETFs and also what is happening with the SEC in terms of their enforcement actions and some of the things they've been doing that could be causing a slowdown in innovation for blockchain. We'll break into all this good stuff today. I think you'll like it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in to Tech Path. Joining me today is a regular guest, one that I think you guys all love, and that is Mr. Marc Usko coming in from Morgan Creek Capital. Great to have you on the show today. No, great to be with you, Paul, as always, and happy Friday. It's going to be a good one, Marc. Let's first of all get into a few things. I want to lead off the show with a tweet from James Seyfert, who is one of the Bloomberg analysts on ETFs. He does a really good breakdown. He's been on our show before. There's some dates to watch here. We've got middle of October, next major days to watch. October 16th with Global, and then also October 7th. And then you've got all these scenarios playing out right here with iShares, which of course is BlackRock. I'll zoom in on that a little bit so you guys can see it. Second deadline coming up on 10 -17, and then a slew right there on that same day. First of all, I want to get your opinion on, do you think that this October is when the SEC might actually give us an early Christmas present? Or are you just going to get pushed again? No, look, I'm 50 -50 at this point. So I do think more tricks than treats for anyone who's 10 -17 date. So any decision before that date, I think is a negative decision. I'm not sure it'll be an outright denial, but will definitely be an extension and a push. And then we come to the big dog. I believe, and I've said multiple times, that BlackRock will be the first one. I've actually been saying that for over a year. I actually might even go stronger and say, oh, that'll never happen. That would be too much corruption. Well, I'm just saying it's certainly possible. What's probably more likely is BlackRock first, and then a gap, and then some number of others. But the thing is, whoever's first is going to get the vast majority of assets. Vast majority. Well, first mover is always going to be taking. I mean, that's just like the gold ETF, kind of the same kind of scenario. Yeah. The gold ETF is an example with GLD. You had the Bitcoin futures ETF with Bitto getting 98 % and then a couple others getting like 1 % each. So that's just my belief. And I believe it's who you know in this game, not what you know. There are a lot of people who have should gotten approved. The Winklevoss twins were the first to apply. They should have gotten approved. There was no reason not to approve it other than, again, kind of the way the game is played and the people in charge want to be in charge. So any new disruptive players I think are unlikely. Cathie Wood partnered with one of our companies, portfolio Amun, to do 21 shares. That looked like a great application ding pushed out. I think Bitwise is a day ahead of iShares on 10 .16 as much as I would love it. Again, portfolio company, full disclosure. I would love for them to get approved. I just don't think it's going to happen. Again, I don't think it'll be denied. I just think they'll be pushed. And here's why I'm 50 -50, Paul, to answer the question. I think they could approve on the 17th, but I don't think they will. I think they'll push it into next year. So you push 90 days. That gets you into January. January 15th. Yeah. You could push again then into March, April. But that's it. Then you have to approve. Now, what's interesting is we have this little thing called the halving coming up in mid -April of 24. And so it would be an interesting alignment of stars. But I said, could they pull the trigger on BlackRock in a month? Yeah, they could. Yeah. All right. Well, with that and to your point, the third deadline, just so everybody can put it on your calendar out there, you've got January 15th for BlackRock and then moving in all the way into March, what we're going to discuss there. March would be an interesting timing. I think you're right, because obviously the halving right there on the cusp of that, along with maybe a little bit of lightening the load in terms of inflation, because I feel like we're going to continue to see some inflation hits through the end of the year. What is your thought on how the inflation numbers came in this week and how the Fed might react? I don't think the Fed cares about gasoline prices, quite honestly, Paul. All this little blip is gasoline prices, all of it. I think most of the other components were actually negative. And the gasoline prices are because Saudi has decided to go a different direction. We had a very hunky dory relationship with Saudi from 1973 till now. And that's clearly over, right? The big guy went over to Saudi right before the election last year and tried to get them to pump more to get oil prices down and gasoline prices down, because there's this inverse correlation between presidential popularity and gas prices. And they basically said pound sand. And so he came down, he came in and said, well, this is a convenient decision to get gasoline prices down. Guess what happened? Democrats did pretty well in the election. And because there's no way out for that now, though. I mean, there's no way. Now we have an empty SPR. And the thing is, we can't fill it up ourselves because, and again, not to get too technical, but there's, there's light sweet crude, which we produce and a number of other places, Nigeria and others produce. And then there's heavy sour crude, more sulfur content, because we cut this deal with the Saudis in the seventies, we built all of our refining inventory infrastructure, sorry, around processing heavy sour. Yeah. Well, here's the problem. If now Saudi is going to sell their heavy sour to China and Russia and other places, and we're not going to get as much of it, what are we going to do? Well, we've got to build new refineries or retrofit the refiner. It turns out no one wants a new refinery in their backyard. Yeah. I think I'm right. It's been like 30 years since we built a refinery. It turns out they spit out, you know, pollutants and things like that. So nobody really wants one around. We all like driving cars by the way. And and living our lives and, you know, Oh, well, you know, we can, we can stop using oil. No, we can't. Nothing you do every, I mean, everything you do every day, the vast majority of it is powered by oil and gas, the vast majority. And yeah, you say you could get an electric car, but where'd the steel in that car come from? Did they make a little electricity? No. How about the plastics? Nope. Oil. So it's just, it's kind of comical when I hear we're going to, you know, outlaw fossil fuels, but back to the inflation number I think this might not be temporary in the sense that Saudi announced, they're going to do a voluntary cut. Why? Cause they're just sticking the knife in a little bit deeper because they're like, all right guys, you said you were going to refill the SPR. You didn't do it. Oil prices were all the way down in the sixties. Could have easily done it for sure. Now oil prices are in the nineties. Yeah. We're going to hit a hundred bucks a barrel for sure. How does this, okay. So when you look at that Mark and you look at an election year coming in, you've got all this pressure from the macro side, including most likely jobs market getting a lot stiffer. Companies starting to really get some pressure on. We had bankruptcies at the highest point ever. We've had a very long period of time for independent companies. This does not look like a rosy picture. Where do you think we come out of this in relationship to the timing of the havening, a Bitcoin ETF, maybe into next summer? How far into 2024 do you think this happens? So I believe the ETF will be approved sometime around year end, whether it's in early January or December, sometime in that timeframe. And I think that will pave the way for a very large influx of capital. I know you've had Eric on the show about Eunice and he does this great work, right? I mean, there's 30 trillion with a T 30 trillion. Remember 1 trillion is a dollar every second for 31 ,710 years, but 30 trillion is going to come into, or that's the total amount of money managed by RIAAs and others that is not allowed at this point for whatever silly reason to own Bitcoin. And they can't own GBTC and they can't own Bitcoin miners and they've called a timeout. Well, once there's an ETF, particularly if it's an ETF that BlackRock runs, there are going to be no excuse and they're all going to have to approve it. Their clients have been asking for it. I would say I have a family harmony account at UBS. They let me buy what I want to buy. And they're like, no. So I think all that goes away. And I think Eric's number is, let's say one 10th of 1 % comes in. That's 30 billion. Well, but wait, 30 billion on 500 billion. That's not that much. Well, no, it's not 500 billion. 400 billion of the 500 billion of Bitcoin's market cap doesn't really trade. It's either locked up like the Satoshi wallet or the Winklevoss wallet or, you know, hodlers that just said, you know, take it out of my cold, dead hands. It's only about a hundred billion that is the free float to borrow a TradFi term. And so 30 billion on 100, that will move the price. But I don't think it's going to be 10 basis points. I think it's 1%. I think you have to do 1%. As a fiduciary, if you got, you know, 50 % in equities at some of the highest valuations in history, and you got another 30 % in bonds, which have had the first two negative years in the history of the bond market, 140 years of history, two negative years, looking pretty ugly. And you got this asset that is the best performing asset again, 11 of the 14 years that Bitcoin has been alive. It's been the best performing asset of all assets. It's the best performing asset then this year. Yeah. Eric hit on his prediction about 150 billion in terms of market impact. Do you like that number or do you think that he's still like it? Well, again, I think 150 billion would be half a percent, right? Instead of 10 basis points. And it looks like he's updated his, his thoughts. I'll go further and say 1 % seems more likely that'd be 300 billion, 300 billion on a hundred billion of free float price goes up a lot, a lot, a lot. And here's the, the interesting thing, Paul, is the way halvings work is the fair value increases. So we've got a tailwind that the fair value today based on Metcalfe's law model that Tim Peterson runs and that I think is fantastic, says that the fair value is somewhere in the low fifties, 52, 53, let's just call it 50. So at the halving, fair value doubles. What do you mean, Mark? What are you talking about? Well, think about it. The miners who secure the network, their costs are fixed, mining machines and electricity. So if their block rewards, the number of rewards that they're paid to secure the network gets cut in half and the price doesn't move, then they're out of business. So there's a built in mechanism to move the price higher, which is actually really interesting because that attracts attention because there's movement. And so long story short, fair value, every halving added has a zero. So we went from a hundred to a thousand, then we went from a thousand to 10 ,000. Now we go from 10 ,000 to a hundred thousand. So a fair value is a hundred thousand and we're trading at 26. It's a pretty rapid increase to fair value, I think, as investors buy things that are below fair value. But then what happens in the post fall halving, you get this parabolic blow off top. And in the previous cycle, fair value was around 30K. We got all the way to 69. That was because there was too much leverage and too much gambling and speculating. I don't think we go 2X this time or two and a half X this time. Could we get one and a half X? Sure. That gives about 150K, something like that. Yeah. Well, that is OK. So that's very intriguing. If you're if you're estimating this could be in the 300 billion dollar area, you know, for based on, you know, just the exposure to these funds and obviously how that might play out. How do you think retail response to this? Do you think retail is going to come in like a banshee coming in on this with a lot of now what would be legitimized ETFs? How do you think they play? Again, it's I've been saying this for five years. My hashtag get off zero zero is the wrong number, right? This is a truly unique diversifying asset that must be in everyone's portfolio. Doesn't have to be your whole portfolio. I never said that. It should be at least one percent.
A highlight from Dr. James Lindsay (Encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas Show. We'll get you from point A to point B. But if you're looking for point C, well, buddy, you're on your own. But if you wait right here, in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now here's your Ralph Cramden of the Airways, Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Right now, I want to briefly interview our friend Robert Netsley. This is something I don't know. I get so excited about how it's possible to change the world with where our money is invested. I'll be talking about it. But there's an action point. You have to go to inspireadvisors .com slash Eric. I'm going to repeat this over and over. I want everyone on this program to do it. It is free. It is free. And it is very, very important. We need to get activated, folks. We need to bust out of the inertia. And we need to get activated. And so, where your money is, inspireadvisors .com slash Eric. That's the action point. But let me play my interview with Robert Netsley. Folks, you know that when I find the solution to a problem, I get very excited. If you've been listening to this program for a while, you know that I talk about people of faith being active in their communities, in how they spend their money, in how they vote, in every way. And one of the things that got me really excited when I discovered Robert Netsley, he's with Inspire Investing, he is helping people do something, which I guess we can talk about it, is even better than just spending your money in good places and not spending your money in bad places. But where is your money invested? Is it invested in companies that share your values? Is your money invested in companies that are working against your values, and I would say against God's values? And so, we bring him on now. Robert Netsley, welcome back. It's a pleasure to be here, Eric. As always, thanks for having me. I get excited every time I talk to you just because there's a solution, because this is the kind of thing that I would want to dream up. I would say, can't somebody figure out a way, when we talk about all the money that's out there, people of faith in America. What's that? No, I wasn't saying anything. Yeah, people of faith in America have a lot of money. It's not just they spend a lot of money, but they have a lot of money invested in retirement funds, whatever. And a lot of that, as I've learned in talking to you, is with companies that are really bad, that are really woke, that are working against everything we believe in. So, then the question is, how do I figure that out? How do I get my money out of those places? And you have come up with a solution, and I should tell people, I'll repeat it again and again, inspireadvisors .com slash Eric. That's the website, inspireadvisors .com slash Eric. If people go to inspireadvisors .com slash Eric, Robert Netsley, what will they find there? How have you solved this problem? Well, they'll find an offer that our staff has done for, I don't know how many, countless of thousands of investors around the country, around the world. And we're making a special offer here for your listeners is to just help you understand what you own. It's the first step. And so, my personal story, I was working at one of the big four Wall Street investment bank in their investment department. And long story short, just realized one day, here I am president of our local pro -life pregnancy center, and I own three stocks of companies manufacturing abortion drugs. So, every time a young lady goes across the street to plan a parent who has an abortion, I just made money on that transaction. I literally profited from that transaction. And then you go down the laundry list of all sorts of other things that are going on in the portfolio, LGBT activism, human trafficking, et cetera. And I'm investing in these businesses, I'm profiting from these businesses, and likely so are you. And I'm not here to be your moral police, that's not my position. But what we want to do is help people understand what it is that they're putting their money into. It's not just a mutual fund ticker symbol with some dollars attached. There are real companies doing real things, some of which are incredibly evil and immoral, and it would turn your stomach if you realized what the money is that they're putting into your pocket and what you're helping to fund. And basically, so this report will show you exactly down at the nitty gritty of on this date, this company gave this much money to Planned Parenthood, let's say, or what have you. And so that you can then be informed and then make informed decisions about how you want to invest your money, which we believe is God's money in a way that honors him, helps society thrive, stops undermining your deeply held values, the list goes on. So, that's God's mandate is this commandment to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength. And the idea is that if you act like, well, that doesn't matter, everything matters. And it's only inertia, which is the devil owns inertia. When you don't do anything, the devil wins and his values win. So, here is an opportunity, folks, for you to take your money out of these companies or to even know where your money is invested. What is your money, which you're responsible for? It's God's money. Where, who's it helping? What are you invested in? So, if you go to inspireadvisors .com slash Eric, I'll say it again, inspireadvisors .com slash Eric, you can get a report. You can learn, this is free, obviously, Robert, this is free. Right. Yeah. Complimentary, totally complimentary. We're passionate about spreading a movement. There are millions of Christians and others around the world who are moving their money by the billions of dollars out of the woke investment firms that are doing everything they can to, frankly, ruin our cherished ways of life in many ways and just put it into investments that just are as equally wise and financially viable and everything else. They just happen to be in companies that are just doing their job. If they're making shoes, they're making shoes, not sponsoring abortion legislation or what have you. So, yeah, totally free. And man, I want to stress the size of the movement too. There is a movement of people. You're not alone. This is by God's grace, where we've been one of the fastest growing investment firms in the nation and the top three fastest growing investment firms in the nation for the past number of years. We're managing over $2 .3 billion and we're not the only firm here. We have colleagues that work labor alongside. This is a movement and you get to be a part of that. If you go to inspireadvisors .com slash Eric, you figure out how easy it is to just be intentional instead of conforming to Wall Street recommendations for your life, which might not be in your best interest. So, please consider that. Ladies and gentlemen, look, this is game changing stuff. I want to be really clear. This is game changing stuff. If everybody listening to this program would do this and you would take your money out of the funds that are doing evil things, it is a game changer in America because not only are you defunding these companies from doing bad things, but you're giving companies an incentive to do the right thing. You're saying, you know what, we better be careful. We shouldn't give our money to Planned Parenthood or to whatever evil things they're doing because you know what, there's going to be pushback. We're going to lose people. People aren't going to invest in us. So, I'm asking you to go to inspireadvisors .com slash Eric. It is free, folks. It is free. Please do this. Resist the inertia.

As I think I promised you in the previous segment, today it's my privilege to introduce to you someone to whom I think you ought to have been introduced much earlier than now. His name is James Lindsay. Some of you will be familiar with him. He's tough to sum up, and those are my favorite kind of people because I aspire to be one of those kind of people. His bio says he's an American -born author, mathematician. You see, we've already taken a sharp left, and professional troublemaker. He's written many books on a range of subjects, religion, philosophy of science, postmodern theory. Two, he's a leading expert on critical race theory, which means, of course, that he rejects it utterly. He's written many books. Why don't we just get him on here? James Lindsay, welcome to the program. Hey, Eric. Great to see you. You don't sound too enthusiastic. You don't want to oversell. Now, listen. Yeah, it's morning. Listen, you. I know it's early where you are, but honestly, you are tough to sum up. For my audience that is not familiar with you, I know you through turning point events and other things and here and there, but how would you help somebody understand how you got to be doing what you're doing now, and you're an expert on critical race theory, and how did this start for you? Where did you grow up? Can we start there? Yeah, we can go all the way back. Actually, my family is from two different parts of New York State, but nowhere near the city, so I have roots, New York but we moved down to East Tennessee very early on in my life when I was five. I grew up primarily in East Tennessee, so I'm an Appalachian culturally, but with this parentage that made fun of Appalachian culture that didn't quite let it take full root. Difficult to sum up even from childhood, I suppose, but I grew up in East Tennessee. You're not part of a jug band, is that what you're trying to tell me? No, I'm not. I did learn at one point when I was a teenager to play the spoons, but that's been a while.

I'm on a bunch of pop culture podcasts this week. Did a rewatchables on Monday night. We did Black Hat. Also was on the Big Picture. We did a big Denzel Washington movie draft. I got way too competitive. And then on Wednesday night, Amanda Dobbins and I on the Prestige TV Podcast, we broke down the first two episodes of season three of The Morning Show. The most ridiculous show on television, not just this year, but every year it's on. It just wins the title automatically. If they had a ridiculous show category at the Emmys, they wouldn't even have any of their nominees. I mean, maybe winning time would get nominated. I don't know. But Morning Show just clears it out. What a batshit, crazy, ridiculous show. Wow. It's really like they created a podcast thing so we could just break down the morning show. That's really, I think, the real reason behind podcasting in general. Coming up on this podcast, Million Dollar Picks and a little Vikes Eagles at the top. And then editor at large at the Ringer, Brian Curtis, who was also a giant Cowboys fan, comes on and talk about the Cowboys. Could this be the year? Keep saying that, but could this be the year? And we talked some NFL stuff. We talked some sports media stuff. We talked about documentaries and just all the stuff that happens when Brian Curtis comes on. Oh, we talked about Joe Buck and Troy Aikman as well, who have hit a really interesting milestone as a combo. So that happened. And then Kevin Hench, my buddy, the Red Sox fired their GM today, and we couldn't resist spending 20 minutes recapping. One of the four -year oddest, strangest four -year runs the Red Sox have ever had. And we're still in the middle of it. And I still don't understand why Mookie Betts isn't on the team but also like, man, since the 2018 World Series, the Red Sox have just been a hot dumpster fire. And I say that knowing that they almost made the World Series two years ago, but when you look at everything that happened, wow. So Hench comes on and talk about that. It is all next. First, our friends from Pearl Jam. ["Pearl Jam Theme Song"] All right, I'm taping this part of the podcast. It is 11 .31 East Coast time. East Coast Bill is here. East Coast Bill is in Boston. I was visiting my daughter and doing some other stuff. And Thursday Night Football came on and I thought it would be a great idea to do the top segment after Eagles Vikings. East Coast Bill fell asleep at halftime. It was a new record for me. I guess I'm old. I have another birthday coming up this week. This is why I live on the West Coast because I talk about sports for a living. And East Coast Bill gets a little sleepy when the game is kind of boring and plodding along. So East Coast Bill missed some time, had to catch up, had to do a little rewind. Fortunately, there's so many commercials. I was able to still watch anything, but the Eagles beat the Vikings. They're now 2 -0 on the season. And I would say it's an uninspiring 2 -0. They probably shouldn't have covered against the Pats. They could have lost. This game they win, they don't cover. I guess on the good side, the DeAndre Swift, they traded like a 15th round pick in 2038 for them. And this little way they put together their offense where they load up on wide receivers, they hit the jackpot with hurts, and then they just say, you know what we're going to do? Just grab running backs because there's 98 of them every year. We're just going to grab two and pay nothing for them. So offensively, they look great. Defensively, you saw it last week with the Pats. The Pats were able to throw it on them. Mack almost had 300 yards in the last three quarters of that game. This game, Kirk Cousins, over and over again, heroically going for the cover, finally gets it. The Vikings cover, they don't win. Home team's now 5 -12 against the spread this season. Underdogs are 10 -7 against the spread. But for the most part, not allowed to report, the Eagles just state. They messed around in the first quarter and then said, screw it, and ran the ball down Minnesota's throat. I was thinking, Eagles, Cowboys, if you were going to make a combined over or under for wins for them, and I gave you 26, would you go over or under 26 wins combined for the two teams? They're 3 -0 right now. I would probably go over, especially when you look at the NFC and you think Philly, Dallas, San Francisco, lock those three down. I like Green Bay, Detroit, maybe New Orleans, Atlanta, and maybe that's the seven for the playoffs. And then you have Tampa Bay and the Rams. Who knows what was real and what wasn't real. Tampa Bay beat Minnesota by three in week one. We're like, oh, Tampa Bay, that's interesting. But now Minnesota's 0 -2, maybe that doesn't even matter. Rams, who knows? I mean, they just have so few good players that the moment two of them get hurt, it feels like their free fall will happen. So the NFC is already kind of uninteresting, I guess is my bigger point. Unless the Giants can rally, and who knows after the 40 -0 debacle last week, they're playing Arizona this week, so they looked out of that. But for the most part, it seems like three good teams, maybe the Packers, maybe the Lions, maybe the Saints, and then we're going to have a really bad seven seed. So if you're Minnesota, and you're looking at 31 of 270 teams started 0 -2 and made the playoffs since 1990. 31 out of 270. I can't do math, but that's not good. If you're Minnesota, at what point do you consider trading Cousins? Cousins was all over the place on the internet this week as a possible Rogers replacement. He makes 35 million this year, that's it. The Jets, I think, could do some chicanery if they wanted to. They have this thing where the Packers, it's a conditional, I think second, that turns into a first, but the Packers would have to waive the right for the condition. Clearly, Rogers is going to play 70 % of the plays, but still, they'd have to figure out some way. But if you're the Jets, could you somehow trade for Cousins and save your season? We're going to find out a lot about the Jets this week against Dallas. They get annihilated and they're one -on -one for the season, but annihilates Dallas them and they have to look at their offense and go, all right, we have a really good team. What are we going to do? Is it Jacoby Brissett or do we swing big and try to get Cousins for a year? Cousins has over 700 yards and six TDs in the first two weeks. He's been a fantasy god. I don't know how that plays out. I wish it was like basketball where I could just put stuff in the trade machine and see if it's going to work. For some reason, we made football trades more complicated than basically anything on the earth. I have no idea how the Jets would trade for Cousins, how it'd work, what the mechanics of it would be. What's he worth? Is he worth a first rounder for one year? Is he worth a third rounder? You just never know. Again, DeAndre Swift went for a 15th rounder in 2038. Cousins, I have my eye on because if you're Minnesota, you're not good. You were completely lucky last year to go 13 and four, whatever it was. Now that's evened out and maybe you start looking around and going, all right, let's pack in this year. I don't know what would have to happen, what number they would have to get to. Would they have to be one and four, one and five, one and six? But Cousins to the Jets, it's a fun talk radio topic, at least. We're not doing talk radio here. We're doing sleepy sports podcasting, but Cousins to the Jets has always felt right. It's always felt kind of perfect. He always just felt like a Jet waited to happen at some point in his career. The Jets fans listening to this right now are like, how can he keep doing this to us? We just had the Rogers thing. We had Zach Wilson. Now you're gonna throw Cousins at us. But again, Cousins, a little bit of a turnaround. He was in that Netflix show. He's kind of the big winner of quarterbacks with Mariota being the big loser. But I feel like the tide's turning on Cousins. Even Primetime Kirk today, always a disaster, gets the cover. Who knows? Put him in New York. We'll see. Philly's got, they're just basically have to figure out what their team is. They've already had a bunch of injuries and they even had a little AJ Brown, Jalen Hurts. Who knows what happened on the sidelines there, but didn't look awesome. But they have two months here to figure out their team. They're a big stretch. Week nine, Sunday, Dallas, that's home in Philly. Bi -week, week 11 at Kansas City on a Monday night. Week 12, Buffalo home. Week 13, San Francisco home. And week 14 at Dallas. So again, Dallas at KC, Buffalo, San Francisco at Dallas. And that's gonna be the five game stretch that determines are we a one seed? Are we a two seed? What is our season gonna look like? And they just have to get there. They have to stay healthy and they have to get to that point. So not a lot of lessons from Philly, Minnesota. Do I regret staying up? Although I guess I didn't stay up because I got this little nap in at halftime.
A highlight from Impeachment Inquiry Launched Into Joe Biden!
"Why doesn't Mitch McConnell want to make things difficult for the Democrats? Why does Mitch McConnell say that impeaching Joe Biden after the level of corruption and the lies and the disastrous reign of this president has been exposed for all the world to see? Why do you suppose Mitch McConnell thinks it's a bad idea to begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden? I honestly don't get it. Maybe you do. Now, thankfully, he's trying to hedge his comments a little bit. He gave an interview to The New York Times that I think it's bad for the country. Think it's bad for the country. Here he was on Fox News Channel, a little bit of a back and forth with reporters. This was covered on Fox News. Here is Senator Mitch McConnell being asked about Kevin McCarthy's announcement yesterday that the House Republicans will begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden. There's cut seven. We believe it was a good idea for Speaker McCarthy to open that inquiry to the president today. The impeachment inquiry? The impeachment inquiry? Do you support it? Do you support that as a good idea? I'm sorry. I couldn't hear you. The impeachment inquiry? The impeachment inquiry that Speaker McCarthy opened announced the president's items. Yeah, look, I'm going to say it again. And I don't think that Speaker McCarthy needs any advice from the Senate on how to run the House. OK. He's on record as saying it's not a great idea. He's on record as believing that it's bad for America. I like fighters. I like people. If Trump has symbolized anything whatsoever, it's that Americans demand a fighting spirit from our elected representatives, period. That's it. Is Mitch McConnell, who is agreeing with the Democrats that it's a bad idea to impeach Joe Biden. Do you have a theory as to what his problem is? I'm just going to turn it over to you. We also have some breaking news. The escaped killer, that escaped prisoner, after two weeks on the run, has been captured in the state of Pennsylvania. So the country can breathe a sigh of relief. A very dangerous criminal is behind bars again. So a little update on that news as we welcome you into the Relief Factor studios for a Wednesday I just have a simple question for you. Why does Mitch McConnell agree with the Democrats that it's a bad idea to begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden? 1 -800 -655 -MIKE they impeached Trump twice. And they'll believe me, they'll try again if he wins. So we're supposed to roll over and let the Democrats essentially, you know, have their way with us. You go ahead and do whatever you want to us. We won't fight back against you. Let's dive into this. And I want you to swamp my phone lines, flood my phone lines. The Ph .D. weight loss and nutrition phone number is 800 -655 -MIKE, 800 -655 -6453. Go ahead and tell me why you think Mitch McConnell is unwilling to fight back against the Democrats. 800 -655 -MIKE, 800 -655 -6453. Hope you join us.

A highlight from Special Encore The Canonization of St. Teresa of Calcutta Building a Kingdom of Love w/ Msgr. John Esseff
"Discerninghearts .com presents Building a Kingdom of Love, Reflections with Monsignor John Essif. Monsignor Essif is a priest of the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania. He has served as a retreat director and confessor to Saint Teresa of Calcutta. He continues to offer direction and retreats for the Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity. Monsignor Essif encountered Saint Padre Pio, who would become a spiritual father to him. He has lived in areas around the world, serving in the Pontifical Missions, a Catholic organization established by Pope Saint John Paul II, to bring the good news to the world, especially to the poor. He continues to serve as a retreat leader and director to bishops, priests and sisters, seminarians and other religious leaders. Building a Kingdom of Love, Reflections with Monsignor John Essif. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. What was this glorious pilgrimage like? I would say what brought us there, there were 16 of us who left to go there, and the ones who you would meet along the way, that each of them were loved by Mother Teresa. That's the way I would describe, each one of them had a personal experience of the enduring love that touched them. I certainly had to be there. It was like something that, as a pilgrim, I felt called to be at this celebration. And I felt God wanted me to be there, therefore he would provide. And he provided for me to get there to the vehicle of these 16 people that I went with. And it was just a very caring young priest who, Father Mike was our leader of the group, and I was kind of the senior citizen, I was the oldest member of the group. The streets of Rome, as you know, are really architectural hazards. Someone who doesn't see, I could easily fall anyplace and break a hip or whatever, but I was really cared for. And there was a young girl, a woman that I met, and she was in a wheelchair, and she kind of summed it up for me when she said, Mother Teresa touched me when I was 16. And she said she just came in the crowd and touched me, and she touched me on my head. And it was like an unforgettable touch from this woman who was such an instrument, just reminded me of Jesus going through the world, and everyone that he touched remembered that touch. And so it was with me. I experienced the love and being loved by her so that she was this instrument of love in the world. There were millions and millions who saw that by television or heard it by radio in so many parts of the world. So really, wouldn't you say that maybe a billion people were touched through this instrument of God's love, because she followed what God asked her to do, and in some way experienced being loved by God as the poorest of the poor, because that's what she considered herself, that he loved her and touched her with that love. And then she began to touch one by one by one. That was her way of looking at it. We arrived together as a group on September the 1st, and we went by van to Newark, New Jersey, where we all got on a plane, and we got to know each other's names, because not everybody, there were married people, there were priests, there were single people who were on that, just getting to know each other. And then we all had different parts on the plane going over, arrived and gathered together in a group, and there was a van to meet us, to take us to our hotel. We still stayed in a little hotel called Hotel De Petrus, which was about a 20 -minute subway ride from the Vatican. That evening, I went by subway to St. John Lateran, where I heard confessions, and it was so beautiful. I heard, because of my languages, I heard confessions in English, Spanish, Italian. And who comes along but walking right in front of me is Marty McDermott that I had met in Beirut. And he and I just kind of hooked together. He was there. And again, the love, it was there in Beirut that I met the sisters, it was there that I met Mother Teresa, so we just kind of laughed as two old men. He was an aging Jesuit that they kind of wanted to get out of Beirut to bring him home to their northeastern province in New York, but he stayed there, he remained there. I think he's from Hartford, Connecticut. And we just chatted while all of the sisters that we had known through the years come pouring out at the end of the celebration there, and I just saw Sister Joy and all the sisters that I had known through the years, Missionaries of Charity. And then we hopped on a subway and came home, and I got home maybe around midnight. That was our first day. And so it was a beautiful time. On the third day, we were there September the 3rd, and more confessions, and St. Mary Major was again a beautiful church, and confessions. And then the fourth day was a canonization. And Mother has always just loved Our Lady. On the cover of the celebrated Mass was Our Blessed Mother. And if you notice her hand always pointing, Mary is such a direct link to Jesus. Her whole life pointing, you say Mary, she says Jesus. And Mother then is on September the 5th. She was beatified by John Paul II, 2002. And I was there, and when her picture went up as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and John Paul, that's the day I consecrated myself to Our Lady. All her life Mother Teresa had said, you should consecrate yourself to Mary. Oh, Mother, I have the Sacred Heart. That's where she was pointing. She wanted me to be with the Sacred Heart. No, but the best way to do it is through her. Oh, no, thank you very much. But the Pope, he told us to us, no, no. So I resisted. But when I saw those two up there, the aging, elder John Paul II, such a powerful, powerful instrument of God. And this little less than five foot woman, such a powerful instrument. I thought, what do you need to follow that? So that's the day I consecrated myself to Mary. And here she is. They really captured her look. And it was on the second missalette that we had on the following day on September the 5th, which is her feast day. So on the 4th, we had the canonization mass. The incident that was most, I sat with a couple of sisters on the way home in the airport. And one of them said it was such a powerful experience, but I have to say I couldn't get by the heat. I just couldn't get by the heat. It was 98 degrees. It was hot and a beating, beating heat down on the whole place. All I could recall during the mass with that intense heat was the time when I was at the chapter meeting in Calcutta, where it was 100 degrees heat and 100 percent humidity. And it was so stifling. And Mother would not allow a fan. They were begging her, let us get a fan. No, we have to live like the poor. What is the authenticity of our sacrifice? If we could have a fan? No. And we need a microphone. We can't hear. No. But get one for Monseigneur. So I had a microphone for the presentations and I had a fan when I was giving my presentations. She turned it off for the whole community. And I'll never forget this nun who was at that celebration. With this intense heat, every time there was the slightest breeze, she just thanked God for the breeze. She was an American nun and she was communicating to me how we are not used to that Indian heat nor the humidity. And I noticed that at the mass, her massive canonization. But everyone had to wait for that slight breeze. And that I was so aware of that every once in a while, when you thought you were going to pass out, there was a breeze. Everyone was reminded, though, of just how poor we are and how lacking in control of the events of life. And that total dependence. So she gave us all a marvelous lesson. And anyone who had been there, if they were there, including the Pope, that intense heat was down on a million people who were there. And everyone came through that and endured it. So Mother Teresa was very active during that canonization. It streamlined it, so it made it very simple, which is really what I think she wanted. Don't have the focus on me. But as the mass itself, the focus was all on God. It was the glory and the praise and the honor of God. Thank you, Lord, for the slightest breeze. Thank you, Lord, for just being here. And I found myself thanking God. And I was there. The other thing I noticed in her gathering us, there was a multiracial, the whites were far outnumbered at this mass. Not only because of the Indian priests, the African priests, the Asian priests, the Koreans, the Chinese, the Vietnamese, South Africa, and all of the world was really... ...that we are just one family. And the main, I think, lesson that I learned is dependence on God and that we are all very, very poor and the poorest of the poor. The opening day, the day before we got there, the Missionaries of Charity had in the Olympic Stadium, which they were able to get, a thousand of the poorest of the poor from their houses in Rome that they served the poor. They invited them all to come and have a feast. And they actually had this huge feast and banquet for the poorest of the poor because this was what it was all about. If Mother was going to have the celebration, the first ones to have the feast was the poorest of the poor, and she invited them to the table. And all of them were invited to come to the celebration, so they all had tickets to the event. You could see different ones as they were coming were obviously the poorest of the poor, meeting all of us, the poorest of the poor who were coming. So the universality and multiracial was what I felt was very outstanding for me on the day. Sounds a lot like Pentecost. Yeah, and the language just didn't seem to, it was like both hearing confessions and the celebration itself. And of course we had the Latin and all of us joined in were able to participate with the Latin and the singing. And again that language, that unity of our worshipping and glorifying God in that mass. Some lady was wheeling us onto the plane when we were at the Newark Airport, and she was a young girl, a young black girl, and I said we were going to be going to Mother Teresa's canonization. Well she had never heard of Mother Teresa, she was 20 years old. Oh, she said, what are you going to have, a party? I said yeah, and what is the mass but a party that God wanted? So he gets this heavenly banquet together, and that's why I was so happy when you see all these priests going out and bringing the Eucharist to every single one that was there. That was the day celebration, and I think there was a big difference then with the celebration on the 5th. And again, we can't celebrate it, but it was much more intimate. Maybe there must have been, maybe 300 ,000 there. How do you get just intimate? So there was this smaller crowd, and the priests and the participation was still so joyous and so beautiful. The day there was a cloud coverage, so that the heat wasn't as intense, so it was cooler, it was more refreshing, it was more relaxed. And at the end, one of the priests stood up, the sisters came in. The greatest gift I always felt that Mother has given us is her community. And these sisters coming in from all over the world were certainly well represented there, and lines and lines of missionaries of charity coming in. There were also the brothers, and there were also the missionaries of charity fathers. And one of the fathers got up at the end and he said, Today is a day of thanksgiving, and we are just so filled with thankfulness that God has recognized our foundress as a saint, and that we are able to participate in this canonization. And we rejoice, and you can just see St. Teresa of Calcutta in heaven with all the poorest of the poor, and us, poorest of the poor, having experienced being touched by her. And we are now celebrating, because she has touched our lives. And she always said, Unless you have experienced the thirst God has for you as the poorest of the poor, you'll never be able to know the thirst he has for the poorest of the poor. So that having had that experience of that love that God has for me through her, that that tasting of that is an enduring bond that you experience, and it just endures in it, it lasts. The love of God is enduring. The love that Mother Teresa gave, that touch that tapped that girl on the head when she was 16, that love lasts. It's an everlasting love. It's tasting the divine love. And it's the thirst that God has for us as people, so that when we pass that on, and if we were a million there, and the millions and millions that saw it on television are able to receive it and to pass it on, it was a great joy in heaven, and a great celebration on earth, and it was time for a party. The possibility of someone coming into a crowd like that and throwing some bombs, it was like the furthest thought, I believe, that peace and love is contagious. It has a power that's overcoming hatred and violence, and the way to bring this about is through that divine love. This is the force and the power that I believe is really necessary in the world today. So it was a great experience. You know, it's really striking, Monsignor, that the endurance of those who came, those who had to endure suffering during the celebration, because I watched it all cozy on my couch at 3 in the morning, back here in Omaha with my puppy and my coffee, and that was really nice, but you could see how hot it was. You could just see how people were just baking under the sun, and yet that enduring that suffering is essentially a message of her life. For all weekend, the build -up was not just on EWTN and other Catholic outlets, but it was on secular news broadcasts, CNN, Fox, all of these different news outlets were covering this great gathering. And so as you're watching these people, literally suffering with joy through the mass, it was almost like a major witness. And there's something really unique when that happens, isn't there, Monsignor, that if you can endure it, if you can enter into it like she did, there's grace somehow, even for the participants. I know you're just a couple days out of this, but for you, I mean, can you describe that now? It intensifies your interior self. You become very aware that I don't know how much longer I'm going to be able, and that's the word, endure this, whatever that be, this stress, this heat, this cross, however you want to call it. Each one has to go in there because that's where you're drawn to, and that is the center of the inner self. And that's where your dependency comes, and that's where you experience the God on whom you have to depend. So what gives you the endurance is the dependence. It stays, and it remains, and it burns, and whatever it is, you cannot last through it, and it just keeps coming on in a way, just when you think, it's going to let up. No. And then it comes just at the right time, a kind of a breeze, where it comes from, and the refreshment. And then you're drawing something in from this power, and I would call it the spirit. The spirit is now bringing you into the inner rest that's going on, is only had by those who are willing to endure. I don't know how others would describe that, but that's how I was experiencing it. As you were speaking about that, that endurance, I think that's the suffering of love, isn't it? I mean, at its very, very heart. And I know that's one of the, you had spoken so poignantly that for many who heard your reflection prior to leaving, and you were seeking a particular grace, that entering into the Immaculate Heart of Mary, even more deeply into the Sacred Heart, and I don't want to put more words on it than what you were hoping for, because sometimes even the grace we think we're going for is smaller than the one that God wants to give us. So how would you describe your experience for those who have been eagerly waiting? Well, did it happen for them? Did you receive what you were hoping for? More, more than I ever had anticipated. That which I wanted, I received, but much more abundantly. There was more. It's so difficult to describe, because you have to use the same words. But the words don't carry the meaning that the inner self has that you want to convey. That life in the inner self, that enduring bond of love. Like, excuse me, you're supposed to look ragged and tired and beleaguered for an 88 -year -old man who, you know, has traveled around the world, and I have not seen you look so buoyant and glowing and energized. I mean, this is just, it's a joy to behold you. Yeah, yeah. And I feel that way. I feel my cup runneth over. You know, they use that expression, but it's just like brimming over, full and I. I just don't know how else to express it. So if you see it, that's wonderful. And if you hear it, that's wonderful. But I'm experiencing it. And so whatever I wanted out of this, I received with a hundredfold. You're like a beautiful monstrance right now that's sitting on top of an altar with a whole bunch of light shining. And I know you're just a vessel. You're just a monstrance. But what's making everybody, it's just breathtaking is how Christ is radiating out of you right now. What I was experiencing was that inner heart of Mary. And what's the inner heart of Mary? Completely empty. Completely empty. So that every single moment you can receive whatever that is that's coming. I think that's really what I'm experiencing. The emptiness of Mary's heart. So that she has none of her own cares, but those of everyone around her. You know, everyone was caring. I felt being cared for. But it was like the kind of being cared for so that I too could experience how to care for others. Well now you got me crying. Oh my gosh. Now I'm a big weepy mess. Well Monsignor, you know, I usually ask you if you have a final thought, but I just can't even believe that there could be a finality to this experience. What are you feeling right now in this moment? The thing that I'm really kind of filled with is Mary's spirit. It's always crying out. Magnificat. Magnificat. Have a beautiful, beautiful day.

If we didn't have it, it would be hard to believe it could be any worse. They're just letting people flow into our country. A country has to have borders. Some of the wall was up there and it would be laying on the ground rusted rotten steel, rusted rotten wood, and what the radical left crazy Democrats did. If there's a piece of wood laying down, they consider that a wall. I built because this is the game. They're a party of disinformation. In the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike. Welcome back to the ReliefFactor .com studio. I'm your guest host Carl Jackson sitting in with the great Mike Gallagher and Joe in Kentucky, Louisville. I'll be going to you in just a second here. If you want to call into the program 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. I just want to comment on that video, the last video that you saw on SalemNewsChannel .com with former President Donald Trump in that CNN town hall that he did with the lady that just got taken to school even though she tried to take him to school. That was so annoying. I could barely take that interview. Do you realize the Biden administration, a lot of that new material that we purchased, they've literally sold a lot of it off. They've sold it off. Even to try to rebuild and keep in mind when Trump says rebuild, a lot of the wall was being fortified. He didn't literally build hundreds of miles worth of wall, unfortunately. I wish he had the left and unfortunately some rhinos did everything they could to slow the border issue down. That's something that has to be started all over virtually again with the exception of the 40 plus miles that were added because the Biden administration literally are continuing to sell off some of the material. Some of the some of the material is just setting still not doing anything but they're selling it off. They did they did the same thing as a matter of fact with material from the Keystone XL pipeline. Just so you know how evil and disgusting and despicable the Biden administration and his leading up to this and this show. I'm going to show you how and thank you Tracy for reminding me the the woman was Robin from Hawaii from the state of Hawaii. I don't recall what island and and Derek you're right. I think more more people need to read the left so we understand what the left is doing so that we're not fighting so harshly against each other because I really do believe and I understand you want Trump to win. I got it. Fight for him like heck and you should and you should but there's a mistake I believe in sabotaging Adron DeSantis. I think there's a mistake in in in in saying nobody else should compete in the race and I'm not going to lie with you lie to you. I I don't want a lot of those people on the stage. The only people frankly that I care about and I know I'm going to offend some people out there are Trump DeSantis and Larry Elder and I'll tell you why and and I want to bring I want to bring I'll tie all this together. I promise you and Joe I promise you I'll get to Joe and Louisville, Kentucky. I'll be coming to you because you got an important call here that I that I want to take on but there's a reason why I I say Trump DeSantis and Larry Elder and I'm okay with those three. I'm okay with those three hashing it out. Now I do live in Realville you know Rush Limbaugh was the mayor of Realville. If I'm looking at the polls even though I I know that the polls are skewed I know that the polls are wrong I still know that Trump has a humongous lead over everyone. That is clear even in state polling that is very clear so it is more than likely that Trump will be the GOP nominee unless there's fewer people. I'm a selfish person. I like we the people. I realize that Trump if he gets in he gets four years and I'm sitting there thinking okay we need to win 2024, 2028, 2032, 2036, 2040. How do we do all this? How do how do we do all this? If if you think that it's going to be a four -year plan we're going to somehow turn America around in four years you're sadly mistaken. You're just you're you're sadly mistaken. The DOJ issue is the biggest issue in my opinion out there. The way that the DOJ the FBI how they've been utterly corrupted is the biggest issue but there's something I got to share with you. Unfortunately the DOJ and the FBI being corrupted just shows us that we're too late to the party so it is the biggest issue out there but unfortunately all of the other issues that preceded that in order to create a corrupt DOJ a corrupt FBI we're late to the party. I believe that Trump is better when it comes to that stuff right DOJ stuff and all that man he just I think he'll go in and just wreck shop. I love that. I think I think Trump is better instinctively with foreign policy. He's just honestly he changed my views on some foreign policy stuff and that I absolutely love and adore adore him for. I love his sheer tenacity force of will but I'll be straight with you when it comes to the stuff leading up to DOJ and Ron DeSantis is better and I don't care if you like that or not he's got an instinct for that. You don't have to you can whine like little girls on the left you can lie about it you can deny it you can do what some conservative columnists and and and influencers have been done uh doing that all of a sudden DeSantis is the worst but no I'm sorry he's our second best guy and I don't think it's even close and I think you're playing a seriously dumb game if you try to sabotage them. I think you're an idiot. I think you're a fake MAGA person and I don't think you're out for the country. I think you're out for yourself if you're trying to sabotage our second best guy. I just opinion for the betterment of America. You're an idiot. I want to make it completely and emphatically clear because this is not a one election game. We've come to the party way too late. Ron DeSantis' instincts on cultural Marxism and what led up to the DOJ corruption I'm sorry he's been better than Trump on that. When it comes to the issue of COVID I'm sorry I see all of the naysayers oh well Ron DeSantis is lying he did this he did these are the the whiners these these are the guys in the MAGA movement that need testosterone uh oh Ron DeSantis he's lying about you know he was he he was what are they saying oh he he locked down Florida and guys I live in Florida yes he followed orders just like everybody else but you had what's what's her name Kristi uh and I'm missing someone the lady in Iowa that were very strong on COVID but once DeSantis backed out of COVID he was better than anybody else by far by far it wasn't even close it showed me that he was instinctually getting stuff and he was strong enough to say whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa wait a minute here's what's going on now and he wasn't falling to the pressure so that's why I want to see Trump on stage because as much as I love Trump and we've got a video here saying don't comply with COVID well I'm sorry I love Trump I love Trump but I'm we the people first I want Trump to tell me what he learned so that he does about COVID uh and and the deep state so he never gets duped again when he's in office that's what I want to know I deserve that as a voter you may not want that that's up to you but I'm a we the people person I want that because you know what I don't have the resources to fight against the deep state I don't have them if they lock me up I'm gone away forever you're never going to hear me again so I'm pretty selfish I want to stay out of prison I don't want to be the proud boys guy that I'm gonna that I'm going to talk about uh later Larry Elder the reason why I want him is simple in my opinion Larry Elder is a better communicator than DeSantis he's a better communicator uh than than Trump and I think he can communicate those ideas better than them and even to minority voters I think he can communicate our ideas better to minority voters than DeSantis and Trump can so I figure let them fight it out I think Trump is going to win but let them fight it out because you know why with those three I think we the people win and the left is an isolated on Donald Trump where they can just aim all right so take everybody out of the race let let's take everybody out of the race and let's just let the DOJ the FBI the the mainstream media big tech every look at everything that has been unleashed on Trump now let's get everybody out of the way so they can just completely focus on him you know what Ron DeSantis is do you know what Larry Elder and I pray to God Larry Elder gets on the stage larryelder .com do you know what they are they are an insurance policy I'm sorry I love Tim Scott I love Tim Scott I think Larry Elder is a better candidate than Tim Scott so I hope to God that he gets on the stage all right because I want to hear them debate but they're an insurance policy you know why the left is scared to get rid of Biden those that are Kamala Harris I had somebody messaged me yesterday uh Carl I love you on the show but I disagree with you on this part the impeachment thing because Kamala Harris the left has no problem throwing black people under the bus even a black woman they will throw her under the bus quick fast and in a hurry she's an insurance policy for Biden you know who's an insurance policy because I read them all the time I'm just telling you the truth you don't have to believe it you don't have to agree with it I don't necessarily agree with it but when I read the left when I read the radical left the person who they fear the most is DeSantis whether you like it or not doesn't mean that it's true that is their perception because they believe that DeSantis is Trump not charismatic but will get crap done when he came in the office that's true I don't believe

to be some cognitive test and perhaps there does need to be an age limit at some point uh but I'm wishy -washy on that I'll admit I'm not a term limit guy I know a lot of people want term limits listen I just think evil people do evil things they'll just figure out how to do evil things even more quickly I think we need to leave a move a lot of these people out of Washington D .C.

That premieres every Monday on the Salem News Channel.

To begin this morning, we're going to talk about a 12 -year -old Colorado student, who on Monday was kicked out of class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. For those who don't know what that is, the Gadsden flag patch, it is the don't tread on me flag that sometimes you see flying around the United States. According to the school district, which kicked this child out of class, that Gadsden flag is only flown in Trump 2020 flag flying white supremacist neighborhoods, which is obviously a lie, and not to mention insulting. This story, I think, provides a pretty apt synopsis of the state of American education for two reasons. First, the teacher who kicked this boy out of class falsely said that the Gadsden patch had, quote, origins with slavery. That is not true. This patch was actually made in the 1770s during the American Revolution, and the slogan don't tread on me was intended to be a message to the British that the American colonists who were rebelling against their rule were no longer going to put up with the British treading on them. That is the first thing that reveals the state of American education because it is very common nowadays for the content in schools to be taught incorrectly. Then the second reason why it says kind of everything you need to know about the state of our country's school system is that in addition to teaching the wrong content, students are being politically persecuted. There was another story in Massachusetts just about three or four months ago where a young 12 -year -old boy, Liam Morrison, was also sent home from school because he dared to wear a t -shirt that said there are only two genders. This is an ever -growing phenomenon in our country, but let's go here to this article I'm reading from American Greatness. On Monday, so two days ago, very recent, a Colorado Springs charter school removed a middle school student from class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack, alleging falsely that the patch had origins with slavery. A video circulating on X features a Vanguard school administrator explaining to 12 -year -old Jaden and his mother why the boy was pulled from class. The confrontation has gone viral, and due to negative publicity, this is great news, the boy was allowed to have the patch in place when he returned to school on Tuesday. That is totally the right strategy. What happened is that Jaden and his mother were so outraged by Jaden being sent home from school that they went public with this clip. They were on Sean Hannity on Fox News. I believe that they also spoke with Tucker Carlson, or at the very least, Tucker Carlson covered this story. That is the right approach. When something insane happens, whether it's in your child's school or in your workplace, you have to go public with it. That is the only way that we are going to expose the rot of wokeism and try to get it unraveled. This past Monday, in addition to being the day that 12 -year -old Jaden was sent home from school, also marked the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous I Have a Dream speech. In addition to Martin Luther King's great activism, nonviolent activism, the thing that ended the racist Jim Crow laws in the South was the fact that Americans were seeing the discrimination against black people on their televisions. The start of cable TV, or at least the popularity of cable TV in the 50s and 60s in contributing to the civil rights movement cannot be underestimated. It is because people started taking video of black people in the South being hosed down by police officers, having dogs unleashed on them. And in the court of public opinion, the Jim Crow laws and other racist measures that were present in the South no longer became acceptable because people were seeing with their own eyes how disgusting it was. That is what we need to do now in this arguably new civil rights era in our country. We need to go public, show video, send audio of a teacher berating a student. So I just thought that was interesting that on the same day that this child was sent home was the same day that Martin Luther King delivered that speech. Similar lessons can be gleaned from both of those experiences. Continuing from American greatness, this is a quote from the school administrator. The reason that we do not want the flag, the reason that we do not want the flag displayed is due to its origins with slavery and the slave trade. The Gadsden flag, the surprised mother responded to which the administrator replied the don't tread on me flag. The mother asked what would happen if Jayden removed the patch and the staffer answered flatly the bag can't go back if it's got the patch on it because we can't have that in and around other kids. They're talking about this patch like it has cooties, like if you get within five feet of it, you are going to get a highly contagious deadly flu. We can't have this around other children. Lest they get infected with the imaginary bigotry of the Gadsden flag patch, the mother shot back. Yeah, it has nothing to do with slavery, I love this. The mother is teaching the teacher. That's like the Revolutionary War patch that was displayed when we were fighting the British. Thank you Jayden's mother for teaching basic elementary history to an elementary school teacher. The administrator responded, I am here to enforce the policy that was provided by the district. This is such cowardice. It's not me who's doing this, even though I'm the one who sent the child home. It's a policy. I'm just hiding behind the policy. The mother and son pointed out that other Vanguard kids, Vanguard is the school in Colorado, are allowed to have other various patches on their backpacks. That's exactly right. I bet that there are students at that school who have come in with Black Lives Matter patches or pride patches or even t -shirts with those symbols. Why is that okay? Arguably Black Lives Matter, not just arguably, I mean it's pretty evident, Black Lives Matter is far more offensive of a flag than the Gadsden flag. Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization which advocated for uprooting the Western prescribed notions of the nuclear family. The Black Lives Matter organization has accumulated billions and billions and billions of dollars that has gone absolutely nowhere to places that would actually help black people. They purported to raise this money for bail funds and for scholarships and for public school funding. What we have found out is that it has actually gone into the pockets of the founders so that they could buy $6 million mansions here in Los Angeles. Those billions of dollars were also used to, actually they were used for bail funds, but they were used to bail out violent rioters who set buildings aflame. Those riots in 2020 killed 25 people, many of whom were black. But the Black Lives Matter flag is okay. I bet you there would be no issue, but the Gadsden flag, oh yes, that is bigotry. How about the pride flag? You know, pride no longer represents tolerance of those with different sexual identification. It a represents movement that seeks to condone the genital mutilation of young children in the name of so -called gender affirming care. Is that offensive? Would that flag be allowed in schools? I bet you it would. 1 -8 Prager, 776 -1877 -243 -777 -6. Back in a moment. Precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

Triple G has notified me that we actually have a clip of this recording of the administrator telling 12 -year -old Jaden, the Colorado student, that he could not wear the Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. I just want to play a minute of the video for you so that you can hear this. And for those of you who are watching the show on the Salem News Channel, you will see that this boy is so polite. He's clean cut. He has a nice shirt on and he's sitting there, you know, with his hands clasped together and he's just nodding and taking it in, incredibly dignified and polite. He didn't say anything like, come on, this is ridiculous. What the heck is going on here? He handled that with such class. His mother should be proud. Let's hear a minute of this clip. Thank you. Do they know what the Gadsden flag is? It's a historical flag. So there, the reason that they do not want the flag, the reason we do not want the flag is due to its origins with slavery and slave trade. That is what was, that's the reason behind the Gadsden flag. The don't tread on me, which is the Gadsden flag. Okay, so he, what's going to happen if he doesn't take it all? He, I mean, he is able to go, I was actually just telling him, like, I was upset that he was missing so much school. I'm like, ah! So I asked him, can he just take his stuff out of his bag and go back to class? Like, I just want him to go back to class. The bag can't go back. It's got a patch on it, because we can't have that in and around other kids. So that's what I was trying, and then he said you were close, so I was like, oh, okay. It's amazing that this administrator is saying, you know, I hate that he's missing school. He's missing school because of you, my friend, or not my friend, my enemy. All right, reading continuing from American Greatness, the head of the school told Jaden's mother that the patch was, quote, disruptive to the classroom environment, and that the boy was welcome to return to class on Tuesday, but only if he removed the patch, okay? Because of its creator's history and because it is commonly flown alongside Trump 2020 flags, the Confederate battle flag, and other white supremacist flags, some may now see the Don't Tread On Me flag as a symbol of intolerance and hate or even racism. Oh, gosh. We could spend the entire three hours on that quote. Okay, so many lies in that one sentence. But they're saying that Trump 2020 flags are white supremacist flags. How is that not political persecution? So half this country are white supremacists, really? And then I love this line here. Some may see it as a symbol of intolerance, hate, or even racism. Welcome to the tyranny of the minority. If one person is made to feel uncomfortable by that flag, the entire school has to go along with that person's preferences. This child has to be sent home. As the administrator said, he loses out on learning because this one person may, in a hypothetical world, be uncomfortable. So this is interesting because let's look at these four adjectives that were used to describe this patch, disruptive, intolerant, hateful, and racist. We live in a world where there is such a profound assault on truth. And what comes alongside that assault on truth is an assault on the objective meaning of words, because that's basically another way of saying the truth, that words hold a objective, truthful meaning. You know, when people say, well, what's the harm of calling a man a woman or a woman a man? What's the harm of saying words are violent? This is the harm, because when words lose their objective meaning, the rules and the standards that are associated with those words also lose their objective meaning, and then all havoc breaks loose. There is this standard in American public education. It was established in a Supreme Court case in 1969. The case is called Tinker versus Des Moines, Iowa School District. And it dealt with the fact that students came to class wearing Vietnam War or anti -Vietnam War wristbands, and they were asked to remove those wristbands. And this case went all the way up to the Supreme Court, and the court established what's called the Tinker standard of regulating speech in schools, because they had to balance the fact that sometimes it is necessary and even good to regulate speech in schools for disciplinary reasons, but also respecting the fact that students have First Amendment rights. So they established this standard, which essentially says that students have a right to express political speech, wear shirts, wear backpack stickers, wear wristbands. As long as that speech is not disruptive to the classroom and does not infringe on the rights of other students to learn. So here we see that this school district in Colorado is saying that Jaden's backpack patch is disruptive. And so if we are now calling a backpack patch disruptive, then it means that they can lawfully tell Jaden to go home and get rid of it, because the Tinker standard says that they have a right to censor speech that is disruptive. Once the objective meaning of words change, then that paves the way for the objective meaning of rules and standards associated with those rules to change. Another story that we will cover in this hour is this Spanish soccer league craziness where the head, I believe it was, of the Spanish soccer league went up and kissed one of the female players after the Spanish female soccer team won the World Cup. This kiss, which by the way I do not condone, you shouldn't kiss someone if it is unwanted or without their consent, but this kiss is now being called sexual assault. And this man who planted the unwanted kiss on the female soccer player is under criminal investigation for sexual assault, which in Spain, as in the United States, carries prison time as a potential punishment. Another perfect example of the way that if we change words, then we change the laws associated with those words. Because now if a kiss is called sexual assault, then you can be prosecuted or brought to trial for alleged sexual assault if you kiss someone. This is very scary. That is why conservatives make such a fuss when words are used improperly, because it leads to a slippery slope. And by the way, this is going to affect all of us. There are going to be many people, we're already seeing it happen, who are going to be fired from their jobs or sent home from school for supposedly being disruptive or racist when they're not. We have calls. We'll take them in the next segment. 1 -8 Prager 776 -1877 -243 -7776. I'm eager to hear your reactions. Back in a moment.

We are discussing the fact that this 12 -year -old boy in Colorado was sent home from school on Monday for wearing a Don't Tread On Me patch on his backpack. The school said that he had to remove it. In order to return to school, he and his mother went public with a recording of the administrator admonishing him. And the public outrage over this incident led to the school allowing Jaden to come back with the patch on his backpack. I should also note that the school announced that they would be canceling Parents Night due to quote, unforeseen circumstances. Clearly, they do not want to face some questions about this incident. Let's go to Steve in Chicago, Illinois. Hi, Steve. Thanks for calling in. Yeah, Julie, thanks a lot. So, here's where I'm going to part company with you, okay? Whatever happened at School of Colorado sounds ridiculous, okay? But you beat it like a dead horse a thousand times to make it sound as if this is commonplace. You talk about transgender issues, and Dennis Prager does it nonstop. And what you do, and the way to deceive people, okay, which is what I think you and Dennis do, is to omit from your discussions and your narrative other information that would make what you're saying completely false, okay? What is that information that we are omitting? Well, I'll tell you. I'll tell you. You guys beat this transgender drum like they are going to take over the world and destroy civilization. The fact is - When have we ever said those words? That they're going to take over the world and destroy civilization? I listen to Dennis all the time. It's incessant. And the fact is, is there are very few transgender people relative to the population, okay? That's true. Most of us will never meet a transgender person. The few people who are transgender are afflicted with a horrible psychiatric illness, okay? They deserve empathy. No one is forcing them to undergo any transgender hormonal treatment. I'm going to pause you there, Steve. I don't mean to cut you off, but just for the sake of time, I'm going to pause you and I'd like to continue a discussion, but I have to cut in. You are right, Steve, that there is a relatively low number of transgender individuals relative to the population, which is why I ask the question, why is teaching that gender is non -binary and fluid becoming so mainstream if this is so rare? And I encourage you, Steve, and anyone listening who may agree with his disagreement of Dennis' position and my position, I encourage you to read the California Department of Education codes, the Arizona Department of Education codes, New Jersey, Michigan. Many states, blue states around the country, in these codes have things that say that you should teach kids that gender is non -binary. In New Jersey, they say that you should not refer to children using gendered pronouns. Here in Los Angeles, the LAUSD, which has about 450 schools under its jurisdiction, has monthly Rainbow Club meetings where students as young as four years old are subjected to drag queen story hour. This is not a fringe thing. This is very mainstream, and they are also taught these radical gender codes. I agree that people who are experiencing gender dysphoria deserve empathy. That is why I, and I feel comfortable speaking for Dennis, that is why Dennis and I are so disgusted. And that is the word disgusted by this movement, which is saying, legitimizing the fact that it is normal to not feel your gender. These individuals deserve empathy, they deserve therapy, but what they do not deserve is being subjected to doctors and students who are saying, yeah, you're 13 years old or you're 15 years old and you don't feel like your gender, here are some puberty blockers, and by the way, you should have your breasts cut off. This is happening at the Duke University Medical School, Medical Hospital, excuse me, Boston Children's Hospital. This is happening all over the country. I'd like to give Steve an opportunity to respond. We may have to go into the next segment, Steve. We don't have much time. OK. Yeah. What you're saying about people having their breasts, women having their breasts cut off and hormonal blockers, again, it's a misleading narrative you're giving. OK. No, no, no female is going to breast cut off without her consent, without substantial psychiatric involvement. OK. It is not substantial psychiatric involvement. That is not true. You know what? You know what? I've studied this issue. It is true. As have I. As have I. It is very common for these kids. OK, I'm sorry. We're going to have to continue into the next segment. Steve, stay on. We'll pick it up. Back in a moment.

Kevin McCullough on hurricane watch duty for you this morning. Hurricane Idalia making its way across the Florida Panhandle. Actually, it hit much further north on the western coast than what I had realized. I thought it was coming in a little bit further south. It kind of came right into the armpit of where the top and the bottom panhandles reach. And as it's moving up into across the area, it's almost splitting the goal posts evenly between Jacksonville and Panama City. And that means that Georgia is next in its wake. And then it's going to be headed up towards Charleston and Wilmington before it eventually turns out. Maybe even regaining some strength and heading out to the Bermuda area before it finally dissipates. So there's a lot of mileage still left in this storm, and we are keeping our eye on it for you. If you would like to help the people of Florida and Georgia recover from this, the Salvation Army will be doing great work. I know that Mike Gallagher is a big believer in the Salvation Army, as am I. So I would be glad to recommend them to you this morning.

"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 Guest Host Kevin McCullough On Our Fight To Save America From Destruction
"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. This Music. is your source for breaking news. And what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. The thing about Karen Bass, just a couple of years ago, she was talking about how great it is that Los Angeles is a sanctuary city. So this continues to be the political own goal of the decade. Well, Biden said COVID shots are coming back, like it or not. People want someone they know can already do the job. President Trump has done the job. We have the best economy of my lifetime. Everyone was doing better. The border was secure. And now, in the ReliefFactor .com studios, sitting in for Mike today, here's Kevin McCulloch. It is an honor to be back for my good friend, Mike Gallagher, a colleague here at the Salem Radio Network, and also someone who cares very much about what is happening to our country. Kevin McCulloch is my name. You can find me on the Salem News Channel and many of the same radio stations on Saturday nights at 9 o 'clock Eastern with that Kevin show. If you're local in the New York area, you can listen to me on AM 570 each weekday afternoon at 3 o 'clock, AM 970 the answer each weeknight at 7. And we have a lot of fun. My handle across all social media at that Kevin show. Please be in touch with me. I love to interact on the top stories of the day. We've got a lot to get to this morning. Yesterday, one of the judges in the federal trials that is the former president is going to face in upcoming months set the trial date for March 4th. This is in the special case against President Trump that Jack Smith is bringing the U .S. District Judge for the District Tanya Chutkin. Remember that name? It will live in infamy. She's rejected a proposal by the Trump defense team that the trial began in April of twenty twenty six long after the election. She instead set the date far closer to the one proposed by Smith and the government who wanted it on January 2nd. And if you happen to be a criminal attorney, please dial me eight hundred six five five Mike eight hundred six five five six four five three. I'd love to have some validation on this, but one of the one of the broadcasts I do here in New York for AM 970 the answer focuses on litigative issues every Thursday night. And we just talk legal stuff. I'm not a lawyer. I'm fascinated by the law. I think that lawyers that that proves a faithful service to their clients and to the government are are valuable people in our society. But I think it's interesting to see this chess match being played to the public in a way as though lawyers wouldn't know what was really going on here. So let me kind of break it down for you. You had the indictment and the the perp walk and the cuffing and the fingerprinting and all the stuff that they wanted to do to try to embarrass forty five. They had their moment in the in the sun to do that. And then they come back and they say, oh, we're we're going to go to trial quickly. We're going to put you on trial on the second of January. And Jack Smith said, Judge, you've got to put them on trial on the second of January. And the Trump team said, no, we're going to ask for twenty twenty six. And the judge comes back and says, no, no, no, no, we can't give you that much time to prepare. We're going to make sure that you're ready for trial by March the fourth. Now, of all the dates and all the calendars in all the world, March 4th is the day that she just happened to land on. I'm just I'm just looking at this calendar and I'm just seeing of all the choices and options that I have here. And you know what? I'm going to go with March the fourth for no reason whatsoever. Except that March 5th happens to be Super Tuesday. And there's however many states, twelve, fifteen, sixteen states in it. I forget the number. It's one of the most important days of the election calendar. This judge, Tonya Chutkin and and the prosecutor in the in the in the Georgia case are both embarrassing themselves. Fannie Willis and Tonya Chutkin are both embarrassing themselves because their behavior begets kindergartners on day one of preschool. Like it's they're not even in the in the class yet. And they're already like goofing around. Here's what happens between now and March 4th of next year. The Trump team will do a number of things in all of these cases, but they're going to they're going to be filing mainly, especially in the in the state cases for a couple of things. They're going to want those cases moved out of the Georgia state realm and they're going to want to put them into the federal realm because the federal system will be one that's easier to to manage and to and to kind of go through. But beyond that, there are a boatload of motions that will be being entered into the record between now and then that they are going to do everything from filing a motion to dismiss to filing an extension for discovery. And let me just let me just tell you on this on this alleged interference in the 2020 federal case that Jack Smith is doing out of D .C. It's my understanding that there are more than 12 million documents. That will be entered into the evidence, and this Tonya Chutkin joke, this this judge, this this joke of a judge laughed yesterday when told by the Trump team that for proper discovery to be allowed, there's no human way that they could sit and read 12 million pages between now and March 4th. And she just kind of giggled like, ha ha ha. Well, you've already you already know a bunch of the stuff that's in there. Ha ha ha. Friends. We talked about this yesterday. The left is trying to systematically dismantle America and they're starting to let the evil be seen. Right. That was my theme yesterday on the show. We talked about it for three hours. This is another example of that. There's there's this kind of open knowledge that this judge is dismissing. The normal procedures that what would be accustomed to any other criminal defendant, they're not going to allow President Trump. Why aren't they going to give him the same rights and the same protections that they would give a serial killer or a gang banger or anyone else? They're going to have to. And if the judge continues this kind of embarrassing behavior, chuckling at the people that are involved, chuckling at the requests that are made. She's there's a there's a there's a circuit court that oversees this court. And those judges have authoritative roles that they play over the over the sitting judge. That's that's in the court. That is Tonya Chuck him. And if they don't want to be embarrassed, if they don't want to have their circuit embarrassed, they will advise their underling to comport herself differently. But I just find it amazing that we're supposed to buy all of this. This is this is the great lie. They sit here and they pull this stuff and they and they set these unrealistic dates. And by the way, I'm going on the record. They would not have made a January 2nd start date. They're not going to make a March 4th start date. You had it is law. His he has a right to an informed defense. He has he has a right to have his defense know every piece of evidence that's going to be introduced as it's introduced before it's introduced. If the if the prosecution has had twelve point eight million documents in their possession and the defense is just receiving and being made aware of what they're going to introduce. They have to have time legally to not only understand what every document says, but they have to process it and comprehend the implication of what that document has to do with within the case. And then they have to have the right to prepare proper defense of those facts. This isn't a kangaroo court. We're not in a kangaroo nation. There are still laws. And I know these Obama judicial appointees and the Biden administration and the Justice Department all think it's hilarious. What's going to be hilarious is when they get their teeth slapped back at them by their their their upper judges and maybe eventually the Supreme Court, because they're such lunatics with how they're proceeding at current pace. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Take your calls right now. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Do you think that Trump will be in court on March 4th, the day before Super Tuesday next year? By the way, some of his fellow Republicans think that he will be. Chris Christie, the shameful, shameful behavior of Chris Christie in recent days coming right back. It's the Mike Gallagher show. Don't go away. Left leaning activists are attacking Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Read The People's Justice Clarence Thomas and the constitutional stories that define him on sale now from Regnery Publishing. You know.

A highlight from BCB123_JAMES LAVISH: Wheres The Recession?
"It is very difficult to time when the recession will hit. I still believe we're going to have one. The Fed keeps talking about unemployment is still super high. When you pull the numbers apart, they're not as great as they look, you know, with people having their second jobs and working part time rather than full time, it's a little bit messy. But what's more important about the unemployment numbers, it never jumps until we actually hit the recession. Every single time it just goes vertical. Everything that the Fed is looking at is on a lag basis. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where Average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance and we talk shit. We are pumped to bring you the latest macro thoughts from one of the best in the business, Mr. James Lavish. James has a weekly newsletter called The Informationist. It's one of our few go -to newsletters. He does a stellar job of keeping it understandable while delivering haymakers of information. We were fortunate enough to grab him right as BTC rolls over from its months of slumber to aggressively shit the bed. We spoke to him just days before this happened, but his advice has already proven to be useful. It is wise to keep a bit of fiat on hand for just such occasions to deploy during these downturns. It's also a good time to remind everyone that this is why we DCA. It's much less painful when you know you are buying on a daily or weekly basis. The pain may not be over yet, but use the opportunity to stack life changing sats. Once those sats are in your possession, get them off any and all exchanges and get them in cold storage as soon as possible. We recommend the Cold Card Mark 4 as our cold storage solution. The Cold Card is purpose -built to protect your Bitcoin. Because it has such a focused mission, there is a miniscule surface area for attack. CoinCut has you covered. From seed plates to block clocks to cold cards, get 5 % off the Cold Card Mark 4 with our code BCB. Before we kick this thing off, just a reminder that you can get 10 % off Bitcoin Amsterdam tickets and Bitcoin 2024 in Nashville tickets with our code BCB. That's 10 % off either event with code BCB. James, you literally saved BCB this week. We really appreciate it. We like to joke about getting guests off Twitter like fishing for a big game fish. We had a tuna on the line this week and we had him reeled up to the boat, Dan was reaching in with the net and just as we were about to pull him into the boat to filet him, he snapped the line and back into the deep blue he went. You were able to jump on board and be on in like a day or two and thank you so much for joining us. Of course. I'm happy to be here. I love being out with you guys and always like talking to you both. Of course, that's why they call it fishing and not catching, right? Exactly. We need a shotgun. To apply pressure to you as well, James, when you do come out of the bullpen as you have just done, we expect 98 to a hundred straight up the middle strikes every fucking time. So this better be firing fastballs. Also, the guest for this week originally was maybe or maybe not going to be macro Alf. So we were expecting an Italian, which means we would all, we would also ask that when you use certain words, you do it with an Italian accent, like Gigantic. And when we get into talking about the Fed and you say balance sheet, the irony about this week though, is that I, this may be a bold statement, but I would put you and Alfonzo's sub stacks. I'm going to add Jesse Myers. I'm going to say that those are the three for me, most read sub stacks for macro. Yeah, I'm flattered. Thank you. I love that. If you're reading the informationist by lavish and the macro compass by macro Alf, you're going to, you're going to have the equipment to stay on top of what's going on, but it's a labor of love. I'm sure. I mean, for you to distill some of these themes down into, I don't know what your word counts are, but they're really short. I'm assuming it takes a pretty big chunk of time and effort. Is it just come out naturally you've done this so long? No, it's well, you know, most of the time I know I wake up on a Saturday morning, I know kind of what I'm going to write about. And so I, you know, during season I'll throw on premier league or NCAA football and just have that on the background and just start hammering away. I do research here and there to make sure that I've got the right numbers and make sure that everything matches up and keep it current. Yeah. So I like using current topics that are interesting people should know about. And that helps you, even if it's not explicitly helping you in your portfolio, it can help shape how you're looking at it. But yeah, it does take a little bit of while. It's like a four or five hour process, but I love it. It's apparent too, that you have, you know, you have the current set Geist in mind, like usually you have a Twitter, like a tweet from somebody that's on the topic that you're going to cover, which I just think it's a cool feature to have at the top to like, this is the reason we're covering this today. It's always good. And it's so easy to understand. That's the greatest thing about it. I mean, it's obviously very signal packed, but it's just, you're not using financial terms that people aren't going to understand. It's, it's distilled down to the way we understand things, just normal blue collar people. So if you're looking for a sub stack, that's the one headed fireman approved, by the way, I'm locked and loaded. My wife just snuck down here and handed me homemade cold brew and a frosty mug. So I couldn't be more strapped in to send it. Should we start here, Josh? Where do you want to, I mean, we got to start macro, right? We have to, we have to leverage lavish to his extreme here. One of the things that I mean, I think everyone's been wondering, which is with these market rates rising the way they have in the last year to year and a half, everyone kind of expects markets. They have shit the bed. We haven't really seen that. And I'm guessing I'm wondering my basic initial question is what are the reasons for that? one We have of the things that we usually like people, you have to use the equity when they're valuing equities using discounted cashflow analysis, at least to some degree. And that should mean that interest rates rise, you should have a higher free rate of return. So it should, in theory, equity rates should, should go down at that point. I mean, there's obviously tons of other factors to consider, but that's just one initial thought. Yeah. You can see multiples are there at their highs, right? Multiples are extended. And so that just means for your listeners, you attach a multiple to a stock, to a public stock, and it's trading at 15 or 17 or 18 times earnings, or you talk about how many the multiple on sales or an EBITDA multiple and earnings before interest tax, the depreciation and amortization. So you can attach those multiple and they've been expanding for sure. But really what's happened and the crux of it is that there's still a lot of risk capital out there hasn't been sucked out of the system. So as interest rates rose and as we've all expected, they would have an impact, a negative impact to a number of institutions, especially some of these financial institutions that were not properly hedged. And we saw this happen back in the spring with Silicon Valley. And so what happened there is they were exposed to interest rate risk. They owned long -term treasuries as reserves against the deposits. But the problem is that they didn't hedge out the interest rate sensitivity. So as interest rates rose, they lost money on those bonds on their books. Now they can hold those to maturity and still get all that capital back. But as people started to get wind of the fact that, well, these guys are undercapitalized. It's a problem. They don't have enough reserves. Then they realize, well, I want to get my money out before Joe goes get it or Dan gets his or Josh gets his. I want to get my money out first. And so as they were doing that, we saw what could happen with this rise of interest rates. So it was a negative impact. You would have thought that you'd have a couple of banks, like two, three, four, five banks and then collapse money gets sucked out of the system. And it would impact the risk assets negatively like stocks and that kind of stuff. But the problem is the Fed and the treasury came right in. They swooped right in and said, no, no, no, no, no. We're going to save you. They came up with this BTFP policy and these banks were able to just borrow where they shouldn't have been able to. Typically, banks will borrow in a discount window from each other. And if they're a high risk, then another bank won't lend to them or the Fed discount window. And the Fed will have certain criteria they have to meet. If they couldn't even meet those, they opened up this new facility, the bank term funding program. And so they're able to borrow and that injected liquidity into the, it allowed the liquidity to stay there and injected liquidity held that market stable.
A highlight from Ep360: Get Rid Of Awkward Episodes With These Energy Level Tips
"For most of the people that would listen to this podcast, they're going to be people with normal, good energy level. They're going to be optimistic and excited about life. And you've got to be careful and cautious of the energy level that you come to town with, come to the podcast with. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster? It is your host, Adam A. Adams. And today we've got something good that we want to share with you that is going to help you. And it is about your energy level. I've got a brand new podcast client. They've been a client for more than two months, and their podcast is about to launch. When you launch a podcast with us, by the way, it takes time. And I need to share that with you now. And then I'll get into the energy level that I was going to talk about with this one podcasting client in mind. And here's the thing is the energy level that you come to your podcast with, I don't know if you remember recent episode called The Thermostat and the Thermometer, where you can either read the temperature or you can dictate the temperature. In this case, you want to dictate the temperature. So you're, again, being the thermostat, the energy level. And let me say that side note thing real quick to get it out of my head so I can move on is it takes a little bit of time when you go ready, fire aim, and you just launch a shitty podcast and you don't give a crap who listens to it. That's what's going to happen. You don't know if you're going to get any listeners and you're just busting it out there, throwing it out without a care, without making sure that all of the things are in place. That's what most people do. 90 % of podcasters really just go ready, fire aim. Somehow, some way somebody learned ready, fire aim, and then they started everybody keeps repeating it and taking completely out of context. Ready, fire aim doesn't mean do something badly. It means start taking action on a thing. It doesn't mean get things going and recorded and published that are shit. It's not asking you to please have bad quality because that's better than having good quality because you did something. No, no, no, no, no. Ready, fire aim is just about taking action, massive action. It doesn't mean to publish bad stuff. It means to take the time to understand, to start working on it, to start learning now, to start connecting with the team that's going to help you now. This is ready, fire aim in its real raw old thing as I understand it. It is for you to take the action, but it doesn't mean to make it crap. It's not what it's saying. So anyway, going to the energy level. Oh man, I am all over the place today. So what am I saying is if you want to start a podcast that is bad, you can just do whatever you want. You don't have to listen to this podcast. You don't have to hire a company to support you. You can just put out the bad stuff automatically and you'll have the podcast and maybe you'll be your only listener. It'll be a diary or a journal. It won't be a real podcast because you got to go ready, aim, fire. You got to spend some time getting behind it. And that's all I meant is some people are surprised that it of podcast another company where they could launch it in a weekend. You're going to come into this two day seminar. You're going to come in on Saturday, not at all knowing what you want to do. And on Sunday, your podcast is published. There's not enough time. That is a recipe for crap. That is a recipe for bad stuff. So something that you don't want to do. You want to spend some time and effort to make it good. So I'll say that now. That's why I said this is a brand new client and they're just starting to launch, finally launching. And it's been a couple of months. They've been working with us. They've been recording episodes. We've been editing them. We've been cutting out on Ums and Us. We've been making sure that we know who the avatar is. We did a really good job with the artwork and we started recording episodes and now it's time to launch. And now it's getting ready to time to launch as I'm listening to some of the first episodes. This is what happened. The music that he picked was so energetic. It had such a high energy level. And not only that, but the voiceover artists. So his music is original theme music. When you launch with my company, we hire real composers to create original theme music. So we did that. And it takes time to things right. And we hired a voiceover artist to record with that music to record the introduction, the 20ish seconds, 15 second intro that the podcast begins with. We chose female voiceover artists between the client and me going back and forth. We decided that even though he's a guy, he should have a female voiceover artist. So here's the thing. The music is exciting. The voiceover artist is perfect. She has an energy level above average. She's inviting. She's warm. She's friendly. She's even a little flirtatious, like in a way that's not off -putting to anyone, but a way that you just, I really like this person. This person seems like a good person. I want to be around them because they seem friendly. They seem happy. They seem excited about the content and they seem smart. It's just how it feels when you listen to this voiceover artist and remember the energy level of the music way up here, the energy level of the introduction by the female voiceover artist way up here, the engagement level on those things. It's like, you're getting excited. And then my client came in on the first two episodes, which are being replaced. The first couple of episodes, he came in, like you hear all this excitement and he's this. And basically it was like, as if he was a late night DJ. Have you heard of a late night DJ? Some of you might be so young. You don't really know what FM and AM radio is. You don't recall what these things are. You never experienced it. You always had wifi and Bluetooth and phones that could hold like thousands of songs. And that's not the case for all of us. For some of us, we didn't have those things. We're old enough to remember when we had to fine tune a big giant radio dial until it hit the exact right mark to tune in to a station from far, far away. And we recall that with these radio stations at night, the DJ spoke a little bit differently. They weren't trying to be your friend anymore. They were trying to stay out of the way so that you wouldn't have to get woken up by their introduction or their music or what they're saying to you. So it was very soothing. It was very calming. And you could actually sleep through this. I used to listen to this classical music. Actually, it's funny, random listening to classical music right now in the other room. And then it's funny. I haven't listened to classical in a while, but I used to compose music and I love it. I love classical. Anyone who knows me from junior high and high school knows that practically the only thing that I would listen to is Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart. Those are my three favorites. Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and Pachelbel. I like Canon and D. But anyway, getting back on track, I would listen to classical music on something. I don't remember it was 98. It was 89 .1. It doesn't matter. It was late night station that I would sleep to. And I always appreciated that the DJs had their late night voice. I was like, I'm so glad that this guy or the girl wasn't waking me up with their energy, with their higher level of energy. They were chill and they were calm. And they would mention the next song that was coming on and they would do it in a tone like this and they would do it in an energy like this so that it wouldn't really disrupt me while I was sleeping. I don't love it when you record your podcast episode with a late night DJ voice, unless you're specifically trying to help people sleep. That's the case. Do it. I love it now. But for most of the people that would listen to this podcast, they're going to be people with normal, good energy level. They're going to be optimistic and excited about life. And you've got to be careful and cautious of the energy level that you come to town with, come to the podcast with and record with because it can be bad to go above and beyond like it can be bad if you're so over the top, so above average that people wonder if it's even real. People wonder if this is a fake. How can this guy really be this way? How can this girl really be this way? They're hiding something. Why are they so happy? Nobody's that happy. And so you could get some criticism by coming too high of a getting some criticism. You could also turn off your perfect avatar who needs you by going way too above and beyond, way too excitable. That could actually turn people off as well or being the monotone late night DJ voice, the Eeyore, if you will, going to maybe turn other people off as well. So you want to fine tune it. And we've talked about this multiple times on the podcast, but not in this way. In the way that I'm delivering it with you now, it's a little bit different. The energy is a little bit different. My thoughts on it are a little bit different. My analogies are a little bit different, but it still goes to show the part that stays the same is A, you got to focus on your energy. You have to understand your energy. B, you need to come in with the same energy level as your intro. That's your music and your voiceover artist. You got to come in with the same. And finally, you want to stay somewhere in the six to eight numbers. So if five is average and one is just completely dead and two is barely alive and three is Eeyore and four is just slightly below average, five being average, six being about what I'm giving you right now. I am giving you mostly a six or a seven, sometimes maybe an eight right now. And then there's 10, which is like, we'll even say there's an 11. 11 is above and beyond, like way over the top. 10 is your most excited level. And it's probably too much. It's probably too loud. And nine is a little step back, but probably still too much. So it's really that six, seven, eight, that's going to get you the best results for you, the energy level. So let's go back to number two. And that is to imitate, to copy, to mimic or to mirror the level of energy that your introduction comes in with. How do we do this? Well, for this client, what I mentioned to him, and I was like, bro, you know, I love you, right? He's been a friend for a lot longer than he's been a client. I go, bro, you know, I love you, right? And he's like, yeah, what is it? I know you're going to say something. I'm like, I just want to make sure that you got it with love is that the energy of your music on point. It is an eight energy of your voiceover artist. Great. She's giving an eight energy. And then you're coming in with a four and it sounds like something changed. It immediately confuses us. Also, we just noticed that you don't seem excited because when we get you next to those eights, it comes down. And so I gave him three options. I said, brother, going to give you three options. I sound like I'm from Scotland going to give you three options. I don't know if I'm doing a good accent for Scottish, but I do have some Scottish blood going back to my clients. I want to give them three options. They said, I'm going to give you three options. Option number one is that we take down, redo the music and the voiceover artist so that they are coming in with a five and a half or six so that you can come in with a four or five. And people aren't going to notice it so much. I said option number two, we can leave the voiceover artist. We can leave the music because you chose it. You said you liked it. You said it was perfect for your avatar so we can leave it. But you've got to at least start out your podcast and hear me out. If you're listening to this episode, this is a part to listen to and to write down and pay attention to. I said this to him as well. If those are coming out at an eight, you've got to start at an eight. You've got to come in and be like, what's up? It's blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. It's John Stockton. It's Adam Adams. It's Carl Carlson. It's Sarah Saracen. Is that a real name? Sarah Saracen. John Johnson, Carl Carlson, Swen Swenson and Sarah Saracen. Sarah Saratops. I'll say that. You come in at the same level. What I told him is you've got to listen to the intro music prior to recording. You've got to listen to your voiceover artist prior to recording. You have to have around that same level. Now, once you establish that level, you can slowly move up and down through the podcast and it will be fine. I said option number three. Option number three is the hardest option, the most challenging, difficult option, but you might want to do it. He's like, what is that? What's option number three? And my response is that option number three is we leave the music, the original theme music and the intro by the voiceover artist. In this case, a woman. We leave those where they are. You still listen to them prior to recording to make sure you're matching and mirroring, copying and imitating and not going too far above or beyond. But you also, instead of partway through your podcast, letting your tonality and your emotion go way below, you would maintain it and constantly you would maybe even write a six or a seven, six, seven or eight on your wall behind your recording. And this would allow you to always say, I've got it throughout the whole episode. I've got to be cordial. I've got to be friendly. I've got to be warm and inviting and flirtatious and helpful and excited and passionate about what I'm talking about, because those are the things that bring your people to you. It's your energy. It's how you come across. Don't forget it. Maintain that energy level at a six, seven or eight, especially if you've got music and a voiceover artist. You want to make sure that you are matching that when at least when you launch or going back to option number one. If you can't do any of that, it will be OK for you to record music that's at a four or five and an intro that's at a four or five if you really need to be at a three, four or five, because then it won't be so drastic. It'll be flow a little bit better. But I need to say again, it's still better to come in a little above average, not over the top, but a little above average at a level six, seven or eight. Got an interview episode coming up. Don't go away. This one was short. I'll see you on the next episode. Oh, hey, because three of my clients came to me recently looking to find a way to have their podcast make the money instead of cost them money. We put together a resource for some of our clients and I want to give it to you as well. It's something that did actually seem to help because one of them is now making twenty six hundred a month. Another one forty five hundred a month. And the third is making between five thousand and ten thousand each month. And so it's been a resource that's been incredibly valuable to them. It's our sponsor sheet template. It's a template of a sponsor sheet and it gives you something that you can hand to potential sponsors and hopefully also be making twenty six hundred, forty five hundred or between five and ten K regularly each month with your podcast. So this has been a contributing factor to helping all three of those clients turn their podcast into an additional income stream for them. And the way that you can find it is just going to our website, growyourshow .com, but put in forward slash templates, growshow .com forward slash templates, and then you can actually download that template and others that could be valuable to your podcasting experience. I'll see you on the next episode.
A highlight from 1374: $500,000 Bitcoin Now on Table by THIS Date
"In today's show, we're going to be discussing the Bitcoin bulls risk trading a range loss as the Bitcoin price nears two month lows.

According to crypto analysts, we'll also be discussing the Bitcoin price will surge past $150 ,000 if the spot ETFs are approved. According to Tom Lee, quoting him here, well, if the spot Bitcoin gets approved, I think demand will be greater than the daily supply of Bitcoin. And so the clearing price is over $150 ,000. It could even be $180 ,000. Also in today's show, $500 ,000 Bitcoin price now on the table as classic indicator suggests a parabolic rally incoming.

Welcome everyone. Just tuning into today's show. This is pod episode number 1374. I'm your host JV and today is August 17th, 2023 and checking out our market watch. As you can see on the screen, the market is correcting. We finally broke back below that $28 support, ,000 unfortunately, but we're right on the cusp of it and we're down about 4 % for the day. We also have ether back down at roughly the $1700 level and checking out coinmarketcap .com. The current crypto market cap sits at 1 .1 trillion with 43 billion in volume in the past 24 hours with the Bitcoin dominance at 49 % even and the ether dominance at 18 .8 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers in the past 24 hours. We have rune leading the pack up 3 % trading at $1 .57 followed by cosmos at 1 % trading just under eight bucks followed by our weave only up 0 .8 % trading above $5 and the rest, I mean not much in the green as virtually everything's correcting in the red. As you can see here, the top gainers for the week. What do we got to out of the top 100 actually in the green meaning 98 % losers not looking so great at the current time being and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a 50 which is neutral. Yesterday was a 52 last week of 53 and last month a 56 in greed. So there you have it and welcome to y 'all just joining the live show. We got a jam packed session for you. So without further ado, let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what's popping with the king crypto Bitcoin targeted two month lows today on August 17th as the US inflation returned to spook the crypto markets. And here you're looking at the not so sexy looking Bitcoin one hour candle chart data from coin Telegraph and trading view confirmed the lowest Bitcoin price level since June 21st with Bitcoin wicking to 28 ,300 is the current low. The downside came after the US fed published the minutes of its July meeting to discuss future monetary policy quoting the FOMC here, participants discussed several risk management considerations that can bear on future policy decisions with inflation still well above the committee's longer run goal and the labor market remaining tight. Most participants continue to see significant upside risks to inflation, which could require further tightening on monetary policy. Now, while the fed equally voiced uncertainty over the effects of existing monetary tightening. Now, do you notice they always talk about uncertainty and fear? Why that's so they can manipulate the markets FYI, keep you in fear and keep you away from Bitcoin the best they can. Let me know if they're doing a good job at it. Now, these included the 21 week and 100 days simple moving averages, which currently sit at 28 ,600 and 28 ,570, which you can see here in this chart. Now, Bitcoin also challenged the lower boundary of the multi -month trading range previously highlighted by popular traders, Dan crypto, as well as crypto Tony quoting him here, 28 ,8 has now been lost in Bitcoin. So I'll be looking to short this down now while we remain below 28 ,8. Now, meanwhile, not everyone appeared to be convinced that the next FOMC meeting in September would yield higher rates. According to the CME groups, fed watch tool, the odds of the fed keeping that current rate intact remained that nearly 90 % after the release and quoting Caleb Franzen disinflation plus stronger earnings plus stronger economic data plus nearing the end of the rate hike cycles has been the perfect recipe for market returns and the development of an uptrend. Now, while these conditions could change in the future, I don't see any evidence that it has changed yet. So there you have it. Let me know if you're currently bullish or bearish on the King crypto. Do you think we're likely to continue dropping even lower? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss continued Latin American adoption in Argentina as the pro Bitcoin president is winning, at least in the primary. This is actually quite enticing and interesting. So let's break this down and shout out to everyone in Argentina. The price of Bitcoin jumped to a fresh high in Argentina since the news of the Bitcoin friendly presidential candidate Javier Malay won the primary election on August 13th with one Bitcoin reaching a value of 10 .2 million Argentine pesos on August 14th, according to data from CoinGecko. And while the global crypto markets are experiencing a notable slump, some parts of the world are still recording new all -time highs for BTC. In Argentina, Bitcoin has seen a sharp climb this week with Bitcoin rallying 21 % from 8 .4 million ARS to 10 .2 million in less than one hour on Monday. Look at this chart. Let's go. At the same time, Bitcoin has been steadily gaining against ARS since late 2022. And since hitting a new record high, Bitcoin price versus ARS has dropped slightly. And the most recent Bitcoin rally in Argentina has been attributed to the presidential primary win by pro -Bitcoin presidential candidate Javier Malay. After winning the primary with more than 30 % of the votes, Malay is now the front runner in Argentina's general election in October. Could you imagine if he does become the president and adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender as their population is much larger than El Salvador? Now, as previously reported, Malay wants to abolish the central bank and adopt the US dollar as Argentine's currency. The presidential candidate also believes that Bitcoin is a reaction against the central bank scammers, while fiat currency allows the politicians to scam Argentines with inflation per each. And with Bitcoin, we've seen record highs, as you know, in Argentina recently. With Bitcoin has been in the decline, however, in the global markets since August 14th, Bitcoin lost about 4 % of its value versus the dollar, dropping below that key psychological level of 29 ,000 just yesterday on August 16th. Argentina is not the only country that has seen Bitcoin price at its highest historic levels amid the massive inflation of recent. Bitcoin has also been trading near all -time high levels in countries like Turkey, which reportedly saw its inflation rate rising to nearly 50 % in July. And in July, Bitcoin climbed to the highest level versus the Turkish lira, reaching a value of 819 ,000 Turkish lira per BTC, according to data from CoinGecko. And quoting Malay, or actually is quoting myself regarding Malay, anyone walking around with a scepter, preaching the holy gospel of Satoshi while exposing the central banking cartel has my full support. So let's freaking go. How many of you would love to see him be elected of president in Argentina? And do you think he will abolish the central banking cartel if he wins? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now we all know we've been waiting upon a spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States for over a decade, but guess what? The regulators are approving futures ETFs. They just gave Coinbase the green light to do both Bitcoin and ETH futures, believe it or not. Let's break this down and welcome y 'all just joining us. Make sure to say hello in the live chat. American crypto exchange Coinbase has acquired approval from the government to offer Bitcoin and Ether futures in the US and a new blog post. Coinbase says it's been given the green light by the National Futures Association to manage a futures commission merchant and offer eligible US traders, both Bitcoin and Ethereum futures products. Now, FCMs are federally regulated entities that offer and accept futures contracts related to securities and commodities. Putting them here in September of 2021, we filed an application with the NFA to register an FCM. Our team has worked with regulators since then to ensure we'll comply with all the necessary regulations that our FCM's business model meets with the CFTCs, customer requirements. protection And today we're pleased to announce the approval has been secured, which will allow eligible US customers to access regulated derivatives products through Coinbase financial markets and alongside our spot market for a seamless experience subject to the oversight of the CFTC and NFA. Now, just keep in mind that derivatives are a financial weapon of mass destruction. They're not going to help you, fam. It's just only going to get you wrecked. So is it surprising that the SEC approved this and continues to not allow spot ETFs? You let me know your opinion. According to the blog post, Coinbase will be the first crypto firm to offer both traditional spot market trading as well as federally regulated crypto futures. Quitting them again here, the global crypto derivatives market represents 75 % of crypto trading volume worldwide and is a critical trader access point. The ability to trade using margin gives customers leverage so you can get wrecked and access to the crypto market with less upfront investment than traditional spot trading and being able to express long and short positions. Investors also use derivatives to manage risks on their underlying crypto assets. So there you have it. I am curious by a show of hands, how many of you have ever dabbled with futures ever before or have traded with leverage? Let me know in the comments. And how many of you actually have real plans to actually take advantage of Coinbase futures for either Bitcoin or Ethereum? Let me know. Or if you're going to be staying away from it, I'd love to know your thoughts and your feedback. And with that being shared, let's now discuss a Bitcoin supply shock, which could be incoming. And then we'll be discussing Tom Lee's prediction of $150 ,000 to $180 ,000 Bitcoin price once the ETF gets approved in the US, followed by the latest from quant analyst Plan B, creator of the Bitcoin stock to flow model, predicting a $500 ,000 Bitcoin price incoming along with the timeframe and timeline. Yeah, so let's break down the supply shock first. Popular crypto analyst believes Bitcoin will witness another bull run, even if the regulators all reject the ETFs. We're talking about Josh Rager. According to the crypto strategist, the halving, which slashes Bitcoin miners rewards in half, which is scheduled to be less than nine months out, will create a supply issue that sends Bitcoin price into a bull territory next year without a spot based ETF acting as a catalyst. So virtually saying we don't need the ETF, we're going to go bull either way. I would say due to the supply issue and the block reward cut in half that Bitcoin halving is definitely will have an impact on the price, but the impact on price is delayed usually by a couple of months. If you look at the past historical Bitcoin halvings and where the price started uptrend post event, the Bitcoin ETF is a significant factor in overall Bitcoin price and will have a major influence in upcoming year. Still, even if ETF was denied, though I don't see this happening this time, with the Bitcoin supply crisis at hand, it'll very likely Bitcoin price will continue to uptrend throughout 2024 after an ETF denial dump. And Josh highlights that the post halving uptrend has historical precedence, but notes that a sample size is low, quitting him again alongside this chart. One can't deny the fundamentals and impact that a decrease in block reward has an overall price over the following years. Even if the ETF denial happens, Bitcoin will still run up in 2024. He continues on to share my prediction for Bitcoin price over the next year. Bitcoin ETF in September also gets postponed until March. Price pulls back and continues to chop range between 20 and 30 ,000 over the next six months. ETF approved by March. Bitcoin price pumps into the halving event around April, maybe up until 40 ,000. And after the halving, price stalls and pulls back a bit for the week following. An up -only Bitcoin price action starts sometime around June -July of 2024 and runs hard into early -mid 2025. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analyst Josh Rager that we're likely to start pumping and run up as we prepare for the next halving event. And now let's discuss the latest from Fundstrat's Tom Lee, who was recently interviewed on TV and made a very bold prediction that with the approval of an ETF in the United States, Bitcoin price is likely to rocket to between 150 and $180 ,000. Let me start by actually, I transcribed what he shared in this interview in case you missed it. Here's what he had to say when asked, I always like hearing your price targets because you are always so fearless. Where are you on Bitcoin by the end of next year, let's say? And Tom Lee responded, well, if the spot Bitcoin gets approved, I think the demand will be greater than the daily supply of Bitcoin. And so the clearing price is over $150 ,000. It could even be $180 ,000 per BTC. And they asked, that's only if the spot ETF gets approved. And Thomas Lee responded, yeah, a spot US because a spot Bitcoin ETF is approved already outside the US. And when asked, but if not approved, then are we just lingering at around 29 ,000? In which he responded, there is still upside cast because of the halving next year. So you'll have a drop in supply again. So the clearing price has to increase, but it won't be six figures. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Tom Lee. I definitely agree that because of the halving, regardless of the ETF, the price is destined to go up. But if we do get that ETF, it's just going to go up that much faster. Now in June, Wall Street, Heavyweights, Fidelity, Invesco, Wisdom Tree and Valkyrie followed BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager and applying for Bitcoin Spot ETF with the SEC. However, some of these firms may not learn their fate until sometime in 2024, as the SEC has up to 240 more days to make a final decision on an application after commencing the review process. And naturally, they're just going to continue to push it back as long as they can. The outcome for Grayscale's appeal to convert its GBTC Trust product into a spot Bitcoin ETF is however expected to come sooner rather than later. We have Bloomberg ETF analyst, Eric Balchunes and James Safart, who recently estimated there's a 65 % chance of these Bitcoin Spot ETFs being approved by the regulator, a significant increase from before BlackRock's application. Others have tipped that a 100 ,000 Bitcoin price can come much sooner than expected with Blockstream CEO Adam Back recently wagering that Bitcoin will notch the new price milestone the month before the halving. But what are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments right down below. And now let's discuss our breaking story of the day. And that's Plan B, the Quant Analyst. He just went live on his YouTube channel yesterday and shared some very bullish predictions regarding the stock, the flow, umbrella to strength index and these indicators, which are lining up perfectly right now for a bullish rally to take us to a new stratosphere of all time highs at around the time of the halving of next year. So let's break this down and welcome to everyone just joining us and tuning in. I appreciate everyone's continuous support. So here we go. And shout out to Plan B, the widely followed crypto analyst as a historical, reliable suggests indicator Bitcoin's price may surpass six figures in about one year and a new strategy session. The Quant Analyst tells his YouTube subs that Bitcoin's RSI, which is the relative strength index, appears to be repeating a pattern that previously signaled parabolic rallies. That's right. The RSI is an indicator that tracks the momentum of an asset. Here's what Plan B had to share in this recent interview video. It would mean that the RSI is going to rise from here towards the halving. There will be volatility, of course. It may not be in a straight line, then a bull market in 2024 with an RSI of around 90 or a little above, little below, doesn't matter. And then a bear market after that in 2025, 2026. Plan B uses a stock to flow model to predict the Bitcoin price and alignment with the forecasted RSI pattern. Now the stock, the flow traditionally used to track the performance of commodities such as precious metals and compares an asset's price to its available supply. So virtually it's supply and demand. The model indicates the Bitcoin can hit $60 ,000 heading into the expected April 2024 halving event. Send it, let's go. That's when the miner's rewards, as you know, are cut in half, followed by a massive move to between $300 ,000 and $500 ,000 per coin, quoting him here. And in Bitcoin price, it will look like this. So we are here at the moment at this $30 ,000 level, stuck for months there. And in this scenario that I just showed in RSI, this is the price that belongs to that. So it would rise with volatility towards the halving around the stock to flow value of $60 ,000 per coin. And then the bull market really goes on the second stage of the bull market with FOMO and greed. And then in this scenario, it's a rather conservative bull market that bottoms out or flattens out just below the stock to flow value of $500 ,000. So this averages at ,000, $300 which is still pretty okay. I would guess it is 10X from here. So there you have it. He's virtually saying on a conservative perspective, expect the Bitcoin price to rise 10X from the current price to roughly 300 ,000. And on a bullish perspective, we can see the Bitcoin price climb as high as $500 ,000 per coin post 2024 halving, which again is around the corner, scheduled to be sometime in April of 2024. And to watch this video he did, Plan B on RSI, Bitcoin of $300 ,000, which he shared on YouTube, check the show notes below the video in the description. And what are your thoughts? Do you feel Plan B will be correct and we're likely to hit a multiple six figure price post 2024 halving and even a climbing as high as 60 ,000 before the halving? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

"98%" Discussed on The Catechism in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz)
"And daily notifications today is day 98 reading paragraphs 6 89 to 6 93 we're continuing our time with the Holy Spirit and we're going to talk about two kind of big things and the two big things are the joint mission of the sun and the Holy Spirit and also the names titles and symbols of the leisure. We're just going to get to the names and titles of the Holy Spirit. But what we mean by paragraph 6 89 and 6 90, the joint mission of the sun and the spirit is that man, this is incredible. When the sun and the spirit act, they act together. We also we recognize, of course, they are distinct. There are two of the three divine persons in those holy Trinity. So they're distinct. The church always professes the distinction of persons. At the same time, this is a paragraph 6 89. When the father sends his word, he also sends his breath. And I think that's such a poetic, but also you can see how that's the case. And I think that might have been like a St. Augustine kind of an example, like you have the speaker. That's the father. You have the word spoken. That's the sun, and you have the breath that accompanies the word. We have this when the father senses word, he always sends his breath, and this is the last line in paragraph 6 89. Or a second to last line. In their joint mission, the sun and the Holy Spirit are distinct, but inseparable. And this is just remarkable. So we're going to talk about the joint mission of the sun and the Holy Spirit. That here's Jesus, who's anointed and the spirit is his anointing, like all that. It's just a remarkable and they're also going to hear from saint Gregory of nyssa, who I think he captures this with his image of the surface of a water and oil and you're going to hear all about it, but basically there's oil in the water and you come in contact with the water you're coming in contact with the oil and vice versa. It's one of those, you'll love it. It's a great example. Great analogy that saint Gregory of Nessa uses in paragraph 6 90. We're also going to talk about the proper name of the Holy Spirit. And so that is Holy Spirit, right? So we can call the father the father we call it the son, Jesus, and we call the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit. And so the church is going to make a distinction. This is really remarkable, I think. We receive that name, Holy Spirit, from the lord. And we use it in holy baptism. I baptize you in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit. So we recognize that we use that when we baptize people, anyone. The term spirit is the Hebrew word ruach, right? Which means breath, air, and wind. And so that's the Holy Spirit is the name of the third person of eternity. He had at the same time, this makes the cats that makes this point in paragraph 6 91 that the word spirit and the word holy are divine attributes common to all three divine persons. Does that make sense? So the father is the spirit and the son is spirit and the father is holy in the sun is holy, but by joining those two terms.

"You've got the Facebook pixel setup or the LinkedIn insights tag, you can then go in and advertise to people who've been to your website. So there's benefit to driving traffic to your website in a newsletter is one of the best ways to do it. Definitely. So every now and then you might drive someone to a YouTube or to a channel, but in general, we like the idea of putting them on your website. Yeah, not if you can help it. Embed the videos on your website. Make sure you've got in your emails, even if it's a longer form article you've written, you've got perhaps a paragraph there that gives them a taste, but then gives them the chance to read more on your site. I love giving them a cliffhanger too, right? Like something that's really enticing and then right at the end, it's like, oh, you kind of left me hanging. You got to read more. Okay, so that's a great way to increase your click throughs. How do I increase subscribers? How do I go about building that list initially? Now initially, we're thinking, let's not be too picky here. Clients, prospects, centers of influence. Let's put those people in your newsletter list. Correspondence of Stevens, a friend of mine, he just emails me randomly, and I think, you know what? Well, I just add him to my list. I'm not that I want to spam people, but I'm not going to be too picky about who I am. No, and it flies in the face of a lot of what you read. We have multiple books here, not that we've written, but we've read on email marketing. And almost all of them would say, be very picky. Double opt in. I was going to say our list is crazy high quality. I don't buy it. It doesn't resonate to me. It's not like you're feeling there's a difference, Kevin and having a newsletter list that has some odds and ends there that have accumulated over the years versus having built a follower base on Facebook, for example, that is very disparate. And really has not that much interest in your content. There, it hurts you with a newsletter, it really doesn't. Unless you're scared of paying the charge for MailChimp or whatever for having a lot of subscribers. I have too many subscribers. Not a problem. But when you're thinking about how to add people there, it is a constant focus. And Kevin, you've always done a good job with this Matt as well. Just in terms of always be thinking about that number. What's our number? How can we get it going? Back in the day, it used to be. And he would get a little bit of an eye roll admittedly here. But Matt, every time he would go out, he would bring back this stack of business cards and part of you would be like, oh, this is great. The other part of you is the intern or the new research associate was like, oh great, I gotta go, I gotta go put all these into the database. I'm typing from business cards and putting emails in. Thankfully now, you do enough of that over the years and you get a big email list. Another tip make it really easy for people to sign up on your actual website. Don't hide this, make it make it clear, make it abundant. I'm not a huge fan of the pop ups though. I can't stand those when I'm on a website. I'm scrolling and all of a sudden it's like my screen is filled with this huge pop up that's like, don't miss out. Join our newsletter, but then I can't even minimize it and it's just the pain. Make it somewhere on your website that is easy for people to subscribe. At the bottom of your content is a really good place to do that too. The other thing that you mentioned is handed at it, but running ads, there's nothing against running ads talking about your newsletter. Why people should consider joining lead magnets would be another reason to do this. And for advisers who run ads on Facebook or LinkedIn and they have a lead magnet that entices someone to download something for an email address, one of the misnomers there a lot of advisers say, well, that's a lead now. I should they're interested in becoming a client or I should be calling them and for the most part, that's not going to happen. I mean, for the most part, they're just trying to get whatever download they can, put them in that nurture campaign. Put them in that. To me, a newsletter is the ultimate nurturing campaign. Totally. And that intent really influences how the lead capture works. Yes. So if you go into it thinking, this is and we hear this locks, we build websites for financial advisers, reach out if you're interested. But we build websites in the number one feature request from everybody out there is I want lead capture when they say we capture they're thinking about someone completing a form in exchange for a free consultation, a free white paper or what have you that gives us their name and email and phone number and whatever other information they're looking for and oftentimes they come to us with that request because their previous websites have done a poor job in attracting that kind of information. But the mentality that we want people to have is that we don't need all that information. Because our intention for the most part is not to capture that quote unquote lead and call them up. For the most part, it's to capture just their email and put it into our database. And you'll notice on oxalate dot com, it's pretty prominent, we have it on multiple pages, and it's just simply give us your email. I don't care what your name is or where you live. Just give us your email. We do send you a little bit of a welcome sequence after the subscribe. We try to make it kind of fun and clever if you haven't subscribed to our newsletter, go to our website, oxley dot com and make sure you do that. Okay, so increase the subscribers, track that metric. This leads me to the next question, which is what KPIs should I be paying attention to. If I have a newsletter, how do I know that I'm making progress towards growing that audience and that I'm doing the right things? First thing I open rates is going to be one that you definitely want to be looking at. That's going to take some time. Again, that's a sender reputation subject line, et cetera. I would also say that with that, it's less of you can look up benchmarks across the industry. What's the average open rate, but most of those are going to feel a little bit meaningless? They are. Because they're so there's such a wide range. I think it's more competing against yourself. Yes. You want to see that number going on? Exactly. Yeah. Because again, for many of you, your goal is probably going to be like, I need to get to a thousand subscribers, right? That's probably a good initial goal to set. It's not comparing you against different benchmarks where people have thousands and thousands of subscribers. Click throughs, clicks is another one that you want to be looking at, whether there's going up or down subscribers or those trending up on a regular basis, and you mentioned this one in advance of the podcast recording today. Unsubscribers. Are we noticing that people are just opting out of our newsletter, then maybe we're not providing the right value. Yeah. And don't take it too personally if you get unsubscribes everybody does. It's just a matter of analyzing. So when you're looking at each of these different aspects, you're looking at click through rate. What position is getting the most clicks? What types of topics are getting the most action? When you look at unsubscribes, are they coming on the heels of your newsletter or are they coming on the heels of that stand-alone webinar promotion that you did? Exactly. So what type of email elicits the unsubscribe? Like with us, I mean, when we send out something purely promotional, the unsubscribe rate is higher than if it's a newsletter. Yeah, so we don't try and do a lot of that. We actually just put so much time and energy into our newsletter itself, which, by the way, every time we send that, get some unsubscribes. Like, it does. No matter what. So we're aware of that, but we don't even send a lot of just straight promotional emails because we actually weave that into the newsletter itself. Well, it's a good point to bring up because a lot of people when they start in the newsletter space. And this has been for years and years that it is meant to be a way to nurture leads. And sometimes we're overly promotional. Because here's how it worked for us. When we would send more promotional emails like we're trying to fill up a rainmaker weekend or something, you'd get some immediate gratification in the sense that people would sign up. Anyway, this is awesome. We got to send this one again next week. But over time, when you're doing that, you're also losing subscribers who may want to come to future events if you'd been a little bit more patient. You burn your list, definitely. We did this. We've done this for a long time. We've done email marketing for years and years. And when you said rainmaker weekend that really kind of resonated with me because one of my initial kind of jobs when I first started with oxley was Philip these rainmaker weekends. Kevin, you focused on marketing and I would send promos and they would work, but then you would notice that there would be a gradual decline in how much they would work. And people would unsubscribe and that would just hurt your, well, we would decide whether we were going to send four or 5 or 6 stand-alone emails about it. Yeah, too.

"Hello everyone and welcome back to episode 98 of the Steven and Kevin chow and today we're gonna be talking about newsletters for financial advisers. 98 feels pretty good. I'm gonna say closing in on 100 so close. So today, a topic that we talk a lot about here internally and oxalate. Newsletters have long been a part of our operation, but we haven't talked a ton about it with all of you. So we'd like to share with you some of what we have learned through trial and error tons and tons and tons of newsletters over the years. And in hopes that, as you build and continue to improve your newsletters that this will be helpful. So before we get into it though, just remember, if you like this content, make sure you like, subscribe, leave us a comment. We'd really appreciate it. So let's get into it. We're going to frame this in the form of questions that we've heard advisers ask or oppose to us from our standpoint. So the first one is why should I even consider having a newsletter? Why do they matter for financial advisers? Yeah, I think they matter for all of you, the same way that they matter for us. It's a way to engage people from afar. It helps gives you some variety in terms of how you're making outreach, it's not all telephone. It's not all text. It's not all social. I like that. I like the idea of certain people prefer different mediums. Some people just are not on social. And email is a really good way to engage them. One of the things I've heard you mention before Steven is the idea of owned versus rented audience, right? And owned audience being, I have your email. I'm owning that, right? I'm owning that email and I can reach out to you whenever I want versus rented is you're kind of from a social standpoint, you're at the mercy of the networks. Algorithm changes. Either the mercy of the algorithm in terms of whether or not it's deciding to spread your content or the mercy of your advertising budget that you're having to pay these networks to spread your stuff. Yes. So when we over time collect a lot of email addresses now we've got an audience that somewhat captive. I also like that it's not just prospect focus, right? Clients. Centers of influence. And perspective clients. All of those parties can benefit from some sort of newsletter, but from our standpoint, the days of these boilerplate mark it update, kind of automated newsletters are coming to an end. Oh, it is like, I hate to say it, but it's a real rarity that we see a newsletter done right. Right. Like the vast majority of them and I think because it's so easy for people to do are very boilerplate financial a newsletter. And you think about your marketplace for some of you may have a group of subscribers that are really interested in some technical outlook or somehow to whereas I think the vast majority of people, especially when you move up market or more interested in things that have been personalized. They're either sharing insights about you as a financial adviser and your team and your family or they're offering insights directly from you in the form of video or audio or written content? Right. But it's not. I think as you get more and more money, you have less and less interest in really basic financial articles coming to your inbox. Yeah, it's one thing to take the box and say, well, we got an email newsletter. It's another to say, I actually put some time and energy into it, and I'm going to try and create something that people want to read. So, you know, as you think about some of the recommendations that we offer financial advisers who are wanting to get into newsletters or wanting to improve newsletters, it is that you don't have to do that many of them. So if you're thinking about, well, that sounds like a lot of work. It kind of is. I have got to put forth video. I've got to highlight team members and I'll get into some of that today. But even if you did that once a month and it was really good, that would be far better than sending out a weekly piece that's kind of boring. Exactly. All right, so a lot of benefits as to why we think advisers should be embracing newsletters more as long as they're the right type. Next question here is what's the difference between a newsletter and an email sequence? And the first point I want to throw out here is that an email sequence, right? A series of emails typically built to nurture a quote unquote lead, have a finite ending, right? They have a sequence, and then they're going to end at some point. Versus a newsletter is ongoing. It's reoccurring. So the most common email sequence would be a welcome series. So that if somebody newly subscribes to your newsletter, that they would get a predetermined set of maybe two or three immediate emails over the course of a few days or a few weeks that introduced them to you, your company, and what's to come maybe in that series. Yes. But then it's over, right? Or perhaps it's an email sequence that comes on the heels of a webinar you did. And you want to continually send out a few resources afterwards to stay top of mind for people who may be considering your services. And those things have a place, right? They have a purpose, but a newsletter, what we're talking about today. Is something that's going to be ongoing reoccurring and it doesn't have a finite ending. Instead, it's more of it's something that your audience expects to get. I'm expecting that once a month or once a week, whatever that frequency might be, that I'm going to get that newsletter. I'm waiting for it. Absolutely. And it brings about another good point, camera, which is you do want to pick a time and date that that email goes out every week. Or every month. Whatever your frequency is. And I say, we send ours weekly because we put out a lot of content. Yeah. So we've got enough to put into a newsletter weekly to make an interesting. If we only put together one article or one video a month, it would be too much. I remember going to content marketing world. This is years ago. And I saw one of the speakers there, we were talking about email marketing and he said, when it comes to newsletters, he said, make an appointment with your audience. So whatever the frequency is, let them know that I'm going to send this, the first of every month. You're going to receive this every Tuesday at in your inbox. You're going to get this. Like making an appointment with them so they know what to expect. And they're waiting for it. And not everybody does, right? I mean, there's I couldn't tell you when and how certain emails arrive in my inbox, but other people do. And we notice that when we send an email that's off schedule or with this one, we get notified. People are like, hey, I thought I usually get the Tuesday morning special. That's true. So we try and send those ours on Tuesday morning. The other thing is we noticed a drop off in open rates and click throughs when we don't send it on our schedule time. So anyway, all right, next question here is, what content should you include in a good financial adviser newsletter? Yeah, a variety. I would say. In a heavy heavy premium on content that you've had a hand in creating. So that is 100% what differentiates a boilerplate newsletter versus one that people actually want to read is did you, as the thought leader put effort into an article, a video, a hand, like a personalized introduction a lead in. Did you put any effort into it at all? And if so, I'm going to take the time to look at it and see what pictures and videos you put in there. If not it, I'm moving on. I like that. A personalized lead in your content marketing, whatever you're creating yourself, some educational content. Also announcements. Maybe there's a birthday on the team. Maybe one of your clients just ran a half marathon and you have their permission to kind of show them off in your newsletter, which is not a bad idea why, because they'll share it with other people. But maybe it's a center of influence that you want with somebody you'd like to highlight their business, links to social icons, reminding people to follow you on Facebook and on LinkedIn and so forth. But a good variety I think helps keep it interesting helps keep people follow along. Next question here is one and look, we've done email marketing for a long time. And so this is one that we were brainstorming in advance and I wanted to throw out to Steven and we both had the same opinion on it, but I wasn't sure what your opinion was going to be. And that is, should I.

"Was he a substantial contributing factor. If i'm a juror. I think would say yes. Why for what reason So i mean the defense is kind of setting this this story up where they're like okay. Federal could've contributed i agree. The chart contributed i agree. The carbon monoxide could have contributed. I don't agree. And then the the prosecution is saying the the lawns them sitting on his back pressing in between the cement and the knee could've or did contribute. This is what they're saying. And i don't agree with that because there's no bruising and he's a small guy on top of a huge guy And then the carotid artery. I don't agree with but the stress that they caused him. I think i think could have caused his hard. Because we actually were talking before the show and you had brought that up you said something about. I think you mentioned a couple of things. One of them was stress or maybe they were all kinds of symptoms of stress. But like if i'm yelling at someone and saying hey you're you're fat. You're a fat loser. Hey fatty and i'm stressing someone out i am. I see substantial cost to the death. Is that how you're looking at. It would be a substantial contributing cost. Okay because i think. I think that you're looking at substantial caused death like the wrong like this is a psychological thing like if you're going to stress out its psychological like you're talking about. He got bullied but he's getting bullied to an extreme. Where it's it's reasonable. I think to say that it's a cause. Because this is a violent encounter that he's subjected to but you're not saying that the physicality was a substantial contributing factor. In fact you just denied that it was your. I don't think. I don't think it was the way the defense said it was but they kind of cover their bases because they had another expert witness say it was the heart doctor baker. I totally agree that they covered their if they could. They could do scattershot and they say the you know. The moon was in alignment and it was pulling gravity blood to go to his head and away from his heart like like they could just they could have every witness cover every single base like that that to me is bullshit like you got. I think i think you can have a so. I'm kind of stepping on what i think right now. But it's totally possible. You could have one juror. Say yeah. I think died. Because he couldn't breathe and then another juror would say why he died because his up because and they both think what was caused by the police on top of them and then they would both guilty right for different reasons and so they're talking. Well you think. I think the heart did it. Well i think the lung said okay. Well we both agree that he died because of the cop right so even if we disagree we both agree guilty right. Yeah we okay. Well let's move on and like you know we're not sure the details but we both basically agree right. Okay maybe yes. So i i as a juror i would. I would think that yeah. I would agree with that. But i again so because because he was allowed to do those things he was trained to to act that way. And you know maybe. I have a problem with the way it's supposed to detain people. Those are the rules right. Like i didn't make the rules. I disagree with the roles. But within those roles i think i would have to sign them on the like jelly. You're you're taking the you're taking. The i think it's crichton was the defenses witness for that and you're taking his word over the other police testimonies from the prosecution then by saying that it's a he was acting in accordance to.

"As a juror like first of all we do know that he's innocent till proven guilty. So he's innocent right now. Derek chauvin is legally technically innocent in every sense of the word right now. He has been sentenced he is innocent. He's an innocent man and so you as a juror. If you're gonna convict him of guilty of second-degree murder third grade mortar or secondary manslaughter. It has to be in your mind beyond the shadow of a doubt that he is responsible for the situation that caused the death of george floyd and then to what degree is responsible and then is there intent or not so is there intent or not actually go out. We don't need to consider intent. Actually i read. That's off the table. Yes so it would be Negligence was negligent or not. It's like was he was he was he performing his duties as he was trained to do in his legally allowed to do and was he. See the cause of the death of the two things as far as okay okay. So why. don't we just do those. Who like do you think. He was performing his duties as he was supposed to do. I got gotta say throughout the course of this trial like. It's a similar thing that i went through with tobin except there hasn't been the the blood oxygen saturation that is like maybe like look behind myself. Cross-eyed and like say like wait a second that guy just tried to pull a fast one on me. So i mean i remember before the trial started and i remembered seeing the images that looked like the exact same what you saw the video and the in police training manuals right and this is very disturbing to actually see and everything. But it's like well hold on if these guys are trained that way you could have a problem with the law. Yeah that's a whole different story. You have a problem with the training. Could probably the law. But if he didn't do anything wrong. Wrong based on the training and the law. Then that's a different story like he's still not guilty it. Just you got to repair that other stuff that you don't lie and there's that there's that big kind of like haymaker that got thrown around where it's like. He could have used a taser but chose not to. A taser is more likely to kill somebody than restraining them. So he technically chose the alaska forum of of doing he did yes. Yay based on that testimony initially chose the lesser form. So i mean there's doubt in my mind about like like i say. Did he do his job reasonably. I'm not sure. So because i'm not sure i mean i kind of have to side with their chauvin because just by logic you're like i can't send this guy. I can't say he's guilty. If i don't know..

"Know. It's he's not concerned with objective truth. He's not he's just concerned about putting himself in the strongest possible position so any ground loses from that position will still him in a good spot when it went all the when all the chips fall right. I don't know if that's right so to some extent. This is kind of reflective of what we saw so we initially. It's getting close to a year ago. Now we covered the ahmad arbery shooting and killa and and the public was enraged by this. This was the number one. Trending story everywhere. And then george. Floyd popped off and that kind of superseded it and i was never really sure why that was the one that totally caught fire because the ahmad aubrey one as it came out initially didn't watch our initial coverage we didn't have we weren't privy to the information that came out about One of the michael's dropping bombs and his dm's stuff like that we weren't privy to that and it seems like now that we are privy to that and the entire public at large became privy to that at the same time. Why did they shift their focus from ahmad arbery. Just when that was becoming a solid case to joy and why are they now shifting their focus just at the closing of this trial which like this is currently the prosecution is still the prosecution's case to lose if now so we laid out a couple of things most namely the blood. Oxygen saturation is tied together. Right in the closing from the defense. That's all this left. Is the closing arguments from both of them. If that's not tied together the prosecution in my book they win so why why why is the public's eye and know all these different things why are they now moving away just at the at the kind of the final drop on this roller coaster of the george floyd. They've been focused on for so long. I don't think. I don't think they're moving away. I think i think they're setting the stage for the possible outcomes. So if george floyd is convicted of murder and get say at twenty or forty or sentence. Clearly you know. The people who criticize black lives matter are going to be able to say.

"Did you notice the court member. I said there was kind of two trials going on. There's times where they cut the mikes and everyone in the court can hear and the jury's there they can hear everything that's going on but we can't it we can't. I know there was one time where that was happening. And it was just my feet. And i switched to a different broadcaster. Also okay. i'm not sure if i'm not sure if that was actually happening for specific broadcasters. That weren't spur. Some reason their audio fucked up. I don't know it might. There might have been situations where that happened and it was. Actually something was cut from the front of public. But i don't know. I wonder if there are any situations because again we talk about getting. Why broadcast a trial for transparency. Is it a good idea. Probably right but i wonder then when they decide to broadcast it if the judge just has like a kill switch where he's just like no not. This is not going out. You know like if seems like it seems like if he's worried about what's going to happen in the real world over the trial. It seems like he might want to have that. They're right a kill switch. Well just say like some people are talking about something. And he's like you. Just cut the mikes boom like like. This doesn't need to go certainly certainly with one hundred percents certainty. We can say that there is like another set of conversations that are having. They're having altogether when the cameras are completely off. And there are being saying like okay like you cannot bring this up in the courthouse. All you're not allowed to talk about this. There must be some sort of so what. Give me an example. What do you think those things might be. Well i mean we've already seen them hide information from the jury so why would not also makes sense to hide information from the public. That's that's eight. Hundred operating procedures for legal trial scoreboard. Like we didn't see all of the prep for this like they were sharing documents. We don't have access to all the discovery we don't have access to like when they're forming. Say the jury the jury is being picked and they there's times where they call people come up to the judge and they're just talking the judge in one or two people there's also times where like the defense will sit down with a witness privately and talk to them like we don't have access to that. There's lots of things that are that are not hypothetically. Maybe but what what. What would they not show to the public like. Give me an example. I don't know. I don't know maybe maybe like just. I'm being very vague. But like maybe something that they thought might inflame a riot or incite violence or something like what like. Give me one example Maybe maybe if Defense and the prosecution are fighting over something they want. Let in or something that can go in and and they think it might show kind of that like maybe from the perspective of the court. It's like a normal proceeding that happens but but from the perspective of the public. It's not educated. It might look like things are completely unfair or biased..

I think the chief of police at the time said okay. Well there's going to be due process. Was it the for a cam- whatever it is and then they're like no fuck you you're fired. We're not having that. It was the mayor that fire right. Yeah i'm just. I was asking you for these specific. It was the city manager fired for calling for due process in the dwayne right shooting. Yes so this is this is this made me. Think a lot more about that debate or that conversation we had about like what would you rather would you rather have. People learn to kind of like control themselves and make individual choices that benefit them or would you rather have a team of people on your side who are gonna go to fucking bad for you know matter how fucked up you are no matter what mistakes you made and always be there on your side and it's like well i mean if you're if you're the guy got shot you want the team if you're the if you're the who's getting in trouble you don't have a team you probably want to be making the best choices you could make. I think she wants a team right now. She probably wanted team but there is no team coming for her like she. She's not she doesn't have the luxury of team. Tony tampa had no team. Yeah george has got a big team. George floyd got a huge team is going relatively well for him. Considering the circumstances. I meant to say this. Actually i'd said twenty four million settlement for the family and in our previous episode. We had covered. I had given the given the right number. Which is twenty seven million. And it's funny. It seems like a small psycho. I said twenty four twenty seven man. That's a three million dollar different and it seems small but it's like three million dollars. It's more money than i've ever seen in my whole life. It's like it's more money than my house is worth and my parents house is worth and my sister's house is worth all put together. Yeah and they made a mention it again they. The the city made that payment settled that case the civil suit during halfway through the jury selection for the trial that we are talking about halfway through it so armee. So i mean you've got you've got the offense coming out. Their case was made. The strongest point. I think was fowler. Fowler is saying look you've got you've got five different medical experts. They can't agree on anything. They can't agree on what killed him. They can't agree on the time where the force became too forceful pau or excessive. You've got one guy who said it wasn't even excessive that he could've used a teaser. You you've there's no scientific evidence that these people seem to have about exactly what was done. That causes death. You've got a dose. That could be fatal. You've got an enlarge. This one i thought was like really strong. So george floyd a big and they said he had a large heart and they're like okay. Well what about isn't it..

"Oxygen saturation means that. This guy almost certainly didn't die of his fifth of fixation. I don't know but it seems. It seems very uncertain now after this kind of lukewarm defense testimony from witnesses and then this sudden and and now this kind of oh First of all like the judge was very strange acting very strange to let this this guy come through when he was like okay. Well you can say this but not that you can talk about this. But not that. And then they baited nelson nelson objected and he kind of had to object because if he didn't object then then they said the results and then objected and the judge could have been like a wedding. You object at the beginning like why you you know it's like it's very kind of fucking with the rules and i kind of feel like the judge is a very aware that there's two trials going on so if you notice like all of this stuff happened while the jury wasn't there because they were talking about like. Oh well are we gonna let the jury see this. Are we not. Are you pleading the fifth. Or you're not. Do i say this to the jury that it's okay to plead the fifth or not but everyone is seeing this on live. Tv so they're making judgments that are going to be based off different information than the jury is making judgments right. They should look an icon on the screen when the is in the room because sometimes yeah yeah. Yeah 'cause i was like trying to keep track of it and it couldn't go back and remember all the times i'm looking at things without the jury and then with the jury and then the judge is like okay. Well i'm gonna have to do this because otherwise you know there's gonna be riots and people are gonna be mad and blah blah blah. Like he is in a sense on trial by the public as well as well as an and everyone involved is all the lawyers. I've seen a ton of people. Already call the judge. White supremacist really. Why also also like you could see nelson kind of saying things like hey hey We went over this berry clearly. Derek like you remember like would you say that. I explain this to you clearly. And he's like like nelson's covering his ass in a lot of things saying like you like you understand. I didn't mislead you like you're not. I'm not trying to convince you one way or the other like this. Is your choice not me. This is used saying you want. He's talking about his right to take the fifth there to testify like because he doesn't wanna they don't want to a mistrial for any reason they don't want derek chauvin if it doesn't goes way to come back and be like well you know like my lawyer was telling me.

"That's that's a brave man and this guy said that it was a blood choke famously and that so so we had the experts saying that There was blood. Cut from george floyd brain due to derek chauvin kneeling on his neck. We had dr baker saying no. It was layman's terms. Heart attack we had a slew other witnesses saying no. It was his fixation suffocation due to jovan kneeling on him. Now tobin the star witness who's been pushing this nation theory who he's as it's an objective fact. He pinpoints the moment. That george floyd dies in the video and this guy. This guy is the guy on the prosecution and he is the same guy who comes out in this unnecessary or rebuttal rebuts some little nitpicking thing and says the blood oxygen saturation was ninety. Eight percent. mike. My question to you is how do you die from fixation when this is already testified in court that the blood saturate the blood. Oxygen saturation is the body's oxygen reserves. And we were doing some research before the show like how there must. We've got all the the greatest legal and medical minds looking at this case. The spotlight of the world is focused on this case. And how does it slip through the cracks that all these medical experts are testifying that this was certainly is fixation death when they know that the blood oxygen saturation is ninety eight percent. And i'm not saying. I might be missing something. Am i missing. I okay so. I look into this like i have. I have a bachelors and science I'm i didn't realize this. And i looked it up. We started talking. I m s friend of mine. Yeah we talked to multiple engineer. I talked to a nurse and yeah. There's there's a real question here. So i mean like it's really hard. It seems when somebody dies to pinpoint exactly what kills them. And so like it's got to be in this case one of three things. The brain stops working the lung. Stop working the heart stops working and in one of those things you know makes everything stop If it was you know drug related or stress related you might think it might be either the brain or heart. It could be the long to. I guess but if it was the lungs. It looks like you'd have this kind of depletion of oxygen. I which would then stop the brain and the heart from working the other organs on and that's my understanding of it so it's either it's either the lungs go first. Then there's no oxygen which causes the brain and the heart to fail or its heart goes i Which your body would still have all of the blood with all of the oxygen it. It's just not getting to the organs which causes you to die or something in the brain and the brain shuts off and you die immediately in which case you would also still have the blood oxygen in your blood oxygen. Saturation right. that's logically what makes sense to me. Maybe i'm wrong. Maybe that's not the correct correct. An achy name ask. I told me that it's possible to raise the oxygen level in the blood again when you do cpr. I mean do station. He said he'd never seen it. Go above ninety and he didn't think it was possible to get back up to ninety eight. He said it's possible to raise it..

That happens ahead of time. So that each side can prepare The defense or the prosecution necessary for that and the defense built their case and their witness built their case based on what was given to them and then so they did their testimony and then the prosecution is going to come out and say okay. You did your testimony but wait. Here's the thing we didn't give you that. You base your testimony on us not giving you this and you might. You might not know this. But i didn't notice before the prosecution actually eight in this case and they have a one hundred percent access to all the records and it's they decide what the give to the defense. If they wanna omit something me. can they be like. Oh i have this. I'm not giving it to the fence. i'm not. I can't bring it up later but i don't want them to see this because they run the the the lab where all tests are done so they did claim that they weren't given that part of the results by hennepin county and the doctor baker the guy who Who did the autopsy on. George floyd a. Here's another thing that i want say but doctor. Dr baker called them after he watched dr fowler's testimony and say no way way we got those days. We had those this Now here's one of the things that i also wanted to say about the trial though is that there's a very curious mismatch or very curious dichotomy in the two types of witnesses that were watching. There's one type where it's there hang by every word they're very invested in the case they're watching it on television like dr tobin the prosecution's witness like dr baker the prosecution's witness we already established in a previous episode that dr baker wants a moon base and he wants a slave population of people who don't use the term her story and instead say history. That's that's that's what he wants a this guy. This guy is like hanging hanging by every word of the trial and dr fowler says government carbon monoxide poisoning. He's calling up the prosecution team. And saying look we got this doctor fowler on the defense side when this guy is being asked questions and nelson asks them. Did you get a chance to see. Tobin's testimonies like i saw a bit of it. And this guy is gets on a plane right after he leaves office. These people were there like right beside the like the fire station.

"We should provide some context to one of these revelations that was just about to bring up. So dr fowler was the defense's star witness. I would say would you say yeah. I mean he's basically the only witness no i mean. They had the police training expert. They had the police training guy and they had the the girl that was in the back of the car. Yeah tried to get. The drug dealer friend wouldn't justify he pled the fifth. As far as medical is concerned it was dr fowler and one of the things that provides. We don't need so much context for with with dr fowler. I was very underwhelmed with the defense's case. I thought eric nelson if i mean. Check out our last episode. Our last episode. We go deep day by day into the trial. We have great analysis. And i did expect that the defense would have a better better turn than they did now. Dr fowler was unimpressive to me because he was just one voice whereas the prosecution had a they had a. I think it was something. Like twenty two witnesses versus the defenses seven that they went over in two or three days. The defense now. Dr fowler was the one medical witness thought. This was ridiculously underwhelming compared to the prosecution but i was really listening last night and i realized that dr fowler actually in some respects representing a panel of thirteen or fourteen people this is the forensic panel that he's representing including toxicologists pathologists. Which i believe he is trained pathologist. So it's a lot more impressive when you consider it that way. There's these peer reviewed basically he's providing. He's representing forensic panel peer review. When he's speaking to the jury yeah. I also if you remember on saturday. We went through like pages and pages and pages of people that they could call. Yes i was expecting more. Yes on review. I think it might have been the best move to just do like this one. Focus on this one guy who tries to debunk. All their science. Poke as many holes as possible. And then you know show the drug dealers wanna talk your claimed pleases the fifth. And and then you're like kay guys look. I made it clear case it's simple.
