A highlight from Week in Review - Episode 25
"Time for the Mike Gallagher Show week in review podcast. We're glad you could join us. Boy, what a week it was. The debate, the craziness, the New York City judge trying to crush the Trump organization, keeping Trump from ever conducting business in New York ever again. Number of media outlets conducted polls. The results don't look really good for President Biden. Even the media outlets could hardly believe their own results. Washington Post ABC poll came out over the weekend. Has Trump beating Biden by 10 points? 52 to 42 percent among registered voters in a hypothetical 2024 national matchup. Now, the Washington Post says, oh, this poll is an outlier. Well, the truth is there's no national election. What matters are the other swing states. We know that we understand that the NBC poll has Trump and Biden tied. I think what's important to remember is almost no national poll has Trump getting significantly beat by Joe Biden. Are they all lying? Are they all making it up? Is it all are they all outliers? And make no mistake, they are melting down, man. They are freaking out over this poll. Here's ABC's. And you know, it's tough because you got both the Washington Post and ABC, these two huge legacy media outlets having to distance themselves in a way from their own poll. Here's ABC's Rick Klein talking to Martha Raddatz over the weekend about the staggering bad news for Joe Biden in this poll. Martha, these numbers are simply staggering for the sitting president. 44 percent of people in this poll say they are not as well off as they were at the start of the Biden administration two and a half years ago. Those are the worst numbers that we've seen in our ABC News Washington Post polling. It's a question we've been asking going back to the Reagan administration. And when you when you dive into the big questions around the economy, we know President Biden has been out there trying to make the case. Unemployment is low. He's been talking about how inflation has been easing, but people aren't buying it. You covered some of the reasons why. Gas prices, food prices, grocery prices and like right now on the big picture on the economy, 74 percent of the country, that's about three quarters of Americans who say the economy is either not so good or downright poor. Now, of all the things I get angry about, the illegal immigration crisis that we have in America right now is infuriating because this is a crisis of the Democrats making and they have the gall. They've got the nerve. They have the audacity to pretend it's not their fault. When you screech about open borders, when you brag about being a sanctuary city and suddenly we face a crisis of thousands and thousands and thousands of illegals entering this country.

A highlight from The First Edition of Would You Let Joe Biden"
"Good morning America. Good Monday. Some of you are getting up and getting out the door. I'm glad I am with you. I'm Hugh Hewitt in Studio North going down to the Beltway this week. Oh, back to the Beltway. Gotta go do my work. Gotta go do my job. I want you to begin this segment with me by reflecting on how bad can the polls actually get for one person. Because John Ellis, now you've heard me mention John. John has been on the show before. Ellis on items the site formerly known as Twitter, now known as X, he produces two sub stacks. News items, which I read every morning before I go on the air. That's where I learned about Amazon investing in AI this morning. And political items, which is a second sub stack. And that just collects all the political data. And for years and years and years, John Ellis was the man behind the curtain at News Corp. And he ran the decision desk when it actually ran well. And he ran many, many other things at News Corp. And he's a very, very smart guy. So Ellis puts out these two news sub stacks that I read. And one of them, political items, carries with it the additional benefit of sparing me from having to figure out which polls to read. Because every couple of weeks or three weeks, he puts out the polls in one place. So John Ellis knows polling. He knows which ones are trash. He does not send you the trash one. So I ignore all polls until I see a poll show up in the news items or political items. So polls in one place rolled in on Saturday morning. And I don't want to get sued for copyright. You should subscribe to polls in one place and political items. But John summarized three of these. Number one, NBC News. Three quarters of voters say they're concerned about President Joe Biden's age and mental fitness. Three quarters. Three quarters. Number two, Washington Post ABC News. A Washington Post ABC News poll finds President Biden struggling to gain approval from a skeptical public. With dissatisfaction growing over his handling of the economy and immigration, a rising share saying the United States is doing too much to aid Ukraine in its war with Russia, and broad concerns about his age as he seeks a second term. More than three in five Democrats say they would prefer a nominee other than Biden. And the Post ABC poll shows Joe Biden trailing Donald Trump by 10 points. Then number three, the New York Times. President Biden is underperforming among nonwhite voters in the New York Times Santa College national polls over the last year. And this result marked a — represent a, quote, marked deterioration in Mr. Biden's support among non -Anglo voters. Those are the three big polls of the weekend, and they're all related to Joe Biden's age. So I've asked Generalissimo to assist me in diagnosing the problem here.

A highlight from John Zmirak
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas Show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me, so I'm telling you, don't be fooled. The real Eric's in jail. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the program. I am Eric Metaxas Show. If you're watching this by video, you can see that I'm in Miami. Actually, no, you can't see that. You can just see that I'm in a hotel room. I'm telling you, I'm in Miami. I'm speaking tonight at the Rusty Pelican. It's oversold. It's sold out. I don't know if people just show up what's gonna happen, but in any event, all the information is on my website, ericmetaxas .com. Today's show is gonna be really different because this morning, I woke up, and on Twitter, I saw Tucker Carlson's interview with a man named Larry Sinclair. It is so astonishing that I said, we are gonna change our programming for the day. I was planning to talk to John Smirack and to Larry Taunton, who are friends and who are regulars on the program, about other things. But then I said, no, this is as big a news story as it gets. It's breaking news, and so I'll tell you now the gist of it, and then I will talk to John Smirack first and then to Larry Taunton about what we're to make of this. So Chris Himes, since you're here, and you're not familiar with what we're talking about, so you can, as I tell you this, I'm telling my audience this because most people who are listening maybe don't know about this. Not everybody's a news fan. And this was aired last night. I didn't see this last night. I just happened to see it early this morning. But here's the bottom line. Tucker Carlson mentioned a few days ago that there were credible reports, like totally credible reports that a guy named Larry Sinclair had come out in 2008 when Barack Obama first began to run for the presidency. And Larry Sinclair said that nine years earlier, he had smoked crack and had sexual relations with Barack Obama more than once. And he couldn't believe that this man was running for president and talking about being a family man and on and on and on. And he said he should come clean on all this stuff. And so he was demonized and no one would cover this. In other words, this is one of these classic cases. And this is what I wanna talk to John Smirack and to Larry Taunton about because the interview that Tucker did with him yesterday, I guess, it aired last night and I watched it this morning, there's no doubt that this is true. In other words, you can quibble about the details, but what Larry Sinclair goes into is he basically says, I mean, he comes clean on his whole life and his lifestyle and so on and so forth, but he makes it clear that in the follow -up to this, that when he decides to go public with this, folks from the Obama campaign get in touch with him, obviously to crush this story, to say that we can't, we're gonna do everything we can to keep this out of the press because we know that Barack Obama will not be elected if any of this gets out. So they completely crushed it and crushed Larry Sinclair's ability to get this information out. And in the course of that, Larry was Sinclair in touch with somebody who was working with the Obama campaign, this was the openly gay choir director at Jeremiah Wright's church, and that he indicated that he had himself had relations with Barack Obama and it goes on and on from there. And for me, the question is always, what's the news here? What's the news? Because we live in a country now where you say, people can do what they want, but fascinates what me is how the media demonized this guy, would not cover this, was told by the Obama campaign, if you mention this, not only will you be denied access to the campaign of Barack Obama, which you want, but your whole organization, whether it's ABC News or whatever, will be denied access. So this is really, really ugly stuff. And so journalists did not cover what would have been, I mean, it's absolutely mind blowing when you watch the Tucker interview, you can judge for yourself, like, is this guy making this up? The details are just endless detail and with corroboration. And so I just was so amazed that this guy is now telling this story, now he has the opportunity to tell the story because we have free speech as far as Twitter goes or X, we have journalists like Tucker Carlson who are no longer under the Fox network where they can only report on what they're told that they can report on. So it just struck me as absolutely astonishing news. And so I wanna talk to Larry Taunton about it in hour two, I wanna talk to John Smirack about it in hour one. Chris, am I forgetting anything before we go to John Smirack? No, I don't know. What's your response? Well, I was just gonna say - What's the make of this? I don't know, I mean, I don't know at this date and time what sort of ramifications it has, what significance it'll, I just don't know, it seems like, where do things go from here is my question. Well, okay, and my answer to that is it just shows a really, really sick double standard that we no longer have journalists in America. In other words, Donald Trump, anything bad that he did, they jumped on it and magnified it times a million. Anything bad that Bill Clinton did, that Barack Obama did, the Barack Obama stuff, it's unbelievable when you hear the details that why doesn't every American know about this? Why doesn't every American know that he was a crack smoking bisexual actively during his marriage? I mean, it's one of those things that if you know it, you can process it, you can forgive it, but if you never hear about it, that's not healthy in the 21st century when every detail of everybody's lives is put forth as though the media is interested in telling the truth, except you find out that in 2008, they were interested in making sure that no one caught a whiff of any of this. And so I think for me, it just talks about, it speaks to this idea that we've all been lied to so thoroughly that it's just a wake up call for every American to say we've been lied to by people we trusted. We trusted journalists basically to cover stuff basically, maybe not exactly as we would want, but basically that they would give us the facts, but when they don't like somebody, they will crush them, they will make stuff up or they will take tiny details and magnify them and you will never hear the end of it, what Donald Trump said 11 years before he ran for president to somebody on a hot mic, they will act like he said that five minutes ago and it's the most important thing in the world. And that's all you'll hear. And when you have stuff like this coming up about Barack Obama from a few years before he was running for president, not one word. And I think it's a scandal, but it's a scandal of journalism more than it's a scandal of Barack Obama. It's an American scandal. And I think we need to talk about it. Anyway, Johnson America will be here in a minute to help us process this, but it's so sick. When you hear the details, you've got to watch it. It's just unbelievable.
A highlight from 1239. Bitcoin ETF Approved By October? Bloomberg Intelligence INTERVIEW
"All right, so today we're going to dive into some interesting stuff. I think you guys are going to like it. It'll be breaking down some of the ETF news that, of course, we heard last week and, of course, some of the interesting aspects around what was going on with BlackRock. We'll break all that down today. I think you guys are going to love it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. Joining me today is Eric Balshunis, who is a senior ETF analyst over at Bloomberg Intelligence. Great to have you on the show. Great to be here. Thank you. Hey, Eric. So a couple of things I wanted to kind of touch on. Obviously, some of the things that everybody was looking at last week was, of course, the delays. The letters started coming in on Friday. We saw all that happening. There was a little bit of a slowness of the BlackRock news. Just your opinion. Why do you feel like that was happening in the way that it was happening? Yeah. I don't understand because BlackRock was up after some other people, or before them, rather. And so it didn't appear as though the delays were chronologically rate -based. It didn't appear as though the delays were based on size. There was no rhyme or reason. It seemed random. And BlackRock came a little later. And the weird thing is, on the site where they consolidate all of them, BlackRock was never added. Yet, on a different place, they did delay BlackRock. So I've long equated what I'm doing here to Jim Garrison, played by Kevin Costner in the movie JFK. There's all these things that could be something, like did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? And in the movie, he uncovers all this, some legit, some not legit, circumstantial evidence that there was multiple shooters and a conspiracy. So this reminds me of one of those things that probably means nothing in terms of that. That said, just the fact that BlackRock filed is big, and that does mean something. And obviously we can get into that, but certainly BlackRock getting delayed and Fidelity, it shows that they just delayed them all. For a minute there, there was a thought that would delay some of the smaller ones and just approve BlackRock and or Fidelity. But again, we had thought all along this was going to be delayed, because this lawsuit happened like two days before. So it was not a surprise. If they're going to put them out, I think they need more time to work with the issuers and develop some kind of a game plan and make sure all of the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted. So that would not happen in two days. So no biggie. All right. So you mentioned, obviously, the fact that BlackRock is filing in the first place. That's really the huge news here. When you look at BlackRock's position of filing, along with other major proponents, we'll just use there Fidelity as well. And you look at the likelihood with this, obviously, they have a very low ratio of losses when it comes to our non -confirmed ETFs that they've filed. What would make, first of all, what would make BlackRock to have this much confidence to go ahead in this market, the way that this market has been evolving with Chair Gensler and everything that's been happening with the SEC, it's not, it doesn't feel like it's a slam dunk. Why would BlackRock go out on a limb? Yeah. So we have a couple of theories. The best, I mean, BlackRock is a publicly traded company. They're looking to make money. Larry Fink has to appeal to his board that he's doing new things. And it does feel like BlackRock was full on into ESG. That kind of has died a bit. And it seems like this might be taking its place in terms of something BlackRock can do to grow its business, because you cannot make money battling Vanguard in terms of selling like cheap beta ETFs, because even at three basis points on $100 billion, it's not a ton of money and it's not a high growth area. It's growth for assets, but not necessarily for revenue. So we think they're obviously motivated by having a new area they can launch in. Vanguard will probably never launch a Bitcoin ETF, so they're worried about Vanguard there. They could charge a decent fee and they can make it have a new revenue stream. So I think that's largely their motivation. I also think Larry Fink, in my opinion, has heard some back channel that he thinks the U .S. is losing the sort of global battle to be a leader in the crypto space. And I think that frustrates him to a degree. So I think those are two reasons. Back to the revenue, though, think about this gold ETF GLD was launched in 2004, I believe. To this day, it's still the third highest revenue generating ETF, even though there's many cheaper ones. And the reason is, if you could be the big one that has all the liquidity or a lot of it, that gives you pricing power. You don't ever really need to lower your fee because there's just so many investors who just prize liquidity above all else. So we think BlackRock thinks they have a shot to be the one, the GLD of Bitcoin, and that that's going to be a nice little business for them. And we were talking, if it had the same assets as GLD, it would be, again, top five revenue generating ETF. GBTC, by the way, which isn't even an ETF, if it were, it would make the same money as GLD. So like two, GLD and GBTC are in the top five if you ranked all ETFs by revenue. And so I just think that's their primary motivation. I think they also like, what they tell you publicly is they're in the business of sort of democratizing investing and bringing down frictional costs. And I do believe they believe that and they would do that in this case. That said, I think revenue is definitely a motivator. Yeah, for sure. OK, so a couple of things you mentioned there. One, of course, is Larry Fink's position around ESG. He has been a very strong proponent of sustainable governance throughout the last few years. You know, in his letter to his investors over the past couple of years, that's been a big part of it. Now you move into Bitcoin. Bitcoin often accused as one of the most non -friendly carbon neutral tokens and projects out there. But yet at the same time, you have BlackRock potentially on the lead position here for an ETF. How do they balance that out? I get it that they've kind of backed off the ESG message. But how do you balance that out to the investors? Look, I mean, I'm just going to be frank. A lot of ESG, if you get too moralizing when it comes to ESG, it's tough because guaranteed you do something that makes you a hypocrite. It's just the way it is. So I think they backed off a little. And ESG ETFs haven't really sold that great. Even BlackRock took money out of its own ESG ETF from its models. Let's just face it. All this evidence is pretty strong that the term ESG is under pressure and ESG investing, I think, is also going to face some headwinds for like, what are we really doing here? How does it actually impact anything? It just, you know, I've seen this happen. This trend gets a little ahead of its skis. The media love this story. They really hyped up ESG. It's going to save the world. The millennials are into it. And then, boom, it started underperforming and it got political. And so reality set in and it's now going to be probably relegated to a very niche status in the ETF world. One to two percent market cap of the total. I mean, I look at it just in the sense of, hey, it's a capitalist market. Capitalists are going to do things that capitalists do, and that is find where the market flows. And this is obviously what's happening right now. A couple of things you had mentioned around the potential of this ETF going through. I know your percentage right now with you and James has been climbing. Have you changed your position since last Friday before the holiday in terms of percentage of approval? No. Seventy -five percent factored in the delay on Friday. We assumed that. We'd be shocked if they approved them. That said, we went from 65 percent to 75 after Grayscale. And the reason for that is in our 65 percent, we had a 70 percent chance likelihood that Grayscale would win based on our senior legal analyst. So the fact that they won gave us a little extra juice. The other thing is it was three to oh in terms of how that lawsuit was, the ruling came down. Two of the judges came from Democrats. That's really important because there are political workings here. Gensler has a Democratic boss. He is a Democrat. And if enough Democrats start to just move over on this issue and shift to the middle or to the crypto side, it makes Gensler's position more politically untenable by the minute. And so he could keep moving the goalposts legally, I think, as long as he wants. But it's going to begin to look more and more desperate and he's going to face more backlash. And this is a big deal for us. So we thought it was the decisiveness of the ruling, the language, like everything you said has to go out the window. Your whole reason for denial is vacated. And the fact that two Democrats signed on to that, huge. Then the second part was the media attention. Once every six or seven years, do I see ABC News or CNN have an ETF in the headline? I know this because ETFs are in their own little underground. Every now and then, though, something big happens. And ETFs were all over mainstream news. New York Times, ABC, Washington Post. This also matters because the headlines were like, SEC loses, paves way for spot Bitcoin ETFs. Well, now people are just sort of thinking this is going to happen because the New York Times said it and people on Capitol Hill read this. They don't necessarily read crypto trade publications. mainstreamness So the of the media attention and how they were presenting it also made us think that the pressure would increase. And our senior litigation analyst looked at the legal side and determined the SEC has very little wiggle room. That was his words. So when you add the PR aspect to the legal aspect, that's where we upped it a little bit to 75%. That still leaves 25 % for this theory, which is that Gensler being potentially a stubborn guy and or just truly, truly not feeling this should ever happen, even though, again, the stuff that's come out is way more dangerous, 2x Bitcoin futures, come on. Anyway, what he might do is he might lock into some other reason, like custody. I don't know what the custody is safe, then he might start to look at how custody could delay these further. And he may make that the next denial. Like I said, it's going to look more and more desperate every time they latch on to a new issue, but it's possible. And that's why we leave the 25 % opening for that. I want to jump over and onto the Grayscale side of things. From an analyst position, and you look at Grayscale's current scenario playing out, obviously there's a little bit of lead time here. Maybe they do some changes in the way they submit a spot ETF. What is in the future of Grayscale's potential of getting into the ETF game? So Grayscale is going to be tricky. We have this phrase that Grayscale may win the case and lose the race. I'll make some of those things rhyme if you're a headline writer. But anyway, Grayscale is a private placement trust that was just for accredited investors. We've never seen anything like that just, boom, become an ETF. We've seen mutual funds convert to ETFs. I think one closed -end fund converted to ETF, separate accounts, but I guess it's possible. It's just unprecedented. And given you just embarrassed the SEC, it's possible the SEC says, let's make you refile and get in the back of the line, and we'll prove all the other ones first. So this has been somewhat of our theory all along in why BlackRock filed. BlackRock saw a scenario where, I doubt the SEC told them this. That would be a little, I think that's illegal, but let's just say BlackRock thought of this whole scenario, which is, you could see this is a pretty viable thesis. Hey, let's file, because if the SEC loses to Grayscale, you know they're going to be pissed off at Grayscale pursuing them and embarrassing them. And maybe if we're sitting there waiting, just, oh, hey, by the way, SEC, if you want to use us and our new surveillance sharing agreement that we put in here, which is kind of novel, as an excuse as to like why you never approved Grayscale, and you can make them wait, and you can leave this whole thing with the adults in the room of BlackRock, right, you know we're not going to mess this up. I could see that appealing to the SEC, and I could see BlackRock seeing how that would appeal to the SEC. So you get to save face and kind of enact a little revenge on Grayscale in the process. Now, possibly Grayscale could sue them again for that, I don't know. But I see how that would possibly be one of the reasons BlackRock thought they had a route to approval first. Interesting. Well, I think in that kind of scenario, I mean, it makes sense in the essence of this being such a political landscape as it is right now, because you're right, it's all really kind of a card game right now, especially around the issue of ETFs. I want to get into the potential of the impact on the market. And I remember in a podcast you had mentioned potential here around $20 billion in the first couple of months, $150 billion in the first year or two. When you look at that market, do you feel like that is where this, this I'm assuming with BlackRock leading the way as kind of the premier ETF? Yeah, if you have a BlackRock ETF, okay, that's prime time. I mean, we have a saying on the team that BlackRock and Vanguard ETFs are the new IBM. And what I mean by that is if you're a 65 year old financial advisor and you were a broker 30 years ago, it used to be said, you could never get fired for buying IBM. It's just, it's just too good. It's like all American company. No, none of your clients are going to be like, what did you get me into? Now it's, you can't get fired for buying a BlackRock or Vanguard ETF. It's just, it's too good a deal. It's just too bulletproof. Whereas if you went into some crazy hedge fund and stuff, they make it mad, right? But BlackRock and Vanguard ETFs, solid. So once you put it into a BlackRock ETF, it sort of goes into this, it elevates it, I think, for the financial advisors who are like maybe willing to use as a hedge or an alternative, or they have younger, you know, their, their clients' kids are into it. And they're like, ah, now, now I feel comfortable, safe and willing to do this because I use ETFs in the rest of my portfolio. I trust BlackRock. I certainly don't want to custody it myself. They're going to do it. I feel safe with them. The fee's not that bad. It costs one basis point to trade, to trade. I think that's very powerful. And so when I come up with the 150 billion, here's the math, right? One is that's about how much gold ETFs have. Two is if you take advisors and wealth managers, they have $30 trillion that they run for the rich boomers of America, basically. If only 0 .5 % of that comes over, that is 150 billion. So that's, I think, pretty fair because I think you have some advisors who might allocate 2%, but then some that just find it to be repelling and do nothing. So I think 0 .5 to me seems like a pretty fair number. Even it could be low. That's how I get to the 150 billion over time. And gold is about there. So GBTC has 20 billion. So I think you could, let's just say that moves over instantly. That's where I get to the 28 billion pretty soon because either the people move or it just converts over. And then you get BlackRock Fidelity, you're adding to that. And I think also they'll steal some business from the exchanges, frankly. I think if you're in a crypto exchange and you're charging 30 to 150 basis points per trade, this ETF trading on NYSE at one basis point is going to be appealing. So I also think institutions could get into it, especially the one that becomes very liquid because I wrote a book called The Institutional ETF Toolbox. And institutions don't need ETFs generally. They can get everything on their own in separate accounts for almost cheaper than ETF. And they like it private. They feel like ETF is kind of like the dirty public pool down the street. That said, what the ETF does have is even an institution can't resist this liquidity. And it's also anonymity. So if an institution wants to get short or long crypto quickly, it would use this most liquid Bitcoin ETF as a way to put that trade on. We see that happen with GLD all the time. If you look at GLD or SPY, these are things that institutions can get. But the liquidity in them is great because they can go in there with no contracts, anonymous. They don't move the market and they can just get that into their portfolio quickly. So the most liquid spot Bitcoin ETF, I think, will even draw big fish in. So you add a lot of that together and I think you're looking at that much money. Now, let's say there's another FTX that could delay some of this. But I was pretty impressed at how quickly Bitcoin, how resilient Bitcoin was to FTX. It was in the gutter both PR and price wise for a little bit, but not that long. Like I said, Bitcoin, even though I don't understand every aspect of it, I respect its resiliency. It just keeps coming back. Yeah, it's one of those that has made its way finally into the mainstream. Now, I think a lot of this has been legitimized with companies like BlackRock obviously getting involved. But to your point, before we go on to other ideas around this, because there are other components key here that might make sense for how successful BlackRock might be. I wanted to go to James Saffert's post here, one of your colleagues there. Some of the key dates that, let me zoom in on that, you're going to look at a couple of dates here. You've got iShares coming in on 10 .17. There's quite a few coming up right here in the middle of October and even early October with GlobalX. They've got a refiling, I think, coming in. Anyway, when do you think the next potential timing would be for a lot of these potential ETFs to maybe get a green light, if there was a window here? Yeah, so I've got to be honest, I like October because, I don't know, first of all, it gives the SEC two months to work this out, roughly. October is when the Bitcoin futures ETF launched. We're also going to have a whole slew of Ether futures ETFs in October. As you get closer to Christmas, I think maybe the odds go down a little because the holidays hit. October is just a very vibrant month in general, and you've got a slew of deadlines coming up in October. But I sometimes put the deadlines aside and I think that, because if we're going strictly on deadlines, and they want to punt, punt, punt, the first deadline is ARK in January, final deadline where they have to approve or deny. And I don't know if they want to put ARK out first, and that'd be two months ahead of anybody else. They'd be playing Kingmaker. And I think after Bitto, they let Bitto out first like a week before Valkyrie, and Bitto has 95 % of all the volume assets. So I don't think they want to play Kingmaker here. So my guess is they're going to scrap the timeline and we're going to wake up one day and hear probably going to be a scoop or from Coindesk Wall Street Journal or something, or Bloomberg hopefully, that the SEC has decided to say okay to these and they're going to work it out. They'll launch in two weeks. That's my gut. I just don't know if they punt in October and they keep punting and they get to January and they actually deny ARK. I don't know. That makes it feel like just every other denial that's ever existed. So I don't know. I'm leaning towards we're just going to wake up one morning and we're good. I could be wrong. How does this play out, Eric? If that were the case, let's go the absolute negative side of this and they do punt and they finally go to the deadline. They don't push out ARK. They basically do a denial. What does that look like on BlackRock's record? Does BlackRock even worry about that at all or are they like, hey, this is getting out of hand here? You mean if BlackRock's denied in October again? No. I mean, look, what can they do? There's not a ton they can do. Well, if they approve others and let BlackRock, that would upset them, I think. But as long as they're in the group, their main goal is to be outburst. I think their goal is to be one of the ones launched on day one. So as long as that happens, whether it's in October or frankly next year, I'm sure they're fine with that. Now, I think the longer you wait, the longer you get into the situation of what I think also bothers Larry Fink, which is the US is behind the rest of the world in this big time. They've got spot Bitcoin ETFs all over the world and they work fine and they have less liquidity from big time market makers like we have here. So if they can work well during overseas a period like FTX and the percent premiums are pretty tight, they're going to work here. And this is why ETFs are so good. They allow arbitrage. And so I think by releasing the ETF in the US sooner rather than later, it just makes a lot of sense in terms of that race with the rest of the world. But again, Genzer clearly is tough. But the last SEC guy is Jay Clayton. And he said on CNBC after the Grayscale ruling that they have to approve them. It's inevitable. JP Morgan, my colleagues in the sell side, who I'll just say this. I feel we stick our necks out a little more and we're trying to be progressive. JP Morgan now finally after Grayscale says, yeah, they're probably going to approve them like, well, OK, well, welcome to the club. We've been here for a little while. Yeah. Very conservative position. Yeah. And Bernstein said the same thing. But again, as you get these bigger banks actually coming out, again, the narrative then becomes the SEC is approving them. And so, again, it's almost like a self -fulfilling prophecy at some point, especially, again, as you see headlines in The New York Times, it paves way, paves way.
Crazy Libs Publish Op-Eds Over 14th Amendment Following Lawsuit
"I warned you that they're not going to stop. The next evolution is starting now. Did you see there was a lawsuit filed this weekend by this attorney Lawrence Kaplan filed a lawsuit to keep Trump off the 2024 ballot? Citing, no way. The 14th amendment. Dan, I'm a P1, listen to your show. I'm here all the time. You told us a few months ago that was going to happen. It wasn't just me, it was others too. Why? Because Democrats are freaking crazy. And now it's all started. All of a sudden this weekend, all of these op -eds and social media influencers on the left started talking about the insurrection clause. I believe it's section three of the 14th amendment U .S. Constitution saying you're barred from elected office unless if you participated insurrection or rebellion. And almost as if the whole thing was coordinated because it is, all of a sudden this weekend, all of the 14th amendment talk starts creeping up. And look at that right after the lawsuit files. This is so convenient. ABC News, just amazing the timing. Here's an op -ed, 14th amendment section three, a new legal battle Trump against takes shape. These people are nuts. I've never seen any human being obsess over another human being like the left does over Trump. I've never seen anything like it. You know you're crazy if you're a lib listening to this show.

Latest Poll Sees Trump Defeating Both Biden & DeSantis
"But the drudge report alert came out and it was the shock poll Washington Post ABC News poll. This just cracks me up. The never trumpers don't know what to do. They really don't, because they all watch ABC News and read The Washington Post. And they don't know whether to wind their, what's the phrase they don't know whether to scratch their fanny or wine their watch? They don't know whether to wind their fannies and scratch their watch. They don't know which end is up. This poll, the shock pole shows Trump today crushing Biden and crushing desantis. That's the part that was kind of lost from all the breathless headlines. Trump beats the santas in a hypothetical matchup, I mean, excuse me, Trump beats Biden in a hypothetical matchup by 7 points. Desantis beats Biden by the same margin, 7 points. I think for Trump it's like 49 to 42% and for desantis, I think it's 48 to 41%. I know it's both 7%. There's 7 points, right? But head to head with Trump. Trump crushes Ron DeSantis.
