Our Country Deserves a Moralistic Standard
"I honestly believe in our country we should have a standard. I don't think that, you know, you should be mad at somebody if they want to identify with a certain way and be gay or whatever. But I do think that there should be things put in place to keep a moralistic standard, which means that marriage is between a man and woman and that's it. If you want to have some type of government, recognition, then you can call it a civil union with benefits and all other stuff that come with what they call government sanctioned marriages or government related marriages. You could do that, but just don't call it marriage. Because then when you call it marriage, then you start encroaching on all kinds of other things that are morally inconsistent. I believe with the foundation of this country. And the same thing with like trans and stuff. Okay, you can be trans, but you have to be an adult. It is against the law, the transition your kids outside of the age of 18. That's what I think should happen. Give them kids a chance to grow up, give them a chance to figure out what they're doing in life. It's a young girl, jazzy, what's her name, Jennings? Jazzy Jennings I made a video about her, her mama. The other day. It got almost a million views. This young girl, they transitioned her at four years old. And this is my biggest problem, and I feel like people are probably mad at Uganda and some of these African nations for Bannon and stuff because I think they see the writing on the wall and they're fearful of their society being taken over like ours have been in some of these cases. They transition this year at four years old.

"Top top level. You can't score 91 goals in a calendar year if you're not the good is impossible and you add 45 assists or something like that as well. This is just the numbers are mind-blowing. The trophies are mind-blowing. The way he plays his mind-blowing, the dribbling is my blowing, everything and to still do it at 35. It's incredible, so you might perform hard enough with the edge day out in the personality that you had that is very different to messes. You might prefer Pelé because Pelé, I think invented a lot of the technical skills that we see a lot of players do now, including Leo, but overall, I think they're just no greater than no missing. Yeah, and you haven't given us an unbelievable yet when describing messy. It's just unbelievable to see the upper body of this jewels. There it is. Don't ask me that question again. Okay, all right. We'll move on from Messi. That's my boy. Can you attitude on Christmas? What's interesting is that you make quite a sweeping statement a couple of days ago when we were talking about the World Cup. You were like, it was the best ever. But why? I think that there were a lot of aspects to it. First of all, I thought the football was incredible. And the final was certainly the charity top of that cake. And kind of summed up everything, everything about the tournament. From Morocco's deep run and how it captured the imagination of everybody there in Doha, the Arab nations, the African nations, again, even going into the final and the discussions around history being made. Within a messy or will it be France repeating? Killing Mbappé, scoring a hat trick and the final and a losing effort. So much of it. And then even as you go back to the group season, we have these discussions on the final day of all the group siege. That was crazy. I think the German group I can't remember who was this Germany. Japan. On that final D at any different times during the 19 minutes, all four teams could have gone through to knuckle. I mean, and then you were sitting there calling yellow cards and that kind of drama. I don't recall that kind of drama, even a group siege in a World Cup tournament. We know you have the VCR of 1982 world. Which you've lost. What would you play it on? No, I don't want to play it. I just wanted to have it. All right, okay. Supposed to watch as a kid all the time. Does it surpass that? I thought, no, I can't remember. I just enjoyed that as a kid because it was Socrates and Maradona as a youngster. Being sent off in the Argentina Brazil game, which Brazil won three two, the parties storm Schumacher challenge, which was a disgrace, Franz and bossy Smith. There was so many great celebration. I'm not saying that was the greatest World Cup because we also had, I believe that was the World Cup. We had West Germany, Algeria, plan out, you're not planning out a bit of a grown envelope brigade. Yeah, let's just make sure we're both going through. But that's just what I remember. I enjoyed this World Cup. With all the say story about where it was and the problems within the country and that area, I enjoyed the football. I enjoyed the excitement of it as Shaka mentioned. There was a cutlet damp squibs here and there, but as a generalization, it was the kind of tournament where you go, or why would we want to change this? But we're freefall. So we're going to change that again. We're already going to predo that. And we're going to change anyway. And it was steering you in the face that actually this was pretty good. Shaq had mentioned all side almost at the group stages where that last round of matches where traditionally, you know, they're dead rubbers. It's about who's going to finish first and second. There's going to be so much at stake for every game. Yeah, I think this World Cup was fantastic. I'm a bit older than you guys, so I remember the World Cup final of 74. That's my first real collection of a football game. I remember you on Christ and all that kind of stuff. But I would Craig with 82 was great. 78 was good with Mario campus and the Buenos Aires World Cup. But what I liked at this World Cup, there was I like the passion I like the passion of all the teams. I liked that the teams who were not passionate, they were punished and sent home. They, for example, Germany. I like that. I like that we had a revival of the striker. I mean, symbolize with vent horse when he came on against Argentina. Even Messi came out of his shell and kind of criticizing their course while he was doing an interview. And I also like that all that the team who should never play the ball out from the back and got punished straight away. I love that. And this was a World Cup like you guys were saying. I've never seen all games set a World Cup before this time I did. I saw every game. And there was no game well, there was a game that were more boring than others, but it was no good game that didn't give me anything. It was all games giving me some things. I must check that was saying, when we start counting yellow cards and we had to call around to find out if they're going to be a draw without a bit of bath for more infantino or where will they do it? Who will do it? It was unbelievable. Unbelievable. It's working for Austrian TV because there's no Austrians available. Yes, yes, that's true. That's the Austria. They're beautiful. There we go.

Setting the Stage for a World on the Brink of War
"The stage worldwide. Worldwide, we have Iran, North Korea, we have China. We have Russia. We have the terrorist groups in the Middle East. We have war constantly in Ethiopia. Some of the African nations, we have a war in Ukraine right now with Russia, a lot is unsettled on the world stage. And a lot for probably one of the first time since World War II, we're seeing this on sadness leading us closer and closer to conflict. When you look at what North Korea is doing with their nuclear testing, which they just tested and ICBM, which if given the right range and given the proper aerodynamic, could reach the United States. Again, could they actually pull it off? Still remains to be seen. But they're testing on a much quicker and higher note. You've got China who is taking the South China Sea, being very aggressive towards Taiwan, being aggressive toward the neighbors around. Again, just sort of seemingly pushing the envelope. When recently with President Biden, and also, frankly, it was an interesting with freer Trudeau. Justin Trudeau with the Canadian prime minister was very aggressive over what he believed was a leaking of their conversations to the media. And he was very abrupt in how he confronted that. As you go forward. So again, China flexing its muscles on the stage. I think China feels like they're with the American pullback, which we saw again in Obama. We're seeing it again in the Biden administration that there is an opening for China to assert its anonymous. Iran Iran is just Iran. And the human rights violations are still the greatest funder of terrorism in the Middle East. And they have their outlets of regimes Hezbollah and others who carry out their wishes and this is just who Iran is. It's been a destabilizing force in the Middle East for a long time.

"It's today explained I'm Noel king. On June 3rd, a remarkable meeting took place in Sochi Russia. There's a picture, it shows Senegal's president, who's also head of the African Union, sitting on one side of a small coffee table looking concerned. The head of the African Union saw this as a crucial way to reduce hunger in Africa. Talking with Vladimir Putin. And Vladimir Putin is on the other side of that table, smiling a little bit as Mackie saw lays out the problem. I look designed. There are two main issues. Crisis and sanctions. And we need to work together to overcome these two issues so that food, namely cereals and fertilizer, are removed from the sanctions list. The reason that the meeting is so interesting is because each side needed something from the other. Eddie wax covers food and agriculture for political Europe. So Putin really needs allies, he needs allies, obviously not in the west because the west has roundly condemned his invasion of Ukraine and the west is trying to arm his opponents in Ukraine to the teeth. But the African nations, many of them are hugely dependent on their food imports. Africa imports more than 85% of its food according to the UN and Russia and Ukraine have long offered it affordable sources of food and fuel. And now this war has really frustrated the supply lines going to Africa. Eddie, just to be clear, the foodstuffs, the oil and the wheat that Mackie saw would like to come from Eastern Europe into Africa..

The Discrepancy Between the Real Polluters and the Developed World
"So talk to us about the discrepancy between the real polluters and the developed world and then secondly, if these people are really serious, if fossil fuels are evil, if industrialization is evil, how much of this is truly the most pernicious post colonial colonialism if it were truly used against, I don't know. Third world countries like Africa who aren't allowed suddenly to use plastics made out of petroleum. So the duality of the standards first and then the real embedded colonial attitude that these people have. And while on the first point, the way the United Nations, they have a thing called the UN climate fund, $100 billion a year and Hillary Clinton was a big proponent of this as the Secretary of State under Obama when they did the UN Paris. Agreement. So this is the way if you look at some of the when they have a UN climate summit. The last one was in Scotland. I'm going to the one in Egypt this year in November. They're having one the next UN climate summit. The highest attending nations are African nations, South American and some of the poorer nations in the world. Why is that? Because they're all exempt from emissions. For one thing. And secondly, they're promised to be recipients of this climate aid, this redistribution, if you will, of money. And I talked to South African development activists who taught Leon low, who talked about this, the UN is going to give money to the leaders best able in Africa and South America, Asia, who are best able to lock their citizens in poverty and keep them poor because if you're poor, your emissions are low.

The Hypocrisy of Joe Biden's African Travel Ban Versus President Trump's Travel Ban
"Just confirmed that everything you think about what we're witnessing with the Biden administration is true. Headline, President Biden mocked for restricting travel from African nations after he attacked Trump for doing the same. This is so ridiculous. This is beyond satire. We're at a point where it's not even satirical anymore. You know the news about this new army Kron variant and South Africa. So what's Biden do? He bans travel from South Africa. Do you remember what he said about president Trump? Who did the same thing? President Trump trying to protect Americans from COVID. This is a tweet from Joe Biden. Trump further diminished the U.S. and the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban Biden said hell of a difference. In March of 2020, is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed.

stabilized a little bit Sean And I didn't want to give the perhaps false impression that it was off to the races to the upside here for risk assets So we still have the SX 200 trading down more than 1% but we have seen a bounce in oil We have seen currencies as I mentioned rebound a little bit How do you see the environment here on the early Monday morning in Asia Yes But in the 5th looking to buy it to those who want to just continue to qualify which was very much a product in a deterioration growth and it was expectations for the coming months and perhaps until more targeted shots are available So I guess given the risk capital in general is probably a big bonus benefit for quite some time in Central Bank savings and I think that it's understandable that people want to buy it There's a bottom line in this area that has been found what we understand about Sean I think we need to reconnect Sean let's reconnect with you in a moment so we can get a little bit more clarity to

told you So it's with a positive outcome though I mean he wants he wants the fed to take its foot off the accelerator It's a stranger it isn't because I mean you know with him being so highly

RICO you're listening to masters of business on Bloomberg radio my special guest today Steve fratkin is the president of Northern Trust wealth management They run about $355 billion in flying assets So we talked a little bit about alternatives earlier Let's address that a bit There seems to be a growing appetite for all manner of alternative investments given that stocks and bonds are all a little bit pricey Let's start with private equity What sort of demand is there from your clients for private equity And how do you guys respond to the question of potentially better returns in exchange for far less liquidity Sure Look investment has become much more granular over the decades And again just to be facetious large cap stocks versus high quality bonds 40 years ago Today clients think in terms of small cap mid cap large cap value international emerging markets private equity and thousands of flavors of private equity hedge funds same thing So in the quest for optimizing returns clients and their professional money managers in Northern Trust included have searched for different asset classes to combine together to give people the best chance to achieve their objectives Private equity clearly has been in the aggregate there are winners and losers in private equity but has been a asset class that has done well for many There are tradeoffs with private equity particularly in terms of liquidity But I would say amongst our clientele the appetite for private equity and private equity as a more normalized asset class continues to grow It's not the right asset class for every client But for clients who have the capacity the risk tolerance and so forth it definitely can play an important role in a client's portfolio And increasingly we're seeing more use of private equity today than we did say ten years ago What about venture capital or hedge funds to totally different entities from both each other and private equity What's the demand like for those products Demand exists for venture capital and for hedge funds as well Again the devil is in the detail not all hedge funds are created equally The fees that they charge the performance that they've delivered can differ substantially But there is again this same notion of I want to diversify my portfolio I want a range of options and so called alternative investments whether you call it private equity venture capital hedge funds seem to continue to be growing in appeal to our clientele What about crypto and things like blockchain and Ethereum There seems to be a lot of real interest in the space are you finding your client base is crypto curious I would say the demand for crypto is more muted amongst our clientele than some of what you read in the public press And that doesn't mean we have examples of clients who have invested in crypto and done exceptionally well right time But I would say in general if I had to caricature it I would say that crypto is still an evolving asset class that is misunderstood by many And I think most are treating it carefully And the ones that are making crypto investments are viewing it more as a More as a role of the dice than a rational Analytical view of what crypto is trading at today and what it's going to trade at tomorrow If you would as a bit of a roll the dice they may jump in a little bit But they understand that what goes up can also go down So I would say amongst our clientele overall crypto is still not widely in use So we mentioned briefly market is a certainly price you than it was 5 or ten years ago How do you manage around stocks and bonds Neither of which are inexpensive Look I think for many of our clients the market does go up the market does go down And one of the great features of our the goals driven methodology that we use for clients is that we build a portfolio such that after a lot of analytical work to evaluate their goals and so forth That enables them to endure and not have to sell in a down market We create something that's called a portfolio reserve I would liken it to the mode around your castle Some people like a wide deep moat some people need a narrower and less deep moat But think of that as high quality fixed income if the stock market goes down your bonds are still fine you can still pay your mortgage life is.

Marc Morano: Most Countries Are in It for the 'Cold Climate Cash'
"Welcome back to the man who told me more than anybody else about the climate hoax, Mark marano. I wrote about it, that moment in my second book why we fight. I have a photograph from the back of the rose garden for me. It had nothing to do with my remit national security. But it was my proudest moment in The White House when president Trump stood up in the rose garden, beautiful sunny June day, pulled us out of the Paris climate treaty called because it wasn't a treaty and said that the famous line that will echo down through the ages. I was elected by the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris, you're damn right. That's why the president removed us. The fact is, these things are absurd because they punish us and we are even cleaner today now thanks to president Trump than the requirements of the Paris accord, demanded of us whilst others like China and Russia are either unaffected unlimited or Mark. They get money from us to continue polluting. Am I missing something here? No, you're absolutely right. These countries are eager to come to the United Nations climate summit. So much so that they lifted the vaccine COVID vaccine mandate in Scotland. No, this is anywhere else you travel in Europe. You've got to have a 7 day at least in the U countries. You have to have a 7 day quarantine or 8 day quarantine, but they lifted it because they want these countries to come in because the only way they can entice them is with cold, hard cash. Of course, filtered through the United Nations. And the United Nations is seeking to pay the countries in the developing world who are best able to keep their citizens locked in poverty. This money will go to the leaders of these countries, not to do anything for the environment or to help their people. It's going to end up helping these leaders get reelected, building monuments, stadiums, ensuring their political machines are well funded. The UN knows politics. They are experts. They're not climate experts, but they're political experts. And this is the reason that you see all of these countries. In fact, the highest participation rates of these UN summits are usually African nations because they know the reason they're drawn there is the UN has offers of cold climate cash to go to these leaders around
