"But a lot of people don't have that, that ability. And that's what breaks my heart. These people continue to vote for the Joe Bidens of the world with the idea that yes, it will be better and I'll be able to work my way out of where I am. And it's actually going the other way. And welcome to another TFG podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with my partner, Mike Speraza. Mike, how are you doing today? I am good. No complaints here. I can't elbow you. You're not, you're not like sitting right next to me. I can pretend I am, but it's not really working for me. We can figure it out. I don't know if you can see my arms over here, but we'll figure it out. Yeah, I see them. I see them. Yeah. Hey, so it's back. Not actually COVID, Mike, but mask mandates. Major movie studio Lionsgate reinstating the mask mandate. Effective immediately, Mike. It's serious. It's dangerous. Get those masks on. They will be required on certain floors in the Santa Monica offices until further notice. And, um, this is the official, uh, note here from let's see Summer McElroy, uh, is response the manager for Lionsgate slash stars. And, uh, she says employees must wear a medical grade face covering surgical mask, K on 95 or N 95. Geez. I forgot how much I, I hated those terms, Mike, until just now when indoors, except when alone in an office with the door closed, actively eating, actively drinking at their desk or workstation, or if they are the only individual present in a large open workspace. So there are some exceptions, Mike, but can you even imagine that they're thinking COVID COVID is back when a couple people, a couple people have, have gotten COVID again and have tested for COVID -19 amazing. Well, yeah, I'll tell you what's not actually back. It's COVID. Uh, COVID is not actually back. I know they're saying there's a new variance, Mike, that's the new thing, right? Whatever GB four, five, two, one dash four, whatever they're calling this new one. LGB, Q plus AI, 14, 17, and that we know isn't coming back, obviously. Um, you know, it's, this is another fear tactic gets to get people all juiced up. It's working, by the way. Um, you know, and Mike, what's coming in 2024? Hmm. What is happening in 2020? Oh, another election cycle. So we need to scare people and we need to get people worried about not going to the voting booth again. So we can do what we did in 2024. If it's not what we did in 2020, now in 2024, what we know is Mike, there's going to be a crisis. We just don't know what it is. Is it, is it more COVID? Is it going to be a climate change issue where we're afraid you can't walk in public or you're going to die. So they can't go wait in election lines. We don't know what it is. They're going to try COVID again. I'm interested to see how it works though, because I really will tell you, I don't think it's going to work the way they think it is. You know, obviously people like us aren't going to follow it just the way we did last time, but will they get all the people they scared last time based on vaccinations, Mike and booster schedules? I don't think it's going to work, but we'll see. Well, Hey, why not try it though? That's what they say. That's what they say. That's right. Yeah. Keep going. Double down, triple down, quadruple down. So, so the, there were several employees, Mike, testing positive for COVID -19. This was from Dr. Nicole Sapphire. She said, the reason you have an uptick in cases right now is not because you did something wrong. It's because for the last several years, we've seen an uptick in cases in the winter. And we also see one in the end of summer. This is just a normal cycle of this respiratory virus. Now to your point, Mike, I think this is just the normal cycle, the normal routine for liberals and Democrats. The normal cycle is to fear monger, make people anxious again, make them feel like they, they might peril from, from the COVID virus. So you, you've got to stay in and then eventually they're going to start saying, um, but don't worry, you'll be able to vote, but you're going to be able to do it by mailing in your ballots. You're going to be doing early voting, right? So to your point, this is just part of their playbook. And I swear in somebody's crazy laboratory, political laboratory on a whiteboard, this is there, I'm sure for mid to late August scare up people in, on COVID again, scare them up. And then are we going to hear about more boosters, Mike, do you think? Well, it'll be interesting to see what they do. Here's my thing. And I believe this, I think this could be a good thing for Republicans to be honest with you, Mike, because if you do this again and you, you fight this fight, like the way they did the last time, you actually may move more voters to Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, whoever the candidate is, because people are just not going to do it. And I'm going to tell you right now, they think they're going to start to push this stuff in September, October, when kids are back to school and they're going to say the kids need to come back and mask. We need to put up the penalty boxes again. Um, it's going to cause mayhem. I thank God, Mike, I don't have a kid in school yet. Obviously both your girls are way out of school now, so you don't have to worry about that. But a lot of parents are going to have to worry about, I'll tell you if my kid was in school, I'd be ripping them out in homeschooling them so fast. I would make it work whatever my wife and I had to do. My child is not going to school and face diapers. My child is not getting boosted and vaccinated. It's not happening. Um, we'll see what happens though. I mean, again, do I think people are going to get scared and go boost up? I'm sure they will. The same way that all these people think that Donald Trump, you know, created an insurrection on January 6th, anything they hear from CNN or MSNBC, they'll run with and you know, some people, but I think a lot of the middle voters are going to say, wait a minute, I'm not dealing with this bullshit again. No way. So to use some of their terminology, do you think that literally the conservatives, the more moderate thinkers, the common sense thinkers, those that actually look at facts and evidence, do you think this is going to trigger, uh, their microaggressions, which I would say, if you tell them that they can't go out again, if you tell them that they need masks, that they must get vaccines, these are macroaggressions. These are aggressions far, far worse than not calling someone by the right pronoun. And, and do you, you think that this could really sway the more moderate thinker, maybe even the moderate Democrats and hopefully a whole bunch of independence? Yeah, I do. I think it's the same thing that we're seeing with the four indictments on Donald Trump. I think a lot of people in the middle that don't actually like Trump by the way are kind of like, wait a minute, this isn't adding up anymore. We're going after this guy on crimes that for the most part, Mike, they really have no evidence of, they just keep saying he does these things, but when called to bring evidence, they really haven't been able to. I mean, some of the crimes in New York with Alvin Bragg, you look at them and you're like, well, many people have made payments to people or, you know, many people have used different accounts and you know, you look at the one in Georgia, they're going after Mark Meadows for making a phone call to an attorney in Pennsylvania. What is the crime for that? Right. I think that's the same type of thing that we're seeing here with COVID where people are going to say, okay, enough is enough. I don't maybe love Trump as a man. I don't love Trump for who he is. However, I need to vote for someone that actually cares about me and that's not going to make my family and myself go through hell. And I do think there's fear out there too, Mike, with the indictment thing. I know I'm going back to that, but at some point, you know, it's kind of nerve wracking, isn't it? When are they coming after me? When are they coming after Mike Hayflick or Lomas or Wiggle or the financial guys as a whole? When you do these things that they've done, it begins to make you wonder again, not a conspiracy theory guy, but man, it's kind of scary what's going on right now. And if you don't see that, you're either blinded or you have a serious, serious form of Trump derangement syndrome, which I've said this on the record, Mike, and I'll let you get back in. Trump derangement syndrome has impacted and affected more infected, more people than COVID ever did. I can assure you that. Mm hmm. Yeah. You wonder, um, we'll, we'll talk a little bit more about Trump a bit later. Um, and then I want to talk to, uh, to you about our president, our president Biden, who, who, who visited Maui recently, just, just to wrap this though, many mainstream media outlets have actually been running a lot of, uh, of, of their programming on again, masking. So MSNBC, they ran a segment on kids masking to prevent the spread of the virus at the beginning of the new school year. Of course, PBS had one about wearing masks in crowded areas to prevent the spread. CBS mornings warned about the summer COVID spike that may happen due to people letting their guard down, Mike, they're letting their guard down. They're not, they're not behaving as they're supposed to. They're not, they're not, they're not programmed well enough yet, Mike, to know that they should have just been putting masks on Mike because the end of the summer was nearing. So, um, but we got to move on. It's making me, one thing I want to vomit. Let me say one more thing on that. This is, this is yet another thing that they're going to say as an Alex Jones conspiracy theory, because he was the one that came out and said, this is coming. Uh, it'll be another truth. Just like the Babylon B is now the, the full source of actual truth. Every time they joke about something, it happens. Um, Alex Jones has been called a conspiracy theorist for years now, some things he's been wrong and I will say that, but this is another one to say, Oh, they're not going to do that. Don't worry. They're not coming down with COVID mandates again. Oh, but they are. And there's evidence of it too. Target has gone to, you can pick stuff up now. They're creating pickup lines again. You have stuff talking about voting and elections again. I mean, it's, it's coming and I'm waiting for it, Mike. I'll tell you what's going to piss me off is when they do it with sports games again. Oh, you're not fully boosted yet. You don't have a mask on. Yes. Or you can't come into the bills or savers games. That will be the end of it for me. I think if they go to that, that, that extreme. I think you're right. I think when you start messing with people's sports and their inclination to want to go and get together and have some fun at a sports event, you really are. You really are needle in people at that point. Um, all right, let's talk about our president, Joe Biden. He finally makes it over to Maui to check out the conditions there. And, and this is what he does, Mike and his, I mean, literally moderate to maybe severe dementia state that he's in. he uses a minor fire at his house to claim he knows what it's like to lose a home while visiting Maui. So this is essentially what he said. I don't want to compare difficulties, but you know, he's going to as soon as he says that right, Mike. Um, but we have a little sense Jill and I have what it was like to lose a home years ago. Now, 15 years, I was in Washington doing meet the press, like to actually look this up by the way, and do some fact checking on this because you know, many of the things he said never, never proved to be true. He says, um, lightning struck at home on a little lake outside the home, not a lake, a big pond. It hit the wire and came up underneath our home into the air conditioning ducts. To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my Corvette 67 and my cat. So this isn't the first time he's recalled this Mike. He, uh, he, this happened in 2021. He said that his house burned down and, uh, you know, here, here he goes, you know, this is what I think people who are ill do. Um, this, this actually says it started a small fire that was contained to the kitchen. So this was not almost losing his wife and his Corvette and his cat, Mike, by the way. So a little bit of extra, what we call that hyperbole, exaggeration, um, just telling a damn right lie. So, so he is so out of touch. There's another, another thing I want to mention then about his visit there, but he is so out of touch that even in the worst of tragedies, literally standing on charred ground, looking at probably miles worth of, of nothing, it's got to look like a war zone in Maui. And he can only think of himself, Mike. Well, first thing is Joe was your house fire. Was that climate change too? Or was that just a faulty wire? That would be my first question. Number two, Mike. Yeah. I mean, look at, this is politics. One -on -one you try and reason with voters. You try and reason with people, you know, in ways that you can, just like he does with the, the Bo Biden stuff. But there's a point in time where it's not, it's just not comparable. Right. And you have to see that moment that have a brain in your head. And I don't think he has it personally. Um, this as, you know, as like you said, there's charred remains, thousands of people still missing, by the way, your, your pitch is, Hey, I almost lost my cat. I don't care about your kid that might be under the rub. In my Corvette. Your cat, your Corvette, the same Corvette that Hunter was putting the documents in and bringing hookers to same Corvette. I'm not sure. But the, the, the thing like, again, at the end of the day, these people don't know where their loved ones are and you're making comments about a small house fire that was probably from an oven that you left bread in. And you're talking to people like, Hey yo, your kid's underneath the rubble. Don't worry about it. I lost my cat in my Corvette. I mean, I know how it feels. No, you don't Joe. And that's not how you talk to people that are going through the single worst thing in their life, especially ones that lost loved ones. You know, the ones that lost their house, Mike, that obviously stinks. And you know, I deal with a home insurance that's terrible, but it's when you don't know where your loved ones are, or you don't know where your family is or your friends are because in children are right. That's, that's the stuff that to me that like, come on, Joe, man, don't, don't, don't patronize people like that and don't make people feel like crap. And then tell a story about you and your family. It's unbelievable. Yeah. It never ends. Here's a, another, another thought that he had as he, as he was walking around Maui, he basically says, you know, he he's walking amongst these people and he shaking hands with officials, of course, probably not even sure where he is at that point. Um, he stops in front of a search and rescue dog. And while petting the dog, he joked the boots, the canine was wearing. He says, you guys catch the boots here. He smiled and said, that's some hot ground, man. So here he goes with his man comments, again, just with no common sense, whatever, no compassion at all joking that the dog's got to wear boots because the ground is so hot. I mean, I just like, this just makes me wonder who still supports this man. This man is ill. This man should not be, he should not be leaving his home anymore. I don't think he could leave his home unattended and not get lost or maybe die in a tragedy himself. And who on earth is still support in this man? Well, he's, he's the guy that you're, you know, your parent, let's say that you're afraid to leave at home, or they're going to leave the stove on and burn the house down. And I'm not trying to make a, a fire comparison. That is not, that is not, I totally agree. I'm being serious, right? I mean, this is the type of guy we're talking about here. We've all had that in our family, grandparents, parents, you know, maybe even children that are, that are handicapped or something, right? I mean, we, we have these fears and they're legitimate, right? And for a guy that can barely talk in public, you do worry, is he forgetting things that, you know, whatever it may be. Um, I'll say this to him. I don't know if you saw the video. It's came out today and it's been circulating today of him at some kind of, uh, event in Maui and he's falling asleep. Did you see that? He's falling asleep. No, I thought you were going to, I thought you were going to say the one where he was doing the press conference and the guy offered him a glass of water and he kind of looked like he didn't even know what that meant and he wandered off to his left. But no, I didn't even hear about this next one. I don't think we can possibly keep up, Mike. We can't possibly keep up. And to our point, Mike, you know, we make jokes and we smirk sometimes we talk about this guy, but, but it's really not funny. And it really is a problem that we have that as our leader, again, dealing with, uh, president G in China, dealing with Putin in Russia, um, even dealing with Zelensky in Ukraine, like this is not the guy you want doing that. And again, what scares me is and not to make light of it, but you wouldn't trust this guy dog sitting for you, let alone running the country. Right. And again, to my point, how many like you you've had family, I've had family that you, you fear for their safety. If you're not around, right. That is this guy through and through. It's scary.
Oliver Darcy: Tucker Carlson Made Sean Hannity Look Like a Moderate
"Here's a clown at CNN He used to pretend to be a conservative Oliver Darcy He already gets it He's got it down He's already he thinks he's noticed the wink and the nod here Check this out Listen He is so extreme I mean the things that he was doing on this program make Sean Hannity look like a moderate I mean it started off more as he was a mainstream conservative figure but he has really been radicalized in recent years and he's also radicalized his audience I mean the things that were promoted on his show used to be what you would see on InfoWars which is that far right company hosted and founded by Alex Jones He was also facing over a $1 billion in legal problems but it was being mainstream to the Fox News audience which is obviously very dangerous And so it's potentially possible that Fox thinks it can get away with some more like Sean Hannity who promotes a lot of conspiracy theories himself but is a little bit more mainstream not as radical as talking Do you understand they had the exact opposite position Just a few years ago when John was backing Donald Trump and a lot of mainstream Republicans were backing Ted Cruz they had the exact opposite position Oh my gosh these other people on Fox are okay but how did he so crazy This is what they do They flipped the script based on who's got raiden
Is Alex Jones Wrong?
"All right, ladies and gentlemen, back to the subject at hand. Dylan Mulvaney in this deal with Bud Light, I honestly believe, you know, my boy Alex Jones, and people think he's crazy. And he might just be a little crazy. But Alex Jones, in my opinion, has been right about like 99% of you say. Sandy hook was a one off, right? It was a one off. And nobody got killed over sandy hook, though. And they sued them for a $1 billion, which I think is a miscarriage of justice. You know, and I get it, people's kids died, but the killer is the problem. Some dude on the Internet that may statements that may or may not be true about your kids who already did.
Alex Jones: Chinese Spy Balloon Could Have Launched EMP Attack
"Ladies and gentlemen, there are grave security concerns that not a lot of people are talking about. But one person who is talking about it is Alex Jones, and he's been talking about this for a very long time now and many people just about everybody dismissed Alex Jones and the folks over at info wars because they said there was no way no way that it was possible that the Chinese would attack America using balloons. They laughed Alex Jones out of the room. Cut number ten. When you've got these blimps and you've got these dirigibles, you've got these balloons with big high-tech packages flying around, drifting around. And a lot of them have little propellers on the sides of little boosters or thrusters. I don't know if this one does because we haven't gotten a shot on the top of it. But regardless, that could very easily be an EMP weapon package or a task package to test an EMP attack. And you can bet your bottom dollar, China's got a thousands of them lined up ready to launch and send them to the North Pole right into the United States. Or any targets they want. And with a couple dozen of these, you would guarantee knock out everything above ground in the U.S.. And it turns out he's absolutely right about that. And the scientists are now talking about the concerns that the Chinese could launch and use these balloons as delivery platforms for a nuclear EMP attack. And you say, well, would they really destroy civilization? No, it's not destroying humans. It's actually destroying all of our electronics. And

"1 million 100 million. You get a million. You got a 100 million. You got a 50 million. On his InfoWars show, Alex Jones mocked the nearly $1 billion jury verdict against him for spreading the myth that the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history never happened, saying he could keep the sandy hook families in court for years. Getting the verdict is only the first hurdle in a long legal process for the families. One complicated by the fact that Jones company free speech systems has filed for bankruptcy. Joining me is bankruptcy attorney Nicholas COFF of Fox Rothschild. This verdict 965 million and then another 50 million in Texas. How often are these huge verdicts collected? Well, I mean, it's tough when you have a banker T case intervening in particularly here. We have a bankruptcy case that was filed kind of strategically before these judgments were entered. When you have a $1 billion judgment, it's pretty tough to collect on it and certainly there's a lot of motivation on this part to come up with as many maneuverings in court as possible. You know, appropriate or not to delay payment on these debts and these bankruptcy cases are certainly kind of part of that strategy to prolong payment into at least come up with a narrative that free speech systems doesn't have the money for it. He's personally liable for the damages. If he doesn't file for personal bankruptcy, he claims he has less than 2 million to his name. If he doesn't file for personal bankruptcy, Kim the plaintiffs continue to go after him, you know, chase down his assets, go after his wages. Yeah, they'll be able to chase him to the ends of the earth if they want to. It's not going to have the typical judgment that you'd see in a torque case where someone's injured and incurring medical bills, hospital bills that need to get paid with this judgment. There is a little bit more flexibility on the plaintiff's part to sit around and wait for Alex Jones to start coming up with the money. But again, Alex Jones is going to be motivated to continue trying to come up with legal fictions that suggest that he has no money to pay judgment. Let's talk about the bankruptcy proceedings at his company free speech systems is in. The sandy hook families have intervened in the bankruptcy case. They accused Jones of burdening his company free speech systems with $54 million in concocted debt owed to a different company, owned by Jones and his father. When will those claims be settled? Well, part of the early litigation in the bankruptcy case was the victim saying, hey, this debt with PQ PR is concocted. And it's going to form the basis of an argument that free speech systems is insolvent and judgment proof. So the victims said to the bankruptcy court, look, they filed their schedules and their financial disclosures, pre speech systems did. Indicating these debts were legitimate, the only person in charge of confirming whether they're legitimate is Alex Jones and his cronies who are running this business. We don't trust that. Please appoint a committee in this case to look into this. And the court kind of took a middle ground approach instead of appointing a committee of the court said, what I'm going to do is I already have a sub chapter 5 trustee who is a disinterested person. I'm going to expand the scope of heart disease and I'm going to have her investigate whether or not these debts actually are legitimate. And so the debt is going to have to respond to document requests, but trustee has issued the bankruptcy court has kind of pumped the brakes on moving the bankruptcy process forward. So this independent and kind of unusual investigation can take place because the bankruptcy court seriously doubted the legitimacy of those debt. Could the bankruptcy court eventually order liquidation of Jones business? I don't think the bankruptcy court could or would necessarily order a liquidation, but the position that I find themselves in now is a little difficult because we now have an independent investigation into the legitimacy of this major secured debt. And if the investigation determines that this debt is not legitimate, the gambit that seems to have motivated this bankruptcy filing in the first place of an otherwise healthy company before the judgments were entered. Kind of evaporate. And then you're left with a debtor under bankruptcy courtesy provision that is required to file a plan that pays creditors in some way, at least with revenue over the next 5 years. And you don't have this kind of manufactured debt to serve as an argument that the only entity that can get paid is an Alex German's affiliate, but that would then have to contend with the fact that it's able to an obligated to pay these judgments at least in part. The interesting problem for free speech systems is its revenue is based on Alex Jones, podcasting, and nobody can force Alex Jones to continue podcasting for free speech systems. So one of the significant points of leverage the debtor has is if Alex Jones said, look, I'm not podcasting for free speech systems anymore. You can have the liquidation value of the company, which is probably not going to be significant since they don't really have significant assets. Could he then podcast for a different company? Yeah, he could. I think that there would be significant arguments that this company would essentially end up being an alter ego of free speech systems. But the problem is that just creates more litigation more delay and more time investigating this kind of web of companies that Alex Jones has built up. There's a separate question that you also raised about his own personal liability if he's continuing to generate income that might be a source of collection against him personally. One thing is sure a lot more litigation ahead thanks, Nick. That's Nicholas COFF, a Fox Rothschild. Coming up, mixed verdicts in tattoo copyright cases. This is Bloomberg. Businesses

They accused Jones of burdening his company free speech systems with $54 million in concocted debt owed to a different company, owned by Jones and his father. When will those claims be settled? Well, part of the early litigation in the bankruptcy case was the victim saying, hey, this debt with PQ PR is concocted. And it's going to form the basis of an argument that free speech systems is insolvent and judgment proof. So the victims said to the bankruptcy court, look, you know, they filed their schedules and their financial disclosures, pre speech systems did. Indicating these debts were legitimate, the only person in charge of confirming whether they're legitimate is Alex Jones and his cronies who are running this business. We don't trust that. Please appoint a committee in this case to look into this. And the court kind of took a middle ground approach instead of appointing a committee of the court said, what I'm going to do is I already have a sub chapter 5 trustee who is a disinterested person. I'm going to expand the scope of her disease. And I'm going to have her investigate whether or not these debts actually are legitimate. And so the debtors are going to have to respond to document requests, but trustee has issued the bankruptcy court has kind of pumped the brakes on moving the bankruptcy process forward. So this independent and kind of unusual investigation can take place because of the bankruptcy court seriously doubted the legitimacy of those debt. Could the bankruptcy court eventually order liquidation of Jones business? I don't think the bankruptcy court could or would necessarily order a liquidation. But the position that I find themselves in now is a little difficult because we now have an independent investigation into the legitimacy of this major secured debt. And if the investigation determines that this debt is not legitimate, the gambit that seems to have motivated this bankruptcy filing in the first place of an otherwise healthy company before the judgments were entered. Kind of evaporate. And then you're left with a debtor under bankruptcy courtesy provision that is required to file a plan that pays creditors in some way, at least with revenue over the next 5 years. And you don't have this kind of manufactured debt to serve as an argument that the only entity that can get paid is an Alex German's affiliate, but that would then have to contend with the fact that it's able to an obligated to pay these judgments at least in part. The interesting problem for free speech systems is its revenue is based on Alex Jones, podcasting, and nobody can force Alex Jones to continue podcasting for free speech systems. So one of the significant points of leverage the debtor has is if Alex Jones said, look, I'm not podcasting for free speech systems anymore. You can have the liquidation value of the company, which is probably not going to be significant since they don't really have significant assets. Could he then podcast for a different company? Yeah, he could. I think that there would be significant arguments that this company would essentially end up being an alter ego of free speech systems. But the problem is that just creates more litigation more delay and more time investigating this kind of web of companies that Alex Jones has built up. There's a separate question that you also raised about his own personal liability if he's continuing to generate income that might be a source of collection against him personally. One thing is sure a lot more litigation ahead thanks, Nick. That's Nicholas COFF, a Fox Rothschild. Coming up, mixed verdicts in tattoo copyright cases. This is Bloomberg

"This is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio. 20 million 50 1 million 80 1 million 100 million. You get a million. You got a 100 million. You got a 50 million. On his InfoWars show, Alex Jones mocked the nearly $1 billion jury verdict against him for spreading the myth that the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history never happened, saying he could keep the sandy hook families in court for years. People actually didn't get any money. Getting the verdict is only the first hurdle in a long legal process for the families. One complicated by the fact that Jones company free speech systems has filed for bankruptcy. Joining me is bankruptcy attorney Nicholas of Fox Rothschild. This verdict 965 million and then another 50 million in Texas. How often are these huge verdicts collected? Well, I mean, it's tough when you have a bankruptcy case intervening in particularly here. We have a bankruptcy case that was filed kind of strategically before these judgments were entered. When you have $1 billion judgment, it's pretty tough to collect on it and certainly there's a lot of motivation on Alex Jones's part to come up with as many maneuverings in court as possible appropriate or not to delay payment on these debts and these bankruptcy cases are certainly kind of part of that strategy to prolong payment into at least come up with a narrative that free speech systems doesn't have the money for it. He's personally liable for the damages. If he doesn't file for personal bankruptcy, he claims he has less than 2 million to his name. If he doesn't file for personal bankruptcy, Kim the plaintiffs continue to go after him, you know, chase down his assets, go after his wages. Yeah, they'll be able to chase him to the ends of the earth if they want to. It's not going to have the typical judgment that you'd see in a torque case where someone's injured incurring medical bills, hospital bills that need to get paid with this judgment. There is a little bit more flexibility on the plaintiffs part to sit around and wait for Alex Jones to start coming up with the money. But again, Alex Jones is going to be motivated to continue trying to come up with legal fictions that suggest that he has no money to pay judgment.

"Hey everybody, it's JJ and Kelly here and we have an important update for you. We wanted to bring you all in update on an episode that we did more than a year ago where we discussed Alex Jones. I'm probably know he's a conspiracy theorist who claimed that the sandy hook shooting was a hoax and that victims and survivors were in fact actors. I think Kelly and I have been talking before we started recording here. We're still angry. We're going to stay angry about this, I think, for a while. Yeah, 'cause it's disgusting. And, you know, as you probably seen, Alex Jones has made a lot of headlines lately. And this might make you a little happy JJ because he's now been ordered to pay $49 million over his false claims. And while it's true that because of some caps, he probably won't actually have to pay $49 million. There are other court cases in jurisdictions that don't have those caps in those cases are still ongoing. When you're a jerk, you lose your money and it makes me happy. It's about time that he is being held accountable, truly. For folks who are listening who need a refresher, the sandy hook shooting occurred in December of 2012 in newtown, Connecticut. It was a massacre. 26 people were killed, including 20 students who were only between the ages of 6 and 7 years old, and then 6 staff members were also killed. Sorry, every time I hear those numbers, it's still hard to take in. And as we discussed on the podcast, maybe because it's so hard to take in, I don't know. I don't understand psychology. But in the wake of the shooting, some people latched onto the idea that it never happened. And that the children killed and teachers killed were crisis actors or didn't exist at all. And one of the loudest voices calling the shooting a hoax was Alex Jones. He said that the sandy hook shooting was faked. And the purpose of faking it was to allow people to attack the Second Amendment. It gross doesn't even begin to cover how heinous his behavior and a lot of other conspiracy theorists behavior was. Yeah, it words fail. And the families of those killed at sandy hook sued Alex Jones in 2018 because of the additional pain and suffering. That his lies caused them. And those cases are continuing to this day. And during this latest trial, countless parents and family members detailed the additional suffering that they face due to these conspiracy theories that he was peddling. You know, everything from people showing up at their houses to online harassment and even death threats all because they just had the audacity to be related to someone who was killed in a mass shooting. We've talked to so many families who have had folks approach them in person and Kelly, you're right. I don't understand the psychology behind it, but going up to grieving folks telling them that their level wasn't really killed. And was it a survivor? That all that these grieving families were agents, you know, against the rights to own guns. One thing that has come up in our episodes that we did around grief, but also that comes up almost all the time when we talk to survivors is how much people appreciate being able to talk about their loved one, being able to talk about their lives, their personality, what they were like and sort of honor them, right? By remembering them. And so I can't imagine what it's like for the sandy hook families. To have someone say to their face that their loved one wasn't real or that they weren't killed, right? That is so hard to even comprehend what that would be like. And to make matters worse, Alex Jones has, since peddling these lies, gone back and admitted that the sandy hook massacre actually happened that the victims were real and that they did die in the massacre. I can't believe that that was like that that was a thing that needed to be said, right? Jones is facing other defamation lawsuits as Kelly said and is likely to remain in the news, unfortunately. But I think it's really important that we talk about this case as it fits into the broader world of conspiracy theories and the impact that these theories have on gun violence and on the survivors of gun violence, right? This has an impact beyond just the sandy hook case. Oh yeah, absolutely. Because, you know, like we both set up top. When we hear about the people killed at sandy hook. It is hard to take it in, right? But that's horrible that that many people were killed just by living their day. And so it can be easy to try to brush it away. And so when people claim that these massacres or gun violence in general, you know, just the daily gun violence that we have in this country isn't real or that they're false flags. They're saying that an epidemic that harms more than a 100,000 real people every year isn't real. And it's saying that their pain isn't real, that their loss isn't real. And okay, then the problem's not real. And we don't have to think about a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. I would like for it to not be real, Kelly. I wish I could believe that these things weren't real. Like I wish that we didn't know that it's real. But we do. And if you're listening to those podcasts, then you know it is too, right? And so there needs to be a solution. And solutions to gun violence do exist. So I just really want to hammer home that we can not let conspiracy theorists win. No. And so civil court cases that point out folks like drones are wrong, are so, so important. Yeah. Because other people need who might be thinking that they want to be like Alex Jones, which I don't know why you would. But people who are thinking that they want to do the same thing and grift just to be able to make money. You need to see that they will be held to account. So, you know, as more information becomes available about these cases, we'll definitely share it on the podcast. But in the meantime, we just thank you for being here with us. And listening and learning and being willing to work for a solution to a problem that as you said, JJ, none of us wish we was real. We don't I wish this wasn't a real problem, but it is. And so that's why we have this podcast and that's why we're so grateful that you're listening. So that one day we can talk about something else. I don't know puzzles. I love to do puzzles. I would much rather this to be the puzzle podcast. Yes. Absolutely. You want to share with the podcast? Let's just now going to touch with us here at Red Bull and Brady via phone or text message.

"Biden is taking a victory lap following the latest monthly jobs report. Today there are more people working in America than before the pandemic began. In fact, there are more people working in America than any point in American history. The economy added 528,000 jobs in July and unemployment ticked down to 3.5%. Alex Jones is being ordered to pay more than $45 million in punitive damages as part of a lawsuit filed by parents of a Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim. The news comes a day after Jones was ordered to pay over $4 million in compensatory damages after claiming the sandy hook school shooting was a hoax. Flash flooding is leaving as many as 1000 people stranded in Death Valley national park. The park received nearly two inches of rain Friday afternoon, which park officials say is nearly an entire year's worth in just a matter of hours. I'm Brian shook. You're listening to Bloomberg businessweek with Carol massar and Bloomberg quick takes Tim stenog from Bloomberg radio. The latest issue of Bloomberg businessweek magazine is a special double issue. With the entire feature section dedicated to the struggles facing women in America today. And the Supreme Court's decision to overturn roe V wade back in June may have been the breaking point. Katie Greipel and I are here with businessweek economic senator Christina lyn blad and businessweek features editor Danielle Sachs to explore this hard hitting and at times heartbreaking series of stories. And personal accounts that have emerged since the ruling. Christina, I want to start with you and talk a little bit about this double issue, this section and how it all came together. When did you start thinking about it? It started as a conversation right after the leak of the memo, the Supreme Court memo. It started actually with some members of our art department who are young mothers. And editor in chief, and it was this idea. Actually, the language we used at the beginning was it feels like there's a war on women going on in America. And it grew out of there. We sort of began to take stock, not just of the Supreme Court decision. But formula shortages, the past two years of working from home, juggling, school, closures, and just sort of how women feel burnt out. And then this just really the Supreme Court decision just really felt like just almost as too much, too much to take. I think it's absolutely. It also just felt like overturning roe was just like something that just felt unimaginable. And sort of the final straw. And the leak was the first to bop to the disbelief, and then once it happened, we were like, not only do we have to do this issue, but we have to do this issue very quickly because the rage has just been unleashed. And so what I really like about this issue is how many different angles you attack it from and we're going to get into a few here, but Christina, let's start with sort of the economic impact. What this means for women and all the advancements that women have made so far over the past decades. I think that people maybe weren't aware of actually how much research has been done on what abortion access means to women's own personal financial well-being and how writ large what that means for the economy. People have done research looking at this and found that for educational attainment, huge, huge factor. And earnings and the types of careers that women end up end up in. And you multiply that, sometimes two, three, four times for minorities. It actually there were a 154 economists and researchers compiled this huge amicus brief for the court, summarizing all of these decades worth of research. But as we know, in the end, the majority opinion, if you read it, is framed very narrowly on constitutional grounds and did not really address any of that. One thing that I noticed in the wake of the leaked opinion, back in May, and then in the actual overturning of roe V wade, was the way that a lot of people started talking about abortion and reproductive medical care differently. There was this move to really be public with experiences that many women and men had gone through. And I'm wondering if you could tell us about what I think is one of the most powerful features in the magazine, which features ten women sharing their stories about how an abortion changed their life. Christina just talked about the studies and the research that we have telling us economic story, but we really wanted to humanize that and bring that to a personal level. And really find and have women share their own stories of how not only an abortion change their life personally, but their ability to earn a living or their financial trajectory or their ability to just live out their hopes and dreams. And we really wanted to talk to a cross section of women. We didn't just want to talk to a bunch of CEOs. We wanted to hear from women's CEOs. We wanted to hear from working class women who want to hear from black women, immigrants, women, really across section. And there were certainly, we had two women who actually won in 76 and one is 80, so they obviously had their abortions pre row. So not only did they share the kind of harrowing stories of what it was like to get a phone number, call from a payphone, have someone pick you up in a car to get an abortion, unsure if you will ever make it home. But then be able to 55 years later to tell the story of how that enabled them to have children, you know, 15 years after that. And not only create financial stability for themselves, but for the next generation. We spoke to a woman who grew up Mormon in Utah and talked about hitting her professional feeling at the age of 22 because being a white Mormon woman who's pregnant, like that's it for your professional, your professional life. And so she was able to find a neighbor who helped give her the money to get an abortion and she ended up leaving Utah and now she's not only carved out an amazing career for herself. She's married and her husband's a stay at home father. We definitely heard from this cross section of women that in brown and black communities. That is often taboo to talk about an abortion and that sort of plays into a lot of anti abortion rhetoric and campaigns that have gone on over the years how the jobs ruling really these women felt liberated like we have to we have to get rid of the shame and we have to talk about and share these stories that may be uncomfortable. We even had a state senator open up to us. And talk about is something she carried with her for decades. And since she's come out about it, she's discovered two other women in her family who also had abortion. This has unleashed not only rage among women, but just sort of like bringing these critical conversations to the forefront. You know, when reading this issue, the feature is the articles in the issue. One theme kept coming up was how deeply personal. This is. Not just for the people featured, but for the way that we talk about reproductive rights here in the U.S. and Christina, that's no exception for your own story. And you got deeply personal in your essay here. Yes, I talked about an abortion I had at 26 for the same reasons that Danielle was talking about this other person we interviewed. I wasn't ready. I had an idea of what I wanted my career trajectory to be. I was in the early parts of that. I had just gotten a master's degree and just motherhood wasn't part of that plan at that early. I now have two. I have two children. It would be ten years before I would go on to have my first child. So yeah, I do think it's really important that we normalize talking about this that we get rid of the stigma. Because we have to convince the world that that allowing women to plan the size and the timing of their families as their right. And not only as I could just add. It's not only impacting women as Tim, I think you mentioned earlier. This impacts men and I

K. Simmons. But this movie picks up right where that one left off. So everybody knows that Peter Parker is Spider-Man, Spider-Man and Peter Parker. He's got to try and figure out a way to get the world to forget about him and he turns to Doctor Strange, who has played by Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Cumberbatch, cashless spell that tries to reverse the race the knowledge that Peter Parker is Spider-Man from. Yeah, Doctor Strange should be smarter than this. You would think. He was warned not to cast the spell by his assistant slash sorcerer, the new sorcerer supreme Benedict Wong. And he does it anyway. He cast the spell in it. It messes up the very fabric of reality, villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies start pouring into Tom Holland's Spider-Man's universe, the green goblin, doctor octopus, the lizard electro. Hello, Peter. That's a great trailer, by the way. Hello. It's a really good trailer. I'm not giving away anything that's not in the trailer. I'm careful not to either. These are no spoilers here, really. And Peter's got to get Peter's got to get them back to their universe. That's all I'll say about that about a lot.

Tucker Carlson’s Conspiracy Theory About Jan. 6 Capitol Riot
"You recall this guy. Tucker carlson on fox news. Yeah i think so okay. So tucker carlson. The other came out with a bombshell. He interviewed somebody from was it. Revolver media yes who got their tip from a one alex jones. I believe on this top. Is that right. We know that for sure. Joe alex jones claims but this conspiracy. Or at least as you know and the tip was look at the Indictments of some of the people from january six it refers to often unindicted co conspirators and unindicted co-conspirators can be everybody from the president of the united states. When they're when they're lawyers getting indicted it can be people who were arrested and then decided to give evidence on their friends or their family or their acquaintances or their work colleagues It could also be people who were informants before. Then it's possible. And i suppose it's conceivable that it also could be actual agents of law enforcement. Reason got caught up and we're not indicted for whatever reason but there's a long list of those things and apparently revolver media saw the days and assumed immediately that it was an fbi agent and they went on tucker carlson's show tucker was like the fbi was part of the gen. The planning of the january six. I should say checkers. Say that unindicted co conspirators can't even really be actual fbi agents. They can't actually be fbi agents because they wouldn't get it right. It's not just like oh. She's an array of possibilities here. It's no proposes not. He sang operatives. Which like does it really mean anything. And so you get a little bit of like. Fbi operative is not really means everything and it could have been like an informant or

There were a lot of calls for violence and rhetoric. That just didn't fly with those companies rules. Okay so where has parlor ben since. Then what's been going on behind the scenes for parlor basically went dark. You couldn't get to it on the internet in terms like a website and you couldn't get to its apps in february resumed operations on websites and also on android devices. The company has a new web hosting service. So it's not using amazon anymore. It said that it's not planning to make an effort to get onto google. Play being that you can access the app through android versions of the platform. Anyway google does power the android operating system but that is distinct from google play. And so that's when it resumed in at that point they said they had about twenty million users up from fifty million prior to when it went dark and then since then parlor has been trying to regain access to apple's app store and that has happened now.

"alex jones" Discussed on Republic Keeper - with Brian O'Kelly
"You know it's so funny how things come up your mind. How things connect as i'm going here and some you know sometimes i worry too scripted and kind of go off the cuff like this. I didn't interview when the podcast was very young with a friend of mine named aj and it was an audio only interviews before we were doing the video part of the show and it was right when that kid ahmad arbery had been killed and i think it was immediately after george george floyd murder Or death immediately before right in that timeframe and my friend. Aj was a black man. He he's gonna be with the lord now and But he said something on that show in the conversation that has stuck with me and it has stuck with me and it has stuck with me and it has come up over and over and over again and i want you to listen closely to the words of my friend. Aj adrian johnson. Here's what aj said. If something's intolerable people won't tolerate it now just sounds so simple right. But if something's intolerable people won't tolerate it and what he was saying. Is that the problem with racism in america is that some people tolerate it. It's not truly intolerable. I think he's right. There are some people who tolerate it. I don't think there's nearly as much of a disease paper. Wanna make it sound like right but the reality is if something's truly intolerable no one will tolerate it and so we need to make. Intolerable is the accusation. That if you're a conservative euro racist if you're white you're a racist if you're a christian racist and the question that i would ask you should and rene had it here. I was thinking the same thing so great minds think alike the question. I would ask that woman is. Why do you think black people are too stupid to get. Id why are you the racist who thinks that only white people are smart enough to get. I d what. What is it about the black community that makes them unable to get. Id why is it that you think the getting ide- is so complicated. That black can't do it. And why is it that you would think that. There's any kind of an intelligence difference between black people and white people. Why would anyone think that in modern america unless they were a racist. And so that's what she is. is a racist. And so eric. Bolling is fighting the good fight. They're right and over on. cnn nicole. Wallace who i think is the absolutely the worst. Most partisan Anchor in the whole business nicole. Wallace over here basically said that If she said even if aliens came now to to the world and wanted to know what is the worst thing on the planet that it would be republicans republican party in a rise up against those in the republican party who speech and language and their selection of debates are still killing people. I mean choosing to have a debate about vaccine passports in all states aggressively advocating for voter. Id's for laws that require id's is such flavored hypocrisy. It'd be funny if it didn't have such deadly consequences api think that they have and that's enough so What what they go on to say. That republicans are killing people. This is this is nothing new. Republicans are killing. People has deadly consequences and somehow equating a vaccine passport to getting ide- for voting. What a disgusting attempt to tell you what you know. If if you're gonna be advocates vaccine passports the real question would be why. Don't you advocate. Having an id for voting since you're into putting requirements on people to participate in life and that's what a vaccine passport is right. It's a permission to participate in life. and speaking of life and the human life issue I have said. And i and i will maintain and I find no reason to change my view that it is Inconsistent with christianity to be a democrat because the democrats are pro abortion and you cannot be in my view you cannot be pro. Lgbtq pro transgender. Pro you know Denigrating churches and reducing religious freedom which the equity act does and pro-choice and be a christian. You can do all those things to be christian. But you can't do those things in your christian well Life site news is a a pro-life site that leans catholic because it's it's so pro-life. They had their youtube channel totally banned. But a raymond cardinal burke. His title is the prefect of the apostolic signatura which i don't know what that means but horton catholic title. Apparently um i know he was. I think he was. I don't remember which said he was in here at one point but he's released a statement and here's what he says those who publicly quoted publicly and obstinately violate the moral law. He's talking about abortion. are in a state of apostasy automatically excommunicated and thus must not be permitted to receive holy communion. He explained that had been written to clarify the question. Which catholic and non-catholic pose with regard to how catholics particularly politicians are being allowed to receive holy communion while publicly promoting programs in laws which violate church teaching such. A question applied particularly those who engaged in promotion of abortion on demand. Right and so He says that that this quote touches on the very foundations of the church's teaching regarding faith and morals..

"We've seen nothing different. And so that's my favorite part of that the whole or angels. Now i eric bolling. I don't know if he has remember about. I think this is maybe three years ago. Two years ago something like that. There was a big deal at fox news and The roger ailes Was accused of some Inappropriate sex stuff. treating women. appropriately and gretchen. Carlson was a fox news anchor and came out and spoke out against roger ailes and others and i think she was also One of the women who accused bill o. Reilly although i may be wrong about that. It doesn't matter bill. O'reilly was accused at the same time by some people there. And so was i ed henry and bowling and so at henry was that was an anchor and is now unemployed. I i believe. And eric bolling is now back over on a network called first tv as his bill. O'reilly and Eric malling said from the beginning. This is all bs. There's nothing to it. And he's back on tv At henry said the same thing and actually he and i are were timing. Didn't work out. We're going to catch a baseball game together. in dc at some point he is maintained that none of this stuff about him as right and he's You know working with attorneys on figuring out how to do counter suits and all the other stuff related But anyway bowling guy you may remember and the he used to be on fox news and and one of the things about bowling that he lost a son to opioid addiction. And so i. I've got a little bit of a soft spot for anybody who loses a son At some level and he was on tv bat over in england and the they basically accused him of being a racist and he walked off the set. And this really is reflective. I think of it certainly reflective of how i feel and i think it's probably reflective of how many of you feel when people say that you're a racist just for being a conservative. Here's our bowling. A major league baseball pull the all star game from atlanta atlanta's fifty percent african americans and they did on the heels of what i eat has been told has been fed from the biden administration. That somehow somehow this voting rule is bad for african americans in state georgia. They pulled it from the state of georgia and put it into denver colorado with nine point. God allow me to finish nine point. Seven percent african american representation in denver. Here's what they be. African one second is jeff. Here's what they did to be african-american american community minority businesses in atlanta in cobb county. They took a hundred million dollars of revenue. They took eight thousand booked hotel rooms and a move them out of the state and put them in a state and a city with far less diversity than than stayed by the way. If i issue wants to complain about this. Take up a stacey abrams. Who's the voting advocate in georgia. Who said it was a mistake. Both senators or both democrats african american. Who said it was a mistake. Says to just just to the point that stacey abrams was making is actually businesses are hurting atlanta. All by moving stuff out and by the activists on the stumps taking you want to respond to that one. I do because. I think it's really rich for any republican especially a white man to run around and claim that they care about the economic condition of black communities and businesses. When that's all a lie. Okay there's nothing in their policies. I finished that. The other thing is is that for the biden ministry comes on. Hey i'm gonna let me finish. I don't work for the biden administration. Never have but what. I am is a black person in america and everything that these voting laws stand for and what they look like are reminiscent to the jim crow policies that my family's lived under this every single thing about it so this is all about racial discrimination. And how dare you try to act. Like you're somehow a proponent of black people and businesses just to make a point and to try to create a wedge. It's ignorant and it's just disrespectful disgusting. I'm done put me off. That's discussing. And i am nowhere anything you're painting me to be and the problem with american politics is exactly that because i'm white racist at bs. Don wh- when you just stay stay for this question. And he didn't stay and good for him because all of us all of you. I don't care if you're black. White yellow purple. I don't care you need to start defending people against this false accusation. You need to defend yourself if you're accused and you defend anyone else that you hear falsely accused period end of discussion mac in I think it was october Before the election. I did a little segment saying an open letter to friends listening to it. The other read. i mean. i probably shouldn't have done that. But i was. I had a. I had several people who accused me of being a racist because i was supporting donald trump and they accused me directly to my face so i did an open letter kind of thing and i said you know you can say whatever you want about donald trump and i'm even thick skin enough. You can say whatever you want about me. I come into the public space here and put my name and face out there. Expect to get attacked. It's fine but you can't say this about my mom anymore. You can't say about my grandma can't say to my wife and my daughter and my son's my deployed son right. Now who is literally risking his life for americans of every color. You're gonna call him a racist because he's white. It just doesn't work. It's just wrong and the only solution to it is to make it intolerable..

"Of untruthful illness in our office under congressman gates. Gates's leadership women are not only respected but have been encouraged time and time again to grow achieve more and ultimately no our value many of started in entry level positions that have been promoted to positions of leadership within the office in our professional ecosystem. Women are given every opportunity to advance and utilize our talents to help the country in the best possible way on every occasion. He's treated each and every one of us with respect thus we uniformly reject these allegations as false. Congressman gates will continue to lead by example and stand for the people of america who have been maligned by the liberal elite and we will stand with him. While we recognize the scrutiny. We will face for making this decision. We take comfort in the hope. That more americans and elected officials will stand up and refuse to remain silent and of quote and signed the women of the office. Of us congressman. Matt gates. Okay so the. The reality is that You know the old saying where there's smoke there's fire right when you get one application one person who says you know that this person harassed me like we had with andrew cuomo. The next thing you have is the floodgates open and everybody comes forward and says yeah me too me too. They were just waiting for one person to have sufficient courage. And there's a case in the news right. Now that that illustrates this really really well. And it's the case of quarterback deshaun watson. Who's the quarterback for the the houston texans and Got a great quarterback. And i had him on my family fantasy football team right. I mean i wasn't of course we didn't know about this stuff right but here it. Is ashley solis. The woman to file a lawsuit against houston texans quarterback shawn watson came out and spoke on tuesday for the first time. And here's what she said. My name is ashley solace remember that name. Every woman and man out there who is a survivor. Here's my story. I hope my story gives them courage to speak out. It's taken me a long time to get this point to come up publicly and speak my truth. She said during a news conference on tuesday so she was the first one to come out and say anything and of course what happens immediately. Now they're twenty one more twenty one more accusations from women who were all remaining anonymous there. Jane does jane know number. One gino number two. So when you have twenty one accusers. Guess what to shawn watson not a good guy to sean. Watson's probably criminal to shawn watson likely assaulted and maybe rape some of these women and to shawn watson probably should go to prison. That's the upshot of that. Because you have when you have twenty one accusers. You know. and they're anonymous because they're worried about repercussions. I mean this. This is a problem right so The attorney that represents her. Tony busby is his name. And he says He spoke to her Many times She came to him with a story and and she. He said he spoke to her many times. He discouraged her from coming forward. And even the attorney said yeah. I'll tell you what man if you do if you come forward. He's pretty powerful. And this is going to be pretty ugly and so she did anyway. Good for her. And shawn watson is busted and so it's only only reasonably. Turn off my ringer on my phone during the show Only reasonable to expect that if twenty one people come forward. He's guilty right. But alternatively on matt gaetz aside kind of bread cavenaugh all of the women in brett kavanagh's life defended him. All of the women and matt gaetz his life are defending him. The reality is it's not not. I mean maybe maybe matt gaetz has done something wrong. I don't know but it appears that. This is a pure and simple shakedown from everything that that i can see and so i. I don't know how far these discussions went about a twenty five million dollar loan or whatever. But i know. Those discussions were primarily with his dad. And so it's it's pretty murky. But what's not. Emerging is a picture of a sex trafficker. That's what's not emerging. That emerged about shawn watson. but it's not emerging about matt gaetz I think we will wait till after the break. I will describe what we're gonna see after the break here. Alex jones so many of you know who alex jones is have watched his Info wars program. And i have been a not a fan many times and I would say this. Alex jones alex jones has been right about a lot of stuff and he is dead wrong about some stuff and the stuff. He is dead wrong about is. It's pretty damaging candidly He he's the guy who claimed that sandyhook was a false flag attack and that the dead kids were live action rule players and that the parents involved where live action role players. Obviously this is not a position that we that i can support. Maybe you do you believe that. But i i think that's just dead wrong and hurtful and and you know really really damaging to the people who were the victims there Regardless alex jones has now gone down to the border with his cameras. And he's going to these migrant detention centers and they were outside of one of the Migrant detention centers when they were able to see see. If i can get it up here and maybe play before the break. I just how long it is. I make sure it's not too long They were able to get their outside one of the detention centers. And that's too long so we're getting back. They saw some kids. And i'll describe it. Because the videos facile described played after the break. He saw this van. They're piling kids into van and it was outside of a A covert testing center. And what they noticed. What was that there. Were putting kids in the back of a van without carseats okay. So you know you've got to have a car seat for every kid in and this is every state in the union. I'm pretty sure but it certainly was texas law where they were and so. They're piling kids in the back of this van. Sitting them kind of lined up you know next to each other with you know you know whatever bags of stuff or whatever but These guys are not. They're not putting me in the car seats and so he realizes what's happening in stops them in the middle of the process and we'll have that video we get back. It's two minutes long. So i don't have time to play. We got thirty seconds..

"Brakes are at where you would need them in can ties it. That's so for those of you who are watching on facebook and so on. That's why the brakes are there And i love it. We've got a slovenian listener. I don't know if you know. I'm not sure i've pronounced this right boston. I think my wife has slovenian. So and of course. Malania trump is slovenian But yeah we've So we actually have petita for For holidays i probably don't pronounce it right but anyway slovenia is kind of in our families blood. Now this guy threatened matt gaetz and he claims he didn't threaten him but Here's where the rub is. And this is why the whole the whole thing is making the fbi and the department of justice. Look really really silly right now. Because if the fbi was investigating matt gaetz how how would this guy have known unless someone in the fbi told him and he's a former fbi official so even if there was an investigation. And let's just say that even if matt gaetz is totally innocent. And he probably is and didn't do anything wrong if an allegation comes like this against a congressman the The has an obligation to check it out right so if somebody comes. And says hey. We got a congressman who's a trafficking The fbi if they don't check it out there's gonna be a real trouble rates. They have to at least look into it but the question is how could them looking into it. How could them looking into it. Get to a guy who doesn't work for the fbi so here he is saying. Hey matt gaetz needed publicity. And i needed twenty five million dollars. We're gonna talk about where matt gaetz might get that kind of money in just a minute. But here's the guy this was on sirius. Xm on the michael smerconish show This guy appeared to get it done. Us show interest at anytime worked with the government. Our efforts have been leaked to the iranian. Got bad results is strictly function of money. And we want to twenty five million dollar loan to buy him back. I explained that in no way of trying to extort him and if he decides not to help him that reaffirm again matt gaetz is in need of good publicity. And i'm in need of twenty five million dollars to rescue. Let's so matt gaetz says that's extortion. Is it extortion. I never threatened the man matter of fact it was the opposite. I told him he decides not to help us. Never hear from me again right so it's extortion. Because he was saying. Hey i know. You're being investigated. And i can help make it go away and so it is extortion. Now where would matt gaetz get that kind of money. Well it turns out that matt gaetz his dad. Don gates is an inventor and the seal the healthcare company and really. You know he's a guy who did very very well for himself. And maybe that's where some of the money came for that funded matt gaetz his campaign. That's fine if you're a rich guy and your son wants to run for congress. There's nothing wrong with spending your money to help your son get elected right So matt gaetz. His dad is rich and apparently the The guy approached don gaetz matt gaetz his dad and said we need twenty five million bucks and what they were trying to get it back for Trying to do he says is to secure the release of bob levinson and bob. Levinson is another former. Fbi agent probably friends with these guys in the same circle who has been in iranian custody and The efforts to bring him back have all failed from trump obama. Everybody's been twelve years long time. Bob levinson has been in custody and All the efforts to get him back have failed. And what this guy just says. Every time we get involved with the government leaks to the iranians and the thing gets blown up so maybe somebody in the fbi has been leaking. It inappropriately that may all be true and they may have in. Fact needed money to try and secure. Bob levinson's release so what the question on the table. Steel is. how would you know that matt gaetz was being investigated if he was and it sounds like he was. And how would you know what. The contents of that investigation were because the f. b. should have been keeping that stuff confidential so now the fbi is looking really really stupid again. This is kind of par for the course for them the last couple years. Yes almost a decade now. so Today the women who work in. Us congressman matt gates. His office released the following statement. I wanna read it in its entirety. Okay here's what they said after the shocking allegations last week in the press. We the women of congressman matt gates. His office feel morally obligated to speak out. So you hear the man. Is this gonna take him. Apart as you're going to side with the accusation people now during congressman gates his time in office. We have been behind the scenes every step of the way we have staff meetings. We have planned his events. We have traveled with him and we have tracked his schedule. Congressman gates has always been a principled and morally grounded leader at no time has any one of us experienced or witnessed anything less than the utmost professionalism and respect no hint of impropriety.

"Well folks there are some interesting footage out. There of alex jones from twenty nine teen saying some fairly interesting things about donald trump. Now most of us go through our lives saying what we mean. Meaning what we say. That's the way i try to live my life. But here's a man that doesn't do any of that. He's like donald trump. Alex jones is motivated by money. And what they say is is dictated by that that that unquenchable thirst that they have for money and power and what they've done is they've really built a house of cards here out of everything that they've said and it. It sort of throws a lot of that into question. The bigger concern for me is. Can you really believe anything that these people say. And i mean donald trump and alex jones heavy. Listen to this clip. Here folks row. We're rolling part of me. The selfish part. Wish i'd never met. Donald trump wishes that. I'd never met. Roger stone makes two of us because unlike previous things. I'd done that. Were game changing. Those were just time space continuum reflections of the third big change. I was gonna be involved in. That was bringing donald. John trump dos often office. Because this is actually a question is this is gonna be a really good thing. But i'm gonna say it again. Strengths of us are mile. said it. it's it's truth. I'm just going to say that. I wish i never would've fucking trump should never would have happened and it's not that the attacks of it through some so sick of fuck donald trump man. Fuck it sick of doing this. Because it's like. I'm kissing his fucking ass sick of it. Wow that's Some pretty powerful stuff there folks. I don't know why did it take an a a year in. This came out in january of twenty nineteen. Why did it take a year. Plus change you know for this to come out. And this is evidently coming to us from filmmaker. Caroline ceo elian robertson. Who shot a documentary with jones. Evidently this was done in austin texas so why it took so long. I'm not sure. But i'll never forget what alex jones said about sandy hook in the the kids. The young kids that died there. I mean that's etched in my memory forever. I'll never forget what he said and how he called that a hoax folks. I mean that was absolutely Unbelievable but that's what they wanna do. Obviously that was the trigger. He wants to get the attention and all of this. And that's what he did with that statement but according to said there i mean how can i not agree with that. I mean i. I do agree with what he just said they are. The real story here is that they're both showman. Alex jones and donald trump. these men. Money is the goal. Money is the go here in. It's there's not much else that matters to them what they say and what they stand for it. It's all a house of cards. It really is and what he just said brings all of that into perspective. What they say what they stand for. It's a house of cards. It's a bubble of self confidence. That is just dying to be pot and as we know. Alex jones gave a speech on january sixth the day of the capital riots. In fact he listened to donald trump. Give his speech and then the secret service drove him. Alex jones where he gave his speech and he pursued alex. Jones did the the narrative of election fraud all the way for donald trump in that speech that he gave and then he said this back in january of two thousand nineteen. It's all about money and power and nothing else they both. Donald trump and alex jones. No election fraud is bogus. But it's the power and the money folks that drives them the power in the money and donald trump knew that he could gain that power in the money if he was reelected and not only that but he also outrun the statute of limitations on the pending litigation against him. Alex jones knows exactly what trump is and just forget what he says on info wars that show that he's got just forget all of this what he says. The real bore for alex jones. it's being waged is the internal war in his soul over. What he knows is good versus. What he knows is evil. That's the real war. That's the real word that alex jones is fighting..

"Everybody's welcome back to another episode of red balloon greedy and I am still your host a jam phone and I'm still your co-host Kelly Simpson. This is true. You are still my clothes so much change from week-to-week. Yes. Well, I'm glad we still have each other for normalcy. I didn't I didn't expect that. This is what we were going to talk about today, but you know twenty twenty one who knew and that is so-called gun truthers gun hoaxers who think that mass killings like the ones perpetrated at Sandy Hook were organized by the government to promote more restrictive gun laws wage. First of all, did it even work that's a whole other thing but I find it so disturbing how a lot of these same people who believe these theories also believe that no one died and then actors are playing the parts of the victims involved. Any relatives and you know, we've had an opportunity to meet some of these amazing people personally and so it is very very upsetting to know that people are calling them Liars. It's I I really like that's the fact that people will go up to people who have lost children and fight with them that it's an actor. I can't I can't I'm going to be very Millennial. I just can't yeah, I think that's fair wage. And I mean if you can imagine these families of gun violence victims are already breathing and also grieving many times in a very public way whether that's at their local level or or a national level and you'll have a member of Congress for a few that's just re-victimization and that's so awful. But I'm so happy that we have the opportunity to speak to to amazing fathers who lost their young daughters and who have since been attacked by these so-called truthers and who are also great gun violence prevention Advocates to tell us what this has been like and offers some wisdom on how we can combat the job. I think that's the important thing to take from this is that when we see sort of awful folks and in the news claiming that these mass shootings are you know, quote unquote false Flags or things of that nature that there are young folks fighting for gun violence prevention that are also going through this and we should be lifting up their voices. So I'm really happy today that we get to lift up the voices of Andy Parker who is the leader of and he's fight and he's the author of for Allison the murder of a young journalist and her father's fight for gun safety and Fred Guttenberg who's the leader of orange ribbons for Jamie and the author of find the helpers what nine eleven and Parkland taught me about recovery. And hope both of these dad's have been on the podcast before both of these dad's do so much for gun violence prevention. And unfortunately, like both of these towns have been targeted by these groups. So they have they have a lot to share with us. In addition to Andy and Fred were also joined by Brady president Chris Brown who's also had her fair share of dealing with conspiracy theorists and survivors of gun violence. Yeah. Chris has a lot of stories. So yep. I'm very excited to get into this. So we're all of us know each other. I want to make sure that our audience is aware of our fabulous guests. I mean, obviously they should know Kelley & I by now, but Andy friend Christian were introduced ourselves really quickly. I'm Andy Parker. I'm the father of Allison Parker who was the journalist that was killed on live television in 2015. I'm Chris Brown. I'm the president of Brady wage and I'm Fred Dutton Berg father of Jaime Guttenberg and in context of this phone call. Also brother to dr. Michael Goldberg and this is this was a long one that almost I think a podcast that came together exceptionally quickly when we started to see what was happening not just in the news but on Twitter or people were reporting on but this is something that I think I've talked to. I talked to Andy I talked to Chris and Kelly like we've all talked about this before right and so of course, I'm wondering to start with a primer for our listeners who may be, you know, have been lucky enough to be spared from hearing this nonsense. What are sub? A hoax theories that have popped up following some of the shootings that have have made headlines in the US and you know, why do you think this happens? Although certainly? We've seen them happen after shootings in places like church, right? Well the most notable one that everyone I think in the US and probably around the world knows about is Alex Jones's hoax theory that Sandy Hook was actually a false flag event and that the government was behind this that actually no children or Educators died at Sandy Hook and he became quasi celebrity within a the radio and and blog space related to that made a lot of money off of that the families of course of the victims of them had to deal with conspiracy theorists inspired by Alex Jones in this Theory actually going after them similar to what we saw with Marjorie green chasing dead. David Hogg down the street and calling MSD a false flag event that that's a very specific term right hand and they're using this term for a reason and I think a big part of what we're going to get to here is that you know, a lie goes around the world before the truth has the chance to put its pants on and and that's what we're seeing here is people who are making these things up sensationalizing themselves through it getting eyeballs around this and inspiring others and not this is really a form of mass psychosis around our issue and we'll get to this inspired at the very heart. First of all by the myths and lies of the NRA the saddest part of the whole thing though. I think if you really get down to the root of it is these things have happened and they do happen because of our lacks gun laws in this country club. This isn't fake news. This is America today and we need to solve it. You know, you're blushing about pillai going around the world before the truth has time to put its Panthers. What makes this a little different. Thankfully we've all got our pants on and that light is coming face-to-face with the truth and I don't believe anyone expected that the truth would punch back as powerfully as it did this past week and we're not done punching, you know this lunatic and we have to be clear. I'm referring to her as a lunatic no disrespect to anyone suffering from a mental health issue because we have two separate that individual from the bigger part. Yeah. I do want to jump in there though because we avoid terms like crazy or lunatic because we we certainly don't want to further stigmatize them to health issues. And I think we all realize that those who struggle with their mental health are more likely to be victims of gun violence, you know, certainly rather the perpetrators, but I totally get what you're saying here because birth Is is by behaving irrationally and irresponsibly, you know, she's behaving in this way. You know, she had said Parker was a false flag law enforcement and others were paid off. Okay, in order to create this gun issue for Nancy Pelosi. I shared video yesterday, which is now being widely distributed of her talking about Las Vegas wage is the most insane thing. If you haven't seen it, you need to watch it the insane belief that she has their but the good news is her insanity is coming face-to-face with the truth before it has time to take hold now, let's differentiate between her as an insane person manage to in a unopposed election sneak her way into Congress and the bigger problem, which is the fact that she has not disowned anything. She has said and the parties not making her do it the fact that the party has not said. The syllabus we're going to do something about it. We reject it. This is not who we are and.

"Including Apple, Google Twitter, Facebook kicked Alex Jones off the platform. And he lost a big megaphone. And it's not just that he lost access to the followers that he had. He lost the ability to easily recruit new ones. And he is among the best evidence that we have that deep platform in can work in removing bad actors from the public sphere. Okay till now, because he's president of the United States and by definition newsworthy. Donald Trump has faced only incremental sanctions by the platforms. And even those were fairly late in coming. But tell me what they were in the run up to him actually being removed from the platforms, Facebook and Twitter began putting labels on his post saying, for example, no, the election had not been stolen, and Joe Biden really did win it. Before that they placed labels on tweets that they believed might incite violence, such as during last summer's protest for racial justice. They had a big conflict over what to do when the president tweeted when the looting starts. The shooting starts. Ultimately, Twitter prevented that post from being shared. And I think the hope was that by taking some of these lesser measures, they might try to encourage the president to improve his behavior. But as we saw that did not work, no But then came the siege on the capital. And the platforms spring into action. How broad has been his deep platform in over the last 10 days? It's quite remarkable. Not only have we seen Facebook and Twitter removed the president, but he has lost, for example, the ability to sell merchandise through the store that he ran through a company called Shopify. He's no longer able to process payments through a company called Stripe. He's even lost access to some of the email tools that he used to reach people for fundraising. Know once he was kicked off of Twitter permanently, just to choose one platform, the obvious next step would have been for him to move to the reactionary friendly Twitter clone called Parlor. Then what happened? Parlor wound up losing its spot in the Google APP store in the Apple APP store, and then in a very unusual move Amazon Web services, which hosted all of the content on parlor Stop providing service, which means that stuff essentially can no longer be uploaded to parlor. And so as we're recording this now parlors, fate is very much uncertain. And here we learned that the idea of the platform Ng isn't just something that comes from one Supreme tech giant in one fell swoop, but it's kind of hierarchical. There is something called the content. Moderation. Stack. What is it? Well, you can just sort of visualized all of the services that are required to put something on the Internet or into a nap. As a stack. Each layer of it enables the layer below it. So at the very top of it, you would have telecom, You know, which enables the five G cell signal that transmits the Internet through the air and closer to the bottom. You have something like Facebook or Twitter, which is a user facing platform that has more specific rules around what people can and can't do. And in the middle things like I S P s domain registrars, cloud services and so forth. That's right. We might not even be aware that these services exist. But as we have seen over the past few days, they can be choke points in some of these extreme cases, which raises questions of. You know whether we as customers voted to give them that power right? And for the most part, they do not want to you exercise this power businesses want to have the maximum number of customers and so removing customers is typically something that they do as a last resort. But when questions of politics are involved, that does get much trickier. And it places executives into an extremely uncomfortable position. You know, we should say that there are examples at every level of the stack where you know some I s P or some telecoms somewhere has intervened to remove something bad from the platform. So this is not Entirely novel. What is pretty novel, though, is to see everyone acting around the same time to take the same action. A lot of the debate that we've been having over the past week is. Is this an extremely unusual one off event based on this extraordinary event of an attempted coup in our country? Or is this going to be a new normal where platforms begin doing this sort of thing all the time out of political pressure. I believe it's probably going to look more like the former unless we start seeing AH lot more political violence in this country. For years, Republicans have been accusing big tech of being partisan enemies. I'd say that argument is like criticizing a cancer surgeon for only cutting out the tumor and leaving the surrounding healthy tissue alone. But it does put a lot of control of the public sphere in the hands of tech giants, who already unequivocally have too much power. So what is to be done about this? In many ways, it is the question of our age. How do we hold to account these corporations? We have a system of government in this country that could pass regulations at any time. It's been investigating these companies in various ways. It's called the CEO's before the cameras to yell at them in public. But so far they haven't taken any action in the absence of action by those institutions. Tech companies just embrace their own roles as institutions, and that's put a lot of attention on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube. Appropriately, I think, but we know how to get out of this mess on its the Congress is going to have to act. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me Casey Newton rights platformer of publication about big tech and democracy..
Violence Erupts Between Trump Supporters, Counter Protesters
"In the nation's capital are accusing the city of failing to protect black residents after a weekend of violence during a pro Trump rally. The president's supporters gathered in Washington, D. C on Saturday that repeated baseless claims that the election was quote stolen and some of them vandalize churches and attacked counter demonstrators. Hannah Shuster from our member station W A. M U has the story. Thousands of mostly mass place trump supporters from all over the country March through downtown D. C that included members of the extremist group, the proud boys. They gathered at Washington landmarks like the Washington Monument and the Supreme Court and listen to speeches from figures like conspiracy theorists Alex Jones and former national security adviser Michael Flynn. And the president's supporters erupted and cheers as he flew overhead on Marine One. Police tried to keep these crowds separate from other DC protesters, some who have been holding racial justice demonstrations for months. But as the night went on, violence broke out and dozens of people were arrested, including a 29 year old, who allegedly stabbed four people. This weekend was the second time since the election that Trump supporters rallied in DC leading to violence, although the crowd was smaller than when they gathered in mid November.

"Hi everybody. Hi guys well from somewhere in Oregon and Salt Lake City Utah. It's thank God I'm atheist the podcast I'm mark and I'm Dan and. Mark Hello pay there now. You're not frank, I'm I'm not anymore. I have emerged like a butterfly from Christmas. From the Frank Shelf Christmas and the Frank. No thanks. That's right Thank you so much for coming on and and help out you you who have helped out here before but are also my co host over on the how do heretic. As much as well as other things I, guess you sure you've in the in the world not that I pay any attention. To the most important stuff Yeah. Unfortunately, I was going out of town and frank was going to have to find a replacement for me. And then, and then frank came down with some horrible apparently non-co vid disease. And and I had to fill in last as far as we know, frank does not have the Rona. Dead. Yeah it seems. It seems as though he is negative though false negatives have occurred in the world. So but anyways, prayers in that seed money coming in. Yes exactly basically, the only way to save him is to is to send us a all of your money. On the television screen, we'll tell you how to do that a later in the program also later in the show you and I are going to have a discussion about persecution privilege. And There's a difference between those two things and points and purpose purpose qwerty. So the four pence perspicacity yeah, which is also Yeah. I anyway, we'll get to all of that later on but in but first, why don't you tell me one of your stories I understand that you've come prepared with with stories to tell the kids you know me I'm already I've got a pocketful of magic for everybody so. This, this will probably relate a little bit to our discussion later in the show. Daniel Okay and this is an older article, but it's been making the rounds again because of reasons. Okay. Yeah. It's an article in the Atlantic by Emma Green and it's about. You know the most most persecuted people in America and those would be. Christians. Of course, they will let me. Let me read a couple of excerpts from the article here in. Many. Many Christians. Believe they are subject to religious discrimination in the United States new report from the Public Religion Research Institute and Brookings. Offers evidence. Almost half of Americans say discrimination against Christians is as big of a problem as discrimination against. Including blacks and minorities. Three quarters of Republicans and trump supporters said this. This article is like a year and a half old. So imagine it's much higher now. And so did nearly eight out of ten White Evangelical Protestants of the latter group six and ten believed that although America wants was a Christian nation, it is no longer a huge jump from twenty twelve. Forty, six percent of those surveyed said immigration from Mexico and Central America has been too high in recent years. Yeah. When asked the same question about immigrants from predominantly Christian countries though only ten percent of people said immigration has been too high. The irony in this is essentially the same question phrase student as Latin American countries are overwhelmingly Christian. Right. All those all those non-catholic Mexicans that are coming over our border. Yeah exactly. Well, who didn't Alex Jones we talk about Alex Jones saying that Mexico was run by a bunch of white shoes at one point but. You know. So Then to kind of conclude. While the US, is still a nation of faith with roughly seventy one percent of adults identifying some kind of Christian. Religious organizations of all kinds are struggling with lower levels of attendance declining participation in ritual practices. More and more people say they're not part of any religion and this is especially true of young people in their twenties and early thirties with you. Guys if religious believable believe their institutions are declining, which demographically speaking they are they may feel more threatened by what they perceive as the growing numbers of people in the country who have a different kind of faith. There's evidence of this in the strongest style. Many people seem to feel for the past and allusive time when Americans felt more of a consensus about their values and beliefs strong majorities. Evangelical Protestants in White Catholics believe America has changed for the worse since the nineteen. Fifties. So off the one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty s Jim crow women knowing their place raging cold war nuclear arms race the good old days as Back Yeah back when we could win when everybody's lives were so much better. So this is a lie that just will not die. Like this Christian persecution complex Oh. My God it is amazing and we're GONNA get to more of it. We're going to expound on later in the show like you alluded to but my God it is. It's astounding at what's really funny is. The Christians believe that it is a due to outside influence that everything's getting so bad. Not at not at all acknowledging that, no dude, the calls coming from inside. Right. He's leaving. You are doing this. Yeah. First of all. It's not true that you're being persecuted but part about right believing. You're doing that. Yeah exactly because you're persecuting. They're not leaving because the world outside of Christianity looks. So enticing your leaving because the world inside of Christianity is a an abusive health gape. Maybe work on that you
Commission cancels second debate between Trump and Biden
"Breaking news today. Over the past 24 hours. We learned that the debate commission has said that the next presidential debates scheduled for next week between Trump and Biden was going all virtual like a zoom. Ah, debate now, Donald Trump saying today as of now, no, I'm not doing that. I want to do it in person. Your initial thoughts on all that's transpired with that in the past 24 hours. Yeah, I mean, as you said, breaking news, and this would really change the game. As Faras debates go. First of all, you can't have a debate with just one person. So Donald Trump is out Joe Biden not standing on that virtual zoom stage, but only with the things that the president said. It's a waste of time. And quite frankly, there are a lot of voters after that first presidential debate that probably agreed with how that format turned out, so no doubt, of course, that the concern the current virus to public health and couldn't get it. A lot of reasons why you may want this one to be virtual, but that's it. And as of this moment the president is not, and it just simply won't happen. You're not going to have a debate with one person on DH, and that might be what we end up with for election 2020. Now, Dr Laura, I'm not trying to be Alex Jones here, but I'll put the tin foil hat on here. It feels like if you have a virtual debate, there's a lot of opportunity for some shenanigans there, Whether it's somebody helping you out. I don't know if there's a teleprompter or cue cards or what's going on. Cutting your mic off if you're interrupting, Touma, right, right. So I would say that, And that was the thing people talk about the first date. Right Zoom call you couldjust knew them. I don't think it's a tinfoil hat. It would change the dynamic and theoretically, you could have notes right up on the prompter. But as you say, and and be able to read from those in one way, I think the candidate would like that. I feel like that would be advantageous to them. But only in terms of what did they offer us as voters and constituents and people watching a part of it. I like it that natural feeling of Yes, they've rehearsed yesterday of practice. Yes, They have some lines in their back pockets and they know the policy but still lifted them up there without this information for 90 minutes, And you do get a better sense of who they are. They need to see in a 30 or 62nd campaign ass. So that is that a standard practice during a debate? I mean, you're you're you're somebody that probably has been in debates teaches how to debate. They're at the University of Indianapolis. Eso When you're at a debate, you're not allowed Tohave notes up there. I saw Kamala Harrison and Mike Pence, writing down notes on a piece of baby You're not allowed to have That's general rules of the game. You're not allowed to have notes up there. Exactly, And so they prepare. Obviously, they practise and rehearse. They memorize that big fact because they know they're gonna come up as the economy is going to come up, But no, you generally the rule there that you can't have those notes, and that's also why you mentioned you see them scribbling as soon as the prompt the moderators. Oh, we're gonna talk about this. I feel like it's completed magnesium and you look at a T a question and you think OK, brain dump. Bring everything I remember from this, So I have that information site from and I do think that's one thing. It was the day for hard debate. Practice hard and doing a good job. Debate is hard and the viewer it's good to come back after a little early, but there's a lot of effort that actually takes place on the back end. What

6 Drivers of Business with Daniel Tardy and Sarah Sloyan
"Over the past few years, coaching, small business owners were in the country. One of the things that I've learned. Is that y'all do not lack intensity folks. Passion is kind of the price of admission. If you WANNA, start a lead and own your own business so I don't doubt your passion, but what I've seen is that the difference maker between business owners that fail and those that succeed is that the ones who succeed the ones who win at the highest level are the ones who have a plan for consistently executing on the things that matter most over an extended period of time, and that begs the question what matters most from the Ramsey network. This is the entreleadership podcast. podcast where we help business leaders grow themselves their teams in their profits. I'm your host Alex Jones and today we get to sit down with two of our senior leaders. Here at Entree Leadership Daniel Tardy, and Sarah slowing and I am so excited because they're going to walk you. The small business owner through the things that we have identified here at Entree leadership matter most for your organization, we call them the six drivers of business success, and if you're going to grow as a leader as a team and as a business, you're going to have to focus on all six of them now six drivers, it sounds super simple, but just like most things it is far from easy. Alex remember the first time that I started learning about business. I started hearing from my dad and my granddad. These different phrases that were busy phrases. You know things like a pnl an income statement. Sales and marketing revenue, and you know. I think businesses such a fascinating world, but it's also really complicated because there's all these words these. These different ways of doing business, and then you get to hear most businesses fail. Crap how they feel. And how do you make sure you don't fail? And you start learning about it and you kind of get excited to explore this this world, but then you also realize it's Pandora's box and adjust keeps going, and there's so much infinity when it comes to what it takes to win in business, and that was the backdrop of what. What I stepped into a leadership role in business for the first time, essentially going there so much here, it's so confusing it so overwhelming I'm going to do my best I got a few things figured out, but I still feel like there's something about blind spot. That's going to take me out and I. Don't really know what to focus on and so. The key with all of this is, we have figured out the business actually. Isn't that complicated? We just make it complicated and we spend a lot of time with Dave with our leadership team, and looking at our journey, and looking at thousands of customers that we've worked with and we've said. What's true with all these businesses? That's making them work. And we figured out as it's really about six simple things that if you'll focus on these six things, you're GonNa win, and you actually don't have to worry about anything else. And so we took this very complicated. Overwhelming space that for people like me tend to feel intimidated with how much complexity there is and go. Let's just put the cookies on the bottom shelf and go. What are we really talking about here? And I know the last time we had a conversation here. We talked about those different stages that we've really realized every small business including our own goes through from the treadmill all the way to the peak performer, and ultimately the legacy builder, and it seems like Sarah that there's kind of like this option of like you can either wander through those stages on your own, or you can follow a guided path, and it seems like the. The Path is the better option for the business owner. I mean it's my preferred option. Just because I feel like if I can get to where I'm wanting to go faster, because someone else has forged the way and can say hey, here are the key milestones. There's a reason why I don't usually take all the back roads when I'm trying to get somewhere. Fast I like all the back roads when I've got the luxury of kind. Kind of you know if I'm just trying to see the sights, but if I'm if my purpose is getting somewhere, then I want to get there. You know as efficiently as possible. So yeah I'd love having kind of a roadmap and signs that I'm on the right path for those things and I would even argue you don't really wonder from the treadmill to the Pathfinder to the trailblazer most people if they don't focus on the six. Six areas. They never actually get off the treadmill. You know so. It's not just a matter of. Do you want to get there faster slow, or do you want to take the long way or the short way? Unfortunately, if you stay on the treadmill and you don't focus on these areas, one of them will become your blind spot or your Achilles heel and cause you to stay on the treadmill so long that eventually you collapsed satistics. Happens with small businesses who stay on the treadmill and it's not even necessarily that the business fails. It's you are then you're lifestyles threaten. Most of these folks start their business for freedom. You know they don't want to answer to other people. They want to go to their kids. Soccer Games they WANNA make money to be able to afford to vacations and if they stay on. On that treadmill. They never actually get to do those things and it's crazy. Sometimes, it's like unfortunately will coincide with business. Owners will meet them when they are sick and tired of being sick and tired, and it's like I'm just so fed up with being trapped by the thing that I built and it sounds like what this path is about. Yes, totally yeah, I mean I. I feel sad when I hear that because I know so many business owners. They believe that there's a better way that's why they started, but use the word feeling trapped by the thing they started. You know and it's very normal for small business owner to end up in that spot where they feel trapped. They feel desperate. They feel hopeless and so our goal with creating this framework and observing and researching. What does it really take to win and business is to take that business owner who's feeling trapped and starting to wonder if they have what it takes and give them a clear guided plan that says if you'll just focus on these things you're gonNA. GonNa win because what happens. Is that business owners starts thinking. They're the problem and they don't have what it takes. They're not cut out for it in the truth is like they probably are a lot better than they feel like they are. They just need a clear plan so that if they follow the plan, they combine that with their driving their ingenuity, and then they're off to the races and
