Trump's Attorney Alina Habba Talks 1st Amendment Rights Violations
"He is, Dan Bongino. All right, I should have told you about it in the last segment, but I'm really happy to have a guest. I want to get right to her because she's kind of tight on time right now. One of Donald Trump's attorneys, you've seen her on TV, on Fox and elsewhere doing a great job defending President, former President Trump. Alina Haba. Alina, thanks for spending some time with us. I know you were on a long line here, so we appreciate it. Of course, anything for you, Dan. Thanks for having me. You're the best. It was great seeing you UFC, at the by the way. But let me get right to it. Mark Levin put out a great tweet the other day. I just tweeted it about all of the rights President Trump doesn't seem to have in what we thought was a constitutional public. Let's go through them one by one. I mean, you guys don't seem to have First Amendment rights, Alina. These gag orders for a man who is the leading and likely Republican nominee for president while he's running for president and being attacked on the police state running against the police state seem like their political orders and not effective judicial legal ones. Well, that's right. That's 100 % right. And then if you had any question about it, we had to take the last one where they actually gagged me as well as the president and said that I couldn't even make objections in court. I couldn't make objections in court where my job is to object, is to protect the president. I was gagged. And the fact is we took it up to the appellate division. We won. We had it stayed. And now we've submitted papers explaining how completely unconstitutional it is to take anybody's First Amendment right. Political speech is overtly protected on a higher level than anything else. And they are trying to take the leading candidate's voice away and they're trying to take his lawyer's voice away,

Trump Files Motion for Mistrial in Civil Fraud Case
"The city and state of New York. They've used a statute, as Fox has reported, that's never been used ever against anybody else. And why? Because the statute's unconstitutional. And why is that? There's no victim. There's no complainant. So the case is really a case about Letitia and this judge in Iran. Deciding for themselves cherry -picking information on whether the assessments that were used, the valuations, and getting loans from certain banks, meet the standard that Letitia James and this judge Arthur and Garan think they should have met. No, they don't. No victim, no complainant. Not a single bank has testified against Trump. They're all paid back on time without delay. These banks are big with big law firms. The legal documents stated by Trump's lawyers and his documents not to rely on the valuations provided by the Trump organization. You're free and transparently make so your to own valuations and make your own decisions. So there is no fraud. There's no misconduct. The victim, well actually the only victim is Trump and his family. Thank you. And so they've appealed. And so the legal experts say it's going to be tough to appeal arguing that there's a mistrial. Oh really? Well the judge is a hack who ruled against Trump before he and his lawyers even walked in the courtroom. He ruled on the papers before he heard a word of testimony. And his conduct during the course of the trial, he was clamish. He was preening for the camera. The reason his law clerks sitting to his right

"Please tell your reps in Congress to pass without delay, clean funding supplemental for Ukraine. Yeah, yeah, go ahead. Oh, because no, I really hope this is something you know, the Ukraine in general has gotten sidelined because of the distractions in the Middle East, which are obviously crazy. It also helps him caused by Putin. And then we have this this insane political reality in the US. So decisions are not made in any way that you could describe as rational. In the meantime, Ukraine's needs are getting pushed the to back the burner. And I really think it's important for all of us communicate US. Your offices congressional and let them know that it's very simple. Please go ahead and support the funding package that's for his defense. It's got to happen and we got to make sure that the Congress knows that people out here care about that. Yeah. And so this is something an action that people could take that could make a difference. it seems to me, Doc, we're also fighting, you know, propaganda here. And this one you retweeted from Russia, you know, abusive thug and Russian state TV propagandist Igor Markov continues pushing liquidate Ukraine narrative, adding, look what you made me do spin as abusers tend to do, saying you have no choice but to commit genocide is incitement to genocide. You know, and I was I was just I it is so despicable here, Doc, how I guess we shouldn't be surprised at anything on Fox. But so Fox business host Maria Bartiromo, who of course cost her network billions of dollars on the Dominion voting, big lie, you know, stuff. Let's see, she, she started raising questions about the release of Abby, you know, little the girl that was the Israeli American that was finally released by Hamas, who she was held hostage after watching her parents be murdered by Hamas on October 7. She, she expressed concerns that the toddlers family's connections to President Biden may have been the reason she got out any other American before any other American hostages being held by Hamas. She said, we learned that her family is major donors for President Biden, and that her aunt actually bought Hunter Biden's art. So what is she saying? She's hopes, disappointed that Abby that we got a four year old back, or I mean, almost everybody gives money to somebody right makes political contributions. So she's saying what they should have held continue to hold this four year old say because her family might have donated to I mean, and you know, here we go again with implying Biden corruption, because we got a four year old out. I'm telling you, if gets like twisted this, it's impossible. You can't even have a discussion with people who are so absurdly conspiratorial that there's sort of nothing to say that will change the opinions or the statements of people like her. And you know, it's, this is what I'm talking about. You know, she's, she's part of this. Biden is evil. And our, our holy leader Trump is who we need to follow and everything she says speaks to that that little narrative and I, we're just going to have to figure out how to get around it or hope that the people that fall at Stephanie, this is the thing are not as numerous as we might think. And I'm aware of what the polls are, but when it comes right down to it, I guess my hope, I don't think it's totally crazy. My hope is that it turns out there won't be that many people who can ignore the one indictments of, uh, of Donald Trump, his corruption, his misogyny and all the other insanity that he's, that he's capable of. Uh, no, I don't know what you think, but I, I'm hoping that the number is some fraction of what the polls are showing. Yeah. Um, ukrainecap .org. We link to it as always to support the docs.

How Do You Know If You're Living in a Police State?
"State mayor. Police state. How do you know? Well, I can tell you there's a pretty definitive sign in a constitutional republic or a representative democracy of some form. You do not investigate people. You investigate crimes in search of people, correct? People tend to overcomplicate what police a state is. We did a whole movie on it, but we kept it simple. You investigate crimes in a constitutional republic, and then you go and look for the people who did those crimes in a police state. You investigate people and you go and look for crimes. Oh, Miss Perkins attempted to revoke the security clearance of this employee and ordered her investigators to canvas 10 police departments where the employee lived for any allegations of violations of the law. Sounds like they're looking for person a in search of a crime, does it not? Folks, this has to stop. I'm gonna tell you, one of the more kind of devastating moments of my life in this space, and I mean it, I'm not being hyperbolic or overly dramatic dramatic about it is I was in an airport flying up to New York. I think I was doing the five fox or and friend, don't matter, but I'm in the airport and I get a call and a friend of mine says, you're never gonna believe this. He says, people in the Ukrainian embassy were watching your social media stuff, likely on government time, and monitoring your activity because you're exposing all this corruption going on in Ukraine that I was writing about in my last book. I said, no, they said, yeah, we're going to get a, we're going to for you this and you're going to see if they were right. Now folks, the stuff they were watching was public. I'm, you know, they, from what I least know, they at didn't have access to my private emails and things like that or the direct messages. But I got to tell you it was pretty scary stuff. I don't mean frightened, like a coward, like a little puppy. I was, it's frightening in an anxiety producing way that your government simply because you expose their corruption is busy watching what you're tweeting about and not doing their actual government assign work. You're like, where the hell am I living, the Soviet Union? Now in case you think it can't get any worse the police state ladies and gentlemen, it already has You sensing a pattern by the way according to this story about who the FBI was allegedly targeting.

Kari Lake's "Road to Damascus" Moment
"It's sad. I see it now. We hate it. The Kerry, I gotta tell you, that's what I told you at Mar -a Lago, we're talking to Kerry Lake, run for US Senate in Arizona. This is why we just don't do guessing, because I just hate politicians. I just do. They always lie to me, they come on the show, they say some crap. They had one guy I run it for Congress, he got elected, a friend asked me, seemed like a decent guy. He goes there and he votes against Jim Jordan, because he wanted assaulting. I'm like, I'm done. But I've known you for a while. You strike me as a very candid person. I want to bring something up, because I think it'll help you and me both. Every time I mention your name, someone fires back. It's usually from primary opponent. I get it, but still, I'd like you to address it. They say, well, she was in the media, don't I trust her, she could be a lib. I'm not your defender, you don't need it, you can do it yourself. But my take back to them has always been, they make the best conservatives. If they're running as conservatives, they obviously had some road to Damascus moment where they're like, holy crap, these people really suck. So if you would address that, I'd really appreciate it. I'd be happy to, and I have many times before. You know, I talk about growing up an hour away from President Reagan in his hometown, my hometown in his an hour away, obviously a few decades apart, Dan, but he was my original childhood hero. And he's the reason I registered as a Republican when I turned 18. But when I was a mother, first became a mother, I had two babies back to back. And that's all when the wars started and I looked at George W. Bush and I said, gosh, our Republican party has just become a party that wants to start endless wars. And it was only because of that when McCain ran and, of course, had covered him by then a couple of a couple of decades. And I knew this wasn't going to be the guy to end these endless wars. And so that's why I took a chance on an outsider. And obviously we didn't have a lot of good choices. And he turned out to be a nightmare, an absolute nightmare. But I have always been a fair and honest journalist. I think you you ask people I've interviewed, I had a 30 year career, 27 years covering Arizona. And I don't know many people who walk away from their dream job. I walked away from a seven figure contract, walked away from my dream job. Number one in the ratings on a roll, had been number one for 22 years, by the way, at the Fox station. And I walked away from all of that because I looked at journalism and realized it had become nothing more than propaganda. And this was during COVID. And I don't know many people who would have the courage to walk away from that kind of money, that kind of a career like I did. And I did that because I care more about our First Amendment, our Constitution, and our country. And I'm not willing to sacrifice my reputation, use my voice and my heart to spread lies.
A highlight from The Debate Recap Part One
"Good morning, Gloria America. Bonjour, hi, Canada. I'm Hugh Hewitt, back inside the Beltway, live inside my studio. I'm so glad to be back with you. I want to thank Morgan Ortegas, who filled in for me four out of the seven days I was off the air. Jenna Lisimo, of course, Dwayne Patterson, two days, and Ed Morrissey, one day. All superb professionals, and I just greatly appreciate their allowing me to dive deep into the debate prep that went on in New York, in Washington, and of course in Miami. My thanks to my NBC colleagues at the table, Lester Holt and Christian Welker, who co -moderated with me in the debate. I have some preliminary thoughts on it, and I will get back to those, but I do not want to hazard guesses about what it was like or what it seemed like, because from inside a debate, it's not really what other people see. I got home last night. The fetching Mrs. Hewitt tells me that TikTok was running ads during the debate, even as I was asking the candidates about TikTok. Some memorable things, and I will sort it out, and by Tuesday, I'll be talking to you about it. Today is the day we celebrate Veterans Day. I'm live inside the studio, but most of the next 90 minutes, beginning at the bottom of the hour and into the next hour, will be interviews with recovering wounded veterans of the long wars, as I annually salute the Semper Fi Fund and America's Fund and ask you to consider contributing to it, to help in the recovery and rehabilitation of people who are wounded defending this country, and I will not depart from that tradition, but we're going to break it into portions today and portions on Monday, because Veterans Day is tomorrow, and some people are celebrating today and thanking veterans around them today, and some are doing that on Monday. So, I'm going to do it on both days, but first, let me give you the news overnight. The advance of Israel deep into Gaza is approaching the outskirts of the Shifa Hospital. That hospital, as well as the Rantisi Hospital, are allegedly over the command and control headquarters of Hamas, and so the going is going to be very tough. It's going to be very, very brutal. I remind you as well that there are 240 Israelis and other nationalities being held throughout Gaza, by the kidnappers of 10 -7, and those monsters are releasing photos to terrorize the people of Israel as their troops move forward, the IDF moving very slowly, very methodically. Last night, former, excuse me, current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was on Fox with Brett Baer. This is what he had to say, cut number one. I think the Israeli army is performing exceptionally well. It's fighting the terrorists, both above ground and below ground, doing everything in our power to reduce civilian casualties. We've managed safe zones and safe corridors so civilians can heed our call to leave, even though Hamas is trying to keep them in. And I think the war is proceeding well. We're going to continue until we eradicate Hamas. Nothing will stop that. We're absolutely committed to victory, which is not only our victory, but it's the victory of the entire civilized world against barbarism.
A highlight from BlackRock Bitcoin ETF in January | Larry Fink Is Confident
"All right, so things are cooking in the market right now, Bitcoin, Ethereum, what we're doing and watching with Solana. We'll break down a lot of things for you guys today, but it's all going to be built around the narrative of the ETF, when and how much of an impact it will have on the markets. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back to The Tech Path. All right. A couple of posts we'll get into. I want to kind of flow along here. There's going to be a lot happening today. Before I get started, I want to thank our sponsor, and that is iTrust Capital, if you guys are looking at long -term holding. In an IRA, this is one of the places to check out. You can hold Bitcoin over there, precious metals, altcoins, all sorts of things. It's all self -directed over there, very easy to use. All you have to use is our link down below. Get a $100 funding reward if you decide to go in on that. Low fees too on your transactions inside, no fees on a monthly. So just think about that. Let's go over to a couple of tweets here. I want to start off with Mike Allred, or Alfred. Mike had a very interesting tweet here, and I follow this guy. I would say he's a Bitcoiner, and he had a really good position point here on the first of November. FOMC press conference over, Jerome is off stage. Markets are not following the familiar script of dumping through the close. This is the turning point. Yields will fall, the dollar will top, and Bitcoin and equities will rip through the year end. Basically, Mike called it, and I think he's exactly right, what we did see in terms of yields starting to fall. In fact, we saw a fairly significant jump down in yields. If you look at what Joe Consorti was talking about, this is a good example, people are losing faith in US creditworthiness even after the 10 -year yield has fallen by 51 bips. So that to me is some of these nuances that happen in the traditional markets that start to move things around. It also starts to loosen up capital on the sidelines, and that's what you're watching right now. Then if you look at the comparison of where things are going around Bitcoin, because some people are saying Bitcoin could make it to 50K, and part of this will look at, of course, the ETF, the likelihood of getting an ETF before the end of the year. Even though our friends at Bootbar still believe that that's like a 70 % probability, I feel like this is probably going to roll into that January 10th date, and when it does, I think that is the key. Now, what does that mean between now and then? I think that is the big question for sure. Fox Biz says BlackRock is growing increasingly confident in the spot Bitcoin ETF approval by January. Listen, they're having conversations with the SEC, there's a lot of back and forth dealing with this. Ed Gasparino talking about this. Everybody on Wall Street is talking about this. If this does not happen, this would be one of the biggest fails, I think, on Wall Street in combination with the SEC, maybe that we've ever seen in the history of Wall Street. Other things to be watching for, and this is something that Seifert and I talked about the other day when he was on. Just in, French investment bankers receive an email from BlackRock promoting a webinar for their iShares that swap ETF products on November 15th. This is within eight days of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval window. This is something that Seifert and I talked about, Bloomberg analysts, and the questions that have kind of been brewing is that there's been a lot of advertising, they're called RFPs, and if you're in the media business, you know what that is, but there's been a lot of RFPs coming in asking about certain windows of time and how quickly you can activate ads. This to me, what is it? Because normally this is a year -end kind of thing, and year -end, sure, there could be a scenario where people are just blowing the rest of a budget that they've already allocated, but these seem to be very targeted and very specific, and when you get those kinds of RFPs, which we've received, then I'm always questioning, what are they looking for? What exactly is going on? That usually tells me there's a campaign brewing, and what else is out there right now that could be brewing in terms of campaigns when it comes down to marketing, just like Seifert said, there's going to be a marketing bloodbath of who's going to try to position first, whether it's BlackRock, 21 shares, Fidelity, all the ones that we have out there in terms of the spot ETF. Here's another topic on Bitcoin. Here's how high Bitcoin could soar in the first year of its bull cycle. There's a course coming in from Michael Van de Poppe. A couple of things he's pointing to right here, we're getting ourselves into a period of the first year of the bull cycle, means that most likely we're going to see a high of around 50 to 55K. I would agree with that to a certain extent. There are some things, if you're not in our diamond circle, our most recent post where Evan and I actually did two analyses on this. Evan did an analysis on the TA side. We did an analysis on the sentiment side. Looking at the long -term sentiment run of Bitcoin in general, especially if you look at how it compares to other assets, and you compare that to new activity, meaning new people talking about a particular investment like Bitcoin, it's starting to ramp up. So does that mean that we could be seeing entry -level participants or people that haven't been active for a very long time coming back in the space, which could contribute to these kind of numbers in terms of 50 to 55K? We're also going to have a period where we have the altcoins are starting to wake up substantially. Obviously, I think everybody's watching Solana, Matic, Avalanche today. Those are all altcoins, and they're all in a very positive mode right now. And of course, Ethereum clipped over 2100. Most likely, we could see a 22 by weekend. So there's a lot happening there. Question will be, in between, are we going to see altcoins do really well? And we're starting to see some momentum. Will that last? And does it act like a typical altcoin season? That's the question mark that I think a lot of people are trying to compare, because if you look at past cycles versus this one and the one we possibly are moving into coming out of a bear market, a lot of people look at it in a different way because of all this new speculation around ETFs, regulation, structured capital, the coming of age of this asset class, all those things that did not exist in the last run between 2019 and 21. So at this point, confirmation of the bear market is over almost close to 100%, especially with the breakout of 28K. That was the one that basically held the 200 -week EMA. So definitely moving forward for sure.
A highlight from Michael Saylor: Mainstream Bitcoin Awareness is EXPLODING | EP 865
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin. It's going up forevermore. Bitcoin! You're against Bitcoin, you're against freedom. Yo, welcome to another episode of Simply Bitcoin Live, your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution, color -breaking news, culture, medic warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state. Anyways, Michael Saylor is just, he's just taking it all in. He's having a victory, victory dance right now. He's up on his Bitcoin investment. I saw a tweet the other day, did you guys know that every thousand dollars Bitcoin goes up in price? The Michael Saylor's Bitcoin investment goes up like 158 million dollars. It's just some like absurd amount like that. So yes, Michael Saylor is vindicated and more importantly, we're going to play you guys a clip today where he's making the case that we've been making for this last week, really for the last couple of weeks, that Bitcoin awareness is going mainstream. You're seeing that. You're seeing that when Natalie Burnell, we played you guys the clip on yesterday's episode, where she went on Fox Business and she's literally saying how Bitcoin is the money of peace and fiat is the money of war, how Bitcoin gives the opportunity to the younger generations and millennials and the Gen Z -ers and she's saying this on legacy mainstream media, right? So yeah, I completely agree with with Saylor, Bitcoin is going mainstream. It is the legal tender of a nation state, of a country. And I think that in the next cycle, there's going to be so many public companies, there's going to be so many countries, they're going to be looking at what Michael Saylor is doing and looking at what Naeem Bukhale is doing and just come to the inevitable conclusion that, OK, the Bitcoin strategy is obviously superior. It's obviously the way to go, right? So anyways, very, very exciting times. We are ending the week with a bullish episode, but in the montage as well, I added some other things because I can't just be full, you know, bulltard all the time. We are going to talk about CBDCs and digital IDs that they're planning to roll out in Europe and all over the world. Make no mistake. And you're seeing the attacks by governments, you know, the CyUp attack by Elizabeth Warren and co -intermedia allies to try to shove down the throats of Americans, these crazy, insane proposals by the FinCEN that would basically make it like look down upon for you to use a single use Bitcoin wallet address, which is like by default, that's how they work. Right. So like, obviously, you can make the case that there was more sinister intentions when they made these crazy proposals, right? So anyways, you don't call it the separation of money and state for no reason. That's exactly what we're living through, ladies and gentlemen. And the way that you protect yourself through all this chaos, all this madness, the great disintermediation is by taking self -custody of your Bitcoin. Anyways, everybody, no more delay. I want to bring up my legendary co -host. He is optimistic today. He must have spent the night with Chrissy. How are you doing? No, I did not stop spreading fake news, Niko. I'm doing well, man. It's Friday. It's Friday. What's up, everyone? Hope you guys are going to have a good weekend. And then I have to I have to off the rip combat something you said, Niko, I stay bulltarded, always stay bulltarded. This is the way. Always stay bullish. But of course, be conservative and make sure people don't get wrecked out there. That's that's always some good wisdom. And before we go on, guys, we apologize for starting a little bit late. I see some people complaining, you know, we had to take care of some business, had to deal with some technical issues to get our guests on point today. Like, hey, we do our best to make sure we're on time. So forgive us, guys. We don't do it often. I get it. You know, we will respect your time. We love you guys. It is what it is. Sometimes we're a little late, you know. Hey, we love you. We love you. But there's things that happen that are outside of our control. Anyways, on that note, let's bring in our guests. Shouts out to Tony Miltenberger, a Bitcoiner. And I think he's going to drop some wisdom on us about connecting the dots and inflation today in the culture. So I'm excited for this one. You know, we love to spread that wisdom and try to get our minds right when we have these conversations with our Normie friends and family and everyone out there that tells us we're wrong. Anyways, Tony, how are you doing this morning? Very good. Thank you very much for having me on the show and happy Veterans Day. Let's go. So it's and it's Friday, so let's make it a good one. Absolutely. It is Friday. It is Friday after all for 100 percent. We have made it through the week. Let's finish it. Let's finish it off very, very strong. All right, everybody, no more delay. Let's jump straight into the numbers.

Oh no, that was Bryan Adams, but we had a great time. Coming up on this podcast, I'm gonna do an NBA Power Poll at the top because there's no games as I'm taping this on Tuesday. So let's, where are we after two weeks? I tried to fly through this. I limited myself to 22 minutes. I think I went two minutes over, but I flew through it, tried to get off as many comments as I possibly could. And then our old friend Malcolm Gladwell is gonna come on and do some sports hour stuff. There's some things that he's noticed about direction sports are going in that he doesn't like, and we're gonna try to fix it. So that's the podcast, first, our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, I'm gonna throw an NBA Power Poll at you. I'm not sure I'm gonna do this every Tuesday, but I definitely wanna do this some Tuesdays. I'm gonna go through all 30 teams as fast as possible. And I'm gonna throw things out that I feel like are important when necessary. Pot shots, important comments, things I've noticed, some fake trades, you've known me for a while. It's gonna be all the typical stuff. Going backwards from 30 to one, I'll give you the groups as we go. The first group is called the Dregs. That's Washington number 30. They are 30th in defense. And the only reason they're 30th in defense is because we only have 30 teams. I actually think there's some way they could have been 36th in defense. They're the only team in the entire league that I do not wanna watch on league pass for any reason at all. They're one and five, 15 .6 point differential against them. Shoot this team into the sun. I cannot believe House thought this team was gonna go over 24 wins. They might not go over 14 wins. They're awful. I never want them on my TV. Next group, probably the lottery. I say probably, but I'm gonna zip through these teams and then go back to somebody. 29 Utah, 28 Portland, 27 Detroit, 26 San Antonio, 25 Charlotte, who is way more fun than I expected they would be to watch, and 24 Chicago. It just feels like the lottery's in the future for all these teams. I wanna talk about San Antonio really quick. Three and four, kind of a sneaky, tough schedule. They played Phoenix twice, the Clippers, Dallas, that goofy Indiana team, Houston, and Toronto. They're minus 8 .6 point differential because they've gotten blown out a couple of times, and they're 29th on defense, which I was surprised by per 100 possessions. The thing that I wanted to point out here, because this one Benyama thing is super important. This is the best teenager that's come into the league, at least since LeBron. We can debate. LeBron, I think in year two, for two months at least, was a teenager when he was putting up 27, seven, and seven. When he started his 27, seven, seven cycle. Wembe might be the best teenager I've ever seen. They're starting Jeremy Sohan at point guard, and Pop's been transparent about this. No, no, we know we're gonna take some lumps. We're trying to figure this out. I went to the game when they played the Clippers, I talked about it in a previous pod, and it was just an absolute debacle, watching poor Sohan try to run the offense, bring the ball up. Now we're seeing teams starting to pressure them because he's not a point guard. He's a small forward. There's crazy stats now. Trey Jones, just by being on this team and not being Jeremy Sohan, is now one of the best advanced metrics point guards of all time. Right now, his per 100 on -off is plus 28 .3 because Sohan is minus 22 .7. That's how disparate the two things are. Which brings me to my point, this is too important. You have the best teenager maybe ever. You have one of the best league pass players already in the entire league in Wimby. I have no idea how long he's gonna stay healthy, knock on wood, hear me knock really loud. I just got my dog going. No, that was me, dumb ass. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is on Indiana, and they have Halliburton, who's averaging a 24 -12. He's awesome. They have Nembhard, who's great as a backup. McConnell's like, he's 13 minutes a game. He's clearly a trade piece for them. Just go get him. I'm not saying San Antonio has to make the playoffs, but they need to be entertaining, and Wimby needs to play with point guards. He clearly needs just to play off people, high screens, all that stuff. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is my choice. They have all their own firsts. They're not gonna trade those obviously, but they have some goofy picks. They have Charlotte's top 14 protected first. They have a pretty good Chicago first that I wouldn't give up. They have a first swap with Boston. There's ways to do this. I would just put that Charlotte pick next year on the table and just grab them because you guys hit the lottery. Literally, with Wimby -Dyama, literally hit the lottery. You hit the lottery and you hit the lottery. Get to do two point guards. We're not asking for much here. I wanna watch this guy. I wanna enjoy him play basketball. All right, next section is panic time. Number 23, Memphis. They're one and six. They finally got out to Schneider. And number 22, Sacramento, who lost twice to Houston in three days by 18 and 25. No Darren Fox for either game. Panic time in this respect. I know we're six games in the season, seven games in the season, but the West is one of those things where you're gonna look up and the car is left. The car has left the driveway and your family is gone. You're gonna be basically Kevin and home alone if you don't get your shit together. And I don't even wanna be two games under 500 in the West. That's how deep and good the West is. So when you're one and six, like all of a sudden two and 12, two and 13, Sacramento could all of a sudden be three and nine. I would just be nervous constantly. This is not like last year when the Lakers started out two and 10 and ended up making the playoffs. Nobody is doing that this year. The cutoff line is gonna be 46 wins. Memphis looks, they just can't score. And I think it's gonna be really, we talked about this verno last week. It's gonna be really hard for them to crawl back and be at least like 11 and 14, something like that by the time Ja comes back. The Sacramento thing, we predicted this when we did the over -under preview, like the conference is way better and they stayed basically the same. And now Fox is hurt. So it can take Fox going out for 10 games and all of a sudden you're not even in the playing game. I would just be nervous, so it's both of those teams. Again, it's early. Next group, friskier than we hoped. We have number 21, Brooklyn. Ben Simmons averaging almost 11 rebounds and seven assists a game. And yet you can't play him at crunch time, bizarre. Number 20, Orlando. Number 19, Houston. Number 18, Indiana. And number 17, Toronto. Just quickly on Houston, a delightful league pass team. I had no idea. It's like being at a buffet dinner and somebody brings like some, have you ever had a fried oyster? It's like, great, I'll try that. And then it's delicious. They play hard. I like watching them. And I did not expect a Shungun to be a potential all -star, but that's where we are. They're three and three. Again, they beat Sacramento twice, we'll see. But Orlando at number 20. Every time I do this, I'm gonna have a BS all -star of the week. I used to do this when I wrote my column back in the day. I used to call them the Bill Simmons all -stars, just people that I just liked for whatever reason. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't really know fully what he is. He tries harder than everybody on every other team. He really gives a shit. He feels additive in all these different ways. And yet at the same time, he'll absolutely like airball a three in one of the biggest moments of the game. But that guy cares. I watched a game where he got this hustle rebound. Can't remember who they, they lost at the buzzer. Get this hustle rebound and dribble back out and took a three and missed it and put his jersey over his head for like the next minute and a half. I actually think he might've been crying. He was so upset they lost. He is the most competitive random guy in the league. I love Jalen Suggs. Oh, as Saruti said, it's the Laker game. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't know what he is. He might just end up being like a seventh man on a championship team at some point. He's gonna have a moment on a good team. I don't know if Orlando's gonna be the team, but it's gonna happen for that dude. I also really like Anthony Black more than I thought, but we'll see. It's early for this team. Palo hasn't gotten going. Somehow they're four and three. We'll see when the schedule gets harder. Toronto at number 17, just the Lakers miss Schroeder. And I like what Schroeder's doing in Toronto. They're three and four, but they easily could be five and two. I've been watching them because I have their over under, I bet on. And I like where Toronto's at. I think they're better than they were last year. I think they're at least a playing team. Number 18, Indiana though. So their second in offensive rating and 25th in defense. In the 25th, I was actually surprised it wasn't worse. They can't guard anybody. They're shooting 43s a game. Their top six guys are all over 40 % three point shooting. They're kind of like the 80s Nuggets, but with threes. And they just play with a certain pace. And some days it's going to be bad. Like the Celtics put 155 points on them and it probably could have been 160 if they'd made some shots. Hal Burton's special. He's a 24 -12 this year. But the crazy thing about their offense is that Matherin's been terrible. And Matherin was a guy that they were like, this is going to be our guy. He's making a leap. We're going to trade Buddy Heald. We got to give the card keys to Matherin in that spot. And he's been bad. And their offense has still been pretty good. This is a team that anytime you see them, I don't know if you bet basketball, but if they're like plus 11, plus 12, it's like they could beat anybody any night. I'm just telling you. I'm not saying they're going to win a round in the playoffs, but just night to night, that's a team that they could just go 22 for 45 from three, make some shots. And Hal Burton, they actually should be five and two. Hal Burton blew the last possession against Charlotte the other night. But I've enjoyed watching them. I've watched an insane amount of basketball, by the way. All right, next group, the wildcards. I don't have a lot to say about these teams, but we'll go in order. Number 16, New Orleans, just seem jinxed. I'll come back to them in a second. Number 15, Cleveland. I want to see them with Garland and just, I want to watch them for a couple of weeks. I like the Struce edition, but we'll see. The Knicks, they're three and four. Nice win against the Clippers. The Randall thing continues to be nuts. Now he's taking out guys in the other team. Clippers 13, just traded for Harden. We talked about the Knicks and Clippers last week. Look, the Clippers, they played one game and they got killed by the Knicks. They're worse. I told you that last week. Still feel that way. Guess what they can't do now? Any transition stuff. The Knicks, 26 to six in fast break points last night. Rebounding. They got out, rebounded by 17 by the Knicks. Harden just brings so many things that you don't want in a starting five, but then he brings the great passing and the scoring and he can have the ball all the time. They don't need anyone to have the ball all the time because they have all these other guys who need the ball. I just don't like the trade. I continue to not like it and I don't understand it. I actually liked the team they had before they made the trade. So congrats again, Clippers. Number 12, Miami. 28th offensively. Kind of feels worse when you watch them. They haven't had their full team for a couple weeks. I'm not gonna judge them at all until December. I'm not gonna judge Dallas either. Dallas I have at number 11. They're six and one, fourth in offense. They've had a really easy schedule. So that's why, let's see what happens. Their one loss is to Denver. Let's see what happens when they play some tough teams all in a row and have one of those four games in six nights or three on the road. One of those situations. But they are in better shape than they were last year. And you look at the Grant Williams piece, which I'm not spiteful when I watch my old players. I'm rooting for Grant Williams. It's like seeing somebody you dated that you still have a good relationship with. It was nice to see him do well for them. Derek Lively seems like they have something. We talked about him last week, but he's at least like a rim runner in that kind of Nick Claxton world, but maybe a little more violent alley -oop or a little young Clint Cappelli. The Kyrie thing is the piece that I'm really interested in this. He finally had a good game last night, but for this season, 24 % shooting, 3 .8 free throws a game, which are always the two numbers to look at with Kyrie. What's he shooting threes? Is he getting in the line? And so far it's been neither, but he seems happy. When you watch them, they've been a surprisingly pleasant watch, and he seems like in a good spot. So I don't want to jinx it because as annoying as he's been over the years, and you know my stance on Kyrie, I just don't trust him. And I just feel like a seven -year track record of imploding kind of has to start to mean something after a while, but it is fun to watch him play basketball. And it does feel like he's got a specific spot on this team. They don't have to rely on him too much. It's very similar to where he was in 15 and 16 and 17 with the Cavs where he could kind of float in and out like a cat with LeBron. It's like, I'm feeling it. Oh, all right, let's give Kyrie the ball. The shooting going down though, it's a small sample size, but they also haven't been playing tough teams yet. And I'm just monitoring that because with guards, it can kind of sometimes go sideways pretty fast, and you don't realize it happened until after it happened. Just quickly going backwards to number 16, New Orleans, because they lost Ingram, they lost McCollum already. And they have this Hawkins who they drafted that everybody liked coming out of the draft, but the fact that he can play right away has actually kind of saved them a little bit. I just, I still feel like we need to do some sort of ceremony or something with them. Like we need the people from the Conjuring to just do something with New Orleans basketball. It just shouldn't be this bad every year. Your team shouldn't have two, three major injuries every year. You should have good luck at some point. And this goes back to the seventies. Remember, when they moved, when they became the New Orleans Jazz, their first major, major giant trade was for Gail Goodrich with the Lakers. They had to give up two first rounders, and he immediately blew out his Achilles. He played, I'm gonna say, less than a season. And one of the picks turned out to be Magic Johnson. So that's where we started with New Orleans, and it's been awful ever since. Nothing good has happened in this team other than they've won a couple of lotteries, but even the lotteries they won, the Davis, Anthony when they were in Charlotte before they got to New Orleans, they bring him to New Orleans and he wants to leave. And then they win the Zion thing, which seemed like the luckiest thing that ever happened to them. And meanwhile, we're still waiting for him to play two straight months. So Conjuring people, something. We need something to happen with that team. All right, the top 10. We're at a good pace right now. Where are we at? Yeah, feeling good. This is working. Young and hungry is the next thing. We got Oklahoma City at number 10 and Atlanta at number nine. If you remember, Atlanta was one of the, these are the two teams I was going nuts for before the season for their over -unders. I love the Atlanta over -under. I love the New Orleans over. And I like what I've seen from both. OK sees four and three, Atlanta's four and three. Atlanta's sixth in offense. And that's notable because Trae Young has sucked again shooting west. He's 28 % from three. Last year's 33 % from three. This might not be happening the next Steph Curry thing. Like what age does he have to hit where we have to go? All right, he's not the next Steph Curry. Because I think I hit that age last year at age, when I was age 53. I think I hit that for Trae. They killed Minnesota, which is notable. We'll talk about Minnesota in a second. But they really, I watched that game and they really, really, really handled them. I like this Atlanta team. And I think there's a path for them to be a three or a four seed if Trae can get going. And then OKC, trade for a big already. You're a guy short, like stop. You guys have a chance to be like a 50 win team. What are you doing? I want to see what's going on with Josh Getty in about two weeks. Whether it looks different than it has for the first couple of weeks here. I don't like, he's not going in the free throw line at all. 1 .3 a game. 26 % three point shooting, which we knew. He can't shoot threes. But there's also like the Chet piece of it. Seems like it's throwing them off. And I've watched games where they've taken them out at crunch time.
Sean Hannity Sits Down With Ron DeSantis AGAIN
"Intrigued by Hannity's continual interviewing of Ron DeSantis on Fox News Trump's got to hate that you know I don't I haven't talked to Sean in a long time Sean and and President Trump are said to be very good friends wonder how that works you know Trump doesn't like that I'd be intrigued to know anyway once again DeSantis was on with Hannity last night and Sean asked some tough questions about Trump's soaring poll numbers as Trump is being threatened with losing his entire business operation in New York as this vicious Letitia James is suing him in a civil courtroom Sean was asking Governor DeSantis what do you make of Trump's rising poll numbers now unlike Chris Christie who has gone full you know Andre the giant there's something fascinating about this answer that Governor DeSantis gave Sean last night check this out well look I think when that when that Alvin Bragg case came down I mean it was just so transparently ridiculous it would go back seven or eight years clearly this would not have been brought for non -political reasons and so I think that he got a lot of sympathy you know as a result of that in particular maybe some of the others too but I think that one really just showed just how ridiculous quite frankly the justice system has become when it's in the hands of leftist politicians and leftist activists but you know what we're seeing here in Iowa is you know clearly former presidents got got a base of support you also have a base of people who are definitely looking elsewhere but then the bulk of the people considering are the former president but also considering others some of them are polling for him now some of them are not but there is I think more much more fluidity than what some of the national media wants to do and I think the people on the ground here see that there's a lot of people that just have not made a final decision I think the majority of Iowans will probably make a final decision as we get into early January and I'd say the same thing goes for the people of New Hampshire now you know the criticism of Ron DeSantis the rub against Ron DeSantis is that he's not warm he's not likeable he doesn't have much charisma he's kind of bland I'll tell you what he is at least politically he's brilliant
A highlight from SEC GARY GENSLER CALLED OUT FOR CRYPTO FAILURES!!
"The SEC is having trouble hiring crypto experts, you don't say? And SEC Commissioner Mark Ueda is calling out the agency on their lack of rules and regulations around the crypto industry. Also the UK has released their staple coin regulation ban, and a bunch of NFT goers at the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT convention went blind? Let's break it down. Welcome to the Thinking Crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. Well folks, we've got a report here from Jeff Roberts, who is a crypto editor at Fortune magazine. He said the SEC is having trouble hiring crypto experts because of a rule they must sell all their crypto. He said, would make more sense to allow staff to hold a modest amount. This would also make them better at their job. So the SEC unbelievably is saying you have to sell all your crypto, right? It's not that they have to sell all their crypto, they should obviously have to disclose it and they should understand the technology and be able to use it and test it out. But of course we're dealing with scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler, who's making up all kinds of buddies can come in and take over. Matt Hogan of Bitwise, who I've had on the podcast quite often, he weighed in on the matter. He said, an obvious but unspoken implication of this is that the SEC will be staffed by people who dislike crypto. The only people with crypto expertise and a willingness to divest 100 % of their crypto are deep seated skeptics. This rule enforces a strong bias in hiring. Paul Grewal of Coinbase said, believe it or not, as a federal magistrate judge, I used to have a traffic ticket docket, think national parks, defense bases, VA hospitals. Imagine if the parties had learned a person deciding their auto accident case was forbidden from driving a car. Great points here. Now, Mark Ueda, who's one of the sitting SEC commissioners, and he is a Republican, him and Hester Peirce have both been vocal critics of the agency and on their lack of rules and clarity around crypto, also against many of the enforcement actions. So here's the headline, SEC should consider proposing rules to regulate crypto, Republican commissioner says. So I'm glad Mark Ueda is coming out and saying these things because it can't just be Hester Peirce. And right now, for the most part, it seems like Hester Peirce is outnumbered. So Mark needs to be more vocal, I'm glad he is speaking up. So here's a quote from him, unfortunately, the SEC did not take this approach and instead is pursuing a case by case approach through enforcement actions. As a result, it will take years to reach any type of legally binding precedent as matters will need to wind their way through the courts before reaching the court of appeals level, Ueda said on Monday in prepared remarks in London. So I hope he continues to speak on this, to show the agency is not in a good place, they are not providing clear guidance, they are operating by regulation by enforcement, which is really asinine. While the rest of the world is moving ahead, providing clear regulations. Now Eleanor Terrett of Fox Business highlighted the following, she tweeted, the House Appropriations GOP financial services and general government bill is up for vote before the rules committee at 4 p .m. Eastern before it heads to the floor. It includes an amendment from Tennessee Congressman Representative Tim Burchett to reduce the salary of SEC Chair Gary Gensler to one dollar. It also includes an amendment to defund the SEC for crypto enforcement. So shout out to Representative Tim Burchett, who's bringing the fire here on Gary Gensler. And we got to do these things, folks, to put some pressure. Gary Gensler should be fired and the SEC needs to be revamped. Congressman Warren Davidson has put out a bill, of course, that would revamp the entire structure of the SEC to make it less political and to make it more efficient. So let's see where this goes. But I love that these bills are coming out more pressure on scumbag regulator Gary Gensler. Now here's an interesting update around the Federal Reserve, and it just speaks to government and the lack of knowledge and education in government about crypto. So Matthew Seigel, who's head of crypto research at VanEck, he said, I met a Federal Reserve crypto researcher at a conference last week. He doesn't own any digital assets. He's not allowed to and didn't understand the difference between an exchange and a custodian. Folks, I'm face palming right now. I know you can't see me. And if you're listening on a podcast platform, trust me, I'm face palming right now. He doesn't understand the difference between an exchange and a custodian. God help us, right? These are the people who are trying to regulate crypto and putting out rules and recommendations and papers and so forth. It's unbelievable. But I know there are folks working to help bring education to Congress, and that is blockchain association, the Chamber of Digital Commerce and so forth. So we'll see, folks. We got a lot of work to do. This is why we have to use social media to our advantage to keep tweeting out, sharing the facts and exposing lies and false information like from the likes of Elizabeth Warren and others. Now, the juxtaposition of that is the UK's Bank of England releases stablecoin regulation plan. Remember, the UK had passed crypto regulations, so did the EU. So the US is lagging behind. And folks, stablecoins are going to be part of the token economy and will be a big part of how people transact. So there needs to be regulations. And we're seeing here in the United States, the SEC sending a subpoena to PayPal over their stablecoin, right? It's unbelievable what's happening. So the United Kingdom Central Bank, the Bank of England, has released a plan to govern the stablecoin market. The BOE and the Financial Conduct Authority plan to follow the rules released by the UK government last week to oversee the digital asset industry. As per the UK government's proposal, regulations for fiat backed stablecoins will begin in early 2024. As per the paper, the BOE will regulate systematic stablecoins while the FCA will govern the larger crypto market. UK Prime Minister Rishi Sanak had announced that he wants the nation to become a crypto hub, introducing clear rules for digital assets and crypto firms falls within the UK's goals. The UK's latest plan follows the European Union and Japan's similar moves. Folks, I love that crypto is not a specific asset class to the United States. So even though we're dealing with scumbag regulator Gary Gensler and all kinds of idiots in the government who have not educated themselves, the market will continue to grow and expand globally. So we can at least put our hope in that. Now we got some really weird news coming out from the Bored Ape Yacht Club and full disclosure, I don't own any Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs, but apparently they had an NFT convention and there was some UV lights and folks who were blasted by this prolonged UV light went blind apparently. So, I mean, this is just wild, right? I don't know what to make of it, but just so you guys know, I don't know if any of you went to any of these conventions or this convention, I should say, but, or, you know, somebody who went to this convention, but this is just some wild news coming out of 2023. So heads up on that folks, I want to end it by highlighting our sponsor and that is Uphold, which is a great crypto exchange this month, they're giving away 50 ,000 XRP. All you got to do is complete at least $20 in trades to be eligible to win and Uphold is a great platform. I trust them. I've been using them since 2018.

Antony Blinken Wants Israel to Stop Defeating Hamas
"He's trying to make sure there aren't more fronts that are opened up against Israel. It's not what he's doing. He's gone behind the back of the United States Congress, behind the back of the American people, behind the back of the Israelis. And he's negotiating for his so -called two state solution. They They even put that up on their official State Department website. They want to stop defeating Hamas. They want Israel, Doug Ross has a great piece on this. To enter into its 16th, 16th ceasefire over the years, 16th, where Gaza is built, and on and on, and then they attack Israel again. And people are right when they say, and you only this hear on Fox, that there was a ceasefire all the way up to October 6th until the Hamas Nazis broke the ceasefire. But that's not my point.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is reaffirming the U .S. commitment to the delivery of life -saving humanitarian assistance in war -torn Gaza. A State Department spokesman said Blinken conveyed that message to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during the Secretary's unannounced visit to the West Bank today. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders emphatically supports Israel's right to defend itself but also says the bombing in Gaza must stop. Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, Sanders said Israel's right to defend itself does not give it the right to kill thousands and thousands of innocent men, women and children. Sanders, who is Jewish, called Hamas an awful terrorist organization and he condemned the group's October 7th attacks on Israelis that led to the Israel -Hamas war. Newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson is defending a House bill that provides more than $14 billion in aid to Israel by cutting an equal amount of funding to the IRS. That money from this giant fund, over $67 billion that's sitting there to build up the IRS, it's more important to protect Israel right now than it is to hire more IRS agents. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, the Louisiana Republican talked about a new way of doing business in Congress. He said he wants Congress to find ways to pay for spending measures instead of adding to the national debt, the bill that was passed in the House.

"But that's just how that's just how we do things. Here at stern's media group. So not only did they get two britches, not only did they lose the vision that roger had for the company. But I will say this they hired way too many liberals. Nobody was watching the door. They partnered with alphabet activists and they were so excited to hire so many alphabet activists into that building. They hired so many left wing people that it literally changed the culture of the building. And I will tell you when I was there, I didn't care. Everybody sort of knew where I stood on things. I would have people coming up to me, camera operators, electricians, pretty much all of the hairstylist and the makeup artist, and lord knows they had to work on me to get me to presentable on TV. It was a difficult job. But they would all come to me quietly. And they would say, Todd, and they're looking around, as if somebody's like listening in. Todd, we just want you to know, we really support you. We're conservative too. I'm like, well, good for you. Why aren't we whispering? We're in Fox News channel for crying out loud. What's that all about? But the reality is, they are just not friendly to the viewers. And that sad. So I'm excited to hear from Tucker excited to hear what he has to say. We're going to hear his side of the story. That's going to be coming out. But this has not, this doesn't have anything to do with dominion. And by the way, Bohr lawsuits are coming at Fox. They're going after Fox. And they're going to be a big money trouble. But if this was about dominion, they would have gotten rid of Hannity, they would have gotten rid of and honestly, I think they would have survived a like Sean, but if you're, I mean, let's be honest here. You've got Hannity. You've got Tucker, which show do you get rid of? Well, what's the one show everybody's talking about? You would want to keep that show, and that's why everybody shocked that Tucker got the heave Ho. So where is he going to end up? I would like to see about newsmax, but Tucker may be done with cable. He'll probably go and do the digital route like megyn Kelly did. And I suspect it's going to be very good. But all you radio stations out there, you've got a decision to make. I mean, you know, I own kwa the news talk radio station. We carry we carry town hall news, and they do a fine job, but there are lots of other great USA radio news is out there. So there are other choices for you. And I think thousands of people, I heard thousands of people have canceled their Fox nation subscriptions. I mean, you guys are sending a very significant message. To Fox News, I hope they listen, but I don't think they care. Honestly, I just don't think they care. Because they feel like they could do whatever they want and you guys are still going to go. I'll give you a great example. Like all you Christian folks out there, we got a boycott Disney. You got a boycott testing. Well, you know what? Your church is still taking the youth group down there to Disney. You're taking your family vacations. Nobody's. Nobody's boycott and Disney come on. It's one thing to talk.

"But I'm telling you, I believe this is going to be a windfall for newsmax television. I was on newsmax this morning and I want to share with you what I shared on newsmax earlier today. Because I believe that at the end of the day, Fox News has lost. They do not have a vision. They did not understand that roger ailes when he created Fox News channel and let it for so many years. Before he was fired and then he died. When roger ailes was leading that network, he created something that appealed to everyday Americans in a roger grew up born and raised in Ohio in a working class family, and he knows what it's like. To live paycheck to paycheck. He really did believe in those ideas of God and country and family and whether or not you agreed with everything he did. This was a brilliant man. And roger was always careful, always careful never to allow a candidate to get too close to the network. And of course, we now saw what happened when one did. And Fox didn't know how the new leaders at Fox did not know how to deal with all of that. Now the other big problem at foxes is a major divide within the company. The news side is run by a leftist. And you can see that in a lot of the programming, especially on the weekends. And that's a big problem, because they think that people are watching Fox because of the news. Now, I suspect if many of you would call in and say that's just ludicrous and I would agree with you. The people paying the bills for Fox News channel, it's not that newsroom, it's Tucker and Sean and Lara and Fox and Friends. Those are the people paying the bills. Over at Fox. It's not that news people. As a matter of fact, it looks as though Fox News is trying to become CNN lite. Isn't this interesting CNN is trying to find a way to moderate itself and move back from the left. Meanwhile, Fox News is trying to move to the left. It's ludicrous. Did some research, by the way, last night, and you'll be interested to know this, Tucker's show, it's it brought in a lot of money. Over $70 million in advertising revenue. But what I find to be interesting is that at that Bill O'Reilly actually had a larger audience when he left the network than Tucker dead. So that is an interesting component to all of this. But at the end of the day, this is about a network getting too big for their britches. They believe that you folks are going to watch Fox News, no matter what, because it's Fox. And their theory is, well, we got rid of Bill and everybody stayed. We got rid of Meghan, everybody stayed. We got rid of Guilfoyle. Everybody stayed. We got rid of stern's everybody. Well, not everybody stayed with stars. As a matter of fact, on the radio division, well over half of the affiliates left with me when I walked out the door. And why is that? Well, because we treat the affiliates nicely. We're polite and we actually like our affiliates. And we're honored that they carry this program. Because we know you don't have to. There are lots of other choices out there..
"and fox" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"There is no doubt in my mind that the staple street directors would sue that director for breach of fiduciary duties. And I'm not saying that that would be a slam dunk lawsuit, but it would be a potentially meritorious one. So let me rabbit trail a little bit on that, right? You, when you are in officer director of a company, owe certain fiduciary duties to the shareholders to everybody else in the company to the company itself. Those are the duties of loyalty and the duty of care. The duty of care requires you to make an informed business decision when you do stuff for the business. It's a pretty low threshold. In Delaware, it means that you are not grossly negligent in your actions on behalf of the business. Okay, the duty of loyalty prevents you from engaging in a transaction that the classic example is one that benefits you personally but hurts the business, right? So I direct the business buys my fallow swampland, right? I did really great that business not so much. Yeah. And both of those are protected by principal called the business judgment rule. That basically says, as long as you're free of conflicts, the courts aren't going to second guess a decision that's made in good faith and with the minimum level of care. So bottom line, yeah, it would be hard to sue those directors of dominion if they didn't take the settlement, but plausible, right? And so, you know, now you're talking about being at trial being sued by some of your directors having everything tied up in appeal, right? Like this is just, it would have been that there was no situation in which dominion was not going to take this result. Yeah, and I think it was an appropriate result. Look, it's a lot, a lot, a lot of money, right? You know, I wish that it was, you know, I wish that it was ten times as much, right? But that wouldn't bankrupt Fox anyway and this is a lot. And perhaps maybe this is a tiny silver lining. You know, Republicans have been gunning for The New York Times space Sullivan standard. And this may be just a little speed bump to them. A little look see into the world, the alternate universe that might be if they do get rid of The New York Times V Sullivan standard because this trial would have been so much worse. Remember, there was that motion for summary judgment that found that all of those statements were defamatory. You know, The New York Times we Sullivan for public figures adds an extra layer because it requires the plaintiff to prove actual malice. That's knowing or reckless district art of the falsity of the statements. If Republicans get rid of that rule, fox is going to get sued 57 times a week, and they're going to lose 57 times a week. So perhaps this is just a little, just a little warning. You know, careful what you wish for. I think that's a really, really good point. And I guess I have been putting it this way, right? Which is a thing we have said from the beginning, which is I'm very, very happy that our public interest dovetailed with the side of the party that was wronged in this lawsuit, but in general, make a corporation on mega corporation lawsuits are what's wrong with our judicial system right now, right? So, you know, don't outsource your public obligations to a private company in a capitalist economy, if this isn't the result that you want. Right. And this isn't the end of the story. Smartmatic, which was one of dominion's competitors, is suing in the state of New York. Smartmatic put out a statement yesterday that said, dominion's litigation exposed some of the misconduct and damage caused by fox's disinformation campaign, smartmatic will expose the rest. And their lawyer Eric Connelly is no joke either. Yeah. He's a bruiser. So that's going to be good. Besides which there are also shareholder derivatives, suits because like you said, there's probably aren't going to be shareholder derivative suits in a non publicly traded company like dominion, but fox is publicly traded. And so there are already suits against Rupert Murdoch, lock and Murdoch, other members of the Fox corporation board for exposing the company to this downside litigation risk by airing all of this defamatory content. Yeah, that is exactly right. And let's just say briefly that in a shareholder derivative lawsuit what you're saying is you mismanage this company and caused it to lose X and here X is $800 million. Therefore, you must reimburse us the shareholders for that loss. So yeah, that has the, again, the potential to be significant. And once you've, you know, it's kind of like having a lineman blocking in front of you, right? What's the first suit goes through, that shows subsequent litigants, you know, how to do it. So yeah, I'm looking forward to watching smartmatic Sue Fox and you know, hopefully at an awful lot of people who have been libeled by Fox Fox. And in fact, this isn't the last dominion suit dominion is suing a whole bunch of people. There's something Mike lindell. They're suing that overstock weirdo, the pillow guy, they're suing. They're newsmax, newsmax put out a statement today, which is awesome. Newsmax says, newsmax believes that the facts at issue in dominion's case against it are materially different from those that may have driven fox to settle and no conclusion about newsmax should be drawn from that settlement. Newsmax stands by its coverage and analysis of the 2020 election and will continue to vigorously defend against that claim. Well, let's see how that. Can not wait. Okay, and on that note, let's take a little ad break in, we will be back after for the next story. The all new Nissan Arya is a fully loaded EV. It's

"Narrative that they wanted to promote. If Fox has been operating all these years thinking, eh, we don't really have to worry about it. Does this settlement tell us no actually the stakes have changed? Things have changed. Fox has said throughout, you know, this case could have grave consequences for all of media. And it seemed to mean media like Fox, but ultimately it feels like, yeah, fox is right. It does have consequences for media. You can't go around lying about people the way you've been doing as you just said for years and years and years. Now you've got to think about lawsuits. If you plan to do that. I'm very happy that you landed on that point because I'm really pissed about the way Fox News has defended this. Not only in court, but in their public relations statements, which frame it as a matter of the First Amendment. This is not a First Amendment sort of stand up for the First Amendment moment. It really isn't. The First Amendment does not protect certain things. And the judge was very forceful in his pronouncements from the bench on this. There are significant limitations to what you can do under the First Amendment. And, you know, the cliched ones that we constantly trade in just talking about is yelling fire, falsely yelling fire in a crowded theater, or making a threat to somebody like I'm going to kill you. You know, stuff like that is not protected. Another thing that is not protected is knowingly spreading false and damaging statements about someone. And that is a real problem. Fox News trying to wrap itself in the First Amendment when what had had done was never protected by the First Amendment and really is not a problem for our continued freedom under the First Amendment. In other words, the consequence is the legal consequences of doing this in no way in no way weakens our country's First Amendment protections. They remain intact. The First Amendment doesn't mean anything. If something like this goes without consequences, because then you can just lie. You can just lie and damage people's lives. And what kind of society do we have then? It's just not a good place to live. And if there are consequences for media, those consequences rest squarely and exclusively at Fox News.

"$787.5 million. Which is about a little less than half of what dominion demanded in the lawsuit. They demanded 1.6 billion. It's important to note that this settlement happened just before opening statements. You know, there's some sort of significance to that. Just in terms of wild speculation here, I know wild speculation is not a good idea when we're talking about this case. But I'm going to engage in it. Fox News lawyer, I think, could not have wanted to give an open statement in this case. Because the judge in the case, in his summary judgment ruling, basically tossed out all kinds of defenses for Fox, said that they couldn't argue that it was newsworthy as a matter of law, because that's not a valid protection in New York State law under the First Amendment, whatever. You can't say it was newsworthy. That will not work as a defense. He determined also that they couldn't call it opinion because as you may know, opinion has a wide berth under First Amendment law. If you're just riffing about what you feel, you really can't be busted for defamation. And he said you couldn't use other doctrines like the fair report doctrine and neutral reporting privilege, son and so forth. And he also said the judge ruled that the statements in question were clearly false. He used caps all caps to say crystal clear that these statements were false and he said they were defamatory per se, which means that they subjected dominion to ridicule and disfavor and so on and so forth. So there just wasn't that much that the Fox News guy could have said. I mean, he would have gotten up there and said, well, we did our best. Technically he could have said this is not actual malice, which is the First Amendment standard that dominion has to prove in order to prevail in a case like this because they're viewed as in the category of public figures. That was never officially ruled out in the case, but that they were operating under the actual malice standard. So what dominion gets is 787 and a half $1 million. Does Fox News have 787 and a half $1 million? Yes. The answer is yes, Fox News is an enormously profitable, the main profit driver behind Fox corp, which is the parent company, which was also named as a defendant in the suit. There was initially a separate suit against Fox court, but they were a consolidated Fox court, I believe, has like 4.1 billion on hand, according to The New York Times. And I won't say that the fox will have an easy time paying it, you know, 787 $1 million,

At first the neighbors thought the matter was a joke and ironically it was the panicked phases of the children that convince them otherwise. They ask their questions and got their answers in response. One asks more questions about the spirit's murderer and was told that the killer had since died so no justice could be gained convenient very convenient. I don't know how the spirit would know that though that they're keller died that they were hanging out probably. Yeah i mean they probably like what's up. Welcome to the club. Why would you wanna hang out with your killer. See on that side. It doesn't matter. Everybody loves everybody. Maybe go to the same spirit seven eleven. I don't know this same spirit bar. Yeah they drink spirit. Uh lame lame. Lame joke anyways. This spirit told them it's body was buried in the cellar and they took it so seriously that on saturday they began digging up the seller. But of course nobody was found. Nobody nobody. there's nobody. There's nobody in this study. I'm going to let you tell your story turned sorry. It's all right. It's good not to reverence a clue joke when you hear the word body. Thank you for the next few days. The house was filled with curiosity seekers. But with this attention also came skepticism. Some locals call them tricksters and others began to suspect which craft was at play..

Mrs. fox heard the story in soon began jumping at every noise in the house from banging doors do creaking timbers. Eventually the to fox sisters began using their fear to play pranks on her. This is most definitely. I would have done too. Yeah i actually did do that to my mom. When we lived in the house we thought it was kinda haunted. Felt to actually to this day. Still feel bad about it but it was worth it. Don't feel bad so They discovered that when an apple would fall to the floor. There is a hello knocking zone. That would be made. That would drive their mother into a panic and they also realized that poor mother had no idea that her innocent girls could play on her. Fears and terrorize are in such a manner so it was basically all in good fun to them and just you know simple teenage pranks in until the night of march thirty first when everything changed mrs fox had grown so panicked that she decided to have the girls sleep in her bedroom with her and mr fox that that was the birth control. I there you go at this point. She was seriously sleep-deprived in the children didn't seem to what sort of state they had put her into as they lay..

"Welcome fours talk or we're not really horse. We just like word play. Hello and welcome to horse talk horror. I'm sharon and i'm melinda. Today we are going to be talking about the fox sisters who played an important role in the creation of spiritualism in the eighteen. Hundreds spiritualism is a movement based on the belief that departed souls can interact with the living spiritualists sought to make contact with the dead usually through the assistance of a medium aka. A person that can contact the dead directly. Spiritualism should not be confused with spirituality which is more of a personal experience spirituality can be a path leads a person to know the reason for their existence or it could be a balance of the mind body and soul and often combines. The values amorality is with which a person by so spiritualism spirituality two different things got it got it check jack good. The fox sisters were famous spirit mediums. That helped many people connect with loved ones on the other side. An i actually have never heard of the fox sisters before survivor. i. I don't know how i have not heard of them. But i was watching the netflix series. The movies that made us and i watched the ghostbusters episode. And if you haven't seen that show. Basically each episode is a mini documentary about a movie from the eighties or nineties. I hope they make more though. Because it's really good and i kind of want to see them branch out and do other decades as well but anyways they talk about the history of how a film was made there's tons of trivia and there's also interviews with cast and crew about the film's so during the ghostbusters episode. They were talking with dan ackroyd. Who is talking about the fox sisters and how his own personal family history spiritualism and the paranormal helped create the idea for writing ghostbusters yet. That's actually how. I heard of the fox sisters but you should check out that episode. If you know you're ghostbusters fan. Because it's it's quite fascinating. Yeah that role wasn't really a huge stretch for danny ecker which is kinda cool. It is really cool and we'll talk more about that later. Okay but first. We're gonna talk about the fox sister awesome. I want to hear it. You learn share and learn so much edge makita takeda's right so the fox sisters were three. Sisters from new york leah margarita. Who is also known as maggie. And catherine who was known as cates. They also had other siblings. As well. leah was the oldest of the trio. She was born in eighteen. Thirteen along with three other siblings. Who were born in.

"Sorry i this'll be. I make fun of myself as in green room. That sort of thing. I don't share right. It's just my nature last night's joke that so okay so back on. So what's your outlook for the rest to be your s on your website. That you have some gigs ready. Yeah shows are coming back in. It's kind of exciting to see that that venues are starting to look to the future and and that they'll be able to have music again coming up and so i think we're kind of just starting starting our engine again. We're seeing some some were standard calendar. Fill up and so. I think we're we're just excited to get back to playing music and and and to start rebuilding some of the tours that we had to cancel A couple months in europe plan for spring of twenty twenty two which will be all over germany austria switzerland and and hopefully a few other other places in europe and and so i think just kind of shaking the dust off and and and trying to find their stride again as far as music. Goes this incredible news. Yes we feel very relieved because the the pandemic for everyone has been a guessing game of like. Maybe maybe things will come back at this time. Maybe it'll take this long and maybe it'll you know the vaccine will come out at this time and it's like you know everything that we thought would happen has not happened the way we thought and so while we were able to kind of be resourceful last year and we we offer driveway concert so people could hire us to plan their driveway for a socially distance crowd or we play outdoor patios at bars and stuff. It still wasn't quite the same and it feels like this. Summer is the first time that like you know. Even in the last week we've started to get a lot of emails from venues being like we're finally back open we can have you back and so It feels like things are finally happening. And now that we're both vaccinated as well. It just feels like things can move forward in a way that they couldn't have before now and so Yeah we're still. You know a little up in the air on what the second half of this year will totally look like but it does feel good to start seeing schedule. Fill up and having plans made incredible. It was like the groundhog day that you don't want to happen high every day. It's like really again. Do you see the bustle. Certain opening up this summer or is that here. We're starting to see a few things. Come back. I know some of our our favorites here on the west coast. I think may maybe off one more year. Like the oregon. Oregon country has been one of our favorites. That we've played the past few years. I think that might take one more year. But we're starting to see things. Yeah come come back little little bits at a time. I know we're we're we host portland's folk festival every january and that one is still is still on and so that's kind of exciting exciting to start to think that these things can come back you house the as we do every every january crystal ballroom. Incredible says definitely a labor labor of love. But but once it all comes to fruition. It feels It's a battery source of feels kind of feels for the year. Yeah it's great that you can back That so if there's something that you could change the industry what would it be. I know i know personally. This is something. I've been about a lot as more peer to peer music releases. I know you know we have. The streaming industry is a very big aspect of this and figuring out ways to have more direct payments from from listener to musician so Cryptocurrency can blockchain. Can be a big thing in this. Where where we can design something where musicians can can make an actual wage from releasing music and figuring out better ways to directly connect The creators to the listeners is one of something that i'm a big supporter of can be be a part of part of moving forward. Yeah i was actually going to say the same thing as you know the rate that artists are paid for streams on spotify apple. Is you know it's just not enough to live in. So i would love to see that industry Do better at making sure the the end artists are actually compensated for you know bringing so many people onto this app and you know creating this community on this specific app and so i would love to see and i think that's starting to change their some advocacy going on in washington. Dc around musicians and being paid a fair wage and so it's exciting that that's on the horizon but it's definitely something that that we think about so it's the reason. The album is available through it collects. Is that reason for insurance compensation honda. That's more my my at my enjoyment a like having having it available for For sale for crypto currency. but i. ideally. It's more the direct peer to peer transfers through using block chain in some in some way that i think would revolutionize the entire entire industry findings. Its no world sukey slain. Absolutely the i think the idea. And the concept behind it is is using blockchain. Some way to enact micro payments micro payments between the consumer and and the creator and so instead of the currently all the streaming sites are operating is kind of middle like okay. Here's the big aggregations of music. Here's where you can go to listen it. And so the money goes to them. Then from then they distribute the money but if if we take out that middleman and have it be direct micro payments from consumer directly to musician than the percent in the average of it will be higher and maybe even to a point where where it can be a liveable. Wage are pursued that you know. I think that's the big question right. Now is is figuring out where you know at like currently you can create smart contracts which would allow on on various blockchain's which would allow that direct interaction. But we're currently in a phase. Were figuring out how how to create those and how to set those up so that they the smart contract could run as the middleman but have it the direct payments go back and forth just from from from the artist to the consumer. And so feel are. We're starting to knock on the door there. I've been seeing some services pop up that are that are reflecting this. But i think I think it's just we're gonna have to let the technology work. Its way work. its way in ads. I can pay you back on that as somebody who knows nothing about anything that scott's talking.

"And it's i. I find it's difficult for just to Could on too many hats as a it affects her crown. Yeah it definitely does and you know those times that we were on the road and also having to send out booking emails and deal with our own pr and you know. Keep up with social media all of those different things. We really found that there was no time left to right because we're either driving all day or were a sitting on a computer on our free day zain playing in the evening and the so tired by the end of a show that we just go to sleep and so Yeah it definitely makes it hard to right when you have to do all the things and so being able to delegate to people who really do their job better than we could do. Their job has helped us a lot. I think i'm fall along the same lines. I agree with you a hundred percent so in a bit.

Those by bach as this states by the strata might. Now i loved the track i i really like the The change in tempo of just after five minutes song it throws me up then motivated. Although it you start at very not so it starts Very soft is actually very hard hitting comments on current society. Yeah we we actually started this right on on pretty much. The kind of the pandemic started for us. When we're in san diego and we're realizing that you know our tour is about to be cancelled this three month. Long u s tour that we had just started off on was about to be cancelled. And we're gonna have to head back home and i started writing. What the. Ideally kind of a slightly verbose diatribe. That was going to close the album down. I think has started with twelve or thirteen versus and played it for sale on What was it was it. They said yeah he because he he told me. Because i want to write an eleven minute long diatribe to go on the other end of the album and i was like if that is something you really want then you should do it and so he brings the song to me and i was like wow scott. The song is really well written Really beautifully everything. Beautifully said but like it's super depressing. You know one thing that fox and bones has always been as we've tried to Put an optimistic spin on things that are going on and tried to at least end on a high note and lifting people up and so i kind of gave him that note to see how he put a positive spin on some of these like hard hitting topics so he kind of went back to the drawing board to do a lotta cuts lottery arranging and a lot of the versus how they ended up. We're actually half versus of different parts. And so i kind of set it all down and figured out what was the what were the things that i really. In like. In joy from the league senator. Written down one of the things that i was trying to say what what what you know and kind of put all the pieces together reassemble the into into half half diatribe long enough to be cumbersome but not too long to be annoying. Hopefully i picked up. I was as did you consider putting spoken word not trap. As far as a as far as it felt the stripped down acoustic felt as as as spoken word as as we because a lot of our songs of all sorts of different little tidbits and the backbeat and the energy behind it and so as this as kind of strip down as it felt felt we could go.

"Was really happy to happen upon you music. This is your third studio album. American alchemy. that's coming at was released. May seven and stamped sandy. Thank you thanks so much for put put put a lot of ourselves into it. Yeah definitely what has been the response to them so it seems like people are really enjoying it. We kind of did a strategy with this album that we release quite a few singles before releasing the full album. So i think five of the songs actually were released two singles which gave us a chance to build up momentum and build up excitement for it over you know about a year and a half And so yeah. I felt really good to finally dropped the full album after we'd been talking about it for so long and you know or getting lots of streams and it's getting put on playlists and You know people seem to. It seems to be people's favorite album that we've put out which feels really good because it's certainly been our favorite to make haven't haven't read too many of the Reviews yet but my moms sure does love it. We're going to be playing track. You started playing together as dual shortly up to now that is true. Yes we in fact Almost right away Started on musical journey We met at a show of mine. Scott showed up there and we had a neutral friends in common He asked if i was interested in ever co writing and I was and so pretty much right away. Our first song was written mostly over facebook messenger. I think a day after we met scott sent me a song idea and i sent some lyrics back and a couple of days later we got together and finished it and so really truly our our music career started pretty much the same time that we met And it's yeah five years deep now. I think we both were. Were looking for. Cut an alternative to to the rock bands. That were in. We're both fronting a fringing. Rock rock band psychedelic rock bands. And i think we're both looking for more songwriting and acoustic driven. So that's that really pushed us through the first stage of our career as was kind of evolved since then. But that's that's what we kinda bonded over was was looking for a more kneel stripped down version of of these these rock bands that we'd been been in. You must've psychic was my next question. What draws you choose. Yeah and it's really. It's evolved for us since we started but initially. I think you know. I think we both really started when we both started a songwriters years and years ago. I think we really did start. As you know kind of folk songwriters. I was really into more of the country folk side of things. But you know scott started. His career is just like a solo songwriter. As well and then morphed into the rock world and i really loved that and still love it. But i think there's always been a part of me that has been drawn to just the you know. Simpler songwriter focused music. And it's something that i almost can't help right and so you know this has given us a really good outlet because i still have my rock band and so i get the chance to do both and have it makes sense. And then over the years we've also added more rock elements to our sound Because it just also as part of who we are and so it's kind of been a natural progression from from very very folk to you know more nostalgic retro feeling folk. Rock sound that we have now. Yes definitely so have always been been drawn to lyricism. Can i came up. Came up through the dylan's in the beatles. Song writers in singer songwriters. Jackson browne type. And i've always always been drawn to to that as an outlet to express the experiences that i've had or share share lessons that i've learned along the way and figuring out a creative and entertaining way to fit all those puzzle pieces together to hopefully say say something. That's always been something. That i that i that i've really loved most not all the songs from the album written or not. Yeah i think a good chunk of them were and then i want to say maybe three or four of them were written during the pandemic or at least at the start of when it was all starting so i found that surprising because they're very timely site. The it's almost like uber on seeing the future her. What was half the change regard. I think a lot of that too is based on in like it wasn't necessarily the pandemic that changed everything that every you know. It was a bubbling. An energy was bubbling throughout these past past years and so we all are feeling adam billing the disconnect from each other and feeling You know maybe feeling isolated and then the pandemic and away was a manifestation of of all those feelings than we actually became physically isolated and and so. I think a lot of a lot of the record was written. As these kind of energies were were growing in coming to fruition. Definitely has that journey. All of us are y. So both you pick up music. Very i did. Yeah i come from a musical family. My mom was a singer. You sang in choirs. Different professional engagements with singing and my dad always played the guitar. He would play a songs with our. We'd go to sleep or during bath time and stuff when i was a kid so it was a huge part of our lives than For my mom us taking up a musical instrument was a non-negotiable when we were kids so she she said you're going to music lessons. I don't care what instrument you pick. You can pick whatever you want but but you're taking music lessons and And so yeah. I was definitely singing from a very early age. Picked up the guitar at seven and yeah. It was a very large guitar. I was very small hurt. They're definitely pictures of that but But yeah and so i you know. It was just a huge part of my life being inquirer and competing in highschool for vocal things. Yeah but it was never. I never saw it at that time. As a potential job i just more saw it as a hobby in so that that chain really happened in my twenties when i decided to pursue it full time the head a flirtatious interaction with music when i was younger as a very stubborn kid much like i am now as an adult and without you know i i needed to to want to play it needed to be passionate about it for anything to really stick and so i do remember. My parents will like having can't lesson here or there or trying to pick up the guitar. But i needed to be I needed to be something that that i was passionate about. And so do have some memories of my mom teaching me the ninja turtles theme on the piano or the x. Men beam me. Learn them a little bit. But it wasn't. Until maybe i was seventeen or so when i really caught the bug had said i had kind of dream about play on stage with black electric guitar and a friend of mine. Brian baldwin. gifted me his his guitar. And that kind of then kind of caught the the passion of it really came through and from then on just was hyper focused on an dedicated. Most of my most of ours to to learning or walking around the college campuses playing guitar. And just just really diving head first into it or you may be listening to changing of the guard.
