The Surprising Divide Within Jewish Community
"If you're not a faithful Jew if you don't really believe that and you just believe that it's an ethnicity then you fit in with the left -wing Democrat Party just as certain Catholics would or certain Protestants would or certain other people do and the reason is if you don't get real faith out of Judaism or real faith out of Catholicism or real faith out of Judaism then the faith you hold is the faith in government that in the Democrat Party and this is why Mises was talking everybody about talks like Marxists now you listen to the left whether they're Jews or otherwise they all sound like Marxists and so the secularization of the solely ethnic Jewish people as opposed to the Jewish people who are recognize themselves as both an ethnicity and a faith has led to a great divide within the which Jewish community is why you have a guy like Thomas Friedman over writing here in the United States in the New York Times trashing Netanyahu and his unity government over and over and over again for the right -wing extremist religious parties quote unquote you'll get that from the Democrat Party you'll get that from the American media you'll get that from the Biden administration these extremist religious Jews that's what they call them there's never an extremist Marxist whether they're Americans whatever their faith that no no no and here's the piece in Axios by Andrew Solynder little over a week ago scoop Jewish Democrats lead push for Gaza fuel shipments now why would Jewish Democrats be leading the fuel the
Fresh update on "andrews" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd.com. Joining us now is the legendary Raheem Kassam who lands more Trump interviews than anybody else. Congratulations, Raheem. It's like if I want to see what Trump has to think, he just calls Raheem on the plane or in the office. So you're doing a great job. Raheem, there's a lot going on in the Western world right now. We have Ireland that is bubbling up and we have a lot happening domestic politically as well. So I want to ask here, just have you walk us through, how do you see the Republican race, Republican primary race, Koch brothers behind Nikki Haley? What are we supposed to make of that? Well, and thank you for having me, Charlie, and thank you for the kind words. The first thing that comes to mind when you look at Koch world, Koch network, choosing to endorse Nikki Haley is obviously the megabucks, right? That's a war chest that any candidate would love to get their hands on, on any side. Historically, you know, the Kochs have poured hundreds of millions into races over the last couple of years alone. Probably runs into much more than that over the last 20 odd years. And the second part of it that people need to understand is that so many people that are in the DeSantis camp actually have worked for or with Koch-aligned and affiliated organizations over their political histories. So for instance, if you take, you know, Ken Cuccinelli had received, when he was AG, large amounts of money from Koch networks. You have DeSantis spokesman, Carly Acheson, who was defending her former boss, Governor Kevin Stitt, taking money from Koch networks previously. And Christina Pushaw as well, the spokesman for Ron DeSantis, the rapid response spokesman for Ron DeSantis, has also worked closely with Koch networks. So you've got to look at it from that perspective as to why they find it so much of a humiliation, so much of a snub that that organization, America's Prosperity, and probably the broader Koch network as well, is now going to be supporting somebody else. Somebody else who has been eating Team DeSantis' lunch for a couple of weeks now, who is fundraising just as much as them, who is going up in the polls, not down or flatlining. And, you know, I'm not a huge Nikki Haley fan by any stretch of the imagination. But her campaign is clearly more disciplined. She's clearly impressing donors much more. And yes, they are, you know, I've never been a fan of the Koch networks. They are more open borders, more globalist types, more corporate types. But at the same time, like I said at the very beginning, these candidates would kill to get their hands on that kind of money.
Favela's Endrow Metelus Is Empowering Communities Through Fashion and STEM
"Everyone. This is Dr. Oh, how are you? Again, we are on one of the episodes, STEAM to a guest who is just phenomenal. His name is Andrew Matilas. He is incredible. I say that he is incredible because one of the things that he is doing that I truly like is that he had a fashion, actually a fashion design company, and it is called Favela, if I'm not mistaken. Yes, Favela Boys Apparel, correct. Oh my God. Wow. And then guess what he's doing? Guess what he's doing with that company? So he's also using that company, man. He's a man after my heart. He's also using that company actually to also get resources to sponsor STEM programs in the Caribbean and also in the United States. I thought that is innovative. I like that because we all know how it is difficult to get sponsors, right? Or when you write a grant, it's very competitive and it takes time. But having your own project and using part of that project to sponsor a STEM program, I think that it is innovative and all of us should be doing the same thing. We're smart enough to do that. I said I was going to use 10 % of my source, African source, if I ever get successful, right? He's going to be using, he told me that he's going to be using 15 % of his profit, whatever profit that he gets to sponsor his STEM programs. I thought that is innovative. Now he's challenging me now. Now I've started to reconsider my 10%. So let me let him introduce himself and tell us a little bit about what he's doing. Please go ahead. Hey, I'm doing great. Like I said, every day is a holiday and I really mean that. Life is beautiful, right? So thank you very much for having me. I'm gladly appreciated being here to talk about STEM and talking about the brand I have and also talking about how I can get pretty much people to come and be part of this project, right? Because it's not just for me, it's for us because we can all benefit from this, right? So just to go in more details, the brand name is Favela Boys Apparel, which is a brand that we donate 15 % of a net profit towards STEM education for underserved communities, right? So not only in the US, but we also operate in the US, Latin America, the Caribbean, as well as we're looking also into Africa. Just to give you a little example, earlier this year in January, I was in Brazil. We were donating a few computers to a nonprofit organization that focused on STEM because the kids needed for coding cybersecurity where they teach at that particular nonprofit organization, but also the adults will come in at night also learning different skills, different trade, that kind of system as well.

A highlight from Communicating Christ to Others
"Let's open our Bibles tonight, we're gonna actually be in just a couple quick passages tonight, but let's begin this evening in the book of Mark chapter 16, Mark 16, we're gonna look at one of the Great Commission passages to begin with tonight. The title of tonight's message is, Communicating Christ to Others. Communicating Christ to Others. What do we mean by that? So we're gonna start out with something, a very familiar command to us by the Lord Jesus, so Mark 16 and verse 15. The Bible says here, And He said unto them, unto His disciples, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature, or literally to all creation. Wherever you go, go and preach the gospel, proclaim the gospel. And so this is definitely some very important instructions from our Lord, we refer to this as the Great Commission, and as a command for us to be His salt alights, to spread His message of truth, no matter where we go around the world. We've been talking on Wednesday nights, one of the blessings or assurances that Jesus gave His disciples and even to us, that we would do greater works than even He did, and not greater in like how many or even in the way that they're being done, but greater in the scope that was done. And so remember Jesus, the miracles that He performed was pretty much just to Israel, His teaching was to Israel, to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, but we see in the book of Acts, that message went really not in just Jerusalem and Judea, but also Samaria in the uttermost part of the world, much broader than it was during Christ's ministry itself. And so it's again, they didn't do a greater job than Jesus did, I mean, no one can do that, okay? But the scope of it was much greater. And so tonight we're going to be talking about really the application of that, and even as we look at missions today, here at Victory Baptist, I'm very proud that we support about 21 missionaries serving really around the world, representing human here in Minnesota and then abroad, and we rejoice in that. I'm really looking forward to this missions conference coming up in just a few weeks. Again, we have three speakers that will be with us, Brother Sam Slobodian, who we know well, reaching Ukrainians and Eastern Europeans, Russian speakers, predominantly, with the gospel, and looking forward to hearing an update from what's going on in his world, his ministry. And then we have another man, Andrew Counterman, who is a director over a ministry that helps church planters in Latin America, and God has been doing some good things through his ministry. I actually talked to him this week, and I found out that years ago, he actually used to be on the board of BIEM, which is the mission board of Sam Slobodian. So he and Sam Slobodian are good friends, haven't seen each other in a while, so they look forward to reconnecting at the conference. Small world, isn't it? And then we have David Bennett, with Silent Word Ministries International. I've known David for many years, and he ministers to the deaf around the world, and really kind of an interesting mission field. I think a lot of times we forget about the deaf communities around, and how much they do need to hear, literally, they need to hear Jesus, they need to hear about Jesus. How do deaf people hear? They actually hear with their eyes and they talk with their hands, okay? Pretty amazing. They still communicate. So very interesting, how do we share the gospel with the deaf around us? And we're gonna do a lot of application here tonight as well. So when we think about the Great Commission, to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, although this command is simple, the task before us is great. In human terms, the Great Commission is daunting, but that God has promised us His presence and His power as we go forth in His name. In the world's population today, we have what, 7 .7 billion people, I believe, it's growing by the minute, right? And so there's a lot of people in this world, especially in the past 100 years, my word, the world's population has grown exceedingly. And so when we think of that, and we're supposed to go into all the world, preach the gospel to every creature, every person, wow, where do you start? Where do you begin? And I think that's kind of, when you look at it again from a human perspective, that seems overwhelming, but how do we do this? By looking at modern missions and when we kind of the traditional approach we take to missions, even here at Victory Baptist, there are a few challenges that must be considered. So I wanna do something tonight. About a year ago, we actually went over the philosophy of missions in the local church. We spent several weeks on why we do missions, why do we have, why is the local church involved? We talked about even the deputation process, is that even biblical support raising? Is that biblical? We talked about a little bit of the missions experience across the world and wherever they may be. We talked about all those things, but here's some, just a very quick recap of two things. First of all, what is missions? Let's talk about that. Missions is this, missions, this is kind of my definition in a way, but kind of modified from others, but missions is the responsibility and the task of the local church to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world for the purpose of discipleship, multiplication of self -supporting, self -governing and self -propagating churches for the glory of God, okay? So as we talk about works that are eventually self -supporting, self -governing, self -propagating church, in other words, they become kind of, they're not dependent on a foreign entity per se. They have their own independence, if you will. So that is, that's one of the goals of missions, but who is a missionary? Who is a missionary? There's a song that I remember singing when I was little, be a missionary every day. I don't be a missionary every day, tell the world that Jesus is the way. I don't know if you ever heard that song or not, but the fact of the matter is that song's not true. Not everyone is called to be a missionary as a vocational missionary. Everyone is called to be an ambassador for the Lord in that regard. You represent Jesus Christ no matter where you go, but here is, this is why. Why do we say, when we talk about missions and missionaries, who is a missionary? And this is a definition here, a missionary is one called by God to full -time service of Bible study and prayer and one who crosses cultural and or geographical boundaries to proclaim the gospel in areas where Jesus Christ is largely unknown, okay? Let me slow down a little bit and read that again because there's a lot in that. A missionary is one called by God to full -time service of Bible study and prayer and then one who crosses cultural and or geographical boundaries to proclaim the gospel in areas where Jesus Christ is largely unknown. So that's when we talk about missionaries and we support a missionary and we have, like you said, we have 21. That is generally their description, okay, in those parts, so very important, okay? But one thing that we're gonna talk about tonight is this. This is a practical way. We talked earlier about in modern missions, there are a few challenges that missionaries do face and it's one that often does not, it sometimes gets talked about but it is not really thought about. What do you mean? So it's, again, this is something that's talked about but not really thought about. What is one of these challenges? And one of the challenges that missionaries often face is that of language barriers. There's cultural barriers. I think we think about, when I was in Bible college, I was a missions major and so I remember going through one of our missions classes and our professor, he said that there is three Fs in the missionary experience. The first is fascination. When a missionary gets to the field, there's a fascination. It's kind of like honeymoon period, wow, you're kind of like the tourist, you know, you take pictures of everything, buy all the souvenirs, you know, you kind of get that fascination. The second part, though, after you're there for a while, you get, it becomes frustration because you figure out, wait a minute, you stick out like a sore thumb in that culture. You don't look like, talk like, act like the culture that you're in and sometimes they don't think the way you do or, you know, respond the way you're expecting. So there's a frustration in the culture. We never got to the fourth F, or the third F, excuse me, we never got to the third F, so I have no idea what comes after frustration. He left us hanging all these years, it's been 20 some years. I have no idea what we're supposed to end up. I would say, if anything, I think there is a sense of fulfillment that you are obedient to Christ, our faithfulness, that you're there sticking out as long as God keeps you in that area. But nonetheless, language barriers is very, it's a real barrier and it's actually more, and I'll kind of break it down a little bit here in just a moment here, but language barriers is actually a very serious barrier that missionaries must take, that they must cross. And so learning another language in another culture, preferably by immersion, is something that's very challenging that a lot of missionaries face and I think this is really where you find out who's going to stick it out in missions versus who's not going to stick it out. And I'll get to that, why is that, okay? So let me ask you this, how many of you took a foreign language, whether it be in high school, college, whether it be, several of you have, okay? I jokingly say, Linnea just started a Spanish class at co -op, but I jokingly say, the high school Spanish you have, by the time you get older, you're just good enough to order at Taco Bell, you know? So speaking, practically what do you do with that? And so if you've actually learned and studied another language, like actually seriously hit the books on it and to immerse yourself in that culture if you can, is very important. But here's some quick statistics. There are, how many languages are there in the world today? How many known languages? There are over, there's about, actually this is the report as of earlier this year, January 1st, 7 ,117 known languages spoken by people around the world, according to Ethnologue. Well over 7 ,000 languages represented around the world, that's a lot, okay? So here's the next question, I'm gonna ask you this, what do you think? Which language has the most native speakers, in other words, this is their first language, their birth languages if you will, which language has the most native speakers, what do you think? Chinese, yes, absolutely, 1 .27 billion people speak Chinese as their first language, English is third down the list, okay? So anyways, you think of this Mandarin or Cantonese, okay, that's very well spoken, okay? So how much of the world's population speaks English as a first or second language, what do you think? What percentage would you say of the world's population speaks English as a first or second language? What's that? I'd say you can learn to speak English and all that.
Fresh update on "andrews" discussed on Bankless
"And like people, people were just like, when it comes from people that you trust and know, like it hits different. And so you just need the trusted advisors in this space. We like walk you through it. Right. And then once they do is like, okay, this is pretty obvious. So I put out this tweet and I said, to lead with the obvious, we could be better at accepting criticism of Bankless. We hold Bankless very dear and like I and I think you two have this innate reflex to protect it when we see it being unfairly attacked. This clouds our ability to hear what Crypto Twitter is trying to tell us, especially when it's drowned out by very obvious and unwarranted and off base hatred towards Bankless. Please forgive me for blindly throwing out the baby with the bathwater when it comes to Crypto Twitter to constructively tell Bankless how it feels about stuff. Basically, Bank, Crypto Twitter is like, well, you guys like David and Ryan, we just explained the history of Bankless Dow just now. I say most people were unfamiliar with that, or at least have forgotten about it and have not been tracking the progress and work, very real work that Bankless Dow has been doing for other protocols, just like the proposal that they made to Arbitrum. And so they just and then Bankless Dow makes this tweet. We're asking for two million dollars and like that gets enough virality for people to be re-exposed to Bankless Dow for the first time in a while. And the first time that they see Bankless Dow in a first time in a while, they're asking for two million dollars. And then they associate it with like, yeah, we have a lot of ads on Bankless. And then they smash those particles together and be like, they're grifters. Anyways, I'm going back into the defensive thing, so I'm trying to not do that. So like we like, yes, we understand how, like, if you are not tapped into the Dow, even though like Ryan and I are not tapped into the Dow, we're still branding isn't David are just asking for like Arbitrum tokens via the Dow is a sly, grifty little mechanism of getting more Arbitrum tokens. Yes. Like that's like a conclusion that people came to. Yes. And so like, OK, I understand branding is not clear. Like we have tokens, but we don't vote in governance. So we like we are affiliated with a Dow, but it's an independent entity. It is all confusing. I understand. And there's actually going to only get more confusing as time goes on. And as if we have another bull market and we have even more people come into the space, they're just going to see like, oh, Bankless, Bankless Dow, same, same. That's the that's the signal through all of the mop attacks is just two things. The branding between Bankless and the media company that we run and Bankless Dow is unclear right now. So we need which is the experiment, which is the experiment. That was. But we've seen ways it can lead to bad outcomes, basically. And so one of the steps that we're going to do is submit a governance proposal to the Bankless Dow to kind of clarify the branding between Bankless, the media company and what we do and Bankless Dow itself. So that is a work in progress. The other thing that we're going to do is burn all the bank tokens. I don't want any question out there that like David and Ryan control the Dow in any way. You don't have. Our beneficiaries of the Dow. Yeah. Yeah. Our profit motivated set this up because like they want to be extractive from the community. No, that was not the intent from the get go. And to quash any doubts, it's just simpler just to basically burn the bank tokens. So that's what we're doing, our personal tokens and Bankless HQ. And I think the Dow is going to be OK, like they're going to thrive. They're going to do what they do. They're going to self-organize. The truth is like we didn't do any of it. We had very little participation. We were kind of like spiritual support, movement support in this organization. Everything that they've done is kind of theirs. And anyway, that's the conclusion that we came to. And I would also say, going back to what I said, there's actually no Bankless Dow. There's actually just the conglomerate of sub-Dows that when you form them together, then they are like, hey, guys, I think we are Bankless Dow. That's how I articulate what Bankless Dow is. And like the real Dow for me, like the way that I articulate this thing is the idea, the Bankless idea, freedom, sovereignty, sovereignty through protocols, cryptography, like all of the ideas and values that we talk about here on Bankless. Both Bankless LLC and Bankless Dow, in my mind, serve that idea, that grander idea. And that is the broader Dow, is the idea of Bankless. Lowercase B, anyone can go Bankless. This is the Bankless movement. I mean, anybody can go Bankless. It's not just a podcast, not just a newsletter. This is the conclusion, I think, for me. Toast tweeted this. In all seriousness, if Bankless are the current main characters, then we're doing OK. So, David, I guess if we became the villains last weekend, maybe crypto Twitter feels OK about that. Yeah, if we're the worst people. At least bad villains, maybe. At least we got that. OK, so that existential crisis, David, leaves maybe to a broader existential crisis. It's like, what are we doing here in crypto? And this was one interesting reaction and outcome from this whole series of events that is much broader than, I think, Bankless and gets the question of like, why are we here? This is DeFiMoki tweeting out, the mistake I always see from people in crypto, like Bankless, the mistake they make is thinking too much about being net positive for the space. Go see your tweet. You said you were here to be really effing more than net positive, but like overwhelming positive, overwhelmingly positive. Yeah, the tweet continues. Don't kid yourselves. We are in this land of degenerate capitalism only to make money and then name some developers that are kind of DeFi developers, Andrew Cronier and someone else. They contributed so much to this space and still get shit on. Token price going up equals contributing to crypto. Token price going down equals, oh, by the way, we didn't include that part of the story, but the bank price, token price down bad. But we don't care. We've never talked about that. That's never been a thing. It's a governance token. What do you think a valueless governance token is? Right. At the end of the day, though, that's the only two things that matter on crypto Twitter. Yes. And I think this, maybe this is crypto Twitter culture versus all of crypto culture. We could unpack that, but this general idea of like, we're here for the money. Right. I responded to this. I know this isn't true because it's not why I'm still here. Yeah, we all want to make money. That's good in itself, but not when it's the only reason we're here. Crypto is a system of digital rights and freedom we can pass down to future generations. That's why I'm here. I don't think crypto Twitter necessarily resonates with this take. But what do you think about it? Like, this is sort of the nihilism, I would say, versus like, we're here for the values. We're here for the money versus we're here for the decentralization. What's your take on this? Are we being like, naive in, I don't know, doing this whole bankless thing? Order of operations, right? If you are here for the money, the fact that crypto is about money is like this very, like, unfortunate thing that's very necessary because that's what we're here to do. Is it unfortunate? Well, because you can come to crypto for the tech and then you work in crypto and you build crypto and then the assets follow the builds, what you build, right? And money follows the tech. But then some people come and it's like, well, I'm here for the money. And then they actually extract from the people that are here from the tech, right? Does that make sense? It does. But I don't understand why it has to be binary. Why can't you come for both? Why can't you come for, like, long-term wealth creation? I'm here for the tech money, the money tech, right? It's like, yeah.

Fresh update on "andrews" discussed on Timothy Keller Sermons Podcast by Gospel in Life
"Some people like more of a sociological view. They say, well, racism, for example, and poverty is a result of unjust social system, and therefore it can be dealt with through education and social policy and programs. Other people would say, no, a lot of this, the problems we have are only physiological. They're the results of evolutionary biology, of natural selection, the survival of the fittest, and we have to deal with it really through chemicals, chemistry. It's chemistry that makes us aggressive. It's chemistry that does this sort of thing. So we deal with it through drugs. But you see, when I said, for the last 100 to 150 years, we've been looking at evil as strictly human, something that we can manage, something we can control, something we can analyze, something we can prescribe, something we can deal with. That period is ending. We are being trounced by evil. We are giving up all those kinds of sanguine ideas. We have been working at doing this. We've been working at the counseling. We've been working at the social programs. We've been working at these things. Things are not getting better. Some of you know, if you were here last year, and there's always a significant turnover from year to year. But last year, during this time of the year, I did a series on sin and the faces of sin. And I read two books as a background. And one of them, some of you remember, I used to quote from it because it really had an impact on me. It was a man written by a Columbia University professor named Andrew Delbanco. And he wrote a book called The Death of Satan. And I heard an interview with him on a talk show, WNYC, that was pretty intriguing. And I put that together with a book. And he was asked, why are you saying it's bad for society that we've lost the sense of transcendent evil? That's what he says. He says, it's bad for us that we've lost Satan and the whole idea of God, Satan, and this transcendent dimension of evil. And when he was asked on the talk show why he did that, in fact, somebody said, why would a guy like you, a secular liberal person by your own definition, why would you write a book like this? This is what he said. I'll paraphrase, of course, and summarize. He says, I am the child or the grandchildren of Eastern European Jews. And therefore, people in my family went through the Holocaust. And some of my relatives died in the Holocaust. He says, now, if you get rid of the idea, if you get rid of the idea of the transcendent, if you say when it comes right down to it, evil is only the result of sort of human frailties, human mistakes, human problems. He says, we've got a problem. In fact, this is a quote from his book. He says, and I'll just show you why he says it here in a sec. He says, a gulf has opened up in our culture between the visibility of evil and the intellectual resources available for coping with it. A gulf has opened up. And he says, the Holocaust is where it started. He says, we don't have the intellectual resources. He says, let me ask you a question. Why did the Holocaust happen? How do you explain that? If you get rid of the idea of God and the transcendent and the devil, he says, psychologically, are we gonna say that the Nazis just lacked love in their life? That they weren't parented right? They had low self-esteem? He says, that trivializes it. But do you say, as some people are saying, it was a product of the racism of Northern European culture, that the reason that they did it was because Northern European culture is more racist than other kinds of cultures. But then you have the same kind of dehumanizing, you see, racist approach to that that was the cause of the problem to begin with. He says, are you gonna say, in fact, he says, if you get rid of the idea of God and the devil, are you gonna say that really all of our aggression is just the product of evolutionary biology, natural selection, survival of the fittest? He says, in that case, if that's where it comes from, you have no right to be upset, it's natural. Look at nature, the strong have always eaten the weak. He says, a gulf has opened up in our culture between the visibility of evil and our intellectual resources for dealing with it. And that's all this passage is saying. It is trying to say, if you decide that we can deal with evil because it's us, and it's only us, it's just human, it's psychological or sociological or physiological, if you think so, you'll be defeated. No one could help him, no one was strong enough, no one. If you say, I can deal with the problems of my life if I just suck it up, and really do what I know I'm capable of doing. If you go to little classes where you tell people in elementary school, you can be anything you wanna be. If you see the slogans that say, if we just all pull together, we can make this world a better place. This passage says, no, you need a savior. No, you need intervention. Look at your own lives individually. You don't have to be demon possessed to understand this. You look at yourselves, you know you're out of control. You've got habits that you can't fix. You've got, you're driven in ways that you don't know what to do with. You're scared, there's things that scare you. Some of you just cannot, you know we can make fun of commitment phobia. Some of you just can't do it. And so you've gone to therapy. And the therapy very often shows you the psychological way in which all this has come about. But then you turn to this therapist and say, okay, great, I understand. What do I do about it? And the therapist, most any reputable therapist will say, well, what do you think? And on and on and on. Why? Because you see, what therapy can do is it can show you how you got into this condition. It cannot get you out. It doesn't get you out, don't you know? You see it. No one can break the chains, the power of evil. If you think of it in merely human terms, if you deal with it with merely human resources, we're gonna be defeated and we are. Corporately we're defeated, individually we're defeated. Okay, second, the second thing this shows us is not just the power and complexity. Oh, how awful to say to you New Yorkers, and New Yorkers love to believe in complexity. They love to believe in sophistication. They're not simplistic, they're sophisticated. And when I say to you, if you don't believe in the devil, if you don't believe in transcendence of evil, you are looking at your problems too simplistically. You don't see the multidimensionality to them. You don't see the complexity of them. It's evil inside and evil outside and evil above. You don't want to be naive. I mean, you know, New Yorkers don't mind being wrong as long as they're not naive. They don't mind being messed up as long as they're not naive. You think you're deep and complicated, some of you, but you're more deep and complicated than you know.

A highlight from Bitcoin ETF Hype is Exaggerated w/ Andrew Horowitz | Investment Advisor
"All right, today we're going to be diving into some macro news, also get into a little bit of what's happening in DC and then towards the end, we'll get into a little bit of ETFs, some strategies and some things to look forward to in 2024. We're going to do it with a special guest. I think you guys will love it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back to Tech Path. Joining me today, of course, is a friend and a guest who's been on our show many times and that, of course, is Mr. Andrew Horowitz, president and founder, Horowitz & Company. Great to have you back. What's happened? It's been a while. How are you, Paul? It has been a while. I'm doing great. The markets are kind of a little crazy, but I think this is, with everything that's going on right now, not only in DC, but just globally from just the scenarios we're facing internationally, I think what's to be expected, I think it's at least, nothing's burnt down yet, so that's a good thing. At least yet. Good news. Yeah, good news. Success. Nothing's on fire that we know of other than, well, a few things. Let's talk about a few things that might be on fire and that, of course, is the U .S.'s credit rating, downgraded from Moody's, not necessarily looking that great and a looming shutdown right now. Obviously, Andrew, you being an investment advisor, you get a chance to work with a lot of high net worth individuals. What's their take on this? Are they concerned at all? What do you think is up? So it's interesting. I was watching, just to be clear, the Moody's move was really not a downgrade. It was more of a credit watch, which is equivalent to like a mini downgrade, if you want to call it that, but it's not a true downgrade. It's saying, it slapped us on it and it was all about just voicing the opinion of the bond rating agency of the dysfunction in Washington. And by the way, it doesn't take a genius or anybody that is doing anything in life to know that there is, that doesn't know that there's a severe dysfunction in Washington, D .C. Our political leaders cannot make a decision and they won't make a decision for any good reason other than the fact of what is politically expedient and good for themselves. And they're not really doing a good job for any of us, right? So okay, that being the state of where we are and the fact that we can't get a budget done, you know, we had to open the debt ceiling up for a year and a half to an unlimited amount of debt being pumped in if necessary, and the fact that they can't get the full resolution done on anything more than a continuing resolution to fund government is a problem, is that there's a functional dysfunction in Washington, kind of like the walking dead of politicians. So most people realize that they're not going to be terribly affected long term, even if we do shut down the parks, the various agencies. Those people are going to get their money when we reopen, eventually something will break and they will be a budget done. So it's this very strange time of a realization that there could be a downgrade. But in the end, what happens, what happens is, as Alan Greenspan would say, it doesn't matter what our rating is, we could always print as much money as we need to pay off all of our debts. The U .S. is not going to default. Yeah, well, but that's the truth. And that's what we've done. Well, yes. And of course, I think, you know, if you look at the spiraling national debt and the continued rise in that, I mean, at some point they have to be able to address this. Is there really any way out of this other than a complete pivot by Powell? There's no way. I can't see a way. You know, what do you do? You raise the, well, yeah, I'll give you the way, right? We all buckle down. We pay higher taxes. You and I are not in favor of that, are we? No, but that's what we do. We slow down the spending on excess and we spend, just like you would do as a business or an individual. If all of a sudden, you know, your salary is capped out at X, you don't spend X plus 20, unless you know you're going to get some money in the future, for whatever reason, whether it's, I don't care if it's an inheritance or whether you're gonna get a raise or a bonus or something else comes in, but that's not how the government operates. They operate on, listen, we're going to spend X, but that's what we plan probably to spend X times, you know, 20 % more. And then if it doesn't work out, what we'll do is just print money and figure our way out of it. And that's what we've been doing for a long time. We're debt dependent society. Sure, sure. With that being the case, you look at the potentials here. I was just looking at a tweet from Peter Schiff, obviously a big gold bug, Moody's lowered its rating, obviously, yes. Risks have been obvious for years on a treasury, it should be rated junk. If you hold them to maturity, guaranteed to lose, and the reason I want to show this is when you look at whether it's 10 -year treasuries or you look at something like gold or Bitcoin, obviously we've seen both of these assets in comparison to the S &P do very well this year. We're also getting ready to go into 2024, there's a lot of things happening in the blockchain industry and within the crypto markets that is probably going to shift around a little bit. You've also got a lot of technology that's been building over time. When you look at the markets like that and you see what people are expecting out of the S &P by the end of the year and through the first of next year, which people are, some analysts, anticipating an uptrend, what is your thought around the market condition right now? Do you feel like we've hit the bottom or is this something that we may see some more pain? Can we just go back to Peter Schiff for a second? Just for a moment. Peter Schiff, I know him well, he's been on my show many times. How many times is he going to be wrong with people just still believing him and wanting to believe him? I've known him for 15 years and it's been the same discussion over and over. The dollar is going to zero, the same thing. And why? He's talking his book. It's a good spiel and he has not been able to pivot off of that. Every once in a while, it looks like he's a flash of genius, right, that this is going to be. And it does make sense, by the way. What he says makes total sense. We haven't broken yet. We haven't broken anything yet. The Fed has been trying to tighten.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.

It's nice to be surrounded by good people. And there's a fine U .S. senator from Texas who we're very pleased to welcome back to the show. Ted Cruz has a book that you've got to read. I mean, as you look around and wonder about how wokeness is damaging and even destroying America, his book goes right to the heart of it, Unwoke, How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America. It's a real honor to welcome back to The Mike Gallagher Show, Republican senator from Texas, Senator Ted Cruz. All right. We've got book talking to get to. I've got a couple of co -hosts in here with me from a great organization that I'm sure you're familiar with, Senator Cruz, Job Creators Network, and the great Alfredo Ortiz and Gary Rabiner in here in the studio with me in Miami sort of helping to co -host and talking about our debate. And we'll have you chat with them for just a moment. First of all, Senator, congratulations on the book. What a time to be alive. I mean, I never thought we'd be able to see good versus evil in such a transparent way. The clarity of the battle that you've been talking about publicly for many years, good versus evil, has never been more profound. Well, Mike, you're exactly right. It's good to be with you. Thank you for having me back on the show. Listen, you're right. The world has gone insane. And I wrote this in America. I wrote the book because like millions of Americans, I'm looking at what's going on, going, what in the hell is happening? How did the world go so crazy? And what this book does is it examines how the radical left seized control of every major institution in America. And so each chapter, chapter one starts with university. And I call the universities the universities where it was created. It's where it mutated. It's where it spread. And from the universities, then I go to K through 12 education. And from there to journalism and from there to government, and from there to big business and then big tech, and then entertainment, movies, TV, sports, music, and then science. And then the last chapter is on China, and how China is a central nexus that links them all together. And what this book does is two things. Number one, it how explains and why the cultural Marxist seized control from within of each of those institutions.

You can't say it doesn't start with the RNC it has to start with the RNC but it's the NRSC, it's the RGA, it's the NRCC.
A highlight from 15 Authors of Titles on THR's List of the 100 Greatest Film Books of All Time
"Please welcome to the stage President and CEO of the American Film Institute, Bob Guzzale. Phone rings. It's Scott Feinberg from The Hollywood Reporter. He has an idea. And he's thinking about celebrating the 100 greatest film books of all time. I am immediately offended because top 100 movie lists are the AFI's real estate. But I did not say that to him. And the truth is I was just jealous because it was such and is such a good idea. And I thought anything AFI can do to help shine a proper light on this imperative work, well, we're in. But I did say to Scott, it's got to be A plus. It's no fake in this one. You have to have the most informed, the smartest jury. And he said, I got this. And he did. And today is a moment to celebrate that effort and the inspired writers who have brought history to life. Here to take his bow and to moderate the discussion, the executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Feinberg. Now Scott is going to bring out the honorees today, but he has given me the gift of introducing you to the first. For he is the founder of the American Film Institute. He was there in the White House Rose Garden when President Lyndon Johnson first announced the creation of AFI. He was there to write the very words that define the Institute's national mandate. And he was there to lead the organization through its early years. And it was then that he planted the seeds for the AFI Center for Film Studies, now the AFI Conservatory. And it was then that he instituted the Harold Lloyd Master Seminar Series at AFI, so named because the seminar's first guest was Harold Lloyd. Across 50 years, these seminars have proved a rich historical record of the art form and have inspired several books on THR's 100 greatest list, including two of his. Conversations with the great movie makers of Hollywood's golden age and conversations at the American Film Institute with the great movie makers the next generation. Please welcome George Stevens Jr. Welcome George Stevens Jr. and we are excited to hear from you in just a second. Now joining you up here, please welcome the author of 2020's The Big Goodbye Chinatown and the Last Years of Hollywood and with Janine Basinger, 2022's Hollywood The Oral History, Sam Wasson. Next up is the author of 2016's Powerhouse, The Untold Story of Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency, James Andrew Miller. Next up, we are going to have two authors coming to the stage because they are the co -authors of 1996's Hit and Run, How John Peters and Peter Goober Took Sony for a Ride in Hollywood. Please welcome Nancy Griffin and Kim Masters. Next up, he is, as you will guess from the title, his name. He is from 1969 and for many years thereafter the author of Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide. Please welcome Leonard Maltin. Here we are. Welcome. Next, we have the author of 1998's The Last Mogul, Lou Osterman, MCA and the Hidden History of Hollywood, Dennis McDougall. Next, we have the author of 1977's The Making of the Wizard of Oz, Movie Magic and Studio Power in the Prime of MGM and the Miracle of Production number 1060. Please welcome Algene Harmetz. Next, he is the Czar of Noire, the author of Dark City, The Lost World of Film Noire from 1998. Please welcome Eddie Muller. He is the author of the 1996 book Spike, Mike, Slackers and Dykes, a guided tour across a decade of independent American cinema, John Pearson. From 1988, the book The Player. Please welcome Michael Tolkien. From 1989, the author of Goldwyn, a Biography, A. Scott Berg. She is the author of the 2006 book A Killer Life, How an Independent Film Producer Survives Deals and Disasters in Hollywood and Beyond, Christine Vachon. We're going to give an extra warm welcome to this gentleman because it is his birthday. Please join us in welcoming George Harrell's Hollywood Glamour Portraits 1925 to 1992 author from 2013, Mark A. Vieira. From 1999, the book Conversations with Wilder, the author Cameron Crowe. Ladies and gentlemen, take it in because this has never been seen before and I don't know if anyone will be lucky enough to gather this amazing group again in one place. I'm so grateful to all of you for making the time to be here. Many of you came from great distances and congratulations on your work being on this list chosen by 322 people from the industry. We're talking about filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, executives, David Zaslav and many others, authors including just about everybody up here plus many others, academics. You can see the whole list online but the point is it is a cross -section of the business. There have been versions of this list that were chosen by film critics. There have been versions by other constituencies but this reflects the taste of our global film community. So thank you again for being here and I want to also just quickly thank Bob Guzzale, Julie Goodwin and everyone at AFI not only for going through all the efforts to make today possible but also for their other lists that Bob referenced because were it not for the original AFI Top 100 list. I don't think I would be here in a career as a film journalist because that really made me fall in love with the movies in the way that I hope this list inspires many other people to check out these books and the others on the list. So thank you to them and to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter for supporting the list and Terry Press for helping us put everything together and all of you for being here. So the way this is going to work is we are going to go down this line a few minutes with each author about the origin and impact and revelations of their book and then we are going to have a looser group conversation afterwards but we're going to begin with Mr. Stevens Jr. These two books that you wrote drawing from the seminars that Bob referenced are you know just fascinating looks at generations of filmmakers who have spoken to students at the AFI, what you know they've shared about their lives, their careers, tips for filmmaking. I wonder if you can just talk about how early on, well again just a little bit more actually about how those seminars started because you were there at the beginning and when it occurred to you that they might make good books.

I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country, he's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Do we want to win? That's such an obvious question. The great rush Limbaugh taught us that establishment Republicans deep down don't want to win. They want to be controlled opposition, have the media to cover fire for them, be invited to cocktail parties, go on codels, do debates with NBC News. Winning requires responsibility and deep down Republicans would rather be attachés, they would rather be puppets and controlled by the Democrats. This is why Donald Trump was such a threat to them. When Donald Trump actually won it was shock and awe throughout of Washington D .C. Wait, we actually won something? Donald Trump's insistence on winning is not something the Republican establishment wants. They would rather lose all throughout. The RNC leadership does not want to win. They have a track record of losing. Do I get any sort of, did you guys see Ronna or any of those cabal members get upset today? No, they're too busy doing a debate with NBC News because they hate you. Joining us now is Harmeet Dillon. Harmeet, welcome to the program. Harmeet, you sent out a tweet of you just with your hands up. What do you think? Yeah, I mean, I'm, look, I'm trying to be diplomatic here, I'm a member of the RNC, but in reality what I and all the other 156, 168 members of the RNC expect is that we are going to be going strong and doing the blocking and tackling for our candidates and creating the best situation for our candidates to win. And what happened yesterday was not that. Now, the RNC is not the only body whose job it is to elect a publicist. In fact, our main focus is supposed to be electing a president. I'll get to that in a minute. But we ought to be providing guidance and sort of a playbook for state parties to be able to get it right. For a while, to be frank, state parties have also not necessarily done their jobs in raising the money necessarily, but you know, you look at Kentucky, the Republican Governors Association's job is to raise the money and spend it so that our candidate does not outspend three or four to one. We need help with messaging. We need to update our playbook to make sure that we're gathering the ballots and getting those local density ballots in early, like the Democrats are doing, and that's not a volunteer activity anymore. Democrats are spending billions of dollars doing that over the last few election cycles, and we're just not even doing a drop in the bucket compared to that. So, you know, RNC's competence is necessary but not sufficient to win these elections. And I hope yesterday was a wake up call to all Republicans that we have less than one year to really get our act together and immediately engage and get this right. Otherwise, we are going to be looking at years of war and misery like we're suffering right now. So, Harmeet, just there's a debate tonight. It's kind of perplexing to do a debate with NBC News. Are other members of the RNC equally as confused? People are pretty puzzled by some of these choices to be frank, but most of us have no input in it. I used to be on the executive committee of the RNC. I'm not right now. We have a debate committee. I have a couple of friends on the debate committee and, you know, frankly even some of them are surprised by some of these choices, not just the venues that we're doing them for the platforms but also the specific moderators have been selected. It seems almost pointless or like fiddling while Rome is burning to be engaging with the far left here and letting them dictate the terms of our candidate selection. I'm not paying attention to that, to be honest with you. I'm really worried about what's happening in our country, what happened yesterday and figuring out how we can work around our national effort and make sure this gets done in the states or we're doing them. So, I'm going to ask a hypothetical that isn't so hypothetical. Hypothetical for you, not hypothetical for me. Is there a way to recall or remove an RNC chair this far into the game? You know, in the past, hypothetically, where there have been chairs who have failed completely, the executive committee of the Republican National Committee can certainly step in and, let's say, tighten the purse strings, set some boundaries, and make it very difficult. But, you know, Ronna got a mandate in January. She won pretty decisively. People ask me, are you going to confess that? No, I'm not going to confess. She definitely won the election with a significant percentage of the votes and there were major political operatives in our country on the Republican side whipping votes for her and there are many, many political consultants who really run the party who are very invested in the way it is. So, I don't really see that happening. So, you know, while it's convenient to pick a scapegoat we RNC for what happened yesterday, we got to get it together and not just complain on Twitter. We actually have to just understand this is the situation that we have and work around it. There are state parties. It is the job of state parties to get money and get it together and get a game play. Election laws vary by state. Some states have voter ID. Some states have 45 days of early voting. Whatever the situation is in your state, if you can't change it by election day, figure it out and learn how to master it. We've done that in California, for example. You know, we hate the system, but we've learned to figure out where we can win elections, ballot harvest, ballot cure, and get it done. And we do win those targeted elections. Yeah, Harmeet, I have a serious concern that we don't have the infrastructure necessary to win coming into next November. We are running out of time. You sent a tweet, you sent a tweet out some of this and you said this, which is the infrastructure is just not there. You know, we're not seeing the sort of consolidation of resources. And Harmeet, I know you have to be diplomatic because you're colleagues, all these people. But I'm going to say something I'm sure you're hearing. This is not just a grassroots concern. High level donors, the richest people, are actually saying very similar things as the grassroots as far as why do why are we not placing these investments? This is an unprecedented chapter where the rank and file precinct committeeman, the plumber, the electrician, the welder, the teacher, the mom is saying the same thing as the person worth a couple hundred million dollars. Are you hearing that too, Harmeet? I am hearing it. I spoke to some donor representatives just earlier this week of billionaire donors, reliable conservative donors. Quite a few of those folks supported change with the RNC. They didn't see it. And they're sitting on their hands right now. And that's unfortunate because these investments can't happen in October next year. They can't happen and they can't there can't be like, OK, let's call up some volunteer lawyers in September and hopefully they'll put down their laptops and go into the field and stuff. That's not how the Democrats do it. And since 2004, Democrat billionaires and big donors have been systematically and in a disciplined way, investing in legal warfare, investing in ballot harvesting, investing in smart tactical development of ballot measures and other bait, if you will, to get their voters to the polls, the high propensity voters. They have the money to pay the mules, gather these ballots and get them in. We are 20 years behind now. And, you know, I feel like watching a debate tonight is like fiddling while home is burning. It is not relevant to winning the election next year. Now, it has to be done. We can't skip this process. But, you know, I wonder why we're doing it with unfriendly moderators and platforms. It seems like a lost opportunity. Bottom line, if we have been investing in lawfare and in the army of ballot gatherers that we need, like, by the way, Turn Point Action is doing. Tyler's been out there doing that work. It's inspiring and it's important. There need to be a hundred Tyler's and a hundred Turn Point Actions out there doing this work in different states. There's, you know, some party patriots and other groups are doing it, but we just aren't doing enough of it. We have to have more. And yesterday needs to be a five alarm fire wake up call. Do not expect largesse from D .C. to save our butts. OK. Organize at the state and local level and find the local lawyers. And I can help with that. Find the people necessary and prepare the ground. Because if we don't, I mean, literally as we speak, my partners are flying around the country defending the right of President Trump to be on the ballot. This is extraordinary that the banana republics, that the regime tries to prevent the most popular opposition candidate from being free or from being on the ballot. That's what's happening in America right now. So, you know, that's that's what's at stake. And if you get, you know, let's not just use Twitter as a sport and get on there. Oh, you know, it's X person's fault. It's Y person's fault. That doesn't move the needle. What moves the needle is putting on your big girl in boy pants, getting out there, helping raise the money and helping be the person who organizes the precincts, finds out which neighbors aren't voting and why and persuade them. And if they're not even going to do that, then find a way to persuade them to turn their ballot over and you get it in for them. That's what it's going to take. Harmeet Dillon, wish you were RNC chair. We'd be in a much better spot. Thank you so much. See you soon. My pleasure. Thanks for having me.
A highlight from The Economic Impact of Business Owner Outmigration
"It seems like our local GOP leadership, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, Mark Poloncarz was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? ["Oh, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa"] Hey, welcome back. Mike Lomas, Glenn Wiggle actually taking off, Ron Rheinstein in with me. We've got a special guest on the live line here. We'll talk a little bit about what happened last night. Erie County stuck on stupid again. The pain, the pain. Nationwide though, just not Erie County. Yeah, we're going to talk to an optimist in a little bit who's a workhorse here in Erie County, Nancy Ortecelli. But I got to be honest, I texted her this morning. I'm like, I feel like drinking. And it's like seven o 'clock in the morning. Can we take a personal day? Can we take a personal day? You're just so beat up. I mean, it's just, you know, it's like, you have to ask yourself, how could these people be this dumb? Well, how could you be this dumb? And it's not even rhetorical. Everything you've touched has turned to shit and you continue to vote for the same exact shit. It's just unreal. Because here's, this is just from a sleepless knife yesterday into today. People that left the cities, they're just like, I got to get away from the crime. I got to get away from the poverty, all the above. And their shitty voting has metastasized like a cancer in the suburbs. And it just keeps going and going and going. Well, they don't show up. That's what's so frustrating. Well, there's also that. I mean, you look at the numbers and it's like, how in the world do you not show up? I'm actually going through my phone yesterday. I'm saying, don't forget to vote. Don't forget to vote. Who's on the ballot? That's what I've got to think about. Like, how could you be that freaking stupid? I know. But the other, I mean, even if you look at an area where I grew up in Chictawaga and yes, the demographic has changed substantially since I left in 1998, but for the fact of the matter of the third world that has been imported, the taxes, the last county executive or not, the supervisor, she hammered two increases on the property assessments. It's back to back. Highest taxes in the country. And on top of that, the last one, because she's, again, the politicians, how they're just full of shit. Oh, that's our bad. You know, we're not even, well, maybe up for a second. Oh, we're not going to do another reassessment for two years and then literally the next year, here comes the next increase and all our bad, but we won't do it again. However, you got to pay. Yeah, sorry about that. And that's, and you look at the votes that were cast for supervisor. And I mean, again, how close it was and it'll go to recount. That's it? That's the amount of people that voted? Yeah, well, the GFP didn't do anything with absentee ballots there. So it'll go the other way. Before I forget, download our app, search Financial Guys Media in your app store and be sure to click notifications so you don't miss our weekly media drops. So don't forget about our app. Let me introduce Nancy Oreticelli. I was able to grab her. I know she's extremely busy. Nancy, what is your title today? Besides a miss of everything. I don't know, like, what is your exact title? You're everywhere, you know, constitution coalition, all this stuff. What is your, do you have a title? I mean, Antifa has called me a lot of things. So I know I work for an assemblyman, for assemblyman David DiPietro. I am on the executive board of the Erie County conservatives. I do, I'm the president of the constitutional coalition of New York state. So yeah, I do a lot of things. So that's who I am. I just, I believe in freedom and liberty and no matter what it looks like, I'm not a person who gives up and talking to a couple of people this morning, they're like, why do you sound so happy? I was like, well, I'm used to this. This is how it is here in Erie County. It's nothing new. It's not like - I know, you'd think all of us between the political environment here and then the bills and sabers, we'd be used to disappointment, right? We're like, let's roll out of that. Like, all right, I get it. Let me ask you, let's start out with the county executive race. I mean, what happened there? You know, you can't, first of all, he's literally, the cops are showing up because he's restraining a woman. We had people die in a storm because of his mismanagement. We had a record amount of businesses closed because of the way he handled COVID, right? I mean, you can't ask. And then he drops off all these illegal immigrants. They, 13 out of 50 of them get arrested and brought it up on charges. They destroy a hotel. I mean, it's like, okay, maybe you're not happy with Chrissy, but boy, you have to be some kind of a mental midget to say that's a good - And crimes on the rise. And crimes on the rise, record number. We don't want to enforce laws. Here's your appearance ticket. Yeah, number two in the entire country for Carstola. Number one is our neighbor Rochester. Number two, so what the heck happened? So people are misinformed. And it's like you just said, when you called and texted people and they said, who's on the ballot? Nobody cares anymore because it seems like our local GOP leadership are, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, polling cars was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? And I think the GOP needs to get out in the community more. I mean, they've had their get out the vote rallies that of consisted maybe 20 to 25 committee members. It wasn't the community. Do you know what I'm saying? And they don't - No, I get it. I was gonna say, but how - Nothing beats a good sailing hot dog. Yeah, here's your meat cylinder, go vote for four years and more tyranny. It's true, it's true. Well, that's, you're right. But the thing is, is, but then you take it a step further. You go fill up your car, holy shit, part of my life. That's even higher than it was a month ago. You go to the grocery store and our household, we do okay. But every time, between my wife, myself, and our two kids, and here's four bags, that was 300 bucks. Daughter, oldest daughter and my wife were down in Tennessee last week. My daughter was looking at the possibility of University of Tennessee. And she says to me, she said, "'Dad, do you know gas is a dollar a gallon cheaper there?' So I went through this whole thing about, you know, it's taxes. She's like, you're kidding me, just taxes. I said, yep, yep, that's the difference, difference between one state and the other. And every time somebody puts gas in their tank, it's an extra 30, 40 bucks here, as opposed to down there. So - So that's you and that's me, but that's not the urban voters. The urban voters are in poverty because of Democrat policies. But yeah, it's still vote that way. But they still vote that way because they'll come and give you free stuff a few times a year. They'll give you hot dogs. They'll give you backpacks. They'll give you this and that. A lot of them maybe don't have vehicles to fill up. Do you know what I'm saying? That's a fair point. But it's, you know what? Now that we're talking, Nancy, that also works against us too. I mean, we are top 10 in the country in poverty. Yeah, top three, I think. Per capita. Yeah, the city of Buffalo is, I think, two or three. Here's the, you know, our fair city. To your point, and I think you mentioned this, you know, the GOP will run on reducing the taxes. And Nancy, you said, these people don't pay taxes. That's true. That's not a problem for them, right? Although it is funny when you interview some of them, they actually think they do. They'll say, well, it's not fair. We're paying our fair share. Like, now you don't pay any federal taxes, and you don't pay any state taxes. If you look at it, and this isn't to be negative, but, and again, money's money. And let's just say they make $50 ,000, they're married filing joint. With your standard deduction, you're probably, you have $25 ,000 maybe in taxes total. Yeah, well, most of them. But that's what I'm just saying. And then you're probably getting a real fund. That's right. Most of them are public assistance. That's right. Talk about the women vote. I mean, you know, you look at other places, other parts of the country, and the women have really rallied together to really change things. And it just, you know, last night, I was really hoping that like town of Amherst, town of Cheektowaga, the women would step up and say, okay, we've got a guy who's clearly, you know, he's abused women. He's threatened a process server, a female process server that he's going to shoot her. And then the cops are showing up. I mean, well, I would think the moms would say, and it's amazing to me, I'm watching his speech last night, I'm thinking all these hypocrite Democrats, they're all, oh, believe the women, believe the women, unless it's a Democrat that can shove the left -wing agenda down your throat, then we don't believe them. So here's my take, two points I want to make. You know, talking about the women vote, I had a phone call the other week and somebody, it was actually Stephon, and he said, do you know a strong woman leader in Western New York who could do calls for Chrissy? And I was like, no, do you? I don't know any woman. There is no strong woman. I said, what about Lynn Dixon? They already had her. And I had thought about it. Mike, you probably remember a few years ago, I came to visit you. I wanted to start a women's group, but the coalition took off. And you know, if there's any women out there, women who would like to start a women's group, I'll help. I mean, I can't run it, but I'll help to get strong women elected. But there isn't. And then you have Moms for Liberty here in Erie County, but for some reason, the GOP will not unite with the grassroots organizations. Moms for Liberty have been phenomenal across the nation because the establishment has partnered with them. I don't know why they won't do it here. I don't get it. And if you would just unite, and it's the same issue with the conservatives and the Republicans, it's no secret we are outnumbered by Democrats. And so what happens with the conservatives and the Republicans who should be working together? The Republicans try to take over the legislature seat that was supposed to be conservative. You know, it was supposed to go to Lindsay Larrigo and they fought it with Jim Malcheski. I like Jim Malcheski and Lindsay Larrigo. They're both great people, but the GOP spent so much money on that primary that they had nothing to give to Chrissy to get her name out during this election because nobody knew who Chrissy was. And then they tried to do a party takeover in Evans where they switched a bunch of Democrats to conservatives, the GOP there did, to try to take over that party. And Ralph Larrigo did a lawsuit and the lawsuit is not finished yet, but the GOP candidate lost miserably. So they're focusing on things that should be uniting us, but they're dividing us instead of uniting. Look at West Connecticut and Lancaster. Those towns won amazingly for their town boards because the conservative committees and the Republican committees there are united and they work together. And I don't understand what the whole issue was with the Republicans trying to take out the conservatives this summer. It was baffling to me. So instead of focusing on Mark polling cars, you're gonna try to take a legacy away from a conservative candidate that it was already in the bag for them. You're gonna focus on a fight that was already a constitutionally minded candidate that was in there. It was a given, what a waste of resources and what a waste of time. That's a shame. Yeah, that's a shame. Absolutely. Well, the financial guys are here to help. I'd like to get you on the radio as well. We'll find that, hopefully we can find a strong female. That's what we need. You need the female vote. I mean, last night, the female vote shows up because Mark had been called, accused of holding a woman, I don't know, hostage or whatever. I mean, holding against her will, but they didn't show up. And they're like, God, that's so frustrating. The last thing before I let you go, the frustrating part to me and folks like Ron is we're in the business community, right? And so we're constantly getting involved. We're constantly trying to do our part. And sometimes I feel guilty because I look at somebody like you and I'm like, oh, I feel like a slug. But yeah, like, oh man, I really do. But the business community, I am just at awe this morning that they didn't show up at all. I mean, at all. How many restaurants did Mark destroy during COVID? How many gyms did he destroy? Now, some of these folks were strong enough to make it through, but I'm gonna be honest with you. If I owned a restaurant, I am never forgetting that. Now, I might be a little bit different of an animal because his picture and Gal Bernstein's picture would be on the front door and there would be a message that says, hey, if you're these people and you're walking in, do not bother, right? I mean, that's where I would be. But I get it. Some of these folks say, well, you know, I don't wanna be that aggressive. Okay, could you send Christie a hundred bucks? Could you put a sign out front of the restaurant to say, hey, just saying, I mean, like, not one. Well, that was the fault of the GOP, that they don't know how to fundraise. They really don't. And like I said before, their fundraisers consisted of just their own committee members. The public doesn't want anything to do with the GOP because the GOP has alienated them. Now, Michael Crocker is a good guy. I've met him. I've worked with him. He's really good, but he's got a lot to fix from the previous leadership. And yeah, I wouldn't want that job. I know. I know. You know what? It's funny you said that because I was talking to Glenn about it and Glenn's like, oh, they needed this. The hardest part about that is so many people have left. When you look at, and I'll say for America, I think it's a great thing, right? I mean, Florida is gaining delegates. New York is losing delegates. Florida had a $21 billion surplus. New York is going to go bankrupt at some point. I don't know when, but the math doesn't work, right? You cannot have the, and the 25 % of people that have left, they're all the top taxpayers, right? They're the ones paying the bills. Mike, this all sounds racist. Stop. That's right. Math is racist. But I mean, that's, even if the people that leave and, you know, from clients and friends and family that are in these Southern states, they still care, but they got up and left. Oh yeah. I mean, it's just - Well, they're not voting, right? They're not participating. Even if voting, but like, even if they've sent a check, like you said to Chrissy, but that's just the whole thing. They're gone. They're gone. I know, but you have, for the people, and I guess maybe this is where my deficiency comes with this, is that I'm like occupying common sense, I guess, way too much. But how the hell do people, again, you look at this, this sobering statistics or drive around the area, what the hell is coming here? Nothing. What is leaving here? A lot. A lot. What is beneficial that is derived from low -T polling cars? Let's just go over the last five years, the scandemic. How many people were affected by that? And how many businesses were lost? How many people, again, how many people have been Vax injured? Because, well, I can't go to the Bills game or the Sabres game, but seriously, I'm gonna roll up my sleeve. You were able to see the playoffs wave, but now you got my old car died. Or, again, my employer's forcing me, because this shit bag in City Hall is following crime wave Kathy, or Andrew, I killed your grandmother, Cuomo. Then you take it further. How many people died in nursing homes alone? One of my best friend's sister died in a hospital alone. Why is that, you may ask? Oh, because she tested positive for the Wuhan sniffles. Yes, I know. And these stories are out there. Yeah, I know. And yet there is zero messaging. And this is from Chrissy. This is from the GOP. This is from any Republican candidate that you can absolutely, and again, voting aside, fundraising aside, but if you got that message out there, debt would resonate. You need money to do that. You do, which is fair. And you need lots of it. I said from day one, I said for Chrissy to win, she probably needs a million bucks. And I think that's a fair number. And I think she got a total of about 150 ,000 from the business community. She was well, well, well underfunded. And I don't know, I was down there last night, I don't know if you got a chance to see her speech last night, but you could tell she cared. There was a few conservatives are sending messages, oh, she can't cry. I'm like, bullshit, she can't cry. She can do whatever she wants to do. You have the stones to step up. Then I was able to see her in the hallway before I said, Chrissy, that she's like, oh man, I feel like a failure. I said, Chrissy, I said, there's a million people in this freaking town, a million people. Do you know who was the only one that stepped up against this piece of shit, Mark Poloncarz? You. So don't let anybody ever tell you that you shouldn't do what you wanna do. There are so many armchair quarterbacks that oh, I should have done this, should have done that. I'm like, Chrissy, you're the only one. Guess what? Mike Lomas could have ran. I could have ran. I could have signed up. I didn't. Now - I feel like I told you to.

"With Bloomberg, you get the story behind the story, the story behind the global birth rate, behind your EV battery's environmental impact, behind sand, yeah, sand, you get context. And context changes everything. Go to Bloomberg .com to get context. This is Bloomberg Radio. There's a little shift underway here that I think we'd want to be mindful of. We could see some positive action through the end of the year. The macro heightened uncertainty means investors do need to be nimble. We don't think we're getting any more rate hikes from the Fed. It's far too early to be talking about easing, so just be aware of that thing in the tail. This is Bloomberg Surveillance with Tom Kean, Jonathan Ferro and Lisa Abramowitz. What a tone shift in the last week, just amazing to see. Live from New York City this morning. Good morning, good morning. For our audience worldwide, this is Bloomberg Surveillance on TV and radio. Alongside Lisa Abramowitz, I'm Jonathan Ferro. Your equity market this morning, negative a third of 1 % over the last week. Gains, gains, gains, day after day. Six days of it on the S &P 500. Brahmo, seven days of it on the NASDAQ 100. And we were talking yesterday, is this real? And people were saying it really depends on what happens at the yield space. I've got to say, a tone shift, yes, but every guest who's come on set with us pretty much either rolls their eyes or looks exhausted. Because there's no sort of clear sense unless you have a conviction that comes true of what exactly is behind some of these moves and how durable they are. It is difficult to come up with a narrative behind the strength because it will be a narrative that will get disproved within a day. Well, the consensus for you right now is the Fed is done. Rick Reader at BlackRock, the Fed is done. Even Andrew Hollenhorst of Citi says the Fed is done. Retmax Neil Dutta says we can discuss surgical rate cuts. We'll catch up with Neil later this hour. I love the tweets, the posts on X, call them whatever you want. This one here, the odds of an alien tea party in our backyard are as sensible as expecting a rate hike. That was momentum down to run on X a moment ago.
A highlight from Out from the Crowd
"I invite you to open in your Bibles to Mark chapter three. For our sermon today, we're gonna be looking at verse seven through verse 19. I'm gonna read the passage and pray, jump right into sermon. Hear now the word of God. Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea and a crowd followed from Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem and Edomia and from beyond the Jordan and from around Tyre and Sedon. When the great crowd heard all that he was doing, they came to him. And he told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, lest they crush him. For he had healed many so that all who had diseases pressed around him to touch him. And whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, you are the son of God. And he strictly ordered them not to make him known. And he went up on the mountain and he called to him those whom he desired and they came to him. And he appointed 12 whom he also named apostles so that they might be with him. And he might send them out to preach and have authority to cast out demons. He appointed the 12, Simon to whom he gave the name Peter, James, the son of Zebedee and John, the brother of James to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is sons of thunder, Andrew and Philip and Bartholomew and Matthew and Thomas and James, the son of Alphaeus and Thaddeus and Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot who betrayed him.

I have delved into the question of how good a weekend or a good any day one could have when the world is so filled with evil and one has to try despair as a sin, as I have noted on a number of occasions based on my Bible commentary. Hi, everybody. Good to be with you. This is late breaking. I normally don't have the show driven by news as it breaks, but this is an important—many of them are important, but this is, I believe, worthy of immediate attention. This is from Newsweek. Conservative social media personality Steven Crowder teased the release of a manifesto allegedly written by an accused school shooter in Nashville, Tennessee, where six victims died earlier this year. Boy, I'll tell you, Newsweek is really—this sentence is so gingerly phrased. Let's see. The manifesto is allegedly written by an accused shooter, not the shooter. Six million victims died, not were murdered. In a video posted Monday, that's today, to YouTube, Crowder said the manifesto was leaked and shared screenshots of portions of the document which was believed to be written by Audrey Hale, 28, whom authorities identified as the shooter. They also said Hale, who died at the scene, once attended the school. By the way, that is interesting that they say allegedly. You say allegedly when somebody is about to stand trial, but if the person was shot at the scene, you don't say allegedly. What was Audrey Hale doing there? Checking out school curricula? No, it's a little too ginger. Anyway, I will be reading the manifesto here on this show. I wish that I wouldn't have to, Crowder said in the video. In a post to X, formerly Twitter, Crowder shared other images of the manifesto, including one part that said, I hope I have a high death count. Newsweek has been unable to independently verify that Metro Nashville Police Department spokesperson told Newsweek that the police are unable to confirm the manifesto, but said they are actively looking into the matter. Here's a question for Nashville police. Why didn't you release it immediately? Some authorities had it, and my suspicion is because the manifesto reveals, as was suspected, a left -winger and it was a trans person. So the left sort of has the view, padona misa gosh, there are no enemies on the left. And whereas if the manifesto were some racist, anti -black screed, we would have known about it immediately. So three children and three adults at Nashville's Covenant School were murdered. She later died from gunshot wounds. Shortly after the shooting occurred, this is again from this Newsweek article, police said that they had recovered a manifesto believed to have been written by hell. So why, why was it never released? The ongoing investigation into the March 27 murders of six persons inside the Covenant School continues to show, from all information currently available, that killer Audrey Hale acted totally alone. That's not the question. Well, I'll report to you. There is a report somewhere, but since I haven't seen it, I can't, I won't report it yet, about what it revealed. And it seems to me that if the report is correct, it was a big anti -white kid screed. All right. So we live in an age of moral confusion, as I have warned all of my life. And the charge against Israel that it commits genocide against the Palestinians which a charge that has been made for decades, this is not new to the current war against Hamas, is another gigantic lie of the left. But the truth is not a left -wing value. So I have data here from Statista, which has no political bias that I know of. You agree with me? I don't know. Okay, fine. Statista Infographic Newsletter. Statista puts out statistics. So this is from 2020. Growth of Palestine. Let's see now. The need for peace continues to grow in urgency as Palestine's population is growing at a larger rate than Israel. Jewish and Arab populations are on a collision course of parity in the coming decades, with Arab Israelis also growing faster than Jewish Israelis and gaining more voting power. Then there's a chart, Growth of Palestine. It begins in 1960, and the green is Palestine, the blue is Israel. They have gone from 1 .1 million to 5 .1 million in 2020. So there is a growth of essentially five times growth quintupled since 1960. The Jewish population has quadrupled, has gone up four times the Arab population of the area five times. Have you ever heard of a genocide where the people being genocided have a population growth of 5x? The lie is so grandiose, but you have to know something. The people screaming it believe it, especially those who are Palestinian or from other Arab or Muslim countries. They believe their lies. Read David Price Jones' book, The Closed Circle. You'll see that he's an Arab expert. He lived an exaggeration and lies as being very frequently in the public sphere conflated. Anyway, we're catching up. The truth is that a left wing value in the left wing dominates academia and the media. So much for the charge of genocide. The only attempt at genocide of the Palestinians and their Muslim supporters around the world, they wish to commit genocide against the Jews of Israel, perhaps all Jews in the world, but certainly Jews of Israel. That is the only genocide that can be alleged in the Middle East. Well, there was one, but I don't know. Yeah, I guess you'd call it the Middle East, of course. Do you remember the Yazidis, how they were wiped out by ISIS? Well, virtually, yeah. There was a real, let's put, an ethnic cleansing, let's put it that way. Genocide. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free is a call for genocide. It is a call for the eradication of the Jewish state. There are 22 Arab states, from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean, but there's no room for a Jewish state the size of New Jersey. People just always need to remember that. Should there be a 24th Arab state, one that never existed in the history of the world? I hear some Palestinian speakers actually saying, we are the descendants of the Canaanites. Did you know that? You can meet a living Canaanite. Can you meet a parasite and a Jebusite? He said he was a Jebusite? Is Arafat said he was a Jebusite? I didn't know the man had a sense of humor.

And the New York Times reports he urged his former aides to, quote, take in the whole truth, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. Would he have done that in World War II? Strike a balance between the killings? Look at how many German civilians we killed. Look at how many Japanese civilians we killed. Would he have said that? I don't know, but to me it would be the same thing. The moral difference between the allies and the Nazis and the allies and the Japanese was no greater than the moral difference between Israel and Hamas. We live in the age of moral relativism. It's infected almost the entire intellectual class. I saw it when I was at graduate school at Columbia University, and professors generally equated the U .S. and the Soviet Union. It was not a battle, the Cold War in their view, between freedom and tyranny, or between, if you will, light and dark, with all the darkness that exists, obviously, in everyone and in every country. There was an unbridgeable gulf between light and dark between the United States and the Soviet Union, but they would not agree to that. It was a superpower battle or a battle of two economic systems, communism and capitalism, as if they are morally equivalent, let alone just equally effective. Well, there are people who build their society with communism and slaughter tens of millions of their people while doing it, and there's another free society which is infinitely wealthier. I remember that when I wanted to get soda from a soda machine when I was there during the Cold War, and I as know that I speak Russian, and so the machine would say, госированая вода, gas gaseous water, meaning like sparkling water. The machines were quite common in Moscow, I don't know about the rest of the Soviet Union, and there was a plastic cup like you would have in a house there, and everyone who got the sparkling water used that cup. Isn't that fascinating? One cup. I drank from it, you know me, I mean, you know, they reported internationally that I, for fork drops in a restaurant, I will actually use it. I am not, shall we say, a hypochondriac, struck but it me as an example, they didn't have the money to have a paper cup used every time and thrown away. Incidentally, I'll tell you what else moved me. I will acknowledge this, because truth is the number one obligation. Nobody stole the cup. I found that fascinating. Here's this former aide to take in the whole truth, unquote. This is Barack Obama this weekend, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. What Hamas did was horrific and there's no justification for it, Mr. Obama said, and what is also true is that the occupation and what's happening to Palestinians is unbearable. Really, what is happening to Palestinians that is unbearable? I'm not talking about the current war in Gaza, which they brought upon themselves just like the Germans did and the Japanese did. Unbearable? Really? Has he or anybody he talked to gone to visit the West Bank? Is life on the West Bank unbearable? Didn't strike me as that way, been there a number of times. All I remember was a lot of cranes building new buildings. And they're obviously having a lot of kids. Generally, having a lot of kids in an unbearable situation tend not to go hand in hand. What is true is that there are people right now who are dying, who have nothing to do with what Hamas did. There were Germans who died who had nothing to do with what Hitler did. That's correct and you blame Hitler for their deaths. You blame Hamas for the death of Palestinians in Gaza. All their money is used to buy rockets and dig tunnels everywhere, including right under hospitals. If there is such a thing as evil, Hamas is it. But after all, if you raise a generation to believe that America is evil, then evil loses its meaning, doesn't it? That is what has happened. Okay. There are no comments. It's interesting they don't have comments on me on this particular story. Dennis Ross is a major figure in Middle Eastern diplomacy. For 35 years, this former U .S. envoy to the Middle East, who has generally been critical of Israel, not anti -Israel, but critical of Israel. For 35 years, I've devoted my professional life to U .S. peacemaking policy and conflict resolution planning. Nothing has preoccupied me like finding a peaceful and lasting solution between Israel and the Palestinians. In the past, I might have favored a ceasefire with Hamas during a conflict with Israel, but today it is clear to me that peace is not going to be possible now or in the future as long as Hamas remains intact and in control of Gaza.

"Yes, we are back. Another episode of dice it up, you know me, you know, you do know that I'm a huge University of Texas Homer and while my family was probably upset with the result of the game the other night, what a joy it is to watch our guests play basketball. My God. Sarah Andrews. Junior guard from Bailey university. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. So I will not what I did to your horns. Hello. I'm gonna let you get into that whenever you ask, we can get into it. It's all good. It's all good. No, no, no. It was an incredible performance, and I feel like every time Texas was about to make a run, like Sarah just went off with some crazy shot that I don't think you got a single foul call, though, on any of those finishes. I did. I think I deserved a few a ones, but it's okay. I agree. I've said my things on Twitter about the big 12 officials, but I'll keep it quiet for now. I don't want another conference being mad at me for stuff I say. Anyway, so Sarah, I Bailey, you're third year production is crazy. I mean, you're playing a ton compared to your freshman year on a team that went almost to the national championship, take me back to what really brought you to Baylor. I mean, I know the year before you got there, they won a national championship, I guess, in between COVID years, right? So what is it about Baylor and Waco for people who don't know about Waco other than what's the show that's filmed there? Chip and Joan. When they do the houses, yes. Yeah. I don't know the show, but yeah, chip and Joanne sounds familiar. So what is it? What drew you to Baylor? First and foremost, I think the biggest thing for me was I wanted to be able to play in front of my family. I wanted them to be able to see me grow as a woman on and off the court. And then second was being away from home, you know, I wanted to have a second family. I wanted to be like, who was I going to lean on when times got rough? Because I knew I wasn't going to be able to run home. So who was I going to leave when times got rough? And I had also seen what coach monkey had did with the guards before me. I went to the same high school as Odyssey and Alexis and had the same coaches do. And they were just people that I looked up to. And I saw the great things that she had there with them, and I was like, I want to be a part of that. Honestly, these numbers that Baylor are like John dropping. When you go back and look at and she was defensive player of the year a couple of times too, I think. Yes. I mean, I can go down a rabbit hole that honestly, but I did not realize y'all went to the same high school. That's nutty. That's a team. So you all were there, did y'all cross pass like your freshman year or no? Oh, we did when I got high school. She became like a mentor and a big sister to me and still to this day like I call her every day. She gives me advice. No matter what it is, she tells me what I need to hear and not what I want to hear because at the end of the day, she's played at the level of where I want to be at. She was hooping AAU this weekend, just absolutely. Yeah, she's putting some numbers up. Yeah. I feel like Odyssey is like timeless. Life, you just her game is so timeless. It translates so well over the years. She always finds a way back in the W, always finds a way to be on a team that's doing well where she needs to play minutes. I feel like that's a really cool mentor for you to have. Yes, very yes. I love her to death. Yeah. Your Baylor team though. I mean, the names on that roster are ridiculous. I mean, you got it's littered with WNBA players. And players who are stars that still a Bailey like yourself and Caitlin, but DJ nay, who is one of ISIS good friends. Connecticut ties. You've got Melissa. And of course, our first advertising up guest Dede, who we love. Yeah. You should ask Sarah. What was the question we asked about that NCAA tournament run? Oh, just, I feel like, you know, around this time, everybody's getting into tournament time, right? You're preparing for conference tournaments and just how to make a run, like how to have endurance. I kind of wanted to ask you is, you know, one of the leaders of your team, so they depend on you for a lot of different things, both sides of the basketball. How do you have endurance during this time? Like, how do you make sure that you and your team aren't fatigued, mentally or physically to keep it going? I think it's about matured in that area. You had to learn how to take care of your body. You got to eat right. You got to get the proper sleep. And you have to sacrifice the things you want to do for the things you need to do. Like, hey, we might want to go out and have fun, but we know we got to get ready and prepare for the NCA tournament. And it's about going to the tournament. You have to understand everybody's zero zero. Records don't matter at that point. It's about on that night who's playing a best basketball because anybody can be beat. So I think the biggest thing is about keeping everybody's mindset on, knowing like teams are going to go and run is basketball. It's just about staying together and being connected and just trusting the process. Yeah. And then what about for you personally? I mean, we've seen you have some crazy big games this season. We've seen you be the Naismith player of the week, ESPN player of the week, national player of the week. You know, just going into tournament time, you're one of the names that people will know probably, right? Depending on whoever you play. So how do you keep yourself at the top, but also expecting to see a level of pressure and a level of attention no matter who you're going to blame. I think it's like what you said, how my teammates look at me as the leader on the floor. If I look like things are going wrong and I'm worried, then they're going to assume everything's worried but if I'm staying calm and they make me a better player and a better person, they find me in spots and make my life easier when they're making layups when they're getting me open shots and I think I just feed off of them and I just want to be the best version of them so we can go out and win. I think it's about staying consistent every night in the tournament. I think I have to build off this Texas game and just be consistent from here on out.

"Them because how they play being so different from how other teams play is a competitive advantage I think for them and it's one of the reasons why when presented with the choice of Sadiq bay or Gary Payton the second in a vacuum, I thought they should have taken Sadiq bay, they disagreed because Gary Payton knows how to play. You put all those pieces together, Kendra, a starting lineup that works, a bench rotation that works. The numbers are sitting there screaming if they ever get whole, watch the hell out and the numbers just, there's such a dissonance between the numbers and the record, but you know what? I'm listening to the numbers and I say, if they ever get whole, watch the hell out of the numbers. Go with the numbers. Listen, I was looking at the standing the other day and kind of playing like pretend matchups and stuff. Like kind of like you were just saying, I think outside of the Phoenix end of I'm the lawyer is the one team I really don't want to see in the first round of the Phoenix Suns. Other than that, I think that they have a good chance against any of those Western Conference teams. And once they are healthy, once they start everything starts cooking together, even as they get whole again, I agree, there's no reason why you should be counting this team out. The potential on paper is. I'm telling them in almost, but I'll tell you this, Kendra. At my brain can not decide yet if Phoenix Golden State in the first round. IE Durant Golden State in the first round. Right. Is going to be such incredible theater that I want it or that the revisiting of Durant's free agency decision is going to be so eye rolling bad and repetitive that I would like them to avoid each other until the last possible. I can't decide. It's a tough, it's a tough thing. I mean, would you like because then the other side you would do you want like a Dallas Phoenix series earlier on with kind of how that's been brewing. I agree with the storyline part of it. The KD breed and see warriors would be a topic of conversation nearly every day for like a week as long as this series

"All right, let's talk about the most confounding team the most baffling team that I think I can even remember in my 13 years or whatever it is of covering the NBA. I just have never I've never encountered a team that just I just don't get it. I don't get it. I don't get it. Kendra Andrews, you cover this team to Golden State Warriors. How are you? Thank you for joining us. I'm good, Doc. How are you? Well, I'm still confused, Kendra. I'm still confused because Steph Curry made his long awaited ballyhooed return to a team that had won without him one 5 in a row all at home. At home. In their home. Without him, they are 14 and 12 for the season without Steph Curry, which is amazing considering it looked early on like how are we going to score? We're dead. We're not going to be able to put it up any points, there are two games R 500 without Steph and three games over 500 for the season. They are 34 and 31. This is the defending champions, by the way. Defending NBA champions. Yes. 34 and 31. 14th in offense, that's not bad. 13th in defense, which for all the hand wringing and whatever about how they'll they can't stop family, they don't get any rebounds all my God. They're 13th and defense. That's pretty good. 11th in that rating. 11th. That's almost top ten. That's pretty good. 27 and 7 at home. And 7 and 24 on the road. With another road Lawson Steph's ballyhooed return, they went on the road and they lost to the Lakers without LeBron. They have the third toughest schedule remaining in the Western Conference. They have three more road games than home games, which is kind of like saying you might as well just pencil them in for three automatic more losses than whatever. And these are big, big games because although it feels like all they've righted the ship, they're good. The projection systems that I use, there's a site called playoff status that I really love basketball reference everybody knows that one have them like about 50 50 and a little bit less maybe to avoid the play in, which means 50% in the play in and they don't need anyone to tell them that if you're in the play and I don't care if you're 7th 8th, 9th or tenth, it's not a great place to be. Kendra. Do you have any answers for me? Because I just don't, I just don't understand. I don't understand. I wish I wish I had all the answers. It's funny. I did NBA countdown radio yesterday and I was on with them and they said, we asked you this before if you had all the answers you'd be on Steve Cruz coaching staff because no one seemed to have an answer real quick. One, I think with that schedule, the other thing you have to look at, all but three of those games are against Western Conference opponents who are also in this super tight race for either a play in or a lower playoff spot. But it's getting really hard to find the answers. And even when you talk to the team and you ask the team like I asked draymond just last night after the Lakers game. About this road, this crazy road split, and I said, what is a tangible thing you can point to to say why? And he said, the same thing, if I knew the answer, you bet I would tell you, you bet I'd be yelling it in the locker room yelling it from the mountain tops of what it is. And it's hard to put your finger on because like you said, their record without stuff isn't bad, right? They're about 500 T with him and without him. So it's not, okay, well steps missing. That's not it. You know, you look at other people that they're missing. I think Andrew Wiggins is absent and honestly even before he stepped away from the team, his production, this season, has just plummeted from last year and he was such an important part of the team last year. They're missing E players like Gary Payton the second who yes, he is back on the roster, but it's not playing. You lost auto Porter junior. You lost other guys who were really key contributors both on offense and defense. And that's not to say they don't have a good roster, but I think when you look at all the things that made them such a dangerous team last year, they're still trying to figure out how to get there. You know, execution has been a really big issue with this team for most of the season and they finally figured out how to start executing at home when everyone's on their side, but on the road still in crucial moments because they haven't been blown out on the road, really. It's all come down to really tight games that are lost in the last few minutes. On the road, they're just really struggling to execute down the stretch and it's resulting in games like Sundays against the Lakers. Yeah, but when you're playing on the road in your losing tight games to Charlotte and Detroit, I don't really care that they're tight games. It's just like, can you just win the game? Could you maybe win you're the Golden State Warriors? Can you just win? So let's start with the most important question facing the team before we get into the fun stuff. One of the reasons that I've been just continuously optimistic about the warriors that as despite mounting evidence, I just will say they're a run is coming. A run is coming. It's going to happen and maybe I guess it just did win 5 in a row. At home. At home. Is that their starting 5? In now just 331 minutes because Wiggins has been out for so long is plus 22 per 100 possessions is maybe the best starting 5 in basketball. That's obviously Steph, clay. How about clay, by the way? All year, all year long. Including on TV in a rant where I kind of became unhinged a little bit in response to Barkley, who I love kind of riding rough clay. I said, I would when clay said I'm betting on myself, I've yelled and screamed. I would bet on clay. Clay's awesome. Clay shooting 42% from three. Clay's not the problem. What do we know about Wiggins? Where is Wiggins? What's going on with Wiggins? Zach, again, another answer that I wish I had for you. And everyone within the team outside of the team is being really tight lipped on what is going on with Andrew Wiggins. I can tell you that it not him that he is physically okay. But they're just saying it's a family matter. There's still no timetable. We ask nearly every day if there's a timetable on when he'll be rejoining the team if he's around the team. Is he coming back to the team? And they're just, they just say, no. Okay, so I call that the most important question because we can get into all these stuff, these lineup issues and stuff and numbers that we're getting into, the run is not coming in the playoffs without Andrew Wiggins. He's that important a part of their team. I thought he started off this season, maybe after a couple of weeks looking really like the Andrew Wiggins who was in the playoffs last year and then started to kind of fritter away and then is gone now and I hope we just wish him well and hope that he and his family are okay, but as a team, they're not going to be the team without him. So in searching for explanations, I just have never encountered a team like this.

"Are they ever going to be able to shed that contract before it expires in two plus years? So here's the good news. Here's the good news. I think the thunder, every time you think the thunder are ready to not throw it in the towel, but like shade's been out here and there whatever. They keep winning. They're back to they've won two in a row now. It does feel like there should develop some sort of gap between 8 and then 9 and ten. Like 6, 7, 8 right now are Minnesota Dallas clippers. Golden State's 5. New Orleans is 9th. They've just been destroyed by injuries. We don't know when Zion's coming back. They traded a bunch of guys and have had injury issues themselves. Then it's the Lakers thunder blazers behind them. It feels like the floor for Dallas should be 8th. It feels like the floor for the clippers should be 8th despite the fact that they just lost four in a row or whatever. It feels like you mentioned Oklahoma City just won two in a row. Those are both over the jazz and I'm not sure. You gotta call them. They count. They count. How much of the spurs rockets double dipped did you watch over the weekend? Did you dive deep into that one? admit that I watched zero seconds. That's the proper, it's a proper answer. Rocket said a couple of good games. I did not watch either. I'm not watching. No, they didn't. They first had a couple of good games. Well, the rockets hung one 42 on them last night. Yeah. And my Friends, Jenelle, the wheels are turning. The wheels are turning. Oh, the floor, the floor should be 8. But okay. By the way, clippers Mavs is a play in. And then listen Zach, I know we're all mad right now, but I'm just telling you, street lights versus spotlights could be decided in the second play in winter go home, baby. Oh, the battle of LA, coming down to that second play in game, baby. Come on. Work is better than that. Oh man. Blacktop. After that, what was that? I thought it was a street light versus spotlight. That was one of them. I feel like there were a few of them. Okay. I feel like I'll tell you, that's OD, the omen date and Dave, YouTube hit show. But no, the Lakers have made major progress. He's back to being a Mac 11 C, it almost back to the original nickname of Mac ten seed. Oh my God, just the LA slander. I promoted their YouTube show, by the way, howdy partners this week, having Kendra Andrews on to discuss those Golden State Warriors. Yeah, it's not that we get it in the hoop collective plug while I'm here. LA basketball 34 and 33 clippers, 31 and 34 Lakers. What are we talking about the maps? You know, perk is always yelling at me about how nobody plays defense anymore. And all this, they don't let you play defense anymore because you can't touch anybody. And defense doesn't really matter. And I think teams like the kings and the Mavericks are gonna be the ultimate test cases of that because I will always believe that to win the NBA title you need to be able to defend and defend really well because it's not better how much they tilt the game to offense. There are going to be cold shooting nights and whatever and defense is going to sing at least somewhat loudly in the end. But you are not going to stop Dallas. Like they will have cold shooting nights to Reggie Bullock will go one for ten, Josh green will go over for 5 Klebold misses shots, Christian wood will either miss or he'll get pulled from the game because Jason Kidd doesn't trust his defense. If they have those two dudes on the floor and they have run a grand total of 11 pick and rolls together in 7 games. So they just scratching the diamonds scratching the surface they're looking for the surface of that. If you just have those dudes on the floor and one of them is handling the ball up top and the other guy's one passed away on the wing or kairi's pushing the pace and Lucas trailing, you are not stopping them. There was one four possession stretch yesterday at the game where you at where Terrence Ross got in the game in the third quarter or maybe early in the fourth quarter and four straight possessions twice Luca twice Kyrie like all right, where's Terence Ross? Where's tantra? Bring him, bring his guy to me and it's like and one post up step back three blow by layup post up again. The sun's choice was, hey, are we going to let them just extend invitations and make Joshua kogi and or Tori Craig, take wide open corner of threes in brick them, or we're going to have no hope to defend on the other end because those are the guys who have any hope of defending Luca and or Kyrie, but Zack, you know, to your point, these are the all 5 losses when Luke and Kyrie play together are games that were decided in the final seconds. And the maverick scored one 28 is OT but still one 28, one 21, one O 8, one 22, and one 26. Like it's obvious to me watching the two teams play each other that Phoenix is a significantly better two way team than Dallas. They're bigger, they're longer, they're tougher from Durant to 8 and Paul is still a pestle. He's lost a half a step at least. They're just a better defensive team. They're just better. But Booker is a better defender than Luca. Yeah, I think nobody would argue that. Yeah. But all that said, like they barely won because Dallas's offense is that good. Like, they're looking at an off game. Look at an off game and missed a bunny at the end or, you know, who knows? Maybe Katie or book would have hit a game winner with they had 3.5 seconds to work with. The sun certainly could have won an overtime. But if Luca, who didn't play well by his standards, they hit a very easy shot at the end, it's tied up with three and a half seconds left. Yeah, you and I both won the trade happened kind of I believe I don't want to put words in your mouth. I believe we both said we kind of don't buy the idea that the Mavs are now instant contenders like contender. I don't believe they are. I don't believe it. I don't believe they are either because I just think defensively they're going to be too challenged. And despite everything that perks says all the time and the evidence bearing it out and the fact that you're just not going to stop the steam, they're going, they're not going to run into a team that holds them to a 105 points three times in a row it's not going to happen. I just think to win three or four playoff series. Which is what they are signing up to try to do. Like don't let their record fool you, like they went all in on Kyrie. They have to be boxed into a corner of the summer to re sign him to win that many playoff series in a row against this level of competition. It is hard to do that when you've got a win like one 28, one 24 over and over and over and over again. The margins, even in an era that's tilting offense in a rules landscape that favors offense, I just still am skeptical that your defensive ceiling or defensive floor is so low or whatever the right term I guess whatever it is. It's too bad on defense. I just think it's still so hard to win that many playoff series that way that I just, but they're going to be in every game because of their offense. Well, yeah, they didn't have a chance before the trade at all. And I think their chance went from 0% to whatever. We call 1%, right? Because lucan Kyrie not only are either capable of taking over a playoff game, a playoff series at any time. But they're going to light it up. I think Luke and Kyrie can look and needed a costar to have a real chance to attend for a championship. But they don't have a championship caliber or even a contending caliber supporting cast around them because look, you look at the team that went to the west finals last year, you've lost, I'm going to say your

"I don't think they're an easy out. I'm not gonna sit here and tell you, I think they're a contender, I just like, look, if you think it's just gonna be, hey, you're playing against a cute little kings in the first round. You get a pass of the semifinals. But let's think it out for a second. What if it shakes out that they can hold onto three? Or move up to two, whatever it ends up being, they draw Minnesota in the first round or Dallas in the first round. A team that like everyone thinks I think Dallas has more upside than Sacramento because of Luca and the glucagon. But there's really not there two and 5. We're going to talk about them in a second. There are two and 5 together. There's nothing that really suggests that they should be like favorites over the kings, Minnesota, should not be favorites over the kings and we'll see when Kat comes back. That's a winnable series. Okay, let's say they win that series. Let's see, they get to draw breaks for them. They win. Then it's two, three against the grizzlies with no Brandon Clark and let's even assume jobs back later. Or you might be looking at one of those teams in a second round instead. Like, look, I'm not going to sit it into like the grizzlies are obviously we've just talked about a lot. There's more question marks around the grizzlies and team that's going to have a home court of engine. The first round. I'm just saying, I'm just saying by far. There is a semi reasonable world where we wake up in the kings around the Conference Finals. I wouldn't pick it, it's going to depend a lot about who their first round opponent is out of these teams because if it's clippers, warriors, whatever, I think they're in for an uphill battle, but if it breaks you know, they're good. Kings grizzlies would actually be a fascinating series and I don't know how much those two markets would DriveTV ratings, but it would be a fascinating series because you have obviously the best offensive team in the league against the best defensive team in the league and the biggest on court just basketball concern about the grizzlies to me is boy. If you make them play in the mud, they're like they're in some ways to the total opposite of the old grit and grind versus who wanted to play the bud. This team, if you make them play in the mud, they are a mediocre to pour half court offensive team. Now, if you let them run and gun and fly up and down the floor, jaws pretty good in the open floor. I mean, he is an absolute force, especially when you've got coming to shoot and Jackson runs the floor really well for big all those sort of things. The kings are one team where they're, I don't think the kings are trying to slow down a series either. So that would be a very interesting series. Yeah, the kings, we'll see how their wing rotation is Kevin herder, who's a fantastic shooter and probably a slight minus on defense Harrison Barnes, who's more of a four now. Keegan Marisa rookie, Malik monk, Terrence Davis, davion Mitchell, are all kind of undersized coming off the bench rep for wings anyway, depending on who else is on the floor. I just think you get to the playoffs, you need a one better wing than they've got, but you can't have it. Okay, let me ask you a question. Aside, who in the west doesn't need one better wing. No, it's a fair, it's a fair question. Everything. I just watched two teams yesterday. They traded good wings. And I understand why they did it, but boy. Joshua kogi was 8 from three yesterday for the kings. Torrey Craig was one of four. They got saved by ish Wainwright coming in and going four or 5. Right, but I'm saying there's some wing concern there. The Mavericks dude. I mean, obviously, they didn't want to give up during Smith. There's just no way they were going to get that deal done without doing it. And now a team that since that trade's dead last and defense, obviously need another wing stopper, another three and D guy. And again, I just think you go down the list to everybody needs another wing. The grizzlies are trying to throw a 114 picks to get them cow bridges or OG. Okay, so but there are wings in their wings. And wings can mean a lot of different things. One of the things I mean by it in this playoff context is do you have a ball handler who's like 6 6 or taller and the sun's got one, the mav still have one. The king's lead ball handler is a skinny point guard or a big center who doesn't predict the rim. That's all. But I think the kings are really good. So let's talk about your hometown maps for a few minutes here. Four and 6 since the trade two and 5 in the 7 games Luca and Kyrie have played together. Offensive rating breaks your laptop. Defensive rating also breaks your laptop with Luca and Kyrie on the floor. There are plus 7 per 100 possessions plus 35 total points under 86 minutes. They're winning the Kyrie alone minutes handily and getting absolutely shellacked in the Luca only minutes. I think that's largely just kind of random noise. All these stats are jacked up because it's a small sample size and they play the spurs. And also they've played in defense of their bad defensive rating. They have played amongst these ten games, Philly, the kings twice, Phoenix with Durant, the clippers and the nuggets. So they're playing just one scoring machine after another. They are only one game over 500 now and 7th in the west, the projection systems that I use have them as a 40 to 45% chance to make the top 6. So better than 50 50 by a hair to be in the play in, which is not where you wanna be, and you watch their defense, we knew you and I talked about it when they made the trade. They got worse defensively and they got smaller. And they are really, really small across the board now, and that's manifested itself in some pretty poor defense. You do look at the numbers though, and you wonder again, given their schedule, given that teams in this ten game stretch are shooting 52% on mid range shots, this per cleaning the glass, and 75% at the rim. Now that may be all lasting problem. The rim field goal percentage may just be bad. And the Mavs are 28th in free throws aloud. Are they a little bit better than this defensively? You just watch them and they're like, dude. Guarding LeBron and Durant and like on a nightly basis you're like, this is the best they got for these matches. Justin holiday fresh off a buyout was starting started a few games. Like Josh green has had a really good season, but he didn't score yesterday, and he's, you know, he's a really good athlete, 6 foot 6, good athlete, but he's not like, you know, you put him next to Kevin Durant. He looks really small. You know, you put him next to some of these dudes that you got to deal with. And you know, he's not a big wing by any stretch of the imagination. Look, Maxie klebe can't fix everything, but unless he's really good, like a deep playoff run is extremely unlikely. And it's concerning maxi came back from a right hamstring tear where he had surgery, and I guess the tenon was torn, not the muscle, like I'm no doctor just by 8 years in college, but that's how he was able to come back as quickly as he did. But he sat out the Phoenix game because he's experienced soreness after playing a couple of games playing I don't have the minutes right in front of me, but like low 20s in the minutes. He's questionable by the time people hear this, they'll know if he plays not probably, but he's questionable for Tuesday night. Against the jazz. That's super concerning. Because he is honestly, he's not just their best rim protector, he might be their best on ball defender. Reggie bullocks the other possibility there, but like they need maxi to be a force, and look, they signed JaVale McGee to be their big rebounder in protector. They promised him a starting job on a three year deal. He was so bad. They pulled the plug after 8 games and they're playing, they're playing yogurts. They're playing embiid. He's DM PCD, like that ship has sailed. The only question is, are they ever going to be able to shed that contract before it expires in two plus years? So here's

"That's far from a shirt, not even close to a shirt, but if that ends up being the case, that means a first round matchup between two teams who I believe could win the west, and a potential Denver, whoever wins that series matchup of two teams who I believe could win the title at that point in the second round. Standing in the way of that is a potential Phoenix rise up the standings. They're now only three games back of the kings. They are undefeated with Durant, I watched both their games two back of the king's three of the grizzlies. Yeah, three in the lost column I'm looking at the lost column only two of the kings three of the grizzlies overall standings. I watched both the Chicago game and the Dallas game over the weekend, a largely they looked exactly like I talked about with Eddie Johnson last week on the pod, go listen to that if you want to hear Phoenix analysis. So there's that, there is the Memphis Sacramento race for two, Memphis has the easiest schedule left in the conference on paper. However, some challenge in circumstances. In some challenging circumstances, the kings currently own the tiebreaker over Memphis, virtue of a vastly superior conference record. They are two two head to head. Beneath that is that tiebreaker would only hold if Sacramento actually wins their division in Phoenix is in the same division as Sacramento, so that could come into play Vis-à-vis Memphis. And the suns have the current tiebreaker two O over the king's head to head if they were to finish tied with two games left, so they have two games left to try to continue to make up ground. So there's a lot of there's a lot of room for maneuverability here and the king's man, look, we're going to talk about the Mavs in a second and how the Mavs are the scoring machine and defensively challenge defense that we anticipated they would be when they made this seismic trade for Kyrie. There's a team in the west that's like, hey, we've been doing that all year better than you guys are now. We have the number one offense in the entire NBA by a full point now. The kings are number one with a the kings are number one by a lot. There you go. Good way to put it. 25th on defense and there's still reason to think that some of their defense is just bad luck because they don't foul, they get every defense rebound. They force a decent amount of turnovers. They're allowing a lot of mid range shots. Teams are just making everything from everywhere against them now I think part of that is because they have no rim defense they're getting smoked at the rim just like they did last year. Some of it with the mid range jumpers in the threes, they might be a little bit better than 25th on defense. They are, they're not going away, man. They're one wing away from being truly, truly interesting to me as like a potential contender. Like I just think point guard center offensively they are massively skilled with Fox. They are unbelievable. Yeah, and look, I have personally acknowledged to both Monty mcnair and Wes Wilcox that my harsh criticism of what at the time I call the tyrese Halliburton trade was off. And Paris Halliburton is exactly who I thought he was, which is one of the rising stars in the NBA. But sabonis is really, really, really good. And I think they're going to be a tough out in the play. Everyone is just pinning them in as the loser, the three 6 series. I think they're going to be a tough out. I do think you're going to score a lot of points to beat them. A lot of points. And look, if they play the Mavericks, it's first to one 40, right? It might be already saw that game. That's the first game. Was against the kings. They lost on the road. If they play the clippers, it's first a one 75 apparently. We've seen that. No, I mean, look, they obviously are very limited in terms of playoff experience. Harrison Barnes just won a championship sabonis has some playoff experience, but we're talking about a franchise that's playoff drought is old enough to drive, right? I'll say this, though, they have been a cojones factored crunch time killer all season. You might have to rename that after deer and fox, man. That's how much of a colony's factor they've been. Well, you know, he's definitely the FrontRunner for that. I don't know what exactly goes into the leagues, ripoff version called the Jerry West award, but he's definitely the FrontRunner. He's definitely in front of her. Who's a bigger deal. Me or the logo. Come on. Hey, man. I redesigned that trophy so that it's like a nondescript player doing the cassell dance. That's what they should do. They're gonna honor you. That's what they should do. But look, Fox has been on real in the fourth quarter in clutch time, all season long, just getting to the rack, the mid range game, him, and it's a bonus, just playing off of each other, you know, I mean, Malik monk, especially when Russell Westbrook forgets that he's guarding him and looks like a puppy dog chasing the ball with the game on the line, Malik monks capable of hitting big shots.

"A bunch of things together in the Western Conference. The grizzlies being in a little bit. I'm almost tempted to be like, are we writing off this season for the grizzlies? 'cause it feel close there. We'll see, we'll just have to see where my aunt comes back, but they are now only a game ahead of the kings for the number two spot. The sons who you just saw in person yesterday and boy oh boy. Give me another Luca Booker series. And I loved what books did you read as a subplot? Well, yeah, seriously, Katie, Kyrie. Katie warriors is almost a more interesting potential subplot in the postseason to me than KD Kyrie and we'll talk about that with Kendra later. Luca Booker is fucking awesome. And excuse my French, but I loved that was English. I don't know why we say it like that. It was English. And I loved what book said after the game when he was like, you know, you guys are sitting here asking me about trash talking and going nose to forehead to forehead have you ever have you ever gone forehead to forehead with another with another, in a argument with another person? Have you ever gone forehead beforehand? I will say not since Luke has been alive, at least. It seems an odd way to, it seems an odd way to argue. But I love when he was like, you guys are and they both start smirking because like, look, no one's throwing punches. They're not going to get my brain is now broken where one of the first three thoughts that comes into my head during anything like that is if one of you has COVID, the other one's going to get it. Can you separate from each other a little bit? That's very, very close. The spittle is flying back and forth. But I love when book was like, you guys always say back in the day. So and so I hated so and so and everyone's buddy buddy and AU. Well, like we got some real smoke here. Don't you guys, this is what you want to see. And he's absolutely right. And look, sun's fans right now are mad at me. I think they are. I think Booker might be a little annoyed because I said when it first happened and I saw Luke a very clearly, say, shut the I'm not going to make a producer work as hard as you do. Shut the bleep up. And so I tweet that and I say, Booker taught at Luke after Luca missed what would have been the game time layup. And then I said, well, you know, I saw a replay I said, Booker might have been talking to the referee, which is an indirect time. People are indirect content. They're all mad at me. I'm like, dude, look. Luca blew a bunny that would have tied the game because he missed it. The game is over with three seconds left. Saying that's a charge. That's a charge. That's a charge. Basically you're saying Luca, you're talking the record. You're saying it's a Luca hears you. Dude, you charge and still blew away up and we just want on your home floor. It's basically what you're saying. And if you think that's an inaccurate interpretation, trust me on this. That's exactly the way the Luc interpreted what the book was saying. Very clearly. And I've got no problem with Booker doing that, right? Especially, you know, there is history there. There is beef, bad blood. You know, the whole Luca walking off the floor after game 5, the sun's up three, two. Everybody acting tough when they up, and then game 7, the little, you know, looking up at book or just smirking, hey. That's that photo of the smirk is the iconic. Is the trash talking version of the way LeBron aliyah, like arms out, are you not entertained photo? That's how good that photo is. A smirking version of AI's step over Tyler. Oh, I like that. I like that. I guess that does have a great still photo of it. Actually, the one where we're seeing Iverson is if he's coming right at us, that angle from the opposing from the other side. But you know, so Luca was look, and hey, you know, Luca it was funny. Every time there's something local in basically he started, whether he's arguing with a fan, whether he's arguing with a pistons assistant coach. By the way, with another player. Speaking of that, do you remember when you and I both called Luca the biggest whiner in the league about referees to referees and what happened as a consequence of that? And since then, you took all the shrapnel on that one. Old Cuban Cuban blast away at you. For being a big name, I'm just a role player, baby. Even Dave passion on the play by play yesterday is just making jokes about like Lucas always complaining about something, like I'm sorry to be the bearer of truth. The guy never stops complaining to the refs. If you don't believe us, ask Jason Kidd after they blow a 27 lead and he wants to, you know, and so look spicy. And again, I don't have a problem at all. I encourage it at no problem with Booker talking trash. I don't care if it was till three seconds, Luca does, I don't. With Luka talk and trash, I don't have any beef with that. Now, I do think Lucas constant whining to rest. I think that is oftentimes counterproductive, not just in his ability to get calls, but Jay Kidd has said it very clear. There's times where Luke is not playing defense, whether he's not running back on defense, or there'll be times. He's arguing in the middle of a possession. It's like, oh, well hey, Lucca, you're catch your head turned argue in the ref and guess what? Your guy just back cut for a layup because you're not even thinking about defense. So that stuff I got, I've got an issue with, but the beef, the bad blood, the trash talking. You know, I would say that no stuff, the only problem I have with that is Luca. Dude, you just got your 14th technical foul of the season, not plus one resentment, but as far as the suspension count goes, you're two away. Not smart. That's not smart. Well, look, Devin Booker's made the finals and has been up in the finals. Lucas never made the finals, but man, that playoff loss last year is so bad for Phoenix and I know that there are all sort of countervailing circumstances and stuff. Luca has that over Booker's head for a long long and I think it requires scored them in the first half of the game 7 on the road. Luca outscored the Phoenix Suns. I think that requires head to head postseason vengeance for Devin Booker to absolute tab to get back on equal footing. And let's say we don't well, yeah, if you win the title, you'd never have to, you know, whatever, but you don't get revenge from a, you're the top seed that goes up two O and then you fall apart and the rest of the series in a historic blowout on your home floor and game 7. So I'm gonna talk about with Kendra. We're not there yet, but there's a potentiality, which is not maybe not a word. I don't know, a potentiality. I think that is a word where the nuggets are gonna be number one. We know that. And four, 5 is Phoenix now super Phoenix with Durant and Golden State at 5.

And then Being detector secondary Which is which is going to be Obviously they they play a lot of zone being to see that and then be able to to fit in those zones is what we're looking for and then you know you'll have to have your head on a swivel there.

"About this series of what we wanted to do with it and a couple of days after that we had we had a three book deal to write the series so we were we were definitely hoping and praying that we would get to do. This series was not even remotely on our radar to do it When when this deal all came together so that was kind of fun and exciting and then of course the ink dries in your like now. We have to write these. Write these books. Somehow we should probably a take a really close look at the calendar no more no more vacations for ever. So there's the themes in this book About the struggling with faith so does was that an issue that that you guys were were pulled to tackle. What were you feelings about that. Because i found. I found that very touching. Yeah i think early on. That was a big that was a big theme for us. It was probably the first thing that we really sort of latched onto. And those are the people that know me well. No that i lead a men's military ministry. Brian and i are both military veterans. And i lead a ministry at a very large church in tampa for men's group that focuses on just those issues our like. I think it's it's really hard to find somebody. That's been in combat that is seen some of the horrors of warfare and at times seemed just things just the pure evil of what man can do to his fellow man and not struggle with questions of faith in god deity. And you know these questions of. Why would god let this happen. How could there be a loving got an allow this these horrors to happen and so it's something that we see very commonly in military veterans struggling to to answer those questions for themselves and so that was definitely a theme we wanted. We didn't wanna preachy book that we don't want a book like you feel like you're getting a message. We wanted to do an andrews in wilson action novel but we wanted to pull that theme. That was really important in our lives into the book. So that at the end you can enjoy the ride and had the entertainment. But maybe you've got something that you can think about. You know how people that have suffered not just in the military but suffered real loss or suffered real trauma how can rectify that with what they believe about god and the universe so yeah that was definitely a a major theme for us very early on and so when readers turns the last page of this book How do you hope they will feel any new ideas or lessons that you hope to carry with them main. We hope that they carry with them is that don't be afraid to question yourself. Question your faith. Think about reach out to people get a dialogue going. There's too many people that sort of i think it. i don't want to sound trite. The the suffering silence but it's true. People too often tried to they feel like maybe if they internalize all these things they can sort it out themselves. Maybe they just feel uncomfortable talking about the topic. Maybe they don't know who to reach out to. And i think jesmyn men's ministry is a perfect example of. Hey you know. Jeff saw a need that this is something that a lot of servicemen women.

What else have i been wrong about. And what are my values. Now that i'm not standing on the bible or waving the bible around. And i had to go back point-by-point and more and more i realized that the humanistic approach to these were totally in contrast to what i previously believed and so point-by-point ended up walking away. Actually wrote something about this on facebook which i took a lot of heat for if i can answer your question off the air. I'll just read the piece to you. It's like i don't know ten minutes long five ten minutes long and maybe that will help clarify but that'd be alright jonas. of course of course wonderful. Well i appreciate your call. I appreciate your listening and sweden. Okay thank you very much everything and for making me sleep. Well you're most welcome. You put me to sleep. i like it. I think it's a beautiful compliment. I wrote this. I said i get a bit irritated at the question which i heard again recently. What's the deal with the idea that atheism equals liberalism cleared up one more time. Atheism doesn't equal liberalism. Atheism is no guarantee of rationalism or reason or logic or skepticism or basic human decency. Atheism is simply the non belief in god's however for a great many of us the realization that there are no gods managing our problems. There's no master plan. There's no manna from heaven. No cosmic justice and no divine intervention. Means that we have refocused ourselves realizing that humid's are going to have to solve our own problems. Equality education opportunity charity. The alleviation of suffering justice kindness inclusion love and acceptance beyond tribal walls. This is humanism. And i'm sorry. But as much as hardline conservatives don't wanna hear this humanism leans heavily on liberal values. It's sure as shit. Better universe than the christian nationalist. Gop the republican party. The right wingers. They're spinning theocratic privilege. They sowed the distrust of science and scientists. They blame the world sins for the suffering on this planet. they're pissing on the constitutional state church. Line up discrimination. Lgbt discrimination racial discrimination. Whatever discrimination they prop up on the bible they form foreign policy based on apocalyptic narratives like israel and they operate in this constant state of frothing outrage over the mere notion of having to share the table with the rest of us so beyond bat look at it objectively between the conservative and the liberal which philosophy which philosophy is more inclined to give rights to minorities to acknowledge racial discrimination and teach legitimate history to prevent future bigotry education. It's not the twenty first century american conservative party. Sorry science over superstition and it's gonna lane way liberal to legalize recreational drugs in the wake of this always losing drug war who is protecting female reproductive choice who is embracing death with dignity. Issues and bodily autonomy who's fostering inclusivity of people with other faiths other colors other nationalities who opposes institutional executions the death penalty which is hugely problematically applied. In many of us. Feel like it's a human rights violation. It's barbaric who wants healthcare for. Everybody thinks it's the responsibility of societies to take care of each other. Who more likely rejects all this hawkish war rhetoric by these pounding general types who wants to remove religious language from the courts and the congress and get it off the money and all these representative institutions. That were never designed to be churches. It's not the fucking republican party. It's leaning heavily liberal or progressive people. Already you're typing their hate mail at me about all the problems with the the liberals and the progressives in the democratic party. And you're right. There are massive their major problems there are fringe elements there. People who are totally wrong headed no tribe or group or cause or institution is flaw free but it's not equal right the the false equivalents argument for me just makes me crazy while they're all equally bad. You gotta be shitting me. The values that. I'm interested in as a humanist are absolutely not not the values of twenty-first-century american conservatism. They're just not most of the time recently. It's just this zealous myopic. Insular tribal screw them. I've got mind members only club. There are in fact. And i will be the first to admit there are many wonderful people who do have are beside their name on the voting cart..

"It's to me. It still feels like atlanta's playing with house money. There is not pressure on this team in it looks. I mean they're out there. Talking clue capellas talking in the new york series. Then he goes out and backs it up. Yes raise having a blast and and this is a team that's playing loose and it's shows and listen. There's a lot of pressure on the sixers in this game. Three in atlanta. Certainly if you're billy you gotta get home court advantage back and and get this one. Well it brings me back to. I remember in the bubble last season I hate to bring it up again. Clippers fans but that three one lead with the denver nuggets that just nicole yokich. I remember him saying before the last game that series. There's no pressure on us. We're playing with house money. There's no pressure on us. That's that's the hawks now. The hawks are playing anything they do. Now is a just a delightful at addition to what they've already done and sometimes that's when the you know the the scary things come out. That's when the surprises happened. And for the hawks. I mean they're they have everything to gain and nothing to lose here and that can be a scary proposition when you're going up against the team a team that has expectations and philadelphia has expectations. They do you know it's funny. I'll i'll be interested to see the environment in atlanta for game three. I remember covering ninety nine and a you're probably in kindergarten or something but not one thousand nine. The not even the us. The knicks knicks hawks. Second round series the knicks had beaten miami in that best best-of-five five as the a seed it was in the lockout year and then they go to atlanta and was a steve smith to kim bay atlanta team and they just blew them out in that series but i just remember the arena not sold out and so many knick fans that i remember how much noise there was in the building for the knicks in that series and that people barely knew that the hawks were in the second round. I was very different now. They've got a new arena They've got some star power in trae trae young and i think there is a different feeling there but i i don't know i've always felt like washington atlanta being consistently. Go to the washington wizards those potentially the they should be destination markets in that. If you're good and you got it rolling Those are cities players like and want to live in and live a lotta guys. Limited atlanta in the off. Season and dc is an incredible basketball town with a team. That's got great tradition and i. It feels i've always felt like if atlanta could just if they can keep this group together in win and be good that how they're viewed which is you know. Smaller market not a place. Where like the free agents. They got this year You know bogdonovich sign and trae restrict signing trade They had cap space and they were able to go out and get that second tier free agent. Donovan has been awesome But but i think there's a lot that can be built toward in atlanta. And i think they've got a great infrastructure and in this series and is run could go a long way and i think Establishing that cemented that for that franchise not to mention they could have all of their children and beauty pageants here at my hotel. So that's you know like there's this certain there's a certain pluses and free agency and you know that Supersede everything else. That's that's clearly one of them. I know i know you'll be You'll be hanging around the lobby People watching that the rest of the day before Your game Your game three. You're there with espn crew will tonight on countdown malaika. And i'll see you somewhere in the world here soon. I'm sure i'm sure thanks for having me watch. Thanks.

Facebook groups help unlock the collective power people to do more together than alone because when other share your passion they take it to new places. Whatever you're into a community and facebook groups of like minded people passionate about your interests and things you love so whether you la basketball because of the handles on court supporting your local team the in the fits you can find a community on facebook. Groups find your group at facebook dot com slash groups. That's facebook dot com slash groups. Take on anything with facebook groups. We mentioned nate mcmillan and atlanta. You you flew from milwaukee to atlanta. You've got that game three on. Espn tonight. Against philli and really. The hawks are just a remarkable story this year on paper all year. You looked and you said travis length that a really really good job of putting this roster together but we never saw the team altogether. There were so many injuries during the season and bogdonovich went down. Gallinari was down. The andre hunter now is out for the season and all of a sudden you saw the playoffs. You know cam. Reddish who another young developing player has been out for most of the year now but the bogged the impact. Bogdonovich is made on this. Then you know people forgot. They traded for clink capella. At last year's trade line. He amen was injured so you didn't really see him till this year. He's been remarkable and and obviously the continued growth of john collins. Would you look at how you build a roster and travis lincoln's at all three phases of it which is draft free agency and trades. And he's really made impactful moves and all those places and now all of a sudden you know they roll through new york they go win and Steal a game one in philly. Now come home to a a city. That's getting pretty excited about this team. Trae young is becoming a star in the nba. Certainly that new york series elevated him. Once you start doing it in the postseason that people really take notice and so And then nate mcmillan the impact. He's had on. This team has been Tremendous and people forget. Nate mcmillan was on a i. Think a nine game. Playoff losing streak from indiana going back a couple years and i mean to me you could look at that streak and go. I thought he overachieved in the regular season and had injuries and maybe was overmatched where they got seated the playoffs when he looked at it player for player but No one's talking about that now. He he did a great job in the series against new york against the tampa. Who was obviously the the coach of the year and now phillies in this. Is a battle phillies. Going to philly would be very fortunate to get out of this series alive and right now to me atlanta. Looks like an looks absolutely like a team that that could find itself in the conference finals. And i don't know that anybody would have imagined that even a month month and a half ago. No absolutely not. If i told you that i was you should call me a liar because you correct i. In the the temperature of the city. Nate mcmillan was telling me earlier that he used to be able to walk around his building that he lives in and he could walk in his elevator. He could walk around the building and no one knew who he was and now even with his mask on. He says he can't walk through the lobby without someone saying. Hey good luck tonight or hey. How's deondraye doing or hey. That was a pretty. That was a pretty crazy shot from trae. John collins told a story this week. He was drafted in two thousand. Seventeen by the hawks so for four years. He's been going to the same gas stations gas station. That's around the corner from the hawks practice facility and so a couple times a week he comes in. It's been the same gas attendant he said for the last four years and he goes he gets his. His snacks fills up his car and he leaves and the last four years. It's been it and he said that all of a sudden after they beat the knicks all of a sudden. The gas attendance know who he is. He said no one could have cared. Less who i was before that and now that we beat the knicks. It's oh hey. Was the hawks this that. At l. is showing up for this team now and they're getting excited for this team now and johnson might have to hook them up with the jersey and blah blah blah. But these is used to be able to kind of walk around the city in the hawks. Were sort of this for the last couple of years have been this sort of middling team that was fine. That was nice and now it feels as though because of what you mentioned. Growth the building. That travis slang has put together. the coaching. that nate mcmillan has brought to this roster The evolution of trae young these moments from john collins all of a sudden atlanta's been put on notice. Oh this is one of our teams to. We're going to rep for them and they feel it and so this has been i. Think the most remarkable story of the regular season may very well have been the new york knicks. The most remarkable story of the postseason certainly seems to be from a team perspective. The hawks are just they're defying odds defying gravity. It's it's been a treat to watch and now all of a sudden the pressure on this philly team there. There was a honeymoon. This season. For daryl morey coming in his president doc rivers is coach. They were exalted. All season the moves docks. Or the darrell made in the off season. Some of the things they did with the roster and then Getting that number one seed which allowed philly to be able to avoid brooklyn until conference final and then all running right through washington which we would have expected even without joel at the back end of that series and all of a sudden they lose game one to atlanta. And i mean that's philly now. All of a sudden. The sky is falling and the pressure. I think on their stars embiid has been dominant certainly wanting to A ben simmons a sort of back there. That does this partnership work. Is this the best way to go forward. We know earlier. In the year of the james harden discussions. And whether ben simmons would be in a package for harden. Whether philly would do that. and now we're back to some of the same questions which are gonna linger with philly. If if they don't get out of the series and.

"You know may go. Sometimes you go opposite of what you did last time. Indiana after the disaster of nate worker. In this year you know they may look more toward i and i think they are toward a veteran head. Coach terry stotts is going to be a candidate. There is one steve. Clifford have a roster in indiana would veterans that when healthy is a is a mid. I think it is a mid tier playoff team in the east and and so You know we'll see i. I don't know that they'll be more openings in the cycle but you never know teams get eliminated and funny things can happen. Sometimes or teams who get distance from the season who he thought had coaches in the clear all of a sudden after it was a little bit like orlando steve clifford and The front office there after talking and talking and talking just the feel was going into a rebuild. They didn't fit each other anymore on what they wanted to do. And so We'll see if that happens anywhere else. But but but that is a listen boss. It'll be interesting brad. Stevens doing their search for his replacement and You know will. Would they go with assisted. This is still a. You still got two all stars under twenty five years old in boston. It makes it appealing job and one name. We left out. Maybe the most prominent of assistant coaching candidates. And that's chauncey billips song with the clippers who is it Among the very serious candidates in portland boston Same there obviously started his playing career in boston. I think chauncey might have been a candidate. He has been a candidate in the past before he got into coaching. He actually originally was focused on going to the front office and he came pretty close in cleveland and ultimately decided to turn that job down as gm and then decided that he wanted to get on the coaching track. And the chance to go to the clippers as an assistant coach has been i really beneficial for his development. I think being an assistant like listen. There are cases of coaches. Who became head coaches without any time assistant. And even those guys will tell you they look looking back. It would behoove them. Doc rivers will tell you looking back. There certainly would've been things that would help him. He was an nba coach of the year in his rookie. Year but i think for chauncey it's been really good to get that experience on. What's a very good clip staff. You have a couple of former head coaches on that staff and obviously tied lou. Who's been an elite coach in the league. So i think Chauncey you're gonna see continued here cianci's name in this coaching cycle. Yeah absolutely. I mean chauncey is a name that has come up. I have loved watching cianci's development growth changes i mean. I've i've enjoyed john chauncey i mean back to when i was an intern at the denver. Post has always been someone who has been a such a great almost like a a catalogue of the league right and so looking to see what he's been able to do now he's been able to learn what the staff has been able to pick up. I expect to see. He's another one. That i just it would. It would be surprising to me to see us go through. Maybe not just this year but another couple of cycles and not see him land. In one of those jobs. I expect to hear mike d'antoni who obviously is an assistant with brooklyn expect to hear his name bouncing around perhaps interviewing in some places But it's interesting to see right. You mentioned these these head coaches on these. These benches right. Now that are than shaping also some of these other future coaches that we could see like a chauncey billups Charles so. I think that this is going to be really interesting season in terms of who ends up with these coaching jobs. Especially because a lot of the guys that we just mentioned there a little bit more there on the the the younger side more relatable to some of these players side the player forward side. So it's going to be interesting to see the way that that sort of continues to progress here. I think more than ever. I mean this has always been the case but it is a leadership position in the nba. And you have to be to command the room. And i think it's harder than ever to do it in the league and that's always been the intrigued with chauncey. Billups was that he is just a natural leader and he was that as a player and But listen you've got to be that works and that helps when you walk in the door and it gives you credibility when you walk in the door but if the players see that you can help them that you're working is that you can make them better. It doesn't matter who you are right like it will s so when you have someone of stature and that has met with the preparation and and having a great staff and all the things that any head coach needs coming in then you've really got something I think the belief is that chauncey again with with only one year behind him. An assistant or this one season would have the ability to bring all those things. So that'll be. That'll be interesting. I think you'll hear his name some more with portland with boston Indiana he interviewed last year with the pacers before he had coached. Then get that job. But but i think again back in the cycle now. The worst pot is brought to you in part by progressive progressive. Helps you get a.

"Pod or the espn's nba reporter maliki andrews. How are you. I am just living the dream in georgia. How are you. i'm great. i understand. There's some commotion at your hotel in atlanta. Tell me what's going on at that hotel. So i grew up in california so this is just completely foreign to me. I walk into the hotel and there's a beauty pageant here and it's a beauty pageant for like eight to eleven year old and i have never seen eleven-year-old children walking around with their their spray tans done. They're wearing more makeup than i wear. When i go on television and i just. I sat in the lobby. I was doing a coach's call this morning. Our game broadcast and i sat in the lobby and my eyes are darting back and forth as i'm watching these mothers like holding up their daughter's hair as they're walking back to their hotel rooms that have their faces plastered on the door. So it's a party down here in atlanta was guess the pandemic's over down here it is. Evidently they're like ten reality shows about those kind of pageants author a bunch of tv shows about like psycho parents in those things. And i'm sorry this when this looks primed for to be the eleventh one of these television shows because the the the the culture of the whole thing is just it's again it is so foreign to me. I never crossed my mind to be a you know a a little baby beauty pageant but beauty pageant queen beauty pageant ter- beauty pageant participants mo. Figure it out. I'm gonna do some more recon. But by the time i leave. You're going to be doing the hair so it's going to be good well. I'm glad you're you're opening your vistas to new to new ideas out there. That's the whole idea of traveling. And and the world But speaking of travel malaysia. You came from milwaukee last night. Where the bucks i mean. They had to make a stand to save their season Probably spare mike boot and hawsers job for now And it felt like in talking to some people in milwaukee and we were watching in studio with with with countdown. And you were there that that place was it like there was an incredible energy. A nervous energy certainly going into the night but The buck somehow survived. And they live. They live to fight another day right well when they were up. Thirty to nine on that jaanus layup with ninety seconds to go in the first right. The place was talking. I mean i think that a lot of folks perhaps don't think of milwaukee as a rabid sports town where people especially for basketball where they just pack and pump into the milwaukee bucks fans show up and they show up numbers. This was the biggest crowd. They've had all season long. it was just. It was bump in there and it was loud and so it was an interesting game right because early on milwaukee just came out and they punched they punched hard and so they had this enormous twenty one point lead early on and then that nervous energy that you mentioned it. Slowly startled to trickle back up as the net slowly started to do what they do and came all the way back to tie the game and so then every time kevin durant had the ball it was like the entire breadth of the crowd would rise and fall with every single shot that he took and then after that back and forth with. Pj tucker every time. Kevin durant touch the ball he would get booed with a. I mean just ferociously booed and then there were the f. k. d. chance that just came raining down on the floor so it was. It was an interesting environment. You could tell that as excited as the crowd was. They were nervous because they know what that game meant for them. Their season for this franchise maliki. Did we see a little bit of the blueprint or a formula. And milwaukee has the play brooklyn and i think drew holiday set it in the piece. You did the the idea. We've got to muck this up right and and you saw them. You know without you know jaanus continuing to struggle from three three point line but also from the free throw line drew holiday not having the kind of performance you thought they might need to win the game but There's room certainly for those guys to play better in a game. Four and rest of the series but To keep that game well under a hundred points to keep the nets You know defensively to be able to take some things away. That's miss a lot of open shots. Joe harris miss some looks they had some looks there but but there was something of a of a blueprint to hang in there and this is coming off a game when they were down you know they trail by fifty almost fifty points in game two right. Well it's interesting. You say that word because it. It certainly could be right. This is one of the game game. One had some interesting competitive moments gave to was a blowout eight three. The beginning looked as if it was going to be a blow out but all of their points were coming from on the bucks points. Were coming from. Just khris middleton and john s and so knowing whether or not that can be sustainable. It wasn't other guys had to chip in a little bit but johnson. Chris were really their leaders there. But after the game i asked janice about whether or not you know kyrie irving said this is sort of an old fashioned type of playoff series of old fashioned type of playoff game and i asked whether or not he liked that whether or not he enjoys that he's in you know it's always enjoyable when you win but no he likes to play with moore paced with more shooting. Well guess who also likes to do that. The brooklyn nets so perhaps there in this little bit of a push and pull of what they liked to do versus what might be tactically appropriate. If they want to even up the series in game four. I mean what was interesting. Was you know we saw late. In the regular season. When brooklyn played those two back to back games in milwaukee and milwaukee wanna both also without james harden and you know there was a thought. Well maybe that gives them some confidence going in. But even when he talked to people in milwaukee like they knew what. We're gonna see hard in the playoffs and it's not the same but now it is the same team and we you know we don't know yet if we're going to harden in this series but it still feels like as long as the nets have two of their big three whichever two of the three it is especially as long as k is one of them right. You're probably still the best team They're they're going to have the best team on the court and there is optimism that they are going to get harden back and they will have all three right and that they're going to get jeff greenback. Perhaps you know. Jeff himself floated as soon as game four. Now i watch jeff warm up a little bit. He was doing a lot of dribbling exercises. He wasn't doing so much at the cutting that's what he said still missing for him. So that sort of remains to be seen but he expects to come back soon. The thing is i mean. Milwaukee did exactly what they needed to do. They needed to be the more aggressive team they needed to want it more. But like you said. I mean the nets missed a lot of shots. And i don't mean that as a cop out for milwaukee..

What is definitely not a gwen tarantino. Movie right it's like a different. It's like he took that weird skip. That clinton wrote and then re explained it in a more traditional way and you know reshuffled some of the weird things in the script and made it a good movie but the strength of tinos were is that. He maintains the weirdness in his scripts and then he manifests it in front of your eyes as as a director. So you know. It's like different process than david fincher. Who just has one hundred takes of scrip that three other people wrote and she's got to editors working simultaneously and he's trying to get the most pristine he can ever think to make any of winter tino just like leonardo dicaprio's shooting some flames swimming pool like it's a different different.
