"W ABC presents one on one with me, Apple or a droid. You know, I used to be android until about two months ago, and I got an apple. I regret it. I want my head right back for the apples. Cool, But I can't stand. Try the type stuff because it auto correct. You know, he thinks that being smart of me the say, Hey, stupid. That's not how you type it. That's the way I wanted a type it or write one. On one talk radio 77 w A, B C and a 77, ABC AP. I'm John Baxter, This is John Baxter Show. I welcome Fatties McCotter. American greatness. Andrew McCarthy. National Review Online. We are here to comment on raw information about Hunter Biden. These ARD the's are Fax established in a voice call. We do not know how it was recorded. We do not know why we have it except that we do, and there's a transcript attending this. This is from a website the national pulse. It is largely incoherent, but it does connect with certain events in the United States that can be secured one of them. Is a trial or pending trial of a man named Devin Archer. Another is the the conviction and incarceration of a man named Patrick Ho, who has now been released and has been deported to Hong Kong. All of these events turned around these last years. There's reference to a man named You who is the former head of CFC, the oil company that's mentioned in the revelations. We have so far of the Hunter Biden laptop. These are little pieces of a puzzle that has a much larger meaning. I do not know it. So I'm going to ask where the process question for Andy, Andy Hunter Biden, according to the transcript of this phone call that we've all listened to Is referring to phone calls being made from the Southern district of New York's U. S attorney's office, too. Hunter, Biden and possibly to his father. It doesn't name Joe Biden, but it talks about is he talks about my father? Turning on a case, eh? A criminal case against Devon Archer. The puzzle for me is why does the U. S Southern District of New York need to make these phone calls as if Devin Archer is going on trial? Why is Hunter Biden so upset by these phone calls? Good evening to you. Good evening, John. And to enter Patty Issa's well, you know, I think that this is probably not a phone called John from Hunter Biden. So much is kind of a dictated. At least the sense I get is that it's ah dictated kind of statement in the nature of a diary or or something. But I think that the reason he says he is receiving calls from the U. S attorney in the Southern District of New York because Devon Who is Devon Archer has named him that is Hunter and Joe as potential witnesses in a criminal case, And I think what they're what that is a reference to is to of Hunter Biden, his business partner's not only Devon Archer, but another guy named Bevin Cooney, who we've talked about a bit were convicted in the Southern District of New York in 2018 in a $60 million fraud scheme. In which the Biden family name featured prominently in the evidence. But Hunter and no one else who was named Biden was charged in the case. Hunter. You know, the Archer was known to trade on the Biden name as well. And that appears to have been a big part of the fraud and whether Hunter was in on it or not, is something that was not explored. Evidently at the trial, But I think the reason that this probably came up is there's a practice in the Southern District of New York, where I was a prosecutor for a long time that the judge makes the parties in a criminal case. Exchange witness lists before the trial and the witness list is basically anyone that your side thinks that you might call as a witness the reason for the exchanging the information so that it's not delays in the trial. So that the each party Khun do you know investigation If a witness they don't have notice of is is called so to move things along. The judge makes the parties tell each other who the witnesses were going to be so they could do their investigation ahead of the witness is being called to the stand and very often because these lists tend to be over inclusive. And because they're not filed publicly. It's often the case that witnesses don't know that they've been listed unless the other side calls them to try to interview them. So I imagine what may have happened is the Southern District of New York prosecutors may have reached out to Hunter to try to interview him to see what he would say if he were called as a witness by Devin Archer. But in my research on this, it doesn't appear that Hunter actually was called as a witness in the trial I read from the Southern District of New York document about this trial. Three convicted in Manhattan Federal Court for the fraudulent issuance and sale of more than $60 million of tribal bonds. This's Dateline June 18 2018 and the explanation the attorney for the United States. Went on to say, as a unanimous jury swiftly found, these defendants orchestrated a highly complex scheme to defraud a native American community and multiple pension funds, all to corruptly bankroll their own personal and business interests. So that is the crime. They're convicted. They're jailed for it. That is So Andy, But obviously 100, Biden was being called as a witness. So what's all the hubbub about? Well, he certainly figured prominently in the trial that by name figured prominently in the trial, and it looks to me fatty. It's like it's part of the pattern that we've seen. And but that politico report that we talked about one of the last times we discussed this topic. Indicated that the Biden family and people around Hunter and Jim Biden, who was Joe's one of Joe's brothers, They've been trading on Biden's political influences go going back to when he was initially elected to the Senate all those years ago. So you know this is something I don't think anybody finds if we are to find it a little bit shocking, given how little reporting there is upon it. It's a pattern that I think we've seen a number of times at this point in the transcript of the remarks by by Hunter Biden, and, as Andy says, I don't know it might just be. He's making a record of these events or he might be talking to somebody on the phone. I can't tell There's another name mentioned. This is Patrick Ho, who was convicted of crimes in the United States and incarcerated was released in June of this year and deported to Hong Kong. The characterization that Hunter Biden offers in this transcript. If it is his voice is that Patrick Cho is the spy chief of China who started a company that my partner who is worth 322 $3 billion founded and is now missing. What I followed from that is that he's naming Patrick Oh, as a spy chief. And he's also referring to Ye Jin Lang, who was Thehunt, head of C E F. C. The company mentioned interested in networking with the vice president and has been much mentioned by such as Mr Bo Belinsky and in the transcripts we have from the Hunter Biden laptop. This can get all confusing, and it's just that within one short paragraph Mr 100. Biden is referring to tomb to two men who are both convicts of crimes in the United States of America. It's a peculiar friendships. He's maintaining It sure is. I think that Patrick Ho is a very interesting character. He and Jin Ming who you who you just mentioned. Are the founders of this huge Chinese energy concern that's known as C E. F. C, and it appears to have been built John on bribery. Home was a government official in the government of Hong Kong in the early 2000, and then he got himself established. With an NGO that was certified by the United Nations but underwritten by CFC, and that gave him a lot of access to Ah big government officials in Africa who he proceeded to bribe on behalf of CFC in order to improve CFCs..

"A lot of us could not afford could not get PPP or the idol. And so we didn't have like the loans and things to fall back on to keep US three with his cash flow. I'm I'm I guess you could say lucky that I'm a small business black female bookstore. And so when things happened with George employed people started looking to black book stores to buy things from, although they should have been doing that before. And now I'm seeing that What has happened with that is our expectations for delivery from a small place, as opposed to what we've been able to get online has people's perceptions of what you can get and how house has changed. And I think that hurt a lot of stores, especially independent bookstores, who did not have one. An Internet presence at all to buy books through who had to scramble to do that, and now having to change the way you market haven't a chance the way you buy books to kind of survive through this holiday pandemic Season two. That's all been Just really stressful and hard to do, because you'll have the cash flow. But I don't know how much longer we can actually stay viable being open. The brick and mortar. Okay, Kathy, What's the name? Your store? It's called Brain Layer books, an anagram of librarian. Okay, That's the that's the best thing. I've heard all day candy from brain layer Brooks and South Bend, Indiana. Good luck, Cathy. We're all pulling for you, Scott from Twitter says. I've given up filling Jeff bases his pockets. I choose book culture near Columbia during locked down as well as kitchen arts and letters and Bonnie Slotnick cookbooks. The latter two are already on my radio as a food scholar. My guess is Alexander Altar from the New York Times she covers publishing and the literary world. We heard they CEO of the American Booksellers Association mentioned indeed about bookshop. That organ launched the beginning of this year, so it was a pro bookstore alternative. The Amazon. How helpful has it been Andy Hundreds on the show, by the way, Full disclosure. How helpful hasn't been too bookstore struggling to stay afloat. What's been bookshop that org's footprint? What's been Indy bounds footprint if you know Yes, I think bookshop dot org's was a really exciting development that a lot of people were skeptical about when it had its soft lunch in January, Because if you I have been in publishing for awhile. You get kind of cynical When someone says, Hey, we want to be the independent online alternative to Amazon. You know, the notion was well if people want to support independence. The whole reason is they want to go on brows and be there and have connection. With the booksellers and with the community, So why would they shop online? And then? Of course, as they say, the pandemic happened, and suddenly bookshop became really critical Avenue for a lot of bookstores. The one thing that they do that a lot of bookstores. A cz we heard from our collar were weren't set up to do is that they can handle all the inventory and that even the sales trip, you know the sales transactions so that the store Doesn't make us much as they would if they had handled the sale themselves, but they can still Have ah, a way to connect with their community and and to sell books through bookshop. So for stores that didn't have online sales capabilities, Yet bookshop was a way to quickly get set up and to continue selling to people. And some stores. Then we're able to transition into having their own online sales. And you know that way they could make a little more, although there's higher cost associated with having to get the inventory and ship it and all of that. Um The other thing that bookshop dot orc has done is, you know, in addition to kind of creating an online space for these stories and a way for people who felt like they wanted supported independence, but felt like they had to shop online for safety reasons during the pandemic. In addition to that, there also just raising money for independents who want who need the support even if they're not selling books through book shop, So I think they've raised more than $7.5 million already. And they divvy that up a few times a year or twice a year. So I think the one kind of bit of skepticism I've heard from booksellers themselves is that Bookshop, you know, because it got a lot of press when it launched and because it really you know, was this kind of new, uh Sort of online space for independence might have unintentionally Andy Hunter would say, because I talked about this siphoned off some sales from independence. If people are allegedly that shopping, a book shop is the same as supporting your independent. You know, it's not exactly the same they don't make quite as much through bookshop. I want to touch on something that I sort of picked up. We're talking to the bookseller from South Bend, Indiana, that there might be a schism even in the independent bookseller world between the small stores and then some of the larger ones and stores that were able to get PPP loans like the Strand, which took out alone, so people are asking some people on Twitter asking like, why are you laying off people if you were able to get this loan I mean, we don't know what the books look like. But that's a reasonable question. What book sellers? What are they asking for? From the federal and state governments? And what is New York done it all. So I know that that is a real divide, who was able to get PPP and who who wasn't and and I don't know exactly what the criteria is, if it has to do with the size of the store. I do think you know it's kind of across the board. Some larger independence are really struggling, including the strand. I think they said their sales were down 70% compared to last year, and so are some smaller stories where they haven't been able to get the PPP so It sort of depends on I guess the level of community engagement and how many people are shopping there. What There are other costs are and you know how large their staff is. And things like that. I know it was a real lifeline for a lot of people early on. When the stores were completely shut down Physically, they were able to retain their staff because You know, they couldn't even have people come into the store to send out shipments of books so they couldn't even really very easily handle online sales at that time. So I think the other, you know, real stress on independence has been that shift, too. Mailing books. It's very expensive, and they're spending a lot more than they ever thought they would on, you know, just stamps and packaging and things like that. So that's adding on to the other costs associated with it, which you know, mainly are bent and paying your staff and then, of course, inventory and overhead and things like that. Let's go to line one. Lee in Peekskill wants to give a shout out. Lee shouted out so much, Alison. Oh, thank you. The bruised apple used book and record store in Peekskill. I was just there this weekend. And you know you need those records, too. But, you know, used books. They're great. Let's keep them recycled, You know, don't get new stuff or provide previously loved.

"A listen and in his own words I've been in the book world for a long time and I was watching it Amazon through market share by double digits year over year Intel they broke fifty percent of consumer book market in the U. S. for physical books not just detox they and I started to worry about what's going to happen is like it becomes more tenuous every single year and I don't think that the ten year the stores that have no online capacity whatsoever it's hard to imagine they're gonna survive so we wanted to give a platform that would solve a lot of problems that small business but faced trying to compete with a completely ruthless completely efficient machine you get to the point that one single player controls over fifty percent of the market it becomes very dangerous for the health of all the other player Andy compete with Amazon really what are you thinking well you know it's funny because I put everybody out they were conventional wisdom is that compete with Amazon is basically the stupidest worst possible idea that an entrepreneur could ever have how stupid is in his idea well when you execute a like Andy hunter has not so stupid at all take a lesson in old fifty thousand dollars for the books in March and April we sold about five million eight million dollars worth of books by the end of may we've raised almost one point seven million dollars for local bookstores in just eleven weeks we have captured one and a half percent of Amazon's total market for physical books the growth has been in pain without it and take two or three years to reach that level but we reset and Levin we so how did he do this let me break it down he relied on the power of getting his story out to an audience hungry to embrace his mission those of.

"Books and still support local bookstores the website looks a lot like Amazon but the difference is where the money goes ten percent of all profits from bookshop that worker pool divided among indie bookstores who often there's also the affiliate program with bookstores outsource their sales to the online retailer and received a direct commission the founder of bookshop is Andy hunter who also co founded the publisher electric literature and website we know it literary hub and had he joins me now Andy welcome to all of it I thank you so much it's great to be here so what were you doing right before you got the idea for bookshop I was sent a bookseller dinner yet and when turns to it as the big bookseller annual kind of trade fair gathering and I was talking to a bunch of booksellers about the need for something that would help them compete on mine and I actually one the bookseller I was sitting next to Christine who owns work bookstores in Brooklyn and New Jersey she asked me to help them out and so I spent about you know six months thinking of an idea and then I spent about a year image thing everybody was a good idea and raising money for it and in July of twenty nineteen we finished raising money and then we built it as fast as we could because we felt that there was a great deal of urgency to support independent bookstores even then because Amazon was growing at such a rapid rate they they've grown from thirty five percent of consumer sales to fifty over fifty percent of consumer sales in just four years so there was a real urgent need to allow independent bookstores to compete with Amazon online effectively and to retain their audience and the customers when the customers are shopping online because a lot of people love their local bookstores but when it's eleven o'clock at night nursing on October on a late night TV so you know they'll just order from Amazon and we want to give them a chance to actually continue to support our local bookstores twenty four seven any place any time and so that's why we set up bookshop so why why hadn't something like bookshop emerged earlier well there it it's it's a complicated process and I think that most stores are sort of on their own they were trying to build their own websites and it's expensive to build a website and it's expensive to maintain that and it's a lot of work to fulfill online orders you need to have staff units of inventory and no individual books first infantry can compete with Amazon's either so there's a lot of disadvantages and and it was tough for bookstores to compete there were some stores have great online presence of the great online shopping like Powell's in Portland is a great example but the majority bookstores were left behind because they just didn't have the resources to do it my idea the idea behind bookshop is to go directly to the wholesaler Ingram is the usual sailor the biggest on the U. S. they've got warehouses all over the country and they do consumer direct also meant so duty of the books of model is that the stores don't actually have to touch the books the the orders go from bookshop Ingram Ingram ships the books of.
