Lisa Boothe: The Importance & Origins of Veterans Day
"Look at the fact that it's Veterans Day And I just want to take a little bit of time to talk about Veterans Day why this day is important Why we need to honor a veterans even beyond just one day I mean my God you've got a bunch of people men and women who are willing to lay down their lives for the country we give them a day And Pride Month Pride Month is in our month That seems pretty insane to me But so Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day and it was commemorating commemorating the end of World War I That's how it started And for that reason November 11th 1918 was largely considered the end of the war to end all wars So that's originally the origins of it and then Congress signed so that's kind of the origins of it with November 11th being Veterans Day But what I wanted to talk about and then of course we know every November 11th at Arlington national cemetery the Veterans Day national cemetery commences around 11 a.m. Aretha's laid at the tomb of the unknowns celebrating her veterans honoring or veterans as well

Charlie and Stephen Moore Discuss the Downfall of Chicago
"Joining me now is one of my favorite guests and a fellow chicagoan as we share our lament of the downfall of a once great American city. That's not why he's here today to talk about, but we always kind of start with the Chicago update. It is Steve Moore. Steve, welcome back to the program. Steve, every time you come back on the show, another amazing business has left Chicago. Now it's Tyson Foods. Steve, tell us the latest Chicago. I think you still live there. You travel through there, has Chicago finally hit rock bottom. Hey Charlie, great to be with you. It is just heartbreaking to me as somebody who grew up in Chicagoland. And still believes that Chicago is one of the great cities in the world, although I don't think it certainly was when I was growing up. I'm not so sure you could say that today, given the control, the inflation is, I mean, the taxes are so high in Chicago now, the schools are horrific. Corrupt leadership and a lot of the business leaders who I've talked to who have moved out of Chicago, Charlie, they're telling me they could even, they could put up with all of that, but what they can't put up with is that the danger that they face and their employees face having a business located in Chicago with the shootings with the muggings with the crime that is so rampant. And so you're right, this is about the 5th. I mean, look, Sears is out of Chicago now. Citadel is out of Chicago now. Boeing moved out of Chicago. Tyson's food. And by the way, Tyson's food moved out. I mean, my goodness, how bad can it be in Chicago? When you're moving out of Chicago moving to Arkansas, I'm just sort of saying that tongue in cheek, but it is so sad to see, even the Chicago Bears are moving out of Chicago. You see that? Yeah, that's right they're moving to Arlington hikes. The Chicago Bears can't even stay at soldier field.

Reflecting on Ronald Reagan's Memorial Day Speech
"And another speech that Reagan gave during this time and at a moral day speech, he talks about those individuals and I want to emphasize what he sort of talks about here. He talks about it being an Arlington that a sharecropper son who became a hero to lonely people. Joe Lewis came from nowhere, but he knew how to fight. And he galvanized the nation in the days after Pearl Harbor, when he put on the uniform of his country and said, I know we'll win because we're on God's side. Audie Murphy is here. Audie Murphy of the wild wild courage for what else for what else would you call it when a man balanced the top of a disabled tank stops an enemy advance saves lives, rallies his man and all of it single handedly. When he radioed for artillery support and was asked how close the enemy was to his positions, he said, wait a minute, I'll let you speak to them. These are the stories he brought these up.

Extreme Athlete Tom Jones Is Quit-Proof
"Having a fun and important conversation. I like all my conversations to be fun and important with Tom Jones. He's an extreme athlete marine veteran doing something right now that is amazing. He is running across most of the country a marathon a day to draw attention to the ideas of patriotism, faith, and specifically united we pledge dot org, building a replica of this American village that's in montevallo, Alabama. They want to do that in Utah, which is where he's going to end up. So Tom, I got to ask you, when you're running, at what pace do you run so that this is possible? Because I mean, I just really, again, can hardly imagine to go 26 miles in a day, and then to do it the next day and the next day, how do you, what have you settled into at this point that makes this possible for you? Is 26.2 miles a day and I can tell you one thing that was the last 6.2 miles, those are the ones that kick your butt. So what I've settled into is a piece of right around four to 5 miles an hour. I mean, it's just unbelievable to me that you are able to do this. And so you're doing this every day and you're about halfway from montevallo, Alabama to this place in Utah. So where does that put you now in Texas? Yeah, that puts me in Arlington, Texas, so we're approaching halfway through it. And so I think in two days, we'll have been at this 30 days. We're going to be doing 76 of them in a row. This time, you know, last time I did this, I did a 121 marathons in a row, but that was back in 2000. And my piece was much faster than it is now, although, you know, it's just a matter of being quit proof, man.

Making the Case for Heaven with Lee Strobel
"A few books out there that really change your life and change the way you view things. And I remember where I was when I first heard about this book and then I saw the movie and I just give it out to everyone that has questions about the Bible and about their place in the world and the author really his story resonated with me because we're both from the same place the suburbs of Chicago and the book is the case for Christ that's phenomenal and then there was kind of a sequel book, the case for heaven, which is now coming out as a movie. So I'm super thrilled and honored to have with us the author and kind of the mastermind behind it all. Lee's struggle. Lee, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Oh, thanks so much, Charlotte. I appreciate the opportunity. I didn't know you were from suburban Chicago. Where'd you grow up? Wheeling and went to willow creek. Come on. And as well as harvest Bible chapel. So we kind of is from the same area. Oh my goodness, I grew up in Arlington Heights, went to prospect high school and I went to my house. So awesome. At the same time, the same type of place. So yeah, it's a great, great honor to lead. Tell us about the movie that's coming out. Well, it's based on my book, the case for heaven, which was inspired by an incident that happened to me ten years ago when I almost died. My wife found me unconscious, calling the ambulance. I woke up in the emergency room and the doctor looked down at me and said, one step away from a coma two steps away from dying. And so I there between life and death for quite a while so the doctors were able to save my life. And this is a very clarifying experience for me. When you get in that kind of position, you really want to know for sure what happens when you close your eyes for the last time in this world. And so I'm a Christian. I believe what the Bible teaches, but I've also got a skeptical gear. You know, my background's in journalism and law. So I tend to be a bit skeptical. So I decided to investigate what is the evidence both inside and outside the Bible that supports the idea that there is an afterlife that we continue to live on. Now that resulted in my book, the case for heaven and then we produced a documentary based on that book is going to be in movie theaters coast to coast for three nights only April 4th, 5th and 6th.
What's Under the Lincoln Memorial? Sec. Ryan Zinke Explains
"Secretary zinke, will you explain to those who have no idea what's under the Lincoln Memorial? Well, the memorial is the only memorial on the mall that has actually dug down to bedrock. And I think the placement of the Lincoln Memorial is divine. Because it sits across the river is Arlington national cemetery. And the fight for freedom and the ability for our country to reach out and have an opportunity for everyone. The Civil War is a tough period in our history, but to get to where we are today, we had to go through and fight for our freedom and fight for those that needed freedom. And across the Potomac across the memorial bridge and it leads you to Lincoln Memorial. And going underneath it, you understand the majesty and complexity of that building, but also it should be recognized that linking is facing into the mall. And there are some that would say, well, you know, general Lee. General Lee and old America was across the river, which is true. But Lincoln is now ahead of Lee. And Lincoln is facing also Martin Luther King. And they're all facing in one common direction, and that is our capital.
Students Fight Mask Mandates in Illinois
"So there are still some states that have mask mandates right now not every state. But Illinois is one of them. And in the suburbs of Chicago, see I got my good Chicago accent too. Still, kids are starting to fight back and it is really amazing. Now, since many of their parents feel as if they need to wear cloth masks all day long, the students are fighting back themselves. And honestly, God bless them. We are 100% behind these students. Let me say it again. We are a 100% behind these students. Why the parents have put up with this nonsense for as long as they have? I know there's a lot of parents that haven't, but the students don't care. Now, a judge in Illinois has struck down the mask mandates. High school students in a Chicago suburb, I know exactly where this is. Right near saint vital and other places, they're just walking out. Walking out of school, they are done. Saint viter high school as well. Saint viter and Arlington Heights Illinois about 6 minutes from where I grew up. I know a lot of kids have went to saint viter. Their parents are paying a ton of money intuition to go to saint viter. Saint virus is a great school and saint viter is actually, here's a little fun fact for you, Ted nugent went to saint viter. There you go. So they got that Ted nugent energy there. We're getting some tape of it, but it's starting to happen all across the country, and if you have stories of students starting to rise up against mask mandates, you guys can email us anytime freedom at Charlie Kirk dot
Project Veritas Founder James O'Keefe on EcoHealth, DARPA and Fauci Lying Under Oath
"James, I want to ask you, you also exposed this story. I think last week, doctor Robert Malone and Naomi wolf say that this is bigger than The Pentagon papers. So it's potentially civilizational altering stuff. The story has multiple parts, one with darpa, and then one with potential suppression of early treatments. There's a mention of the trusted truth initiative. James, can you kind of update our audience on this story? So these were documents that, again, were transmitted to us from a source. I wonder if the FBI will raid me again that you're starting to certainly sense a pattern here. It's absurd. I won't tell you who the source is, but we received documents from inside the Department of Defense, specifically darpa, defense advanced research projects agency in Arlington, Virginia, which is a division of the Department of Defense, and these documents were authored by a major in the United States Marine Corps who was a fellow at darpa. So effectively they're sort of Pentagon papers that we've broken last week. And the documents state that eco health alliance, this group approached darpa in the Department of Defense for a gain of function research on COVID born coronaviruses in March of 2018. The Defense Department rejected this proposal on the grounds it was too risky. It was too dangerous. So our department defense thought, no, now that we can't proceed with this research for obvious reasons, it was lead to, I don't know, a pandemic or something. And then the Marine Corps major writes in this document, but Anthony Fauci, as head of naid, a proceeded with this research. So the Marine Corps statements, obviously a credible source here inside darpa, would seem to indicate that Doctor Fauci live under oath. Now Charlie, we break the documents and the very next morning Fauci is being questioned by senator Marshall and Fauci does address project veritas mentions us by name, authenticates the documents, but calls into question the credibility of this report and the Marine Corps guy who wrote it. And I believe Fauci is playing semantic games because obviously there were two separate proposals here. Fauci didn't see the precise identical proposal that eco health alliance approached darpa with, it was a different one, but fascinating stuff. And I think that there'll be more whistleblowers and documents coming out as a result of this exposure.

Back in 1864, the union was running out of space to bury Civil War casualties. Military officials decided to solve the problem by appropriating part of the Arlington Virginia plantation that belonged to Mary Anne custis Lee, the wife of confederate general Robert E. Lee, and turning it into a military burial ground. Private William christman, a 21 year old soldier from Pennsylvania, who died of the measles before he got a chance to see combat was the first to be buried there. According to the Arlington national cemetery website, though neither Robert E. Lee nor his wife ever tried to return to the former plantation, their eldest son eventually filed a lawsuit, claiming the land had been illegally seized, and in 1882 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed and Congress had to purchase the property from him for a $150,000 so that the national cemetery could continue. And here's that followed, Arlington national cemetery, which covers 624 acres, that's 252 hectares across the Potomac river from Washington, D.C., became perhaps the nation's most hallowed ground, the final resting place for many of the nation's military heroes, from general Douglas MacArthur and private Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of World War II to service members killed in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, also buried at Arlington are explorers, astronauts, and Supreme Court Justices. The grave of president John F. Kennedy marked with a gas and electric eternal flame that's designed to remain lighted despite wind and rain, attracted more than 16 million mourners in the first three years after his 1963 assassination. But the cemetery, which has become the final resting place for more than 400,000 people, is rapidly filling up with more than 7000 being added each year. According to a report prepared by cemetery officials for Congress in 2017, there are fewer than 70,000 spaces left, and even with a current expansion project that will add nearly 11,000 below ground graves and 16,400 above ground spots, these cemetery is projected to be full by the early 2040s. The report said, ANC and those it exists to serve must therefore confront the reality that, at some point in the future, the cemetery will no longer continue to operate as it does today. Most veterans from the recent wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and the war on terrorism will not have the option to be buried at ANC. Even our heroes who are killed in action or those who have earned the Medal of Honor will not be buried at ANC with an approximately three decades due to a lack of space. At a March 2018 hearing by the House armed services committee, Karen Durham aguilera, executive director of the army's national military cemeteries, further described the predicament. She explained in an army media release, the current veteran population is over 20 million. The retiree population is over 2 million, the total force, both active and reserve is over 2 million right now. Today we have around a 100,000 available burial spaces. We can not serve that population. Even a proposed $274 million expansion that would add another 38 acres that's 15 hectares along these cemetery southern border would only buy an additional decade. That's why officials are now contemplating changing Arlington's eligibility requirements. Under the present rules, active duty members of the armed services, as well as service members who have served at least one day of active duty and stayed in uniform long enough, a traditionally 20 years to earn retirement benefits are eligible for below ground burial. So are their spouses and children. And so our recipients of various metals and prisoners of war who died after November 30th, 1993. In addition, active duty and retired members and their spouses and children, as well as reservists and National Guard members who died while on active duty or performing full-time service, are eligible for above ground burial in the columbarium, also known as the niche wall. In the 2017 report, army officials proposed a range of possible rule changes. The most restrictive option would allow in only those who were killed in action and or were awarded the Medal of Honor. The report said, this option can be expected to result in delaying closure of ANC for at least two centuries and less our nation experiences large scale conflict and higher numbers of service members killed in action. But such a move also would exclude the vast majority of military veterans and their families, and seems likely to encounter a pushback. Gerardo Avila, a deputy director of a veterans association called the American legion, says that the issue of what to do about Arlington is still in the discussion stages, though clearly, Arlington is reaching capacity and something needs to be done. In a resolution at the American legion's 2016 convention, the organization urged Congress to step in and pass a law that would limit Arlington to service members who die on active duty, a winners of the Medal of Honor and other decorations, World War II era veterans who left the service 30% or more disabled, prisoners of war and career service members. We spoke via email with John towels, director of national security and foreign affairs for the organization, veterans of foreign wars. The group is opposed to severe restrictions on eligibility for interment at Arlington. He said, we advocate for a solution that will ensure that the benefits that they earned through their service remain available to them. Because of this, the VFW can not support changes that would take benefits away from veterans and family members who have already earned them. Many of whom have already made plans to be buried at Arlington. Another option to restricting eligibility for Arlington would be to create a non continuous annex on land around the armed forces retirement home campus in Washington, D.C., about 8 and a half miles, that's 13 and a half kilometers away. Tao said that much of the site's expanse would be available. The United States soldiers and airmen's home national cemetery another burial ground operated by the army already is nearby. But if it becomes more difficult to be buried at Arlington, veterans still have the option of being buried at another of the a 135 national cemeteries that the national cemetery administration operates in 40 states and Puerto Rico. They would still be entitled to the same ceremony, presidential memorial certificate and perpetual care.

"Thousand tons a year. That's roughly ten fully loaded semi trucks a day. This is where arlington residents food. Waste and yard waste will end up starting this week. The county really has aggressive sustainability goals. Broadly eric grabowski is the county solid. Waste bureau chief. Arlington already has among the highest recycling rates in virginia and has a goal to recycle or compost ninety percent of waste by twenty thirty eight. Grabowski says composting food scraps will cost households twelve dollars a year and it creates a valuable product a nutrient rich soil amendment that makes plants healthier just basically creating this loop where food has another valuable life as opposed to go into an incinerator to atlanta so by weight. Food waste is the largest category of what americans throw out each day filling up about one quarter of our trash cans. Your banana peels and apple. Cores might seem harmless. It's all biodegradable right. But it's actually a big contributor to climate change when organic material breaks down in landfills it releases. Large amounts of methane a highly potent greenhouse. Gas making composting easy. Just set it out at. The curb is one way to cut down on those emissions. Brenda plot with the institute for local. Self reliance has been following composting trends for decades. Curbside has really been growing. Not just government supported programs also private entrepreneurs offering it according to putz research in two thousand five. There were less than one million households nationwide served by curbside composting programs now. They're more than five million like recycling. It started out on the west coast where many cities launched curbside composting programs in the late nineties or early. Two thousands in the dc region jurisdictions have been stymied because there aren't many local facilities to process the organic material and unlike recycling. You can't exactly ship. It overseas often counties and cities look for one fifty acre site. They can handle everything and you don't really need to do on site. Can we have two sites. can we have three sites. Can we have a little bit more distributed infrastructure disease. Been trying to start a curbside. Composting program in two thousand seventeen.

"You know this is a great example of how stupid a lot of people are and also a lot of people on social. Media are just trolling. Oh i think it's the former. I think people are the ones both but most of it is is the first and kinda. I'm gonna give people a tiny pass here. Just tiny one because this afghanistan story is so big and it's so harrowing seeing some of the imagery of the people falling off the planes and crowd in the airport. That you just kind of scroll through it all just kind of plant this narrative in your brain of. Oh my gosh. this is crazy. This is crazy. This is my gosh. another picture. Another video but mixed up in all of it is a video of a bunch of people running through these glass doors. Like it's black friday and it's being shared around twitter and facebook and all that as people walking to the capital kabul airport and afghanistan. The only problem is it's from january of two thousand nineteen before a cowboys playoff game at. At and t. stadium. That's the video. People are saying. Look at this horrifying footage of afghans running into the airport. And how weird that. They're all wearing cowboys right. And there's a cowboy star section one fourteen right that people are dumb i it you just have to look at this thing for maybe ten seconds ago. Now wait a second. That doesn't look like afghani infrastructure. That's a giant glass door with stadium seating on the other side. Nobody's wearing robes no. I you know one one. Twitter user called it surreal footage from kabul airport. Another user asks where is where is the un. yeah on the on the other side of the atlantic. Yeah i love the headlines or google just cowboys stadium afghanistan. The fact check cup. Kabul airport is not in texas. That's where we are and there's no social media can do nothing about this. You know twitter's leading this. They should not be calling this misinformation. People are going to be stupid. People are going to be stoop right. If you're not you know if your head's not screwed on enough right enough to where you stare at the video for just five seconds and be like no hang on. It's all it takes is five seconds to look at it to no no. That's not afghanistan. You don't have enough enough self interest to think it's important to be sure of what you believe you've seen or read. Just then just do take take it one step. Don't forward it. don't republish this stuff. People do that on soc on facebook all the time. They'll share something and they won't read that the date that the article was published was like two thousand thirteen. Yeah yeah that happens a lot. Yeah and then imagine a second check. It's hard to tell. Actually because sometimes i will be googling something for a story that we're we're talking about here on the air. Yeah and i'll find several different versions of the story. But none of them at the top have the original date on some of them do but a lot of them. Don't so it's kinda hard you have to use your brain. You have to go look into this stuff. You're asking a lot of people. Use their brains i know. And that's why we that's why we are where we are politically. Yeah all right Rashida talib one of the members of the squad in congress right. She has disclosed that She has thousands of dollars in rental income last year between fifteen and fifty thousand dollars in rental income. So why is that a story because the squad specifically to lead has been very vocal and very loud general everywhere about wanting to cancel rent during the pandemic she cosponsored a bill no rent during the pandemic. It's putting people out of work. They're running mont. Losing money. can't afford to pay bub-bubba blah. Yes she made upwards of fifty thousand dollars in rental income last year. Well but doesn't that doesn't that mean that she's personally willing to take the hit to sacrifice that income most she get it while she didn't yet apparently fox news asked whether she had given her tendency opportunity to cancel their rent last year and they haven't heard back from her. That's the that's that would change the story a little bit if she actually no. No i take that back. It would not in my opinion because if she's that adamant on people not shouldn't. If i'm ready to leave right now i don't think people should have to pay. I think it's wrong. I think the kovin virus is hurting people. It's i'm it shouldn't have then. She wouldn't charge rent. she herself. What charge her tenants rent. Say hey we're going to push this back. We're going to give you a note until we know what the federal funding is going to be what you're saying. She charged him anyway. Right well You know i. It seems to me like they're the worst that you could say. Honestly is that. She's just doesn't wanna be all alone in this if she's not going to make money nobody should make money. He's making plenty of money as a congressman and she's one of the members of the squad. They've got tons of support. So that's i. I'll tell you what their members of the squad. I actually respect. Not because of their policy. I fundamentally disagree with almost everything the squad stands for however i respect some of them in that they stand up for what they believe in run and they aren't always hypocrites. Now it's when things like this happen. The make my eyes roll back to oklahoma. Because i just can't i it's like what are we doing you. You can't do this. You can't be that loud about dot paying rent and then charge people fifty thousand dollars in rent now. Here's here's some hardcore. Hyp hypocrisy to the next one. Yeah nathan j. Robinson is the editor in chief of the socialist magazine called current affairs. Now i don't know i've never heard of this magazine me. Neither but i.

"At arlington park. Unless some eleventh hour miracle happens in the track is not shut down at the end of the year. it seems like all signs pointing to that. This is the final time that these racist definitely the final time. They'll be running arlington quite possibly the last time that they are run to the races. Do have some of the top horses in america though so it. It is a nice consolation to get in the last time that they are run. But we'll start with the first race at arlington park the pucker up stakes and i'm going to just mention this really quickly. I'm not gonna get into full analysis in this race but saremi is the worst. I'm going to pick in here for trainer. Our own hardy. This affiliate who only has two karoo starts to her name was at saratoga. In september last year she did not race again until running at arlington park. In on july sixteenth. That was a very good effort for her. At arlington park. It was a race was originally scheduled for the turf. Came off was running the all weather. She won by eight and a half lanes. I think think she's got a chance to win this race. And at the end of the day i am going to be picking a lot of favorites this weekend so i wanna go away from a horse who i i. I wanna go away from some horses. Who i think will be Very heavily played. Not that sarah is not going to get played. But i think that there will be a couple more horses to take a little bit more than she does. And we'll move on now to the first of three great ones at arlington park This is the beverly d stakes. This is very simple on paper to worse race. And i really really don't think in practice that it will be anything other than a two-horse race it's mean mary versus santa barbara santa barbara and a very good effort in the belmont olsen. She's been doing some nice running overall in her career to of her first three career starts after she broke her maiden she didn't run again until the one thousand guineas that was a disappointing effort for her in the one thousand guineas but it wasn't a horrible effort then she was very much well beaten up some oaks but she rebounded ran a very very strong group one placing at the correct behind thundering nights a a mayor who mean mary actually beat by a nose in the new york stakes at belmont park on belmont par belmont stakes friday. So you i mean mary. I'm going to give the slight edge. Just because she's the older horse and she did finish ahead of the horse who beats santa barbara and santa. Barbara's best career effort. But you can go either way mean. Mary n. Santa barbara are going to be very close in the odds board and i think they're going to be very close in the race. All science points to this being a two-horse race. I favor mary but it's a very very tight. It's a very tight margin between those two. And i don't think one is that much better than the other now. We're going to move onto the race. That was formerly known as the secretary. Of and i will call for the second i will call it the secretary stakes after the name of its you know what race i'm talking about that's bruce st stakes you know. I think you know. I'm not going to get into my opinions on the name change. I think it's you know in short. I don't know why this racist name was changed. I think it's a great disservice to the horses. Secretary was that he is great. One was renamed to something random. But that's beside the point. This race is also not very good And you know it's i i i would say honestly your best shot is just look at which long-shot new like in this race and take your pick because you're not going to beat any favorites in any of the other graded stakes or in the other two grade ones. So you're not gonna be making too much money this week in an arlington so might as well take your shot in here. But i didn't like any longshots in here that much so i'm just going to go to a horse. Who has one. Recently a net skins burned. He broke his maintenance els park in only his second career start. It was a nice effort for him. He won by a lincoln quarter His first career start Was in february gulfstream. You've finished eighth there You know again. I really don't think highly of any of these forces in here. I don't want any parts of the favorites and ginsburg was the non favorite horse that i disliked the lease so i just defaulted to him and now. We're going to move on to the final race at arlington park. The arlington million are what is now being referred to as mr d. But i in many people will still call this. The arlington million In this race is headlined by domestic spending the best her force in america. I really don't think that there's anything else to to be said about this. It looks on paper. It's a one horse race. I don't really like anyone in here to defeat zulu alpha. He's six to five morning. Line armories the only horse who probably can give him a a a real test in here. But even armory is of course who it was inconsistent or is inconsistent at the group stakes level in group group through races over in the united kingdom and domestic spending has been beating the best that america has to offer. Armory is not a next level european. So you know. I'm perfectly happy to pick domestic spending. Because i believe that domestic spending is at the moment the best her force in america. And you know when there's a horse this good and a few like this. There's no reason to pick against him. So domestic spending is going to be my pick. it's very chocolate arlington. But you can't really avoid that. That's the way the racist came up. Now we'll move onto two more racist at saratoga. The first one that we're going to preview is saratoga special. This is the colts edition of the two year old steak at saratoga last week and got the adirondack this week got the saratoga special. There are a lot of really promising. Two year olds in this race. It was very tough to choose between a lot of them because there are a lot of horses coming out of i start. Victories and there are some horses that have run in stakes efforts before or have multiple races under them but their maiden victory was very nicer. You know there's several factors in this race but ultimately the horse i'm going go with Is stolen base for mike maker. Mike maker has been winning everything saratoga and you know i'm just going to stick with the hot in here. On his career debut effort was a victory was a very nice effort for him. And if i can get a mike maker horse winning first time out in a stake race. I don't know whether or not he's going to be the favourite because there's so many good horses in here but you know if he's if he's a decent price in here and then i'm gonna take that price ever more so that would make me even higher on him than i already am right now. I think he's got a good shot to win this race. There's a lot of horses in here. Though you can make a case for pretty much anybody in here and you know picking you can pick a lot worse in here and you feel good about them but stolen bases my pick in here though and now we're going to move onto the final race. That will preview from this week in the great one four star dave at saratoga. I'll probably have a youtube preview for this. So i'm just going to briefly..

"Fillies as the these gr- early great stakes races tend to do now. I'm not going to say she's the best two year old filly In the country or that she's going to want british cup juvenile fillies. But she's on that track you know if she can sustain that kind of effort than that. This should be very scary effort for later on in the year. If you're going to be against her because she clearly has a lot of that was a very very good victory in her first career graded stakes win and now we'll move on to the final race. We're going to recap from this past weekend and this was the saratoga oaks degrade three saratoga oaks which was won by coal nima. And you know. This is not a hard prediction. So i'm not gonna act like I predicted something. That was absolutely unforeseen. But i said after the belmont oaks that lima was going to win. Whatever race that they let her win. I picture in the saratoga figured that they were going to let her free. Run out on the lead. And that's what ended up happening. Coal nima went out. There had a very favourable trip. Set the kind of easy fractions that you would wanna see from her. She had enough late to hold on and win it. Very good run. Underneath from higher truth. Higher truth is affiliated wanted to pick in this race but i just knew the race was going to shape up four colon. Lima so But those are two phillies. Who are very strong feelings. Going forward I was texting a couple people including eric after the race that you know if she continues to get these kinds of trips i think only is going to win Obviously going to continue to win these racists. I was far as to say. I think she'll win the great one. Qe to at keeneland. Obviously she's going to have to run their and she'll have to get the trip but if she does two of those things assuming that does happen. I think that she will win. The qe to and then hire truth is also affiliate. I put this out on twitter. Chad brown has been his older females have been kind of average this year but he's got some really really under the radar good it three year old fillies and they're under the radar because nobody is really talking about how good history old phillies are and they also have broken through yet on the major stakes all but i think the more we go on the longer they get out to and the the older that they get you'll start to see it from these phillies sloppy sox's one that i've talked a lot. Higher truth is another one. I think higher truth you know i would love to see her run in the jockey club. Aqsa mile and three eighths. I think she'd love that You know she didn't. She got her first win at a mile underneath but she's done her best running the longer that she goes. This is actually cutting back from the belmont oak. So definitely something. That was You know. I'm not gonna say that. It was the reason she lost the race or that she would've won but something that you can say. Wow she's as good as she is And this was a cut back for her. Imagine what she's gonna do when she gets out to these longer distances so really like higher. Truth cohen lima. I think is going to continue to win all these races if she gets these kind of setup so that's my verdict on this It was a little bit disappointed with the effort. that gam's mission had. She may have been a little bit more place than she wanted to see. That than i would have wanted to see her but she. She's a solid horse. I think she'll continue to pick up checks but aside from that. I don't really know whether or not she's next. Level graded stakes or not. I don't know that. I'll pick her another one of these races but She is. She is a fine worse than i think you will find her and racist. She will be a good price and she will run big in more racist similar to this kind of effort. And now we're gonna move on to buy sell hold from this past weekend. My by from the weekend is absolutely going to be soldier rising. He was my value horse in the saratoga derby and he definitely proved to me that that was in my opinion. Only the beginning of what we're going to see from him in the united states. I expect to see some big things from him. Stakes wins And eventually some really really high level maybe even some great stakes wins four him so very much like what i saw from soldier rising. He's going to be my by. My hold is going to be swiss skydiver just for the moment just because this was a race where she probably wasn't fully cranked up and it wasn't her first choice race but i it's d- i acknowledged that it's pushing it and you know for the most part she's gotta run a a winning effort maybe not win but she she might not win but she's got a run a backup to her form that we saw last year if she wants to be taken seriously in the desktop division because i'm very close to failing on swiss scott ever but i am going to hold her just one more time and myself from this weekend is going to be hey. His team from the alydar stakes was a horse who is over achieving. For a very long time he ran some really nice efforts in grade ones but it was going to come to an end at the at some point in. It's come to an end after running three really good grade one placings And no picking up a couple of other nice checks. He ran a solid effort in dubai. But he's just not in the same horses coming back from dubai And at this point. I'm going to give up on his team. It was a nice story. But i don't really see much more coming from him for the rest of the year so he's myself from this weekend. I now want to move onto previewing some of the racist from this weekend. It's a bit of a later group or a bit of a lighter group of races. Although there are four grade ones in three at arlington park. And unfortunately this is the final millions weekend.

"Just didn't shape up for her too much. We'll move on now to the great one saratoga jury which was an x rays on the on the cart at saratoga in this race shaped out pretty much how nobody thought it was going to shape out because the conventional wisdom was the speed was going to go out there and carry in this race and there wasn't going to be any kind of any kind of horses pressuring each other and knocking horses out of the race. But that's not how it played out. And that's why you run the race cellist bolshoi ballet and cadillac. All through them. Who were horses. That i picked bolshoi ballet. Eric really liked cadillac. In chelsea was one of my to value horses in the race. Just because i thought chelsea was going to be able to carry those were just went pretty fast early and i think for the first time all year in new york i saw a turf a longer turf race in which a horse was actually challenged on the lead so that was something that was definitely very refreshing to see. Even though it costs the horse. I picked the race but at the end of the day. Those horses kind of took each other out and state of rest. Who's coming in for joseph. O'brien ran a very very good effort in victory there. He capitalized on those other horses. Taking each other out in terms of the fractions wanna on winning this race by a length very good effort also underneath from soldier. Rising horse who. I said. well this wasn't going to be his race because it was his first start in the united states. He was going to need the race. But i think going forward that this was a very positive effort for him. First time in america also going a little bit shorter than i think he wants to go. I think he's going to do his best. And a mile and a quarter even up to a mile and a half The jockey club. Derby is a mile and a half. I would like to see him there. I don't see a reason why he wouldn't be there The other options are raises at kentucky down. Which would certainly be up his alley. The dueling grounds derby at a mile and five. Sixteenths would also be something that would work out well for him. Just get him out to longer. Distances could build on him very strongly so these two verses ran ran the best race is on the day obviously and they were set up very well and even you know secret. Protector is coming from very very far out of it as well. He ran fifty. Didn't quite get up To finish on the board was very strong effort for him underneath and you know do usual Was the best performing american. It you know. He's going to continue to run these races. He's not the greatest source in the world. But he's not terrible either so you know we'll see him probably continue to pick up checks in these races whether it's finishing third or fourth but outside of that you know i don't really know what is going to be said about the rest of the americans. The rest of them were all pretty average. Cellist really ran as well as he did in the belmont derby because of the setup that he got. So you know we'll see what the rest of the year looks like for these americans. I'm optimistic on soldier. Rising you know if bolshoi ballet's over here if he can stay out of Early speed duels. He's going to continue to win. Races like the belmont durian continue to run well here but you know that obviously remains to be seen a how the racist will shape up going forward and now we'll move onto the feature race from saratoga on saturday. Which was the great one. Whitney in this race was going to establish who the leading older horse was in. The united states is not horse. Clearly right now. As nikko horse throughout the entire year i was never really a big fan of him. And you know whenever knicks go comes up in a race. We always have to have the discussion on conspiracy theories with brad cox and i'm really sick of addressing it so i'm not gonna spend too much time on a too much time on it. Excuse me. I'm just going to say if you're surprised that knicks goes all of a sudden winning these races as a five year old. Just go back and watch the to to best races from his two year old campaign two thousand eighteen through thirty two thousand eighteen breeders cup juvenile. And you'll see why. Knicks go is a great one caliber horse at h five. But you know. I'll move onto this race and this was just an example. Joel rosario taking everybody at sarah everybody else riding in this race to school you know. He hustled knicks. Go out there. Next goal has a very high cruising speed he was able to establish position and then he slowed the pace down. You look at. The fraction show was consistently slowing the pace doubt as they're going through the race and that's really why knicks go was able to win this race the way that he did because next go went out. There sat. that early trip was able to get a very favourable fractions. The numbers look really fast. But you know those were not Nikko was not going that fast. You know the time looks fast. But he was not going as fast as the time may indicate he was and he was definitely going to carry it and once it got to the stretch. He had stuff left. You know maccesfield is worse. I've been saying he's fool's gold. All year i feel my point was validated. I feel like more so than anything else. This was his race This was his chance to grade one win this year. You know he could run an jockey club gold cup. I don't really think he wants any part of a mile and a quarter and you know us clearly not the best older horse. In america there was a lot of hyperbole with him after the stephen foster and in post rankings. But you know this horses a good horse. He he's good at he's a good stakes of a horse. But that's about it. He's not a great one caliber. Horse knicks goes clearly a better horse. He he did run a fairly credible raise. You can't say it was a bad effort for him Talking about the horses underneath silver state ran ran a good race. I was a little bit disappointed. I thought would run a little bit better than that. Swiss skydiver this was ken. Mcpeek said this was a prep for the personal lines. And i'll take him at his word. I'll give her another shot. But you know. I it really is starting to look like with swiss skydiver she peak as a three year old. And it's going to get to a point where i'm not going to be willing to wait around anymore with her by my standards. You know you used just a tough loppers. he's good. He just runs into really tough fields every single time he run so he's a horse if he can get away from these kind of really top level fields then he cannot success. I think he can win. Some more graded stakes this year. If he finds the right racist and with that said we'll move on out to two more races from saratoga. These are on sunday and continuing the extremely hot streak. That the sire gunrunner is on. I mentioned it in the early part of this episode but wicked halo gets another graded stakes when foregone run. I already mentioned that. Papa cap on the best pal for him. This philly wicked halo. Though was very impressive in victory the fraction that she was able to sustain Twenty one for the quarter forty four for the half mile in this race and you know she was on the league for all of it. She pulled away and won by three and a half lengths and the worst who finished second and third were coming from really far out of it. Mainstay and jails rocket were the two who are closest to two-wicket halo microbiome and jails rocket. They both faded in their microbiome. Finish fifth in jails rocket. Finished second mainstay. Also who's relatively close. She was beaten fourth in that race. So it was a very impressive effort for wicked halo. you know she is. I would say right now. She kind of established herself as the leader of the two year old..

"It'd be recent. I'd give him a good shot to win easier races like that. I don't think he's going to step up at a great one level. That might be where he ends up next but you know it all remains to be seen with him. He's a good horse. But i don't really know how good he is. He's not one that i overly like but he has some talent. And in the right circumstances could a great stakes winner. And now we'll move onto the final race from friday at saratoga. This was the troy steaks and this was one by fast boat a horse. Who is you know. i'm not going to call any horse wins the stakes race of the sprint division. The official leader of the division. Just because that's how that's how everything works out in the sprint. Division will win a race and the loser next start. Everybody's really inconsistent fast boats effort in the twin spires turf sprint was a really nice effort for him. And it was just that instance of having the one poor effort in the jaipur at belmont but certainly is back on on the winning ways now in over the course of his career. He's been very consistent horse for the most part that one poor effort in the jaipur notwithstanding you go through his career lots of on the board finishes for him so his a whole. You're obviously going to want to continue to watch going toward the turf sprint. I think he's a horse. It's definitely going to factor in the remaining races. I don't you know the breeders cup turf. Sprint is so hard to predict. Especially this far out so i don't want to say that he's a breeders cup. Ju breeders cup turf throwing her. Excuse me if. I almost stick the juvenile in there the breeders cup turf sprint. I don't know that i would say right now. That he's a winner but this division is always so all over the place. You can't forecast anything right now but you at least have a horse. Who for the most part is very consistent. Three or four wins this year onto those winds in graded stakes races. So you know if he continues on the winning ways it's definitely something that the sprint division has been sorely lacking and that's consistent horse. Who can win a high level. We'll move on now to the first race from saturday at saratoga that we're going to recap nets. Degree to glens falls in this race was won by warlike goddess. Who if you listen to raising run. You know how much eric horse. I didn't come around on warlike honest as quickly as eric did but three straight wins for her. All of those have been at the level and five of six and her career. The one loss was a race where she was going a little bit shorter than she wants to go. A mile and three sixteenths and also she didn't have the greatest ride in the world. But you know that effort notwithstanding it has been a very successful year for like goddess up to this point. She loves the mile and three eighths distance. I imagine that the flower bowl is next. She hasn't won a great one. I i don't think she's going to have too much trouble being able to do that. The one question would be is a horse like mean mary going to show up and mean. Mary's horse will obviously get to later on in the episode depending on how things work out at arlington. Obviously if mean. Mary wins she still right up there. But warlike goddess is my opinion. And i'm sure eric's opinion and some other people's opinions as well is right up there with marian you know if mary loses than were like oddest as your top horse in the division and if mean mary does not lose. You have a horse. It is equally as talented as mean mary. More like goddess. Now we're gonna move onto the first of three grade ones from this week in the grade one test and this raise kinda got blown up In terms of the way the race setup on paper. It looked like that this was going to pay smelt on the rollout of horses who wanted to be near the lead And you know none of them really sent bob. African illumination went out there. She set the pace and bella sophia. Who is a horse that Eric mentioned that he liked her on. The show ultimately didn't pick her because he like me thought the pace was going to blow up a little bit in this race it not. That's not what ended up happening. Elimination faded after setting up. Pretty good fractions but those were pretty good fractions Really just on paper and if you look at the way that she was separated from the rest of the field the horses that were closing from deep obligatory josh. Will those our horses. That i would hold on for the moment. Just because they didn't have the kind of set up that they would have needed in this effort. So you know. I would say that those horses. I'm not out on a bella. Sophia arena a huge effort. there Like i mentioned was able to capitalize sit close. and then when she came to the stretch She just pulled away from them. Super sensational is going to continue to be very consistent. Three year old. Filly sharon of very strong second-place finish search results as a horse who i. I don't really know what happened with her. That was kind of the big question. Mark that everybody had about the race she was wide throughout. And i don't think she wanted to be as far back as she was. She's definitely another horse. Obviously you hold on. I think seven furlongs. Maybe a little bit too short her. She's going to do. Well i think if she gets back out to the mile mile in sixteen distance arrays like the castilian at parks in. September is a racer would make a lot of sense for her. I would think that that would be the next target for her. I'd give her a pretty good shot to win there too. I mean it depends on what the rest of the field would look like but looking at the race. Two plus months out You know. I'm not out on searchers. I don't really think any person should be out on search results and this is just a case of bella. Sophie arena very good race super sensational zaveri consistent horse and warlike honest race..

"Welcome back to racing rundown episode number one hundred twenty. We have a lot of stuff to get to from last week and recapping a what was a very loaded stakes calendar across the country. We're not going to waste any time. We'll get into all of those. I'm going to be going alone this week eric. Unfortunately was not able to work out the time to join us this week And as such. We're not going to have made and watch this week. But we will do is next week. Or if eric is unavailable next week the week after will combine all the maiden watches from the weeks that eric is not able to do the show with us for the next couple of weeks or so if it ends up being that long. We'll do those all in one segment. The next time. He is with us so there will be maidens for this week. Just you're going to wait a couple of weeks to get those. And with that mentioned i wanna do a quick recap of the stakes races. That we're not going to be able to talk about fully just for the sake of time because it was very loaded stakes calendar. There were four graded stakes out at delmar and then a couple of west virginia. We didn't preview the west. Virginia races on raising runoff. But if i'm going to mention the ones. Del mar a of them that we did talk about. I thought we might as well talk about. The to urges mentioned the two winners of the races at west virginia the first race. And i'm going to talk about are just mentioned. The winner from is a great to sorrento was won by elm drive for trainer phil d'amato and that's it for grace's on friday for saturday d- mountaineer. We'll start off their winter. The west. virginia. Derby is mr wireless. Uso a horse. Who was the indiana derby winner and is being pointed toward the pennsylvania derby so be interested to see how he continues to improve. He's got a couple of graded stakes to his name Another horse who has been a fairly sod horse for a long time finally broke through in the west. Virginia governor's stakes grade three for older horses out at about near. We'll go to delmar now. Two races on saturday. For the one for the females on the turf the yellow ribbon which was won by princess grace for mike stem and kent disarm oh and also the best pal stakes which was won by papa. Cap gunrunner had a very big weekend With horses been having a big year. Papa cap is another one that adds to the statistics of gunrunner and finally at del mar on sunday the la hoya stakes There was a disqualification that put abso- ferrelli the second place finisher in that race. There were also two listed races at saratoga on the turf. The i was defaced. Tipped lure which is run on saturday that was won by flavius. There were three chad brown. Horses entered only two of them ran. Flavius was the winner of that for the chad brown. Born and then on sunday the phasing tipton della rose also race was headlined by chad brown But chad brown's other horse in that race regal glory took the win there Via dera was coming off a very big layoff in there. I just thought i'd mentioned that about via dera. Because she was the favourite former Grade one winner horse it. A lot of people thought was going to come off huge layoff and get that win their She's a horse. I will hold on. She's not my horse for buy sell or not hold for buy sell hold but another force is coming off. Lay off that she was coming off. You can definitely forgive that kind of effort. So that's it for the racist that were not going to be able to recap fully from this beacon. I'm now going to go back to friday. Because i do want to talk about. The racing hall of fame and this race was won by public sector a very nice horse. In the chad brown. Barn public sector was a horse shoes effort in the breeders. Cup juvenile turn. Go to well for him but outside of that he's never been worse than second. This is his fourth star of the vir- stakes. When of the year he had already won on allowance. race on belmont stakes weekend. That was on the friday of belmont stakes weakened in he ran a very solid effort behind original in manila stakes. I thought that he had might need a little bit more distance in that. That's why didn't pick him but it was a very good effort for him in the racing hall of fame and he's probably going to do his best running around these mile to a mile and a sixteenth distances Maybe stretch to mile and an eighth isn't something that would be impossible for him but he seems like a horse who's going to be a pretty solid at these middle distances. I don't really know what it is on the ballpark for him. There's not really too many of these kind of mile ish races for these three year old colts but chad brown is certainly going to find the race for him and he'll probably have success wherever he goes Going forward There are some good efforts underneath him in here. An exa redeemed himself from a couple of poor efforts that he had in the past. So it was successful race for public sector. And ex-deputy gets back into a position where i i don't know that i'm going to say that he's back because obviously he didn't win a race so you can't say that but i would say i would feel a little bit stronger about him after this effort than i would have before him but i don't really know how relevant that is to him going forward. We'll move on now to race. Eight the alydar. We didn't preview this on racing run on last week. But i felt it's we're talking about because our collectors horse it everybody knows he was on the triple crown trail last year It didn't work out for him for getting to the kentucky derby and then his run in the preakness didn't go too well This is second start of the year and his first. starting to kelly's landing didn't go too well. That was a race where he was victimized by the circumstances of the race. He's a horse. Who wants to be on the leader of not on lead very forwardly placed in the race. He was not in the kelly's landing and that's why he ran the way that he did in that start now. I don't think that he's the greatest horse in the world. I i certainly think that there are better horses than him. I never really bought into him. And i believe he would have bounced in the kentucky. Derby had he run there but he's still a horse. I think in the right circumstances could be a graded stakes winner. There's certain graded stakes races. That i think he he could win. And i would give him a decent shot in forecasting really far down the road but if he were to run in a race like the fe at keeneland on their closing week..

Like I said, we have a great team and the our environment that Ben and I are trying to fall off here is a very, you know, just positive high-energy. So it's a place that we want our guys to be be at and want to come in and, you know, work and again, like not a lot of people, what is? I think they've been told me, they said it was like ninety 7% of people go to a job. They don't like, yeah. And when we got here, we were like, okay, we gotta make it to where we're, the were the outlier, where the 3% we want everyone to want to be here and want to work and have a great time and so far, I think we've done a great job doing now. And speaking of that great job. You guys have been doing, I mean, obviously things change a lot during twenty twenty, you know, I got a new job. I'm sure you guys apply for two jobs and then 2021 rolled off. To a new job at at least for state of Arlington. But obviously hirings like yourself on the up-and-up for the venue. What are some success that you guys have experience so far under your ten eleven twelve weeks working with these Sports Stadium, Arlington? Yeah, I mean, it's the first success that we've had in any sales person that's listening. Will agree with this. I mean, we've said, I don't know how many meetings I think, like a hundred ten meeting wild 10 or weeks or something like that. I mean, one point we're averaging like four meetings, a day, every day and it was we were at the point like we're we're like we just don't have time to actually break down. It was like I need to build a proposal, what? I don't have time cuz I've got another meeting. I need to jump on. So that's one of the early successes that we had just that. The other thing is we brought in three new partners. We've officially announced. Yes those are jlab formally known as jlab audio headset partner of ours, Calandra clicks off. Which is a mouse partner. So it's an ergonomic Mouse has to help with carpal tunnel syndrome. And I'm forgetting one and it's off, and I don't know why I'm spacing on this. I should know that. There's one more I think Bennett did you, you on the call? Did you jump off here? You can't speak more. I can't think of it. But we've also we're about to announce, uh, three more Partners. Hello, which is what should we really expect. So, one of them is a service Branch. One of them is a, I want to give the names away without the official announcement. So one of those service Branch, one of them's and apparel brand, our own Peril accessory brand. And then the other one, again, I'm blanking on the other one. Now there's no, we're just been going on. I'm here now, I needed to call joined the chat. It's great. Great to be on here. These bats either. Thank you. The other part of you were you were blanking? Yep. Yes. So it's Media Group wage. Directly an agency directly working into Esports space. So really, really fun partnership with them there. And then there's about another four that are about to be signed contract wise. That's why I'm probably blanking on the line to speak about. We have a ton here, coming down the pipeline and again, like Thailand mention. I mean, three months have pretty much. We have three Deals, done another four or five about to be about to be signed here. Setting over a hundred and ten meetings. Just crazy. Crazy, crazy crazy. So really exciting to be a part of it. That's awesome. And also welcome with the cold then I appreciate you getting on. Yeah I mean just just I mean again I can like we've been saying like it's in sales it's like we find them. Take we take pride in our wins and our winds are setting. Those meetings are winds are signing those deals things like that, the success been and I knew we would have success coming in here cuz we know how popular e Sports is especially with wage. Just Brands and, you know, around the world and around the country and everything. I don't know if we thought we'd have the numbers we have right now this fast. But it's been very exciting to say the least. And every brand that we've talked to has been very excited about the partnership which is great. You know, just like you know partnership like jlab there. I think I've talked to them almost every day or every other day about how long they are which is really exciting. You know for us because we want to work with Brands. I want to work with us and let's see the value in Esports and what have been you can bring to their brand. And so far, we've been very like I said, we've been very successful and we thought we got a couple, we can't wait to announce. We're actually itching to announce them, just waiting for them to be finalized. I'm not sure if you've seen it, but like, you can go to our website e Sports Stadium. We have a partner p, a media page. We do video press releases. It's, we try to take that next step. So that's awesome. Exciting times, man. I'm excited for you, guys.

You know, I'm literally twenty minutes away from it and it's a great venue to go ahead. If honestly, honestly, if nobody's been to the venue, that go visit at the gaming center is pretty cool. Pretty cool. It's all great stuff. I would highly suggest people go visit it, and then kind of see what they've got going on. But returns to land is a big deal, right? Obviously, yes, you got committee determines happening all around town. Now, you have a homestand of it for the Dallas fuel, just fans and then the players and now you got me to exit stage. Five, major you have more stuff in the work. I mean, how are you guys pulling off these major events and in working with these great Partners? How you guys managing to pull that off, man? I mean extreme credit to our c r o g. No lie.

Tui Sports Stadium Arlington. And we're seeing that they are.

Just, you know, we have a bunch of other events that we haven't announced yet that are going to be here as well, so it's there's no reason why at our mind.

"Convinced a disease to jump from one organism to another organism bypassing and the american scientists for instance a guy named mark lips at harvard and david elon and and stanford said. This is nuts. You're taking a disease. And you're making it worse and you're making it more likely to infect human beings through respiratory route and that became an so there was this phrase that they grew up Over the past eight years ten years which is gain of function research and the gain of function that they're talking about very specifically is to enhance the transmissibility and pathogenicity of a disease through the human breathing. Apparatus or mammalian breathing apparatus. So that's what but we're talking about is. Is it a good idea to do that. Not because you want to kill people but because you wanna prove that a certain virus could with a few mutations in fact human beings so it was a it was a part of it was preventive medicine but it was preventive medicine. That was taking this risk at least as well as what the scientists said and there were. I am a hundred fifty of them. I think who said don't make diseases worse. And so the obama administration said okay. We'll look at that and they paused the funding of gain of function research. Except that some of it was grandfathered in unfortunately and then It was resumed in the trump administration by the nih and went forward. It is now being funded again. So a lot of people said that's a bad idea. The mechanisms of the risk reward studies have not been done and I think that some people thought in their secret recesses of their mind was this gigantic. Sort of meta experiment. Something that led to this disease. We can do crazy risky things. We can't we will How will have ninety days in which we might be finding out a lot more from the a biden administration about this very question in the meantime you should be reading.

"In Arlington, Texas. I'm your host, Gary Leland, the Bitcoin Boomer. This segment. We're going to break down. What big point is to start going a little bit deeper into it. You now know that I like Bitcoin. You know who I am? And you know my personal history and Bitcoin, But I do want to give you one more thing before we get into that. If you have any questions you'd like us to play on next week's show. Please send them to Gary Leland at gmail dot com. Very leland at gmail dot com. Similar questions. We'll try to answer him on next week's show. Maybe our third segment of each show will be questions from you. Now I want to get into a little bit deeper Thought as to Bitcoin what it is. And this is the information you really, really want to know. I believe you want to know what Bitcoin is? And everything about it many times When people asked what Bitcoin is, people will give you back. The answer that Bitcoin is a crypto currency occlude the currency. That's really terrible answer. If someone doesn't know what Bitcoin is that they probably don't know what a crypto currency is, either. I would assume Answer your question with an answer that most people don't understand. Not really answering the question it all. So let's start the answer this question by going the Wikipedia Have you searched Bitcoin and Wikipedia says that Bitcoin is the world's first Cryptocurrency, a form of electronic cash sent peer to peer without a need for financial intermediaries. It's the first decentralized digital currency. I see they used crypto and their definition. They even used the term peer to peer. Now, if you're a techie, that definition may make some sense to you. But Wikipedia's answer, maybe still a little too complicated. For the average person or the average boomer toe understand the least ways. Maybe we should start with the basics and answer a question. That may be a little bit easier to explain. I think we need to say what is money? Everyone uses money. Everyone has some money. But what exactly is money? Money is really just part of a system that has been put in place to help with exchanging products and services. If I give you something of value, you may give me some money in return. Then I can take the money You gave me and exchange it for another product or another service or something else I want or need. Throughout history. Many different things have served this money, almost everything from seashells the arrowheads to precious metals. Precious metals such as gold and silver have probably been used the most common items used for money over the centuries. The fact is gold and silver are rare and in limited supply that helps it serve as a great store of value. Sometimes I really do have to question the entire limited supply thing, though. I mean, they've been mining gold like forever and they still haven't run out of it. In fact, they seem to keep finding more and more and more, and they haven't even started mining on the oceans that I hear. They're going to start.
