Forest vs. Highway: The Eternal Canadian Battle
"You explain them. Exactly what the conservatives are trying to do and how it would impact the green belt so the conservatives in ontario want to do. Is they want to build this highway. Which is about sixty kilometers The idea is that it would kick starts which they say we need given the economic fallout of covid nineteen and that it would also like help with those congestion issues. We're talking about the problem. Is the route runs through the greenbelt and it runs through a lot of other protected areas as well. we're talking like wetlands endangered species habitat in you know in the light of twenty twenty one. I think people people have questions about whether that's the best thing to do the other reason. This is controversial because this project was actually shelved by the previous liberal government. They studied this thing for years and years and years. What they found is that it would probably save drivers on average like less than a minute. It would also cost at least six billion dollars. That's like a low estimate and that it could have a really really difficult impact on the environment so when the progressive conservative survived. This idea which they did in twenty teen there was. There was a bit of you i think. Tell me about that. Pushback i mean for people outside of ontario And maybe even outside of toronto in the green belt area. Maybe they don't understand how bitter this fight has been better is a really good word for it. So at first the conservatives revived this idea in two thousand eighteen. Soon after they're elected they also kind of save. They want to review the environmental assessment for the highway which is like a boring word but the environmental assessment is really important because that lets the government see what the impact on the environment is going to be and it will also help them mitigate any issues so they announced that they want to streamline that and possibly start working on some early things like new bridges before that assessment is even done. There's a bit of immediate pushback from environmentalists. But it's also quiet. I wrote about it a little bit last year in the summer when the government finally announced the final route but even then it was really just environmentalists. Who were upset about it. I think The communities along route were probably supportive of that. There wasn't really a broad public pushback and then in early twenty twenty one something just clicked and it's hard to put a finger on exactly what it was

Dogecoin’s Value Is Soaring. Is It Time to Take It Seriously?
"Another day another doj coin. We can't help but mention this going back ever so slightly today. If you put a thousand dollars in doj coin on january first of this year right now on may six it would be worth one hundred and twenty thousand dollars the nights i was thinking about it in light of what we used to say about market for stocks when they look high. And we'd say you know on any given day when a certain number of shares changed hands and that it if you multiply the the all the outstanding shares by that price you get to that market cap but if everybody's sets decided to sell. I just don't think it's really there and that's kind of what i think about doj point i. It's that many that's at least my explanation for how it can be eighty billion dollars. Maybe really not eighty billion dollars. That's where it is on any given day. That's a demand that's the leaning meeting could vaporize overnight.

They had no regrets that they had the middle finger. One two okay. I see what he hit giving the middle finger at the establishment and that that made it. So that's all part of it and then you gotta deal on. Musk so i also make way you can't buy. You can't buy all of the doj coin altogether at a premium. Nobody's doing that. Unlike a company and one of the reason why you care about market cap is because extensively somebody could buy the whole company. Yeah premium that can't happen it doesn't it doesn't work that way

It's like getting into the ring and getting punched in the face for the first time but the cool thing is like you know some of them. They rolled with it. They're like oh people don't like that. I'll try five other things and they still succeed but the interesting thing was how common it was for people who had never failed in their entire lives. You know some mix of privilege but also frankly just everything was rolled out on a silver gold. Platter for them right. That's like always the top school. The boarding schools like the golden resume. And then they would hit a startup problem and then they like they would cry in office. Hours does like sort of shocked at that. Actually so yeah. It was interesting. It is very important to have a lot more fringe. Diversity and startup founders. And so i think that's something that investors can probably honestly do better at right like here's this capitalist system that like allocates capital two people who come from standard sort of central casting and yet some of the most interesting the weirdest and the best startups come from people who they're just very different will the patriots guidon abilene. Other company was musician. Yeah and then. I guess i'm through a combinator initialized capital. What ideas in the pitches really aren't outliers. That have become rapidly. Grew just with those experiences. Were like story. Seen as people i mean. The other interesting thing is like how accidental some of these things were. The soil and story is kind of hilarious.

There's some uptick here and Oh wow, look at this company called Google is brought up this other operating that can power practically any hardware phone called android and people, and and as late as twenty eleven, you're seeing them, you know kind of still pushing back and not really committing to where the smartphone market had gone, and if you actually watch the market share for operating systems Chris you're forty percent market share in two thousand seven for blackberry was down to about one percent by two thousand eleven. And Apple and Google had gone to about forty percent a piece. So but they just refuse to see what was in front of them similar to I. Think what at and T. management refuse to see what was in front of them, and so they refuse to acknowledge the court cutting and people stepping away from Linear TV was real here in our house you know we're watching Netflix.

Gassing they're throwing their mistake over back over the side for probably a third of what they pay for it and I should point out. John Sankey who's the CEO at eighteen t he just got their Randal Stevenson the former CEO was the one who pulled the deal on this so I think tank is is probably just looking to recover whatever amount of cash he can, and yet I think it I think it says something about the state of at and T.'s management across the board that. I don't know if you saw this up pivotal research just an analyst firm put out a report today about net flicks. Increasing the.

"Santi willing to the PODCAST. Wow. How about that between the browns and the cowboys yesterday at one point Cleveland Twenty seven point lead another Miracle Dallas Rally fell short. They got to within three but couldn't hold on John Jay, will Zubin presented by progressive insurance all of our guests on the Shell Pennzoil performance line if you're into the NBA, and you think we got a final series you're watching. Jay last night we'll talk NBA with Tim Legler in just ten minutes he and all of our guests on the Shell Pennzoil performance guys yesterday. Technically, the browns were the road team but Baker Mayfield did win the big twelve championship in Oklahoma in that Stadium Odell. Beckham. Junior came to that stadium once a year with the giants to play the cowboys and key both of those dudes on the road. Looked at home they bought out in that a lot of their credit from an offensive standpoint goes to the head coach offensive play caller and Kevin Stefanski. Took a lot of the same things principles that they had in Minnesota in employ them into that offense Beckham Woodland jury were Kareem Hunt replacing, shove I mean. They look like a football team. They didn't look like week one against the Baltimore Ravens each week the Cleveland Browns have gotten better and better and better. The offense dialing things up different showing different formations in different looks to a defense in Dallas cowboys that looked like they were out of sync and didn't know what the Hell is going on I. Think when you look at the Cleveland browns though you've got to say. To yourself at sitting at three and one, this is a totally different football team. Then we've seen in the last fifteen, twenty years I mean it's not even close. He understands who is play makers or if you think about it, he had to wire receivers in Minnesota in Stefan digs in feeling he had tied in and Rudolf, right and then he had a running back a Delvin Cook. So when you look at Kareem Hunt. Landry a OB J you look at all those sorts of things and you look at Baker Mayfield he's not asking Baker Mayfield to throw the ball fifty times like the old head coach in in Freddie Kitchens or even Hugh Jackson was doing he's allowing Baker Mayfield to just run the team be safe. Don't turn the ball over in allow those guys to win the game for you and look what's happening there three and one. It's seriously every time I watch the cowboys play as soon as the game is over. It's like I grabbed my remote, grab my phone and go directly to Stephen a Smith just to see what kind of a joke he's GonNa do on the cowboys. It's like they're the team we thought they would be again like it just it seems so consistent and I will. Say This, demarcus Lawrence made that statement yesterday we're soft. He got quote right third game in a row they're giving up thirty eight points or more key thirty eight points or more like not having Nick Charles. Got You only six carries. So think about this they still had three, hundred, seventy, three, hundred, seventy yards rushing forty carries without Nick Saban the game now I'm. I'm a little surprised at the defense is playing this way because I honestly thought that Mike Nolan when they made the higher defense like Oh that's cool. He's a pretty good. DC. Former head coach former here code pretty good DC along with Mike McCarthy former. Super Bowl winning head coach Oh they got good staff they put together here but I forgot. It last time He. Was Back in two, thousand, thirteen, two, thousand, fourteen what had happened with? That's a long ways from today's NFL even though he's probably at home studying the tape trying to get back in it when his live bullets go to fly in and you out there and you have to make those adjustments to the new way of NFL. Since you left is clearly it's hard for him and and and maybe the next game or the next game after that, he'll get it and make some adjustments but right now. Not, so good we are presented by progressive insurance protecting your business with specialized coverages for your commercial vehicles more progressive commercial dot com. We want you to hit us up on the Dr Pepper twitter feed at key Jay Z and essentially ask us the question key is answered at Jay's answer. They both have different responses who did you learn more about yesterday the browns or the cowboys early returns on the twitter feed fifty-one percent cowboys it's now been bumped up to fifty three percent. Don't worry. There are a little more about themselves next game because they're pulling my giants. Bounceback. Week fifty, three percent including Xerox seventy had some really good comments. He hit us up on the Dr Pepper twitter feed quote the browns grew up yesterday they got a huge lead on the road there was not sharp. They went through a serious momentum change in the fourth quarter they did not panic and learn how to win on the road. Good points. You can vote now again, key Jay Z. Right now with fifty three percent of precincts. No, that's next month with fifty three percent of precincts reporting. The edge is minimal. You really believe key the answer is straight and clear. It's Cleveland. You're agreeing here with our on the twitter feed. Xerox it's clearly we already know what the cowboys have been given us Stephen as been going at the cowboys pretty much every single week in the Mo- their heartbreakers, right the moment that you dive in with the cowboys they break your heart every single year no matter. What the. They got Zeke all they got CD layer all they got more cooper. Wow Man they going to be rolling. Nassau good now offensive numbers. Yeah. But they're trailing their behind all. They got all day and they got Lawrence they got this. Do that do oh, my God they getting ready decide Earl Thomas I'm telling you they want the top five teams in the NFC. And you try to support him because you like them like me I try to I'm I'm trying to look for all the right positive things in every single time. I. Just Like to series talent is stupid. I will say this though wasn't only like a week and a half ago. Everybody's talking about it's time to think about ob jade trade him right you're not talking that way now are you know you're not talking that way now between him and Jarvis Landry that what they have there has a chance to be special. I think I think more about the trade is more not not not as people get it wrong. They will hold trading because they had this argument the other day with somebody you body. They tried to tell me about his attitude like all these guy just said, well, what is he doing? you said, no, the problem is, is you paying attention to the damn media and they make you think that he such a problem then the guy with it to some other like but that has nothing to do with his ability on the field. If you get him the ball, he's one of the best receivers in a game. With somebody at a random location how how happened? So we watch it. We were watching football up to the asked about the giants and what they need and when it was in New York. So obviously, it became oh bj conversation and he didn't like it and you know we got into a conversation. He could really like most people can't say why they don't like somebody just don't like you got me on that when we first started talking about as well Bj, probably like well what problems and then we actually start going through it and I started to think I was like you know what can you hear this? When you're vice what you're right aired views and what did I say at the beginning? Yeah you can trade him. If you don't know what to do with, you could trade somebody will take him. If you don't think that this team is moving in the right direction the guess get something for him and get the value I didn't say he was a football player i. Say it was a problem nothing. I just say based on the numbers the thirty million dollars tied up two receivers. One of them has more value Nia in that will be oh bj. If you WANNA move him moving but clearly, they had a plan in place to make sure that he was utilized and being a part of their office again, people just say stuff almost curse. Right every day they just say something like, oh, he's his hair is blonde don't like him. It's like dude is good man. He's one of the top with the ballers end area and he sold it yesterday. That's why I came on. The organization these stopped making moves, keep them stay with him double down on him. Well, see what happens what happens to Jay we'll much like a basketball is coaches. Want. To. Work. They don't want to manage that situation when he was with the giants, they don't want to manage that that debt became too hard for them and so when you look at the Cleveland situation, they got off to a clunky start. He didn't get the footballs. So then as he started to contribute, they started winning tribute a little bit more to go up to cowboys they blow them out contributed a little bit more. Now you see his value win the coaches go back in and they watched the film today in a game plan for next week they know. He's an important part. We've gotta get him the ball in any situation because not only is he happy the rest of the team?.

"Do you remember the first words when when you first meek as well because he's walking towards allegheny. Let's get the fuck Outta here. I mean we really I mean I just been with three three hours later. I mean he was the whole thing was crazy. He didn't even know he was like I was trying to call him on the phone he's on TV that he was being released from prison. And then the judge didn't want to let them out she wouldn't sign the paperwork and so we're like I basically said to ten lers you go down to the courthouse. You do not leave. Make they'll have to arrest you if they don't let him out today. You stand the courthouse and demand to get this paper sine so finally the judge signed the paper and just kind of gave up fucking amazing what I love. That's really special. You guys are doing is you. Just is something I think. In December with the kids that were affected. Yeah it it was. It was pretty cool. So one of the things that meek and I was talking about this. There's so many kids that have their parents that a currently car serrated or previous La Carte incarcerate for technical violation relation. And that's why we're we're trying to change people going to prison for not committing a crime. That's the thing that's so wrong you know to me. I always thought I don't know what you guys I thought if you go to prison you going because you committed a crime minded people and Kristen for not committing crimes. There's today twenty five percent of people go to prison. Each you go to prison for no communication for technical violations. That's what we need to eliminate that means that because they don't have enough money to the most common things by the way we're the country so smoked weed number one test positive for smoking weed. Number TWO IS MR probation appointment and number three. I couldn't afford to pay my fines number. Three's probably biggest one right. Those three or eighty percent. Yeah and in those cases you know by the way someone has a job. They don't WANNA lose their job so they don't go i. I lose my job and I can't afford to pay for my family or go to the public. So it's like the kind of stock and so this is what happens every day and so basically meek and I talked about this. He said we gotta do something special special for kids that currently parents currently for technical violation or have been incarcerated in the past for technical violations so we found fifty kids we actually bust them out of the NBA store store New York City. We game all shopping spree. They met The owner of the Brooklyn Nets. They met a couple players from the Brooklyn Nets. Dj Cowed Meek. We then Robert Kraft sent the Patriots team. The plan this the the same plane that the players fly on put all the kids in the plane. We took him to the Patriots game and It was an incredible experience. The kids had daily life that the they're never forget. I think these kids not only do they have an incredible day. They saw what was possible and we opened the rise to you. Know what you deserve better than this and you can get yourself out of the situation and it was you. Yeah for me. I actually left on vacation with my family. Took my mom and my sisters in the husband's at kids to The Caribbean the day before I actually trump my family up. I didn't I wanNA tell him. I had to go back to New York second. I drop them off. I dropped him off and then I went home. Barack came back to New York and Boston the next day for me. It was such a rewarding day to see these kids the smiles they had. And how how you know how much we really impact the lives. So is it safe to say that Make Mill is not sending you a bill when he has to perform a fanatics party is it was performed at one but now he would definitely here. You're not talking prison. Listen if I tried to pay would never take the money because I was curious. I one thing I always wanted to know is meek mill charges Ruben. He it last year he headlined with Cardi B. and actually because to me I always compartmentalized. What I did was all personal? Because he's he's like a brother to me person. I had nothing to do with. Phoenix actually tried to pay me. Look like Michael Michael. Don't ever ask to pay me. He was like he was mad at me from asking. I'm like it's the company. It's nothing like Michael of ever tried. Pay Me again. I'll kill you gamble by the way. I'm gamble a few hours of Taylor. I do remember. Actually the reason I I found out who you are obviously like I saw a clip on line of meek mill I think was meek mill and Michael Michael Rubin Bet I think he threw the ball. was that make the yes. So how was that so there was a basketball. Probably well. There's a little there's a little background Akwesasne Joel. EMBIID was at my house and he basically with with one hand did a backwards shot and I shot made a half court backwards with one hand and so I saw this on like like how did he like. If I if I did this a thousand times I would never make it literally. Half Court wanted hand backwards. I shot so I went out that night and I was with my girlfriend. I'm like you gotTa take this and I basically start trying to make the shot and literally after like twenty only shot. She made it. which was maybe a miracle for me? I think if you gave me the ex very athletic. I've senior dance. It's my best. Go says my athletic abilities. I mean I literally could be at least person actually not even the nights in the entire world I'm like I was not given coordination so actually made the shot up to twenty shots and he thought it was the Great Fluke. So Meek saw a AH I could make that shot a second. So I'm like okay. I'll bet what he wanted. I'll bet fifty grand and and of course we had twenty five shots. He made twenty two or twenty three so the battle is fifty thousand dollars. He's twenty five shots to make it back and he made like twenty two or twenty three by the way. We'll try as well. He'd never made it by hand and unpacking do that. I think he'd do half court back with shot we. How many shots would you like? Twenty would you like the best to be well. I don't have a lot of money but we put up one hundred dollars up and I think it's if she makes it she gets five grand done done all right five a half court shot all right. She gets twenty shots twenty backwards county bucks to five grand must have done deal. What was meeks bet? Makes his fifty straight up like yeah. That's fucking horrible. Bet The odds are extremely unlikely against to make well. He was much more confident. His athletic abilities workout right. I mean twenty five five. You'd think he'd have a feel for it now but still it doesn't make sense. You know like our flatbed for odds you know true or false the Brigada in Atlantic city. You won the most amount of money playing blackjack in the history of Atlantic City in one day does not currently we are fucking research pretty close so right there might Donovan Day. Back in the day had good win. That could have been beat since then. All right you out. Do you like to discuss numbers. What was the what was I? Don't know what's going.

"So you what was he charged with initially so when he was nineteen he was charged for pointing a gun at multiple police officers and then he told me that I remember this like it. It was yesterday told me when we were sitting the basketball court. I would just ask them questions. He was asking me questions like. Yeah you know when I was nineteen years old. I was charged for pointing a gun a multiple police officers. He said but if you put multiple police officers that's called suicide jobs to shoot and kill you. That would be they wouldn't be doing their job. Didn't shoot and kill you and you know no shots were fired. I didn't put a gun. Police officers so the whole thing is a lie why I was like me. I don't care like this point. Twenty seven twenty six ten years ago like he's like Michael. I promise you identity told me that over the next three or four years. He probably told me that a hundred times but I never thought about it once it got sent to prison and myself Jason. Rock Nation Desert Fraz hired dozens of investigators gators We were first looking into the judge because he had you know well. The system is funnel had broken. He had this awful judge and we refresh. Look into the judge. And we're spending months looking at all these issues with her. She edged discharge. It sued thirty-three people individually not as a judge but individuals really the person we found all kinds problems. The judge makeup Saint Michael. I know because you sat in the courtroom obsessed with this judge. I never did what I charge for. You GotTa like you've got to look into the set of charges. The first police officer that the investigators meet with so yeah he never putting on the holdings ally. No one ever asked me with what anybody I'm at the Eagles Patriots Super Bowl. It's February basic two years ago. Exactly right now I call because I got great news. We just met this police officer. WHO said that that he was there? He was one of the two officers. Union point the gun the whole thing. He signed an affidavit. Your jail in a couple of days. It took US another three months to get him out of prison even though he didn't do what he was originally charged up and so he went to jail originally for for about ten months and then he got sent back to prison four different times from multiple years collectively for never committed a crime. One time he did a concert in Cherry Hill without the proper authorization relation to do the concert he got sent to jail for ninety days. One time use used a water pistol in a music video and he got sent to prison because they said was poor behavior but it was based off of the when he committed they just just because he was violating because he was still on probation. The judge basically put him in prison anytime she wanted. The judge Charles Life in the judge was like literally Kuku crazy and she basically wanted to run his life and when he didn't do exactly what she wanted to do with his professional career. She basically sent him impressed so she had it out for one hundred percents. I heard he was a troubled kid and he tried to turn turn it around but nobody ever gave him the benefit of the dots. Look I met him like I sent probably six years ago. He was when I met him. And I've met lots of people. Lots of people come through at the sixers games in in our business. You meet everybody you see you know great people okay. People Ban People from the day I met him he was Super Smart. well-spoken articulate thoughtful. If you ever put it start tapping a rapper. It wouldn't be what you would think this guy. was you know incredible from the day I met him. I never saw any trouble sign of him. He's always wrapping. Price saved his life giving an outlet. The crazy look. You certainly grew up in the most ruthless airing the planet but the thing that's crazy is the whole legal system today. America's got the worst most broken criminal justice system him in the planet. It essentially. We have five times. The rate of incarceration of the entire rest of the world. We have four and a half million people today on probation and parole. They should probably be a million people on Probation Karol so when when we got out of prison. Reform is raised over fifty million dollars myself Jay. Z. Robert Kraft Meek Dan Loeb Robert Smith. Mike like no regrets clarify Who just bought the Brooklyn Nets? Recently like Oscar species everybody we have a great crew. We put over fifty million dollars that is. We hired Van Jones to be the Sea of and we're focused on getting a million people out of the criminal justice system over the next five years and you mentioned desert Peres sharp she. She is a beast of all b-best. I met desert for the first time in this is crazy to desert was sitting next to it makes trial and when they put me in handcuffs. He's taking his watch often given as well to his mom. is basically start crying. Because I'd never seen anything like this before it makes tearing up and I looked at me and I said I'm not gonNA stop. I looked at him as mommy. Said I'M NOT GONNA stop until the prison and this woman looks she. She Goes Hi. I'm desiree I'm not gonNA stop until I got a prison she goes. Let's go. That was the first time that hurts them and desert I in the past two and a quarter years. There's probably there's been seven hundred days probably had two thousand phone calls you know. I talked to diarrhea every day. She's become you know an incredibly close friend of mine and I gotta tasting. There's nobody like a beast. She's a force nature superstar Super Smart Data. That you want to be with her you do not want to be. I'm scared of nobody. I would not want to be to fight with desert. What was the timeline from? When so he was put in prison to the day that he got out? You always put in prison November. Six two thousand seventeen okay. He Got April twenty. Four two thousand in eighteen. I remember that because that was the famous day where he told me this is. This is a funny story. He'd sending me so many times like Michael Keep Waking up with this dream aware. Because He'd flown with me on a helicopter so many times he kept saying you know a hundred times before you went to prison. So keep waking up where you're landing in the prison and picking me up in a helicopter and so in one of my strategies was to help get out of prison was kept taking really well known people in prison who then could come out and talk about the issue that that would help bring attention to it and by the way the last person we took the same before the storm until you was. Robert Kraft and Robert Kraft went in there we raw together On vacation and Turks and meek o'clock because I talked to me almost every day and Robert said you know I want to go see him and Robin saw him he was like he couldn't understand. I remember him looking at Miki's like how do you have such a good attitude like you've been imprisoned for five months you didn't commit mid crimes that I'd be so mad immediate. You know what I've been sent to prison three times before this forever community. This is my whole. I don't know any different you said but now everyone's fighting for me and so Robert went out and spoke and by the way it was incredibly impactful but so I went that day with Kevin Hart. WHO's a cabinet maker? You know grow up together. They're really good friends. And so Kevin I went to see make you. Kevin is trying to tell me this. Isn't that bad visit which trying to cheer him up. I'm like meek maybe get out of prison as like Michael like fuck you man like. I'm never getting out of this place on like you have a shitty attitude and tell them. Every week I get talking on the phone and the prisoner face to face to face an important craters for it or Montgomery it was Chester County prison got assume their cabinets Cavin Asleep one o'clock in the afternoon tonight. We're playing the heat. If we win the game we're GONNA win the series and go to the next you know level. The playoffs mix. Never getting out of here I leave one thirty Kevin. It goes out and speaks and gets a lot of good energy and literally. I mean my office at four o'clock and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ordered his release that day and so then you gotTa pick but the helicopter on the picket over the helicopter. He's an hour away so anyway everyone convinced me pick up with the helicopter. We picked it up in the helicopter in the parking lot. Right across the street from the prison. We flight at the sixers Chris Game. He goes into the stadium in his Gel close. No someone cuts. His hair. stylist comes in. He literally gets dressed. We got we won the game and beat the heat to go onto the next series and the the people just go crazy when they saw him at the game it was the most surreal by the number one. Most real thing I've ever lived through my entire life to go through the fight for five and a half months for you know one of your you. You know you're really close. Friends was imprisoned for no reason. Then they get out of prison and then they come to a close game of the playoffs and win the game rings the Bell. We win the Nice. Who is who was that more people get back to the land the helicopter? You don't see meek mill. WHO's in the helicopter with you? When you went my chief of staff has got sausage? It was one of meeks managers and one of his close. Got Kona and Actually Randomly Lester Holt. Team was doing a big story to help. Bring attention to this and so they were randomly in my office. Doing a story about meek in the situation and so they came with us as well. So you land on the roof or wherever you actually great. Quince Gegen shutouts my partner Josh Harrison. The sixers WHO's the manager of the sixers so we said to the prison prison. Hey we need to land helicopters this poison outland. Surely please feel like you're not landing the helicopter here and so somehow someone said. Oh Josh Hours owns the casino right across the street Like Flyer this deceitful. Literally Harass Casino. They said we call Josh Gal up for you to land and literally ten minutes later in the parking lot literally. It's one hundred feet from the prison to to their. There's thousands of people outside like you know fans going crazy. Don't go anywhere. Stay with us. We just need a minute okay. This is a thirty second commercial. And I'm going to throw a lot of.

It's actually a great story because my daughter WHO's in the sports business. She is not moved by anything and the one person that she loves seven years ago. It was making me nauseous. So meek was engaged to Nikki and and they were sitting next to us at the All Star game. My Dad that that that's Nikki. I'm like okay like who I didn't even know who was at that point because I've just had no clue and she's like just kind of gravitated in Nikki. Akiem like in Nikki seem fine so nicky my daughter in a long conversation beacon I start talking and turned out he was from Philly he was big sixers fan and right away he started asking me like tons of questions about the business but kind of like when we met just very curious asking good questions street smart and and you that's how we met and we became You know over time really good friends. And then I had the You know what was really life changing experience of sitting in court with him. You know we'd been friends you know three or four years already and make said to me. Hey can you come to. This hero may want you to see what happens. He said to me like what happens. When a person goes to court in America we used to always fight about this? Because I say look your. Life's great what he complain about. Your you know your a big rapper. You're killing it. Everything's going away. He wanted me to come to court with him so I went to court and I basically watched one of my closest friends who didn't commit a crime get sent to prison for two who to four years by the way and even sent to prison three times before that for not committing a crime for technical probation violations so he popped wheel motorcycle and the judge each other bill to send him to prison for that prison for two to four years and when that happened I just had this like outer body experience. Here's one of my really good friends who's getting sent to prison. Who I didn't do anything you know? Fortunately you know for for for me.

I say why that's the only money I have to fix my problems big problem. That's my life. Within within twenty four hours of the bankruptcy filing agents from Homeland Security raid the telex free headquarters. They seized hard drives that contain every transaction action made in the two years of the company's short life it is clear that the deception will soon be discovered and then Carlos is one dollar makes a move the very day that the agents searched offices Carlos Juan Zeller uh meets his daughter WHO's at a local mall he packs a bag hops in a car and has her drive him <unk> over the Canadian border to Montreal where the next day he gets on a plane Ria and he has not left Brazil cents in little more within two years one hundred seventy thousand people in the US join telex free and additional victims can be found in every corner nerve the globe there are seventeen thousand in Uganda close to three thousand in Afghanistan Twenty six thousand in Russia China more than Ninety Indy Thousand Bankruptcy Trustees Steve Dr. We had a number of farmers in the Dominican Republic who not only mortgage their our farms to participate but they pledged their future cops to participate in in this game and the only person in the US facing criminal charges as for all this damage is James Merrill his defense. He actually wanted the company to succeed. He tried to fix it but that doesn't fly with with the prosecutors who point to Meryl's Youtube appearances like these as evidence against him but James Merrill needed to do was walk out the door and he chose not to do that and at that moment is when he decided that he'd rather run a criminal enterprise and not tell anybody to criminal enterprise instead of simply leaving and so he pleads guilty to charges of wire fraud and sentenced to six years in prison he finally acknowledges knowledge is that free is a pyramid scheme in this case. Mr Merrill acknowledged that he was with Lee Blind directly in the in the face of obvious facts he wasn't paying attention to them and his friend cross one had a different idea about where this is going and to a large degree Carlson Zeller Used Jim Merrill to accomplish his goals through their attorneys. Both James Maryland Carlos ones the Klein interview requests from American greed at this point. One Zeller is still in Brazil well. He seems to be doing just fine. He's not in custody. It appears that he is under indictment in Brazil for running the telex free game so he will be prosecuted there but he appears to live in a high rise in Vitoria Brazil and just go about his business day to day but what ones Eller does not know is that federal agents in Brazil loosening to his phone calls from his conversations. US authorities learned that one's honored is sending currier to pick up money he has left in the US until homeland security investigations sets up a sting the hand off of the cash is to take place in a parking lot and and so it was on that night January fourth two thousand seventeen that they censor balance and they waited for a person to show so behold person shop at any red SUV and delivered a bag put in the trunk of the car along with undercover Asian of two point a two billion dollars shortly after the person delivering the cash is arrested Cleber Roshan who was once a promoter for telex for Brazil will now.

No you know with the potential criminal charges. Russia decides to stop helping Carlos one seller. He provides the address of the apartment where he says there is some cash but no one could imagine just how much when the Asia and searched the apartment they find a box spring mattress dubbed with money approximately twenty million dollars in cash and we thought that might be a million dollars out there air but staggering that theory that much cash out there but those millions of dollars do not belong to Carlos one Zeller Zeller. That money belongs to these people every few months the Chelsea collaborative holds a meeting to update the telex free victims. I'm Steven Dr. I'm the court appointed trustee. The bankruptcy trustee informs them that so far he is be covered one hundred sixty eight million dollars's it and then he is also going after the top recruiters who made off with the bulk of the money. We're trying to recover money from the winners. The people were took more money out than they put in but what concerns many in this room is not just the money they lost but also the people they brought into the scheme for that they placed blame on themselves as hard for me because you know man of the family in his higher to look at my wife. Dora in C- in our investment all the hard work what we did it goes to drain on the day that James Merola Merle sentenced gladys big represent his victims and get a chance to speak to him directly in basically looked at his face. You and I said you stole the dreams and the hopes of these people. You don't deserve six years or whatever whatever they're negotiating. You serve to be in jail for life I for me. It was one of more moments because because these people really really care about this company and they literally gave all they had and for the prosecutors the tax free fraud is one for the record books the success of the permits game and the speed with which it grew who took over the world is unlike any other fraud case.
