A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.

there's a 30 % chance you'll do that but what is the inverse of that there's one a 70 chance it will not happen and that really is why you want to and the question is why why does that happen happen and i think you need to be uh as consumers we all know what we need to do the how question do is i how do i alter change the outcomes that we want and that really is what i'm interested in because it doesn't need to be the way it is in the richest country in the world so as you share with us these ideas the living trust the revocable trust and the will everybody's always asking do i really need to go see somebody like receiving a guy or can i just get online and do the do -it -yourself version no you can do it do it there's nothing that you cannot do in america you remember it but many years ago at the in in antarctica there was a team that was out there and the guy fell ill the planes could not come and go out and he needed he some brain surgery and the doctors actually helped him do his own brain surgery or the people up there so there's nothing in america you cannot do if you are smart enough and you dedicate yourself doing it but here's the problem where is the education going to come from to get you to do what you think you need to do good point you'll be going down to google you'll be going down to online resources maybe you'll go down to traditional people like an insurance agent, a financial planner, a lawyer, a health insurance and here's the reason why traditional planning fails markets is not that difficult to go figure out as dedicated as we all are including me in the retirement planning space where do i get my education about what information to give to the clients from my industry as a lawyer the bar association helps create lots of education that educate me and i take that education to the consumer ask yourself this one honest question is there any industry that is going to dedicate putting resources and time and effort to come up with education that does not serve the financial needs of the industry before it serves your needs good point right that's really the reason why when you go to a financial planner everything is about how much money do you have and what products do you need to buy and we get spun up around i mean i do we in a tizzy we get spun up around hey how do i invest the money and which stock to buy and do i have the right portfolio and do i have i a 60 need a 40 40 split 60 or do split what what is the right way for me to invest and the honest truth of the matter is as you to five different financial planners it doesn't matter how many advertisements they're going to do you go to five different financial planners the the difference between the return you get from five of them is minuscule what is more important that the financial industry doesn't talk about that in the end is not the amount of money that you will have that will matter it's the use of the money kc ksm 80 million dollars glenn campbell 15 million dollars tim can we 50 million dollars what's common between all of them they all have dementia they all end up in some sort of a care facility none of them is able to live out their life at all your focus on the money part it of we can control it therefore we are attracted to the whole thing i can do something it's like sitting in a car if you're sitting on the highway it is going to be it feels like ours are running by but you can take side streets even though it may take you longer to get to the destination from side streets at least that's what life is all about we work on things that we feel we have some control over and when people tell us so you should invest this way that way you know we think okay we are doing something about the whole thing and industry makes money by investing therefore they egg you on oh you just need to think about it all you need is lots of money to have a good retirement and in the end when you take a look at the reality when 80 million dollars was not enough kck for some billions of dollars was not enough for brooke aster billions of dollars why is your estate much smaller than theirs going to do a better job just if you're going to focus on investing and the issue is not how much money you have is what insurance do you have that the day you fall ill your children your agents will know how to use your money so your life is what you want it to be not what a discharged says the hospital is going to make it to be and this is not education you're going to get professionals this is talking something you to have you to about figure it out and you only figure this out after you fall ill when it is already too late Casey Kasem didn't plan on getting sick Rajeev, Glenn Campbell what a guy would a performer he didn't plan it, Tim Conway all the laughs he brought us a Carol Burnett show so they had these fortunes it came down to family you even said with Casey Kasem you got involved with a daughter Carrie she was seeking help it became a family war Casey Kasem died in a hospital in Port Orchard never a penny for him to enjoy and the families are like okay well what's comfy here there and everywhere and then meanwhile there's a fortune and the family splits it well yeah and in the end the amount of money didn't matter Casey Kasem I think you know we mistake you know Mark we live in a society where we get bombarded with a lot of information and few of us to want do the hard work and then and the hard work really is educating ourselves we are hard working society we work work really hard you you get up at what two o 'clock in the morning yep and then you're up here in the station you're working and then when you you go back home I mean how much time do you how much energy is left in you to pull it all together so we go down and looking for the and answers we find industry created answers that serves the need of the industry than you and he exists that's in where the space to go ahead and say reject those answers those answers four point one trillion dollars is what we spend on financial planning four point one trillion dollars every year is spent on financial planning and the best that the industry can give us is a thirty percent chance that our life is going to turn out the way that we want it to turn out wow where the problem is oh man the stuff we share the stuff you hear every

"Books about how great they were. Like, here's how great I am, how I made a billion dollars or whatever. So I decided to do the opposite, like an anti -self -help book to show you that, you know, you can also be successful when screwing up a whole bunch of stuff in your life so that you don't get down and out when, you know, someone kneecaps you. But Paula's like, I think you're making a mistake. She said, I think it's a pretty good book on leadership and how you dust off and get you back up. So I happen to agree with her. So because I read through it again, I'm like, I guess she's right. I think there's some good stuff in there about how to dust off and recover from your mistakes, of which mine were many.

Ask a Hairstylist: How to Ace Your Hair Consultations for Happy Clients
"Are listening to the All New Hair Radio Morning Show. I'm Carrie Hines with an all new segment of of Ask a Hair Stylist and today we have our two great hairstylist friends and they're really part of the family here at the Hair Radio Morning Show. You guys know Siobhan to see her. She is the the charge behind Roots Rock Salon out in West Orange, New Jersey, which has just done fantastic things. You guys see the commercial right here. And of course, Keisha McAllister all the way and you have such a great name that just runs Keisha McAllister, just nice to say all the way out in California and talking about Fairfield, California up north. And so it's great to have you guys. You literally have the country between you and real excited. What I love about this is that, because I often thought, I said, well, maybe, you know, things might be a little different as you kind of, you know, regionally, but you guys, you know, I appreciate your feedback this morning. It really kind of drives it on home. Real quick, I have one more that was, let's see, so I think it's your turn, Keisha, on this. Now it's, let's see, a new hairstylist. Her name is Tina. Tina is her name from Boston. Tina from Boston. She writes, she's a new hairstylist and she loves the hair radio. Of course you do. Thank you. And she says that what should, okay, so she wants to know any advice on doing consultations with her prospective clients. Anything you want to share that you can pass along to Tina, who's just starting her career out in Boston, Massachusetts. So, Keisha, do you want to take that? Okay. Well, Tina, welcome to the hair world. It's going to be lots of hours on your feet. You have to love it. Yeah, you have to love it. But when it comes to a consultation and prospective clients, I don't take a client without a consultation. Because not only am I trying to feel that we're going to, you know, our energy's out, but I'm also trying to figure out what this person has been doing with her hair, with their hair, or what their expectation is. I'm finding out if they're on any medications, you know, if they have some sort of, it's just so many things that we need to know. And then also do like a little liability, you know, form to say, you know, if something happens, especially if they have medical issues, because that will change the way your hair even takes shampoo sometimes. So we have to be mindful of how we work behind the bowl. So I would tell her to ask as many questions as possible because there's no stupid question, even if you ask it over and over again, because people have different definitions for the way we speak. You know, they might say, well, and I might say a pit. You know what I mean? It's different the way we communicate in the form or just sitting down and talking to the person. It would really help with that. Yeah, I agree. I think that it seems to me, and we started to do things a little differently over the course of time with regards to these consultations with the infusion of the internet and video conferencing and all of that. So technology on one hand could have helped, but it could have also exacerbated it in a sense of, you know, by losing that personal touch. But Siobhan, to see you now, out at your shop, so out on the East Coast now, over at your shop, your Roots Rocks Salon, Siobhan, how do you kind of, you know, well, let me just ask you, would you offer any other advice to this young lady who's just really getting on her way in Boston? Honestly, consultation is almost just like the foundation of a house. You know, you don't want, you know, you got to get the information. If someone comes to you and says they want a house built, you don't know what kind of house it is. They want. So you got to gather up that information. So the consultation, I think, is most of having a successful service. Yeah. So if you're bypassing the consultation, there's a high probability that you won't be pleased with the end result.

Today's show, we're going to be talking about five types of evidence that can be used when filing a claim. Wow. Okay. Well, I got to let the surprise out of the bag. Of course, we have one of our favorite guest stars, so drop in from time to time right here on the Vet Talk Radio Show. You guys know her.

Good morning. Great to have you. Thank you so much. Yes, absolutely. And I want to kind of jump on in. Now this, Michael Hopkins, is a very interesting topic. You know, I really have to say so again, kind of like different types of evidence, if you will. Oh, very much so, Carrie. And some of them are going to be surprising to a lot of veterans. Talk about surprises today. Yes. Well, I am so excited and can't wait to hear this information from you, Michael. So if you would, kick it off and let us know, what is number five? Well, Nicole Marie, Carrie Hines, number five, we're going to be talking about the DD -214 or any other type of separation document that a veteran receives when they leave the military. When you leave the military, and these documents are so very important. And you know why, guys? They're so important. Why? There is so much information on these documents that can help you with a claim. Perfect examples. The documents, the DD -214 or any separation paperwork, it tells you when you came in the military and tells you when you left. So if you're trying to file a claim and you need evidence to show you were in a certain place at a certain time, guess what? You got dates. It tells you where you were. You don't have to remember. It tells you on the DD -214 will tell you where you were, the exact country you were in, dates you were there, name of the campaign. Sometimes, well, most of the time on your DD -214, it has the ribbons that you wore. If you were authorized ribbons, you were in campaigns, you were in battles, all of that stuff is there. And you can use that when you go to file. You can also use things such as your character of service. Your character of service basically tells the world how you were discharged out of the military. If you were discharged honorably out of the military, there it is right there. The whole world knows. So when you need evidence to show that you were honorably discharged out of the military, there it is. Last rank held. Addresses. Where you lived. There's so much good information on a DD -214 or its equivalent. So much good information on there.

Nikki Haley's Worst Kept Secret in D.C.
"Was the clear winner last night. I also think another winner was Nikki Haley. Nikki Haley won last night because Nikki Haley didn't lose. Nikki Haley's not running to be president. Let's just please stop the nonsense. Nikki Haley's running to be vice president. Everybody knows it. Nikki Haley knows it. It's the worst kept secret D in .C., OK? Nikki Haley is not running to be president. Donald Trump wants a woman to help with him suburban female voters. Everybody knows it. It's probably going to be Kristi Noem, or it's going to be Nikki or possibly Carrie Lee. But I think it's most likely going to be Haley or Kristi Noem. Could be Elise Stefanik. Everybody's the worst kept secret in D .C. Nikki Haley's running to be vice president, OK? Nikki Haley last night, she didn't lose. She didn't surprise anybody, but she didn't lose
A highlight from FULL INTERVIEW - Kari Lake, Former Republican Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate
"To those who visit Mickey D's for their favorite breakfast item and then go somewhere else for coffee, give this Mickey D's brew a second chance. The glow up was real. Try any size iced coffee brewed with 100 % Arabica beans for just 99 cents until 11 a .m. and pair it with a savory Sausage McMuffin with Egg for $2 .79. Prices and participation may vary, cannot be combined with any other offer. I swear, I just read an article at NBCNews .com that's trying to debunk the video that everybody saw of Biden falling asleep yesterday in Hawaii. Honest to goodness, these people, one will lie and the other will swear to it. The great Carrie Lake is with us again, of course, former Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate. She's in Milwaukee. She is there. She has landed. Carrie, it's great to have you again on the show. It's been too long. How are you? I'm doing great, Mike. You know, you just read that headline and another day the media doing cover for for Joe Biden and this craziness, what we're going through and we're here in Milwaukee to try to counter that. Well, I'm glad you're there. And because, you know, you sent the warning cry out to me, the bigger story than tonight's debate. And I know the political world is watching, but watching the 45th president of the United States processed be in a dank Fulton County jail tomorrow is so sick and is so twisted and is so wrong. To me, that overshadows anything that could be happening at tonight's debate. And you have already sent the warning cry out. And I think you're right that goofy Katie Hobbs and Arizona, they might file charges against Trump as well.

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/22/23
"Back to the mid -80s. Everybody wants to rule the world, little tears for fears. Half of that outfit, Roland Orzeball, is 62 today. This is a theme from the Dennis Miller talk show, I believe, on HBO. Everybody wants to rule the world. I don't remember that. I don't remember the Dennis Miller show, really, on HBO. He had an HBO show. There was a Dennis Miller window there. I loved his stand -up. He was so self -aware about his crazy overuse of vocabulary. I think he had a book or a special called Citizen Arcane, with a reference to his over -the -top scholarly references that even if you only got 80 percent of them, you were still well -served. He had a radio show for a while, you remember the Dennis Miller show? Of course I do. With Westwood One. And then he was on, didn't he have a stint as an NFL announcer, of all things? That was a dumb idea. Quite the Renaissance man. Quite the Renaissance man. No, I love the guy. Love him. Hey, listen, first of all, who is on the debate stage tomorrow night, and who's not? I told you, Asa Hutchinson, except he's not going to be on the debate stage. I thought, well, yes, he is, and I don't want to argue with you. And then Larry was for 10 minutes, or he actually wasn't. Larry thought he was for 10 minutes, and then had to take that one back. That's a shame. So it looks like he's not there. He didn't make it, because Seb Gorka announced last night he's there. And then Carrie Lake, who I'm going to interview, I think, tomorrow as a preview of the debate. Carrie Lake said, I just talked to Larry Elder, and he said the RNC is refusing to allow Larry to be on the stage, even though he's met the donor threshold, he's in 1 percent in three polls, but the RNC, one of the polls is a Trump -affiliated poll, I guess. What does that mean? I think they need all of the polls to be like Gallup and Reuters and NBC, which may have their own biases, obviously. There may be no such thing as an objective poll, but there may be a bit of a blackout rule for any poll that is specifically tied to a candidate. The debate stage is better with Larry on it. It's a waste of time with Asa Hutchinson on it, but it looks like that's what you got. But Doug Burgum is there. So listen, we're all right there. At least he's there. I'm hanging on. I'm going to be hanging on to his every word. Every word from Doug. It's terrifying. Not that he gets Doug Burgum. He seems like a good dude, a good governor, but just why, why, why, why? Well, let me prepare everybody for tomorrow night. Let me warn you, because I just thought about this, and it's absolutely going to be true. You know why the debate is going to be so maddening for us? They're going to bag on Trump and there ain't nobody to defend him. There is no, there will not be any counter. They'll be able to lie about him. They'll say things, I guarantee you, and it's going to make us all crazy. They're going to say he incited the insurrection. They're going to say... Who will do that? Chris Christie, but anybody else? Well, but when Chris Christie says it, there won't be any counter to that. Nobody's going to refute the anti -Trump narrative at all.
Dr. Prenik James Talks Traction Alopecia and How to Prevent It!
"Delve into this wonderful world of trichology. You see a lot of folks who have in their experience hair loss, but let's flip it. What do you think, what is the most common type of issue that you treat there in your shop in the way of hair loss? That's a great question, Carrie. There are so many different variations of different conditions that I treat. For the most part, I find that a lot of women are coming into the clinic with traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is just one of the different variations of alopecia. There are so many, but what traction alopecia is is when the client has or the actual stylist who rendered the service has caused trauma to the hair follicle, and in some instances it can be reversed if it's caught early enough or they're seeing the early signs. However, if they wait too long, then the follicles can become dormant, whereas it's not reversible. So that is the main type of alopecia. Yeah, that's the number one, and then I'm seeing androgenetic alopecia where it's from the genetics, it's hereditary, and then I'm seeing a lot of solar egg dermatitis, wherein that can also lead, you know, to hair loss or standing around the hairline if it's not treated. So again, there's so many different variations, but pretty much those are the most, those are the number one types that I'm seeing. Okay, well and talking about it a bit, especially the traction alopecia, is that the one that's identified most with, like, the tight braids and the pulling from the scalp for the tight ponytail type things. Tell us a little bit, what are some of the, that in your experience, some of the common styles that seem to contribute to traction alopecia or could lead to it? The type of styling that could lead to traction alopecia, of course, is the weaving, the tight braids, chemical damage, you know, over processing of chemical relaxers, which can also cause scarring alopecia, wherein, you know, in most instances the hair will not grow back. But for the most part, it's the tight braids glue, which is definitely a no -no. I wouldn't advise anyone to do the glue -ins, even with the so -called protective methods or taking precautionary measures, you still can cause, you know, damage to the follicle
A highlight from All GOP Presidential Candidates Should Suspend Their Campaigns And Support Trump
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. Even when everything you say makes sense except it's all bullshit. It's all non -stop. We know this is designed to banish and isolate and to destroy a political outsider. That's the funny thing about this Democrat party. It does hate America. It's hated America since its founding. Voters decide who our presidents are. Not district attorneys, not big donors, not anchors, not pundits, not lawyers. Voters decide. Now from the relieffactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. The voters get to decide. And the voters are going to decide. I'm convinced of that. If not, my country is gone. Welcome aboard. It's Wednesday. I was reading this morning about the Fulton County Sheriff's Department and how the sheriff says, oh, they're all going to get booked and processed. Trump and the 18 other indicted co -conspiracers. There's going to be this three -ring circus next week, a week from Friday, where President Trump and Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and all the rest of them are going to get booked and processed like common criminals at the Fulton County Jail. There's one goal there. You know what it is. It's to embarrass. It's to intimidate. It is to attack a guy that more than half the country loves. And every attempt to embarrass him is going to result in his popularity increasing. Every effort to embarrass him is going to result in greater popularity for President Trump. I had a No Interruptions podcast that dropped this morning. Wherever you get your podcasts, I hope you subscribe to The Mike Gallagher Show No Interruptions podcast. It's really special because we present two points of view without any interrupting. You know, there's a lot of interrupting with Mark Davis this morning. You'll hear it today, the Eminem experience. Mark and I disagreed mightily about my belief that if Ron DeSantis and all the other Republican candidates would simply throw their support behind Trump right now, drastic times call for drastic measures. Jack Smith and Fannie Willis and all the rest of them, Biden's Justice Department, Merrick Garland, they want to destroy your ability to elect the next president of the United States. They're what an amazing, inspirational move it would be if Governor DeSantis said, you know what, I'll try again in twenty twenty eight. But right now I'm all in for Trump. I can't believe they've weaponized the Justice Department this way. It cannot stand. It will not stand. I'm in for Trump. And first of all, DeSantis becomes the single most popular politician in the history of America. His twenty twenty eight landslide would be guaranteed. Second of all, Trump's election in twenty twenty four would almost certainly be guaranteed. These Republicans could unify and have the opportunity to turn this whole thing around just like that. Now, it's not going to happen. I'm sure I'm delusional, perhaps. But man, oh, man, what a game changer that would be. And Mark Davis, boy, he went off on me. He just thinks I'm crazy, delusional. I don't want to let voters vote. I'm Hugo Chavez. I'm Venezuela. He kept arguing with me today that I'm trying to take away the right to vote. I said, Mark, that's precisely what Biden's Justice Department is trying to do. Don't you get it? And for Mark and people who feel the way Mark feels, it's just business as usual. Let's let it all play out. Let's have the primaries. Let's have the debates. Oh, next week. OK, let's get our popcorn out. There'll be a lot of drama, but that's OK. It'll all sort itself out. It's not going to sort itself out. People are going to have to stand up and and do things they would have never considered doing before. And I believe that would include Republicans unifying behind Trump. It could be a pipe dream, but then again, hey, it's 2023. Anything is possible. So back to this no interruptions podcast, a back and forth. This week's no interruptions podcast was between Caroline Wren, who's the former finance adviser for Trump, his Trump Victory Finance Committee. She's also been working with Carrie Lake and David Carlucci, who's a Democrat strategist and a former Democrat New York state senator. And we debated election integrity. Caroline said something and there's no interruptions. First of all, make sure you check out this podcast. Again, subscribe to The Mike Gallagher Show, no interruptions podcast wherever you get your podcast. You're going to want to hear this one. Again, no back and forth, no crosstalk, no interference. You get to hear both points of you uninterrupted. But Caroline explain why there is so much doubt about the integrity of the 2020 election. And so I wanted to lift that cut. I want to play that clip for you from yesterday's pot for this week's podcast. I want you to hear why millions of us are cynical about the outcome of the 2020 election. I don't think I've ever heard anybody in just a minute and seconds 54 so perfectly summarize the problems of the 2020 election and why we have so much doubt. I want to play that for you coming up here in the Relief Factor Studios. I also want to invite you to join us, 800 -655 -MIKE. We've also been taking a poll, The Birch Gold Survey at MikeOnline .com. Make sure you answer the question there, the poll question, every day brought to you by Birch Gold. All you got to do is text the keyword Mike to 98 -98 -98 and we'll send you a free info kit on owning gold, silver, precious metals. It's 13 past the hour. Welcome aboard. Our number is 800 -655 -MIKE. And if you want to beat me up a little bit like Mark Davis did this morning, that I'm crazy and delusional over whether or not it would be a good thing for all the Republican candidates to endorse Trump now. You think that's nuts? We'll see. And wait till you hear what Caroline Wren says about election integrity, 2020 style. 800 -655 -6453. We have a line open and ready just for you.

The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election
"Deniers for things you would claim you were concerned about. Here's this article. This is that time when the Democrats advertised. This is Carrie Lake tweeted this out yesterday. It's what got me thinking about this. I'm not trying to, you know, one upper, by the way. So don't take this the wrong way. Team Carrie Lake. But this is an article we talked about two or three times, and she got me thinking about this. She was like, listen, read this article. This is the Democrats game plan on how they cheat. It's called The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign that saved the 2020 election. I'm only going to read to you a little bit of it, not a lot, because reading on the air is like the worst thing possible. hosts I hate when do that. Let me read to you a 600 -word treatise. No, it's not. But this part's important. This is where they describe the conspiracy and the players and what they were planning on doing. It's just one paragraph. It says, There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that curtailed the protests. They're talking about Floyd, the George Floyd protests, and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left -wing activists and business types. The pact was formalized a in terse, little -noticed joint statement from the Chamber of Commerce and the AFL -CIO published on Election Day. And that's interesting, right? They used to be rivals. Chamber of Commerce versus the unions. Both sides would come to see it as sort of an implicit bargain inspired by the summer's massive, sometimes destructive racial justice protests, in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace. Here's the money and line opposed Trump's assault on democracy. So here they're laying it out. This piece is long. I'm just reading you small slivers of it. But it talks about the conspiracy to interfere in the 2020 election, a very down to earth, regular kind of average everyday Joe terms, business titans, government, labor unions, left wing donors, left wing activists, the Chamber of Commerce,
Hair Loss 101 With Dr. Linda Amerson and Darlene Alexander
"Carrie Hines and today's topic is on the subject of hair loss and we'd like to welcome to HairRadio. Dr. Linda Amerson, doctor welcome to Hair Radio. Thank you so much Mr. Hines for having me today. Well we're glad that you're here. Now along with myself you also we have a special treat Dr. Darlene Alexander who is the vice president of Heavenly Essence Inc. Now they're the creators of Purity hair care products is on the line as well and she'll be hosting with us so a special treat for us and the listeners of Hair Radio. Darlene welcome to Hair Radio. Oh thank you Carrie for having me here today. I really appreciate it. Well listen we want to jump on in to this very, very big subject and I guess the first thing that we probably want to do is to tell everyone hair loss is so vast and there's so many different parts to it but if we must break it down and start at the beginning and Darlene you can certainly jump on in but I'm thinking that Dr. Amerson maybe it would be a good idea for you to tell everyone about or what exactly is alopecia and the general topic of hair loss. Okay absolutely alopecia is the medical term for hair loss and it is a very broad umbrella for several different categories of alopecia and many consumers do not realize that and sometimes that is not always conveyed in a very layman's term to them that just because one person has one category the other person may have something totally different or a combination of different types of alopecia. So what I do in my practice I am a doctor of trichology which means I have furthered my education and my level is directly below dermatology and right above cosmetology and barber styling. So I actually get to the root of the problem by incorporating microscopes to give an accurate diagnosis. I look at internal factors as well as external factors which is very, very important to have a regrowth possible at all. Now would you tell us a little bit on what some of those internal factors might be? Some of the internal factors may include nutrition. Now nutrition is a very, very important factor. Other factors could be mechanical such as the type of heat appliances that a person uses, whether it's the flat iron or the curling iron or the waving iron, et cetera. These are also contributors to some of the scalp damage and hair damage that I see on a daily basis. Now how much of this, just to kind of go back a little bit Dr. Amerson, how much of this would you say is a real problem? Like say for the general public, do you have any idea how many people are actually suffering with hair loss just overall, just an idea? Yes, absolutely. The latest statistics is over 80 million Americans are affected with some form of alopecia. Wow. Yes. Wow. That is amazing. Now Dr. Amerson, when you said that you stated about the types of alopecia, now can a person also have two types of alopecia? Oh, absolutely. There can be multiple types of alopecia and scalp disorders that occurs simultaneously. Okay. For example, I've seen cases where they may have alopecia areata, they may have seborrhea dermatitis, they may have telogen effluvium, they may have inflammation of the scalp, erythema, paritis, as well as hair breakage.
A highlight from ActCon 2023 vs The Federal Government
"Hey everybody, it's the end of the Charlie Kirk Show. Reflections and some breaking news from our Turning Point Action Conference, how the Secret Service threw us a curve ball. Same Secret Service that can't find the cocaine in the White House, or whose cocaine it is. Whose cocaine is it anyway? And we also talk about the straw poll results and more. Email me freedom at charliekirk .com. Get involved with Turning Point USA. Make sure you listen to the end of this episode for a giveaway opportunity and get involved with Turning Point USA, tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to our amazing Turning Point action staff. We had our chapter leadership summit brought to Turning Point USA in the days before it. No other team could have pulled off what we pulled off and what we had to overcome, and I'm going to share that in great detail. For those of you that watched at home, I hope you enjoyed it. It was the largest event of the summer and honestly one of the largest of the year. We had over 6 ,000 people, actually had 7 ,000 people try to attend when you had, you know, here's a little lesson. When you do events, usually you'll have, and we have an algorithm for this, or the formula we've developed, algorithm's not the right word, the formula, you'll have 80 to 85 percent people show up, and depending on the speaker, 70, 75 percent people show up. When you have Megyn Kelly, you have Tucker, and you have Donald Trump, all one after the other. We had something like 96 and a half percent of people show up, and all at once. It was absolutely, it was unheard of. It was the highest turnout we've ever had as far as ticketing in there, and the Turning Point staff handled it amazingly. There was definitely some frustration with getting into the event. I'm going to tell you all about it because some people were definitely upset, and they should be. It was a three -hour wait to get in, and it involved the Secret Service. Interestingly, you know, there was no wait on Sunday when the Secret Service wasn't around. I mean, the same Secret Service, by the way, that can't tell you who's cocaine, it is in the White House. But first, I want to talk about all the good news, and I wanted to say thank you for you guys that had the patience, that supported the event, that prayed for the event. We were really, really blown away by the people that stopped us in the hall, people that said thank you. Charlie, listen to the show. I watch you on Real America's Voice. Charlie, I listen to you on the Salem Radio Network. Charlie, I listen to the podcast. It really touched us, and you guys were patient, and you guys were amazing, and it was an amazingly successful event. So let's get to the recap here. President Donald Trump gave a 110 -minute speech. I got to tell you, President Trump, he goes all in. So he arrives there, and he does like 50 pictures with every police officer that he could find. You want a picture of you? It was like Oprah. Do you want a picture, and you want a picture, and you want a picture, and you want a picture? And then Tucker's there. He talks to Tucker for 20 minutes. Megyn Kelly's there backstage, talks to Megyn Kelly for 20, 30 minutes. The guy's a machine. Then he goes up and gives a 110 -minute speech. He's 77 years old. We receive thousands of emails criticizing Trump. The energy level of this guy is incredible. Incredible. And then he goes on and has a three -hour dinner afterwards. It's just something else. Biden's State of the Union was 72 minutes, and it felt like a marathon. You're kind of like, is this guy going to make it? Is he going to make it? Is he going to make it? And Trump, I at the Turning Point Action Conference, standing room only. We had just people all over the place. It was incredible. Fire Marshal had to close us down and say, enough. And we can't fight the Fire Marshal. It is what it is. And so we had great attendance. It was incredible. Vivek Ramaswamy spoke earlier in the evening. Now, for those that remember, Chris Christie declined our invitation. Nikki Haley declined our invitation. Mike Pence declined our invitation. And Ron DeSantis declined our invitation. Ron DeSantis is a terrific governor of Florida. I don't like people that are rewriting the history. He has been and remains a great governor of Florida. He's done some amazing things, banning critical race theory, what he's done with the new college, what he did with Disney I fully support. He's not been running a good presidential campaign, and he made a major mistake to not show up at this event. We'll dive into that in great detail. Vivek Ramaswamy gave a barn burner speech. And so we had a question of, who do you want to be president of the United States? Donald Trump with 85 percent. The more interesting question, though, is, OK, who is your second choice? Vivek Ramaswamy won with 51 percent as the second choice. And the obvious lesson is, if you show up, you're going to win. Vivek showed up. He did press. He did media. He was on like no sleep. He did an after party. He did an influencer meetup. And Ron DeSantis, I think, received four percent in his home state. If Ron DeSantis would have showed up, he would have done very well. Ron DeSantis could have won over a lot of our audience. He would have been treated very respectfully, obviously. In fact, I said this privately. I'll say it again. We're going to play a piece of paper. I said this. Ron DeSantis should have showed up and he should have done an open mike and say, if you disagree with me, go to the front of the line. If you don't like what I'm doing, go to the front of the line. That's what I do on college campuses. Governor DeSantis would have earned people's respect by doing that. Dodging voters you need to win over is not a path to victory. Just a little taste here. You know that they love Donald Trump, but I think it's more interesting, at least in this sense, is how Vivek Ramaswamy is ascendant. In fact, I believe Vivek is going to overtake Ron DeSantis very soon as second place in the Republican primary. I see it. We know the base very well. Almost every prediction we've made. I'll tell you, I think Vivek's turning point in his campaign was when Vivek took our public advice, which was to go down to Miami and to say it's outrageous that Donald Trump was being charged federally. I was mocked by Ron DeSantis consultants and influencers. I was mocked by people in many presidential campaigns because that tweet went totally viral. Vivek Ramaswamy went from sixth place to now second place. No one heard of it. That's not totally true. Some people had six months ago, but only if you watch Fox News and especially Tucker, but he was not a household name. Vivek Ramaswamy went down to Miami, Florida, and he benefited from the 600 different media outlets that were there. So you have President Trump, obviously he wins 85%. That was my prediction. And by the way, the poll was done by Trafalgar. We had no access to the poll. We had no inside information about the poll. We had no updates about the poll. It was literally we got a report at the end and that was it. It was that simple. I swear to you, people say, Oh, Charlie, you manipulated. Okay. If you think we manipulated, you should have just walked in the room. Do you support Trump? You don't need to manipulate what you can see with your own eyes. And so we get, we get the results. And I said, boy, I think Vivek is going to do very well. And I do want to, I do want to ruminate on this because Vivek Ramaswamy is running the campaign that Ron DeSantis should have run, which is he refuses to attack Donald Trump. He refuses to attack his voters. He's reading the room and he's making principled, clear, wise statements. And it goes to show that, yeah, you can actually ascend in the Republican primary if you understand the Republican base. So 85 .7 % selected Donald Trump for president, 51 .2 % as second, second choice for president. Carrie Lake won our vice presidential straw poll with 30 .8%. And there were some other top line, um, really important takeaways here. And I just want to make sure I'm making this clear. Had Ron DeSantis attended, people would have been way more positive on him. Ron DeSantis could have worked media row. He could have done an influencer reception. He could have gone and taken selfies and pictures. He could have put his hand around people. In fact, you know, because of just, let's say less than desirable, uh, the waiting lines that we had to come into turning point made Maricopa County look like, uh, an expedited thing. You know, people, I think appreciate when you go and you look at them in the eyes and you shake their hands and you take pictures. I did it for an hour and a half. And I think Ron DeSantis would have really benefited from doing that. It's a missed opportunity, but it seems as if those missed opportunities are, are building.
Carrie Fisher gets her Walk of Fame star, on May the Fourth
"On May the fourth Carrie Fisher received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Fisher joined Star Wars costars with Hollywood stars, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. She was our princess damn it.

Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, wearing her mother's portrait printed on her metallic dress accepted the star. She was throwing around a lot of glitter. My mom was glitter.

"carrie" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"We are back with Carrie Sheffield of the independent women's forum author, a journalist, follow her right now at Carrie Sheffield and Carrie Sheffield dot com. Amazing piece in the New York Post that I think answers the questions I have on, is it socialism? Is it communism that's the threat in America? Because we haven't had a violent revolution. This isn't St. Petersburg in 1917 or China under Mao or Cuba. Your piece answers that question. So what are we witnessing right now, Carrie? I call it a softer revolution. So it's having the same outcomes as those events that you mentioned, but we're doing it to our own selves. So nobody's storming Congress. They'll be storming The White House. This isn't the winter palace in St. Petersburg, but the same things are happening. How are they happening? Yeah, so I started the peace out with the quote by Lenin. And what he said was morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of class war. Everything is moral that is necessary for the annihilation of the old exploiting social order and Fred the uniting the proletariat. Meaning something's good if it supports our access to power. Correct. Right. And everything he called it the old order that was the traditional values, which his revolution sought to completely annihilate. In an America, I looked at this new data which maybe some of your viewers and listeners had seen, new polling from The Wall Street Journal. Last week. Exactly. With the University of Chicago, showing and they've tracked this for a quarter century now, rock bottom lowest views on patriotism on faith, on family, people under 30, the lowest level, they say that it's important to have children that they've ever recorded.

That is where you'll find your own YouTube TikTok and videos other places will get more even for that in a minute caddy, but there's lots of interesting things we can talk about today, even obviously we've kind of had a lot of fun talking about Android, but I want to talk about Windows. Because you've been using Windows for a long time. And I don't want to assume anything, but Windows computers, there's a lore cost price. Well, at least there used to be a lower cost price to going on to the Windows system. You could essentially buy a secondhand computer from 5 years ago and it would run the latest version of Windows, maybe that's a bit more challenging today with new requirements for Windows 11, but certainly the barrier of entry was a little bit lower than it was with Mac. So is that maybe what drove you to windows or was it just that you had always used Windows? I've just always used Windows, my dad has always used Windows and I don't know. I've just always had windows. So I do want to try a Mac, apparently though. Is this true? Is this still true that you can't just copy and paste or I don't know, but it's just. I had a friend, right? Okay. I had a friend who told me that once he used a Mac in the 90s and it crashed and definitely would never use a Mac again. I think you're reading from his handbook on this. No, I just there's a YouTube video from Linus tech tips and iJustine and they have to switch operating system. So Linus, who mostly uses Windows. Yes, to use MacBook.

"carrie" Discussed on Keep It!
"Val. Y'all thought that was speaking to you. Know the lived experiences of black people and he was doing it in a way that like no one else was doing it on tv at that time. And maybe that's true right but like he just doesn't have the arrange to have this concert like in the special. I was reading Eric dagens review over at npr. And he says in the special that dave chapelle makes this joke comparing like you know butt black rights to like the gay rights movement says that like if slaves were oiled up and had on booty shorts that maybe they would have been free one hundred years earlier or whatever. The case may be right which one the idea that there weren't clear people who were also enslaved is just like a historical first and foremost Sackett secondly it borrows on this like continual you know divisiveness that lgbtq people are always pitted against black folks. And ignores as. I think you said ira that like i exist. And that i at the intersection of blackness and clearness and for me as a non binary trans person and dave chapelle time and time again has shown us that. He's not interested in that intersection and acknowledging that intersection. Silly this this tricks. It's fruit loops. It's it's also it's also weird black people. Don't get it because it is. It's really the simplest by their black add white. Will you talk about queer. People like pretending that they work names. That also ignores the fact that there weren't white queer people who were enslaving black. Where people you know. It's like in the it doesn't matter if you're not it matters whether you black or white you know and so they're also this. This big acknowledged the fact that like white. This permeates the media. And you know like you. And that is how you know by people other racists subjugated or you know our racially stereotyped etc but can't acknowledge the fact that may be the most visible clear people you see in the media them being white is because of white does not the fact that all people are white you know very that and then i also think about the ways in which you know so much of dave shop house thing is about trying to challenge audiences right and so he thinks he's so progressive he thinks it's like a you know that whole equal opportunity offender thing but one i think comedy has changed the way like that's not funny to me and i'm sure there are millions of people who are out there who it is funny to in some of them can be clear and trans as well right we are not a monolith either but the fact of the matter is like we as as trans people we not wake up they get about no day. I'm dave chapelle. So why the hell do we factor it so much to his comedy of late. I just don't understand like as as swell because that's global ball you know because the girls are releasing dispatch shawls The girls at netflix. The that's girls Sally sally and Touch read my mind immediately after this was posted. And obviously dave chapelle has tons and tons of defenders. There's no such thing as a chapelle special coming out and not all of his very serious fans coming to his defense. But like i'm just reminded of the nanak conversation about how it wasn't stand up because she wasn't joking the entire time or a one woman special technically not stand up and it's like meanwhile then these people are coming here to defend this quote unquote comedy. Which at one point. He just calls himself a turf. Now that stand up to you. It's like why are we receiving serious messages from only men. Why are men you know. Why can't you take all comedy voices similarly seriously and that's when it comes down to it's like men worshiping another man and whatever he says is fucking true to them that's how it felt to me And you know speaking of Ms net flicks. They are in the news also. Because i'm a trans. Employees was suspended after tweeting about deja power. But you know to get into new orleans you know. They're they're also alleged that they crashed a meeting on zone that was for executives to other employees. Were fired for getting into you. A meeting that higher ups were having on zoom. And you can do that on zoom. I mean if you got the link lake you can jump into anything. He'll be let in You know and i mean there's a lot going on here but just the fact that you know you have employees Even feeling like they need to speak out against netflix. Add ted serandon says statement was wasn't giving to me you know it wasn't giving it was like you know we don't think that this sponsors hates etc which is which is foolishness. the because Specific references in disclosure explaining. Why david post special kid. 'cause violence towards Black people especially black trans women so Maybe ted missed that one. It's interesting you say that. Because in the little memo that he wrote to the staff. I think the verge published it. He cites disclosure being on the platform as an example of net flicks supporting platforming. You know trans. Lgbtq work. but i don't see how you watch disclosure and then also believe that these quote unquote jokes. That dave chapelle is putting fours aren't going to materially lead to the types of violence that in particular black trans folk experience right because those are the types of things that we know that folks who've committed violent acts against transpeople people say right to invalidate our humanity and justify you know their violence right and so it just seems i- netflix wants to have its cake and eat it too right. They made it clear that they're not taking this special dow because dave chapelle specials do very well for that platform. Everybody's talking about it. Everybody's watching it right. He's like we go. Get our money's worth out of mr chapelle. 'cause we gave him twenty million dollars right but it definitely leads to the same violence and and and also one thing that dave chapelle just does not notice notice or recognize is that you know the people in the trans community who get the who bear the brunt of the islands the trans community faces are black folks. Black trans women and black films right and the perpetrators of that violence are more often than not black sis. Hat men like dave chapelle right. And so i think ignoring that type of context. It allows you to get up on stage and say that like you know you punch in punch down punching up at everybody around you. But who's actually getting punched right. Who's actually getting killed right. And it's folks who moved to the like me as opposed to folks who move to the world you know like him right And so it's just like i just need more nuance in these conversations ultimately and he checked out at the baby you know while i know technically yes because most people are taller but You get huts down at a their celebrity. Rapper get out right your project out of that. And if if if he's losing share like endorsements of things and that he did that himself that part i i was also blown away that he went to like the mike pence joke area to let god save me from twenty seventeen. Please please stop please. I don't want to hear it was like you mentioned but still hearing my name outside of On january six commission report you a you also brought up disclosure after this special. I mean how is it to even have to see all those people from that movie to talk about this special. It's like or like because he has this special now. This entire conversation about them is oriented around him. It just found found it so annoying like any outsider would find that annoying than he would. Kind of.

"That's the number five. Yes quit the good habits company. So here's something interesting. I'm looking at an article from the uk website. The mirror from twenty fifteen and the headline is revealed why this mystery man wears a pyramid hat on the daily commutes. Okay and then the dak says. The eccentric gentleman was most recently photographed. On what appears to be the london. Underground prompting much speculation. So i guess this became kind of a viral thing in the uk. This one guy on the london tube who kept two wearing our hats. That's it our hat interesting and so someone decided to follow him. Take photos of him about. How did they interview him. I don't see Better oh my gosh. He's the guy he's the one that they're using on the website. Who has was funny so i wonder if they just pulled that photo of him and used it on the website it was probably like absolutely. That's funny yeah. It says the images from twitter's says probably from his own anyway so there you are. Oh good his twitter profile. Follow him so that leads to another aspect of the pure dome hat is that it's noticeable as we've mentioned so i think another part of this investigation and trying this is just gauging. How other people react to you wearing the hat. Did you take it out in public at all. Now i did. I intend to wear it. I knew that this would overlap with one of my harvard. extension classes. Like oh where during one of my classes only when it overlapped with was the first day of like i don't i don't have the courage. Yeah it's it's a choice. Yeah to present yourself with us. I've taken a couple zoom meetings wearing this okay but with people who will get the joke and i can talk to them about it. Here's what i'm doing. Oh you know what. I well okay. I'll tell you what. I have a call with my spanish tutor tomorrow so i'll wear it tomorrow and i won't say anything until he does. That's my promise to you. fantastic. I look forward to hearing that. Well i have one in public k. Few times so the first time i did was shortly after i got it and i was going out with kara. My wife to tender grains we were going to go eat. They're nice restaurant and my whole thought. Was i'm going to tell car that i'm gonna wear this out on our little date not not really day. We're just going to pick up food but you know every and so. I was expecting her to say no. You're not going do it or talk me out of it. But she said she's so resigned herself to her fate with this podcast in her life so in my mind. This was just an exercise. Of how long will it take before car. Can't stand it anymore. And she tells me to take it off. Yeah so. I drive down beautiful downtown burbank in my pyramid hat. I think other drivers maybe occasionally are gone. Yeah was that the best experience of your life. Now that you say no park. And i just kept expecting carter. Stop me but it was like well. I'm game. I'll do this as long as we can here. So we walk down the street and lots of people are looking. I think this is kinda my theory. I think we've kind of entered this era of a certain level of general acceptance of people doing odd things where you realize. I don't need to say anything about this. Maybe it's weird but you know he's doing his thing. He seems happy and his pyramid. So i feel like a lotta people would kind of give it that. Slight second. look like you're wearing a pyramid on your vision. Okay good for you well. It county One thing i've noticed a neighbor of mine obnoxious neighbor yelled at me too but one young lady was sitting with a bunch of other friends. It was like a group of teenagers and she yelled. I like your pyramid. Had dude thanks. Nice yeah it's like you know. I don't have anything really to say about this but i'm gonna i gotta say something. So at least they came out is nominally supportive and then yet my obnoxious neighbor. The other day. I was walking around wearing the headlamp plus the pyramid. I really like your your light dude. He doing psych part of the whole caption. Yeah that comes with a pyramid. Why not so we get into tender greens and on their. I make my order. The person taking the order doesn't say anything we go around. Pay the cashier. They don't say anything either. But then i hear a high ross behind me. I turn around. And it's one of my former co workers who's dating one of my current co workers there next to each other and i immediately take the pyramid embarrassed. Oh sorry it's a long story of the two thousand eleven offering all these excuses and everything. 'cause i'm embarrassed. I feel like. I need to explain wearing the hat. Those particular gals who is doing must conversing. you said. oh that's fine like there. Was that gesture of. I wasn't gonna ask wasn't gonna question it. So high sadie. Thank you very appropriate reaction. Drew said looking good so then afterwards. Kara at a field day with this. She's like oh so. I see i was perfectly fine with you wearing the hat. But then when you see a pretty lady you have to take it up. So she focused on the fact that this former coworker is a very attractive woman and she thought that's why i wanted to take right right. Said that could be coincidental at. These are just co workers. I felt a little very very attractive. Other person right also good looking so and it was. Kara had her theory about. Why took that out. But i was just at the moment. I was like i need to explain this. I need to distance myself from the pyramid. So it was it was i who toppled not kara. But since then i've taken it on my nighttime walks. I've gone all over burbank. While reading a book and wearing my pyramid hatton except for my obnoxious neighbor knowing really said anything about it. Nice so people accept you in your pyramid hat. That's what i'm trying to communicate. I think this is the longest. I've worn it in succession. Taking it on putting it on taking off putting out. It's not putting any uncomfortable. Wait on your head was just gonna say is. It's not like as far as my skin goes right. Like there aren't very many touch points for me and it looks like your hair runs interference on this gives you a little bit of padding a little but the very slight weight on the top of my head is starting to bother me.

When this thing is laying on my forehead. It creates pressure. It leaves a dent so every half hour.

Glands of the body are activated through to vibration of the electrical pre cursing fields of pyramids. Let me lately. Let me just point this out in my favor. Over on the left hand side. They've got the photos of the product. One of the photos shows the period dome over a bunch of fruit. So they're the claim for the generic one and then there's this guy just wearing one. I don't know this is just a very strange photo. This man oh yeah yeah the only half smiling at the white guy with the curly brown hair. Yep yep i remember own. There's a photo of it over a bunch of avocados yup. Okay you're right you're right okay. So back to the description this balances the pre cursing energy fields around the endocrine glands and makes expanded consciousness possible. Okay so.

"In california. It's oh it's a twelve inch steel household pyramid that is twenty four karat gold plated interesting. That's i no. That's the vitamin vitamin and it's used to treat and energize water and other beverages preserved fruits and vegetables longer than normal oh and also promotes healthy plant growth. Plant growth healthy plant growth okay. We didn't use that one. But i ran some fruit experiments. Because on the website they show videos of people pudding fruit underneath the pyramid. And then they show you the gross yucky fruit. That was not under the pyramid. Excellent so i was like well. This is easy to test. Yeah let's do it. So i ran to different fruit. Pyramid studies nice. I want to hear about that. I also want to note. That reminds me of the emoto water experiments. yes the famous doctor. Emoto a japanese. I believe scientists who said that he did these studies where he had water in different little plates and then also jars that had water and rice in them and he'd like say mean things to one group of waters and nice things to the other group of waters and then they would either freeze into beautiful patterns or ugly patterns if they were in the little dishes depending on what that they got good or bad messages. Ugly ice crystals disordered chaotic but beautiful designed crystals around the love phrases rice and tranquility and then the rice. He would like yell at some of it and then be really nice to the rest and completely bonkers but this studies were not reproduced to say you know. It doesn't appear he. He connected them very well in the first place. But i also did my own. Emoto water study at one point and Had yell at rice and my kitchen. Would you like yelled the words of michelle. Bachmann was just thinking about this. The other day had like at the time she was so presence in the media and now people probably read that article and go. Who the heck is michele bachmann. Thankfully we've mostly forgotten about her. Okay so you actually put fruit under your pyramid. Yes i did how to go all right. So what i did. So the first time. I went to yield grocery store. Okay and i had. My family helped me pick as identical of fruit as possible spirit. Nectarines bananas peaches pears apples. And like the arc. We got two of each pair affairs fun with that. But you have more than two bananas. There you know came in a bunch. We found a bunch that had to like bananas and then we ate the other bunny. Whoa science science that experiment. I only ran three. And a half days because i had to leave for camp so i didn't know how much time we had with this investigation so i was like okay. The fruit stuff. So i have this long video of me comparing these two sets of fruit after three and a half days ed saying yeah. They seem the same. This is very super size me so really not much different there. They tasted the same. They look the same so they had held their similarity. But i thought well three and a half days. That's not fair share. Let's run this thing longer. Okay so we ran the experiment. This time with a bananas again. Okay pairs okay. We're a pair plums. And what are those little orange ones. Oh andrine 's that. I think is a clemson common time that's it. Yes so clementines. And to golden kiwi. Nice so okay. So i started those on august seventeenth. So that was the first day that i put an identical set under the pyramid and then identical set in the same configuration They all looked about the same not under the pyramid so a couple days went by and then on august nineteenth. Look at this peach under the pyramid now. Gross that actually made my stomach turn a little sorry jump. Gay giant mold spot. Yeah on that beach the one not under the no. No mullets be seen anyway. So oops. I cut out a chunk of a peach peaches or so then. The experiment continued and six days in look at the pair. Oh yeah okay. Skull browns by a big bruise a bruise and actually on the other side. Even bigger bruce. Oh yeah yeah. So that peres one. You'd like Do i even wanna bother trying to cut out these giant bruises right and again. The one not under the pyramid conveniently looked much better now. Is this you had them like pretty similar. Temperatures as well. Oh they're right next to each other on the they're like less than a foot away from each other on the same counter originally was starting to put them on different services in car kept saying well. This one's near the stove so that's going to affect it so oh you're right okay. Let's put him near each other. So so the pyramid failed. I out of those two. Okay so then. I removed them. Eight some pairs and kept going. This is after twelve days so okay so now. We've only got the banana. The kiwi the plum and the clementine left. Oh because you've been if it's gone total rotten you've removed it round exactly out of its musuem but look at look under the pyramid. Yeah okay also grow. Bananas thoroughly brown and so i would say both of them are. It's about even. I'd say they brown about the same. I open them up. And yeah they they both kinda turned a little gelatinous on the inside. So i i don't eat those banana. Admittedly no blinding here. But yeah right now. But i agree with your statement for sure and a lot of this is based on the visual of the exterior and how it looks but then i would eat them if i could afterwards i will say that the plug on the outside of the pyramid started out more wrinkly. Okay it looked a little grocer. But by the end i would say they both kind of had that same thing going on and that they were both little white at top. Yeah there were both edible. I was able to eat both of those plans but clearly past their prime and then the clementines were perfect. Stay long time. So those tasted great from both po. Sides and the golden. Kiwi seemed fine for both still firm. So i haven't eaten those. Those are the only ones that have escaped my mouth so there you go so after twelve days i think i got more conclusive results and it seemed like the two that really went bad. Were both under the pyramid interesting. Now you did not get the vitamin though did your did the fire pyramid. Also say no the fruit under me. That's a good question. I feel like the general claim years. That pyramid power from any of these pyramids will help your fruit but it was not specifically the. I think that was your mistake. Well wasn't worth paying another two hundred bucks for actually. I think that's your mistake. I think if we ask someone from purity and they knew that your experiment had failed your mistake..

"Save staying healthy. I know where we're dealing with a lot out there right now. A lot of stuff. That's going on a lot of a lot of crap around the country and like always we try to be an escape for you talking music talking with great gas like we have today will have ms carrie stevens author motto. Enterpreneur an actress to talk about her latest book. And one that i really really thoroughly enjoyed. And it is called unrated revelations of a rock and roll centerfold. What's going on kerry. How are they doing great. I'm just you know trying to stay sane like everybody else and Happy to talk to you and So glad i released my book this year because it lets me live in the past and My neighbor place could be now really is. That's a great statement. Because right now. I think a lot of us are living on the memories of the things we found. Joy isn't whether it's concerts whether it's traveling whatever it is. That's that's an excellent statement to begin the interview with yes. Thank you It's really saves the actually through all of this I never wet a person who believes in living in the past. I was always one of those people that you know. Point of power is in the present moment Kind of people. I believe in You know you can't you can't you. If you live in a truly in a moment you can't see depressed but if you worry about the future for the past you know you're doomed but i've since discovered that Well things have changed. Things have changed. That's the bottom line So yeah now actually. I'm very happy I'm so happy that i lived a life to the fullest. And you know my book as you know you've read it. There's so much in it. And i keep remembering so much more on whether i'm doing an interview or just randomly. I'm in the bathtub or something just so many memories. Come up from my past that And i'm not gonna say i took it for granted. 'cause i didn't i always knew while i was on my best life traveling all over the world and do crazy stuff. I knew i was doing crazy then. I this voice in the back of my head said someday you won't be able to do crazy stuff. I thought it would be to. Someday i'd be married and a family. I wouldn't or i'd be old guys traveled so much and i looked at old people canes own. I need to do this long. Yeah but yeah. I had no idea that we'd be Just not allowed to do it. Well we're going to get in all that. Because i really enjoyed reading this book And there's a lot to cover and one of the things that i really want to tackle. Is the things outside of eric. We're gonna touch on eric a little bit. Because we are music podcasts. It will be a little bit about it but there's a lot of stuff beyond your story with him. You have your own store. You have your own journey. That is quite compelling and very interesting because not a lot of people have lived the life that you have and there's a lot to get to and you know i always appreciate a someone's journey and someone's adventure in life because survive your life that i have not a lot of people have come out of it a success story and Not another hollywood trainwreck or another like byproduct of the seen And survival story earned. It's empowering well that's interesting that you say that because when you talk about empowering and i know that there's the first question i always ask every time we have a new guest but i do want to just touch on this really really quick when we do talk about eric there. Is that sense of someone in your life at a very young age. You're in your early twenties. He was really the first person that i believe really made. You feel empowered in really offered you. Support was prior to that right. I mean we talk about your parents in the book you know the dynamic with with the two different relationship with your father and your mother in there really wasn't a lot of support and there really wasn't a lot of you know uplifting intrinsic. Don't know if i knew ya. I don't think i knew what support wise until i had eric. And that no right. And that's a huge moment for you. That's like that really that moment. When you know. Eric is always supporting everything you wanna do. And it's always behind in support of unconditionally. Your whole journey in life really begins there right everything else before. That is just all kind of preparation in all kinds of. You know what. I'm glad we're not on video. Because i'm already tearing up on. Well you know there's something i've always South about what you're saying. Let's that eric's picked up where my parents left off see raised me. He.
