A Young Fire Spouse's Journey With Her Husband's Cancer Diagnosis
"A few episodes back we sat down with Diane Carter and she shared her story of her husband's line of duty, panther diagnosis, and her relentless pursuit of making turnouts safe and just exploring PFAS and all that fun stuff about exposure in the workplace. If you haven't listened to that podcast, we definitely recommend it. And today we actually have another first responder spouse, Brittany San Pedro with us to share her story about her husband's line of duty cancer diagnosis. Brittany, welcome. Thank you for having me. Brittany San Pedro is a speech therapist assistant, wife to a firefighter and a mom. She has been with her husband for 10 years and has an 18 month old and another one on the way. In late October of 2019, Brittany's husband at the age of 30 and 10 years into his career noticed a small lump on his collarbone. After several tests, he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was the first line of duty cancer diagnosis in the history of Greeley fire department. Since then, many changes to screening and early detection have been made as a department. As a result, several malignant polyps, skin samples and ultrasound readings have potentially saved the lives of other firefighters within the department. Today, Brittany is sharing her story to help anyone who may feel alone or scared, especially after a health diagnosis. She also wants to encourage change and promote the importance of regular screenings and early detection. Okay. So tell us your story a little bit, the whole thing. We want to hear it. My husband came home one day and just kind of mentioned like, Hey, I got out of the shower at work and I just noticed I had a bump on my collarbone. And he's like, you know, I haven't had my yearly physical. I'm going to go in, have it checked out. And you know, none of us, we weren't really worried. And we were just kind of like, okay, he has a bump. We're going to go check it out. And his general practitioner ran blood work and then started him on antibiotics thinking it was just an infection. His body was fighting something and blood work came back fine. It didn't go down with the antibiotics. At that point, they did an X -ray. Everything looked fine. The blood work looks fine. And his general practitioner asked him what he did for a living. And you know, you fill out that survey, you tell him what you do. And he's like, you know what? We're going to, we're going to keep going. We're going to keep looking. If you're fine with that. You're a firefighter. It just makes me sit better if I, if I keep digging a little bit. And he kept going in for appointments. He then got an ultrasound done. After the ultrasound, he scheduled an appointment for a biopsy to have it looked at. And at this point we hadn't even heard the word cancer yet. I at the time was a special education teacher at a school across the street from the hospital where he was having the biopsy done. He texted me and let me know he was going in. He was super nervous. I let my co -teacher know, Hey, my husband doesn't usually have his feelings out like that. And lets me know that he's there. He's like, that's fine. Go. I ran across the street and he went back. Everything was fine. He came back out and then he just had this look on his face that I'll never forget his eyes started welling up with tears. And I guess the doctor who performed the doctor tech who performed the biopsy, you know, before his doctor had a chance to say anything told him, yeah, this is pretty typical for lymphoma. And both of us were just kind of like, what is happening? What's going on? We were hit by a bus. We didn't even know that this is something that they were looking for. And we called our closest friends, our little mini fire family. And we were like, Hey, we need support tonight. And in a minute, everybody was together at one of our friends house and everybody was just talking trash about the guy who stepped out of his scope of practice and said some things he maybe shouldn't have. And we were like, it's not going to happen. He's too young. He's healthy. There's no way. So a couple of days went by, we got a phone call saying that the doctor wanted us to come in, even though it was his day off and usually not a great sign. So we were a little nervous going in. And then when we sat down, he let us know that they, they did find it to be Hodgkin's lymphoma and that they needed to start figuring out what stage he was at coming up with a plan, trying to figure out everything. And we were both strong until they asked us, you know, are you guys, you guys are young. You guys just got married, just bought a house. Like you, are you guys wanting to start a family at some point? And I just started bawling because I already knew what was coming. And he said, I recommend that you reach out to a fertility specialist, if that's something that you would want to do. And you start reaching out to all your resources. And we did, after that, he started chemo in like less than a week. It was probably like four or five days. And he had chemo, he had it on Christmas. He had it, like he started in November, had it for about six months and then took a little bit of a break and then started radiation. And then after he went through radiation, his end date was March 14th, 2020. And then right after that, the next day the world shut down, but it was just, you know, for us, it was just amazing because he never, we never went to an appointment alone. It was just such a somber time. We were just had this dark cloud of stress and not knowing and anything. And at the same time when it was so dark, such a beautiful thing, because we had the department bringing rigs and down we packed that cancer center and, you know, we had some of his best friends, like his best man and another Lieutenant was there at every single one of his chemo appointments. And, you know, everybody kind of band together for him. It was kind of, it was a beautiful thing to see everybody supporting each other and making sure that he was never alone. You know, the Terry Farrell Fund reached out right away. You know, they did a cut it for cancer for him. It was just something that they hadn't ever experienced before at the, this department. And we were, we were just kind of overwhelmed with all the support that we had,

"Bad people. A win. But you know who did? Let's continue. Where's my list? Robert Alderholt. Aderholt from Alabama wants to lose. Rick Allen from Georgia wants to lose. Mark Amadel from Nevada. Kelly Armstrong from North Dakota. Hear that on the Flag Radio Network? Kelly Armstrong feels good about his vote. Wants him gone. Unbelievable. Don Bacon, Nebraska. Troy Balderson from Ohio. Andy Barr from Kentucky. Cliff Bents from Oregon. Jack Bergman from Michigan. Stephanie Bice from Oklahoma. Ken Buck. Oh, Ken Buck. I'll tell you, you want to talk about blackmail. That guy's being blackmailed. Larry Boushcon from Indiana. Michael Burgess from Texas. Ken Calvert from California. Mike Carey from Ohio. Earl Buddy Carter from Georgia. Lori Chavez-Derimer from Oregon. Juan Siskamani from Arizona. Tom Cole from Oklahoma. And, of course, Mr. Comer, as I've mentioned before. You know that there were eight Republicans that sided together to not impeach Mayorkas? Patrick McHenry from North Carolina. Tom McClintock from California. John Duarte from California. Virginia Fox from North Carolina. Darrell Issa from California. Cliff Bents from Oregon. Ken Buck and Mike Turner. So, no impeachment of Mayorkas, no impeachment of Merrick Garland, no impeachment of Joe Biden, but an expulsion of one of your own Republican colleagues. No impeachment of Christopher Wray. By the way, we couldn't even get Marjorie Taylor-Greene's provision to censure Rashida Tlaib. And yet, Republicans are so excited to go after George Santos. Again, George Santos, he's a clown. I just want to make sure everyone is clear about that, okay? But we're in the midst of a bitter struggle for our Republic, and our margin is this big. And this is what they spend their priorities on? Yes. So let me tell you a funny story. So we do this at Turning Point Action, where we prepare, we do a scorecard. If you guys don't know, you guys can see all of your members of Congress, how they have voted. I think we have the best scorecard out there. We should talk about it more often. We should get Tyler on the show next week. It's tpaction.com, you can look at our scorecard, tpaction.com slash scorecard. So we are going through, because you have to have a certain vote total, because we tally all your votes, to even be considered for an endorsement from Turning Point Action, which I believe is a very important endorsement, right? Tons of grassroots activists, a lot of muscle, hardest working people in the movement. You guys know the power of Turning Point. Glory be to God of how much he has blessed us. And so we are sitting in our room, just looking at the data, right? All personal bias aside, because we don't want any personal bias to come into our endorsements, and we have a whole committee, and we have to do votes, and very, very procedural, right? But even to make the vote to be able to be endorsed, you have to have a certain threshold, okay? And so we're going through it, and I was like, this can't be, right? And we have a picture of it, I said, who got a 96 lifetime score? And again, it's just the numbers. It doesn't deal with any convictions or any of that stuff, or convictions or indictments. George Santos is one of the best records of voting in the last 12 months of any member of Congress.
A highlight from 195 - The Bull Case for $COIN | Michael Rinko & Jay
"And that being said, I think there's definitely a portion of folks that won't trust any exchange. But given how long Coinbase has been operating in this space and how trustworthy and how by the books that they've done things, I think there's certainly a portion of these folks that would be a lot more comfortable leaving their capital on Coinbase's international exchange versus an exchange like Binance or BitMEX and the like. Yeah, and just to add to that quickly, this is something Jay and I were actually riffing on the other day, but I'm looking at a Reuters article now, Binance stops accepting new users in the UK. I believe that came out yesterday. So just to take a step back, like what's kind of happening right now, I think there's a realization in capitals all around the world that crypto is not going away. You know what I mean? Maybe half of it scams, maybe more, a larger percent of crypto scams, but Bitcoin, Ethereum and maybe a few others are not going away. They're going to be here and they're going to be an integral part of our new financial system where they're going to come into the existing world, whatever. It's taken a while for these politicians and these lawmakers to realize that, I think, but they're slowly starting to realize that. So what's happening now is they're saying, well, all right, if crypto is going to be a thing going forward, we want to control it. We want it to happen on our shores. We want it to follow our laws. And we do not want some unregulated kind of shady actor that we're not sure who it's regulated by to be controlling all of it. So you guys just have Nick Carter on. He's talked a lot about Operation Choke Point. I think he's done a great job on that. And essentially how I see this playing out is that the U .S. and kind of the West, broadly speaking, its allies are going to say, we want to control crypto. We want some say in what happens. We want these big, massive public companies like Coinbase to follow our rules. And we're going to actively squeeze out other participants, a la Binance, out of our markets and essentially make way for someone that we have some sort of control over. So I think a bold case for Coinbase is actually that it's so highly regulated, despite having all these court battles with the SEC. The SEC probably has a better opinion of Coinbase than Binance or some of these other exchanges. So, yeah, I think there's kind of a regulatory tailwind, a geopolitical tailwind there as well. Yeah. So basically there's a lot of kingmaking going on on behalf of kind of regulators. And it seems like we could have kind of the crypto banks of the West, right, that are basically knighted by the powers that be. And then we'll probably have international crypto banks or kind of like Eastern crypto banks as well. But it does seem like some of the regulators are targeting non -U .S.-based exchanges far more aggressively than maybe they are. As aggressive as they've been with Coinbase and a Kraken, they seem to be even more aggressive on these offshore exchanges. So it's very interesting. Borderline unfair at times. Yeah. Like who said any of this was fair? I don't know that any of this is fair. It's just kind of like analyzing what is happening. Yeah, no, and I don't mean to endorse the strategy at all. This is just kind of what I'm perceiving. And I think it kind of fits with this like broader narrative that we're going through of technology increasingly being viewed through like a zero -sum geopolitical lens where there's kind of two camps. There's like the U .S. and its allies, and then there's maybe China, Russia, whoever else. We're seeing this go on with like semiconductors, AI. My opinion is crypto is just as important as those technologies. Politicians might not realize it yet, but I think that they will. I think things like stablecoins will make them realize that sooner than later. So, yeah, I think this is like a big tailwind, I guess, most potently for Coinbase's offshore purpose exchange. So this offshore purpose exchange, there seems to be just a crazy alignment of the stars. First, it's a massive market with massive volumes and has been proven by other businesses to make a lot of revenue. That's star number one. Star number two is that things like BitMEX and FTX just collapsed. So really a lot of the competition just died. Binance is still standing, but it has all of the regulatory pressure, which is the third star. And so Coinbase has regulatory alignment, this massive market that is perps and all the dead competition. I just see like a lot of alignment of stars, which onshore United States regulated exchange can go capture this thing. Whoever can get there first can probably capture a lot of incoming revenue. Is this conclusion naive or this seems to be just right for the taking by Coinbase? I think that's well said. Yeah, that was my conclusion as well after looking at it was it's wide open. This specific market is wide open for the taking. And now we're just going to have to watch. I mean, can Coinbase kind of execute and capitalize on it? And, you know, that's TBD. But I think they have a pretty decent track record so far on executing on some of their other business line items. Are you launching a token? Is it already live?

A highlight from The Chopping Block: Nic Carter on Hamas Crypto Funding, SBFs Courtroom Collapse, and Dramas Involving Lido and dYdX - Ep. 564
"And so you just had this chain of events with it kind of like a game of telephone where at each step you're getting further and further from sort of the ground truth. So subsequent to all that, I decided that this was completely unacceptable, pushed the Wall Street Journal to retract or update their story, which to their credit they did do. It was a pretty milquetoast correction in my opinion. I mean, journalists never want to correct themselves. That's all they have. It's like their pride. So the fact that we even got what I think was a meager correction was still a huge win. Not a dividend. It's a tale of two quants. Now, your losses are on someone else's balance sheet. Generally speaking, aircrafts are kind of pointless anyways. I'm into trading firms who are very involved. I like to eat the ultimate punch. DeFi protocols are the antidote to this problem. Hello everybody. Welcome to the Chopping Block. Every couple of weeks, the four of us get together and give the industry insider's perspective on the crypto topics of the day. The quick intros, first we've got Tom, the DeFi maven and master of memes. Tom, you got to say your little thing. I'm sorry, I'm supposed to say something now? Okay, there's my voice. Hopefully you identify me. Perfect. Robert, the crypto connoisseur and czar of Superstate. It's going to be a spooktacular episode. Ooh. It is the day before Halloween that we're recording this. And then we've got a special guest, Nick Carter, the illustrious performed Bitcoin maxi. I don't have a catch phrase, but yeah, I'm happy to be here. This is actually, I kept your same catch phrase from the previous time you were on the show, which we'll talk about in a little bit. And then I'm the head hype man at Dragonfly. So we are early stage investors in crypto, but I want to caveat that nothing we say here is investment advice, legal advice, or even life advice. Please see ChoppingBlock .xyz for more disclosures. Nick, it's great to have you on the show. You are, at least for the moment, the main character of Twitter, or at least you were going through this last weekend. I went back through your previous appearance on the show, which I don't know if you remember, but it was the day that FTX collapsed. That's insane. So we ran this special episode right when the CZ had just made the initial bid saying that we are taking over FTX. And we live streamed a show. It was you, me, Tom, and Laura, because everything was insane. I think none of us had slept in like 36 hours. It was so interesting hearing, I listened to it back because I was just like, when I saw that, because I went to go look up what your title was at that time, because I was like, okay, I want to keep some continuity. When I saw that, I was like, what did it feel like then to hear all of us processing what was happening the day that FTX was collapsing? Now, having like read the SPF book and watching SPF go through cross -examination and all this stuff, now that we know so much more, it was incredible how naive we all were and how much credit we were still giving to Sam. We were talking about him being like this regulatory golden boy wonder kid. And we were like, oh no, there's no way that Alameda is really that bad. Like, I'm sure there's a better explanation. Like it was so innocent, I think the way we were seeing all this at that time. I was going to ask you, did any one of us have an actual sense of how bad it was at the time? No, no, no, no, no, no. Every single one of us was like, this looks really bad, but I'm sure it's not actually this bad. Something must have gone wrong. They must have misplaced the books. Something weird happened. But like, you know what we were talking about? We were talking about how bad this is for the industry because Binance is going to consolidate market share. That's what we were talking about. That's amazing. Predictions are hard.

Joe Scarborough Blames Benjamin Netanyahu for Being Unprepared
"They're in the middle of a war. I guess Scarborough would have been on some crap network when we were hit at Pearl Harbor trashing FDR. Of course not. I guess he would have been trashing George W. Bush on 9 -11. Of course not. But Scarborough has an animus, a real animus towards strong Jewish leaders like Netanyahu. As did his wife and as did his wife's father, Brzezinski. As did Jimmy Carter. So that's where his mind is right now. And so he's telling you Netanyahu was asleep at the wheel. Netanyahu was obsessed with his court proceedings. Netanyahu was this. Netanyahu was that. That he'll never tell his audience about what actually taking place in Israel. Never. Because he's a jackass. He's on that network. He's there with pro -Hamas individuals who spew their anti -Semitism, their anti -Semitism, their bigotry every night. And he's not going to resign. Where is he going to go? Can't go to Congress. Fox wanted nothing to do with him. He and his missus failed at radio. What are they going to do? He saw it, sells his soul such as it is.

"In the study had to stop taking the pill due to nausea and vomiting. Live from the Bloomberg Interactive Broker Studios, Global News, 24 hours a day and whenever you want it. With Bloomberg News Now, I'm Michael Barr, this is Bloomberg. Paul, John. All right, Michael Barr, thank you so much. We appreciate that. John Tucker, yesterday was another seminal day for rail commuters in the Northeast. They started digging the tunnel. Yes. Oh, no kidding. Yes. So are they using the boring that, machines whatever they're called. I hope so. Whatever they do. But they had the ribbon cutting yesterday. So they've been working hard over on the Jersey side. And this is all part for our listeners. The Gateway Project, which is going to put another tunnel underneath the Hudson River for some more railroad tracks for not just New Jersey Transit, but for the Amtrak trains doing the Washington to Boston Carter. I'm going to guess that in terms of infrastructure projects worldwide, this is, if not the biggest, one of the largest taking place right now. Yeah, they say it's the biggest in U the .S. right now. And again, I don't know how you'd bore a tunnel underneath a river, but they did it 100 years ago, so I'm assuming they can do it now. They did it 100 years ago with the Lincoln and Holland tunnels using, at the time, what were called crakers. The workers went in, just mucked all the stuff out of there. Because it's not granite, it's more like a muddy consistency rather than the Manhattan schist, which is rock hard, obviously. steel. And this time, I suspect they're going to use the tunnel boring machines, which will speed it up considerably. I would hope so, but the way I plan the timing is this will open the day I retire. That's how it's going to work. So whatever that day is, it will be the same day. It's at least, what are they saying? It's at least like a decade or two. Yeah, you're looking at at least ten years. I've been working at ten least years. No, you'll be at Walmart. I'll be a Walmart reader. You won't need to use the tunnel anymore. Something like that. But anyway, so that's getting started. And I can tell you just, you know, riding in on the train today, there are a million workers out there doing, I don't know what they're doing, they're building all kinds of stuff. And Michael, when Paul rides the train into work, he's on the Northeast corridor, which also uses Amtrak. These are Amtrak tracks. And he in crosses Kearney, New Jersey, what's known as the portal drawbridge, parts of which are actually wooden, and go back over a hundred years. Thankfully, they're also replacing this bridge that occasionally has has caught fire. And occasionally, right, it gets stuck in the open position. And then after since somebody had to hand crank it shut, and that this is the basis of the busiest rail line in the United States. So does it need some upgrade, some infrastructure funding? I think so. So here we go. So they're digging and we're all the more happy for it. Again, it's not just for the folks in Jersey getting into the city. It's the whole Northeast Carter, is which the busiest rail line, rail Carter in the United States. So it's big news. And they are digging, they are working, they are making a lot of headway there. So that's good to report. S &P futures off a quarter of 1%. NASDAQ futures off about four tenths of 1%. So we've had a phenomenal November performance. This is Bloomberg. Thank you.

Again, it is the first of December, so it's kind of our Christmas launch as well. We have kind of brushed off some of those great Christmas classics in our playlist for today. We opened up the show with Love and More by Courtney King or Braxton, but we'll be kind of switching over to our Christmas songs and all that. We just have to do that. And speaking of Christmas, we're also going to do kind of like not the big Rockefeller Center style tree lighting that happened in New York City this past couple days ago. We're doing our tiny tree in Brooklyn.
A highlight from Elizabeth Warren Crypto Hearing FAILS! | Crypto FUD vs. Facts
"All right, I just want to set the stage here about what's been happening that's been causing all this turmoil about fake news and Elizabeth Warren not really caring. Well, we're going to show you all that good stuff. It all started kind of with this Wall Street Journal article. They put up some nice fake news saying, you know, terrorism is financed by crypto, yada, yada. Didn't have the real story. In fact, they ended up having to eat a little bit of crow, but yet have retracted this. This was a company, the data company, that went in and set the record straight on their own data analysis. So that's been pretty much set. But it all boiled down into Senator Warren and a Senate hearing onto whether or not they even believed it. Let's take a look at this first clip. On this committee, we've raised the alarm about crypto and its role in illicit finance, including the use of crypto to fund terrorists and enable rogue nations financing them. Last week, Senator Warren and I, along with more than 100 of our colleagues of both parties, wrote to the administration to voice concern about these issues. I'm glad that members of this committee, including Senator Reid and Senator Warner, have put forward bipartisan plans for closing gaps around digital assets. I do want to highlight, let's don't lose sight and focus from the big picture. Crypto is currently a very small part of the puzzle. The major funding channels are where and remain state funding, Iran and others. Those are the major players. Most of the funds are still being transferred by the traditional channels that we all know from the past. Banks, money transmitter, payment system, hawala, money exchange, trade based terrorism, financing, charity, cash, shell companies and crypto. The big, big money in this terror financing story comes from Iran and specifically from its oil sales. Iran's total revenue from oil exports since 2021 is between 81 and 91 billion dollars. Go after the big money funneled to the terrorists by Iran. Go after the oil sales. Go after the terrorist enablers. That is what fuels the savagery of October 7th. Thank you. All right. So some good statements in the fact that the Senate hearing actually included, you know, reality. It included truth. And of course, this is Dr. Wagman. Just to give you an idea, this is her LinkedIn page. She's the former director in general of the Israel Money Laundering and Terror Financing Prohibition Authority, the IMPA. So essentially that was her job, was to track this down. So clearly she already was ahead of this and understood where this was going and that it was not crypto that's involved in this. In fact, it's the traditional fiat, fake fiat systems that we've always had out there funding all of the bad things that happen, of course, in our environment. I want to jump over to another clip that goes into tracing funds. Listen to what they have to say. A few years ago, the way terrorist groups exploited crypto is pretty simple. They raise money with Bitcoin. How are they innovating and how they use crypto? How do our legal and technological tools need to evolve so that we can keep up? The law enforcement community developed tools to investigate that, trace that and follow that. And for example, the Israeli authorities were able to seize and freeze about seven million dollars from Hamas in fundraising campaign that they ran. Because most of the activities is going over the blockchain and there is a lot of transparency, we could actually use this technology in order to trace the bad actors. One of the things that we've recently seen is the Hamas stop its fundraising through Bitcoin the because Israeli authorities were able to trace that. And perhaps to add to that, it's not only the intelligence community that is able to do that. But here, because everything is transparent, we could do a lot of work by the private sector. And we see a lot of crowdsourcing activities of people that actually go after and try to find those networks and then report that to the authorities. So that's a very interesting balance that changed intelligence communities. It's interesting, too, because the likelihood of crowdsourcing, I think, is going to be a real force in the future, especially around blockchain, around some of these bad actors. And in fact, I think it's going to continue to push a lot of these bad actors off of the blockchain and back into traditional methods called fiat, running all this. Here was Dune Analytics, their mission to make crypto more data accessible. But the Wall Street Journal could have signed up to Dune and queried the data themselves. I loved it. But yeah, here we are. And of course, they put out basically a bounty on the idea of, let's go trace this down. And at several bounties, it's been piling in for quite some time. And of course, all of this started right here. Break the fake news and crypto, of course, outperformed Wall Street Journal chain analysis. That'd be pretty easy, actually. I think anybody could outperform the Wall Street Journal in terms of their analysis of just about anything. Then you had Nick Carter come in and says, hey, a couple of updates. We've already got many submissions. I'll make first payouts. So already there's starting to be a flow of content moving into the space here. And when you look at actually one of the, I won't say winners, but one of the people contributing to this, they start going down and you can start seeing this literally live on Twitter, all of this X happening right now in terms of all the transactions. This is where it gets interesting right here. I'll zoom in on this a little bit more. But you can kind of see this on the 180 ,000 transactions going through. This is the matrix that we end up with. And look right there. Pretty sure that there are some innocent parties here that are unrelated to terrorism. Look at this. This is the flow. This is the only one place that you can do this. And remember, she mentioned, Dr. Wagner just mentioned 7 million, 7 million. She also mentioned 90 billion through traditional means in terms of oil funding that is financing a lot of these things. So this is where it gets me just out of sorts on all of this stuff. Around the validity and the fact that we have places like the Wall Street Journal that continue to do this kind of reporting. I want to go to our next clip that gets into a little bit more of, well, this is more of a joke. Listen in. I do not accept the premise that there is no father or mother of any DeFi system. Somebody is making money off of that. And we try to, we try to grapple on that.
A highlight from FinCEN, ETF, and Swan Private Macro Friday with Sam Callahan, Alex Stanczyk, and the Caf Bitcoin Crew - October 27th, 2023

Eastern every morning to become part of the conversation yourself. Thanks again. We look forward to bringing you the best Bitcoin content daily here on the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast. Welcome to Cafe Bitcoin. Happy Friday. Good morning. Hey, Peter. I'm just reading the the post up there on the Nest from Corey about the bounties for the WSJ's fake reporting. Yeah, yeah, I mean, that's pretty cool little endeavor that's going on by Nick Carter. Basically trying to combat this fake news around crypto finance terrorism that is the FUD of choice, I'd say, in the last couple of weeks. Yeah, it's pretty cool. For sure. And fake news is bipartisan. We know that now. Yeah, I mean, to get everyone up to speed, The Wall Street Journal had an article that talked about how over like 90 million has been thrown out there. One hundred thirty million dollars worth of crypto has helped fund Hamas and Hezbollah and other terrorist groups. They cited a crypto on chain analysis firm called Elliptic in their research. Since then, multiple on chain firms such as Chainalysis and Elliptic have refuted those numbers. They've potentially misrepresented the amount of crypto being used to finance terrorism by over 99 percent. But The Wall Street Journal refuses to retract it, refuses to make any kind of correction. Very, very disappointing. And in response to that false news or fake news, the White House got a letter from multiple politicians led by Elizabeth Warren and her crypto army that directly linked this fake news and basically told them that we need to stop this. We need to stop crypto because of this fake news article that we didn't do any research ourselves, of course. And that kind of went to a recent hearing that we saw some interesting comments from multiple senators as well as witnesses going back and forth about how, you know, we have to be stronger against crypto. But then there was like obviously the people who actually did their homework were like this were completely misrepresented numbers and it kind of went back and forth. So I don't know if anybody has thoughts on this, but it's interesting to see kind of X in Bitcoin, Bitcoin X, I still say Bitcoin Twitter, but Bitcoin Twitter kind of fight back against this stuff and really make a lot of noise around this fake news. I think it's encouraging to see. Well, one at a time. Peter, let's go with you first. Is this also part of the FinCEN initiative to create, you know, that that's been recently proposed that we're all a little upset about? Well, I think you could say it's I don't know if it's directly related to the fake news article, but I think it's related to this overarching theme to attack crypto for its use for, you know, terrorism, funding terrorism and money laundering when we know like a majority of the money laundering and illicit finance occurs through the traditional banking system. But we have really these proposals from FinCEN are really overly broad, very vague, basically require exchanges and other service providers to provide a substantial amount of personal information about anyone they deem might be using any kind of tax identification number, wallet address. It's really, really extensive, like how much information they're requiring.
A highlight from ROLLUP: WSJ Lies About Crypto | SBF Testifies | Markets Pumping
"But the biggest mistake you can make at this point in the cycle is chasing the pump. So the advice that we have, the not financial advice, life advice, don't be a chaser, hold your high conviction, let the market come to you. Yes, let the pump come to you. Don't be needy, let the pump come to you. Yeah, you don't have to respect the pump, okay? That just means aping into stupid things. Let the pump come to you. Bankless Nation is the fourth Friday of October and the Friday, the roll up, might I remind you, right before Halloween, which means we do something special. David and I are in costume today, recording this roll up and I'm looking across the screen, looking at this co -host that I thought I knew. He's got suspenders on, he's got a yellow t -shirt. David, dude, you are one of your NFTs. You're the Solana NFT thing, right? I'm my mad lad, yeah. You're a mad lad today. I'm a mad lad today, yeah. I am my mad lad. If the podcast editors could put the mad lad on the screen. In fact, just put it right over Ryan's face so you can do the easy test for my mad lad versus me. I look exactly the same as my mad lad. It's actually really good, this is really good. My suspenders aren't actually clipped to anything, I'm wearing athletic shorts. The third year in a row that you have dressed up as your NFT. Yeah, I've only got one NFT left, so I need to buy another NFT after next year. Yeah, you're gonna buy some more this cycle. Okay, now do me, who am I? You are Sam Bankman -Fried, I didn't even need to ask. You're wearing a massive curly -haired wig and an FTX t -shirt, it's so simple. You need to gain a few pounds, but other than that. It's so perfect, actually, and do you wanna hear my Sam Bankman -Fried impression that I have prepared for you guys? I would like nothing left. Yeah, so I'm like, I'm gonna be taking the witness stand later today and explaining to the jury that from an EB perspective, I think we made the right calls. And that's what some of your listeners don't know, David. I think there's like, to some extent, to which one of the major exchanges in 2022 had to die and it just happened to be FTX. Kind of mid, kind of mid. That was pretty good, that was really good. Yeah, you're just not on enough amphetamines. I don't care how many pots of coffee you're on, and you're not matching him on - I'm not SPF energy? Well, I hope he brings the energy today. You're not vibrating like SPF was on our show. Well, that's actually a true story, though. So he is taking the stand today. I am taking the stand today. So this is not only a Halloween costume, this is, I don't have any solidarity with SPF. I don't wish him well, actually, but we'll see what happens today. You're commemorating the day. I'm commemorating the day, the day we took down one year. It's almost like a year ago that all of this happened. November 8th, I think, was the day. So next week will be one year since the fall of FTX. Yeah, I'm celebrating the outing of a fraud and the cleaning up of this space, which we've been doing a lot of over the last year. But tell us, what do we have for the agenda besides these fantastic costumes that we're sporting? In addition to all the things that we've already teased, we get to say welcome to Uptober, right? We got a double digit week this week. We were talking about it, it finally came. Everyone pat yourselves on the back, we got that. Bitcoin is up 15%. That feels great. Can we get it again? Okay, now the next question is, when is the next time that we get double digit weeks for two weeks in a row? Oh, two weeks in a row? One week's not enough for you? Like, can't we just bask for this? It's never enough, it's never enough. I wanna bask this week in enjoying this because this could mean the end of the bear market. Like, I feel like this could be a very significant week actually for us. We also have the Wall Street Journal blatantly lying, blatantly spreading misinformation about crypto, associating it with terrorism and failing to retract it. And journalist citizen and friend of the show, Nick Carter, is on their ass to do something about it. I love it, I love the facts coming out. So we're talking about that. What else we got, David? New York Attorney General charges DCG and Gemini for fraud. So while like Gemini was pointing at DCG and DCG was pointing at Gemini, the New Yorker Attorney General was like, you know what, we're taking both of you in. Both of you guys. Both of you guys, yeah. Just charges, so we'll talk about that. Like we're going inside, SPF about to testify. And also, a Uniswap app chain gets launched, but by whom? Who launched the uni chain? We will talk about that. I think that this is a great story that totally went under the radar this week. Ryan, did you know that the Uniswap app chain got launched? David, you are so excited about this. I think this is a great story and no one's paying attention to it. This is David's breaking news journalist here. I'm glad you, you have the journalist suspenders on. Breaking news, the Uniswap app chain got launched and Uniswap didn't deploy it and Uniswap Foundation didn't deploy it. Who deployed the uni chain? This is a bit tinfoil hat, but we'll definitely get to that later in the episode for sure. Before we begin, we got to shout out our friends and sponsors over at Dopple. Dopple? Yeah, so Dopple, not to be confused with Doppelganger, of which I am quite clearly SPF's Doppelganger today. I've always thought this, actually. SPF RSA, huh? Three letters, what's going on here? Yeah, something weird going, but people, you can't trust people who use their middle name as their main name. Anyway, something else you can't trust on the internet is all the phishing links that you get and Dopple plays whack -a -mole with all of the phishers. So David, we have started using this service as of about two months ago and they have done a fantastic job. Every time a phishing site, a fake bank list comes up or a fake Ryan Sean Adams account on Twitter or Instagram, you know what they do, David? They bang him. Yeah, they Dopple him right in the head. Dopple, Dopple. They just Dopple him right on the head and it's a fantastic service because there are more and more phishing scams and links going on and if you are a project, a dapp developer in the space of crypto, if you have a community, you need to protect your community or at least do what you can. Dopple is the service to go do that. They have something going on, I believe, for bank list listeners as well. A free trial, can you tell people about that? Yeah, a free limited time trial to bank list members. There's a link in the show notes to get started. Also dopple .com slash sign hyphen up. Overall, it's just like the scammers, the phishers out there are automated and so the manual reporting of counts is just not going to cut it. You need to fight fire with fire. You need to fight automation with automation. So this is what Dopple does. So if you're a project that has customer deposits, don't let Dopplegangers intercept your. Is that why they're called Dopple? Yes, of course. Of course, yeah. Dopplegangers intercept your customer's funds from going into your project. So you want TVL, don't let the Dopplegangers get your customer's TVL. Take it from the guy with the FTX shirt, okay? I know a thing or two about scammers. Stop.
A highlight from Will the WSJ Retract Their Bogus Crypto Terror Financing Reporting?
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, October 26th, and today we are talking about crypto Twitter versus the Wall Street Journal. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Well, friends, if you have been anywhere near crypto Twitter for the last couple of days, you know that there is a war going on. It is a proxy battle of our ongoing war with the Elizabeth Warren faction and Operation Choke Point 2 .0 that is specifically focused now on the Wall Street Journal. Now, the leader of our faction in this battle has been Nick Carter. Yesterday on October 25th, Nick did a quick recap of the situation which we'll use to start before we broaden things out. Nick writes, So just to recap, Wall Street journalists Angus Berwick and Ian Talley write a flurry of articles citing elliptic data claiming that PIJ, a Hamas affiliate, raised $93 million in crypto and cites BitOK claiming Hamas raised $41 million. Senator Warren uses this article to claim Hamas raised over $130 million in crypto. This article is her sole citation in her letter. The entire letter depends on the Wall Street Journal article. Over 100 members of Congress sign the letter, which asks for the Biden administration to further crack down on crypto. Chainalysis comes out with an article disputing the WSJ claims, saying that instead of $82 million of terror financing, the real figure is around $450K. It's unclear which wallets they are referring to. Either way, it looks like the Wall Street Journal analysis is vastly overstated. WSJ refuses to follow up or retract, instead writing more articles relying on their claims. Nick then asks a set of questions about where the BitOK report is and whether they stand by it, whether Elliptic was going to make a statement, and could Chainalysis confirm which WSJ claim they were responding to. When it came to the seriousness of this, Nick pointed out, Because this letter was signed by fully 20 % of the U .S. Congress and the entire thing relies on the WSJ article and it is directing the national security apparatus against the At the end of the day, if the WSJ analysis is correct, I want to know that. If it's false, it's a gigantic scandal and we absolutely deserve to know that. Bitcoin is money for enemies and yes, bad people will use it. We also have tools to interdict that and limit its use in illicit finance. We just deserve to know the truth, and none of the WSJ, Elliptic, nor BitOK are helping us find it out right now. For the sake of the entire industry, Elliptic needs to do the right thing and either defend the WSJ or refute them. So that brings us up to where we start our piece, which is that the firm in question here Elliptic published a blog post seeking to set the record straight on how Hamas was using crypto as a funding source. Elliptic had originally published in July that Israeli officials had seized crypto wallets containing $93 .7 million. The seizure order was targeting funds raised by Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which is another designated terrorist group. The initial report from Elliptic clearly stated that Now, this report was picked up by the Wall Street Journal, as you might have grokked by now, which used it as a source for an article published on October 10th, just days after the horrific attack in Israel. Entitled Hamas Militants Behind Israel Attack Raised Millions In Crypto, the article was fairly clear in its contention. It stated that Hamas's lightning strike on Israel last weekend has raised the question of how the group financed the surprise operation. One answer? Cryptocurrency. Now, of course, as you also heard and as you've no doubt already seen, that article was used as the basis for a letter from Senator Elizabeth Warren and over 100 of her congressional colleagues. The letter was sent to the White House and the Treasury demanding action on crypto's use in terrorism financing. The following day, however, Chainalysis published a blog post questioning the numbers contained in the original Elliptic report, and in particular, the way that they had been interpreted by the Wall Street Journal and Warren. Chainalysis noted that when Elliptic quoted the $93 million number, they were including funds held in an exchange wallet. According to blockchain forensics performed by Chainalysis, they found that only 450 ,000 of that larger sum was tied to wallets identified as belonging to terrorist organizations. The rest of that $93 million was presumed to be funds owned by innocent users of the exchange due to a lack of contrary information. Then from there, we waited. A week passed with no acknowledgement of this issue from Elliptic or the Wall Street Journal. And of course, as you've heard, this issue was a big deal to many in the industry. It appeared as though Elizabeth Warren was using a misinterpretation of blockchain analytics data to drum up support for her crypto anti -money laundering bill. That bill deals with on -chain KYC requirements and frankly isn't even related to the issue of exchanges servicing terrorist groups. Now, just a few hours after that viral tweet thread that you heard from Nick Carter a moment Elliptic released a blog post claiming that indeed the Wall Street Journal had misinterpreted their report. They wrote, The rest of the post explained how crypto had become an increasingly poor tool for terrorist financing with the rise of blockchain analytics. Elliptic noted the most public crypto financing campaign since the attack has been from pro -Homas news organization Gaza Now. The campaign has only raised $21 ,000 in crypto donations and most of those funds have already been frozen. Elliptic was unequivocal in calling out the misuse of their report, stating that as a significant source of funds for Hamas and other terrorist groups, but the data simply does not support this. No public crypto fundraising campaign by a terrorist group has received significant levels of donations relative to other funding sources. They explained that, Careful and detailed understanding of blockchain analysis is needed whenever approaching a nuanced and sensitive topic such as this. As for the Wall Street Journal and Elizabeth Warren, at the time of recording there has been no retraction or public statement. Ian Talley, one of the authors of the Wall Street Journal article acknowledged the outrage on Twitter but did not offer a retraction or admit that his article had been used in a misleading way by Warren. Instead, he doubled down, publicly standing by his reporting. Talley noted a few caveats that he had buried deep in the article, as if they were enough to offset the inflammatory headline. Throughout the article, Talley had used qualifiers attached to what we now know to be wildly inflated numbers based on no real evidence. For example, he wrote that PIJ received as much as $93 million in crypto. In his follow -up tweets, Talley seemed to be making the point that these minor caveats were enough to live up to journalistic standards, despite the inflammatory and misleading headline and opening paragraphs. Later in the evening, as the full weight of crypto Twitter descended upon him, which is to be fair, no easy thing to bear, Talley devolved into posting bizarre quotations which seemed at times to insult his critics for not being smart enough to read his article properly and understand its nuance. Of course, the Warren letter contained none of this supposed nuance, stating plainly, between August 2021 and this past June, Hamas and PIJ raised over $130 million in crypto. This false claim was wedged between two references of the Wall Street Journal article to give it an air of credibility. Today's episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still, too slow, only on for certain hours. Overly designed for some types of people, but not for others. Crypto, at its best, represents progress. It asks the question, what if? It invites people in instead of leaving them out. It's on 24 -7, 365, and moves at the speed of real life. Not everyone believes it, we've got our fair share of detractors, but that's the way it always is when you're building something new. Kraken is a crypto company that has been through the highs and lows of the industry, facing forwards towards progress throughout. And now they're inviting us to see what crypto can be.

"You You're against freedom Yeah, welcome to another episode of simply Bitcoin live or your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution Breaking news culture andmatic warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state is the bull market back Holy cow, I mean, I don't want to say it was a god candle But it was like from like 30 K to 35 K was absolutely crazy People were losing their minds Michael Saylor has officially been vindicated Absolutely bullish next cycle is gonna happen and it's gonna be an undeniable Fact that Michael sailors Bitcoin strategy was the right strategy and there's no amount of media spin misrepresentations propaganda That would that's gonna be able to cover up that fact And I think so many other public companies are just gonna follow suit because they're gonna realize You know I think it was Michael Saylor that even said this if they have Fiat and their students they're sitting on tons of fear on their balance sheet They're sitting on ice cubes, right? Imagine just holding a percentage of Bitcoin right, and of course, we know Bitcoin is deflationary that could compensate for the amount of purchasing power that they're losing because they're holding Fiat and This is gonna be an undeniable fact, which is why I'm so incredibly bullish for the next cycle in 2018 I never forget the one of the coping narratives was the Institutions are coming. That was a lie The institutions are here and when I'm talking about institutions, I'm talking about Franklin Templeton. I'm talking about fidelity I'm talking about BlackRock. They're all filing for for spot Bitcoin ETFs now the price pump is due to And I'll read you guys it so I don't butcher it but it's basically due to the iShares Bitcoin trust apparently being Listed on the depository trust and clearing corporations website now breaking news, which I'm sure People haven't covered this yet because this literally just happened Apparently that ticker has been removed from the website. So this morning it was on the website last night It was on the website Which I feel like is a big reason as to why the price pumped the way they did and now it's being removed But is it being removed because it's obviously apparent that you know, a lot of people bought the hype bought the news What is actually going on with the spot Bitcoin ETF and we have Hester Pierce and Hester Pierce is? Actually, she's a she's a commissioner on the SEC, right and she had some comments Yesterday on CNBC in regards specifically on squawk box in regards to The the Bitcoin ETF right? So there's clearly mounting pressure, right? We know from various sources whether that's Kathy would Caitlin long They're all saying it. I Mean we we had a suspicion when Nick Carter originally released his piece You know operation choke point 2 .0 when Caitlin Long's Bank got denied the federal banking charter when the White House was releasing like anti Bitcoin rhetoric and wording and the reports that they're releasing the reports released by the US Treasury We came to the inevitable conclusion that perhaps This ETF being delayed may be political right and it's awfully suspicious That literally the same month that Caitlin Long's bank got denied the federal banking charter to make her competitive with other make her competitive with other banks The Fed now was released so the American version of the central bank digital current currency So a lot of coincidences happening at the same time, but look regardless I don't think they're gonna be able to hold the floodgates For that much longer because clearly at this point, you know, of course, this is my opinion I can't know this for certain but it sure feels like they're delaying that ETF for political reasons At the same time yesterday's episode we covered the hoax article that was released by the Wall Street Journal which led Elizabeth Warren and a bunch of all other politicians to put pressure on the White House and Then that led to the FinCEN which is part of the US Treasury to release this insane Bitcoin regulation that they have proposed but it was all based on an on a false article Released by the Wall Street Journal if you guys want to know more about that We covered it in depth on yesterday's episode today's episode We're gonna cover exactly what the FinCEN has proposed Alright guys, no more delay before we jump into the show want to introduce my legendary co -host Catch them when he's sipping his coffee.
A highlight from 192 - Cryptodollars Are the New Eurodollars with Nic Carter
"Give us some of your predictions over the next three to five years. What's going to happen, do you think, in the world of stablecoins? Welcome to Bankless, where we explore the frontier of internet money and internet finance. This is how to get started, how to get better, how to front run the opportunity. This is Ryan Chon Adams, and I'm here with David Hoffman, and we're here to help you become more bankless. Crypto dollars are the new euro dollars. Okay, but what are euro dollars? We get into that in today's episode with Nick Carter. There's over $10 trillion of euro dollars out there, and our guest today, Nick, says crypto dollars are going to be even bigger. While stablecoins are often called crypto's killer app, our guest Nick says, you ain't seen nothing yet. A few takeaways in today's episode. Number one, why crypto dollars are growing even in the bear market. Number two, how crypto dollars are playing back the history and evolution of euro dollars and what we can learn from all that. Number three, how the US government policy is actually pushing crypto dollars offshore. Number four, the roadmap for stablecoins, what's going to happen next. And number five, we conclude with Nick Carter's top predictions for the next five years of crypto dollars, including his take on whether crypto dollar adoption is going to be good or bad for Ethereum and Bitcoin. That's a question we had to end with, David. Is this good or bad for our bags? Why was this episode significant to you? Why this episode is significant is the same as asking why are crypto dollars significant? And of course, using crypto dollars as interchangeable with what we know as stablecoins, euro dollars, therefore crypto dollars, I think we talk about the semantics behind this conversation with Nick. Stablecoins crypto dollars are an immense pillar of this industry. If there's one thing that crypto has exported, it's crypto dollars. That's one of the biggest innovations that we have. And this is something that we are going to rise in parallel with this technology that puts crypto one foot in TradFi and one foot in crypto, crypto finance. I think this is going to be a massive pillar of innovation that we should definitely be tapping into, because this is the way that all financial networks, bank networks inside of a nation state, all commercial banking layers inside of nation states get woven together by global blockchain infrastructure through crypto dollars, through stablecoins. So this is one of the big stories of crypto is we're all coming together as a population, one global population under the same financial fabric. And this is the story of crypto dollars starting to weave that fabric together first and foremost. And so understanding the growth of this parallel industry that we are creating, we are supporting, I think is very valuable to understanding just overall where crypto is going as a whole. Yeah, they're going to be a big deal. And it's kind of ironic in that, you know, crypto was here to kill fiat. No, actually, it's here to export to the world and also kill at the same time. How do we square these realities? So we talk about that with Nick, a fantastic episode for you. But before we get into this episode, first, we disclose David and I have nothing material to disclose in today's episode. There's always a link to our disclosures in the show notes. I own some stablecoins. If we owned a large supply of stablecoins, would we have to disclose that? I don't think so. Do they go up? You know, we own some stablecoins.

A highlight from SEC WON'T APPEAL GRAYSCALE BITCOIN ETF RULING & CALIFORNIA PASSES CRYPTO REGULATION!
"Welcome back to the thinking crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start off by talking about the grayscale SEC Bitcoin ETF situation. Yesterday, Friday, October 13 was the deadline for the SEC to appeal the court's ruling in the grayscale case. Now, we know the three judges destroyed scumbag regulator Gary Gensler and the SEC calling their denial of the grayscale Bitcoin spot ETF as arbitrary and capricious. But what can you expect? We're dealing with a scumbag corrupt regulator that is Gary Gensler, who is on puppet strings being controlled by Elizabeth Warren and the Wall Street incumbents who want to destroy crypto startups like grayscale, Coinbase, Ripple and others so that they can come in and take over the market. So the fact that the SEC did not appeal and we're past the deadline, obviously, is a good sign. It's bullish. It means the SEC does not see a way to win this. They are pretty much kowtowing here, right, which they have to the courts are ruling here. And even the folks at Bloomberg, James Safert, who I've had on the podcast, said, look, it's being reported here and confirmed by Bloomberg News that the SEC won't ask the court to reverse its decision on the Bitcoin spot ETF as it relates to grayscale. So what's going to happen next? It's going to be the SEC and grayscale are going to have their conversation started where they're going to discuss, I guess, how they're going to approve this and what else grayscale needs to do. Obviously, we're all waiting for this Bitcoin spot ETF approval to happen. I think the SEC is going to approve multiple at the same time. If they were to approve the BlackRock ETF ahead of everybody else, you know the game is completely rigged. We have some sense it is rigged, but if they do that, it will be really blatant. So I think they're going to approve multiple at the same time. However, this is my opinion. Look, we got world conflict happening. We still got inflation. We still got the Fed raising rates. Liquidity is low. We're still in the quantitative tightening cycle. I don't think now is a good time for this ETF to be approved, honestly. I think next year when things calm down, maybe near the Bitcoin halving would be a good time. The conflict ramps down, dies down. People are not as focused on it. Just normal human life and things go back to normal to a certain degree. Maybe the Fed is ramping down rate hikes or they have paused completely. They start QE. Liquidity is blowing back in. I think that will be the ideal scenario, but we'll see what happens. Maybe I'm wrong and they approve it sometime this quarter and maybe it does well, but we'll see what happens. The one thing I want you all to expect though, there's not going to be capital flowing in overnight into these ETFs. I think they have to be fully, the groundwork has to be set up. The marketing has to be there. Once again, people essentially wouldn't want to be focused on investing. Right now, people are not really focused on investing. I'm talking about the general public. Just keep that in mind. Now, speaking of the SEC, we have an update here as it relates to Coinbase versus the SEC. Paul Grewal, chief legal officer at Coinbase given updates on their response to the third circuit and it says here the TLDR, the SEC's unilluminating update is mere bureaucratic pantomime and confirms that nothing short of mandamus will prompt the agency to take its obligations seriously. We respectfully request an order to the SEC to act on Coinbase's rulemaking petition within 30 days. We appreciate the court's careful consideration of this matter. So remember the SEC filed their response and it was a bullshit letter. It pretty much was nothing in it. It was just a delay tactic. So I appreciate Coinbase putting the pressure. That's what we got to do. And we saw the judge already in these cases with Coinbase versus SEC is calling out the SEC saying like, what are you guys doing? What's a security? What's not a security? You approved Coinbase to go public. You knew what their business was. So what are you doing now? It's not like they're charging fraud on Coinbase. They're just saying you're selling unregistered securities, yet they won't say what is a security and what's not. Even the scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler, before Congress, can't even answer what's a security and what's not. It's ridiculous. We're dealing with a government agency that is funded by our tax dollars that doesn't abide by the law, that are hypocrites and liars. Even Judge Sarah Netburn in the Ripple lawsuit said the SEC lacks a fateful allegiance to the law. It's pathetic. But we got to keep putting the pressure on this corrupt scumbag bureaucrat and he will be exposed. He lost in the Ripple case. He lost in the Grayscale case. And I believe they're going to lose here with Coinbase. So I appreciate Coinbase, you know, putting the pressure and we got to keep doing the same thing. Contact our representatives, share the facts on social media and expose these lies. Now some good news, folks. And this involves Governor Gavin Newsom out of California. Now, whether you love Gavin Newsom or you hate Gavin Newsom, that is one thing. Let's put it to the side. That's a whole other conversation. But folks, California, they passed a crypto licensing bill, which is really good, folks. Gavin Newsom signed this yesterday. So here's the headline. Governor Newsom signs crypto licensing bill in California. Governor Gavin Newsom on Friday signed into law a measure that would regulate California's crypto industry, home to nearly a quarter of the blockchain companies in North America. This is being reported by Bloomberg Law. But I'm going to jump to another article here, which gives the full details because Bloomberg wants me to pay to read, which is annoying. So according to the report by Bloomberg Law, this first law aims to establish basic regulations for crypto companies operating in California, making them obtain state licenses and meet specific requirements related to reserves, disclosures and audits. The law also covers assets backed crypto currencies like USDC and USDT, so stable coins, making it mandatory for them to keep complete reserves, which would impact algorithmic stable coins that rely on different mechanisms to maintain their pegs. This crypto regulation bill was passed in August 2023, a year after Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed a prior version of the crypto bill stating that California needed a more flexible approach. So, folks, this is great, great news. It is logical, reasonable things. There's no overreach here. If you are a centralized exchange or a stable coin issuer, you have to have your reserves. You have to provide audits. You have to make sure you're abiding by the laws. We don't want any more FTX or Celsius things, no commingling, no lying, no pulling customer funds to go trade it, right? Like these idiots, Caroline Ellison and Sam Bankman Fried and even a scammer, Alex Mashinsky. No more of that nonsense. The industry needs to raise its standards. All exchanges decentralized need to be audited, whether it be monthly reporting or quarterly reporting it, sending it to the licensed agencies in the States and it's being reviewed, right? I think we can all agree with that. You can be a very pro -crypto person, very much into decentralized exchanges and defies, but we can't ignore that there's going to be centralized entities in the market. They need to abide by the law. They have to follow these best practices. We can't have what happened last year happen again. That was ridiculous, right? So this is a great move, great bill. And it's sad that the States have to do this and the federal government is not doing it, right? But the good thing here is that the States moving ahead will force the hand of the federal government because it's not just California. It's Wyoming, it's Texas, it's New York and many more are passing comprehensive regulations. So this is a really great move, really happy to hear about this. And obviously there's a lot of crypto companies in California, some like Ripple and others. So really, really big crypto regulation bill here, folks. And here's what Tim Grayson, who is an assembly member in California, tweeted out. He said, today, California is taking the necessary step to regulate a market that is volatile risky and in some cases deliberately rigged against everyday consumers. Thank you to Governor Newsom for helping ensure that our state leads in fostering responsible innovation. Folks, this is huge, huge, huge, huge. I can't, once again, I'm not endorsing Gavin Newsom here, so please, please don't get me wrong because California has a whole lot of problems and other things happening. But as it relates to crypto, this is a really great move. And I think game theory is going to play out. Other states are going to follow suit and follow the direction of California, which is one of the largest states, folks. So a move in the right direction. Now I want to highlight a great, responsible and safe exchange that is Uphold, which is a sponsor of this podcast. I've been a user of Uphold since 2018, so I can vouch for this platform. I've interviewed the CEO, the CFO and many folks over the years. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade 37 fiat currencies and precious metals on this platform and easily switch between crypto, fiat and precious metals. It's pretty cool. It's a unique platform. And once again, I can vouch for it because I use it. I use it for trading and much more. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. Now, folks, as we're talking about crypto regulations, we know Elizabeth Warren has her anti -crypto army. She's corrupt. She's, you know, three peas in a pod with Gary Gensler and Brad Sherman. We know she's been doing all kinds of nonsense. Well, there's news coming out here. Ryan Selkis said rumor is John Donenberg, Liz Warren's COS, is heading to the White House to replace Bharat Ramamurti. Bharat responsible was for making the admins deep crypto hostility. So talking about the Biden admin, some in D .C. told me to wait and see Biden soften with Bharat gone. If Donenberg is in, that won't happen. So we'll see. Here's what Caitlin Long, who's battling the Fed right now, said. She said, yes, as Novogratz, Mike Novogratz said, Senator Warren is driving the Biden administration's bus on crypto policy. Biden cut that deal with her long ago. And that's why she gets to a place or gets to place her people at the White House in key agency positions. This was an open secret in D .C. And it's now no longer a secret. P .S., where is the press on Biden's Warren deal to let her pick White House economic staff and financial services appointees? This has been an open secret pretty much since Operation Choke Point 2 .0 began in January. And I haven't seen it reported yet. Any ideas? Ryan Selkis and Nick Carter, she said, and Novogratz, I think you said in an interview on stage at Mainnet that Warren's senior staff didn't agree with her. Let's hope John is among those you are alluding to now that he's at the White House. Folks, we shall see what happens. My hope is that Biden overall losing popularity and with different things economically and, you know, Elizabeth Warren going crazy over crypto and the industry fighting back and Gary Gensler taking losses in court, you know, take some wind out of her sales. It's Senator Elizabeth's sales here and take some power away from her. And maybe the people Biden has around him, you know, who are anti -crypto get kicked out. You know, we can see next year is a election year. So we'll see what happens. Maybe things soften up. The Bitcoin spot ETF gets approved. You know, I think we're moving maybe out of the eye of the storm with this operation choke point. We'll see. You know, I think the court law losses for Gary Gensler really help the causes here. Even with Caitlin Long, the court denied the Fed's request to throw out her lawsuit against them. So the lawsuit is proceeding. It's going to discovery. So these anti -crypto people are getting exposed. And, you know, we hope Elizabeth Warren, her corrupt ass gets exposed as well. Now, the IRS is also putting out some crypto tax rules, which the industry are trying to push back on. So here's the headline. Coinbase tax had calls on IRS to revise crypto tax rules. The IRS is proposed tax rules hinder digital asset growth by exposing restrictions that question their utility. Coinbase is VP of tax wrote Thursday. So great to see the industry is pushing back in a letter disclosed on Thursday. Lawrence Zlakten, if I'm saying that right, a Coinbase's vice president of tax criticized the proposed regulations for imposing an unprecedented, unchecked and unlimited tracking on the daily lives of Americans. In August, the IRS issued a 300 page proposal that revises the definition of a broker in accordance with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, including crypto exchanges, which provides guidelines on tax compliance for both the brokers and their clients. Now, many of you may recall the infrastructure bill situation with this, and we're still fighting this. So I'm glad the industry is pushing back. And, you know, these things are not set in stone fully yet. So we have an opportunity to push back and we're seeing more pro crypto governors and congressmen and lawmakers and so forth, even presidential candidates. So we got to keep pushing. We got to keep fighting. And, you know, where we need to rally and call up our representatives and send letters and emails and tweet and whatever we got to do, we will do that. But good to see that folks at Coinbase are pushing back. Now, we've got news here that Taurus expands crypto footprint after Deutsche Bank linked up. So the crypto infrastructure firm Taurus that partnered with Deutsche Bank last month is set to announce more large partnerships with banks soon, exec says. Now, I remember recently Deutsche Bank said they were going to launch crypto custody and they were they're doing this with Taurus. So Switzerland based Taurus, which offers infrastructure to issue custody and trade crypto tokenized assets and NFTs is opening offices in London and Paris. The firm says it expects more of the region's banks listen to this folks to wade into the crypto space as the regulatory environment becomes more clear. Folks, that's music to my ears. And they're talking about the EU here, right? Because both the EU and the UK have passed crypto regulations. Now, if only we could have that in the United States. Right. Where where are the members of Congress? Where's the federal government on this? So the expansion is part of a bid to better serve institutions that will soon have to comply with the Markets and Crypto Assets Regulation, the MICA law, the European Union Parliament passed the framework in April with implementation expected next year. So great, great news, folks. Very bullish. And let me give you some more details. So Jurgen Hoffbauer from saying that right previously towards his global head of strategic partnerships will lead the London office. He spent more than 10 years at Bank of America, where he served as head of sales for Europe and Middle East and Africa. Folks, a lot of the legacy banking TradFi folks are coming to crypto and they're helping to build out the crypto infrastructure for institutions. And of course, you know, they know there's money to be made here. They know this is the future and they're doing it. And this is why we have to be patient. This is why we dollar cost average. We study the market cycles. We look at what these big players are doing, not what they're saying, but what they're doing. And we are positioning ourselves to take profits as the value of our tokens rise. Right, folks? So we have to exercise patience. Taurus raised 65 million dollars in a February funding round led by Credit Suisse. Deutsche Bank also took part in that round and German megabank linked up with Taurus last month to build out their digital asset custody and tokenization services. Wow, folks, I hope you see what's happening here. And this thing is global. It's not specific to United States. So while Elizabeth Warren acts the fool with the clown Gary Gensler here and delaying and causing all kinds of nonsense, the rest of the world is moving forward. And the great thing about this market, it's borderless. You can be in any part of the world. I've said many times you have a smartphone, you have Internet access and you can be part of the asset class. You can buy a fraction of Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, whatever it is. You can put as little as 10 bucks in each. Right. And you are part of the asset class. And that's something they cannot stop. They would love to. They would love to gate keep it like they have historically and put the borders and say, oh, you have to go through Wall Street and you have to be an accredited investor. Right. They would love to stop that so they can control it. That's why they're fighting so hard. That's why this corrupt Elizabeth Warren. This is a big thing for her. That's why Gary Gensler is doing all the things he's doing. They want to control it, but they can't. The disruption is at their doorstep. They can't stop this thing. They're going to put up roadblocks. Don't get me wrong. Like they're doing, they're slowing us down to causing a bit of confusion. But this train has left the station. They ain't going to stop it. Now, got some news here that Texas County settles lawsuit over wrongful seizure of fifteen thousand dollars from Bitcoin ATM. The lawsuit also aimed to have the court recognize Bitcoin Depot as the lawful owner of the seized money. So I've interviewed the CEO of Bitcoin Depot and this is an interesting case here. So authorities in McClellan County have settled a lawsuit with Lux Vending operating as Bitcoin Depot following the wrongful seizure of fifteen thousand dollars from one of its Bitcoin ATMs. The lawsuit was dismissed after the county acknowledged the funds were improperly confiscating following a scam that targeted an 82 year old Crawford woman. Local media reported Thursday the scam was reported by the elderly victim who was deceived into withdrawing fifteen thousand dollars in cash and depositing it into a Bitcoin machine. This reportedly followed her falling victim to a ransomware attack initiated by a malicious email link. Legal action had originally been filed against the county investigators for allegedly violating due process. They had obtained a warrant to seize the funds from Bitcoin Depot kiosk located at a court recognized Bitcoin Depot as a as the lawful owner of the of the seized money. McClellan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara, who had previously stood by his the actions of his officers, declined to comment on the lawsuit's resolution or on Judge Scott Felton's admission that the funds had been seized erroneously. KWTX News reported. So interesting case happening here. And, you know, one of the layers here I want to highlight is that crypto is becoming a big part of society in the mainstream and the average everyday things that may occur, whether it be crime, whether it be just different things in life. Right. That happens that we don't control or had nothing necessarily to do with crypto that it's popping up in cases and all forms of regulations and law now need to be developed around it. So that's a great sign of adoption. I'm not saying what happened to this lady is a great right. Obviously, that's another issue with malware and scammers and elder abuse and all these things. But in the sense of adoption and this being part of the society, just as the Internet became part of a society and there were bad things that followed that, but obviously a lot of great things. Right. Same thing is happening here. So it's pretty, pretty interesting. I like to look at these things from a psychological macro societal human behavior standpoint, because it also tells a story of the direction we're headed. And are people moving away from this or are they adopting it? Is it becoming more prominent in our daily lives? And I think we're seeing that for crypto and block chain. Now, I just want to end it here by highlighting one of the partners of the podcast that I and it's a platform I use, Merlin, which allows you to track your crypto exit strategy in a very easy and safe way. Merlin allows you to tie in all your exchanges and ledger data. It does not capture your seed phrases or anything like that. It simply just takes a snapshot of your account and allows you to set your exit strategy. Which price points? I've been doing stuff like this on spreadsheets. It's super tedious and manual. And I've always been looking for some sort of solution. And Merlin is that solution, folks. So I'll be using this for the next bull market. So let's say for my XRP or Ethereum or Bitcoin, I'll set certain price points. Hey, I want to take 30 percent of my chain link or XRP at this price and I can set it in the Apple. Let me know right away, folks, on which exchange it hit that price and I can go right away and execute accordingly. So this is something that will make your life easy and you don't have to be constantly refreshing on coin market cap or, you know, going back and forth between a spreadsheet. So this is one of the reasons I'm highlighting it as a partner, because I'm using this platform and it's great. It's easy, it's safe and that you can plug in, uphold, you can plug in ledger, Coinbase, whatever it is. It is a great platform, folks. So be sure to check out Merlin. Link will be in the description. Go check it out. You can get a 30 day free trial, see if you like it and go from there. Thank you all for listening. Thank you for your support. Hit the thumbs up button, hit the five star rating on the podcast platform and I'll talk to you all later.
What the History of Inflation Tells Us Today
"Is with money otherwise known as the economy. And when crazy things happen, like predictable inflation, when you print trillions of dollars of money, you don't have which guys like me and Peter Schiff and others have been turning warning about forever. I'm not surprised but it's amazing the administration spin job to try to cover this stuff up. Well, the inflation cascade is not over. It's not even close to over now. I was born in 1974. So the dreadful inflation of the late 70s and early 80s. I'm not going to sit here as a 48 year old and pretend to you I had a deep understanding of it when I was six. However, I can read and I do remember living through it with my mother other where things were kind of ugly. The Carter years were not fun. Neither were the late number of people had those whip inflation buttons or whatever they were with inflation like that was going to do it by a button that will take care of it. No, you don't want to take care of it. Don't print a lot of money. Folks, if you go back study and the history of what happened with inflation. This is important right now for your wallet. The same thing happened. We tried this thing where we took some temporary measures to kind of dry up the by a little bit. Then we backed away and inflation came back and then we should be dried supply up the money again a little bit. Then inflation came back again when we dialed it back. You're seeing that right now. I don't believe this Federal Reserve has the guts to do what needs to be done. But more importantly, because it's not specifically a Federal problem, Reserve it is. It's part of it. The administration doesn't have the guts to needs do what to be done, which is control spending and use the economy on a productivity side so you can produce more stuff to suck up the money. This isn't hard. What crushed inflation? Ronald The Reagan years, where they juiced the economy and got GDP growth up to
A highlight from Preseason Begins & The Annual GM Survey
"This is the crossover NBA podcast Chris Mannix joined as I always am by Chris Herring and Rohan Nadkarni. Quick housekeeping note fellas the NBA preview issue is out I guess the basketball preview issue because there is a lot of college stuff in there as well but the cover is NBA Jimmy Butler guest editor for this NBA preview issue Rohan you spent some time with Jimmy Butler in parts unknown I assume South Florida did a a story with him it's excellent check that out I've got a piece on the Phoenix Suns spent some time talking to Matt Ishbia James Jones Frank Vogel key pieces of that organization trying to recreate exactly what happened after the season ended how they got this point where they have one of the most expensive teams in NBA history a lot of good stuff there scouting reports different elements as well make sure you pick up the magazine on stands right now. So fellas we've got the NBA GM survey that's out and I want to dive into some of the elements of that but before we start recording this podcast I was just going through social media looking up some clips and all that stuff and I came across one from the Pat Bev pod the Patrick Beverly pod he does with Barstool Sports I just want to play this clip for you because Pat Bev was joined by Michael Rubin the former owner of the Philadelphia 76ers now this still the CEO with fanatics someone who has a strong relationship with a lot of players including James Harden who they discussed in this clip here as a past NBA owner obviously you're close to the Sixers the situation that's going on with James Harden how would you handle it it wouldn't have happened you know first of all James is family to me and like I'm not going to hide about that I love James this thing is breaking my heart this thing was just not handled well he was playing with us in practice and boy he was cooking he was oh I'm talking about the pot was out and he was stirring that bitch up there's nobody who wants to win a championship more than James Harden I know this guy like my brother people give James a hard time because you know he likes to have fun it's bullshit like the guy the guy's work ethic for basketball is insane and his attitude has been great he's been leading he's been giving advice so you might hear all the bad shit you know TV from reporters that's not there but actually being a teammate that's there he's he's been phenomenal I block out the noises really same because I think a lot of people just don't know like the real James Harden how badly he wants to win I think he's in great not good shape he's in great shape yeah he's in great shape right that's right body looks great yeah every time I'm in the weight room he's in the weight room he's gonna ball out this year so herring I know my blood shouldn't boil when I hear stuff like this and I know it you know the podcast is doing its job if it gets me kind of drawn in and talking about it but to hear Michael Rubin say that James Harden wants to win a championship more than anyone at the same time that James Harden is trying to force his way off a championship contender that is a Rubik's Cube of nonsense that I'm really having a hard time wrapping my head around your thoughts on the propaganda emerging from the Pat Bev pod about James Harden I'm just trying to think of a stranger mashup than the one you just explained I mean the the whole universe of Michael Rubin and all the there's so many things lately that just on social media that I've wanted to mute and I don't think I know enough about how to do it I haven't taken the time to do it but if I had a way of muting like Michael that Rubin parties James Harden and any other number of athletes are at or like all these white parties and everything else it's like I would do that but that makes this element of this story this this framing odd because it's like okay well he presumably is friendly with James Harden or James Harden is friendly with him but also the fundamental standpoint now at this point that maybe there are people in the organization that instead of kind of just gloves off which it seemed like it would be based on what James Harden said about Daryl Morey earlier this summer that there's also the very real possibility that maybe he's not traded and so they need him to feel wanted and they need him to feel like they want him to perform well which is what you would want if you're a team that at least there's a you said in one of the last pockets we did it's not out of the realm of possibility that they could be a winner a contender a champion if everything fell right you know the right way so I think that's all this is is just positive reinforcement but I mean it's also silly from the standpoint that you're saying that clearly people that are making trade demands whether it's behind the scenes whether it's publicly whether it's saying my general manager my president is a liar it's hard to hold those two thoughts in the same time in your head that you know on the one hand he can say those things but also nobody wants it more than he does come on like I did I know it's just you know the first thing probably that popped into Ruben's mind but it's just silly Rowan I know you're you're a regular at these white parties but do you have a issue let me just first of all echo my esteemed colleague Chris herrings fatigue with Michael Rubin just this guy's everywhere all the time fanatics sucks I'll say it fanatics is not good wow let's start there I mean like kudos to Michael Rubin you know what he did getting involved with meat mill etc but like we could have left it at that listen I if I were James Harden I might be living my life a similar way I let me put it that way but there is now a what is it a preponderance of evidence that winning a championship is not necessarily number one on this guy's priority list just not only in terms of how he's carried himself this offseason but how he likes to carry himself during the season when he's staying in Miami or Vegas for an extra night I'm away from steam mates are flying separately etc that all that stuff's been reported I'm just I'm sick of the the Sixers offseason I'm sick of the Embiid hard in partnership I respect you Mannix for still holding out hope having faith you've always been kind of an optimist a wanderer a dream I died that's why I don't describe you but I'm just so over this it just well like you said I mean respect to that podcast we're here talking about it I love Pat Bev he's a good personality but like what are we doing here Michael Rubin who are you who are you fooling okay we are familiar with James Harden's game okay you're not fooling us game off the court specifically right like you you can't say James Harden is misunderstood or gets a bad rap when right he he forced his way out of Houston by throwing a multi -week temper tantrum he effectively quit on the Nets which forced them to make a when deal they probably didn't want to and now here he is trying to get out of Philadelphia after holding you know one of the worst holdouts in holdout history to stay away from the team it just the the I mean just trying to get us to believe that is just wild so you know we had to talk about it you know James Harden still officially member of the 76ers we'll see what happens as these preseason games go on and what they do with them but right now James Harden kind of between a rock and a hard place might have to play for Philadelphia this season so I want to talk in this episode about the GM survey which always provides good preseason material whenever it comes out and there were some interesting elements in this year's GM survey guys and I want to start with the championship prediction from the NBA GMs which turned into a two -way tie between the Boston Celtics and the Denver Nuggets Milwaukee coming into third place 23 % Phoenix 7 % they came in fourth in the LA Clippers finishing at 3 % last year the Bucks were the leader at 43 % Denver doesn't surprise me Denver has the core of that team back we've talked about this before I think they can expect some organic growth from Christian Brown I think Peyton Watson might be able to play they've some other guys on that roster that can take steps up by the way while we're speaking of the Nuggets condolences to Mike Malone's family for the passing of Brendan Malone his father that was revealed by the organization this week but when it comes to Denver on the floor I can see why they'd be a championship contender the Celtics I might be one of the few pessimists I don't know if I'm pessimistic about the South I have more questions about the Celtics than many people do my good friend Scalabrini was on TV recently and he said every GM would want this roster and I tend to agree with that sort of because if you could bubble wrap this roster and guarantee that it plays 65 to 70 games together and will be healthy going into the playoffs I think you're absolutely right I think the backcourt is really strong especially defensively Drew Holliday elite defender Derek White big time defender we know what Jalen Brown Jason Tatum can do you know that that that speaks for itself the front court is good right Chris has Porzingis good player Al Horford good player but Porzingis chronically injured right like he played what 60 -65 games last year but that was a contract year and I have less confidence he's going to be able to repeat that he was already injured this off season with whatever happened with his foot over in the World Cup Al Horford's 37 by design he's probably only going to play like 50 games this year because they want to keep him healthy for the playoffs so we don't know what's what Al Horford is going to look like at the end of this season after that what is there they signed Wennion Gabriel Wennion Gabriel last year played 68 games for the Lakers in the playoffs he played 10 he averaged 3 .7 minutes per game in the playoffs with the Lakers last year that is the definition of playable in the regular season and unplayable in the playoffs like it just is what it is Luke Cornette is still there he was unplayable for Boston in the playoffs last year you know this is a team that was already thin when Grant Williams was there now Grant Williams is gone and I don't know what they do if one of these two guys goes down for any length of time so that's a long way of saying like yeah I can buy the argument that the Celtics are the team to beat Eastern Conference I can buy the argument that they are a championship contender but Rohan I just I have a lot of concerns about what happens if anything goes south in that front court I agree I mean that's why I thought the holiday trade was so fascinating and why I wasn't sure how seriously to take Boston as a contender for holiday even though his name was obviously their name was obviously coming up that entire weekend before he was traded a huge reason why they've been been special the last few years is kind of the alchemy of their front court mix -in matching Horford, Rob Williams, and Grant Williams that's gone entirely I see people saying now Porzingis and Horford might start together this talks about does Derek White come off the bench there's a right that's another thing I don't understand I mean you don't you don't have a backup really for either guy right now why aren't they backing up each other that already is starting to not make a ton of sense for me the way I look at it Mannix is I do think we're starting to see some trickle -down effect of the second apron because you look at the top teams right now whether it's Milwaukee, Boston, Phoenix, Denver to an extent it's not that the championship teams of yesteryear were flawless but we're looking at teams that are especially top heavy these days and Boston doesn't have a lot of avenues to improve the roster same for Milwaukee I mean I think Milwaukee has a great five and uh Holliday, Conaton, Middleton, Giannis, and Lopez but then they have Bobby Portis and they have a bunch of question marks after that they don't have a lot of playoff rotation guys uh Phoenix is in a similar boat Denver I think you and I are probably high on Denver's bench than most people we like what we think Peyton Watkins can do Peyton Watson can do Zeke Najee Swarther had a nice pre -season debut but those are a bunch of question marks for them right now so on one hand I echo your skepticism about Boston only in terms of Horford's coming off the worst postseason of his career um I think on both ends of the floor and he's only getting older Porzingis he's played 10 playoff games in his life but when you match them up against kind of the other contenders unless you think like a team like the Lakers or Warriors who have a little bit more depth maybe not quite as much top and talent uh can make a push I understand why you'd put Boston there only because I think a lot of the contenders are really top heavy right now well I mean but the the front court like to get out of the Eastern Conference you gotta get through Milwaukee and Milwaukee's front court is still really strong they still have all the pieces that were in place they still got Giannis still got Brook Lopez still got Bobby Portis they've still got all the guys that have the potential to give Boston a lot of problems and I go back a couple of years and the Celtics back when they had Rob Williams and they had Grant Williams they were in the mix for Yaka Purdle when San Antonio was trying to deal him they wanted to get Purdle they didn't want to get two first -round draft picks back then but they knew back then when they had you know three you know strong front court guys that they needed one more to get through Milwaukee that was when they made the deal for Mike Mascala and he turned out to be unplayable in the playoffs as well so I have concerns about Boston's front court anything about the predictions hearing concern you or you know stand out to you whether it's the Celtics or somebody else I mean I can admit to the same thing you guys are saying that I was surprised that Boston was tied for first for just you know the team that GM's thought was the most likely to win the whole thing it's really hard for me to look at this roster without wincing just a little bit we all can acknowledge that there's a lot of top and talent in this team there was before the moves they made this summer there is now the Porzingis fit is interesting I think everybody can look at that and say wow that if this works out they can win a title obviously no one's denying that it's just to have him and Horford as your two centers and then Wendy and Gabriel who I really like but I don't think of as necessarily my second or third string center or you know if he's even a center he's like six nine or whatever he is so that's all it's just you know and look I've been critical of the Celtics from the standpoint of you're trading away a lot to get Porzingis if only you're talking about Marcus Smart from the standpoint of you know a backbone a heart and soul obviously a very versatile important defender within that cog that they have defensively so they go get Drew Holliday and I think it does kind of answer a lot of those questions a lot of those criticisms but I just I still wonder a little bit of if now you're doing that and in doing that you give away Robert Williams if it makes you thinner at the spot that I was most concerned about now you know it's center even when they had those three it was kind of a weird hodgepodge of guys that you're not for any reason you're not gonna feel comfortable about whether they can hold up and be healthy the whole year also stylistically if you're missing one of guys it changes the way your offense looks because two of them are guys that can shoot from three one is a guy that's kind of more around the rim and setting screens and stuff like that so anyway I was just a little bit surprised that as we're all acknowledging the potential thinness of this group that they would be a co -favorite here I think the Nuggets still deserve to be the favorite and I personally would probably take the Bucks over the Celtics as a favorite but but all that said you know I don't think there's a runaway team here after the Nuggets I would probably leave them at number one because there was a lot of other stuff that happened between the depth of the Lakers the top end stuff of the Celtics the top end stuff of the Bucks to me when I see that much stuff happening I'm just going to defer to the team that won last year that granted they did lose some things but they have the potential to get better with more continuity of the top end guys that they have that haven't been healthy up until last year so I would you know I was a little bit surprised to see that Boston pulled into a tie with Denver among the GMs well we as we know the Boston media mafia is working over time in these kinds of situations I'm kidding I know it was the GM survey one thing I want to throw out there is in a in kind of a funny twist like the Celtics have had the best Joel Embiid defender over the years in Al Horford and Horford was giving Embiid problems in the semis last year to the point where Tucker had to get in his face and be like bro you need to take this matchup but what does Boston do now in that matchup because if you're playing Horford against Embiid does that mean you're playing Porzingis and Horford together and which of your guards are you keeping off the floor does that mean you keep Derek White off the floor it's kind of an interesting problem they've created for themselves unless they're willing to live with Porzingis on Embiid but that kind of takes away one of the biggest strengths they've had in that matchup over the years yeah is it going to be a challenge for them because Horford has been excellent I mean Embiid he gives him so many problems he clearly has the timing down on Embiid like he does he knows yeah it's fat it's fantastic to watch he pushes him off his spots he's he's just got a lot of you know and maybe some of it's mental too like Embiid's seen him so many times over the years that it's like all right well Al Horford again and you know he's asked about every single postseason he's had great games against Horford don't get me wrong he's played really well at times but it is I have a little surprise guys that the team nobody's really in on the Suns yet seven percent seem a little low for me you know man look I understand maybe Herring you got to give this team time to figure itself out and see if these guys can play together and see if this mix of players can work but you know if that team gets the playoffs fully healthy hard to stop very hard to stop in the postseason no no question I mean you know I watched clips I watched bits of the the game that they played against the Pistons and granted it's the Pistons you know one of the youngest teams in the league but to watch the Suns who you know have just started playing together that you know have 80 points between the first and the third quarter of a road game road opener for preseason there's obviously a lot of potential there offensively I would say that as we talk the things we like and dislike about teams the thinness the depth of these rosters I'm a little bit surprised that the Suns haven't done a little bit more to go out and get a a bonafide point guard I think it's a big granted you have a lot of ball handling on that roster it's not to say you don't and top level guys that can do it but it's a big change to go from having Chris Paul be your point guard and even to have campaign be your backup point guard to then going and just saying we're you know we're going to kind of take the Clippers route to have our forwards handle the ball to have Devin Booker handle the ball again all guys that can do it but these are also guys that you like to just kind of throw in iso situations you don't want to wear them down the whole season of having them handle the ball so I they've added depth and I think they need that they obviously needed it last offseason or I'm sorry last postseason and so they've done well to add to that but I think that they still it would do them well to have even if it's you know I look at something like what the Bulls did they went and got Javon Carter someone that played for the Suns at one point the sort of guy that could really be helpful to this team I also wonder just a little bit just a little and I think I saw some of this in their first preseason game as well Yusuf Nurkic is an interesting fit I think he can do good things for them he's good you know as a playmaker here and there defensively I worry just a little bit about him of how big it seemed like he took in Portland and you know for all the problems Ayton has at times I wonder if he's more nimble defensively and would work better defensively with that team but we'll see we'll see what happens I think that the Suns absolutely could win it they absolutely have the talent and skill to do it I think they have you know a coach that I really like one of my favorites in league and Vogel but I definitely have some questions about them which is why again would still take Denver head and shoulders above everybody else for now I actually am a little bit surprised the Lakers didn't get more picks here as well in this in the survey I maybe would have liked the Suns more before the Nurkic trade I'm just I'm replaying that Denver series in my head and while Landry Shammet was getting a ton of open threes and theoretically that could be Bradley now I mean I look at them as even worse or you know more poorly equipped to slow down the Nuggets than they were last year and while we're on the subject of health I mean Durant you know he missed some time obviously he came back right before the start of the playoffs and looked great at times and I think bookers only continue to improve but I mean there's a health there's a health question mark hanging over them you know as long as Durant is there and I I need to see it I mean there's definitely some exciting moments just watching kind of Beale Booker and Durant take their turns in that preseason game and it's like oh man like they have three guys who can go just iso and get a score seemingly anytime they want but and I'm I'm warming to the Nurkic move more than when it first happened but I really need to see that defense in action for a little while before I can take them seriously as a title contender yeah I think you guys just articulated why they only got seven percent of the vote there's a lot of question marks out there about them until we see them actually come together and play all right we had Nicole Jokic picked up first place in two different categories and I want to talk about both of them first was the player most likely to win the 2023 -24 MVP he got 43 percent of the vote in that category Yanis at number two at 20 percent and then if you were starting a franchise today and could sign any player who would it be he got 33 percent of the vote in in that category Victor Webayama coming in second with 23 percent on the subject of MVP guys let's start there 43 percent of the vote I'm actually shocked it wasn't higher like I thought it would be like 70 percent because not look first he's 28 years old he's in his prime he's durable he's just won a championship he was you know the best player on the best team in the NBA there's no reason to believe he's not going to come in next year and put up comparable or this year put up comparable numbers and I do think that the people that were divided on Nicole Jokic last year are not going to be divided this year the people that were skeptics about his ability to win and use that against him when it came to MVP voting and use that as a reason to vote for Joel Embiid those people aren't going to exist or that feeling isn't going to exist if Nicole Jokic puts up MVP numbers on the guy on the team that is at or near the top of the western conference there is no doubt in my mind he is going to win MVP he is going to get deservedly I think every benefit of the doubt this year when it comes to MVP votes so whether it's you know Embiid, Giannis, Jason Tatum, Luka Doncic I think Jokic is going to get the benefit of the doubt there Herring I think he's going to be by far and away he is by far and away the front runner to win the MVP.

Many people look at Bitcoin and crypto as something that is new, risky, fad, maybe even risky business. But what if I were to tell you that NGOs and government organizations within the United States government have been working on this creation since 1974? Bitcoin's elaborate design and mysterious beginnings leave many questions for the casual speculator. Who created Bitcoin? Is it able to be hacked? And if what I'm about to lay out for you is to be true and the US government is in fact the creator of this monumental tech, why would the powers that be give life to a direct competitor of the world reserve currency, the US dollar? The earliest accounts of systems of the past paving the road for Bitcoin first emerged in 1974. A publication of a protocol for packet network intercommunication was published by Vinton G. Cerf. Cerf's research notably was supported by DARPA. Kind of weird, right? His work laid the foundation for many core concepts used in Bitcoin, including packet switching, routing, and error corrections. These concepts allowed for the creation of what we know now as Bitcoin in the decentralized network that can transmit data reliably and efficiently. Specifically, Bitcoin uses packet switching to break down data into small chunks that can be transmitted over the network independently. This allows for a more efficient use of the bandwidth and makes the network more resilient to attacks. Bitcoin also uses routing to determine the best way to send that data from one node to another, and this ensures that the data is delivered quickly and reliably as possible. Finally, Bitcoin uses error correction to ensure that the data is not corrupted during transmission without the concepts laid out in the Cerf and Khan publication, it would have been much more difficult to create Bitcoin as it is today in the decentralized digital currency. As you can see on this timeline, many different publications and developments from then have all been aimed at the same goal, immutable, secure, and direct transactions. Around 1996, things heated up in the advancement of this tech with a publication from Tatsuwaki Okamoto of the NSA. This publication was labeled How to Make a Mint, the Cryptography of Anonymous Cash. This peer -to -peer translation system mirrored the exact intentions of what was laid out in the Bitcoin whitepaper later on by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. The similarities of both the work done and the name were recently highlighted by Nick Carter, sparking theories of a potential connection. There is a connection that is indisputable between Bitcoin and the NSA, and that is the connection to the U .S. government and Bitcoin's architecture, SHA -256. The NSA has a long history developing cryptographic algorithms, and SHA -256 is one of its most successful creation. It's a cryptographic hash function that is used to generate a unique fingerprint for any piece of data. SHA -256 is used in a variety of applications in primarily Bitcoin mining. So if the government did create such a tool and eventually deployed it into society as a form of currency, financial thefts would become nearly impossible, tax evasion non -existent, and a clear picture on the true velocity of the U .S. dollar would be available to governments all around the world. The United States is nearing what is feared to be the end of its lifecycle right now, as commerce and day -to -day transactions continue to move online and the dollar's buying power continues to diminish from out -of -control government spending and printing, the curtains seem as if they are about to close on the empire of the United States. The government and DARPA have likely seen this coming decades ago, particularly beginning in the 70s once Nixon's gold standard rug pull shocked allied nations across the world into realizing that the U .S. was headed for a spending spree for decades to come. The perfect escape out of all this mess for the U .S. and a chance to avert the overall loss of control around world trade as BRICS countries dump U .S. treasury holdings would be to create a seemingly borderless transaction system that garners the trust of the entire world once again. What do you think we are seeing right now as the Pentagon warns U .S. lawmakers that we are running low on funds for a war in Ukraine? Why are they so intent on pissing Russia and China off until all hell breaks loose? Think about it, kick off an economic shutdown followed by a conflict with the leads of BRICS over the control of the worldwide chip production and then usher in Bretton Woods 2 .0. Once all the dust has settled around the world, countries that are still in existence are going to look for direction and as nature abhors a void, they will choose the leader. This Bretton Woods moment will likely have the same result. The chosen nation to lead the world as an example of prosperity. But this time, the currency will not be backed by gold but instead by a basket of currencies including DARPA and the NSA's decades old technology, Bitcoin. BlackRock, Vanguard, and State Street, the real controllers of America, see these threats coming and are getting ready for it. These giants of finance are already holding ownership of America's largest Bitcoin mining companies, crypto exchanges, and soon direct spot Bitcoin ETFs. Why wouldn't Uncle Sam want to keep control of the dollar as the Phantom of the Opera? To think that the government as a whole simply doesn't understand this technology is a fool's notion. The misinformed leaders that are touted on television are a distraction. Bitcoin is the future.

A highlight from S13 E16: Oliver: Writer, Producer, and Novelist Spotlight
"Hello, welcome to The Loney Show. I'm your host, John Mayolone. In this episode, don't have regulars, because raisins, as always, unfortunately. As for our guest, he's from Portland, Oregon, currently living in Los Angeles, California, and he is a film producer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Oliver Tutill Jr. Well, thank you, Peter. It's actually Ted Hill Jr. But thanks for having me on your show. I'm excited to be here. Anytime. So, how's life? It's good. It's really exciting. I love the film business. I've been in the business for quite a while. And it's very exciting meeting different people, talking to different producers, actors, filmmakers, editors, composers, business financing. It's all very exciting. You meet a lot of very interesting people that are very involved in their work and are very creative. Ah, very good. And have you been up to much recently? Yeah, we've been pretty busy. My company's name is Cinema Development and Writing Services. And my business partner is Tara Walker. And what we do is, when we started out, we've had our business about a year now. And anybody that's curious, they can just go to cinema wds .com. That's our website. And what we do is, we work with novelists, and we adapt their novels into screenplays. And then once we've adapted them into screenplays, we've been asked by our clients to, well, can you place this with Hollywood companies? And we said, well, yeah, we probably can, you know, we weren't doing that. We're primarily focused on writing, but we started packaging, which means that we started putting together like a deck of electronic brochure that shows the actors we thought might be good for the role, and what the director is. And then we present it to different production companies, different producers and finance companies in Los Angeles, and sometimes in New York as well. Okay, very nice. And what inspired you to start all that? Well, I think I started out in the business, and so did Tara, we were both actors. And we enjoyed that. But it's, it's very, very tough. Getting regular work as an actor, you go through good times, and then there's these long stretches where you don't have much work. And so we said, Well, how can we get more involved in business? And so we both decided, well, why don't we become producers? So Tara started her own production company years ago called Alpenfest films. And then I started, I started out making a production company called Autumn Tree Productions, where I, at that time, this was in the late 1980s, I pretty much focused on making educational films, and actually was pretty much on emotional child abuse. And I did that for 10 years, I had a lot of success. A lot of my films, educational films are used in universities and colleges and many institutions. And after doing that for 10 years, I wanted to segue over into doing commercial motion pictures and, and documentaries. So I started a company called Bluewood films. And under that name under that company, I produced quite a few films and documentaries and pleased to say that some of them are on streaming platforms now where people can can see them. I just have my newest release was just last month. It's called Crazy Horse of Life, featuring Russell Means, the late Nakoda actor who did very well. Right, then. Very good. And have you ever considered like, releasing any of your work on an international level? Yes, I mean, Crazy Horse of Life is available internationally. They can definitely time to be TV so anybody can go to to be TV and anywheres in the world basically and watch it for free. It's ad supported. And then we've got another film called the right to bear arms, which is a dramatic crime feature starring john savage. And that's available on Amazon Prime and Amazon freebie and also on to be TV. And we've got another film that's distributed internationally. It's also on to be TV. It's called the Loch Ness Monster of Seattle and it features Graham Green, the Academy Award nominated actor from Dances with Wolves. It's been doing very well. My distributor is very pleased. He just sent me a letter the other day and he said how happy is that how well it's doing. So those those three films are available now. We've got new ones that are going to be coming out later this year. We're excited about. Wow, fantastic. So where would you see yourself 20 years from now? Well, that's a good question. And 20 years is a long time. But I would say in 20 years, I'd probably see myself and Tara, my business partner, our own company now, but probably producing eight to 12 motion pictures a year. Also, I'm a composer too. So I probably, I haven't been doing my composing recently, but I've, I've scored a lot of motion pictures and documentaries. And it's a matter of fact, Crazy Horse of Life. The score I did that score and I did actually I wrote the score years ago, but it's used in this big feature now and I scored the movie right to bear arms as well. So but 20 years, I want to still be producing movies and helping actors and helping create jobs for people that work in the industry. You badly because they can't get work. Yes, of course. So I want to provide jobs for people. And also, I'm a novelist as well. And I hope to have a few more novels released. I just had my first novel released by awesome Achilles publishers, which is their home offices in London. So it's definitely an international release. And it's called when the sunlight goes down, goes dark, excuse me, when the sunlight goes dark. And it's about a young, young boxer living in Los Angeles, who has to deal with unscrupulous promoters. And one of the one of the supporting characters in the book is a man from England who who wins one of the heavyweight titles. It's also a book that it also covers worker exploitation, family dysfunction, spousal Okay, fantastic. Yeah, let me just mention, Peter, that people can look at it to go to the website for the book. It's when the sunlight goes dark .com. That's the website for the book. And it's also available on amazon .com and Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, any bookstore, you go into any reputable bookstore, and they can order it for you. All right, then very good. So in terms of your written work, besides what, besides the novels you've just written, are there any more novels you're yet to write or have released? I do have one novel. It's called primordial division. I'm searching for the right agent to rep it. It's kind of a crime horror novel. It's also set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. And it's about a woman who has the ability to see the future. She's kind of one of these mind readers and the kid, the male protagonist is able to, he's got the power of telepathy. Very good. And it's set in the context of the entertainment industry. Oh, nice, nice. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? I'm sorry, say that again, Peter, a 14. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? Oh, a 40 minute presentation? I could give it on, definitely, I could probably give it on, I made educational films for 10 years. So I could do on an education, I could do one on the film business. They cover all the aspects of the film business from development to pre production to production to post production, exhibition and distribution. I could do that for you. I've been in the music business since I was a kid. So probably give you a one on that as well. So, okay, very good. What which recent news story have you found most interesting? That's a really great question. The recent most recent news story that I found the most interesting probably would be what's going on with our climate and what's happening to the earth in regards to the climate crisis that's happening in the world today. That's that's one of them, I guess I know it's a big topic, but it definitely stands out. I'm also fascinated by what's going on in American politics today, who's running for president and what's going on in Congress in the Senate. And I'm also very concerned with the state of our country, you know, and how divided people are and how unhappy so many people are. Yeah, absolutely. I was gonna also say to my friends who are very struggling because they have kids, and it's hard for them to get daycare for the kids. So I have one friend, she had to give up work because she, she couldn't afford to hire a babysitter or a nanny or daycare. So yeah, she had to give up her job. Oh, no, that's just sad. Very sad, very sad, the income inequality in this, in the United States. I'm not an expert in your country, but in the United States, it's very sad to see so many people that are divided by class. Wow, I thought the UK was bad. I didn't know that the US has got bigger problems given its size. Yeah, there's a lot of problems. Definitely. We've seen the erosion of the middle class here. You know, it's been kind of disappearing for years. And the income inequality that exists in this country, it's pretty bad. And as well as you know, there was a, I was watching, I was watching News Nation the other night and the big story presented by Chris Cuomo, who's an interesting newscaster, whose brother to his brother to the former governor. And he his top story was these kids that these babies, basically, the toddlers and daycare that died from fentanyl overdoses. And he's all over that. And I'm thinking, yeah, that's, that's tragic. But a lot of people don't want to address what's happening kids into this country, they have many kids suffer from abuse, and how they it's very difficult for them to thrive and survive become and constructive citizens. That that puts something into the country that helps it grow more. Yeah, absolutely. You know, I can share one thing with you, I used to be a teacher. And I taught drama at a film school and a college, as well as film production. And I had a class, this is in Seattle, Washington. And I had a class where I had a quite quite a number of kids that were African American. And I'll never forget this, Peter, because like, they would come to class, sometimes the girls would be crying and go, what's wrong? She go, Well, Joey got killed last night. He said, What are you talking about? She goes, Yeah, Joey, you know, he got on the top of he got on the roof of Dan's car and Dan shot him to death. I said, Oh, you don't read about that in the paper. And then then another day, a girl came into class, she was weeping. I said, What's the matter? And she's when my sister was killed last night. I said, Well, what happened? She said somebody shot to her living room window, and she was killed. You don't read about it in newspaper. Just people don't know about that. Exactly. Yes, indeed. It's the media these days, they only want to show what they really want to show. They don't show the important stuff that goes on like poverty, financial crisis or things that impact a lot of people in this world. Absolutely correct. Yes, you're right, Peter. They don't know it's funny, funny because Chris, it's not funny, but I found it interesting. Chris Como mentioned one night on his show on news nation, he, he mentioned that people don't want to talk about class warfare in this country, you know, what's going on between the classes between the wealthy and the poor, or the struggling lower middle class, you get an idea of it. And now with all the strikes that are going on, you get the writers Guild of America on strike. You've got the screen actors Guild that's going on strike. Now you've got the United Auto Workers going on strike, and it's getting bigger, that strikes growing. And if that strike goes all out, it's going to, it's going to play havoc on the economy here. Yeah, absolutely. What do you disagree with most frequently? What do I disagree with most frequently? Probably people that say everything's going to be great. You know, you just have to hang in there. And also, I find myself disagreeing a lot with financial advisors who say, just, you know, keep it where it is, you know, don't sell, just stay steady, keep your bonds, 40 % bonds or 60 % bonds, 40 % stock or 40 % bonds, 60 % stock. I disagree a lot with financial advisors. Not that I'm an expert in finance, but I'm fascinated by it. I read about it. Absolutely. How much time do you spend on the internet? How much time do I spend on the internet? A fair amount, because I do a lot of research on the internet. And while I'm something to do research on something particular, then then you find, wait a minute, I've got to have to research this more. Then you find yourself going to another page, finding more things to read about. And then you realize you're going to be searching even more on the internet. So and to be honest with you, I spend so much time on the internet as it is on zoom calls. I'm tired of looking at the internet. I prefer reading books. So I read a lot of books. But I've got to use the internet a lot to do research. You know, especially I work with a lot of people that I've got to find out what their background is, you know, in the film business, and the financial business. So I do spend an enormous amount of time on the internet. I imagine you, you do yourself, I'm sure. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Hours upon hours. Yeah, it's a it's a necessity. It's a necessity today without a without a cell phone or computer. It'd be very difficult to survive. I do know some folks in their 70s and 80s. They don't use computers, they don't use cell phones. I do know one young guy who doesn't use a cell phone, but that's very unusual. But it's very hard to survive. I couldn't stay in business if I couldn't use a computer and cell phone. Oh, yes. Sure. It's the same for you. Yeah, of course. The internet is such a necessity. It's part of our lives, in a way. Absolutely. Yes. It is. It's built in. And you read about these kids, you know, they get addicted to their cell phones and computers. And there's so many psychologists that predict they're gonna have trouble with their personal relationships in looking at a screen. They don't spend time in person a lot. I don't know how that'll play out, but it makes sense in a lot of ways. What a world filled with clones of you, what would a world populated by clones of you be like, a world populated by I'm sorry, what what would a world populated by clones of you be like? You mean point of view? And a world populated by clones of you? What would it be like? Oh, clones of me? Yes. Okay, what would I think it would probably be a pretty peaceful world. To be honest, I don't think there'd be any wars, I think war would end. I think children would, we'd set up some type of educational system and change some values in the government in the country so that kids don't get abused, that parents are afforded the education and the training, starting in high school. Probably actually, I take that back, starting in grammar school. How to parent, how to treat other human beings, learning about themselves, becoming self intelligent, learning emotional intelligence, understanding their emotions. And growing up to be citizens that are productive and have empathy for other people. And if this happened, we could, I believe we could end this may sound naive, but I do think we could end poverty in this country. But there's no will to do that. There's no will to help kids because children can't vote. And they're not members of political action committee. So I would, I would make sure that their political action committee is available for children. I would allow children at a certain age if they can show that they have some knowledge about the political system, to have a say in voting, to see who represents them. And I believe with education, and with treating people well, with respect and compassion, having people trained for the type of work that they want to do, that poverty could could be eliminated. And so there are a lot of clones to me, there would be no more wars. And there would be a lot less suffering in the world. Yeah, that sounds that sounds like a very good reason. Thank you. Welcome. What's Education is the key. Education is the key and law. The merging of law and education. And again, unfortunately, the people in power, the bureaucrats and politicians don't have the will or the desire to bring about the needed changes. Yeah, it's so sad. What is your favorite quote? Yes. And probably, I guess it's a quote that is on my mind a lot now, because it's a quote I used to open my novel when the sunlight goes dark about the boxing family in Los Angeles, and the quote is, Oh, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, that I am so meek and gentle with these butchers. And it originally that quote is taken from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar when Mark Anthony is standing over the dead body of Julius Caesar and Caesar has been assassinated. by members of the Senate. And he's bemoaning the fact that he's so meek and gentle with these butchers because he's kind of going along with them at the time. And it's just a quote that just stands out to me because I've used it in my book because I my books about worker exploitation in one way because a lot of these boxers are exploited. And a lot of them end up in not very good shape. Because people aren't looking out for him. So I guess for today, that's my favorite quote. I mean, I have others too. But I guess for today, that's the one that would be my favorite. All right. Very good. And I could you could use that metaphorically, too. I mean, the sense that, you know, Oh, pardon me, you know, why aren't the people that are running the government trying to help the people? Yes, that's a very good question. I'm sure you've run into very similar situations in England. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. All the time. What's improved your wife quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? I'm sorry, Peter, you have to say that one more time. All right. What improved your life quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? well, Oh, I would I would say I spent a lot of time in therapy. I came from a very dysfunctional family. I suffered a lot of abuse, I was put into a private boarding school where kids got regularly beaten very badly. One of the lucky ones, really, I never suffered any permanent physical injury. But I think if I hadn't gone into therapy, and I was in therapy for decades, I'd say that probably the key to my being a functioning productive adult today, that in a book I read, called compassion and self hate, written by Theodore Isaac Rubin, that book changed my life. I never thought a book could change my life, but that one did. Yeah, of course. That and of course, if you're going to be successful, you have to you have to work hard, you have to know where to put your effort, you have to work hard and you have to think smart. I mean, that old saying about if you work hard, everything will fall into place is not necessarily true. I've known, I've had guy friends that have worked hard all their lives, and they've got nothing. Yeah, absolutely. So you got to work smart, as well as hard. Yes. But the more success you realize, it just adds to your happiness and your fulfillment. Yeah, of course. But people need the basic necessities have to be taken care of. You got to have clothes, you got to have proper shelter, you got to have decent physical health. I don't think I've ever met anyone that's happy if they haven't had good physical health. Yeah, of course. How did you spend your last birthday? Well, my last birthday, I had dinner with my business partner and my best friend, Tara Walker. We went to a really nice restaurant down on the beach, had a great dinner. And then went home and watched a really great movie. And it was a great day. And you know, I talked to a lot of friends and family too. I got a lot of calls. Okay. That's cool. It was fun. Oh, yes. It was quite a time. Yeah. You like birthdays? Yeah, I like birthdays. It's pretty cool, I guess. It's funny. I was just reading about Jimmy Carter, you know, the former President of the United States who is a president. And he's going to be turning 99 here in a couple days. And someone called him up, one of his family members said, I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. And he said, that's, that's not real good. I'm not really excited about this birthday. I didn't know you even make this far in his life. Yeah, he's going to be 99 years old. And you know, he's been in hospice for seven months. Everyone thought he was going to pass in about two or three weeks and he's still going. Madness. Amazing man. Absolutely. We could use a young Jimmy Carter today. That's for sure. Uh huh. Yeah. That'll be something. It would be. Yeah. Yeah. What's the best way to start the morning? The best way to start the morning is to eat a good breakfast. I know so many people that don't eat breakfast. They have health problems, they're overweight. And I don't mean starting breakfast, you know, eating junk food. You gotta eat something healthy for you. Eat something healthy. Write down the things you need to do today if you have to make a list. Yeah, it helps me a lot before I go to bed to write it to do this. So when I wake up in the morning, I know exactly what I got to do. And I got to feel the body first. You got to take care of the body. I have a friend of mine who's, he had a stroke and he's in the hospital now. He can't barely move. And, you know, he, he didn't have the right diet and he's still a fairly young man. It's very tragic. So feel the body and feed it well. Yeah, absolutely. I'm sure you know, because I could tell you put a lot of hours on your show. Oh yeah. It's, it's quite a process, but it's definitely worth it. Yeah, it's enjoyable. Yeah, sure is. If you could travel back in time, what would decade you want to live in? There's so many decades I would love to live in. There's so many centuries I'd love to live in. It's really hard to pick one, but if I had to pick one, I'd probably say the early 1960s. Sixties? That's pretty cool. Yeah, that's when Muhammad Ali came on the scene and that's when the Beatles came on the scene. To me, that's, I think we'll never see the likes of the Beatles or Muhammad Ali again. Yeah. So one of a kind, they always say. Yeah, but I, believe me, Peter, I'd love to live, I could go back to ancient Rome and be fascinated. Of course, your life expectancy wasn't very long. Oh yeah. Cause Sanitary wasn't up there and the advancement technologies got in the way. Yeah. Everything's like, ugh. I would love to live the life of a Plains Indian in 1840. I think that would be fascinating. It's freedom that people can barely conceive of today. And what a great, got the kids, Indian children back in those days, man, talk about having a great childhood. Yeah, absolutely. And that is all we have for this episode. It was great having you on Oliver talking about your works. You're welcome. And until next time, stay tuned for more.

Sierra lister was is that the same warehouse that they built originally or they just bought the ns the same warehouse scene during cova. We were donated. Another ninety thousand square foot warehouse filled to bram in central phoenix. So because of the philanthropic people around phoenix. We've been able to really serve the people for sure. It's been great communities really. Can you know the name really. Liza called midwest. Well it is but When they realized what we're doing the communities really really supporting us it's fun. Anyone arrived remember when we went there that day. I'm like midwest. Like i i don't get it but then they played. That is like maybe a ten minute trailer or whatever and then it started in the midwest which is hence the name and then seven locations. I think you said across hand. So now there's nine We just opened one in dallas and one in new york city just outside of new york city in hershey pennsylvania so and then we've got to one haidian wanted africa john. It's the movement in. It's you know it's just started by these three brothers in bloomington and look at the good that they're doing they're the largest food bank in the country right now. They're doing more pounds and dollars the food than than any other food bank and they got gino. That's god thing like it's not because of anything we're doing it's it's a it's it's really an amazing place. I think it's pretty what i what i'm noticing from. That is that from that personal touch where that guy reached out. The owner of the food bank reached out to to your to your friend that had. That's what started like. Hey i really like this. If he wouldn't have reached out maybe Have never happened all serve. Now you're exactly right. I mean it's the same thing as byron right in the thank you card. I mean it means a lot to get a little thank you call or a thank you card. Yeah i you you framed the darn thing so i think for me takeaway is a you know like i did that when i was back in the mortgage business. 'cause i my coaches have me do it. Unlike writing out. Thank you cards. It became kinda mechanical. But you know when you're doing it. I have my assistant. Put the thank you cards on my desk. In every day. I was writing. Thank you cards at ten. Thank parts of the people. I can't say how far that when we getting back into that. But what i do as a business owner is i. I reach out to my clients. I tried to call personally. Call ten people a day and it blows their mind it. Moore's remind so for those of you listening to your financial adviser business owner. Mom dad doesn't really matter man. It's like there's certain things that you can do. That will lift not only lift your spirits up and that's all in tearing when you went down to the food bank. There's just something about giving any expectation for return on creating when you create things like whether it's music or building a little wooden structure willow would music box for your daughter stuff like that creates it and i also think like writing writing letters or calling people for no reason just to just to tell them thank you. It's that personal touch. And that's what's really missing today in the technology age so if we can incorporate that in there i think it's think it was some real real power in that not just for the clients and building that client Loyalty and that kind of stuff. But also for yourself spiritually right mean you feel good right. You just told me you you. You know this food bank. Bill announced like can't wait to get there pretty cool so those those were those reminder takeaways yet while you know when whenever i mean i just piggyback off of that you know anytime.

And you know as you know. Tim you really have to sort of decide on on what kind of outflow you're gonna have on marketing cost and more dollars out and had this happened before i would not know what the future was going to hold on all this stuff.

Let's go ahead and get into this Like what how did you meet a carter. And how'd you get involved with financial what's up doing for your business. So i'm always networking right. I i think that when you're in this industries or trying to develop relationships pregnant any industry so that that is always been kind of atra professional tennessee line network who i work with to help. Deliver services to customers and clients at a greater level offense level up. So you know. Getting to point through the network the process of network. Somehow i got up. I met carter see aside and you know one thing about carter is they eat is definitely not never short. Who's the ask. What's what's franklin win your sale. You need you need someone who's like go get it right. You need your wall street right under one hit but on the other hand. There's there's a lot of utilities tactical things harder I guess maybe just personal experiences or through. His professional experience was acutely aware of general impediments. That advisors wealth managers may encounter went Word and he has you know this kind of inexhaustible mindset of trying to figure out how do we get around some of those hurdles that touched in change in effect where live work. That'd be right. And so you know as i know or about. Csi and how they work out there are there. They're immediately revealed to eat a number of just a number of cool stuff man. I'm sorry i'm not friday. Just a bunch of really cool smart things that He plays the really help advisors. Do they do and look. I have existing relationships with other financial groups other They're really good people. And i'm not throwing shade on anyone. I definitely think of carter not connected. Because he you know he. And i had it very similar. Mindset is work ethic also was just second-to-none And and they're just tools. There are seeing that off that are offered at aside it. they're just not offered anywhere else. I mean we get into that want but but that that's really what what what really triggered. Actually look let's get into a little bit of. That's a foundational approach and in the act that because i kinda sorta want of spirit inch specifically what we were talking about the other day. What you sort of touched on with generational wealth in fact that's in the minority community. It's like and we can talk a little bit about that. Podcast i shared with you about how it's it's as if what ends up happening all too often the wealth gap between the white community if you will right and the black community and People of color tends to be because of the lack of generational wealth planning or what we have now started his family succession planning and how that can determine the future generations right that you can either adversely affect or proactively benefit by having this foundational approach that we call a state planning. Which is you know that that terminology gets thrown around. What does that really mean and we try to sort of dice stacked in in sort of simplify what that really means Which is why we talk about succession. Planning what specifically that connect of not only the process that we have refined and developed where we use the east a portfolio in helping that any household re regardless of you know their demographic whatever it might be but also specifically on that podcast share with you with art still and how you can potentially benefit that that generate those generations in the community that you're serving on a regular basis talk a little bit about how those connected pieces really can help to positively affect those that demographic so you you you're touching the big issues of deep issues. Here's is right. I'm an african american male And statistically speak right. I have a higher rate of heart disease high rate of the pressure. Ira of stress at a faster rate of mortality. Pretty much the majority of reasons for why humans died us right. African americans afghan males the tickets but african americans generally demographic have higher rates or towel in a number of different health and there are a lot of reasons right when you talk about serious discussions of armour talented and then you juxtapose that. Also with considerations that that look african-americans communities generally The typically anyway inherit reportedly the least amount of generational acid giving than any other demographics in the us. Right and when you add to the fact that generally the us population is only like sixty to sixty five percent Us family general have will or estate plan at all though. There's a big need there but minority be fairly community. Less than fifty percent of these families also have some sort of miller state plant together so talented but that oughta get the fastest or most likely to die where we eat.

"Sleep in from all night long while you're sleeping you're fasting Wreck break fast. That's why it's called breakfast. You stop that natural detoxification process. And you don't wanna do that. You want to continue that. So what what is happening is when you replace it with liquid nourishment your body continues to detox and continues to push stuff out and clean up your body and clear dead cells very important in rest the digestive track right. The this is very very important. It's very powerful way so you all you're doing is skipping on giving but replacing breakfast you're not skipping it. You're not going to die. You're getting massive amounts of nutrients into the body in liquid form without all the burden of gestion so that in twenty minutes in your bloodstream. And into your cells. Now i know some of you listening. What about the fiber weenie fiber. You're absolutely right. We do need fiber. But we're not juicing get fiber or juicing to get nutrients into the body without the burden of digestion. We want to continue that fast. It's the cleanup in the nourishment. Basically enrichment to the cells so that you can your body will just turn around and start healing up and start losing way to start sleeping better and you'll you'll see deaker. Isn't it a kind of like a. There's like studies the longer that you fast. You can actually heal your body from certain diseases because your body is on having you know digest food so does so it's it's Helps so yeah yeah. It's actually match against you can do like a three day. Water fast in completely reset your immune system like think about registered. That's a really powerful concept. People thinking about water. I mean just thinking about replacing breakfast with liquid nourishment is scary to people. See you have to baby step your way. There is a clinic in california called true. North clinic Ran by doctor. Alan gold hammer and that guys in the sixties he looks really good great and amazing so all the people that i follow and stuff that i get my information from. They have personal success in their own life. They're walking talking living breathing examples of abundant health young longevity great skin and you can tell they they take care of their insights because it shows on the skin. If you like for the men and women out there listening if you wanna have beautiful skin and you need to have a beautiful gut. And that's that's gonna be the key. So fasting and is very powerful allows the body a chance to rest in the clean itself up and what you were saying. There is true because when you consume food it's a it's a digesting takes a tremendous amount of energy from the body if you're not spending all that energy to digest food all that energy and your immune system gets rerouted to Fear to your activities of daily living your energy levels your brain your mental clarity and to allow the body to completely clean itself up and get rid of all these dead cells and rejuvenate itself so fasting is very important but start with just replacing breakfast with liquid nourishment and then maybe after that down for a month or two of the. I'm going to do a one day juice faster. Maybe then you replace lunch to with liquid nourishment. You do that and have dinner. Then maybe down. The road replace all three of them with liquid nourishment. Wallah you just juice fasting for one day in your body's in love before then he can slowly big your step your way into maybe one day you do you know. I made it five days on water in that was like the fourth and fifth day. I was like but you know it was a it. Took me years to get to that point year. a so here's the deal. We can't tell them everything in one episode So what i'm gonna do in. We're going to go ahead winds down our. We're going to call this. Our christmas podcast episodes.

"So which pristine what's your what's your morning routine for your health warning the same okay. Well what was that several. Actually it's all are bound of supplement. Ills i swear it's like we want adding another one in another one and another one that is just like big pile of on anywhere for what vitamin c. Vitamin d call nowadays. Yeah kind of morning routine. We take a green juice every morning. Bruno get that off. I watch your show. The enriches in case anybody's watching the exactly what it is that we're doing in the morning. Yes it is eighty-five and i love the. This'll be my new head. Despite writer t be honest to all day enriches do not take a green supplement. You need to like it if you don't take if you don't drink greens your life will be blue so water. I usually try to drink. This is what i carry it everywhere but it's my water. May i wanted these first thing in the morning. And that's kind of how are reaching is. Is that what we on. On the hillside of the routine and everything you know the first thing that i do and i typically. I'm a i. I i will say that i'm might be the worst when it comes to Maintaining my health in fact. If it wasn't for her i wouldn't even be doing supplements. I wouldn't be doing anything you know. She's adamant about it with maybe six and a half years older than her. You know she was like hey. I want us to be together a long time actually speaking. I'm supposed to predeceased her. Even if we're the same age so that much of a gap you know. I don't want her fifteen years on this earth longer than i am. So i'm i'm doing things i can't but because i'm building a couple of businesses simultaneously. It's not unusual for me to get up at two o'clock in the morning. Which i which i hate because i know in tim you'd be into my head is well you know. Sleep is so critical. And i gotta tell you that. I have been taken a little bit of a. They just asked the laws air in arizona and nevada. It's okay we got a little bit of a half a gummy that that induces sleep so i slept in mornings like ten after seven like sleep until noon back in the old days for me. So that's been that's been critically important. Sleep is so critical. I know you could touch on that a little bit more but you know i have my routine i am. The first went up a almost without fail. And i get up but the first thing i do. Is i drink water. That's the first thing i do is to kind of get the body recirculated. Again and that Alkaline water that happened. You know. I know you're gonna give a good tip but That you give to me earlier you know. Make sure you're adding some mineral. Chew that water as well. Either with it or after you drink because it may not taste that good anyway. So it's really the supplements the water getting rehydrated to get the morning started and everything and then it's got a little bit too cold recently but what we were doing we were going out on a three three and a half mile walk every single morning. Which kit which was a tuber exercise was great was also achievements for us to disconnect from everything around us. Whether that's you know you know Devices or whatever the case may be an us reconnecting with one another on those walks talking about whatever it is that we were doing. So that's a one of those things that has was hugely beneficial for me and as it starting to get warmer again here at venus will start doing those walks again but you know it's not light here until six thirty seven o'clock in the morning so if we went out when we had to so i didn't take away for the business building part of things we were going out and starting at five o'clock in the morning but the sun's up and the summertime here at five o'clock in the morning so that sort of sounds like you need headlamps. That's his. that's his healthy thing. But i think honestly the biggest thing for me tag get to they. Richards is like don't be afraid to shop on that parameter.

It was a free standing building but the mall that opened behind it. One of the anchor restaurants was cheesecake factory so she started when at cheesecake factory there when they first opened maybe three months after we had opened up by the way right before nine eleven. So that's when we we first Started those stores. So i remember that there was this girl that started working at changs and i immediately was like. Whoa like she'd like there was something that attracted me like the law of attraction so the the problem was that she only worked there part time. So she had there's a host that worked at our. Pf changs but also was a host at the cheesecake factory and he said christina montgomery shouted to montgomery Santa cristina and. Maybe you want to tell that story a little bit about how you got to.

We'll be right back if you build it. They will come for most financial advisors. The subject of estate planning for their clients is relegated to a side activity. Only to be left to disconnected. Third party outsource rather than recognizing the opportunities it inherently provides adviser very often view estate planning related work as a time consuming unproductive process. Unfortunately this kind of remiss and costly attitude is derived mostly from unquestioning acceptance of half truths or even outright fiction. Another factor is simply the lack of relevant knowledge and a team of experts to partner with. Hello i'm parter. Wilcox in the ceo and founder of csi financial group an architect of the adviser partner platform over the next few minutes. I'm going to update you on how this one of a kind and unprecedented process has changed the lies for so many when we set out on this journey to connect advisors with clients.

Something to make it more than it is and in this. I am a world. We've been competing at those descriptions of empty promises that have given this industry and enviable reputation.

Arcia if you enriches have not seen that episode yet you gotta make sure you see because it is all about a client positioned to be solved during this pandemic as we call it right of the pandemic but it's also there. There is priceless. Amount of information for your hell that tim james shared with scott garcia in saint louis missouri. It blew his mind and now what he's doing is taking that information to his clients to do these three things that we've set out to do at csi finance rupe better than anybody else. The client experience create professional contrast and then ultimately competitor proof. Those ideal clients that. You're working with I do want to go ahead and have christina wilcox and say hi to everybody. All the enriches out there cam. Yes so it'll be interesting. Because i was in my household in. We learned this early on with our kids. Were like we're not gonna Around the house whenever they're sleeping and they're they're just gonna have to get used to it but it'll be interesting because this one here is actually louder than i am. And as our enriches. No i tend to be a little bit more gregarious and outgoing. But she's actually louder than meet. Believe it or not. But i think she's going to have to her way into this whole thing al. I'm not as loud no-one if it is lots you know well well you have whole staff can agree with me. They're definitely in your camp when it comes to that so Hey look like You're not gonna win that debate. I i'm not. i'm not that. That's for sure. But i will tell you the one thing that for you enriches out there. That are listening to the the health and wealth. Side of this podcast. For reason you know how do you grow your practice I tell people on a regular basis. It's usually by phone you know. We're we're talking to advisors throughout the country and they are getting to know us and you know maybe for the first time and i'm having conversations but the more ourselves aphids having conversations with them but one of the things that i eventually get around to is. I'll tell if you ever wanna know what type of a salesperson i am. I'll have to introduced in my wife. Because i way out of my coverage on this deal so it's only because i had good salesmanship. That's that's what i tell them. I wanted to. But i wanted to share a about this episode today. Why this episode is gonna be specialists because we had the ladies. So we're normally focusing on you. Know the you know accumulating wealth stacking the cash. Making sure you're not paying too much in taxes acquiring clients all that stuff you know we we cover that then we also cover all the health stuff you know boosting the immune system longevity flat. belly's getting rid of the gas in the building. All these issues losing weight gaining muscle fini to all these things that at the end of the day. What's why are we doing all this. There's other parts to our life. Asides money emphasize our health. Those are two very important Forms of abundance in our life but it's our relationships and that's why we wanted to have the ladies on today the the women's because this is like the this is the why we do everything like a lot of guys will get up every morning and go to work but when they have a wife and they have children. Then there's that duty obligation like it. Just i don't know what just picks you up and it's like a win behind your back into the same thing for for women that are the primary earners for their household when you have to take care of other people that you love and care about you you just get things done so we just wanted to bring the women the ladies on today because this is why we worked so hard right. This is why we want to have the money so we can have the freedom to get him. Whenever christmas gifts. We want or a modification. Doesn't have to be some. You know super luxurious thing. But just you know getting out of the house and going on a weekend trip or whatever oil. We want to have good health so that we don't have to become a burden to them down the road. I don't want her to be like. Oh jeez tim's dims had another heart attack is is he gonna leave me and leave me. You know what i mean. That's like a lot of money here. But i i'd rather have my my my boyfriend around you know and likewise i don't want her to get sick. I want her to be healthy and vibrant and feeling good. And everything's better. You know when your health is good. You're gonna have better children healthier kids less sickness less disease better sex. I mean everything gets better when your body is really really really healthy. So that's why we wanted to have ladies on today. So i guess we'll just start off like a rebecca's going to ask you like what what's the as far as all these forms of abundance. We talked about. We talked about Our health our relationships Financial spiritual career all these things. What would you think is the most How do these things relate in in your life. That makes us way off here. I don't know. I think i think it went sideways. Amine today i think the route is spiritual. Then i think like as you going forwards it becomes like a relationship and it becomes the finances become is being able to do what you need to do when you go ahead. Actually an one described that the but shards version out of the Edge twelve dubai by you talks about how the true form of dinh's is being able to do what you need and that isn't always including money. doesn't always clean things out by resources. Huge journey the health and wealth on go down to the very roots which is like a spiritual base rhythm. You actually answered my question. The way i wanted you to. Even though i didn't ask the question the way i was suppose question was like out of these. All of these forms of abundance. How would you prioritize them. As i knew. I knew urgel like that.

In know whatever you know like penmanship stuff with is just kind of like a rite of passage for us. Not necessarily like a stereotype that we're breaking per se so i think that's something to be celebrated but yeah i mean i miss black-americans american black people like that. Not that west indian. But i'm saying like american boom. I'm saying so okay. So she's mixed up with a lot of stuff right so room a west indian perspective which would be the perspective that i would look through this lands that it's not necessarily more breaking stereotyping. It's more about holding what you've always done type of thing now with from a black american perspective maybe you know. Maybe it's considered more like in an american way like black. Excellence type of thing which okay cool i don't really know. I don't really know a lot of people's opinions who think like oh yes. This is breaking the stereotype. I don't think so. I think it's just like oh. This is monumental for her to be black and a woman at the same time because that intersection is important. And i understand that particular. I guess i just haven't really gotten over the fact that like trump is gone like there's a lot of ptsd. I feel like associated with the last presidency. That i just cannot even wrap myself around because every three hours there was some shit fucking out of the gate. That was just ridiculous But yeah i. I was holding my breath on the inauguration. I think that it's good that they're in but like they need a fucking do some shit or bitch. Guillotines needs come back. Like i don't know what to tell you like figure it out. No there was a lot of talk about them. Planning you know something for the inauguration. Were you guys surprised that nothing happened. No not surprised at all I'm definitely not going to say that. Nothing is ever going to happen rohingya. I'd be stupid of them. Until i done it on a day again that everybody was on such high watch for some maybe on like an off day. They're going to go back into their holes and be planning. Maybe this time not on twitter because they see the repercussions for that. Maybe they've learned. Maybe they have it. But i think on a day were nobody's early thinking about anything or you know like i feel like july fourth would be like a cool day for them. It be like all right. We're going to try to get guys like give it another go type of thing when earliest expecting it. But i don't know i think that they they. They're not as as stupid as a lot of people. Think and them saying oh. We're going to do it on this date. And then that getting out to the public putting everyone on high alert of course. They're not going to do it. then apart. doubt that might have been the plant par for all we know they might have put that out there as a fucking trojan horse to make people think. Oh well it's it's going to happen on this date. Oh it didn't happen because we're bad asses. We stared the proud boys in the winning away. Three days later you disagree with what i disagree with that because they literally said on all social media platforms that january six was going down and they did it will. Yeah but that was when alert was not high. They said that but that was within weeks and nobody took him seriously. Right now is what. I'm saying if they're saying now we're going to show up armed after last week or two weeks ago. Whatever it was we showed up broken. Had a cop killed. of course. they're not going to do it on that date. But i could completely see them. Say okay. we're going to do it on january seventeenth and then in between them saying it and then doing it deciding okay. We're not going to do on this date anymore. We're going to do it now. We're going to wait a week when they're not going to expect it. That's what i'm saying. I don't think that white supremacist. And white nationalist are anywhere near as we would like to think they are. Especially when you see that they're bringing twenty thousand troops there and shit right. I mean you don't have that many people that would be willing to go there to try to fight all of that right and Did you see any of the some of the photos of some of the photos of the fifty capital protests and it was like saw to where it was only like one person there have the at all all of the capitals across the us and And in two states be one was. Montana is somewhere else in. Why something like that. When i watched the news there was only like one person attended the protests or few people but the photo alaska only had one so at fail. Yes people they show three people at the state capitol building here. Yeah so banfield about you know what kind of simplified man. Not only that what you said about you know everybody. Being ohio it would have been stupid to attack but thing was for to present for two inaugurations. They protected a black man. Hey no way inhaled. They're going to have a wife and they at right. The threats were obama was so real. The guy said that he had a speech ready to give that night. I remember that so so yeah so and that was before you know anybody. Even they're coming right so now. Do they know they were coming. News like all right. We know we're gonna protect this guy we ain't gonna let you get to white man so yeah shit or comma was like you're not gonna have them fuck man that's far. Yeah you kill him. She become the president so it's like kinda defeated on purpose. Because you put back at all or ten. You imagine what would happen if something did happen to her. Even if it didn't happen to biden yes if it happened to her the absolute fucking pandemonium. You.

"Your people you can be honest be honest be honest ten years or or endorsed trump. Right right to answer this question. I don't like oh come on. i don't i really don't because it's really like i think is one thing to like be seen a photo that's kind of ambiguous but then it's like if you're actively endorsing people like i couldn't have lived with. I couldn't have lived with myself another four years howling. So you're telling me you're willing to go to prison for ten years solving to be answering the question. I think the answer was no. I would never say that. His house did not really answering. I don't know if i will be able to live with myself about it. Like what if like you endorse him and that was enough for him to win and then he just going on this. I'm a free man. I'm still a free man. You know what i would do i would. I would do it. And then when i got free. Unless there's like a clause in the agreement that says you can't do this onto like look. I did that to get out right. Like i said it so i'm trying to come home doesn't go. Yeah that's what was on. They got to come home. That's what you gotta do come like look. It was either ten years or i take this photo. I took the photo and it good and say for instance trump won or in our scenario. Because i would do. I you know so like you can actually invest your money and put your money and causes to counter counteract what he's what he's doing and that's more years If you wanna make a mess for so because a guy like if i was in wayne situation meaning that we got like i got the money to As well because the thing about it is that for wayne he won't be impacted as much as everybody else in unit stuff like that. So he's got a somewhat insulated from that to a certain degree So that's why the photo-op in exchange for getting out of jail is not gonna hurt him as bad if trump would have ended up winning off the endorsement. So i've heard this argument quite a bit. Like people used to make the same argument back in the day all the time. They'll be like would you take. Would you eat a hamburger. Four million dollars. And i'm like yes stupid fucking and i would always have the same. What'd you just gave. I'd be like look. Yeah i would eat the fucking hamburger. Take that ten mil and donate a couple mil to whatever organizations like anybody that would say no. I wouldn't do that is a fucking liar. One of those things integrity goes far. But not that fucking far right. I did a hamburger patty product and it was something that you said that actively endorsing trump. that means that you know you're you're at rallies you're saying he's the greatest. This is more strategically endorsing trump. Yeah on anyway it was a photo op in a tweet. Ralph okay fine Twenty minutes of my time total but outside of that like we haven't heard wayne say anything about trump we haven't heard wayne actively endorsed trump. So if that's all you had to do to get out of jail burp she. Yee's i'm young yet because you probably doing worse harm on yourself by staying in jail for ten years benefit ranked up system and i mean we're bullshit making excuses but i mean i'm i'm not going to prison. I'm not going to prison for no ten years. Yeah that's a lot. yeah wayne. Thank the trump administration. I want to thank president trump for recognizing that have so much more to give to my family my art and my community Let's see what you do with this community. Now that you free brother. That was a statement on twitter and said Where was it. I don't i don't worry. Complex was on. Twitter actually tweeted out. He's four name to dwayne michael. Carter jimmy then. I probably means that he didn't really write. That wayne is dumb or anything. He's very very intelligent. But i'm saying someone that sounds like so. Many written prefabricated thing so that leads me to think this whole thing was a deal from the beginning. Take this picture. There's the tweet and then later on we'll let you out but you have to give this statement so yeah i hit it. And he didn't really indoors from outright so we know as a photo album. Here's what he said reminded right endorsed the plan your about the plans to just as a reminder of everybody's listening just at what he wrote on twitter with the picture just had a great meeting with from besides what he's done so far with criminal reform the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. Listen to what we had to say today. Assure he will get a done. I said that was it. Yeah i know people ready gonna be you know airing at warriors enough fuck debt. I'm from our people. I wouldn't do it. Yeah it's easy to say now right but when you're looking at that book and book says one zero years. I don't know bro. Yeah don't don't don't yup yup when you hear them clink sounds and i i kind of get it. It's fucked up and it's shitty saying it's a cool do right but what we should and we give on zana's like no. I'm not being in prison for ten years even if it was one year. Like i'm doing it now. I would take the one. I could do one. I take the one to one take the adult every once in a while. Maybe tapping some swell dude bobby running up on me. I can take the one. I come out and get my booty. Rejuvenation surgery budi structure. You don't get snatched could take the word from people's all of i can take the tim. I could do one aca problem solving. Max i can maybe do three max max because i'd be like is the shock to. You're just like kind of settled in and then on the third one you're like well. I'm getting away. So i gotta suck dick for gelo a man walking shit so not looking at this limo. This was fucking ridiculous. Huge man joe was ready. He was so ray-ban. I bet he's about to have all kinds of stripping. They should of strips rivers. I don't know about that.
