A highlight from Prioritizing American Families: A Disconnect with Career Politicians with Stefan Mychajliw
"American families are struggling to put gas in their car to pay six dollars a gallon. They're struggling to buy milk and eggs and groceries. People are really hurting in Joe Biden's America. The difference was crystal clear on that debate stage. The vague ramasami talked about his positive America First vision of how he's going to improve the American economy, put money in the pockets of people. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, America's comeback starts right now. We are live with Vivek Ramaswamy, deputy communications director and friend of the financial guys, Stefan Mihailu. Stefan, how are you? That's right. I'm a financial guys client and deputy comms director for Vivek Ramaswamy. I say that's a great one -two punch. That is. It's a great thing. So tell us a little bit about the overall feeling from Team Vivek or the Vivek camp, I should say, about the debate this past week. Well, I actually drove over with Vivek Ramaswamy here to the Reagan Library and there was a mission to do two things. One, let Vivek be Vivek, be presidential, be above the fray. We knew the attacks were coming. We knew the career politicians on that stage were going to attack Vivek Ramaswamy. And why? Because if you're, you know, getting kicked in the rear, that means you're out in front. So we're wholeheartedly expecting attacks from career politicians is exactly what happened. And so I'd be very concerned if a lot of the career politicians on the stage did not attack Vivek Ramaswamy. They did, and we are more than pleased with his sharing of the American people, what his America First vision is to build on the success of Donald Trump, to build on what Donald Trump laid down that foundation with Vivek Ramaswamy as a candidate for president now in 2024. So you mentioned being the hunted, and I talked to you at a different interview about this, but in debate number one, Stefan, people were trying to just learn who Vivek was at that point, right? He had a couple of zingers. He had a pretty good performance in debate one, but as debate one ended, he was getting attacked and mauled by everybody on the debate stage that night. And then debate two, they started right after him right from the get go. And I do agree with you. I think that was a very interesting thing to see. Hey, you know, and I'll tell you, Ron DeSantis didn't take that right. That beating that, or that, that try to take a beating like that. Nikki Haley didn't, Tim Scott didn't, they were going after one, well, two people, Donald Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy on that debate stage. I was really shocked at the fact that now Chris Christie has a potential running mate in his campaign of vengeance and anger and grievance against Donald Trump. And it's Ron DeSantis. Ron DeSantis attacked not only Vivek Ramaswamy, but Ron DeSantis attacked Donald Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy appeared presidential. He's staying above the fray and he's letting the American people know he's not running against Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis or any politician on that stage. Vivek Ramaswamy is running for the American people. So while we were in the green room, basically watching the debate unfold, we were very thrilled that all the queer politicians went after Vivek Ramaswamy and look, it's no different than what the queer politicians did in 2016 against Donald Trump. History repeated itself. The fact that they were going after Donald Trump in 2016 and they're doing the same thing with Vivek Ramaswamy. So let's look at a couple of those attacks that he received, Stefan. Number one was the TikTok, the TikTok attack with him doing a video. Was it Jake Paul or one of the Paul brothers? Many of the candidates on the debate stage had an issue with him doing any type of TikTok due to the China influence with TikTok. Your thoughts on that or Vivek's thoughts on that? Well, look, Vivek Ramaswamy did business in China. He saw how basically dirty and crooked the process was. So what did he do? As he said on the debate stage, he got the hell out. Now compare that with Apple and Nike and LeBron James who stayed in China, who's profiting from China. So Vivek Ramaswamy says all the time he is going to declare independence from America's greatest enemy and that is communist China. And who better to take out an enemy than someone who knows the enemy. And so as far as TikTok is concerned as well, look, Republicans, shockingly, are in the business of basically not playing within the rules and parameters of a campaign and letting Democrats run all over us for the past few decades. The Democrats are on TikTok. That's how you reach young voters. And that's exactly what Vivek Ramaswamy is going to do. Play by the rules and reach young voters. So I want to ask that question because Jake Paul actually tweeted about Vivek this week about this exact issue and I agreed with what Jake Paul said. The majority of young people between the ages of let's call it 12 and 30, their primary platform is TikTok, right? I mean, that's where they are. And was this totally calculated by Vivek Ramaswamy to get into that voting base because everybody's on Twitter, everybody's on Instagram, but TikTok and everyone can have their feelings on TikTok, Stefan. I don't personally love it either, but was this a calculated move? Vivek has feelings on TikTok. He is crystal clear about empowering parents to make sure that kids 16 and under are not on any social media platform, because as he says all the time, we don't like kids engage in highly addictive drugs like alcohol or tobacco at a very young age. And so Vivek Ramaswamy, his president, says he'll do the same with social media, empower parents and make sure they know that their kids are not on any of these platforms when it comes to running for president of the United States, you have to talk to voters in every means necessary. The Democrats are taking advantage of this medium and so too is Vivek Ramaswamy. We're here to win an election and talk to young voters. That's the way he's doing it. Before we get into the specific issues of the debate last night, I do want to talk about two quick things. Number one, what was Team Vivek's thought about the way that that was moderated, the way that the debate went? It looked very sloppy from afar. I was not in the room. I was not there like you were, but it looked very sloppy. It looked very messy with people talking over each other, people going over on their time, the moderators not asking pointed questions, getting lost in the shuffle. What were the thoughts from Team Vivek? Well, look, as a former news anchor, I know how hard it is to basically try and round up feral cats and get them to play by the rules. For the most part, Vivek Ramaswamy did. The most important rule that he honored was Reagan's 11th commandment, speak no ill will of a fellow Republican. That was the most important rule when it comes to either the moderators or the debate platform or being here in Reagan's presidential library. Don't speak ill will of a fellow Republican. Vivek honored that commandment. He talked about his positive America First vision, how he's basically going to increase and strengthen GDP growth, strengthen and protect the border using the US military to bomb cartels, keep us out of World War III, all the other career politicians on that stage just in the same way they treated Donald Trump in 2016. They wanted to attack and attack and attack not only a fellow Republican, but a business owner and political outsider. It happened eight years ago in 2016. It happened again in the second GOP debate here at the Reagan Library.

I believe on and but it it's through but the Chicago lighthouse he said okay told me he's so a psychiatrist yeah or psychologist that's it because because at I Chicago said well if Lighthouse I put his this name's out how would Frank people get a Lang hold of you so is he said well what you he says his know name he is just asked okay for him and anyways yeah I can describe what it yeah he's just by the way I I just took a look he's so a psychotherapist so at the Chicago yeah lighthouse all so right that yeah should be that well should be yeah fairly so after he talked to me about it I said I don't think I'm I'm gonna be a candidate for that but they what insert into your they brain these do is I'll it's call them diodes of sorts and brain surgery how they they work I don't if know I but was to he look at you says I like could when see you look at see an object you you there can but see I couldn't the see your object features but I couldn't you can't see your like face your eyes your nose mouth and stuff like that but I would see an image there I could see or the box if I but looked I at wouldn't a see what box that or box something was like you that know on for the the counter box of I cereal or it's to you me know it's mashed for potatoes or me whatever I I you know I think just that you was a won't little be bit able to tell but intense for me because it sounds like more

yeah they can I call asked me him I and said what if just I put call this
A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks. Welcome. We have been told that tonight there's some kind of Republican debate. I'm not sure if that's a rumor, but it might be true. And in case it is, we thought maybe we should talk to somebody about it who can tell us what is going to happen. So we have back our friend Gavin Wax. He's with the New York Young Republicans. Gavin, welcome. Eric, it's great to be back and I'm looking forward to the vice presidential debate tonight. Oh, the vice presidential debate. Well, you know, I think Trump said it best that all these guys are looking for a job or trying to apply for a job. It's really just a job contest. No one actually on the stage is going to become president, certainly not this cycle. So we'll see how things unfold if that's how it's looking. It's funny and true, obviously. Many funny things are true. Many true things are funny, but you're right. Now, who tonight's debate? I'm planning not to watch it. What who has qualified, quote unquote, qualified to be in this debate? As far as I'm as I'm aware, it's nearly everyone from the original debate. I think maybe Asha Hutchinson has dropped off. You know, he was polling at, you know, point zero zero one. Now I think he's pointing at polling at point zero zero zero one. So, you know, that that decimal difference makes all the difference in getting on the stage. But you'll see the usual cast of characters. Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Chris Christie, you know, those are the guys that are probably most will get most of the eyeballs, will get most of the attention. People will be seeing, you know, what they do, what they say, if they mess up, if they don't mess up. And then the others are basically just background actors, you know, just adding some ambiance to the stage, I assume. Yeah, it's really not ambiance, actually is the opposite of ambiance. But I know what you mean. Let me ask you, though, for sure. Chris Christie doesn't want to be Trump's vice president because he seems to be there only to express his peak and animus toward Donald Trump. He seems to to be there only to fulminate and to pummel the air with his horrible words against Donald Trump. Yeah, no, you're correct. He probably falls into the camp of people that is not that is not looking for a job, but it is on a on a revenge tour. Many people have accused President Trump of only running for a revenge tour type of campaign. But in fact, you look at individuals like Chris Christie, the only reason he's Donald J. Trump, President Trump, who he believes wronged him or slighted him after the whole presidential transition in 2016 or, you know, Christie didn't even do his job.
Fresh update on "christie" discussed on Live From Studio 6B
"Alright live from Studio 6B on a Monday. New month. October is here. Slick Rick's gonna do some news. Lots to talk about. Harry on the highways in the building. Aaron and Fran holding it down as always. And of course you live from Studio 6B audience. New week. New month. Hope everybody had a great weekend. We were off Friday. I was off Thursday. Thanks to the great David Zier for sitting in for me on short notice. As always appreciate that. So I feel like I haven't been here in a long time. Slick Rick how are you? Fantastic big day. How was your weekend? It was terrible. Oh why you ask? Why? Well I'll tell you why. Because if there's one sporting event in the world that I almost paint my face red white and blue that's how much I'm into it. As you know Slick Rick and I know you know what I'm about to say. Is the Ryder Cup. It's the one event in golf. There's a lot of events in golf I love being a golfer my whole life. But the Ryder Cup is is the event that I look forward to and root as hard as you can root for the American team especially as they flip-flop home and away home and away when they're away in Europe for the Ryder Cup. And your favorite player of all shine. And this was an unmitigated disaster for the US. But first let me say David Zier how are you? I'm wonderful thank you so much for asking. What's under Marxist leftist assault? New York. New York is crazy. Washington's not far behind. Check. Is there anything new? Another day that ends in Y. Mayor Adams is going to Mexico City we should revoke his. Yeah. Oh the white shirt. I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm hearing something in my ear. Is that going to air Fran? No. Oh it's not going to air. Okay that's Harry on the highway. The white shirt is black is blaring. Harry of course comes in and takes over the microphones talking to us. White balance. If you were at least going to air Harry that'd be better so people could hear you. Yeah yeah well anyway EV mandates are here for trucks we'll get into that if you want. Great. You know. Fantastic. Takes away 20% of the cargo weight of a truck that's good news for the truckers. All right so we're gonna get into all that. David Zier's got a bunch of news he wants to get into. Slick's gonna have sports but just to get back to what I just and then we'll get into. We'll get into Gates and all this nonsense and then McCarthy and it's it's this is a cut we'll get into all of that what's going on motion to vacate is on the floor okay rah rah rah great we'll get into all of that how we got here and what the real real problem is here it's not Gates and it's honestly not McCarthy it's this whole damn party that that's really the bottom line so we'll get into all of that and how we got here and some of the things maybe you didn't know that happened you know I I said to somebody this weekend when all this was going down if you're at the table in your short stacked and you have seven deuce offsuit for those of you who play poker you know it's gonna be harder for you to be the bully at the table then if you have got you know 70% of the chips in play and you've got aces every hand you know then you can bluff and and bully and do these things and here we are with a four-seat majority and all along what have we talked about on this show we have talked about the fact that you actually have to get to the shutdown you have to get to the shutdown and with a four-seat majority how much are you gonna be able to do without eventually playing into McCarthy's hands and have him turn around and work with the Democrats which is not exactly what happened but pretty damn close pretty close to what we talked about but before we even get to that because this is gonna be a night of basically drawing the distinction between the Democrats and the Republican Party as a whole because that's really we're pretty much screwed with the party that we have now it's just it's just a fact but just to just to draw the distinction let's talk about California for a second so what happens in California Diane Feinstein passes away last week I guess on Friday was it Friday yeah I saw the news or Thursday Friday whatever it was now California is obviously a huge state and you'd have to figure it's it's California's become a you know leftist progressive utopia over the last years and of course slick slick Newsome running the show and everybody's talking about him and how he's gonna worm his way into the presidency and whatever he gets to a point this person in the to replace Feinstein so you look at you look at California and you got to think well there's got to be a lot of up-and-coming Marxists in the state Senate state legislature some government body there in California that he can go to House members whoever well Gavin Newsom goes to someone that wasn't elected to anything in California as a we can tell she's registered to vote in Maryland didn't she scrub her Twitter page she did today so he appointed a quote first of all black female because that was if you're gonna check the boxes on what she had to have it wasn't you know good legislative history it wasn't smart it wasn't black female check black lesbian female okay we're about to get the box number two does that seem you know kind of random black woman who of course he promised the point that's not even from California so why do you pick her of course that brings us to box two not only she a black female she's a lesbian activist so now we have two boxes checked and that brings us to of course box three which is she's a rabid abortion activist she's the head of Emily's list which is the biggest pro abortion organization that the left you know is in bed with or whatever so this just draws the distinction between the Republican Party and the Democrats the Democrats will get whoever serves their purposes the most on the issues that matter to them the most at the time they matter and they will do whatever they have to to get their biggest activists their biggest player for whatever they're trying to tackle they'll do whatever and wherever to get those persons in those positions the Republicans would never do something like this the Republicans would never make a move like this abortions hot what does he do goes out and gets a black lesbian abortion activist who's not even a Californian to put in this Senate seat which is a hugely powerful seat and she campaign advisor to Kamala Harris they take their best fighters at the time they need them for the issues they need them for and do whatever they have to to get them in position to fight for what they want the Republicans just don't do it they just don't do it you'd never see something like that as we face every existential crisis known to man coming at us border inflation debt biomedical tyranny judicial tyranny all over this country so do you mean that the left always puts the most hardcore person up and we don't we always put a moderate they they put what they put whoever the most vicious yeah killer to attack issue they think they can leverage to win because when we started 2023 what were the Republican leverage points that we had we had to we had the debt ceiling and we had the September 30th deadline that we knew was coming for the budget that was the leverage Republicans had heading into 2023 correct everybody knew that this is your chance to not give the American Express black card to the Democrats again with no limit decide what you're gonna fund decide what you're not gonna fund and use your leverage points to get what you want and what's amazing about where we are is that in all of the times on this show I've talked about these debt ceilings Pelosi and Schumer rolling McConnell rolling McCarthy rolling who ever was in charge they always got their ass kicked all over the place always but in previous years they always had the leader of the party whether they were in control the White House or not had the ability to actually help them in messaging and now we're in this fight with a president and leader of their party who can't put a complete sentence together is half dead is half comatose every single day not even there to help them fight this fight and yet the outcome is still no different still no different so you can't fight on a party that it's extremely disliked a president that is extremely disliked on issues that the American people favor your position on most and they couldn't even fight for 24 48 72 hours past the deadline for government shutdown they were more scared of the actual shutdown than they are of what's going on at the border what's going on it with inflation what's going on as everything that cripples your life that's crushing your existence that's crushing your Liberty no they're not scared about that they're scared about all but the the the the deadline to shut down the government we couldn't even get to a government shutdown which has been the point I've talked about for you have to get to the shutdown which is why Chip Roy who clearly saw this coming a mile away and Byron Donald's had put together to start an 8% credit cut across the board and catch and release some other border provisions as at least a point to say here's our jump-off point here's what we're gonna stand behind we're gonna pass this and send it to marble mouth and let him pressure would it have mattered that Democrats didn't have the Democrats have to say in an election year are we gonna are we gonna work we're gonna be responsible for this shutdown right now are we gonna be responsible for saying no no no we don't want to secure the border at all yeah I think one by the way before you before you go on the word on the street is that 8% that they discussed two weeks ago not got shut down went to 30% yeah on Friday afternoon I saw it because that's what they had promised back in March and they said let's do it 30% cut I saw that but you know again in the end does it do anything my my concern is that I don't care if the government shuts down let us shut down when new gang rich which surprisingly you know was ripping apart Matt gates because new Cambridge shut down the government and we got the largest tax crease in cuts up until that point in the history of America the economy took off like a rocket ship in 1996 I'm in the building industry for 35 years I watched it it happened and also they got Clinton to balance the budget over it but I just wanted to add Ben Burquam on the war room tonight if you didn't catch it go online and watch the segment with Ben because you know they he was on fire that they should all walk out of Congress just over the border situation but anyway that's that's why that's why they discussed using the border as a jump-off point it was easily understandable by the public it was something that every almost every you would think everybody in the in their caucus even the mainstream Rhino caucus and if certainly the Freedom Caucus would have been on board with you throw in an 8% cut for the 30 45 days and say this is our jump-off point it's not this is not what we want we know this is not going to be signed but this is our jump-off point in the house here you go let Schumer and them say no we don't we're not gonna do this let them be responsible for the messaging but we could never get there all right a lot more on this and some of the other things that happened this past weekend and the real question is when is enough enough for the Republicans all right 17 past the hour live from studio 6b we'll do some sports and news here in a second so just to finish these first thoughts so I was away for two days and all this was going down I mean I have no confidence that in 45 days anything's gonna be any different and I just I just don't know how how much worse does it have to get like where do we have to get to that the Republicans can actually unify behind some messaging is there any amount of people across the border is there any amount of inflation is there any amount of our Liberty be taken away that the Republicans can unify behind positions and you know how unify behind messaging at the actual time that it actually matters like how lives have to be destroyed how many people have to be targeted how much how much does the Trump family have to deal with how much degradation to your way of living does there have to be political targeting of opponents of Americans j6 or like how much is there anything that will elicit a unified response from the Republican Party is the question that I would ask myself tonight what if the you know the Freedom Caucus and the conservative people who claim to be more conservative what if they're not happy with what the Republicans are doing there's no fight in the mainstream Republican Party I think in normal times I could be down with that argument you have a four-seat majority you have to play the hand at some point you have to play the hand you're dealt you could argue that what Gates is doing and I always say what do I say about Gates he's always on offense he's sometimes the only one but you have to be somewhat pragmatic about what you can get at the time what do you have right now you have 45 days of Biden's agenda still fully funded with not a single concession I think the left you've lost the plot my friend I think the left wants to annihilate our country they want to flood the country with the Legals they want to tear it all down and that's their that's their end game so you know the Republicans are complicit in it by not taking tougher stands you know so I understand what you're saying I honestly don't even think it's like one it's not even about gates it's not even about McCarthy it's about the party as a whole it's not even about one person yeah I dare say it's not even about marble mouth it's not about one person when you look at this party when you look at where we are is there anybody that thinks in 45 days this is going to be any different now he's put a motion to vacate on the floor I don't think he's gonna get 218 votes and he admits that he says he probably won't get it on the first time around so maybe they'll come to a consensus by then you know maybe they make gains maybe gates makes gains and they come out swinging after that right I mean it's always worst before the dawn right I don't know I think the gates is doing us any favors right now with the way he says but I also don't think like if he was out of the picture that we would be like sailing off to conservative utopia either I don't think that's I don't think that's the case either right that's what I'm saying I don't think it's about one person at this point with the party it's the whole party as a whole it's bigger than I don't know what we can do about it I don't know I don't know if we can do anything about it even if we dig in our heels unless they say I'm not coming to Congress anymore and we're gonna shut down the government for good until we fix the border you know and other things I mean we're being destroyed like we are being destroyed right now there's one thing you can say in past years Republicans have never had the people on the inside to fight the fight now we have people who are willing to fight the fight but they're not part of it right yeah exactly but no one now we have the outside not paying attention most people are not paying attention to what's going on the 104th Congress you know in the Republican Revolution did make dramatic gains it was a special time in our history and in the end you know people like Scarborough it's a total jerk you know was part of that Republican Revolution but they got a lot done right in the beginning they got a lot done and you know I don't know I feel like the civil and criminal courts are controlled by leftists and Marxists I feel the federal government is controlled by people who want you dead they want us dead they don't want us around and you know we're in the fight for our lives so you know I just it just bothers me that there's gonna be like you know negotiating you know I don't know what to do I don't know what to do but you know we're all getting hurt we're all getting hurt and people can't pay their bills right now does anyone does anyone think in these 45 days that McCarthy can get eight appropriations bills with actual key priorities that the Republicans say they are gonna stand for and actually stand in unity before the what we should have been doing in August when we went on recess which is part of the problem mrs. Warren McCarthy screwed us again not only to screw us on the debt ceiling he screwed us on this too why weren't we doing this in August putting the 12 appropriations bills together and then again say here's what's the messaging here's what we're standing behind here's what we're doing we're ready to go for September 30th we're ready to go we're passing this and here you go Senate I look at it like when you read the news the mainstream media and they say gates is bad I feel like he's doing something right but I also agree with what you're saying you know I get it but you know they want it they want to demonize the right yeah all right we'll do more on this more news with David dear let's do some sports though and here with that is slick Rick Rick Amorani sports brought to you by Mike Lindell if you didn't see Lindell today on war room I shared the clip on our social media and it's just a constant he's just another one it's just how much just a constant attack now he's getting

what's going on I big D well before I get to recap the games we have to pick the NFL game on tonight the Monday night game odds makers Aaron and I it's the New York Giants hosting the Seattle Seahawks

story that really disturbed me this morning disturbed my 70s and early 80s football former Pro Bowl tight end Russ Francis dies in a plane crash and we're terrible ESPN report this morning for Pro Bowl tight tight end Russ Francis was killed in a plane crash in Lake Placid New York on Sunday according to family members Francis was 70 Francis and Richard McSpadden a former commander of the US Air Force Thunderbirds rolled hard to the left after takeoff from Lake Placid Airport before crashing according to a NTSB spokesman it was not immediately clear whether Francis or McSpadden was flying the plane Francis was taken by the New York New England Patriots in the first round of the 1975 draft he made three pole Pro Bowls for the team in 1982 he moved on to the San Francisco 49ers he won a Super Bowl there in 1984 and Francis returned to the Patriots in 1987 before concluding his career the following season Pro Bowl career my older brother Russ Francis was just killed in an airplane crash in Lake Placid New York Francis's brother Ed Francis wrote on Facebook yesterday flying was my brother's lifelong passion and perhaps a fitting way for him to go godspeed to you my big brother very sad story a lot of the old 70s and 80s football fans remember he was one of the prototype phenomenal tight ends of his day big day with the Patriots and very sad news and I'll get to a couple of

sponsored by Mike Lindell and my pillow LFS XP you know how many emails I got today you know what the majority of them were what's the new shirt of the month that was the number one question I got today in the email is what was the new shirt of the month which I will reveal before the end of the show you've already actually decided what the shirt of the month is the audience you did that last month when you picked the did not comply will not comply you know it was second that's the new shirt of the month and it was really close to the winner last month so that's what we're gonna go with slick what else is going on sports all right well listen to this one Patrick Mahomes goal line slide shifts millions at is in in Vegas David Purdum ESPN staff writer Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Holmes slid down at the New York Jets two-yard line sealing a 23-20 win over the Jets on Sunday night a decision that shifted tens of millions of dollars at sportsbooks around the nation the Chiefs closing as eight-point favorites over the Jets and received overwhelming support from the betting public at sportsbooks an hour before kickoff 91% of the bets and 84% of the money wage it on the game's point spread were on Kansas City at Caesars sportsbook met MGM and draft kings also reported heavy action on the Chiefs a Mahomes touchdown an extra point would have put the Chiefs up ten enough to cover the spread with less than two minutes to play he instead made the heady play to give himself up allowing the Chiefs to kneel run out the final seconds and secure the win big day books makers knew early the last week that they need all all the Jets for a big decision in the Sunday night game all week money from the betting public had poured in on the Jets who opened a nine-and-a-half point road favorites over the Jets yet some big bets from sharp bettors caused the line to move in favor of the Jets in the hours ahead of kickoff Caesars reported taking in a $350,000 bet and a $240,000 bet on the Jets plus eight and a half on Sunday yet still had lopsided action on the Chiefs somebody knew something there big day but the sharp money came in on the Jets and we're still rooting for them Adam pull in this isn't directed the Caesars book said Sunday shortly after the game kicked off the Chiefs jumped out to a 17-nothing lead but of course we know the story the Jets came back Zach Wilson played a stellar game a lot of folks think that the Jets might have got shift you know got the slip down that on that one call that big D little jockey and back and forth between Jets great sauce gardener and the Kansas City receiver skips my mind right now and there was a flag thrown Wow unbelievable so what are you gonna do that's the way it goes and let's just quickly recap the NFL games Aaron and I had picked on Thursday night in advance of Fridays because we weren't on Lions did end up defeating the Packers 34 to 20 therefore I did cover that game we split on that one bills over the Dolphins but blowout 48 to 22 a tug of a low is still looking for his hat unbelievable game there and so that was 48 21 that won the Eagles that was a loss over the commanders minus eight they did pull that game out 34 31 in overtime but they did not cover the Vikings over the Panthers they did cover they won 21 to 13 and we both had the Chiefs beating the Jets they did beat them but they did not win by nine and a half as I just mentioned in that story about my homes and all that money in Vegas big D so for the weekend we were two and two on the NCAA college picks that I mentioned in the last segment and then three and two on the pro so and not such a great weekend there in the NFL I am 21 and 10 on the season right now big day I'm not sure what very impressive your numbers I'm not sure what I think Aaron's 500 that's fantastic too yeah I think I'm just about 500 15 and 15 about fantastic good from both of you so far yeah no not bad pick so we'll have more picks up we got this Friday we have to show a big day so we'll definitely do that do you want to get into the Ryder Cup or you want to skip that news then we'll get into the Ryder Cup because I have some thoughts to offer you on the Ryder Cup too and our captain so we'll get into that more sports thanks LeCric sports is brought to you by Michael and Dallas do some news news is brought to you by seven cells sitting in for Rick Delgado of course the great David Zia mr. Zia hey what's going on in your world there's a lot going on you know I have a background in real estate so this stuff hits home yeah about Trump I mean I don't have assets anywhere near you know or virtually any assets except a home but listen join a club listen all of this stuff has to get vetted through a bank and as my new friend Mandy Katz says her monarch real estate he's an expert a veteran in Manhattan you know there are appraisals their insurance companies is underwriting the site visits there's comps nobody gives out money from a bank you know as lawyer as Trump's lawyers you know crazy put out today nobody's gonna give you a loan based on you say if you were 3.8 billion if you're really only worth 2 billion so the whole thing's fraudulent but you know as Mandy Katz had he had a great quote with me in our conversation that the iconic Trump organization is going to be chopped up and and they want to get rid of the Trump name and bury it under the streets of Manhattan why is it okay for Jeff Bezos to buy a property in Beverly Hills for a hundred and sixty five million dollars on just a couple of acres that's only 12,000 square feet or why is it okay for him to buy a 10,000 foot home not even in a nicer area than Mar-a-Lago's in Palm Beach Island which is the creme de la creme it's the French Riviera of the East Coast of the United States you know for 68 million dollars for a 10,000 foot house or 12,000 foot house I think it's 10 on just a couple of acres people are selling land on Palm Beach Island and right there for 200 million dollars for two acres for three acres just for the land Mar-a-Lago's 30 acres it's 63,000 feet it's the iconic Marjorie Post family from the famous cereal Empire was built it's this incredible property it's probably worth a billion dollars but also Jeff Bezos bought all these properties in Manhattan 17 million 16 million 80 million 11 Madison Park or one of those addresses you know but they're not as nice as Trump Tower and these other iconic and the Trump brand brings so much to it so we're watching this and it's very very sad because when you buy a Trump brand it's like a trophy asset on millionaire or billionaires row it has meaning and depth to it and the value is arbitrary you know you could say it's worth whatever you want it's only what somebody's willing to pay for exactly which with is what it's worth but anyway I just wanted to get that off my chest it's what it's upsetting to watch because now anybody crazy anybody's can be a target if you're on the right and you're in New York doing business your target yeah it's Banana Republic stuff and it's an that's an insult to bananas to say that that's how bad it is it's ridiculous I mean if anyone's ever bought or sold a house I mean you know what's involved with even just doing that when it comes to banks and it comes to appraisers and it comes to pricing and it comes to what they'll lend you and all you ever anybody who's done basic transactions know how valuations work and how and who they're left up to and I've never in all the transactions I've ever done had some radical leftist judge be a part of it or maybe any decisions about it or give his opinion about it yeah it's it's out of control here this is this is another just trying to put the handcuffs on President Trump so that he has continued money issues borrowing issues campaign issues campaign calendar issues whatever they can do it's just so blatantly obvious and wearing a leftist Marxist takeover of a criminal and civil courts like Giuliani says and it's just the way it is and Latisha James Trump calls her a racist has a history of prosecuting or trying to prosecute white men falsely past the Doyle from the cornerstone Church upstate Cornerstone Church he had a reawaken America tour come to his church she wanted him arrested for domestic terrorism or extremism and the Rensselaer County County County executive won a case I think it was the county executive up there won a case against James she wanted to put him in jail and he beat her you know another way she wanted to go after Cuomo and then run for governor herself this woman I mean it's insane yeah and she doesn't have the intellectual capacity to respect the Constitution there's no one more politically motivated in this country than her no and but it's it's on a grand scale and you know that's where we're at and I got some funny videos for you later and I got a story on time you want to do some we still got time you want to talk about EV trucking really quick yeah you know these EV mandates I just interviewed Mike Kucharski again I interview him a lot he's the head of the largest refrigerator corporate refrigerator truck corporation in America these guys are operating on a shoestring they're already going out of business the mandates the health insurance all the stuff that's going on the crazy laws in California you can't have a truck that's more than 10 years old right now it only costs 180 to 200,000 for a tractor trailer only but these EV trucks they're gonna cost over $300,000 do you know that the batteries there's two 8,000 pound batteries in these trucks they weigh 16,000 pounds now most trucks in the United States only have a gross vehicle weight of about 80,000 pounds on the road because the roads can't take it anything more than that so you're gonna lose 20% of your cargo load now you have to stop now a diesel truck has two 150 gallon tanks plus another diesel tank for the refrigeration up front you only have to stop once on an 1800 mile run you get 1600 to 1800 miles with the electric vehicles the most range they've gotten so far is about 377 miles if I'm not correct and every time you stop to charge you use the power of 200 homes from the grid and it takes 10 hours to charge so good luck getting strawberries from California to shop right on Long Island New York in anything less than a week and it's gonna be devastating for the industry and it only takes 20 to 40 minutes to fill up your truck with diesel and you don't create the torque with EV that a diesel can only diesel and diesel is also non flammable Volvo released the line of electric trucks and they're telling you not to keep them indoors because all your other trucks are gonna burn down so what's going on here are mandates that in some states are going to be in as early as 2030 I think parts of California and some of the ports and these guys are already and this guy Mike Kutarsky from JK JKC trucking it's the largest refrigerator truck company in America he drives a Prius and you know he gets 57 miles a gallon he's not knocking innovation but it's got to be market-fed it's got it can't be can't be pushed or mandated it's got to be market driven I mean so you know either works or it doesn't and he's proponent of even hybrid technology but it should incorporate hydrogen but hydrogen is very flammable as well but that's the only thing that can create the torque for a truck so again they're shoving these things down our throat you can't change the laws of physics and we're gonna destroy an already struggling industry yeah all right we'll do some more news with David zero do some more sports with slick Aaron and Fran holding it down as always on a Monday night live from studio 6b and we'll continue to talk about what is going on within this Republican Party and where we go from here okay we got 45 days we got no concessions we got bond all of Biden's agenda still funded for 45 more days and where do we go from there and what is the crux and the core of the problem with the Republican Party we'll get into that we'll get into some other issues as well including this New York case President Trump what happened today is some of the case gonna get thrown out on statute of limitations we'll talk about that as well and Charlie Kirk in our to buy from studio 6b I 13 to the hour live from studio 6b got an email forwarded to me here came in Damon please why don't you make a public announcement invitation demand that Mitch McConnell come on your show and answer dead serious questions about why he is so quiet about the terrible border crisis I dare you to mention this on air and demand the response from McConnell we never hear anything from him on the border David thank you for the email couple things number one you don't have to demand me just talk about it on air if you've watched this show consistently since 2015 since I've done it or since 2020 since we've been on real America's voice I've talked about Mitch McConnell incessantly hundreds of thousands of times about what a political disaster loser wussy he is he will never go on any true conservative talk show not this one not that I'm putting this show in that realm but he would never go on with Hannity he'll never go on with Levin he would have never gone on with rush he'll never go on with Ben Shapiro he'll never go on with Michael Knowles he'll never go on with Dan Bongino he'd never come on with us he'd never go on with Megyn Kelly he'd never go on with anyone he'll go on MSNBC he'll go on CNN he may go on Fox with maybe Brett Baer back when he had when he had it somewhat together but he will do no true conservative show where he'll get any real questions or pushback ever so it's a it's a moot point and again I understand the frustration but it's a total moot point he'll never do any place that he'll get any serious questions or pushback or not allowed to just you know do that for 20 minutes well no so he won't go on shows where he can't do that so it's it's a it's a moot point he's never gonna come on here for many reasons and most a lot of people won't a lot of people a lot of these Republicans won't go anywhere I want to see a Biden Fetterman and McConnell roundtable that's a no-brainer where they're gonna any serious questions none of them will that's why you see the real real conservatives even like I mean they don't have any guests on their show most of the time very few they don't have guests piled up every night because none of them will go there they want to go where they're loved that's why they you know they want to go on MSNBC it's why they take shots at Trump cuz that make the what do you think Chris Christie's on every damn channel 24-7 for that fat bastard cuz he's taking shots at Trump all the time oh let's get Christie on he took another shot at Trump put him on with Jake Tapper it'll be great get him on the view that'll be great that's what they do so thanks for the email but that's this is not gonna happen so Daniel Horowitz today the right has a problem it's not merely a Mitch McConnell or Kevin McCarthy problem it's a Republican Party problem conservatives will never have leverage to fight the issues that matter in any meaningful way until we find a new home that is the stone-cold truth of the matter before we can move forward we all must face this inconvenient reality on Saturday 82% of Senate Republicans 82% and 50% of the allegedly more conservative House GOP conference voted to continue funding every single odious Biden administration policy including destructive inflationary spending for another seven weeks without a single concession in return in doing so they show that they fear the partial shutdown more than they fear anything else that the government's targeting a government shutdown has not been averted because we now face the ultimate government shutdown indefinitely with no strategy or political vehicle to end it Republicans began this year with the most auspicious potential to block Joe Biden's agenda they had the twin leverage points of the debt ceiling the budget deadline whereby they could have refused to grant Joe Biden any more funding for any of his harmful Marxist policies without serious concessions to the Republicans in many respect Republicans had more leverage than ever before because they could theoretically govern with a simple majority in the house while Democrats needed 60 votes to use their majority in the Senate moreover unlike during the ten years of Bill Clinton or Barack Obama Democrats are saddled with an extremely unpopular president who could not command the bully pulpit during any shutdown fight so of course what happened Republicans in June gave Biden a blank check for the remainder of his term by suspending the debt ceiling until 2025 more time than he had asked for the debt has grown quicker than ever before as a result the GOP's final leverage point was the budget and the anticipation of the border invasion gave congressional Republicans the perfect mandate to fight through a government shutdown yet with both of these leverage points Republican leaders showed us that there is no degree of danger in which Biden can place this country in that would prompt them to engage in any brinkmanship whatsoever they wouldn't even go up to the line and allow a lapse in funding for at least Sunday when most government facilities are closed anyway they fear one minute of temporary funding lapse more than they fear inflation debt illegal aliens and the FBI picking off their political opponents you should shudder to think exactly what it would take to shift Republican leaders attention away from the old paradigm everything we have been through these past few years was evidently not enough it's also shocking how Republicans had no problem shutting down the entire country for months yet they zealously clamor to avoid one minute of a partial federal furlough over a weekend what's clear is nothing has changed about this party since the era of Trump began not among leadership not among the overwhelming majority of rank-and-file members if they can't even fight for a few days into a government shutdown over issues like the border inflation debt against this Democrat president and these Democrat opponents they will never fight for us ever we will now suffer through endless inflation invasion at the border war on our energy war on our freedoms political persecution with zero backstop in sight there was quite literally nothing Democrats can do that would seem to elicit a unified righteous response from the Republican Party it's not that they don't have values they certainly care deeply about funding Ukraine it's just that you and I are not part of their value system and that really is the main point now that we can't even wait till 2025 to redress any of the aforementioned crises but nothing will change then either even if Republicans win all three branches with such a maniacal degree of fear of a debt ceiling or budget funding lamps Republicans will never have leverage to fulfill a single campaign promise assuming any of those promises are even a little sincere Democrats will always have enough votes in the Senate to filibuster any GOP budget bill GOP leaders have made it clear that they will never allow the government to shut down not even for a day by definition that means the Democrats will always win a budget fight a hundred percent of the time we need not speculate about the future when in fact this is what occurred when Republicans controlled the trifecta of government with Donald Trump as president McConnell as Senate Majority Leader Paul Ryan is Speaker of the House and as I noted earlier this year Kevin McCarthy was the House Majority Leader and shepherded nearly every budget bill through the floor with more support from Democrats than they had from Republicans nothing has changed from then and nothing will but it's worse than the political math at the federal level in more than 20 states Republicans enjoy control of all three branches with filibuster proof majorities why is it we can barely find Republicans outside of Florida willing to fight on issues such as green energy and illegal immigration they wield dominant majorities in some states to the point where there aren't enough Democrats to populate all of the committees yet Republicans still betray us at some point we have to face the music that the obstacle the reform has nothing to do with the Democrats the Republican Party is the problem more sports news coming up all right hour two nine o'clock on the East Coast real America's voice glad you're in on a Monday October 2nd new week new month lots to talk about lots to do everybody's complaining

Oscar Obleu watch this footage it's heartbreaking so if I could talk over this you know what you're watching is illegals on their way up I don't know if they're in the u.s.
The Second Republican Debate Was Sort of Disastrous...
"Doesn't it feel like we're sort of just going through the motions now? And I know you're going to call me and yell at me and you're going to be mad at me because, oh, you're just a Trumper. You're a Trumpist. You're MAGA. You're just a delusional Trump supporter. Did you see that mess last night? Did you see those petulant, arguing folks on that stage and the horrible moderators and the terrible execution of one of the worst debates in television history? I am thinking about going back to before I was born with the Kennedy -Nixon debate, the famous debate that Nixon won on radio but Kennedy won on television because he was the one guy on that debate stage in 1960, I guess, who was smart enough to have somebody put some makeup on. And Nixon didn't look good, but he sounded great on radio. To people who just heard it, I mean, just think about the great historic debates of our time, the moments of clarity when somebody said, gosh, that's my guy, where the viewers said this was a moment. Well, the only moment last night was like Don Rickles over at Chuckles Comedy Club in Poughkeepsie, Chris Christie, making an absolute fool of himself. Can you imagine thinking that calling Donald Trump Donald Duck because he ducked the debate last night, can you imagine thinking that's a good idea?
Fresh update on "christie" discussed on Mark Levin
"Dan bishop and byron donalds are they all rhinos and neo -cons these are the most conservative members of the house of representatives who it when hacking jeffries in the squad matt gates of course matt gates now says he can accept anybody pretty much anybody this guy elmer is a liberal so i can vote for him are you out of your mind you andy biggs mr anti convention of states he's mr conservative are you kidding me he was was on the floor today spoke the longest was utterly incomprehensible matt rosendale who said he was involved in making sure that the republicans didn't have a bigger victory does that sound i like people who hate the democrat party because they hate us and by way the many people who lost their races in the midterms were conservatives and the idiots celebrating it we only have one way to take congress we have to win the elections with conservatives reagan he wants to be a senator now from montana you've nancy mace not heard another host on radio or tv criticize this head case as much as i have they put it on tv why because she hates trump that's why he votes against mccar he promised me he'd something do about guns and women's issues okay there's another one saving america ken buck all over msnbc over the weekend all over cnn trashing conservatives while pretending to be fun refusing to vote against funding drag queens at the pentagon we're going to follow him off off the cliff oh come on thank this is a disgrace those of you who've been with this program for twenty one years you know that we you and we led the charge to get rid of bainer i did it with mark meadows and we did it together we led the charge to help push paul ryan out of office you and me not the other hosts not any tv host we did this so when i tell you that this is different we've been together long enough it's not that i've changed it said i refuse to go along in pickett's charge i refuse to go along with the kamikazes who are funding the government at levels higher than the proposal that they voted again and why is it that they're never questioned and their character and their their purpose why is that i'm not running for office they're office how can you say out of one side of your mouth this guy at least no good and then support his lieutenant scolese you how can you do that or support even a little more liberal members i'll tell you what what scares me is suckers and now we might lose everything you we might lose everything the plan for a thirty percent cut overall what was an eight percent overall thirty percent in certain departments because they were protecting defense the veterans think we should do that i do in the most conservative border and or ever the plan was that the real conservatives in the house the broys the byron donalds and others others negotiated that deal with the so -called moderates and in liberals the republican party so they had it together then they had discussed this and made a deal with senate conservatives that they get a bill like this over to them and then they would take and it use it to hammer mcconnell and and gate says no i need every bill has to be voted on a you and are telling me if they put a bill on the floor today to cut the government twenty five percent across the board with certain exceptions by the way something that i would support that you folks wouldn't support it well they did now now have this forty five day continuing resolution so they stop the conservatives in the house the real conservatives in the house and the real conservatives in the senate from doing what they wanted to do and then they complain that there's gonna be more spending they they were told that this would lead to more spending then they complain that the borders open oh they're the real conservatives oh baby why they know how to pull those heartstrings we we have a thirty three trillion dollar deficit you heard thomas macy and me i never heard back gates about that three years ago or four years ago when we were pounding the table right here and i wrote a whole damn book about it be careful be period i've had it up to here with washington i'm sick and tired of the whole damn thing and sick and tired of phony conservatives you're under arrest who undermine real conservatives we're not talking about larry hogan and chris christie and the other reprobates now

Fresh update on "christie" discussed on The Financial Guys
"What can happen in this debate or in the potential debate in November, if Trump goes, if Trump doesn't go, doesn't matter. What's the play for these other candidates, Caroline? Because Chris Christie's obviously is Trump's the worst. I can't stand him. That's Chris Christie's platform. The platform of the vague is very similar to that of Donald Trump. I really don't know what Ron DeSantis is doing to separate himself personally. What are the plays for these other people? I really don't know. That's a question you'd have to ask them. The only thing I know is that they are burning through millions and millions of dollars in their donors' cash. And their only return on investment is their plummet and demise in the polls. Nobody is catching up to Donald Trump. He has held a steady, commanding, dominant lead in this primary for months now. 30 points in Iowa, 30 points in New Hampshire, 40-plus points in many of the other early primary states. You've seen Ron DeSantis. He was the establishment darling, if you will, at the beginning of this primary. The legacy media was all about him. The corporate donor class that wants to try and buy our elections while we want to decide our elections were all about him too. Gave him hundreds of millions of dollars and he's burned it. And what has it gotten him? He's fifth in New Hampshire. He's fighting for his political life in second place in Iowa. He's now third or fourth maybe in South Carolina. And he's trending backwards and there's a couple of reasons. First of all, voters can smell a phony from a mile away. Ron DeSantis is a phony. He's a fake. He's owned by the corporate billionaire donor class. He's flip-flopped on multiple issues, particularly the war in Ukraine, which is the greatest foreign policy issue pressing the American people at this time. He called it a territorial dispute and one of his main billionaire donors didn't like that very much. And so just a couple of days later, Ron DeSantis walked that back and pledged to continually support the war in Ukraine. And so if he's already being pushed around now and he's not even our nominee, imagine what will happen when those donors feel as though they've bought him the White House. Donald Trump is the only candidate in America on both sides that cannot be bought. He is running because he loves this country. He loves this country's people. And he wants to save it from the hell that Joe Biden has put it through. Look at the record achievements that Donald Trump accomplished in his first term in office. You had a signing of the Abraham Accords, a Middle East peace agreement that no one could have ever dreamed of before an outsider like Donald Trump walked into the White House. You had record low unemployment for all Americans, Hispanic Americans, women, Black Americans. Everyone was making a heck of a lot more money than they are now under Bidenomics and Joe Biden. Our border was secure. Our law enforcement felt heard. There was peace around the world and also here at home. And so the American public wants that again. None of these other Republican candidates have a snowball's chance in hell at winning this nomination. And it's time for them, frankly, to suck up their ego, suck up their pride, and unify, drop out, endorse Donald Trump so we can take this fight and use these resources to go after Joe Biden and save our country.

I was just saying the news channel product last night was fun and it was great to hook up from the house and just join you in the immediate aftermath. We've slept on it now. Do you feel any differently? I may resent it even more now than I did last night. What a colossal waste of time. Not for Donald Trump. The winner was Donald Trump. That's just it. I mean, and you said it earlier. He's he's a genius once again in his decision to stay away. And I've been thinking a lot about DeSantis's decision to go after Trump on this issue. I would think, you know, Governor DeSantis, if he has any chance at all, has to win over Trump supporters. Correct. How do you win over Trump supporters by trashing the guy who made the brilliant decision to stay away from that train wreck last night? And it was a train wreck. How many times in your career, Mark, have you decided to do something that you just wish like heck you could take back? I mean, I don't know. Maybe. Oh, I could. I could just start with Monday. You know, I mean, if you're Dana Perino, you're going to spend the rest of your career asking yourself, why did I think the survivor question was going to go over? Well, so stupid. So stupid. And that couldn't have been couldn't have been her. That's got to be some staffer, even some executive or some consultant who said, hey, let's lighten the mood or do something kind of fun. And sometimes I'm actually OK with the moment that sort of humanizes them. I mean, like in a one on one debate or maybe when there's just two or three people left or to say, look, you guys are up there to sort of knock each other around. Tell me one really good, praiseworthy thing about each other, you know, about you, about your opponent. And that's kind of neat. And it sort of cuts. But this was so unbelievably stupid. And and there were a lot of cringe moments. I mean, poor Mike Pence. I've slept with the school teacher for 38 years. And everybody kind of groaned. And Chris Christie, oh, you're not Donald Trump. You're Donald Duck. Somebody wrote that for him and he thought it would go well. Or maybe it was his. Once again, I don't know whose idea it was, but it was terrible. And let's go back to programing decisions. The Univision lady, are you serious? I want to be as careful as I've ever been for anything. Univision, God bless them. Great. Univision, whatever Hispanic news media. Great. And I bet she's great on it. I bet she's wonderful.

A highlight from Republican Debates, Election Predictions, and Media Criticism
"At some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick along with my partner, Mike Speraza. We are always excited to be here, Mike. Um, we are here after the second Bill's win. Yeah. Yeah. We will, we'll keep it at that. Every time we talk very little, things go well. So let's, let's keep it at a win and big game Sunday. Miami. What should be right. A massively popular game. I mean, when they put up 70 against Denver and we, we basically, did we shut out the three points? Three, three. Okay. We held, held Washington, the Washington commanders to only three. That should be a really, really dynamite game. So. Had to change their name due to political correctness. I know, I know. And we had some conversation about that. The people I was watching the game with were reflecting on, I guess the good old days when the, the nicknames of teams just didn't seem to matter as much, but it matters now. Now they want to take down statues. You're an Iroquois guy. They're taking that name away. The chiefs because apparently saying chiefs is very, uh, politically incorrect. I mean, a leader. You can't be called the leaders anymore. Maybe it'll be the Iroquois comrades because everyone's got to just hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Yeah. And, and you know, nobody gets a gender anymore. Nobody can dominate one or the other. Even if it's a sport, there really might not even ever be winners or losers. They might not even keep score anymore in sports. Like it's just going to be for the experience of it trophy for the trophy for the trophy. Line them all up. They're all going to look exactly the same. There'll be gender neutral trophies. When will we have a they, them team name? Like the, the Washington they, thems, like when, when, I mean, I know that sounds outrageous, but that's where we're headed. Yeah, it's true. It's going to be comrades. Friends. Yeah. The friends, the Iroquois friends, the Iroquois comrades. It literally is heading that way though. Something where you go, what is, what is this sport? Like we don't even know based on the name, what the sport is. We don't even, yeah. You won't know. Like usually you could derive some more information from things like that. Oh, no, no, not anymore. No, you're going to have to dig real deep. You're going to have to show up at these events and, uh, you know, maybe wear a nice hoodie and a pair of shorts at the events. Yeah, I agree with you. And, uh, you know, maybe right after you went through the Senate chambers to vote on something, you can head and do a game with your hoodie and shorts on. Anyway, the next one, the last thing I'll say is the next one will be the Patriots. They'll be getting their name taken because that represents Donald Trump and his movement. We got to take away the name Patriot, right? That'll be the next one. There you go. You know, I just, I can't with these people anymore. It's really getting to be absurd. Yep. Totally. So, uh, Mike, let's start with this one. A second Republican debate coming this Wednesday night, September 27th, and Dana Perino, who I've always enjoyed listening to. Um, she will be joining Stuart Varney and Ilia Calderon at the Ronald Reagan library. presidential Suitable place. I love it. Yeah. And, uh, I, we were just chatting a bit before the podcast, so let's just line this up. All right. I don't know the order, but we're going to have Pence, Christie, DeSantis, Rama, Swami, uh, Doug Burgum made it Dougie Dougie. Um, who is that? Who else? I'm I've got five Nikki Haley. Thank you. And then, uh, there should be one more. Um, I did pens from, let's write this down. One more time for everybody. Pence, Rama, Swami, right? DeSantis. How do I not remember? Tim Scott, Tim Scott. Thank you. So, so seven this time, um, not Asa Hutchinson, I think you said he, he didn't make it. Didn't qualify. So, um, of course the big elephant in the room is that Donald Trump again will not be there. Just tell me your thoughts, I guess, on this next upcoming debate. Are we going to hear anything different? Is there any going to be anything that really makes people go, Whoa, this guy's really racing to the front or female. Um, if it's Nikki Haley, anyone going to race to the front after this one? I really, I mean, I think we're kind of wasting our time here and I'm not saying it as a, as a Trump voter. I'm just saying it realistically. Right. I mean, at this point, the lead is 40 to 50 points. Nobody makes up that ground than a debate, right? Like Nikki Haley had a great debate last time. She's still polling single digits. Right. I don't agree with Nikki Haley stance on a lot of things, but she, she fared well in that debate and she really didn't grow or fall behind anymore. Right. So I think that's the tough part. When we look at these debates, the Donald Trump in the 2015, 2016 campaign years, that is your like unicorn, right? Where, where you just go up there and go bananas. And then you end up, you know, taking over the field. The difference was there was no Donald Trump in that election, right? Like you had a Jeb Bush, but he wasn't the guaranteed slam dunk candidate right now. You have Donald Trump, Mike, and he is the guaranteed slammed on Canada. The only one that we thought maybe had a chance was Ron DeSantis and he has crumbled mightily, whether you like him or hate him. It's just the facts. He's, he's in trouble. Right. I mean, so what, what are we accomplishing with these debates other than kind of a, I guess I'll say wasting our time. Yeah. And I, I just, I just think it's worth breaking this down a little bit. Like what is it that people like you and I think that these others are just inferior to a guy like a Donald Trump? Like, and I'll tell you my opinion first. Mine is I just don't think they'll win. And I just feel like more and more people need to, you got to vote and expect that the conservative Republican candidate in this case wins. And I don't think any of these other people could, could actually win. I don't think they have enough, you know, experience. They don't have the fortitude that a Donald Trump has. Well, I think that that to me is, is there's two reasons why I'm voting for Donald Trump, right? Number one was I thought he had a very good four year term other than the COVID 19 issue. And I, I'm telling you right now, I say this to people all the time. If it was Ron DeSantis, if it was Donald Trump, if it was Hillary Clinton, that, that, that whole debacle was, was a disaster and there was no way you were going to look good in that debacle. I'm just telling you. Yeah. Number one, but that was a Trump fault that I have. And if I ever talked to him, I would tell him that that I do not agree with what he did with COVID. It's easy for me to say that now, but, but at the end of the day, he had a great four year term other than that, in my personal opinion. Number two is every time they've tried to knock him down at the knees, Mike, that has made me want him back more, right? The, the every time they indict him, I want him back more, right? Every time they try and silence him with gag orders, I want him back more. This is how I think a lot of conservatives are feeling. And at this point, it's kind of like, okay, is Rhonda, here's what my other point, I don't mean to keep going on, but at the end of the day is whether it's Ron, DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, or Donald Trump, I'm going to use those three for a second. They will be treated the exact same way by the media, by the Democrat party. It doesn't matter who that candidate is. It doesn't matter. Right. People always say like, Oh, but, but Trump's hated. If DeSantis is a candidate, he's already taken crap from the leftist media, right? Like if he's the candidate, he's going to, it's going to be open up another can of worms. I don't think it matters. The reason why we got to go with Donald Trump is he's been there. He's been able to handle it. We know that whether you like him or not, he's handled the media and he's handled the Democrats well. And we need that experience. This is the election of our lifetime. And I will say that now, this is the election of our lifetime. We need to win. Dana Perino says, I believe the economy will feature prominently because we know that that is the biggest concern and preoccupation that is worrying Americans. And she says in many ways, in my opinion, the economy is the thread that runs through all of these other possible topics. For example, if you're concerned about crime, one of the issues is what kind of resources do you have and are you willing to use in order to help deal with that? I think she's spot on. I think when it comes to the economy, the economy sort of is the fuel and whether you then have a notion to, you know, actually shut down the border, improve childcare, improve education, then the, the economy obviously is the main thread that actually everything else seems to branch off of. If you have a lot of people working, for instance, you're going to have a thriving economy because supply and demand is going to balance out. You're going to have lots of products and services to offer and a lot of people can afford these things. Right. So, uh, I, I agree with her. Plus it is Fox business that's hosting the event. So might lean a little bit more toward economics. Yeah, I think it should. I agree with you. I mean, at some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas at some point, you know, and I say, I've said this to you, Mike before, going to get groceries now at times, like they ring all the stuff up and I'm like, Holy crap. I bought, I have a cat. I bought five cans of cat food. They're, they're the size of like a lacrosse ball, not even. And it's like $5 for five cans. I'm like this, this thing costs more than my kids at this point. This cat's going to be very thin. It's going to be out of crash diet. I mean, but seriously, how do people, Mike, that don't make money? And I say this in a sad way, like how do people that don't make money survive? Even going, you go to a local fast food restaurant for two people. My wife and I it's 30 bucks. I'm like, what the hell happened out here? I told that is what's going on. And that's scary. Yeah. When they have to make those kinds of hard choices. Right. Uh, all right. So, uh, let's move on. So speaking of Trump, we're talking about these other seven candidates that will be there Wednesday, this Wednesday night, nine to 11 PM in the second Republican debate, Donald Trump will not be there, but this came out like in a Washington post poll. Trump is now up 10%, uh, over a potential run against Biden, 10 % double digit. Now if you just pin Trump against Biden again, first your thoughts, and then we'll go a little deeper into this. Well, I'm not surprised. Um, I think, I think Americans are getting sick and tired of it. I think Americans are worried about our futures. I think the migrant crisis is hurting the Democrat party because you have liberal places like New York city that are waking up saying, Oh my God, we can't do this anymore. And there's like 10 ,000 migrants in New York city, not 10 million. Right. So like, like it's starting to click, I think with certain people, number one, number two, Mike, I think it's hard to hide Joe Biden's cognitive decline, right? The left can say whatever they want in the media. You just can't, when you fall over on things, when you do talk like that, I mean, they, it's a problem. It's a real problem and it's visible. Um, do I trust these polls? Yes and no. I think, if I think America is as smart as I think they would, the polls should be probably higher, like 30 % lead for Trump. Um, but I think the numbers that keep growing in Trump's favor, the margin of error is not that big, right? Michael, like you look at the Republican primary polls, the margin of error is not 40%, right? He's up 40%. So even if they're off by 20%, he's still up 20%. The same thing's starting to happen in these head to head polls with Biden. It started, you know, Trump down, then it was Trump even, then it was Trump three, five, now it's 10. I mean, that's a lot. Yeah. And so I want to read a little bit here. So the post ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage in the election cycle. This is, by the way, the Washington Post little write -up, uh, after the poll was done. Um, so this is, this is actually humorous. Although the sizable margin of Trump's lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest to virtual dead heat, the difference between this poll and others as well as the unusual makeup of Trump's and Biden's coalitions in the survey. So Mike, the more words, the muddier this all gets, right? It sounds like excuses coming up, right? It sounds like Kamala Harris. It really is. It's like, yeah, total word salad. Um, I just said suggested is probably an outlier, right? So, so this, this I thought was interesting. Um, Byron Byron York of the Washington examiner said the post dumped on headline news in quotes from its own poll. So basically they do a poll. They say that their poll is likely an outlier and, and he, he goes on to then say Washington Post sub heads suggests its own poll may be an outlier. That may be true, but they put no such disclaimer in headline three years ago when they published a poll of Wisconsin, right before election day in 2020, showing Biden up 17 points on Trump, 10 points more than the average of other polls at the time. That was real clear politics, president Tom Bevin. So, so funny to me, so interesting, right? Even when they try to do something where they want to take part in the polling process and inform all of us as Americans, Ooh, that's not really where we wanted to see that. That's likely an outlier folks. Yeah. Oh, Donald Trump's winning. Shit. That doesn't count. Okay. What are we going to do? Next one. Okay. These were registered voters. What are we going to do? This is 10 points. Holy shit. What are we going to say? Let's just say it's an outlier. Oh damn. That was a fake poll. Oh, those stupid polls. Yeah. I mean, and it might, I'll say this before we get onto another topic on what's, what's, you're starting to see it all come together. It's like, it's like when they see, you know, hurricanes forming in the ocean, right? We're starting to see it now. The polls are shifting to Trump. Now we have Hillary Clinton coming out saying things like, Oh yeah, who's to say Putin won't medal in the election in 2024 again, right? You have others saying like, Ooh, we got to get Trump off the ballot or people saying, let's indict Trump again for this or that let's put gag orders on him. It's all coming together. Now the new thing too, Mike is, Hmm, let's indict the Bidens and let's see if we can get, we can get a Joe Biden off the ticket. We've used him, we've abused him. Now we're getting them out of here. It's all, it's that wave in the ocean. It's that hurricane forming in the ocean. That's what's happening. And I believe that because why, why would Hillary Clinton come out and say, if you're so confident right in the 2024 election, if you're so confident and Trump's an idiot, he's never going to make it again and get rid of them. Why are you now saying, Hmm, maybe Putin will medal in the elections again. Why would you say that? Right. Right. And by the way, this is the same guy that's richer than ever because his country has been able to sell oil at a high rate since Biden's been in office. This is the same country that has had its way with the Ukraine walking in there and taking over land since Biden's been in there. Why would, why would Putin medal in the election to get in and probably in his mind, the nut job of Donald Trump back in office, it may drop a nuke on him. Why would he want Trump back in office? Ask yourself that question. Don't have to, if you have any sense at all, then you don't even have to ask that. Um, so anyway, let's see what the next number of polls start to reveal. Let's see if, let's see if polls stop coming out, Mike, right? Because once you have one that's got Trump winning by double digit, maybe they just start to say, polls are stupid. Polls are for racists. You're homophobic. If you read polls, I mean, we'll see. Or they come out with some poll from the middle of nowhere. That's like Biden up 35 points on Donald Trump. Right, right. This was from registered voters in the white house. Yes. We interviewed seven people and it was six to one, six to one. And the other one we fired, we don't even know who that was. Yeah. So, so let's go to this now. Every once in a while, Mike, I have to do this CNN, right? I go to the cnn .com site. I just got to see what they're finding note newsworthy, noteworthy, whatever you want to say. And honestly, and I've often reported this, I'm often in disbelief at what they aren't reporting. In this example though, I was like, Oh, a few stories down. Here's a story, Mike, why more women are choosing not to have kids. So right away I'm thinking, Oh my gosh, these are the most unlikable people, the most anti traditional family structure people ever. They probably don't want to have a relationship at all. They don't want to ever have true, you know, intimacy with anybody cause they just can't do it. They're just nasty. They're mostly on, you know, just awful. These lots, so many of these people. So I go on to read a little bit of this and you know, this is, this is someone named Diana Volek who, who never, who was never someone who dreamed of becoming a mother, right? And these are just some of the reasons given. They don't want the responsibility of being a parent. They fear a lack of support. They like their life as it is. They're still judged for being child free. So so even when they don't choose to have children, right? So I'm like looking at this and then suddenly I go, wait a second. This was published at midnight, uh, basically Sunday or Monday, you know, September 25th. That's that's now as we record editor's note, this story was originally published in August, 2021. Some details such as the ages of those interviewed remain the same as they were when the story first published. So you're telling me right away, I thought, is the Hollywood writers strike? Is it bleeding into CNN now? Cause there aren't enough stories. There aren't enough people to write like modern stories. There's not enough news. They had to pull a story from two years ago to talk about why many women are deciding not to have kids. Like how pathetic is that? How pathetic. This new trend too, of like, it's cool to just say, screw it. I don't want to have a family is the weirdest thing ever. And then we wonder why these people are miserable, right? I mean, again, is parenting easy? I'm a new parent. Mike, you know that you, you parented two girls for, you know, they're what? 25, 22, right? So you've had, you've had 25 years of parenting experience. I've had, you know, almost a year. It's the most enjoyable thing ever. Right? I mean you're finally, it's good not to be selfish. It's good to take care of somebody else and love somebody else. Right. And I'm not saying you don't love your spouse, but your spouse is an adult relationship. You have to have a relationship with a baby, which turns into a toddler, which turns into an adolescent, a young adult like that. There's nothing more special than that. You should want that. Instead it's like, Oh, kids are stupid. I'm going to be so rich. Really weigh me down. Yeah, yeah, sure. Okay. They're going to weigh me down. I want my independence. I don't want to be responsible to another human being. I've got myself to worry about and treat and, and you know, I don't know, a door like I get like, that's fine. I want to see the next story though be why many women are deciding that having a child is rewarding. It can become a very loving, you know, yes, you have to be responsible. Like it just was so gross to me like that. And two years ago, this isn't even news. This is like, Oh my gosh, we got to fill these headlines. What do we get out? Pull that one again. We don't like kids. We don't want anyone, you know, raising children, my God for, you know, I'll say this though, Mike and all seriousness too. Like, yes. Is, is it fun being a college degenerate and booze and all the time and having a blast? Sure it is. We all did it right. I mean, yes, of course it's a fun thing. Is it fun to not care if you can go to bed at 2am or 5am or 5pm? Sure. That's great. But at some point you have to mature as an adult, take your job seriously, take your family seriously and care about things like I always say this, Mike, and this is something I've brought up a million times. Think about being, you know, if you want it, like if you didn't want to have kids, I'm not saying people that can't have kids cause I feel for them. But if you, if you didn't want children, cause you didn't want the responsibility, what do you do in your sixties and seventies with no family? Like that breaks my heart, honestly. Right? Like I, what my relationship with my parents, my wife's with her parents, like it's, it's fun, right? It's, you're a family. You get to do things together and you get to enjoy each other. Who doesn't want that? I just don't get it. Well, there's a lot of people in Washington that actually have spouses and children and grandchildren. And clearly there is not a lot of love and support going on between all of them. Because some of these people, I mean, we know who we're talking about, the Mitch McConnell's, the Joe Biden's, they would not be in front of microphones if people actually cared about them. They would not let those loved ones go through what they go through on a daily basis, unless they have no connection, no personal connection at all. Um, all right. AOC. She's almost the last story of our day, but there's one more after this. So we got a bonus. We do a bonus story here, breaking news. So AOC wins the hypocrisy award mic for this, uh, at least this week, maybe the year on this one decade, this is hilarious. And, um, I'll just set this up for a second. So here she was on CBS's face the nation. And, um, she was discussing president Biden's plan to visit the Michigan auto workers on Tuesday. So host of CBS's face, the nation, Margaret Brennan points out a couple of interesting facts about AOC and her selection of vehicles. So let's go ahead and play that. Yup.
A highlight from Special Guest Krista Kim on Web3, Wellness, and Digital Consciousness
"Hello, and welcome to Crypto Cafe with Randi Zuckerberg, where we embrace newcomers and experts alike to all things crypto, NFTs, artificial intelligence, and all the latest disruptive and innovative technology. I am thrilled to bring you an exciting special guest episode today, focusing on tech as a mechanism for wellness. Definitely, for more on this topic, you can check out all of our resources at HUG, that's the HUG .XYZ. And with that, I am so excited to introduce today's special guest, who has been a guest on my radio show before. We had such an incredible conversation that I wanted to bring it here to the podcast. Christa Kim is a digital artist and founder of Techism. Her work explores the concept of digital consciousness. Also the co -founder of creative immersive production studio, Zero Studio. Her work has been featured everywhere, Christie's, Sotheby's, Times Square, Venice, you name it. Christa, what a pleasure to have you on the podcast today. It's such a pleasure to be with you today. Thank you, Randi. Anytime that I get to talk to you is a great day. I'd love to just hear a little bit about how you got into the digital art world. What inspired you? Was there one aha moment or was it a series of events? I love that question. Well, it actually came about when I was living in Japan. I was painting and I was very much interested in creating Zen art because I was very influenced by the art in Japan because there's so much Zen. It's really the pinnacle of Zen art and craftsmanship. It was in Kyoto when I visited, I was living in Tokyo for three and a half years. Kyoto is the place that really changed my life. It was in 2015 that I had my first encounter with the Roenji Temple Garden, which is one of the most sacred Zen gardens in the world. It was built about 500 years ago by Zen monks. My encounter with it was very, very shocking. Not shocking in a jolting way, but a revelation because the space was so Zen. It was composed so beautifully with a beautiful negative space, the concept of ma, creating the negative space as part of the composition and having an actual value in the composition. Zen came over me and I thought, my goodness, it's an immersive experience that these Zen monks created hundreds of years ago. I came away from that knowing that I too wanted to participate in this movement. It was when I was enrolled in the La Salle College of the Arts, Masters of Fine Art program in Singapore. I moved there in 2010. It was around 2011, 2012 when I started to really consider digital, of course, the future because my smartphone, social media, this was really taking over my interaction with pen and paper. I thought, light is the new ink. That's when I decided I want to use the screen because I saw that the screen was just so addictive and that TV screens also were very addictive. I thought, I want to use a screen as a mechanism for Zen, for healing, for wellness. That's what began my journey. It's so beautiful. I'm wondering after that experience, what is it that makes you get up in the morning and motivates you? What's the impact that you want your art and your life to have? I want to create healing, inspiring, and art that brings people together through the digital medium. I want to bring it around the world. I want to change people's consciousness from that of passive consumers into conscious co -creation. I want people to be empowered through creativity and also understand that ancient practices of meditation and well -being and wellness, all of these ancient practices that have basically served humanity for thousands of years should be reinterpreted for the digital age. That's what really makes me wake up in the morning and is motivated to create. I meditate every day, Randi. It's transcendental meditation that truly transformed my life and I really began to do it seriously while I was enrolled in the Masters of Fine Art program in Singapore. I started in 2013 and it has really informed my mission and to bring meditation to the masses through the digital medium.
A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.
A highlight from The Senate Doesn't Seem to Care About Crypto Anymore
"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 Wednesday, September 13th, and today we are talking about news that Binance US CEO has left the company. 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, last night I had assumed that today's show would be some combination of Gary Gensler testifying before the Senate with maybe a little side of CPI. But then last night, new Binance news broke that had the whole community chattering. So that's where we're going to start. According to anonymous sources, Binance US CEO Brian Schroeder has left the company. Chief legal officer Norman Reed will step into the role on an interim basis. Alongside the resignation, Binance US announced internally that it will slash around one third of its workforce, laying off approximately 100 employees. This is the second round of layoffs for the US -based exchange as they dig in to fight legal battles against the SEC and the CFTC. Binance US said in a statement, Now, if you are paying attention, not even closely, just at all, you will know that this is the latest in a series of high -profile departures across the Binance empire. At least 11 executives have now resigned across all Binance companies. Three key personnel left on the same day in July, including front -facing Chief Strategy Officer Patrick Hillman, amid rumors of dissatisfaction with how Binance CEO CZ handled rumors of a DOJ investigation. Five more executives quit earlier this month, with the headline resignation coming from Leon Fung, the head of Asia -Pacific operations. In all cases, the resignations have been officially explained by a range of personal reasons, probably capstone by former compliance officer Steven Christie's extremely weird Twitter thread, which included the statement that, Now, the wide -ranging lawsuits against Binance have largely come home to roost for their US subsidiary. Both the SEC and CFTC cases include allegations that reach deep within the international Binance empire. However, regulators have been careful to focus their attention on Binance US to ensure that they have clear jurisdiction. A key focus of litigation so far has been the flow of funds between Binance US and the international organization. All of this means that the focus on the domestic exchange has led to the US subsidiary taking the brunt of the consequences so far. More acutely, Binance US was essentially cut off from all access to onshore banking, forcing them to operate as a crypto -only exchange. This shutdown of financial services has led to a dramatic collapse in trading volume. Binance US captured around 22 % of US market share in April, but this figure has now dropped below 1 % as traders quite reasonably flee to safer shores. Schroeder is now the third Binance US CEO to walk away from the role. Both Kathryn Coley and Brian Brooks, who earlier served as CEOs for the exchange, have provided extensive testimony to regulators and law enforcement. Schroeder joined the firm as president in September 2021, well into the company's claimed attempt to clean up their operations. One consequence of that could be that he has significantly less scandalous information on how the exchange functioned than other former executives. So what are the community's takes on this? Well, as you would expect, the anti -crypto folks are cheering. They see Binance as the next and perhaps ultimate shoe to drop. However, many folks in the industry, regardless of what they think of Binance, view it as a sad episode that shows just how problematic the SEC's approach really is. Wolf of All Street's host Scott Melker said, The SEC killed Binance US without proving a single thing, without due process. It simply took accusations to scare away customers and partners. This is the legacy of Gary Gensler. Another take which I resonate with strongly comes from folks like Byzantine General who wrote, I don't know why people are up in arms about this. I thought it was quite obvious already since the SEC lawsuit that Binance was just going to wind down operations of their US branch. It's so small and completely inconsequential to Binance anyway. Or more crisply from Icebergi, just closed down Binance US already. It has seemed untenable for quite some time and this only seems to reinforce that point of view. Now the other big generator of conversation was investor Adam Cochrane. He tweeted, I've been saying if Binance blows up, we'll be fine in no time. Got a tip that I've not yet been able to fully verify, but I would lean towards it being true on, and if it's true, it'll be a longer, more painful ride than I thought. Life behind bars would be the good outcome for CZ. I've sent that tip to some journalists I think can confirm if it's real and will keep folks updated if I get anything back. But in good faith I had to redact my will be fine stance and replace it with, we'll probably be okay unless this other part is real, in which case holy eff we're really going to zero and going to have to rebuild up again over time. Anyway, fun times in crypto. Now this certainly got people chattering, but not always in a good way. Zero Knowledge consulting partner and founder Austin Campbell quote tweeted it and said, If you have a financial interest in an outcome and post that you have a rumor without saying what the rumor is, you are part of the problem in this space. This would have been prohibited conduct in most regulated markets. I certainly would have gotten in trouble for this at JPM. Now, interestingly, however, 4Lex4Shaw had a different take. They wrote, It's all so tiresome. Binance had the support of dozens of governments from Singapore to UAE to every corner of the global south, and Tether too. The U .S. can't cut the UAE, Caymans, Bahamas, and Singapore out of Eurodollar markets, so it can't de -dollarize Binance. Any successful prosecution of Binance has to cut off Binance's access to USDT, cut Binance off from access to UAE, Singapore, etc., Eurodollars, or prove beyond a shadow of a doubt a huge hole in Binance's balance sheet, i .e. accounting fraud. Everything else is just low -budget theater. If the U .S. can accomplish one of those things, Binance is dead. If the U .S. can't, CZ doesn't have to give a crap about what the U .S. government says, indicts, or cajoles. The latter possibility breaks a lot of people's brains, but I don't make the rules. The interesting take here is, of course, that in many ways the Tether and Binance stuff going on is kind of just a proxy war for the U .S. about the U .S. government trying to exert sovereignty over the Eurodollar market that they simply don't control. I think it's a really interesting lens through which to look at these prosecution efforts, as well as questions around USD stablecoins. Anyways, who knows what happens next with Binance, but it continues to be the biggest open question in the entire space. Now, moving back over more officially to the U .S. government side of things, SEC Chair Gary Gensler appeared before the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday at a routine oversight hearing. Now, coming into the hearing, Gensler reinforced his well -worn position on crypto and written testimony. He stated that, quote, Given this industry's wide -ranging noncompliance with the securities laws, it's not surprising that we've seen many problems in these markets. We've seen this story before. It's reminiscent of what we had in the 1920s before the federal securities laws were put in place. Brushing off the recent Ripple decision, Gensler asserted that, quote, The vast majority of crypto tokens likely meet the investment contract test. Given that most crypto tokens are subject to the securities laws, it follows that most crypto intermediaries have to comply with securities laws as well. Now, the hearing itself was kicked off by opening statements from Chairman Sherrod Brown. As the leading Democrat dealing with financial issues, any crypto legislation being moved forward in the near future would likely require Brown's seal of approval to become law. Judging from his comments about the state of the industry, that seems unlikely. Brown said, quote, The FTX collapse showed how dangerous crypto can be. But FTX wasn't a lone bad apple. It was just the most explosive example of the problems in crypto. The problems we saw at FTX are everywhere in crypto. The failure to provide real disclosure, the conflicts of interest, the risky bets with customer money that was supposed to be safe. FTX was just the biggest and the ugliest. For consumers, it adds up to billions of dollars gone. Bad actors keep flocking to crypto. They use it to launder money, to evade sanctions, to fund crime and human trafficking and terrorism. We need to protect workers and families in these markets. We need to clean up the scams and fraud. As Congress considers digital asset legislation, I'm glad the SEC is using its tool to crack down on abuse and enforce the law. Now, of course, a casual observer might suggest that 1. FTX was distinct, given that its former CEO is on trial for perpetrating fraud against his company, investors, partners and the public at large. And an observer might note that the SEC didn't use its tools to do anything about that or any of the other big examples of actual fraud and problems happening. Instead, it's wrote in after the fact to win settlements against projects too small to defend themselves and chalk it up as victories, which might, to some, be seen as much more politically motivated than actually driven by consumer protection. But that's just one take. Now, ranking Republican member Tim Scott used his opening comments to drag Gensler for his lack of engagement with congressional oversight. Scott noted that the Senate hasn't heard from Gensler since last September, despite the FTX collapse and several bank failures occurring in the interim. He said, complete and timely attention to congressional inquiries is critical to ensuring independent agencies remain transparent and accountable to the American people. Yet, sadly, your agency has fallen short in this obligation to be transparent and responsive to congressional oversight. Without pro -growth regulations, we are limiting opportunities for our kids and our kids' kids from being able to take control of their own financial futures. The American people have a right to know what their government is doing, and your agency's blatant refusal to respond to our constitutionally mandated oversight represents a dereliction of your duties to the American people. And yet, still, when all was said and done, the most striking thing about the hearing was just how much crypto had faded as a front -of -mind issue in Congress. Gensler didn't mention crypto at all in his brief oral testimony, and lawmakers had numerous more pressing concerns to discuss. Based on the questions, climate reporting rules and AI use and financial services ranked as much higher priority than crypto enforcement, even for previously fervent Democrats. We didn't even get the customary anti -crypto soundbite from Senator Elizabeth Warren, who instead used her time to rail against a perceived lack of toughness in new private equity disclosure rules. The crypto discussion, to the extent there was any, touched on pending crypto ETFs. Senator Bill Hagerty brought up the point that the SEC's rejection of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust had been labeled arbitrary and capricious by a federal judge. He asked what the SEC would need to see in order to approve a spot Bitcoin ETF, to which Gensler responded that the agency is, quote, "...still reviewing that decision and reviewing multiple filings around Bitcoin ETPs. I'm looking forward to staff's recommendations." Now, on top of some of those specifics, many GOP senators had more general criticisms for how Gensler's SEC had conducted itself. Senator Steve Daines, for example, complained that the SEC has frequently overreached its mandate in attempts to expand its jurisdiction. He suggested that 80 % of the SEC's rulemaking efforts under Gensler were not required by legislation. Daines said, "...this means that the vast majority of the agency's rulemaking agenda has been voluntarily undertaken. Chairman Gensler, you are not an elected official that is beholden to your constituents. You are an unelected bureaucrat who has taken it upon himself to reshape American markets to your liking, to the detriment of innovation, of investors, and small businesses." What's more, it seems like many in the Washington establishment are not just concerned about Gensler when it comes to the crypto markets. Earlier this week, for example, the Wall Street Journal published an op -ed article penned by former U .S. Attorney General Bill Barr. Specifically, the article warned of Gensler encroachment into regulating the use of AI. But Barr was scathing in his attack of Gensler's leadership at the SEC more broadly. He wrote, "...this is only the latest example of Mr. Gensler's grandiose regulatory style. He takes on airy theoretical issues and attacks them with broad prophylactic regulations that are long on speculation and paternalism, short on evidence and rational analysis, and heedless of Congress and the Constitution. He claims these measures will head off speculative evils, but they are more likely to throttle the dynamism of U .S. markets." So how are we to sum this all up and make sense of it? To me, this was very clearly the first hearing of the next election cycle. Crypto is now an afterthought for Congress. Or maybe better put, it is an exhibit and an example of a broader narrative which is around SEC overreach. It seems fairly clear that people aren't that interested in getting regulation done for the industry and even on the GOP side are more interested in defeating a broader political agenda embodied by Gensler. The big themes were agency overreach, major questions doctrine, and the role of unelected bureaucrats, not crypto per se. But to the extent that anyone is looking for good news as relates to the election cycle, as finance lawyer at Davis Polk Scott Johnson pointed out, for those keeping count, Senator Sherrod Brown's odds are about 60 % chance to lose his seat next year as of now. Change isn't always necessarily good, but it certainly opens up new possibilities. But gear up, because we are definitely in the election part of the cycle. Thanks as always for listening, and until next time, be safe and take care of each other.
A highlight from Former VP Pence and former Governor Christie respond to former President Trump
"Welcome back America, I'm Hugh Hewitt, former President Trump yesterday talking about my next guest, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Governor Christie ran you over with a car yesterday, backed it up, ran you over a couple more times. You're used to that. Any reactions to yesterday's interview? Look Hugh, if it wasn't so disturbing that someone like him is actually running for president, you know, I would just feel badly for him. I mean, you know, this is a guy who offered me Secretary of Homeland Security twice, who offered me Secretary of Labor, who offered me White House Chief of Staff in December of 2018. All four of those jobs I turned down. He made me chairman of his transition in 2016 and prepared the entire transition from May of 16 through the election. He made me chairman of his opioid and drug abuse commission, and then adopted every one of the recommendations of the commission that I chaired. He asked me to prepare for the debate against Hillary Clinton in 2016 and I did so. He asked me to prepare for the debates in 2020 against Joe Biden and I did so. I would assume you wouldn't ask someone to do all those things if you really thought they were not very smart and deeply disturbed. So, you know, this is a guy who makes things up as he goes I along and tell you is obviously under an extraordinary amount of pressure given what he's done, what his conduct has been, and the ramifications of that conduct. So, you know, I'm concerned for him because I think he must not be doing well to say the things he said yesterday, but I think anybody who looks at what his objective actions have been over the course of his relationship with me and what he said yesterday, they know what he was saying yesterday is just so odd and disturbing that it should make everybody question whether this guy really has the psychological capacity to be a candidate for president, let alone president again. All right, Governor, before we get to the specifics of the race, and I want to spend most of my time there. I'm in Switzerland, I'm just watching all the troops deploy, and I've seen this movie before and we'll talk about that in a second, but he said he would testify. He also said that most of the indictments against him will be dismissed. I have no opinions on this. I just ask the questions. A, will most of the indictments against him be dismissed? B, should he testify? And C, am I right that the obstruction of justice charges the submarine aim below water midships? On the first question, I do not believe that most of the indictments will be dismissed. In fact, I doubt that any of them would be dismissed. As I said before, Hugh, I think both the New York indictment and the Atlanta indictment were unnecessary, and I would not have authorized those if I was the person in charge of either of those offices, but I don't think that they're legally deficient.
What Did Mike Pence Really Do As VP?
"That's one of them. Pence brought back him into back the old Executive Office building as his right hand man. And you can see why. The guy's on TV. That is Short. Any, I won't say that. So all these If you even think you have a shot at defeating Trump, you run as an anti Biden, not an anti Trump. Just stay in a lane where you can be strong, specific, have a powerful message. You don't even have to get involved in the other stuff. You And I think this is the mistake the guys at two, three, four, five, six percent are making right now. They're going to claw their way up on the back of Trump. No, they're not. None of them are. I don't know why the Vivek Ramaswami is running at all. I have no idea. If you really look at his background, it is troubling, very troubling to me. And I am not going to make excuses for it. Period. Nor going am I to make excuses for Nikki Haley's gubernatorial record because she won't run on it. Why? Chris Christie, he's got a new line down. He's the only one running for president in the Republican primaries who defeated a Democrat governor. What he fails to tell you is Corzine was corrupt up to his eyeballs, was unethical up to his eyeballs. Democrat party members were turning against him. The major media in New Jersey were turning against him. He ran like the conquering king, the US attorney. He doesn't have that anymore. And he's not running against Corzine.
Mark Levin Roasts Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy & Mike Pence
"They love her over there the Wall Street Journal editorial page. They think she's fantastic. But she's not all that conservative. I'll just She's just not. And I don't even disagree with her on Ukraine by the way, but That Ramaswami I've given him my opinion on him. I think he's a This guy's done more business with Communist China than I think Hunter Biden. And when it comes to foreign policy he just wings it. He thinks he knows what you want to hear and he wings it. It's not good enough for me. I But it's very weird these came and look at Pence Pence. turned into like an angry science fiction The eyeballs popping out of the head and the sharp teeth, the eyeteeth and the spittle coming down. This is now how I think of Pence. The Pence I used to know Reagan -like. Not anymore. He's Christie -like. In fact, he's more Christie than Christie. He's got Trump in his brain and he can't shake it. Plus it's weird. He says the Trump -Pence team did this and the Trump -Pence team did that and then he trashes Trump. Now in his own mind he's made the distinction between policy and what happened on January 6th, but that's not going to fly. As Vice President, mostly you don't make
A highlight from THE HASH: The Best of 'The Hash' Over the Years
"Hey there, welcome to the last episode of The Hash. For now at least, it's a three box Thursday. I'm Zach Seward. We got Jensen Asse. We got Will Foxley. We're pouring one out for a great 2 .5 plus year run here on Coindesk TV. Also, Coindesk Podcast Network. It's all good stuff and all good things must come to a close. And today it is that close. So we're just going to look back, have fun, keep it loose, and maybe even talk to some other folks. But first, I think we have a highlight reel, which none of us have seen, which is a little scary. I'm very scared. It's like I'm very anxious. I am very nervous. I am going to just take the leap of faith. I'm going to throw it to the highlight reel. We're going to react. But let's watch this montage. Take it away. Gary Gensler was confirmed as the next SEC chairman. Gary Gensler said that federal financial regulators should be ready to bring cases against bad actors in crypto. Gary Gensler went on CNBC's Squawk Box this morning and said crypto investors need better protection in a space that is significantly non -compliant. Gary Gensler was getting it from all sides. They're alleging that it's the fall of Gary Gensler's SEC for failing to provide those rules of the road. We haven't had any progress. We haven't had anybody step up to check Gary Gensler and the other public servants that are getting paid with our taxpayer dollars. And that's where I draw the line. Hi, everyone, and welcome to The Hash, your daily beat on crypto news and culture. This comes, you know, I forget how many days after Elon seemingly trolled the world by putting Bitcoin in his Twitter bio. And now I guess we see why he may have been so keen on doing that. I mean, for the last few days, we've been talking about Bitcoin and other crypto assets just becoming really mainstream this year. And I think this just kind of pushes us more in that direction. Who do you think the next Tesla is going to be? Who is buying the next billion dollars worth of Bitcoin? Oh, my goodness. I got to get out of the tarot cards for this one. Now, Coinbase is the largest U .S. exchange, but I just thought this was really, really interesting. And it's reporting that, you know, shares on the secondary market are currently going for around $300, which would at its current valuation make the company more valuable than the New York Stock Exchange parent company. People are super excited about this public listing of Coinbase. Obviously, it comes at a time when Bitcoin is above $50 ,000, I think, on last check. So the timing is right for this blue chip crypto exchange, as it may one day be seen as to go public. The market value of Bitcoin has surpassed one trillion dollars. A big moment for this space. Still about a tenth of the way to the market value of gold. People is making bank and waves in the digital art world. Every day is the first 5000 days has sold for I cannot believe it. Sixty nine million dollars. That's including fees through Christie's auction house. Now, this was the first purely digital artwork to be auctioned by a major auction house. And now people is among the top three valuable living artists. They're accusing Google of using privacy to kind of keep up a fence around its market share, which is huge. And that's because they say we can't do our jobs as effectively if you remove third party cookies. But there are loopholes in other ways that Google will continue to kind of track data on customers. Meanwhile, Google, on the other hand, is saying, you know, we're pushing privacy because we do value, you know, the ability for people not to be tracked. And, you know, there have been privacy concerns over Google for a while. So it's sort of like privacy has become this interesting tug of war between these two parties. And the fact that it's getting roped into this antitrust suit or action is just kind of fascinating. I think it's something we might see more of. Doge supporters are calling for this to be the inaugural Doge Day. The aim for those people is to push the price as high as possible. There's the idea, Jen, when you say that people are just trying to push the price as high as possible. I'm just like, oh, my gosh, like who's going to be left holding those bags? Right. Because it's going to correct. It's going to come crashing down. So, you know, it's all fun and games to get involved with this meme coin and go and have fun. Let's not take it too seriously. But do realize that there is real money. At stake here, this is a big round, one of the bigger ones that we've seen in recent memory. And it suggests that investors are still seeing opportunity in these markets. I'm going to throw this to you, Will, if someone seems to be crawling behind you, which is a fun look. So I'm going to toss this to you for your take. I thought we were just going to let that go. You should have Zach. It's all right. No, my pipe burst my house last night and now I have people crawling all over trying to fix it, which is kind of fun to do in the middle of show. But, you know, that's how it is. DeFi represents the ability to use your crypto without spending your crypto, which I think is really attractive to a lot of people who have committed value to these platforms. And then sort of on the whale side or on the professional trading side, you know, you over collateralize for some of these loans, but you're able to sort of cover the costs of that loan by way of making bets that are likely to pay off across the rest of the ecosystem. There are just epic privacy concerns. There are epic financial sovereignty concerns when you start to move into central bank digital currencies. So this idea that we still have cash is this backbone of society. We can still use it. We can still retain control over our finances is rubbish as soon as you try it. So I am I am terrified of these new central bank digital currencies. I'm terrified that we're moving into more of this programmable, controllable monetary world. I'm not excited about this world. And that is why I'm so excited about decentralization and the world of cryptocurrency. El Salvador is going to be like a really interesting case study when we're looking at Bitcoin adoption because it's like legally enforced as opposed to a voluntary way that it's been kind of pushed beforehand. Like everyone's coming like, hey, go and add open now or go and add something that allows you to take Bitcoin payments. But in El Salvador, you have to do it.

My handle across all social media at that Kevin show. Please be in touch with me. I love to interact on the top stories of the day. We've got a lot to get to this morning. Yesterday, one of the judges in the federal trials that is the former president is going to face in upcoming months set the trial date for March 4th. This is in the special case against President Trump that Jack Smith is bringing the U .S. District Judge for the District Tanya Chutkin. Remember that name? It will live in infamy. She's rejected a proposal by the Trump defense team that the trial began in April of twenty twenty six long after the election. She instead set the date far closer to the one proposed by Smith and the government who wanted it on January 2nd. And if you happen to be a criminal attorney, please dial me eight hundred six five five Mike eight hundred six five five six four five three. I'd love to have some validation on this, but one of the one of the broadcasts I do here in New York for AM 970 the answer focuses on litigative issues every Thursday night. And we just talk legal stuff. I'm not a lawyer. I'm fascinated by the law. I think that lawyers that that proves a faithful service to their clients and to the government are are valuable people in our society. But I think it's interesting to see this chess match being played to the public in a way as though lawyers wouldn't know what was really going on here. So let me kind of break it down for you. You had the indictment and the the perp walk and the cuffing and the fingerprinting and all the stuff that they wanted to do to try to embarrass forty five. They had their moment in the in the sun to do that. And then they come back and they say, oh, we're we're going to go to trial quickly. We're going to put you on trial on the second of January. And Jack Smith said, Judge, you've got to put them on trial on the second of January. And the Trump team said, no, we're going to ask for twenty twenty six. And the judge comes back and says, no, no, no, no, we can't give you that much time to prepare. We're going to make sure that you're ready for trial by March the fourth. Now, of all the dates and all the calendars in all the world, March 4th is the day that she just happened to land on. I'm just I'm just looking at this calendar and I'm just seeing of all the choices and options that I have here. And you know what? I'm going to go with March the fourth for no reason whatsoever. Except that March 5th happens to be Super Tuesday. And there's however many states, twelve, fifteen, sixteen states in it. I forget the number. It's one of the most important days of the election calendar. This judge, Tonya Chutkin and and the prosecutor in the in the in the Georgia case are both embarrassing themselves. Fannie Willis and Tonya Chutkin are both embarrassing themselves because their behavior begets kindergartners on day one of preschool. Like it's they're not even in the in the class yet. And they're already like goofing around. Here's what happens between now and March 4th of next year. The Trump team will do a number of things in all of these cases, but they're going to they're going to be filing mainly, especially in the in the state cases for a couple of things. They're going to want those cases moved out of the Georgia state realm and they're going to want to put them into the federal realm because the federal system will be one that's easier to to manage and to and to kind of go through. But beyond that, there are a boatload of motions that will be being entered into the record between now and then that they are going to do everything from filing a motion to dismiss to filing an extension for discovery. And let me just let me just tell you on this on this alleged interference in the 2020 federal case that Jack Smith is doing out of D .C. It's my understanding that there are more than 12 million documents. That will be entered into the evidence, and this Tonya Chutkin joke, this this judge, this this joke of a judge laughed yesterday when told by the Trump team that for proper discovery to be allowed, there's no human way that they could sit and read 12 million pages between now and March 4th. And she just kind of giggled like, ha ha ha. Well, you've already you already know a bunch of the stuff that's in there. Ha ha ha. Friends. We talked about this yesterday. The left is trying to systematically dismantle America and they're starting to let the evil be seen. Right. That was my theme yesterday on the show. We talked about it for three hours. This is another example of that. There's there's this kind of open knowledge that this judge is dismissing. The normal procedures that what would be accustomed to any other criminal defendant, they're not going to allow President Trump. Why aren't they going to give him the same rights and the same protections that they would give a serial killer or a gang banger or anyone else? They're going to have to. And if the judge continues this kind of embarrassing behavior, chuckling at the people that are involved, chuckling at the requests that are made. She's there's a there's a there's a circuit court that oversees this court. And those judges have authoritative roles that they play over the over the sitting judge. That's that's in the court. That is Tonya Chuck him. And if they don't want to be embarrassed, if they don't want to have their circuit embarrassed, they will advise their underling to comport herself differently. But I just find it amazing that we're supposed to buy all of this. This is this is the great lie. They sit here and they pull this stuff and they and they set these unrealistic dates. And by the way, I'm going on the record. They would not have made a January 2nd start date. They're not going to make a March 4th start date. You had it is law. His he has a right to an informed defense. He has he has a right to have his defense know every piece of evidence that's going to be introduced as it's introduced before it's introduced. If the if the prosecution has had twelve point eight million documents in their possession and the defense is just receiving and being made aware of what they're going to introduce. They have to have time legally to not only understand what every document says, but they have to process it and comprehend the implication of what that document has to do with within the case. And then they have to have the right to prepare proper defense of those facts. This isn't a kangaroo court. We're not in a kangaroo nation. There are still laws. And I know these Obama judicial appointees and the Biden administration and the Justice Department all think it's hilarious. What's going to be hilarious is when they get their teeth slapped back at them by their their their upper judges and maybe eventually the Supreme Court, because they're such lunatics with how they're proceeding at current pace. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Take your calls right now. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Do you think that Trump will be in court on March 4th, the day before Super Tuesday next year?

Ron DeSantis Is Proof of Taking Action Over Words
"Particularly during events like this. I know I do and that's why one landslide wasn't some sleight of hand or anything of the sort. You know all about his background. You can dig in and look.

Good to see you. This is a big day, a very, very big day, a day that should live in infamy because Donald Trump is having to report to a courthouse today. It's a staggering thing. Some of my friends had to have their mug shots taken yesterday. These American heroes who were really trying to make sure that we had a fair election last time. And by the way, we didn't. And of course, last night there was the Republican debate. I want to say that with air quotes. It's kind of like whatever that was last night on Fox News. And then Trump, brilliantly, as usual, because he is just a master at this, did had a conversation with Tucker Carlson at the same time as the debates starring Asa Hutchinson, who? That's correct. Asa Hutchinson. So so, Kevin, let's let's go to it. I didn't have the stomach. I did not have the stomach. I don't have the stomach to watch things like that debate last night. So I saw a bunch of clips. It was really, to my mind, pathetic, actually, to see people like Mike Pence and Nikki Haley and Chris Christie presenting a view of the world that died in 1986.

It would be nice if you did reach out to the conservative base every now and then. I don't see it. So, Chris Christie is on CNN today.
"christie" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"My guest, Governor Chris Christie, former Governor of New Jersey loves Bruce. I don't know if you're a fan of the band. Are you Governor? Absolutely. So would you prefer hearing Springsteen sing this or the band? Always Springsteen. All right. Governor, welcome back. Good to have you. I have asked Nikki Haley, Ron DeSantis and Doug Burgum this question. I'm going to ask all the candidates. Senator Tuberville is upset that the Pentagon and Joe Biden have violated the Hyde Amendment. And so Senator Tuberville has put a hold on 300 military promotions. Now that affects, according to Admiral Stavridis, more than 10 ,000 people in the entire ladder of promotions, their families, etc. What do you make of Senator Tuberville's tactic? I don't think it's the right one. I share his concern about the Biden administration's disregard of the Hyde Amendment, but I don't believe the best way to do it is to impact our military readiness. Some will say it's Joe Biden's fault, and he shares the fault for that. But quite frankly, Senator Tuberville is the guy who is making these calls and holding up these promotions, and I just don't believe it's the right tactic. Now that puts you in the cab with Nikki Haley, but Governor DeSantis and Governor Burgum both say yes, use any tactic you can. What would you tell to them? And what would you say to the senator if you called him up? Well, what I'd say to the senator is let's let's work together to try to change this policy. It's obvious that his current approach to it, which has been going on for weeks in any way at all. So let's look for a more effective way to do it. And what I would say to him is that I empathize with what he's trying to accomplish, and I support it, but I don't believe doing it by impacting our military at all is the right way to go about
"christie" Discussed on The Final Lap
"Mishandling, gets loose again, comes to pit road, speeds on pit road. Now he's two laps down. And he's trapped. It looks like the day's over for William Byron. If I were these guys, I would have probably just phoned it in the rest of the way. Because it did not look like you'd be getting two laps back at Kansas. But guess what? They stuck with it. They got their free passes. They got everything they needed. And here they are. They come back up to the field. They get the car working just right at the end. And he finishes third, man. That's pretty crazy. For sure. For sure, now let's talk about the top two. One of the most epic battles in the history of the sport. I mean, I thought it was just riveting watching Denny Hamlin battle Kyle Larson in the closing laps. I mean, it was almost like old school Darlington. No, I was. It was really fun to watch Larson was utilizing the high side Hamlin was utilizing the low side. And it seemed like every time Hamlin because he had the better car at this point, it was obvious. He was running them down each time, but every time you get there, Larson would take the air off the front of his car or something like that or then he would lose it down the bottom, couldn't quite pull off the pass and lose so much momentum, but man, they kept at it, they kept at it, it was like a 20 lap sustained rundown of Hamlin catching Larsen and then the full finalized like 5 laps was just a nonstop Hamlin trying any way to get around Kyle Larson and my goodness. We got a show. Yep. And the way he found around him, you know, just wreck him, because that's what you do. Just put him in the wall because that's what Denny Hamlin does. That's what he does. His calling card is the wreck people. If you can't win legit, if you can't, you know, flat out win with speed, just put them in the wall. Well, how many races all, but if it happens to him, I'm gonna go crying like a little baby off in the corner. Now I will say if the shoe was on the other foot, I think he would have been pretty upset about for sure. Let's scenario here. Let's say that it was Denny Hamlin leading and Ross Chastain was in second and it was the same battle and Chastain put Denny in the wall. You think it would have been just no big deal? Oh no, definitely not. I mean, there would have definitely been hell to pay for Ross Chastain. But the question I have for you is how many times have we seen Hamlin punt somebody for a win? Too many. You see it too many times? You're saying he doesn't? I don't see him punting people for wins very often. I think there was the issue with Chase Elliott Martinsville once. I don't know. I haven't seen him really a lot of people for wins. Have you? Well, that doesn't matter. That doesn't because he did this time. And again, like I said, if the roles were reversed or Chastain was involved, why is it that Kyle Larson just took it? Why didn't he go up pit road and go visit him? Well, so I understand and I get a lot of people don't like Denny Hamlin and I get it. And it's easy to remember in the crowd. It's easy to say this is Denny Hamlin's thing. He was battling Kyle Larson hard in those

"Meeting with the players and what that's going to look like. And our first couple of days of training camps and what that's going to look like. I am going back Lin Dunn has sent me things that I am going to put into play. Because she's just a brilliant basketball mind, and she sees things, she sees things in people. And she is a tireless workhorse, man. I mean, this woman is up all hours the night. And she's texting me and I'm like, do you ever sleep, lady? She's like three times. Right. Right. Like, go rest. Go to your house in Florida and go, you know, take a breather, but I love her passion. And I love her love for the fever. And that to me, she wants to see this thing back and it's just an honor that Lin Dunn, who is coming back to try to make sure to get this thing moving in the right direction. I thought that I was the right person for the job. I mean, what a huge honor that is for someone to think that about you and, you know, I'm happy that she is she's not she's taken off that interim tag and now she's full of go with us for the next few years and thankful for that because we've worked really well together and it's just an honor to be with her and golly, she knows everybody in the game and she knows, you know, the people that help get this game started and I've been able to meet a lot of those ladies and at the final four I'm gonna get to meet a lot of them at with her. I'm looking forward to that because those people, you know, we just celebrated international women's day and golly, some of those women that she knew that helped us get to where we are today. It's incredible. You talk about the decisions and the steps that have needed to take to just get the fever stabilized. And not even just that, I would say it's at a point now where it's like, we were talking about it already, maybe a couple weeks ago, I was like, man, the way the league looks right now, it's like, man, fever, fever, really the trend is upward, you know? And it took a while to kind of get it even just stabilized. But I clearly, you talk about that class. I know RA wants to ask about some of those second year rookies, but I mean, clearly, a part of this, and part of that excitement is having the first pick, first round pick, you know, in Indiana fever history. I know we can't get into specifics. You look at any mock, you can pretty much have a decent idea of who you're considering. But how do you, and I love it seems like you and Linden are really close. I know that's not always the case in the league where the GM and the head coach, like some just make decisions without consulting. With each other and making the best decision for the franchise as a whole, but how do you approach the draft? Just as a franchise and this pick because clearly this is a pivotal moment in time for the franchise. But how does that look in terms of just scouting and communicating and trying to figure out how do you utilize this pick the right way? Yeah. You know, there's some great there is some generational players in this draft and we're going to be lucky to have one of those, especially in this, you know, I kept telling Lin. Like, I don't want to keep calling this a rebuild. I don't want to use the word rebuild. That's what we were using when I was there before. We're just we're improving and getting better. And who we choose in this draft, you know, we have, we have one in 7 and 13, and those can all be really big picks for us. And the future for the fever. There's some exciting players, Lynn has done an excellent job of just organizing this draft. You know, asking me about what I want, what kind of players I want, what I think, what I see moving forward. And you said it. I mean, some people don't have that experience, you know, and I'm lucky to have that. She's given me, I mean, we talk through everything. And it's been great because we can have hard conversations and we don't have to agree. And I've always been that person. We don't have to agree. If we respect each other, we can move forward and make the best decision for the organization and same with my assistant coaches. I don't want you to agree with everything. We're not getting better for all agreeing on the same thing. So don't be a yes, man. Exactly. Exactly. So the people that I'm putting around me, those guys aren't those people, which is exciting. But, you know, Lin has, we speak daily. Each other, but we have our staff talks, and she's always asking us questions. She always sends an email the night before and she's like, okay, we're going to do this today. These players list those players. List these players that what do you think we, you know, it's every day we are getting hit with something else and we've got about 5 or 6 people in house and then she also has several people outside of the feeble organization that are giving, you know, she's asking their thoughts, which is always awesome to hear, you know, people who have an outside view of things, but what they're saying. So that's who she is. She's connected and she has, and she trusts those people. And some of the things that she's come back with from those guys, it's just people who've been around the game and have a knowledge of the game and see things that really help us in our decision making, but we're lucky with some early picks that are going to, you know, that are going to change the trajectory of the fever. I really believe that. Well, yeah, 'cause I was gonna be mean to Rachel and be like, it's not just the first pick. You got some other ones too. But you know, gotta be nice to my friend. Right. But you look at this roster and you have so much youth on this roster. And I just want to get your insight on last year's fever, rookie class and their potential. I mean, obviously in the list of Smith seems to be a superstar in the making. Destiny Henderson, queen egbo. I'm a huge angler fan. I just think she's one of those players that doesn't get enough attention because she's doing the intangibles. She's that type of player that there's a loose ball. And one of the opposing teams is diving for it. You know, she doesn't care. She's putting her body on the line for the team. Just tell me about your thoughts on the potential of these young players. Yeah, I think that's exactly potential is through the roof. I think the one thing that was a huge factor in the growth of these guys was there wasn't enough veteran leadership. Veterans who've had experience. Veterans who've been through different organizations and have different ideas of things. So these guys came in and were given the keys, you know? And that wasn't a bad thing. I mean, they got great experience, right? But they also have absolutely no idea what it means to be a pro, you know? And that was kind of what it was when we were there before. You know, we drafted Kelsey Mitchell, Tierra Macao and we had a young group and tamika catchings had left and the breon January had left. And so there was a gap of a veteran leader. And so Kelsey was trying to figure it out on her own. Here in Macau and figuring out Victoria Vivian's figuring it out on her own. So even to this day, even though they're still not considered young players anymore, they've still never had. They've just kind of had to learn on the fly on what it means. And so for me, with this free agency class, I just thought, we have got to get people in there that are going to help those young people, you know, create habits. You know, they've probably created some really bad habits that are we're going to have to break. You know, as young players in this league, we've got to teach them what it means to be a pro. You've got to have a routine as a pro if you don't have a game day routine. Like, I bet if I asked some of them, they just didn't know. And so I've challenged Erica Wheeler and Christy Wallace, even Victoria vivens, Emma cannon. Those guys and Kelsey Mitchell, like, I know Kelsey Mitchell has grown, I've talked to her a good bit, and she has matured.

"Ball state. I was starting to make that transition to media and was covering you and pokey with the fever at that time. So I always feel like Indiana is a place I've been really close to and had a really watchful eye over so everything you're talking about, even just those changes with Erika Wheeler and the free agency and just, you know, what we'll get to the arena here in a minute. But there's no surprise that you were clearly a highly regarded name in terms of your experience, being back in Indiana, talking through what that means to be back. What's the relationship like with Lin Dunn? You know, in like your guys dynamic. How does that look? Yeah. I've always respected lyn Dunne. I would always go listen to her and, you know, at the final four at the round tables, and she was always absolutely the most entertaining of all the round tables. I mean, it was incredibly, but as much as you were laughing and listening to her and tell her stories, you were also always learning things. Like, I can go back to notebooks where I took notes of things that Lin Dunn had talked about. And but it has been to get to know her and to now call, you know, she is my boss and she is my mentor and she has been teaching me since day one. You guys, and I'm not kidding. The minute that we started this process, it went a lot longer than it expected. And I'd actually kind of, I pulled my name out of the hat there for a minute just for it was just going, it was just taking too long, and I was like, okay, if this is the case, then this probably isn't what I need to do. And you start thinking, you know, all these things. And so, but she said, Christy, I'm about to come on down to go for Mississippi and be knocking on your door. You know, you know how she talks and as a country accent and come into my house and go change my mind and she did. I mean, she didn't have to get on that plane and come down here, but she, from that day, I get emails. I get text messages. I get quotes, I get thoughts, you know, I think I get everything that she's ever spoken. She sends me daily. And I read it, and I put it in a I have it where it's all, you know, I'm kind of that crazy, I'm kind of OCD when it comes to how I organize things, but I have everything in place.

"TV backslash wind cider. Welcome back to the wind siders show we are very honored to welcome in this episode the Indiana fever head coach Christie sides, very glad to have you, head coach sides has a nice ring to it. So I got how you doing? How you enjoying this new title? Hey, man, first, thank you so much for having me on. It's still not normal for me to hear head coach. It is, it's awesome, and it's been a great experience so far. November, through now, has been, it's been a grind and we've been working, but it's been fun. I've got great people around me. You know, I never thought I would be sitting in this seat. I'm not gonna lie. I mean, I've never, I've had the opportunity, people have reached out and it was so easy for me to say, hey, I really appreciate you calling and your interest, but I'm just really happy in the seat that I'm in and that assistant coach and role. And Lin Dunn reached out and for whatever reason I was sitting on my parents farm and talking to her and I could not when it was time for me to say those words, they would not come. And I was just like, okay, let me just so, you know, took a deep breath and decided, okay, let's just see how this goes. If it works out great, it's the timing would be awesome. And everything was smooth. And that's how I knew this was the right time for this opportunity for me. Well, let's start from the beginning of your coaching career. I believe the early 2000s, I saw you got into coaching at the high school level, how did that come to be? So I was, I was really, I wasn't going to go play pro, I had tried to go play the Portland fire, had brought me out to their training camp, and you could have an injured reserve player at the time. And so I never got on the roster, but was kind of iffy on what I wanted to do. And so I talked to coach Barr. I played for legendary coach Baltimore, Louisiana tech. And I had had an opportunity to go coach a division three out of division three school with a good friend of mine in Oklahoma, and I was just about to do it. And this man, he knows everything and finds out everything he always has. He always will. I don't know how he does it, but he called me up and he said, I don't want you to take that job. Just hold tight. He said, you don't need to leave and go to Oklahoma. And at the time, I didn't have a job at graduated college. I was like, coach, what am I going to do? He was like, just hold tight. This was a Sunday. Monday morning, I wake up and my phone rings, and I have a job offer at ruston high school, big Firebase school right there, and we're Louisiana tech is. To teach and to be the head freshman coach and JB coach and then assist with the varsity team and I mean, that's just who that man is. I mean, he's incredible. I mean, he's always, you know, he made me a better player, you know, I coach my philosophies were very similar to his in some ways, just his discipline and his hard nose, but he got me that job and he brought me in his office and he said, as soon as I have a position, it's yours here with me at Louisiana tech. But I need you to sit here and rustin and be close. And that's what I did for two years. And then the opportunity presented itself. He offered me the job with him at Louisiana tech and I actually didn't get to sit on the bench with him because after he had hired me, everything was in place, a few months later, he decided to retire, and that's when Kurt Bucky took over. Which was almost perfect for me because instead of being the director of basketball operations, I was able to have a dual role in the operations and be able to get on the floor and coach as well. So not sure if he had that in his plan, but I really appreciate him for helping me out, you know, for putting me in that position and kind of kick start in this my career. Well, and you've been at so many different stops. We talked about your stop at the high school level. Talk about Louisiana tech, LSU, even out there at Sparta in Moscow. Yeah. You've also coached northwestern Louisiana Monroe. And then your WNBA stops. Chicago, Indiana, Atlanta. Tell us about just kind of that journey because you've kind of gone back and forth throughout the course of your career. I have, you know, started out at Louisiana tech, my college career worked with Kurt Bucky, him and Katie hall and Chris long. We were on staff together, had a great run, got beat by Ella Shu. Out in Palo Alto, California, but we had a great run. I learned a lot in that time frame. And then poke Chapman reached out. I was playing golf with the staff and we had actually been battling a recruit. Keanu Cheney, this is, you know, this is a long time ago, but we were battling key on a chain. The LSU in Louisiana tech and there should have been no reason that we were in that ball game. LSU had gone to that final four and coach gunner when she stepped down, she told pokey, she goes, I don't know who you're planning on hiring, but you need to try to get Christie's sides 'cause we don't want to be bad on Louisiana tech for these recruits. And so thank you, coach gunner, who is one of my all time favorite human beings in the whole world. But she, you know, so poke reached out, offered me the job. Went back home because I'm from right outside of Baton Rouge. So I was able to coach and go to three final fours. With them and coach Simon Augustus and some great players there. I went in there for you. Great players all around, though, had several of them there, Sylvia files, my gosh, like we were, we had a great team. And then once I got out of coach and I kind of, you know, we'd go into the final four every year and I was trying to figure out my path and left Ella shoe and was went to work with one of the track coaches from LSU who had resigned about the same time I did.
