Who Will This 'New and Improved' IRS Target?

"In the meantime, back to this IRS thing. I mean, I'm just kind of offended. I sound like I'm like, you know, one of the woke ones right now, 'cause I'm offended, everything. But I'm offended when they think that the answer is to somehow just go after every Tom dick and Harry and Jane and Susan and Sally. And this is who will be affected. It will be your middle class. As much as they're going to try and tell you, oh, it's the 1%, no, no, no. Just in terms of, if you have that many IRS agents, who are they going to go after, and they can't, as I keep saying, they can't go after. The people that they should go after were just the billionaires, they get away with the great deal on the tax front because we've got lawmakers that are so concerned about making sure they have enough money for their next campaign. I told you yesterday about all the money. I mean, Kirsten sinema is one example. She's got donations individual donations from the private equity industry totaling over 500,000 for her last campaign. I mean, that is a lot of money, right? And I'm just looking at the numbers 54,900 from executives over at KKR, 35,000 at Carlisle, 27,300 over at Apollo. The private equity industry is a very big lobbying organization. In fact, they probably spend more money than any other industry right now. They're on K street and one of the reasons they're doing this is to give themselves the beneficial treatment when it comes to taxes. Do you know the Chuck Schumer? Collected 1.28 million from the private equity industry, including Blackstone and KKR, so you really think that he's that interested in raising taxes on this particular group of people. Go back and listen to Monday's podcast. If you want to explain or they're on why this is income and why it should be treated as income and why this is just highway robbery, frankly, of the American people and of our government, but these people in Washington I'll tell you the whole system is so darn corrupt. When you see what just went down. And when you see that they're going to effectively inflate, again, the U.S. economy artificially by spending all this money while simultaneously adding another 80 billion to go after everyday folks from the IRS all all while saying we're going to give a pass to those private equity investors. I mean, give me a break. It's not investment. It's income and they need to be taxed as such. Anyway, it's really pretty disgusting. But the whole thing is just disgusting. I mean, the idea that they want to pass this off, the name itself as somehow an inflation reduction act. Guys, you're just spending more money. All right, before I get to that, I do have one more thing I want to mention to you. You know, it's summer and we're all looking for movies and I don't know about you, but it's kind of hard sometimes. Kind of hard to find a good movie that you can enjoy watching that is representative of your values. I think that our values have gotten kind of lost and pop culture these days. And it's one of the reasons why I think it's important for all of us to think about what we're watching and who we're supporting when we watch it, right? Are you really into Disney right now with all their bogus? Or do you want to try and seek out some alternative sources of entertainment? This is where this movie in particular comes in. When I was a kid, I used to watch Cameron on that, what was that show? Oh, you know what? I got to look it up right now as I'm talking to you. This is how you know I'm recording in real time. He had that sitcom, when I was a kid, what was it? So anyone who can answer that in the questions below, extra super duper points, go to you. I'm going to come back to that in a second because it's going to drive me crazy. I remember that sitcom really, really well. Anyway, he's got a new movie out a new movie that he's backing. He's a very big Christian. He's an growing pains. Growing pains. That was the sitcom. I remember that now. Anyway, he's got a new movie that is just out. It's pretty neat. It's got a good message, and I think it's worth taking a look at as you're looking for things to watch and be entertained by. So this is called life Mark. And in this movie life Mark, it tells the story of David who has this very comfortable world that gets totally turned upside down when his birth mother, unexpectedly reaches out to him, and she's looking to meet him. He's 18 years old at that point. She only had the chance to hold him once, and she went looking for him and he finds this out. So it's really, it's an interesting storyline and probably one that happens a lot. He gets encouragement from his adopted parents, and so he embarks on this life altering journey, which really is a process of discovery and it leads to a pretty staggering truth from his past, inspired by a true story life mark is a powerful reminder that one decision, one choice can impact so much more than one life. It's a pro family pro love pro forgiveness pro reconciliation and pro new beginnings kind of movie.

Charlie Unpacks the Most Dangerous Provisions of the New Democrat Bill

"I want to start this program by going into what happened over this last weekend. According to NPR dot org, the propagandist publication funded by our taxpayer dollars, Democrats passed a major climate health and tax bill. Here is what is in it. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer gives the thumbs up as he leaves the Senate chamber after passage of the inflation reduction act. Senate Democrats after weeks of negotiations to revive the core of their election year agenda passed a spending bill, which would attempt to tackle climate change. The high cost of prescription drugs and lower the deficit by roughly $300 billion. So let's go through actually what's in the Bill. This NPR does a pretty poor job of detailing it, but we'll dance around with this, but let's start with this idea of climate change. I have to say, whoever came up with the branding around climate change is brilliant. It's an unbelievably brilliant strategy. You can call it a Trojan horse. You could call it a wolf in sheep's clothing. What's so brilliant about climate change is that you don't have to define it. Is that you have a unspecified fear that you could spend an unlimited amount of money on. Like AOC a $100 trillion. Why stop there? Why not a 130 trillion? You see, climate change is so brilliantly duplicitous. And it's a scheme to make people afraid, but they'll never actually get to the end point. That's what's so brilliant about it. So no matter how much you spend, there might be somebody with a fossil fuel somewhere in Midland, Texas, we need to spend another $100 billion to go find them. You see, if they completely change the economy into a green economy, destroying our energy supremacy, by the way, which is one of the most civilizational suicidal things that we could possibly do, they'll just then create a surveillance state to find out if someone still is using fossil fuels or natural gas, even

I mean, they could have gotten whatever they wanted if they would have just held firm and stood up to the antics of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, will they? Well, president Trump was at cpac over the weekend in Dallas. And he made a promise what happened to Manchin and sinema, what happened, we're trying to figure out what the hell happened, where did this new philosophy come from? All of a sudden, 48 hours. I think if this deal passes, they will both lose their next election. I do believe that West Virginia and Arizona will not stand for what they did to them. So maybe this speech can stop them because when Manchin hears me say he's going to lose West Virginia and I'll go down and campaign against them as hard as anybody can. Huge roar from the crowd at cpac with Trump promising to campaign as hard as he can against Joe Manchin.

Washington Examiner: Inflation Reduction Act Doubles the Size of IRS

"Great analysis over at the Washington examiner by Jake Lee Leahy. This plan, which will step up enforcement mechanisms within the IRS. It's going to end up hurting the middle class. He says the additional funding for the IRS adds up to $80 billion over the next decade, it'll double the size of Uncle Sam's debt collector and put 87,000 new IRS agents into action. The result will be increased audits on small businesses and middle class taxpayers across the country. I mean, there's no way it's just going to be the top earners. You can't invest in that kind of manpower and not audit. They're going to be able to perform 1.2 million additional audits. That's not just going to be billionaires. Now, honest to goodness, is this something that anybody in America was yearning for. I got to meet the one person in the country. Who sat around and said, gosh, I hope Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin get their wish and we can have more IRS agents and double the size. Double the size. Ted Cruz pointed it out.

They could pick up 40. Depends on how badly Joe Biden screws up and what happens with inflation. And right now, the misery index, I think it's baked in. The house is one. Democrats are giving up the retiring in droves. They're running away. And they should. Because redistricting plus the misery index means a Republican wave in the house.

"Now a mother in New Jersey has some major beef with Chuck E. Cheese. The very popular kids mascot you never think that kids mascot. Would be guilty of racial discrimination for ignoring a high 5 attempt, but that's the charge. The woman goes by the name um sapphire on Twitter, don't ask me. She put up a video that says she shot it on July 30 that the Chuck E. Cheese location in Wayne, New Jersey. And it shows her daughter very excited, jumping up and down before putting her hand down. I seen the video, you can see the mouse high 5, some white kids on the stage before he basically stands in front of the black kid and does nothing but ignore the black girl. It's a terrible video to watch. It breaks your heart. You just ignoring the kid. What's not clear is whether or not the person inside the costume could actually see the little girl, but for my money he can't. But that doesn't matter to the woman who's gone after this rat. She wrote, now you gotta, I mean, people on Twitter write things weird, but my two YO two year old was racially discriminated against. As you can see, he gives all the white kids high 5. Now white is spelled YT. And purposely ignored my black baby. When confronted, he ignored me as well. The manager made excuses for him. By the way, like I said, she spells white YT. Is that a new thing? She was not even close to a 130 characters. She had plenty more room to do the other three letters, is that a new thing? Black in this paragraph, black gets a capital B and anywhere in the media black gets a capital B not white. We still got the small W don't, listen, no, black gets a big B sorry, white people, you're just a little common substandard W you don't get the big W so black gets a capital B and right now, not only do we not get the big W now we'll refer to as YT, two lower case letters.

Well, on Thursday, Christopher wray, the FBI director appears in Congress before they oversight committee and the Republicans there are planning to really grill him on a few very sinister and concerning issues that have come to the fore in the last week. And you probably know already about chuck gresley has had several FBI whistleblowers come to him and give him information that basically the FBI just sat on buried the Hunter Biden information that came out in 2020 in August 2020 when graz Lee and Ron Johnson were both investigating the Hunter Biden and burisma corruption connections. And then again in October 2020, which was, of course, the month that we at the New York Post broke the first story from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop and October was also the time the month that tiny bubble linsky, the navy veteran and former business partner of Hunter Biden came forward publicly to say that Joe Biden was involved in his family's influence peddling scheme that Joe Biden was the big guy who was slated to get 10% of one of the Chinese deals and that Tony bubba linsky himself had met twice with Joe Biden to discuss these deals.

Now, Mark Kelly has what $35 million cash on hand? At least. An extraordinary amount of hard money. That doesn't count super PACS or C four money. This is just in hard money.

He's very good at lying and deceiving people where he says, I'm going to take on my own party, play cut 12. Arizona families are facing tough choices. Like how to fill the gas tank and the grocery cart. And things people count on can be hard to find. We can't afford to wait this out, so I'm pushing for solutions today, even if it means taking on my own party. Like bringing down gas prices by allowing more domestic oil production. Temporarily ending the gas tax and cutting red tape to restock shells faster. I'm Mark Kelly and I prove this message because I'll do whatever it takes to lower costs now. Blake? He's just a liar. Like, you know, nicely produced ad Merc, but he means none of it. Yes. He'll do whatever it takes to lower costs for Arizona families. Dude, you've been in office for almost two years. And all he's done is vote almost in lockstep literally, like 97 98% in lockstep with the Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, pro inflation, open borders agenda. He's voted for all the trillions of every piece of spending. Every piece of spending. He was chomping at the bit to vote for build back better. 3 trillion in spending when we already had inflation.

Pat Toomey: Joe Manchin Was Taken to the Cleaners

"Joe Manchin who, as you know, last week, finally yielded to the pressure of the Democrats, he caved to Chuck Schumer, and has agreed on another massive spending bill. He made the rounds yesterday on all the Sunday talk shows. Trying to explain his position now, it's a tough one to explain. And some of them, some of his colleagues aren't buying it, for example, senator pat toomey. He's Republican for Pennsylvania, as you know. He criticized this new climate healthcare tax package that senator Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer unveiled last week after Joe Manchin decided, well, maybe I do like spending money after all. In an interview with face the nation, to me suggested that mansion was taken to the cleaners. In this inflation reduction act, now you remember that the very reason that Joe Manchin did not support the build back better program last year was because he said that he was afraid that additional federal spending would fuel inflation, which it will. We know that we've seen it. That's why we are where we are today because of the trillions of dollars in the name of COVID that Joe Biden and our federal government has spent. So you would think that Joe Manchin had learned from

The Schumer-Manchin Tax Increase on Everyone

"Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal this money has an editorial. The Schumer mansion tax increase on everyone. Majority leader Chuck Schumer wants a Senate vote on his partisan tax deal with Joe Manchin as early as this week. And no wonder he wants to rush it through. The more Americans learn about it and what's in this tax and spend behemoth, the more they will dislike it. Start with the author's central claim that the bill reduced the deficit and thus inflation. The pen Wharton budget model, which senator Manchin has been known to watch, examine the details of the shimmer and Manchin Bill and found it doesn't contain any net deficit reduction until 2027. Quote the impact on inflation is statistically indistinguishable from zero through 2031 says the Penn Wharton modelers. We don't agree with those who think deficit reduction leads in a straight line to lower inflation, but that's what the Democrats claim for their bill. If the first deficit reduction doesn't come for 5 years, where's the help on inflation today? The 200 and 327 billion in new taxes could slow inflation at the economy falls into recession. And that may be the quiet expectation the journal continues. The tax increases on business will discourage investment while the Federal Reserve is also raising business costs with higher interest rates. But tax policy should be working in the opposite direction to encourage investment when the fed is tightening in the economy as close to recession. Evidence is emerging that the new shimmer mansion 15% minimum tax on corporate book income is especially harmful to U.S. manufacturing firms. And analysis by Congress's joint committee on taxation, hardly a nest of supply ciders, found that 49.7% of the tax would hit U.S. manufacturers.

Now this is something that is not getting, I think, the attention that it deserves. Joe Manchin is not a conservative. Now, Joe Manchin is someone that I think received way too much praise, and I put praise on him as well, but also said throughout many different corners and turns that the mansion agenda was always going to come to some point of negotiation and potentially sell out the entire country. And so there's this mass legislative debate happening right now in Washington, D.C.. And Joe Manchin has shocked the world saying that he has come to some sort of middle ground or negotiation with Chuck Schumer. Now the details of the bill are still pending, and Mitch McConnell has said that he has been betrayed and lied to. And my question to Mitch McConnell is, who do you think you're dealing with exactly? What do you think the Democrat party actually is? Who do you think the Democrat party really represents? You think they represent their voters? Or do you think the Democrat party represents their crony special interests? And the activists in the base of the Democrat party.

"A West Virginia senator coal country is taxing his own constituents after he has already said you don't do a tax increase in the middle of a recession. Well, that's exactly what Joe Manchin has done. But maybe what he admitted to hoppy kercheval helps explain why. When we were working and negotiating, we started our staff started back way back in April. And first of all, nobody in the right mind after I have been ostracized for how long and victimized, if you will, because I killed the DDB because the BBB was just the I think about the offer our economy is a bad deal for our country and to change the trajectory. We are as people. So I was totally opposed to that in America kept saying, build back better, build back better, smaller. There's no such thing as a build back better. This is truly going to be around inflation reduction. So what we did, we started talking start negotiating in this and that everything else. And the bill that we had there were some things in that bill that we were negotiating up until when the 9.1% came out, there were some things in the bill that I was concerned about that could be looked to be on to be inflationary inflammatory. So I told you more on Thursday as a chuck. I want to wait. I'm not satisfied with the way some of the things we have, then we better wait and see what this inflation figures are for the month of July because everyone was saying, it's going to go down, go down, go down. I've been hearing that since it was 6% and one to 8% and went to 9.1, 9.1. So I told my staff after the instruct got mad, and he said, well, you're walking. You're not going to do this and that, not your chuck. I'm not walking away from anything. I'm just being very cautious. The people must Virginia can't at Ford, higher prices. They can't afford higher gasoline prices. So what changed? For energy prices. So I said, I told my staff to start scrubbing it.

No, you haven't done anything. But in this case, we have grassley, who is an influential figure on the, in the Senate judiciary. And so it's the committee that has oversight over the FBI. And writing on judiciary committee letter had grassley makes two points. And both the points have been derived from FBI whistleblowers. These are FBI agents who have come forward and have apparently revealed two interesting things. The first one is that the FBI has been very involved in suppressing, suppressing investigations connected with Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family. So this is very telling that the FBI has been deliberately ignoring evidence and they have been using the fig leaf. In fact, they've been using the pretense that they know to be untrue. That this is Russia and disinformation.

"With us is senator from the great state of Florida, senator Rick Scott. Where you are today. That's right. And you have thousands and thousands of thousands and thousands of young people and senator, I don't think you get the credit you deserve of laying the conservative foundation in Florida. You are a great governor before now that you are a senator. And so in trying to be a good guy. No, you're wonderful. It's hard up there. Yeah, I know. How is it different, by the way, running a state versus being part of a clown car? Well, you know, I built companies. And so I gave myself the title of CEO. Hired me. And so you get the CEO, you get to run things and governor you get to run things up there. You don't get to run anything. And it's completely dysfunctional. I mean, you know, my 8 years as governor, I never talked about party. I never talked about being a Republican. I talked about solving problems, okay? Up in D.C., it's all partisan. It's guys like Chuck Schumer wouldn't even talk to me. I mean, the only thing every time it brings up my name is when he attacks me on the student floor. So what we've got to do is we're going to go be problem solvers, right? As a business guy, you don't have a choice of saying, I don't like your politics. You say, so how do we solve the problem for customer? And that's why I try to do as governor. What do you think is the root of a lot of that dysfunction? I mean, I think one, it makes good TV. And two is just who we've elected. I think here's what I think about. I think you've got to have the present, the governor and the mayors have the biggest pulpits, right? And so you've got to have governors, presence of mayors that say, I'm going to focus on issues. Not be divisive. And if you look at Biden, he's divisive. He said, remember, he said he was going to be this unit or whatever he called himself. He's not at all. He attacks people. He attacks me. I mean, I just put out a plan to say, let's figure out how we rescue this country. And he attacks me. I mean, why would you attack you? I'm just curious, what did he say? I mean, he just said there's Rick Scott once to raise everybody's taxes. No, you know what I said? I said, if you're able bodied, right? You ought to go to work. Don't be dependent on government. Don't, I mean, you shouldn't be in public housing. I lived in public housing growing up. You shouldn't be on food stamps, okay? Unless you're working. So if you look, if you have a job and you don't get paid enough, I get it. But if you want to sit at home, that's wrong. We're on this together.

Chuck i guess that was early before it was televised. Yeah and we had a lot of fun with supercross honestly it was It was still a fairly new thing. Been around for about eight years but not a long time and it was always a secondary fun thing to get in front of the fans to bring the sport of motocross to them. But it wasn't really the primary number. One was the outdoor five hundred premier championship. But we we had a lot of good time. I think i won most of my qualifiers. Yep and it could have been a little bit. Closer i can. I still lose sleep over. losing new orleans. Okay to mike bell by half a by the they put the the brilliant of race promotion. They put in a waterhole. They did that for a while. And it actually worked out okay for me. Because i'm from the north west. I just grabbed another gear and flew through. It got into the lead but the water got into my car raider. So when i was leading the second part of the race the slide was sticking so i had to back out of the throttle early and hopefully it will drop down to use a clutch and that cost me. Some time. bell caught me. Okay and the last turn up to the big skijump had a better drive and beat me by have have had other than that. You would have been winner. Yeah well i i want atlanta. Yeah and that was cool so you feel like it was at a struggle for you a bit to adapt to it. Did you feel like you were pretty good. I i did it on husky right. So yeah i i was doing husky. And that was the thing to do You had to do those races to get the attention. I'd drive all the way from portland down to atlanta. Yeah that was the first race of the season.

"I felt for a long time. 'cause you're someone who has a lot of insider knowledge and some very specific things to that you have a ton of potential to share more things with a world in all capacities too. I appreciate that man. Yeah i mean you guys see me struggle like last year a lot with yeah just with like Like health difficulties and seen. Yeah see me Like really low points. That kind of really sparked for me like man. How do i be how to create a more a positive environment for myself. How do i create a more intentional environment for myself. And how do i start doing the things that i really wanna be doing versus. Maybe just kind of like drifting through and not to say drifting every day. But like i'm the kind of person that will go super hard whatever's in front of me right it's like and that's like my core operating system right is like when i was a little kid. I was in super competitive sports like all through school. And then i saw school is like a competition so i'd like to be really competitive at school and college and then like fucking what's more competitive than like our job on wall street and work in like fucking twelve or fourteen hours a day where literally people competing against each other for money an information and things like that i like the highest level And then to like burn out right like burn out at that and then even when i can remove myself from that was like cool. I wanna use like my background for something. That's more so fulfilling for me. And i started traveling and working outside of the us and using my background. But then i found myself wanting to go to increasingly more. Dangerous countries considered parole yet. Did right but it's like i'll just go heart like that hard and whatever. I'm trying to be good at working hard enough cool. Let's go travel through europe like only hitchhiking and finding our places a camp and stuff like that. Cool that it's not that hard coolest go to turkey and lebanon. Let's go to the middle east and like see if that's harder and then fucking from there. It's like cool. Let's go to africa. And you know it's really great because you can have like i was able to have a big impact in what i was doing there and i really enjoyed the work but i kept pushing myself into these increasingly more dangerous situations to where i was in south sudan. Not taking care of myself. Weighed like one hundred and forty pounds. Like i'm sure not eating or doing anything good for myself and then you just keep pushing you know. I'm having like learn how to learn about landmines and having weekly security briefings from like militia groups and like she's in the countryside of south sudan where there was like a civil war seven days ago. I was in the country seven days after the end of the civil war. You know working to like we're all working for it. I really believe in but it's just innately. My operating system just keeps pushing harder and harder so for me just needing to dial that back. That's funny did people meet. You probably think your chil- your fucking savvy. Chuck's casual do is like no chuck's out of his fucking mind. Total immunity to the cane. Palacio de was hard going here. I'm winning the malaria lottery. Landmines fucking crazy and then it's like i'm fucking. I'm like upset with myself because where. I got malaria. It's like i had the option to stay in like a nice hotel. Where like there wouldn't be a million mosquitos. What i'm like fucking wasn't enough for you know we're going to stay where all the local people stay in like just fucking million mosquitoes that i'm you know. I'm not not a mosquito resistant. I have not skied of fucking on malaria and had all kinds of you probably like seven malaysia. Like seven you gave you the super team biting right says like we all have some core operating system and it's like for me as recognising. You know that that that was part of it and cool. So how do i like. Dial that back in and be like a healthier me which you're talking about some of the changes. You've seen me make taking that innate thing that you have and focusing on things that are positive and how do you. How do you have help you and not kill you. Yeah right because again you can even then put into work and it's like right. We're we're looking at like you guys talk about like cafe opportunities and stuff like that and things that come up and like again if it's cool. Let's just do it. let's just go. let's do it and let's just push but it's like that's not healthy. Every book is start with eggs everyday. Yeah it is. It's like building in those hab bagel and cream. It used to be so cream cheese for breakfast at three. Yeah no breakfast nolan. it's no water. No water just coffee. And now i have like built a healthier eating style absolutely but the for me i just noticed i have to like i have to find ways for those habits to be built into my day else like everybody i think right. It's like you know a lot of people. I did like like health. Wellness challenge at the beginning of this beginning of this year. And yeah right. It's like most people last like seven to ten days or you can do things that are out of your normal normal routine. And that's what i found with myself but the things that really stuck where things that kind of like i do anyway like like i take a shower everyday so like one of the challenges was like a cold shower like increasing variety puts like cool. I can do that one. Because i show fifty degrees but like i take a shower every day. So it's easy for me to do that. The other ones. it's not a new routine. It's a modification of an existing pattern out. You're not like creating something new but it's like if you really want to be intentional about what you're doing and actually change things you have to turn them into habits and make time for them into that brushing your teeth. Kind of vibe. Yeah totally that's awesome. Did water pick rod. You look awesome. Thanks look great. You look like a train wreck. Six months ago bad. I felt that i was like fuck is working. Okay now you've been working on it putting in more work now than i've ever seen you put in for yourself. Yeah you've always put it in other places but for yourself. It's it shows two things you gotta turn on jumper to prove it yet on the court. Yeah yeah totally. Try swimming in the ocean surf and more. Yeah you and jen. Both were getting the ocean together Yeah yeah because even like outside of work stuff like we've had a rough couple of years Like i've got a daughter that just turned two but then like from when she was born until like a year later jin had postpartum depression and anxiety and that was really hard for her and then for me to support her and see her going through. That is really hard so yeah definitely some rough everybody has rough patches right so in rough things to deal with in life so this is kind of like how you think about them. Respond to them. And i'm trying to respond to them in a more positive way than i did in the past you are you can tell you. I think that's pretty cool today by your domain yet. Or what i do as why i like to see if they got the i domain also one domain to rule them all. Yeah because yeah. Because i was looking at your website. Real correspondent dot com. Everybody and i joke about it and it's funny. We throw it out there. But i the blog that i write there every week and then newsletters like my favorite project right now. Do you have any way of knowing how many people interact with it. I mean i can see how many people are on the newsletter. But i don't keep track of clicks or google. Analytic i don. I don't look at any of the website Stats or whatever. So i don't know jared hot chicken website hot chicken dot com who thought don't have mad webs dot com. I don't have.

"All the stages along the way can lead to you. Which manifested for me. Where i kind of woke up one day and i'm like damn i'm really don't feel like myself much of the time. I don't feel like who i'm supposed to be. And i'm not feeling the joy of all of the things that i used to feel which sucks which sucks right geno like man. I don't ever remember. Point where i just became bombed or sad or complacent or accepted that there wasn't a possibility for these new exciting things. And it's not like i'm not it's not like i'm not doing anything the whole time right. That's the weirdest thing about it reflecting on it is you have these people who are in. You both probably fall into the same category. Not that we have the same struggles or anything. But it's like you're like this really high functioning incredibly productive person but something's not quite right where it's like okay. Cool yeah i feel this way but amidst all of that we've been able to create this organization in start this business and that's been a catalyst for a lot of it too because once you know once you go into business i mean jeez. Talk about pressures. Now you're the boss now your business owner and a business owners look a certain way they act a certain way. They talk a certain way they interact with their team in a certain way. There's a cultural for what it means to be a business owner. And that i think amplified a lot of the things that i was struggling with. Because none of those things lined up with with me or my specific strengths or my way of communicating or connecting with people. So just in. The past year has been more i opening than any where i've been feeling more empowered and just kind of trying things out and going out on a limb to be like okay. What's the way that i would do this. Or what's the way that i would think about this. Go about connecting go about leading coaching and leading and forget what everybody else says you know still being learned from other people. But what's my own style. And in that i've i've been able to find a lot of joy so you know the story arc is you. You are who you are you use it for the sake of other people on society and at some point there can be this. This almost rediscovery rediscovering. What's in yourself. And that's why i draw that picture that's usually they're not sorry of the it's coming back the heart and the brain. That's like those two things. It's like the internal struggle that we all feel. Your hearts really pure wants to do things in a certain way and your brains rationalizing everything and your brains hyper aware of everything. That's like off kilter and you know i my thesis synopsis. Is that these two things that seem like. They're struggling against each other. Actually the most powerful when they're working together to where it's not like the brain leads the heart or the heart leads the brain. But it's like the heart knows. What is intuitively good and it has to work with the brain to figure out how to do those things in the best way because the brains a learning machine riot. We can't just be who we were when we were ten. Like there's other things we've learned so much so it's how to put that to use in a way that works with you. So that's kind of the those. Are the things that i'm unpacking. Which i think you know. I love kids books. I feel like that lives perfectly in like vision of a children's books. That's like some of my favorite books like Alexander terrible horrible. No good very bad day. You know of course where the wild things are. This is something that would be more longer than that same kind of format. We've got a big chunk of words and you know picture on every page like some of those richard. Scary books are kind of in that in that zone and pickle mobile but yeah it is for. It's for adults or young adults to adults whose kind of coming of age and his starting the inklings of having these feelings because these things start to creep out up you know you can feel him in junior high high school like right when you're starting to get on that. Ooh i'm really aware of who i am. And there's all these different groups. And where do i fit in. You know you start categorizing yourself cook wearing flannel yourself right. Yeah what am i gonna do. I don't really feel comfortable in this moment. So the goal is to create something that you know you can pick up. It's not a long. It wouldn't be a long read but you could read it every time you dip in you can kind of get a boost or it's a reminder of to look at things through your own perspective into honor honor that little voice inside of you. That's always talk to you. That's so easy to ignore because of many reasons and that kind of ties into what you're talking about too because one of those things that will teach it ignore their own. Inner voice is your phone like being on social media all the time constantly scrolling through not only just seeing what other people are seeing and comparing yourself to those other people but just like burning through time and energy for no for no good reason. Yeah yeah it's just like Yours kind of drifting like. You're not intentionally like spending your time on something that you probably want to be doing. Like i think people would be. You know i've seen it myself like like the example is like people like what do you do in the morning. Like i've worked on developing a morning ritual and like an evening ritual. I know you have a morning ritual you morning ritual like some people morning originals like they wake up and they immediately like turn on their phone and start checking ling. Instagram or social media. And that's like the first thirty minutes of the day. And what kind of thoughts and ideas does that put into your mind. When you're starting the day versus waking up and riding or or meditating or doing like some physical activity like doing pushups or or just anything to get your body moving your brain moving. Set you up for like a like. What's your intention for the day. Like just setting you up for like to be in a really good place. In contrast that versus the person that wakes up in turns on their phone and look social media for the first thirty minutes. I think this first person is gonna just be way more fulfilled in what they're doing. Yeah it's something about passive versus active taking control of your day. Your day is determined. You set your set the course of your day and it's determined by by you know passive engagement in your life. Or what are you doing when you open your phone in the morning. You're you're not doing anything. You're just kind of Just gonna see what's going on. There's no real purpose. If you start your day with a purpose it just feels so good. And what kind of thoughts is that creating in your mind. Like i mean i'm going to say like usually they're probably not great just comparing to like these little snapshots or whatever like what everyone else is doing. And i don't think that's like a really positive way for your mind. Wake up either you. I mean i think that goes for the news and everything else is well. Yeah even reading the newspaper accounts to me in that same genre. It's negative it's all. Everything related is seldom positive. These days which is a bummer. Yes so it's like. I don't watch news right. It's like i make get like one email The now pity nasdaq aussie market. It's not a thing to transfer up dow jones news. You know what like bitcoin all day coin does cloud give my email from derek zibo. Maybe it's one day that like highlights some of like the things going on in the world just to know the it'll be informed but not be emotionally affected by all the negative news that like the companies..

"Some search for a peace that comes from the origins or the thrill of discovering some historic figure in their bloodlines. But for some a little surprise. Information can challenge long held beliefs family and create new context for your current relationships. That certainly what happened to shut. Who simple journey to confirm his irish heritage produced a few surprises system on charles on forty two years old originally from pittsburgh. I'm going to school in pittsburgh now but i lived in north carolina for bass in my life. I initially decided to do because my wife did the dna tests. I but my interest in ancestry predated. Actually doing the dna already done a little bit of research and knew a little bit about my family history. I decided to do is dna because my wife did and they periodically run sales. And i got it on a good deal where i got it for forty nine dollars. I said okay. I'm gonna go with that as mostly twenty three year or another one. One of the things. I discovered a lot of stuff was a big surprise. I'm predominantly irish. I kinda figured that. I thought that i would be a little bit more scottish because my great grandmother was born in scotland but she happened to be half irish so little more irishman. I bought a little scottish home but eighty percent. Or so of my. Dna comes from the british isles which was not a huge surprise. What was the surprise. Was that i found out like unmatched with somebody as a first cousin and i did not recognize the name and come to find out. She'd been searching for us. It's suspected the man that she knew as our bother was not actually biologi- than matching me as a first cousin confirmed that and so one of my uncles had a daughter that i guess you know he knew about and the mother knew about but pretty much. Nobody else knew about and now that we're kind dealing with. That was not very happy with that secret coming to light. You know i'm in my forties getting to know somebody that you would find within. You know my cousins a couple of years older than me. She lives down in florida. And we're just kind of getting to know each other now. It's been a couple of months so easily from pittsburgh to so we're big steelers fan so at least we have in common their another interesting thing. I found out or maybe not so interesting. So i'm going to enter it in an interracial marriage and so i have a pretty open minded our billing. I could learn more but i feel like i have a pretty open mind and i'm open to anybody. I just never envisioned myself as being somebody who is descended from slave owners. I've found some slave owners. Federal soldiers and my heritage and with interesting about that is three of my grandparents are from the western pennsylvania. Pittsburgh area and one was from florida. And so it's from the The my grandfather who was born in florida. It's that line. That has some slave owners and confederate soldiers. Which i guess shouldn't be surprising. But i'd never really thought of it that way because you know everyone in my family's more or less open minded. I mean some of my family members could be a little more open minded but no one's like blatantly racist they might have with the bias or whatever but they're not you know openly blatantly hating people because of the color of their skin so i guess it just never dawned on me that i could have owners my ancestry and it made me think about a i. I went to unc chapel hill. I don't know anybody outside. The area knows much about silent sam but it was a a statute that was on the campus and it was a federal soldier got torn down in protesters and eighteen and has not been put back up but i was one of the people who spoke out and said that we should not have that monument on the campus. Now in hindsight doing that. I have played like you know my family. You know not directly but could've been some of the people who are placing these better monuments and it's just something. I'd never thought about well so one of the things i really thought about. This is my wife ancestry from what.

I guess in a way that i had never really been responsible before. Because i always felt like. I'm trying to do the right thing. I'm trying to be a good person. I'm trying to listen to other people's struggle and not judge and you know my aunt strong right and i think a lot of people who have their own struggle sometimes downplay on that and then you'll kind of personally responsible in a way just to think like you know there is a chance. It's probably very slim chance but that you know one of my ancestors wound. One of my wife dances and own another human being lake speaking. Oh nobody in. My family owned played. I hear other people say it all the time. Oh well why should i feel guilty about about reading. None of my aunt. Or don't play. And i guess in a way. I felt that way to not that.

Some of my ancestors were on china that depot with gang researching ring more back in line. I want an ordinary mind. I'm back to like my grandfather. Something which is like fourteen hundred.

Sort of weird sublime. Moments of coincidence or things? You didn't know you were going to see when you're outside. Yeah, photography is an interesting art form in that sense because it's. More than anything else. It's about like looking for that little moment of beauty. Right like yes, everything else you're. You're like processing.

Care about reality right and so I feel like I should speak out against certain things or for certain things and I. Don't know. How do you look at trying to balance that out as a creator like? Like me, really, it's tough and IT'S A. Complicated. Thing, because. Some of it gets into the nature. What twitter is and dozens of it's about. Stories and storytellers, and if we have a responsibility and I don't think. That we do I don't think there is a responsibility as in. It's our job. To have or share opinions but I think we're also. Uniquely not just storytellers, physicians in artists are uniquely placed. Here to be able to conceptualize all kinds of things. In a way, it's again artistic or metaphorical, or whether it's just creative profanity. And while I don't think it's their job to have an opinion of state. I also don't think they should be kept from having. Those opinions first of all because artists are people as it turns out as much as some people want them to be. Wage, slaves or people who just don't. Contribute anything at all. I If we are to assume that everybody has a voice than certainly artists writers musicians have. An equal voice and so there's no reason we shouldn't talk about this. Just people just as having the ability to engage subjects. And then in in a sense to try to talk about what we're feeling about thing in to. Move people to. You know consider that opinion or to be. Argued With so you? Are having that living conversation. Twitter is also. Sometimes one of the places where it's great and bad. Too to have those kinds of conversations, it gets difficult. Because there's. Increasingly so little signal and so much noise, so it's hard. I was talking because. Twitter being what it is like I, was talking with friends recently, and it's like.

Visceral in the most literal sense, visceral place. Was Interesting. Very just an unsettling uncomfortable book, almost of like watching her reading requiem for a dream. There's just like Oh okay. you start to realize not everybody reads fiction to feel good about things, and then you're like okay, so that's good to know, and that's certainly I've been there and done that. In certain times of my life, he really cleave toward those types of books as opposed to steer away from yeah, as in a way of Like commiseration, someone else's. Is Thinking in place right now. Yeah and also, if you're in a more comfortable place, it's easier to read that type of thing. Whereas if you're in a less comfortable place whether globally emotionally, sometimes, you want a little more. Home cooking and not something. Strange yeah, it makes sense. NPR NPR review of wanders that said It's full of social commentary that digs into everything from global warming to racial tension. While never preaching or bogging down, the action packed story I think that's true and I wondered. What does it look like for you to try to? Have commentary in there with out You know preaching in the pejorative sense. It's hard. But you never to me? Preaching is about. Talking Down to? Talking over people trying to be like I'm just trying to broadcast a thought into your head a via the book and I don't want to do that. I said one of the things a book should make you do make you think. In addition make you feel things should make you think and thinking is not something. You do easily if I don't give you. Different ideas different polar viewpoints in nuance for it's just like this is bad. It's asking you to accept an answer and not think about the question. And I don't want to give answers I. WanNa give questions so I. Try for I mean. There are some people who think the book is preachy. I've seen some reviews that suggest that they feel that it's. Too Political and then it's making too many statements, but I tried. Diligently to. Offer alternative sort of you points and different types of characters who feel and believe different things and even in. Either quote unquote protagonist, what you would conceive as good characters they have. Massive falls from grace, and they have you know complexities inside their hearts, and they do bad things, and sometimes some of the not good characters. To. Say something that you think Oh. That makes sense like Oh that's upsetting me now. The someone someone horrible said something that makes sense. So I think trying to put all of those things in there. In giving those layers hopefully gives people a richer experience in doesn't just kind of lead them to the meal. who demand them to eat it, yeah. Yeah as I think about that. There really is such a complex. Movement in each of those main characters that there's there's none of them that you're just like. You did it gets. Right exactly I don't.

"You. You take this. said. So fiction. What is it What is it good for There's a quote which is it rehashed from other things, but David Foster Wallace applies it To fiction specifically said good fictions job is to comfort the disturbed in disturbed, the comfortable way thing about that. I. Don't hate it. I mean there's. An aspect fiction that can be escapist, and there is an aspect of fiction which is the opposite which brings you closer to the type of thing you're trying to keep, and then there's a really. Almost masterful form, and it's something that genre is very good at. When, in the right hands is something that feels escapist, but it's really talking about the exact thing. You're trying to escape from so somehow giving you. Contrary both of those things at the same time, and that's really the I think the maximum power fiction is to. Both give you entertainment, but then Austin make you think and feel things at the same time. Yeah, I like that. Do you have a book that you remember? That was like a large comfort to you and certain time. Comfort Comfort to me. I mean that could that could be. It just gave me an escape from something horrible. I read before I was really reading books I was reading. Comic Strips Comic books by the I was reading Bloom County in Calvin and Hobbes and farce on those were my earliest escape. 'cause they were sort of really absurd and deranged in a wonderful way, but I also feel with something like Calvin and Hobbes county. And far really all of them. There were some sort of deep squarely truths buried in there. They were they were not. Young, Calvin and Hobbes especially sometimes really stared down the barrel of like sure he's a kid imagining all kinds of in saint stock, but. There's some there's some rich. Loam soil kind of going on in strips so. Definitely, those were things that were comforting in escapist to me, but that even looking back now you're like Oh. There was a lot going on. Those. Three panels than you imagined. Yeah I used to. My Dad gave me he had this far side and Calvin Hobbs then it was. A recently tried to. Had A couple books stored away. I tried to get my kids into one of them like that. Yeah I don't know. Hasn't gone there yet I I I really liked him, but I really liked them especially, because like my dad gave them to me and it was like a shared.

"Is Actually. It was a book that showed me I didn't know how to book a write books because. It was entirely different and everything. I thought that I knew about how I wrote books, not just about how writers right, but how I write. Tended to be wrong so. whiffed my deadline and I wrote a huge book that I didn't know I was going to write A. Book because I did I wasn't steady. Like sometimes you know usually. I read a book. I read about two thousand words. A day and Kinda hit that, but this was like some days. I great five hundred words five thousand. Is just a way more erotic. came out feeling more organic as a result of that so I don't know I. Don't know if I'll ever be able to do that again, so we'll do I. Mean I feel like that is partially because it was? Being powered by all of these random things together. Like what do you mean what do you? What do you attribute the difference to? It might be that. You know if there's an analog to cooking sometimes. If you get the right ingredients together, it's mostly just about adjusting levels and discovering the flavors, but. Maybe! It's because I've been doing it for a long time. To figure out some things internally about how you tell stories you don't know them intellectually. I've or maybe it was just the right time for that, but yeah would. That's kind of what I wonder if it's so. intimately like. Connected to what is actually happening in the world right now and a variety of ways, but like a variety of very weird ways. Yeah, so you have a in their detecting pandemic? You have a pandemic going on with. From Bats. Yup but from all the political stuff and White supremacist. Thing yeah, and I feel like. I don't know I. Think it's a helpful way to. Hopefully for some people to to see some of that stuff on I think the way you handled like some of the white pharmacy stuff Through a sympathetic character kind of coming into contact with that stuff and like showing. Some of like the poll of ideology or something, and but while. While then starting to show a dark, the dark side of it in a way, that's not just like. Hey, this is bad. It's it's more vice real sense of that Yeah I think that's that's the thing it's. It's you can't do that in A. At least not in the same way, it doesn't impact the same way in an essay or something. You're not living now. have to have some legs. To. Talk a little bit with the truth thing on like. Cannon issues I know you tweeted that? Is An article from. Bio Nine something a little back. talking about people's obsession with cannon kind of ruining. Yeah. There's a quote from that I. Thought was great says. The hunger facts above all else leads to things like filler episode, becoming a derogatory term for stories that don't advance the larger ongoing plot or don't include some shocking new revelation that someone can add to a list. This need rob's discussions about the stories of nuance interpretation because who cares what you think happened when there's an answer from the word of God to the question that you might have had you tweeted. This is true and right Yeah I just I wonder if you anything like you. Thought that that sparked in you. Have you experienced any of that like over intense cannon with your own? Absolutely? Star Wars. Obsessed with cannon, one marvel story that was. A vader connection to rogue one, and it never overtly says what it says..

"Reality in the sense of you know the modern world and all of the things we're with they. A lot of that is built. To obscure. A deeper truth because it's trying to you know, get money from you or whatever it is like. So instead of wondering what really makes me happy, you are being sold something that is supposed to make you happy right precisely. Yeah, it's all a distraction to some degree. Yeah, so I I recently read wanders which I loved and. I feel like you probably did a bunch of research in that book like Yeah, but I mean part of it was. On both a really lazy greedy writer in. a lot of what goes into that book was stuff. I was already interested in. So I had already done research, not for purposes of using it a book just because it was fascinating and strange to me. Epidemiology artificial intelligence to opposite politics to getting. You know getting that altogether. And then wanders sort of coalesced and contextualized. Anxieties and interests at the same time and instead of just sort of picking one. And running with it I was like well. What if all, but the snakes in the CAN? That'll be a good way to write this book so I literally just jammed the book full of all of the things that. I was interested in both is again in Active Supreme Laziness greed. It's kind of rather because it. I'll try not to. Boilers. It's hard. If you yeah E. Show Gory Wanderers if you haven't before he listens and. I feel like it doesn't end up coming across as Like weirdly packed full. It gives like I don't know it gives like a broader reality to the the story. Because all these things are interacting, it's just like hyper focused on one thing, and it's out of context of everything else. It's like these things all affect each other and you know like. that. especially like any kind of pandemic works is, it is affecting one thing, and then it affects everything else because of that. I really wanted to create that sense of be gears were working together and and giving it enough. Time and energy around the characters to serve sell all the weirder stuff like it's really about characters, and if they're not finding a connection to all those things in being. The movers of everything that's happening. I always say the plot is sort of irrelevant. Unless you assume the characters create plot with whatever they do, anything character does creates opportunities storytellers I think approach plot like it's a thing you. Kind of start with and then sort of graft characters onto the plot, but really to me needs to be the other way around, and that creates an organic. Growth for the narrative goes. Yeah, how do you? See Try to start with you maybe a rough idea and then find your characters. Where the starting ago. Yeah and then I let them take the lead on it and they're going to do in response to it and. If they if what they do changes, my perception of what the story was GonNa do that's great. That's actually ideal because it means it's surprised me and then if it surprises me. Ideally surprises readers, and that's kind of one of the goals, anyway, simply surprising people. Do you have. The general thing laid out though after you've kind of like played with this in your head before you right at all. I usually do wonders did really. Wanders just like A.

Here's my conversation. With Senator Chuck Grassley Senator Chuck Grassley. Welcome to politico. Pulse. Check. Hey, I'm glad to be with you anytime. I get a chance to communicate when my constituents that's what Representative government's all about. And I hope they communicate back. All you're always communicating. You have so many different paths from from sitting down with someone like media using social media, which we will get to. But I wanted to start with this. It's a new congress. You have a number of new responsibilities including your president pro tempore of of the Senate. This is significant responsibility or fourth in line now for succession to the president. I'm curious what in your realm of new responsibilities has been most interesting or surprising to you. As president pro tem. I think the number of duties that the code requires that really has not a lot of discretion. It's mostly ministerial. Title or maybe say ceremonial, but really if you summed it up, the president of the Senate is the vice president United States, but as you probably know in the last seventy years, I think starting with Nixon when he was vice president vice presidents haven't presided over the Senate or be involved in the Senate very much except for vote breaking ties and in ceremonial things. So I like to summit up that president pro tem outside of being in presidential succession, does whatever the president of the United States or the vice president of the United States does as president Senate only you do it when he's not here, which is about ninety nine percent of the time. Does your staff now call you Mr President behind closed doors? No. No, they call me. Chuck, I I'm not at that level. So have to refer to you. As Senator Grassley, your chairman again for the third time of the Senate finance committee after giving up leadership of the judiciary committee. I'm curious why you decided to come back..
