"Uh, the the embassy. Those who are running the government the the Democrats have put forth in their $3.5 trillion what I believe will be a destruction of the U. S economy. The removal of four Oh one K deductions for American citizens. This is the Democrats way of disincentivize ng Americans of saving and investing in themselves. Because they want Americans dependent on government. That's just one reason why this is so bad. Give me some others. Oh, my gosh. So in that same plan is something that is called the sensible Taxation and Equity promotion Act the step back and what you should know is that is a zombie tax. So if you own a farm if you only small business when you die and you want to pass that on to your air There is a step up in basis. So your your ears are not being taxed from day one. The Democrats want to eliminate that so the average tax on a small farm would be 70 to 80%. It would wipe out small business. In the United States of America. It would wipe out the family farm. Uh and that's how they want to pay for this. This infrastructure bill, you know, it's just kind of the same old thing with Democrats seeking a big government solution. The problems where conservatives Republicans are looking at more market based Solution. But the Democrats, you know, the sensible taxation act. I mean, that was that would be a killer for small. I love their names that Obama care the Affordable Care act, which was unaffordable. The sensible Taxation Act, which is anything but sensible. Last question I have for you because I am sick and tired of politics, any politics, conservative or otherwise in business, dealings and entertainment in my products. I just I just don't. I don't want to invest in companies that do that anymore. So if folks want to invest with you and either fund conservative companies or companies that remember Hey, I'm in business to be in business not to be woke. What is their first step? What do they got to do to to to transform their portfolios into something that comports with their either conservatism or they're just wanted to be left alone? Well, I will tell you time is running out. So based on our research 73% Of the S and P 500 on all conservative issues. Companies are rated liberal. Only 27% of the S and P. 500 is still what we would consider GST neutral. So I would just ask your listeners to go to our website that can vote advisers dot com. That's the number Two nd vote advisers dot com. We have a lot of good information on there about our funds that are performance. Um and just, you know, hopefully, support companies like ours that are trying to push back. I would say that. You know, financial services is co dependent on your partner.

"Have to do is ask. Alexa Open wghp. What can you do to defund our political enemies? Let's ask Daniel Grant. He's earned his NBA from Vanderbilt University and a bachelor's in science and economics from Florida State University. He is the CEO and co founder of second Vote. Advisors. Daniel, Welcome to Chris Alcedo show. Hey, Chris. Thanks for having me It's very important and sadly, we've we've devolved into this into the strata in America, In my view. To where you've got businesses that go on. The old paradigm, which is businesses ought not be political. Or we want everybody's money are our main focus should be to, uh, to make money and deliver for our shareholders. Then you've got these other woke businesses. That are like, well no. Our job is to use our wealth to implement communism and socialism and government power over our lives and you have a solution, explained Well, thanks, Chris. Yes, um, that the problem really is your money is funding an attack on your state, your industry or largest companies, and you don't even know it so You know, there's Whoa cos there's unwell companies, but at the end of the day, a lot of companies that you think are doing what you would like them to do or not, And that's what our company is doing. So, for instance, Texas is Heavily dependent on possible fuels and a lot of accent, man. It turns out there if you're a state employee, and you're invested in Texas pension plan your capital. Your money is being used to fund an attack on your state. Exxon just lost three board seats to next activist edge one. Shell just lost an important Dutch court case and Moody's just published a report saying 40% of corporations Pose an environmental threat. So if you're an employee in Texas And your money is being managed by BlackRock. Well, guess what? Black Rock. Just put those three board members on Exxon and what they're trying to do is Course Exxon into get away from fossil fuels, But people out of Jobs in Texas. And what our company does is we research What these companies are doing. Who owns the companies? And it's more of a 21st century way to look at companies. You know if you look at a lot of the typically responsible funds and conservative companies out there They will look at how companies generate revenue. What we do is we look at how companies are spending their profits. What advocacy what lobbying what corporate policies and statements Our company is following And then we we exclude the companies that we feel are are not being fair to conservative. And then we have eight PhDs on our staff. We are We've come up with a great financial methodology to deliver returns to investors while avoiding Some of these very woke companies, So we're it's a different methodology that we're following and we're really trying to focus on corporations that maximize profits. Um while conforming to ethical custom, and that's what Milton Friedman says. He said. You know, companies should follow and help traditional charity, but they shouldn't be focused on a polarizing. Social justice agenda that offense 50% of the country because Chris when you do that cos hurt their brand. They heard their cash flows and ultimately, they hurt their stock prices. Which hurts you and I. Yeah, No, no. No kidding. Let me ask you your opinion on where these woke corporations have gone wrong and hitching their wagons to the to the American Left wing. Well, you know, Unfortunately, these corporations are being steered that way by asset manager All of them. So if you go and you know, look at Black Rock, for example, they control $9 trillion And they have a stewardship team. You can go to their website and they will tell you last quarter alone. They went to 482 companies and their corporate management teams and boards. And said, Listen, guys, you can either start making more progress. To what we want, which is S G, environmental, social governance, and that's being and operations or we will vote you out. So you know, you got these management teams and I don't want to defend the management teams, but you know what they're following with the squeaky wheel says. And there really isn't anybody on the conservative right doing what we're doing, and that's why we have publicly traded funds. We have an ETF called life l Y f we have e t f That's focused on the Second Amendment, its ticker symbol as judges. And you know we go. What we do is we gather access and we go up against the black rest of the world. Well, let me ask you and we say Hey, please don't Don't Except these, uh, these boards. These board members And the hope is they started listening to it. But right now, the boards are only hearing from the left. Daniel Grant our guest right now. He's the co founder and CEO of Second Vote Advisors. How before I get to some other things that are going on, and, um In news that you might be able to comment on Let me know how the fund because it sounds like your investment strategy differs from from convention. How is your fund performing? Well, thanks and honestly, the only way a company like ours can grow and succeed and push back. Is to perform is to have returned and are two funds year to date have handily beating the market beating the S and P 500. We have indexes out there that compete with the S and P 500, which is one of the largest indexes in the world. Competes with the Kale, the 400, which is the world's largest and oldest, He assumed that And we beat them every year for the past 10 years and are indexes have Average annual alpha of over 8%. That means that beats the S and P 500 by over 8% each year, so they're performing well, and, you know, I would attribute that to both our unique social screens as low as our financial methodology. All right. Well, that I want to get to some news that's out there because of this..

"Hour. I'm going to be You know that we have a fine sponsor here in the South Seattle show its Patriot Mobile And one of the main Uh, great points about Patriot Mobile. Aside from the service they provide. Is that there are conservative Christian company. And I've been saying this for a long time that It is going to be up to we, the people to start defunding our enemies. Through government. We are funding our enemies. Government run schools, which I'm going to get to here in a minute. We're funding our enemies that the left wing What everyone to call them socialist Communist. Whatever those who, uh, if you want to look at it, very simply those who want to rule and those who don't want to be ruled. That's the dividing line and those who want to surrender to being ruled. Under the Under the promise of all we'll take care of you from cradle to grave, irresponsible Americans. Don't even really have the The right to call themselves Americans without attitude. That's the most UN American attitude. There is, there's a word for it, but there's it's not American. Isn't the word so anyway? So you got Patriot Mobile? They are doing things with their money. That don't undermine liberty. Freedom. Our Constitution. Other woke companies are doing just that. I mean, just take your pick on American Airlines Delta. ABC, Disney. The National Football League. The Communist Basketball Association. Major league baseball these corporations Are doing things with their money that directly harm you and your family. So it's time we stop funding those things. Those are things. These are things that we can do. It's our money, but well, I should say, Let me put a caveat on that. The Socialist Democrats right now up on Capitol Hill are about ready to take away the tax deduction for four Oh one K investments. You know you can that the government used to say, Well, we want to encourage the American people to save To invest in their retirement now the Socialist Democrats because they want your money. They believe they deserve your money and that you work for them. They are now much of a polish that the right off For 41 case. There's going to that. Well, we don't We want your money. And we're going to take it. Why? Because Republicans are rolling over like scalded puppies. And allowing and serving you up, like, uh, Today's dinner buffet to these socialists who are ravenous for your money, so Can't do much about the government right now, because we don't have a political party that is out there serving The Constitution. We have a political party that serving you. But you can't do what? How you invest. It's up to you many. What do we do? What do we do? Well, this is something you can do and we're going to be talking. To an investment fund. That is geared toward that mindset. Making your money go go toward things. That aren't harming you. Like a lot of these world companies. So that discussion is coming up with Daniel Grant. Make sure you stick around for that. That's it's a quarter after next hour. In the meantime. Yes, I am very much aware of what happened in Plano. There are other things happening here in the Metroplex. Um We have an opportunity. That is, if there's anybody listening. At the Fort Worth ISD School board. Many of them, of course, are of the people I mentioned before they don't give a damn about those of you who elected them. If they did, they wouldn't have hired Kent Scribner. And his conduct While he has been the superintendent of Fort Worth, I SD has been abhorrent. Arrogant. Unaccountable. And there is a meeting tonight. Many parents have been letting me know they're going to go. I would encourage everybody else to go. And it's about time that can't Scribner paid a price. For his arrogance. For his belief that he is an accountable and answerable to nobody. Maybe Texas ought to consider. This is just me. I'll stop my head here, making the school superintendents elected positions. So that They are accountable to we, the people not to these School boards. They get elected and don't really give a damn about what you say anyway. So if you show up and make it abundantly clear to that school board that you do not want can't script her back because, among other things, He allows Mexican flags to be flown at taxpayer of American taxpayer funded football games. Among other things, he's In favor of biological males showering with biological females in school. So long as they declare how pretty they feel today. The male or the female. Or how masculine they feel today. Male of female Um The implementation of critical race theory. The hate Whitey program against the will of American parents, Blacks, Browns whites. And also his lawlessness, implementing a mask mandate against Against the state's wishes. Against the rule of law in the state of Texas. If you want a different direction for Fort Worth, I s d. Now is the time. To show up. And let them know the way they did in Plano last night, parents showed up. It was it was a losing fight. Because what you all have to know is these SDS Are not accountable to you. They get their money. They get to take money out of your pocket and you don't You don't get a damn thing to say about it. Republicans and Democrats made sure of that in the Texas State House. They've abandoned you. They've stabbed you folks up in Plano, All of you, who are frustrated That you voice your opinions about your parental rights and authority. And you walked out of there and they said, Yeah. Hey, here's the middle finger. Screw you and your parental authority. The reason why they can do that. Is that these? These individuals are making these choices are unaccountable. They know they can take your money and fund their left wing nonsense. Their lawless left my nonsense and you don't have a blessed thing to say about it because you don't have any power and your politicians made sure of that. Now for me. I don't believe that's representing my interests as politicians. I hope now I do believe there representing somebody's interest. Just not mine as a parent. So you have a lot of work to do. To make sure that those who are elected to the state house, give your rights your do. And at those who looked on these school boards do the same..

Were adamant that if they wanted to do a totally new style of poker show that they couldn't get an old style broadcaster. They had to get some new blood in there and they jumped up and down and stamp their feet and as a result without really deserving it without really having ever been on tv before not even really without ever actually having been on tv before they put me in that spot and i was very lucky to get it because it's a really great show arguably the best poker show cash game show.

I get to that being in the right place at the right time. Having the support of the right people and it having people believe in me and take a chance on me to to my own horn a tiny bit. It's mostly those other factors. But the thing i brought to the table. That wasn't locker based on the outside environment was. I really wanted to be a comedian. I really wanted to be on television. I wanted to be conan. O'brien and i was just like. How can i apply those sensib. That sensibility to poker. And it was kind of a square peg and around hole but people got it. People really liked it. They lie wasn't very good at any of it but people like i was trying and people like that i was doing different things and i always felt like most of what we did. The poker speaks for itself. So i kind of feel like anything poker. Wise that you do doesn't have to be that poker.

"But how is this new culture affecting markets and investing with analysis. I'm joined by co founder and ceo. Second vote advisors daniel grant daniel. Let's start with the current market environment. Under the biden administration. June brought a spike in inflation. As efforts to pass a bipartisan infrastructure bills sputters in congress. What do investors need to keep in mind in this current financial climate. Well raymond a chairman. Powell testified yesterday to the house financial services committee in some of the facts that came out ler. Cpi last month increased five point one percent. Which is the fastest rate since. October await Home prices are up fifteen percent. According to the case schiller index used car. prices are up thirty percent but What what's your pol said. Nothing to worry about move on What what he was saying is a inflation is high as it is consistent with their goal of two percent its transitory and will moderate in the fall and it's driven by supply chain interruptions and labor market disruption. So you know if you look at the economy. According to chairman powell nothing to look at all is well. Keep moving on But you know it was. It was an interesting committee meeting because the democrats. It's the same old struggle. The democrats are really want big government while republicans want market-based solutions. And the issue that we're seeing in In the financial markets and the reason why we created this company is what we're starting to see is the economic model underpinning. Our country is under attack. By stakeholder capitalists by this environmental social governance investing theme As you know stakeholder capitalism its main proponents or people like klaus schwab the world economic forum and and some of the largest Ceos in the world and what they're saying is companies should no longer be run for the benefit of shareholders. It should be run for the benefit for the goodell all other stakeholders so good for society. Good for the environment. Which okay that. That may sound fine. But the definition of good by klaus schwab in the davos crowd is much different than the definition of goodbye. Libertarians christians and conservatives. So what. These stakeholder did. Stakeholder capitalists are really doing a foreign investors is they are taxing you know. They are putting costs on investors and your funding agenda. That you probably don't agree with your your funding a social justice agenda that typically fifty percent of the country does not agree with and when you're doing that corporations are hurting their brands or hurting their cash flows in their ultimately hurting their stock prices. So it's it's a very interesting time in in the markets and in the economy. Now you mentioned these. These capitalists that are targeting Social agendas and using their companies to advance them. Your group.

"Narrow down slightly for you or are you optimistic or pessimistic about our capitalist system which is under an all sorts of ways not just by government. Which kinda used to but if you you've outlined compellingly last half an hour or so by i private institutions and private capitalist companies themselves. Well i think you've got an answer to that in the context of timeframe in you know. Hey i'm ultimately optimistic. I think he will understand. Our economy is driven by free and fair companies. is driven by capitalism. I think in the near term Bills that are being introduced like this. Corporate governance bill. I mentioned earlier can do a lot of damage so overtime optimist i. I think we're gonna win out at the question then becomes. How much pain do we have to realize. In terms of taxes and regulation that will ultimately be proven out to be false in wrong. How much pain do we have to endure to get to the other side. And i'm that that is where my concern comes in. There's just see such an overwhelming wave of lobbying of legislation of efforts from the es g community that there could be there could be a period of pain year that we we don't need to endure but you know it's it's a.

"Clear their carbon footprint and by forty percent of their business into sustainable activities so away from fossil fuels in last week. Moody's published a report saying forty percent of corporation pose an environmental threat. So when i'm talking to this red state treasurer he's asking you. What what do we do. How do we combat this. Because the efforts of this ground. Game that i'm talking about a really starting to produce results for es g four. The liberal left is doing you. You would never see a tiny startup. Activist hedge fund be able again three board seats on exxon. But what they did is they approached blackrock. They approached vanguard the approached the largest asset managers out there that have all bought into es g theme and they are organized. Five years ago you know. They were not organized. Today they are is infrastructure is built and it is now producing results so stupid question dan for financial ignoramuses such as myself. So how do you. How do you win a board seat. It shareholder voting so you propose a resolution And you do what engine one which is a smallest is a activist hedge fund New proposer own director. You propose a director that has your interest in it and then you go out. You approach the largest shareholders. And you get them to vote for that director. And i can promise you. The exxon did not propose those three directors because their main goal is to get exxon to diversify out of fossil fuels to stop the investment in fossil fuels to at the end of the day. It'll hurt this red state treasurer and hurt red state governor So you are at you know. I hate to say it. But an asset manager like us is very is viewed as stayed in old fashioned. Kinda what are those guys even do. But i really feel like our industry is very important to what is going on. It's really the nexus is to what's going on and small hedge funds like this exxon one understand that and they are approaching. The larry thinks of the world that share that ideology So what we need to do is we need to be in front of corporate boards. We need to Proposing our own shareholder resolutions and at the end of the day. We probably need to be proposing our own directors so another phenomenon. That's been brought to the fore last year. So is the these. Ceo's you know major iconic american companies that you think would have the ability just to ignore twitter and social media seemingly pushed around by by twitter. Mobs is a guilty conscience. Is this sort of Judgment and thinking you know if a hashtags is trending on twitter that the whole world is watching you know. And they can't afford to defy these people or is it or is it a calculation. You know there's been a lot of commentary about this over the last several years. Oh well it's good for these companies to be woke. It's good it's good. Pr good marketing. Because the millennials are coming out going to be the big big spenders going forward. They're they're more left wing than than prior generations. So yeah it makes sense for for cocaine delta to do this well you know there are some true believers out there right. You know. I would put brian moynihan the ceo of be a jack dorsey. A coke delta though. Ceo's actually believe what they are saying and they believe what they are doing is going to benefit society as a whole right so there are people like that. I do believe there are a lot of these. Companies are giving lip service. And frankly that's why our research company exists. We kinda get underneath that. You'll look at some of our funds in. We get this question every day. Why is company xyz in your fund and a lot of the reason is these corporate. See us are giving lip service. But they're not actually putting their dollars for that type of advocacy number one but number two. If you look at the people that feel they are doing good. You know it goes back to how we started this podcast. In their definition of good does not align with probably fifty percent of this country so a corporate ceo whether he believes it or not he really should rethink that stance because he should be focused on his brand value right. The ceo of coq should say before i say something. How is that going to impact my company. He's an individual in this country. He has his first amendment rights. He can say something and not be persecuted for it but is that really upholding his fiduciary. Duty and our answer to that at second boat advisors is no it's not he is damaging the credibility of coke damaging its cash flows in its stock price. And you should not be doing that. Companies should avoid social justice activism and stick with producing a product. Everyone's got the wisdom of that famous. Michael jordan line right i guess someone pushing him to say left wing stuff on something or other. He's like that. Republicans buy sneakers to a lot of ceos. They don't remember that.

"Companies that being said the rights granted under the first amendment form the basis of our society. It was keeps us together. Makes us strong. So our companies that can vote advisors feels that companies should be inspired by the first amendment right. You're absolutely right. If jack dorsey wants to kick trump off his platform and lose millions upon millions of members because of that he can do it. It's his company and he isn't governed by the first amendment but our company feels he should be Any time a company like twitter does something like that and goes against the basic freedoms that are guaranteed by the first amendment. We feel that is wrong. We feel it. It hurts our society and ultimately we all paid for it in the long run. So you're right you know companies can do it. It's ceo's can do it. But it's wrong and i think many of us know intuitively. They should not do. They should be protecting those basic freedoms even if they aren't legislated to protect them and i think what you see coke in delta in many of these companies doing is. They're hurting their brands. They're hurting their cash. Flows and ultimately what they're doing is hurting their stock prices and that that is not sound business. And that's why our company exists to to go up against what some of these. Ceo's are doing and what the asset managers are doing and unfortunately a lot of the pressure. That these ceo's are feeling are from these asset managers and i'll blackrock the largest asset manager in the world. They control nine trillion dollars. They have created a stewardship team in all the main asset. Managers have stewardship teams. Now you go to blackhawks website and they will talk about how last quarter alone. They visited five hundred companies and told those boards if they are not making progress towards g goals hitting these metrics. They will vote them out in. Black rock is absolutely doing it. The stewardship Team page is chock full of metrics on what they're doing to advocate on behalf of this is espn theme. And you know we feel. It's wrong at my company and and that's why we exist in and we've got blown our team and attracted some of the smartest people in the country to to what we're doing so be answered calling out. Not necessarily you know there's no legislate effects to this. I don't know how. I you can't legislate against Stupidity maybe you can i. I don't know I do think if you can get the word out. Like we're doing people will understand the danger but right now. Corporate ceos are only hearing from the left. So they're they're just being drawn that way. And i tell people we don't have to be the size of black rock to make a difference right. I i can go to the boards of these banks. And i can talk to them about what joining the partnership for carbon financial accounting is gonna mean in the real world and there are directors there that will listen to us. And i i do feel like can give us a reason to push back. And when larry fink fumble blackrock and his team call what i would love. Ceo's at say. Listen larry we hear what you're saying. We hear what you want. But i also have dan from second boat advisers calling and don't do that stay neutral and at the end of the day. Larry it just makes sense for us to To avoid these social justice issues and focus on our business sudan. Let's talk a little bit. What's what's happened over the last year or so when this just seems. The trend seems to have accelerated and a massive way. Since the the killing of george floyd where just seemed like all of a sudden. It's every company every major company that has to speak. This language has to adopt this this priorities and it just just seemed to a lot of us who had been paying close attention also just seemed to sweep the entirety of corporate america. Almost yeah you know. It has been the last year. I'd say the groundwork has been laid for many years. So i think george floyd really started to push for the diversity and inclusion aspect of years g investing. But i think what has really happened. Is this ground. Game that i was talking about has started to materialize. And i'll give you a great example. Last week i met with a red state treasurer. He was responsible for investing over seventy billion dollars in his state. It's mean economy is heavily reliant on fossil fuels so its main industries its largest companies and they are all under this renewed attack. It's really incredible. What has happened over the last year. Like you mentioned and just last week alone as we're talking exxon loss three board seeds to a small activist hedge fund. I it was. It really shook the grounds in the financial world. Shell lost a very important dutch court case that is basically in a shell a.

"Be regulatory at the small size business level and that just increases the cost for everybody and is anti-competitive and one thing that happened just yesterday is the democratic. Majority house voted a to completely along party lines to pass the corporate governance improvement in investor. Protection act helps sounds horrid found sterile. How how does that. How do you like the sound of that. So companies would have to provide shareholders information about their employees in executive pay political spending and get this climate risk in tax reporting and one of the main proponents is is maxine. Waters right so a another red flag there and you know she's out there saying you know her exact quotes were. There are no explicit. Efg requirements and investors are left to piece together the story of companies material risks. That that's an exact quote. And i think we all know. It is main natori today. If there is a material risk and a company it has to be disclosed when we launch our public securities are ages upon bauges disclosures material risk and maxine. Waters saying. No there's this whole category of risk to these companies that are not disclosed and we all know what that is. That is red tape. It's anti-competitive it's going to really hurt. Small and mid sized benefit companies to the benefit of large corporates the companies. I just mentioned so that that touch on the next question that i had which if we go to the numbers you're citing a little while ago about returns in theory then if that's the case you know the non es world should outperform the espn world. And eventually you know everyone gets onto that and ninety nine hundred ninety s g wins but One way that wouldn't be true of government comes and puts its its hands on on scale but in theory is that is that conception right that if we just have a level playing field the the folks who are focused on old fashioned shareholder capitalism should should do better and the side. Yeah i think you can make that argument. But what i would say is i feel like in many ways. A typical conservative mindset is a. What's the worst that could happen. You know you've got this guy. Dan grant out there talking about. Stakeholder capitalists for shareholder capitalists and there's this battle and many people's mind that means not much is going to happen and that implies that it's kind of a fair fight and what people need to understand is it's not a fair fight there is trillions of dollars behind. Es esp right now. All of the main banks all of the main asset managers the four main accounting firms. The main credit rating agencies fitch moody's All of them have adopted this. Es g philosophy there is now an infrastructure that is really set up against shareholder value advocates. Set up against the economy that we know and love set up against our economic principles. So i think it's easy to make a comment like you just made which is well you know at the end of the day. We're going to win out because we're right but you don't. I don't think people understand that the fingers are already on the scale and in the government is just one of them but there is a ground game out there. And i think george soros is a perfect example of playing locally and winning globally. And what he did is he went out and he got local politicians it got local prosecutors and he created this ground game and that is what is happening in the world. There is a ground game afoot with all of those organization. I just mentioned that is going to make it very difficult for non. Es geeta went out People are gonna you know a a great example is five years ago i would think most people would have considered board diversity rules kind of fringe idea right today. You've got the main banks. Goldman sachs nasdaq. The chairman of nasdaq came out and said we will not allow your company to go public unless you have minimum board diversity and what was fringe five years ago. Today is mainstream. There are proposals today and you could go to the world. Economic forum's annual report in september. Twenty twenty and it will talk about revoking the social licensed to operate of companies that don't meet mandatory requirements and that is fringe today. But i'm here to tell you. In five years that will no longer be fringe. That world economic forum report is very long and there are many mentions of the social licensed to operate and companies. That are not doing. The social good should not be operating and that day is coming so it would be nice to sit back and say well. We're going to win out. But unless people understand the threat understand where we're going to begin ear short period of time. We're not yeah. Let's very well put an obviously unfortunately disturbingly. This is the dynamic just so often in our society. There's a fringe idea. You know you can dismiss mock and then five years later as you say it's it's mainstream and or mandatory. So what do you say to to to my friends nutritional conservatives who might look at at at all the stuff you've outlined out outside of the maxine waters bill and say well you know this is freedom right. These are private companies. They get to make this what they wanna do. You know kick out a kick out of their bank companies. They thinker in a nasty bad society at. That's that's their that's their right and and The the just a function of freedom when we don't always like what freedom produces a in the first amendment protects individuals from government. It doesn't protect.

"Well you don't from our experience. And i and i think what you've seen through the history of the world is shareholder. Capitalism is what has made the us economy the strongest in the history of the world. More people throughout the world have been pulled out of poverty because of our brand of capitalism and for organizations like the world economic forum. These large corporates to say. Hey this no longer works. We're going to try something different. you know. Throughout the history of the world nothing has come close to creating wealth like our economy and the economic theory underpinning our economy so my understanding is advocates of. Es g will argue a point to studies that might might have dubious value but exist anyway point to studies that show you know. What is that the es g you know the the traditional and investing so you can do good and be so much involved in bettering our broader society. At same time you make more. Money is that Would he make that argument well. There is that argument out there. But i think for everyone. That is arguing that there's people on the other side of the coin saying that isn't true number one there's no standardized definition of. Es g so right now everybody is kind of making it up as they go But you our personal experience we. We have several securities we we have to publicly traded Ats e. g. I s. in life. Liffe and if you look at their performance so we are excluding companies that Pursue a social justice agenda on certain issues through the first quarter e. g. i s. was up twenty point eight percent in the s. and p. five hundred was up ten percent. Life was up. Fourteen percent and the s. and p. five hundred was up ten percent so our securities are absolutely the market And i don't think the. Es g world has that kind of data out there Very with our securities were getting Really a lot of interest in what we're doing the investment community We have indexes out. There we actually created in next call the neutral five hundred so companies at score a three on our rating system are included in that index. We've been able to To create past performance over the last ten years in s&p five hundred kale four hundred every year in the kale. D four hundred is the world's largest esp index was created in nineteen ninety four and it is the benchmark for espn and are securities are indexes beat that index every year. And the other thing i would like to mention is the s. and p. five hundred. I would consider that in. Esp index at this point when you look at our rating system a seventy three percent of the s. and p. five hundred rate a one or two twenty seven percent of the s. and p. five hundred are neutral no company in the s. and p. Five hundred have an overall second boat rating of four or five so no company is conservative. So every seventy three percent of the s. and p. five hundred liberal that my mind makes that index a. e. s. g. index are securities ninety five percent of the companies in our securities rate three rate neutral. So this an extraordinary things. So if that's true that snp. And of course. I i trust you implicitly. This is sort of the espn perspective is now the norm. And you need more. Go out of your way to avoid it rather than go out your way to find it if you know what i mean. It's will here's here's the real issue is now. The people organizations companies are banding together. And i gave this example to somebody yesterday You know what they are making the point that. Es g is good for the company. It's good for society. A shareholder doesn't like what a company is doing. It can divaesque right if you own j. p. morgan and you don't like what j. p. morgan is doing sell it and what i told these people is people. Don't understand what j. p. morgan is doing. They don't understand the cost associated with what g. p. morgan is doing. I think a perfect example are some recent headlines. So jp morgan announced a thirty billion dollar initiative for diversity and inclusion. So they're gonna loan more money in terms of mortgages small business loans you name it To really further racial justice but there is no mention in any of the disclosures about. What are the what's the underwriting criteria right what segments of the market are they targeting What are the loss ratios that they're expecting. So investors can't make a decision in also the way p. morgan in fifth At the top ten banks all have similar programs at this point. There's no mention of the costs number one number. Do what these banks are doing now is. They're they're banding together. And another great example is some recent headlines where these banks got together and they all joined the partnership for carbon financial accounting. Yet sounds sounds great right. We're going to reduce our carbon footprint When you read the fine print what they've done is they've joined an organization a hundred and ten of the largest banks in the world are now members and what they're doing is they are reporting the carbon footprint of their customers so a bank has a hundred billion dollar portfolio. Here's the carbon footprint of our customers. The ones that have a high carbon footprint or footprint that these banks or organizations don't like raise the loan pricing on them and ultimately they kick them out of the bank. Now you're you own one of these companies and you get kicked out of the bank. Jp morgan throws you out you immediately. Say fine. I'll go to one of the other. Forty five hundred banks out there. I'll go to a smaller. Mid sized bank will. These big banks aren't doing that to lose business right what they're doing is they're lobbying congress right now and saying. Hey we are doing this voluntarily. We've created this. Es g network. We're doing it for the good of society in these. These companies that are not doing well are going to these money grubbing smaller banks. You have to regulate them. So what is being done voluntarily. At the large corporate level will.

They made seeing on some of these streams he really lost his stuff in Some of those really got nasty but He sees got into what with a couple of guys and much like Different situation with the ex president using twitter to promote yourself can often be very good so he got this match with poke and and moves on and getting a lot of publicity and big money events by putting stuff online and Now this latest thing is Tie in with brandon cantu who is I don't know. I wouldn't call him one of the honorable guys in the sport but He's He's a guy that has had some back and forth with nick ron over the years and he trashed the ground online when he talked about his head. Play against helmuth. And that sort of thing so they went back and forth on a few things and in daniel brought up some of his past indiscretions as far as not paying people back and that sort of thing and So that's the thing. I just wasn't paying people back. Yeah he said some problems in the past and he explained it away by saying You know he said. I didn't scam rob anybody but i got in over my head a few years ago when i was first starting to play so You know if you wanna call that You know evil. I guess you can. But meanwhile to pay back your debt if you pay back your desk. It's good with me as though that's the problem is i don't think he's paid. These people back in ground called him. Basically a deadbeat sith. Guess what if he walked like the dot com quacks like it must be a doctor. You know I don't know how long ago he's saying when he first started to. We're talking years and years later. Eight years ago says cantate years ago had some success. Yeah he didn't have yes but east a says he borrowed above his means as a high stakes player. And nick fired back and said you borrowing money from anyone to play. Poker is akin to theft. Because you've never had a shot to hold onto any money. So you know he was. He was throwing rocks. What what's that saying about living in glass houses and throwing rocks. You wanna take daniel or anybody. I mean as far as i know daniel reputation at least publicly has never been tarnished. Right right so i won't say that not not as far as You know honorable Repaying debt since you know not pulling things against the rules but you know maybe some of the other things he said and done have Rub people the wrong way. You know when. I've seen it the rubbing. The wrong way is usually people who who might need that rubbing the wrong way you know but again Those those are just my opinions. That's all The other news on head players that Doug poku mentioned is now challenged helm youth to a match and cantu said i will play daniel grant head to head for his entire net worth so a lot of talk out there and a lot of come flapping but ryan who said he'd play for randy brand and kanthi said he would play around for his net worth. I guess he's got another idiot. Backer then i if you wanna believe in was comments about him you know now with social media nobody has to go face to face with anybody for the most part so it makes people very very Courageous just like these idiots through bottled And spit on basketball professional athletes. And they'd coward. They'd cower i and get into the field position if they encountered these people on the street ever have the nerve or the or as they say in spanish cornish to say those things to him so yeah. The other news came out. That i thought was very interesting. Thought it would just mentioned it. Real quick is You know we've seen professional athletes play in poker and we know now that tony parker the former point guard for the san antonio spurs as qualified to play in the world series of poker main event. He took down a charity tournament back back in cherry tournament back in january and won a seat to the ten thousand dollar buying main event so that should be very interesting. Yes is very nice to just win it like that. Because i'm sure tony would have had no problem working up the ten thousand dollars. If he really wanted to play it now he was married to even longoria and one time. I don't believe he's still is tall guy. she's she's with somebody else. They got divorced rather quickly majnun anyway. That's some of the latest news. No more news. Out of the seminal compact except to say that The governor did sign it last week and that will lead to the next step. You mentioned the department of interior. Not really rejecting anything in the past. So that's kind of a rubber stamp but there's lots of legal challenges and i think As far as This note casinos dot org group.

"It is possible this team this franchise is not afraid to make big, surprising moves like to Argel on being fired after a three game losing streak. That the Knights were up 31 in this syriza. This is the team that a lot of people believe a lot of fans believe is the team that can win the Stanley Cup finals. If the Knights lose this seriously, the Minnesota wild has it crossed your mind at all that there is a possibility that Pete the Borg, it's let go. I don't think so. I don't think so. You know when you've already made a coaching change, um, you know, in the organization's young history to make another one is a reaction to losing one Syriza. I'm not sure that that Z the way the organization thinks again. They did have the most wins and hockey this year and sometimes you run into a good opponent and things don't go your way. Not that the Golden Knights would use it as an excuse, but they're leading goal scorer has not been available for this series. Max Patch ready, So I think that pizza boy I think is actually done a very, very good job with this group. Has pushed a lot of the right buttons, so I would say No. When George Gillett was let go, it was not in. You know, it was not in response to losing a particular syriza. It was a variety of other Disagreements or approached from how the management of the Golden Knights coaching staff of the time We're looking at it corrected, and I agree with that assessment. All right. So last question to you, Dan, I'm not asking you for prediction. I'm not putting you in that spot. But I will ask you this, though. Who do you think is the key to the game? And who do you think is the guy that can make the difference for the Vegas Golden Knights? Tonight. Now, obviously, I say, Marc Andre Fleury. I'm speaking a Viasa. He's there. I do believe that the Knights are resilient group and they'll get it done tonight, but Nemea guy, or maybe a few players that you think could be the difference site and we could be talking about them tomorrow as the star of the game that got the night's over the top. Well, the first one that comes to mind would be Alec Martinez. Sometimes my gut instinct as to who I think could have an important game leads me to that player to choose for pre game interview. So that goes Alec. For that the interview today might lead you towards something with me. He's the guy who scored the most recent goal for the power play goal in Game five. I mean, he's been very good on the power play in the Syriza, and he has the most blocked shots of anybody in the regular season or the postseason. Gary Lawless said it on our broadcast that he might not have an A or a C honest weather, but he should have a W for warrior and the fight with Matt Dumba the other day, just a second. That was awesome here and all that. So he's one player who comes to mind. Of course, he's 12 cops, amenities played 90. Stanley Cup playoff games on Don't forget about Alex. The Trans Hello? Who's tonight? Bling is 99 on and then you know, it's you can't help but wonder you can't help but wonder as Max Patch ready is miss now 10 games. You know, I said it going into the series. Could there be a Willis Reed moment That's ready in the Golden Knight. I don't know He was not on the ice with the team for the optional morning skate today, so that could be a pipe dream. But it's hard not to think about what Max has been trying to deal with and trying to go through a boy. It would just be so hard to watch your team go through all of this and not be able to contribute in some way so Again. It was when Willis Reed joined the next 1970. You know, it was he hit the first basket and really didn't play afterwards was the emotional boost. I love it that you're I love it that you're a New York guy. You brought that up because I remember I used to watch the footage that what Willis Reed came out and msg and the crowd just went crazy. Uh, you know, Yeah. I love it, Marv. Yes. Why does it always sound like Marv is on the toilet when he spoke, But anyway, that's another story. Yeah, Anyway, anyway, that That was more Sean Connery than Marv Albert. Just mix of the hybrid was interested it would be. It would be a pretty interesting point while taking Danielle, if that's already somehow and you're right, it could be a piper in but you never know. I mean, if he's out there tonight, I think that would be that would just give that team. I think that extra boost even if he's only 80% just to see him out there in the uniforms skating again. I think that would be a huge boost. Dan, You're always so gracious with your time. We always appreciate it when you join us on the show. It's gonna be a fun one tonight, my man, so hopefully next week. Hopefully we can Get you on the show will be talking about this series against the Colorado Avalanche.

"Be full of energy and they're gonna be pretty loud, So let's make the most of it. I like that attitude. That's the only attitude you could have. If you're gonna be on the ice tomorrow. I agree with that attitude, but, you know, Thies comments that you know Pete the board and I understand why divorce saying what he's saying, but well, we, You know, we put ourselves in a good spot. We'll know you didn't No, You didn't. Listen. Yes, you were rewarded with home ice because of your play during the regular season. I get that That's a good thing. This is not a good situation. You were up 31 at home in a kill shot situation and you let them beat you on your home ice. You went back to their eyes You lost and now you're just now you're in the most high pressure situation you could possibly be in. You have You have management and ownership that is not afraid to make big moves, Whether it's coaching staff, whether it's star players, whether it's goalies Pete, Pete, the board This is this could very well dictate the future for for Pete to bore on the Vegas Golden Knights, Michael because this this team is the team that this is the team. That could win the Stanley Cup finals. In my opinion, I don't think that a team can get any better than this moving forward. Yeah, I've gotten off that train. I don't feel that way anymore. Not if Max Patch ready isn't out there. And there's some speculation that Max patch already who was by the way, they're their best score could play in Game seven. But I don't like putting him out there in a Game seven even if he's 80% Hey. Hasn't been out there in a while, but she was desperation. He's clearly not 100%. You're not gonna get 100% out of him. I think at this point you need to sit him out. If he wasn't healthy enough to play in Game six. He certainly certainly shouldn't be playing a game seven. Michael. Yeah, well, you can't assume that game seven is gonna be any less intense than Game six and be right to be. I think it'll be the most intense hockey game that Vegas fans have ever seen in person is going to be inside. Yesterday's game was extremely physical. I have to give listen. Let's give credit where credit is due. Have to give the Minnesota wild a ton of credit. First of all, I told you for the last couple weeks, and we've had Daniel Grant Huan, who's a vjK Super fan, and he said he's echoed what I've said This is a very resilient hockey team. They're very, very good. They're very physical. They're not afraid of the Knights. They come at him. I mean, there was a hit yesterday on sack White Cloud and the glass broke. Or got dislodged. I mean, but those were the type of hits that we saw yesterday. Both teams physical. Minnesota played their best 60 minute hockey game yesterday. Why? Well, first of all, They weren't out shot by 20 Year. 30 shots number one, but number two. More importantly, They did not give up a lot of easy, easy opportunities for the nights either. I mean, I can't even recall situation where the Knights had, you know, a couple easy opportunities within a 10 minute stretch. Minnesota's very good at cutting off the angles. They're very good on the four check. They win those battles in the neutral zone on they don't do anything flashy. They just played good sound hockey. They dump the puck in deep when they need to. And they know that their opportunities they're going to come if they played the top of hockey they're capable of playing. I thought they played a very, very not not to say the Knights were destroyed, but they were not. The Knights played a pretty good game as well. The brakes didn't go their way and sometimes in the NHL playoffs, that's all it takes One break here. There. Guy offside by an inch. That's why you don't want to play a game seven, especially when you're the team. That's the overwhelming favorite to win in the Syriza and maybe to get to the Stanley Cup finals. You don't want a game seven. I don't care how loud the fans are tomorrow night. Listen, if it's really loud in there, which it will be, that's great. It could only help the nights but you know Minnesota's only allowed 4 5000 people in the arena. Minnesota got the job done yesterday and I said, I didn't think Minnesota could lose three games in a row at home and they didn't They got it done last night, So let's give credit where credit is due. Minnesota is really good, and they're only they're very young, too. They have a good coach. They have a good system in place. They're going to get better. I just feel like and by the way, I haven't even mentioned Talbot's name. Yet. Talbot was fantastic yesterday. He made some crucial saves was a little fortunate. There were a couple saves he made where he was clearly strain that he didn't see the puck and then it's just, you know, shot it right in his chest. All I know is that I'm very excited to talk to Daniel Verona. Well tell, But, um Talbot was very, very good yesterday, and, um, we have to give credit to him as well. You could make the argument that this was the biggest game of his career. You're facing elimination in Game six. At home. You put up a bagel. Knights put up a couple bagels, three bagels, no scores. Talbot was very, very good. He also have to give so much respect for these guys that are diving, and this is the best team in the league as far as blocking shots. I mean, they put their body on the line and block shots. And by the way, have you ever been hit with a hockey puck before? I don't care where you're hit? It's gonna hurt. But, boy, these guys are so good at just a diving on the ice and blocking shots. Um So look..
"daniel grant" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"Played, you know, literally just a perfect He was a plus. I agree with you, Fleury. I mean, you know, Minnesota probably could have won that game easily by three or four goals. Fleury was fantastic. All right now, let's move on to the pink elephant in the room. So to speak, who is in net tonight? Nobody seems to know. Daniel Grant, I'll ask you. Is it gonna be letter or is it gonna be Florrick? So here's the thing I just said That flurry played a perfect game, right, But for me all season you've gone with the rotation. Right. You have two All Star Super Star goalie That's see that's the asset here. They can both play arrested. You spent a lot of money to be able to do this. So for me, it makes all the sense in the world to continue the rotation. Right. There's enough. Both players have done nothing to lose their job like Painter's numbers are fantastic flurries. Obviously, this whole year been great. So for me, I keep the rotation. I hear I heard what you said. And I do agree. You know, this is somewhat of a must win, although it is quite early to say something like that. It's very, very important game. Having said that, I still think It should be rotation. Will the board do that? I doubt it. I think he's probably gonna go with Fleury again. But we shall see. Okay, So let's just say hypothetically that we go with Robin Lerner. Let's uh because I don't know. I don't know. Let's just say hypothetically. Now I know we you and I, Daniel, we usually don't disagree on many things. I think we disagree a little bit on this which is fine, which is cool. We love having you on and having these discussions, but hypothetically speaking This is just my personal opinion. If Robin Lehner was in debt in Game one, I don't think it's a one goal game. That's number one number two. If Robin Letter does hypothetically start today, and he has a bad performance. Who do you blame? If he has a bad performance. It's on him. Of course, obviously nothing on pizza bar. Nothing on Pete Divorce decision? No, because I think it's the correct decision. I really do like I said, I mean, you know the whole ad. The whole reason you have the William Jennings candle is because you did rotate and you keep them fresh. And here's the thing, right. We're not just trying to win this series. We're trying to win the Stanley Cup, right. So to do that. I think having two All Star goalie be well rested throughout. He's an asset. No other team in the league can have right. You know, you look at the team like Tampa Bay that's left. You're gonna play every damn game. You know, and that'll take it all after a while. You know, Four people don't realize that you've never played goal. And I in ice hockey. It's exhausting you you could lose 5 £10 After again. It should be a gold dinner. I should be a gold. Yeah. Make it through the whole game. You know, I I really believe that also, I think I really do believe Because this is all the drama that was created last year, The board completely blew. It completely blew it by sitting. He made one of the dumbest decisions a coach could make. I couldn't I couldn't. I couldn't fathom having a back to back in Game six and seven, right and putting Lehner and Game six and in Game seven, when you got Fleury sitting on the bench like a huge the base of the team, the clear play that even if you thought later was your number one Put Florian Game six..
Trump backs 'red flag' gun laws
"Going on the president came out and is in favor of the red flag laws in which a police officer or a family member in the house can go to the police and they will take away a gun from the person who is in red flag and then the other issue is expanded background checks and what you're not going to be hearing is the ban on assault weapons that is not gonna be in the conversation the limiting the number of magazines or the capacity of a magazine your I can hear much about that but you know we're but for those of us that are in favor of gun control you know where I see it now had so many conversations screaming conversations with people which I love to do that's what I do for a living but there is something else that you've been hearing and a word that out or couple words that have come up time and time again and that is lone wolf in already how we've been hearing that domestic terrorism is actually a greater threat then foreign terrorism all tied up Islam is crazy are fundamentalist Islamists it's the master terrorism and it's not domestic terrorism based on Islamic philosophy as you have we as we have seen in the past where you have young men the radicalized in terms of it Islam now this is a whole different animal this is domestic terrorism based on Julie white supremacy and there is a history of this our country is rife with white supremacy and I'm gonna talk about that in a minute but what I wanna do is re visit the lone wolf issue there is no such thing as a lone wolf maybe the actual shooting but if you look at the vast majority of these lone wolves who ought other than the Islamic terrorists a radicalized a young man they all follow the same path anti immigrant anti semitic anti minority white supremacists who believe that America should primarily be white and we don't want to are those people according to them that are a different color a different philosophy different ill cut want to live in the United States we just don't want those folks and does certainly the president's smacks of that he if he is not a firm believer in that he is certainly on the edges in his statements and is being called an out and out racist I don't know if I would go that far but I would certainly say he encourages it in his language about Mexican is language about Muslims are his language about immigrants I mean that certainly smells like someone who wants to keep America white and pure now again I am not accusing him of being there but I certainly am accusing him of creating a climate of their X. fostering this philosophy and there's no question in my mind the white supremacists have gone crazy I mean the incidence of white supremacy on the internet has exploded over the last few years since our president trump declared his candidacy and so all right V. el Paso incident particularly through attention to this problem of long will shooters and should they be viewed as isolated act worse sick people in the words of White House said chief of staff Mick Mulvaney are more as saw I think is a legitimate view part of a much larger ideologically driven movement hi Daniel grant who wrote the book the guard gate history of anti immigrant bigotry United States said these are not single shooters these are a mob that with high pyre powered rifles people feel they're part of something bigger and they don't get together in the street with porches like Frankenstein right you have all the torches in the pitch forks of your marching up to the castle you know there are Bob is the internet that's where they congregate and to the internet as I've said this is far more dangerous and for easier for these people to get together and they do they share philosophy they share hatred they talk about weapon read they're the ones that advocate keeping America your they're scared to death of immigration why because it interferes with their idea of America they believe that their jobs are being taken over by immigrants they believe that our country is moving away from its history effectively white Protestant our in anti immigrant which I'm gonna share with you in a moment the history of bigotry in this country that goes way way back and so there is the lone wolf wolf already part of the mob and all they do this is the guy who has the torch in front of the mob who actually ignites the building on fire so they are part of this group of people this community and they really feel there are there and they're doing something bigger than themselves I have talked to many service members who believe in this is something that's taught in the military and this is why you have are people who so many people feel this way the marines say this all the time you become a you become something bigger than just yourself you are moving towards an idea this is why you are here the idea of democracy the idea of freedom well there that is exactly the same feeling with that they have except their idea of freedom is no immigrants no Jews no Muslims no Catholics from any of them certainly no Mexican specifically although them go toward central Americans particularly yet it's still Mexicans they haven't quite moved over in that regard all right so are coming back let's talk a little bit about said the bigotry the United States we are a country that has done a superb job of being a nation of bigots and the history I've gotten better damn right we've gotten better much better but it's it's a horrible chapter horrible chapters in the history of this country and I want to connect
