"Hopefully, we have Maria, but sometimes she's in a war zone. Yeah, no, it doesn't sound well, first of all, your microphone's off. Okay, thank you. And second of all, we don't have Maria. Now she is in the capitol, and it is fortress city. So. I don't think that we have any kind of war zone issues, but we do have your typical global telecommunications problems. A producer Eric Mueller says we got her back. Maria, you have been after I think a 17 hour train ride reporting live from the capital of Ukraine Kyiv. And Paul was wondering, you know, the people that you talk to on the train, the people that you talk to in the streets. What's their feeling one year in? Yes, and listen, I have to apologize, because I know the lines are dropping, but really this is also part of it. Is a reality of it. And we're not even using a real phone here pretty much for security, essentially. I think to me what is just incredible of the story is you get on this train from Poland. And then you're making your way to Ukraine. And then at one point, I catch myself thinking, wow, it's 1 a.m. in the morning, this train is full. You know, you're in this little carriage with four other people. And then it just hits you, you know, we're all women here. And then at that point, you ask, why are you going there to this women? And then what's your situation? And then they tell you, well, I mean, they're going to see a relative where I'm going back to my husband or I have to come to Poland because there is no Visa process in Ukraine. And that's when it really hits you. The men can not leave. It's a women that are going in and out to their country. A lot of these husbands are fighting or they expect that they will be called to some extent to fight. This year, particularly in the spring and then you get to Ukraine and the reality hit you. You see the first man actually that you interact for many hours are all dressed in military gear. They ask for your papers, your passports, they let you in and then of course from that point on, you start to see the scenery as you enter key. We all know that the massacre that happened there, then you go into a bean, which is just outside and there was active fighting there. And that's when you really realize the Russians were just so close to Keith and you see the airport so they had to blow up. Remember the initial plan from the Russians was to take hold of the airport and helicopter people from Belarus into Ukraine. And that's a reality of the war. I think yesterday for us on top of the reality check, you see it firsthand. And you're on this train and the train next to you. It's ready to send the weapons. And this is a train that's really next to you as you're making your way into Ukraine for 17 hours. The airspace obviously shut now for a year because of the mental strikes. I think for today, we heard already from president zelensky, who was given our medals in the morning to the army. Again, repeating the reason why we are standing a year later is because of our army and they have stayed in blood. So that I'm here, so landscape here is the press that we're all here reporting this because of the huge fight that the army has put up with a lot of weapons from the west. Sure, but in reality, it's the soldiers that are dying there. And the one thing that also really caught my eye is when you look at Ukrainian TV, the way they present this is not the one year mark. It's not the one year anniversary. Would they say is one year now closer to victory? All right, Maria. Reporting live from Kyiv. I know you spoke with the mayor this morning, Vitaly Klitschko, so I want to talk to you about that later if we can get you back on the program. And then Kevin brand, he is defense policy Ansel Bloomberg intelligence. We're

"We'd love to play it on the show. The telephone number is 424-666-8442. Stick around, there's more show coming up. Well, Frank, Dan. You know, as our patrons know, because we've been talking about movies in the Franken Dan diary lately. You attended film school I was a good that did. Right? I'm an actor, so I've been in a few films. There's one thing, now neither of us have been offered our own shows or whatever. Hollywood has not come knocking at our door. Yet, yes. I assume it'll happen at some point. Of course. Yeah. So much talent. Untapped talent Dan. But there is one thing that happens every single time someone's offered a real show. Oh. I think everyone should be aware of. So thank God we have Alex Jones. To expose this to everyone. Okay. And I promise you guys, he's not lying. There's no way he would be lying about this. So yeah, I'll just let you guys hear it. I've been a Christian so I was young, morning young when I was younger, but men were only had a lot of problems. I'm not perfect. But I got to tell you, it happened to Mark dice, it happened to me. I have a bunch of other people I talked to before you're offered a national TV show. Before you're offered a major record deal, they get in a room and they say, listen, we want you to reject Jesus Christ and pledge yourself to Lucifer. And it was an off record meeting with me when it happened. It happened twice. Mark dies tells the story because it wasn't off the record meeting was with the largest, the largest reality TV show production company out there. And it happened to Mark nice when he told me about it. I believe it was happening to me. It's happened to Eric Mueller, man count Mueller. It's happened to a bunch of other people I know. And you're sitting there in a meeting, you want to high rise building around the office table. And you're like, are you kidding me? No, we're very serious. And we need you to reject Christ and pledge yourself to Lucifer. And I tell viewers that story 20 years ago and they go, that's insane. No, that really happened. Well, there you go. Yes, I'm sure Alex jumps. When did that happen? Was that right after he was in linklater's movie? Waking life, you know that, right? That he's in waking life? No, really? Yeah, he's one of the characters. He has a little segment there where he's like screaming and bloviating. For like a couple minutes. But linklater put a minute because he was just this lunatic that was on late night TV or whatnot in this area. And he was just like, this guy's funny. That's amazing. So it's probably around that time. Somebody saw waking life and was like, that guy needs his own show, but we need him to reject Jesus. Clearly. Yeah. Look, we're willing to offer you the show. It's just a matter of, can you pledge your life to Lucifer? Which anyone who's a familiar at all with the work of Alex Jones knows he definitely pledged his life to Lucifer. Maybe it's maybe that's why he didn't get the major TV shows because it was too late. Lucifer already had him. And then what's your bargaining chip? You got nothing. I already gave up your soul. Good lord. It's just you're just lying. It's just so dumb. Dumb thing, but man, they believe. That's the crazy part. Is that he lies, he knows he's lying. Right. Yeah. He knows why he's lying. He is a bit of a lunatic. I think he just sort of says, that's exactly it. He just says what he wants, whatever comes to mind. It's just not true. Yeah. At the end of the day, though, he knows it, of course. But I think I tend to think that with guys like him and I would put Trump in the same category. If it comes out of their mouth, I think their brain just inherently believes it. Starts to believe it. No, just instantly. If it serves them at all, if it serves their turn enough to say it, they just accept it as truth. If I said it, it must be true. Boy. What a life. Yeah. I wish I had that. That's just confidence in what I said. Right? Yeah. Yeah, all right. All right, well, there you go. We had some folks right into us. So I'll start with Ricardo. You'll recall, Frank that we were talking last week about various holidays, various religious holidays. And we mentioned that nobody cares about epiphany. I think I said that nobody cares about epiphany. Ricardo begs to differ. He says, hey, Frank and Dan, just FYI, Latino people do really care about epiphany. But as you assumed, it is because we have awesome traditions that are only tangentially associated with religion. On epiphany or the feast of the Magi AKA Los Reyes. Mexican families by Mexican king cake. Similar to the king cakes eaten during Mardi Gras. Yeah, and have it with Mexican hot chocolate. Oh. The king cake has three little plastic baby jesuses. How many baby Jesus are there? Why are there three? There should only be one baby Jesus. There was only one baby Jesus. But you got to be fair. You got to let more than one kid win, right? Yeah, because then you never know like a prize. If an adult gets it, then it's like, oh, fuck, none of the kids got ah, that sucks. Anyway, yes, so Ricardo says whoever finds a baby is supposed to make tamales for candelaria day for a second. Yeah, I like that tradition. Yeah, but it's not a prize. It's just work that you have to do. Yeah, but at the end of it, you get tamales. Right, well, so. Ricardo goes on to say, unfortunately, by February, people are definitely all done with the holidays, so in four decades, I have never gotten a damn tamal on that day. Boo. Yeah. Give me my tamales. Also kids wake up on epiphany to find the mag I have left them candy and small presents. Well, that's cute. Really? Yeah. Okay. I are the same as Easter Bunny. I feel like I

"That sock Jen, GM has map match and expecting second quarter sales and profit to take a hit because of supply chain problems, they do say they can make up for delayed production later this year, reaffirming the full year guidance. Once again, Dow, up 63, has in B 5 out of 12, the NASDAQ 56 points higher. We check the markets for you every 15 minutes during the training day right here on Bloomberg radio on John Tucker. That is your Bloomberg business flash, man Paul. All right, John Tucker. John Tucker, he's gonna be at the Jersey Shore this week and I can absolutely guarantee it. He lives on the he's just gonna stroll down there and get his beverage of choice as Tom Keene would like to say and enjoy his July 4th. I'm sure about that. All right, markets here. A little bit of a lift to the market. I'm not gonna make too much about it. Let's just bring in a professional Riddick at Gupta. A Brit. Yes. By the way, who has no idea what forth like for the Brits. Yes. What do you do? It's still a celebration. You're glad to be rid of us, right? We didn't do anything for the 4th of July in the UK. We just pretended it and didn't happen. All right, ready to go. What are you looking at here? Okay, well, I think I want to focus in on the bond market. I mean, I know John taco was talking about it. That seems when we're seeing the biggest moves here with those yields down and if you look at that ten year now 19 basis points, part of this could just be it's like thin liquidity. We are going into that long holiday weekend, so that's a bit more of a risk off tone. But again, this is a clearly the market is concerned about recessions, but I do think that it's interesting that there is always talk about, you know, the fed eventually, you know, pairing back some of the rate moves higher because of slower growth. But the fed is not given any indication that that would be the case. They said they're very much committed to toning down inflation. And I'm also looking at the dollar because you're seeing yields lower, but the dollar is still getting a bid so that is still that safe haven and I think that speaks to how much of a global story this is. Maybe the U.S. still seems like safe relative to other parts of the world. There is an alternative. There is no alternative to the dollar. No, there is maybe this is the alternative. That's what I'm saying. What are you hearing from strategies for market participants about the second half? Obviously the first half was disappointing if you were long stocks or bonds. Is the second half going to be more the same because I saw a tweet from Michael Burry of the big short fame saying, that was, that was valuation compression. And this coming earnings season, you're gonna see margin compression. And he thinks we're only halfway through the decline. Yes. That's what I think is interesting as well as the earnings thus far they hadn't been re rated lower, but now you are having more people warning about like you said, the margins coming under pressure because we're seeing a lot of consumer sentiment falling and seeing a lot with the retailers, particularly even airlines or all of this that the demand could come in slower and I mean we haven't seen with micron now, I think that's interesting that earnings story coming out that they're warning about demand being lower. Before that they were all talking about the or last year, these stocks were rallying on the supply shortage and now they're concerned about demand. So we were talking about a shortage and now even micron is saying that they are trying to make sure that they don't have an industry glut. So that's quite a turnaround as well. How do we get an industry? There's no glut. There's not enough chips. I can tell you personally. I know. So that's good. What it would just saying. And did you just see from GM as well? They were saying that that's like an opposite side of the story. They're saying they're not, they've got up what is it? 95,000 vehicles in inventory because more chips are surprised needed. Including my new ZR2 and glacier blue, that's right. I can't wait to have I'm so excited about this truck. I think it's, of course, 'cause I chose it. I think it's one of the best choices out there, but I don't think you're gonna get it. Some of my forum Friends, some of the insiders that I hang with on the Internet say, when these kind of things happen, it could take until the end of 22, the beginning of 23 before I get it. Wow. And I have no car. I'll repeat. And I'll repeat that match. He's like a player in the auto industry. He's got CEOs on speed dial and he can't get his trucks. What does that mean for the rest of us? By the way, unrelated. Well, kind of. Michael burries, first of all, Christian Bale does a great job of playing him in the big short. And it's my favorite character, because he also plays the drums, listen to Metallica. He's so cool. But also a weirdo, which I love. His Twitter handle is Cassandra BC. Do you guys know who Cassandra was? No, I don't think I want to. I'm guessing. No, no, Cassandra was like a Trojan goddess, like a princess in mythology who was blessed by the gods with the ability to see the future, but also cursed because no one would listen to her. Oh. That's interesting. She was constantly telling everybody about their demise about the catastrophes ahead about the disasters to come. And no one listened to her. So they couldn't avoid them. You probably one of the few people who Googled that. Maybe you just knew it. No, no, because my grandmother used to call my mom a Cassandra. All right, we got some Miller family lore there. Ready to go Gupta. Thanks so much for joining us markets reporter rittika Gupta. Matt, you're a Ohio State university. They're getting some more company in the business. Ohio State university. And the Big Ten is gonna be what? The big 16? I don't know. How many teams does that where's Eric? Dude, how many teams does that make? If UCLA and USC joined the Big Ten, there's already at least 12. Okay. 14. Our producer Eric Mueller says, he's our sports, he's our sports expert as well. He says they could go as high as 18, but this makes 14. So what I'm reading is going to be like two super conferences, the Big Ten and the SEC and everybody else is just kind of left to kind of deal. Should we call the gigantic ten now? Yeah, exactly. So we'll see. Crazy stuff in the world of sports and guess what kids, it's all about the money. And that's kind of where the TV money is going to some of these big things. All right, right now let's head down to Washington, D.C.. World a national news with Nathan Hager. Paul Sweeney

Street's biggest banks That's according to the prosecutors that press conference is ongoing of course What do you make of it all Well something interesting that guy Johnson of Bloomberg television asked a little earlier to me is do the banks look bad here And there's something interesting in this indictment and it's this idea that Bill hwang misled the banks That is a good defense for the banks because it's not that they had all the information that they needed It's how many misleading statements did archegos make to the banks as well Finally got that book name for you pretty And that's when genius failed It's a good one Roger loewenstein the book about long-term capital management The learnings there have so much to do with learnings here And by the way this comes ahead of the fed really

the party that's okay Eric Mueller our DJ slash producer slash bouncer will let you in Don't worry the interactive broker studio that's where we are bringing you live headlines live conversation live aba music for those who are interested We are also interested in what the economics are of the situation You remember there's a lot of issues here We're not just talking about decelerating growth We're also talking about COVID lockdowns in China a war in Ukraine There's a lot to digest on not necessarily the markets along the what's going on in the real economy What is the average American dealing with here to break it all down Let's bring in Anna Wong chief U.S. economist for Bloomberg economics Anna thank you so much for joining us Where do we go from here in terms of the strength of the American consumer I felt like the narrative really the summer of 2021 so about maybe 6 9 months ago was this is when the effects of fiscal stimulus is going to wear off This is when you're going to see that deceleration in consumer spending Are we there yet I don't think we are there yet So American household balance sheet is at a 40 year low And even though it's true that some of those savings are being run down and the impact of those fiscal most checks would be wearing out It's still American households have the runway on the balance sheet to either continue to expand credit because the real interest rate in fact is still negative because interest rate is still below inflation And also that for the top 40 60% in terms of income those households still have a lot of excess savings And those are the ones who are pivoting toward more of the cases Consumer and restaurants going out to movie theaters So there's still a lot of consumption gas as you will in the U.S. economy You know I'm going to steal a line from critic because she said it a few times and it makes me laugh The China of it all What about the lockdowns that are happening that you see in China and then also kind of these renewed fears about COVID How might that start to throw things here in the U.S. off the track it's on Yeah so the biggest risk to the U.S. economy indeed is coming from a broad from both China and Europe China's lockdown has two effects on inflation On one hand it's very inflationary because of renewed supply chain bottlenecks But on the other hand China is a huge commodity demand nation in the whole world It accounts for over 50% of demand for a lot of commodities categories So for Chinese GDP growth to plunge like what we are seeing right now means that commodity prices ahead would be falling or at least there will be inflationary force on commodities to fall Whereas on the other side you know the lockdown would be inflationary So on that what is the impact on U.S. especially It depends on whether U.S. demand for good especially good produced by China is softening And we have been seeing signs in the end of February that U.S. demand of cars or and furnishing household furnishing apparel electronic stuff that China produced is being softening and part of that is related to the fact that demand is rotating from goods To services we have bought too much electronics over the last few years working from home Now we're going back to the office We have left me for that So that means that whatever inflationary shock coming from China's lockdown would produce a smaller pass through than the same degree of lockdown that we had seen last year So there's reasons to be optimistic slightly more optimistic about this round of supply chain shocks from China Well let's bring in the other major risk right The war in Ukraine here I believe we had some headlines come out this morning Germany ready to support the EU ban on Russian oil if it's gradual there's something that you heard the French finance minister Bruno le maire very vocal about a couple of weeks ago You also heard on the back of that JPMorgan calling for a $185 on oil and I was at Sarah week a month about a month ago essentially one of the largest energy conferences in the world We were talking about some of these oil ministers from around the world and they were looking at $200 oil $300 oil potentially on the table not their base case but potentially on the table What does that do to American GDP Yeah so if oil indeed surged to one a 5 200 then we'll be seeing CPI inflation headline of.

"First of all the Senate passed the covin stimulus bill now dead. Shorty one better colonoscopies more pleasant than going to Tom to sign up for a raise. Yeah, it is actually thank you Melissa Feldman for the five bucks. Very generous very generous. So well, so what we talking about? Yes, so, you know, this is the thing that irritates the crap out of me Lisa murkowski you piece of garbage in Alaska you ask to put an amendment in there to give like six hundred million to homeless children or whatever a homeless people then you still vote know come in. You know what between you and Susan Collins get out of our freaking Congress, please please get out get the book out. We are so sick of you guys both we gotta stick with our team why this is the stimulus Bill about the American people. This is not about you sticking a freaking team over country team over party. No, it's not. But everyone voted down partisan lines every single one. Because the Republicans they can never ever try and reach across the aisle. Don't don't even bother. Thank you Max 1959 month for the five bucks. And thank you Carlene Martin. Yeah, Joe manchin to says I know there's another piece of garbage Greg. Come on in here. I mean it is just unbelievable that here you're talking about a stimulus package that going to boost their economy. Most Economist have said so long and it's going to help the American people and yet not one Republican could vote. For it. I mean Greg, when does this bull crap end while the thing that's even crazier is this is a very popular bill as my friend Eric Mueller pointed out on press run. It still has 83% approval including among Republicans and every single person in the party voted it down. I mean the politics involved with that are really stupid like they hate us more than they want to do our votes. I mean, this is going to be a super popular thing. I'm already to get my calculator out to see how much money I'm getting here. This is exciting stuff. It's helpful. There's there's no way it's not going to help people in a very real substantial way. Yeah, so I'm sorry with someone good as gold. Thanks for the five bucks. Please. Tell Greg that I love when he drinks his fancy Martini our Narrative of always makes me me smile. He's so cute. Well, thank you. It's a Manhattan. It's not a it's not a martini with my hair is I was having technical difficulties all of a sudden I I plug the thing in it. I couldn't hear you. But I was freaking out I saw yeah, I saw you came into the room and then you and then you left. Yeah. So time take your time. But yeah, I'm having know it really is appalling. I don't know here. We have people who are in need of money. I mean, I'll be honest, you know, I you know, it's going to help me too. Yeah, so so I can't I can't believe that it all becomes political thousand now, they'll say well they drove down to some like Mitch McConnell said today which which I just Greg, I'm sorry, man. I can't stomach this guy from much long. I hear his cock. Contemplating if he's going to drop out. I hope he does. I'm so sick of this the Grim Reaper his self-proclaimed title because he's been an obstructionist since day one and now he's like the bill has a lot of part of radical leftist things and it know does it bring a masculine? Does it really? Look the whole the whole idea of what socialism is. They have these keywords that they like to throw around, you know Socialist Communist radical. Let's just this and that what this is is a way to help the economy stay on track. Like we're we were really really close and we may still be really close with people being evicted from their homes wage. We have the economy can conserve I've you know a recession or a slow. But once you have people being displaced in any numbers, it's very very difficult to come back from that and let's let's tell it like it is the Republican party wants Biden to fail. They want Biden to fail. They want this to fail. They want to look like a bad president. That's why that asshole Abbott's in in Texas is opening up the state there and the other guy in in in Mississippi State whatever his name is the Guy with the with the bad hairpiece in Mississippi. He's pro-life. He's super pro-life, but he wants everybody Mississippi to die. So he's doing this the only explanation that I can give you that they you know, they're hoping that this will make the numbers look bad because what is happening right now is what I sort of predicted would happen, which is once we have a functional federal government job, which we have now. We still have people that need to be put in place Merrick Garland etcetera, but the the the administrative side of the executive branch is now functional for the first time about four years and what do you know stuff's happening a couple of weeks ago Biden said, we're going to have vaccines for everybody by the end of July and I told my friends when he says the end of July or the summer whenever he said I'm like he really means May yes, and then he came and said Meg. Yes when he says the end of May he really means, you know, the beginning of May late April because he's not going to make a promise wage. That unless he's damn sure he can keep it. So what's going to happen here from the outside anybody in the swing thing is going to say okay Trump was in charge of this thing for a year, you know or whatever. It was just his watch. He was in charge wall coronavirus virus ravaged the country and you know a couple opportunity ample opportunity to stop it. He had ample opportunity to do this bill this covid-19 still he could have passed this whatever he wanted and they chose not to because they don't care. They just want people to die and now Biden comes in waves his wand wage all of a sudden we have the defense production act. We have ramping up vaccines..
