A highlight from 1410: Bitcoin Will Hit $10,000,000 Per Coin - Binance CEO CZ
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis. And also I'm going to be sharing with you a 48 ,700 Bitcoin price target, pre halving according to a top analyst. Also did you know it was exactly six years ago today, China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time and ever since the Bitcoin price action is up 600 % and the mining hash rate is back at all time highs. Also quitting Max Kaiser, Bukele has restored the human rights to 7 million Salvadorians that have been taken away by murderous runts, the British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story of the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele -nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice preach. Also in today's show, Mt. Gox repayments delayed yet again. Creditors are waiting on Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash and Yen payments until next year in 2024. We'll also be discussing, according to this latest report, Coinbase currently holds 5 % of the entire Bitcoin supply in existence. That's right. While Coinbase holds 25 billion in BTC, the exchange only owns around 200 million in Bitcoin and its wallets. We'll also be discussing the catalyst, which will catapult the Bitcoin price action. According to skybridge capitals, Anthony Scaramucci will also be discussing the latest with the Binance CEO CZ setting the record straight on $250 million loan claims. That's right. The US court had recently denied an inspection plea by the SEC. I'll be breaking down this latest FUD and speaking of CZ, the Binance CEO predicts the Bitcoin price will reach $10 million per coin. In fact, a couple of years back in an interview, he said, if all of the major institutions allocate 1 % Bitcoin, we're going to see 1000 X or more growth of the Bitcoin price. And if you run the math, 1000 times today's price action is 26 to $27 million per BTC. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo what's good crypto fam. This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at crypto news alerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts .net and welcome everyone just joining us. This is podcast episode number 1410. I'm your host JV and today is September 23rd, 2023. So welcome to another sat stacking Saturday. Let's kick it off with our market watch as we do here each and every day, seven days a week. We can see Bitcoin back in the green trading above 26 .6 and we also have ether back in the green trading at roughly $1 ,600. The market cap is sitting at 1 .06 trillion with roughly 17 billion in volume. In the past 24 hours, we've got Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and the ether dominance at 18 .2 % as Bitcoin continues outpacing Ethereum and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, we've got theta lead in the pack up 7 % trading just under 64 cents followed by rocket pool up 4 % trading at $21 .63, followed by chain link up 4 % trading at $7 .18 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, we have WeMix leading this pack up 15%. We have PLS up 8 .2 % and XRD up 11, I mean 7 .4 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 47, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 43 in fear, last week also a 43 and last month a 41 in fear. So there you have it. How many of you have been stacking M -Sats and taking advantage of the recent dip in dollar cost averaging? Let me know. And how many of you are anticipating Bitcoin price action to maybe dip a little further south before packing some new positions? Let me know how you feel with the current status. And also just quick reminder, we're almost at the end of September historically, September is the worst month out of the entire year for the Bitcoin price action, but it's always followed by up tober, which is historically one of the most bullish months for Bitcoin. So we only have another week until we get out of September. So we'll see how this is likely to play out. Let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Bitcoin failed to reclaim 27 ,000, though we came close. It stalled at 26 ,500 as of right now. Meanwhile, the altcoins are in no better shape with minor losses coming from most of the larger cap ones. With Chainlink, the only one with a notable price increase. So last week was expectedly less volatile, aside from the brief spike on Saturday that pushed Bitcoin then to the multi -day peak of 26 ,400. But after failing to continue upwards, Bitcoin retraced at 26 ,000 and spent the rest of the weekend there. Then Monday didn't start all that positively either, but finished the way. Bitcoin went on the offensive and soared above 27 ,000 for the first time in weeks, but then shortly dumped after. But the bulls kept the pressure on and pushed Bitcoin to a new 20 -day peak at 27 ,500 on Tuesday. The next few days were rather calm with Bitcoin maintaining 27 G's, even after the US Fed's decision to stop raising the interest rates. Yet Bitcoin's momentum disappeared by Friday as it fell to 26 ,400. It even tried to bounce off the end of the day, but failed and currently stands at 26 ,500. Its market cap is south of 520 billion, while its dominance over the alts still just inches shy of 49%. So there you have it. And as we mentioned a little earlier, the altcoins, a lot of them are also in the red with the exception of Chainlink, which seems to be outpacing the rest of the major alts. Now for a prediction from Titan of Crypto, here's what he shared on X. Bitcoin 48 ,700 before the halving rocket ship to the moon. You might want to bookmark this one. Fam, never in history the halving occurred without Bitcoin reaching the 78 .6 % Fibonacci retracement level. So first off, first cycle price reached this four months before the halving, and the second cycle it was two months before, and then on the third cycle it was 12 months before. The next halving is now roughly six months away. Bitcoin might reach the 78 .6 % Fibonacci level within this period as it currently lies at 48 ,700, but the million dollar question remains, will this time be different? So as we enter this fourth halving, let me know where you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to hit before we have liftoff. I mean, obviously that would be a bullish scenario setting us up for a perfect price discovery in 2024 post halving. So I cannot wait. I hope the analyst is right. And if you didn't know, it was exactly six years ago. China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time because guess what? You can't ban Bitcoin. You can try. Good luck with that. And ever since the price action on the King Crypto is up 600 % and the mining hash rate continues to hit all time highs. And as you know, hash rate is a good indicator for the strength of the network, meaning the market cap is just north of only $500 billion. And as Max points out here, referring to Bukele, he has restored the human rights of 7 million Salvadorans that have been taken away by murderous runts. The British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story, the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele Nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice. Massive shout out to Najib Bukele and the people of El Salvador. Which country do you feel is likely to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender next? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments below. I feel it's going to be another Latin American country. I'd say a great candidate for that is Argentina, which has hundreds of millions of people. We have Javier Malay, the pro presidential candidate. There is a 70 % chance plus that he is elected as the president. And we already know the likelihood he could make Bitcoin a legal tender, especially being orange -pilled by Max Keiser, who is the senior Bitcoin advisor for President Bukele. As Max has already announced, he can't wait to touch down in Buenos Aires to orange pill Javier Malay. Then we also have Mexico. We have people like Ricardo Salinas, the third richest man in Mexico, very pro Bitcoin, claiming Bitcoin has been his best investment ever because, again, Max orange -pilled him back in 2014. Then we have Brazil and so many other countries that make Bitcoin a potential to become legal tender. And we all know that's going to be a game changer. And that's just another catalyst on top of the Bitcoin halving scheduled in six months in 2024, plus the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. So can you say fireworks lays ahead? Let's go. Now let's discuss the latest more bullish news, meaning Mt. Gox is going to be delaying these payments, which means no crypto is going to be dumped onto the open market anytime soon, which again is good for the hodlers. Check it out. Now we got Nobuaki, the Mt. Gox trustee in charge of the funds owed to the exchange creditors, updated the public on September 21st, two days ago, according to the trustee, because of the lengthy discussions with specific payment providers, he could not make the October 31st deadline. That was the initial deadline, fam. And because of this reason, the repayments will start next year. And so they say, quitting him here. Therefore, with the permission of the Tokyo district court, the rehabilitation trustee changed the deadline of the base repayment, the early lump sum repayment and the intermediate repayment from October 31st, 2023 Japan time to October 31st, 2024 Japan time, respectively. By the letter of the Kobashi details, the Mt. Gox creditors waited nine years for payments. Good Lord. Currently, they're owed one hundred and forty one thousand six hundred and eighty six BTC plus one hundred and forty two thousand eight hundred and forty six Bitcoin cash and sixty nine is that billion yen. Good Lord. I'd love to know what that equates to in dollars anyways, though the delay has been extended. The creditors who have completed their claims might receive the payment by year's end, quoting them again. Rehabilitation creditors who have provided the necessary info to the rehabilitation trustee will see the payments made in a sequence as early as the end of this year, according to the letter. However, this schedule could change. Kobashi also said that due to the high volume of inquiries regarding the process, the rehabilitation team might not respond promptly. Well, that doesn't sound so promising, but I guess it's a good sign that most of this cash is not going to be dumped off any time soon, as there's a lot of FUD that's always circulating. The Mt. Gox, you know, sell off is going to crash the entire market. I think that is very unlikely and is nothing more than FUD. And again, we're gearing up for the most bullish sentiment in the four year cyclical cycle amongst us in twenty twenty four. So versus being in fear, I would be very optimistic about what's to come for the king crypto and the crypto market as a whole. But what are your thoughts, fam? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the largest crypto exchange in the United States. Clearly, it is Coinbase. The CEO is Brian Armstrong. But did you know, according to this latest report, they currently control and own over five percent of the Bitcoin in circulation. That's pretty hefty. And let's break this one down. And how many of you have used the Coinbase crypto exchange before? Let me know in the comments below. Here we go. Blockchain intelligence platform ARKAM recently identified the crypto exchange Coinbase holds almost one million Bitcoin in its wallets like, whoa, the coins are worth more than twenty five billion dollars at the current prices. Now, according to ARKAM, the exchanges holdings amount to almost five percent of all the existing Bitcoin. ARKAM said Coinbase holds a total of nine hundred forty seven thousand seven hundred and fifty five BTC. And at the moment, Bitcoin circulating supply is around nineteen million four hundred ninety three thousand five hundred thirty seven, according to coin info on CoinGecko. And as ARKAM shared here on X, ARKAM now identified twenty five billion of Bitcoin's Coinbase reserves with one million, approximately Bitcoin on chain. This makes Coinbase the largest Bitcoin entity in the world on ARKAM, with almost five percent of all the Bitcoin in existence, almost as much as Satoshi Nakamoto. Crazy, right? Furthermore, ARKAM noted that it has tagged and identified thirty six million Bitcoin deposits and holding addresses used by the exchange. And according to ARKAM, Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around ten thousand BTC. And based on the exchanges financial reports, the intelligence company believes that Coinbase has more Bitcoin than are yet labeled and could not be identified. And while Coinbase holds over twenty five billion worth of Bitcoin in its wallets, the exchange only owns around ten thousand of all the Bitcoin in which it holds, which is roughly two hundred million dollars, according to the recent data. Meanwhile, community members express varying reactions to the news about the amount of Bitcoin on the centralized exchange in which they hold. Some believe it's a sign to withdraw their Bitcoin from the exchanges, warning hodlers not to wait until the exchanges start to halt withdrawals. Others say that since there are legitimate concerns over cold wallets, there is no good way to store your assets. I'd like to chime in real quick. Obviously, if it's not your keys, it's not your coins. So while a custodian such as Coinbase can hold your crypto, you've got to also note that it's not yours. So if something were to happen, hypothetically, like we've seen with FTX and the collapse last year, then not your keys, not your coins, they don't belong to you at the end of the day. So you've got to start to weigh the risk reward with having a custodian such as Coinbase or a centralized exchange hold your coins versus taking the responsibility for yourself and learning how to self custody your own crypto and call storage such as with a Bitcoin cold wallet, such as a treasure. So I just wanted to point that out. There's no right or wrong way to hold your crypto. You've got to do what's in your best interest, of course. So, you know, I mean, just want to keep it real at the end of the day. So check it when it comes to Bitcoin ownership by companies, business intelligence for MicroStrategy still owns most Bitcoin. I believe it's over one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC, to be exact, worth over four billion dollars at the time of this recording, making them the largest publicly traded company to have Bitcoin on their balance sheet. Now, another major company that controls over six hundred thousand BTC is Grayscale in their GBTC product, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which they just recently had a lawsuit against the SEC with the plan to convert their trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF. So considering they already control the underlying asset in the sum of over six hundred thousand BTC makes them a pretty strong contender. Wouldn't you agree? Let me know your thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the Bitcoin price likely to catapult along with the altcoin to coin to SkyBridge Capital, Anthony Scaramucci. Let's break this down. Shout out to the Mooch, SkyBridge Capital founder Scaramucci is detailing how one catalyst could have a bullish impact on Bitcoin, as well as the alt. In an interview with the Wolf of Wall Street, Scott Melker Scaramucci says that a spot Bitcoin ETF could be approved in the first quarter of twenty twenty four, which seems to be a ninety five percent likelihood, according to top ETF analyst at Bloomberg, Eric Balchunes. So according to SkyBridge Capital founder, the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF and the Bitcoin halving, which is expected to occur in April of twenty twenty four, could combine to ignite a crypto bull market. No, it's not. It could combine. It will combine. Just saying. Quitting him here as Wall Street or products on Wall Street are sold, they are not bought. And so there is going to be tens of thousands, if not one hundred thousand plus people at these Wall Street firms selling these products to their traditional investors. So people that are in Bitcoin understand the finite supply of Bitcoin, right? We all know there's a finite limited supply, 21 million, and they understand the nature and the quality the Bitcoin has. This will push Bitcoin up. Of course, it will have a dramatically positive effect on the altcoin market because it will lead to more capital into digital properties so people can think whatever they want. They can think short term about the near term volatility of Bitcoin. But these macro positive factors are overwhelming. And according to Scaramucci, the potential approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF filed by giant asset managers such as BlackRock, who controls over 10 trillion in assets under management and Fidelity, that controls over four and a half trillion in assets under management, can see Bitcoin increasing its market cap by roughly 24 times from the current level. We'll send it. Let's go quoting the Mooch here. It is important that now the largest asset manager in the world who started out with some level of skepticism related to digital assets and Bitcoin is now willing to adopt Bitcoin. I mean, I guess they mean BlackRock is willing to adopt Bitcoin, but even more important than that, they're willing to explain to their clients. I think BlackRock now has 13 trillion dollars in assets under management. So for them, seven trillion for Fidelity. While these numbers are higher than I even imagine, while their clients need exposure to digital property like Bitcoin. And so we have a five hundred billion dollar plus market for Bitcoin. So you and I know gold is at 12 trillion ish, depending on where it's trading. But yes, 12 trillion. There is no reason why Bitcoin couldn't get gold. So there you have it. And to watch this video interview he did with Scott Melker entitled 37000 Bitcoin. Can it skyrocket 35 percent? Check the show notes below the video in the description. And I think we all could agree it's only a matter of time before Bitcoin returns to price discovery mode, virtually meaning entering new all time highs. My personal prediction is sometime in 2024, considering the two biggest catalysts, which we just covered, the Bitcoin halving and Bitcoin ETF approval, which we know is going to be a given, especially considering the SEC is not going to be able to push it back and push back that deadline any longer because, you know, they just they have been pushing it back now for 10 years while they continue to approve futures ETFs, which can allow them to spoof and manipulate the market, which is all by design. At the end of the day, there's not new under the sun and three things cannot be long hidden. The sun, the moon and the truth. But just saying. Anyways, fam, now let's discuss the ongoing fight against CZ, the finance CEO with this 250 million dollar loan. And then I'll be breaking down his 10 million dollar price prediction and in fact sharing a transcription of him claiming that Bitcoin can thousand X from the current price, which would ultimately mean not 10 million, but we're talking twenty six to twenty seven million dollars per coin. Let's break this down. So here we go. First, with the FUD, the Binance CEO, CZ Shangping Zhao had refuted a recent report alleging that he received the 250 million dollar loan from BAM Management, the company that serves as the holding entity for Binance US. Now, how many of you have used Binance US or Binance before as the exchange? Let me know, fam. The development comes amidst Binance's struggles with plunging trading volume as the world's largest crypto exchange faces mounting lawsuits and increased scrutiny, regulatory which seems to all be by design by the SEC and the regulators. Right. The report published by Decrypt September 19th drew its conclusions from court documents associated with the ongoing lawsuit involving Binance and the United States. SEC, according to the news agency's interpretation, the Binance US legal representatives asserted in the documents that BAM Management US Holdings had issued a quarter billion dollar convertible note to CZ back in December. CZ, however, challenged the accuracy of the report when he tweeted the following. The amount of wrong information is just they got the direction wrong. I loaned 250 million dollars to BAM a while back, not the other way around, and have not taken it back. The Binance CEO clarified that the loan arrangement was, in fact, the opposite of what was reported in the post. The exec explained that he had extended a 250 million dollar loan to BAM Management and asserted that he had not yet received the payment. So there's nothing new under the sun. Just more FUD, it seems like, fam. The legal battle has taken a toll on Binance US, which saw a flurry of employee departures. The US SEC alleged that Binance was not cooperating in the ongoing probe and even claimed that BAM refused to make essential witnesses available for deposition. Concerns were also raised on CEFFU, which happens to be a custody service offered by Binance's international arm, Binance Holdings Ltd. The SEC's filing claimed that the platform appeared to be in violation of a previous agreement designed to prevent the transfer of the assets abroad. And despite the scathing attacks by the financial regulator, Binance scored a small win this week. The SEC's motion to approve an inspection into Binance US was denied by the USDC District Judge, Zia Farokhia. So there you have it. I mean, the ongoing FUD will more than likely continue, as obviously Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world and regulators seem to have a problem with them and want to go after them for whatever apparent reason. So, like I said, hopefully in the end, you know, truth is revealed and the real story versus all the FUD and, you know, the manipulation of the price action and all the shenanigans we continue to witness in the market. And with that being shared, now let's dive into the Binance CEO, CZ and his 10 million dollar price prediction, as well as him predicting that Bitcoin price action could even a thousand X from here, sending the Bitcoin price parabolic to 26 or even 27 million dollars per coin. Let's break this baby down, shall we? Here we go. JV, have you ever heard of him? A crypto YouTube influencer from Crypto News Alerts remembered CZ's prediction. You're damn right I did. The Bitcoin would reach 10 million per coin. JV referred to the statement in a recent video uploaded on YouTube where he analyzes various aspects of the Bitcoin market development. Now, JV looked back at CZ's Bitcoin prediction while analyzing the Bitcoin CEO's recent Twitter comments. And in a Q &A session on July 5th, CZ addressed several issues, including Binance's reaction to the ongoing regulatory scrutiny. He also spoke about the rising interest of institutional investors in crypto currencies, as well as the proposed BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF. CZ made the 10 million dollar price prediction back in 2021. In fact, I have the article already pulled up and I'm going to be reading word for word what he shared. Following MicroStrategy's announcement, allocating Bitcoin for the corporate strategy, CZ based his analysis on the possibility of several corporate companies, major institutions across the world, allocating just one percent of their corporate treasury into Bitcoin. And according to CZ, that would lead to a thousand X growth in the value of BTC. JV highlighted CZ's welcoming approach to institutional investors in the Bitcoin ecosystem, and CZ noted that advantages in traditional finance firms they bring to the crypto industry, despite concerns about their intentions clashing with Bitcoin's decentralized nature. And according to JV, CZ identified two key factors driving Binance's strategy for the next 18 months. They include the upcoming Bitcoin halving event now less than six months out, as well as, you know, we could be seeing a Bitcoin ETF here in the near future. The Bitcoin community expects the next halving to occur in April of 2024. Now quoting CZ word for word from the initial interview he made on Bloomberg Radio predicting a potential 1000 X increase in the Bitcoin price action. So here's what he had to say. Right now, I think only 11 companies again, this is right around the time that MicroStrategy announced putting Bitcoin on its balance sheet. They announced having allocating some talking about Bitcoin, like usually less than one percent of their corporate treasury to Bitcoin. And we think that it is most likely what caused the initial price rise. I think MicroStrategy's Michael Saylor started it first, but there are six hundred and fifty thousand companies in the world, like relatively established companies in the world, and their treasury is huge. Preach. So if all of them talking about these major institutions only allocated just one percent to Bitcoin, we are going to see, I don't know, 1000 X more growth in the Bitcoin price. And if they allocate more than one percent, then it's going to be even bigger. So I think people don't quite get the magnitude of the wave that is about to hit us. Now, let's run that math one more time. Fam, today's price is roughly twenty six thousand five hundred times that by one thousand. He's talking about a twenty six and a half million dollar Bitcoin price action. The potential if they only put one percent of their strategic reserves into Bitcoin, you do the math. If it's five X and five percent, what are we talking? One hundred and twenty million dollar Bitcoin price. Just saying this is coming from CZ, the world's richest man in crypto. So very powerful words indeed. Let's get back to this prediction of what he shared. So the finance CEO estimates that the flagship crypto can go up anywhere from nineteen hundred percent to twenty thousand percent from the current price levels from the time he made the prediction. And he goes on to share with price predictions. It is really, really difficult. I think it can go to, I don't know, one million dollars, ten million dollars. It is very hard to tell. And again, if we literally did a thousand X from today's price, we're talking twenty six and a half million per BTZ. So CZ also reveals that the exchange is onboarding new users as an at an unprecedented sustained rate during the bull run, outpacing its user growth during the twenty seventeen bull run. So again, this was during the twenty twenty one bull run. Here's what he had to share. Just to give people the idea, in twenty seventeen, when Bitcoin hit the peak of about 20 G's, we were seeing three hundred thousand new registered users per day. And that only happened for a couple of days. And that kind of trailed off and became slower. Now we're seeing sustained new user registrations above the peak and sustained like for over two to three months. So could you imagine running the world's largest crypto exchange and having over three hundred thousand new registered users every single day for like 90 days straight? That is insanity. And that's the previous market. I think twenty twenty four is likely going to outpace the previous market as Bitcoin becomes a common household name and as Bitcoin game theory continues in full effect. You have presidential candidates making Bitcoin a big determining factor. We have people like Ron DeSantis, Kennedy Jr., Javier Malay over in Argentina. So naturally, it's just going to create more commotion and positive catalysts for Bitcoin as we move forward into twenty twenty four. So, I mean, fireworks are ahead. Let me know how you feel. We're likely to finish out this year by December of twenty twenty three. Where do you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to be? And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A. And I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode. HODL.

"Mother Theresa and Me" With Actress Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz
"Back. It's my privilege to be speaking with the actress and producer Jacqueline Vricci Cornaz. I keep trying. You were just telling us the story of so so this film Mother Teresa and me. There are two storylines. One is the story of Mother Teresa whom you play in the film, but the second storyline involves this girl you were just telling about telling us about named Kavita and so that's happening in a contemporary time. In other words, this is she when she goes to Calcutta and she meets the Sisters of Mercy. She does not meet Mother Teresa because this is years after the passing of Mother Teresa. Exactly. Okay. Exactly. There is one moment actually where Mother Teresa holds her in her arms when she you know took her out of a burning hut. So as a baby Kavita she's in the arms of Mother Teresa, but I don't want to tell more about Kavita because it's it's so interesting. I think for the audiences to discover themselves the whole Calcutta story because and Mother Teresa really changes the life of this young woman. Well, it's interesting you talk about. I don't know how you phrased it, but Mother Teresa was you know putting her faith into action and this is a big thing. The the the great Christian Dietrich Bonhoeffer about whom I've written this was his central idea. If you can boil things down was that unless you're living out your faith, you really don't have faith. You have to live it out. You have to put it into action and in a way when you put your faith into action, it deepens your faith and so it's kind of a conundrum because it's it's the two go together and I think a lot of times the tragedy of many Protestants or evangelicals because I wrote a biography also about Martin Luther is to say it's just faith as though it's this intellectual thing and they forget that I must put it into action. Otherwise, perhaps I have no real faith and so it's an important idea and I'm so I'm excited that in this film you give people an opportunity to see that because that's something that people often think of Christianity as just a series of doctrines or beliefs and that's not right. Well, on one hand, of course, we see Mother Teresa as a Christian as a Catholic nun, but we also feel this universal energy of love because this nanny of Kavita, she says, you know, Hindus, Christians, Muslims, we all need the same love and I think that's the main message of the film because our world needs a lot of love to you know to develop and to overcome all the film doesn't take a position, but it wants to inspire people to live with more love in action.
Actress Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz Is in Studio!
"I have the privilege of sitting here in the studio with Jacqueline Fritchey Cornas or something like that II tried not to mess it up too bad. You're just Jacqueline. I Uh because don't. Uh you your native language. Of course you live in Switzerland is German. It's Swiss German. Swiss. What's the difference between Swiss German and German? Swiss German is like a dialect. I think that you know Germans couldn't understand us if we talk in in our dialect, but we learn it as a first language kindergarten and school. Yeah and then it's French Italian English today. Of course we start with English. Yeah and you know any other language, but it's a great privilege to live in a country where you have all these languages around because it's it's so enriching. Yeah and you're able to travel and to talk to the people and to just be in a contact. Did you know as a girl growing up in Switzerland that you would be an actress that you would want to be an actress. You know I was. On stage with 5 years, the first time in my ballet class, yeah, I was a little rat and we just you know we're dancing on stage. I hope this was the nutcracker. No it was oh good and of course I was you know I was so thrilled to feel the emotion and this first time I felt that I'm like an instrument. I played with my body with my soul and I could transmit something and I could feel that the the audiences would respond. So that was actually the moment, which was so inspiring to me, which always told me even if I'm nervous, you know before a premiere or something just go back to that little girl to that rat and and I could I happy yeah and how did you find your way into method acting. That was a wonderful coincidence. I applied for a workshop of Susan Batson, a very famous coach. You know she works with Nicole Kidman with Juliette Binoche and she once came to Europe before the pandemic and I was in Berlin. I was privileged to be a part of it and then she invited me to come to New York to continue the work to really go deeper into the character of Mother Teresa, which helped me in an enormous enormous way and I'm so thrilled that she will be here tonight in our premiere. Oh she she will be there. I'll get to meet

Welcome to the program. We have the privilege of a friend Rabbi Jason Sobol, who is the author of many books. The new one is called signs and secrets of the Messiah. What is a rabbi doing writing about the Messiah? Rabbi Jason? Well, hey, Jesus was a nice Jewish boy. So you know, obviously all Jesus was a rabbi, the disciples are Jewish. And so we want people to see the Bible in high definition in the context in which was written because we believe it makes it come to life. Well, I agree very heartily with that. I was just with my friend, Pastor Greg Denham, who's in San Marcos, California recently, and he's always talking about the context, the Jewishness of the New Testament, the Jewishness of the Jesus movement, and how, what a crime it is more than a crime, what a horror it is, that we have really torn the good news of Jesus away from its Jewish roots that is fundamentally wrong fundamentally on biblical scandalous. And so anytime I have an opportunity to talk about that I want to so tell us about your new book, which is a sequel to the previous book that we discussed on this program. Yeah, absolutely. We wrote signs and secrets of the Messiah, a fresh look at the miracles of Jesus, because we want people to see the life and the ministry of Jesus in a way that makes these things come to life, like never before. I also think there's something for everyone significant in the book in the sense that each one of these miracles has a promise attached to it. And we live in a world where people have lost hope and they wonder if anything can ever actually change. It seems like it's when impossible you look at everything that's going on. And I think by looking at the miracles, we see that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. In fact, the word for the miracles or the signs are testimony. And the word for testimony in Hebrew shares the same Hebrew root as the word again, he's the God of the again, what he did in these miracles he wants to do again today in our lives. There are many people who are pretty serious about their Christian faith, but they don't seem to be open to the miraculous. And I always think that's sad, because God is alive. He wants to do miraculous things. Today of every kind. I wrote a whole book called miracles, where I talked about the variety of ways God speaks to us and moves in our lives. But there are many people who they have a very kind of pinched view of what it means to be a Christian to follow Jesus. And they somehow don't they act like miracles happen in the past, but they can happen now. That is unbiblical. It's wrong. But a lot of people seem to fall into that it's it's it's almost like a secular version of the Christian faith, which is contradiction in terms.
A highlight from Socrates in the City: Eugenia Constantinou (encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas Show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me, so I'm telling you, don't be fooled. The real Eric's in jail. Hey there, folks. Welcome to a special edition, Holy Thursday special edition of the Eric Metaxas Show, where we're going to be airing, starting right now, my conversation from Socrates in the City. We did it on February 28th with the extraordinary Eugenia Constantino. The woman is obviously Greek, but she is, if you've read her book, The Crucifixion of the King of Glory, an utter genius. Not just in her scholarship, but in communicating with super clarity the events of Holy Week, what happens on Good Friday. We thought it was appropriate to air it today because it's just that wonderful. I can't recommend her book, The Crucifixion of the King of Glory, highly enough to anybody interested in what happened that week. It's the latest scholarship. It is brilliant. It is powerful. And it's a devotional thing. So that's why I wanted to air that today. So coming up in a couple seconds, my conversations. Don't miss it. Share it. Here it is. Eugenia Constantino, welcome to the stage of Socrates in the City.

It's just about everything that's happened this week. I'm Eric Hanson, and we begin with President Trump, who made some controversial statements about abortion this week and called Ron DeSantis's six week abortion ban a terrible mistake. We might as well get this out of the way. We got President Trump with an answer to Kristen Welker on NBC's Meet the Press and her debut as the new host, which gave a lot of ammunition to Trump haters who want to hurt him and try to wreck his chances of becoming the nominee in 2024. This is an interesting dilemma that Republicans have. Here's the dilemma. Pro -life fighting for the sanctity of those unborn babies, the sanctity of their lives, the sacredness of the innocent. That's a centerpiece that's foundational for the Republican Party. And whether we like it or not, this particular debate that we're having in America over abortion is crushing us at the ballot box. And Donald Trump, I believe, was trying to address that with Kristen Welker on Meet the Press. Let's get it out of the way. I've been dreading this all weekend. Well, it wasn't all weekend. I mean, this first broke, I think, Saturday. They gave a little preview of his answer. I don't love his answer, but I also don't love the way Trump critics are pouncing on him, claiming he's not pro -life. I got into a big knockdown drag out, as I expected I would with my friend Mark Davis in Dallas, because Mark is now hell bent on proclaiming that Donald Trump is not pro -life. And he's saying that because of this exchange with Kristen Welker yesterday on Meet the Press. If a federal ban landed on your desk, if you were re -elected, would you sign it at 15 weeks? Are you talking about a complete ban? A ban at 15 weeks? Well, people are starting to think of 15 weeks. That seems to be a number that people are talking about right now. Would you sign that? I would I would sit down with both sides and I negotiate something and we'll end up with peace on that issue for the first time in 52 years. I'm not going to say I would or I wouldn't. I mean, the sanctus would really design a five week and six week ban. Would you support that? I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake. But we'll come up with a number. But at the same time, Democrats won't be able to go out in six months, seven months, eight months and allow an abortion. Now, there are people who took that answer and proclaimed that Donald Trump is not pro -life, like it's important to proclaim or make some kind of declaration that he is not pro -life. I believe it's ridiculous to claim that a guy who's the only president to ever attend the March for Life, the guy who promised to get Roe v. Wade overturned because that was terrible federal. That was a terrible federal ruling and appointed Supreme Court justices who did just that to claim that Donald Trump is not pro -life is preposterous. It's absurd. It's virtue signaling. And perhaps it's just. The opportunistic way you chalk up some points for Ron DeSantis, because clearly Team DeSantis is pouncing on Donald Trump over this remark. I believe two things can be true at the same time. You can be pro -life and you can acknowledge that this issue is killing us at the ballot box. And we're losing elections. So President Trump has some campaign trouble to manage. Meanwhile, our current president can barely navigate a simple speech. If you miss Joe Biden at the U .N. this week, well, buckle up. Remember when Trump went to the United Nations and gave a really good speech and the media freaked out and said how goofy and wild and unpresidential and unprecedented it was, they had a complete meltdown and he gave a really decent speech. Compare that to the appearance of Joe Biden yesterday at the U .N. Now, even as we have all our institutions and drive creative new partnerships. Let me be clear. Certain principles of our international system are sacrosanct. Both Biden and Kamala Harris do the same thing when they say, let me be clear, run for the hills, because when they say, let me be clear, you're going to see nothing but mud and gibberish. I mean, babbling incoherently in front of the United Nations. And if that wasn't wild enough, you've got the Ukrainian President Zelensky. He marches in with his entourage. You know, I used to say I was torn about Ukraine. People that I respect insist that we have got to continue to fund the Ukrainian battle with Russia, that the American people have to help Ukraine with its border. We dare not have a wall for our own border, but we better, by God, help Ukraine with theirs. We better fund them. We better give them the missiles they want. We got to give them the ammunition they need. We need to. We got to stop Vladimir Putin. And if you push back against that, you're a stooge for Vladimir Putin. You're a Putin puppet. Just ask Tucker Carlson. When Tucker dared to express the belief that the American people have bigger fish to fry than funding Ukraine, he was thoroughly denounced and renounced as a stooge of Vladimir Putin. So there goes Zelensky marching into the UN yesterday with his bodyguards and his entourage, and he gets up to that podium. And what he said was pretty stunning. I expected he would stand at that giant podium in front of that ugly green background at the UN and talk about the need to fund his military. Talk about Russia's aggression against the Ukrainian people. Talk about Ukraine's place in the whole worldview of things instead. We got this. Even though humanity is failing on its climate policy objectives, this means that extreme weather will still impact the normal global life and some evil state will also weaponize its outcomes. And then people in the streets of New York and other cities of the world went out on climate protest. We all have seen them and when people in Morocco and Libya and other countries die as a result of natural disasters and when islands and countries disappear underwater and when tornadoes and deserts are spreading into into new territories and when all of this is happening, one unnatural disaster in Moscow decided to launch a big war and killed the tens of thousands of people. No wonder loony leftists have the Ukrainian flag in their front yard. You would think the Ukrainian president had bigger problems than climate change. Meanwhile, the United Auto Workers hit the picket lines this week. They made a few modest demands like a 40 % pay raise in a four day work week. Speaking of the UAW strike, I watched Sean Fain, the president of the United Auto Workers Union on the Sunday morning news shows. And you know, I admit I'm not a real big fan of unions. In fact, quite the opposite. I kind of think that unions have helped destroy many aspects of our economic system. In fact, it's a commonly held view that pension plans that used to be in place contributed to the decline of the U S automakers. Well, now the UAW is demanding pensions come back. They want the old fashioned defined benefit plan. And as Bloomberg points out, pensions are not worth striking over. You know what I find interesting about the UAW dispute? I heard all the talking points about how the corporate executives at the big three automakers make too much money. That's a Bernie Sanders mantra. That's an Elizabeth Warren trope. The executives make too much. You know, a company can be producing billions of dollars of revenue, but the Bernie Sanders of the world want to cap what an executive at one of those companies earns, which I always find so fascinating. It's as if they want to equate the guy or gal on the assembly line with the big automakers. Well, they're not the same. I mean it'd be nice if everybody made the same amount of money in life hate to break it to your life doesn't work that way. Some people make more than others and admittedly a lot of it is luck. I don't deserve the living that I make, but I'm very blessed to make a good living. There are people make a lot more than I do and I don't begrudge them anything, but simply because somebody that might have a show on television might make 10 times what I make. I don't think I should make what they make simply because we do the same essentially same thing. I mean, and Democrats always have such hypocrisy on this issue. Like somebody just texted me, how many homes does Bernie Sanders have again? It's more than one. But here's something that I noticed when I heard Sean Fain, the president of the UAW talk about executives compensation and how we're not making enough and we're taking steps backwards. I mean, the fact of the matter is the union gave up the defined benefit pension plan in a previous negotiation. Now they want it back. When you give up a benefit like that, you're not going to get it back. That's not realistic. And here's what I'm interested in. You know what was missing from all the coverage of the UAW strike? They never talk about what auto make auto workers make. Now I kept hearing how somebody on the assembly line can't feed their family. Really? What do they make? I kept hearing that Sean Fain kept saying the auto workers have taken three steps backwards. Really? How much do they earn? I know what they want to make. They want a 40 % pay increase and they want to only work four days a week. Now that's a pretty good deal.
A highlight from Jennifer Morse
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his scene because The Blob was supposed to eat him, but he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. A number of years ago, somebody alerted me to the existence of one Jennifer Morris, who is the founder and president of the Ruth Institute. I had her as my guest Socrates at in the City. We've had her on the program a number of times, but it's been a while, and I'm excited to have her back to talk about some important things. So, Jennifer Morris, welcome back. Thanks for having me, Eric. It was great. That was back in the day when I talked to you at Socrates in the City. That was back when gay marriage was still considered a debatable topic, and now that's completely off the table and we're on to the next thing that we're all supposed to That's accept. the point. So, you talk a little bit about the Ruth Institute. You're the founder and president of that, and then I want to talk about your book, The Sexual State. It's all, unfortunately, very important, but I'm just glad to have you because people try to process this stuff, and you're one of the voices that's been processing it for a long time. Yes, yes. Well, thank you. Thank you for that. Yeah, so the Ruth Institute is an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love, and we really are international. We really are interfaith, Eric. I have people working on my staff, actually, you know, who are Orthodox, Mormon, Jewish, evangelical, you know, but we're trying to defend the ancient Christian teaching that is the heritage or the common heritage of the whole Christian tradition, which is one man, one woman for life. Get married, stay married, only have sex with the person you're married to. You have to admit that would solve a lot of problems, you know, if we only had sex with the person we were married to, or even with our own bodies, which is what the whole transgender movement is about. So, the Ruth Institute tries to present a unified front explaining what's wrong with the sexual revolution, not just the thing that's happening right now, not just the thing that's happening in the last five minutes, but, you know, the 10, 20, 30, 40 years that led up to it there, so that people can have a comprehensive look at what's really going on here. And there's so much going on here, and I think that what I always say, at least the last year, I say it's about reality. God created this thing we call reality. In the founding documents, they say nature's God, the God who created nature, all that exists in nature.

That's Legacy PM investments dot com. Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to the program. I am so excited right now I could burst almost literally, but not literally. I have on a friend, Neil Mammon, who is involved in something that I've been talking about for some time. It's really exciting. So I before tell you all about it, why don't I just say welcome, Neil Mammon. Thank you. Good to be here again. OK, we're going to be talking about something. I can't believe it exists. I feel like I dreamt it up, but nobody would ever execute such a thing. But you and Roger Elswick. Have made this a reality, this is a big deal, this is an answer to a real problem we have, I say everywhere I go that folks, if you're going to a church that is not dealing with the issues in our culture, that is unwilling to face this and that is whistling in the wind, that is fiddling while Rome burns, you need to find another church. I say this over and over and I beg people, God will judge you for sitting in a church that is shrinking from its duty before God to speak to these issues. And then the question is, people say, well, where would I go to a church? So, Neil, tell us. Well, the problem is really, really obvious. And I get that all the time. I go around speaking. People go, oh, do you know a good church in this or that area? Well, it turns out that more than that, it turns out one point seven million people look for a new church every month. One point seven people look for a new church billion million. And now if you assume that's a family unit here or there, that's about five million people looking for a new church every month. Most of them turns out it's Sunday morning. So I wanted to do some research on it. So I went on, you know, that the source of all information is Google's barred artificial intelligence. And I said, tell me what sort of churches these people are looking for. And Bard comes back with, oh, they're looking for progressive, more loving, more accepting churches. That's what Google said. And I said, really, is that true? I don't believe that. So I said, give me the information. Give me the evidence of that. By the way, before I start, I should mention this. I have a statistics. I want a statistic. I want your readers. I don't want you to guess because you'll know the answer. Here's a quote. Only 17 percent of Americans go to church. The interest in religion is minimal. And in New York, single women are more likely to be sexually active than attend the church. Worse, 33 percent of all pregnancies in New York are out of wedlock.

"Folks, welcome to the Eric Metaxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacy PM investments dot com. That's legacy PM investments dot com. Hey, you have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to the Eric Metaxas show? Well, welcome. Tune in and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC. Here now is Mr. Completed my bucket list at age 12. Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to the program. Today is Tuesday, September 19th. Exciting stuff. First of all, in a moment, we're going to talk about John Fetterman's clothing choices and how the world is going to hell at the speed of light. That's number one. Number two, we're going to talk to our friend Larry Taunton about everything else in the world and how things are going to hell at the speed of light. Larry Taunton, of course, dear friend. So he's my guest in our one in our two. We talked to another friend, Rosaria Butterfield. She has a book out. I have a copy here. Five lies of our anti -Christian age. She is amazing. We're going to have an hour with her today. That's our two. And then I'm going to get another hour with her, which will play another time because she's just extraordinary. So lots more to say on many other subjects. Tonight, we have a special Socrates in the city patrons dinner here in New York City. I want to talk about that another time. We're launching some very exciting Socrates initiatives, brand new, exciting. But so that's that's the setup. But we have our fashion expert, O .W. Root. He's a fashion blogger, culture critic. O .W. Root, welcome back. Thanks for having me. OK, what do we make of the unbelievably slovenly John Fetterman, who is somehow a United States senator dressing the way he does and not just that, but the headline is somehow maybe you know more about this than I do. The Senate, in a nod to the devil in hell, has said we're going to relax our clothing standards and we're going to let you wear a hoodie in the Senate. It's like we're making this up. What do you think of the situation? There's two things that come to mind when I think about this. First is the unbelievable hubris that exists in Fetterman. I mean, think of the hubris that it takes to serve as a senator in the United States of America, the most powerful empire on Earth, and essentially refuse to meet the basic standards of decorum and then force essentially a tyranny of the unreasonable, force them to relax their standards just for you. Think of the level of selfish hubris that exists there. And next, when we see this, it is a physical representation of the degeneration that we see everywhere. Our clothes reflect civilization and they reflect the health of our civilization. What the does clothing of John Fetterman again? Not some random guy on the street. He's a senator, United States of America, most powerful empire on Earth. And this is what he wears. And this is what they have changed the rules to allow. It is a sign of degeneration. Do we know why they changed the rules? I mean, the whole thing, I guess I haven't looked into it. So I'm not I'm not really clear on why they did that. Well, I know this. I believe that there is a rule that you can't vote unless you are wearing a suit. And he would vote from the corridor or something. Yeah, believe it or not. So he would sort of stick his head in and vote. So this is something like a high schooler. This was something a high schooler would do. You know, someone is like, I'm here, I'm here for class. Right now. And maybe they changed it for that reason. Maybe this reflects a bigger trend, honestly, toward the generation and collapse, because you've seen the adoption of tennis shoes. You've seen some of these senators that are pushing for sneakers to be allowed. Have you I don't know if you've seen these news articles, but there are more senators and politicians who are they've had these articles written about how great sneakers are and how we need to bring them into. The government. Yeah, yeah. I'm sure George Washington, if he could have would have worn would have worn sneakers, it's obvious that he would have worn red, you know, high tops, canvas high tops. No. Now, what's interesting to me about this? And by the way, people want to find you. They can go to necktie salvage dot com o w route at necktie salvage dot com. But we're talking about bigger issues, obviously. It's not about what one wears as much as what does it mean? What is what does it mean when a building is ugly? You know, is that just a architecture thing or does it touch the soul one way or the other? You could talk about brutalist architecture and how it seems to make us feel small and insignificant. There's other architecture. You look at it. It ennobles you. It inspires you. It's beautiful. Clothing is the is the same thing. And we talked about this last time you were on that, you know, since the 60s, there's been this it's almost like this kind of false egalitarianism, this idea that, oh, we don't want to make people feel bad who can't afford to dress well. So we're all going to dress like bums in solidarity with them. Now, the irony is that if you look at pictures from the past, every poor person, you see pictures in Harlem. Everybody is wearing a coat and tie, has tremendous dignity and took pride somehow in looking dignified and adult. And that's really what is happening to me. It's always it's a biblical issue in the sense that, you know, the head becomes the tail, the tail becomes the head. You no longer have this this order. In a sense, you have to say like, oh, we want adults to dress like kids because Federman, he's just like a sloppy kid. I mean, kids wouldn't dress like that years ago. But the point is that now it's like, I don't know, he has so much money and has so much white guilt that he wants to dress like what in his mind somebody would wear, you know, in the inner city. I don't know what's going on there, but it's something to do with that. We want to show solidarity with those who don't, you know, have the ability to. In other words, it's it's not logical, but that seems to be what's behind it. Absolutely. And this it reminds you of. Let's bring it back to those pictures you mentioned. You go back to the 30s, 20s, 40s. You could be destitute and you are you see guys wearing a coat tie. And there is a sense of ascendant dignity there. It's lifting up the impoverished, lifting up the common man because clothes represent him in a higher image. So what does it mean now in our decadence and in John Fetterman's decadence in our? We have so much money, he has so much money, and so he chooses to go down, he chooses to bring it down. Like you said, this false egalitarianism and go down and down. And it's not a shock that when you see those old photos, when things were really tough, times were tough, times were hard. But there was this need to reaffirm one's dignity through the difficulties. But for John Fetterman, there are no difficulties. In fact, he has made he's essentially forced the Senate to compromise to him. And so he has no difficulties. And so he doesn't need to reaffirm any dignity because he can dress like child. a And again, my son doesn't even dress like that. My son doesn't wear hoodies. My son doesn't wear a graphic T -shirts he wears. If I had a son who dressed like that, I'd put a beating on him. No, it's kind of it's kind of interesting. It's very interesting. It's a larger conversation. We don't have time right now, but we have to have it. But because I know that there are probably many men listening to this program right now who say, well, you know, Eric O .W., I don't know, I don't know. I don't like to I don't like to get dressed up. I don't like to I get that. Now, there's there's a there's another conversation there about the whole thing, because I really think what's happened is this used to be so normal that you didn't really have to think about it. Everybody had a certain kind of clothing. You just put it on like a uniform. You didn't have to think of it. I kind of have that. You know, I kind of a couple of jackets. It's not like I got to go, oh, what am I going to do? What? And I think that's part of what's happened is that we have we we no longer know how to dress. We don't know what is the formula. What is the it used to be a basic thing. Kids, young boys would wear shorts, not long pants. At a certain age, you dress like a man. You'd wear long pants and a coat and tie. Kind of a basic thing. Policemen wear a uniform. A nurse would wear uniform, doctor or uniform, white, whatever. All of that stuff was part of the culture. It's gone out of the culture. And now we're sort of confused. And so a lot of people in their confusion, they throw up their hands, they put on a hoodie and they vote in the Senate. We're at a time. Oh, W. Root, thanks for coming on necktie salvage dot com. Coming up, Larry Taunton. And after that, Rosaria Butterfield, folks, don't go away.

"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me, so I'm telling you, don't be phoned. The real Eric's in jail. Hey there folks, welcome to the program. I am really particularly excited to speak to my guest right now. Her name is Rosaria Butterfield. If you don't know of her, hold onto your hat because her story is amazing. She's been on the program in the past, but it's been a while. So before I get into the details, let me simply say, Rosaria, welcome to the program. Thank you, Eric. It's such a joy to be here with you. It's a joy for me. Now, your story is an amazing story, and I want to start there for people who don't know who you are because very few people have stories as dramatic as yours is. You have a new book out. We're going to be talking about that. It's called Five Lies of our Anti -Christian Age. This is red hot stuff. But your story is that you were a professor of English and women's studies at Syracuse University. You were in a same -sex relationship for years, and then something insane happened, and you became a Jesus freak and got married. You're a homeschool mother. You speak around the country. But your story is an extraordinary story, and I just want to touch on that before we get into this book for people who aren't familiar with it. I've given the highlight. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, it's the power of the gospel to change lives. I was a professor of English at Syracuse University. I was a coordinator of what was then called the Gay and Lesbian Studies Program. In many ways, I was hired and mentored and then tenured to make homosexuality look wholesome, which to my shame, pulled off. I wasn't just any old lesbian. I was the one you were not wanting to have to deal with. I wasn't just any old lesbian. No, not a guard variety one. No, I co -authored the university's Domestic Partnership Policy, steamrolled gay marriage. Listen, Eric, when I look at this world, my fingerprints are all over it, and I think about that every day. But I was working on a book on the religious right, basically just wanted to know why people like you hated people like me. Straightforward question. I didn't need any more friends. I didn't care if I had any more enemies. I just had a question. In the process, the Lord allowed me the amazing opportunity to get to know Ken Smith, who was the pastor of the Syracuse Reformed Presbyterian Church. He was also my neighbor. And after about 500 meals at his house, probably a conservative number there, and reading through the Bible seven times with Ken, we weren't sitting around chatting about whatever. He didn't ask me how I felt. He didn't ask me if needed a gay bowling league in the church. He genuinely wanted me to know that he accepted me as a lesbian, but he didn't approve because God didn't approve. And so I just put that out there because I think people don't understand. I came to faith under the doctrine of the Christian faith, not this garbage that you see out there right now. The idea was that I would change, that God would capture my heart, and I would desire Him, and that I would change and no longer be gay. And so really, when I committed my life to Jesus, it wasn't because I stopped feeling like a lesbian or I was just kind of zapped. It was that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was true, and it was a truth that I had no interpretive authority over. And that's when the there's so much to talk about. Now, you wrote a memoir called The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert, and I recommend it. And one of the joys of talking to you and to Beckett Cook and to so many others that I've spoken to over the years is to hear the stories of people who were in that world, who are not anymore in that world, because we live in a world that has a narrative, and that narrative doesn't like to hear stories like yours or Beckett Cook's. They say, no, no, no, that can't happen. That doesn't happen. Those people are nuts. Well, it does happen. I have friends to whom it has happened. And it's an amazing thing when you hear the stories of transformation and suddenly you're confronted with the idea that this is possible. I lived in a world where I was told this is not possible, this cannot happen, and yet here's a story, here's a story. And, you know, you go into details in your story. But one of the reasons, as I said, it's a joy to have you on is just because there's so few places where you can hear stories like yours that give people hope that maybe my life can be different or my friend who's going through this or my friend who's going through this. So just imagine that that was one of your motivations for telling your story.

Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners. Good morning, Peter. Good morning, Ant, Dombey, Jacob, Wade, everybody else in the audience, all the loyal listeners. If you're new, we play that song at the beginning of every show. I highly encourage you to go look up the words and read the words to that song. It's mind blowing. Welcome back, Ant. Thank you. Thank you. I see you guys held it down. Yeah, we were all sad. We missed you. Oh, I'm really sure. I had to explain you to my sisters yesterday, Ant. Oh, I'm sure that went well. You were the technical guy, that's the other technical guy who does other technical things and has other technical knowledge. All the technicals. We did have like the Wicked show yesterday, was it yesterday? I don't know. We had a moment where the scale was up, came up and she was like, I have a wicked question. And then that was KSD. It great. was All right. You're listening to Cafe Bitcoin. This is episode four hundred and thirty eight. Shout outs to our sponsors on Fountain Nosterness. Our mission for this show is to provide the signal in a sea of noise, teach the other seven billion people on this planet why there is hope because of this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin. Today, again, we're going to try and discuss near perfect energy arbitrage. I've been meaning to do that for three different episodes now. We never actually get to it because the content is so dang good. The questions are good. The discussions are good. Hopefully we get that today. There's also a bunch of nonsense that the lizards are up to that I think needs to be highlighted. We shine lights on lizards and lizards doing lizard things. And it's I hope it helps you guys. Peter. Speaking of lizards, my banking saga continued. So, you know, yesterday I was talking about having trouble transferring money in my account being frozen, et cetera, et cetera. I thought, well, I'll just go into the bank, get out cash, and then I'll go make the deposit into my friend's account. Right. So I put my tweet up in the nest. I'm just going to it's real quick. I'm just going to read it. I said friend needed financial support, went to their bank with cash to deposit. Teller, we don't take cash. Me, what? Teller, sorry. Me, manager? Manager, we don't take cash. Random patron looks at me and mouths, what the fuck? Me, thank God. I literally said this. I said, thank God for Bitcoin. I walked out of the place. My friend, thanks for the BTC. You said that in a bank, Peter. What? You said that in a bank, Peter? Yeah. You're on the list. Hell yeah. You're on the list. That's like saying bomb on a plane. I looked at this lady, this manager, I looked at her. I was like, what the fuck is cash for? She goes, well, you can go buy stuff. I said, you're a bank. You don't take cash? No, thank God for Bitcoin. I fucking walked out. I couldn't believe it. You're all on a list. Every single one of you. It's OK, Peter. I got on the list a long time ago. I was on a phone call with my bank a long time ago and it was just like a lowly customer support person. And I was like new in Bitcoin, like brand new and like, you know, feeling it. And I was like, this is why y 'all are going down. You see, this is why Bitcoin is going to take you all out. So I'm sure I'm on the list as well. OK, later today, second half of the show, we've got Eric Kaysen joining us. Looking forward to that. That dude, he's one of my favorites. He's an extremely passionate Bitcoiner and deep thinker, in my opinion. He says some stuff that is I mean, there's a lot of edgy people in Bitcoin that are willing to say and call out lizard nonsense. Eric pulls no punches, man. This dude, when he's laying it down, I'm like looking around the room thinking, are any of these guys that are in here fed? Because he's definitely on the list. And so is everybody in this room. Oh, I'm sure we've had feds in this room for a long time now. Yeah, probably. I mean, these are all recorded, right? So, yeah, I guess they let it back. Yep, yep, pretty much. Good morning. They won't get the emojis, though. Yeah, screw them. I wish these guys would do something illegal. Mike Hobart, good morning. Mickey Koss, good morning. Terrence Yang, good morning. Oh, by the way, congratulations, Terrence. Terrence was on Bloomberg again. Dang. Thank you. Thank you. He's a regular now. Whenever they want to know something about Bitcoin, they call Terrence Yang. Your star's rising, Terrence. And Terrence is like, oh my God. And Terrence is like, hang on one second. I got to hang on one second. I got to park this dim sum cart so I can go get into a nice background place and do my interview with you guys. Exactly. Exactly, due to my crappy or just something's not great with faces for my audio, so it doesn't do noise suppression. So but it's motivating me to take a walk. So instead of you guys listening to the piano music from the hotel again. As long as you don't walk into that ballet center again, Terrence. I think that was Beetlejuice. I did not record. Terrence, if you don't mind me asking, since I didn't see the Bloomberg appearance, what did they ask you about? Did they ask you about any of your opinions on the Binance situation or is it just strictly Bitcoin and price? A little bit Binance. It was price, not as much price this time. I think I'm not sure why, but it was more about ETF kind of timing. And we got into spot versus futures of the SEC loss badly against Grayscale. So actual signal then, that's good. Allegedly, yeah. No, they ask good questions. That's good questions. And then talked about some tax stuff, stuff like that. Terrence, you were telling them how it's going to go down this year. That's interesting. How did they react to that? I did point out that 75 % of quote unquote experts surveyed said that Bitcoin ETF will be approved by year end, which I don't agree with. Yeah. Who are these experts? Are they the writers that coined it? These crypto people, right, because sometimes our stars do align a little bit with the crypto people short term. So their PR machine is formidable. So I think they just go around and random crypto experts opine on Bitcoin ETF timing based on their chat TBT law degrees or whatever. Here's a big wrench, Terrence, and you have a law degree, so you can tell me if this is possible. This may throw a wrench into the some of the bets on the side chains. What is it possible for the SEC to approve Grayscale, but with a go live date that's next year or far out or some kind of ambiguous, like, yeah, it's approved conditionally with this. And then people, well, it wasn't approved. It was approved. That I don't know, but typically they just kind of approve, delay or deny. And then when they approve, you just have to do all the paperwork. It's like they're always approved with conditions. Everything the government does or lawyers do. And now you're talking about government lawyers. So every approval is like if you meet the, you know, registration requirements, blah, blah, blah, you can do it. Go ahead and file the paperwork and, you know, give us comfort that you're compliant. Yeah, but they can attach conditions like, OK, so you're saying you're doing the surveillance sharing agreement. We are only doing this if that actually gets signed is, you know, not clear that that signed it, blah, blah, blah. They might add some details. I think that's possible. I don't actually know that much about ETF approvals, but that should be how it goes. It's kind of based on all the other stuff that government regulators tend to do. Yeah, because that's that's my new thing is, is this is backed by no for the listeners, no legal knowledge whatsoever, zero. But if they can find a way to approve Grayskills, put a timing on it that somehow screws them and lets BlackRock, whoever's first in line for the ETF, go live first. That's what I see them do. Yeah, that's possible. I feel like they're not that explicit. Like, OK, so a couple of things. One, if you're a Gensler, political animal, Bitcoiner, allegedly, you would probably want to do what? Delay approval just because, you know, hurts to lose three to zero in the D .C. In or batches dispersed would be one of the big four. It doesn't have to be BlackRock, right? Because the public perception, at least in some corners of the universe, they tend to think that BlackRock is super evil because they're so big, totally misunderstanding how asset managers work. But anyway, you might pick one of the big four, the new one being Franklin Templeton, 1 trillion .4 AUM, I think Invesco is like 1 .6, Fidelity and BlackRock are orders of magnitude. So one of those big four. Maybe do it in batches, politically you might do, I hate to say it, Cassie Wedge from ARK because she's a woman and she's very vocal.
A highlight from Courts Hand SEC Half an L in Binance US Case
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Tuesday, September 19th, and today we are talking about Binance and their SEC court decision yesterday. Is it significant? And is it just kicking the can down the road? We will go through all of that. Before we do, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Well, friends, it is a day that ends in Y, so there is, of course, another Binance story. Binance had a fairly big day in court on Monday in their legal battle with the SEC. Leading into the hearing, the allegations and speculation had started to reach a fever pitch. The SEC had begun to hone in on the theory that Binance U .S. did not and never had exclusive control over customer assets. That if true would be a big deal as Binance had always maintained that U .S. customer assets were strictly segregated from the international exchange. Indeed, they used this argument to defend an SEC injunction shortly after the legal proceedings commenced in June. If granted, the injunction would have frozen assets at Binance U .S., which would have functionally been a death sentence for the domestic exchange. In deciding that injunction, the court ordered the parties to come back with an agreement that they could both live with rather than making a decision on their own. As part of those consent orders, Binance agreed that they would ensure that only local U .S. staff would have access to customer assets. However, as the SEC dug further into their investigation, they claimed that Binance U .S. which they viewed as intimately linked to Binance International. Cefu was launched under the name Binance Custody in December 2021. It was renamed in February of this year, around the same time that rumors of an in -depth government investigation into Binance first emerged. On Friday, Cefu asserted in a press release that they were entirely separate from Binance International and that they don't even service BAM Trading, which is the company that operates Binance U .S. They wrote, We strongly reject this claim. As a custody technology services provider under Cefu Holdings, we are committed to servicing institutional clients with digital asset custody solutions in select jurisdictions, excluding the United States, among others. Furthermore, Cefu's operations and services are distinctly separate from BAM and Binance Holdings Limited." A Cefu spokesperson added that, Unfortunately, earlier in the week, Binance U .S. had contradicted parts of that claim in a legal filing. Rather than denying the use of Cefu in their operations, Binance U .S. acknowledged that the service was developed by Binance International and licensed to the U .S. entity. And while the specific origin of the Binance U .S. custody system might seem like a minor detail, this is the main focus of the lawsuit at the moment. The SEC is claiming that Binance International had de facto control over customer funds at the U .S. exchange. If that's the case, then Binance could be viewed as deliberately misleading the court surrounding this issue. It would also advance the SEC's argument that Binance U .S. was nothing more than a front to allow U .S. customers to access the international exchange and provide a veneer of domestic regulatory compliance. So that's a bit of the background. Now on Monday morning, the SEC filed additional material to support their order, which asked the court to compel Binance to cooperate with the discovery process. They said, quote, Indeed, in earlier filings, the regulator had raised issues surrounding the lack of disclosure. They noted that Binance had only produced 220 documents, many of them characterized as quote, unintelligible screenshots and documents without dates or signatures. Further, according to the SEC, Binance U .S. were resisting the deposition of a number of key executives. In a court filing in August, Binance claimed that the deposition of CEO Brian Schroeder would be, quote, You'll remember that Schroeder was confirmed to have left the company in early September, although his lack of social media presence has led some to speculate that his departure was closer to the beginning of the year. The SEC appears to have been informed of Schroeder's departure only recently and clearly haven't recruited him yet as a cooperating witness. They said that this strange turn of events and Binance's continued resistance to producing Schroeder, quote, Now, the SEC was primarily concerned that Binance U .S. was continuing to use SEFU for its custody, which could be used to shift customer assets offshore. They said that Binance U .S. had failed to convince the regulator that they had control over customer assets, adding that these claims were, quote, Binance U .S. had provided, quote, They said that, quote, BAM insists that this court, like the SEC, should accept packaged counsel narratives, carefully drafted declarations, and small curated sets of documents regarding control of BAM's customer assets, and that any lingering concerns are much ado about nothing. To top it all off, the SEC warned that Binance CEO CZ is, quote, The SEC claimed that they have demonstrated that, quote, Binance has a long history of controlling BAM to serve Binance's own unlawful purpose. Ultimately, the regulator asked the court for an order, quote, Now, in their opposing court filing placed on the record on Monday morning, Binance U .S. reiterated their claim that SEC demands were unreasonable. They called the documents requested overbroad and too much of an inconvenience. Binance U .S. further alleged that many of the documents requested are either not in the exchange's possession or fall outside the scope of the lawsuit. At 3 p .m., the parties entered the courtroom for what would be a tense hearing. Binance U .S. called the demand for documents so broad they would be impossible to produce. A lawyer representing the exchange said that, quote, The judge indicated that Binance U .S. really would need to provide a bit more documentation of their custody arrangements. They said, adding that they weren't, quote, The SEC lawyer, meanwhile, explained that the problem at the moment was that, quote, They argued that the SEC needed much more information about the wallet set up at Binance U .S. than they currently have. At one stage, the attorney for Binance exclaimed, They said that the exchange had responded to every targeted request from the regulator. The lawyer added that, quote, So what came out of all of this? Well, ultimately, the judge declined to make any orders to compel discovery from Binance, but it was made clear that the exchange would need to increase its cooperation, let's say. The judge said that they were not, adding that, quote, I'm not going to order from the bench right now that they produce or not produce things. Let's continue to try to work this out. I just want to keep things moving. The judge also noted that, quote, As investor Adam Cochran summed it up, the judge did deny the inspection but also said they needed Binance U .S. to comply and produce more documentation as the judge was not convinced of the asset backing. This is saying the inspection is overkill for now and giving Binance the chance to comply. Now, ultimately, these issues around Sifu are largely still about litigating whether the assets of Binance U .S. should be frozen to prevent customer funds from being sent offshore. However, given that volumes on the exchange have collapsed by more than 99 percent over the past six months, it seems likely that users have largely taken that issue off the table already. The matter is scheduled to return to court on October 12th for a follow -up hearing. Now, outside of the hearing, the court docket continues to bloat with additional evidence gleaned by the SEC. Much of this evidence was originally filed under seal or in a heavily redacted form, but the regulator is currently in the process of unsealing documents. Earlier this month, the SEC obtained the cooperation of the former auditor for Binance U .S., which produced in excess of 6 ,500 pages on the accounting at the exchange. The document was unredacted on Monday, revealing the auditor's conclusion that it was, quote, very difficult to ensure the company was fully collateralized at specific points in time. One of the SEC's requests for further information filed in June related to a 250 million dollar intercompany loan given to Binance U .S. by the international exchange in December of last year. The convertible note was funded using BUSD, 183 million of which was sent to Paxos to convert into dollars. The SEC wanted some additional details about the reason for this transaction. The topic was initially flagged as confidential by Binance, but that designation was apparently successfully rebutted by the SEC. Now, there was a lot of chatter on this on Twitter. With many people taking it as evidence of some smoking gun, Binance had been less than honest about their dealings with Binance U .S. Perhaps the most intriguing tidbit, however, filed recently was a declaration given by J. Emmett Murphy of the SEC's trial division. The document, again filed on Monday, introduced into evidence three additional depositions. All three were filed under seal, but were used to support the need for further examination of the SEFU system. The declaration identified one witness as Eric Kellogg, BAM's chief information security officer, but the other two identities were redacted. All three depositions occurred over the last month, with the latest taking place last Wednesday. So here's the way that Adam Cochrane summed this all up, which I think is a pretty good TLDR. He tweets, SEC seeks court order for inspection of Binance U .S., now expressly calling out that SEFU is indeed a Binance -related entity and that Binance U .S. has been misleading the court. The SEC calls out that this violates the consent decree that required new wallets expressly away from Binance International Control and Access, but interestingly specifically notes this is important as Binance has controlled BAM for its quote, own unlawful purposes. That's a claim we've not seen the SEC lobby here before, at least not outside of anything sealed or redacted. We also learned for the first time that the SEC sought the testimony of Brian Schroeder, U .S. CEO, and Jasmine Lee, U .S. CFO, but have been denied and fought on that and only just got told that Schroeder is no longer CEO, despite Schroeder being missing for eight plus months. They had argued that Schroeder's testimony would be too disruptive to business and now got told he isn't on the job, which is wild, as I think we all assumed he pulled a Catherine Coley Brian Brooks and gave testimony. Seems he's just disappeared and gone silent? Either way, the SEC here is suggesting, one, there is evidence of crimes, two, there is indeed evidence that SEFU is Binance International, three, SEFU is not simply a wallet provider, and four, BAM executives themselves lack insight on Binance U .S. assets and tooling. Now, for completeness, Adam Cochran also tweeted about the deposition from the auditor that said that it was impossible to tell whether Binance U .S. had been fully collateralized at specific points in time. He said, if your own external auditor can't say you are fully collateralized when you are supposed to be a 100 % reserves exchange and have your own proof of reserves that claim you're over collateralized, that is a problem. Binance uses the SEFU wallet custody system, previously Binance Custody, for both Binance International and Binance U .S., as noted in their filings. If this system is not capable of managing the small Binance U .S. numbers, how could it keep track of International? And if Binance U .S., its more compliant exchange, never commingled or misused client funds and was isolated from International as they claim, then it would be literally impossible to have a gap. The only way this is possible is the misuse of customer funds resulting in losses. I believe at some point in their scaling, they had material losses when misusing customer funds and exposing themselves to leverage via BNB. They've continued to misuse customer funds to try and cover this hole, but a declining market has made that an ongoing shell game. Whether you think that is a fair assessment or not, there should at this point be absolutely no doubt that the correct risk model is to move your assets off of Binance. Now, for the sake of a counterpoint, Bruce Fenton tweeted this morning, Binance is perhaps the most scrutinized and attacked company in modern history. The United States has investigated them and thrown everything they can at them. Yet, despite all this, we don't have a single accusation, let alone evidence, that Binance has lost customer funds. Now, trying to wrap this all up, a lot of the commentary around this is trying to figure out if the SEC won or lost this court trip. Will Clemente from Reflexivity Research tweeted, courts have been handing the SEC L after L lately, but others aren't so sure. CZ certainly didn't think so, retweeting someone who wrote, seems like they can't find anything but they want to continue making headlines. Maybe the most middle of the road interpretation came from the headline from Bloomberg, which read, SEC fails to win immediate inspection of Binance US software, and I think that that fails to win is probably a better representation at this point than actually getting the loss. But my friends, as you can tell, we are well in the minutia of this, but the details matter. There certainly is a feeling of crescendo to this story. And either way, it's hard for me to imagine that the industry isn't better on the other side of it. Better because Binance has vindicated, or better, unfortunately, because the last giant has fallen, and we can finally move on, largely rid of what came before. In either case, I will be sure to keep you updated. So until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.

A highlight from Mike Signorelli
"Trump calls Florida heartbeat bill a terrible mistake, and Mike Pence talks war with Russia. So I think if you will allow me to speak critically of Donald Trump for five minutes, I will speak critically. No, no, no, no. Look, you know, and I know, everybody listens who to this program knows that I don't think Trump is perfect. I think he ought to be the next president. And I think that, as you know about me and about many people listening to this program, that we are radically pro -life. We think it's a moral issue. And I think that Trump has made, I think he misspoke. I think it was, I don't know. Well, talk about it so people understand what we're talking about. Donald Trump went on face the nation and said that the heartbeat bill Ron DeSantis bravely signed in Florida was a terrible thing, a terrible mistake. And he said that he wouldn't commit to supporting any kind of federal restriction on the taking of unborn life. And he said with characteristic real estate bravado, well, I'm going to have policies that are going to make everybody happy. Everybody's going to walk away happy from the table. That is not how things work. When you're talking about life and death issues, Mr. President, that is how things might work. If you're negotiating over ownership of a golf course. All right. All right. Each of you is going to get nine holes. Okay. You'll each get nine holes. It's wonderful. You got, you've got half a golf course, half a loaf is better than none. But we remember from the story of Solomon, half a baby is not better than none. In this case, we're talking about cutting the baby in half. Literally we're talking about should abortion, should the pro -life position be, we want a bad abortion after maybe 15 weeks, which would only get rid of maybe 8 % of the abortions in America. If that's the pro -life position, it's not worth a damn thing. That's the law in Germany. That's the law in France. That's the law in Belgium. All these countries where euthanasia is now taking over. Having a 10 week, a 15 week abortion ban solves absolutely nothing. It just means the women who are so dopey, they don't even know they're pregnant until like 18 weeks won't be able to get abortions. That's all it means. He's really just punishing the stupid. It's not saving a significant number of babies. I don't know who Trump is getting his advice from on the abortion issue, but they're not on our side. They are like the Jared Kushner. They're not on our side. What Trump is saying is a complete loser position. It's like saying we're going to build the wall. We're going to build the wall with the Mexican border, except every 20 feet there's going to be a gap. We'll get most of the wall built. There'll guess who will come. I think a couple of things need to be said. First of all, I already said it. Trump is not perfect. So he often has done things that I think are harmful to himself. And saying that I think just politically is a mistake. But we also have to say without a doubt he has been the most pro -life president we ever had in this country. Because of him and standing up for Kavanaugh, Roe v. Wade was overturned. I want to remind people of that. I also want to remind people that he spoke at the March for Life. No other president had done that. And so right now, I guess I find everything with him, not everything, but a lot of stuff just funny. It's almost like he'll say anything Ron DeSantis says, he'll say the opposite. I know. You could be triggered and tripped into that. And it's his Achilles heel that whatever Trump, whatever DeSantis says, Trump will somehow try to spin it. Trump even said that Andrew Cuomo did a better job on COVID than Ron DeSantis. That is literally the most insane thing any American politician has said since Jefferson Davis said I want to secede from the union. It's up to that level of crazy. But Trump, I mean Trump does this stuff for effect. In other words, for political effect to drive people crazy. That's why I guess I find it at least partially entertaining that he'll go out on a limb and say something like that just to trigger DeSantis. The problem is this stuff isn't cute. There were thousands of people murdered in those nursing homes in New York. Abortion isn't cute. This is not something funny. This is not like letting Jared and Ivanka turn the White House into their own little party hut. This is really serious. And our only leverage over Trump is right now during the primaries. If he gets the nomination, he can do whatever he wants because he will be elected president unless they assassinate him, which I do not put past that. I do not put that past the deal. Oh, I know that there have been attempts that we haven't heard about, but obviously they would do anything to get rid of him. We have our leverage now, especially before the Iowa caucus. Trump needs to be told if you keep saying this weak, rhino, wimpy garbage about abortion, maybe we'll hold our noses and vote for you against Joe Biden because we don't want to be put in prison camps. But we're not going to go to the mattresses for you. We're not going to go to the wall for you. We're not going to be fanatical, devoted supporters. We will hold our nose and vote for you the way we held our noses and voted for George W. Bush. Do you want to be the next George W. Bush? Well, no, John, I think it's worse than that. I think what will happen, what will happen is many evangelicals, pro -life evangelicals simply won't vote, which I think is an unbelievable mistake because they feel it's principled not to vote for Trump because he said this about what DeSantis's view. On the other hand, let him think that and maybe it's true and let him act accordingly. It's like if we are so on the reservation, Eric, that they know they have our votes no matter what they do, the Republican Party will keep treating evangelicals and pro -lifers the way the Democratic Party treats blacks. That is, you have no choice where you're going to go, take whatever scraps we throw you. So no, I think it's good. Let him be a little afraid that we will go off the reservation. No, that's why I just said that. That's why I just said that. In other words, I actually believe that that's true because when you look at what happened in the last number of elections, there are many evangelicals who are so pious in the negative sense that they would say, I'm just going to sit home and I'm not going to vote because Trump had three wives and I'm going to let Hillary Clinton or Satan or Adolf Hitler take over America because I'm so pious that I won't pull the lever for somebody who doesn't agree with me on everything or who puts out mean tweets or says things I disagree with. That is effectively how we got Biden because we didn't have a serious situation that we're in. On the other hand, Mike Pence is saying that unless we give long range missiles to Ukraine so it can kill lots of Russians, we'll have to go to war with Russia because it will invade Poland. So in order to avoid war, we have to fight a war. It's exactly what George W. Bush said about Iraq, that we have to fight the terrorists over there so we don't have to fight them over here so they won't do 9 -11 again. Now we know now Iraq had nothing to do with 9 -11. It had no weapons of mass destruction. So he lied us into the Iraq war. In Vietnam, they told us we had to fight the Vietnam war so that the communists wouldn't take over Japan and then Hawaii. The whole domino theory is something that warmongers and the military contractors they work for, they whip it out every time they want to get us in a useless war. They say, well, remember Neville Chamberlain? Remember 1938? And I always say, remember August, 1914, when they blundered into World War I and destroyed all three of the main governments involved in it, all based on nothing, based on lies, based on garbage. Sometimes it's November, September, 1938. Sometimes it's August, 1914. And you're the idiot warmonger about to plunge the world into destruction because of your silly fantasies private about being a big man. Mike Pence is one of those warmongers and he's very dangerous right now. There's never enough time to talk to you, my friend. We'll get you back as soon as possible. Thank you, folks.

A highlight from John Zmirak
"Hey there, folks. Welcome to the program. I believe it's Monday. Chris, is it Monday? Check your watch. It is Monday. It's Monday. First of all, we decided to start the week off with a bang. His name is John Zmierak. Everywhere I go, people say, I love John Zmierak. I love John Zmierak. I say, you're welcome. Zmierak is awesome. We're going to talk to him about everything. He's like a human kraken, I like to say. Yes, like a human kraken. It has to be released carefully and not too often. We got Zmierak coming up. A lot of news here, folks, before we get to John Zmierak. Of course, we're going to talk to John Zmierak about all kinds of news. I'm not sure who we have in an hour or two today. It might be Rosario Butterfield, who has a new book out. And we have Jennifer Morris as well. It might be Jennifer Morris, who has a book out. Oh, my gosh, we got some heroes on this program. It's such a privilege over the years to have gotten to know these wonderful people and to have them on this program and to bring them to you, my listening audience or viewing audience, if you're watching this on on Rumble or or whatever. But OK, some big news. I believe I mentioned it last week, but my book Letter to the American Church has struck a nerve around the country. Thank God. And people are giving it to their pastors. And this has been going on for a year. I've never been busier, which is good and bad. So please pray for me because it's a stressful time. But the wonderful news is that a documentary film has been made called Letter to the American Church based on my book, Letter to the American Church. The trailer I saw the trailer the other day I was with Charlie Kirk at TPA USA Faith at a pastor's conference in San Diego. And I just want to say that the trailer is shorter than the film, but it's intense. And everyone raved about it. And I'm very excited about this. If you want to see the trailer, we if you get my email, which is the Eric Metaxas dot com, the newsletter, I'm pretty sure we sent it out this morning. It did go out this morning. You can also go to Letter to the American Church dot com as well. And we will be I'll be posting it on Twitter, probably on Instagram. But it's so exciting to think that the message, which I want to say is not my message, folks. This is what I believe God is saying to his people. And we are just his vessels. But it's about waking up the American Church in the way that the German church did not wake up in time. And that's a big deal. It's a very big deal that we would kind of act like, well, weird stuff could happen in the past, but, you know, everything's cool here. No, everything's not cool. And God is calling us to wake up and to get involved in everything. And, you know, it's an interesting thing because we know that the state, the government is not supposed to have any involvement in the church. We know that. But the church is supposed to have every kind of involvement in the government and politics. We who are in the church are supposed to bring God's values into every part of the culture to propose those values by getting candidates elected who share those values to the best of our ability. OK, we're not going to ever find a candidate that agrees with us on everything, but it's all very important and we're in a very, very crucial time. So the idea that this documentary will be out, probably.

"I'm talking to my friend Doug Giles. Doug, where can people find you? Because I you know, half the reason I have folks like you on is because I want people to find you and to get fed from the stuff that you write and the things that you say, because you're one of those voices out there. So how can people find you? Yeah, my Mr. Rogers neighborhood is Doug Giles, that's g i l e s dot org. And there you can find my art, my cigar company, my podcast, if you want to binge listen. And Eric, who would not want to binge listen to me? And you can find all the all the books and all the other good stuff there. OK, Doug Giles, dot com. It's g i l e s dot com. Well, but I mean. No, no, no, no, no. It's dot org dot org. Oh, I'm sorry. Dot org. Doug, I'm guy. OK, I don't know either. Doug, Giles, dot org. But well, because, you know, you're one of the rare voices that is talking about God's idea of manhood. And it is so vital right now, because as we were saying before, there are many people that they get a lot of it, but then they skid off into. I mean, if you think porn or objectifying women is OK, you're not a man, you're an adolescent. To be a man is to be like Jesus is to be mature. And we have a lot of adolescent men trying to pass themselves off as real men. They're not they're basically boys who never grew up. And that is not God's will for you. God's will for each of us is to grow into the full measure of manhood or womanhood. And we're living in a culture that celebrates adolescence. It's basically arrested development where we want to kind of keep people in that mode. And there's something deeply sick about that. Yeah, I think I think a lot of young men, they think, if I'm going to become a Christian, you know, I've got to get rid of my brains, hand over my cojones and morph into, you know, this this this dandy that's been, you know, exemplified to a lot of pastors. And I'm like, yeah, if you go to that church, you might have to do that. But in regards to in regards to, you know, having a true role model, it's incumbent upon the young male for him to really go through the scripture like I did in the book of Matthew and just look at the son of God. Listen to what he's saying and look at the example he's leading. That's not boring. It's not effeminate. It has nothing to do with how evangelical pastors have parlayed our sweet and cuddly little Jesus. This guy was crucified for a reason, and it wasn't because he's walking around over medicated, you know, telling, you know, these these stories like some unshorn Matthew McConaughey on a Bruce Banner weed trip. It's because he's getting up front and the Pharisees grill and he's rebuking bad politicians. He set an example for his disciples of sacrifice and love and take one from the team, take one for the team if necessary. And he confronts Jesus. He confronts Satan on a very empty stomach. That's not a boring Christian life. And if the young male is looking for an example, then here's my challenge to them. Why don't you stick your head in the Bible once you go through the book of Matthew? Take out a little chartreuse highlighter. And every time he does something that's funky, something that's weird, something that most Christians would never do or say. Highlight that and then start getting the revelation in your mind that he is very other than little Christian males. And he will give guys like Andrew Tate or or any of the macho macho guys run for their holy money in regards to exhibiting masculinity. It'll change. It'll literally change the way that you see the son of God. And you'll be able to smell a feminacy and you'll be able to smell the perversion of Christ when you when you begin to hear it and see it. And it'll cause you to again, I think, Eric, just like, you know, you've talked about, you know, it'll cause the prophetic edge to rise up in you. It'll cause you to speak out like never before. And it'll and you'll have a bunch of girls running behind you because there's very few Christian young males that have that kind of moxie. Now, I was going to say, wow, I'm sorry, we're out of time.

"I'm Gary McNamara. You know, I still shake my head over target because the whole thing about target already talking about their losses because of shoplifting to begin with. And then this whole thing comes out and it's just like you shake your head going. What are they thinking? And then this came out. When target approached the brand is it called to design clothing for its 2023 pride collection, the retail giant was fully aware of the brand's satanist inspired merchandise. Oh my God. And they knew it. According to a statement posted by the designer, targeted quote, target initially sold three products a messenger bag saying we belong everywhere across trans flag colors and planets, a tote bag with the message two queer for here beneath the UFO and a cure transphobia not trans people sweatshirt. Those three items are no longer for sale online. They were being sold online. Others that were not sold at target included satanist imagery and glorified violence against alleged transphobes. This is what the designer said when I was approached a great product for target they told me that my work, such as Satan respects pronouns, wouldn't be a good fit. They were observant enough and had the necessary critical thinking skills to realize that my use of occult imagery is as harmless as any horror movie targeted towards adults, but one in my collection for adults to be a little less gothic said the designer who was a self described gay trans man who goes by Eric. Who wrote in a series of Instagram stories, target did not respond to national news requests for comment to confirm the brand's characterization of the events. Maybe we need to have another meeting with him. That's the whole thing, you and I always talk about, okay, how does the meeting go? It would be a series of meetings. A number of people involved in making these decisions. That's what gets me laughing is knowing that

"If there's people out there like Eric who are just love leadership, love talking about it and would love to connect like I will make time for those phone calls. I'm not that busy. Those types of folklore. So I'm so glad you reached out. No, it's awesome. And I love, you know, I've noticed is I really become a student of leadership inside the church through your podcast and others that there's sort of like this, there's top down leadership in the church, and then there's bottom up leadership of the church. And I think one of the biggest mistakes, a lot of us make and leadership class or just in general, is we're sitting around waiting to be picked, right? Well, I can't really do much because no one's picked me. Well, you know, we're not in grade school. Maybe a grade school when they had two team captains with the soccer team and you didn't want to be the last one to pick because you felt like a scrub, right? Well that's not how it is. We've all been picked. Our father in heaven has picked each of us in the premortal life to do something pretty amazing, which is, you know, which is why we're here, you know? It reminds me of a book. If you don't mind, I'd really quick quote here by theory. Yeah, love it. Back from 2003 to BYU to gosh, so she says, you were recommended to help run the last leg of the relay. That began with how many. My sons ran track and I love relay races. There's so much fun. It's like a team track becomes a team sport when you run a relay race. Especially when you come from behind, right? Your pre mortal spiritual valor indicated you would have the courage and determination to face the world at its worst. To be fearless in building the kingdom of God, you simply must understand this because you were born to lead by the virtue of who you are, come to achieve the fact you're here in the 11th hour, almost done.

"So if you have gotten into the habit of watching shows and listening with that spatial audio where it bounces, audio off of the ceiling in the interest of sort of making you feel more of a surround sound experience. HomePod minis won't do that. And yeah, overall, these are more powerful devices, so they are going to sound better, but when we're comparing it between the first and second generation interesting the first generation sounds so much better. By the way, these will also work with an Apple TV. So if you have an Apple TV, you can use them as your home theater speakers. And you'll also get that spatial. Yes. And I have to give a shout out. I will say that when Apple first released a feature, it's an eARC feature. So that's enhanced audio return channel. Essentially what Apple said was you can use your homepods as the soundbar, so to speak for your television. And what would happen is you would have the Apple TV connected into that arc port on your television. And then when you were watching or playing a game on a PlayStation, then it would output the audio to the homepods. I was so skeptical of this and so ready to be disappointed that it was going to lag that for, I don't know, the first year that this was announced, I refused to use it, because I'm like, I'm just going to be disappointed. It's not going to work. I finally gave it a shot, and I kid you not. It works and it works very well. So I now are not at this current point, but when I got the projection television that I have now, the television I was using before, I was using the homepods with that ER functionality. And it worked great. And again, I was shocked at how well it worked. That's good to know, actually. Because you don't have an HDMI port, obviously. Right. It's basically sending it to the Apple TV and the Apple TV is then sending it to those homepods, but they can all communicate together to properly delay essentially the video so that it matches the audio. And then it all plays as it needs to. I was impressed. Let's briefly check in on Carmen sandiego AKA our driver, Eric, who is in the Gates.

Well, Eric, who are you going to have in studio and why is that relevant to January the 6th, Eric, who better than two of the absolute fan favorites on our show who were in studio with us on January 6th, 2021, Joe di genova and Victoria Thompson. Yes, indeed. We're going to go back in time. It's going to be like Doctor Who. It's going to be like the time tunnel. We are going to reprise what happened here on January 6th as we were witnessing what was occurring on Capitol Hill with the man who was former U.S. attorney. What is it the youngest U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia and his wife, formerly of the Senate intelligence committee Victoria Townsend. So Joe degenerate tansen, who are with us as the events of January 6th occurred, will be with us for the whole third hour to analyze what kind of things can we expect to see? In the 44,000 hours of footage, what kind of ramifications could they have criminally? Civilly, are we going to find out what lieutenant Michael bird was doing on the other side of that door? Remember, Ashley babbitt's death. We've only seen the footage from one side taken by that antifa rioter. What was his name, Jake something? Do you remember Jake? Did you just pull that out from your head? Yeah, I mean, he always made sure to mention his full name in the press release. But usually that's for like political assassins. They have three names. Sean Earl Sullivan. Lee Harvey Oswald. Wow, that's impressive. So you had the antifa guys footage, what does that antifa guy doing at a maga rally and then breaking into Congress and other questions that we need answers to. But what about the CCTV camera footage? Because we know there are cameras inside the hearing chamber. And that's where lieutenant Michael Byrd the man who shot and killed actually babbitt was when he drew his gun and fired through the window. Admitting in an interview months later after his identity was finally unveiled after 6 months, he said, no, I couldn't see who it was or what were they doing. I'd just opened fire. He couldn't see who it was or what they were doing. More than why did he pull the trigger of that weapon? What if it were a colleague? What if we're a child? What if we're a first responder? Well, now we may get footage of what he was doing on the other side of that window. Before he murdered Ashley babbitt. So much more to discuss. Oh, James O'Keefe has issued a 40 plus minute video of his resignation, his firing from project veritas.

"Children Ivanka and Don Junior are trying to qua subpoenas for their testimony from the New York attorney general whose investigating whether Trump's real estate business manipulated the value of key assets for tax and insurance purposes but will they fair any better than their brother Eric who was forced to testify the investigation in October of 2020 after a losing battle in court Joining me is former federal prosecutor Jennifer Rogers who teaches at Columbia law school Jennifer this investigation has been going on since 2019 What do you make of the timing of these subpoenas It is kind of interesting that it happened as the select committee is also ratcheting up its investigation and getting closer to the inner circle as well You do tend to hold the more important witnesses to the end because you want to gather as much evidence as you can gather your ammunition if you will before you speak with the people who are kind of central to the inquiry your target So maybe that suggests that he and her team are getting close to the end of the inquiry that they've now noticed the Trump kids So it might suggest that she's getting towards the end But hard to tell you know these investigative types are usually pretty close with devout housing or proceeding inside What are the trumps arguing to the court to try to get the subpoenas quashed They have tried to say that it's improper that the depositions are being noticed at a time when there's also a parallel criminal inquiry going on But you know this is not that a common in financial cases for example you will see a financial criminal investigation going on with the Department of Justice at the same time that the SEC may be investigating for civil case and those things running in parallel sometimes So it does happen There's no inherent problem with that Trumps are going to have to decide how they perceive knowing that any testimony they give in a civil matter can be used against them criminally or against the company criminally as it comes to that I wouldn't say it's commonplace oftentimes the criminal will take precedence and the SEC or whatever the civil entity is will hold but sometimes it does happen that they have been at the same time So I don't think an argument that there's something inherently improper about that is going to carry the day Are they alleging know that there's bad faith that the New York AG is trying to take their depositions so that that evidence can be used against them in the criminal case that she's also a part of Well they've been alleging that faith all along I mean that's basically Trump number one answer to anything against him whether it's a criminal inquiry as civil case it's always somehow politically motivated or in bad faith you know you just can't get around that argument They have a little bit of ammunition here I mean his James when she was campaigning made some ill advised comments about how she wanted to go after Trump and the fact that her team is working with the Manhattan DA on the criminal case gives these claims a little bit more gravitas than they might otherwise have but this is straight out of the Trump playbook It's a claim that this is all kind of bad faith political motivation These are two increase that have been going on for quite some time The Manhattan DA has been leading the criminal inquiry and then some of the 15 so apparently joined forces with them But you know again I can't see how that kind of argument is going to sway a judge for example to say that they can not be deposed in this otherwise legitimate civil matter just because there is an ongoing criminal inquiry And that's the risk that people take when they do things that open them up to civil investigations and criminal investigations Is it wise for them to testify in the civil case Knowing that a criminal case is being contemplated Well it's not wise for them to give up any information in either case if they can help it And that's why they're fighting so hard against it but ultimately they may be forced to do that And again they'll have to be quite careful because anything they say in the civil case will be able to be used against them But you know that's why you shouldn't lie That's why you have to be careful in terms of what you say but that's just the way the ball bounces if you've done things that are illegal and you've done things that's exactly you to lawsuits and then you're asked to come and tell us youth about them You know it's just all where they may on that one If they take the 5th and the civil case will that create an inference against them It does create an inference in the civil case Of course it can't be used in the criminal case That's everyone's system amendment right not too incriminate themselves But yes that's part of the challenge for them That's part of the pickle is that they have to decide whether they want to refuse to testify because of potential criminal liability And by the way that could have been the case regardless of whether there's a criminal inquiry or not If they know the same did things as part of their work at Trump work that subjected them to potential criminal liability somewhere somehow down the road there doesn't have to be attending inquiry for them to claim their Fifth Amendment privilege but they have to think about that whether they want to do that or not because then you can get that influence in the civil case Thanks Jennifer That's Jennifer Rogers of Columbia law school Coming up next how many years could Elizabeth Holmes spend in prison and where

Well, the wind is blowing a strong wind, unreal, the level of paranoia and willingness to go along with mask mandates, no matter where you are, are the circumstances. You can get the rest of my comments. Yeah, No kidding. Yeah, well, that's that's I don't think that's um, mandate thing as much as it's a disease thing. It's people. You know we would play the Bill Maher clip. Last week. Hey, Democrats, how come 70% of your side? Believes that what 50% of people die from Covid or whatever the crazy numbers were.

So the most excellent Cavan, whose been researching stuff on Covid have some stuff from him coming up later, he says Scott got is dead wrong on school mandates and that sort of thing.

Most excellent Eric, who writes that in this was a really interesting heroic thing. There was one doctor at the FDA in the sixties. I guess it was Who refused to approve thalidomide, which ended up causing thousands of horrible Brooke defects in Europe and almost none here because the the company snuck some doses in here, essentially, so we never did approve the little mind and fen phen was never approved to be used together. The diet industry was doing that off label and as soon as the heart problems Popped up. The FDA did the right thing and bandit. So, um, I get the point that the government is ineffective and all, but those examples were ill considered, and I apologize for them and hereby retract them formally, according to the Geneva Convention. Have been stricken from the record. So the least one vaccine got full FDA approval yesterday, so I don't know if that comes sitting people down about the vaccine or not.

Have sent every piece of information to New York so that they can try to get me there. Trump reacted to the latest development with a lengthy written statement. Calling the investigation off political and partisan witch hunt, adding, there is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is in desperate search of a crime.

Since her countless others. It brings you describe all sadness to know that the BBC's failures contributed significantly to her fear, paranoia and isolation that I remember from those final years with her. What's that is the most is that if the BBC it properly investigated the complaints and concerns first raised in 1995. My mother would have known that she's being deceived on Prince Harry here in the US saying Our mother was an incredible woman who dedicated her life to service. She was resilient, brave and unquestionably honest.
