A highlight from Jeremiah: A Burning Word
"Jeremiah, a burning fire. We still have about two more messages in Judges, but that'll have to wait towards the end of October because the next two Sundays, and I'm just saying it now so don't forget at the end, Pastor Theron is going to begin a series on Amos, and so he'll be preaching the next two Sundays, and then I will finish out Judges, and then he will close out the Amos November series 5th when I'm in Nicaragua, but an opportunity to walk through that Old Testament book, and I'm looking forward to him preaching, for us getting to be able to sit under that for a whole series on the book of Amos, excited to learn what he has to share there. As I mentioned, Jeremiah and the idea of a burning fire, and just as we start out, I just want to make a statement that I think we all know, but God has not promised that we even will grasp exactly how what we do and experience functions and fulfills his great purpose. He hasn't promised that it's easy, and he hasn't promised that we will necessarily understand every component, but he has promised this, that what we do for him will be eternally fruitful and that he will make all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. The idea that it's not always easy and that it doesn't always make sense, if you turn into the Old Testament and look at the prophets, one of the prophets that exemplifies that truth so well is Jeremiah. He's described by some as the post -Christian prophet, the one to preach to post -Christian times. He's a man who was the unwanted yet truthful voice of God in his era. He was called to preach repentance to an unresponsive people. He confronted ungodly kings, untruthful prophets, and unfaithful people. As he states in Jeremiah 2 13, in a very clear illustration, he says, For my people have committed two evils. They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water. He's constantly called to preach to a hard -hearted people for them to turn from this world's broken and false replica of a God to the only God who redeems the only God of life. It was a message largely unheeded by Judah, a message of judgment that saw fulfillment in Babylonian destruction and captivity, which was a reality that broke Jeremiah's heart. Irving Jensen says this, By divine design, it was Jeremiah who was called to prophesy in the darkest hours of Judah, when Judah as a nation died. He is known as the weeping prophet and the prophet of the broken heart, but he wept not for his own trials, grievous as they were. It was the sins of his nation and the fearful destruction these sins were bringing upon them that broke Jeremiah's heart. So as Francis Schaeffer notes, Jeremiah provides us with an extended study of an era like our own, where men have turned away from God and society has become post -Christian. And it's to this type of people, this ministry, that the divinely called Jeremiah struggled at times to understand and accept his role in giving God's message. He preached 50 plus years going through, I think, four different kings. He faced opposition and derision, and at times he wondered internally with why God has called him to this task. He wrestles with that thought continually throughout the book. But it is in those instances of distress that we get a window into the prophet's soul showing the deep personal price that he has to pay for his faith and his faithfulness. And it's to one of these that we're turning this morning, chapter 20 of Jeremiah, to see that battle and understand what it means to truly have a burning fire in your bones to proclaim God's truth, no matter the response or reality in which we live. My goal with this whole message, one, as we walked as a church in ordaining Pastor Theron to the gospel ministry is to be a call in his life that no matter what comes up that the Word of God is a burning fire, but it's also a call to us as a church to have a burning fire, a truly burning fire that we cannot but proclaim Christ no matter what we encounter in this world. So we encounter Jeremiah in the midst of one of his sermons or oracles preaching the destruction of Judah at the temple, and this is around 606 BC during the reign of King Jehoiakim. If you've ever read Jeremiah cover to cover and you're wondering if it's a chronological history, it is not. So it is based on these sermons and how they fit together and the message that God wants to bring. It's not always set in chronological order at all. So this is early on in Jeremiah, 1914 and 15. It says this. This is his message. Then came Jeremiah from Tophet with the Lord had sent him to prophesy and he stood in the court of the Lord's house and said to all the people, by the way, he was a prophet and a priest. Thus say at the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns, all the evil that I've pronounced against it because they have hardened their necks that they might not hear my words. And he is a weeping prophet, a broken prophet. He's the prophet that had to preach to people who didn't want to hear what he was saying because they had other prophets saying, don't worry, we're going to be fine. It's not going to be a problem. We're going to get over this. We're going to prosper. We're going to be victorious. And he is almost a singular voice during this time saying, no, that's not what God said, that God has something else for us. Well, a man named Pasha, who is both a priest and the chief officer, here's Jeremiah speaking and he has Jeremiah whipped in scripture. It says he's beaten and really likely what Jeremiah received at that time were 40 lashes based on what Deuteronomy 25 three would allow. And so when you see that he got beat, it's not a whipping or two, but instead a formal punishment that took place. And then it says that pasture placed him in the stocks where his hands, feet and head were placed through holes, which contorted his body and caused extreme pain. Where is he placed in the stocks? It's not in prison, but it's at the gate. There's stocks at the gate. It's the Benjamin gate, upper Northern Benjamin gate because they wanted everyone to see what happens to someone that confronts them and speaks of God's judgment. Jeremiah is released the next day and instead of backing down, he renames pasture to Magor Miss Abib and you, you get extra chicken if you remember that at the end of the service, what his name was. But it means this terror on every side and, and what Jeremiah was saying was he was reiterating his message. He says, pasture, you're going to see your friends struck down on by the sword. You're going to witness people you know, hauled off to Babylon. He himself will be hauled off to Babylon after seeing the Babylonians take all the wealth of Judah and Jerusalem and that he would ultimately die there and be buried with the friends to whom he pasture had prophesied falsely. I want us to see as he's coming out of the pain and punishment, what he did yet those strong and bold words from Jeremiah were not all he was feeling or experiencing. The rest of the chapter deals with a cry to God saying that the mocking and the disrespect and the ridicule or are wearing on him. He preaches God word and it says he feels like it's become a reproach and the reason why people attack him. He wants to stop speaking God's word but realizes that he cannot stop speaking because that truthful message is in his heart and not speaking God's word creates a burning in his bones and what they're trying to say is there is such an intensity that you cannot stop a burning word that he must preach no matter how his world responds and so with that burning word in perspective, we take a moment to see and recognize what can waylay us from speaking it. For Theron, I kind of specifically kind of diving in for him on this. What can knock you off course? What are things that can come in and recognizing what they are from Jeremiah's circumstances and then seeing how they are overcome and so as we look at Jeremiah's circumstances, we must first recognize the potential pressure. Jeremiah 21 through six, it says, now, pasture, the son of emir, the priest who was also chief governor in the house of the Lord, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things. Then pasture smote Jeremiah the prophet and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the Lord, and it came to pass on the morrow that pasture brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him and pastures thinking that Jeremiah is going to recant. He says, the Lord had not called by name pasture, but Maggore, Miss Abib. For thus say at the Lord, behold, I will make thee a terror to thyself and to all thy friends and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies and then I shall behold it and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, which is the first time he names the oppressor that's coming in a specific way and he shall carry them captive into Babylon and shall slay them with the sword. Moreover, I will deliver all the strength of this city and all the labors thereof and all the precious things thereof and all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall spoil them and take them and carry them to Babylon and now pasture and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity and now shall come to Babylon and there thou shalt die and shall be buried there. Thou and all thy friends to whom thou has prophesied lies. And if you think Jeremiah is a coward and I want you to make sure you get this image correct in your mind as we walk into where his, his struggle comes, you recognize that after being beat 40 times, put in stocks for 24 hours, that when you're released and the first thing you say is what I said is right and let me get very personal and let you know exactly what's going to happen to you. You recognize that this is not a coward or a weak man. What we see is that Jeremiah encountered significant pressure or pushback from the world of his day. They're not pleased with what he's saying. He's actually accused of being a traitor. They wanted to kill him for committing treason because he preached what God had said and Later on in his ministry, beyond this beating in the stocks later on, they're going to throw them in a pit that has water in it. It's sinking constantly to let them drown in a very slow way. The reality of God's truth though, is often those who need it and who we are striving to reach hate it, and that's something we have to accept as we bring truth that the world doesn't love truth, that the world is not enamored with truth. They're not sitting there saying, Oh, everything makes sense to me, but instead they will come after truth with some of the ugliest hate possible. They can resort to violence and physical attack. Many of us cannot fathom the idea or that reality. We don't see that in our world and in our, in our country, but we know that around the world fellow believers face physical attacks for believing and preaching God's word. I read the voice of the martyr and go through it and I'm just shocked by different sufferings that people walk through. I just read of one where they lock Christians up in sea containers in the middle of the desert and give them meager rations. You imagine how hot that gets in there and the suffering that is faced and yet those people remain faithful to the word. There is a potential for physical abuse. This world hates the message of truth that God has sent to it. Now, along with that physical abuse, one that we probably will encounter more quickly, we find psychological stress. Don't lose sight of where he was put in the stocks. He's in the north gate off of the court of the Lord. So at the temple, they have punishment designed to be public and they're taking a man who is both a priest and a prophet who's preached God's word, who knows that truth, and they've made a public example of him and they've set him up to be ridiculed. He's sitting there. Later on, Jeremiah will talk about the fact that he hears many whisperings. In this chapter alone, and we'll see it in the next segment, he talks about this idea that his closest friends have denounced him.

A highlight from Doug Groothuis
"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. Folks, welcome back. In a few minutes, I'm talking to Doug Groth -Heiss. We're talking about seven sentences on world religions. This is going to be fun, I guarantee it, but right now I get to continue talking to Roger Stone because my producer was out of the room and he couldn't stop me. Roger, it is so much fun to talk to you. You were just making the point about DeSantis and the loyalty thing. Look, I take that very seriously. I don't think DeSantis is a bad guy. I think he's been a great governor, but I really think that it was a tremendous miscalculation on his part. Probably, and you know this, it's not even probably, people with a lot of money who really hate Trump, they did the hard sell on Ron DeSantis. You must do this. We will back you. You can't fail. But he does seem not to have the je ne sais quoi that you have to have if you're going to be a force in politics in America. And he does come across as wooden and I just think it's a pity. I hope he remains governor of Florida for a long time. He's a wonderful governor. But it is so strange to me that people who just can't abide Trump did this and really put all their eggs in that basket. I guess I would argue, first of all, that likability is an absolute key factor in American politics. Ronald Reagan had it. Donald Trump has it. Ron DeSantis does not have it. There's nothing likable about him. There's nothing warm. He's socially awkward. He's very, very strange. He's either an introvert in an expert's business or perhaps he's on the spectrum. I'm uncertain, but it's impossible to warm to him and his physical mannerisms are very weird. The other thing, though, that is even more problematic is I'm going to argue with the assertion that he's a good governor. He took nine and a half million dollars from Florida Power and Light and we got a 22 percent electricity increase, the largest single increase in state history. If your home was destroyed in one of the two recent hurricanes and you don't like what your home insurance company is offering you to replace your home or, say, your roof, you no longer have the ability to sue them. That's because of a bill that Governor DeSantis signed after taking four and a half million dollars from the insurance companies. He's been a he's missing in action as governor. The state has an insurance crisis. The state has a malaria crisis. The state has a growing crime crisis. And the governor is in Iowa trying to make his last stand. By the way, he's term limited, so he's in his final term as governor. He cannot run again. And I think he's very badly damaged his brand back here in Florida. Now, I did not think that the voters would care about the loyalty factor, but I was entirely wrong about that.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Kurt Schlichter, author of Overlord, eighth in the series. Check it out. I'm hearing great things about it in the People's Republic series. Kurt, thank you for taking the time. Kurt, I was thinking who could we have on the show that's not going to hold anything back. Make our audience laugh about the Shakespearean tragedy and drama that we are witnessing. Kurt, how should we think about what is happening right now as we speak? Motion to vacate of Kevin McCarthy. Well, the whole thing reminds me of the sin of Onam. I think, you know, I'm trying to keep it FCC compliant here, Charlie. I'm an army guy. I want to know what the objective is. I don't like Kevin McCarthy. He's not my pal. I am completely indifferent to what happens to him. He is a tool in every sense of the word, but mostly to be used for an objective. What's the objective? Matt Gaetz. Why now? Why here? Why this? I know what the plan is. To the extent is it starts with vacating the chair. And step two, we're going to skip over that. And then step three is some better situation happens. I don't understand the plan. I understand that we've got a presidential primary going on. While we are talking about this, we are not talking about the lawfare against President Trump. We are not talking about the candidates and their policies. We are not talking about the Hunter Biden revelations that even The Washington Post can't ignore anymore. We're not talking about Jamal Bowman, who can't figure out the difference between a door and a fire alarm. I actually believe him there. I do think he is that dumb. Instead, we've got Matt Gaetz being followed by hundreds of regime media reporters who for the first time ever are thrilled to ask what Matt Gaetz, a hardcore conservative thinks only because they think it's going to cause chaos among the Republicans, which it is. And he appears to be eating this up. He appears to be loving this. He appears to have a personal beef against Kevin McCarthy. Not sure that his personal beef should have any play in here. Look, I'm all about winning. I don't understand how that wins. I haven't had a good explanation of how vacating the chair wins. Again, not a pal of Kevin McCarthy. It's not my favorite guy. I don't like him. I don't love him. But he's over Matt when Gaetz tosses him out with the help of the Democrats, who will never do anything that's good for the Republicans. So you could tell, you know, it's an important indicator. If the Democrats are united behind you in doing something, that's when you think, huh, maybe this isn't such a great idea. So I'm, you know, I'm concerned with winning legislative elections in Virginia, where we have to show people who have doubts about conservatives that we can govern. I'm concerned about winning in Kentucky, where we have a very important governor who's very likely to have to replace Mitch McConnell, whose health is failing. I want to, you know, is this going to help those things or hurt those things? What's the answer? I don't you take a giant leap to do something that hasn't been done in 113 years. You know, I'd like to know what the plan is. Am I crazy? No, no, there is no plan. And I understand the anger from the base. I'm going to read some emails here, though, Kurt. And I know and I get it because we have been betrayed on every major issue. So I get it. I feel the same way. I'm not even trying to do happy talk. I'm not trying to do. I'm just asking, guys, before you storm the Bastille, what's next? And there is this there's this amazing dialog that happened. I'm trying to remember what New York City liberal was, but it was the Black Panthers. I think I think I had you on once and we talked about this. So the Black Panthers came to some sort of white liberal cocktail soiree and all the white liberals were like fawning over them, the Black Panthers, best thing ever. And some brave soul, you know, listens to the speech and the Black Panthers say, we're going to burn it all down. We're going to do this. And somebody asked the question, they said, but but what next? And the Black Panther responds, he says, well, you can't know everything, man. It's like, OK, hold on a second. Like, let's climb up, like let's I get the anger. I understand it. But here's let me just read some of these emails here, because, again, I have received thousands of very nasty messages, not even because I'm saying we shouldn't be doing this. I'm saying that this has probably not been thought through, like just what the one, two, three, four is. Right. So I'll read one of these emails here. Right. Charlie, the time has come to burn it all down. They're all the same. It can't get any worse than what we have. What is your response to that, Kurt? That's about the stupidest thing I've ever heard. And I think we need to sugarcoating it with our people. OK, I've been in the ruins of a civil war. It gets a lot worse. We have problems here, you know, and I find it interesting that guys like you and I, who no one is going to mistake for a squish unless they are actively stupid or think the listener is actively stupid, are saying, wait a minute, stop it. We need a plan. We need a direction. We need to figure out what the heck we're going to do. And it can't just be, well, let's just see what happens. Let's toss this guy out with no idea who follows. You know what's going to happen? A bunch of Republican squishes, the same one the base is infuriated at, are going to get together with a bunch of Democrats and they're going to put in a squish Republican speaker like they got down in Texas, the same kind of creep who was behind impeaching Ken Paxton. And then they're going to go, I can't believe it. You know, I keep thinking of that meme, the guy riding on his bike and he's saying, dang, these Republicans, they're screwing everything up. He sticks some between the tusks, folks in his wheel. He raps, he goes, oh, they're really annoying. Look what they did to me. The anger is understandable. And yes. And but so some I could read I could read, by the way, the audience is ninety nine percent in the direction of vacate storm, the best deal, take the head and all that. But let's let's just go through a fact, which is that the people that will be voting for motion to vacate, you know, they say they've been live to him betrayed and I'm going to take their word at it. Right. I'm not there. They are. I'm not going to. But they will they will vote with that. They will vote for every Democrat. So is it correct, Kurt, to say that this is a gift to the Democrat Party? Well, the Democrats sure think so. Democrats are excited about this. Every single Democrat wouldn't be voting for this thing if they didn't think it was good for the Democrats. That hold on, hold on. You know, that sounds obvious, but time out, time out. Say that again, because that that that that's not Barry the lead. OK, hold on. I want you to repeat what you just said. Say it again. Every single Democrat would not be voting for this if every single Democrat did not think this was good for the Democrats and bad for us. That sounds so obvious, but because the Democrats never vote against their own interest ever. No, no, they don't know about their political party interest, not the interest of their constituents, of their power. No, I look I think you're right. And I, you know, I'm. I understand people are frustrated. Grow up. We have a four seat majority of one house of the Congress. OK, there are a bunch of reasons why that's true. Many of them the fault of our own party and our own choices and actions. But that's where we are. You know, I can't believe why isn't he decreeing blah, blah, blah. Because, you know, maybe you should have paid more attention that that Schoolhouse Rock. I'm just a bill thing because it's it doesn't work like that. We have got to make incremental movements. We are not going to make this is this is not going to be a giant sweeping cavalry charge. This is going to be bayonet fighting inch by inch. And sometimes you're going to lose ground. Sometimes the bad guys score points. The goal is to move forward, but you never move forward by losing. I don't want to make any broad proclamations, but we will. It looks like we're not going to have the House next year. I'm just going to tell you right now it was this is not making it more likely for most of our audience doesn't care. And they're telling us and that's not what they will. But they will. Once they abolish the Electoral College, I'm going to get a lot of e -mails. Yeah. Well, I can't believe I'm doing this. Well, believe it. And you thought it was a great idea. No, I would rather not be in the I told you so mode. I know I get it out. I know when when Washington, D .C. becomes a state, I don't want to have to replay this segment. I don't. Yeah, exactly. Guys, think. I just want to make sure everyone's clear. I share the anger. I share the volcanic eruption against the unit party. Let's be smart. Let's ask ourselves, is there any downside to letting our emotions govern our behavior?

"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. Someone has to convince President Biden that if he runs again, he's going to go down in history as Ruth Bader Biden, the person who doesn't know when to quit. I do intend to file a motion to vacate against Speaker McCarthy this week. The only way he loses his job is if a handful of Republicans join up with the Democratic Party to fire him. That would be a disaster for the future of the Republican Party. Now, from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Can everybody sort of cool it with the attacks against Matt Gaetz right now? What is going on? I'm telling you what, nothing upsets establishment Republicans more than disruptors. I suppose that's why they despise Donald Trump. I suspect the same people, many of the same, not all, but many of the same people who are attacking the Freedom Caucus, the Ralph Normans and the Matt Gaetzs and the Marjorie Taylor Greens, the same people who hate them, hate Trump. You know, we all sit around, we talk a good game about fixing Washington and trying to stop the out of control spending and flushing good money down the drain after bad and getting some fiscal responsibility going. But then when somebody tries to do it, we lop their heads off. We want it to be business as usual. Now, let me qualify. If you're not following this, this has been a wild weekend. Matt Gaetz went on TV saying, I'm going to try to lead an insurrection against Kevin McCarthy. We're going to have an ouster of Kevin McCarthy. I'm going to get him out of there. I'm going to get Democrats to side with me. There's all kinds of reporting that he's even offering subpoena power to the Democrats because he really doesn't like Kevin McCarthy. We get it. Kevin McCarthy gets it. Matt Gaetzs has never liked Kevin McCarthy. These guys are going to be butting heads forever. OK, so be it. McCarthy led to the...was able to avert a government shutdown with no funding for Ukraine. I think that's a win. I don't know that it's a win with a capital W, but it's a win. We got through it. With hours to spare. So Matt Gaetzs is livid. I guess he wanted a government shutdown. OK. He's an elected representative. He's representing his constituents in Florida. He can feel the way he wants to feel. And, you know, if he wants to take on Kevin McCarthy, all right, so be it. Might not be a great idea. It seems to me Republicans have some momentum right now, and this threatens that momentum. But having said that, I don't know why people on our side are attacking Gaetzs the way they are. Mark Levin, who I consider a friend, I actually love the guy. I think Mark Levin is one of the smartest guys around. He's calling Matt Gaetzs a traitor. Literally a traitor. Mark Levin posted of Matt Gaetzs, This clown is a Benedict Arnold. He killed a CR slashing spending by 8 % and strengthening border security. Now he plots and schemes with the most radical Marxist Democrats in the House, including AOC and the Progressive Caucus. Reject this demagogue. He is the uni -party leader, and he has no intention of cutting spending or securing the border. Boy, that seems a little harsh, don't you think? I mean, Trump is the ultimate disruptor. And it's going to be fascinating to see what exactly Trump does with all of this. Now he's in New York today trying to ward off this wack job, you know, civil suit against him. And he's sitting in on day one of his trial. But here's what Matt Gaetzs said on CNN over the weekend as a result of Kevin McCarthy heading up an effort to avert a government shutdown. It apparently enraged Congressman Gaetzs, who took to CNN and said this. Speaker McCarthy made an agreement with House conservatives in January. And since then, he has been in brazen, repeated, material breach of that agreement. This agreement that he made with Democrats to really blow past a lot of the spending guardrails we had set up is a last straw. And then overnight, I learned that Kevin McCarthy had a secret deal with Democrats on Ukraine. So as he was baiting Republicans to vote for a continuing resolution without Ukraine money, saying that we were going to jam the Senate on Ukraine, he then turns around and makes a secret deal. Now, I know you and I probably have different views on U .S. involvement in Ukraine. But however you think about that question, it should be subject to open review analysis and not some backroom deal. So a motion to vacate tomorrow? I do intend to file a motion to vacate against Speaker McCarthy this week. I think we need to rip off the Band -Aid. I think we need to move on with new leadership that can be trustworthy. Now, this gets complicated because Speaker McCarthy is going to have to rely on Democrats to come to his rescue. If enough Democrats side with Matt Gaetz, guess what? McCarthy might be out. And you could have an argument, we could have a solid substantive debate about whether that's good or bad for us. You know what's good for us? I don't think there's any dispute. Disruptors. Do you want more of the same? Are you OK with business as usual in Washington, D .C.? Are you satisfied with the way things have been going? With the reckless spending and the over -the -top nonsense like writing Ukraine a blank check. I have to tell you, with the exception of Mark Levin, and I have tremendous respect for him, I don't know what's up with why he would call Matt Gaetz a traitor to his country. Matt Gaetz may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought this is a time where we all agreed that we needed some disruption. I thought this was a time when we expect fighters in Washington, not people who are going to play footsie with the Democrats. And most importantly, I don't like, pardon my metaphor here or my imagery, but I don't like hearing people urinate all over the millions of people who are lifting Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene and the other fighters in Congress up. What does that say about what those of us with a platform think of millions of people who want a good old -fashioned street fight in Washington over out -of -control spending and fiscal irresponsibility? I mean, I'm not trying to be wishy -washy on this. Again, I think McCarthy has done a pretty solid job as Speaker of the House. It can't be easy. It's not easy. You've got a lot of warring factions within the GOP, and the problem is the Republicans have some momentum right now. And I don't want to see anything interrupt the momentum heading into November. We've got an important election in Virginia. We've got big things coming. I just, I'm absolutely mystified at the vitriol that a lot of people are demonstrating towards Matt Gaetz. I don't think that's helpful. I don't think that's productive. Can't we disagree respectfully? Because I have a lot of respect for the millions of people, many of whom listen to this show, who believe that disruption is in order. I have a lot of respect for people who appreciate what Matt Gaetz is trying to do. Even if it may be the wrong outcome, even if I might disagree with trying to oust Kevin McCarthy, I don't like the wild -eyed attacks that I'm hearing directed towards these renegades in the House. Because I just think it's very, very disrespectful to millions of people who appreciate what Gaetz is trying to do. Now, do you agree with this or not? We've got a lot of text messages already pouring in on the MyPillow text line as we kick off the first Monday in October. It's October the 2nd, 2023, here in the Relief Factor studios. Here's where people are texting me right now. Here's Pennsylvania. I don't want more of the same. I think Mark Levin is a warmonger. Here's Colorado. I 100 % agree with Mark Levin. Matt Gaetz seems like he's a glory hound who hates McCarthy. He wants to oust Kevin, but he has no plan to replace him. And finally, people are attacking, this is from Ohio, people are attacking Matt Gaetz because he's an idiot. And the people who voted him in are idiots. He just wants to make a name for himself, hoping to be governor of Florida. Well, what do you think? Let's find out. I want to open up the Ph .D. weight loss and nutrition phone number to you. 800 -655 -MIKE, 17 past the hour. Do you understand my point about respectfully disagreeing with what the Freedom Caucus and the others are doing with McCarthy without taking their heads off? Do you agree with me that Matt Gaetz reflects the disruptor status that Donald Trump gave us and why we love Donald Trump? Does that make sense to you or am I missing the boat here? Straighten me out. If you disagree, you go to the top of the line. But however you feel, I want you to join us. Flood the zone here with your phone calls. I want to jam our phone lines with your voice, with your perspective. Again, the Ph .D. weight loss number is 800 -655 -MIKE, 800 -655 -6453. Hope you join us.

A highlight from S13 E16: Oliver: Writer, Producer, and Novelist Spotlight
"Hello, welcome to The Loney Show. I'm your host, John Mayolone. In this episode, don't have regulars, because raisins, as always, unfortunately. As for our guest, he's from Portland, Oregon, currently living in Los Angeles, California, and he is a film producer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Oliver Tutill Jr. Well, thank you, Peter. It's actually Ted Hill Jr. But thanks for having me on your show. I'm excited to be here. Anytime. So, how's life? It's good. It's really exciting. I love the film business. I've been in the business for quite a while. And it's very exciting meeting different people, talking to different producers, actors, filmmakers, editors, composers, business financing. It's all very exciting. You meet a lot of very interesting people that are very involved in their work and are very creative. Ah, very good. And have you been up to much recently? Yeah, we've been pretty busy. My company's name is Cinema Development and Writing Services. And my business partner is Tara Walker. And what we do is, when we started out, we've had our business about a year now. And anybody that's curious, they can just go to cinema wds .com. That's our website. And what we do is, we work with novelists, and we adapt their novels into screenplays. And then once we've adapted them into screenplays, we've been asked by our clients to, well, can you place this with Hollywood companies? And we said, well, yeah, we probably can, you know, we weren't doing that. We're primarily focused on writing, but we started packaging, which means that we started putting together like a deck of electronic brochure that shows the actors we thought might be good for the role, and what the director is. And then we present it to different production companies, different producers and finance companies in Los Angeles, and sometimes in New York as well. Okay, very nice. And what inspired you to start all that? Well, I think I started out in the business, and so did Tara, we were both actors. And we enjoyed that. But it's, it's very, very tough. Getting regular work as an actor, you go through good times, and then there's these long stretches where you don't have much work. And so we said, Well, how can we get more involved in business? And so we both decided, well, why don't we become producers? So Tara started her own production company years ago called Alpenfest films. And then I started, I started out making a production company called Autumn Tree Productions, where I, at that time, this was in the late 1980s, I pretty much focused on making educational films, and actually was pretty much on emotional child abuse. And I did that for 10 years, I had a lot of success. A lot of my films, educational films are used in universities and colleges and many institutions. And after doing that for 10 years, I wanted to segue over into doing commercial motion pictures and, and documentaries. So I started a company called Bluewood films. And under that name under that company, I produced quite a few films and documentaries and pleased to say that some of them are on streaming platforms now where people can can see them. I just have my newest release was just last month. It's called Crazy Horse of Life, featuring Russell Means, the late Nakoda actor who did very well. Right, then. Very good. And have you ever considered like, releasing any of your work on an international level? Yes, I mean, Crazy Horse of Life is available internationally. They can definitely time to be TV so anybody can go to to be TV and anywheres in the world basically and watch it for free. It's ad supported. And then we've got another film called the right to bear arms, which is a dramatic crime feature starring john savage. And that's available on Amazon Prime and Amazon freebie and also on to be TV. And we've got another film that's distributed internationally. It's also on to be TV. It's called the Loch Ness Monster of Seattle and it features Graham Green, the Academy Award nominated actor from Dances with Wolves. It's been doing very well. My distributor is very pleased. He just sent me a letter the other day and he said how happy is that how well it's doing. So those those three films are available now. We've got new ones that are going to be coming out later this year. We're excited about. Wow, fantastic. So where would you see yourself 20 years from now? Well, that's a good question. And 20 years is a long time. But I would say in 20 years, I'd probably see myself and Tara, my business partner, our own company now, but probably producing eight to 12 motion pictures a year. Also, I'm a composer too. So I probably, I haven't been doing my composing recently, but I've, I've scored a lot of motion pictures and documentaries. And it's a matter of fact, Crazy Horse of Life. The score I did that score and I did actually I wrote the score years ago, but it's used in this big feature now and I scored the movie right to bear arms as well. So but 20 years, I want to still be producing movies and helping actors and helping create jobs for people that work in the industry. You badly because they can't get work. Yes, of course. So I want to provide jobs for people. And also, I'm a novelist as well. And I hope to have a few more novels released. I just had my first novel released by awesome Achilles publishers, which is their home offices in London. So it's definitely an international release. And it's called when the sunlight goes down, goes dark, excuse me, when the sunlight goes dark. And it's about a young, young boxer living in Los Angeles, who has to deal with unscrupulous promoters. And one of the one of the supporting characters in the book is a man from England who who wins one of the heavyweight titles. It's also a book that it also covers worker exploitation, family dysfunction, spousal Okay, fantastic. Yeah, let me just mention, Peter, that people can look at it to go to the website for the book. It's when the sunlight goes dark .com. That's the website for the book. And it's also available on amazon .com and Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, any bookstore, you go into any reputable bookstore, and they can order it for you. All right, then very good. So in terms of your written work, besides what, besides the novels you've just written, are there any more novels you're yet to write or have released? I do have one novel. It's called primordial division. I'm searching for the right agent to rep it. It's kind of a crime horror novel. It's also set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. And it's about a woman who has the ability to see the future. She's kind of one of these mind readers and the kid, the male protagonist is able to, he's got the power of telepathy. Very good. And it's set in the context of the entertainment industry. Oh, nice, nice. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? I'm sorry, say that again, Peter, a 14. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? Oh, a 40 minute presentation? I could give it on, definitely, I could probably give it on, I made educational films for 10 years. So I could do on an education, I could do one on the film business. They cover all the aspects of the film business from development to pre production to production to post production, exhibition and distribution. I could do that for you. I've been in the music business since I was a kid. So probably give you a one on that as well. So, okay, very good. What which recent news story have you found most interesting? That's a really great question. The recent most recent news story that I found the most interesting probably would be what's going on with our climate and what's happening to the earth in regards to the climate crisis that's happening in the world today. That's that's one of them, I guess I know it's a big topic, but it definitely stands out. I'm also fascinated by what's going on in American politics today, who's running for president and what's going on in Congress in the Senate. And I'm also very concerned with the state of our country, you know, and how divided people are and how unhappy so many people are. Yeah, absolutely. I was gonna also say to my friends who are very struggling because they have kids, and it's hard for them to get daycare for the kids. So I have one friend, she had to give up work because she, she couldn't afford to hire a babysitter or a nanny or daycare. So yeah, she had to give up her job. Oh, no, that's just sad. Very sad, very sad, the income inequality in this, in the United States. I'm not an expert in your country, but in the United States, it's very sad to see so many people that are divided by class. Wow, I thought the UK was bad. I didn't know that the US has got bigger problems given its size. Yeah, there's a lot of problems. Definitely. We've seen the erosion of the middle class here. You know, it's been kind of disappearing for years. And the income inequality that exists in this country, it's pretty bad. And as well as you know, there was a, I was watching, I was watching News Nation the other night and the big story presented by Chris Cuomo, who's an interesting newscaster, whose brother to his brother to the former governor. And he his top story was these kids that these babies, basically, the toddlers and daycare that died from fentanyl overdoses. And he's all over that. And I'm thinking, yeah, that's, that's tragic. But a lot of people don't want to address what's happening kids into this country, they have many kids suffer from abuse, and how they it's very difficult for them to thrive and survive become and constructive citizens. That that puts something into the country that helps it grow more. Yeah, absolutely. You know, I can share one thing with you, I used to be a teacher. And I taught drama at a film school and a college, as well as film production. And I had a class, this is in Seattle, Washington. And I had a class where I had a quite quite a number of kids that were African American. And I'll never forget this, Peter, because like, they would come to class, sometimes the girls would be crying and go, what's wrong? She go, Well, Joey got killed last night. He said, What are you talking about? She goes, Yeah, Joey, you know, he got on the top of he got on the roof of Dan's car and Dan shot him to death. I said, Oh, you don't read about that in the paper. And then then another day, a girl came into class, she was weeping. I said, What's the matter? And she's when my sister was killed last night. I said, Well, what happened? She said somebody shot to her living room window, and she was killed. You don't read about it in newspaper. Just people don't know about that. Exactly. Yes, indeed. It's the media these days, they only want to show what they really want to show. They don't show the important stuff that goes on like poverty, financial crisis or things that impact a lot of people in this world. Absolutely correct. Yes, you're right, Peter. They don't know it's funny, funny because Chris, it's not funny, but I found it interesting. Chris Como mentioned one night on his show on news nation, he, he mentioned that people don't want to talk about class warfare in this country, you know, what's going on between the classes between the wealthy and the poor, or the struggling lower middle class, you get an idea of it. And now with all the strikes that are going on, you get the writers Guild of America on strike. You've got the screen actors Guild that's going on strike. Now you've got the United Auto Workers going on strike, and it's getting bigger, that strikes growing. And if that strike goes all out, it's going to, it's going to play havoc on the economy here. Yeah, absolutely. What do you disagree with most frequently? What do I disagree with most frequently? Probably people that say everything's going to be great. You know, you just have to hang in there. And also, I find myself disagreeing a lot with financial advisors who say, just, you know, keep it where it is, you know, don't sell, just stay steady, keep your bonds, 40 % bonds or 60 % bonds, 40 % stock or 40 % bonds, 60 % stock. I disagree a lot with financial advisors. Not that I'm an expert in finance, but I'm fascinated by it. I read about it. Absolutely. How much time do you spend on the internet? How much time do I spend on the internet? A fair amount, because I do a lot of research on the internet. And while I'm something to do research on something particular, then then you find, wait a minute, I've got to have to research this more. Then you find yourself going to another page, finding more things to read about. And then you realize you're going to be searching even more on the internet. So and to be honest with you, I spend so much time on the internet as it is on zoom calls. I'm tired of looking at the internet. I prefer reading books. So I read a lot of books. But I've got to use the internet a lot to do research. You know, especially I work with a lot of people that I've got to find out what their background is, you know, in the film business, and the financial business. So I do spend an enormous amount of time on the internet. I imagine you, you do yourself, I'm sure. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Hours upon hours. Yeah, it's a it's a necessity. It's a necessity today without a without a cell phone or computer. It'd be very difficult to survive. I do know some folks in their 70s and 80s. They don't use computers, they don't use cell phones. I do know one young guy who doesn't use a cell phone, but that's very unusual. But it's very hard to survive. I couldn't stay in business if I couldn't use a computer and cell phone. Oh, yes. Sure. It's the same for you. Yeah, of course. The internet is such a necessity. It's part of our lives, in a way. Absolutely. Yes. It is. It's built in. And you read about these kids, you know, they get addicted to their cell phones and computers. And there's so many psychologists that predict they're gonna have trouble with their personal relationships in looking at a screen. They don't spend time in person a lot. I don't know how that'll play out, but it makes sense in a lot of ways. What a world filled with clones of you, what would a world populated by clones of you be like, a world populated by I'm sorry, what what would a world populated by clones of you be like? You mean point of view? And a world populated by clones of you? What would it be like? Oh, clones of me? Yes. Okay, what would I think it would probably be a pretty peaceful world. To be honest, I don't think there'd be any wars, I think war would end. I think children would, we'd set up some type of educational system and change some values in the government in the country so that kids don't get abused, that parents are afforded the education and the training, starting in high school. Probably actually, I take that back, starting in grammar school. How to parent, how to treat other human beings, learning about themselves, becoming self intelligent, learning emotional intelligence, understanding their emotions. And growing up to be citizens that are productive and have empathy for other people. And if this happened, we could, I believe we could end this may sound naive, but I do think we could end poverty in this country. But there's no will to do that. There's no will to help kids because children can't vote. And they're not members of political action committee. So I would, I would make sure that their political action committee is available for children. I would allow children at a certain age if they can show that they have some knowledge about the political system, to have a say in voting, to see who represents them. And I believe with education, and with treating people well, with respect and compassion, having people trained for the type of work that they want to do, that poverty could could be eliminated. And so there are a lot of clones to me, there would be no more wars. And there would be a lot less suffering in the world. Yeah, that sounds that sounds like a very good reason. Thank you. Welcome. What's Education is the key. Education is the key and law. The merging of law and education. And again, unfortunately, the people in power, the bureaucrats and politicians don't have the will or the desire to bring about the needed changes. Yeah, it's so sad. What is your favorite quote? Yes. And probably, I guess it's a quote that is on my mind a lot now, because it's a quote I used to open my novel when the sunlight goes dark about the boxing family in Los Angeles, and the quote is, Oh, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, that I am so meek and gentle with these butchers. And it originally that quote is taken from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar when Mark Anthony is standing over the dead body of Julius Caesar and Caesar has been assassinated. by members of the Senate. And he's bemoaning the fact that he's so meek and gentle with these butchers because he's kind of going along with them at the time. And it's just a quote that just stands out to me because I've used it in my book because I my books about worker exploitation in one way because a lot of these boxers are exploited. And a lot of them end up in not very good shape. Because people aren't looking out for him. So I guess for today, that's my favorite quote. I mean, I have others too. But I guess for today, that's the one that would be my favorite. All right. Very good. And I could you could use that metaphorically, too. I mean, the sense that, you know, Oh, pardon me, you know, why aren't the people that are running the government trying to help the people? Yes, that's a very good question. I'm sure you've run into very similar situations in England. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. All the time. What's improved your wife quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? I'm sorry, Peter, you have to say that one more time. All right. What improved your life quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? well, Oh, I would I would say I spent a lot of time in therapy. I came from a very dysfunctional family. I suffered a lot of abuse, I was put into a private boarding school where kids got regularly beaten very badly. One of the lucky ones, really, I never suffered any permanent physical injury. But I think if I hadn't gone into therapy, and I was in therapy for decades, I'd say that probably the key to my being a functioning productive adult today, that in a book I read, called compassion and self hate, written by Theodore Isaac Rubin, that book changed my life. I never thought a book could change my life, but that one did. Yeah, of course. That and of course, if you're going to be successful, you have to you have to work hard, you have to know where to put your effort, you have to work hard and you have to think smart. I mean, that old saying about if you work hard, everything will fall into place is not necessarily true. I've known, I've had guy friends that have worked hard all their lives, and they've got nothing. Yeah, absolutely. So you got to work smart, as well as hard. Yes. But the more success you realize, it just adds to your happiness and your fulfillment. Yeah, of course. But people need the basic necessities have to be taken care of. You got to have clothes, you got to have proper shelter, you got to have decent physical health. I don't think I've ever met anyone that's happy if they haven't had good physical health. Yeah, of course. How did you spend your last birthday? Well, my last birthday, I had dinner with my business partner and my best friend, Tara Walker. We went to a really nice restaurant down on the beach, had a great dinner. And then went home and watched a really great movie. And it was a great day. And you know, I talked to a lot of friends and family too. I got a lot of calls. Okay. That's cool. It was fun. Oh, yes. It was quite a time. Yeah. You like birthdays? Yeah, I like birthdays. It's pretty cool, I guess. It's funny. I was just reading about Jimmy Carter, you know, the former President of the United States who is a president. And he's going to be turning 99 here in a couple days. And someone called him up, one of his family members said, I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. And he said, that's, that's not real good. I'm not really excited about this birthday. I didn't know you even make this far in his life. Yeah, he's going to be 99 years old. And you know, he's been in hospice for seven months. Everyone thought he was going to pass in about two or three weeks and he's still going. Madness. Amazing man. Absolutely. We could use a young Jimmy Carter today. That's for sure. Uh huh. Yeah. That'll be something. It would be. Yeah. Yeah. What's the best way to start the morning? The best way to start the morning is to eat a good breakfast. I know so many people that don't eat breakfast. They have health problems, they're overweight. And I don't mean starting breakfast, you know, eating junk food. You gotta eat something healthy for you. Eat something healthy. Write down the things you need to do today if you have to make a list. Yeah, it helps me a lot before I go to bed to write it to do this. So when I wake up in the morning, I know exactly what I got to do. And I got to feel the body first. You got to take care of the body. I have a friend of mine who's, he had a stroke and he's in the hospital now. He can't barely move. And, you know, he, he didn't have the right diet and he's still a fairly young man. It's very tragic. So feel the body and feed it well. Yeah, absolutely. I'm sure you know, because I could tell you put a lot of hours on your show. Oh yeah. It's, it's quite a process, but it's definitely worth it. Yeah, it's enjoyable. Yeah, sure is. If you could travel back in time, what would decade you want to live in? There's so many decades I would love to live in. There's so many centuries I'd love to live in. It's really hard to pick one, but if I had to pick one, I'd probably say the early 1960s. Sixties? That's pretty cool. Yeah, that's when Muhammad Ali came on the scene and that's when the Beatles came on the scene. To me, that's, I think we'll never see the likes of the Beatles or Muhammad Ali again. Yeah. So one of a kind, they always say. Yeah, but I, believe me, Peter, I'd love to live, I could go back to ancient Rome and be fascinated. Of course, your life expectancy wasn't very long. Oh yeah. Cause Sanitary wasn't up there and the advancement technologies got in the way. Yeah. Everything's like, ugh. I would love to live the life of a Plains Indian in 1840. I think that would be fascinating. It's freedom that people can barely conceive of today. And what a great, got the kids, Indian children back in those days, man, talk about having a great childhood. Yeah, absolutely. And that is all we have for this episode. It was great having you on Oliver talking about your works. You're welcome. And until next time, stay tuned for more.

The Senate is expected to quickly take up a stopgap funding bill that cleared the House earlier today. The question is on agreeing to the Speaker's approval of the Journal. Those in favor say aye. Those opposed need plenty of the Chair, the ayes have it. The Journal stands approved. The House passed that 45 -day stopgap funding bill, 335 to 91. With overwhelming Democratic support as dozens of Republicans voted against it, White House official indicated President Biden would support the bill, which includes disaster relief and FAA authorization. Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith is requesting a gag order against former President Trump. It would limit what Trump could say publicly about the ongoing criminal cases against him. Smith initially asked for a limited gag order, but updated the request on Friday, citing Trump's threats against witnesses. Last week, Trump claimed General Mark Milley had committed treason and should be executed in the gag order request. Smith argued no other criminal defendant would be permitted to make such inflammatory public statements.

David McCormick: Bob Casey Has Supported 98% of Biden's Policies
"Could not put your finger on a single thing that he's done from from is what arguably one of the most significant states in the country, the birthplace of our country and a battleground state. But here's the thing, Mark, that is just shocking. Under Joe Biden, Bob Casey has voted 98 % with Joe Biden. He's a rubber stamp that has over and over again supported the policies that are taking our country in a terrible direction, whether it's the border, inflation, law and order. And so this is emblematic of someone who's not actively fighting for the interests of Pennsylvania, but has essentially adapted of the terrible policies of Joe Biden. And that's why I believe that when presented with an opportunity to vote for someone who's going to fight for them, who's an independent leader, who's going to fight for the people of Pennsylvania and who's going to act as a leader, I think that there's a real chance that Pennsylvania's will will make the different choice. And I'm going to work hard during their vote. Well, the Democrat ruling class in Pennsylvania is frightened of you. The governor put out an edict, which is intended to harm your election chances, automatic voter registration. He did it without any legislation from the legislature in Pennsylvania. That's directly aimed at you, I believe. case In of the Bob Casey, what he does is he overwhelms the airwaves. It's very expensive in Pennsylvania. You have all these these big cities, but you have these sort of cluster areas of big cities with suburbs. And so the media market is very expensive, and he expects to overwhelm you with all kinds of donations from Schumer, the hard -left Democrat billionaires, and all the rest of it. And this is why I've endorsed you, because I think you're good you're on the issues, a good debater, and you have at least some finances, significantly so, to take
A highlight from Kevin McCullough
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas Show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -Lug himself, Eric Mataxas. Hey folks, welcome to the program. If you're like me, last night you were able to watch the debate and you deliberately skipped it for your mental health. That's just where I am in life right now. I caught parts of it which made me wince and cringe, sometimes wince and cringe. I never wept, but you know what, it's probably better for me to find out what my guest thought. He may have watched the debate. My friend, Kevin McCullough, we call you votes tridamus because you are a prognosticator, a seer, a prophet politically speaking. Kevin McCullough of that Kevin show, how are you? I'm well and I can see some things very clearly today. There should be no more debates. These exercises in futility, and that's what they've turned into, are becoming embarrassing to the cause of what this election should be about. And last night, it's just hard to put into words how bad this debate was, from its execution to the policies, to the answers. It was just nothing good about it. Some people in my audience care about this. I'm in Irvine, California. I'm in a hotel room you people can see. I'm speaking today, so today's Thursday in Costa Mesa. So if anybody wants to come and hold my hand and hug me about the sadness of the debate, or just talk to me or get book signed or whatever I'm going to be tonight in Costa Mesa, you go to my website, ericmataxas .com, and you can see me and talk to me and hang out and whatever tonight in Costa Mesa. This is Thursday, folks. And tomorrow, there's a prayer breakfast here in Irvine that I'm speaking at. But the reason I bring this up, Kevin, is because I rarely have time to turn on the TV. And last night, I realized, oh, I'm pretty wiped out. Let me turn on the TV. Let me just look at the debate just to see. I literally really couldn't bear to watch it. So as someone who watched it, I'm talking to you. Am I being cruel or unfair? Because it was unfair. What little I saw was genuinely unbearable. No, as I was saying just a second ago, from the way it was structured, to the execution, to the answers to the substance, the format's wild and out of control. There's not really a possibility of getting very deep on any one of the single questions. And I think a lot of the questions that are being asked are not the right ones. And so as I've watched, and I didn't watch all of last night's debate in real time, I caught up on a bunch of it after the fact. But as I've sat through both of them now, it is easy for me to ascertain that no one in this field on that stage last night is serious about becoming president. And they're not biting into the enormous lead that the former president has only built on since the first debate occurred. The first debate, they had 11 million viewers put to put that in perspective, Eric, in 2015. For the first debate, they had more than 15 million viewers in 2020. For the first debate, they had about 18 million viewers. You're talking about a diminishing return a, a much less interested Republican base watching these, and they're not they're not going anywhere. And in the meantime, it's putting even with some of our better idea people on display as amateurs, even with Doug Burgum on the stage, hard to believe. Yeah. That would be like a rematch between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson. You're telling me people, Lisa Hutchinson was not able to be on the stage this time, as far as we know. Yeah, I think he took a, he took a face shot in the early rounds, and he was in his dressing room. Honestly, the thing there, what I said on Twitter this morning, was that they acted like it was 1985. We are living in a time in America, where most people see, we are in freefall, hell has been unleashed. Things have gotten so bad on so many fronts that it is, if you don't believe in God, which I do, and I trust in him, but if it weren't for that, I'd be scared to death. What is happening in this country? And they acted like it's 1985. And we're gonna, we're gonna have this conversation. And I thought, this is this is bad. I mean, the way the the deep state has been weaponized to go after Donald Trump, for example, I don't care if you're running against Trump, if you like Trump, but if that doesn't strike you as, as fundamentally un -American and sick as anything, as though, you know, we were being bombed by China, it's pretty bad. They seem not to be concerned. Well, they're responding to questions that have been supposedly thoughtfully put together by the moderators that are doing the debate. And Ron DeSantis did a little bit more of this last night, all of them to have done more of this, where he actually came with a little bit of an agenda to give little speeches every time that he was given the opportunity to speak. And he got more things out on the record than what he was asked about. But that should be the strategy of every candidate going into every debate. That should be the strategy of every thinker going on every media outlet that you can. Sometimes, Eric, it's better for me to go on Fox or Newsmax or somewhere and have something that I'm more intent on saying that what they want to ask me about. And if you're, if you're running for president in times of crisis, and I don't, I don't view the period that we're in right now as a peaceful time. We're not actively at war with anybody, but we are actively at war with evil on, on almost every front. So we need, there needs to be an urgency. There needs to be a sense of, we cannot phone it in and do it like we've done it in the past, especially knowing that we are going to run up against probably illicit, illegal, cheating schemes, trying to keep the election from actually being determined by the people that have the right to determine it. And before people criticize me for that, we've replaced the population of the bottom eight states in just illegal entries into the country over the last three years. Well, let's do that in a minute, because you wrote an article at townhall .com. That is one of the stunning nightmares that they acted like not, not really a big problem. But what you just said about cheating, I think most Americans know the Democrats cheat at elections. How is that not the most important thing to discuss when you're talking about a presidential election? Are you and I imagining, are millions and millions and millions and millions of Democrats actually cheat? Now they've done it for decades, but now we know that they have turned it into a science. They are at war with we, the people, they don't actually care about winning in a fair way. They just care about winning. How is that not unbelievably important and something that has to be discussed? But the Fox hosts and the Latina from Univision, which is another bizarre thing, they seem to act like January 6 was Trump supporters being violent. They seem to act like the election was fair. Biden won. What world are they living in? All of them. I don't know what to say. And obviously, I think Vivek and Ron DeSantis, they're the only two candidates that I can take seriously. I've got problems with them a little bit. But the whole thing was like, they were all play acting like we're living in a different America than the one most of us are living in. Well, I will hold one exception out to what you just said. And I believe that Nikki Haley had a sense of urgency about her last night. And she did in the first debate as well. And I think that's why she's now out polling DeSantis in several polls, is that people are beginning to understand that as a former governor, she probably has a shot at the VP pick. I don't think the VP pick is going to come out of this group. But if Trump did want one that I'm seeing kind of be serious on the issues that are the most pressing, she's the one that kind of gets the vote in terms of... I think of her as deep state, neo -con, next. All right. That's fine. I'm just saying in terms of her performance thus far. We've got you our wonderfully. I'm so glad that we do. We'll be right back.

A highlight from 1415: Bitcoin Will Soon Hit $500,000 - Winklevoss Twins
"Welcome everybody to Crypto News Alerts, the number one daily Bitcoin pod. In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest Bitcoin technical analysis as Bitcoin recaptures $27 ,000 and quoting Max Keiser, the high priest of Bitcoin, Bitcoin is the North Star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation, confiscation and censorship preach. Also in today's show, Ethereum futures ETFs can start trading as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts, we'll also be discussing the SEC pushing back the deadline for spot Bitcoin ETF apps, definitely not a good look. And speaking of ETF apps, I'm also going to be sharing the five highlights of Gary Gensler's evasive testimony before Congress quoting Senator Warren Davidson. Gary Gensler's tenure at the SEC highlights two key problems. Number one, Gary Gensler's problem and number two, the SEC's structural problem. That's why I introduced the SEC Stabilization Act to fire Gary Gensler and restructure the SEC. Let's freaking go. Also in today's show, crypto analyst Michal van de Poppe predicts a very positive quarter four for 2023. I'll be sharing his targets in which he outlines. We're also going to be discussing the SEC's inaction on the spot Bitcoin ETF is a complete and utter disaster, according to the Winklevoss twins. And speaking of the Winklevoss twins, I'm also going to be sharing with you their $500 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, which they say is coming soon. 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 cryptonewsalerts .net. Again that's cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome everyone. This is pod episode number 1415. I'm your host JV. Today is September 28, 2023 and Bitcoin is finally back above 27 ,000 as we're pumping right when I hit the live button. We're currently above 27 ,100 up over 300 % today and we continue climbing. Welcome everyone in the live chat. I gracefully appreciate y 'all. Yeah, who knows? Maybe we'll hit 28 ,000 by the time today's live stream is over. Let's see. And make sure to let me know where you're tuning in from in that live chat as I'll be giving everyone a shout out towards the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's dive into today's market watch. As you can see here, every major crypto back in the green. Bitcoin above 27 G's. We got Ether up three and a half percent trading at $1 ,655 BNB, XRP, Cardano, you name it. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we're currently sitting above $1 .07 trillion with about $26 billion in volume in the past 24 hours, Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and even the Ether dominance on the rise today at 18 .5 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, holy moly, compound up 20 % trading under 49 bucks, followed by Thor chain up 13 % trading at $1 .94, followed by Lido Dow up 8 % trading at $1 .59 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, massive gains, which we love to see, especially after a pretty bearish altcoin season to say the least. We got CompLead in the pack here as well up 20 % and Rune up 13 .4 % and RLB up 13 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 46 in fear yesterday at 44 last week, a 47 and last month, a 39 in fear. So there you have it, fam. How many of you are currently bullish on Bitcoin and how many of you took advantage of the recent dip? If so, let me know. It's good to see we pump in once again. So hopefully those positions are now in the green. Now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis, check out the charts and why specifically the market is pumping right now. Here we go. Let's get it. Bitcoin hit new weekly highs after the September 28th Wall Street open as markets awaited fresh cues from the US Federal Reserve. And here you can see in the Bitcoin one hour Campbell chart, pretty freaking bullish to say the least. Data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin price strength staging a comeback, having delivered what some referred to as a classic pump and dump 24 hours prior during the performance. Bitcoin hit a high of 26 .8, which appeared on Bitstamp as a result of 2 % daily gains before Bitcoin retraced all of its progress, then a slower grind higher than took hold with the bulls edging closer to 27 ,000, which we finally just recaptured here a few moments ago. Now GDP for quarter two grew by 1 .7 % year on year below the projected 2%, while the PCE index data for August came in in line with the expectations, quoting analyst Keith Allen, bring on the volatility. Now meanwhile, data from Binance's order book uploaded by Allen showed little by way of resistance standing in the way of the spot price under the 27 ,000 mark. So as you can see, just more bullishness for the king crypto, the macro data constituted just the prelude of the day's main event. Meanwhile, Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve due to the comment later on today, Powell, whose recent words failed to deliver noticeable volatility to the crypto markets was due to speak at the Fed's conversation with the chairman, a teacher town hall meeting event in Washington DC at 4 p .m. Eastern today. Now commenting on the state of play on Bitcoin markets, popular trader Dan crypto trades was a little more optimistic around the strength of the day's move compared to yesterday, September 27th, quoting him here back to yesterday's highs, but with considerably less open interests. No doubt there is longs chase in here, but it is less frothy than it was yesterday. Would still like to see longs chill out and not get to a full retrace later on. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts. Meanwhile, quoting another analyst, right, capital Bitcoin is right back at the bull market support band cluster of moving averages, challenging to break out beyond them. Let's freaking go. Now, elsewhere in the day's analysis, he acknowledged that 29 ,000 could make a reappearance and still form a part of a broader come down for BTC. As he shares here, it's important to remember the Bitcoin could technically rally even as high as 29 ,000 to form a new lower high, which would be phase A and B. He explained alongside this chart. So there you have it. Let me know if you are currently more bullish or bearish on the King crypto and quoting the high priest of Bitcoin, Max Kaiser, Bitcoin is the North star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation confiscation and censorship preach. Now welcome to y 'all just joining us in today's podcast. As always, I appreciate everyone's daily support and means the world. And now let's discuss our next story of the day as Bitcoin continues to pump, shall we? We're going to be discussing the Ethereum futures ETFs, which can get approval. They say potentially as early as next week. So let's break this one down, shall we? Ether futures ETFs could start trading for the first time in the United States as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts on September 28th, which is today, Bloomberg intelligence analyst, James Safart said in an ex post, it was looking like the sec is going to let a bunch of Ethereum futures ETFs go next week. Potentially. His comments were in response to fellow ETF analyst, Eric Balchunes, who said he was hearing that the U S SCC wanted to accelerate the launch of Ethereum future ETFs quitting him here. They want it off their plate before the shutdown, he said, adding that he's heard various filers updates on their documents by Friday afternoon so they can start trading as early as Tuesday next week. As outlined here on X. Now the U S S government's expected to shut down at 1201 a .m. Eastern on October 1st. If Congress fails to agree on or provide funding for the new fiscal year, which is expected to impact the country's financial regulators amongst federal agencies. Now neither specified their sources for the latest update on the long list of crypto ETFs in the queue. There are currently 15 ether futures ETFs from nine issuers currently awaiting approval. According to the analysts in a September 27th note, which is yesterday, companies proposing an Ethereum futures or hybrid ETF product include VanEck pro shares, grayscale volatility shares bitwise direction, as well as round Hill. The analysts gave ether future ETFs a 90 % chance of launching in October with Valkyrie's ether exposure on October 3rd, quoting them here. We expect pure Ethereum futures ETFs to start trading the following week, thanks to volatility shares actions. However, we don't expect all of them to launch. So do note that now as previously reported that ether futures ETFs may be approved in October causing the 11 % spike in ether prices and probably why the Ethereum dominance is up as it's been stagnant and down for quite some time. Ether prices are on the gain, currently just under $1 ,700 and we'll see how high we continue to pump, but do note crypto future products aren't as hotly as anticipated as their spot based alternatives. There are already been Bitcoin futures ETFs approved in the United States since 2021, which is a fact, which leads us to the million dollar question. Why have they approved a futures ETFs, but continue to deny and delay all the spot ETFs? We're going to be getting to that a little later as I share with you the highlights from Congress pressing the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. It's going to get very interesting here in a little bit, but now let's dive a little deeper and discuss specifically the spot Bitcoin ETFs and what is happening and why they're being pushed back and the latest updates of where we're currently at. So here we go and welcome y 'all just tuning in. Make sure to smash that like fam. The US SEC has delayed deciding whether to approve or disapprove spot Ether ETFs. And like I said, we're going to be getting in October potentially get some approvals, but in separate notices filed September 27th, the SEC said it would designate a longer period on whether to approve or disapprove these proposed changes. The commission finds it inappropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change and the issues raised there within. The delay came the same day as the NASDAQ market filed the proposed rule change with the SEC for listing its mix ETH basically ETF, a combination of Ether holdings and futures contracts and also proposed rule changes with the New York Stock Exchange, ARCA for the Grayscale Ethereum Futures Trust, hashtag Bitcoin Futures ETF and the CBOE BXE exchange for the Franklin Bitcoin ETF were all filed. September 27th, that's right. If you're not familiar with Franklin Templeton, there are one and a half trillion dollar asset manager. They're also applying for an ETF. Now the SEC announced September 26th, it would designate a longer period to decide on these spot ETF applications. And as James Safart shares here, here's VanEx delay as expected. So another one, I mean, exactly what we were expecting from the SEC. Now in August, ARK investment manager, founder and CEO Kathy Wood speculated that should the SEC move forward with the spot ETF approvals, it would allow multiple listings simultaneously to avoid giving any single company an advantage over another in the market. Her remarks came before Grayscale Investments won a court battle with the SEC over its spot Bitcoin ETF app, which will likely be reviewed in which they're trying to turn their GBTC product into a spot ETF. So hopefully it happens. To date, the SEC has never approved the spot crypto ETF in the United States, but has allowed the listing of crypto linked futures ETFs and a leveraged Bitcoin futures ETF. Manipulation, fam. The next deadlines for the spot crypto ETF apps from firms, which include the largest asset manager in the world, BlackRock, Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Valkyrie, Bitwise and Fidelity are all scheduled for October. So we'll see how this is likely to play out considering October is now only three days away. Are we going to get some ETF approvals by then? Who knows? I think more than likely they're going to push it back again. However, Congress right now is pressing Gary Gensler to approve a spot Bitcoin ETF and ETPs immediately. So now let's break this down. If you missed Gensler, he was pressed by Congress just yesterday. And I know it's on everyone's mind. So let's break down some of the highlights from this recent hearing with Congress and the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. Let's break it down, shall we? Here we go. Blame for kneecapping capital markets in the U .S. and slam for dodging questions around Bitcoin and Pokemon cards. SEC chair Gensler appears to have had one hell of a grilling from Congress this week. September 27th, the U .S. SEC chief again found himself in front of lawmakers in a scheduled hearing to discuss his agency's oversight of the markets. Here are some of the highlights. First and foremost, you are the Tonya Harding of security regulations. We should create a Gary Gensler diss track, right? One of the more colorful analogies came from U .S. Representative Andy Barr, who accused Gensler of kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with regulatory red tape. Barr referred to the old testimony from Gensler where Gensler argued that the U .S. is the largest, most sophisticated and innovative capital market in the world and that shouldn't have been taken for granted as even gold medalists must keep training. With all due respect, Mr. Chairman, if the U .S. capital markets are gold medalists, you are the Tonya Harding of securities regulations. Ouch. You are kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with an avalanche of red tape coming out of your commission. Preach. Barr is presumably referring to a scandal where U .S. ice skater Tonya Harding, I'm sure you all remember the story, I was a kid when this happened, and an assailant to attack her rival Nancy Kerrigan in the lead up to the 94 U .S. Figure Skating Championships and Winter Olympics. Kerrigan ended up not competing in the U .S. Championships and here is John Dickens who shared it here. Mr. Barr to Gensler, it's hilarious, you gotta watch these clips for yourself if you haven't seen them. So the next highlight, I wish the Biden administration would say, you are fired. That's right, shout out to Warren Davidson who also ripped into Gensler saying he hoped that the Biden administration would fire him. Powerful words. Davidson accused Gensler of pushing a woke political and social agenda and abusing his role as the SEC chairman. Preach. Massive shout out to the senators here doing their job. Damn good job. The U .S. Representative added that he hopes that the SEC Stabilization Act he introduced with fellow representative Tom Emmer could make it happen. Quoting him here, you're making the case for this bill, which is the SEC Stabilization Act. Every day you're acting as a chairman, he concluded, and Gensler wasn't even given a chance to respond. Now next highlight, Gensler reiterates Bitcoin isn't a security. That's right. When asked by U .S. House Committee Financial Services Chair Patrick McHenry whether Bitcoin is a security, Gensler eventually relented stating the Bitcoin didn't meet the Howie test. Quoting him here, it does not meet the Howie test, which is the law of the land. Then McHenry suggested Bitcoin must be a commodity, which Gensler avoided answering. Mr. No Clarity Gary, hence how he got the nickname, saying the test for that is outside the scope of U .S. security laws. Mr. Gensler, we're living in a clown world with this guy. Henry also suggested that Gensler try to choke off the digital asset ecosystem facts and refuse to be transparent with Congress about the SEC's connections with the FTX and former CEO SBF facts. Gensler also wasn't given the chance to respond to the claims made by McHenry. Next highlight, are Pokemon trading card securities? Gensler says it depends. Can't make this stuff up. Quoting Representative Richie Torres, I cross -examine SEC Chair Gensler about the term investment contract, which is key to determining his authority over crypto. Gensler struggled to answer basic questions like whether an investment contract requires a contract. His evasions are defeating and damning. Suppose I was to purchase Pokemon card. Would you constitute a security for this transaction? Gensler responded, well, I don't know the context before eventually concluding it isn't a security if you purchased it in a store. And then Torres asked if I were to purchase a tokenized Pokemon card on a digital exchange via the blockchain. Is that then a transaction? And then Mr. No Clarity Gary said, I'd have to know more because I don't know anything. Yeah, you can't make this stuff up. Gensler then explained to it when it's investing the public can anticipate profits based upon the efforts of others. Then the core of the Howie test, which it is, Torres called Gensler's evasions as damning to say the least. And the next highlight, a sign of defiance. Meanwhile, amongst the back and forth cross examinations between Gensler and representatives, the eagle eyed observers noticed a Coinbase stand with crypto logo behind the SEC chairman. Isn't that interesting? The Coinbase led initiative is a 14 month long campaign that launched back in August aiming to push crypto legislation in the United States. Coinbase also ran a stand with crypto day, which took place in Washington, D .C. September 27th to advocate for better cryptocurrency innovation and policy. So again, shout out to Warren Davidson, Tom Emmer, all the senators for holding Gary Gensler accountable. Hopefully they do something about it. What's your thoughts, fam? Do you think Gary is likely to listen to them and follow their instructions and approve a Bitcoin ETF immediately? Or do you think he'll continue kicking the can down the road as long as possible until he leaves his position as the chairman of the SEC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's break down the latest prediction coming from crypto analyst Michael Vanay Pop for some price actions for Bitcoin for the fourth quarter, which we are currently in for 2023. Then we'll break down the latest from the Winklevoss twins and their five hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price action as the price action of Bitcoin continues to pump, baby. Let's go. Here we go. Let's break this baby down. Crypto trader Michael Vanay Pop is expressing bullish sentiment on Bitcoin in the coming months. Despite the recent struggles in a new video, he says that Bitcoin is on the cusp of reaching levels that offer accumulation opportunities per inch. According to the analyst, the trader Bitcoin could subsequently start an uptrend. Ultimately, Bitcoin is into an area of consolidation here, which makes it very likely we're going to have to retest here at twenty five, six and twenty five eight. If we are having a recess in that region, then there is this zone where I want to start buying my entries because of the recess, which is the ultimate recess. And if we're not going to get that, the flip to twenty six thousand five hundred, that is going to be the area where I think I want to activate my positions as well. And then we can start targeting twenty eight thousand. And then we can also start targeting the higher numbers, thirty thousand dollars plus or even more in the projection of quarter four. That is going to be very positive overall. Let me know if you agree that we'll have an overall positive quarter as we about to enter October. Let's go. Vanay Pop also says Bitcoin's current price action is similar to what was witnessed in the prior pre halving year, quitting him again. As long as we stay above the 200 week exponential moving average, we most likely are going to continue to the upside. And it starts to be very comparable to the period that we witnessed in 2015 and 2016. In this case, we needed it, but we started to consolidate and start to trend up afterwards. It is very likely to this period to slowly but surely the price starts to crawl up. And then we are going to have a case of the upside in the markets overall. And to watch this video analysis, the analyst did check the show notes below the video in the description. It's entitled Bitcoin price. I am looking to buy. So there you have it. And let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts and are you currently bullish on the King crypto or do you think we're going to dip and test the lower levels? Let me know your honest thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day. And the Winklevoss twins on the spot, Bitcoin ETF continuously being basically denied and kicked back and pushed back for the past decade. And then we're going to dive into their half a million dollar Bitcoin price prediction and why they're so confident that the Bitcoin price is going to hit their big target. So here we go. Let's discuss them with the SEC first. This was a story which was, let's see when their tweet was actually, let's scroll down. This is Cameron Winklevoss. This was actually on July 1st, it got 1 .1 million views. Now let me read the tweet. Today marks 10 years since Tyler and I filed for the first spot Bitcoin ETF. That's right. Over a decade ago, the SEC governor's refusal to approve these products for a decade has been a complete and utter disaster for US investors and demonstrates how the SEC is a failed regulator. Here's why. They protected investors from the best performing asset of the last decade. They pushed investors into toxic products like the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, GBTC, which trades at a massive discount to NAV and charges astronomical fees. They pushed spot Bitcoin activity offshore to unlicensed and unregulated venues. They pushed investors into the arms of FTX, subjecting them to one of the largest financial frauds in modern history. Preach. Maybe the SEC will reflect on its dismal record and instead of overstepping a statutory power and trying to act like a gatekeeper of economic life, it'll focus on fulfilling its mandate of investor protection, fostering fair and orderly markets and facilitating capital formation. This would have led to much better outcomes for US investors. Preach. In the meantime, best of luck to all those fighting the good fight to bring the US spot Bitcoin ETFs to life onwards. So much respect. I mean, 10 years of denying this ETF. I mean, you can't make this stuff up. I think they shared perfectly some of the reasoning. It's to hurt the investors and keep you poor and keep you wrecked and keep you desolate and dependent upon a broken government that threw us overboard so frickin long ago. So much respect to the Winklevoss twins. If you didn't know, they're the owners of the Gemini exchange and they were the very first ever to submit the spot Bitcoin ETF app to the SEC over a decade ago. And obviously they're sick and tired of Gary Gensler, his no clarity and his shenanigans. Just like the rest of us, it's time to fire Gensler. If you think Gensler should be investigated and potentially fired, let me know in the comments right down below and I'll be reading your comments out loud here in a little bit. Now for our breaking story of the day, let's discuss the Winklevoss twins and their case for a $500 ,000 Bitcoin price, which they believe is coming soon. So let's break this down, shall we? And welcome to y 'all just joining us in the live chat. Much love and much respect. So here we go. Winklevoss twins' prediction, Bitcoin will soon hit $500 ,000 per coin. And why? And again, shout out to Tyler and Cameron. Let's get, we already know their background, early Bitcoin investors, OGs, early investors as well with Facebook. Some claim that they're the real creators of Facebook and Zuckerberg stole it. But nonetheless, in a recent interview with the National News, the twins explained they remain convinced of the future of crypto. The main reason is the revolutionary and technical properties as well as the potential of Bitcoin to act as a store of value similar to gold. And in addition, crypto has many other advantages, mainly through programmability. Hence, the Winklevoss brothers believe that Bitcoin could even replace the precious metal. In the long term, Tyler Winklevoss shared the following. If you look at the properties that make gold valuable, Bitcoin matches each attribute or does better. The gold disruption story of Bitcoin is super powerful. We believe in it. Tyler Winklevoss explained his reasoning for the $500 ,000 Bitcoin price action, quitting him here. If you do the math, 21 million in the supply of Bitcoin, the market cap of gold, let's say it's 10 trillion, maybe it's 11 trillion, somewhere in that ballpark, that puts one Bitcoin if it disrupts gold and gets that market cap at $500 ,000 per coin. The two brothers did not want to give specific investment tips. However, Cameron reveals the strategy that they use, which is generally the simplest, which is simply HODL. Hold on for dear life, quitting him here. Generally speaking, if you subscribe to Bitcoin being a store of value type investment, then that strategy is HODL. The same way you would HODL gold is you buy and HODL long term investments. So according to the Winklevoss twins predicting the Bitcoin price will hit $500 ,000, they say predictions are difficult, but they believe that Bitcoin will hit the milestone within a decade. And when they were more recently interviewed and asked, where do you see Bitcoin in five years time? Here's what Cameron Winklevoss responded. We usually take a decade view on it. When we wrote a piece on the value that predicted it being $500 ,000 Bitcoin, we said within the decade. And I believe they wrote that in 2020. So they're basically saying by the year 2030, they're anticipating a $500 ,000 plus Bitcoin price with Bitcoin overtaking that of gold as far as the market cap. Now is that in three years from now or nine years? The timing part is hard, but I think the Bitcoin created $1 trillion worth of value in under a decade. That is fact. I believe back in November of 2021, Bitcoin's market cap surpassed a trillion dollar milestone and the total crypto market cap surpassed $3 trillion. But as of today, we're closer to a $500 billion Bitcoin market cap with the entire crypto market cap down to a trillion. Now, it also spawned many huge productions such as Ethereum and the entire asset class. He continues. If you look at the value increases in Bitcoin, it is this punctuated equilibrium where it is steady, steady, steady, and then boom, it reaches a new price level. This is the new normal. So it can happen very quickly. So there you have it, fam. Ultimately saying when Bitcoin takes off, it explodes quick and vast. And especially considering that two of the most bullish catalysts in Bitcoin history were on the cusp of. Six months away from a Bitcoin halving, we all know the Bitcoin cycles every four years, it drives the Bitcoin price up as it increases the scarcity as well as increase demand, basic stock to flow, numbers must go up. And we also have the approval of a Bitcoin ETF likely to take place in 2024, especially with Congress on Gensler's. But we also have the ETF experts such as Eric Balchunes given a 95 % chance probability that a spot Bitcoin ETF likely get approved in 2024. Those two catalysts will absolutely make Bitcoin rip to new all time highs entering price discovery mode like we have never seen before. So how high do you think the Bitcoin price will likely climb by the time of this next halving? Roughly six months out, scheduled to take place sometime in April of next year.

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

The GOP hopefuls for president are weighing in on a possible government shutdown in a debate on the Fox News channel.

And Donald Trump hides behind the walls of his golf clubs and won't show up here to answer questions like all the rest of us are up here to answer. Meantime, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Democrats are shutting down the American dream with their reckless behavior. He then asked, where is Joe Biden in the shutdown debate? We're four days away from a possible shutdown. The Senate is working to pass a bill funding the government through November 17th.

"governor" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"We have all these other problems in our military You know we need more ammunition. We need more recruiting. We need all these other things and yet. They're focusing on Abortion tourism, so that'll be an easy thing for me day one is commander-in-chief that policy will go out the window And we're gonna focus on mission accomplishment again if you win I hope that we are not looking at 600 vacancies to move people around let me move to China governor Their expansion of their Blue Water Navy is stunning This is my Bible on the Navy to provide and maintain a Navy by Jerry Hendricks Do you think they intend to use that Navy or is it just for show? No, I think I think they tend to use it. I think she is the most ideological Chinese leader since Mao Zedong I think he has more global ambitions than any Chinese leader in our lifetime They have built up a very powerful military not at our level yet But they're getting there and they're in investing in things like artificial intelligence with their defense weapons And so I think that they have designs not just on Taiwan throughout the entire Indo-pacific and of course as we've seen even in our own hemisphere here So we're now in a situation as a country where I don't think the Biden ministration has responded appropriately to that threat I think that they view the Chinese as kind of a friendly competition They've been more deferential lately that ultimately is not going to work ultimately What you respect and what the CCP respects is hard power And so we need to marshal more hard power in the Indo-pacific One of the things that we'll do is and I think you can do this and you know all this stuff through budget Reconciliation given what Biden did I think you can do a multi-year naval buildup Started in that first year in office and go because ultimately that's what we're going to need to do to project the type of power We need to deny China the ability to dominate the Indo-pacific If she ordered the invasion of Taiwan, I mean an across the sea invasion across the Straits Would you order if your president the sinking of those ships? Our policy would be to deter that from happening And I think that they would not do that if they felt that they would receive the appropriate level of response And so I will marshal assets to condition the environment and so that that does not happen now That Taiwan is an ally Taiwan affects a lot of our significant national security interests clearly It affects a lot with our allies Japan and Korea. So that would be a major major event Our policy is going to be prevent that from happening and I think we can do it I think if Biden continues to go another four years and they continue on this on this track We're heading towards some really really rough seas with China and they're probably going to have the upper hand on us I do think that there's time still to be able to turn, you know, the People's Liberation Army, you know, they've built it up I mean, you know this you an amphibious invasion is one of the most difficult military maneuvers Imaginable. He's seen what's happened in other parts of the world when when autocrats have tried to do things recently It's not worked out very well So that is a possibility they could do but I think we also have to prepare maybe they do a cyber attack on Taiwan Maybe they do a blockade on Taiwan I think he's got a lot of menus of options and we need to have the capability To deter any of those from being executed You know governor last night I was rereading American Caesar the biography by William Manchester of Douglas MacArthur And I was stunned by how much we underestimated Imperial Japan's ability to strike and willingness to do a surprise first strike Do you put a surprise first strike on American assets past president general secretary G and I don't like to call him president He's a communist general secretary G No, no, I don't I think that they're gonna look at and I think that the attack on American assets could be in theater It could be in space. I think that there's a lot of things that China can do. It could be cyber It could be financial there could be a lot of things that they do we've put ourselves in a position Where we have vulnerabilities to China over the last many decades our trade policy has really allowed them to create major Manufacturing a lot of the key things for our own economy and even national survival depends on component parts from China So there's a lot that they can do now There would also be pain on the other side for them for some of the things Economically and cyber if they were to do that, so there's risks involved But I think they would view it as something that if they are doing that Then taking action against the United States to try to trip us up would be absolutely something that would be in his wheelhouse Right now governor yesterday just yesterday. I was asked by an active-duty Navy officer What is the GOP's position on Ukraine? And I said Hugh Hewitt said I think it's about 60 to 70 percent support for all-out aid No troops 30 to 40 percent for strict limits on the ater to cut it off It's an issue that splits the GOP did I give a fair characterization? I'd say it's probably closer to 50-50 I think that a lot of Republican voters that I'm talking to they look at it and say you know you'll have these senators They will rush to the microphone and beat their chest about how important it is we keep sending more money to Ukraine But yet they don't have that sense of urgency at our own southern border Which is a disaster and the cartels are trafficking humans. They're bringing in money They're bringing in the guy narcotics many people are dying of course our ammunition stocks are going low our weapons stocks are going low There's not being the type of support for the Indo-Pacific That we need to so I think a lot of the skeptics in our in our base Are looking at it as a matter of priority they seem to prioritize This above all else and ignoring a lot of the other things you know my policy is going to be We're going to focus on China first We're going to make sure we're doing what we need to do in that theater to deter Chinese aggression We're also going to make sure we're strong at home and that we have a strong border And then we will work with our European allies, but they need to do more Than they've done we work with our European allies to bring the conflict to a conclusion in a way That's sustainable and doesn't doesn't reward aggression But you have to be strong at home if you want to be strong abroad and the elites in DC in this country right now Are ignoring major problems at home? So I don't think that there's a lot of Republican voters don't like you like the Ukrainian people or have any ill will I? Just think that they're concerned about so many issues being ignored here Governor the artificial intelligence arms race is underway. I mean there's just no doubt about it that the CCP wants AI dominance We want it we have to rely on people like Google and YouTube or Facebook They have censorship histories in the United States or Microsoft which has worked with censorship programs in the CCP Who should be running the AI initiative for the United should be DARPA should we allow the private sector to do it? So here's the thing I think we have to recognize AI there's all there's a lot of possibilities there There's a competitiveness aspect. There's also a lot of perils there for society, so you know I'm not going to let as president computers overtake Humanity we're gonna have appropriate guardrails so that our society is not capsized by this but from a defense perspective China is in the game so one of the things I think we want to do is put more resources to defense Research and development a lot of the things that that you see in the economy that people use in their everyday life these Technological innovations that grew out of defense research in the past And it wasn't that the DOD was trying to develop that they're worried about the weapons systems But technologies get spun off from that so I think it could be it could be good for the economy to potentially So we are gonna have a commitment to more defense Directed R &D private sector is course has a role one of my concerns about how this is going is that there's only a handful of companies that are involved in the AI and all AI is is analyzing data sets the data that these companies are choosing to use is Politically skewed data, so it's more like woke AI well That's not something that is going to be good so I definitely would like to see other competitors to these Institutional stakeholders come in and offer some AI that is not That is not bogged down by that, and then we're gonna have to see this is a rapidly developing I'm basically on a day-by-day basis, but by January 20th 2025 What do we need to do to protect the American people? From some of the perils of artificial intelligence, and I will be willing to do that But I think this is something that's so rapidly development of developing a policy today will be outmoded In six months 18 months, okay governor I want to close with a couple of political inquiries, but first a fun thing are you a podcast guy? Do you listen to any podcasts regularly and if so which ones I? Don't really I'm starting to do more podcasts, and so maybe I'll start start listening to them But but I typically don't I typically just you know when I'm working out I'll have music on or things like that, and then it's not I'm chasing my kids around the house Working and when you and mrs. DeSantis get a quiet moment to watch Streaming television have you seen the jury room or jury duty or do you watch anything on TV regularly do you binge watch? Yeah, we have in the past. I we have not seen that I'm trying to we got into Yellowstone We're waiting for kind of the last part of the last season on that I think that that was really well done And we've watched a lot of the HBO stuff throughout the years now what we're doing is because I you know we're in Iowa Campaigning in Iowa so I introduced to my kids six five and three the field of dreams Baseball field the cornfield and so so now that they've they're watching field of dreams now They're watching other baseball movies And so so we've been showing them different things my son really likes that movie rookie of the year where the 12 year old has the Rocket arm and pitches for the Cubs so we've been kind of doing the on-demand Baseball movie well you know the very best baseball movie is is major league about the Indians But I don't know if it's an age-appropriate. Let me close with Jack's not age-appropriate I can't do it. I can show him pieces of the natural I can show him pieces of field of dreams Major League is just not there, but it is an excellent movie. I agree with you. Let me close with Jack Smith Do you think he is setting a dangerous precedent by bringing quote first-ever? Indictments for National Archives against former President Trump and what looks to be first-ever Indictments on fundraising practices we're not sure about that yet He did that with Bob McDonald the Supreme Court threw it out. What do you think governor? I I think it is a dangerous precedent. I mean here's the thing nobody's above the law nobody's saying that that's not the case But if you're stretching statutes like interfering with a proceeding and trying to shoehorn Conduct into that that is going to cause people to say wait a minute. What's going on here You know somebody robbed a bank, and you prove they robbed a bank everyone knows that's a crime everyone knows That's a wrong some of these charges like Alvin Bragg shoehorning this stuff in and in Manhattan And we'll see what these DC charges are if they happen, but it seems to me They're trying to shoehorn conduct into statutes that really weren't envisioned for for this type of situation And I think that that's going to cause a problem I also think the reality is a Republican in DC is not going to get a terribly fair trial That's just a reality it's a 95 plus percent Democrat jury pool I think most of the Republicans that have gone in there have just gotten gotten sliced and diced I think we should look at reforming this so that if you're indicted in DC as an American citizen You have the right to remove the case to your home Judicial district I think that would be a fairer jury pool for people very last question governor Molly Hemingway And I and a few other conservative analysts we use the term the narrative capital T capital N When we do that what what do you hear? What do you think we mean by the narrative and what should the audience? Understand that to me because the narrative about you has just been hilarious to me, but it's out there well right I mean so they want to have people believe something So they can cock the narrative to be able to deliver that regardless of what the facts are and sometimes their narrative Will be completely contradictory To the fact like they're trying to hit me on our campaign for Fundraising when in quarter two I was only a candidate for five and a half weeks We raised twenty point one million to our campaign Biden raised nineteen point nine million days and Trump raised seventeen point seven million is and they Were candidates the whole time during the second quarter yet somehow we weren't doing good And so I think they have a predetermined narrative.

"governor" Discussed on The Jimmy Tingle Show

It is intended to give candidate 20 for public office a platform and a voice. So voters know who is running for office, why they're running and what they hope to accomplish if they are so fortunate to be elected. So please feel free to share these interviews with your family and friends and citizens around this fine land because an educated and informed population is essential for a healthy democracy, and isn't that what we all really want, a healthy, democracy, enjoy the interviews, stay healthy. My name is Jimmy tingle, and I approve this message. Hello, everybody. Welcome back to the meet the candidate series. We have a very special guest today. Please welcome to the show. The current attorney general of Massachusetts now running for governor of the fine state of Massachusetts as a Democrat, the one the only attorney general Maura hilly. Hello morrow, welcome to the show. Hello, Jimmy. It's great to see you. Great to be with you. Great to see you as well. I know you've been working hard criss-crossing the state and was on your website looking at your background. You're one of 5 children, I think, from a single mother, did you ever think you would be running for governor of Massachusetts? And what got you into the political phrase, so to speak? What it got you into public service? Yeah, you know, it's a little bit about my background, Jimmy. My parents are from Newport up in the north shore. And I grew up by Hampton beach. I was raised just over the border in New Hampshire. I am the oldest of 5. My parents divorced when I was about ten, and my mom then raised us. And you know, she went back to work as a school nurse. She was a nurse before that. And she worked incredibly hard to keep things together. All of us kids worked, I started out probably the apple Orchard working when I was about ten and camp counselor and a variety of jobs. I wait just my way through high school college and law school, including for many years at the Hampton beach casino ballroom, where probably performed. Learned a lot about life there, probably more than I learned at Harvard. And I knew I wanted to be a lawyer. I after college, I had a brief career. I played professional basketball for a couple of years in Europe. And I came back and went to law school at northeastern and began a legal career. I think I was drawn towards service though from my legal experience and that led me to run the civil rights division for the attorney general's office years later. It's what led me to run to be the people's lawyer because when you're in these jobs, when you're in public interest work, when you're in public service, you do have an ability to help people. And that's been incredibly satisfying. I've been privileged to be attorney general for the last 7 years, built a great team of 500 really hardworking men and women who are trying to deliver for people around the state day in and day out. And I'm running for governor because I believe that these are really challenging times. There are a lot of challenges. We face up there. But they're also opportunities, Jimmy. And we can be and do so much more here in this great state. In a time when our nation needs it, we need leadership, and we need leadership from the states, and there's no better state to lead from or lead by example from the Massachusetts. Right. Well, tell me, I know you're following Charlie baker and he had a big approval rating among Democrats and I think more among Democrats than Republicans in our state. First of all, how do you think he did and what would you like to do differently? Well, governor baker and I have had from day one a great working relationship. And we've worked on a number of issues, probably most intensively, the opioid crisis. I mean, we were right together fighting manufacturers and distributors trying to get relief for families across the state. And he made that a top priority. I made that a top priority. We worked together. It shows what's possible when people are willing to work together. And I think that's what we've modeled for the state. I'm a Democrat. He's a Republican. We work extremely well together. I think about his leadership. I really appreciate that he was somebody and is somebody who really wants to study the issue and I know COVID was incredibly difficult and challenging in terms of some of the decisions he had to make. But I know that every day he was bringing a commitment to try to help as many people possible and see our way through that. I think as we look ahead, there are real challenges for the next governor. We've got inflation. We've got high cost of living in our state right now. People are priced out of housing, whether it's rents or mortgage payments. Some people can't even afford to downsize because they can't afford to buy another home. Transportation. I mean, you know, we've got a T, it's outrageous. It's on fire. It's derailing every other day every other week, something's happening. That's got to be fixed because we can't have a functioning economy without a functioning public transit system. We've got to invest in workforce development and job training, invest in child care. There's so much we need to do. But for me, Jimmy, I come back to how great this state is. We've got the greatest collection of human capital intellectual capital research innovation, know how. We have a history of going first, whether it was on universal healthcare or marriage equality, we've got to really draw upon that and I mentioned those basketball players. I was a point guard. And point guards, they like to have the ball in their hands, but the real job of the point guard is to get people working together. And get every teammate, you know, playing well with one another. And the greatest statistic for a point guard is not how many points you score. Actually, the assists, right? And so I think about that in governance. It's how I've tried to lead his attorney general and it's how I would lead as governor. I don't want to brag marvel, but I play point God as well. Cambridge. Cambridge Latin 1973, suburban league co champs. That is something to brag about. That's some serious serious ball. Oh yeah, it was division one high school. But anyway, you're right. It's about assist. It's about team play and Bill Russell just passed. Great team player. Great team player. That's what he's known for his rebalances, team playing, and that's what we hope to get from any of our elected officials. A person who can work across the aisle and a person that can share the spotlight with their, you know, their team as well. And I know we're going to be getting a lot of money from the infrastructure Bill. I know there's going to be hopefully more money in the conference here in Massachusetts. So what would you ever agenda be to bring Massachusetts up a few notches? Well, the first thing we've got to do is provide some relief to people. I want to see the legislature act now and pass some tax related. People need money back in their pockets because gas, groceries, you name it. It's all too high right now. Number two, we need to make the investments using the money that you speak of. We need to invest in housing. What am I talking about? Building new housing. You know, the way through this housing crisis and crunch is to create more housing, not just at the lowest income level, but for the middle class as well. We just don't have enough housing. And I wear a Jimmy about Massachusetts losing its competitive advantage. I don't want to see companies leave Massachusetts. I don't want to see people leave Massachusetts, but a reason they might is because our housing costs are too high. So that's the first thing. Let's
"governor" Discussed on The Jimmy Tingle Show
"You are not at 30,000 feet surveying the state like California or a state like Massachusetts. You're there in the neighborhood with the people on a day to today basis. And to your point, there's no place to hide. So if you've survived 16 years, were you actually mayor for 16 years? I have been, yeah, I feel fortunate. This is my 17th year, been reelected 5 times by the people in my community. And I feel blessed. So tell us about why you're running for lieutenant governor. What do you hope to bring to the office? You know, I touched about it earlier. I really feel like for the Commonwealth to be vibrant and thriving, we need our communities working. And right now, a lot of our communities are working, but not all. Salem's a gateway city, which means that we have a very diverse population, both in income and race and language and culture. I think it makes us more livable, but it also can bring different challenges. And we know there are gateway cities throughout Massachusetts, places that were regional economic hubs that some are doing better than others for our Commonwealth to do well, frankly, we need all of our cities working well, not just Boston and Kendall square and seaport district. I hope as mayor, as someone who's been an innovative leader with executive experience as a city that's nearly 400 years old, we have to not only be mindful of our history, but also be thinking forward thinking in a way that what's the next iteration of our community going to be, who are we going to benefit and how are we going to do that work?

"I'm happy that his sentence from death to life in prison. And you want to know why? Yes, I want to know her. If you kill me. If you kill someone, I would rather you be in prison for life than just die. Right? I feel like so do you know the story? Do you know the story around it? Not exactly, but you know, I guess you just know tidbits, right? We're gonna cut this part out. No, no, we're not cutting shit, man. I'm not putting you on the spot. Bro, we're all talking about it. I don't know the fucking story, but I am gonna fill you in on some shit that I learned, but I wanted to know what you knew about the situation first. Boy, I wrote it for the cut button, man. Chill out. Hey, you tell me what do you know about it? Well, I don't know much about it. I just know the story. But listen, I'm gonna tell you something that's crazy about the situation. We live here. We live here. Now, we're still new, guys. So I'm not going to have an interest in tidbit on podcasts or not a news host. And I got an interest in timid on why we don't know what's going on and probably nobody else does. But I'm gonna tell you an interesting fact about the situation. There's another guy who was there who said he did it. It's the eyewitness, and it is the story is that the eyewitness actually did it and he's been telling people on the street that he did it and got away with it. So that sort of what's been going on on the streets what's happening on the road brought to you by the streets. So how was that missed? Well, it's missed because you know it was just hearsay. If he goes and tells someone and then the police say, we're hearing that you're doing this and this and this. And then he goes, no, I'm not. Then what are they gonna say? I mean, they've already tried and convicted somebody. You know what I'm saying? Matter of fact, they have no longer having incentive to go back. So it's like, man, another reason the government fucking up. Big time. But hey, I don't know. Another thing I was gonna say about the whole situation. I mean, Cody unless you want to say something else. Cody, are you surprised that? No. No. Well, actually, I'm not gonna lie. Yes, I'm a little surprised. I thought that Oklahoma was more of like a capital or Corporal punishment type of state, but I am actually kind of surprised that we let the guy let the guy go. But okay, so I am curious about this. I don't know the answer, but so I did look this guy up. He graduated in a different state. He played college football in a different state. And he played in the NFL in another state. Why is he in the Oklahoma penitentiary? I'm sure that's easy to find why. He committed his crime in Oklahoma, maybe? Okay. Well, that's what I thought. All right. I mean, because we don't want to just be sitting here, you know. In silence. Nice jeans show me a beer. I'll give you a Dr Pepper. I apologize, guys. I should have done some more research on who Les Jones. Yeah, or you should have just chose a topic you wanted to talk about. Like, yeah, you didn't even say this nigga name, right, bro did not have walked free serving life without parole and myself. Well, yeah, he's not walking free. Yeah, so man has to go. What do you know about the case? About a case that, you know, apparently on the streets tell me about the case. You're just telling me that's your opinion and you don't even know what's going on. This is what you need to answer to us. Why the fuck did you want to talk about this? Because it's a pressing thing in the news. Okay, Cody. Okay. That's true. Starting with honesty, I like it. You know what? So why didn't you prepare? That's my next question. You know what? I think this would be a great spot to go ahead and move to. I was gonna say this would be a great spot to get our friend Emma's lawyer opinion on this. Honestly, thank you. So we have our friend Emma with us at your last name. We have our friend at Emma with here tonight. She actually just passed her bar exam recently. She's a lawyer. She is a lawyer in the state. We got a real one in the building. Hey. We have a friend Emma here tonight. She's actually a lawyer. She just passed her bar exam in the state of Oklahoma, which is the state that Julius Jones is getting convicted in. So we're going to let her she may or may not try this case. So let us know. She may try it. She may be a part of it. I subscribe. We'll see. Can you give us like three sentences on what your take is on this? Give me your money, let's see what she got. I'm interested. Why don't I just give you some background? Get a little closer. You should give her your headset so she can hear me and we can host this conversation because I am. I am curious from a lawyer's perspective on how this was how she sees this. Okay, so not from a lawyer's perspective, but let's just give it back on what's going on. So we're human. A human first face. Today, governor spit. Spit. Governor spit. Governor stood granted clemency for life without parole for Julius Jones. So his family and others of petition at the capitol lately, too. As governor stitt, you know, why don't you grant this man, something other than the death penalty, which is what has been recommended to him and there are reports that he was out golfing, that he was in prayer that he wasn't. Damn, he was getting lit. Stone. There are all sorts of reports. He probably was like in his press, right? You know? Damn, I'm lit right now all around the country they talk about. Do you know what I thought was so interesting was that 17 and 1816 year old high school students just straight up walked out of class. Oh my goodness, I wanted to talk about that too. That's crazy as fuck. Get into that. Just walked out of class. So straight to the capitol. That's really interesting. So I don't remember if this happened to you, but also when I was in high school, there was a moment where we all walked out for something and I had no idea what the situation was. But it had just started up everybody's like, yeah, we're walking out at this time this time this time and everybody walked out. And I was just wondering, now with social media, of course, everybody know what the fuck is going on. But I'm just wondering if it was student activated like where the students are like we're going to do this, or to where it was kind of manifested by the schools and stuff. I'm just curious about the that's easy. I don't think that I don't think we that we know. But we don't know. Is that our generation talks a lot on the Internet, but these students actually walked out of their high school. That's what I'm saying. Oh damn, they went to the capitol. They did. They have a walk is that. Extra credit. Cutting LA. I'll let you talk more about it, but Internet mob is a big deal, but it's literally just walked into it. Yeah. That's a good segue. Yeah, that is, but we got to get to the other stuff first. You could cut it and replace it. No, it's all good. My bad. But yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no. So that's gonna bring us into our well we like to call a segue topic. Hey..

David Bianco is chief investment strategist at DWS Investment Management. Our 12 month Target, which is September of 2022, is 4600. The S and P is been very close to that already. Um and a lot of people are asking us if the s and P can reach 5000 we think it can. But that's more about 18 months away, likely rather than 18. Weeks away, David Bianco of DWS. As for the rate Outlook and the Federal Reserve, so Bandera Roja Pez head of U. S rates strategy at Associated General.

This is Bloomberg. You're listening to balance of power with David Weston on Bloomberg Radio. Still to come this hour. We remember the September 11th attacks on the 20th anniversary. I'll talk to 9 11 commissioner Tim Roemer and former New York Governor George Pataki. But first congressional committees are working on the tax increases. The Democrats want to help pay for their $3.5 trillion budget, which means that those on the receiving end of those potential new taxes are gearing up for battle to make sure they don't happen to take us through the wrangling to come. I talked to Rohit Kumar, co leader of the Washington National Tax Services Policy Group at PWC. He, Mr. Kumar earlier served as deputy chief of staff. To minority leader Mitch McConnell. There is a flurry of activity and it's across the board, right, You know whether it's the proposed increase in the corporate rate of proposed increase in the capital gains rate, a lot of activity with respect to the proposed changes to the way in which we tax the overseas income. A few headquarter companies, which raises sort of competitiveness and sort of level playing field concerns for us headquartered multinationals. All that is happening now, because this is when some of the final decisions well, I say final decisions. Final decisions are made with respect to how the ball gets put into play. Um, it is not final decisions without a bill will end up on the president's desk. If indeed that happens, But you know this will set the you know one very important goal post. In the equation, and so there's a high premium for taxpayers and getting it right or at least getting it at least wrong as possible. So we're listening to what you just said. It sounds like there's potentially a lot of oxen who could be gored. Here's there could be a lot of cooks in the kitchen trying to change things down there. What's the strategy at this point is this uh U. S corporate interests, basically saying, we don't want any tax increases. Are they saying we can live with some? But not others. Are they saying Please tax? That guy over there rather than me? How does it work? Yes, So there's probably a combination of all that going on a sort of consolidated basis. I have not heard the business community rally around like we could accept these tax increases, but not these tax increases. Now. Individual companies and individual CEOs have been outspoken. Um, you know, taking a slightly different postures, saying, I can take a little bit of an increase in the corporate rate, but not as much as as you're considering, or sort of things like that. I think the received wisdom on Capitol Hill, for better or for worse is that some increase in the corporate rate is likely. Not all the way to 28%, which is what President Biden campaigned on and included in his budget proposals. But somewhere in that 24 25% range seems to be where the conventional wisdom um, is settling, you know, so that's sort of one. But the arguments are look, the wind in our sails has died down a little bit. The economy seems to be in a little bit of a stall. There's concerns about variant Delta very interest concerns about inflation. And so you know, these are all reasons to be somewhat cautious about, you know, raising taxes, which would have a potentially depressive effect on the economy at a time when the economy Maybe isn't as strong as we had hoped. It would be by now. You know, earlier this summer when it seemed like things were you want a smoother introductory. What about the taxation of overseas profit for us corporations? I mean, that's something that The Trump Administration dealt with, in part, right? They changed some of the rules. Uh, how vital is that corporate interests if you can, if you can paint with that broad, a brush Yes. So the Trump administration in the 2017 statute, actually, for the first time imposed a tax on the active foreign earnings of four of US headquarters, multinationals and indeed we are the only country in the world..

I guess <Speech_Music_Male> maybe <Music> <Music> with <Music> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> you know the thing <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> sort of disappearing <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> from the radar <Speech_Male> completely because <Speech_Male> the healthcare authority <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> just processing <Speech_Male> people and <Speech_Male> there are people <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> who have the coverage now <Speech_Male> as the as the voters <Speech_Male> intended <Speech_Male> or <Speech_Male> maybe <Speech_Music_Male> the way that they <Speech_Male> implemented <Speech_Music_Male> the way that they actually <Speech_Music_Male> carry it out <Speech_Male> become so problematic <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> That the <Speech_Music_Male> legislature then <Speech_Music_Male> is finally forced <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> to take some kind of action <Speech_Music_Male> next <Speech_Music_Male> but <Speech_Music_Male> those are the only <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> two scenarios <Speech_Music_Male> likely to happen <Speech_Music_Male> at this point <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> except <SpeakerChange> understood <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Female> <Music> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Male> as a <Speech_Music_Male> as a political <Speech_Music_Male> reality.

"Yeah that's that's you know. I don't i don't know you know i. That's i guess. I'm really just saying what the opinion said. The opinion says that's what governor state should have done and you know it's from a legal perspective. And i you know in in terms of giving a hypothetical governor state. Who's for some bizarre reason. Decided to come to me for this problem You know to give him the best most conservative advice. I could give him. It would be something like what this opinion says. Go to legislature. Get the authority and then make sure that the healthcare authority does does their end of it and then so we'll what should people be looking for in the months ahead. Now with this you know clearly people are signing up at a remarkable pace for medicare. yeah hundred thousand. Wow and and clearly. The healthcare authority is it seems to me can continue to operate the system as they operated the system for just with the additional expanded rules. That were approved by the by the voters. Oh yeah what what. I would what i would expect to see happen. Next is Some move by the governor's office to take sp one thirty one as a new template for a new managed care program and then try to redo what they've done previously through that process But the the thing that that i don't know perhaps the healthcare authority has been developing these these implementing regulations But i don't think they could have because they didn't have statutory authority for it yet So now that the they have. Sp one thirty one. I would expect the healthcare authority to embark upon whatever rulemaking process they need to develop the implementing regulations that can get where where sb one thirty. One let's them go at least so does that allow them to revive before contracts. That rewarded suggest they have to go through the process. All over again i. Those contracts cannot be brought back What would happen because again. The question is how can the state of oklahoma be obligated to these contracts and this this case really tells you for the state of oklahoma to be obligated to this this kind of agreement or lots of kind of kinds of agreements. There's gotta be statutory authority and there's got to be implementing regulations at the at the health care at the agency level and so Yeah there's there's no there's no way for there's no shortcut.

"That afford some real leverage there too. So if you've got a situation where you have a governor. Thanks i'm gonna point my justices you know if in fact he thinks that way and then you have a you know a legislature. That says were really unhappy because they keep. Overturning are abortion restrictions. That were passing. You just start down this list of things We'll just screws on them over there and see how they aren't. Yeah i it's a it. I'll say this about that. We do not have a terribly well paid judicial system and not relative to You know the kind of work that that gets put in and so. I think that that legislators here that a lot From folks back from you know well try to try. Did not being very articulate about this point of view. The end of the coming at the end of the monday on this. But i i think that if the legislature is going to make any changes to the judiciary it's going to be around. How are confirmed other selected. There has been historically in the last ten years a lot more interest in the legislature in Like removing the judicial nominating commission from the whole process You know taking it kind of federal system where the governor appoints in the senate confirms And so i. I would think that work. Yeah exactly yeah something there could. There's all different kinds of ways they could tinker with. How the judiciary gets get staffed up. But i wouldn't expect them to tinker with how the judiciary is funded. Because i don't. I mean the judges make a decent salary. I mean they make us a low six figure salary by by statute And that's that's that's a that's a good living. Not a lot of let a lot of people are gonna turn down a salary. That's that's that good but it's also a difficult job and you're you're probably as a judge or probably not making what you would if you were in private practice so i end and every judge has an office. That's right at the center of the county. Where you're legislator is is elected they they are. They're back home all the time. And if they're not happy because their pay docked because legislators had some beef with the state supreme court that doesn't have anything to do with the judge who's they're hearing preliminary hearings and doing probate and hearing arraignments and doing the real like tough day in day out..

"A much weaker officer than i think. People in in a denies think governors are Certainly americans have a sense of what executive power is from the president. And they you know they think it's pretty broad going back to the constitutional convention of nineteen zero seven. We wanted all forms of the founders of the oklahoma constitutional system the delegates to the constitutional convention. They really broke up executive power in interesting ways. They invested power in the governor but then they also created all these other offices including an office. We don't even have anymore. Which is actually in the original. Nineteen o seven constitution commissioner of charities and corrections there. Are you know. I think that it's important that we also remember that. The oklahoma constitutional system is divided up among lots of agencies boards and commissions and that also that also traces back to the the populist progressive theory of government that the constitutional delegates hailed to. I mean. they really thought that. Getting for instance The way in which the board of agriculture was was set up under the original nineteen o. Seven constitution was much different than than it. It is day in that it was. There was no commissioner of agriculture. They wanted that that That authority to be diverse and diversified among lots of different voices. And so this kind of gets to Fast forward to twenty nineteen governor stood is is inaugurated and really sets out on a project of trying to expand executive authority in oklahoma and find some Reception among the legislature. There were some changes made in the twenty nine hundred legislative session to give the governor direct hiring firing authority over certain offices. For instance the. You know the the health commissioner did not previously have the authority to enact regulations for the health department that power. The real power at the health department was held by the health board. And that's that's something that governors Wanted wanted to change you. Know direct authority over some of those big state state agencies and state offices and you know there is a that is a theory of government that he holds that executives should have a lot of power. It's a theory of government. That's pretty popular in the republican party now or at least was really popular during the preceding four years when we had president trump You know the attorney. General will be last attorney. General trump's last attorney general bar gave this big lecture to some federalist society group. About how important the executive was to To the constitutional principles from way back at the founding and this theory that executive officials should have a lot of power. doesn't come out of nowhere. It's not something that Distinguishes governor stint in terms of the rest of conservatism or the rest of the republican party. But it is. It's very much not how oklahoma's constitutional system was designed to work But you know. I can say with with my own on my own. Like from my own reading in the history of oklahoma's governors. We've not. we've had a lot of governors. Who have wanted to be more active. Who wanted to exert more power. I'm i'm thinking of For instance alfalfa. Bill murray governor murray. Who declared martial law a couple of times Kind of wage weird war with texas over the the bridge right and so like. It's i think not oklahoma. Has i think a very interesting political soul will. The character of the people is such that. Were very skeptical of of power. We don't like people having a lot of power but we also drawn to strong leaders were drawn to people who were willing to kick opened the door and shake things up and so i think that all of this kind of contributes to.

"This is his deep belief. And i respect that And i share that belief in in life However at this moment in particular was the time regardless of how personal regardless how genuine towards it was also a time where kirk was kirk. Not kirk as pekar and and we've seen in the last couple of months. Some shots coming up against him for the lack of leadership From couple of his caucus members karn caucus members that took a shot at him for For that moment and for other moments so again this will be a a a winning message in general in a in a normal republican primary not in a convention that we're seeing today however There's not enough goodwill here to make up for him in the convention against the two other issues that we talked about earlier in certainly is not going to be an issue that will win in the general election. i would say that My friends speaker cox has always been a leader on when it comes to the issue of life. And i really respect that. Because he's not the thing when it comes to speaker cox's he's not angry about the issue he doesn't get all in your face about it but he approaches it from position of christian love and he opposed approaches it from a way that he wants to understand any almost approaches. It like that teacher mentality. If i wanna. I wanna help you understand the issue and i want to work with you so i think it's great for our party to talk about but at the same time i don't think it's going to resonate. And overshadow the votes on medicaid expansion and things that he had to take in his career while with the convention butters all right. Our next candidate is amanda face. Who has been repeating the big lie that the election was stolen on the senate floor. She used the word patriot to describe the on supporter who illegally entered the capital and ignored. Police commands to stop as she crawled through broken glass to get into the speakers lobby where members of congress were fleeing from their safety on the floor of the virginia. Senate this is what senator amanda chase said about that day. I want you to say name ashley. Babbitt say name an unarmed veteran. Who was shot by capitol police. The woman fatally shot inside the. Us capital wednesday has been identified as ashley babbitt. Babbitt was a fourteen year veteran. Who served four tours with the air force and resided in san diego. According to media reports babba was a strong supporter president trump. According to her husband we remember ashley and the three who died of medical emergencies and the capitol police officer who died during the chaos at the capitol. These were not rioters and looters. These were patriots who love their country and do not want to see our great republic. Turn into a socialist country. David ramadan can the big lie win over a majority of these republican delegates. No shield win the twenty to thirty percent of the delegates. Come in and that's the limit of that big lie however the problem with a big lion. The problem with individuals like amanda chase is that they are truly poisoning. The rest of the party unfortunately there's still fifty percent or so of the republican base that beliefs that the election was stolen. It was not. They believe that these idiots there went to the capitol hill are patriots. They are not. They are looters They believe that what they were doing was patriotic. It is odd that was un-american in that was illegal in they deserve to be thrown in jail in. That's that's where they belong. Senator chases rhetoric was absolutely uncalled-for. Now there are concerns of ballot integrity on especially when it comes to changes in voter. Id laws voter access laws and things like that. I think there is a genuine concern. And i think there's you know thoughts amongst the republican base that there were problems in this election now whether it was stolen. You know. that's that's up to somebody who's way above my pay grade. Come on my brother. No now now. Delegate ramadan we will be above your paygrade. There's no stolen election period and if we don't start from that then we are poisoning the entire discussion. There was no stolen election period. But my friend. Elliot ramadan could you say without a shadow of doubt that every ballot that was cast every ballot in every part of the united states of america was absolutely one hundred percent invalid and the answer is no and there were problems with the fact that voter id. Laws weren't being followed or they had been repealed in the first place. There were concerns. I'm not saying the election was stolen saying there were concerns raised. I'm not saying that they were all right concerns. But we have a problem in our country where we can't have civil discourse anymore and if you disagree therefore you're wrong and you need a pushed out a society and therefore we should be able to have open discussion and say look. Here's the concerns i have. Here's the concerns you have and let's come to you. Know we may not come to an agreement but we're not gonna yell at each other in the process and that's what we lost in that entire twenty twenty election in my personal opinion. Now we lost more than that. My friend we lost we lost basis of what's fact what's fiction You can disagree on things near entitled to an opinion but nobody's entitled to their own facts. There was not a stolen election. there was a process. The process was verified again. Again and again there were lawsuits. They all came out short and false so if we even again entertained the thought that we are starting with the wrong base and if we don't have a base to start with if we don't have facts that are absolutely indisputable to start with then there couldn't be even a discussion mind you to have a civil discussion and the minute that we are even allowing that that that discussion of a stolen election to be within the same discussion off. Well maybe a no. And it's above nano. No no there is no. Maybe there was no stolen election period. No discussion about that. All right we've got some relevant listener mail from robert dyer and he says. Thank you for your podcast. It's really helped him understand the political landscape of virginia. He's got a question related to the current twenty-one primary campaigns the gop is doing a convention this year on may eighth or the democratic party has primary on june eighth. He's wondering if there's anything stopping typical. Gop voters from participating in the june eighth primary. Anyone can walk into the june primary. As long as they are a registered voter and vote. There is no party registration in virginia therefore a republican independent or a democrat can walk in and vote. that said. it's not likely that you're gonna see a big number or even a small number of republicans are going to participate in.
"governor" Discussed on Transition Virginia
"And we're back on transition virginia. We're talking about the republican candidates for governor. And we're gonna get into what they would do. If elected let's start with our big money candidate glenn yung-chen this is young can talking to don croat at w. a. v. a. when this governor opened up massage parlours. Abc stores in my church clothes last year. I knew he didn't share the same values. I didn't so we're going to stand up for our first amendment rights. The we're also gonna stand up for the unborn. We're going to stand up for our tenth amendment right and the overreach from washington right now. Goodness gracious down there. They're actually debating bill to pack the court all right so is this a message that will work with republicans would republicans it will but if we're assuming that this person has gotten the nomination at that point this is losing message in general. The fact of the matter is is that we're going into an election that is going to be directly. After the first year of biden harris you know and yes. There used to be the old tradition in virginia that whoever was in the white house the opposing party would be in the governor's mansion of the commonwealth. That's been thrown out the window since the election of terry mcauliffe however it could connect with virginia voters and that's not indicative of young. That's indicative of everyone that this election will probably at the end of it turn into a referendum on the biden first year in office next up. Is our other big money candidate in this race. Pete snyder illegal immigration cost taxpayers billions and it brings crime and gangs into our communities. North of mccullough won't take violent illegals off our streets that i will when on governor all enforce the law and deport violent criminals david ramadan will scapegoating undocumented immigrants by calling them illegals worked to secure the nomination and this convention yet it. Let's allure for the convention Absolutely guarantee a loss in the general election again doesn't matter who you can plug chains here. Snyder yung-chen cox Chase that doesn't matter who the name is any in all these messages overhearing messages purely to win the republican convention and these are messages. That are absolutely messages. That will not resonate with the majority of the populace in virginia. The nine resolute with the Electric power centers such as northern virginia hampton roads and and so and therefore the are messages that are just in my mind guarantees The loss in the general election well not completely disagree with the gentlemen from south riding. But i am going to disagree with the gentlemen from south riding because mr snyder's campaign has focused on opening schools. And i can tell you right now. The biggest frustration amongst middle-class families in virginia is that our schools are still closed and that we are trying to at least go to a hybrid model if not opening schools five days a week. I completely agree with mr schneider. I'm not endorsing mr snider. But what i'm saying is we need to get our schools open math my friend by the time that the general election come around schools would be open. It's it's an old issue also met. We're talking about immigration here. What do you make of his position on immigration. I think that it's a concern of the republican base. I think there is a concern. And there's a way to word it very differently than what he's wearing it. You know. I don't like that we're using the terminology. He's using but there is a concern amongst the base of what's happening at the border. Since president biden took office there is a concern. I understand that a lot of folks may not see that But there is a concern amongst the republican base concerned amongst average voters. That there is a problem at our southern border. More than a concern. It's a fear. It's a phobia this point through the republican base but that does not a new general elections. Numbers are now there. These are these are messages that are not that are not resonating with the majority of the populace off virginia. And that's why whoever ends up the nominee of the party because of this messaging and this is not not against any single one of the republican nominees but regardless of who the nominee is because of the messaging that is prevalent to the party in that. We're seeing from all of them. They will end up losing this election by double digits. I disagree that snyder ad did remind me of the infamous gonzales. Be add on immigration and remember. What happened ed. Gillespie he lost. Well that a total potshot of an ad. I still embitter about that ad. That was not the character few. Ed gillespie was ed. Gillespie is my friend and a kind and good hearted man and his strongman of christian faith. And i'm still angry about that ad. It's been four years You know. And i don't think that's pete snyder's character. I don't think that's a majority republican fields character and i don't think it's a majority of republican voters character. There is a concern about immigration amongst of the average populace in america. I know that. Msnbc doesn't portray that but there is a real concern about the way this is happening at our southern border and the fact that we're cramming these folks into these detention centers. And we're not doing this in a way. And i'm not saying i have the complete one hundred percent answer but what i'm saying is there real concern and i think it's more than just the republican base just to write it off as a republican base is wrong. I think it's the average. American is concerned about it. I think there's a way to word it. That's a little more presentable but at the same time we can't just write it off and say oh just a basis concerned about it. No everyday americans in everyday virginians are concerned about what's happening on our southern border. All right well we gotta move on because these are all good points and food for thought but next up is cut cox who debase his career trying to undercut women's healthcare here's one of his spots highlighting the issue route. I heard governors radio interview where he basically advocate for abortion right up until birth host devasta-. I took an unprecedented step speaker. I came all the podium. The dyas went down to the four made a speech on. How important light was. I will never stop fighting for the promise of life. anything. I could speaker to stop. Then i'll stand up to the pro-abortion radicals all right. Let's talk about this moment in two thousand nineteen when speaker cox walked down those steps and took a spot on the house floor to give a speech opposing abortion rights. What does that tell us about. Speaker cox david ramadan. I'll start with you. Look this is a very Very personal issue for kirk and this is.

"Because i i've been to many of his events seen him speak many many times and you know some reporters in texas now started to ask me and others always ask me like what's what's the is professional wrestling if you ever watch it. He's doing professional wrestling. Promos as political theater where you know he used to. He did a bit about taking a steel chair to the establishment itself. I mean it was. It was that like brazen. It wasn't even sort of subverted in their no it was. It was quite quite literally literally beating people over the head with these metaphors up and one of the things that happens in professional wrestling is if you have a gimmick in a certain area or territory whenever and it's not working you leave and you totally reinvent this new character to be somewhere else and i think that's what happened. We've never seen somebody to be so thorough on. The professional wrestling is exactly like politics. Sort of gimmick and that. And that's really what it is. Egypt he just got a new gimmick nia a new venue for it and and who knows you know if this doesn't work out there's plenty of other states in the union. There's plenty of other elections that every two years. It happens every two years so there are so. We have not heard the last dan road. Amer in on your point to your point in terms of his electoral performance. He didn't embarrass himself. You know When he ran for state senate in twenty eighteen he lost to a former member of the assembly who was Sort sort of neutrally regarded but he beat a former state senator Who who was sort of an inconsequential a state senator but nonetheless a name that people knew in nevada. He beat her to to come in second in that republican primary in two thousand eighteen and then in twenty twenty. He beat a field of candidates that included a former statewide elected official to win the nomination. So it's not like he is completely ridiculous and You know loses all the time and makes a fool so he actually has a record of winning certain primaries and so you know that he does have something to go on whether or not he should have may be stayed in nevada in run for another office and then sort of tried to build on that i think is another thing but i think you know i agree with you. I think he realized okay. Well i've tried twice once in a small district once in a larger district probably opposite of out should have been People are buying it here. Maybe it's time to move on to somewhere else and and this special election Sort of a gimme right. It's like the space between spaces. You know the twenty twenty ran than twenty twenty two loses this one he can still start gearing up for twenty twenty two and see what happens then so maybe someday we will see dan big. Dan wrote emmer in the congress of the united states. And if we do the plaque outside his office. I really hope has big. Dan in in quotation marks From whatever stadium prepar well. We'll always keep our eye on that and all these other elections that we talked about plenty for this week. I think you can always find us every friday. You can us on. Social media.

Virginia were talking about the republican candidates. For lieutenant governor now next up is businessman puneet ottawa. Unfortunately he did not participate in the chasing freedom forum. That's where i've been getting all the soundbites that we've been using so i don't have that kind of sound from him but he does have several videos on youtube and this is how he introduces himself on youtube whether you're white black or the first generation going like me we're all responsible to make this wonderful country work. We have to demand our leaders fight for small businesses. Excellence in education and keeping up police funded on neighborhoods are safe yet. Another immigrant story. What do we make this introduction. Pony is an activist who has been involved in republican. Party specially in fairfax virginia for several years actually probably a couple of decades and he has been involved in trying to build the immigrant base Within the republican party and he's done some good work however unfortunately all that work was eroded in the last few years and whatever work he did like the work that i did is no longer a useful or applicable To elections today so again another immigrant story and other feel-good story yet an electorate. That really doesn't care for despite claiming that they do. Yeah i think he's got good instincts on what he wants to care about issues. Small business education know and police funding as a misunderstanding of what the policy is actually is being proposed but you know until the republican party can pivot and be pro-immigrant allies. Just running in the wrong race now in terms of issues thomas. You just mentioned several. He hit up there in his youtube. Introduction one issue that he has a whole separate youtube video about and this is a theme among these candidates is critical race theory. I have a prediction that throughout this campaign season we're going to hear republicans talking about critical race theory. So this is what he had to say about it in his video on this subject. Critical race series. America's hopelessly tainted by the boys of racism. And how does that prepare children to be. Scientists engineers poyet's and teachers doesn't critical race. Terry has been thoroughly discredited. All in does teach children to divide to hate to see themselves as victims oppressors. It leads to lower achievement and more quotas. America conley lead the world when we don't even believe in our values but that's what leftist progressive warrenton. Virginia david ramadan. Is this really an issue that is going to resonate with people on the campaign trail. Why is everybody talking about this Because there is a lack off. Resignation issues This is this is going to backfire. No it's not gonna It's gonna backfire and this reminds me of the fight. The republican side had put up against climate change in accepting the fact that there is climate change. Now we need a new issue so okay. This fits within the this. This charged atmosphere So let's play this once. One of them plays that everybody plays and becomes a snowball effect. It will backfire. It's not it's not a general election issue. It's a it's probably the smallest of the smallest issue that's gonna work four convention as well and I don't think we'll we'll hear much of it after As backfires in general elections Except among the extreme segment of the party which does not want us. He's he's simply here is again plan to the to the atmosphere of today's election which really has been referred to a silly season before and and i agree it silly season and will continue to be silly season until the conventions over. Yeah i mean. I don't know how you could possibly save critical race series been thoroughly discredited when it's white supremacy was the very tenant upon which many institutions were founded in this country and it just is what it is. It doesn't say anything about the generations who are alive today whether they'd benefit from it or they don't benefit from it. It's just a simple fact. And yeah. It was so pervasive as we peel back the onion layers. We come to understand. Just how much it's influenced and to me the strikes me similarly to you. David this is just another republican. Sticking their head in the sand look putting on my shore. School had again. It's a theory by definition is theory is an idea that is open for discussion. You agree with you can disagree with you could show evidence for or against but this is not you know h two o chemistry that you could simply discredit or simply proof. So a claim that it's a discredited theory is not up to par on an intellectual level. Yeah also point out that being on the opposite side of the civil rights movement and activists is not where you want to be in twenty twenty one and yet another shout for the sharks excellent job. David ramadan your check in the mail. Okay so the last candidate we're going to talk about is maeve regular now. She did not appear on the chasing freedom forum and she doesn't have a youtube channel in fact she doesn't appear to have much of an online presence at all. She did run way back in the year. Two thousand so more than twenty years ago she was one of the republicans who was hoping to take on jim moran in the eighth congressional district so she's a lawyer from alexandria and she does have this political history where she was an unsuccessful candidate. Twenty years ago. David roman what would make this last minute entrance.

"No it will. Not but glenn has no other choice but to do this. Not only because he believes it and he's right in the general election. The only way republican could win even though it's still a very far could in today's gel atmosphere regardless the republican is a republican could win if republican is in the middle in the general election. However for glenn out he has no other choice but to do this in addition to being right above the general glenn's voting record is not solid conservative record. He has been courageous in had voted for gay rights. He had voted on. Labor issues had voted on work issues and therefore he could not even if you wanted to position himself as the far right candidate and thus he is going for you know. Hail mary my mind here glen bell a friend of mine who is a member of my small business development caucus in the house. And he's going for hail. Mary on okay. If the vote is split among all the ones that are splitting the right vote. Is there a chance of people. Go for the number two on the ballot Are they gonna divide enough that vote that he may be able to squeeze in and if all fails than nominate. David ramadan frail g. As as i joked on twitter yesterday when his staff of hashtag david for l. g. instead of davis forever. You know this is probably not the worst strategy for a ranked choice ballot I mentioned just a minute ago that you need to win the suburbs in order to win an election and yeah he is definitely not the most conservative he is not ideologically partisan and that is going to play well and the moderate suburbs You know the problem. He has just one of numbers. The number of voters who identify republican over the last four years have diminished to the point that it's just you know the hardcore extreme believers so will any of those people that glenn davis really needs to win and list him as number one or two on their ballot. Even be there in the first place is it's an open question. Your the ranked choice dynamic is all theoretical at this point. We really haven't seen it play out this way so it's gonna be fascinating to watch now on. Glenn davis like many of these candidates. This is another running theme that will have many of them have an immigrant story on the campaign trail. He talks about his great grandfather. Emigrated from italy He also talks about losing his job. Nineteen ninety nine living in a one bedroom apartment where he started. It company he also has this story about his childhood that speaks to his agenda. I remember being nine years old sitting on a couch one night when the phone rang. And my daddy. It was about my uncle william and my uncle. William were did a convenience store about a mile from where i live today that it was robbed. He was taken back and he was murdered. And i remember. My family said weeks after that they. They said that he probably did it before. Because it was before incensing. Abolition of parole. It wish mcelwain had his firearm on him. Because he's still with us today but they never blend ghazi never said we needed more gun. Control that this is a political origin story that weaves together gun rights with truth in sentencing. All these candidates talk about defending the second amendment. But glenn davis has this personal story. Will this resonate with voters yet will to a certain extent though within that small universe of republican electorates that are gonna participate in upcoming conventions in in may there is a segment that are one issue voters and that's the second amendment voters and that will resonate but would be enough to win number of those voters who are also very interested in other social issues. Which davis is not strong on. I doubt that that will be the case. You know speaking as a hard core. Democrat glenn davis actually gives me the least amount of heartburn and that's simply because i've watched him work by the way he's been a guest on transition virginia before and listen to our show regularly and he is somebody that democrats could negotiate with if he were to become lieutenant governor so of all the republicans in this race. I i see davis as the one that could actually bring the republican party forward and stand a chance of winning in the general one thing that he talks about that really. I find kind of striking is that he will as lieutenant governor. He will literally use the platform. Being lieutenant governor will actually speak out about issues there in the senate chamber. This is what he had to say about that. You know it's not just good enough. Republicans to say no it. Republicans to stand up and share. Why so as lieutenant governor. But you'll see from the days up there doing that. You will to cox about stepping down from the day to get a speech about life. Well rb darned it might keep my mouth when it comes to the second amendment. So what he's talking about there is in the last session when republicans were in power just before they lost it. All kirk cox was speaker of the house and he got down off the diet to give a speech from his ceremonial seat on the house. Floor opposing abortion rights. So if glenn davis is elected lieutenant governor who literally be presiding over the senate sessions where he could theoretically give a speech about any topic whenever he wants So what do we make of. The potential for glenn davis to be disruptive on the senate floor and giving speeches about the second amendment and maybe other things it classic case of comparison between leadership styles glenn mentions famous act by former speaker costs who decided to step down from day to speak about important issue of personally and was i remember that speech. It was very emotional was very personal however the optics of it in the way it was done it actually walked down the speakership in demonstrated really no other way to say it. But a lack of leadership by cox the time it's arguably the same light leadership had reached a despite how how good of a man is in service in his long-term service to virginia and as a delegate as teacher and so on a he didn't have that charisma even seen by his here one of his colleagues today former member of his caucus who elected him speaker saying that wasn't leadership the new leadership or the leadership style should be using the days. And as as lieutenant governor. I would stand up there and do so is what glenn davis say. That's a classic textual leadership compares in style that i teach to my students at george mason of the sharp school. And that's a huge difference between your old guard in the new guard among virginia. Republicans even though. They're both running at the same time today. The old garden new guard are both still competing for positions in leadership of this forty regardless how dwindling.

"To hear somebody talking about it. It's an important issue. Great okay and so. Our last candidate here is paul goldman. Mr goldman has been around virginia politics for many years. He worked for howland henry. Howell who ran for governor unsuccessful several times in the sixties and seventies. He also worked for former governor. Doug wilder now when goldman speaks. You'll hear about henry hall and doug wilder quite a lot just about every time. He speaks campaign finance records show. He raised about three thousand dollars. And this is how he introduced himself at virginia. people's debate. truth is i thought about not participating. Never been more embarrassed by my party. I was henry house campaign manager godfather of progressive politics in virginia. The only white person in virginia willing to be doug wildes campaign mets. They threw a lot of stuff at us. We results we could handle it but last month. Democrats in the house of delegates killed a constitutional limit to take a racial poison pill in the education clause in the virginia constitution. He thought about not participating in the debate because of something. Democrats didn't want to do and henry hall something and doug wilder. What's happening here. yeah. I mean i'm just really afraid of when somebody comes out with the drinking game because if henry how is on it i don't know from make it to the end like every answer talked about wilder or henry. How he wasn't adult in the nineteen seventies when all of this was going on. And if you're somebody who wants to elect new blood. This man's not it one of the things he wants to focus on is education and on the campaign trail. He talks about education every opportunity that he can including this question when he was asked about his support of lgbt. This is how he responded one of the reasons. I'm fighting so hard for these. No school bathrooms particularly for the women in the sports facilities for women in these rundell. Obsolete schools is atrocious. There would have been fixed them up. And i'm surprised. We haven't heard more about education so far that is the great equalizer is education an issue that will capture the attention of voters. Yeah i think. Education is thomas mentioned. That's one of the big issues The bathrooms that some of our schools are atrocious. He ends correct. I really think that was a very good statement by him. It probably would have been better with a henry. How reference though. Yeah yeah he. He's not wrong on the issue at all and people should listen to him and listen to what he says. At this point though i would say that like when when you're somebody who says you debate whether or not you even want to participate. You're not a serious candidate and it's just that simple. I just can't believe he has got mclean virginia money. What's the hold up there. We actually we got a rep this episode. Let's talk about that. So i read off all of the time clean. Virginia had donated to these campaigns which was many. What do we make of the fact that clean. Virginia has given twenty five thousand dollar donations to so many of these candidates. This is what they've said they would do. They said that because they've primary was so large and because there were so many people that identified with their organization that they would give an equal amount to each one of them. I'm pretty sure the only camera soul hasn't gotten it is that he is not taking any pac money. Which clean virginia is a pet now. Obviously a supporter of clean. Virginia could ride an individual's check the same so. I don't think they've done that. So i don't know until benefit from that but yeah they're spreading the money around to support all the candidates that support their organization. Yeah it's a really interesting move from them because you don't usually see organizations split. Their money that way cynical you might just look at it as an interest group trying to hedge their bets right and say well. We've got a lot of friends here and let's make sure one of them remembers that we were there contributor early on trevor one last question before we wrap this up so about eight candidates is they're going to be a ninth candidate. It sounds like there's going to be a ninth candidate getting in the race It's not someone that i know. It's not an elected official. So i guess we'll see. I guess there's still time you know. I don't even know when the deadline is for the petitions but it's the twenty fifth. I we got time to get to an even dozen here michael. I think we should get there. If people just dig down work hard enough you too can get on the ballot and possibly be the next lieutenant governor of the commonwealth of virginia. Yeah that's a nice place to leave.
