"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Camelot, Camelot, I know it sounds a bit bizarre. Sounds a bit bizarre. Let's guess the birthday, Mr. Mike. Bizarre. Bizarre is the word of the year. Richard Burton, born this date 1925. You know how old he was when he died? He was a young guy, right? 58. Now proving that alcohol is not a preservative. Actually, that wasn't really what got him. He had a lot of health things. I'm not sure the alcohol helped. No, it probably did not. And you know what I watched the other day? You ever do cable laps, dish laps, and you just land on something and you go, oh, this will be worth five minutes, and an hour and a half later, you're still there? The that spectacle was Cleopatra. I mean, the very beginning sort of of their relationship, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. I don't know if the movie is that good in terms of, it looks kind of primitive in the early 60s special effects, but it was amazing for its day. And it was just incredible to watch their interplay. And so happy birthday there for Richard Burton, born this date 25. Keeping it in the show business realm and musicals, I saw last night online, a group of Broadway performers got together in tribute to the children who've been kidnapped and are held hostage in Gaza. And they performed Bring Him Home from the musical Les Miserables. And it's a beautiful ballad. And they changed the lyric to bring them home. Oh my gosh, Mike. And Mark, it's beautiful. I mean, it is absolutely magnificent. And you know, and it's, I brought a tear to my eye. I'm going to play it on the show today. I hope everybody will look it up because it's really a good moment. And here's the moment that I love. And now you're going to get, you're going to lose your mind because one of the most toxic, vicious, lefty entertainers on the planet is one of the performers. That would be Debra Messing from Will and Grace. Oh sure, the red haired lady. Yep. And boy, she just despises Trump and conservatives and everything else. This is a time of strange bedfellows and odd allegiances where a lot of hard, hard lefties realized that the antisemitism of note today is on their side. Let me let you finish though. But it's one of those triangulation moments. No, but that's my point. You made my point for me beautifully, better than I ever could. That's what I like about moments of unity, even in a time of darkness. And I mean, boy, we are in such a dark time right now. And what's so difficult is how people are delusional and not being able to see good versus evil and right versus wrong. And so you're right when there's a moment like this where people can get, and the person who retweeted the musical tribute that I saw an ex last night was Patricia Heaton from Everybody Loves Raymond. She's a conservative, she's not a lefty. And so, and she did a big shout out to these Broadway performers for this beautiful moment. Listen, it was put together by Seth Rudetsky. He's like a sassy Broadway guy who I've listened to for years on satellite radio. And believe me, he's no conservative. They hate Republicans, but you're so right. This isn't about that. And I'm just praying for some clarity, for some wisdom. I saw Hillary Clinton yesterday on The View.

"You just said is ridiculous we are Democrats we run the city let's take some responsibility and let's fix this blaming the Republican Party that's not in charge anywhere makes us look like a bunch of morons I don't know why they can't say that see we Republicans are good ones we don't have an issue when our party screws up Jim what would you say we dedicate about 20 % of the show including today's show by the way with the George Santos segment to pillar failure it hillary stupidity Republican and just shredding these idiots for not doing conservative stuff I don't have any problem calling calling out a report to you liberals out there why can't you do that are you guys little Unix where your balls cut off or something when you were younger I mean really are you are you on some kind of hormone blockers you where just have to act like wuss bags all the time the mayor Chicago blaming Republicans how stupid are you Kamala Harris trotting out the Russia hoax again and liberals believe not a single liberal in that listening audience stood up and was like come on man are we really doing this again with the Russia stuff you got a president United States in office right now who's got a documented money trail from China that could potentially lead to millions of dollars he took from a communist country and you're really going with the Russia hoax again I'm not telling you to vote Republican I'm just asking you why you so freaking stupid I know I am why are you this dumb is it genetic is there something in the water is there excess fluoride or something why are you so freaking stupid we call our guys out on this show and my Republican friends call them out all the time we hated the CR why cuz I don't like government debt why because Republicans contributed to it to Bush Trump ever we've spent a lot of of Reagan too we shouldn't have done it how would you share easy this is when you have a bunch of principles why why are you guys so dumb and women out there here's comply another well yeah comply and right they did maybe it's to go along to get a long crowd I know don't Jim I don't maybe it's not maybe it's just you're like little Borg like Star Trek beings and Central man pro maybe it is a simulation Jim always laughs when I have this conversation I've seen no evidence we're not living in a simulation and none this is more evidence of it you've got a bunch of Jim queue up for me if you would cut five here's what I mean by how stupid liberals are Biden passes this inflation reduction act and he says and they passed a bunch of it's ratings not just the IRA but a bunch of Democrat liberal regulations that said listen you auto killers and you automakers you are gonna make and sell electric cars now a sane person who's not a dumb -ass liberal with his nuts cut off would say to themselves before we decide to make billions of dollars in this product Jim what's the question you would not a trick that's a good one but what's another one ask how about do people want these press yeah Jim had a good one though too well that's good I know what you're thinking cuz of that tweet Jim's thinking about do they work before we that's say actually a good one I hadn't considered so I appreciate the back and forth yes but let's put doesn't work on the back burner because no they don't but let's just forget about that the first question I'd ask is wait you want me to invest billions of dollars building in a product does anybody want it no nobody wants it oh but build it anyway um okay here's CNBC not Fox not Newsmax here's here's CNBC a guy who represents a bunch of car dealers you're gonna hear the commentator in the beginning talking about how these electric vehicles which nobody wants by the way except moron lefties castrated ones how they're just sitting on the lot because nobody wants him you probably should have thought of that first check this out the political push to force you to buy an electric car in many states hitting another little bit of a speed bump in fact thousands of auto dealers are now calling for President Biden to quote tap the brakes on the realistic government electric vehicle mandate their words with us tonight is one of those dealership owners the owner celebrity motorcars Tom may only Tom it this isn't like you and a couple people other writing this is a lot now dealers writing a letter to the White House yes good to it see this is thousands this is thousands of dealerships that represent just one brand people don't want these cars man them but again because liberals are idiots they're like listen man we gotta double down on EVs you realize over the life of the electric vehicle that the carbon emissions aren't even significantly reduced unless you make it a certain amount of miles with that vehicle and the difference is minuscule so just to be clear you want people to buy crap they don't want that they won't buy that does absolutely nothing for the environment while bankrupting car companies car company employees and car dealers and you want to do it why why because you're freaking morons you never ask even basic questions i thank god every single day i wake up not being a liberal i'm again i'm not always proud of the republican label they screw up a lot but i thank god every morning i am not dumb enough to be one of you you are so freaking stupid it unreal is how i have to explain basic things like econ not even one oh one like econ zero zero zero one a five -year -old understand could that maybe before the government mandates a product be produced you you should probably figure out if people will buy it what liberals are like gosh like really you're stupid i'm telling you i'm gonna run for president one day bank on it if i if i survive this whole cancer thing i don't have it now don't freak out i'm i'm good i'm just saying if i make it like 20 years i didn't mean to take it like a death spinner that was so weird if i survive this thing i'm running for president and it's all i'm going to be doing is showing you how bad liberals suck it's out it's going to be a motto liberals suck because these people are morons i gotta take no

"To tell you honestly, it's not going to affect a beneficiary per se, if you have coverage or not. Going forward, if it happens, there could be some challenges to what kind of benefits you can get. But usually, the larger scale companies can offer more benefit than a smaller one. All right. I feel like every time these deals come up, I don't necessarily need to talk to the healthcare analyst. I need to talk to Jennifer or analyst. antitrust That's very true. You're just saying if this deal goes through, we'll go from six big in insurance companies that space down to five. What are the regulators going to say, do you My think? gut feeling, and as you said, January is an X in this, but my gut feeling that it will take at least a year and possibly two years if it passes, and there is a huge scrutiny from the government right now for it not to pass. Government is PBM's, scrutinizing basically saying that PBM companies like Cigna have too much power over drug costs and so on and so forth. Government sort of is against it. Overlap between two companies is not too big, so legally I think they can get it done, but we'll see what happens. Nevertheless, it's going to take at least one year until we know or on the way to know if it's going to pass or not. And these guys are still nowhere near the size of a United Health, right? That's still very much the top job. United is the biggest company and even if this Cigna -Humana combination comes, it's still going to be half. We have Cigna as our dental insurance and we have Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield for medical and health coverage. Good to know. Alright, so you step back from this deal. What's the business like for the health insurance business? I mean, is it, I kind of feel like even if the economy slows, I mean, John Tucker is still going to go to the doctor. You know, I mean, he's got to take care of that rickety old. That's actually, that's a consensus view that's actually not true. Really? So healthcare does slow down with the economy and based on 2008 sort of great recession numbers, the demand for care was the six years after the 2008 crash. Really? Okay. So health insurance will still be in business, will still make money. Healthcare providers will still make money, but the demand for care will certainly drop if we enter recessionary environment. When you talk about how scale is the most important part of this business, I mean, is it the idea then that as an insurer when you have larger size that you can then be negotiating with the actual health providers because you have so many consumers who are under your plans that priority negotiate a rate. That's the idea? That's the idea basically, yes, but you So wouldn't that benefit a consumer then? Well, there is some benefit, but also healthcare providers like hospitals are being pressured by higher costs of labor, compensation costs, so they're not going to provide care if they're not going to generate margins, so it's always back and forth push every three years companies, health insurance companies and providers renegotiate their contracts, larger companies, as you mentioned, health insurance companies have more leverage, obviously, but at the end of the day, everyone wants to stay profitable. What are just the broad regulatory risks for these health insurance companies? Nobody likes health insurance companies. Yeah, it's always one of things those that something will come and change the industry. My view on this is that usually law changes in a way where it can actually change the industry. It takes 10 -15 years and I always bring an example that Obamacare ACA was originally introduced by Hillary Clinton in 1993 and it took 17 years for it to become the law in 2010. So there could be changes, some negative, mostly negative, but to really change how the healthcare is offered in the United States, takes years. How do you compare our healthcare system Canada or the UK? I mean, people come over here and they say, you guys are crazy over here, but I'm like, isn't ours the best? I don't know how to compare it. So I've never lived in Canada or but how about Russia? I've been here for a very long time for 30 years. So, and you don't want me to compare anything to Russian healthcare 30 years ago, but, but, you know, again, I think everyone pays approximately the same amount of money, right? In the UK and Canada, you pay much higher taxes. Here we pay and for insurance whole pays and so on and so forth.

"Live or Memorex, that is the great Minnie Riperton. You were 15, Mike. Remember that on the radio? I do remember that. Loving you. The Tweety Birds in the background made it an easy song to make fun of. It seemed like a very shallow lyric to me. Loving you is easy because you're beautiful. I know. Is that really where you want to... That's it? I mean, how shallow and superficial are you? What if you got like a big old mole on your cheek? Bad skin. Dermatological. Anyway, the great Minnie Riperton would have been 76 today. Famous, famous daughter, do you know? The gal from Saturday Night Live? Yes, the wonder, wonderful comic actress Maya Rudolph. Maya Rudolph. I was forgetting her first name. Bridesmaids, dude. Oh my gosh. If you're ever in a bad mood, you rent bridesmaids. Just watch Bridesmaids. That's a little crass, a little crude, especially the bridal shop suite. Oh, it's happening. It's happening. It's happening. Look away. Look away. In the middle of the street with a digestive issue. Oh my goodness. Hey, listen, I've got digestive issues this morning after. I didn't know what my expectations were. They were not high. It's Ohio and you figure, well, maybe they're not up for baby killing, but they were. And I think that the weed vote, the legal pot vote brought out all the young stupid people and that's how you get your abortion advocacy in Ohio. Listen, let me just let you talk because as pro -lifers, we've got a lot of work to do. We have a lot of work to do and that's why tonight's debate is part of the process. We're in the spin room right now and I'm just getting ready for interesting dueling events. You've got Trump down the street in Hialeah. You have five candidates on this stage tonight and I hope that they bring this up. I hope they bring up the abortion problem that the Republican Party has and that's all anybody's talking about. What do you want them to say? Well, we have to say something differently because every single election has gone down in flames since Roe v. Wade was overturned. And we got a battle going on within the party and I want to give you a little preview tonight because I got a chance to visit with Hugh Hewitt last night. He gave me some tips about what to look for as he's been here in preparation. He's one of the moderators. Salem Media Group, our parent company, is the official radio partner along with NBC, Rumble, and the Republican Jewish Coalition for tonight's third GOP presidential debate and five candidates are going to be on that stage. One thing I know for sure, they're going to have a decidedly somber tone tonight. They're going to be serious. We know with Hamas and the war in Israel and, frankly, with the shellacking that the GOP took last night, particularly in Virginia, Republicans have a ton of work to do. And the abortion problem has to be dealt with. There's no way around it. You can stomp your feet and you can say, I'm a proud pro -life American and I'm not going to bend or you're going to never win another election again. Abortion is winning for the Democrats, Mark. Now, those of you who say I'm pro -life and I'm not going to give an inch, I respect it. I admire it. I wish I wish the world worked that way. I'm sickened to say this. America's in love with abortion in this country. Find somebody in your life to love you the way Democrats love abortion. And increasingly, non -ideological folks in the squishy, mushy middle, they just flip a coin and go, all of the things being equal. I want abortion. Right. That's where we have a lot of work to do. And brow beating those people isn't going to work anymore, Mark, sitting around calling them baby killers, et cetera, et cetera. No, it just isn't going to work. Well, no, but it is what the procedure is. But I don't ever want to antagonize people. And I know you're right. In fact, let me let you finish, because I just want to see if you're wanting our Republican field to simply be demonstrably less pro -life to say, you know what, maybe we do need to allow more abortions in the following way, because I don't – No, I think I really do believe it comes down to the messaging. I don't know that Republicans – first of all, millions and millions of dollars of outside money were poured into Ohio last night by radical abortionists who convinced women that you're losing a fundamental right if you vote no on this horrific, radical – I mean, abortion now in Ohio is legal literally to the moment of conception. And in fact, parents now – Moment of birth. Moment of birth, I mean. And incidentally, parents don't even have a say in a minor child's decision to abort a baby. Now, you've got to give an okay to get a tattoo in Ohio. Yeah, exactly. Get a Tylenol in your high school. That's right. But not to get an abortion. But we lost. We got thumped on this. We got thumped on this. And we've gotten thumped on it every single time, Mark. It's not a close call. Something isn't working and Democrats are going to embrace this going into 2024. Does that mean you become decidedly pro -life? Well, I think for starters, you change the messaging as best you can. But I'm afraid that the answer you're not going to want to hear is, yeah, probably so. In 10 seconds, I think you meant decidedly pro -choice. No. Decidedly – do we become decidedly less pro -life? Yeah, less pro -life. Yeah. Do we become decidedly less pro -life? And that's the horrific reality of – how many times is it going to have to happen, Mark? How many times are we going to say, well, we're losing another election. We've lost every single election on the abortion issue since Roe v. Wade was overturned. And Mark, with all due respect, I love you. It's not just Democrats. It's not just squishy Republicans. It's women. It's women voters who believe they are – that somehow this right that is enshrined in the Constitution – oh, and oh, by the way, it's not – is being taken from them. And it's not – we just – we're not going to win by wagging our fingers at the people who don't see the world. You and I aren't where the country is on this, Mark. We're not. We are where conservatives are. And so the question becomes – and by the way, everything you've said is true and plausible and supportable. So, as we look at a presidential election and some folks on a debate stage tonight in a country where now it is left to the states, what Ohio did last night is precisely the way America goes in post -Roe v. Wade America. That's what we said we wanted. And we knew full well that there would be states that did things that we liked and states that did things that we didn't. How about if the candidates we have – and it's kind of interesting. I don't know how pro -life Chris Christie is. I know DeSantis is. I think Nikki Haley is. I sure know Tim Scott is. I think Vivek is. So should they express their – maybe satisfaction is the wrong word – their acceptance of post -Roe v. Wade America, where states are going to do what they wish to do and Ohio can do what they wish to do, but that they are going to continue to be a voice and use their presidential bully pulpit to say that protecting life is a better way, while saying that the states can do what they want to do? Well, I'm not going to be president of Ohio. I'm not going to be president of Nevada. I'm not going to be – etc. Go ahead. But that's happening. That's happening. Let me tell you. Well, let me break it to you. Roe v. Wade being overturned meant that states get to decide what to do. States are deciding what to do and they're pro -abortion. Yes. They are. Every single state. There's not a state that's deciding in favor of the pro -life movement. You know, you can say, well, we're the good conservatives in this. Except, except, except heartbeat bills, heartbeat bills, heartbeat bills in Florida, in Texas, in other states. So – Well, but that's not legislation that conflicts with what is perceived to be a woman's right to choose an abortion being taken from her. You're so right. I mean, Glenn Youngkin has floated the 15 -week idea. And let's talk about Glenn Youngkin, incidentally, because there were high hopes for Virginia. And hey, Virginia, we got our butts kicked. I mean, they flipped the legislature. They didn't even – in fact, that wasn't even on the radar. They were hoping – we were hoping that Glenn Youngkin would lead a flip of the Senate over there. They lost it all. They lost the whole state legislature. Guess what? Glenn Youngkin is no longer going to be considered a candidate for president. I've got a buddy here – Well, he never was. Well, but keep an eye on him. He's not – Not this year. I mean, does he have a future? Of course he does. Look at him at 2028. But I have a guy here, Alfredo Ortiz, who's a dear friend, the CEO of Job Creators Network, and he had a theory. In fact, he's going to be with me tomorrow here in Miami. They're sponsoring our broadcast from the post -debate spin room. Alfredo said, if Virginia has a huge night last night, Glenn Youngkin will throw his hat in the ring as the 11th -hour savior of the Republican Party. Wouldn't matter. There's no room. That would be – It's too late. That would be – It's too late. It wouldn't matter. But anyway, he got shellacked. I mean, it was a bad night for him. It was a bad night for the GOP, and there's no way around it. Hey, Tate Reeves is still governor of Mississippi, yay. We kept one. We got that. We got that. We got some – and Joe Biden is still dropping like a rock in all the polls. And Trump is rocking and rolling and continues to lead in five swing states. So there's just data all over the place that are mixed as to what 2024 is going to look like. But you get an interesting view at five people who really want to catch Trump, and not a single one of them probably will. But it'll be fun to watch anyway. What do you think happens tonight? Yeah, it'll be kind of – What's the headline? What do you think? I'm going to keep an eye on Chris Christie because I'm just praying he starts screaming at his own audience and they start booing him. Exactly. And they start throwing orange peels and banana peels at him. I mean, that thing in Orlando, I played that clip. I'm sure you did, too. Sure. Oh, my. Have you ever seen a public – And what's the word again? I'm sorry. Your failure to embrace the truth is – Reprehensible. Thank you. I keep going deplorable, but that was Hillary, and we'd see how great that worked out for her. No, no. Reprehensible. Reprehensible. When you're talking to your own people – Yes. And calling them reprehensible – The people you're trying to get to vote for you, ideally. Not a good look. And I think – and interestingly, Hewitt and I last night, we had a great Salem party. And listen, we're very proud of this. I mean, say what you will about the meaninglessness. It's a big deal for us. Of course it is. For Salem to partner with NBC, and Hugh's going to be on that stage. Which means at least one conservative will be asking questions. Exactly. While Kristen Welker asks everybody about January 6th, at least Hugh will be there. And let me give you a scoop. Hugh is exhausted. Last night was the ninth rehearsal they had for this debate. I said nine? How do you rehearse? What do you do? You put staffers up at various lecterns and have ads just to kind of get through the drill? They put a couple hundred people in the audience. They test these guys because he – and he said Lester Holt and Kristen Welker have been just pros. He said Kristen's kind of the new kid on the block, but Lester's a veteran journalist. But they've got to be ready for everything. I mean, Hugh's ready for eruptions from the audience and how do you handle that and how do you interact. Anyway, they've had nine rehearsals for tonight's debate. And also, Hugh gave me a scoop. He said, watch DeSantis' performance. He has just hired fairly recently one of the best debate preparers in the business. I don't – I forgot the guy's name. I'll try to get it. I think it's Brad. I could not care less. Well, I know. But it's – Binders don't matter. Prep doesn't matter. DeSantis is DeSantis and he's wonderful. He's not Trump. DeSantis' worst problem is that Trump exists. I'll never forget the caller or the person who tweeted or something said that the only problem with DeSantis is he was not the best president of my lifetime. And Trump was. Trump exists. There's nothing the matter with DeSantis. There's nothing wrong with Nikki Haley except she's the queen of forever war. You heard Nikki Haley the other day saying the people who will abandon Ukraine are the people who will give up on Israel. Shut up, man. That's not smart. That's not a smart thing. But I can't wait. I know it may not matter at all. It's half the interest if Trump were there. Trump will be there down the road in Hialeah, you said, right? Heavily Cuban -American population there. That's going to be fun. And he's loved in Hialeah. Well, we'll be in the Spin Room tonight beginning about 6 p .m. Central Time. We'll have pre -debate coverage. Let's watch you. Let's watch you. Tell everybody how to watch you. Well, listen to us on the radio. I'm pretty sure we'll be on AM 660 The Answer tonight. As the radio partners, we're going to be here at 6 p .m. prior to the debate. The debate will be aired live and then I'll be in the Spin Room post -debate, hopefully talking to all the candidates or many of them in the Spin Room here. And you could also watch us on Salem News Channel pre - and post -debate. So it's going to be a big night, you know? And we're ready to go. And then I'll be back tomorrow here in Miami with you to wrap everything up. Is that room? Because it's funny, we've all done conventions, like convention coverage and the entire week of doing broadcasting from a convention. And the morning after the convention is like done, you and I still have shows to do. But all you can hear is the pipes and the drapes and just the clang, clang. I will not be here. As the trucks are off. But what in the world is that room, that beautiful room you're in? I won't know. It's beautiful now. It'll be rock and roll and post -debate. What's that thing? Are you just going to be run over by workers and forklifts tomorrow? I won't know because I'm not going to be here. I'll be at Salem, Miami. I'm going to be a few miles away at a nice comfy radio studio. There you go. We'll be at the Salem Radio Miami studio. Excellent. That's a very smart decision. I'll see you tomorrow, my friend. Here we go. We're ready for you. It's a big day and night of Mike. Can't wait for his show. The next up, the first thing you need to consume is Mike's own radio program. And that's at 10. Soon as we're done. On 660 AM. The answer. Hurry into the Ram Black Friday sales event for great deals on the trucks that give you all the power you need and all the luxury you could ask for.

You want to get yourself one as Sophie said, these are the prettiest hardware wallets. Uh, I just, I just like them. They're, they're super dope. Shouts out to my boy, Shishi for orange peeling or foundation passport, peeling me. Anyways, guys, let's get to this new story. So I saw this article from financial times. We didn't have time to cover it last week, but I think it's very, very interesting what's going on and really connect this with what we're seeing coming out from the numbers today. You know, we're seeing what the federal government's doing in gaslighting us about inflation and remember what we've been seeing coming out from the bureaucrats like Elizabeth Warren, we saw FinCEN proposals. We're seeing that, uh, you know, the sec, the DOJ, the U S treasury has basically cleared out Binance so that maybe the professionals can come in and clean up the quote unquote crypto space. And we saw this article on financial times and I really think it's one of those moments where they are saying the quiet part out loud and don't, don't get mistaken here guys, because I think that the, you know, the CCP China Yuan angle, the fear angle I think is noise. What really is the signal here is that the powers understand the game being played, that they are losing control with the dollar. They're losing not only control of the dollar, but they are losing the control that the dollar has on the world as the dollar has been the world reserve currency for the last roughly a hundred years. And now they are scrambling. And of course they always think there's going to be a political solution. We've heard the rumors and the rumblings that, Oh yeah, the dollar may be losing control, but we're going to, you know, we're going to roll out of CBDC and this is going to fix, it's going to lead us into the new world. It's going to update our financial system. Well, let's get into this article. And I'm not going to read the whole article, but I'm going to read some of it because I think there's some good points here. And it really is saying the quiet part out loud here. So headline from financial times, the U S dollar dominance is facing a crypto Yuan hostile takeover. A new challenger is approaching. It's no surprise that the U S treasury who's remit includes combating threats to the dollar and protecting the integrity of the financial system is warning Congress that the dollar based digital instruments, stable coins and crypto exchanges poised significant risk, but risk to who? And again, guys, they always use the same excuse, you know, AML financing, terrorism, a risk to national security. Well, of course they're going to always continue to do this as long as it works. So crypto dollars, AKA stable coins won't collapse the world financial system, but they could disrupt the cozy greenback based settlement system. Preeminence of the dollar as a currency of choice for contractual settlements coupled with the depth and sophistication of us. Capital markets has enabled the U S and other Western governments to police bad actors emphasis on that by imposing economic sanctions on people they don't much like, unfortunately for the U S and its allies as events currently unfolding in Hong Kong, accelerate CCP controlled crypto, stable coins and related exchange transfer platforms will eviscerate this prerogative. The best new money is here, digital dollar stable coins and other tokenized crypto pseudo currencies. Unlike the old dollar easily regulated tracked and tethered to Washington, DC, offshore crypto transfer systems operate outside the extent global regular regulatory net. They're effectively stateless dollar cryptos are of course, not currencies at all. They're simply components of an alternative money transfer system akin to Western union fed wire or Swift and fed now, but without disclosure or regulation, they are risky assets because there's no underlying collateral. Essentially they're unsecured obligations of the issuer of the token. For the most part, offshore crypto exchanges require no regulatory cap collateral. Large scale acceptance of crypto tokens can provide a robust settlement for mechanism for legitimate economic activities, but they really shine as tools for illegitimate activities. Letting all manner of criminals conduct business and dollars while bypassing the oversight mechanisms of the federal reserve, the CFTC, the sec, the IRS and banks subject to American regulation threats to the current order are being rendered operational by the Hong Kong based crypto companies and exchanges with direct ties to the CCP implicit control over a system of crypto token exchanges, clearing systems and custody mechanisms would offer the CCP a lot of information and bang for the butt infusions of Chinese government resources could expand the capitalization of Hong Kong crypto exchanges, making it a center for crypto tokens for the U S and Western institutions. More generally, there's enormous risk in the possibility that the CCP will be successful in establishing Hong Kong as a hub for global trading and clearing of crypto. Before I go on, remember when we heard in the past, I think it was about a month ago that Hong Kong was trying to make themselves a hub for crypto at large. And we had a guest on an IRL who said that they know exactly what they're doing. And we were wondering then we were speculating whether China at large, they do have the two countries, one China policy. And we were wondering whether they were using Hong Kong as basically like their experiment. They're using it as, you know, like, okay, we're gonna, we're gonna let Hong Kong do this. But, uh, we here in China, we don't like cryptos. And then we heard that, yeah, they know what they're doing. They're not going to say Bitcoin. They're using crypto so that it's kind of a broad statement. And here we're, we're seeing the financial times basically say the same thing. Hong Kong based digital instruments and exchanges will be opaque to the outside world with disclosure exclusively provided to Chinese authorities. All others will find them impossible to monitor much less tax or control via domestic sanctions actions, Western notions of a rule of law and the institutional scaffolding of modern capitalism imperfect as it might be, will be absent. What's more, the Chinese government issues its own CBDC, a digital yuan giving it better visibility and granular control of those funds. We've been saying that forever and they're even quoting the human rights foundation says, according to the human rights foundation, implications for human rights are significant. Paper cash can transact outside of the oversight of a totalitarian regime. CBDCs are tools of surveillance and social engineering. Love to see that that signal is getting out here. And just to conclude this and wrap this portion of the financial times up, the emergence of an opaque unregulated offshore dollar denominated transfer mechanism is directly counter to us interests. It's up to the U S to offer an alternative or to define what constitutes acceptable compliance. It doesn't look like much today, but the Hong Kong based crypto dollar and dollar based offshore transfer systems are like us national debt. Don't matter until they do as Hemingway might, as Hemingway might have put it. And you love to hear this sentence guys because they're using our memes in financial times, crypto adoption and facilitation driven by the CCP, may well happen gradually, but suddenly it could become a new standard. It's our meme world and everyone else is just living in it. By then, the old dollar and incumbent global settlement system will have escaped us control for good. Now, Kate long tweeted this and it's what we've been saying all the time. The quiet part out loud. They're rightly worried about Hong Kong via USD stable coin becoming a hub for us dollar clearing that's outside us is reach while the U S dithers, but it's not just Hong Kong. And she mentions, obviously, fast path for Malay and the dollar eyes of Argentina, Argentina via USD stable coins. Now, look, I am not a stable coins fan. I actively literally dislike stable coins. I think Bitcoin is my stable coin, but this makes you really wonder. And again, this might be noise if you're just reading the article, but we want to connect the dots here and what we've been seeing the last couple of months, I have, you know, the, the infamous Elizabeth Warren bill here, the anti money laundering act. And when you read what they're saying in their own publications about the fear of pushing crypto offshore, of losing world reserve currencies of what's happening in bricks about people all around the world, dropping treasuries. You start to remember the quote from Christine and the guard. If there's an exit route, people will use it. And first people need to feel the pain. And now we're seeing that everyone around the world that is understanding how the financial world is working, understands what is going on. The dollar is losing its world reserve currency status. The U S the federal government has overstepped their bound, and now everyone is looking for an alternative. And if you are still like we were talking about in the numbers, regurgitating the party lines of the corporate press or the federal government, you may not get yourself in a position to save yourself. And again, bringing up the FinCEN proposals for new regulation to enhance transparency and convertible virtual currency mixing and combat terrorist financing. You start to see a pattern here. They're going to constantly use the threat of national security. We're here to help you little guy, you know, we're here to help retail. But in reality, what they're trying to do is protect themselves and connecting this all together because we are talking about offshore pushing Bitcoin offshore. We did get the biggest settlement in regards to Binance. And I I'm hearing some crazy rumors about who is going to get into control over at Binance. And it really just goes into the other rumors we're hearing that basically they had to clear out Binance so that the professionals like BlackRock and you know, all, all the ETFs can come in. We're the real professionals. We're wearing our suits and you can trust us guys. We're not going to rehypothecate your Bitcoin. Just trust us. Let's consolidate all the Bitcoin into our hands because we're the professionals and we know what we're doing. And it really just goes to show that the dollar is in decline. And remember the world reserve currency status don't live for too long. It's roughly around a hundred years. And we are at that mark guys. The U S dollar is in decline. We are losing that control around the world and those in power. I don't believe that there are naive anymore. I think they're doing their best to gaslight the average individual out there into believing that everything is fine. And again, we have incredible levels of propaganda coming out from the federal government, from the corporate press and the dollar and, and rather America at large is not very much liked around the world. No one wants our treasuries. They're dumping our treasuries. No one wants to interact with the petro dollar. And yet people are coming out and saying that, Oh yeah, CBDC is going to fix this. A stable coin is going to fix this. And I am just here to tell you guys that no, it is Bitcoin. It will always be Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the only way out of this. And again, it's not left versus right. It's orange versus green. And the only way out of this is to use Bitcoin. We are seeing a move away from the dollar and as an American or rather anyone around the world, you do not want to get caught holding dollars. And we know that Argentina is kind of moving towards a dollar move, which I think would be a mistake, but currency competitions happening in real time is, is, is like the new name of the game. People do not want to hold treasuries. People do not want to hold dollars. They are looking for other assets. They're looking for alternatives. And of course the alternative is Bitcoin and they all roads lead to Bitcoin. So here we are more signs that there's cracks in the system, more signs that people do not want to hold dollars and the powers that be know this. So they're going to try to push us into a CBDC. They're trying to going to try to gaslight you into holding stable coins, but you should know that you need to opt out, opt into Bitcoin, saving Bitcoin, download Bitcoin wallets, take your Bitcoin off exchanges. This is the only way to protect yourself. I'm, I'm fully convinced of this and you need to do this now before you actually need it. Anyways. Uh, I'd like to go to Nanya first. What's your thoughts on all this stuffs considering that you said you moved here from Iran? Yeah. Um, as I said, I've been done with everything since 2016. I think it was after what they did to Bernie Sanders, we were huge. Me and my ex, we were huge supporting Bernie Sanders because everything he was saying was making sense. But then after we saw what, how they just got rid of him and used him as a scapegoat to push everybody towards voting for Hillary. And this whole shebang happened. We were like done. That's why we moved to Bali in 2017 and built our company called Novotan Studios, which it was me and my ex's company.
A highlight from Active Threat
"Which you should all be aware of. Why my generation hates Jews. My peers have been indoctrinated. She's a 21 -year -old, I think, at Stanford. You're familiar with this piece? No. Julia Steinberg. We have to have her on. I heard great things about her and her article is demonstrative of that fact. My peers have been indoctrinated to believe that Jews are oppressors. So even our mass slaughter is seen as justifiable revenge. I'm 21 years old and Jewish. Apparently 48 % of my peers want people like me dead. As of October 23rd, 64 % of 18 -24 year olds think what happened on October 7th was a terrorist attack. 77 % of us think, quote, It's true that Hamas terrorists killed 1 ,200 Israeli civilians by shooting them, raping and beheading people, including whole families, kids, and babies. But when asked, is this, in this conflict, do you side more with Israel or Hamas? 48 % said Hamas. 48 % of America's 18 -24 year olds. The left has done a good job. The left has been effective in shattering the ability to think morally in a generation of young Americans. Side with Hamas? Half? It is a poll. It is one I am familiar with. Let's see what, who put this out. It's a Harvard -Capps -Harris poll. Center for American Political Studies. The Harris poll. Wow. Half of America's 18 -24 year olds side with Hamas? Do you believe that? No. You don't believe it? What do you believe? I don't think they side with Hamas. They may... Well, even that, that's virtually as bad. No, it's not. Well, it is in the sense... No, siding with Hamas? Yeah, you're right. Siding with Hamas, okay. Well, I don't know the answer to that question. Does one believe a poll? The polls have been notoriously inactive. All right, well, we have to find how the question was praised. They have a lot of questions here about optimism, about their own life. Biden's approval rating remains just above 40 % as it has been for the last year, which proves there is no damage he can do to the country which would hurt that. GOP approval remains at about 50%. Democratic party approval, let's see, also underwater. Overall congressional approval ticked down to 30%. Here's an interesting part of this poll. Then I'll get to the Middle East. RFK Jr., Netanyahu, Haley, and Musk have highest net favorability. Isn't that fascinating? Donald Trump is the most favorable, but also one of the most unfavorable. Hillary Clinton is higher in the unfavorable. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., favorable 49%, unfavorable 30%. Joe Biden, favorable 45%, unfavorable 49%. Kamala Harris, favorable 44%, unfavorable 47%. And so on. I'm only mentioning these things to give credibility to this poll. It doesn't seem to be Republican or Democrat in its orientation. Most voters view Israel favorably just behind the U .S. military and police. See, that's a good thing to read. That's right, U .S. military is number one, 80%. Police, 67 % to 22. Isn't that something? And then Israel, 59, 21. But that includes all voters, including those above 25. Anyway, I'm going to continue with her piece. I am not surprised. In high school, my homeroom had an exercise where we made a T chart dividing various ethnicities, religions, and other identities into the categories of oppressor and oppressed. Isn't that fascinating? The indoctrination? By the way, all the anti -PragerU columns, nearly all, cite me as having said, yes, we bring doctrines to children, but tell me what doctrines are wrong. So in that sense, we indoctrinate. There is no education that doesn't indoctrinate. If teaching kids that they should treat their fellow human being decently, isn't that indoctrination? So isn't the issue in life? It's like saying Dennis Prager is pro -killing. Yes, I am. When you're killing a violent intruder in your home, who is about to murder or attempt to murder a member of your household, killing would be right. Killing is right in a just war. So saying Dennis Prager is for killing is dishonest. You have to tell what doctrines, in the case of my pro -indoctrination comment, I'm for. Women, oppressed. Straight people, oppressor. Black people, oppressed. This was on the, this was on a, you know what a T chart is? Okay. Then we reached the Jew category and we paused. This being a high school in Los Angeles, many of my classmates were Jewish. I recall we skipped it all together, but the T chart stayed on the whiteboard. If there were fewer Jews in that room, I'm confident that Jews would have gone squarely in the oppressor column. Social justice theory became part of everything. My senior English class was not about great literature, but about readings in critical theory, mostly about race and gender. Isn't that astonishing? I mean, I take that back. It's not astonishing at all. Isn't it depressing? She didn't learn about great literature. I had a non -academic weekly homeroom class in which we learned that every white person is racist and all men are evil. It took me a long time to shake off a hatred of men. It wasn't socially acceptable to disagree and no one really tried. My high school got a dean of gender studies and feminism. You hear that? How much of the education money now goes to such positions? Deans of gender theory, gender studies and feminism. At the time, one of her roles, that's fascinating, it was a woman, shocking, to help seniors write their college applications. In answer to the question, what is the most significant challenge society faces today, I wrote, it was identity politics. She gave me a note saying, that meant I was rejecting the advances of the civil rights movement. I changed it. Did you get that? Did you get that, folks? She's against identity politics and therefore, she is opposed to the advances of the civil rights movement. So, they're taught, at least in her high school, I assume in vast numbers of them, in a vast number of them, that the civil rights movement was about affirming racial identity. I understood the civil rights movement as saying your racial identity shouldn't matter. Your character identity, your individual identity, that's what mattered. Well, if Hamas are liberators, then racial identity is a healthy thing. My friends, I want to tell you about one of the most influential books of my life. In fact, it's on my list of the ten books that most influenced me. And it's just been re -released, George Gilder's Men and Marriage. George Gilder has been clear about the stakes for the family since 1974. Fifty years later, the need of the hour remains. Men who take responsibility for themselves. Men who love their wives. Men who raise their own children. Men who tackle the workforce. Motivated by their family and the needs of others. Without fathers, our civilization will simply sink back into the Stone Age.

Fresh update on "hillary" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"OK, I want to play this tape here, Anne, and then have you react to it before I do. Anne, do you want to introduce it? Just kind of tease out the circumstances of all this and then we'll play the tape. Yes, this is the Barrett Vice Dean Kristin Herman speaking in a meeting with me and the Dean, Tara Williams. And ASU has said over and over they did not say what you were and were not allowed to say. They did not censor speech. And things went sideways. I understood the deans didn't like you. They didn't like Prager. So I started recording. I recorded a lot. And this is just one of the recordings of Barrett Vice Dean Kristin Herman saying exactly what ASU has been publicly denying for months, publicly denying. And they wanted to censor my remarks. Play cut ninety one, please. What I want to know, Anne, because it's really for you as the executive director, that their conversation is about health, wealth and happiness, as you suggested it will be, and not about higher education or or anything that could be deemed as political or turned into a political platform, that we're not leveraging any of those conversations to make political statements that are going to alienate our audiences. Anne, that's some pretty powerful stuff as this has just been aired before this aired on the Seth Leibson show just on Monday, but to a local audience, this has never been aired to a national audience. So I've released the transcript of this to ASU publicly. And I guess people just have to hear it in the voice of an ASU dean that, look, you did try to limit what Charlie and Dennis and Robert could or could not say. I'm wondering, do they give these parameters to Ibram Kendi when he comes to campus, when the Clinton Foundation got paid, as we learned in the hearing on Monday, half a million dollars for Hillary Clinton to speak at ASU, did ASU give her parameters for what speech was and was not acceptable? There are two standards at ASU. Evidently. So, Austin, you hear this, not only is ASU lying, but they're in full retreat mode. You could tell Michael Crow and the PR crisis team there. They planted these stories yesterday, which I think is hilarious. Arizona Republic, one after the other. Republicans called to gut ASU funding over free speech. Is Twilight Zone level crazy? Two things. The clip that was just played earlier in the year when we had our free speech committee and was there testifying. And she said those words verbatim what the dean told her. Do not let Charlie or Prager or Kiyosaki bring up anything political. And I said, does the dean think that you're a mind reader and that you're going to prevent somebody from speaking about health, wealth and happiness? I should have brought up and I'm like, I'm like the reason why they say that. Don't let them talk about anything political because health, wealth and happiness are inherently good human conservative values that they despise. And so second thing here, ASU is in full retreat. We've got them on the ropes. You got people like Michael Crow who wrote a book this year about, you know, any politician that doesn't support all these climate change policies are idiots and morons. I'm like, that's the culture at Arizona State University. That's what they truly believe in. People who are not brainwashed, moronic Marxists like them. And so now you've got them sending out their because the media does a great job in Arizona playing cover for the Democrats and the higher universities. And we're done with it. And next legislative session, the issue should be very weary during the process coming up right now. Right. I mean, you guys have we'll go back into session in January and we got to get the budget. That's the most important job as legislators. And there is an appetite, Charlie, what you're talking about for this, that we can't just keep saying because conservatives for the longest time have run into situations or been approached by people like and that we've got to do a better job of protecting free speech on college campuses. Well, the rubber has met the road now. People demand answers. They deserve accountability. People like Ann and Lynn Blake deserve accountability. And so do the taxpayers of the state of Arizona. So, yeah, ASU is on the meat grinding row right now. So and what does a in-state Arizona student pay at ASU now? What is an in-state student pay? Eighteen thousand plus, plus, plus. So you're twenty five thousand easy all in and out of state is like ridiculous. Right. Sixty seven. Ridiculous. Yeah. Sixty, seventy. Hence ASU's push to have more international students. They're trying to appeal to be a university of the world to attract more high paying international students. That's why ASU has partnerships with the Chinese Communist Party, with different different countries all over the world. That's why they're trying to have learners that are not degree seeking, but that they're Yeah. So it is. And I'm going to ask some things off the top of your head. Can you just kind of help me understand the finances? So there's a one point two five billion dollar endowment. That's a big number. I'm sure some of its land and some of its restricted gifts and there's like a four billion dollar budget. Is that right, Austin? The whole place costs four billion dollars to run. That doesn't sound right. There's no way. Well, I mean, part of it, too, though, Charlie, is that every single year up until about covid, tuition consistently rose at Arizona State University and in the Arizona Constitution, it says that public universities tuition should be low to as free as possible. And that's not the case anymore. It continually rises, rises and rises. The regents raise tuition because they just become a rubber stamp for places like Arizona State University that and was talking about that attract international students to raise tuition. It's just a cash rack. It's just a racket and there's no accountability for it. So and they said they fired you because Tom Lewis pulled his money after the controversy around the event. Is that true? And do you have any evidence of left wing people that have lost their job recently? No, you know, it's a lie. It's not true. I even offered new diversified donor funding and the Barrett Dean wouldn't have the conversation. The provost of the university knows this. We had the conversation and she didn't even say, let's find a place for the Lewis Center to continue. The Lewis Center and its values, which were about traditional American values, hard work, personal responsibility, those are not welcome at ASU today. So it was not true that I was let go just because Tom Lewis pulled his funding for this grant agreement. Here's the here's the proof part of well, one of the pieces of proof. Tom Lewis was funding multiple positions and everybody else, all the faculty members of the Lewis Center that were also 50 percent grant funded, kept their jobs. But I was the one to go for the reason of the Tom's polling of grant funding. It's it's not true. It's not the case. But ASU stands behind that because it's it's easy to say. So the Honors College, which they say feels and functions like a small college within a large research university, is supposed to be the standard of excellence, right? They brag that it's the best of both worlds, that you get this kind of intimate environment, but you still get all of the benefits of Arizona State University. Can you just reinforce for our audience that is this the place of the pursuit of academic excellence or more and more ideological workshopping of a radical agenda? Is this a place where students are reading the great books and being immersed in Western values and getting their money's worth quite honestly? Or is it something that is closer towards trying to create more angry activists to deploy into the world? Well, it has the framework to be great. When I was a Barrett student, we read Plato and Socrates and Dante's Inferno. I mean, we read the classics and it was a small like a small liberal arts college within a big university. It was beautiful. But what happened is the same issue throughout ASU. They've hired radical members into their faculty. Faculty have academic freedom to teach whatever they want in their classrooms. And they've if you hire people that really want to teach witchcraft, guess what's going to come into the classroom. So, you know, Barrett had a great dean for the last 20 years, Dean Marc Jacobs, who believed in the balance of all of these things. And maybe he had some radical faculty, but he kept the overall big picture balance. But Barrett has a new dean who has not demonstrated any leadership. She's an administrator, Dean Tara Williams and the radical faculty have run rampant. You know, Michael Crow was offered a $50,000 bonus a year ago to make Barrett and W.P. Carey and Ira Fulton global brands, individually global brands. And I would say he's failing miserably with Barrett. It's very sad as an alumna to see what it has become, knowing what it could have been. I want to zero in on this for a second, because ASU to an untrained eye has become a model. People think it's this wonderful place. You know, Starbucks employees get like, I don't know, a free ASU course or something, right? Austin is something like that online course at ASU. But in the pursuit of expansion, Crow has obviously grown the university, but has he also introduced radical ideological elements, some of the worst left wing impulses imaginable? And it doesn't function, Austin, as a university as much as it does as almost a increasingly woke tech company with tens of thousands of customers that live on campus. Right. That's what it feels like. It doesn't feel like a college. Well, Michael Crow believes that he's like Elon Musk of Arizona when he's more closely to like Elizabeth Warren with what he believes in and what he tries to bring to Arizona State University and something that I just recently found out that ASU was ranked number one above like Michigan State, Penn State and MIT for global impact in advancing the United Nations sustainable development goals. What does that have to do with with producing the next generation of great Arizona leaders? And they're getting exposed to classes about witchcraft and having intercourse with the kraken. None of that prepares us to take on countries like China. And Michael Crow is leading the charge in the downfall of a great state like Arizona.
Police State: Dinesh D'Souza's New Movie Comes Out Today!
"Have Dinesh D 'Souza on the line. He has now created another extremely important film. And it is called Police State. And tragically, it's not about East Germany or China or Russia or Iran. It's about the United States. It's hard to believe that a movie title that could actually be made and be accurate. I never would have foreseen this. But it's true and it's a warning. I congratulate you, Dinesh, and welcome to the show. Thank you, Dinesh. As you sort of insinuated, not something to be happy about that we are at this juncture. But I thought that there are so many threads here, so many features of Police States that are observable right around us, that it was time to pull the threads together and issue a very urgent warning. One of the things that you do that I love, because I want to learn. That's how I measure other talk shows. Am I learning something? You asked the $64 ,000 question in your film, what are the beginnings of the Police State in the United States? So, I'd like to go over that with you because it will be fascinating. And I want to delve into that. So, you mentioned Waco and Ruby Ridge. Is that the genesis? Are they the genesis? No, I think that those are two early sort of flashpoints. And you recall, Dinesh, that recently when Hillary Clinton said that the MAGA republicans are like cult members, and she thought that some kind of formal deprogramming might be warranted. It flashed my mind back to the 90s and to Ruby Ridge. And I thought when those horrific events unfolded, and I remember watching them kind of mesmerized, buildings on fire, families being roasted alive. But a little part of me kept saying, and I think a lot of Americans kept saying, well, those people were kooks. Those people were cult members. God knows what they were doing at that ranch. And so, the dehumanization of those guys at Waco was a prelude to the horrific events that happened to them. And I thought of that when I heard Hillary Clinton because I thought, you know, it's not just that she's exaggerating. Some people were like, there she goes again, basket of deplorables. I think that she was very consciously dehumanizing her political opponents. And we know from history, we know from police states around the world, it's dehumanization that can lead to ostracism, that can lead to incarceration. Of course, in the Nazi case, could lead to extermination. So, this is taking things down a very bad road.

You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends, we are back to SPF trial coverage. And for those of you who are coming into this fresh or who just need a little refresher on what happened last week, the two biggest witnesses in the first full week of the trial were ex FTX co -founder and CTO Gary Wong and Alameda Research CEO at the time of its failure, Caroline Ellison. Now both of these folks were damning to Sam's case in different ways. Gary was bad for Sam because his testimony kind of showed the mechanics of implementing their fraud. He discussed when at various points in the history of FTX, Alameda's very special and privileged relationship with FTX was built into the actual code base. He also showed that it started extremely early, going all the way back to 2019. Now Caroline's testimony was damning because it showed just how much control Sam had over Alameda even after nominally he had stepped down from the CEO role. Her testimony also made him look like just an utter asshole, but of course being an asshole isn't illegal. However, the knowledge and control of Alameda is a different story. So after Caroline finished, the next big witness was Zach Prince of BlockFi. There were a few highlights. Prince said that he believed that Alameda Research was solvent based on the balance sheets that he had seen. According to Prince's testimony, BlockFi began lending money to Alameda in late 2020 on what he recalled to be quote very robust loan agreements. The loans increased in size throughout 2021 after Prince held a conversation directly with Sam. By May 2022, Alameda had loaned over a billion dollars from BlockFi and those loans formed a substantial portion of their outstanding loan book of between five and ten billion dollars. Now the problems began after the collapse of the Terra Luna ecosystem. At that point, BlockFi called in Alameda's loans, which were of course in part due to losses that BlockFi had sustained from the collapse of Luna. Alameda repaid that money after which BlockFi made new loans to the firm worth $850 million. Those new loans were partially collateralized, but Prince said that the collateral was stored on FTX. BlockFi also traded customer funds worth around $350 million on FTX and so in total, Prince claimed that BlockFi lost quote a little over a billion dollars in the collapse of FTX. That loss was enough to force BlockFi into bankruptcy just a few weeks after FTX went down. And while Prince said that at some point BlockFi might have still needed to fold, that without the losses associated with FTX, it was far from a foregone conclusion. Importantly, part of Prince's testimony was used to explain how crypto lenders worked. He noted that BlockFi customers explicitly agreed to their assets to be lent out, drawing a distinction to how FTX dealt with customer assets without their approval. Once again, SPF's defense struggled on cross -examination. At one stage, they spent multiple questions walking through BlockFi's due diligence process surrounding a particular set of loan documents. They appeared to be trying to make the point that the loans evidenced a failure of risk management at BlockFi rather than fraud at Alameda. An exasperated Prince had to remind the defense counsel that the loan documents related to a loan which BlockFi's risk management division had refused to make. Now more than any other testimony that I've seen, it felt to me like when it came to Zach Prince, the reportage inside the room and what the vibe actually felt like, especially to those who were sitting in the jury box, was really different than just reading about it in the transcripts. David Z. Morris, formerly of Coindesk and now reporting on the trial for Protos, wrote, "...one thing about today was that it was clear they were actually f***ing up." Now he expanded on that in a longer thread from Protos, quote, At the end of its second week of flailing, the Sam Bankman -free defense team took another battering today in court. Under questioning from prosecutors, former BlockFi CEO Zach Prince testified that his company would have been unlikely to lend to Alameda Research if its balance sheets had accurately reflected its loans to FTX executives and illicit borrowing from FTX customers. Prince told the jury, I think we wouldn't have worked with them because that's something that's not appropriate. Cross -examining Prince for Bankman -free's defense, Mark Cohen spent about 40 minutes attempting to chip away at that claim by walking Prince through a credit evaluation document. The document showed how BlockFi's risk team evaluated Alameda's balance sheet, specifically examining the risk of using FTX as collateral, in response to Alameda's request for more lending in August of 2021. The defense tried to characterize Prince as having overridden his own risk team in evaluating the loans to Alameda. The real fault, Cohen seemed to imply, lay with anyone stupid enough to trust his client. But after nearly 40 minutes of examining the loan letter, Prince informed Cohen that in fact the loan had not been made, with Prince in fact following the cautious recommendation of his risk team. Later loans were made to Alameda, but against much higher collateral requirements. This appeared to be an attempt to circumvent an earlier ruling by Judge Kaplan that the defense could not argue that weak due diligence was to blame for the failure of investments or loans to FTX group companies. Cohen seemingly hoped to make a similar point about the use of FTTS collateral, but simply didn't have his facts straight. It would not be a stretch to describe the moment as humiliating for the defense. Maybe summing it up even more actually was another tweet from David Morris, where he Today's said, episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still, too slow, only on for certain hours. Overly designed for some types of people, but not for others.

Next up, on Monday, FTX head of engineering, Nishad Singh, was called by the prosecution to give evidence against his former co -conspirator, SPF. Nishad is, of course, the third of three major collaborators alongside Gary Wong and Caroline Ellison, who are giving testimony under the terms of a plea agreement. Nishad's early testimony dealt with the expenditure and investments made by FTX. He confirmed that Sam was closely involved in directing all big -ticket spending by the firm. Alongside the widely publicized venture investments into Anthropic AI and Genesis Digital Assets, Nishad detailed a $200 million investment into a venture firm known as K5. Nishad said that Sam had attended a dinner hosted by K5, which featured high -profile guests including Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris' husband, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Kendall Jenner, and Kris Jenner. This was, of course, a party around the Super Bowl. After that K5 dinner, Nishad claimed that Sam said, quote, He was very impressed with their level of connection to influential celebrities and entrepreneurs. He thought it would be useful for FTX to leverage those connections, end quote. Sam later presented Nishad and FTX CTO Gary Wong with a spreadsheet that detailed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses and an additional billion dollars in venture funding that he wanted to pay to K5 and its owners. Now continuing along this line of questioning, after walking through a number of extravagant outlays, prosecutors asked Nishad about the infamous $30 million Bahamas penthouse where key FTX executives had all lived together. Nishad talked about the group apartment shopping together and noted that they had considered much less expensive residences. He said that after the group inspected the penthouse, quote, Nishad explained that there had been a quote substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's just super ostentatious. Nishad expressed his discomfort to Sam, who said, quote, He would pay $100 million for the drama just to be done with and go away. Nishad took this as a quote, pretty clear sign that I should shut up and we should move forward with this. Now separately, Nishad explained that Alameda accepted customer deposits from the very beginning even before the retail FTX exchange had launched. The earliest project was an over -the -counter trading desk. That system was configured for customer deposits to go to Alameda, which Nishad believed were then forwarded to FTX. Regarding whether Alameda was allowed to use customer funds for its own purposes, Nishad said, I didn't have an affirmative understanding, but using it would break common sense expectations from customers. Nishad then discussed his understanding of the allow negative feature, which allowed Alameda to run a negative balance on FTX and implicitly use customer funds. Nishad explained that he had coded the first version of the feature at the direction of Sam and Gary Wong. He explained that because Alameda withdrew many assets that they didn't hold, those withdrawals were quote, Necessarily coming from other FTX customers. Repeating what we all know, Nishad said that this broke with customers' understanding of Alameda's status on the platform. He said, quote, I remember affirmative descriptions from Sam and others that Alameda didn't have special treatment, and this would constitute a form of special treatment. Nishad also discussed the movement of Alameda's loans to an account where interest wouldn't be charged. He said that Sam was aware of the large amount owed by Alameda to FTX, but said that, quote, In theory, those balances are in banks. It's not something that they're borrowing in sort of the traditional sense. They're custody -ing it, so they shouldn't be charged interest. Let's move as a liability out of a location where it's being charged interest. Another part of the testimony had to do with the infamous FTX liquidation engine. During the height of its popularity, the FTX liquidation engine was spoken about in glowing terms. It was said to be so well constructed that it allowed FTX to seamlessly offer margin loans across multiple assets, which was a feature that was not present on rival exchanges. He said that, quote, Even in instances in which a customer account ended up negative, and the insurance fund, which is a sort of bailout pool of cash, was empty, the expected option for resolving the negative balance would be a clawback, but there was nothing in the code that would do that. Instead, the account would remain negative, and Sam or Gary or others would sort of manually handle it however they saw fit. Essentially, Nishad gave evidence that this fabled liquidation engine didn't actually exist. Then the prosecution moved on to the final months at FTX. Nishad claims that he only found out about the massive hole in Alameda's balance sheet in September once he was asked to help repair it. He said that Sam asked the senior executives to contribute their personal holdings of serum tokens to the balance sheet to, quote, Make it appear that Alameda always had more collateral than it did. This manipulated balance sheet was intended to be given to the CFTC. Nishad said that he ultimately didn't contribute his own tokens because it, quote, Felt wrong to attempt to trick a federal regulator. Nishad also recalled a conversation with Sam on the balcony of the penthouse where Nishad asked what would be done about the hole in Alameda's balance sheet. He claimed that Sam said, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. Net asset value is fantastic by almost any measure. It was super positive even if you don't include FTX and FTX U .S. equity. Nishad burst that bubble by noting that Caroline Ellison and Gary Wong had pointed out that Alameda had borrowed $13 billion and was unable to repay. Sam simply responded, right, that. We're a little short on deliverable. Sam added that the issue had been, quote, Taxing me some 5 to 10 percent of my productivity for this year. Nishad asked Sam, quote, What the hell the plan was? Sam responded with a variety of strategies, including selling off Alameda's illiquid assets, raising more money by selling FTX equity and holding on until FTX U .S. launched futures trading, which he believed would happen, quote, any day now. Nishad asked Sam if he considered cutting expenses, which Sam said he was working on. Nishad said he was, quote, blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed that five years of blood, sweat and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. And, you know, according to Sam's take, chances to rebuild this hole depended enormously on me continuing to try to make the company successful. And I knew that would require me betraying customers and employees. During September, while this was all coming out within Sam's inner circle, SBF planned a trip to the Middle East to attempt a long shot to rescue the company. Although the original plan was to put together a fundraising round for the company, Sam instead suggested doing a deal with Telegram. He said that they should buy $120 million worth of TUN tokens, which had been the subject of an SEC enforcement action in 2020, but which we're looking to relaunch. Alongside the investment, Sam had said that FTX engineers could build a payment network that utilized the token. Nishad said the plan, quote, made me extremely nervous. Getting even longer random illiquid tokens was not something I was excited about, especially when the cost would come from customers. Nishad also discussed political donations that had been made in his name. He said that FTX Digital Markets CEO Ryan Salem had access to his bank account for the purpose of making these donations. Nishad said that he was used to make donations, quote, for optics, advantageous that it was useful for my name to be associated with some donations, even if the end recipient understood they were really coming from someone else. Now, many people have pointed out that if the organizations or individual politicians accepting these donations knew they were coming from someone else, that would be extremely problematic for them. Finally, to close out the day, Nishad described work he had done to manipulate revenue data for FTX. He said that at the end of 2021, he had, quote, made transfers from one of Sam's companies to another to FTX to make it appear as though FTX had higher revenues. Prior to this, FTX had recorded around 950 million dollars in revenue for the year. Unsatisfied, Sam instructed Nishad to make these transactions to ensure that FTX hit a billion dollars in revenue for the year. The particular change was that Sam decided to charge his other company for staking serum tokens. Nishad said that he was instructed to backdate the transactions to make it appear that they had been charged throughout the year. Now, in addition to all these details, the other aspect of this testimony was sort of as a check on Sam's character. Sam had explained that he was friends with Sam's brother from high school and that Nishad had initially felt intimidated by Sam, who he viewed as a, quote, formidable and brilliant person. Nishad said, I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, but over time that eroded. Now, yesterday, Nishad faced cross -examination. And once again, it was not really that effective. A Slate article on Monday characterized the cross -examination so far like this. The cross -examinations have rarely, if ever, directly rebutted the government's severe allegations, which encompass wire fraud, money laundering and five conspiracy counts related to securities and commodities fraud, among others. More often, the attorneys repeat simple questions on matters the prosecution has already established before building their way up to potential conclusions that never seem to land. That characterization sort of held up here with Nishad. Matthew Russell Lee at Inner City Press on Twitter, who I can't recommend highly enough for the play -by -play coverage, characterized the cross -examination as meandering. Now, that said, Coindesk did write a piece yesterday called, for once, Bankman Fried's Lawyer Lands a Punch. The lead of that story is, Nishad Singh, a member of Sam Bankman Fried's inner circle, couldn't quite remember what he had told prosecutors about his conversation with the fallen cryptocurrency mogul and other FTX executives he said Tuesday in response to questioning from SPF's lawyers. The former Bankman Fried confidant's admission marked the first time since the trial began two weeks ago that the defense had seemingly managed to poke a hole in the case against their client, whose empire crumbled nearly a year ago. I think reflecting on what this testimony did for the prosecution, in many ways, it was similar to Caroline Ellison. In the same way, at one point, Caroline finally broke down and really gave the impression of a person who had been wracked by guilt with their knowledge of the things that they were doing. Nishad, too, sort of acted as a voice of consciousness in that he clearly had guilt around what he was doing, even if he continued to do it. You basically have this situation where everyone around SPF who knows about all these things that are going on is getting increasingly uncomfortable with the brazenness of them and yet is compelled or pressured by Sam to continue and just stop worrying about it. It really reinforces the idea that there was at the center of this story a central, dominant ringleader, which, of course, isn't really good for the defense. Now, the next big question is whether SPF himself is going to go on the stand in his own defense. There are hints that he might. In a Sunday night filing, Sam's defense team reiterated their request for better access to Adderall for their client. The defense claimed that Sam has been receiving a single dose before leaving jail on the mornings of court appearances. They claim this dose wears off by the time the trial begins each day, meaning that Sam has been unable to, quote, concentrate at the level he ordinarily would and that he would not be able to meaningfully participate in the presentation of the defense case. Their letter to the judge said that this lack of Adderall could play a critical role in determining, quote, the critical decision of whether Mr. Bankman -Fried will testify. Many commentators have taken the position that the defense has been floundering so far. They've struggled to discredit witnesses or present a coherent case during cross -examination. In fact, their performance has been so bad that some are beginning to wonder if the plan is to set up an appeal on procedural grounds. Alongside the practical issues with receiving adequate medication, in this letter, the defense have flagged one of the grounds for an eventual appeal. The idea that throughout the process, Sam has been denied his right to, quote, meaningfully participate in his defense. Investor Adam Cochrane certainly thinks that this is the gambit. He writes, PS, they don't actually give an F about his meds. They care about throwing out the trial. Vegan meals, lacking meds, weird medical hours. They'll probably try and claim some mental duress violating his right to compulsory process and self -defense. Does it work? Unlikely. But they want you to pity him. They want the jury to pity him. They want to throw every wrench they can into the gears of justice and grind it to a halt. Now, others were speculating about whether Sam could actually resist the lore of testifying in his own defense. Delphi Digital General Counsel Gabriel Shapiro wrote, imagine how epic it will be if SPF actually testifies. He could not even withstand cross -examination by Coffeezilla. Prosecutors will absolutely shred him on cross. Let's just hope he can be that stupid and narcissistic to give us one last show before he's put away for good. Of course, if Sam does make that last Hail Mary decision, you better believe we will be there to cover it. For now, that is going to do it for today's episode.

Thanks for tuning in to the Unchained Recap for Day 9 of the criminal trial for Sam Bigman -Fried. In devastating testimony for the defense, former FTX head of engineering Nishad Singh detailed instances of bullying behavior from ex -CEO Sam Bigman -Fried and numerous times when SPF used customer funds to fuel his spending spree. Singh described an organization that allegedly defrauded FTX customers by freely spending customer assets on ill -advised investments, sponsorships, and political action, all at Bankman -Fried's direction, and a leadership style that browbeat and belittled anyone who disagreed with him or expressed concerns. Singh's testimony echoed comments by the prosecution's other two star witnesses during the first two weeks, former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison and former FTX chief technology officer Gary Wong. I was blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed. That five years of blood, sweat, and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil, Singh said. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. Singh, who came across as earnest and is having a strong conscience, told jurors that SPF continued to spend excessively even after learning of an $8 billion hole in Alameda's balance sheet that mushroomed as the crypto market slumped following the collapse of the I deficit. learned of the hole and even after that, implicitly and explicitly, I greenlit transactions that I knew must have been digging the hole deeper and therefore coming from customer funds, Singh said. Singh, who was Bankman -Fried's younger brother's friend and had known SPF since high school, was initially intimidated by the defendant after joining Alameda in 2017. But he lost faith in SPF amid his dismissiveness and seeming dishonesty to where company's financial management. I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, Singh said. Over time, I think a lot of that eroded, and I grew distrustful. Singh described his increasing concern about Bankman -Fried's spending even as the company sank deeper into debt. I'd frequently go to Sam and express that I thought that the spend was too large or that it didn't make sense, in essence, a bad business decision. And I also would express that I felt kind of embarrassed and ashamed of how much it all reeked of excess and flashiness. It didn't align with what I thought we were building a company for. Some examples of the excess were that Alameda had invested $1 .5 billion into Bitcoin miner Genesis digital assets in early 2022, as well as $500 million into AI startup Anthropic and $200 million into incubation firm K5, founded by Michael Kives. The K5 deal accelerated after SPF attended a Super Bowl -related party in Los Angeles with several top A -list celebrities. Hillary Clinton, Doug Emhoff, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner, and Corey Gamble. Singh said SPF described the event as, quote, the most impressive collection of people he had ever seen in one location, adding that the FTX co -founder told him that if asked, K5 could probably arrange an FTX dinner with Elon Musk, former President Barack Obama, Rihanna, and Mark Zuckerberg in a month. When Singh saw the term sheet with K5, which proposed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to Kives and his partner Brian Baum, as well as $1 billion for their VC firm, he was shocked. Quote, I was worried that partnering with K5 and giving them this much money would be really toxic to FTX and Alameda culture, that every day I was actively trying to espouse, I felt we all were, that politicking and social climbing was not going to be rewarded. And here we were rewarding people in exorbitant amounts, Singh said. He added that he asked SPF to use his own personal money for the deal so that it wouldn't affect the culture of FTX. Singh also detailed his shock at the $1 .1 billion FTX spent on sponsorships, such as the naming rights for the Miami Heat basketball arena and endorsements from top celebrities, including Steph Curry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, and Larry David. He was also uncomfortable with the spending on real estate. For instance, before they moved into their luxury penthouse apartment, Bigman Fried and his future roommates argued over where to live. The group had initially chosen a more modest apartment, but SPF wanted to check out the penthouse. Quote, Sam really liked this one, Singh said. Sam's a fan of views, and there was substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's super ostentatious. When discussing it with SPF, Singh said, quote, Sam said that he would pay $100 million for the drama to just be done with and go away, which I took as a pretty clear sign that I should shut up. In September 2022, Singh had a discussion with the defendant about the lack of collateral Alameda had to support its futures trading. Singh determined that Alameda was short $10 billion of what was needed to support its trading positions and relied on its $65 billion line of credit to make up for this multi -billion dollar deficit. Bigman Fried instructed Singh to transfer SPF's Ellison's and Wong's personal SRM tokens, which were locked, and therefore illiquid, into Alameda's main trading account. Singh said the transfer was meant to fool the CFTC, or US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, by making it seem as if Alameda had posted more collateral than it had. Singh did not execute the transfer, saying that it felt wrong. He said, quote, I was fine giving up my personal assets. I'd taken on debts and given up my assets for the company countless times. But I understood the purpose of this exercise was to be, you know, to fool a US regulator and to fool employees of the company. And I wasn't comfortable doing that. Singh, who was freaking out about the possibility that FTX would be unable to meet customer withdrawals, had an evening talk with the defendant in the fall of 2022 on the palatial balcony of their luxurious apartment, which featured a swimming pool and several lounge chairs. In this talk, Singh said he was worried about Alameda's NAV, which was his euphemism for the hole, and Bigman Fried responded, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. NAV is fantastic by almost any measure. When Singh asked how much Alameda was short by, SPF said, quote, that is the wrong question to be asking, and then proceeded to talk about how much he could deliver within various timeframes. Around $5 billion in 24 hours, substantially more in several weeks. And after that, quote, again, substantially more. At some point, Singh said, Jesus fucking Christ. And Bigman Fried said that his shortcoming of several billion dollars had been taxing him about 5 to 10 percent of his productivity. While Singh responded, he thought it would hit him a lot harder. The prosecutor asked Singh why he didn't leave FTX. He said he considered leaving the company every day, but added, quote, how could I live with myself if my departure precipitated a fall that might have been unavoidable? Singh details how he tried to cut costs of the company and said that at first he was, quote, pleasantly surprised and felt he was able to cut a couple hundred million dollars in spend. But further conversations with SPF made him realize that what Singh felt was, quote, an obligation was, quote, not being taken seriously since SPF was unwilling to cut endorsement and sponsorship deals that meant another $1 billion was, quote, headed out the door. After SPF returned from his Middle East fundraising trip, Singh, who so rarely met with a former FTX CEO one -on -one, said that it was an annual occurrence, met with him privately again, this time in one of Sam's apartments. After beginning by stating he was not doing well and thinking of quitting, Singh asked SPF how it was going with NAV. SPF, who was standing in the kitchen with his back against the fridge, said he could raise anywhere from $0 to $5 billion. He told Singh the main plan was to make FTX a success and said to Singh, quote, that depends a huge part on you. You're one of the few people, Nishad, that can take that kind of work off my plate so I can focus on the rest of this. Singh admitted he had been afraid to ask SPF for the meeting and said that he felt the defendant was, quote, very mad and that the meeting was tense with, quote, long periods of silence. Then he listed some of what he called Sam's tells for when he's upset and how SPF showed them in this conversation. Quote, puffed out his chest, hands back. He was grinding his finger, closing his eyes, grinding his teeth or tongue in his mouth. And when he opened them to respond, he would sort of glare at me with some intensity. I ended up apologizing to him at the end for asking for the meeting because I could tell it was so unwelcome. Singh pleaded guilty to charges related to violating campaign finance laws, which involved letting donations be made at his name even though they were funded from Alameda or as a borrower from FTX. Some of these loans were used for Bank One Three's political donation campaign and to fund his brother's political action committee, guarding against pandemics. Additionally, he said he participated in falsifying and backdating FTX's 2021 revenue numbers for auditors. SPF wanted FTX's revenue, which stood at 950 million dollars for the year, to be one billion dollars because FTX's revenue would show up on a spreadsheet that would be presented to investors. SPF proposed creating fake revenue backdated throughout the year from charging for offering staking services of serum. When withdrawals began to accelerate on November 5th, Singh became, quote, concerned that this might spell doom and the end of our fraud. Since he knew customers who expected full access to their assets did not know that they were not backed. Although Singh seemed to have a strong sense of right and wrong, even he ended up doing things he wasn't proud of. Around this time, he sent SPF a signal message asking if he could, quote, make some fictitious transactions that it looks like I had paid off this amount that I owed. Singh explained that he meant backdated transactions, which was, quote, something I knew could be done because Sam had proposed it once to me in other contexts. Singh acknowledged this, quote, felt wrong and said he wasn't trying to excuse himself, but said, quote, I was in different levels of having a right mind throughout these days. On November 6th, he said a war room meeting gathered in one of Bankman -Fried's apartments. It was attended by Singh, SPF, Ellison, Wong, Romnick Aurora, and by phone, head of FTX Digital Markets, Ryan Salem, who all were workshopping a draft tweet thread by Bankman -Fried. Quote, there was a point when they were discussing whether or not to characterize FTX as solvent or well -capitalized. I felt very uncomfortable with both definitions, Singh said. I felt neither was true. Singh leaned over the couch to say something like, quote, I'm not comfortable with this. I'm recusing myself. He testified. They acknowledged in a kind of annoyed way and proceeded. Singh had wanted to halt withdrawals rather than make a statement about FTX's strength. He said, quote, I'd overheard in the conversation opinions that these tweets should be really strong, which I understood to be a euphemism for particularly misleading in such a way that will quell fears definitively. On November 8th, via signal chat, Singh and Bankman -Fried discussed the fact that lawyer Dan Friedberg was angry and that Salem might resign. Singh then wrote, quote, they may need to know that it wasn't a ton of people orchestrating it. In testimony, Singh explained, quote, I really wanted Sam to clarify what everyone's role in this fraud was. I wanted him to clarify that I wasn't orchestrating it and that I learned about it really late. I wanted Sam to clarify that he was orchestrating it. I was certainly guilty for participating in it since September, but don't feel I made the whole. And secondly, I wanted the state of my relationship with these people I loved and tried to do right by, to remain intact and for them to not hate me. It was during this part of his testimony that Singh revealed he had been, quote, suicidal for days shortly after his direct testimony ended, meaning that Tuesday morning he will face his cross -examination. Unchained will be back for more recaps tomorrow. And if you like, you can also get real -time updates on my Twitter feed at Laura Shin at around lunchtime and after 4 .30 PM when court lets out. Thanks and see you tomorrow.
RFK Jr. Backtracks on Calling the NRA a 'Terror Group,' Endorsing Dems
"It's clear that he's going to seek some support from conservatives. So as I said with the speaker's raise if you never fall in love with personalities and you fall only in love with outcomes i .e. how do they vote and do they do conservative stuff you will never have a problem. Oh but I love Trey Gowdy. I love Matt Gaetz. I love Allen West. I love this guy. Great! I don't care. All I care about is how they vote. All I care about with RFK as well is how he would vote and I'm reasonably confident that a guy who tweeted out that the NRA was a terror group has voted or supported publicly every Democrat of the last 20 or 30 years voted for Obama and endorsed every Democrat is not going to do any conservative stuff so when you don't fall in love with politicians and you stick with outcomes you will never ever be steered wrong. Jim if you would up queue for me cut seven here's RFK who doesn't seem to have an answer. Do you still think the NRA is a terror group? I support the second amendment like I do all the amendments of the Constitution. I didn't ask you if you support the second amendment you called in 2018 you said Parkland students are right the NRA is a terror group do you believe that? I don't consider the NRA a terror group. Do you I don't recall tweeting it in 2018 but if I did as I said Sean I don't consider them a terror group and I support the second amendment. Do you regret endorsing Al Gore John Kerry Barack Obama Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over the years. I got it. I don't have it. I don't recall endorsing Bernie Sanders I like Bernie Sanders I voted
Hillary Clinton Suggests 'Deprogramming' of Trump Supporters
"Clinton and Bill Clinton of the Clinton librarian crime who've made tens of millions of dollars subsequent to their time in Washington DC go ahead break with him you know because at some point you know maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members but needs something to happen and how do you do that all right that's where I want to go with this first of we all need to get our history straight deprogramming of the cult members I want you to hear this next cut then I'm going to bundle it all together cut 12 go and they are determined that they will continue to vote for him attend his rallies his merchandise because for whatever reason he and very nasty negative form of politics resonates with them maybe they don't like migrants maybe they don't like gay people or black people or the woman who got the promotion this is just amazing to me because this is the history the Democrat Party that's why I wrote the book this is their history the inhumanity of the Democrat Party Hillary Clinton the inhumanity of her I want you to listen to some of the Democrats in the media when you hear what they have to say now of course they've apologized since because they grift and they want these primetime TV shows and so forth and the corporates are more than happy to give it to them but I want you to listen to something that was sent to me by a dear friend Mehdi Hassan we played a clip
Hillary Clinton: Trump Supporters May Need to Be ‘Deprogrammed’
"Coincidence. How bananas is this? Hillary Clinton comes out the next day, almost as if Democrats have this all coordinated gives an interview to Christian Hall on my at CNN and proceeds to give the extra warning that, Oh, you Trump supporters, man, you guys lose this next election. to We have seek some kind of deprogramming or something like that. Oh my gosh. Come on, Dan. Stop spouting conspiracy theories. Okay. Uh, Jim, if you would, uh, Hillary Clinton with Christiana, saying I can leave that you would very strong partisans in both parties in the past. Uh, and we had very bitter battles over all kinds of things, gun control and climate change and the economy and taxes. But there wasn't this little tale of extremism waving, you know, wagging the Aug of the Republican party as it is today. And sadly, so many of those extremists, those mega extremists, take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure. He's only in it for himself. He's now defending himself in civil actions and criminal actions. And when do they break with him? You know, because at some point, you know, maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the members. But something needs to happen.
A highlight from Approved How Andy Warhol Worked

Our voices are as varied, nuanced and dynamic as the Black experience and stories should never be about us without us. Find NPR Black Stories, Black Truths on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts. Hi, I'm Hillary Clinton, back with a new season of my podcast, You and Me Both. On this show, I'll be talking to people I admire about one of my favorite subjects, getting things done. We'll hear from folks in positions of power like democratic leader, Hakeem Jeffries, but also writers and actors and really anyone who keeps doing the work. So please join me. Listen to You and Me Both on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to Stuff You Should Know, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh Clark and there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant. Jerry's here and this is Stuff You Should Know. Oh, and look, there's Andy Warhol. Yeah. And Eddie Sedgwick and Lou Reed. Yeah, and Jackie Curtis and Valerie Solanas, the whole gang's here. We did one on that, right? And the Scum Manifesto? Yes, we did chapter 18 of our book is on the Scum Manifesto and Valerie Solanas shooting Andy Warhol. We did not do it as a podcast yet. Nope. We probably never will. Oh, okay. But I think Chuck, before we get into this, we should dispense something because I think it's very instructive about Andy Warhol. He is, probably the most famous quote from him is that in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. And he didn't say that. Even in an interview in 1980, he said he didn't say it. He used it in, I think, a 1980 or 68 exhibition, like the notes, but it wasn't his. There is at least four other people who can make a claim to having said it first. And that says a lot about Andy Warhol, that he was not shy or embarrassed or even secretive about taking other people's ideas, even asking other people for ideas to use in his own work. And then it also shows that the idea that he said that and that that's so associated with him and his whole ethos, it also demonstrate that he himself was one of his own works of art. His own brand, his own image, his own appearance, everything about him. He was one of his own works of art. And those two things are all captured in just that one little quote. Yeah, that's a good way to put it. A little bit about his childhood before we get to the good stuff. He was born, actually, Andrew Warhola. He would drop the A years later. He was born, and it's interesting, you think of Warhol as a contemporary artist, which he is in some ways, but he was born in 1928.
A highlight from Rising Auto Theft Rates: Urban Consequences and Solutions
"Well, you see how easy this is now. Now you look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks, this is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporations, but guess who's getting the guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton Foundation gets paid the rebuild Welcome right. to the podcast. We are in the same studio today, which is kind of nice. So thanks again for downloading. If you're just listening, if you're watching or watching the clips, uh, thanks for watching as well. And just for a quick mention, so I don't forget, if you haven't downloaded our app yet, I'm noticing we're getting a lot of downloads and the cool thing is when the morning Mike's program is going Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I'm the, seeing the view count go up and up and up, which is awesome. So I know we're only, you know, we're still in the dozens. I'd like to get into the hundreds and eventually thousands, um, but it's a cool program. If you haven't listened to it, it's a quick 15 minutes to quick by morning, run down three days a week of the top five topics, three minutes each. Do a great job. They do an awesome job when we're, when we fill in the stuff. We screw the whole thing up. Yes. Yeah. We, we blow the whole, the whole, uh, the schedule, but, um, but they do awesome and they're funny. I love it. It's a quick, you know, down and dirty 15 minutes, top five items of the day. And now you get your day started off on the, uh, they, you know, I think on the right foot, they were saying this week, like, Oh, it's so negative all the time, but I think they're hilarious. They take the negative stuff that's going on, but of course the negative stuff isn't the news. Yeah. Yeah. That's what we're seeing. I mean, carjackings again, Rochester had another, you know, record night. I mean, it's incredible how that was going on. And so it's amazing is, is like the Democrats just sit around and watch this happen in every city and every city. It's insane. Yeah. I sent you an article earlier this morning about Philadelphia. Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.
A highlight from Republican Debates, Election Predictions, and Media Criticism
"At some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick along with my partner, Mike Speraza. We are always excited to be here, Mike. Um, we are here after the second Bill's win. Yeah. Yeah. We will, we'll keep it at that. Every time we talk very little, things go well. So let's, let's keep it at a win and big game Sunday. Miami. What should be right. A massively popular game. I mean, when they put up 70 against Denver and we, we basically, did we shut out the three points? Three, three. Okay. We held, held Washington, the Washington commanders to only three. That should be a really, really dynamite game. So. Had to change their name due to political correctness. I know, I know. And we had some conversation about that. The people I was watching the game with were reflecting on, I guess the good old days when the, the nicknames of teams just didn't seem to matter as much, but it matters now. Now they want to take down statues. You're an Iroquois guy. They're taking that name away. The chiefs because apparently saying chiefs is very, uh, politically incorrect. I mean, a leader. You can't be called the leaders anymore. Maybe it'll be the Iroquois comrades because everyone's got to just hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Yeah. And, and you know, nobody gets a gender anymore. Nobody can dominate one or the other. Even if it's a sport, there really might not even ever be winners or losers. They might not even keep score anymore in sports. Like it's just going to be for the experience of it trophy for the trophy for the trophy. Line them all up. They're all going to look exactly the same. There'll be gender neutral trophies. When will we have a they, them team name? Like the, the Washington they, thems, like when, when, I mean, I know that sounds outrageous, but that's where we're headed. Yeah, it's true. It's going to be comrades. Friends. Yeah. The friends, the Iroquois friends, the Iroquois comrades. It literally is heading that way though. Something where you go, what is, what is this sport? Like we don't even know based on the name, what the sport is. We don't even, yeah. You won't know. Like usually you could derive some more information from things like that. Oh, no, no, not anymore. No, you're going to have to dig real deep. You're going to have to show up at these events and, uh, you know, maybe wear a nice hoodie and a pair of shorts at the events. Yeah, I agree with you. And, uh, you know, maybe right after you went through the Senate chambers to vote on something, you can head and do a game with your hoodie and shorts on. Anyway, the next one, the last thing I'll say is the next one will be the Patriots. They'll be getting their name taken because that represents Donald Trump and his movement. We got to take away the name Patriot, right? That'll be the next one. There you go. You know, I just, I can't with these people anymore. It's really getting to be absurd. Yep. Totally. So, uh, Mike, let's start with this one. A second Republican debate coming this Wednesday night, September 27th, and Dana Perino, who I've always enjoyed listening to. Um, she will be joining Stuart Varney and Ilia Calderon at the Ronald Reagan library. presidential Suitable place. I love it. Yeah. And, uh, I, we were just chatting a bit before the podcast, so let's just line this up. All right. I don't know the order, but we're going to have Pence, Christie, DeSantis, Rama, Swami, uh, Doug Burgum made it Dougie Dougie. Um, who is that? Who else? I'm I've got five Nikki Haley. Thank you. And then, uh, there should be one more. Um, I did pens from, let's write this down. One more time for everybody. Pence, Rama, Swami, right? DeSantis. How do I not remember? Tim Scott, Tim Scott. Thank you. So, so seven this time, um, not Asa Hutchinson, I think you said he, he didn't make it. Didn't qualify. So, um, of course the big elephant in the room is that Donald Trump again will not be there. Just tell me your thoughts, I guess, on this next upcoming debate. Are we going to hear anything different? Is there any going to be anything that really makes people go, Whoa, this guy's really racing to the front or female. Um, if it's Nikki Haley, anyone going to race to the front after this one? I really, I mean, I think we're kind of wasting our time here and I'm not saying it as a, as a Trump voter. I'm just saying it realistically. Right. I mean, at this point, the lead is 40 to 50 points. Nobody makes up that ground than a debate, right? Like Nikki Haley had a great debate last time. She's still polling single digits. Right. I don't agree with Nikki Haley stance on a lot of things, but she, she fared well in that debate and she really didn't grow or fall behind anymore. Right. So I think that's the tough part. When we look at these debates, the Donald Trump in the 2015, 2016 campaign years, that is your like unicorn, right? Where, where you just go up there and go bananas. And then you end up, you know, taking over the field. The difference was there was no Donald Trump in that election, right? Like you had a Jeb Bush, but he wasn't the guaranteed slam dunk candidate right now. You have Donald Trump, Mike, and he is the guaranteed slammed on Canada. The only one that we thought maybe had a chance was Ron DeSantis and he has crumbled mightily, whether you like him or hate him. It's just the facts. He's, he's in trouble. Right. I mean, so what, what are we accomplishing with these debates other than kind of a, I guess I'll say wasting our time. Yeah. And I, I just, I just think it's worth breaking this down a little bit. Like what is it that people like you and I think that these others are just inferior to a guy like a Donald Trump? Like, and I'll tell you my opinion first. Mine is I just don't think they'll win. And I just feel like more and more people need to, you got to vote and expect that the conservative Republican candidate in this case wins. And I don't think any of these other people could, could actually win. I don't think they have enough, you know, experience. They don't have the fortitude that a Donald Trump has. Well, I think that that to me is, is there's two reasons why I'm voting for Donald Trump, right? Number one was I thought he had a very good four year term other than the COVID 19 issue. And I, I'm telling you right now, I say this to people all the time. If it was Ron DeSantis, if it was Donald Trump, if it was Hillary Clinton, that, that, that whole debacle was, was a disaster and there was no way you were going to look good in that debacle. I'm just telling you. Yeah. Number one, but that was a Trump fault that I have. And if I ever talked to him, I would tell him that that I do not agree with what he did with COVID. It's easy for me to say that now, but, but at the end of the day, he had a great four year term other than that, in my personal opinion. Number two is every time they've tried to knock him down at the knees, Mike, that has made me want him back more, right? The, the every time they indict him, I want him back more, right? Every time they try and silence him with gag orders, I want him back more. This is how I think a lot of conservatives are feeling. And at this point, it's kind of like, okay, is Rhonda, here's what my other point, I don't mean to keep going on, but at the end of the day is whether it's Ron, DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, or Donald Trump, I'm going to use those three for a second. They will be treated the exact same way by the media, by the Democrat party. It doesn't matter who that candidate is. It doesn't matter. Right. People always say like, Oh, but, but Trump's hated. If DeSantis is a candidate, he's already taken crap from the leftist media, right? Like if he's the candidate, he's going to, it's going to be open up another can of worms. I don't think it matters. The reason why we got to go with Donald Trump is he's been there. He's been able to handle it. We know that whether you like him or not, he's handled the media and he's handled the Democrats well. And we need that experience. This is the election of our lifetime. And I will say that now, this is the election of our lifetime. We need to win. Dana Perino says, I believe the economy will feature prominently because we know that that is the biggest concern and preoccupation that is worrying Americans. And she says in many ways, in my opinion, the economy is the thread that runs through all of these other possible topics. For example, if you're concerned about crime, one of the issues is what kind of resources do you have and are you willing to use in order to help deal with that? I think she's spot on. I think when it comes to the economy, the economy sort of is the fuel and whether you then have a notion to, you know, actually shut down the border, improve childcare, improve education, then the, the economy obviously is the main thread that actually everything else seems to branch off of. If you have a lot of people working, for instance, you're going to have a thriving economy because supply and demand is going to balance out. You're going to have lots of products and services to offer and a lot of people can afford these things. Right. So, uh, I, I agree with her. Plus it is Fox business that's hosting the event. So might lean a little bit more toward economics. Yeah, I think it should. I agree with you. I mean, at some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas at some point, you know, and I say, I've said this to you, Mike before, going to get groceries now at times, like they ring all the stuff up and I'm like, Holy crap. I bought, I have a cat. I bought five cans of cat food. They're, they're the size of like a lacrosse ball, not even. And it's like $5 for five cans. I'm like this, this thing costs more than my kids at this point. This cat's going to be very thin. It's going to be out of crash diet. I mean, but seriously, how do people, Mike, that don't make money? And I say this in a sad way, like how do people that don't make money survive? Even going, you go to a local fast food restaurant for two people. My wife and I it's 30 bucks. I'm like, what the hell happened out here? I told that is what's going on. And that's scary. Yeah. When they have to make those kinds of hard choices. Right. Uh, all right. So, uh, let's move on. So speaking of Trump, we're talking about these other seven candidates that will be there Wednesday, this Wednesday night, nine to 11 PM in the second Republican debate, Donald Trump will not be there, but this came out like in a Washington post poll. Trump is now up 10%, uh, over a potential run against Biden, 10 % double digit. Now if you just pin Trump against Biden again, first your thoughts, and then we'll go a little deeper into this. Well, I'm not surprised. Um, I think, I think Americans are getting sick and tired of it. I think Americans are worried about our futures. I think the migrant crisis is hurting the Democrat party because you have liberal places like New York city that are waking up saying, Oh my God, we can't do this anymore. And there's like 10 ,000 migrants in New York city, not 10 million. Right. So like, like it's starting to click, I think with certain people, number one, number two, Mike, I think it's hard to hide Joe Biden's cognitive decline, right? The left can say whatever they want in the media. You just can't, when you fall over on things, when you do talk like that, I mean, they, it's a problem. It's a real problem and it's visible. Um, do I trust these polls? Yes and no. I think, if I think America is as smart as I think they would, the polls should be probably higher, like 30 % lead for Trump. Um, but I think the numbers that keep growing in Trump's favor, the margin of error is not that big, right? Michael, like you look at the Republican primary polls, the margin of error is not 40%, right? He's up 40%. So even if they're off by 20%, he's still up 20%. The same thing's starting to happen in these head to head polls with Biden. It started, you know, Trump down, then it was Trump even, then it was Trump three, five, now it's 10. I mean, that's a lot. Yeah. And so I want to read a little bit here. So the post ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage in the election cycle. This is, by the way, the Washington Post little write -up, uh, after the poll was done. Um, so this is, this is actually humorous. Although the sizable margin of Trump's lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest to virtual dead heat, the difference between this poll and others as well as the unusual makeup of Trump's and Biden's coalitions in the survey. So Mike, the more words, the muddier this all gets, right? It sounds like excuses coming up, right? It sounds like Kamala Harris. It really is. It's like, yeah, total word salad. Um, I just said suggested is probably an outlier, right? So, so this, this I thought was interesting. Um, Byron Byron York of the Washington examiner said the post dumped on headline news in quotes from its own poll. So basically they do a poll. They say that their poll is likely an outlier and, and he, he goes on to then say Washington Post sub heads suggests its own poll may be an outlier. That may be true, but they put no such disclaimer in headline three years ago when they published a poll of Wisconsin, right before election day in 2020, showing Biden up 17 points on Trump, 10 points more than the average of other polls at the time. That was real clear politics, president Tom Bevin. So, so funny to me, so interesting, right? Even when they try to do something where they want to take part in the polling process and inform all of us as Americans, Ooh, that's not really where we wanted to see that. That's likely an outlier folks. Yeah. Oh, Donald Trump's winning. Shit. That doesn't count. Okay. What are we going to do? Next one. Okay. These were registered voters. What are we going to do? This is 10 points. Holy shit. What are we going to say? Let's just say it's an outlier. Oh damn. That was a fake poll. Oh, those stupid polls. Yeah. I mean, and it might, I'll say this before we get onto another topic on what's, what's, you're starting to see it all come together. It's like, it's like when they see, you know, hurricanes forming in the ocean, right? We're starting to see it now. The polls are shifting to Trump. Now we have Hillary Clinton coming out saying things like, Oh yeah, who's to say Putin won't medal in the election in 2024 again, right? You have others saying like, Ooh, we got to get Trump off the ballot or people saying, let's indict Trump again for this or that let's put gag orders on him. It's all coming together. Now the new thing too, Mike is, Hmm, let's indict the Bidens and let's see if we can get, we can get a Joe Biden off the ticket. We've used him, we've abused him. Now we're getting them out of here. It's all, it's that wave in the ocean. It's that hurricane forming in the ocean. That's what's happening. And I believe that because why, why would Hillary Clinton come out and say, if you're so confident right in the 2024 election, if you're so confident and Trump's an idiot, he's never going to make it again and get rid of them. Why are you now saying, Hmm, maybe Putin will medal in the elections again. Why would you say that? Right. Right. And by the way, this is the same guy that's richer than ever because his country has been able to sell oil at a high rate since Biden's been in office. This is the same country that has had its way with the Ukraine walking in there and taking over land since Biden's been in there. Why would, why would Putin medal in the election to get in and probably in his mind, the nut job of Donald Trump back in office, it may drop a nuke on him. Why would he want Trump back in office? Ask yourself that question. Don't have to, if you have any sense at all, then you don't even have to ask that. Um, so anyway, let's see what the next number of polls start to reveal. Let's see if, let's see if polls stop coming out, Mike, right? Because once you have one that's got Trump winning by double digit, maybe they just start to say, polls are stupid. Polls are for racists. You're homophobic. If you read polls, I mean, we'll see. Or they come out with some poll from the middle of nowhere. That's like Biden up 35 points on Donald Trump. Right, right. This was from registered voters in the white house. Yes. We interviewed seven people and it was six to one, six to one. And the other one we fired, we don't even know who that was. Yeah. So, so let's go to this now. Every once in a while, Mike, I have to do this CNN, right? I go to the cnn .com site. I just got to see what they're finding note newsworthy, noteworthy, whatever you want to say. And honestly, and I've often reported this, I'm often in disbelief at what they aren't reporting. In this example though, I was like, Oh, a few stories down. Here's a story, Mike, why more women are choosing not to have kids. So right away I'm thinking, Oh my gosh, these are the most unlikable people, the most anti traditional family structure people ever. They probably don't want to have a relationship at all. They don't want to ever have true, you know, intimacy with anybody cause they just can't do it. They're just nasty. They're mostly on, you know, just awful. These lots, so many of these people. So I go on to read a little bit of this and you know, this is, this is someone named Diana Volek who, who never, who was never someone who dreamed of becoming a mother, right? And these are just some of the reasons given. They don't want the responsibility of being a parent. They fear a lack of support. They like their life as it is. They're still judged for being child free. So so even when they don't choose to have children, right? So I'm like looking at this and then suddenly I go, wait a second. This was published at midnight, uh, basically Sunday or Monday, you know, September 25th. That's that's now as we record editor's note, this story was originally published in August, 2021. Some details such as the ages of those interviewed remain the same as they were when the story first published. So you're telling me right away, I thought, is the Hollywood writers strike? Is it bleeding into CNN now? Cause there aren't enough stories. There aren't enough people to write like modern stories. There's not enough news. They had to pull a story from two years ago to talk about why many women are deciding not to have kids. Like how pathetic is that? How pathetic. This new trend too, of like, it's cool to just say, screw it. I don't want to have a family is the weirdest thing ever. And then we wonder why these people are miserable, right? I mean, again, is parenting easy? I'm a new parent. Mike, you know that you, you parented two girls for, you know, they're what? 25, 22, right? So you've had, you've had 25 years of parenting experience. I've had, you know, almost a year. It's the most enjoyable thing ever. Right? I mean you're finally, it's good not to be selfish. It's good to take care of somebody else and love somebody else. Right. And I'm not saying you don't love your spouse, but your spouse is an adult relationship. You have to have a relationship with a baby, which turns into a toddler, which turns into an adolescent, a young adult like that. There's nothing more special than that. You should want that. Instead it's like, Oh, kids are stupid. I'm going to be so rich. Really weigh me down. Yeah, yeah, sure. Okay. They're going to weigh me down. I want my independence. I don't want to be responsible to another human being. I've got myself to worry about and treat and, and you know, I don't know, a door like I get like, that's fine. I want to see the next story though be why many women are deciding that having a child is rewarding. It can become a very loving, you know, yes, you have to be responsible. Like it just was so gross to me like that. And two years ago, this isn't even news. This is like, Oh my gosh, we got to fill these headlines. What do we get out? Pull that one again. We don't like kids. We don't want anyone, you know, raising children, my God for, you know, I'll say this though, Mike and all seriousness too. Like, yes. Is, is it fun being a college degenerate and booze and all the time and having a blast? Sure it is. We all did it right. I mean, yes, of course it's a fun thing. Is it fun to not care if you can go to bed at 2am or 5am or 5pm? Sure. That's great. But at some point you have to mature as an adult, take your job seriously, take your family seriously and care about things like I always say this, Mike, and this is something I've brought up a million times. Think about being, you know, if you want it, like if you didn't want to have kids, I'm not saying people that can't have kids cause I feel for them. But if you, if you didn't want children, cause you didn't want the responsibility, what do you do in your sixties and seventies with no family? Like that breaks my heart, honestly. Right? Like I, what my relationship with my parents, my wife's with her parents, like it's, it's fun, right? It's, you're a family. You get to do things together and you get to enjoy each other. Who doesn't want that? I just don't get it. Well, there's a lot of people in Washington that actually have spouses and children and grandchildren. And clearly there is not a lot of love and support going on between all of them. Because some of these people, I mean, we know who we're talking about, the Mitch McConnell's, the Joe Biden's, they would not be in front of microphones if people actually cared about them. They would not let those loved ones go through what they go through on a daily basis, unless they have no connection, no personal connection at all. Um, all right. AOC. She's almost the last story of our day, but there's one more after this. So we got a bonus. We do a bonus story here, breaking news. So AOC wins the hypocrisy award mic for this, uh, at least this week, maybe the year on this one decade, this is hilarious. And, um, I'll just set this up for a second. So here she was on CBS's face the nation. And, um, she was discussing president Biden's plan to visit the Michigan auto workers on Tuesday. So host of CBS's face, the nation, Margaret Brennan points out a couple of interesting facts about AOC and her selection of vehicles. So let's go ahead and play that. Yup.
A highlight from All The Polls Spell Great News For Donald Trump
"What a wild weekend. You can't make this stuff up. The Washington Post produces a poll that shows that Trump crushes Biden head to head. And then the Washington Post itself says, now, don't believe the poll. It's probably an outlier. They trash their own poll. They're so worried about the momentum that this is giving to Donald Trump that they're trying to discredit their own work. You know, these aren't cheap. They spent considerable money on this poll, thousands of dollars, and their takeaway after the poll points towards Trump defeating Biden by 10 points nationally. The Washington Post says, oh, it's weighted in a polling. You should hear the never Trumpers. You ought to hear people trying to distance themselves. I mean, they're running around in Washington, D .C. with their hair on fire. Funny thing about polls. We should learn by now not to believe them or trust them. Polling showed that there was going to be a huge red wave in 2022. So we know by now that doesn't always work out. However, in this case, what it does do is provide a semblance of momentum for one Donald J. Trump. And in this case, the perception can become the reality. The momentum keeps going. He keeps building. He keeps growing in popularity. The numbers keep soaring. And again, it's more of a perception thing than it is reality. Here's a reality. can The Democrats scream about a rigged election all they want, and nobody bats an eye. If anybody on our side questions the outcome of an election, we're crazy election deniers who ought to be in jail. But when Hillary does it, it's A -OK. Check this out. Here's Hillary sitting down with circleback Psaki, who's got her own show now over on MSNBC. Listen to Hillary still squealing about election interference and Russian collusion. Vladimir Putin has obviously your friend, your friend and mine. He has intervened in our election in the past. It's not something, as you experienced firsthand, it's not something we talk about a lot. Do you fear that that is something that could be happening for 2024? And do you think we should be talking about it more? Well, I think we should be talking about it more because I don't think despite all of the, you know, deniers, there's any doubt that he interfered in our election or that he has interfered in many ways in the internal affairs of other countries, funding political parties, funding political candidates, buying off government officials in different places. So that is his opus, you know, his opus operandi in the sense that he hates democracy. He particularly hates the West and he especially hates us. Now, you know what I love about that? Her use of the word deniers. You talk about projection. So what she's trying to claim is if you say that Trump won legitimately in 2016, you're not a denier when the truth is they're the she's the election denier and she thinks it happened in 2016 and she thinks it's going to happen again.
Scott Presler: We Don't Need the Government, We Need Active Citizens
"Because I was mad but you know I wasn't mad at President Obama I was ultimately mad at myself I said Scott where were you registering where voters were you getting out the vote where were you helping to make sure that we were electing publicans into office and I realized that my inaction meant that I was the problem and so I became the solution by getting my first job in politics in 2014 I I moved halfway across the country to Texas to elect now Governor Greg Abbott and then realized how important it was that we win back the White House in 2016 because I was always forward thinking focusing on the Supreme Court and I never wanted Hillary Clinton to set foot in office ever again as you know and so I dedicated two years of my life to electing Donald J. Trump as the 45th President and it really was Trump who changed my life in 2019 because he was talking about the city of Baltimore Maryland and again the same inaction that I felt in myself in 2012 I was reminded of by society's reaction to Baltimore because because everybody was tweeting they were posting pictures they were getting likes and clicks from posting videos and of Baltimore I thought to myself okay you're gonna go do a trash cleanup and I I thought was it going was to be me my mom dad but the tweet that I posted on social media it went viral and I was oh but within seven days we organized a cleanup in Baltimore on on a Monday and we got 200 volunteers from all across the country that came together in an act of love and we picked up 12 tons of trash in 12 hours in one single day and I thought to myself Dan I don't need the government to solve my problems what I do need is concerned citizens coming together as a community and we can do
A highlight from Mike Signorelli
"Trump calls Florida heartbeat bill a terrible mistake, and Mike Pence talks war with Russia. So I think if you will allow me to speak critically of Donald Trump for five minutes, I will speak critically. No, no, no, no. Look, you know, and I know, everybody listens who to this program knows that I don't think Trump is perfect. I think he ought to be the next president. And I think that, as you know about me and about many people listening to this program, that we are radically pro -life. We think it's a moral issue. And I think that Trump has made, I think he misspoke. I think it was, I don't know. Well, talk about it so people understand what we're talking about. Donald Trump went on face the nation and said that the heartbeat bill Ron DeSantis bravely signed in Florida was a terrible thing, a terrible mistake. And he said that he wouldn't commit to supporting any kind of federal restriction on the taking of unborn life. And he said with characteristic real estate bravado, well, I'm going to have policies that are going to make everybody happy. Everybody's going to walk away happy from the table. That is not how things work. When you're talking about life and death issues, Mr. President, that is how things might work. If you're negotiating over ownership of a golf course. All right. All right. Each of you is going to get nine holes. Okay. You'll each get nine holes. It's wonderful. You got, you've got half a golf course, half a loaf is better than none. But we remember from the story of Solomon, half a baby is not better than none. In this case, we're talking about cutting the baby in half. Literally we're talking about should abortion, should the pro -life position be, we want a bad abortion after maybe 15 weeks, which would only get rid of maybe 8 % of the abortions in America. If that's the pro -life position, it's not worth a damn thing. That's the law in Germany. That's the law in France. That's the law in Belgium. All these countries where euthanasia is now taking over. Having a 10 week, a 15 week abortion ban solves absolutely nothing. It just means the women who are so dopey, they don't even know they're pregnant until like 18 weeks won't be able to get abortions. That's all it means. He's really just punishing the stupid. It's not saving a significant number of babies. I don't know who Trump is getting his advice from on the abortion issue, but they're not on our side. They are like the Jared Kushner. They're not on our side. What Trump is saying is a complete loser position. It's like saying we're going to build the wall. We're going to build the wall with the Mexican border, except every 20 feet there's going to be a gap. We'll get most of the wall built. There'll guess who will come. I think a couple of things need to be said. First of all, I already said it. Trump is not perfect. So he often has done things that I think are harmful to himself. And saying that I think just politically is a mistake. But we also have to say without a doubt he has been the most pro -life president we ever had in this country. Because of him and standing up for Kavanaugh, Roe v. Wade was overturned. I want to remind people of that. I also want to remind people that he spoke at the March for Life. No other president had done that. And so right now, I guess I find everything with him, not everything, but a lot of stuff just funny. It's almost like he'll say anything Ron DeSantis says, he'll say the opposite. I know. You could be triggered and tripped into that. And it's his Achilles heel that whatever Trump, whatever DeSantis says, Trump will somehow try to spin it. Trump even said that Andrew Cuomo did a better job on COVID than Ron DeSantis. That is literally the most insane thing any American politician has said since Jefferson Davis said I want to secede from the union. It's up to that level of crazy. But Trump, I mean Trump does this stuff for effect. In other words, for political effect to drive people crazy. That's why I guess I find it at least partially entertaining that he'll go out on a limb and say something like that just to trigger DeSantis. The problem is this stuff isn't cute. There were thousands of people murdered in those nursing homes in New York. Abortion isn't cute. This is not something funny. This is not like letting Jared and Ivanka turn the White House into their own little party hut. This is really serious. And our only leverage over Trump is right now during the primaries. If he gets the nomination, he can do whatever he wants because he will be elected president unless they assassinate him, which I do not put past that. I do not put that past the deal. Oh, I know that there have been attempts that we haven't heard about, but obviously they would do anything to get rid of him. We have our leverage now, especially before the Iowa caucus. Trump needs to be told if you keep saying this weak, rhino, wimpy garbage about abortion, maybe we'll hold our noses and vote for you against Joe Biden because we don't want to be put in prison camps. But we're not going to go to the mattresses for you. We're not going to go to the wall for you. We're not going to be fanatical, devoted supporters. We will hold our nose and vote for you the way we held our noses and voted for George W. Bush. Do you want to be the next George W. Bush? Well, no, John, I think it's worse than that. I think what will happen, what will happen is many evangelicals, pro -life evangelicals simply won't vote, which I think is an unbelievable mistake because they feel it's principled not to vote for Trump because he said this about what DeSantis's view. On the other hand, let him think that and maybe it's true and let him act accordingly. It's like if we are so on the reservation, Eric, that they know they have our votes no matter what they do, the Republican Party will keep treating evangelicals and pro -lifers the way the Democratic Party treats blacks. That is, you have no choice where you're going to go, take whatever scraps we throw you. So no, I think it's good. Let him be a little afraid that we will go off the reservation. No, that's why I just said that. That's why I just said that. In other words, I actually believe that that's true because when you look at what happened in the last number of elections, there are many evangelicals who are so pious in the negative sense that they would say, I'm just going to sit home and I'm not going to vote because Trump had three wives and I'm going to let Hillary Clinton or Satan or Adolf Hitler take over America because I'm so pious that I won't pull the lever for somebody who doesn't agree with me on everything or who puts out mean tweets or says things I disagree with. That is effectively how we got Biden because we didn't have a serious situation that we're in. On the other hand, Mike Pence is saying that unless we give long range missiles to Ukraine so it can kill lots of Russians, we'll have to go to war with Russia because it will invade Poland. So in order to avoid war, we have to fight a war. It's exactly what George W. Bush said about Iraq, that we have to fight the terrorists over there so we don't have to fight them over here so they won't do 9 -11 again. Now we know now Iraq had nothing to do with 9 -11. It had no weapons of mass destruction. So he lied us into the Iraq war. In Vietnam, they told us we had to fight the Vietnam war so that the communists wouldn't take over Japan and then Hawaii. The whole domino theory is something that warmongers and the military contractors they work for, they whip it out every time they want to get us in a useless war. They say, well, remember Neville Chamberlain? Remember 1938? And I always say, remember August, 1914, when they blundered into World War I and destroyed all three of the main governments involved in it, all based on nothing, based on lies, based on garbage. Sometimes it's November, September, 1938. Sometimes it's August, 1914. And you're the idiot warmonger about to plunge the world into destruction because of your silly fantasies private about being a big man. Mike Pence is one of those warmongers and he's very dangerous right now. There's never enough time to talk to you, my friend. We'll get you back as soon as possible. Thank you, folks.

Yes, I would have had another 22 ,000 votes. Are you saying you needed those votes in order to win? Are you acknowledging you didn't win? I'm not acknowledging no. I say I won the election. When we ask people how they feel about getting this rematch, they said that they think that means politics in the U .S. is broken. Now from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Boy, we live in a broken world, don't we? The weekend was chock full of bad news. A Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy was apparently ambushed as he sat at a red light. Somebody assassinated him. They pulled up next to him and shot him in the head. A video was released of two kids in Las Vegas murdering a retired police chief, a guy on his bike out for his morning ride in Las Vegas. These two kids thought it would be funny to mow him over to kill him and they did. According to Charlie Kirk, one of the two perpetrators is right now free. They don't even have both of them behind bars. The two punks, the two cowards, the two monsters who murdered this guy in cold blood. And also, of course, we might as well get this out of the way. We got President Trump with an answer to Kristen Welker on NBC's Meet the Press and her debut as the new host, which gave a lot of ammunition to Trump haters who want to hurt him and try to wreck his chances of becoming the nominee in 2024. This is an interesting dilemma that Republicans have. Here's the dilemma. Pro -life is a centerpiece, is a foundation of the Republican Party fighting for the sanctity of those unborn babies, the sanctity of their lives, the sacredness of the innocent. That's a centerpiece, that's foundational for the Republican Party. And whether we like it or not, this particular debate that we're having in America is over abortion crushing us at the ballot box. And Donald Trump, I believe, was trying to address that with Kristen Welker on Meet the Press. Let's get it out of the way. I've been dreading this all weekend. Well, it wasn't all weekend. I mean, this first broke, I think, Saturday. They gave a little preview of his answer. I don't love his answer, but I also don't love the way Trump critics are pouncing on him, claiming he's not pro -life. I got into a big knockdown drag out, as I expected I would with my friend Mark Davis in Dallas, because Mark is now hell -bent on proclaiming that Donald Trump is not pro -life. And he's saying that because of this exchange with Kristen Welker yesterday on Meet the Press. So for the first time in 62 years, I'm not going to say I would or I wouldn't. I mean, DeSantis is willing to sign a five -week and six -week ban. Would you support that? I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake. But we'll come up with a number, but at the same time, Democrats won't be able to go out in six months, seven months, eight months and allow an abortion. Now, there are people like my friend Mark Davis who took that answer and that proclaimed Donald Trump is not pro -life, like it's important to proclaim or make some kind of declaration that he is not pro -life. And here's what Mark tweeted over the weekend. The heartbeat bill is, quote, a terrible thing and a terrible mistake, unquote. Mark said, I loved every day of his presidency. Thank God he beat Hillary. And if he's the nominee, I'll walk through fire to help him beat Joe Biden. But Trump is not pro -life. Now, as expected, Mark and I had a pretty solid disagreement only because I believe it's ever a ten the march for life. The guy who promised to get Roe v. Wade overturned because that was terrible federal. That was a terrible federal ruling and appointed Supreme Court justices who did just that to claim that Donald Trump is not pro -life is preposterous. It's absurd. It's virtue signaling. And perhaps it's just the opportunistic way you chalk up some points for Ron DeSantis, because clearly Team DeSantis is pouncing on Donald Trump over this remark. I believe two things can be true at the same time. You can be pro -life and you can acknowledge that this issue is killing us at the ballot box and we're losing elections. And here's what Mike Cernovich, who's a conservative influencer on social media, here's what he tweeted or posted on X. He said, if you want to be pro -life, no exceptions, good for you. Lose every election, have no political power, then see what life looks like in a Bolshevik hellhole. Will you feel good because you didn't compromise as your children starve? That's the alternative. And I really do appreciate his point. I am pro -life. I'm proud to tell you every day about Preborn. I want you to support an organization like Preborn. I want women to see ultrasounds and see what that baby inside their womb looks like, because the chances are that woman is going to choose life. I have fought and represented the life movement for many, many years, but I'm also realistic enough to know that if we lose election after election after election because too many women are turning against the GOP over additional abortion restrictions, we're never going to have any Republicans in office to prevent more carnage against the unborn, because we may never win another election. And that's the dilemma. I truly believe that Trump was answering the question on Meet the Press with that in mind, that the reason he thinks it's a terrible idea is he thinks it's costing us elections. Is he pro -life? Of course he is. Was it a clunky answer? Perhaps. Should you want to score points by declaring that Trump is now somehow some wild -eyed pro -choice Democrat? I don't think that's fair and I don't think that's reasonable, but I'm going to turn it over to the smartest audience in America. That's you. Here's the PhD weight loss and because you probably followed this controversy over the weekend. I want to get your take on it. I want to get your reaction. I heard from my pal, Joey Hudson. A lot of people in South Carolina were shocked at what Trump said, very disappointed in his answer. Do you feel that way or do you recognize he is trying to navigate the challenge of winning elections so that we can continue to have the kind of pro -life presidency that he delivered?

Is Biden's Age Becoming a Liability? Democrats Panic!
"The White House rips media for fixating on Biden's age. That's in the Hill. Trump is really old, too, is Frank Bruni in The New York Times. Wall Street Journalist is Biden too old to run again. And Wall Street Journal editorial, Democrats start to panic about Biden. Bret Baier is back. So, Bret, what do you think about that statement by the president in Alaska? Well, I just think that it's following that track that we've been seeing of speeches where something, something goes wrong in the speech. Something is exaggerated. He says something that's just not true. I mean, Hillary Clinton wrote and said that she flew over as New York senator and saw 9 -11 the next day. And those words, it looked like the gates of hell. You know, Senator Biden at the time was in D .C. He didn't go to 9 -11 ground zero till nine days later. So the White House is going to say he meant the nine days later trip. But when you're in Alaska and you're talking about recollections of 9 -11 and already the family's not at ground zero or one of the sites, maybe that's not the time to exaggerate. Yeah, I read the Wall Street Journal story today on they interviewed many, many people who were born exactly on the day that Joe Biden was born. And they spoke about what it's like to be 80. And some of them say, oh, it's fine. And some of them say, no, you really lose the step. And other people say you can go downhill in a hurry. I don't think this cannot be talked about, Bret, but it's also something that it is important to cushion how one discusses it. How are you handling it? Yeah, I don't think it's about the age. It's about, you know, what we're seeing about his ability to speak clearly, about his ability to even deliver teleprompter speeches. I think that the Vietnam news conference was an example of what people are seeing with their own eyes. You can say I can't keep up with him. And the White House can say he's got such energy. And then we can all see his lack of answers or I'm going to go to bed or they turn on the music and cut off the mic at the end of the news conference because they don't want them to say anything else. Those are things that people can see with their own eyes and hear with their own ears. So I don't think it's the number. I do think it's the capability. And it is clearly, clearly making Democrats very, very concerned.

"So maybe I'm lucky in that respect maybe everyone has that sort of potential with satin experiences, but yeah, I think that very much said that my success in 2020 was made possible. By what happened in 2016. So I'm grateful for that in the long run. Yeah, that makes sense. One to 2024. Yeah, so that's the big looming thing that's starting to heat up is it's now early 2023. People are already announcing their candidacy for the next presidential election and that's going to take place at the end of 2024 and astrologers are already looking forward to some major mundane events that, for example, that Nick and I talked about recently in the episode in November on Uranus and the Uranus returns in the birth chart of the United States and how we're building up to that where Uranus is going to return back to Gemini where it was in the United States history back during the American Civil War during the Civil War and during World War II so that somewhat how we're going to have a recurrence or a repetition of that transit here between what 2025 and 2032 or 2033 we've also got some major eclipses coming up that are going to cross America I think in 2025, right? Yeah, yeah. It wasn't 24? Maybe it is 2024 though. I can't remember. I thought it was 2025. I mean, I checked my pocket of February, but I am the pocket of fabrice.

"So the ten 45 theoretical chart gives 4° of Leo rising, it moves the Mars Pluto Saturn conjunction to the first house, first holstein house, the Scorpio Stella moves the fourth whole side house with the sun Venus mercury and the south node there. Jupiter's in the 5th. The moon interestingly has departed from Pisces and his ingress into Aries where, depending on the time it's either just barely perfected a train with Jupiter by minutes, it's at zero 39 areas and Jupiter is at zero 38 saj or because ten 45 would be slightly rounded. It could have actually still been applying to a train with Jupiter very closely with the moon in the 9th hole sign house. The degree of the mid heavens at 19 Ares in the 9th hole signed House Uranus is at 25 Gemini in the 11th, Neptune is at 11 Libra in the third and a lot of fortune is in is in Pisces and a lot of spirit is in Capricorn. Weird annoying thing about the zodiac releasing periods is that this chart still results in a loosing of the bond in 1992 when her and bill got into The White House, which is a lovely compilation or compilation complication complication where some of the things that made the new Gemini rising time at 6 45 compelling are slightly replicated in this chart, although not as impressively because it's not a peak period. In 1992 in the same way that it is in the Gemini rising chart and it would be a more effective as well with Leo rising because the boosting of the bond in 1992 would have happened to some office car. Oh no, no, I have that wrong. Let me see if I have it saved. But either way, like you said, it's not the period.

"2020, which as we know turned out to be nothing. But that was that was ultimate. I mean, I think, you know, in part I was, I was guilty of not following my own astrology because I knew I'd written Uranus USA. I knew all very well that Donald Trump's chart was very sort of quintessentially American with the sun Uranus conjunction up at the top of his chart there in an eclipse, and then I had done the work on Hillary and I knew very well that the big changes in our life coincided with Mars retrograde transits and there wasn't one happening. And yet I still went ahead and picked her partly I think because of just a bias, but partly because I was looking ahead to that Saturn Pluto conjunction 2020 and I really thought she would be the one handling that. So yeah, I mean, don't do it too hard on yourself. I mean, that was some of those observations are kind of independent of the birth time as well. I thought that was an interesting point as well. As we've said, most people in the world got this wrong. But I just got it way more wrong than the rest of you. Because I actually had, you know what I mean? You guys just didn't have the information you needed. And so, you know, it's understandable. I had everything and I still gave the wrong predictions. Although, yeah, I mean, looking even looking back at those previous events, I noticed that there was a recurrence of the nodes going through Pis and Virgo. And that was present at the 2016 election as well. So that's another one of those kind of signs that I guess, especially especially in light of the fact that we've often remarked on the importance of those eclipse events or she was in a Pisces perfection year in 2016. Just before the election, on her birthday, she went from an Aquarius to a Pisces. So there was like a Neptune south node conjunction happening in pices in that in that particular weekend, the election. Something we gotta talk about though, maybe we should address earlier is

"Her chart. Like with the whole Scorpio stallion, there's a tension there because Mars and Pluto and Saturn are overcoming those are squaring them through a superior square, but the Jupiter is sort of somewhat unencumbered by that. It's primary issue is just that it's contrary to the sect. So some of the excesses of Jupiter potentially come out a little bit more in that instance, but it's otherwise relatively well placed planet in his very horny spouse. Well, Jupiter. Being a bit of a bill is something. Let's not get into it too much. Sure, yeah. Director hate mail to I wanted to say about Hillary's Mars Saturn Pluto. Ironically, that's the culprit on my end that had me blow the election prediction. Because I knew whoever won, presuming it was Hillary who won, whoever was president would have to deal with the Saturn Pluto conjunction of early 2020 and Mars would join that as well. So I knew there was going to be a triple Mars Saturn Pluto. I remember saying this at the press conference thing. And so I thought, well, you know, the country is going to get into this, you know, probably ultimately forgettable ordeal, but the country is going to be in some kind of trouble in early 2020 and Hillary's chart, you know, having that Mars Saturn Pluto I just thought she was the one who would have that big recurrence trends and it would be dealing with whatever happened in

"And activity in terms of her career and overall life direction, if the Scorpio rising chart was correct. So that ended up being a large part of the basis of the prediction then of thinking that she would win if the Scorpio rising chart was correct, is that the technique showed the 2010s as being sort of the high point in her career and overall life direction. But then it was going to switch into a bad period in 2018 when it goes to Scorpio, which is angular from Mars and Saturn. And so I think I had sort of assumed from that that she would get one term in office, but wouldn't be reelected. The I was just going to say that the other reason why this look compelling is that if you look at the level two leucines of the bond, they also corresponded with fairly significant times of our life that made it seem no plausible that this sequence match to life. So for example, if you look at the one period, but we know it's not correct. We know it's not correct. It's just giving that to you. Yeah, yeah, no worries. Yeah, I was just saying this is kind of why we were able to be convinced by let go of it Watson. Yeah, no, I have. I let go of it in 2016. That was really when I let go. Yeah. So anyway, the Scorpio rising chart was the one chart that looked good for visit act releasing periods and just showing a peak period around the time of the 2016 election. But the Gemini rising chart when you pull that up let me move things around here. So the Gemini rising chart has a lot of fortune and capricorns, the peak periods should be the four cardinal signs, a lot of spirits and scorpios, so we start the career periods from there. Okay spirit so she starts out in a 15 year Scorpio period from 1947 to 1962. She goes into a 12 year Sagittarius period or a chapter of her life from 1962 until 1974 and in 1974 she reaches

"That asked Romney and he said I was born around sunrise or something like that, which is kind of vague, but it gives you a rough time period of when he was born, but then Francis also heard that, but from France as she submitted it as an exact birth time to ASTRO data bank instead of a rounded one, I thought the source for his time came from a letter that his father had given to an announcement, but his employees. Oh, it wasn't Romney, actually. I'm thinking of Kerry. Okay, well, it's gonna say it was tricky to evaluate Francis mcavoy because she had been known to give fairly reliable times that really straightforwardly. But then there were also a couple that were suspect. And so similarly with Mark penfield, no, there was not everything that he had done before we move on from that because that's really important point because that was one that you're personally involved in, which is Carrie because you asked John Kerry for his birth time. Yeah, you know, in the most normal thing that I ever did in what was probably the question was he thought was just this normal thing he'd ever heard. I asked him directly. No. I was in college, so I was maybe like 19 or something, but yeah, he did an event at my college, which is a Massachusetts and I went up to him afterwards and asked him what time he was born and he looked at me really, really strangely and everyone else was around me he was looking really strangely and he said it's around sunrise, I think. Which, you know, corresponded with previous quotes and another time scene had been asked and but yeah, as far as Francis mcavoy concerns one or two other people had also said that they had asked him or asked other people around him and that sunrise was correct, but then Francis submitted it to ASTRO data bank presumably also after asking him as an exact time, which was to the minute and it was about an hour or something on the other side of sunrise. So it was around sunrise, but what we realized she had done is she had taken a statement that I was born around sunrise and she'd rectified it to be an exact birth time and then submitted it to ASTRO data bank in that way. Yeah, so we approximate rather than exact, yeah. Yeah, so that was the first clue in this we discovered this at some point in the early to mid 2020 tens in the lead up to the 2016 election and I started realizing that there might be a potential problem sometimes with some of Francis's approaches even though she otherwise seemed like she had been a good data collector that sometimes she might have a

"Would have been a pretty big deal for them. Yeah, I don't know for sure, but that might also be like the period where Jennifer flowers, the stuff is going on, things like that, you know, prior to the actual affairs and things like that. Wait, oh, oh no. Oh no, it's just trying to think of what was going on in 1990 with the contents I know that the 1988 B and C was broke and making that speech with it was supposed to launch him into consideration of the presidency, but then he took too long with the speech, and so people thought he might not really be able to do it. I'm trying to think what else happened in 1990. I know there was some chatter in 1989 of Hillary herself running for governor of Arkansas, but then after doing some testing or doing some polling, then she decided against it. So I can't really remember anything specific about 1990, but given that it happened in horizon sign. But I don't know if there was anything else you remember from that. Yeah. Not specifically, but that, you know, now that we have the time I want to go to my Hillary biographies and comb it out. I think really, you know, why did I think it was Gemini over cancer? It might have just been sort of completely arbitrary. You know, like just a sense like, is it one or the other? I guess it's this one. I don't remember though. I have to think I had some kind of rationale at the time, but it's 50 years. Right. That's what's funny about all this is over the past week. We've had to go back and listen to the most podcast episodes from 2016 and it's just like making me remember so many details that I had forgotten about the whole saga and drama surrounding all of this for so many years and different twists and turns and the story that I had forgotten about. Exactly. Or whatever it was you did end up using that after rectifying it in 2008, 2009, you did end up using Gemini rising later in 2016. So you must have felt pretty good about using that chart, especially when other people like me and Patrick were using Scorpio rising based on what we thought was the practical evidence as well as what we thought was the more eminent chart and the one chart that we thought where it seemed like she had a shot with it. And that actually ended up being part of the moral of the story for me in retrospect, which is like one follow the evidence and the majority of the evidence when it comes to the documentation of birth times and what that seems to point to, which in that instance it had always been pointing or at least towards the end of the election cycle, it started pointing to the 8 p.m. time as the one that seemed to have better documentation and avoid

"The 90s and during different periods like that. And it looked much less likely that she would run the presidency according to zodiac releasing if the Gemini rising char was correct. And there was actually like a statement to that effect in, I think, episode 90, where I said, I was like, yeah, for me, the thing is if the 8 a.m. time is correct, then she has it, quote unquote, and then I continued and said, and then she wins, if the 8 p.m. time charts are correct and most of the other ones that were proposed, including two 18, it doesn't look as compelling. It looks more iffy. And we'll get into the zodiac releasing of that here in just a minute once we finish going through this. So you had one more, one more of these. Yes. Okay. So that's three. And then this is the fourth. Mars goes retrograde. Once again, cancer to Gemini, that this one in like the others is not pre retrograde, it's already retrograde. But this was, I remember this day really, really well, because actually like Biden was the one who looked like he might sort of take lead this is very early in the 2008 primaries. But out of the blue, this was the day that it was like, oh, this totally unknown. Black man just won the Iowa caucus, and he could actually, he's a real contender. He could take this. And from this day forward, like I can't state it enough, like no one really thought Obama had a shot at the presidency until this day. What do we look at for the audio listeners? This is January 3rd, 2008. Yeah, Mars retrograde in Gemini and it was the Iowa caucus and Obama won, which was suddenly kind of a heads up. Like everyone's kind of presumed it would be Hillary or maybe Biden. In 2008. And then out of the blue Obama sort of shot out like a rocket. So this was sort of the indicator that yeah, you know, not unlike 2016, Hillary was just presumed. To be, you know, the candidate. And then in comes Obama and that all changes. So yeah, it was just, you know, this was like her one really good shot. I mean, a better shot than 2016. And she was thwarted. So in this, this is January 3rd, 2008. When Obama wins the Iowa caucus and Mars is at 28 Gemini retrograde, so it'd be Mars retrograde basically in her rising sun. Yeah, so based on all of that up to

"It seems that the collective Victor E was able to send an application to the Cook County records office and was able to get the buff certificate through legal means and thankfully made it available to us. Right, and submitted that to Astra data bank just what a week ago or something like that. Do you know what day it was? It was about a week ago. Okay. Yeah. More or less. Or within the past week. So and this is something I remember, and if you listen to our I think recordings back from 2016, this is something you're aware of would eventually happen and that you're looking forward to. So that's why it's a big deal now because we've been waiting for 6 years at this point almost 7 years for the birth certificate to come out and to finally have all this settled and then it finally has happened as of this week and this huge thing that we've been talking about since like 2006, 2007, this huge mystery in the astrological community has finally been settled or revealed at least as much as it's probably going to be at this point, although hilariously there's still even some ambiguity now even once the birth certificate has been released. But let's take a look at the image. So that was submitted by Victor two Astra data bank. It doesn't show the entire burst of data just shows a snippet of it. But this is what it shows. So it says at the top date of birth, and then it's written out in the presumably like the doctor or the nurses handwriting, October 26th, 1947, born alive on 6 well, what looks like a 6 45 p.m. date signed October 28th, 1947, and then at the bottom, what does that say specimen May 16? 47, yeah. 47.

"Was really important because then all of a sudden it meant that part of the original evidence that we had for the 8 a.m. time suddenly vanished and then all that was left was now the evidence was pointing more towards what Hillary herself said, which was 8 p.m., but then when we cast that chart for 8 p.m. that day, it moved the ascendant to exactly 8 p.m.. It was at 29 49 Gemini, so what became annoying about that was that especially for those of us that use whole sign houses if she was born just like a minute later or I think a few seconds into 8 p.m. 47 seconds 47 seconds. 47. The ascendant would switch to cancer and then all of the signs of the house placements would be different. Let me actually animate the chart in order to show what that looks like. So here's 29 at exactly 8 p.m. and then you move it forward a minute and the charge switches to cancer rising and with wholesale houses all the house placements shift so this was annoying because then it meant even with the evidence we would have like two different potential charts to work with and it could be either of those basically because 8 to 8 p.m. is obviously like a rounded time at the top of the hour and so it could really go either way. So. There's two directions we can go one explaining the other charts and maybe we should and then after that we're going to explain why you actually liked and actually felt like you could validate the Gemini rising chart pretty early on I think right Nick yeah yeah by 2009 I made a YouTube video about how I had weighed in on the Gemini ascendant and why I did so. Okay, so and then the last thing is that there was also this other straight entry on Astra data bank about Hillary supposedly talking to there was an astrologer who said that their chiropractor talked to Hillary and that Hillary said that she had Leo rising or something to that effect, right? Patrick? Right. I think it was an astrologer all in wise. They said they had a friend who was a chiropractor for Hillary and apparently in the session. They were talking about astrology and Hillary mentioned that she was aliyah rising, which would correspond with a time that is past ten, 27 p.m., basically. So that would be a time which is much later

"Do you remember when the Hillary Clinton campaign put out a bogus Russia collusion hoax? Planted it in the deep state and which is to say with the police agencies of government who promptly leaked it to the media and then of course what is Hillary Clinton do she holds up those media reports and go see? There's a an FBI investigation into Trump's ties with Putin again feeding the idea that he's a Russian agent. So what makes that whole operation so deceptive is that she planted the story and then pretended like there was an independent investigation having nothing to do with her and she was merely referring to it. This all came to my mind because emails obtained by the GOP leadership in the house show that Anthony Fauci Doctor Fauci does did exactly the same thing. Now in April 1720 20, here a spouse talking. There was a study recently, he says, where a group of highly qualified evolutionary virologists looked at the sequences in bats as they evolve in the mutations that it took to get to the point where it is now is totally consistent with the jump of a species from an animal to a human, then he goes on to say, so the paper will be available. I don't have the autos right now, but we can make it available to you. He's talking about the fact that there's a paper that disputes the lab leak theory of the origins of COVID and suggests a animal to human or a natural origin. But notice Fauci's language he basically goes is paper out there. I don't really know who wrote it. But you know what, I can get it and give it to you guys, turns out that this paper Fauci knows exactly who wrote it. Why? Because he put him up to it.

I kind of going back to where we started a little bit of macro. What kind of environment are you guys getting ready for that? I know we talked a little bit about what you're seeing from your customers. But it is kind of a tricky time and we see inflation continuing to be persistent, supply chains have gotten better, but we still hear about component problems in various industries worried about a global economic slowdown. How would you best describe kind of our environment? Yeah, you know, I think it's an environment with a lot of opportunity, like we were talking about at the beginning. Cloud and technology, everything from AI technology is to business process automation to the elasticity of cloud, you know, if you don't want to run a business anymore, scale down the consumption of the IT, you didn't invest in it on your promises. You can scale it down in the cloud. As well as continuing also on premises to adopt faster more efficient technologies, all these things are key parts of addressing where enterprises need to be thinking these days. And I think we're just continuing to invest in those core technologies that are going to help folks go through this period that we have coming up successfully. I'll also comment you mentioned supply chain. The topic of risk in the supply chain also from a cybersecurity perspective is one that definitely came up in this index that we just released.

Oh really and i think this is an important one It just surfaced a while ago. They're happy couple. Apparently they spent some time in. Somebody's living room was held the sally. That's right. that's right are. If you're listening to the audio only version you'll recall when the biden's went to the corners back in georgia at any similar to that similar similar similar to putin looks like a giant in his buddy looks very rustling. So you guys are in favor of vladimir putin. no no. we're not funny. It's a funny picture. And it grieves us to have the american president Being crushed by the russian president. But that's what happened. That's just what happened. Feels bush them all around all of them. Did i mean francis mccrone pushed him around so it wasn't just putin it was everybody. The guy is you know he's he's cognitively declined he's aged. He's not sharp. And i don't know that there was ever a time with joe biden would have made a great world leader and stuck up for american had to negotiate american issues and enforce our policy on others. That's just not joe biden and certainly not now win. That was evident in the first eight times. He ran for president and lost I realized that this particular round he received more votes than any other president. history it's Still shouldn't have happened now. Yesterday we heard somebody mentioned that Putin had had called out biden's cognitive decline. And we said i miss that is this when nbc asked putin. Do you remember your last meeting with biden and putin said well. I don't recall her exact conversation. But i'm sure he has a good memory. Is that the slam. And maybe that's the that's the kind of a slam a could be or it might not be. It could go either way. Yeah it was in big you up here. we're being i that Hillary was on morning. A stupid show is with morning. Post them yeah and of course that their narrative is so wonderful to have joe biden all could redirecting the narrative into the toilet the russia because it was so torn down with donald trump. Was it in. What way what do you mean. It was torn down with donald trump. Bs destroyed that relationship right. According to hillary and good to have her back in back into the into the limelight and of course she's pushing the narrative that You know putin helped elect trump such garbage you okay. It was such an outrageous conspiracy theory to say that there were some shenanigans going on with the twenty twenty presidential election. But you can continue to harp. On the fact that russia's stole the election for donald trump twenty sixteen to hillary shut up made it his mission to deny her the president. You know his long history with foreign relations is eight years as vice president seeing what worked. What didn't work Watching the disaster of the trump presidency in basically giving a green light to putin to do whatever he wanted. What electric of course positive results. You'll see a month. Oh okay name. One thing that putin did that was outrageous. During the the trump administration deny hillary clinton the presidency was. We'll get to the green light. Did putin received that he ran with and just took off and kept hitting green light and just kept going. Don't know what i don't know Because some of the things that i think it was just what trump was saying right because they're still sanctions yes. He biden removed and the pipeline. Yes right which is so. There's two things that stood in the way of that biden removed the restrictions on that pipeline so by tries to talk tough yet gives him all kinds of love yes. They gave them all kinds of love verbally. Or at least that's what you would you believe that. He did the way he talked putin but really sanctions and the pipeline were no and whose family has made money in russia right. I mean that's going to be biden. That's that's that's gonna be hunters dealings. Between ukraine russia china all these foreign countries which family has the ties. That's going to be the biden clan. Well no keith. Because donald trump plant at one point to build a hotel in moscow. Did he planned. It no never happened but he was planning and guys. That plan was enough to i. Guess change the course of history. Trump may have tweeted. I don't know this he he. He may have tweeted. Putin's good guy and so we can't have that. I don't think did i don't i don't i don't think he ever did either. I'm just all right. Did she have more or was that about the gist of it for that one. Then there's a second clip. And i don't know if it's ready where she talks about how Putin worked actively to deny her presidency. Do we have perhaps. Perhaps perhaps we'd okay so so putin worked hard to deny her. The president and that's based on what evidence for what okay i i would think there would be nobody. Putin would rather have an office. Hillary clinton nobody because she was so incompetent and so worthless when she was secretary of state. Anybody remember this moment well for me yesterday when.

Also match lap of the American Conservative Union and CPAC joins us a little later in this program, But right now we're joined by the founder and publisher of just the News over just the news dot com investigative reporter. John Solomon. John. Thanks for joining us, sir. Great to be with you, Larry. Well, you've had a lot of paperwork to go through here. As in the final days of the Trump administration, many documents were declassified with regard to Ah, Operation Crossfire Hurricane so I know you've been hit. You still have plenty to go through, by the way, but, um, talk to me about some of the larger stories that you've been able to uncover here. Yeah, I think the most important is the motivation for why the Russia collusion narrative was created. We now know from two separate declassified documents, one from the CIA. Showing that the CIA had intercepted information in the summer of 2016 indicating that Hillary Clinton was inventing the Russia collusion there. Give to quote unquote vilified Donald Trump ch words, not mine. Coming up with this story that he was colluding with Russia because she was worried about the effect of the email scandal on her presidential aspirations. And then we learned from a document declassified last week that I wrote about That, Christopher Steele said the same thing. The reason I leaked the false story about Russian well, he didn't come for us. But the Russian collusion narrative is because I was worried that Hillary Clinton's Aspirations were being hurt by the email scandal. James Comey had reopened the case. Hillary was hurting from it, so I want to change the subject, and he sent another thing That was interesting. I wanted to help my home country of Great Britain because I thought Donald Trump was bad. My home country. What a remarkable at admission by a foreigner that he was trying to interfere in our election because it might help his own country or Hillary Clinton. So the motive why was invented is so important now it was a political dirty trick. In the very beginning. Yep, and he was trying to help his own country. It's a foreigner trying to help another country and let's be clear He was getting paid through, You know, Third party you know, passed through, but the money he was receiving was Clinton campaign money? There's there's no doubt about that. That was his boss. In fact, he tells you after I had two bosses, the FBI because I was an informer and Hillary Clinton and I chose Hillary Clinton. Stephen, help. Stefan Helper met with Carter Page in October of 2016. This is a month before the election, Carter Page. His name was out there. Crossfire Hurricane was going on seven Helper, of course, was an FBI. Well, are we allowed to calm a spy? Was he spying? I think we were coming in for me, but he was fine. He was engaged in the artist by he was trained on how to wear wires. And how do you know Sarah kisses you record people, and he was giving tasking orders. One of things I'm gonna put out the next couple days are all the instructions of how the FBI handled him, including. Here's how you can pretend you're interested in joining the Trump campaign is worker Don't take a job, but make him think that you're interested so you can spy on these people, and he spied on a lot more than just George Papadopoulos and Carter Page. We got to put that out there in a few days. Can't wait to see that. But the Carter page part is pretty interesting because when the story started blowing up on glee were learning so much more about what the FBI did here and the Russian dossier and the origins of the dossier. They all used Carter Page and George Papadopoulos as a fig leaf. Well, we were justified in doing this because Carter Page Well, you've reported here about specifically what the FBI knew about Carter Page and what he said to this informant, Stefan Halper. Yeah, it's John dropping. They had two giant red flags before they ever since the fight's over to the court for approval on October 21st 2016 being the FBI first, the CIA told them Hey, Carter Page is our guy. He worked as it controlled operative for us from 2008 to 2013 very helpful and trusted on Russia. That should have been told to the court probably should have killed the case right there. But then they decide to run an informant up against a common spy tactic. That stuff on helper comes in, and he poses as an academic interested in Carter Page is working. He's pumping him on the four things. Out of the main allegations in the Steele dossier about Carter Page, he met with two Russian sanctions officials. He changed the Republican National Committee platform. He did this. He did that. And Stefan Halper Uh, that you have. Carter Page doesn't know this stuff and helpers are FBI informant, So he's talking candidly and unwittingly, and he says, I didn't meet with those two guys. They don't even know them. I didn't. I stayed an arm's length away from the platform. I didn't touch that because I had been the Russian. I didn't want people to trust. You know, distrust my involvement. He knocks down in the most strongest possible way. All for allegations and what's interesting the document to that control stuff on how percent if Carter Page You know, not be thing down. If you provided proof that he was involved in collusion, we should move on. We should go look at something else. They didn't do that. They hid these extra exclamations of innocents. And they continue to investigate him. They proceeded with a FISA, which we now know was remarkably false. The FBI knew when they submitted that document. What they were claiming to the court was false. And they were they obliged to inform the court when they were requesting this, this very powerful, wide reaching FISA warrant when they applied for that were they obliged to give them this exculpatory information yet, listen, we We sent it a informant. He had a wire on and this is what Carter Page said Because fights accorded the unit party court me only the government gets to talk to the court and the accused. Don't get any representation. They had an obligation under the court rules under the law that all exculpatory information be turned over and I interviewed last night. Kevin Brock, former assistant director of intelligence, one of the most respected FBI men in the last 25 years. And he created the modern day rules for this sort of work, particularly handling informants. He looked at these documents outside. He said, three things one If I were running the shop, I would've closed the investigation down right after this in, too if I didn't I had a moral and legal obligation to tell the court 100% all of this exculpatory information.
