Voter Suppression, the Real 'Big Lie'

"So back to the political science professor from university of Georgia Charles S bulloch the third. He said this regarding Biden's assertion about them cutting ours. You can criticize the bill for many things. But I don't think you can criticize it for reducing the hours you can vote. Fact checker said the law did make some changes to early voting. But said experts say the net effect of the new early voting rules was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not to limit them. So it's just, once again, not true. But boy, do they believe that these dastardly voting laws pushed by these racist people are designed to suppress the vote, even though as ami Horowitz found out, we're going to east Harlem. People had absolutely no problem getting voter ID.

Everybody's Wearing a Mask, but Nobody Knows Why

"I'm a horror which did such a video in Manhattan, asking people who were best. Why do you wear your masks? You want to do me a favor, Sean, pull up that video of ambi Horowitz. It's a few months ago. In Manhattan asking people why they're wearing masks. And the answer is that they received. I'll have more on this in a moment because a truly courageous professor. Why do you wear a mask outside? Oh, here we are. I'm not sure what. Good news for you. You don't wear a mask anywhere outside. Okay. There you go. All right, how do you feel? The same. I'm on me Horowitz, and some people are still wearing their masks outside who are fully vaccinated, even though the science says they don't have to. Let's find out why. Why are we mascots? It feels weird not to. I just like it. I got used to it. I don't mind wearing it. I guess I'm just used to it, I guess. I just have it. I was on. You forgot, are you vaccinated? Why wear your mask outside? What's your thought process? It's literally crickets. No comment. I just feel like I passed away. I don't know why. I just wanna wear it. Yeah, I guess like my Friends wear them, so I'm like, if I'm, I might as well do this too. I feel like I won't take off my mask until everybody does. Oh yeah. We had them pressure against role modeling, right? I mean, there's a lot of anxieties, we're taking the mask off, you know, for the first time. So it's been so long. Yeah, it's like a social anxiety at this point. It's just, you know, mental health. Social anxiety. So it's virtually impossible to get coronavirus outside while you're vaccinated. Okay. Does that change your thought process at all? Not really. I'm just gonna keep wearing it. I personally still wouldn't want to take the risk anyway. I don't trust anyone else. I'm just doing it for mine. Even if the science said it was like basically impossible, it still doesn't matter. Yeah.

One Thing Could Have Prevented Nearly ALL COVID Deaths

"So if I were to ask you, what are the most important numbers in your life? Things that you can measure objectively. You might say your credit score. You might say your net worth might say how much money you have in your bank account. You might say your stock portfolio. If I were to ask you what numbers are ones that you track and that you try to improve, there would be a whole variety of numbers that you would offer. But what if I told you that a new study has come out that is getting no coverage from the activist press, of a number that very well might be able to predict your ability to handle and survive a case of the Fauci virus? No, I'm not talking about your credit score. I'm not even talking about your vaccination status. I'm talking about your vitamin D levels. A new shocking article by my friend and just a brilliant, brilliant thinker, Daniel Horowitz. Studies show an aggressive vitamin D campaign could have prevented nearly all COVID deaths. Now, I was a little skeptical before I read this. I was skeptical, because I said, boy, you're trying to tell me that an aggressive vitamin D campaign could have prevented all COVID deaths. I'm going to read this article almost verbatim and go through it. But before I do, I've heard this anecdotally from ER doctors from nurses in the emergency room I say, what is the one thing that every single person who dies from the Fauci virus have in common? They say, oh, they're vitamin D deficient. They say it without even any hesitation. I was recently getting a vitamin C infusion. I try to do that every so often just to try to keep with good health and I'm a big believer in IV treatment and I think that you guys should check it out as well. And the people who administered the IVs for this particular clinic, they also work in the emergency room. And I asked them, I say, is it standard protocol in the emergency room? In Arizona to administer a vitamin D booster shot as soon as someone who is COVID positive comes in they say, no, we don't even have vitamin D at the hospital. Now I've heard it some hospitals they are doing this, but at least in banner and some of these other places in Phoenix, Arizona. They are not doing this, which is

The Origin of Christopher Steele's Lies Comes From Clinton Campaign

"Took years two more years on top of that for the Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz to expose that mister Steele had relied in a Russian source who said he never expected mister Steele to present his info as facts since most of it was hearsay Now derms indictment says that this source this guy danchenko obtained material from a longtime democratic operative who was active in the 2016 Clinton campaign In other words the Clinton campaign passed it off to this Russian guy the Russian guy passed it off to Christopher Steele and then Christopher Steele put it in the dossier and then the FBI used that information to then go after Carter page and other people within the Trump campaign And tell everybody that Trump was a Russian puppet A Russian steward you see That's the Democrats ran on And they knew it the whole time They knew what they lied They lied to everybody about this Hillary Clinton's campaign lied And there were so many people in the government that were more than willing to go along with this You know they were just happy to go along with this They didn't even stop Trump No matter

Is This the End of Private Property as We Know It?

"For months, we have been warning about how mandatory vaccines and vaccine mandates are going to result in people either losing their jobs, their careers, their livelihood, their private property. And so it is now at a place where state and local governments in partnership with the federal government are able to seize private property and careers from citizens without redress without any sort of reimbursement. On its face, it is wildly and transparently unconstitutional. But a step further, we are now at a place where the vaccine has more questions surrounding it than ever before, and we have a new podcast out on that topic in particular with Daniel Horowitz, where he goes into great detail about the most vaccinated countries on the planet or having the highest rates of the Fauci virus that they have seen. And it's really that question is whether or not the vaccine is helping or hurting, but still, we are now seeing private businesses being closed because they will not themselves enforce the vaccine mandate. This is the end of private property as we know it. Where you have government agencies and government entities that are now saying we are going to shut down your business if you do not enforce the vaccine the way we want you to enforce the vaccine. We have people losing careers in multi-million dollar jobs because they refuse to take the vaccine that does not 100% prevent you from getting the virus. Breakthrough cases people with the vaccine who are vaccinated are dying, and yet they say we still need to destroy your life even if you have natural immunity, even if you have the

How Do We Process the Alternate Reality That Exists in Our World?

"Yet conservatives and Republicans are still pushing the vaccine. Despite all the evidence around them, they say it's a pandemic of the unvaccinated. And I want to close on this note, Daniel, I want to be respectful of your time. How do you personally process how we have people living in absolutely different universes as if there's a different existence occurring? It's maddening for me quite honestly and I just decide just to keep telling the truth and keep moving forward. But when I see Republicans that are coming up this year, I know the vaccine is the greatest thing ever. It's actually it's preventing all the harm and suffering. Meanwhile, we look at the United Kingdom, 223 COVID deaths today, highest daily number of deaths since March 79% of the population 12 and older is fully vaccinated. How do we process this alternate reality? Within our own within our own world. And by the way, Charlie, it's interesting, England, as I said, same delta, as it was the first delta wave in May, now is very problematic. That's after the 5 6 month Pfizer leakage benchmark just so you know, so that's actually a very good example of what I'm talking about. Now they are getting a problem. They are, by the way, luckier than the American south because they got the benefits of the transmissibility of delta earlier on the cheap. So they do have more built up immunity. They're not going to have as many deaths as we did, but they are having problems. How do I square this? Look, you read the Johns Hopkins papers over the last decade. And now I'm getting into this. Peter bragan has an amazing book on this that traces the timeline. And they've been working on this forever. And at the end of the book, he literally is a timeline. And I'm shocked, like it is shocking the stuff. It's creepy. The stuff they talk about, they talk about PR campaigns. It's a scope. So you either get it or you're a victim of it. It's not

The Regime Being Run By Pharmaceutical Companies With Daniel Horowitz

"Daniel, and one of your pieces of my memory serves me well, I'm going to dig it up. You allude to the fact that this really is a regime that is being run by pharmaceutical companies. That this is about the small group of pharmaceutical companies that are calling the shots. Is it that sinister? Is it that diabolical Daniel or is there another explanation to this? I mean, I think it's broader than that, but certainly one of the lead ships in that armada of the system when you talk about the system, the cabal, the globalists, it's the pharmaceuticals. And I love how you call it the Fauci virus. China virus is really off message. The likely knew about it and maybe they had some involvement. This ain't the Chinese. They used Wuhan because it was offshore. This was done by UNC UNC Chapel Hill berwick, Jurassic, Fauci, and all the pharmaceuticals that were in it. By the way, fun fact, UNC Chapel Hill, which is the ground zero for the getting function of research for coronaviruses. You know that they're the ones who had Remdesivir. Gilead, somehow got ahold of it. Look it up. UNC Remdesivir. How is it that the only thing that was ever approved, which as I wrote yesterday have an article on this at the blaze NIH's own website says it causes liver toxicity and renal failure and we're seeing that with Sony patients, which is why a lot of people come in moderate moderate COVID, they should get over just like they go into the hospital with pneumonia every year. COPD, we have this treatable and they die. And it is the Remdesivir. It's one vicious cycle. So they'll look at Ivermectin C we can't use that and they're like, okay, let's say we're wrong and it's a sugar pill. But it is literally safer than Tylenol, won the Nobel Prize. Every piece of literature says is well tolerated. No one's ever had a problem. Why not try

Daniel Horowitz, Host of the Conservative Review Podcast, on Ivermectin Use in India

"Show with us today is a friend of mine and I do not say this lightly is one of the smartest people on the planet and he's a gift. He's a gift to our country. He's a gift from God and he is wise, he is relentless, sometimes he's contrarian and he's brave and going all the way back at the beginning of the pandemic, he's always just decided to go where the numbers were the numbers lead him and quite honestly also on crime. He said some of the best articles on what's happened with crime in America, but that's not what we're here to talk about. It's Daniel Horowitz, the name of his podcast is called conservative, review, and he's in very high demand now. He's a treasure when he talks. I just stop. I drop what I'm doing, I say, he makes sense. He knows his stuff, and we have gone into great detail on two of his articles in particular that I want to talk about, but first, Daniel, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Great to be with you and thank you for your con comments. Look, I never thought that during a time of an open border, the most ubiquitous crime wave we've ever experienced and inflation like Venezuela, strain supply lines, those wouldn't even be the problems. Yes. We literally be fighting for our bodies our lives our ability to live and that's certainly what's been keeping me busy, but glad to join you today. Well, it's just terrific. And so we're going to go into two of your articles in particular and we'll see where it leads us. The first I want to talk about your piece on a province in India from Uttar Pradesh I might be mispronouncing it and how they used Ivermectin. What do the numbers tell you when you did your research? Sure. So, you know, one thing is very clear, whatever you do or don't do. Pharmaceutical intervention, NPI non pharmaceutical intervention. I think the most consistent thing the last 18 months is it comes at saturates an area for 68 weeks and it leaves and then kind of comes back. So, you know, it's hard to draw conclusions because we have to understand natural cycles are the most important thing here. Now to be clear, the virus is not natural. It was created and contrived. But once it's in circulation, that's what it seems to do. However, when you go to this province in India and actually several others that also use Ivermectin, but this one is the most profound because they institutionalized it most broadly throughout the population, is that their curved dropped the quickest and the earliest and then it flatlined. So if you look at America, if you look at anywhere in Europe, even when it's low and out of season, there's a certain floor. There's a certain floor that it's kind of always circulating. There it is literally

'We Are Now Worse Off Than Before the Experimental Shots'

"Daniel Horowitz for the blaze dot com says the data is in. And we are now worse off than before the experimental shots. Now this is a thought crime. In October of 2018, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health published a report that if one did not know better, Mike make readers think the authors were involved in gain of function research that likely created the Fauci virus. The report was titled quote technologies to address global catastrophic biological risks. Risks. It offers novel social control and mRNA vaccination ideas to deal with emerging pandemics. Whether naturally emerging or reemerging deliberately created a released or laboratory engineered and escaped, that could lead to sudden extraordinary widespread disaster beyond the collective capability of national international organizations and the private sector control. One of the many bone chilling sections in the publication Daniel Horowitz writes, provides a blueprint for quote self spreading vaccines. Describe his vaccines genetically engineered to move through populations in the same way as communicable diseases. But rather than causing disease, they confer protection. After noting that such an idea would violate the rules of informed consent and possibly spread allergic reaction, they add this shocking prediction about the challenge of such technology Daniel horwitz writes, finally, there is not an insignificant risk of the vaccine virus, reverting to a wild type virulence. As has sometimes occurred with the oral polio vaccine, which is not intended to be fully virulent or transmissible. But which has reverted to become both neuro virulent and transmissible in rare instances. This is both a medical risk and public perception risk, and the possibility of vaccine induced disease would be a major concern to the public. Daniel horwitz continues by saying, whether this vaccine actually sheds the spike protein onto other people, is still not yet proven. Although Pfizer seems to indicate it can spread through skin to skin contact rather than inhalation. But the principle of mass vaccination with a faulty vaccine making a virus both more transmissible is something that is hard to deny at this

How Thirsty Was the FBI for Michael Sussman's False Trump-Russia Claims?

"Just to kind of sum up where we are now. This break in the SPI geh case on Friday was important because it shows Hillary Clinton working with the FBI and a group of attorneys to fake these connections between Trump and Russia. And it shows an FBI more than willing to take the information in and eager and looking for an excuse to get in front of a judge and say it was real and the problem is, they kept flooding the zone. Hillary Clinton, with all of these sources say Trump's colluding with Russia whatever, and they kept telling the FBI they were working with the DNC and Hillary And it created a problem for the FBI because they couldn't tell a judge that So they needed a clean source. They needed a white knight to come in there. Someone clean as the driven snow with a clean C B. Oh, no, no. These people are just in here to tell us about Trump. They have no ulterior motives whatsoever. How do we know that? Because we know On September 19th of 2016 this white knight showed up. According to the allegations, the FBI and the indictment on Friday Michael Sussman, who is a lawyer working with Mrs Clinton, this is why I'm telling you, it's a bigger deal than you think. This guy is connected to everyone. There's no way John Door, um, locked him up for nothing. So he comes into the FBI office. And he says, I have information about Trump colluding with Russia. And according to the allegation, he says, Oh, I'm not working with anybody. I'm not here on behalf of any client. I'm just here giving you potential information about a criminal conspiracy. And the FBI is like yes, finally. Finally The FBI is like this is just great. We gotta sources clean. We can put his information down in a fight application. We can spy on Trump and we won't have to lie and tell a judge, you know, uh, cover up for Hillary Clinton or anything like that. So, it says. In the end I and the FBI's press release that suspects showed up September 19th 2016. Why is this suspicious? Because you learn later on If you watch my show today, the podcast you learn right now on the radio show. If you read the Inspector General Michael Horowitz report who looked at this entire story. There's a really interesting nugget in there again. Hat tip. Our friend full Nelson on social media is all over this stuff. Here it is. Remember, I want you to pay attention to something right here. The date The lawyer walks in. The FBI office is September 1920 16, where he meets with the FBI. And this is their clean source. Finally. They've been hearing all summer about Trump and the Russians and all the sources are dirty. They're telling people that working for Hillary, this is the one guy who said according to the indictment. No, no, I'm not working for anyone. They felt like they had it. How do I know the FBI is in on this? What I think. Let me read to you a piece of this footnote here. From the Horowitz report. The only express direction. We found that Andrew McCabe, who was the deputy director at the time gave regarding the use of a confidential human source concerned. A former confidential human source who contacted an FBI agent FBI Field office in late July. 2016 to report information from a colleague runs an investigative firm hired by two entities, the DNC as well as another individual to explore Donald Trump's long standing ties to Russian entities. So in of this part, one of the footnote, McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI knows that people are piling into FBI offices as early as July of 2016 who are working for Hillary and the DNC. Got it. Okay. Moving on. Good footnote goes on. The former confidential human source also gave the FBI agent a list of individuals and entities who surfaced in the firm's examination of Trump, which the former CHS described as mostly public source material. In mid September. 2016 Andrew McCabe told senior Special Agent one to instruct the FBI agent from the field office not to have any further contact with the former confidential human source and not to accept any information regarding the crossfire.

"What are the risks to this. Kind of internal research continuing. What would stop it. No i mean now that they're getting scrutinized for not acting on what they're finding is. Yeah well that's a. That is a deeply depressing thought. That's me the idea that journalism can be permanent. Sort of check on the company is not possible right in terms of providing information. and so. I think there's a legitimate question. As to whether this attention does disincentivize the company to do the sort of research to understand itself that you know. I think everyone wants them to do. But at the same time there has to be some other solution to understanding what is happening inside a company that has such a transformative lee powerful product. So you're not seeing like a a map forward to addressing it now. I think i think one of the interesting things is that very clearly looking at the research. People do have solutions internally that they're proposing and in fact some of them they've even tested and found to be somewhat effective but they do tend to work against the company's interests and that's i think a hard sell inside a for profit business so if they're not addressing thing satisfactorily. I gotta ask. What's the point of doing the research. I think some of it is just truly absolutely necessary to not be blindsided. I mean we're talking about a company that has repeatedly declared a break glass measures in recent months. That's their words for sort of emergency measures to slow the platform. If they don't study this stuff they have big problems on their hands. And i think we can talk about how we got to january six. But there's no question that viral misinformation about elections is a problem. I don't think just ignoring it. Completely sticking their head in the sand is an option. Well okay so tell me how this reporting started like why. Focus on facebook. Aside from being my be facebook touches pretty much everything. I used to cover politics and i realized that politics basically had turned into kind of tech beat already and i think that this sort of the range of stories. We've got this week which deal with powerful political actors overseas humanitarian crises. The mental health of teenagers and the sort of ability to sort of literally flip a switch and change the tenor of political discourse around the world. I mean it. Just sort of illustrates the range and power of this platform. And how did you. I mean. I can't tell you that i mean just spell the name. Yeah so so. It's not a coincidence that there are a lot of people who facebook has asked to work on deeply serious sometimes deadly serious societal issues that end up talking to folks like me as some of them have noted on twitter in recent days Sort of former employees. They end up talking because they aren't able to proceed with their work inside the company. What role do you think. The oversight board plays here. That is very much to be determined. The oversight board has to powers one of them is to issue binding rules on specific facebook posts. That are generally months-old right. So the trump Removal from the platform was something that they kind of have binding authority over the other option or the other power. They've got is the ability to ask. Facebook questions and facebook is required to respond to them and to give them information onto their deal with facebook as long as the questions irrelevant and i think one of the things are reporting showed is that facebook at the very least deeply misled its own oversight board an entity that they created literally last year and put one hundred and thirty million dollars behind to supposedly provide accountability and they in the words of a law professor who studied them closely. They lied to it so under those circumstances is kind of a real question about what they're going to what the oversight board is going to do in response to this They have issued sort of an expression of concern. And you know there are obviously. There are other ways that they could threaten facebook in terms of their cooperation with the company and things of that nature. I mean facebook has invested a lot into this program. But it's sort of unclear what you do if sort of the big picture power you've got isn't one that facebook's gonna respect. Jeff horowitz is a reporter for the wall street journal and now for some related links. We've got links to the ongoing coverage jeff n. team are doing at the wall street journal. They are working round. The clock to publish the facebook vials. Check it out. Facebook already takes aggressive action against disinformation campaigns spread by fake accounts and waged by say russia. Now facebook tells reuters. It's using the same techniques against coordinated campaigns from real accounts for example the lead up to the january sixth attack on the us capitol building oversight is done not by content moderators. But rather by facebook security experts it's unclear yet as to how this will affect public debate.

The Blaze's Daniel Horowitz Suggests Kids Are Hospitalized for RSV, Not COVID

"Dan Horowitz has an incredible piece up at the blaze. You need to read my newsletter today, please reading or just go to the place and look it up yourself. Either way is fine with me. Get to this in a minute after this cut around the Santas, But you know this whole crisis now the crime using air quotes the media is hoisted upon our backs. Kids are being hospitalized everywhere. Covid again. We're all gonna die. Basque, your kids close to schools. Close the piss to shut everything down. Get the Infinity stones. It's the only way out. You are gonna die high that said. That's Joe Biden right there. That's that's that's just documented audio. Of course, that's Reverend Cain from Poltergeist, but no different. They're both They don't even look alike. Why the hysteria campaign? Why is this fairy tale that kids are being hospice? Because because of coronavirus, Why is that only happening here? Why around the world are blue checkmark liberals on Twitter like, gosh, it's just so weird. We have this explosion of kids being hospitalized because of coronavirus here, maybe because they're not being hospitalized because of coronavirus. Maybe they're being hospitalized because you're stupid Lockdown idea wreck their immune systems because they weren't exposed to any kind of viral load or pathogen load that they would by living in a normal universe, whether around other kids playing with other kids, you know, touching with wrestling with other kids, whatever kids do wipe in their faces rolling around in san where they're exposed. The pathogens that stimulate the immune system, which teaches their immune system to fight off viruses. So you thought it would be a brilliant idea to keep them locked up in the house. Brilliant for kids press liberal idea brilliant, which usually means dumb. Therefore their immune systems are not being stimulated. They're not developing socially. They're not playing with their friends, their kids learning how to read non verbal cues are learning how to listen to other kids. Speech patterns are not learning any of that. And then when they get out because the economy sooner or later has to open up, we're all gonna die from starvation. We find out that when kids go out and play then afterwards because your immune systems haven't been stimulated. That they're contracting all kinds of respiratory viruses that many, many of them would have developed. Some ability to fight off had their immune systems been stimulated.

The granddaddy of them all airbnb. We estimated around three and a half billion based on eighty five billion dollar market cap. They have ipo in the last six months.

"Wrote down is that the biggest case is that the firm is actually unrecognizable in ten years that they're sort of the startup platform like an idea platform. And i. i'm not being specific about what that means. Because i don't really know. But maybe the right term is that they're like the startup dream machine which actually lends itself more toward a studio. It would seem like. I mean just based on all the work. We've done it. Esl starting twenty-seven companies like. I do wonder if they'll shift earlier. And start being more of like a you literally are a person with an idea and we have an ability to sort of take that and plug it in and the cool thing about the studio. Is we have that. Machinery built for like the first eighteen months. And i'd be curious a lot of people talk about seed to ipo as an investor. It'll be interesting to see if injuries. And horowitz sort of become the startup dream machine all the way from idea to ipo. Yeah yeah yeah well or you could disco. Raise a whole lot of money and you could be the next disrupt the industry to great point. It's really like that. Mark and ben kind of have no sacred cows and like whatever you know. They're very experimental. They're very willing to change. And like it wouldn't surprise me. If some point in the near future they stopped talking about it as venture capital firm. Because they feel that it's a sort of broader set of activities. Clearly there already sorta going this direction with the media company and all that. Yep yeah we also totally skipped over crypto. Which i think is okay but can you give like one or two sentences on how they're different than other firms with a lens crypto. Well in one respect to simply that they were there. I in early and so they've been part of like these big wins other firms have to you know. Usb being primary among them and then native crypto firms like paradigm and multi coin. And all those great folks but you know to the extent that success breeds. Success is going to apply in crypto. Early stage crypto investing as it always has in venture andriessen has been there right like base. Dang salona yup pick like everything interesting. They're there so i think that's a big part of it. Know the other piece of it is like it's different during that and they've built a machinery to do it in a way that other traditional venture firms have not. I think i understand the history. Ripe think part of the reason why they created a separate fund for crypto versus. Doing it out of the main found was because of this the same things that trigger needing secondary's needing to be an ra. I think if you do too much token investing in a court fund you would need to register and be you would lose your venture capital exemption so while other firms were registering as are a to secondary's which of course injuries and also does they're like. Oh well we'll we'll we'll go this. I with crypto funds. And then now. For the whole firm to be able to buy tokens and said of equity. So i think it's just gonna take a lot of firms a time to catch up to that and the operations of things of staying abreast of the things you can do in the us versus international like overhead and they've invested that overhead and they figured out what the necessary infrastructure is from a regulatory perspective to do crypto investing with l. dollars. Yep so we talk about the case yeah.

And i have loudspeakers installed in every reporting cubicle around the world. So great march twenty fourteen. They close another one and a half billion dollar fund. Just a little over two years after fun three. The one and a half billion dollar fund assets under management here about four billion. Yup they do. They do read it. They do magic leap they Do all sorts of stuff. Interestingly though the pace actually steps down a little bit they stopped doing quite as many seeds during this time period. They've now since stepped back up the seeds. But i think maybe they started listening to folks about the signaling talker. Maybe entrepreneurs were actually listening to the signaling effect. It was resonating with people and let me save it like to recall a conversation. We had when you were starting your venture firm in one was that twenty s. seventeen twenty eighteen. Yeah this part of the thesis. You were like well. No one wants to raise seat rounds from the series affirms because the signal is so pure play seed firm and i think that makes a lotta sense. And that was the professionalization of the asset class of seed happened because of that of the signaling effect. Yeah yeah totally. it's funny it's completely disappeared. Now yeah well. In so many ways everyone has followed entries and horowitz's lead in truly every way the one that we're describing here is kind of shrugging a little bit on what stage is the right one for me. And how much do. I need to stick to my knitting. And you know how much does signal matter. Yup so okay in tony fifteen finally the new yorker piece comes out..

This was big news and shortly after he gets there in two thousand thirteen. He leaves a series b. Going base twenty five million dollars in coin based at a one fifty. Post while oh man really overpaying for that one hundred fifty post what is this thing even do crypto. Here's the kicker over the years. And and horowitz would keep buying shares from other investors. So are there early. Investors are selling shares including usb and others and andriessen. Mrs bye bye bye bye man i mean this is like ventures a power law. We're talking about somebody. Great outcomes here like this one dwarfs everything everything else at the depot injuries neuro. It's steak earlier this year in coin base is worth eleven billion dollars. Oh my god that's 7-x that entire one and a half billion dollar fund like. Oh my god thank god for the investors and that one point six billion dollar fund that that coin investment was out this fund instead of one of the smaller funds because returning a one point six billion dollar fund no easy feat but if you have one eleven billion dollar return in there okay. Yeah and this is the whole thesis right like these outcomes are bigger than you think. There is no bubble. These valuations are not just justified but like the crazy prices. We're paying now. We're getting the deal wild. it's wild. They invest all told in seventy six new companies in twenty twelve in two thousand thirteen. They add another ninety seven new companies including lift and pager duty which is going to be another great win for them robin hood. They only do the seed in robin hood. I think they'll continue until i think that's right. I think until like twenty twenty or something and they did it with the growth fund. Yeah yeah oculus. By the way all this data that we're finding from our friends of the show at pitchbook just an awesome resource for digging through this and figuring out who participated in. What round totally off. So great for this episode data. Bricks is in two thousand thirteen which is still private. But that's gonna be a monster for them. Most recently valued at twenty eight billion. They lead the seed round and have participated in. I think every round sense. I bet they own a ton of that compound. Yeah can't wait to see that s one. I just love this episode. We've got so much great stuff and we've got to so much funny stuff to benefits. That was twenty thirteen. How i forgot. They were in benefit as the big ones in xenophon.

"A product called slack now works out pretty well for everybody involved that it did and i threw out that three billion number earlier. A lot of these exit numbers are estimated. Since it's not like we actually know entries in horowitz's returns but we can back into it. Based on what we think they own from participating in various rounds or what they owned at ipo and when we think they may have liquidated assuming that they held it from ipo to the eighteen months afterwards till the salesforce transaction it would have been about. Three billion dollar outcomes so very good decision for injuries. And horowitz to let stuart keep running with the money even though you know the game was not bursting into flames the that's a good couple multiples on that huge six hundred and fifty million dollar fund to how would they ever return that hobo. And when you say how would they ever return that. That's that was the like. Knock on entries and horowitz at the time that was the like bare narrative was like these guys. Read this huge fun.

"I don't know the exact time line here. So i'm i'm both hypothesizing and dramatizing for effect but with that said it takes the call. He knows what doug is up to. He hangs up with doug and he shoots mark an instant message. We ought to start a venture capital firm and mark replies. I was thinking the same thing. Boom who that are friends as where we're gonna leave park one. Ooh as a perfect perfect spot. I feel like.

Yeah which is fascinating because then between the time where they have the idea to do this and when they actually launched the firm there is a global think financial crisis that they have to fund raise during. It's pretty wild totally well. I think we did a lot of great. Sorta playbook themes during the episode of their anymore. Highlight here yeah. There is actually one and we'll get into this more next time but it's pretty courageous who you choose. That word carefully did not. I did not okay. Came to my god. It's pretty courageous. What they do here right. I mean okay. It's not courageous. In that they have a lot of money they never need to work again. it cetera et cetera. But you know to turn down doug leoni to say we have a lot of money but we're going to deploy this money and put it at risk while all the rest of the world thinks everything is falling apart.

"It's so funny. How like you. We've painted hopefully the picture on this episode of all the life experiences leading into netscape leading into loud cloud leading into that moment with benchmark and then ovitz joining like it's all it all it gets expressed in andrews. It's wow there's one more principle that you touched on earlier. That i want to a little bit of a bow on. That's a founding. Principle that company. When ben horowitz is getting dressed down in the partner meeting at benchmark and they asked him you know. When are you gonna hire professional. Ceo this becomes a major tenant of entries and horowitz about technical founders being ceo's and being armed with the resources that they need and the ability to even before they would otherwise acquire those skills sort of have a leap on being a professional ceo. And there's two thousand three interview. I love reading things from two thousand and three About mark and ben because it's a really interesting perspective where it's post netscape post loud cloud post crash but they're just angel investors. It's been six years before they start..

David decided to open the season with the complete story of the firm that totally up ended the entire venture capital ecosystem a decade ago. injuries horowitz.

Fbi offices putting both men and women in uncomfortable positions in clearly violating workplace and sexual harassment laws. If we can't get the laws enrolls right at the fbi. How can we have them anywhere else in the world and people ask how could they have. M- messed up the nassir.

All these other the orlando terrorists the terrorists. Well it appears they have their eye on something other than law enforcement a little too often and this is a real problem. I've talked to men and women in the fbi that say that this behavior is become far too common and it goes on far too long.
