"We offload in February in Kuwait, and then we made the march up in the northern portion to Kuwait to stage where we're going to go through the breach lanes into Iraq. And then going in going into this, how'd the attitude compare to what you experienced the first Gulf War of the? Fellow Marines the attitude was absolutely there was no problem getting any marines to do anything the problem keeping them from doing something because they still had the twin towers burning in their head. You still have people in your platoon that were in New York when that actually happened in join the marines a couple of years later. So they were kids that were seventy that was the catalyst to make marines. On and you have that fight of few did this and. That, that was the energy that was going in as we. You know some of us who were here the first time. Knew that we were going to be back there again. Because people had always chastised or whatever or armchair quarterback George. Bush's decision on shoot. He of just pushed the troops up into my dad and knocked out Saddam Hussein in Nineteen ninety-one and the mission was get him out of Kuwait, put them back in their own house, and then he pulled back we Kinda I kinda knew when I was running enemy prisoners of war in the backseat am tracks and nineteen ninety-one. Lot of those kids didn't WanNa be there but the older warriors did. And lieutenant colonels and they're senior NCO that had been through the Iran war and everything else the look that they had on their face was trust me Mandela's nod over these kids that are in here. Don't have the fight and didn't grow up with that but my generation still around and I can still remember. A lieutenant colonel sitting in the back and I remember how? Does my was. Because I have a knife like on the top shoulder flack jacket so I could get to it, but I was sitting on a cam yet against panel second watch everybody in the crew compartment. But I remember my weapon at the time wasn't like in a condition one weapon with it on fire when even it would have been conditioned one on safe. But you're in close quarter and you have a long rifle in here and that's the ignorance you as a kid feel you're protected I have this they don't WanNa find anymore. But I also looked up in the cargo ashes in my platoon sergeant had the weapons station turned all the way to the back with the House that depressed into the back of the mural and the other e seven that was in this hatch was leaning and writing the vehicle backwards with a Beretta. And was in overwatch of me down there in other words, they probably wasn't so scared of me. Because they were probably scared those crazy guys will fire into the back of your in kill even at the risk of killing one of their own. So we didn't have any problem porno. Going into that trap in that mindset that we're going into their backyard this time. with the greatest marines that we could put forward on the field of battle at that time and all the other cohesive forces going into there. There was not a mindset other than let's just get to show started. Did you think? Look under your. You said that you thought, Hey, we're going there. We're going into their territory. Now this is actually where they live where probably going to see more resistance. was that widespread or did a lot of people think, Hey, man we we're probably look in two weeks at the most I know I was worried about that, which is a weird thing to say but I was thinking because I was not over there and I was thinking I'm going to miss. This is going to be over in a few weeks or at least it could be. What, what did you see? We talked about training earlier a different units trained to a different mentality that was here. I can only speak to the one that we trained to. We trained to be there to basically. Prevent. Iraqis from ever being able to do this again, somebody else dot and it wasn't going to be a nineteen ninety one. It was not going to be there just GONNA throw up their hands on they're going gonNA walk away to do that but I'm not only NOCCO. That other people were like that that you saw in training areas or you didn't see putting in the hours and the reps in the sets that actually took to lay the maps and talk the history and Kinda really ingrained that mindset into somebody it was. Overall the Marines. Have the. Mindset. sub-unit levels that were on there always goes back to whatever the commander whatever the leadership is GonNa. Make a focus a training at that time period because you can have the higher authority. The basically says we're GONNA go and we're GONNA do this mission but the people that you train eat sleep breathe with that put that into. You is normally not the chief of naval operations or the common on the Marine Corps. It is your lieutenant colonel, what is your captain it's your the. Gun Sort your chief petty officer or it's your guard you're left and the right. So I couldn't add a more cohesive unit that went in for the short amount of time that we did because I do believe that they didn't believe this was gonna be a two and a acumen and we're out of here I. Think they actually were very fearful when they kind of knew the major thing is to now take this guy out and we're going to do it in such a manner and such a speed that was out here that were sitting there with these vehicles their leftover from.

"Home away from home Feeling good Its skyline time. Billy coming in the Great American set up the rest of today's big show After one o'clock. Today's Joe Donlan he's a anchor from GMTV. I want to get an update from the city of Chicago. What's happening this morning? There were large numbers of individuals. Hundreds gather in front of police headquarters. Police riot gear called out in order to Ah stop the riders from storming and freeing prisoners. 100 of them locked up from looting Lloyd Baton and best buy. And Wal Mart, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy. And that's what's going on. Also, banks were broken into, and few people are arrested because there's a sense of social justice occurring. In fact, one commentator said this morning. Ran a story of a black lives matter. Protester who claimed this was reparations that if the government will not give us reparations, then we will take reparations of expensive purses. From Gucci and Louis of Aton and Oxy Code and from Ah law, greens and also flat screen TV's From best Buy. It is reparations and, as you know, all of us to one extent or another Article 11 Campbell County, Kenton County, Switzerland County, Claremont County, Butler County, Wilmington Since tonight, wherever you live, The city of Cincinnati is the heart that beats the tri state. The rest of us. There's about 758 100,000 that live in. Ah, in Hamilton County of that number, about 300,000 live in the city, Cincinnati. There's about two million in the area to which we directly broadcast and of that number 300,000 or in the city, which is what about 15% of the total But nonetheless, it's an important part of the Tri state. Because that is the engine Ah, Procter and Gamble. It is the engine of General Electric. It is the engine of sin Toss. It is the engine of fit. Third bank used to be Macy's headquarters. We have a huge companies here that employ literally tens of thousands of contribute mightily. The Western Southern's to Castellani is the farmers. The Browns. The Josephs. Those are the ones the lender splendors especially really a great contributors the quality of life. So I was told, and you were told that over a $1,000,000,000 in investment. By many in the so called C CDC CBC, The Sensei Business Council would be made in O T, R and also in downtown Cincinnati to change you're completely after the rites of Owen. And what you see now, when you walk around downtown in the evening hours is trick. It's you Don't there's nothing happening compared to what was happening before their most recent riots. And in April And it's sad. Steve Labor run CDC and when you talk to business owners and great restaurant towards those who runs a small shops You can't function in a business without income without business. Someone coming in, and I'm a supporter of O T r. I go down there normally once a week. Thursday and Friday. We're going to go back, Tio Finally, the sacred based or Ah, Pep Delores, We're going to go down there. I like to frequent those places. There is a fundamental Chemical difference between now and last year. In which there's plenty of room to park and businesses evaporating and they're closing down on my Twitter account at seven Willie at 700 wlw. I point out an article from the Ohio Restaurant Association, the O R. A that says at least 50% of restaurants will be out of business soon. Because of a lack of business. And when you think about a store like a walmart that government kept open, they kept open the Wal Mart in the Costco, so there were dozens and dozens and dozens Of small stores, mom and pop operation Selling the same products is Walmart or Costco. A lot of them. Most of them are going out of business, and that business is not evaporate. It's gone to Walmart. It's gonna Costco has gone in target. So when one like Jimi San, he says, how's it possible? At the market can be at all time highs when we're in the middle of pandemic, and there's 14 million Americans. Who are not working now that we're working in February, where there is the reason Because the stock of Wal Mart McDonald's at all time high. Wendy's best by not looted in most areas are going higher, higher and higher because they're getting more business but the economy That hires the mom and pop restaurant operators. Small business concerns Little hardware stores, little meat markets, They're going out of business and that businesses gravitating toward cos traded on the New York Stock Exchange. That's right. Proctor and God is doing so well. That's why Western Southern is doing so well. That's why glares meats are doing so well because individual still have the need to buy items, but instead of going to the small stores And Taylor, Milord, Covington or Cincinnati or Octavia or Hamilton. Our people are frightened. Economically. They're going in the big box retailers so the value of the stock continues to go up and up and up. As the economy continues to go down, down a down a triple whammy number one that pandemic itself number two. The government reaction to the pandemic, which has been so bad and number three Are the riots and the looting. I'll give you another example. I don't want to mention names. For those who say the election is going to be a referendum on Trump is going to be a referendum on Trump economically and police wise, As you know, I belong No. One or two clubs. In which a lot of Ah older shall we say women who live and even Dale Indian Hill. Ken would if you have places condominiums in Bellevue. And most shall I say older women with degrees older white women. They are socially somewhat liberal, but physically very conservative. And so these women voted twice for Barack Hussein Obama, they thought it was a safe choice. It was an inspirational choice. Whether it was McCain or Romney each felt as if that Obama spoke to their concerns. It was an attractive family and made them feel good to vote for a functioning black president and a functioning black family directors in America gave him a sense of pride. So these women who tended vote Republican voted for Obama twice. It made him feel good. And the last election. I had a choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Most of them said to me, you know what? It's terrible. This is the best our country could do. Hillary. Trump. And they're mad at Trump. For these reasons. He's gross with women doesn't treat people correctly. He could be a bully can be small minded. He can be petty, and they don't like that in the president. They don't like that in any man and the more women that came forward to say that He preyed upon them For one reason or another. Of course, they believe most of it happened. I'm sure some of it didn't but I believe most of a did occur. And they thought, well, we don't want that guy representing the country and they're poised in 2020 to vote for the Democrat which they're more than willing to do. Most of them voted for Denise Treehouse, for example. And most of them. I think going to vote for Alicia Reece, for example, makes him feel good. Okay, but now they're coming to the conclusion the last two or three weeks. That safety and security in the American way of life is under attack. And Joe Biden.

"And there in this time, this chapter this page in our nation's history now running for president and vice president, United States, it's almost Comical. I guess like if you're going to look at it from a Democrat standpoint is if you're trying to dismantle the racist system that America has created, you've got to put the two people that helped create the system in place to undo it. It only makes sense because they know all the mechanisms and all the tools so they know where to turn the wrench toe, loosen it up a little bit. But not only did Joe Biden create the system, he bragged about it in the seventies eighties and nineties, bragged about it and harassed into the only way Harris was going toe. Actually rise in her profession. Politics district attorney to senator was by putting people in jail And she used the Joe Biden crime bill to do just that and had a relationship with a married, You know, San Francisco City councilor or whatever, Willie Brown No big deal on a man as politics. It is definitely is politics. Joe Biden. Just just so you know where his head is. Well, I apologize. No one really knows where his head is. Where his head wass. When he was talking about the potential to be historic. The potential of having a first black president here in the United States. He was describing a then senator Barack Hussein Obama, the first African American is it would clean, articulate, nice looking guy. Nice looking guy. That's how it and we'll keep reminding you. I'm not gonna let you forget about it robs a gun unless you forget about it. Joe Biden is a racist. This was their attempt, and I say the DNC because they understand that if Joe Biden is the president, United States he will be a puppet. He is going to be a parking space. That's it, They will be able to control that branch of government. Fromthe house. They will be ableto. Basically, the legislative branch will be able to control the executive branch. They know that so this is their shot at trying to a race. The very clear fact that Joe Biden has been a racist for his entire 50 years and all and let's just think about it this way, right if this were Mitt Romney saying it, or Donald Trump, saying that exact comment. How many times you think CNN would play it? How many times you think MSNBC would play NBC News? ABC. They would play ad nauseum just to prove to you that Donald Trump is in fact racist but not Joe Biden because he's a Democrat. But instead today, CNN's running with the Biden called Harris to offer the job only 90 minutes before the announcement. No, I'm sorry..
"I'm a Feminist But..." Social Distance Dancing and Zoom
"I'm a feminist Bart today for the first time. I went into a dance studio in a socially distance way from my dance. Instructor, Melissa Bravo, so for those don't know. My lockdown project was dance lessons. Because I wanted to make meaning of the time and I also wanted to make a faster and I thought you know what dirty dancing montage makes the time go really fast. Just go well. They've done a bit of this and a bit of this and a bit of this and then three months passed. So I thought I would learn to dance for surveys INS, and so I hired a dance Tacoma. Pravo who's very close to me, we'd zoom together for four months now Danzig every single day. And today for the first time we went into a studio, as was legally allowed, stood far from each other, and we just staring at each other, because we've seen more of each other in lockdown, any other human being, but not in the flesh, and already like met her once before this all happened, so we were just staring at each other for ages going. It's really you. It's really it's like. And it was we were seeing a video game avatar come to live, and then she looked and she went. On my God. This room is so big. And I'm used to seeing you on the little screen. She said this room is so big unique, really small in here and I thought Oh my God. This room is making me look thin amazing. Attorney. was.

Police can track protesters even after the demonstrations end
"What surveillance tools police departments across the country are using to identify protesters or Lueders in the past week, but we know there are a lot of them from widespread camera. Technology drones to license plate readers, not to mention the facial recognition tool known as clearview AI, which has been used by dozens, if not hundreds of law enforcement agencies. Civil rights activists say these tools can be used to track protests in some cases to keep the peace, but they can also be used to find organizers and even arrest protesters after the fact and there aren't a lot of rules about how they get used Siwa. Hussein is a lawyer for the electronic frontier. Foundation law enforcement has access to things like CICI TV networks gunshot detection. Stingrays more commonly known as cell site. Simulators face recognition possible aerial surveillance, oftentimes law enforcement also has the ability to access private networks like ring to law enforcement agencies. Many times are acquiring these technologies without sort of any sort of public process where the public may not even be aware that they're using it, and because courts haven't necessarily caught up to the. The use of these various technologies, oftentimes, the constitutional protections aren't put in place either. We've heard a lot of reporting about clearview specifically. How much to your knowledge is that in use now? We're talking about face recognition. We know that it is proliferating across the country that there are many law enforcement agencies that already have the in us and we know that. The whole clearview Stan scandal came to light that some law enforcement agencies decided to stop their partnership, but others haven't. clearview is the subject of active litigation. Some law enforcement agencies continue to partner with them in the context of protest. How are these tools used sort of before during and after so in the moment there are technologies being used things like cell site simulators as well that can then identify where the locations of these of these devices are individuals who? Who posted on facebook or twitter were identified after the fact. Baltimore is one of the most prevalent examples that we have seen where we actually know that that law enforcement uses tool called Gio Fida which looked at public feeds for social media to try to identify people's locations during the Twenty fifteen protests in Baltimore to protest the death of Freddie Gray and many people were arrested on on completely unrelated charges because they were in the vicinity of the protests Sort of mass surveillance in that form, is incredibly problematic, but also knowing that. When we're talking about face recognition, they can always look at the footage of the fact and connect you through. You know the readers that they have the face recognition. I think that it's really important for people to know that we're not just talking about in the moment, but also after the fact that this technology can possibly be used by law enforcement. Sira?
A Conversation with Civil Rights Attorney Rabia Chaudry
"The story that works. You know I've had thousands of people over the years reach out. It's not just me not saying we read this book or we listen to this. We Watch this. And we didn't even realize some of the assumptions we held or the prejudices. We had about Muslims until we heard your story and was like Oh my God. You're just you're just like any of us and and you know it made it much more self aware I think storytelling is one of the most powerful aspects. Storytelling is what changes people's hearts and minds really. Nothing else works. What were some of the stories that I made you feel that like even growing up. You're always like a writer at heart. What were the stories that I took hold in you? Where did you get them? You know the stories growing up as an American Muslim when before nine eleven honestly a lot of people had no or maybe before the Iran hostage crisis. I'm trying to think of what international event made me realize that I'm a Muslim probably the first the first Gulf War. I remember the Gulf War. I was in middle school and the war began in the middle of the day and teacher came over to me and said hey tell your uncle Saddam Hussein to back off or something and I said who is it. Almost saying I'm not era. I don't even know what's happening and I was a kid. But you know a lot of the stories really just came from like my parents handing down stories like stories out of our religious traditions cultural tradition as an adult. I realize what's problematic with a lot of the stories? They're wonderful stories of very heroic stories but they also set up this false like idealism. That didn't allow us to feel like if you're a Muslim you can also have false. You can make mistakes. You can screw up because all the stories were told. Were about people who are just incredibly honorable. Did the most amazing things. And that's what you aspire to And that's what you're supposed to be What's an example? Gosh I mean one example is like my name so I'm named after medieval century like Muslim female saint one of the only Muslim female saints I best known I think she lived in the twelfth century. I don't even know Rubio other. We and you know the story I was told about her growing up. Was that you know she was incredibly right. Just and pious and she spent her days worshiping God in the evening she would go out and teach people and she had so much faith in God that she she just kind of stayed cloistered in this little space that she told people. Don't bring me any food. Because will deliver me. Sustenance and food would appear out of nowhere so for a little kid to be like okay I got like visas does incredible role model and And she says she was an amazing saint from what we know. But of course over the years you don't know what's been added to the tradition and it was just kind of this this really high expectation of piety and religious righteousness. That is really almost impossible to meet. Because you tell us a little bit about where you grew up your born in Pakistan and ended up in Maryland right. Yeah so I thought this was only like six or seven I was. I was under one when my parents came over here. Fundraising United States and my dad worked for the US Department of Agriculture. He was a veterinarian. And a lot of people don't know there's like this huge Boccassini veterinary like a whole gang of them in the US Department of Agriculture. They all came over in the seventies what we grew up in very small agricultural towns because of that. Because my dad had to work where you know where there was agricultural business oh Kansas Delaware Lancaster County Pennsylvania just very remote places where we were often the only people of color not just the only Muslim but really there were there. Were places where there were no other black people know. They're black families so very small town America. Then when I got about high school is when we kind of moved to a slightly bigger town with with diversity in it so but most of my formative years in adult life. I've grown up around the beltway. Northern Virginia or Maryland. And that's where I am. Now you've written on your blog that your parents know how to be quote critical of where we've been and where we are without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Yeah I guess I just wanted to know how your parents raised you and how that shaped you my parents you know. They left boxes on one thousand nine hundred seventy nine hundred seventy s block. Assad never left them so as time moved on their idea of what's culturally appropriate for us was forever one thousand nine hundred seventy something bucks on. Meaning you know my dad would be like. Why don't you have your hair? Your hair should be in two braids and it should be well oiled and dress a certain way and you should at home. We always wore a boxing enclosing home. You know we only eight bucks any food at home but the funny thing is we would visit Baucus on like in the eighty s and ninety s people over there would be like all the women have their care cut and permed and look really cute and they'd be like what is wrong with you people. Why do you look like like? You're from a blast from the past. But you know my my parents are. My Dad is a very spiritual person. He's not like a a religious person. Like ritualistic my mom is much more religious. My mom raised us with some really strong values. And look the one thing that we heard and over and over again is the whole purpose of your life is how you're going to serve other people like what are you. GonNa do with all the education. The time the health the wealth the youth everything you have is basically like a test like we're being tested for. What are you GonNa do with it? That's the whole point of being here and so you know I. I always appreciate that because I think that's the one thing that's driven me to always feel like there's more there's more to do. There's a lot more to do.

"Show and Peter how are you I'm great bill great to be with you now let's talk about the the book and I would note that down whenever I Google you and it comes up saying the controversial author of the massive cellar Clinton cash your controversial step back from this I look at that I look at Republicans bush forty one knew bush forty three left office know monetization one on Reagan left office he went to his ranch and now trump is actually cost them money in office what is it and the progressive mindset and this is in the mindset of libertarians are conservatives or moderates the progressive mindset says we got to monetize we got to make serious money what is there in the mindset that causes out to transpire well I think in the progressive mindset if you serve in government you're you're engaged and angelic behavior I mean you're you're you're not being selfish and greedy like people in the private sector and with that comes a sense of entitlement so in a sense that that that that you're deserving of data center you see this I mean you know we we broke the story on Joe Biden hunter Biden you know the million dollar your sweetheart deal hunter got from Ukrainians literally three weeks after Joe Biden his father as vice president is appointed point person on Ukraine policy Joe Biden says oh it looks bad but there's nothing wrong with it why because in Joe Biden's mind he is serve the public I'll put that in quotation marks since nineteen seventy two and his family deserves it so the idea is I'm I'm getting things for you it's time for me to monetize my fame and fortune thanks to that character the amazing thing to me is there sits in the oval office Barack Hussein Obama he sends Joe Biden to be in charge of Ukraine quickly his son starts making three million dollars over three years about eighty thousand a month and and and Joe Biden's mine and bomb is mine it wasn't appropriate for Joe Biden is ceda hunter hunter who's got it a sordid past you can't do that when I'm over here to get rid of corruption in Ukraine one hundred did was participate in it why didn't Obama stop yeah you didn't stop it because either he didn't care or you didn't have a full picture and I think it's just that he didn't care and what they keep saying that you people don't understand about the binds it's it's not just hunter and it's not just you crane hunter ran a veritable United Nations of corruption he did deals in China he deals in Kazakhstan deals an area he had no expertise no background any took in the money and we know that because we have the bank records related to a a corruption case involving hunter by his business partner but even more than that bill you have what I call the Biden fives and I talk about this in the book the Biden chapter seventy pages long five members of the Biden family only one of those being hunter cashed in while he was vice president you got his brother James whose father Frank his sister Valerie and his daughter Ashley's husband they all cashed in on sweetheart deals while Joe was vice president if systematic corruption when you're talking about the blinds about two weeks ago headline FBI recently rates business connected to James Biden Joe Biden's brother F. B. I. sounds like more trouble the company in question americorps holdings acquires and manages real hospitals declared bankruptcy in December now the F. B. I.'s raiding the home of the CEO of the company grand white and also others that that doesn't seem to be any interest by the FBI or by others to go after the Clintons the binds the Obamas what is their structurally in the mind of the F. B. I. I'm not talking the ninety nine percent I mean the one percent at the main base and justice the art of Robert F. Kennedy building what is there in their mind that we look for reasons to exonerate the Democrats but we look for reasons to implicate the Republicans what is what I think a lot of a bill has to do with what I call the permanent political class I mean Joe Biden is is you know he's older now but he's basically been a permanent fixture in Washington for forty years a guy like Donald Trump is going to calm I don't don trump's gonna stay in Washington DC when he leaves the White House he's gonna leave so there's a club atmosphere is by bipartisan it's the permanent political class and the reason that you don't have some Republicans warning to investigate Joe Biden is either their family is involved in some level of similar activity order hoping to at some point so this kind of the unwritten rule that we don't go after a prominent political figures and that's the reason we need to be shouting this from the rooftops we need to exposing it because here's the thing voters care about this stuff it's the reason I'm convinced that trump won in twenty sixteen and even though I think Bernie's ideas are are completely wrong for the country what's fueling his candidacy is the same anger at the corrupt establishment in Washington DC if if something universal on both sides of the aisle let's talk about your work on Bernie Sanders until your research about the hundreds of tens of millions of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife many thought he was a socialist who wants a revolution let's face it is a communist he wants the by violent means overthrow the United States government which is the definition of a revolution he wants fundamental change he wants the U. S. government to seize the assets of hospitals oil companies pharmaceuticals and so one would think that a guy like that is not really concerned about money he's a Ben and Jerry kind of a guy but in reality what did you find about how Bernie Sanders monetize socialism for his benefit but not ours you mentioned you know that that that sort of this is is a you know communist leanings I mean it's like the old Brezhnev stays in the Soviet Union you had them talking about world while pollution in the proletariat but they all had five deals in corrupt deals live like kings and Bernice case you know he's worth millions of dollars some of that came from writing books he's actually written more books and he's actually introduced pieces of legislation that if passed but a lot of people don't realize it more than half a million dollars of his own campaign funds have gone to buying his own book but the bigger the bigger issue bill is this this this dirty little secret about washing call media buying and and Bernie Sanders's latched on to this yeah if you were running for the Senate in the state of Ohio and you said Peter I want you to do my media buys by my TV and radio I get a commission of C. off of that it could be anywhere from ten to fifteen percent goes to the media buyer in the beauty of it is that doesn't show up anywhere in Federal Election Commission records you don't know who the media buyers well here's what Bernie did she saw this and what did he do when he started running for Congress left of the Senate he put his wife in charge of the media by which means she's got the commission even though she had no background in advertising and media buying any of this stuff so we know that she and Bernie we received hundreds of thousands of dollars by doing that and the great mystery comes to the twenty sixteen election will Bernice dropped eighty three million dollars on media buys so that means the commission somewhere between eight million and twelve million dollars where did it go well it went through a company called old town media old town media did not have a website did not have other clients it was registered to a home in the coldest sack in suburban Virginia all in the two owners of old town media were long time friends of James Sanders yeah he was after she heard Jane was asked about this by a progressive reporter in twenty sixteen what do you know about old town media do you have any connection to old town media and are you involved in this in any way and according to the professor reporter Jane Sanders just hung up the phone room of what happened to the twelve million dollars who got the media commission on that we just don't know what it's million ends is a little bit of money he monetizes the campaign so those are contribute to thirty six dollars each to the to the Sanders campaign have got to understand that goes into a pot and out of the pot comes all the media buys and that's how the Sanders family gets paid yeah and then the other thing that I think people need to know is that you know Bernie Sanders has been very clear cut in people calling the left kind of you Mister John the Baptist progressive movement why he's out of eating locusts and honey well you know he's worth millions of dollars he actually has an investment portfolio and when you look at his investment portfolio I hate to break this to you bill I know this is going to shock you he's not invested in like renewable energy companies he's not invested in you know some organic farm I mean he's invested in fortune five hundred stock that's where his investment portfolio is it's not a socially responsible investment fund that's where his investments are in when you set up you know we bought his third home the vacation home they set it up in the trust precisely to avoid paying some taxes so you know Bernie Sanders is not John the Baptist use is is more like a qualified king Herod at least in the way that is that he handles his investments in his own money let's move on to Lizabeth Warren she is picturing yourself as a every woman she knows exactly how you live your life she spent time a course in Oklahoma and then and she monetized her so called Indian heritage and I probably have more Indian blood to me than she does she use all along but you have great reporting on how she a really bad millions of dollars from corporations even though she rants and raves against corporate America how to Elizabeth Warren maker money our records network is around twelve million dollars they pay well at Harvard Law School they don't pay that well so the question becomes how did you make that money and so we re traced this we went through and found that in the mid nineteen nineties Elizabeth one was hired by the U. S. Congress and paid by us the taxpayers to help Congress to rewrite some of the bankruptcy laws okay she's a lawyer that makes sense they hire her they tend to do this whole ideas are incorporated into the bankruptcy code then what does she do bill she goes to large corporations Dow chemical and others and says you hire me as a consultant and I will help you navigate around the law I actually wrote genius is very corrupt moves and other people in Washington is done have done this she's denounced other people that have done this but she ended up working for Dow chemical Armstrong world wide a whole host of large corporations who are facing class action lawsuit towards and she was helping them minimize their exposure that's obvious a legitimate thing to do but the fact that she says I've been fighting for the little guy my entire life is simply not true she made millions of dollars helping the big guy large corporations slip out of responsibilities as it related to people who were damaged by the products those companies have produced you don't fall a few nights ago I'm watching Chris Matthews every now and then is a lucid moment and he was ranting and raving about socialism the evil socialism is because all over the world any referenced Ohio senator Sherrod brown that Sherrod brown is the kind of person that we need there because he looks after the little guys a union guy so Sherrod brown is being promoted by the mainstream media as kind of Bernie Sanders light and you've investigated were weren't shared brown gets his money from where is it that's very interesting shirt brown he always been in public life since you graduate from college he ran for the state legislature he listed himself he was still a senior at Yale when he ran for office he listed himself bill as a farmer under our occupation I don't know what kind of form he
Listener Questions: Marketing That's Working Today
"Dive in to listener. Questions Ruben. Thanks so much for coming back on the show man. Thanks for the invite. Yeah it's GonNa be fun. I think you have some good insight on a lot of these questions today. Our first question is from will and it's actually a question that I don't think you and I have a lot of insight into so I've called in a remote correspondent to help us out with that. The question is are there any good places that you know of to pick up more stuff on affiliate marketing? One thing that came out of this past year is that I can write a lot faster and more effectively than I thought. I'm not convinced that writing code is even my strong suit even though lots of people tell me as I'd like to explore options in this area a bit more but I'd like to borrow your behest filter for a minute trouble with people. Teaching affiliate marketing is that they're also affiliate marketers and a signal to noise ratio is brutal thanks. Well that's been my experiences. Well I ruin before we recorded. You mentioned that you haven't been in the affiliate marketing area for a while. You'd never like that comment that most of the people selling courses our affiliate marketers as well. So it's really hard to know what's legit exactly you're dead on will and so what I did is I tapped a friend and mentor. Microsoft Speaker Taylor Hendrickson who does exist in that space a lot of the stuff and affiliate space. And let's throw that over to Taylor. Hey thanks for the question will give him my name's Taylor and I've been doing affiliate marketing in one form or another since before the panda update in Google which view non nerds out there almost ten years. Now you're completely right that most people out there who are quote teaching affiliate marketing actually aren't good at themselves or just regurgitating the same information. They senior of posted a billions of times. That doesn't actually help anything or anybody. So for that reason. I actually really don't have any good courses or resources to point to affiliate marketing. Who aren't just hawking the same stuff everybody else's but one of us did provide a little bit more perspective or way of thinking about affiliate marketing. I think will help guide you in the right direction and looking for the main core of affiliate marketing the same main core is normal business. You get into it solving the defined set of problems for defined audience. So when you look at WHO's doing that well filial marketing look at places like wire cutter. All they're doing is recommending the best version of whatever. The problem people were coming to the website for in exchange for the commission. They know that the only reason they have an audience were bought for untold. Millions OF DOLLARS BY THE NEW YORK. Times is because they provide amazing value to the people coming. They're looking for solutions to their specific problems. So I'd recommend the same thing for anybody looking to get into marketing. How can you provide value to very specific audience with very specific problems by recommending things that you would actually recommend to a friend or a loved one not just as a highest philly commission or just random things? You're trying to make a quick buck. People see through that really quick and if anybody is promising those one click riches or anything. That seems a little bit too good to be true or actually doesn't stand the test of this last another years completely run the other direction because they are probably a charlatan. So I know this doesn't quite answer the question you were asking but hopefully give some perspective as to how to think about this industry better now back to you rob. Thank you so much Taylor. Being are onsite correspondent for the affiliate marketing question. Our next question is a voicemail around new modes and methods of marketing. Hey Rob wave to Mike. Muslims donal longtime listener You both kept me going through tough times so really appreciate that. I'm a recent return to my home country of Ireland but a tech networks and security for a long time Bacchus I built my first self-funded. Saas up twenty eighteen. It did live technical screening of engineering skills and engineering skills but to get traction for a ton of reasons. somewhat intentionally did things backwards like built at first as I was new Tyrrell's and web APPs so I was learning as I went a failed at marketing failed to get paying customers Alba. I did demo for some large and small works on experimented with a whole host of cold and warm methods to get leads so after nearly given up I ended up pivoting PUN SIFT DOT com a few months ago to Saskatoon back in the deception text base. So it now automatically. Honey Tokens Your deploy branches effectively. It's kind of like a breach detection. Up for Saas and infrastructure. Codes did enables attacker detection in Minnesota the months but there's some customer education required for both security teams or engineering teams. And I'm trying to figure out positioning and pricing but my traffic is currently almost nonexistent so as I restart marketing efforts. I'm struck by the recent five. I'm hearing on the podcast and elsewhere that an email list an existing audience doesn't really cut it for Saas any longer so apart from one to one hundred. Combat Customer by customer are there any other new or nontraditional avenues? I should or could be exploring for marketing. Rather than content marketing. Seo PPC and giving talks doing. Podcasts ARE GONNA conferences any help or guidance. Much appreciated love what. You're both doing thank you so thanks so much for the question. I think I want to chime in real quick before I throw it over to you. I've heard a couple people quote back to me. That like on the podcast. I've said that having an existing audience doesn't help and I really want to clarify that. Because if you have an existing audience that is BTC. I'm sorry is a beat. A be focused audience and they could potentially be customer of yourself. I think there's huge value in that. Especially if you have ten thousand or thirty thousand on an email list when I talk about this audience thing not being the end all be all of SAS is that I've seen the kind of beat AC- marketers have a large audience of kind of WanNa preneurs or folks who were looking for that that opportunity to make a million to make money online crowd and then they try to launch US asset for them and they realized that none of them want to pay and the truth is through the roof. And there's a bunch of mess with it and and that is really hard. It's a lot harder than selling info products. That's more of what I'm saying. You are trying to say like if you have info product audience and you're making hundreds of thousands a year and you think that you can switch to SAS and make hundreds of thousands of year. I've never seen anyone do that. Well right so do you. Does that make sense? And do you agree or disagree with that? Yeah I completely agree that sort of the Internet marketing space where basically most. It's usually INFO`products where happens lot selling in that way Selling to people who are trying to buy Education courses and other products is different than selling a sas so yet. I've never seen it. I've known several people have tried to do it. That had big audiences that were successful with info products. Really usually struggle when it comes to selling this just because it's different. Yeah I agree. I think the one example that I can think of that worked with Klay Collins with Lepage's but it was man. It was all annual plans. It was pretty high pressure sales. If you went to their webinars it was really marketed. In a very specific way and frankly they struggle with that longer term they got big quickly but then that had its own drag on the business there couple there couple that have done it the It's not everyone but most people are not going to be able to do it. I'm the other one that I can think of is click funnels. What's his name Brunson something Russell Brunson. Yes so to donate question. What do you think about? And he mentioned a bunch of stuff Hussein content marketing. Seo Pay per click. One on one. I think he was meaning cold emails. Speaking at conferences. Going on podcast right and in my like all that stuff still works right right right it does. Some of it is harder than it used to be like paid. Ads are generally more expensive across the board content marketing back in the day. You do a volley Volume thing just published two three four five posts a week and the more republished more Traffic you got so in some ways it used to be easier but things have changed in its I'm not sure that I'd say that it's a lot harder. It's a little bit harder but it's it's also different so it's about like just getting educated on what's working nowadays I think it's part of it but I think one of the things that you mentioned was that he was trying to figure out positioning pricing. And things like that and I don't know about you but when I hear something like that I'd be kind of hesitant to start looking at channels. That are that are a lot of people aren't using there aren't proven because in my mind I would need to figure out that I can sell this product who the customer is had as a customer by that. This is going to work. That is fun that I have a funnel that kind of works before I kinda start exploring other channels and channels that that are little unusual or something like that right. Where do you think about that? Yeah I think you're right. It sounds like he's in customer Developmental Mostel. Maybe his product is is to the point. People can use it but if you don't positioning pricing down than yeah I wouldn't. I would really wouldn't start marketing yet. I would be doing a lot of sales. Yes so a lot of people equate the two is the but the different like I see. Sales is really a one on one. Act even if you draw in all the leads through marketing techniques than the sales becomes conversations. And that's where yeah in his case I'd be looking to have a lot of conversations and try to pick out their language to to figure out positioning you learn so much from those conversations that later help you do marketing In a better way otherwise. You're just sort of guessing you know. I'm I don't know this category. So maybe if this category has a lot of competitors and they're doing really well and it's pretty established the you know that this type of product works. That's a I think that's a different situation where you can have more A little bit more confidence but it still pays to sort of do that upfront work. I think

Does killing Soleimani really change anything in the Middle East?
"For a generation Iran's May General Sulejmani he was a consequential Fica League in the Persian Gulf for the Americans in the region Sunnis? He was a terrorist mastermind for the Iranians the Assad regime in Syria Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sulejmani was a hero who protected the Shia cresent in the region. So it's no wonder the Iranian generals death via a drone attack attack in Baghdad. That was a huge news story. Earlier this month cast into the money rainy and military commander assassinated in the US drone strike on mm struggling marks a huge escalation coming just days at was revered by Iran supporters in proxies being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in the Middle East over the we took took action last night to stop a war. What comes next? What's the broader strategy? Here we did not take action to start a war. Your since the American killing of Sulejmani Tehran launched a missile strike on your spices in Iraq and in the process mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian Ilana carrying one hundred seventy six passengers something. The Mullah's had initially denied responsibility but crucially the Iranians signings avoided killing Americans. which was the red line? The president trump has drawn. US military response. So we'll this episode. Leave Iran Ryan stronger or is tyron now more isolated than ever and what is the showdown between Tehran and Washington Maine for Iraq the US military Tori prisons there and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Danny Applica- is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington and Co host of the AAAGH. Ah podcast what the Hell is going on. Making sense of the world get identity. Hey Tom and I'm in. Sokoll is author of Iran Rausing the survival and and future of the Islamic Republic and CO author of Islam beyond borders the Oma in world politics. Welcome back to Iran. How good morning now? Also Amani abetted genocide in Syria to keep the Assad regime in power. He's responsible for the deaths of many American troops. He armed Hezbollah in. Lebanon with rockets is to attack. Innocent Israelis killed many innocent Sunnis in Iraq. So I mean isn't the world better off without Sulejmani. Were president trump. I think so. And also quite a number of American allies in the region Probably I think the same way but at the same time demand was a national hero and in fact that he was the one of the top strategic brains behind Iran's overseas operations and expansion of eight onion influence in the region. I will just support related to the fair that it only leadership has about the possibility of an American attack or an Israeli attack on a combined and attack. But let me see this Tom that nobody is commendable. dimitris full of commanders. Top commanders into the Nobel Prize winners and so on General money is being replaced And I think e to the debt is a widespread view in the West. That if you bump one or two individuals isn't the situation is going to get better We duty cold in history that take for example a Prime Minister Anthony Eden go around the nineteen fifties and calling for the elimination of Jamaa Nasser as the national president of Egypt and has was that this man is removed from a then. Everything will be fine. Nothing died in nine hundred. Seventy and a situation has not improved a cold and and at the same thing was said to be so I mean the point though. Is that knocking off Salomon. He's not going to make a great deal of difference. But also can I just add to this Dani salamone and these Iranian backed Shia proxies. They did help inadvertently into why help. America Islamic state. So does it worry you that people cheering the loudest about this. Guy's death other suny jihadists in there are slighted areas in the desert and the mountains of Iraq and Syria. I don't think they're the ones who are cheering the loudest I. I think you heard pretty loud cheering from here. I think you heard some plenty of loud cheering in In Iraq and Lebanon and and elsewhere throughout throughout the region. Look you know. I think it's important to acknowledge that. That as the head of the cuts force Qassem Soleimani was a very powerful folks very influential very strategic and very effective leader and he brought that effectiveness to things. That would terrible And the arming of Hezbollah. The murderer of half million Syrians. The arming of mass. The arming of in Yemen. We could go on for a while here but but But he did all of those things but when when the challenge was from Sundays you had is. He helped set up and guide ride. The hoste. Shabby the popular mobilization units in Iraq that That that ended up being part of the battle to to defeat Isis. The problem here is that every situation in the region is is more complicated than the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because Stalin Fort with us to defeat Nazi Germany did not make stolen a good guy. And if you look at these anti-regime protests some and. I've been breaking out in Iran since Tehran admitted that its military military shot down. A Ukrainian passenger Ilana have the Iranians overreached because despite the Iranian successes in Iraq Syria and Lebanon on on their rule out officials sites there on stable they print across he so have the Iranians overreached. There's no doubt that many Iranians feel about the Ashim and today have protested over the last few months in order to bring about A structural reforms today as a system of governance and economy which is setting enormously under represent- trump's sanctions but has the Iran overreached. What are I pointed out earlier I mean Iran does fear a a very strongly as possible American that much Israeli combined attack and therefore what update on your the humans done his belt reasonable security and press such for itself which would really want? Shepherdess Arafat at all costs but that does not necessarily Saudi mean that Iran is only Aggressive power in the region aggressive actor in the region. I mean. Let's not forget that that that the destabilization Iraq really started the two thousand three. US invasion of that country. Okay so the. The American invasion of Iraq helped Iran on because it overturned the suny state and it created a Shia majority Stein. I saw a natural law with the Shia brethren in Tehran following following on from that Danny shortly a problem about striking at pro Iranian sheeham paramilitary groups as trump has done is the now part of the Iraqi state. So is it any wonder. Washington's increasingly modulation is part of the world. First of all. I think it's offensive talk about Shiites. As if they're all some sort of monolith. The share of Iraq are Arabs. The Shia of Iran are Persians. These these are different people this. These two countries Shia versus Shia fought a bloody war for eight years in which there were one million casualties casualties in the nineteen eighties. The notion that somehow Iraq is a natural satellite or or or or slave to Iran is wrong Iran has chosen to try to dominate that country and demonstrations throughout the central and southern part of Iraq. Over the last month have been against Iranian domination the Iranian consulate in Jeff was burned to the ground at the end of last year not by Sonny's he's not by Sunni jihadis not by Isis not by Kurds but by Shiites carrying placards yelling out to out for Iran. Get Out of our country and I think that that is absolutely right to suggest that Iran has gained more influence in Iraq since the demise of Saddam Hussein. I I guess I I'm just not that big a fan of Saddam Hussein and the and the stability that he brought to Iraq. I wish that the United States had done more in the aftermath of the wall. I think thinks that we I think that we failed miserably. In many instances I think it was absolutely fatal in two thousand eleven when at a time of genuine stability in Iraq Iraq. President Obama withdrew troops and really provided the opportunity for Isis. To rise up again. My guest Daniel Placate from the American Enterprise Institute. And I'm in Sokoll. He's the author of Iran rausing and Islam beyond borders. I mean how would you respond to all of this. Because we've got these tensions here between Tehran Iran and Washington and the Iranian backed Shia politicians released most of them in Baghdad. I support if not closer ties with Tehran. They want the the Americans out of Iraq. But don't the sooners and the Kurds fee for the Iranian intrusion in Iraqi sovereignty. I absolutely and of course sir. The APP is not only the president of the American so who'd be which are being the opposed to in Iraq but also the presence of eight onions there. No question Ah about that but at the same time if we know that the majority of the Iraqi population is made up of the Shiites and some powerful elements among the Shiites have got the value equals relationship and relationship. What they don't know in the meantime ago? The Iraqi parliament release the iranian-backed Majority Shia legislators I support the withdrawal of US troops Danny now given trump's ambivalence about the region and the fact that he was elected impact to get the US out of the so-called forever awards isn't a US military withdrawal from Iraq. Just what trump and many war-weary Americans want. Well it's kind of funny. Isn't it because we start off talking about the you know the Iranians and what they want and and of course. The number one goal is to get the Americans out of the region and that is in fact the instruction is that has gone out to all of their proxy groups. All around the region. Is You need to step up activities to get the Americans out. Then we've got the president of the United States. It's who dearest and fondest goal is to get American troops out of the region so so a couple weeks after killing Kassim Sulaimaniyah. We have this unbelievably in coherent bizarre response. Where we where we're doing exactly what the around him one let? This is what Donald Trump has to sort out. He has to sort out whether he's the president. He's the kind minded president who who leads in a forthright fashion against men like costume ceremony. Who Seek to destabilize the region and extend Iran's hegemony Germany or he is going to be the kind of president that like Bernie Sanders like Barack Obama wants to turn around and high tail fin is to the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's uh-huh Washington energy independent America Stein fought these endless wars danny well A? They aren't endless wars. We have lost fewer people in these. This was than than than we lost a single day in World War Two so while they are conflicts that have continued on and off to a certain extent. You know the notion Shen that we've been sold that somehow we've still got one hundred and fifty thousand troops on the ground and losing them at a rapid pace is just wrong. We lost six in Syria. I I mourn every single one of them but the Kurds lost eleven thousand in their fight against Isis. So what what. What is the reason? We'll tell you very straightforwardly woodley because every time we turn tail every time someone says let's get out of that bloody Middle East. Let's pay attention to something fun. Like Asia and you'd like that. Tom Would now but hang on your way but every time we say that we end up being dragged back because the dynamics in the region of the ones that bring us back we need. We need a long-term solution that lets us. Stay away for good rather than one where we run away. Anita did it come back every single decade I mean the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal Provided tyron with as much as apparently one hundred fifty billion dollar windfall. Aw and certainly many people who are skeptical of the deal side that the Iranian spent lavishly arming the Shia militias across the region. So what it was trump right to pull the US out of the deal and instead impose maximum Prussia built around these economic sanctions on Iran. I think he was totally wrong and and I can care. There has been a backlash president. Trump's would would you withdrawal has a basically a provoked said that on Not to really go for the for police. Speed to in order to rebuild that they have nuclear program and. I think you're going to really do that. And of course that also carries the risk of a possible confrontation from tation between the United States and Iran possibly Israeli attacks on Iran and that could easily dissolved in a regional warfare. That at the end nobody may may be able to control it Danny. Any I mean a lively debate. Thanks so much for being back on. ABC

Imperial Oil ignored its own findings on climate change decades ago
"The effects of climate change are being witnessed all over the world. It's the biggest story right. Now there are downright apocalyptic take images coming out of Australia right now. The country's battling hundreds of fires that burned across the country for months now roads and villages turned into rivers overnight right and tens of thousands displaced many areas in central and southern Somalia have been completely caught off and people here are now in urgent. Need aide Greenland's is sheets is the biggest in the northern hemisphere and it's in meltdown. All of this is a warning sign for the while. We hear it all the time. This is a dire situation. Time is running out. It's a crisis. Makes you wonder if we knew what we know now. Old decades ago could we have done something to stop. The devastation. Could much of what we're seeing today been reversed in the troubling answer is probably doubly. Yes in fact. Some people did know what was happening. As far back as the nineteen sixties major fossil fuel companies are alleged to have known about Science and worse that they were contributing one major Canadian company in particular its own research and ignored the findings and as we hear from our guest today. Imperial Oil Royal Coulda changed its business. Model could have been a leader to fight climate change but instead just decided to make bigger profit often. I'm Richard Southern Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Berta Hussein is a writer at the intercept joins us now Heimer Taza. How good thank you interesting article? One that I think is going to the real eye opener for a lot of people. Maybe anger a lot of people first off. It's really centering around a company that we use here in Canada a lot whether we know it or not tell us what is his imperial oil. Who are they so imperial oil is the Canadian subsidiary of Exxonmobil? The famous Fossil fuel company. It's best known in Canada. Zal at the consumer level for esso-brand gas stations. So imperial is essentially Exxon's arm in Canada and Essel is its most prominent consumer manifestation. Yeah they're everywhere you know but a tiger in your tank bright and you're saying going back to what the nineteen sixties imperial oil knew about the dangers of climate change. What exactly did they know back then? Murtaza well in the nineteen sixties the specific contours of the problem. With coming into view. They will not definite about climate. Change percents at that time but they knew that they were causing serious harm to the environment and they knew that this would eventually lead to a public outcry cry. If Canadians became aware of the full scope. The heart they were causing annual this time. You think of things like air quality polity destruction of habitat destruction of ecosystems. It was only in the later decades by the nineties. They were very very sure are about the science of climate change. We're talking maybe. Almost three decades ago they had come to a high degree of certainty about the impacts of climate change. Despite that knowledge they did not change their behavior and in fact did whatever they could to prevent the public from reaching the same level certainty. EG about the issue that they have what did they do to sway public opinion away from what they knew was the fact that climate change was real and that they were participating ended. What did they do to sway public opinion? Well over a decade imperial has been very concerned about possibility of public backlash and particularly particularly if that backlash led to calls for regulation up their activities or the imposition of climate or environmental regulation but somehow impacted their ability to carry out their operations. So going back to the sixties and then onwards from there are they attempted to do their own public relations campaigns to sway public opinion to Muddy the waters over their own environmental record and to push back against any organized attempt to curtail their activities but it wasn't just Pr. It was also surveillance of non-governmental organizations in Canada local ones like the Canadian Arctic Commission and other consumer advocacy groups to go on the offensive against these people even though they were much smaller than imperial oil oil of course much smaller than Exxon Mobil. What do you mean surveillance where they fled following people around? Was the documents show that they were compiling dossiers on environmental loops in Canada information about their key spokes people their finances their addresses so documents. Give us some insight into do the type that could carry out until two or they did they. Certainly it was on the table for them. Did they do anything. Imperial oil to try. Try and mitigate climate change. I mean you write in your article that a a PR company analyze different ways that the company could reduce its carbon footprint. Do they do anything well in the early nineties you know. Many many decades ago now they essentially knew that for society to avoid the catastrophic this traffic impacts of climate change. It would need to move from fossil fuel extraction to renewables techniques like carbon capture. Many the things that we've discussed today is being necessary to avert the climate prices but the thing is right this knowledge they did not twenty significant degree agreed change their operation. They continued to extract at the same levels and even higher levels year over year this day. They did not engage in the fundamental structural changes that they needed to to avert this crisis but one thing that they did do and I think this quite telling is that they changed the design their own platform in the Arctic and elsewhere to accommodate the fact of rising sea levels and melting sea ice. So they knew this is real soul strongly that they changed their own platform designed to accommodate that but they did not embark on the structural changes. Their business models would have been necessary. And it's even more unfortunate. Because if they had them that they would have had a first mover advantage and renewable energy. You talk about the the Arctic you mentioned in your article and this may be one of the more shocking things is that they looked imperial looked at the the melting sea ice as a new business opportunity for them right right so essentially imperial and other fossil fuel companies day for a very long time had the best climate climate research capacity is any organizations in the world they knew very intimately impacts of change around the world atmosphere here and in the Arctic and now they developed capacities partly for the reasons I mentioned earlier because they were concerned about public backlash over their environmental. I mental record. They wanted to get as good a pictures possible but what they also did was that the this usage capacity which had offensively developed to you know hopefully reduce environmental harm or get a better picture of it also to scope out new business opportunities that may emerge in it radically. Did you date environment. They said hey the fact that there's less CIA is going to allow us to go up further into the Arctic and drill for more oil right more or less maybe more technical language but you just if it was that the fate of Arctic Sea ice will determine how imperial operates right another another interesting thing to with imperial oil was how they saw carbon taxing coming many years ago and how they were how they were sure that that would actually mitigate mitigate some of the climate change of facts right what what did they say about carbon pricing. All those years ago well they knew that carbon pricing would be necessary. She would use fossil fuel emissions but they essentially low ball the numbers the new. That's a much higher number of needed even many decades but they made proposals which were arts private private knowledge and essentially you know we would have probably taxes through which we do need need. Do we need to be much much higher than you would. He needs to be several decades. When imperial and other companies had essentially deceived? The public was imperial. Oil's response to all this. You ask them for response to these documents. You got about all the knowledge they had one of these say. Well you know one thing that I This article is very important that they knew these things privately but for many years thereafter. CEO's if imperial were saying doing things in public when she concluded odds with their own private use and affiliate odds with the consensus of climate change mainly in the late nineties. You know imperial. You see Yo- Roller Peterson was saying that carbon dioxide. It's good for your I'm in started pollutant. There's no consensus about this issue. All and you know essentially open to debate internally do not open to debate very serious and very real so you know response In the light of this it was just that they take seriously and committed to doing what the cans move with the climate crisis. And you know the the thing is not revert. This crisis is businesses usual. Something's GonNa Change. It should've changed three decades ago four decades ago but if it does not radically change now you don't have to prepare for very ugly future in which the vast majority of people many Canadians are going to suffer grievously. Should we be shocked by this. I I mean you know. The cigarette companies knew there product caused cancer. I guess the you know the candy companies. Probably new sugar wasn't very good for people but they kept selling it. This is what Capitalism demands should we be singling energy companies. Like it'd be real oil out. Aren't they just doing what. Capitalism demands of them the difference between the tobacco industry and big sugar and fossil fuel industry. Is that the consequences of these. Allies are much much sh greater than other basic consumer products and. That's not to say that the impact is tobacco and sugar on Health Canadians and others not been grievous what we're talking about eventually an existential threat to industrial civilization Industry Association. We may we now have a planet anymore on which even make future mistakes or to rectify current mistakes. That's why it's really really far more serious than those other phenomena. All those were also serious. Now we're talking about something that we've never experienced before human beings have never done anything anything on such a scale as what they've now begun to
What exactly are 'war powers' and why is Congress voting on them?
"The United States moves with me to translate into action the United Nations call to arms against the aggressor American occupation troops in Japan are hurried to the defense of the Korean Republic combat units of the United States Marine Corps arrive in Vietnam joining other marines already there the peak in the pattern was Lyndon Johnson's Gulf of Tonkin resolution in nineteen sixty four that led to the escalation of the Vietnam War last year act of aggression directly around persons okay brings home to all of us in the United States once a restaurant of the peace and security in Southeast Asia nearly a decade later as that conflict had stretched into another president's second term Congress rallied to reassert its constitutional role good evening the Congress of the United States in a historic action today made effective a limitation on the powers of the president to make war in nineteen seventy three democratic majorities in both chambers past the war powers resolution requiring the president to notify Congress within forty eight hours when troops were sent into harm's way that legislation also required president to end any foreign military action after sixty days unless Congress had declared war or passed an authorization for the use of military force a phrase that's come to be known as in a U. M. F. since then however the law has fallen short of its author's intent in part because presidents found ways to work around it and also because Congress has shown itself willing to follow the president's lead in matters of foreign conflict there's a new war this morning in the Persian Gulf a rock turns to blood shed to settle its oil price dispute with quite a different level of difficulty arose after Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein invaded his neighbor country of Kuwait in nineteen ninety this is the seventh week of operation desert shield and now they're about a hundred fifty thousand American military in the region and the number is growing every day president George H. W. bush deployed hundreds of thousands of US troops to the Persian Gulf region before Congress had taken a vote to authorize I know what it's like to have fallen comrades and see young kids die in battle and it's only the president it should be asked to make the decision Congress did authorize that use of force by relatively narrow margins in January of nineteen ninety one and the first Persian Gulf War began just days later since then we have seen presidents outmaneuver Congress again and again president Bill Clinton in the Balkans and later president Obama battling ISIS in Iraq and Syria president George W. bush called for two authorizations for the use of military force the first just days after the terror attacks of September eleventh two thousand one I was immediately approved military action against terrorists wherever they might be and bush soon send forces to Afghanistan good afternoon on my orders the United States military has begun strikes against al Qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan the following year Congress debated and approved another authorization this one focusing on a rock the debate was emotional but in the end the vote empowering President Bush to go to war with Iraq was larger than the vote eleven years ago authorizing his father to take on Saddam Hussein one or both of these measures has been cited to justify it literally thousands of drone strikes and other military actions against those the US has labeled terrorists ever since it appears the US military has launched a missile strike in a rock including the one that killed Iranian commander customs money this month a revered Ronnie in general and one of the country's most powerful military leaders is considered by the you asked to be a terrorist president trump has often describe bush's two thousand three invasion and occupation of Iraq as quote the worst single mistake on quote in the history of US foreign policy but President Bush can at least argue he submitted his request to Congress before his invasion of Iraq began trump has yet to seek congressional approval for any of his actions in the Middle East very very nearly three thousand additional American troops have been ordered to the Middle East tonight at midnight and in the latest instance in the did not even inform congressional leaders of his plans other than via Twitter he said some of his opponents among the leaders in Congress could not be trusted with the information in that atmosphere of mutual distrust it is hard to see how the founding fathers ideal of shared powers could succeed in war making or any other aspect of national
Missile Strike Damage Appears Limited, but Iran May Not Be Done
"Iran retaliates for the U. S. airstrike that killed its top general firing a barrage of missiles overnight at a rocky bases housing U. S. troops Iran's supreme leader told a chanting crowd the attacks or a slap on the face of America president trump later tweeted that all is well there have been no reports of casualties but damage assessments are still under way Iran says fifteen missiles were fired from its territory to bases were struck at Alice side and B. L. Hussein but not as a professor of International Studies at Indiana University the intensity of the attacks seem lower than had been feared which is good news in terms of the escalation CBS news military analyst my client this could be more less a show of force this could be more or less them trying to show that they can do this trying to show their people they want to respond to this but knowing full well that if they don't hit anything on the other end that the Americans probably won't retaliate Iraq says Iran notified it when the attacks began in Tehran said they would be limited all eyes this morning will be on the White House for president trump's
US forces on high alert for possible Iranian drone attacks, and intelligence shows Iran moving military equipment
"Into ram thirty five people are dead according to C. N. N. from a stampede in crowds gathered to honor the passing of general Qasim so low money a rand Supreme leaders are vowing retaliation and death for Americans following the drone strike that killed so the money Iran's foreign minister you speaking much more diplomatically Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif in an interview with CNN not talking all that tough about the United States their days in our region our number not because it anyway you take any action against them because they are not welcome all three have to point to is the Iraqi parliament's vote to tell American and coalition forces to leave Iraq it's no secret Iran would like that as it is gained influence over its neighbor politically but the killing of Qasim's only money threatens to push Iraq but the civil war like sectarian fighting which the U.

The Current Situation In Iran: How Did We Get Here?
"Get to the terrifying news of the day President Trump essentially started a war with Iran when he ordered the assassination of Iranian major general. Qassem Soleimani who was the second most powerful figure in the Iranian government in response. What's around has vowed to retaliate against the United States in? US forces serving abroad. They've announced they'll be restarting their nuclear program. The Iraqi parliament voted to expel all US. US troops from Iraq and we've been forced to suspend our operations against Isis in Iraq. A meanwhile trump has responded by sending another three thousand five hundred troops to the Middle East and tweeting that if Iran retaliates quote we have targeted fifty two around the incites representing the fifty two American hostages taken by Iran many years ago some at a very very high level and important to Iran in the Iranian culture in those targets in Iran itself will be hit very fast and very hard targeting cultural sites is in fact an internationally internationally recognized war crime so lots to unpack here guys. Tommy let's start at the beginning. What do we know about so far why this happened? Y did trump make this decision. Well it depends on who you believe. Okay The Washington Post reported that Mike pompeo has been pushing trump to do this for many many months. And you know back in the day there were a bunch of senior officials in the trump administration like Jim Madison Rex. Tillerson the secretary of State. who were cautioning less caustic line on didn't want him to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal but over time all these reasonable got pushed out the right-wing hardliners are in in. And so here. We are now the stated reason that the trump administration did this is. They said that there was an imminent threat from Qasim Sumani from Shia militia groups in Iraq. That we're going to attack and kill. US forces Everyone who has seen that intelligence so far people quoted in newspapers people. I've talked to you said that that that does not hold water They've seen nothing that indicates there was some imminent threat. which would justify this strike legally or you know rationally so it just seems like something that a bunch of nuts wanted to do and it sounds like the sort of would immediately precipitated? The decision was the fact that there had been There was an attack that killed an American contractor in Iraq. Right this is the problem. Their explanation is all over the place. They one of these militia groups K. H. A. Shia militia group in Iraq killed a US contractor and wound servicemembers Kirk in response to that the US military hit a couple of sites associated with cage training sites weapons depots etcetera. You'd think that response was to killing. US contractor but then they went in killed Qassem Sumani and the justification for that was an an alleged imminent threat of another attack but even in the way pump goes on television lies obviously but even in the way. He's lying to be admitting that that's not totally true. Because they he's he said something along the lines of He was in the process of Planning attacks against American interests in two things about that one. That seems seems to have been a good part of his job for the better part of seconds. And the second part of that is He's not the actual. He's not pulling the trigger. He's wearing a suicide vest right. He's he's he's just a he's involved in the chain of command and one other part of this. No one has been able to answer at all is how does killing This figure prevent those attacks. Why aren't those? It was a tax more likely than not less likely to happen. Now that this person is it also seemed like there was reporting in the New York Times in Washington Post as well that in retaliation for the contractor you're being killed Trump ordered those set of strikes and then there were protests outside our embassy in Iraq. Yep and it said there. Apparently trump was watching those protests and then got really mad and decide that he wanted to do another strike. What is surprise that trump was watching cable TV and it made him angry? Although this time with this sounds like what happened with Mike Pompeo and and Secretary of Defense Esper- flew flew down to mar-a-lago and they pitched trump on a menu of ideas to further respond and the New York Times reported that on the menu was killing Soleimani money and that that very extreme proposal was only put on there to make the other ones look more reasonable and everyone was shocked when ultimately decided to do it but no one apparently push back. That was the craziest anecdote of all the New York Times that they were like. We'll just put this on as an extra so and and you know in some people may have seen this. But both the Bush administration and the Obama Obama Administration basically passed on this option at times as well because and the reason they did is because they were too concerned both administrations even the administration that took us to war in Iraq were concerned that this would escalate tensions in the Middle East into full blown. War Yeah Before we talk about what a stupid and dangerous move this this was tell me what do you think about the debate over whether it was legally justified whether we call it an assassination. And how much do these debates matter. I mean they matter if you care about international law so from that like it's a complicated case They're sort of like a common sense like lexical. What's in the dictionary definition of assassination? And then there's the definition of assassination which has been banned by the US government under executive orders that date back to like the when we used to give Fidel Castro explosive cigars and attempt to take political figures. You're not supposed to assassinate political figures period. the debate about in so like but Sola money's is a complicated case and that he's like the number two guy in their system but could force The organization he ran is a US designated terrorist organizations. There's no doubt that he helped build this play. This big role role in creating and supporting these militia groups in other malign acts across the globe basically. But there's no formal state of war between the US and Iran so there's no basis ACIS to target him on that level right like during the Iraq war the US targeted Saddam Hussein remember deck of cards the figures that they'd go after right so that the legality of Whether or not it was legal or justify takeouts lemani hinges on this intelligence. None of us can see these at all is about this imminence question got it but I mean I think reasonable people should say this was an assassination so I mentioned some of the consequences that are already playing out. What are some of the potential consequences that worry you the most both in short-term medium-term long-term Blake I worry about Iran on directly targeting forces in Iraq or Jordan or Kuwait or diplomatic posts in Lebanon. Worry about these Shia militia groups Lebanese Lebanon's Hezbollah came out today and said that their targets are going to be. US military personnel and they're not going to target civilians so when the head of Hezbollah sounds more reasonable than the present united United States on twitter. That's telling you something There's also these militia groups that might just sort of pay fealty to the money and not coordinate their actions with The Iranians and take action that way just because they're pissed and then there's also the fact that we had to stop the counter isis operations at a time when Isis has has had a bit of a resurgence because of our pull out from serious. There's a lot of ways this can manifest. How serious do you think the concerns are about cyber attacks against the United States or potentially a terrorist attack against the homeland? It's hard to know it's hard to know. I mean you look at what they've done what they set already about their nuclear program. They announced that they're no longer going to who abide by the enrichment restrictions in the JCP away in the Iran deal. But they said they're gonNA continue to Work with the IRA and allow them access test to inspect sites and things. So like in that instance if you're looking at that as a signal there sort of like tiptoeing out of the Iran deal. They're not like immediately announcing that they're enriching ninety eighty percent create a bomb so it seems like there's sort of an incremental response not some big blockbuster thing it seems that there's some F partout seem reasonable to international community to try a seem as though they are the victims in this absolutely. I think you're right well it we mentioned this yet but it does seem like the inciting incident for this entire crisis is trump ripping ripping up the Iran. Deal back in two thousand eighteen. Yes I mean I thought Ben Ben Rhodes on our pod. Friday walked through the timeline from the Iran. Trumping out of the Iran deal today. And I think it's a very compelling case he also wrote a piece for the Atlantic I mean I think we would be in a stronger position today. If the trump if Iran's nuclear program was being managed by a diplomatic agreement the fact that it's not everything more complicated well and I think an important point here is how you felt about the Iran. Deal in the first place whether it was a good deal or not Once the Iran deal was in place even trump's own Administration his own national security team. warned him not to get out of the deal real people who weren't necessarily fans of the deal the first place at once. We're in the deal. You shouldn't get out of the deal and he fucking did it. Anyway against the advice of most people in his administration and the whole global community in here we are by one of the reasons to non pull out was the fear that it might lead to this crisis. Right you John. Bolton now that he's left administration is very clear that his goal along has been regime. Change right so they pull out of your own nuclear deal where Iran agreed to all these restrictions on their nuclear program in exchange for economic relief from sanctions actions and instead of getting that relief they get more sanctions in an effort to crush their economy and lead to regime change. Of course over time. They're going to start lashing out. It shouldn't surprise anybody. So let's talk about how the administration is responding to all this Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was out on all the Sunday shows when he was asked by. Chuck Todd about the potential for around to retaliate. By killing Americans pompeo said quote. It may be. There is a little noise here in the in term but that America will be safer in the long run later. Donald Trump was asked the same question and and said quote. If it happens it happens. Tommy I know you have some Some strong feelings about pompeo Sunday show appearances because I was texting. You injured it before I melt down. I'm just curious what you guys think would have happened if Susan Rice said there was a little noise in the interim I saying like this those those statements both both from POMPEII. Oh and then trump saying if it happens it happens like this. President Obama would've been impeached within a day for saying that. I can't even believe there's there's such a there's such a glibness to it at but it is also it is. They're kind of whatever they're they're sort of cost playing as tough tough guys and so for them. They're they're trying to go out there
"This is it our last episode of Twenty Nineteen and what a year it's been you know the stock market up like twenty seven percent or so here still twelve trillion of negative yielding bonds in the world. US House representatives is trying to impeach the president. It would only be the third time in our history and I mean it's been a little crazy hundred under twenty thousand Dollar Bananas This guy that we talked about last time Hussein by by it all by it. There's no such thing as riskin can stocks. It's getting a little weird great here and stocks a little weird overall now. It would be sort of typical to to do a look back at two thousand nineteen right the typical thing. I don't want to take the typical look back at the markets. Anybody can look back to what happened in various price movements and markets markets and. Make up a reason. Why tell you what it means? But you know it's all it's all backward-looking we know where we are. I mean I've certainly talked about it to death you know. And it's a kind of a typical mostly useless sort of an exercise. Although there are a few sort of annual looks back that that are kind of valuable to me one by a guy named Dave column who you can find on twitter at Dave Columcille L. L. U. M. and he. He publishes a nice look back. So you know go read his look back and just leave it at that. And then there will be a Zillion more looks forward to twenty twenty and it's all kind of useless exercise because what happened happened. What's going to happen? Nobody knows so. What should we do instead? Well this week I will look back but I'll look back at all the non investment topics. We looked at this year which we got a lot of great feedback on. I have to say people really early enjoyed this stuff because all of that stuff is probably much more timeless it can help you not only become a better investor but also become. I'm a better person. Hopefully a happier person and yes you know. Hopefully a wealthier were to write. We spoke with a lot of guests who dealt with a lot of different sort sort of general life wisdom topics and how fitting the first one of two thousand nineteen was Shane Parrish from the Farnam Street website. Eight who we spoke with during episode eighty four published on January the tenth among other titles. Shane is the wisdom seeker of Farnam. Street read Awebber site. He started anonymously while working for an intelligence agency. We spoke with Shane about a variety of topics. The most important one in my mind being mental mental models the mental. Toolkit we use to understand the world. Shane lists are hundred thirteen mental models on his website. I'd say that makes him an expert on mental models okay and he came out with a book. This year called the great mental models volume one general thinking king concepts. It's the first by a five volume series that they intend to do at Farnam street. I have on my shelf. It's a highly readable resource that deals with nine general thinking sort of mental models. The very first chapter is called. The map is not the territory. That's the first mental model. He discusses losses as the map is not the territory. It's sort of explains itself quite well. Doesn't it the model you have in. Your head is not not reality. And what perfect. What a perfect way? What a perfect I model to start off with in in the book series that he's doing and and I sure wish the folks modeling risk and mortgage securities had taken heed of this back before the financial crisis? Right if they had we might have avoided voided crisis and and other things too. You know like long term capital management. They were modeling. Bond markets in a certain way and they didn't behave that way and they blew the the heck up. Shane says his work is about learning about the world in a multidisciplinary way it's about applied thinking thinking about thinking is is what he told us I highly recommend is book has website his work. It's a great way to learn to think about the world and by all means check out that episode episode the very next episode after that one with Shane. Parrish was episode eighty-five published on January Eighteenth. That's when we interviewed Aaron Edelheit. Aaron is an entrepreneur investor. Who wrote a book called the hard break? The case for a twenty four six lifestyle which advocates taking one day a week off from work email and smartphones to be more productive and healthier more creative and have a more satisfying happy life. I read this book and and I decided that I would not work on Saturdays anymore. When you work at home like I do you get into into this? Rut where you feel guilty if you're not always working every single day of the week because you're working always just a few steps away and it's kind of beckoning to you all the time fine. But that's really unhealthy. So I decided I'd just take one day every week and Saturdays it and I've stuck to it and it's made me not less productive but more war productive. I know that no matter what. I'm always going to honor my need for a hard break for a day of rest once a week. So you know I can really push harder on the other days. I also try not to work past five o'clock but that's harder I get up at five in the morning and tried to work no later than seven so five. IPM's ten hour day. That ought to be enough. If it's not enough maybe I should do something else reliving Aaron talked about his own struggle with being a workaholic which really messed messed up his health. While you're wound up in hospital messed up his relationships he talked about how stressed out he was because his fund was down just five percent in two thousand and three the year the DOT COM bust bottomed out. He also talked about how he started. Buying rental homes after the housing bubble blew up including including one year when he individually bought two thousand times. I mean that's a lot of homes that's like what one five a day or something as ridiculous so yeah work a holic and our conversation just let us into all kinds of areas for example we talked about a phenomenon called the garner effect. Aaron Erin said quote it's from Bloom Garnic. A Soviet psychologist who noticed that waiters could immediately remember unfinished orders but had trouble trouble remembering completed orders. A restaurant and this has been duplicated a number of times and if you think about the modern email and the tasks they're they're always unfinished tasks so this is part of that were of technology of e mail notifications and there's constantly someone to reach out to respond to something to do. And that's why you're always on the phone and that's why it's so exhausting. End Quote when the flip side of that. I have to interject here. A similar effect is discussed in a book. I recommended called how we learn by Benedict Carey and carry notes. That when you're practicing your Violin L.. Enter your peony oil or studying for your test or doing work or whatever you should stop when everything is clicking in your all warmed up not after. You feel like you've done everything you wanted to do. Cut Yourself off to get that side garnic effect of not having finished and it helps you remember and it keeps it alive in your memory. Umbrian much of learning is just remembering so my point is this. I garnered affect our describe is a double edged sword but I think he can manage it to your advantage. Aaron's got a a great story. I strongly encourage you to read all about him in his book. The heartbreak which is one of the few titles. I keep right here on my desk. I've got a bow. Well I don't know eight hundred bucks in the office here now. I think and I've got just like maybe thirty five or so that I keep on the desk at all time at arm's length and the heartbreak is one of them all right so next published episode one Zero Three On may twenty third. It's called how to succeed in the stock market and in life and in this episode I discussed one of the most important of these mental models like recovered in. Shane Parishes episode sewed and and like he covers in his book and it's called Circle of competence. This is what I said. It's called circle of competence. This idea was created by Warren Buffett as a way to help investors stay out of investments. They don't understand now. Imagine a circle with a smaller circle inside of it the bigger outer circle. Well that's what you think. You know the inner circle is what you really no. It's a subset of that bigger thing that you're true circle of competence. That's what you really know. That's what I said on the episode. So circle of competence is a great way to reflect on you what your real strengthened skills and talents are and and what your limits are two right. That's what that circle is. It's a limit around your real talents and strengths. And I've struggled with this my whole life. I used to always always wanted to do more than I could realistically expect to do. And I was always saying. Yeah Yeah let's do it. Let's do more and you know things pile up and they don't work out the way you want. One example of how I've improved on. This is with my my interest in music. I'd love to play everything classical jazz rock blues. Show tune standards. Just everything everything. But I'm really best at classical guitar. That's what I studied in college. I've been doing it for what forty years now over forty years and and and not many people are really very good at it and at this point in my life. I'm playing pretty well and I can play stuff that nobody I know personally. These days could ever hope hoped to play. It's been a long time since hung out with lots of classical guitar player. So I'm sure you know I could quickly change things so that no longer be the best classical guitarist I know but the point is my current circle of musical acquaintances. You know. It's a random enough sample of musical. Humans and none of them are really good classical players so you know that that kind of lets me stand out a little bit and l.. Let's face it you know. Most people play the guitar not like a really good classical player so I feel like it's something I had to keep doing and because Huzzah that I've gotten better at it so I thought you know well right if this thing. Is You know most guitar players. Don't bother with it. That's pretty cool right so I focus on that and wouldn't you know it. It's helped me with those other styles because always cheat a little. I go into the next room. Picking my electric Har- every now and then and play some jazz and stuff stuff. So I can still dabble in those other things primarily because I pay less attention to them and the most attention to the one most suited to to me which also just happens to be the most demanding one technically allowing me to pick up techniques and other disciplines much faster so by giving up those other disciplines as a primary focus.

Gen Strategy on line two. Hey this is actually for you now and we're going to help you figure out away how to buy a house and we're going to give you the best mortgage product and and we're. GonNa do this while you're sitting on a couch watching TV and so that was kind of the goal of of red door we launched in in May of this year congratulations. Thank you thank you and it's been it's been great. The team is is much bigger now. Almost Fourteen fifteen people and the company has just been I think we closed a little over seventy million dollars in mortgages and so yes it's been really really exciting to see the company growing. That's amazing near are you across the US US ernest few specific states like how does the back end race work. Yeah currently we work with almost ten of the top lenders in the country and every one of those lenders is licensed in all fifty states. We are only licensed originated in California today so it's one of the things that have have a mortgage license correct. We mortgage banker out to be selling them. You have to have like an NMLS or something right. That's correct and we're actually sell the mortgages either we originally the mortgages to the lender said the buyer is never sold. Anyone and they're really matters. I mean to me it. Goes you know this whole full circle thing from me studying human human computer interaction. I really care about that experience and they really care that a user privacy not being sold to anybody the idea that I'm going. NSL I use it to someone. It just sounds wrong to me and so we don't do that. We don't even buy leads rating like that. We actually get our consumers all from the realtors and and this is the first time I guess I'll say this publicly but we've been very fortunate we actually just closed at really great partnership with three Max gold in California the number one broker and we'll see broker access to a fifteen hundred agents real estate agents around the state. Uh fifteen thousand real estate transactions a year so this is a really really big. I and we're very excited about a broker goes out any ask the question that they asked you you are you prequalified and their face gets white. Oh well no problem because here you go download this APP. That's exactly right that same problem. No longer exists assists with with red door the moment you are asked that question you download the APP and urine have to have any documents on you. You have to have any of that stuff within sixty seconds issue literally print a pre approval. You can make an offer with that's awesome. Thank you thank you very excited to see that yeah. So the the you said the tilt journey you had mentioned incredible amount of learnings. I mean good stuff that stuff you know. The company didn't end up working so well in the end but like what do you take from that back to this idea. Are there incredible like Oh man. What a great question. I I'll tell you one of the things that have been telling some of my existing investors services. I went from a company. That had the almost the lowest margin on transaction. You're talking about pennies on transaction to a business that has has an incredibly high margin on the transaction we end up making on average from the lender we charge the nothing is for free for the buyer but we make almost almost five to six thousand dollars per transaction so it's going to listen one thing about the economics of the. I always has shit margin. It's like consumer in the second always gets closer to enterprise big margins like learning curve goes. You don't know any better when you're when you're first going. It's so incredible in and you end up one thing. I'm certainly noticing is I'm very sensitive to the economics of the business and making sure that it is an actual business very sensitive to you. They are spending now can have a bigger team fourteen fifteen people but were almost profitable so we're getting tip point yeah so we're getting to a point where we are very comfortable that we can continue running this for control your destiny kind of thing and an enervate on industry in being able to kind of do the things that we. WanNa do without being rushed into can grow at the risk of everything we no. We want to make sure it's it's actually a very sustainable and stable business and they will grow if we think about it the right way out. That's that's awesome so the next question here is you didn't tell didn't make any of your investors rich right but were they excited to invest in you again. Yes so it goes back to kind of the very first thing I said in. This podcast is trust network. I think people almost every one of our prior investors invested in red door a simply because I would like to think that it's because they trust me trust that we got to learn a lot and also we were very fortunate with with our first investors at tilt. We were very selective really and we were able to get a sweeter investors that are they're doing this for for the long run. They're not doing it for only one company. There in the beginning tells didn't really have a lot of proof points either so people investing in the founders and and the thesis is still there and they even more so believe that the founders have learned a lot from that first experience and and both of us you know James and I are doing. I think to not to Brag about myself but I think we're doing a lot of really awesome. Things based on all these learnings that we've had that we got with us from the tilt experience in those investors saw that and they continue to see that so when I told them about what I'm what what I'm doing next. It was interesting actually almost all of them. They learned about me leaving Airbnb so a lot of them. Reach out to me. They saying what's next some of them. They wanted to invest that even knowing what the next thing is which is really incredible as just a testament to kind of silicon valley right like people failure isn't isn't like a negative you've stigma. It's like you learned a ton right in other countries if failure. It's like okay well. There's kind of like something negative around around this person but here it's like no. It's a good thing yeah absolutely it. It's not the thing is there is so many ways we can frame the tilt story and and in many ways it was not the success that we wanted it to be but to be honest is still considered tilt was a success story in crab. It's incredible we. We've helped hoped you know so many people all around the world. We've been able to have incredible teams. We built great relationships with the the employee is the downside preneurs founders ecosystem here in the bay area and outside the bay area. I mean in many ways there was so many successes and and yeah there were definitely you know that the end was now what we hoped toge- I always liked to think of it in a very positive way and because I ended up learning more from from that after the okay so that's two questions about advice we were talking before turn on the microphones yet some some good advice for people early early in early in their careers and then the second one is is there anything that the listeners can do for you that would that would provide value to you to your company to whatever you know your your causes are yeah yeah. No thank you and you know the advice that I almost always repeat and kind of these talks really two things. One is trust a network no matter where you are in your career today if you want to build something or if you WanNa even continue in your job and you want to kind of go up the ranks and so forth. I just realized that in order for you to do that. People need to trust. You and you need to know a lot of people and you need to be authentic about this religious. They're they're not gonNA Trust you. If you try to network and you're not authentic so it's kind of those doers if you unpack him you end up you know you can you can write fifty books on those two words so they're they're simple but they're not easy to deal with that would be kind of my first advice and other advice has realized is that the peak of human existence is relationships and experience and the moments that we have with people we love so understand that there is kind of something something bigger here and realized that just enjoy the journey right there will be ups and downs no matter how big your company is. How successful exist for your? We've all seen it look at the press of anybody. Choose a name and you'll find the press that brings them up and find press that brings him back down and it's just that's life life so just create meaningful connections. Munich moments that make everything else worth it and I think that would would help everybody kind of starting their career. I I wish I learned that very very early on even earlier than then when I when I started but we'll so could have that you can capture forever on on this podcast. Thank you thank you appreciate it and my my ask always from everybody as an entrepreneur entrepeneur and as a product guy is you would love to get everybody's thoughts on on the product download. The APP tried out. There is no impact on your credit score. Either need applaud anything. Just see what you can afford. You never know it's there was a report that says almost fifty four percent of Americans a I don't think that they can afford buying and which is incorrect according to some of the existing mortgage programs that people just simply don't know anything thing about so download the APP. Give us any feedback okay because I will kill. It takes coming on your story. This is all the advice this was. This was awesome awesome. Thank you thank you I really appreciate.

My Day was booked from nine to nine almost meetings with people that are remotely Louis even close to the industry loan officers brokers banks lenders real stages. CEO's of lending company every body to try to understand everything and then the more you learn the more questions you have identified a very big gap in the mortgage industry history that that I started to kind of validate in the market and turned out that looks like we're onto something think pretty big and so we built redord to tackle that very gap to the idea of it really very simple which is there is so many ways you can get a mortgage today and some of these methods are just not accessible to consumers and turns out a lot of these wholesale lenders out there they actually have incredible mortgage products because humor that are sometimes half a percent lower interest.
