Matt Boyle Shares His Predictions for MAGA Success in Congress
"Couple of times already, we've mentioned the midterms of Matt Boyle. Here's my big question for you as somebody who knows the swamp better than anyone else who's been following and writing about the politics here for years and years and years. Exciting. Lots of, I mean, what is it? The president Trump is a what a 150 to 9 record of interest. Some absurd best efforts. Best ever times like a thousand. So exciting. Maga candidates, American first candidates crushing it. But here's my big, so what? Okay, they can win. They can come into the house coming to the Senate going to state legislatures. But without a change in leadership, because Matt Gaetz isn't going to be the Speaker of the House, right? We're not going to have a maga leader of the Senate. So it kind of grinds to a halt often November or can America first with president Trump coming around the corner for 2024. Can maga success be reflected actually in Congress? What's your prediction? I think that it's going to very much be reflected in Congress. And so look, this is a long battle that we've been engaged in. So yes, we shocked the world when president Trump won The White House in 2016. But the Republican Party hadn't fully changed yet. It was starting to happen a little bit, right? Some of these good guys were winning primaries in 2012 and 2020. There's very early. So this is played out over the course of the last several elections since then. So now it's happened faster in the house than it has in the Senate. And that's just because House elections are every two years. Senator elections are every 6 years. But look at the Senate picture. Look at these new guys that are coming in to the U.S. Senate. JD Vance is much different than rob Portman. Okay. Ted bud, much different than Richard burr. Eric Schmidt and Missouri, much different than Roy blunt, who's leaving. So in the same goes across the board around the country. So it's each election you want to move the overton window and move things just a little bit more. The right direction and take as much ground as he can in a little bit more than that. We've been seeing that happen in the house. So yes, as Matt Gaetz is going to be the speaker. No, Matt Gaetz is not going to be the Speaker of the House. The speaker is going to be Kevin McCarthy.
Gavin Newsom Isn't Worried About Trump, He's Worried About Tucker!
"Newsom decided to spend some of his commentary in saying, look, I'm not worried about Trump as much as I'm worried about Tucker Carlson. Play cut 68. I worry about Trump. We're about trumpism. I worry more about Tucker Carlson. I worry about Iran desantis. He's a bully. He threatened the special Olympics in 27 $1 million in fines. Who does that? You guys, I mean, I have it habit is light years ahead and policy and desantis, but desantis is weaponized it. Next level. So yeah, I worry about Trump because, you know, Trump has proven that democracy is now partisan. Which is a remarkable. Could you imagine being in that audience? Wow, that's so profound. Yeah, democracy is partisan. I'll be honest, the more I hear of Gavin Newsom, the more I believe he's totally beatable. And this is interesting. I mean, if Trump runs in 2024, which it looks like it'd be an inevitability that he's going to run in 2024, or if it's desantis or whatever, you look at the average Republican candidate. You take mastriano, you take Carey Lake, you take Blake masters, you take Herschel Walker, you take JD Vance. They are far and way more articulate than Gavin Newsom, why? They have to deal with legitimate questions on a daily basis.
Taking Back Trump's America With Peter Navarro
"With us right now is a great American patriot who is someone is a political dissident and they are treating him as if he is, they want to turn him into a political prisoner. Let me put it that way. And when you start to get into, let's just say the pattern that the Department of Justice has shown where you start to have political prisoners, one after the other Bannon, Navarro, it's a very dangerous precedent. Peter Navarre's new book is taking back Trump's America. Why we lost The White House and how will win it back? Peter Navarro joins us right now. Peter, welcome back. Charlie, yeah. You are the you and pozo and others are really the young guns, the new generation. We're passing the baton to you. I've watched you over the years going back to the beginning of the Trump administration and you were really on fire right now. So I congratulate you and so important because so many of the people in the Trump movement, a little long in the tooth, and you're teaching a whole new generation what it's about. Charlie, my new book, for me, really, is not a book. It's a mission, the title says it all taking back Trump's America. We got to get Trump back in The White House in 2024. But first before we do that, Charlie, we got to focus like a laser beam on taking the gavel out of Pelosi's cold hands because they have weaponized the investigatory powers of Congress in an unconstitutional way. They're out to take Trump down. They're screwing the economy with all their profit $1 trillion fiscal spending, bonanzas. And I'm trying to stay really focused, particularly on the house races, a few of the Senate races like Blake masters and Arizona. Virtual walker in Georgia and JD Vance in Ohio, but you know the mission Charlie and I'm glad to be on the battlefield with you.
Are We Living Through a Simulation?
"Living through a simulation? A simulation that is funded by Silicon Valley billionaires. With an intent to try to destroy the west to try to misrepresent what the maga movement America first movement is all about. When you are overseeing an artificial regime, a potemkin village. A parent's party that is grassroots, that is authentic, that is real. That stands as a huge threat to you. They have no choice but to use leg irons handcuffs and simulation tactics on social media. You see the parents party that is rising up in my personal opinion is gaining steam. I know there was a lot of anxiety out there myself included over the summer about the midterm elections. But I see Democrats starting to tumble the polls. I see Democrats losing steam and Republicans are getting on message. JD Vance was fabulous this weekend with Donald Trump. Oz is within striking distance of socialist Shrek. John fetterman. Herschel Walker gaining huge ground against Raphael Warnock Blake masters in striking distance against Mark Kelly. Adam laxalt looks like he's in a great spot in Nevada, but Adam lacks hole has to win by at least two points because those culinary unions in Clark county, they know how to do highway robbery there. I'll tell you what. And we have some internal leaking, not leaking, that's not the right word. We have some internal crumbs. These are Nancy Pelosi term. Of some people that are saying, hey, Oz is about to overtake fetterman. It's about to flip.
Trump to Hold Rally in Ohio
"Former president Trump will be in Youngstown Ohio on Saturday night. And the 45th president will be speaking at the cavelli center. No. That's named by Sammy cavelli. Who's a friend of mine? And Sammy is a graduate of Warren JFK high school. And former president Trump will be accompanied by JD Vance, who is running against another friend of mine. Another graduate of Warren JFK high school Tim Ryan, but I think JD is going to win. And I've said that, I just don't beat up on my Friends on the air. And that will be a very interesting rally because it is opposite the Ohio State Toledo game. Now, the Ohio State Toledo game starts at 7 and should be over by about 7 15. Not technically over, but CJ Stroud, treva and Henderson. I'm just not too worried about the rocket. God love you rockets. God love you, dude, Toledo.

Keeping an Eye Across Important Election Races
"Herschel Walker according to recent polls and the polls don't mean a lot I got it but every time they're down we hear about it He slightly ahead now in Georgia Eyes and Pennsylvania Quickly closing the gap JD Vance and Ohio neck and neck but slightly ahead Adam lacks all of Nevada slightly ahead And we're keeping an eye on these other states How come you only mention those parts Because I'm not really following every single one I'm not an expert on every single one These are the ones everybody keeps talking about Of course Wisconsin and so forth
Sen. Rick Scott Rebuts McConnell's Pessimism About 'Candidate Quality'
"Joining us now is someone who I believe is a leader. He's led companies led to state of Florida, one of the best states in the country. And he has been calling out Senate Republican leadership for not leading in a rather eloquent op-ed senator Rick Scott from Florida joins us. Senator, welcome back to the program. Thank you for joining us. I'm going to play a piece of tape here that quite honestly infuriated me. And I think it really upset you as well and I'll let you react. Play cut 44 Mitch McConnell. There's probably a greater likelihood of the house flips than the center. Senate races are just different. They're statewide. Quality has a lot to do with the outcome. Senator Scott, why is the leader of the Republican Senate saying that we might not win the Senate? What the heck is going on here? Well, first off, a lot of the Washington crowd, a lot of the Washington crowd, but what they want to do is they want to pick the candidates. The voters pick the candidates and actually if you look at it, we got great candidates. I'm the chairman of the national Republican senatorial committee. We have got great hands around the country. Look at JD Vance. Here's a guy that did a movie about his life and he understands the problems of addiction. I world renowned surgeon and best talk show host in healthcare in the world. You've got Herschel Walker won the high school profile successful business guy. We got a little bit of people. So we got support them.
Flipping the Senate Is Not Just About the Majority Votes
"Please make the point if we flip the Senate not only we win the Senate votes, but we get the Senate committee chairmanships. That's exactly right. I would love to see JD Vance. I would love to see Ron Johnson again. I love to see Josh hawley on committees with subpoena power for the IRS, Anthony Fauci. Now we can have an FBI committee oversight committee in the church and pike equivalent in both the Senate and the House. So you might not like Doctor Oz, I'm not here to tell you he's the greatest person ever. I'm telling you, John fetterman wins in Pennsylvania. Then you're gonna have some guy wearing a sweatshirt mumbling to himself about why we need to let everyone out of prison. That's not prudent, okay? The time to go merciless against Republicans is in primaries. I'm all for that, you guys know that.

Are Republicans Sleepwalking Into the Midterms? Ned Ryun Explains
"Overarching theme of the show, a Republicans, we walking. Into the midterms, are they the ones? That are not actually paying attention to the ground shifting under their feet. Bloomberg has got the story out there. It says Democrats have the momentum, Democrats have energy, these numbers are coalescing. They're saying, hey, look, they're down by double digits. They're down by this. They're done by that. Everyone's down. So Ned Ryan, let me get you in here, and let me get your take on this. Are Republicans doing what they need to do to seal the deal? Are Republicans closing in this election? At this moment, I would argue that they are not doing everything that they could be doing. But I have to tell you, Jack, I mean, this is always happens this psychological warfare starts about 12, 13 weeks out in which you start to see some really funny polls that I don't think really reflect reality and as you start to look at real polls, you understand the trends are not nearly as desperate for Republicans as Democrats and the corporate propagandists would like to make them out. And I point to, for example, JD Vance and Ohio. Tim Ryan was up what 8 points about four weeks ago and what I thought were some funny poll numbers and then today Trafalgar has a poll released that shows JD of 5. You look at the recent generic polls by Rasmussen and Trafalgar. We're up 5. Do I think that we're doing everything necessary though to see legal? Absolutely not. I think there's a lot of ground that needs to be made up over the next 11 weeks from tomorrow to actually make the 2022 midterms all that they can be. And I think Jim banks gave an excellent piece of advice over the weekend in which he just said, if you want to be successful in these midterms, embrace Donald Trump's America first agenda and will be success on November 8th.

TPA COO Tyler Bowyer on the Current State of the Red Wave
"This morning breaking Leonard Leo has received a huge infusion of cash and sort of this corporate transfer. They basically there was the Republican mega donor that just donated his entire company to lend her Leo. So 1.6 billion, hopefully that money will go into this new war chest or what we're talking about, these candidates in winnable races across the country. And Tyler, you've gone through the polling, you've got Trafalgar out there now. You've been on the ground in three states and one week with these rallies with governor desantis. And I really want Tyler if you can walk us through some of the stuff that we're seeing with this polling and then also the fact that we now that that Republicans have this war chest, are they going to be able to use that to get up on the air and to start propagating the air game and the airwaves for all of this. Tyler, what should Republicans be looking at both from an inside standpoint of the party and then outside where the activist when you're one of the people that just write in a freedom and Charlie Kirk dot com? No, Jack, I mean, you and I have seen the energy that exists and then the energy is huge. And that's what we saw at these last three events in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Arizona that the base is they're on point. They're excited to get out and vote. And vote hard against Joe Biden's policies. But for these exciting candidates, I mean, look, Kerry, JD Vance, and Doug mastriano are three examples of this new right concept, right? Which is we have conservatives who are actually willing to get out there and fight. And so you're seeing these polling come out now. And the polls are showing that all three of these guys are within 5 points or they're up even in polls, which is a great sign because the polling isn't taking into account the separation and turnout that we're going to see out of our base versus the Democrat base because
J. D. Vance: 'I Feel Pretty Good About Our Chances in Ohio'
"But now that it's over and you're up against Tim Ryan fake moderate I mean the fakest of moderates He is like Joe Manchin Pardew here Ready to screw America over in a heartbeat You were seeing a lot of these polls out there JD and the Senate race you know yours included some people have said oh we could be in a little bit of trouble I just want you to keep in mind these were the same people who told us Lindsey Graham was in trouble in South Carolina to Jamie Harrison in the last cycle What do you make of the polling Well I think because we are running against a fake moderate we can't take anything for granted Dan So we got a guy who is called police aesthetically racist and yet goes on TV saying that he's the biggest defender of police And his whole campaign shtick has been that he wants the middle class tax cut And he just voted for Joe Biden's middle class tax increase in the inflation reduction act So yes we have an issue and that we have an especially shameless candidate But to directly answer your question I'm skeptical of all the hand wringing that happens in political circles at this time of year You saw it in 2014 You saw it in 2016 It's like every cycle there's this group of Republican consultants who winds about Republican chances in November And again that doesn't mean you can take things for granted But I feel pretty good about our chances Certainly in Ohio I feel great And nationally I feel pretty good We just have to keep on hammering these guys on throwing open the southern border on destroying our economy and on destroying public safety And it's pretty simple Joe Biden's not a good president The Democrats have supported him a 100% of the time And if you want something different if you want to be able to walk down the streets of a big city without being mugged vote for us
Ohio's J.D. Vance Joins Charlie to Share the Latest on His Race
"Back to the program. Hey, Charlie. Thanks for having me, man. How's your race going? Give us the update. Yeah, it's cold good, you know, the good thing is that people want to hire just frustrated with Biden and can remind their frustrated with the fact that these guys have made energy way more expensive than it needs to be. They're frustrated with the fact that they're so radical on every issue to where if you think that we should have a secure southern border in this country than Tim Ryan and Joe Biden basically think that you're a racist. And I always tell people look, we've got a ton of fiddle pouring into our state that's killing a lot of our people. I don't care what they call us. We got to defend that southern border and actually shut it down. But the one thing that he does have going for him is just a ton of money. And so I always tell people, if you want to help us out, go to Judy Vance dot com because the national Democrats, Charlie, had built this incredible national fundraising platform. It's actually in some ways impressive. Of course, part of what's going on is that they have the advantage of the big technology companies. And so if you look at the censorship of a Republican fundraising email, the rate at which it's put into people's spam filters into people's junk box folders and you compare that to democratic fundraising emails. I mean, it's crazy. It's like 80% of Republican emails are getting filtered, maybe 5% of Democrat flutterings, the emails are getting filtered. So what we were really in a fundraising war where the Democrats and aligned with the big tech industry and because of it, we need all the help that we can get. If we get it though, if we're able to tell our story, Charlie, I'm not worried at our about our race at all. And I think we are going to have a red wave because people are fed up.
Why Use July Polls to Determine November Outcomes? Rich Baris Explains
"More broadly here, rich? Can you talk about how silly it is to use July and August polls to determine a November outcome? Yeah, especially with their records. So when public and media university polling, some are polling has not at all been predictive. And I have to say, you know, when it comes to this stuff with JD Vance in Ohio, I was talking with Bloomberg the other day when I was in Dallas. And the reporter was from Bloomberg, I'm from Ohio, Charlie. And he was asking me about polling in that race and in Pennsylvania. And he's like, look, you know, I'm from the honing. I'm from where Tim Ryan is. There is no chance he can win the state of Ohio. I'm wrong here. And I went back and looked and I told him about this. In 2020, you know, we look back and we took Ohio off the table in September. There were still polls showing Biden winning. I remember Ohio. There was a quiet and plus 5 pole, a week before. That's right. And that's The New York Times. New York Times? And quinnipiac line and plus 5 and then one day later, they moved it down to Biden and plus four. Fox News right now is about Biden plus 5 in a state of Ohio. We took it off the table in September because and I tweeted the link to this poll the other day. Our poll was Trump plus 9. It was 49 40. And some of this is just that they don't Trump won by 8. Just so everyone knows. He won Ohio by 8. That's right. Eat almost on the dot.
Amber Athey: Repulicans Made Local Races National
"And I'm just wondering what do you think is going on there Do you think the Democrats have just disconnected Biden from the rest of the party and been like okay this guy just uniquely sucks so bad but because he sucks so bad it's not a reflection on Democrats I mean what do you think is happening there That's part of it but I also think that some Republicans have fallen into the trap set by Democrats to make these races national and you see a lot of campaigning on social media You see a lot of TV ads but what are these campaigns actually doing on the ground Is there any grassroots work going on here And in Ohio I mean JD Vance ran a very Twitter centric campaign in the primary And if it weren't for president Trump's endorsement he would have had a really difficult time moving on to the general So I think there needs to be an attempt when moving into the general to make these races about the people that you're going to be representing and not just about these really national issues because there are a lot of voters to be captured in the center who maybe don't even identify with either party but really care about local issues and Republicans are doing themselves a disservice if they make the race all about the broader landscape when they could be focusing on things that do matter to these smaller segments of voters which can quickly add up in a race like this

"jd" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"Com first guest of the day. Wonderful time and given the big, big things happening across the country tomorrow, Pennsylvania elsewhere is an individual who kind of embodies the new breed of maga America first author entrepreneur JD Vance. Welcome back to America first. Thanks for having me, Seth, good to be with you. Now, you worked in public relations in the Marine Corps. You're an incredibly successful author. Now you're a citizen politician, got to get your take on the deplorable thing didn't work too well for Hillary. You know, Americans took it as a kind of badge of courage, this insult. Now, after 6 months, we find out 6 months of very expensive focus group analysis, they came up with the ultra maga insult that Biden used. Do you think this is going to fair as well as deplorables did? No, I don't said. I mean, look, the big problem here is the Democrats that got to stop insulting the people who they want to vote for them. So common sense, you know, we don't like a lot of Democrat politicians and I don't like a lot of Democrat leaders and the media industrial complex that supports them. But you don't insult people who are, you want their vote. This is something that Hillary Clinton never learned. It's not just the ultra maga thing. Do you remember the vaccine mandate speech that Biden gave probably, I don't know, 8 or 9 months ago so and the way that he talked about the unvaccinated were like basically like they were sewer rats that they were about to enter and experience a winter of death and discontent. It just don't talk about people like that in a constitutional republic, but of course these people don't see themselves as leaders in a constitutional republic. They see themselves as rulers of their subjects and that's the
"jd" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. This is producer Andrew colvert filling in for the one and only Charlie Kirk. But I have a great surprise for you. Even though he can't make the entire show today, we do have him on the line. He is criss-crossing the state of Ohio right now with JD Vance. So without further ado, we've got a lot of show to cover, but I wanted to bring Charlie Kirk himself in right here at the top of the hour. Charlie, welcome to your own show. I'm honored to be a guest on my own show. And thank you, Andrew. And I wanted to call in just for a couple of minutes here. I'm actually on the road. We're about to be in Dublin, Ohio. I'm here with JD Vance and senator Josh hawley. It's the last sprint before. What is actually turning out to be one of the most expensive primary races in our country's history, JD is the FrontRunner here. He's got president Trump's endorsement. And it's been really interesting, you know, barnstorming the state kind of learning where the Republican Party is. And this really is kind of a test for what kind of Republican Party do we want? Do we want to kind of the same old kind of Bush and Cheney Republican Party or do we want to go in a direction of a party that will defend our manufacturing and put tariffs on China and restrict immigration and the people of Ohio are resonating with that message. And so, you know, it's been a long slog. It's been a pretty contested primary, but JD is really pulling away and just for all of our Ohio listeners here. I'm completely and totally enthusiastic. Enthusiastically behind JD and we need people to show up in big numbers
"jd" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"We have I think an exciting guest. His name is JD Vance, and he's sitting right here. JD, welcome. Thanks for having me. I never thought to ask you this. I didn't plan to ask you this, but my first question is, what is JD stand for? I could have looked it up, but I'd rather ask you, not Jack Daniels, James David. James David. The joke, because it was Jack Jack Daniels, but just James David. When did you, well, I want to introduce you semi properly. You're known mostly for having written what has nothing less than a spectacular book a memoir called hillbilly elegy, which was then turned into a movie. Yeah. So not many young people write books about their lives. And certainly not many young people have books that they've written about their lives turned into movies on Netflix. So it's kind of an interesting thing that your life is really public. Nonetheless, I'm sure tons of people in my audience aren't familiar with it. So there's a reason it was a bestseller. And it's not just because you're a good writer. It's because your story, which you did not plot or invent is an amazing story. So for my audience, which would you would you tell my audience, the guts of that story? Yeah, so I guess the summary is, I was raised by my grandparents, and they were working class people, my grandfather worked at a steel mill. And if you back up a little bit, my grandparents grew up in southeast you can talk to a cool country. So the deep poverty you think John F. Kennedy is showing up on the cabins of people who are extremely poor back in the 1960s. That's where they came from. And they moved to southwestern Ohio in the 1950s because that was sort of land of opportunity. And the story of my family sort of mirrors the story of the town that I grew up in, which is relative prosperity in the 50s and 60s and then something sort of started to decline. My mom got into drugs, was not able to take care of me for a long time in my childhood, which is why my grandparents figures so prominently in my life and we were hillbillies. We were hillbilly migrants to southwestern Ohio and my grandmother loved to cuss. She had a lot of guns, and she also had a lot of love and a lot of discipline. And those things were, I think, very important for me being able to live a good life. And so the story is sort of on the one hand, I went on to the Marine Corps. I went to Ohio State. I went to Yale law school. I sort of found myself in a rarefied world that nobody in my family had ever dreamed of. But then on the other hand, it's like, well, what happened to the town that I grew up in? And why is it that places like Middletown were places of opportunity in the 50s? And then by the time that I was a kid in the 1990s, it was like everybody was just saying, get out of this
"jd" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Jd events dot com talk about the vaccine mandates and how people should respond to them. Look what i've called for is basically mass non-compliance because i think if people ignore the order it's impossible to enforce the bite administration can't come after hundreds of thousands of american small and medium-sized businesses. What they can just come after you hundred and so i. I don't even think their constitutional but it's long past time that people start to actually push back in their own individual way. I also want to announce that jd vance has been endorsed by josh. holly That came out this morning. Senator holly has endorsed jd. Vance which is which is terrific. So just talk more generally Jd that if you become senator what what should the federal government be doing here. What should a republican party. That is emboldened due to actually protect their voters against these vaccine. Mandates i think that we have to make us corporations. You'll economic pain if they're going to do it because a big part of the vaccine mandates federal government. It is the big multinational corporations. I think you can even make a good argument at the actions of the big corporations. In olden the biden administration to require these vaccine mandate so. I think we really have to be punitive towards the private corporations or at least the pretend. Private corporations that are basically taking away people's rights the medical autonomy and That's one of the things we have to do. For our voters get a whole host of issues. And what i love about holly's time in the senate is that these shows that you don't always have to as a republican in the need a big business in fact if you always do that you may very often. They can harder middle-class republicans conservatives in american live a good life and that really is the challenges that we are seeing inflation. Go up wages stagnating and i agree senator. Holly has really kind of change the entire way that we do that. We communicate with a lot of these ideas. Can you talk about jd q. Talk j. d. About how major companies actually benefit from this vaccine mandate about how these massive corporations they. They were worried that there might have been another labor pool being created through competition. Which is something you and i appreciate and want to see more of but when you mandate something from the federal government. It's actually a bailout set. These massive corporations they no longer actually have to compete to keep their own labor. Yeah that's exactly right. It gives workers less power. They give out the if you are unvaccinated and you wanna switch jobs from one place to another these vaccine mandates effectively. Make it impossible. What does that do that. Empowers corporations to be able to control their own. Workers control the labor market even more than they already do. And what. I find interesting about the political tactics. The modern list is. They're all about rewarding their friends and punishing their enemies. I think this certainly with the inflation and spending conversation. You're right installation. Mering american workers right now especially those who lived on a fixed income but one of the things they're also doing on the left is with with this tax bill. They're not just cutting taxes on some people in raising taxes on other people they're gonna cut taxes on their friends and raise taxes on normal middle class conservative americans. Because that's what they do. And i worry that the republican party establishment folks austin get caught in this loop of well. What tax cuts not tax increases. Ladies and gentlemen. The democrats are playing totally different game. The one thing we could do response is say well if you want tax increases. Why don't we tax the ford foundation. Why don't we tax the harvard university endowment. If they're going to play the game rewarding their friends and punish enemies. We should return like firing times. I totally agree with that. Some republicans though. Jd still are living in the nineteen eighties where both sides are just gonna kind of harmonize with one another and they might disagree on tax policy but move on. Are you saying that we now have to enter this new chapter of how we do politics in our country where we have to be committed to winning its doctrine of trying to quite honestly save the country and we have to now entertain other means if necessary is that. Is that what you're saying. And can you build out kind of the philosophical basis for that. Yeah that's that's exactly what i'm saying. The basis for this is is pretty simple. Which is that. The democrats have merged public and private power. Republicans are terrified and using any power but democrats are using the private sector and in the public sector. There's just give you one example. I talked to a guy recently in the state of ohio medical doctors successful well-to-do guy was worried about losing his job because he's speaking up at his hospital about gender reassignment therapies for modal therapies clinical castration and even surgeries for children. Republicans have choices. Here we can ignore this and allow a pretend private company the force radical tinder ideology hundred kids and experiment on the process where we can actually use the power given by our constitutional public to the people to push back against this man. I think the answer for what we should do is obvious if we wanna live in a society where children are experimental on and so the question really is. Are we going to have a republican party. That is willing to actually be able to push back against this. Kind of bipartisan corporate oligarchy. And one of the great examples of it. And i don't know you. You could help me unpack the stadium..
"jd" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"JD dot com. I think they own 70% of it. So that's probably been our biggest purchase as well as some tin duo do for the same reason. But if you were to look at what we were doing in those portfolios, we were really swapping them. Out of other names that we think are going to be continue to be in harm's way or certainly under government pressure, like the Alibaba's, for example, which even selling correct Yes. So in terms of the recent crackdowns, Kathy that we've seen does it longer term, generally making more pessimistic or optimistic about investing in Chinese stocks? What's the call here? Your longer term investor. So what's the longer term play here? Well, if you think about what China is doing, they're doing many of the same things our own government and other governments around the world are doing. You know there can most governments are concerned about data privacy. A national security and even even concerned, uh, in some ways about the impact of social media on students and so forth. So, uh, but we just haven't We don't have the kind of central centrally controlled government that can, you know, wipe those those activities and risks. Off the face of the earth as much as possible. That's just not who we are. We do know that China wants to wants to be number one in the world and economically. Certainly in one of the ways they want to do. It is with innovation with technology. They want to bring more of it back into their country. Uh, Certainly the manufacturing side at semiconductors being one of the most important areas in which they're investing. They haven't gotten it right. I've watched them invest in semiconductors since the early nineties, right, Uh Are they brought in a lot of Taiwan semiconductor talent, and I just haven't been able to crack the code Cathy. They don't want to alienate the global investors do they? Or how important is it that global investors stay invested in those Chinese stocks and companies? Well, one of the things we've been learning is, you know, as Chinese, uh citizens have gone out into the rest of the world. They've they've actually come back. Many times when they come to New York City or other places in the world where the infrastructure is in need of an overhaul. They'll come back to go back to their country and say, Hey, we have it pretty good here. I've heard that from a number of younger people, and so I think China has been able to stir up a little bit more of a nationalistic. Hey, we have it. Kind of good here and at the same time, there is a the the risk of social unrest. Um, because of the rich and the not so rich or the outright poor, So they are definitely focused on that. The last thing the biggest risk China would have on its hands, I think is a revolution and it could be around that. I think that's why it's Stepped on this kind of mega cap stock as aggressively as it has, it realized it had just mushroomed. Gotten out of control. Certainly government control and now they're coming back to exert a little control so more pessimistic about China long term or more optimistic. I'm more optimistic. I'm going to turn it around a little bit. I'm not pessimistic about China longer run because I think you know they're very entrepreneurial society. Sure, the government is, um putting more rules and regulations in but I don't think the government wants to stop growth and progress at all. What I will say, though, is I'm a little more optimistic about the United States and other economies. So it's more of a relative sort of thing. The more insular China becomes Actually, the less competitive in many ways, it will be because artificial intelligence sure you can have all kinds of data about your own population. Try Aina or Chinese government. But in order to compete in the world, you know you're going to need information everywhere. And I think governments around the world are a little suspicious. Suspicious of what is happening now in China. What do you think the investment environment will look like in China in five years from now, compared to what we're seeing today and are the because you know investors. Everyone follows what you're doing. So are you positioning for the five years from now? Sure we have a five year investment time horizon. I I think we're consolidating into the few names and these are not in our flagship fund. These are another of our more specialized sense. So we're consolidating our position. So we've taken it down. Continue to take it down. But consolidating more towards with higher positions and names like I described there, uh You know, really focused on here's three tier four groceries, logistics manufacturing in China, so we'll we'll stick with those while we wait and see. You know how the government wants to play this if you think about it. And one of the reasons this may be going on now is, uh, China saw what the Trump administration was like, Uh, and the Biden administration has been just as tough in some ways, but perhaps not as tough as, uh, a more conservative or hawkish and administration. Would have been around Hong Kong. And so we've got the midterm elections in November next year. So this is their window to do what they want to do, because I do believe they're not that they're feeling like this is a little bit of a window. And if the more hawkish administration gets in later then, um You know, they will have one to have done. Whatever it is. That makes sense. Hey. One more question on China are Ben Bain, who follows the SEC sitting down with Gary against the chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission here in the U. S. And he is coming out with the SEC demanding all Chinese firms reveal more about investor risks. Basically, they're looking for transparency in this requirement applies to companies already trading here in the United States. What are your thoughts about this good step. Is it going far enough? I mean, Chinese companies haven't been great on complying with kind of opening up things for the past two decades. What doesn't need to change? Have we been too patient already? I think I think there's been so much opportunity in China from from such a low base. Um, that a lot of investors took more risks when we were at a lower base, and the gross growth was going to be explosives and they were willing to do that. But I do believe with investor feedback. That the SEC is saying Wait a minute. This is more mature economy, transparency is becoming more important. Now the growth growth is not going to cover all sins right? It isn't as explosive anymore and I I actually think it's a very good movie. I don't know if China is going to comply. Which means within, I think it's a three year timeframe right Cos here would have to deal with So that is a risk. And and we are thinking about that as well. All right, got to ask about some other names that you've been buying. Not just Chinese eight ers. I'm going to throw out some number. Some names. Uh, soaring Eagle acquisition. The blank check company, far fetched the online retailer pal into your fighter Sema. Four are some too simple holdings are Dave Wilson highlighted it? A couple of weeks ago. These are names that you've been buying highlight a couple of them and you're thinking. Um, Well, uh, it's a lot. Yes, well, too simple, via which has a It was a speck and it fell to earth and we were able to get a very nice sized position. Even in our flagship fund. We are looking for autonomous plays and Autonomous Trucking holds incredible promise. Uh, we believe that autonomous trucking will be able to deliver freight. Uh Less expensively, then rail does now now, if you think about it, human driven, try truck. Transporting freight by a human driven trucks. Cost 12 cents per ton mile. That's not the way a lot of people measure it, but we think it levels. The playing field rail is four cents per ton miles And we believe autonomous trucks will be three cents per 10 Miles, So we believe that half of the straight in the United States that is delivered by rail today Has an opportunity to shift over to autonomous trucks in the future. It's a huge opportunity. Um, let's see some of the, uh, back names that that, um you have used.
"jd" Discussed on Conscious Millionaire Show ~ Business Coaching and Mentoring 6 Days a Week
"New business my guest today. Jd gersh by. Thank you for joining us again. You've been on the show before we've been good friends for a long time. I'm excited about today when. Jv calls and he invites. i attend. But judy i really appreciate it. Can you just take us through your journey as an entrepreneur. What have been a couple of major pivot points in building your business. I think the the first pivot point happened well into my growth is an entrepreneur. Because i realized i couldn't work for anyone else but myself and i had tried the corporate route and came into the labor market two different times which corresponded to my receipt of two degrees that i earned and there were hiring freezes on both sides. We're in a recession on the second one. So i knew that. If i was going to be successful it would have to be betting on myself to win and and i've done that He inflection points obviously the the primary inflection point was a discovery serendipitous lee so of lincoln. Now i would have come to the site at some point of course in the professional world. But at the time i saw and the time i hung out my shingle the become a linked in specialist or consultant. There were very few people in the world who are making a go at it as a living. So i had wide open space in front of me and i made lincoln my own. I built a brand very quickly. And i've never looked back so that was really the key inflection point for me while i happen to love linked very much but i'm curious. What was it in those early days because you were there before me you know. I've got eleven thousand connections. But i wasn't really big on it at the first part of it. What was it that attracted you and said. Hey this is something. I really want to understand and help other people with. That's an outstanding question. I and i pretty much answer at the way. I answered it back then. There was something about this thing. I don't know what it was. I the way that i'm hardwired. Javy it appealed to me immediately. Both my intellect and my emotions. And when i set out to create my account that night after seeing it at a networking event that day i literally became lincoln consultant on the spot. Because i never shut up about it. And i haven't been visionary with all that much in my life but there was something about this and i felt i was in on it at a time where i could make a go of it. A lot of things had to happen for me to have a career but fortunately they did but I wonder every day at the thing i think. One of the great innovations of modern man the internet and i'm a part of it and i'm centered around the business conversation because that's unique to us as humans. Animals don't have conversations about money. So i figured that i'm in a good place. I've i've developed it. I've grown along with my craft. I've watched his lincoln has matured along. Its own personal. Corporate time. Line and have communicated these changes in admirable and timely fashion to my constituents and here i am in this chair talking to you what you know what i think is amazing and i've certainly been noticing it myself and if you spend a lot of time on linked in in the last six twelve months ago while this is almost like a new platform it's changing so much and that's why i wanted to talk about the changing roles of how you engage in lincoln so let's delve into that. What have been some of the the rule changes that have occurred literally during the pandemic..
"jd" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
"Probably broadcasted on the floor of the new york stock exchange. That's one of our absolute best partners that we've had from day one and so i think what we kind of looked as the team looked at the data was to say that even a pandemic there was really an increase uptake. An interest for after hours viewing and so we start to put different shows my documentary series that we did before the twenty twenty election which was called the pivot counties. We start to put those in the prime time we said. Hey people are really seeing. And honestly i would look at my own social media engagement and see that people would see a rerun of something airing at seven eight nine o'clock even if it's on cheddar and i say even though this aired it may be two o'clock in the afternoon they're seeing that night and i think that was part of what informed decision to say. Let's roll the dice. Let's try something new and let's take the spirit of cheddar content that we've always done decide that has up until now only ended at six o'clock and let's bring to the eight o'clock hour so i want to go back to the to the fact fast the part that i find fascinating that you started in comedy. And then you transitioned from a somewhat more entertaining. Well from what people would think would be a real fun career in comedy writing. Why why politics y news. What was it about comedy that you were that. What giving you what you needed or wanted to keep you satisfied and politics did give you i. I'll be absolutely honest. I i love comedy. I really did. It was never a sense of like. I'm going to give up. I'm not gonna be a comedy writer anymore. The type of comedy claim that i ended up really gravitating towards was daily show cole. Bear reports style comedy was late night. S comedy was the type of comedy that looked at the day's news and knew how to effectively skewer those who are in power and i watched i think a rising generation of a lotta people kind of get their news for good or from bad from that slot on comedy central for so many years and that was sort of the lane of comedy that i was drawn to doing and the pivot moment happened for me around twenty fourteen. Two thousand fifteen. I was just like. I'd always not doing a lot of live theatre shows. I used to do a one man late night. Show on stage at the peoples improv theater in new york and what kind of happened by accident over the years of mijas working on that as as a comedic craft was i had just accidentally kind of mask such a knowledge base of cable news and how it worked and the power players in washington and the basic political story lines and at the time it was dan abrahams who led mediate. Who gave me basically my first big break at this level and said you know you're you're pretty good at just politics stuff like i think you can really be journalist. There's a lot you need to learn. But you've got the chops for it. And he empowered me. And i've been lucky enough to have great mentors every son so i don't necessarily view it as such a big departure from what used to be a lot more closely aligned Then i think some people might otherwise realize well like i said i've said many people politics is politics is show business for ugly people. That's why i ran for congress. A better fit for me. What what. I think you mentioned the daily show and the fact that you're right i think in two thousand and eight or five or six or whenever that john stewart heyday something like fifty sixty percent. I'm making numbers up. So don't use dealt fact shown us these as a fact check but but a huge percentage of young people between the ages of eighteen and twenty four got their news from the daily show. You're absolutely right. I mean there was actual. There is in existence actual research that tells where those people getting their news. Now where's that age group getting their news today. If the daily show is not pulling the same sort of numbers that it used to my my knee jerk reaction tells me in part tiktok. And i really don't think that that's a stretch. I think the amount of time that younger consumers are spending on tiktok is astronomical on their some really really brilliant. I think journalists reporters in the space. Who are leveraging tiktok platform specifically to try and get information out i think a lot of social media platforms are a destination for fun their destination for entertainment and but they're also a destination for education and helping create a more informed citizenry. It just doesn't look the way. It did certainly not generations ago when walter cronkite was on the scene but even just a few short years ago i would argue. People especially younger demographics. Were probably not quite as closely glued to their cell phones even as they were in the heyday of john stewart at the daily show. So i think some of those have shifted. And i'm sure they spread out quite a bit I know there's a lot more entrance in the space. Maybe than there were ten fifteen years ago so You know we get the sense that I think a lot of places where where people are going. So that's what chatter and a lot of other places have tried to do we try and compete in different verticals. But isn't it also a opportunity for entertainment these places social media yes for some education too but it also a breeding ground for misinformation. Also i mean you can't. You cannot clearly tell the story of the israeli palestinian conflict in a in two hundred forty characters on twitter or in a one minute or forty five seconds tiktok video so i mean how much for all the good that it does. How much. how much damage do you think has been done by. People relying on short-form social media for their their daily dose of information. And what's going on one. It's like as well. It's worse than wikipedia because there aren't even censoring it like wikipedia but anybody can say anything they want to say at anytime and get millions of people to believe what they want and they also don't they also even if they are telling the truth they cannot do it in a way that necessarily thoughtful or deliberate right so how much has social media hurt. Also i think it's absolutely a double edged sword. There's no doubt especially for a company. And i know it tends to be the big boogey man but i think it's a good example facebook A company like facebook that trades publicly as part of the shareholder economy needs to bring in revenue and therefore driven by the advertising focus bottom line. of course it's in the financial best interest in. They'll spend it as their fiduciary responsibility to shareholders to create as much content to have advertising dollars. Come in and so facebook. i don't think is is inherently incentivize which owns instagram. I think is a similar position to a lot of these other companies. These companies are not necessarily incentivized to do what we would consider the right thing to self police to to to make sure those barriers are absolutely there. i think there is a component of personal responsibility on the viewer. One thing that we've said. I think a lot of people have said before as you know balance your sources of of news where you're getting your news and kind of what that what that angle of conversation looks like and my years of washington have taught me that. Oftentimes the truth is somewhere in the middle Especially on the most divisive issues of the day. Were it's very loud especially and that has always been at least what i've tried to encourage viewers to do and but you're absolutely right. Though the social media. I think i viewed as a double edged sword. I think there's components of it where it has really helped not just connect people but educate people. But that's spread of information. I think even a platform like twitch having their own issues right now. There's a lot of individuals who believe the big lie are proselytizing at sharing the big lot and a lot of money and doing so because there are people out there who just want to tune into the growing echo. Chambers is maybe my number one concern about the state of news media moving forward. Because i don't see that particular structure being dismantled anytime soon. Is there a way to fix it at all or has or is the first amendment also soared tonight. Sure i mean yeah for sure. I think the first amendment has always been a little bit of a double edged sword like that. I don't see the genie necessarily being put back in the bottle or the toothpaste being into the tube. Now that we've kind of exploited and people have realized. oh yes. I have twenty four hours of consecutive news coverage that completely and unequivocally backs up the bias that i want to hear that is absolutely going to result in and a lot of problems and i think part of that is the fact that you've got a massive percentage the american people who are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt justice. Convinced as i am that joe biden won the election fair square. They are equally convinced that the election was stolen from donald trump. I don't know how that trend reverses.

The shot of the end is the beginning from above at the very beginning where they showed that. I thought that was pretty cool. You know. I have to wonder about those that it's like i mean. How do they actually make it happen right. But then again. I mean if you zoom in on google earth on the nevada desert there are the giant glimpse that people have done in the desert that can really only be seen from like lower atmosphere. So i mean how were those done. So i get it. But that's a lot of white paint to haul around. They stole it from west. The like come to my mind. I'm like okay. Get a premium at this point so like you got like what two hundred pounds. Were getting supplies in your truck. That lake yet. I'm sitting here doing math. So speaking of vehicles.

"See if i say that after i watch mother thing anything all so what was your bad okay. We have ragged on her for a couple of episodes now and i will preface this by saying that it all came out good in the end and i love her as a human being. Go follow evangelista. Christine evangelista seen evangelist on instagram. She's a lovely human being but when sherry ran that horse to death and casually shot in the head. I kinda wanted to do the same thing to her. So this aggressive been. I have been so mad at her character. And eric kane was was talking about the same thing where it's just sherry has been unbearable again. Christine evangelista lovely woman And you know. I like the way that dwight and sherry it ended the show. They you know they came back together. She had her breakdown like it was great but like her in the middle of the episode when she was running that horse to death and she was freaking out about egan. Yeah didn't like it. Nope courses and kids forcing kids on talking dead. When i used to tyler was talking about the horse and how he just did seem right. That was but i will tell you. They will lay down when you don't want them to and they will look dead when you don't want them to. Because i was looking up the hill the other day. And i was like i know that horses just laying there in the sun. I know that horses just fine. I actually follow someone on tiktok. Who has a horse that will lay out near the road in their past year and people will seen that horse yes yet and they've actually put up a sign but people still come up and they're like no.

And then we've got the june john dory teddy story. And then we've got dwight and sherry and i really. I'm not one who's like we should have more episodes of fear and we should deeply explore this one topic in this one episode. That's not mean. Typically but i feel like we would have been better served if this had just been the john dory and june episode. Yeah i can see that. But again i feel like the other storylines that were sort of shoehorned in the middle lake. They weren't deserving of their own episode at they weren't big enough storylines like i'm really glad that they wrapped up..

"So like i was like really. How did i miss that. But of course he didn't even know she was his daughter until she was like five or six right and then he basically was like her awesome. Mom welcomed me into their lives. Yeah yeah that was pretty cool. Yeah and they're they're fairly close. It seems like So i will caution. Everybody that the twitter account under keith carradine is not actually keep carrying. It is a fan account that was abandoned in. Like twenty fifteen. Oh really so other than that. There is no social media for keith. Carradine which really isn't a surprise because one generation and two at the man is busy. So i just wanted to point out a couple of cool things that you probably know. And i'm probably stealing a little thunder. He was in the original broadway production of hair in nineteen sixty nine. Yes and actually. He only went to the audition because he took david carrying to the audition and keith got the rome. I thought this was cool. He was material girl. Madonna's video from nineteen eighty-four. Oh my gosh. That's something that. I did not now feel like i have to go back and look at that video. I don't really know for sure that i'm going to but i feel like i have to so much more likely to listen to levy rose because i haven't really cool little sister who sent me that song and listen to it a lot but your song now. It kind of is adorable. Yeah adorable. I am happy to have been a part of so. I think one of the other reasons why i confused. The carribean brothers is am. They tend to be in a lot of stuff together. Did you read. The keys actually played a younger version of kane. Which was david's character. In the first season of fhu. I did read. That was i thought was really interesting. So one of the places that i know both kerosene dean brothers from is a show that you will find under his Self where he plays himself he they narrate and do stuff like footage for a wild west tech. I've heard of that. I've never watched it. But i've heard of it. Yes so it's one of those shows that's like you find yourself watching on the history channel and like six hours later. Oh my god. I haven't watched mother for fear. The walking dead. Yeah i absolutely loved. There were three seasons of wild west tech. And it's from way back in the early two thousands But both keith. And david played characters and then also you were hosts of the show so There was only twenty five episodes for the three seasons. So it's like a european season. I guess But it's a it's a series documentary all about the technology in the wild west. Of course it's pretty self explanatory for the name but like for some reason. I vividly remember the episode about the innovations that prostitutes were making. I don't know oh my goodness is. Can you say on g. rated biters what innovations the prostitutes were making. Well the when. I specifically remember that like i literally have the picture in my head is basically a unlike muddy lake tent cities They would drape lake a big leather cowhide over the end of their bed. Because the men didn't even take off there so the like the leather cowhide protected their linens from getting all money. Because you know that fine guys dating not just by because there is a lot of right right. Yes oh okay this thing..

"So they're to lay off a bunch of it people when we have a bunch of three letter agencies town investigating a cybersecurity. Yeah that's i mean. I'm not even worried like here's the thing. If they lay us off they have to cash. Everyone's leave out that they lay off and with the amount of believe that people have built up. That is already a huge fiscal liability. The like it. It would be penny wise pound foolish. It's like oh we don't have to pay everyone for like a week. We still argue about the budget. But you have to cash out. Everyone's you know three hundred hours of built up leave. Yeah go ahead. i'll take the month of july off. Thanks i you know. I'm gonna take off at least a month off.

"Was an excellent reference. I am very proud of you. I've been saving okay So our writers have both written for the walking dead universe before nick burner zone. Hope i'm saying his name right. And jacob pinon hope. I'm saying his name right so nick don. I remember coming commenting about him because his picture on. Imdb he looks like such a kid he looks really really really young and he has written for the unbreakable kimmy schmidt. He's written for thirty rock. He's actually done a total of three episodes for fear including this one. Leave what you don't and things to do. And he has served as the staff writer on fourteen episodes of fear the walking dead. So he's done quite a bit of writing for the series jacob. Pinon he has been a staff writer for eight total episodes for fear he's written to this one and damage from the inside and then he also wrote the al thea tapes which i remember now talking about him because i went back and watched some of the tapes and really enjoyed them. Did you go back and watch them at all. I didn't know i maybe i did. They were kind of fun. It's been so long. I think i did because there were some surprising people that showed up in them now. We'll have to go back and watch and see if there was some creepy dude named teddy mattox. Who knows could be although he has been pretty busy in the that grinder. Dumpster lake makes mulch out of his followers that are worthy of being mulch apparently that worthy of being walkers and not just being embalmed walkers which is weird but do you think they're gonna kill everybody with a nuclear submarine. Okay so i think they're gonna kill a lot of people with a nuclear submarine and we are the running total speculation And i'm probably wrong but like my bold prediction would be that. Yes they do. Set off some sort of explosion. I don't know how nuclear it's gonna kill maybe a few of our characters All of the believers any of the Any of genie's crew. That's left and are we gonna wind up underground for a couple of seasons Interesting that would be an interesting road to go down. I wouldn't put it past the two knuckleheads. I wouldn't put it past madison coming back and saving the day. That's really what the title of the next episode is all about yes. Neither of us has watched mother no spoilers about mother. I'm not gonna look at any news that's going to spoil me about mother. Actually i did mother. Oh you did okay. Don't tell me. I haven't watched it yet because i started to watch it last night and sleep thankfully this. Jd the episode jd and the episode. Mother were so completely different. Storylines that it's not hard to not cross them so so i just wanna really apologize to people and i know i keep saying this. But i've been so bad about editing. But i have to. And this is more housewives housekeeping. But we're just freewheeling tonight i am having to fill out disclosures. My attorneys for my divorce. I applied for a new job.

Yeah hey speaking of hulu and speaking of the real housewives. I've had the opportunity to talk to several coworkers about onlyfans this week. And i'm like no really if you don't know what it is. You need to go watch the onlyfans documentary on hulu so seriously. If don't know what the tanning temple is about go watch hail satan. And if you don't know about only fans go watch only fans and listen to the house plans episodes like some of the greatest tv out there truly because the housewives were cool by the way tyler..

"Because I should add you know sometimes when you have critique the the reason why people are not critiquing you well it's maybe they're not your audience. Like when you were talking about your book coach she wasn't. You're the reason why she couldn't be helpful. She wasn't really your audience thought she probably, that's what I'm guessing. Anyway, part of the problem is, it takes a little experimenting in a little experience in, writing yourself to realize wage, Who works good as a critique partner or coach and who wouldn't? I was new. So I was like, oh, a coach great, you know. Yeah, I'm JD before we go. Do you have any advice for new Authors? I would just say to it's it's a lot of people want. Just making sure you're doing it for the right reason. Are you really passionate about writing or do you just want to write a book? Cuz there's a because if you just want to write a book, just write a book. I don't really have advice for that. Just write a book, but if you are a passionate about writing, really try to learn as much as possible. Never stop learning, always tried to better yourself in your writing and get yourself forgiveness too because you're going to get better and better. And you're.
