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

David McCormick: Bob Casey Jr. Stays Quiet on Philadelphia Looting
"Da Larry Krasner. But bob Casey has been a wall and this is also the result, as you know, of a progressive liberal ideology that wants to defund the police, does not support law and order, puts dangerous felons on the street and uh, and hasn't done anything to stop the fentanyl crisis that's killing people in tensile million around the country. And so this is all coming to a head in our urban centers. Philadelphia is just disgraceful to see. I honestly got bob Casey's always a wall. He's a wall on everything. Um, he's not just not a leader, he's really not a senator. And I'll be honest with you, I can't tell which more senator dim with it. is Fetterman or bob Casey. Now bob Casey supported Fetterman even knowing he wasn't up to the job. Bob Casey is down the line, radical Democrat. He poses as a moderate. His father was moderate. a Bob Casey the son is no moderate. But on a matter like this, when cities in Philadelphia, in our cities, all throughout Pennsylvania are united in their objection to this kind of lawlessness and brutality, and these retail stores now leaving these communities, bob Casey's afraid to speak. So I assume you've challenged him or something or saying, Bob, we can't you? hear
Fresh update on "jr" discussed on Mark Levin
"Our governmental institutions just as it dominates our cultural entities from the media to academia from entertainment science seeks to delegitimize and eviscerate the Constitution including the Bill of Rights the Electoral College the Supreme Court separation of powers and so forth which obstructs its ideological designs It abuses the rule of law by targeting its political opponents for harassment investigation and prosecution and in the end it seeks to imprison them On October 30, 2008 when Barack Obama shouted to a crowd about that we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America He was not kidding On May 14, 2008 when Michelle Obama pronounced that we're going to have to change our conversation we're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to have to move into a different place as a nation. She meant it. The Obamas are not alone among Democrat Party apparatchiks and their contempt for the country. In fact In fact, it is the rare top Democrat party politician who regularly praises America and is they're sincere about it. They mostly trash talk the country and smear millions of its people. Examples are too numerous to catalog. But it is a party that is built on the demands and propaganda of revolutionaries, demagogues and malcontents and has a horrifying history of supporting the most contemptible causes including slavery, segregation, the Ku Klux Klan, eugenics and even lynchings. Indeed almost from the start Democrat the Party rejected the principles and values of the American experiment. Today it is the home of another anti -American movement, the American Marxism movement with its various ideological appendages. The Democrat Party ruling class elites and activists are united in this revolution which is swirling all around us. The title of this book, this is from chapter one, declares Democrat Party hates America. Indeed if you want to fundamentally transform something you clearly do not love it or even like it. As I have explained on my radio show time and again if someone says I wish I could fundamentally transform my spouse then you obviously don't love or like your spouse. What if you don't want to fundamentally transform America and love our What family. about that? then Well the ruling class of the Democrat Party will try to destroy you, silence you, dismiss you. That's the way it works. Biden is an autocrat, that's what he is. And autocrats whether they're Marxist fascists or of their own making they want power. I've I've done probably a hundred radio interviews morning, noon and night with the five or six weeks. Fantastic hosts, affiliates. See your satellite, online, certain podcasts, you it. name And I'm grateful to everybody. And as I the say in book and I said in every interview, you must look at the Democrat a party through the lens of power. It hates our country, the Declaration, the The Constitution. It hates free speech. It hates peaceful unless protest it agrees with it. It hates the competition of ideas. It seeks to monopolize the language, thought processes, its beliefs and values in service to its own power. Let and as I say in the book, the it. Is in a different place. As incompetent. As so many are. They don't even recognize the danger. Some do. And some do and then shoot themselves in the temple in the country with them. That's a different story. This book is called Washington. I'm sick and tired of politicians, particularly ones that lie to us and then this book is written for you. I'm one of the few people who spends and has spent his life studying history, ancient history, American history. I can't get enough of it. But there are lessons for us. How many have read 25 books on people who have survived communism? I don't mean interviewed people. I mean read the books. That's many books how I read for this book that I wrote. That issue. This is why so many who have survived the gulags The internment camp that the slaughter and torture not one of them supports Joe Biden. Not one of them supports the Democrat Party. And those who are alive today ask the same question. What's happening to our country? This generation, my generation, and the generation behind right us. We're in a uniquely important position. What's happening in America is not unique. It's happened before in other countries. It's happened in other republics. It's happened in the Middle East. We need to learn from it. So who's going to tell us about it? The politicians aren't going to be able to tell us about it. They're too stupid. Most people in broadcasting, they spend their time doing other things, most of them will live longer than I do. But I feel a responsibility as the second largest syndicated radio show on the face of the earth. For more to use this microphone and to use every platform I have lay out the case between good and evil. To lay out the case for liberty and tyranny. We're running out of time. All that stuff that's been in place the last 48 hours in Washington DC and The democrats their surrogates and in out of government. They don't waste time. They use elective office to destroy elective office. They use the voting system to destroy the voting system. They use their judges and their courts to destroy justice and law. They use their mayorships and their governorships to destroy our cities. They use the teachers unions which are paid and bought for To destroy the relationship between a family and their child. And to brainwash them. They were at odds Bill with the of Rights. They are constantly attacking it. They come up with proposals to destroy free speech. judges Their are issuing gag orders like candy on Halloween against one person, Donald Trump, as they did against Roger Stone, as they did against Paul Manafort, and as they did against Donald Trump. You're living through a soft tyranny, as Alexis de Tocqueville called it. He didn't think it could happen in the United States because he said with all these townships and villages and counties, there's no way under their constitution that they could control these Americans. They could control. Alexis de Tocqueville wrote two volumes, Democracy in America, or two came to the United States twice. He was despised by Marx, who dismissed him as an intellectual lightweight. And yet that's one of the most important books, those two volumes actually, in existence, to describe America. I didn't have Alexis de Tocqueville in mind when I wrote The Democrat Party Hates America. Thanks for your time. But I think it'll be said when I'm gone that it was certainly one of the most important books describing Ibing, the entity that is destroying our country. Thank but while I'm alive and kicking on the I'm book, going to keep pushing the hell out of this book. Otherwise, otherwise there's no point in my existence. There's no point to this radio show. There's no point to my Blaze There's platform. no point to my Fox platform. I'm really not a broadcaster, even though I'm an activist. I'm mission oriented. I believe in everything I say. I don't put a wet ear to the air and want to know who's for Gates, who's against Gates, who's for McCarthy, I don't care. And if people don't agree with me, that's okay. In the end, we all have to live with ourselves, but I'll be damned if I allow the Democrat Party to define itself. A party of bloodlust, of horrific racism and anti -Semitism, endless anti -Americanism, a party of the Marxist movements in this country and every other movement that seeks to destroy our traditions our and customs. Many of them died. Many of them died whose names we don't even know. They're dismissed as racists. Many of the most brilliant authors, philosophers, are dismissed We have millions and millions of people crossing our border, most of whom don't speak our language, most of whom are illiterate in their own language. Well, it's hard to understand a complex document like the Constitution of the United States. If you can't speak your own language, let alone our language. What we have here is the disuniting of America, as Arthur Schlesinger Jr. put it, in the construction of this country. And if we don't start pointing the finger at the entity that's doing this, rather than talking about it in a vacuum or abstractly, then it's over. And I don't want it to be over. We can't surrender. I'll be right back. Mudd, lovin' on
A highlight from Finding Freedom on Bitcoin Island in the Philippines with Marc Mantini
"In El Salvador, they have Bitcoin Beach, and in the Philippines, in this little island, it's called Bitcoin Island, and they've onboarded about 260 merchants right now on the island. Welcome to the Coin Stories podcast, where we get to explore the future of money, business, technology, and Bitcoin's revolutionary promise to boost economic prosperity around the world and mend our broken financial system.

Thanks for joining me, and if you like this type of content and want to see more of it, make sure to hit that like button. All right, it's time for the show. Welcome back, everyone. A couple of weeks ago, I put out a tweet, and I asked for Bitcoiners from around the world to get in touch with me if they want to share their Bitcoin story. I just want to hear from other people about how they got into Bitcoin, why they believe in it, maybe their struggles with fiat, and I got a lot of responses, and I'm really excited to share these stories, starting Mark with Mantini, who is living on Bitcoin Island in the Philippines, has a fascinating backstory. So, Mark, thank you so much for joining me. Hey, Natalie. Thanks so much for having me. It's great chatting with you, and yeah, I'm glad we're able to connect and happy to be here and share my story today. Okay. So, Mark, you're originally from Canada. You learned about Bitcoin in 2016. So just tell me a little bit about your backstory and how you actually heard about Bitcoin. Yeah, for sure. So, like most people, I actually heard about it prior to sort of jumping in, right? So I came across my path maybe in 2014, and I kind of dismissed it, just, you know, busy with life. So I didn't really think too much into it. And then in 2016, my wife, her and her siblings are all sort of computer engineers background, software engineers, network engineers, and it was her brother in Australia who actually told us about this new technology where we can sort of send money back home to the Philippines and Australia where some of her other siblings live at cheaper, faster rates. So at that point right there, I mean, that sold me. At that point, I didn't know anything about the network, difficulty adjustments, having cycles. I didn't know anything about the underlying technology. We just knew we could send it home quicker, faster, instant than Western Union and other remittances that the Philippines typically uses. So once we found out that, I was pretty much sold at that point. Yeah, I mean, millions of people around the world, they're sending money back home to their families and they're spending. I was surprised by how high the fees are with companies like Western Union. So for you, it was like this solves an immediate problem. Exactly. It was a no -brainer really, right? So once we found out that, it was just, that was it. And then it took me another maybe year or so before I really started going down the rabbit hole and understanding the whole underlying technology and everything that comes with it. But at that time, we were just like, we can get it there instant. You know, mom didn't have to take a bus to go get it. They didn't, you know, take their 15%, didn't take three days. So like I said, we were all in just with that alone. And then once we started digging deeper into it, then we just fell down the hole. And then, yeah, so it's been almost seven, eight years now. Wow. Well, so how did you learn about it? Because I think that there is this wide chasm between when you first hear about it, you're skeptical, you maybe dip your toe in, and then going on a Bitcoin standard and moving to Bitcoin island. So what was that process like for you and how did you actually learn about it so that you have total conviction in it? For sure. So once I started to put my mind to like learning about this new technology, obviously started with reading the white paper, right? I think that's where you start understand what it's about, all the underlying technology. And from there, it just started getting into sort of podcasts. Although back then, it wasn't that many podcasts, I guess, it was just as many videos, I could see YouTube videos, anything that came across our path, we were just all over it, basically trying to gather as much information as possible. And then speaking with my wife's brother, they were just kind of helping explain sort of the technology about it from the network standpoint. And then from there, we just started stacking as much as possible. And we really haven't stopped since. And about the Bitcoin standard. Yeah. So the Philippines, we're on an island called Barakay right now. And it's also known as Bitcoin island. So in El Salvador, they have Bitcoin beach. And in the Philippines, in this little island, it's called Bitcoin island. And they've onboarded about 260 merchants right now on the island, accepting Bitcoin. So it's pretty amazing, actually, yeah. What made you decide to move there from Canada? I know that you were really involved in in the meetups in Toronto, you helped out with the first Canadian Bitcoin conference. So what made you leave? You know, really, it's, um, the world is changing. And if you follow anything that's happening with Canada, it's pretty much run by like, a tyrant government right now. And we were personally affected with our jobs. And once that happened, I mean, I'm Generation X, so we don't trust in general, a lot of things. And when that happened to us at work, that was kind of the final tipping point for us. So we went out to the trucker convoy in Ottawa back in early 2022, just to support the whole trucker movement. And it was just a great experience, Natalie, so many great people we met, that we probably wouldn't have met, if that didn't happen. So it was kind of a blessing in disguise, although going through it at the time, obviously, it wasn't a lot of fun. So that was the tipping point for us, right. And then once we heard about Bitcoin island, and all the things they're doing, my wife is originally from there. So we just decided to make a move. So we're just out here right now, basically, on an open ticket, just exploring, having fun, contributing just from a sort of a grassroots level, trying to help out as much as we can with people who are interested in trying to help them out. So, you know, the Philippines remit, I think the fourth largest company that country, excuse me, that remits money back home. So this is just another way to basically help them do it at a cheaper, faster, more efficient rate. So we're just kind of doing our part, like I said, at the grassroots level. And, yeah, we're just gonna be out here and see how it goes and plan to stay for a while and help out as much as we can. Yeah, you know, I actually met a woman from the Philippines here in St. Louis, she's on a work visa. And she was mentioning to me how she sends money back home and the inflation that she's experienced in her country. And I was trying to tell her about Bitcoin, but you know, it's so hard. It's really hard to get people to understand and to trust it, since it's all digital. And a lot of people, when they look at this space from the outside, they feel like they could potentially lose their money. So there's that, you know, initial hurdle. But I want to ask you a little bit more about the Philippines. But first, you know, in terms of Canada and that trucker protest, I think that that was a huge orange pill moment for so many people, including even a presidential candidate here that we have, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., said that that's what made him realize that we really need Bitcoin and Bitcoin freedoms need to be protected. So, I mean, were you surprised that the government today in 20, well, it was 2022, I think at the time, but overreached in that way? And I know your family was personally affected. I mean, lost your jobs because of the decisions that you made. Did you think that that was possible in this day and age? I didn't really think it possible, but I did. If you look at the history of our current prime minister, I mean, his father was prime minister and it's sort of they're cut from the same cloth, right? So it's a good point you mentioned, Natalie, because there was a lot of money donated to the truckers via different methods. And the only method that wasn't confiscated was donations. Bitcoin So all the GoFundMe, all of the other avenues to help out the truckers, they got confiscated by the government, frozen bank accounts. I mean, Natalie, we were talking about single mothers donating 10 bucks, you know, just to help out the truckers getting confiscated. Meanwhile, we already know what's happening. Did you know people who had a and year seven months, eight months now, and people are still going to court for that and people are still trying to fight those in court? And it was really unfortunate. So circle back to your question, was I kind of surprised in this day and age? Not really, not from the current government in Canada, unfortunately. So it's just a really, really sad situation. But we're proud to be a part of the Trucker Convoy supporting. We were there for four or five days. We met some great folks who are still in touch with today.
Fresh update on "jr" discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts
"I'm Dennis Prager. By the way, it's 435 members. I told you Congress. I didn't tell you the House when I said 535. It's 435 members of the House, so that was something I needed to clear up. There's an overriding issue that I need to speak to you about for a moment. I do speak about cultural issues a great deal because the culture makes everything. You can be affluent, have an affluent society, but if you lose your values, it's worthless. It's a statement about how important the values issue is. If we have more and more kids raised without a father, that has tremendous consequences for society. If we have more and more kids thinking that they are the opposite sex because they have other psychological problems, it doesn't matter how affluent the society is. On the other hand, please understand, as I said to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. a week ago when he came to my home and we did a fireside chat, my weekly fireside chat for PragerU, and he, unlike me, does believe in the existential threat of global warming, of climate change. I was actually surprised since he's a big believer in science, and he knows how much scientists lie. He's devoted his life to the lies about vaccines.

Donald Trump Jr.: Media Tried Hiding Hunter Biden's $250k Wire Payment
"Them and just address the timing of this too by the way yeah about a quarter million dollar payment literally sent to Biden's house right go ahead that this can happen again literally by the way if you look at any of the things that came down the first this is the hundred guilty they're this they're that each and every one of the next day trump and the trump environment don't pay attention to the shiny object you know the people that have been screaming uh the everything that trump ever said if trump said merry twitter christmas it on was bigger than Watergate those people are strangely silent that there's wire transfers from the Chinese government with joe biden's home address in there you know magically joe is making millions as a partner of hunter and all these things and the the narrative where's the evidence oh you mean other than the emails the voicemails the text messages the video conferences 30 eye wire witnesses transfers you know and beyond that dan you know it's not like the Chinese they're not like us they don't have a you know diversity equity inclusion program to make sure that they're diversified and they that have good crackhead representation in their portfolio managers when they gave hunter biden billion a dollars they don't do that only we're stupid enough to do that in america right now they don't do that but they do do it if they're buying you which they clearly were and they're not even talking about it and yet this is another anti -trump thing that drops after a bombshell further linking hunter to right the only thing they go after hunter is on the gun charts because it's the one thing that doesn't tie back to the highest office in the land at the highest level of corruption we've seen in our government okay the same people by the way in complaining about bob menendez i mean what hunter and joe did is a hundred times worse and yet right they're strangely silent on it i you know you know if you didn't know exactly what they were doing because they've been doing this now for seven years i could probably say there's some hypocrisy
Fresh update on "jr" discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"Yeah, it was crazy. And it's something that's going to stick with him. I don't know what he does next. He'll go back to 54. But I mean, Chris, that's the other thing I think that was here. I mean, I think if you're him and you go into this fight, moving up two weight classes, taking a risk, of course. But if you also have, he feels the WBO screwed him by stripping him of the title as soon as he walked into the ring. But he did owe this fight to Tim Zou. He took the money and the opportunity, which no one could blame him for doing. But there were some consequences for it. So now he doesn't have the WBO title, but he still has the IVF, WBA and WBC titles. He still says he comfortably makes 154 pounds. So for him, if you had this option, you kind of had nothing, literally nothing to lose here because you're expected to lose this fight. Yet if you lose, you can just go back down and defend at least three of your titles. And with Tim Zou fighting Brian Mendoza in a couple of weeks, he would then just fight the winner to again become the undisputed 154 pound champion. That's a great alternative, a great option to have, a great thing to have in your back pocket. Knowing that if you lose this fight, okay, I still go back down to my real weight class and I'm viewed as the undisputed champion. And if Tim Zou wins, why couldn't they convince their manager to go to Australia to fight him? Why not? I mean, that's where it would make the most money. And he said in the press conference, he said, look, he might not be able to get up for the winner of Mendoza, Tim Zou, because it's not as big a fight as Canelo. He didn't really seem to get up for the Canelo fight, but it would make him a lot of money if Tim Zou beats Brian Mendoza. And that doesn't seem like it's going to be an easy fight now based on how Brian Mendoza has looked over the last year or so. But if Tim Zou, the favorite fighter, wins, then Zou against Charlo was again a big fight. And if they do it in Australia, I mean, Charlo's back in business at 154 pounds with probably that huge chip on his shoulder again because people are criticizing him for the way that he fought against Canelo. A lot of money he could make in Australia, too. That would be like a stadium fight out there and would certainly do bigger business, I think, in the U.S. There just isn't kind of a marketplace, at least a big venue for Charlo Zou, no matter how good a fight that it is. I'd love to see him go on the road and take that fight. That would be a fun experience. One of the other stories, Keith, to come out of Vegas was the future of Showtime Boxing, Showtime Pay-Per-View, obviously the provider for Canelo against Charlo. They've got more Pay-Per-Views coming up, most notably Android against Benavidez. I know I don't want to put you in a tough spot, obviously boxing scene, part of the Paramount umbrella, you know, working underneath all that. But I didn't hear anything to make me feel like the rumors of Showtime's exit from boxing are not true. I listened to all the interviews Steven Espinosa did. He talked about how they do have stuff coming up on the schedule, which is accurate. They are going to put on the Zoo Mendoza fight. They're going to have a couple of Pay-Per-Views, most likely before the end of the year. But, you know, it certainly sounded to me, Keith, like if the exit isn't right there, the exit date isn't right there and known, it's coming for Showtime Boxing. What can you tell us about kind of the future of Showtime Boxing? It's my understanding, Chris, that we have the Mendoza Zoo or Zoo Mendoza fight on October 14th, which is technically a Showtime Championship Boxing show, although it's really just them televising the fight from the main broadcaster in Australia. That is a Showtime Championship Boxing date on the 14th of October. There will then not be another Showtime show, as far as I know, until the Benavidez Android Pay-Per-View fight on November 25th. They're also planning a Showtime Championship Boxing show for December 9th, and I think that will be it for the rest of the year. And then, who knows? I mean, you know, I've been hearing a lot of things internally, externally. It doesn't look like the future of Showtime Boxing is good. You know, it's been a prominent American premium cable provider for boxing over the last five years since its rival HBO went out of the business. They've had a really good run this particular year, and, you know, they've done a lot of good fights over the last five years since HBO got out of boxing as well. But this year, in particular, from a Pay-Per-View standpoint, although the fights haven't unfolded that way in the ring, all the big fights have happened that people wanted to see between Jervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia, Terrence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr. And now, not everyone was clamoring for Canelo or Jamel Charlo, but Canelo is now in the fold for a three-fight deal with PBC, and this was the first fight of that. Things seem to be going about as well as they could have gone in 2023. I'm not sure if the decision hadn't already been made at the top of Paramount Food Chain in terms of the company's future in boxing. And again, like you said, Paramount Global owns BoxingScene.com, and I'm a Paramount Global employee, but I'm certainly not privy to what the people at the tippy-top are discussing in these meetings. So we're all just waiting to find out what actually happens. I would say there's not a lot of optimism right now that it's going to move forward in 2024 the way that it did in 2023, although there is one more year left on Showtime's deal with Premier Boxing Champions.

A highlight from 1410: Bitcoin Will Hit $10,000,000 Per Coin - Binance CEO CZ
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis. And also I'm going to be sharing with you a 48 ,700 Bitcoin price target, pre halving according to a top analyst. Also did you know it was exactly six years ago today, China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time and ever since the Bitcoin price action is up 600 % and the mining hash rate is back at all time highs. Also quitting Max Kaiser, Bukele has restored the human rights to 7 million Salvadorians that have been taken away by murderous runts, the British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story of the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele -nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice preach. Also in today's show, Mt. Gox repayments delayed yet again. Creditors are waiting on Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash and Yen payments until next year in 2024. We'll also be discussing, according to this latest report, Coinbase currently holds 5 % of the entire Bitcoin supply in existence. That's right. While Coinbase holds 25 billion in BTC, the exchange only owns around 200 million in Bitcoin and its wallets. We'll also be discussing the catalyst, which will catapult the Bitcoin price action. According to skybridge capitals, Anthony Scaramucci will also be discussing the latest with the Binance CEO CZ setting the record straight on $250 million loan claims. That's right. The US court had recently denied an inspection plea by the SEC. I'll be breaking down this latest FUD and speaking of CZ, the Binance CEO predicts the Bitcoin price will reach $10 million per coin. In fact, a couple of years back in an interview, he said, if all of the major institutions allocate 1 % Bitcoin, we're going to see 1000 X or more growth of the Bitcoin price. And if you run the math, 1000 times today's price action is 26 to $27 million per BTC. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo what's good crypto fam. This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at crypto news alerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts .net and welcome everyone just joining us. This is podcast episode number 1410. I'm your host JV and today is September 23rd, 2023. So welcome to another sat stacking Saturday. Let's kick it off with our market watch as we do here each and every day, seven days a week. We can see Bitcoin back in the green trading above 26 .6 and we also have ether back in the green trading at roughly $1 ,600. The market cap is sitting at 1 .06 trillion with roughly 17 billion in volume. In the past 24 hours, we've got Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and the ether dominance at 18 .2 % as Bitcoin continues outpacing Ethereum and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, we've got theta lead in the pack up 7 % trading just under 64 cents followed by rocket pool up 4 % trading at $21 .63, followed by chain link up 4 % trading at $7 .18 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, we have WeMix leading this pack up 15%. We have PLS up 8 .2 % and XRD up 11, I mean 7 .4 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 47, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 43 in fear, last week also a 43 and last month a 41 in fear. So there you have it. How many of you have been stacking M -Sats and taking advantage of the recent dip in dollar cost averaging? Let me know. And how many of you are anticipating Bitcoin price action to maybe dip a little further south before packing some new positions? Let me know how you feel with the current status. And also just quick reminder, we're almost at the end of September historically, September is the worst month out of the entire year for the Bitcoin price action, but it's always followed by up tober, which is historically one of the most bullish months for Bitcoin. So we only have another week until we get out of September. So we'll see how this is likely to play out. Let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Bitcoin failed to reclaim 27 ,000, though we came close. It stalled at 26 ,500 as of right now. Meanwhile, the altcoins are in no better shape with minor losses coming from most of the larger cap ones. With Chainlink, the only one with a notable price increase. So last week was expectedly less volatile, aside from the brief spike on Saturday that pushed Bitcoin then to the multi -day peak of 26 ,400. But after failing to continue upwards, Bitcoin retraced at 26 ,000 and spent the rest of the weekend there. Then Monday didn't start all that positively either, but finished the way. Bitcoin went on the offensive and soared above 27 ,000 for the first time in weeks, but then shortly dumped after. But the bulls kept the pressure on and pushed Bitcoin to a new 20 -day peak at 27 ,500 on Tuesday. The next few days were rather calm with Bitcoin maintaining 27 G's, even after the US Fed's decision to stop raising the interest rates. Yet Bitcoin's momentum disappeared by Friday as it fell to 26 ,400. It even tried to bounce off the end of the day, but failed and currently stands at 26 ,500. Its market cap is south of 520 billion, while its dominance over the alts still just inches shy of 49%. So there you have it. And as we mentioned a little earlier, the altcoins, a lot of them are also in the red with the exception of Chainlink, which seems to be outpacing the rest of the major alts. Now for a prediction from Titan of Crypto, here's what he shared on X. Bitcoin 48 ,700 before the halving rocket ship to the moon. You might want to bookmark this one. Fam, never in history the halving occurred without Bitcoin reaching the 78 .6 % Fibonacci retracement level. So first off, first cycle price reached this four months before the halving, and the second cycle it was two months before, and then on the third cycle it was 12 months before. The next halving is now roughly six months away. Bitcoin might reach the 78 .6 % Fibonacci level within this period as it currently lies at 48 ,700, but the million dollar question remains, will this time be different? So as we enter this fourth halving, let me know where you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to hit before we have liftoff. I mean, obviously that would be a bullish scenario setting us up for a perfect price discovery in 2024 post halving. So I cannot wait. I hope the analyst is right. And if you didn't know, it was exactly six years ago. China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time because guess what? You can't ban Bitcoin. You can try. Good luck with that. And ever since the price action on the King Crypto is up 600 % and the mining hash rate continues to hit all time highs. And as you know, hash rate is a good indicator for the strength of the network, meaning the market cap is just north of only $500 billion. And as Max points out here, referring to Bukele, he has restored the human rights of 7 million Salvadorans that have been taken away by murderous runts. The British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story, the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele Nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice. Massive shout out to Najib Bukele and the people of El Salvador. Which country do you feel is likely to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender next? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments below. I feel it's going to be another Latin American country. I'd say a great candidate for that is Argentina, which has hundreds of millions of people. We have Javier Malay, the pro presidential candidate. There is a 70 % chance plus that he is elected as the president. And we already know the likelihood he could make Bitcoin a legal tender, especially being orange -pilled by Max Keiser, who is the senior Bitcoin advisor for President Bukele. As Max has already announced, he can't wait to touch down in Buenos Aires to orange pill Javier Malay. Then we also have Mexico. We have people like Ricardo Salinas, the third richest man in Mexico, very pro Bitcoin, claiming Bitcoin has been his best investment ever because, again, Max orange -pilled him back in 2014. Then we have Brazil and so many other countries that make Bitcoin a potential to become legal tender. And we all know that's going to be a game changer. And that's just another catalyst on top of the Bitcoin halving scheduled in six months in 2024, plus the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. So can you say fireworks lays ahead? Let's go. Now let's discuss the latest more bullish news, meaning Mt. Gox is going to be delaying these payments, which means no crypto is going to be dumped onto the open market anytime soon, which again is good for the hodlers. Check it out. Now we got Nobuaki, the Mt. Gox trustee in charge of the funds owed to the exchange creditors, updated the public on September 21st, two days ago, according to the trustee, because of the lengthy discussions with specific payment providers, he could not make the October 31st deadline. That was the initial deadline, fam. And because of this reason, the repayments will start next year. And so they say, quitting him here. Therefore, with the permission of the Tokyo district court, the rehabilitation trustee changed the deadline of the base repayment, the early lump sum repayment and the intermediate repayment from October 31st, 2023 Japan time to October 31st, 2024 Japan time, respectively. By the letter of the Kobashi details, the Mt. Gox creditors waited nine years for payments. Good Lord. Currently, they're owed one hundred and forty one thousand six hundred and eighty six BTC plus one hundred and forty two thousand eight hundred and forty six Bitcoin cash and sixty nine is that billion yen. Good Lord. I'd love to know what that equates to in dollars anyways, though the delay has been extended. The creditors who have completed their claims might receive the payment by year's end, quoting them again. Rehabilitation creditors who have provided the necessary info to the rehabilitation trustee will see the payments made in a sequence as early as the end of this year, according to the letter. However, this schedule could change. Kobashi also said that due to the high volume of inquiries regarding the process, the rehabilitation team might not respond promptly. Well, that doesn't sound so promising, but I guess it's a good sign that most of this cash is not going to be dumped off any time soon, as there's a lot of FUD that's always circulating. The Mt. Gox, you know, sell off is going to crash the entire market. I think that is very unlikely and is nothing more than FUD. And again, we're gearing up for the most bullish sentiment in the four year cyclical cycle amongst us in twenty twenty four. So versus being in fear, I would be very optimistic about what's to come for the king crypto and the crypto market as a whole. But what are your thoughts, fam? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the largest crypto exchange in the United States. Clearly, it is Coinbase. The CEO is Brian Armstrong. But did you know, according to this latest report, they currently control and own over five percent of the Bitcoin in circulation. That's pretty hefty. And let's break this one down. And how many of you have used the Coinbase crypto exchange before? Let me know in the comments below. Here we go. Blockchain intelligence platform ARKAM recently identified the crypto exchange Coinbase holds almost one million Bitcoin in its wallets like, whoa, the coins are worth more than twenty five billion dollars at the current prices. Now, according to ARKAM, the exchanges holdings amount to almost five percent of all the existing Bitcoin. ARKAM said Coinbase holds a total of nine hundred forty seven thousand seven hundred and fifty five BTC. And at the moment, Bitcoin circulating supply is around nineteen million four hundred ninety three thousand five hundred thirty seven, according to coin info on CoinGecko. And as ARKAM shared here on X, ARKAM now identified twenty five billion of Bitcoin's Coinbase reserves with one million, approximately Bitcoin on chain. This makes Coinbase the largest Bitcoin entity in the world on ARKAM, with almost five percent of all the Bitcoin in existence, almost as much as Satoshi Nakamoto. Crazy, right? Furthermore, ARKAM noted that it has tagged and identified thirty six million Bitcoin deposits and holding addresses used by the exchange. And according to ARKAM, Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around ten thousand BTC. And based on the exchanges financial reports, the intelligence company believes that Coinbase has more Bitcoin than are yet labeled and could not be identified. And while Coinbase holds over twenty five billion worth of Bitcoin in its wallets, the exchange only owns around ten thousand of all the Bitcoin in which it holds, which is roughly two hundred million dollars, according to the recent data. Meanwhile, community members express varying reactions to the news about the amount of Bitcoin on the centralized exchange in which they hold. Some believe it's a sign to withdraw their Bitcoin from the exchanges, warning hodlers not to wait until the exchanges start to halt withdrawals. Others say that since there are legitimate concerns over cold wallets, there is no good way to store your assets. I'd like to chime in real quick. Obviously, if it's not your keys, it's not your coins. So while a custodian such as Coinbase can hold your crypto, you've got to also note that it's not yours. So if something were to happen, hypothetically, like we've seen with FTX and the collapse last year, then not your keys, not your coins, they don't belong to you at the end of the day. So you've got to start to weigh the risk reward with having a custodian such as Coinbase or a centralized exchange hold your coins versus taking the responsibility for yourself and learning how to self custody your own crypto and call storage such as with a Bitcoin cold wallet, such as a treasure. So I just wanted to point that out. There's no right or wrong way to hold your crypto. You've got to do what's in your best interest, of course. So, you know, I mean, just want to keep it real at the end of the day. So check it when it comes to Bitcoin ownership by companies, business intelligence for MicroStrategy still owns most Bitcoin. I believe it's over one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC, to be exact, worth over four billion dollars at the time of this recording, making them the largest publicly traded company to have Bitcoin on their balance sheet. Now, another major company that controls over six hundred thousand BTC is Grayscale in their GBTC product, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which they just recently had a lawsuit against the SEC with the plan to convert their trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF. So considering they already control the underlying asset in the sum of over six hundred thousand BTC makes them a pretty strong contender. Wouldn't you agree? Let me know your thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the Bitcoin price likely to catapult along with the altcoin to coin to SkyBridge Capital, Anthony Scaramucci. Let's break this down. Shout out to the Mooch, SkyBridge Capital founder Scaramucci is detailing how one catalyst could have a bullish impact on Bitcoin, as well as the alt. In an interview with the Wolf of Wall Street, Scott Melker Scaramucci says that a spot Bitcoin ETF could be approved in the first quarter of twenty twenty four, which seems to be a ninety five percent likelihood, according to top ETF analyst at Bloomberg, Eric Balchunes. So according to SkyBridge Capital founder, the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF and the Bitcoin halving, which is expected to occur in April of twenty twenty four, could combine to ignite a crypto bull market. No, it's not. It could combine. It will combine. Just saying. Quitting him here as Wall Street or products on Wall Street are sold, they are not bought. And so there is going to be tens of thousands, if not one hundred thousand plus people at these Wall Street firms selling these products to their traditional investors. So people that are in Bitcoin understand the finite supply of Bitcoin, right? We all know there's a finite limited supply, 21 million, and they understand the nature and the quality the Bitcoin has. This will push Bitcoin up. Of course, it will have a dramatically positive effect on the altcoin market because it will lead to more capital into digital properties so people can think whatever they want. They can think short term about the near term volatility of Bitcoin. But these macro positive factors are overwhelming. And according to Scaramucci, the potential approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF filed by giant asset managers such as BlackRock, who controls over 10 trillion in assets under management and Fidelity, that controls over four and a half trillion in assets under management, can see Bitcoin increasing its market cap by roughly 24 times from the current level. We'll send it. Let's go quoting the Mooch here. It is important that now the largest asset manager in the world who started out with some level of skepticism related to digital assets and Bitcoin is now willing to adopt Bitcoin. I mean, I guess they mean BlackRock is willing to adopt Bitcoin, but even more important than that, they're willing to explain to their clients. I think BlackRock now has 13 trillion dollars in assets under management. So for them, seven trillion for Fidelity. While these numbers are higher than I even imagine, while their clients need exposure to digital property like Bitcoin. And so we have a five hundred billion dollar plus market for Bitcoin. So you and I know gold is at 12 trillion ish, depending on where it's trading. But yes, 12 trillion. There is no reason why Bitcoin couldn't get gold. So there you have it. And to watch this video interview he did with Scott Melker entitled 37000 Bitcoin. Can it skyrocket 35 percent? Check the show notes below the video in the description. And I think we all could agree it's only a matter of time before Bitcoin returns to price discovery mode, virtually meaning entering new all time highs. My personal prediction is sometime in 2024, considering the two biggest catalysts, which we just covered, the Bitcoin halving and Bitcoin ETF approval, which we know is going to be a given, especially considering the SEC is not going to be able to push it back and push back that deadline any longer because, you know, they just they have been pushing it back now for 10 years while they continue to approve futures ETFs, which can allow them to spoof and manipulate the market, which is all by design. At the end of the day, there's not new under the sun and three things cannot be long hidden. The sun, the moon and the truth. But just saying. Anyways, fam, now let's discuss the ongoing fight against CZ, the finance CEO with this 250 million dollar loan. And then I'll be breaking down his 10 million dollar price prediction and in fact sharing a transcription of him claiming that Bitcoin can thousand X from the current price, which would ultimately mean not 10 million, but we're talking twenty six to twenty seven million dollars per coin. Let's break this down. So here we go. First, with the FUD, the Binance CEO, CZ Shangping Zhao had refuted a recent report alleging that he received the 250 million dollar loan from BAM Management, the company that serves as the holding entity for Binance US. Now, how many of you have used Binance US or Binance before as the exchange? Let me know, fam. The development comes amidst Binance's struggles with plunging trading volume as the world's largest crypto exchange faces mounting lawsuits and increased scrutiny, regulatory which seems to all be by design by the SEC and the regulators. Right. The report published by Decrypt September 19th drew its conclusions from court documents associated with the ongoing lawsuit involving Binance and the United States. SEC, according to the news agency's interpretation, the Binance US legal representatives asserted in the documents that BAM Management US Holdings had issued a quarter billion dollar convertible note to CZ back in December. CZ, however, challenged the accuracy of the report when he tweeted the following. The amount of wrong information is just they got the direction wrong. I loaned 250 million dollars to BAM a while back, not the other way around, and have not taken it back. The Binance CEO clarified that the loan arrangement was, in fact, the opposite of what was reported in the post. The exec explained that he had extended a 250 million dollar loan to BAM Management and asserted that he had not yet received the payment. So there's nothing new under the sun. Just more FUD, it seems like, fam. The legal battle has taken a toll on Binance US, which saw a flurry of employee departures. The US SEC alleged that Binance was not cooperating in the ongoing probe and even claimed that BAM refused to make essential witnesses available for deposition. Concerns were also raised on CEFFU, which happens to be a custody service offered by Binance's international arm, Binance Holdings Ltd. The SEC's filing claimed that the platform appeared to be in violation of a previous agreement designed to prevent the transfer of the assets abroad. And despite the scathing attacks by the financial regulator, Binance scored a small win this week. The SEC's motion to approve an inspection into Binance US was denied by the USDC District Judge, Zia Farokhia. So there you have it. I mean, the ongoing FUD will more than likely continue, as obviously Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world and regulators seem to have a problem with them and want to go after them for whatever apparent reason. So, like I said, hopefully in the end, you know, truth is revealed and the real story versus all the FUD and, you know, the manipulation of the price action and all the shenanigans we continue to witness in the market. And with that being shared, now let's dive into the Binance CEO, CZ and his 10 million dollar price prediction, as well as him predicting that Bitcoin price action could even a thousand X from here, sending the Bitcoin price parabolic to 26 or even 27 million dollars per coin. Let's break this baby down, shall we? Here we go. JV, have you ever heard of him? A crypto YouTube influencer from Crypto News Alerts remembered CZ's prediction. You're damn right I did. The Bitcoin would reach 10 million per coin. JV referred to the statement in a recent video uploaded on YouTube where he analyzes various aspects of the Bitcoin market development. Now, JV looked back at CZ's Bitcoin prediction while analyzing the Bitcoin CEO's recent Twitter comments. And in a Q &A session on July 5th, CZ addressed several issues, including Binance's reaction to the ongoing regulatory scrutiny. He also spoke about the rising interest of institutional investors in crypto currencies, as well as the proposed BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF. CZ made the 10 million dollar price prediction back in 2021. In fact, I have the article already pulled up and I'm going to be reading word for word what he shared. Following MicroStrategy's announcement, allocating Bitcoin for the corporate strategy, CZ based his analysis on the possibility of several corporate companies, major institutions across the world, allocating just one percent of their corporate treasury into Bitcoin. And according to CZ, that would lead to a thousand X growth in the value of BTC. JV highlighted CZ's welcoming approach to institutional investors in the Bitcoin ecosystem, and CZ noted that advantages in traditional finance firms they bring to the crypto industry, despite concerns about their intentions clashing with Bitcoin's decentralized nature. And according to JV, CZ identified two key factors driving Binance's strategy for the next 18 months. They include the upcoming Bitcoin halving event now less than six months out, as well as, you know, we could be seeing a Bitcoin ETF here in the near future. The Bitcoin community expects the next halving to occur in April of 2024. Now quoting CZ word for word from the initial interview he made on Bloomberg Radio predicting a potential 1000 X increase in the Bitcoin price action. So here's what he had to say. Right now, I think only 11 companies again, this is right around the time that MicroStrategy announced putting Bitcoin on its balance sheet. They announced having allocating some talking about Bitcoin, like usually less than one percent of their corporate treasury to Bitcoin. And we think that it is most likely what caused the initial price rise. I think MicroStrategy's Michael Saylor started it first, but there are six hundred and fifty thousand companies in the world, like relatively established companies in the world, and their treasury is huge. Preach. So if all of them talking about these major institutions only allocated just one percent to Bitcoin, we are going to see, I don't know, 1000 X more growth in the Bitcoin price. And if they allocate more than one percent, then it's going to be even bigger. So I think people don't quite get the magnitude of the wave that is about to hit us. Now, let's run that math one more time. Fam, today's price is roughly twenty six thousand five hundred times that by one thousand. He's talking about a twenty six and a half million dollar Bitcoin price action. The potential if they only put one percent of their strategic reserves into Bitcoin, you do the math. If it's five X and five percent, what are we talking? One hundred and twenty million dollar Bitcoin price. Just saying this is coming from CZ, the world's richest man in crypto. So very powerful words indeed. Let's get back to this prediction of what he shared. So the finance CEO estimates that the flagship crypto can go up anywhere from nineteen hundred percent to twenty thousand percent from the current price levels from the time he made the prediction. And he goes on to share with price predictions. It is really, really difficult. I think it can go to, I don't know, one million dollars, ten million dollars. It is very hard to tell. And again, if we literally did a thousand X from today's price, we're talking twenty six and a half million per BTZ. So CZ also reveals that the exchange is onboarding new users as an at an unprecedented sustained rate during the bull run, outpacing its user growth during the twenty seventeen bull run. So again, this was during the twenty twenty one bull run. Here's what he had to share. Just to give people the idea, in twenty seventeen, when Bitcoin hit the peak of about 20 G's, we were seeing three hundred thousand new registered users per day. And that only happened for a couple of days. And that kind of trailed off and became slower. Now we're seeing sustained new user registrations above the peak and sustained like for over two to three months. So could you imagine running the world's largest crypto exchange and having over three hundred thousand new registered users every single day for like 90 days straight? That is insanity. And that's the previous market. I think twenty twenty four is likely going to outpace the previous market as Bitcoin becomes a common household name and as Bitcoin game theory continues in full effect. You have presidential candidates making Bitcoin a big determining factor. We have people like Ron DeSantis, Kennedy Jr., Javier Malay over in Argentina. So naturally, it's just going to create more commotion and positive catalysts for Bitcoin as we move forward into twenty twenty four. So, I mean, fireworks are ahead. Let me know how you feel. We're likely to finish out this year by December of twenty twenty three. Where do you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to be? And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A. And I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode. HODL.
An Excerpt From Arthur Schlesinger Jr.'s Essay 'Disuniting of America'
"The cult of ethnicity exaggerates differences intensifies resentments and antagonisms drives deeper and awful wedges between races and nationalities. The endgame is self pity and self politicization but of course this is the goal now the Democrat Party in their media and their Marxist structures. Schlesinger makes the point that for generations blacks have grown up in an American culture in which they have had significant influence and in which they have made significant contributions. Self Africanization after 300 years in America is play acting. Afrocentricity, he's writing, as expanded by ethnic ideologues implies coraphobia, separatism, emotions of alienization, victimization, paranoia. Most curious and unexpected of all is a black demand for the return of black white segregation. My God was he on point. Schlesinger laments quote that the revival of separation will begin if the black educator Felix Boateng is his way in the earliest grades. The use of standard English is the only language of instruction, he argues, that is Boateng aggravates the process of deculturalization. In other words, you need to deculturalize people so they're not assimilating but it states that they hate their country. He wrote a culturally relevant curriculum for minority children would recognize the home and community dialect they bring to school. So of course, Schlesinger notes, not all black educators share Boateng's view these but days many educators of all races and ethnicities do.
A highlight from Interest Rate Hikes FINISHED?! (Crypto War NOT Over)
"Welcome to Discover Crypto! It is September 20th. It's 11 .30am. How are we all doing? We got Drew and AJ on the ones and twos today, folks. We're going to talk about the Fed. We're going to talk about what are they going to be saying with the interest rate hikes. And also we're going to be talking about Bitcoin and other cryptos. AJ, how are you doing today? I'm doing great, man. Another day in the life. Let's get it. Drew, how are you doing? Oh, just great. You know, can't complain. Well, you can. You can. You complain when you get home. You'd like, you know, just really vent to your two -year -old. Yeah, that's where I do it. Deezy, did you see the tweet that went out yesterday about the show I'm doing with from George from Cryptos R Us? What? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he's with Blockchain Boy and Neutron. Joshua Jay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. So we're all like, it's for crew, like, plus, you know, and basically we're all doing something different. I believe, like, Josh is doing like a news kind of show and Blockchain Boys. I'm not really sure what Blockchain Boys doing, but I know the videos are going to start coming out here pretty soon. We're still like brainstorming my concept, but I have a really good, like, rough idea of what I'm doing. But it's going to be really interesting to see how, like, where this goes. And I'm just fun to excited to do something different, you know? And I'm excited. We got Frankie Candles doing the charts today. I see Frankie getting ready in his neon square. He's in his, like, little neon area. I don't know if, oh, he can hear me. He's showing some recognition and anticipation of what Deezy is going to say next. Yeah, we saw the Donald Trump Jr. tweets. It looks like he got hacked. Also, Rob, you're popping it. Hey, we're going to see you back. Can't wait till you come back. All right, let's just get right into crypto. Marc Kepson's Drew is done. Am I too tall? Am I too tall? Too tall for the camera? Look, I got to stand. I got to do these shows a lot, you know? I take the shoes off. So I shrink, you know? They come in. I'm like 6 '11", and I take the shoes off. Then I drop back down to 6 '3". I got the Tom Cruise lifts. All right, Bitcoin is falling a little bit, folks. We were in the green this morning when I first woke up. Now we are down 0 .6%, and Ethereum is down 1 .3%. But XRP looks pretty good. XRP is up. It is up 0 .8 % on the day so far. Meanwhile, Cardano, I woke up this morning. It was up, but now it's down. It is down 0 .7%. Dogecoin down 1 .3%. TonCoin finally cooling off a little bit for the week here. It is down 1 .2%. Litecoin has taken a little bit of a beating, folks. Litecoin is down 5%. We talked about Litecoin a little bit yesterday on ATB. I highly recommend you check that out after this stream. All right, let's look at the top gainers. Then we're going to look at the top losers. You know, I have a streak of keeping my coins in the losers, but not today, folks. I'm feeling good. In fact, maybe I'll have a coin in the top 10. Who knows? All right, here we have Caspa leading the way. Caspa is just on fire, folks. The people who bought Caspa at $0 .01, $0 .02, looking good. Just put in a higher high too. You got past that last one, yep. All right, we are now above a nickel, and it looks like maybe price discovery mode for a Caspa. XDC is up 4 .3%. Maker is up. Radix is up. Aave is up. I have a coin in the ties. A little Solana. I think maybe I have some Arbitrum. Maybe. I'm not even sure I have to check. Then we have, you know, XRP is up 0 .8%. We got gold. Gold's moving to the upside. The graph moving to the upside, even though Bitcoin and ETH are down. Okay, so it's not all blood in the streets, but hopefully, it's not going to be blood in Deasy's wallet, guys. And again, I promise you, I do not check this ahead of time. I kind of like being surprised. I like discovering it with you. So let's discover cryptos, Deasy's coins in here. I'm looking good today. All right, I don't know how long the streak has been continuing. I don't know when's the last. I think I last held Litecoin in 2021. Never had Thor, Phrax, eCash, or I know Frankie likes to trade Adam. I like to trade Eve. So maybe we'll talk to him about the Adam is falling 4 % here. Litecoin down 5%. Thor chained down 5%. Any of these coins, you know, peak it. Well, if you go at it, I do have two in the top 10. I got two in the top 10. Just, you know, just to make it feel good. But any of these screaming at you here? Yeah, Thor, Litecoin, Phrax. Not surprised really to see. I mean, everything kind of came up yesterday. I'm still kind of sticking to the theory that the pump we're seeing could possibly be a bull trap. I think, you know, when we get into the FOMC news, the pauses that is likely coming is going to be bullish for the sentiment. I'm just still like kind of macro worried based off of the stock market sharks. Actually, the Algorand, you know, down 2 .8%. That one's kind of obviously yelling at me a little bit. I have a theory coming up, but I'm not going to say it right now. But I'm making a video about it, about Algorand. So stay tuned for that. OK, so you're going to create more? I'm going to create more. I create more crypto content every day and some of it's about Algorand. But I like how it's a period. Create more. No exclamation point. Just create. It's more like create more. Oh, OK. Great. More. Great. Great. Yeah. All right. Well, we're going to create some stories here about the feds. What are they doing? I don't know if we've ever had an article from this news organization. ABC. Shout out to Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew here. Fed to decide on a rate hike. Testing optimism about a soft landing as inflation rises again. Upon announcing the Fed Reserve's latest rate hike decision in July, Jerome Powell spoke out a lectern in Washington, DC for a half hour before he dropped a bombshell. The Central Bank staff has abandoned its forecast of a recession. Staff at the Fed, in other words, now expect the Central Bank to achieve a soft landing, an outcome in which the US brings down inflation while avoiding a downturn. Inflation has ticked up for two consecutive months, reversing some of the progress made in the effort to bring price increases down to normal levels. Meanwhile, oil prices have soared, threatening to push inflation even higher. Well, they got like moving ads. Whoa, whoa, what's going on here? Calm down, ABC. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expect the Fed to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged, affording policymakers time to weigh their next move as a rapid series of previous rate hikes take full effect. I was looking at Caleb Franzen's tweets. We're at 99 % on the prediction market unchanged today, right? Have you been looking at the, when is the next one? Is it November? I can pull the calendar. I'm pretty sure it's the end of October. I think it's like maybe on Halloween. Let me double check. Oh, on Halloween is going to be spooky. Okay, Drew, are you going to give out candy this Halloween? Absolutely. You know, but actually I'll be doing candied apples. Okay, I'm going to be giving out pamphlets on inflation to children. Yeah, you know, you could have got Reese's pieces, but blame Jerome Powell. You can take advantage of the time and the season to teach your children about tax. Tax them. Like attacking kids for their pillowcases of candy? Taxing them heavily. Yeah, take 33 % of every Snickers bar they get. That's right. Yeah, that's just the way it is. Why wait? Welcome to America, you know? And yeah, the next FOMC is October 31st, November 1st, so. Okay, okay. October 31st. All right, all right. Halloween, what's Jerome Powell going to dress up as? Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Pat, do you want us to dress up on the channel? I might be willing to dress up in a costume. I might be willing. You know, every - I could break out the green spandex, go old school. You know, every Halloween, AJ disappears and a Mr. Meeseeks just shows up. Okay, I heard existence is pain though. Existence is pain. We're not fumbling around for meaning here, Deezy. All right. Well, I'm fumbling around for this rate of inflation. It eases slightly 6 .7 % despite the oil prices surging. You know, like we said, I think the oil is going to be a leading indicator, so inflation will trickle down from the oil prices. If you want to think about it, it's going to cost more money to get those bananas to drive from point A to point B because they're going to have to spend more in the gas tank. This is going to be - It's just give it a while, let it roll out to the rest of the economy. Namely, food. Oil prices really, really like to impact food prices a couple months down the line. Well, we're looking at the ONS as the Office for National Statistics, and they said the consumer price index measure slowed in the 12 months to August from the 6 .8 figure reported the previous month thanks to food rising at a weaker pace during the month compared to August 22. During the X minute, I have a tweet about Canadian food prices, and I just kind of look at where they've gone over the past 20 years. It is shocking. It is shocking. I used Bard. I was like, this doesn't feel right for the price. I went to a Canadian grocery store, and I went low. I went low. There's expensive eggs and cheap eggs. I typed in the cheap egg price. It was still very scary. All right, well, we have predictions. Jerome Powell's got his ideas. You notice I was thinking about this BlackRock. What is BlackRock thinking about all this? BlackRock and others predict the Fed's next move. What does it mean for Bitcoin though? According to Marilyn Watson, is a BlackRock's head of global fundamental income strategy. The central bank's federal funds target rate will remain roughly the same until the end of the year going through its September, November, and December meetings. For the record, I think the economic data has consistently surprised to the upside, she said. That includes GDP, the unemployment rate, and the labor market. Beware, beware of recession. The analyst has previously argued that Bitcoin's price is macroeconomic determined by conditions, including its four -year cycles, which I am still a firm believer in for this cycle. Might be less of an effect of the previous one, but I'm still a believer in the four -year cycle, going to push Bitcoin to the new high. I do think we'll set in a new all -time high. I don't think we're going to hit a quarter million dollars in two years, but I think we're going to flirt with $100K, which they do not believe are related to the Bitcoin halving. So they're saying the four -year cycle is not related. I don't know what they're saying here. Risk assets go lower in recessions. So I'd expect Bitcoin would not perform well in that environment. It has not seen a real recession in its existence. It was birthed out of a recession, but yeah, hasn't really gone through one from the beginning stages to the end there. Yeah, there's never been a Bitcoin bull run during a phase of quantitative tightening. We've always been quantitatively easing the money supply anytime Bitcoin goes up into the right. And that obviously is what it takes. I think they're kind of leaning into if we're in a recession, and that lines up with the four -year cycle. But just so far, we're three for three with the having idea playing out. And the trend hasn't broken yet, so that's why I always say sticking to November 25 as a benchmark, but that's just a benchmark. It could be behind that. It could be in front of that. We don't have a crystal ball, but we can go off the pattern that we've seen before. All right. Well, speaking of quantitative tightening, we also have calfskin tightening, the tightest calfskin in the entire world. I don't care if you have a baby cow jacket for an extra small on an 800 -pound man, there is no tighter calfskin than the man I'm looking at right now. That is Frankie Candles. Frankie Candles, welcome back. How's it doing? Does it feel good? It feels good. The calfskin is tight, and so is Bitcoin's price action. But yeah, I don't want to waste time here. Let's go ahead and jump right into the charts here. Now, here we are. Now, obviously, I talk about this all the time. I don't typically trade on newsdays like this. It is usually a complete washing machine. Usually the shorts get wrecked, then the longs get wrecked, or the longs get wrecked, and then the shorts get wrecked. So I don't typically trade. Now, I am in a few trades right now. I am in this Bitcoin long right now. I have profits locked in on this trade and my stop loss is at my entry. So kind of how I am playing this today is I'm going to be holding my long. I am long from about $25 ,000 to $50 ,000 just below this range. And again, I have taken profits on that stop loss at break even. And then I am also in a short position from somewhere up here. I am slightly in profit on the short position. So I am long up and now I am in this small short position that is in slight profit. However, this is kind of how I'm playing this today, DZ. Because basically, like I said, I never recommend people trade on these newsdays just because of the complete unpredictable volatility that you're likely to see. Now, the last FOMC meeting, I believe, was on the 25th, 26th of July. I believe someone could correct me if I'm wrong on that. But we actually have seen a few FOMC meetings where we didn't really have too much happen. And I've been telling people that we are likely in that kind of boring accumulation phase of the bear market. A lot of times, if you go back to at least the 2017 or 2018, 2019 bear market, we had that bear market rally. And once we topped off at that point, we kind of just bled out. And for the most part, if you kind of just ignore this panic wick from March of 2020, which was obviously a Black Swan event, we kind of just wiggled sideways. We got that big bear market rally, we topped off, bled out a little bit, and then we just kind of went sideways again with the exception of that panic wick. And I do think we are in somewhat of a similar situation here where the rest of this bear market may not be the most exciting thing ever. But for today, basically how I'm handling this, DZ, is I'm going to be kind of...
A highlight from Shouting Down Charlie
"What am I oh yes last night I was speaking I was actually having a dialogue with Dr. Simone Gold frontline doctors for the Children's Defense Fund or no no it's the Children's Health Defense sorry that is a Robert F Kennedy Jr.'s group and I'm just offering this in passing in case you're ever challenged. If you say that truth is not a left -wing value, it is a liberal value, and it is a conservative value, but it is not a left -wing value, it never has been. Truth does not matter to the left. It matters to liberals, not all but many, and to conservatives, not all but many. At least it's a value in those two groups. So, this I found to be very effective. If the left believed in truth, would they say, men menstruate? That is, I think, the most powerful example you could offer, that truth is a joke, is a farce, is an impediment to leftism. That's it. Just give that example. If you do not say, men menstruate, you are considered by the left to be a hater, a bigot, and anti -science. But every single one of you listening knows it is an enormous lie, men do not menstruate. It is a gigantic… You can't say anything. If you said the earth is flat, it would be equivalent and probably truer because the land you are on now, the floor you are on now, is flat. There are vast numbers of places on earth where the earth is flat, but there is no place on earth where a man menstruates. If your child comes home and says, men give birth, or men menstruate, you know that they have been poisoned to the extent that they regard truth as a farce. It is an irrelevant question. Is it true, irrelevant? Just like, was it irrelevant that it was a lie that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia? It was a lie. It was as enormous as men menstruate. And they got Pulitzer Prizes at the Washington Post and the New York Times for perpetuating that lie, which the Columbia Journalism Review, Columbia is about as woke as you can get, but for some reason, God bless them, Columbia Journalism Review actually was committed to truth and said it wasn't true. It was a terrible time for American journalism. A terrible time for American journalism started very early. The New York Times reporting that there was no famine in Ukraine in 1932. Corrupt, despicable Walter Duranty was basically bribed with room and board and women by Stalin to report lies on behalf of the Soviet government. The New York Times never returned that prize. The Pulitzer Prizes never announced that they have rescinded it. Now they will say, well, it wasn't given for that, but I find that to be as farcical as the original reporting. Charlie Kirk went to Northern Arizona University and the reception is very scary. It is scary. We have young people who have been trained to be like the Soviet Youth League, come some old, brainwashed drones of evil. Well, Charlie Kirk went to speak and they were screaming, F .U., of course, they said the word fascist. Charlie Kirk drowned out by protesters on Arizona college visit, I'll be with Charlie at Arizona State University next week. Next week, if you have a seventh cousin who attends ASU, have them come to our speeches. Next Wednesday night, that's a week from today in Phoenix, Charlie Kirk laughs his mob of smelly overweight. Okay, I'm not going to read that, that's a tweet, we don't need it. F .U. fascist, you fascist. The screaming, I tell you, the screaming, why don't right wing students scream and curse at left wing speakers? Even they when constituted half the campus or even a majority of the campus, did they ever do this? I'm asking a question, they may have, I'm simply not aware of it. It's like, do any adult children who are Republican refuse to speak to a parent because the parent voted Democrat? You certainly have left wing children who don't speak to a parent because the parent voted for a Republican, but it doesn't work in both directions, does it? So again, we will be there next week. Charlie sent me a very long report on this from Mediaite, it's longer than the one from Daily Beast.
A highlight from The Left Is Removing Statues & Erasing Americas History
"It's a real blessing to be surrounded by good people, and there are people who have my back struggling a little bit today. Two dreaded words, dry socket. Anybody who's had a wisdom tooth extraction knows the perils of dry socket. Well, good old dummy me got it and not doing so hot. So we're going to bring in my pal Kevin McCulloch. Kevin and I got to visit on the big Salem, New York, cruise around the island of Manhattan a week or two ago. Kevin, of course, is an accomplished talk show host based in New York City. He's been heard for years on our Christian station and on the news talk station. This is a man of faith, a terrific guy. And Kevin, you're going to help back me up a little bit today. I might be handing off the baton right off the bat. Have you ever had wisdom tooth dry socket problems before? No, I haven't. And just the sound of the words dry socket strike fear into my deepest being. So I feel very badly for you, Mike, and we've got whatever you need from us today. We're here to help. It's every bit as bad as it sounds, and it's not a good thing. It's what you don't want after you have a... I knew it was going too easy. I had the wisdom tooth removed Friday afternoon after the show. Everything was going great. Saturday, I was feeling great, Sunday not so good. And so it happens sometimes. So it's good to have you here with us. And first of all, many, many thanks to the great job you always do when you fill in for us. Of course, I've been listening to you for years, and it must be a fun experience for you because you're sort of transitioning from your own audience and your base into sort of another platform with our show. And I know our listeners have welcomed you with open arms. Well, I have, and Mike, the Mike Gallagher audience continues to be, I think, not only the most informed because of your daily efforts, but they prove to be generous in all of the campaigns that you do. And as I said when I filled in for you the last time, because I work PM Drive, I'm a big Mike Gallagher listener. I listen and actually many times watch your show on the Salem News Channel. And it's just fun to hang out in your sandbox. So thank you for letting me do that. Thank you. And thank you to Jerry Crowley and everybody at Salem Media of New York that allows us to have all the connections to do. It takes a lot of technology to do what we're doing at this very moment, Mike. And if it weren't for them, we wouldn't be able to. You'd be in dry socket hell if we didn't have a better management team. And speaking of Salem News Channel, That Kevin Show has become a big hit on SNC. You're doing a great job with that. And I love the mix. And I was one of your first guests. I was really honored to be on your show. And you've got a great blend of politics and pop culture and lifestyle and all kinds of neat stuff. In fact, speaking of that, let's kick off with some breaking news. Donald Trump Jr.'s account on X, formerly Twitter, was apparently hacked earlier today. I don't know if you've heard this story. There were a series of – well, get this. There were a series of offensive tweets, including one that said, I'm sad to announce my father, Donald Trump, has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024. You know, Kevin, there's such evil out there and there is such sickness and mean -spiritedness and viciousness. And somehow this almost seems par for the course, doesn't it? Well, it's one of those things where if Donald Trump lives this rent -free in the left's heads, just imagine how effective he'll be if he's reelected. I mean, this is – you've got to remember, and I know that you do, Mike, but for people that are listening, particularly cynics, Donald Trump's one of the few presidents that campaigned on a slate of promises and then went and actually did what he promised. If he comes back, he's already making promises about what's going to happen. There's going to be cleaning of the House and the FBI and the DOJ. There's going to be getting rid of the deep state at the Pentagon and places where wokeness has overtaken actual common sense in terms of policy. So of course they're going to play dirty and of course they're going to try to do everything they can. And all I have to do to compare what they think about Donald Trump Jr. is just ask the question, Hunter Biden? Question mark? No kidding. No kidding. Is there any comparison between the two? And you know, speaking of Trump and his promises and his predictions, something has come to fruition in New York City, and you know the city as well as anybody. Now comes news that these goofballs in Manhattan are actually going to consider taking down statues or any commemoration of George Washington, of Christopher Columbus. And I want to go back to 2017. I want to play this for you, Kevin. Check out what Trump said, because when he said it at the time, they condemned him. Oh, how crazy is he? Check this out. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of to them a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name. George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down excuse me, are we going to take down are we going to take down statues to George? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? OK, good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now we're going to take down his statue. So Kevin McCullough, do you remember the backlash? Do you remember the backlash he got when he said that and they mocked him and they said, what a lunatic. And he's a fear monger. And now just look at what's happening in New York City, what he predicted could be coming to fruition. Yeah. And you know, what's particularly sad about that, Mike, it's like if people have a different view of history, so be it. That doesn't mean, number one, that they should set policy for what everybody thinks about history. And certainly I would make an argument that history is made by flawed people. And it's really people that overcome the worst flaws of what they have that really do great things and that we should celebrate the great achievements, not expect every single human being to have been perfect. But beyond all of that, this city's in a mess. We have crime. We've got migrant overpopulation in ways and areas that we can't even begin to deal with. And this is what people want to focus on. I mean, and it is you're talking about a warped mix of priorities for sure. It's upside down. And it's absolutely happening as I mean, I've been following this and I'm in just absolute utter amazement, as you say, New York City dealing with crime, crippled under monumental budget cuts due to the illegal immigration issue that frankly the Democrats created. I mean, you want to be a sanctuary city, be a sanctuary city. And now the City Council's Cultural Affairs Committee is going to hold a public hearing on a measure to remove works of art on city property that depict a person who owned enslaved persons or directly benefited economically from slavery. Well, of course, George Washington's at the top of that list. So Trump was right. These nuts in New York and in other blue cities are going to try to remove the founding fathers from our consciousness because they own slaves. And it's exactly what Trump said back in 2017.
Magi Helena Unpacks the Astounding Astrology of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Right. You're listening to the all -new hair radio morning show, and we are on the line with the amazing Mae -Jai Halina. Good morning, Halina. Good morning. Good morning, Kerry. It's so great to be here today. Yes, awesome. Well, listen, I want to kind of jump right on in when we talk about astrology, and I love the introduction that you gave about understanding astrology. Would you be kind enough just to share one last time, just kind of bring everybody up to speed on what we think of when we say astrology or what we should think of? Okay. Well, the very basics or the basic premise is that the positions of planets in the sky make various mathematical relationships to planets on any particular day. If we sort of had a map of the sky on a day, let's call it your birthday, Kerry. If it was your birthday, there'd be sort of a map of the planets on that day. And then if we were going to look at what's going on in your astrology for today, we would look at the relationships between the planets in the sky today and the planets on the day of your birth. And the type of astrology I do, Kerry, it's the only type of astrology that's actually based on scientific and statistical research. It's not based on belief systems. So our way of interpretation and understanding has been validated or verified by research. Love it, love it. Well, listen, one of the big reasons that we wanted to have you on the Head Radio Morning Show at this time is because we are forever honoring the legacy of the one and only Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And I was hoping that you could take a look at, you know, and kind of, you know, give your ideas on any kind of chart or anything that you wanted to share. What would you like to say today, Alina? Well, I'd love to speak a little bit to Dr. King's incredible astrological birth chart. I mean, when you do look at birth charts from the perspective of scientific astrology, they're very, very clear. But everyone while has gifts in their birth chart, big gifts from God, we all also have some challenges. And not all of us are able to live up to all of our gifts for various reasons. You know, life isn't easy. And what's so amazing to me, one of the many things that's so amazing to me about Dr. King's chart is how beautifully he was able to live up to all of his gifts and face down his challenges. This was a man who did God's work in the world. And he was able to do that through the gifts in his chart and then the personal discipline and the personal honor and the personal integrity that he had as a human being. So when I look at his chart, one of the first things I see is how gifted he was as a speaker, obviously. He was immensely talented, and he had a hunger to communicate his ideas. The way I would express some of this stuff, I would talk about planets rather than talking about zodiac signs, because we don't use zodiac signs in scientific astrology. They just haven't proven to work well enough. But what I'm talking about here with Dr. King's chart, one of the things is I'm going to say a bunch of stuff because it's not going to make a whole lot of sense unless you're a student of astrology, but he's got an amazing iron butterfly of Sun, Saturn, Ixion. Ixion's a planet way out there past Pluto in what's called the Kuiper Belt. And then he's got a Jupiter midpoint and Midas at the fourth corner of this iron butterfly. And people that have complicated and symmetrical geometric shapes in their charts, these are the people that really have the most powerful gifts. And Dr. King's chart is just full of what we call planetary geometry. And you can cherry pick almost anything and see this. You see his dedication to humanity, to all kinds of folks in all kinds of situations. You see his hunger to bring in a better world. And you see that while he was angry, he channeled the anger into trying to actually do things that could work. He channeled the anger into talk of peace and nonviolent protest. I mean, I am so moved by what this man did and what he was able to take, the raw material that God gave him, and the way he was able to use that raw material to make such an incredible contribution to the world.
A highlight from BCB127_AMERICAN HODL: Wisdom For Surviving The Bear
"All of your well -laid plans are going to be put to rest by the Bitcoin market. You know, I was very confident we were going to over 100k, I think a lot of people were. Then we didn't. And then I was equally confident, I was like, well, if the top wasn't as high, then maybe the bottom won't be as low. And then I was like, probably 30k, the bottom would be like 30k. And then it was, it was faster to 16. And that really shook a lot of people out, man. I mean, it was brutal. I knew people personally who were getting faken. Most people were just totally inconsolable. They're addicted to their fear. Fear like gets real close to you and it talks in your ear and it convinces you that it's correct. You've got to just push past that and you just you can't give in to fear. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where Average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance and we talk shit. Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. This is what you have been patiently waiting for. The inevitable, our run in with the legendary American Hodl. We hate to tug him off so obviously, but he was built to hang out on our show. Hodl would be equally comfortable for an 8 a .m. coffee hour at the firehouse as he would be philosophizing with the likes of Breedlove. We hope we evoked both of those extremes. Hodl has been in this game for a long time. He is a proper Bitcoin OG. This gives him the rare perspective of having been in the midst of his third bear market. Even when you have three under your belt, they are not easy. We talk about everything from raising kids to overcoming your fear of being penniless and destitute because you put all your money in Bitcoin. Fear and greed run markets, and if you aren't careful, they can run your life. Understand your psychology. As Socrates said, to know thyself is the beginning of wisdom. We can't argue with Socrates, but we can say that the beginning of wisdom is getting your Bitcoin off of exchanges. The best way to make that happen is by grabbing yourself a cold card Mark 4 and punching your seed keys into a seed plate. We cannot impart how important this is. All of your research, all of your understanding, all of your effort to obtain Bitcoin means absolutely nothing if the exchange you left your Bitcoin on goes belly up and shits the bed. So get those coins off of exchanges and into the most reliable, most secure place possible, the cold card. And if you want to get frisky, check out the new Q1 and its expanded capabilities above and beyond the cold card Mark 4. Before we start, we have some coupon codes to share. If you would like to attend Bitcoin Amsterdam or Bitcoin 2024 in Nashville, get 10 % off tickets to either event with code BCB. Now, relax, enjoy this rip with American hodl. That's a stack of kids, my friend. Four in the litter. How are you holding up? This is only like a few weeks ago, right? It's it's good, man. I love having kids. Kids are the best. I I think parents like to complain about having kids, but like I do with the you know, it's like there's this George Peterson quote, which is like if you weren't going to have kids, like what the fuck would you be doing? That's so special. Like most of us are. Yeah. Yeah. It's not like I'm going to be inventing, you know, a new a new like equation for quantum field theory or something like I'm not doing any of that. So like, yeah, string theory is just a bit above our heads as well, you know? Right, exactly. So hanging out with the kids and, you know, playing Uno or goofing around is like, that's where I'm at. That's my song, right? The other thing you are, but I think of my kids just went back to school. So now I have like full days with nothing to do, but what I want to do. And you start to realize, like, what do people without kids in their thirties and forties do? There's just, oh, yeah, exactly. Yeah. You basically just get drunk in different locations. You're like, yeah, I went to Dublin and I got drunk and then I went to Istanbul and I got drunk and then I went to Rio de Ignar and I got drunk and you're like, okay, that's I didn't get drunk here. I got beer here, you know? Uh, yeah, people, people end up and I don't want to shit in the mouth of, of non parents here right off the bat, but fuck it. Let's do it. Everybody should have kids. It's well worth it. And I think at least based on my circle, most people I see that don't end up having children really, really wish they did. They get into their late thirties, forties and fifties and they realize, oh, I see what this whole thing's about. Um, highly recommend it. Get out there. Fuck everybody. Start fucking, start reproducing. Let's expand the species. Let's get more Bitcoiners. Yeah. Listen, if you don't have a, if you don't have kids, I consider you weak hands, you know, cause there's no one to get a huddle after your debt. So what you only got like max, you know, 40, 50 years of huddling there. All right. Like we need to extend that out. Seven generation thinking like my boy, Marty bent says, you know, I listened to you with, uh, the, your most recent chat with Peter and Peter was spending some time saying like, I love smart huddle. I like the glasses. I like the refined civilized huddle and Josh were like, Josh and I were like, fuck that shit. We want total huddle. If you don't deliver that today, you fucked up. Cause we need you fully unleashed my friend. All right. I mean, I'll do my best. Let's see what I got. Firehouse humor. Yeah. Oh yeah. I think you'd fit right into the firehouse based on some of the stuff I've heard you, uh, spew over the, over the years, I think you'd fit right in, especially coffee hour, eight o 'clock in the morning, just a bunch of degenerates. I don't know if you guys have seen the new Shane Gillis stand up on Netflix, but that's like my barometer for humor. Just like extremely immature playground humor, the way we used to talk to each other, you know, third grade. Yeah, exactly. Those are sort of litmus tests for like how far you can go culturally. You're like, Oh, we weren't allowed to say that 10 years ago. He just went that far in that, in that Netflix special. I guess that's the, that's the tip of the spear for how far we can go. Chappelle broke some boundary. A lot of people have broken boundaries on Netflix in the last, comedy in general has been regressive over the last 10 or 15 years. Like every, so many things have been taboo to say, especially for comedians, which really ruins comedians and only like Dave Chappelle can get away with it and a few others, but comedy has really been shit on in the last 10 years. I think the left went too far and they canceled basically too many people and you can't cancel everybody because then now you just have like half the country that's canceled. Right. And so, you know, all the canceled people, it's not like you killed them. Like they're still alive and they're just like, you know what? I don't give a shit about being canceled. And that's like where everybody's at nowadays. And so I am starting to see, like, I think the, you know, canceled culture has peaked and now we're on the other side of canceled culture. And there's a bunch, bunch of people who basically realize like, if you don't cancel yourself, nobody can really cancel you. You just, you just choose not to give a shit about it. I think it was actually Trump that taught everybody that maneuver. Right. Which is like, you know, whatever, I don't care, whatever you say about me, I don't give a fuck, you know, whatever. Uh, and you know, he's just going to, he's just going to keep going out there and calling you stormy horse face Daniels or whatever. He doesn't keep a shit. And you can be like, you know, you were the worst president ever. He'd be like, that's false. That was the best, best president. So you just don't let any of it get in there. You just go, no, he broke a ton of clown barriers. Trump did. He was masterful with the way he could do that. And if that guy had one characteristic that I admire, it's his ability to spin move out of any accusation by calling the other person, an ingenious nickname that stuck, like just nailed it every single time nickname ever. I think it was low energy Jeb. Who comes up with low energy Jeb. And then you would look at him and you'd be like, man, he is really low energy. Yeah, these things work a cup of coffee, you know, shortcut narratives are really effective. Speaking of presidents, you guys see Biden the other day and it was a yesterday in Vietnam. He literally got hooked off the stage because he started mumbling nonsense about something that was far off of what they were talking about. They turned his mic off while he was talking and he kept talking. And then they had an announcer get on and basically say, oh, you're done here, Mr. President, get, they got the hook out and they pulled him off stage. It was like, watch, watch this clip. Yeah, it was, it was insane. Shepherd came out. It was full blown, like, all right, get this fucking guy out of here before he makes us look even dumber. Unbelievable. You know, in a nation of 360 some odd million Americans, I think many of us are very intelligent. Uh, the last two presidents have been kind of, you know, not up to snuff, right? Like where are our good people, you know, like, yeah, we're not sending our best anymore, unfortunately. It is comical, but it's also downright embarrassing because, and I've heard enough out of you to know that you'll agree with this, I'm still very proud to be an American, I think there's a lot of wonderful things that this, this country stands for and imbues and, and it's done and it's, it's a downhill slope right now on both sides. And I just laugh at, I mean, obviously like most Bitcoiners and Josh and I are aligned on this, I just, both sides are in full blown, full frontal clown mode and, and anybody that's latching onto either candidate at this point, I almost lose respect for it. It's like, how can you take either of these guys seriously? But we need to dig out of that. Like that, that needs to be fixed to your point. That's not something that that's healthy for the average American citizen to just be resigned to the fact that the leader of the entire nation is a complete idiot, we need to dig out of that and hopefully reverse that trend. Well, you know, in general, I lean conservative usually, but I actually have been, uh, you know, found myself very intrigued by Robert F Kennedy Jr. And it's not just because he's a Bitcoiner, but I think he really has the discourse into the Overton window, right? Like by basically being like, why am I not, I'm a Democrat my whole life. My father was, you know, a president, a Senator, a presidential candidate. My uncle was killed. He was one of the most popular democratic presidents of all time. Why am I not allowed to say this? Why am I not allowed to have opinions or questions? And yet in America, I feel like anytime we lose our foundational principle, which is, you know, free speech, anytime we're losing that we're losing our soul as a almost anything you want without significant repercussions, that's, that's just how things are. Like, obviously if you say something that's very racist or hateful or homicidal or genocidal or something, then people are going to be, they're gonna have a lot of feelings about it, but there's very little speech. That's actually illegal speech, right? And we should be able to, yeah, just get together in a room and discuss things as Americans. That's a very rare thing. Like that's, that's not something that you find in almost any other culture on earth. You know, I was talking to Peter McCormick McCormick about this, but like the British sarcastic, dry humor that they're all known for that is because they don't have free speech. So they have to be sarcastic. That's never occurred to me before that either. Right. They have a shield to hide behind and they can be like, Oh, come on, mate. I was just taking the piss. Whereas we as Americans can just say what the fuck we actually think, which is a more effective system. They, they have to, I mean, I'm glad it happened because I love British humor. Yeah. They have to show a side boob. They can't go full frontal. You know what I mean? Exactly. Gentlemen. I'm sure you guys will both agree with this point as well. So we've got these clown puppet leaders that we're, we're just accosted with every four years and have to deal with the shit sandwich or the giant douche. And we've got to pick between the two of them. But then there's also like every time there's like, I mean, I'd say most times there's a new law, some new bullshit with COVID that happened in the last couple of years, I'm stunned by the stupidity and heavy handedness, which a lot of this stuff comes down. And it's like, it's like, I'm disappointed by how bad these takes can be and how bad these real changes are and how overbearing a lot of this has been, especially in the last few years. But it seems like every time a new law is, is instantiated, it's just feels wrong on its face. And I feel like people are so numbed to it at this point that they just say, they just expect it to be the wrong thing instead of what we would prefer to have. Or I think people from our circles would prefer to have at least. What are your thoughts on that? About how there's just like this numbness about how these people operate. Well, there's, you know, we're recording this on nine 11 and one of the reasons I wanted to record with you guys, cause you're both firefighters and I think not, you know, we're all around the same age. Nine 11 was the seminal moment of our young lives. And obviously like certainly had an effect on both of you, I'm sure. And I'd love to hear your stories about that. Um, but you know, to me, I'm, I'm, I have a good, I have a great memory. That's it's a gift and a curse. And one of the things that, uh, I remember is the world pre nine 11. I remember what it was like, and we're now living in an entirely different world. That's not better. It's a worst world. You know, we have an, a heightened security state, a heightened surveillance state. I mean, you used to be able to just, you know, what is TSA really accomplished? Like, did they prevent any new, uh, atrocities? I don't think they did because one guy tried to bomb a shoe bomber shoes, and now we are going to take off my, I got to take off my fucking band, slip -ons every time, you know what I mean? And your belt crying shame. Yeah. Yeah. Fucking shoe bomber. I mean, it is, it is like, we appreciate you bringing that up. It is, uh, in the fire service, it's, it's the day of the year. Um, and it, it's been said for a couple of decades now, never forget. But I feel like the fire service, Josh has done a pretty good job of not forgetting. Like you still see it on a lot of fire trucks. Every single firehouse around the country is honoring it today. There's a moment of silence that comes over dispatch. There's events that happen every year and yeah, I don't know. This is just a complete sidebar on nine 11, but it was fucking insane. Fucking insane. I was in sixth grade. I remember where I was as everyone does. Um, and wasn't fully able to appreciate the magnitude, but as the years have gone watching back in the documentaries and thinking through just like from our vantage point, um, I, Josh, we've talked about this before with our career. Like there is a degree of submission to risk. It doesn't happen very often. We don't want to overplay the hero card here. And the vast majority of our job where paramedics, we rotate ambulance to fire truck, but when this shit happens, it's real. And you've kind of sworn an oath to not have a choice, but to go into that, if that happens in your career, that second story bedroom to risk your life for a kid or whatever, all those men and women that went into that building, obviously hindsight's 2020, but if we worked in New York at that time and, and had the badge on, we would have had, we would have done the exact same thing. So, um, yeah, the heroism that existed by I agree, like to, to get, to get back off the nine 11 is just like, what, how has the world improved in any way, shape or form since then? And it has not in many ways, it's devolved in the opposite direction and we need new currents that flow the opposite way that, that get us back to a lot of American ideals, which is part of what we've latched onto the most about what you've said. And spoken into this community. Totally. We see, uh, so the Patriot act was instantiated right afterwards, which took away a whole, it added surveillance, took away a whole bunch of fundamental rights. And it was supposed to be sunsetted. I don't remember if it was five or 10 years after nine 11, but they extended it and they've continued to extend it since then. It's again, back to what we were just talking about. Like these, it's almost like a peg in, they get a foothold in and the politicians never relinquish any power whatsoever. It's always another step up. Another squeezing of, of the populace. They peg a shit coin into, into American ideals, kind of like potentially pegging shit coins into Bitcoin with drive chains. I don't know. Maybe we ended up today. Smooth transition there. I can't think of a worse way to honor all of the brave guys, you know, who ran into the towers when they were on fire. Then what we've done in the aftermath of nine 11, you know, I just can't think of a worse world. I saw it. I saw an Instagram post that actually made me pretty emotional. It was a, you know, young, pretty girl. She's probably in her like late twenties now. And she went to visit the Memorial cause her father was FDNY and he ran into the building. He ran into tower two and he collapsed on him and she grew up her whole life without her father. Right. And he made the ultimate sacrifice. And that's something that you guys have to, you know, that's an interesting conversation actually like around risk.
A highlight from Week in Review - Episode 23
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Welcome to this week's Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review. What a week it has been. We saw a president fail to acknowledge the events of 9 -11 by giving a speech in Anchorage, Alaska, of all places. Then he lied about it. It was an amazing thing. I mean, what a week he has had. The news for Joe Biden is bad and keeps getting worse. For example, we talked about Biden's visit to Vietnam where they literally had to pull him off the stage. Man, oh man, did you see him in Vietnam? Holy moly. They had to pull him off the stage because he started babbling like an idiot. That's the president of the United States. And listen, we better hope he runs in 2024. Let's pray for once that a Democrat's ego torpedoes their chances for reelection. Because if he runs, there's no way Americans can vote for that. There's no way. It's impossible. That's not wishful thinking. It's, it's, you know, September of 2023 and they have to yank him off the stage. They did everything but take out that old vaudeville, the big hook, you know, you put the whole, pull the hook out and drag and then do a little soft shoe off the stage. Some disembodied voice comes over the PA and says, that's it. The press conference is over. And he looks around baffled and says, thank you everybody. Thank you. Where do I go? Where do I go? Don't throw me down, Clark. Certain sharp -eared listeners know what reference I just made there. Let's listen together to grandpa Joe. I want you to, I want you to hear what it sounds like when a president of the United States literally gets, gets the hook. They're so embarrassed for him. For whatever reason, he wound up in Vietnam over the weekend. Maybe air force one took a wrong turn and it landed in Vietnam and his appearance there by, you're going to hear about it all day long today on the news, at least on normal news. You might not hear about it on ABC, CBS, or NBC, but I'm not sure that even they won't cover this because it was this bad. Check this out. We talked about, we talked about at the conference overall, we talked about stability. We talked about making sure that the third world, excuse me, third world, the Southern hemisphere had access to change. It had access. It wasn't confrontational at all. Thank you everybody. This ends the press conference. Thanks everyone. I mean, what a disaster. And then he, then he goes and shuffles off. That's the president of the United States. The music is the best part. When they started playing the lounge music, Robert is in Sarasota. Robert, you see that clip? Yeah. Can I first use your platform to say, um, my thoughts and prayers are going out to everybody today, uh, that we're victims or new people. Absolutely. 9 11. And to follow that up, our president of the United States is booked 3 ,467 miles away into Alaska. You can't get farther from New York than where he's going to be today, where he canceled oil and gas leases. And clearly there's a God because that's exactly where he belongs as far away from New York. Here's the headline that every American who is suffering through the Biden administration needs to know 22 years of never forget. And Biden is spending 9 11 in Alaska. Meantime, we still got the, uh, the occasional troll or the occasional malcontent caller to the Mike Gallagher show. And I had a texture who claims that it's not really free speech to yell fire in a crowded movie theater. Of course, we're talking about all of the Democrats efforts to shut down speech. They disagree with beginning with Trump on down. And I played a montage of the Democrats denying the 2016 election to anyone who says that Republicans are a bunch of election deniers. What do you say about all the prominent Democrats who insisted that Trump didn't win in 2016? I just got a text from Macomb County, Michigan that I want to share with you. And then I want to play a little clip for the benefit of Macomb County, Michigan, and listen to this Michigan texture. Thank you. I mean, I appreciate that you don't agree with me and you think I'm a, I'm rotten to the core and you, and you, you, you hate my, my message on, on the radio and TV, but that's okay. I appreciate dissent and I, and I am truly intrigued. I always wonder, does the left do leftists like Macomb County, Michigan really feel this way? Or are they just regurgitating talking points that they've heard on MSNBC and they've read in the New York Times? It is a fact that election laws were changed and the election process was wildly upended under the guise of COVID. It is a fact that we had an historic amount of mail -in ballots. It is a fact that we had a record number of ballot harvesting. We things know were changed in 2020 under the pretense of COVID. That's a fact. And I'm not yelling fire in a crowded theater by stating those facts. That's their go -to. So let me read the whole text to you. And then I want to give you a video response, Macomb County, Michigan. And I challenge you to text me again. I don't want to embarrass you, but I'm going to challenge you to at least text me your response when I ask you about the video response that I have to your text. Here's the text. It is not free speech to yell fire in a crowded theater. It is not free speech to perpetuate a well -proven lie that there is some absurd sweeping conspiracy that stole the 2020 election and use that lie to divide people and disenfranchise millions and millions of voters. What you people are doing is destroying this country. You are working to drive the wedge between everyday Americans deeper and deeper. And you're just doing it because there's a market for it. Either you are willfully lying and towing your party line, or you're dumb enough to believe this trash yourself. You should feel deep, deep shame for perpetuating your lies. I hope one day you realize the damage you're doing and are tormented by your own guilt forever. Okay. Now, over the top drama queen hysterics aside from that text, let's take a look at the substance of what that person wrote. They want to sit there and accuse anybody who questioned the outcome of the 2020 election as somebody advancing an absurd sweeping conspiracy. So Macomb County, Michigan, what do you say about this? Trump didn't actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election and he was put in office because the Russians didn't appear. Trump knows he's an illegitimate president. The president of the lack of a legally elected is not legitimate. I don't see the president as elect a legitimate president. You said you believe that Russia's interference altered the outcome of the election. I do. We have a president who is in fact it is proven has been assisted by the Russians and may in fact not be a legitimate president. The one thing that Trump is fearful of when it comes to his being president is that finally we will see how illegitimate his victory actually was. I have an objection. I object to the 15 votes from the state of North Carolina. I object because people are horrified. He's an illegitimate president. Do you believe Trump is illegitimate president? What I believe is that there's no question that the outcome of this election was affected by the Russian interference. There absolutely is a cloud of illegitimacy. So that legitimacy is in question. Yes. That was a very tainted election. And in that sense, it's illegitimate. Now, Macomb County, Michigan, I dare you to write me back and follow up to your original text and condemn all of your hero Democrats the way you condemned any of us who questioned 2020. You see, you don't get to have it both ways. Meanwhile, back to Grandpa Joe's refusal to attend any of the 9 -11 ceremonies in New York or Shanksville, PA, or even where he lives in Washington, D .C., to commemorate that awful historic day in America's history. Tulsi Gabbard said it best on Fox News. Biden has decided he wasn't going to be bothered. He'd be up in Anchorage, Alaska. It's outrageous. It's last night on Fox News for those like myself, many patriotic Americans across the country who enlisted because of the jihadist attacks on 9 -11. I find it deeply offensive that he specifically chose to turn his backs on all of those families and all of those Americans. White House is saying that, you know, presidents don't show up to Hawaii on Pearl Harbor after all these years. What's the point? It's insulting beyond words. It was even more insulting. I don't want to say even more insulting. It was also insulting to hear in the speech that he delivered during that fuel stop in Alaska, him lecturing the American people about how it is our responsibility that we must take seriously to defend democracy. And he is saying these words, lecturing us as he and his administration, every step of the way, are undermining our own democracy, both by his politicizing the Department of Justice to go after Donald Trump, his major political opponent in this upcoming presidential election, his going after and changing the rules of the DNC to make it so people who vote for RFK Jr., their votes won't actually count. He is sending his Department of Justice after parents who are trying to stand up for their right to their children's education. I've been thinking a lot about the difference, the major differences between the right and the left in America. For example, the MAGA movement. The putting America first philosophy is met with such disdain from progressives and leftists and Democrats. But when you think about it, putting America first is something best exemplified by Donald Trump's policies. Putting America last best sums up the Biden Democrat approach. Judge Jeanine Pirro summed it up that way last night on Fox News as well. Well, it's consistent with his America last mentality. I mean, this is unprecedented. No president since this happened has not been at one of the sites, whether it's Washington, Shanksville or ground zero. And if you're from New York City, especially, I mean, I was in the city that day. I remember the smoke in the towers. I remember, you know, my investigators saying we've got to get home. We've got to get back to Westchester. This is a very sacred day for so many people. And the president doesn't see it that way. And the sad part about it is that, you know, the world is not a safer place now. It's because of Biden now that the Taliban is back in control in Afghanistan with all the weapons that we left there. We've got an open border now with people coming in that we don't even know who they are. And you can thank Joe Biden for all of that. You sure can. You know, one of the great mysteries of life for me is wondering if this kind of crap is intentional or accidental. And I ask this question all the time. Does Joe Biden and his team say, you know what, we're going to be the first administration in 22 years not to attend a ceremony in Shanksville or Washington, D .C. at the Pentagon or at Ground Zero in New York City? We're going to we're going to change the game a little bit. We're not going to appear. Is that a mistake? And as if the actions of Joe Biden weren't bad enough, egregious enough, the governor of New Mexico, some woman by the name of Michelle Lujan Grisham, decided to amend the rights of citizens of her state. Albuquerque in particular, she declared an emergency because of an incident involving the death of an 11 year old child. The governor said, well, there's gun violence. I get to declare a declare an emergency and nobody gets to carry their lawfully registered and certified guns. We must remember. The liberties, the freedoms that so many have fought and died for. And this new New Mexico governor has literally banned Americans who have a constitutional right to protect themselves from being able to carry in Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least the next 30 days after a child was killed in a road rage incident. It's it's it's extraordinary. What's law enforcement doing in Albuquerque? What's the sheriff doing? The police chief. She's sitting at this press conference next to a guy who looks like a police authority. He's got a big gold badge on. And he looks very uncomfortable where this lunatic governor is shredding the Constitution, declaring an emergency, a gun emergency. This is what Democrats, if you dared to question a lockdown, if you had any skepticism about vaccines, if you wondered about masks, they came after you. They shut you down. Be kind of interesting to talk to an airline pilot who lost his job or her job because they wouldn't want to get they didn't want to get a vaccine. Do you realize we were firing people for not getting vaccinated? You recognize the absurdity of where we were just just a very short while ago? It's called tyranny. What the New Mexico governor, Michelle Grisham, is doing is tyrannical. She's acting like she's the emperor, the king, the dictator of New Mexico. And they're going to keep doing this and they're going to keep doing this and they're going to keep doing this until they can't do it anymore. Everybody ought to be aware of what she's doing, because what she's doing is absolutely un -American. What she's doing is obscene, where on Friday, this New Mexico governor banned people from being able to carry guns because a child was killed during a road rage incident. She's decided to declare an emergency. Oh, we have a gun emergency here. So now I get to ban your right to keep and bear arms. Check out this exchange. I want to play it one more time in case you're not paying attention. Isn't it unconstitutional to say you cannot exercise your carrying license? With one exception, and that is if there's an emergency and I've declared an emergency for a temporary amount of time, I can invoke additional powers. No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute. There are restrictions on free speech. There are restrictions on my freedoms. In this emergency, this 11 -year -old and all these parents who have lost all these children, they deserve my attention to have the debate about whether or not in an emergency we can create a safer environment. Because what about their constitutional rights? I took an oath to uphold those two. And if we ignore this growing problem without being bold, I've said to every other New Mexican, your rights are segregated to theirs. And they are not, in my view. I mean, this is lunacy. I pray for her safety. I pray for Joe Biden's safety. I pray for Trump's safety. I pray for all of our elected officials' safety. So let me make sure you know where I'm coming from, where my heart is. I would never want anything to happen to any of the people who are elected to hold office. But I wonder if she would be willing to have her security detail suspend their right to protect her.
A highlight from 1401: FIDELITY: Bitcoin Will Hit $1 Billion Per Coin By This Date
"In today's show, we're going to be discussing Bitcoin ignoring the CPI and FTX as the price action hit us a September high of $26 ,600 as the bulls are back in control. We'll also be discussing the court approving the sale of FTX digital assets, meaning the assets will be sold off weekly with special handling for Bitcoin and Ethereum and insider affiliate tokens. Also breaking news just in, Congressman Tom Emmer launches an anti -surveillance state act with 49 Republicans in a new push against CBDCs, central bank digital currencies. Also the SEC chairman Gary Gensler says crypto is a field rife with fraud, abuse, misconduct. It's daunting. We'll also be discussing breaking news, $800 billion asset manager Deutsche Bank partners to offer Bitcoin custody for institutions. Let's go. It virtually means that the bank can now hold crypto directly for its clients. Also in today's episode, we'll be discussing, can the Bitcoin price achieve fidelities? $1 billion price target by 2038. That's right, the $4 .5 trillion asset manager is predicting that one Bitcoin will eventually be worth $1 billion per coin. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again that's cryptonewsalerts .net. With that being shared fam, welcome to everyone just joining us. This is pod episode number 1401. So let's fricking go. Today is September 14, 2023 and the crypto market is back in the green. Shout out to everyone out there in the live chat. It's good to see the entire Bitcoin fam. So yeah, let's kick it off with our market watch. As you can see, Bitcoin is trading back above $26 ,600. We also have Ether trading back above $1 ,600 and virtually most all the major cryptos are in the green minus BNB barely in the red. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, the current crypto market cap sits just north of $1 trillion with $28 billion in volume in the past 24 hours, but the Bitcoin dominance at 49 .2 % and the Ether dominance at 18 .6%. So yeah, checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours. We have Axly Infinity leading the pack trading at $4 .73 up 11 % followed by ThorChain up 5 .5 % trading at $1 .65 followed by Conflux up a modest 5 % trading just above or I should say just shy of 12 cents. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week, we can see virtually everything is in the green minus a handful including Scamcoin FTT down 5%. Axly Infinity leading the pack here as well up 12%. And as you can see, the alts are pumping. That's what's up. How many of you took advantage of this recent price dip? Let me know. And how many of you are gonna be hodling into the next Bitcoin halving, which is roughly six months out around the corner. Holla at your boy chat. I appreciate the interaction. At the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. And how you doing today for Christ's sake? Holla at your boy. Don't be a stranger. And with that being shared, now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts and what is popping with the King crypto. Here we go. Bitcoin hit new September highs after the September 14 daily close as markets digested macroeconomic as well as crypto. Industry news, which you can clearly see here in the Bitcoin one hour candle chart. Now data from Cointelegraph and TradingView tracked the Bitcoin price highs of 26 .5 over on Bitstamp and Bitcoin had shaken off the higher than expected US CPI the day prior, which we covered here in the show, maintaining that 26 ,000 support. Subsequent confirmation that the defunct exchange FTX had received legal permission to liquidate its remaining assets likewise failed to dent Bitcoin's comparatively solid intraday performance. And a little later in the show, I'll be sharing that ruling directly coming from the courts in regards to the FTX assets being sold. Now coming up to the range highs and once we flip these levels, we can look to finally get into a safe position and long since popular crypto trader, Crypto Tony and fellow analyst, Dan Crypto Trade suggests that the overall Bitcoin market dynamics have changed versus the period of weakness seen around the monthly close. Quoting this gentleman here, market feels different this week. The dips are being bought up relatively quick and while the price keeps sweeping highs, it keeps crawling itself back and leaving the lows untouched. The spot bid is also stronger than the past few weeks, might be wrong, but I am optimistic. Let me know if you agree to disagree with the analyst and additional analysis predicts that the longer term Bitcoin price breakout should US regulators approve a Bitcoin spot ETF or which we all know is inevitable over the coming months. He also says that BTC .d is still holding on the previous range high, which is the Bitcoin dominance chart and in the CHOP region, but ultimately says, I think this would go higher in case of a Bitcoin ETF approval one day. Yeah, that's right. They can only push it back and delay it for so long. I believe the next day they have to acknowledge it is in October and more than likely Gensler and the SEC is gonna push it back till next year. That's just my two Satoshi's. Let me know your thoughts, fam. Now more cautious was Trader Sku who referenced the on -chain volume prime to cool once more after the relief rally, quitting him here. The daily structure looks fairly good here and decreasing volumes. So could definitely be looking towards a relief rally before lower as the commentary read, noting the Bitcoin was still holding the key 25 ,000 level. Now with Bitcoin up just 1 % month to date at this time, Bitcoin is nonetheless on course for its best performing September and years. As we know, it's usually September, pun intended. According to data from monitoring resource CoinGlass, the last time Bitcoin gained in September was all the way back in 2016. That's like holy moly, seven years ago, fam. That year was its best on record at a modest 6 % while its biggest red September bear month was two years prior when it lost a whopping 19%. Talk about total bloodshed, right, fam? Now in 2022, Bitcoin shed 3 % before climbing another 5 % in October, which is a popular month amongst the bulls who informally referred to it as Uptober. So hopefully, God willing, we have another Uptober here right around the corner as we're already halfway through with September. With that being shared, fam, let me know your thoughts and outlook on the current landscape of the crypto market. Do you feel we're likely to correct lower or do you think we'll continue rising back towards that $30 ,000 level psychological resistance? Let me know, chat. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the latest judgment coming from the courts regarding the FTX asset sales. Here we have it. This is just in, the Delaware Bankruptcy Court approved the sale of FTX digital assets. We have Judge John Dorsey who made the ruling at a hearing yesterday, September 13th. Major changes were made to the draft order authorizing the sale the previous day. Now as you know, there's been a lot of FUD of people talking about all the assets, billions of dollars worth of crypto is gonna get dumped and it's going to wreck the market. Well, there are some caveats, so it's important I share them here. FTX will be allowed to sell the digital assets excluding Bitcoin, Ethereum, and certain insider affiliated tokens in weekly batches through an investment advisor under pre -established guidelines. There will be limits of $50 million for the first week and $100 million in subsequent weeks. There will be an option to increase the limit with prior written approval of the creditors committee and ad hoc committee or to raise the limit to 200 million weekly with the approval of the court. So they can't dump it all at one time which is good for the bulls, right? Now Bitcoin and Ether and insider affiliate tokens can be sold through a separate decision by FTX. After 10 days notice to the committee and the US trustee, the US trustee is appointed by the US Department of Justice. Now I'm curious what those insider affiliate tokens are. If I was to guess, I'd guess FTT, that scam coin, Bankman Fried created out of thin air and I'd also throw Solana in there, but what are your thoughts, fam? Let me know. Those sales will also be conducted through an investor advisor. Information about the sales will be subject to professionalize only and confidentially restrictions with a redacted version accessible to the public. The sales will be subject to written objection by the committees and the US trustee. And in that case, the sales will be delayed until the objections are overcome or the court orders a sale. Quoting Bak Ubu here, FTX adapts crypto sale plan to address the US government concerns. FTX, the bankrupt crypto exchange is making changes to its proposal for selling billions in crypto assets. That's right. And I just broke down ultimately what you need to know. The conditions on the latter sales were added in the draft submitted September 12th, a couple of days ago. They were regarded as cautionary moves to ensure the market stability during the influx of FTX assets. Some observers noted that the sales will represent only a small portion of the trading volume and may not have a heavy impact. But according to a recent shareholder update, FTX has $833 million worth of Bitcoin and Ethereum collectively. FTX can enter into hedging arrangements using Bitcoin and ETH with the private approval of committees and can use them for staking according to the guidelines. The FTX token, as we know, is FTT, cannot be sold without further court authorization. Well, good for them. Glad to hear they're not authorized to sell their scam coin and dump it onto the market. That's definitely a good sign, wouldn't you think? Now let's break down the next breaking story of the day. Gotta give respect and credit where it is due. We have US Congressman Tom Emmer who made a very strong anti -CBDC stance and we know that's the central bank digital currencies which the central bankers are gonna be rolling out and I know their pilots have already began rolling out around the world. So let's discuss this anti -CBDC push because I'm all for anti -CBDC. That's why I promote Bitcoin every day here on the pod. Bitcoin is the antidote to the CBDC. Let me know if you understand what I'm saying. Now Congressman Tom Emmer is leading the reintroduction of the bill that aims to prevent the Federal Reserve from creating a digital dollar. God bless him. Emmer says on the social media platform X that if it isn't designed to emulate cash, then a CBDC would dismantle the American's right to financial privacy while also emboldening the administrative state. Facts. The majority whip says that the new bill attempts to prohibit the Fed from issuing a retail CBDC while protecting innovation and any future development of true digital cash. This bill puts a check on unelected bureaucrats and ensures the US digital currency policy upholds our American values of privacy, individual sovereignty and free market competitiveness. The administration has made it clear. President Biden is willing to compromise the American people's right to financial privacy for surveillance style CBDC. I don't believe in compromising American rights. That's the bottom line. If not open, permissionless and private like cash, a CBDC is nothing more than a CCP, which we all know stands for, right? Style surveillance tool that will be weaponized to oppress the American way of life. Preach. I couldn't have said it any better myself. I stand by what he is saying because I know it's fact. Now while official, the concrete plans for the CBDC haven't been released by the US government as opposition has already formed, which is a good sign. We also have US candidates who are running for the presidential election next year in 2024, including current governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, who is running as a Republican. And we also have Kennedy Jr. who is running as a Democrat who are both pro Bitcoin and anti CBDC. So we must stand strong and oppose these weapons of financial mass destruction, which are better known as CBDCs. So again, much respect to the congressmen and those making this push. Now last month we also had Ohio Republican Warren Davidson said the CBDCs pose an existential threat to the Western civilization and was committed to fighting against them. Davidson said that he wants to prohibit the CBDCs because they threaten other digital assets like Bitcoin and impede the development of the beneficial financial technology. Facts, quitting him here. Central bank digital currency poses a serious threat, tall digital assets, as I said, at flyover FinTech. Many people wrongfully conflate even Bitcoin with a CBDC. Ignorance is bliss, huh? At least most agree that CBDC is evil, the financial equivalent of the Death Star. Great reference to Star Wars there. Don't become an accomplice to anyone designing, building, testing, developing, or establishing CBDC. Banning a CBDC is essential to the American's FinTech future. So there you have it. What are your thoughts on CBDCs if they roll out, which more than likely they're going to eventually at a theater near you, are you going to participate in them, is the million dollar question. What if they give you a stimulus and they promise you, we're gonna give every American $5 ,000 of this digital dollar, AKA CBDC, central bank Ponzi scheme currency. What are you gonna do about it? I say just say no to Bitcoin, or I'm sorry, just say no to CBDCs and fight it with the antidote, which is Bitcoin, by simply stacking stats today and preparing yourself so that you can fight the tyrants who are trying to take over our country. Just saying, fam, let me know if that resonates with you. And with that being shared, now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the latest with Mr. Gary Gensler, the chairman of the SEC and what they recently shared with Congress regarding cryptocurrencies and enforcement. Here we go. The chairman of the SEC, everyone's favorite huckster, Gary Gensler talked about cryptocurrency during his testimony before the US Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs on Tuesday, two days ago. Reiterating his views that most crypto tokens are securities, Gensler told the lawmakers without prejudging any one token, the vast majority of crypto tokens likely meet the investment contract test. Given that most crypto tokens are subject to the security laws, it follows that most crypto intermediaries have to comply with the security laws as well, quoting the chief right here. In terms of crypto, I've been around finance for 44 years now, and I've never seen a field that is so rife with misconduct. It is just, it's daunting. He further described the crypto industry right now. Unfortunately, he says there's significant noncompliance and it's a field which is rife with fraud abuse as well as misconduct. Now the Senator Bill Hagerty asked Gensler during the hearing what the SEC needs to see from issuers to approve a Spot Bitcoin ETF. Wouldn't you say that's a great question? Following the recent court ruling in favor of the grayscale investments, now the court found that the securities regulator, denial of grayscale Spot Bitcoin ETF app, was arbitrary and that the SEC Chairman Gensler replied with the following, we're still reviewing that decision. We have multiple filings around Bitcoin ETF products, so it is not just the one you mentioned, but there's multiple others. We are reviewing them and I am looking forward to the staff's recommendations. So there you have it. How do you feel this will likely play out regarding the regulators and crypto choke point 2 .0 as it continues? Do you think it'll keep pushing innovation outside the United States? Or do you feel that it's just a matter of time and Gensler's no longer gonna be able to push back these deadlines for the SEC approvals? Because we all know once the Spot Bitcoin ETFs get the green light from the regulator, it's game on. There's literally trillions upon trillions of dollars right now sitting on the sideline just waiting for that freaking approval. And if it wasn't for the SEC, we'd already had a Bitcoin Spot ETF a decade ago because that's how long they've been denying them, right? In fact, the very first Bitcoin ETF application was submitted by the Winklevoss twins of the Gemini exchange literally over a decade ago. And while they keep approving these futures ETFs which aren't in the investors best interest, but to keep pushing back the Spot ETFs which benefit everyone makes no logic except they're doing what they do because that's what they do and let's leave it at that. And with that being shared, fam, now let's break down the latest breaking news regarding Deutsche Bank. This is big news coming from another major institution and then I'll be breaking down the $1 billion fidelity price prediction for the King Crypto. That's right, they're saying that one Bitcoin will eventually be worth $1 billion per coin and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So yeah, here we go, breaking news just in. The German bank, Deutsche Bank, was one of the handful of companies to invest in a $65 million Series B fundraising round for tourists in February of this year. The company offers enterprise -grade infrastructure to issue managed custody and trade, cryptocurrencies, tokenized assets, as well as NFTs and other digital assets. Let's go. Now according to Taurus' co -founder, Lamin, the partnership underwent a thorough and very detailed due diligence process before the German bank decided to use its infrastructure services, quoting them here. It started end of 2021 and ended somewhere in 2022. We won the deal a couple of quarters ago and as previously reported, Deutsche Bank has been brewing plans to offer crypto custody and trading services to its clients over the past three years, since 2020. The bank most recently applied for a digital asset custody license from Germany's financial regulator, Baffin, in June of this year, as it continues plans to offer its customers access to crypto markets as well as assets. Now brain, aka, confirm, whoever that is, the agreement is global in scope with tourists providing custody and tokenization tech in line with the local regulatory requirements. Let's get it. Good stuff. And I appreciate the live chat right now. I am tuned in and checking you guys out. Much love. Any questions, feel free to drop them. And again, at the end of our premiere story with Fidelity, we're gonna be reading those comments out loud. Anyways, announcing the partnership, Deutsche Bank Global Security Services head, Paul Maly, said that crypto space is expected to grow to trillions of dollars of assets and is likely to become a priority for investors and institutions. Preach, that's a given, right? Meanwhile, Deutsche Bank's asset management arms, DWS Group, had reportedly been in discussions to invest in two different German -based crypto firms in February of this year. This includes crypto exchange -traded product provider, Deutsche Digital Assets, and market maker, platform, Tradius, Deutsche Bank Singapore, and Memento Blockchain also recently completed a proof of concept called Project DOMA, which stands for Digital Asset Management Access, which allows for the management of digital funds and tokenized securities. And founded in Switzerland in 2018, Taurus' Series B round was led by Credit Suisse and included the likes of Deutsche Bank alongside Arab Bank Switzerland, indicating major interest from traditional financial banks. Let's go. The announcement of its Series B round also clearly outlined Taurus' aim to serve tier one banks in Europe. And they also told Cointelegraph that the platform serves close to 30 banks, with most deals going beyond cryptos to including tokenization of equity debt as well as other products. Deutsche Bank is set to offer customers crypto custody options through a partnership with the cryptocurrency infrastructure platform, Taurus. Now obviously, this is a major, major deal when you have a $800 billion asset manager, such as Deutsche Bank, partnering to offer Bitcoin custody for institutions around the world. The bank can now officially hold crypto directly for their clients. So there we have it. Another one bites the dust. And now for the moment you have all been waiting for. Let's discuss this $4 .5 trillion asset manager, Fidelity, which I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, is the second largest asset manager in the world, next to BlackRock that controls over 10 trillion in assets under management. They're predicting, their head of global macro, Julian Timmer is predicting that the Bitcoin price hit $1 billion per coin. So let's break this down, shall we? And then we'll dive into our live Q &A. Here we go. Fidelity's prediction for Bitcoin. We have Julian Timmer, director of global macro at Fidelity, put forth the notion that Bitcoin, the king crypto, has the potential to reach a value of $1 billion per BTC in roughly two decades, specifically around the year 2038. So there you have it. Right now we're in 2023. So what is that? Roughly like 15 years out. To supply the forecast, Timmer employed a combo of models and charts with particular focus on the stock to flow model and his own demand model. These analytic tools form the foundation for his primary prediction. And speaking of stock to flow, massive shout out to Plan B, creator of the Bitcoin stock to flow model. Now he believes, along with the stock to flow, the data, which doesn't lie, that the Bitcoin price is subject to hit between 100 ,000 and a million dollars after the halving in 2024. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the stock to flow prediction. And now we'll get back to this analysis from Julian Timmer of Fidelity. The above demand model employs Metcalfe's law, and according to the numbers of its users, grows linearly, the network's value, or interfiends, the Bitcoin price, grows geometrically. This means that the utility of the adoption of Bitcoin are expected to grow more rapidly compared to its network of users, exchanges, ATMs, and participating retailers. Therefore, this model predicted that the Bitcoin price will reach $1 million, which is seven figures, by the year 2030. Now I'd also like to throw out there, we also have Cathie Wood of ARK Invest predicting a $1 million Bitcoin price by the year 2030. In fact, if you've been following my show, then you know her bear case scenario is over a quarter million per BTC in 2030, her base case is over 600 ,000, and her bullish case is $1 .48 million per BTC. There's other big analysts and financial institutions as well, just as bullish as Cathie Wood. So I just wanted to throw that out there that there's others in agreement with Jurien Timmer thus far on this Bitcoin price prediction. So yeah, in contrast, Timmer's stock to flow supply model noted the event of significant price surges during each halving event. Consequently, when considering this model in conjunction with the other factors, it foresees a Bitcoin price range of $1 million to $10 million for Bitcoin defined by the year 2030. Timmer's demand model is more inclined towards reflecting the bottom of the Bitcoin price. But on the other hand, the stock to flow model seemed to provide a better approximation for the peak of Bitcoin. However, it's worth noting that the disparity between these two models widened significantly beyond the year 2030, which is where things get interesting. The reason behind this gap is expected to be the changing value of the dollar, as many, many economists are anticipating the crash of the dollar in which Jurien Timmer is as well. So Timmer proposes that the value of the dollar undergoes fluctuations over time when compared to other traditional assets. For instance, if just $1 was invested into the stocks during the 18th century, its present -day value would be roughly $4 billion. You mean to tell me $1 invested into stocks in the 18th century is now worth $4 billion? That tells you everything you need to know about fiat currency, folks. Now similarly, Timmer implied that if $1 million was invested today, it can grow to $1 billion in just a span of 20 years. This further revealed that the purchasing power of the dollar has significantly reduced due to factors like inflation and depreciation, and let's not forget, money printer continued to go. Just saying. Thus, Timmer's statement implied that keeping a fixed amount of dollars for many years may lead to a reduced purchasing power due to the assets' changing value, and over the last few years, an increasing number of are companies taking over the $1 trillion market cap, and as a result, it's foreseeable that in the next two decades, the concept of a trillion -dollar valuation will become more common. Yes, right, so much that individuals themselves could be worth a trillion dollars or even more. The scale of numbers may even reach the quadrillion range. Like, whoa, so is this milestone still achievable for Bitcoin is the million -dollar question. So despite Bitcoin's historical growth, it had recently faced a significant setback. Bitcoin's network activity had diminished, and it had fallen behind in comparison to Cardano's network, for example, the number of active addresses in the Bitcoin market had experienced a notable decline when compared to the levels seen in 2021, but we also gotta note that we're currently in a bear market, past couple of years. We hit the cycle peak back in 2021, and we soared. Remember COVID era? Bitcoin dumped all the way down to like $3 ,500 range, and within a year, by the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, we hit that all -time high, which is the current high of $69 ,000. So this just goes to show you how fast Bitcoin can climb during a bull market, and we know the past couple of years have been bearish as all hell, right, especially 2022. We had the collapse of Terra Luna. We had the collapse of FTX being the second largest crypto exchange at the time. There was mass contagion. Everything was impacted. We dropped to a new cycle low of 15 ,700, but I think the bottom is past us. What's your thoughts, chat? Do let me know in the comments so I can read those out loud here in a little bit, but let's finish up this prediction. The higher network activity, like increased transaction volume or active addresses, is viewed as a positive indicator for the growing adoption for Bitcoin. This can create a sense of confidence amongst investors, potentially leading to the rise in demand and positive effect on the price action, and although Timur's prediction may be considered far -fetched and lacks empirical evidence, it doesn't completely dismiss the possibility of Bitcoin reaching such levels. The concept of de -dollarization has gained stature, shifting global attention towards alternative currencies. The shift in focus is expected to drive the demand for assets like golden crypto, such as Bitcoin, and with BRICS pushing for the fall of the dollar, the BRICS currency and Bitcoin are expected to garner continued momentum. So there you have it, fam. What are your thoughts surrounding this whopping $1 billion price prediction for the king crypto by the year 2038? Do you think it's realistic? And before we even got to that billion prediction, what about $1 million by the year 2030? Do you think this is realistic? Do you think this is a pipe dream? Do you think this is conservative? What's your honest thoughts? And where do you feel the dollar is likely to go over the course of the next few years? Do you think it will not even be in existence and will be replaced by the digital version, which is the CBDCs, central bank digital currencies that Congressman Tom Emmer and many others are warning you about? Let me know your honest thoughts. And don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

"I mean, I was doing 97, 98, I was making like cash money websites on GeoCity learning HTML. Yeah, like I remember teaching myself HTML. I remember teaching myself Photoshop off of like a cracked version of Photoshop and then going to like Barnes and Noble and looking at those like $50 Photoshop tips and tricks books and just taking photos and like bringing them home and use them on my cracked version of Photoshop to figure out how to make that, you know, sort of pixel and pen diamante kind of like cash money design or something like that. But we know how to do a lot of things because the industry and just I think the time period we were in allowed us the opportunity to do multiple things. It's almost like now people want you to be more specialist and generalists and like designers from our age, our age group, or I would say we just know how to do a lot of stuff. Like you do audio editing, you do video, you do 3D, you're a photographer, like all of this is kind of wrapped up into what you do as a person and as a creator. And I think sometimes in the industry, that can be hard for people to understand. Like, what do you do? And you're like, I do a lot of stuff. What do you need, you know? Yeah, but also too, I mean, from my perspective with starting the agency, right? Like if the agency continues on a good trajectory and it continues to grow, obviously I can't do everything myself, right? So if I need to outsource, I want to know what to look for and I want to be able to speak the language. So if I'm talking to a photographer, it's going to be different from talking to a video editor than talking to a graphic designer, right? So I want to be able to understand and explain and the lead and the coach and say, let's try this instead of that, or let's do this instead of that, or maybe we should use these file formats instead of these file formats, right?

"Than I am, but they still need help with that position, even with someone like Devin duvernay, who can help in special teams. And as a third or fourth option. So I look at pick number 22 if zay flowers from Boston colleges there. If Jordan Addison from USC is there, these are still players that can be a good value and we're talking about they're on your team for 5 years, not just one year and they are much better prospects for the long term also a lot cheaper for the long term. Yeah, the money side of that is really important, especially when you've spent 15 million guaranteed on that 31 year old wide receiver, but we can't wait to see them in the offense and I love that Mina told us what it might look like coming up on NFL live. First round prospects out of Georgia Jalen Carter visiting the Seahawks tomorrow. Next, Mina's gonna tell you why he's the most complete player in this draft.

You can find the windows and find the lanes and he's obviously done in an extremely high level this whole career. What a throw on the money to Brooks. So I'm not worried about the height at all. And he's so elusive, you know, he kind of almost baked these defenders. They think they have them. He moves. His eyes are downfield the whole time. I don't think that's a factor.

They're on the clock 'cause presented by ego outdoor power tools, premiering tonight. At 8 p.m. eastern exclusively on ESPN2 and ESPN+. Let's continue on with the draft. Talking about Jalen Carter with some draft buzz here on NFL live over the last two seasons, Jalen Carter, a dominant force, we're going to start with Adam Schefter first, Adam, what more can you tell us about Jalen Carter and what he's been up to lately? Well, jelly Carter is visiting this shield. But let's start with the Carolina Panthers right now, Laura, who had the number one pick in the draft and are hosting quarterbacks. Anthony Richardson is in today. He'll be followed by Bryce young. We'll go back to Jalen Carter, like you said, the Seattle Seahawks will be hosting him tomorrow on a visit. The Seahawks have the 5th trip and there's Anthony Richardson. He's in Carolina today. Bryce young will be in tomorrow. And so they're taking a look at quarterbacks as to see which one is going to be going. Number one overall Bryce young continues to be the favorite to wind up in the number one spot at the top of the draft. As for will levis, he is scheduled to visit the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday tomorrow, Titans are quietly in the quarterback market waiting to see whether they can move up, waiting to see where their quarterback slides to them, but they've been doing a lot of leg work on a lot of different quarterbacks in this track and we'll see whether or not the Tennessee Titans make a bold move for a quarterback in the first round. We mentioned Jalen Carter. He is scheduled to visit the Seattle Seahawks. He's only visiting teams in the top ten he's visited Philadelphia. He's visited Chicago. He'll now visit Seattle, which has the number 5 pick, which also has been connected to quarterbacks and we'll see what direction the Seahawks decide to go as well, Laura. Adam, I got to apologize for steering the ship the wrong direction there off the top. That was all on me, okay? I'm going to own that one. We got more Adam coming the way. You're an excellent excellent sterile or whichever direction you take me. I'm going to follow. Yeah, you know what? You're a good first mate there 'cause you just went right along with me. You were stuck on this boat, so you had no other options, but either way, over the last two seasons, as we continue on with Jalen Carter, he was a dominant force for the Georgia bulldogs. Both as a pass rusher and as a run stuffer over that span, Carter led all SEC defensive tackles in both pressures and run stops, which are tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage of course. Nina, how good can Jalen Carter be in the NFL? On tape, strictly speaking about Jalen Carter and the football player, I think you can make a case that he is the most talented player in this draft. I don't think it's that hard to make the case. Frankly, I mean, when you watch him, so many things jump out, I think the number one thing, though, is the incredible play strength. He is so physically dominant at the point of attack. His upper body, his hands, they're like grizzly bear paws. And then the fact that he has incredible balance on top of that, it's a rare combination, Laura, and then you couple that with the fact that as a pass rusher, he is incredibly advanced. I would argue more advanced than many of the edge rusher as we'll talk about in terms of his moves and how he deploys them. He has what everyone in the NFL wants, which is the ability to take over games from that three tech position on the inside. So if a team is comfortable with him and the off the field stuff, which we'll talk about in depth is this draft season goes on from the football side, I don't have questions. There will never not be a time when Mena kym talks about defensive linemen and I don't get emotional. So if you're going to watch NFL live the next hundred years. Here's the thing to MK to go off of what you just said. I think he's the most sure impact player immediately coming out in this draft. You put them in your defense and he immediately becomes one of the top three guys on that unit. That's going to impact gains in critical moments. And you all know I've talked about how I think this interior pass rush is now becoming the key to the key that you have in a tremendous amount of success. When we talk about playoff football, the athleticism of these quarterbacks and being able to track inside and out. One of the things you talk about defensive lineman, especially when they're young, is one how powerless they are and Mina you made this point at the point of contact, how much balance do you have when you're getting bumped by other offensive linemen in the trash and the things that are around you. His feet stays off the ground. He never gets stuck and his lower body, his Laura have doesn't get knocked off of his path to the football. That is immediate impact football players on the next level and he'll be that for whoever takes him. Yeah, I mean, I didn't know we could compare players to grizzly bears. I gotta change my right, I'm sure he's cops we do. That makes it so much better. I do think that on the field guys, Jalen Carter, and he was the best player at Georgia when they won a national championship in 2021. He was the best player at Georgia when they won a national championship in 2022 as well. So I see someone in a post Aaron Donald NFL. He could be the best detach on the league. He would be there with Jeffrey Simmons. He could be the Quentin Williams on the field that talent is absolutely there, which is why he will not fall out of the top ten. Adam said he's only taking business in the top ten. He will be drafted in the top ten. The talent is just too good to pass up. All right, since we all wanted to do it, everyone put your grizzly bear paws up. Oh, it's just me doing it. Okay? Thank you. That's all I wanted. Thank you for that. That made my day. We got a lot more latches on. It's

"You know what I'm saying? But he does that, but he does have a goal too. So, you know, it's a measure of authority. And he was just on to like, hey man, we are terrible on the road. We need to do better. We need to take care of ourselves better when we on the road. And apparently job of rant was like, yeah, whatever dog, and then went out there, it was kicking it. However, you kick it. And I look at NBA teams and how many of them go super duper young? Gotta have some grown-ups in the role, right? Like no matter what, you gotta have some roll ups in the room there to just be like, hey man, let me highlight you. Like whenever we talk to younger guys who came into league like super young or whatever, they're the ones that talk about like, no, this is the one that was like, yo, this is what you gotta eat. This is what you gotta do. You gotta do it. Those stories go one way. Now there's a second way the story can go that I hadn't thought about until we talked to JR Smith on game theory on Friday. And JR was talking about his thing with the grown-ups on his team was at every turn they were making it clear that he wasn't one of them. And he felt like more like he was getting hazed. Like yo, go pick up my stuff, go do this. Go do that. All of that stuff, like David west, who was a rookie on the same team the year before, we talk about how Stacey ogilvy have him go deposit checks at the bank form. But you got to have somebody that gets a hold of you early because otherwise you just get in a zillion dollars in your pocket and you roll around, you know, all these places. It's too late after a certain point for anybody to tell you anything. And the irony of this is that this became a big story last play last season and then the playoffs of like, oh yeah, we got rid of Iguodala didn't want to be here.

What do you think you would have done if you hadn't gone in the game development? I mean, it sounds like you had such an early start. Was there anything else that you had in mind even? My very, very first job was doing landscaping for a cult. Do not recommend it. Well, wait, wait, landscaping for a cult? We're going to move on from that. Okay. But after that, what I got into and what I loved was librarianship, library science, the practice of serving customers in a community through libraries. I found opportunities to with the resources I had and the place that I had in the communities that I was in to end up being a children's librarian, not just one time, but multiple times. And I loved it. I love what libraries represent. I practically grew up in libraries. The role libraries have in society..

"Now I'm looking here at the strange scaffold website and see if you've got three games that are shown here. Okay, all right, I'll see you've got El Paso elsewhere. You have an airport for aliens currently run by dogs. I think I heard about that also on kotaku. And then space warlord organ trading simulator. Those are some pretty interesting things for titles. And I like that each one of them is very different. You're definitely trying to, I guess, tell different stories with each of these games. It looks like. Yeah, the idea is, again, nothing that we bring into the world will be perfect. We are flawed human beings doing the best we can to bring capsule of our souls into being. That process is going to get a little messy. So coming from a starting point of none of these things is going to be perfect. But how can they be interesting? How can they be built in a way that is itself joyful? And how can they deliver an experience you couldn't get anywhere else is something that we want to explore as many ways as possible. So sometimes that takes the form of an inherently joyful universe, a first person open world comedy adventure game like an airport family is currently run by dogs. Sometimes it's a sci-fi body horror market tycoon, like a space warlord, which at the time of this publication will have come out pretty recently on Xbox game pass and steam. There's a lot of ideas pinging around our heads. And finding the shortest point from a to B to express those things and move on to the next project that allows us to deliver the next piece of our souls is kind of my priority. Now the first time that I heard about your work was through a game that is currently on. I played it on the switch called hypnospace outlaw. And that is such a unique. I mean, I'll put it like this. The switch often has very unique games. That's one reason why I really like the switch over say PlayStation or Xbox. But hypnospace outlaw really for me just kind of hit that sweet spot for early Internet. Nostalgia like the late 90s early 2000s web one aesthetic just like, oh, I loved it. Love it so much. How did you get involved with that game? As a teenager, actually, I met Jay as in Jay Dolan the creative director of the game. When I was a teenager playing an early version of one of his previous games, dropsy, dropsy is a game about a misunderstood horrific looking clown who wants nothing more than to bring joy and love into the lives of the people he meets. No matter how much they despise and or fear his initial appearance. And playing that game, delivering feedback that he took into consideration. And I saw coming to being in the next versions and coming to understand how myself and J. Cole and are both Christians, I've been raised around a lot of Christian media, which tends to have mixed results and finding something that was such a perfect encapsulation of what is intended to be the spirit.

"Jr. Alright, periodically we got a chance to talk about. Education and different routes that are being taken. And I wanna introduce Ben Gilpin, who was the principal of Warner Elementary School in Spring Arbor, Michigan. He's been an educator for over two decades and before becoming a principal. Taught fifth grade for nine years and prides himself on knowing each and every one of his students and oh, by the way, it's just 400 of them. Even with the mascot when he greets him at the front door, Ben, thank you for coming on with us. Well, thank you, Mitch. It's an honor to be in and a longtime fan, So thank you, Uh, memorizing 400 of anything is pretty darn tough. How were you motivated? And how are you able To learn the names of every one of your 400 students. And what effect does it actually have on them when you can spot them and say hello to them personally? It starts with it started with my own story. Um, ultimately, I did not love school growing up, and when I became an educator, I really wanted to make a difference. I wanted to make it different and a better experience than what I had. And so it was a priority to learn every kid's name and not just their name, but also get to know them. Um and seeing kids as they walk in each each day and being able to call them out by name, being able to give him a nickname of fist bump and just to watch the eyes just to see them get excited for the school day. It really means a lot in it, and I just I feel like it sets the tone. For the beginning of a positive day. I won't remind people. This segment sponsored by R in a circle sponsor, Michigan Virtual. Did you go home like with 400 pictures and just start testing yourself? Billy Jane? Uh, Juan Charles? No, I got that wrong. It's not Charles. You know, some people actually asked me that question. The thing is, every single day is practice. So every single day is there walking in the building. We're playing music, and I'm calling them out by name and Every single day I get I get to practice at it, and what's really cool is it starts with me at the front door, But the staff is just so amazing that they pick up the ball and and they get to know kids. We've got We've got teachers that leave surprised balloons for their birthdays and their lockers We've got. We've got check ins that happened all morning long just to make sure that we're setting that positive tone bright from the first minute. Now, In addition to know everybody's names your policy as an educator, and I said You were a teacher. Before you were principle. You believe that kids should have choices as to how they demonstrate their learning. Now that sounds To the first blush like, Well, how can you have a choice as to what kind of work you want to do? Either you learn it or you don't. But you maintain that There are a lot of different ways to learn it and turn it in. Give us some examples of that. Some examples. Really, You know, it comes down to motivation. Um, when? When you find out what motivates a child, you're going to get a whole lot more out of him. And I say, child, I think it actually applies to human beings. When you find those motivators, they're they're definitely more willing and able to put forth a better effort. Um, some of the things that we've done, for example, if if it was going to be a book report, and we're going to look for the setting, we've had teachers that have that have had kids create a Minecraft world that shows the setting of the book. We've had teachers that have allowed kids to create a rap song for what they know we've got. We have teachers that create dioramas so that kids can can use their art skills. And so it's really showing the kids that we value what they bring to the table that we want to see how they know that the information and then it then it even grows from that where kids are able to Really show off. Their passion. Not just the knowledge that they know, but also the passion that goes behind it. We had We had a student this year, the bitter report on manatees and ended up Writing, writing this, um, really long post out to, um Seaworld trying to get more support for the manatees. And it was that was all student driven. And I just applaud this dude having The wherewithal to kind of pick up their own learning and go with it For a minute there. I thought you're going to see and he was so motivated. He brought a manatee into class with him in the car was amazing. Uh, what part does technology play in all of this? I imagine having the Internet and computers Available allows even more creativity. It. Does it does. We try really hard to find a balance. But we also know that that students now are very different than than you and I. They're digital natives. They've grown up with the technology. They're very comfortable with the technology. So it really comes down to a mindset of We want kids to feel empowered by the technology. We want them to not look at it as a digital worksheet rather than can they become a developer or a creator? With that technology, and that does take time. Especially when you're working with elementary kids and I again I applaud my staff because what they do with this is they allow kids to take risks. And fail and learn from those things and then take it even further, which is it's a beautiful thing to see. Then you're doing a great job. And if I were a kid, I'd certainly want to go to your your school in Spring Harbor. So thanks for spending a little time with us. I appreciate we'd love to have you well, I could always use a refresher course on second grade..

You didn't set up the bass amp eat it really took the things he taught me, you know, teach me to be humble and also to Just Energy, sometimes it can see someone home and you can just feel in general so you can work with that one, but you're not supposed to be too close with that one around this one, you know those kind of bike also them. The risk that you should take as a risk, you should not take so it's like basically it's kind of like a Gamblin showing you how to basically learn from his mistakes as well and just keep moving. So it's you know, really give thanks for him and going all the way to every still where we were able to live off the grid Emilio Estefan, you know, so reaction reach into that level. Now I saw my father was saying then the first thing he said however open mind off so when he said that we'll open mind that mean whatever meal Estefan come with Just go with it because he has an open mind and this is Kelly either Tom r as my father told me that he and Bob Marley always wanted a producer and they couldn't get Quincy Jones cuz they wanted Quincy. Okay, so he told me that you know, yeah actually in a bit better wage. Position that were we were in cuz we had to do everything on our own. So with the knowledge and musical ability that I gave you and then you have Emilio Estefan of course can create Magic which we did. Yes, and that's where we stood and made songs like one world. You know, right right one world. Is Big title track on the album. Yeah, man, one word one praya. Yeah your father who you know just for the listeners in case anybody didn't know, you know, it's an original member the faithless and he produced what three of the albums and played bass and like Fifty, you know them or something like that one of the greatest musicians, you know, you'll never ever play music. Let's just put it that way. So you're coming from a serious lineage there. Tell me a little bit about you know when you very very firm. You know beginning like start from the time that you first started to, you know, say yeah, I want to do a music to just like my dad. This is a really started out man my mother. Okay, give a lot of credit to my mother and Angela Barrett saying so we call it Angela Hicks Barrett cuz you know Joe Higgs is her father. Okay, Joey. This is the Godfather. All right, Bob Marley and Bonnie and Pita Harmony train them on harmonies. And that's what they made those sweet harmonies that people are still trying to figure out. Yeah, see so so I think I was over on four or five years old. I would say about 4, but we're 5 a.m. We use. We see the Gold Records all over the place. I and these album and pictures above Molly all over the world. So we used to watch the video. But it never clicked to me. I didn't know who my father was. Okay, and and then I used to watch the TV and used to see, you know, everything on the TV on my mother said to me one day and say look see father there and it was the Santa Barbara 1979. Okay. Yeah, I never singing songs like ambush in the night and that's what I definitely remember. Okay from there such a way. That's that it. So so from there, so now we used to have the whole house used to fill out bass and guitars. Yeah, so I picked up one of the Bays now and then I had a older brother named lapa they use the, to the hose and previous to and I think one of the last things he said was I wanted to practice, you know stuff that took off that the base and my father saw me playing a really take mysterious because I guess a lot of his children started playing this place. They got serious and they got serious with them. They stopped. Okay, but they wanted to do something else was difficult cuz you have to remember, you know, being the son of a legend in of people are going to judge you regardless the right people come to me and say how many kids you have. I'm not really busy. Like I only have one child, you know. Yeah, but people think I have like a bunch of children because my father had a bunch of sugar. Yeah. Yeah, but then, you know these times wage. It grew up and see how he was very loving to all of my brothers and sisters, but he could still see the ones that never really grew up with him. They could also be a little resentful in a certain ways and necessarily learned that money and these things are not really wanting so so I have a different mentality growing up, you know, okay, but to get back on topic, so yeah. Yes. I love that that man then.
