A highlight from Who Is Worse? Blackrock Or The Catholic Church (Biggest Money Cartel In History)
"Are you ready to wage a war without end against you? Are you ready to wage that war armed with nothing but bottomless poverty? I didn't think so. In that case, stop talking bullshit. And get yourself some shoes, because the air in here is unbreathable. Money corrupts, and that's not news. Today, it's Black Rock, Vanguard, and State Street. But not too long ago, there's an entity that held even more power than those multinational conglomerates. We're going to take a step back in time to the Catholic Church of the Renaissance and learn how it basically controlled everything it touched and how the game has stayed pretty much the same through the 21st century. We may just find similarities to how banks, hedge funds, and the uber wealthy elite wield political power today. Let's get it. Now, before you get your commenting fingers twitching about how I'm being mean to Catholics, know that I'm just talking about a political institution 500 years ago. I'm not talking about Catholicism as a religious practice or the church today. You do you when it comes to religion. This is America. Okay, now let's get back to the Renaissance. One big similarity the old school church has with our tradfi overlords is the emphasis on secrecy. Both institutions are shrouded in mystery. No one really knows their entire net worth or their intentions. Well, other than maintaining the status quo so they can rake in as much money as possible, both the Catholic Church and the banks have covered up scandal and corruption time after time so they can continue business as usual. Back in Da Vinci's time, there are all sorts of rumors of popes and other church officials not exactly keeping up with the Christian morals they were preaching. There is abuses of all kinds, incest, orgies, mistresses, bribery. We're not even talking about the polycule. You name the sin, the Renaissance popes were probably doing it. There is even a pope who supposedly drank children's blood. And that same corruption seems to be rampant within the banks and hedge funds in modern times. JP Morgan was found to be handling the payments between Epstein and the people he was trafficking with. In fact, the number of billionaires with connections to Epstein are startling. What were you doing on the island? And we'd probably hear more about similar corruption and scandals within Black Rock, Vanguard and State Street if they didn't own basically every news organization in the US. But we'll get to that a bit later. For now, the big boys just pay a lot of fines for doing bad things. And that brings us to the first tool you need if you want to control everything. Here's a hint. It's all about the money. Have you ever heard the phrase, money is power? Well, I'm pretty sure the Renaissance Church invented that concept. Most economists reckon the wealth of the modern day Catholic Church is actually immeasurable due to all the priceless artwork, artifacts and the money laundering going on. And the reported $30 billion net worth is still high despite countries going through a Protestant Reformation during the Renaissance and subsequently reclaiming church lands. So just imagine how much land and property the church owned back when Catholicism was the only thing on the Christian menu. Although it's really hard to know for sure just how much cash the pope was raking in during the Renaissance, economists estimate it would be a little over $40 million annually in today's terms. And remember, this income doesn't include the land or artwork they're receiving as gifts or claiming by force. This gave the pope the kind of capital countries are usually playing with. And thus, the church had the same power as monarchs. Some would argue even more. And folks, we may have ditched the funny tights and corsets or maybe you have, but we have the same kind of issue today. Vanguard, Black Creek and State Street manage almost $20 trillion, which is almost more than the U .S.'s GDP. And not only do they control more wealth than most countries in the world, those hedge funds are also managing wealth for countries, which creates a vicious, incestual cycle of corruption. Back in 2016, Forbes reported that the wealth gap is worse today than it was in the Middle Ages. And that's not very hard to believe when we know the top 1 % holds 15 times more wealth than the bottom 50 % of America. And during the COVID lockdown, the 10 richest billionaires doubled their fortunes, while 160 million people fell into poverty. So how did both the uber wealthy of the modern day and the ancient Catholic Church amass this kind of wealth? Well, the church had millions of people tithing 10 % of their income. Doesn't this sound a bit like the interest we pay banks on loans and banking fees? And 10 % is nothing in comparison to the types of interest we pay just to exist in the modern world. The highest credit card is over 30%, and most of us are paying somewhere in the 20s. And because the Fed is raising rates, other borrowing is getting more expensive, too. Student loan rates have increased, and taking out a loan to buy a home is nearly impossible these days because rates have almost tripled. mortgage rates haven't been above 6 % since the housing crisis in 2008. And yet, somehow, it's only us plebs who are paying these kinds of rates to borrow money. The corporations like BlackRock and JP Morgan take out loans with nearly 0 % interest. In fact, the wealthier you are, the less banks deem you as a risk. So you get the best rates. But in reality, this turns into a vicious cycle where the hyper wealthy hoard more money and the poor can't afford to borrow. Right now, the average interest for a personal loan is between 6 % and 36%, where the average interest for businesses is 2 % to 13%. Interest is leveraged against the average American the same way the Catholic Church used to leverage Ursary Usury is the practice of charging interest, and it used to be the biggest sin you could commit. But the church got creative with how it weaponized usury. It didn't go after wealthy banking families like the Medicis, who supplied the church with gifts and managed church money for free. The church conveniently cracked down on the practice so that the lower classes wouldn't have access to the extra capital that would give them the opportunity for upward mobility. It's wild how the past is so similar to our present. Why do you think day traders and TradFi have to keep at least $25 ,000 in their accounts? Supposedly, it's to protect the poor from the volatility of the market. But the way I see it, it's just another method of keeping smart people from changing their economic circumstances. And who do you think pressured the SEC to create that law in the first place? I'm willing to bet it was a giant money manager like State Street, Vanguard and BlackRock. They would like to have a monopoly on trading and hand all of us regular Joes a measly little 0 .01 % or whatever the bank interest is these days. I say no. And I want more than a toaster. And speaking of monopolies, the Catholic Church had a monopoly on salvation during the Renaissance, so people couldn't exactly go around negotiating that 10 % tithing rule or what exactly counted as a sin. It's really similar to how we can't really negotiate modern prices in this supposedly free market. The monopoly aspect is something the church and our wealthiest modern day corporations have in common. Look at the bank failures recently. Despite Jamie Dimon claiming the smaller banks are good for our financial ecosystem, Chase was very quick to gobble up the banks that went under. If we weren't there already, we're scarily close to a bank monopoly. Another way the Catholic Church made money was selling indulgences to rid the nobility of their sins. The Renaissance nobility were up to some shady things too and needed to be seen as moral so they could stay in power. The most corrupt nobles could buy a spot in heaven by donating land or commissioning artwork. Doesn't this feel a lot like government subsidies and contracts for major corporations? Hey, you want to look like you support green energy? Give Elon Musk millions to play with. Oh sure, Blackstone, we'll subsidize your billion dollar debt with taxpayer money because it makes us look like we're stimulating the economy. No problem. Another modern means of absolution is corporations using carbon credits to pay off their climate sins. This is how companies like Exxon have a higher ESG score than Tesla. They know who's palm to grease. Another great way to amass incomparable wealth is to be able to claim yourself as tax -free. If you can pull that off, it's an amazing feat. Just ask the NFL. Throughout history, the Catholic Church found ways to skirt taxation by the state and that practice is alive and well today. Do you think Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are paying income taxes? I hate taxes. You hate taxes. We all hate taxes. But in our current society, we pay them. And it's a little more than unfair that the wealthiest among us are acting like they're tax exempt. Both the mega wealthy and the Catholic Church of the Renaissance controlled education and access to information. So kind of like mind control. The church kept their religious texts in Latin to keep the masses from being able to access it themselves. We already talked about how they also chose a lot of their sins to maintain the status quo in social hierarchy. It's a sin if you don't hit the like button. Similarly, corporate lobbyists have forced the government to slash education funding. That combined with other factors have made tuition exorbitantly high. We already talked about the student loan issue. Most people can't even afford college anymore. And if you take your education into your own hands by trying to stay up to date on news and media, you'll quickly realize almost every media company is owned by major corporations who have BlackRock and Vanguard as their primary investors. So you can't always trust what they're telling you because they have an agenda to stay in power. That's why it's hard to find information on the full extent of the corruption of the likes of BlackRock and Vanguard. I'm sure many reporters have pitched stories that have been shut down by the shady higher -ups. But here at BitBoy Crypto, we're proud to bring you the content that can't be bought by dark Wall Street money. Finally, that brings us to the third way the church and finance sectors control the world. It's not what you know, but who you know. And you know me. And I know you know that I know you. Political wheeling and dealing. And if that doesn't work, position your family members in places of power. Every royal court and government had pupil ambassadors that would ride back and forth through the Vatican and other church lands negotiating with church officials. That sounds a lot like a very early version of a lobbyist to me. And because as the head of the church, the pope had immense power, he was able to recommend marriages, which usually involved installing a member of his family at a high position. Pope Alexander VI married his daughter, Lucretia Borgia, off three different times. He simply annulled her first marriage when her husband was no longer politically advantageous and the Borgias may or may not have been responsible for murdering Lucretia's second husband. Pope Clement VII married one of his family members, Catherine de Medici, to the future king of France, which was a helpful political alliance during a time fraught with Protestant uprisings. This should all sound very familiar because the majority of our politicians, no matter the political party, have familial or social ties to banks, hedge funds, and the uber wealthy elite. There are so many examples of this, we can't list them all, but here are a few to sink your teeth into. George W. Bush had an uncle who provided discreet banking services for people in Washington, DC, and his brother Jeb also worked in banking before politics. Then you have the Clintons, whose son -in -law is an investor at a Texas private equity firm. Trump is friends with all sorts of sketchy billionaires across the globe. And look at Jared Kushner. And then you have Biden, whose son Hunter has been a hedge fund principal, venture capitalist, private equity fund investor, and painter. And now we have even more of Jamie Dimon's shenanigans. He doesn't have enough power running the largest bank of America. He's thinking of going into politics? And remember, guys, political corruption is like an iceberg. The evidence we have is just the tip due to how good they are at covering their tracks. And the Renaissance pope's habit of just making princes is exactly what our financial overlords do today. Pope Leo III crowned Charlemagne the Holy Roman Emperor out of nowhere, and Pope Alexander VI made one of the sons he had with his official mistress, a prince who supposedly inspired Machiavelli's The Prince. I don't think he inspired the artist, though. BlackRock and the likes are making princes, too. This is where we get into the modern day campaign financing, where it costs millions to be democratically elected prince. In 2016, only 158 families controlled 50 % of campaign financing. Our biggest banks spend millions on campaign financing for Republicans and Democrats every year, and that's just the money they actually report. There's a bigger, more illicit pool of dark money that controls politics. And if you think they're spending billions on these politicians just to be nice, think again. Nobody spends something for nothing. Billionaire Bernard Schwartz is quoted as saying, I don't ask politicians to do what I say. I want them to hear me when I have a problem. And according to Vanity Fair, BlackRock's CEO Larry Fink loved to go around saying that he told Washington what to do. Doesn't all this sound a bit like the Catholic Church saying, Well, you technically can do what you want, but if you don't do what I say, your soul will spend eternity in a very hot, not -so -nice place. You don't want to know where that poker goes. And now we get to number four on our list. It is better to be feared than to be loved. Also known as scare tactics. If the immense wealth, information control, and political corruption wasn't enough to scare the living daylights out of you, the Renaissance Catholic Church took it to a whole other level. The way the church portrayed hell through artwork and story was absolutely terrifying. Of course you're going to do whatever the Pope says to save yourself from eternal damnation. And the banks and hedge funds do this too. Make sure you have an IRA because if you aren't getting our measly 5 % every year, how will you possibly be able to retire? Don't worry, that number barely covers inflation on a good year. And if you don't buy things with credit cards or open a car loan and pay his interest, you won't have credit to buy a house later. And finally, this one's my favorite, guys. If you don't bail us out, the entire world will explode. We're too big to fail. And now we get to the final element you will need to succeed at controlling everything. Drum roll, please. Military power. Plato said, All wars are fought for the sake of getting money. And folks, he was probably right. The Pope would also deem certain wars holy and approve military actions. When Henry VIII left the church, the Pope excommunicated him and told his people that rising up against him was holy because he'd gone against God. Pope Alexander VI issued the Enter Saterra, which authorized Spain and Portugal to colonize, convert and enslave the Americas. And sometimes the Pope would even command armies himself. Did you know the Pope raised and commanded the army that was responsible for the Crusades? So I guess that we can be thankful that the hedge funds and banks haven't started raising their own armies. But then again, why would they when they have the entire government under their thumb and they could spend the free time bathing in gold? Today, massive corporate institutions lobby in favor of warfare because it benefits them financially. Corporations have made billions from the war in Ukraine and the Iraq war was conceived to financially benefit oil companies and their investors. Just look how much BlackRock has invested in military weapons. $56 .74 billion. And you can't tell me they don't have a financial interest in the military industrial complex. That was a lot of info, guys. And I'm impressed you stuck with us for this trip down History Lane. I don't want to leave you on a gloom and doom note, however. Here's the bright side, folks. The Protestant Reformation did come as a reaction to the Catholic Church's corruption and power. And hundreds of years later, the church is still powerful. Nowhere near as powerful as they were during the Renaissance. We have the same opportunity to throw off the yoke of the banks and hedge funds that control our current financial system and government. That's where crypto comes in. No matter how much they try to manipulate the market, they can't control our gains, especially when we think long term. Do your research. Find out who the biggest investors are in the companies you buy from and patronize smaller businesses. Take your business or credit unions instead of feeding the pockets of the giant banks. Really question what politicians are telling you and push for campaign finance reform. This is a potential future where we all are free. That's all I have for you guys. DZ out.
A highlight from #460 5 Crucial Factors on your path as an Entrepreneur
"Welcome to The Crypto Show, your podcast for everything around crypto, blockchain, bitcoin, and more. Here is your host, international blockchain expert, serial entrepreneur, and investor, Dr. Julian Hasp. Good morning, everyone. I have the honor to open the stage today and talk to you a little bit about the past couple of years, a rollercoaster ride that we've been having at the entire Gate Group. I wanted to share maybe the five key kind of learnings that I had out of this entire time. Out of a time where we built a company from scratch, part of that company was self -funded, part of the company was externally funded. We bought out our entire investors. So right now the Gate Group is owned 50 -50 by myself and my Singaporean co -founder. I've been in Singapore now for seven years. I'm originally from Austria and Europe, and our company is in the tech sector. To be a bit more specific, it's in the cryptocurrency sector. Any of you in the cryptocurrency investor sector here? None? The lessons I want to share actually have nothing to do with crypto. They are more applicable actually to everything else. Our company today, we're about 200 people. The company was valued at about $3 billion about one and a half years ago. Since then, obviously with the economic downswing, definitely the valuation also went down. We know this quite specifically because we actually wanted to go public one and a half years ago and had to pull back a bit from that goal. I really want to share those stories from myself and my co -founder Yuzhen from scratch. Starting in a cafe, in a coffee shop, and really going all the way to 200 people. What are the difficulties, what are the things to do, and what are the things to watch out for? For us, obviously COVID was a massive, massive, really a speed up to everything. Not only in the business side, when people always ask me and say, what did you do during COVID? I always tell people, we went into COVID with a small company and zero kids. We came out with a big company and three kids. So I always tell people there wasn't much else to do during COVID other than work and spend time with your partner. And and family business and everything really changed over those past years. So it's an exciting journey. There are a lot of struggles. And at the end, that's what, in my opinion, makes it so worthy. So to start, I think the very first lesson, and that's such a key lesson, whenever you start is you need to have some rules of engagement. And that's not only the business, I think it's also in a personal relationship. It's what everything you do, you should have this with yourself. For us, and I think this is so counter to most things today in society. We, at the beginning, when you're really small, you need to be very exclusive. Meaning, you need to be very clear on who is this initial group of people that you want? Who do you not want? I think there's no list that's so important. And for example, for us, starting when we thought, so Jusen is the technical co -founder and I'm more the business marketing person. For us, it was very clear to understand who are the people that we needed. And obviously, we needed on the engineering side, we needed help on the legal side, we needed help on the compliance side. So we knew all these things that we wanted, but then the question is always, who do you not want? And for example, we were very clear that we didn't want people from compliance or we didn't want people from legal who come from the typical large banks. Because we wanted to disrupt the banks, we didn't want to become like a bank. And this was so important because at the beginning, and this was just during a cycle where crypto became super popular again, we had a lot of applications from very, very skilled, very talented compliance officers and legal officers from traditional banks. And at first glance, you would love to hire these people because it makes so much sense. And they said they're willing to take a salary cut, they're willing to do so many things. But we knew that maybe the culture fit there, where who did we want to disrupt was very different to maybe how these very talented people would see this. There was a lot of these rules where I think a no list makes it extremely difficult or extremely important to sometimes make mistakes. And I think actually the no list can be more important than a so -called yes list. For us, one of the very simple rules we always had was we do not want to make decisions based on authority. We want to make decisions based on the person who actually has the best ability to make that decision. It has nothing to do with the title or with anything. And there was this early where we had a very, very, very young engineer in the company. Young by age, young in the company, inexperienced. I think in most other organizations, such a person would have very little to say or very little to do. And this person noticed that we had a potential weakness in how we structured a marketing promotion. And he spot a way how this could be exploited. And it could have been exploited not from a technical level, not from a personal data protection level, but more from a financial perspective because it would have allowed customers to cycle funds and really re -inject the benefit from a marketing promotion that we wanted to do. And everyone, I think at the table initially was like, I think the initial gut feeling was, what do you know? You've been in this company so new, you don't have the experience. And we were at these discussions and then suddenly, you know, we all stepped back and said, no, no, no, no. We don't make decisions here based on seniority or how long you've been in the company. Let's hear everyone out based on the actual data and based on the actual facts. And we gave this person a chance to really kind of present the data how someone could actually exploit that financial, that marketing promotion. And I mean, I don't know if anyone else, a customer would have actually spotted it, but it was so important in that early, very vulnerable stage to have the right people who really are willing also to speak up and really are willing to help and save us. And I think that's what so many organizations do differently, especially at the beginning where they say, yes, that's what we want to have. But at the end, that's something that they don't really execute on. These rules of engagement, so important. Step number two or lesson number two, it's always something that people, in my opinion, push a bit later. And that is actually something that a book coach had told me. I wrote a book in 2015 called 25 Stories I Would Tell My Younger Self. And I wrote it just for myself. It was like a bit of self -therapy kind of. And at that point, I had a book coach who helped me with the writing, and he gave me one tip that stuck with me. And that says, start selling the book with the first page you write. And that actually only allowed me to get that book to become a bestseller. And I sold hundreds of thousands of copies of that book, not because the book was so well written. I actually don't think I'm such a good writer. It's because I really used that lesson well in selling that book from the very first page. For us, when we started our company, I took that lesson again. I think so many people think always the main issue is finding a good product. But I tell you another thing. I know so many people, so many companies have a really good product, and they struggle selling their products or marketing their product. Actually, marketing and sales can be so much harder than finding a product. And I know there's always the story out there, the good products sell themselves. They don't. The best companies out there have the best marketing and best sales schemes. And so what we did from the very first day. So when we said, let's start a company in a crypto space, the very first thing we did was we started marketing for it. At the beginning, obviously, we didn't have a product. So what did we do? Well, we built educational content around this. We built curiosity around it. We educated people. And I think whatever you build today, whatever you do today, there's always an educational factor. There's always an explanatory factor. There's always something how you can add value to the customer and thereby attract these customers to you. Before we launched our very first product, we had over 10 ,000 people in the database to love. As soon as you go live with your cryptocurrency product, we would love to use that. And our very first service was actually a very niche service, which is those that don't understand cryptocurrency. Well, this may sound like a lot of jargon. It was a staking service. So a very, very niche, huge broad service, not an exchange or a trading service. It was a staking service. And we went live. We instantly had thousands of customers, our product. And I think that the reason I put this as number two is because some people always put this last. They always think they need to raise funds first. They need to have a product first. They need to have a idea first. I really believe it starts having a great partner first. And partner is like very, very important. You need to have that kind of time horizon. And then you need to start building a community and you need to build a customer base as early as possible. Now, for those of you that have a transition in your job, maybe you have this existing customer base. But for me, I'm actually a medical doctor. I come out of a tall field, wanted to get the chain space for building a medical blockchain startup. Couldn't do it, had no ability and transition into finance space, which is then cryptocurrencies. And that's where this lesson comes in of building a community, building a customer base first. That's why I put it as second and not at the very end, where when you talk to most people, what you do if you want to have a strategy or you want to build something, you always put marketing very at the end of sales. And I think actually it should almost start before you even work on the product. Just like what my book coach always said, start the selling with the first page you write. I think this is so crucial. Point number three is all around building that product that has... Find a product with a very clear product market fit. Now, this sounds so easy and many, many people talk about this. And here are two things I truly believe about this. The first thing about building a product with a really strong product market fit is you need to have this initial intuition in what the product is that your customers want. You are not going to be able to test all those things. You need to have some intuition about it. It may be an itch that you want to scratch yourself. It may be something that you have experienced a lot. Maybe you don't experience it for yourself, but you see a lot of other people having this. But you need to have some intuition that this is what's needed in the market. Don't be too scared about having too many competitors because many times people always feel, oh, there's a competitor doing this already. I don't know, there's a competitor for anything. For the largest companies, there's always a competitor. Obviously, you don't want to get into a space where you have thousands of competitors. But it doesn't matter if you have one or two or three competitors. So when we got started, it was all around getting cash flow on your cryptocurrencies. Until that point, until 2017, 2018, it was all about speculating on crypto. It was all about buy crypto, hope the price goes up, and hope it doesn't go down and you manage to sell at the right time. And using it myself, we've been in the crypto space for a very long time, almost 10 years now. So we were one of the lucky ones who got in very, very early. And we had seen those speculative bubbles over and over again. And then we realized, you know, we got so lucky so many times getting in and out at the right time, at some point, our luck is going to run out. And we are in this situation, like many others, who, you know, want cash flow on your crypto, just like in real estate. Sure, it's one thing to buy real estate, hope it appreciates, and then get out at the right time. But it's also, you just buy the real estate and you get rental income, rental income, rental income. And up until that point, not much was done to provide cash flow on your cryptocurrencies. And so when we started with this in 2019, there were other companies who kind of dabbled in this direction as well, but not many. But we heard this all the time when we spoke to customers or to friends or employees. They said, yeah, but isn't there this company ABC in the US? Isn't there this company Singapore doing this as well? And some might get discouraged from this. But for us, it was always, okay, how can we build a product that our customers are going to want to be want to have this product market fit? And then you try to reiterate over it by testing it on your customers. So there's a big, big difference how I believe most people teach you how to do this. You need to have an initial intuition on the product, and then you work with your customers to improve it. But the initial leapfrog idea has to be something that you need to have an intuition on. Here's a very great lesson I've read from Jeff Bezos several times. So I definitely know this is true. And you're probably going to find these clips yourself. And I just want to give you this lesson. When Jeff Bezos started Amazon, he had this intuition. It's a pure intuition that he thought people want to have books, and they don't want to buy them in bookstores. They want them to be shipped to them. And this was an intuition. Now, you're going to have this about your own product. And then Jeff Bezos asked himself and said, what are the three absolutely non -negotiable qualities that my service has to be like so that customers are going to want to use this today, tomorrow, in five years, or in 10 years? So what's going to be this inevitable truth that's not going to go away? And you can think about this. Like, what do you think about Amazon is going to be something that is not going to go away? Today, tomorrow, in five years, or in 10 years? And he came up with those three things. And I want to give him his three things, and then I'm going to give you that same answer to the questions that we thought about our product. So he said, people are always going to want more variety. I imagine cannot a world where people say, sure, show me, like, let me buy fewer books on your website. They will always go to a website that has a bigger variety. Now, obviously, you need to find your way through the jungle that's key with the algorithms. But that's a really, really key kind of lesson. The second thing, customers will always want the best price. He says, if the same quality, same delivery, same so on, I cannot understand a world where people are willing to pay more for something. Makes a lot of sense. And the last thing, they want super fast delivery. Makes also sense. So those three things are going to be relevant today, tomorrow, in five years, and in 10 years, because that's what people want. They want as many books as possible to choose from. They want the best price, the fastest delivery. Makes a lot of sense. So these are the key criteria that he built his product offering. Now, I asked myself the same thing. If people invest in crypto, and I want to be successful in this, what is the product having like today, tomorrow, in five years, or in 10 years? What's not going to change? And so I thought, okay, the first thing that people want, especially in financial space, especially in crypto, is they need to have trust. They need to be able to trust us. And then I asked myself, how am I going to do this? And I said, the easiest way to build trust is via transparency.

That means that our concerns should be prioritized by our leaders full stop We reject the anthem of neoliberalism of caring about other countries problems while our own country burns Interestingly I have used that sentence quite often our own country is burning our country is burning our country is burning Well literally our country has been burning the last week the beautiful island of Maui One of the the jewels of America It's burning now how the fire started we're gonna speculate. I don't think it's that actually that helpful At this point it might have been arson it was probably human involvement 85 % of massive fires are Human caused was it somebody that was trying to start the fire or not We'll find out as time goes on But what's interesting is that the reaction to the fire has been awfully perplexing. We were told it was no big deal We're showing some of the b -roll right now on screen. This looks like this looks like Pearl Harbor, and I'm not making a joke That looks like Pearl Harbor people in the water it looks like something out of a dystopian apocalypse film and It got worse this weekend as all of a sudden the quote -unquote metaphorical and literal dust settled we realized that the entire southwestern part of the island of Maui Basically looks like Dresden This is catastrophic damage Unfathomable Death toll we don't even know I mean we they're speculating a couple dozen people dead, but no no no It's gonna be a lot more than that. They're saying a thousand people are missing It's beyond comprehension So first let's just be very clear We need to be in an active mode of helping any way we possibly can our fellow Americans These are our fellow Americans, and I'll be honest I've not seen much about FEMA or federal response, and I have a theory about this And it's not it's not a theory that's going to make anybody feel good. I have not seen this massive federal action There are already 96 people confirmed dead Now Maui is home to a lot of different people the oligarchs of our society Jeff Bezos Oprah Winfrey Jimmy Buffett Marc Benioff from Salesforce Howard Schultz from Starbucks Now let me be very clear. There's a lot of People are saying Oh Oprah started the fire Oprah did not start the fire, okay? Just people didn't email me. I think Oprah started the fire. I don't think she started the fire. I'm not a fan of Oprah however if Oprah's property would have been burning I guarantee you the federal response would have been way swifter That I can guarantee you but putting that aside the The tragedy is real, but let's go back to one of our favorite questions that we ask on this program It's an old Latin phrase and it offers clarity We bono who benefits and That's a really sick question isn't it because no one should benefit from Fires that destroy entire islands there should be no beneficiary of Scorched earth, but if you remember tiny dancer Rahm Emanuel Former chief of staff to Barack Hussein Obama who became mayor of Chicago He famously said you can never let any crisis go to waste the response to this fire feels as if it's been slow motion and it reminds me of Dancing in the streets Hugging people saying it was racist to even call that you know the Chinese New Year remember Nancy Pelosi and we went from 0 to 100 on kovat not a big deal to this is the biggest deal Almost allowing it to spread on the homeland so far Remember when Donald Trump stopped travel to China.
A highlight from Is Elon Musk A Bitcoin HERO Again?
"If you use the four -year cycle, that means November -ish, October -ish, we would just be hitting $60K. So I don't know if we can go from $60K to doubling in two months or, you know, I think we're closer to $60K at the end of 2024. I like Bitcoin. You like Bitcoin? I like it. Alright, we do have a $4 .99 Super Chat from Corey. Cheers! Just put $2K into XRP and Algo. Love the channel. Alright, I feel pretty good about that two years from now. But if it's in the red a month from now, don't blame me. Blame that guy. Alright, no, we're kidding. Alright, Twitter partners with eToro to let users trade stocks, crypto as Musk pushes app into finance. Now, again, Elon has denied these rumors, but it looks like starting Thursday, he'll give users the option to buy and sell stocks and other assets, the company told CNBC exclusively. Maybe Elon is more rejecting the idea of the everything. But this is a rare partnership deal for Twitter since he took the reins as CEO. He's made it his mission to call it the super wrap here. They'll allow him to access stocks, crypto, and other financial assets with the partnership eToro. And with that, the cash tags will be expanded to cover far more instruments and asset classes, an eToro spokesperson told CNBC. eToro is founded in Israel in 2007, and it's an online brokerage that allows users to buy and sell stocks, cryptocurrencies, and index funds. Do you own any index funds? I might buy my first mutual fund. I don't know anything there. What's interesting here is going to be who ends up winning this battle. And you know, in the article, first of all, the first thing we should mention is the source of this information is a kind of sketchy one. We talked about him yesterday. It's Semaphore. We know Elon does not like Semaphore. He's one of the ones that outstid Semaphore when it comes to the situation happening with the Binance and now the U .S. government ordeal. But they are the ones breaking this news this morning. And they reference eToro and Robinhood because these would be the only two options at the moment unless Elon builds a brand new platform. These are the only two that would offer what's being rumored that they're going to do. And I have a question for the audience. I mean, a question for you too, Deezy. Which would you prefer him to use, eToro or Robinhood? They have their pluses, they have their minuses. I can't get over Vlad looking so much like a vampire. I'm just going to go with eToro off that very baseless and auspicious reason. Do you know the fees on eToro for crypto? I haven't. I've never used eToro, so I could not tell you what the fees are like. I bought Dogecoin once in my life. I went and got eToro to do so. eToro on crypto charges one percent for every buy and every sell. That's pretty rough. Now, I'm assuming there's a maximum, though, too, right? No, just blatant. You're confirming if it's a million dollar buy, it's 10K. At least you're confirming that. There's no on their website. Coinbase has the levels of like, if you buy this much, it's different. I think it's a $25 maximum. It just says one percent across the board. OK, one percent. Corey, he's going for the two years from now outlook. All right. All right. We have a video Elon posted in the wee hours of the night. This is about seven hours ago, maybe six hours ago. Let's play that thing. Do we have sound? Oh, yeah. I mean, he's just kind of chatting. Hang on. This is Elon having a good time. Here we go. Surprisingly cheap ceilings. Really? Hey, guys, you're on to welcome. He curls at forty five. All right, let's see. Not a hundred pound weight, Mike Kilmer. He's he's curling Zuckerberg's weight, right? Me, swelling of forty five. He did it pretty easily. Yeah. So there you go. Maybe he's working out, folks. Do you think Elon's working out? It looks like a video feature is working better. I think he is. I think he is. All right. Better than the sort of eight. All right. Now, yeah. Elon, he's he's definitely one of the the main memers of the Internet. Here we have a little graphic one app to rule them all as the X, you know, looks pretty close to the eye of Sauron. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. All right. Well, what are your thoughts on the super app? Would you like to have a super app in America or do you like, you know, everything kind of being separated? So it's less worry of a all out attack, less points of danger. Fair point. You know, when you spread it out, there's there's a little more security with that. But just think about the ease it would be to do everything on the one place. And I want it. If there's anyone out there that I believe that can get this done. It is Elon Musk. And if the rumors are true, because again, right now we're kind of in a wrestling match is is Elon actually doing this platform thing that everyone's like, he's starting his claim to be that one one site. That's the end all be all of everything he says before. He thinks that X could take 50 percent of all the financial actions within the next couple of years. I'm like, basically, that's insane. He's capturing the West. Yeah, that's how I read that. We chat is going to capture the right. He's probably not going to be able to make any serious headways within China. You know, they've chosen WeChat. They have backdoors and WeChat. Of course, the CCP is heavily involved in all WeChat encryption issues or lack thereof. And so I think he's going to try to have the super app of the West. Yeah. Now, Chad, who do you think is going to win? Is it going to be Jeff Bezos? Is it going to be Elon Musk? I think it's going to be one of those two. I think Mark Zuckerberg might really try once we have the Ray Ban ocular. You know, he's going to try to take over with the AR angle. I think by then it might be too late. And we're all just going to kind of be used to sending money with our phone. Do you really want to send money with your glasses and you're like touching the air like send Tim 20 bucks or the burrito? You know, I don't know. I think people just rather do beep boop boop and then send it with their phone. We're going to briefly interrupt this. I just want to give a special shout out to our sponsor, Steak. Big shout out to Steak. We love it. Elon does have the walrus move advantage, just saying. I mean, that is a tough move to beat. It's going to be I mean, it's a serious move. It's up there with like rear naked chokehold and the figure four leg lock, I believe, and the torture rack. It is up there with all those. Yeah, I'm betting on Elon between Elon and Zuck, although Zuck is very, very capable manager, obviously capable CEO. I think Elon is just a little bit more capable. And I think he gets the the the changing shifts of culture a lot better than Jeff Bezos. Here's my Jeff Bezos impression. That's a funny joke. Ha ha ha ha. And it's just it comes off a little unnatural. And Elon just seems a little bit more real. It seems like a more real human being. Elon would use the Elon would be in a fight with with Zuck and he'd do the oil check. OK, yeah, I can see that those who don't know the wrestling oil check is, you know, you're putting the finger, you know, dipstick check in the oil. Folks, it's like in Free Guy. Great movie. Great movie. All right. Let's move on and talk about Bitcoin. Most people want to talk about Bitcoin. Kelly Boy like the torture rack reference as Lex Luger, I believe. All right. Bitcoin whales accumulate. All right. That's two wrestling references. No more. Don't worry. Bitcoin whales accumulate. Fifty nine point two percent of circulating supply data shows. So the whales have 60 percent of all the corn post analysis revealed that a relatively small cohort of addresses is amassing a considerable amount of the currency circulating supply with a total of fifteen thousand addresses, each holding over one hundred collectively commanding eleven point five million coins. What is important to realize here? There's a lot of centralized exchanges. So you take out Binance wallet, you take out Coinbase wallet, you take out eToro wallet, you take out Jack's blocks, eight thousand Bitcoin wallet. Then it starts to look a little bit more decentralized. But, you know, a lot of people are OK holding their Bitcoin on a centralized exchange. I wouldn't recommend doing it in any serious, you know, heavy manner, any high percentage manner. But a lot of people like the convenience. I you know, I have a OK amount on Coinbase. I'm not going to chastise you for that. It's worth noting that the total number of addresses created on the chain has recently surpassed the one billion mark. Although out of these addresses, those with the balance are only around 45 million. Those most created addresses do not currently have a balance on them. Moreover, London based banking and financial services firm Standard Chartered has suggested that the price of Bitcoin could surge to 50K this year and then could breach 120K by 2024 is close. And another major bullish price prediction for Bitcoin. I don't know if we're going to go that high. If you want to, you know, rewind four years, December 2020, we just hit new all time high. We just hit 20K. If you use the four year cycle, that means November ish, October ish. We would just be hitting 60K. So I don't know if we can go from 60K to doubling in two months or, you know, I think we're closer to 60K at the end of 2024. What's your year in 2024 price prediction? Yeah, I know it's you know, you probably need to think about it a little bit more. I'm throwing it out there. 69K. Yeah. Well, the first thing I'll say is 50K is not going to happen in 2023. Barring we find out about Bitcoin ETFs within the next couple of weeks. That's probably the only thing left that would be able to pump it that high. And even that I don't think would do it. Those things take a while before the real money comes in. End of 2024, I think there's a decent chance that before the end, we might double top of that 69, maybe set a brand new all time high. But if we're asking December 31st, I don't know. Like I think we'll be wrestling close to that area, but I think it'll be a little lower. All right. Will you watch Zuck Musk cage match? 70 % are saying yes. All right. Bitcoin holdings on over the counter desk decline. 33 % OTC desk balances are widely considered a proxy for institutional activity. Still, caution is warranted when drawing conclusions. Those held in addresses tied to the OTC market. If you don't know, the OTC market is a whale wants to buy a billion dollars worth of Bitcoin. He doesn't go into an exchange and clear the order books where his first Bitcoin is $2 ,000 cheaper than his last Bitcoin. He's going to go to over the counter person who wants to sell a billion dollars Bitcoin. And they don't want the first Bitcoin they sell to be $2 ,000 more expensive than the last Bitcoin they sell. So they have aligned incentives. And so they'll meet in a park with some briefcases, you know, they'll sit down with the newspaper. I don't I don't think it works that way. They meet in a hotel lobby in Dubai, and then they like open up their balances, and then they do it that way. It just makes it where, you know, they settle on a price and they don't impact the markets too much with these large, large purchases. As of Thursday, the so -called OTC balance stood at 5 ,000 Bitcoin or about 150 million of the market cap. And that's a 33 % slide from the one year high of about 7 ,600 Bitcoin at the end of June. So that's going to fluctuate. High volume traders and institutions typically deal with OTC desk to avoid affecting the market price of the asset. For that reason, activity is said to reflect the behavior of large, sophisticated traders. In the past, some analysts have associated upticks and downticks in OTC desk balances with miners' intentions to build, run down their coin stash there. So just something to watch out, but I wouldn't worry too much just yet, just because it's down 33%. Really not too much when you're comparing it to the all -time high for the year there.

Elon Musk: A Good Sign of Free Speech Is Allowing Someone to Disagree
"Why is it that a Saudi prince Vanguard and all of the really angry unhappy people on television are going from not caring at all about Elon to a straight ten out of ten to try to prevent him from buying Twitter and turning it into a free speech platform. Well, this is why. Cut 89 Elon Musk explains this. Listen to it yourself. And a good sign as to whether there is free speech is someone you don't like allowed to say something you don't like. And if that is the case, then we have free speech. And it's damn annoying when someone you don't like says something you don't like. That is a sign of a healthy functioning free speech situation. And we don't have that right now. Donald Trump is not on Twitter. I'm not on Twitter. People have tried for years to get me off Twitter. And we've been suspended. Donald Trump has been banned. So here's how it works. Jeff Bezos can buy The Washington Post, Elaine pal jobs is able to run the Atlantic, Bill Gates can dictate global health policy, but Elon can't buy Twitter. It's because Twitter really has become a place where the most consequential ideas and mostly journalists get their stories and it's the top of the tributary. It's the beginning of the downstream effect. Is that if you are able to have a free and open Twitter, it will then open and liberate the conversations in op eds, it'll open and liberate the conversation in newspapers, Tucker Carlson, beautifully put it. It's where elite opinion is
Charlie Gasparino: How Is Elon Musk Financing His Twitter Bid?
"I mean it's kind of silly to speculate but it does affect Tesla I mean I sincerely doubt he's got 30 billion of liquidity sitting in a local Chase Manhattan bank When they say cash deal they don't mean like suitcases full of cash obviously How does he finance this Is it kind of what other people's money do or what's he doing I mean listen if you're worth on paper what is he worth 200 billion Yeah more Yeah more You'd be surprised how many how many banks are lining up to lend you money It is currency I mean I don't think the money is not the issue here The issue here is and by the way he could convert some of the stock He's that just looked it up 265 billion Got it so sick Yeah yeah They made the world right now I don't know about band of the world These riches America Jeff Bezos at one 76 then Bill Gates at one 31 So we're talking a billion A million He used to be a lot of money It was like the it but now it's billion
How Should Elites Treat Their Country?
"Treat their country? How should the people in charge of their country and the economic elites or in cultural institutions or in the movies or in any form of power? How should they treat their country? Well, a hundred years ago, Carnegie Mellon and chase, they were some of the wealthiest people ever in the history of the planet. Now there is no doubt that they were powerful and that they had wealth, but they used that wealth largely to try and preserve America, build hospitals, libraries, build YMCAs, build things that actually helped the well-being of the nation. They wanted a strong America. Now, over the last couple of years, a common lament from this program has been the fact that the people who are in charge of our country, the wealthiest people, are involved in this pattern of self hatred. They're engaged in this relentless pattern of not doing what's best for the country of engaging in ideas for the World Economic Forum, the suppression of free speech, woke ideology, the suffocation of the individual, we have talked about how people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and George Soros and the Google people and the Louis Vuitton guy. They seem to be so fixated on using their unlimited wealth to do things that actually hurt the cause of liberty. Not help the cause of liberty. That hurt the strength of America and weaken America. This has seemed to be almost overwhelming, especially the last couple of years. We've been complaining about how AstraZeneca Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna. They cooperate with Fauci and the FDA and Bill Gates and it seems like the elites have it all figured out. That they always have each other's back and basically the only thing that we have left is the truth, which matters and common everyday people fighting for that. We felt outnumbered and for good reason. We turn around and we
87-Year-Old Pat Boone Has Two New Films Coming Out
"You are starring in a movie, or do you say you're starring or your costarring? I mean, I met your coach star. You have a lead role in a movie. With Eric close, wonderful actor, Tanya christiansen. And even with a cameo appearance with Tom layman, the great pro golfer, and so yeah, I'm in high cotton. Am I in this film? No, we couldn't afford you. And why am I even promoting this junk? Scrap this whole thing. No, listen, I've never been in a film. You've been in so many films that it's just astonishing to me that you give out your age publicly these days. Yeah, I'm 87, I'll be 88 in June, which is not far off. And I've got two movies, well, ones on Amazon Prime, which has not had distribution. I'm asking Jeff Bezos if he would possibly put a couple little promos in there. So people with no miracle in the valley is on Amazon Prime. Miracle in the valley. Is that cool in the valley? It was caught. It was called boonville redemption first, and I think I told you about that, but it was another title, so you scratched it. Out of your memory. I scratched. Okay, but the film that's coming out now is called the Mulligan. Obviously, it's about golf. That's why I wanted to ask you how many years have you been playing golf? Well, yeah. I mean, it doesn't do me any favors to say that I've been playing 70 years, and I'm still no better.

It'll be the fourth human flight on Blue Origin's new shepherd rocket. Davidson will be joined by 5 other passengers, mainly business leaders who would otherwise not give a shit about him or care who he is, but will now all ask him what it's like to bang Kim Kardashian.
How Truck Driver Ed Durr Defeated New Jersey's Most Powerful Lawmaker
"When I saw the story. Did anyone watch the live stream last night that I was doing? I don't think I've laughed that hard my entire life. When I just saw this, I was flipping through social media and I couldn't control myself when I saw this story of this truck driver from southern New Jersey who spent a 153 total dollars on his campaign. $153. And as of right now, the election is about to be called in certified. He's about to beat the second most powerful person in New Jersey, the head of the Senate presidency in New Jersey by 2000 votes, right? And so and by the way, this is not even about Republican or Democrat. It's not about any of that, right? It's about wait a second time out. Like, what? And so I did some digging into this, right? I was like, okay, who is this guy, right? Is he a son of Jeff Bezos or like, you know, is he part of the Rockefeller family or was he born with some sort of birthright and so you look at this guy and his name is Durer, right? And yeah, you could laugh at the name, whatever, but you look into it. It's like if you were to have central casting of like what the normal American was. Now, some of you guys might not remember the 2000 was it 16 or 2012 president presidential debates of that guy that wore that like red sweater? Do you remember that? Then bone, right? Thank you. Guys, remember that, maybe not as before your time. It's like, I just want to give that guy a hug, right? He's just wants what's right for the world. So few people like that anymore. It seems in public life. And so this guy Eddie decides to do the ultimate David and Goliath type exercise. Now, I don't know how I'm gonna do my best to describe this to you. The guy he was running against is the head of the Senate of New Jersey, okay? It's untouchable. An example would be like if a random candidate decided to run up against Chuck Schumer, okay? That's just or a random candidate would just be like, I'm gonna run against Nancy Pelosi. This guy runs the state of New Jersey. Now, he was to give an idea, he's been an elected office since 2004. Some of you were born in 2004, okay? I know I know that because I actually just talked to someone that was literally born in 2006, not even born. And so this guy has run the state of New Jersey. He runs the entire political apparatus and machine. And so when you start to look into it, you're like, all right, how did this guy make it happen? So you look at his campaign receipts are like, did he get a big contribution from the pharmaceutical companies? Spend a $153, $85 of which was spent at Dunkin Donuts. And the remaining $70 was spent on flyers and materials and so they said, what was your grand strategy? He's like, I just kind of showed up and asked people for their vote. And so he was conducted in an interview last night. The first thing he said is like, I have no idea what's going on, right? The first thing he says, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn express last night, but no, I'm kidding. But all of a sudden you read deeper into this and this is an important thing is he ran because he was so disgusted and he was so upset that he is a truck driver continually kept this economy opening and keep going and he just felt continually insulted by the people in charge.
Episode 32: Top Five LPs From 2001 ...John's #4
"Years old. it's survivor from destiny's child and i will tell you why because i'm glad you asked. This album has some of the rock to that. Maybe you wouldn't expect me to be as a rock guitarist to be. You know jumping towards this particular album but the title track survivor. Which you've heard on the radio. A lot is a great fine crafted pop song with beyond say and and the team there providing that three part vocal delivery they do so well there was a it was a michael jackson tribute tv show. That came out in two thousand one when destiny's child was kind of a relatively new act and they did a live version of boot delicious. Which with real guitars at three guitar players and drummer and you know porn section. And they of course the beginning of that song has that stevie nicks edge of seventeen a guitar part that they lifted but they played it so raw. Live and i remember watching beyond say looking at michael jackson taunting in nevada to boot. Alicia vol bang right adam. And he's kind of taken aback. Oh beyond say it but it was. It was powerful. And all i can say is. I didn't have the album until i saw that particular cut of that special with destiny's child doing booty leashes and i thought this song pretty rock. It's it's a rock and song. Yes it's a dance song assets movement or whatever you want to say but there's a rock sensibility to it. That made me love the band and of course gone onto become a huge beyond say fan she just an amazing artist in totality. But this shows her some of her rock and best and if you followed her career at all you've seen like when she's done live shows vegas residencies whatever. She has a full band four guitars full. Everything and generally they're mostly female. She hires musicians to back her up on tour. So there's just too much not to like about this record survivor from destiny's child my number full
Bezosism: The Way Amazon Uses Tech to Squeeze Performance out of Workers
"You think your boss is watching you at work. Monitoring your every move well if your manager is a series of cameras sensors and algorithms. Then you're not wrong. And that may also mean you work at an amazon fulfillment center. The company known for the detailed tracking of packages and user. Information is also tracking the movements of workers at its warehouses looking to precisely measure efficiency and increase productivity wall street. Journal's tech columnist christopher mims calls this bazo schism named after amazon founder jeff bezos. He's got an upcoming book about it called arriving today from factory to front door why everything is changed about how and what we buy any joins me now. Hi christopher hay zoey. Thanks for having me so christopher you coined the term bazo schism. What exactly does that mean so. Basis ism is the combination of sensors and software to measure. How well somebody is doing their job. And then use software which has of course logic or an algorithm in it which was defined by an engineer. Somewhere to then tell that worker okay. You're doing a good job or you're not doing a good job or you need to be doing this differently. And so bazo. Schism or management by algorithm or management by software. At the end of the day it is just about creating a set of rules and then handing it to a machine to enforce those roles so the person's boss is software. Okay can you tell us about some of those metrics. That amazon is gathering maybe give an example of how one of them works so the primary metric is just the rate at which somebody is doing something so the amount of time it takes them to complete any of the relevant tasks picking items off the shelf scanning them. Dropping him in a bin is their rate. So it's a very basic metric. It measures the one sort of performance. That bams on really cares about

Thanks for having me so christopher you coined the term bazo schism. What exactly does that mean so. Basis ism is the combination of sensors and software to measure. How well somebody is doing their job. And then use software which has of course logic or an algorithm in it which was defined by an engineer. Somewhere to then tell that worker okay. You're doing a good job or you're not doing a good job or you need to be doing this differently. And so bazo. Schism or management by algorithm or management by software.

The united states of america like no way we should stand for a vibrant and strong american middle class. The american way of life is this. And we've lost this that you should not have to have both the mother and father in the workforce to be able to sustain a middle class family that it should be optional. If the woman wants to on the workforce but there should be jobs available and the social contract should warrant that of just. The man wants to work that they can support a middle class family of four to five children. That used to be the american promise. Now what happens is people either. Have less chiller right. Because they can't sustain it or the woman goes in the workforce. if that's a decision of yours phenomenal. it should not be mandatory. Because what ends up happening. Is they have to farm out.

NPR Tech reporter Bobby Allyn joins us now to explain the significance of this transition, and we should note that Amazon is among NPR's financial supporters. Hi, Bobby. Hey, what's up, Elsa? Okay. So remind us. Why is Jeff Bezoza stepping away now as CEO? Bezos founded Amazon 27 years ago in a garage in Bellevue, Washington, and this was a time remember when e commerce was in its infancy and frankly, many people that back then or even afraid to buy things online with credit cards. Obviously, a lot has changed since then, and Amazon is now the largest online retailer right in Bezoza, as we know it's the richest man on the planet, but, yeah, Beso says he now wants to take a back seat. So he's still going to have pretty sizable power at the company as executive chairman. But now he's going to focus on side projects like climate change philanthropy and his rocket company, Blue Origin. Speaking of in two weeks, Bezoza and his brother Mark will be blasting off to the edge of space in one of those very rockets. Yeah, um, I talked to Bloomberg journalist Brad Stone about this bezoza transition. He's written two books on Amazon. And so, look. I mean, this is someone who is obviously out to pursue his passions, have adventures and enjoy the extravagant wealth without compunction that he has accumulated, so I do think he'll be drifting further and further away from Amazon.

Hey, Joe and Chillicothe E. Thanks for checking in your on the Scots lunch. Oh, hi. How are you today? I'm good. I'm good. We got buddy. Well, I was going to you know, I don't know. Just something's on when people don't pay tax like your samba so sudden. That it if they could find a way to make that tax. They're not paying invested. Like you know, you have Jeff Bezoza didn't pay Take take 200 million. There's a lot more, but they he had to take 200 million and have even in the road after him, but a bunch of torn up roads called the Jeff Bezos wrote. Somewhere where it's reinvesting where he could take that money. But you know, you can make a case and say he is reinvesting right? Because if you hold stock if you hold ownership positions in, I'm sure Bezoza owns more than just Amazon, obviously, um, that he's out there invested a lot of things that you technically Oh, I mean, I technically own ownership, I guess of Amazon if I have Amazon stock, right, maybe very, very, very small portion, but still Have invested that money. That's what this is your taxing that investment. Um before it's some sort of gain is even realized. That's I don't know. How do you measure that? I agree, but it was on his case not to knock him. But he thought, you know, blowing out small business, not investing in the communities. But in a spaceship thing. You know if he took all the money, you know if he charges as much a ride that donated all that money to NASA. Mhm now that that's not necessary a tax write off, but he's making more money, which is fine as an entrepreneur, but you know, but as a salesman when I used to sell insurance if I bought clothes, I could write off part of my clothes because The star that paid the tax on the their sales. I got you things like that. So there's some ways you can Make Part of that right off have to go towards something. Something is Mike. You're reinvesting it in the communities. I'm sure his accounts would say. I mean, look, how much money do they spend in in Kentucky? How much money they going to spend in Westchester build their hub there, right? Yeah, Yeah, yeah. What should they already are? So Hey, thanks for call. Appreciate it. You bet. Yeah, I think maybe another way to look at this two man is is All right, well, I viewed the altruism aside. But remember, read the interview, but jet basis I think they were talking. They talked to his of all people, A girl, a long term high school, Or maybe this is college girlfriend or whatever. And, um, she said his entire being is about was about then and it is now and it's P has this thing about getting outer space. So you know, we tend to look at this is a rich man's file. It's like, okay, we've got guys here that are worth $150 billion worth billions and billions of dollars. You can't even fathom that kind of money They're worth. And so now they're just going to go. Well, I'm going to take some of this money and $150 billion. Who cares? You know if it costs me 100 of that billion, I still got 50 built whatever. I'm still in outer space. Nobody can do that. And it's a bragging thing. I'm not so sure. Because the bezels thing to me it's just the whole thing was. He has been so fascinated with outer space. Saying, This is the most important thing he's ever done going outer space, the most important thing even bigger than Amazon or anything. Now, given the benefit of doubt for a second. This is not just some rich guy buying something that no one else can have. He has been obsessed about this since a very early age, right And now he's an older man. He's middle aged, and he's gonna take blue origin his company on July 20th and go to outer space. So on that notion about taking this money and then you know, should be forced to reinvestment reinvested. In a way. Isn't that what this is now? Think about the American Space program. Think about the space race and what came out of that stuff that we use today we take for granted today. You know, started with Tang. And now now, you know, refrigeration, all these crazy things and modern premise that we use in our daily life. We don't think about a lot of this stuff came from what the space program. Because they had to do What Solve a problem. Okay, We've got a problem here. How do we solve that problem? And there's countless things that the space program has led us to that we use a daily basis made our lives arguably better. Some have been lifesaving, and it's because of the space program. So if you are now commercializing this for travel, What does that mean? Think we're doing the same thing now are we gonna do We need new tang. No, we don't need new Tang. But when you when you do something a bit different, and that is making this commercially viable now, the sudden we start, okay. Can we monetize space travel? Can we Are we going to? I don't know. Develop a space colony. A, uh Intergalactic hotel, something along those lines that may come out of it. It seems kind of frivolous and trivial. But now all of a sudden, it's okay. We have people that can travel and live beyond our own. Atmosphere here and outer space. And I don't think you know as much as we talk about this being Oh, he's worth all this money and He's just doing this for kicks because he's got nothing else to spend his money on. These guys spend money and outer space because he's bought everything here. Yeah, but I think it also improves the lie for a lot of just average people to down line, maybe probably generations from now, But you know what I'm saying is anytime you push the envelope like that, and this is commercial space travel. Things are going to change. Things are gonna have to be developed that we have no idea what we're going to be used in application in the years and decades and generations to come. I I don't think you can really put a price tag on that. So any spending his own money? Let's keep in mind. This isn't taxpayer money. This isn't NASA doing this. This is his money that he earned there is wealth. Um, So, yeah. You know, when we start talking about this Well, the class warfare thing Propublica has drummed up with, you know the rich don't pay taxes. Well, they don't pay income taxes, and there's a reason why They We don't tax wealth is because if you look at it, largely wealth is an investment in what other people's stuff. And someone may develop something that is just groundbreaking, right? And you buy stock in a company whether maybe it's a drug company, right? What? You're largely vilified these days. Maybe you're helping curing cancer. I don't know. But there's probably a reason why we do that, because we want to incentivize people to invest, take their money and put it another vehicles because it makes things better. But you know when they cut when you come out and say that it's a myth that everyone pays their fair. I don't think anyone ever said they pay their fair share. We know that the wealthy have been getting around the tax code because you can hire a lot of people to do that. That's part of the system. That that's a bug, right? Large corporations paying zero can tax is in a given year. Yeah, I mean, there's a lot of reports of very lower zero corporate tax. But you kindly kind of in this report ignored that that came from businesses largely spreading their losses out from the previous year, right? Or taking advantage of research and and tax incentives and things like that. That by the way, you know when you talk about incentivizing through tax breaks doing stuff. Well, you know, that's our lawmakers. Heck, we do that here in Cincinnati, right tax incentives for building places and putting things up downtown. Those are provisions in the tax code that are Passed through bipartisan support..

The bill has already passed the state Senate and the Gender Recognition Act now heads to the desk of Governor Cuomo. If signed, it would allow transgender intersex and non binary people in New York to alter their gender on state documents and other identification, so it matches their gender identity. Denise Pellegrini Bloomberg radio. The skyrocketing price of shipping goods across the globe may hit your pocketbook sooner than you think. With upwards of 80% of all goods trade transported by sea, you can look for higher prices for nearly everything this as global markets are already bracing for a rise in inflation. You can thank, soaring demand, a shortage of containers, crowded ports and too few ships and dock workers. Karim Ida is a senior investment advisor at Bank of Singapore. He's in the camp that thinks rise in inflation won't last because we're expecting a lot of the other factors to be temporary, as well. As you know, for example, the shortage of goods and because of the reopening to go back to pre covid levels eventually. That's why we see installations still anchored around the 2% target of the fact.

"Harper drew some attention this week when he was spotted at a gas station in his home state dressed like this Whoa! Looks like gas isn't the only thing Tom has been pumping. I think it's time for the Senate to step aside because this is obviously the world's most deliberative body. I got to say the most shocking part. This is that someone with a camera said, Hey, that older gentleman standing with his nips to the wind next to a 2000 and one Chrysler town and country kind of looks like Delaware Senator Tom Carper. I'm getting 75 cents from TMZ. So Stephen Colbert's talking about this picture that Sean gave me. So he is standing there, You know, they hadn't even have struck me. No, I'm not. I don't care what you drive, but it does add to it that he's he's standing next to his $10,000 minivan, a US freaking senator shirtless next to his old minivan. While he's filling up with gas. He thinks I'll You know I'll take a catch a couple of raise so he takes off his shirt and stands over on the sunny side where the van is in the sun. And just stands there with his chest out. He's like supposed to be like 70 years old. I mean, it be weird if he were 40, but like a 70 year old man making sure he catches you know, extra three minutes of sun while I'm gassing up the minivan could either stand here for three minutes or I could get some sun. Thank you Get my tan on. I could get dark. Wow, right on the street across from the Home depot. So he's a U. S senator. Obviously not worried about being spotted or identified or anything. That's odd behavior. It's just odd. It's harmless. Probably a little vitamin D while I'm out just multitasking. What's good point people would think it was weird if I did it If there was a picture of me like I'm getting gas and you see me take, you know I'm getting I look at my watch. I look at the tank and I take off my shirt. Go stand in the sun like this for a while, like a cat. Finding a beam of light through the window, right, let alone a U. S. Senator. It makes you wonder whether he's got a screw loose honestly, doesn't it? So movie past the idea was your bottom movie pass. And then for 9 95 months you could go to as many movies as you wanted. This was legit. One of the greatest times of my life. I had so much fun with movie pass well, and like I said, I bought one for my son and I remember at the time were discussing how can they possibly make this work that the math doesn't work launched in 2011? Geez, was that long ago movie past gained more than three million subscribers. Way more than expected. During the 2017 promotion, offering any movie any theater any day for 9 95 a month. That's when you jumped on it. Hush on. Yeah, I was in it. That's pretty cool. If if I would back when I could go to movies, any movie any theater any day for 9 95 a month so clear wind, So this was at the time when theaters were struggling, and their their business plan was, essentially, we're going to buy the tickets at full retail. And once we go to the movie chains and show how much traffic we are driving We will be able to negotiate down a better price point in the future. The movie chains eventually said No. They were not going to negotiate and they essentially went bankrupt. Which is what leads to a lot of this. Yeah, we get the fun parts coming up, so there are 450,000 most active users. We're really going to a lot of movies. And so this was the finances on this. We're not working. Because movie pass was having to pick up the tab for those tickets, right? They were paying full retail when I would pay the $10 month subscription. And then every time I went to a movie on the back end, they were essentially just paying full retail and then hoping, which was roughly how much do you suppose, on average? Uh, those tickets 12 bucks. Maybe. So they were losing money on every single transaction. So they started doing things where your password word word wouldn't work on purpose. Or you couldn't. If you went to reset your password, you couldn't you get network fail, you know, And I wondered about that with other companies. So many times now I'm even more suspicious. Now that we've got documented evidence that a company does it. It was like Facebook's thing. So you can you can get out of Facebook. You can quit your Facebook account, except you go to the account, and every time you go and try to get out of it, it's always you know, not available at this time or Busy truth, traffic or something like that. So movie pass would do that. Yeah. Network fail try again later. So when you run into that with the company, they might be doing it on purpose. Wow. Wow, that's funny. Yeah, it is. Well, they saw. I mean, like Amazon. You remember what a joke it was that Amazon lost money year after year after year. Will it ever turned a profit? What is Jeff Bezoza thinking? Well, I figured, OK, Yeah, we'll build it will renegotiate will make a mint, but it didn't work. And it clearly, never could I die, I thought but anyway You need to reset your password. Why do I need to reset your password? The guy from colonial gas company by the way, the pipeline colonial pipeline. He got grilled by the Senate yesterday, and he said, I had a complicated password. Senators were trying to claim that he had an easy password like Colonial 123 or something. He said. No, we had a complicated password.

It's known as Finn Sin, and then When banks filed suspicious activity reports with the Treasury Department. She saw them and gave them to the media. And now she's getting six months in in prison. So First thing is whoever gave this I r s information to propublica. I sure hope they find out who it is. Obviously, Propublica is not going to tell him but The government figured out who leaked those banking reports to Buzzfeed. So maybe they can figure this thing, too. And then hopefully whoever that is, will go to jail for a good long time. Because this is pretty outrageous. But anyway, let's just talk about the policy aspect of it for a minute. They go through, and they talk about how Jeff bazaars didn't pay any taxes in any federal and federal income taxes in 2000 and seven They talk about? He did the same in 2011. Ellen must pay no federal income tax in 2018. Michael Bloomberg did it. Soros did it. Carl Icahn did it. Even Warren Buffett paid almost no income tax, which is kind of interesting. Considering he's the guy who always talks about how he should pay more income tax. Um So you know, this is England. This is a pretty crazy scene, though, when you have people getting Getting tax documents from rich people and Telling the public. Here's the thing they are talking about. Federal income tax but comparing it to the growth in these people's net worth. Right. So Warren Buffett has a massive amount of stock in Berkshire Hathaway, which is, uh, sort of combination insurance company and holding company. And they own big, big chance of chunks of big, big companies they own. You know, American Express and Coca Cola and they own a railway. And they only look I mean, I don't mean they wouldn't all of American Express and Coca Cola, but they've got big pieces. Obviously, Jeff Bezoza owns a huge amount of Amazon. Bloomberg owns his own company. Which is private. Elon Musk owns a lot of Tesla and on and on and on. So what the what these people are doing. These propublica people is they are comparing the Income taxes paid. To the growth in their net worth. The growth in their net worth, and then they're saying Well, if you compare the income tax that they paid to the growth in their network, they paid some very small percentage in tax. But if you actually just compare it to income, they didn't pay a very small amount. Actual reported income, Jeff Bezoza reported 4.2 billion Paid 973,000,020 something percent in tax. Warren Buffett reported. 125 million in income paid about 24 million in tax just under 20% in tax. Elon Musk reported 1.5 billion in income. Paid 455 million in tax that's close to 30%. What they're doing is a joke..

About this report that, uh, you know, Jeff Bezoza and Elon Musk are among billionaires who basically have avoided paying federal taxes legally, I might add. Look the way I feel about this is the way I felt about it when they tried to hang the president on this, and by the way, how did Trump stay out of this article? I'll tell you how he pays taxes, unlike the mainstream media tried to paint him. You know as somebody who doesn't. That's how he stayed out of this article because he's not mentioned at all here because as soon as I saw many of the uber rich pay next to no income taxes, the headline I thought, Oh, We're probably going to see Donald Trump's name in this well, he's not 25 richest Americans have paid less than taxes than many others do report has revealed billionaires like Bezoza and Elon Musk. They're able to avoid paying federal taxes in certain years, according to the report. Bezoza paid no income tax in years, 2000 and seven and years 2011. And Elon Musk. Of course, the Tesla founder avoided paying income tax itself in 2000 and eight And again, the 25 richest Americans paid less taxes. And many others do, um, overall.

These guys are not dummies there surround themselves with the people who are going to make sure That they take care of this.
