Two of the biggest alpha males that exist are Devin Booker and Donald Trump. Is Devin Booker an alpha male? I yeah yeah have you I like Devin. I don't I casually he's pretty he's pretty alpha. Doesn't doesn't he uh date Kendall Jenner? No they broke up. See I'm really behind him. Yeah and all this stuff. Yeah he's he's a single man. Is Chris Paul still playing? Yeah for the Warriors now. No he got traded? Yeah he got traded. See I got we got Bradley Beal on our team now that we play as Chris Paul and he's been hurt so Bradley Beal might be coming back tonight. Chris Paul's had one of the longest NBA careers it's amazing. All right so Tyler people are mad. People are upset, they're demoralized. Yeah I think we've seen on Twitter I was just telling you before the what's going on on Twitter. I don't I don't have it's a war zone TwitterX .com and it rightfully so because it's uh we've got everybody is like astonished still this is like now like we're like four elections deep uh since the like people started paying attention and now they're like astonished at how how do we not have this stuff figured out and the RNC you know as a member of the RNC that represents the state of Arizona everybody that listens to the show knows that we've been the most observant and critical of the things that the Republican atmosphere isn't doing the right way and that starts with the RNC. You can't say it doesn't start with the RNC it has to start with the RNC but it's the NRSC, it's the RGA, it's the NRCC.
A highlight from Generative AI News - Anthropic, Amazon, OpenAI, ChatGPT, Bard, and Many More - Voicebot Podcast 354
"And maybe with Gemini, it gets even better. But I think it's like really competent right now. And so people don't talk about BARD as much. I think they have more of a perception issue than they do a capability issue at this point. As long as Google avoids social media, they're pretty good at what they do. OK. So hey, everyone, this is Game, the generator of AI News Rundown. We do this every week. We've done this every week since February of this year, just to like run down the top stories. Eric and I are writing a lot about these. We talk about things that we don't write about, all sorts of different things. But we try to give you a little bit of the story behind the story. If you're on LinkedIn or you are on YouTube, just give us a like if you haven't already. We appreciate that. If you're on YouTube, like follow us, like do a subscribe as well. We do this plus a lot of other things on there. So we try to try to bring more info to the market, things you don't see generally. OK. Oh, and we're going to do, we'll do winners and losers of the week towards the end. So if you're thinking of like who the winners and losers of generator of AI this week are, put them in the chat or just tell us you're here. All the all the other stuff, like get engaged. We love that. All right. You want to talk about Meta? You mentioned it very briefly. And like, yeah, it's pretty wild. Tell me about what's going on there. Yeah. I mean, essentially, I mean, you know, Meta has played around with this before, as I mentioned in the article, and it didn't necessarily go very well. But now they have essentially their own version of a chat GPT style assistant chat bot that's accessible through so many of their through their various Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and including their the Ray -Bans smart glasses that they have and their new the Quest 3 VR headset. And yeah, much like chat GPT, it's supposed to just be a conversational assistant that can answer your questions and handle everything from planning trips and doing recipes and things like that. But and it is good and useful, including, in fact, some generative AI images, image generation and other elements that are sort of tossed in there as well. But beyond that, they're looking ahead to this is what is Meta good at or what does it have a lot of its as influencers, it has social media. And so they're also putting a bunch of generative AI chat bots that are celebrity backed and, you know, they're making fake bios for them and everything. But the idea is that they're sort of domain limited in the sense of they each have a thing that they're good at, but they have the personality of a celebrity behind it in terms of not just their the image, but also the the character and, you know, everything from talking about sports with a Tom Brady created character named Brew or talking about lifestyle with a vlogger named Billy who's played by Kendall Jenner and my personal favorite, a choose your own adventure story guide. If you ever want to play that, it's his name is Dungeon Master and he's played by Snoop Dogg. You know, these are this is where Meta has an edge on in terms of consumer facing generative AI their for sort of parasocial interaction. Yes, it is. And this makes that parasocial interaction interactive, actually. And not all of them have all the features yet of the main meta AI system, but they will at some point have more. And I do think this is going to be the introduction to generative AI for younger people that has not been around quite, you know, the teenagers who are trying to write their papers for school, this is going to be the thing they do for fun rather than the thing they're doing. Exactly. I think that's that is an excellent analysis. I love it that you broke that down. You and I had not talked about this before right now. We've been too busy and we haven't talked to each other. I really like that breakdown. And I if we look at chat GPT, we look at Bard. I mean, these are productivity applications. There's like a business skew. It's not that you can't use them for your own for personal, but there is that business skew to it. And that's OK. People are doing that. When Dave Lamp talked about Alexa LLM, he said, hey, we're talking about like creation, not consumption, right? Everyone's talking chat GPT. It's all about like for creation, like doing images, writing reports, those types of things. And it was a really good way to frame it and say, you know, Alexa is really about consumption. It's about people using it in the home to do tasks and to consume media and stuff like that. And so we're taking this different tack. And although Facebook from time to time has flirted with being a productivity business tool, all these other things and objectively failed time and time again, they have a really big audience on the consumption consumer media area. And you and I talked about this. The next big growth in this space, we've already got huge growth, like on the productivity side, it's going to be these companions. It's going to be the entertainment use cases with LLMs, which are so much better. And that has got tremendous distribution. Like who's got better distribution than them? I mean, so in a role, it just seems perfect celebrity. Well, yeah, of course. Like they have that as well. But like it just seems like their properties really lend itself well to like not just having a great solution, but having distribution like immediately. And what's nice about this is they're not exactly just copying something and trying to repurpose it. They're trying to put it in their ecosystem. They're creating these new capabilities. Not that other people weren't doing it, but like there's been these other types of things where they just like surely just copy something that they see is going on. This is something we've seen some examples, ADOP in South Korea. Some people might say, hey, Brett, they're just really copying Character AI. OK, yeah, fair. But like if they're not, Character AI wasn't like in their ecosystem as much. They're on the web. So I think that like this is a good move by them. And it's not just that the it's sort of a quietly mentioned, but it's not just that they're paying these celebrities for their look or for their, you know, for something about how to create this character. I mean, by getting the input from these celebrities, you know, Paris Hilton wanted a whodunit solving. Yeah, yeah. She's like the Nancy Drew of this era. But because it's guess what? Now they're investing in it. They're going to be promoting it. They're going to be encouraging people to use it. And if people try one and they like it, suddenly they're going to try the other. Suddenly they're using meta AI system and now they're buying Ray -Ban smart glasses. Exactly. It's for the consumer. It's like shopping assistant, all these other types of things. I think it's like it's really good to get people addicted to things. And this is going to be the next one. That might be a core competency of the company. Elias Parker said AI21 was holding them back from being one of the biggest guys right now. Or are they? And I think the answer is it sort of depends on what you think AI21 is. So first of all, they are one of the biggest guys. Like the biggest players on the block. They're in Bedrock. They're in Vertex too, I think. Someone can correct me on that. So they have availability. Like the cloud providers pay attention to them. They have users and then they also have a very popular app, WordTune, which is something of a Grammarly competitor. I think they would say it's more than Grammarly. And I think that's fair because it's more like this cross between an assistant and Grammarly. But any thoughts on that? I think they are a big player, but I think like domain specific. They're moving into this domain specific focus with their application, but also with their APIs and some other things. And they just raised money at $1 .4 billion, I think. I think they have a very bright future, but they're not going to be open AI. Yeah. I mean, they have a $1 .4 billion valuation. They just raised $155 million. Yeah, they're part of Vertex. WordTune now is offering enterprise solutions. They've created their own LLMs. They've created their own APIs. They have a platform for building apps that the companies can use. They have a lot of products and a lot of solutions that are both for consumers and for the enterprise space. And I think that they're not open AI, obviously, but they are very much an alternative for those who don't want to go with an American tech giant as their provider. And they also have a lot of connections with not just with Google, but with Apple there. They were one of the first to make a Siri controllable mobile app. Yeah. I think that they're not going anywhere for a while, I would say. Yeah. And I'm glad you brought up Apple. I mean, I think that that's one of the things that might happen.
A highlight from BlockFi CEO and Former Colleague Continue the Crush of SBF's Defense
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Wednesday, October 18th, and today we are doing an SPF trial update. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it. Give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends, we are back to SPF trial coverage. And for those of you who are coming into this fresh or who just need a little refresher on what happened last week, the two biggest witnesses in the first full week of the trial were ex FTX co -founder and CTO Gary Wong and Alameda Research CEO at the time of its failure, Caroline Ellison. Now both of these folks were damning to Sam's case in different ways. Gary was bad for Sam because his testimony kind of showed the mechanics of implementing their fraud. He discussed when at various points in the history of FTX, Alameda's very special and privileged relationship with FTX was built into the actual code base. He also showed that it started extremely early, going all the way back to 2019. Now Caroline's testimony was damning because it showed just how much control Sam had over Alameda even after nominally he had stepped down from the CEO role. Her testimony also made him look like just an utter asshole, but of course being an asshole isn't illegal. However, the knowledge and control of Alameda is a different story. So after Caroline finished, the next big witness was Zach Prince of BlockFi. There were a few highlights. Prince said that he believed that Alameda Research was solvent based on the balance sheets that he had seen. According to Prince's testimony, BlockFi began lending money to Alameda in late 2020 on what he recalled to be quote very robust loan agreements. The loans increased in size throughout 2021 after Prince held a conversation directly with Sam. By May 2022, Alameda had loaned over a billion dollars from BlockFi and those loans formed a substantial portion of their outstanding loan book of between five and ten billion dollars. Now the problems began after the collapse of the Terra Luna ecosystem. At that point, BlockFi called in Alameda's loans, which were of course in part due to losses that BlockFi had sustained from the collapse of Luna. Alameda repaid that money after which BlockFi made new loans to the firm worth $850 million. Those new loans were partially collateralized, but Prince said that the collateral was stored on FTX. BlockFi also traded customer funds worth around $350 million on FTX and so in total, Prince claimed that BlockFi lost quote a little over a billion dollars in the collapse of FTX. That loss was enough to force BlockFi into bankruptcy just a few weeks after FTX went down. And while Prince said that at some point BlockFi might have still needed to fold, that without the losses associated with FTX, it was far from a foregone conclusion. Importantly, part of Prince's testimony was used to explain how crypto lenders worked. He noted that BlockFi customers explicitly agreed to their assets to be lent out, drawing a distinction to how FTX dealt with customer assets without their approval. Once again, SPF's defense struggled on cross -examination. At one stage, they spent multiple questions walking through BlockFi's due diligence process surrounding a particular set of loan documents. They appeared to be trying to make the point that the loans evidenced a failure of risk management at BlockFi rather than fraud at Alameda. An exasperated Prince had to remind the defense counsel that the loan documents related to a loan which BlockFi's risk management division had refused to make. Now more than any other testimony that I've seen, it felt to me like when it came to Zach Prince, the reportage inside the room and what the vibe actually felt like, especially to those who were sitting in the jury box, was really different than just reading about it in the transcripts. David Z. Morris, formerly of Coindesk and now reporting on the trial for Protos, wrote, "...one thing about today was that it was clear they were actually f***ing up." Now he expanded on that in a longer thread from Protos, quote, At the end of its second week of flailing, the Sam Bankman -free defense team took another battering today in court. Under questioning from prosecutors, former BlockFi CEO Zach Prince testified that his company would have been unlikely to lend to Alameda Research if its balance sheets had accurately reflected its loans to FTX executives and illicit borrowing from FTX customers. Prince told the jury, I think we wouldn't have worked with them because that's something that's not appropriate. Cross -examining Prince for Bankman -free's defense, Mark Cohen spent about 40 minutes attempting to chip away at that claim by walking Prince through a credit evaluation document. The document showed how BlockFi's risk team evaluated Alameda's balance sheet, specifically examining the risk of using FTX as collateral, in response to Alameda's request for more lending in August of 2021. The defense tried to characterize Prince as having overridden his own risk team in evaluating the loans to Alameda. The real fault, Cohen seemed to imply, lay with anyone stupid enough to trust his client. But after nearly 40 minutes of examining the loan letter, Prince informed Cohen that in fact the loan had not been made, with Prince in fact following the cautious recommendation of his risk team. Later loans were made to Alameda, but against much higher collateral requirements. This appeared to be an attempt to circumvent an earlier ruling by Judge Kaplan that the defense could not argue that weak due diligence was to blame for the failure of investments or loans to FTX group companies. Cohen seemingly hoped to make a similar point about the use of FTTS collateral, but simply didn't have his facts straight. It would not be a stretch to describe the moment as humiliating for the defense. Maybe summing it up even more actually was another tweet from David Morris, where he Today's said, episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still, too slow, only on for certain hours. Overly designed for some types of people, but not for others. Crypto, at its best, represents progress. It asks the question, what if? It invites people in instead of leaving them out. It's on 24 -7, 365, and moves at the speed of real life. Not everyone believes it. We've got our fair share of detractors, but that's the way it always is when you're building something new. Kraken is a crypto company that has been through the highs and lows of the industry, facing forwards towards progress throughout. And now, they're inviting us to see what crypto can be.

Next up, on Monday, FTX head of engineering, Nishad Singh, was called by the prosecution to give evidence against his former co -conspirator, SPF. Nishad is, of course, the third of three major collaborators alongside Gary Wong and Caroline Ellison, who are giving testimony under the terms of a plea agreement. Nishad's early testimony dealt with the expenditure and investments made by FTX. He confirmed that Sam was closely involved in directing all big -ticket spending by the firm. Alongside the widely publicized venture investments into Anthropic AI and Genesis Digital Assets, Nishad detailed a $200 million investment into a venture firm known as K5. Nishad said that Sam had attended a dinner hosted by K5, which featured high -profile guests including Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris' husband, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Kendall Jenner, and Kris Jenner. This was, of course, a party around the Super Bowl. After that K5 dinner, Nishad claimed that Sam said, quote, He was very impressed with their level of connection to influential celebrities and entrepreneurs. He thought it would be useful for FTX to leverage those connections, end quote. Sam later presented Nishad and FTX CTO Gary Wong with a spreadsheet that detailed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses and an additional billion dollars in venture funding that he wanted to pay to K5 and its owners. Now continuing along this line of questioning, after walking through a number of extravagant outlays, prosecutors asked Nishad about the infamous $30 million Bahamas penthouse where key FTX executives had all lived together. Nishad talked about the group apartment shopping together and noted that they had considered much less expensive residences. He said that after the group inspected the penthouse, quote, Nishad explained that there had been a quote substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's just super ostentatious. Nishad expressed his discomfort to Sam, who said, quote, He would pay $100 million for the drama just to be done with and go away. Nishad took this as a quote, pretty clear sign that I should shut up and we should move forward with this. Now separately, Nishad explained that Alameda accepted customer deposits from the very beginning even before the retail FTX exchange had launched. The earliest project was an over -the -counter trading desk. That system was configured for customer deposits to go to Alameda, which Nishad believed were then forwarded to FTX. Regarding whether Alameda was allowed to use customer funds for its own purposes, Nishad said, I didn't have an affirmative understanding, but using it would break common sense expectations from customers. Nishad then discussed his understanding of the allow negative feature, which allowed Alameda to run a negative balance on FTX and implicitly use customer funds. Nishad explained that he had coded the first version of the feature at the direction of Sam and Gary Wong. He explained that because Alameda withdrew many assets that they didn't hold, those withdrawals were quote, Necessarily coming from other FTX customers. Repeating what we all know, Nishad said that this broke with customers' understanding of Alameda's status on the platform. He said, quote, I remember affirmative descriptions from Sam and others that Alameda didn't have special treatment, and this would constitute a form of special treatment. Nishad also discussed the movement of Alameda's loans to an account where interest wouldn't be charged. He said that Sam was aware of the large amount owed by Alameda to FTX, but said that, quote, In theory, those balances are in banks. It's not something that they're borrowing in sort of the traditional sense. They're custody -ing it, so they shouldn't be charged interest. Let's move as a liability out of a location where it's being charged interest. Another part of the testimony had to do with the infamous FTX liquidation engine. During the height of its popularity, the FTX liquidation engine was spoken about in glowing terms. It was said to be so well constructed that it allowed FTX to seamlessly offer margin loans across multiple assets, which was a feature that was not present on rival exchanges. He said that, quote, Even in instances in which a customer account ended up negative, and the insurance fund, which is a sort of bailout pool of cash, was empty, the expected option for resolving the negative balance would be a clawback, but there was nothing in the code that would do that. Instead, the account would remain negative, and Sam or Gary or others would sort of manually handle it however they saw fit. Essentially, Nishad gave evidence that this fabled liquidation engine didn't actually exist. Then the prosecution moved on to the final months at FTX. Nishad claims that he only found out about the massive hole in Alameda's balance sheet in September once he was asked to help repair it. He said that Sam asked the senior executives to contribute their personal holdings of serum tokens to the balance sheet to, quote, Make it appear that Alameda always had more collateral than it did. This manipulated balance sheet was intended to be given to the CFTC. Nishad said that he ultimately didn't contribute his own tokens because it, quote, Felt wrong to attempt to trick a federal regulator. Nishad also recalled a conversation with Sam on the balcony of the penthouse where Nishad asked what would be done about the hole in Alameda's balance sheet. He claimed that Sam said, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. Net asset value is fantastic by almost any measure. It was super positive even if you don't include FTX and FTX U .S. equity. Nishad burst that bubble by noting that Caroline Ellison and Gary Wong had pointed out that Alameda had borrowed $13 billion and was unable to repay. Sam simply responded, right, that. We're a little short on deliverable. Sam added that the issue had been, quote, Taxing me some 5 to 10 percent of my productivity for this year. Nishad asked Sam, quote, What the hell the plan was? Sam responded with a variety of strategies, including selling off Alameda's illiquid assets, raising more money by selling FTX equity and holding on until FTX U .S. launched futures trading, which he believed would happen, quote, any day now. Nishad asked Sam if he considered cutting expenses, which Sam said he was working on. Nishad said he was, quote, blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed that five years of blood, sweat and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. And, you know, according to Sam's take, chances to rebuild this hole depended enormously on me continuing to try to make the company successful. And I knew that would require me betraying customers and employees. During September, while this was all coming out within Sam's inner circle, SBF planned a trip to the Middle East to attempt a long shot to rescue the company. Although the original plan was to put together a fundraising round for the company, Sam instead suggested doing a deal with Telegram. He said that they should buy $120 million worth of TUN tokens, which had been the subject of an SEC enforcement action in 2020, but which we're looking to relaunch. Alongside the investment, Sam had said that FTX engineers could build a payment network that utilized the token. Nishad said the plan, quote, made me extremely nervous. Getting even longer random illiquid tokens was not something I was excited about, especially when the cost would come from customers. Nishad also discussed political donations that had been made in his name. He said that FTX Digital Markets CEO Ryan Salem had access to his bank account for the purpose of making these donations. Nishad said that he was used to make donations, quote, for optics, advantageous that it was useful for my name to be associated with some donations, even if the end recipient understood they were really coming from someone else. Now, many people have pointed out that if the organizations or individual politicians accepting these donations knew they were coming from someone else, that would be extremely problematic for them. Finally, to close out the day, Nishad described work he had done to manipulate revenue data for FTX. He said that at the end of 2021, he had, quote, made transfers from one of Sam's companies to another to FTX to make it appear as though FTX had higher revenues. Prior to this, FTX had recorded around 950 million dollars in revenue for the year. Unsatisfied, Sam instructed Nishad to make these transactions to ensure that FTX hit a billion dollars in revenue for the year. The particular change was that Sam decided to charge his other company for staking serum tokens. Nishad said that he was instructed to backdate the transactions to make it appear that they had been charged throughout the year. Now, in addition to all these details, the other aspect of this testimony was sort of as a check on Sam's character. Sam had explained that he was friends with Sam's brother from high school and that Nishad had initially felt intimidated by Sam, who he viewed as a, quote, formidable and brilliant person. Nishad said, I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, but over time that eroded. Now, yesterday, Nishad faced cross -examination. And once again, it was not really that effective. A Slate article on Monday characterized the cross -examination so far like this. The cross -examinations have rarely, if ever, directly rebutted the government's severe allegations, which encompass wire fraud, money laundering and five conspiracy counts related to securities and commodities fraud, among others. More often, the attorneys repeat simple questions on matters the prosecution has already established before building their way up to potential conclusions that never seem to land. That characterization sort of held up here with Nishad. Matthew Russell Lee at Inner City Press on Twitter, who I can't recommend highly enough for the play -by -play coverage, characterized the cross -examination as meandering. Now, that said, Coindesk did write a piece yesterday called, for once, Bankman Fried's Lawyer Lands a Punch. The lead of that story is, Nishad Singh, a member of Sam Bankman Fried's inner circle, couldn't quite remember what he had told prosecutors about his conversation with the fallen cryptocurrency mogul and other FTX executives he said Tuesday in response to questioning from SPF's lawyers. The former Bankman Fried confidant's admission marked the first time since the trial began two weeks ago that the defense had seemingly managed to poke a hole in the case against their client, whose empire crumbled nearly a year ago. I think reflecting on what this testimony did for the prosecution, in many ways, it was similar to Caroline Ellison. In the same way, at one point, Caroline finally broke down and really gave the impression of a person who had been wracked by guilt with their knowledge of the things that they were doing. Nishad, too, sort of acted as a voice of consciousness in that he clearly had guilt around what he was doing, even if he continued to do it. You basically have this situation where everyone around SPF who knows about all these things that are going on is getting increasingly uncomfortable with the brazenness of them and yet is compelled or pressured by Sam to continue and just stop worrying about it. It really reinforces the idea that there was at the center of this story a central, dominant ringleader, which, of course, isn't really good for the defense. Now, the next big question is whether SPF himself is going to go on the stand in his own defense. There are hints that he might. In a Sunday night filing, Sam's defense team reiterated their request for better access to Adderall for their client. The defense claimed that Sam has been receiving a single dose before leaving jail on the mornings of court appearances. They claim this dose wears off by the time the trial begins each day, meaning that Sam has been unable to, quote, concentrate at the level he ordinarily would and that he would not be able to meaningfully participate in the presentation of the defense case. Their letter to the judge said that this lack of Adderall could play a critical role in determining, quote, the critical decision of whether Mr. Bankman -Fried will testify. Many commentators have taken the position that the defense has been floundering so far. They've struggled to discredit witnesses or present a coherent case during cross -examination. In fact, their performance has been so bad that some are beginning to wonder if the plan is to set up an appeal on procedural grounds. Alongside the practical issues with receiving adequate medication, in this letter, the defense have flagged one of the grounds for an eventual appeal. The idea that throughout the process, Sam has been denied his right to, quote, meaningfully participate in his defense. Investor Adam Cochrane certainly thinks that this is the gambit. He writes, PS, they don't actually give an F about his meds. They care about throwing out the trial. Vegan meals, lacking meds, weird medical hours. They'll probably try and claim some mental duress violating his right to compulsory process and self -defense. Does it work? Unlikely. But they want you to pity him. They want the jury to pity him. They want to throw every wrench they can into the gears of justice and grind it to a halt. Now, others were speculating about whether Sam could actually resist the lore of testifying in his own defense. Delphi Digital General Counsel Gabriel Shapiro wrote, imagine how epic it will be if SPF actually testifies. He could not even withstand cross -examination by Coffeezilla. Prosecutors will absolutely shred him on cross. Let's just hope he can be that stupid and narcissistic to give us one last show before he's put away for good. Of course, if Sam does make that last Hail Mary decision, you better believe we will be there to cover it. For now, that is going to do it for today's episode. I appreciate you guys listening as always. Also, one more big thank you to today's sponsor, Kraken. Go to kraken .com slash the breakdown and see what crypto can be.

Thanks for tuning in to the Unchained Recap for Day 9 of the criminal trial for Sam Bigman -Fried. In devastating testimony for the defense, former FTX head of engineering Nishad Singh detailed instances of bullying behavior from ex -CEO Sam Bigman -Fried and numerous times when SPF used customer funds to fuel his spending spree. Singh described an organization that allegedly defrauded FTX customers by freely spending customer assets on ill -advised investments, sponsorships, and political action, all at Bankman -Fried's direction, and a leadership style that browbeat and belittled anyone who disagreed with him or expressed concerns. Singh's testimony echoed comments by the prosecution's other two star witnesses during the first two weeks, former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison and former FTX chief technology officer Gary Wong. I was blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed. That five years of blood, sweat, and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil, Singh said. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. Singh, who came across as earnest and is having a strong conscience, told jurors that SPF continued to spend excessively even after learning of an $8 billion hole in Alameda's balance sheet that mushroomed as the crypto market slumped following the collapse of the I deficit. learned of the hole and even after that, implicitly and explicitly, I greenlit transactions that I knew must have been digging the hole deeper and therefore coming from customer funds, Singh said. Singh, who was Bankman -Fried's younger brother's friend and had known SPF since high school, was initially intimidated by the defendant after joining Alameda in 2017. But he lost faith in SPF amid his dismissiveness and seeming dishonesty to where company's financial management. I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, Singh said. Over time, I think a lot of that eroded, and I grew distrustful. Singh described his increasing concern about Bankman -Fried's spending even as the company sank deeper into debt. I'd frequently go to Sam and express that I thought that the spend was too large or that it didn't make sense, in essence, a bad business decision. And I also would express that I felt kind of embarrassed and ashamed of how much it all reeked of excess and flashiness. It didn't align with what I thought we were building a company for. Some examples of the excess were that Alameda had invested $1 .5 billion into Bitcoin miner Genesis digital assets in early 2022, as well as $500 million into AI startup Anthropic and $200 million into incubation firm K5, founded by Michael Kives. The K5 deal accelerated after SPF attended a Super Bowl -related party in Los Angeles with several top A -list celebrities. Hillary Clinton, Doug Emhoff, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner, and Corey Gamble. Singh said SPF described the event as, quote, the most impressive collection of people he had ever seen in one location, adding that the FTX co -founder told him that if asked, K5 could probably arrange an FTX dinner with Elon Musk, former President Barack Obama, Rihanna, and Mark Zuckerberg in a month. When Singh saw the term sheet with K5, which proposed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to Kives and his partner Brian Baum, as well as $1 billion for their VC firm, he was shocked. Quote, I was worried that partnering with K5 and giving them this much money would be really toxic to FTX and Alameda culture, that every day I was actively trying to espouse, I felt we all were, that politicking and social climbing was not going to be rewarded. And here we were rewarding people in exorbitant amounts, Singh said. He added that he asked SPF to use his own personal money for the deal so that it wouldn't affect the culture of FTX. Singh also detailed his shock at the $1 .1 billion FTX spent on sponsorships, such as the naming rights for the Miami Heat basketball arena and endorsements from top celebrities, including Steph Curry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, and Larry David. He was also uncomfortable with the spending on real estate. For instance, before they moved into their luxury penthouse apartment, Bigman Fried and his future roommates argued over where to live. The group had initially chosen a more modest apartment, but SPF wanted to check out the penthouse. Quote, Sam really liked this one, Singh said. Sam's a fan of views, and there was substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's super ostentatious. When discussing it with SPF, Singh said, quote, Sam said that he would pay $100 million for the drama to just be done with and go away, which I took as a pretty clear sign that I should shut up. In September 2022, Singh had a discussion with the defendant about the lack of collateral Alameda had to support its futures trading. Singh determined that Alameda was short $10 billion of what was needed to support its trading positions and relied on its $65 billion line of credit to make up for this multi -billion dollar deficit. Bigman Fried instructed Singh to transfer SPF's Ellison's and Wong's personal SRM tokens, which were locked, and therefore illiquid, into Alameda's main trading account. Singh said the transfer was meant to fool the CFTC, or US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, by making it seem as if Alameda had posted more collateral than it had. Singh did not execute the transfer, saying that it felt wrong. He said, quote, I was fine giving up my personal assets. I'd taken on debts and given up my assets for the company countless times. But I understood the purpose of this exercise was to be, you know, to fool a US regulator and to fool employees of the company. And I wasn't comfortable doing that. Singh, who was freaking out about the possibility that FTX would be unable to meet customer withdrawals, had an evening talk with the defendant in the fall of 2022 on the palatial balcony of their luxurious apartment, which featured a swimming pool and several lounge chairs. In this talk, Singh said he was worried about Alameda's NAV, which was his euphemism for the hole, and Bigman Fried responded, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. NAV is fantastic by almost any measure. When Singh asked how much Alameda was short by, SPF said, quote, that is the wrong question to be asking, and then proceeded to talk about how much he could deliver within various timeframes. Around $5 billion in 24 hours, substantially more in several weeks. And after that, quote, again, substantially more. At some point, Singh said, Jesus fucking Christ. And Bigman Fried said that his shortcoming of several billion dollars had been taxing him about 5 to 10 percent of his productivity. While Singh responded, he thought it would hit him a lot harder. The prosecutor asked Singh why he didn't leave FTX. He said he considered leaving the company every day, but added, quote, how could I live with myself if my departure precipitated a fall that might have been unavoidable? Singh details how he tried to cut costs of the company and said that at first he was, quote, pleasantly surprised and felt he was able to cut a couple hundred million dollars in spend. But further conversations with SPF made him realize that what Singh felt was, quote, an obligation was, quote, not being taken seriously since SPF was unwilling to cut endorsement and sponsorship deals that meant another $1 billion was, quote, headed out the door. After SPF returned from his Middle East fundraising trip, Singh, who so rarely met with a former FTX CEO one -on -one, said that it was an annual occurrence, met with him privately again, this time in one of Sam's apartments. After beginning by stating he was not doing well and thinking of quitting, Singh asked SPF how it was going with NAV. SPF, who was standing in the kitchen with his back against the fridge, said he could raise anywhere from $0 to $5 billion. He told Singh the main plan was to make FTX a success and said to Singh, quote, that depends a huge part on you. You're one of the few people, Nishad, that can take that kind of work off my plate so I can focus on the rest of this. Singh admitted he had been afraid to ask SPF for the meeting and said that he felt the defendant was, quote, very mad and that the meeting was tense with, quote, long periods of silence. Then he listed some of what he called Sam's tells for when he's upset and how SPF showed them in this conversation. Quote, puffed out his chest, hands back. He was grinding his finger, closing his eyes, grinding his teeth or tongue in his mouth. And when he opened them to respond, he would sort of glare at me with some intensity. I ended up apologizing to him at the end for asking for the meeting because I could tell it was so unwelcome. Singh pleaded guilty to charges related to violating campaign finance laws, which involved letting donations be made at his name even though they were funded from Alameda or as a borrower from FTX. Some of these loans were used for Bank One Three's political donation campaign and to fund his brother's political action committee, guarding against pandemics. Additionally, he said he participated in falsifying and backdating FTX's 2021 revenue numbers for auditors. SPF wanted FTX's revenue, which stood at 950 million dollars for the year, to be one billion dollars because FTX's revenue would show up on a spreadsheet that would be presented to investors. SPF proposed creating fake revenue backdated throughout the year from charging for offering staking services of serum. When withdrawals began to accelerate on November 5th, Singh became, quote, concerned that this might spell doom and the end of our fraud. Since he knew customers who expected full access to their assets did not know that they were not backed. Although Singh seemed to have a strong sense of right and wrong, even he ended up doing things he wasn't proud of. Around this time, he sent SPF a signal message asking if he could, quote, make some fictitious transactions that it looks like I had paid off this amount that I owed. Singh explained that he meant backdated transactions, which was, quote, something I knew could be done because Sam had proposed it once to me in other contexts. Singh acknowledged this, quote, felt wrong and said he wasn't trying to excuse himself, but said, quote, I was in different levels of having a right mind throughout these days. On November 6th, he said a war room meeting gathered in one of Bankman -Fried's apartments. It was attended by Singh, SPF, Ellison, Wong, Romnick Aurora, and by phone, head of FTX Digital Markets, Ryan Salem, who all were workshopping a draft tweet thread by Bankman -Fried. Quote, there was a point when they were discussing whether or not to characterize FTX as solvent or well -capitalized. I felt very uncomfortable with both definitions, Singh said. I felt neither was true. Singh leaned over the couch to say something like, quote, I'm not comfortable with this. I'm recusing myself. He testified. They acknowledged in a kind of annoyed way and proceeded. Singh had wanted to halt withdrawals rather than make a statement about FTX's strength. He said, quote, I'd overheard in the conversation opinions that these tweets should be really strong, which I understood to be a euphemism for particularly misleading in such a way that will quell fears definitively. On November 8th, via signal chat, Singh and Bankman -Fried discussed the fact that lawyer Dan Friedberg was angry and that Salem might resign. Singh then wrote, quote, they may need to know that it wasn't a ton of people orchestrating it. In testimony, Singh explained, quote, I really wanted Sam to clarify what everyone's role in this fraud was. I wanted him to clarify that I wasn't orchestrating it and that I learned about it really late. I wanted Sam to clarify that he was orchestrating it. I was certainly guilty for participating in it since September, but don't feel I made the whole. And secondly, I wanted the state of my relationship with these people I loved and tried to do right by, to remain intact and for them to not hate me. It was during this part of his testimony that Singh revealed he had been, quote, suicidal for days shortly after his direct testimony ended, meaning that Tuesday morning he will face his cross -examination. Unchained will be back for more recaps tomorrow. And if you like, you can also get real -time updates on my Twitter feed at Laura Shin at around lunchtime and after 4 .30 PM when court lets out. Thanks and see you tomorrow.
A highlight from GEN C: Restaurants, Loyalty and Getting $FLY With Ben Leventhal, Founder and CEO of Blackbird Labs
"This episode of Gen -C is sponsored by Chainalysis. Gen -C is the generation of the new internet. In Gen -C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer, and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship, and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy, and how they look at the hybrid, digital, and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen -C. Avery, we are back. Excited to see you. As always, I think you were in New York this past week. Didn't say hi to me. Not taking it too hard. But it's okay. You're a busy lady. Avery, there was a moment a couple of years ago where it felt like everyone was coming out. I think they were calling it life casting. And people were coming out with these devices that you would clip onto your shirt or they would dangle through your phone or whatever, and they were taking a photo every minute and uploading it to the cloud. There's a bunch of security and privacy issues. But hardware had a moment of always on. And then it kind of went away. And I was reading an article from our mutual friend Holland, who's over at Kindred Ventures, on the fact that wearable tech is back and it's back big. So there's now these pendants, jewelry you can wear, there's stuff that can be on your wrists. And it's all about recording audio, video, and image. And then having this sort of documentation of your life that you can then do sort of analysis interesting things, share it with your communities. And I guess I'm interested, Avery, in your thoughts of are we coming back to a new hardware renaissance? Or do you think this is yet another round of something that may end up going away in the long run? I'm so glad that you asked. In this box is a pair of Ray -Ban Metaglasses from the Reality Labs team at Meta. They actually just hooked me up with these, which is amazing. Shout out to Heart, her team. And they actually look pretty good. Like if you are just a normie, like I think these totally work. They just fit your face very well. They really do. It was like they were made for me, but they're made for everyone because everybody looks great in Wayfarers. It's really timely that you bring this up because I think we are entering another era, another pass at our can we make wearables thing. And the wearable of the Apple Watch is a thing, though I just read that those are declining actually. But there is a dedicated fan base who uses those religiously. My husband being one of them, he does not go anywhere without that thing. He loves it. And I think I've shared with you before, Sam, like I was at Google when Google Glass rolled out and I remember that whole campaign and initiative and Ray -Ban and Meta are at it again. We had the Snap Spectacles back in the day. I had those. Yep, I did too. The next iteration of these glasses, and I think these are one, normal looking, two, useful, and three, sort of fit within your daily life in a fun way. I think it's still for the early adopters. We are not seeing normal people really embracing this quite yet, but the early tech adopter crowd is back in it. And I'm excited where it's going. Theater has done some work on this initiative and we're really excited about getting these into the hands of more consumers this holiday season. Yeah, I'm super fascinated. I think that when Snap or Ray -Ban or even when Google was doing it, we didn't have as sophisticated a both creator culture, but also like a data aware culture. I think we're getting towards a place where it's not that these things are going to currently do what I would love, which is like all the contextual locative data that you want to see of the world around you, the kind of digital twinning, which is an area that I think is going to be giant at some point. We just don't know how long it's going to be. But I think if someone like Keith Lee, big TikToker, goes around and reviews food and like wearing some Ray -Ban spectacles where he can sort of live cast an interaction, it's like a perfect way to do it. Exactly. And they're actually designed for living in the moment. I believe that is the campaign slogan and sort of description. But it makes so much sense because whether you are like opening Christmas presents with your kids or you're at a concert and you're live streaming it, like all of that, you can live sort of hands free with these glasses on, which is great. I'm sure you've been to a million concerts where everybody's just like holding up your phone and actually living in that moment while still being able to capture it because we know that matters. Do it for the gram. I think it's actually solving something that is like a real opportunity for people to experience and be able to sort of capture at the same time. So I'm excited about this. I'm always bullish on these type of things. I'm hoping this is the moment when this starts to really take off. And I do think live streaming is a big deal. Not for me as a consumer attending, but more for creators because the creator economy is the economy these days. And if creators can capture their experience in an easy way, then they bring their communities along for that journey. And that starts to become really interesting because empowering the creators and shapers of culture is how we get mainstream people sort of participating in this type of thing. Yeah, I still think the thing we haven't figured out is the privacy and compliance layer. And I think that's the one thing that is my biggest worry. How much violation of personal privacy in space will happen on these. You know, and not to mention when you think of all the things going on in the world, making it easier and easier to live cast may not be always the best thing. Yes, I think that's a super fair point. My day to day life is not that interesting or exciting, but I could see this could be used for good and for not so good. And I think the other piece of it on top of privacy is also around the AI integrations and exactly how those will be rolling out. I'm not personally familiar enough with it myself, but we'll be playing around and getting to know more and more of this because I believe the integration meta AI is a core defining feature of the product. Yeah, I've been in a lot of chats this week about the meta AI characters that rolled out. Kind of Snoop Dogg, Tom Brady. Seen plenty of inputs on that. The sentiment in a group I was in last night was that hearing advice and companionship and conversation from someone who you have a kind of relationship with, even if it's just because you're a fan of Kylie Jenner, is better than getting it from a faceless AI. Right. So now to your point, you know, the creator economy, my favorite TikToker also now is the AI companion that comes along with me when I go to restaurants because restaurants are what we're going to be talking about in a few minutes with our guests. I think that there's something that's really fascinating about that and slightly dystopian, but we'll have to see how it rolls out.

A highlight from UNCHAINED: SBF Trial | How Sam Bankman-Frieds Lawyers Might Try and Win His Case
A highlight from SEC Punts ETF Applications Till October
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Friday, September 1st, and today we are catching up on crypto, on macro, on all the things. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Well, friends, the end of the summer, the beginning of the fall is here. We are kicking off the best season of the year with tons of catch up across both macro and crypto. And we're going to start with a follow up on what is obviously the biggest story and theme of the week, which is Grayscale's defeat of the SEC in their lawsuit and the implications for Spot Bitcoin ETF approval. Now, somehow, apparently some people thought that just because they lost in court, the SEC was likely to turn right around and approve an ETF. That of course was not the case, and the SEC have in fact deferred their decisions on approving Spot Bitcoin ETFs until at least October. On Thursday, the agency filed to defer decision making across all seven ETF applications that were filed in June, including applications from BlackRock, VanEck, and Bitwise. Now, even though they didn't make the decision now, that Tuesday publication of the court order delivering victory to Grayscale was widely viewed as moving the needle on the likelihood of an ETF approval. In the wake of the decision, Bloomberg analysts had bumped up their odds of an ETF approval by the end of this year to 75%. Still, they cautioned that their expectation was, of course, that the SEC would defer decision making this week. Markets reacted pretty dramatically to the Grayscale order on Tuesday, with Bitcoin pumping more than 7 .5 % on the news. That move has now been completely retraced on the delays, with Bitcoin back trading at around 26 ,000. One small subpart of this story that some have been interested in is that the dumping began around 11 .40am on the East Coast, but the SEC's first decision wasn't released until 3 .20 in the afternoon. Coincidental, or did someone have advance information? That seems like a great thing to speculate about on Twitter. The next decision point for the SEC will be on the week of October 16th, when all seven ETFs have another chance to be approved or delayed. Remember that the SEC is able to delay each application up to three times before making a final decision. If the SEC drags this out to its conclusion, they will have a total of 240 days to make their call, bringing us to mid -March next year for this cohort of ETF applications. Now, in practical terms, we're likely to have a better idea about how this will all play out by January 10th. That's the final date for the SEC to either approve or deny the ARK and 21 shares application, which was filed two months earlier than the others. The pattern is certainly for the SEC to delay. During the Grayscale application to convert GBTC into an ETF, the SEC took each opportunity it had to delay their decision making. Still, analysts appear convinced that the Grayscale decision leaves little wiggle room for the SEC to deny the current crop of ETFs. Three appellate judges found that the SEC had indeed acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner in denying Grayscale. They pointed out the hypocrisy of approving futures -based ETFs while denying spot -based claiming that the two markets had a 99 .9 % correlation. The judges further said that the existing surveillance sharing agreements with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which operates the Bitcoin futures market, quote, are identical and should have the same likelihood of detecting fraudulent or manipulative conduct in the market for Bitcoin and Bitcoin futures. And so now, although the SEC has been ordered to reconsider Grayscale's application, the timeline for that happening is still extremely unclear. Indeed, in an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday, Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenshine said he didn't even know exactly how this process would work. Grayscale isn't even clear on whether it needs to submit a new application. Now after this ruling, the SEC has the next 45 days to appeal the order. And after that time, the court can provide more detail on how Grayscale's application should be dealt with. When it comes to markets, they are showing an increased conviction that GBTC will successfully convert into an ETF. On Tuesday, the GBTC discount closed to 17%, which is the slimmest margin since late 2021. Since then, the gap has widened by a few percentage points, but it's still a long way from the deepest discount of over 48%, which occurred in December of last year. Moving on to catch up on the latest FUD from Binance, yet another senior executive has resigned. Leon Fung, Binance's Asia -Pacific head, has parted ways with the exchange. Fung's resignation was initially leaked to Bloomberg before being publicly disclosed, and a Binance spokesperson declined to elaborate on his departure other than confirming the resignation. Fung had been responsible for Binance's recent push to expand into Asian markets, including Thailand, Japan, and South Korea. But since he maintains no active social media presence, it's unclear when he joined and left the exchange. Now, one thing we haven't mentioned recently as we've talked about Binance's various issues is that they have actually seen a fairly significant decline in market share over the past six months. In February, Binance enjoyed 63 % market share and spot crypto trading volume, but by August that number had slipped to 45%, with the shift mainly being captured by Huobi and Poloniex. Over in the world of BUSD, its days are numbered, with Binance winding down the white -label stablecoin. In a statement released on Thursday, Binance confirmed that support for the token would end in February of next year. BUSD was of course kneecapped by New York regulators at the beginning of this year, when Paxos was ordered to cease and desist, minting the stablecoin. Until now, Binance had not officially commented on the future of BUSD, which was still available on the centralized exchange and Binance Smart Chain. The decision to end support for BUSD in February is in line with Paxos' commitment to end redemptions at that time. In a statement, Binance encouraged users to convert their BUSD into other stablecoins ahead of the sunset date. The exchange promoted conversion to FDUSD at no cost and at a one -to -one peg. FDUSD is a new stablecoin issued by Hong Kong -based trust company First Digital that was launched in June and is featured in other Binance promotions since then. Staying on the theme of markets, Bitfinex launched a perpetual futures contract for Binance's BNB token on Thursday as well. And over the first day of trading, BNB fell by more than 4%. Investor Travis Kling tweeted, BNB has been trading for nearly six years and Paolo and the gang at Bitfinex waited until today to launch a perp on it. Cryptoskeptic CryptoHippo says, Tether is getting ready to obliterate CZ, an unbacked infinite money printing machine versus the biggest wash trading volume crypto exchange in the world. I'm going to put my money on Tether winning this fight. Expect sudden price drops on the Bitfinex BNB perp. Now the biggest mystery of this week was a sealed filing that showed up on the court docket of the SEC's lawsuit against Binance late on Monday night. We have, it should be clear, no information about the contents of the filing. Speculation on Tuesday covered a wide range of theories. Some thought the filing could simply be related to a dull procedural issue regarding discovery. Others thought the filing might involve sensitive material gathered by a criminal investigation conducted by the DOJ. Andrew at AP Abacus says, Update, sources state that the sealed Binance motions this week are riddled with heavy, heavy claims. One source said, Given the natures of the issues here, surprised that we, the SEC, are taking this on, should be in the hands of the DOJ at this point. Andrew adds that he was instructed to go back and look at Bizlato claims and indictments and then add scale. Bizlato was, of course, a tiny unknown exchange that engaged in money laundering for Russia dark web markets. Some evidence revealed ties between Bizlato and Binance. When the indictment was unsealed, the DOJ treated Bizlato as their crowning achievement with a flashy preannounced press conference. This caused, of course, widespread confusion within the crypto community, who basically, without exception, had never heard of the obscure exchange. Now, also on Thursday, the old lawsuit between the New York Department of Financial Services and Tether and Bitfinex also saw some action. This is the case which was brought by the regulator in April 2019, with allegations that Bitfinex had manipulated Bitcoin markets and Tether's reserves were lacking. The matter was settled in February 2021, with Tether agreeing to publish quarterly reserve attestations over the following two years. The court retained jurisdiction in case the matter needed to be reopened at a later date. This week, the regulator filed a heavily redacted motion with sealed evidence attached. Because the filing is secret, we only have a vague idea of what it relates to. Unredacted parts of the motion appear to relate to accounting irregularities and deficiencies, as well as a lack of clarity around loans between the two firms. The regulator has requested that Bitfinex prepare an unknown witness for testimony. Knapp -Jenner tweets, Now, of course, Sam's involvement as a potential witness against Tether, against Binance, are likely going to be part of the rumors surrounding all of these issues, right up until the moment it's either proven true or proven not true. Still, with that, let's shift over for a moment to the macro side of the house. Tuesday's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showed cracks beginning to open up in what has been a surprisingly robust labor market. Nick Timaros, the chief economics correspondent at the Wall Street Journal, wrote, This is a JOLTS report the Fed will be pleased to see. Basically, this July, JOLTS report indicated that job openings across the US had decreased to 8 .8 million from 9 .17 million in June. This marks the sixth month of declines in open positions over the past seven months and the lowest level since March of 2021. Compounding the story of a softening labor market, June's job openings number was massively revised. When first reported, the data showed almost 9 .6 million open rolls across the labor market. That means the Fed is now looking at data that shows around 800 ,000 fewer job openings than the data available last month. Importantly, job openings has been frequently referenced as Fed Chair Jerome Powell's favorite metric for gauging the tightness of the labor market. The collapse in job openings over this year and accelerating into the summer should give the Fed some confidence that their policies are beginning to bring supply and demand for workers back into alignment. There are now just 1 .5 job openings for every unemployed worker. That ratio peaked above two during May of last year. This means that by this metric, the labor market is now at its weakest point in almost two years. Now this morning, we also got the non -farm payrolls report for August, and Bloomberg summed it up with an article titled US Jobs Report Signals Smooth Downshift in Labor Market. TLDR, employers in August added 187 ,000 jobs, slightly higher than the 170 ,000 anticipated. In addition to that, hundreds of thousands more joined the labor force, with a growing number unable to find work right away. As Bloomberg puts it, quote, combined with wage growth running at the slowest pace since early last year, the data illustrate why Americans are a little less upbeat about the job market. While hiring and incomes are still firm enough to bolster consumer spending, job openings have retreated and layoffs are picking up. This Bloomberg says gives the Fed room to pause interest rates later this month while keeping their options open for another rate hike before the end of the year. And that's basically what traders are anticipating, at least when it comes to September. Over in GDP land, US GDP for Q2 was revised on Wednesday down to a fairly middling 2 .1%. The second GDP estimate report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis trimmed the forecast down from 2 .4 % in the advanced estimate. Both household spending and gross domestic income rose for the quarter, with GDI reversing a negative trend over the previous two quarters. This metric typically tracks GDP closely, but a pretty significant gap has opened up over the past three quarters. Now, while the GDP number isn't stellar, it's also far from the recessionary conditions that were forecast for this year in late 2022. An almost consensus opinion among economics had the US hurtling towards a recession in the latter half of this year. So far, there are few signs that a recession will actually materialize. One of the most telling data points that indicates the US may be on track to avoid a recession has been the Atlanta Fed's GDP Now forecast. The estimate has Q3 GDP coming in at a blisteringly hot 5 .6 % currently, which is far above the blue chip consensus forecast, which was last reported at 1 .7 % in early August. Now, pretty interestingly, some economists believe that blockbuster entertainment consumption has provided a significant boost to Q3 GDP. Bloomberg economists wrote in a note this week that the combination of tours from Taylor Swift and Beyonce, as well as the dual hit movies Barbie and Oppenheimer, are believed to have added 8 .5 billion to GDP this quarter. Still, the note recognized that the economic strength driven by these cultural phenomenon is short -lived. The note said, A large chunk of the strength comes from temporary factors. These factors create a mirage of resilient consumption when in fact it's running out of steam. So, overall, it feels like the data are showing a leveling off across the board. Nothing is great, but nothing is also dramatically bad. The big question is whether this is moderation into a soft landing or something more of an inflection point. From the Fed's perspective, it certainly doesn't suggest anything alarming that would justify another September hike, but also nothing that would knock them out of the pause stance into actually considering cuts. The bigger questions are what happens in Q4, as things like student loans restart, employer retention credit might get repealed, and of course, Taylor Swift leaves the country. Just some of the things to watch as we move into this fall season, but for now, I am going to send you off into Labor Day weekend, full of brightness, optimism, and all the possibility that September brings.

So that's why my roster is You know what it is today and i'm super blessed and grateful Absolutely. Now I have to just you know, can you I you know, tell us a few drop a couple of names You know, we have to live On the show glenn. I always I always have to list them I always have to list them by most recently so that I can remember but um, timmy swinney who's on euphoria Has been a client of mine as of most recently kourtney kardashian Kylie jenner megan fox rita ora um shane mitchell I mean i've been doing this for quite some time now hair for 10 years and celebrities for about four or five So the list has gone long, but those are my most recent That's a mega list It just reminds me. I always used to chat with people out on the west coast as well who? Always work with celebrities like yourself. Just the biggest of the biggest And i've always wanted to know Yeah, uh what that you know must feel like and all of that but you know This is quite an honor for us to have you on the broadcast So, what do you say to all these wonderful? Stylists who would like to be celebrity celebrity stylists. I get this all the time on the show This is really what the goal is out there in case you didn't know Really? So what do you say? Yeah, I mean, I think it's it's the same thing I really wanted when I first started in this industry and it's um, you know to to be working with the rich and famous and I think the biggest tip that I can really tell people is Continuing education. I think it's one of the most important things you can do for your career I think cosmetology school is such a small part of the grand scheme of knowledge that you really need to know So making sure that you're investing all of the money that you're making because as a stylist I feel like you make money very quickly and it's very easy to get enthralled in the lifestyle But it's important to take that money and really put it towards continuing education To make sure that your skill set is what it needs to be I remember when I first moved to la and people would refer me to celebrity clients. It was um, You know I thought I was prepared and then I got thrown into it And I didn't have extensions in my kit and I didn't have certain products in my kit that were essential And I remember this one makeup artist telling me like i'm never referring you to anyone again because you're not prepared to do this You're not that good And so that whole year I really focused on my craft. I focused on the products that were in my kit And I focused on getting you know, a well -rounded kit full of extensions and wigs And I think that's really what made me the hairstylist I am today is really, you know starting And realizing that I had more to learn
A highlight from "Tory Lanez Gets 10 Years ..Wayne Brady Comes Out As Pansexual..Ciara & Russell Having 3rd Child....
"Welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. This is the weekly recap. Let's talk about what happened this week. The big trending news stories. Rapper Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison. This was on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court for the shooting of Meg Thee Stallion. This was back in 2020. Last December, Tory Lanez was found guilty of shooting Megan in party at the home of celebrity Kylie Jenner. Lanez spoke for several minutes at Tuesday's sentencing. He described the victim as his friend, someone I still care about dearly to this day regardless of her feelings about him. He talked about bonding with Meg Thee Stallion over the loss of their mothers. Meg Thee Stallion did not appear in court for the sentencing, but she did issue a written statement saying for once the defendant must be forced to face the full consequences of his heinous actions and face justice. When the shooting occurred, Meg and Lanez left the party along with a friend of hers and his bodyguard. The artist got into an argument in the car. Tory began shooting at her feet when she got out of the vehicle. She was hospitalized and Wayne Brady is opening up about his sexuality revealing to people that he is actually pansexual. The Let's Make a Deal host said that he initially couldn't settle on a label for his sexuality. Nothing that bisexuality could truly describe how he felt. Well basically he was saying that being bisexual that term did not truly describe how he felt. The 51 year old says he's bisexual with an open mind. To be clear pansexual is defined as being attracted to a person regardless of their sex or gender. So Wayne Brady to me has come out as gay. He's basically a gay man who says that he's pansexual. If you are attracted to both males and females technically you're bisexual. So just to be clear but good for him living his truth. I don't have anything to say about that. I think Wayne Brady is a talented guy. I like watching his shows that he hosts. I think he's a very gregarious very charismatic host but you know living his truth and that's what we're Superstar vocalist Sierra has announced that her and Denver Broncos hubby Russell Wilson are expecting their third child together and their fourth child all together. So this will be their third child together and their fourth child all together. The couple shared the exciting news via a video announcement on Instagram filmed by the NFL star on the couple's anniversary trip to Japan last month. The baby on the way joins three -year -old son I think his name is Nguyen and the daughter her name is Sienna Princess. She's six. Sierra is also mom to future Zaire. He is nine who she shares with the rapper Future. Now Neo is addressing comments that he made about gender identity and allowing children to interview released on August the 5th 2023. Neo initially raised eyebrows during an interview over the weekend with Gloria Velez on Vlad TV in which he said he was you know he had no issue with the LGBTQ community but he questioned gender identity. I just personally come from an era where a man was a man and a woman was a woman and that you know that's just how I rock there were just two genders you know and that's how it was now you can identify as a goldfish this is what he said if you feel like it I don't care that ain't my business it becomes my business when you try to make me play the game with you. Neo who has seven kids also spoke out about what he has seen as a change in regards to how parents raise their kids. I feel like parents have almost forgotten what the role of the parent is it's like okay if your little boy comes to you and says daddy I want to be a girl and you just let him rock with that he's five he said if you let this five -year -old decide to eat candy all day he's gonna do just that when did it become a good idea to let a five -year -old or six -year -old or even a twelve -year -old make a life -changing decision for themselves he cannot drive a car yet but he can decide his sex.
Larry Elder: Not Focusing on Saying Bad Things About Trump or DeSantis
"What do you make of Ron DeSantis as a presidential candidate? I mean, is he a viable challenger to president Trump and de Larry elder? By the way, my website is going to for president dot com elder for president dot com. Elder for president dot com. Sorry about that. Got the wrong one. Elder for president. Let's get that right. My producer is fired. Done. But I ran for governor Michael. I did not say one negative thing about any of my Republican rivals. Not Caitlyn Jenner, not Kevin faulkner, the two term mayor of San Diego. That's the candidate that Kevin McCarthy and the Republican congressional delegation in California wanted. I said not one word about John Cox. He's a guy that Gavin Newsom ran against in 2018. I did not say a single negative thing about any of them. When they tried to get me to do that, I said, look, the issue is not cost. The issue is not Caitlyn Jenner, the issue is Gavin Newsom, the way he shut down the state. In a more severe way than did anybody else? The issue is the fact that people are even California for the first time in a 170 years. The issue is that we're spending more money paying through 12 than ever before with our scores near the bottom. It's just homelessness. So you choose crime. And if we had focused if my opponents had focused that way, then maybe just maybe the first part of the ballot, which is the one revenue some out would have succeeded, and you'd be talking to me from Sacramento. So I intend to do the same thing here. I'm not going to bash Donald Trump. He's had a extraordinary president. He's got a strong record to run on. I think Ronda and his has been an amazing governor of Florida, has a strong record to run on. We should be celebrating the fact we have such a deep, deep bench. Again, I'm auditioning to the American people. Do you think that I am somebody who can carry the American first flag and who is somebody that you feel that you could vote, not hold your nose and vote with happily vote for so we can carry the day in November 2024.
Jenner's OT goal lifts Blue Jackets over Islanders 5-4
"The blue jacket slowed the islanders playoff push with a 5 four overtime win against New York. Columbus blew a four two lead in the third period, but wanted on Boone Jenner's power play goal 40 seconds into OT. The jacket searched ahead in the second period on goals by Liam foudy, Kent Johnson and Eric Robinson. Macau pal Mary sparked the islanders come back early in the third period. We're going to try and salvage a point and thought we maybe left another one on the table there. Brock Nelson notched his second goal of the night, giving the islanders a much needed point. New York is three points ahead of the penguins for the first wild card slot and four ahead of the Panthers. I'm Dave ferry.

You can smell it. We're gonna get you a bite. All right. But until we get that food, Hollywood's biggest stars hit up the dolce and gabbana show in Italy over the weekend and all eyes were on the ladies who sat front and center. Helen Mirren, like the queen, she is in a hand painted gown. Wow. Drew Barrymore, gorgeous in this pink and red. And Heidi Klum came in hot in this jewel jumpsuit who was your favorite. Oh, oh God, I think that they're all so appropriate for their personalities. Like drew could not have had anything more perfect for her. That is when I think of drew, I think, of flowers and daisy. Flower films and joy. The makeup line all thing. It's very her. And Helen Mirren, oh gosh, you could just, I mean, she is gold. I want to be left out, but Mariah Carey, giving us the old school curls. Clam on point. Honey. Mariah made it a family a fair honey. She was in this tiled custom gown with The Crown and she finished off her look with her twins, Monroe and Moroccan, who had fun with their own little fashion show. But it got a little promoted. How cute are they? Could you imagine though, this is your life that you are able to, you know, go to Italy, your mom is a guest that has been designed for. Also, what is it like to get that call? Dolce gabbana would like you to be a hand one of the handful of celebrities that they're making a custom gown for at their hot couture. Let me tell you something. You come out of a coma, honey. I'm sure you come out of a coma. And you show up at the show. I gotta say, once the hour shows up, she shows up and kills it. But the fact that you showed up looking like this while she had her three kids with her. Yeah. Okay. Let me know that she has got everything under control. And she's making a jump, okay? See, when you talk about dressing, alike with your partner, this is what I mean. This is nice. This is coordinated. Yes. But not too much. It's not much so gorgeous. Glam. You're part of the same story. Yes. Yes. Yes. It's a Christmas photo. The family Christmas photo right here. Very expensive one, 'cause it's couture. Now, if I was anybody, you know what I'm single? I'm in these streets. I would make it a date night. If I was invited to the dolce and gabbana show just like Kris Jenner did with her man Corey gamble, honey. Now Corey gamble showed up in this seat bone green suit. And I was here for it. Thank you, chef. Oh yeah. Oh my gosh. Oh, thank you. I want to pass it down. I don't have seafood somewhere. I'll have yours. Yeah, you have enjoyed the let me tell you something. Kris Jenner really knows how to make a splash with fashion. She's not going to be outdone by her kids. You know, she has a way of her own. She's a woman of a certain age where she doesn't let her that stop or from trying new things when it comes to fashion. And I don't know if Corey came with a lot of style, but he certainly has a lot of style he might have already. He's here for it. But he's definitely here for he's here for it. He understands the assignment and Kris Jenner is just gorgeous. This is delicious. I didn't hear a word you said. We are, listen to them. Talking about Kris Jenner while eating sophisticated fish. This warfare? Yeah. You don't need to get these meals. I'm done. That looks amazing. I'm done. You guys, I'm gonna go finish eating this. You do not want to miss tomorrow, show some set that DVR now.

"At 18. Can you imagine someone asking you that? Are you asking someone that? Oh, I've been asked that in interviews. Really? Really? Oh yeah. If you have kids with somebody and you're not married yet or they're like, so, you know, you're going to get married and make it legitimate. We get in your life. I don't know what it might be in the eye, make it legitimate right now. Yes. So yeah, like, yeah, I mean, that's surprising. I feel like Martha kind of slut shame the Kardashians. Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. Martha is like Barbara. It's like Oprah. Right. It's like Diane Sawyer. Yeah. There's an age and experience that makes you like, your grandmother can ask you some of the wildest questions that nobody else can ask because she did her time. Martha did 5 years in the pinch. She got out the finish. Oh, I was crocheting. I was teaching yoga. Cooking classes. She is not hiding from her past. So I think Martha asked the question that most 80 year olds would ask to their friends, how do you feel about your daughter not marrying them? You know what I mean? And I also think I also think like as you as I mean as a woman, you get older, and you're like, oh, I'm just going to say whatever savage. That's getting older. This is kind of true. Yeah. 20 more years. You can say, ask, don't be lit up by me. You already asking things that you should not be asking. Yes, but you wait 20 more years. This is going to be all bad. I was married now. So I was very. Like, what is going on? But you know what? Also, I think that they know each other that they're Friends. So there's a level of comfortability. I don't think we wouldn't ask that type of question on this show of someone like that. But also, it's modern times. People not getting married. Women have more freedom and sexual freedom. So yeah, we're not getting married to the first person that knock us up. Yeah, that's your tradition. Right now, it's a modern day. 100%, I want to see Martha talk about these pronouns. I would like to see Martha tackle. Yeah, modern things. And really give her opinion on it because unfortunately, there are people that are still stuck in 1940 and Martha Stewart is not afraid to ask those questions, but she's a little stuck in the sense. Right. You know what's cool? Like, we can't have everybody in the future, but we would like for you to come. She needs to call snoop and be like, how are you? How do you do it? Yeah, how do we do it? I can't tell you how the greatest story ever. Oh, Christian, and I'm so sorry. I went to a wedding one time, and this was like right when Chris and Bruce broke up and she just started dating Corey gamble. Okay. Okay. And we had this fancy wedding in Malibu. It's a reception. It's in the back of like, you know, somebody's York. Oh, spill that tea. And all of a sudden, she walks in and she's like, in this black moment, these big diamond earrings, birkin bag, and behind her walks this like hot black dude chains, Nike shorts, Jordans on it, and it's Corey gamble, but at this point, no one knew about Corey gamble. And to watch all the bougie ladies from Beverly Hills, all the accuracy. Like break their necks. Hell, what's going on? Because like, you know, when somebody goes from Bruce, Jenner Tory gamble, it's a big shot, but what I think is happening is her daughters are starting to rub off on her and showing her that she can find love in a younger place and a different place. In a different area. And opening her mind up to other things because she was probably. Yeah, because they're not married. I mean, her and Kourtney. They think shacking up and whatever you know. Living in Seattle. You know what I mean? But it's like, it's modern times and it's actually is for women to decide who they want to be with. How they want to be with. You got to take care of the babies. I think sometimes your kids teach you. I mean, your kids are your biggest teachers. You know, I know I've taught my mom things about genius perspective and my kids do it to me all the time. Run me that Corey gamble so I can live in a modern time. Coming up, Kristin Cavallari and Tyler, Cameron, turn things all the way up. Plus, our two bachelorettes better than one host Jesse pormer tells us how they're breaking all the rules this season. Is he like Peter? Are you ready for cheesy pickup lines and a battle for love? Ready or not, the bachelorette is almost here and it's already going off the rails. Hello ladies. Oh my God. Oh my God, that was a rat. How are you doing today? It's good to meet you before I hug you. I wanted to introduce you to a couple of my friends. When I heard there was going to be two bachelorettes, I figured I should practice hanging out with a couple of cute chicks all the time. I love it. Here they are. This is Mary Beth. Is it sweet? Yeah, she's great. Alejandro's had an attitude, but she's like doing great. My name is Logan. Logan. Sorry. I'll take that one. You know what? We're so happy to be here all three of us. And we'll see you inside. I would make him raise both those chickens the whole time in the mouth. I would keep them until the top three and then be like, you know what, your kids aren't acting right, you got to go. Well, at least he was trying to be creative. You know what a lady was trying. Don't bring yard animals to a date. That's just not. Like, don't show up with a goat. Well, that's what they do in Africa. They bring a gout. But then you actually take the person, that's it. But no, I just. Yeah, memorable though. Memorable. It's all about memorable. And it's awesome. That he needs a haircut. But look, this is what we're going to get when you have two women. You're going to have to try to do something different. And you know, I have to appreciate the fact that he tried to do something different. Well, you know what? Yeah, we're going to see a lot of that. There's a magician. There's another guy who showed up shirts moves. You know. Wait, did he make the chicks disappear? Huh? Did he make the chicks disappear? No, he did not. But let me let you know something. If a man shared up and made my credit cards

"This is gonna be fun. Oh yeah, I'm sure that oligarch will have all their money. Think about it. If you were married to someone and you guys made a promise to each other. And then you put a lot of blood sweat and money into it. And then they sell it off. And they're selling it because this person's going to have control of the winery. How would you feel about that? Lonnie when you and I were married. And then divorced. And then you made that promise where remember we had that canoe that we love so much. Talent Joel, talent. And you were like, I can borrow the canoe. As long as you never sell it. And then you sold it. You saw me with Rick Ross in the canoe. That's what happened. That Russian Roland gar Rick Ross.

They might stain. Jury, 'cause he wants people to listen to the evidence, so do you think this could be the next Johnny and Amber Heard trial? I would watch how much are you hoping it's not exactly correct. What do you do now without that court case? I love it. Boring now, isn't it? No. So they're giving us something.

I distinctly remember as you say you were taking just the Cabernet fields and I could keep the noir field. So we'll still have to talk about that. But I think people do it intentionally. To spike the other person a little bit. How long have they been divorced for? It feels like 30 years. It isn't completely final yet. It isn't. Yeah. It's been going on. I feel like the soup was canceled 7 years ago and it was happening. I know you got a new show on E, we still trying to fight divorce. You know what? Coming up next, the daily ten.

"Up, what Kylie Jenner basically did in her sleep that has everybody shook. I'm so mad even talking about it. We're gonna talk about a Jewish super joke. It's perfect. Kylie Jenner is officially the queen of Instagram yesterday she became the first woman to hit 300 million followers and today she's already up to 301. What is it about Kylie that makes people want to follow her? How old is her Instagram site? Is it something that happened fast? No, she's been having it for a while, but I think what it is is I always say less is more. You know, Kim will post every day. We'll give you a whole life. Yeah. And I think people are like, we love it. Yes, yes, yes. But with Kylie, it's like, everybody wants to see more because she barely gives you anything. We take that boyfriend, who doesn't give you no attention? You want him even more? Just in case. And then, you know, she's on the second baby. She might post something. And I think out of all the Kardashians, it's like she's that younger Jenner that everybody kind of relates to more. She has the boyfriend. She's like the new age. Yeah. Jenner Kardashian. That makes sense. But I'm a $1 billion. That can't be late. That's something. People inspired to be like her. So when you expire, then you tend to follow that. Justin goes right to jealousy.

"Hey guys, now today on daily pop, we're gonna talk about the Kylie Jenner secretly have her baby. We're gonna break down all of the clues we have been doing some major investigating. We're also gonna talk about Ellen Pompeo. She has a little bit of explaining to do and Brad Pitt is getting real about his love life. So Justin and Morgan are out. So I am back with super producer on the Scott young. Look at all beautiful and dating coach extraordinaire and author Monique Kelly. Ladies and ladies day on here, so good to see you guys again. Thank you for having me back. Look at good lady. How do you like this? You might be familiar. Collection. Lifesaver girl. I know, Mona just was coming out here from New York. She needed a little bit of help, but I needed help. And it's comfy and it's a girl before they get mad at me because I'm sorry. I'm plugging it in. You can talk about Kylie Jenner. Is she pulling a fast one on us because we know she is the queen of posting old pictures to throw people off, but you can't get anything past fans. People have been really deep diving about this on TikTok and people are very convinced that she secretly gave birth to baby number two. So we are going to break down the clues for everybody so you don't have to do the work. Okay. So people think Kylie knew she was pregnant way back in April when she seemed to pretend to take a tequila shot on the Kardashian reunion. So they were saying this was not her. She didn't take the shot. She was pretending to do it. And then that would make her due date if she could if she really took it because look, she faked it. That would make her due date now because she didn't really take it. Then there are these photos of her flying, which you're not supposed to do at the end of your pregnancy and her team made sure to really cover her up in a very unusual way. So people don't know. What's this really her? Plus, Travis Barker posted a photo over the holidays that showed a pink baby bottle. And it's the same kind that stormy used when she was a baby. She clearly wouldn't be using this anymore. So, I also saw someone tweet about it who was a very big Kardashian fan. And most of the stuff that he tweeted shout out to Anthony is correct a super fan who knows people super cool. He's also a journalist. So he also said that he believes that she had the baby. So we're our thoughts here. I mean, listen, these guys are the masters of strategizing and pre planning and everything. You know what I'm saying is a master manipulation. So I would say yes. I'm gonna say yes, she had the baby. Yes, it was all kind of mapped out in advance. I could absolutely believe that. Yeah. I think so too. And I agree with you. Here's a telltale sign when she was taking the shot. You saw how Chloe looked at her like you good. Yeah, fake it. I was like, oh yeah, she pregnant. Yeah, I definitely think that. And I think it's good that she's keeping it to herself and deciding to announce it. When she's ready, they're gonna dictate their own narrative. I agree. Like, I hate when people come in my comments for the most innocuous things telling me. You know what I mean? So I couldn't imagine like if this is my child. I'll talk about when I'm ready. People are going to speculate because she just has fans all over the place. I couldn't imagine how I would react to people pulling all these little clues from that. I mean, that was some deep investigation. People on TikTok, this is now like a TikTok thing where people are going through and posting all of these different clues. Did she have a lot of time? People are very invested. Listen, I think it's genius, right? The ability to kind of control the narrative of when you decide you're going to share this with the world. I think it's genius. And let's not forget, you know, we know Travis is going through a lot of legal woes. Yeah. So they definitely could be wanting this to be private so they can enjoy this privately because there's a lot of drama on the side. So I think we know about Kris Jenner. We're gonna announce it when it's gonna be an extravagant. They'll tell us who we're ready to find out. We won't find out a moment because we know her friends don't leave her information.

"You know, earlier today, I saw a picture of someone who isn't the person we knew back several years ago when the show mob wives was on TV. Have you seen the picture of Renee Graziano? Let's go with the trends. The trends of Renee Graziano, Jesus Christ and yeesh, when did she turn into a Kardashian? She looks more like Kim and Kylie and Khloe than Kris Jenner does for fuck's sake. But I saw this picture because brene Graziano, who says she's 52, my ass is now the newest inducted member of the big growing list of celebrities who get D, wi's. She had a parked car on the streets of Staten Island. This is fucking terrible. How long before she parties with Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian on Staten Island? Oh my God. When we were kids, we were told, stay off the roads. There's so many cops. You gotta be careful. Nowadays, it's all about stay off the roads. There's too many reality TV messes on the
Loudoun County Father Arrested at School Board Meeting After Daughter Allegedly Raped in School Bathroom
"For years, we have been warning about how the trans lobby is going to be endangering young women because they're going to allow young men that have mental problems who think they are women. Allowed into locker rooms. And we have been pushing back against this. Rather, I don't want to say unsuccessfully. There's been some wins and some losses, but the ACLU and all these major organizations, they are pathologically focused on trying to destroy regular gender norms and reinforce gender dysphoria. Now gender dysphoria used to be something that was talked about and was accepted as a real thing, and now we have decided to reorganize society completely and to play into a very serious mental condition that people should get treatment for. They should get counseling for. And so, in loudon county, you might remember this father that went to the school Scott Smith, who was arrested for disorderly conduct for trying to speak out at the school board meeting and then the national school board association calls him a domestic terrorist now why was he there? I want every father listening to this to know this story. Well, he was there because on May 28th, a boy who pretends to be a girl allegedly wearing a skirt, entered a girl's bathroom nearby stone bridge high school and sexually assaulted his 9 9th grade daughter. This is according to daily wire and Washington examiner. The family's attorney said, quote, a boy was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy. And one count and this is very graphic. So if you want to just talk about poppies and rainbows, go find another network. One count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio, related to an incident that day at the school. The sheriff's office confirmed, via a public records request that this was a real charge, mapping, matching the date and location of smith's rape. His 9th grade daughter gets raped in a bathroom by a man wearing a skirt, who thinks he's a woman. Spare me the we need more Caitlyn jenners in the Republican
Is Khloe Kardashian OJ's Daughter?
"Is Kris Jenner, Tim's mom was one of the Cole's closest friends. Oh, I know that. Oh, I know that because Kim, I mean, Chris and OJ is a famous story about them getting on in the hot tub. Chris denies it. I don't buy it. OJ talks about it. And I hate to say this as crazy as people think, OJ is? I don't think he's a liar. I really don't. I think OJ led a crazy charmed life for many, many years. And to a law degree, he still does. He's still treated like a rockstar sometimes around town. I know, 'cause he's OJ. He was a superstar. Fuck, he was one of my idols growing up as a running back. Kidding me? And I still think that Chloe is his daughter. I'll always hold on to that. She's never going to take the paternity test, and if she does, it'll be doctored. We'll never know the truth, but she's gone, she's gone so out of the way not to have that nose. Not to look somewhat like a mixed girl. Now, who the fuck is she? Who is Chloe? I think she's very pretty, but who is this face?

Who's running for new york governor and It just didn't go well but you know these people on tiktok. This is a lot of what they try to do that.

I mean you can kind of tell something's going on so then You know that that leads us into caitlyn jenner. Another one of my favorites caitlyn jenner. She was on the view and she had this to say she is still having trouble doing the calculation on the election and whether donald trump actually lost. No i agree. You've said you've settled that. Thank you for that. I wanna ask you something before we go because we're out of time something that's important for me to know you say that you're a republican and i'm just wondering because a lot of republicans in this country believe that donald trump won the election and not joe biden are you one of those people one of those republicans. I'm not gonna hit into that that election. I'm not gonna get into that. Why not color widow was it was an election. He lost the man lost. Donald trump loss newsflash news flash caitlyn and is over with i think donald trump did some good things and what i liked about. Donald trump is he. Did he work but he was. He was a disruptor when he was president. I wanna do the same thing. I want to go in and be thoughtful disruptor okay. That's the problem here. Folks is that you know they. They think now that what donald trump did as she's calling it a disruptor love the lips to by the way caitlyn. That's the new. That's the new way to do it. You've got to be a disruptor you've got to act like donald trump. it's sad but that's that's the in your face politics that got going on right now. It's not a respectful form of politics. It's not a respectful for him. ab- dialogue. It's not a way to debate dialogue. No matter what you call it but folks that's not the only thing. Remember a man named milo yiannopoulos member him the conservative. From way back. He's not that old but he's claiming that Dogs don't bark at him anymore. Since he declared this past march that he has now ex gay he is x. Gate as if there is such a thing mile. Can't pray the gay away. come on. this is ridiculous. I mean this is the same person folks who said that sexual relations between thirteen year olds and adult men and women can be perfectly consensual. There's something wrong with this man and as proof. Here's his piece where he says now that he's ex gay dogs don't bark at him. When i made my announcement. The first thing that happened which will make you laugh for. This dog stopped barking at me. I am one of those people you know. Everyone's got friend. That dokes always have surround. You go pets your chest but there's always somebody that small dog doesn't bark at you who cares dog'll you but that's okay He likes hey. Okay this is. This is the third rate Christian news that. You're getting here folks. I mean this is just. They've got nothing better to talk about than the fact that when he went ex gay. Supposedly the dogs stopped parking. God bars you must have some work to do that is true. I was one of those diets that god reveals himself to us. Right must've is somebody who in variably without exception always used to make talks. Go crazy so we have a friend. Who's a politic around down. Here right in. Her campaign manager has two little jokes okay. Well what is it the way he talks. You know i. I do this so i can look at the camera you know so i i look over my glasses. But he's like this he's sort of I just can't look up at you this. There's not something not quite right about my low. And i just can't put my finger on it and they would not stop. I couldn't be in her household and twenty minutes. Drive everybody crazy right Even growing up we had alsatians. We have black labrador and they just didn't like me. I wonder why. I wonder why but dokes at boca many more and it happened almost overnight now. They seem to quite likely and it sounds as the stupidest thing and it is allow folks. It just doesn't end. You know this the stuff out there. We've just got to keep kicking back we've got you know we're we're in the firmament the bedrock of common sense here at least that's where i like to be in it. Of course. yes it's from my viewpoint. It's i'm i'm liberal. No doubt about it. But i believe in fairness and i believe in common sense and folks. I'm gonna keep calling it out. Every time i i see him not following the the path of common sense so folks. Thanks for tuning in until next time..

"Sara yes caitlyn. You also have gotten some pushback from within the trans community for seemingly coming out in support of the trans athlete bands that have been proposed and dozens of states now as an olympian and one of the most famous athletes in the world. Your thoughts do carry some weight here. And you've called it. Fundament fundamentally a question of fairness opponents. Say it's pure discrimination. How significant do you think this issue is to be honest with you. It's a very small issue in the state of california I have been very outspoken. On this You can go to my website. Caitlyn jenner dot com. I explain everything and but we have so much so many bigger issues in this state like immigration Right now we have huge immigration issue in the state as governor. I would. I closes southern border. I would on all state lands. Finish the border. The border wall. Do what i would call the best job we can do and protecting our eastern front and illegal immigration into this state has been such a burden on the taxpayers on homes on businesses. In fact just last week. The supreme court made a ruling nine zero. One was the last time you saw. The supreme court agreed unanimously on a decision that people in the country on the tps program. The temporary protected status that they will not be eligible for citizenship. And honestly i agree with that. And if you're in this state illegally and you get arrested you are deported. I would be tough on. Immigrants kick bought also. We have so many immigrants. We don't have much time so let me just let me just ask this. I mean you seem to be up to date on a lot of political issues. You've obviously been briefed but you you have no political experience and my my question to you is. Why should california voters vote for you. When my understanding is in the last twenty years you did not vote in two thirds of elections. And although you told. Cnn's dana bash. That you voted in the twenty twenty election. You actually did vote in the two thousand twenty election. You cast a mail in ballot so you haven't really been engaged in the civic process. Why should why should california voters believe in you. Because i'm the best person for the job. i Am a common sense person. I also attract a lot of good people. And i would do everything for the people of this state. Gavin newsom has nothing but do things for special interests and it's wrong and the people have heard and that's why he's in a recall right now he's done touch a terrible job. I can come in as a fresh face. Kaitlyn you've said you've settled that. Thank you for that. I wanna ask you something before we go because we're out of time something that's important for me to know you say that you're a republican and i'm just wondering because a lot of republicans in this country believe that donald trump won the election and not joe biden are you one of those people one of those republicans. I'm not going to get into that. That election is over with. I think donald trump did see some good things. And what i liked about. Donald trump is up dirt win but he was. He was a disruptor when he was president. I want to do the same thing. I want to go in and be a thoughtful disruptor and sacramento. We need to change the system. And i want to change that system gender. I have to cut you off. I have to cut your because we're getting ready to go. Thanks to kaitlin want to come back and spend more time with you.

I'm done. I've given you my answer. I'm not gonna have an argument about it. This is what I think I am a trans woman, and I don't can you imagine like if it were her? You know, like, say back in her decathlon days as Bruce Jenner imagine if she decided back then that she wanted to compete in girls sports. She knows it's not fair because she used to be a guy and how are they going to attack her on this issue? Right. Well, they're figuring out all the ways you're biased. You're a bigot. You e just ridiculous. Listen, she's had the surgeries. She has had the hormones. She is wearing the heels. She knows that all of those things do not take away. The advantage is that she would have if right now, as however old. She is seventies. Right now, in her seventies, she could probably still beat. Ah, Whole bunch of girls, okay? Are the Republicans because the Republicans are going to coalesce around someone they have to. From a math standpoint, they can't have three Republicans splitting the vote. That's what they do. Is Schwarzenegger in 2003? Are the Republicans going to go all in on Caitlyn Jenner. I mean, it depends on who else There is right? Because, do we? No, We don't know that there are we? I still haven't heard definitively of Ric Grenell is going to run or not. I just I just I did that is going to be fascinating to me to see if the Republican Party in California is willing to throw all their eggs into the Caitlyn Jenner basket. Because there's no track record of her like there's no this. These are my long held political beliefs. I know that she was a trump supporter, but doesn't mean she views the government the way Trump does. That is gonna be the most interesting thing to me, especially if One of these whether it's a congressman, because that was the big thing in 2003. Darryl Aisa was big and like, bankrolling the recall petition because he thought, Oh, yeah, I'm gonna be governor of California. And then Schwarzenegger was like that's nice. Thank you for your money. And your time. Obviously, you know he was a congressman. But if these establishment connected Republican congressman I want to try to get into this. Where is the Republican Party going to fall? Because, at least with Schwarzenegger there was a track record. He'd been a part of the bush, you know, not Cabinet. But you know, he spoke at the Republican Conventions he had he had, you know, been a part of the physical fitness, you know Initiatives, etcetera. So you knew where he stood. And he was reliable is not the right word. But you know what I'm saying? I mean, this is gonna be interesting to see if they're willing to put faith and Caitlyn Jenner. Well, I will be interested. I should remind you because you've clearly for gotten that she was His glamour's woman of the year, So there's your criteria. There's your qualifications right there. Caitlyn Jenner is the governor of California deserves, you know, it's funny is how amazing the transformations among leftists are. When it comes to Caitlyn Jenner. I just saw Ah Group of tweets from George Takai. Am I saying that right? Is it to be quite close enough? Okay, So when this was did he tweeted? This was data. June's are February Star Trek Guy. Yeah, the Star Trek. By February six of 2015 unless it's June 2nd of 2015, because I'm not sure if George uses like British dates or you know what I mean. So anyway, when, when Caitlyn Jenner first did the Vogue cover, and she's in the course it and like people like Holy Crap, She looks really good In that picture. He hears what George Takei said. He said Welcome to the party. Caitlyn Jenner. You're stunning inside and out fast forward to when she got glamour's whatever That was Ah, later later that same year, he said. The soldier said it all here. Caitlin is amazing. And he linked to some story about how some soldier thought Caitlin was amazing. Fast forward to now. Kallen Jenner is no friend of the LGBTQ community. Don't call her an activist. She's a menace. She literally is one. What do you mean? She's no friend. Isn't it fascinating that We society wants to celebrate people based on their sexuality. You gotta I don't care. I know, like I would never hold it against you. But I'm not throwing you a parade because of it. You're not. But it's a better than me because you were a man who became a woman or vice versa. Stay where you're not better than people because you're a man and want to be a man. Nothing. Just mind your own damn business. Why are we throwing parades for anyone? I don't know. I've never understood that either, And it's not. It's not something to be proud about. Like I am a straight person. But it's not a source of pride. You know what I mean? Like, I don't understand why who you choose to sleep with would be a source of pride. I've always thought that the long years ago, even within the Republican Party was still conservative on the on the far right on gay marriage. Always thought if People want to be married to be miserable, like everyone else. Let them why. Why are we intruding on this? But at the same time you get no extra credit for me for being whatever your sexual preferences. Just treat everyone equal and leave everyone alone..

"Let me talk real quick about Kylie Jenner. Did you hear about this idiot? The woman who some people think is worth, let's just say conservatively $700 million. We heard it was a billion. Let's cut it down to 700 mil. Okay, just wild thing. Her makeup artist, Samuel rauta, who I don't want to say the wrong thing here, but if he's not already transgender, he's about to be transgender. He's in that in that crosshair. You'll see if you look at a picture. What that means, I don't know, I'm just saying, he's one of those people that's, I can tell, is going to transition. He's very confused. Either way, bad car accident. The family sets up a GoFundMe to help pay his medical bills. And you would think Kylie Jenner would just, look, just fucking pay it all. Since Samuel is her friend and reliably glams her up. How do you not help him out? He's made you look a certain way. That has brought you and your makeup line hundreds of millions of dollars. But no, she didn't do that. If she paid the medical expenses of every friend in need, she wouldn't have enough money to buy multi-million dollar sports cars, but that's not what she's supposed to do. So I'll give her credit for something she's done in life. And there are a lot of good things in short she's done that we don't know about. But I find it crazy. This guy has internal bleeding, 8 brain injuries because he was thrown from his car, hit his head on the pavement, underwent surgeries, march 14th, the GoFundMe that was set up to help him had a goal of a $120,000. It raised just over 97,000. As of a few days ago, so Kylie promoted Sam's family's GoFundMe on her Instagram page. And she got slammed for asking fans to donate to makeup artists who make her to a bank of us who makes her look beautiful in her makeup. I find it pretty sick too. May God watch over you and protect you, make a makeup by Samuel. Everyone take a moment to say a prayer for Sam, who got into an action this past weekend and swipe up to visit his family's GoFundMe. But she spelled families around how bad she felt the. Who cares she's worth $700 million of care about spelling and apostrophes. So Kylie decides to give $5000. Like, the first offer in an auction. That's kind of rubbed me the wrong way.

"Drive us to the finale of keeping up with the Kardashians and the same, frankly goes for this relationship between Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. Well, yeah, I mean again. It's they're trying to control the narrative, right? And they don't want anybody else. I mean, pick any story. They don't want anybody else driving the stories about them because they Make money off the stories that they Control. And so you know whether it's getting people to look in the opposite direction of this particular legal case, which it doesn't even matter if this legal case is true, like I don't know if this guy's telling the truth, and even if he is, I don't know whether he has a case And even if he does, I don't know what the results will be in terms of consequences for Kris Jenner. It kind of doesn't matter. The point is Kris Jenner doesn't want people talking about this story. Kris Jenner wants people thinking about you know the Kardashians and what's next for them? And we talked about this and have for you know, months, years days, whatever. But specifically yesterday when we're talking to Elizabeth during the dirt alert. People are gonna wanna watch this season right? Because they're now all these rumors that she and Kanye are getting divorced and the average Person isn't reading. Too deeply know, And if they are, they're banking that they're, like all in it to win it and will just non critically, you know, seek out anything that Again. You hear stories about Kim and Kanye Divorcing. So you think, Okay, I'm gonna turn up for the last season of keeping up with the Kardashians. That's a TV show, right? It's not real right so like and they have said as much. I mean, they have well, they haven't said that part, but they have said they will be talking about The relationship struggles. Between Kim and Kanye on the finale, which tells you everything you need to know this is all being timed out perfectly so that the bomb drops as the show ends well, because there's always drama between Kim and Kanye. There has been from the very beginning. There were rumors that these two were going to get divorced. They have a bunch of kids together. They have a bunch of wealth. In power and privilege like they don't need to divorce. I mean to not be around each other. If if this whole idea of like, Oh, he's because the whole thing is like he is mentally unstable. He's egomaniacal, and she's just trying to, you know, like, Keep the peace and have a calm family life. Excuse me one right. You are the like You are the Excuse me, You fool me once. No, like you Wherever you go right, the drama goes. So it's not Kanye. I mean, yeah, Kanye is certain zone banker drama is only his own bag of drama but typically speaking in the world Wherever Kim Kardashian goes, there is drama. So this notion that like she's just Ready and poised to eliminate this chaos from her life when she decides it's the time is good. Well, did we mention the fact that the emotional new teaser trailer for the upcoming 20th season of keeping up with the Kardashians dropped, But moments ago? Can we listen to but moments?

That's what that's what that's what's happening there. Uh, according to the World Economic Forum, corporate coalition for Work, Pay place Racial justice. I don't know about you, but I want Coca Cola. Serving me racial justice, you know? Hi, Leon e. I mean they first they taught the world to sing. You know, when you tell me to sing Well, you know, one of the things if we remember it was, I believe Pepsi who were able to get Kendall Jenner to bridge the gap between police officers. Oh, I remember that moment that was special tents. Sure, sure, Everyone's like, Wait a minute. The cops are going to kill all the innocent black people again. And then Kendall Jenner came in and said, Hey, drink this beverage. And then all the racial strife went away for a time. Just we didn't drink it up Pepsi. Well, let me just say the the great reset. Yesterday on day one of the Economic Forum. World Economic Forums. Corporate Coalition for Workplace Racial justice. Great reset lecture. 48 multinational corporations have signed onto the initiative, including Coca Cola, General Motors and MasterCard. So and this is really good, because what I really like about that. I mean, I think the guy uh, you know from Coca Cola said it best when he's talking about the new social contract contract. Business leaders need to shape an economy that works equally for everybody. That means fostering greater wreck racial equity and justice, including representation among executives. The US especially has got a long way to go on that score. Amen. Coca Cola. I'm glad Coco's reminding us of that. Yeah, on, he said. The Coca Cola company, um, can influence the entire ecosystem around them. Because you don't have to do business with every company that comes along. So maybe your company is getting coke. But, you know, maybe maybe you shouldn't be getting go because you're not really into the equity of the new system. And it's great to have that kind of thinking sitting right next to MasterCard and Kearns, vice chairman of MasterCard said. We have to require responsible stewardship of our shared resource is And the climate agenda should be part of all corporate governance. So why go through the government? When the government can partner with these private companies, and they're not held any standard? They could just do it, You know, you know Mm hmm. Yeah, I love this. This is a good way to go. Well, they They were listening to president eyes easing Ping Oh, yesterday. Good good. You know from China has any criticism of China, You know, usually when Chinese get criticized ago, we wind up the entire media unites to defend China. It's odd, he says. We need a great reset of relations between all the global powers. Great. What Great reset. Yeah, Before they say anything about building back in a different way or will build back better is what he was saying. Yeah, they're improving the way that they're building back, which is the way people talk people. I can't tell you how many times before.
