Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.
Fresh "Jill" from WTOP 24 Hour News
"Amazing that they got it all back together. Hardly any lights broke and they got it going. Beautiful start to the holiday season in that lovely tradition.

Earlier this week Jill and announced I the theme, Jill announced the theme of this year's holiday at the White House. Magic, wonder and joy. Three words that capture the essence of Christmas and holidays. the To rediscover for ourselves the simple joys of the season from familiar songs to favorite recipes. To open the hearts with simple acts of kindness, especially to those going through hard times and to strengthen the bonds with family and friends as well as with our faith and our community.

Alright, that's the President and the First Lady as they're kicking things off at the lighting of the Christmas National Tree. Let's get your traffic and weather together and it's a tough traffic night On a day like this, let's Dave Dildine in the traffic center. Yeah, DC is a lot brighter not just because of the Christmas lights but of course the brake lights as well. That's a tradition. The level of congestion though downtown, it's intense but it's not at the level of that notorious gridlock of the last decade. There's a lot more telework so yes, it's going to be very time consuming around the perimeter of the closures. 15th, 17th and Constitution all off limits near the Ellipse. Independence Avenue open. K Very, Street very crowded. 395 packed both on the Southeast -Southwest freeway and through the 3rd Street Tunnel. There are obstacles elsewhere. Northbound 3rd Street Tunnel near Massachusetts Avenue there's a crash. Outbound New York Avenue Northeast after Bladensburg Road near the Arboretum. MPD with a crash in the left lane. And from Dupont Circle to Calorama, Connecticut Avenue is still closed. Northbound at Florida Avenue where you have to turn past the ongoing utility project. It is a very slow rush hour around the suburbs, around the Beltway in Maryland and Virginia. Volume glaze are persistent near the Woodrow Wilson and American Legion Bridges. But no bridge is worse than the Bay Bridge right now. There was a multi -car crash on the westbound span. Traffic westbound on 50 is absolutely jammed across Kent Island but still you're getting by single file to the right and they're hauling damaged cars off that span right now. And they might be preparing to open up two lanes. No two -way traffic. Eastbound delays begin back near St. Margaret's Road. Go the electric Fits way. Looking for an electric car? Try the new Subaru Solterra, Hyundai Ioniq or Toyota VZ4X. State and federal incentives available. Go electric at fitsmall .com. I'm Dave Doldine, WTLP traffic. Let's get our forecast now from 7news first alert meteorologist Steve Rudin. As we move through the remainder of the evening and into the overnight scattered clouds will slowly increase
A highlight from How To Turn Your STRESS Into SUCCESS! (Part 2)
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Welcome back. This is day two. We're talking about how to turn your stress into success. And as you've learned, hopefully from yesterday, a lot of this has to do with your making the decision to actually get in control of all the head junk that's floating around in your head. If you didn't listen to yesterday's podcast, please do go back and listen to the podcast again, especially with regards to the brain dump. Indeed. That's such a great technique. You guys should all do it virtually every day. You're going to feel a lot better. So we're going to start with point number five because we did one through four yesterday. What to keep and what to let go of when you're getting back into control, how to turn your stress into success. Let me relabel this one and then we can read specifics. So one of the things again that we've been advocates of for decades are, it's called basically having media free life. And you can start out by having a media free morning, but really at the end of the day, you should do everything in your power to purge from your mind anything that's going to have an adversarial influence on your mindset. And a lot of that's going to come from the things that you choose to passively allow into your head. Now, it's interesting. When Julie and I originally started talking about having a media free life, let alone media free morning, people would take offense to it because they thought it was almost like their, I don't even know what their obligation to watch the news kind of like they had to watch it every day. It was almost like brushing their teeth. And people really would struggle with the idea of not ever consuming any media. But now I don't think people feel like that because I think what's happened over the last really maybe 36 to 48 months is people have realized almost all of the media is designed to essentially cause a reaction within your lizard brain that is going to not necessarily be putting you in a mental emotional state that you want to be in. And really it's I think at this point proven that a lot of them, especially mainstream media, it doesn't matter if you're blue or if you're red, it does not matter. A lot of it really is just propagandized garbage. So talking people into being media free now is a lot easier than it used to be. Now what's replaced it though is a lot of you guys are spending way too much time on social. So being media free, if you're just taking what you're picking up from cable news before and now you're filling your mind with all these really off the hinge websites and things like that, you've actually put yourself in a worse position. So one of the, again, things that you all should be considering doing is having completely media free lives. Literally purge all forms of media except for this podcast from your life. Well podcasts actually are I think very good because you can prune the content and of course obviously you can slide off one side or the other and you know, but you can curate what you're putting into your brain far easier than just turning the TV on and just, you know, being passive and you know, zoning out for whatever it's going to feed to you. And I think that it's, you know, I am with you on the media free a hundred percent, but knowing that they're going to naturally be on it now and then, you know, that brings us to this point of what should you, you know, to, to a large extent, take a break, go media free. You're going to feel a lot more peaceful because it has gotten to be very aggressive and contentious. Well, what a lot of people will realize is when you do go media free and you should just test this just for the sake of your own, I think, you know, intellect, go media free just in the morning or just in the afternoon, like afternoon today. Don't listen to any, you know, don't input anything that's going to cause you to feel a certain way that you're not in control of. And by the way, that is a really good, I think, introspective technique you can all use as whether or not something's good for you or bad for you, frankly, after you've listened to something or you've read something or just even talked to somebody, monitor how you feel. How do you feel inside? Do you feel happy, jubilant? Do you feel optimistic, excited? Do you feel, you know, love? Do you feel friendship or do you feel fear? Do you feel loathing? Do you feel defeat? Do you feel like monitor how you're feeling? What is the dominant emotions that you have after listening to today's podcast? What are the dominant emotions you have after listening to CNN or Fox News or whatever it is, right? And notice that what, for the most part, you feel when you're consuming media, especially if stuff's not good for you, you feel like the world is against you. You feel like there's a, you know, there's us and then there's them. You feel tribal. You feel maybe even superior, oh, you know, I listen to CNN so we think this way versus all those other people think that way and of course it's true on the other side as well. So just monitor how those things have psychologically evolved to manipulate you and the result of the manipulation is you frankly lose control of your mindset but your world gets smaller and smaller and smaller because eventually what's going to happen is you're only going to feel comfortable around other people that think and feel exactly like you do and at that point you're just living under a bridge. Well, you've got to make room in your brain for the good stuff, right? And so when you go, you know, you've listened to, you've watched whatever, something and it does make you feel yucky, guess what? You have control. Delete that app. Don't go back to it. If you, if you're watching like your news apps or whatever and you feel really horrible after reading something, sometimes it's not even that it was bad, it was just wasting your time. It was about nothing. I know. Right. So, so that's ultimately just monitor how you feel and then notice that when you go media free in the morning, for example, you know, I would like you guys to completely jump off the deep end and go media free period, but you will notice that you will go through forms withdrawal. of And I mean that in the literal sense. Now fortunately it's easy to get easier to get off media than it is, you know, getting off caffeine or something, you know, especially for somebody like me, not that we'd know because we're never going to try. I mean, why would someone get off caffeine? That makes no sense. That's like getting off oxygen. I know. Anyway, so wrong. Yeah. So anyway, when you go media free, what you're going to feel is you'll actually feel honest to God feelings of withdrawal and it manifests as a sense of lack of control. Oh my gosh, what is something going to happen? I'm going to miss out on the news. I'm not going to know what's going on. You actually start to feel this sort of literal feelings of withdrawal that comes from you're not getting that constant dopamine hit from really knowing the latest, greatest of everything is going on. All the news crawls and all the, you know, breaking news and all that stuff, it's all designed to trigger a little emotional response in your head. Somewhat like frankly, a lot of other things that people consume online, porn has that same effect. It releases a tiny little hit of dopamine and it causes you to feel a certain way for it. You get a little bit of a high from it. That's all that crap is. It's all designed to essentially start. Now you get, Oh, I want more of that feeling. So now I'm going to go and watch Fox news. I'm going to go to this website that's going to tell me that, you know, the human eating aliens are about to land, whatever it is, doom scrolling, doom scrolling, right? That is what people do. And you got to break free of that because you can't break free of that, or you can't be free of that until you break free of that. And when you do nature, it hoards a vacuum. In other words, once you are purging that stuff from your life, you will all of a sudden after you go through the withdrawal, it is real. I promise you after you go through the withdrawal, then all of a sudden you're going to start to feel lighthearted. You're going to, you're going to stop feeling divisive towards other people. You're not going to start seeing us in them. You're not going to, you're going to start feeling completely different. You're going to go back to your baseline, which for most of you are really good, nice, honest, loving, you know, people, not what the media wants us to all feel like. And look, look at the constant battle that seems to be happening socially right now in the United States and other places in the world as well. Don't you think the media, I don't think they created it. I don't. I think what they're doing is just parroting back to people what they're clicking on. Oh, they clicked on the fact that there's this, you know, horrible locust invasion that's happening in the Midwest or whatever. Well, people must want to read about horrible locusts with their big, you know, beady red eyes. Boom. You're seeing nothing. Let's give them more of that. Exactly. So the media is not, you know, creating the horrible red locusts. The locusts are there, but they're seeing that people want to read or see more information on that. Thus, that's what they're feeding you more of. People don't click on or read positive news. That's the reason. You try to find, try to find a story today anywhere that's going to be positive. And the reason that the media doesn't produce, and even, you know, amateur media people, they don't do positive because people don't click on it, because people don't view it, because people don't consume it. Why? Because you don't get that little dopamine hit. You only get it when you get the fear -based thing gets triggered in your head that comes from the bad news. So don't be surprised when you choose to go media -free, that you go through withdrawal. Don't be surprised after you've gone through that, maybe a week, maybe two weeks, that you're feeling this incredible feeling of relief, because that is how you'll feel if you give yourself the opportunity to get there. And then, what do you fill that? You fill that with the proactive lead generation and the other things that you should be doing to make yourself better, to improve the lives of your family and your loved ones, and obviously, to make a contribution to the people who choose to use you as a real estate professional. So that brings us to point number six, lead with proactive lead generation. You might be wondering, now that you've broken up with the media, what are you going to do with all of your time, right? So lead with proactive lead generation every day. You are either self -employed or self -unemployed based on the actions that you take. The things that agents avoid the most are the same things that are the most efficient and the most profitable. Proactive lead generation is your number one job, because without it, nothing else happens. You'll have leads to follow up on, no presentations, no deals to negotiate, and no closings. So remember that the answer to all stress in real estate is, take a new listing. Do it immediately. Your financial, emotional, and spiritual well -being all depend on this when you are earning your living in this business. All good things come from listings. And I can tell you, coaching call after coaching call, where today's call, the agent was kind of in this zone, stressed and maybe a little disorganized, feeling out of control. And guess what happens? In the next couple of days, they take a new listing. Next coaching call, it's like you're talking to a different human. Well, people need three things, right? People need someone to love, something to look forward to, and something to do that gives your life a sense of purpose. Those are the three fundamental things that it takes to have a happy, balanced life. I'll be even using the word balanced with air quotes. Someone to love, ideally they love you as well, right? Something to do that gives your life a sense of purpose, and something to look forward to. If you have those three things going on, and you can manifest all those things, it's not difficult. Discovering a sense of purpose, your sense of purpose is obviously your family and learning to be an amazing real estate practitioner. Something to look forward to, something to look forward to as a result of you helping other people through your real estate services and the money that you have as a result. And obviously your family is going to benefit from that as well, or maybe it's your dog that's someone you love. Dogs are great too. You guys get it? Stop making it so complicated. Go back to the essentially core principles of really what real estate is all about. It's not complicated to be very successful in real estate. Doesn't require all these multi -level, billions -level step systems and all the rest of it. It just comes down to five core activities. Proactive lead generation, pre -qualifying, presenting, negotiating, and then obviously closing, and then lead follow -up, right? That's six, but you do those things at a high level, you will have unlimited, unending levels of success, not just in your business, but in your personal life. If you believe that becoming more successful in your business won't make other aspects of your life more successful as well, I need you to shed those thoughts, because here's an interesting little challenge that some of you might have. If you have got caught into the, and again, this is going back to the point number six with regards to the media, but if you've got caught into this sort of never -ending loop of negativity, and you have actually convinced yourself that tomorrow is not going to be better than today, you're actually going to lock in and ensure that tomorrow is not going to be better than today, because you're not going to do the things today that would actually make tomorrow better. What do I mean? Julie's last point. Proactive lead generation. Julie, why would I go and proactively lead generate? Why would I go and do this? Why would I go and do that if tomorrow is going to be the alien invasion? I'm trying to make you guys laugh, but I want you to realize the fragility of all of our mindsets, especially if we're allowing ourselves to be overwhelmed with negativity. When you purge the negativity, and all of a sudden you start replacing that time, energy, and sort of the mindset that's been wasted on the negativity, and you start doing the things that are actually going to ensure or lock in that tomorrow is going to be better than today, there's a compounding effect to it that is, I think it's a law of nature, basically. Probably. But it is all within your control. I think that's what it gets down to. So we're talking about the next point. This is a big black hole right now. Stop pursuing less than motivated or nonresponsive, with air quotes, leads. Let them go. If you've been doing a good job with your lead follow -up before you lost control of your schedule, remember we're talking about turning your stress into success here, and those leads just aren't responding, chances are they are not real leads anyway. Now let's demonstrate that. Real buyers are responsive. They call you as soon as they see the right house, or when you sent them the right house. They update you about their financing. They send you listings they've seen. Well we have a list of things that you guys should be using before you actually consider working with a buyer. It's all part of the buyer prequalification script. It's all part of the process. A buyer isn't just somebody that says, I want to buy a house. They actually have, before you give any of your life energy, which you do not get back, your time, which you do not get back, you have to make sure that they are prequalified. Julie gave you an overview. All of the scripts are going to give you answers to all the questions, and once all the questions are answered, then you'll know whether you have a buyer. Because the real challenge with buyers, guys, is they never actually have to buy. And if you're spending all of your time, to Julie's point, working with buyers, even buyers that are really motivated, oftentimes what will happen is they'll demotivate themselves because guess what? They just read something on the news that scares the crap out of them, and now they're deciding to take some time off from buying a house. Are they just ghosts, Jill? Or are they something, something, something? So there's no such thing as a buyer that has to transact. So when Julie and I lean into hoping you guys are going to learn to be listing agents, it's because there are lots of examples of sellers that absolutely positively have to sell. Now that said, real sellers are also responsive. How do you know? They're following, they're answering your questions from your prequalification script. They're responsive. They're easy to schedule a listing appointment with. They're cleaning. They're packing. They're staging their home. They're doing the things that sellers do. If your leads are not acting like real sellers, they're probably not ready to transact. Just say next. But not until you've actually used the seller prequalification script. Now here's the thing. This is an especially hard lesson for new or newer agents who haven't had the experience to know the difference between real buyers, real sellers. Whether you're new, newer, or experienced, using the buyer and seller prequal scripts will cure that issue. Brian Tracy said, your greatest asset is your earning ability, and your greatest resource is your time. So in order to know who you should be spending your time with, you have to ask those questions and actually get the answers. If they're not answering you, they're not calling you back. They're not acting like real buyers and real sellers do. But sellers are very easy. Sellers are way easier to know. Right, because a buyer's motivation to buy, a buyer can always stay put. They can always stay renting. They can always extend their lease. They can always do a room addition, all those types of things. But when a seller, when you're using a prequalification script, you'll know their time frame, you'll know their motivation, and so sellers have to sell. They have to sell because they are closing on another house and they need the equity out of their current one. They are getting relocated to another part of the country and they need to sell their existing house. They bought the house as a VRBO and now it's not cash flowing, they need to get rid of it for whatever reason, right? All these types of things. So they maybe have to sell the house because it's a probate listing or maybe it's a financial reason. Much more specific. And there are examples. So when does this house have to be sold by? With sellers, there's going to be a date if they're a truly motivated seller. The ones that, well, if pigs fly, you know, when pigs fly, then if I can get my price, okay, Mr. Seller, so if the home doesn't sell for the price that you're thinking about, what is your plan B? Well, we'll just take it off the market and we'll try again next year. Not motivated seller. Now you can still dig down and ask more questions and find out, well, so just so that I'm clear when this home sells, Mr. Seller, where are you going next? Oh, well, we already closed on the house in Florida and we're planning on moving there in 60 days. Okay, hold on. So you just gave me a bunch of wishy -washy motivation and now you're telling me you actually have a house you want to move to? And I mean, that's why you have the script though, because most agents, if they ask the first question, that's the only thing they ask, then they declare that that person is not that motivated. They haven't drilled down to the point to find out what's really going on with them. Same thing with price. You know, a lot of times sellers will say, well, if I don't get my price, what if their price is realistic? What if that's completely fine? You drill down more. And yes, they do have actual motivation. And don't find out the seller's motivation over time. I'll find out what the real motivation, some questions after I waste months with them. No, find out on the first contact or maybe the second contact, ask the prequalification prequalifying questions, and then find out what the heck is going on in their lives. Because here, I'll tell you guys a little secret, which anyone who's listed real estate before knows this. When you know the seller's timeframe, when you know what their actual motivation is, at that point, you basically have the answers to all the questions, right? If you know that they have to sell within the next 90 days, that's the only thing that truly matters, because they have to sell the house. You guys get it? Which means you have to take the listing. Which you have to take the listing, which is what we teach you how to do. So keep these things in mind. It does come down to that. Isn't that funny? But here, I'm going to do a little mindset check. See, I'm tricking you guys back into thinking about that. How do you feel right now? You probably feel excited because you're realizing, Julie and I are not asking you to do things that are very complicated. You're realizing that, hey, I can read a script. I can ask questions. Yes, it would actually greatly benefit you to do so. Yes, and you're now feeling optimistic, and you're feeling excited, and you're thinking you're going to go do these things. Yes, you are. You see, the form of media, the things that you allow in your mind and your heart and your soul really, truly do matter. Next point, Julie. Okay, our last point for today, we're talking about how to turn stress into success. What should you keep? What should you dump? Well, guess what? Number eight, your fitness and nutrition routine cannot suffer when you're busy. Change it instead of skipping it. If you can't find time in your normal work to do your normal workout at the gym, replace it with a Saturday morning workout or a nighttime yoga class or something where you're not just deleting. Don't delete. Just modify. You need your energy, and it's a great place to find new leads. It's also a great way to work off that stress. So bonus point. What are you going to do about this? We've talked about scripts. We've talked about schedule. We've talked about being supported by people who believe in you. That would be our Harris certified coaches. So go ahead.

I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course, listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues, all of them at Q for hillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Morning, glory America. Bonjour, hi Canada. I'm Hugh Hewitt in Studio North. There's a lot to cover today, a lot to talk about. I'm going to begin, though, by telling you about my friend Terry Eastland, who died yesterday. And I want to read Roger Clegg's short obituary in the National Review, which posted yesterday at 1133. Roger writes, I met Terry Eastland after we had both joined the Justice Department during the Reagan administration in the early 1980s. So we were friends for approximately four decades. He and I were fellow Texans and appreciated not only Ronald Reagan, but Southern cuisine together. To be sure, Terry's expertise on barbecue in particular was deeper than mine, no doubt helped by the fact that his wife Jill was from North Carolina. Terry's Southern roots were manifest in other ways. He was devoted to the Atlanta Braves and sold encyclopedias and or Bibles door to door. I forget which and maybe it was both. He went to Vanderbilt and Oxford, studied the classics, eventually became a journalist. Readers of National Review knew Terry as a distinguished and stalwart conservative intellectual. He's the author of numerous books and innumerable articles and high on the masthead of the American Spectator and Weekly Standard, among other publications. He was not a lawyer, but wrote beautifully and wisely about a range of legal issues, including separation of powers, religious freedom and equal protection. We work together, writes Roger Clegg, most recently at the Center for Equal Opportunity, where Terry continued his lifelong fight for colorblind equal opportunity. Terry was one of the most pleasant and thoughtful people I ever met, a learned and genuine Christian in every sense of the word. No surprise then that he was devoted to his family, helping to care for his mother and mother -in -law and mentally challenged sister, as well as being a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Jill sent me a text this morning. Terry passed away gently this morning. He is with his savior. That's a beautiful and short farewell to Terry Eastland. Everyone who is in the conservative legal movement, I mean, really, everyone who's in the conservative legal movement, who's 40 and older, has worked with Terry. And I don't think anyone can say this, I don't think Terry had any enemies. I really don't. I met Terry at a Bethel Bible study in 1983 when I was clerking on the D .C. Circuit and the Fetching Mrs. Hewitt persuaded me to go over to a national Presbyterian church. You know, I'm a Catholic, but this is my first dipping the toe into the Presbyterian world. And there are about 14 people from Jack and Edna who were in their 70s, right down to young married couples like the Fetching Mrs. Hewitt and myself in the Eastlands and a number of other people led by Anne Dennison. And we met together once a week for two years to go through the Bible, especially useful to people like me who have no idea what's the organization thereof. But Terry was there and first time you go around the room, what are you doing? And I said, well, I'm clerking on the United States Court of Appeals for the District Columbia Circuit. Terry lit up and said, that's interesting that I'm over at the Department of Justice. We should have lunch. And we did. And Terry and I and Jill and the Fetching Mrs. Hewitt became fast, fast friends over two years in Bible study. And then Terry recruited me to DOJ off the court. He went in and said, do you want to work over here? Bill Smith, because I was going to Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher, a big law firm. I'd accepted their offer. I was doing a clerkship and was going to go to GDC downtown D .C. Said, you want to come on to work over here? You know, Bill Smith, he's a Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher partner. He'd probably like you. And so I took my resume into Tex Lazar, who was the new chief of staff after Judge Ken Starr had left. And I interviewed with Tex and I interviewed with General Smith and I went over to work there. And Terry and I worked together for the time I was at Justice. And after I went over to the White House, he stayed with Ed Meese when Ed Meese arrived and became the head of public affairs for Ed Meese. And the four horsemen would run in those years somewhat fast. That's Brad Reynolds, Chuck Cooper, Terry Eastland and Hugh Hewitt would run down the mall every day back in the 80s and back up solving the problems of the world. The conservative legal movement is broad and it's older than the Federalist Society actually begins in 1981 at the Reagan Department of Justice and with Ed Meese at the White House. And it flowered. And in the middle of it was a non -lawyer, Terry Eastland. I'm not saying he's central to everything, he just knew everyone. He wrote carefully, constructively, amusingly, and he was never angry. He was indeed the nicest man in Washington, D .C. And part of that is Texas and part of that is Christianity and part of it is his humility. And he really brought home this to me, the most important non -life lesson but intellectual lesson I learned from Terry. The Constitution was written to be understood by ordinary people. It was written by landed people for people who were not landed and not often literate so that they could adopt it in state conventions and that you ought to be able to read it and understand it and reason it. Terry wrote great books about the Supreme Court. He wrote great books about the law. He wrote great books about affirmative action, especially which offended him deeply because he came from very, very little. And he ended up going to Vanderbilt and Oxford and becoming an intellectual. He's a newspaper editor at the Virginia pilot, Norfolk pilot, I believe, and before that at the Observer. And he was recruited originally by Bill Smith, General Smith, to be a speechwriter and then he took over all of comms for General Meese.

"Christmas Day. Vicki Barker, CBS News, London. Inflation and higher prices are pushing up the cost of the 12 days of Christmas. On the first day of Christmas, my true love said to me, PNC's Christmas price index shows that Partridge in a Pear Tree will set you back more than $319 this season. That's a jump of almost 14%. The price of two turtle doves up 25 % to $750. The four calling birds, five gold rings, seven swans a swimming eight and maids a milking are all about the same as last year. Overall, your true love would have to spend .86 $36 ,729 to show you they care. That's an increase of 2 .7 % from 2023. Deborah Rodriguez, CBS News. It's and 11 thirty five. Here's your Jill on Money question of the day. Katie from Arizona asks, in terms of retirement milestones, I was wondering how pensions might fit into the calculation.

Fresh "Jill" from Bloomberg Daybreak Europe
"Would there be a better way at any one point? We didn't think so. I still don't think so, but I'm open to that argument. But what is meant by better? That approach pragmatic to the world as it is, rather than how policy makers might like it to be what informed Kissinger's view long after he left public office and sought to wield influence as a private citizen. At the age of 88, Kissinger wrote the book On China about the country he helped to bring back to the stage. world In a 2020 interview at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum, Kissinger warned of the risks of adaptation between the world's two biggest economies. Let's set it some basis of cooperative action. The world will slide into a catastrophe, comparable to World War I. Henry Kissinger worked to head off that catastrophe after he reached his 100th birthday. As President Biden sent cabinet secretaries to Beijing in 1993 to stabilize relations, the one US diplomat that Chinese President Xi Jinping would meet face face to was the man he called an old friend to China, former Secretary of State Henry I'm Nathan Hager, Bloomberg Radio. So looking back at the life of Henry Kissinger, perhaps one of the biggest figures in geopolitics of the 20th century wielding influence over many decades, even though he had left the sort of formal arena, still visiting China and giving interviews right up until his death for close to 100 years. And as Nathan was pointing out, controversial in some of his policy actions, of course, and the impacts of that still being felt for for for many in Cambodia. But when it comes to the question of China, this this revered place in terms of the linkages between the US and China and seen as a trusted vehicle in which to communicate concerns China's and equally for the US to communicate with China. And his book on China still is seen as essential reading for thinking about modern modern day modern day China and the politics of that country. Fascinating. All right, let's turn our attention then away from that and to the Federal Reserve. Yesterday, we had a couple of Fed speakers, the Cleveland Fed President, Loretta Mesta, also Atlanta Fed President, Raphael Bostic, making the case for continuing to hold interest rates steady. A third Richmond Fed chief Thomas Barkin said that he isn't yet convinced. All three are voting members on the FOMC next year and this of course is having big, big impacts in terms of bond markets this morning. Let's bring in Bloomberg's China government and economy editor, Jill Deeses. Good morning. Should we start on the US and we'll come on to the China data in a moment. The US inflation trajectory, change the and the tone of the Fed commentary ahead of course of the next Fed meeting in December. Jill, what do you make of it? Well, I think Caroline at this point it does seem like we're pretty set for a fold once we have that FOMC meeting in December. If you look at the latest data that we have out of the US, the Fed's Facebook survey was just released yesterday showing that sales of discretionary items, durable goods, you're looking at furniture appliances were declining indicating that the American consumer is pulling back on spending that's coupled with obviously recent data and in brief weeks showing a cooling of the labor market. Now, Caroline, this is obviously a really important gauge to look out for because as the Fed has made clear several times including of several the Fed speakers this week have said that they really want to be data dependent when it comes to making these Fed decisions in the coming weeks and months. This is probably some of the best sort current of data that we have. A lot of the gold standard benchmark official data that we get is often very backward looking. So at this point obviously showing that you're seeing that cooling off in terms of what people are spending money on, you're seeing. I think some additional data showing cooling in the labor market that does all sort of point to what these guys been have saying over the past several days, which is that we're headed for a pause and then we'll ultimately have to see where we start cutting next year. I think that's what the question is ultimately turning to. And meanwhile, Jill, the data out of China, manufacturing services, PMI data softening below expectations, and some now increasing clamor for policy support, but that's been a story we've heard before. Talk to us about the data mean when it could for the reaction function of the PBOC and the finance ministry. Yes, Tom, certainly. So what we got out of China today was this official manufacturing PMI data showing, yes, as you said, a deeper contraction than we were expecting. Now, this has been falling off despite the fact that seasonality suggests you should actually be getting a bit of a rise as you're heading into the holiday season for China. We're certainly seeing things and factory activity losing some steam here. Tom, what I was more concerned about was looking at some of these underlying services gauges. So if you look at the gauge of non -manufacturing activity that's measuring both construction and services activity that did still remain in expansion, but part the of pull down in that from the prior month did come from the services activity actually contracting in the month. uh, Now, Chinese officials are saying that's because comparing to October when people were traveling for golden week. And so it's a less favorable comparison when you get into November. But I do think that that indicates some ongoing issues with demand. Now you talk about policy support. I think at this point it seems pretty entrenched that China is shifting into this mode of thinking more about fiscal stimulus, fiscal funding, and how the back can contribute to economic activity more than policy at this point. But I think as we start to get into 2024, we are seeing some pressures ease a bit on the UN just as the dollar comes down a little bit. So maybe there is a little bit of room for another rate cut at the beginning of January and February. Okay Jill, thank you so much for joining us on the Economics in the UK and China, Bloomberg's China government and economy editor, Jill Deeses. Okay, it's 9 .23 here in the City of London, time to briefly check in on your markets. European stocks posting gains of two tenths of a percent so far this Thursday building on the yesterday.

This is Bloomberg Radio. First Lady Jill Biden has tested positive for COVID -19. Her office confirmed the news Monday, saying the 72 -year -old is experiencing mild symptoms. She's expected to remain at her home in Delaware. Meantime, the White House says President Biden tested negative for the virus Monday evening. He'll test at a regular cadence this week and monitor for symptoms. Police in Pennsylvania are still searching for an escaped inmate they call extremely dangerous.

Lieutenant Colonel George Bivins said they're working to find convicted murderer Danilo Cavalcante and want to make sure no one is hurt in the process. New York State Attorney General Letitia James is calling for coordination amid an influx of asylum seekers. Liz Warner reports. James is one of several New York officials marching in the West Indian Day parade and she commented on the recent letter exchange between Governor Hochul and Mayor Adams. The letters, the accusations, the recriminations don't serve anyone and what we really need is someone to coordinate. And so I would urge everyone to get together in a room or on a Zoom call.
A highlight from Coping With Cravings
"Can you relate to this? You've made a commitment to yourself and maybe even to your family that you aren't drinking anymore You are consistently reminding yourself You're gonna be more committed than ever you've started some morning rituals to keep you on track and you know in your head this time has to be different and So far you've done pretty well. Maybe you've made it a week or a month. Maybe even a few months Then one day you're cruising through your day minding your own business Out of nowhere you're hit with a craving for a drink and it's powerful You try to tell yourself to ignore it distract yourself You think it'll go away But it feels like it's getting stronger and the stronger it gets the more you start to panic All the thoughts flying through your head a thousand miles an hour. What am I gonna do? How am I gonna get through this is one drink gonna kill me? Should I just have one? Should I not have one? Should I call somebody? Cravings can be one of the most challenging pieces of living a sober lifestyle romanticizing the past romanticizing the drink the nostalgia of it and All the comfort it once gave you all of this together can create an emotional whirlwind Over the last 15 plus years I've helped literally thousands of people completely change their lives and get out of this unhealthy relationship with alcohol in dealing with cravings is a part of the process for all of us You're about to listen to something a little different on the show today It's not our typical guest interview format and don't worry.

A highlight from Freedom, Skepticism, and the Fight for Change
"But a lot of people don't have that, that ability. And that's what breaks my heart. These people continue to vote for the Joe Bidens of the world with the idea that yes, it will be better and I'll be able to work my way out of where I am. And it's actually going the other way. And welcome to another TFG podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with my partner, Mike Speraza. Mike, how are you doing today? I am good. No complaints here. I can't elbow you. You're not, you're not like sitting right next to me. I can pretend I am, but it's not really working for me. We can figure it out. I don't know if you can see my arms over here, but we'll figure it out. Yeah, I see them. I see them. Yeah. Hey, so it's back. Not actually COVID, Mike, but mask mandates. Major movie studio Lionsgate reinstating the mask mandate. Effective immediately, Mike. It's serious. It's dangerous. Get those masks on. They will be required on certain floors in the Santa Monica offices until further notice. And, um, this is the official, uh, note here from let's see Summer McElroy, uh, is response the manager for Lionsgate slash stars. And, uh, she says employees must wear a medical grade face covering surgical mask, K on 95 or N 95. Geez. I forgot how much I, I hated those terms, Mike, until just now when indoors, except when alone in an office with the door closed, actively eating, actively drinking at their desk or workstation, or if they are the only individual present in a large open workspace. So there are some exceptions, Mike, but can you even imagine that they're thinking COVID COVID is back when a couple people, a couple people have, have gotten COVID again and have tested for COVID -19 amazing. Well, yeah, I'll tell you what's not actually back. It's COVID. Uh, COVID is not actually back. I know they're saying there's a new variance, Mike, that's the new thing, right? Whatever GB four, five, two, one dash four, whatever they're calling this new one. LGB, Q plus AI, 14, 17, and that we know isn't coming back, obviously. Um, you know, it's, this is another fear tactic gets to get people all juiced up. It's working, by the way. Um, you know, and Mike, what's coming in 2024? Hmm. What is happening in 2020? Oh, another election cycle. So we need to scare people and we need to get people worried about not going to the voting booth again. So we can do what we did in 2024. If it's not what we did in 2020, now in 2024, what we know is Mike, there's going to be a crisis. We just don't know what it is. Is it, is it more COVID? Is it going to be a climate change issue where we're afraid you can't walk in public or you're going to die. So they can't go wait in election lines. We don't know what it is. They're going to try COVID again. I'm interested to see how it works though, because I really will tell you, I don't think it's going to work the way they think it is. You know, obviously people like us aren't going to follow it just the way we did last time, but will they get all the people they scared last time based on vaccinations, Mike and booster schedules? I don't think it's going to work, but we'll see. Well, Hey, why not try it though? That's what they say. That's what they say. That's right. Yeah. Keep going. Double down, triple down, quadruple down. So, so the, there were several employees, Mike, testing positive for COVID -19. This was from Dr. Nicole Sapphire. She said, the reason you have an uptick in cases right now is not because you did something wrong. It's because for the last several years, we've seen an uptick in cases in the winter. And we also see one in the end of summer. This is just a normal cycle of this respiratory virus. Now to your point, Mike, I think this is just the normal cycle, the normal routine for liberals and Democrats. The normal cycle is to fear monger, make people anxious again, make them feel like they, they might peril from, from the COVID virus. So you, you've got to stay in and then eventually they're going to start saying, um, but don't worry, you'll be able to vote, but you're going to be able to do it by mailing in your ballots. You're going to be doing early voting, right? So to your point, this is just part of their playbook. And I swear in somebody's crazy laboratory, political laboratory on a whiteboard, this is there, I'm sure for mid to late August scare up people in, on COVID again, scare them up. And then are we going to hear about more boosters, Mike, do you think? Well, it'll be interesting to see what they do. Here's my thing. And I believe this, I think this could be a good thing for Republicans to be honest with you, Mike, because if you do this again and you, you fight this fight, like the way they did the last time, you actually may move more voters to Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, whoever the candidate is, because people are just not going to do it. And I'm going to tell you right now, they think they're going to start to push this stuff in September, October, when kids are back to school and they're going to say the kids need to come back and mask. We need to put up the penalty boxes again. Um, it's going to cause mayhem. I thank God, Mike, I don't have a kid in school yet. Obviously both your girls are way out of school now, so you don't have to worry about that. But a lot of parents are going to have to worry about, I'll tell you if my kid was in school, I'd be ripping them out in homeschooling them so fast. I would make it work whatever my wife and I had to do. My child is not going to school and face diapers. My child is not getting boosted and vaccinated. It's not happening. Um, we'll see what happens though. I mean, again, do I think people are going to get scared and go boost up? I'm sure they will. The same way that all these people think that Donald Trump, you know, created an insurrection on January 6th, anything they hear from CNN or MSNBC, they'll run with and you know, some people, but I think a lot of the middle voters are going to say, wait a minute, I'm not dealing with this bullshit again. No way. So to use some of their terminology, do you think that literally the conservatives, the more moderate thinkers, the common sense thinkers, those that actually look at facts and evidence, do you think this is going to trigger, uh, their microaggressions, which I would say, if you tell them that they can't go out again, if you tell them that they need masks, that they must get vaccines, these are macroaggressions. These are aggressions far, far worse than not calling someone by the right pronoun. And, and do you, you think that this could really sway the more moderate thinker, maybe even the moderate Democrats and hopefully a whole bunch of independence? Yeah, I do. I think it's the same thing that we're seeing with the four indictments on Donald Trump. I think a lot of people in the middle that don't actually like Trump by the way are kind of like, wait a minute, this isn't adding up anymore. We're going after this guy on crimes that for the most part, Mike, they really have no evidence of, they just keep saying he does these things, but when called to bring evidence, they really haven't been able to. I mean, some of the crimes in New York with Alvin Bragg, you look at them and you're like, well, many people have made payments to people or, you know, many people have used different accounts and you know, you look at the one in Georgia, they're going after Mark Meadows for making a phone call to an attorney in Pennsylvania. What is the crime for that? Right. I think that's the same type of thing that we're seeing here with COVID where people are going to say, okay, enough is enough. I don't maybe love Trump as a man. I don't love Trump for who he is. However, I need to vote for someone that actually cares about me and that's not going to make my family and myself go through hell. And I do think there's fear out there too, Mike, with the indictment thing. I know I'm going back to that, but at some point, you know, it's kind of nerve wracking, isn't it? When are they coming after me? When are they coming after Mike Hayflick or Lomas or Wiggle or the financial guys as a whole? When you do these things that they've done, it begins to make you wonder again, not a conspiracy theory guy, but man, it's kind of scary what's going on right now. And if you don't see that, you're either blinded or you have a serious, serious form of Trump derangement syndrome, which I've said this on the record, Mike, and I'll let you get back in. Trump derangement syndrome has impacted and affected more infected, more people than COVID ever did. I can assure you that. Mm hmm. Yeah. You wonder, um, we'll, we'll talk a little bit more about Trump a bit later. Um, and then I want to talk to, uh, to you about our president, our president Biden, who, who, who visited Maui recently, just, just to wrap this though, many mainstream media outlets have actually been running a lot of, uh, of, of their programming on again, masking. So MSNBC, they ran a segment on kids masking to prevent the spread of the virus at the beginning of the new school year. Of course, PBS had one about wearing masks in crowded areas to prevent the spread. CBS mornings warned about the summer COVID spike that may happen due to people letting their guard down, Mike, they're letting their guard down. They're not, they're not behaving as they're supposed to. They're not, they're not, they're not programmed well enough yet, Mike, to know that they should have just been putting masks on Mike because the end of the summer was nearing. So, um, but we got to move on. It's making me, one thing I want to vomit. Let me say one more thing on that. This is, this is yet another thing that they're going to say as an Alex Jones conspiracy theory, because he was the one that came out and said, this is coming. Uh, it'll be another truth. Just like the Babylon B is now the, the full source of actual truth. Every time they joke about something, it happens. Um, Alex Jones has been called a conspiracy theorist for years now, some things he's been wrong and I will say that, but this is another one to say, Oh, they're not going to do that. Don't worry. They're not coming down with COVID mandates again. Oh, but they are. And there's evidence of it too. Target has gone to, you can pick stuff up now. They're creating pickup lines again. You have stuff talking about voting and elections again. I mean, it's, it's coming and I'm waiting for it, Mike. I'll tell you what's going to piss me off is when they do it with sports games again. Oh, you're not fully boosted yet. You don't have a mask on. Yes. Or you can't come into the bills or savers games. That will be the end of it for me. I think if they go to that, that, that extreme. I think you're right. I think when you start messing with people's sports and their inclination to want to go and get together and have some fun at a sports event, you really are. You really are needle in people at that point. Um, all right, let's talk about our president, Joe Biden. He finally makes it over to Maui to check out the conditions there. And, and this is what he does, Mike and his, I mean, literally moderate to maybe severe dementia state that he's in. he uses a minor fire at his house to claim he knows what it's like to lose a home while visiting Maui. So this is essentially what he said. I don't want to compare difficulties, but you know, he's going to as soon as he says that right, Mike. Um, but we have a little sense Jill and I have what it was like to lose a home years ago. Now, 15 years, I was in Washington doing meet the press, like to actually look this up by the way, and do some fact checking on this because you know, many of the things he said never, never proved to be true. He says, um, lightning struck at home on a little lake outside the home, not a lake, a big pond. It hit the wire and came up underneath our home into the air conditioning ducts. To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my Corvette 67 and my cat. So this isn't the first time he's recalled this Mike. He, uh, he, this happened in 2021. He said that his house burned down and, uh, you know, here, here he goes, you know, this is what I think people who are ill do. Um, this, this actually says it started a small fire that was contained to the kitchen. So this was not almost losing his wife and his Corvette and his cat, Mike, by the way. So a little bit of extra, what we call that hyperbole, exaggeration, um, just telling a damn right lie. So, so he is so out of touch. There's another, another thing I want to mention then about his visit there, but he is so out of touch that even in the worst of tragedies, literally standing on charred ground, looking at probably miles worth of, of nothing, it's got to look like a war zone in Maui. And he can only think of himself, Mike. Well, first thing is Joe was your house fire. Was that climate change too? Or was that just a faulty wire? That would be my first question. Number two, Mike. Yeah. I mean, look at, this is politics. One -on -one you try and reason with voters. You try and reason with people, you know, in ways that you can, just like he does with the, the Bo Biden stuff. But there's a point in time where it's not, it's just not comparable. Right. And you have to see that moment that have a brain in your head. And I don't think he has it personally. Um, this as, you know, as like you said, there's charred remains, thousands of people still missing, by the way, your, your pitch is, Hey, I almost lost my cat. I don't care about your kid that might be under the rub. In my Corvette. Your cat, your Corvette, the same Corvette that Hunter was putting the documents in and bringing hookers to same Corvette. I'm not sure. But the, the, the thing like, again, at the end of the day, these people don't know where their loved ones are and you're making comments about a small house fire that was probably from an oven that you left bread in. And you're talking to people like, Hey yo, your kid's underneath the rubble. Don't worry about it. I lost my cat in my Corvette. I mean, I know how it feels. No, you don't Joe. And that's not how you talk to people that are going through the single worst thing in their life, especially ones that lost loved ones. You know, the ones that lost their house, Mike, that obviously stinks. And you know, I deal with a home insurance that's terrible, but it's when you don't know where your loved ones are, or you don't know where your family is or your friends are because in children are right. That's, that's the stuff that to me that like, come on, Joe, man, don't, don't, don't patronize people like that and don't make people feel like crap. And then tell a story about you and your family. It's unbelievable. Yeah. It never ends. Here's a, another, another thought that he had as he, as he was walking around Maui, he basically says, you know, he he's walking amongst these people and he shaking hands with officials, of course, probably not even sure where he is at that point. Um, he stops in front of a search and rescue dog. And while petting the dog, he joked the boots, the canine was wearing. He says, you guys catch the boots here. He smiled and said, that's some hot ground, man. So here he goes with his man comments, again, just with no common sense, whatever, no compassion at all joking that the dog's got to wear boots because the ground is so hot. I mean, I just like, this just makes me wonder who still supports this man. This man is ill. This man should not be, he should not be leaving his home anymore. I don't think he could leave his home unattended and not get lost or maybe die in a tragedy himself. And who on earth is still support in this man? Well, he's, he's the guy that you're, you know, your parent, let's say that you're afraid to leave at home, or they're going to leave the stove on and burn the house down. And I'm not trying to make a, a fire comparison. That is not, that is not, I totally agree. I'm being serious, right? I mean, this is the type of guy we're talking about here. We've all had that in our family, grandparents, parents, you know, maybe even children that are, that are handicapped or something, right? I mean, we, we have these fears and they're legitimate, right? And for a guy that can barely talk in public, you do worry, is he forgetting things that, you know, whatever it may be. Um, I'll say this to him. I don't know if you saw the video. It's came out today and it's been circulating today of him at some kind of, uh, event in Maui and he's falling asleep. Did you see that? He's falling asleep. No, I thought you were going to, I thought you were going to say the one where he was doing the press conference and the guy offered him a glass of water and he kind of looked like he didn't even know what that meant and he wandered off to his left. But no, I didn't even hear about this next one. I don't think we can possibly keep up, Mike. We can't possibly keep up. And to our point, Mike, you know, we make jokes and we smirk sometimes we talk about this guy, but, but it's really not funny. And it really is a problem that we have that as our leader, again, dealing with, uh, president G in China, dealing with Putin in Russia, um, even dealing with Zelensky in Ukraine, like this is not the guy you want doing that. And again, what scares me is and not to make light of it, but you wouldn't trust this guy dog sitting for you, let alone running the country. Right. And again, to my point, how many like you you've had family, I've had family that you, you fear for their safety. If you're not around, right. That is this guy through and through. It's scary.
A highlight from Bidens Disastrous Visit To Hawaii & Are Covid Mandates Coming Back?
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. So, this is surrender week for Donald Trump, as well as the 18 others charged with racketeering in Georgia. These indictments actually are solidifying Trump's support. Pretty much everything that NBC News and the New York Times have told you about the war in Ukraine is a lie. Democrats only blame climate change for their own incompetence. Here's what really happened. Now, from the relieffactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Oh my gosh. I don't even know where to begin. I don't even know how to start this hour. I am reeling from everything that's coming at us. And if I feel this way, I can only imagine how you feel. The American people are dumbfounded at what we're witnessing north, south, east, west. Look around at the condition of this country. We got to get this country back. And I don't know how we do it. We got a commander in chief who yesterday mumbled through a disastrous speech in Lahaina where authorities fear a thousand people are still missing from these wildfires. In Hawaii, not Ukraine, Maui, United States of America. One of our states, the president shuffled over to meet with Maui wildfire victims. And you know what he said to them? I had a fire in my house once too. And of course, being a high profile guy, the fire is well documented. It was a small kitchen fire. And Joe Biden, I mean, first went on about the tragic passing of his first wife and daughter in a 1970s car accident. Now, I know about loss. I've lost people. I can't imagine me going to your loved one's funeral and saying, hey, you know what? My wife died too. I mean, this man is out of his mind. This guy, and I don't think we can give him a pass. I get, I'm really over saying, well, he's senile. Well, he's senile. No, maybe he's just an awful human being. Maybe he's a narcissistic bad guy. This guy's a narcissist. I saw this clip. Derek played this clip for me. And I said, Derek, stop it. Stop, stop faking me out with videos. He said, Mike, I'm telling you that he said it. I said, Derek, he did not say this. This is a comedian. This is an actor. This, you bear in mind when I play this clip that he had a small kitchen fire that was contained. And that small kitchen fire is what he wanted to tell the grieving people of Hawaii. They have almost a thousand people they can't account for. And this is what the commander in chief said when he was almost forced, I guess, to finally go visit Hawaii and show his support. I don't want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense, Jill and I, what it's like to lose a home. Years ago, now, 15 years ago, I was in Washington doing Meet the Press. It was a sunny Sunday and lightning struck at home on a little lake that's outside of our home and on a lake, a big pond and hit a wire and came up underneath our home into the heating ducts, the air conditioning duct. Make a long story short, almost lost my wife, my 67 Corvette and my cat. I give you my word that actually happened. That was actually a speech that came out of his mouth. If you're living in Hawaii right now, you've got to be going out of your minds. In fact, I saw the video of people lining the streets, giving in the middle of finger and saying blank you as his motorcade arrived. And what's the media going to do about this one? Hey, news media, you're going to you're going to crucify him the way you spent four years crucifying Donald Trump? Of course not. Of course not. And you know what? You want to know what really sickens me? For all of the bombast and the bluster and the braggadocious persona of Donald Trump, he would never, ever do something like that. He would never denigrate a grieving community like that. By bragging about his small kitchen fire 15 years ago, you've got to be kidding me. You think this guy's going to be on the ballot next year? No way, not a chance. There's a lot of things I'm not sure about, but I am I guarantee if he's in this, if he's willing to say things like that today. And again, don't just give him the pass. Don't just say he's senile. I'm sorry, this is rough and I'm going to have to apologize for what I'm about to say, but this man is rotten to the core. He is a rotten, awful, narcissistic human being. And I know that's harsh, but hey, who cares? That pales in comparison to what they said about the 45th president. And what they're going to say about him on that debate stage tomorrow night. And you know the worst part about the debate tomorrow night? There won't be anybody to refute the crap they're going to throw at Trump. Now, if they're smart, they'll barely mention Trump. I suspect they're not because they're not smart and they can't resist it. They can't resist bagging on the guy. So when they do and when they attack him, there won't be anybody to defend him. You think Brett Bear is going to defend him? You think Martha Macau, you think Asa Hutchinson is going to say anything? Maybe Vivek, maybe Vivek Ramaswamy. I don't know. I am so fired up today and I feel like we are. I just got a text message, Mike, I'm having the same Tuesday you're having. We've all stepped into the twilight zone. Well, you know the good news? I'm normal, relatively speaking, you're normal. We got a lot of us normals who are going to get this country back and we must. Welcome aboard. It's Tuesday, an epic week, August the 22nd, 2023. We're in the Relief Factor studios. Our number is 800 -655 -MIKE. You know what us normals do? We congregate, we gather, we hold on to each other for dear life. So let's do that right now. I want a bunch of calls. Honest to gosh, give me your honest reaction to Joe Biden traveling to Hawaii and talking about his wife's car accident where she was killed in the 70s and the kitchen fire that was contained 15 years ago. That was how he felt he needed to comfort the people of Hawaii by. I gotta, tell me you think he's gonna be on the ticket next year. There's no way. 800 -655 -MIKE, 800 -655 -6453. Hope you join us.

A highlight from The Indictment of Donald Trump: A Threat to All Americans
"And I'm going to say it just like that. It's bullshit. Why? Because you would never, ever, ever bring these charges against Hillary Clinton. You would never, ever, ever bring these charges against Stacey Abrams. It's political. It's targeting one person. And you know what? I'll say this to him, Mike. When Donald Trump says they're coming after you, I'm just in the way, he's 100 % right. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with Mike Speraza. Mike, I think mostly we're going to talk about Trump today, but we have to talk about another dredge of our Erie County community, Mark Poloncarz. But we'll save a little bit of that news about Mark for last. Another fearless leader in New York. Man, what's worse than fearless? He's fearful. He's fearful of his own reputation is all he's really fearful of. That's what I'd say, but we'll save that for last. You do not want to miss his response to the two rapes by migrants, I should say. You do not want to hear his exact ... We're going to read the exact Facebook post. I won't even summarize, I'm going to read you exactly what he has to say. You don't want to miss that at the end of the show. Filled with compassion, I'm sure. So Trump indicted for a fourth time. This is not unexpected. This was by Fulton County DA Fannie Willis. This is for election interference and Trump and many others actually must surrender by August 25th at noon, Mike. Your thoughts initially on Trump being indicted for a fourth time. Well, it's not shocking because they've been telling us for weeks that they were going to make a show of this. Atlanta or Fulton County, they have literally been talking about this for months. They've been talking about mug shots. They've been talking about the whole song and dance of an actual bringing Trump in and going through the fingerprinting, going through the photos. They've been doing this and telling us this for months. So it's not shocking. What is shocking them, Mike, is that you've seen the polls, right? Every time this happens, Trump's numbers skyrocket. His fundraising skyrockets every single time. And now they're doing it again. And this might be the most ridiculous of them all because of the charade and the show that it's going to be. If I was going to use an example, if I'm a Barack Obama and I'm the leader of the party, not saying he is, but maybe he is, I'm saying to myself, the last thing that I want the media and I want law enforcement and I want the legal system to do is prop this guy up anymore because every time we do it, it backfires at us. I'd be like, keep this guy out of your mouth. Keep him away from you. I don't want to hear Donald Trump. I don't want to see Donald Trump. But no, they do the opposite. And I think their hope is, Mike, they get him on one of these charges. I don't think it matters. The people that are voting for Donald Trump, myself included, I'm going to raise my hand. I am voting for Donald Trump no matter what happens. He could get convicted on all 75 indictments and 400 years in prison. I don't care I'm voting for him. Now, if something came out that he was like a child molester or an actual murderer or something, of course that would change. But based on these four indictments, no matter what happens in the courtroom, Donald Trump is not, it's not even a question. He is my vote. I am voting for Donald Trump. That is the president. Yeah. This, this once again, I think shows how self -serving, narcissistic and how deeply Trump derangement syndrome runs in a lot of these people's heads like Fannie Willis. This is the, the reading, I guess I'll, I'll use this out of an article off of Fox. Let's, uh, let's see this by, oh, this was seven hours ago, Houston, Keene of Fox news. This says a 97 page indictment. The charges include violating the Georgia RICO act RICO. If you don't know what that means, racketeer influenced and corrupt organizations act often, I think you'd hear that it may be for mafia activity, drug activity, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree conspiracy to commit false statements and writings conspiracy to commit filing false documents conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree filing false documents and solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer. Now former Trump white house chief of staff, Mark Meadows, attorneys, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Kenneth Chesbrough, Jeff Clark, John Eastman, and others were also charged out of this years long investigation. Interesting Mike years long investigation. And here we are, August of 2023, just before presidential campaigns really heat up and debates begin. Let's talk about the timing of these indictments. I mean, we had Alvin Bragg start this whole parade off with falsifying business records, uh, you know, accusations against Donald Trump, which was total bullshit Manhattan DA, right? Alvin Bragg Bragg, next federal charges for holding classified records at Mar -a -Lago also bullshit. Go ahead. Justice department council, Jack Smith, then for the January 6th, uh, involvement, he says that Trump had basically instigating that whole event. And then further with, you know, just to layer on it, it was like icing on a cake. He had to hold Trump accountable for even more. And then finally Fulton County, DA Fannie Willis. So just the timing of this, it seems so orchestrated, um, I don't think there's any question in anybody's mind. I don't care who you are, that this has been an orchestrated attempt to take down Donald Trump. So in case nobody saw this yesterday, cause I'm sure you did, and I'm not saying you Mike, but people listening may not have, um, Sam bank from freed, uh, there was news that came out about him shelling out a hundred million dollars of stolen money, by the way, from his FTX funds to Democrat, uh, you know, nominees in the 2022 midterms. So the same day we see this crook, which we all knew were, was a crook by the way, you know, let's not forget that we all said this for a long time. This guy gave a hundred million dollars to democratic candidates across the country. That is on the same day. Also the whistleblower confirmed, um, some of the stuff in the Hunter Biden trial just yesterday. And then this comes out by the way, Mike, we forgot to mention this earlier, Fannie Willis, the genius that she is, ends up screwing up this indictment by the way, and putting it online for public knowledge before they even talk to the grand jury. Right, right. So they were working fast and they were working fast for a reason, right? This is just another show. And again, I'm here for it. I'm on the record. I'm here for it. Why? This is cementing. Donald Trump said he needed one more indictment. I'm going to say he needs one more thing. He needs the Fulton County mugshot and it's over. Once we get the mugshot, this race, not the primary is already over. The primary has been over. Once we get that mugshot, the, the 2024 race is over. It's over completely. That will set Donald Trump over the edge. His face will be on every t -shirt again, raising my hand, I'll buy 20 of them. The Donald Trump mugshot will take him through and carry him through the 2024 election. It's over. Yeah. And this, to your point about this leak, Fannie Willis essentially just simply said, I can't tell you anything. Of course you can't, right? So this was Monday. This is, this is official. The office of the Fulton County clerk or superior and magistrate courts has learned of a fictitious document that has been circulated online and reported by various media outlets to the Fulton County special purpose grand jury. While there have been no documents filed today regarding such, all members of the media should be reminded that documents that do not bear an official case number, filing date and the name of the clerk of courts in concert are not considered official filings and should not be treated as such. This was not a simple mistake is what, uh, let's see here. This was Trump attorneys, Drew Findling and Jennifer Little who slammed this. This was not a simple administrative mistake. A proposed indictment should only be in the hands of the DA's office, yet it somehow made its way to the clerk's office and was assigned a case number and a judge before the grand jury even deliberated. How could that be, Mike? Well, how can it be and how can this not just be thrown out? You know, if anyone believes in rule of law and equal justice, how can this just not be thrown out? I think to your point, Mike, like I totally agree. I think nobody who has supported Trump from the beginning has lost the feeling of support for him. I mean, if anything, it's grown and grown and grown. And then the other thing is you just wonder, will independents or any, any liberals at all liberals like Bill Maher, will any of them say, I cannot, I cannot in my right mind vote for anybody on the left anymore. They've taken this far, far too far. And I mean, it's like basically over the cliff and they're falling, waiting to see how hard it's going to, you know, how hard they're all going to hit. Here's the problem, too. In the last six years, we've had numerous people challenge elections. By the way, two of them were that I'm talking about right now were liberals. Hillary Clinton still doesn't believe she lost in 2016 and is on the record saying that. And Stacey Abrams has it, Mike. So if you really give a shit about, you know, hey, we need to bring people to justice, then do it, then go after those two. This is my problem with this whole thing. Like all these liberals, like Harry Sisson, Mr. Gen Z, oh, finally getting justice. That's bullshit. And I'm going to say it just like that. It's bullshit. Why? Because you would never, ever, ever bring these charges against Hillary Clinton. You would never, ever, ever bring these charges against Stacey Abrams there. It's political. It's targeting one person. And you know what? I'll say this, too, Mike. When Donald Trump says they're coming after you, I'm just in the way, he's 100 percent right. What does he mean by that? They don't give a shit about Trump. They do, but that's short term. They know that at most Trump's got four years left. They give a shit about all of us that can think clearly and that know they're all full of shit. That's what they're concerned about. The MAGA movement, they're petrified of it. And they need to take out its leader. And they're coming after us next. I promise you that. Well, let's talk about what can actually work in terms of Trump getting elected, in terms of stopping this crazy liberal freight train. Is it simply election? Is it actually GOP members stepping up and actually getting the balls to do something? Like do something. That would help. Stop threatening. Stop reporting. Like they're the town criers. Oh, have you seen what's going on there? Whoa, that's wrong. Oh, my gosh. What's this Fannie Willis thinking? Whoa. What was Alvin Bragg's thinking? This is this is unconstitutional. You just hear it. It's like it's like just it's like white noise now. You just hear all the Republicans, those that even want to say anything. How about the ones that never say anything? What are we paying you for? Like honestly, what are we paying you for? You're not passing any great legislation. So how about you just get a set of balls and say something? Say in something support or in not support. All you like to do is is sort of thread the needle. Stay on that tightrope. You don't want to go one side or another of the tightrope. You feel like, well, if I support Trump too much, that's not going to look good. But oh, if I if I don't support him, oh, my gosh, what are people going to think of me? Like stop thinking of what others will think of you. And how about you stand up? How about like a Vivek Ramaswamy type of statement where you actually you understand what's going on in this country and you actually take a side and you don't care who politically the person is. You stand up for what's right or what's wrong. I mean, I'm so tired of this. So do you think elections will make a difference? Do you think that some GOP members can actually make a difference? Do you think the the judicial system might make the difference? Do you think a lot of these things are just going to go basically down? I don't see them going down in many of these states. I mean, in Georgia and New York, D .C., D .C. I mean, I mean, really, like you look at this and you think, boy, these just have to be appealed and probably all the way headed right to the Supreme Court. My thoughts, honestly, are the Supreme Court right now can help. But at this point, forget Kevin McCarthy, forget Mitch McConnell, forget all the bursar artists that are in Congress, forget them all. If there's one thing that can change this and it's you, the people, you, the people are the only thing that can change this political weaponization, this political persecution. And to be honest with you, this banana republic government we got, there's one thing you can do and it's vote and it's go vote for Donald Trump. That is the one thing that we can do, Mike. Forget the courts. Forget all that. Go vote for Donald Trump. That is the only thing that we as Americans can do. Your congressmen won't do it. Your congresswomen won't do it. There's less than I bet, Mike, two percent that actually know what the hell is going on or are not part of that uni -party. There's less than two percent. I'll say a Matt Gaetz is one of those, right? I'll say a Byron Donalds is probably one of those, right? Those types of guys are the people that we need. Now, again, even with them, there's not enough of them, Mike. We need us, the voter, to take care of this. Go vote for Donald Trump and get rid of the con men. Get rid of the B .S., the Bidens, the Clintons, the Obamas. Get rid of them all. Go vote and take care of it. So it's easy to become just sort of a witness or a spectator to all of this, right? We all sit back and then at your kitchen table or as you're having a beer, having some chicken wings here in Buffalo anyway, maybe across the country, just not as good. You start talking about these things. And then to your point, Mike, people at election time think they need to just distance themselves from these things. They need a mental health break. They need to just they need to just watch and see what happens. Let's just see how the cards fall. Well, this house of cards that Joe Biden's administration and he has built, it's coming down, guys. I mean, it's burning like Maui right now. And it's just it just hasn't come to your doorstep yet. That's the problem. Until it hits your doorstep, you're not evacuating, right? You're not jumping into the ocean like these people in Maui have had to do. It's just a terrible tragedy there, which, by the way, Joe Biden doesn't have any time to comment on. By the way, let's not forget that, you know, actual disaster going on in California and Hawaii right now. But Joe Biden, baby, he's got to go ride his bike. He's got a vacation. So don't don't interrupt that. He's actually headed, I think, this week to Texas or something to can't find his way to Hawaii, though. God forbid he does that or God forbid he sends his vice president. Can't do that. How vile is that team that he has around them around him? I mean, they're the ones running the show. We know that. So it's just a it's such a corrupt and vile group to not say we got to get Joe out in front of the microphone for this. I mean, we've got to at least talk about the lives being lost, the federal assistance that we're going to provide, just something. Not a thing. And that's not Joe Biden. I mean, Joe Biden can't can't make sense of anything. And we know that. Like, that's clear. We know that. I mean, there's so much evidence now to say that I can say it without really saying, well, you never know. No, we know. But his team. Yeah. I mean, Dr. Jill, what are you saying, Joe? Maui's burning like it'll likely be thousands of people will have died on Maui because of fires and extreme wind and spreading of the wildfires. And he doesn't set a word. And you, Jill, don't have a you know, at any like no respect at all, no, no decency to tell your husband, get in front of a microphone, for God's sake, and say something about the people on Maui. They're U .S. citizens. But to your point earlier about voting, that's the problem. People get what I call election dementia. They completely forget how we got to the extreme, horrible, horrible conditions that we end up getting to. And then at election time, Mike, right about now, somehow the Democrats are going to come out and say, wow, look what's happening. Climate change is destroying island, beautiful islands like Maui. Crime is it's just it's taking over American cities. We can change that. We will help you. We will give. Right. We're Santa Claus. We will give. And then everybody votes for these people again. Yeah. And by the way, you know, Mike, to point of we will give the we will give costs everybody that actually works money. Right. So it sounds great in theory. Yeah. I said this to my mom was text me the other day about I forgot what it was. And I'm like, oh, you didn't know that money just grows on trees. Yeah. You just go over there. I'll just pick off that leave. It's money like that. That's what government treats everything like. And like we talk about all the time, we're both business owners. If I say to a company that I'm doing advertising with, you know, just give me give me five million. I'll take five million dollars advertising. No, no worries. Then they say, Mike, you got to pay for it. Well, what? That's not to pay. I thought I only had to pay ten thousand dollars. What do you mean I'd pay five? That's not a good deal for me. Yeah. What? Well, Mike, you signed a contract to pay us five million advertising. No, no, I didn't. OK. You know what I'll do? I'll just go ask all my clients for an extra five thousand dollars apiece and I'll pay my advertising. You can't do that in business, right? It's the business owner, the government, that if you're going to make deals, you've got to live with those deals and pay for them, right? Not expect everybody else to. What they do, Mike, as you always say, is they'll make these things up, right? And then they'll say, we've solved the problem. Crime? Yeah, we can't believe it's so bad either, but we have the solution. No, Kathy Hochul, you are the problem. You are not the solution. Joe Biden, no, you are not the solution. You are the problem. But Mike, to your point, the way they market it is that this, you know, we're here to save you. The problem is the saving comes from our pockets and the listener's pockets and the people that work pockets, the people that are retired that work their asses off pockets. And even then, Mike, they take all that money from us and it doesn't do a damn thing because they don't know what to do with it. Contracts. I mean, contracts involve people that have an intellect, right? You got to understand what contract are you stepping into. You've got to have integrity to follow through on the contract, right? The two sides agree to something. And you've got to then trust that each other will actually abide by the contract. Those qualities don't exist in many of these liberal progressive minds, intellect, integrity, trust. It's all about them. It's all about them. And then the problem is they will actually sign contracts and then think that it doesn't apply to them, even though they signed it. Right. So I think it's out the window now, like the idea of compromise and, you know, let's let's make agreements and all that. It's out the window. It's out the window. These people don't care. We see it every day. We see crime in cities and then we're told, let's not hold these people accountable. Let's let's let's deflect from the true reasons for these things. Let's hold guys like Trump accountable for actions that we can't even prove. But you know what? He has he has all the right in the world, Mike, to prove he's innocent. Right. That, according to Nancy Pelosi, this is upside down. And it won't turn right side up unless we get a guy like Trump, maybe just maybe we get a guy like Vivek Ramaswamy either side by side with Trump or somehow integrated within a Trump administration. And then maybe I have some hope, maybe some more optimism. And lastly, before we get to our pal Mark Polancarz, I do just want to say I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. And I mean this right. I don't care if you're a liberal, if you're independent or if you're conservative. If you think that this is the right way to do business in the United States, I say do business, not actual business, but you get what I'm saying? If this is what you think the right way is, then you need to go do some history on the Stalin regime, on Hitler's regime, on Benito Mussolini's regime. Do me a favor and go read about that. In those days, there were no such thing, Mike, as opposition, right? If you opposed, you got killed, right? And we're not killing Donald Trump yet, by the way. I'm going to say yet because I think that's next when all these sham four indictments don't work. That's where they're going next, right? So I hope Donald Trump has his taste testers. I hope Donald Trump has the secret service because I fear for that man's life and I pray for that man because I'm seriously concerned about it. This is dangerous. And if you are an American and you think this is the right way, there is something seriously wrong with you, right? Something said, you know, people could say, oh, Donald Trump said lock her up about Hillary. Okay. He did say that. Did he put his whole Department of Justice against Hillary Clinton like this? Did he do any of this? Because I don't think he did. No. Right. And some people wish he had done that. Right. I mean, a lot of us. Looking back, he probably should have. A lot of us say that might have been the only place he went wrong. He had a couple of years in power and he could have really slammed the door on all these accusations about Hillary Clinton and the bleach bidding of documents and the slamming and the smashing of cell phones and all that. He didn't do it. And we wish he would have. Would it have changed, turned the tide? I don't know. You know, we won't know. But after two years as a president, he kind of lost his ability to do it. I mean, he started to focus on America, which I'm glad he did. But I don't know. Well, I mean, we'll have to see how this one more indictment changes, turns the tide. Again, I think stalwart Trump supporters are not swaying. It's a matter of getting others to say, what on earth will it take for you to say this is a liberal, far, far leftist government that doesn't care about justice for all? Are you going to continue to align yourself with them or not? And time will tell. Let's talk a little bit about Erie County executive Mark Polancarz. Mark Polancarz has often been there at the forefront of cleanup, is what I'd say. One that comes to mind, Mike, was the winter storm and not adequately preparing and actually declaring an emergency. So I remember it like this, and this is just my recollection. We knew, we knew from the Midwest there were nasty, massive storms coming across the country, right? Ice storms, devastating winds like 70, 80 mile per hour winds. They were on their way. So we knew that the night before, let's say 10 o 'clock at night, 9 o 'clock at night the night before. And all through the night, we hear nothing. We hear nothing. We hear nothing. People get on the roads at 7, 730, 8 o 'clock in the morning, and then all hell broke loose. The snow was flying, it was blizzard, blizzard conditions, somewhat like the 1977 blizzard of western New York, of Buffalo. And everybody that was out on the roads was at peril. Many of them got stuck in vehicles. They ended up trying to leave their vehicles, and many, many actually died. And what did we hear afterward? We heard Mark Polancarz say, wow, this was just a devastating storm. Wow, we're going to try and get out there and save as many people as possible, right? We need to do all the right things. He came out, but he made a grave error by not pronouncing closing the throughway at 11 p .m. the night before, right? Or 10 p .m. the night before. Get off the throughways. Get off the roads. You will not be able to report to work, right? Government officials and everybody, right? They all love to do mandates, Mike. Why wouldn't he make a mandate then? So anyway, he's always at the forefront of the cleanup efforts. And he does the apology tour or the, you know, I'm not that bad. Come on, this went wrong, but I'm not that bad. What did he say of late? So this was sent to me actually by Stefan Mihaylo. Here we go. This is a Facebook post, folks. Now this is, mind you, a week after two people were raped, right? One person has tuberculosis in the area. All legal, by the way, shouldn't be here, okay? This is what he says. While the last few days haven't been the best I've had in office, I think back to everything this community has gone through since 2020. The COVID pandemic, the mass shooting, terrible storms, and the Christmas blizzard, the Damar Hamlin incident, Jason Arno's tragic death, and so much more. And know that a few political hits and rough days against me are nothing in the grand scheme of things, especially compared to what others have had to face. My team and I will come out stronger as we continue to work to create a better future for all. So as you can tell, Mike and I are a little hot today between the Trump indictment and this. Let me just say one thing. I'll turn this over to you, Mike.
Prediction: Joe Biden Will Drop Out of the Race, Ask for a Pardon
"A pardon for his son. Here's what's going to happen. Joe Biden, it seems likely to me he's going to drop out. He'll serve out his term. But Joe Biden, Joe Biden needs he needs to secure this pardon. And the only person he can trust right now to do it is Kamala Harris. The Joe Biden political machine will candidly be still strong, not because his approval ratings are high, but the president, even at his lowest moment, still has an enormous amount of power over donors, lobbyists and all this other stuff. Joe Biden will get Kamala Harris in a room, whether it's through AIDS or surrogates or winks or nods or Morse code, whatever it may be. He's going to get her in a room and he's going to say, listen, I'll put my political machinery behind you, which will still be substantial, my donor network and everything else. But I need a favor from you. If you win the presidency, I need a pardon for me, my kid, Ashley, the family, Jill and everyone else. Because no one mentions Jill. Did you notice that? What do you think? I thought she's a doctor. Is she like a neurosurgeon or something? Is she right, Jim? Does she like operate on people's brains? No, she doesn't, Jim. No, she's not. Oh, she's not. I didn't know. What does she do again? She's not a cardiothoracic surgeon, but she's a doctor. Oh, there are other doctors. What is she a doctor of? Reading? Jim says reading. She's a reading doctor. So she's a reading doctor. So she's clearly very smart. What did Jill Biden know about this? Oh, Dan, you can't talk about that. Really? So you can haul in Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Laura Trump, anyone else. Those family members are OK on fake up charges when we got a real charge of Joe Biden being a foreign agent. It's not OK to talk to the spouse

"Lost in Trans Nation" With Dr. Miriam Grossman
"Really excited about this interview, so let's dive right in. One of my actual doctor, unlike Jill Biden, who is not a doctor, she has a new book out that everybody needs to purchase, Lost in Trans Nation, excellent title, a child psychiatrist guide out of the madness. Doctor, the floor is yours. Tell us about your book. Well, Charlie, thanks so much for having me on. Basically, I wrote this book after a few years of seeing gender confused kids in my office and their parents and seeing the utter devastation that this this belief system, this ideology is breaking on our on society, on kids, on families, on our society in general. And the devastation is really more than anything I've seen. And believe me, in my 40 years of practicing psychiatry, child psychiatry, I've seen a lot. I've seen a lot of a lot of bad stuff. But this is the worst. And the reason is it is man made. These catastrophes of a child coming home suddenly and claiming that they're the opposite sex and demanding that their parents call them by a different name and new pronouns and take them to a gender clinic for puberty blockers and opposite sex hormones. This is a man made catastrophe. It's based on bogus ideas with no medical foundation,
Dan Bongino: White House Cocaine Likely Found on Residential Side
"Off. Oh, they just call. Okay. Just they're double checking with you. Here's what I think happened. I'm going to tell you why. I think it was found on the resident side. Now, it being found on the resident side would mean that what? goes Who on the resident side? Now, a reasonable person unfamiliar with the White House would say, well, residents of the White Yes, House. you are correct. The residents of the White House, i .e. the Biden first family, Hunter, the grandkids when they visit, Joe, Jill. Yeah, they live up there, but they're not the only people there. The White House residence is not like a normal house. You've got the Biden family. You've got ushers. You've got what they call White House carpet carpet. It's not it's a term for some of the people that do some administrative stuff for the White House. On the resident side of the White House, you have Secret always around the president. You also have tours that go through the East Wing that will go through portions of the East Wing, although not the residence per resident's side. I think it was found over there. Now, the original story was it was found near the White House and that quickly changed to it was found in the White in House the White House library, which if that's the case, ladies and gentlemen, that solves
Did You Have an 8-Ball on Your White House Bingo Card This Weekend?
"How was your 4th of July extended weekend, and how are you tonight? I am well, and the extended weekend was very good, had some fun, like Rick, took advantage of doing some cooking out, and drink some beverages you don't normally drink, like something with the tequila in it, maybe a little Coke. Stuff like that. Just sniffles. Yeah, have a good time. I'm good. I'm on to what you're doing already. How are you? I'm already on to what you're doing here. I don't know what you're talking about. I know exactly what you're doing. I'm on to you here. If you didn't... I'm sweating. I feel like I'm sweating, like just sitting here in this air conditioner. If you had an eight ball on your bingo card at the White House, raise your hands over the weekend. Now, I don't think many of you did, although it's really not that, I guess you could say it's not all that unsurprising, so a couple of things about it. What does Jean -Pierre have to say? Couple of things about this. Number one, how in the hell did they let this get out? How did this get out? If this just tells you Biden's time might be coming to a quick end here, this might be another sign, the fact that this actually got out, number one. Number two, all of the dissertations we're getting, and then Politico tonight as well, we may never know. We may never know. We may never know. We already know. We already know. That would be like finding some hooker in the Clinton administration in there, wandering around. We don't have no idea what she's here for. What are you talking about? We never know. We already know. Even Jill Biden knows. If you just... If you watch that video, and I'm sure many people have seen it now, and there's actually a screen grab from that video that people are posting, and you see Jill Biden, she is pissed

It is an amazing journey. I'm the breakthrough success coach. And i have a wonderful woman with me today joining me today. Is jill strickland brown. She has an amazing story of that. I am just going to ask chris. Share almost start to finish of. I met jill at a at what was called a curated conversation dinner a few months back and in talking with her. I just felt like wow. There's so much that. I want her to share now A lot of her journey comes from her work in the fashion industry. And this is. What's fascinating is that there's so many analogies that can be brought from the fashion industry to a whole life. I i so jill. Thank you for joining me. Thank you for your valuable time. And i'm really excited to beyond to thank you for the opportunity shunned. Yeah it's a pleasure you're going to. You're going to offer some insights to our audience. You set down a path of creating basically very early on. And you'd knew that there were that there were ways of kind of bringing forth who you are through Honoring both shape and drape like that. That's really good. I like it. I might use that guy joe. Totally gotta do get it get. Your book is called behind the button and it goes into that a little bit. Can you talk about your journey. Recognizing the You didn't you didn't start out owning a fashion store. You didn't start out Really enhancing women's looks. You started kind of where a lot of people start. which is you know almost at the bottom. Basically you talk little bit about that journey. Let's let's start with How did you know when you went to college where i did not go to college In my house we just financially wasn't an option for me so you know. I think i had a hustle in my brain. I saw Maybe i wasn't enough. Because i didn't have that piece of paper didn't have what everyone else had. But what i did have was drive. And i thought i had hustle because i didn't have that piece of paper and what i realized is what gave me was much more of an education because i was curious. Just like you're curious. George and i just took a chance on so many things and one thing led to another led to another and led to another so your journey and it stole journey in writing the book meeting the people and its before we jumped to to the right. There's just it's that's one big threat. Robbing the fashion industry. It's all worth it. So yeah i mean here's the thing is that is that is security and it is one thing that leads to another into another and what i wanna do is to back up and say okay. It did like the first thing that led to was. What before you answer that. I one of the things. I like to do on this. Podcast is to call out some of the lessons along the way already already. Just in your first answer you talked about. You know i- i- prompted you by saying you go to college as if that's a thing that everybody does and you said well i didn't which is fabulous and what you did with that was to stay. I felt like it wasn't enough in until like that. And that's definitely been the mission of my life as helping women say you are nothing you are beautiful and your beautiful inside and out. This is what we say. So that is the mission as you know being a kid. So you're saying you know. Start at the beginning. The beginning was you know being kid. And i was and it's always the star but My family of origin. I definitely did not feel enough. And there were factors in that. I was in a fundamental religion. And if you follow the rules you're in if you didn't follow the rules you are out so Early on i said okay. I want a different path. And i took that different pass and that's amazing. It is amazing so front not enough to sing darn it. You know what i am and you sort of you make it a declaration that took me fifty years to get there. Yeah fifty five dumb. It took me a long journey. But it's been an amazing journey. And i'm so grateful jazz. This is this is huge. That is one of the huge lessons is that sometimes you have to tell yourself that and tell yourself that and tell yourself that until you believe it in. It's like i have the drive. I have the curiosity. That's what's going to get me through and darn it somewhere deep inside. I must be enough A lot of people use the will not enough. That's why i'm driven. And i just really wanted to turn that into a lesson right now for our entire audience. Which is you are enough right now and you can let that drive you versus not enough oil then what what makes me enough. Not filling in anything that's empty. You're already whole and to really give that gift to our listeners. And our our viewing audience that you're already hole and A diploma doesn't make you whole a even the love of apparent or the acknowledgement of apparent. Doesn't make you whole that. you're already hole. And so you know you broke away from the mold. You were essentially out tribe like there's this in tribe and and Out tribe and you chose not to go along to get along that is so powerful just so powerful so you began work. I know this about you. You began work when you were fourteen years old. Yeah and you talk a little bit about that and then how that work led you to. It's it was almost this cascade of events that led you to the fashion industry and so without saying well and then one thing led to another specific as you can with will. This event happened in this event happened. And and that's what opened the door for me for fashion. And then i found myself working as you were. You were doing. I mean.

And, you know, when employees no job, And I think that what you just said, you know, it really resonated when you know why you're doing it. You almost want to innovate and do it more because you understand the, why? I think that's a huge piece when you're taking on such a project with such a large organization to help people get on track with the right mindset is to start with the Y. So, actually, I'm going to shift for a moment. I think I think our case is doing something really, right? I have to say, I mean, I follow you guys on social media. You're constantly pushing out phenomenal content. I mean, I'm not even in your industry and I find the work that you're doing fascinating, but I want to ask, you know, with all of these successes and all of these incredible stories and and infrastructure being built, right? Failure is such an inevitable part of success. And for you personally, I see a mobile leading such a large team. What are some perhaps failures or, or kind of mistakes, perhaps back back when you log Looking in retrospect that you thought at the time were big mistakes, but actually looking back, you can either say wow, that has helped me get where I am today or has taught me an important lesson about ex-boss. Yeah. The questioning a big thing for me, early in my career is around over-promising. And I think that's something that probably everyone can relate to you just want to get on with things and show that you're proving value and song just taking on all these projects and then you figure out that you can't deliver, or current weather them on time. And then a classic for me would be under estimating the work. That's, you know, involved in a major projects though and I mean this is one that I again, you know, repeated just recently. I mean, if you look at we just went through a brand refresh. And if you asked me at the beginning of that, you know, how long will this take? I would cheerfully said three to six months. I mean, that's as long as we need, we'll just kick on and then off we go. But when you're looking at different teams and cultures, and languages, and different ways of bringing the brand to log, It was a much longer project and we really needed to take the time, but it was a bit like an onion, you sort of Bill different layers, and you just kept going. And I'm glad we did all that because it got us to look at a whole bunch of things, you know, around brand and sort of making sure we had a, a good brand database in place and a few digital tools as well. So we're able to do more but it was ended up being more like eighteen months, but yeah, I would have had put happily gone. Oh, yeah. We can just whiz through that. So I think yeah, a big lesson for me throughout my career is that I get a bit excited. I want to drive thru change and I watch a show that I'm adding value. And isn't that exciting? And let the jump in? But I think you know you've got to learn my. One of my big lessons has been to learn to Pace the change. We change the right Rhythm, if the organization and in your industry and also with your people. So, you know, it doesn't matter how fast you spin the wheels, you gotta take people along for the ride and that includes. Being part of that organization and being a part of that and, you know, being in sync with the rest of the organization as well. So I think that is definitely a big lesson for me. I like that. Hashtag off the change. I think that the marketing campaign, I really, I think a lot of us marketers especially, you know, we're constantly trying to add value and fast and Fast and fast way. But there is some art to being able to Pace that I really like that might use that hashtag. So if anyone listen again, is going to look for this episode hashtag face the change. With that said, we're coming near the end and I have to ask questions for you. So I would be lying to you. If I said, I didn't research you prior to our interview. And one of the things that brought a huge smile to my face, when I did, was that the amount of people, the amount of colleagues your your employees who have nothing, but incredible things to say about you, and really see you as a strategic leader. I'd like to ask you today what time? You want most, when you think about your team and you think about your employees, what do you want for them today? What, what, what advice with them? Well, you know, in short, I want them to thrive at home. I want them to be able to bring their whole selves, to work and be themselves to have like, stability. You know, I'm a working mom, and it's important to me that people, you know, can take the time out when they need to and it's not just about the hours that you clock, you know, your desk. I think the world has changed and thank goodness for that. I want, you know, I want the teams to work on inspiring projects and how the spice to do that, do you know and not be overloaded. We you know lots of you know, other requests, I can't meet. So for me it's a leader. I probably think about that a lot and think about what can I do to help them, you know, and support them you know be a bit of a sounding board but also sometimes remove obstacles out of their way so they can get on with it phenomenal. And last question, it's my phone number. Your question to ask our desks. So we, we learned in this episode. Your mom, we learned, you're an amazing leader. We learned a lot of the challenges of moving, you know, mindsets in purchasing page, can you tell us something about yourself today that we are not able to find on your LinkedIn profile or if we were to search you on Google? Yeah, I guess one of the things that comes to mind but you might not be able to find out about me is that I have a real passion for making a difference at a personal level and I know that might sound a bit lofty. But, you know, I've, I'm, I guess I've come from a background where growing up my parents, my grandparents would always do a lot, you know, if the community service and charity work and those sorts of things and that really nice resonated with me. And it's something that I really tried to take forward and to your, to bring to my son and to try and teach him. Because I believe that, you know, it's not equal for everyone. They, you know, it's not a case of if everyone just works hard, they'll succeed and climb up the corporate ladder. I think sometimes there's a lot of inequality around and, you know, sometimes people sometimes people need a bit of a helping hand. So, even in this drawing, I'm busy. And I've got a lot of stuff on, but I think it's really important to me to find some time to take a step in that direction. I find it very grounding birth. I think that, you know, we're probably all have a role to play, and I think that will be a constant throughout my life. No matter what my role is professionally, I'll always want to do something in that space, I think that's beyond important. Um, what are some of the few can share? What are some of the causes or organizations? If you have any that, maybe we can after this show be, so curious to to research ourselves and learn a little bit more about? Yeah, sure. I meant current Mentor with the Smith family, which is an australian-based charity. So I do online mentoring with a disadvantage high school student. Can I do that over a couple of months once? Yeah. Once say a year you. So you get assigned a new student and I really take a lot from that, you know, I want to hopefully be a voice there to sort of encourage extra study or staying in school and took sorts of things. So yeah that's yeah, that's really good. And then closer to home here cuz I live in the Netherlands I just did a bit of volunteering. We had not for sale a group that look A The human, you know, the story, the survivors of human trafficking and, you know, was able to work shop there for that team and that was really inspiring as well. So look, I'm not saying, I've got all the apps and I'm an expert. I just like to try and find something in some element to incorporate my life Jill. It was an absolute honor to have you on this show. Thank you for getting radically transparent with me today, about birth control of CMO, and all of the community work that you're doing. And I hope each each and every one of us can find something in our communities, as a way to give back after listening to this episode with that. If anybody would like to be in touch with you learn more about arcadius or any of the organizations that you are part of, what's the best way to reach you? Hopefully LinkedIn.

"You're trying to really dial in your health or performance and and jill how a mill- replacements differ from protein powders. Yeah i mean. That's a good question. I really think at the different name for for the same thing right. I mean i hear the word meal replacement so it tells me that someone might be drinking a shake instead of eating. You know chewing a meal and so you can take a protein powder and turn it into a meal replacement because again up. A meal doesn't just consist of protein right and should have fat fibre. Maybe some additional carbohydrates and some essential fatty acids and so you can take a protein powder and mix it with water and chia and flax essential fatty acids and some fiber could have berries for carbohydrates and additional fiber and become more like a meal. So i think it really depends on. What are you mixing in with it and again. What is your intention. Are you trying to temporarily. I think junior mentioned maybe people do this. Replace a meal or two a day with a shake A part of your weight loss journey and eat you know and then each physically eat and chew meal which i think is important at least once a day That's different than if you're just drinking some protein powder mixed in water. Help get your poteen levels up. And so they're one and the same but it depends again on what your intention of it is well. Listeners are loving this conversation. I just got an email and it says that protein shakes. Make me congested. I know you're going to touch on this. Let's talk about it casey. And could that be the culprit. i would. i say if it's a way protein or has any dairy derivative that would be my. I suspect Because we've talked a lot about this in the past and now you have other experts that have been on who talk about the impact of area on the body and for me even personally. I can't dairy. You can see if. I love because my first symptom. Is i get congested and buggery and mucus my throat. A lot and no one wants to live like that right it could be. I'd be paid for my first recommendation. State would be to excuse me. Switch off away your way protein to something that dairy free whether you go to plant based one or a a beef protein bone broth protein. There's a couple of options there but if it's very based poteen would that would be the first thing and then just again make sure. You're not mixing in milk or something like that. When you switch your protein powder because again it would be to try to go dairy free if using a plant based powder then again. you're observing. What am i missing it with is. There's something in here whether it's a sweetener protein source as potentially triggering this triggering this reaction you kind of have to put your detective hat on and see what could be coming from So much so much more to talk about.

This is banking reimagined. What's in your wallet? No, it's in my wallet. Mark my little vaccination card. I did not get it laminated as you advised against, But I put a little a little cover on it, so it didn't get damaged in any way you have it in your digital wallet. I don't have. Unfortunately, I cannot get into this stupid New York State thing. It might record is not there. I don't know what's going on. So Anyway, Let's get back to talking about education planning on do this. Next part of our interview with Brent Weiss of Facet wealth, I tell the story of Kind of the most egregious kind of bad financial advice is you can get. It happened to me personally with a friend of mine who got the bad advice and I had to tell him about it. So here's more of our interview with Brent twice I used to find when I was in the business, You know, now it's a million years ago, right? That you would run into these people who have 5 29 plans that were sold to them but weren't in their best interest. I'll give you the best example. I put this in my book because it's a true story of my friend got kind of pissed at me because I put it in the book, but I made an example of him. So a friend of mine is a doctor in New York. And he said, Can you just look at this account for me? It's like my guy told me to buy this thing. It's a 5 29 plan. I presume everything's fine and I just put a ton of money in there. I look at the plan and I say Why did you buy this? He goes by thought 5 29 plans. Okay. I said I know you're New York Guy. You live in New York and someone sold you a Rhode Island 5 29 plan And that 5 29 plan from Rhode Island number one stinks. And number two is more expensive than the plan. And you didn't use the New York plant. So you don't get the New York State benefit that you get from taxes. Is that still happening? Please tell me not Brent. Unfortunately, it is O s. So you bring up a lot of really good points here because because number one, and this is actually really important for for the audience here When you look at a 5 to 9 point, first of all all 50 states have a state sponsored 5 to 9 plan. On top of that. Ah lot of states have an adviser like option, meaning you can have a financial advisor manage of 5 to 9 plan for you, and that's where this conflict of interest comes in. Because that case someone's like, Oh, I can make a nice commission on this because there's 5 to 9 plans can pay a nice commission to a financial advisor. My opinion on this matter is you don't need I think you can You work with a financial planner to help you understand? Should I be funding a 5 to 9 plan and how much but in terms of the investments within it, a lot of these 5 to 9 plans run through states have college age like retirement date fun, But they're college date funds. I'd say if your kid is five years old or so years, the portfolio for five year old If the kids going to school in 2030, Here's a 2030 fun. You don't need to pay somebody for that ongoing advice within the 5 to 9 point, Yes. Understand how it impacts your plan? Yes, understand how much the fund But really understand for doing anything. How much is going to cost? Is there a better option? And frankly what we taught you mentioned a couple minutes ago, the Cfpb professional designation. Before you work with any financial advisor. Ask them the questions you you deserve to know the answers to around this are you of fiduciary? Do you have to do it right and best for me? Because if they do Never to come back and say the New York plans best for you actually used the direct plan that's less expensive. I hope you make the right decisions and then you'll be in a good spot. Hey, by the way, considering that you are a collegiate athlete did you have to actually pay for college at all? Luckily for me, I was a and athlete coming out of high school. So I had five schools offer me a scholarship. I chose the University of Notre Dame. I got a partial ride there had to pay for something I came out. Actually. What about the average in student loans that most do just around $30,000, But it is a reasonable amount. Interest rates were really low back then. My interest rates like 2%. Wait a minute. So you still had so you only got didn't you get a free ride someplace new I got I got about a 75% ride. It was an academic scholarship. Oddly enough, so I was a student athlete and I played on the baseball team. But there's only 11.7 scholarships for 35 spots on the baseball team, so they can't actually give full rides toe to a lot of people or you have to be really good. You have to build it from the top of one of the top of, of course. Yeah, so I got most of it funded. So when I had to make a very hard decision, I just sit down and go. Can I afford to go here? But given the quality education, the school the baseball team, I chose that and it's been a great decision for me, which is why, you know, student loans aren't necessarily a bad thing. You just have to understand how they're going to effect..

My question is, how much that should I spend for a home based on my income and my retirement portfolio. The only debt is a car loan, which he plans to pay off this year before purchasing a home, he says. I received $3800 each month from my pension. That's good. My health care premium is deducted from my pension. I've got 40 grand in cash. I've got $100,000 in a Roth IRA. A and I have $800,000 in my regular for a one K. My current budget is $5600 I spend about 4600 and put the rest towards building my cash savings. That's great. One last thing I'd love to travel and liked to allocate about $10,000 a year on travel after I purchased my home. Well, I mean, look, you can back into this just by talking to, um, a mortgage broker because I think that one thing that's clear is because your most of your assets are held in retirement plans.

"That money down on your student loans just yet. So I think that if you have this whole year ahead of you, and we know what the rules are going to be around for barons for student loans that might be much more helpful to you and think of this. I know that you're probably saying I'm getting 0% in my cash account. I get it. Right now, That is just the price you're paying for easy access and liquidity. You know, you could put it in a higher interest, money market or higher yielding savings camp. A truly, I think would be very much in your best interest. To think of that is I am paying a price to have safety. That's all it is. Okay. Huh? The old retirement account. Is there any reason that you should move your old retirement account into your current retirement account? Just to make your management easier? Not really. No. And I think then I could also do. Rock convert exactly on that zero some point. That's exactly what I'm thinking. So why don't we roll the old one into your current for one k? And will you promise me to do one thing? Jason, will you call me back before you actually decide like when you're going off on this great adventure so that we can talk a little bit about where things stand? Sure. Yeah. All right. I encourage you to do that. Everyone's gonna want to hear where you're going. So this is going to be interesting. I think the game plan of 2021 is your year of transition. Get yourself set. Get yourself ready. You may be booking your trip in the fourth quarter of this year. You know, like, I'm not saying you're not going to do that. I'm just saying this is the time to really concentrate on Building up my cash and making sure that I'm at least thinking about other ideas. And, you know, maybe the best idea. You know, they always say the easiest time to find a job is when you have one is just talk to other people who do cool stuff. And so tell me more about what you do. Maybe that's an idea that's worth pursuing. Right. So just like, maybe once a week Make it a priority to talk to someone in a different industry. And, like, interview them D curious and see if there's something that jingles and jangles and makes you excited, Okay? Sure. Yeah. I think that's it any other questions for me before I crush your dream further? No, no. And I think I think at least a little bit of my dream has survived, So I'm sure a little smidge of it. All right. Good. Jill Schlessinger. Dream crusher. Extraordinary. I apologize. But anyway, I wish you the best of luck. And I thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks for having me.

So send us a picture of your little creature. We'd love to put him or her up. Your gender, non specific dog or cat or whatever. Okay, let's go and take a voice of reason. Here. We're going to weigh in on a sisterly debate. Next up. It's Kim Kim's not her real name. Don't tell anyone. She is on the line. He is calling from New York. Not even calling. Just connecting from New York. Kim. Welcome to the Jill on money show. How are you? I'm good. Thank you. How do you feel with your alter ego right now? It's you know, it's like trying on a new hat. It's kind of exciting. Yeah. I mean, it's not bad. I gave you these names, by the way, because you have a question for you and your sister. So I was able to basically use me and my sister is your name. So you're Kim, which is like my sister. We'll talk about your sister. Quote unquote. Jill? Yes, said it, So tell me what's going on for the sisters in New York. Sure, so we're having a debate. It's kind of funny. Both of us are full time jobs, and we make this the exact same salary, which is around 200 K a year. We totally intend to Max out each of us for one case. But I believe that we should put most of our savings into. I should put most of my savings into a rock for one K because I think the tax savings I'm going to get like basically knocking my salary down. $20,000 isn't going to make that much of a difference. But she thinks that it's better to do like a traditional for one K under the assumption that her income might be lower retirement, So right. This'd a great question. It's like the sister Slam, but okay, so based on tax records, you both single, right? Yes, I have. I have a partner and we're talking about getting there. So she's single. I'm in a slightly different situation, but as of right now we would be filing individually. Okay, So let's do the individual first. And then we can talk a little bit about, you know, sort of the theory behind this. So as individuals you both are facing the top tax bracket of 32%. Of course, it's not on all of your income. But I presume that your sister is sort of saying to herself. Well, if I could knock that 20 grand off the top of my income that 20 grand would be taxed at the 32% bracket. So why not pull it back and not avoid that taxation, which is certainly a reasonable idea here. Okay, So there's no doubt about that. In your case. Of course you know you're saying I'll pay my 32% right now because I don't know what the future's gonna bring. And I want to know that I've locked in my tax liability. You're kind of both right? 32% a real tax bracket, So it's not as if you're like. Oh, I'm paying at the 22%. But let me ask you a couple of follow up questions. For example. You each make about 200. Do you think for each of you let's talk about you first. Do you suspect that your income will rise over the course of your career? I think it could a little bit more. I don't. I'm not expecting, like massive gains. But I think it could Okay. And how old are you? Camp? I'm 47. How old is she? How? Sister Jo sister Jealous 44. Okay. All right. So I mean, Here's the thing. I don't know where tax rates are going. All right. This is the real quintessential question, because if you think that her income would rise substantially, you're sort of in your peak earning years for the next 10 15 years. Right now, it is probably likely that you'll make more money just because everyone gets these inflation bumps anyway, right, so people do make more money. But if you're in a career where you think that things are going to accelerate dramatically in the future than that, So really good argument to say, Hey, you know what? I'm going to actually pay my tax today because I'm probably going to see a higher tax rate later. The other aspect of this is Well, where do we think taxes are going in general, and that's really the key here. You both live in New York. So you're in a high tax state and you're in a high tax city. So you pay a lot of taxes. There's no doubt about it. My question is and we put it out to the ether. When we say, Where do we really think taxes they're going. I think they're going higher. I really do air on the side of what you are considering because I believe It. It won't be 32% tax bracket, It'll probably the 35. Maybe the 39.6 again. I think that you could actually see higher tax rates later. The other part of this is how much money right now, let's just do each of you. How much money do you have in retirement accounts currently, so let's do you first. How much in retirement Pretax retirement. Pretax retirement I have about I'm going to say 250 almost 300 in pretax, Okay? And then what do you have in in Ross? I have a traditional rock. I read that I started a long time ago. 53,000. And then just in terms of like what I have in my employees right now. Probably allowed like 20,000. Okay, great. You're putting in the Max. So that's great. And what is your sister basically have a similar amount of money..

Welcome to anxiety slayer jill i shan. Thank you so much for having me so happy to be here. It's a pleasure. And congratulations on the success of your latest book. Be mighty what a fabulous book. And i know that you reached out to us quite some time ago to to get on and i'm and i'm glad you're here. It took us a little while but were here in. Your book is still out there and doing so well. So many great reviews. Yes and actually. It's great timing because the book just past her first birthday. Yeah be a celebration of about a year ago. I had the pleasure of speaking with dr steven hayes and he told me that that time that he pioneered act to help people with mental health issues feel fully think freely and live lives that reflect the qualities they choose and i'd like to begin our conversation with you sharing with us. How act can support women who often struggle with anxiety. Health things -iety in anxiety attacks. Yeah well act is a little different from some of the traditional ways. We go about attacking anxiety in that. The main goal of act is about developing psychological flexibility. And so this is really tuning in to the life you want and the person you want to be and showing up in doing what matters no matter what so. We often get caught in a trap where we do this waiting until thing you know like oh you know maybe i have a huge dream so i'll give you a personal example. I had a really big dream of doing a fedex. Talk one day and an opportunity arose to be able to do that. And i was terrified. I mean can feel my anxiety rising right now just talking about what we often do is say well i just i just need a little more expertise and i just need a little more practice and once i get my anxiety under control and i feel more confident and less insecure. Then i'll go ahead and do this. And what act is all about is becoming an observer of all those thoughts and feelings that we often get really hooked by and sort of we allow those thoughts and feelings to dictate our choices rather than letting what's important to us lead the way. The thing about doing what matters is it's going to come with anxiety because if it didn't matter you wouldn't care. Oh so well said. I used to do a lot of speaking an moved away from it moved into other areas of interest. But oh my goodness the number i would do on myself before speaking and i was very good very well prepared new speaking about once you got me on stage there is no turning me off. You couldn't shut me up right. But what i put myself through before it was something else and over time over practice and everything that lightened up but there was still that <hes>. My my speaking coach would say try and take that anxiety and turn it into excitement and some days. I could do that and other days. It was just a matter of forcing myself really to just do it right. And and i think you know the all gets a little bit confusing for human beings because sometimes when we feel panicky when we feel fear it's because we're endanger our body is saying you need to fight or flee if you're going to be safe but sometimes were having those feelings and it's you know it's a false alarm. It's a perception of danger when it's not really dangerous or what it is it's a quote unquote social danger that you know when you're public speaking you care that people think your competence and interesting that you have something of value to deliver and you think evolutionary early early humans weedon have fangs or clause or we didn't run fast. We had each other where social beings early humans who hunted and gathered and travelled together had a survival advantage so to constantly be checking your status in the group to make sure you know. Am i doing my part. Am i valued or am. I gonna get kicked out because if i get kicked out i'm dead and so we've really evolved to be creatures who compare ourselves to others and of course. Social media has made that far greater than it was ever intended to be. But it's this very normal natural thing we do to care what others think so that we don't risk getting booted from our tribe and so sometimes when fear and anxiety and panic and all that arise. It's not a sign that we need to go run and hide run to safety run to the comforts on. It's a sign that we really care about this thing that we're doing and when you're laying in bed at night and you can't sleep and the wheels are spinning in its to mayhem. You're not worrying about whether netflix's is going to go out of business. That's not what keeps you up at night. What are wheelspin over. As our family our loved ones our jobs the things that really matter the most to us and so part of act is really recognizing that our pain. Barring society is not the enemy. It's everything were doing to move away from it

"Jill Schlessinger can help you back to Jill. On money. You're back. It's Jill on money, and we are talking to Laura Long. She's a Harvard business school professor. She has written a book called Edge, Turning Adversity into advantage. And we recorded this before the pandemic. So that's why you're not gonna hear any mention of that. She's a real dynamo, and and I always find it interesting, even just the choices that she made in her own career. She was a tenured professor at warden, and she kind of leapt at the opportunity to go to Harvard Business School. I personally like Philadelphia a lot more than I like Boston, So I think that was probably a bad decision, but You can't just judge based on that, Kanye Anyway, in this next part of our interview with Laura, we are discussing leadership. You know, Every leader needs to figure out where the edge is. Every leader needs to figure out what it is. That's going to motivate the people who you're working with both up down sideways. You got to do a lot of management. So check this out. We're talking leadership with Harvard Business School professor Laura Wong. This is ah, very like, sort of back to my sports roots. You know, there's some people who are natural athletes. And so I I can teach somebody how to shoot a layup. Teach someone the mechanics behind a Beautiful foul shot, But I can teach them to be a great basketball player. So tell me about how you approach leadership. Yeah. I mean, it was a question, to be honest that I also asked myself if I was sort of even something like entrepreneurship. Can you teach entrepreneurship? Can you teach leadership? So the short answer is yes. Because because my business card says Professor of entrepreneurship and professor care go. I agree. You are an expert. That's right. But You know, The thing is, it's very much about building these. These ski mus and these patterns and these mental models. That's really where I think the power of learning and teaching something like leadership and entrepreneurship really exists. It's about this awareness of your own strengths and weaknesses. The types of organizations that you're going to be most optimally a leader for instances where what is the band in which you can operate where you can be successful or not successful? Or brute, force it or not, and it's putting yourselves in these situations so that you in a sense, gain your own intuition that you don't go in with with a situational type of arrogance because you think you've seen it, and now you're gonna import it into a different industry. It's about being able to sort of build these these mental models and going in and sort of acting and reacting and also Leading in a way where you think it's intuitive, but it's really based on scenarios that you've talked about and things in the classroom that we've discussed. That's really the power of the classroom. I think for for this, and that's why I think the classroom setting is still so important. To be able to learn and listen from from others. All right, let's talk about the book because I really liked it. I even said to mark and like I didn't read that other person's book because I had to read Laura's so All right. Let's just first define edge Would you say edges about knowing how when and where to put in the effort and hard work? That seems like easy to do, But actually, it's really hard. So can you talk a little bit about identifying edge and and how you know when to put that effort into the edge? Absolutely. I mean, this is something that is very hard. But at first glance, it seems like something very easy. So people are going Oh, you wrote this book. What are the 10 steps that I need to do to gain my edge? And the thing is, what this really is is a perspective. It's a perspective on what it means to have an edge. And the more that you make it authentically about you and your strengths and your weaknesses and who you are, the better your ability to actually create and gain that edge for yourself. The premise of it is that we're sort of taught from a really young age. That it's about hard work right? That if you want to be successful, and you want to get the right outcomes put in the hard work, right? You ask super successful people how they made it. And inevitably, hard work will be one of the things that they and you know what they always leave out. Good luck. Luck is good, too. Exactly. Luck is A huge portion of it. But luck is also things what we we see, His luck is also other people having given you opportunities or having some sort of a privileged background or luck and be a lot of different things. You know, when we talk about hard work hard work doesn't speak for its health. It sometimes does. But in most instances, hard work doesn't speak for itself. What do you think about this? 10,000 our thing? So I think that hard work is critical. And, you know, I think that it's a great way for us to see hard work or something that is very critical. But in my book I talk about how hard work is something that we talk about first, but in fact, hard work should come last because once you understand Some of these principles. That's when your hard work works harder for you. And that's where that 10,000 hours of practice ends up making that difference because you already get that the world is dominated by perceptions and attributions and that you have the ability To guide those perceptions and attribution so that your 10,000 hours in your hard work will work harder for you. What amazed me is that when you started that you said you, you know you sort of it requires a pretty brutally honest self assessment. You started talking about your story, Your origin story, and you said I was a bad engineering student, right? So You could have gritted through. You could have put in all the hard work necessary. What was it about that that you could see you weren't going to be a good engineer? I mean, I gritted it through college in the sense that I started it and I was going to finish with that degree. My dad had given me this piece of advice because I had said, you know, I wanna I wanna I want to switch majors and this is really early on and I said, I want to switch majors. I don't like this and he said he said to me, you you can absolutely switch majors, but You can't switch unless you know what it is you're switching into and that you're going to like it more than what you're currently in. It really was sort of one of those things where I was, like, Okay, I could be doing economics. But then off like I would take an economics class. And then I would, you know, Sort of like you. I don't know if I like this more or I would take something else and I so I kept Personally and I just I think it was one of those. I just didn't know what I wanted to do at that point, and so I just kind of kept going until I finish And like I said, I still to some extent don't know what I want to do..
