"In The New Yorker was written by command degree. He's a South African journalist who often covers the illegal trading of endangered animals, like abalone, which is how he found the sonoran desert toad, which was being foraged for its hallucinogenic properties. But that led him to a much weirder story about the number one toad guru. Okay, so you heard about this Mexican doctor named Octavia Reddick, who had become like the guy you go to to smoke toad. So you went down to meet him at his house in Mexico. And so first of all, can you describe what he looked like and what he was like to be around? Yeah, he is good-looking. He's kind of leanly muscular. He has long dark hair. He has a beard. Kind of like a telegenic cliched reincarnation of Jesus in a sense, like he looks like a guru. He looked like every cult leader on all the Netflix documentaries about cults. Yeah. Besides his good looks, he's very intelligent. He's very charming. He gives the impression that he really wants you to like him in a way that you don't dislike him for it. There's something almost quite oh wow. There's something quite pure about it. So you liked him. At times I liked him very much. And it was interesting to kind of notice that in myself, a lot of people like him very much. A lot of people venerate him, in fact, like a God, literally some people, and he hates shirts. Takes his shirt off quite often. Yeah. Octavio, the guru of toad, grew up in Guadalajara. His dad taught calculus at a college and his mom owned a bookstore. He went to medical school, got married, had a kid. But then he tried crack cocaine. And like many who try crack cocaine, he became addicted. His life fell apart completely. At one point, he takes acid, picks up a hitchhiker, falls in love with her and ends his marriage. Then, in 2006, a friend introduced him to the toad. Octavia says that as soon as he inhaled, his cravings for crack completely went away. He found peace. And his calling. He kicked his habit, he told me by locking himself in a room and smoking toad secretion for an entire year, which is just kind of crazy for me to think about that volume of psychedelic experience being compressed into a year. But he was clean for the first time in years, and then his, you know, he started offering it to friends and giving it to other people. This is a weird definition of clean, right? Well, he wasn't. Yeah, I suppose so. Look, like many other psychedelics heard secretion is not in any way chemically addictive. Or it's thought to be very low in toxicity as well. So it's not like a thing of cravings. Some people just end up using it a lot because I guess they like dissolving their ego a lot. I'm not sure. I am certainly not someone who would do that myself, but a lot of people do. Doctor octavio got obsessed with toad. When his brother visited his apartment, he said, quote, you would sit on the couch and a toad would jump out. He started looking into the history of toad and got introduced to the serie tribe and had them try it. The elders there started talking about an ancient tradition of smoking toad. And that gave octavio his sales pitch. Octavio got famous by making that very pitch at a 2013 TEDx talk at Burning Man about smoking toad. Which sounds like an onion headline. He stood up and he said, basically, I healed myself by smoking toad. That this medicine heal me of more than three and a half years of crack opening addiction. And then I went on a heal this marginalized native Mexican community and through that work resurrected this practice that had been wiped out. During the colonial era, which is about as good a pitch for a psychedelic as I think anyone would come up with and the craziest thing is that it might be true. There is no way of knowing if it's true. You don't think it's true though. I don't know if it's my place as a non indigenous white guy from South Africa to really weigh in. As another non indigenous white guy, I will weigh in. Non indigenous white people are eager to believe this. We love a story about how non white people can teach us simple truths. Usually that person's Morgan Freeman, but we'll listen to an indigenous tribe if it's an excuse to get high. If an indigenous person said, don't build this pipeline, we'd never listen. But smoking a toad were totally in for that. It's going to be direct way to discover something inside of you that you just have to remember because we have so lost. So thank you very much. Soon after the TEDx talk, white people with dreadlocks started arriving in the sonoran desert to smoke toad and spend money. Octavia became the world's lead proponent and practitioner of toad smoking. Like, if you want to go to the top toad smoking guy in the world, you travel to see octavio. Or just wait till he shows up with a basket of toads at your all day networking event in the Hollywood Hills. Toad smoking needed a rockstar because it's not inherently appealing. Not just because of its scary effects. Because the idea of its gross. You can romanticize eating a mushroom that grew up from mother earth, but extracting poison from a frog and putting that into your body does not seem like a good idea. Now, all my knowledge about toad comes either from this Michael pollan book about psychedelics or beavis and butt head. Are you sure you're lick and right? Yeah. I don't get it. It's supposed to pack an awesome buzz. And The Simpsons. Dad, are you licking toads? I'm not licking toad. And in those situations, people licked the toad, which is what I thought you did. But that's not at all what you do. If you lick practically any species of toad you're likely to be hospitalized and may die and some people have died from doing exactly that. So just licking a toad, all toads are a little poisonous. Yeah, they are. They are very choices. But in this case, you grab this specific toad, and I watch them do it, you basically go to these little bumps on their skin and you pop them like zits, and you put a glass above

"Week and on the terminal about how the digital asset turmoil is actually helping couples rekindle their relationships. I didn't see. Bloomberg markets senior editor Mike Regan and I got more from business week contributor Joel Stein as well as the markets and finance editor for the magazine, pat Ragnar. I think all of us who've spent any time reporting on crypto got to know people for whom crypto became kind of a defining part of their lives. A lot of the people listening to this are just ordinary finance workaholics who have a hard enough time sort of paying attention to this stuff. You know, when the markets are open, but crypto has this quality of never being closed even on the weekends and bringing a lot of things outside of people's peripheral vision and I think a lot of people have had a hard time kind of emotionally managing that and the side effect of that is that it's hard on people's relationships. But Joel, tell me how you kind of came on to this. These were some people you knew. Yeah, it's my friend Igor hiller, who's in the piece and he was the guy I always called when I ever got assigned to crypto story to ask him like the basics of like what the hell this is all about. And he was over for dinner with his longtime girlfriend. They've been together for like four years. And they told us the kind of like what started as a really funny story and turned really kind of sad and serious where they almost broke up. Wow. Because he wasn't paying any attention to their relationship because he was so obsessed with his crypto and hanging out with them and just checking his phone constantly and waiting for NFT drops. Just like degenerate gambler. You'd call it Dee jenning when he went into these kind of phases. And she kind of gave him an ultimatum that was either crypto or her. Well, you know, Joe, you mentioned those NFT drops. And I get the impression reading this that NFT is almost really worse than this situation because you're stuck there waiting for these things to drop and they can be delayed. Did you get that sense to that the addiction was almost worse when it came to NFTs both because of the time consumption and also sort of the potential upside in those as an investment, at least for a hot minute there? For a hot minute NFTs were, but throughout the entire crypto cycle, there was always a different thing that could occupy you 24 hours a day because crypto markets don't close. So during the DeFi farming phase, there is always some new farm that was opening up that you would get involved and get their coin real quick. Or there'd be a coin drop, right? Like people were creating new coins all the time. And Elon Musk or someone else would tell you that this was a hot coin you had to get and you had to get it when it was minted. So I don't think it was just NFTs. There was always some new craze that you had to get involved in. Maybe you had to simp some star in order to get involved in that in that Discord channel and buy I guess those are often NFTs. But yes, there was always a new craze. And even if you kept up with one of them, there'd be a new one that popped up. Pat come on back in on the conversation. Sure. Yeah, you know, one of the things I'm thinking about a lot with all of the really serious stuff happening now is that we've learned that markets can grow up faster than you can teach yourself how to think about them and I think also faster than you can teach yourself how to emotionally handle them. In the last two years in crypto, even for people who aren't investing in it, it's been something that has moved so fast that it just keeps you kind of like mentally and emotionally agitated. But I also kind of want to talk a little bit about the people who are the partners in these situations and Joel's sort of like what they felt like they had to do to kind of get a hold of their relationships and really bring their partners back from the brink. Yeah, and almost every case there was a guy and it was almost always a young. It was always a fact. We were looking all around. All we could find was a young man. And the numbers in polls and kind of play this out. There's a bunch of young men. And they get so wrapped up in this and they think it's going to be a life-changing moment that they can't miss out on. It's all fomo, and that there's going to be generational wealth created for their grandchildren. If they just stick to this one thing. And they all kind of were able to get their spouse or more like their girlfriend involved to an extent, but not as much as they would have liked. And then their relationship started to wither because they were so devoted to this one thing. Joel, I wonder if these guys really are creating wealth through this if that sort of changes the equation with the wise and girlfriends a little bit to it. Were any of these guys actually doing well with their trading enough to sort of get the day passed from their wives and girlfriends? Sure. I mean, some of these guys on an exciting day could make ten, 15, $20,000. The guys I was talking to at least. And that goes a long way in convincing your girlfriend that it's okay. You didn't go out with her this weekend. But those days were few and far between, especially as the market started to dry up at the beginning of this year. But a lot of these cases eventually either because of the crash or because of ultimatums, the boyfriends somewhat came around and people were able to resolve their relationships in a lot of the cases where I talked to people. So Joe, what do you think happens if the crypto market takes off again or these guys encourage people or they learn their lesson, how do you see it playing out?

And this kind of thing has been steadily creeping from our computer screen into our wider political landscape. I'm Bridget Todd, and on my new podcast, Internet hate machine.

"Often together as they did in the first couple of years. This is my biggest pet peeve, by the way, when NBA teams do that, it's like, we're starting a lineup we know is not good and or our best lineup. And I understand there are some rotational concerns. Sorry to cut you off, but it's just a noise me so much when teams are like, we know this lineup is bad, but for some reason we feel like we have to play it. It's like, why? It goes back to when the thunder would start Kendrick Perkins in the 2012 NBA Finals. It's like, why are you handcuffing yourself when you do not have to when this data is so present? It's so easy. It just truly angers me, dad. Yeah, no, I mean, I can see your passion. I want you to chill out a little bit. But what I would say is, you need to figure out what you have, right? And the reality is they haven't had. They didn't have any time to figure that out. Had been Simmons been able to play in the back half of last season. Maybe they would have or after the trade deadline last season. Maybe they would have gotten some early data about what it's going to look like. You can conceptually say, I don't think two non shooters is going to work even if you got Katie and Kyrie. And insert Royce young insert Seth curry insert Joe Harris, whoever's going to be the third wing there. But we need to see it because we think that this is if we are going to have any hope of protecting the rim clearing the glass, having any kind of interior presence, Nick claxton is probably going to need to be part of that. So then how do we and then the entire concept of what holes we're plugging on the team requires Simmons to be there too. So like we got to see how it works and then the answer is it can barely score a point per possession and it's getting its doors blown off on defense. Okay, so now we've seen that and we can say, well, now we gave it it. We gave it the old college try and we've got to figure out what else to do. The sneaky problem that they have, though, is just until all of those other guys are healthy enough to contribute in a major way. What other answers do they have? Daeron sharp is not going to dramatically change the fortunes of the team when we're looking at those two big lineups. Going more to patty mills makes you even smaller and more likely to get more susceptible at the point of attack. And then you're giving up straight line drives at the rim, which you can't protect and giving up second chance points because you can't defend you can't clear the defensive glass. So like the way their team is built is with Biggs who don't necessarily fit together and small guards. And you don't have a whole lot in the middle and a whole lot of the ballast to kind of tie all that together. And when that's the case, you're gonna be a bad defense who needs to outscore people and right now they're the only team in the league that has two 30 point scores and they're still an average offense. Like the math ain't math in right now and that's like the challenge for them is I don't know how we can argue whether or not Steve Nash is the tactician for this job. We can argue whether or not Simmons just needs to be a different version than he has been thus far to make this all click. But they're also might not be a whole lot of answers and if that's the case and when what you're watching in terms of the basketball team isn't compelling or positive, everything else gets louder and when the stuff that's being said is as like venomous and nasty or the stuff that's being shared is as abhorrent and despicable as what has been shared and you turn the volume up on that, then nobody wants to hear what's coming out of there. I agree. I agree. It would be amazing if the amazing if you didn't, if you were like, yeah. You know what? I think they are going to turn it around. I kind of had some faith in this team before this started the season and I just regret it. They seduced me every time. And I'm just sick of them. I'm so sick of them. So sick of them that I would like to move on to please. Some other things I'd like to talk about today. UFOs, psychic powers, chemtrails.

The nuggets just lost so that previously winless Lakers on Sunday Night, the clippers, we talked about them last week. They dropped two in a row to the thunder. They haven't looked great, obviously they're dealing with this Kauai injury, which is a concern in its own way.

Because if you have an able bodied job, you're going to have healthcare for everyone else have healthcare is a type of healthcare you're going to get. And I think that is the problem. And what senator Warner want you to do is depend on the government. What I want you to do is get off the government healthcare and get on the healthcare. He's got to get your better healthcare. So that's what I'm trying to do to make you independent rather than dependent. Oh, what the hell Herschel? Why not? Warnock is on government healthcare. It works for the government. Literally. Okay. That's just. That was my favorite what the hell hurts you. Okay. Ladies and gentlemen, from three or four houses down, famous journalists, Time Magazine, et cetera, et cetera. Joel steins, your high Joel. Oh, thank you for having me back high. It's lame that I asked to be on your show. But you don't want a neighbor who asked to be on your show because then if you say no, it's awkward. Awkward when I'm running. No, I want it to happen. Well, you know, this was intentional. You remember you wrote about the time you stumbled onto my podcast 'cause the power was out. Yes. Yeah. Yeah, of course how I met you. And you said you said that that's like the third path you were on just on this street. And now you're here because you have your own podcast, 'cause you were literally the only person on this street because it doesn't have a podcast. I first of all, let me apologize for having a podcast. Both the listeners and to you. How do you feel about the fact that you have devoted your life to this craft? You're an expert at this craft? Yes. And now everyone thinks they can do it. Right? Some guy that lives up the street. The power went out, you stumbled in here. We were recording a podcast with Jen kirkman and Billy west. Yeah. Yeah. And then you stumbled on. I just wanted to know if the whites were out here because they were out in our home. And you would think if someone's continued to do a podcast, it means the electricity is on, but it did not. No. You went anyway. Yes. Brave. Yeah, we were just on the iPhone outside. And then suddenly you were on a guest on the podcast. Yeah. And we were like, oh, you're Joel Stein from Time Magazine. Oh, you live up the street. Okay. So now. So that gave me the confidence I needed. Yes. To launch my very own post. Yeah. Maybe I should. You know what? What the world needs now? Yes, another podcast. Yeah. I'm the last one. I'm literally the last person in America. But you know Joel Stein, I feel like also you stole this idea for me because when you say that we regurgitate, you know, eat the full news meal and then it regurgitate it like a mama bird into your mouth so that you don't have to like we said we watch Fox News so you don't have to. So this is basically what you're doing. It's a similar thing, but it's a little different in that we don't do any news. So we feel like people like your listeners are consuming a lot of political news and news in general. Right. But as an old person who used to write for and get magazines in the mail, there are all these kind of off the news. I think you're the only person on my street that still gets a paper. I see it. We have two. I know, 'cause you're committed to old timey journalism. I am just old timey in general. Yeah. It's so cute. I'm like, only toast. People newspaper in his truck. I'm dressed like Paul Tompkins right now. I've got a fedora suit. A boot near. Why was the last person to give up the physical paper? But anyway, so but go ahead. Okay, so back when I still get magazines on admit it. And they have these long people report for 6 months on some crazy story. There's nothing to do with today's news. And you know the stories used to go to a party and someone said, did you read this story in The New Yorker? And then you lied and said, yes. Yes, of course I did. This is that. So we just find those stories. Get the writer on. I have a discussion with them to tell you the story so you don't have to read them. Yeah. You should read them because they're great stories, but they're long. You know me, I won't, unless I can do it while I'm walking. Yeah. I won't. Let's see, this way I can. That's what we're thinking. Right, I can listen to your podcast about the thing. And I don't have to. I've just given up on people reading and writing and having other people do the reporting. Here's how it is described. Every week, Joel Stein picks a long magazine article that fascinates him and then actually reads the whole thing all by himself. I do. Then he calls his fellow but greatly superior journalist friend who wrote it, gets him to tell him all about it. He does the work. You get the stories more accurately. Some great journalist does the work and Joel Stein puts his name, Joel Stein on the podcast. That is it. It's called story of the week. It should be called credit haunt. No? I didn't think of that. Everything I do should be called credit hawk. We're calling it the story of the week, and I think it may have the best theme song of any podcast. Oh. Oh, really? Yeah. I'll put that out there. Okay. It's by do you know Jonathan Colton? Yes. Oh, yeah, yes. So Jon, I think I'll joke did our theme song. It's very funny. If you saw something, no, it was something about Mary? No, but that was I know that's not the Richmond. But they're very similar. People were very funny songs. Yes. Right. Okay. Well, at any rate, it sounds fantastic. It really does sound fantastic 'cause we don't nobody has time. Right. We marinate, I was saying, right? Travis, what is it? There's a afternoon stack. There's in the late stack. There's an early morning stack. There's another stack that I get here. I don't have time. People are still writing these like 20 page magazine stories that they like research for 6 months and risk their lives to do. And no one's reading them. So now the party conversation will be, did you read the article in New York? You'll be like, no. But Joel Stein told me about it. Oh, no, I'm hoping we go back to the lie. Where you listen to my podcast and then you get to the party and you're the jerk who says, did you read? This article, even in the Atlantic or outside, even though you haven't read it. I just love being that guy. You are the, well, you're the smarty pants on the street. Is that true? She went to Stanford. And whatever. It's just drinks like me, Moby, whatever. You're the brains of this. So you are the kid that we would all cheat off of. You're the kid who's homework. Everyone will be like, did you read that? I'd be like, no, but I cheated off Joel's paper. I like this. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't think about that about the street. This street is particularly stupid. Yeah. Yeah. I figured prominently in your last

"About this all morning, but I feel like a lot more shoes to drop a week after the J 6 attack and email landed in the top FBI officials inbox is expressing concern that some bureau employees might be particularly motivated to help bring just to justice to the rioters who stormed the capitol and threatened lawmakers lives. There's no good way to say it. They wrote, so I'll just be direct from my firsthand and secondhand information from any conversation since J 6. There is a best a sizable percentage of the employee population that felt sympathetic to the group that stormed the capitol. Several also lamented that the only reason this violent activity is getting more attention is because of political correctness. Okay. I literally had to explain to an agent from a blue state office. The difference between opportunists burning and looting during protests that stemmed from legitimate grievances about police brutality versus an insurgent mob whose purpose was to prevent the execution of a democratic process at the behest of a sitting president. One is a smattering of criminals the other is an organized group of domestic terrorists. The person also wrote that official in the FBI office in a red state said that more than 70% of that office counter terrorism squad in about three quarters of its agent population disagreed with the violence, but could understand where the frustration was coming from. It's we're so in the upside down that one of their conspiracy theories is the FBI was behind this and their deep state and liberal, right? When this is always been the reality, sources close to the investigation have told them BBC News, there has always been some special agents in the country who have resisted January 6 cases. Many special agents have been very proactive while others in various field offices have engaged in half hearted investigative efforts that seem content to let things Peter out. I hope they get to the bottom of that. I feel like Chris ray, Chris Miller, have a lot of explaining a lot of explaining to do. Just a little bit. As Ricky Ricardo would say. They got a lot of spleen to do. It's such a current reference. Thank you. Okay.

I turn on the television, I'm watching, and then what do I see? Another action by Donald or his group that is illegal, unethical. By the yelps, if any of your listeners, if you Stephanie, anybody. Other than Donald. Was involved in this? You would be behind bars already and God knows how long the sentence would be, especially if you had my judge, judge William H, only the third. If you had him, you could be in there for life.

"What is your take on all of this? Is just as karma, whatever you want to call it finally coming. Karma boomerang? Yeah. Yeah. Is it coming for Trump? Okay, so I do believe that indictments will be coming. I believe that indictments will be coming thank God to tish James our attorney general and I hope if she doesn't end up staying as attorney general, you know what they always say AG stands for. What?

And I would get people to support her because what she did, nobody else wanted to do. Alvin bridge certainly didn't want to do it. Okay, we at the end of this month, we have the DA's case against the Trump organization. I want to remind you started by our previous district attorney Cyrus Vance. So at least Alvin Briggs didn't muck that one up and then get rid of get rid of that case. I also believe that that will cause some significant legal challenges to Trump personally, not just the Trump organization. But what tish James did by being first one out there, she now has all of the documents, all of the proof she has forwarded the case to the southern district of New York for tax evasion, as well as to the IRS. So I do believe indictments will be coming. I believe that they will come before the end of the year. What bothers me again is this whole slow walk by our Justice Department. Oh, we can't do it now. It's only three weeks before the midterm elections. Ask me if I care. Yeah. Yeah. By the way, we want to thank you for saying mom care if we indict him on the day of the midterm elections. It's not guilty. He's not on the ballot. Yeah, exactly.

I notice you're wearing a very subtle Donald Trump behind bars T-shirt. Part of my mea culpa merchandise now, you could actually find it on itis touch, they opened up a merch store for me. The brothers are great. But one of the things it's fantastic because it's what it's what we need is a country. This man is a menace to democracy. He is, he is truly what our founding fathers of this country feared the most, that there would be a president that would ignore the three branches of government, the co equal branches of government and decide that he wants to use the power of the presidency for his own benefit. And that's what, look, did we not just see how much the Trump organization charged the Secret Service in order to stay at like moral lardo or any of the other dumb properties that they have? The answer is, yes, we now know. And why did they do it? Because he doesn't give a shit. Himself. Remember we talked about that? 8 seconds away. Thank God for 7. Mea culpa? Are you saying maybe apologize? I get this, yes. It angers me so much because I don't blame you. We all know that we all know Stephanie that he takes advantage of every single situation that he can. So why should this be any different? In fact, one of the things that I shared with both the attorney general, district attorney, 7 different congressional committees, is that the Secret Service had an office in Trump Tower during the during the what he called the 2015 2016 campaign that they were paying for. And he was charging them the highest amount per square foot ever attained in the. And their apparently still lying to protect him as a regards January.

"Yeah. Instead of having somebody call your house and look, I get these phone calls all the time. And I just hang up on them. But yes, says who I was right. I said that to you last time you were on. You were right, and I did have to ask. I don't know if you'll answer, but you know, the polling data that Paul Manafort shared with Russia in those swing states were Trump eked out a victory, did you know something about that? Was there something behind more behind that says who than we knew at the time? So I had seen the poll that they were going to be referencing, though they never referenced it by name. And the poll was of 800 people or a thousand people, which is a huge poll in the old way method of doing it, picking up the phone. So I know that Stephanie Miller, for example, is a Democrat. And that she's been voting for 30 years and has never voted for a Republican in her entire life. Regardless of who it was. Actually, I voted for Ronald Reagan. Well, I know that if I call you, I know what the answer is going to be before I even speak to you. And if I'm successful in getting you, the poll that it was something like 800 people were, you know, staunch Democrats and a hundred were Republican and a hundred were independent. So I knew where the poll was going to go. And so I had said says, who I was hoping to draw out for her, the name of the poll so that I could then use the statistics that I knew on that poll. Right. Right. Okay. So the new book obviously revenge how Donald Trump weaponized the U.S. Department of Justice against his critics. You were just saying, not because it's just because it's your book, but it should be really like a cautionary tale that everyone reads. Tell us why. Revenge is the dissection of the most corrupt investigation into a United States citizen in American history.

Well, you know, the last book, the one I mentioned you in. It was called in defense of elitism. Yes. Why I'm better than you and you're better than someone who didn't buy this book. Right. So when I see people like Herschel Walker, and by the way, in some way, I feel bad for Herschel Walker. Herschel Walker should not be in a position where he's running to be U.S. senator. Right. He shouldn't be in a position where he can eat pudding without a rubber spoon. No, he should be playing football, talking about people playing football. Right. Maybe selling reverse mortgages during football used to play football. Right, yeah. Yeah, but he shouldn't. And this idea that I think there's an idea in people's brains that an average person should be represented in the Senate. Not understanding that jobs have become much more complex now. Right. And people have become less educated now. So he's just not in a position to handle anything in the Senate deals with. Yeah, well, also he doesn't know it though. That's the part that upsets me.

"Care about you. Listen to story of the week with Joel Stein on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Okay, time for some of my personal thoughts on this. If there's one thing that the past few months has taught us, it's that energy security should be paramount. Europe is learning that the hard way and other countries should sit up and take note. When it comes to the United States, an underinvestment in oil exploration and transportation means that it could be held hostage by OPEC. Indeed, the intense lobbying actions of the Biden administration prior to the cut are proof that they desperately needed to avoid these cuts, especially with the midterms around the corner. Now that OPEC has snubbed the U.S. government, those SPR reserves are being tapped once again. However, it's only a finite supply, and it's at risk of eventually running dry. The nation's energy security should not be compromised by using an emergency tool to lower gas prices, especially if the ends are potential votes in an election. Not only that, but the price suppression caused by Tapping the SPR could lead to further underinvestment at a time when that is sorely needed. The world has become an increasingly dangerous place and America's enemies have been working to secure their own oil supplies. They have no issue buying Russian oil and stockpiling it in their own reserves. In a time of war, any oil will be a scarce commodity, and whether that came from a sanctioned country or not won't be of concern. So then, what do we do? Well, it's a tricky one. OPEC still wields an outsized control on the global oil markets and investment into sourcing new supply takes time. However, there is no time like the present. Perhaps they should once again consider the potential merits of the Keystone pipeline. Is shelving that project really in America's best interest at a time like this? I also think that politicians should allow the dynamics of supply and demand to address supply shortages. Price increases are unpalatable. Yes, but they are a necessary evil to source new supply. In the longer term, we could have a situation whereby more sustainable prices are possible without having to rely on the goodwill of OPEC. Those are just my opinions, though, you may think otherwise.

Because I Joel Stein, of story of the week with Joel Stein, care about you. Listen to story of the week with Joel Stein on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Back in March, U.S. president Joe Biden signed an executive order about cryptocurrency, which instructed all relevant government agencies to produce reports about crypto and how to regulate it. The deadline for these reports was earlier this month and last week The White House put together a summary of these reports, as well as their regulatory recommendations. Today, I'm going to explain what The White House's crypto framework says in simple terms and tell you exactly what it could mean for the crypto market. The document I'll be discussing today is titled, quote, fact sheet. White House releases first ever comprehensive framework for responsible development of digital assets. It was published on the 16th of September and I'll leave a link to the full text in the description if you're interested. Now The White House's crypto framework begins with a juicy statistic, and that's that around 16% of Americans hold crypto as part of their personal portfolios. This is a few percentage points shy of the 21% of Americans who have ever held crypto, according to research by NBC News, respect to the HODLers. The authors go on to explain that crypto has the potential to quote reinforce U.S. leadership in the global financial system. However, they caution that these potential benefits come with risks and cite terrors collapse in May as an example, without naming any names. What's odd is the authors claim that terrace collapse caused $600 billion of damage to the crypto market in the months that followed. This is highly debatable, as there were other macro factors that caused the crypto market to go lower, namely, the stock market, which was also crashing around that time. In any case, the authors touch on Biden's executive order about cryptocurrency from back in March and explained that all the relevant agencies have spent 6 months putting together their respective reports. The result is a series of policy recommendations related to 6 areas of focus in the executive order. These are, quote, consumer and investor protection, promoting financial stability, countering illicit finance, U.S. leadership in the global financial system, financial inclusion and responsible innovation. The authors reveal that a total of 9 reports were provided to The White House by U.S. agencies. We summarized one of them last weekend and you can find out what crazy things that report said using the link in the description. Now, the authors also reveal that these 9 reports quote reflect the input and expertise of diverse stakeholders across government industry academia and civil society. Obviously, there are a lot of loaded terms here, and it's certainly begs the question of exactly which personnel they consulted. What's particularly questionable is that these reports focus on, quote, helping cutting edge U.S. firms find footholds in global markets. Now, I'm not sure who needs to hear this, but crypto isn't about private companies establishing global dominance. It's about competition between decentralized developers. Naturally, the authors also single out crypto mining as an area of concern and call for quote common sense efficiency standards. I reckon what counts as common sense depends on who you ask and, as the saying goes, common sense is not that common. If that wasn't spooky enough, the authors say the reports call on the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department to accelerate the development of a Central Bank digital currency or CBDC. They even call for the creation of a quote interagency working group to develop a digital dollar. This is more significant than you think, because it suggests that the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department could eventually become one and the same. In fact, some would say this is inevitable given the trend towards hyper centralization in the financial system. Spooky stuff indeed. Now, the rest of the crypto framework gives a summary of the policy recommendations for the 6 areas of focus I mentioned earlier. You'll recall, I hope that one of these is quote consumer and investor protection, which has been used to justify all kinds of things in recent years. In this case, the authors go straight for the jugular digital assets pose meaningful risks for consumers, investors, and businesses. Not surprisingly, there is absolutely no mention of the rewards that come with greater risks nor the benefits of cryptocurrency. Instead, the authors focus on the negatives, including crypto's volatility and the lack of transparency around cryptocurrency. Interestingly, they cite a study by The Wall Street Journal from 2018, which found that a quarter of cryptocurrency ICOs had transparency issues. That's actually not as bad as I thought. In all seriousness, the authors take it one step too far when they claim

"Do you believe the violence on January 6th was justified morally? Do you believe the violence on January 6th was just legally? Jennifer, do you believe in the peaceful transition of power in the United States of America? Oh my God. Wow. A former United States general saying. I take the 5th on whether I believe in a peaceful transfer of power in the United States of America. Let's go. They got to call him back up immediately. Court martial him. He has belonged in jail for being a traitor for 16 other things before this. Yep. This is what happens right from this one is Malcolm he said, when you let them get away with this, this insurgency continues, right? Okay. I do have a question, Stephanie. Yes, Carlos. Insurgents of Russian money have anything to do with citizens united, and I'm generally asking that. That made it easier for the oligarchs to just pump in money. Yeah. It's all connected. Yes. Thank you, George Bush. Thank you, third party voters. Thank you Ralph Nader people in Florida and Minnesota. Thank you. Yes, yes. Thanks for voting out of spite instead of using drug baptism like Noam Chomsky, your hero says. I know, Carl, don't get me started again I can't someone posted the. For people who grasp of the amount of Jill Stein voters in the three swing states where Paul Manafort shared polling data with Russia, I mean, again, there was just no disputing it. Donald Trump won by 10,000 votes in Michigan, 50,000 people voted for Joel Stein. Similar stuff anywhere from 30 to 50,000 votes in Wisconsin and in what's the other Michigan. The margin of Jill Stein voters alone, which was what they, why do you think she was sitting at the table with Putin and my whole Flynn? That was exactly the plan to get enough Bernie voters to vote for her or stay home. And it worked like a charm. And so also the people way more than the victory. Also, people arguing that Dems could have codified roe versus what it means that you don't care about voter suppression or about religion, creeping into the constitution. It also means that you think you're absolved of your bad decision just because you think somebody else might have made a bad decision. It is such a second grade thing. You have to find in the Democrats. That has nothing to do with your bad decision to vote third party after a primary. Yeah, Democrats are not the right target. Not the right target right now. Okay, big man says we are in the fall of democracy. Literally, when he says this is my final morning, I've been warning for how long about this. This is it. I mean, this is it. This midterm. Single issue voter, democracy. That's it. You will be shocked to know that Melania might

Donald Trump, Union And Senate discussed on Richard Eeds

"In places that have high numbers of federal employees that are some of those businesses are going to go under and some of those contractors not only are getting paid. Now, they might never get back pay because their private company isn't going to give them back pay for work that was never done usually the federal government. In fact, I think every time there's been a shutdown. The federal government has always done back pay. But that doesn't get you through this month. Right. Some of these people may lose their security clearance because of the financial hardship. If you get behind. Lot of security clearances, you know, take they take finances into account, and they're beat maybe people losing security clearance and can't go back to their job. And there will be some people who lose their health care right now. Because if you don't have your healthcare payments going in this part of your paycheck for more than a month. There are some health insurance companies that will cut you off and all because of what in your eyes. Well, so let's put this exactly where it blames the blame belongs, and that's on the White House it, it's absolutely insane. You can have a genuine policy disagreement about the wall or border security or drones or these in Forsman. There are a lot of things that get baited every day in Washington DC. What makes this the fault of the president is that he agreed to keep the government open. There was a one hundred nothing vote in the Senate. I guarantee you there's not one hundred nothing vote in the Senate without Donald Trump saying, yes, I'm signing this, and then frankly, Ann Coulter. Taunted him on TV, and that was enough for him to change his mind. One of the many flaws of this president is in this this affects you whether you're a Republican up on the hill or democrat or no matter how far right or left. You are. He's not trustworthy. He enters into deals. He did it with DACA before for the dreamers. He did it in this case he came to an agreement about keeping the government open through February and the Senate approved at one hundred to nothing and he backed out of it. And to the substance of the wall issue, and I again, there certainly are a number of viewpoints that have a lot of validity. Nobody's absolutely wrong or right about any of this. It's a complicated issue. But he had two years of Republican control of both chambers where he could have made this a priority to fund this and Republicans didn't want his vision of it. Now, we all want border security, but the idea that you're to put up a big slab of concrete or big slab steel for twenty one hundred miles is first of all it's not the most effective way to spend money on border security at all. And Secondly, there all kinds of other problems with land use and ranchers, including a lot of hardcore conservatives along the Rio Grande valley, real fond of imminent domain. No. They don't want the government to take over their land and take away what would end up being thousands of square miles of of land. So there are a lot of problems with this. He had control of both chambers. And it only became. National emergency wants Nancy Pelosi became speaker. So this is his being petulant Patty trying to rile up the base getting ready for twenty twenty where he can make it you know, sort of a race war election because he thinks that's how he can win. What are the odds are that, you know, he was he was pushing Pelosi up against the wall. And now today he had no no choice. Really? But to say, you're disinvited for the state of the union in the house. Now, the White House is saying, well, we're gonna we're gonna deliver. We're looking for other venues, what are the odds he uses his hotel in Washington DC? That's a great call. I hadn't even thought of that. I was thinking red square in Moscow would be a good place. We can talk about some of that stuff too. But he. The Trump you don't want. Yeah. You don't want the location of the state of the union to overwhelm the real news. Which is that there's almost a million workers who are really going to go without soon without homes and food. If this doesn't get resolved soon, and that we've got fifteen hundred kids separated from their parents in American jails it private jails, by the way, all along the border. It is just outlandish that we have these kids suffering. Their parents were just trying to make a better life for them. We can't let the site of the state of the union overshadow those. Although I mean, look, it's it's entertaining. It's it's a little tit for tat. And of course, Trump never can be proportional. His punishment to speaker Pelosi was to endanger her life and the life not only of her, but of the other members of the delegation who are going to go and of our servicemen and women and of the military or the by revealing details at travel exactly and and so even in a little sort of petty spat about where the state of the Union's can take place, and whether it's appropriate to do it while the government is shutdown Donald Trump decides that he's gonna take it to another level and put people's lives in danger. And this guy is a disaster. He is by far the worst president we've ever had bar none. And we really have to get our act together. And make sure that we stand behind one candidate. No matter who it is. If it's Bernie, Joel Stein herself could get the nomination of the Democratic Party next time around. I'd be our biggest supporter we have. We have to stand behind one candidate. And I think we're having a lot of good ones to choose from. And get rid of this guy next dot in November of two thousand twenty asked me international political action Representative in New Mexico Carter Bundy along with gust Bundy, they're both in studio will come back, and we'll talk about some state issues
