Media Matters Tries to Destroy Elon Musk's X
"Linda Yaccarino said, if you know me, you know I'm committed to truth and fairness. Here's the truth. Not a single authentic user on X saw IBM, Comcast or Oracle ads next to content in the Media Matters article. Only two users saw an Apple ad next to the content, at least one of which was Media Matters. Data wins over manipulation or allegations don't mean manipulated stand with X. Yeah, this is a multidimensional hit job. And they're trying to go after Elon personally and criminally. They're trying to go after his liberation of the platform, all because Elon has now become a serious threat to the regime, to the unit party and the left by allowing us to speak, by allowing us to challenge preexisting orthodoxies, allowing us to incubate elite opinion in a way that the bad guys don't like. And so, you know, Michael, talk a little bit more about Media Matters. I don't know if they've targeted you. You know, they come after us quite a lot. Who funds these guys? It's it's it's a great question. You know, we see Rumble, we see X, you know, they're they're suing intensely. What else do we know about it? Well, we know that their executives make a whole lot of money in order to stifle your freedom of speech. In fact, the CEO, a woman named Angelo Caruso, Caruso makes four hundred fifty three thousand dollars a year. The person who's been in the news all week is actually David Brock. And he's arguably the most ideologically weaponized. He's the chairman of Media Matters, making two hundred ninety two thousand dollars a year in order to stifle your speech. But what's interesting is that you highlighted earlier Media Matters doesn't just not like Elon. They don't like you having the right to speak freely. Their donors and funders rely on them keeping the truth hidden and behind the curtain. The reality is X has been a platform that has provided for millions of Americans to learn the truth of what's happening in society in a way that never would have happened had X been under its formal leadership under Twitter. So we never would have learned about all that happened with the laptop and Hunter Biden. We never would have learned about the malfeasance in Ukraine. We never would have learned even recently about the January six tapes because so much of the effort for releasing the tapes, which I'm glad Speaker Johnson did, happened on X. So Media Matters can't lose their grip on power. Their grip on power relies on you not knowing the truth. And so we're seeing, as you described, this very coordinated hit job from people who are paid very, very highly in order to stifle your freedom of speech. One other thing that I will note is that some of the executives that Media Matters has tried to pull to drop their ads are people like NBC. NBC is a really interesting case because just last week NBC had a journalist of theirs that was defending somebody, an editor in chief of a progressive news site that ended up being outed as a pedophile, is now being charged with child pornography counts in one of the most egregious cases that law enforcement has ever seen in that area. So we're seeing that this virtue signaling is really just meant to target you. They don't want you to speak freely. And even these advertisers are backing people that are corrupt and dysfunctional. And yet Media Matters is silent on it. So Media Matters hasn't called out NBC about that, but they'll gladly call out NBC on a fake story that is not rooted in real data. And I'm glad that X ultimately is calling it

A highlight from Ep410: Why Your Podcast Needs Taglines and Subtitles
"If you totally messed up on your regular title, use the tagline and subtitle. And you might be asking yourself, well, is it hard to change the title of my podcast? No, it's not. Once you have been approved, you usually can just go in there, change the title, and it will update in real time. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, podcaster. It's your host, Adam Adams. And on this episode, we are talking about a couple of things. One is a tagline. One's a subtitle. And technically, they are different things. They are going to be used for the same purpose as we talk about it in this episode. And ultimately, what that means is you're going to have a title to your podcast, your whole entire podcast. This one's called The Podcast on Podcasting. And that's going to be your title. And then you're going to have a subtitle right after it or a tagline right after it. Now, it's up to you whether you use a subtitle or tagline. The goal of it is going to be the same either way. It's going to have two pieces. So write it down. Two main pieces that are most important for you to incorporate through the tagline and the subtitle. What's the issue? The issue comes when your podcast title became too creative, too clever, and not concise. So when we say when it's clear and concise, those two C words, it's good. When it's clever and it's… I don't remember the other one. But when it's clever or just a fun, exciting, or something that you just came up with and you think it's going to be great. The problem is if it's not clear, it's not concise, then you don't know if you're a perfect listener. We'll call him or her the avatar. You don't know if your perfect listener is going to find you because you came up with a catchy or creative title like the Ooga Boogas. You came up with a clever or catchy title like I can't even think on the spot anymore. But you get it. Like when you put your heart and soul and you just come up with a title and you're just like, oh, that's cool. It incorporates part of my name. But nobody knows what the hell I'm talking about. You know who you are. You created a clever or catchy title. But there's no SEO. There's no searchability. There's no talking to the avatar. You messed up. You messed up. You weren't clear with your avatar. You weren't concise with your avatar. And the avatar has no idea what you're thinking right now because you went so clever when you created a title. So you already made that mistake. Great. No problem. That means it's time to add a subtitle or a tagline. And where are you going to put the subtitle or tagline? Two places. The first of those two places that I want you to add the subtitle or tagline is just right there on your artwork. So right now, your artwork is two catchy words, three catchy words, four catchy words. But it means literally nothing to the person you're trying to attract. Your perfect listener, the avatar, the person you want to work with. It doesn't have anything to do with them. They couldn't find you. They don't know the name of your podcast. They don't know your first and last name already because they don't go and search for. Hmm. I wonder if there's somebody named Amy Johnson and I could type in Amy Johnson and then I could listen to her stuff and it might be good and it might be bad, but I'm just going to randomly type in some random name. Amy Johnson. It's not going to work for you. Don't be clever. Don't use your business name. Don't use random colors. I was guilty of this. I had a company called Blue Spruce and I'm like, well, Blue Spruce, because it means the Blue Spruce is an actual tree, but it only grows in like Colorado and Utah. And so people are going to know that we come from here. And it's interesting because a Blue Spruce stands out from the other trees. And so you see like regular spruce trees, you see bird trees, you see pine trees, you see deciduous trees, and you got this gorgeous Blue Spruce and that's going to be the name. I named him a company, Blue Spruce, and that was catchy. That was clever. That was something that I knew what it meant, but my perfect avatar, if we go back in history, that was my company, was a real estate investing show. Nobody is looking to place capital and specifically searching for Blue Spruce at all. And so we had this company called Blue Spruce Holdings and people can't just randomly find us. When I came up with the title of this podcast, The Podcast on Podcasting, I wanted it to be clear and concise. I wanted my perfect avatar to be able to search it. I didn't call it Blue Spruce. I didn't call it Adam Adams. I didn't call it any random thing that somebody who didn't already know me could find. I called it something that someone didn't know me can find. I hope I said that right. I hope I didn't just say it backwards, but you get what I'm saying. So if you got clever, if you got creative with your title, if you named yourself some color or just your name, or you put in your business name for your podcast, I'm not going to say you're dumb, but you made a bad mistake. And how do you fix it? You got to do a subtitle or tagline. Again, there's two places that you're going to put this. It's going to be right there on the artwork. I talked to you about how you might have two, three, four words of the title there. Now that you have that, great. And you're going to add a subtitle. So you think about what is your avatar searching for S E O search engine optimization. So you're thinking about your perfect person. Let's call her Emily. So Emily is let's say 23 years old, say she's going through this. She's having a trouble with this. What she wants to overcome is that this is what keeps her up at night. Her ultimate goal is to be able to become this thing in this amount of time. She's a mom or she's not a mom. She's one or the other. That's your perfect avatar. It's Emily. And now you're thinking, well, okay, I messed up. I made a clever, creative title and I need something more concise and clear that she's going to search for S E O search engine optimization. So if she types in, how do I start a podcast? Or if she types in, how do I start a online business? You're going to put that thing in your subtitle. You're going to say how to start an online business for single moms. You'll put in how to launch your very first podcast with three easy steps. Whatever it is, you put in a concise, clear subtitle. It'll go on the artwork and where's the other place that it's going to be. It's going to be actually part of the title. Now this gets confusing because you're like, well, so I'm just going to have a really long title. Yes, because you already messed up. And so now you need to add to it so people can find you. And so you put it in anything that you think Emily's going to search for. And so S E O driven and anything that's going to call out your avatar. When she sees it, she's going to say, man, this is for me. So it's like for struggling single moms. And now that is a thing that's going to call her out. She's going to say, man, that's me. I guess I got to listen to this podcast. So find a way if you have not yet created your actual title, you're in a great position because you can create a title to your podcast that is clear and concise, that she's going to look for you and search for you and find you. And you can make the subtitle, the thing that tracks her to saying, Oh my gosh, like this person knows me. They know what I'm going through. And this just seems like it's speaking to me. That's what you want her to do. That's what you want him to do. So again, on this episode, we are talking about taglines and subtitles. We talked about if you totally messed up on your regular title, use the tagline and subtitle. We talked about it being into two different places that is on the artwork of the podcast and actually part of the title. And you might be asking yourself, well, is it hard to change the title of my podcast? No, it's not. Once you have been approved, you usually can just go in there, change the title, and it will update in real time. It'll update so that within a couple of hours, your whole list sees now your title with a subtitle, and now you're more SEO driven and you're more likely to call out that avatar, Emily, to say, man, this woman, she knows what I'm going through. I need to listen to this episode because it just seems to speak to me. I'll see you on the next episode. This is serious. Don't go. Now that you've gotten whatever value that you feel that you got the actionable takeaways, you need to implement the stuff that you learn. If you remember me talking about Bird Church once and they learn how to fly and then they walk home, I don't want you to walk home. I want you to fly home. So take the steps, take the actionable steps for your benefits that you can become a better podcaster. That's the only thing that I ask of you. And I'll see you for more actionable tips on the very next episode.

First of all, sustainability is a top business priority. A third of them have made great progress against their commitments to reduce climate change. But they all are saying, look, we don't necessarily have the upfront capital and we need partners to help us accelerate our progress. the I guess bright side of the downside that buildings are 40 % of global greenhouse gas emissions is that when we make those buildings more efficient, those interventions cash flow to the extent that companies like Johnson Controls now offer net zero as a service.

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.

A highlight from ETF Excitement Drives Bitcoin Past $36,000
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, November 9th, and today we are talking about Bitcoin's breakout and all of the bullish sentiment shift. But, before we get into that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends. Well, yesterday, as you know, we pivoted to bullishness, put the SPF trial behind us, and faced firmly forward, and boy, has today extended the excitement. So much so that I'm actually not even really covering the biggest bull thing from today, which is BlackRock registering an Ethereum spot ETF that happened just as I was finishing, so I am sure that that will be front and center tomorrow. For now, let's kick off today with a tweet from Steven Lubka, who's the Managing Director and Head of Private Clients and Family Offices at Swan. He tweets, I love how Bitcoin itself determines how busy my day is going to be. Today is going to be crazy. Thanks for almost cracking $37k overnight. So let's start this report with the ETF speculation. Grayscale has opened talks with the SEC in an attempt to finally move forward with the conversion of the Grayscale Bitcoin trust into an ETF. Grayscale sources said the company is now in active discussions with the SEC's division of trading and markets and the division of corporate finance. Both divisions play a key role in deciding ETF applications. Now, Grayscale, of course, won its lawsuit against the SEC in August, with the court ruling that the SEC must reconsider the firm's application to convert GBTC. If the SEC wanted to deny the application, it would need to come up with some new reasons after their existing rationale was found to be arbitrary and capricious. Craig Salm, Grayscale's chief legal officer, said, Right now, we're just laser focused on constructively re -engaging with trading and markets. There are still things that have to be worked through. He added that, Overall, it's been good engagement and it's a matter of when, not a matter of if anymore. Grayscale CEO Michael Sonenshine also confirmed that discussions with the SEC have commenced. He told Bloomberg that his team have been busy filing the required documents, which quote, When pressed for a timeline for approval, Sonenshine chuckled, noting that, Timelines are certainly not something that has been discussed, but what I can tell you is that the SEC is constructively engaging at the moment. We remain optimistic that we will get through any final hurdles that need to be there and our investors will finally get what they've been waiting for. Now, the market, for its part, clearly thinks the conversion is likely to be approved. The GBTC discount has now closed to 12 % from over 40 % back in June. It's the smallest discount since November of 2021. Now, widening to the rest of the pool of potential ETFs, Bloomberg analysts reported that the SEC has a brief eight -day window to approve all 12 spot Bitcoin ETFs at the same time, which begins today. ETFs are generally not approved while they are still open for public comment following an SEC decision. That comment period concluded today for seven of the ETFs, which were delayed as a group in late September. James Safart, one of the Bloomberg ETF analysts, followed up in a Twitter thread explaining that, If the agency wants to allow all 12 fliers to launch, as we believe, this is the first available window since Grayscale's court victory was affirmed. Now on November 17th, comment periods will reopen for three of the applications from GlobalX, Hashdex, and Franklin Templeton when they hit their next SEC deadline for approval or delay. That would leave the SEC able to approve only nine of the 12 applications until January. Safart, with some assistance from finance lawyer Scott Johnson, added some extra detail to the situation. They explained that there are two approvals required before the ETFs can begin trading. The SEC would need to approve the proposed rule changes, and then a separate division of the regulator would need to sign off on product disclosure forms known as an S -1. Johnson tweeted, If there's a hypothetical approval this week, there's probably minimum a month and probably a couple before any ETF actually launches. S -1's still under review and no real hard deadline for that process. Though I consider it more a formality at that stage. Would be a wild period. Safart agreed, stating that possible and even likely that there could be weeks or even months between approval and launch. This is in line with comments made by Valkyrie CIO Stephen McClurg last week, who said, A late November approval likely means a February launch. Now his view was that the SEC would likely wait until the new year to ask firms to put finishing touches on their S -1 filings before they were given the green light. Adding a little more intrigue to the process, SEC chair Gary Gensler released another one of his little videos. This one was an explanation of the Division of Corporation Finance, the group which has recently been giving feedback on ETF applicants on their S -1s. Gensler emphasized that the SEC is a quote merit neutral regulator. He explained that the basic bargain of US capital markets is that quote, investors get to decide what risk they take so long as public companies make complete and truthful disclosure. Now of course, the timing of this could be nothing, but some viewed it as a meaningful indication of what has been going on behind closed doors at the SEC. Senior Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balcones tweeted, Could be a coincidence, but probably not. They did preapproval educational stuff ahead of BITO approval as well. Also, I feel like this is his way of saying, look, we aren't endorsing these ETFs, we're just trying to disclose all the possible risks so you can decide. Hands washed. Investor Adam Cochrane reiterated the point, tweeting, Usually this kind of stuff is posted by the SEC as like a disclaimer before they approve things they don't like. For example, last time was four days before they approved the BITO futures ETF. We guess this puts Bitcoin ETF approvals at less than one week now. As one final little indication that things could be moving behind the scenes at the SEC, commissioners and staff attended a closed door meeting this afternoon. The agenda included quote, institution and settlement of administrative proceedings and resolution of litigation claims. These kinds of meetings are held as needed and we don't have any further detail to confirm the commissioners are voting on ETF approvals, but holding a meeting is a much stronger indicator than not holding a meeting. To sum up, analysts' current expectations is that the entire cohort of ETFs are likely to be approved at the same time so as not to pick winners and that this could all happen as soon as this week. After that approval, disclosure statements will need to be finalized before the ETFs can be launched, which seems likely to take weeks, if not months. Notably, Bloomberg analysts have not adjusted their odds for full approvals in January up from 90%. They're also leaving their odds at an approval for this year at 70%. There's currently no real expectation that ETFs will begin trading until early next year. All commentary has carried a very prominent disclaimer that approvals are far from guaranteed, but between all of these little indications, market sentiment is clearly pointing towards a Bitcoin ETF approval. Crypto trader AvocadoToast tweeted, ETF thesis is pretty simple, 90 % odds of approval by Jan 10th could happen any day really. Announcement, immediate FOMO to speculate, scramble to search for ETF tokens on DexTools screener and Twitter, find top choice ETF because first mover most liquid highest market cap most trustworthy one, mash buy button candle loads. We all know this is going to happen. Let's just skip the song and dance. Blockworks Jason Yanowitz said, this market still severely underestimates how insane it will be to have Bitcoin ETF approvals and Bitcoin having within 60 days of each other will be obvious in hindsight. Now all of this ETF speculation has of course been extremely positive for Bitcoin price action. The market tested the $36 ,000 level for the third time late on Wednesday evening and effortlessly broke through. Bitcoin settled at a new level of around $36 ,700 overnight. Now Matrixport said earlier on Wednesday that they expected the breakout above $36 ,000 to be imminent. Following on from that correct prediction, the firm said that they believed a sustained rally to follow. Their report stated, the Santa Claus rally could start at any moment with a steady increase in buyers during US trading hours and an ongoing attempt for Bitcoin to break out. We could see prices rallying into the end of the month and year. Matrixport included some macro commentary recognizing that this Bitcoin run has been supported by dovish federal reserve messaging, reducing long -term debt issuance from the treasury and a continued slowdown in inflation. They noted that above $36 ,000 there's a lot of fresh air considering how rapidly prices collapsed in early 2022. The report stated that quote, a break above $36 ,000 could propel Bitcoin toward our next technical resistance level at $40 ,000 potentially reaching $45 ,000 by the end of 2023. Now along these same lines, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or CME, which hosts the highest volume market for Bitcoin futures in the US has continued to see a rush of trading. Open interest for Bitcoin futures has increased by 35 % over the past four weeks, moving above 100 ,000 Bitcoin for the first time. Indeed, the CME is snapping at the heels of Binance as the dominant market for Bitcoin futures trading. Binance currently has a little over 24 % of the market while the CME is closing in with 22 .7%. Now, according to K33 research, the two week price consolidation around 35 ,000 has primed bullish sentiment. Over the last two weeks, dips have been bought and Bitcoin has remained in a $2 ,000 range. That range, of course, is now broken to the upside, but the analysis still seems relevant. K33 observed that with Bitcoin range bound, altcoins have had a chance to run. We've seen numerous tokens achieve gains above 10 % in the past two weeks, which has brought the total crypto market cap back up to $1 .4 trillion for the first time since the Luna collapse. Bitcoin dominance softened slightly as a result of this altcoin run, but remained above 50%. Now, maybe most interestingly, volumes during US trading hours are dominating the market, vastly outstripping other regions. Premiums on front month options have exploded with calls settled at the end of November showing a 16 % annualized premium. ETF inflows continue to be strong, with the pro shares Bitcoin futures ETF BITO just receiving its third highest weekly inflow since November 2021. Now, despite the rush of activity in derivatives markets, Bitcoin's implied volatility remains below its three year average. This indicates that markets are priced for slow, grinding price action rather than sudden spikes.
A highlight from Gary Gensler Wants To Relaunch FTX | SEC vs Crypto
"All right, so a lot happening this week, and today is no different. Gary Gensler is on the Warpath, we're going to be talking about that, and also breaking into what's happening with Bitcoin and some of the markets. We'll get into all that good stuff for you guys today. My name is Paul Bearer. Welcome back to Tech Path. Before we get started, I want to take a moment and thank our sponsor. On November 14th and 15th, Human Protocol is hosting Nukeonomics 2023 in Lisbon to discuss the impact of AI and Web3 on the world and the economy of tomorrow. Make sure and use our promo code PB50 for 50 % off. Nukeonomics is planned to set to explore the future of Web3 with thought leaders around the world. Cool thing, across the program, they're going to be doing a full kickoff. On starting the event, you'll be able to get access to new speakers. They're going to discuss the impact of blockchain and creating human -centric economies and the future of crypto. They'll also have this thing called the L -Room, which is going to be a startup pitch, so make sure and check that out. And then the following day, you'll be able to go to what they call the LX Mainstage, and all of that is going to be where we'll see Web3 in music, along with AI and other influences in digital media. Some of the guest speakers include Sam Weeks from Google, Erica Wykes -Snade from Adidas, Cyrus Faisal from Swisborg, and Javier Garcia de la Torre from Binance. Make sure and check them all out. Don't forget to use our code down below. We'll leave a link. All right, so let's break into it today. Let's go over to the first tweet. This is the Kobayisi letter just in. Market cap of Bitcoin officially rises above $750 billion for the first time since April 2022. I want to zoom in on that for you guys a little bit. The entire crypto space is nearing $1 .5 trillion market cap. That's nice to see, $1 .5 trillion. First time nearly two years that we've seen this. Bitcoin prices are now 35 % over the last month, 120 % on the year. I want you to take a moment for all you guys out there that are buying in Bitcoin, have been buying maybe since the beginning of the year. You're 120 % up. How do you say that to people when you look at that? I'm just kind of curious. How do you play it? And also, what tokens are you playing right now? Make sure and leave some comments down below. Smash the like button if you guys like breakdowns like this. Let us know. These are the kind of things. So we'll kind of guide you along here. But the resilience of crypto is incredible. The statement here, can't really deny what's happening out there. You guys are in the right place at the right time. The cool thing is, is when you like this video, it's going to share it to others who will start to learn what's happening out there in crypto as a whole. A couple of posts here. I want to go to Scott Johnson. And it looks like we've got some confirmation. One with a hard timeline, so almost certainly decided along with other open apps, the most likely outcome, US SEC said open talks with Grayscale on the spot Bitcoin ETF push is underway. So this came in further on him and he said, my guess is Grayscale is one of the two positions they received assurances that they will receive a new order, X number of days alongside the open apps. And then they have not received assurances, maybe demanding a new order. Kind of curious which one you think would be the case. Will Grayscale be aligned with the rest because with this alignment of discussions happening, you get back into the scenario of, yes, ETF is going to start positioning and maybe that's the opportunity. Now, the real question is how does Bitcoin respond once an ETF does come through? Pentoshi kind of hits on a couple of points here. A lot of people argue that Bitcoin ETF is going to be sell the news. Yes, some pricing is going on, but we have no idea what the demand will be and there will be some to start. Sure, illiquid supply is at an all -time high. That's one thing. A lot of Bitcoin is now in diamond handlers. Yes, we know that. And then don't pretend you know what's going to happen. I agree. I don't think anybody really knows for sure. You can assume, I think with some reason, that there's going to be some demand movement. But the biggest point, I think, is a little bit of a ephemeral approach to it. And what I mean by that is that when BlackRock comes into the space, if BlackRock is the one that, say, leads the way out, maybe there will be another winner here. Could be ARK, could be Fidelity. Whoever wins that marketing war, I think that's the point in which traditional investors will start to question their resolve around crypto. And when that happens, there will be a tipping point and I think that's the point in which a lot of this is going to start to peak. Now, maybe the timing is going to be perfect too because you've got, obviously, next year we've got the halving occurring. Hopefully we're out of what could be a recession. Hopefully we're out of these conflicts and other things are starting to settle. We'll talk about that in a second. Here's Will Quamente. He kind of jumps in on this. It's pretty obvious that if BlackRock is filing an ETH ETF, then the Bitcoin ETF must be a dumb deal. I don't know if it's a done deal, but this is interesting that they bring this up front. Now, granted, they may have enough indicators there that this is going to happen and they don't want to be left behind in the sense of a strategy around an ETH ETF. I just had James Saferd on. He and I had kind of been going back and forth. First time I had James on, he mentioned to us and we asked him straight blank, what about an ETH ETF? He wasn't really a fan of that, but he's changed his position. So I think that he, along with other Wall Streeters out there, are in a position now that ETH is going to make it through as an ETF. Here's John Deaton. Although I believe a spot ETF, Bitcoin ETF, should have been approved a long time ago, I believe the timing of a spot ETF approval is going to help create a perfect storm for Bitcoin. Whether you look at, you know, Wall Street getting what they want or you know what's happening overall, what he talks about here is we all know no matter what happens in the not too distant future, second and third quarter, rate cuts going to happen combined with rate cuts. This is my point is that you're going to get into some scenarios for 2024 where the cycle starts to feed upon itself. Rate cuts, the market looking at a much more structured capital alignment with an asset class that has now maybe come of age, along with all the technical components of what's happening with Bitcoin, and then what I think will be an absolute barnstorm of what's going to happen in Web3. That's going to include all the traditional tokens that we talk about here all the time, including, you know, ETH, AVAC, SOL, and many others in the Web3 ecosystem. So a lot definitely kind of lining up here for good news. SEC Chair Gensler says rebooted FTX is maybe a possibility if it's done within the law. All right. So this I would tread on very, very lightly in the sense that I think the brand damage has been done. I just cannot imagine, it would take maybe years to get way past where we are today. Any of the people that know about crypto today are going to most likely be feeding into the crypto investors of the future, and what I mean by the future, the next two to three years. FTX is still going to be a memory that's not one that's easy forgotten. And I think because of that, just the brand ethos that FTX pretty much imposed itself on the industry, I don't think is going to be forgotten. So I think it's going to be a scenario. They will not be overcoming it. And the thing that, you know, Gensler might be trying to do here is maybe just set it up for failure so he can do what I told you at some moment. I don't know. But I would not. Why? Go that route. Why would you bring that sore back up into the industry when there's so many great projects out there and great exchanges and places where you can do things, including all these new entities? I just don't know. I'm not sure. Let's listen to a clip right here. This is Brad Garment House. He's talking about FTX. Listen in. I've spoken with a lot of Democratic lawmakers, crypto skeptics about this, and they cite fraud often, that a lot of people are defrauded through crypto scams. How much more work needs to be done to push back against that kind of narrative? The fraud FTX wasn't a crypto fraud. I mean, yes, it was a fraud. Maybe if Gary Gensler and the SEC weren't so focused on going after Ripple and meeting openly with Sam Bankman -Fried, maybe we could have actually avoided some of that, right? Marty bracing myself for when I go check Twitter after this to see everything the XRP army had to say about this conversation. All right. So you can kind of see maybe with Brad Garment House, obviously I'm trying to take this to the Supreme Court, will maybe adjust his opinion of how they negotiate with the SEC. And maybe that's what he's talking about there. It would be interesting if that actually occurred. Maybe there is something that could be done and salvaged between that relationship. I don't know. I want to go over to another clip here. This gets into Garment House talking about Coinbase and what their current status is. Listen in. I followed the Coinbase case a little more closely. And so maybe I can comment there a little bit more. You know, the SEC is not trending well there. And again, if at some point you would think if you keep getting losses, you would say, okay, wait a minute, let's step back, let's reevaluate. Or even better, let's be part of championing a legislative solution. Well, you say you're hopeful that something happens legislatively, but ultimately the way things are going right now, do you think more clarity is likely to come from Congress or is it just going to continue to come from the courts and the judicial branch? I think that's a question for Chair Gensler.
A highlight from 15 Authors of Titles on THR's List of the 100 Greatest Film Books of All Time
"Please welcome to the stage President and CEO of the American Film Institute, Bob Guzzale. Phone rings. It's Scott Feinberg from The Hollywood Reporter. He has an idea. And he's thinking about celebrating the 100 greatest film books of all time. I am immediately offended because top 100 movie lists are the AFI's real estate. But I did not say that to him. And the truth is I was just jealous because it was such and is such a good idea. And I thought anything AFI can do to help shine a proper light on this imperative work, well, we're in. But I did say to Scott, it's got to be A plus. It's no fake in this one. You have to have the most informed, the smartest jury. And he said, I got this. And he did. And today is a moment to celebrate that effort and the inspired writers who have brought history to life. Here to take his bow and to moderate the discussion, the executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Feinberg. Now Scott is going to bring out the honorees today, but he has given me the gift of introducing you to the first. For he is the founder of the American Film Institute. He was there in the White House Rose Garden when President Lyndon Johnson first announced the creation of AFI. He was there to write the very words that define the Institute's national mandate. And he was there to lead the organization through its early years. And it was then that he planted the seeds for the AFI Center for Film Studies, now the AFI Conservatory. And it was then that he instituted the Harold Lloyd Master Seminar Series at AFI, so named because the seminar's first guest was Harold Lloyd. Across 50 years, these seminars have proved a rich historical record of the art form and have inspired several books on THR's 100 greatest list, including two of his. Conversations with the great movie makers of Hollywood's golden age and conversations at the American Film Institute with the great movie makers the next generation. Please welcome George Stevens Jr. Welcome George Stevens Jr. and we are excited to hear from you in just a second. Now joining you up here, please welcome the author of 2020's The Big Goodbye Chinatown and the Last Years of Hollywood and with Janine Basinger, 2022's Hollywood The Oral History, Sam Wasson.

Next up, we are going to have two authors coming to the stage because they are the co -authors of 1996's Hit and Run, How John Peters and Peter Goober Took Sony for a Ride in Hollywood. Please welcome Nancy Griffin and Kim Masters. Next up, he is, as you will guess from the title, his name. He is from 1969 and for many years thereafter the author of Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide. Please welcome Leonard Maltin. Here we are. Welcome. Next, we have the author of 1998's The Last Mogul, Lou Osterman, MCA and the Hidden History of Hollywood, Dennis McDougall. Next, we have the author of 1977's The Making of the Wizard of Oz, Movie Magic and Studio Power in the Prime of MGM and the Miracle of Production number 1060. Please welcome Algene Harmetz. Next, he is the Czar of Noire, the author of Dark City, The Lost World of Film Noire from 1998. Please welcome Eddie Muller. He is the author of the 1996 book Spike, Mike, Slackers and Dykes, a guided tour across a decade of independent American cinema, John Pearson. From 1988, the book The Player. Please welcome Michael Tolkien. From 1989, the author of Goldwyn, a Biography, A. Scott Berg. She is the author of the 2006 book A Killer Life, How an Independent Film Producer Survives Deals and Disasters in Hollywood and Beyond, Christine Vachon. We're going to give an extra warm welcome to this gentleman because it is his birthday. Please join us in welcoming George Harrell's Hollywood Glamour Portraits 1925 to 1992 author from 2013, Mark A. Vieira. From 1999, the book Conversations with Wilder, the author Cameron Crowe. Ladies and gentlemen, take it in because this has never been seen before and I don't know if anyone will be lucky enough to gather this amazing group again in one place. I'm so grateful to all of you for making the time to be here. Many of you came from great distances and congratulations on your work being on this list chosen by 322 people from the industry. We're talking about filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, executives, David Zaslav and many others, authors including just about everybody up here plus many others, academics. You can see the whole list online but the point is it is a cross -section of the business. There have been versions of this list that were chosen by film critics. There have been versions by other constituencies but this reflects the taste of our global film community. So thank you again for being here and I want to also just quickly thank Bob Guzzale, Julie Goodwin and everyone at AFI not only for going through all the efforts to make today possible but also for their other lists that Bob referenced because were it not for the original AFI Top 100 list. I don't think I would be here in a career as a film journalist because that really made me fall in love with the movies in the way that I hope this list inspires many other people to check out these books and the others on the list. So thank you to them and to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter for supporting the list and Terry Press for helping us put everything together and all of you for being here. So the way this is going to work is we are going to go down this line a few minutes with each author about the origin and impact and revelations of their book and then we are going to have a looser group conversation afterwards but we're going to begin with Mr. Stevens Jr. These two books that you wrote drawing from the seminars that Bob referenced are you know just fascinating looks at generations of filmmakers who have spoken to students at the AFI, what you know they've shared about their lives, their careers, tips for filmmaking. I wonder if you can just talk about how early on, well again just a little bit more actually about how those seminars started because you were there at the beginning and when it occurred to you that they might make good books.

We did Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, me, Chris Ryan, Van Lathan, it was a wonderful experience for all of us. Van looked at Chris at one point and he said, everything I do, I do it all for you. Oh no, that was Bryan Adams, but we had a great time. Coming up on this podcast, I'm gonna do an NBA Power Poll at the top because there's no games as I'm taping this on Tuesday. So let's, where are we after two weeks? I tried to fly through this. I limited myself to 22 minutes. I think I went two minutes over, but I flew through it, tried to get off as many comments as I possibly could. And then our old friend Malcolm Gladwell is gonna come on and do some sports hour stuff. There's some things that he's noticed about direction sports are going in that he doesn't like, and we're gonna try to fix it. So that's the podcast, first, our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, I'm gonna throw an NBA Power Poll at you. I'm not sure I'm gonna do this every Tuesday, but I definitely wanna do this some Tuesdays. I'm gonna go through all 30 teams as fast as possible. And I'm gonna throw things out that I feel like are important when necessary. Pot shots, important comments, things I've noticed, some fake trades, you've known me for a while. It's gonna be all the typical stuff. Going backwards from 30 to one, I'll give you the groups as we go. The first group is called the Dregs. That's Washington number 30. They are 30th in defense. And the only reason they're 30th in defense is because we only have 30 teams. I actually think there's some way they could have been 36th in defense. They're the only team in the entire league that I do not wanna watch on league pass for any reason at all. They're one and five, 15 .6 point differential against them. Shoot this team into the sun. I cannot believe House thought this team was gonna go over 24 wins. They might not go over 14 wins. They're awful. I never want them on my TV. Next group, probably the lottery. I say probably, but I'm gonna zip through these teams and then go back to somebody. 29 Utah, 28 Portland, 27 Detroit, 26 San Antonio, 25 Charlotte, who is way more fun than I expected they would be to watch, and 24 Chicago. It just feels like the lottery's in the future for all these teams. I wanna talk about San Antonio really quick. Three and four, kind of a sneaky, tough schedule. They played Phoenix twice, the Clippers, Dallas, that goofy Indiana team, Houston, and Toronto. They're minus 8 .6 point differential because they've gotten blown out a couple of times, and they're 29th on defense, which I was surprised by per 100 possessions. The thing that I wanted to point out here, because this one Benyama thing is super important. This is the best teenager that's come into the league, at least since LeBron. We can debate. LeBron, I think in year two, for two months at least, was a teenager when he was putting up 27, seven, and seven. When he started his 27, seven, seven cycle. Wembe might be the best teenager I've ever seen. They're starting Jeremy Sohan at point guard, and Pop's been transparent about this. No, no, we know we're gonna take some lumps. We're trying to figure this out. I went to the game when they played the Clippers, I talked about it in a previous pod, and it was just an absolute debacle, watching poor Sohan try to run the offense, bring the ball up. Now we're seeing teams starting to pressure them because he's not a point guard. He's a small forward. There's crazy stats now. Trey Jones, just by being on this team and not being Jeremy Sohan, is now one of the best advanced metrics point guards of all time. Right now, his per 100 on -off is plus 28 .3 because Sohan is minus 22 .7. That's how disparate the two things are. Which brings me to my point, this is too important. You have the best teenager maybe ever. You have one of the best league pass players already in the entire league in Wimby. I have no idea how long he's gonna stay healthy, knock on wood, hear me knock really loud. I just got my dog going. No, that was me, dumb ass. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is on Indiana, and they have Halliburton, who's averaging a 24 -12. He's awesome. They have Nembhard, who's great as a backup. McConnell's like, he's 13 minutes a game. He's clearly a trade piece for them. Just go get him. I'm not saying San Antonio has to make the playoffs, but they need to be entertaining, and Wimby needs to play with point guards. He clearly needs just to play off people, high screens, all that stuff. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is my choice. They have all their own firsts. They're not gonna trade those obviously, but they have some goofy picks. They have Charlotte's top 14 protected first. They have a pretty good Chicago first that I wouldn't give up. They have a first swap with Boston. There's ways to do this. I would just put that Charlotte pick next year on the table and just grab them because you guys hit the lottery. Literally, with Wimby -Dyama, literally hit the lottery. You hit the lottery and you hit the lottery. Get to do two point guards. We're not asking for much here. I wanna watch this guy. I wanna enjoy him play basketball. All right, next section is panic time. Number 23, Memphis. They're one and six. They finally got out to Schneider. And number 22, Sacramento, who lost twice to Houston in three days by 18 and 25. No Darren Fox for either game. Panic time in this respect. I know we're six games in the season, seven games in the season, but the West is one of those things where you're gonna look up and the car is left. The car has left the driveway and your family is gone. You're gonna be basically Kevin and home alone if you don't get your shit together. And I don't even wanna be two games under 500 in the West. That's how deep and good the West is. So when you're one and six, like all of a sudden two and 12, two and 13, Sacramento could all of a sudden be three and nine. I would just be nervous constantly. This is not like last year when the Lakers started out two and 10 and ended up making the playoffs. Nobody is doing that this year. The cutoff line is gonna be 46 wins. Memphis looks, they just can't score. And I think it's gonna be really, we talked about this verno last week. It's gonna be really hard for them to crawl back and be at least like 11 and 14, something like that by the time Ja comes back. The Sacramento thing, we predicted this when we did the over -under preview, like the conference is way better and they stayed basically the same. And now Fox is hurt. So it can take Fox going out for 10 games and all of a sudden you're not even in the playing game. I would just be nervous, so it's both of those teams. Again, it's early. Next group, friskier than we hoped. We have number 21, Brooklyn. Ben Simmons averaging almost 11 rebounds and seven assists a game. And yet you can't play him at crunch time, bizarre. Number 20, Orlando. Number 19, Houston. Number 18, Indiana. And number 17, Toronto. Just quickly on Houston, a delightful league pass team. I had no idea. It's like being at a buffet dinner and somebody brings like some, have you ever had a fried oyster? It's like, great, I'll try that. And then it's delicious. They play hard. I like watching them. And I did not expect a Shungun to be a potential all -star, but that's where we are. They're three and three. Again, they beat Sacramento twice, we'll see. But Orlando at number 20. Every time I do this, I'm gonna have a BS all -star of the week. I used to do this when I wrote my column back in the day. I used to call them the Bill Simmons all -stars, just people that I just liked for whatever reason. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't really know fully what he is. He tries harder than everybody on every other team. He really gives a shit. He feels additive in all these different ways. And yet at the same time, he'll absolutely like airball a three in one of the biggest moments of the game. But that guy cares. I watched a game where he got this hustle rebound. Can't remember who they, they lost at the buzzer. Get this hustle rebound and dribble back out and took a three and missed it and put his jersey over his head for like the next minute and a half. I actually think he might've been crying. He was so upset they lost. He is the most competitive random guy in the league. I love Jalen Suggs. Oh, as Saruti said, it's the Laker game. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't know what he is. He might just end up being like a seventh man on a championship team at some point. He's gonna have a moment on a good team. I don't know if Orlando's gonna be the team, but it's gonna happen for that dude. I also really like Anthony Black more than I thought, but we'll see. It's early for this team. Palo hasn't gotten going. Somehow they're four and three. We'll see when the schedule gets harder. Toronto at number 17, just the Lakers miss Schroeder. And I like what Schroeder's doing in Toronto. They're three and four, but they easily could be five and two. I've been watching them because I have their over under, I bet on. And I like where Toronto's at. I think they're better than they were last year. I think they're at least a playing team. Number 18, Indiana though. So their second in offensive rating and 25th in defense. In the 25th, I was actually surprised it wasn't worse. They can't guard anybody. They're shooting 43s a game. Their top six guys are all over 40 % three point shooting. They're kind of like the 80s Nuggets, but with threes. And they just play with a certain pace. And some days it's going to be bad. Like the Celtics put 155 points on them and it probably could have been 160 if they'd made some shots. Hal Burton's special. He's a 24 -12 this year. But the crazy thing about their offense is that Matherin's been terrible. And Matherin was a guy that they were like, this is going to be our guy. He's making a leap. We're going to trade Buddy Heald. We got to give the card keys to Matherin in that spot. And he's been bad. And their offense has still been pretty good. This is a team that anytime you see them, I don't know if you bet basketball, but if they're like plus 11, plus 12, it's like they could beat anybody any night. I'm just telling you. I'm not saying they're going to win a round in the playoffs, but just night to night, that's a team that they could just go 22 for 45 from three, make some shots. And Hal Burton, they actually should be five and two. Hal Burton blew the last possession against Charlotte the other night. But I've enjoyed watching them. I've watched an insane amount of basketball, by the way. All right, next group, the wildcards. I don't have a lot to say about these teams, but we'll go in order. Number 16, New Orleans, just seem jinxed. I'll come back to them in a second. Number 15, Cleveland. I want to see them with Garland and just, I want to watch them for a couple of weeks. I like the Struce edition, but we'll see. The Knicks, they're three and four. Nice win against the Clippers. The Randall thing continues to be nuts. Now he's taking out guys in the other team. Clippers 13, just traded for Harden. We talked about the Knicks and Clippers last week. Look, the Clippers, they played one game and they got killed by the Knicks. They're worse. I told you that last week. Still feel that way. Guess what they can't do now? Any transition stuff. The Knicks, 26 to six in fast break points last night. Rebounding. They got out, rebounded by 17 by the Knicks. Harden just brings so many things that you don't want in a starting five, but then he brings the great passing and the scoring and he can have the ball all the time. They don't need anyone to have the ball all the time because they have all these other guys who need the ball. I just don't like the trade. I continue to not like it and I don't understand it. I actually liked the team they had before they made the trade. So congrats again, Clippers. Number 12, Miami. 28th offensively. Kind of feels worse when you watch them. They haven't had their full team for a couple weeks. I'm not gonna judge them at all until December. I'm not gonna judge Dallas either. Dallas I have at number 11. They're six and one, fourth in offense. They've had a really easy schedule. So that's why, let's see what happens. Their one loss is to Denver. Let's see what happens when they play some tough teams all in a row and have one of those four games in six nights or three on the road. One of those situations. But they are in better shape than they were last year. And you look at the Grant Williams piece, which I'm not spiteful when I watch my old players. I'm rooting for Grant Williams. It's like seeing somebody you dated that you still have a good relationship with. It was nice to see him do well for them. Derek Lively seems like they have something. We talked about him last week, but he's at least like a rim runner in that kind of Nick Claxton world, but maybe a little more violent alley -oop or a little young Clint Cappelli. The Kyrie thing is the piece that I'm really interested in this. He finally had a good game last night, but for this season, 24 % shooting, 3 .8 free throws a game, which are always the two numbers to look at with Kyrie. What's he shooting threes? Is he getting in the line? And so far it's been neither, but he seems happy. When you watch them, they've been a surprisingly pleasant watch, and he seems like in a good spot. So I don't want to jinx it because as annoying as he's been over the years, and you know my stance on Kyrie, I just don't trust him. And I just feel like a seven -year track record of imploding kind of has to start to mean something after a while, but it is fun to watch him play basketball. And it does feel like he's got a specific spot on this team. They don't have to rely on him too much. It's very similar to where he was in 15 and 16 and 17 with the Cavs where he could kind of float in and out like a cat with LeBron. It's like, I'm feeling it. Oh, all right, let's give Kyrie the ball. The shooting going down though, it's a small sample size, but they also haven't been playing tough teams yet. And I'm just monitoring that because with guards, it can kind of sometimes go sideways pretty fast, and you don't realize it happened until after it happened. Just quickly going backwards to number 16, New Orleans, because they lost Ingram, they lost McCollum already. And they have this Hawkins who they drafted that everybody liked coming out of the draft, but the fact that he can play right away has actually kind of saved them a little bit. I just, I still feel like we need to do some sort of ceremony or something with them. Like we need the people from the Conjuring to just do something with New Orleans basketball. It just shouldn't be this bad every year. Your team shouldn't have two, three major injuries every year. You should have good luck at some point. And this goes back to the seventies. Remember, when they moved, when they became the New Orleans Jazz, their first major, major giant trade was for Gail Goodrich with the Lakers. They had to give up two first rounders, and he immediately blew out his Achilles. He played, I'm gonna say, less than a season. And one of the picks turned out to be Magic Johnson. So that's where we started with New Orleans, and it's been awful ever since. Nothing good has happened in this team other than they've won a couple of lotteries, but even the lotteries they won, the Davis, Anthony when they were in Charlotte before they got to New Orleans, they bring him to New Orleans and he wants to leave. And then they win the Zion thing, which seemed like the luckiest thing that ever happened to them. And meanwhile, we're still waiting for him to play two straight months. So Conjuring people, something. We need something to happen with that team. All right, the top 10. We're at a good pace right now. Where are we at? Yeah, feeling good. This is working. Young and hungry is the next thing. We got Oklahoma City at number 10 and Atlanta at number nine. If you remember, Atlanta was one of the, these are the two teams I was going nuts for before the season for their over -unders. I love the Atlanta over -under. I love the New Orleans over. And I like what I've seen from both. OK sees four and three, Atlanta's four and three. Atlanta's sixth in offense. And that's notable because Trae Young has sucked again shooting west. He's 28 % from three. Last year's 33 % from three. This might not be happening the next Steph Curry thing. Like what age does he have to hit where we have to go? All right, he's not the next Steph Curry. Because I think I hit that age last year at age, when I was age 53. I think I hit that for Trae. They killed Minnesota, which is notable. We'll talk about Minnesota in a second. But they really, I watched that game and they really, really, really handled them. I like this Atlanta team. And I think there's a path for them to be a three or a four seed if Trae can get going. And then OKC, trade for a big already. You're a guy short, like stop. You guys have a chance to be like a 50 win team. What are you doing? I want to see what's going on with Josh Getty in about two weeks. Whether it looks different than it has for the first couple of weeks here. I don't like, he's not going in the free throw line at all. 1 .3 a game. 26 % three point shooting, which we knew. He can't shoot threes. But there's also like the Chet piece of it. Seems like it's throwing them off. And I've watched games where they've taken them out at crunch time.
3.5 Weeks Later: Is House Speaker Mike Johnson Right for the Role?
"Know, look, Mike Johnson is a good guy. I know him personally. I know him very well. He's a good guy. He's been on this podcast multiple times. Um, and so sort of get a behind the scenes in him, but chip one, let's start, let's just go before we get to Mike himself and really the problems are there. Did it really? And I'm, this is not, it's sort of rhetorical, but it's not, it was amazing. It took three and a half weeks. Yeah. I mean, I, what does that show us? And cause one of the reasons I wanted to talk to you today about politics is we're going to get into redistricting. We're going to get into elections. We're going to get into stuff that you and I have been dealing with forever. But, um, I think we still have a problem within the conference, even though they came together and I know there's people passing out in their cars right now, please no heavy traffic here, but it did pass unanimously. But you just get the sense that maybe this, it, and, you know, it's going to be a struggle that reveals deeper schisms within the party. Yeah. I mean, look, I mean, you look, it took three and a half weeks in some ways, Doug, it feels like it took a lot longer than that. Right. I mean, you know, three and a half weeks is a long time, but it, it, it feels like now that we have a speaker, it kind of feels like we went six or seven weeks without one. And, um, you know, the, I was watching, um, um, Mike Johnson's first formal press conference today, he gave it this morning. You know, and the thing that struck me is just how, and I don't know, Mike Johnson, like you do, and I'm getting to learn, you know, a lot more about him, just like most of the American people are right now. And what really struck me, Doug, is just how different he is than Kevin. Right. And that, that's not a knock on Kevin. It's just, you know, I mean, there, you know, as individuals and as elected officials and as people, I mean, people have different strengths and weaknesses and different styles. And, you know, Mike Johnson, what he says, his cadence, his personality, his style, um, probably his tactics, his ideology, I didn't realize how they really are different than Kevin. What's not different are the challenges that he faces. Right. I mean, the challenges that he faces are very similar, if not identical to the ones that Kevin faces. And so, yeah, look, he's going to have a little bit of a honeymoon, but it's going to be about this big and still in the honeymoon phase now. But I don't, I don't know how, you know, especially in light of what happened, you know, with the, you know, motion to vacate the chair and eight Republicans voting for all Democrats to, you know, remove Kevin McCarthy as speaker. I don't know with the, the wounds that exist between, um, you know, the, let's just call it the different sides of the caucus. I mean, I don't, I don't know that, uh, you know, I think everybody kind of wants to get along right now and they are in public, but I mean, you know, we're, I think we'll, we'll see where the rubber hits the road here really within the next two or three weeks.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is reaffirming the U .S. commitment to the delivery of life -saving humanitarian assistance in war -torn Gaza. A State Department spokesman said Blinken conveyed that message to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during the Secretary's unannounced visit to the West Bank today. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders emphatically supports Israel's right to defend itself but also says the bombing in Gaza must stop. Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, Sanders said Israel's right to defend itself does not give it the right to kill thousands and thousands of innocent men, women and children. Sanders, who is Jewish, called Hamas an awful terrorist organization and he condemned the group's October 7th attacks on Israelis that led to the Israel -Hamas war. Newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson is defending a House bill that provides more than $14 billion in aid to Israel by cutting an equal amount of funding to the IRS. That money from this giant fund, over $67 billion that's sitting there to build up the IRS, it's more important to protect Israel right now than it is to hire more IRS agents. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, the Louisiana Republican talked about a new way of doing business in Congress. He said he wants Congress to find ways to pay for spending measures instead of adding to the national debt, the bill that was passed in the House.
A highlight from Nick Johnson: ENS - Multichain ENS Domains and Decentralised Identities
"Welcome to Epicenter, the show which talks about the technologies, projects, and people driving decentralization and the blockchain revolution. I'm Sebastian Quattro, and today my guest is Nick Johnson. He's the founder of ENS. ENS is the Ethereum name service. It is the most used, most widely used decentralized naming service and the biggest DAO on Ethereum, and we had Nick on a year ago, and so we're having him back on today to give us a bit of an update on ENS and talk about some of the interesting technical things that are happening with the protocol in terms of expanding to L2s, we'll also talk about governance, we'll talk about some of the look into the future and where the project is going. Nick, thanks for coming on. Pleasure to be here again. So for those who missed the last episode, who maybe had never heard of you or never heard of ENS, which I'm sure is very few people, yeah, why don't we start with a bit of background and how you became interested in decentralized naming services? Sure, yeah. So I've been a software engineer for about, God, about 20 years now, and I've always had interest in sort of internet infrastructure and so forth, and, you know, when, when I first heard about Bitcoin way back, I sort of looked into it and I was like, oh, that's kind of interesting, but that was just money, you know, like there's, what I really want is a programmable platform, and so I sort of came across Ethereum and went suddenly, wow, this is exactly what I was thinking about, this is really very cool, started playing around with it almost immediately, and inside of, you know, three months was, got a call from the Ethereum Foundation saying, hey, would you like to come work with us on, on, you know, go Ethereum or on Swarm or, you know, something, something we're working on, was a bit of a plunge for me because it was going from the comfort of like full employment to a contractor position, you know, big pay cut, you know, unknown future, et cetera, but I was really quite hooked on, you know, Ethereum and, and what we could build with it, and so I quit my job, I, I joined the Ethereum Foundation and pretty much one of my first jobs was to start working on, well, I started working on Swarm, and my first sort of side project was, you know, what can I build in the way of a naming service because one of the very first things that I noticed was how bad the user experience is with, you know, 42 character long hexadecimal addresses and so forth, and I was like, why is this not already here, you know, this seems like a really basic bit of infrastructure to allow people to, you know, not just transact with each other, but interact with contracts and so forth without having to know, you know, the, these identities, you know, we solved this on the internet in like 1985, so I started working on what eventually became the Ethereum name service, started off as a sort of a side project from within the EF, gradually grew to take more of my time until it was my full time job there, and then at some point the EF went, well, you know, it's clear that this is more than one person's work, you know, what about we, we spin you out into your own organisation, give you a generous grant to get started, and you can build this as a full -time project with, you know, with funding, so it basically, it went from there.
A highlight from Mike Gallagher Week in Review for Friday, November 3, 2023

Welcome into The Mike Gallagher Show week in review podcast. Great to have you here. It is Friday, November the third. It's another week chock full of breaking news. Let's begin with this shocker. Over a hundred college professors at Columbia University in New York City signing a letter in support of pro -hamas protesters on campus. The anti -semitism we're seeing in the streets of America, particularly on college campuses, is astounding and we tackled it this week front and center. Over a hundred Columbia University professors signed a letter yesterday defending students who support Hamas. Can you imagine a college professor supporting monsters who put babies in ovens and and cooked them alive? Can you imagine over a hundred Columbia University professors, Ivy League staffers writing a letter supporting the students who defend Hamas? You'd send your kid to college at Columbia, you'd be out of your mind. You would be out of your mind. If you've got a son or daughter who wants to go get some hugely successful career and they think Columbia University is the path to take, you'd be nuts to let your kid go to Columbia, much less pay for it. And donors, you would donate to Columbia University? Over a hundred professors defending students who are supporting bloodthirsty animalistic terrorists. They put babies in ovens. They raped women and broke their legs before murdering them. They chopped soldiers' heads off. They chopped babies' heads off. And these moron professors, and they are morons, they are ignorant fools, wrote a letter demanding for support the moron students defending terrorism. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has a brand new speaker. He's Representative Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. Democrats are none too happy about this guy. In fact, they are literally denouncing his Bible -believing Christianity. Wait till you hear what MSNBC personality and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to say about Mike Johnson's religious beliefs. Does the Bible inform your worldview? The new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, a little -known congressman from Louisiana, has had the audacity to admit that for him the Bible informs his worldview. Jen Psaki was the White House Press Secretary. She now has her own show on MSNBC, and she is undoubtedly very popular among the left. I want you to hear Jen Psaki expressing her shock and disgust and mortification at the newly elected Speaker of the House, admitting that he's a Bible -believing Christian. So let's take a few minutes to talk about this new speaker. First glance, Mike Johnson does seem fine, fine -ish. Conservative, yes, but he once started a civility caucus with a Democrat. And I mean, if nothing else, he wears a suit and has glasses. How threatening can this guy actually be? Well, he gave us all a little clue as to how he would govern in an interview this week. I am a Bible -believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, it's curious. People are curious. What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun? I said, well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That's, that's my worldview. You heard that right. The Bible doesn't just inform his worldview. It is his worldview. In fact, during his first speech in his new job, Johnson suggested that his election as speaker was an act of God. Talk about a bit of a humble brag there. So what exactly has God apparently called on Mike Johnson to do? Well, his views on policy are essentially what you'd expect from a religious fundamentalist. They're more divisive than they are divine. She's threatened. They're threatened by a religious fundamentalist like Mike Johnson. And you heard what she, the way she described it. It's threatening. We should be scared because he's a Christian. Now you just heard that, right? I mean, I'm not hallucinating, right? I just played a clip from MSNBC and she's got some MSNBC bona fides. She was the White House press secretary. She's no slouch in terms of elocution. She knows what she's saying. She forms the word. She's reading those words on a teleprompter. Let me again repeat what Jen Psaki just told her national audience. We should be scared of Mike Johnson because he's a Christian. Let that sink in. This is the Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review podcast. I hope you'll subscribe. Don't miss any of the great content that we produce every single day. If you missed anything, you'll catch up with us. The Israeli consulate in New York City invited the media to a special event. They shared firsthand evidence of the brutality of Hamas in Israel. This is very difficult to hear, but we can't turn away. We must be aware of what actually happened on October 7th in Israel. Kelly Jane Torrance writes about it. None of us wanted to see such sites, this person writes, but none of us would give up the opportunity. The world needs to know what happened. Journalists, about 20 of us had to leave our cell phones and Apple watches at the door. Some of the footage had never been released and Israeli authorities had their reasons for showing it only to select reporters and some select others like Joe Biden. They're concerned about the feelings of the families involved. They also don't want such horror and humiliation broadcast worldwide. One retired major general and reservist, Mickey Edelstein said, we have values. This reporter said, human beings still have the capacity to shock if one can call Hamas human beings. I will long be haunted by what I saw. The footage eases you into things, she writes, a little. Terrorists fire at motorists on the highway. They enter a kibbutz and blow an ambulance's tires first. They shoot a dog who reminds, who remains shaking on the street. They light a home on fire. Then, then they start entering the houses. Israel collected video from a wide variety of sources, public closed circuit TV, traffic cameras, dash cams of terrorists and of victims, as well as their social media posts and messages at home. You can hear the murderers breathe heavily as they nervously approach their prey. It was almost impossible to watch the council general admitted afterward. He couldn't even stay for the whole screening. A father tries to get his young children dressed only in underpants safely to a backyard shelter. A grenade lands before he can close the door. He's dead. A terrorist takes the two boys back into the house. The security camera captures their devastation. The blast blinded one boy in an eye, the other falls to the ground, plaintively pleading, why am I alive? Why am I alive? Blood is everywhere. A man with his nose blown off, headless Israeli soldiers, an elderly woman clad only in her brightly colored underwear, never meant to be seen by so many. Piles of bodies surrounded by young men, celebrating, chanting Aluakbar. A broken woman is taken from the back of a Jeep, the rear of her pants covered in blood. We can easily understand what likely happened to her. Young men clamor over trying to get a look inside. Women who were raped had their legs broken, then they were killed. So they were raped, they had their legs broken, and then they were murdered. Many times Kelly Jane Torrance writes, I wanted to look away, but I forced myself not to. We journalists had to see so what happened we could tell the world. Yet here is a line from a CBS news piece written by a journalist who saw the footage, quote, in another clip, a militant stands over a man who appears to have been shot in the gut and hacks at him multiple times with a garden hoe. Interestingly, the words terrorist or terrorism don't appear in this piece. They don't appear in the New York Times report of that screening either. I can tell you it was not a militant who stands over a man. A group of terrorists argue over who gets to behead the man. A Thai worker bleeding profusely from his stomach but still alive. Someone hacks at him repeatedly with a hoe trying to behead him. Every single time the terrorist yells Alua Akbar. That difference in detail is why the consulate staff sat through 45 minutes of misery. They need people to see what happened. Sure, dead babies were found without their heads, but who knows who did the deed, according to journalists from serious publications, supposedly publications. serious She says, the hate I witnessed goes beyond those who entered Israel. A young man uses a dead Israeli woman's phone to call his parents and brag of killing 10 Jews, quote, with my bare hands. He pleads to his father, please be proud of me, dad. That's the culture Israel must fight. Then there's New York City. A day after the screening of this video, thousands of anti -Semites marched into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge after a rally at the Brooklyn Museum. At the front were people holding a banner that read, by any means necessary. This journalist who saw these atrocities committed by these monsters, these savages called Hamas, writes, understand what a sign like that means. These people know what happened October 7th. They're gathering in large numbers in New York and cities around the world, including America, to show their support for the animals who committed these atrocities. They are as bloodthirsty as the heavy breathing terrorists whose voices the people of Israel will never get out of their heads. And that's so important. You must know what pro -Hamas demonstrators are. On the pop culture front, actor Matthew Perry, best known for his role on the sitcom series Friends, passed away at the age of 54. He was found in his hot tub in his Los Angeles home, apparently drowned. A very interesting conversation resulted in vaccines with the shocking death of Matthew Perry. 54 years old, he was one of the stars of Friends. He was found dead in his jacuzzi at his Los Angeles home. And right away, people started rushing in saying he was a big pro -vaccination guy. The anti -vaxxers, as they're known, went bonkers, saying, how does a 54 -year -old guy who was allegedly clean and sober, he had had a lifetime of trouble with drugs and alcohol, apparently, rough life, he had gotten his act together, he wrote a memoir last year, and he was lounging in his jacuzzi, and he died. And so far, the police say, no sign of foul play. There were some prescription drugs found, but no illegal drugs or illicit drugs. And this guy was part of the culture and one of the most successful sitcom actors of all time, and one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, Friends. And apparently, he had his personal assistant go out to run some errands. The assistant came back after a couple hours and found this guy dead in the jacuzzi in the backyard of the pool. A lot of people were tweeting and writing on social media. This is not a conspiracy theory. People are suddenly dying. People are having heart attacks. And they pointed out that Matthew Perry had tweeted out like a year ago, could I be any more vaccinated? Get your shot and then get your shirt. Shop the entire collection. And it was a collection of t -shirts bragging about getting vaccinated. And people were tweeting out things like, do you believe Matthew Perry died from heart issues in his jacuzzi that were caused by him getting so many COVID vaccines? Again, he once promoted a t -shirt that said, could I be any more vaccinated? Well, you know, I know we don't want to open up that whole can of worms again. On the other hand, did you see the story about the new analysis by the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, said that there may be an increase in the risk of stroke when you get a COVID shot on the same day as when you get certain flu vaccines. A new analysis found the link was clearest in adults over 85. It applied to the Pfizer and Moderna COVID booster vaccines. The FDA said the risk might stem from the flu vaccine alone and be completely unrelated to the COVID shots. I think it's fair to say, and I just want to start right here and say, whether we like it or not, most Americans, I think, and I want you to correct me if you think I've got this wrong, most Americans have a deep distrust over just about any vaccine. There was a horrific incidence of violence this week in New York City. It erupted after an argument between neighbors of a New York City apartment building. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. Maybe you've seen the ghastly video of a neighbor in an apartment building who executed a father and his stepson over a dispute regarding noise. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. It's awful. I don't want to play it. I mean, this guy came with a gun ready to confront this family. There had apparently been a history of arguing between these two tenants of the apartment building, I think it was in Brooklyn, and the family comes out to confront the guy. He's wearing a jacket. He's dressed all in black. And the closed circuit surveillance cameras are just crystal clear. One thing about this closed circuit TVs now, the video quality is as good as anything you see on a TV network. You can get these ring cameras and everything, and they're a real good deterrent, I think, for criminals, because they work well. I've got a whole set of them at a property that I own, and you can see everything. It records automatically. If there's movement, you can set all kinds of settings. Anyway, they had a closed circuit camera in the hallway of this apartment building. This guy's waiting. He's pacing. They're arguing. The dad comes out, and he's very threatening. He's apparently a bodybuilder. The father was this big, hulking, you know, muscular, tall guy. And he storms out with a pair of scissors in his hand, and they're arguing about the noise. And according to news reports, you know what the noise was? The family that the other guy was objecting to, they lived above this guy, and they didn't have carpeting on the floor. So whenever they walked, they were walking on wood floors, and it made a lot of noise, and it just aggravated the guy down below. So the guy down below shows up. He's in the hallway. He's got a jacket on. They're arguing. The family's arguing. The big, you know, bodybuilder is towering over the guy with a pair of scissors. Well, the shorter guy that came up to complain, he pulls out a gun, a handgun. The father immediately retreats. Doesn't matter. This guy starts blasting away. He shoots the dad multiple times. It's all caught on camera. The son, the stepson, tries to get away. He executes the stepson, pumps him full of bullets, and then he goes over to the dad, who's trying to get up. He's fallen by the door and puts a couple more bullets in his head for good measure. I mean, it was a stone cold execution. And there was a big debate on social media about whether or not it was self -defense or not. Well, of course it wasn't self -defense. He executed them. He's arguing with them about noise in an apartment. Now a family is shattered. And the breaking news, the reason I'm telling you this whole story is there is some news. They got the guy. Police shot him at a traffic stop moments ago in Brooklyn. The 47 -year -old suspect, Jason Pass, was in a car when police got a hit on his license plate. They performed a traffic stop, at which point the situation took a violent turn. He charged at the cops with a knife. They shot him. He's been rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. So everybody's lives are... And there's a moral to the story here. And the reason I think it's important to talk about it is more and more people are arming themselves. It's inevitable. Look at the world around us. Listen, I'm starting up the process again here in Florida. Years ago, I got a concealed carry permit course that I took in South Carolina. But you know, it's been years. I was living in New York City. You sure aren't supposed to have a gun in New York. And now that I'm a Florida resident, I'm going to be armed. You were there with Mike Lindell through thick and through thin. You appreciate that Mike has been targeted and they've tried to stop him.

This is the Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review Podcast. It's Friday, November the 3rd. This week, actress Mayim Bialik took to TikTok to share her feelings about the war in Israel and the anti -Semitism that we're witnessing, the wave of disturbing anti -Semitic protests happening all around the world.
Sen. Mike Johnson: We Cannot Waste Anytime Aiding Israel
"Pay for that commitment to our friend and ally. We cannot waste any time getting Israel the aid it needs. We're going to work on that. The has President been character assassinated by Hakeem the Democrats in Congress and the Democrats in the media, relentlessly. He's a good man. He's a man of faith, if he's a Christian man. He's a man who loves this country. He's told me he's been to Israel many times. I met him at that conference I just told you about in Las Vegas. I see didn't him. He came up to me, could not have been kinder. Now listen to the difference. Here's Dick Durbin on CNN today. Dick Durbin on CNN. Why is he on CNN? Because they want to give voice to the

When I'm president, they'll be on life support because we're going to get rid of the 87 ,000 IRS agents. Now, from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. I walk into the studios today and I get a text from Chris in Orlando, Florida, saying, Mike, if the boot controversy doesn't end Ron DeSantis' chances, his interview on MSNBC this morning surely will. He fell right in line and was the perfect patsy for them. I wonder what he said on MSNBC this morning. I wonder if anybody really cares about the boots. Who cares about the boots? My goodness, they're going on like this is the biggest controversy since Watergate. The boots. I saw an article in Politico. Politico is supposed to be a serious publication. Three are experts maintaining that he's got lifts in his boots. Three. Not one. Not two. But three. That's Politico? I mean, I get it when it's a late night comic. I understand people like Stephen Colbert making fun of Ron DeSantis. They're going to go after any Republican for anything. And there's a part of me that thinks they really want Trump. Anyway, they don't like DeSantis because he's too serious. He's a serious guy. Here's Stephen Colbert last night on The Late Show on CBS. And if you haven't followed this, I mean, I guess DeSantis likes cowboy boots. So he wears cowboy boots all the time. And I've seen videos. Admittedly, he walks a little awkwardly. I'm trying to be generous here and I don't want to pile on, but I admit there's one video. Maybe it was AI. Maybe it was artificial intelligence that made it look like he's walking in a peculiar way. But it looks like he's having a hard time, like, walking in those boots. That, to me, is more significant than whether or not he's actually, whether he's got lifts. He's 5 '11", he said. I don't know. Is he short? Who cares? Who really cares if he's short or tall? I don't know why that's a factor. Here's Stephen Colbert last night having some fun. Hope everybody had fun out last night. It was Halloween. And the one thing I love, you see this sometimes, the next day, you'll see some of the little ones still in their costumes. I saw, isn't that great? I saw this cute little fella, saw this cute little fella going around today in adorable cowboy boots. What was his name? Governor Ron DeSantis. You see, just a little shaver, just a little shaver of a guy. Just so, like, I'm a cowboy. And so fun, just so fun, having a good time. You see, DeSantis wears only cowboy boots. And here's the thing, cowboy boots, they're great. If you're a cowboy. If you're the governor of Florida, you look like a dork. Nobody believes he's roping doggies in Tampa. Nobody believes. Well, I guess, you know, okay. I don't know. I mean, and it's everywhere. Nikki Haley got in on it. Nikki Haley compared DeSantis' cowboy boots to her high heels. I mean, I cannot believe I'm asking you about DeSantis and the cowboy boots. But I've got a ton, a ton of people writing me saying he's done. It's over. And I'm thinking, surely, whether or not he wears lifts in his cowboy boots or whatever isn't going to be the determining factor as to whether he's the nominee in 2024. Wait till Trump gets a hold of this. I mean, he's busy in a courtroom, but, you know, I'm sure he's going to weigh in. I don't see Donald Trump in cowboy boots, do you? So, you know, all these guys, they have a look, right? Glenn Youngkin wears the vests, and I guess DeSantis wears the cowboy boots, although I've seen him with the vest as well. Here was Nikki Haley last night on Comedy Central. She was on The Daily Show, of all places, trying to expand her reach, I guess, to potential voters. Here she is making fun of Ron DeSantis and the cowboy boots. My last question, are you wearing higher heels than Ron DeSantis next week at the debate so you can look taller than him on the stage? I don't know. We'll have to figure that out. I can tell you, I've always talked about my high heels. I've never, you know, hid that from anybody. I've always said don't wear them if you can't run in them, so we'll see if he can run in them. Now, by the way, is that Charlamagne the God? What is Charlamagne the God doing on The Daily Show?

"We very well might have a speaker. We might have a speaker. Mike Johnson is the speaker designate. We're going to have a vote hopefully momentarily here, but don't pop the champagne yet. Mike Johnson is a great man. He's been on the program. He's solid. He's very smart. He's argued in front of the Louisiana Supreme Court. He is a true patriot, a godly man, and this process, this process, we went through basically everybody. Thank goodness Emmer did not get it. It was a big win for the grassroots. Good job, everybody. Emmer just folded like a cheap suit. Go back to Minnesota to do deals with Democrats. There were other people that we wanted. I mean, Jim Jordan would have been terrific. Mike Johnson is similar of the similar kind of vein and form as Jim Jordan. He's tough. He's smart, and let me prove it to you. This morning, some anti -social person that works for, what is this, the New York magazine? Jonathan Chait says, all right everybody, you have to hate him. House Speaker nominee Mike Johnson, New Yorker. I thought it was New York. No, I think it was, I don't think it's New Yorker. I was right, not New Yorker. House Speaker nominee Mike Johnson was the mastermind of the January 6 plot. Oh, they're already telling us that we must hate him. He is the architect of January 6. By the way, he was one of the most and continues to be one of the most articulate advocates for election integrity. Okay, so it's the New York magazine. They have a blog called The Intelligencer. It's many of the New York publications do we need exactly. Johnson used to be a relatively obscure right wing backbencher, threw himself behind Trump's election subversion crusade. At first, Johnson endorsed both Trump's old mail fraud claims and his newer voting machine theories. In a friendly radio interview two weeks before the election, he said, they're supposed to say this as a way to try to make you hate him. A lot of us know intuitively that there are a lot of amiss about this election day. The fact that all these states with Democrat leaders change the rules, true, in the fourth quarter of the game, true, and the allegations of these voting machines, some being rigged, and a lot of merit in the software by certain voting companies. And when the president says the election was rigged, that's what he's talking about. The fix was in.

"So there's a lot to this processing this stuff, honestly. We're talking to Abby Johnson. You can go to abbyj .com and why wouldn't you go to abbyj .com? You can find me at ericmetaxas .com. We'll be right back. To his knee Got to be a joker He just do what he please Comes a time When you're drifting Comes a time when you settle down Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to Abby Johnson. We're in Orlando at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention. Abby, you have gone from being all in for abortion to being all out against it. And you live your life now talking about this issue. And we had, I don't know, what was it? A year ago, the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The Dobbs decision. Most of us, I mean, it's kind of like I was growing up. I didn't ever think there would be a time in my life when the Soviet Union wouldn't exist. So when that happened, I said, wait, wait, what? It's kind of like somebody saying like, oh, there's only four continents now. You'd be like, wait a minute. No, no, no, this is a given. This doesn't change. When Roe v. Wade was overturned, I really thought like, this is one of those things I can't believe that this has happened in my lifetime. And I want to say this upfront. If it weren't, in my opinion, for the guts of Donald Trump to stand up for the appointment of Kavanaugh, to stand up and to be, people need, I don't care if you hate him for any other reason. He ends up being the most pro -life president in history. Now, lately, of course, he's been weird and waffling and I don't want to necessarily get into that. But I just want to say that the celebration over the overturning of Roe v. Wade in the churches, it was kind of lacking. People thought that, you know, I don't want to like, I don't want to be too celebratory over this. And it's kind of like, this would be like the Emancipation Proclamation. How can you not be celebrating this? Sure. It's a big deal. I mean, this was the largest victory we've probably ever had in the pro -life movement, the overturning of Roe. I don't want, I was a little fearful when Roe was overturned because I was a little worried that people were going to think, oh, well. We're done. Now we're done, right? I mean, that's it. Abortion's over, that's it. And unfortunately for a lot of people, that is what they think. And we've seen that I've talked to other nonprofits, pro -life nonprofits, talked to other groups, and they're saying that their activism numbers are down, their fundraising dollars are down, volunteerism numbers are down. And I think that is kind of a misnomer, that people think that Roe v. Wade was the end all be all of abortion. And that's absolutely not true. There's so much work that we need to do. And in fact, I think overturning Roe actually made it harder on ourselves in the pro -life movement because we went from one federal battle now to 51 individual battles, if you include DC, which unfortunately we have to. Yeah, in other words, people don't understand, because they don't really understand what was at stake with Roe v. Wade. They don't understand what was won in its overturning. Right, well they don't understand the case, right? So they just think like, oh, Roe gone, abortion gone. But that's far.

"Folks, welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. ["Legacy PM Investments"] Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me, so I'm telling you, don't be fooled. The real Eric's in jail. Hey there, folks. It's Tuesday. It is. And I'm sitting here with, what's your name again? My first guest. No, no, no. You're my producer, Albin. Hi, hi. Albin, we're in Orlando. People are hearing this odd background noise. We are doing the program at the NRB in Orlando. Tons of people walking around. The fun thing about being here is we get all kinds of guests in person that normally we wouldn't get to do them in person. For example, today's show, one hour, I'm talking to the great Abby Johnson. Many of you know her. She is a hero in the pro -life movement. She was a director for many years of a Planned Parenthood Clinic. She had a horrific experience, saw the light. Her story is told in the film, Unplanned. So she is my guest today, sitting right here next to me. Also, I'm talking to the guys. You can't make these guys up. Basically, Marcus Pittman and Jason Farley have started something called Lure TV. We'll tell you about it. But this gives me hope. Both of these figures that I, well, all three of them, give me hope. These are heroic figures. Lure TV is in the entertainment space. I'm very excited about that. Excited to talk to them. Excited to talk to Abby Johnson. All week long, we've got all kinds of guests. But Alvin, we've gotta mention a few things before. I've got a crazy story. I don't know if I'll get to tell it today about what happened to me in New York Cab the other day. I'm not gonna get to talk really about the passing of Tim Keller, just because we don't have the time. But both you and I went to Redeemer. Yeah. I met my wife Anne there. Benefited from his ministry. And I ended up at the end of his life disagreeing with him sort of politically, but always loved and respected him. But I did disagree with him, but respectfully disagree with him. And I wrote about it in my book, Letter to the American Church. But just shocking when you hear that someone that you've known for so many years like as a fixture is suddenly. Yeah, very sad. Suddenly gone. I guess I wanna mention, I've got a crazy New York story, but before we get to that, we should mention that this month, so this month is coming to a close, but this month we're doing a very, very, very important campaign with CSI, Christian Solidarity International. Many of you know what that is, and I'm here to tell you that we are grateful to every one of you who goes to our website metaxistalk .com and participates with us. Why? Because Christian Solidarity International, sounds like we're making this up, they are freeing slaves in the Sudan. Hard for us to believe, but in Africa, there are people enslaved. Of course, these are Sudanese, usually Sudanese radical Muslims who have enslaved Christians, and this has been going on for a long time. We ask you, if you can, to participate. In fact, we don't tell you how much. $250 is the amount that frees a slave and sets them up in a life of freedom, so we want to encourage everybody to participate, but I want to particularly encourage those of you who cannot give $250, not to say, well, because I can't give that, I'm gonna skip this, you know. This is an amazing opportunity. It's that rare evil is as naked as it is. The idea that we have actual slaves, we've talked about it on this program in the past with guests, but it's a horrific reality that they're living with, but the good news is you can do something about it. This is not one of those things like, well, there's nothing I can do but pray. No, you can do something about it. Any penny that you give goes toward freeing slaves in the Sudan and bringing them into a life of freedom, setting them up in a life of freedom, so it's an exciting opportunity, and I want to encourage people, if it's possible for you to participate, please, folks. I want everyone to participate, and it does not matter how much. It does not matter. Go to metaxistalk .com. You can give $5 a month. You can give $5 one time. The point is, it's for such a good cause that I feel driven to exhort you to please don't let this slip past you. Yeah, and the banner is right at the very top of the page, at metaxistalk .com. You don't have to scroll up. It's right there. It's the first thing you see. It's the first thing you see at metaxistalk .com. Give whatever you can, folks. Please do that, just because it's rare that you find an organization like CSI that you can depend on them utterly. They're not some big bureaucracy where you're kind of wondering what they're doing with their money, so I just want to say it's a beautiful opportunity. It's a privilege that we get to do something about this. You get to live out your faith in a very, very tangible way, so please go to metaxistalk .com. Don't forget to do that. We.

"I want to get into the Lakers roster moving forward and what their rotation is going to look like. But before I leave Stanley Johnson behind here, I need to finish with this, the health and safety protocols, omicron, all this stuff that's been hitting the NBA. This is a tough thing for the NBA. Tough thing to deal with. You're essentially bringing in replacement players. Gilead guys are coming in. In fact, Joe Johnson played in the NBA, right? That's how desperate. Their Collison. Darren Collison. That's how desperate. The league got. For just players, just so we don't have to cancel games. Give us guys who can somewhat competently put on an NBA Jersey and go up and down the floor. The next step would have been grabbing athletic looking fans. Out of the stands and putting putting jerseys on them and saying, here, here you go, you hop in. You can play for a little bit for us. They had to find guys. And that's tough. That's tough for the league to get through that's tough for the product on the court that's tough for fans who bought tickets to those games, wanting to see the stars and next thing you know, the stars are out for ten days. That's tough. But the silver lining was that you were going to get all of these guys who were going to get opportunities. Opportunities that they wouldn't get otherwise and we knew that for some guys. Some guys they would get they would join the team and they might never set foot on the floor. Other guys will join a team and actually get some minutes. And for a select few, they were not only going to get minutes, but they were going to impress teams enough to potentially earn a job in the NBA. Again, that was the silver lining. That's the feel good part of this is these guys who have been cloned to get back in the NBA. It's Stanley Johnson was out of the league, now had an opportunity to earn their way back in that they would not have received otherwise and credit to Stanley Johnson. He sees that opportunity and he ran with it. Yeah, and Stanley Johnson is a former lottery pick and obviously that doesn't mean too much. It doesn't mean he's going to become a superstar anytime soon..

"For Christmas Day in Milwaukee. How excited are you for a tilt between whoever's playing on these two squads? Yeah, if Giannis has been playing, depending on the players. I'm so excited because it'll be like a Christmas Day game and like two 32, nationally televised, like there's all that stuff. I think I would be more excited. I'm from the Midwest, but maybe if I was somewhere a little warmer it would be a little bit more exciting, but otherwise I'm pretty pumped for the trail, honestly. I think it'll be a lot of fun. I think, you know, well, we'll see what the on the player front, especially with salt things having 8 players protocols. But hopefully some guys come out. On both sides of the teeth see you a little bit of a better product than that. But it has been in the past week or so. Absolutely. But we know one guy that should be there is Joe Johnson, 40 road Joe Johnson, who, you know, I was kind of surprised here, and I'm curious, this was like front page news like everywhere yesterday. This was maybe the biggest story in the NBA on Wednesday when Joe Johnson signs with the heart of exception. He's been out of the league for two years, but I think he tried to come back with the pistons, was it being a last season and got caught at the end of the 2019 20 so well, first of all, let's just talk about the end of the game against the calves there. You're there to you saw it first thing to see the amount of energy from the crowd in terms of getting him in the game there. I mean, this wasn't like taco level, but I think it's pretty close in terms of what the volume seemed like in terms of how excited they were to get him on the floor again in that game. I wasn't at the game just for close contact reasons. Just precautionary. I'm fine. But I think the quote that I thought about that actually was a chance. I was like, wow, no, we want to talk about chance and if we want Joe chance, which is kind of ironic, because taco. They already got toddler. He started the game from tip, obviously. Safety protocol stuff. Yeah. But I thought that was really cool. It was funny. I was just getting like a bunch of like random people have been heard from for like, they're like, you're going to see Joe Johnson tonight. I'm like, I mean, kind of. Like he's on the Celtics. This is really cool. And I think there is something really cool about Joe Johnson, is because he may kind of mention with Galen and Jason, roughly where the same age and Joe Johnson is like, this looks like he was one of the.

Thank you so much for joining me today. To talk about audience insights. Thanks brian for me. Yeah so i wanted to ask. Audience insights is is something. I had a chance to cover a little while ago. And i think it's so valuable. And i love it and pod sets so well known for attribution lift reports and and really that type of tool pods has a new tool covering audience insights. When did that happen. Why did that happen. We really thought and your publisher partners earlier this year. you know. We want to equip our partners with merdeka about their listeners. So we partner with two of the biggest audience insights providers in the space at large nielsen and experience. So this was helping publishers figure out. Who's listening to their audience. Demographics understanding occupation data purchase intent. Be think it's really valuable for publishers. Had that data which in turn could help them create better content. I think that's superstar. And it's really interesting because plod sites when i think about it right like an audience when i portrayed it was about selling ads and what i thought was really need is the first step forward that pod stuck with this is about improving your content and like learning about your audience. Do that right. So that's now. Pots is traditionally a company that focuses on advertisers. What this is a new focus right on the publisher side right. Yes so sensual for publishers and know our publishers are able to take advantage of a handful of different tools with attribution to the they can empower their advertisers to have data about the performance of those ads as well as understanding their marketing. Campaigns are their marketing strategies to build their audience working for them so our focus that we're kind of pivoting towards now is like what additional value can we drive for advertisers coming into the space. So we have some new tools in the works at to help advertisers even better scale their their investment podcasting.

It's a lot of fun for me in a big thrill after after all the great work done and I mean i think you're one of the people that i don't think science would be popular on television with somebody like you not coming along doing what you did kind. I appreciate it. I i have always considered myself very lucky to have been able to To be in the right place and the right time my friend joe hornell was my composer on so many of my shows used to have a little sign on his piano. That said bloom where you're planted and i always sort of. That's sort of a nice bottom. I guess so. That's what i try to do is to do the best. I could given the the money in the time that i've had to work with and And certainly i've been.

Its hooks into me and you know what would what would it be like what happened to the characters. Where did they go. Where did they end up the ones that we hated the ones that we love what the world look like and and i realized that There was an opportunity there to to sort of continue the allegory the metaphor particularly since when i had done via originally there were two superpowers vying. For dominance in the world you know the soviet union and us and there's just this one hyperpower and our leaders say you know you're wise leaders know what's best for you so trust us and stay the course and don't ask too many questions or we'll send you to guantanamo and you know and i and i realized that There was an opportunity there to sort of make some comments on on our society today but same time carry on a great sort of action adventure thriller that i had I had originated all those years ago.
