"From Nigeria now where the authorities in the northern state of Kaduna Have ordered the immediate closure of schools in areas vulnerable to attacks. This came after gunmen abducted about 150 students from a boarding school, a number of people as well, including a baby from a hospital. And what is seen as the latest peak of a spate of kidnappings. The BBC's shock. Ali joins us from Abuja first off any news on the kidnapped Children. Well, Lawrence. No news yet as to where these Children, uh or what the rescue mission has achieved so far, but it is believed that the abductors are holding this students about 150 also of them, You know, nearby Forest and the security forces are saying that that Try condemn to try to rescue the victims and Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari issued a statement condemning the attack and also saying that, um the continued must kidnapping of students is threatened in school enrolment in Nigeria, which already Has been very poor with more than 10 million out of school Children, So the closure of the school, according to many, is another measure. That's likely to have a negative impact on the education, uh, of Children in northern Nigeria in particular, and in the past, several states took a similar measure, but that did not solve The kidnapping. I mean, it's been such a big problem education in the North, particularly partly, of course, because militant groups actively wanted to shut schools. They wanted to stop that influence on young people. But is the thought that these latest attacks are driven ideologically by that, or this is opportunists Bandits. Well. Basically, there is no clear indication that the lead test mass abductions are linked to any ideological motives, but purely for money purposes. This armed criminal gangs, kidnapping students and also members of the community to get money ransom from either Families or the government. But it appears they you know, used a similar template. But I mean, used by Boko Haram in 2014. When they kidnapped the chibok girls that attracted international attention. It appears the criminals borrowed That template to carry out this kidnappings. But the motive is quite different, and the security situation across the country is quite Very terrible and the authorities seem to have lost. You know, some sort of control of the situation. Their strategies are not working. Obviously, the military strategy is not working and also in states where negotiations have been done. It appears the negotiations to have not yet yielded positive results in terms of ending the kidnapping crisis. But of course, even at that some progress has been made in terms of, uh, you know, court process. For example, On Monday, four men were sentenced to life in prison for abducting the local businessmen and collecting $300,000 as ransom demand later died. So even though there's a lot of problem, but that is seen as good news in the context of the terrible security situation. We've got the president saying that it's despicable but not actually outlining any tactics. The governor in Kaduna, I understand taking his own child. Out of school as well. Wherever people look, they see the state in effect retreating from this, but has any element of the state or any area being successful in taking this on? I ask that because you just mentioned there. You know what? We don't usually hear about a successful operation and trial against kidnappers, so Is there any evidence or good practice around? Well, the security forces in some cases, uh, you know, succeeded in arresting some of these and criminal guns or killing some of them in clashes, But the successes are far below the expectation of Nigerians. And of course, the security situation is deteriorating. So the kind of progress that is being made in in in some of these operations is not released. Something to you know, right? About because people have been kidnapped on a daily basis. People have been killed and these students that have just been abducted just a the the letter set of you know such victims because more than 1000 students have been abducted since December, and these parents, I mean, the parents of these kids have been traumatized. Obviously, they have worried. Many are worried about sending their Children to school. Even the letters victims. Some of the parents told us that they were worried even before the kidnapping because they only allowed them to go to the school because exam was due to take place. But they were not confident about the security situation and the abduction actually happened. So the situation is quite terrible, but the authorities are saying that they're succeeding, but it's not very, very clear as to how they are going to tackle the problem once and for all. Many, many thanks as ever from Abuja, the BBC's chocolate Meanwhile, on the opposite shore of the continent, Kenya has announced its setting up an elite squad to combat child kidnapping. There's been a spate of cases involving Children being snatched from residential and commercial areas. In various towns across the country. It was also the focus of the BBC Africa I investigation last year, which found Children being sold for as little as $400, Let's talk to and Katha Ago. Founder of Frolics of Hope, Africa It's a charity that supports Children and family have experienced kidnapping child trafficking. Early marriage is at MGM, she knows is that from the city of The Carol Good to talk to you and Katha. Tell us why. Then these Children are being abducted. Are there many reasons Obviously, there are several reasons why a child could be kidnapped and among actually key among them could be because of our finances in terms of asking for ransom and other times could be just, you know, for human sacrifices, and other times we see them going through child labor. And, of course, there's the cheap labor aspect of it. And then there is also sex exploitation. Your charity has been dealing with some recent cases. I believe these are linked to child, a child trafficking ring. Yes, Okay. And how widespread is this? Then? Have bigger problem Is it It is a huge problem in the community, because most of the time it actually takes less than two minutes for your child to be snatched from you.

I felt as best as i felt so far in the tournament tonight physically mentally as well. I was hitting the ball. Very well mixing. The pace didn't give given the same looks at all always kind of kept king guessing and served. Well when i when. I needed to get out of trouble. You know late in the second set and I'm just very pleased with the performance. It came at the right time. The world number-one also paid tribute to collapse of. Who is the first player in the open era to reach a grand slam semi on debut. But that's where the fairy tale ended for the twenty seven year. Old is was a great two weeks for me. They sell for the quality. It's a good experience yet to play against not like he's helped me to get these experienced To fill the the game how he's playing jock. Now has two days to prepare for. Sunday night's final against the winner of tomorrow's semi between daniil medvedev and stefanos tsitsipas regardless of who i facing sunday. You know it's going to be. I'm ready for battle for the toughest matches of the tournament without a doubt. I mean both of these guys are in great form. Medvedev is playing on a swimmingly high quality. He's on a winning streak over twenty matches one. He's he's just the man to beat you know and The other hand percents Produce son phenomenal dennis. Night against rafa coming back from two sets down against rough on a grand slam. Any grand slam is a huge effort in other results today. Von dodig and felipe policymaker into the men's doubles final often upstaging nikola mak teach mata popovich. It took the non said's a little under two hours to seal the four six six four six three victory their opponents to be decided tomorrow in mixed doubles six aids ram and crutch kava progress to the final following a six three six three victory. Over all these sanders and pohlmann's they'll face the winner of an unseeded semifinal club. Chicken salisbury outclassing clip action scoops six three six four setting up a semifinal with wild cod star search and abdin who brushed aside katha and ngo six three six. Two way combining really well. We're enjoying it. We're having some fun. And yeah today was better with some people in the stands and making it citing makes doubles is about having fun and enjoying it. So when there's people there to kind of try and entertain that much better than playing in front of nine one. So i think we both really enjoy being out there this morning looking ahead today. Twelve and daniil medvedev in stefanos tsitsipas take center stage tomorrow. Night to decide who will play novak djokovic. In sunday's men's final. To preview the match i was again joined by nick. Malvo and metro arp similar a soccer. Actually who just won her twentieth. Straight match against serena medvedev has extended winning streak to nineteen. And he's going to. He's twentieth street. Which is just really cool. Symmetry in both sides of the role. He was brilliant against of continued domination of that head to head. I don't think he's ever dropped a set against andrei rubel of now. He's playing. he's playing right and it's the nicer if he wins to get to this point he's got the streak but it's also he's won so many matches against top ten players among that non chain in a row with more notable. He's backing a slam semi he might be. Us open semi finals last year. But this is the furthest gone in australia. Must be feeling really really good and comes into a match with an opponent in that he dominates the head to head. It's five and one. He's kind of own sit surpass. So yeah it'd be really interesting to see that dynamic continuing to into this match in nagoya about the grade class not coming from two sets to love down against rafael nadal me treatment of to try and five i mean it's mind blowing. What's he was able to do against. Rafa helped him a little bit in that third. Set tiebreak yet. Had a couple unforced errors. That were really uncharacteristic. As far as rafa goes but take no credit away from cesar bass who had his breakthrough here on the main stage a couple of years ago against roger only to lose to rafa in the semi final. He's taken those two years. John i think to come full circle. He's been a fixture at the top of the men's game and for the way that he continued to back himself self against rafa he's going to have to do that. Against medvedev medvedev had more rest after that quarterfinal drubbing of rube lab. Where caesar past played late into the morning actually against rafa. So i think the body has to be right. But he's going to give himself a fighting chance that one in five head to head. I think that it is in his head a little bit but for medvedev for me. He was the pick from the start. I think he's just got a little bit of a more of a chance to get into the final well. After five days of empty empty stadiums due to government restrictions. Melvin park has once again opened its gates to the public breathing life into the tournament and into the hearts of fans and players alike. How does it feel to be becky after five days of luck.

You've been doing all these things from these videos and these articles and these blogs and these forums and it's just not working. If you WANNA know why it's not working if you want to know why you're struggling on your journey to full time employment. If you WANNA know why you've learned so much but you've taken so little action episode one twenty five I break down exactly what's keeping most of us from actually actually building a transformational business a real estate machine. I'm GONNA say exactly what's holding you back and why it's not working and why you've been so focused on information and the transformation is on the other side of a key ingredient that there's an episode one twenty five guys so if you want a little bit of a taste of what I have in mind and and how in kind of how I have this idea to go solo and maybe even unscripted scripted this archive that I've presented to you guys today. We're Kinda. Give you a little bit of insight as to how it may just look in a few months so there's your tip of the week let's go ahead and get into the meat and potatoes of today's episode our conversation with Mr Michael Becker and now your feature presentation for for my career everything we're just going up. You couldn't make a bad loan and all of a sudden it worked until it didn't and then it didn't work at all that that was the exact opposite so it's probably a banker like you'll making loans for about three or four years before everything hit the fan and then for about a Tutu due to natural period of pretty much all I was problem workout smile is working for a regional bank my bank up up by Wells Fargo in two thousand eight and you know pretty much overnight. Everything switched stand that and then we just Kinda did problem workouts all these people that I was making loans to unheralded a big book of business to go in and try to figure out how to get all their money back ours ars most most of money back as we possibly could so I was Kinda the grim reaper there for a little while. I'm you know foreclosing kind of work in working these loans out and a okay. I think the last thing from my mind really during that time was you know hey I wanna go best and get into real estate. new rule kind of things that can kind of flip my switch was uh-huh you know two thousand and ten my mom passed away in so she was in her late fifties and kind of you know watching her dad can sacrifice their entire lights and save money and this literally means for hopes that once they hit retirement they go kind of enjoying travel onto what was stopped in. My mom died before she should go do that and that was that was one thing that kind of really impact impactful on me that can lead you know was pointed you. That kind of stuff is also important down some balance to be able to lead your life while you're young young and healthy because you never know what tomorrow has that was kind of something I hit me when I was in my early Thirties and then and then one of the other things will happen. I think it was in two thousand and two thousand ten or two two thousand two thousand ten tax return early two thousand eleven. I went to my tax returns and I it was a pretty well paid. Employees did pretty gets myself but I wanted to is on my returns and I couldn't even itemize tax returns. I have zero deductions W. Two employees eight putting money in a 401k and this kind of got pissed me off to be honest with you got upset said about that I kind of reflect back are looking a lot of our clients. I was loaned money to and they made all this money done right make millions of dollars and I'll go their tax returns. They all show like paper losses on the tax returns so paying little or no tax and I was kind of just kind of upset me in talking to my son. He's like there's nothing I can do for you. All you have is a w. two and a four one K. so you gotta ah either own a business owned real estate and that's kind of what really you know. Real estate seemed a little bit more attainable to be started reflecting kind of paying attention to what's going on in the world is looking at how much real estate is on sale. No Two thousand eleven everything started Katha unfreezing and coming back. That's when I went out and started about a three bed two thousand mosquito Texas for like seventy five eighty grand spent fifteen gram renovating it in the natural thing to Reynolds her eleven hundred bucks a month or something like that that's kind of how I got started starting at one bad while three basketball single family house in two thousand eleven and then you know kind of ended up doing sixteen rent houses one by one by one between twenty eleven twenty thirteen early twenty thirteen and cats that process realized that it was over scalable you know if I wanted to really do you know bigger and and better things you need to get larger properties and all the time I was doing that I was successful. Linney markets are coming back on late two thousand and can start alone in on a multi family projects a lot of the stuff that was kind of printed product to fix although the broken properties from the recession kind of build a program out for Wells Fargo wind up doing a ton of loans in this kind of realized that I you know I I knew a whole lot. I was only taking advantage of a little bit of it at that time. You could look oh you're talking about. When you say that what you're being taxes opposed to a real estate investor business owner would be would be taxed on that cross What would that look like yeah I I live in Texas like you do so we're fortunate to only have the federal income tax worry about so? If you live in someplace like Connecticut New York or California you gotTa State Income Tax on top of event but I believe I was I was somewhere in the twenty eight thirty tasks. executive was so not every dollar I was is I was grossing After you know you did a full day on Saturday sunshine. I was paying twenty eight percent hanging out thirty forty thousand bucks whatever it was on on one hundred two thousand dollars an income that I that I would make in kind of contrast fat now literally millions of dollars a year through through the benefit of depreciation in some of these recent tax law changes that you can even accelerated depreciation. I can basically make millions of dollars offset appreciation pay zero federal income tax legally just by doing some strategic planning and it's a really really safe for simple thing to do and it's all just do to kind of the benefit that you get up professional having God benefit of depreciation off settings foreign earned income that you might get when you when you first started having someone on Israel's believable was because Glendon industry and you started to see that they were investors that you were doing some of these again these secrets these are things that any me any secret will tell you it sounds like things started to click for you. Seeing all the benefits that you saw that for you was more tangible and again it can it can relate back to what was talk with mom your personal life at that time that was really easy to to start can answer the saying that enemy of enemy of grain is good. Did you know something like that. So you have a good life. Everything's going well and you make six figures have a 401k and you get your four five weeks of vacation that you can take a year and company. He called our company. expense account things like that. That's what a lot of what I had. A lot of temporaries had in the bank and sees in the banker. You kinda printed ended in certain level conservatism that is Kinda. Sometimes it's hard because when you go out Mak- making investment weather is a single family flip house or whatever whatever it is or a multi-million family property Never GonNa know everything you need to know right. You're always gonNA have some level of certainty when you go out there. Doing I'm doing transaction. That's kind of separate so a better investor. Some those are can take action from those. I can't is your ability to be able to understand doing up diligence. Look at the deal understand the risks and do the deal anyways writes. She's got Take enough steps in structured deal in a way that you mitigate as much as it's possible but you never can eliminate all risk getting one of these deals. A lot of people just simply can't get over that and take on power like a risk and then you know I'm quite friends. A lot of people are lazy too so you think they're second on that type of risk. anyways wasn't taken on different restaurants not really aware what they're doing so there there you got the risk of the stock stock market and all this stuff this outside of their control. They knew for much for less about now what I do about a three bed two bath house keep Texas because you know I grew up in area backdraft neighborhoods. I know where the employment is under the rent cops. Are I mean I can do basic math and I'm saying well you know incomes income man what my expenses are going to be on a monthly basis awesome have enough reserves offset anything unexpected that to me as far less risky than than stick money in a 401k and going into future with some indeterminate outcome of the stock market and indeterminate changes attacks on the future. That's to me that's crazy rescue. You're having all your income beans are single source source being your employer that can only simply lay you off in a bad economy which I was fortunate enough to survive two rats major recessions bunch of Laos implores the last one in a tech crunch I was working at IBM that will not happen animates to four or five rounds of layoffs back when I was in my twenties and so just to me it seems crazy to put eggs in one basket. You're a single source. Income at your employer can fire you. Basically you have no control your destiny but I don't think people people perceive it that way they perceive what do what you do is risky because you have to borrow money and you know be entrepreneurial and you don't have to have you company health insurance France anymore. You know stuff like that like how do you. How do you health insurance? You simply go out and buy you know what you do. am I people just can't get over those little simple things and they perceive risk the wrong fashion the other people. I think a lot of people will just Kinda lazy a lot of people.

"A rocket fired here. The US embassy in Baghdad inside the heavily fortified green zone. The rocket was fired just days after the State Department, ordered a partial evacuation of the embassy and consulate in repeal of non-essential staff, and now your host jordansekulow. Welcome back to Jay seculow life, second half hour coming up later, the broadcast, we are going to get into this piece, played big offered, we may have to spend some time tomorrow as well. Because there's a lot of interested, what is happy with Iran, and we're not just breathe this up to bring it up. There was another incident. Yes. Last night in Iraq, where a Hezbollah back group that she, it's they can locate they know exactly where the rockets fired from. They know it's a Shia neighborhood. They know Hezbollah is activated there. And so it's a rocket it gets fired inside the green zone, this aroused, the US embassy at our assets in Baghdad. It lands a mile away for the US embassy. So all bake, sits about why these not essential staff was sit out of Iraq for the US State Department that starts to make sense of the threat that Iraq supposed to this provocation by Iran. And I think what they don't realize they're not dealing with President Obama warp. So you keep provoking, you keep provoking you tack oil ships attack used roads from Hootie rebels also Roddy at back. To attack oil lives. The desert using drugs military drugs, Utech, the vessels, your rhetoric goes up, yet you're kind of forgetting your rod. What you've got city, your backyard, which is the USS Abraham leak, it entire strike team at more vessels on the way be fifty two bothers patriot missile systems that a patriot missile system. It systems being put in place and not a lot of friends, but let's be honest with Iran. It's not like the Gulf states of their friends. They do not have a lot of friends of the world they don't have a lot of real allies at the world and they don't have their people to rely on either. They have the revolutionary guard. Ed, the religious leadership in Iran. So they've the political class, which is head selected by the religious leadership. Ed, the small part of their military, which actually is well funded and would be responsible. Idi Katha, conflict, really with the US, both of their military would walk right off, like skip, walk back through that, again that idea that. That if it did get into this conflict, so you really believe that the conflict is between the US in the Iraqi, revolutionary guard was stabbed classified as a terrorist organization, and that the uniform erotic military unrelated to the revolutionary guard would not have to see if we could make it clear to them would not have to get into a conflict with the US effect could help rebuild Iraq. Yeah, I think what we need to look at. This is very similar to what Hitler had to do. He had to have a regular army, but then he had his own SS and groups like that to keep the regime in power. The same thing has happened in Iran. It's the Revolutionary Guards which are the ones who keep the regime in power, the army as a force, regular army is a forest that's made up of draftees, many of whom are a political they're not interested in this, they wanna do their time, get out the typical thing like that, if we were to go in, in a way and make it clear to the army that we were not going to be going after them unless they responded to us. And we were going after the powers that be. There's a very high likelihood in my view. And I've read it among others who think that the army might sit the war out. In fact, might even side with us against the regime, so that the regime would be tossed out, and they would have an opportunity to put in a government. That's more support by the people. Let's go to Nancy in New York online, five he'd been hold on dates before we get to expert. You're on the air. Sure. That the American people wake up because. What's happening in this country and around the world, just didn't happen in two or three years? Been implemented in the past sixty years. Yes. And for us to.

Saudis blame Iran for drone attack amid calls for US strikes
"Though. We'd been worried about Iranian provocations for weeks. You never know where the strike is coming for ships, targeted near the strategic Emirati port of food our food, Jiwa rall in which the described as a sabotage attack. One of the ships was flying a flag another Norwegian flag. This attack is part of the complication of the Gulf, because there is an ongoing feud between the UAE and Saudi Arabia on one side, and Katha Amman Kuwait on another side. This is the Gulf Cooperation Council. There's also an ongoing war between Saudi Arabia and the element in Yemen, the who phase who are allied with Tyra, so. An attack at the UAE has everybody looking around and saying who did it. And why? And how do they gain from this? It's a mystery that begins immediately within these last hours. We have the crown prince of Saudi Arabia on a tweet and through a newspaper. That's published in English not only blaming Iran for these attacks. But. Recommending guiding the US just surgical strikes on the Iranians in answer to the attacks on these four tankers. We welcome ambassador Barbara leaf. Bob relief was the US ambassador to the United Arab Emirates during the Obama administration and early in the Trump administration. She's a senior fellow at the Washington Institute, Madame Basseterre very good evening to you. When you heard the news about the attack on the tankers, what was your first thought surprised? Did you look to Tehran? Did you say this could get worse? Good evening to. Well, you know, frankly I wasn't entirely surprised. It's the sort of thinly disguised, the Niable kind of, at that the Iranians have gotten quite good at now that said it didn't come, right? Out of the blue did it because you had as a backdrop study esscalation of tensions between Washington Washington and Tehran. Of course, the, the big backdrop is, is the decision by the one year anniversary recently of the decision by President Trump to withdraw the US from the Iranian nuclear accord, and enter exert a campaign about pressure economic pressure largely, so there have been some straws in the wind, but I think the most important thing to look at for the moment is the announcement on the fifth, but the national security adviser John Bolton that the US had decided to accelerate deployment of, of. Carrier strike group, that was already in route to the goal against of US detecting certain threat streams. And so with a very stiff warning from the national security adviser that the US would use relentless force studying attacks on the US interests or those of its allies. I think it's a little bit predictable that you would then see Iran do something that was denial. But just their reports of fighting in who died the as the who the's and Saudi forces both broke the cease fire. That was that followed an announcement that these going to withdraw the troops from that. So what is what, what account for the resumption of the hostilities and is the reached in Stockholm in danger of completely collapsing? Well, I think there's, there's real. Strain. There's real pressure on the agreement and the agreement was really just showing some attraction with the beginnings of the redeployment out of a data in two other small ports, but you have to recall that on, that we had the, the, the sabotage attacks so mysterious, bombings of four tankers off of gera- on Sunday, the twelve and then the next day, several drone attacks of on armed return attacks against a Saudi east west of oil pipeline, which likes the pipeline that runs from different era is a way for the Emirati the Saudis to export oral without going through the strait of our moods. So stations were bombed, the who in fact, took took responsibility. Responsibility for these attacks and the coalition then retaliated yesterday. So I think there will be in fact, some very significant strain on this on this agreement. But, you know, the Hootie really had no cause to do what they did Madame or is it? Is it possible that the Iranians believe they're about to be attacked? Is that what's going on here? Do they believe that the US is going to use our strength to crush them? I do not accept that I think the Iranians are shuffling. A lot of assets around an have been prepatory step possibly. But I don't believe I don't believe Tehran. Thanks. It was about to be attacked by this carrier group, coming to the Gulf after all, we have traditionally had a carrier group in the Gulf. We've, we've several administrations now have have strived to keep a carrier present in the goal and there are casually, gaps in that coverage. But I don't think they looked at this as an imminent attack. I, I tend to think frankly that it was a test. It was a test of the proposition that we would indeed meaningfully extend such a security on wlov. Over of loosely define. And allies in their interests and see what we would do if if they wept some. So they denied it. They were the first to report on it. In fact, and expressed shock and indignation at these mysterious attacks. There are suggestions, and people who try to says that the Saudis, you a coalition have reason to feed the crisis and against the US to ramp up tensions with Iran. They're being hit from various sides, and see the danger in the streets of her Moos. What do you think? Do you trust that the, the non US intelligence on? This conflict is scribe responsibility to Iran, which is certainly capable of doing all of these things is this tied to the arrival of the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN. So I the attacks are tied but I think it's more. They are tied to the to the bay fifth announce mentor. That makes warning by the White House about any any move to attack you interest or those of an out of allies, but I don't you know, look, I haven't seen the intelligence, but having worked in government quite recently and seeing this kind of thread intelligence for years. I don't have any reason to think at suspect the problem with intelligence of courses. It's a piece of a larger puzzle that you are trying to put together and trying to divine intent on the part of your adversary. It's very, it's very tough, tough enterprise,

Let me think let me see I might not can't say this idea 'cause we record a television show. And I get the radio show going is like twelve million people. Don't don't see I might not. Can you say the idea out loud? Just let yet. But let me let me see this this. Let me see this exists. This exists. Then not talk about it. This thing. No, it does not exist. Whoa. Not exists.

Talking about these crazy pitches. Oh, my God, it doesn't exist. So let me do some research that might have a big surprise to be out tomorrow. I have a big surprise tomorrow. So let me do some research to find out if this exists and find out this exists. So. Give me your stocks that you think is a good stock to invest in. Now as we talked about this bad hours a month thing, right? Early on in the show. All y'all was giving me was marijuana stocks. So if all you giving me marijuana size. Don't you think maybe we should only marijuana farm? Right. So give me the stocks again that you like give me the stocks that you really like, I know somebody gave me, but was MC L NCO immediate steps that you really like. And I'm gonna say the stocks again have people look at them them do some research. See if they wanna buy now, one of the things that I'm material you you need to be looking at right now. Is crypto currency again. In the reason you need to be looking at it again is because of what happened. The other day you had Facebook by coin based app a one billion dollars. Facebook Mark Zuckerberg would not purchase a coin base app. If he didn't think he was gonna make five billion off of the one billion dollar purchase that makes sense to do it which tells me that something is going on in the crypto industry this about the bus wide open. Now, one of the things that I said was look. I think that North Korea and China is going to be behind this. Because the only problem that North Korea has is they have no money. This is the easiest way for them to get money. Crypto currencies and if China opens cryptocurrency back up in Asia and Japan joins in in Russia joins the and if North Korea can Gideon low right now it will literally literally shoot through the roof rate. That's a great point word Katha said we need the back Facebook stock as well, you're right. Because if this bitcoin jumps Facebook is going jump. You're absolutely right. So we need to start looking at that. And thinking about that again, because it's no way. Zuber is going to spend a billion dollars. No way, he spins a billion dollars. If he's not gonna make five billion offered. No way in the world. So that tells me right there you need to keep an eye on what's going on. And see part of the reason I'm telling you need to keep an eye on what's going on is because some other things to taking place in that crypto sector where they're creating literally like banks where you can't you can't buy the Bank, but you can buy and sell your coins through the bay. So. The stocks that I mentioned originally Rodney were. G in g G L in NH GOP H MC MCI g. And Tuesday t u e s. We come back a McGee some more stocks.

"Herndon Virginia. Hey, Omar, what's on your mind today? Taking my call before I get to my topic. Mentioning that either Peter Paul Katha one of the Roman soldiers here in DC tended to their OMON soldier, Peter, Peter cutoff, and Jesus healed it back up. Okay. So I'm trying to get to that. Because you know, they believe in Jesus. It's a very confident person. He he here to people who are in pain hurt. I don't understand why Donald Trump who who basically doing the opposite. Yeah. They don't believe in Jesus, Omar, they they they believe in the in the God of the Old Testament in vengeance in wrath filled. God there are little flickers of that through the New Testament that that most biblical scholars believe were added long after Jesus was dead. But those are the flickers. I mean, you know, it's just they're not they're not really. Yeah. Talk about this new attorney general become another puppet. When I'm when I think. That I think that would be good for us at the power of the ballot box because you would have legitimate. Look any also be very powerful, and he's been damaged Republican in the long term. You know, my expectation for the Democrats to focus on kitchen table issues. You know, so we can before the heat with twenty twenty. Trump try to run twenty twenty the about box is going to be powerful. And he's gonna do at grave damage to the Republican party. Thank you. You know, I think you're right. And and it and it causes me to raise another question, which I'll I'll repeat after the break is over in. That is you know, Mitch McConnell right now is is willing to ride this this Trump shutdown train as long as is necessary. Mitch McConnell could end the shutdown literally in ten minutes. Well, maybe it takes thirty. But you know, e could he ended within an hour. All he'd have to do is call a vote. Let's have a vote on the legislation that we passed in the Senate on December nineteenth needs to be revoted. Because we've got a new Senate. It's a whole new congress every two years it reboots, and so all the legislation that that didn't get passed last time has to be brought forward all over again for a vote. But let's have a vote on that piece of legislation that the Senate pass back in December the house just passed it intact. Not a word changed. So all the Senate has to do is hold a vote on it and McConnell Mitchell. Turtle is refusing to do that. So why? This is the question why what is McConnell afraid of? He clearly he clearly doesn't want to challenge Trump. But is it that he's afraid of Trump is it that he's afraid that the Chinese interests that have apparently gotten to him through his wife's business, Mike come out is it that his complicity in in in in Russian and other foreign involvement in our elections. Mitch McConnell took several million dollars from from a Russian oligarch affiliated the fellow some during the campaign is it that that's gonna come out. I mean, what is it that you know, what personal interests of Mitch McConnell's is he hiding is he burying by protecting Donald.

And there's a package waiting for them. That is going to turn out to be the komento spa body of. Rachel summers of mother Ghani. But meanwhile, indicastors apocalypse everything is orgies and Louis the fourteenth decadence, and we see the current version of apocalypse because remember apocalypse has been changing bodies quite frequently at this point. Is this withered old man in this wonderful futuristic, apocalypse tech, Mexico surrounding music sort of sitting in the chest. And there are these traditional like early X-factor era, apocalypse heads just sort of hovering to either side in front of him at this point apocalypse isn't even trying to pretend that that's his real body because he real so much power. He doesn't need to. Also, wielding more and more power is a very young strife who is quickly growing up into an absolute terror. We meet him for the first time immediately after he has incinerated his latest tutor and strife is being being raised by severity. This is the the product we met initially from whom Scott Jean-Ann, Rachel and Nathan fled and severe has taken on raising this terrible child, basically as penance for letting letting that group of Scott escape. And we find out here that strife is straight up being groomed. As a new body for apocalypse, and this includes apocalypse, accelerating development of strifes mutant powers that brings us a further three years into this future with the adventures of cyclops and Phoenix number three through the years. This issue has the same creative team. But our inking Katha Mari has this time brought in additional additional to ally.

"I feel like things in your backlog should be things actively want to play or keep playing. So if you don't feel bioshock or code or or you know any open world game for me than I wouldn't say that's on your backlog because you're never ever going to go back to it. Probably. Gun show. This is earned Weber. I run the sonic the hedgehog Twitter account and the game. I'm most embarrassed to have never played, but then I own have owned for while is actually the Witcher three wild hunt. And the reason this is most embarrassing for me is because I own the entire which your series but have only ever played the very first game for about twelve to sixteen hours and foolishly trying to push myself to go through the series in order one game at a time, but CD project red, please don't hate me. I've been playing a lot of Nino Kuni to recently which is really good and have at least seven other games in the backlog right now, but I'm trying to get through as well. So, but of all the games that I haven't played that I'm really looking forward to, which are three is the one that I'm very excited to play. Hopefully in the near future. Thanks, hey, what's up? Polygon it's teddy, I'm an indie game maker. I worked on hyper. Light drifter before that I was designer at Disney and Microsoft, and after I was directing for square inex- for a bit. But now I'm India. Again, I'm based in LA where I co-founded indie collective glitch city. But I've been in east and southeast Asia for the last few months talking developers here and working on my new stuff. Anyway, the game is still haven't played is ho ho, Kim. It was PS three PS four in Vida is made by Honey slug and Richard Hogg and it's like this super chill game where you control this guy, snake thing kind of feels like your height and your flying around in these really wims e world's cute characters. And it just feels so wholesome and beautiful and relaxing. And the last couple years have been kinda shitty for the whole world. So it just seems like the sort of thing we should be playing more of these related. Nice, relaxing, vibes, local Roco, ash Katha. Mari ish and most notably they have soundtrack that it was a collaboration with. Record label called ghostly who represent artists in the soundtrack like Tyco. She gets come True's and that's just not done that often. It's a really nontraditional type of Sandra that I'm super into. And I got a couple of that game, but I just haven't. And I think it's because it's just to chill. Like there's nothing that I need to play in it. There's nothing no secret or drama or something. And it has a problem that a lot of really unique games have, which is it's not more of something I already love like a camp, finish one game and be like, oh, you know, it's exactly like this game JoJo calm. I gotta go play hokum. So it's kind of hard to find a bridge into like, this is the week where I'm going to really get into hokum also it was only Vida and I never really got into Vida anyway, I should play it us probably play it. It's steadied eve by pay polygon show. This is Allston Walker from way point. And I'm here to admit that probably the biggest game in my pile of shame is final, fantasy, twelve. It's a game that I know I would love it has such a unique setting and so many interesting characters and I, I know that it Dell's into all of the weird political BS that I am entirely here for with a billion different factions and species, and races and backstabbing at high fantasy, but also kind of gritty and places is one hundred percent. My shit. And yet I've put all of a few hours into it from from its rerelease last year when it first came out in two thousand six to seven thousand six. It came out just after my PS two broke and I was in college at the time and that meant that I was not able to get my PS two. Six because I was baroque. And so I spent like years tally myself that one day they would re release file a fancy, twelve. Finally able to go back and play it and they did..
