Not One of Us Is God
"To talk about what Steve just said, 'cause I don't think enough Americans understand what America is about. We can talk about voting schemes and policy shit and all of us. We want all we want. I don't think most Americans understand what America is about. And Steve actually just touched on it. And the key thing is that America is founded on a single important key principle is that not one of us is God. Yes. That's the key principle of this country. So what that means, if we're not God, true authority lies in God, whether you believe in God or not, you think it is a simpler as a literal thing, doesn't matter. True authority lies in God, you're not God, therefore you don't have any true authority over any other man. And now we have our anarchist friend like nodding along, of course. Therefore, what are we going to do? We're going to set up a system where we lend political authority with restrictions with time limits with all kinds of balanced divided powers so that they can't run amok. So that we don't become an empire because we're not God.
Is Political Gridlock Good for Crypto?
"One of the big bits of news in the political world this week has been the absolute dogfight for the Republican speaker vote in the House. If you're not in the United States, the TLDR is that Republicans took back the house, AKA Congress and last fall's midterm elections. As one of their first orders of duty, they need to elect a speaker to lead them, and this is not gone so well. We are now four days and 12 ballots into the process. Throughout that, Republican Kevin McCarthy has failed to gain the majority required to be seated as House speaker, holding up the swearing in of hundreds of new members and delaying any legislative work. Despite holding a majority in the House, Republicans have been stymied by a group of hard right members of the ultra conservative freedom caucus who defected from their party to endorse several alternative candidates. Now, obviously the ins and outs and rights and wrongs of this are way, way beyond the scope of this show. But the key thing for us to know is that only 15 times since the inaugural Congress in 1789 did House speaker require more than one round of voting to be elected. The last time this occurred was exactly 100 years ago in 1923, when 9 rounds of voting were required to elect a speaker. Again, without a speaker, nothing in the House can move forward, including committee appointments. Hearings are the adopting of new rules for how the chamber will operate. Because of that, this does impact crypto. In December, the House financial services committee convened a hearing to investigate the collapse of FTX. That committee is also responsible for economic stability issues and financial system oversight, as well as being the main body which proposes and refines draft bills related to its policy area. Without a House speaker, no appointments to the committee can be ratified and important legislation around financial services, including crypto policy can not progress. Before Congress concluded last year, there were a number of crypto bills which were being considered with great urgency, a law regulating stablecoins had reached an impasse, but the matter was considered to have serious importance and time pressure. More broad regulatory bills like the lummis gillibrand sponsored responsible financial innovation act and the state now boozman sponsored digital commodities consumer protection act had been proposed in the Senate but would also need to pass in the House as well. So what does this all portend for legislation to come? I don't think it's unreasonable to think that if Republicans who hold the balance of power in the House can't even come together on an agreement on appointing a speaker, there is a serious possibility of pretty substantial gridlock in Congress in general. For the crypto industry, there may be an element that no news is good news here. Without a functional legislative body to enact new regulation, the industry could continue to grow without additional government oversight and restriction.
Dr. Andrew G. Huff Discusses the Wuhan Institute of Virology
"So doctor Hough, is this the work that the eco health alliance was doing at the Wuhan institute of virology? Absolutely. And they started doing it in 2012 or 2013 and actually before I started working at equal health alliance. I reviewed the gain of function proposal to understanding the risk of bat coronavirus emergence, which was funded by doctor Anthony Fauci that the National Institute of health, the national institute for allergy and infectious disease, naive. And it was clear as data. I actually released the document or all my documents on Twitter today, AG, HUS, AG huff on Twitter, and your audience, your selfie can go download and look at those. And it is clear as day that this gain of function work happened at the alliance that doctor Anthony Fauci and other people at NIH lied about it when they testified. And unfortunately, what's happened is that the strategy or tactic used by either the intelligence community or all the COVID co-conspirators is that they've tried to make this a big debate about virology. And it's not. This is actually a criminal epidemiological investigation. That's what the FBI would call it. I'm trained as an investigator by the FBI in this really niche subspecialty. And the more that they can make this complicated and difficult to understand, the more that people glaze over and it creates uncertainty about what the source of this virus really was. And one of the key things that I do in my book and I got a copy of it right here is that I discuss in layman's terms what happened. So after I read Robert Kennedy's book, and it's an excellent book, I realized that a lot of this is just too technical and deep. And you have to be older and more mature to understand the complexity of the relationships of all these different people. The government agencies and he doesn't phenomenal job of laying that all out. I wanted to take the information that I had in my experience and make a digestible so that a high school student could understand what happened.
Charles Thorngren and Eric Are Weary of Crypto for a Reason
"Don't smell right to me. And digital currency, crypto stuff. I've always said, this is like as far from the gold standard as you could possibly go. I don't trust it. So I actually get to discuss this with somebody who knows a little bit about this. One of our sponsors is legacy precious metals and the CEO Charles thorn grin is my guest. Charles, welcome back. Thank you, Eric glad to be back. I just have to say, honestly, this, let's talk a little bit about this FTX crisis. We don't have a lot of time, but crypto, it's looking very, very bad for crypto. Part of me is glad because I've just never trusted it. What is your feeling about what's going on right now? You say something that's really important. And you've never trusted it. And most people have it, most people don't understand it. And that's one of the key things. You know, crypto itself, the platforms, or magnificent. The way they use them the way they use contracts and the way information is transferred back and forth. It's a beautiful technology. But not every technology is an investment. That's the thing. You have these platforms, right? And this new technology that very few people understand. And those that do, they're in their 30s. But here, like with FTX, the problem is, just because you can write a sequence of code, doesn't mean that your chief financial officer doesn't mean that you're a chief operating officer. So that's where the problem comes in. You have brilliant people with great tech, but they're not businessmen. They
Don Lemon's Quest for Clicks
"When you set up the interview with CNN, did they tell you because it was a disaster, it was a complete meltdown by Don. I've been on the receiving end of that before. Where he gets spun up in wanting an answer and thinks it's a drama and needs a viral moment and wants to get ratings. What was the setup? Did they tell you that that's what it was going to be? And you said, yes, or were you surprised by Don lemons approach to you? No, you know, as you know, their producers call you the night before and kind of talk about your take on whatever it is that you want to talk about. So the producer was very nice and probably haven't said, yeah, we're going to talk about Trump's dinner at Mar-a-Lago and it's fine. I gave him two cents about it. I asked him, you know, is there any other topic there? I should plan on covering and he basically said no, that's what we're going to talk about. So I knew I was walking in. Into a topic that was hot. And. It was professional. I didn't get my too well. Okay, that's the key thing. What would professionalism in that situation look like to lend cortisol, who's an advertising executive and a veteran of the State Department? Well, the very basic part of that formula is allowing your guests to finish your answer. I spent about ten minutes trying to finish a single thought because Donald lemon, which is jumped in and imposed his rules on what it is and what it is that I couldn't say. And second, I started answering some things that he wasn't expecting, then he would interrupt me and try and impose his answer on it.
"key things" Discussed on The Cryptoshow - blockchain, cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and decentralization simply explained
"So that's something you have to be very careful about. But anything that has use case on the blockchain, be it on the text, liquidity mining, any kind of vault, any kind of loan structure, loan system, I think that is something that's really, really important and I made a couple of videos made a couple of posts on how I am currently getting ten to 20% on Bitcoin on a serum and unstable coins without giving away my private keys. So I really kind of encourage you to take a look there. That's a very, very important kind of part kind of understand. And yeah, if I look at those three kind of things, right? And all of them, let's say, get our finished by Q one, then we have a really, really, really solid kind of system to work with and to play with. And I think a couple of things then afterwards, you look at, right? So obviously we're looking at the next upgrade, different meta chain, and then really focusing on fees. Making sure that there's an actual use case, actually incentive in there, which we have, but really kind of focus on that. Then, yeah, I think strengthening that test environment, strengthening, the decentralization, for example, having two coat bases for the notes, right? So that's going to be an important one. Cleaning everything up, doing a lot of extra testing, really making everything way more robust. So I think that's going to be an absolute key kind of aspect and key kind of concept. And so yeah, that's definitely something that I would really hope that afterwards, we should really kind of, yeah, we should really kind of focus on. Wolfgang on Twitter commented with that it would be, it would be really good to have faster block times. I mean, that's something that's going to be quite an impactful change to the consensus. But I actually would agree. I think it would make a lot of sense to have block times block times of a couple of seconds. Because then you have way faster communication there. One thing could also be to kind of look at the staking consensus, go in a similar route, what Ethereum has. So this would obviously be something that could be quite interesting, but these are all things that we as a community should approach very carefully and step by step with a lot of testings. I would love to see a very robust kind of really love to see a very robust kind of testing environment for that. And I think we have a really good chance there next year.
"key things" Discussed on The Cryptoshow - blockchain, cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and decentralization simply explained
"Let's get going. Welcome to today's update. I hope everyone is doing well, having a fantastic Monday, I want to do the top three things that I am personally watching in the defect chain ecosystem right now. I'm going to keep this Twitter space but shorter, keep the YouTube video a bit shorter to that. So that I can really dive in, keep this a bit of a summary and yeah, I think use it as that. So let's dive right in. Number one of the things that I'm watching is obviously the upcoming hard fork. Grand Central, it's version three, you can follow that if you go on DeFi scan dot live slash block slash countdown slash Grand Central. I'll link this up below. And the hard fork is supposed to happen on the 8th, so that's in three days, depending on when you're watching this or when you're listening to the podcast or to the Twitter space. The key thing, why this is so important is first, it sets the stage for the liquidity bridge. So that liquidity can move in and out without any company, it can simply happen on a bridge. And this is going to provide a lot a lot, a lot of possibilities for liquidity. I think if you compare a lot of other blockchains to DeFi chain, then this has always helped greatly with TVL and flexibility and speed. And a lot of people always say that arbitraging or the speed to go in and out always takes a long time, and this it should be pretty much instant. So that's going to set that stage. Once the first bridge is going to be live, it's probably not going to happen before Christmas. I'm not expecting that. I would rather expect that this will happen after Christmas, but that's going to set a major major stage. And then the other part with that is obviously the unchanged governance where all the voting on the massive notes can happen on chain. This is extremely important for decentralization for speed, for consensus, also it's going to remove the importance of the ticket council and probably at some point it can actually remove to take accounts as a whole. So that's exactly the right direction with all of that. Again, devoting other upgrade on that is going to happen on Thursday, December 8th. The first unchain voting is going to happen in January and then it's going to be completely automated. So that's going to be a very, very, very important part. So that's the first thing that I'm watching. It's going to increase utility. I think that's absolutely massive. The second thing is if I meta chain. DeFi meta chain testnet should be coming out soon. Hashtag soon. That's going to be the EVM layer on top of that Bitcoin layer that we see right now. And that at the end allows for DeFi and web three as a gateway into Bitcoin and this area. And then with that, we're going to see a lot of strong use cases.
Republicans Find Their Way Through Tough Conversations
"More to glory, America, bonjour, high candidate who you're alive inside the beltway on this Thursday I'll be on special report tonight on the panel with Brett bear talking about the house finally being called for the Republicans. Mitch McConnell being returned to lead the GOP Senate. One of his colleagues, Jim Langford, just won a thunderous reelection for another 6 years. I'm not sure if at the sentence or a big win. I know you want to serve the people of Oklahoma. Welcome back, senator lankford. How are you? I'm doing very well. Good morning. Yeah, by the way, it's a bit of a boat. It's a victory and a sentence as well. So I'm very glad for you. I was at a national Republican senatorial committee event, probably a year and a half ago with you and your wonderful wife and with Rick Scott and everyone. You know, Republican senators may have disagreements. But they actually, they don't have fisticuffs. I tried to explain that in the first hour I'd like you to expand on that. Any partnership. And I've run two law firms with more than 20 partners. And they disagree. And then they get that they have a vote in the end. You go along with what the vote is. Is that the way the Senate Republican caucus will work? That is the way that it works actually. There's always frustration. We obviously underperform what we thought we would during the elections last week. So there's a need for a very serious conversation about where we're going. How we communicating the issues, what are the key things that we're actually trying to be able to promote and put out there. Those are hard conversations that need to have and we spent hours Monday and Tuesday going through some very Frank conversations on that as we should.

"Good morning everyone, Julian here. I was supposed to make that video yesterday Monday, but was so packed and busy so I thought early morning they Tuesday, I'm gonna shoot out my 7 things. I will be watching this week. If I look up at tired or if I look a bit, it's early, it is, was up at 5 a.m. here long day and I got a lot of stuff going on. So really quick, I want to shoot this out. So the 7 things it's all started today Tuesday, midterm elections. I'm expecting a Republican wave in all of this. What is this going to mean? It's going to mean probably a more bullish kind of rest of the year. Until the end of the year and then a bit of a deadlock next year. So a bit of a harder kind of scenario. So that's going to be key. The entire week is going to be around a second topic, which is obviously binance, CC versus FDX, SPF, and made a separate video on this yesterday. Take a look. I'm not sure if the tensions are going to get east here. I saw a lot of people trying to step in trying to ease all this a bit. Let's see if egos are going to go out of the way and if at the end we're going to see a happy ending to all that. Number three, Thursday, we do have CPI numbers. They are expected to come in at around 8%. I would personally not be surprised if we see lower numbers than expected. Maybe in the 7s, doesn't mean 7 it just means 7 point something. And at the end, that just shows that the prices are coming down, which doesn't make sense. And yeah, maybe we're going to see a more dovish kind of reaction to the fed in December. Number four is the firing at manner. We have heard they want to fire in the first time in a company history. It's the first time now that one of those large tech companies aside of Twitter, let's really talk about the top four top 5 here. The amazons, the apples and googles, the Microsoft meta, that these companies fire in the larger scale, rumor has it, 10% of the people are going to get fired. That's bonkers, if you think about it, it's going to be a lot of tech talent out in the open market. I just want to say weird KT 5 are hiring. So if you're looking for a new home, here in Singapore, go to cake if you had a comment slash jobs. Number 5 is a different train update. Testnet version three is coming out this week. I made a long video on DeFi chain current state possibilities, opportunities, the road ahead yesterday. Take a look there, I think it's super, super, super exciting. Very much looking forward to the entire process that we're seeing. Number 6, on cake DeFi, our company, we're soon hitting 10,000 staked, eth, that's also super exciting, so thank you so much to all of you who are taking control of your own financial destiny. Staking your eth getting cash flow on your ease, that was also this interesting blog article around how much money Michael saylor would have made had he put his money to ease and I think he would be making more money per year in staking income than the entire company is making on operational income. Absolutely crazy to kind of conceive this. So thanks so much for your trust and support and this week on defense. Staked eth was okay. State east was launched and from next week on you're going to be able to if you want to. And number 7, we are having an 1111 marketing campaign on Friday on take DeFi. So if you want to check this out, be sure to give a KYC to count on cake. It's going to be quite exciting, quite cool. As a whole, I'm expecting a lot of volatility this week with the midterms with inflation numbers with SPF versus CC, we at cake divide are navigating the storm as always read the transparency report from Q three, quite exciting. And with that, see you next time, thanks so much for being part of this. All the best. Bye bye. Unfortunately, we are already at the end of today's episode. If you find the crypto show helpful and would like to continue being a part of it. Don't forget to subscribe so you are notified when we have the next episode out. If you want to do me a huge favor, please leave a review. It literally only takes a few seconds, but it.
How Harry Mack Got the Confidence to Rap
"How do you create confidence when doing yourself to do something that maybe you weren't supposed to be doing freestyle rapping, right? And to do this in public for strangers a lot. Like how do you get the confidence, which I think is one of the key things that a lot of people are missing in life in general. Yeah. On how to have confidence to ask someone out on a date or to go for the career they want, but public speaking was the biggest fear for me growing up. And you kind of have to do this to express your talent. How did you learn how to overcome the fear of humiliation, embarrassment, looking silly messing up and gain that confidence? Man, that's a great question. I think one of the most important things for me is confidence comes through experience. And I'm lucky in that I've been performing since I was a little kid. I start my first instrument was the violin. I started playing when I was 7 years old. And I always remember my first violin recital. And the reason I'll always remember it is because I didn't play because instead I just cried. Oh my entire time. Because I was so scared. How many people were there? Oh, all the parents and some grandparents and aunts and uncles in 50 or a hundred people. Yeah, 50 hours in a school recital, was it? It was this place called the community music center in Portland where I'm from. So that's where I took violin lessons and so the teacher would put on a recital for all the students. And the first time you didn't play anything, you just stood there and cried. That was my first public performance opportunity. I cried the whole time. I didn't even actually make it onto the stage. I just sat with my parents and cried. And the teacher kind of looked over and was like, it's not gonna happen right in my parents like, yeah, it's probably not gonna happen. This guy won't stop crying. So I say that just to say that I wasn't some kind of born performer. The confidence that I have now wasn't gifted to me at birth by a long shot. It's something that I've worked through over time and something that I still actually have to a large degree when I perform today, I still get nervous before I go out on stage. Oh, definitely.
Evan Fritsch: What Did Ashley Biden’s 'Stolen' Diary Say?
"So tell us, is the diary legitimate, and if so, what are the contents of the diary that our audience should be made aware of? So Charlie, we at national file broke this Ashley Biden diary in October 24th of 2020 ahead of the election about ten days ahead of the November 3rd election, which was stolen from president Trump. There are a lot of naysayers out there saying it's not legit. I believe very obviously a year later, November 10 or 11 of 2021 when the feds raided mister O'Keefe's apartment and a couple of his staffers. They proved that the diary was legit right there, right? I think a lot of people sort of recognize that. And then it quieted down for a couple of months. And The New York Times, the busy bees, got to work, trying to spin this thing in the direction of, oh, it's all about, you know, how the diary was obtained. Well, if the thing is that it's important is how the diary was obtained, then obviously the diary is legit, it's bona FIDE. It's proven the provenance is fact. It is actually Biden's. Well, there's a New York Times article in march of this year 2020 in the lead up to this most recent court case that happened this plea deal, which was worked out in the southern district of New York. Where The New York Times describes for the southern district, just go on and on and on. Admitting that the diary is real. We can get into that a little bit more later. I think the key thing here, Charlie, is the diary is legit. There's no debating that fact anymore. And in this diary, this is kind of uncomfortable to discuss for some of the viewers. We have in Ashley Biden's handwriting accusations against her father of molestation. At his hands when she was 8,
Allum Bokhari of Breitbart News on the FBI Raid of 'Smoke and Mirrors'
"Do you see anything in this article whatsoever? That would call for in this affidavit whatsoever that would call for an immediate raid on the president of the United States home. Former president, the chief leader of the opposition, why would they take something like this, which is obviously a record keeping issue and then raise it to the level of the president needs to be rated. The opposition leader needs to be rated. Yeah, well, I haven't read the affidavit yet, but just from seeing the rate play out and then here in the details later about how this was all about, as you said, record key thing. It's clearly it's clearly smoke and mirrors, the FBI clearly has it in for Trump and we see that with what they did with the Hunter Biden laptop story as well. Pressuring Facebook to suppress that. You know, we saw this with Roger Stone as well, you know, the dawn raid on Roger Stone's residence wave where a few years ago, the world was like a process process issue. So they find it's like showing me the man send me the crime, right? They try to find anything they can and then absolutely throw the book at Trump, like on the tiniest thing you could possibly imagine. So, you know, obviously this is not going to happen to whether we're going to be now dawn raids on the bidens residents no matter how much evidence there is of wrongdoing, there's going to be no dawn raids on on any Democrats who's in with the establishment with the deep state.
Alfredo Ortiz: Legal Challenges to Biden's Student Loan Bailout
"Alfredo, I'm reading about this is pretty exciting. You guys are exploring legal challenges. Maybe some legal options to block this unconstitutional bailout from occurring. Good morning, Mike, and as always, thank you very much for having me. And yes, we are, Mike, because look, this kind of overreach is literally now the modus operandi, the standard operating procedure for this Biden administration. They can't get things necessarily through and unfortunately the things that they are getting through are going to kill America like this ridiculous $780 billion bill that was just passed, but this is clearly clearly unconstitutional. It's clear executive overreach. And it's very similar to what happened on the moratorium. And frankly, the key thing here is going to be the EPA versus West Virginia or West Virginia versus EPA, I should say. That's going to be a critical case that's going to play into here. The bottom line, bottom line here, Mike. Joe Biden doesn't have the legal authority to just single handedly wholesale cancellation of federal student loans and debt. By executive fee, there's a couple of acts that he's going to completely basically, he already ignored here. It's called the higher education act and the federal claims collection act. And it's clear that there are strict limits in terms of what it can and can't do what the president can and can't do here. And so at best Mike at best, what he could possibly do is to either delay the debt or the interest rate, but wholesale cancellation of the debt is clearly outside of outside of the scope.
The Trump Diplomacy
"The things that leaders have to do in diplomacy. And you mentioned two books in passing in your own book breaking history. One is the hundred year marathon by Pillsbury about China. Excellent book. The other is Lawrence Wright's book on Camp David. You have to be read. You have to be well informed, but you also need partners. I notice, you are trying for four years to get, and the Abraham accords are the key big deal of the Trump period. I mean, history will still be looking at them in 300 years. The key thing was not moving forward until Mike Pompeo replaced Rex Tillerson at state until Robert O'Brien arrived to replace John Bolton. Why do individuals matter so much when the principles want to get somewhere? So that's actually one of the fascinating things that hopefully people will get from reading the book is that I learned that nobody in Washington can get anything done by themselves. It's really a function of different people from different backgrounds with different experiences from different geographies coming to a coming together, having to agree on an objective, create a plan and then all row together in order to accomplish it. And I think in the beginning, Trump's policies were so radical to Washington, right? A lot of people say he's conservative, some people call them other things. I think of him as a pragmatist. And I thought that a lot of the things he was saying just made sense, right? Why are we stuck in all these endless wars if we're fighting a war? Let's fight to win. Why are we getting taken advantage of on trade by people who were protecting like Europe and NATO? And so all these things to me just made a lot of common sense. And so you had people in there. I think the biggest difference with a guy like Tillerson was that he wanted to manage the world, whereas Trump wanted to change the world. And Trump, I write about a lot about his decision making. I write about how he would take calculated risks in order to make big differences. And I give great examples. I take people into the situation room and into the different scenes when he was deciding to move the embassy. The fierce resistance he got from the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense from the Intel community from every other world leader, and Trump understood why no other president had done it before. It was just a barrage. But he didn't allow that risk to dissuade him. He studied it. And then he said, to me, Jared, I want you to go mitigate that risk. If people's fear is that there's going to be riots and explosion in the Middle East, call all the leaders in the Middle East and tell them we're watching. They want our help now with Iran. They want our help with military. They want our help with trade. They want our help with a million other things. Tell them this is a decision we are going to make, Israel is a sovereign nation. They have the right to determine where their capital is. And we are a sovereign nation. We have the right to recognize that decision. And so if they have a problem with it, they can voice it, but that's it. I don't want to see big problems. And so we really mitigated it. There's one leader in the Middle East who said to me at that time. He said, Jared, I'm not going to tell you to move the embassy. I'm not going to tell you not to do it. But what I will tell you is that if you do do it, you'll find out who your Friends are. And that was a very, very true and why statement. And we ended up working with everyone and we got it done. And I think that with Trump, the more that he slaughtered the sacred cows and did the things that everyone warned him couldn't be done. And again, he did them very thoughtfully. They were not done recklessly or impetuously.
"key things" Discussed on WTOP
"Kuiper. The more this morning we turn to ABC News political director Rick Klein for his take. Well, this is a major development that gives us more information than we've ever known previously about the extent of the investigations that the Justice Department is engaged in. The key thing to know here is that if this is related to the handling of documents, it may or may not be directly related to the January 6th investigation. It's not clear that the documents that were taken from Mar-a-Lago under suspicious circumstances were related to anything regarding January 6th, but it is blindly presumed that it would be secret former president is very angry. Releasing that statement that the last the FBI for what he says is politically motivated effort to try to bring him down. We should note that we're just north of 90 days out from the midterm elections. So we're already in the political season. And we should remind everyone there were boxes of documents that the president apparently managed to get down tomorrow Lago that were eventually seized and then brought back up here to the national archives and that as you've been saying seems to be the central focus on this, although it's so early, we don't quite know what the heck is going on yet. Sure. We don't know the circumstances under which those documents arrived at Mar-a-Lago. We also don't know if the boxes that were returned were complete records of everything there. We don't even know the timing. We know that it's possible that some of those documents came down during the Trump presidency and were left there accidentally after the Trump presidency. So the contents remain mysterious, but this is not done lightly. There's no Justice Department that would engage in something like this without a very good and deliberative process. And I have to think up to and including the approval of the attorney general himself. What do we think is next now that this is happening? Well, it's going to move into the political realm very quickly. I've imagined a lot of folks are going to be quite angry about seeing the executed search warrant. I think it's going to be up to the Trump team to talk more about what it is that was seized here because otherwise the Justice Department would typically go quiet. But this is a major escalation. There's no precedent in American history for the Justice Department to go after documents from a former president. As part of what has the former president quite upset, but we also know that the pressure of the Justice Department has come under to show the results of an investigation has only been increasing.

That is a 100% guaranteed. Do you know enough Rick to talk about where it may go from here?

"Is engaged in. The key thing to know here is that if this is related to the handling of documents, it may or may not be directly related to the January 6th investigation. It's not clear that the documents that were taken from Mar-a-Lago under suspicious circumstances were related to anything regarding January 6th, but it is widely presumed that it would be secret former president is very angry, a releasing that statement that the last the FBI for what he says is politically motivated effort to try to bring him down. We should note that we're just north of 90 days out from the midterm elections. So we're already in the political season. And we should remind everyone there were boxes of documents that the president apparently managed to get down tomorrow Lago that were eventually seized and then brought back up here to the national archives and as you've been saying seems to be the central focus on this, although it's so early, we don't quite know what the heck is going on yet. Sure. We don't know the circumstances under which those documents arrived at Mar-a-Lago. We also don't know if the boxes that were returned were complete records of everything there. We don't even know the timing. We know that it's possible that some of those documents came down during the Trump presidency and were left there accidentally after the Trump presidency. So the contents remain mysterious, but this is not done lightly. There's no Justice Department that would engage in something like this without a very good and deliberative process. And I have to think up to and including the approval of the attorney general himself. What do we think is next now that this is happening? Well, it's going to move into the political realm very quickly. I've imagined a lot of folks are going to be quite angry about seeing the executed search warrant. I think it's going to be up to the Trump team to talk more about what it is that was seized here because otherwise the Justice Department would typically go quiet. But this is a major escalation. There's no precedent in American history for the Justice Department to go after documents from a former president. As part of what has the former president quite upset, but we also know that the pressure of the Justice Department has come under to show the results of an investigation has only been increasing. In this suggests that they are taking everything that's coming across their play quite seriously. And to take it one step further, you mentioned it's quickly going into the political realm. That is a 100% guaranteed. Do you know enough Rick to talk about where it may go from here? That is to say, is it radioactive and does it bounce back on the Democrats as well as deeply hurt the Republicans or do we know? No, that is going to be the question.

Chat w_ Alberto Daniel Hillmp3 - burst 2
"Of your bio from your LinkedIn page. Oh, why do I can talk about myself without reading? I would be better. That would be better. Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself? I know. Yeah, that's right. Well, guys, I am a computer engineer. I am my name is Alberto, first of all. I want to kill. I am from Uruguay, of America. And I am a computer engineer. I have been working for 20 years into information security in different fields, such as computer forensics, consulting, I have a BMP certification, which is a pressure management professional from the PMA organization, and that allowed me to lead many projects, implementing information security management systems, based on the norm, so I select 27,000, which I am also satisfied, and I am the first hacker in Uruguay that will seem to be, but that's not the main point, the pain point is that I was sent to research and for trying to help others seem to present without being guilty of any crime. And well, I am here with my friend Tony that I met on the address spaces. And well, she invited me to talk in a space with her and I'm very honored to be here today. Thank you. And I want to welcome everyone to this nice space. I see we have Jason, who I met also on Twitter space bunsen and beaker who hosts an incredible portrait of phrases. Make sure you follow. I guess he does a great work and also my good friend Jason, who is an incredible guitarist. He plays beautiful music for me and hi there. So she's just kind of remark the sky as we follow each other. How are you? And hi Mike, how are you, space Mike, and also let's say hi to mister proctor 31 and also to Samantha. Hi, everybody. Welcome to this space. And again, another disclaimer. We are recording this space. I am running an analytics on this space. So if you could go ahead and share this out and invite all your Friends, even if they're not seen on this base, there are people listening to us right now according to the software. I wanted to talk a little bit about some of the things that you experienced. But what made you decide to reach out? I mean, you know, they say that no good deal unpunished. Alberto, I wonder, can we talk a little bit about that? Well, maybe you decide to reach out and to help your country. Wait, do you mean after or before being arrested? Before being arrested, I mean, did you thought that you would get arrested for doing this? Absolutely not. It was something that never crossed my mind. It was something that for me, it was impossible that would never happen. I mean, if you ask anyone from my school, when I was a child, when I was in university, I was probably the most introverted person in the class, the person that if you have told anyone of my act Friends from college, who will be impression, if you have to do one person in the future, I would probably leave it the last in the list to be considered, no, never across my mind. And as I work in cybersecurity, one of the key things that we do is finding some problems in systems, you may find them in the place where you work and you are paid for finding them. I mean, that's part of your issue. Or actually, when you go to your house and you tell your computer, you can also find security problems in systems that are not under your control. And yeah, I did find a lot of problems in many systems. And all the time, I reported them in order to help those people that both the companies that are involved and the people whose information is started in those systems that are being vulnerable without wanting anything in return. I mean, there are no problems here in Europe. So you do it just to help you then get I mean, you don't get to eat sometimes I think in return, but I consider that that's the thing to do because otherwise somebody with bad intentions will probably find the same problem you found. And they will be affecting the private information of a lot of people, which I really like because privacy for me is something patients and I respect other people's privacy and I want my what I don't want to I don't want to be invaded by policy and my life is quite public right now, but I really think the priorities should be really respected. But I have reported for years not to accompanies to what I find the best, but to assert of my country, the search is agency of the development that handles all the security things that are linked to the government and to critical systems or importance systems such as America providers, for example, or financial financial institutions. And well, I have done it for years. And I never had any problem. Until I found a very important security issue in America provider that was the provider of my ex-girlfriend where she wanted to set an appointment in the system and she gave me a computer to do that. And well, before she gave me her username and password, I was already in the system with the privilege of administrator being able to see absolutely everything everything out there, the provider with the username admin and the password admin, which is something that is hard to relieve, but it was true. So I immediately reported that to the serve. And then I forgot about it because you had to report it and you don't need to get any update or you have to know how the incident is being handled and solved. That's not part of the report. You are just the person who reported it and that's it. And the year after that, I went again to a website and when you add in this field for so many years, you plan its mail when a system has security flows just by taking a look at it and you see certain patterns or certain indicators that the site can be easily captured to put them away. And again, in 5 minutes, I would say it will access to all the medical records of all the uses of the system, just modifying a parameter in the URL, which means, for example, you have a URL that has a number on it at the end and you change that number that you start surfing through all the records without being authenticated in the system, which means you didn't need a username or password, anywhere you could access to that information, just having the URL, and a report that two years after that September 2017 Interpol visit, arrested me, and I was sent to prison accused of having had the medical provider. That's what happened to me. You mean, they actually used the word admin as a password. They believe it or not, it's probably the, it's a problem that goes back to 19 60s that it was first pointed out as a big problem. And it's still 2021, but you still find systems that have the problem. And that works with scenarios that I have found in our abilities in systems, and Scala systems, such as those that controls the pump of the associations where you can access the without using even the username and password. The user is connected via template, and you can execute remotely comment to modify the parameters of the pumps in the gas stations, which is even worse that using admin admin. So I'm going to let anyone up yet to grab them I get me about ten minutes. I want to kind of like do some chat with Alberto. So Mike don't be upset. I got you. So we'll get you up here. 'cause I have a lot of questions to ask because I'm besides I want to kind of touch base on his books because I didn't realize how many books he had going on. There was a lot and it's on his profile, but he might want to take a look at it. But I wanted to talk to you a little bit about, I think all of us in this space, it has social network, right? We're all we have Facebook, Instagram, career, and all this stuff. And I've had friends who have lost their account, so on hacked in, they went in, they pretty much copied their account and create another one, especially Facebook, Facebook was an incredible place that has happened to a lot of my friends actually. So why would you do when you say Facebook is compromised? But what should someone do? Well, that is a question that somebody from Facebook should answer. It's a very frustrating situation. But from my experience, I mean, I have to clarify, I hate Facebook. So that's the point number one. I hate Facebook. So I am not as somebody who knows a lot about it because I don't use it. I have an account in Facebook. But I really refuse to do it. I don't know what they like. But when it comes to losing your account, I strongly relate that Facebook has implemented several processes and mechanisms in order to recover that. Such as having, for example, Friends contact that can allow you to verify that you are the person who is requesting to gain a gain access to certain account if it's been lost. So maybe you also have some kind of security questions such as showing images of friends and having to link them to names in order to prove that you know that people in order to prove that you are the person who is claiming their account back and I think that those countries probably work pretty well so it's not like okay, I got hacked and I have to forget about my account. The few places I know were sold that way, you should always have a backup email and to factor authentication and things like that. But that doesn't mean you are protected. If somebody hacks into your Facebook account, they can change up immediately everything that you have set for recovery, but nowadays all the systems normally requires you certain steps in order to modify that, for example, if somebody gets access to my Twitter account right now because they know my password, they will need my second factor authenticator in order to log in. But in case they get into my system because, for example, they still my application is still in the cookie station, not to be technical, means still in your session of the user. If somebody still starts cooking, then they take the account, it is basically Euclid herself in the pound and they can go to our account settings and care, for example, to change their password immediately, but in order to change that password, you need to enter the previous password. And probably you also need my second factor dictator. So I still in the cookie, which is the most. Easy way to still an account from Twitter or for many service because they're still in if they still cookie, they grab your identity, they don't need your password. So to assume to answer your question, just contact report that to Facebook and try to follow the steps that are part of the process of recovering. And you're going to probably. Unfortunately, I assume that certain amount of people are not lucky enough to remember that I found that I had to start from zero. And that's a big issue because the account that is being stolen can be used for I mean, they can contact your contacts and send them information or your reputation, basically they want there are many things that motivate somebody to have an account, one is rearrange another could be just to prove that they can do it. But the reason behind that is Ari, the fact is that you lost something that belongs to you and have information about you that you should be in control of and once you are being hurt, you lose that control and what they can do with your account is not up to you and that's really that's really something that makes you frustrated and powerless that something terrible. Yeah, I think that's everyone's nightmare. Everyone in this space I think we all are worried about that and thanks for sharing some of your tips or not. And I know you have your next year spaces your own is coming up at 6 o'clock, which you'll go more and more detail and I'll be co hosting with you. So also will be nana will be basically she has a lot of content regarding those topics that will be top in about. So manic with your will be co hosting with you. Samantha will be also telling what it is to what it feels to be had, how the life of a person is being impact when it is hard and her story can open the eyes of the people to know that if you have this really serious do anything you can to prevent that, but because when it happens, it feels out of your control. Your life can really turn into a nightmare. So you can really help a lot of people. Yeah, I mean, I just, you know, social media has been around for a long time and I'm one of those people that literally shared everything every part of my what I ate, you know, what I did, what events I'm at, I didn't even think about it. I don't have any remember four square or not. I remember just, you know, not thinking about it. I'm just always checking in, trying to be the mayor of a space, you know, like a restaurant or something, just to be there. And not once did we ever thought that, wow, someone could come through your house and rob you or, you know, still the identity based on what your profile set yourself up. So can you give us some little tips on what we should do from now on, especially now that we're also transparent and always sharing online? Well, actually, my recommendation is guys do not do what I do. Do not share when you go to Australia, take a picture and put afternoon Montevideo and I also put a time stamp in the pictures showing the data and the hour, don't do that guys, don't do what I do. That's no need to expose so much information allowed you. Everything you share can be used and probably will be used to, I mean, people are, as I said, the motivations for hacking are huge, but one of them is just to put that you can do it. And you see, okay, there's a guy that I follow that if it's a hacker that goes after people that are in the files, she hacks those accounts, for example, that hits motivation to develop those kind of users. Well, just the question is, what are you intuitive or in any social platform? If you want to connect with friends, then just create a private profile and connect with the people you know and you want to be in touch with. And don't allow any stranger in your network. If that's what you want, if you want, for example, like me, to be known and I don't know how to say it, to bring a message to create a world that's about certain topics and basically. Get to be known, I share too much information, probably, that I try to think about it in terms of cost and benefits are risk and benefit and put everything in the scale and well, I post too much information about me that I shouldn't. But I think it's worth what I get back from it. I mean, I get the attention and engagement from

Three Things to Move America in a Better Direction With Morgan Zegers
"Right, so what is your message? You're talking to millions of people across the nation from tough places like California all the way through Texas and back to the swamp in D.C.. If they haven't taken a stand on these issues, where should they start? And how do you convince them? What would you say to them about the enormity of the threat? Well, this is incredibly serious. I would say the most important thing for us to all do is better ourselves as individuals, focus on our families, focus on our communities and state level power and that will improve the country as a whole. If we start to understand what it actually means to organize on a community and neighborhood level, we will have massive political power and move this country forward in a better way. We need to rethink community, rethink our personal lifestyles and gain more independence away from the governments and the international supply chains around us. And we need to also rethink education. Those are the three key things to move this country in a better direction.
Rhonda Stoppe: In Marriage, Love Is to Be a Friend
"Well, that's one of the key things you've been married 36 years, Jean and I've been married 32. How about you and Dana going on 35? Okay, so 38 now. Oh, 38. Okay, so when you see that, I mean, it can be pretty dry at times. And I'm sure there's a spouse, a wife or a husband listening right now going, yeah, we kind of hit the desert island 12 years ago, or 15 years ago. For that parched couple who, you know, they haven't kept with it. They haven't romanced each other. They haven't done the hard work, which it really is hard work. I think the first thing I would say is, one of the couple is listening today, not both of them. And they're thinking, oh, I wish he was listening to this. I wish she was listening to that. And my advice is let it begin with you. Don't wait until he becomes the man you wanted him to be. Yeah, but here's the irritating part. It's the irritating part. How do you overcome the irritating part to say, okay, it's going to start with me. I'm going to act differently. I'm going to act more excited or whatever. For me. Yes. Number one, it was finding great mentors. It was finding couples. We worked in youth ministry, so we got to see the parents of our youth. And the ones who still held hands when they walked in the door at church, the one who laughed at each other's jokes, winked at each other across the room. I'm like, what do you know? And we just became friends with them. What did they say? I always say old ladies. Old ladies know stuff, you know, Titus two calls the older women to teach the younger how to love their husbands, and that word love is to be his friend. It's how to be his friend. When we get married, our husbands oftentimes are thinking, this woman's gonna be my friend. She's gonna be my support, my encourager. And I think we get so busy about the business of life. We forget that.
Rep. Salazar’s Immigration Bill Offers Path to Legal Residency
"The immigration. I am genuinely interested in what you think are like the three key things in the immigration bill you are dropping. Listen, immigration is a mess. We need to send a message to the browns, the largest minority in the country, 20% of the population that we're welcoming them into the GOP. We want to be America as we do not want to be socialist. And this is the time to send the invitation letter to that minority that we want them in our party. The problem is that we have the devs have promised the Hispanics for 35 years that they're going to do an immigration reform law and they haven't, because all that do the Democratic Party does is play political football with my constituents.

Michael Pack's Documentary 'Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words' Aired on PBS
"Have right now? Did you guess Michael pack award winning documentary filmmaker if you saw the documentary film created equal, it was on PBS about clarence, Thomas, spectacular work, and even more spectacular because Michael pack is the kind of guy he can make a film like this and get it on PBS pretty amazing. Michael packets is just an honor to know you and to have you on this program. Welcome back. It is great to be back. It's an honor to know you too, Eric. You're the one of the few other people who understand what culture and the media and are trying to do something about it on our well, you're kind to say that and I'm honored to hear you say that because I feel I do feel like this is, you know, there are people who talk about it, and then there are people like you who to make a film about clarence Thomas, which is one of the most moving documentaries, one of the most groundbreaking documentaries because of the cultural narrative about Thomas and race and just the nonsense for you to be able to make a film like that at the level you made it to get it on PBS, that's what I have cared about for decades. I said, it's one thing if we know the story. But how do we get the story out to people who don't know the story? People who might, I don't know what they watch PBS or CNN, but they're open minded. They haven't been brainwashed and not ideologues. So I'm just thrilled that you get all that. You've made obviously many films. People can find them, I guess at manifold productions dot com. That's right on our website. Manifold productions dot com. And I agree with you. The key thing really, we do an okay job on our side on rousing the base. And appealing to our core supporters. But what we're not doing is getting our story out to the middle of the undecided in America that the one third that's neither on the left or on the right that's open. And we need to reach those people. And that is why I've always been glad to have my films on PBS. I hope they will continue to put them on. I'm not convinced things are getting away and way more polarized. And we have to be more serious about means of distribution as well as production.

"There. Let's find out. What's on Mr Damn Barker's mind. Good morning down. Morning, Bob. Well, I want to thank you for a couple weeks ago, asking me to come up with some figures on the water exports out of the delta, particularly And, um, because I developed that into a short presentation that I gave it the water board. This week in the Bureau of Reclamation has a temperature management plan. That, of course, will kill hope. Big percentage of the salmon that are in the rivers. Now they made. That announcement was the beginning of this last week that they may not be able to fulfill their temperature goals and the press. Of course, the press doesn't know what questions to ask. So the bureau just says it's hard to do this and two years of drought with going into the real reason we're in there with this problem, right? So I'd like to, um, go over this a little bit because they have done a little bit more. Research into this and what I said, is that The, uh, State Water control board needs to reject the reclamation temperature management plan. And to adopt a management plan that protects the public trust and salmon in the sacramental and the climate. Prunty water ships And it's real important to note that in eight out of the past 10 years to combine water experts from the state and federal projects have exceeded the three million acre feet and no export figures that many believe to be the maximum amount of water that can be exported from the delta without destroying the ecosystem. And harming first species and in every water yourself for 2 2014 in 2015 state and federal water projects exported well over three million acres. Feet. Water from the delta and that three million acre feet camp would rape sports. Was a key recommendation of the Environmental Water Caucus. Updated water solutions planned, you know, an alternative to the tunnels and all And sites, Reservoir and other so called solutions and that was called a sustainable water plan for California. But, you know, in the last decade, 2001 was he all time record export year 6.7 or 67 million acre feet? Well, that when was after That was 2011. 2000 of them and then to douse. Uh 2017 was right behind was 6.46 million acre feet. That was the second year of the drought. Yeah. Oh, just 2017 was the year that was 2007 Milkha. Okay, and 2018 was 4.6. Two million acre feet. Um, 2019 was 5.3 million acre feet and then 2020. Was again what, well above three million acre feet 3.65 million Agra feet on. That was the first year the drought and anybody in their right mind would think they would try to conserve. Water in case we had to drought years in a row, which we've had, which they did not right. And that's the key thing, if if the state doesn't conserve enough water A man can't maintain the carryover storage of Sammons can successfully spawn and the human Office canal on that migrate, then we end up in a situation. Where recently used C D. F W was forced to truck all of the Sacramento River fish down River to the base so that those fish can survive. So this is, um You know, this is a really Really bad situation they were in this year and, of course. There's a drought. You know, we can't stop that that that exists. But the problem is the way they manage it into out years and then you know, on and years following the job years is horrible. They don't maintain materials over storage. Prepare for another job. Hey, hey, we're going to go even further and that they know they can get away with it because your number one priority is to deliver to their customers, Not you or may And the domestic sense They're Agra business customers and assess Farrah salmon goes, They only do what they're required to do by law and most of the time. Not even that out right now, As far as I'm concerned, this situation we're in is the Bureau of Reclamation is fault. Yeah. There. There there. Public information from prevention office. Doesn't help the press, honey. So right and it's zeitgeist deal you did there, Dan. I hope it made an impact. At least you're letting them know that somebody outside their office knows what the hell's going on. Yep. So that was good job. Thanks. Let's follow up on this a little bit more next week because I'm sure it will be in the news. Thank.

"I've talked about this six step process so that things properly covered off and everybody's adequately protected going with our eyes open so basically there's lots of ways the holy grail allows you to grow in its scale allows other people to get involved in in property. Maybe it more of an arms length without getting their The without rolling the sleeves up if you like and They could even get involved. Depending on the arrangement i guess where would you go to Finance i'm not to give it all so in the book but i will say this. Many people go to property meetings looking to raise money. Fool their property projects. And i'm going to say to you. That's the wrong place. The look i would suggest that in most property meetings whether it's online or face to face that probably may be two out of one hundred people in the room. Were looking actively looking to put money into property investors in their projects so in other words you've got ninety eight people look the so. What are the odds. I what are the odds of being successful in rising private finance in that situation on. I know that people do it And you hear about that. And people even sell courses about that goats approximates and present yourself and raise money. But i'm just playing the odds. So in other words the best place to go is not presuming top. He's actually where people with money hanging out basically and not could also be property me. I understand that. But because there's a lot of looking for is the holy. Grail advocate off Off of being in properties to raise private financing. Then there's a lot of. There's a lot of really trying to find the two and wondering if we can if we're going to be the one that they choose to put their money and if we can convince them. Sunday was go go elsewhere the number of places in the in the in the book. You have to just wait for that. What you've mentioned on one or two other occasions and giving you a few tips there as well so there we go..

"You can take currencies from people and from companies for example and then. There's something called cross collateralisation which is no easy to say the time recording this and that's really about taking alternative types of assets Alone so not just linking it to one form of security but maybe taking different forms of security link into different assets without getting into a and it could be some of the indirect security for example restrictions on title option agreements. They fall into that category. So i'm going to go into it too much. Just signed post you to to that when it comes to Looking at security. The next section really is all about advises now i've got a section on advisers because a lot of people don't take any advice that don't get people involved now. There is a cost of asli To bringing people on your team. And i've highlighted at least three main categories in in some of the others as well so we got financial advises legal advisers and tax advisers and then within the other cats These really are specialists. It could be architects. it could be planning consultants. They could be severe for example but primarily. You'd be looking at financial advisors legal advice in texas is now if you just went out and got one of each of them just because you want them to have him on your team and you start talking about an agreement you're gonna have with a property investor or developer and and you go to a financial adviser goatee you lingo with solicitors effectively. And you guys your tax advisor what you might funded bill. That's ratcheting up pretty quickly and getting out of hand so it is a case of doing things you know in in proportion and scale to the to the arrangement that you've got ahead of you so don't get carried away but been and it also depends on your own level of sophistication if you're used to investing and investments reading contractual terms. And that sort of thing is i kind of. I'm and i was training financial services. Then you know. i'm. I'm more comfortable advising myself from a financial point of view and to some degree attacks. Points-of-view has announced on some of the basics of illegals. But i still have a solicitor. That helps me on On my agreements. So have the right advice. And as the old adage say says free advice is worth every penny so yes do expect to pay something for having people around you but they can protect you. Protect the downside risk. So it's always worth having and then the final step in this particular prices are wanted to outline as what it called the paperwork and that's really how you gonna document things and this is where a lot of things come unstuck. You can have a conversation with my wife. For example he lakes won't be could charm. recall the compensation. we both have a slightly different push events. Can we just sat down. We had dinner. We watch the tv program. We discuss them. And then we try in combat later on and just recall. What what it is we discussed or what. What is we agree. And we might have been slightly different spectacle recollection of events. And the only way we could result. Vat not that we do. This at home would be to rusty down. Why sit down and shut shirt. Two of the person goes what you understood. Oh well actually no. It's not. I said this. Okay let's change it and make your right. So that's the point. Rating of having things written down is to avoid confusion very basic level but also to avoid disputes..

"The next thing then to consider is the security is available is on offer and what you find here is a. I'll go to dog in the religious shows arrows pointing in the opposite direction. We're secures yellow one side and reward on the other side so usually with high level of security comes in lower level of reward or return and vice versa. So it doesn't always follow that's the case but usually it does so somebody who's really secured. We know i'm going to come onto the security. But if they're very heavily secured will what is a risk And so the money will be that high and so therefore the returns that they're going to receive may also not be a high. It's not as simple as that is not just a a risk reward equation or as mention all of these factors. Come into play. The policies risk profile. The terms are available. The track record of the politics of the individuals can send undertaking elements all of these things coming to into black. But i didn't want to dive deci one thing and when people think about return day normally think about well how much i get on top of what i put in. Okay so what i put in is your capital various employees. And what you get back is your return so you got capital and you got you. Return doesn't matter what else we call them. But that's quite simple concept I think is warren buffett. Benjamin graham etcetera. They basically say don't risk your capital. Don't risk losing your capital will if you If that resonates with you right now you're thinking yeah definitely don't risk my capital and that might put you more in the category of a debt. Financier okay because usually with a debt. Financier you can take some security which will give you a degree of protection against. You're comfortable being lost. Whereas if you're an equity provide you putting the equity. You don't usually have a lot of security behind the he might have some. And i'll talk about some of the types of security that you can have but it's not as tangible it's not realizable as what it might be if you putting in so if you find yourself getting a bit twitchy about the potential to lose some or all of your capital Then you might want to stay towards providing debt financing as. You're talking to people like me or other people investors and developers and similarly if you're concerned about your partner from my perspective looking financed partner if i can sense that that really risk of us and they nervous about potential loss of capital a. Might stay down the debt route. Robin the equity route may prefer the upside rewards that come with equity but actually i'll be doing them a favor by putting pushing them down the camp of maybe protecting some of that downside loss of capital risk. So that's just something to keep in mind. I think nothing that comes into the equation. Here is what. I call the funding stack so the funding stock. Just the picture for a moment a pyramid in front of you which breaks down into free segment so you got the base of the pyramid. The middle part of the pyramid and the top of the pyramid. So it the fuck that really is looking at the bottom each much more stable. And that's where this high level of security that's available and usually accompanied by lower levels of return. If we move up the pyramid. We can stay. See things you know..

"Depth and detail here but essentially is how much how long on what basis and i'm what Back so that's the That's the terms it's a. It's you'd be surprised. Actually the people's Understanding and expectations of returns varies widely varies widely based on their Experience and they they knowledge but it also varies long. Their risk profile in their risk appetite. So somebody might say the o- on Eurofriendly percent that's too good to be true The must be catch. Not kind of thing where somebody else might say. Eight percent eight percent. But i'm taking. I'm putting all the equity capital into this And you've got you know a heap of debt. There's loads of risky now at eight percents. Nowhere near to compensate me for that. So you can get these just far. Too percentage of. I wanna make i said percent but he you can just get different opinions. Different perspectives on a cool econ account talk about returns without also talking about security and risk so they kinda go hand in hand yet the slightly different steps in my process So don't want to get to to head myself. But in terms of returns could be fixed fee or a fixed percentage basis they could be a percentage of prophets or fixed fee return or variable amounts of return. So there's various ways in which you can call up things and one of recommend these bit. Lucky of a throwback. Last week. I talked about having conversations or having meaningful conversations when it's exactly the same when you're talking with a finance pawn have a meaningful conversation with the finest owner and work. How what is they are looking for. And you actually. If you get you get to understand whether leaning more towards debt financing on a fixed right basis with high level of security or tendency by looking for higher rates of return we've higher higher upside potential maybe take a little bit more of a risk in terms of less security than maybe the debt financiers see you. You can quickly workout that this. This risk appetites in profiles personalities financing personalities. Literally that you end up to talking to. I will share with one of the tips under this section. Because it's just one. The i kind of throw out lots on talking about private financing and is this and i have a general rule. If you like. And it's the the closer you are to the source of the financing the lower the cost of the financing goes that again the closer. You are to the source of the financing haunts the lower the cost of the financing. No that isn't always true. But you know you might like you a little bit. She might want you to succeed in your property venture Your system do people were close to people who care about you and they might want to support you. And so maybe they won't ask for demand Such a high return than perhaps the haunt knows sophisticated high net worth investor. Who's got multiple things implies. Let's say so. It's a general But equally I think he needs to be careful about the opposite of that. So if somebody's offering something that seems too good to be true and they don't really know you and you're trying to figure out why keep keep wondering right. It's not always what it seems. Okay so that was if you like. That was the times. She's the commercial temps of the arrangement..

"I call six key areas that need to be considered kind of regardless of what type of private financing whether it's death or equity so his secrets in run through which is going to dip into some elements of this so we've gone through private financing. You've got to look at the project itself man or come onto the definition of these things The policies that are involved the tons the a being made available or the agreed the security. that's the sorts is provided the advisors Involved on both sides. And how you're gonna documents and i quote in. The paper works on things. How going to document things on the paperwork. So that's the that's the process And what you quickly realize. There's an interconnectedness here. So i won't talk about project. You know it's Project without token about maybe advises without pay be talking about the policies you know it cetera and secure as he comes into the mix as well. So there's an interdependence interrelationship between all of these different components but detroit. Keep it simple on. Won't firm so the first thing to consider as the project itself now. The project could be a literally property project. Something we're going to do but it could also be a collection of different Projects it could be for a defined period to do something. It could be any todd business activity so the project. I'm using aluminum but generally speaking when it comes to property projects this kind of full you know general property projects where private financing would come into play and not boils down to whether it's a single unit opportunity or multi unit opportunity again. I'm just simplifying. So there's a single unit opportunity. Probably the most obvious thing you know would allow a private Financier private investors to get involved would be flip buying and selling a property making a profit so because it's defined period of time is called clear exit as call it which is the sale and Typically it works well for his policies. It's not a long time. It could be six nine twelve months for example to get in announced a project. Take the money onto type projects and return the funds After the projects being completed A flip disease to explain and usually. It's a single property. Single harm the is. This has some sorta valley-wide in on being resold this variations on the theme. Obviously and then. I've been on. That is if you not going to sell the property that you're going to retain it and typically that will be what's cool to be are off by refurbish refinance project so going to keep this project but as body to it rains it out uncut and so the vest or in this case would be repaid out. Solve the refinancing proceed so we need to make sure there's enough money that's going to come out the back end if the property is rented and retained. So let's kind looking at whether it's a single family home or single property and then if we look at a multi unit in project. That's really what we start to look. At development that could be development in a small day or development with a capital day. And so what. I mean there could be a house that is split into two flights. Now still developing. But it's not a really big project. It's multi unit..

"And as always it's a pleasure to have you join me on the show today. We'll some of you. Many of you might even be aware that currently rising it simple come prophecy financing. And he's still just gonna be about mortgages basically It's going to go a little bit wider a bit deeper than that. Just give you a bit of a heads up is going to have what i call is gonna have three sections I being institutional finance so that's kind of buys mortgages in bridging finance and things like that but it also goes into alternative finance and creative financing techniques. So i'm gonna a little bit wider as a site then many prophecy books so my heads into the moment and in particular heads into a chapter the i i wrote over the weekend lasso. Some not necessarily old of the segments of that chops with you. I want you looking over four thousand words. And that's before a case study or to to i'd into it and the the theme is really about private financing and the basically private financing is a former of prophecy financing this provided by individual a partnership or an entity owned and controlled by such people. Senator woods is not institutions. Usually you're talking to the people directly who make the decisions or very close to them and so just give you some examples. It could be you know Lenders joint venture partners could also be small companies in partnerships. it could be pension funds. Small ones just sips and sas pension funds family offices and things like that so you counted dealing with human beings. That's the key point. Hey what's the key with private financing and if you do with a human being you'll dating wave them on on that level they may have policies and procedures in prices and rules and criteria et cetera. That they had hit two but generally speaking. There's a lot more flexibility and this is the somewhat something about holy grail really. All of property. Investors and developers is to access private financing. And there's a number of reasons for that The most obvious one will actually several the office but the most obvious one is allows us to scale. allows us to have access to financing that we don't ourselves house necessarily a say that everybody runs out at some point And so allows us to scale and do more with less in terms of funding. But he's also can be quicker. It can give us direct access to decision makers it can bring additional benefits into our proxy business. So don't just look at someone who's providing money.
