Crime and Punishment
"I saw a video just recently of a guy who was kidnapped and he was fear. He was kidnapping people and that's how he was making money on social media. He was acting like he was an entrepreneur, but him and his friends were kidnapping people. It was just in Africa somewhere. He was kidnapping people, and then he was extraordinary. And then that's how he was making money. But when they called him, they had him out there in the middle of the street in his underwear. With handcuffs on his hands, and I just looking at him on his knees, the whimpering, they probably was beating him. He was getting some lashes. And you know, nowadays, and I'm not, I'm not trying to dig and promote violence in it like that. I'm just saying, what are we doing ain't working clearly? You get the kids after they go to jail and they have a good time. They go up in there and they, they join the game, they have a little bit of protection. They are. Maybe if they don't join the game and get raped in there and that just what it is. But for the most part, they go to these prisons and they get three hots and a cot. They finally put money in their books. They get little meals and they get to read. They become Muslim and all this other stuff they do in jail. They ain't that ain't that hard for some people to do a couple years. It ain't that hard. That's why residency is that high, 'cause clearly when they go to jail, it's not they ain't feeling the pressure. Some of these countries man, they beat you. You get, oh, you get exposed openly. I remember when our countries do the firing squad. You know, now we don't want to let your chairs too much. Oh, no, corporation. No, death penalty is too much. Just let them live off taxpayer dollar for the rest of their life. When they mutilated somebody, we're afraid to give them the death penalty. Man, put these people to death and quit playing.
Jared Kushner: From the Private Sector to the White House
"Do this exclusively so we could have a long form conversation with someone who I got to know rather well over the last couple years and we worked on some things when he was in The White House and I saw firsthand how hard he worked on the America first agenda. And that is Jared Kushner, author of a new book breaking history, a White House memoir and Jared joins us right now. Jared, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you, Charlie. It's great to be with you and thank you for all the great work you did over the last years when we were fighting together on so many different things. So really great to be with you. Of course, we were in the trenches on a couple things, and I saw firsthand just a little bit of the pace and the pressure that kind of you had to deal with in The White House. So let's just kind of start there. You came from the private sector, you then came into The White House. Talk about just kind of the first couple of days, weeks and months in The White House, as someone who is used to kind of private sector behaviors and practices. Cutting into government, it's a completely different thing. Tell us about that. Yeah, so I write about this in the book and what I tried to do is bring people who everyone talks about Trump. They talk about the administration. They obsess about Washington and saying what they should do or shouldn't do, but what I tried to show people what it was like as somebody who was from the private sector and not from Washington going into that universe and just realizing what a bizarre world it was. And at first it was very disorienting in the sense that you come in every meeting. You have people telling you new regulations. You have to follow, you know, what are your protocols to do phone calls and it becomes a very procedure driven place. And so it becomes very easy to get bogged down by procedure and not get anything done. But we found our way through it. Again, president Trump, you know, he jokes that the first night he ever slept in Washington because he wasn't a mayor of governor senator. He slept in The White House. And so he had a team of people with him who were also outsiders to Washington, and we all came in and tried to figure out how to implement his agenda, which was contrary to a lot of the Republican orthodoxy that had been in place for some time. So
Charlie Chats With Anonymous Genius “Kane” of Citizen Free Press
"I'm sure many of you have noticed in the last couple years how drudge report has just become a left wing rag. It's unreadable. I used to go to drudge all the time. I don't go anymore. There's a new website, though, that is surging in traffic. They do a wonderful job of aggregation and staying on top of the news. It is citizen free press dot com. They're I have to tell you traffic is unbelievable lately. And the man behind citizen free press is someone just called Kane. You could call him Citizen Kane. He stays anonymous so that the left doesn't screw with him and that he's able to continue to operate the website freely to give an idea. Susan free press had a 169 million page views in the month of July. That is more than Politico, The Wall Street Journal Huffington Post, NBC News, TMZ, CBS News Daily Beast, ABC News, and more. And the man behind citizen free press, who is just called Kane. He lives in Bloomington, Indiana, and moraine anonymous for many reasons, of which I fully support, joins us right now. Citizen Kane, who runs citizen free press, how are you? Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks, Charlie. Glad to be here. And yeah, I'll touch on that a little bit. Look, from day one, I wanted to avoid any interaction with David Brock and media manner. And it's only grown in the last 5 years since I've been running the site, so it helps to stay anonymous. And somehow I've been able to do it for 5 and a half years. No one has no one listening has ever recognized that photo. Those are the colonnade of Thomas Jefferson's lawn in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia. So that's actually a reunion photo. So I'm a graduate of the University of Virginia. And used to be a progress grad, but in the new woke UVA, not so proud.
Kuemper to Move On; Avalanche Acquire Rangers Goalie Georgiev
"Okay, Joe sakic rolling the dice once again between the pipes as they are not going to bring back to RC camper. They did meet with Darcy Kemper and as we speculated yesterday during the show was this the first domino that had to fall before you could truly move on with free agency, you had to know if you could get a deal done with Darcy Kemper. Apparently the numbers were not a match for what Darcy wanted to what the avalanche wanted to pay. The avalanche quickly go out and acquire Alexander georgiev, they back up goalie for the New York rangers, hey, this is this follows the pattern, doesn't it? A couple years ago, Philip group hour. Last year, Darcy Kemper acquiring guys that haven't really proven yet that they can be the number one guy, but you speculate you project that they can be. They're doing it again with georgiev. Is this the right way to go? You got to trust that it is. You got to trust that he's making the right choice here. Obviously Darcy Kemper was an integral part of this team, and he overcame a lot to be able to be between the pipes when it mattered. Are they making a mistake not bringing him back? I don't think so. No, I mean, I rallied for Darcy Kemper to stay here, but you got to think that it really is about the culture. It really is about Jared bednar and his ability to get the most out of the players that he brings in here and find the diamonds in the rough. Those Uncut Gems who might have not struggled elsewhere, but not shined elsewhere and come here and been able to shine like the shushin as well. You know, we talked about that guy three years ago. He was on a team. He played 50 games didn't score a single goal. And all of a sudden he's here and making a big impact. So you got to trust that sack hicks process is to find those guys that are gonna
Were All of the Founding Fathers Slave Owners?
"Charlie, my friends all say the founding fathers were slave owners. What do you have to say about that? That is what John says from Pennsylvania. So I've done a, let's say a fair amount of public commentary on this. And I have to thank the great hillsdale college for this, honestly. So look, I went down into the hillsdale online courses, Charlie for hillsdale dot com. You should all check it out. That's Charlie F war hillsdale dot com. And I did the work. A couple years ago, I'd kind of just trip over my words whenever the issue of founding fathers and slavery came up. And I probably had a response that some of you gave like, oh yeah, but we abolished it and that was then and now this was then and this is now. That's not even a proper answer. Because it's not true. The founders all knew what they were doing was wrong. They wrote openly about it. So that doesn't make them hypocrites, it makes them sinners. As the great doctor Larry arn would say. 9 out of 13 a colonies had already abolished slavery by the time the constitution was ratified. The first antislavery convention was hosted in Philadelphia in 1775 by Benjamin Franklin. Thomas Jefferson admonished king George for bringing the Senate slavery into America. In the original draft of the Declaration of Independence. The northwest ordinance, article 6, said that no slaves should be in the new territories. But Nicole Hannah Jones insists that America's true founding was not in 1776 but 1619. Now who is Nicole Hannah Jones? She is the con artist that runs The New York Times 1619 project that your kid is probably learning from right now. Let's play cut one 53. 1619 in August of 1619 is when the first group of 20 to 30 Africans were sold into the Virginia colony. And what the project is basically arguing is that that is actually a foundational to the American story as the year 1776 because nothing would be left untouched by that decision to engage in the institutional slavery. So for those of you listening on podcasts, looks as if she has Elmo on her head. I don't quite understand. That someone went crazy with a dry erase marker. She's this massive orange head of hair. That is very bright. The sunglasses watching that clip.
Domonique Foxworth Gives Credit to the Dolphin Fans
"I gotta give some credit to the dolphins fans 'cause they are, in my view, the most sensitive fanbase in football right now, but I came after them back when they were tanking. And dolphins fans filled up my mansions with all type of hate. And then all those reports came out that the owner was allegedly paying the coach to drop games. My Mitch is they weren't as full in the first time, but I had some dolphins fans in there like you was right. A full fan base was like, oh yeah. What you said a couple years ago, my bad.
The Latest Bear Market May Be Here to Stay for a While
"But let's turn back to how long this thing is going to last. On average, I want to share with you if you look historically at markets in the post World War II error, you've seen that these bear markets have taken about 13 months really to go from P to trough and about 27 months to get back to break even. So that means we could be here for possibly, you know, another couple years and change. These things tend to take a little while to work out. I think when the fall is harder and faster, when you just see the market plunge really big way, those tend to recover more quickly. I mean, that's what we saw in March 2020, right? Which is if you listen to me in March 2020, I told you that that would happen. I told you the Federal Reserve would be there and that the administration would be there in the Congress would be there and you'd have plenty of stimulus to get us back on track. But what happens when you have too much stimulus? Which is where we are right now. I mean, that's where we are. That's why we have this inflation. That's why the market kept going up, up, up, and away, and people started ignoring basic fundamentals, right? Basic stuff that should actually influence you in how you invest all that stuff was thrown out the window. It was just like, who's going to be the next meme stock? I mean, when you're relying on that for an analysis, the weather company is going to do well. Yikes. Yeah. I mean, I think as much as we say, okay, you know, it can take a couple of years for these things to work out. I just want to point out that we haven't seen what's happening now in a really long time, right? You got to go back really to the 1970s to that error of Jimmy Carter instead collision to see this kind of situation.
The 2nd Amendment Protects ALL Other Amendments
"All the other amendments. Now, if we are not clear about why that is the intent of the Second Amendment, then it becomes nothing more than just a self defense argument. And then they'll say, well, then why do you need an AR-15 just to protect yourself? Now, there is a good argument for that. If you know about the LA riots and the kind of legendary Korean storekeepers that went on their roof and protected themselves using AR-15s against the rioters, there is a good reason for self defense. But that's not the intent of it, and it will make us profoundly less free as a country. If we're not clear about why we have the Second Amendment. So right now, about 26 million people in Shanghai, China, are locked down. They can not leave their apartment buildings. What would Shanghai look like right now? If they had a Second Amendment in China, what would Hong Kong have looked like a couple years ago, when China just annexed Hong Kong, if every one of the Hong Kong freedom protesters had an AR-15, slung around their back. Now, this means they had to use it, but as soon as the people have weapons, it becomes a negotiation, and it no longer is a hostage situation. If you do not have a Second Amendment, the government can take you hostage at any time. If only one side has the guns, then one side gets the determine whether or not you are free. Now, if you
The Left's Hold on the Black Community Is Coming to an End
"I want to get right to our guest. Someone who I have an amazing amount of respect for, I read basically everything he puts out. If there's an op-ed by this man, I read it. He's kind of the senior Professor of the conservative movement, and we are honored to have this great patriot with us today. Newt Gingrich, mister speaker, welcome back to the program. Thank you for that warm introduction. As long as you say those nice things, I'll always show up. Well, then we have a deal. So I want to talk about your piece. Democrats hold on the black community is ending, this is something that people have been talking about for a couple years. It was a wonderful piece, walk our audience through it. Well, we've been working on a project that Bernie Marcus launched back in 19 18, looking at the question of could you find an American majority that would be large enough and stable enough that you could really get the big things done we need to get this country back on the right road. And because of my background, both working with Ronald Reagan and then with the contract with America in creating the first Republican House majority in 40 years, we had sort of an instinct for how to do this. What's happened, of course, is that Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer mean, let's be fair. They all work together. They've created such a bad performance record at levels people feel. There was a brilliant article the other day by Selena zito, who's one of the great students of American politics. And she said, she was interviewing people in small towns in western Pennsylvania who said to her, look, I can't find baby formula without going to four or 5 stores. And I can't afford the gasoline to go to four or 5 stores. So Joe Biden is hitting me and every possible way. And I think what all that's doing is we have to remember, African Americans are as pocket sensitive as Latinos or Asian Americans or for that matter, caucasians. And they're looking out there that say, it ain't working.
The Great Decline: Will the Human Species Be Able to Continue?
"Economic Forum is meeting about all sorts of different issues, renewable energy and the environment are forefront issues. They're talking about mass migration and how they're going to support zelensky, some of the news out of yesterday is that zelensky has said that he wants $5 billion a month, that's right. He wants $5 billion a month from the world that we must now subsidize the entire Ukrainian government that the Ukrainian government must become a proxy state of the American regime in the west. So a lot of this is unfolding. Right now, in Davos. But if you look carefully and if you look closely, there's something that is missing from the conversation amongst the world's elites. In fact, the opposite is actually happening. They are addressing an issue completely and totally incorrectly in the wrong way, and it's an issue that impacts every single person in the world. It's an issue that's happening in front of our very eyes. And in fact, if you go back a couple years on the Charlie Kirk show, I remember we did this podcast back in June or July of 2020. Remember exactly where I was. I was an Aspen Colorado. Where we did this podcast warning about the looming catastrophic and immediate population collapse that is happening in the west and around the world. Put simply in plainly, we are not having enough children. Birth rates are plummeting in the industrialized world. Now we need to ask ourselves the question why are people having less kids? We're going to explore that throughout this hour. But how often do you hear your Republican politicians or people in the news media dive into great detail about the looming population catastrophe in front of you, the disintegration, if you will? Of our ability to continue our species as we know it. The World Economic Forum is talking about every possible fringe issue. But the issue that is front and center, the issue that is so clearly in front of them that they are ignoring is, will our species be able to continue?
Do You Need to Worry About Monkeypox?
"Into the weeds on the monkey pox thing. From what I understand, though, is it spread through incredibly close contact and the sharing of bodily fluids, and so if you're not participating in mass orgies, I think you should be okay. It says here monkey pox, virus is spread via contact with bodily fluids from an infected person, so healthcare workers and family members taking care of suspected cases are at risk of infection. Well, sort of, I think there's a more obvious kind of glaring societal piety they don't want to talk about, which is if you're being overly promiscuous in your personal life, then you might have a chance of getting this. Okay, so it seems as if the cases are rather mild. Again, we don't want to make any firm judgments on this. I mean, viruses can mutate. We've learned that over the last couple of years, we knew it before, but we obviously are reminded of that. But the point is that this doesn't seem to be the type of alarm that everyone is kind of pulling right now. Again, I just find it interesting that the CDC had this in their booklet a couple years ago, brought to you by eco health alliance. We have all the CDC documents they want you to forget about here, and we've got we're thumbing through all of them. Yep, it's right there. Monkeypox in the U.S., that's from a 2017 document. We can put that up on screen. Right there. They come out a whole screen about how this might come to the United States, which is just fear mongering, but the bigger question is what happens if the WHO now says this is a global pandemic. Even though it's very
We're in the Early Stages of a Great Citizen Rising Movement
"You're just beginning to see the early stages of what I believe will be a first a couple year than a multi decade citizen rising movement where all of a sudden the game gets changed permanently, and what a time to be alive. We should still thankful that we get to live through this. And it's the things that it's a thing that historians will write about for generations to come. So what were some of the catalysts that you think that brought about this change that motivated what we're seeing everywhere from the entertainment to media? Yeah, so two things. First is the laws of reality. So we as Christians, we believe in the laws of nature and nature's God. It says that in the Declaration of Independence, but we believe in a God of order. We do not believe in a God of chaos, the enemy says chaos and our lord is a God of order. So when an organization or a movement a celebrity decides to sow chaos against order and they institutionalize it, that will not be rewarded by the laws of nature and nature's
An In-Depth Look at Nina Jankowicz, the 'Disinformation' Specialist
"Jankowicz is now in charge of censoring people's speech from the federal government, but before she said that the executive branch shouldn't have the power to determine what is fake news play cut 16. Imagine that, you know, with president Trump right now calling all of these news organizations that have inconvenient for him stories that they're getting out there that he's calling fake news and now lashing out at platforms. I would never want to see our executive branch. Have that sort of power. She reminds me of Pete Buttigieg. Reminds you of Pete Buttigieg because she was created in the academy. And for a very specific purpose, she was created in the academy because she's there she's basically like a somebody that is there in the branch of government that will never question the hierarchy. That someone within the workings and almost has like a robot, a robotic type of focus on one issue. It's like, you think about it, a disinformation expert, somebody in power, picked up Nina jankovic, a couple years ago, saw that she had some, I guess, I don't quite understand. I don't quite know the word skill, I guess. But she was very likely to obey, right? She wanted approval. I think Nina jankowicz wants approval by other people. And she had an unflinching loyalty to the party line. Someone saw that she had a lot of potential for that. So someone obviously decided to get Nina jankowitz in the right positions, working on the Ukraine desk, working in all sorts of places that eventually Nina jankowicz could have an over promotion just like Pete Buttigieg mayor Pete and they go to these type elite schools. They never say anything disagreeable to the consensus. And they're honestly quite boring. Like if you sat down with Pete Buttigieg or need a jenko, they wouldn't really have an interesting unique thought, right? They just kind of regurgitate what other people would say. They are craft, they
Ukraine vs. Border Wall: What's the Better Investment for America?
"Play another piece of tape here. Senator bob Menendez predicted quote strong bipartisan support for $13 billion of humanitarian military aid to Ukraine, play cut one 15. Today, I hope, on the Senate floor, we will pass a 13 plus $1 billion Ukraine bill that will give them more lethal assistance as well as we see from the pictures that just took place on your program. Humanitarian assistance, and I believe there will be strong bipartisan support for that as well. And then finally, we need to keep finding every way to tighten the noose around Putin's neck so that this barbaric war can stop. So you hear that, senator bob Menendez says we need to spend the $13 billion of this barbaric war can stop. I agree we should try to stop the war. How does supply more weapons stop a war to a weaker opponent? That prolongs a war. And that might be the right choice. Maybe, you know what? We need to make sure Ukraine fights Russia forever till Russia leaves. They're probably not going to leave. Putin has no choice. He's only going to further escalate this. What's the off ramp or our leaders thinking of how we could try to broker peace or try to broker further conflicts of defense contractors can make more money? I just want to play a tape here that just really frustrates me if I could be perfectly honest. Okay. It's from a couple years ago and some people say Charlie, this is unrelated. It's totally related. It's president Trump saying, quote, we're talking about a wall for our country for at most $20 billion. I could do it cheaper. I need about at most $15 billion. And it'll be better than anyone could ever see. So president Trump with a Republican House and Senate was asking for the same amount of money nearly the same amount of money that our Republicans rushed and were enthusiastic to go send to a country in a far distant land that we do not have an allegiance or an alliance to that is corrupt, laundress money and full of oligarchs, and yet when Trump asked for it, no Republican leader was willing to fund a southern border wall as we saw 2 million people cross into our country illegally last year. Play cut one 18. And we're talking about a wall for 20 billion, 15 billion. I could even do a cheaper. I have to. And it'll be better than anybody's ever seen a wall. And so Trump was asking for $20 billion. And ask yourself, what is a better return on the investment for the American people? $14 billion to Ukraine? Or $20 billion for a wall? Which is
If Only We Investigated Russia's Funding of US Anti-Fossil Fuel Groups
"Cool controls Joe Biden. He's a prisoner of many different groups. He's a prisoner of the teacher unions. He's a prisoner of Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Every decision that this administration makes is because of an order given by a group that either helped get him into office that helped implement him into office or that is currently giving him cover fire or is a backbone of the Democrat regime. Well, let's read what one of his, let's say, wardens, believe in because he's a prisoner of somebody. You go to Greenpeace dot org. It says real zero. What is hashtag real zero? Great question Greenpeace writes, first let's start out with net zero a term you've probably heard before. Burn now pay later. Nations of the world pledged in 2015 Paris climate agreement to collectively achieve net zero carbon emissions, globally by 2050. Climate scientists say we must hit net zero to avoid climate catastrophe. It's a goal we should all support. The term net zero is also being exploited by governments and corporations who are using it as smoke screen to keep burning phosphor fuel fossil fuels via a loophole called carbon offset credits. So instead, they want real zero, not net zero. The only way out of the climate crisis is to get to net zero. Real zero equals net zero minus offsets. It means reducing and stopping all carbon emissions before they are put into the atmosphere. It means full speed ahead to a transformation of our energy and transport systems to 100% renewable sources. This is Greenpeace dot org. No more fossil fuel burning, no offsetting scams. This is the website you can see it for yourself. It's Greenpeace dot org. Sierra club is very similar. Now again, we've gone through in great detail, the evidence that shows that Russia has been funding green energy groups. We should be having criminal investigations into how Russia has been covertly funding of these anti fossil fuel groups, the hill dot com calls for this. Investigate Russia's covert funding of U.S. anti fossil fuel groups makes you wonder how successful the green energy groups would have been, the last couple years, if our government actually spent time investigating legitimate Russian collusion instead of whether or not Donald Trump had any sort of ties to the Russian Kremlin, which of course he didn't.

Everything You Need to Know About Hillary Clinton's Spygate
"So John Durham files this motion, basically accusing Michael sussman who's been indicted for a line to the FBI of a conflict of interest. Now, why this was filed when it was filed is a question that cash Patel is going to answer for us later this hour. I'm not exactly sure. We could speculate, but I'm going to tell you what's in it, and I'm going to tell you some of the immediate takeaways. So in this filing, so many of the suspicions that we've had all along came to light. Now, you heard Donald Trump say many times. They spied on my campaign. They spied on my campaign. So we thought that that was limited to the fisa court application, which was a big deal, by the way. Using the fisa domestic courts to try and obtain a warrant to spy on a presidential candidate, a la or via Carter page was a massive violation of the Fourth Amendment constitutional orthodoxy and due process as we know it. And that story has been unraveling for a couple years. It's been drip drip drip leak leak leak. And without John Durham we'd never get to the bottom of it. But to be honest, I thought that was kind of the extent of it. I thought we had this kind of all mapped out. We had Hillary Clinton that paid fusion GPS multiples of millions of dollars, that money was then used. To try and concoct the Russian narrative, we know that there was involvement with that Russian woman who pretended to be in charge of an adoption agency who came and met with Donald Trump Jr. meetings were a big part of this. This was a collusion scheme. We know that. But what we suspected and what we didn't know was the extent of what Hillary Clinton did personally to continue this operation. So what we have is a timeline issue. You see the other side would say, yeah, okay, they tried to get a fisa warrant, but it's because there was a lot of intelligence and they'd created this dirty dossier and, you know, and then Trump became president and then we left it at that. But it's much deeper than that. And it's so. It's so reprehensible what these people did.
Rep. Nancy Mace Faces New Challenger Following Disloyalty to Trump
"Story that's breaking in my home state of South Carolina. Of course, Nancy mace is the representative from the first congressional south congressional district of South Carolina. She was initially supportive supported by Donald Trump. When she beat Joe Cunningham, the Democrat, a couple years ago. Nancy mace has since turned on Donald Trump, so she is now being challenged, announced just this week, by Katie errington, the Republican who Trump has endorsed this week,

"last couple years" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"It's I don't know. I think it's the funniest thing ever that Jones got taken by McCarthy here. It's so funny, right? Because that's the one guy right like that. You should not be able to get over on his Jarrah, Jarrah man, Jared Jeffries old school Jarrah. Jarrah built himself up from nothing and he got worked by McCarthy. Because of that video, a big Mick sitting in his big farm with his friends. The other members of that SWAT team studying trends having their meetings meeting every week like they were real coaching staff, and it worked. Dude. Not only did he get back into the NFL as a head coach, he got the premier job in the NFL as a head coach. He got over on that old guy. Yeah, I'm wondering for all the people that actually had access to that barn. Did they actually look on the VHS tapes to see if there's actually anything on them or the actual pictures and the binders to see if there was actually organized with new trained thoughts? Because The guy who was too busy getting rubbed his rubbed down his final season in Green Bay to actually coach all of a sudden becomes the football, workaholic numbers and EQ savant that Dallas just hired is the funniest thing I've ever heard. You love that, Dude, It's coming. It's coming. What about Dak? To your point about, you know? How do you throw this guy into the fire? Well, I mean, no, he didn't get any Reps or snaps in the preseason, but he did have that bad wing if you had to guess is there any way this guy exploded his ankle? It was a devastating injury. He's got that bad wing if there's anybody that I would trust It's Dak. But how do you know? And then we know that front seven. You know they're coming from am any idea how Dak shows up? Well, that's the worry too, right? I mean, if he does show up and he is himself, you said it earlier with Zack Martin. They put it in an average player was Zack Martin is probably the best right guard in the NFL. He is a Hall of Famer. In that line, like, look the last couple years, not last year because they were banged up with injury. It's not the best line in football anymore. At its best. It's probably top five, and Zack Martin is the most talented guy there. So you don't have them against that front seven of the Buccaneers and even the Buccaneers got Joe trying who's a rookie who is going to be a great ballplayer. They have more and more pass rush than they had last year, too, so I don't know how he shows up. There's a lot of factors that are working against them. I do love his weapons, but again if you can't block It's hard to get the ball to him. He's got guys to throw the football, too. There's no doubt about that. And I think this is concerned about the Tampa Bay secondary. That's garbage man. That's ass. He's got some young, but they showed up big. In fact, they had as much to do with that Super Bowl win as anybody. I love that secondary. And you know, the feeling themselves Quickly. Better to Yeah, they're gonna get better. Let me hit Refresh. We'll see one more time. Still minus nine. You have any interest in the over under? What's the number? You see there? I see 51 a half there. I'm not going to hit that a couple of plays. I might take a I'll look at the I think 2.5 touchdown passes for Tom Brady. I'll go over there. I'll go small on that. But I'm not going to touch the 51 a half. It's.

"Have you been sleeping with brandi. Glanville basically in the middle of dinner on a cast trip and richly greet to do overseas right this friend. And you're not only like putting them on the spot but also like potentially outing them. Yeah right and denise richards tried to fix fix that by just shouting bravo which like so think about. The housewives is that there are very rarely breaks in the fourth wall. in fact The fourth wall being broken. That means something good is over the last couple years so a lot more fourth wall breaking. Yeah that's how you know it's been getting good. Actually there's some iconic kind of fourth wall breaking in the past but yes so she just starts shouting bravo because she thinks that means that they'll kind of cut out this footage and she's talking about how she's a married woman and she was not having an affair and it turns into a whole thing it's like stretched over a few episodes and then brandi glanville is continuing to insist that this happened and denise over corrects and is not even just like this didn't happen but i barely know this woman were not friends. We're not close and there's tons of evidence to the contrary She full commits. It's to just like who is she. I don't know and like all these texts being like. I love you like like see soon and like they did. Donald trump nose the coffee guy where she could have fixed. And that's the thing about the house is like a lot of them get caught lying on camera all the time which is interesting. Because sometimes they'll be literal proof otherwise like the role the tapes quite litter and be like no said this before or they just like hoover correct to the lie to the point where it's just like well now. We know this disturbing. It's like you didn't have to say like oh. I've never met this woman like there's so much there's a whole scene between them where they get like dinner on the show before the come out and there'd be cut to it a lot so that that's like the daydream of denise richards and it turned into a whole thing she left the show she continued to deny it. She's no longer friends with arena. It is intended to have kind of ripple effects and it still comes up in the current season. So are you ready for potentially bravo to cast an actual open an out lesbian. Or would that ruin the franchise like do you like watching these straight women and escaping into their antics belligerents. Just lake out of control storylines or would you wanna see like a lesbian and let her face. That same scrutiny. We all give watching the housewives. I definitely nitsana cause so technically orange county does have a lesbian now. She came out later though. Like she's been on the show for a while and then came out and that i don't really follow.

"You know, if it's in his hand, he plants it and it's a very good year. The harvest is great, and he gets truckloads and truckloads of ears of corn. It's just a wonderful harvest. And he says to the tax man, I'd rather you tax my see that little bit of seed, then my harvest because the harvest is quite large. Got it well on an IRA They're taxing the harvest, right? You're just you're not paying taxes on a little bit you put in, but it grows quite large is taxable. And the thing you've got to be aware of is taxes are probably going to go up significantly the future Because of this stimulus programs of debt, the constant printing of money. All these issues have gone on for years and years and years eventually has to be paid back. And it's done through taxes. So if I can elect to pay my taxes now, while rates are lower and grow that money tax free like a Roth, then you're taxing the seed and not the harvest. You see how that works? Yes, exactly. It's very important. I can tell you that. I just sat with a couple. Very, very nice couple. Both physicians. So good owners, right and we sat together and they heard me talking about taxes. And they said, I want to sit with you and talk about how to reduce our taxes. And we did a review on their portfolio. Everything. We got everything in order for him. In the end, I showed them both how to do Ross and they said to me My CPA said. We cannot do this. And I said, Let's call your c p A. And we called the C P on the phone together. We discussed this. He said. You know what? Robert? You're right. Absolutely. We can do this. And they are now using Roths contributions on what that means. Is that all that growth? And their income and retirement from that account. And when they pass away and leave it to their kids, no taxes, right. No taxes. And when done properly, I think we might be able to create for you a tax free or very low tax retirement. I mean, how about building your strategy? So that when your retirement you don't have to pay taxes? How great would that be? Awesome? Yes. There's so many great opportunities here. So you have the ability to make a Roth contribution and my view. That is the best If you can do that, okay, And it isn't really income related. It's more about the type of plan that you're running. Okay. Got it whether or not you can do it. What Christine events was talking about, which is very smart as a backdoor Roth, But I got to tell you that under the President Obama administration, they changed the rules on this, and it's very complicated. So you want to make sure you have good help on doing it Backdoor Roth, But what a backdoor Roth is, as you put your money. Into an IRA. There are no income limits on IRA contributions. You might was the deductibility, but you can always make it. Okay. And then you switch that contribution the next day into a Roth and long behold you did was called a backdoor Roth, okay? The mechanism is quite simple. You put your money in an IRA. Don't deduct it on your return because you're gonna put in a Roth anyways. And you're just creating paperwork you put in a Roth, but the issue becomes are certain. Qualifications that are required and it's basically a worksheet. You have to do to make sure that this is smart to do. This is what we can help our listeners with. If you're concerned about future taxes like I am, you're concerned about that debt and how it's going to affect you and your Children. Then you want to start thinking about tax strategies. Now do this. While rates are well when you can still do it. And we'll show you how to build a tax friendly future. If that's the way to say it. There's so many things. There's so many strategies available to you to reduce your taxes now. Reduce them in the future, Okay and reduce them for your beneficiaries when you pass away because you don't want them getting clobbered on taxes, too. And so one of things that were great, and I gotta tell you I love doing this. I love during this Uncle Sam isn't really spending our money in the way I would want him to write. I don't know that these people in Washington D C really care about spending our money or not, They just spend it on whatever they want and So I love showing people how to reduce their taxes. Just imagine being able to pay less taxes now less taxes and retirement and your kids pay West taxes down the road. I mean, that is a home run for everybody. It's something that I think we can all at least have the goal to work towards to like you were saying, potentially reducing, if not having a tax free retirement, Of course, the tax planning process. It is one of the many steps covered in the CPR. The complete plan Review there that you do at the hardwood financial group. Tell us about that process. Whether the planning review is great are Westerners. We had calls all the time on this. You just want to come in and get a review on their finances and their accounts. Make sure you're in bed. Testing properly, that you're getting a good return us. And the market has been wonderful for the last couple years. If you haven't been making good money, there's something wrong there. So let's look at it. Make sure your position properly. When we're talking about the investments in getting everything working. We can also talk about taxes and how you can lower your taxes, maybe now or in the future, And we can get all this done in this program. We call CPR complete planning Review. And it's very easy. Just call. We have someone waiting by the phone right now. And just as I was listening to Robert, I'd like to come in and talk about taxes or investments or look things over. However, we can help..

"But, you know, a lot of people are also hand wringing about exchange. Eo being a part of this process on I'm actually in support of the danger of being and part of this process because I think But you you could prevent the has success. They're going after some sort of relationship with the PM on, If you think that's one of the better thing he's got going for him in the last couple years is his relationship with John. Anyway, Do you want this person to have a relationship? With their boss, but that's exactly the same thing that's going to come up. If there's a new owner here is you're bringing in a person. I do person who doesn't necessarily have a relationship with them, so I don't necessarily think they would fire them right away. It's not. It's just not a good situation for organizational ability, which is obviously, uh, has been a constant problem for the Broncos for a little while then. Well, that Z Let's delve into that little bit further, because I think you're correct in a sense in and there hasn't But is this the time for stability? I mean, is there a short of blowing everything up? Which also would lead instability is Don't you want some semblance of continuity while at the same time some semblance of advocating responsibility in the case of John Elway or is you know I mean, what is the What's the cure here? The cure is an owner on do we just don't know how soon that's going? Tol come along, But, yeah, I mean, like I said in my tweet doesn't preclude them from getting it right. You know, all those people that are going to be in that room are smart people who have been involved with Paul for a long time on then, obviously only want the best thing for the Broncos. So no one here is, you know, out there trying to hire that GM. You know, John, I was not trying to hire that. GM. So he doesn't get his legacy You served or something like that. You know, crazy talking to people have talked about with John only not wanting a great quarterback to come in on her His legacy. Um it's just It's just not idea on and the Broncos just aren't in an ideal position, and hopefully hopefully it works out my questions. I wanna ask you guys it. What do you think of the idea of Britain, Poland being and I'm the meeting, even if it's you know, not as the owner, but just someone who Gives their opinion. She's part of the organization. Well, I mean, that's a that's a good question. And, you know, Joe Ellis did talk about it a little bit. In his press conference, he said that she's going to help with the research on the candidates, but she wouldn't be directly involved with the meetings. But I sort of failed to believe that she won't have it least. Ah, periphery view of it, then. Well, I think here's Here's the reason you don't have her in there because of lawsuits pending. If that lawsuit wasn't out there that I think she would be. But in her current responsibility and title in the Broncos, it would not actually make sense for her to sit in on those meetings. And so what They're trying to do Everything, quote unquote by the book and so like helping with the research is kind of a wink and a nod to she's involved in the process. But we're not, you know, And so that's it's to satisfy the, uh I'm not gonna name a particular names, but the two siblings that have the lawsuit versus there everybody else in the family that you know, agrees that the trust is valid. Um, that that's the reason. Right, And so you know, it's Z. If you bring her into the meeting, there's a look. This has been, You know, it's been telegraphed the entire right which makes them Again, it goes back. It's a shame that there's just all of this all these questions surrounding the Broncos, and I just think it makes this process a little harder and hopefully You know, Like I said, Hopefully they get this higher right there. Great. The new owner comes in and says This is awesome. Um, but you know, it. Just it raises questions about the you know the future viability of this scenario. Ryan Koenigsberg from D NPR. Joining us the D M V R. It makes you check out there. The fantastic work the NPR sports. Let me ask you about drew locked because, of course, the quarterback is gonna be a massive topic this off season and, you know, we'll have plenty of chances as we're gonna have you guys on Wednesdays to do these things, but the way he finished the season Finally, the offense didn't have a turnover game. They actually were plus four and still lost, which is kind of wild, But I like having fancy but Avery really quick. I would never get to this but pointing out how they're minus three against the Jets, and they even though there was even a defensive pick six touchdown, and they still won that game. So you know, weird stuff happens. But anyway, there plus for it's exactly what you kind of wanted to see in the season without the turnover on offense and a bunch of turnovers on defense. But yet I think a lot of people kind of felt empty about it. What did you feel about the way the season ended? And especially when it comes to what you saw from drew lock? In the hours following the game had to keep reminding myself that the Broncos lost, um because my attitude towards the way that they hope the whole thing played out was extremely positive. It was great from Drew, or at least very good from Drew. He showed that he could have a no turnover game. The Broncos, you know, in general played well. And they also, you know, save themselves from falling back positions of the draft. Security stopped in traffic. I thought I thought everything worked out really well there. Um, and again, you know, the conversation throughout this often get lost. It's not about is drew up great right now because he's not Hey, trended up pretty well it towards the end of the season. The conversation is came to rock the great later on. I think that's where the big divided I am along the side of I think throughout can't be great at some point in his career and and hopefully sooner rather than later. On by think that you saw at the end of the evening. I really helpful to that..
"last couple years" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Our next guest, says 2021 Outlook for North American life insurers is challenging from where we want to welcome Bloomberg intelligence industry analyst Jeffrey Flynn. Jeff I can kind of think, like a million reasons, why would be challenging but give me like the strongest one of why Next year's gonna be rough. Well, you know, it's really I mean, just the low rate environment is very, very challenging for life Insurers, You know, obviously, rates have come back up a little bit in the last few weeks, but they're just extremely low historically, and they're down. Several 100 basis points over the last couple years, and that just really puts pressure on their portfolio yields and I think we've got kind of like new money is sort of going on the books that about 3.5% and the roll off. Is it about four or 5%? That's really the biggest factor. There's some other Other reasons, I would note the work site and group sort of insurance businesses have also been a real growth driver in recent years, but those alone facing headwinds to in the coming years, with employment being under pressure. And also, um In the works like this. It's just been hard to get into work sites to make sales. So I would cite those are the two biggest reasons so it Jeff. Just give us Ah sense of how the covert 19 has impacted the insurance business. It's obviously very clear when you look at maybe airlines or cruise ships, but less clear when you look at some of the financial services sector is what's been the impact on Insurance business. Yeah, I mean, that's that's really very much true. I mean, it's been very interesting. It's really been a fairly modest impact, not modest, but but not a huge impact on earnings. You know a moderate impact on earnings in the balance sheet impact. Has been very, very low, and one of the things that reflects is that I'm just speaking in terms of claims here, the claims they're very well spread out. Market share is very diverse in life insurance. Very few companies have more than 5% share in mutuals, private companies actually have about 35% market share. So the claims impact has been very well spread out. Um the other pressure has really been meant. Alluded to this before has really been the sales headwind. Um Have. I mentioned that that's really pressured from work site businesses because it's been harder to sort of offices have been closed it Z just more difficult to get into companies to make sales but also on with Interest rates having come down pricing Buy life insurance companies on some of their policies. They've had to boost the prices on their policies to make the same returns. So that's also going to hurt sales because consumers are just getting less sort of coverage for further further money. Listen, I thought that everyone would be like jamming to go get life insurance and then in the middle of cof it seriously like we have a pandemic head. You don't know who's going to get exposed. I would think this would be like a must have product. Well, you know, And I guess I sort of I should should note that we've really seen among mid market life insurers. The companies there. Really focused on the mid market. Overall life insurance penetration is about 50, or 60% of the U. S. But it's much considerably higher for higher net worth clients and quite lower sort of in the mid market. So companies You know, I'll just throw it like a pro America or Globe life. Those companies have seen their sales come up come up quite a bit for exactly what you're saying. The awareness around the need for financial protection has really has really jumped. And combined with the low penetration. I think that that trend in the mid market specifically well, we'll probably go on for At least a couple more years. I would guess Jeff, give us a sense of the market structure in the life insurance business. I'm in terms of is this one of the sectors within financial services that Potentially could be right for some consolidation activity. Yeah, No, there's no question ball. I mean, they're they're definitely I think will be one of the things that's happened again with the low interest rate environment. It's really Force management teams to take a hard look at their businesses. You know, sort of what business are we at scale and where can we make a good return? And where? Where's the business? Too Risky, And I think a couple areas where we could see consolidation. A lot of the life insurance companies play an asset management and retirement for one K businesses. I think we've already seen consolidation there. And I think Well, Seymour, um you know, one company I would mention company like Ameriprise is probably looking to get bigger. NASA administer definitely there. Another area that we've seen, Interestingly, is kind of picked up sort of private equity has shown an interest and sort of taking high risk variable annuity policies. Life insurers will re insure that over to a private equity firm. We saw equitable, do a deal there and I think we could see More of that activity, which is positive for life insurance since it frees up some capital for them, you know, one other point That's worth noting is that we do a I G recently announced on that they were gonna be splitting their life insurance business off from PNC. That probably going to come as an I P O and 2021, which which is, you know a very big idea for the sector. And at the same time Credential U. K is gonna do the same thing with Jackson National, So there's definitely A lot of moving pieces for life insurance. And I think that sort of transaction activity. Reinsurance activity could be kind of a key value driver for the sector we actually saw right met life. Sold their PNC business a few weeks ago, and oftentimes that proceeds from those sales are directed to repurchase is so I think that's going to be a really key theme for the group in 21. That's interesting. Let me let me ask you really nerdy question. And this guess could apply to re insurers to how our contracts changing whether it's insurance. For businesses or for individuals or even for reinsurers in light of the pandemic like that. I have read a lot, and I heard a lot about.
