Finding Your Source of Confidence, Strength and Security
"Extremely important to be confident. You know, they say the difference between a confident person and an arrogant person is that a confident person has nothing to prove, but an arrogant person appears to have to prove that they're confident. Isn't that funny? Now you got to know who you are. You got to know what you want to do and you got to figure out how to do it, but you got to be confident. And it's not that kind of confidence where you fake it till you make it. I mean, you've got to be confident. You know, you've got to be confident and I can make this thing work. When my phone didn't ring for two weeks, I was still confident I could make this thing work. At the time, all I had to do was just go out and work harder and meet more people and make my phone ring and that's what I did. So I also had, I had personally, my strength came from my faith in Jesus Christ. That's where I get my strength today from my faith in my Lord and Savior. And that's not for everyone and that's okay, but you've got to get your strength from something or someone in order to make it through the obstacles and the failures you're going to have. So, you've also got to be secure in being who you are at any time in your growth. You know, when I started joining some groups and I was just doing somewhere around 400 ,000 a year and I was joining groups sitting at tables with guys that were doing 4 million a year or 2 million, 3 million, 4 million, some higher than that, I still had to be confident sitting at that table. You know why? Because I realized everybody at that table started somewhere and I was okay with where I was. Now, I wanted to be larger for sure, but I was okay. I was a sponge around that table. I was learning and they learned a few things from me, but I was learning. And if you take a quick look at some very, very successful companies and the owners and founders of the company, you'll find they started with very little too. So let's take a look at them right now. Put them up on the screen. Let's take a look at Steve Jobs. I mean, Steve Jobs started in his dad's garage, as you know, if you've watched any of the Steve Jobs movies. How about Elon Musk? Take a look at that guy. He started in a small office in his house. And then there's Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos started... Look at that office. I mean, he started somewhere. I mean, Amazon wasn't an existence. It wasn't around. It wasn't... He started it. See, he started small and started selling books. You know why he started selling books? Because he figured it out that books could be shipped for about the same price. So it was an easy shipping. And then he went to CDs and DVDs, which was actually easier shipping. So that's what he started with and why. Isn't that kind of funny? And then of course, you know where Amazon's at today. Okay. So everybody starts somewhere and normally it's pretty small. So long story short, you got to be secure where you're at in your growth.

Successful People Don't Get Stuck on Failure
"Second year in my business, second year, not first year, not first month, second year in business, my phone didn't ring for two weeks. And a lot of people were saying, what are you going to do? I mean, you know, how are you going to make this work? Your phone's not ringing. What are you going to do? I could have easily quit. I could have easily tapped out right there. And then a few years later, I didn't tap out. It's gradually started growing. And my sixth year in business, I was applying for a building loan because we had plans to build a new building to get out of the garage that we had built the second year in business. And I went to five banks, five banks. They said, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way. And I could have easily thrown in the towel, tapped out right there. But I didn't. The sixth, the bank said, yes. And we were in business. I mean, we were building a building. And I got, you know, I got all the walls built on that building and I hired a contractor and we had to do a lot of, remove a lot of trees and do all the foundational work and all that kind of stuff. But they were putting the walls up and got all four walls up and they didn't have them supported well. And one Saturday they collapsed. Yeah, that's, a lot of people would have thrown in a towel right there because it's just, I don't give up easily. The contractor, it was his fault. He didn't have them supported properly. He fixed it, ended up building the building, blah, blah, blah. So you know, things happen. The list, my list of obstacles and failures go on and on and on and on and on. And successful people, they don't get stuck on failure. Failure is just part of the process to succeeding. And that's what you got to know.

Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College. All things Hillsdale at hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there, and of course, to listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues. All of them at hillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt. Inside the Beltway this morning, I'm so glad you joined me. I want to talk with you about this book. David Brooks's brand new How to Know a Person, The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen. David joins me now. Hello, David. How are you? It's good to be with you again. It's good to talk to you. David, I'm used to getting books, and I got yours for free. They get sent to me. I want to tell you I'm going to buy six copies of How to Know a Person, three for my children and their spouses, and three for friends who are no longer friends that I want them to read. I wonder if you've had other people tell you that they're going to be buying your book to give to other people. Yeah, thank you for being generous on Twitter about the book. I appreciate it. Yeah, no, I've had people buy it for all their employees. I've had people buy it for the families. I haven't heard about buying it for ex -friends, but it's a good strategy. It is. We just live in these brutalizing times. It is. And my book is supposed to be a missile directed right at that. It's about the precise skills of how do you get to know someone, how do you make them feel respected, seen, heard. How do you make them feel respected, seen, and heard? I know why my friends are not my friends anymore. It's because of Donald Trump. They thought me insufficiently outraged about Donald Trump, and I can't bridge that gap, right? I can't be other than what I am, which is I voted for him twice, and if he's the nominee, I'll vote for him again. But they don't understand it, and I don't know that they're trying to understand. I don't understand them either, but I think How to Know a Person has assisted me. So, congratulations. Let me also tell you, I told our mutual friend Bob Barnett that I was telling people about your book in Miami as I prepared for the debate, because my wife and I talked about one statistic in particular, one paragraph actually, on page 98. Thirty -six percent of Americans reported they felt lonely frequently or almost all of the time, including 61 percent of young adults, 51 percent of young mothers. The percentage of Americans who said they have no close friends quadrupled between 1990 and 2020. 54 percent of Americans reported that no one knows them well. That is an extraordinary raft of terrible news, David. Yeah, and I found it's hard to build a healthy democracy on top of a rotting society, and so when this people are filled with loneliness and sadness, it turns into meanness, because if you feel yourself unseen, invisible, there's nothing crueler than feeling that people think you don't exist, and you get angry, and you lash out, and we have these school shootings. We have bitter politics. We've got the brutality of what's happening on college campuses right now, where Jewish students are being blockaded out of classrooms or have the recipients of genocidal how to build a friendship, how to make people feel that you're included, and these are basic social skills like the kind you could be taught at like learning carpentry or tennis or something like that. It's how do you listen well, how do you disagree well, how do you sit with someone who's got depression, how do you sit with someone who's contemplating suicide, how do you sit with someone who disagrees with you fundamentally on issues, and I just try to walk through the basic skills, and in my view, there in any group of people, there are two sorts. There's diminishers, the people who stereotype ignore, they don't ask you questions, they just don't care about you, and then there's another sort of person who are illuminators, and they are curious about you, they respect you, they want to know your life story, and they make you feel lit up and heard, and my goal in writing the book was partly social, because we need these skills to be a decent society, and partly personal. I just want to be better at being an illuminator. I think it comes through in the book. I listened to your interview with Katie Couric and her colleague, who I don't know, and they were trying to get at a question a couple of times, I'm gonna try and land that plane. Why did David Brooks write this book? Well, I'll give you the personal reason. You know, some people, if anybody watched Fiddler on the Roof, you know how warm and huggy Jewish families can be. I grew up in the other kind of Jewish family, and our culture was think Yiddish, act British, so we had love in the home. We just didn't express it. We were not a huggy family. We were all cerebral up here, and then when I was 18, the admissions officers at Columbia, Wesleyan, and Brown decided to actually go to the University of Chicago, which was also a super cerebral place. My favorite thing about Chicago, it's a Baptist school where atheist professors teach Jewish students St. Thomas Aquinas, and so I went into the world of journalism where we just Frederick Buechner once put it, if you cut yourself off from true connection with others, you may save yourself a little pain because you won't be betrayed, but you're cutting yourself off from the holy sources of life itself, and so I just wanted to be better at being intimate with other people. I've heard you now three times, read in your book, heard you tell it to Katie, and heard you tell it to me, the anecdote about the University of Chicago, the anecdote about Yiddish and British, but what is new is you brought up Buechner, and I've never read Buechner. I now know his backstory, which is so tragic. You include it in the book. I did not know he had a tragic backstory that illumines his character for me, and maybe I will go and read it, but you're in interview mode. How many different book interviews have you done? Uh, probably 20 or more. I don't know a lot. You're definitely, I know what that's like, where you want to get through an interview, and you want to make sure that people, you land the point, and I want to get a little bit deeper than that. I want to find out if you're with your self -examination. There's been a David Brooks self -examination underway for a long time, but you have not yet written your book about God. Are you going to go there? Yeah, well, at the end of The Second Mountain, I wrote a book about my spiritual journey, and how I grew up, my phrase was religiously bisexual, so I grew up in a Jewish home, but I went to a church school, and I went to a church camp, so I had the story of Jesus in my God. And then when I was 50 or so, reality seemed porous to me. It seemed like we're not just a bunch of physical molecules. You know, I once, I was in subway in New York City in God's ugliest spot on the face of the earth, and I look around the subway car, and I see all these people, and I decide all these people have souls. There's some piece of them that has no size, weight, color, or shape, but gives them infinite value and dignity, and their souls could be soaring, their souls could be hurting, but all of us have them. And once you have the concept of the soul in your head, it doesn't take long before the concept of God is in your head. And so I went off, especially about 10 years ago, and it's still going on a spiritual journey of just trying to figure out what do I believe? And I learned when you're on a journey like that, Christians give you books, and so I got like 700 books sent to me, only 350 of which were different copies of Christianity by C .S. Lewis. And so that was my journey. And it didn't, it was very slow and gradual. There were some dramatic moments, but not a lot. But I realized, oh, I'm not an atheist anymore, and my heart has opened up to something. And I think this book is the extension of that. When your heart opens up to God, and if every person you meet, you think this person was made in the image of God, I'm looking at somebody so important, Jesus was willing to die for that person, then I've got to show them the respect that God would show them. I've got to try to see them with the eyes that Jesus would see them with. And that's a super high standard that I'm not going to meet, but it's a goal. And Jesus says, even in brutal, tough times, He sees people, He sees the poor. And the main thing He does is Jesus is always asking questions. Somebody asks Him a question, He asks them a question back. And that act of questioning, what you do for a living, that's a show of respect. And that's the doorway to seeing someone. And so to me, I think questions are a moral act that we're phenomenal at when we're kids. And then we get a little worse at it. And I come sometimes leave a party and think that whole time nobody asked me a question. And I've come to think like only 30 % of the people in the world are question askers. And so part of the thing I do in the book is just try to say, here are some generous things to do to ask people questions. It is a, that is the key takeaway, how to ask questions. And this is a skill set. I sent a note this morning to my friend, Jan Janur, who has been running a Christian ministry for 30 years called The Wild Adventure. He wrote a book called Turning Small Talk into Big Talk. And I was reminded of it. Yours is a longer, more complicated examination of the art of asking questions and why you want to do so. It's also, it reminded me a lot of C .S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory. You have never met an ordinary human being. Everyone is an eternal horror, an everlasting splendor, and you believe that and you get to it. And I want to talk about how one gets there, but I want to begin, interestingly enough, with a comment Katie Couric made you. And I listened to that yesterday. I'd finished your book last week and I made my notes last night. And then I listened to Katie Couric interview. She spontaneously brought up her interview with Sarah Palin. Why do you think she did that, David? I like Katie a lot. And she's been a guest on my show. I loved her memoir, at least the first two thirds of it, which was about her younger life, which I thought was fascinating. Why do you think she brought up the Sarah Palin interview? I was also struck by that because I don't think she talks about it enough. I know Katie from various things and I don't think she talks about it all that much. I think it was a time when she was asking questions and somebody just wasn't answering. It was a time when she was having a miscommunication. I imagine that's why she wrote up. Do you have another theory? I do. I think it's because she's been misunderstood because of that question and that she wants people who only know Katie Couric because of that question to know that that's not Katie Couric. And that, to me, it was it made perfect sense she used to be known. And that's the central theme of this. People want to be seen. They want to be known. And if you are known for the wrong thing, in this case, the Katie Couric Sarah Palin interview, you want to you want to get that off your cargo ship, right? You want that unloaded. And I thought, wow, you really the book worked on her. Let me tell you also, on page 134, you talk about face experiments with infants. I want them outlawed. David, what did you think when you read it? I think those are cruel and awful. Tell people about them. Yeah, so babies come out of the womb wanting to be seen. Baby's eyes, they see everything 18 inches away in sharpness. Everything else is kind of blurry because they want to see mom's face. And these experiments that you referred to are called still face experiments. The babies send a bid for attention. And the moms are instructed, don't respond, just be still face. And in the beginning, the babies are uncomfortable. And then after a few seconds, they start writhing around. And five within seconds, they're in total agony, because nobody is seeing them. And I really don't think that's that much different as adults. I think when we're unseen, it is just total agony. We're rendered invisible. And that's what I encounter in my daily life as a reporter. I used to go to the Midwest. I live on the East Coast, but I spent a lot of time in the Midwest. And maybe 10, 15 years ago, once a day, somebody would say, you guys think we're flyover country. In the last five years, I hear that like 10 times a day. And so a lot of just people feel they're invisible. And frankly, that's a little on my profession, the media. When I started as a police reporter in Chicago, we had working class folks in the newsroom. Our reporters, they hadn't gone to college. They were just regular people from Chicago, and they covered crime alongside me. Now, if you go to newsrooms, especially in New York, DC, LA, San Francisco, it's not only everybody went to college, everyone went to the same like 15 elite colleges, and a lot of the same prep schools. So if you're not in this little group, and you look at the national media, and you don't see yourself, it's as if they're telling you your voice doesn't matter. You don't exist. And that's a form of dehumanization that we've allowed to fester in this country. And of course, people are going to lash out. Yeah, I just spent two weeks with really wonderful professionals at NBC preparing for this debate. And at one point, I asked one of my colleagues in this exercise, I don't work for NBC, how many people do you think in this room voted for Trump? And taken aback, they did not answer because the answer is obvious. Nobody. And if if your newsroom is full of 100 % people not only didn't vote for Trump, but actually loathe them, you can't cover the country. It's impossible because you're not seeing the other 50%. And what your book is, I hope the newsroom is distributed as well. We are all about seeing people who have long been marginalized, and that is important. But if you don't see people who are supporting Donald Trump, for whatever reason, you can't cover the news. Let me ask you about this Philip Lewis fellow. I love him, because he finally gave me the courage to teach the do the Dormant Commerce Clause in the 11th Amendment with the confidence that even though my students are terribly bored, they have to know this. Where did you meet Philip Lewis? Because he's talking to teachers. Teachers need to read this book too, if only to be comforted in the fact that every teacher has this experience.
A highlight from The Best Altcoins To Buy This Week! (Act Fast)
"This may not be the optimal market to start DCAing into coins for long -term holds, but right now is the optimal time for trading with a lot of amazing trade setups presenting themselves every single week. So in today's video, I'm going to run through the 14, yes, 14 trade setups, all of which are long setups this week, because you know what happens when you try to fight the trend, you get wrecked. This is a market where as long as the uptrend lasts, is your friend until the end of the trend. And that means we long more than we short. So today I have 14 long setups I want to discuss with you. Most of the setups are a little bit shorter term, like mostly focused on this week, but a couple are a little bit longer term, I would say like in the three to four month range. Not focusing on super long term trades here, but still definitely going to have some alpha for you in today's video as to what altcoins I think could be part of a rotation. As we're seeing right now, basically narratives hop from narrative to narrative as traders seem to be rotating profits into different sectors. And we're going to discuss where I think that rotation could take us. 14 very different altcoins in today's show. We're going to cover a couple narratives like gaming, like ZK, and hopefully you enjoy. Smash the like button if you are enjoying the content at the moment. Let's just start with Bitcoin. An interesting observation to make on Bitcoin is that the last time it had four consecutive weekly candles in a row to the upside, as you can see, like we have currently gotten, it actually did this in early January and ended up reversing for two weeks before continuing an uptrend. So I mean, just because it happened once doesn't mean we're necessarily going to get like a sustained pullback now. But I think what needs to happen and what the market is already starting to show us with weekly open here is that Bitcoin needs a little bit of a cooldown. Now a cooldown is not bad for altcoins. A cooldown, if Bitcoin just moves sideways, maybe a little bit down is actually good for altcoins because it gives the alt some breathing room. It takes the wind out of Bitcoin sales a little bit and gives the alt some room to run. So what I want to see longer term is definitely a sustained increase in Bitcoin dominance that shows liquidity is flowing into Bitcoin. And then eventually I want to see that siphon off into the alts. So I actually want to see dominance pushing up to 60 % for a really healthy market. So altcoins can have a sustained run. But for now, if Bitcoin just cools and alts run a little bit, that's okay for now. Another interesting thing to note is that Bloomberg analysts still expect a 90 % chance of a Bitcoin spot ETF approval by the 10th of January. At the moment, the SEC has another five days to approve an ETF. If they don't approve it, then they're going to have to delay until January. So we could see an approval this week. I don't think this will be the case, but it is a possibility given the fact this week we are in an approval window. So definitely look for some volatility on Bitcoin. All right, let's get into the official list of altcoins that I'm looking at my weekly watch list. By the way, this is a show that I've been doing pretty much every week, but obviously now there's extra attention on the show because we're finally getting some market movers. If you looked at my watch list last week, basically I think six out of the seven tokens that I listed all ended up in profits. We had some amazing trades from that watch list. So congratulations to everyone that got involved there. Hopefully from this week's watch list, similarly, we have some good trades that come out of this one as well. The first place I want to start is ThorChain. What you need to understand about ThorChain is that it's the ultimate bull market token. Because of its reflexive mechanism, the more capital that goes into Roon, basically the better the yields end up being because they need to incentivize LPs to stake tokens in the pools to balance out the Roon LP because Roon is pumped in price, right? So when you have a higher APR, a lot of people ape into Roon, increasing the TVL. We can see the TVL is skyrocketing at the moment, as you can see here. And what that means is that Roon has this really explosive effect, this compounding effect, this flywheel when the market starts to deposit into Roon. So Roon is actually pretty much the ultimate bull market token. In a bear market, it's the opposite. It's one of the worst tokens because it gets hit really hard the other way. When the Roon price is going down, the yields tank. A lot of people exit the ecosystem because remember, to facilitate omni -chain swaps, what Roon does is it basically has LPs where you're required to hold an asset one to one with Roon. So if you want to swap from, let's say, Ethereum to Bitcoin, you're going to need in the omni -pool your Roon pairing with Ethereum and Bitcoin in order to facilitate that swap. So that's why in a bull market it does really well and in a bear market it does really bad. Because we're in a bull trend at the moment, Roon is clearly performing really well. It's one of the strongest performers in the market at the moment. And for that reason, if we do see a pullback like we're seeing right now, this is one that I'll look to ladder into on continuation. As I mentioned at the start of the video, this is really a traders market and it's a market where you probably want to be longing more than you are shorting. And when we're longing more than we're shorting, we want to look at the strongest coins. There are a few rotational players that I want to talk about but you generally want to look at the strongest coins and on any major pullbacks you can use them as dip buying opportunities, not for spot but for trades only. So depending on your risk tolerance, you can use different amounts of leverage. Some people, if you have more capital, you'll prefer spot trading. For me, I actually do a fair bit of spot trading so I might go in with a bigger position or a low leverage position because I don't want to get wicked out like we saw on the 10th of November. But here are some levels that you can look at to enter Roon on the pullback. The major level I'm looking at is this cross section here between the horizontal and the upwards diagonal trend which comes at around $4. If Roon somehow makes its way back down there, I don't think it will. This would be an amazing zone to do some buying. If not, then you do have this zone right here at the 4 .7 area that could be an interesting look as a small ladder in zone. You could probably ladder in here and then your last gasp is at $3 .60. If it starts breaking this trend, then that looks really bad that it's just going to reverse all the way back down. I don't think that's going to happen though. I think momentum for Roon has been upwards and as such, we should treat it with respect and it's certainly what I'm looking to have a nibble at if we continue to get any sort of sustained pullback in terms of trading, of course, not long -term. Long -term positions will be on more key high time frame supports. If you want to learn a bit more about that, I actually uploaded a video called If You Miss The Crypto Rally Follows This Exact Roadmap, which talks about long -term investing. So today is the short -term show. Yesterday, if you go onto the channel and go onto my playlist, and there's also a playlist linked in the description, that will give you a roadmap for the spot side of things. In terms of buying spot Roon, you want to be doing so on key support levels on the higher time frames because we don't like to buy long -term positions on the shorter time frames. It just doesn't make or the lower time frames. It just doesn't make any sense, right? 4 swaps an interesting play now starting to wake up as well being the main decks on Roon. This is definitely a 4 beta play or a Roon beta play rather. So 4 is definitely what I'm looking at in a similar gist to what I'm doing with Roon. Any major pullbacks probably going to gobble them up from a trading point of view. And you can also see they closed with an all -time high trading volume right now. A lot of people are actually using Roon to swap, which is an amazing thing and great for the ecosystem. So that's Roon. Now I want to talk about Solana because Solana is in a similar position to Roon in the sense that being one of the most explosive price movers. But it's kind of an interesting spot, right? Because it's come all the way up from what $15 to $53 in price. It actually hit $60 for a brief period of time. Spot holders don't know if they should take profits here. Traders don't know if they should be longing here. It's kind of in a weird position. But if we look at Sol, we can see that it broke above the key weekly resistance at the $48 level. So for me, a pullback into this zone similar to a buying opportunity, because I think what tends to happen with these coins is the most explosive move happens last. We haven't, I don't think seen that blow off top yet. And I may be wrong, this $65 zone could have been this blow off top. But I still have a feeling that we get that final thrust from Solana that just squeezes all those shorts that are now starting to pile up a little bit. And that will be your final blow off top for Solana. So because I think there's a tiny bit of juice left in the lemon here, I would be looking at any major pullback similarly to Rune continuing to ladder in until the trend reverses. Happy to kind of lose a bit of money trying to play this game considering that the upside is fairly immense in my opinion, if you can hit that trade. So Solana is one that I'd be interested in longing on a major pullback. You know the key level on the weekly. Obviously, you want to confirm that with lower timeframe trade setups because you have a fantastic level to look at. And on let's say the one hourly, the four hourly, that's when you'd actually be entering. Okay, let's move on to a new subset of tokens. These are the tokens that haven't moved. I know Rune and Solana have moved aggressively and we are playing the by the dip game, I guess on those ones. But some of the coins I want to talk about now actually haven't really moved. Now they have moved because the whole market's moved, but just not as much like Polygon hasn't done a 5x like Solana has or you know, 6x, 7x like Rune has. It is significantly up of course, but there is a really interesting narrative starting to brew here and that's the ZK narrative. So if you actually remember back to earlier in the year, January, February, some of the strongest performers alongside like AI and LSDs were the ZK coins. There was a lot of ZK hype and Matic being your biggest coin in this ZK basket of coins tends to be a market leader and it also happens to have this big announcement happening on November 14th which is garnering a leader of the ZK sector if ZK starts to wake up. Because right now we're in this rotational market, we saw Solana rotate into Avalanche, we saw that rotate into Phantom, we saw gaming pop off, we're seeing all these narratives pop off, AI popped off last week. I think next, a narrative that hasn't really popped off, but one that did in January is ZK. So Matic's definitely one of them. In terms of trading this, you do have your major support at 76, but what I would be more interested in is a break of the 92 cent level on the four hourly. Any confirmation above this level would be a decent entry in my opinion and you can see this level mapped out on the daily chart as your key resistance that we're currently trying to test at the moment. If we break that level, then suddenly we can look at a scenario that happened earlier in the year in February, as I said during that ZK run, where Matic ran all the way to 150. A 150 Matic in this run is not out of the question at all. In fact, I think it could happen if ZK gains steam. So that's what I'm keeping my eye on. Now let's talk about some of the other ZK protocols, but before we get into that, while we're speaking on the topic of Polygon, if you do want to earn any yield on the Polygon side, you can go to the farming page on SmartX, which is one of our official show partners. It's an AMM, which reduces the negative effects of impermanent loss and sometimes leads to impermanent gain that currently offers some of the most competitive, in fact, the best rates on the Polygon side for yield farming. So you can see in front of you, you've got 30 to 40 % APRs on a variety of pools, which as I said, have a mechanism which reduces impermanent loss, which is obviously one of the biggest headaches when it comes to Lping in crypto. So I highly recommend using the link in the description below to check out SmartX if you are interested in farming, or you can also do swapping on SmartX and get some of the best swap in the market as well. Link in the description below to check out SmartX. I've got some big announcements coming soon that I'm excited to share with you as well, so stay tuned for that. So let's talk about some of the other ZK protocols. So if Matic starts to make a run here, what will I long? Well, I'm going to long the leaders. I'm not going to try and pick the laggards in this sector. I want to pick the strongest coins in this sector. If we look back to the last run, as I mentioned at the start of the year, some of the best performers were Mina Protocol, Loop Ring, Nute and Dusk. So these are the ones I'm looking at because the market's really familiar with them. I think there's a bit of synergy here with that narrative in these coins. So those are some of the ones I'm looking at. But whatever leads in this sector after Polygon, those will be the ones that I'm interested in. And you can see Polygon and Immutable, the two biggest ZK protocols have run, but a lot of the others haven't run yet. So I think it's a narrative that's flying slightly under the radar, but I think it'll catch up quick once it starts to gain steam. So as a rotational play, this is definitely one that I'm interested in this week. Another one I'm interested in, which is already starting to pump, but probably has a little more upside left in it, is Sei Network. Now we know how explosive these career pumps have been in recent times. Pretty much every token that's been listed on Korean exchange a bit has exploded. We saw this earlier in the year with Sui and Aptos. We've recently seen it with Mina Protocol. Now we're on its pair on Upbit. So Sei is definitely one that I'm watching. It's catching a strong career pump. It has moved, but Sei is what I would call a new coin, right? It's a coin that has launched in the bear market. It's newer. It has pumpermentals because there's less underwater bag holders, and it still is down from its original trading price on its first day. Not from IDO price, but from the peak that it hit on its first day because it had a huge pump, ended up coming back down. It did hit its low of, what is it, like 0 .09 here. It's now started to move back up to 0 .15, but that's less than a 2X on a coin that has, as I said, pumpermentals. It's obviously a trading blockchain built in the Cosmos ecosystem. So some interesting stuff with Sei. If you do want an entry here, I mean, you could look to get an initial position, but if you're using leverage, you want to be careful. I mean, this is kind of not really a great place to trade. Obviously on one hourly, you might be able to find, it depends how, like if you're trading breakouts, you could probably look for like a breakout of this trend here. By the time you're watching this video, it might be too late. So the best I can do for you is actually looking on the four hourly and showing you these key support levels. The 0 .1344 level, if we do get some sort of confluence with the horizontal and diagonal trend here, this would be a great pocket to buy in. But any zone along this major support zone will be an area that I load up, but it does depend on your trading strategy. If you are a high leverage trader, you want to be a lot more precise. Me, I'll either go in this with spot or super low leverage. So I'm not so concerned about getting the exact entry. I'm just trying to really catch it for the uptrend. So depends how you trade, of course, if you're trying to snipe that entry, got to be a lot more careful. For me, a much lower leverage than your average person because I found that's what works for me because I don't have time just personally to sit in front of my computer all day and snipe entries. That's not me. I much more size. So let's say instead of taking a 2k position, I'll take let's say a 10k or a 15k spot position. And then I can't get wrecked on margin, which has been helping me a lot. Or I'll just go in with like a 3x leverage position. So it would take a lot to shake me out of a trade. So that is one I'm looking at. Similarly to say another coin that has pumpamentals and has shown this in recent times as another new coin is Celestia. Remember guys, the new coins can pump so much harder than all coins in the market. That's why I've been saying for a long time, you should definitely keep your eye on the new coins from both accumulation and a trading perspective. Celestia, by the way, is one if you've been following me on Twitter that you may have gotten an airdrop for because I did an airdrop guide last year and I included Celestia and this could end up being one of the most lucrative airdrops of the year. Congrats to anyone that watched that guide or watch my tweet and got involved because right now if you held your Celestia bag, you'd won to $2 ,000 but for some people it could be a lot more if you use multiple wallets. So I think this one is fantastic and there's a few people that have been coming out and saying that it's this cycle's soul. Smartestmoney .eth, it's an account I respect. The number one coin m p &l trader on Binance, that's pretty crazy, that is very crazy actually, has added spot to a massive seed position quote unquote and basically said watch and learn wannabes. These guys out here buying salt while I'm buying the next Solana. Big call but I mean the market cap is reasonably valued 700 mil okay five bill fdvs a lot but we know in the short term the circulating supply definitely goes to dictate how explosive the price moves can be market cap 700 mils reasonable at rank 71 calling it the next soul I don't know I like this one I like it as a spot play but not maybe after this massive pump in terms of a trade though super interesting now actually on support trend you'll notice a lot of coins are following the same trend they have a diagonal up trend as long as they stick to that trend you long if they start to break down below you've got to be a little bit wary but they've also got these horizontal support levels that they make after their retracements so this is actually a good one too long there's a couple of levels here for you to look out for on the one hourly on Celestia so that's an interesting one and let's move into some of the final narratives here I've got two more to share with you and both of these include a variety of alt coins so the first one is perpetuals I think if this volatility is to remain in the market we could definitely see perpetuals performing well we're starting to see a catch up in terms of price and fundamentals despite that not being the case a couple of weeks ago and if you see in front of you volume is performing really well this is purpose trading season this is an on -chain aping season this is the season where people are trading perps I think the centralized exchanges are doing the best that's where most people are trading but I think decks could catch up and for this reason as well as the fact that I think volatility could remain for the foreseeable future I think the perp decks remain super interesting looks at the moment not for short -term trades this week but over let's say the medium term so two to three months maybe even six months so these are definitely ones I've got my eye on dydx I'm going to do a video on this week that's a very interesting trade GMX and gains network being the ones that are kind of your decks perp decks proxies and a few others and as you can see on the weekly a lot of these are barely moved so especially like GMX and games they're a very interesting look in my opinion and if you do want to snipe better entries on a coin like GMX I recommend you use Kyber AI which is a software that basically tells you the momentum of a coin based on a variety of on -chain indicators like the number and types of trades trading volume net flow to whale wallets and what I would do on a coin like GMX is essentially if you're lining up a buy and let's say you want to start buying when shifts momentum what I would look for is a pattern like this where it shifts from bearish into bullish territory now since this video is not live you're gonna have to open your up your own Kyber AI using the link in the description below to see where it currently is but right now this would actually be potentially an interesting place to long GMX if on the lower time frames it lines up with what the Kyber score is showing which is basically bearish price momentum shown by a strong reversal so heading back into bullish territory as you can see buys are now starting to outpace cells and volume is also up ticking across GMX all of those are metrics that go into the Kyber score Kyber score is one of my favorite metrics in crypto if you go to rankings you can actually sort by market cap I love doing this so I go more than 500 million for the large caps that you can actually trade perps on and you can see which coins are looking the most bullish this can help you get entries in the market especially in a bullish market like this searching for the bullish coins can be an amazing way especially using on -chain analysis to get better trading entries so link in the description to check out Kyber AI it's an extremely useful tool especially for confluence with getting trading entries and crypto bad to subscribers will get early access versus the rest of the pack so link in the description below of course it's free so not showing you anything paid it is a free service to use the last narrative I want to talk about quickly is one I think people are forgetting about it has had a bit of a pullback um but it's the gaming narrative into YGG the reason I say people are forgetting people aren't forgetting about gaming there's a lot of talk about crypto gaming on twitter but I think they're forgetting about one of the biggest gaming conferences in five days time starting on November 18th it lasts for a week there definitely could be some I mean a lot of the major projects are speaking there so there could be some interesting announcements and even if not I think there's bound to be hype into that conference so for that reason definitely keep your eye on the gaming projects there's two in particular that I like YGG because it's their conference and this is now having a pullback into a decent zone in my opinion and also GMT which on the weekly and I know once again you don't enter short -term trades on the weekly but on the weekly if it can pull back down into this pocket at 0 .22 and confirm this is support and if you line that up with your lower time frame indicators of course that could be a decent zone also to enter a GMT trade so gaming is something I'm not going to fade the bees are kind of going from one narrative to another but gaming is one that I've got my eye on ahead of the conference so I hope you enjoyed this video these are all the narratives I'm looking at right now mostly short -term some medium to long -term hope you enjoyed this was fast it was alpha packed let me know in the comments below if there are any other coins I should look at and I'll see you in the next one. Peace out.
A highlight from XRP PUMPS AND DUMP ON BLACKROCK XRP TRUST FAKE NEWS!!
"Welcome to the Thinking Crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify or Apple, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, XRP pumped and dumped this afternoon on news of BlackRock filing for an XRP spot trust. And this filing was actually on the government website in Delaware. So that's where people were going a bit crazy, like, wait, it's legit, right? It's not just a rumor. It's not somebody just tweeted, but rather the filing was actually on the site, but it was a fake filing. scammers, So these these people are getting more sophisticated and more bold. You know, the fact that you're taking BlackRock's name and going and filing a fake application. I mean, come on. Right. We don't know who did it, but, you know, maybe they're playing the market where they're doing some quick longs and then shorting it. Right. Because right away, the market dumped after the news came out that it was a fake filing. So TLDR the here, though, is that you can see the market is clamoring for a spot ETF, whether it be Bitcoin, Ethereum or XRP. This is where scumbag regulator Gary Gensler and the SEC need to act. Approve the goddamn ETF already, right? You got commissioners like Hester Peirce and Mark Ueda who are coming out saying the ETF's spot ETF should have been approved years ago. So right now we're just being delayed by the scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler. So here, Eric Balcones of Bloomberg said this is false, confirmed by BlackRock by me. So he contacted the folks at BlackRock. He said some wacko must have added using BlackRock executive name, et cetera. Come on, man. So, you know, it's it's so silly. And like I said, they're getting bolder. The fact that they're filing and putting this stuff on the website now because of the XRP fake filing that brought into question the Ethereum trust filing, which took place recently, I think a couple of weeks ago or one or two weeks ago. A lot of people are now asking if the Ethereum trust filing was real after seeing the XRP trust was fake. He said, yes, the iShares Ethereum trust is real and was confirmed via 19B -4 filing on Thursday. Only the XRP trust filing was fake. So I think the TLDR here, though, is once again, the market is clamoring for an ETF. Everybody's winning in anticipation. And these ETFs will have a price moving ability. You know, you're going to see the markets pump off of this and we're going to see Bitcoin spot ETF approved eventually all coin ETFs, right? Individual as well as baskets. So Ethereum, XRP, Cardano and the others. Right. It's just a matter of time. It's all going to happen, folks. I think we see the writing on the wall, the direction we're heading in. So I'm very bullish overall. It doesn't matter that this was a fake filing, because I know eventually these products will be built, especially the fact that XRP has the legal clarity in the United States. I mean, you know, obviously the SEC took a big loss, so very bullish overall, despite the fake news. Here's what attorney Fred Rispoli had to say regarding the fake filing. He said, one, it is indeed on the Delaware Corp permission website. I searched this all the time to look up the right entity to sue in my legal cases. He said, number two, could someone file a fake entity? I'm only familiar in filing these in California and Arizona. And yes, I could easily file a fake entity on a real corporation commission website in those states. Maybe it's hard to do in Delaware. So I didn't realize you can fake applications through a government website like so. It's interesting, but at least we know now, right? You live and you learn. And we got to be careful because these scammers are trying to, you know, manipulate the markets. If you recall, there was fake news around the Bitcoin spot ETF for BlackRock being approved. And that, you know, Larry Fink had to go on TV and say, no, that was fake, you know, but you can see the market is really ready for this. So speaking of Bitcoin spot ETF, though, Michael Sonnenshine, who's the CEO of Grayscale, tweeted out this morning, it's been a 10 year dress rehearsal. We're ready for the main event. Is he hinting to something happening soon? Because we got news here from Nate Guaracci, who is the president at ETF store. And you know, he lives, breathes and eats ETF. So these guys know everything about it. He said a spot Bitcoin ETF approval could come this week. And he shared an article here with him and James Safer. So it's possible something may happen this week, you know, no guarantees, of course. But for example, James Safer has been saying he's anticipating January 2024 that that's when this is going to happen. And by the way, I'm interviewing James tomorrow. So we're going to talk about all this news.

A highlight from Evangelism Is Necessary for the Salvation of Sinners
"One more sermon in Romans 11 for next week and then I will have a week off going on vacation so we'll have a guest preacher that Sunday and when I get back you guessed it Advent will be here. The Christmas season is here. May seem a little early but not nearly as early as everybody in our culture pushing it at least on our church calendar you know I'm trying to be legit you know it really is Advent in a couple of weeks so hope you're looking forward to that. I look forward to that every year as we study the greatest coming of a savior in all of the world Jesus Christ. Romans 10 11 through 21 the title of the message is evangelism is necessary for the salvation of sinners. It's important you'll see why in a moment why we're emphasizing this because Paul does in fact. I want to start with asking you a question have you ever had the experience the challenge of starting a new job but not receiving adequate training in order to fulfill the tasks that were expected of you. That's a hard spot to be in isn't it it's like okay yeah we want you in this job and you think you're going to get some great training and you end up not getting so much. During my seminary days I took a job started off as a summer job ended up I worked there about a year cleaning swimming pools for a very small business. The first week that I worked for this pool business actually a decent sized pool business though it was small I got paid to sit at my boss's kitchen table for the first week to look at to examine and take apart a pool pump and look through an owner's manual while he was I don't know what he was doing to be honest. That's great in theory except that's not very helpful for someone who doesn't know anything about them. The second and the third weeks the owners obsessive compulsive and likely schizophrenic about 20 pools customers homes 20 pools to show me how to maintain them clean them etcetera use the word show loosely right. Now you would think that my training on those pools would start with a fairly easy pool you know maybe a simpler one to start off with but that wasn't the case. My first encounter was at the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club which is a pool that is far from simple it's a massive pool it's big it's complicated system it had two pumps two filters and a whole I mean you need a diagram to understand the PVC valve system on this thing that's my first pool. I'm going what if you turn the wrong valve at the wrong time and forget to turn this valve back off or on or what have you can burn out a pump you could burn out a system burst pipes very easily it's accurate to say after two weeks of supposed training I wasn't ready in God's grace I did not blow anything up in my time there but I did not receive adequate training where did the owner and his son go wrong.
A highlight from Sunday of the Thirty-Second Week in Ordinary Time A Time of Lectio Divina for the Discerning Heart Podcast
"A time of Lectio Divina for the discerning heart. Sunday of the 32nd week in ordinary time. As you begin, take a deep breath and exhale slowly. For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of this day to the Lord. Say slowly from your heart, Jesus, I trust in you. You take over. Become aware that he is with you, looking upon you with love, wanting to be heard deep within your heart. A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew chapter 25 verses 1 through 13. Jesus told this parable to his disciples. The kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were sensible. The foolish ones did take their lamps, but they brought no oil, whereas the sensible ones took flasks of oil as well as their lamps. The bridegroom was late and they all grew drowsy and fell asleep. But at midnight there was a cry. The bridegroom is here. Go out and meet him. At this, all those bridesmaids woke up and trimmed their lamps, and the foolish ones said to the sensible ones, Give us some of your oil. Our lamps are going out. But they replied, There may not be enough for us and for you. You had better go to those who sell it and buy some for yourselves. They had gone off to buy it when the bridegroom arrived. Those who were ready went in with them to the wedding hall and the door was closed. The other bridesmaids arrived later. Lord, Lord, they said, Open the door for us. But he replied, I tell you solemnly, I do not know you. So stay awake because you do not know either the day or the hour.
A highlight from ETH ETF Surprise
"Hello and welcome to Legocast. My name is Brian Grosgard here with my friend, Josh Olswich. Hey, Josh. Brian, good to be with you. Great to be with you. And it's happy days for those of us bullish the crypto coins. It's hard to not make money right now. I think if you're listening to Doomer, I think it was Bobby. He tweeted out this great meme today. Like Squidward looking at SpongeBob and Patrick partying outside the window. He, not Bobby, but he Squidward is like listening to macro Doomer podcasts, you know? Yeah, it's dangerous. It's dangerous to be a bear for too long. Yeah, you can have a long term view, a short term view, a mid term view. But don't let that prevent you from doing anything. Like don't let it paralyze you and thinking, oh, the economy, Biden, Trump, blah, blah, blah, like, whoever it is, is that's telling you this stuff in your in your ear, like, look, we're up what 100 % percent on Bitcoin this year. I have some business relationships in my hometown. And unfortunately, some of them know that I'm, I have a career in crypto. You're a celebrity. No, they don't necessarily know that I have a significant public presence. But they have, you know, that is, they know I'm into Bitcoin or whatever, you know, like, I don't even own a Bitcoin. Pathetic. Yeah. Pathetic. I own some Bito, some futures. Does that count? Not really, but we'll give you a pass. It's not my keys. Anyway, so like, they're, they're kind of like, oh, yeah, you know, you guys are down bad. And I'm like, well, I don't know, my asset class is up over 100 % this year. How's yours doing? It's like, what, really? It's getting better. But yeah, this is what's great about crypto bear markets is everyone forgets every time. Well, it happens. It happens so fast. By the time people realize what's going on, you know, we're up 100 % on the year and they're like, what, like, you're not dead, right? Like, I haven't had anybody, just today, actually, I had one of my relatives text me. I know. So be careful, but I haven't had anybody say anything about anything. It's just crazy, you know? Yeah. It's great. It's the best. It's the best time to be in the space is when the frothy FOMO money is out. Yeah, we survived the bear. We slogged through it. Trading chart pattern to chart pattern. Yeah, that's not to say we're advocating for up only and nothing else. It's just to say that there's opportunity here. Barely feeding ourselves. When the volatility rises, that's when we're happy campers. I think everybody's just happy stuff's moving. Yeah, that's what I'm saying. I'll take either direction, but obviously, better that it's up. Yeah, I don't love when it's down. Although, back when you and I talked about this a ton when it occurred, like that 6K breakdown back in 2018, I was relieved when it finally just broke down. Now, I would have been more relieved if it broke up. But just to get out of this was awesome. Yeah, at that point, I distinctly... You can do stuff. Yeah, I just think that I remember living through that. It was miserable. Yeah. And so volatility is better than non -volatility for traders, active market participants. And that's what we have here. We had going into October, March to October was basically just a no man's land trade range. Most of the recovery was from January to March. So good spring. Carpe noctum, seasonality for the win again. Q1 on the move. Q2 and Q3, freaking boring. Q4 on the move. Good for you. Good for you, Josh. Yeah, Q4. October, November, Thanksgiving, super spreader event in crypto land, Bitcoin specifically. Get ready, because that's coming. So it looks good. People are starting to wake up to the fact that, hey, we have actually done extremely well in a non -correlated fashion, really. What do we even correlate it to this year? Not much. Because I just checked S &P, the Q's, gold, TLT. We aren't really correlated to any of that anymore in a big way. All right, Josh. So there's a couple of things I see that I want your opinions on. Number one is there's some sneaky potential. I'm just looking at lines, weekly closes, historical weekly closes. And then I want you to tell me how does it align with Joshua's various like obscure math things like pivots? I mean, they're not obscure. They're just math. But you got to work a little harder to see them. All right. So this little level that we're at, this sub 40, high 30s, well, maybe a sneaky resistance. But the one I really have my eyes on is up here at 47K, what I would call the breakdown. I always like those where what was the start of the trend that was then, you know, 12 or 14 weeks of down only? I wanted to see 47. I could see some pausing here. How does this compare to what you're looking at? It makes sense. Before I comment on that, I will say the events that led to that, right, it was first Luna buying and then Luna selling that broke us down. It was also the first rate hike was basically just that two weeks before that before we died, right? Well, they were buying all in that. Yeah, we're buying earlier, right? I think.
A highlight from ETH Spot ETF Will Trigger A Huge Rally! (Buy These Altcoins)
"This has changed everything for the crypto market. News just broke that the iShares Ethereum Trust has just been registered in Delaware. The exact same thing happened for the Bitcoin Spot ETF, where BlackRock filed for registration just before they officially registered for the Bitcoin Spot ETF. So this leads me to believe that an Ethereum Spot ETF application is looming. And of course, if that's the case, then this could open up the door for a new trade in not only Ethereum, but also the Ethereum ecosystem. Will Clemente also pointed out a good point here that if BlackRock is feeling comfortable now filing for an ETH Spot ETF, then the likelihood that a Spot Bitcoin ETF will get approved is now much higher because obviously they wouldn't be filing if they didn't have confidence, right? So I want to talk about why this could be so massive, not only for the crypto market, but also for the altcoin market, because you have to keep in mind Ethereum is the leader of the alts and it has been Bitcoin's time to shine over the last few months, but with now signs of Ethereum starting to reverse versus BTC with Ethereum dominance increasing and now getting this BlackRock ETF filing, there could be some great news for Ethereum around the corner and definitely trades in the ecosystem that we've got to take a look at. The first thing I want to acknowledge before I get into specific altcoins, by the way, one of the altcoins I'm going to show you at the end of today's video is one of my favorite altcoins in the crypto market at the moment, is the current Bitcoin flush that we just saw. So open interest was steadily increasing, meaning the amount of leverage that was being taken by market participants to the long and the short side, but mostly the long side was increasing. But what we did see is a massive flush, a huge liquidation cascade where a lot of the late longs were wrecked. A lot of the altcoins also had massive weeks down, especially on a liquid alt. Some of these were down 20 to 25%, but the market did slowly end up recovering. And what we did see following this massive liquidation event is open interest essentially getting extremely wiped out to the point where OI is as low as it's been since October 24th, the lowest in over two weeks time. So the market completely flushed out all the leverage. And what I would say about this event is it's extremely healthy. There are a couple lessons here. One, obviously don't take aggressive leverage so you can be subject to these types of wicks. But two, setting limit orders in this market can be hugely advantageous. Let's look at a coin like Pendle. Look at Pendle here. It actually ended up dropping like 16 % just in a minute. And anyone that had limit orders for this coin, so people that wanted to buy the dip on Pendle, their limit orders could have been filled, albeit not all the orders would have gotten filled because they had a plan. So definitely when it comes to old coins, have a plan where you lay out your limit orders on your exchange. In case there are these flushes, then you can catch a nice bit at a key level. And using Pendle as the example here, you can see that this is a major level four Pendle as well that it hit the 84 cent region being a major resistance level newly turned into support. So this is just one example of why setting limit orders in the crypto market is a good idea. Now what about Ethereum? Well, Ethereum in light of the BlackRock ETF filing or the iShares registration in Delaware, it's now starting to reverse on the ETHBTC chart. And you guys know that I've been looking at this chart as pretty much my holy grail of Ethereum and altcoins because this chart tells me whether Ethereum is gaining dominance or losing dominance versus Bitcoin in terms of Ethereum as a trending coin. So what you can see here is Ethereum is now starting to break or at least attempting to break back into this range. So break back above and make this five five level into support. In previous times, for example, in June 2022, it did deviate below and then it ended up consolidating above and having a push to the range high of the ETHBTC chart at the 0 .082 level. So what we're seeing here is that Ethereum deviating below again looks like it wants to do something similar to what it did back in July 2022. The major level that ETH needs to break though once it holds back above the support line is this orange line here, which essentially indicates the trend for Ethereum. If it starts to break back above and make a higher low, that would be amazing for Ethereum as it shows ETH is gaining dominance versus Bitcoin. This BlackRock ETF may just be the thing that spurs on the Ethereum narrative. So that's what I'm looking at in terms of ETH. But what are the best altcoins to take advantage of this trade? Well, I actually don't think it's ETH. I think there are proxy bets to the ETH ecosystem, so ETH beta plays, which could outperform. Let's discuss a few of them in today's video. The first one I want to discuss is Lido and Rockerpool because these two are your ETH liquid staking plays. They also got flushed out massively during this liquidation cascade that we just talked about. So Lido, for example, went all the way up to 2 .4. It did end up coming back down to 1 .9. It's now consolidating in the 2 .1 region. You are watching this video two hours after I'm recording, so maybe it's somewhere in this range. But nonetheless, Lido is now starting to consolidate above a major support level at the 1 .98 region on the daily chart. So Lido for me looks good as an ETH beta play. So does Rockerpool, especially if it breaks above this $31 level on the weekly. Your next target is its range high of $40. So Rockerpool starting to wake up. Lido also looking good. One I'm also looking at is Arbitrum. Once again, this flush took it all the way back down to its support level at the $0 .92 zone. But Arbitrum looks like it wants to break above its major resistance at $1 .1. If it can break above, then we know its next target is 1 .31. Something interesting to note about Arbitrum is that it adheres to market structure really well. A lot of these new coins like Pepe, Arbitrum, they tend to stick to market structure because everyone's fulfilling prophecy. And I guess at the end of the day, this is what TA is, where Arbitrum actually obeys these levels super well. So these are the levels I am using in terms of Arbitrum. Something else I'm doing when it comes to these coins is I'm using Kyber AI to get better entries. So let's say, for example, it does close above retests on the daily, the 1 .1 level. If I want to get an entry into Arbitrum, what I would do is I would search up Arbitrum onto Kyber AI, because it's going to tell me what the trend is like in terms of the on -chain analytics. And I would see here whether the Kyber score is in bullish territory. If it's in bullish territory, this indicates that the market is willing to bid on Arbitrum based on a variety of factors, such as the number and types of trades, trading volume, net flow to whale wallets, etc. So I would use this Kyber score, I would use this data to my advantage to get more confluence to line that up with a break and a consolidation of trend. What I do like to see though, as one general rule of thumb when it comes to Kyber scores and using Kyber AI, is when you see these patterns here, where you get bearish signals starting to turn into bullish signals. So it might go from bearish, it might go up to the 70 to 80 Kyber score region. Once it starts getting into this region, that is assigned to me after two four -hourly closes above this level that you will likely start to see it target the very bullish territory, which is the 90 plus region as we saw happens in this occasion. So especially in the lower timeframes, this is a really nice metric to use when you're trading and you can use it for a variety of alts. So that's how I'm using Kyber AI and you can also use it using the link in the description to sign up for early access. I discussed at the start of the video, there was an altcoin that I was eyeing specifically as an outperformer in this category and that's actually Pendle. Pendle is super interesting because it has exposure to a few narratives. It has exposure to Arbitrum, which is an ETH L2 narrative because of the ecosystem fund that is currently occurring on Arbitrum. So a lot of the protocols are getting grants that they're distributing to their governance holders, which is super bullish for Arbitrum specific protocols. That's why I mentioned Arb as well as a play earlier in the video, but Pendle has exposure to that ecosystem. It also utilizes layer zero technology for its multi -chain strategies. So this is also interesting because it could be a proxy play for the layer zero airdrop as well. And it also gets some of the LSD fi rotation given the fact that Pendle is one of the platforms where you can trade your yield for LSDs and stake your yield. So let's say your staked Ethereum to earn an additional yield on the Pendle platform. So it kind of covers three narratives at once. One is the L2 narrative, one is the ETH LSD fi narrative and another one is the layer zero narrative. It's showing a lot of strength here on the chart and it was actually one of the altcoins that was bought up most quickly during this liquidation cascade here, which indicates to me that it's one of the strongest coins in the market. You can always learn a lot in the market when the market drops and it bounces. Always try and track which coins bounce the most. The coins that bounce the most, typically they are the best longs when it is time to long and Pendle is definitely showing its strength here. Yes, it's pumped a lot. I would love to be able to get some accumulation opportunities on major pullbacks, but for the traders out here, I think you can have a lot of fun trading this token if you're looking to long because it is looking like one of the strongest tokens in the market. I want to give a shout out quickly to one of my major sponsors of the show, which is SmartX. If you want to earn any yield across a variety of layer two ecosystems, but Arbitrum included, like we've just been talking about, you can head over to the platform using the link in the description and get access to some of the strongest APRs in crypto. But not only that, some of the most competitive risk adjusted returns in crypto due to the fact that they have introduced a mechanism to lower or mitigate the negative effects of impermanent loss. You can see here versus platforms like Uniswap on a typical Ethereum pair, SmartX often gets the much better results due to the mechanism that they've introduced. And you can look at on the homepage of the SmartX website using their compare function, how SmartX LPs track versus other LPs here. And you can also simulate the algorithm to see how their LPs actually perform better on chain versus a lot of other pairs, as you can see in front of you. So if you do want to earn some of the strongest yields in the market across any of the ecosystems that you can see on screen, you can use the link in the description below. They've built a nice product. And if you've used it before, you would know how smooth it is to use as well. So thank you to SmartX and thank you to Kyber AI for sponsoring this video. I hope you learned something. Definitely keeping my eye on the ETH beta plays at the moment. I think this could be a watershed moment for the Ethereum narrative because it was dead. Let's be honest, it was just Bitcoin. ETH was lagging. This could finally be what Ethereum needs to start to kick into gear here. Definitely keep your eye on that ETH BTC chart. I will see you in the next video. Hope you have a lovely rest of your day. Good luck trading in this crazy market. There's definitely lots of money to be made. Peace out.
A highlight from AI Today Podcast: AI Glossary Series- Methodology, Waterfall, Agile, CRISP-DM, Cognitive Project Management for AI (CPMAI)
"The AI Today podcast, produced by Cognolytica, cuts through the hype and noise to identify what is really happening now in the world of artificial intelligence. Learn about emerging AI trends, technologies, and use cases from Cognolytica analysts and guest experts. Hey, AI Today listeners. Want to dive deeper and get resources to drive your AI efforts further? We've put together a carefully curated collection of resources and tools handcrafted for you, our listeners, to expand your knowledge, dive deeper into the world of AI, and provide you with the essential resources you need. From books and materials, ranging from fundamentals of AI to deep dives on implementing AI projects, to AI ethics, tools, software, checklists, and more, our resources page will help you on your AI journey, whether you're just starting out or you're well on your way. Check it out at aitoday .live slash list. That's aitoday .live slash l -i -s -t. Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host, Kathleen Mulch. And I'm your host, Ronald Schmelzer, and you know, we've been doing these AI Today glossary series podcasts now for a while, and I think it's really great because we're covering the full scope of putting AI into practice and making it successful. And as you may have gathered from all of our podcast episodes, it's more than just about machine learning models and algorithms and training data. That's a small part of it. Making AI successful really is about the full scope of big data, and it's about AI and applying the right pattern of AI. And it's all about understanding, you know, how you need to deal with some of these ethical concepts and how we need to deal with dealing with data and moving data around and understanding it. So that's part of the glossary. It's not just, oh, yeah, be familiar with terms, but also like, oh, wow, maybe I need to be aware of these things because if I want my project to be successful, there's a lot of things I need to factor into account. So definitely continue to listen. We're going to have tons more on the AI Glossary Series. We have lots of other things, of course, that we've been doing on AI Today since 2017. So yeah, six years into this and hundreds of podcasts, you know, we'll continue strong. We don't never run out of things to say on the AI Today podcast. So stay subscribed and be part of our AI Today community. Exactly. So with our AI Glossary Series, if you've listened to them before, you know that sometimes we present one term and other times we present multiple terms together on the podcast so that we can, you know, help you understand how these terms fit together. And these are AI machine learning and big data terms that we have in our glossary. So on today's podcast, we're going to define the term methodology, also waterfall, agile, crisp DM, and the cognitive project management for AI, CPMAI. So we've talked about methodology a lot on all of our podcasts because we are advocates of doing AI right and following best practices methodologies. But sometimes when we talk to people, when we talk to people with more of a project management mindset or background, they totally get methodology. When we talk to folks that are more technical, more developer background, they don't always understand the term methodology. So we want to make sure that we are level setting it. And just in general, sometimes people don't, you know, not necessarily those roles in particular. So I don't want to single any one particular rollout. But so we said, why don't we actually define the term methodology and put that in our glossary? So a methodology is a set of steps, process, and framework that is followed in a particular order to achieve desired and repeatable outcomes. Methodologies are generally practices and procedures that people follow for particular tasks and adopted organization -wide to ensure that the organization adopts the same approaches to systems. So that's important to understand because it really is a step -by -step approach. It's repeatable, usually documented so that you're not kind of just making things up on the fly. It's a step -by -step approach that you can follow every time to get repeatable outcomes. So methodologies such as CPMAI methodology provide a project management approach to running and managing AI projects in a predictable and iterative manner, optimized for success and avoidance of common reasons why AI projects fail. And we had a huge, you know, common reasons why AI projects fail podcast or AI failure series. We'll link to those in the show notes so you can check them out. But just at a high level, understand when you do apply best practices methodologies, you are limiting your, you know, some of those common reasons why AI projects fail. Yeah, you know, methodologies are really important. People don't put enough emphasis that it's the way you do things often that define the difference between success and failure. I mean, if you listen to many of our interviews here on AI Today and you look at some of the stuff that we've been talking about, especially in our failure series, this is probably the most relevant, that you'll see that we bring examples from organizations that have some of the best researchers and technologists on the planet. There's like nobody better than some of these researchers who have been doing AI and machine learning and they know their stuff. And these companies themselves have tons of technology, some of the best technology, some of the great, they're not short on resources, right? But they're failing. They're failing. And of part the reason for that is that they're ignoring these processes. There are some rational approaches for doing it right. So people need to focus on investing in approaches. And the irony of it is that it's so inexpensive to learn how to do something. Nobody is telling you that you have to rigidly implement a process in the exact same way over and over again. But if you don't have a process, all you're doing is you're just doing a whole lot of trial and error and you're going to make mistakes that other people have made mistakes, sometimes really silly ones and stupid ones, you know, honestly. And this is like the smartest people are honestly making some of the dumbest mistakes. So, you know, pay attention to it. You may think, I don't know if the word methodology trips you up. I don't know. We were on a podcast once. We asked them if they were implementing any methodology. They said scientific methodology. I just couldn't hold back. I'm like, no, you're not. First of all, it's ridiculous for you to say that. So maybe the word methodology trips you up. You want to think of it as a process or a framework. That's fine. But you need to understand that it's a methodology. So let's bring in some methodologies that have been around, especially for project management that you may or may not be familiar with. And one of the ones that have been around for a while is called Waterfall, which is that's the name of the methodology. And it's an approach to project management that uses sequential development process sort of in a top to bottom approach that flows like a waterfall. So as you complete the requirements and it fills, then you can move on to the next phase on the project. And usually they kind of, they're sequential, so you can't overlap them. There are approaches that overlap, but let's not confuse things too much. You know, generally the approach with Waterfall is you have a requirements phase, then you have an analysis phase, a design phase, an implementation phase of some form, then you have sort of a testing phase, and then you have this final deployment phase. And, you know, these sorts of, this sort of steps kind of like an assembly line, or it's used in complex processes where you really do need to set out those requirements well in advance because you don't really want things or expect things to be changing too much. And they don't, so you can kind of guess where things are going here. They don't require sort of the too much iterative and agile stuff. So think of large engineering projects, building skyscrapers, building shopping walls, any sort of construction project, because you have to really know things well in advance, get permits and figure out where the utilities will be and the streets and the traffic and all that sort of stuff. You don't need last minute changes. You don't want last minute changes, right? But even technical projects that are just very complicated and you need to have well -defined steps. You know, Waterfall has its uses and has its approaches and has been around for a very long time. And, you know, generally that's the approach. But, well, you know, Waterfall isn't great for everything. Exactly. So Waterfall, as Ron mentioned, is still around, is still used. But Waterfall approaches follow, you know, a real engineering approach. And that can pose challenges when we are doing software development projects. So Waterfall really borrows from assembly line methods of production and operation management approaches. And as you can imagine, the timeline from when you're, you know, scoping your project out to completing the project and delivering it can be quite long. I mean, it's, you know, not uncommon, maybe 12, 18, 24 months. That's okay if you're doing things like building a shopping mall. But that's not really okay with software development. So also Waterfall requires lots of planning and documentation, requires teams to predict major obstacles, which when you're building, you know, like I said, a shopping mall, maybe you can predict what some of those major obstacles will be because you've seen them on previous jobs. But that's harder with software development. Also, it's a high risk of building the wrong thing. And you're unable to quickly respond to changing technology, requirements, needs, and bias problems, which, again, can pose huge challenges for software development projects. So from that, there was this idea that came about that we need to be more iterative and agile. We need to, you know, have tighter, short iterations so that we get to the goal of rapidly producing a deliverable within a much shorter timeframe. So no longer do we have these, you know, 12, 18 month projects, but we have shorter two weeks prints and iterations. And this is kind of that idea behind agile. So it's, again, more optimized to software development. But what exactly is agile? Yeah, so agile is a specific approach and it's also a philosophy, if you want to think of it. But it is defined as a methodology for development of any kind. It originally was for software development, but it's really kind of been applied more broadly that really focuses on these short iterative sprints. So that's the agility we want to we want to deal with change. We want to deal with the fact that requirements change and environments change and technology changes as we run into unexpected problems. Right. So that's sort of like the opposite of waterfall. Right. We want to break up our project into these smaller sections rather than tackling the whole project at once. And there are these a lot of related ideas. So agile is a general approach. There's some specific stuff there, but there's also this idea of Scrum and Kanban. I don't want to get into all those details because now you're entering the project management world, which is really interesting. Here we are on a podcast about AI and machine learning and we're talking about project management. And the reason why is because, as we said, most often the cause of failure for AI project is not bad people or bad technology. It's bad process and bad methodology. So that is why we need to bring in some of these very fundamental project management concepts. Now, agile does have this philosophy and it has a manifesto and it basically says we need to treat the requirements and needs of individuals and interactions over some rigid process and tool. Obviously, waterfall being rigid process and specific tools. The agile manifesto says really focus on delivering a working product. It has this idea of minimum viable products and really sort of working towards having something, having something to show an iteration over having comprehensive documentation, which is sort of obviously waterfall says, let's have a complete requirements document, make it as complete as possible. You're not going to have complete. And besides, even if you did, things change. Right.
A highlight from ETF Excitement Drives Bitcoin Past $36,000
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, November 9th, and today we are talking about Bitcoin's breakout and all of the bullish sentiment shift. But, before we get into that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends. Well, yesterday, as you know, we pivoted to bullishness, put the SPF trial behind us, and faced firmly forward, and boy, has today extended the excitement. So much so that I'm actually not even really covering the biggest bull thing from today, which is BlackRock registering an Ethereum spot ETF that happened just as I was finishing, so I am sure that that will be front and center tomorrow. For now, let's kick off today with a tweet from Steven Lubka, who's the Managing Director and Head of Private Clients and Family Offices at Swan. He tweets, I love how Bitcoin itself determines how busy my day is going to be. Today is going to be crazy. Thanks for almost cracking $37k overnight. So let's start this report with the ETF speculation. Grayscale has opened talks with the SEC in an attempt to finally move forward with the conversion of the Grayscale Bitcoin trust into an ETF. Grayscale sources said the company is now in active discussions with the SEC's division of trading and markets and the division of corporate finance. Both divisions play a key role in deciding ETF applications. Now, Grayscale, of course, won its lawsuit against the SEC in August, with the court ruling that the SEC must reconsider the firm's application to convert GBTC. If the SEC wanted to deny the application, it would need to come up with some new reasons after their existing rationale was found to be arbitrary and capricious. Craig Salm, Grayscale's chief legal officer, said, Right now, we're just laser focused on constructively re -engaging with trading and markets. There are still things that have to be worked through. He added that, Overall, it's been good engagement and it's a matter of when, not a matter of if anymore. Grayscale CEO Michael Sonenshine also confirmed that discussions with the SEC have commenced. He told Bloomberg that his team have been busy filing the required documents, which quote, When pressed for a timeline for approval, Sonenshine chuckled, noting that, Timelines are certainly not something that has been discussed, but what I can tell you is that the SEC is constructively engaging at the moment. We remain optimistic that we will get through any final hurdles that need to be there and our investors will finally get what they've been waiting for. Now, the market, for its part, clearly thinks the conversion is likely to be approved. The GBTC discount has now closed to 12 % from over 40 % back in June. It's the smallest discount since November of 2021. Now, widening to the rest of the pool of potential ETFs, Bloomberg analysts reported that the SEC has a brief eight -day window to approve all 12 spot Bitcoin ETFs at the same time, which begins today. ETFs are generally not approved while they are still open for public comment following an SEC decision. That comment period concluded today for seven of the ETFs, which were delayed as a group in late September. James Safart, one of the Bloomberg ETF analysts, followed up in a Twitter thread explaining that, If the agency wants to allow all 12 fliers to launch, as we believe, this is the first available window since Grayscale's court victory was affirmed. Now on November 17th, comment periods will reopen for three of the applications from GlobalX, Hashdex, and Franklin Templeton when they hit their next SEC deadline for approval or delay. That would leave the SEC able to approve only nine of the 12 applications until January. Safart, with some assistance from finance lawyer Scott Johnson, added some extra detail to the situation. They explained that there are two approvals required before the ETFs can begin trading. The SEC would need to approve the proposed rule changes, and then a separate division of the regulator would need to sign off on product disclosure forms known as an S -1. Johnson tweeted, If there's a hypothetical approval this week, there's probably minimum a month and probably a couple before any ETF actually launches. S -1's still under review and no real hard deadline for that process. Though I consider it more a formality at that stage. Would be a wild period. Safart agreed, stating that possible and even likely that there could be weeks or even months between approval and launch. This is in line with comments made by Valkyrie CIO Stephen McClurg last week, who said, A late November approval likely means a February launch. Now his view was that the SEC would likely wait until the new year to ask firms to put finishing touches on their S -1 filings before they were given the green light. Adding a little more intrigue to the process, SEC chair Gary Gensler released another one of his little videos. This one was an explanation of the Division of Corporation Finance, the group which has recently been giving feedback on ETF applicants on their S -1s. Gensler emphasized that the SEC is a quote merit neutral regulator. He explained that the basic bargain of US capital markets is that quote, investors get to decide what risk they take so long as public companies make complete and truthful disclosure. Now of course, the timing of this could be nothing, but some viewed it as a meaningful indication of what has been going on behind closed doors at the SEC. Senior Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balcones tweeted, Could be a coincidence, but probably not. They did preapproval educational stuff ahead of BITO approval as well. Also, I feel like this is his way of saying, look, we aren't endorsing these ETFs, we're just trying to disclose all the possible risks so you can decide. Hands washed. Investor Adam Cochrane reiterated the point, tweeting, Usually this kind of stuff is posted by the SEC as like a disclaimer before they approve things they don't like. For example, last time was four days before they approved the BITO futures ETF. We guess this puts Bitcoin ETF approvals at less than one week now. As one final little indication that things could be moving behind the scenes at the SEC, commissioners and staff attended a closed door meeting this afternoon. The agenda included quote, institution and settlement of administrative proceedings and resolution of litigation claims. These kinds of meetings are held as needed and we don't have any further detail to confirm the commissioners are voting on ETF approvals, but holding a meeting is a much stronger indicator than not holding a meeting. To sum up, analysts' current expectations is that the entire cohort of ETFs are likely to be approved at the same time so as not to pick winners and that this could all happen as soon as this week. After that approval, disclosure statements will need to be finalized before the ETFs can be launched, which seems likely to take weeks, if not months. Notably, Bloomberg analysts have not adjusted their odds for full approvals in January up from 90%. They're also leaving their odds at an approval for this year at 70%. There's currently no real expectation that ETFs will begin trading until early next year. All commentary has carried a very prominent disclaimer that approvals are far from guaranteed, but between all of these little indications, market sentiment is clearly pointing towards a Bitcoin ETF approval. Crypto trader AvocadoToast tweeted, ETF thesis is pretty simple, 90 % odds of approval by Jan 10th could happen any day really. Announcement, immediate FOMO to speculate, scramble to search for ETF tokens on DexTools screener and Twitter, find top choice ETF because first mover most liquid highest market cap most trustworthy one, mash buy button candle loads. We all know this is going to happen. Let's just skip the song and dance. Blockworks Jason Yanowitz said, this market still severely underestimates how insane it will be to have Bitcoin ETF approvals and Bitcoin having within 60 days of each other will be obvious in hindsight. Now all of this ETF speculation has of course been extremely positive for Bitcoin price action. The market tested the $36 ,000 level for the third time late on Wednesday evening and effortlessly broke through. Bitcoin settled at a new level of around $36 ,700 overnight. Now Matrixport said earlier on Wednesday that they expected the breakout above $36 ,000 to be imminent. Following on from that correct prediction, the firm said that they believed a sustained rally to follow. Their report stated, the Santa Claus rally could start at any moment with a steady increase in buyers during US trading hours and an ongoing attempt for Bitcoin to break out. We could see prices rallying into the end of the month and year. Matrixport included some macro commentary recognizing that this Bitcoin run has been supported by dovish federal reserve messaging, reducing long -term debt issuance from the treasury and a continued slowdown in inflation. They noted that above $36 ,000 there's a lot of fresh air considering how rapidly prices collapsed in early 2022. The report stated that quote, a break above $36 ,000 could propel Bitcoin toward our next technical resistance level at $40 ,000 potentially reaching $45 ,000 by the end of 2023. Now along these same lines, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or CME, which hosts the highest volume market for Bitcoin futures in the US has continued to see a rush of trading. Open interest for Bitcoin futures has increased by 35 % over the past four weeks, moving above 100 ,000 Bitcoin for the first time. Indeed, the CME is snapping at the heels of Binance as the dominant market for Bitcoin futures trading. Binance currently has a little over 24 % of the market while the CME is closing in with 22 .7%. Now, according to K33 research, the two week price consolidation around 35 ,000 has primed bullish sentiment. Over the last two weeks, dips have been bought and Bitcoin has remained in a $2 ,000 range. That range, of course, is now broken to the upside, but the analysis still seems relevant. K33 observed that with Bitcoin range bound, altcoins have had a chance to run. We've seen numerous tokens achieve gains above 10 % in the past two weeks, which has brought the total crypto market cap back up to $1 .4 trillion for the first time since the Luna collapse. Bitcoin dominance softened slightly as a result of this altcoin run, but remained above 50%. Now, maybe most interestingly, volumes during US trading hours are dominating the market, vastly outstripping other regions. Premiums on front month options have exploded with calls settled at the end of November showing a 16 % annualized premium. ETF inflows continue to be strong, with the pro shares Bitcoin futures ETF BITO just receiving its third highest weekly inflow since November 2021. Now, despite the rush of activity in derivatives markets, Bitcoin's implied volatility remains below its three year average. This indicates that markets are priced for slow, grinding price action rather than sudden spikes.
A highlight from Taiwan's Next Embracing Bitcoin?! | EP 863
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin. It's going on forever. You're against Bitcoin. You're against freedom. Yo, what's up? We are back. We're back for another episode of Simply Bitcoin. And today is an interesting story. I did have to do some deep dive for this one. So game theory is heating up in China, guys. The first reading of Taiwan's crypto bill passes. And depending on the source, Taiwan might be on the verge of making Bitcoin legal tender January 24th. It almost seems like this is happening. It's almost like it's inevitable. And Taiwan is embracing Bitcoin. And we all know the saga between China, that we know that we won China policy. We've been covering this all year. And we know how many times China banned Bitcoin. They banned mining. We've seen even Taiwan themselves try to ban Bitcoin. But of course, you can't ban Bitcoin. You can only ban yourself from Bitcoin. And even this week, on Mainland, Hong Kong has been mulling over whether they are going to embrace an ETF as well. So it really makes you wonder. And if you go back for a couple episodes, Niko and I went over this, the idea of maybe China is using different proxies to embrace Bitcoin after officially banning Bitcoin. The dip last we saw, I think that was 2021 now, it's all a blur at this point. Some days they're banning it. Some days they're embracing it. Well, it seems like China or Taiwan, forgive me, is about to make Bitcoin legal tender. And remember, one of the IRLs we did, we had a friend come on here and I'm blanking on exactly which one it was. But he said basically that what they mean when they say crypto is really Bitcoin and they do not talk about what they have under their mattress. So whenever you're hearing crypto come out from the Asian countries, from China in particular, remember that they know what we know. It is Bitcoin only. And there's Bitcoin and then there's other cryptos. Anyways, Bitcoin's global game theory chess match is playing out in real time, guys. And as a Bitcoiner, you just love to see it. The Mexican standoff is continuing to get spicier. It's continuing to heat up. And it's going to be very interesting to see which countries get left behind, which countries don't embrace hard money. And also in that same vein, which countries are fighting their citizenry. And as we always say, forcing them to have fun staying poor. Anyways, welcome to Simply Bitcoin. We are your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution. We cover breaking news, culture and nomadic warfare. We bring on Bitcoiners from all around the world, from the biggest names to the everyday Bitcoiner. We got them all and we will be your guide through the separation of money and state. And of course, I am not here alone, guys. I am here with Dell, the funky hodl sapien. How are you doing this morning, Dell? Good. I'm dandy. I'm chilling, relaxing, moisturized in my own lane, sitting in a 45 gallon tub of lotion right now. It feels pretty luxurious. Absolutely love it. OK, well, Dell, what are we going to cover on the culture today? We're going to cover that you can't really stop the Internet. You can't stop things from happening the way you want it to. I imagine most of the people that come to this channel are interested in Bitcoin surviving. That's my assumption. There might be some people that come pass by like, oh, what's this all about? But I get the impression that the regulars that I see in the chat, you're Roman, you're wine a kiss. Tyler Durden, what I'm not going to try and talk for wine a kiss. He's a he's a he's a strange cat. That one is people that I see in day in and day out. They're people that are they understand Bitcoin to some degree. They like it to some degree. And they're yeah, thumbs up to that Bitcoin thing. But the idea that it could die or shut down is not something that a lot of us think about all that much. We're like, oh, it can't happen. But here's a question for you, Opti. If you were given a challenge, let's say let's say somebody comes along, Michael Saylor, whatever anybody that you know has the money to say, I'm going to give you a million dollar bounty to shut down Bitcoin. Could you do that? You think you could? Not for a million. There's literally a half a trillion dollar bounty on Bitcoin. You got to you got to you got to put those numbers up. Well, like, do you think you could do it at all? Me personally? No. Yeah. Yeah, exactly. And so the idea that there is some individual out there or group of people that can shut it down is preposterous. But yet there's still and we're going to play this clip. People out there that are honestly, they're relatively smart people in many fields and there's a lot of really smart people that don't understand Bitcoin. It's like shut down. Shut down the Internet. What are you going to do? Go in. People, people are concerned about that, Del. That is definitely on people's minds. Well, I get that. But why? Like, tell me how that happens. Like, walk me through exactly how how it how that would work. Like, please. Like, if you can do it, if somebody can do it, I truly as much as I would like to see tomorrow, would like you would like to see somebody shut down Bitcoin. So we're going to be talking about that in the culture. Like, you can't do it. Like, I want you to if you can, if somebody in chat can do that, by all means, go and do it. Because we need to know that that's a vulnerability when we need to know how that could happen. And oh, wow, there's a guy that's in the simply Bitcoin chat that has the ability to go and flip a switch and shut off Bitcoin. That we should know about that. And I mean, that'd be so funny. Someone in the chat just shuts it off. Anyway, anyway, side tangents. I mean, we even see it and we hear this all the time. I hear this all the time when I talk to my normie friends out there. They're like, what if, you know, like in twenty seventeen, it was like, what if China bans Bitcoin? And like they did it and it didn't stop Bitcoin. I am convinced that every three letter agency around the world, that nation states have also tried to attack Bitcoin and they continue to try to attack Bitcoin. But they can't stop this. They cannot stop digital money for the digital world. And even if the even if we got like some weird by chance EMP or something that shut off all of electricity, we will never go back to a time without the Internet. I am fully convinced of that. The Internet is something that that is ubiquitous with the modern world. It put a pause on things. If people talk about that, like, oh, well, what about. OK, well, just imagine if things that are escalating over in the Middle East and then the whole Russia, Ukraine thing, like imagine things really take off. And they detonate a nuke in the atmosphere over every country in the world and all the Internet goes out. What about your Bitcoin then? Like, do you even hear what you're saying? Like, imagine that scenario and the thing that is going to be on people's minds is food, shelter, is my family safe? And then probably after the first 24 hours, where can I get a I'm just going to say it, a hand job where where the sex workers like where where can I go and trade these bullets that have been stocking up for, you know, a little me time with with Old Destiny over there? And I do mean old because she was in the business for a hot minute and she's looking a little more now, but she's got the experience. And that's what you're going to want to go to when times are tough. You're going to want to go to the person that knows how to get you to that happy place. So, yeah, you're going to check in on Destiny and give her some bullets for some fun times. But you're not going to be thinking about Bitcoin. You're not going to be thinking about all my cat pictures and all the trad wives on Twitter talking about how they're grass feeding their goats. No, you're not going to be paying attention to any of that. You're gonna be like, what do I need to survive? That's it. That is that is it. That's all you're going to be paying attention to. So this idea that, oh, what happens to your Bitcoin? It's like, go fuck yourself. What are you talking about? Listen to yourself. Is grandma alive in a nursing home? Because there's no oxygen on. What's your first concern if the nukes go off and there's no Internet Opti? Is it is my note still on? No, it's thinking about people in my local community and can I survive? Exactly. Exactly. All right. Well, this is going to be a spicy one. I can already tell this is going to be a spicy one. Let's get into the show, guys. This time seeds do it yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper. Don't store your generational wealth on paper. Paper is prone to water damage, fire damage. You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth, titanium. Your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps. And once your words are in, they aren't going anywhere. No risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere. Titanium stamp seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire. They're also crush proof, waterproof, non corrosive and time proof. All things that paper is not allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for the long haul. Stamp your seed on stamp seed. Yeah, the chat. You guys are wild. Love you guys. Anyway, we made this easy for you. Scan the QR code. Make sure your seed phrases backed up on something stronger than just a piece of paper in your sock drawer. Make sure it's backed up on titanium, guys. This is the way scan the QR code. Get yourself a stamp seed kit. And we have been in the talks of getting a simply Bitcoin branded one. But maybe maybe you don't want that OPSEC unfriendly version. But anyways, scan the QR code. Go check it out. Get yourself one. Stamp your seed in titanium. All right, guys. Anyways, we're over here on the numbers. We're at Clark Moody's dashboard. Of course, my favorite number is the block height. We are currently at eight hundred and fifteen thousand eight hundred and eighty six. Take talk next block. Honey, bad you don't care. Blocks keep coming in. We are what? Twenty four thousand one hundred and fourteen blocks away from the halving roughly around April 20th of twenty twenty four. So it's happening in time, guys. We know exactly what's happening with the monetary policy that is Bitcoin. You love to see it. Bitcoin is my stable coin. Bitcoin is stability. Anyways, the current price on Bitcoin is thirty five thousand three hundred and forty dollars per Bitcoin. The Moscow time, a .k .a. how much your fiat dollars worth, a .k .a. how much Bitcoin you can buy for a single U .S. dollar is two thousand eight hundred and thirty cents per dollar. The percentage of total Bitcoin that will ever be issued is ninety three point zero three percent. The market cap and fiat terms of Bitcoin is six hundred and ninety billion dollars or six hundred ninety point three billion dollars. The realized monetary inflation of Bitcoin taking fiat currencies to school is one point seventy four percent. It's going to get cut in half. Well, I think it's going to slowly. Is it going to get cut in half? I think it's going to cut in half. I think that's what the halving does to it. Anyways, Bitcoin versus gold market cap is currently at five point two seven percent. We are only at five point two seven percent of the gold market cap. The hard money gang. We're coming for gold. Gold market cap is ten trillion dollars. Only five percent of that, guys. And you guys are bearish out there. Couldn't be me. Can't relate. Anyways, the total public lightning capacity is five thousand three hundred and five point zero seven BTC. The hash rate has been going absolutely parabolic. Of course, this is just a rough guesstimate of what is going on on the Bitcoin network. But something is happening and people are uploading and turning on a lot of A6. The last 90 days, we are at four hundred and twenty point one exahashes. The pending fees. Oh, my goodness. It's spiking right now. Eleven point four four BTC, at least according to the mempool that Clark Moody is connected to. We've been telling you for a while. You wanted to make sure that you are consolidating your UTXOs because things are going to get crazy. This will probably cool down a little bit. I think I did hear that there's some like ordinal BRC 20 stuff going on right now. Yeah. So that's probably why we're seeing this spike right now in the fee market. So once it gets a little cooler, oops, oops, sorry. It gets a little cooler. Not wrong, though. Yeah, not wrong. Once you once you get a little cooler in the fee market, I suggest you guys take the opportunity to consolidate your UTXOs. Make sure that you have good UTXO hygiene. Anyways. All right, guys, I'm going to connect last night's TTO that I did with CJ. I hope you guys watch that. I do have it up here for you guys to show you that you need to go watch this. And I took a little piece out of there. But here we are. We got Neil Kashkar. And remember who he is. He's the crazy guy that was coming out when we were going through the the, you know, the flu pandemic. And he was telling us that they can print unlimited money. And they clarified that question. And we got the memes of him with crazy eyes, like, wait, so you're telling me you can print unlimited money? And he said, yes, that's exactly what I'm telling you. Well, here he is again. And if you listen to last night's TTO. And you will listen to this this morning. You really start to realize just how detached these quote unquote elites are, how detached the Fed is from reality. You really would ask yourself what is going on. And again, I reference the white paper constantly on here because it's literally in the first paragraph of the white paper. Satoshi was so prescient when it came to this because he saw the fundamental problem of the fiat system. It is its trust based system, inherent trust that you need to just trust that these people know what they're doing. And we're seeing in real time that people still seem to trust them. And if you look at the data. There is no reason to trust them. Anyways, Neel Kashkari in this little video here goes, I'm not seeing a lot of evidence that the economy is weakening. And he discusses market expectations for an interest rate cut by the central bank next year. So let's just listen to him and remember the idea that the only reason the system is continuing to hobble along as it is, is because people out there still believe these people in the suits that they know what is going on. Trust the experts. They know exactly what's going on. Trust the guy in the suit on the television telling you that they have the economy under control, that interest rates are under control, that the Fed knows where we're going. And if you really look at the data, it may be completely different and telling you a different story. Anyways, let's listen to this, guys. You said that people want certainty and that you can't give it to them. And I understand that. But people don't just want certainty. They also want some sort of guiding philosophy. Do you think that Fed Chair Powell has outlined some sort of guiding philosophy on where the bar is to cut rates, on where the bar is to raise them further? Well, I think he's articulated very clearly that we're committed to getting back to 2 % inflation, right? There's been some chatter amongst economists that maybe we should raise the inflation target. I think he's done a great job saying that is not on the table. We're not going to do that. We're going to get inflation back to 2%. And we're going to let the data guide us. We've moved very aggressively. We've made a lot of progress on inflation. We're not done yet, meaning inflation is not back to our target. And if we need to do more, we will. There seems to be a feeling in markets that the bar to cut rates has been lowered over the past week or two weeks. That suddenly, not only are we reaching a pause, and have we seen a peak in the Fed funds rate, but that also the Fed will cut next year, maybe surgically. Neil Dutta is talking about that. He's coming up next. Do you want to push back against that? Do you think that the bar to cut is still just as high as it was? I have no idea where market participants are getting that. There's no discussion amongst me and any of my colleagues about when we're going to start preparing to cut rates. The only thing that's been talked about at all is that at some point, when inflation is well on its way back down, if we didn't back off a little bit, the real rates would be getting tighter and tighter and tighter. And that's real, but that's math. But is there enough weakness currently in the market, in the economy, I should say, to give you that sense at this point? Look at the last GDP print. I mean, does anybody look at that and think, oh my gosh, the economy? For the last 12 months, GDP has been very strong. The labor market continues to be quite robust. Yes, the unemployment rate has ticked up to 3 .9%, but we've also seen a huge surge of labor supply, which is really positive, come online. So I'm looking at this. I'm seeing consumers that are strong. By the way, my airplane that I came here on was 100 % full yesterday. It's going to be 100 % full today. I'm not seeing a lot of evidence that the economy is weakening.

Oh no, that was Bryan Adams, but we had a great time. Coming up on this podcast, I'm gonna do an NBA Power Poll at the top because there's no games as I'm taping this on Tuesday. So let's, where are we after two weeks? I tried to fly through this. I limited myself to 22 minutes. I think I went two minutes over, but I flew through it, tried to get off as many comments as I possibly could. And then our old friend Malcolm Gladwell is gonna come on and do some sports hour stuff. There's some things that he's noticed about direction sports are going in that he doesn't like, and we're gonna try to fix it. So that's the podcast, first, our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, I'm gonna throw an NBA Power Poll at you. I'm not sure I'm gonna do this every Tuesday, but I definitely wanna do this some Tuesdays. I'm gonna go through all 30 teams as fast as possible. And I'm gonna throw things out that I feel like are important when necessary. Pot shots, important comments, things I've noticed, some fake trades, you've known me for a while. It's gonna be all the typical stuff. Going backwards from 30 to one, I'll give you the groups as we go. The first group is called the Dregs. That's Washington number 30. They are 30th in defense. And the only reason they're 30th in defense is because we only have 30 teams. I actually think there's some way they could have been 36th in defense. They're the only team in the entire league that I do not wanna watch on league pass for any reason at all. They're one and five, 15 .6 point differential against them. Shoot this team into the sun. I cannot believe House thought this team was gonna go over 24 wins. They might not go over 14 wins. They're awful. I never want them on my TV. Next group, probably the lottery. I say probably, but I'm gonna zip through these teams and then go back to somebody. 29 Utah, 28 Portland, 27 Detroit, 26 San Antonio, 25 Charlotte, who is way more fun than I expected they would be to watch, and 24 Chicago. It just feels like the lottery's in the future for all these teams. I wanna talk about San Antonio really quick. Three and four, kind of a sneaky, tough schedule. They played Phoenix twice, the Clippers, Dallas, that goofy Indiana team, Houston, and Toronto. They're minus 8 .6 point differential because they've gotten blown out a couple of times, and they're 29th on defense, which I was surprised by per 100 possessions. The thing that I wanted to point out here, because this one Benyama thing is super important. This is the best teenager that's come into the league, at least since LeBron. We can debate. LeBron, I think in year two, for two months at least, was a teenager when he was putting up 27, seven, and seven. When he started his 27, seven, seven cycle. Wembe might be the best teenager I've ever seen. They're starting Jeremy Sohan at point guard, and Pop's been transparent about this. No, no, we know we're gonna take some lumps. We're trying to figure this out. I went to the game when they played the Clippers, I talked about it in a previous pod, and it was just an absolute debacle, watching poor Sohan try to run the offense, bring the ball up. Now we're seeing teams starting to pressure them because he's not a point guard. He's a small forward. There's crazy stats now. Trey Jones, just by being on this team and not being Jeremy Sohan, is now one of the best advanced metrics point guards of all time. Right now, his per 100 on -off is plus 28 .3 because Sohan is minus 22 .7. That's how disparate the two things are. Which brings me to my point, this is too important. You have the best teenager maybe ever. You have one of the best league pass players already in the entire league in Wimby. I have no idea how long he's gonna stay healthy, knock on wood, hear me knock really loud. I just got my dog going. No, that was me, dumb ass. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is on Indiana, and they have Halliburton, who's averaging a 24 -12. He's awesome. They have Nembhard, who's great as a backup. McConnell's like, he's 13 minutes a game. He's clearly a trade piece for them. Just go get him. I'm not saying San Antonio has to make the playoffs, but they need to be entertaining, and Wimby needs to play with point guards. He clearly needs just to play off people, high screens, all that stuff. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is my choice. They have all their own firsts. They're not gonna trade those obviously, but they have some goofy picks. They have Charlotte's top 14 protected first. They have a pretty good Chicago first that I wouldn't give up. They have a first swap with Boston. There's ways to do this. I would just put that Charlotte pick next year on the table and just grab them because you guys hit the lottery. Literally, with Wimby -Dyama, literally hit the lottery. You hit the lottery and you hit the lottery. Get to do two point guards. We're not asking for much here. I wanna watch this guy. I wanna enjoy him play basketball. All right, next section is panic time. Number 23, Memphis. They're one and six. They finally got out to Schneider. And number 22, Sacramento, who lost twice to Houston in three days by 18 and 25. No Darren Fox for either game. Panic time in this respect. I know we're six games in the season, seven games in the season, but the West is one of those things where you're gonna look up and the car is left. The car has left the driveway and your family is gone. You're gonna be basically Kevin and home alone if you don't get your shit together. And I don't even wanna be two games under 500 in the West. That's how deep and good the West is. So when you're one and six, like all of a sudden two and 12, two and 13, Sacramento could all of a sudden be three and nine. I would just be nervous constantly. This is not like last year when the Lakers started out two and 10 and ended up making the playoffs. Nobody is doing that this year. The cutoff line is gonna be 46 wins. Memphis looks, they just can't score. And I think it's gonna be really, we talked about this verno last week. It's gonna be really hard for them to crawl back and be at least like 11 and 14, something like that by the time Ja comes back. The Sacramento thing, we predicted this when we did the over -under preview, like the conference is way better and they stayed basically the same. And now Fox is hurt. So it can take Fox going out for 10 games and all of a sudden you're not even in the playing game. I would just be nervous, so it's both of those teams. Again, it's early. Next group, friskier than we hoped. We have number 21, Brooklyn. Ben Simmons averaging almost 11 rebounds and seven assists a game. And yet you can't play him at crunch time, bizarre. Number 20, Orlando. Number 19, Houston. Number 18, Indiana. And number 17, Toronto. Just quickly on Houston, a delightful league pass team. I had no idea. It's like being at a buffet dinner and somebody brings like some, have you ever had a fried oyster? It's like, great, I'll try that. And then it's delicious. They play hard. I like watching them. And I did not expect a Shungun to be a potential all -star, but that's where we are. They're three and three. Again, they beat Sacramento twice, we'll see. But Orlando at number 20. Every time I do this, I'm gonna have a BS all -star of the week. I used to do this when I wrote my column back in the day. I used to call them the Bill Simmons all -stars, just people that I just liked for whatever reason. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't really know fully what he is. He tries harder than everybody on every other team. He really gives a shit. He feels additive in all these different ways. And yet at the same time, he'll absolutely like airball a three in one of the biggest moments of the game. But that guy cares. I watched a game where he got this hustle rebound. Can't remember who they, they lost at the buzzer. Get this hustle rebound and dribble back out and took a three and missed it and put his jersey over his head for like the next minute and a half. I actually think he might've been crying. He was so upset they lost. He is the most competitive random guy in the league. I love Jalen Suggs. Oh, as Saruti said, it's the Laker game. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't know what he is. He might just end up being like a seventh man on a championship team at some point. He's gonna have a moment on a good team. I don't know if Orlando's gonna be the team, but it's gonna happen for that dude. I also really like Anthony Black more than I thought, but we'll see. It's early for this team. Palo hasn't gotten going. Somehow they're four and three. We'll see when the schedule gets harder. Toronto at number 17, just the Lakers miss Schroeder. And I like what Schroeder's doing in Toronto. They're three and four, but they easily could be five and two. I've been watching them because I have their over under, I bet on. And I like where Toronto's at. I think they're better than they were last year. I think they're at least a playing team. Number 18, Indiana though. So their second in offensive rating and 25th in defense. In the 25th, I was actually surprised it wasn't worse. They can't guard anybody. They're shooting 43s a game. Their top six guys are all over 40 % three point shooting. They're kind of like the 80s Nuggets, but with threes. And they just play with a certain pace. And some days it's going to be bad. Like the Celtics put 155 points on them and it probably could have been 160 if they'd made some shots. Hal Burton's special. He's a 24 -12 this year. But the crazy thing about their offense is that Matherin's been terrible. And Matherin was a guy that they were like, this is going to be our guy. He's making a leap. We're going to trade Buddy Heald. We got to give the card keys to Matherin in that spot. And he's been bad. And their offense has still been pretty good. This is a team that anytime you see them, I don't know if you bet basketball, but if they're like plus 11, plus 12, it's like they could beat anybody any night. I'm just telling you. I'm not saying they're going to win a round in the playoffs, but just night to night, that's a team that they could just go 22 for 45 from three, make some shots. And Hal Burton, they actually should be five and two. Hal Burton blew the last possession against Charlotte the other night. But I've enjoyed watching them. I've watched an insane amount of basketball, by the way. All right, next group, the wildcards. I don't have a lot to say about these teams, but we'll go in order. Number 16, New Orleans, just seem jinxed. I'll come back to them in a second. Number 15, Cleveland. I want to see them with Garland and just, I want to watch them for a couple of weeks. I like the Struce edition, but we'll see. The Knicks, they're three and four. Nice win against the Clippers. The Randall thing continues to be nuts. Now he's taking out guys in the other team. Clippers 13, just traded for Harden. We talked about the Knicks and Clippers last week. Look, the Clippers, they played one game and they got killed by the Knicks. They're worse. I told you that last week. Still feel that way. Guess what they can't do now? Any transition stuff. The Knicks, 26 to six in fast break points last night. Rebounding. They got out, rebounded by 17 by the Knicks. Harden just brings so many things that you don't want in a starting five, but then he brings the great passing and the scoring and he can have the ball all the time. They don't need anyone to have the ball all the time because they have all these other guys who need the ball. I just don't like the trade. I continue to not like it and I don't understand it. I actually liked the team they had before they made the trade. So congrats again, Clippers. Number 12, Miami. 28th offensively. Kind of feels worse when you watch them. They haven't had their full team for a couple weeks. I'm not gonna judge them at all until December. I'm not gonna judge Dallas either. Dallas I have at number 11. They're six and one, fourth in offense. They've had a really easy schedule. So that's why, let's see what happens. Their one loss is to Denver. Let's see what happens when they play some tough teams all in a row and have one of those four games in six nights or three on the road. One of those situations. But they are in better shape than they were last year. And you look at the Grant Williams piece, which I'm not spiteful when I watch my old players. I'm rooting for Grant Williams. It's like seeing somebody you dated that you still have a good relationship with. It was nice to see him do well for them. Derek Lively seems like they have something. We talked about him last week, but he's at least like a rim runner in that kind of Nick Claxton world, but maybe a little more violent alley -oop or a little young Clint Cappelli. The Kyrie thing is the piece that I'm really interested in this. He finally had a good game last night, but for this season, 24 % shooting, 3 .8 free throws a game, which are always the two numbers to look at with Kyrie. What's he shooting threes? Is he getting in the line? And so far it's been neither, but he seems happy. When you watch them, they've been a surprisingly pleasant watch, and he seems like in a good spot. So I don't want to jinx it because as annoying as he's been over the years, and you know my stance on Kyrie, I just don't trust him. And I just feel like a seven -year track record of imploding kind of has to start to mean something after a while, but it is fun to watch him play basketball. And it does feel like he's got a specific spot on this team. They don't have to rely on him too much. It's very similar to where he was in 15 and 16 and 17 with the Cavs where he could kind of float in and out like a cat with LeBron. It's like, I'm feeling it. Oh, all right, let's give Kyrie the ball. The shooting going down though, it's a small sample size, but they also haven't been playing tough teams yet. And I'm just monitoring that because with guards, it can kind of sometimes go sideways pretty fast, and you don't realize it happened until after it happened. Just quickly going backwards to number 16, New Orleans, because they lost Ingram, they lost McCollum already. And they have this Hawkins who they drafted that everybody liked coming out of the draft, but the fact that he can play right away has actually kind of saved them a little bit. I just, I still feel like we need to do some sort of ceremony or something with them. Like we need the people from the Conjuring to just do something with New Orleans basketball. It just shouldn't be this bad every year. Your team shouldn't have two, three major injuries every year. You should have good luck at some point. And this goes back to the seventies. Remember, when they moved, when they became the New Orleans Jazz, their first major, major giant trade was for Gail Goodrich with the Lakers. They had to give up two first rounders, and he immediately blew out his Achilles. He played, I'm gonna say, less than a season. And one of the picks turned out to be Magic Johnson. So that's where we started with New Orleans, and it's been awful ever since. Nothing good has happened in this team other than they've won a couple of lotteries, but even the lotteries they won, the Davis, Anthony when they were in Charlotte before they got to New Orleans, they bring him to New Orleans and he wants to leave. And then they win the Zion thing, which seemed like the luckiest thing that ever happened to them. And meanwhile, we're still waiting for him to play two straight months. So Conjuring people, something. We need something to happen with that team. All right, the top 10. We're at a good pace right now. Where are we at? Yeah, feeling good. This is working. Young and hungry is the next thing. We got Oklahoma City at number 10 and Atlanta at number nine. If you remember, Atlanta was one of the, these are the two teams I was going nuts for before the season for their over -unders. I love the Atlanta over -under. I love the New Orleans over. And I like what I've seen from both. OK sees four and three, Atlanta's four and three. Atlanta's sixth in offense. And that's notable because Trae Young has sucked again shooting west. He's 28 % from three. Last year's 33 % from three. This might not be happening the next Steph Curry thing. Like what age does he have to hit where we have to go? All right, he's not the next Steph Curry. Because I think I hit that age last year at age, when I was age 53. I think I hit that for Trae. They killed Minnesota, which is notable. We'll talk about Minnesota in a second. But they really, I watched that game and they really, really, really handled them. I like this Atlanta team. And I think there's a path for them to be a three or a four seed if Trae can get going. And then OKC, trade for a big already. You're a guy short, like stop. You guys have a chance to be like a 50 win team. What are you doing? I want to see what's going on with Josh Getty in about two weeks. Whether it looks different than it has for the first couple of weeks here. I don't like, he's not going in the free throw line at all. 1 .3 a game. 26 % three point shooting, which we knew. He can't shoot threes. But there's also like the Chet piece of it. Seems like it's throwing them off. And I've watched games where they've taken them out at crunch time.
Nashville Shooter's Manifesto Released by Steven Crowder
"With this intra conservative like, Oh, I did it. Crowder's people got it out there. Good for them. They deserve the credit. Any other media outlet acting like a little child refusing to credit them. Shame on you. Shame. Thank you. Here's some stuff from the trans shooters manifesto that the media obviously wanted it hidden because the media has played up the threat of white supremacy around every corner only for the last five or so years. The trans terrorist calls it death day. Notes. She notes here. The day has finally come. I can't believe it's here. Don't know how I was able to get this far but here I am. I can tell you because our FBI has been too busy investigating grandma with a MAGA hat who spent six seconds inside the rotunda of the Capitol I'm a little nervous. She notes but excited to been cited for the past two weeks. There were several times I could have been caught especially in the summer of 2021. Look at that Jim. It says it right there. There were several times I could have been caught planning a terrorist in Nashville. But what was happening in the summer of 2020? Oh they were spying on Donald Trump. The evidence is that. None of that matters now she notes. I'm almost an hour and 7 minutes away. Can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm ready. I hope my victims aren't. My only fear is if anything goes wrong I'll do my best to prevent of the sort. God let my wrath Take over my anxiety. I might be 10 minutes tops. It might be 3 to 7. It's going to be quick. I hope I have a high death count.
A highlight from These 5 Altcoins Will Explode In November!
"The crypto market is pumping and Total 3 just broke out of a yearly long downtrend. In today's video I want to run you through my favourite altcoins for Q4 2024, specifically zooming in on this week and the month of November as a whole to look at some of the altcoins with specific catalysts at the moment and alts that could potentially outperform based on current events. I also want to talk about some of my favourite trades, a couple of which are actually also short setups as I think there are a couple coins which are starting to look frothy and run you through exactly what I'm thinking at this point in the market. If you're looking forward to this video, smash the like button, subscribe if you're not already subscribed, and without further ado, let's get straight into the show. It would be remiss of me not to start with Bitcoin, just on a quick Bitcoin update, almost looks like a bull flag here is starting to form on the four -alley timeframe and the daily, but more structurally zooming out and looking at things for Bitcoin, we can see that it's clearly still holding above its range high, resistance flipped into support at the 31 ,500 zone. It's still in an uptrend, we can see it had multiple support retests of this channel, although it did break down below, it's now successfully holding above. Maybe we do get some sort of pullback back down to the mean deviation, that is something that I'm looking for, but generally this is positive signs for Bitcoin undoubtedly from a macro perspective. It's very nice that it also broke above the QEMA 200, this is one of my major bull versus bear indicators. Typically when Bitcoin is above this level for a sustained period of time, that does indicate sustainable bullish momentum and vice versa when it holds down for a sustained period of time, as you can see when it held underneath in March 2022, it pretty much went on a yearly long downtrend. Conversely when it breaks above as it did in January 2023, it's been able to maintain bullish momentum pretty much all the way through, disregarding one of the fake outs that we did get after we got a short term shake out with a bunch of regulatory FUD happening back in September, but ever since then it's bounced strongly and responded strongly to the upside. So that is where Bitcoin is looking strong, but what about the altcoins, what are we seeing in the altcoin market? Well I think there has been a real turning of the tide for alts, a lot of people now starting to perpetuate this bull market is back narrative and many people starting to foam it back into the alt market. So if you want to take advantage of some of that new momentum, the first thing we need to do is identify the strongest coins in the market and in today's show let's go through some of the coins that I think are exhibiting strength not only based on price action, so technicals but also based on fundamentals and some of the underlying catalysts that are powering a lot of these narratives. The first narrative I want to talk about is crypto gaming, it's one that has been silent for quite some time but is starting to come back into the forefront of the market with a lot of creators now starting to talk about crypto gaming again. Alex Becker even said he was going to do a video on gaming on Wednesday, Elio doing a lot of gaming coverage again, a lot of the big creators starting to pick it up, Hustle of course he hasn't gone anywhere but his gaming videos from a view perspective are now starting to really uptick in terms of general interest and you can see the interest is back in this sector. Long term gaming is a vertical I'm really bullish on, I think it's one of the strongest crypto adoption verticals we have for retail to come into the market apart from speculation which crypto basically is one big casino in a way right, but crypto gaming is a bonafide way for users to come into the ecosystem and use web3 without even knowing that they're using web3 so I'm bullish on it long term, in the short term though I am seeing it starting to garner more steam, how sustainable it will be let's see but there are a couple of specific altcoins which I want to point out now which are bucking the trend even within the niche. The first one is YGG which is Yield Guild Games and they have a big conference on November 18th till November 25th in the Philippines so this is one that started to run, we know that pre -conference runs have been some of the most powerful trades in recent times in the market, we can see this with Adjix and FET and the AI coin narrative, XRP, Solana running into Breakpoint, this is the next conference that's still a couple of weeks away so do we see a gaming run into this summit, I mean maybe but YGG specifically does stand out to me considering you're still going to be able to position yourself around two weeks ahead of the pinnacle, the apex of this summit so definitely that's one to keep your eye on, YGG, a lot of the other crypto games as well are starting to tick up if I have to pick my favourites in terms of trades over the next few weeks if gaming does continue in its uptrend, I think Axie Infinity is one that I'm looking at, this one pumps really hard when the market decides to bid, Alluvium as well is one that's already been pumping but I'm starting to see a lot of big creators talking about it and a lot of hype around it, Steppen is an interesting one, we all know how well Steppen performs when gaming catches a bid, on the daily this is one of the strongest performers in crypto gaming alongside Vulcan Forge which is also on my watchlist because it just broke above a major level on the higher time frame so it broke above resistance and that is also looking super strong, so those are some of the gaming coins I'm looking at, I'm sure Hustle shows will do the more specific short term trades some justice but if you want to look more at actually trading a lot of the gaming coins, what I'm doing is I'm actually looking at a lot of the on -chain data because a lot of the smart money trades on -chain so I do like to track the on -chain whale net flow and one way you can do that is by going into an application like Kyber AI, if you sort by market cap by more than 100 you can kind of filter for a lot of the bigger gaming coins, you can see like PYR here is actually number 2 out of any altcoin in terms of its bullish scores, this is an AI generated metric based on machine learning data that is compounded from Kyber AI's database worth of resources and you can see here in terms of on -chain analysis we're starting to see a lot of traders flick into the long territory with 249 buys versus 202 sells over the past day and you can also see that trading volumes experiencing an uptick alongside net flow to whale wallets which is also ticking in the green territory which means whale wallets are essentially buying, negative net flow to whale wallets generally indicates that whales are selling so this is a positive sign that shows the big players they're starting to position themselves in gaming so definitely if you want to try and use this kind of data check it out on Kyber AI there's a link in the description below to sign up for early access because you're a crypto banter subscriber or at least we hope so by using the link you can get early access versus the rest of the pack that have to wait you'll be expedited as part of the crypto banter member so Kyber AI definitely check it out and get some of that on -chain data for yourself not only for PYR but for a lot of other coins in the market that are available on -chain most coins are on -chain obviously some coins they're traded more in centralized exchanges so I usually use it for the ones that are mostly traded on -chain PYR being one that is heavily traded on a chain like Ethereum as well.
A highlight from MASSIVE XRP PUMP! (Ethereum Not Done Yet!)
"Today is a great day to have a new set in crypto. How are we all doing today? It's 11 -6. It's November 6th. It's 11 -32. Sorry. It's 10 -33am. How are we all doing today? We got a new set. We got some new people. This is going to be phenomenal. Look at that lighting down below, folks. It's lovely. I'm loving it. Hey, chat, let us know what you think about it. But guys, we're going to be talking about XRP. Why is XRP pumping? What is going on with Ethereum? Is there more activity? XRP is the crypto market's back is all -coin season starting. Also some huge Bitcoin ETF news as well and Grok AI, the AI that most resembles a caveman's name. But yeah, we got Drew and Kelly. I don't know which way to look. Do I look at the camera? Do I look at chat? Do I look at these two lovely gentlemen? Look me in my eyes. All right. Let's maintain eye contact for the entire show. Love the new set. It looks amazing. Nice. Nice. Okay. A little bit of an echo. Special shout out to our entire team here at Hit Network, BJ, Aaron, and Joel, and Bobby, and Owen. There's so many people who just work tirelessly. If I forgot anybody's name, a lot of you. Love you all. We appreciate how much hard work you do. Really special shout out there. Drew, any message on the beginning of the set? How do you feel about it? Man, it's just - You helped carry some things. Yeah, no, it's nice to have a fresh start. And I mean, this is just, it feels as professional as we act every day. Oh, that's not at all. I mean, I don't know. We bring the heat. So we have a new set up here. It's nice to be able to conversate back and forth with you guys, bounce ideas by each other a little bit more organically as we go through the news. So - Legit, because he DZ being a future Jimmy Kimmel. No, I will never be the CIA's puppet master. Okay. I will never be their puppet. All right. Let's get right into the show here, folks. Guys, let's see if I can share your screen. Make sure you're following us on Discover Crypto. We just put out two phenomenal videos over the weekend. In this Cardano video, I also added it to my pin tweet here, if you want to see it. But I highly recommend you go check it out on YouTube. Get in there, get in the chat, leave a couple of questions, we'll start replying to the videos. I don't know how I'll do it with the next video, working on some top three tips to master the bull run for the first hour that the video's out, we'll go ahead and maybe we'll engage with you. So if you've got any questions, I'll jump in there. Also, we did another video on Jimmy Bitcoin. The heist Bitcoin is stronger than any Bitcoin heist in history, billions of dollars. So it's a really, really good video. I recommend it. He's like the Bitcoin heist meister. He's the heist meister. Yeah, yeah. He's not Heisman, but he's the heist man. All right, folks, make sure you go to hit merch as well. And I think it's time for us to just get right into this Ripple story, folks. Ripple gaining momentum, $850 million, and whale buys push price above 75 cents here. You see it broke out above a critical 65 cents resistance, and now it looks like it's off to the races. So over the last two weeks, crypto whales have been spotted buying XRP aggressively. Not only are the whales buying, they're buying aggressively, folks. As of 2023, the event edges is now the best time to get crypto. You know what? I can see why Bobby's wanting me to move left. I tend to lean to my right. All right, between October 24th and November 6th, the whales, how much XRP did they acquire? 1 billion .26 XRP, folks. And if XRP does say go to $2, $2 .50, even $4, talking about billions of dollars here. So they're bringing their new balances to a new 2023 peak. So we're at a new peak for XRP balances on the whale wallets here. Now there is a big event coming. It's the 2023 edition of Swell Digital Asset Conference in Dubai later this week. It's an invite -only event. So we'll feature keynote speeches and dialogue with some leaders, regulators, and innovators. Now Drew, you're kind of Mr. XRP here. I think you're probably the biggest fan of XRP. The whales are buying. Now are they going to start dumping? No, I mean, we'll always see a little bit of sell pressure, but I think that banks being even just slightly willing to test out XRP and its remittance payment systems and these continuing patterns growth that I see for Ripple in general, I think that things across the world are seeing this. The US still has the gray area, but the rest of the world is feeling ready for it. So I don't think that that'll be on us anytime soon, a big dump. All right. All right. More conspiracy talk. You guys are always on point. No, no, no. We got to get off the rails here. Poor Jimmy. You know what? Poor Jimmy Zong. That's the only Jimmy I like talking about. All right. Here we have the social dominance chart. So this blue line is where people mentioned XRP. So when you see a little bit of spike in social media chatter, oftentimes you're going to see a little bit of a price increase as well. But sometimes social media chatter precludes the pump. Sometimes it's after the pump. They're just, it depends because as a coin doubles in price over a month, people will just start talking about it naturally, even if nothing else is going on. But so here's the social dominance metric is showing the percentage share of a cryptocurrency in comparison to the 50 most talked about projects in the crypto media channels. So they'll just look at keywords, how many TikToks are being made and compare it to the other 49 coins there. But having cleared the resistance at $0 .65, XRP price now faces minimal resistance on the road to $0 .70 as well. So not only that, though, we also have Deaton coming out. He was coming out in favor. So there's a little bit of a settlement with the SEC versus XRP months ago where, hey, programmatic sales, hey, that seems fine. But when you're selling to a hedge fund, that seems bad. So we had one win, we had one loss, and we're saying, so this is like a 50 -50, right? This is like a 50 -50 win -lose. So Deaton's coming out saying it is not 50 -50, it is 90 % win, 10 % loss. So we're looking at more of a 90 -10 ratio here. So here, let's just get his quote out here. In a recent post, he strongly refuted the idea that the result was close to a 50 -50 outcome here. The people who argued that the SEC got a 50 -50 victory in the ripple crates are 100 % right wrong here. I'm still messing around with it. It was more like a 90 -10 in Ripple's favor. If Ripple ends up paying $20 million or less, it's a 99 .9 % legal victory. Did it feel like a 99 .9 % legal victory, Drew? Yeah, I mean, absolutely. A lot of the talk from famously like Pomp when we first got the Ripple case laid out, he's like, oh, you're holding securities, but kind of dancing on the graves of people that held XRP, even in the retail, which I think was just an absolute spit on the face disservice and a to our freedom to transact and to have new systems come about to do those transactions. So seeing even these chunks of wins from XRP and Ripple are massive, massive gains in confidence for people across the world. Now they're looking at this thing and many people are calling it the most regulated crypto on earth just from these recent wins. You brought up gains of confidence. You think I care about the gains of confidence? I don't care about the gains of confidence. I only care about the gains in price. And that's where we're going to go to Kelly here. Kelly, we have some charts here. I don't know if you're looking at XRP, but yeah, 65 cents, 70 cents. Is that all just a facade or is there a real support and resistance happening here? Well, it's throwing it here to the chart. We can see that this is essentially a chart I've been looking at for some time. And interestingly, we have this sort of uptrend parallel channel that on this break to the upside, which is when we have that initial news breaking of the sec the court case stuff that we got this massive pump and essentially rejected right here at a known level that goes all the way back. I mean, this goes all the way back to this base point here, December, 2020. So this is a pretty interesting when the price was going, I was looking at this suggesting, and this is going to be likely turnaround point. We got a stiff rejection off that until we broke down and tested the lower bound here. Got a deviation below. Now why will we have a deviation below is because these smart money people out there, these the people that really understand how to move the markets, they try to do everything they can to trigger those of you and those of me and drew DZ. Everybody that's in this market is subject to emotions. And those that are in control of their emotions and have a sound strategy and risk management doesn't get triggered by this consistently. But those, somebody sold down here cause they thought it was going lower. Oh man. It gave that opportunity for a lower entry for a long, okay. Now we're seeing here, especially where we're at in relationship to the having coming up and we have all this stuff on the horizon about the the IPO for ripple. And we have all these court cases winning into to your point earlier. I don't think they're going to win a hundred percent, but I think that's baked in. I think in the sense that at 99 .8 % or whatever, they're going to have to have some concession not to make Gary Gensler feel like he completely has, you know, a full face of egg on it. So there's going to be some sort of small fine paid or some concession that they have to make, but it's literally just going to be the fee of doing business. We see this also, it's not, it's not the end of the world. We look at you know, traditional banking, they've had $40 billion in fines since 2000 traditional banking. And yet there's, you know, they're able to continue doing business because it's the price of doing business. Now, are these levels that you're talking about? You said 65 cents. Yeah. 65 cents. And then a lot of resistance at 70 cents as well. 65 cents is right here. This previous range high that we broke through. I do think if we come back down, this is a great area. If we're very bullish, this is a great area for price to bounce on. It doesn't mean if we lose this, it's not bullish anymore. In fact, we can come all the way back down here to this horizontal line. That's in perfectly a basically cross section right here to that 60 cents level. This would be a great opportunity for another, you know, still bullish pullback if we come back to this level. Now, if it does continue to run, where is it going to go? Are you going to buy DZ? Are you going to buy on the way up if we get two candles in a row that are still bullish and we break 85 cents, is that a signal for you to buy and prices just running higher? You know, as much as I like candles, I don't like buying wicks. And so just I even when it hurts me, I just I'm averse against buying wicks. Yeah, no, I hear that. And so the point here is if things are running, that's a signal that there's a lot of stuff going on. Let the pullback let the chart come to you in your strategy so you can so you can make a smart buy. Now, let's go ahead, look at Bitcoin, Bitcoin and an interesting sort of channel that it's it's trading here. A lot of people are speculating. Is this going to be a setup for a sort of kind of flopsided bar pattern where the price action actually continues chopping in here only to break down and, you know, to this level? But why is that level important to previous high level that thirty two thousand dollars? Now, whether we continue higher or pullback down there now, at some point, I do think we're going to test below this range that we're in right now. Things are I mean, we see the momentum here is trending down while the price is still slightly turning higher. So there is some signs that we may be having some issue here coming up fairly shortly. I think C90 says the best. We're too far away from the having to not have at least one pullback. I don't know if it's going to start tomorrow. I don't know if it's going to start two months from now, but we're looking at an April twenty twenty four halving date. There's I'm assuming it's going to be much more likely than not in those six, five, six months. We'll experience a pullback now. Everybody want and I just did a video on this on the bit lab morning stream talking about the pump season. It's holidays. Everybody not only has a bias that they wanted to go up because you want to feel happy during the holidays, but there is data out there. There's data out there that shows that on average, November has a thirty seven percent pump to the upside. But that doesn't that doesn't mean every November is a thirty seven percent pump. There are some November's that have been negative. Basically, you've lost value in November. And we can see on this chart right here, this is seasonality. This is Q4. These these yellow bars, horizontal bars. This is Q4. And yes, we had a pump here. But look, we had a dump here, consolidation here, pump here, break down here. So you have to you have to take it into the context of where you're at in the market cycle compared to the halving. So as it stands right now, I do think we very well could get a pump. But look how far we still are from having to me if we do get that pump, I'm going to be looking for an opportunity coming into the halving for still some lower prices to whatever level we pump from pump two. So I would just urge caution. The higher we go, start looking for opportunities for prices on a pullback. All right. Let's say what is the coin you want to get more of during a pullback? I'm just going to say boring Bitcoin. I feel like I don't have enough Bitcoin. So if there is a pullback, I think I'm a scoop up some more bitty. What about you two? I'm going to be going after Cardano next. That's the next big bag. I have too much of it. What about you, Kelly? Well, I'm torn because I mean, look at pull up this chart real quick, because we see dominance is coming into a known zone. Not a carry off. Do you like Natalie and Bruglia? I'm told that's how I was trying to think of the song is that I'm still coming into this zone. Dominance is pulling back. We're seeing a little bit of capital rotate out of Bitcoin. And we also see the Ethereum dominance broke. Everybody wants to see this breaking, thinking every alts are just going to moon. But we still could very well have those alts pull back. So it's still a little bit. Everybody wants this to be an alt season because we're seeing some pretty big gains, you know, also because we're all overexposed in alts. That's why. Yeah. You know, one of those ones, everybody was kind of taking a little doodoo biscuits on was right here. Albert Rand. Everybody was saying they thought it was dead because they're also doing that rebrand. But look at this 45 percent pump. But it's pushing higher. But don't get lost in the bias just because you're feeling good in a green candle. Look for those pullbacks. If I had to pick one, it would be Bitcoin.

"Yeah, we did not because, you know, since they were part of, they were in probation and all that with the juveniles, and we didn't really have anything to do with them unless we were investigating them. And I was out of there pretty, you know, pretty shortly after that but never, you know, not able to track, you know, whether that was effective or not. Just don't know. But I do notice watching them. Let me ask you, after going through that, did you think about breaking the law after that? Nope. Nope. Nope. I'm good. Nope. You know, I thought back to all the things I did as a juvie, you know, that might have been, you know, and I'm like, yeah, I think I went the right, I think I went the right direction. Yeah. Well, so you said you did that, you hurried because you had to, you know, you had paperwork to do at Pittsburgh. So how long did it take you from the time you applied to the time you got on Pittsburgh PD? I would say it probably took probably close to about a year, almost like with DEA. DEA was very methodical, very slow and very good with the way that they hired you. But Pittsburgh Police, yeah, but when it happened, it happened in a whirlwind. I waited about a year. When I went to take the test at Pittsburgh, I drove all the way from over in western Ohio, so about a five hour drive, showed up at the convention center, you know, going back to when we're talking about how popular policing was, how difficult it was to break in. Went to go take the test. It was at the convention center, like a Van Halen concert in 1984. There must have been probably close to, I think they said 18 ,000 people for 200 jobs. So I mean, I took the test and didn't think anything was ever going to happen with that many. And being an out -of -towner, because, you know, there's a little bit of nepotism in some of those back east towns, but yeah, about a year. But boy, I'll tell you, you could tell they had a protocol in place to keep the out -of -towners out and to keep the, you know, the people who knew people inside or whatever, to keep Pittsburghers, Pittsburghers. The gal calls me from Pittsburgh out of the clear blue and she goes, you're considered for the job. You have two and a half days to move here. And I'm all the way over by the Michigan border, working over there. And I found out later on this gal had some issues with people like, anyway, yeah, so she had an issue with out -of -towners and some other things. She's been on the racist side. Let's go ahead and say it. This gal was very racist. But yeah, she said, you have two and a half days to get here and she says, this is what you have to have. Now I'm in Ohio. You have to have a driver's license, proof of residency, like a lease or whatever. You have to have a telephone, subscribe to your name and power. And you have two and a half days to do it. It's, I mean, but luckily for me, my secret weapon was my mom and dad lived within an hour of Pittsburgh. So I'm back that night. The next day we head up there and luckily mom and dad were Uber before Uber was cool. They drove me all around Pittsburgh. Thank God I passed the test on the first try and didn't screw up any of the questions and what have you. But I passed the driver's license test. So I got my PA driver's license, ended up finding an apartment, did everything in one day. Ended up having everything I needed in one day. And I totally baffled her. I could tell when I showed up at the public safety building with all my stuff, all my gear, you could tell she's very disappointed. Her name was Cookie. Anyway, yeah, I showed up and had it all. And so that's how it all went. And it kind of bolstered what I thought too when I went to the academy, because when you walk through the door of the Pittsburgh Police Academy, it's also very old. I mean, it smells like history when you walk in there. Old, old building. Walked in and there's this old disgruntled, this is my indoctrination into Pittsburgh Police. I walk into the building and you smell that history. I walk in and there's this old pissed off cop sitting there. And he's like one of those big city, old pissed off stereotype cops. He's got an unlit cigar chomped in his mouth and whatever. And I remember he was very voluminous, big guy, sitting there just angry looking. And he had the tea sitting at a table. There was a container over here with nightsticks and a smaller container on the table with blackjacks. And if you're not familiar with blackjacks for people out there, they were an impact weapon that was your backup if you couldn't use your full size nightstick or once they went to Asps, the expandable batons. But a blackjack was basically a leather wrapped, about a foot long. It had a steel spring in the middle wrapped in leather. It had a handle. It had a lead ball also wrapped in leather on the end. It's kind of sproingy. You could kind of give it some spring. It was meant for close quarters stuff. But yeah, it was like a 1900 Keystone cops blackjack nightstick and this pissed off old cop sitting there. And he says, name, sign here, get downstairs and get your uniform. And like I said, there was no friendliness. So I go down, I get into the locker room and the first thing somebody said, and this is the first thing in Pittsburgh that anybody said to me from the PD, I get down there and one of the other new recruits looks over at me and he goes, so who do you know? And I'm like, I don't know. I'm just that token out of town kid and whatever. But I mean, that was really not a big deal. The rest of it wasn't nepotism or anything. That was the first thing it said. But you could see a degree of people that were there that had been, you know, that were like legacies or they had known somebody. But for the most part, it was a bunch of good guys and gals. And that carried on all through Pittsburgh. You know, I think a lot of the times for us, you know, we're our own best critics when it comes to not wanting a dirty cop, not wanting a bad cop. Not even somebody that, you know, is even halfway, like doesn't treat people the right way and whatever. I mean, so I mean, most of us are our own best critics. And I can honestly say, like with Pittsburgh Police, I work the second worst part of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh's north side. It's called Zone 1. But all through my career in Pittsburgh, I met like maybe, maybe two or three guys that I'm like, oh, boy, I wouldn't want to work with that fellow. But that's out of hundreds of people. And we'd jump zones and go over to their zones and help them out. It would work special details like events and work with detectives. But yeah, my experience for the rest of the time with Pittsburgh was very, very good. It was truly a family. One of the biggest problems we had when you'd have a serious call where you had to call back up, like you had a gunfight going on or you had like a really serious foot chase. One of the biggest problems was trying to sort out who all had showed up at your scene when you write your report. Because, you know, Pittsburgh had a whole bunch of agencies going on that were kind of like on top of each other. And even though Pittsburgh police was the clearinghouse for like a robbery or a shooting or what have you, you know, we had Allegheny County police, Port Authority police, sheriff, school, and they could come back you up if necessary. And so it just looked like a carnival if you had like a really serious call. And so my experience was, though, that the people we worked with were unbelievable. Never, never had a bad experience in the field. Very lucky. Well, yeah, you had a bad experience in the field, weren't you? Didn't you tell us something about two weeks after you got released? You're out on your own. Didn't something happen? So I guess we'll tell a couple of these. For the first two weeks in Pittsburgh when you get out, they didn't have a field training officer program. What I tell people that even 15 years ago, 20 years ago, I tell people, yeah, Pittsburgh didn't have a field training officer program. You'd graduate after your six -month academy and they're like, here's your badge, kid, go out and be good. And that was the way they did it. Wow. So you had no FTO. You got a badge and a gun, go get them, Tiger. But what they did do for your first two weeks is, for familiarization, they would put you in all the different, they don't call them precincts in Pittsburgh, they're called zones, but they would put you in a different zone in Pittsburgh for like a three -day period. And that way, during the two weeks, you could experience every one of those zones, know where their stations are, if there's a court, whatever you need to know about. And you'd also do patrol work with another officer. Yeah, so my first week on the job, so many things happened in one and a half weeks that kind of like shows you the quantity over quality when it comes to, you know, street law enforcement in a big city. But I remember my very first call for service, I was in Zone 2, which is our downtown area. That's the big sprawling downtown and then the Hill District. And my first partner, he was an older guy, a little bit gruff and what have you. You could tell he's kind of like, he's not real happy being saddled up, you know, with the rookie, but that's what he had to do. And it was nine o 'clock in the morning and they get a call of an unknown disturbance from Point State Park. Point State Park is where, if you look at Pittsburgh proper, you have two rivers called Monongahela and the Allegheny River. They flow together and form the Ohio River. Well, right there where that point is, they have a really, really nice park right there. It's huge, absolutely huge. But nothing ever happens there usually because you can't escape. It'd be like Snake Pliskin trying to get out of New York or whatever, you can't get out of there. So it's unusual to have that call. So we get down there, we just drive right through the park in the patrol car, right down through the green lines, we get down to where the problem was, was a park bench. And there were several business people, a couple ladies, a couple guys, dressed very nice, and they're kind of standing back just like watching this poor thing unfold. It looked like it was a homeless guy. He had that Obi -Wan Kenobi homeless look to him with all the multiple layers of clothes where you can't really tell what's going on. And so he's laying on the, I don't know if it was a he, but we found out later on, the hard way. We found out the hard way. Yeah. So he's laying on the park bench and he's kind of like in the fetal position, but you can't see anything but like that Obi -Wan Kenobi rap going on. Nothing. Can't see hands, but he's in, it looks like to me as a young, brand new, fresh out of the box, fresh -faced kid, I'm thinking this guy is going into convulsions. And he's making the sound that's like, grrr, grrr, grrr, grrr. I mean, he's making these like animalistic sounds. He's in convulsions. And so I'm just kind of like, huh. And this cop, without skipping a beat that I'm with, old timer guy, he gets out his big old Micarta nightstick. He goes over in front of all these business people, takes it and just jams it right into the area that's probably going to be this guy's sternum or ribs or stomach or whatever. And just, he doesn't hit him with it. He just sticks it in there to give him a little, you know, hey, pride. He sticks it. Well, the guy never misses a beat. He stops. Well, he does. He stops for like maybe a second. Like he stops the convulsing and the gurgling sounds. And then he goes right back at it again into the convulsions. And I'm like, oh man, it's like our first day and this is going on. And these business people are like all shocked. They're like, oh my God, because of the nightstick. And the cop, my cop, he goes dirt and jams the guy again. He goes, hey, I said, get the F out of here right now. And the guy stops making the gurgling sounds and then sits up. And now you can see it's a dude. He's dirty. His face is really, really dirty. And robes his and whatever he had going on comes open. And there's no easy way to put this. I'm going to make the sound effect. If you heard that sound effect, that's what fell out of his robes. He had this thing that looked, it didn't look right. You know, when you see something that doesn't make sense to you, and just for like maybe a two second period, your head is trying to figure this, like, what am I looking at? I don't even know what I'm looking at, but you know what you're looking at. This guy had a monstrous monster dog. Yeah, he had a monstrous dog. And he had been performing fellatio on himself. And I'll be honest with you guys. I'll be honest with you guys. You know, I've told this story ever since from Pittsburgh on, like when you're sitting in a surveillance van, you're like, what's the weirdest thing you ever saw? Or like, what's the most thing that ever made you the most jealous? Anything like that. But yeah, so we're, I saw, but before we did our podcast today, yesterday, I just wanted to see, I want to make sure that I haven't misremembered this story. So I went online and I typed in, I typed it in. I hope my, yeah, don't look at my browser for this one. I typed in, can a man perform fellatio on himself? And you know what? I was totally justified in whatever, in telling the story the way it is, because according to Men's Health, and hey, you know, Men's Health says that it can't be wrong, 0 .2 % of the male population in America can actually do that to themselves. So you don't have to break a rib, I guess. You don't have to do anything weird. You're like a fetishist type thing. But anyway, so that guy sits up. I know it makes a lot of mental, you can't help, but just get the mental images. I'm sorry, but if you do that, are you automatically gay then? I mean, how does that work? I don't, you know what? I'm not here to judge. I'm not here to judge. All I can tell you is, I guess I, you know, if I had to, I'd have to say, I would probably be homeless too. You know, if I had that going on, I might be homeless, or at least never leaving my house. I don't know. But yeah, so that comes out and flops down and what have you. And the business people, and not just the men, I mean, not just the women, the men too, it was like, you know those 1950s movie screams? Yeah. Like the over -the -top, like from all the old horror movies, like, ah! That's what universally happened to that small little crowd of business people. They were nowhere to be seen in about 25 seconds. They were gone and whatever. And you know, the guy, the park bench guy, he reels it in, or I'm not sure how that spools it up. I'm not sure what he did. If he had a holster, I'm not sure what he did. But anyway, yeah, so he gets it back in there somehow and gets himself bundled back up, and he just goes trudging off. And he never did say one word that you could understand. It was all just like, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I mean, just total nonsensical gibberish. And he just kind of wandered off into the sunset. I guess that's what heroes do. Ah, jeez. Yeah, he wandered off into the sunset. And I'm thinking to myself, huh, I went through five years of college and 70 years of military, and here we are. It's great. It was absolutely great. I would not trade my time with the things we saw in this world.
"less than two weeks" Discussed on Northwest Newsradio
"Of the House, Kevin McCarthy. So what is the new guy going to try? Theo Meyer is watching it for the Washington Post, and he spoke with Northwest News Radio's Taylor Van Science CEO, though Speaker Mike Johnson, as you put it, is running headfirst into the challenges of governing in a slim majority. What's his strategy here to try and keep the lights on? So the strategy is really unclear at the moment. As you mentioned, government funding runs out in less than two weeks. Speaker McCarthy had brought a deal back in September, at the end of September, to avert a government shutdown by their hours then, but that only provided about 45 more days of government funding, and it's once again running out. It will run out at midnight on November 17th. That is when November 17th turns into November 18th. And Johnson has not articulated a clear plan yet on how he wants to move forward. The idea is that he would pursue a continuing to resolution provide some more funding for a set period of time. That's what Kevin McCarthy did back at the end of September. But it's unclear whether spending cuts or conditions other would try to be attached to that, or if he would move what's known as a clean PCR, which is essentially just funding the government at previous levels and just keeping it going for a set period of time. And additionally, you report that House Republicans have 12 individual spending bills. What do all those cover and what are their chances of being passed? So the way you're to supposed fund the government in theory is to pass these individual spending bills by the end of the fiscal year. By September 30th, the Senate passes their versions and then you reconcile them and then the government is funded. This is not generally how it works anymore, but it is the sort of theoretical good government idea of how it should be done. So House Republicans had been trying and struggling pass to those. Obviously, the fiscal year came and went without them having passed them, but they have finally moved seven of them and moving the rest of them was one of Johnson's key promises when he was running for speaker. He laid out a very ambitious schedule of trying to move the rest of them over the line. But he's running into trouble now because the appropriations bills that Republicans haven't passed. The ones they've saved to the end are some of the toughest to pass because of the cuts included in them. I'm interested to get your take on this because in my mind, he must still have some congratulations balloons that still have helium in them. Speaker Johnson is so new here. Is he going to get a little grace as the new guy on the job from what you're hearing? I think he's certainly giving some he has, you know, can perhaps do some of the same things that Speaker McCarthy did without getting the same blow back. And certainly I would think there is a very low risk in the short term that he would be forced out office of in the way that McCarthy was after the excruciating scenario of watching Republicans trying to elect a new speaker for weeks. But he has some choices to make about how he's going to govern. And one of those choices is whether he will pursue a strategy that would Would avert a government shutdown in a couple of weeks by passing clean, relatively uncomplicated have created legislation to just keep the government open until perhaps mid January, or is he going to try to demand some spending cuts as some of the more hardline conservatives in his conference would like to see him demand and perhaps force a that fight.

"Morning, an American Airlines pilot has filed a lawsuit against Spokane International Airport and three TSA officers who detained him for refusing to wear a mask through a security checkpoint. We get details from Northwest News Radio's Carlene Johnson before December 2021. Bahig Saliba said he had no problems passing through airport security checkpoints nationwide without a mask. Once he explained he was medically exempt from wearing one, at but the Spokane Airport December 6, 2021, the claim alleges a TSA manager brought three more airport security officers over and loudly told him he had to put the mask on, detaining him for 15 minutes and telling him they would report him to American Airlines. The suit claims TSA racially profiled him as Middle Eastern. Even though he is Middle Eastern, he says the fact airport staff put that in their report amounts to profiling. After Saliba's flight to Dallas, American Airlines placed him on unpaid leave. He's seeking more than half a million dollars in lost compensation and 23 million dollars and punitive damages for pain and suffering and violations of constitutional rights. According to McClatchy News, Spokane Airport Airport officials say they have not seen the claim. As a nonprofit group called The More We Love works to help people move out out of an encampment in Burien, Como Forest and East Whitaker reports many are left wondering why the city won't or can't help. The city's considered many options including a one million dollar offer from King County but so far they've failed to act on any one solution. I have not been authorized to negotiate. I've been authorized to find locations and bring back to council. I have not been authorized to negotiate. Monday night's council meeting included plenty of finger pointing from those in power and also the people of Burien who took a stand that they action. want Our city manager said he could not negotiate and if that's a law or a policy that needs to be changed now. Who's in charge? Who's the primary target person for leading the city's efforts to address the issues of homelessness and I really didn't get an answer. In Burien, Denise Whitaker, Como News. In less than two weeks, three children have died of suspected fentanyl overdoses, two of which were on the same day in Kent. We get more from Como4's Lynn Ann Wynn. Tolana Jonas saw Kent police and fire outside the atrium on James Apartments last week where a girl lost her life. The same day, first responders also found a nine year old boy unresponsive at a home on the 22 ,900 block of Military Road South. Police say despite life saving efforts, both were declared dead on the scene. Preliminary reports from the King County Medical Examiner indicate the deaths were accidental and possible overdoses. fentanyl Meth is also listed on the report for the 15 year old's death. And just about two weeks ago on July 24th, a 16 year old girl was also found dead from a suspected fentanyl overdose at an apartment on the 800 block of Northeast 106th Street in Seattle. Lynn Ann Wynn, KOMO News. City leaders in Seattle approved have the expansion of a mobile drug treatment program to help addicts on the street. KOMO4's Joel Moreno reports from Pioneer reached the near square where one of those mobile units is located. fentanyl use really opioids in general are rampant in this area. And the idea behind this effort is to have a clinic on wheels to show up and help drug users basically break their dependence on these hardcore narcotics. There's a lot and it's just getting worse and worse the overdoses and fentanyl is like becoming an increasingly big evergreen treatment services is trying to stop that cycle with a new focus on Pioneer Square. The City Council has a million dollars to expand the treatment in motion program. The mobile medication unit currently treats about 50 people every day but as many as 120 people will be helped by the expansion into Pioneer Square. The infusion of cash from City Council will also pay for a second vehicle to be stationed in additional neighborhoods. Joe Moreno, KOMO News. It's 5 10.

"less than two weeks" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"The equity side of the biz for Bloomberg News, both of them joining us here in our Bloomberg Interactive broker studio. Katie, what are you looking at? Well, looks like we're actually seeing a little bit of a bid come into the S &P 500 just in the past hour or so. Currently up Up about four tenths of a percent. We had started the day lower, actually. We got some mixed economic data, but of course we got those stronger than expected ADP numbers ahead of tomorrow's non -farm payroll report. In terms of what's driving this latest leg higher, it looks like it's big tech sort of rebounding a little bit here. You also have energy having a bit of a good day that's after up about nine tenths of a percent, but still this feels like, I don't know, just maybe you disagree. Sort of wait and see market. Of course, all eyes on the Fed in less than two weeks' time, or not quite quite less than two weeks' time. Right! Getting ahead of myself. Basically, we rounded to about two weeks, so the meeting's on June 13th and 14th, so the 14th would be the decision, and the 13th is also and we'll get another update on CPI. What is June 14th, though? Is it your birthday? No. that. Happy birthday, Paul! No, it's flag day. I love that! The only thing more exciting than Paul Sweeney's birthday. I will do that. Okay, very good. Something else I'm watching... These people are listeners. I have three extraordinarily well -educated people in this studio here, much better than I, and they didn't know it was flag day. Did not know about flag day. We gotta step it up, ladies. I know, what are we doing here? Alright, what else is going on out there? So we're gonna have some announcements on potential rebalancing changes soon, when it comes to the indexes. So I'm throwing forward it a little bit, but this was something that struck me with a note from JP Morgan this morning. So Min Moon, who's a at strategist the firm, he's actually expecting, when you're looking at the NASDAQ 100 specifically, that Rivian would potentially be deleted and the addition could be on semiconductor. So Rivian, obviously, ticker symbol RIVN. We know about the pressure that this stock has has been under, I mean, if you look year to date, that's stocked down more than 20%, and if you look over the past in the last 12 months, over 50 % decline there. If you're looking at its market cap, around 14 billion. But that is something that could potentially happen there. So what happens with these, it comes down to the waitings as far as what this potentially could mean. So when you're looking at the NASDAQ basically removes the smallest index members of the NASDAQ 100, if the company is weighted less than one tenth of percent of the index for two consecutive months. So if you look at Rivian specifically, this was below that threshold as the of end of April and then also through the end of May. So that's why Min Moon at JP Morgan is thinking that Rivian would be potentially removed on Friday, then that would basically coincide with the June So rebalance. that would be confirmed at the close of June 9th. So that's a potential move there, talking about index changes. Right. Did we have a retailer's report today, Maddie? We did. We got Macy's this morning. And it was not good. It was ugly. I think I'm going to go ahead and say it. Of course it down all came to the guidance as it always does in earnings. You can see Macy's shares right now, they're off about 2 % or so. was That 5 % earlier in the session. But they basically said that starting in late March, they started to see demand trends really weaken in their discretionary categories. They adjusted their full year EPS. It's now between $2 .70 to $3 .20. The previous range had been between $3 .67 to $4 .11. So a big cut there. It also lowered its sales guidance. It said it's going to need to take more markdowns to deal with its excess spring inventory. It's like the ghost that never goes away for some of these retailers. Still a problem for Macy's. Really interesting comments on demand, though. They were supposed to be good on inventory. You can see that disappointment in the shares. It's interesting to pair that with what we heard from Nordstrom. The shares of Nordstrom have come back a little bit. They're only up about what less than 1 % that had been at almost 3 % earlier, but Nordstrom came out and said, look, we're encouraged by our momentum, especially given the economic uncertain macro environment. They had better than expected quarterly results. wasn't The guidance too bad. These retailers have really struggled to find one cohesive message. I feel like today's results between Nordstrom and Macy's just furthered that. One that surprised me retail on the side was Dollar General. I thought, on the lower end of retail, that would, on a relative basis, if people are hurting, you know, hurting by inflation impacting their pocketbook and so on, that maybe they would trade down where they shop and that might benefit the dollar stores. But Stocks off 20 % today. It is. So that would be its worst percentage decline on record if it closed still these at thresholds. And those dollar stores in particular had been holding up well in recent quarters despite the pain that we had seen, especially when you think back to last summer. That was when we saw Walmart and Target begin to cut some of those thresholds there. But then when we saw more toward those bigger retailers, they held up a bit better. But starting now you're to see that pressure when it comes to the more discount type retailers. So a little bit of a divergence there when you're looking at the who's who there in the retail space. Yeah, and it's interesting to look at because you were mentioning Walmart, Jess, and I was talking to an analyst this week who said that Walmart is struggling with the dry food costs continuing specifically to be at those high highs. And you look at a Dollar General, they don't have any type of food necessarily to kind of fall back on when it comes to those costs. I want to back go to you on Nordstrom because Nordstrom Rack was kind of the saving grace for them, right? And it sounds like I'm curious about that being good for them when Macy's struggled with their lower and middle income consumers. Yeah, that was really interesting. I think Macy's said that 50 % of their customers earn below $75 ,000 per year. I hope I'm remembering that correctly. But yeah, to your point, I mean Nordstrom, that off -price rack business was the saving grace. You had analysts optimistic about improvements to come to in that business. But overall, I mean you had Citi coming out and saying that the company's delivery overall has been inconsistent. You had UBS questioning really its ability to meet the sales projections that it laid out. So I mean even with the rack business, there's still questions about Nordstrom. Yeah. Are any of you guys like would you characterize yourselves as shoppers? Oh my god, yes. I don't think I am. I don't know. Jess? Don't think I am. Shoppers as in going in physically to the store? Swiping. I think it depends. I feel like I've done it more ever since things have improved from the pandemic because we were stuck at home. I was always ordering things online and so there's certain items where I'm like this could be fun and then other ones I may not want to... So you go Madison, you go like shop. Oh I'm adding to the US GDP. I am the feds worst nightmare. Holding up this economy. Yeah I really am. you. Thank So are you sensing, are you noticing any, I don't know, are they more being aggressive on markdowns or is the inventory there that you want, that kind of thing? That's a really good question. I feel like the markdowns have been great especially at a TJ Maxx which I tend to frequent. So that's been that's been good for me. But I feel like we're going to continue to get more markdowns which I'm very excited about. I'm waiting for markdowns in the housing market. One of those. Yes. Alright guys thank you very much Jess, Matt and Katie Greifield. They cover all the markets for us for Bloomberg News. Joining us here in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studio. Well at 10 a .m. Wall Street time today we had some ISM data come out on the manufacturing and showing some there weakness particularly in the new orders and I want to get to the bottom of that. Tim Fiore can help us do that. Tim Fiore is the chairman of the Institute for Supply Management. So Tim ISM manufacturing data what are your takeaways today? Interesting report so you know first off the revenue reported by the manufacturing panel was really on that? That's really good. That says month to long for still billing out at the same level we were billing out of April and the prior months was so pretty good to do export orders were pretty stable very positive headcount is generally stable that could be positive or negative input material flow is best in years and probably most importantly prices are declining and lead times are dropping too so you know everything

"Talk about the the things you're most looking forward to a training camp, which is less than two weeks away for The Denver Broncos. We always see no, the quarterback battle is a big deal, you pointed out. The other big deal was you want to know who is going to be playing the center position? And you just explained all the reasons why Mix in what cushion Berry was doing at center with being late and sometimes wrong about the protection call. Drew luck has to also improve on what he is reading, uh from the defense what they're showing him and we know that that's one of the things Peyton Manning worked with him on during the off season. Okay, So this is, uh, this is This is, uh, let me start off by telling you a story. Okay? Let me tell you a story. Okay, so this one is story. Big out, my man, my man, right? So This is probably the greatest story that you'll ever hear about a quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Year to plan and Andy Reid's offense, which is the first year he's actually Uh, this is the first year that he's actually really played. He goes out and throws. I think he threw for 50 touchdowns that year, Right? Some something like that. He was the league's It was ridiculous. It was he was a league M v P He did an interview. He did an interview that talked about His inability to read defense. Okay, so basically What the coach called. He ran. If it was open, he threw it. If it wasn't open, he improvised and made plays down the field with his legs or with his arm. Patrick Mahomes. Okay? League MVP in the league MVP season that he had could not read defenses. He's come out and said as much like I couldn't read defenses until year number four. I think last year was the first year where he could read defenses. I want you to think about that. Guy wins the league. M V P. He, uh, wins the Super Bowl? No, I don't think he wanted the Super Bowl that year. Then you may be right. He won this. No, No. He wanted the Super Bowl the following year, right, But he's still But the fight wasn't until the following year after that, the following getting on the following year. It was year three so year three in the middle of year three. He learned to read defenses and he said. The game became really easy form, Okay, because he learned to read defenses in year three after playing all those snaps. This is after he's the league's MVP. I need you to understand this. Okay? So this guy Andy Reid dialed up so many good place for, um for Patrick Mahomes. That he didn't need Do very much except throw the ball where the offence told him to go to ball. And if it wasn't there, pull it down and do something spectacular with your legs. Okay? Take drew lock. And put them in the exact same situation. And it's a disaster. You know why his place take longer to develop? His place in this offense take much longer time to develop and when he's moving around, he doesn't do the same things that Patrick Mahomes does to get his guys the ball. Both of them have a problem reading defenses. Okay. Patrick Mahomes fix this problem because of the repetition. You get better, right? We all know that through the various works that we've been in Repetition you get better. Bollocks probably will figure it out at some point during this year. How to read defenses, and it's something that you do on the move because, you know, I used to joke about Tim Tebow playing quarterback. And how Tim Tebow would play quarterback and he would throw the ball so he would Tim Tebow would after practice, go back and throw Like 100 balls who are two to the right side of the field. Okay, 100, Miles to the right side of the field, 100 balls to the center field, 100 miles to the left side of the field. You know what he didn't do? He didn't throw the people who were moving. You know, so you maybe pinpoint accurate throwing that ball for to a target that standing steel, But if the guy's not moving, what good is it to you at quarterback? Everybody is moving right on the football field. So all you're doing is wasting the receivers time. You have to throw to moving targets. And that's what happens over a lot of time you get used to moving targets and holes in defences. And I think at some point if July is the quarterback here this year, I think in the second year of this defense he'll learn to read if he's given the offense. Because I don't know if he's going to earn the position outright. I think he has to be given this position because Teddy is a natural leader, and he's going to know every in and out of this defense. And that's a guy that can read defense. I just threw up in my mouth. Just a little. I'm just telling you he can reach through. I'm telling you, Jo Jo the reason the reason that drew lock has had such a horrible time..

But here in Ontario, we're under a stay at home order. And how that differs from a curfew. I guess it's kind of subtle, but it's It's somewhat voluntary, except you know, by law officials are empowered to charge you, but there's a lot of gray area you're you're supposed to stay at home. Unless you need to go for groceries. You can go to the drugstore. You can walk your dog. You can go. Go for a walk and get some exercise. But you can't of course, gathering other people's homes and so forth. But Where it breaks down for me, and you cited some of the inconsistencies before we went into the stay at home order. We were in a week. We call a gray zone here where I'm living. And so at one point, my twin boys were enrolled in tennis lessons inside a bubble. Which they could do. They had to wear a mask from the parking lot into the bubble, then take the mask off and actually play tennis. Then, when we went into the gray zone, they had to cancel the lessons. But they could enroll in tennis camp, which still took place inside a bubble with the same amount of students except I mean, the only thing that was different Don was they called it a camp instead of a lesson on. That's just one example. I'm sure people could cite hundreds of little silly rules that make no sense. And yet, we just as you say we go along with it. Yeah, it's just amazing.

And I wanted to let you hear some of that right now so we can discuss what what This all means. Go for it. I would like to begin by addressing the heinous attack on the United States Capitol Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem. I immediately deploy the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders. America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the capital have defiled the seat of American democracy. To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction. You do not represent our country and to those who broke the law you will pay. We have just been through an intense election and emotions are high, but now tempers must be cooled. And calm restored. We must get on with the business of America. My campaign vigorously pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote and so doing. I was fighting to defend American democracy. I continue to strongly believe that we must reform our election laws. To verify the identity and eligibility of all voters and to ensure faith and confidence in all future elections. We do need to make sure that future elections don't have some of the questions.

And we have to prepare for What is coming? I'm gonna do all of that with you today. But first I want to say that there is and I will not let this go. Tremendous amount of hypocrisy from the media about what they saw on Capitol Hill and what they Generally excuse or explain away or even encouraged, depending on who we're talking about. And what specific right? All riots are bad. We should be able to agree on this right left right, everybody. She will agree all riots or bad You don't start. Breaking things, attacking people trespassing, threatening and and even assaulting law enforcement. Look, a Capitol Hill police officers dead they believe, because he was hit over the head with a fire extinguisher. That's murder. A woman went to this protest and she was shot in the neck and what looks like it looks like to me excessive force, which would make that an illegal shooting, Not quite murder, but perhaps Criminal charge. We shall see. But the Capitol Hill police officer who died was doing his job. He was doing his job. We back to blue or not. We do. Let's not forget that We condemn riots or not, we do. I'm telling you any anybody right now? Who wants to get mad at me about this one? Or wants to pick a fight over this? I welcome it. Let's all remember who we are. Let's remember what we stand for here. Trump is done. He's not going to be president for the next four years. They were very real questions now about what the future of President Trump personally in politics will be. I think his statement last night was excellent. I think that he is representative of a broader movement. Of conservative populism, but We have to see where this all goes the next two weeks. Need to be Hey. Quieter process. A peaceful process, as he has called for. But we also need to deal with this reality. I know it's uncomfortable. People have been lied to here. They have been misled.

Who were running around saying things just wait. Just wait. We're gonna have the evidence we're going to give it to you. I'm telling and they were telling me this on a personal level. They were telling me this off the record behind closed doors. What do they have? Where is it? Nothing. Didn't change a darn thing. Now the left is Maura embolden than it's ever been.

Getting ready for the fight that lays ahead because We're coming to grips with this one right now. And and part of that means looking at everything. Honestly, now with clear eyes look at what has actually happened. Capitol Hill Police officer is dead. A woman of a mother of a veteran is dead. A number of other people from injuries that I can't get specifics about how, but they're being Placed as they're being reported on as injuries related to our deaths related to this protest. There are a handful of other people as well, but certainly the Capitol police officer And actually, Babbitt, the woman who was shot the neck. They're dead. And this this whole unleashing of fury and rage in the capital. Aside, I said immediately, and many people are mad at all. I know I'm like all these others, thousands and thousands of unfollowed on Twitter and everything else. Always going to tell you the truth that this is not a close call. This is not a hard one. This was a massive blunder. And we need to rally back from this. Come together. This was it was wrong, and it was dumb. And that's what we need to understand right now.
