A highlight from Final de Glatas
"Saludos a todos aquellos que nos decuchas en dicias y para nosotros es un placer que ustede tenco nosotros una ver a mas y como siempre nuestra querida Lulu, Hano, David, y nuestra querido Andres con nosotros y nuestra una de nuestra productoras ejecudiba So today we're going to be talking about the book Galatas and what we're thinking about the discussions we're going to have during the past two episodes. Y estas por escuchar en podcasto. Dicias y. Comenzamos. Cambió su imagen de Pablo. O tal vez, no se sí, hacer la preguntos. O hacerme la preguntamí mal bien. Yo soy el que estado más anti -Paulino de diaze tiempo. Esta... No se. Te gusto. Te gusto Pablo en este acarta. No se. No se. Yo saba legendo. Bueno, estaba escuchando un podcaste de Bart Ehrman. Y el estaba hablando de como. El formato que utilizaba Pablo y estas cosas era. De ira muchas iglesias. De abrir las, de formar las, dejar al grupo que se encargaba o la casa. Y después, se suponía que les escribía cartas relatimamente, comodo de veces al año. Cartas bien bien serías y después cartas pequeñitas. Entonces esta funcion de Pablo estar escribiendo un montón de cartas. Er algo muy normal. Y solo tenemos siete verdad. Cuando devieron haber existido sientos, desiento, desientos. Entonces, esta muy triste pensar que todas esta tíología se aformado solamente de esta siete que tenemos. Que se logran ya entre los profesionales y academico desir que esta siete síson realmente del. Y no se es complejo pensar que tenemos una tampokito de la visión de Pablo. Y ha una sí esto fe sufiente para construir todo el cristianidmo que tenemos ahora. a Entonces, un que en esta carta, un que gala, tas puedo un pablo más universalista, más pensando en la gente, tratando de salir de todas las cosas que yo detesto de las traditionales, de estas cosas que a carriaban por años, de las circumstances que la carne, a una siento que me frustra saber que con esto se construyó todo lo que conocenos en este momento. Y no puedo no ver los huecos o lo diferente que ver a puedo habercido, si veramos puedo habener más cosas. Y no solo de Pablo, verdad un muchísimas personas que escribián. Entonces, no se yo estado pensando para el final dese episodio, tengo una semana pensando que puedo decir, porque no se si cambió algo, no se si me diosperanza, no se si me ayudo a mi personalmente. No se que piensa en los tres. I think that I think that if we were to have a much more material in the way we base our children, there is no sufficient way. There is always a good way and I think that they are super good at the good way. Y estado crito, estado dito y no hay paseo para que dios y gaba hablando moviendo, se doe es arroyando la idea y la volucion del pensamiento, y se han un cueramos volucionado tambuoco. Como crencia, no? Como y delugia. Si y con la liberta que tenemos arrita. Y hací y pele ang y no se ponen da cual, imáginen se situdieran dos 40 caltas adicionales, que erán, que lo que habese no entenemos, erán caltas que se cribián es precipicamente para tradal una situación en ese iglesia local. Y queremos hacer la deología universal cuando aycosa inclusiva, que dentro de la míma iglesia pablo cambiado opinion, porque en la primera calta por ejemplo a lo corintio, el hablo una cosa y en la segunda para que dicen que no en la segunda, que hablo mejor vera la tercero la cualta cambiado opinion, y dice mira yo en el anterio el diegerto, pero a lo mejor fum pogo muy severo, que tal sí hacemos estí. Se giobedona. Ahora, no de me quedé. Se que he doas y. Pero que en folto el último que diego.
A highlight from Cathie Wood on Investing Lessons, Spot Bitcoin ETFs, $1 Million Bitcoin and What Drives Her
"It is the first global private, meaning no government intervention, rules based monetary system that the world has ever known. Welcome to the Coin Stories podcast, where we get to explore the future of money, business, technology and Bitcoin's revolutionary promise to boost economic prosperity around the world and mend our broken financial system. I'm Natalie Brunell, and I'm here to learn with you. This podcast is for educational and entertainment purposes only. None of the discussions should constitute as official investment advice, and you should always do your own research. This podcast is made possible through partnerships with companies I trust, and I'm very picky about who I choose to partner with, so I hope you take the time to listen to the ad reads throughout the show. Thanks for joining me, and if you like this type of content and want to see more of it, make sure to hit that like button. All right, it's time for the show. Welcome back to Coin Stories. I am really honored for this guest, one of my most requested, the CEO and founder of ARK Invest, Cathie Wood. Cathie, thank you so much for sharing some of your valuable time with me. Oh, I'm delighted. And you can thank Yassine El -Mandra and David Puel, who are in who Yassine leads our crypto effort. David is our on -chain analyst, and they have been singing your praises. So I'm delighted to meet you, Natalie. Well, I'm so grateful. I just love meeting such prominent names in the space who are carrying the Bitcoin message forward. So let's kind of start the story, though, at the beginning. I heard a little bit of your origin story on Peter McCormick's show, and I know that you spent your young life, you've lived part of the time in the UK and Ireland. But can you share a little bit more color? I mean, what was your upbringing like and maybe were you always interested in working in the business world? My upbringing, I love the fact that I moved around, probably moved, I think it was 10 times by the time I was 13, 12, something like that. And then we settled down. So, you know, I got exposed to lots of different cultures, lots of different people. And think I it was a very important part of my growing up, you know, moving into situations, you know, do I trust the situation, you know, sizing up the situation quickly. So and, you know, as as now I'm a portfolio manager, I have to do that with companies all the time. Right. So I think that that was very helpful. My father inspired me. He was a design engineer. You know, he really didn't have the education you would expect of a design engineer, but innovation levels the playing field. He became obsessed with radar systems and he became one of the world's experts. So he was a big inspiration. Someone asked me once, you know, who inspired you from a finance, taught you about money and finances. And until I got that question, I didn't realize how important a role my mother also played. So my father, you know, went to work, worked really hard. And my mother was a stay at home mom, which is what they both wanted. And and she handled all the finances. And so I learned how to budget very, very, very early. So, wow, I mean, that's incredible. I was actually going to ask you what what was your relationship with money when you were young? Because sometimes the people I've met in this space, they face some sort of hardship that that created a pain point where maybe they appreciated Bitcoin a little bit more. So so what was your relationship with money? Were you always a really big saver? And clearly you were always interested in technology and innovation. I absolutely was a big saver. I was almost scared to spend money because, you know, the money was hard to come by. And so I, I, I was a babysitter starting at age 11. I was helped by my mom, of course. And then McDonald's supermarket, a restaurant. And then I finally, I finally, thanks to Professor Arthur Laffer, Art Laffer, I don't know if you know who he is, Natalie, big, big influence in my life, introduced me to Capital Group on the West Coast. And Capital Group is one of the premier research and investment houses in the world. And at that time, so this was in 1977. I was in college and Capital was really the first investment firm to think outside the United States and which I loved. I love that idea and wanted to be a part of that. So, yeah, I guess in terms of how, why my my strong feelings about Bitcoin. Well, I'm actually I've always loved monetary policy and watched it very carefully. I went through the late 70s inflation and interest rates going up in the United States and this massive inflation by our standards. And definitely that influenced me, like, wow, this really was at least 15 to 16 years of human error. And then we had, thank goodness, Chairman Volcker coming in, you know, right at the ship, which was great. But then I've lived, you know, watched one crises after another throughout the world. And they're usually debt related and everybody seems surprised at the time. But they're they're much easier to see, I think, if if if one has an economics background and and just to bring that to the current day. And, you know, seeing and David and the entire team at at ARK will tell you, I am extremely focused on what's happening to the dollar versus other currencies right now tells me there's a dollar liquidity crisis brewing. And here again, emerging market and other currencies are going down relative to the dollar. And that we're starting to see the gold price crack. We're seeing other commodity prices, ex oil and some food prices. So here we are again, you know, this is going to cause a world of hurt. And and so I've been looking I immediately understood what Bitcoin was. And one one of the reasons I did is we did a paper on Bitcoin in 2015 and we and Art Laffer was willing to collaborate with us. He had been asked many times to collaborate on other papers having to do with digital money or or I guess it's digital cash, never, never accepted those opportunities. He read our paper and really tore it apart from in a good way from an economics point of view. And he said, I've been waiting for this since we closed the gold exchange standard. You know, this is a rules based global monetary system and this is what we need. Now, at the time, he said, you know, I love that it's rules based, he said. But if you want Bitcoin to serve as a means of exchange, the rule has to change. It has to become a price rule. So keep the price stable and vary the quantity. And of course, that's not going to happen. But even his thinking has evolved in that regard. We did a podcast. We've done a few podcasts with him on Bitcoin. We did one with Ophelia at 21 shares, who is our partner in applying for a Bitcoin ETF and Art Laffer. And, you know, he's peeling the onion a little bit more, trying to get at the essence here. Can I really trust this? And we're going to also do a Bitcoin brainstorm with Art, more of a layman, but a real monetary scholar, kind of poking holes. He also understands cryptography, poking holes. He doesn't want to find any holes, but he just wants to poke around and help other people understand how important this movement is. But the change that has happened since that first paper eight years ago is he can see Bitcoin as we move into futures based products and other structured instruments. He can now see it in its current form, becoming both a means of exchange, store of value and even unit of account. Wow, I mean, you're right. And you talked about it in your recent report, Big Ideas 2023, just how strong the fundamentals are. So it's not a surprise that we're seeing more institutions taking Bitcoin seriously. And I want to dig into some of that, including your ETF application. But for those not familiar, maybe with Art Laffer, I know he was one of your mentors and he's famous for the Laffer curve. Right. And it talked about supply side economics and that after a certain point, taxing too much is counterproductive. Do you want to share anything else just in terms of what people should know about his work? And we have a little bit of a connection because he was your professor at USC, right? I taught there, so go Trojans. Oh, did not know that. Oh, great, Natalie. Yes, he was trying to establish a supply side school of economics at the University of Southern California. And I was an undergraduate. His program was a graduate program and we met over dinner through his assistant and we were all taking night classes or doing night classes together or different ones. And he said, why don't you come in and take my courses? And I said, well, I'm an undergrad and you're in the graduate school. That's why I can't. He said, sure you can. So I had the luxury of being a part of that program and applying it to my undergraduate degree. Now, I think there were some disagreements of the school and so the supply side school of economics did not happen. But his experience did motivate him to start his own firm around supply side economics and really become a consulting firm to the financial services industry. As we were going through the late 70s, early 80s, all of the controversies, especially around monetary policy, he was also extremely important as an adviser to Ronald Reagan. Part of Reaganomics was the Laffer tax cuts, and he actually has advised many presidents. He won't do it any more to be reimbursed in any way. He just wants to be able to say what he thinks in its purest form and hope they understand his many years of wisdom and take him up on it. So, yeah, I think he's been a much bigger influence on global monetary and fiscal policy than many people understand. In the 70s, Chile, he helped turn that economy around. He was part of Thatcher's turnaround in the UK as well. And sort of the supply side movement started stirring. And in the US, of course, was exemplified by Reaganomics. So I think, I mean, in my opinion, his mentor, Robert Mondell, won a Nobel Prize for his monetary theories. And I think art should win a Nobel Prize, my humble opinion, because without much fanfare, he does not beat his chest on all of this, but he's made a big difference in a lot of countries. And I think he is so excited about Bitcoin right now being our shot around the world of going back, in the case of the United States, to private money, pre -fed. He's extremely excited about that. And so I can't wait to hear, you know, what comes out of his mouth on our ARK brainstorm in a week or so. Wow. Well, I'll definitely be tuning into that. And, you know, you mentioned the monetary policy in the 70s and the inflation. And as you were getting your career revved in the 70s and 80s, can you tell me about some of the lessons learned? Because you saw, I mean, monetary policy impact and create these sort of bubbles, rises and falls, and that ultimately probably primed you for wanting this rule -based monetary system. And I know you've been outspoken. You know, you wrote that letter to Federal Reserve Chairman Powell about his interest rate hikes and how aggressive they were. So what are the lessons and the takeaways from your career, focusing so much as you have on research, as opposed to maybe backwards looking indicators that so many people are focused on? What's the big lesson and why is Bitcoin so important? Well, I think monetary, I mean, monetary policy around the world is unhinged. It's completely subject to different human theories about how monetary policy should work. It's, you know, you've got the monetary school, the Keynesian school, the Austrian slash supply side school. But then you have on the other side of it's not just monetary policy. It is politics that influences monetary policy around the world. So it's not independent around the world, maybe a little more so in the United States than in other places. But I just think pure politics is much more of an influence than many people appreciate. And this idea of a rules based monetary system, a global one, you know, bringing the world together and, you know, preventing some of these discontinuous moves one country to the other, sending people into poverty and destroying, you know, purchasing power. I think if we could have a global monetary system that is rules based and digital, so getting rid of some of the issues that, of course, that we've had with gold over the years, I think it would be transformative. I mean, we always say ARK is, you know, is focused on technologies that are going to transform the way the world works and make it a better place. This is one of the most important ones. Well, I know you focus a lot on this sort of disruptive innovation, which many people would say that Bitcoin is the most important revolutionary disruptive technology that we've seen really since maybe the creation of the Internet. Before that, maybe the printing press. But how did you navigate the sort of cycles before you created ARK? I know you heard about Bitcoin in 2011, but before right before that, we had the great financial crisis that Bitcoin was sort of born out of and we had the tech bubble. How did you navigate all of those? And I'm sure that informed, you know, how you invest in your company. Sure. So in the 90s, yes, I was managing money. And I remember the tech and telecom bubble and was very excited about the Internet from its earliest days. I was an analyst on a lot of those stocks. And, you know, for a long time, it took investors and analysts a long time to wrap their heads around what was going on. But we studied it and, you know, kept going. And of course, definitely rode the wave that became the bubble. And I was at a hedge fund. I had created it with a partner, Lulu Wang. And as we were going through that Internet crisis, we were saying, wow, this I mean, the bubble, we were getting a little concerned. And we had the luxury of using options, mostly puts at the time. So we fared fairly well through that. And then when I joined Alliance Bernstein was that was my next firm. It was June of one and we were in the middle of the bust. And I remember I inherited a portfolio with nearly 40 percent technology stocks. The benchmark at the time was around 35 percent, and everybody was hostage to benchmarks less so back then. I was surprised that, you know, there was that emphasis at Alliance Bernstein back then on benchmarks.

"Well, you see how easy this is now. Now you look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks, this is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporations, but guess who's getting the guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton Foundation gets paid the rebuild Welcome right. to the podcast. We are in the same studio today, which is kind of nice. So thanks again for downloading. If you're just listening, if you're watching or watching the clips, uh, thanks for watching as well. And just for a quick mention, so I don't forget, if you haven't downloaded our app yet, I'm noticing we're getting a lot of downloads and the cool thing is when the morning Mike's program is going Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I'm the, seeing the view count go up and up and up, which is awesome. So I know we're only, you know, we're still in the dozens. I'd like to get into the hundreds and eventually thousands, um, but it's a cool program. If you haven't listened to it, it's a quick 15 minutes to quick by morning, run down three days a week of the top five topics, three minutes each. Do a great job. They do an awesome job when we're, when we fill in the stuff. We screw the whole thing up. Yes. Yeah. We, we blow the whole, the whole, uh, the schedule, but, um, but they do awesome and they're funny. I love it. It's a quick, you know, down and dirty 15 minutes, top five items of the day. And now you get your day started off on the, uh, they, you know, I think on the right foot, they were saying this week, like, Oh, it's so negative all the time, but I think they're hilarious. They take the negative stuff that's going on, but of course the negative stuff isn't the news. Yeah. Yeah. That's what we're seeing. I mean, carjackings again, Rochester had another, you know, record night. I mean, it's incredible how that was going on. And so it's amazing is, is like the Democrats just sit around and watch this happen in every city and every city. It's insane. Yeah. I sent you an article earlier this morning about Philadelphia. Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.
A highlight from Hijos de la Esclava | Glatas 4 con Flavio Velzquez
"What are you thinking at the same time? What I'm thinking at the same time? I'm thinking about the texts of what I think, what I write, or the first of the books. And I don't know if it's because of the remark that comes from the interpretation of the book. So I think that this is something that has to do recently with the recognition, with this new perspective of the book, with N .T. Wright. So I can't say that it's always there, or maybe it's not always there. In the book, you interpret the things that come from the book. But I think that we have a lot of resources, more than anything, to look more into the history and try to understand the thinking of the book. And I think that it's not just a way of looking at the Judaism, but what I think is to adopt all the Gentiles through the messages, to do something, well, not to justify it, because the world is going to have to do it. We'll see. Thanks for watching this podcast. Did you see? Did you see? Let's start. Two of the figures that present more are possible, for example, from the religious era, N .T. Wright, because it's also religious, from the academic era in Spain, so that he won't be able to talk more about the philology of Antonio Piñero. I can understand these questions, because I see many texts that are in the New Testament, that the influence of the principal is on Paulina's cards, if you think of Paulino, he has a great influence on Judaism, a Judaism that is played with the Roman culture, because Paulina is a god of Jerusalem, a god of the Tarzó region, he has other influences, and I think that's a bit speculation, that he is the god of Judaism in the diaspora, in the best of cases, for what he relates and what he says. It could be included, that at the end of the day, he was a god of Judaism, that's to say that his father was not a god of Judaism at all, and at the end of the day, there are speculations, but what he says is that he is a god of practicing. And when he refers to these questions, who are the saints of the promise, to Paul, I think that was the question, because he is Lulu, to Paul, the saints of the promise are all the saints who will be the saints of the promise. It is independent if it is a god of the spirit, or a god of the people, if it is a god of the spirit, the man who will be the saints is a god of the promise. And this is the invitation that is included. In the second verse, it says, I am a god like you, because I am also a god like you, and that is important, because it is not just a more refined way that Paulina is playing with a god of Judaism, because if you are playing with a god of Judaism, you will simply play with a god like you, and you will be a god like you. And it is not just a god like you, because I am like you, because I am like you, I have a distinct culture, and I adopt this culture so that I can have a cultural connection, and here a little bit more is referring to, I do not want to record that salvation is good because we are talking about culture. If we are talking about what we want, if the supply is being supplied to the public, if the public is being supplied to the public, the government is being paid for it, and the government is being paid for it, and they say, no, no, no, they are going to supply us. And they say, no, they are not being offended, and they say, why not? Because it is not an offense, because it is a cultural thing. So Paulina says, it is not an offense that is being treated, but it is a molestion, because how is it possible to be in the difficult place? And now, I know that for a living, the car is being evangelized, and for the first time, if we are talking about a mystery, we do not know what is their ability, or if they are having a problem, they are going to like the glasses, and they say, that is my insurance, and that is what I have to do, I have to do this to protect them. It is not bad. They are going to like the glasses. And they are going to like the glasses, it is also possible that they are going to like the glasses, and they want to give us a practicality in the nation of Greece, with them.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/02/23
"We could use this every day for the M &M segment. I love it. Knowing me, there is a reason. This of course was sung by a jingle singer named Cynthia Fee for the theme to the Golden Girls, but written by this wonderful man right here, Andrew Gold, who did such great work with Linda Ronstadt and others, and wrote some pretty great records himself like Lonely Boy, the great Andrew Gold would have been. Gosh, it was his birthday today, and so there we go. Well, we need friends. Oh my goodness gracious me, we sure do. We have to have a community, and you know, I'm going to start out maybe riling you up a little bit. I'm not going to suggest you're mistaken by saying that when I say that people should be rallying behind Trump uniformly, I get it, we're going to let the game come to us, voters are going to get to decide, but boy, this would be a good time if you've been on the fence, and you have been sort of squishy about, well, I don't know, Trump, baggage, DeSantis, maybe an alternative, I kind of like that vague fellow. Now, this is a time to stand with a guy who is being unbelievably persecuted, not prosecuted, persecuted for his beliefs. You know, Mark, I've been thinking a lot about that, and first of all, I can't believe my level of emotion right now. I didn't expect to be this emotional. Me neither. Give voice to that, because you and I have done this forever, right? We have some decades, there have been presidents we liked, those we didn't. Policies we thought were great, policies we thought were horrible. There is something singularly horrid about this. Please, you go first. Well, the word is sinister. There's a sinister effort to stop the election process, to subvert the election. Everybody knows it, everybody's in on it. The Democrats are well aware of this. When Trump says, why did they wait two and a half years to throw all this at me? We know the answer to that, so I'm feeling kind of a combination. First of all, I'm surprised at how sad I am, and how fearful I am. I don't know how this is going to play out, but it's not good. It's not good for the Democrats, it will not be good for the Democrats. It's not good for Republicans, it's not good for this constitutional republic to criminalize political speech. And that's literally what Jack Smith, this guy, this scoundrel, is attempting to do. He's making the case that he knows that Donald Trump didn't believe that the election was suspect. Now, you and I are in a very unique position here on this. We hear every day from people from all walks of life. We hear people North, South, East, West, young, old, right, left. Is there any doubt in your mind that of the thousands of reactions you and I have gotten from people saying that Trump got hosed in 2020, that the thousands and thousands of people who have said this election was not on the up and up, COVID laws, they changed things because of COVID, they changed election laws in the middle of the night, all the suspicions that people have. Is there any doubt in your mind, Mark, that those are not sincerely held beliefs? None. Of course they believe it. And people can agree with it, disagree with it, and you can feel that things were squirrelly, or you can say, as Trump does, that we definitely won. You even have the right in America to be a little bit of a nut. You can go full Sidney Powell with the Hugo Chavez changing the Dominion machine scenario. Even that's not illegal. You can go to jail for saying, you can go to jail for saying, ladies and gentlemen, I believe that the moon is made out of Swiss cheese. Come get me, put handcuffs on me, take me away. Now, here's though, but let's go apples to apples. The government, Biden's government, Biden's Justice Department, and of course that's the whole story, is trying to make the case that Trump's words and actions led to the riot on January 6th, and therefore disenfranchised voters. You were talking about this earlier. They're going to use that old gag, the disenfranchisement of voters. How are voters disenfranchised by sitting around saying, as far as I know, Trump didn't get into the White House in 2021. Nobody was disenfranchised. Biden's the president. He's in the Oval Office. Nothing got, who was disenfranchised? How can you even make that claim, Mark? What can you, what can you possibly, okay, so Trump didn't think that he legitimately lost in 2020. Guess what? Join the club because I've got a montage that I'm going to play not from 2016. But Mike, that's not possible because 2020 was the first year that anybody ever doubted an election. Surely you don't have audio of Democrats doubting results from the past. Go, go, do you remember the George W. Bush, Al Gore Supreme Court battle? Remember that one? You're old enough to remember that? There's a montage that everybody can now hear. It goes back to those days when prominent Democrats, one after another, lined up and said that George W. Bush is not the legitimate president of the United States. He was the president select, remember? Oh, sure. And the Supreme Court anointed him. And by the way, all of those completely untrue things that they said, they have every right to say them. They have every right to say them. Nobody came to their house and went, we're going to indict you and lock you up for the rest of your life for saying those things. You know, one of the most popular text message articles that I've received is when people text me the keyword Trump and we send back a list of Trump accomplishments. Because a lot of people forget what happened in the four years that he was president. So thousands and literally tens of thousands of people have sent that text message, the word Trump, to my text line, which is 800 -655 -MIKE. A close second, and now I think a close third, will be when people want to hear the montage of Hillary, of the late John Lewis, of Jimmy Carter. Go down the list. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, not only doubting the legitimacy of the 2016 election, but now you can hear the montage that the great folks over at Grabian put together questioning the outcome of the George Bush Al Gore election. If you text the keyword fraud to 800 -655 -MIKE from your phone, we'll send you back the video clip of the election deniers Hillary Clinton at all in 2016. If you text the words more fraud to 800 -655 -MIKE, we'll send you back the montage of all the election deniers from the George Bush Al Gore battle. I mean, it's complete hypocrisy. And Mark, there is a nefarious, diabolical, sinister, history -making chapter that was just begun yesterday. And I know where this ends. I think you do too. You're a smart guy. I've been listening to you all day. This is going to have to be decided by the Supreme Court. The judge that has been randomly assigned to the Trump case, wink, wink, yeah, some random assignment. Have you read about this Lulu? This piece of work? She gives people jail sentences for January 6th when the government didn't want jail sentences for them. She sent a couple to jail for taking a selfie on Capitol Hill that day, and the government wasn't seeking any jail time. But this judge, an Obama appointee, is going to hear—so listen, get ready, because she's going to throw—she will absolutely rule against Trump. We're going to see a guy that might—I'm not kidding you—brace yourself, wind up in prison next year. Jack Smith is asking for a speedy trial. And I'm under no illusion that this thing is going to play out nicely or have a happy ending until it gets to the Supreme Court. I don't think it'll play out quickly, though. Every concern you have is rock solid, but I don't think there's—the reason he wants a speedy trial is so that it's plunked right down in the middle of the primaries. And I don't think that justice is going to move briskly here. Did you catch John Law in the— Wait a minute, wait a minute, hold on, let me push back on that with love. Let me tell you why. They hold the cards. They're playing—this is their game, Mark. This is not Trump's game. Now, you're right, this could—in a normal world, it would play out forever. This isn't normal. They're breaking the rules. They're making up the rules as they go. Of course they want a speedy trial because they want to disqualify Trump from November of 2024. Because, Mark, hey, announce your voice. He's going to win. He's going to win. I am more convinced of that now than ever. Well, the nomination, surely it seems, and I guess on a future day we'll talk about whether this helps or hurts in the general, but what do these people want? One of two things is true. They're trying to destroy him so that he'll never be the nominee or the president. Or they're trying to—or it's an odd four -dimensional chess where they are trying to gin up so much support in the MAGA base that he's absolutely the nominee because they think Biden can beat him. Which of those is true? That's a great question because they are not oblivious to these crazy poll numbers. They worship at the altar of the New York Times. The New York Times is predicting that Trump's going to win, and the New York Times is saying he might win in the general election. The New York Times -Siena poll is looking at a head -to -head matchup. I mean, Trump's got the— He is, without a doubt, a formidable political opponent that is the—I believe—I'm going to say it right now, and I'll get in trouble for it because I'm trying to be neutral. And I will absolutely support whoever the Republican nominee is as decided by the voters. But I have a belief that I think is going to be shared by millions and millions of people. Trump's the only guy who can beat the Democrats. Trump is the only guy who can win. Trump is the only guy who can stop them. I don't like the chances of any other—look at any one of them. DeSantis is a vague— You think Biden beats the—if the half -court shot goes in and DeSantis wins the lottery ticket and somehow gets the nomination in Milwaukee next year— And he could. And he could. And he could. You think Biden beats him? I think that Trump is our best chance, Mark. No, I mean, listen, I'm prayerfully going to believe that any Republican is going to beat this infirm old man who's shuffling around asking who ordered the veal cutlet. I don't know, but I still believe now, more than ever, that Trump is the best chance. Everything about the deep state, the uni -party, the system, everything is coming to fruition. It's true, Mark. And they're doing it— And he's vindicated. And they're saying it—just Jack Smith demanding a speedy trial. I mean, you took your time for two and a half years. Now you want a speedy trial? Are you kidding me? No, no, no. They're doing it right under our noses. And let me talk about the final heartbreak of the last 24 hours. You've touched on it. Mike Pence. Mike Pence. I've interviewed him on a number of occasions. What a good man. What a good Christian. What a servant's heart. He's got a servant's heart. And listen, he's a former colleague. He's a talk radio guy. I know, radio guy. I mean, he loved talking to me when I interviewed him on a number of occasions about the business. You know, he was in front of a microphone.
Steve Gill: Feminists Don't Care About Women's Sports
"Again, it's just one of those weird things and you look at Leah Thomas on O'Reilly gains from the university of Kentucky, who is actually from the Nashville area. She's been fighting this good fight to protect biological women in college sports, and of course she ended up tying with Leah Thomas and she's the one who didn't get the prize because she happened to be a biological female. And they're going to destroy women's sports. I mean, at some point, we couldn't have separate, but equal teams for blacks and whites. Why do we have separate but equal teams for women and men if there is no distinction? If the Democrats can't even define what a woman is, why don't we just have teams? And there'll be a volleyball team. And the best volleyball players will make the team. What are your men or women? And that would really kind of eradicate the effect of title 9 that forces colleges and high schools to spend a lot of money promoting women's sports where now you have guys that are going over and competing on the women's sports teams. Why have that distinction do away with the things and unfortunately that would deprive a lot of women of athletic opportunities because men are going to have more physical attributes in most sports and you would destroy women's sports. But that really I think is what some of these anti feminists fake women want. They don't care about women or they wouldn't be doing this stuff. And the advertisers, the ESPN and others that want to celebrate these fake women are not doing a service to women's sports at all. Any more than Nike, supporting some guy who's flat tested to promote sports bras for women and leggings for women, I just don't believe that women are going to see this guy Dylan, whatever his name is and think, oh, I want to go buy me some Nike that's going to make me look like that guy when they can go buy Lulu mon and actually look good.

"Edition from NPR News. I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. The New Texas law that, in effect, bans abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy is an unusual statute. Typically, federal judges have blocked bands on abortion prior to fetal viability, citing Roe v. Wade and other legal precedents. Those bands usually reach federal judges because officials charged with carrying out enforcement Are sued, but the Texas state Legislature put private citizens in charge of enforcement and created incentives for people to sue abortion providers. It's an unprecedented mechanism. In her dissent last week when the Supreme Court refused to block the law. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said it turns citizens into quote bounty hunters, offering them cash prizes. Civilly prosecuting their neighbors. Medical procedures. Elizabeth separate joins us now to talk about all this. She's a law professor at the University of Texas. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. First. Can anyone bring a suit and who can they sue? Anyone anywhere except for state employees can sue anyone who provides or AIDS and abets an abortion after six weeks or intends to do so. So this is a really wide universe, from abortion providers to abortion funders to friends, family clergy people. Family physicians and beyond and and this change about who enforces the law. I mean, that's very important, right? Yes, Texas enacted a six week ban. We've seen those from other states, but they've been enjoying because they clearly fly in the face of Supreme Court precedent. What's unique here is that instead of the state enforcing the law, anyone can enforce the law and attempts to and so far has been relatively successful at Side stepping the federal courts. I mean, people could make tens of thousands of dollars, I assume and and have their legal fees reimbursed from the defending lawyer. If they win, Yes. So it's $10,000 per person per abortion. So you could imagine a doctor and nurse or receptionist uber driver, So the bounty adds up rather quickly, And another thing to note is that this allows individuals to file suits anywhere in the state. So an abortion provider could be required to go defend herself 500 miles from her office and home, So it's really meant to to harass people who regularly perform abortions or intend to perform abortions. As we mentioned the Supreme Court did not block this law, at least for now. Does that mean that this could start straight away that people could start suing abortion providers, nurses, people who drive people to an abortion clinic? Yes. As of Wednesday, it was possible for individual bounty hunters to file lawsuits. Um, for any abortion. Past that six week mark, Have we seen that happen yet? We haven't seen it happened yet. One thing that abortion clinics are doing is securing temporary restraining orders against the most likely bounty hunters, Uh, Texas right to life in a number of high profile individuals who have been running a tip line where folks can report any suspicion of an abortion happening. So what is next? In terms of this actual laws legality the initial litigation, which went to the Supreme Court where the providers were asking for an emergency. Injunction against the law is still alive. It's at the court of Appeals for the fifth Circuit, so depending on what the fifth Circuit decides it could go back to the district Court. We could eventually see that District court enjoying the law or enjoying some applications. Of that law. Other potential litigation could involve live lawsuits. If we see plaintiffs filing lawsuits in the state courts against abortion providers or people who ate in a bad abortion, then we would see an array of defenses based in the Constitution, among other things. That's Elizabeth Supper, a law professor at the University of Texas Thank you very much. Thank you. Tens of thousands of Afghans tried to leave Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover, among them a small community of ethnic waggers. They escaped persecution in China decades ago, settling in Afghanistan. Now they're trying to flee the Taliban. Amid fears that the militant group will send them back to China. NPR's Emily Fang reports in 1976 Abdul Disease, not sarees, parents packed up as many of their belongings as they could And left their home in York and a county in southern Xinjiang. Several dozen weaker families went with them because of cruelty of Chinese companies. They killed many, many lot of oils. They didn't give the permission of prayer from York, and they walked across the snow capped paneer mountains separating Xinjiang and Afghanistan. And down into the walking corridor in horses. They're riding in the horses and then came to Patterson. Then after that they go to Capitol of Kabul. The Wickers were farmers and traders back in Xinjiang, but they had to start new lives. Many of them found jobs in export import restaurants or tailoring, they became Afghan citizens. Mohammed is another one of those citizens. His parents left Xinjiang's Golgotha or meaning city and Chinese and came to Afghanistan in 1961, and during the US occupation of Afghanistan. Life improved Once time got it done. I started a business selling precious gems. My wife became a doctor. My eldest daughter was about to graduate with the university degree in law, My son with a journalism degree. Finally, Mohammad thought he'd found a home until the Taliban took over this year. We have all the same fears of the Taliban and the chaos that other Afghans have. But we also feared the Taliban will send us back to China, where the government is detained and jailed hundreds of thousands of them. Using only Mohammed's first name because he fears for his family's safety. China believes Muslim leaders want to split from China and are sympathetic to global jihadist groups and that without U. S troops in the region, weaker fighters could train in Afghanistan to then attack China. In July, China's foreign minister met with the Taliban who pledged they would stop any weaker terrorists. Some workers have traveled to Syria and Afghanistan to fight with extremist groups. But there's no evidence those fighters have ever managed to attack China. There's also little evidence that they share the hardline ideology of the Taliban or other radical groups. Most we, Gore's don't profess the same sort of Islam that the Taliban does. This is Sean Roberts at Georgetown University professor who has studied the leaders. They're much more focused on gender equity in terms of their Children's career, path and future. They may be religious. But they are not focused on Sharia law as the ultimate authority in their lives. But China's fears that we gers in Afghanistan might have links to terrorism have been hard to shake off. In 2000 and one the U. S captured 22 weaker is in Afghanistan who they suspected were working with Al Qaeda and sent them to Guantanamo Bay. Most of the week. Gore's who ended up in Guantanamo Bay were Basically sold by Pakistani bounty hunters to the U. S government, and they were interrogated for years. In some cases before the U. S realized that these people were not Threat to the U. S. Or really, to anybody. Wickers do have a long history in Afghanistan. Ryan Thumb historian of Weaker culture at the University of Manchester says. For centuries, leaders frequently traveled to the Middle East and Central Asia..

"I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. One of the biggest questions surrounding the conservatorship of Britney Spears is how a woman who's been able to perform cut records and work for her millions of dollars is somehow unfit to make decisions about her own life. She has been subject to her conservatorship, which gave control of her to her father, Jamie Spears and others for 13 years and in dramatic courtroom testimony last month, she claimed she's being abused by her father, among others on her conservatorship team. Jamie Spears is now asking for those allegations to be investigated by the court, and he has denied wrongdoing, saying his acting in his daughter's best interests A new article from The New Yorker magazine has fresh details about why Britney Spears was put into this arrangement and why she is so desperately trying to get out. It's by JIA Tolentino and Ronan Farrow and JIA Tolentino joins me now. Hello. Hi, Lulu. It's great to be here. You have an astonishing amount of detail about this story. I think at the heart of it, though. It's about Britney's love for her kids, right? Yeah, I mean, take us back to 2007. When the paparazzi was saying Britney was quote going crazy. What was really going on behind the scenes? Yes. So this is an aspect of the story that I don't think has been central enough to the public narrative around her so called breakdown. So she's in her early mid twenties. She got married six months after meeting Kevin Federal, I and, you know, has two Children within 12 or 13 months of each other. You know, many people who are closer around the time suspect that she was dealing with severe postpartum depression, and we have to remember how famous she was how central she was to a tabloid industry that was reaching its all time aggressive peak. Everywhere she goes. There's mobs of paparazzi, you know, jumping out of their cars in the middle of the road, chasing her down on foot flashbulbs everywhere, shouting provocations to get her to break down. And so she gets divorced when she is still nursing her two month old second child, the more that she's not with her Children, the more she sort of spirals, the more she spirals, the less likely it is that she will have access to her Children in the future. And I think it's important to note that the two incidents that sort of cemented that era as her quote unquote crazy era when she shaved her head, and when she hit the paparazzi's car with an umbrella. Those were directly preceded by her driving to Kevin Federline's house. Followed by photographers asking to see the Children and being refused. And then enters a man called Sam Lutfi who got very close to spears. Can you briefly explain who he is? Yes. So Sam Light feet. He's this sort of obscure Hollywood operator with undefinable, somewhat suspicious motives, a history of legal disputes. But he swoops into her life after Britney has fired her longtime manager Larry Rudolph, and he sort of assumes this controlling role. And what Lotfy told us in an interview that one of the things that Created this conflict between him and Britney's parents, who were genuinely worried about her and worried that he was exploiting her was that he would tell her you want to cancel that meeting. Go ahead and cancel it. You want to buy this car on impulse? Just buy it and her parents become afraid that he is just going to siphon her money off While she's in crisis that, you know she's going to end up underwater and debt exploited sort of drained of this fortune that she has built. And you and your colleague Ronan Farrow got to speak with a woman called Jacqueline Butcher. Close friend, Um, to the Spears is for a long time, and she testified 13 years ago to create the conservative ship because she wanted Spears also away from lefties influence, But she now regrets that. What did she tell you? So Jaclyn Butcher was a close friend of Lynne Spears and close to the Spears family for close to a decade, and she was present in Britney's house. And, you know, I had good reason to believe that the parents were right in thinking. Maybe this crisis is due to this man Sam Lutfi that is in her house at this time of breakdown, and she gives this primary testimony. That is central to the conservative ship going into place. And you know, she says in an interview. I thought we were helping. And I wasn't and I helped to corrupt family sees all this control. Well, let's talk about Britney Spear's parents because we had then a fragile spears surrounded, possibly by people who did not have her best interests at heart. And then her father. Tell us about him. I mean, once Britney has her breakdown for lack of a better word. You did tell this horrific scene with her father screaming at Brittany. Yes. So by all the accounts that we heard Jamie and Brittney did not have The best relationship growing up. It's sort of well documented Lynne Spears, Britney's mother, writes about in her memoir that Jamie was wrestling with pretty severe alcoholism. For most of their, you know, life as a family together. And Jamie, though, assumes authority as conservator and Jacqueline Butcher who was there in the room at the You know, at the lawyer's offices around much of this, she says that one of the reasons was that Jamie wasn't afraid of Britney being angry at him. And there is this brutal scene that Jacqueline told us about. You know, it's shortly after the conservative ship is in place, and they're all sitting in Britney's office and our house in Beverly Hills and Jamie turns to Britney and says, Baby, You're fat..

"And yeah. It's like very similar to a lot of people have those two different beliefs of like if i if i get busy out or if i work like if i'm creating a successful business means i'm going to be either burnt out while i'm going to work with the ground or it's gonna be more responsibility on stress. Which isn't necessarily ice like you said it's just a belief and just to believe yet and the best part about it is that you can change that belief you would also change your business and shape the way that you want to experience it right. Yeah that's right that's right. I'm thinking about all different. Things like about my business on displaying very gentle with myself thing very compassionate and thinking of what do i really want to try to take one day off a week and that just feels incredible but this week. It's probably not gonna. It's probably not gonna happen. But that's on drilling calmed my inner critic down and just i can do what i want my business and when i can have a dial have just had these off the klopp feeling and have hold nice. What was what was some of the biggest lessons learned through the energetics of money. Like what you feel like you take. What was the script you know. The the written yet. woods kind of person so i really loved the script and you had a few like empty lines way. Fill things and i write in there. That i'm going to go on a retreat and i'm gonna have my house and beautiful garden and then lots of really great things have happened to now with in house just little plants a little things that make it good with doing some stuck in the garden. But i've manifested torri effectively to retreats and one amazing holiday with girlfriends this year. All my gosh and didn't even really know that. Until i was riding that that's what i was going to ride and then it's just has manifested so that's amazing and i've now done go. I'll tell you i. I tried to raid shower. I'd like you said. Put it in the glass but a need mc loss is in the town so now i've had to redo it a lot lace content. Because that's what i van. That is what. I really love like sort of a big long version of an estimation really. Yeah absolutely and i mean you don't necessarily have to read in the shower Bike up in sitting bannon rated if you really wanted to. It doesn't have to be in the known. The what i love about. That scraped is being able to shift you. Money believes the in a really powerful way in just doing it in the morning. Because that's when your brain is at its worst or acceptive and it's the day right like when you read that script in the morning. How do you feel for the day. The my thing so good. That's why i like to have things that are kind of retains that are attached to something else. So that's why. I like to have it shower because there i am i'm is. We'll be doing that. Die on is. We'll be doing that. I can't ignore it. Yeah so good. They took those about. Is there any other major changes that you made or anything else. You implemented from the energetics of money that you've noticed has made an impact. I've always said most of the things was much more enjoyment of my business. I really think that kind from not thinking have to work so hard all the time so that really that really helped and also the kind of kindness and compassion to myself that i would is not has nothing to do with my business. That would be in perfect as kind of as i am and it could just really loved loved. Loved all the audience. Stuff the a chart yet. The visualizations. I really loved and got really really amazing. Things kind of Especially the child went on the boat and that was just fantastic. And i really think that that's had a significant impact on me because feel more in touch with that because we sort of had kind of a chat to my little girl and so now feel that she's close out that i can kind of talk with her about things and then there's the other parts i guess. I think i've done this thing called family systems and it's all bet this various pots. We've been you so. I had some very loud unit could announce khanna pods and so could really just have compassion with those parts. And really just saying that. You don't have to do that job anymore. you know. you're trying to keep me safe and keep me small and but you don't have to do that. Anyone on all growing up. You didn't have keep telling me that. I can't do that because i can't do that. So that it's like an ongoing ongoing like maybe lifetime an incredibly lobbying and self compassionate and and call in to to myself in li- janney happy about that honestly like that biggest thing right like the mole that we are so much more compassionate with ourselves less go download spirals of not not not feeling good enough full will judge themselves for things that were completely out of control or even making little mistakes. We wouldn't look it out on inner child in are like that's terrible mistake. You shouldn't do that. You should just give up right like the way that we talk to ourselves is so powerful. I think that doing the nhl work is really where it's add being able to shift that at a subconscious level helps to shoot down. Blake systems every day official. I really yet. I really think so. I just can use to sort of slip those things in on just way out that. Oh that's a pa. That's trying to tell me something and all kinds of listen to it and liz gill but saying that fee can be in the car via you know and we can be a car but it can't be driving and calms beat navigating at is is doing the overdriving. I love that analogy from beautiful way. To think about fia now in critic everything because it is the oldest different thoughts about selves trying to communicate and support us in moving forward but also with the elements of like we want growth in evolution. We also want to be safe. So it's like we're trying to work each other off each other. And not i think in the past i like all wanna get rid of that. My inner critic of dislike compassionate. It thinks it's doing a really important job. Yeah and so. Bring it into the fall. It's it's a pod.

"From NPR News. I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. Good morning. And thanks so much for being with us today, Happy Mother's Day and what a year it has been for mothers in particular. In just the latest jobs report out Friday, the number of women in the workforce dropped last month again, and that's after one third of all those who lost their jobs. This pandemic were mothers, many of whom had To stay home with remote kids and those who were able to keep their jobs well. They still bore the brunt of keeping the house running and the kids learning while a dangerous disease was swirling around in a moment, we'll hear from mothers about the stress and some of the clarity enjoy this exceptional year brought but first Given the challenges. It's no surprise that just maybe maybe women were not in the mood to have kids this past year Last year, the number of babies born in the U. S fell to its lowest level in four decades. But the birth rate had been declining for six years before that, in the Black Stone is a sociology professor at the University of Maine who studies fertility rates. And she joins us now from Minneapolis to talk about what the numbers may mean. Thank you so much for joining us. Happy to be here. I'd like to know your takeaway from these low birth numbers. We should take a breath and not worry about it. Birth rates have gone up and down, at least for us long as we've been tracking birth rates, But I don't think that that means doom and gloom for us. I mean, that is a controversial take away because a lot of the things that I've been reading have been all about how this is going to spell the end of American productivity's e the end of you know, women. Um, as sort of caregivers. I mean, I've read all sorts of hot take. So why do you think this is not something we should be worried about? I think that our focus is in the wrong place, to be honest with you. So if you look at birth rates globally, we really do not have a problem of too few people in the world. In fact, most of us would argue that we have a problem of too many people. So if that's true, then what we're really talking about is a concern about the population within our national borders. One option that has been bandied about that. I think we should take seriously is supporting parents in the work that they do. And if we did that, if we had policies that were more supportive of families with Children, lo and behold, more people might often to parenthood. The other thing I think that we need to think very seriously about is changing our immigration policies so that we welcome more people in What we've seen is that a lot of women are delaying having Children toe later on in their careers. So is there any indication here that women are exercising more control over their lives by delaying or deciding not to have Children? One of the things that people talk about when we're looking at birth rates is Oh my God. Millennials aren't having enough kids and you've said already, Lulu. The issue is that people are delaying childbearing. They're having kids later. So I think the jury is still out on whether or when Millennials will have Children. Why would immigration help? Childbirth There's the issue of the birth rate, and the other is that I think the reason we're concerned about the birth rate is that our economy relies on at least a replacement fertility rate in order for it to continue to run. So the issue is, you know, we need more people in our national borders, but simply welcoming in more people who will contribute to the economy. Who will be workers in our economy is a solution that I think we should take seriously. And I also think the reason that we're not taking it seriously. Is that what we're really talking about here when we talk about birth rates is race. I think the concern that people don't want to say out loud is that women who are white and upper and middle class are having fewer Children. And those are the babies that some people want to see. I mean, does that bear out? Is that really the trend line that we're seeing that Ah, lot of the sort of contraction has been among white, wealthier women. It does bear. Oh, I mean white, wealthier women have lower birthrates than women of color and women of lower social classes. What do you think The effect of this past year has been because clearly it has not been a pleasant time for mother's speaking as one Right? I mean, I think the pandemic has revealed this ugly truth that we already knew. But we're feeling it in all kinds of different ways that we don't support parents in the job of raising Children in the way that we should, at least if we Believe to be true. What we claim is true, which is that we want people have kids and that we love Children. We've already known that women bear the brunt of labor in the household. But that has become even more visible as women who are at home are working to juggle the labor of the household in addition to their paid labor, in addition to You know, facilitating their Children's education, So it's just become even more clear that we have a problem. Some in the media and elsewhere were surprised by the fact that the pandemic being locked up with your spouse and wearing the same clothes, ad nauseum and having to home school. The kids did not end up in a sort of burst of fertility..

They've passed every test cleared every huddled jumped through every hoop now. All that remains is to unleash them on the wait. What's yes there's one more challenge. They must now cross the valley of death. All new products must pass through here before they reach the market. Many never make it out and sometimes that's okay if they don't work don't feel a need all for any number of other reasons but inventions. That could help address massive global issues. Also face this risk that's because technology's potential isn't the only factor that determines whether it will succeed. The valley of death is especially risky for innovations involving complex physical objects as opposed to software and for those in highly regulated industries like medicine building materials and transportation regulations and other obstacles aren't inherently bad. They're often designed to keep people safe but they do tend to scare off investors and that's what traps good ideas in the valley of gaffe that funding dries up before they can become profitable one of the fields where this problem is most pressing. Today is zero carbon technologies that is central to our future because they will help us eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and stabilize our climate but they also have features that make them particularly vulnerable in the valley of death. Let's look why that is and how we can change it. All new technologies must go through a development fans before they can become profitable for zero carbon technologies. The costs of this phase are high. The time lines are long and in spite of the good they can do. Demand is often low because they can require big changes in both infrastructure and consumer behavior for example electric heat pumps don't burn fossil fuels and when you factor in savings on energy use off cost competitive with gas furnaces but only change that heating and cooling systems every few decades direct air capture technologies meanwhile remove co two directly from the atmosphere. We need these technologies to reach our emission goals and several of them have already been proven to work but they're at risk of getting trapped in the valley of death because they're expensive. This creates a vicious cycle because the best way to know a costs is by well practicing making more of a product and refining it but high initial costs scare off investors and without their money companies can't continue to develop that technologies and can't ultimately decrease cost. Fortunately there's a way to break this cycle. Governments can help the gap when private investors won't fund technologies with such a high potential for social benefit. This isn't just theoretical. In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s functioning solar panels existed but one widely adopted because of that cost to change this. Germany offered government loans to companies creating soda piles and legally obligated utility companies to buy electricity produced using renewable energy the us and china followed suit by financing major solar panel projects. The cost of solar has dropped almost ninety percent since two thousand nine making it much easier to adopt a similar thing happened for wind energy. During the oil crisis of the nineteen seventies denmark invested in wind power and started taxing winds fossil fuel based competitors other countries took similar steps and as more wind power was generated worldwide. The costs of this technology dropped dramatically. These success stories tell us that government initiatives walk initiatives like boosting spending on research and development offering tax and loan incentives to stops that want to develop zero carbon technologies and consumers who want to buy them and putting a price on carbon emissions. We need governments to do what they did. For solar and wind for many more innovations at the end of the day ideas and inventions alone can't solve our most daunting problems. Policies and markets have to be shaped so the most promising

"Some text to speech systems. I mean as far you can understand them. They sound grit. Wavenet sounds sounds cool. Custom voices like the bbc. Sounds pretty good. But what people don't really understand. Is that really to make them sound proper. Natural not robotic and not kind of boring and making you switch off with through. It does require a little bit of you. Know attention requires shaping and moulding is that is that where you see linguists really helping our as far as the snl. Monaco been making things. Sound mall human definitely like like probably for maybe the beginning choosing the voice actually. It's also nice to help To know about the phonetics of voice and the a voice can can foreign by and So that you can really help Explaining why certain some good or Might not be the right fit for. Maybe you're brand custom assistant but also as you said for lulu as l. tuning meaning and so on ready to help haven't earphones and to Now want paul's those can actually do in terms of emphasis and all these Now trend mechanics actually Which are in a voice and the voice paramedics s. I mean that's that's the end part of it. And he can do so many mistakes and so many wrong things at the beginning when you start developing the essence start thinking about how should this t t a sound and whereas the defensive record him on oh and how won't get changed the whole deal in that that's another erkki. Just do without them and if that goes wrong the best estimate on help you to find unit to have occurs matic voice in the end in. Go one step. I suppose before as well and making sure that you've actually you've got the right words in the first place in the right order. So we're getting talkin about covers my voice assistance. We're gonna question from malcolm auckland moment while we're on the concept of voices and you know t t s and all that kind of stuff that you You announced a partnership with vocal ide- relatively recently joined. Tell us a little bit. More about will then tells we're thinking about how could we. Maybe we would try to fit our like persona dine that we create on linguistic character traits and so on that we would actually like most of the cases to also have the voice which exit to that. So i think it's good to Also partner or To communicate with each eds providers Right at the start so that you don't come into project and you have already selected boys and then you then you do the persona. The is i smarts to Yeah start at the beginning and work together where working at the moment is usually have two models. One is very general like it says everything perfectly and house perfect pronunciations and has all the words so it can sound nice but most of the time it's very without a character without charismatic without everything because it's not recorded that way then afterwards he pulled on top the voice like like how should it sound and sounding is not the same as emotions and things like that and we thought and still believing that is historic data at the beginning And to should start at the beginning to have a Voice and that's why we got in contact with them and then start thinking about. How could we developed the first grade a mental models for this voice before even going into how voice sound so. We wanna give it emotions. I was Interest in what are you finding from the work that you do in. We'll we'll get into the the supposed to relate to charisma. It is really commitment. But it's more broader than that. I i would would agree. But i would. I would put charisma as kind of a personality. Trait could be one of many kind of traits. If you like but the concept of having a persona and overarching persona on a brand voice is something that you know some companies have. It's what we talk about quite a lot. You know but the doesn't seem to be a tremendous lord of examples of things. I cost him. Brian voices in in the conversation is based on lord. It's getting there but what you see in from the work. They are doomed. The clients that you're doing. What's the appetite for those those custom voices and costumed personas and things. That is that like a monday thing that you always do or is it something that you kind of need to spend a bit more time selling en and all kinds of stuff well again quite fast. As a matter of fact the courses will once you explained to them that this is. I mean this is the person speaking to your customers in the end was you'll worry so. The persona design is not only the part fall forward voicing auditor that a sound or emotional voice. It's also words. it's It's it's you'll conversational partner so to to have conversation unique to people you need to persons bolsa. Dan own uses story. And if you just go for a use case and i want to fulfil you use case then it's very one sided conversation nobody stat. Even if i'm not interested in a conversation and talk to you and you come on and you bubble bobble you keep on talking. I will have a use. I have my own user story already will have in my act out this conversation. And that's how i speak. That's how i phrase my sentences replies to you and presumably design is more than just. How does voice. It's it's how does it speak. how do i react. What do i want. The i want to try and sell something as well to make that person more comfortable in this situation or Maybe educate that person on something else that i could also do in grand like i'm telling you how to screw in schools somewhere because he just went to a care and bought new bad.

"I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. U. S policy in the Middle East is taking another sharp turn. Last week, The Biden administration said it would resume diplomatic relations with Palestinian leaders and restore contributions to a U. N agency, which provides aid to the Palestinians. The new administration also emphasized U. S commitment to the quote two state solution, which envisions a sovereign and separate Palestine and Israel. It is a rejection of the heavily pro Israeli approach of the Trump Administration. But after four years of being frozen out, what's the state of Palestinian attitudes towards the U. S? Riyadh? Mansoor is the Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations, and he joins us Now. Welcome to the program, sir. You very much for having me ambassador months were under President Trump the U. S recognized Israel's claim to Jerusalem is its capital moved its embassy to Jerusalem, a city the Palestinians also claim as their capital. Three US also presented a peace proposal that left Israeli settlements in the West Bank in place. In your view, where have those policies left the Palestinians? Those policies created so much damage to the aspirations of the Palestinian people to actualize their inalienable rights to self determination. Independence off their state and the Trump administration tried over the years to convince the international community including in the Security Council to abandon the global consensus based on international law. So the vision of President Trump. Luckily, the international community rejected that and supported the global consensus on how to resolve this issue. Well, the new Secretary of state Anthony Blinken, says the U. S. Will not move the embassy back to Tel Aviv from Jerusalem and the bite administration does recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Several Arab countries now have relationships with Israel also, and Palestinians were not part of those negotiations. Is the Palestinian position weaker now. I mean, there have been substantial shifts that do not look like they will be rolled back. Well, you see, the new administration said many things And they said they are still committed to the two state solution on. They also said progress must be based on consultation with both sides on their consent. Do you see the issue of Jerusalem as something that is now? Ah, fete accompli. I mean, with not only the United States, but several other Countries moving their embassies to Jerusalem. Does that not make it more difficult? It makes things difficult and it's complicated. We are honoring and respecting international Law and Security Council resolutions. It is also that Jerusalem is one off the issues for final status negotiations. In addition to all these things, the Bison administration instead that they want to re establish diplomatic relations with the Palestinian leadership and their people. Our understanding. That doesn't mean only having our office three opened in Washington, D C but also re opening the United States Consulate in East Jerusalem. Which deals directly with the Palestinian people and report directly to the State Department. What we need through diplomatic channels to discuss away these issues, Andre to propose certain steps that could be taken while we are moving forward in the direction off opening doors for peace. Do you feel more optimistic? Now, with this new administration that negotiations will restart in the claims of the Palestinian people will be fully looked at by the United States in a way that perhaps they were not in the last four years. Was definitely you know, we hope and we expect that the these four years ahead of us will definitely be different than the four years behind us. But we also realized that there are some money. Big issues on the plate off the Biden administration that requires some time, but that means that we should engage through acquired diplomacy. We owe raise all the questions that we should praise and try to find answers to them collectively in preparation for more off an active Engagement with all of our partners in order to have a collective approach, not only on approach in which one party to be the shepherd off the process, and these are encouraging signals that would allow us to learn from the lessons of the past.

As Colorado public radio's Andrew Kenny explains, those voters have headed in very different directions. Mildara had been a Republican all his life. That changed soon after the riot at the U. S Capitol. I was just completely shocked and shamed. You know, that's not who I think of the Republican who we were and who we are, and so you know, there's something that I felt that I could no longer be a support of that party.

And he jokes that he and his wife won't cancel each other's votes out anymore always cheat each other taking me about I'll go Drop it off for you, Linc, Linc and And so now, you know, now we're unified voting for Matt. According to voter registration data. He was one of about 4600 people to quit the GOP in Colorado in the week after the riot. That's about seven times higher than the normal number of people who switched parties in a typical week, and it didn't happen for any other party. There's a similar story playing out in other states, too. But not all of those defectors are becoming Democrats. Some say the Republican Party hasn't done enough to support Trump and instead became unaffiliated voters. We've all been living a lie, and then told a lie. Sarah Walker lives near Dara in rural county. She thinks GOP leaders betrayed Trump by partially blaming him for the violence and refusing to overturn the election. There's only one Party in America, and it's a party that's not four Americans that's for corporations and businesses and media moguls that think they can silence our voices and our boats.

MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

"Bruce Springsteen. This is weekend edition from NPR News and Lulu Garcia Navarro. A record number of people have voted in Georgia's two Senate runoff elections that will determine control of the upper chamber of Congress. Over three million people have already cast their ballots in that state ahead of Tuesday's race, and over 100,000 of them are new voters. Who did not participate in the general election last year, Who wins will hinge on who shows up at the polls in a state that narrowly went for Joe Biden in November. Joining us now to talk about that is someone heavily involved in getting out the Latino vote. Michelle Solana is with the Latino community fund, Georgia and she's on the line from Al Ferretti, Georgia. Welcome to the program. Hi, Lulu. Happy to be here. Okay. Tell me what this is. Look like for you over the past few weeks. How have you been trying to get out the vote? Well, we focus our efforts on a campaign called Latinos for democracy. Where we give training and resources to smaller Latino led organizations throughout Georgia, and we have been doing text banking, sending out mailers doing literature drops. Just with the general elections and run off alone. We have texted over a million Georgians, so we're pretty happy with everything that we've done so far. Yeah, your organization is nonpartisan. Incumbent GOP Senators Kelly, La Flor and David Perdue are running against Democrats John Assaraf and Raphael Warnock, respectively. We know that 3% of George's voters in November we're Latino. That's a small number, but analysts believe their vote is crucial Wife our community is growing and more and more of Latinos are becoming eligible to vote. Latinos are very much a decisive factor because we are very young, and we're just becoming more and more present with the political process, which is really what we focus on in our nonpartisan efforts. What have been some of the challenges, though, of reaching out to the Latino community in particular. I mean, there was a huge push in November. I imagine people just might be tired of voting and hearing about voting. There are a couple of things first is language access. We try to keep as many volunteers that people on staff to be bilingual. However, not everybody gets that language access when they have outreach, so If there's a voter who's just become a naturalized citizen and isn't familiar with the process that goes to it full, all English location to vote. It's a bit difficult for them. That's why we developed our election protection program is to deal with that. Secondly, this is more of a cultural impact over the years, Latinos We've come to this beautiful country for opportunity and And all that stuff, But a lot of people in our community are also escaping more corrupt governments, sometimes violent governments that feeling towards government doesn't disappear just because you live in a new country, right? Hmm? Um, as was finally realized last November, But among Latinos has been known for quite some time. Latinos do vote for both parties. What are the issues that are motivating Latinos in Georgia? Especially since yes, this election has national ramifications with control. Of the Senate, But it is an election for senators who will represent the state one. It is our health and the pandemic Latinos own have access to health care, as maybe a lot of other groups and ethnicities do and a lot of people in the Latino community are on the front lines. You know, we're working in restaurants in hospitals and somebody's house, eccentric cetera. So This has impacted our community a lot. Secondly, immigration with immigration policy, getting more and more strict that has worried our community as well. And then, of course, the economy. You know, we come here for opportunity. We come here. So to get an education to be financially stable, So I would say those three biggest things that are in the Latino mind. I understand Voting is personal for you. Can you tell me a little bit of your own story? Absolutely back in 2002. My father was voluntarily deported and then in 2004, my mom was voluntarily deported. And that's when I ended up living in Columbia myself. I am Colombian. I lived in South America for many years when I came back my parents basically it's only Hey, we can't afford your college. You have American citizenship. You have that cold in ticket, you know, going, make the most out of it. I was sent when I was 18. However, when I came back, my brother was voluntarily deported. Ah, couple months later, so it's been about 10 years. Well, we've all lived in different countries and again. These policies have really impacted our families. And my story isn't unique. This happens throughout the Latino community all the time, and I do truly believe that this can change. If we go out there if we're civically active because more more more, the Latino vote is becoming more and more decisive, and we're seeing that now, with the changes that are happening at the local, state and federal level. Michelle. There are 100,000 new voters who have come out so far in this election as I mentioned, why do you think that is we are in a very decisive point in history politically, socially economically, But I would also say the pandemic has really hit people quite hard. We want to move forward and we want to make sure that everybody that we love Friends and family come out alive. So I would say that the pandemic is a very big one, and then also to see that change is possible when people go out and vote. I think that that definitely motivated so many people, and we're very happy about that. So people are seeing the change that they feel. That is Michelle's Who wanna with the Latino Community Fund. Thank you very much. Thank you so much little Mm hmm..

Nearly 30 arrested after clashes at Trump supporters rally in Washington DC
"With police arrests and at least four stabbings yesterday as supporters of President Trump held a Maga march here in Washington, D. C. The crowds were smaller. But the message stayed the same. A defiant rejection of Joe Biden as the next president, based on debunked accounts of election fraud. NPR's Hannah Allam was at the rally and she is here with us now. Good morning. High. By now, states have certified their election results. Courts have weighed in, and there's simply no evidence of significant of voter fraud. What's left for Trump supporters to say with these rallies well, they definitely want to keep up the pressure and keep alive the stop the steel narrative this baseless idea that the election was rigged, but it's also about much more than that. It's a networking and recruiting opportunity for the right right wing groups that always show up to events like this. And while some say they'll never accept Biden is president, the reality is setting in for others. Now that you know they're guy will indeed have to leave the White House. So several speakers were talking about looking ahead, organizing around some of their other pet issues. The Second Amendment rejecting a Corona virus vaccine, keeping quote unquote, the Socialists at bay. So it's just a rich soup of conspiracy and disinformation that doesn't go away when Trump leaves. And then, for a smaller French. There was a much more overtly violent tones in the last march, not only in the Chanting and the slogans but an actual violence and beatings. I witnessed least late last night after the rally, some really chilling scenes. And so yeah, the most militant right wing activists have said quite clearly now that they won't be settling for marching in the streets and that they're ready to fight. Even before the rally began, one extremist group made headlines. The leader of the proud boys, Enrica Terrio, visited the White House early Saturday. The proud boys, of course, were known as a violent gang. Some extremism trackers call them a hate group. Trump famously told them during a debate to stand back and stand by. So what? May I ask? Was the leader of the proud boys doing at the White House? Yeah, that's still a bit of a mystery. The White House has said Torrio was not specifically invited that he was part of a public tour. But that's just not exactly how it works for the general public. I saw Enrique Terrio at the rally and asked him directly about the visit. He told me he was their quote as just a guest. Hey, said he didn't see or meet with the president. He didn't get into specifics, though. I also asked what it meant for the proud boys to have that kind of access. And he said it shows they've come a long way as he put it. And he says they're using their platform to push for election reforms, for example of federal voting card Here's Terry Oh, it's not for the next four years. This is all you're going to see. When Biden preaches a message of unity, he asked him Listen to us, too. So the problem with stereo talking like he's moderate who's interested in Biden's message of unity is that you can't say that by day and then unleash remembers at night to roam the streets, harassing and beating up anyone you perceive as a leftist, and that's exactly what I and many others recorded the proud boys doing last night. One of the national security implications of the ideologies we saw swirling around yesterday at this big public rally Well for many years now, According to the FBI, the violent far right has been the deadliest and most active domestic terrorism threat. These ideologies and groups were mainly confined to the fringe. Now we see the leader of the proud boys getting a tour of the White House Later the same day I saw his members corner and beat two young black men. The member proud Boys were filmed ripping a black lives matter. Banner off a historic black church and you see a zoo. You noted their stabbings and arrests. So yeah, the mainstreaming of extremist groups is a hallmark of the trump era. And analysts say it's going to be a heavy lift for the Biden administration to reverse that and to prevent political violence from snowballing. That's NPR's Hannah Allam. Thank you very much. Thank you, Lulu.
