I am Matt Verteram alongside Gilberto Manzano, as is the case every single Wednesday. And Gilberto, look, first things first. Here's the good news. We still have our jobs. The bad news is some people with the Raiders do not. Now, maybe if you're a Raiders fan, maybe that's not bad news. Maybe that's great news. I don't know. I'm not I'm not part of Raider nation. I would imagine that the frustrations at an all time high. You have covered the Raiders in the past as a Team Beat guy. They are now looking at Antonio Pierce as their interim head coach because Josh McDaniels is gone. Dave Ziegler gone as the general manager. And so we'll see who takes over that post eventually. This is not exactly new to the Raiders. This has been a revolving door, whether it was Jack Del Rio at one point, a head coach, or it was John Gruden or it was Tony Soprano or it was, I mean, on and on and on and on, you know, Mike Mayock at GM. And you can just keep filling in the names. None of them lasted that long. And so now the Raiders mid -season firing, of course, because it's happened with Gruden under different circumstances. Gruden, essentially, they had to move off of immediately. McDaniels are moving off of because he just flat can't coach. What are your thoughts on the Raiders and what happened essentially at like midnight for most of the country, these two out the door? Yeah, you know, I'll start there. It was like, I think, 10 p .m. on the West Coast. So, you know, I was still up trying to enjoy the last couple hours of Halloween. And Matt, I was watching the original Friday the 13th. I was carving a pumpkin. I had like maybe, you know, 50, you know, chocolate bars. You know, I was stuffed and I saw this from Adam Schefter. And I'm like, oh, okay. I was a little surprised. Mark Davis actually did it 25 games into the hiring of Josh McDaniels, which I think we all could say, yeah, it was a bad hiring a year and a half ago. But shocking that Mark Davis actually did it before the second year was over. And this guy, what, a month ago told a fan at SoFi Stadium, smart enough, smart enough, you can't fire Josh McDaniels. And all of a sudden you're the one that got smart enough. OK, I don't know. I have a lot of emotions about that, you know, the way it played out. But, you know, I wanted to give you my reaction about how I caught this on Halloween Eve. And I'm sure people on the East Coast, you're two hours ahead of me, Matt. So I don't know if you caught it right away, but a lot of people were sleeping and they woke up. So you probably like at midnight, OK, what the heck happened here? But I'll start there. I was just shocked that Mark Davis did it, but it was a right call. I Yeah, figured you'd do it after the season. But it's funny because I was assigned the Monday night game. And so the Raiders are playing the Lions and I'm sitting there and I'm thinking, like, what can I write about this game? I mean, the Lions are just rolling up and down the field. But like I've written about the Lions. I've been in a few of their games this year in person. I was like, look, there's not I feel like we're not learning anything about the Lions. They're a good team. And the Raiders are sitting there in Grappola, throwing for like 40 yards through three quarters and just hideous football. Adams is frustrated. McDaniels is just looking at his face like he knows the end might be near. And I said to our editor, John Bloom, I said, you know. How about I just write a piece that I just say they should fire McDaniels and just bench Garoppolo and be done with this? And we then both kind of agreed like, well, that's all right. You know, it's early. We'll pass on it, whatever. And we ended up not writing anything about the game because the game is kind of just a non story. And I was joking with John this morning. My God, we should have wrote that piece would have been the most prescient people in the country. I didn't think it was going to happen the next day. But I mean, what a what a just absolute tire fire. Look, Josh McDaniels. Is a terrible head coach, and he showed that in Denver, like he not only was bad in Denver, he ran guys out the door. You know, Jay Cutler gone, Brandon Marshall gone. Josh McDaniels from afar has the syndrome of being the smartest guy in the room. And he's not the smartest guy in the room. Not saying he can't be a coordinator. Had plenty of success as a coordinator with Brady. And I don't know if he could be a coordinator without Tom Brady. He had plenty of success with him. Josh McDaniels was a disaster in Denver. He quit on the Colts before he even got started with the Colts. And now you look at this Raiders tenure. They never got any traction. They blew a million big leads last year. They went six and 11 after making the playoffs. I might add the year prior. Runs their car out of town, runs Darren Waller out of town. Hunter Renfro is barely playing. And now you're sitting here in the three and five, and they're not even as good as a three and five record would indicate. They have not played well all year long. I just think the Raiders going forward here. It now becomes a matter of. How do you fix the process of finding the right guys? Because Mark Davis has not found the right guys over and over and over like this starts with him. You could fire the coach in the GM all you want. Mark Davis has been a failure of an owner since he took over for the late great Al Davis, of course, his father. That's where this thing starts. Like, does he bring in an outside firm to do these hirings? Because I think that's where this has to go at this point. He has proven he cannot make these hirings with any kind of success rate. Yeah, man, you know, I'm concerned about, you know, Mark Davis just, you know, being kind of a you know, he cares about what the public perception is. OK, what are they saying out there? And that's why he went off on that fan. And so if I say I'm saying smart enough and I'm like, why do you care? Let the guy just say whatever he has to say. And then you're the one running the show here. You know, you're the one has to make the smart decision for the team. And yes, he did the right call. Let him go. Josh McDaniel's. But his two last hirings, he wanted a big name. He wanted a big name with John Gruden. You already went down that road. You give the guy a 10 year contract like, you know, I think you want to make you want to make a splash. You're going to Las Vegas like that didn't sit right with me. And obviously that that went sideways for different reasons. And the same thing with Josh McDaniel's. You're going to get headlines regardless. Like, yeah, you know what happened with the Colts briefly with the handshake. And then you bail out and then what happened in Denver? Like these are all red flags for the guy. And you still go because you want to try to copy the picture away. That's the biggest thing right there, man. You can't copy something and try to replicate it. And that's kind of the worst way to do it, too. So, you know, and I'll say this about Josh McDaniel's, because, you know, I guess my rule and I get why you want to write that piece. But and I get what you guys decide is a little too soon, because it did feel a little too soon. But it was a right situation because Josh McDaniel's background is offense. And that is a horrendous offense. I think he's put out there. And reason number two, man, it was his guys. He finally said, you know what, Derek Carr, different regime. Let me get Jimmy G and I don't know what the story is about Jimmy G's being the number one, two or three option. Who cares? You picked them. You brought them in with Dave Ziegler and all these Patriot guys came in. And you're still that bad. Josh Jacobs was a reigning champion a year ago, and he's rushing for like two point four yards per carrier, something pretty bad. So that's your background. And the other the third point, Matt, you always need a scapegoat. And the defense has been playing pretty well. Patrick Graham cannot take the fall when his defense is actually producing. It's your office, your guys. So see you later. Yeah, I mean. I'm to the point with the Raiders. I'm thirty five. I know you're essentially the same age as me. They've sucked my entire life, say, for like three or four years with Rich Cannon. OK, and that's not that sounds like I'm just like taking some cheap shot out. My point is you got to do something differently. I mean, it's some juncture. You know, the Raiders have this weird pride about like who they are. That was great in the 70s and 80s. You there don't should be no pride in who you are now. You've been a losing friend. You've you've been the Lions for 30 years. You've been the Browns. That's who you've been. I mean, everybody talks about the Raiders like this is some unbelievable gold standard of a franchise. Yeah, it wasn't the 70s and 80s. It's not anymore. It hasn't been for a long time. I mean, they have not won a playoff game since the twenty two season. Two thousand and two. You're talking over 20 years now. And most of those years have been non -competitive. And you're now looking at this thing going, all right, look, you need a quarterback, you need a coach, you need a GM. That is that is a lot in a division where you're looking up at Patrick Mahomes and in a conference where you're looking up at not only Mahomes, but at Burrow and Allen and Lawrence and potentially the ascension of Tua and all these other guys. Lamar, right? And all these guys. They have miles to go, which leads me to this. I don't know how you feel about this. We haven't talked about this for a show. At the end of this season, I would trade Devante Adams and I would trade Max Crosby for as much draft capital as I could possibly get, because by the time they're really good, Adams isn't going to be there anymore. And by the time they're really good, I don't know what you're getting out of Max Crosby. Like those guys both fetch first rounders plus right now, maybe even multiple first rounders. Like if I'm them and I'm the GM there, man, I know it's going to be a rough couple of years. I get it. I would trade both those guys for the highest possible value I could get. Yeah. And you know, the concerning part about Mark Davis being so quick with the firing. Like, does he want like a quick fix? Like you think this roster is ready to win now? Yeah, you got Devante, Max Crosby and Josh Jacobs, three guys that are pretty good at the position, but you need a full teardown. Go get the draft picks like you mentioned, Matt. And, you know, and actually do a hiring where you're not trying to copy the old silver and black way or copy the Patriot way. Like find your own identity. Mark Davis, like, like it's been many years now, over a decade, your dad hasn't been around and you know, you can't copy things that you can't go with for the big name. You don't want to try to keep up with your, your, your owner friends and say, look at who I got here. And look how much money I'm getting on Las Vegas. Like the other bad thing too, like seeing the, the, the allegiance state of being taken over by the opposing fans. Like you're, you're the Raiders. You have fans all over your Raider nation. So even that part is really bad for where Mark Davis is doing. So like you mentioned, you know, hire somebody from the outside to help you out because you haven't been doing it right. Credit for owning your mistake and eating the money from the Gruden contract and now with Josh McDaniels, but enough with the copying, the quick fix, like I'm with you a hundred percent tear down this roster. Like, like yesterday, what are the Broncos doing? Keeping all these players, like go get the draft picks and do a full rebuild. So a lot of heads crashing moves. It's weird. Like the dovetail on the Bronx, that's actually a perfect segue into this, this next topic we're going to have here last. I'll say on the Raiders by the way, and all these things enough with the Patriot way, you know what the Patriot way was? It was Belichick and Brady. That's the Patriot way. So unless you're, you're turning back time, 20 years, it's not going to work. The Broncos though, you know, we want to talk about the NFL trade deadline, which of course was on Tuesday, winners and losers go. You did a great piece, man. I'm breaking that all down. I encourage people to check that out. I agree with you. Just about everything you wrote. It was excellent. Um, I sat there and thought the same thing you just said about Denver. What is the point of keeping all these guys like, do they think because they beat the chiefs in that game, that they're a contending team now? I mean, I don't know if, let me save everybody to suspense and drama. I sat through every snap of that football game. If you told me the chiefs had money on Denver, I'd be like, that makes sense. I could see that that was the worst game I've seen them play in the Mahomes era. And I'm not trying to gain away from Denver, but I'm going to be honest. That was not because Denver was some juggernaut in that football game. The Broncos went an average of 33 yards per touchdown drive.
A highlight from The Latest Attack from Elizabeth Warren's Anti-Crypto Army
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, October 19th, and today we are talking about the latest salvo of Elizabeth Warren's anti -crypto army. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends. Today is blissfully not a Sam Bankman free trial day, and instead we're going to be talking about the other big topic that has lurked for the last couple of weeks, which is of course crypto's role in terrorism financing. Now as was completely expected, Senator Elizabeth Warren has used the Warren Israel to renew her calls for tighter anti -money laundering controls to be applied to the crypto industry. On Tuesday, Warren wrote letters to both the U .S. Treasury and the White House calling for officials to quote, take strong action to thoroughly address crypto illicit finance risks before it can be used to finance another tragedy. Alongside Warren, over 100 lawmakers co -signed the letter. These signatories were largely Democrats from both the House and the Senate, and the letter said, as Congress considers legislative proposals designated to mitigate crypto money laundering and illicit finance risks, we urge you to swiftly and categorically act to meaningfully curtail illicit crypto activity and protect our national security and that of our allies. The letter leaned heavily on Wall Street Journal reporting from last week, which had framed Hamas as quote, one of the most sophisticated crypto users in the terror finance domain. Also unsurprisingly, Warren's letter did not mention that Hamas had announced the suspension of their use of Bitcoin to receive donations in April, citing concerns that the ability to easily trace Bitcoin transactions would put supporters at risk. It did however acknowledge that authorities have successfully seized dozens of crypto accounts owned by terrorist groups over the past year. The letter set out a series of questions, quote, regarding Treasury's plans to address the serious national security threats posed by the use of cryptocurrency to finance terrorism. The questions largely related to steps currently being taken and asking for the administration's estimates of the size of the problem. Wall Street Journal reporting had estimated that over 130 million in crypto had been raised by Hamas and the affiliated terrorist group Palestine Islamic Jihad since August 2021. Now it is notable that support for this letter was much broader than Warren had previously gathered for her crypto anti -money laundering efforts. For example, crypto -friendly Democrats Josh Gottheimer and Jake Auchincloss were included in the ranks of co -signatories. Republican Roger Marshall, who has provided support across the aisle for Warren's anti -money laundering bill, also signed on to the letter. And as an indication of support within senior Democrat circles, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown also signed. Brown will of course be a significant decision maker on whether the Warren bill progresses through the committee stage, and he tweeted yesterday, Hamas's terrorism is fueled by cryptocurrency. We need to crack down on illicit crypto and stop terrorists from moving money around, evading sanctions, and funding their acts of evil. We must curb this emerging threat and protect our national security. Now alongside the letter, Warren penned an op -ed in, once again, the Wall Street Journal with Roger Marshall as a co -author. The article laid out what has been reported about the use of crypto and terrorist financing to date. It claimed that, quote, Crypto has become a crucial pipeline for financing terrorist organizations, and researchers agree that the publicly reported numbers are likely a small percentage of the actual total. This revenue stream demonstrates the dangerous gaps in our oversight of international money flows. Terrorists, rogue nations, drug traffickers, and other criminals are using cryptocurrency to endanger our allies and U .S. national security. It's past time to apply the same anti -money laundering rules to crypto that already apply to banks, brokers, check cashers, and even precious metal dealers before these loopholes allow terrorists to finance more attacks. The lawmakers asserted that, quote, Decentralized finance companies should be subject to the same anti -money laundering rules as banks. Now that is essentially the proposal in the Warren -Marshall bill. The DeFi protocol should have KYC requirements placed on them in line with the rules applied to banks and large financial institutions. Industry figures have called the proposal entirely unworkable for small DeFi startups. And of course, it's generally believed that the bill would be more likely to result in U .S. users being banned from accessing DeFi rather than leading to ubiquitous on -chain KYC. Today's episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still. Too slow. Only on for certain hours. Overly designed for some types of people, but not for others. Crypto, at its best, represents progress. It asks the question, what if? It invites people in instead of leaving them out. It's on 24 -7, 365, and moves at the speed of real life. Not everyone believes it. We've got our fair share of detractors. But that's the way it always is when you're building something new. Kraken is a crypto company that has been through the highs and lows of the industry, facing forwards towards progress throughout. And now they're inviting us to see what crypto can be.

As you might imagine, the industry had a lot of commentary on this letter and the surrounding issues. G. Kim, the head of policy at the Crypto Council for Innovation, said, In the U .S., we have clear AML -CFT rules and requirements for U .S. exchanges. From there, Kim pushed back on Warren's bill, noting that the issue is largely an international one which isn't addressed by domestic laws. He said that the crypto industry wants to work with lawmakers to, quote, stamp out illicit activity and that, quote, the industry can be a helpful partner. Then there was Norbert Michel, who wrote a piece for the Cato Institute this week called A Crackdown on Crypto Won't Stop Hamas. A key quote from the piece was, In a perfect world, it would be out of bounds to use incidents of horrific violence against innocent people to revive an otherwise unrelated political agenda. Nonetheless, it seems that Senator Elizabeth Warren and her colleagues are going to use the recent violence in Israel to gather support for the Digital Asset Anti -Money Laundering Act, a bill Warren's been hawking for months. Now, one really important thing to note here is that this bill is not focused on exchanges that have been caught processing Hamas transactions. It's about a seemingly unrelated issue of forcing KYC onto DeFi protocols. Former CFTC commissioner and now head of policy at A16Z Crypto Brian Quinten said, No serious policy maker would take a view on crypto and illicit finance without addressing the arguments of this piece. But maybe serious policy isn't the goal of some in D .C. when it comes to crypto. Alexander Grieve, who does government affairs at Paradigm, wrote, Crypto opponents will continue to tie crypto to illicit finance, despite that being a small subset of a larger industry and an order of magnitude difference relative to illicit finance in opaque tradfi in order to fit their narrative. Regardless of these opponents' motivations, however, crypto needs to play our part in pushing out any bad actors. So it is up to us to come up with policy solutions and practical technical ones where possible. Until we do, we're going to keep seeing these kinds of letters. Austin Campbell responded, The irony is that cracking down forces more of this offshore, which is where the problems are. Hamas has a nexus to offshore exchanges in Tether, not onshore. Just ban things is the tech -illiterate answer. Blockchain Association wrote a long thread, basically saying that of course the crypto industry does not support terrorist activity, but that Warren's letter was just wrong. They write, Here are the facts. Claim, crypto financing is responsible for the horrific actions of Hamas. Fact, crypto networks are transparent and for this reason Hamas ceased to accept Bitcoin earlier this year, citing the success of law enforcement efforts to track down donors. Only a small fraction of Hamas's funding has come from crypto. And what portion of that small amount was directly used to fund the attacks is unclear. Claim, Hamas evaded U .S. sanctions by raising millions of dollars in crypto. Fact, Hamas and non -U .S. entities have no obligation to follow U .S. sanctions laws. And they go on, but you get the gist. Now, one thing to note is that if you think it's just crypto folks who are making some of these arguments, assistant law professor at Willamette, Rohan Gray, who's no big fan of crypto but is a big fan of privacy, wrote, It's bad that we haven't built such a perfectly surveilled financial system that oppressed groups cannot fund themselves is not the progressive angle on this issue in my opinion. This isn't a Hamas -specific issue, it's an architectural issue. In the 1950s, it was the NAACP getting donations and the racist governor of Alabama trying to use that process as a weak point to demand donor lists and harass its supporters. In a separate tweet, Gray said, There are significant civil liberties costs and broader social risks of repressing dissent and marginalized communities by building a financial system that allows centralized actors to surveil and censor all transactions. We've been trying to make this point to the Warren wing for a while. Unfortunately, most of them are too busy hating on crypto to realize they've taken the wrong side of the financial privacy debate. I don't have all that much to add here, other than the things that people have already said. It is clearly on the face of it preposterous to say that these attacks happened because Hamas had access to money via crypto. It's just not true. It's not true in terms of a percentage of money that Hamas had from crypto in general, and it's certainly not true that they have some magical insight that those dollars were used to fund this attack. Using that sort of rhetoric is clear political opportunism, but it's very unlikely that a lot of people are going to call it out given the sensitivity of these issues, which is exactly why folks like Elizabeth Warren use these opportunities. Frankly, this is exactly the type of interaction that shows why people get so frustrated with American politics, but I digress. Now, speaking of sanctions, on Wednesday, the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control once again expanded the sanctions list in response to illicit crypto usage. While Hamas is already designated as a terrorist group, this update added 10 new members, operatives and financial facilitators operating in Gaza. Crypto wallet addresses were identified, including one Bitcoin address owned by a Gaza -based exchange known as Buy Cash Money and Money Transfer Company. The business, along with its owner and primary operator, were alleged to, quote, be linked to Hamas and were also added to the sanctions list. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement, Now, blockchain analytics firm Elliptic reported on Wednesday that several designated terrorist groups had used that particular exchange. They claimed that over $25 million in Bitcoin and Tether had been moved through it since 2015. At the same time, as some pointed out, one of the sanctioned wallets has around $16 worth of value in it and made its last transfer 18 months ago, bringing up the question of just how much this is for show versus an actual effective policy. Speaking of just for show, on Wednesday, blockchain analytics firm Chainalysis published a blog post titled, Correcting the Record, Inaccurate Methodologies for Estimating Cryptocurrency's Role in Terrorism Financing. Chainalysis is, of course, one of the premier firms for providing statistics on illicit funding flows through crypto networks, as well as in assisting authorities to disrupt, freeze, and seize assets. Their blog post stated that, quote, Chainalysis noted that terrorism financing is, quote, They recognized that, quote, And yet, in spite of this, they point out that, quote, Chainalysis walked through the newly sanctioned exchange by cash as a case study. They dug into specific transactions flowing to and from the exchange and concluded that it functioned more like a street -level money changer rather than being exclusively used for terrorist financing. According to Chainalysis, 82 million had flowed through the recently sanctioned address since February. Of those flows, Chainalysis found that only 450 ,000 worth of crypto was transferred to other addresses affiliated with terrorist financing. They noted that rather than the full amount which has been cited in recent reporting, Neeraj Agarwal from Coincenter summed it up this way, It looks like those estimates assume all flows through service providers that process illicit transactions are illicit. That's probably not the case. To simplify, if there's a rogue exchange that does a billion dollars in volume and they process one $1 ,000 Hamas transaction, it shouldn't be counted as $1 billion to Hamas. Neeraj also poured some cold water on a statistic that's been floating around that suggests that the UN estimates that cryptocurrencies account for 20 % of terrorist financing. Neeraj said, Basically, a senior legal official at the UN Counterterrorism Committee, Svetlana Marinovay, said in an interview from last year that a few years ago, 5 % of terror attacks were believed to be financed using crypto and she added that, In other words, this thing that is reported as fact is just a made -up source. Now, whether or not there is dubious information going into all of these things, it doesn't matter in how it's impacting crypto's place in Washington. A new research report from Berenberg Capital Markets claims that the reported use of crypto to fund Hamas may have set back crypto lobbying efforts in Washington. The report stated that efforts to pass crypto legislation could be quote, Complicated by recent media reports that put a spotlight on Hamas's use of crypto as a means of fundraising in recent years. And that quote, So friends, there you have it. If that's the latest, what we will be keeping an eye on is the extent to which this picks up particular momentum or whether this was the type of thing that was a one -time flag signaling for these 100 signatories who just wanted to be associated with the anti -terrorism team, which is how this letter tried to portray itself. To the extent that this does pick up and this bill becomes more of a going concern, I will of course let you guys know here. For now, I appreciate you listening as always. And of course, one more big thanks to today's sponsor Kraken. Go to kraken .com slash the breakdown to see what crypto can be. Till next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
A highlight from UK Government to Require Exams to Buy Bitcoin | EP 849
"Yo, welcome to another episode of Simply Bitcoin Live, we are your number one source for the Bitcoin revolution, we will be your guide through the separation of money and state. Speaking of the separation of money and state, crazy news coming out of the United Kingdom. You literally cannot make this up if you tried. By January 6th, every UK citizen will have to take a test to buy Bitcoin. It is a six -page quiz that will not be easy and is designed to give up. If you pass, there will be a 48 -hour cooling period before you can actually buy. That was a tweet from Ray Youssef, and he was the original founder of Paxful, which I think he stepped away from. But that is absolutely crazy. And again, it really, reminds of me the book The Sovereign Individual, where they were making the case that governments would try to do everything in their power to basically stop people from opting out of their money. And then this is also something happening in the United States. We have an update for you guys as well. Elizabeth Warren is using the, how do I say this, in a politically correct way. Elizabeth Warren is using the conflict in the Middle East in order to gather support for her bipartisan bill with Senator Marshall, which would be, according to Pierre Richard, a de facto ban on Bitcoin mining within the United States. And also, it would essentially force wallet providers, software wallet providers, hardware wallet manufacturers. Basically, they would have to KYC, because they don't want people to use, quote unquote, use their words unhosted wallets, meaning wallets that are outside of their control. So, we say it in the beginning of the show, this is the separation of money and state after all. And those governments are just not going to go gently into that good night. And again, when I say governments, it's not that it's going to make the government go away, you know, because I think that's a lot of the narrative, a lot of the rhetoric that they used. It's just that governments, the relationship between the citizen, the individual and the state is going to change once you separate money from state, right? Right now, the way that it's structured is we live in a misaligned incentive political structure. Why? Because politicians, when they get elected, they're really incentivized to hold on to that money printer. They're really incentivized to get as close as humanly possible to that money printer. That's the money spigot, right? But you have to understand something about government, right? Government is supposed to be by the people for the people. And I think the ability that Fiat has given governments is that they no longer have to do good by their constituents in order to get funding. What they really have to do is just protect that moat, right? So it's really become a government by the government for the government. If and when we separate money from state, I truly believe as a Bitcoiner that we will be successful in doing so because I think Bitcoin's incentives are stronger than any coercion they might throw at us. I think that the whole dynamic changes. And I think El Salvador is a great example of that. I don't think it's a coincidence that in the society where they fix the base layer, they made Bitcoin legal tender. For some reason, that politician who's in office is actually doing the things that he said he was going to do if he were elected. And why is that? Because without their ability to print money, the only way for governments to raise money is through direct taxation. And if you want to tax your populace more money, right, you have to actually do good by your constituents, right? So it's just interesting this phenomenon. And I don't think we've ever lived in a world in human history where the money was separated from the state, from the sovereign, right? This is a, you know, the debasement of currency is something that has literally, it's been around since the Roman times. The Romans did the same exact thing, like over the decades, over, you know, hundreds of years of Roman history when it became from Roman Republic to the Roman Empire, to the division of the Roman Empire, to the Western Roman Empire, to the Eastern Roman Empire. You know what they did? They debased the currency. Now, it's not like printing money like it is today, but they had a currency called the Donaris. And you could literally see over time that the percentage of silver in the Donaris declined over time. And with that declined, you had the moral decay and the eventual collapse of the Roman Empire, right? So are we living through those times? I mean, you start to see the moral decay in society. You start to see the corruption right up in your grill, in your face. So I truly believe we're living through this pivotal moment in history. Now, what is different than every other moment in history is that this time we have a non -state currency. And because of Bitcoin's true decentralization, only Bitcoin has that. Governments are essentially, it's a forcing function. They're forced to compete with Bitcoin. They're forced to say, OK, this is why you should use our currency. And here's the thing. I don't think they'll be able to win that because governments are always going to want to do two things. They're always going to want to debase their currencies because that's how they pay for the deficit spending. That's how they pay for things they can't afford. And they're always going to want to control and censor the money flows. And those are two things that Bitcoin does not. Right. There's 21 million. There will only ever be 21 million. And Bitcoin is censorship resistant. So I think Bitcoin's incentives are superior to state money. And again, once again, I'm going to mention this book because every Bitcoiner should read this book. This is a theory that was predicted back in the 90s in the book, The Sovereign Individual. Crazy, crazy times. Buckle in. Take your Bitcoin into self -custody. No more delay. Let's bring up my legendary co -host. Has a smile on his face once again. My brother, my co -host, the one, the only, he has dated three central bankers, Agustin Carson, Christine Lagarde and Janet Yellen, the legendary optimist. Wait, did we drop that meme yesterday? I don't think we dropped that. We haven't dropped that meme. I don't know. I don't know if we should. Maybe we should just show it on the show. OK, I'll download it. I'll put it in a meme review. Anyways, anyways, I just wanted to mention what, three minutes in and we're already talking about the Roman Empire, men talking about the Roman Empire again. Couldn't make up.

A highlight from ELIZABETH WARREN HAMAS CRYPTO FUD! CAROLINE ELLISON & SBF TRIED TO CRASH BITCOIN!
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five -star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, corrupt Elizabeth Warren is at it again with her FUD around crypto. Now there was a report highlighting that Hamas, due to of course the conflict that's happening in the Middle East, was using crypto at one point. But of course, it's just a small amount and they actually stopped using crypto due to blockchain being so transparent, the folks who were donating to them were getting tracked. So Elizabeth Warren, of course, is not going to give you the context, she's not going to give you the details, she's just going to say, see, see, these terrorists were using crypto. But of course, terrorists use any form of money, whether it be cryptocurrency, fiat currency, and obviously legacy wise, they've used fiat currency. So should we ban fiat currency? Of course not, right? So here's what she tweeted out, it's alarming and should be a wake up call for lawmakers and regulators that digital wallets connected to Hamas receive millions of dollars in cryptocurrencies. Crypto is the not so secret financial weapon funding terrorist organizations like Hamas, Chinese fentanyl networks, and North Korea's missile program. There is a bipartisan coalition of senators pushing to crack down on crypto finance crimes, and it's time to act with urgency to ensure law enforcement has the resources and authority to protect innocent people. Now folks, it's not the medium of exchange, right? It is the bad actors, you have to stop the bad actors. Once again, terrorists and bad actors can use gold, they can use fiat currency, any other form of transfer of value in addition to crypto. And obviously she's getting called out big time. And there's a lot of supporting evidence highlighting that she's blatantly trying to scapegoat crypto. Here's what Ryan Selkis of Missouri had to say, Liz Warren, the most corrupt person in The tragedy in Israel to scapegoat crypto for its role in funding Hamas. Her president, talking about Biden, sent $360 million to Hamas plus $6 billion to Iran. But Hamas stopped using crypto in April. And the stats show that folks here, Sam Lyman, who's director of public policy at Riot blockchain or Riot platforms, he said critical context is missing from the Wall Street Journal piece on Hamas and crypto. And this is what Elizabeth Warren was citing. In April, 2023 Hamas warned its donors to stop sending Bitcoin. Why? Because the transparent nature of the blockchain had Western intelligence following their transaction like bloodhounds, hence the sudden drop on the chart. There's a reason money laundering via Bitcoin has been called a classically dumb crime. It shines a spotlight on everyone involved. Remember, this is as the usual suspects ramp up their anti -crypto rhetoric in the weeks to come. So here you can see the data, and this is from Elliptic, and this was cited in Reuters as well as the Wall Street Journal showing that they drop off because they started getting tracked. You know, their crypto donors were getting tracked and the wallets were being tracked. So blockchain and crypto is not a great way to launder money or do anything nefarious because it's all in the blockchain, and you have a lot of data companies like Chainalysis which have shown that it's easy to track these things. Of course, Elizabeth Warren is not saying it dropped off or highlighting the share of the use of funds. Like, they were clearly getting money from the Biden administration and much more, obviously disproportionately on the fiat side, and crypto was just a small part. So it's interesting, and Ron Hammond of the Blockchain Association weighed in on some of these things. He said, ironically, the reason Hamas stopped taking crypto donations was because an increase in hostile activity against donors. Still some in Congress, highlighting Elizabeth Warren, think crypto is solely for facilitating illicit activity. This could lead to more calling for bills like Elizabeth Warren's slash Marshall's bill. So she's going to put up a fight, folks, so this is why we have to keep fighting. We have to expose the lies. We have to spread the facts, right? And we have to highlight that, look, bad actors are going to use any medium of exchange. You have to stop the bad actors, not the medium of exchange or the technology or the money, right? It's pretty ridiculous when you think about it, but she obviously has an anti -crypto agenda, and she's going to keep going, and Gary Gensler is in her back pocket, and he's been weaponized by her, so we got to keep fighting, folks. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. Uphold is a great platform that I've been using since 2018. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. They're also running a great promotion this month that if you spend or trade at least 20 bucks, you'd be eligible to win 10 ,000 XRP. They also have 37 fiat currencies, and they also have precious metals that you can trade. So this is a unique platform. If you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. Now, folks, we got an update here about the Bitcoin Spot ETF, specifically Cathie Wood's ARK Invest. So Eric Balcanis and the folks at Bloomberg reported that ARK has just filed an updated version of its Bitcoin Spot ETF prospectus. The SEC emailed users a few weeks ago with comments slash questions about their S1 that they wanted to address. So it's very possible ARK has answered all that in this filing, and they've been looking through it throughout the day. James Safford, who I've had on the podcast, also weighed in on this and said, adding details stating that the ETF's Bitcoin will be held on individual wallets and not commingled. This all signals to us that ARK slash 21 shares and likely others are talking with the SEC about things they want cleared up in these docs. Good sign for future approval, in my opinion. So, folks, I think we can all agree that a Bitcoin Spot ETF or multiple Bitcoin Spot ETFs are going to be approved within the next year, hopefully within the next six months. And, you know, with Paul Tudor Jones going on CNBC yesterday saying he's bullish on Bitcoin and much more, I think the Wall Street crowd is getting ready for the approval and they're turning bullish that Bitcoin having is next year. So we're going to see a lot of bullishness around this and people prepping for the launch. So certainly good news here that the SEC and these folks are going back and forth. Now, Caroline Ellison testified today again against Sam Beckman Fried in court. And here were some of the main takeaways from today's hearing. So Caroline Ellison of FTX admits that Sam bribed Chinese officials with 100 million to unfreeze their assets, purposely tried to scam Saudi investors in the final days of FTX, intentionally tried to seek regulators on Binance to destroy his competition. And the folks here said it's only lunchtime. Now, this was shared throughout the day, but more and more is coming out and it's just looking like Sam is going to get buried. There's so many layers to the story and some of which we didn't know. And Caroline, she's out for blood because Sam Beckman Fried tried to throw her under the bus by trying to release her diary and much more. Now, CZ weighed in on the news here that FTX tried to get regulators to crack down on Binance. And he's kind of laughing at it. And he shared a quote, a lesson from Jack Ma. He said, forget about your competitors, focus on your customers. So very interesting statements here from CZ.

I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country, he's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is an excellent guest, Dr. Taylor Marshall, who is the most popular Catholic YouTuber and has a lot to say about what is happening with the Pope. Dr. Marshall, thank you for taking the time. I always want to make sure I get these facts right because sometimes there could be translation issues for what the Pope says. So let's just, outside of all the media fervor, all the rancor, what exactly was the Pope's position and or statement yesterday when it came to blessing same -sex civil unions? Well, there's been a growing debate and it's really reached, I mean, basically you have five cardinals of the Catholic Church who have written five requests asking the Pope to clarify his position on five key issues. One of those issues is the blessing of same -sex unions by clergy, by priests. Pope Francis has already said that you cannot have gay matrimony, marriage in the Church, because that's between a man and a woman. So theologians have said, okay, well, if we can't have a gay marriage in the Church, what if we have a same -sex blessing in the Church? And this is a big debate coming into a synod of synodality here in October. And the Pope has been very careful about it, but it seems very clear by whom he's appointed and the people he's listening to that he is starting to pave the way for there to be these same blessings, -sex not same -sex marriages, and of course this is creating a huge scandal amongst the over 1 billion Catholics on planet earth. So I'm not Catholic, but I have great respect for Catholics, and something that I've always admired about the Catholic Church, especially in recent years, is some of the strongest social conservatives are Catholic, and there is this kind of promise of dogma that doesn't change, right, that we're going to protect the family no matter how much the culture tries to make us convinced we're going to protect life, we're not going to go along with the trans mafia, and honestly some of the most articulate people in public life talking about the family are yourself, Matt Walsh, Michael Knowles, right, all practicing faithful Catholics. So this is an issue that I see on multiple levels. Let's take a step back, Dr. Marshall. Remind us of some of the other troubling statements, not the internet, you know, misinterpretations that this pope has made that is starting to pave the way to question and weaken Catholic dogma.
A highlight from 118: Part 2: Marc Cameron - From Deputy US Marshal to Arliss Cutter to Tom Clancy
"Okay, so the next time I asked for a ride, I didn't get one. No, that's when you look at the other people and say, I meant to do that. Yeah, I meant to do that. Exactly. Well, yeah, that's what you do when your lights are on and they look at you, you just speed through the light and go on to some fake call somewhere, right? Drive like hell. Hey, I want to start progressing into talking about your books, but I want to talk about your time on the Marshalls. When you look back, what's one of the most impactful cases or impactful investigations or things that you did? Because when we had Billy Sarukas on, we talked about the DC Sniper. You guys do some just fantastic work. You've got some great technology. We talked earlier, Blair Dean, when he used to run the TOG, the tactical operations group, some of the stuff you guys do with phones, I mean, just amazing stuff. When you look back on it, what's one or two things that just really stick out to you and you think back and you go, I'm glad. Maybe it wasn't the biggest case, but you look at it and you go, that one made a difference. I really liked that one. Have you got one or two like that? Yeah, sure. It's interesting and I'm actually, in the book I'm working on now, I'm making a comparison. One of the things I really liked about the Marshall Service is you could start your day working with all kinds of tech, especially in Alaska and North Idaho, working with all kinds of technical equipment. Back when I was starting, it was pagers and things like that. That's kind of a cool thing. In the Clancy books, I could talk about pager technology and all that that we don't really use now, so it's not sensitive anymore. But working with phones and computers and all kinds of stuff, and then two hours later, be tracking somebody's boots on the ground through bear country up here and really have to do it the old way. And so, I really like that. I kind of gravitated towards rural work because yeah, we still use cell phone technology. We still use all that stuff, even in rural areas, as far as tracking people and even social media stuff, but we really have to rely on knowing how to physically man track and that sort of thing. So early on in my career, I really enjoyed the high tech, using pagers, using cell phones when they came. I sat next to a guy in the academy who is just a brilliant, brilliant deputy. Even back in 1991, he had a stack of papers about cell phone technology and he realized back then, this is the future of tracking fugitives. And so, he worked with Blair and those guys and I don't like to name their names because he's still kind of half in the business, but he's just a brilliant guy and he helps me quite a bit with the Clancy's as well. So, I really enjoyed those sorts of things and the cases were many, but when I got to North Idaho, we had a case. Now again, you guys mentioned Weaver and Ruby Ridge and all that. So that's the zeitgeist up there, the feeling and the kind of the anti -fed and the animosity and stuff like that. So we went into that and then we had a guy that was wanted on a... He was just wanted on a federal parole warrant. So back then, we had a lot more parole warrants and then, of course, parole got abolished, but we still had a few people wanted on parole. Now it's all supervised release. And we like parole warrants because there was no court. You just arrested the guy and took him to prison. When you violated parole, you just went back to jail. There was no, you know, pass and go or anything. You just went to prison, not even the county jail, the nearest, because they were property of the Bureau of Prisons as far as what the courts saw. So we were looking for this guy, his name was Farron Loveless. And as we started investigating more, we learned that he was a suspect in kidnapping a Jewish couple across the state line into Spokane. He held them hostage in their own home for three days, two days maybe, but I think a couple of nights. And he had like fed their dogs and snuck up to their house and got in and held them hostage. And he had been in prison, then he jumped parole and then come over here. And he had a hit list of a bunch of feds he wanted to kill and not just feds. So we're learning all this little stuff on him that kind of blossomed out of this parole warrant. And we worked it for a number of months, but we started to learn that he was just really a bad guy. But as we got an informant involved and some other people, we learned that he was hiding up on a mountain. He had married a woman, he was in his late 30s, and he had married an older woman in her 60s that had a son and a grandson. And she had Social Security and stored food and kind of back before prepping was a thing, she was a prepper. And so he had basically gotten all her food and he had his...because he was really living a life on the run, completely disconnected. He had no phone, no nothing. So he had moved this teenage boy and this 60 -year -old woman up into the mountains of North Idaho and they built their encampment up there. And they had booby traps, they had fish hooks hanging from monofilament. You might recognize this if you've read the book there. He had split pieces of wood with shotgun shells up through the middle of them and buried all around for like homemade land mines and various booby traps around. But now imagine in that situation when I write a note to headquarters that says, hey, we got this guy and a woman and a teenage boy up on a mountain in North Idaho, we'd like to go get him. They said, not in a million years are you going to go up and have a gunfight on a mountain in North Idaho with a teenage boy and a woman and a fugitive. And so we had to come up with a lot of different plans and it ended up that my partner who had been working on it with me, this was back after the first World Trade Center bombings, and he was part of our special operations group. So we were protecting the judges back in New York. So he had to rotate out every few weeks and go back and help with the protective details. And so he was out of town, so it was me and the FBI where they had helped work on the case because we all had to work together. And there was an FBI agent named Tom Norris, who's a Medal of Honor recipient, I should say. Tommy Norris, he's the only FBI agent I ever met with a glass eye. He's the guy that saved Bat -21. So, I mean, just a phenomenal dude and he mentored my oldest son. He's just a very unassuming, FBI let him get away with what he wanted to because he was a Medal of Honor recipient and really just a class act. So he was helping on it. So we came up with a plan to lure Farron off the mountain. And originally, he had a bicycle and we knew he would come down off this mountain. There was quite a hike up there, take his bicycle and maybe come into town once in a while for supplies. And so I came up with a plan to put a flashbang next to the bike and we'd hide and we'd lure him down to the bicycle and then get him there. Headquarters said, nope, no flashbangs on a mountain. So we came up with another plan and Farron was super prejudiced, super white supremacist, super prejudiced. So we said, we sent our informant back up and this is all not sensitive now because it's all come out in court. But we sent the informant back up and he said, hey, there's a Hispanic gun dealer in town that wants to buy some guns, but he's got two white girls that he's pimping out in Priest River, Idaho and you might want to come down and sell him some guns and take care cleaning of up the race a little bit. And Farron actually said, I'm going to come down and do that. I'm going to come down and get, I'm going to sell him some guns in air quotes and take care of this Hispanic guy that's pimping out white girls. And I mean, that's just the way his brain worked. And so we set up the time and we had Boundary County deputy sheriffs and Bonner County deputy sheriffs and Tom Norris and I. And the plan was when Farron came riding by on his bicycle, there's a long, long bridge outside Priest River, Idaho that goes over Priest Lake. And we were going to pinch him in the middle of the bridge because we knew he was going to be armed. He had a hit list and he had a violent past. And so Tommy was behind him and I was coming up to meet him. And the idea was when he got on the bridge, we'd get him pinched between our two cars and arrest him so he didn't, nobody else was in danger. We would close off the bridge. Well, as Tommy got in, Tom Norris got in behind him, he saw that he had a pistol out the, like in his hip pocket. He had a GP 100 pistol in his hip pocket and a little backpack on and a little, like a 10 -22 rifle sawed off sticking out the back of his backpack. And I mean, he's like the Wicked Witch of the West, you know, riding on his bicycle towards town to meet this guy. And Tommy, I don't know what happened, whether he touched the gun or what, but Tom pulled it beside him and just bumped him off the road. So he went ahead and endowed and went into the ditch. And so I sped up there and this all happened very fast. So he went into the ditch before he got onto the bridge. And so I was right there and there was a boundary county deputy right behind me in a marked unit. And so Tommy bailed out of his car. I bailed out of his car because of the way Tommy had to come around.

The bill passed by a vote of 88 to 9. It now goes to the desk of President Biden to be officially signed. He reportedly is on standby to sign it. The government was set to shut down at 1201 a .m. Sunday if a bill was not approved. The bill includes natural disaster aid and a measure to keep the FAA operational, but it doesn't provide additional funds for Ukraine or border security. It means the government will stay funded at current levels through November 17th. Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith is pushing for a gag order against former President Trump. Jim Forbes has the latest. The order would limit what Trump could say publicly about the ongoing criminal cases against him. Smith initially asked for a limited gag order earlier this month, but updated the request on Friday, citing Trump's threats against witnesses. Last week, Trump claimed General Mark Milley had committed treason and should be, quote, executed. In the gag order request, Smith argued, quote, no other criminal defendant would be permitted to issue public statements insinuating that a known witness should be executed, and neither should Trump.

In a statement Friday, Harris called her one of the greatest public servants that California and our nation has ever known. She added that Feinstein broke barriers, inspired generations of women to run for office, and improved the lives of Americans through her vision, courage, and leadership. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is laying out potential consequences of a government shutdown. At a news conference Friday, Blinken said it would hurt U .S. efforts to advance national security. The shutdown shouldn't happen, but if it does, we will take every possible step to make sure that at the very least, we're carrying out our functions to protect national security. While he didn't comment on the specifics of legislative arrangements, he did urge Congress to get a deal done. On Friday, the House failed to pass a Republican -led short -term funding bill that included deep cuts and border provisions. Over 20 million people are under a flood watch in the Northeast. New York Governor Kathy Hochul has declared a state of emergency in several areas due to extreme rainfall and flooding. New York subway lines were shut down Friday, and several people had to be rescued from their cars when streets were closed.
A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.

He's joining Fox's NFL kickoff, which is at 11 a .m. Eastern every Sunday little pregame action Julian Edelman Julian, how's it going? Going well, how are you doing? I'm doing well. I'm doing very well cuz football is here. So it was back Thank God is fully back. I Mean, I wish I wish the trends Kelsey wasn't hurt because I feel like that takes a little bit away from the opening game But it is what it is If you look at it though over the last However, many years the Kansas City Chiefs have been on this run. They've had relatively pretty decent help Throughout their whole thing. I mean they left they lost the left tackle in the Super Bowl That's why they lost against, you know, Brady they couldn't protect Patrick Mahomes but it's it's getting to that time in their Era it where gets hard, you know being a guy that's been on one of those teams a dynasty. They're not there quite yet but uh You know, they're well on their way if they could stay healthy and you would know better than anyone about dynasty So when would you say they're there? How many would they have to win before you say they're a dynasty everyone knows it's three Okay, I don't know what's going on. Everyone keeps on talking like oh This is you you into no, it doesn't matter if you get to the Super Bowl We went to eight straight AFC championships or something like that. Like you got to win three to get to be in Cowboys previous Patriots Niners Steelers It's not two. It's not two So tell me I want to get into your Fox gig and transitioning to meeting that since we're on it It's a good topic because I'm just curious because one of the things I'm looking at is someone who's scouting Over -unders to bet and and you know who's gonna win the AFC and stuff like that The I Motivation shouldn't say the motivation. I mean, I think the motivation is there even if you win But is it difficult or how difficult is it after winning two like they've won? It's very difficult To get geared up every Sunday, you know people don't realize How hard it is once you go out win a Super Bowl Okay, now they have two that when you win that first one you become a target everyone circles you on the schedule You win another one now everyone circling now now Divisions and conferences are designing their teams to beat you. So it gets harder and harder and as an individual player You know Your motivation you have to pull what what's motivating you because natural human instinct you're like You know, we got this we're good and then you know something happens you have injuries here an injury They're a player doesn't sign back because no two teams are the same. It's a new team every year. So it's very hard mentally To keep it going, you know And you have and they have a leader in Patrick Mahomes that can do that We had Tom Brady Tom Brady was always always on he was like he was always motivated So that gives you hope for the Kansas City Chiefs because they have such a great player and Patrick Mahomes who's their leader You know their best player is is their quarterback is their leader and the way he is is huge. Do you think? the intensity to beat the Chiefs to throne the Chiefs is Similar to what you guys experience and I ask you from this standpoint and I hope you don't take offense to this But I feel like I feel like the Chiefs are not hated in any way I'd feel like no one dislikes Mahomes No one dislikes Andy Reid you guys and I think it was mainly because of your success But there were people who didn't like Tom for whatever reason there was the ridiculousness with the flake eight the stupidest thing ever people didn't like Belichick, maybe You guys I don't think we're like Completely beloved whereas KC seems like I don't know who maybe people are sick of Travis Kelsey a little bit Like our teams you think is amped up to beat the Chiefs as they were you guys I Think the games changed the player has changed Just as an overall, I mean we look at games nowadays you got guys over here You know dapping up helping guys back back when we were playing the Jets when I first got in the league Bart Scott was mother -effing Billy O 'Brien on the sideline guys were fighting before, you know, it's just it's kind of changed And it could be for good or could be for bad. That's for weather for everyone else to determine But and also, you know, the Kansas City Chiefs that the Patriots were on it for 20 years Okay, like when I got there they already had three Super Bowls and they were on a little drought, you know But they were still winning, you know, they went 7 16 and oh they you know 14 win seasons they were still putting out big winning seasons for a long a longer time and You know the Chiefs just haven't been there I'm so I'm sure the Chiefs keep on doing well that people are gonna start hating them too, you know, yeah. Yeah The I want to get into some other stuff about the Patriots and and Belichick and Brady and but let's talk about you going to Fox you did inside the NFL. I enjoyed you on there I wrote that a couple times for SI. Now. You're gonna be on the Fox NFL kickoff show. It's remarkable I don't know if you've seen it Maybe you just know it off the top of your head because you friends with all these people but it is remarkable how every patriot is in media now is on TV, you know, you've got the McCordy's Gronk is part of the Fox family. Everyone knows about the Brady situation McGinnis the TV Bruschi It's like if you're on you were part of our Patriot team good love winners. Yeah people love winners Yeah, and they hate them so, you know you get a little bit of both They're either gonna love your hate you but they're gonna watch you It's like you had no choice but to go into TV basically after after all it's it's I don't know it's uh, You know when you play for an organization like New England and You've had the success that we had over the years that we played, you know It opens up a lot of doors and it's plain and simple. That's that's really what it is The the sacrifice and the efforts that we put into our career helped us after our career and a lot of guys you know, they have that hard work mentality that still want to stay in the game, but may not want to be coaches and And that's what media is, you know, that's what I feel. You know, I get my football fix by Going into a pre -production meeting and I haven't done it with Mike Vick or Charles Woodson or Chris and Thomas or Peter Shrager But you get your football locker room kind of vibe when you do those like when I was on inside the NFL I'm sitting there talking with Phil Simms Patrick, uh, you know, Brandon Marshall Michael Irving, Ray Lewis, James Brown and you have these These meetings where you just get to sit and talk football It's before you go on the lights are shining but you sit and you're talking stories You're breaking football down with people that play football So, I think that's a huge probably reason about it and you know, it's not you know We're used to putting in these crazy hours 14 -hour days Seven days a week don't get this year family and media, you know, like you got to do your homework You got to you got to watch all the games, but you know, we can still have a life outside of it, you know These guys are going coach. I mean people always ask me. Why aren't you in coaching and I go You know, I did my time Like I put my my 12 13 14 hour days in and when I would leave work I would see coaches families in the parking lot Seeing the coaches before they would go to bed because they still had another three hours. I ain't doing that Yeah, you know and then if you go somewhere else where it's not like that Then I'm mentally all messed up because well, there's some people that are doing it, you know So it's just I like I'm happy or I'm mad. I'm excited to go out and entertain and talk my knowledge When you were playing and you're playing days towards the end of your career Did you think you would get into TV or did you not think about it while you were playing? I Didn't necessarily think I'd become an analyst and do what I'm doing right now I always enjoyed creating content You know whether it was our YouTube videos our Instagram videos and all the content we build on J around je11 You know that was booming with with the Patriot nation that would always support, you know I always I found a niche in that and and I enjoyed that process of creating content going in and sitting in a you know in a editing room and and Filming up all this stuff and thinking it's gonna be terrible and then cutting it down and then you know having all your other team Because there's a team of people, you know That put put the work in to to get this good content out and I enjoyed it So I didn't know it was gonna be to the extent of what I'm doing right now but I knew you know, I was comfortable in front of a camera and you know, I know I faced for radio, but Thank God I won a lot of games Had it and just tell me were were there other networks like in the running to get your services Was it just Fox like I'd end up at Fox why Fox? Tell me a little bit about joining I want to say any other names there were, you know There was another network that was involved and I sat down and I thought Fox would be perfect You know, I got a couple teammates there with Gronk Brady You know, I'm really excited to get to hang out with you know Charles Woodson and in talk football with Mike Vick and Chris Thompson Peter Schrager and you know Fox is like a If you know the story behind Fox, I mean they were created as This little small sport network with John Madden.
Burlington Middle School Students Plan Counterprotest to Pride Event
"Point for radical leftists who want to sexualize your kids because they're crazy people. There is nothing controversial about telling me, do not talk to my kids about sex. It's none of your freaking business. You understand, weirdo? Stop talking to my kids about sex, you freaky deaky doo nut jobs on the left. Stop. It's disgusting. It's none of your freaking business. The left is obsessed with it because it's populated by weirdos and tactical leftists who use sex as a confusion tool for kids to divorce them from their parents. That's a fact. That's why they're doing this. Well, this school district was having none of it. They wanted pronouns and pride stickers on everyone. The kids just said, nah, we're not doing that. Folks, I'm telling you, the rebellion's begun and you don't need a ticket to join. Take a listen to this. Plays of intolerance and homophobia are unacceptable. This type of intolerant rhetoric starts in the home. Parents angry at Town Hall over tolerance at Marshall Simon's Middle School. Kids were asked to wear rainbow clothes in honor of Pride Spirit Day, but some organized a counter -protest wearing red, white and blue or black. The principal sharing a statement to families that Pride posters were ripped down, stickers ripped up. Some students say are my pronouns. And so just to be clear, because the local news report again is trying to paint you the freedom fighters here, the liberty advocates as the state government. I don't want your sticker. I'll put it on anyway. I'm gonna rip it up. You gave it to me. I didn't ask you mayor, give me this. I'm not wearing your pride sticker. You give it to me. It's going in the garbage and do they it anyway. And yet when you rip
A highlight from Engineering the human pysche
"In this episode I speak to Jim Marshall about engineering the human psyche. Jim discusses his discovery of a natural phenomena called Septemics which is a practical philosophical system that analyzes human phenomena. Jim's big claim is that his system could be used to analyze and solve any type of issue or difficulty that a person may have regardless of the area it pertains to. This is an interesting conversation exploring whether it's really possible to solve any human behavior problem just by utilizing the skills in his book. Listen up and tell me what you think. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organization. And today our guest is Jim Marshall. How are you doing Jim? Fine, thank you. How are you? I am really good. Jim, what makes you smile in the morning? Well, I guess just, you know, another day in my wonderful life. Brilliant. I think sometimes we over complicate things when it's the simple things that bring the most joy. Jim, tell us a little bit about you. Well, I'm the discoverer of hitherto unknown natural phenomena which greatly aid in the understanding of people. From which I invented a revolutionary practical philosophical system called Septemics and published it in the book Septemic Hierarchies of Human Phenomena. Wow, that's some claim. Tell us a bit more about that. Well, 27, almost 28 years of direct observation has shown that this book will dramatically improve the life of anyone who takes advantage of it. Septemics is a philosophical science based on the fact that many phenomena related to human beings occur in a sequence of seven levels. Literally the word Septemics means of or pertaining to seven. Septemics comprises a collection of scales or sequences, each of which breaks down various human phenomena into a hierarchy of seven steps. There are 35 such scales, each of which is unique, and together they span the spectrum of human experience. By which I mean any problem, situation, dilemma that arises in the life of any person can successfully be analysed by one or more of these scales, usually more than one. Okay, so when you say those scales, what do you mean exactly? Well, I discovered in my work as a human potential engineer that there are these naturally existing scales. They are like the Fibonacci sequence or the three laws of motion. They exist separate from us, and when you know them, it makes it tremendously easier to understand yourself and others.

A highlight from Gen. Michael Flynn (Encore Continued)
"Minimum opening deposit to earn the annual percentage yield is $500 for the 8 -month CD special and $2 ,500 for the 14 -month CD special. Member FDIC. Folks, welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacypminvestments .com. That's legacypminvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. It's a nutritious smoothie of creamy, fresh yogurt, vanilla, protein powder, and a mushy banana. For your mind, drink it all down. It's nummy. I want vanilla. I want, I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Folks, welcome back. This is hour two. We continue the conversation with General Flynn. General Flynn, you were just saying some big stuff. And we're going to have to, you said, let's assume victory. Now again, we can't assume victory, but assuming victory as we war game this through here. Let's say we get enough citizens to guard the vote. We're on to the tricks. We understand that the Democrats now win elections by stealing elections. It is ugly. It's hard to face that in America we've come to this place. But if you don't face it, you're a fool. So we face it. We deal with it. We do what needs to be done. And assuming that Trump were to get into office, the idea would be, you were just saying this, we have to have major, utterly unprecedented in our lifetime government reform. We have seen the horror. It's like you buy a house and now you know the termites are eating this beam. And this is happening and that's happening. We need to rip this stuff out. The deep state, as we now know because of what happened to you, has taken over the government that belongs to we the people. In order to get our government back in the most fundamental sense, how do we get rid of those forces in the deep state? They are at war with freedom. They're at war with we the people that are militarized politically against what Trump represents. Because it's not Trump. It's what he represents. It is we the people. It is the founders' vision. They're at war with that. They're in bed with the globalist elites who don't give a tinker's damn about America on the founders' vision. So what would we need to do and how would we do it? What they're at war with is our Constitution. These people want to get rid of our Constitution. A couple of things. There are people in government who just need to be told, thank you for your service. When you go into your office tomorrow, I want you to clean your desk out and turn your badge in and go home and go find a job someplace else. Thank them. Because there's a lot of secretaries. There's a lot of bureaucrats at the lower levels who are just sort of following along and doing the thing. But there are entire departments that we need to be, in some cases, shut down. Like Department of Education. Goodbye. Goodbye to the Department of Education. Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter is the one that created the Department of Education. It's a complete disaster. That would be one of the first places. I thought actually it was Richard Nixon who did that. You might be right. But it was a naive time in American politics. That's one of those places you close the door on. The second thing is, and all these things that I'm talking about are simultaneous. And these are not that difficult to do. The other couple of places are the federal component, so Washington, D .C. component of the Department of Justice. I the know complete makeup of that organization. It doesn't mean that we shut down the attorneys generals around the country. But the way the structure inside of Washington, D .C., there are some parts of that organization that just need to be shut down and go away. The Department of Defense. The Department of Defense, inside the Department of Defense, the numbers are staggering. I won't get into all the numbers. But the mission of the Department of Defense is to prepare for, fight, and win our nation's wars. And the key word there is win. Not participate in these endless wars that these rhinos and these, you know, there's neo -liberals and there's neo -cons. On both sides, they love these wars. And that's what Eisenhower warned about when he talked about the military industrial complex. So those are three big departments. And there are some other components of departments. We also have agencies, activities, and commissions, as well as the intelligence community. Because when I talk about the FBI as an example, the FBI is a component of the Department of Justice. It's a subordinate organization. I mean, the FBI is another organization that could be completely shut down. It is not in our Constitution. We have 900 ,000 law enforcement professionals around this country. We still have them in the federal level. I mean, Secret Service, the Marshall Service. But we have states and local and city police forces that do wonderful work. And they absolutely can't stand having the FBI show up and say, you know, we're the FBI and we're in charge. So the FBI is another component within the Department of Justice, particularly in Washington, D .C., that needs to be completely shut down. I mean, that's a big thing. That's a big thing. Before you go on, I just want to say, ladies and gentlemen, that is a big thing that will be hard to do. But I have been calling on Twitter for over a year. Defund the FBI. Don't defund the police. Defund the FBI. They are a rogue organization. They're out of control. They were in many ways bad news under Hoover, who was a power monger, unelected. But they did a lot of good work. A lot of the guys, you know, the main guys who were doing the work did good work. But we have seen what has become of the FBI, and we need to take radical action. I mean, the FBI, to be simplistic, the FBI used to have really good cops. Now they've become known as thugs, and that's not a good place to be. So those are a couple of bins within the federal government. And I think that the other big piece is the intel community, right, the intel community, which I have a lot of knowledge of. And inside of the intel community, we have got to break this marble up, okay, this big marble up. And the main, what they used to call agates, right, the agates, the big, big agate marbles. The big one is the CIA. And the CIA is culturally, is so corrupt, and intellectually, frankly, it's not that good. They have not been right about anything that we have been fighting in for probably the last 30 years. And in fact, many cases, they have caused some of these wars, these endless wars that we were involved in. And it really does go back to a guy like JFK, who rose up. And JFK, I was listening to some videos of him this morning. And I'm thinking to myself, God, this man would be a diehard Republican today, be a diehard conservative today, thinking what we now know the CIA has done. And this is principally the CIA, because there's other elements of our intel agencies that do fine work, but they've also grown too big. So again, what we're going to need, and frankly, it doesn't really require Congress to say, well, we're not going to give you this money or that money. No, the executive authority of the President of the United States, with executive power granted to him or her by the Constitution of the United States of America, gives the full authority for the President of the United States to make any decisions that they want about the executive branch of the United States government. So all these things that I'm talking about are all doable. What it's going to take is it's going to take courage, it's going to take, you know what, I mean, it's going to take a bold group of people, like the founders were, early on in an administration, and you just start to say, again, you start to close the doors, you literally lock the doors, and you tell people, thank you for your service. We're going to give you a 30 -day stipend or a 60 -day stipend. I mean, we can do these things. But this is why—we have a final segment coming up with General Flynn right after the break, but I want to say, General Flynn, this is why they needed to take you out and they needed to take out Trump, because they knew that it was game over. You know where the bodies are buried. You know what needs to be done. They will not let this happen. They will do everything and anything. They will steal elections. They will lie. They have done these things. They will do these things worse, because the level of desperation on their part, they see when you say stuff like this, they know it is absolutely anything goes. They will do anything, including put a bullet in the head of anybody they don't like, as they did with JFK. We are in a war. It's ultimately a spiritual war, folks. We need to pray for this nation. Stand strong. We'll be right back. Final segment with General Flynn.
"marshall" Discussed on The Photographer's Journey
"Keep shooting shooting shooting shooting You don't have to narrow it down to a certain genre or anything like that but keep shooting and pay attention to what you are shooting in. What i mean.

All right what excites you right now. What excites me right now. Is the possibilities. I feel like it almost in this may be because i'm such a naive overly optimistic person but i just feel a renaissance coming of people. Really appreciating life appreciating people. And what really matters and i think this past couple of years this past year and a half has just humbled us and i think humanized us and i really am excited to see the genuine joy that people have just coming together dancing being in person going out to brunch like just doing things that human beings used to do and and getting on and i think it's gonna be something that sticks with this generation forever but i think it's also gonna make us a a group of people who all realize the value of the little things that we all took for granted 'cause 'cause we could be stuck inside behind a computer screen for the rest of our lives for all we now So yeah. I think there's just so much joy and excitement. That's going to be coming out of a this next year when people come to your instagram page. They see this.

"I mean a check if we went out and we performed at a venue and so that meant like cameron my partner calling venue setting up show renting our own stage renting our own sound on cameron at the door checking in tickets also running the stop. Backstage cameron also taking meet-and-greet photos. Like waas lugging our own step and repeat banner in a suitcase. Every single city we went to it was it was just a a grind and it was the most rewarding thing but also the most taxing thing and i think it became very clear that it wasn't going to sustain us like we can only hop on a plane every single weekend for so long before. It's we've got any so. Yeah so we also had a really hard time because we i mean the music. It's been a battle with the music industry this whole time. It's like you feel as you're promoting all of these people's songs and they're treating you like a cockroach who is like somehow abusing their music or misusing it and so it was really difficult and we had a really just bad year right before right before twenty twenty and we were like. It's just getting exhausting at this point and we were about to quit using popular music. Because it just i was so tired of looking over my shoulder and like wondering for the next person to come at me when i literally was not making money. Like when we were touring we were paying for the stage in the sound and the people to run the show like the profit margin was bad. It was so bad but we love doing it but we just got really tired like for four years into it and wants twenty. Twenty came around. We could tour and it was like okay. So this is that. Like where don's that this is not meant to be and that's when you to memberships opened up and it was just the craziest timing and youtube is like. Hey you can have a membership program on our platform and so then we got together and we're like oh weight if we're not touring let's just do these like sixty minute classes once a week for our youtube members and that way they can still have all of our regular constant for free but if they want like this full length sixty minute workout. They can do with us every week. And we can actually get paid for it and so it was this hit that i don't think would have happened without the pandemic and.

Am you get into a meeting where it's like completely off the table. Now and that's it. I mean if that's so funny you say that because that just happened to me i i get it because it sucks ertz but i think that what's really special. I've come back to. And i'm sure that you've come back to it as well because of the way that you talk about. This is like holy shit. I had a seat at that table. Yeah yeah that's that is exactly it like will. I had that conversation. They know my name. They care about like it's it's they care about me. Sometimes i'd like to think that they care about me. I may like they know they know that you exist though is great like they cared enough to have that call. You know it's just like it's really cool. You have to keep reminding yourselves those little victories. Because that's you have to hold onto. It's not about the end result because there are too many variables in that. And if you let yourself get defeated by those moments than you're never gonna find the next door to open like you have to be willing to stand up and be like okay. Dust nice shoulders off. I wanted to go through that door more than anything else in this world. I thought that was the golden door. But here's other door. That's not golden but it's blue. I'm gonna see what through that one and then you find out that something even more amazing is awaiting. I mean. i've had. That moment happened so many times in my career. Where am i and then a few months later. Amazing things happen and so it's just about holding onto your passion and of while you're doing it and i think that's what helps people really have longevity in this industry is because if you're here for the quick check you'll be out really fast. Yeah you'll be out really soon. 'cause i i mean for me. Money didn't come for a very long time. Like when when i state money. I mean like paying rent buying a haircut like it was not easy. It was struggle struggle struggle for so long. Just doing what i love. And that's that's what i ate was sick was passion like is what really got me through and got my friends do like my friends gave up a lot as well to kind of be on this journey and believe in what this is all about.

It was megan. Trainers me too. And i remember i uploaded that to facebook and then overnight it had one hundred thousand views on facebook and i was like y and then the next day it had like five hundred thousand and then a million and then ten million and then megan trainers reach weeding at megan. Trainers following me A clothing company in australia. Cotton on reaching out to me asking me to do a world tour with them and and all of these things start happening at once. And i'm like well. This is just the craziest moment. I'm getting so many. E mails from media companies. Being like do you wanna do reality. Show us and that was. That was the craziest moment. Just the metoo video. Because i think virology is. I mean what's even viral anymore. Like someone can go viral and get a billion views something go viral and get up. You know ten thousand views like it's all based on your own perception of what that is but for me that was just the biggest most immediate growth. I guess in a video and the most attention i got an at one time and so that's when i got really excited and thought that okay. This is something really really cool. Like we can brochure. Make money off this at some point or somehow but then that is also started might decline and what started probably one of the sats times for me in his career because every video was chasing that success in every time i out of the deal that didn't get as many of us or didn't the attention i was like. You're not as good anymore. That was your peak. You're not enough and it was just this. Negative self topic have happening. And until i broke out ever trying to do that again like i was just miserable. Trying to recreate. I mean miserable. I wasn't miserable. I still have always had a great job. But it was just the most soul-sucking time to try to constantly compete yourself or keep trying to live up to a standard. That is just not realistic and not attain of. I didn't make that video with all of those things in my head. I made the video and it just happened to connect a lot of people and that was not intentional. It was just by chance and so the only way that was going to happen again is by having that same authentic reaction.

"And who fill you up and can grow with you with a reach like yours. You probably get asked a lot of questions of ballot coming out and for someone who may be struggling with doing so in their home. I mean again. They're a big difference for you being forced out being found out versus coming out on your own choice but those people who come into your em's and are like help. I don't know today it's really. It's really difficult because it is a unique. But i think that the most important thing is that everyone is living there truth and is able to be confident in who they are and when you tell people who don't agree or who you're scared to tell that is their own journey so they don't accept you for being you if they try to change you. That is their baggage. That's not that doesn't mean you could have told them any differently. That doesn't mean you did something wrong. That doesn't mean you should change you. Are that means that they have something. They need to work within themselves. So have the courage and bravery to tell the truth but know that someone not receiving that well has no bearing on you and that is the hardest thing for people to accept. Whoever is there for you after you are living as your most authentic self those the people who are supposed to be around you so it's kind of a necessary spring cleaning unnecessary awakening and it's uncomfortable but just know that all that that is going to be happening after is other people working through their own Not you love that piece of advice and again as you said family is what happens as a result as a result of that so you mentioned taking those dance cardio classes in college.

I would say about a year to really integrate my partner with the family and for everything to be okay. A lot of kids. Don't have that kids get kicked out will never speak to their family again. Like my family loved me enough to learn but it was not something. I think anyone was prepared to have to even start making about some really grateful that i still have the relationship with my family that i do but it'll always be that. It's something that i had to help. Other people go through it. It's really it'd be really nice to grow up and just loved and accepted from the beginning. And that's what i think really exciting for gen z and like the new generations that are going to have just a lot more understanding and acceptance because of the generations. Who didn't have that. Yeah can you even imagine what you would have done if she hadn't found your phone. No i mean i really. I don't know if i ever would have had the courage to have that conversation. Mike i hate confrontation. I loathe it. I would rather you can just put me in a barrel. Enroll me down the hill. And i'll just would never have to talk to you about it again like i. I think that's really difficult for a lot of people in so i never. That's why i hate when people are forced out of the closet or people get upset at other others for not coming out or or making this statement but it really is such a personal in terrifying journey and so. I'm grateful that i was forced out. And i was actually seven my friends too. I had friends when i was like fifteen. They sat me down and they said it was like a group of four of them. One being the guy that i ended up dating as my first boyfriend and they were like kayla. We love you. You are a homosexual. we know it. You know you are gay. And i was like oh my god stop. No i am not and then i just had him on. I could kind of start inching my way out in. I'm so grateful they did that. Because it allowed me to live my truth but again. Everyone's journey is unique so for someone else that would might be terrifying and awful for them to be forced out or found out so it is also individual but in my experience. I'm glad that i had my friends there. I who kind of knew about my sexuality for i would say almost a year before my family did and it really gave me that feeling of having my chosen family. Even if my family didn't accept it my friends love me so much and so that made it so much easier. And that's why. I'm a big proponent of chosen family and family doesn't have to be blood it's the people who love you..

"I wasn't a popular one. I didn't like the way my body looked. I didn't really feel like i fit in. But when i was on stage that was my escape. And that's where i felt like i could. I could be myself and be super confident in have the time on my life and so it was really exciting. Just to get to explore that. And have that escape as a kid especially. Because i don't know what i would have done not having not like going to school and having a bad time and then coming home and having nothing to like make me like full or feel fulfilled so i i think it would have been really scary. Had i not had you know the performing arts so when you start to get into the performing arts where do you see this going at the time. Did you have like an aspiration to be an actor. You like want to move to new york on broadway. Like what did you wanted to. I wanted to be a disney channel star. I've thought that by the time. I was fourteen i was gonna be caleb. Colorado hannah montana would be canceled. I would be the next superstar in. I really thought that i that was just might trajectory. I mean. I don't think that i had a full plan in my mind especially not for business but i knew that in some way like i had to perform because i knew i wasn't met or doing anything else that i couldn't really put all of my passion into and so i thought i was going to go to. La get picked up by casting agent. I remember going like when i got to high school. I got to start going out to l. a. once a year for auditions and i got told. No no no no no. We don't need you. you're not in. It wasn't all bad but it was never i never got picked. I was never the one that got signed for anything. I never got past the first round of the audition and so it was really soul-crushing for me to realize that the thing that i thought that was really good at or in this world no one else felt the same way and so it took me kind of just accepting that. That wasn't my path and kind of moving on from that. And i i like when i got to college. I had thought closed. I was like i turned eighteen. I've got the crease is set in mice. I got some smile lines. come in. i'm not going to be a child actor anymore. And i really thought that it was all over because i had listened to all of these people who had told me what i was supposed to do with my wife and i kept trying to put myself in a box for this person and this person instead of just creating my own and i think getting all of that rejection.

Um, Remember this the center of the controversy with her in April. The New York Post reports he'd purchased four homes to the tune of $3.2 million. And remember what we were making fun of. For this. This is the Black Lives matter co founder who's living in all white neighborhoods. What does that tell you? What does that, say? One. She's probably one of the ones with D not sampling anything. It kind of looked like No, let's go and move into a white neighborhood. I mean, that's the funniest part of this see that, But that's that's the thing. This is what this is What it tells you. It's all an agenda. It's all a scheme, and that's all black lives matters. I'm sorry. I don't know whose support I do not support organization. Anybody that says I'm a practicing Marxist. I am definitely against many things you stand for. And you know you have parents of some of the Um kids or men that were, you know, shot by a cop, and they died, And they're saying, where's black Lives matter What is black, They're coming out against black lives matter. Now it's all a scam. It's all the version division and that is all black lives matter is that's what therefore, Yeah, and they prey upon The naive good intentions of people that think Yeah, There's obviously been some horrific cases of police abuse and you know, racial profiling and so forth that you know it's not the rule, but it's the exception. And they think, man, this this thinks we need to have. Ah, you know, weed out the cancer in our system. Let me donate. Let me do this. And not realizing that it was all a ruse. It was a big scam. It was it was a what do you call a pyramid scheme is really what itwas and you know, they prey upon people who don't know any better think they're doing something. You know, it's like when people when there was proof that BLM donations were being filtered directly to the Democratic Party, and Joe Biden, Kamila Harris his campaign last year, there was direct proof. And people like Oh, no, that's a right wing conspiracy that they're using this money for good. No, they're not. The leaders taken money and buy a million dollar homes and white neighborhoods Joe Biden's funding his campaign with it. It's It's really it's really was Aziz screwed up is a whole sounds. What's funny is that she's trying to say now her decision to step down Um, the exit. It's been planned for more than a year, and she just goes well, It's just the time is right. It's just so happens to be when her finances they're called into question. She's this has been it's been planned for, like a year. Whatever No one's buying that she's trying to claim that she goes. You know, with regard to all of the you know the financial question here. The four homes the 3.2 minutes because those air right wing attacks once again blaming down the right. Those right wing attacks. Conspiracy they're trying to discredit my character is what she said it You did a good job of doing that on your own? Yeah. You didn't need any help, Sister That is for sure, Man. Hey, remember that video that went viral of the Idaho deputy Who was mocking LeBron James. You remember that video dude's got? He got fired man he got I saw he was Tucker last night fired for what? Well, for that. There's what they're saying is, it's not necessarily the content. Of what was in the video. It was that he was doing that. I think they're trying to claim on company time. So they're saying that it wasn't paraphrasing punished for the content of his speech. Excuse me. He's being punished. He got fired because He kept failing to, uh, adhere to a certain set of standards that were put before him of things he was supposed to do, and he refused to do it and they had enough and they fired him. Was it regarding kind of walking this back as far as the standards? I very cryptic with the way they left it. They didn't say I had to directly do with that video, but it's almost like they're making him sound like he was in subordinate to the sheriff. And come on. We know what this really is. This is a This is the this is Ah, Cancel quote made it an example of making the example I'm trying to. You know what I was even told my wife because I was watching the You know they played the clip of it this morning and we're watching it. And I was telling Jenny I go. You look look at this. First of all, you canceled culture, But then I'm saying Aziz, we watch this and we see the stuff that he was doing. It was funny. And then the very thing that I think of as I'm watching. This is not one thing happened to LeBron James and what he tweeted out. There's not one thing that's happened to him. None of his sponsors Are there not getting any blowback? Nothing from? I don't even know whatever team he plays for right now. Lakers. Nothing another. I can't keep track of where he's at, you know, but anyway, I Nothing's happened to him and not know like these not been held accountable at all for what he put out there, which was All but an actual death threat to an officer. Correct. I mean, we're what is wrong with this world. Ah, lot down. Now it's upset. It's it's worship the criminal and Demon demonized the hero. That's where it's like that ridiculous opinion piece in the dis dishrag today, um, that blaming Makayla Brian for her own murder. Ignores government failure like it's everybody else's fault, but hers the person trying to stab somebody that she got shot. You know what I mean? I mean, that's just the other behind O'Brien thing. Yeah, it just I don't I don't. I don't know, Demitrius say it just It's like I think it's if you can make all morals relative. Maybe. Then there is no wrong anymore. If like you can kind of normalize bad behavior Well, do you talk? I mean, I remember distinctly what d said, which was You know, when all of this start your your take, was you go society has failed. Her somewhat. Society has failed kids and in general run general because I think one we as parents, our parents, and then it came and got to us and we all want to give our kids something. You know things that we didn't have, and we went too far right? I think that's a part of it. But it's thescore system that took over. It's the education system. It's the system that teaches them what to think. And not how to think that creates a robot..
