Because here's the Russians aren't doing this because they have questions about the vaccines or they want because they're not mandatory in these countries.

"Welcome back to America first one on one with Andrew clavin. We have a pronouncement. He's back. I don't know why, but he's back the man who was the first black president of the United States is now an expert on culture and he has something to say about those rascally Republicans cut 7 play cuts. We don't have time. You might want to go to beep. Wasting on these phony trumped up culture wars. This fake outrage, the right wing media's pedals to juice their ratings. And the fact that he's willing to go along with it instead of talking about serious problems that actually affect serious people, that's a shame. Fake culture wars. That's Obama. Yesterday, the day before campaigning for one of the sleaziest objectively empirically one of the sleaziest Democrat politicians, Terry mccaul, sorry Terry mcauliffe. And he's saying it's invented. There is no culture war at all and I guess Donald Trump wasn't canceled on Twitter either. Let me give an example of how little a culture war there is. Yesterday, Wednesday, The Washington Post lead editorial cartoon is a delightful group of mothers sitting in somebody's living room with a grill a barbecue grill in the middle and they're burning books and The Washington Post calls this the mom's for liberty book club. Which side of the political aisle is kidding. It's banning books. On Amazon. And silencing speech, we're using the corporate, the power of corporations guided by the government, which is almost the definition of fascism. You know, he is so good. He's such a talented politician, Barack Obama. And the problem with him is that all of his philosophy is wrong. And so none of his policies work, so he became president at a time when the economy had crashed, and historically an economy that takes a nosedive will bounce up just as high just as fast. He sat on that economy with his stupid ObamaCare and his stupid policies. He was handed a piece in the Middle East. And he let loose ISIS in a war that took over a territory the sizable Ohio with terrorism and this wickedness that his exist in the Middle East. He failed at everything. And what did he do to take people's mind off his failure? Is he started a culture

It's earlier in the Old Testament. The bottom line is that when they discovered Hamilton's code, I think this was in shushan or susa, which they also discovered. Like this is, you know, the archeologists keep discovering things. They go, oh my goodness, we've discovered the city of shushan or susa, which is where the book of Esther takes place. Nobody knew did it really exist. Boom, they discover it. And while they're excavating it, this is in a 150 years ago, they discovered this steel or Stela, I never know how to pronounce it. With what we now call hammurabi's code. And it's a detailed law listing of laws, very detailed. And it lists, for example, the price of a slave at 20 shekels. And that and other things, which I won't go into because we don't have time. But we now have something from, you know, many, many centuries before Christ that corroborates something that never could have been corroborated before, which is intense little specifics of when Joseph is sold into slavery. In the early pages of genesis, how much money was paid for him? How many shekels? And you can trace it through the early pages of genesis. So here again, you have out of the sands of the desert of the Middle East. You're getting archeological historical corroboration of tiny details from the Bible,

Very stern looking michael oren. But i'm upset mr ambassador.

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords

"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe.

Why Would a US President Do What Joe Biden Did in Afghanistan?

"Have to get serious because what's going on in the middle east so many people and i'm included are dramatically puzzled like we've never been quite this puzzled at what just happened. I mean i've been on the record. That i don't believe biden was elected and i think this stuff is gonna come out but that's a side issue. Let's say he was elected. Let's say he is the president. Why would a. Us president do what he did in afghanistan. It is utterly unfathomable to me in other words as upset as i am about it. I'm even more mystified. Because i feel like we all must be missing something. Nobody could be this incompetent. There's gotta be more to the story. At least that's my theory will. Unfortunately my book enemies and allies didn't come out in time. And i say that because as you read this book you'll see is i described the transition from president trump to president biden or. I'll just say president biden. There there he is. He's making these days vice president biden. That's probably more accurate. If you don't mind. So so. But i i actually profile him towards the end of the book because i knew everybody would be asking. What should we expect. It's going to be a sharp contrast from trump to biden's but what do we know about by right. Well there are some good things. He's the most pro israel person in the entire democratic party and using eight which is saying almost nothing. No no look. Let's be fair israel. Bipartisan point of unity. For seventy five years it's becoming divided now because you've got the squad Now trying to strip a billion dollars worth of missile defense funding For israel From the latest budget but dome the iron dome system which is which is crazy because it protects palestinians israeli arab muslim and israeli jews and christians but the point is there are many pro israel people in the democrat party and biden is among them but even by some of the closest friends say that his judgment on on middle east issues is is horrific and that he's been wrong on almost every foreign policy issue in the middle east off the last forty

I read in the morning is the financial times the second at the telegraph. Then the times of israel. Then i get to the american papers. They only started earlier right so they're hours ahead of us for the news cycles. A little bit more developed this story. I got yesterday afternoon from a friend. Sent this to me. So i cannot claim credit for having spotted it. It showed up last night. I put it online. It went everywhere. And i've reposted it because it just makes you realize heroes. We have lots of heroes in the united states especially in the military who and and the police force and the firefighters. We celebrate them on september eleventh. Then we forget them too. Often we celebrate them on memorial weekend and on veterans day. And then forget them. But i'll tell ya every day in the world they're heroes. The headline of this doesn't of afghan women rescued from kabul in the first ever the first ever israeli emirati aid mission. Remember a year ago. Donald trump presided over the abraham accords. That the united arab emirates and israel signed bringing a warm peace in the middle east followed soon by bahrain and other countries. The story reaches really aid. Workers and the united arab emirates have completed a daring rescue mission that saw dozens of sportswomen female rights activists and a singer at risk of taliban reprisal spirited to safety inaba the nail biting evacuation use local contacts together forty-one afghans from various locations in kabul. And then bust them through taliban checkpoints and over the northern border into tajekistan before flying to the united arab emirates the israeli emirati mission which happened earlier.

And I'm on here three hours a day, five days a week, explaining myself over and over and over again, but they want to twist what you said, because they don't want to argue against what you believe. And who you are. They want to create strawman and foils. To create hysteria. Because their arguments are losing arguments. They're not appealing to the American people unless you can turn somebody into a boogeyman. Which is what they try to do to President Trump. And so you hear them talking about Robert E. Lee that many people think he was a great general. Many people think he was a great general that the Confederacy would have lost a lot faster. Among those was Abraham Lincoln, who thought Robert E. Lee was a great general. Ulysses asked Grant, who thought Robert E. Lee was a great general. He was running circles around the union generals until Ulysse says Grant finally showed up. Which is President Trump's point. Lincoln had to fired general after general till he found Grant and he was advised not to take Grant. But he took him anyway. He took

And truthfully i didn't like a lot of people who made aliya who came here because they were running away from something i did not. I actually love america. I still love america. and i'm proud to represent the state of arizona. And i'm proud to be american. I i love what america stands for in the world so i didn't leave america. I actually came to israel. It's a different way of looking at it And for me there's a calling Of what this this state represents the idea of a reconstitution of our people is is one of the most profound thing that's happened to the jewish people in in two thousand years. And how could i. How could i sit on the sidelines when this is happening And so you know. I just want even a front row seat i wanna be. I wanna be in that. There's an amazing story. That's happening in israel and the truth was the best thing i did. The only thing that helped me get here was. I made a promise when i was young I was seventeen. And i made a promise that by the age of forty i was gonna live in israel and and sure enough when i was thirty. Nine eleven months in one week before my birthday. My wife stephen. And i in the twins at the time We boarded a plane and fluid israel. That was it. I made a promise. And i kept my promise To myself and frankly to to to our people and and that's probably the only way to really do it because otherwise it you know life. There's a certain inertia we get caught in our in the routine right and it's very difficult very difficult. I encourage people to make elliott earlier. ages is. I'll say this. I'll give by. It's much harder to make ali At forty like. I did than to do it at twenty five. After college age. I came here at twenty five so i i. It's true it's a your voice but it's also interesting what you say about people in their routine i zoom recently and ice chad did aside chat with someone who i know lives in in one of the big jewish communities in the united states. I said how are you feeling what's going on. And and he just said we're all very busy in our work and no one's really lifting up their heads so you know it's Big things are going on and and israel and the birth rebirth or the birth of israel is a big thing and you know you're right a lot of people just get into the routines and Certainly miss as you. And i are share. We share zionism but at the end of the day. Zionism the the of re relevant zionism doesn't have to be a dislodging of your of your life in america or anywhere else in the world. I still think that there's a value. I never gonna shy away from encouraging aliyah. I am proud of ali. I think it's a great thing and i want. I want fellow jews to come here. And i hope that they do but just because you choose not to come here doesn't mean that you're second class do it. If the that you have a greater responsibility your reserve duty for the jewish people.

"If you're in california to your left all it is is the water. So it's hard to sell to the fish. But if you're in arizona four hours you're reaching eighty five million people and so manufacturers understand that the supply chain Which is a critical role in economic prosperity and and and and in logistics is an advantage. So whether you're in iot or automated vehicles aerospace these are parts or semi conductors. Your that shift from california to arizona's happening and so companies that are in that ecosystem wanna participate in it. And then there's another natural area which most people don't think which is which is agritech and water because arizona's similar to israel both suffered from you know the the climates are similar in our own challenges are both had to be innovative and so they're put together partnerships between the d. for desert agriculture and arizona with with israel within romania negative and we've created these partnerships with agritech companies here and we want to encourage companies that look to sell and focus in that area to set up their operations in arizona. You can easily reach from arizona to to california to new mexico to nevada. And we're right in the heart of that in the hub of course as well to mexico and we have an arizona's set up the arizona commerce thirty three trade offices in mexico so these are all created and a lasting. Which makes it. I think attractive is. There's the it's the young puppies and everyone thinks of arizona of old. You know in the eighties and nineties. There was a place to retire. Sure enough you. If you lived in chicago you moved to arizona to retire and move to miami and today both miami and arizona are experiencing almost a renaissance. They're young people who are moving in. And there's a tremendous dynamic energy and arizona. That people are not that if you only if you see it you understand. Most people think that the number one university in america for innovation is like mit or stanford. If i asked you you'd never guess that.

"Don't. We don't usually talk about era zona on this podcast but it's It sounds very interesting to me. And i really want to share what you've been doing with my listeners. So let me get to my First question would have been active in politics finance business israel advocacy name. A few of the hats. You've worn how all of that experience lead you to be. The founding director general of the arizona israel trade and investment office will of all. I just want to say thanks for having me on and more importantly i've been a fan of what you've been doing and in a way It's very similar in in many respects. Would you've been doing is building bridges between The united states and even beyond and israel maybe through taxes but beyond taxes. It's about relationships and people and you've been creating those connections For decades and this is very similar The viability and the future of our state in israel is going to be very much dependent upon term. i call economic zionism. Which almost the next wave of what's critical. Which is ensuring that. The state of israel and our economy has the sustainability and capacities and relationships with with partners and allies and friends around the world. And that's how we're going to ensure that israel's economic viability economic capacity is shared. And so that's why it's it's really important to build these kind of relationships if anything. The pandemic has shown us that when people can't get on a plane and they can't travel they can't make their own relationships having these kind of almost ambassadors or or relationship builders between entities and states is critical but the idea is is all the credit goes to the governor of arizona whose Who really turn the state around. Many people i hadn't heard of arizona as a place to do business they thought of arizona just like people hadn't heard of israel as a place to do business. They thought it was. The you know the the holy land and a great place of of spiritual significance but most people if you would ask them in the seventies and eighties wind up said israel's the place to do business but this country turned around the same thing happened in arizona. Thanks to governor ducey which is in a way he refers to the state of arizona as the startup state and israel the startup nation. So the idea that there are two states who share an understanding of the importance of of innovation and entrepreneurship It's really a natural natural relationship. So he he really wanted to set up this trade office and there's only one other country in the world where arizona has a trade office which is mexico which is its largest trading partner. And so the idea to build a bridge between the state of arizona in the state of israel His with these state with with the assistance. Of course of sandra watson. Who's the ceo of the arizona commerce authority who's the leading economic development engine. And so there's been. Arizona has has emerged as one of the tech centers And that's starting to hit the wires everywhere. And if you look if you just do a quick google. It's the fastest growing population in across america. maricopa county in arizona. Is the fastest growing county across america from both the population sampling and also from an economic standpoint and so people are recognizing whether they're coming in from california and fleeing the the heavy burden of regulations and taxes Or whether they're coming from other

"Some of them were successful but coming back and building companies again was much more experienced and also secure funding. That it's i would say easier for them to receive after executing companies and also you see enterpreneurs that they don't want to sell so quickly they see their friends right. They see what's going on in the ecosystem system and only in the past year israel unicorn status has doubled from twenty five to almost fifty unicorns so company that festive billion dollars. So they look at that and say okay. I'm going to sell so quickly and not going to sell thirty million or one hundred million at one hundred sixty. I can really build a company here. I can build a cooperate ear and in israel. And i think this is really the main differentiator that it's evolved grow and that enterpreneurs. They don't wanna do to shirt cycles anymore. They're looking at the bigger stick the bigger companies. Obviously it's only five percents that they will. We'll be able to really execute that. But i think calm. I think it's really matured when you mentioned about the ecosystem in the in the maturity of the eco system is certainly have seen it in my side of this ecosystem. The accounting legal. it's really evolved. In the last twenty five years in terms of the experience aaron there was at one time you had to go to new york or or you had to go to palo alto for accounting and legal advice and and i don't feel that that is the case anymore The there's experienced here. There's knowledge here and so it's it's an interesting confluence of that maturity both in the ecosystem of the companies and the interpreters themselves and the supporting service. I agree i agree. Have you begun to see any impact of the abraham accords on companies. You work with the short answer is no and the long answer is that. I think it's in working process. I i don't know. We were almost a year almost a year into the records and at the beginning doors. A lot of high out of israelis flew to dubai abu dhabi a little bit of behind an israeli thought. It will be a fast engagement and he didn't. I think we need to still build this relationship there east trust but trust to build. The man is not flowing into israel and companies companies are not moving to Fast dubai are w-. W which i think in a few years that will be the case. I think there is still hesitant from as early companies to really You know execute in demeanor area. It's a huge area. It's it's you know it's can be an amazing Revenue stream and and she partner she but just not dare yet It's not too festival trust especially between countries that by the way warren diplomatic relationship for a long long time.

"You're managing partner of again. I hope i'm pronouncing it right. A and d ventures which is as i from your website is quote unquote redefining value investing. Can you tell my listeners. How your mission distinguishes you from other venture capital funds either a n. d. r. n. ventures. We define ourselves as a company. Builder based fund my partner. And i were in the industry for many years before establishing in and we saw These gaps for let's say early stage founders When they founding their company and a lot of help in really building the company for the first year year s and if you really look at fifty percent of the startup of the israeli start ups are failing for execution. And we wanna be there when they starting to build our company until they kind of heating gross and help them build it. We really aim to come as a partner for the company so we're not just investing or not just taking a board seat were actively helping to founders establishing companies And when we investing we architect the needs With enterpreneurs of the company manny focusing on detect that the base will be strong The products dacian which means okay have a great product to have customers for it And who are my customers so right from the beginning and then i think what's really really important Not just freeze rallies. But in general to grow is the execution of cells so detraction itself We work very hard with venture. Poor helping them bring customers for like the first year or two. That's where we think this is kind of the secret sauce helping from within it's It sounds like a a winning approach. So let me ask you this. What came first did you. I build your exceptional network of advisors and then established fund or did you establish the fun and then build this this network of worldwide experts that network that we brought into the found. Its network that. We've been collecting for the past. I don't know fifteen twenty years so it was always there but then there's always the question. Okay i have great network work and you mentioned. I was chief of staff in washington. Dc that i worked a little bit and blackrock. Then i was a partner. And i enjoy my partner. My co managing partner was google for six years. Lead there Acceleration program around the world before that life person before the microsoft and we have great network. So what do we do with this network. How can we bring them to the table And i think we created a platform that enable people to really be a part of what we do and also benefit from it. So i would say when we decided to establish the fund. We brought our network in so it was really altogether. How do we do a funded different. How do we bring our network that would like to work with us into the fund which was really paralyzed. So i personally have been working with high tech entrepreneurs probably for nearly twenty five years almost all of them. Alternately want to exit do you ever methodology to enable them to accelerate the path to an exit. Is that part of your your program. Yes yes so. Basically end a and e. is accelerate and disrupt Very original and again. it's it's coming back for execution looking at the israeli eco-system which is not so young anymore. Right we've been doing asked. I would say for the best thirty years already. So the eco-system has mature. But i think The gap still between say isreaeli startups or silicon valley based startups is execution itself and cells. So i think a part of exit part of the growth again. He's bringing validation and bringing the customer nutty israeli one the international. I wanted to north american one sooner than later A lot of time you see companies that are just you know. They're raising more funds in israel on this thing and he's wrong. They want to improve their tag their product. You know be perfect before going to american market. We think it's wrong attitude. We think you know they should be there as fast as possible and really do that. They're they're designed clients with with an american american corporation american companies So i think the the. I don't know if i want to say defense but fastest way to access. It is by being international sooner than what we see today for for stage companies and dc. Something that we we worked very hard with the companies with a very ambitious goal that a year from investment They gonna be ten axed of their revenues so if they had none revenues In you know you we wanna see revenues and if we invested when there is an issue revenues. I want wanna see growth for ten x inderfurth year of investment. That's great yet so again. You mentioned thirty years of the high tech industry in israel. I probably involved for twenty five of that. How has the world of israeli high-tech changed since you've been working in this area. I think it shades a lot. I think maybe the world is It matured so looking at that. You know starting thirty years ago into government actually accelerate companies or. We can say we evolved from the start of nation right to the exit nation where everyone boot companies sold him to operate quite fast to the growth nation. Where today for civil you see that can time third time four-time fiefdom enterpreneurs that build companies. Some of them fail. Some of them were

"I'm very excited today to have a special guest, Olry Waba, who's the founder of the global non-profit L ife Vest I nside, a kindness expert ,who's an educator., b estselling author, enterpreneur, and keynote speaker. Who inspires audience to take action. Her talks and workshops provide the groundwork for lasting change and motivate people to become the best version of themselves so they can influence the world for good. Drawing from her p ersonal journey, groundbreaking science and her signature w it, Orly inspires people to tap into the power of kindness. The most underutilized skill in today's world. Life vest inside gained international acclaim when Orly's award-winning film, Kindness Boomerang, went viral receiving over one hundred million people, landing her a spot at T ed 2013 and launched what was to become as known as the kindness revolution. Welcome, Orly. T hank you so much for having me. It's a pleasure okay. This is the topic You know, it just sounds wonderful to discuss and very excited to have have you as guest. So i'm going to start, usually I have my questions But i'm going to start out with a story which will lead to a question. Okay so this. This is actually a story I've n ever really shared other than my immediate family. But i've never stopped thinking about it. I was on a summer vacation many years ago with my wife and daughters. I believe we were there camping or had it tz immer and one night we were shopping in a popular grocery store in Kiryat Shmona. A s we stood in the checkout line, a family with young children w ere checking out ahead of us. The cashier finished ringing up their purchases and asked for their credit card. Unfortunately their credit card was denied, so the cashier directed to the store manager to receive approval for a personal check. Unfortunately that was refused as well. I will never forget the look on both the children's and the parents faces as they had to leave the store without their shopping cart. Honestly, my first reaction was one of annoyance that i had to wait fifteen minutes in line until the problem was dealt with, however by the time we got to our destination i realized i had missed a golden opportunity to help strangers and provide an educational example to my children. Too bad I had not watched Kindness B oomerang video before going into that supermarket. S o my first question is why do you think so m any of us miss opportunities to provide a little bit of loving kindness to strangers when they arise? F irst of all, t hat's such a fantastic story and unfortunately the fact that you that you are able to even when you got to your destination stop and realize that it was missed opportunity to me the way i see that, that's already a very, very big step because as you said a lot of people miss those opportunities because our awareness isn't increased. If you could ask anyone in the world you believe in kindness. No one's going say kindness. That's not me. I'll pass on that. As i have interest. E veryone believes in kindness and people also believe for the most part. But they're kind. I don't think that it was gonna go around saying about a terrible evil person. The thing is because kindness is such a broad topic. Such a broad thing. We don't necessarily take notice to these simple things. Some a lot of people also attest kindness to actually to charity right? You know they look at it as a to do list type of check item where you know. I'll go into maybe volunteer soup kitchen or going to you. Know an old age home and they look at that as the representation of kindness. Now not putting those things down. I think that there's a wonderful thing because you know they're fantastic but a person could go for example and you know Being a know volunteering at a soup kitchen and they can come out and give another person to look up and down. That makes that person feel like zero. Is that person a kind person. And the truth is kind of isn't an action it. It's not something that we do. It's really something that we live. It's the way in which we look at the world but it begins a lot with the way in which we look at ourselves for example. The men that no known as the the man of kindness. Okay our forefather. Abraham right now is a man of kind of he never did an act of kindness. Now that might sound a little bit crazy. He lived kind. It was it was just part of natural being. It was looking at the world through the lens of kind of sits. There was always that look for opportunities right. His cake was up on all sides to see. Where is this somebody that i can help. And so what we need to do is simply raise our awareness and recognize that. It's not like you have to stop in your day or schedule. You know yeah. I do kindness on mondays and wednesdays from two to three. You know you missed me to make an appointment for next week the next month. I'm a book this. It's not like that. Oftentimes they come into

Percents school if you compare to other advance Countries or on a well but the problem is that eighty percent of the people and they don't claim the tax refund from for from the tax authority. The reason is like it's two reasons one when we checked it in our survey we that one and half the people of this group say that they don't know that also employees can get ducks refunding israel. Second one too hard to them so just give up and that means the more than be schick every year and stay in the you know the tax authorities to go back to the people in the world like research we can see that talks.

Happy with the tokay so everyone should have a good appetite after our conversation so we begin with the following year company and it's products have received a lot of publicity as of late. Was your company created by people who wanted to save our planet and love eating meat or was created by people who love eating meat and wanted a healthier alternative while it's a great question and a very complicated one. I what we're doing is against the basically a war against me that comes from the fact that we love and we basically think that meat is great because amazing and we understand that embrace effect people will continue with just the technology that use the basically.
