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.

Let's, let's have trials. Let's, let's do, let's cancel them any way we can. Let's sue them. Let's, let's prosecute them. Look at what's happening with Trump. I mean, that's the Ken Paxton story in a nutshell. They've tried to stop. And I love the way Tucker framed this, and you have too, so brilliantly. Ken Paxton is arguably the biggest thorn in the, in the side of the Biden administration that he's, that the administration's got. And he has been relentless. And as you pointed out, he's, he's on the right side of every issue, borders, law and order, the Constitution, everything, the second amendment, first amendment, go down the list, everything we pray for and that we want, Ken Paxton's on the right side of. And so they've decided, okay, we can't, he wins in a landslide. We can't stop him there. I know, let's impeach him. Now it's the same thing with Trump. There's such an analogy between the Ken Paxton story and the Donald Trump story. We can't stop his skyrocketing poll numbers. He's, he's apparently going to be the GOP nominee. And now there's a path for a number two that might not be Ron DeSantis. I mean, all along we've said Trump or DeSantis, Trump and DeSantis, apparently the New Hampshire voters don't agree. Who's, who's second? Is Vivek second in there? I don't know. It's like a race for the, it's, they're all close, they're all clustered together for second, but it's, but DeSantis is fifth.
A highlight from 43: Week 2 Recap
"Welcome to the Ultraflex Football Podcast. Move over Pat McAfee. There's no denying that we are here to spice up your life and never forget about the good times. I'm your host, Anthony Sutton. With me, as always, is Rob Green. Man, I wasn't prepared for that change. What's up? What's going on? And Viva Forever, Ryan Wheeler. I feel so much pressure. Now we got to be better than Pat McAfee. All right. Oh, we got the... Go ahead. No, he's actually like swearing on ESPN now, and he's got like Mike Greenberg, he swore on ESPN now because of McAfee. He's actually... A little more laid back now, huh? Yeah, he wears a tank top. He's very good for ESPN, in my opinion. Go ahead. He's spicing up Disney, huh? I think I saw, didn't they have to put him on like an extra delay versus normal? I mean, I wouldn't be surprised. He has to cut out the F words a little bit, I heard. Someone's got to tell him to stop the cursing. No. Why? That's what makes it fun. I'm like eight song titles through my album here, so. Oh, he's like, damn, you're doing song titles already? Yeah, I thought you had to say him first. Holy moly. All right, well, we're about to find out what your song titles were. So Tony messed up two weeks ago. He didn't get all the song titles in, so now he has an album to himself, but because this is a team sport, a team podcast, Rob and I now have to split apart, or a album between ourselves. So Rob and I have Good Charlotte, The Young and the Hopeless. My songs are A New Beginning, Lifestyle of the Rich and the Famous, Wondering, The Story of My Old Man, Girls and Boys, and My Bloody Valentine. Rob? I don't know, man. I'm not feeling good about this week. This is a lot. Seven songs and a half hour show. All right, I got Hold On, Riot Girl, Say Anything, The Day That I Die, The Young and the Hopeless, Emotionless, and Movin' On. Tony, we're all wondering, what do you have? You have the Spice Girls, my man. And I already, I've gotten already into the pod. I've already gotten Spice Up Your Life, Stop, Never Give Up on Good Times, Move Over, Denying, and Viva Forever. I still need to get in Too Much, Saturday Night Divas, Do It, and The Lady is a Vamp, which will probably be a difficult one. Hold on, can you say that one more time? What was that? The Lady is a Vamp. Like a vampire, assuming? What's a vamp? It's a vampire. And that's from the Spice World album. 1997 made me feel old AF. 97, wow. I remember watching the Spice World movie, the Spice Girls movie. I do not remember. Oh, you guys didn't have older sisters, that's why. No. All right, anyway. Movin' On. All right, speaking of Movin' On, the NFL schedule moved on. We are now in week two, so let's get to Football Talk. And I guess technically we're in week three, so we're going to recap week two. As always, we're going to start with the Bills game, go to the Titans game, and then kind of what else is going on. So, Rob, you were at the Bills Raiders game. What were your biggest takeaways? It was a fun home opener. The Bills got back to their winning ways with a nice, easy, I'd even want to say I was worried at the beginning. It was a little annoying that they fell behind 7 -0, but I was confident they would still pull it out. They did. Josh Allen ended up AFC Offensive Player of the Week, I think the 11th time in his career now, which is pretty impressive. Wow, the franchise record. Oh, I didn't know that. Nice stat. You beat Jim Kelly, it was 10 times. Well, pretty nice. Feels like a new beginning for the Bills, for sure. Nice, Ryan. Where was I going with that? I told you guys a stat yesterday, actually, that surprised me, but Josh Allen is number one in completion percentage so far this year. I know it's only two games in, but fun little tidbit there. It's crazy how much can change week by week in the NFL, and it's going to happen again this week. If the Bills were to lose to Washington and go 1 -2, then it almost feels like the game, I know it wouldn't be a must -win, but it feels like the game against the Dolphins the following week would feel like a must -win. That way, they're not 1 -3 and that far behind the Dolphins, but yeah, it's crazy how much can change in one week in the NFL. Oh, show. My biggest takeaway, and I said it last week, kind of a similar takeaway for me was last year it felt like we never got pressure on the quarterback. This year, it feels like we're constantly getting the opposing quarterback pressure, and it feels like our offensive line is playing well, so big task, which is we're physical, we can run the ball, we can block, we can get pressure. It's a good change of pace. I don't know, honestly, I'm not smart enough to tell you if McDermott's play calling is a factor in that, or if it's just Leonard Floyd, hopefully his ankle's okay, is better, and Ed Oliver's having a better year, so on and so forth. Yes, I saw his average depth of tackle is negative yards right now, which is impressive. So his average tackle is a tackle for a loss. That's awesome. That's literally the definition of blowing up a play. So yeah, it's exciting. Obviously, this win means something, but it doesn't really if you go and lose to Washington, so got to two and one. Two and one, by the way. Oh, yeah. I think everyone does the thing where you kind of... Did we just lose our host? It kind of looks like a frozen face there. Okay. Hey, frozen face. Oh, Rob, it's you and I. Let's do this thing. All right. So I didn't get to talk about the Titans at all. Can we say anything now, because he's gone? Yeah, we can say anything. Say anything, say anything. Sorry, I can't sneak any of these. Good Charlotte. Anywho, girls and boys, my takeaway is that the Titans are who I thought they were. The team that... I guess who a lot of Titans fans thought they were. The team that's probably... You are who we thought you were. Welcome back, Anthony. Thanks. They're the team that's going to beat the good teams and lose to the teams they should beat. And that's how it feels like the Titans have always been. They keep every game close. They have a shot. They have a chance in every game. So they're not quite the young and the hopeless, but they're just maybe like the mediocre. No, they're not the young and the hopeless. Oh, I thought that was one of my song titles. That's the... Oh, no. Oh, no. Clearly. Well, okay. I guess I can cross that one off my list then. Anywho, you know who else I was impressed with was the Falcons. They play a certain brand of football. It's the NFC Titans. I think I have to be a fan of the Falcons now. But just ground and pound, they came back. They were able to pull that one out in Green Bay. So... Yeah. The Falcons. To your point, there's not many teams, I feel like, in the NFL that have an identity, like a true identity. The Falcons are one that you know exactly what you're getting every week. And that could be really good or it could be really bad. Oh, for sure. One of my week two takeaways is prior to the season, it was always... And I was the one on this podcast kind of leading the charge is how good the AFC is gonna be. And then if like through two weeks, which is, again, a small sample size, it feels like the 49ers, Eagles, and Cowboys are playing just as well as anybody. And they're all in the NFC. Now, the NFC doesn't have much else to offer, but those three teams are gonna be very formidable to whoever comes out of the AFC come Super Bowl time. Yeah. At this point, their high -end talent almost seems better than the AFC with a lot of the top teams in the AFC struggling. So... Do you guys think that three of the top five teams in the NFL are NFC teams? Maybe even three of the top four teams in the NFL? I think that's fair right now. Yeah. That's crazy, isn't it? Because before the season, it was like, the AFC is so strong, so good. They have all the good quarterbacks and two weeks is a pretty small sample size, but I think... I think at this point, yeah, it's safe to say those three teams are top five. I don't even know who you would put... I mean, I guess the Dolphins are probably the best team in the AFC at the moment. I mean, the Chiefs scored 17 points against the Jaguars. And I mean, the Bills looked very good last week, but you can't ignore how poorly they looked the first week on offense. So... And then obviously, the Bengals Chargers being 0 -2 hurts the AFC's, I guess, power rankings or however you want to look at it. And then Rogers being hurt. Those are three teams that I thought were going to have a very good season. They still might. Maybe not the Jets, but the Chargers and the Bengals.
A highlight from Ep.118 - Rewind to 1967: The Year That Changed Music Forever

me alone and I had to talk opera with myself talked opera yeah rigoletto did you talk about rigoletto this time I'm just really boring you know I'm like all right this is why this is a two and a half hour podcast some of us have to work tomorrow all right here we go let's jump right into 1967 musical events in 1967 and the year kicks off right away with a bomb a bomb on January 4th the doors release can arguably one of the greatest debut records ever arguably if you had a top 25 greatest debut that albums would have to be in the top 10 it would have to be yeah you know if you had a top 50 that would have to be in the top 10 right even if you don't like them you have to say that was so ahead of its time oh it's so different nothing out there was like the needle and all you hear it kicks I mean fucking what a way to start an album it's a heavy song it with a bossa nova beat yeah I mean that's pretty clever yeah 67 so you know bossa nova was pretty hip again John Densmore over underrated underrated underappreciated I think you are you are so correct you know never gets the the the consideration that I I don't know you can't put him in greatest of all time but could he be okay if there's a top there's a top 25 drummer top 25 drummers is he in it good question and in rock we'll just say in rock I think he could be I could see him making so I don't know if he's a universal pick but I could see him on some list I mean he's something you'd have to think about like you said like it doesn't get noticed so much you know yeah yeah or it I mean although his drumming wasn't shy I mean he's jazzy as hell I heard um writers on the storm yesterday and his adjustment playing is great in his adjustments during the shows just for that yeah yeah the unpredictability of you know how the how the song was gonna go right because they could rehearse it all they want once Morrison got into that zone well in the drama keeps the beat right yeah yeah the drummer has to stay up with that yeah and played to the clown so to speak right you know and my my problem is if some of the clowns don't have the beat you know at one point they've got to give in like I said Morrison or even Dylan they'll set the tone but they've got to be steady themselves you know it's yeah otherwise it's just erratic but you know yeah guy like Dan's more I mean I had skill I had a lot of a lot of technical ability right feel yes cool so obviously his drums always sounded good yeah on the earlier on the other records even you know three years worth of music whatever I guess I would be who produced some Jack Holtzman was the producer did a good job Jekyll or now wait so no what was it Paul Rothchild yes yes yes I'm sorry Holtzman was he on the record company yeah yeah was that it was that chrysalis or chrysalis I think or just like yes that's a lecture a lecture weren't they on chrysalis though also I thought they were yeah maybe maybe chrysalis was a subsidiary but uh yeah Jack Holtzman's son is Adam Holtzman he's a keyboardist right now he plays with here we go Stephen Wilson but he does a little blog on Facebook and he talks about growing up and he was like six years old and his father brought him to a club to see the tour Wow at six years old he just talks about like yeah it's a great little blog Wow all right and four days later on January 8th Elvis Presley turned 32 on January 14th the human be in right the human be e -i -n human being takes place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park polo fields with spoken words from Timothy Leary Allen Ginsberg Gary Snyder in others live music was provided by Jefferson Airplane the Grateful Dead Big Brother in the holding company and Quicksilver Messenger Service speeches from Jerry Rubin and others were also given at the event although it's one band there I liked yeah Quicksilver Messenger Service who was it on January 15th 1967 who is your favorite poet of all them I know you're not asking me Arthur Rimbaud who influenced Jim Morrison good answer good answer way to bring that first opening segment rough full circle we're getting better Scott we're good now you guys get a lot of good trust me I'm getting a lot of good feedback so let's keep it at that I don't want you son ask for more money and on January 15th 1967 the Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show at Ed Sullivan's request finish it he asked them to let's spend sing let's spend some time together is that the one there you go yeah and then he told him a really big shoe I hate to do this I mean I come back on penalty box I don't say

headphones on January 16th 1967 the monkeys begin work on headquarters the first album to give them complete artistic and technical control over their material and it was fucking horrible fucking horrible what were they thinking they know they were thinking the egos got too big they thought they were the music well the argument can be made that you know Mike Nesmith did write different drum yeah so he could write songs but I don't think he was a pop songwriter you know headquarters and they try to be all fucking like 60 ish and shit they weren't looking for pop were they they're trying to be like more psychedelic yeah I think so there were their channel on the Beatles with those quirky little yeah with anti -grizzelles on that I don't know some weird shit I'll tell you what though I don't care about it myself but it was surely a harpsichord on it because that's what all those records had they had to have a harpsichord and I have the book this the 100 best -selling records of the 60s the monkeys got a they've had quite a few albums on there oh they do yeah they were they were but I mean I thought it was just a condensed period of the show which it probably was but it's still I

great like dumbed down brilliantly done though humor yeah way was what they were supposed to act like that yeah you know what I mean there was no like these guys are bad actors they knew exactly how to do that they pulled it off great it was campy it was great for its time it's still great to watch now yeah I do think that banana splits were a better band yeah that's I'll give you the banana splits were a kick -ass band yeah yeah kick -ass man did you see the movie recently came out it's a horror movie with the banana splits the banana splits movie it's a horror movie yeah yeah it takes place in an amusement park and they're they're robotic and in Dyson and slicing baby Dyson and slicing I have to say oh man that's yeah okay yeah Dyson and slicing it's good it's kids again campy

A highlight from The Left Is Removing Statues & Erasing Americas History
"It's a real blessing to be surrounded by good people, and there are people who have my back struggling a little bit today. Two dreaded words, dry socket. Anybody who's had a wisdom tooth extraction knows the perils of dry socket. Well, good old dummy me got it and not doing so hot. So we're going to bring in my pal Kevin McCulloch. Kevin and I got to visit on the big Salem, New York, cruise around the island of Manhattan a week or two ago. Kevin, of course, is an accomplished talk show host based in New York City. He's been heard for years on our Christian station and on the news talk station. This is a man of faith, a terrific guy. And Kevin, you're going to help back me up a little bit today. I might be handing off the baton right off the bat. Have you ever had wisdom tooth dry socket problems before? No, I haven't. And just the sound of the words dry socket strike fear into my deepest being. So I feel very badly for you, Mike, and we've got whatever you need from us today. We're here to help. It's every bit as bad as it sounds, and it's not a good thing. It's what you don't want after you have a... I knew it was going too easy. I had the wisdom tooth removed Friday afternoon after the show. Everything was going great. Saturday, I was feeling great, Sunday not so good. And so it happens sometimes. So it's good to have you here with us. And first of all, many, many thanks to the great job you always do when you fill in for us. Of course, I've been listening to you for years, and it must be a fun experience for you because you're sort of transitioning from your own audience and your base into sort of another platform with our show. And I know our listeners have welcomed you with open arms. Well, I have, and Mike, the Mike Gallagher audience continues to be, I think, not only the most informed because of your daily efforts, but they prove to be generous in all of the campaigns that you do. And as I said when I filled in for you the last time, because I work PM Drive, I'm a big Mike Gallagher listener. I listen and actually many times watch your show on the Salem News Channel. And it's just fun to hang out in your sandbox. So thank you for letting me do that. Thank you. And thank you to Jerry Crowley and everybody at Salem Media of New York that allows us to have all the connections to do. It takes a lot of technology to do what we're doing at this very moment, Mike. And if it weren't for them, we wouldn't be able to. You'd be in dry socket hell if we didn't have a better management team. And speaking of Salem News Channel, That Kevin Show has become a big hit on SNC. You're doing a great job with that. And I love the mix. And I was one of your first guests. I was really honored to be on your show. And you've got a great blend of politics and pop culture and lifestyle and all kinds of neat stuff. In fact, speaking of that, let's kick off with some breaking news. Donald Trump Jr.'s account on X, formerly Twitter, was apparently hacked earlier today. I don't know if you've heard this story. There were a series of – well, get this. There were a series of offensive tweets, including one that said, I'm sad to announce my father, Donald Trump, has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024. You know, Kevin, there's such evil out there and there is such sickness and mean -spiritedness and viciousness. And somehow this almost seems par for the course, doesn't it? Well, it's one of those things where if Donald Trump lives this rent -free in the left's heads, just imagine how effective he'll be if he's reelected. I mean, this is – you've got to remember, and I know that you do, Mike, but for people that are listening, particularly cynics, Donald Trump's one of the few presidents that campaigned on a slate of promises and then went and actually did what he promised. If he comes back, he's already making promises about what's going to happen. There's going to be cleaning of the House and the FBI and the DOJ. There's going to be getting rid of the deep state at the Pentagon and places where wokeness has overtaken actual common sense in terms of policy. So of course they're going to play dirty and of course they're going to try to do everything they can. And all I have to do to compare what they think about Donald Trump Jr. is just ask the question, Hunter Biden? Question mark? No kidding. No kidding. Is there any comparison between the two? And you know, speaking of Trump and his promises and his predictions, something has come to fruition in New York City, and you know the city as well as anybody. Now comes news that these goofballs in Manhattan are actually going to consider taking down statues or any commemoration of George Washington, of Christopher Columbus. And I want to go back to 2017. I want to play this for you, Kevin. Check out what Trump said, because when he said it at the time, they condemned him. Oh, how crazy is he? Check this out. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of to them a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name. George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down excuse me, are we going to take down are we going to take down statues to George? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? OK, good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now we're going to take down his statue. So Kevin McCullough, do you remember the backlash? Do you remember the backlash he got when he said that and they mocked him and they said, what a lunatic. And he's a fear monger. And now just look at what's happening in New York City, what he predicted could be coming to fruition. Yeah. And you know, what's particularly sad about that, Mike, it's like if people have a different view of history, so be it. That doesn't mean, number one, that they should set policy for what everybody thinks about history. And certainly I would make an argument that history is made by flawed people. And it's really people that overcome the worst flaws of what they have that really do great things and that we should celebrate the great achievements, not expect every single human being to have been perfect. But beyond all of that, this city's in a mess. We have crime. We've got migrant overpopulation in ways and areas that we can't even begin to deal with. And this is what people want to focus on. I mean, and it is you're talking about a warped mix of priorities for sure. It's upside down. And it's absolutely happening as I mean, I've been following this and I'm in just absolute utter amazement, as you say, New York City dealing with crime, crippled under monumental budget cuts due to the illegal immigration issue that frankly the Democrats created. I mean, you want to be a sanctuary city, be a sanctuary city. And now the City Council's Cultural Affairs Committee is going to hold a public hearing on a measure to remove works of art on city property that depict a person who owned enslaved persons or directly benefited economically from slavery. Well, of course, George Washington's at the top of that list. So Trump was right. These nuts in New York and in other blue cities are going to try to remove the founding fathers from our consciousness because they own slaves. And it's exactly what Trump said back in 2017.

I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And, of course, listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues, all of them at hughforhillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Back now with my friend Arthur Brooks. Part two about this book, which we began yesterday, Build the Life You Want, Arthur Brooks and Oprah Winfrey. Yesterday was the intro, Arthur. Now, I want to do in part two the most important takeaway for me. Now, that's not for everybody, but for me is stop judging people. Now, you and I are both Catholics, so that means we've both been exposed to a lot of terrible church music. And I try not to judge the liturgy every time I go, but I always judge liturgy. And in confession, I always get assigned the litany of humility because it's a very good litany. But I think it is the key takeaway to being happy. Would you explain what the judgment advice is and how you came to it in the middle of Build the Life You Want? Yeah. So this book talks a lot about how you can manage your emotions through three basic techniques. Now, to begin with, you have to understand your emotions and get space between what you feel and how you understand these emotions. And you can do that through journaling and meditation and prayer and some people go to therapy and whatever. But once you actually have some space between the things that are bombarding you emotionally and what you decide to do, then you can react in several ways that are very constructive. Number one is you can decide to react differently than you feel. The second is you can substitute better emotions for the ones that you feel. And the third is what you're talking about, which is you can disregard your own judgment on the world. And this is critically important. Look, people are walking through the world saying, this is bad, this is good, this is bad. I'm bad. I'm not lovable. You're not interesting. The traffic is crummy. The coffee is bitter. And it's just exhausting because when you're doing that, you're not observing the world. You can't live in awe. And the result is that you are, in those moments, the central character in your psychodrama. The minute that you're judging everything, then the whole world is subject to the judgments of Hugh Hewitt and you can't stop thinking about Hugh. And that's just torture. We need to actually get some perspective and some peace. And the best way to do it is judge not, to quote St. Matthew. Now, he says, judge not lest you be judged. And even if people are listening to us are not Christian men and women like you and me, then judge not lest you be judged. Because when you judge everything around you, you're judging yourself as well. And it's exhausting and you will be unhappy. Stop with the opinions already. You don't need an opinion on everything. You almost don't need an opinion on anything. Let it go. Just simply allow it to roll over your back. I think it's just maybe the key chapter, but there are a lot of key chapters in here, Arthur. Let's make sure I touch on the key technique. I told him what the key takeaway, which is to keep a database of positive memories close at hand. And I employed this when my oldest, who is now 38, was a little girl and she would have a nightmare. It's happened. I would always end up with her talking about her favorite ride at Disneyland. And we would substitute a Disneyland ride for whatever it is that had woke her up with the bad dream. And I immediately referenced back to that when you talked about keeping a storehouse of good memories close at hand. That sounds so simple. It's really a wonderful idea, but people don't do it. They keep their bad memories close at hand, but they don't keep their great memories close at hand. Am I right generally? Absolutely. We have a negativity bias and that's just part of evolution. Evolution has equipped us to always pay attention to bad things and refer back to the archive of bad things that have happened in the past. And there's a reason for this, Hugh. The negativity bias that humans have is because negative emotions keep you alive, quite frankly. Your anger and your disgust and your fear and your sadness. This makes sure that threats don't hurt you, you're able to run away, that you're afraid of being sad so you don't want to be separated from your kin. So don't you walk the frozen tundra and die alone. All of these negative experiences or the negative emotions that we have are keeping us alive. The result of that is they're always getting our attention and we remember those things very distinctly as well. But that's not adapted in a functional way. The truth of the matter is that walking the frozen tundra is bad, but Twitter is no big deal. And so we're thinking about negative things that are little and insignificant using the same onboard computing hardware that was developed for the Pleistocene era. So what do we need to do? We need to be smart about it. Don't live just according to our instincts, but actually think and create a strategy that's more practical for the current moment. When you have a bad memory, when you have a bad dream, when you're feeling particularly negative, usually that's not an accurate representation of the world around you. People always say, look on the bright side. Well, actually you have to be more specific than that. You have to be more tangible than that. And the Disneyland memories are a really good place to start. I recommend that people keep a running list of the things for which they're grateful. Update it every Sunday. The top five things. I don't care how stupid they are. I got a bag of candy corn and liked it. If that's on your list, more power to you. Update it every Sunday. Look at it every single day. Literally, you'll be 25 percent happier at the end of 10 weeks because of the emotional substitution that you're undertaking.

"With Bloomberg, you get the story behind the story, the story behind the global birth rate, behind your EV battery's environmental impact, behind sand, yeah, sand, you get context, and context changes everything. Go to Bloomberg .com to get context. Trend cruising speed. We'll get the forecast from the Federal Reserve in about 20 seconds time alongside that Fed decision. Going into it, the price action looks like this on the S &P 500, positive by 0 .2%. On the NASDAQ, almost totally unchanged. To the bond market, yields on a two -year, shaping up as follows, near, in and around 5 % on a two -year in America, 5 .05%. Mike McKee has the decision. This is the very definition of a unanimous hawkish pause. The Fed leaves rates today in the range of five and a quarter to five and a half percent while saying growth is solid and inflation elevated, so hire for longer. Policymakers leave another rate move on the table for this year and take two reductions off the table for the next two years. The statement once again discusses, quote, the extent of additional policy firming that may be appropriate. And the dot plot shows that 12 members of the Open Market Committee still believes they will raise rates by another 25 basis points this year. The high dot at six and a quarter percent comes out of the dot plot with St. Louis Fed's Jim Bullard's retirement. For 2024, the committee now sees a median effective Fed funds rate of 5 .1%, up 50 basis points from their June projection. And for 2025, 3 .9%, up from 3 .4 % in June. The long -run neutral rate is unchanged at two and a half percent, although the central tendency range moves up to 3 .3 % from 2 .8, and the dots show seven members think that the neutral is higher than two and a half.

Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners. Good morning, Peter. Good morning, Ant, Dombey, Jacob, Wade, everybody else in the audience, all the loyal listeners. If you're new, we play that song at the beginning of every show. I highly encourage you to go look up the words and read the words to that song. It's mind blowing. Welcome back, Ant. Thank you. Thank you. I see you guys held it down. Yeah, we were all sad. We missed you. Oh, I'm really sure. I had to explain you to my sisters yesterday, Ant. Oh, I'm sure that went well. You were the technical guy, that's the other technical guy who does other technical things and has other technical knowledge. All the technicals. We did have like the Wicked show yesterday, was it yesterday? I don't know. We had a moment where the scale was up, came up and she was like, I have a wicked question. And then that was KSD. It great. was All right. You're listening to Cafe Bitcoin. This is episode four hundred and thirty eight. Shout outs to our sponsors on Fountain Nosterness. Our mission for this show is to provide the signal in a sea of noise, teach the other seven billion people on this planet why there is hope because of this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin. Today, again, we're going to try and discuss near perfect energy arbitrage. I've been meaning to do that for three different episodes now. We never actually get to it because the content is so dang good. The questions are good. The discussions are good. Hopefully we get that today. There's also a bunch of nonsense that the lizards are up to that I think needs to be highlighted. We shine lights on lizards and lizards doing lizard things. And it's I hope it helps you guys. Peter. Speaking of lizards, my banking saga continued. So, you know, yesterday I was talking about having trouble transferring money in my account being frozen, et cetera, et cetera. I thought, well, I'll just go into the bank, get out cash, and then I'll go make the deposit into my friend's account. Right. So I put my tweet up in the nest. I'm just going to it's real quick. I'm just going to read it. I said friend needed financial support, went to their bank with cash to deposit. Teller, we don't take cash. Me, what? Teller, sorry. Me, manager? Manager, we don't take cash. Random patron looks at me and mouths, what the fuck? Me, thank God. I literally said this. I said, thank God for Bitcoin. I walked out of the place. My friend, thanks for the BTC. You said that in a bank, Peter. What? You said that in a bank, Peter? Yeah. You're on the list. Hell yeah. You're on the list. That's like saying bomb on a plane. I looked at this lady, this manager, I looked at her. I was like, what the fuck is cash for? She goes, well, you can go buy stuff. I said, you're a bank. You don't take cash? No, thank God for Bitcoin. I fucking walked out. I couldn't believe it. You're all on a list. Every single one of you. It's OK, Peter. I got on the list a long time ago. I was on a phone call with my bank a long time ago and it was just like a lowly customer support person. And I was like new in Bitcoin, like brand new and like, you know, feeling it. And I was like, this is why y 'all are going down. You see, this is why Bitcoin is going to take you all out. So I'm sure I'm on the list as well. OK, later today, second half of the show, we've got Eric Kaysen joining us. Looking forward to that. That dude, he's one of my favorites. He's an extremely passionate Bitcoiner and deep thinker, in my opinion. He says some stuff that is I mean, there's a lot of edgy people in Bitcoin that are willing to say and call out lizard nonsense. Eric pulls no punches, man. This dude, when he's laying it down, I'm like looking around the room thinking, are any of these guys that are in here fed? Because he's definitely on the list. And so is everybody in this room. Oh, I'm sure we've had feds in this room for a long time now. Yeah, probably. I mean, these are all recorded, right? So, yeah, I guess they let it back. Yep, yep, pretty much. Good morning. They won't get the emojis, though. Yeah, screw them. I wish these guys would do something illegal. Mike Hobart, good morning. Mickey Koss, good morning. Terrence Yang, good morning. Oh, by the way, congratulations, Terrence. Terrence was on Bloomberg again. Dang. Thank you. Thank you. He's a regular now. Whenever they want to know something about Bitcoin, they call Terrence Yang. Your star's rising, Terrence. And Terrence is like, oh my God. And Terrence is like, hang on one second. I got to hang on one second. I got to park this dim sum cart so I can go get into a nice background place and do my interview with you guys. Exactly. Exactly, due to my crappy or just something's not great with faces for my audio, so it doesn't do noise suppression. So but it's motivating me to take a walk. So instead of you guys listening to the piano music from the hotel again. As long as you don't walk into that ballet center again, Terrence. I think that was Beetlejuice. I did not record. Terrence, if you don't mind me asking, since I didn't see the Bloomberg appearance, what did they ask you about? Did they ask you about any of your opinions on the Binance situation or is it just strictly Bitcoin and price? A little bit Binance. It was price, not as much price this time. I think I'm not sure why, but it was more about ETF kind of timing. And we got into spot versus futures of the SEC loss badly against Grayscale. So actual signal then, that's good. Allegedly, yeah. No, they ask good questions. That's good questions. And then talked about some tax stuff, stuff like that. Terrence, you were telling them how it's going to go down this year. That's interesting. How did they react to that? I did point out that 75 % of quote unquote experts surveyed said that Bitcoin ETF will be approved by year end, which I don't agree with. Yeah. Who are these experts? Are they the writers that coined it? These crypto people, right, because sometimes our stars do align a little bit with the crypto people short term. So their PR machine is formidable. So I think they just go around and random crypto experts opine on Bitcoin ETF timing based on their chat TBT law degrees or whatever. Here's a big wrench, Terrence, and you have a law degree, so you can tell me if this is possible. This may throw a wrench into the some of the bets on the side chains. What is it possible for the SEC to approve Grayscale, but with a go live date that's next year or far out or some kind of ambiguous, like, yeah, it's approved conditionally with this. And then people, well, it wasn't approved. It was approved. That I don't know, but typically they just kind of approve, delay or deny. And then when they approve, you just have to do all the paperwork. It's like they're always approved with conditions. Everything the government does or lawyers do. And now you're talking about government lawyers. So every approval is like if you meet the, you know, registration requirements, blah, blah, blah, you can do it. Go ahead and file the paperwork and, you know, give us comfort that you're compliant. Yeah, but they can attach conditions like, OK, so you're saying you're doing the surveillance sharing agreement. We are only doing this if that actually gets signed is, you know, not clear that that signed it, blah, blah, blah. They might add some details. I think that's possible. I don't actually know that much about ETF approvals, but that should be how it goes. It's kind of based on all the other stuff that government regulators tend to do. Yeah, because that's that's my new thing is, is this is backed by no for the listeners, no legal knowledge whatsoever, zero. But if they can find a way to approve Grayskills, put a timing on it that somehow screws them and lets BlackRock, whoever's first in line for the ETF, go live first. That's what I see them do. Yeah, that's possible. I feel like they're not that explicit. Like, OK, so a couple of things. One, if you're a Gensler, political animal, Bitcoiner, allegedly, you would probably want to do what? Delay approval just because, you know, hurts to lose three to zero in the D .C. In or batches dispersed would be one of the big four. It doesn't have to be BlackRock, right? Because the public perception, at least in some corners of the universe, they tend to think that BlackRock is super evil because they're so big, totally misunderstanding how asset managers work. But anyway, you might pick one of the big four, the new one being Franklin Templeton, 1 trillion .4 AUM, I think Invesco is like 1 .6, Fidelity and BlackRock are orders of magnitude. So one of those big four. Maybe do it in batches, politically you might do, I hate to say it, Cassie Wedge from ARK because she's a woman and she's very vocal.

"Music I needed me some Gary Numan mic with a little new wavy electronic sound of cars. Because I've done something now that you have done. My goal in life is to follow everything you've done. When I grow up, I want to be you. So guess what I've done? Don't get dry socketed. Okay, well, Lord knows. Oh, how'd that go? How'd that go? I may not make it today. I'm going to maybe do the hit with you and I am, boy, am I hurting. Oh, boy. I come out of here and I'm listening to the Mike Gallagher Show as all good Americans should. Bless your heart. You're saying, please call me so I don't have to talk as much. Oh, my gosh. And they oblige. Yeah, it's really. But what's going on? And then I'll get to my silly little story. Well, no, no, I didn't mean to interrupt you. I didn't want to. No, it's okay. First things first. And I know you're and you're a little cranky because listen, I want to I want to lift you up. If you've got to be scooped by anybody, be scooped by Tucker Carlson. No, you know what's funny? Because Paxton's people thought I'd be upset. Oh, we're so sorry. It's like, dude, it's Tucker flipping Carlson. There's 50 million people if that delays me a day. And I also totally understand in Tucker world if they say, look, if Ken Paxton is going to be on with us. No other media before this airs. I completely understand. Well, it also gives you a lot of great material based on what he's going to say. Five o 'clock tonight, it drops. Yeah, yeah. Because when I saw that unfolding, I thought about the timing because I saw his announcement of being on with Tucker and I knew he was going to do your show. And I thought, well, I'll bet you the Tucker thing has got to go first, probably. And they're bringing him to Maine, right? That he has been there. It has happened. It's been taped. Absolutely. Oh, wow. Interesting. So anyway, I had this stupid wisdom tooth surgery Friday and was feeling great Saturday, a little less great Sunday, starting to feel bad Monday. By Tuesday, full -fledged pain. Go to the dentist. He said, yep, you've got dry socket. I said, well, Lord. And don't look that up online if you're going to have wisdom tooth surgery. So it's like a really, really awful, awful pain. It's like when the I don't want to get too graphic. But it's it's people who know it, know it. Dry socket is what you don't want to have after you get your wisdom tooth taken out. So I'm not sure I'm going to make it. Is there something you I remember when I had some wisdom teeth taken out. I remember a piece of device that said, don't do fill in the blank or you'll get dry socket. What was that? And did you do it? Well, I ate and that's you know, you got to eat and have that. No kidding. And that's sucking through a straw. How about a straw straws? Bad. No straws. No, you know, don't chew on that side. You don't want to get food in there, but good luck not getting food in it. And that's the problem. The dentist, the oral surgeon said, oh, boy, you got some food in there. I said, I've been trying to rinse with saltwater and like they told me to do. And I you know, but it's bad. I mean, I was up all night and tossing and turning and you can't. And it's always bad. Of course, it's this interesting dilemma that everybody has in life. Everybody goes to the doctor, has the same. And if you've got a problem like this, they don't want to give you narcotics. They are so reluctant because of the scared of you. Well, hooked on something ensuing. Yeah. Because of the whole, you know, national epidemic. Opioids have a bad name. Opioids have a bad name. Opioids are awesome. The cause. There's a drop. They used to be the cause. I mean, the purpose properly used has been. And what's the thing? You saw it, didn't you? A painkiller. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. About about the Sackler family and all that. So this is they all this Dr.
A highlight from Abortion Remarks From Gavin Newsom & Trump Creating Tons Of Controversy
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. Did you guys hear the U .S. Senate just eliminated its dress code because you got this guy from Pennsylvania who's got a lot of problems, I mean let's just be honest. This push from the UAW for a four day work week, do you see that as the future of labor in the U .S.? I happen to believe that as a nation we should begin a serious discussion about substantially lowering the work week. Now from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. We have a lot to keep up with a missing F -35 fighter jet that was found finally in North Charleston, South Carolina. You got all kinds of controversies involving President Trump in some of his interviews. You have the slaughter of a police, a deputy sheriff in Los Angeles, they caught the guy. A lot of breaking news, a lot of stories about the illegal immigration crisis in America. Lost in a lot of the headlines was the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, taking a bit of a pot shot at Ron DeSantis. It came during an interview over the weekend that he gave to Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business. I want you to hear this clip because I didn't catch this until last night. I was intrigued by this because all of us have to be very careful as this presidential election process plays out. As I've said over and over again, if you're a never -Trumper, what are you going to do if Trump's the nominee? If you're only in for Ron DeSantis and you hate Trump and Trump is going to be the nominee for the presidential race, what are you going to do? You're going to support Joe Biden? You're going to back a Democrat? How's that going to play out for you? I think the same standard has to apply to members of Congress, certainly members of Republican Party leadership like Kevin McCarthy. Now, I think he's pretty effective. I think he's been doing a good job and he's got a mess on his hands with this potential looming government shutdown. It's like herding cats trying to keep the various members of the caucus happy. Listen to what he said to Maria Bartiromo, though, about DeSantis and Trump. What's your take on this, that as we see more indictments of Donald Trump, he seems to be gaining in terms of popularity with the public? Will he be the nominee? I think he will be the nominee. The thing is, President Trump is stronger today than he was in 2016 or 2020. And there's a reason why they saw the policies of what he was able to do with America, putting America first, making our economy stronger. We didn't have inflation. We didn't have these battles around the world. We didn't look weak around the world. Well, it looks like Ron DeSantis is now trying to work with your colleagues who are pushing for a shutdown. Yeah, but I don't think that would work anywhere. A shutdown would only give strength to the Democrats. It would give the power to Biden. It wouldn't pay our troops. It wouldn't pay our border agents. More people would be coming across. I actually want to achieve something. And this is where President Trump is so smart that he was successful in this. You know, President Trump is beating Biden right now in the polls. Yeah, we have the poll. Let's show it. He's stronger than he has ever been in this process. And look, I served with Ron DeSantis. He's not at the same level as President Trump by any shape or form. He would not have gotten elected without President Trump's endorsement. And so I believe our best step forward, pass our appropriation bills. So we're stronger. Take the wokeism out, secure our border to make America stronger. Wow. I don't think that was on my I didn't have that on my radar. Does that surprise you that Kevin McCarthy is all in for Donald Trump? So I think to be fair and to be consistent, I have to say I have to apply the same standard to Speaker McCarthy, because if DeSantis becomes the nominee, they're going to have a bit of a bumpy relationship. Now, Ron DeSantis heard about Kevin McCarthy's position and responded as well. This is Ron DeSantis answering a question from a reporter regarding Speaker McCarthy's full -fledged endorsement of Donald Trump. Well, look, I would say I mean, I think that if you look at what's happened with D .C. Republicans, they worked very closely. You know, look, Donald Trump, he supported Kevin McCarthy very strongly for speaker. I don't think he would have won the speaker vote. Donald Trump was instrumental in him earning that speaker's gavel. And they worked hand in glove really throughout his whole presidency. They were on the same team on every major spending bill that came down the pike. And they ended up together adding seven point eight trillion dollars to our national debt. Never in a four year period has that much been added than what they did together. And so he said that we're different. We are different because in Florida we run budget surpluses. We've paid down almost 25 percent of our state's debt just since I've been governor. All the debt, all the way up for all of Florida's history, we've knocked off almost 25 percent of it. So it's a much different approach to where we're doing it right. We have the number one rated economy in the country. We've cut taxes. We've expanded school choice. And we've delivered in a way that has made the state sustainable.

Yeah, and it's definitely like a palpable feeling in Western New York and across, I guess, Buffalo Bills fan land when they win versus when they lose. And so, I don't know, everyone moves around and walks around, talks like very optimistically. If you pay attention, some people go, I don't even know. I don't even know what the game did. You know, who won? But it's a pretty cool thing when a lot of people get together and actually there's a victory and there's a conference tough this year. So, one -on -one and go beat up Washington and then you got a big one against Miami. Yeah, oh yeah, they're a scary team. A lot of offensive power over there in Miami. So, Mike, first I need to make a correction. I mentioned on our morning Mike's episode yesterday that Philadelphia was looking at government -controlled grocery stores. I was wrong and I think it's important that we confess our sins. Fact checkers. Fact checkers. It was actually Chicago, Mike, another wonderfully run liberal Democrat city in a very wonderful Democrat -led and controlled state called Illinois. Well, Illinois, Mike, just so you know, is now also what I'll call a no cash bail required state. And this was pushed by, you'd guess it, Illinois Democrats. The idea here is judges can now determine whether individuals accused of a specific set of felonies or violent misdemeanors pose a risk to another individual or to the community at large. So, you know, once again we need to go to bat for these people that are alleged criminals. And forget about the victims, Mike, because the victims, you're victimized, allegedly, and you better seek some help, seek some safety, because these folks might not be held. They might not even have to produce bail to be held. Is it getting, I mean, is this just absolutely absurdity? Like some violent crimes, Mike, violent crimes, they might not have to post a bail. They could just basically be let out. And as long as you come back within 48 hours for your hearing, you know, then we'll deal with it. As long as you come back to court in 48 hours. You know, so, you know, we laughed yesterday because you realized right after morning, Mike, that you put in Philadelphia instead of Chicago. But it was weighing on my Christian mind. I know, I'm thinking of the Catholic school nuns and priests that I grew up with, you know, in education. I'm thinking, oh my gosh, I have to get back on the air. I have to redeem myself. And I'm sure we'll fact -check you on The Morning Show again tomorrow, too. So we'll get a double dose of it. But what I will say is you put in Philadelphia instead of Chicago, but just insert Democrat City here. So if you want to use L .A., if you want to use Buffalo, Rochester, New York City, like that's how bad it is. You screw these things up, Mike, because all of these places are the same. They really are. They are. They should be treated the same, too, because they do the same things. This government controlled grocery store thing, though, if we could just go back. Oh, yeah, yeah, we have to do that. That is as ridiculous as anything I've ever heard. A government controlled grocery store. The government can't control health care. They can't control anything. You know, F -35 planes that just go missing and or the budget or you name it. Right. Right. Now they're going to be controlling grocery stores in that area. Why? Not because they need to in terms of, you know, like every grocery store is out of business, but because grocery stores have said, I don't want to be there because that place is a hole. Right. That's exactly right. And that's that's really the absurdity of it and the humor in it. So this is this is from Amaya Powar, senior adviser at Economic Security Project. This is about that. The Chicago run city owned grocery stores. The city of Chicago is reimagining the role of government. Mike, stop, stop for a second. Yeah, let's not let's not do that and say we did. Let's never reimagine the role of government it's unless closing government down and reducing the size of it. I want to know who first imagine grocery stores run by the city, by the government, and now who's reimagining. So it was an imagination. Let's leave it in imagination. Let's not make it reality. So this was the idea though. What role can government play in our lives by exploring a public option for grocery stores? Bad idea. Bad idea. Via a municipally owned, municipally owned, Mike, who owns municipal taxpayers, right? Yeah. So municipally owned grocery store and market. Not dissimilar, Mike. So, so if you were thinking this is maybe going the wrong direction. Oh no, no, no. Think like this. Not dissimilar from the way a library or the postal service operates.
Dan Bongino: Life Begins at Conception
"Today and I do have a lot to get to folks listen man Don't back away from this issue. I saw some folks on Twitter and truth yesterday saying you know kudos to whatever Dan first standing up for a problem I don't need any of that I appreciate don't it get me wrong but I'm not doing it for any political party or any political candidate I just I don't believe in killing babies like that's it and you you can could dance around it all you want you know we don't know when you don't know know when life begins well you don't either so I'll tell you what I'm gonna take the chance on my side that my information Thanks for watching! this is a hundred percent and yours is zero so every human being on planet earth correct went through the conception age Jim can you fact check that is has anyone avoided conception you know of Mike just a bit you haven't no mic standing by but he's pretty sure so granted every every conception does not result in a birth you have miscarriages but unfortunately happens all all too often things happen during birth however every a human being on planet Earth went to the conception stage so my record of success S on abortion is 100 % that I think life begins on conception
A highlight from Mike Signorelli
"Trump calls Florida heartbeat bill a terrible mistake, and Mike Pence talks war with Russia. So I think if you will allow me to speak critically of Donald Trump for five minutes, I will speak critically. No, no, no, no. Look, you know, and I know, everybody listens who to this program knows that I don't think Trump is perfect. I think he ought to be the next president. And I think that, as you know about me and about many people listening to this program, that we are radically pro -life. We think it's a moral issue. And I think that Trump has made, I think he misspoke. I think it was, I don't know. Well, talk about it so people understand what we're talking about. Donald Trump went on face the nation and said that the heartbeat bill Ron DeSantis bravely signed in Florida was a terrible thing, a terrible mistake. And he said that he wouldn't commit to supporting any kind of federal restriction on the taking of unborn life. And he said with characteristic real estate bravado, well, I'm going to have policies that are going to make everybody happy. Everybody's going to walk away happy from the table. That is not how things work. When you're talking about life and death issues, Mr. President, that is how things might work. If you're negotiating over ownership of a golf course. All right. All right. Each of you is going to get nine holes. Okay. You'll each get nine holes. It's wonderful. You got, you've got half a golf course, half a loaf is better than none. But we remember from the story of Solomon, half a baby is not better than none. In this case, we're talking about cutting the baby in half. Literally we're talking about should abortion, should the pro -life position be, we want a bad abortion after maybe 15 weeks, which would only get rid of maybe 8 % of the abortions in America. If that's the pro -life position, it's not worth a damn thing. That's the law in Germany. That's the law in France. That's the law in Belgium. All these countries where euthanasia is now taking over. Having a 10 week, a 15 week abortion ban solves absolutely nothing. It just means the women who are so dopey, they don't even know they're pregnant until like 18 weeks won't be able to get abortions. That's all it means. He's really just punishing the stupid. It's not saving a significant number of babies. I don't know who Trump is getting his advice from on the abortion issue, but they're not on our side. They are like the Jared Kushner. They're not on our side. What Trump is saying is a complete loser position. It's like saying we're going to build the wall. We're going to build the wall with the Mexican border, except every 20 feet there's going to be a gap. We'll get most of the wall built. There'll guess who will come. I think a couple of things need to be said. First of all, I already said it. Trump is not perfect. So he often has done things that I think are harmful to himself. And saying that I think just politically is a mistake. But we also have to say without a doubt he has been the most pro -life president we ever had in this country. Because of him and standing up for Kavanaugh, Roe v. Wade was overturned. I want to remind people of that. I also want to remind people that he spoke at the March for Life. No other president had done that. And so right now, I guess I find everything with him, not everything, but a lot of stuff just funny. It's almost like he'll say anything Ron DeSantis says, he'll say the opposite. I know. You could be triggered and tripped into that. And it's his Achilles heel that whatever Trump, whatever DeSantis says, Trump will somehow try to spin it. Trump even said that Andrew Cuomo did a better job on COVID than Ron DeSantis. That is literally the most insane thing any American politician has said since Jefferson Davis said I want to secede from the union. It's up to that level of crazy. But Trump, I mean Trump does this stuff for effect. In other words, for political effect to drive people crazy. That's why I guess I find it at least partially entertaining that he'll go out on a limb and say something like that just to trigger DeSantis. The problem is this stuff isn't cute. There were thousands of people murdered in those nursing homes in New York. Abortion isn't cute. This is not something funny. This is not like letting Jared and Ivanka turn the White House into their own little party hut. This is really serious. And our only leverage over Trump is right now during the primaries. If he gets the nomination, he can do whatever he wants because he will be elected president unless they assassinate him, which I do not put past that. I do not put that past the deal. Oh, I know that there have been attempts that we haven't heard about, but obviously they would do anything to get rid of him. We have our leverage now, especially before the Iowa caucus. Trump needs to be told if you keep saying this weak, rhino, wimpy garbage about abortion, maybe we'll hold our noses and vote for you against Joe Biden because we don't want to be put in prison camps. But we're not going to go to the mattresses for you. We're not going to go to the wall for you. We're not going to be fanatical, devoted supporters. We will hold our nose and vote for you the way we held our noses and voted for George W. Bush. Do you want to be the next George W. Bush? Well, no, John, I think it's worse than that. I think what will happen, what will happen is many evangelicals, pro -life evangelicals simply won't vote, which I think is an unbelievable mistake because they feel it's principled not to vote for Trump because he said this about what DeSantis's view. On the other hand, let him think that and maybe it's true and let him act accordingly. It's like if we are so on the reservation, Eric, that they know they have our votes no matter what they do, the Republican Party will keep treating evangelicals and pro -lifers the way the Democratic Party treats blacks. That is, you have no choice where you're going to go, take whatever scraps we throw you. So no, I think it's good. Let him be a little afraid that we will go off the reservation. No, that's why I just said that. That's why I just said that. In other words, I actually believe that that's true because when you look at what happened in the last number of elections, there are many evangelicals who are so pious in the negative sense that they would say, I'm just going to sit home and I'm not going to vote because Trump had three wives and I'm going to let Hillary Clinton or Satan or Adolf Hitler take over America because I'm so pious that I won't pull the lever for somebody who doesn't agree with me on everything or who puts out mean tweets or says things I disagree with. That is effectively how we got Biden because we didn't have a serious situation that we're in. On the other hand, Mike Pence is saying that unless we give long range missiles to Ukraine so it can kill lots of Russians, we'll have to go to war with Russia because it will invade Poland. So in order to avoid war, we have to fight a war. It's exactly what George W. Bush said about Iraq, that we have to fight the terrorists over there so we don't have to fight them over here so they won't do 9 -11 again. Now we know now Iraq had nothing to do with 9 -11. It had no weapons of mass destruction. So he lied us into the Iraq war. In Vietnam, they told us we had to fight the Vietnam war so that the communists wouldn't take over Japan and then Hawaii. The whole domino theory is something that warmongers and the military contractors they work for, they whip it out every time they want to get us in a useless war. They say, well, remember Neville Chamberlain? Remember 1938? And I always say, remember August, 1914, when they blundered into World War I and destroyed all three of the main governments involved in it, all based on nothing, based on lies, based on garbage. Sometimes it's November, September, 1938. Sometimes it's August, 1914. And you're the idiot warmonger about to plunge the world into destruction because of your silly fantasies private about being a big man. Mike Pence is one of those warmongers and he's very dangerous right now. There's never enough time to talk to you, my friend. We'll get you back as soon as possible. Thank you, folks. We'll be right back. Thank you. For 10 years, Patriot Mobile has been America's only Christian conservative wireless provider. And when I say only, trust me, they're the only one.

Anyway we knew the type of service you was going to get us you use in your happy place when you got to the ratchets by that just should have went to anyway. And it's unfortunate she. She's like why do you want me to eat what crackheads see and that's another thing yeah i rather eat. I'm very offended by that. I used to be a cracker. I used to be a craig. I'm very about it. Well i rather. I rather smoke with my crack. Has the drink with some babylonian. I don't know. I like when we got there. Doesn't this bill as soon as you walk into her pin. Here's some you was good. Show harvey morning show city barbie grasp graphs. And you're doing good. It's still good to hear from the call. I wanted to talk to cindy for second. I know what you're on your sister. Say don't blast. Don't let it be non. you gotta go fix it. I now last there and do make it right the same way you blast them you go back and you know. Do your retraction or tell everybody that thinks. Instead of 'cause they need to know from the jump they don't like with people like that. Have you got all these people. It's gonna respond to it. They're gonna be like damn. We messed up. We need the sixties and then they'll also know that they ain't supposed to do that any body because you never know what pool people that don't wait today trying to fix it. No you blast some embarrassed. Put him in the spot where they say. We've been not ever do that again. Because somebody anybody couldn't have too many people and like you said in a covert situation one bad review could mean we gotta close down for good for his the problem with that and i see they might always call them with clarity words wisdom. But here's the problem with this when my call he's gonna drop juice but the problem. I you a underestimating. The relationship between the sisters. It's all i can say one wrong thing. Does people too much you got got to. You got to put up with that consideration. So once this the battle with the yield to her you right. But i don't. I don't want to get into the whole thing because i think i think citizen let it go if the sister wants to call the restaurant the next day was i think is crazy right now now the next time this morning. What you're saying is absolutely right. But i think the next time this happens which goes out. I think now cine could say listen. I'm not going there. I'm not going there. We go to ratchet bot. Because you know we did your thing now. Let's do my thing and that's like agree with you. So i'm steak repeatable moment for both of them now for the sister we embed some right away and get what should've done done all the time or it's a teachable moment. Where like you said. We ain't going to that place no more. We want alice report on. Go to the rent. Get what we want and enjoy ourselves and you know what would happen. You know a cenis right and you're right it's something internally with us where you just said you just said it seems like you know because we're black. Bob la bobble babylonian. I get that and i get everything they're saying. Well well well it says some of it is true question about it but my thing is this lees back to the question. Of what part do we play. Why didn't we do our research. Why didn't we find a latino spot. Why didn't we find a african americans by or why did we find a a friendly babylonian that we know that's going to show us love. Why did we go to. Why did seeing sister had to go to ground zero of the babylonian cholesterol. So that's something that that's something i mean. They went right. The ground zero right the literally. The name of the place implies nobody be black. You don't even have to come here. The name i'm going to say that the name of the place liberty clearly says black people you care you come if you want but we really don't need you here and nestle because don't read down the to say as you get your money only wanted to change if you don't come back so what. They still got some money. They need to be embarrassed. They need to be dealt with us watching you because you can be gone tomorrow and i could be the one that make you happy. And that's absolutely right. Would you gotta be careful. Be careful and especially in the service industry later but see in the service industry. You're right might you have to be careful. She may point to like we can listen. We get any social media streets not going to be good for you. It's not gonna be because you got to understand that you have to serve everyone respectable way through you came because think about two million people hundred or whatever but you could have put you into the lakers spot. That would've appreciated appreciated to give the people who don't respect you your money just to say you won't put certain place closed at sydney. I sympathize which you went through yesterday You and your sister and the most important thing is that you and your sister you know. Continue to continuously love each other and have a great relationship other. That's the most important thing now when it comes now when it comes down to this whole restaurant thing. I think your sister owes you one. She owes you on your reboot repeat. Repeat whatever you call it these days and she needs to follow your lead this time and i think the air all this out. Yeah yeah maybe another day. When she's off she works so and that's even worse is that she works so much and she's under so much pressure with this job that we were just like you know first day.

So i want all women that go into their burgeoning space to know that nothing can happen to you without you saying yes or no to. Its full your decision and just truly empowered by your voice because you have one you can use it. Yeah yeah and i feel like having a knowledgeable and experienced dula is helpful because they can help you navigate those situations where maybe a little bit of petition is going to help you where maybe that magical exam is actually going to help in this situation. Yeah and to be able to understand that the true pros and cons because that's not always presented either in birth as you and i both know So fully understanding pros and cons and the situations. I think that's part of where a dula this. So valuable apps in ankara and remind you of your voice and those more vulnerable moments absolutely. Yeah so thank you kisha keep up all your amazing work and then keep following you. Thank you for having me again michelle. I really enjoyed it. And i did too.

You have their or you save a little bit of money. You create a little bit of breathing room and you let kids blossom hoping. They're even better than the known quantity that you had before and spags ended up saying basically. That's what they were gonna choose matt very quickly but like letting the kids play is something that you do when you're a foreign twelve rebuilding team you don't say let the kids play when you're coming off of back to back super bowl appearances like just to me. That's a rebuilding phrase. That's a we're super confident in our group type of phrase and if you wanna break it down and make it even more depressing basically it was mike us and you got a seventh rounder and they got a shot breeland and a six rounder and the chief save two million cap space.

Also i had this idea to do this and it turned away more. Yeah exactly I just i like talking about movies. I was a film critic for quite some time. It was a good op- it'd be a good reason for me to see not only mcu movies. I hadn't seen but kind of go through the series again. And i don't know anything about comic books. I figure my my perspective would be just film. Based because i just i have no connections. Who comic books think. I've read three in my life. So yeah it was fun. And then i'm still enjoying it.

The state of montana needs to make a plan to address climate. Change here with nate bellinger. Who's one of the council. On that case and mike innate. The kids on our crew have a lot more questions for you. Do you have a plan on how to basically defeat climate change. Well we're asking the state to come up with a plan so it's pretty broad but they basically have to make sure that they give us our constitutional right to a clean and healthy environment. So they'd have to come up with a decent plan for them to make sure that they're following our constitutional rights. Let's back up a little bit and talk with your council. Nate bellenger about the civil rights. Part about what you just talked about. And we've covered civil rights in our constitution a lot on the children's hour and you can find those podcasts at our website under our podcast link.

"This narrow defying their emphasis fraud. He saw park does says christmas outfits speed. That was a good job. I'm going to clarify a little bit of that. So they understand is that okay. Yeah so the way in which his dad describes chris as he's like. The bamboo tree available tree requires a lot of watering and pruning literally for years. Before it actually sprouts but once it does sprout. It actually grows up to twenty feet in. Its first one or two months of actually sprouting the soil. So if the prune and care and water for this tree for literally years and you don't see anything but what's happening is the roots are growing so deep that when the when it does break the soil it can grow so so fast that it can support itself. Well that's the way that nick chris's dad has taught him the one percent. They built really strong roots underneath so that chris could sprout and grow really fast when the time was right and the difference between chris and one percent better and normal athletes is while his foundation is being built so slowly so slowly he does see immediate gains that other people see when they start training for. Thanks so chris. When he first started racing he was actually dead last in a special olympics event by a large margin the next time he started getting faster while he started getting faster and faster over time. The other athletes kinda peaked out. But he kept building building and building and while he still may not be the fastest on her sprint. He has the ability to kinda just grow. Grow grow and now he was able to do a complete iron because he learned the mental mindset underneath getting one percent. That's that's the story. He just shared right buddy. Who was a great job great job. I've never heard you share that story before you know that. Got hit drake's the guy out sharing he's doing that until Yeah bucko through. Mike us through i am and i am i just. I love this. Bamboo story so much. Andrew i am too i i feel like that is so inspiring for me chris as the mom of a a kid who's five who has down syndrome.

"mike us" Discussed on KTRH
"Back You're listening to in the oil patch radio show are your host Kimble Otto, along with my co host, David Blackman. And we're interviewing Dr Palmer, whose recent book Shell controversy were jumping into it, Dr Palmer. I want to bring give you a chance to respond because in the closing last segment, I discussed that there's a lot of controversy of what's real and what's not real so Go ahead and finish your final thought on that topic before we move on to the Paris climate accord. Yes, Thank you, Kim. Um, I think there's physical evidence that's Pretty conclusive glaciers melting and active guys, um, disappearing and Um Corals. Bleaching of call. Okay, That's pretty much established, OK call in physical Manifestations. Okay, all right of global warming. And now now, when you switch to extreme weather events, it gets very confusing as you kind of alluded to For example, Gregory, right, Stone has written a book called Facts, You know of Climate Change, Right, and he has some very good Graphs in there that show the trends off wildfires. Droughts, hurricanes and tropical storms. That's one we call extreme weather events, okay and Those Direct those tramps do not show worsening. Friends over 50 years. I think this is this is an Achilles heel for the climate movement because it does not show these things getting worse and worse and worse, Okay? Am I On the other hand? Um, the last 10 years has been the hardest 10 years ever. And that brings us to a stranger, the wildfires and California the wildfires and Americans. This year we had a record year for a shooting last year record year of hurricanes. I think I know I went through two of them, right, so you back to the uncertainty again, So it's like, OK, so the trends over 50 years don't show. The worst things, but Mike US. It looks like it is worsening right now, instead of somebody needs to to plot out Um, grafts and right Stones book only go to 2016. I think And so why don't one of the things on my list is to plot out the things that I mentioned Hurricanes wildfires detector through 2020 to see if there is an uptick because it looks like This is added to the uncertainty and I think I'm guessing that Gregory would say You know? Yeah. Yeah, We don't see the worst in trance. But in the last few years, you know, things have kind of works. It looks like there's that works. So we're back to the uncertainty again. So there's very good physical evidence. But as far as extreme weather's I think it's a mistake to say Oh, my gosh, This is the worst hurricane we've had for some time. It must be global warming. I would not say that at all. That's what they just said. And I agree with you, David. Yeah, yeah, of course. 2016 was right in the middle of that decade long Whoa in hurricane activity, which is askew just said has sped up here Over the last few years. Um So let's think so. We have that. You know, anecdotal evidence, physical evidence, horrible stuff happening in Australia's We've We've all been aware Uh, So we now have a new president on his first day in office re committed the United States to the Paris climate accords. Which we talked about a little bit in the first show we did together last week. So So, here we are. We're gonna be back in in the United States. We've already met a lot of our goals here in the U. S. Under that accord, but talk about I think it's important for our audience to know. First of all, how are the accords structured? On. Do you know what the United States vision role in the accords really is on. We'd love to have your views on that. Yes, Um Way committed to reduce the Captain. Dark side the greenhouse gasses by. I think it was 25% by 2000 and 30, and I think we've succeeded. I think we have We've reduced the emissions by 17% of things. So here in the United States, right this existence in the year aside, and that's been volunteer E as well. And cracked. A lot of it is voluntary. That's correct, Big, big, big chance. But it is power stations changing over from called to burning gas. And that, of course, is partly because gas was cheap because of the success of the shale. Revolution s O We've been very fortunate in there. There's this. There's many other Successes of that that the benefit of society even including the chief Yes, but for our cars, trucks and central a swell is America's commitment. They're with reducing greenhouse gasses. There was also a commitment to To found two air to the general family. Think $3 billion. Okay, and I think we had a two billion The Trump administration came in and that stopped okay because we got out of the way got out of the parents agreed then but also to help. Part of that is to help less fortunate. Countries, poorer countries who are more vulnerable. The poorer countries are definitely more vulnerable. To climate change affairs. Okay, And so, um, because where one of their is just that's the richest country in the world, so we can't afford Tonto. Help them out. And I think we should. I think there's a kind of a worldwide, you know, Right? Well, we're all in. We all live on one planet. You're absolutely right. Dr Palmer, hold that thought. You have to take a heartbreaker.

"Just that person's opinion and opinion is nothing more than a belief and a belief is something that is not a fact and as not necessarily true let that sink in for a second opinion is something that is not fact and is not true if it were a fact or if it were true it is not an opinion and if somebody comes to you and quote unquote criticizes you. But i'm just. I'm just going to use that term for a moment incorrectly. A statement. That is a fact that let's say that you did something wrong. And it's a provable fact. Then you have to accept that they are right and you did something wrong and you have to move on from it and you have to learn from it in an effort that you don't repeat it and if it still hurts knowing that you did something wrong or if you continue to do it because even though you did it wrong and it's a fact that you did it wrong and you continue to repeat it. Then that's nothing more than your ego getting in the way that you just can't accept the fact that you did something wrong otherwise somebody's criticism of you whether it's negative criticism constructive criticism. It doesn't matter is nothing more than their opinion. You decide whether or not you agree with it if a coworker comes to you and says hey mike us shouldn't have done that because that was the wrong move. Okay based on. What is it true that that was the wrong move that just as guy's opinion that it's the wrong move. And does he have any background or basis for even forming this opinion beyond the fact that he thinks he would have done something differently so in order to deal with. I the first tactic to deal with. Criticism is to understand. It is nothing more than their opinion. And now you get the choice because the choice that you make is ultimately the thing that you have control over you get to choose whether or not you agree or you disagree and if you agree okay great now you have an opportunity to grow and change and learn cetera cetera. Become one percent better. If you disagree then don't let it bother you move on. It shouldn't bother you if you disagree. Because you know that he's wrong or you believe.
"mike us" Discussed on Life of an Architect
"Are there times when you feel. Fed up with architecture in andrew gets to take this one. I was in because you know my answer after our from yesterday. No well no the truth is of course. We know everybody's answer this question. Yes i mean that's a that's a resounding yes. I think. Oddly enough i find. Maybe it happens more. The older i've gotten but i don't know maybe not maybe it's because seemed to change. Actually i rarely get frustrated with your. I get frustrated with clients and or contractors and or those sorts of things. I really get frustrated with the act of creating. Architecture are doing more have probably veteran. Designing architecture rarely frustrates me. It's all the other components that are involved with it which again are eighty percent of what you do probably jer share. That's what gets frustrating. Yeah but yeah. I think i would say it happens. At least maybe once a year round mike us. This is the worst thing. Why did i do this. But if age it's just happens in moments. I think if. I felt that way for a long time i thought you were to say it happens. There is a pause you at least once as like a day and you say here so i don't know maybe we're in different ban wits on this but i was going to say of course. I get fed up with architecture. I think anyone who says otherwise is kidding themselves at the very least this is not an architecture thing anybody who has a job can get fed up with it. I've gone through this several times. Like the idea of getting just fed up. Let me just interject. This'll store. I used to work for a guy still practicing. He's killing. it always has good work. I have a lot of respect for him every now and then he gets. You'd get super angry. But i saw him like on the third day. When i first are working his job we went to a meeting. And i'm trying to think i can clean it up. Clean up the story. It's laced with so many daryl. The short version is. We're meeting with this couple. And we were talking about their kitchen dude. This was like my day to on the job. Day was filling out forms and getting computer stuff. Set happened so day to on the job mean him in his house and it's this husband and wife. They're older than both of us. He's ten years older me and they're probably ten or fifteen years older than him and they're talking about how they want to redo their kitchen or having these conversations and my boss goes we'll do x y z. She goes. We can't do that and he's like why not. Well he sits there. And i make the eggs here and then i turn and i put the eggs there and he can look out the window and the guide. My boss tom goes. You can't turn your head. And he.
"mike us" Discussed on Bitches on Comics
"The desperation there and i think that the right so clear with this character is presented so innocently in the first twenty issues into then to let her do something awful and deal with the consequences of it and not be able to fix it because normally that character is there to be the counterbalance to the jaded hero. Right like that character exists because we have the young innocent character who is supposed to embody that character before all of these terrible things happen to them that made them so jaded. And then it's just like yeah. That's not really how it plays out here. And i mean the stories all the better for it and all the more complicated for it because also who's a good person during war you know like that's something flake i just think that the realism of ethics and morality is something that we just never see in comex. You know there's things where we dive in a little bit on characters but not to this level where it's just genuinely asking these questions of lake. Say you're born in a place where all you know is war. Angie you're starving to death and everyone you've ever cared about is dying around you like. How do you be a good person in that situation. Well i think the other really cool thing about those tam. Tam lectures at the end. Is they show some of the propaganda. Yes show the way that humans are trained to think of cat says evil and i came here exactly what they call them but they call the are canucks demons in. There's this point where you know. Mike us standing on a wall and she's looking at one of the the kaiji the old gods as they call them and she's like i can't believe we're so busy fighting with each other when there's a real war to be fought. There's a real enemy that we need to fight and it feels so much lake. Maybe this is just because of what you and i were talking about before we started recording but it feels so much like. There's all these people who have all this interest in common who can't work together and it feels like a bit like the problem with the left where we can't come together because we're so busy disagreeing dubya valid disagreements sure but when you think about fascism versus like nuance that should be a unifying factor and it's not and i think that it's incredible to use a completely different world completely different set of characters from vastly different species vastly different ways of looking at the world to interrogate that same idea. It is frankly breathtaking. I'm going to spend a lot of time thinking about monstrous. And i can't wait to go back and start over you know. Oh same. yeah. So yeah. I mean i would say the. Our conclusion is essentially. The we think it's complicated and amazing to think about the implications of vengeance in this story and how it defines everything and how it also burns everything right lane. That's kind of how it is with revenge. That's why a lot of people safe forgiveness isn't for them it's for you..
