A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/8/23
"Live or Memorex, that is the great Minnie Riperton. You were 15, Mike. Remember that on the radio? I do remember that. Loving you. The Tweety Birds in the background made it an easy song to make fun of. It seemed like a very shallow lyric to me. Loving you is easy because you're beautiful. I know. Is that really where you want to... That's it? I mean, how shallow and superficial are you? What if you got like a big old mole on your cheek? Bad skin. Dermatological. Anyway, the great Minnie Riperton would have been 76 today. Famous, famous daughter, do you know? The gal from Saturday Night Live? Yes, the wonder, wonderful comic actress Maya Rudolph. Maya Rudolph. I was forgetting her first name. Bridesmaids, dude. Oh my gosh. If you're ever in a bad mood, you rent bridesmaids. Just watch Bridesmaids. That's a little crass, a little crude, especially the bridal shop suite. Oh, it's happening. It's happening. It's happening. Look away. Look away. In the middle of the street with a digestive issue. Oh my goodness. Hey, listen, I've got digestive issues this morning after. I didn't know what my expectations were. They were not high. It's Ohio and you figure, well, maybe they're not up for baby killing, but they were. And I think that the weed vote, the legal pot vote brought out all the young stupid people and that's how you get your abortion advocacy in Ohio. Listen, let me just let you talk because as pro -lifers, we've got a lot of work to do. We have a lot of work to do and that's why tonight's debate is part of the process. We're in the spin room right now and I'm just getting ready for interesting dueling events. You've got Trump down the street in Hialeah. You have five candidates on this stage tonight and I hope that they bring this up. I hope they bring up the abortion problem that the Republican Party has and that's all anybody's talking about. What do you want them to say? Well, we have to say something differently because every single election has gone down in flames since Roe v. Wade was overturned. And we got a battle going on within the party and I want to give you a little preview tonight because I got a chance to visit with Hugh Hewitt last night. He gave me some tips about what to look for as he's been here in preparation. He's one of the moderators. Salem Media Group, our parent company, is the official radio partner along with NBC, Rumble, and the Republican Jewish Coalition for tonight's third GOP presidential debate and five candidates are going to be on that stage. One thing I know for sure, they're going to have a decidedly somber tone tonight. They're going to be serious. We know with Hamas and the war in Israel and, frankly, with the shellacking that the GOP took last night, particularly in Virginia, Republicans have a ton of work to do. And the abortion problem has to be dealt with. There's no way around it. You can stomp your feet and you can say, I'm a proud pro -life American and I'm not going to bend or you're going to never win another election again. Abortion is winning for the Democrats, Mark. Now, those of you who say I'm pro -life and I'm not going to give an inch, I respect it. I admire it. I wish I wish the world worked that way. I'm sickened to say this. America's in love with abortion in this country. Find somebody in your life to love you the way Democrats love abortion. And increasingly, non -ideological folks in the squishy, mushy middle, they just flip a coin and go, all of the things being equal. I want abortion. Right. That's where we have a lot of work to do. And brow beating those people isn't going to work anymore, Mark, sitting around calling them baby killers, et cetera, et cetera. No, it just isn't going to work. Well, no, but it is what the procedure is. But I don't ever want to antagonize people. And I know you're right. In fact, let me let you finish, because I just want to see if you're wanting our Republican field to simply be demonstrably less pro -life to say, you know what, maybe we do need to allow more abortions in the following way, because I don't – No, I think I really do believe it comes down to the messaging. I don't know that Republicans – first of all, millions and millions of dollars of outside money were poured into Ohio last night by radical abortionists who convinced women that you're losing a fundamental right if you vote no on this horrific, radical – I mean, abortion now in Ohio is legal literally to the moment of conception. And in fact, parents now – Moment of birth. Moment of birth, I mean. And incidentally, parents don't even have a say in a minor child's decision to abort a baby. Now, you've got to give an okay to get a tattoo in Ohio. Yeah, exactly. Get a Tylenol in your high school. That's right. But not to get an abortion. But we lost. We got thumped on this. We got thumped on this. And we've gotten thumped on it every single time, Mark. It's not a close call. Something isn't working and Democrats are going to embrace this going into 2024. Does that mean you become decidedly pro -life? Well, I think for starters, you change the messaging as best you can. But I'm afraid that the answer you're not going to want to hear is, yeah, probably so. In 10 seconds, I think you meant decidedly pro -choice. No. Decidedly – do we become decidedly less pro -life? Yeah, less pro -life. Yeah. Do we become decidedly less pro -life? And that's the horrific reality of – how many times is it going to have to happen, Mark? How many times are we going to say, well, we're losing another election. We've lost every single election on the abortion issue since Roe v. Wade was overturned. And Mark, with all due respect, I love you. It's not just Democrats. It's not just squishy Republicans. It's women. It's women voters who believe they are – that somehow this right that is enshrined in the Constitution – oh, and oh, by the way, it's not – is being taken from them. And it's not – we just – we're not going to win by wagging our fingers at the people who don't see the world. You and I aren't where the country is on this, Mark. We're not. We are where conservatives are. And so the question becomes – and by the way, everything you've said is true and plausible and supportable. So, as we look at a presidential election and some folks on a debate stage tonight in a country where now it is left to the states, what Ohio did last night is precisely the way America goes in post -Roe v. Wade America. That's what we said we wanted. And we knew full well that there would be states that did things that we liked and states that did things that we didn't. How about if the candidates we have – and it's kind of interesting. I don't know how pro -life Chris Christie is. I know DeSantis is. I think Nikki Haley is. I sure know Tim Scott is. I think Vivek is. So should they express their – maybe satisfaction is the wrong word – their acceptance of post -Roe v. Wade America, where states are going to do what they wish to do and Ohio can do what they wish to do, but that they are going to continue to be a voice and use their presidential bully pulpit to say that protecting life is a better way, while saying that the states can do what they want to do? Well, I'm not going to be president of Ohio. I'm not going to be president of Nevada. I'm not going to be – etc. Go ahead. But that's happening. That's happening. Let me tell you. Well, let me break it to you. Roe v. Wade being overturned meant that states get to decide what to do. States are deciding what to do and they're pro -abortion. Yes. They are. Every single state. There's not a state that's deciding in favor of the pro -life movement. You know, you can say, well, we're the good conservatives in this. Except, except, except heartbeat bills, heartbeat bills, heartbeat bills in Florida, in Texas, in other states. So – Well, but that's not legislation that conflicts with what is perceived to be a woman's right to choose an abortion being taken from her. You're so right. I mean, Glenn Youngkin has floated the 15 -week idea. And let's talk about Glenn Youngkin, incidentally, because there were high hopes for Virginia. And hey, Virginia, we got our butts kicked. I mean, they flipped the legislature. They didn't even – in fact, that wasn't even on the radar. They were hoping – we were hoping that Glenn Youngkin would lead a flip of the Senate over there. They lost it all. They lost the whole state legislature. Guess what? Glenn Youngkin is no longer going to be considered a candidate for president. I've got a buddy here – Well, he never was. Well, but keep an eye on him. He's not – Not this year. I mean, does he have a future? Of course he does. Look at him at 2028. But I have a guy here, Alfredo Ortiz, who's a dear friend, the CEO of Job Creators Network, and he had a theory. In fact, he's going to be with me tomorrow here in Miami. They're sponsoring our broadcast from the post -debate spin room. Alfredo said, if Virginia has a huge night last night, Glenn Youngkin will throw his hat in the ring as the 11th -hour savior of the Republican Party. Wouldn't matter. There's no room. That would be – It's too late. That would be – It's too late. It wouldn't matter. But anyway, he got shellacked. I mean, it was a bad night for him. It was a bad night for the GOP, and there's no way around it. Hey, Tate Reeves is still governor of Mississippi, yay. We kept one. We got that. We got that. We got some – and Joe Biden is still dropping like a rock in all the polls. And Trump is rocking and rolling and continues to lead in five swing states. So there's just data all over the place that are mixed as to what 2024 is going to look like. But you get an interesting view at five people who really want to catch Trump, and not a single one of them probably will. But it'll be fun to watch anyway. What do you think happens tonight? Yeah, it'll be kind of – What's the headline? What do you think? I'm going to keep an eye on Chris Christie because I'm just praying he starts screaming at his own audience and they start booing him. Exactly. And they start throwing orange peels and banana peels at him. I mean, that thing in Orlando, I played that clip. I'm sure you did, too. Sure. Oh, my. Have you ever seen a public – And what's the word again? I'm sorry. Your failure to embrace the truth is – Reprehensible. Thank you. I keep going deplorable, but that was Hillary, and we'd see how great that worked out for her. No, no. Reprehensible. Reprehensible. When you're talking to your own people – Yes. And calling them reprehensible – The people you're trying to get to vote for you, ideally. Not a good look. And I think – and interestingly, Hewitt and I last night, we had a great Salem party. And listen, we're very proud of this. I mean, say what you will about the meaninglessness. It's a big deal for us. Of course it is. For Salem to partner with NBC, and Hugh's going to be on that stage. Which means at least one conservative will be asking questions. Exactly. While Kristen Welker asks everybody about January 6th, at least Hugh will be there. And let me give you a scoop. Hugh is exhausted. Last night was the ninth rehearsal they had for this debate. I said nine? How do you rehearse? What do you do? You put staffers up at various lecterns and have ads just to kind of get through the drill? They put a couple hundred people in the audience. They test these guys because he – and he said Lester Holt and Kristen Welker have been just pros. He said Kristen's kind of the new kid on the block, but Lester's a veteran journalist. But they've got to be ready for everything. I mean, Hugh's ready for eruptions from the audience and how do you handle that and how do you interact. Anyway, they've had nine rehearsals for tonight's debate. And also, Hugh gave me a scoop. He said, watch DeSantis' performance. He has just hired fairly recently one of the best debate preparers in the business. I don't – I forgot the guy's name. I'll try to get it. I think it's Brad. I could not care less. Well, I know. But it's – Binders don't matter. Prep doesn't matter. DeSantis is DeSantis and he's wonderful. He's not Trump. DeSantis' worst problem is that Trump exists. I'll never forget the caller or the person who tweeted or something said that the only problem with DeSantis is he was not the best president of my lifetime. And Trump was. Trump exists. There's nothing the matter with DeSantis. There's nothing wrong with Nikki Haley except she's the queen of forever war. You heard Nikki Haley the other day saying the people who will abandon Ukraine are the people who will give up on Israel. Shut up, man. That's not smart. That's not a smart thing. But I can't wait. I know it may not matter at all. It's half the interest if Trump were there. Trump will be there down the road in Hialeah, you said, right? Heavily Cuban -American population there. That's going to be fun. And he's loved in Hialeah. Well, we'll be in the Spin Room tonight beginning about 6 p .m. Central Time. We'll have pre -debate coverage. Let's watch you. Let's watch you. Tell everybody how to watch you. Well, listen to us on the radio. I'm pretty sure we'll be on AM 660 The Answer tonight. As the radio partners, we're going to be here at 6 p .m. prior to the debate. The debate will be aired live and then I'll be in the Spin Room post -debate, hopefully talking to all the candidates or many of them in the Spin Room here. And you could also watch us on Salem News Channel pre - and post -debate. So it's going to be a big night, you know? And we're ready to go. And then I'll be back tomorrow here in Miami with you to wrap everything up. Is that room? Because it's funny, we've all done conventions, like convention coverage and the entire week of doing broadcasting from a convention. And the morning after the convention is like done, you and I still have shows to do. But all you can hear is the pipes and the drapes and just the clang, clang. I will not be here. As the trucks are off. But what in the world is that room, that beautiful room you're in? I won't know. It's beautiful now. It'll be rock and roll and post -debate. What's that thing? Are you just going to be run over by workers and forklifts tomorrow? I won't know because I'm not going to be here. I'll be at Salem, Miami. I'm going to be a few miles away at a nice comfy radio studio. There you go. We'll be at the Salem Radio Miami studio. Excellent. That's a very smart decision. I'll see you tomorrow, my friend. Here we go. We're ready for you. It's a big day and night of Mike. Can't wait for his show. The next up, the first thing you need to consume is Mike's own radio program. And that's at 10.

I'm comfortable with it, but if it comes to saving real money and having cutting edge technology and getting a free phone, I'm very comfortable with that too, aren't you Mr. Producer? Alright, yesterday on Capitol Hill, you know I've told you before, the late great Senator Paul Axel, he was a Senator from Nevada, he'd been a Governor before that. He was the closest politician to Ronald Reagan. They had neighboring states that were Governors at the same time. And he would confide in Laxhall, and Laxhall would confide in him. Just a terrific man, and he and I became very, friendly, very he became a mentor to me, and he's passed away since, but just a great guy, Adam Laxhall, fantastic as his grandson by the way. You have this guy, Representative Dan Goldman, Dan, excuse me, Goldman. Dan Goldman was in the US Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York, and this tells me that the quality and level of professionalism intelligence and in that office isn't what it's claimed to be. It is very low. Goldman is another detestable hack, his entire purpose for existing as a member of Congress is to run interference for the Democrat Party mob, and you know what, I shouldn't even call them the mob. The mob is more honest and less damage to our country systemically than the Democrat Party. The biggest enemy we have really is the Democrat Party as an institution. That's why I wrote the book about it. And by the way Mr. Producer, remind everybody and can we post a place where people can go to get a signed edition. We're running out of books and we're running out of time for the holidays. Can you post that and then remind that is?

Capstone's Jared Asch Talks Innovative Economic Development With Ron Gerber
"Welcome to The Capstone Conversation. I'm your host, Jared Ash. Today, I'm joined by Ron Gerber. Ron is a former Economic Development Director, and he has worked in a number of cities throughout the Bay Area, Emeryville, Novato, Walnut Creek, South City, and Vallejo. I like the mix that he's worked in. He's worked in high -end shopping. He's worked in places that are industrial cities, bringing in new biotech, new technology companies, but also trying to keep their industrial base in those cities. We're going to hear an interesting perspective today on economic development. Welcome, Ron. Why don't you tell us a little bit more about your background? Yeah, thank you, Jared. Thank you for inviting me here today. Yeah, sure. The number of cities you mentioned all over the Bay Area, very diverse, which gave me a lot of experience that I'm happy to share with you today about kind of lessons learned and best practices. And let's start chronology. So during the nineties, I worked for Emeryville for about 12 years, and it led to a lot of very innovative practices at the time. We were one of the first to have an affordable housing ordinance, strong public art component, but we also had a city that was respecting its old industrial heritage, but also trying to transition to the next century. And we learned to do a lot of special outreach and work with the community to get results. Like for example, we got the first IKEA store in Northern California to go to an old steel mill site. I was in a couple of small meetings with Steve Jobs that eventually he and our team led to him moving the Pixar Computer Animation Studios to an old cannery site. Also north of IKEA was an old industrial patch that had 52 chemicals of concern. That was, we had to go through the remediation site assembly. That eventually became an urban mixed use town center with multiplex theater, restaurants, and about two over 200 housing units above the stores. It was mixed use, entertainment, living, and a whole variety of uses that really helped other businesses that want to locate there as well, bakeries. And the other thing it also, for example, when you have those businesses with strong biotechnics, that was also an Emeryville, led to other biotechs to be a catalyst. Similar Pixar, to that computer animation studio led to other animation spinoffs and businesses located there. So that was something, a lot of good lessons learned there, but one of the, one of the cornerstones of all that was having community support. The community embraced transitioning from an old industrial enclave while respecting the businesses and the employment base. How do we integrate that and transition with new uses, such as mixed use and housing? Then there, from spent about a decade in the city of Nevada, 15 miles north of there, helping transition the 600 acre military base Hamilton field, but also helping to transform the downtown, which is also very exciting. And there were some good lessons learned there too. And we want to talk about the downtown for a second. It was a very sleepy downtown, pretty much closed its doors at about 5 .30 most nights. But there was some areas that really needed to be upgraded. And I know there's a lot of discussion that's trying about what can we get to anchor the downtown to get things popping on our sleepy main street, seven block main street. A lot of discussion about maybe a movie theater or some other dynamic project. But at the same time, we listened to the community. They wanted a couple of grocery stores, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods were at the top of initial to become an anchor. And most people would say, is it a grocery store, kind of an unusual type of retailer, you get to anchor downtown. And when you think about it, depending upon what your downtown community wants, it can be a tremendous anchor. It was at the far end, the east end of its downtown, and it actually led to a mixed use project with Whole Foods as a ground floor and over 120 housing units on top of it. But one of the things that was so important about a grocery store is in a sleepy downtown at the time, most of those small independent mom and pops closed around 5 .30. And so the restaurants couldn't, they got by. Well, how can you extend the hours? You get an anchor like Whole Foods that's maybe open from eight in the morning till 10 at night, all of a sudden you've expanded something that's doing a 14 hour day instead of eight and a half. See, and a grocery store in like a movie theater or something like that, how often you go to the movies compared to grocery store. So it creates a lot of dynamic projects, daytimes, evenings, weekends, compared to movie theater, which may have weekends and occasional weeknight evenings. When you think about it, frequent shoppers, a lot of traffic, you're going to get a lot of people going to downtown that ordinarily wouldn't go there,

What YOU Can Do to Fight the Proposed Heat Ordinance in Miami Dade
"The most important thing that we need people to do is call their commissioners. Okay. And before the only voices that were being heard were the WeCount voices and the labor, you know, organization. They were the ones calling. And they need to call every single commissioner and ask them to vote no on the heat ordinance. Okay. We have a list, guys, that's been provided. We're going to probably, Eddie, you think we can put that down in the bio or down underneath in the description? Every single commissioner's number and name? Name, number and email addresses. And, you know, I know we're a text and email kind of society, but the phone calls matter. Like take the time, you know, at this point they're asking just for, are you opposed or for it? So it, you know, it shouldn't take you more than 25 minutes to call all of them. It's really important to get those phone calls out. The second thing that we'll, you know, put in the description is a link for a petition. That is something that, you know, we do have commissioners that are standing behind us, right. And that see this for what it is. And so they, I think that for them, it's important to see the amount of support that this opposition has, you know, it's kind of a double negative for them to understand that that people are opposed to this. Yeah. There's a large amount of people that are against it. Yeah. Because this at the end of the day is catastrophic for this industry and it'll drive a lot of people out of this industry. You know, people are paycheck to paycheck. Most, you know, I would say 50 % of the industry is struggling right now. Rents went up, everything. And now you throw this on top. As owners of businesses. I mean, if we're going to get sued just because someone's upset or they get out. Or we didn't call them every two hours. Right. And then they turn us in, then we get the fines for that many people in the field. And then you get the lawsuits. I mean, who wants to stay in business in Miami -Dade County when you have that happening? No, no one will. And by the way, if you're a landscaper and you're kind of sitting there being like, I'm good. They're next. You're next. No, and it's not just that. This is not where it's going to end. No, but this is how it affects. So how does it affect you? So you're a landscaper. How does it affect you? I'm good. I don't have any worries. Yeah, you do. Because where are you going to buy the plants to make the installs? They're going to be more expensive. Where are you going to get them at? Or where are you going to get them? So that's something to think about too. So if you're listening and you're like, oh, I'm good. Call for your buddy that has a nursery, that you love them, that you guys have a great relationship, that you buy the product off of them. Call for him and make that happen. Yeah, agriculture and construction are two of the biggest industries in this county. So again, everybody should care about this. Everybody. Everybody should care about this because it affects the overall. It'll put a halt on construction, which good and bad for some people, depending on what side you sit on. But they could put a massive halt. It could put a massive halt. And then why is it just these two industries? Why? It's very discriminatory because of just being agriculture and construction. Yeah, there's a lot of other industries. You're a car wash. You do the car detailing, boat detailing. You know, there's an array. You're a fisherman. Now you got to make sure you look over to chip, you know, that's there, bait in the line for you and tell them, hey, give me some water or drink some water. It's discriminatory towards these two industries. And one other point to make is that OSHA is actively addressing new standards or revised standards, let's say, for heat that would apply nationwide. Like OSHA do their jobs. Do you guys know if there's these ordinances in other states like Arizona, like Texas that get way hotter than we do? There are. It's either six or seven states that have them. And I'm going to rattle off a few of them, Washington State, California, Nevada, Minnesota, and I think New Mexico. So generally Western states and all of those states work together with their local OSHA. So they don't have a regulatory scheme or the fine structure that this has. They piggyback off of the already existing OSHA fines. So what I love about this is there's a lot of you guys involved that are really high ups and all these organizations that are, you know, fighting against this for us. Guys, they're fighting against it for these industries. They're basically our voice that's out there trying to make it right. It's like, we're not against it a hundred percent, but we are against all these fine print things that do not make any sense. And we already have things implemented. So I'm just very glad that we have people like you that have dedicated so much time because you guys, I'm sure you dream about this at this point. They're not called dreams though. Yeah, they're not dreams. You don't dream. They're called nightmares. They're called nightmares, you know, of just all of this stuff and how this can just really ratify the whole industry and the whole county. You know, I don't think they understand to what extent it can be taken and how drastic of ordinance it is when you read the fine print. And we all love our employees. We want our employees to thrive. We want them to be landlords one day and own real estate and climb up the ladder. And they got to buy plants. We love it. But it can be done if there's walls that are bigger than we can climb, put in front of us, it's easier to just cash out and leave. And it's going to put, it will put a lot of people out of business. I see that. Yeah, I agree. But it's just a form of control and coming in and looking over your shoulder. It's like a big brother just watching everything you do. And next time they're going to be telling us how to go to the bathroom. For me, the commissioners, it's like, guys, you guys worked so hard to make Miami -Dade County what it is today to get the richest people from all over the world to come to Miami and start up their business. We have Amazon here. We have so much going on, so much power. You have people doing high rises. We have a billion dollar bridge being built. And now you want to do this. That's going to really, and construction and agriculture. I mean, agriculture did $36 .4 billion last year in the state of Florida. And a lot of it came from here. It's a bad look for the county. But it's like, we take 20 steps up and then now we get hit 19 back. Same thing with what happened with the labor. It's like, come on guys, wake up, smell the coffee. This is not good

A highlight from Real Estate Market (Crashing)? Price Reduction Scripts & Systems
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money, and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. And we are back. Now we're going to be really drilling down over the next five podcasts on pricing listings to sell, but also getting price reductions. There's a lot of technique to the things we're going to be sharing with you guys. A lot of scripts, a lot of systems. It's very important that you use the notes that are below. Obviously we try to, I think almost always put all of our notes, right Julie? In the show description below. So scroll down, all the notes are there and we're going to be really getting into the weeds with all of you so that frankly you can start pricing your listings to sell. If you have listings now that are overpriced, then you can get them repositioned on the market so they correctly reflect the market's expectations. That was a script. Did you write it down? Snuck that in on them, didn't you? I did. And when your hunting expires, as all of you will be doing, you're also going to be knowing how to get the prices adjusted accordingly so the properties will sell. So this week is very intense, really focused on pricing properties to sell because it is going to become very, very tricky in many markets. Now I'm going to start out with a little bit of, we need to I think have a common understanding of the difference between value and price. And I'm reading your notes and I see what you're about to talk about so I think this will fit in perfectly. It's a good intro. Right. Well, we'll see. Back to you. Yeah, exactly. So I was thinking about this last night, how to explain. So Julie and I, when we socialize with people and go to parties and just talk with all of you guys, just run across everyone. People make the mistake constantly of saying there's some sort of or alluding to or believing that there's some sort of big price or value erosion that's going on. Value erosion, not price erosion. Value versus price. That's where I'm going with all this. Because back in 2007, 8, and 9, there was value erosion. The values of the properties actually dropped below what people paid for them. So there's a difference between pricing and value. So get this clear in your head and then I think it'll give your mind room to be open to the thoughts that we're going to be sharing with you in a second. So if you have, like I'll give you an example, Julie and I had, let's say if we had a car for sale and let's say we put the car for sale for 50 grand and even though the market tells us that the car is worth 30 grand, like every single comp, every single thing that's out there is telling us that car is not worth 50, it's worth 30, right? You guys with me so far? And then we eventually, in order to get the car sold, we have to adjust the price down to 30. Did we lose 20 grand or did we just finally price the house correctly? Do you guys get the difference? And so what a lot of people are believing is because they have to price their properties correctly that the properties have lost value. No, they didn't. They lost value maybe in your head, right? They didn't actually lose value. The difference between, so for example, if we'd bought that car for 30 grand, let's say, and we were selling it for 15 grand, then yeah, we lost 15 grand. That's like what was happening in 2007, 2008, 2009, well, mostly seven and eight. The definition of a short sale, you're selling it for less than you owe. Well short sale, you're selling it for less than you owe, or exactly, assuming you owe like you just said. So yeah, so that's the whole moral of the story here. So please don't think this is anything like the previous market, which I'm teeing you up perfectly. Exactly. As we have said, pricing is the hot topic all week because it's a big hairy topic. We'll take a look at the factors causing price reductions, what to do from a listing agent's perspective, as well as what to do when you're representing a buyer. And we're going to dive into some price reduction scripts and give you the confidence you need to navigate the changing market. So let's first take a look at what's happening to prices right now. And no, by saying that, we are not talking about the market crashing. Just as Tim said, the market is not crashing, it is simply normalizing. So here are the facts, hot off the presses. Nationwide, one in every 15 listings had a price reduction in the past 30 days. That's about six and a half of active list, six and a half percent of active listings in the country. However, some markets have seen 50 % of active listings get a price reduction in the past 30 days. So let's compare those two. Nationwide, it averages out to six and a half percent of actives got a price reduction last month. But there are many markets that it's quite a bit more severe. But so what this is, when you see this kind of statistic, we've seen this before. Julie and I have been doing this for decades. And what this is kind of a, I don't even want to, I don't want to be overly critical, but this is essentially sellers who have unrealistic expectations as far as what their homes are worth. We call it aspirational pricing. And frankly, this is evidence of agents that don't know how to actually properly price properties. In other words, they're just taking the listing at an elevated price. Maybe they don't know how to go about setting the price correctly in the first place, or maybe they don't want to, they don't have the skill set being blunt to get the property priced correctly in the first place. So when you see these kinds of widespread statistics and especially something like 6%, which is a pretty meaningful number, honestly, when you see numbers like that, that is essentially the market still adjusting to the new reality. That's the sellers adjusting to the new reality. And that's also the agents having to learn how to adjust to the new reality. And then, you know, doctor filling their sellers, you know, learning how to write exactly this, this type of information. When you see these types of statistics, this is 100 % proof that the market is still very much adjusting. Now, also taking the time, you know, take when you're considering all this, what time of year it is, what's the, you know, what's interest rates are doing. And so these types of things in a cyclically adjusting market, the numbers will go up and down pretty radically pretty fast. So just adjust accordingly. This information is as of two days ago. That's right. Now, the five metro areas with the highest percentage of listings that got price cuts, this is the percentage of listings that had a price reduction. When I give you these stats, these percentages, that doesn't mean they're coming down by that percent. That's just the percent of overall actives that had to have a price reduction. So that's Wenatchee, Washington State, Idaho Falls, Idaho, Carson City, Nevada, and Austin, Round Rock area, and Waco, Texas. Those were all in the 50 to 54 percent of active listings came down. Again, that doesn't mean they came down by 50 percent. It just means half of the actives had a price reduction. Now she took that sort of sampling because obviously price reductions were happening all over the country, but she was using that to show the fact that it's happening in these completely different unrelated markets. That's right. So unlike before, you know, when the market was super hot for several years, kind of the whole country moved about the same way. We were all going rapidly up in price. We all had multiple offers basically on anything. All it had to do was be available. Well, now we're seeing markets kind of stretch apart, and what's happening in the ones I just rattled off is different than, say, Florida, which still is pretty strong. So you have to know your actual market. Now, this is all happening, all these price reductions are all happening at the same time that prices are still up by at least 3 percent this year and are expected to end up averaging about 5 percent higher by year's end. This figure shows you that we are normalizing, not crashing. A crash would not have price increases. Okay, so that's worth, we really need to drill down on that. So listen to what Julie just said, be very, very clear in your head. There were no price increases, there were no value increases that were happening, it was value basically, that were happening during 2007, 2008, quite the opposite, right? Properties in some markets dropped by, you know, 40 plus percent. That is not what we're experiencing. Year over year, what Julie just explained to all of you guys, is that in many markets prices went up, values of properties went up by at least 5 percent. So despite what the headlines and all the click -baity things on all the news channels and all the rest of it are leading you to believe about real estate, guess what? If you own a home, it went up by probably at least 5 percent this year. Exactly. Okay, now, remember, again, we're proving the point that we are adjusting and normalizing, not crashing. Remember this, at $52 trillion, the total value of homes in the U .S. is up, get this, 49 percent since before the pandemic. That truly is insane. Yes, 49 percent. So these price adjustments won't be catastrophic to most sellers. We're a very long way away from short sales, so don't go thinking the sky is falling. Okay, so again, worth drilling down. Prices are up by almost 50 percent in the last... It's since 2019. Now what you're seeing now with the price adjustments or the price reductions essentially that many markets are now experiencing, remember that you still had 5 percent increase in value in the last 12 months. So you're looking at properties in many markets that have increased by at least 50 percent since 2019? Yeah, since pre -pandemic. Okay, so that is a substantial massive increase. Now, the value of those properties, there's no reason to believe, and it's incredibly important you're really clear in your head about this, that the values of the homes are going to somehow regress back into say 2019 values. And I read that sometimes from people that are, I don't want to come off overly negative, but they really piss me off because they don't use any real factual information. No, they're only using their thought that, well, you know, prices were going really high in and 2006 5, and so then there was a crash, and since prices have gone up, there must be a crash. That's not based on any underlying factors. It's just basically, well, that's what it did before, that's what it's going to do now. It's basically yo -yo thinking about, you know, there's going to be another bubble that's going to burst. There's no reason to believe that's true. The same people who've been predicting that since, again, 2019, they've been wrong year after year after year after year, and they're going to continue to be wrong because nothing is the same as it was back in 2007. Well, that's why we're facting them, right? Okay, so look at the runway, though. Okay, so a 49 % increase since pre -pandemic, and you know, the average, and not every single listing is having a price reduction, but when they do, they're still only coming down by less than 5 % on average, so you've got that remaining, you know, 44 % left to go before you're even Steven with 2019. There's just so much runway there. Now, are there isolated instances where people refinanced, took a bunch of equity out, didn't have a very big down payment in the first place, and maybe are behind on payment, and that makes them even very, very, very randomly, literally less than, I think it's like 3 .5 % of the market of closings were even short sales. So along those lines, again, you'll have this memorized because that is what you do. Possibly. We'll see. No, she will. You watch, listeners. So what percent of all home inventory is distressed? almost It's like 4%, but it's less than 4 % overall. Which is a record low for what period of time? Forever. Yeah. Literally forever. It is a record low since they started recording it, I think back in the 80s. You remember when all the - And actually, it's gone down. It was a previous low, and it's actually gotten lower in the past quarter. Remember when all the naysayers were saying, well, when the COVID - Forbearances. Forbearances. There was going to be a foreclosure wave. There's one thing after another, after another, after another. Okay. So the forbearance naysayers, there's going to be this awful backup of foreclosures due to forbearances. Well, they also said there would be a silver tsunami when all the baby boomers just had to sell their houses all of a sudden. And they also thought there would be an Airbnb bust. And now the new thing is, as soon as somebody has to make their student loan payments, well, that means they're going to miss their mortgage payments from one drama to the next, but not based on facts, which we like to sprinkle upon you. Again, the reason that we're so adamant about you guys getting these facts and the reason that we spend so much time on this podcast and our coaching program to make sure you have the actual information is because if you operate with bad information, you're going to then pass that bad information along to your customers. You're then going to, you know, it always comes down to the same thing. If you don't believe that tomorrow is going to be better than today, you're not going to take the actions today that would have made tomorrow better than today. In other words, if you believe the sky is falling, you're sure as hell not going to do what you don't want to do when you don't want to do at the highest level, you're not going to learn to price properties correctly. You're not going to learn how to get prices, you know, lower prices on homes. Why would you bother after all tomorrow? It's going to be, you know, some sort of, you know, locust apocalypse, so you're never actually going to make tomorrow better than today. So that's really the reason that you want to purge from your mind all of these naysayers, all of these snake oil salesmen that are trying to sell you into the belief that there's any sort of anything other than frankly, amazing things that are going to happen in the real estate markets. And here's a little foreshadowing, and we're working on a podcast about this. If you look purely at the demographics of what the United States is experiencing over the next 20, 30 years, it's extraordinary and it's going to do nothing but maybe even increase the demand for housing by something like five to seven X. So that's how many home sales and how much new construction is going to have to be built just to meet demand and it's going to be built and that demand will be met and you are going to be a beneficiary of that provided that you are taking the right steps now to, you know, stay relevant in the real estate. That's right. And provided that you make it through this next three to six months because it is going to be more challenging than you're used to. That's why we're talking about price reductions because we've seen, you know, we've gotten texts, we've seen videos online, we've seen stuff on social media where agents were losing their minds over having to do price reductions, hearing about price reductions, having to ask a seller to come down.
Fresh "Nevada" from Evening News with Art Sanders
"Memphis otherwise cloudy high 70. That's the nation's weather. I'm Accuweather .com meteorologist Carl Budinski. I'm John Trout. This is America in the Morning. It's 16 after. Two Nevada State Troopers are dead after they were killed while helping a motorist on the side of an interstate highway in Las Vegas early Thursday morning. Pamela Fuhr tells us the hit and run driver was later found by police and he believe may have been under the influence at the time of the crash. Las Vegas Metro Police say the two troopers were checking on a driver they thought may have been asleep along Interstate 15 when a white Chevy SUV into slammed them. Then the Chevy took off. Police say the troopers were thrown into the air when they were hit and onto the road below the interstate. One died at the scene. The other was taken to the hospital where he later died under Sheriff Andrew Walsh. When this tragic incident occurred this morning, we immediately mobilized all the investigative resources at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to find person the responsible for this tragedy and bring them to justice. Now, Las Vegas police say it is still an ongoing investigation. Do not believe the troopers were targeted. They are waiting to determine if the driver of the van was drunk or high at the time of the incident. I'm Pamela Ferrer. Montana's first in the nation ban on the popular Chinese made app TikTok is now temporarily blocked. Correspondent Lisa Dwyer has more on the story. A federal judge has blocked Montana's first in the nation state law banning the video sharing app TikTok while a legal challenge to the law moves through the courts. The judge says the ban oversteps state power and infringes on the constitutional right of users and businesses. The ban, which was scheduled to take effect January 1st, was first brought before the Republican controlled Montana legislature a few weeks after a Chinese spy by balloon flew over the state. Western governments have expressed worries that the popular social media platform could put sensitive data into the hands of the Chinese government. Chinese law allows the Chinese government to order companies to help it gather intelligence. TikTok welcomed the In sports this is week 13 of 18 in the NFL in Thursday Night Football.

A highlight from 1260. Stand With Crypto! | DO THIS NOW Before It's Too Late!
"All right, so we've got a lot happening in the area of regulation, and one of the things we'll be covering today is talking about Coinbase and their whole Stand With Crypto campaign. You guys are going to like this one, and it will also help you guys make your step into supporting the crypto events that are happening and, of course, the regulation itself. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back to Tech Path. All right, so let's get into it today. I want to go into a couple of topics. This is all going to be about Coinbase and what they're doing to essentially fight for our rights to basically own and operate crypto. But before we get started, I do want to thank our sponsor, and today that is Tangem. If you guys are looking at doing self -custody, this is one of the tools you can do it with. They have a really interesting concept around self -custody. One of course, it's an NFC card. It has an app related to it, and it's very easy to use. So make sure and check out their website. If you go and decide to get one of these wallets, make sure and get the new card. This one comes out in October. There's a lot of new features and benefits. Check their Twitter for a lot of the updates. But you do get that one, and you can get the additional discount by just using our link down below. So make sure and check that out. It does help the channel out. All right, so let's get into a couple of topics today. One of the points I want to hit on is this right here, is that with regulatory scenarios really starting to heat up, the SEC has basically put out another shot across the bow, saying crypto chiefs now warns more charges coming to exchanges. And a couple of things that I think we have to be aware of is just how much the SEC is doing right now in terms of the major exchanges. The major exchanges, obviously we know about Coinbase and Binance. But what others are they trying to go into? Will we start to see actions in everything from KuCoin, etc., to potentially cause some more challenges in the exchange wars against the SEC? And the other aspect that you have to think about on this is the component around the regulation. All of this regulation is brewing now. We are in the heat of a lot of regulation coming up. In fact, right here, if you look at Patrick McHenry's website, I'll show you guys some of the bills that are going in front of a vote right now. The Power of the Mint Act, CBDC Anti -Surveillance State Act, and the Digital Dollar Prevention Act. This is basically all anti -CBDC. All of this, of course, will be going in for votes very quickly. We're going to try to do a video for you guys to cover this and give you the results of this as it starts to resolve here. So lots happening there around legislation. Now with legislation comes you and me going out and really letting our state representatives, our congressmen and women understand our position. I think one of the tools that I have found that is pretty effective is what Coinbase has done. So it's a call to action mobilizing 52 million crypto owners into an army of 1 million advocates for change. And I think if we get that many advocates for change and create enough awareness, I think this is definitely a significant program. Now what they've done is they're going after some key states here. And this will be Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and of course, Wisconsin. These are key states in all of the primaries. And of course, in most cases, contribute a lot toward the potential next president. So this is a big deal of where this is going to be going on stand with crypto. So earlier this year, they took this research project on 87 percent of Americans believe the financial system needs changing. OK, I would agree with that. 51 percent of Americans believe that America's financial system does not work fairly for everyone. And I think that would make sense based on just the demographic cut that we're already starting to see. And then 63 percent of crypto owners agree that the system unfairly favors powerful interest. That I think has been all about the evolution of what's happened here in America, especially on the business interest side. Forty percent of those who own digital assets do not do so to remit money across borders to help family members. So this is another thing that a lot of people are utilizing this to really handle their everyday function of just being able to support families outside the United States. This is a big deal. 72 percent of the 18 to 34 is believe crypto gives people direct control over their money. This is another area that is going to be very interesting for a lot of our lawmakers. And the reason is because when you look at the 18 to 34, this essentially is the next demographic that's going to run the country. It's also the next demographic that is going to do most of the powerful purchasing for companies etc. We talked to a lot of brands and this is a big category in terms of demographic. 52 million Americans own crypto. There's some of the data that they pulled from this research. Five times more than own an EV. That's pretty interesting.

A highlight from THOUGHTCRIME Ep. 13 Willard Romney's Revenge? Dems Legitimizing Prostitution? Oliver The Fake?
"Hey, feeling unsure about your finances these days? You're not alone. That's why Noble Gold Investments is here to help. Just hear it straight from the people who they've helped. The Noble crew walked me through everything with no stress. With their help, I could finally sleep easy at night. And now this month, Noble Gold Investments is handing out a free 5 -ounce silver America the Beautiful coin if you qualify for an IRA. Invest in gold and silver with Noble Gold Investments. Go to noblegoldinvestments .com right now. That is noblegoldinvestments .com right now. Hey, everybody. Happy Saturday. Thought Crimes. I joined late to this because I was at our Pastor Summit. But Andrew, Blake, and Jack carry the water for the first part of the episode. Talk about Mitt Romney. Talk about the Virginia Hooker. And then we also talk about Oliver Anthony, who I call a ginger Bernie Sanders with a banjo. Thought Crimes, where we say things that you're not even allowed to think in Western society. This is your warning. I'm just warning you that, yes, there is things in this episode that are not always appropriate for homeschoolers. Email us as always freedom at charliekirk .com and get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up, everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tonight's edition, this week's edition of Thought Crime. Are you ready to commit thought crime? Because we've got a lot. Let's go around the horn. I'm not even sure because we got a lot of craziness going on right now. Our gas prices are up almost a full dollar here since last week, almost. And I was in California about a week ago. And I think are you guys hitting about six, almost $6 a gallon right now? Yeah, we are. Yeah, it's about five. How do you do it? I mean, honestly, Santa Barbara is a small town, so we don't drive a whole bunch. We don't feel it as much as probably like, you know, our Los Angeles friends. But I mean, at the end of the day, I mean, California is and actually this, this includes Arizona, Nevada, I believe, Washington and Oregon are considered the same sort of gas island. So they are as it has to do with where the oil comes from. It has to do with where they're getting refined. California has all these special additives and regulations that the refineries, these these benchmarks that refineries need to hit. So it can only come from certain refineries. So it limits the supply even more. It's a whole problem. So Charlie will be here in a little bit. He's at the Pastor Summit right now. He's dealing with some stuff. He's taking care of business on assignment, of course, for Turning Point USA, the faith coalition. But we're here. We're going to hold down the fort until Charlie returns. So shoot us your emails freedom at Charlie kirk .com. Let's get into the first topic here. This one, I think we've all talked about it, but we haven't all mentioned it together. This one, the the revenge or should we say the elegy for Willard Romney? Willard Mitt Romney has announced he's quitting the Senate total rage quit right before the 2024 election. So he's going to serve out the remainder of his term. And of course, as befits his character, he's riding off into the sunset by having the globalists at the Atlantic publish a completely obnoxious passive aggressive interview, trashing his colleagues, trashing Trump, trashing the GOP base. So what is the final word on the GOP 2012 standard bearer, the man who was the nominee for president in 2012? And, Blake, I think you actually have an excerpt from the from this article that's by McKay Coppins in the Atlantic. Oh, well, yeah, exactly, Jack. It's it's amazing. So, of course, he's everything about Romney is, you know, the supposed like, you know, politeness and decorum and all the damage that Trump does to our democracy by being always the last Boy Scout. Yeah, yeah, the last Boy Scout. So naturally, what he does is he announces he's retiring. And then, you know, in perfect timing with it, McKay Coppins has this biography that he's putting out that's, you know, all about Romney and has all these like data points in it. And he's basically just like Romney doing like a drive by shooting on other members of the Republican Party as he leaves. Let's see, like one of the lines from it. This is a summary as Axios summarizes it helpfully for us. Romney shares a unique disgust for senators Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas, who he thought were too smart to believe Trump won the 2020 election. But, quote, put politics above the interests of liberal democracy and the Constitution. And then the even wilder one is for Senator J .D. Vance of Ohio. He says, quote, I don't know that I can disrespect someone more than J .D. Vance. That is a direct quote from Senator Romney describing Senator Vance, who he still has to, you know, share a Senate chamber with for the next year before he actually quits. But, you know, J .D., I mean, can can someone explain what what what is J .D. Vance done in his time in the Senate that's been so ill reputable? It could. Does anyone have what when he went to East Palestine and it seems it seems his crime is that went on there? I'm trying to figure this out. It seems his crime is that, you know, J .D. Vance came out of Ohio. He went to Yale, I believe it was. And then he was in finance and was, you know, and then wrote his memoir, which was very well received. And he's this up and comer on the coast. And then I guess he moved back to Ohio, started doing too many appearances on Tucker Carlson tonight. And like, according to Romney, it was like the transformation was just was just too jarring, like it was too too much of a transformation for for Mr. Romney, who himself has basically transmuted into this like Democrat, I guess. But that doesn't count. This is an interesting this is an interesting take on on all of it. And Andrew, maybe you can give us a sense of it, because what I think that Romney is really upset about here is that he's considering J .D. Vance a class a class traitor. He's calling him a class traitor and saying, look, you're allowed to make money in finance. You're allowed to make go to Yale. You're allowed to go to the great schools. But the one thing and you're certainly allowed to run for the Senate. But the one thing you're not allowed to do is actually go out to the people of your state, listen to the their interests and listen to their issues and then grow and go and try to actually represent them in the United States Senate. This I is think class traitor. I think that's really smart framing, Jack, because at some level, a lot of this is much more about vibe. It's much more about what Mitt Romney thinks is classy versus gross or respectable versus, you know, essentially untoward and beyond the pale. Right. So it's all based on his own little framework of of class structure, of decorum, those sorts of things. So it says here in this, he says he was also highly critical of Senator J .D. Vance, Republican of Ohio, who reinvented his persona to become a Trump acolyte after publishing a bestselling memoir, Hillbilly Elegy about the working class that Romney loved. So Romney loved the book. So at some level, I think it was just like, so I love this book. And how can this kind of become like a Trump bootlicker? Go ahead. Right. So I can there's there and just real quickly, it's kind of like because in the book, J .D. Vance's conclusions, I would say I don't offer this as criticism. I just say it's sort of it's an evolution on J .D. Vance's part because he sort of just says in the book, well, that that sort of that blase classic Republican line of, you know, and everybody just needs to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. I can do it. So can you. And we should cut taxes for big businesses and the one percent pays most of the income tax and that that's kind of it. And then when he went to actually run for office and started really engaging with people politically, that's when he shifted, not socially. Right. But he shifted economically to become more of a populist. Blake, what you're saying? Well, what's so telling in this article is like some of the just a little specific anecdotes that it does pick. And I almost wonder if Coppins is like subtly trolling Romney. Apparently Romney lives by himself and his family in D .C. It mentions let me get let me get the line here. It talks about his his his pad that he lives in. And it says the place had not been Romney's first choice for Washington residents when he was elected in twenty eighteen. He'd had his eye on a newly remodeled condo at the Watergate with glittering views of the Potomac. His wife, Ann, fell in love with the place, but his soon to be staffers and colleagues warned him about the commute, which, by the way, it's like a mile and a half to the Capitol. So he grudgingly chose practicality over luxury and settled for the two point four million dollar townhouse instead. And then, of course, this is not good enough for for Ann. So she never visits him when he's in D .C. So it turns into a gross bachelor pad that has it mentions there's crumbs everywhere.
Caller: If Trump Can't Criticize People, Can He Praise Them?
"They're going to lose yeah no you're exactly right I mean it would he be allowed to say nice things about Jack Smith the special counsel so could he say nice things about the judge could he say wow you look lovely today your honor could he say that I wonder. I really doubt they even want to hear him make a peep at all they just want him to stand there quietly it reminds me of a person in the Bible that had to stand there quietly while they accused him of things and then of course and they nailed him to a cross but that's what's going to happen they just want to nail him to a cross and be done with them.

A highlight from CARPE CONSENSUS: How to 'Rage Quit' a DAO, Safely
"This is Carpe Consensus. Join hosts Ben Shiller and Danny Nelson as they seize the world of crypto. And hello and welcome to Carpe Consensus. This is a podcast from the Coindesk podcast network and I am Ben Shiller and I am the features editor here at Coindesk and joining me today is Danny Nelson. Hi Danny. Hello and I am not the features editor. I think I'm the managing editor of data and tokens but everything's always in flux here. Who knows? Maybe I'll just call me senior reporter Danny Nelson. You're pretty senior and an important figure here at Coindesk which is a ship that's still sailing along despite a few eruptions recently. How are you holding up Danny? You know I have this wonderful bottle of High West bourbon, not a sponsor of the show. Hopefully they'll become one one day. It's helping me get through these bear market blues I guess I could say. That's right. We've all got to struggle on intoxicating ourselves as best we can. Absolutely. So what do we have on the agenda this week Danny? Take us inside the newsroom. Well before we step inside the newsroom I want to step outside for a bit. I want to hear why you weren't here last week Ben. Oh good lord. Could you share with me in the audience what you were up to? Stuck in the mud maybe. I was actually on international news as it were attending what is known as Burning Man 2023 which is an annual event in the Nevada desert which was quite the escapade this year because of unseasonable rain falling there. First time in 24 years of that great event and it turned the plier as it's known into a quagmire which stopped all vehicles including the port -a -potty vans from coming on site and doing what they needed to do. We ran out of food, ran out of wi -fi and phone access and there was a potential Lord of the Flies situation. It didn't quite come to that but it was certainly a grueling and physically demanding experience although I had a great great great time and I would highly recommend the event to anyone if you've got the stomach for it. So Ben was this your first burn? It was my first burn yeah. Did you adopt a plier name? What was it? I was known as Shillington. So Shillington? Oh my god. You don't actually adopt a name. Someone has to give you the name and then you adopt it for yourself so you can't just call yourself Danny or something. Very good. Now Ben I hate to ask this but you know this is a crypto podcast at least by the name it is. Was there a big crypto scene there? Like how can you pay in Bitcoin if you have no wi -fi? Well first of all there is no money at all so everything is about gifting so you can go around for instance with your cup and get free drinks and free whatevers and there's no exchange of money. But there are a lot of crypto people there, a lot of crypto talks about blockchain decentralization and I actually saw a lot of similarities or parallels between crypto and the Burning Man ethos. It's very much hyper individualistic, it's about helping yourself, preserving yourself first before helping others and you've kind of got this hyper communitarian vibe as well which is very crypto as well. So I can see a lot of the values of Burning Man and crypto kind of intertwining which was interesting. Except for that part about no money right? Because crypto is all about new forms of money and Burning Man is about stepping away from that and becoming one with something different I think. I don't know, I've never been, I'd like to go. It's certainly very interesting yeah it's about you know hyper self -reliance, self -expression and inclusion and doing away with money although you know although there's no money it is quite capitalistic in terms of the exchange that's going on so it's like it is sort of a marketplace of innovators kind of swapping services and whatever with one another so that's kind of capitalistic. How many pairs of shoes did you lose in the mud? That's a good question. So I mean the mud was so deep that if you had a boot on as I did you kind of got you know a double boot as it were so it was like your boot and then kind of a foot of mud underneath and it was kind of impossible to walk anywhere because you would kind of get this kind of huge lump of muddy ply on your foot so it was real struggle to walk around so a lot of people just took to being barefoot or in kind of plastic bags around their feet so it was kind of easy to walk around like that. On the other hand it kind of brought everyone together you know so I mean people were sort of doing their own thing and partying, taking drugs and whatever and this sort of extreme event did kind of bring our camp and I think other camps together to kind of work through it so it was kind of interesting to see people in extreme circumstances and how they reacted and some people freaked out and some people worked and worked it out. Well, Ben, I have to say I'm very jealous of you. I really would like to get out to my first Burning Man. A cousin of mine goes every year he's on the psych team helping people who are going through mental crises which is quite an important role when you have 70 ,000 people on mushrooms in the desert.
A highlight from Ripple's Fortress Acquisition Shows the Brittleness of Crypto Infrastructure
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Tuesday, September 12th, and today we are talking about all of this dust up with fortress and the Ripple acquisition and what it means and who you should be mad at. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends. Well, today we are talking about one of the biggest discussion points for the last week or so on Twitter, which has been the issues surrounding fortress trust. Let's begin our particular slice of the story on Friday when Ripple announced that they had acquired fortress trust. Now, the deal was pitched as an expansion of Ripple's regulated crypto offering as they built out a vertically integrated blockchain services product suite. And Monica Long, the president of Ripple, said in a statement, licenses are a powerful enabler to build and deliver best in class customer experiences for enterprises using Ripple's crypto infrastructure across our payments and liquidity solutions, which she was referring to as the fact that fortress trust holds a Nevada state trust license, which allows it to custody crypto and act as a financial intermediary with the traditional financial system. This would add then to Ripple's existing strategy of accumulating licenses. Between Ripple and its subsidiaries, the corporate group now holds 30 state money transmitter licenses, a New York state bit license and a major payment institution license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore. So commentary over the weekend on this fell into two camps. On the one hand, this could have simply been Ripple buying a company to add a custody service to its one stop shop approach to crypto. On the other hand, many viewed this as a quiet bailout of fortress. And indeed, the Friday acquisition announcement was slightly strange in tone. Executives asserted that fortress could add a key piece to Ripple's vertically integrated crypto offering. However, the deal announcement was a little bit out of sync with previous announcements from Ripple. Specifically, the acquisition valuation was not mentioned, which was out of character for Ripple who had brashly announced a 250 million dollar deal to acquire crypto custodian Medeco in May. And of course, we have to put it in the context into which it happened. Fortress itself was already viewed with skepticism. The licensed crypto custodian had been founded by former prime trust CEO Scott Purcell in December of 2021. Purcell had left prime trust in January of that year. That was around the same time that prime trust mishandled wallet storing customer funds, leading to an 83 million dollar shortfall. Several key executives left prime trust to follow Purcell into his new venture. The firm was also aggressive in hiring former banking regulators to their team. The rift between companies was so acrimonious that there were even allegations of IP theft in taking software systems built at prime trust across to fortress. In June of this year, the shortfall in customer funds at prime trust came to light. Around this, the company was first placed into receivership by the Nevada regulator and later declared bankruptcy. Now prior to prime trust acknowledging their insolvency, numerous high profile customers fled for other custodians. It was already widely suspected that prime trust was insolvent at the time. The most impactful departure from prime trust was swan bitcoin. In June, swan announced that they would be transferring all customer funds held in custody to fortress. The transfer took over a week and involved a shutdown of automated transactions with swan. To many, it felt like an emergency operation more than a normal business decision, although throughout the process, swan executives assured customers that funds were safe. So this is where we were over the weekend. Lots of speculation, lots of questions around fortress, lots of questions around ripple. And on Monday, new information came to light around the circumstances surrounding the fortress acquisition. The day before the acquisition, my birthday, September 7th, fortress had posted a disclosure about a security incident which they tried to make seem relatively innocuous. On that day, they tweeted, Thankfully, there is no breach within fortress technology or systems, impacted accounts were fully restored. And most importantly, of course, there is no loss of funds. We immediately terminated the vendor integration and out of an abundance of caution paused all accounts to assess and ensure system wide security. We are taking all necessary measures to make sure the vendor is held accountable. Although this has been resolved, transparency and security are of the utmost important to us and our customers. We also have some big company news we are excited to share later this week. Now, Ryan Weeks, a reporter at the block received a tip that the incident had been far more impactful than it was made out to be. Indeed, he was told that 450 Bitcoin worth around 11 .3 million had been stolen from fortress trust, although that specific amount has been unable to be verified. What has been verified is that the ripple deal was much more of a bailout of fortress than it initially seemed. A ripple spokesperson said, Conversations accelerated last week following the security incident via a third party analytics vendor, but this opportunity makes sense for Ripple in the long term. Luckily, Ripple was in a position to act quickly to step in and make customers whole, and there have been no breaches to fortress technology or systems. Fortress notified customers immediately of the incident when it happened, as they mentioned in their tweets. Now, for those of you eagle eyed observers out there, or I guess eagle eared as the case may be, owl eared, whatever, you'll notice that fortress's Thursday statement said, This technically is consistent with Ripple swooping in to make customers whole, but also somewhat misleading if in fact Ripple had had to bail fortress out to make those customers whole, but also somewhat misleading if ripple indeed had to come in to make sure that those customers didn't actually lose their funds. Now what was also made clear on Monday is that the ripple deal is still pending regulatory and due diligence approvals. Given that we already saw the Bitco acquisition of prime trust fall apart during the due diligence process earlier this year, there is certainly no guarantee that it actually goes through. Now, of course, as you've already heard, there are numerous other companies tangled up in this mess. Swan Bitcoin is, of course, one of fortress's most well known customers. They have been in an absolute narrative battle and have claimed throughout that they were completely unaffected by the issue and the client funds remain safe. The other companies impacted are the custodian services subcontracted by fortress. Their role in the industry is mainly as the holder of a relevant trust license rather than as a tech provider. We know, for example, that hot wallet services are provided by fire blocks, while cold storage is provided by Bitco. And indeed, with the behind the scenes detail now made public, Bitco CEO Mike Belshi wrote a Twitter thread outlining his disappointment with how the entire debacle was handled. On Monday, Mike wrote, they are still at risk and whether Bitco was somehow involved. Spoiler alert, we were not. When fortress lost funds, they chose to omit facts about what happened, downplay the event and conclude, quote, most importantly, no funds were lost. Obviously, we now know this was not true. I guess what they meant to say is we believe we fixed the problem and we have taken steps to make sure clients are made whole. But those two statements are not even close to being the same. Ripple has done the right thing and disclosed that a breach did occur. But fortress still has not made a real statement about what actually happened. So, summarizing what is publicly known, along with what we know from Bitco, one, fortress suffered a breach through some third party integration, not Bitco, two, via fortress's platform and some third party integration, the attacker was able to drain funds from fortress's hot wallet system, three, fortress used fire blocks for its hot wallet system, four, fortress noticed the failure and says they have fixed the problem with the third party, five, although fortress did use Bitco to custody some of its Bitcoin and digital assets, Bitco was not affected. None of the fortress assets held at Bitco were at risk from this third party integration or taken. After the breach, fortress reached out to Bitco. Bitco strongly advised fortress to disclose what happened immediately. Fortress did not do that. Eventually fortress decided to sell to Ripple. This is a great outcome because Ripple was able to make all clients whole and will hopefully help fortress with resources to correct the security weaknesses which led to this event. Ripple is a good actor here and should be applauded. The real victims here are fortress's clients who deserve enough respect to get the whole truth. They are not to be blamed. The whole situation is exactly why we need decentralization. We can't continue to be dependent on the honesty of custodians, bankers or trusted third parties acting with integrity when bad things happen. Bad things will happen and most humans don't have enough courage to be honest through it. So there are a lot of things that people are upset about here. One of the biggest strands of conversation has been around Swan. On September 11th, the company tweeted, Swan client coins are in insured cold wallets at Bitco and did not move during the reported incident at fortress. The coins are protected by video calls and physical access and are not subject to any incidents at fortress. Swan set up this agreement with fortress to use Bitco as a cold storage sub -custodian precisely to prevent such a scenario. Swan has direct on -chain visibility to funds at Bitco. When someone asked what kind of insurance Swan was referring to, Corey Clifton the CEO said, It's $250 million per wallet, with no wallet holding more than $250 million, provided by Lloyd's of London. It's the best setup we've seen. As always, take self -custody if you're willing and able. Now, responding to the critique in general of Swan being associated with these companies, which now have a less -than -stellar record handling customer assets and are now owned by a company that is anathema to many Bitcoiners, Corey wrote, Separation of brokerage and custody is the model for traditional assets for good reason, and there's a good probability it becomes law for digital assets in the U .S. I am not a fan of the trust -me -bro model of brokerage and custody under the same roof, like Mt. Gox and FTX. The goal is to have no single company able to unilaterally move user funds. We very intentionally set up Fortress and BitGo with that model. Now, I understand the narrative frustration here, but at the end of the day, the reason that Swan had to work with these companies is that there just wasn't anyone else. This is why as much as some Bitcoiners are worried about the entrance of traditional financial actors into the space, many others view it as necessary to just have more market options for crypto -native brokerage companies like Swan to actually work with. Anyways, the whole thing is a mess, reflective of how bad the infrastructure is for crypto and Bitcoin right now in the U .S., and a reminder of just how challenging digital assets are, even for companies that have big history in the space. The one other big story from yesterday that I want to cover was the FTX creditor update. The FTX bankruptcy team reports that they have marshaled around $7 billion in assets. Using updated valuations from the end of August, the estate holds $3 .4 billion in major crypto tokens. This includes $560 million in Bitcoin, $192 million in ETH, and $1 .1 billion in Solana. Now, of that, it appears that only $137 million worth of Solana is listed as vesting, meaning a much larger portion of the tokens may be eligible for sale than previously thought. The non -crypto assets include 38 properties in the Bahamas worth around $200 million, as well as $529 million worth of securities primarily made up of grayscale Bitcoin trust shares, $2 .6 billion in cash, and $4 .5 billion in venture investments, although no current valuation of those investments was provided. The firm's liabilities show $65 billion in non -customer claims. That figure is massively inflated by a $43 .5 billion claim from the IRS, which is presumed to be subordinated to customer claims. The IRS generally submits the largest possible tax claim during bankruptcy proceedings, but often negotiates down significantly or differs entirely to a creditor distribution. Of the remaining liabilities, a $9 .2 billion claim from FTX Digital Markets is assumed to be invalid or redundant, which leaves $4 .1 billion claim by Genesis and $2 billion claim by Celsius as the major non -customer claims to deal with. So far, a little over 36 ,000 customers have filed claims totaling $16 billion. Of the claims that have been scheduled so far, around 10 % of customers have agreed to their scheduled claims, while 18 % have disputed their claims and 72 % have yet to respond with either an agreement or a dispute. Now, easily the most discussed part of the news dealt with the firm's clawback strategy. Transactions done within a 90 -day window of the bankruptcy filing can be eligible for a clawback, but in practice, not all claims are pursued. The estate has successfully pursued $588 million in claims so far, and they identify an additional $16 .6 billion in clawbacks that could be pursued. The estate is currently considering how to deal with customer clawbacks where users withdrew from the exchange close to the bankruptcy being filed. Several options being looked at included the full 90 -day window for clawbacks as well as a shorter 15 -day window which captures the major public news surrounding the FTX collapse. Travis Kling tweeted about this saying, This brings up a big question of executability. How feasible is it for the estate to go sue people in every corner of earth? This is a really surprising turn in this deal. Everyone was thinking this outcome was quite unlikely the entire time. If the estate ends up doing what it looks like they want to, it will change the nature of this bankruptcy process. We'll learn more at the 9 -13 hearing. Indeed, the estate is due in court tomorrow Wednesday for an omnibus hearing which will cover numerous aspects of the case including the potential liquidation of crypto holdings as well. You might remember that three weeks ago FTX asked for permission to appoint Galaxy Digital as a selling agent. Selling would initially have a limit of $100 million per week which could increase to $200 million if creditors agree. The market has obviously begun to price in significant fear of this FTX liquidation. Sunday for example saw a liquidity breakdown in Solana as rumors of imminent dumping spread. And yet many think that the market is overreacting. Jeff Dorman, the CIO at ARCA said, The way crypto market makers and traders are front -running the FTX supply shows a complete misunderstanding of how a syndicated sale process works. This isn't an every -man -for -himself VC unlock. This is a court -ordered process that Galaxy will sell very slowly and opportunistically. Lastly, the potential reboot of the exchange remains a possibility. According to the report, 75 bidders have been contacted. The report stated that Proposals are being evaluated. Transaction timing will depend on nature of transactions, readiness of bidder, and other considerations. So, friends, if there are currently two archetypes of breakdown episodes, with one being legal battles that are increasingly poking towards a positive direction for this industry, and the other being cleanup from the excesses of years past, this unfortunately was one of the latter. But, as they say, the only way out is through, and so until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
A highlight from HUGE RIPPLE XRP NEWS! RIPPLE ACQUIRES FORTRESS TRUST, JPMORGAN CROSS BRODER PAYMENT TOKEN!
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five -star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, we got huge Ripple news. Ripple acquires Fortress Trust, which will use Ripple payments tech for Fortress Pay. This is a huge acquisition by Ripple and a very strategic one. I'm going to share the details why it's important. And the Ripple acquisition of Fortress Trust comes just a few months after it spent $250 million on Swiss custody startup Medeco. So many of you may recall that news back in May of this year. So the deal announced this morning expands Ripple's collection of regulatory licenses, and that's the strategic part. Through technology and licensing, Fortress Trust, a subsidiary of Fortress Blockchain Technologies that holds a Nevada trust license, offers infrastructure services to enterprise crypto clients. Here's a quote from Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse. As an early investor in Fortress Blockchain Technologies, we've had a chance to get to know the team. It's vision and technology. Since their launch in 2021, they've built an impressive business with reoccurring revenue and a strong roster of both crypto native and new to crypto customers. Here it gives some more details that Ripple became a minority investor in Fortress's parent company in 2022 as part of its $22 .5 million seed round, which Aon Capital led. After today's deal, terms of which were not disclosed, Ripple plans to continue to invest in Fortress and its Fortress Pay services, which will now make use of Ripple's payments technologies. So this is really great, guys. And the key item here is that Nevada trust license, which just expands Ripple's footprint across the United States. Now that in itself, in a vacuum, may not seem like a big deal, but when you think about XRP getting clarity from the ruling from Judge Torres and more companies in the United States can start using the XRP ledger and XRP for payments, that is a big deal, folks. So expanding their footprint across the United States, being able to work with different institutions. So a really, really big move here by Ripple and they continue to make progress and continue to build and to give them credit, they were doing it through the lawsuit. So now I think all the roadblocks are out of the way and they got a clear runway to further take off at a faster speed, right? Here's what Ripple's Monica Long had to say regarding this, she's the president of Ripple. As licensed providers of crypto infrastructure services, Fortress Trust and Ripple share common goals, bringing best in class services to convert, store and move money around the world using blockchain and crypto technologies. And here, Michael Arrington, one of my heroes, I've had him many times on the podcast. We know he has a fund that is denominated in XRP called Arrington XRP Capital. He tweeted out, go Ripple go. So it's certainly big news. And this Nevada based chartered trust license, I think is huge for Ripple for sure. Now some other quick news around the XRP ledger. So there's the XLS AMM, so automated market maker amendment has been proposed for the XRP ledger and is available for the amendment voting process. XLS 30 is the first AMM of its kind and is built as a native protocol. So many of you may recall XLS 20, which was the new protocol for NFTs. And that rolled out. Now they're building this for the AMMs. So this is a really great guys. Let me give you some more details. The feature is undergoing the amendment process where the validator community votes on bringing it to the XRP L main net XLS 30 will bring native AMM functionality to the XRP ledger that enables the trading of assets in automatic liquidity pools. Notably, the design introduces a novel continuous auction mechanism that incentivizes arbiters to bid for mispricing opportunities and effectively reduces the effects of impermanent loss and for liquidity providers. Here, all of these unique features combined with the XRPLs low fees and fast finality, bringing XLS 30 to the cutting edge of decentralized finance applications. So really great. This is what you want to see as far as blockchains that devs are working on building and enhancing creating new features. So this is awesome. If you're an XRP holder, the XRP ledger obviously is the native ledger, which XRP runs on, and it needs to be updated. It needs to have the ability for folks to build on it and use it and provide different use cases. So definitely great news here. All right, we got a quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which is a great crypto platform. I can vouch for this platform. I've been using them since 2018, folks. So I'm not recommending something I don't use. I use them. I trust them. I've spoken to the CEO, both the old CEO and the new CEO and many other folks at Uphold. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities on this platform, as well as 37 national currencies. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. All right, folks, speaking of XRP, JP Morgan Chase is developing a blockchain -based digital deposit token to speed up cross -border payments.

If you're hanging around National Airport today or Reagan you're going to see or Dulles you're going to see senators coming back. So you know that actually the fall is over. We are without Dwayne today. He's stuck at Burning Man. As many of you know Burning Man turned into a giant quicksand, a giant mud bath, a complete and utter disaster. And Dwayne always goes to Burning Man because he's woke. And I don't know when we're going to get him back. If you're watching on the Salem News Channel the pictures of the Burning Man Caravan from nowhere to nowhere is truly remarkable. They had years worth of rain overnight just as they got there. And to my way of thinking if you can check a weather forecast before you go to Burning Man you kind of deserve this. And it's not Woodstock. They didn't have that good of a music. So when Dwayne gets back we'll ask him about it. But the Wall Street Journal reports this morning technology entrepreneurs, artists and other free spirits like Dwayne who flock to this desert playa land for the annual Burning Man, this desert playa for the annual Burning Man Festival are accustomed to weathering, withering heat and dust storms. This year they wound up wallowing in the muck. A desert storm turned the dry lake bed into a thick slimy clay over the weekend transforming the Burning Man site 90 miles north of Reno, Nevada into a quagmire enforcing the closure of roads in and out of the event. Attendees spent the weekend covered in mud which kicked their boots and made traversing the temporary city difficult. The rain flooded tents causing some participants to rush to find new accommodations or to quit the festival entirely if they could manage to find a way out. Now I have no idea where Dwayne is.

Wall Street Journal because there is no news. Labor Day weekend is officially a no news weekend along with the 4th of July Memorial Day. Nothing happens. If we are ever Pearl Harbor again, it's going to happen on Memorial Day or it doesn't rule out terrorist attacks. They're not dumb enough to do this. They might be dumb enough to actually attack us on Memorial Day, Labor Day or July 4th because no one is in the office. But the Wall Street Journal realizing they would have a giant news hole this morning did post their Wall Street Journal poll.

Lieutenant Colonel George Bivins said they're working to find convicted murderer, Danilo Cavalcante, and want to make sure no one is hurt in the process. Cavalcante was allegedly seen on video in Pecopson Township, west of Philadelphia and near the Chester County prison where he escaped from. Bivins said they have had Cavalcante's mother record a video that they're broadcasting that asks him to turn himself in peacefully. Rolling Stones fans won't have.

President Biden says he's proud to be a huge supporter of labor unions. Wall Street didn't build America. The middle class built America and unions built the middle class. Speaking in Philadelphia, the president said America's workers are the hardest working in the world and the country's support for the union is the highest it's been in some time. Biden said his goal is to get the US economy to work for the everyday American and added job satisfaction is also the highest it's been around the country in decades.

A highlight from LGM Podcast: Talking Football with Rich Brooks
"The football isn't going to change it because the mighty dollar is doing it all. The greed and, you know, let's face it, players are getting paid, coaches are making exorbitant salaries that make no sense, really, that make no sense. This is the Lawyers, Guns and Money podcast. Hello and welcome to the Lawyers, Guns and Money podcast. My name is Rob Farley. Here with me is my colleague Eric Loomis. Eric and I have the tremendous honor to have as a guest on this Guns and Money podcast, Coach Rich Brooks. His biography is long, but it involves being the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats. It involves being the head coach of the St. Louis Rams, and most notably for us, the head coach of our beloved Oregon Ducks. Sir, it is a tremendous honor to have you here with us this afternoon. It's a pleasure to be with you. I wanted to start just by asking, I know that you live back in Oregon, and I hope that your place is safe from the fires. We have had a lot of smoke. I have a son that lives up the McKenzie River about 25 miles, and his house burned down in the fires two years ago, and the fires are close to his house again, but the good news is he can't get to it because everything else is burned around it, but it's been pretty smoky, and the wind has changed, and it should be a good day for Oregon football on Saturday when they open, as long as the wind continues from the north or the west. Well, let's hope so, and you know, part of the reason that we wanted to talk to you is this is such a transformative moment in college football right now. I mean, you of course coached Oregon for 17 years. You also played at Oregon State, and the fate of those two schools in the current conference realignment has differed, and Oregon and Oregon State, after playing against each other for over a century, all of a sudden that may not happen anymore, and I'm wondering from your perspective, what your thoughts are about realignment and the ways in which it's affecting these two schools that mean so much to you? Well, you know, people don't remember, but when I went to play at Oregon State, graduated Nevada Union High School in Grass Valley, California in 1959, and played freshman football that year, and then varsity football 60 -61 -62, and had the pleasure of playing on a pretty good team with Terry Baker, who won the first Heisman Trophy west of the Mississippi, but in those days, Oregon State was independent. It was not part of the PAC -8 at that time. The league broke up over money.
Dan Bongino: Meeting Paula 20 Years Ago
"Prime show, whatever it is. Crazy how that happens. He just keeps adding to these shows. But yeah, it's been 20 years. So Well, that's crazy because we met a week before 9 -11. I don't know if you know that, but I've never told the story, but Paul and I met a week before 9 -11 and she went and flew out 9 a before -11 happened. And she worked in the building right next door. 120 Broadway at the old Security Industry Association. She was a she was one vice presidents over there. So she had worked right next door the World Trade Center. So obviously, when all this goes down, you know, I'd only known her for a few days and I'm like, oh my gosh, she works right next door. she's I hope alive. So I'm calling her on my Motorola star tax cell phone. There was no, you know, phones or anything back then. And I can't find her. And I'm thinking, oh my gosh, she died or she was hurt. This is so horrible. I just met this woman. I was really into her and I was just dead. I can't believe that she wasn't answering my calls. So it turns out she was visiting her mom in Nevada, and at least to live over in Centennial Hills over there. And she got caught over there in Nevada and just, you know, wasn't picking up her phone because it was just really chaotic when the whole thing went down. But 20 years. If you're going to ask marriage me for advice, don't. It's a mistake, especially on Facebook. Thank you, John, on Facebook's happy
A highlight from How to Steal Almost $100 Million: Prime Trust goes Bust
"Welcome back everyone, I am Cas Pianci, I'm joined as usual by my partner in crime, Mr. Bennett Tomlin. How are you today? I'm doing pretty good. How are you, Cas? Good. It's been a weird few days, even despite the weekend. Yeah, a lot of a lot of weird news breaking. I guess that's just always cryptocurrency, which is good. We're in the news business anyway. So today we're talking about a topic that we've previously discussed throughout other episodes. I don't think we ever directly had an episode only about this. But today we're talking about Prime Trust again, because there's been some new news kind of allegations dropping, understandings of what's going on behind the scenes. If anyone's unfamiliar, Prime Trust is a Nevada -based trust that was associated with cryptocurrency. They were essentially the bank. Bank is not the right word, but it is the word I'm going to use here. But they were banking a bunch of cryptocurrency exchanges and clients and all of this. And basically, it's been discovered and confirmed that they lost a ton of money, almost $100 million, which is just kind of incredible. Take it away, Bennett. What's happening here? How did they lose this money? What are the ramifications of it? Yeah, so as you mentioned, we've talked about Prime Trust before, I think most recently in episode 121 with Jonathan Reiter and Patrick Tan of Chain Argos. But what we got most recently is the first day declaration in the bankruptcy by the current interim CEO, Jor Law, and it reveals a few things that have been previously hinted at, but puts numbers on them and really kind of points towards serious management and operational issues with Prime Trust, which, as you said, was like the payment processor for many of these cryptocurrency companies. Binance US, True USD, all the true coins, there was tons of companies that were using Prime Trust as their back end. And so what the declaration revealed was, I think first, what was most shocking to me was that they had invested customer funds into Terra and they ended up losing about $6 million in customer deposits and $2 million in corporate funds when Terra went to zero. We've talked about Terra on this podcast before. It was a Ponzi scheme that was inevitably going to zero. And so it's pretty shocking to hear about a generally well -respected trust company putting customer funds directly into a Ponzi scheme. I don't know if we can call it well -respected. In the industry. Even then, I mean, what does that even mean, given our industry? I think that's kind of the point here. That's the point of FTX, that's the point of Alameda Research, that's the point of Prime Trust, is the most respected whatevers are doing the same shit as the least respected whatevers. I do want to and I want to kind of pause you here for a second. So obviously, as you mentioned, we've talked about it. It's a Ponzi scheme. That's what Terra and Luna were just for a little bit more background on that. It was a stable coin ecosystem. Basically you had this coin with no value whatsoever except that assigned to it by the market. And they used that coin to create a stable coin. And you can guess how that went. It didn't go well. If you're somehow unfamiliar with it, I assume everybody listening is familiar with it. But regardless, the point I want to swing back to here is that you said $6 million in customer funds were utilized and lost on this gamble. And let's call it what it is. It's a gamble. I'm curious because I'm just, let me put it this way, I have a brokerage account that actually a broker takes care of. That broker has a fiduciary duty to not do stuff like what you just mentioned, right? And if they broach that fiduciary duty, not only do they ultimately, I would assume, owe me money and like going to be liable in court and I'm going to take them to court and all this stuff, they won't be able to work at a brokerage anymore. Like there's serious ramifications for this stuff. But for a trust fund, like what happens, how is this possible? Like aren't they breaching their fiduciary duties? Isn't there something wrong going on here? Yes. It's almost certain that they were not in compliance with Nevada's regulations about what assets that they were supposed to be holding as this type of trust company.
"nevada" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"Noah, you mentioned that the people doing all this investment and development in and around Reno say that it's gonna be a good thing for the city, but you can't build a whole bunch of businesses and not also do housing, you know. So our homes being built in the area to accommodate all these new people? Yes, there are. But let me just put something in perspective for you. Before Tesla came, the average house price for a home around Reno area in 2013 was a $188,000. By December of last year, it was almost $520,000. Oh, wow. So we've seen housing prices go up around the country, obviously, but I don't think I've seen him go up at that rate. And one of the places I went to was a place called ranchera, a gated community. The villas, which are right behind us. Yeah. Those are three story condos. A town homes. Then there's the section we're in right now. These are all custom homes, so people just buy a lot here. It is the former sort of mansion and property and estate of Bill harrah, the casino magnate, and the CEO of the community, Robert collard, actually showed me around. So what are the values of these homes? They look pretty nice. Yeah, the homes are nice. These are tough to say because they're all new builds. Nice luxury houses with views of the mountains in either direction. A lot of them are over a $1 million. But if you're coming in and you already have a lot of money from selling a home in Northern California, it's not as expensive for you. So you can go to a place like this and you can have access to this nearby ski slopes of Lake Tahoe. You can still get back to the Bay Area pretty easily, but you're not paying as much in housing and you just have a lot more room to roam. This is what's called the village. So this is all of the retail space. For ranch air, this is called the village at ranchera. That open yet. Oh yeah. Okay. Yeah. What kind of retail do you have? It's all sorts. There's sports bars, there's dulce de Vita, which is a spa, there's a swift, which is a medical so it's basically Irvine in the desert. Yeah, and they're very consciously trying to market this to people from California. Roberts also the CEO of a newer development called the Reno experience district. And this is something where they're trying to create more of a downtown kind of a life. There's going to be an In-N-Out burger in the Reno experience distribution. I knew you'd say that. But the idea is, you know, the new Reno, really a lot of it, at least, is pretty consciously wanting to cater to people who are coming from California. So what does that mean for the people who have lived there for decades for years, multi generational? Yeah, I mean, a lot of them can't afford to rent or buy there. And if they do, they're really scraping by in a lot of cases, because as much as this tech industry is coming in, you still have a lot of people who work in restaurants and hotels, and those jobs just don't pay as well. So they're getting priced out of the market. There's not always out and out resentment from the people I talk to, but there's a little frustration that some of these changes are leaving them out and making their lives less affordable. I think there's a recognition from some of the people that overall they do want growth and a more diversified economy, but you'll hear people just talk about this mix bag. Yeah, I could only imagine the struggle some people will face with such quick changes to their hometown. Yeah, I met one woman named Maria safan, very early in the morning about 5 30 a.m. when I was still on east coast time and wanted to get some breakfast at a Mexican restaurant and she was working at the same taqueria as her husband in downtown Reno. How long have you worked here? Thank you. Ten years. And so where do you live in a house apartment or? I right now I live in a permanent, which is so expensive. Do they raise the rat? Yeah. And she had told me, you know, they just weren't spending money on things like Christmas presents because their rent was so high. Yeah, I have a limit for all of them. I think I only work for brands and just only for a little bit of food and just a little bit of stuff. You mean, like, no luxuries, you mean. Like, no extra stuff. Yeah. Finally Noah, we've been talking about just the California exodus to Reno and Nevada during this conversation, but to what extent is this a story that's playing out in other parts of the west, then how close is a region to a tipping point? You know, we went to Reno to try and illustrate basically a larger point that the whole west is getting transformed by a lot of out migration from California. And a lot of it is positive. People are very happy with some of the business development they're getting. But there are some real costs. And you're hearing people talk about them more and more. The Utah governor told Californians stay home. I talked to people in Colorado, which again has always had a lot of Californians coming in. They've got a lot of housing problems, Californians are contributing to them. You're hearing it in Idaho, you know, a lot of these states in the west, they're seeing a lot of these same issues.

"With a little cart and I knocked on every goddamn door in the county. And I went sat in their living rooms and I talked to them like you and I were talking and I said, you know, you give me a shot at this and I'll do my very best to remember that you will. But the fact remains is that both he and his businesses have done extremely well by both the state and the local officials and he does have a role in government and he has tons of connections in the state government. So what does land say about what he's doing for the region then? Well, he has a case to make. Look, this is an area that has been particularly hard hit in prior recessions, in part because they're so dependent on gambling. And they're still very dependent on gambling. I mean, you know, when you drive a few miles away, into Reno, casinos are still the thing, hospitality is still the thing. So the state and the region, they really want to diversify their economy. And tech is a really good way to diversify your economy, tack and industrial and all these things. They're bringing in tons of new jobs that aren't as dependent on hospitality. I think that the future for this little community in northern Nevada is unprecedented in what's going to happen. Because a lot of Silicon Valley is coming and they're already talking and they're already looking because over here is a great place to live and it's a great place to do business. And his case is that these people, they want to build this stuff somewhere. Why not make it here? I think we've created here in this little county, a blueprint of what success looks like. If you believe in. It's really interesting to see this new Reno because I remember growing up in California, the billboards or commercials, they'd call it the biggest little city in the world. Now it seems that what Lance and Chris are promoting is something like come to northern Nevada where regulation is light, taxes are low. There's so much space to grow and that's all going to mean great things for the surrounding communities, but is that really the case? Well, there's certainly a lot of people who agree with that philosophy. There are also new questions, even from the head of the Chamber of Commerce as to whether this sort of unmitigated growth is the best way to go. Because remember, these companies are coming in, they are providing jobs, but they're not paying many taxes, and with all these new people are coming huge needs. People need places to live. They want schools to send their kids to. They need police and fire. You know, you name it. They need this stuff, and there's not enough to go around. I mean, one of the biggest booming businesses that actually is headquartered in the industrial park is the food bank. They've got a 130,000 people a month who are needing their services, which is a record for them. Wow. So you can see, even within the industrial park itself, sort of the good and the bad of this rapid growth. After the break, how the Reno locals are handling all
"nevada" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"So there's a guy who is the project manager of the park named Chris Thompson, something like a city manager. If you will. He showed me around. He like almost everybody you mean in northern Nevada is from California originally. He moved a few years ago from San Diego. I had the California burnout face. And he put me into his Chevy suburban after showing me this giant map that's sort of mapped out where all the different places were. But, you know, you sort of have to see it to believe it. So he just was my tour guide taking me around. Here's some example of recent construction going on here. Yeah, and is that a water? It is. And he says this place is the biggest industrial park in the world. There are some different rankings depending on how you look at it. But at the very least, it's close. This is our own rail. We built this. This is our own internal rail line for the park. And he basically was pointing things out everywhere. It was almost hard to keep track of because, you know, here on your left, they're knocking down and flattening some rock here to build a giant place for a company you've never heard of. Over there, they're building a solar field. That's Apple over there. That's an apple solar field. It's a 150 acres of solar panels and they put 50 megawatts. I can't see it. It's all that great stuff on the side of that. Google has something going on. Walmart has a distribution center. So let's Tesla and Panasonic over there. They don't allow the public in the front gate, but this is a good kind of overlook. Everything is in this massive scale of factory and warehouse, all kinds of things go on there. And what you're seeing is only about 20% of the park that's buildable. So you're not, you're not close to using all the land here. Not close. That's right. So there seems to be already a lot of businesses there, but you mentioned there's still a lot of construction. So how many people actually work at this Tahoe Reno industrial center? The number they gave me is 25,000 workers, and it seems to only be growing. Tesla, for example, has announced they're going to start building Tesla trucks there in another massive expansion of their own property. The Tesla semi as we understand it and what's been reported in the public is going to be built in one of those two big boxes on the right. Those are all Tesla trucks over there. Plus there's just all kinds of sites for yet to come projects. Damn, 25,000 people at this industrial park basically are their services out there for them. Like restaurants, I don't know, bars clubs. Well, Chris was complaining they don't even have a Starbucks yet. We have a lot of ground to make up on the retail sector because we've grown so fast. Where do you get your coffee? Usually I bring it with me, but there's some, there's like a Safeway and importance of here we'll go buy it real quick. I think I saw that on the way they have like a truck stop that has a Taco Bell and a Burger King and a port of subs that they're building a hotel. Marriott, courtyard is building up here on the corner. But this is our retail sector as it is right now. They've got an urgent care and a dentist, but it doesn't feel like a place you would live. In fact, there is no place there to live. There is no apartments or houses or anything that could keep you there more than a couple nights at a hotel. So what's bringing out all these companies to this industrial park and the Nevada desert? Let's see, tons of land really easy approvals and massive massive subsidies. Tesla's initial factory got more than a $1 billion in state subsidies and basically they're paying very little in taxes for this. And that even some of the smaller companies that are moving there are getting some of these tax breaks. Not at the same scale as Tesla, but they're not the same scale of company. So it means a lot if you're getting tens of millions of dollars in tax breaks and other incentives. And the permitting and approval process is nothing like it is in California. You know, where it's known to drag on for months or even years for certain kinds of approvals. They promise they can get things done incredibly fast by the standards of any American city or state. Coming up after the break, the man helping to build Nevada's industrial Paradise into desert. Noah, so this Reno adjacent industrial park, and all sounds like a wild west boomtown to me. So where did that culture come from? Well, a lot of that really stems from the founder, land skillman. He's a real character. He wears a cowboy hat and he's a big guy and he talks big and bluntly and very charming. He's definitely a character out of the west that you would expect. In fact, he runs the oldest brothel in the state, the Mustang ranch, which is right adjacent to the property of the project itself. If I want to go to Mustang ranch for some lunch, and I promise there's G radon. Where were you? So Chris actually took me to the Mustang ranch to meet with Lance. It's a pretty famous place. There's actually a movie about it called love ranch, starring Helen Mirren, and Chris, when I said, I really wanted to meet Lance said, well, he lives there. Why don't we just go over and have lunch? And the food is good. Okay. All right. Just follow me. Let me tell him what a little bit we're coming. Okay. All right. And so we drove through this park through the winding roads and right when you get outside the borders of the park, there you are in this old west brothel. Hey, how are you? Good to meet you. Thank you. Very nice. We got cute samples. We're here right in the middle. I know where you put me. You've been putting me there for 15 years. So he's a really good marketer and a land developer, and he's 78. He also moved from San Diego in 1985, so another California refugee. Oh, this is your regular table for business? For some business. And he basically found this idea, you know, had this vision that this industrial park had potential to lure businesses there for the reasons I talked about, you know, the vast amount of land, the easy permitting process and eventually the subsidies. So typically a developer wouldn't go out and build in the mountains. But I knew in the late 90s that Rena was out of land. I remember when I took my partner roger out there and said Gilman, are you sure? And I said, roger, I'm just as sure as I can be. There are companies that want to be here, and this is the first and only place they can go unless they go clearly go out in the desert, which is too far. And he's also incredibly powerful. I mean, he is on the county commission for story county and guess who the main business is in story county. His property. Oh boy. So he really has a tremendous amount of clout. Him and his partner were able to get the state to actually pay them back for the work they had done to build this road that runs through the property, basically an offshoot of the highway, and they've also negotiated these incredible subsidies for these companies. Wait, an elected official with all these business interests in the county that he represents, isn't that a conflict of interest? Well, he's been facing questions about that for years. And he has already answered for it about how he recuses himself from certain votes, things like that. So when I first ran, there was suspicion. You know, how are you going to be, you got this here and you got to develop and all that how are we going to vote for you? How you going to do that? I spent a year

"Here to talk to me about all this is my LA times colleague, enterprise reporter, Noah beerman, Noah, welcome to times. Tyga star. Okay, so people have been whining about Californians invading other states. Jeez, for decades now. I mean, just ask anyone from Colorado. So when it comes to Nevada, what's different this time? Well, in some ways it is a continuation for sure. But it's supercharged. So you already had all these people coming in because tech companies were coming in and outside of the region. But then you got this second wave of people during the pandemic. And these were people who wanted to be really close to Silicon Valley, easy driving and flying distance, but they wanted to get away, and their housing prices were much cheaper here, so they could, and they were only a few hours away. They could go to the ski slopes in Lake Tahoe and in their calculation they were having it all. It all amounted to this explosion of new people coming into Nevada. In California is by far the biggest donor state. 85,000 people traded California driver's license is for Nevada licenses in 2021 and 2022, according to the DMV statistics there. It's also being borne out in census and in business, surveys, about businesses moving. So you're seeing it all over the place. Northern Nevada though, because most of the people that I know that went to Nevada, they're like in Las Vegas, Henderson, southern Nevada, like my cousin Raymond, what's up, Raymond? How does northern Nevada look like these days? Like, when I think of it, I think dude ranches Mustangs and Reno 9-1-1, of course, so basically hilarity and emptiness. Well, you know, you are seeing a lot of desert when you're out there. Driving toward USA Parkway, all along your way. It's just basically high desert, mountains, and cold with snow, power lines. You start seeing all these signs for wild horses, a few billboards, stuff you'd expect. Signs saying to be aware of Mustangs. So we can see if we see it. And not much but power lines until all of a sudden you see this wide expanse of construction, warehouses, things like that. All right, as soon as you turn off USA Parkway on your left is some kind of factory with smokestacks and a big sign that says Tahoe Reno industrial center world's largest and it's in a sort of a western style. There's this thing called the Tahoe Reno industrial center. And it's just outside arena very close to the airport very close to the city. And it's been around since the late 1990s. It was started by these two guys one named lands Gilman and other called roger Norman, and they bought this huge, huge, huge, and can I say huge again, chunk of land and the desert hills. The thing is a 166 miles. It's the same size as a major American city. New Orleans in Denver are pretty comparable, just to give you an idea. And most of the time, it just remained mostly vacant land. There wasn't much going on. But in 2014, they convinced Tesla to build this giant thing called a Gigafactory there to basically build the battery pack for Tesla,

"We will never know what happened to the nevada. Once the vessel departed skagway ship had little going in its favor. It was well past its prime. And according to those with knowledge of the vessel the claritin nevada should have been scrapped instead of carrying passengers across the rough waters of alaska in the winter. The captain lacked skillet running the vessel as demonstrated by his poor docking abilities and the unqualified often. Inebriated crew could provide little assistance. In the case of an emergency the worst decision captain lewis made though was to depart skagway in the middle of a storm producing hurricane force winds even large ships holed up in such weather so it remains a mystery why lewis thought the rickety old clara nevada could handle heavy seas and high winds. No one knows how. Many people sailed from skagway on the clare nevada and the only passenger list presumably went down with the ship reports of the number of passengers on board the ill-fated vessel very between twenty five and one hundred and fifty alaska has been steve lebai has extensively researched the sinking of the clara nevada and most consider him the leading expert on the ship in his book. The clara nevada gold greed murder and alaska's inside passage levi estimates approximately fifty seven passengers boarded the clara nevada in skagway and the ship carried a crew of thirty several sources reported that the clara nevada steamed south from skagway carrying one hundred and sixty five thousand dollars in raw gold estimated at over thirteen million dollars today. The gold belong to one. Or more prospectors on the ship and levi makes the point it would likely have been in the form of gold dust if we believe undocumented but numerous eyewitness reports that a dilapidated ship with a dubious crew carried a small fortune in gold and a load of dynamite when it steamed out into a violent storm in the fridge and north pacific. This premise would make an excellent opening for novel but the plot thickens and with the help of frequent articles in the to seattle newspapers. The legend of the disaster of the clare nevada grew daily on the afternoon of february. Sixth eighteen ninety eight. The ss clara nevada departed skagway in a roaring storm with hurricane force winds out of the north when the ship passed through burner bay near eldred rock about thirty miles or forty eight point. Three kilometers south of skagway it round ground on eldred rock a witness eight miles or twelve point. Nine kilometers away claimed he saw an orange fireball and fly into the sky. Reporters afforded this eyewitness account a great deal of weight but levi questions how the man could have seen the boat wreck from his position. The man did sound the alarm. Though telling others a ship hit eldred rock and exploded due to the storm and heavy seas. It was too dangerous to launch a rescue until the following day the deputy collector of the united states customs in alaska. Inspector t. a markham chartered. The steamship rustler to investigate the reported accident on the shore near eldred rock. He found clothing photographs furniture and lumber he also discovered life preservers and a hatch cover printed with hasler. The original name of the clara nevada when markham reached eldred rock. He saw the distinct outline of a vessel twenty four feet or seven point three meters below the surface of the water. A diver inspected the ship and noted a black hole in the hall in the location of the boiler room. Seattle reporters speculated one of the boilers exploded. When the clara nevada hit eldred rock blowing a hole in the bottom of the hall. This conclusion made sense because the boilers repeatedly malfunctioned. On the trip from seattle to skagway when the diver reported the whole had black edge though people wondered why an exploding boiler would cause a black hole black marks more likely indicated a fire when reports leaked about the illegal dynamite aboard. a new theory emerged. Perhaps one or more lanterns aboard the ship overturned and started a fire on the clara nevada if the blaze reached the dynamite then a nation of explosives would not only explain the blackened hole but would also mesh with the eyewitness account of a fireball sending sparks into the air after an investigation. The steamboat inspection service concluded that unsecured lanterns overturned in the pitching rolling seas catching the ship on fire. While the captain and officers battled the blaze in a frantic attempt to keep it from reaching the dynamite they lost track of the vessels bearings and the storm push the clara nevada broadside onto the reef at eldred rock where the ship split open and sank the inspection service. Investigators deduced that. The fire must have started before the boat hit the rock because the divers found fire hose on the ship's deck and the hose was attached to the hydrants and coupled.

"These all these fighter pilots their you know husbands fathers. They have families. They're not cold hearted killers. I feel like if the government was shooting down dozens of civilian aircraft every year. Somebody would say something i mean. Yeah by now. Somebody on their deathbed would be like and by the way. Yeah i mean. I'm sure it's probably happened once or twice. And we probably don't know about it i would i would. I would agree with because yeah. It's a pretty serious. You can go on youtube. And there's videos of pilots that just get even near the airspace. And they next thing you know. There's you know f sixteen tailing him so it's not something to screw around with but on the other end of the spectrum f sixteen fly slow enough to tail cessna probably not but they will budget and yeah i was trying to think of like can even fly slowly might stay with a prego one hundred and twenty lights if at an angle towards the ground and just rocking thrust. Because they're not getting any lift at. That's yeah yeah more more likely. They probably like radio. You and do a couple lie. Close fly bys like showing their weapons to break the sonic barrier right past. You just be like yeah. You're you're turning around on the other end of the crazy spectrum though. It could be that the aliens area fifty one either abducting these aircraft or maybe the. Us government uses these aircraft to test new advanced alien weapon technology. Well for that one shoot and they couldn't find it. That's one hundred percent right so yeah it sounds like a really cool x files episode in all honestly i. I don't believe the area fifty one or portal theories. I think it's something more simple as you know pilots. Just underestimate the the crazy weather. That happens around mountains but who knows maybe portals. Maybe it's aliens you know. Gotta have. I like to think it's possible. So that is. That is all i had show. I agree with you on that. I think it's it's more likely attributed to the thing that makes the most reasonable sense. But i like to always think that there's something like something. I won't say more sinister going on but something more interesting happening that that makes it worth tuning into our show. I wouldn't i would like to say.

"A national park service cabin where he found some stocks of food to eat and he kind of he stayed in that cabin and eventually built up the strength to continue hiking towards civilization where he was eventually found so she. Yeah i mean so he. that's awesome. Yeah i i'm shocked. They didn't turn this into a movie. Or maybe they did but he apparently he had he carried took the parachute with him to keep warm. So amazing amazing story of survival but in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. A group of boy scouts hiking in the area found a canopy that authorities believed was. From steve's t thirty-three wreckage has never been found So this is wow. This is kind of interesting. So i'll say my questions i had was What happened to his jet. You know was it. Is it just lost in the wilderness. Now when i was doing research on this specific incident there was a lot of This was at the height of the cold. War was kicking off. We were kind of getting into a competition with the russians at this time and there was a lot of rumors that he sold the crash jet to the soviets and that he was kind of like a soviet double agent within the united states military might landed at somewhere and then he like built elaborate backstory as something like that yeah and he. He claimed that's totally not true. I you know i. It did experience Issues and i had to a checked. The thing that adds to the mystery will never know because he actually ended up dying in a plane crash only a few few years later. Nineteen sixty five. So was that plane. Crash suspect at all they. They claim it was just a mechanical issues with his plane and he went down with it. But veda the military. So okay which you know. I know i know i'm being i'm being no. I mean provocative. So like i said back. Then you know. These pilots would fly new and unproven jets a lot of times. It would go down or did was he a double agent and he was selling us military technology and they got rid of him. That's kind of what. I was getting that they found out. That actually was a double agent or selling secrets. And they're like He died in a plane crash. That's so weird. Yeah so it's just another strange incident that happened within the nevada triangle. So all right. Let's move on to our next incident. This one maybe. That's why there's no movie on it because you know. Cia hollywood especially back. Then we're totally tied in. They're not gonna make a movie about that if he's if he's the bad guy. Yeah it it would make for really interesting movie. Actually the whole him selling secrets and that faking. That would be a great move. Yeah so anybody listening. Who is a movie producer. Great idea re-adjust. I give us a shout out in the movie. Forgiving you the idea yeah The the pre was the producer that did the all the alien shows. Oh i can't. I can't remember his name.

"Because i i've been to many of his events seen him speak many many times and you know some reporters in texas now started to ask me and others always ask me like what's what's the is professional wrestling if you ever watch it. He's doing professional wrestling. Promos as political theater where you know he used to. He did a bit about taking a steel chair to the establishment itself. I mean it was. It was that like brazen. It wasn't even sort of subverted in their no it was. It was quite quite literally literally beating people over the head with these metaphors up and one of the things that happens in professional wrestling is if you have a gimmick in a certain area or territory whenever and it's not working you leave and you totally reinvent this new character to be somewhere else and i think that's what happened. We've never seen somebody to be so thorough on. The professional wrestling is exactly like politics. Sort of gimmick and that. And that's really what it is. Egypt he just got a new gimmick nia a new venue for it and and who knows you know if this doesn't work out there's plenty of other states in the union. There's plenty of other elections that every two years. It happens every two years so there are so. We have not heard the last dan road. Amer in on your point to your point in terms of his electoral performance. He didn't embarrass himself. You know When he ran for state senate in twenty eighteen he lost to a former member of the assembly who was Sort sort of neutrally regarded but he beat a former state senator Who who was sort of an inconsequential a state senator but nonetheless a name that people knew in nevada. He beat her to to come in second in that republican primary in two thousand eighteen and then in twenty twenty. He beat a field of candidates that included a former statewide elected official to win the nomination. So it's not like he is completely ridiculous and You know loses all the time and makes a fool so he actually has a record of winning certain primaries and so you know that he does have something to go on whether or not he should have may be stayed in nevada in run for another office and then sort of tried to build on that i think is another thing but i think you know i agree with you. I think he realized okay. Well i've tried twice once in a small district once in a larger district probably opposite of out should have been People are buying it here. Maybe it's time to move on to somewhere else and and this special election Sort of a gimme right. It's like the space between spaces. You know the twenty twenty ran than twenty twenty two loses this one he can still start gearing up for twenty twenty two and see what happens then so maybe someday we will see dan big. Dan wrote emmer in the congress of the united states. And if we do the plaque outside his office. I really hope has big. Dan in in quotation marks From whatever stadium prepar well.

It's weird dichotomy between primary politics and general election politics that you see in these racist that is very very interesting and obviously it is extremely early. they're definitely check out the story. There's plenty to close out of the one thing about santa ball was that he proved he could win in primaries and generals in he did so with the the opprobrium of the republican base I don't think i saw brian. Sandoval wants a republican convention in this state the whole time he was governor. I saw lieutenant governors. I saw congress members. I saw others. I never saw sandoval there. He just basically ignored me party. And bypassed it and I it didn't hurt him. It didn't hurt him because there were crossover republican votes. I'm sorry crossover democrat votes. That helped him out. So i think he is one of those rare people who if he decided to get into the race for senate would would be able to win a primary and And would be able to defeat laxa although that would be that would be kind of an interesting thing to watch how he would go about doing net but as you said i think his response is absolutely right on. He didn't have any interest in going to washington. Dc when he was serving as governor He served in all branches of nevada government. But i don't think he has even the slightest bit of interest in leaving. he loves the job. A you are He's one that job for a long time. And i don't think he is inclined to go absolutely anywhere now that he's he's got it so yeah so. I don't think we're going to be saying brian. Santa claus name on a ballot wanted to end on a little bit of a lighter note. We talked a couple episodes ago couple of weeks ago about the possibility reported that there was a possibility that dan road aymer who challenged suzy.

I is a very large primary field that it also includes the congressman's widow who is the favourite to win that race And basically he put forth one of his i. What's becoming a signature. Sort of style of ad out. That was that was pretty widely mocked and ridiculed. I would say did see republicans even like i figure i think it was actually congressman matt gates.

"They could get crossover votes. And each one has something You know mark hutchinson was the lawyer for those from two thousand seven. Two thousand eighteen recalls. That's kind of a black mark With him amway the congressional record and of course you know there's tons of stuff that you can deploy against day you know he you could say he talked a good game but voted with trump voted not to impeach trump. A couple of times and all that Ben key kaffir. I think it would be a great republican statewide candidate. He would have to spend a lot of money to improve his name. Recognition in other parts of the state. Same with heidi ganster. There're all the the problem with all for all those people is not generally it is. The primary is getting over that that big mountain climbing the everest. That is the republican primary. After that. it's it's. I'm not going say off down here because this is going to be a fairly formidable candidate. I think it is on ride. His gonna raise money. He's going to have a things that he did that That i think you can point to. He can point to that justifies reelection and so but they would be good. it would be good candidates. They would be good candidates. The problem for republicans is what happens if they nominee. I don't see on this list. We'll talk about senate second but the name adam lack laxa or a similar name does not appear on this list. And if there was an atom lack salt that person would be the favourite to win the primary. Let's just be honest about Adam lack laxa won the primary He by default. Nobody even decided to run against him because everybody in nevada knew that he was going to appeal to that. That party base now. I think his image has been shattered a little bit. I think he's been shown to a little bit to be a paper tiger after his performance against his lack which was abysmal. It was one of the worst campaigns. I think i've ever seen and certainly the worst campaign for governor in the state of nevada that i've seen since i've been covering in that's been going back a number of years so So someone like that. If there was a person who could excite the trump base who was a better candidate. And i don't know who this person might be that person i think would win a primary and so all of these folks talking amongst themselves is good. They've got to watch out for that x. factor though in and what who who that factor might be going forward. And i think that that could really be a problem in the primary but the general i is a completely different animal and and i think you know we've seen it before in two thousand ten Jim gibbons was running for a second term. And rory reid. The son of the senator Was the clark county commission chairman and he was running for governor against Against gibbons and some wise republicans in the state of nevada realized.

So we don't know you know one hundred percent worry stance but both hutch By hutch i refer to. Of course former lieutenant governor mark hutchison whose nickname such and in mark amady.

I wanna find out what's going on. What the you know if there were any laws broken. Let's let's hear about it. Which is very reasonable kind of thing especially for somebody who by training as a lawyer which avenue is and and for that he was tossed out so neither of these guys are in the trump campaign and to me. The trump issue still looms large. I think some of these candidates understand that in their own mindset you know the the trump base is a still a very significant part of the republican party. And they're going to have to get that base and that's got to be part of what they're discussing who can motivate that. Donald trump base Because you know. I it's it's really true. If you ran a moderate and i think mark hutchinson on many issues is a moderate. What would what trump. Ace stu would they turn out or would they or would they just not show up and i think the very real possibility is a lot of them would just not show up because they say look. The guy is a rhino.

"A lot of the power that they had maybe maybe twenty eight twenty sixteen but it did take years to sort of write that ship if you're a democrat and so there there is a lot at stake right away for the. Yeah definitely and the cd. Three race is a perfect example of of What we were talking about earlier You know you You you suzy. Lee is is a good democrat for that district because she's a moderate and There's a lot of people who are progressives who don't like moderates and think will wire their you know what's the point Of having a moderate democrat you might as well have a republican in there But But but honestly if you ran a if bernie sanders moved to southern nevada got gave up his mittens gave up. His jacket moved to southern nevada. in lived here and decided to run for congress in the in the third congressional district he'd have an uphill climb. It would be tough for bernie sanders to win notwithstanding the fact that he would have total progressive. Support the district currently drawn. And we'll see how it's drawn at the end of the summer when they re district the district is currently drawn would be a very tough sledding for bernie sanders And and i it's not as tough for sicily because of their ideological differences and so that's a perfect example. Now you have april becker Who is a good candidate. She was a very good candidate in that state. Senate race And i think she'll be a very good candidate for For this district assuming she wins the primary. You're gonna have to have somebody who can't be painted as a crazy out of touch socialist. Who wants to take away. Everybody's healthcare and give government healthcare You you if you have that kind of person who would be much easier for a republican challenger to to win that seat and certainly. It's happened many times before in the history of the third congressional district so that district has kind of a good example of the the consequences of of these kind of things. And what potentially could go wrong You need a etiological diversity in the party because of the ideological diversity of the districts and if you do a poor job of matching candidate to district you lose and the other side wins and And you know that may Be for for democrats again a disaster like it wasn't twenty sixteen with donald trump winning the presidency And so you know. These things have to be taken into consideration and the political realities of those things have to be taken into consideration. So i think that's that's that's gonna come into play For some of the central committee voters not all but some of the central committee. Voters will look at things outweigh and i think. See the the pragmatic reality of of what's going on there so that'll that'll be a factor share sharon and certainly as we always say we'll be watching it the next week and be the the following saturday coming from the saturday in which they actually you make this vote and you get a good sense of where the democratic party in nevada.

I get a lot of calls from people that want to settle that. And there are two things. Better important on the settlement side. See, there's some misleading things. You hear advertising on the radio and you see Advertising on television where you know things like all the credit cards have to settle your dad. If you have this debt, you know. They legally have toe, you know, allow you a certain amount of money off of what you owe to pay it and settle it, etcetera, etcetera. Those ads are all really misleading on the settlement side. Most of the opinion that it works like it doesn't on these commercials, and you can't just start settling a debt. Because your credit card interest rate is high or your balances or high. Get calls all the time on a, you know. Weekly basis. Someone policy. Listen, I've got $10,000 in credit card debt, and I can't afford to pay. Can you help me settle it? It's not possible to do that. Unless you're delinquent. There's no interest in the bank settling if your pain and your current Think about they're making the interest rate they're making the 15 16 18 20 or higher. Percent. When you're You know, credit card debt. The banks are not now. Nor are the ever motivated to cut your interest rate. A very rare thing to have Precisely how they make money. No once the financial collapse happened in eight Dodd, Frank came into place and interest rates were one of the only areas for credit card companies and lending institutions were able to make money. Understand this. They have zero motivation to lower your interest. Why would they cut their income down? Someone came here said, Listen. Hey, I want to But you paid by 50% You still get your job, but I'm gonna cut it. It's the motivation. He would you say? Yes. You're happy to do that. No problem. Not a problem. It's not not the way that Isse You to get lost. So why would the banks let you cut into their profits?.
