Dr. Raymond Moody & Paul Perry Join Melisa to Discuss What Happens When We Die
"So I have Dr. Raymond Moody and Paul Perry. Raymond A. Moody Jr. MD PhD is the leading authority of near -death experiences and the author of several books, including the seminal Life After Life. The founder of the Life After Life Institute, Moody has lectured on the topic throughout the world and is a counselor in private practice. He has appeared on many programs, including Today and Turning Point. Paul Perry has co -written several New York Times bestsellers, including The Light Beyond and Evidence of the Afterlife. He is also a documentary filmmaker, and for his film and the book about Salvador Dali. He has been knighted in Portugal, oh, that's interesting, a groundbreaking book, this is, that combines nearly 50 years of afterlife and near -death experience research to provide proof of the existence of the soul and life after death from psychiatrist and bestselling author of Life After Life. Dr. Raymond Moody and New York Times bestselling author, Paul Perry, after spending nearly five decades studying near -death experiences, Moody finally has the answer to humanity's most pressing question, what happens when we die? And in this book, Proof of Life After Life, both authors reveal that consciousness survives after the death of the body, featuring in -depth case studies, the latest research, and eye -opening interviews with experts. Proof explores everything from common paranormal signs to shared death experiences and much more. And you can learn more about each of these authors if you go to lifeafterlife .com or paulperryproductions .com. Welcome gentlemen, thank you so much for being with me today. Hi, thank you, nice introduction, appreciate it. Yeah, thank you. Thank you very much. So, first of all, okay, so, Raymond, you've been doing this since the 70s, am I correct in that? I'll just ask you each, you've been doing this work since the 70s? And what got you into wanting to explore near -death experiences? Well, fortunately, I was not exposed to religion when I was a kid, except very minimally. And so, I grew up with no idea of an afterlife. And so, I went to the University of Virginia at age 18 with intending to study astronomy, but took a philosophy course and immediately got hooked. And particular the book was Plato's Republic, which is, oddly, about a near -death experience. It culminates in a near -death experience of a warrior. And not just having no idea that anybody took the notion of an afterlife seriously, I asked my professor and he said that early Greek philosophers knew about cases of people who were believed dead and resuscitated. But had I no idea it still applied, but in 1965, in Charlottesville, I met a man who had such an experience, he was a professor of psychiatry there, and that really got me hooked and subsequent to that time, through my PhD in philosophy and then three years of teaching philosophy at a university, and then going to medical school and ultimately going into forensic psychiatry. But throughout that career, I've interviewed thousands and thousands of people who came to the brink of death and had these astonishing experiences. So that's how I got into it. It's amazing. It's really interesting. I can imagine it is a long process. And Paul, I'm going to ask you the same question. What made you interested in exploring this? Well, I was editing American Health magazine in New York City, this was in 1988, and Raymond and I shared the same agent, same book agent. One day our agent, Nat Sobel, called me and he said, would you like to write a book with Dr. Raymond Moody? And I said, I have no idea who Raymond Moody is. And he said, well, he's a man who named and defined the near -death experience. And I said, I'm sorry, I don't know what that is. And he said, well, you know, for a guy who's the editor of a major health magazine, you really need to get educated on things like the near -death experience, which was an offhand insult for an agent to talk like that. And so I said, sure, OK, I'll go meet Raymond. And Raymond was living in Georgia at the time. And I flew down to meet him and, you know, Raymond is an amazing person from the first time you meet him. And so we started writing this book called The Light Beyond, and I just got entranced by Raymond's account of near -death experiences and the stories we would hear. People would come by his house and tell their stories. And it just got amazing. So anyway, we wrapped up the book, The Light Beyond, and there was, in my estimation, a piece missing. And that was there was nothing in the book about children and near -death experiences. And Raymond said, well, nobody's done much research on that yet, except for one guy, a pediatrician in Seattle, Melvin Morris. And he connected me with Melvin. And I did a book with him called Closer to the Light. And it's all about children and near -death experiences. And after that, I wrote that book and then I thought, well, there's something missing here. There needs to be a larger study about people who have had near -death experiences and how they affect them during their life. So we wrote a book about that and on and on. Every book I would write, I would find a gap that needed to be filled. And that's gone now through, I think, 15 books on near -death experiences.

Eastern by Ronan Bergman and Adam Goldman ready for this Israeli really officials obtained Hamas's battle plan for the October 7 terrorist attack more than a year before it documents emails and interview show but Israeli military intelligence officials dismiss the plan is aspirational considering it too difficult for Hamas to carry out let me tell you what the New York Times did the Jerusalem Post has written two stories on this so the New York Times decides to leapfrog the Jerusalem Post gives them no credit whatsoever and goes and does a bunch of interviews on their own fine but I just want to understand how this has worked they say the approximately 40 page document which the Israeli authorities codenamed Jericho wall outline point -by -point exactly the kind of devastating invasion that led to the deaths of about 1 ,200 people writes the slimes it with me the translated document which was reviewed by the New York slimes did not for set a the date attack but described a methodical assault designed to overwhelm the fortifications around the Gaza Strip take over Israeli cities and storm key military bases including a division headquarters Hamas followed the blueprint was shocking precision the document called for barrage of rockets at the outset of the attack drones to knock out the security cameras and automated machine guns along the border and gunmen to pour into israel mas in paragliders on motorcycles and on foot all of which happened on October 7th also the included plan details about the location and size of israeli military forces communication hubs and other sensitive raising information questions about how a mosque gathered its intelligence and whether there were leaks Israeli security establishment stay with me I'm almost there the article goes on but I just want to stop it at the point that to me I need to emphasize because nobody else will ready the documented the documents circulated widely among intelligence leaders but experts determined that an attack at that scale ambition was beyond Hamas capabilities according to documents and officials it is unclear whether Prime Minister Benjamin Yahoo other top political leaders saw the document as well what's wrong with this article what's wrong with this article they the say front end of this that the battle plan for October 7 terrorist attack was more than a year in the making before it happened so that precedes October 7 2022 that proceed precedes October 7 2022 a year before the attack on October 7 2023 they also say that the document in the intelligence was known more than a year before the attack so again it precedes October 7 2022 and then five or six paragraphs down as I read to you they were they it's unclear whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or other top political leaders saw the document as well according by the way to the Jerusalem Post stories it's very unlikely that top government officials saw it because at the relatively senior intelligence level they dismissed much of it and they have didn't enough exactitude with respect to the date but putting that aside just for the moment that's not the article Benjamin Netanyahu was not the Prime Minister when this document came out he was not the Prime Minister quote more than a year before it happened that is the attack on October in 7th 2023 fact he wasn't able to organize a government until December 29th 2022 nowhere in this article certainly not at the front end do well we don't know whether the acting the Prime Minister at the time Bennett and coalition the government with Lapid and Gantz that is Bennett Lapid and Gantz what did they know since they ran the government and Bennett was the Prime Minister you a year well before the October 7 attack in other words what did the left -wing government in in Israel know when this information was supposedly being pulled together the document was was created you have to assume the senior Intel and IDF appointees appointees Mossad were the appointees either made by the left -wing Israeli government or left there by the left doing Israeli government there's not a word about them not a word about them ladies and gentlemen because the New York times the rest of the media in America and much the media in Israel want to put Netanyahu in prison like Trump never wanted him elected never wanted him to pull together the coalition government they attacked the their other parties as radical right -wing religious types Netanyahu yahoo and his coalition is constantly and ceasingly massively attacked by the New York Times and Thomas Friedman by the Biden regime before that the Obama regime because Netanyahu represents his people and Ehud Barak a disgraced former disastrous Prime Minister of the hard left has been campaigning in America even now as I speak during the war and was involved in raising dark money and organizing a coup against netanyahu in the prior netyahoo government for two years he's all over TV he's all over the newspapers here and in Europe Gantz gets a complete pass even though he was part of that government now he's part of the the war government lapid is a leftist a former TV announcer a leftist who's not part of the can't be trusted he's been to the United States trying to undermine their commander -in -chief netanyahu as well we have liberal democrats on cable even some as guests or hosts on MSNBC CNN and Fox when this October 7th is brought up immediately they start attacking netanyahu why because I have another piece I want to read to you very shortly it was in the Financial Times and here again the NBC News took the story this gentleman wrote and used the it as basis of gathering other information all these people in the media are just slimeballs they're sleazy what they are do their own work completely anybody it is unclear it is unclear whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu other top political leaders saw the document why don't they ask him but why don't they ask Bennett and Lapid and Gantz why don't they ask all of them even heard somebody who have enormous respect for on cable TV Netanyahu's future is over well he's at like 17 or 20 percent or 30 percent or because like that that every two or three days there's an article blaming him I'm not blaming anyone and I'm not not blaming anyone you're in

If You're a Marxist, You Cannot Be a Practicing Jew
"I just saw a report where Bernie Sanders is demanding that any aid to Israel will be conditioned on basically destroying Israel and in in that that report they said Bernie Sanders is Jewish. Jenny Raskin is quoted all over the place and Jenny Raskin as well as another cabal of Marxists in the house who are Jewish are demanding that Israel unilaterally cease firing a guy by the name of Noam Chomsky In my view as a Marxist he helped form one of these Jewish groups that you see on the Capitol month or so ago and so forth and they're Jewish by birth but they're not Jewish in any other way. If a guy called Thomas Friedman at the New York Times I'm going to talk a little bit more about him here who writes these unhinged columns When he writes them about Israel they all have the same thread. It's repetitive. It's almost illiterate. Yet he gets these Pulitzer Prizes. That the state of Israel shouldn't exist as it exists now that if you like anybody but radicals to that government then the governments are legitimate and should be overthrown and on and on and on. The same Thomas Friedman who was going to go If you're a Marxist or if you embrace Marxism in one in certain form or another. You cannot And Marx writes about violent revolutions. know their revolutions. the status quo. Most Marxists are also anti -Semites. He might say but some of them are Jews.

The Media Has Lost Its Mind When It Comes to Hamas and Israel
"You know, it's amazing to watch the way the media processes everything that's happening in Israel right now. That terror attack on October 7th, just the most horrific thing that really any country could imagine. 1400 Israelis killed many American citizens among them and just just brutalized by the terror group Hamas. And the media has lost its mind. They have no skepticism whatsoever of claims made by Hamas, but they have tons of skepticism for anything Israel says. Have you noticed The New York Times has a piece up today that says Israeli army takes journalists on controlled visit to Gaza hospital right away. They're trying to prejudice your take on the story. They want you to know that is Israel rigging this story. That's the way The New York Times presents this. Almost 48 hours after entering Gaza's largest medical complex, the Israeli military escorted journalists from The New York Times through a landscape of wartime destruction Thursday night to a stone and concrete shaft on its grounds with a staircase descending into the earth. Evidence had said of a Hamas military facility under the hospital. Sure. Do hospitals normally have stone and concrete shafts with staircases descending into the earth. Underneath them. Is that a normal thing for a hospital? Like, you're curious at all about that. But Colonel Elad Suri, the commander of Israel's 7th Brigade, said Israeli forces fearing booby traps had not ventured down the ...shaft at the hospital, Al -Shifa. He said it had been discovered earlier in the day under a pile of sand on the northern perimeter of the complex. In the darkness, it was unclear where the shaft led or how deep it went, although the military ... had sent a drone down at least several meters. Electrical wiring was visible inside along with a metal staircase. The controlled ... not settle the question of whether Hamas, the armed Palestinian group that rules Gaza, has been using Al -Shifa hospital to hide weapons and command centers as Israel has said. What? So what more evidence do you need? You know, Israel has laid out something that has sort of been widely known in the first place, which is that facilities Hamas uses like schools and hospitals as a means to carry out their terror attacks and then produce human shields to protect the vile military actions that they're taking, terror actions that they're taking. And so Israel says they're doing this from the hospital. We don't believe you, says the New York Times. OK, come with us to the hospital. They take him to the hospital and they say, look, there's the tunnel. Why would there be a tunnel built under this hospital?
Biden's Climate Obsession Blinds Intelligence
"To its intelligence advisory board a task for the tracks national security issues and executive orders that required the intelligence community to assess security risk posed by climate change may have contributed America's to failure to spot Hamas' planning beforehand. Hamas has been planning the attack for over a according year to reports. This world faces unprecedented threats from the Biden administration. The Biden administration is shifting intelligence and defense assets to focus on climate change. And while that was happening in the United States, in Israel Ehud Barak had been leading a three -year coup should Netanyahu win the prime ministership again and build a coalition for three years with the help of the Democrat Party in the United States, with the help of the New York Times Thomas and Friedman, with the help of J Street and other organizations of self -hating Jews, the Jewish vote, and by the way an attorney by Noam Chomsky. Look him up. See who he is. I do my homework. The media do not. While they were leading a coup, while they were leading a revolution, while they were leading a civil war against

Dennis is joining me today. Dennis Porter. Welcome to the show. How are you today? I'm doing excellent. Just coming back from a break. So are ready to dive into a jam -packed week of back -to -back calls Yeah, nice and tan back from your travels, right? Yeah, this is as tan as I get too So it's like, you know, ten days ten days in the Sun and this is as good as it gets So just everyone's prepared for that Are you ready to jump back into the Bitcoin grind or did you like really stop when you were vacationing? I oh, I never really truly fully stopped working the tweets keep coming, huh? Yeah It's an unfortunate byproduct of working in a 24 -7 365 non -stop nascent ever faster moving Industry that is Bitcoin Bitcoin mining when it combines two crazy worlds the one that I work in which is Bitcoin Bitcoin mining side which is the 24 -7 365 thing and then it's the Political realm which is just a total mess all the time. So it's a great combo. Yeah, I remember talking I want to stay sane Yeah, exactly my point. I was about to make you took the words out my mouth I remember talking to you like a year ago about the political side of things I was like, I don't know why anyone would ever want to get in that world at all. You're like, oh, I love it I love the I love the pool. I love being in the midst of it and still today don't get it Probably won't ever but I'm glad there's people like you who care about it And we you know agree on most things when it's firstly when it comes to Bitcoin mining so glad that's there Okay was transition over to Satoshi Action Fund. So you're the president and CEO you founded it. It's been two years Or so, it's a little over a year. We launched in June of last year and I am yeah I'm the president CEO I say CEO and president of Satoshi Action I'm there are two organizations now actually one is Satoshi Action Fund and one is Satoshi Action Education one I'm the CEO of and one of the president of so for simplicity's sake we just say it's all under the Satoshi Action umbrella But yeah, it's been going really really well We've had a ton of success and I'm sure we'll jump into that But I launched that in June of last year and we've been off to the races ever since Yeah, let's go into a little bit and then we have much more talking to show specifically We brought you on to talk about all the recent headlines with like rural Bitcoin mining and like the pushback We had a New York Times article about that there's some stuff in Arkansas going on So we'll get to that probably towards the second half of the show But let's talk about Satoshi Action Fund some wins recently and then maybe like a little more Flushed out what you guys are trying to to work on is like the product if you could say that for I guess a lobbying organization Yeah, yeah I mean it's good and that's that's probably one good area to start though with when it talk what comes talking about Satoshi Action is The one big difference between us and let's say like a lobbying organization or even a trade association Is that we don't we don't actually like do most of the lobbying. In fact, we hire lobbyists and we don't have members We have donors like more or less the premise of Satoshi Action Is that if you believe in the mission that we have pursued which is to make the United States? One of the best places in the world to be a Bitcoin miner or to be a Bitcoin er Then you want to support us if you agree with you know having the opportunity to stay here in America That's thriving off of this new technology versus being forced to move abroad You know that again is why I created Satoshi Action I think it's why people buy buy into the vision and the mission of what we're doing but we're very very structured very very different from from any of these other organizations that you might see out there and Once we launched Satoshi Action, the first thing that we wanted to do was try to go out there and show Right off the bat. What could we do? How could we be successful? How could we show that we can be effective because one of the most dangerous things that you can do with a political organization is You know get out there do all this, you know, make all this noise and then you don't produce any results You can do that a couple times you can even do it for years But eventually people will grow tired and they will move on and they will want to hear from someone else They will want to see someone else produce results There's definitely two the unfortunate part about politics Is there sort of two things you have to do one is you do have to produce results and the other is you have to? market your results market even what you're trying to do so that you can get people to buy into that they should buy into what you're trying to accomplish and fund essentially fund your operation because 100 almost 100 percent aside from our like You know, two three little s19 miners that we have plugged in that were donated to us The vast majority of our money comes from either donations or people that we get to come to our events was essentially a form of a donation So we rely a lot on on our donors to support the work that we do on a constant basis But right away we wanted to make sure that we were proving to our donors that we were having success So we said, okay, what can we do? We we got to the drawing board right away We brought on Eric Peterson who is our current policy director. Who's a wizard on the policy world and We had my two co -founders Mandy and Syria and we sat down we were like, alright, what are we gonna do? We started crafting public policy model policy For the Bitcoin Bitcoin mining space and what that means is that we created sort of like this like, okay here is a Example of a bill you could pass in your state that helps you advance this industry You know what we would do is we'd go in we'd say okay We have this great bill that we wrote up and we think you should pass it It'll really help you and they'll say like, you know, why would you want me to do that? Like we go in we pitch we say okay Bitcoin mining is great for jobs Great for local investment grid stability environmental cleanup the ability to enhance green and renewable energy projects really any energy project But policymakers particularly like when you can help solve some of the problems with green energy And then we win then we give them that bill the most popular of those bills that we did We know we have four of them Two of them have sort of moved or I should say three of them have moved around like have been introduced Or been worked on at the state level So far only one has passed into law which is a very big accomplishment but not to say only one but yeah I'm pretty yeah, it's pretty big deal Yeah, just one. It's just one of dates. So yeah so in then, um that bill ended up being called our right to mine bill initially originally was called the Digital Protection Act and then it transformed into becoming the rights mind bill and essentially that bill just protects Bitcoin miners from various forms of discrimination We saw real -time discrimination taking place across the country and we created real -time protections for that form of discrimination And we ended up being able to pass that bill into law in two states, Arkansas and Montana in fact in Montana is one of the states where Two things happen one. We actually saw some of the discrimination taking place where I don't know if you heard of the Missoula County there Where they changed the zoning laws and they like went drove a twenty million dollar bank when mining operation completely bankrupt because of it so Completely wiped them out all because they were concerned about things that were not true about Bitcoin mining, you know environmental concerns Oftentimes we see at the local level not necessarily in Montana But a big one is a concern is around Chinese mining particularly CCP mining I should say not Chinese owned but just that they're concerned that the CCP controls them So we saw real -time discrimination taking place in Montana We solved that problem the other problem. The other thing we discovered while we're there that we learned is That we can add things to this bill And we'll get into sort of like where we got to from that point But it was an important moment in the history of Satoshi action We added in a ban on any additional taxes on Bitcoin when uses a form of payment Which is critical because in the state of Montana, you know If you let's say you sell me a car like they'll tax that like peer -to -peer transaction Let's tax it like right off the top. So if I just sell you some Bitcoin or pay you in Bitcoin They would do the same thing. They'd be like, oh are we you owe us a tax for that? So we banned that which was great. And um, yeah, we'll talk about a little later but that was our big initial success huge success a small tear came down my eye when I When I passed my first bill into law Eric was like, you know done 10 ,000 times So he didn't he didn't really care as much but it was it was a big moment But I was like, we've done it. We've done it, you know, like he was like, ah Alright now I'm time for the next one right? So yeah right to mine. How'd you guys come up with that? It's like a very it's very catchy right and it's hard to argue against that Yeah, I don't know. I just can't use Brilliant top ahead. Okay, I came up with it sent it to I sent it to someone and said hey You should call this right to mine. I didn't even we didn't publicize it a really large news account I said hey just call it right to mine. That makes more sense. Yeah, and they did and then it just took off. Yes It was interesting for sure it's very amenable in a good way Okay, so you guys have passed some bills you're creating like this donor network to be able to to move it forward You've told me about a few wins here. I want to hear about some of like the obstacles which you already kind of alluded to so and we'll get to that later in the show the discrimination which we're seeing pop up right now, whether it be Chinese Bitcoin miners who are being Unfairly maligned for being associated with the CCP or not. And then also just like other Bitcoin miners who are unwelcome in certain areas But to the obstacles, what are some things that you've sort of like learned about why you come through this process creating Satoshi Action Fund and moving forward into these different these different State houses to lobby on behalf of Bitcoin Yeah, I would say that an overarching theme to the work that we do is that Things can go wrong very quickly and can be can be unrecoverable. They can be recoverable, but they can also be unrecoverable You know politics is very much like the real world so when real -world actions occur, there will be Consequences or there will be you know, either good or bad, right? You'll have good things or bad things happen because of real -world actions I'll give an example of a positive real -world example that Leads to us to do where we are today having a lot of success and that is the current consistent worry and fear around central bank digital currencies, so for some reason Which I definitely am aware of I Can't share too much on the story but definitely aware of a lot of Americans became very very concerned around central bank digital currencies and so Eventually, what happened was you had governors across the country including Governor Noem and Governor DeSantis eventually Working to ban central bank digital currencies at the state level There was this big huge kerfuffle around it and everyone was like doing everything they could to like stake their claim Literally Governor Noem took out like a steel Stamp of like a veto stamp and was like like stamped it into the bill. Like it was very it was very cool Actually, I loved it. Um so all of a sudden this like firestorm picks up where central bank digital currencies become this thing that Generally, I would say conservatives are against or Republicans are against but like really really opposed to like hyper opposed to it more so than I have seen anything in the The crypto space broadly I would I would consider CC central bank digital currencies to sort of be adjacent to the to the crypto space and because of that fervent Fear and concern around central bank digital currencies we've actually been able to use it as an effective way to demonstrate the value of Bitcoin because What happened was initially when they said Oh central bank digital currencies are a problem people started to say oh Well Bitcoin is a digital currency Is that also going to have the same problems as a CBDC and of course, we know we started education right away No These things are like way way different and then we just started to realize that it was best to classify them as polar opposites because they literally are like one is You know authoritarian sort of at least you when used on the retail level go ahead Yeah, send a CBDC between a bank or an institution. I don't I don't care at all force it on individuals In the United States without proper regular regulations and regulatory frameworks and then all of a sudden you have something that could be used in a way that you know is Sort of unimaginable to some extent to manipulate human behavior. So We started saying okay, these things are opposite and now when we're going into these states and we're saying okay, you should pass this bill It's pro Bitcoin. Also, it's anti CBDC people are like, oh hell yeah, let's go like we want to pass that bill So that's what that's one positive example of like how real -world things have had a really positive impact on what we're doing There's a lot of headwinds around creating or doing anything that you can to oppose CBDCs and so and as we pitch Bitcoin Bitcoin mining and You know all of our digital asset policy where there's always that thought in mind of how can we tie this into? Concerns around CBDCs which are valid and are linked We are not making some sort of leap here Bitcoin and CBDCs couldn't possibly be more more polar opposite. Gotcha Tell tell me about the some other stories Involving I have one video in mind of you going to Montana and speaking in front of Yeah, and there was someone before you who was just like going off and like kind of rabid It was good. And then you came in after and like kind of calmly presented some is Counter information this typically how the process is? Because I just think you are basically working in like the Parks and Rec version of Bitcoin. You have to like go deal like these Officials and like they don't know anything about it and they're like China bad Bitcoin bad That's that's my understanding every time I see this which is a really unfair characterization of it, but it's also it's stuck in my mind So lay it on yeah. No, it's it's you got you got it. You nailed it, right? Is the funnest example of Just how wild that can be out there So we go and we are getting ready to testify and every time we testify You know Especially because it's around Bitcoin mining we do get some sort of pushback usually at the local level typically from environmental groups Which is unfortunate because there's so much. I mean everybody knows in the mining space There are so many benefits from the methane component to balancing renewables to balancing the grid there's so many benefits that the You know Bitcoin mining space can offer to those that have come from even staunchly environmental the staunchly environmental realm so Needless to say there was two Opponents strong opponents to the bill one was a gal from an environmental group. She didn't get too out of control but the second guy he was a young a young gentleman from from Montana not originally and he worked at UCLA and he Was very opposed to Bitcoin and he started to go on this like speech like this really long drawn -out like monologue and Eventually at one point he says that that Montana will will like Die on the cross of Bitcoin essentially, right? It'll burn on the cross of Bitcoin I can't remember the exact word he uses but it's like very extreme very dramatic and Then he goes on to say that people are dying because of Bitcoin mine houses. I wish the camera was on me There's these cameras in every single Hearing room generally speaking every state Capital building when you're testifying in front of these hearings like they have cameras just like DC but obviously a lot lower tech But I just remember when he said that people are dying because of it He was so people are dying because of Bitcoin. He was so serious about it I just remember looking down my notes and just my face looked looking up at him was like So confused and I just wish the camera would have caught it because it would have been a perfectly it would have been a meme Like forever, but yeah, fortunately, there's a lot of great policymakers out there and actually, you know sometimes you love to rag on these guys, but You know, they do a good job a lot of these guys. They do a good job one guy asks him he says You know, he tries to run out actually that's part of the stories and this is important part of the story So let me backtrack so he finishes his speech. He tries to leave right away, which you don't do never do very rude tries to leave And as he gets to the door one of the people was like hey before you go even you usually we do questions at the End let's have you do some questions right now. We want to be able to talk to you a little bit Bring him back up to the podium He's like now son You made some pretty egregious claims there around Bitcoin mining Do you have anything to back up the statement that Bitcoin mining is killing people and the guy just is like well I don't have it here with me, but I can I can get it to you and He just like this this guy just is like, I mean you gotta remember this you see you sell a guy's like 22 years old he's a kid. Yeah Great great on him though. Great. Love the love the getting active at a young age, but he's just like son if You're gonna come in here and make egregious claims. You better have something to back it up and The kid just was like so upset like cuz he just got he's gave this great speech And he wanted to just walk out like drop the mic and walk out So he just blew him up I was anyways, it was it was definitely the most entertaining moments in the entire history of my experience And it's only been a year and a half So I I'm really looking forward to other stories that I can tell in the future Please catalog all these because I just like very Specifically remember watching that entire video and laughing pretty hard because it was it was pretty funny Okay, let's keep diving into this a little bit more. What have you been seeing in a lobbying front? That's been sort of helpful that you would encourage other people to look at we've had the call lines We've had the emails. We've had people going speaking to people I Think for the Bitcoin community we can all take like a breather and be like a lot of what we've been doing has not been working What has been working to speak with these people in state houses who need to learn about Bitcoin because Bitcoin's coming their backyard What has been working from your year and a half of doing this actively and putting boots on the ground? The things that have helped the most are Well, first of all getting clear of FTX collapse. I mean that is this is what I just tweeted this out yesterday. It's like I Still can't believe that we passed two bills into law in the middle of that collapse and it was a very testy time in the space so getting clear of FTX is Only gonna help us the other is just the way we Approach the conversation around Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining the way we pitch it is that we really focus on the benefits We do not talk about the technical side We do not try to explain how Bitcoin or Bitcoin mining works We give a very brief overview if they want more information Of course, we will dive deeper with them and we are very good at doing that you always have to be ready for those questions, but It's very important to just keep it as simple as possible Most of these policymakers have not made up their minds at all about any of this stuff They hear it in the news over there. They're their nephews trading crypto You know, like they're it's like they've got stuff all over the place, you know, you got some hardline anti -crypto anti -bitcoin Democrats You know, you've got some vocal Republicans, but they're not really like hardline yet. Like there's just not a lot of like really built -in statements or viewpoints on this on this technology and So what we do is we just go in and we say okay like Out of everything you've heard a lot of some of it is true some of it is not but most importantly what we're here to do is try to explain to you the value of Bitcoin mining for your state so we pitch Bitcoin mining and we it's a five benefits I mentioned earlier it can bring jobs local investment great stability Environmental cleanup and the ability to enhance green and renewable energy projects and out of those five No one ever says anything bad about it But out of those five usually a policy maker will say oh What kind of jobs does it make or like, you know, oh I I didn't know it could clean up the environment it's like an instant like gateway to being able to have a conversation about something they care about because usually you're hitting on something there like if it's not the economy if It's not the environment if it's not energy like at the local state level like those topics are huge Because the vast majority of energy policy is set at the state level. The vast majority of job creation is done at the state level And then a lot of this these like sort of decisions around how much green energy they're going to be building done at the state Level a lot of environmental stuff done in the state level Yeah, DC throws around big pockets big buckets of money at everybody and they certainly have regulations But a lot of these decisions are made by local state policymakers And so they care if they care a lot about these issues probably themselves, but also their voters care a lot about those issues Particularly the jobs one comes up a lot because we we know in the mining space that we create a lot of rule And jobs and jobs and economically depressed zones where it's very difficult to create jobs nearly impossible to create like long -lasting jobs So the moment you say oh we create jobs in rural areas. They're like boom the brain turns on like well How do you do that? Because that's really important to me As an example in New Hampshire, we've I've been there a few times now In the there's an area called the North Country. There's like no jobs It's a whole thing like they call it jobs for the North Country is like one of their pitches So when we go there and we talk about Bitcoin mining, we're like jobs for the North Country jobs for the North Country It's because it's true and it's something they care a lot about so that yeah, that's that's generally how we pitch it We do not talk about Too much about Bitcoin in the past We haven't talked too much about Bitcoin to the extent that it's like oh you're gonna need this because it's good as hedge for inflation or XYZ like we sort of stay away from that and focus on things that Like mining that we know will deliver value now, we've expanded our policy. We've expanded the way that we that we talk about it But we haven't gone into this new legislative cycle yet So yeah, that was all done everything that we just talked about that we've done and that we have done It was done in early 2023. We prep for it in early 20 or in late 2022 Now we are prepping for 2024 in late 2023 So we got we sort of have an idea of where things are gonna go and what we're gonna do and we're in a really Great position. In fact, we could be active in up to 20 states we probably won't be active in that many but we have the opportunity to be active in up to 20 states and as a Form of context we only introduced law or excuse me introduced policy in seven states, so we were only able to actually convince seven states to Try to pass our bills Whereas like this cycle, I think that number will be closer to like 10 or 15 only seven states That sounds like a lot of airline miles to me so it can be yeah. Yeah, this seems seems like a lot of work Okay, so we got a lot of that laid out Let's go and talk about some of the more aggressive headlines We've seen recently and we're speaking about the New York Times article that dropped to believe a week ago for listeners Check out that in the show notes will include that I think we also talked about the news roundup last week Essentially, there's a Cheyenne Wyoming based Bitcoin miner They are owned and operated by a Chinese national group that has some ties according to the New York Times to the Chinese Communist Party essentially the story boiled down to Microsoft is near this plant it's Bitcoin mining plant the US government has a missile siloed nearby an Air Force base nearby and Microsoft is worried that this Bitcoin mining base could be used for foreign intelligence reasons Then we also have the story down in Arkansas, which we'll get down to in a second But let's start with this first one this this thing with Chinese nationalist groups Bitcoin mining obviously to to you and I is more of an energy game and it's very simple, right? It's just like plugging machine. Let it hash I'm gonna collect some Bitcoin and then there's those five benefits you talked about to outsiders though. They're not thinking about that They're thinking about all these people coming into rural areas and even foreign investment Has that been a struggle when you've been talking to lobbyists groups or talking to people in state houses have they brought this up to you? Yeah, definitely it's um, it's a major concern I would say Most Americans like average American especially rural Americans care a lot about the encroachment of the CCP on on the United States from from a physical perspective so like from a geographical perspective they don't like the idea of a CCP owned controlled or even highly influenced business You know being next to them and then definitely not being in and around me sort of military installations I believe the location in Cheyenne is near a Also, is that the one that's also near a nuclear plant or a nuclear missile site as well? So yeah, something like that Yeah, so I share the concern like that I think the premise is like Do you want foreign adversaries to be in and around any sort of? Military installation any sort of critical infrastructure You know generally I like my stance is like I'm very like pro people coming here starting their businesses You know trying to accomplish the American dream, but at the same time We also have to be concerned about whether or not those businesses have strong links to You know the CCP or you know A lot of people care a lot about also like Russian oligarchs and their ability to influence America American politics American infrastructure you know the big argument today is that the electrical infrastructure is a critical part of national security and That we need to be doing everything we can to protect it and I agree I think that's important all of those things are important that we should we should keep an eye on them The the thing that I don't like is when the New York Times tried to spin this article as if like Bitcoin mining was some sort of like really powerful tool in the hands of the CCP like next to these sites I don't think it really matters what business was there.
A highlight from Ben Stein (Continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Have you heard that some people have a nose for news? Well, Eric has a nose for everything. That's why this is called The Show About Everything. Now welcome your host, who definitely passes the smell test, Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to hour two. It is my privilege to continue talking to Ben Stein, who has been reminding me of many things that I'd forgotten. First of all, we're talking about his brand new book about Richard Nixon. It's called The Peacemaker. I cannot wait to read it. I'm I would love to do that once I have read it. But I want to tell you, when you just mentioned your role in the film Expelled, I cannot believe I forgot about that, because that is a film that a lot of the people that I'm friends with have been in that film. And it makes the case clear as a bell that there's no way that we got where we are without a creator. You know, you don't have to believe it's the same creator that I do. But the idea of atheism is dead. I wrote a book called This Atheism Dead. I'm going to send you a copy. But I love all that. And I forgot that you were in the film, Expelled. A lot of people listening to this audience saw the film Expelled. And so I want to talk to you about everything. Let's go back to the malfeasance of The New York Times and other former journalists. Sure, sure. They've always been creeps. And as you so aptly said, they were defending Stalin's mass, mass, mass murders. Their columnists, who I think I think it was later revealed was an actual, either an actual member of the Communist Party or was in some way paid by the Communist Party, Mr. Duranty. This is like you're making it up. I'm not making this up. No, we're not making this up, no. But what I'm going to say, because we've talked about on this program, there's a there's a fantastic film about this, about Duranty and the Ukraine famine. It's Mr. Jones, directed by Agnieszka Holland. Tremendous film, came out about four years ago. And it talks about this. I want to get this. Walter Duranty, not only was he, you know, how do you put it? I mean, he was working for The New York Times, living in Moscow. He was openly a Satanist. That sounds like something you'd make up, right? There was there orgies. It's obvious that Stalin was, I've read about this, yeah, was paying him off and so on and so forth. But the point is that he was reporting for The New York Times, won a Pulitzer Prize for this propaganda. They never rescinded the Pulitzer Prize. The New York Times, of course, was behind the 1619 project. So it's it's it's painful to think it's very painful.
Hamas Ally CAIR Operating Inside America for Past 30 Years
"Response to October 7 attack and you can hear this from Democrats and the media you can hear it from Biden and Blinken of course they were right to defend themselves but then again they don't multiple speakers called for the destruction of Israel this is care and by implication the Jewish people there by demanding Palestinians take all lands the from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea Awad who Nihat Awad is the national executive director of care he was at that meeting in Philadelphia with the other Hamas figures terrorists and that's where they hatched the idea of creating care as well as infiltrating our colleges and universities and the media and they've done a great job of it and this guy Awad was front and center delivering a fiery speech bashing Israel and Biden for not calling on Israel to stop bombing Hamas targets inside which Gaza he called genocidal attacks remember this guy is Hamas he threatened to hurt Biden at the ballot box in 2024 if he does not urge a ceasefire so they're blackmailing Biden either you allow us to slaughter the Jews in Israel without repercussions or we're going to vote against you that's what we have in the United States now just like the 1930s just like the Nazis had infiltrated our schools and our media in the New York Times sat silently as did the rest of the media notice there's no he a wad said we have discovered the language that Biden has no ceasefire no votes he bellowed to the crowd which erupted in a chant repeating his words also a wad promised to provide legal support to Muslim Americans who protest in support of Palestine we are with you the people of Gaza rely on your voices and activism were you getting that money from me what are we getting the money from had in the 1990s in Philadelphia at the airport Marriott I think it was you're getting your money from overseas I'm just show us protesters later marched in the White House where they defaced the white brick gate of the executive mansion with red paint symbolizing the blood of Gazans who have died from the Israeli armies counter -attacks a what is on record declaring his support Hamas a bit at Barry University in 1994 for example he said I am in of support the Hamas movement care did not respond request to for comment but without addressing specifics it is previously
A highlight from George C. Wolfe - 'Rustin'
"Monarch Legacy of Monsters, an Apple Original Series. The world is on fire. I decided to do something about it. On November 17th. This place, it's not ours. Believe me.

The New York Times' Ben Brantley has described him as a brilliant stage director, arguably the best now working in the American theater. The Los Angeles Times declared, there are few living talents who could be viewed as as much of a New York theater institution. Interview Magazine said it would be difficult to overstate his status on Broadway, and Tony Kushner proclaimed that he is the premier theater artist of my generation. And those are just the quotes about his work in theater. There are many more about his work in film. But without further ado, would you please join me in welcoming to the SCAD Savannah Film Festival and to the Hollywood Reporters Awards Chatter Podcast, Mr. George C. Wolfe. Mr. Wolfe, thank you so much for coming to Savannah. Glad to be here, glad to. Let's just start at the very beginning. Where were you born and raised, and what did your folks do for a living? I was born and raised in Frankfort, Kentucky. My mother was a teacher, and she later became a principal of the schools. I went to that school. She taught me. It was horrifying. My father worked for the state government, and that's that. For the first eight years of your life, the town in which you grew up was segregated. Yes. You have spoken about wanting to go see a movie, 101 Dalmatians, and not being able to do that because of your race. Well, my grandmother was this incredibly ferocious figure who would take on anybody. I telling remember her that I wanted to go see 101 Dalmatians at the Capitol Theater. I remember her calling and them telling her no. It was sort of startling and shocking and fascinating because it was the first time I'd ever see her come into contact with a no. So that was fascinating. But then it integrated, and then at one point, when I went to high school, I was editor of the high school newspaper, and I went and convinced the man who ran the Capitol Theater that I should go see movies for free so that I could write reviews. He said, but by the time the review comes out, the movies will be gone. I said, but it's cultivating a love of movies, and so that's what my column will do. It was my slight payback because then I got to go see movies for free. I love it. Let's talk, though, there's a moment you've described over the years. You were in fourth grade, and your, at that time, all black grade goes to an all white class. But that time, I think it was probably a little bit older, so I got about the PTA and the singing. Well, I think by that time, Frankfurt was integrated, but I still went to this black school which was connected to a university there. And the principal, this woman named Minnie J. Hitch, you told us, because we were going to be singing a song, and the lyrics were these truths we are declaring that all men are the same, that liberty is a torch burning with a steady flame. And she told us that when we got to the line that liberty is a torch burning with a steady flame, we should sing it with a ferocity and that we would shatter all racism in the room. So I literally remember these truths we are declaring that all men are the same, that liberty is a torch, you know. And then racism was gone. And racism was gone, exactly. They were all transformed. But it sort of was like so cluelessly wonderful for somebody to tell someone that young that if you say words and if you say them with power and conviction, you can change people. And that sense of potency of conviction and language was embedded in me, and it's never left. When did you see your first theatrical production that was done professionally? When I was 12 or 13, my mother went to do some advanced degree work at NYU, and she brought me a log, and it was one summer. And so I saw a production of West Side Story that was done at the State Theater at Lincoln Center. Then I saw a production of Hello Dolly with Cab Calloway and Pearl Bailey. And then I saw a production, as it turns out, from the Public Theater and Mobile Unit that Cleavon Little played Hamlet. Wow. And it was done in Washington Square Park. Wow. And some in respect, each of those three productions had, I think, a lasting impact on a kind of aesthetic. Right. And the thing interesting about the Mobile Unit, it was free. And so it was seeing the rawness of that energy of the audience was also very, it was very, very, really wonderful and really interesting and great. So the throughout rest of your time in high school, you were increasingly involved in theater and school. I don't know if it was specific, I think, was it writing, directing, acting? What were you focused on at that point? Acting and directing. And also it's very interesting because when I went to that high school, I stuttered really intensely. So this is one thing I was talking about earlier. So they decided that I was stupid because I stuttered. And so they called my mother over to the school to say, and they wanted to put me in remedial classes. And she says, are you crazy? No, that's not happening. And so I developed an Evita complex. So I said, by the time I leave this school, I will be running it. And so I was editor. I was drum major. I was the worst drum major since the dawn of time. I just, you know, I was editor of the newspaper, of the literary magazine. I just did all these stubs just to, you know, how dare you dismiss? I could tell. And I never heard the story about them calling my mother over, but I could tell I was being disregarded. Right. I sensed it. And I went, no. So you start college in Kentucky and then move to Pomona and California. What at that time? This is there. Oh, yeah. We're doing the whole thing. Exactly. What was the idea of going out to California? Was it just to have a change of scenery or did you were you already thinking maybe that's where you go if you want to be in show business? No, not at all. I had always dreamed of going to New York. I would I would watch, you know, TV shows that were set in New York, like the Dick Van Dyke Show. And I remember this is kind of neurotic and crazy. But I what I really I was obsessed with Disney and I wanted to have my own amusement park. But I wanted money. I knew you need a lot of money. So I decided that actors made a lot of money. This is when I was seven or eight. And so and I knew the actors starved. So when I was seven or eight, I used to practice not eating. So that when I went to New York, this is insanely true that, you know, that I so I could deal with it, you know. Well, little did I know one doesn't need to practice starvation. So you graduate from Pomona, go to L .A. for a little while to do theater, to do theater. OK, now theater, as I guess you quickly concluded, is primarily in New York. Well, yeah, I mean, at one point I did shows and I started to get some good reviews in the L .A. Times. And then I got called in. I don't even remember for to be a writer on a sitcom. And and I and I said something funny and they said, oh, he's quick. We're going to have to tie one hand behind his back. And I took that literally. And that's when I went I'm moving to New York. You know, I just was it was like time to go time to go time to go confront a whole bunch of other stuff and things I need to learn and get smarter about. Well, so, OK, you move. It's 1979. You're in your 20s. You moved to New York. Early 20s. Early 20s. Right, right, right. Very early. In fact, I was 19. I was just pretending to be 20. Something like that. Yeah. You moved to New York. There are a number of years then after moving there that were we can say lean. You got to put into practice not eating so much. You what said once quote, I came to New York to write and direct. And when I got here, a lot of my rage came out. Close quote. What do you mean by that? Well, it's so interesting because in L .A., it's you know, it's you know, there's more space. So so, you know, poverty and wealth are very much so separated. And then in New York, it's, you know, they're next door to each other. And the intensity of the inequity at the time, plus the fact that I had no real power over my existence, sort of magnified all of that. And I remember I remember seeing I remember at one time seeing this image of this of this woman in a fur coat. It was winter and eating chocolates and there was a subway vent and there was this homeless woman sitting there. And she had newspaper wrapped around her legs instead of boots. And she was like like crazy and was like and just seeing those two images next to each other. It's you know, it's the thing about New York. Every single time you step foot outside your front door, you see somebody who is worse off than you and you see somebody who is living a completely different life to you. So you have you get instant perspective whether you want it or not. So in those those leaner years, you are teaching a little bit. You're going to get your own MFA at NYU Tisch in dramatic writing, your... Dramatic writing and musical theater and a double MFA. And then there's a opportunity to have a work of yours produced for the first time at Playwrights' Horizon, which is a big deal. Playwrights? No. And how did that go? Well, it it was interesting. It was it was ultimately the best thing that could have happened for my career. I didn't direct it. I wrote the I wrote the book and I wrote the lyrics for it. And it and there were things that in the rehearsal process that I. And also, when I first came to New York, I said, I'm a writer and director, and they said, no, you can't do both. You have to focus in on one. I said, but I could do both. And they said, no, you can't. So I focused just on the writing. So then I there were things that were happening in the rehearsal room that I knew weren't right. But in the spirit of ra ra ra, getting along and being good guy and all this sort of stuff, I didn't object. And then I remember there was a tornado passing through New York City on the day my bad review came out. So I'm standing on the corner of 95th and Broadway with the winds blowing. I'm reading this hate review. And it was so very painful. But it was really interesting because it was very good for me because, you know, I went, oh, if this happens again, if I get another bad review. And of course, I've gotten bad reviews. But if it's going to be because it's my vision. Because it's I because I put every single thing I had on the line. Everybody, we're only in the room to make a very beautiful baby. And if we become good friends as a result of that, that's fine. But we all have a responsibility. The people that you're collaborating with to do their finest, best work. And you have to do your finest, best work. And it was interestingly enough, when I was at NYU, the piece that I wrote that bombed, I went, oh, this is going to be successful. And then there was this play that I wrote just for myself called The Colored Museum. And yeah, none of y 'all applauded when I said the title of the other thing, Paradise, did you? No. But that's what happened. It was the most interesting thing because I wrote one for success and I wrote one for myself. And that was the thing that succeeded. And so it was a very deeply, deeply, deeply valuable lesson. It was just like, and then eight weeks later, all those people who trashed, eight weeks, no, eight months were that it were eight weeks. Eight months later, all those people who trashed me were going, oh, where has he been? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. And I'm so glad it happened that way. I'm so glad that the first piece was treated that way so that therefore it gave me a clarity and a sense of responsibility. And doing and doing work that I believed in and and that was that I believe mattered as opposed to something that was going to lead to success. It was just one of those slap you in the face and get smart, George. So you mentioned The Colored Museum, which let's just say, though, you know, you had you're coming off the rough review. How did you even get the opportunity to do The Colored Museum, which is going to as if you don't know, it was the first big success for Mr. Wolf. So how did that opportunity even come out of that? Well, it came out of that because I was at Playwrights Horizons because the guy named Lee Richardson, who was running a theater called Crossroads, said you're at Playwrights Horizons. And I don't think there's ever been a black playwright at Playwrights Horizons. Do you have something else that you've written? I said, well, funny you should ask. Dada, Colored Museum. And so that's how it happened. So there is there were they were both connected in a in a in a way that didn't seem so at the time, but was sort of brilliantly perfect. I want to ask you. So The Colored Museum is produced at Crossroads in 86 and then moved to the Public Theater in 87, which you'll notice the Public Theater, the great off Broadway institution, is going to come up quite a few times in this conversation. But for people who weren't around at that time or don't know or whatever, can you describe what The Colored Museum is about and what the controversy backlash that that provoked was? Because it was you you had to develop thick skin early on because it was not all fun and games in response to that one either. Well, but that was different. That was called pure unadulterated jealousy. So that was that was that was just, you know, I came from nowhere and all of a sudden I'm at the Public Theater. And Frank Rich wrote a wrote a review, a rave review, and said it's the kind of playwright who takes no prisoners. And people thought and that meant he kills people. The language kills them. And people thought that that meant I was soft. So it was just like that was just dumb cluelessness. That was very that was very easy to dismiss. And and, you know, and it was it was just jealousy. It was and that I, you know, I went, oh, my feelings are hurt. Oh, I'm over that. OK, go to hell. You know, it's just sort of like I didn't I didn't sweat about that. Well, tell us a little bit about the show, because this is your big success. First. Yeah, it was first. Well, it's it's interesting when I was at NYU. In the dramatic writing program, there are about three or four people writing plays about old black tap dancers, and they didn't happen to be old black or tap dancers. And so and I was just I was just I just thought about it. And I said, so somebody has figured out, has made a decision or dynamics have been created so that people have decided what black is. And I'm going, I'm black, I'm black my entire life. And I view it as this ever changing, complicated, insane, brilliant, amazing thing. So it was an effort to shatter, shatter any preconceived notions that I thought were going to stand in the way of what I wanted to create. So I wrote this play, which was eight exhibits set inside a museum. So I wanted to shatter all the perception, any perceptions that were in my head. So it's to liberate me to go in any direction that I wanted it to. And that's what happened. And it became this and it became this very successful show. It played, I think, for I think for 10 months at the Public Theater. Then it went to the Royal Court in London. Then it toured all around. And now it's it's high schools do it now and stuff, which is great. So it's in. And then as a result of it, then I started getting interesting from that. I went from, you know, being completely flat broke to then I met the kids of studios. I got Mike Nichols wanted me to write a movie for him. Robert Altman wanted me to write movies. So all of a sudden, you know, these job opportunities happened. But it wasn't for many years that you actually went into film. In the meantime, you were kind of seizing this interest in the theater, this opportunity now in theater. There was a person who is legendary by the name of Joseph Papp, who founded and ran the public, who took a great interest in you and, you know, brought you in there. And and we can say, you know, in addition to producing the colored museum, right. Named you one of three resident directors there offered to have a producing entity within the public for you. This was a big champion to have. He then passes away in 1991. He gets succeeded by a lady who was there for only 18 months. And then in August 1993, this institution of the sort of first thing that comes to mind when you think, at least for me, off Broadway comes looking for a new director. How did you become aware that there was interest in you for that position? And was it was that job, which you then spoiler alert, got and held for the next 12 years? Was it what you thought it would be? Nothing is ever what you think is going to be. But that's the point of the journey. It was actually it was I was I directed a Broadway show called Jealous Last Jab. And then I was then offered Angels in America. And and then I was in the middle of directing a seven hour play. And then they called up my lawyer and said, we want to talk to George about running the public theater. And I went, well, I'm kind of busy right now. Can they come back after? And they said no. And so they wanted to make a decision. So when I was in rehearsal, it was announced that I was running the public theater. It was I loved the thing which I loved. I loved, loved about running the public theater was giving artists money, giving artists money and spaces where they could go do work. It was that, you know, because I after after Jelly, I went, oh, this is hard. Surviving Broadway and dealing with all of these all of the dynamics and the money and the audiences and all of that stuff. This is really, really hard. And you have to be really, really tough. And so I knew all these artists who were really gifted, incredibly gifted people, but maybe weren't as tough. Can we can I just mention a few? Because these are shows that were given a spotlight by you in those years, which, in fact, several of them were just revived in the last couple of years. So decades later, people are, you know, coming back to them. But let's note, Twilight, Los Angeles, 1992. This was a dear, dear, very Smith and important show there. That was 1994. We had Top Dog Underdog, Suzan -Laurie Parks wins the Pulitzer for that 19 excuse me, 2002. Take me out again. Just revive. So these are the kinds of people who were talking about where you can. And this the public was not particularly known for its being inclusive prior to your tenure. Well, I'd say it was I think probably yes. I think it's also a place that gave us, you know, for colored girls and it's also a place that gave us for short eyes. So I'm so I would I wouldn't totally agree with that. And also these were very smart artists and these were tough artists. But there were, you know, it's just you people when you're beginning, you need a place to play, which means you need a place to fail so that you can get smarter. Like I had with Playwrights Horizons, you need you need to to do the work and not feel the pressure of it being the biggest hit in the world because you're growing and you're learning and you're getting smarter and you're getting tougher and you're learning more savvy. Just like the things that I allowed on the first production that was done, I didn't allow on the second one. And so you get, you know, so you're growing, you're growing all these muscles. It's not just your talent muscles. It's your your ability to defend yourself and to protect your work and to go, I disagree with that. And, you know, I remember one time there was a writer who was doing a play and a couple of things got really wonky at rehearsals. And I said, well, why didn't you speak up? He said, well, I was just scared that I was actually doing a play at the public theater and somebody was going to discover I didn't know what the hell I was doing and throw me out. And it's that fear you have to get. You have to realize that fear and doubt and other stuff, all that stuff is a part of growing and you have to have permission to grow. And so that's that's what I took on very much so, which is creating a space that was there. I wanted the I wanted the audiences and the artists there. I wanted it to look like the subway at rush hour in New York. I wanted to have all kinds of people there. So that was the thing that I loved after a while. It became very, very clear to me that as much as I was creating spaces for other artists, it was very challenging to be one. And while being in charge. Well, let's go back to, again, what you were doing when you got that opportunity to go there, because this was the beginning. While you're creating these opportunities for people off Broadway, you were making your first inroads on Broadway. As you mentioned, Jelly's Last Jam, 1992, you co -wrote and directed this about Jelly Roll Morton and the birth of jazz. Your first Broadway show musical with Gregory Hines and small role the first time you're working with Savion Glover. And this gets 11 Tony nominations, wins three and sort of leads to Angels in America. Now, this is it's been looked back at. I think the New York Times looked at it as the greatest show on Broadway of the last 30 years. It's an all timer, obviously, but you first saw it as a spectator in Los Angeles. It started at the Mark Tabor Forum. There doesn't sound like there was even a thought in your head that you might ever have anything to do with this. How did that change? Well, Jelly had opened up and I worked with a producer named Margo Lion, who passed away, who was a very dear friend of mine. And everybody, you know, and there were some changes that were going to be made from the Tabor to when it moved to Broadway. And she brought my name up and Tony Kushner and someone called me up and said, Tony Kushner wants to come and talk to you. I said, OK. And he came over and he talked and I had never read the play. I had only seen it. So I talked to him about it and just gave him my observations.

Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his seed because The Blob was supposed to eat him. But he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Metaxas! Hey there, folks. In case you were not aware, Albin Sadar has written a book and the title is Obvious. No, really, it's obvious. Albin, could you back me up on this? The title is Obvious. Yeah, I'm holding a copy of the book right here, and it says Obvious, so it must be Obvious. Obviously, the title is literally Obvious. Yeah. If you read the book, if you see the cover of the book, the title is Obvious. Who's on first? Literally, who? His name is who? Okay, so in the book, every chapter is super short, and you say these things that are Obvious, but that need to be restated. By the way, you've got blurbs from everybody. You have a forward by the great author, Eric Metaxas. I don't know how you got him. I don't even know. Is he still living? I always confuse him with James Michener. I'm sorry. But anyway, on the back of the book, you have a quote from George Orwell, and it says, We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act. So this book is filled with truth. Every chapter is the statement of some obvious truth, which needs restating. So what which one should we focus on? How about the one the title? What is it? Who made you boss? Yeah. Who died? Who died and made you boss. And by the way, that George Orwell quote, he says, It's obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. I couldn't find any in my sphere of influence, so I just wrote it myself. So there you go. I hear you. I hear you. But the chapter. Yeah, I did want to focus on is is the one called Who Died and Made You Boss. I got to explain that actually the title is supposed to be in quotes, but it's not. The editor left it out, but it's in quote. It would be in quotes is because when we were children in the playground, if you're playing a game, a tag or something, then suddenly somebody changed the rules so that they could win the game. Somebody in our group would always say, Who died and made you boss? And of course, people. Yeah. Yeah. Who did? But we're living in a world nowadays that people say you can't call that woman a woman. She's could be a this or that or they and and and we have to stand there and say, wait a minute, who died and made you boss? Who are you? Who comes up with these things? Why do we have to listen to you? I'm going to listen to, you know, the almighty, because I believe in him. And he said male, female. He didn't say they, them, theirs, whoever. So who died and made you boss? I explain all that and talk about some fun stuff with some fun cartoons. Some of this stuff. What I find funny about it is it is like it's stunningly obvious. And yet we don't see it. I mean, the idea that we would go along when somebody says you can't say this, you can't say that's good. And we go, OK, or oh, oh, yeah, yeah. Simply saying, excuse me, no, no, you don't get to decide five minutes ago that there are 37 genders. I don't know who you think you are, but you don't get to decide that this simple little pushback of that, of stating the obvious that you don't you don't have authority over me. I answer to God and sorry, but I don't I don't need to listen to you. That's a simple truth, but we need to restate it. And obviously you restate it in the book titled Obvious. What do you want to say more about that? Well, I want to mention other things that that are obvious. What I begin with the chapters called Basically God Exists. And I talk about how to me it's obvious that God exists. I get one of my favorite little examples is in there and I end with the stolen election because to me that was so obvious. I'm sitting there saying, doesn't anybody else see this? What I love is that I got a I got a meme in here or a graphic in here from the Babylon Bee. They gave me permission to use it. And the title is it's one of their articles says White House announces all conspiracy theories are true, except for the one about the Biden stealing the 2020 election. And I thought, say, great. They nailed it because I had a couple I had a cartoon that said basically the same thing. But then when I saw it in the Babylon Bee, I said, I think they're going to say it better than I do. Now, I have a bunch of little cartoon characters in there and a lot of the artwork is my own. I must admit. And if you think the cartoon is of me, it's actually not. It's of Simon de Hundert, who is my alter ego that I write with at American Thinker sometimes because I've written an American thing. This stream looks a lot like you, Alvin. I'm just I'm just here to I'm just being honest. I'm just stating the obvious that Simon de Hundert, because there are these cute little cartoons that you have done in here. And it looks like it could be you. I'm just saying it could be. I'm not saying it is. Look, I'm not going to go out on a limb. I'm not going to swear in a Bible or take a polygraph. I'm just saying that's my opinion. It could be you. Yeah. Or not. Too much. Yes. Too much hair. I don't want to offend anybody. And only four fingers. There's a lot of funny stuff in the book. For example, there's a little cartoon here. I want to make sure I read this one because this is I like this one particularly. But it's a little cute, cute. It's it's it's your little drawing of the guy who could be you. But the quote says if Hitler were alive today with the left, call him Trump 2 .0. That's very clever and loaded, loaded with gems like that. It's also loaded with a lot of serious stuff. Oh, oh, my goodness. Yeah. One of my favorite things and one of my favorite chapters is and this is like a little parable. I tell is, is I draw a picture of a guy stealing a television set and the little parables about the stolen TV. A guy comes home. He goes into his living room. Somebody stolen his TV. So he runs next door to his neighbor and he says, hey, did you see anything? Somebody stole my TV. But while he's running over to his neighbor's house, he looks through his neighbor's window and he sees his TV on his neighbor's wall. So he grabs the beat cop. There's a policeman coming down the street. He says to the policeman, look, we have to go in this. My neighbor stole my TV. And the policeman knocks on the door. Did you steal his TV? And the guy says, no, I didn't steal his TV. And I said, policeman, let's go in and look. I'll show it to you. It's right there on the wall. The guy says, no, I'm not going to let you in here because I'm telling you right now, I did not steal that guy's TV. And the policeman looks at the other guy who accused the neighbor and he says to him like, well, that's good enough for me. If he says he didn't do it, then he didn't do it. So when the left tells you they didn't steal the 2020 election, that should be good enough for all of us. They didn't spend four years looking into Trump. You and I know, I mean, this is a horrible thing when you know something is true and people say, oh, no, no, no, no, it's not true. Or even worse when they say, well, you can't even talk about that. When you tell me I can't talk about something, that's when I get mad because patriots have died. Patriots have died so that we could be free and we could speak our minds in this country. You don't even have to be right. So it's one thing to say, oh, you're wrong. It's nothing to say, oh, you can't talk about that. We need to be just to speak the truth, to state the obvious, which you do in every chapter of this book is to be doing spiritual warfare. This is how we fight back by stating the obvious. And the fact that the election was stolen, not only is that true, but it should make everyone in America furious because what could be more despicable than people stealing an election from the American people, not from Donald Trump, from the American people? And so you have the guts in this book to talk about that. It does the crazy thing out. And again, this is the whole point of the book is like, you don't need to be some kind of a genius to figure out that it was stolen like it is obvious. That's why the title of the book is obvious, because everything you talk about is obvious. You're not making some arcane argument that maybe no, you know, for quacks like a duck. I'm sorry, but it's probably a duck. Yeah, yeah, exactly. That example after the book had come out, I said, oh, I wish I would have used the example of the duck, you know, walks like a duck, waddles like a duck, has feathers like the duck, goes to the bathroom like the duck, hangs out with other ducks. It's most likely a duck. Okay. And when the election was stolen, it was the New York Times that had to declare Biden the winner after like three days of a how come all this stuff coming in. Okay. I came up with probably that day. I came up with a dozen things that said this proves it. It was stolen. Yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, the book is obvious. The title of the book is obvious by Albin Saydar. Get a copy. Obvious by Albin Saydar. For 10 years, Patriot Mobile has been America's only Christian conservative wireless provider.

Press Photos of Hamas Terror Raise Ethical Questions
"Was it coordinated with Hamas? Did the respectable wire services which publish their photos approve of their presence inside enemy territory, together with the terrorist infiltrators? Did the photojournalists who freelance for other media like CNN? CNN's always there on the wrong side. And the New York Times, always there on the wrong side. Did they notify these outlets? Judging from the pictures of breaching, kidnapping and storming of Israeli kibbutz, it seems like the has border been breached not only physically but also journalistically. Four names appear on these photo credits from the Israel Gaza border area on October 7th. You ready MSNBC? The Daily Beast? Huffington Post? Mediaite? Hassan Yossef Mossad, Ali Mamand and Hatim Ali. Eslaya, a freelancer who also works for CNN, crossed into Israel, took photos of a burning Israeli tank, then captured infiltrators entering the kibbutz kafar on October 7th. Honest reporting has obtained screenshots of Eslaya's now -removed tweets on X, in which he documented himself standing in front of the Israeli tank. He didn't wear a press vest or a helmet, and the Arabic caption of his tweet read, Live from inside Gaza Strip settlements. Shortly after the publication of this article, we were alerted to footage of Hassan Elisha next to the Israeli tank. In addition, a photo has surfaced for showing him with Hamas leader and mastermind of October 7 massacre, Yahya Yabba Dabba Doo, Senwar. In this footage, they have it all there, Elisha, after he crossed into Israel and took photos of a burning tank. He then captured infiltrators and in the area. Hassan, also who also works for the New York Times, he was there as well, just in time to set foot in Israeli territory and take more tank pictures. Ali Mahmoud and Hatem Ali were positioned to get photos of the horrific abductions of Israelis in Gaza. Mahmoud captured the pickup truck the carrying body of German -Israeli Shani Lauk and Ali got several shots of abductees being kidnapped into the strip. Interestingly, the names of photographers, the which appear on other sources, have been removed from some of the photos on AP's database. You know the media is so corrupt. Perhaps someone at the agency realized posed it serious questions regarding their journalistic ethics. So the serious question is this. You went in

What did he say? Look on this program we know who Ali Velshi is and Mehdi Hassan and they're Israel haters. It may well be worse. We do have an audio after all. So why is media coming to their defense? And why are they character hearing John Podhortz who's been the publisher commentary well thinker -known American Jewish can't really say Ali Velshi and Mehdi Hassan are well -known thinkers. They're attack dogs. Podhortz who in recent weeks flashed out blah blah blah. After Velshi reported that the Hamas run Palestinian Ministry of Health says 10 ,022 Palestinians have been killed and 1 .5 million displaced from their home since October 7th Podhortz responded the Hamas one Ali Velshi uses data from us and tries to make himself clean by calling it Hamas run isn't that true why don't you tell us the numbers John shot back Velshi or would you like to just continue to live in your fantasy world where Palestinians get killed and no one counts or cares why does nobody counter care that doesn't mean you take numbers from a genocidal terrorist regime and use their numbers Velshi and that's his point you don't have the numbers nobody has the numbers so the default position isn't to use a terrorist organization now is it is it media I you see folks we are watching MSNBC and CNN we are watching the New York Times in the Washington Post we are watching all of these Israel hating platforms including now he auto repair costs are up nearly twenty percent from last year that's four times the rate of inflation so when you enroll in a car protection plan through car shield you can look forward to the following car shield offers protection plans starting as low as $100 a month with flexible month -to -month coverage no long -term contracts and options to fit everybody's budget they have repair coverage for up to five thousand parts and you have
David M. Litman: MSNBC's Velshi Invents Facts to Bash Israel
"Preferred narrative this is MSNBC during the segment he claimed the map of the Palestinian Authority sometimes described as Swiss cheese has been carved up by Israel over the past century while the Palestinian Authority did not exist until 1994 a mere 28 years ago or now 29 nine years ago so the reference to the past century is erroneous furthermore the PA was created under the Oslo Accords a mutual agreement between the state of Israel and the Palestinian Organization Liberation is under the same agreements that the current map of the PA's levels various of autonomy was agreed to via negotiations to claim that Israel carved up the territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority is false it's a lie the map and territorial changes that entailed an Israeli transfer of forty percent of Judea and Samaria to Palestinian Authority control for the most part under so -called area B status were drawn and agreed to in negotiations between the two parties and implemented indeed dalshey himself acknowledged that the demarcation of the borders in this way is entirely legitimately stated it's not illegitimate to change borders as long as it's done through negotiations well it was you idiot he he went on to claim that Israeli settlers live on quote illegally occupied unquote and I quote forcibly occupying another territory is illegal even if one is the territory occupied is not considered illegal indeed occupation is provided for an international the fourth Geneva Convention camera has had error this corrected on numerous occasions by outlets like CNBC the New York Times and Bloomberg the claim that is really settlers live on Palestinian land is also incorrect under the Oslo
A highlight from Wyre: Another crypto payment processor involved in fraud
"Welcome back, everyone. I am Cas Pianci. I'm joined, as usual, by my partner in crime. We've already recorded an episode today, so we're just going to jump right into it. We're going to talk about a company called Wire. Wire spelled W -Y -R -E, weird company, wound down in June of this past year. But yeah, I want Bennett to kind of walk us through this. He wanted to record an episode about this. And I think it is, once you delve into the weeds of it a bit, it's pretty fascinating. Wire is a cryptocurrency payment processor, one of the most common targets of our eye around this channel. And it was, like many cryptocurrency payment processors, seeming to do things a little unusually. And part of this story, the beginning of this story in my mind, involves Ryan Breslow, who I've made a couple videos about on this channel, but we've never done a full episode on him because, frankly, he's not that important. Ryan Breslow has a couple of different companies. One was called Eco. Eco was a company that said it could earn its users yield, and it claimed to do this by lending to people like Goldman Sachs and Fidelity, but was actually lending to people like Wire and BlockFi. And so that's how Eco was making its yield for its customers. That was a Ryan Breslow company, but so was Bolt, the one -click payments company that at one point was valued at like $11 billion or something crazy before a New York Times investigation revealed that they had misrepresented what they were able to do to people in order to get them to sign and then misrepresented the nature of those relationships in order to get other people to sign. Before Bolt was exposed for that, they put in a $1 .5 billion offer for Wire, making it at the time one of the most valuable cryptocurrency acquisitions of all time. What makes this even stranger is that this acquisition was announced in April of 2022. One month before that, in March of 2022, Ryan's other company, Eco, had notified users that they were moving off of Wire and on to Prime Trust. So one company moves off in March, April they announce they're going to buy the company, and even more interesting, Eco didn't actually get all their funds moved off until the end of May. Shortly after that, in September, it's announced that the deal's not going to happen. Bolt backs away, and a couple months after that, very end of the year, December beginning of January, Wire announces they're going to be scaling back operations and laying people off after this deal blew up. And that's like the first phase of Wire, right? It's a cryptocurrency payment processor doing what cryptocurrency payment processors do, making risky loans, throwing funds around into DeFi protocols, announcing acquisitions that never actually happen. It's a classic crypto payment processor. So when I go to Wire, their website, which is still up, it says, Wire is winding down and it talks about what they did and how they're ending. And they basically, it seems like they tried to do this in a way that allowed people to get their funds off of the payment processor in time. I don't know if you know anything more about that than I do. Funny enough, I'm like, Bolt is still around though. And this is Ryan, that's still Ryan Breslow's company, right? We didn't even get into all of Ryan Breslow's fuck ups, right? Like he had the movement Dow that he gave away to like a known fraudster that was separate from like his movement not for profit that ended up like embroiled in some other scandal. We've got some articles we'll link in the description and there's some videos we've made on this channel about it, but like Ryan Breslow's whole like group of companies is a fucking mess. I'm looking through his career and just some of his stuff in general. First of all, this guy is 29 years old. He's younger than me. And 29 is very, very young crypto pharmaceutical startup, the movement, a dance nonprofit. I am confused about this guy's entire life. Surprise went to Stanford. Gosh, I'm all over the place here just because I'm like, wow, so eco didn't work out. That's gone, right? Eco still has a website and they're still tweeting. And they still have a token that's down, oh, down 70%. Remember, there's two tokens, right? There's eco and there's ecoX. What does ecoX do? Well, that's the deflationary supply token serving as the governance asset that's used to secure applications on the eco network, of course. It's deflationary. Why is it down 88 %? It's not deflationary enough? I feel like this is so similar to our discussion about Terra Luna, man. We're not going after Ryan Breslow's stupidity today. They're all interconnected, wire, bolt, eco, love, whatever the fuck these are. And they're all doing poorly. They're all stupid. How much money was going through wire? There's some answers to that I'll get to, not as much as you might be thinking. At the very beginning of 2022, wire announces they're scaling back operations and doing these layoffs. And then on January 7th, wire announces that they're going to be changing withdrawals, limiting how much you can withdraw. You can only withdraw up to 90 % plus other daily limits. Five days later, though, things get better when wire announces that they have received financing from a strategic partner that will allow them to continue their normal course of operations. And this is always good news when crypto companies get strategic financing from undisclosed partners. That takes us into the Binance US era of wire. Binance US, in the beginning of 2022, was using Prime Trust as their principal payment processor. They started switching off of Prime Trust, and by May 25th, 2023, had much of their funds stored with wire.

I have delved into the question of how good a weekend or a good any day one could have when the world is so filled with evil and one has to try despair as a sin, as I have noted on a number of occasions based on my Bible commentary. Hi, everybody. Good to be with you. This is late breaking. I normally don't have the show driven by news as it breaks, but this is an important—many of them are important, but this is, I believe, worthy of immediate attention. This is from Newsweek. Conservative social media personality Steven Crowder teased the release of a manifesto allegedly written by an accused school shooter in Nashville, Tennessee, where six victims died earlier this year. Boy, I'll tell you, Newsweek is really—this sentence is so gingerly phrased. Let's see. The manifesto is allegedly written by an accused shooter, not the shooter. Six million victims died, not were murdered. In a video posted Monday, that's today, to YouTube, Crowder said the manifesto was leaked and shared screenshots of portions of the document which was believed to be written by Audrey Hale, 28, whom authorities identified as the shooter. They also said Hale, who died at the scene, once attended the school. By the way, that is interesting that they say allegedly. You say allegedly when somebody is about to stand trial, but if the person was shot at the scene, you don't say allegedly. What was Audrey Hale doing there? Checking out school curricula? No, it's a little too ginger. Anyway, I will be reading the manifesto here on this show. I wish that I wouldn't have to, Crowder said in the video. In a post to X, formerly Twitter, Crowder shared other images of the manifesto, including one part that said, I hope I have a high death count. Newsweek has been unable to independently verify that Metro Nashville Police Department spokesperson told Newsweek that the police are unable to confirm the manifesto, but said they are actively looking into the matter. Here's a question for Nashville police. Why didn't you release it immediately? Some authorities had it, and my suspicion is because the manifesto reveals, as was suspected, a left -winger and it was a trans person. So the left sort of has the view, padona misa gosh, there are no enemies on the left. And whereas if the manifesto were some racist, anti -black screed, we would have known about it immediately. So three children and three adults at Nashville's Covenant School were murdered. She later died from gunshot wounds. Shortly after the shooting occurred, this is again from this Newsweek article, police said that they had recovered a manifesto believed to have been written by hell. So why, why was it never released? The ongoing investigation into the March 27 murders of six persons inside the Covenant School continues to show, from all information currently available, that killer Audrey Hale acted totally alone. That's not the question. Well, I'll report to you. There is a report somewhere, but since I haven't seen it, I can't, I won't report it yet, about what it revealed. And it seems to me that if the report is correct, it was a big anti -white kid screed. All right. So we live in an age of moral confusion, as I have warned all of my life. And the charge against Israel that it commits genocide against the Palestinians which a charge that has been made for decades, this is not new to the current war against Hamas, is another gigantic lie of the left. But the truth is not a left -wing value. So I have data here from Statista, which has no political bias that I know of. You agree with me? I don't know. Okay, fine. Statista Infographic Newsletter. Statista puts out statistics. So this is from 2020. Growth of Palestine. Let's see now. The need for peace continues to grow in urgency as Palestine's population is growing at a larger rate than Israel. Jewish and Arab populations are on a collision course of parity in the coming decades, with Arab Israelis also growing faster than Jewish Israelis and gaining more voting power. Then there's a chart, Growth of Palestine. It begins in 1960, and the green is Palestine, the blue is Israel. They have gone from 1 .1 million to 5 .1 million in 2020. So there is a growth of essentially five times growth quintupled since 1960. The Jewish population has quadrupled, has gone up four times the Arab population of the area five times. Have you ever heard of a genocide where the people being genocided have a population growth of 5x? The lie is so grandiose, but you have to know something. The people screaming it believe it, especially those who are Palestinian or from other Arab or Muslim countries. They believe their lies. Read David Price Jones' book, The Closed Circle. You'll see that he's an Arab expert. He lived an exaggeration and lies as being very frequently in the public sphere conflated. Anyway, we're catching up. The truth is that a left wing value in the left wing dominates academia and the media. So much for the charge of genocide. The only attempt at genocide of the Palestinians and their Muslim supporters around the world, they wish to commit genocide against the Jews of Israel, perhaps all Jews in the world, but certainly Jews of Israel. That is the only genocide that can be alleged in the Middle East. Well, there was one, but I don't know. Yeah, I guess you'd call it the Middle East, of course. Do you remember the Yazidis, how they were wiped out by ISIS? Well, virtually, yeah. There was a real, let's put, an ethnic cleansing, let's put it that way. Genocide. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free is a call for genocide. It is a call for the eradication of the Jewish state. There are 22 Arab states, from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean, but there's no room for a Jewish state the size of New Jersey. People just always need to remember that. Should there be a 24th Arab state, one that never existed in the history of the world? I hear some Palestinian speakers actually saying, we are the descendants of the Canaanites. Did you know that? You can meet a living Canaanite. Can you meet a parasite and a Jebusite? He said he was a Jebusite? Is Arafat said he was a Jebusite? I didn't know the man had a sense of humor. And this is what your kids are learning at college. We return. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals.

And the New York Times reports he urged his former aides to, quote, take in the whole truth, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. Would he have done that in World War II? Strike a balance between the killings? Look at how many German civilians we killed. Look at how many Japanese civilians we killed. Would he have said that? I don't know, but to me it would be the same thing. The moral difference between the allies and the Nazis and the allies and the Japanese was no greater than the moral difference between Israel and Hamas. We live in the age of moral relativism. It's infected almost the entire intellectual class. I saw it when I was at graduate school at Columbia University, and professors generally equated the U .S. and the Soviet Union. It was not a battle, the Cold War in their view, between freedom and tyranny, or between, if you will, light and dark, with all the darkness that exists, obviously, in everyone and in every country. There was an unbridgeable gulf between light and dark between the United States and the Soviet Union, but they would not agree to that. It was a superpower battle or a battle of two economic systems, communism and capitalism, as if they are morally equivalent, let alone just equally effective. Well, there are people who build their society with communism and slaughter tens of millions of their people while doing it, and there's another free society which is infinitely wealthier. I remember that when I wanted to get soda from a soda machine when I was there during the Cold War, and I as know that I speak Russian, and so the machine would say, госированая вода, gas gaseous water, meaning like sparkling water. The machines were quite common in Moscow, I don't know about the rest of the Soviet Union, and there was a plastic cup like you would have in a house there, and everyone who got the sparkling water used that cup. Isn't that fascinating? One cup. I drank from it, you know me, I mean, you know, they reported internationally that I, for fork drops in a restaurant, I will actually use it. I am not, shall we say, a hypochondriac, struck but it me as an example, they didn't have the money to have a paper cup used every time and thrown away. Incidentally, I'll tell you what else moved me. I will acknowledge this, because truth is the number one obligation. Nobody stole the cup. I found that fascinating. Here's this former aide to take in the whole truth, unquote. This is Barack Obama this weekend, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. What Hamas did was horrific and there's no justification for it, Mr. Obama said, and what is also true is that the occupation and what's happening to Palestinians is unbearable. Really, what is happening to Palestinians that is unbearable? I'm not talking about the current war in Gaza, which they brought upon themselves just like the Germans did and the Japanese did. Unbearable? Really? Has he or anybody he talked to gone to visit the West Bank? Is life on the West Bank unbearable? Didn't strike me as that way, been there a number of times. All I remember was a lot of cranes building new buildings. And they're obviously having a lot of kids. Generally, having a lot of kids in an unbearable situation tend not to go hand in hand. What is true is that there are people right now who are dying, who have nothing to do with what Hamas did. There were Germans who died who had nothing to do with what Hitler did. That's correct and you blame Hitler for their deaths. You blame Hamas for the death of Palestinians in Gaza. All their money is used to buy rockets and dig tunnels everywhere, including right under hospitals. If there is such a thing as evil, Hamas is it. But after all, if you raise a generation to believe that America is evil, then evil loses its meaning, doesn't it? That is what has happened. Okay. There are no comments. It's interesting they don't have comments on me on this particular story. Dennis Ross is a major figure in Middle Eastern diplomacy. For 35 years, this former U .S. envoy to the Middle East, who has generally been critical of Israel, not anti -Israel, but critical of Israel. For 35 years, I've devoted my professional life to U .S. peacemaking policy and conflict resolution planning. Nothing has preoccupied me like finding a peaceful and lasting solution between Israel and the Palestinians. In the past, I might have favored a ceasefire with Hamas during a conflict with Israel, but today it is clear to me that peace is not going to be possible now or in the future as long as Hamas remains intact and in control of Gaza.
A highlight from Weekly News Block: NYT Finally Gets Inflation? Cost of Living Crushing Gen Z, Trillion-Dollar Budget Deficits, Vanguard Won't Join Spot Bitcoin ETF Race, SBF Guilty of All Charges
"Welcome to the CoinStories news block. I'm Natalie Brunell and in the span of just 10 minutes, roughly the same time it takes to mine a new Bitcoin block, I'll provide you with concise, insightful updates on Bitcoin and the global financial landscape so you're well informed on the week's top stories. Everything you need to know in one place, in one block. Let's go. This week, something caught my eye in a New York Times article. The Times seems to finally recognize what we all know and feel. Prices are still stubbornly high, even though they say inflation is down. The article highlighted how prices skyrocketed since President Biden took office. The price of bacon is up 21%, the price of coffee beans up 33%, and the price of gasoline is up a whopping 73%. Here's a key line in the piece. It reads, quote, Yes, inflation has fallen sharply this year, but most prices have not fallen. Only the rate of increase has. Now this seems simple, but it's critical. A lot of people out there think inflation coming down means prices will return to where they used to be, but that's just not the case. This concept of how the inflation rate has declined but not prices themselves is also crucial to understanding why inflation is often referred to as a hidden tax. So when central bankers say that inflation has come down, what they really mean to say is the rate at which we are devaluing your money is slower than before. It's atypical to see this kind of straight talk coming from the New York Times. You know, they usually publish pieces by folks like Paul Krugman, who just last month gaslit the world yet again by declaring the war on inflation is over. That is, as long as you exclude used cars, food, energy, and shelter. You know, basically everything people need. CPI today is still eating away at our paychecks at a rate of nearly 4 % instead of more than 8 % at this time last year. But either way, our paychecks are losing value, making it harder to afford the things we need, and squeezing our ability to save. This is likely one reason why younger generations are not even thinking about long -term savings anymore. A recent survey from Intuit found that Gen Z is all about soft saving. Soft saving means preferring to spend and live in the moment instead of prioritizing saving for the future. So what was the main reason cited for the new soft saving trend? You guessed it. Inflation. More than half of the respondents said that the high cost of living is a barrier to their long -term financial success, and two -thirds of them said they wouldn't have enough for retirement anyways, so what's the point? Why save? Now this survey shed some light on that underlying sense of hopelessness that younger generations feel today when it comes to their finances. They no longer feel like they can save for their futures, and instead of planning for important milestones like buying a home, starting a family, or retirement, they are instead deciding to spend on experiences, anything to make them feel a little bit better about their lives. I actually talked about this in my most recent episode with Carla and Walker, aka The Crypto Couple. This is precisely why having a money that can't be debased, like Bitcoin, is so important. It can bring hope for a generation that increasingly feels like the rising cost of living is making their financial goals unreachable. In other words, Bitcoin can fix this. As Greg Foss often says, Bitcoin is for the kids. Hopefully these younger generations do get some relief soon, but unfortunately it doesn't seem likely given that the government can't stop spending. A recent Treasury report says the government is looking to borrow another $1 .6 trillion over the next six months alone. They're issuing more debt to spend more money that we don't have. Interesting enough, the Treasury Borrowing and Advisory Committee published a report that recognized some of the risks of continuing to borrow trillions of dollars. It basically lays out the dreaded debt spiral that James Lavish explained in detail in an interview I did with him earlier this year. So to summarize it, the Treasury is flooding the bond market with new supply, which is making interest rates on the bonds rise. The higher the rates, the more we have to pay back, and that's a big problem given the huge mountain of debt that we have. If interest rates keep rising, then that's more money the government has to spend to service the debt, which increases the amount of money they have to borrow even more, which could lead to more inflation, which leads to higher rates, and on and on it goes. Now for now, it seems to be business as usual, but we know it's not sustainable over the long term. To hear the Treasury recognizing these risks shows they are well aware of the debt spiral problem. And the solution? Well, they can either choose to stop spending and risk a financial crisis given the amount of debt in the system, or they can choose to try to print their way out of it. You know I've got my bets on which option they'll go with. If the government continues to print more money, then investors will need to find assets that are scarce and resistant to inflation, like Bitcoin, and a spot ETF Bitcoin approval would make it more accessible than ever before. Many firms like BlackRock, Fidelity, ARK Invest, they're vying to become the first spot Bitcoin ETF to hit the US market, and they all currently are awaiting SEC approval. But one firm that isn't throwing its hat in the ring is Vanguard, the second largest asset management firm in the country. Vanguard CEO Tim Buckley made headlines over the weekend when he said Vanguard won't join the Bitcoin ETF race, saying quote, Vanguard focuses on asset classes with an intrinsic value and capable to generate cash flows like equities and bonds. With all due respect, Mr. Buckley, Bitcoin's intrinsic value is linked to the properties that make it a superior form of money. It's scarcity, portability, divisibility. Yes, it doesn't offer a yield, because just like gold, if someone holds it, it doesn't have any counter party risk. If Vanguard is only in the business of cash flowing assets, then it makes perfect sense for why they wouldn't be interested in offering a spot Bitcoin ETF. All eyes now are on the January 10th deadline when the SEC needs to make a decision on ARK Invest's ETF application. But a lot of people are speculating that the real delay has to do with the legal issues surrounding Grayscale and its parent company DCG. Maybe we'll go into that another week. But there are definitely some out there wondering if BlackRock plans to buy Grayscale and seed its eventual ETF with the more than 600 ,000 Bitcoins in the trust. To be continued. Switching gears now to the courtroom. The verdict is in on Sam Bankman -Fried, and as you probably know by now, he was found guilty on all seven counts. The so -called trial of the century has come to a close. It marks the end of the stunning collapse of FTX, which saw billions of dollars stolen from millions of victims in one of the largest financial frauds in history. For Bitcoiners, the verdict represents a moment of cleansing and the industry maturing as it moves forward on more stable ground. Michael Saylor explained this idea well in a recent Bloomberg interview. I think it's an important milestone in the growth and the maturation of the industry. The crypto industry has been plagued by inexperienced entrepreneurs like Sam, unreliable custodians like FTX, incompetent creditors, a dozen went bankrupt in the last year or two, unscrupulous promoters. And their failure is a necessary rite of passage for an industry that's going to lead to a new, more stable, more scalable ecosystem that will be based on Bitcoin. Public companies like Block, MicroStrategy, Marathon, a dozen Bitcoin miners that are public, institutional money managers like Fidelity and BlackRock, and regulated banks when they eventually become custodians. The offshore crypto exchanges, the stablecoins, the crypto tokens, the DeFi projects, they're going to shrink, fade into background and decouple from mainstream and institutional digital assets marketplace that will be based on Bitcoin. The FTX case highlighted the difference between Bitcoin and crypto. This fraud was only able to grow to the size that it did because SPF could print FTT tokens out of thin air. No one can do that with Bitcoin because no one can control the network or manipulate it. That's what makes it so different. And that's why criminals like SPF don't like it so much. Miller Value Partners portfolio manager Bill Miller IV echoed this sentiment in another interview. Bitcoin is very different from crypto. So crypto was convicted yesterday. Bitcoin is still going very, very strong. The network's as strong as it's ever been. There's more users than there's ever been. So we continue to see very positive trends in Bitcoin, not so much in crypto. Bill isn't wrong either. Bitcoin's hash rate just reached a new all -time high last Saturday. The network's security has never been stronger. As crypto has faltered, Bitcoin has strengthened. For too long, Bitcoin's reputation has been tarnished by scams and frauds littered throughout the broader cryptocurrency industry. US Attorney Damian Williams, the prosecutor in the FTX case, delivered a strong message to the crypto space after the conviction. He said, quote, this case is also a warning to every fraudster who thinks they're untouchable, that their crimes are too complex for us to catch, that they are too powerful to prosecute, or that they are clever enough to talk their way out of it if caught. Those folks should think again and cut it out. And if they don't, I promise we'll have enough handcuffs for all of them. SPF faces a maximum sentence of 115 years behind bars and his sentencing date is set for March 28th. After this verdict, perhaps scammers might think twice before launching their own token or offshore exchange. Who knows? Maybe more of them will choose to work on Bitcoin instead. A girl can dream.

"Moms, just a mom, just a dad, random relatives, the school system, married mom and dad has been the basis of child raising for literally thousands of years. And is in fact the safest place because mom provides comfort and dad provides security, and that is the basic bargain. But the fact that this has become controversial. Dangerous and un American. See, this is the thing. People who are hardcore social leftists, they do believe a ton American because their version of America is a libertine America, in which transgression of social norms is the freedom that is promised to you. The freedom for you is not the freedom of owning property in your own name, for example, and then dispensing what that property is you see fit. It's not the freedom to raise your family within the boundaries of social institutions like the family. True freedom is blowing up all those institutions. Most American thing is destroying the family. It is the most American thing. Now it just happens to cross rooms with the most extreme forms of Marxism, but sure, it's the most American thing. And so, you know, I really do appreciate when people show you who they are. So thanks to representative Erin healey on that one. Also, people showing who they are. So Chelsea handler can not let this thing go. So we've talked about Chelsea handler the last couple of days because again, she started it. No one was talking about Chelsea handler until Chelsea handler decided that she was going to basically go online and put out a video talking about how wonderful it was not to have kids and how happy she is not to have kids. And some of us look to that and be like, you don't look that happy. And the life you're describing doesn't sound that happy and trying to model that behavior for young women and pretend that this is the height of human happiness is a lie. And then Chelsea handler responded to that and then some of us responded to that. So Chelsea handler is neglecting the first rule of holes, which is to stop digging. When you say that the height of human happiness is eating an edible at 6 a.m., going back to sleep and masturbating, and then getting up and drinking a lot of wine and doing Xanax. sound like happiness to me. But we've noted that, some of us have noted this. Tucker noted this. I've noted this. Matt Walsh, a lot of us on the right have noted that Chelsea handler doesn't seem like a particular model of female happiness. She's very angry about that. But she's happy. She's not angry. She's not upset. She's happy. But let her tell you how happy she is. Hold a day in the life of a childless woman. The point is to make you feel good about being an aging deeply unlikeable woman who never had kids. Narcissism, it makes you happy. Feminists like Chelsea handler, they've been lied to by their society forever, that you could be a girl boss and you can do anything a man can do. Which everyone who's ever seen a woman back up a vehicle knows that's not true. Your womb resembles a dried up tumbleweed blowing down an old western town and your Valentine's Day date for the tenth year in a row is a ten year old copy of magic Mike and a half full bottle of Xanax and you're trying to pretend like you're happy, but you're not happy. This lady is a miserable. I mean, she is miserable. And it's written all over her face. How miserable she is? Hey everyone, I woke up this morning. Well, more like this afternoon. And notice that there was an emergency meeting of the receding hairline society to discuss a comedy video, I filmed about not wanting kids. Wow. Why would I even need my own children when I get to hear these cry babies all the time? I mean, I can't believe that bearded version of Tucker Carlson thinks I would take a half a bottle of Xanax, I take way more than that. You silly goose. Look, I don't want it to be whether or not I'm a girl boss, although I did just look at my bank account and think, that's pretty girl boss. And then I thought about the ten different people. Plus, ten plus different people. I've been able to put through college. And then I remembered my 6 New York Times bestselling books. Or was it 5? Oh, no, no, it was sex. And then I remember my recent stand up special that was just released on Netflix called revolution, and I thought, yeah, you are a girl boss. You guys seemed so triggered by me. I mean, my goodness, Tucker. I think it is time for you to ask yourself a serious question. Are you really upset about how much freedom I have? Or are you upset that you haven't been able to take it away from me yet? Oh, and quick shout out to Ben Shapiro. Thank you for helping my cause of not having children. Who needs the birth control pill when your voice is 100% effective. I don't need a husband band because I'm in a relationship with myself. And at least in my relationship, someone can get a woman to come. And by all means, Tucker, if you want to respond to my triggers, I will be happy to keep holding out videos as long as you want. I think we both know that you are hate masturbating to me. And I'm down with that. Wow. Try and convince yourself that she's happy. I'm not even going to bother responding to Chelsea handler's specific commentary on my voice or sexual aptitude. Because what I will just note, the final results here. Happily married for nearly 15 years, my wife is currently pregnant with our fourth child. She's a single 47 year old woman who drowns her sorrows

"A possible a possible cause could be the fact that an enormous number of young adults took the vaccines. Particularly in Moderna vaccine, which has now been paused in Sweden Denmark Finland and Iceland for use in young people. But that's not the kind of stuff that CBS News is going to report. Again, it cuts against the narrative. The conspiracy of silence is the way things get done. And so when The New York Times breaks the silence, The New York Times has to obviously be clubbed about the ears for all of them. Okay, meanwhile, Nikki Haley launched her official campaign yesterday. She put out a campaign launch video a couple of days ago, but she officially launched her campaign with a big speech yesterday. It was kind of fascinating for a couple of reasons. There's some really interesting things about Nikki Haley's candidacy. First, Nikki Haley is, in fact, running on a partially anti woke agenda. She is saying, for example, America is not a racist country, which used to be, I thought, sort of the road idea in the United States until Joe Biden declared that America as a systemically racist country. But if this is going to be the battle, I think it's a battle that Republicans can win. Here was Nikki Haley yesterday. We must stop socialism before it's too late. It's weakening America from within. But there's something else that's eating away at our national core. On Biden and Harris watch, a self loathing has swept our country. It's in the classroom. The board room in the back rooms of government. Every day we're told America is flawed. Rotten and full of hate. Joe and Kamala even say America's racist. Nothing could be further from the truth. The American people know better. My immigrant parents know better. And take it from me. The first minority female governor in history, America is not a racist country. Now naturally, this is prompting some people to claim that she is running quote unquote as a minority. That is not the reason why Nikki Haley is running Nikhil is running because Nikki Haley, like many politicians would like to be president of the United States. And her main pitch is actually the opposite of the affirmative action pitch. It is, I'm nothing special because I'm a minority because I live in the United States of America where anyone can rise to the top, which happens to be true. Now, the thing that made a lot of headlines yesterday was her tacit slap at both Joe Biden and Donald Trump on the issue of age. And this is smart play by Nikki Haley, it is, because I think most Americans look at the age of Joe Biden and they say, we do not need a president who is 80 years of age right now. And by the way, we do not need a president in Donald Trump who is currently 76 years of age. And who, after the election of 2024, would presumably be closer to 78 years of age, meaning that he would be in office in his, in his early 80s, 82, 83 years old. So here's Nikki Haley, saying what I think a lot of people think, which is maybe we ought to have some mental competency tests for the elderly before we make them president of the United States. When America is distracted, the world is less safe. And today our enemies think that the American era has passed. They're wrong. America is not past our prime. It's just that our politicians are passed there. In the America I see the permanent politician will finally retire. We'll have term limits

"Our journalism strives to explore interrogate and reflect the experiences ideas and debates in society to help readers understand them. Our reporting did exactly that and we're proud of it. So good for good for The New York Times for defending itself. And also, you guys, you had it coming. You had it coming. You guys decided to feed the slack idiots. All the people in your slack channels are going to call Hannah Jones and your channels who thought they were going to control editorial coverage from the inside. And now you have a bunch of liberals who are very upset with you for not being left wing enough, and they are trying to control you from the outside. By the way, there is irony in some of the people who are signatories to this letter. You have Lena Dunham, who is criticizing The New York Times for being soft on LGBTQ+ minus divided by issues.

You have Chelsea Manning as in the trans trader who took government secrets and then blew them out at WikiLeaks. Who's a signatory to this letter? Take that really seriously. And also you have Alison Roman, who criticized Marie Kondo and Chrissy Teigen and talks about her own cancellation and now she's interested in canceling the writers at The New York Times. Well done, everybody. See, here's the thing. Democracy dies in darkness. And journalism dies in censorship. And The New York Times is now coming under the gun or a movement that it has helped to create in the first place. They didn't think ahead. But you need to think ahead. And this is one reason you need to be using stamps dot com. Simple fact of the matter is that you're going to be mailing a lot of stuff this year. And you don't want to schlep all that stuff over to the post office. That is a waste of time. It is a waste of money. Post-op. This is great. You don't want to wait in the line.

"Medical experts. Dear New York Times, stop questioning trans people's rights to exist and access to medical care right to exist. So this is such a euphemism for nonsense. Trans people exist in the sense that there are people who believe there are members of the opposite sex. This does not mean they are actually members of the opposite sex. And access to medical care is a hell of a euphemism for it. Chop off breast and penises and construct fake vaginal canals. And really, that is access to medical care. The science is subtle. I mean, if you guys, if you interest groups shout it, obviously it must be true. Sarah Kate Ellis, who's the president and CEO of Glaad, has an entire threat on this, accompanying the letter again. It is a concerted campaign to try to defenestrate The New York Times is coverage of this issue. You got to silence people. It's important. People need to not know that there is controversy surrounding this issue so we can continue to pretend that action to protect minors, particularly, or action to protect science itself from this pseudoscientific garbage. That action is out of bounds. So here's what Sarah Kate Ellis writes. The New York Times had a long reputation as a leader in the world of media. The example they are setting for coverage of trans people is downright shameful. From the front page to the opinion page readers are too often getting an inaccurate view of trans people and issues important to them. With poor reporting that elevates an equate, LGBTQ components, harmful opinions, and concerns to actual facts that have widespread scientific and medical consensus. The times inaccurate coverage has been cited in legal documents, used to justify discrimination and targeting of trans people. This is chilling. It should give every reader an every leader of The New York Times pause. The LGBTQ community, especially the trans community, is under attack, it's time for the times to stop this relentless misinformation disguised as disingenuous just asking questions reporting. And ridiculous and harmful opinion pieces that do not represent the reality of trans, people's experience. The times must earn back the LGBTQ communities, trust. They have to earn it bad guys. Start. And this is the demand. Start by listening, hiring, and reporting accurately and inclusively on trans people by accurately and inclusively, they mean only the stuff we want you to report. Which, by the way, is the way that glad operates. You do realize that in Hollywood, it is common practice for every major show to be pre screened for Glaad, so clad can determine whether at foster's anti gay stereotypes. This is why glad, literally, glad put out a report after the Super Bowl saying there weren't enough gay characters in the commercials for the Super Bowl. This is the kind of stuff glad does on a daily basis. Anything less. And an intentional and meaningful effort to reach out to and listen to transgender experts is unconscionable, unacceptable, and violation of the public trust. So as I say, I am perfectly happy to see The New York Times take it on the chin. I am pleased, however, that The New York Times is actually fighting back. Charlie statlander, the director of external communications, put out a statement quote we received the open letter delivered by glad and welcome their feedback. We understand how glad in the co signers of the letter CR coverage. At the same time, we recognize glads advocacy mission, and the times his journalistic mission are different.

"Over the course of 8 months. Just to get this absolutely clear, by the way, 15,000 words, over 8 months is not that many words. That's the truth. Because an average lengthy article in The New York Times might be 3000 words. You're talking about maybe 5 articles, four or 5 articles over the course of 8 months. The newspapers, editorial guidelines, demand that reporters quote preserve a professional detachment free of any whiff of bias. When cultivating their sources, remaining quote sensitive, that personal relationships with news sources can erode into favoritism. In fact, our appearance. Yet, the times has in recent years treated gender diversity with an eerily familiar mix of pseudoscience and euphemistic charged language. While publishing reporting on trans children, it omits relevant information about its sources, so what exactly did The New York Times do wrong? I love this. They're angry. All these contributors who are, in fact, friendly with the people at The New York Times. They are contributors. And many of them are personal friends with the people who work at The New York Times. I feel like God, you guys are supposed to be absolutely objective and bias free without a whiff of favoritism. That's why we as your friends are writing you and telling you exactly what you should and should not print. All the sensors coming from The New York Times and so delicious. For example, say these open letter writers, Emily bazelon's article, the battle over gender therapy, uncritically used the term patient zero to refer to a trans child seeking gender affirming care, a phrase that vilifies transness as a disease to be feared. No, that's idiotic. Patient zero just means the first patient. Basilone quoted multiple expert sources who have since expressed regret over their works misrepresentation. Well, then they shouldn't have represented their work that way to The New York Times. Another source. Grace linsky Smith was identified as an individual person, speaking about a personal choice to detransition, rather than president of the GCC and an activist organization that pushes junk science and partners with explicitly anti trans hate groups. Well, but was great. Smith, a person who de transitioned? Because that would be the relevant category in which to place them. They're talking about their personal experience in that particular case. It doesn't matter. They're going to pretend that there has been a journalistic and committed. There has not been a journalistic in committed here. The only journalistic sin by The New York Times is that they are years late on this thing. The journalistic in that these people are upset about is that The New York Times did a journalism. They oops and did a journalism. And now the alphabet people are very, very angry at them and they are looking to cancel The New York Times. And particular writers, they want those writers punished. That's really what this is about. Again, you can't trust. So many people out there who have your interest not at heart who actually kind of despise you. And this is just one reason why when you look at your wireless corporation when you look at the people who provide your phone coverage, you should think about who exactly you are spending money on.

"LGBTQ+ minus divided by sign half face emoji cat emoji activist launch an assault on The New York Times. For its shockingly objective coverage of the transgender, Nikki Haley officially launches her 2024 campaign with the speech that slaps both Joe Biden and Donald Trump and the congressional budget office reports that America's national debt is headed for disaster. I'm Ben Shapiro, this is the Ben Shapiro show. Well, folks, karma comes for everyone. And The New York Times was slapped by karma yesterday when a bunch of LGBTQ+ minus divided by sign happy face emoji till that's a little squiggly thing that goes over to the Spanish letters, hashtag dollar sign, pound sign, cat emoji. When that group of people decided, along with some of their allies, that they were going to write a letter to The New York Times decrying their coverage of the trans agenda. Now, The New York Times in the last 6 months has decided to finally cover the fact that there is something controversial about generally mutilating miners. There might be something controversial about giving kids untested sterilizing drugs because they have a mental disorder that suggests that they are a member of a sex to which they are not in fact a member. The New York Times has been covering things like the fact that they're a bunch of people who get these quote unquote treatments and then want to detransition because it turns out that this was a giant mistake. They've been covering the fact that there's been a huge scandal at the tavistock gender clinic over in the UK where it turns out that quote unquote experts in this field were essentially recommending hormone treatments to small children who had autism, for example. They've been covering the fact that in Europe, places like Sweden and Finland, they've actually been banning a lot of this sort of quote unquote gender affirming healthcare for miners, specifically because it is highly damaging. So The New York Times is actually doing the unsayable. They have actually been covering the news. Now, this is something the left is not used to. And you got to sympathize with the left because for literally decades, all The New York Times did was basically cover the left wing agenda and do so in glowing fashion. If there was any news, they cut against the left wing agenda, The New York Times, which is not covered. It just would not be covered by The New York Times. Journalism was foreign to The New York Times. And so when they did an occasional act of journalism, you know, a couple of years too late and by a couple, I mean like a decade too late. Then, of course, the LGBTQ+ divided by sign, activists, they got very, very upset. And you can understand why, because again, they had it set in their brains that The New York Times was one of us, they were on our side. After all, The New York Times, and this was the same exact group of people who decided that it was necessary to oust an op-ed editor for having greenlit and op-ed from Tom cotton in the middle of the Black Lives Matter riots, pointing out that riots might need to be quelled using the National Guard. And you recall that this op editor literally lost his job over this. You'll recall this is the same New York Times that went after one of its top science writers for the great sin of suggesting that there might be context in which using the N word to elucidate a point might be necessary. And they literally fired the guy over this. This is the exact same New York Times that canceled Barry Weiss because Barry Weiss had the temerity to not agree with generalized agenda items of The New York Times, despite the fact that Barry is a center left person. And Barry is not a conservative on the vast majority of issues. But she happens to be pro Israel, she happens to be anti the transgender radical agenda. And this was enough to make The New York Times absolutely insane. And so Barry Weiss had to go. And they allowed the slack channel to be filled with people at The New York Times abusing Barry Weiss day in and day out. This is the same exact New York Times. That spent years defending the falsehood, the outright falsehoods of Nicole Hanna Jones, not just defending promoting with millions of dollars in press. Nicole Hannah Jones, who is still given a role at The New York Times, despite the fact that I'm not sure she's written anything for The New York Times in the past several years, all she does is make crappy Hulu documentaries that continue to lie about American history. So again, the left felt that The New York Times was its preserve. And now the karma is coming for The New York Times. The New York Times has spent years trying to cancel everybody on the right. New York Times had a front page article just a few years ago and it featured pictures of people like me and Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin and it suggested that we were mainstreaming hate on the Internet because what we were doing was we were acting as a sort of conduit to the alt right. The same New York Times that has spent reams of paper and barrels of ink going after people or even remotely on the right in order to get their advertisers to cancel them. And in order to destroy their livelihoods, now The New York Times being hit by the same people that it thought were fellow travelers. Oh, it's so sad. It's so sad. So again, here's how one down yesterday. So there was an open letter that was released by 200 plus New York Times contributors. What makes you a New York time contributor, you once wrote an op-ed for The New York Times, which means by that definition, I am technically a New York Times contributor because I did write an obit for Rush Limbaugh in the pages of The New York Times. And then there was a whole list of people who supported it and that the list of supporters is almost endless because it's basically just a bunch of randos online who signed their petition. So what exactly did the open letter say? It says dear Philip. They are writing to Philip Corbett the associate managing editor for standards of The New York Times. Dear Phillip, we write to you as a collective of New York Times contributors with serious concerns about editorial bias in the newspapers reporting on transgender non binary and gender nonconforming people. Wait, wait, you're suggesting The New York Times has editorial bias, guys? Wow. The irony, the irony is too rich. I don't know if I can handle this. Plenty of reporters at the times cover trans issues fairly, right? These contributors. Their work is eclipse, however, by what one journalist has calculated as over 15,000 words of front page times coverage, debating the propriety of medical care for trans children, published in the last 8 months alone. Wow, 15,000 words of front page times coverage

"Yeah but but i don't hear them covering women being told that they should kill themselves that they're going to be raped to death or any of that stuff. I never heard the new york times. Talk about the statistics. We have on this show about. How often female politicians are threatened with death and violence. They aren't even covering the mass wave of threats against school boards bright. So i'm really really hate my new york times that my blood pressure's going up a little bit and this isn't a new thing. I mean this has been happening for very long time. I mean even. I mean looking at the clintons. It seemed like the new york times had a personal vendetta against the clintons and hillary in particular for like thirty years. What about our emails. The emails are just as bad as everything. Trumped it no. They're not they're not and this is part of that whole both side ism like well. Here's one negative thing but it's like a ten percent of what the hundred and fifty percent is happening over here on the right. But they treat them the same. And that isn't unbiased. That's as them putting their fingers on the scale agreed And this is not new permits of american democracy. Yes yes and i'm going to say worldwide democracy. I'm gonna talk a little bit historically about the new york times then. We can roll into some of their coverage of the january six insurrectionists. They don't call them insurrectionists by the way they call them rioters the same way. They called the protesters and seattle rioters. They're all the same lately. Different things yes so anyway in nineteen twenty two Because i'm weird. This way. And i have a subscription for about another twelve hours new york times described. Hitler in november was earlier a little bit earlier in nineteen twenty. He was twenty two years a great orator but the app anti-semitism wasn't that bad was a quote in the britain in the article. And and this is what they modern day. New york times journalist wrote about that article. They their readers. The first glimpse of hitler and profile that got a lot of things right in his description of his ability to work a crowd into a fever pitch then and they're ready to stage a coup which did predict the unsuccessful. Beer hall push which was a year later but the also are off. And i'm like you're saying you got this all right and then we got one little thing wrong. that the anti-semitism wasn't as genuine and violent as it sounded and the later coverage of the beer hall putsch which was a year later. They quoted their original article again. It says you can't expect the masses to fully understand and appreciate the real finer aims. You must feed the masses with crew. Morsels like violent anti-semitism to get them to join your path. Now i swear to god that article you could take all the hitler's and put it in trump's and you'd get the same same stuff so when they covered the beer hall putsch in december of nineteen. Twenty-three this was the title of that article. Beer hall scene gave comic touch to hitler's quote coup and.

"These things but anyway Human bias that. Why couldn't they just call it. Racism it just. Why use two words when you can use one. Isn't that one of the key tenants of journalism right. and they have a history of sexist misogynistic bias too. I know a lot of people heard about their story. Called the bad art friend friend and apart from the whole story one of the examples of bias is that the new york times piece says that door lynn filed a sexual harassment claim with the previous employer and then missed legal. Meetings and the obvious goal was to make her appear needy and flaky. 'cause isn't that what girls are right. But she actually filed a claim because the organization fired her after reporting harassment and the reason the meetings were missed was because they were working on arbitration and she was not allowed to go to the meetings during arbitration. And you would think a journalist would make that distinction instead of being a mouthpiece for a company right. I don't like how they've been covering the whole christian cinema in the bathroom thing. And i actually unfiled pre behara as feminist utopia. 'cause he said if you think this is okay. I want you to follow me now. And i'm like done you know. Have this privileged little fucker up there saying well. You shouldn't follow her into a bathroom when she's been legit hiding from everybody for weeks and not just weeks. When was the last time she had townhall meeting. It's been years and another letter came out showing that a lot of her. Biggest donors are gop organizations and individuals. So she should be held accountable. And it was frankly dreamers. Who wanted to answer that are tear side of what's happening to their lives and they didn't follow we're into the stall. They stood outside and they weren't calling her names. They weren't telling you to stick a near fifteen up her vagina. Like i've been told may they weren't threatening her with death which happens to other female politicians. She simply being held accountable right and they gave that the same outrageous when people went up to joe mansions which he calls a houseboat. But it looks pretty damn big to me. And they're apparently nothin' kayaks yell at them from the water. how dare we confront us authorities. We have to find them where they are which is usually some resort getting money from big pharma company or a goldman sachs. There's somebody else. And it's like the colin kaepernick situation. He got yelled at and banished from the nfl for kneeling. He shouldn't do it that way. So there protests. And you shouldn't do it that way either. And you shouldn't do it this way and you shouldn't do it that way. You shouldn't confront senator cinema as she's walking through an airport. What are you supposed to do. You're not supposed to confront white. Isn't the new york times. Just come out and say that never confront anybody meet how. It's okay when they do it. It's okay when they do it. There was far less outrage about that. Trump entourage trying to run a biden bus off the road and texas texas. I think texas probably and it was literally trying to force them off the highway with their. You know chuckle bubba trucks with the fuck biden trump. twenty twenty flags But the new york times there was no pearl clutching for that. Heaven forbid you follow a woman into the bathroom..

"The old grey lady also known as the old grey karen in my house. So i've never really believed that the new york times was a bastion of liberal thought. I'm to open with that. It's always been status quo in my time that i've been reading at the thirty so years i've been reading it. It has never been pro progressive. It has never been anti-capitalist. It has never been anti corporate or anti-racism or anti-racism. Oh my gosh. They go way back being stupid. Not only racism but anti-semitism as well or is that racism. Do you consider antisemitism racism Okay i think you can classify that. I think a lot of black activists would take umbrage at that and i understand why but then i've also had to take umbrage with black antecedents is one who shall remain nameless in texas was talking about the white supremacists at charlottesville. They weren't chancing chanting. The blacks will not replace us. They were chanting. Jews will not replace us when someone referred i referred to them specifically as antisemitic. And and i'm like. I love you dude but step off on this one right. So it's i. It is a form of of racism. I think the new york times made a huge error and labeling racism as human bias. Isn't that a wave thing. It's like unicorns and butterflies. The context was they had an article. About how black business owners were more likely to get paycheck protection program loans from online lenders than from smaller banks so if they went online they were approved if they went in person not so much and the new york times asserted that human bias appeared to be. The main reason. Couldn't say the word. It's a new our word. There's so many human. By as i think that it should be correctly labelled as racism and they did get a little bit of pushback on it. But i don't think enough. Had you heard about that. No for no. It's interesting though. My husband's involved with them. Some machine learning things with that have been encoded with human bias. And so there's there's like a whole episode there about sexist and racist and such huge amounts of bicycle into.

"Did you choose to right right about tennis. You know to the degree that you have versus other sports. I'm what i'm fifty six. I grew up as a kid in the tennis. Boom i mean. I grew up my first memories of watching spoarer. Yeah i remember watching basketball and the nfl for sure. But i also remember watching jimmy connors in seventy four christie ever and then solo navratilova came. Those are my memories of early on and my mother was a recreational player in a passionate one so in our house that was. That was a sport on tv. Bud collins was talking away. Mom used to get mad analogies metaphors nicknames. But you know. He brought life to the game so that that was my my childhood growing up with tennis household. That's the beginning of it. And the other thing is you know. I met and fell in love with a woman from paris. France now travel after. I finished college overseas and i spent fourteen years living fulltime in france and spain. Nine still over there a lot and tennis in the american landscape. But you and i have seen in recent years has certainly lost some of its primacy and its popularity but overseas it is still in a lot of countries the number two sport or the number three sport lot of european countries in australia still has huge residents culturally. And those are places that i was going to and you could feel all that so it might not have built central in our countries of us open or wimbledon maybe but other parts of the world especially france rice. Spent a lotta time It's huge and you know it's like he has the french sports daily over there has at one time had nine tennis writers on staff and they were putting in two or three pages of tennis coverage every day in a general interest publication. So it depends on your vantage point. And i and i'm i've become through my family. My own interest in. I'm pretty global. The way i approach things so for me. Tennis fantastic global individual sport. I mean get players smaller continents. It's a it's a game. Where the surface and the the settings change from place to place and it's very international. I was drawn to it for that reason. So what's your touched on the fact that you to it in the states but you really got to appreciate his popularity overseas and i always talk about essentially when i look at you. Know guys like maltese and guys like song. If they were raised in the states they wouldn't be tennis players Right if curiosity raising the states won't be a tennis player. And so what do you think we have to do. In america to get tennis to be viewed as a number one or two sport as it is overseas right. And you know the keyshawn johnson. The calvin johnson's like those guys like man. If you pick up a tennis racket he would be the greatest ever. What do you think we can't do or have to do to sort of get tennessee..
"new york times" Discussed on The Purple Principle
"Was verboten to do that. I didn't leave the republican party. It left me. That's really a very dangerous point but were there will last question. We ask all our guests to show a bit of purple which means choosing one member of each party of particular respect for whether living or dead who might be able to help in our polarized environment. Today well one guy that i liked lot covered him. Some was john. Chafee of rhode island. The evolution of this legislation was notable. Not only for what we accomplished but for how it was done it was done in a bipartisan fashion. It shows what can and should be accomplished. When we all work together are covered in both while at the providence journal and then later in congress and i thought he was an impressive man in many respects another who comes to mind if someone who just died. Carl levin who. I didn't cover that much. But i knew a little many foresee a continuation of polarization and partisanship in the senate. And say that it's naive to suggest that the next congress might come together breakout of gridlock and accomplish great things but i know senate can do better because i've seen it happen with my own eyes. And he was also they both shared. His cleverness is a democrat. Chafee was a republican. I think they both shared this independence of spirit and a respect for the national interest and their larger obligation beyond party so jillian could sure use a few moore's and maybe a few hundred more elected officials with those larger obligations larger than twitter feeds and super pacs. That's a lot but maybe we can take the slightest bit of solace from bipartisan action. That we've seen recently. I on covert relief and then again on infrastructure at least in the senate though typically there's even less bipartisanship in an election year which is coming up frighteningly soon in twenty twenty two and so much at play the razor thin democratic majorities in both houses and a lot of state legislatures and governors seats as well. We learned from thomas edsall today that backlash can swing these elections especially when democrats pushed on those identity buttons. We also heard. He currently views the democrats as the sole rational party thus having vital responsibility for turning down the heat on our discord. If you're not familiar with thomas edsall's writing. We encourage all of you to look for his new york times column. Most every wednesday. They're deeply honest clearly written and contain great summaries of some of the most important academic research out there on the roots of polarization next week. Though we're going to step away from mainstream journalism academic research into high school and middle. School classrooms around the country. Where the teaching of civics has eroded over the past few decades. This is a topic dear to us over at my day. Job with civic genius. There are a lot of efforts underway to better educate young americans on civics not just the mechanisms of government but the importance of civic involvement of all kinds whether it's volunteering mentoring and of course voting. We'll speak with four different experts on this subject. Colonel michael moffitt or republican from new hampshire who's filed legislation to civics education in my home state. Dr laura hammock a superintendent from rural indiana whose former school district won a national contest promoting civic education and the host of civics went on one. Hand a mccarthy a nick kappa. Che the team behind this popular. Npr show and podcasts. Have done as much as anyone to promote the importance of civics the past five years with two hundred and thirty episodes and counting. Some teachers have told me why it was quickly sort of adopted into schools quickly. After the show is created like forty six episodes end was because there was an absolute dearth of nonpartisan civics material on the audio waves. So teachers could play this without fear that they'd be viewed as supporting one side or the other about these very hot button topics and issues and we still strive for that. Please join us.

The frightened parts of our personalities are amazing painful and destructive and counterproductive to everything we want and the only way to change them is to make that change non-negotiable when you encounter a frightened part of your personality for me. It's like drawing a line in the sand. I love san. Because i love beaches love hawaii. I love islands and aboriginal people on islands. Everybody on islands everybody everywhere and now that i'm thinking about it but the analogy is to be walking and find an angry for entering your head and you look at that you're angry at somebody that somebody said something or they did something you didn't want him to do or they betrayed you are and i feel it in terms of emotional awareness.

You're not going to war with the frightened parts of your personality. You'll becoming aware of them. You're challenging them. You are drawing upon your volition. Your free will and you are directing it with all of the force that you can to not acting on that impulse and maybe you can't stop the feeling in that moment you can never determine what you're going to fail in the next moment but you can decide what you're going to do about it. That is creating within power when you experience a frightened part of your personality and while you're failing it's magnetic attraction and it's magnetic and it's powerful demands and it's demanding because it's righteous.
