Make it simple today with Toku. Today's guest is Nick Day, Coindesk's managing editor for global policy and regulation. Welcome, Nick. Thanks for having me. The trial for former FTX CEO Sam Bankman -Fried starts next Tuesday, October 3rd. There's been a lot happening pre -trial. For instance, Sam has requested release from jail multiple times and repeatedly been denied, including as recently as Thursday morning. My personal thought was that it seemed like all these requests that the defense was putting in at this critical juncture right before the trial was supposed to begin was maybe not the best use of their time, but that's just my personal opinion. I'm not a lawyer. Why do you think they made this such a point of focus in the last few days? Yeah. So I'm actually coming, you know, I was in the courthouse just a few hours ago where this very issue was brought up and the, you know, defense's arguments were, well, the first time we asked it was for pre -trial release. You know, this was right after Bankman -Fried was remanded into custody in mid -August. The second time was, you know, they were asking an appeals court to overrule the judge's decision to remand him and they lost that as well. In court today, the defense said, well, you know, now we want to ask for during trial, which is why we waited until this week to make that request. And they say that they want to, you know, the circumstances are different. They're not asking for Bankman -Fried to be released from jail in the weeks leading up to trial. Now they're saying, well, you know, during the trial, we're going to have to talk to him and check with him about defense witness testimony and cross -examination and things like that. So that's why we're making this request. And the judge didn't really find that compelling. And why do you think the judge has stuck to this position of keeping Bankman -Fried in jail? So in the judge's words, there's a couple of different reasons. One being that Bankman -Fried has had ample time to look at the defense materials. You know, one of the arguments was there are something like 1300 exhibits expected over the course of the trial. And the judge asked today, you know, were these all prepared and shared with you before, I think he said September 8th, so earlier this month. And the defense, they said, yes, we've seen all of this. We've had access to all of this. Bankman -Fried was out on bail for about seven and a half months. And so the judge's argument is, well, he's had time to look at this. You know, there's no surprises here. And he said that the defense has the chance to talk with Bankman -Fried in the Metropolitan Detention Center where he's currently being housed weekends during days that there are no trials. So, you know, the trial is not every weekday. It's going to be most weekdays. And he said, you know, you have the time, you have the opportunity, you are able to talk to your client. You're not really losing a whole lot. But he added kind of a, you know, made this ruling where Bankman -Fried will even be presented to the courthouse early on trial days where there's certain witness testimony that has to be discussed and let the attorneys just talk to him before the trial begins on those days. So he's saying basically, you know, you have opportunities to talk to your client and I'm going to give you more time to do so, but I'm not going to let Bankman -Fried out of jail. So the main focus next week as the trial begins will be jury selection. Tell us what you think that process will be like. It definitely will be interesting. I think it's probably going to be very boring from just kind of an observer perspective because it's a long process and we're going to be just sitting there watching this judge ask each individual, have you heard of FTX? Have you heard of Bankman -Fried? What do you think about cryptocurrencies? But it's going to be very interesting because this is the part where we're really going to get a sense of, okay, you know, these are the 12 or so people who are going to determine whether or not Bankman -Fried spends the next, you know, 10 to 20 years of his life behind bars and so I'm expecting to see maybe as mixed selection. I think if you pluck a random group of New Yorkers off the streets, some of them may have heard of cryptocurrency. Most of them probably will not have and they're going to be tasked with deciding whether or not one of the biggest figures in crypto committed fraud on the way up and on the way down. Something that was interesting to me was the prosecution said that they expected jury selection to take the better part of a day. I've seen some legal opinions that it will take longer than that. What do you think could potentially happen there and why do you think some analysts are saying that it would take longer? Yeah, no, I've spoken to a number of lawyers as well ahead of the trial, you know, where at Coindes we're trying to do a lot of kind of preview coverage, basically saying here's how it might go down. Everyone I spoke to said it will probably take a couple days. Part of that is because this is a fairly notorious case. A lot of people will have heard about Bankman -Fried and presumably formed some kind of opinion that would, you know, disqualify them from being a juror on the trial. I'm not sure where the DOJ is getting their estimate from. It's very possible that, you know, through the questionnaires that the jury pool is sent through the, you know, the kind of the mass selection process or deselection process that the judge engages in. Maybe that streamlines a big part of it by kind of, you know, reducing or like immediately filtering out the people who are most blatantly, you know, either knowledgeable or biased or otherwise have their own preformed viewpoints about the case. And so the jury selection might just be focused on, you know, those individuals who have made it through those initial filtering processes. But that's speculation on my part. I honestly am not sure if it is a better part of the day that we could see opening statements as soon as next Wednesday, October 4th, which would be a pretty rapid start to the trial. And Coindesk did some work to try to suss out what it is that Lower Manhattan New Yorkers might say if they were randomly picked for a jury. What did you discover there? Yeah, no. So Coindesk's Dylan and Victor went to Manhattan, downtown Manhattan to the financial district, and literally just went up to people and said, hey, we're with Coindesk. Have you heard of FTX? Have you heard of Sam Bankman Fried? And a fairly large part of this group just hadn't heard about it. You know, they weren't familiar with it. They weren't comfortable talking about crypto. They weren't familiar with crypto. And of those who were, you know, I think they found a fairly even mix. There were some individuals who had heard about Bankman Fried, some individuals who had only heard about crypto, some individuals who were very knowledgeable. They actually found a, you know, a Yahoo anchor who was the most knowledgeable about it, naturally, as you know, a reporter covering the financial space. But they also found people who were looking for jobs in crypto, people who were investors in the space. By and large, it seems to, you know, a lot of the people they spoke to just weren't interested or talking, interested in talking about crypto or in, you know, being part of this, being part of crypto. So if that is a representative sample of who we'll see next week at the jury pool, it'll be interesting because we'll see a large, potentially large, jury pool of people who aren't familiar with crypto. Again, on one of the biggest, you know, bang in on one of the biggest figures in the space. Recently, the defense proposed certain questions that it would ask the jurors and the government said that they felt these were quote unquote intrusive. What were some of the questions that were proposed and what was the government's response? Yeah. So, you know, the background here is both the DOJ and the defense team filed their proposed jury questions to help filter potential jurors. The defense team in particular had a number of questions about, you know, how these potential jurors felt about things like effective altruism, about political donations, about ADHD and people who have ADHD. And the DOJ response was really, you know, they felt that some of these questions, for example, about effective altruism and about political donations seemed kind of primed to or designed to prime the potential jurors to think, oh, well, Bankman Fried was trying to do all of this in service of this effective altruism philosophy. Therefore, he was trying to raise money to donate to better the world or designed to try and prime the jury to think, okay, well, you know, political donations is fine. So these allegations about breaking the law in the way he tried to donate funds maybe is, you know, overreach or whatever. And then the intrusive part, you know, treating just kind of this question of ADHD and whether or not people were, you know, involved with individuals who had it or the DOJ just felt that these questions were really designed to try and shape how the jury would see Bankman Fried as opposed to just kind of gauge their existing biases. And so the DOJ opposed these questions. And I think we're still waiting to see for sure if there's any public response on the judge prior to jury selection on Tuesday. All right.

"Even though each of these charges, if you look at the DOJ press release says, oh, it contains a maximum sentence of 20 years or five years, whatever, it's not going to be consecutive. It'll be concurrent. So the estimate I'm getting from various attorneys that I've spoken to over the past few weeks is it'll probably be somewhere in the, you know, 10 to 20 year range. Hi everyone.

Recently, the defense did propose a number of witnesses, but the judge denied most of them. Who were these proposed witnesses and why were they denied? Yeah, so the DOJ and defense both had a number of proposed expert witnesses. The defense in particular had a number of individuals that they said could speak to everything from the terms of service that FTX operated under to the FTX software to just rebutting certain DOJ witnesses. The judge basically said he agreed with the DOJ in rejecting all of these proposed witnesses. There were seven. He did allow the defense to call for four of them later on, but they have to meet certain requirements and fill out certain disclosure forms first. A big part of the judge's reasoning was the witnesses had just not adequately explained what they wanted to testify about or what they would say, and so they didn't have or he didn't have enough information to allow them to testify, which was functionally the DOJ's argument as well. That being said, some of these proposed witnesses are intended to act as rebuttal witnesses to DOJ's witnesses. I know we're saying the word witnesses a lot, but that's what it comes down to is four of these witnesses could come back and respond to, you know, either FTX intercircle members who are testifying on behalf of the DOJ. One of the potential witnesses that the defense can call forward is someone who can speak to the actual technical software underlying the, you know, FTX program, again, in response to DOJ witnesses. The judge did completely ban, for example, a British barrister who was supposed to explain the FTX terms of service as well as someone who was supposed to speak to kind of the crypto industry at large, saying that, you know, those witnesses and that proposed testimony seemed a bit too far afield from what the case would be about and could probably do more to confuse the jury than to clarify anything. And SPF's team also wanted to block a proposed government witness that was also denied. Who was that and why did the judge deny that motion? The DOJ proposed a University of Notre Dame professor to testify about some forensic analysis he did on FTX financials. The defense objected. They said that this witness would basically just reiterate the DOJ's claims, the allegations, but the DOJ argued that he was doing his own analysis of the data he had access to. And so it wouldn't just be stating the DOJ's claim. He would be providing his own expert insight based on his own work, you know, examining the databases that he had access to. And the judge agreed with that and said that based on what he'd saw and based on what the witness disclosure had provided, the witness was likely just speaking to his own expertise and looking at actual data as a third -party expert witness might do. And so those witnesses are allowed right now. We're still waiting on the full and final witness list, but we now know that there are probably at least a dozen witnesses that we're going to hear from over the next six weeks. And who are the ones that stick out to you on that list? I think the cooperating witnesses, so the FTX inner circle, that's former Alameda Research CEO Carolyn Ellison, former FTX director for engineering Nishat Singh and Gary Wang. I forget which one of them was the director of engineering. The other one was a fellow executive, but you know, these are the three individuals I think we're going to hear from probably first, maybe. Might hear from them as soon as next week, not certainly the week after. They're the ones who were in it, right? They were involved in this. They were part of FTX. They were part of the highs. I think we're going to probably hear from them, you know, how FTX might've fallen apart. I know from court filings, we know that DOJ wants to ask Carolyn Ellison about the FTT token and allegations that Sandbank and Freed was directly involved in trying to argue for Alameda to take a large sum of it and to potentially allegedly manipulate the price. So I think that testimony is going to be really interesting just because, again, it's the firsthand account of what happened. We're also probably going to see the defense try and discredit these witnesses to the extent possible, right? Straight out of the gate saying, well, you know, you weren't threatened with jail if you didn't testify in turn against your former boss. So I imagine we're just going to hear arguments like that from the defense during cross -examination, but either way, I think this is going to, you know, those are the three witnesses I think we're looking forward to most right now. And then once we're past that kind of initial surge of FTX insiders, that's when we'll get to kind of more, I don't because I don't think that is the right word for it, but, you know, people who are looking at it from kind of the, you know, again, forensic analysis perspective, people who are going to be able to kind of dig through and say, all right, well, you know, we've looked through the smoking remains and here's what we found. And I think that will also be interesting because it'll be really a third -party perspective on, you know, here's how this thing was set up and here's where things may have gone wrong or here's where things may have fallen apart. And getting a third -party perspective on that I think is going to be really fascinating because there'll be, I assume, a bit more objective about it than, you know, people who built it and worked on it maybe could be. One other kind of motion that happened this week that was pretty interesting or development, I should say, is that the judge did allow SPF's team to ask some of the witnesses about their drug use. What do you think will be the significance of that line of questioning? I think that goes back to, you know, a witness, cooperating FTX inner circle member saying, while we were at FTX, Sam directed us to manipulate FTT, whatever, you know, just speculating what someone could say. And the defense comes back and says, well, you know, are you sure that's what he said? Were you high at the time of these conversations or were you engaged in recreational drug use during the time you were running this company? You know, if I'm a member of the jury and I hear, okay, well, everyone was partying and on drugs and doing weird stuff or, you know, potentially, you know, in an altered state of mind, that might shape how I view the, you know, the defendant, the verdict, the whole case. So the judge did say that prior to making those, you know, kind of questions, the defense has to notify the prosecution and the judge about it. So it's not going to be a case of like they'll blindside the witnesses about this, but I imagine that's going to kind of go back to this effort to try and say like, okay, you know, Bankman Fried wasn't doing something wrong on his own or intentionally, it's just that things fell apart, but they were well -intentioned. The defense is going to attempt to, I think, pin some of the blame on legal advice that Bankman Fried received. How effective do you think that argument will be at trial? That's a really hard question to answer. I think the problem that the defense has is there's really no denying that FTX fell apart and it fell apart in like a very dramatic fashion, right? The day it filed for bankruptcy that evening, what, a couple hundred million dollars or tens of millions of dollars worth of crypto was stolen, I think. I forgot the exact amount, but you know, it was a pretty dramatic way to cap off what was already a chaotic week. So the problem the defense has is they can't say, well, FTX is fine. And so they're leaning on this advice of counsel defense. Their argument is going to be, you know, Bankman Fried was well -intentioned. He told his lawyers everything he wanted to do, and he did everything they told him to do. And so because it all fell apart, you can't really pin that on Bankman Fried. You have to look at the advice he was given and the information he was acting on. And so I guess part of the problem that the defense might have here is did they share or did Bankman Fried share everything he wanted to do with his attorneys? Did the attorneys have all the information and did he do exactly everything the way his attorneys told him to? And I don't know, you know, I'm sure we'll see answers to those questions over the next, you know, six weeks or so, but that seems to be kind of how that might play out. And it's going to be an interesting argument for sure. But again, I think it goes down to the central problem of FTX for sure collapsed and how you respond to that. One other issue is that the judge did rule that the prosecution could mention SPF's political donations. And there are charges specifically related to that that will be tried in a separate trial next year. So why were those allowed in this case? So this is where we get into what has become one of the new fun parts of being a court reporter in this case is Bahamas extradition treaties. So the original indictment that Bankman Fried was charged with back in December of 2022 did include campaign finance violations as one of the charges. But because it did not appear in the charging document that the Bahamas Police Department had, there's a Bahamas National Police, something like that, Bankman Fried's defense team successfully argued that they could not bring that charge right now because he had agreed to be extradited on the first seven charges, which were wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit securities and bodies fraud, et cetera. So what it seems like is going to happen is the prosecution is going to try and fold all of that into all the political donation stuff into the other charges, into the wire fraud charges, and say, well, you know, we have the evidence, we have the allegations, and here's what you have to look at what that means for the next trial. And, you know, you're absolutely correct. There is another trial currently tentatively scheduled for either March or April 2024, next spring, either way, where we will be going through all of this again. But a lot of that is dependent on the Bahamas. And yeah, we could probably talk about that for another hour if you wanted to. All right. Well, we'll leave that for another episode. But one thing I did want to ask about is earlier in this interview, you said that his sentence was likely to be in the range of 10 to 20 years. And obviously, you know, there's many charges and we don't know which ones he'll be found guilty of and which ones he won't. But how are you coming up with that estimate? So yeah, I should definitely be more precise there. So I personally am not a lawyer or an expert in this. I have spoken to a number of lawyers about this. And what they said is, if you have a defendant who is found guilty, so these assumption here is that he is convicted on at least one of these charges. But if he's found guilty on even several of the charges, because all of the conduct is similar, because it's all kind of identical conduct at the core, a judge, when making a sentencing determination, will basically fold all the charges into each other, right? All the conduct. And so even though each of these charges, if you look at the DOJ, press release says, oh, it contains a maximum sentence of 20 years or five years, whatever. It's not going to be consecutive. It'll be concurrent. So the estimate I'm getting from various attorneys that I've spoken to over the past few weeks is probably be somewhere in the, you know, 10 to 20 year range. Some estimates came down as low as five years, some as many as 36 years. But they all seem to base that on just kind of the allegations, the charges themselves combined with the amount of money allegedly lost, which is more than 50 million, combined with the severity and all of that. Yeah. And so 50 million is sort of like some thresholds because I think it goes in levels of severity. Yeah. And the higher the number goes, the longer the sentence. However, that's the largest threshold, obviously. Yeah. I literally looked up the federal sentencing guidelines, which by the way, is a very confusing document. I did not understand it. So I asked someone else to explain it to me, but yeah, it's the different thresholds that you mentioned. And it starts with the, I think the thousands range and then just kind of escalates up and 50 million seems to have been the uppermost that they had. So it's 50 million plus. I think the allegation is something like 10 billion loss from FTX. So 10 billions, a hair more than 50 million. Just as many multiples. So that will probably be kind of the way they calculate it, probably. And again, this is dependent on if he's convicted on one or more charges and all sorts of stuff. Yeah. Okay. Well, we will have to see how all that plays out. Thank you so much for explaining all of this on Unchained. Thanks for having me again. Always great to talk to you. Yes. Same here.

Fresh update on "new yorkers" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek
"Hall and then they'll go to the restaurant across the street right so what we do is bring this stimulus to New York City which we're always happy to do and we have a lot of fun with doing it and then we have a big event which is Stand Up for Heroes which kind of opens up the festival this year on November 6th so we have Jimmy Carr there, Tracy Morgan, Rita Wilson will be singing, Shane Gillis, Ronny Chang, Jon Stewart who's a constant there and also Josh Groban and John Mellencamp. That's so cool. How do you think about when you put it together 17 years and running? Talk to us about like how it's evolved. Oh it's 19 years. The festival is 19 years and 17 years for Stand Up for Heroes but it's 19 years next year we're having a big big blowout the 20th year in New York City. Wow. You know we start the day after we finish here we start for next year actually we're trying to secure venues ready for next year you know our big shows at Madison Square Garden so we do that constantly. Can you know it's it's we don't often because we have a global audience here on the program. Do we really? Yeah we do. I had no idea Yeah that's some comedy for you. Don't hold it kidding. Looking into the control room to see if they can save me. Stop! They're laughing in there. But we do and we you know we have a national audience as well. So why are we talking about something here in New York? Well because a lot of people from all over the world and all over the country come to this. Talk a little bit about who this attracts and and sort of where New York is right now in the comedy scene. Because you know there there are people are who saying you know okay LA is you know a classic place for comedy. You've got Joe Rogan and Austin doing his thing. You know trying to make Austin comedy happen. Where do you stand on all this? You know you can never negate New York. Okay. You can't take the New Yorker as a good New Yorker. No it's here it's it's here here's where it starts. This is where you get the creative juices. This is where you get the ideas. You know the whole thing with LA was that you know which is not so quite in fashion right now is to go out there to get your sitcom. That's that's not really happening anymore. Now it's like... Wasn't happening over the last five months without the writers strike I can tell you that. I guess they're back. That's a really good point because you did see a lot of comics for a long time right get a series and then just move to television. But now the touring that goes on when you have a great special that's on TV you take that and you go on the road and that's your millions of dollars that these people you know comedians are making on the road when you're selling out Beacon Theatres, Carnegie Hall when you're selling out The Garden. This is like this is big bucks. So it's a big big business for a lot of people that really have you know made it and are able to tour around the country. Can we talk about the business of comedy and I think about you know last December your iconic club right you did not renew your lease it's spot in Times Square. How hard was that? You know I wanted to stay and then there was a part of me which did not to want stay because of the way and I'm out I don't want to put down Times Square because I went there thirty years ago to build it up and I was part of that the renovation of Times Square and full the of renewal Times Square. So I'm not going to put it down but things were changing there the city was changing I felt that after COVID the whole seascape there was changing and I I said said let me step back I own the brand I want to take the brand I'm extending it through the festival and we then have other ideas where we're going with that. Okay give us some of those other ideas. Yeah well you know we're taking the Caroline's brand and you know kind of producing content and putting it out there and specials and everything else that we do with comedy on a grander scale. I mean it really was the end of an era for you not to renew your lease there. Well yeah yeah I was there 30 years in Times Square. So I mean Times Square changed a lot in 30 years and it changed a lot just in a few years because of the pandemic. Talk to us a little bit about the you know what happened and the decision -making process and the external factors there too. Okay so obviously I went to my landlord and I go listen we need some relief here. You know things have changed a lot so can you? He goes no Actually we really want to raise the rent. So I said oh but you know there's so many repairs that have to be done. I'm here for 30 years you know air conditioning electrical work right just things needed to be upgraded and he said well that's just what the deal is and I tried very hard to stay there and then he just said well I'm out of here now. I'm done. I have other things to Did do. you look for other physical spaces? No but I have to tell you that we had so much press when we closed that so many real estate developers called me and said I have spaces for you and I will even help you build it out.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/12/23
"This was an easy one. 1975 Elton John singing about the city of liberty, the city of freedom, the city of brotherly love. The light was shining on our buddy Mike Gallagher last night. City of a lot of traffic, oh boy. Did you just make it by the skittier teeth? Oh boy, oh boy. I said I can't wait to talk to my buddy Mark if I make it. And Mr. Uber driver, please go faster, please go faster. Memo to self, don't stay in Center City when you've got to go out to the radio station which is in, I don't know, Lafayette Hill or wherever the heck we are. A lot of traffic, a lot of construction and what a joyful night last night. A hundred, I mean it was like over 700 people at the Fuge which you would love. It's a NASA, you know, Center Fuge. It's a reference to the Center Fuge exhibit and stuff like that, yes. And they do like a venue. They've got an event venue there. This is the second or third time I've been out there and Lorenzo and the team here at 990 The Answer in Philadelphia do a fantastic job. Phil Boyce, our boss, the big boss, was the moderator. He does a fantastic job. And of course on stage, Dennis Prager, Pastor Robert Jeffress. Yeah, man. And he is so good. Man, Dr. Jeffress is so good when it comes to defining the battle of good and evil that we're witnessing. He also made a Trump reference. I've heard him say this now many times, we ain't considering a pastor for the competition. And he has been very, very loyal to President Trump, much to the chagrin of some within the evangelical community. And so we dealt with all of that faith and freedom and liberty and tyranny. The great Chris DeGaulle, the local host here who is so strong. Man, oh man. And boy, does he get a hero's welcome last night. This community loves him. So we just had a blast. It was a great night. I told the story about Mike Lindell, who I'm speaking to today, about the way they've targeted him. And much of it started with Mike after he said at the Rose Garden, hey, crack open your Bible and turn to God. They didn't like that. So it was just a great evening of conversation. Of course, lots of concern about Joe Biden, lots of debate and discussion about Joe Biden's dis, his snub, his refusal for the first time in either New York or, you know, Shanksville or DC. What a disgraceful. And, you know, they know what they're doing, Mark. They know what they're doing. Okay. What are they doing? Because I know my first answer. And for yesterday, all of yesterday, if there's anything I really tried to do, and I know you do too, it's to be as fair as possible, as accommodating as possible. So if I am going to come down hard on somebody, it's because I've internationally, you know, doddering around in Vietnam, tough to get back in time for 9 -11. So maybe that's bad planning. Tough to get back. I know. I know. It's the president. He's got Air Force One and get wherever he wants to get. Don't give me that crap. Believe you me, the test did not succeed because even under the harshest light of goodwill and grace and latitude, there is no excuse. He was with troops in Alaska. Anytime you're with troops, it's good. But 9 -11 is about three places, New York number one, not to rank them, obviously New York and obviously the Pentagon or Shanksville. You've got to be in one of those places and to fail to do so is conspicuous by its absence. So my answer to give it back to you is the reason they didn't do it is because they knew that it would have been as big an embarrassment as it was in Alaska where he made up crap again. And David said, Drucker well, Biden has been embellishing for a long time. Yeah, but that's when he knew what he was doing. Now I think Joe actually does believe that he was at ground zero the next day looking into the gaping maw of hell or whatever he said there among the smoke and the debris. He wasn't there. He was on the floor of the Senate. He is mentally unhinged. His White House knew it and that's why they knew they could not have him at any of the important 9 -11 sites. Well, two things. You know, first of all, I think there's a lot of wisdom to the argument that if he was at one of the 9 -11 events, the reception he would get inevitably would embarrass him. Have you seen - Reception? Reception? I'm talking about booing. Nobody's going to boo him on 9 -11. Yes, they are. Yes, they are. Don't underestimate the anger and rage the that people have towards this guy. I mean, look, already he's gotten - I mean, I saw it with my own eyes when, you know, I've seen the loving reception that Trump got when he was being arrested from people in the inner city and people lining the streets cheering him. Look at the reception. And you've seen Biden get booed at various events that he's attended. New Yorkers in particular are aggravated and anger. Listen, ask a 9 -11 family what they think of Biden shaking the hand of the Saudi potentate or whatever he is. You know? And you don't think Saudi Arabia was complicit in 9 -11? I mean, this is - And so, yeah, I think you're right, the reception. And number two, this man's a liar. This man will just flat out - And I want to see how they're going to spin this whopper that he was standing, looking through the gaping jaws of hell the day after on the - as George Bush was. George Bush stood on the pile. George Bush had that bullhorn and George Bush said, I hear you. And soon the people who took down these buildings are going to hear you. Biden's trying to, you know, take away Bush's real life experience. Stolen presidential valor. Exactly. Somebody else was there and he wasn't. And you're lying about it? You're saying I was there? I mean, I know people who do this. Listen, I don't want to mention names, but there are people, frankly, and they're kind of pitiful. They just want to live on 9 -11 infamy and they want to bang that drum and they want to puff up their chest and say, look at me, look at me, look at me. The true heroes are the - And there are people who are trying to rescue people or find people and they've had post 9 -11 sickness and illness and death.

I know in advance, once you get to know Andrew, it's not that big of a deal. But on the page, he's impressive, but you know. I am honestly so thrilled to see so many of you here and so thrilled to be rebooting this thing that we call Socrates in the City. Some of you were here in May. How many of you were here in May when we had Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke? Yeah, that was a joke. He was never here. Why did you raise your hands? No, we, Socrates in the City is hard for me to explain. So I always have to try to explain it a little bit to say that Socrates famously said the unexamined life is not worth living. And so about 20 something years ago, some friends of mine and I got the idea that New Yorkers lead particularly unexamined lives. And I'm talking about you, yes. I'm talking about you. You're shallow people and we need to learn you some stuff. So I said, wouldn't it be great if we could have an event where we could have conversations with thoughtful people, writers who can actually communicate verbally and have a conversation and talk about the big questions in life, what we sometimes call life, God, and other small topics. The big stuff that you're not supposed to talk about in cocktail parties with your shallow friends.

142: The Meuse-Argonne Offensive (pt.1) The Lost Battalion - burst 2
"Charlie commands the 1st Battalion of the 308th Regiment in the 77th Division, aka the Statue of Liberty Division. The division commander is General Robert Alexander, and though a man of action, he's not the strongest leader or strategist. Indeed, his own superior officer, 1st Corps Commander General Howard Liggett, has actually wondered if Robert's promotion over the Statue of Liberty Division was a clerical error. Be that as it may, the 77th Statue of Liberty Division is now positioned to the right of the French, on the far left of the Muse -Argonne American sector, and this hard -nosed general is determined that his doughboys will drive the Germans back. Damn the costs. For Charlie's battalion, mostly rough and tumble Lower East Side melting pot New Yorkers, peppered with freshly arrived Westerners to replace their fallen, this means advancing a little less than a mile northward into the thick Argonne Forest, up the Charlevoix Ravine, taking the main German line, then pushing to the other side of the Charlevoix Valley to take a road and railroad on the next ridge.

Welcome back. As you know, the unborn are important to God, and it turns out God is important to me, so the unborn are important to me and to many of you. And someone who's been a really heroic figure, a voice for unborn human beings is Father Frank Pavone. He's the head of Priests for Life, and I have wanted to get him on recently to talk about this issue and specifically to talk about what is troubling to many people, not just Catholics. But Pope Francis's kind of mixed messages and waffling on the issue of speaking out strongly on behalf of the unborn. So Father Frank Pavone, welcome back to this program. Hey, Eric. It's great to be with you. Thanks so much. It was great to see you in person not too long ago, and thank you for all your work and advocacy as well. Well, this is important stuff. My gosh, I feel honored that I get to do anything. I don't think I get to do much, but whatever I get to do, I praise the Lord for it. You have been really at the forefront of this issue for many years. How many years has this been, you know, something that you've been involved in so directly? 47. I got involved in the pro -life movement three years after Roe v. Wade. I was a high school senior 1976, in went on my first March for Life. And then, of course, I went into seminary. I got ordained in 88. But then in 93, I got Cardinal John O 'Connor's permission to make fighting abortion my full -time work. So, Eric, I've been leading this Priest for Life movement for 30 years now. Now, Cardinal O 'Connor, I'm a New Yorker, he was a heroic figure. He spoke strongly against evil in its various forms. But it seems like not just this pope, but that many American bishops are not in the mold of Cardinal O 'Connor. Since I'm not a Catholic, I'm a very pro -Catholic, non -Catholic, I'm always mystified. And I always want to ask my faithful Catholic friends, such as yourself, what do you make of so many leaders in the Catholic Church who don't seem to share your views on this issue? It's baffling to me. It is baffling, Eric. You're certainly not alone in that. You know, I often think about the fact that when it comes to popes, we've been spoiled for most of the lifetime of those listening to us now. We've had saints as popes, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul II, right? What a great papacy he had. And there was clarity and there was conviction and there was pastoral compassion and there was the uniting of people across multiple, multiple avenues. And now we have a pope who seems to be just confusing people left and right with so many things that he says. You know, Eric, the way I'm dealing with this is very simple. I say to people, you know, it's okay to be confused about something the pope says. We never have to be confused about what the faith says. So I ask people to focus on six simple words, what the church has always taught. That's the anchor. That's an anchor to which the pope himself is responsible. He's the vicar of Christ. Vicar of Christ is a referential term, right? It's not the word of the pope. It's the word of Christ that he's supposed to be articulating as the rest of us are to do as well. So, you know, it's a time of confusion. These popes are men. They're human. They're sinners just like we are. And they're going to have their own ideologies at times. And I'm afraid that's what we're dealing with in this case. Well, I think not just non -Catholics, but many Catholics are themselves confused about the pope. They say, oh, isn't the pope infallible? And I have to I mean, I've been on Newsmax and I am, you know, as a non -Catholic having to clarify. No, the pope is not infallible. He can say idiotic things. If he's speaking ex cathedra, that's a different story. But he's almost never speaking. No pope is hardly ever speaks ex cathedra. So it's a doctrine that does not apply to the blitherings of human beings who happen to be pope. It applies in a different way. But so many people are confused by this. And so many people, particularly Catholics, think if the pope says something, I have to agree with it. Of course, that's not true. That's not the teaching of the Catholic Church. But can you say more about that? You just touched on it. Yeah, that's a crucially important point. I've been making that point recently as well. When we say the infallibility of the pope, what we're really talking about here is the faithfulness of Jesus Christ to his bride, the church. The Lord is never going to let his entire body, the church, depart from his teaching. I mean, that would be, when you think about it, a severing, right, of the head of the body, Christ from the rest of the body. That can never happen. Now, that doesn't mean that individuals in the church can't get it wrong or fall away. They can and they will. And so the pope has a particular role when he's talking about, in an official capacity, the things that the church already believes, the things that the church has always held, those things that are rooted in the word of God and the teaching of Christ. When he pronounces to the world, as you said, ex cathedra or in certain other circumstances where it's clear a he's articulating firmly held belief of the church, what we believe is the Lord is not going to let the church go astray. It has absolutely nothing to do with agreeing with everything the pope says, especially in an instance like this that came up recently. He's giving informal comments to a group that he's sitting with, where he'll give comments off the cuff on a plane ride back to the Vatican. And, you know, this is not the way that official church teaching gets proclaimed. This is the comment of a man who happens to be sharing his opinion. Well, that's what's so important to clarify. Now, you just wrote an article at gatewaypundit .com. What is the article at gatewaypundit .com about that you've just written? It responds to this statement of the pope recently that, oh, well, you know, in America, who's who are they are, they have a backwards mentality and they're replacing faith with ideology. And I basically made two points. If by going backwards, you mean holding on to the changeless teachings of the church? Well, then that we consider that being faithful. And secondly, as far as replacing faith with ideology, if you want to find the culprits there, it's the Democrat Party. It's people like Biden and Pelosi who will say, oh, I'm a practicing Catholic. And in the meantime, they're pushing for unrestricted abortion. That's replacing faith with ideology. And then they commit the further sin of saying, oh, but this is the faith. This is, you know, misguided if the pope is trying to talk to those of us who are in the conservative movement, those of us who are aligning with policies that essentially fall on the, quote, right side of the equation. Well, this is what the pope and the bishops and everybody in the church need to realize is the Democrats right now have set themselves up against everything we cherish, against faith, against human life, against freedom, against America. Unless we realize the nature of the battle right now and stand up and defend those things, we're not going to have a Catholic Church in America. We're going to have the preachers of the gospel increasingly persecuted, thrown in prison, and our religious freedom denied. That's what the agenda of the left is. I didn't know you were going to go there, but what you're saying is exactly what I've been saying a whole lot, especially over the course of the last year. I wrote a book called Letter to the American Church where I am trying to explain to people that times have changed and we cannot pretend that the Democrats are represented by Tip O 'Neill. We have to understand the reality. And when you're dealing with a political party, it would be like dealing with a political party that is pro -slavery. And then you say, well, I don't want to be political. Well, if you're some kind of a Christian, you're obliged to be political if one of the political parties has embraced slavery. If you're silent on that, you're a pig, you're a fool, you're a hypocrite. You cannot pretend that silence is an option when things are that stark. So we can talk about slavery, but what about abortion? What about all these other things? So when I come back or when we come back, I want to talk to you about all these other issues and how if you're any kind of a Christian, you have to take them seriously. We'll be right back.
A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me. So I'm telling you, don't be fooled. The real Eric's in jail. Hey there, folks, welcome back. This is what we call hour two. I don't know why we call it hour two. We just do. And we're going to go with it. We are today introducing a new voice to the program, a new guest. His name is Gavin Wax. He's a New York based conservative activist, commentator, columnist, operative. He serves as the 76th president of the New York Young Republican Club. Gavin Wax, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me in this beautiful studio. Ain't it the truth? Piece of art. Yes. No, it is actually. And the ceiling up above us is an actual Tiffany ceiling. This club, this was a club built around the turn of the previous century. And we had as our guest, George Gilder was sitting in this seat and he looked up and he said that his great grandfather was Louis Comfort Tiffany, who who, you know, you can't make it up, right? And make that up. But Gilder is history. Yeah, that's exactly right. And so this is a really it's an historic building. And we're privileged to be recording here. Now, you are a New Yorker. Yes. I can tell from your accent. I've hidden my accent. I've taken many classes and a lot of coaching to get rid of my New York accent. But seriously, you're a New Yorker. You're the head of the New York Young Republican Club. We want to have you in to talk about what is happening tonight, which is to say, I believe there's some kind of GOP debate. The vice presidential debate. Yes, that's not true. That's funny. Oh, I didn't get the joke. I love it when people put something over on me. Trump obviously is not participating tonight. And you know why? Because he's a political genius. Actually, it's very funny. It's very funny to me that he's not participating tonight. But so what is your general sense of what we're going to see tonight or not see? I mean, I think we're going to see a lot of people at each other's throats. I think this has turned into a competition where everyone's vying for second place. I think there's going to be a stark contrast between what has begun to be this never anti -Trump coalition, which is the vast majority of the candidates, and I think a coalition of one, Vivek, who has sort of found a lane where it's been complimentary of Trump while also trying to show his own differences and his own populist MAGA credentials. And I think you're certainly going to see DeSantis and him go back to back. There's been a lot of polls that show them neck and neck. And I think it's going to be interesting. And I think whoever comes out of this is certainly going to solidify their position in second or third, especially going into these early states. And it'll be entertaining for the vast majority of the people watching who are certainly already voting for Trump. OK, so you have been on the record just now, folks, you heard it as saying, I think it's going to be interesting and entertaining. I have a different view. I think it will be not interesting and not entertaining. So I have an appointment with a hairstylist this evening at 8 p .m. No, it's kind of interesting to me to talk about this, because we're living through unprecedented times. We have never, ever, ever had anything to compare to this. You're very young, but in my lifetime and in the lifetime of anyone who's alive today, we've never seen anything like this in American politics, where you have a president who I have no doubt that the election was stolen. So we're seeing a level of corruption in the Democratic Party and our political process.

Unpacking Controversial Climate Change Initiatives
"A bunch of headlines over the last few weeks about New York City cracking down on coal and wood -fired pizzerias. There's a big debate about climate change and things that are supposed to make life better. Banning gas stoves has been a big deal as well. We thought we'd have a No Interruptions podcast conversation about this very issue. Joining us is Donna Jackson. Donna is the director of membership development for the Project 21 Black Leadership Network. She's a seasoned accountant with public and private sector experience. She knows about small business owners and entrepreneurs. And not only does she argue that these bans and these climate change initiatives are bad for entrepreneurs, they're bad for minorities as well. On the other side of this is Adam Stolerow. Adam is a founding board member of the NYC Climate Action Alliance. They've been raising awareness of the need for climate action. And he's an experienced litigator specializing in environmental, land use, regulatory and municipal law. Donna and Adam, welcome both of you to the No Interruptions podcast. I want to start with you, Adam. At least conservative media has been having a field day with the ban on gas stoves and pizzerias that have been in New York City for 100 plus years or, you know, being threatened with extinction by all of this. Can you give me your seasoned response and your role as a litigator just on an emotional level? Has it been difficult to counter, you know, the headlines that have been generated from these initiatives? Or do you think there's a logical response to what seems to be a lot of illogical overreactions? So, I use the phrase natural gas ban sometimes, too, because it's a nice shorthand. But it really makes it sound scarier than what the law, at least in New York, says, which is talking about transition in the construction of new buildings. I'm not an anti -natural gas activist. As you mentioned, I'm an environmental litigator. I help get projects built. My family owns a gas stove and a gas furnace. But there are compelling reasons to transition off natural gas, both directly for our health and for the climate, which is indirectly related to our health and their economic impacts as well. The health issues related to gas stoves cost New Yorkers $21 .7 billion in 2017 alone.

The Case of the COVID Quarantine Camps With Bobbie Anne Cox
"I asked the question, what do they plan to do with us? Last hour, I kind of left it open -ended. Joining us now is attorney Bobbi Ann Cox. Her website is coxlawyers .com. She's a fellow at the Brownstone Institute. The very important story from New York and basically New York gave Andrew Cuomo when he was governor emergency powers to just quarantine anyone. It's attorney Bobbi Ann Cox and the case of the COVID quarantine camps. Bobbi, welcome to the program. Tell us about the litigation and your story. Yes, thanks so much for having me, Charlie. Pleasure to be here. So, like you said, there was this pandemic and the New York state legislature handed over these tremendous powers to our then governor, Andrew Cuomo. He turned around and passed that power on to the Department of Health and they made a regulation which was called isolation and quarantine procedures. And it basically gave the Department of Health this incredible power to pick and choose which New Yorkers they could lock up or lock down. They didn't have to prove you were sick. They didn't have to prove you were exposed to a communicable disease. They didn't have to prove you were a threat to those around you. They could pick you out of your home with the force of police and put you into a detention facility of their choosing. You had no say. There was no time restriction. So they could have kept you locked up or they could have locked you down in your house for days, for weeks, for months. There was no age restriction. So they could have done this to you, but they also could have done this to your child or your grandchild or your elderly parent.
NY Mayor's Laughable Response to Illegal Immigration Crisis
"I want to play a piece of tape here on New York City, which you should run for mayor Eric that would be that would be great. Let's play cut 28. Law of sanctuary city was in place long before I became mad. I'm following the law as a law enforcement person you know, we follow the law. We are now in court now today, asking the judge to revisit this law to deal with this humanitarian crisis because even when they decided to put in place that law, no one thought that they would be dealing with the humanitarian crisis of disproportion. So Eric, you know, this is interesting. There's a lot of news happening in New York, but what's your take as a New Yorker about the flow of the illegals just coming endlessly into New York? I laugh. What is there to say? It's all preposterous. It's all absolutely preposterous. The flow of illegals into this nation. The fact that we don't have the political will to stand up against this lawlessness, to stand against an attack on our sovereignty as Americans. The fact that we have innumerable anti American people in embedded everywhere throughout our government. So, you know, by the time they get to New York, I just laugh. It's like, are you kidding me? Now, you're complaining now because you don't want to deal with them. Well, you know, why don't you move to Arizona? I don't really understand what the issue got plenty of issues here. But it's ridiculous, of course, it's ridiculous. There's lawlessness. All of this is fixable, Charlie. You know, to have a city like San Francisco or Portland or whatever. To have these places, go to hell. It is all fixable.
Lessons Learned From the Trial of Bernhard Goetz
"The Bernie gets case in New York in 1985 I know Jim and Mike remember well It was the case really was a local criminal charge For those of you unfamiliar with the Bernard getz case Geraldo mentioned that this morning on Fox even though he kind of screwed up what was going on in the penny Neely case Bernie gets was what we call strap hangers in New York strap hangers a passenger on the train You used to have strap number to strap it all this traps So they called strap hangers right He was a strap hanger And he had sadly in the mid 80s growing accustomed to the massive criminality that was happening in the New York City subway system So Bernie gets decided that he was going to protect himself and he was not going to He was not going to violate the number one rule that Dan bongino show which is what Jim What's the overall Don't get dead Don't you get dead Don't get that daddy So Bernie gets didn't want to get dead But Bernie gets understood that riding on the trains in New York City in the mid 80s Your chances of getting dead Jim you'd agree right You were in New York I were pretty high They were reasonably high if you were riding on a New York City subway mid 80s You could get that at any moment For doing absolutely nothing So Bernie gets decides he's going to go out and acquire himself a handgun And of course not long after that Bernie gets gets accosted on the train a couple of young men gunshots and then well for the young men they arrest Bernie gets He's called the subway vigilante of course the race hustlers try to make it a big race case as if Bernie gets one out there and accosted himself That's not what happened Bernie gets got convicted on the weapons charge but got off on the other charges Why Because New Yorkers who were part of the jury pool had all been harassed by a similar group of young people who went on trains to cause problems and they said you know what I'm tired of this crap too
Graphic Footage Shows Former Marine's Heroic Actions on Subway
"You guys were one of the first outlets that I saw yesterday and I actually saw that Charlie tweeted this link, but here you have it from the post millennial full footage reveals former marine Daniel penny putting Jordan Neely in recovery position, passengers complimenting him. You know, this is graphic footage folks, but it's important because what you have here is you have AOC and her ilk wanting to stoke a race riot. They're taking over the subway system in New York City. And yet here, this footage and we didn't play the audio because it's hard to hear, but just believe us that there are fellow passengers complimenting the former marine penny for his handling of the situation. And you actually will see in this footage that nearly is still moving and they are trying to resuscitate him or bring him back to consciousness. I mean, they keep saying, well, he's going to be fine. He's going to be fine. He just needs to kind of get his air back. What do you make of this and Libby, how did you get this so quickly? I mean, you guys were so fast on this footage. Yeah, so actually, we did not find the footage. It was found by myth informed Milwaukee, who are really close friends of ours and Sean frac is the one who founded it occurred to him to go looking for Spanish language posts about it. And so that's where he found it. It was a Spanish language post on Facebook. He sent it over to us, and we wrote it up right away. Tremendous. Yeah. So that's how we ended up with it. Well, I think it's important to note when you look at this footage that and what happened to mister Neely, it's really important to note that it takes a lot for New Yorkers to get out of their chairs on the subway and to actually deal with a crazy person on the subway. It takes a lot. So I lived in New York for a very long time. I love New York very much. Being on the subway with crazy people, what you typically do. I mean, there's crazy, I've been on the subway with people running around the car with knives. Screaming and yelling, and everybody just keeps their eyes down and hopes that the crazy person doesn't target you. I've been sat next to people on men on very crowded trains and had them do absolutely horrible things to themselves while rubbing up against me. And trying to get people to move out of the way so that I could get out of the seat. So it takes an awful lot for New Yorkers to get up and do something. So this man must have been really behaving in a nuts and crazy way
The Real History of Repeat Criminal Jordan Neely
"Have you seen the videos posted on social media? Of the guy. Who died? He used to be a Michael Jackson impersonator and they give you the impression all he was doing was standing on the subway, doing a Michael Jackson routine. You need to know what this guy was about. In 2019, a guy named Castillo balthazar balthazar was assaulted by Jordan Neely, the 68 year old 68 year old New Yorker was interviewed by the New York Daily News. He said he should have been in some rehab center. On June 27th, 2019, Valtteri was on a platform at the west fourth street subway station in Greenwich Village. When Jordan Neely, the shank, the martyr, walked up to him and punched balthazar in the face. Balthazar, who's a Mexican immigrant who lives in Harlem, said I was waiting for the train looking at the monitor to see how long it would take to come out of nowhere, he punched me in the face. You know what else this shape has done? On November 12th, 2021, Jordan Neely was arrested for slugging a 67 year old female stranger in the face. And she exited a subway station in the East Village. This guy did this over and over and over and over again. He would go up to people and punch him in the mouth. 67 year old woman. That's what kind of a monster this guy was.
Some call NYC subway choking criminal, others hold judgment
"Protesters in New York are calling for an arrest in the death of Jordan Neely, who died after being put in a chokehold by a fellow subway passenger. A New York medical examiner's office ruled that Jordan Neely's death was a homicide from compression of the neck, groups of protesters in New York are demanding charges, witnesses say nearly was acting erratically on an up train in the New York subway Monday afternoon, threatening passengers and throwing garbage and his jacket when he was tackled by bystanders, police questioned and then released a 24 year old white marine showed on video holding nearly in a headlock for at least three minutes, prosecutors promised a rigorous investigation and police are seeking additional witnesses, photos and video that might help illuminate what transpired. Some New Yorkers see the choking as the latest in a long history of attacks on black city residents. Others are withholding judgment, New York mayor Eric Adams said Thursday there were many layers to the incident, saying he respects the process. Governor Kathy hochul called the video encounter horrific to view, and said nearly family deserves justice. I am Jennifer King
Chokehold killed man restrained by NYC subway passengers
"The Manhattan district attorney's office says its investigating Monday's death of a man on the New York City subway, who died after being restrained by three other passengers.

His name has not been released publicly. On Wednesday, people protested inside the subway station demanding justice for kneeling, whose recognizable to some New Yorkers as a Michael Jackson impersonator, who often danced in the Times Square transit hub, the medical examiner's office has classified Neely's death as a homicide from a chokehold.

From where the old Mexican or they all Central America. No, they're a mixture of mixture El Salvador Honduras. Guatemala and so on. Okay. And he asked them now with their translator because I had a translator. Okay, that makes sense. So you asked them through a translator our borders racist. And I remember one of them laughed at you. Of course, every single one said, of course, countries have to have borders. And that includes the United States. They were incredulous. They were incredulous. And these people trying to get in. Yes.
