A highlight from 1415: Bitcoin Will Soon Hit $500,000 - Winklevoss Twins
"Welcome everybody to Crypto News Alerts, the number one daily Bitcoin pod. In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest Bitcoin technical analysis as Bitcoin recaptures $27 ,000 and quoting Max Keiser, the high priest of Bitcoin, Bitcoin is the North Star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation, confiscation and censorship preach. Also in today's show, Ethereum futures ETFs can start trading as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts, we'll also be discussing the SEC pushing back the deadline for spot Bitcoin ETF apps, definitely not a good look. And speaking of ETF apps, I'm also going to be sharing the five highlights of Gary Gensler's evasive testimony before Congress quoting Senator Warren Davidson. Gary Gensler's tenure at the SEC highlights two key problems. Number one, Gary Gensler's problem and number two, the SEC's structural problem. That's why I introduced the SEC Stabilization Act to fire Gary Gensler and restructure the SEC. Let's freaking go. Also in today's show, crypto analyst Michal van de Poppe predicts a very positive quarter four for 2023. I'll be sharing his targets in which he outlines. We're also going to be discussing the SEC's inaction on the spot Bitcoin ETF is a complete and utter disaster, according to the Winklevoss twins. And speaking of the Winklevoss twins, I'm also going to be sharing with you their $500 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, which they say is coming soon. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market. All this plus so much more in today's show. Yo what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again that's cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome everyone. This is pod episode number 1415. I'm your host JV. Today is September 28, 2023 and Bitcoin is finally back above 27 ,000 as we're pumping right when I hit the live button. We're currently above 27 ,100 up over 300 % today and we continue climbing. Welcome everyone in the live chat. I gracefully appreciate y 'all. Yeah, who knows? Maybe we'll hit 28 ,000 by the time today's live stream is over. Let's see. And make sure to let me know where you're tuning in from in that live chat as I'll be giving everyone a shout out towards the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's dive into today's market watch. As you can see here, every major crypto back in the green. Bitcoin above 27 G's. We got Ether up three and a half percent trading at $1 ,655 BNB, XRP, Cardano, you name it. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we're currently sitting above $1 .07 trillion with about $26 billion in volume in the past 24 hours, Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and even the Ether dominance on the rise today at 18 .5 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, holy moly, compound up 20 % trading under 49 bucks, followed by Thor chain up 13 % trading at $1 .94, followed by Lido Dow up 8 % trading at $1 .59 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, massive gains, which we love to see, especially after a pretty bearish altcoin season to say the least. We got CompLead in the pack here as well up 20 % and Rune up 13 .4 % and RLB up 13 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 46 in fear yesterday at 44 last week, a 47 and last month, a 39 in fear. So there you have it, fam. How many of you are currently bullish on Bitcoin and how many of you took advantage of the recent dip? If so, let me know. It's good to see we pump in once again. So hopefully those positions are now in the green. Now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis, check out the charts and why specifically the market is pumping right now. Here we go. Let's get it. Bitcoin hit new weekly highs after the September 28th Wall Street open as markets awaited fresh cues from the US Federal Reserve. And here you can see in the Bitcoin one hour Campbell chart, pretty freaking bullish to say the least. Data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin price strength staging a comeback, having delivered what some referred to as a classic pump and dump 24 hours prior during the performance. Bitcoin hit a high of 26 .8, which appeared on Bitstamp as a result of 2 % daily gains before Bitcoin retraced all of its progress, then a slower grind higher than took hold with the bulls edging closer to 27 ,000, which we finally just recaptured here a few moments ago. Now GDP for quarter two grew by 1 .7 % year on year below the projected 2%, while the PCE index data for August came in in line with the expectations, quoting analyst Keith Allen, bring on the volatility. Now meanwhile, data from Binance's order book uploaded by Allen showed little by way of resistance standing in the way of the spot price under the 27 ,000 mark. So as you can see, just more bullishness for the king crypto, the macro data constituted just the prelude of the day's main event. Meanwhile, Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve due to the comment later on today, Powell, whose recent words failed to deliver noticeable volatility to the crypto markets was due to speak at the Fed's conversation with the chairman, a teacher town hall meeting event in Washington DC at 4 p .m. Eastern today. Now commenting on the state of play on Bitcoin markets, popular trader Dan crypto trades was a little more optimistic around the strength of the day's move compared to yesterday, September 27th, quoting him here back to yesterday's highs, but with considerably less open interests. No doubt there is longs chase in here, but it is less frothy than it was yesterday. Would still like to see longs chill out and not get to a full retrace later on. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts. Meanwhile, quoting another analyst, right, capital Bitcoin is right back at the bull market support band cluster of moving averages, challenging to break out beyond them. Let's freaking go. Now, elsewhere in the day's analysis, he acknowledged that 29 ,000 could make a reappearance and still form a part of a broader come down for BTC. As he shares here, it's important to remember the Bitcoin could technically rally even as high as 29 ,000 to form a new lower high, which would be phase A and B. He explained alongside this chart. So there you have it. Let me know if you are currently more bullish or bearish on the King crypto and quoting the high priest of Bitcoin, Max Kaiser, Bitcoin is the North star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation confiscation and censorship preach. Now welcome to y 'all just joining us in today's podcast. As always, I appreciate everyone's daily support and means the world. And now let's discuss our next story of the day as Bitcoin continues to pump, shall we? We're going to be discussing the Ethereum futures ETFs, which can get approval. They say potentially as early as next week. So let's break this one down, shall we? Ether futures ETFs could start trading for the first time in the United States as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts on September 28th, which is today, Bloomberg intelligence analyst, James Safart said in an ex post, it was looking like the sec is going to let a bunch of Ethereum futures ETFs go next week. Potentially. His comments were in response to fellow ETF analyst, Eric Balchunes, who said he was hearing that the U S SCC wanted to accelerate the launch of Ethereum future ETFs quitting him here. They want it off their plate before the shutdown, he said, adding that he's heard various filers updates on their documents by Friday afternoon so they can start trading as early as Tuesday next week. As outlined here on X. Now the U S S government's expected to shut down at 1201 a .m. Eastern on October 1st. If Congress fails to agree on or provide funding for the new fiscal year, which is expected to impact the country's financial regulators amongst federal agencies. Now neither specified their sources for the latest update on the long list of crypto ETFs in the queue. There are currently 15 ether futures ETFs from nine issuers currently awaiting approval. According to the analysts in a September 27th note, which is yesterday, companies proposing an Ethereum futures or hybrid ETF product include VanEck pro shares, grayscale volatility shares bitwise direction, as well as round Hill. The analysts gave ether future ETFs a 90 % chance of launching in October with Valkyrie's ether exposure on October 3rd, quoting them here. We expect pure Ethereum futures ETFs to start trading the following week, thanks to volatility shares actions. However, we don't expect all of them to launch. So do note that now as previously reported that ether futures ETFs may be approved in October causing the 11 % spike in ether prices and probably why the Ethereum dominance is up as it's been stagnant and down for quite some time. Ether prices are on the gain, currently just under $1 ,700 and we'll see how high we continue to pump, but do note crypto future products aren't as hotly as anticipated as their spot based alternatives. There are already been Bitcoin futures ETFs approved in the United States since 2021, which is a fact, which leads us to the million dollar question. Why have they approved a futures ETFs, but continue to deny and delay all the spot ETFs? We're going to be getting to that a little later as I share with you the highlights from Congress pressing the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. It's going to get very interesting here in a little bit, but now let's dive a little deeper and discuss specifically the spot Bitcoin ETFs and what is happening and why they're being pushed back and the latest updates of where we're currently at. So here we go and welcome y 'all just tuning in. Make sure to smash that like fam. The US SEC has delayed deciding whether to approve or disapprove spot Ether ETFs. And like I said, we're going to be getting in October potentially get some approvals, but in separate notices filed September 27th, the SEC said it would designate a longer period on whether to approve or disapprove these proposed changes. The commission finds it inappropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change and the issues raised there within. The delay came the same day as the NASDAQ market filed the proposed rule change with the SEC for listing its mix ETH basically ETF, a combination of Ether holdings and futures contracts and also proposed rule changes with the New York Stock Exchange, ARCA for the Grayscale Ethereum Futures Trust, hashtag Bitcoin Futures ETF and the CBOE BXE exchange for the Franklin Bitcoin ETF were all filed. September 27th, that's right. If you're not familiar with Franklin Templeton, there are one and a half trillion dollar asset manager. They're also applying for an ETF. Now the SEC announced September 26th, it would designate a longer period to decide on these spot ETF applications. And as James Safart shares here, here's VanEx delay as expected. So another one, I mean, exactly what we were expecting from the SEC. Now in August, ARK investment manager, founder and CEO Kathy Wood speculated that should the SEC move forward with the spot ETF approvals, it would allow multiple listings simultaneously to avoid giving any single company an advantage over another in the market. Her remarks came before Grayscale Investments won a court battle with the SEC over its spot Bitcoin ETF app, which will likely be reviewed in which they're trying to turn their GBTC product into a spot ETF. So hopefully it happens. To date, the SEC has never approved the spot crypto ETF in the United States, but has allowed the listing of crypto linked futures ETFs and a leveraged Bitcoin futures ETF. Manipulation, fam. The next deadlines for the spot crypto ETF apps from firms, which include the largest asset manager in the world, BlackRock, Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Valkyrie, Bitwise and Fidelity are all scheduled for October. So we'll see how this is likely to play out considering October is now only three days away. Are we going to get some ETF approvals by then? Who knows? I think more than likely they're going to push it back again. However, Congress right now is pressing Gary Gensler to approve a spot Bitcoin ETF and ETPs immediately. So now let's break this down. If you missed Gensler, he was pressed by Congress just yesterday. And I know it's on everyone's mind. So let's break down some of the highlights from this recent hearing with Congress and the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. Let's break it down, shall we? Here we go. Blame for kneecapping capital markets in the U .S. and slam for dodging questions around Bitcoin and Pokemon cards. SEC chair Gensler appears to have had one hell of a grilling from Congress this week. September 27th, the U .S. SEC chief again found himself in front of lawmakers in a scheduled hearing to discuss his agency's oversight of the markets. Here are some of the highlights. First and foremost, you are the Tonya Harding of security regulations. We should create a Gary Gensler diss track, right? One of the more colorful analogies came from U .S. Representative Andy Barr, who accused Gensler of kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with regulatory red tape. Barr referred to the old testimony from Gensler where Gensler argued that the U .S. is the largest, most sophisticated and innovative capital market in the world and that shouldn't have been taken for granted as even gold medalists must keep training. With all due respect, Mr. Chairman, if the U .S. capital markets are gold medalists, you are the Tonya Harding of securities regulations. Ouch. You are kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with an avalanche of red tape coming out of your commission. Preach. Barr is presumably referring to a scandal where U .S. ice skater Tonya Harding, I'm sure you all remember the story, I was a kid when this happened, and an assailant to attack her rival Nancy Kerrigan in the lead up to the 94 U .S. Figure Skating Championships and Winter Olympics. Kerrigan ended up not competing in the U .S. Championships and here is John Dickens who shared it here. Mr. Barr to Gensler, it's hilarious, you gotta watch these clips for yourself if you haven't seen them. So the next highlight, I wish the Biden administration would say, you are fired. That's right, shout out to Warren Davidson who also ripped into Gensler saying he hoped that the Biden administration would fire him. Powerful words. Davidson accused Gensler of pushing a woke political and social agenda and abusing his role as the SEC chairman. Preach. Massive shout out to the senators here doing their job. Damn good job. The U .S. Representative added that he hopes that the SEC Stabilization Act he introduced with fellow representative Tom Emmer could make it happen. Quoting him here, you're making the case for this bill, which is the SEC Stabilization Act. Every day you're acting as a chairman, he concluded, and Gensler wasn't even given a chance to respond. Now next highlight, Gensler reiterates Bitcoin isn't a security. That's right. When asked by U .S. House Committee Financial Services Chair Patrick McHenry whether Bitcoin is a security, Gensler eventually relented stating the Bitcoin didn't meet the Howie test. Quoting him here, it does not meet the Howie test, which is the law of the land. Then McHenry suggested Bitcoin must be a commodity, which Gensler avoided answering. Mr. No Clarity Gary, hence how he got the nickname, saying the test for that is outside the scope of U .S. security laws. Mr. Gensler, we're living in a clown world with this guy. Henry also suggested that Gensler try to choke off the digital asset ecosystem facts and refuse to be transparent with Congress about the SEC's connections with the FTX and former CEO SBF facts. Gensler also wasn't given the chance to respond to the claims made by McHenry. Next highlight, are Pokemon trading card securities? Gensler says it depends. Can't make this stuff up. Quoting Representative Richie Torres, I cross -examine SEC Chair Gensler about the term investment contract, which is key to determining his authority over crypto. Gensler struggled to answer basic questions like whether an investment contract requires a contract. His evasions are defeating and damning. Suppose I was to purchase Pokemon card. Would you constitute a security for this transaction? Gensler responded, well, I don't know the context before eventually concluding it isn't a security if you purchased it in a store. And then Torres asked if I were to purchase a tokenized Pokemon card on a digital exchange via the blockchain. Is that then a transaction? And then Mr. No Clarity Gary said, I'd have to know more because I don't know anything. Yeah, you can't make this stuff up. Gensler then explained to it when it's investing the public can anticipate profits based upon the efforts of others. Then the core of the Howie test, which it is, Torres called Gensler's evasions as damning to say the least. And the next highlight, a sign of defiance. Meanwhile, amongst the back and forth cross examinations between Gensler and representatives, the eagle eyed observers noticed a Coinbase stand with crypto logo behind the SEC chairman. Isn't that interesting? The Coinbase led initiative is a 14 month long campaign that launched back in August aiming to push crypto legislation in the United States. Coinbase also ran a stand with crypto day, which took place in Washington, D .C. September 27th to advocate for better cryptocurrency innovation and policy. So again, shout out to Warren Davidson, Tom Emmer, all the senators for holding Gary Gensler accountable. Hopefully they do something about it. What's your thoughts, fam? Do you think Gary is likely to listen to them and follow their instructions and approve a Bitcoin ETF immediately? Or do you think he'll continue kicking the can down the road as long as possible until he leaves his position as the chairman of the SEC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's break down the latest prediction coming from crypto analyst Michael Vanay Pop for some price actions for Bitcoin for the fourth quarter, which we are currently in for 2023. Then we'll break down the latest from the Winklevoss twins and their five hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price action as the price action of Bitcoin continues to pump, baby. Let's go. Here we go. Let's break this baby down. Crypto trader Michael Vanay Pop is expressing bullish sentiment on Bitcoin in the coming months. Despite the recent struggles in a new video, he says that Bitcoin is on the cusp of reaching levels that offer accumulation opportunities per inch. According to the analyst, the trader Bitcoin could subsequently start an uptrend. Ultimately, Bitcoin is into an area of consolidation here, which makes it very likely we're going to have to retest here at twenty five, six and twenty five eight. If we are having a recess in that region, then there is this zone where I want to start buying my entries because of the recess, which is the ultimate recess. And if we're not going to get that, the flip to twenty six thousand five hundred, that is going to be the area where I think I want to activate my positions as well. And then we can start targeting twenty eight thousand. And then we can also start targeting the higher numbers, thirty thousand dollars plus or even more in the projection of quarter four. That is going to be very positive overall. Let me know if you agree that we'll have an overall positive quarter as we about to enter October. Let's go. Vanay Pop also says Bitcoin's current price action is similar to what was witnessed in the prior pre halving year, quitting him again. As long as we stay above the 200 week exponential moving average, we most likely are going to continue to the upside. And it starts to be very comparable to the period that we witnessed in 2015 and 2016. In this case, we needed it, but we started to consolidate and start to trend up afterwards. It is very likely to this period to slowly but surely the price starts to crawl up. And then we are going to have a case of the upside in the markets overall. And to watch this video analysis, the analyst did check the show notes below the video in the description. It's entitled Bitcoin price. I am looking to buy. So there you have it. And let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts and are you currently bullish on the King crypto or do you think we're going to dip and test the lower levels? Let me know your honest thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day. And the Winklevoss twins on the spot, Bitcoin ETF continuously being basically denied and kicked back and pushed back for the past decade. And then we're going to dive into their half a million dollar Bitcoin price prediction and why they're so confident that the Bitcoin price is going to hit their big target. So here we go. Let's discuss them with the SEC first. This was a story which was, let's see when their tweet was actually, let's scroll down. This is Cameron Winklevoss. This was actually on July 1st, it got 1 .1 million views. Now let me read the tweet. Today marks 10 years since Tyler and I filed for the first spot Bitcoin ETF. That's right. Over a decade ago, the SEC governor's refusal to approve these products for a decade has been a complete and utter disaster for US investors and demonstrates how the SEC is a failed regulator. Here's why. They protected investors from the best performing asset of the last decade. They pushed investors into toxic products like the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, GBTC, which trades at a massive discount to NAV and charges astronomical fees. They pushed spot Bitcoin activity offshore to unlicensed and unregulated venues. They pushed investors into the arms of FTX, subjecting them to one of the largest financial frauds in modern history. Preach. Maybe the SEC will reflect on its dismal record and instead of overstepping a statutory power and trying to act like a gatekeeper of economic life, it'll focus on fulfilling its mandate of investor protection, fostering fair and orderly markets and facilitating capital formation. This would have led to much better outcomes for US investors. Preach. In the meantime, best of luck to all those fighting the good fight to bring the US spot Bitcoin ETFs to life onwards. So much respect. I mean, 10 years of denying this ETF. I mean, you can't make this stuff up. I think they shared perfectly some of the reasoning. It's to hurt the investors and keep you poor and keep you wrecked and keep you desolate and dependent upon a broken government that threw us overboard so frickin long ago. So much respect to the Winklevoss twins. If you didn't know, they're the owners of the Gemini exchange and they were the very first ever to submit the spot Bitcoin ETF app to the SEC over a decade ago. And obviously they're sick and tired of Gary Gensler, his no clarity and his shenanigans. Just like the rest of us, it's time to fire Gensler. If you think Gensler should be investigated and potentially fired, let me know in the comments right down below and I'll be reading your comments out loud here in a little bit. Now for our breaking story of the day, let's discuss the Winklevoss twins and their case for a $500 ,000 Bitcoin price, which they believe is coming soon. So let's break this down, shall we? And welcome to y 'all just joining us in the live chat. Much love and much respect. So here we go. Winklevoss twins' prediction, Bitcoin will soon hit $500 ,000 per coin. And why? And again, shout out to Tyler and Cameron. Let's get, we already know their background, early Bitcoin investors, OGs, early investors as well with Facebook. Some claim that they're the real creators of Facebook and Zuckerberg stole it. But nonetheless, in a recent interview with the National News, the twins explained they remain convinced of the future of crypto. The main reason is the revolutionary and technical properties as well as the potential of Bitcoin to act as a store of value similar to gold. And in addition, crypto has many other advantages, mainly through programmability. Hence, the Winklevoss brothers believe that Bitcoin could even replace the precious metal. In the long term, Tyler Winklevoss shared the following. If you look at the properties that make gold valuable, Bitcoin matches each attribute or does better. The gold disruption story of Bitcoin is super powerful. We believe in it. Tyler Winklevoss explained his reasoning for the $500 ,000 Bitcoin price action, quitting him here. If you do the math, 21 million in the supply of Bitcoin, the market cap of gold, let's say it's 10 trillion, maybe it's 11 trillion, somewhere in that ballpark, that puts one Bitcoin if it disrupts gold and gets that market cap at $500 ,000 per coin. The two brothers did not want to give specific investment tips. However, Cameron reveals the strategy that they use, which is generally the simplest, which is simply HODL. Hold on for dear life, quitting him here. Generally speaking, if you subscribe to Bitcoin being a store of value type investment, then that strategy is HODL. The same way you would HODL gold is you buy and HODL long term investments. So according to the Winklevoss twins predicting the Bitcoin price will hit $500 ,000, they say predictions are difficult, but they believe that Bitcoin will hit the milestone within a decade. And when they were more recently interviewed and asked, where do you see Bitcoin in five years time? Here's what Cameron Winklevoss responded. We usually take a decade view on it. When we wrote a piece on the value that predicted it being $500 ,000 Bitcoin, we said within the decade. And I believe they wrote that in 2020. So they're basically saying by the year 2030, they're anticipating a $500 ,000 plus Bitcoin price with Bitcoin overtaking that of gold as far as the market cap. Now is that in three years from now or nine years? The timing part is hard, but I think the Bitcoin created $1 trillion worth of value in under a decade. That is fact. I believe back in November of 2021, Bitcoin's market cap surpassed a trillion dollar milestone and the total crypto market cap surpassed $3 trillion. But as of today, we're closer to a $500 billion Bitcoin market cap with the entire crypto market cap down to a trillion. Now, it also spawned many huge productions such as Ethereum and the entire asset class. He continues. If you look at the value increases in Bitcoin, it is this punctuated equilibrium where it is steady, steady, steady, and then boom, it reaches a new price level. This is the new normal. So it can happen very quickly. So there you have it, fam. Ultimately saying when Bitcoin takes off, it explodes quick and vast. And especially considering that two of the most bullish catalysts in Bitcoin history were on the cusp of. Six months away from a Bitcoin halving, we all know the Bitcoin cycles every four years, it drives the Bitcoin price up as it increases the scarcity as well as increase demand, basic stock to flow, numbers must go up. And we also have the approval of a Bitcoin ETF likely to take place in 2024, especially with Congress on Gensler's. But we also have the ETF experts such as Eric Balchunes given a 95 % chance probability that a spot Bitcoin ETF likely get approved in 2024. Those two catalysts will absolutely make Bitcoin rip to new all time highs entering price discovery mode like we have never seen before. So how high do you think the Bitcoin price will likely climb by the time of this next halving? Roughly six months out, scheduled to take place sometime in April of next year. Let me know your thoughts in the comments right down below. And don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

Fresh update on "olympics" discussed on Thinking Crypto News & Interviews
"And, you know, he's really totally, I mean, like I said, he's front running in Congress, he's front running the administration. I mean, there are people in the administration that reach out and say, well, you know, he's really, you know, he's a problem, but unfortunately they're not, I mean, the people. There are some people in the administration, not necessarily the majority, but the people with the power and influence over the agenda love the agenda Gary Gensler is doing. And, you know, they, they just, you know, delight themselves. Just like Gary Gensler, you know, being, being, you know, questioned aggressively by members of Congress is like a badge of honor for these folks. You know, and they look at it as like, oh, that's great. You know, I love that we're pushing your buttons and it's like, no, you're wrecking the markets for America, American capital markets. And, you know, I thought my colleague, Andy Barr had one of the best comments during the hearing, you know, Gary Gensler said, you know, you know, even Olympians have to train to stay on top and to stay the best. So we should do that for our capital markets. And Barr rebutted him and said, you know, if America's capital markets are like the Olympics and the Olympians, you're like the Tanya Harding of the Olympics, kneecapping our capital markets. And, you know, for people that don't get that dated reference, Tanya Harding assaulted the person that was going to go ahead of her in the Olympics and struck her in the knee, basically trying to wreck her gold medal hopes over not being able to beat her. So it was, it was a pretty good comparison to kind of the way Gary Gensler is going about it. And do the decisions by the courts in the grayscale and the Ripple lawsuit, possibly soon in Coinbase, do those decisions help to reduce the power or the influence of those folks you mentioned that are behind Gary Gensler who have that level of power? I hope it kind of takes away their patience. You know, it's like, yeah, you know, we've tolerated this for a while, but it is time to move on. I don't know. But, you know, it's, it's strong language for a court to say that something was arbitrary and capricious. And, you know, for the lay person, those are just regular words, but that's, that's like the essential, like screaming all caps profanity at somebody from the courts. They're like, this is, you know, BS basically is there in legal jargon speak. And, you know, so it is a pretty big brush back to the SEC to have that kind of language come from the courts. But, you know, Gary Gensler's thing is, well, you know, the courts, whatever. So, you know, on the one hand, he holds up the Howey test as like everything. And to me, that's like a Jackson Pollock painting. I mean, it might be admirable, but you can make it mean all kinds of things. And, you know, we need a law really that ratifies to Howey test for everything, but we certainly do for digital assets. And I thought Richie Torres, a Democrat from New York, did a great job highlighting, like, if there's a contract, if you say there's an investment contract, where's the contract? Find a court case where there was a contract without a contract. So Gary Gensler is trying to say, everything's an investment contract. And he's like, well, where's the contract? And that's not what the case law says. Yeah, absolutely. I love the example you brought up about the Pokemon cards too, because a lot of people can relate to that. And there was obviously the SEC settlement with Stoner Cats NFTs recently. So we need clarity. It's much needed. I know we're running up on time. So I've got a few more questions for you. I personally hold Ethereum. I stake Ethereum. And I certainly believe in it as a project, but there are folks who are concerned about what took place with Ethereum and the SEC. And I think it's more so on the SEC side. And that is with Bill Hinman. Some of this information was released via the Ripple lawsuit, as well as FOIA requests from a nonprofit organization.
A highlight from The Light of the World
"Next year, the Summer Olympic Games will be held in Paris, but before they begin, there is a race or maybe just a relay where the Olympic torch is lit and carried all throughout France, going from city to city until it ends up in Paris, where it lights the big Olympic cauldron at the opening ceremony. Maybe some of you have seen this on TV in the past, but it's a several month event. As this begins, it actually starts in Olympia, Greece, and then will end where the Olympics begin. Well, the passage we will look at tonight tells us that we as Christians are a lot like those runners carrying the torch, but the torch we carry is the light of the gospel and the land that we are to run in is the entire world. And the event that we are ushering in is not the Olympics, but it's the second and final coming of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. So with this in mind, please turn with me to Matthew chapter 5, specifically verses 14 through 16. Matthew 5 verses 14 through 16, where Jesus says, you are the light of the world, a city set on a hill cannot be hidden, nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a stand and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven. Well, I want us to take a deeper look at this passage by examining it under three points. First our calling explained in the first part of verse 14. Secondly our calling illustrated in the second part of verse 14 through verse 15. And then thirdly, our calling applied verse 16. Then I'd like to make four uses of this passage, but let's pray together one more time and then we will begin. Heavenly Father, we thank you for the light of Jesus Christ. We thank you for the light of your word. We thank you for the light of your grace. We pray that all of these things would shine upon us now. Give us understanding in the word of God, enlighten our hearts and our minds to what Jesus says to us here in this passage. We ask in Jesus name, Amen. Well, first, our calling explained in the first part of verse 14. Jesus has just told the disciples that they are the salt of the earth. Now he switches to another metaphor, which describes the identity and calling of his disciples in another way when he says you are the light of the world. Now, what does Jesus mean by this description? Well, first, let's consider the light. Light in the Bible is almost always associated with God. He's the creator and dispenser of physical light. Just think about Genesis Chapter one there, we read about how God speaks light into existence and then he makes the sun and the moon and the stars to give light on the earth. But God is also the creator and dispenser of spiritual light. Throughout the Bible, the term light takes on a figurative meaning and it refers to the blessings that God bestows on mankind. So he is the spiritual light source that shines down his blessings of mercy and grace and truth and salvation and life and glory on us. Now, this is especially true of Jesus Christ. Some of his titles include the light of the world, a light for the nations, the bright morning star, the lamp of the New Jerusalem, the day spring from on high and the sun of righteousness. And for those of us who are Christians, the Lord Jesus Christ has shown in our hearts the light of the gospel. Christ has taught us the way of salvation. He has poured out on us his saving grace. He has given us eternal life. He has opened our eyes to see his glory. He has shined spiritual light upon us. So Christ has put his light within us, in our hearts, in our souls, in our church, and now we're considered light in the Lord, not light in and of ourselves, but we're light in the Lord. We're not the spiritual light source, but we are reflectors of that light. We're mediators of that light. We are those who are to shine forth the light and blessings of Jesus Christ to the whole world. So that's the light. But let's also considered the part of the phrase of the world. World here, I think, means Earth, like the previous description. We are the salt of the Earth, not referring to the physical ground, but referring to the peoples and the communities and the societies of the world. But implied in this description of us is, I think, the natural condition and state of the world. If we are called the light of the world. Or the light that shines on the world. What does this mean about the world? What means that the world needs light? If we're the light of the world, the world needs our light. It means that by nature, the world is shrouded in darkness. But not physical darkness, moral and spiritual darkness. Natural man is in the dark. He is completely lost. He is ignorant of the way of salvation. He is enslaved to his sins. He is living in the shadow of death. He is ruled over by the devil and he is under the curse and wrath of God. But this is where we come in as the church, we are the light of the world, and for lights to be useful, they have to shine. They have to emit light, and it is our calling and our duty as little lights to shine forth the big light of Christ on this spiritually dark world. Now, this is the very point that Jesus makes in the next part of this passage. So let's now look at our calling illustrated. Jesus illustrates what it looks like for us to be the light of the world, and he does so in the second half of verse 14 and in verse 15. And there he tells us that we are like a shining city set upon a hill. And secondly, we are like a bright light set on a stand within a house. So let's look at those two illustrations separately. First, we're considered a shining city in the second part of verse 14. Some have likened America to the shining city upon a hill. It wasn't just Ronald Reagan who said that. There's others who have said that in the past. But this is not what Jesus says here. He doesn't say America is the shining city set upon the hill. He says that his disciples or his church or his spiritual nation is like a city set on a hill, and for good or for ill, this city cannot be hidden from people's eyes. We're city set on a hill, and I think this is one place where the eschatological promises of the Old Testament find their fulfillment in the New Testament. What do I mean by that? Well, throughout the prophets, it was prophesied, especially in Isaiah and Micah, that Zion, the city of the living God, would one day be set on the highest mountain for all the nations to see and flock to. Read about in Isaiah two and Micah chapter four. And there the nations would learn the ways of God and they would walk in the light of the Lord. Well, I think Jesus here is telling us that the church is the fulfillment of all of those prophecies, that the church is Zion, the city of the living God. The church is set on the highest of hills and the greatest of mountains. The church has the place of prominence and preeminence in this world. And that's God's doing. God has exalted the church to this highest position on earth. But why has he done so? He's done so, so that all the nations and all the kingdoms and all the societies on earth might see our light shine so the nations would flock into the city of God and learn of his ways and walk in his light. So a city like this cannot operate incognito. It will attract the attention of the world. People will either see it and run to it as a place of instruction and refuge and salvation, or they will see it and charge at it and fight against it as an enemy fortress. But either way, the church, as the exalted city of God, is to shed the light of Jesus Christ upon this dark world. So we're like a city set on a hill for all to see. Secondly, we're considered a bright lamp in verse 15. Here, Jesus moves on to another illustration of the church as the light of the world. And he says this, nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand and it gives light to all in the house. Well, this is pretty self -explanatory and nobody lights a light or turns on a light in order to simply cover it up and hide it. Why do we light a light in a house? Why do we turn these lights on in the church building so that it might shed light upon everybody who's in that place? Well, this is the church. We are a lot like the lampstand put in the house of God in the Old Testament. Remember, there is a lampstand that was to be put in the inner sanctuary. One of its purposes was to light up that entire sanctuary so that the priest could do their work in the tabernacle and in the temple. So they were to do the work in the house of God in order for them to do that. That lampstand had to be burning day and night. Well, brethren, we're a lot like that. Except we don't serve in one tiny little house of God. We serve in the cosmic house and temple of God. And as that bright, burning lampstand, we are to shine light upon all of those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. So that's our calling illustrated. So Jesus has told us here we are the light of the world. He says that looks like a shining city on a hill. It also looks like a bright lamp in a house. But then in verse 16, he makes a very specific application of these truths to his disciples and to us. He exhorts us in these words in the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven. Just like the shining city set on a hill and just like the bright lamp set on a stand, we, as the Church of the Lord Jesus, must not hide our light. We must not cover up our light. We must not disguise our light, but we must shine our light on all the peoples of the world. Jesus tells us here what the purpose or the end goal of this shining our light is, he says, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven. I think here Jesus tells us the kind of light that we are to shed or shine upon the world. It's the light of our good works, or we could say our beautiful works. People are to see our good works and not just some of them, but they're to see all of them, the good work of confessing the lordship of Christ, the good work of obeying the commandments of Christ, the good work of proclaiming the gospel of Christ, the good work of loving other Christians, the good work of cooperating with other churches, the good work of fighting against our sin, the good work of submitting to those over us in the Lord, the good work of taking care of our families, the good work of helping the poor and the needy, the good work of raising our children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, and the good work of loving and praying for our enemies. The list could go on and on and on about good works, but Jesus does not limit these things or qualify them. He speaks in generalities here about the good work of the church and both proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and living out that faith, that profession before a watching world. The point is we are to show the world the beauty, the honor, the value, the glory of the Christian life by our words and our actions. And this should have a practical effect upon the world. It's not to lead to our praise and glory. It's not so that people would pat us on the back and congratulate us and tell us what good moral people that we are. Of course, the Pharisees did all of these sort of things. They did their good works before the eyes of men so that people would praise them. But we are to have a totally opposite motive. And Jesus tells us what our motive should be here. It's not for us, but it's for God. God's the one who has ordained our good works. God is the one who works these good works in us. Therefore, God is the one to get all the glory for our good works. As one commentator says, we are to shine our light and do good works, not to win praise from men, but to win men to praise and glorify our heavenly Father. Our desire is not glory. Our desire is for that glory to go to God. And the apostle Peter says something very similar in First Peter two, verse 12. He says, Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. So that's our calling explained, our calling illustrated, our calling applied. But I want to touch on four things in this passage that call us to do something with this passage before we end. So first, there is a call to worship in this passage. Jesus calls us here the light of the world, but we have not always been the light of the world. Before the Lord saved us, what were we? Well, we were part of the world. We were part of this dark, evil, depraved, wretched, lost, ignorant world. Our minds were darkened, our eyes were blinded, our hearts were dead to God. We were not just in the darkness, but the Bible says that we were darkness. It was us by nature. We were called darkness. But God had mercy on us. God called us out of the darkness into his marvelous light, and now we are called sons of light, children of light, children of the day who belong to the day, saints in the kingdom of light, light in the Lord, and here the light of the world. So, brethren, we should work hard to win people to praise and honor and glorify our God. But first and foremost, we should praise and honor and glorify our God for calling us out of the darkness into his marvelous light. We should glory in our God for shining the great light of the gospel on us and turning our darkness to light. So there is implicitly here a call for us to worship God, to glorify him ourselves for the work that he has done for us and the calling he has placed upon our lives. So there's a call to worship in this passage. But secondly, there is a call to action in this passage. We are called the light of the world. But that means that we are to be light to the world. We are to let our light shine before others. That's what Jesus tells us, and not as some sort of star in a faraway galaxy that has little to no impact upon this earth. But we are to shine like the blazing sun in all of its glory to give sight, to give life, to give warmth to this cold, dead world. Our Lord and Savior has given us a commission to continue the work that he began in his earthly ministry. And that commission is to carry the gospel torch to the nations, to instruct them in a way of salvation and to model for them a new way of life. So think back to the illustrations that Jesus uses to tell us what we should be doing as the light of the world. But what he is telling us is just as it is inconceivable. That a city built on a hill would be hidden from the public, and just as it is inconceivable that a lamp in a house would be covered up to all in that house. So it is inconceivable that the church would be a secret society closed off to the world. So, brethren, let us constantly and continually remind ourselves of our calling in this world. We are not called to be monks who are shut up in a monastery. We are not called to be scholars who are retired to our studies. We are not called to be introverts who withdraw from the public. We are not called to be spies dressed up in a disguise, but we are called to be the light of the world and to let that light shine. So let us then seek to burn as brightly as we can for as long as we can for the glory of our Savior Jesus Christ and for the eternal good of our fellow man. So there's a call to action. We are the light of the world. That means we are to be light to this world. But third, there is a call to be encouraged in this passage. It's easy to think that we as Christians have little to no positive impact upon this world, especially as we see it getting worse and worse and worse. We can really become pessimistic. Really down in the dumps, really discouraged about our role and our calling in this world, but this passage gives us great encouragement to let our light shine, because Jesus says here that by the way we live our lives, we can actually cause others to give glory to God. We can cause others to give glory to God. Our good works can cause opponents of the gospel to give glory to God by shaming them and shutting their mouths and giving them no reasons to speak evil about the Christian faith. God gets glory for that. They can cause the general masses of people to give glory to God by making them fear God and be of all in all of God for his power at work in us. They can cause other brothers and sisters in Christ to give glory to God by causing them to give thanks to God for our labors of love, and they can cause sinners to give glory to God by leading them to confess with their own mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord and to call upon his name for salvation. So the encouragement is, brethren, your good works matter. Your conduct at home and in the office and at the ball field and in the restaurant and at the park and at family get togethers and at church and on the Lord's day. It matters. It can make a difference. By God's grace, you can have a part in changing the world and leading people to hallow God in their hearts and praise him with their lips. Your good works can beautify this ugly world. Your good works can enlighten this dark world. Your good works can preserve this decaying world. Your good works can add value to this vain world. So please never forget this. Always be encouraged by the words of our savior here to let your light shine before others so that they may glorify our father who is in heaven. But lastly, there is a gospel call in this passage. For anyone here this evening who is still living in the darkness of their sin, there is a gospel ray of hope in this passage that you need to run to. The church is the small L light of the world, but the Lord Jesus Christ is the big L light of the world. Christians can't save you, but what we can do is point you to the one who can. So Jesus is the light of the world and dear sinner, Jesus can rescue you from the darkness and he can bring you into his marvelous light. He is the light of the world who can give you eternal life. He is the son of righteousness who can bring you spiritual healing and joy. He is the day spring from on high who can guide your feet into the way of peace. And he is the bright morning star who can usher in an era of grace and salvation in your life that will last forever. So if you are still in the darkness, if you're still of the world, there is hope for you. Come and believe and follow the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Bible says you will never again walk in darkness because the Lord Jesus will give you the light of life. Amen. Let's pray together. Heavenly Father, help us to consider the words that our Savior has spoken to us to be the light of the world. Give us grace to shine forth pure rays full of holiness and love and kindness to this world that is shrouded in darkness. Please help us to fulfill this calling, this great commission to preach the gospel of Christ, to preach light to the nations and help us, O Lord, to reflect the light and glory of Christ in our very lives. Bless us as a church. Help us to be salt and light. May these callings be ever present in our minds and hearts every day of our lives. Give us grace, we pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Mehdi Hasan: Thank Black Women for Holding Trump Accountable
"All right, I wanted to play this. This is the reason Mehdi Hassan, the moron on MSNBC, left his way into the bronze medal holding position in the dopey media talking at Olympics. He has two appearances on today's show. That's right, too. The first one ridiculously suggesting that school closures are great. School closures is so awesome, man. We need more of those. They're so good because Mehdi Hassan's a moron, a totalitarian. He loves sticking your kids in the house, locking them in the room on a laptop, because that's what totalitarians do. Here's Mehdi Hassan again in another outrageously stupid clip. Judge Chutkin, who happens to a be minority woman, the horrible judge in Washington, D .C., acting like a tyrant, subjecting Donald Trump to things. ridiculous More of them I'll talk about tomorrow to make sure she interferes in the election. Here's Mehdi Hassan. This is what totalitarians do, praising this, suggesting that, yes, look at these minority women getting revenge on Donald Trump, of course, never taking into account that black Americans did quite well under Donald Trump, who made repeated efforts to appeal to black American voters. And we should do that. We shouldn't Andrew to anyone, but liberty and freedom appeal to everyone, and we should make that be known. But here's Mehdi Hassan. He's very proud of the fact that they've weaponized the justice system. And notice how he injects race into it, like it's a revenge and retribution you. You should think that's how crazy this guy is. Check this out. It's never not a good time to thank black women in America services for their to the republic for stepping up again and again to save American democracy through their sacrifices, strength, their their activism, their votes. But this month in particular, we should thank black women for doing what a bunch of white guys have failed to do for years. Hold Donald Trump, hold a former president accountable for his alleged criming. And the fact that
John Kennedy Reacts to the Latest Maddow-Clinton Interview
"Is Rachel Maddow and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's opening last night As they were awaiting the indictment cut number eight please for Senator Kennedy madam secretary fancy meeting you Yeah, this is not the circumstances in which I expected to be talking to you nor me Rachel It's always good to talk to you, but honestly I didn't think that it would be under these circumstances yet another set of indictments This is something this is becoming like a skill set like in the news business you say like oh I've covered Olympics or I've covered a campaign now. It's you know those of us who've covered four indictments So senator Kennedy, what do you make of that tone? on that network Well I Think I think in a way Secretary Clinton's making my point that there's there are some other parts of the interview that I know you didn't have time to show These cases are all going to test the limit of our civil liberties our First Amendment rights our amendments our Right to speak our right to petition our government many of the charges are very nebulous In an excerpt from Secretary Clinton that I don't think we shown she talked about well the indictment is about undermining democracy Well, that's pretty broad term. You know is it if you spread Russian disinformation About a president is that is that undermining democracy? if you contest an election as a president Trump and and Miss Stacey Abrams have is that undermining democracy is it undermining democracy if you if you Intentionally open the border I mean, it's just is it a stretch You're on judiciary is it a stretch for a member of MAGA prosecutor in the county of somewhere Magaville to bring a charge against Secretary Clinton for paying for the Steele dossier and undermining the election and the RICO charge would get everybody involved Well, no, and that's what I mean the glass has been broken This is unprecedented
4th Indictment Shows How Desperate Left Is to Take Down Trump
"All the sights and sounds from yesterday's unbelievably disgraceful banana republic act of desperately trying to stop Trump from making it back to the White House, of all the things I saw, perhaps Rachel Maddow and Hillary Clinton, who couldn't beat Trump in 2016, them cackling Willis's about Fannie indictment of the former president is the one image that really, really, really stuck with me. Here's a little taste of it. Madam Secretary, fancy meeting you here. Oh, I can't believe this. Yeah, this is not the circumstances in which I expected to be talking to you. Nor me, Rachel. It's always good to talk to you, but honestly, I didn't think that it would be under these circumstances yet another set of indictments. This is something this is becoming like a skill set. Like in the news business, you say, like, oh, I've covered Olympics or I've covered a campaign. Now it's, you know, those of us who've covered four indictments. Yeah, real funny. A lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of laughter. Oh, ha ha. Didn't expect this, did I? They're just so delighted. Or are they? Or are they? I want to start, and we'll break this all down for you. Trump indicted out of Fulton County, Georgia, one of the criminal charges, incidentally, I'm not kidding you, was literally Trump urging people to watch TV. I kid you not, part of the criminal conspiracy is when Trump tweeted that his supporters should turn on One America News Network to see the Georgia hearings going on TV. That's a criminal act in the eyes of this rabid partisan hack, Fannie Willis, who decided to throw it all at him, throw it and get as many people, bring as many people down as we can. I want to start with a really important question for you, and I want you to jam my phone lines with your answer. I want to get a bunch of calls in here. I want you to answer this question for me. Don't you think even the people who hate Trump know they've gone too far?
A highlight from Eric and Chris
"Folks, welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever? Wise beyond your years and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms. Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking Eric Metaxas. Hey, Chris. Hello. I'm back. Welcome back. How was your trip? You went around the world in 80 days, I believe. Not exactly. But I am tan, and I wanted that to be the most important thing that I covered. I've been away for about three weeks. And the main thing that I did was work on my tan. And obviously I went to a clinic in Mexico and got hair plugs. And I wanted that to be all healed by now, but it got infected. And so that's why I'm wearing this wig. Yeah, the wig looks great. Whoever. Well, it's the same old wig that I've always worn on this program. But I wanted the I wanted the hair plugs to be ready now, but it just got it was not a good clinic. It was a hair plugs in Mexican. I don't know. I don't know. OK, so I hope I'm joking. I really am tan because I was in Greece. And today today is going to be a tough day. Today is like reentry, you know, like into the Earth's atmosphere because I've been away for quite a while. I needed this vacation. Now, if anybody who gets my email, if you subscribe to my email from Eric Metaxas dot com, I have shared a lot and a lot of photos, a lot of crazy stuff that's happened in the last three weeks, which I want to share on this program. But if you've gotten the emails, you've seen the photos. And that's you know, I think the cliche that a picture is worth a thousand words is kind of true. Like there's there's some fun pictures, but most people who listen to this program don't follow me on Instagram and probably don't get the email. Now, of course, you can get that. It's free. It's no commercials. Just go to Eric Metaxas dot com and we'll send you these emails once or twice a week with these most of the interviews and stuff. But I, I shared a lot of this stuff, but I wanted to share on this program today kind of where I've been for people who don't get my emails or who haven't been following me on Instagram, which, again, I think most people who listen to this as a radio program or podcast follow me in those ways. So the first thing I would add, I would add that this is kind of like, you know, you have a friend, the neighbors who go away on a trip and the cliche is they come back with it used to be on the slides and you would come over and they would show you their vacation photos and you'd be polite, but you really didn't want to sit through so many. But your trip was really actually very interesting. And I think your listeners actually do want to hear what you did. So this is the audio version of that. Oh, you're you're you're exactly. Well, listen, anybody who's read my book, Fish Out of Water. I don't think I say it in the book, but we had neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Right. They passed away many years ago. But I remember they came back from a vacation and they invited the neighborhood kids over. This was like 1973, I think, maybe even 72. But they wanted a vacation. They invited us over to see the slide. So that's what this is going to be like. Now, let me start. Instead of starting at the beginning, I'll start at the end. We flew in from Athens yesterday. And I don't know about you, but like overseas travel, when you get back, it's an 11 hour flight from Athens. We got back, we were totally fried. We were so fried last night that normally you'd want to stay up to a certain hour, but we couldn't do it. So we went to sleep way too early. Like I think I was in REM sleep by six thirty last night. Which means what? Which means I woke up at about two fifteen a .m. today. That's right in time for an early morning breakfast. What do you do at two fifteen a .m.? Well, you try to pretend it's not two fifteen and you try to sleep a little longer, but your body won't go to sleep because you've had your sleep. So what I did is I turned on the TV and Turner Classic Movies is featuring in the middle of the night Czech cinema from the 1960s. So I saw a 1963 film called Something Different, and it actually was amazing. I never thought I'd be talking about Czech cinema. New Wave Cinema from 1963 on this program. But it was actually bizarrely good. And what's the tone of these films? Are they comedies? Are they romances? Action? What is it? This was a film by a woman director. And now, ladies and gentlemen, I am going to talk about my vacation in Greece and London and on the Queen Mary to with Suzanne. I'm going to talk about that in a minute. But I'm just telling you, so last night we went to bed so early that I woke up so early that I know to do with myself, turn on the TV. And I'm watching Czech cinema, 1963. And it was it was really like, you know, when you recognize a film, when you basically say like, I know this is good. Like there were things about the direction of it that I thought this is next level. It was in some ways so bizarre. It was two stories. They kept cutting back and forth between them. And they were not linked. But one was about a gymnast. Am I really talking about this on the program? It was it was I'm all in. I'm intrigued. One was about a real gymnast. I can't think of her name right now, but she was a big deal gymnast. She competed in the Olympics in 56 and 60. And her father was a gymnast. Again, Czechoslovakian. And I got to tell you, they they made an actual film with her. It was a film, wasn't a documentary. So she's playing the role of a gymnast in the film. But it's like very intense and stuff. And then they had this other story of a woman and her husband and their young kid. It was just just bizarrely compelling. And it wasn't meant to be funny, but it was just good. I think my problem is that when you come from Europe to America, you just my body's not here yet. So I think this was the name of the film is called Something Different, which this segment is. And the gymnast was Ava Bosakova. That's correct. He was a gold medalist. Go to the head of the class. So, yeah, but but it's that's half of the story. But it was filmed very interestingly. I mean, filming her routines and stuff, as though it's part of like an actual movie versus a documentary film. Anyway, that's what I did in the middle of the night, because you wake up in the middle of the night. What do you do? I turn on turn to classic movies. And so I've been up for hours. I ran four miles in Central Park. Like basically, I'm ready to go to bed now. And and the show is just starting. So, OK, I want to tell the story of my vacation. We were we spent the last day, 10 or 11 days in Greece.

Josie Glabach Saved Her Daughter From the Trans-Industrial Complex
"To ask about your child, my producer said they were dialog with you in the break that they, that you moved and it saved your child's life, they were going after your child. So talk about how you were able to prevent your kid from being infected with the trans social contagion. Sure. So we were in Massachusetts, which is heavily heavily infiltrated with the trans agenda. And my sweet daughter was told at ten by her friends that she was gay because of how she dressed. She was a tomboy. And she was told she was gay. And so she tried to come out with me at ten years old saying, mom, I think I'm gay. And so as her mother, I actually laughed because she's been writing boys names with hearts around them on the mirrors, and she was 6 years old, so I like my instinct, which is the laugh, and then I looked at her, and I realized she was like, too serious. And I was like, okay, do you have a crush on any girls? And she goes, no. And I'm like, then why do you think you're gay? And she's like, well, my friends told me it's because of how I'm dressing. And she, you know, just kind of like a boy she always wore a backward snapback hat and sweatpants and like a loose fitting shirt and she skateboard and she's excellent at sports. She's terrific. She could be in the Olympics someday. She's so good at them. But she was told very young by friends that how she dressed was because she was gay. And I told her I'm like, all right, well, I know you're not, as your mother. Just your habits, like you weren't, you weren't writing Sally in a heart on the mirror, you know? You were writing boys names. So as your mother will talk about this when you're older, but I don't want you to even worry about it or think about it now. And she said, okay, and then I get a letter from somebody in adult. I'll just say an adult in her life. And they were referring to her as they made them. It took me a little while to read to figure out what they were saying because it sounded like they were talking about a group of people because they would switch from the day then, pronouns, to the she her pronouns, and just them both. And so I actually wrote them back when I figured out what was going on. And I was like, did my daughter tell you to use those pronouns on her? And she goes, no, I didn't want to assume. So there were adult forces that were coming down on her about being non binary. And I'd asked her if this had happened in her school at all and she said it had happened, but she didn't know how to speak out against it. It wasn't a big deal. She just kind of brushed it off. And I was like, all right, well, it's a big deal to me. And there are a lot of issues that have been happening at the same time. Like I said, the pandemic wasn't handled properly by my state. She has my daughter that I'm talking about. She has a one in a million condition where her immune system breaks her bones. And that was being treated in Boston and there were issues going on there where they were trying to force the vaccine on her in this disease. She has this in mRNA and mRNA disease. They were trying to force this vaccine on her at the same time. So it was like coming from us at all different angles. And it just got to the point where we were just like, we got to save our kids. This is not going to stop. It's going to start going for my younger children too. And so, I mean, I was looking at houses in January and we were moved by March of last year. And you moved to Florida. Moved to Florida. Yes. And
Retired Agent Mark Sewell on the Notorious Gold Club Case in Atlanta
"Let's dive into the gold club case here for Jessica. First off, give an overview of that and endless dive in because I'm gonna have some legal questions for you. So we'll dive in as we go here. Sure. Actually, to get a full measure of the go club case, you have to go back to the Olympics. And the owner of the go club leading up to the Olympics was two brothers last named kirkendall, but they got an offer that they couldn't refuse literally with cash money to sell the gold club to a very wealthy businessman, a Jewish businessman out of New York, and that'll become important later. Named Steve Kaplan, and he bought the gold club in 95 leading up to the Olympics in 96 because if nothing else, if he only owned it for during the Olympics, that would be a great investment because you're going to have primarily men in to the tune of tens of thousands flocking into the Olympics. And then where are they going to go at nighttime? These are sports oriented men, young men, and et cetera. So the short term gain was to own a strip club during the Olympics. All types of adult entertainment businesses sprung up during the Olympics and then went out of business as soon as the Olympics was over with. It was make the quick money. And Steve Kaplan's case and the gold club's case, they made their money during the Olympics, and then they kept the train rolling. And used the momentum of the Olympics to build the reputation of the goal club and by the time that our case was over with or by the time we took our case down and made it public, the goal club was the most lucrative strip club in America to the tune of about $8 million a year. Probably 6 million of that was legitimate. If not more, and then a couple million of that was illegitimate ranging from skim tax money to perhaps prostitution money, et cetera, but $8 million a year for one club. And that club was owned by a man named Steve Kaplan as I mentioned, and when he bought the club, that he's from New York. He owns numerous businesses in the New York area. He was a known Gambino associate from the Gambino family, one of the 5 New York families. The New York Gambino squad basically picked up the phone called down to Atlanta and said, hey, we want you to know that one of our guys up here in New York, Steve Kaplan, who's in one of the most powerful crews in the Gambino family, has just bought a business down in Atlanta, and you should be aware of it. And that's the way the FBI exchanges information more or less.

This country is when people pay a third of their salaries salary childcare. And then you can't like the you can't find a job that pays you enough to be able to work to pay for the childcare. I mean i. I've been in that position i remember you know and i had. I put my kids in a co-op daycare so that meant that. I had to work there. One day a week up so i had to clear it with my job but i you know they they just you make it impossible for working moms to do this. And i can't imagine working mom athletes. Oh god you know who are trying to prepare for like the olympics and world championships in all of this stuff getting their body biting their vanni back and and we should be able to support these women so that they have the same opportunities again as their male counterparts in. That sort of stuff doesn't make them have to have to choose sweden's got it down. We should be following indeed indeed and she said a from her was that it's really hard to balance being a mom and a professional athlete and the reality is that there's a certain level of financial support and security. That's necessary to be able to do it. So she has teamed up with her sponsor which is gaps at lita Which is the clothing line and women's sport foundation to give out two hundred thousand dollars in grants to professional mom athletes traveling to competition and the program recently announced the first nine recipients six of whom went to tokyo for the two thousand twenty one games and they each received ten thousand dollars to use towards childcare sommes and i know people like oh my god. That's so expensive that so much money. Let's probably like four months of china. And that's nothing i mean honestly that's four months of childcare. Yeah and you know the tokyo games this year. Were really hard on mom. Yeah because because of the pandemic and all of that travel restrictions restrictions up. They couldn't bring an outside gas although they did make an exception for breastfeeding children but there was a even the stuff with the blind athlete. Yeah that couldn't brit like. How are you expecting people to come. How are you expecting. You know moms of young kids to believe so this is. This is something that i know.

All the things that moms can do. Yes like advocating for their children for what they want. I mean you know. All of these things i saw i feel like i saw a lot of women like women in the olympics time that were really speaking out and speaking their mind about either being mom or you know being winning in this sport or wherever willingly where like we've had it we're gonna find our voice and we're going to speak up because yeah absolutely an that was so clear with track and field star allyson felix who.

Yeah she is unreal and she started speaking out about a her pregnancy and birth areas including how she would train at four thirty. Am while she was five months pregnant to hide her pregnancy from her sponsor at the time. Yeah and the fact that she had to do that. Which by the way let me just say because we were saying women don't work as much and they feel like we have to work through it and people don't recognize it and all that when you're pregnant you're also covered by the ada. Do you know that you're covering by the american disabilities act so that feels like. Why is it considered. It's because you're vulnerable population. Okay that's why because you are and that makes complete sense and so and it's also more than not. It's so that you shouldn't have to hide that you're pregnant. You're you already are employed and that they cannot fire you for being pregnant or getting pregnant or of just having a baby. That's why you're covered under the ada disability. Like if you like it does it right right right. The fact that she still in this age that you felt your height you know. She felt like she had a hide.

"olympics" Discussed on The Most Hated F-Word
"I think i have the unique perspective and privilege of having this additional layer to just how valuable time is but i also like you said it's the curse of always being focused on time and sometimes i use times. Pass you by because you're so focused on one of the things i've done recently so as an example this weekend. We're finishing up the olympics. There's another athlete. Who has just become the third athlete in america to meddle in both the summer and the winter olympics and tons and tons of media requests coming in because they wanted to hear from the most recent person like. What is it like to see that. There's another and you know. Ask me questions all about it and just decided to like this is my first begin home after a long trip and it is the weekend and what will happen if i don't answer any of these questions as it pertains to these articles. Is it worth my time to stop my weekend. And do four different interviews with four different. Ooh publicity and fame and you know what could come of it. But also i need a break. And where's my time spent you know. I think it's best Recovering and recuperating from a long trip in. You know doing normal weekend things so it's easy to say no. Sometimes because i realized the value i've learned the value from participating in sport but i am definitely a victim as i was listening to you. Say the quote of kind of lending my time here and there and just try to stack all these things in. Because i think time is valuable but it's also not a good use of your time trying to fill up your plate as opposed to enjoy time. Maybe not fill up your plate blessing cars. What an interesting perspective. I didn't think of that. About how important time would be for you during your racing days. Yeah thanks for sharing that. I think it's something that we all like to reflect on his time and how we're spending our time and with that..

"Like most israelis don't care. I don't care what was his name thing point and that's the thing that i think needs to be acknowledged anything in some way be does understands the nation really well like he knows exactly who the people who live here are and what they want what they don't wanna and so. I think like doing some way he. He's saying like oh. Come not bennett. I'm not gonna wait a day to graduate olympian athlete. I'm gonna go on about because that's that's remind values standards educated guy story. He's the guy who brags look at seal. I have within three years ago fan but he understands the national history of our people. And so i guess i guess what turns into a shouting match. As often doesn't politics is so unproductive yeah and there is a productive conversation to be had for sure. Oh one hundred percent. I think it's critical and it goes into the larger question of sort of what who are we internally and then who who we want to be extradited to the world sort of what are we becoming and how how should that. Look and look the bottling. This is so interesting because we're at this crazy moment. In history share the olympics are back because the western world had renaissance and the greek culture reasserted itself over the christian culture so now modern western culture is this mix and the whole world is now competing in this christian. Greek mix that recall the western world and because the jews are having our renaissance and delta state. We are now participating in these events. It's it's you everything about this moment. History just knocks you for sure but the one thing i want to mention it. Specifies that we're not we're participating not as not as hidden jews hidden israelis loud and proud. And that's i think that's important to make that distinguish distinct distinguish between is just like that on the stage. What what are we showing the world. And that's that's the difference. In my opinion we always talk. About how complicated. Things aren't this podcast. We're always talking about with simple truth and that's true keep. It is sick of the word. But the truth is when when when when they play tic in an israeli your heartbeat. You're just proud so although it is complicated and this episode was about the complications of the olympics. It's okay sometimes. I feel that patriotic pry. Yeah of hearing a tickle playing on an international stage. We waited long enough for. Oh yeah all right..

There was this whole controversy that she dropped her but tonka she does cool thing with like streamers kind of russia complained and there was this whole anti semitic conspiracy theory about jews. I think that. I mean it would definitely made the news for a couple of days there but i don't think even the olympic judges which i think recounted the points or whatever wasn't there like no she won and that russia needs to just accessors. Its whole other story. Also because russia was kicked out of the olympics officially because much doping athletes don't represent this state of russia's they don't play the national anthem. That's a whole another ju- conspiracy the energy for right now to me. What was interesting. The interesting part of the story was the athletics was that she performed on chabad and bb netanyahu former prime minister who now the head of the opposition called her entre about to congratulate her for her gold medal and publicized that on the internet he filmed it in. You know how politicians will do that. Like look congratulate whether it's an astronaut an athlete or whatever. It is so that everyone knows that this happened so the he is now the leader of the opposition the ultra-orthodox parties and the quote unquote religious. zionist party. condemned him for calling her on chabad as representative of the israeli government. He shouldn't call her chaba and in here again. You have that when it comes to something like the olympics and israel itself you see the tensions in what israel is in that exchange and. I don't think they handled it appropriately. Politely my instinctive reaction was like guys come but on the other hand i do see their issue in other words. Let's say let's say you're israel's ambassador to a foreign country and you don't practice your personally not religious person kosher food and should you request. At the embassy that the food be kosher. Because you're representing the state like allow as representative of the state doesn't function on right..

She competed and so unfortunately she's gone through health issues. And if anyone read the article that i'm talking about they see that she was. She came really close but because she had like a massive pain she ended up just collapsing and not making it to the finish line. She'll try next time but that's just incredible story. We have these sort of competitors. That are really amazing. Athletes and a significant amount of them really aren't jewish but actually in some way very israeli is part of the story of israel as an immigrant country when you have a country of immigrants one of the advantages of your talent pool is coming from all over the world through all sorts of strange complicated and sometimes problematic ways but that israel israel is seventy five percent jews twenty percent arab of five percent other. And so here you have. Some israelis who are in one sense are other in israeli side. Because they're already on the other hand israel sends them out representatives as athletes. Which in the athletic world they have advantages because of where they come from their background that native born israelis may now have so. China has an advantage that they're over a billion people and they pick you from when you're a little kid and train you. We don't have that advantage. Where but we have this this when it comes to the olympics advantage can it's it's complicated and obviously their attentions for these minorities but when it comes to something like this on the international stage. This is something that we where we shine. And even even if you're whatever your position is on the complications of intermarriage and non jews and all that there is something to be proud of. Israel's israelis can shine in the international sphere and these are israelis so it's the cosmopolitan nature of immigrants..

Since we're in such an from fire proximity co-host so you get you got that vote and we're doing it and our topic. This week is sort of the aftermath of the olympics. Now i'm not a super sports guy so we our interest in talking about israel's place in the olympics really are sort of the broader cultural fallout this year's olympics which was israel's biggest representation at the olympics and you were pointing out to me that we doubled our gold medal total justice year like we had to overall in the history of israel. That's right yeah and this year we doubled it and you are also very impressed in particular with the cosmopolitan nature of different types of people in this year's olympics. And what you can you just if you could just tell me those examples that you found so fascinating for sure. Yeah so when we think about israel being in the olympics our minds go automatically to. Oh okay great. So young. Jewish israelis trained and worked a significant amount of their life to get to where they get to. And how wonderful impressive is it that we have these israeli jews who are going to represent a smell and facts and the truth is is that i guess things are a little bit more complicated than that and we see that right some of the people who competed this year so one person that i think everyone knows by now. It's she's a big name and she's the one who won the gold medal for gymnastics. Who's leroy ash. Show him and she she's really she's i guess what we would think that most of the competitors there's really exactly complete concerts sovereign not only that but the i was reading that the the actual type of gymnastics. She does is very sort of ashkenazi. I mean that's probably not the right way to but it's basically not. It's not anything that ferdie girl or go from means rocky background would go and do and pursue also something like interesting that that people were talking about around her impressive competitiveness and her and her the fact that you one which is amazing so there's this classic the typical really that we would be an olympics but then if we look a little bit deeper and actually understand who was there in the olympics. We see that. There's another person. And i are going to go pats. And he is a russian israeli. His mother's not jewish his father is and he also competed for intro. Now there's a lot of people who are in atoms place in israel. Israeli society look russians. Who immigrated to israel and allows them right because his father as a jew. That's it i mean. Even if even one of his his father's grandparents jewish family gets to come in based on the love return. Although we'll get back to this the revenue won't consider him jewish to get married and we'll get to that exactly but again somebody who actually was more or less raisins rose society. But there's this issue of whether he's jewish in terms of israel and the state of israel again. We'll get back to it. But he's he's another one of our winners. obviously also in gymnastics.

"olympics" Discussed on Now & Then
"I represented black america and very proud to be a black man and also to wanna go metal and this i thought i could represent my people by letting them know that I'm proud to black so we just talked about the olympics. We talked about athletes making political statements. We talked about people booing them for doing so and saying they shouldn't have political messages and that they are embarrassing the country which brings us back to the present and simone biles. So here she is. She is having problems with her performance. I thought heard of the twisties before the news coverage of this withdrawal her withdrawal from the olympics. But apparently it's common in. I guess divers gymnasts staff they lose track of where they are in the air and it can be desperately dangerous because if if you've seen footage of byles doing her gymnastic feats she goes amazingly high into the air and could easily fall in among other things break her neck or any number of other things so if you have what people are calling the twisties it's really wise not to perform. That's the decision that she makes and now we're getting the big controversial response to it. Were on the one hand. Some people are saying good for her. She standing up for herself. She knows what's good for herself. She's taking care of herself. She steps back and allows the team to perform well which it might not have if she had been there giving a faulty performance so on the one hand she's being praised and i. I noted on social media that she's actually thanking people for the high praise on the other hand. There's this raging angry attack going on against her in which people are saying. She is cowardly. She didn't do her duty. She embarrassed america. she let down. America basically heaping abuse on her for taking care of herself and taking care of the team. I can feel my blood pressure going up because those are always the armchair warriors this woman who has revolutionized the sport. She's won everything possible. There are four moves named after her. She is absolutely the best. She's unquestionably the best if she wants to lay in a hammock sipping lemonade for the rest of her life. She's still is the best. So when you see. And i'm actually not going to mention their names because i don't want to give them more press but when you see people complaining about her claiming that she is somehow a coward. I'm like okay. Let's see you go out there and do anything like this. All right i'll stop ranting but but the reason that i think this is important for this discussion is because it strikes me as an observer Of history not as a person who cares deeply about the olympics except rowing. And we could do an entire thing on that is that it seems to me that the olympics in the last few decades have become a celebration of a certain kind of american politics. That is the idea of american individualism. The idea of individuals who work their way up by spending all their time sorta hanging out on the slopes and is a very clear political narrative that was embodied for example in the the use for a number of years of american cowboy imagery in the uniforms of the of the american athletes. That idea of american individualism. And what byles does i think. And and the reason. I find this moment so interesting is because she is the best she really has overcome. Extraordinary odds not simply to be sort of the best best sheet brings it all to an entirely new level but her actions don't fit the narrative that you're describing heather well exactly and this i think is why so many as i say. Armchair warriors from a certain political perspective are jumping on this person. And saying you're a coward..

"On. That's what the side that they're on and that's their their goal is just to scare these old white voters out of progressive politics. I totally agree that it's an excellent analysis that does minimize a bit in my view the role of social media and i always think about the story that dan tells about The irs scandal in two thousand thirteen. And when that first happened you know. Everyone at the white house was like okay. It's another fox. Driven thing right fox only reaches a couple million people and so it's probably an inside. Dc fox thing. That's not going to go anywhere and people in most of the country aren't going to give a shit about this. And then we did a bunch of focus groups in ohio and everyone was talking about the irs scandal and the difference was facebook and that there hadn't been facebook or facebook hadn't really taken off in some of these paths scandals. And so i. I think that you know. You can't underestimate enough or you know. You can't minimize the role of social media especially facebook in giving fox just a new weapon To spread all of their lies and bullshit and conspiracy theories and i think fox news based sort of set the tone and they sort of drive a lot of this bullshit but without facebook without social media. i don't think you'd have the reach That you have today. And i think that you wouldn't people angry as you do today. Yeah i do think it is hard some of this. You can look for in data But the i think it's in this piece or maybe it's another peace talks about how everyone just kind of we know. The people in our lives wrangler. We know we see it in our lives. We see it in our families we see in our communities. We see it on television everywhere. How do you find that in the data. How do you. How do you source that point to what caused it. We're not doing a double blind experiment within america. That doesn't have fox news but does have social media. So i do think these things are ultimately hard to tease out. But i do think what. I took away from the piece is. Let's not take our eyes off of the challenge. Fox news is regardless of these other causes one of the greatest threats to this country and its future. It is every single day. And i think. Sometimes it is discouraging. Because we don't know what to do. But i do think. We need to be more explicit in f- in sang it. And do we need to have conversations about the kind of boycotts at work targeted. Boycotts we should look at the moment when fox news changed course and what caused them to change course. Sometimes it's boycott. Sometimes it's other forms of public pressure. I think we need to be more Proactive and more deliberate and more concerted in our attention to the threat fox news began. When you say we. I totally grew this like i think that Like you pointed out tommy. Reporters have gotten better about this mainstream reporters at at at calling fox out and being an confident enough to say that. fox's are propaganda outlet. They never used to be then. It sort of sorry where some of the media reporters would say it. People like brian stelter and stuff like that. And now it's gone to more mainstream reporters. You see some folks on cnn calling them out regularly. so that's good. But i still think like reporter should not treat fox reporters and people who work at fox as their colleagues should not show them like the fox exists to destroy the mainstream media and to undermine trust in the mainstream media and reporters all should recognize this and if and if they do recognize that they should say it publicly. I also think progressive donors right like you know i. I talked to stephanie. Valencia about this In terms of latino vote a couple of episodes ago but she pointed out that story that you know progressive donors. Liberal donors dropped fourteen million dollars in south florida in the last week of the election while republicans bought a radio station in south florida. For three hundred fifty thousand dollars that they turned into a right wing radio station so lot more. Bang for your buck there then just dumping money on digital's ads in the last week of election. One other one other distinction. I think that we should Stop pretending matters is the distinction between their quote news and quote side and their opinions. I'd huge is. He makes that point. It is obscene. It is obscene. If you had a fire department where six of the firefighters put out fires and three of them set fires. You wouldn't be like. I don't think we're giving enough credit to the ones on the truck that are helping you be like. That's a terrible fucking fire department. Shut them down. Shut them down. Don't call them. Drum makes the point in the piece that that's actually one of the big reasons. Fox's so influential because he's a part of the answer probably lies in the fact that fox news is cloaked in the trappings of news. And that's one reason you get sixty five percent of republicans and independents saying that they trust fox news more than any other news outlets right. It's not just tucker and hannity even though are the worst offenders and say the word shit. It's that they see other news that's supposed to be nonpartisan fair and balanced and people fucking by it. No no one knows. We are the only wants he. No there is a distinction. It's a bunch of white guys ties at desks reading news in like there's no like the kyron goes up when you go from news to the opinion side but just challenge you love it. You love it shows. Just get better for three hours. That's right. I mean like i in terms what to do. Yeah i give a lot of credit to groups like sleeping. Giants have gotten advertisers to stop advertising shows. Tucker carlson when he does or says racist things. I i agree that strategic boycotts are good. There's an effort called on fox. My cable box. That is trying to get providers to drop fox news from cable packages. But it's basically just a letter writing campaign and that and that's the broader challenge because fox makes most of its money by charging cable new subscribers. Like all of us whether we watch fox or not so you know. My hope is that long-term that their revenues will be hurt by cord cutting. But i think that my own self interest view here is that progressive need to create our own progressive media. Fight fire with fire doesn't have to be racist lying. Nonsense be a different flavor and tone than fox but like we need to make a counter argument. 'cause i don't think that these right wing outlets going anywhere i in fact i think they are growing proliferating because rightwing donors see them as political weapons to help them you know. Regulations stripped away and tax cuts. and it's an investment for them and it's paid them handsomely overtime. We always want more competition here crooked media where we welcome competition. I guess the no nobody. I do think actually like this points to another imagery that's part of this and actually away in which Like the yawning chasm where we have these super rich people with unlimited funds like influences our politics and other ways republican money supports right wing media and you know who writes really powerfully about that. Never heard of her. The the if you're going to say jamie i've never before jane mayer tommy. It was paying attention but but the but the but the further you get the last like liberal money like the grass roots gets behind someone like bernie but the further you up the money ladder you go. The more moderate become the quote unquote democratic like backers. So like you just don't have the same thing. There is no coke. Brother view talked to talk about Soros as like an exception that proves the rule but they look more like bloomberg you know like looking for a moderate centre-left or even a center option that a symmetry isn't going anywhere. Yeah and they're spending like billions of dollars on like deep polarization efforts. Yeah let's bring more people together at conferences status and that was really anyway so yeah we have to so fox's bad in conclusion fox news is bad. That's why you come here for hot. Takes that. I do they look. It's it's valuable to see a data driven case made like kevin did in that piece. Because i do think. Look a lot of very serious. Very smart good. Reporters would beat their chest in yellow. The obama administration yet when we didn't include fox news in some. You.

"It sort of stopped. Because that's what vaccines too. So you've touched on this a bit about like the contagious of breakthrough cases in vaccinate people. One thing you is that it may take place but it might be shorter because they're in their immune systems are geared up. Actually not something that has been clearly communicated by the cdc. I thought this line from the times coverage of what the cdc has been putting out to be kind of captured to capture the confusion In some of the coverage doctor doctor will linski. The director of the agency acknowledged tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the delta variant kerry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people and may spread it just as readily if less often just as readily if less often What what does that mean i like. Wha wha what does it mean what are what are they saying here. Yeah i i think that's a first of all. I don't think that's consistent with the signs. I don't think will they're their true problems here. One is the values that everybody's super excited about their close cycle threshold values by the way this isn't like a term for how for the test. Anyway the big picture bottom line on the values is cd. Values are not perfectly correlated. with contagious. Nobody cares about cd ballots. We get back. Data's the second is it's a snapshot in time so there is no reason to believe that people are who are have a breakthrough infection and are vaccinated can spread the virus as easily as on vaccine people. I just think that's inconsistent with the data. I don't know if dr wolinsky by the way is super her so she knows this. I don't know if she misspoke bertha was mischaracterized but this has been a consistent theme over the last week this idea that somehow vaccinated people are out there spreading the virus all around and they're fueling the surge they really art. That's not what's going on. Are you concerned at all that israel in the uk and germany have all decided to offer booster shots to the elderly immuno-compromised while our health officials are still debating the issue here like wind should vaccinated americans who are over sixty five or immuno-compromised. Start to worry about veira. Immunity potentially waning. Yeah the data from Israel suggests that after about six months there is a waning of Of the antibodies. Which mainly damore breakthrough infections. And so. i've been worried. And you know where i'll tell you i've been worried. I've been worried about nursing homes and congregate care settings if you think about it. Those were the folks who got vaccinated in december and january so there hidden that six month mark mark. Now yeah and you also know that forty some odd percent of nursing home workers aren't even vaccinated at all so we're going to start seeing in nursing homes and the spa has data on whether a third shot could be helpful. I suspect it is helpful. It'd be really great. If the stephania would make a determination. Do you think that's going to happen soon. Because i guess we're we're like you said we're almost at the six month mark for december january folks. Yeah yeah i it. It should happen soon. I mean there's been a little bit of like i think a lot of us have been Kind of scratching our heads at why. The fda has moved as slowly as it has on so many of these things. Fda received visor data on third. Shot booster you know a while back. And they should make from nation a bunch of other countries have done it and it'd be really helpful for the fda away and it's a bunch of people in l. a. are putting mustaches and getting getting third shots. Illicitly why you think about that. Well this is actually part of the problem. Is that if you if the fda says no we're gonna take our time guess what a bunch of people are gonna go out and do it anyway and the people who are going to go out and do it are better educated high information. Hi sort of social capital and guess who's not gonna do it. The frail elderly in nursing homes the poor people so the best way to create more inequities is to have a government. That's not super responsive agency. That's not super responsive to the data so speaking of scary headlines. Here's a fun from cnn. Over the weekend uk scientists believe it is almost certain a corona virus variant will emerge that beats current vaccines What is your reaction to that. Do you think we'll be able to update our vaccines quickly enough. If if that happens if such a very emergence efforts on deeply skeptical of Ever happening these. Vaccines are really extraordinary. In kind of the breasts of response that they write we have the vaccine's have now been tested against whole set a different bearings and they're holding up largely. Just fine i. I guess it's theoretically possible. I don't lose a lot of people read. But let's say that like it happened because a lot we've had a lotta curve balls in this. So let's say it happens. Yeah we've got Both maternal and spicer bionic that are very capable of turning around a new vaccine within weeks. And then the question for the fda will we will be. How do they test it. Are they going to require kind of long test times or are they going to authorize it pretty quickly. The regulatory stop is going to be much slower but the science on this can keep up with the virus pretty quickly so sort of last question on this over the last week i've seen a bunch of scientists and public health experts quoted as saying that you know herd. Immunity isn't happening. Cova will become endemic will basically have to learn to live with it for years to come. I know that's not actually as scary as it sounds but what is learning to live with cove it as an endemic disease. Look like from a policy in public health perspective. Yeah a great question and are two ways of learning to live with that right is is that do we manage to get pretty high levels of vaccination And then learn to live with it where we have a few occasional Kind of breakthroughs and And some people occasionally get sick but we develop some good antivirals and nobody you know. People generally don't die or get particularly sick and then we kind of go about our lives as an annoyance or do we have a learn to live with it. Where twenty five thirty percent population remains unvaccinated. We seen reasonably large outbreaks still happening among beyond vaccinated Spills over the you know the first version like life basically returns to a new normal things are pretty good. Economy's humming along restaurant syrup fall. People generally not worried right In the second version you have occasionally cities having to put in mass mandates. You have Places having to shut down you have like these kind of countermeasures. Public health countermeasures. We have to constantly being deployed locally in small areas. Hospitals occasionally fill up. We have to respond to that. That china think could go on for years. don't get to like eighty five ninety percent of people vaccinated. Okay well that is a Good warning dr. She's john thank you so much for joining us. We really appreciate you coming us and hopefully everyone else down. That was a great conversation. Really appreciate it. I'm sorry i am sorry. I cursed in your presence very serious person. I lowered the whole. you know. i wish. I thank you guys so much for having me on was pleasure positive.

"That we're going to beat that we're gonna move you out of the district And i and i do think actually even though it is absolutely true. We've seen this in in In remember pennsylvania to georgia you can organize and educate voters to overcome these things and there are knock on investment. Help when you tell people their vote is threatened you can sometimes instill people Kind of real pressure in and desire to get out there and overcome these hurdles that said it is a frustrating message. I agree tommy that it is about just sort of signaling like we think this fight may be really really hard if not impossible and if we lose it we still want to make sure people understand that we can win in the midterms but it does take the pressure off of congress to say that we can overcome these things with organization when the message needs to be. This is dire. This is an emergency. We need to act. We need to act right now yet. We don't want anyone to give up. Hope we're going to stay involved in fighting this. But like dave wasserman from the cook. Political report drew up. A hypothetical map of wouldn't gerrymander in texas. Could look like and you could end up with republicans having twenty five seats compared to thirteen seats for democrats even though biden losses state by only five points. So that is how much you can distort. What estate actually looks like when it comes to its partisan breakdown compared to its congressional representation and that's why it could be a disaster one of the thing. I just ad about this Democrats even if we controlled all state legislatures and can draw all maps because democrats tend to live in more democratic districts than republicans live in republican districts. It's actually harder for democrats to gerrymander to the extent that republicans can do it because democrats live in these concentrated areas in a way that republicans don't even these rural districts in which republicans kinda draw these maps to give themselves an advantage. There are more democrats there than there are in the heart of say like nancy pelosi district or adam shifts district rayo district or any of a number of very concentrated democratic districts. There is at one last thing on this. There is a timing issue here to the census releases the data that allows states to draw the maps on august sixteenth. So the it's coming fast. But even if congress passes a law banning gerrymandering sort of after the the the census data is released in. Some maps are drawn. It's the band. Would still sort of put the legal challenges to this on. Firmer ground you john. Roberts wrote himself in an opinion where he said. Gerrymandering was okay He's at the framers. Gave congress the power to do something about partisan gerrymandering in the elections clause sir. John roberts themselves basically tempting congress. Like it's on you. You wanna pass something. It'll be fine but if you don't pass anything we're not going to uphold any challenges to gerrymander. Any also gave aren't racially graham. Well that's the thing he also gave republicans in instruction manual for how do get racist gerrymanders through by leaving the the part in which they are trying to sort by race out of the conversation and making it partisan because that according to john roberts is protected Tell me i wanna get your thoughts on this trump story which once again falls into the category of shocking but not surprising So a bump at the washington post did point out that. What's new about. The story is the note suggesting that trump and congressional republicans may have been coordinating their efforts to overturn the election. what should we especially congress. Do with that information. I am very upset by the story. I found it not surprising but shocking as you say i wanna spend a minute talking about trump telling the attorney general that he may not be following the internet. The way i do and therefore didn't understand the stolen from him. This seems important to harp on because it does speak to where he's getting his information and how you know. I think it was one week ago or two weeks ago. We talked about the conspiracy theory that somehow the estate italians had stolen the election or someone in the us embassy in rome. it's only election. That's literally what he's talking about and it's he's not saying these things before you know. A crowd of aryan youths led by charlie kirk. He saying this stuff to the attorney. General of the united states that he appointed. And that's scary. I think the bigger question is why wasn't he. Following the internet is closely as trump. I mean if you know if you want to be good at your job you should know what your which your boss is up to and reading you know. Compensation got to read the whole internet. Dowden love it. What do we do about this what we do. That's i would say two things. One i know no but it is amazing. How close we were to all coming apart. We are very very lucky. We are very lucky that even after bar was gone and and trump tried to find someone who was more loyal to him in this job. There were these places where there was resistance where there did not have to be did not have to be resistance in. The georgia secretary of state's officer did not have to be resistance in a political In terms of political decision making a doj. The other piece of this is we need to get to the bottom of what kind of conversations trump was having with members of congress like brooks like jim jordan like kevin mccarthy that needs to be part of the investigation That the committee is running right now. They need to treat those members as what they are which is Some combination of witnesses and perpetrators. Yeah there's a. There's a cnn piece. Over the weekend. Where there was some question about whether they would be calling members of congress as witnesses potentially subpoenaing or or how they might get that information from them or that testimony rather I hope there's no question about whether someone like jim. Jordan will be called to testify mean. Did you see this fumbling interview. He did with some local journalists from ohio where he was asked if he talked to trump on january six. It's clear that guys hiding something. He definitely talked to him. Yeah it's been a couple interviews like this where he's like You talked to the president all the time. Jim jordan always very careful with his. You know it's like these guys. These guys only sand the edges off in moments like these when they're worried about what could happen if they're under oath. You're absolutely right that this is why it's the one six commission can't just be about the attack itself. It's about everything that led up to the attack including trump's efforts all along the way from the day after the election through the insurrection. To overturn the election itself and the members of congress who coordinate with them. And i also think i was glad to see that democrats make this new push for like a revised voting rights legislation. That they're going to include language to prevent election subversion. I think that language really needs to be quite strong. I mean there's a question of how much can you do about states trying to subvert the election republican officials in states on the federal level. They i think they need to amend the electoral act of eighteen. Eighty seven so that you need like two thirds of both houses of congress to send the electors back to the states that way if it's two third that's less likely to be partisan in nature like this idea that now whoever controls congress can reject the president whichever party controls congress can just reject. The results of a presidential. Election is fucking absurd. Yeah and it should never have been a law. The ivy there was this. There's this question. When trump said to rosen. Leave it up to me. And the congressman. What did he mean right. How concrete were the conversations. He had with members of congress. And i think that's really really important. Except that in the end he d. I wanna know how much communication was. I wanted to know how much coordination there was. But i think one of the lessons of january six is even if there was none they coordinated on television. They coordinated on twitter on the internet on the internet's trump's internet and they and they knew what they had to do. They didn't need the the same. The members of congress needed the same amount of instruction as the people on the national mall. They knew what trump wanted them to do. And that's all that really mattered and so Like the fact that he was in conversation with them is important but ultimately what we are watching is a threat that if basically what we know that if republicans have both houses of congress the The ability to actually have a presidential election is completely Let's talk about the path forward on protecting voting rates and democracy on sunday. Joe mansion told. Jake tapper that while he's optimistic about coming up with a compromise on voting rights he still doesn't support a filibuster..
