Charlie Pushes Back Against Critiques of His Uvalde Response
"Irresponsible, incompetent and objectively foolish, as in the absence of wisdom, diatribe today about law enforcement delaying entry into uvalde school is no better than Obama's reaction in the area idiocy when he was president. By the way, we have tons of these. When I did this, do not throw away the credibility you've built, wait and get the facts. We did actually wait till we had the facts. Unfortunately, the facts were the additional facts on top of what we already knew was even worse. Than we could have possibly imagined. Now, I want to be very clear. Our position here at its core is very conservative. And these terms were pro Second Amendment, and we want people to be self sufficient, and we want people to be able to protect to protect their families. We're very pro police, we're pro rule of law, and you know what really bothers me. We got one email here, freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Where he said, listen, Charlie, I am a skilled tactical officer, a veteran, he said, I would never allow children to perish on my watch. 77 minutes. When something like that happened. And that's what bothers me is that this gives a bad name to the other heroes. That do daily amazing work. But it does beg the question that is worthy of explanation. About what was the psychological conditions that created this. Now, I believe, and
Charlie Continues the Conversation Around Psychiatric Drugs
"We struck a chord yesterday. And totally non coordinated. Tucker Carlson said very similar to what we did yesterday, which is we need a nationwide moratorium or just a pause on what the heck is going on on the over prescription of psychiatric drugs to children. For an 8, 9 and ten year old, do they really need to be on Ritalin? Do they really need to be on zoloft? They really need to be on benzodiazepines. A 9 year old that says they're depressed, really? And what are the long-term neurological effects and impact in damages that could potentially be done? And we got an overwhelming amount of emails from you. Freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Again, and I just want to reiterate this point. And no one emailed us, not one person that struck this that got that received this sentiment, I'm not accusing anybody or making you feel bad or attacking you if you're on these drugs. It very well might be working for you. Okay, I'm asking about children, neurological development, and the over prescription, and the misdiagnosis problem. That's what I'm arguing. And how children who we know grow out of whatever issues they're having at that particular age, why would we would push these interventions that have black box warnings on them, by the way?

There's also concern about the spread of the delta variance in China, and we know the reaction function that that then could prompt from Chinese authorities. So there's concern about growth in China.

So i think it'd be a good so we'll have a little chat amongst the production team. But i do think that we will definitely be doing that. Obviously on wisecracking video about bo burnham in the past that i had a hand in producing. So if you haven't seen that go check that out.

How to Get Their Best Email
"Just having a wonderful conversation with my favorite personal trainer. Mia finn again. If you're listening via i love you. And she's got some great online programs bunch different offerings. You guys should check it out. I will put linked to her in our show notes because she is the inspiration behind. Today's she was saying you know. I have myself different emails. I have one email. That i use. When i just want the freebie and then i have the email that i used so that i make sure you don't miss something that we need to see or want to see and she just kind of asking like does everyone do that and i think the answer is yes the answer. Yes for you. I know the answer is yes for me in fact. I've got three different phony emails. That i use one that i opt into. I just wanna see. Swipe copy one that i opted into so that my staff doesn't have to weed through my online orders. Okay fine. it's because i'm embarrassed. About how much online shopping i do. And then my email address it. I use that i make sure i see everything or somebody on my staff is gonna see everything. Comes that inbox all right. The question is as an entrepreneur s. Who is building their email lists. How do you get daddy. Email the one that people actually check because think about it. if you don't if you're getting the spam email your follow up sequence is never getting to them your irresistible offer is never getting to them. You're like hey we haven't seen in a while. Here's a special discount. None of that is getting to them. None of it. So it's a one and done so couple things to remember. The first is this. You've got one chance to tell them that. You actually have a solution to their problem and that is why not electronic. Toot our own horn. I'm sure somebody else inspired me to do this. But we've been really bold about the concept of putting your offer in your very first email not shoving it down people's throat so if you opted into let's say for example are freemium for trying to figure out what you're saying is or a freemium for instant club hub like you want to learn how to do the swipe up whatever that very first female is going to give you what it is you ask for here.

When It Comes To Email, Some Prisoners Say Attorney-Client Privilege Has Been Erased
"Bureau of Prisons offers email to the 150,000 people locked up in the system. But defense attorneys say there's a big catch two Mana Moussa works at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. The whole system is completely coercive because there's only one email system that you can possibly use, and if you want to use it, you have to find the waiver. That waiver allows authorities to monitor messages even between clients and their lawyers, Mostow says there's a way for the prisons to filter out those attorney client emails. But it's not clear how often the Justice Department actually does that defendants only find out if those messages get used against them in court that
How to Optimize Workspace Organization and Gain Productivity with Kathi Burns
"Don't think anyone would deny that having an organized work space helps their productivity and decrease stress. Especially when you have a lot going on it's nice to be able to just put your finger on it bingo but in your experience why is it so hard to get organized and then stay organized if it's so obvious. Why don't we want more of us do it. Well i think that oftentimes we have too much muck spe- Thank you for the good for my title by the way You know everybody has muck and sometimes when you have too much of it. You can't even see your make clear to knowing where to begin. And that's the main thing that i find with clients says they don't know where to start. They know they need to be productive. They need they know they need to put systems together but they're looking around themselves and they're going. Oh no idea where to even begin knowing where to start. I think is step one. Well that's great. So where is step one. Where do you start. You know. I can just see. There's piles of papers or stuff and if someone likes like you and i'm not necessarily picking on you but if someone comes in with with all good intentions to help get organized says well. What about this. And you're like no. I like that pile just where it is. I mean how you overcome that. Well you know. We i always start with the in goal. You know why. Why does the client want to work with me. Why did they feel the need to call the begin with what is it. That is their biggest pain point and once. I know that i can begin. To kind of edgy. around The service of their desk or the emails in their inbox. I kinda see your up. What's the biggest pain point and we start there so you know a great place to start no matter what is to clear off your desk because a messy desk. You can't tell what's going on and you become overwhelmed just even sitting down at your desk My rule of thumb is that sixty percent of your desk surface open for business. So i always say if you had sixty percent free and clear you'll have the ability to think more clearly about what you need to do for that day so i always start on the surface and some people are very married to their piles you know. I will admit that some people like don't judge that pile cycle. Let's at least move it a little bit away From the surface. Perhaps we you know. Start start slow and do a side table with paper pile in these accurately that they are used to having them but at least having the death. Surface open for businesses is step one always well. That's really interesting because instead of sixty percent clear i have to admit i'm guilty of maybe six percent missing zero there but you. You mentioned something there a second ago. I'd like to follow up on e mail. Inboxes they have a way. Exploding and in a very unstructured way. A what systems can we put in place with respect to electronic documents including our email. What do you. What advice do you have on that. Yeah i'll talk about systems in a minute. But what i wanted to remind me if i forget but sometimes i go up but what you have to realize number one is it your email any email you receive is something that wants you to do something so if you go into your inbox you're going into reaction mode. You are not going into proactive mode. You're going in to see who wants to do. What do they want you to respond to. They want you to quickly. They want you to forward. What are they want. Do you whatever so you have to realize for starters at any time you hit your inbox. There's gonna be a bunch of people screaming at you to do something and take some type of action. So for starters is always good to only check your inbox. A couple of times a day at predetermined times and actually you know. Upn beginnings actually set a timer. And don't stay in any longer than thirty forty five minutes at the most because what happens is if you you will get absorbed. You'll get sucked right into your in box and you'll be out in la la land clicking on links trying to project that wasn't even on your dinner for the day to make someone happy or so on and so forth so the number one system is to figure out when you're going to check your inbox and stick to it. You know. maybe you're gonna check. Your inbox is always say good. Thing is right before lunch. And right before you finish the day right before lunch because you know you wanna eat and you don't wanna eat at your inbox so you'll be a little bit better prompted to get out of there and right before the end of the day because you're over your over work and even though we're all working from home you know setting up specific. Starting in times of your day is really critical and break time. Who's well you know. Eating at your desk is is not necessarily good. And i know that a lot of us set hours and not eating doubts is really super important getting up and moving as well so so have a set time. You're going to check your inbox if you have to have a timer. I always say start with a timer. Start with a thirty minute timer. There's gonna being you in the airball until you to get out of your inbox So those are two really important things to do as far as systems. But i think really the most important thing is realizing that when you get in there it's reacted. You're not doing anything for yourself. Necessarily you're going to be called the do actions for other people that want you to do something for them. Does that make sense. Oh yeah that makes a lotta sense and you know. It's amazing how rude people can be in terms of call to action. I actually got one email yesterday where somebody said. Have you looked at this attachment yet. It's like hello you just sent it to me. Let me just drop everything now. You want me to look at your attachment and it was a pitch so it was It was a bit. Yeah yeah so that that got that got filed but let's talk about filing and organizing our emails because they come in such an unstructured way and like you said it's one thing how much time we devote to them. Which is some great advice you know. Let's limit it and let's not just in terms of the amount of time but when we commit the time so that it doesn't break our workflow as much so that's really good but we don't always just answer an email and then delete it a lotta times. We keep them and that box just kind of blows up after a while even the emails. We've read right so whether it's an email or another type of electronic document which email is what are some good ways to organize well when it comes to email. I recommend that all of my clients read their emails within g mail. On the big genome proponent. There's a bunch of reasons for those. And i have you know you can have all your email. Address is going into your dms account so you can have your web addresses or whatever but what that does is g mail automatically organizes for you and so it puts it into four different buckets. You know whether it could be Can't remember the name was like you know the your inbox. there's updates there's offers so on and so forth so it will automatically do that for you. So that helps. Because actually when i go into my g mail Go right into The number one thing which is my inbox. And see what's going on. And then i will go into Dates and i can literally skin them. Pick them all up ping them all and then Delete 'em
Changing Your Look After Coming Out
"Had heard from a listener. Who had come out in her thirties and was kind of wondering how she should change her style. Yes and also kind of dealing with friends feedback in changing of her style and we received such an amazing advice and thoughts from other listeners. That we wanted to share. We really did so. Here's our first email that were sharing today. I just finished mini episode one seventy eight and as a queer teenager. I felt that. I could provide some input here for the listener about their gay style. This year as come out as pan sexual unexplored my own style more. This is something i think about a lot. Recently i've changed so much of my wardrobe and found new things that make me comfortable in my look and my sexuality. What i've learned is that there are so many ways to be gay. You can really take any style and tweak it to express your identity and it doesn't have to be blatant for example. I've always had a darker edgier look and i've started wearing flannels with my goth. Clothes and makeup beans are also a nice touch that make everything a little bit gayer but not to gay also little rainbows are such an amazing and cute way to show your pride if none of these stereotypically gay items of clothing fit your taste. I have many friends who just like to dress and the colors that they feel express them instead of focusing on the items of clothing themselves. There's really no correct way to be queer and you can really and you really can make any item of clothing as as you want. True allies will support you no matter what you wear and no one should ever be pressured to dress in a way that they are uncomfortable with. Hopefully some of these suggestions help. Ps as a gen z. Are i must admit that. Cates use of the word ziesel her makes me cringe but of course i always appreciate the words. You guys make up as for trends. I think there's so much more acceptance of individuality in today's teens at the ones i know so whatever is considered popular online is really only. What a specific specific group of people are wearing regular life though. The controversy is always interesting and often hilarious to see Thank you teen listener. I loved us soak we. This was so such a great email to receive. I'm so honored. That teens are listening to this podcast. Oh the teens are so great. I think the teens are really great. Which terrifies me. Because i've always thought the teens were bad. Especially when i was a teen but i kinda think. Today's teens are awesome. Yeah i know it's really interesting. Yeah all right. You want to share this email diary. I would love to hike kantor. I wanted to write in response to the listener searching for her style. Post coming out coming out in my late twenty s i was so torn between looking to gay or two straight wanting to feel like my full self but also not wanting to seem like the stereotype who comes out and changes everything. It was helpful for me to consider. What stereotypically feminine elements of my style. Had i embraced. Because i truly like them. For example always having my nails done and other things had. I rejected. Because i was worried. Someone could suspect. I wasn't straight noticing what i had an impulse to like but held back from was usually an alert to that internalized homophobia rearing. Its head and usually was silly. I not buying fund metallic birkenstocks or not wanting to follow brandi carlile on instagram. I'm sorry to laugh. I'm laughing. Because i love brandi carlile and i. I love italian stocks. I did not realize that. Brandi carlile was Something that would lead someone to suspect that you weren't straight okay. So just like how. I tell the diet culture voice to get lost. So do i. Now try to tell the hetero normative voice in my head to shut up. Let me live when i find myself holding back from buying doing wearing listening liking something a helpful. A help fought narrative. Reframe for me. Was that many queer people have common interests were style just like many californians or new englanders or chefs have common interests or style. And none of those people aren't buying or wearing or doing something because it's to california or new england or sheffi so like what you like and if it gives people a clue that you're not straight so what it's not a secret and now you have a life more filled with things that feel good and bring you joy to boot as for the listeners. Friends my favorite way to kill those comments is a deadpan. That's weird or rude thing to say not creative that universally applicable
Crafting a Conversion Series So You Can Sell with Email
"Lot of the time in digital marketer. The things that we do aren't because we're incredibly intentional. They're out of necessity or we have a strategy that we can't fulfill on because of technology because of some other barriers. So we have to do something else and we do something else. And everyone gives us the benefit of the doubt and the credit that we had this brilliant epiphany from go and we're so put together but it's always fun at least for me to look back at how we have an asset or a process. Now that was created out of oops ryan and perry forgot to write and send emails one day probably about eight years ago. So that's why we're we're looking these templates now and that's why we were able to temple ties them and use them for all of our businesses and and what. I hope you'll to do is walk. You guys through some of the core templates and the conversion series That you can use to deploy in your business and truly built an automated follow up campaign for your business so back to the agenda. We're gonna move onto crafting your conversion series so a couple of wrap up points here. Remember the conversion series for new subscribers is going to be triggered simultaneously with the indoctrination series brand new people when they've opted in. They're going to get their your indoctrination series. But they're also going to go into conversion campaign right because going back to the question that ryan asked in the very beginning of this workshop or or at least the question that he posed in the very beginning of this workshop. You have a subscriber now. What what are you gonna do with the subscriber once you have them going back to the five phases of the follow up machine living here in the conversion phase and green is good red is bad and yellow. Is hoping that we're back on track. So we're right here. New subscriber or old subscriber news going to get the indoctrination campaign and the conversion campaign. Old is not going to get this. They are going to go into a conversion campaign because looking at this and thinking of this As it pertains to the customer value journey once someone subscribed the next most important thing for us to do is to get them convert to convert right. Something magical happens when you when you take someone from being just a subscriber just a prospect to a customer pain customer win when money or time exchanges hands when they give you money or they'll give you their time. They they change in the way that they look at you. They listen to you differently. And when you have a successful transaction they're willing to ascend so going back and thinking in here. After conversion we're focused on ascension that first conversion isn't necessary because we need to move them along from a us a low dollar or a entry point offer to a higher priced. it allows them to trust us with a successful transaction so making sure that our email campaigns and email series are are moving people efficiently through those processes. It's kind of what we're gonna be talking about here again to answer the question that ryan posed in the very beginning of this workshop. The the answers to move them quickly through the convert face as seamlessly as possible by deploying a conversion series. So let's talk just a little bit about conversion series so a conversion series is an interest based triggered campaign sent following a specific action or requests. Remember ryan talked about two types of email sends there's triggered and broadcast definitely the conversion campaign. At least an automated sense because we're building automated follow up campaign is triggered so in someone's requested a specific resource whether it's a lead magnet or whether they've subscribed for awebber opt in for a webinar. That's an interest based triggered campaign that sent immediately. Alright the job of the conversion series is to turn subscribers in the converts twice called the conversion series emails and a conversion series should referenced the previous positive reaction. This is big right. Think about if you just met someone and that personnel ryan talked about a lot about the from like your from information right the first email you send. You should not expect them to recognize you. Even if an amazing job at personal branding or branding your company they are not gonna see that email and remember who the heck you are. You haven't earned that yet. You haven't become important to them especially if they're new subscriber so if you're not tying back to that positive that previous positive action that they took they have no idea why you're emailing them and what the heck you're talking about and we are all really really busy. I bet you. I opted in for five things yesterday that i have. I don't even remember doing right. And i bet you that three of them tomorrow will email me. And i'll unsubscribe from them. Because i won't know what the heck they're talking about. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt that i opt into a lot of things. I don't believe they're spamming me. But i do believe really terrible job at reminding me why in the world they have the right to email me and why should care the way that you overcome that is referenced. The previous positive action and then prescribe the next logical. Step i if we know thinking back to the previous slide if it's interest based we know what they're interested in at least right now that may not be the only thing they're interested in but it is the thing that they were interested enough in to give you their contact information. So that's what they're interested in and you've said something on a page that talk them into giving you their contact information so you now know what they're interested in now remind them the last thing that they did your last interaction and then tell them what they need to do. Next so successful. Conversion emails will overcome or inoculate against known objections and common
Newsletters vs Email Sequences: Which One Is Best for Your Business?
"Newsletters versus email sequences. That what we're gonna to talk about today which one is best for your business for your audience for the people on your email list. I list the find them. A newsletter is a email you send on a regular basis to your customers to anybody on your email list that could be a customer. Non customer potential customer leads and the main differences that you're actually triggering this email. You're writing it in advance and maybe scheduling it to go at a certain time or certain day every week or every two weeks every month so in whatever will use to send emails those mailchimp verkada active campaign. You're writing up this newsletter. Maybe a week or two in advance scheduling it to go out to the recipients so they can read. What's new in your company. What's happening early blog post. You need latest video or podcast episode. It's some sort of value. You wanna give your customer. An email sequence is different because it's not one email that goes out to everybody at a particular time or the same time so the newsletter. You're sending every monday for example to everybody on your list but with an email sequence as soon as somebody joins your list they get an automation sequence of email so they might get one email as soon as they join your email us. Welcome them then day. Later they'll get an email with your latest blog posts and these are pre written emails that get sent automatically in a certain sequence that you create in advance and these sequences can go on for as long as you like for as many emails as you want. Some people call this a chateau newsletter. I heard this from brennan done. Who writes a lot of courses creates a lot of courses would comes to email marketing. We had brennan on as a guest teacher back on episode sixty five around six years ago. You hit subscribing. Find it in our archives if you'd like it's called the newsletter because from the recipient's end from your potential customers and it's just an email newsletter is both from your end. It's all prescheduled all automated. So which one is better while. I'm here to tell you that they both have value. And it's all depends on what you're trying to achieve and i have my own thoughts on this. I think that traditional newsletters have their place. They advantage of newsletters. It's fresh content fresh information that you just wrote recently a week or two ago max so you might be covering recent topics current events. You might be curious articles that have come up in your feeder that you've seen that are recent or relevant with a newsletter shatter newsletter Things can get old really quickly because if you wrote the sequence six months ago those emails are not as timely as they are now in terms of the content of the actual information. You're sharing so what i recommend. Is you do send a newsletter. But i think the timeliness of what's going on what's the latest and greatest actually pertains or is actually more important for your actual customers. Setting regular newsletter customers actually makes more sense because you want to retain them you want to keep them happy and you want to give them value also an update on what's going on with your products or services your company and that information needs to be timely but they were trying to nurture an audience to become a customer like the emails you send to potential customers on malysz that necessarily doesn't need to be a newsletter it can be what's called the shadow newsletter or an email sequence. And will you focus on is things that are not really a time bound so when it comes to these email sequences include content. That is timeless. Like your most popular blockposts. Another email could be your backstory. High started the company. And why you do what you do. Another e mail in the sequence could be how some of your customers are getting the most out of your products and services that you sell some success stories things that will get them over the line from being a non customer to accustom because really. That's your goal with that email list of people that are not customers yet
New Email Notification - Now Available in Canada on Alexa
"Want to give a big shoutout to paul goodman. Paul just sent me an email and he told me about a feature that i did not know was available in canada but there is a catch so i want to explain the featured. You as paul explained it to me. And then i'll tell you about the catch. The here's the feature you can actually say to lexi. Tell me when. I get a new email from vilna bike and then lexi will actually light up and announce when a new email comes from that person But it only does it for the first email. Now if you say lexi tell me. Every time i get a new email from mike bennett worked for multiple emails. Here's the catch. The catch is there is no easy way to turn this off. So when you give this command to lexi she says you you can check the settings in the reminder section of the lexi app now when i go there. I don't see anything about that. So the catch of course is that. I don't know if you can turn this offer. So my personal perspective is i would probably say there's important email you're coming in than us that command specifically saying lexi tell me when i get a new email but maybe don't say lexi tell me every time i get an email or i'm not sure how you would turn that off anyway. That's very interesting and so paul. Thanks for bringing that to our attention. Officially this feature is only supposed to be in the united states that this may be a little loophole. That paul discovered so. I hope that is helpful for you And let me know. Let me know if you're using that. Okay thanks a lot paul for that. Really appreciate that

"All right, our first email, we're gonna dive right into this on the email stationery. It is. Peter started getting his Peter, who listens up in Cape Cod. Thank you very much. He's asking since the Corona virus vaccine should be widely distributed by next summer. My wife and I and another couple are looking at booking a tour. You have any recommendations for cos you like Would you recommend traveling domestic or maybe Canada? First, we're going international. And do you prefer booking with a big tour operator? Or would you say small operators are OK? It's a lot to unpack there, Peter for sure as travel returns I personally would work with the larger tour operators, all right. They have greater resource is staffing and relationships to ensure your safety. Their clout will enable them to guarantee certain operational demands that are met. And they should also be better equipped to help you. And I think this is gonna be important with alternative options should it become necessary. There are many good small operators out there, Peter, I am not knocking them. If Mary and I were taking a tour or we're including members of our family. I would put our money on that large tour operator over the next year or so. That's just us. However, Terry Dale from the U. S Tour Operators Association. He's been on the program with us in the past. Had encouraged to check out their website ust away dot com If any operator you're considering isn't part of U. S. T a way they list him on. It comes with a $1 Million Travel Assistants Guarantee program. Find one who does. Okay, Mary? Yeah, I don't have a lot to add to that I would say regarding domestic or international travel. That's gonna depend along a lot of factors next year. It's gonna depend on vaccine distribution in foreign countries Borders re opening guidelines in foreign countries. Still a lot of things to look out for in 2021. So make sure whatever you do book has flexible cancelation for you. Um, I would agree with everything you just said, And I would also just advise you 2021 is probably the year to use travel advisor. They have relationships with large tour Gillespie away will help correct and small tour groups. So use a travel advisor next year. All right. Our next email is from Colleen, who listens to us in the Bakersfield area and she's asking. I work for a company whose requiring us to use all over 2020 vacation time or lose it. So my husband and I are thinking of going to Vegas for Christmas. Since our family is spread out in other states, Do you think we need to tell her employers about the trip? I won't have enough days left to quarantine once we get back, and I'm afraid they might not let us work. Call him We truly thank you and everyone who listens to this show for tuning in week after week and being part of our world travel get together. Mary and I. We're not gonna actually touch this subject. Not gonna have any questions. I could understand why you asked, I guess to a degree, but the fact that you had to take the time to send it to us. I think you already know the answer. But if anyone out there wants to know where to go to Hawaii, we could help you with that We could all right. Ask us those questions. All right. Next question's gonna get right to Sylvia, who listens in Detroit. She's asking You think once the pandemic has passed will travel as we know it be back aural Virtual vacations and travel be here for good. Mary. Well, I absolutely think travel will be back. I think it's gonna look a little different for a while. I think that maybe some of these successful virtual programs may be used to sort of entice you for an example would be museums. To kind of go back and actually visit in person. But there's nothing like visiting in person and experience the human connection. So we have to be a little patient. It might look a little different for a while, but I absolutely believe travel will be wait. Say it all The time. We believe travelers and Ordina how many times we said that in the program over the years? I mean, certainly travel for some is going to back with more slowly than others, you know, So from that standpoint, I guess I can see the virtual opportunity sticking around. But they were here pre pandemic anyway. They absolutely were particularly for people who aren't able to travel so, but I think the allure of travelers, you said, and the need to travel certainly the case of business. We haven't talked about that It's gonna be too great as so they will return strong were pretty common. We're hearing of and we feel it to the pent up demand to get back out with the world. All right, that is going to put a lid on the email station for today. Mary Wright said that three times Now we're gonna keep it going through the brake Quick, Thank you again to Peter and Sylvia and Colleen.

"Well, they doubt me because I've taught them well, I've explained to them. The aphrodisiac of power is in Washington and They're substituting themselves, man. I'd love to pick the president. Screw this election business. Let me explain, By the way. Welcome back Rush Limbaugh, Fastest three hours and media. We're already starting the third one here, 800 to 822882. Look, um I can understand how a lot of people would be puzzled. That statement that the Supreme Court doesn't want this gig. They don't want to pick the president. I mean, Those exact words, by the way. If what they do Is seen as picking the president. They want no part of it, and they won't take the case. I'm just telling you And the caller that got all this started. Knows full well. That's why, he said that the evidence that is presented to them is going to have to be overwhelming. So Sidney Powell and Lin Wood and Trump's team Are going to have to focus. On the software. Smartmatic, part of Dominion software. They're gonna have it. You know, Sydney says that they've got more evidence is coming so fast has come to a fire hose. They better have that and that's what they better present. Does the court All right. Yeah. One letter one email. Are you telling me that these live justices do wouldn't wanna pick Biden as soon as they could? Yeah, they might. I know what? You're know what you're talking about there, but In that in that circumstance. But the issue here is the court being sensitive to Separation of powers and the Constitution, delegating Responsibility in case of disputes to the House of Representatives in picking the president, but that's a vote. Of a whole bunch of people. Let me let me just cut to the chase here. And this is independent of what happened in Bush versus Gore. But even when all they did, there will stop the count. All they did. They ordered the recounts stopped because there was fraud happening in the recount. They stopped the count. And at that point, Bush was the winner. They caught hell now, nothing can happen to them. For catching hell. Nobody can throw them out. They nobody's gonna throw out a Supreme Court justice, and that doesn't happen. They're like anybody else. They still care about reputations and imaged all that this case. Couple of justices have let it be known that You don't want anywhere near this unless The evidence is overwhelming. They have no choice in the ruling. Ah Lido. Has telegraphed that he thinks some shenanigans have gone on. He's telegraphed how If you're going to take it to the Supreme Court, this is You know, by expressing his interest in it. He's given a road map that might Suffice with him voting to hear the case. But They don't. I'm just telling you that That the Supreme Court does not want a case. That is so weak on evidence. That the evidence doesn't speak for it. They want they they It's like the caller said they need overwhelming evidence to even take the case. So that's why Sidney Powell and Lin Wood and the Trump team. We're going to take all the time they can do a mass. This stuff. And Sidney Powell and Linwood have both alluded to how much fraud there was, but they're gonna have to demonstrate that there was enough of it. To change the outcome. And that will be seen as the reason for the decision. If they believe that the court that there is overwhelming evidence that there was so much cheating and fraud or whatever going on that it's worth taking the case, and that's I don't want to call the fallback position. But believe me, I know some of these job. This is not they don't want any part of picking the president folks, part of it a separation of powers. Large part of it is now on the Democrats and the liberal side of the court. I'm probably all wet. They would probably celebrate at the chance of being able to once and for all, get rid of Trump..

And Michael Smith, who is the executive director of the Washington County Office of Veteran Services. So Lady and gentlemen. What's happening? I got one email this this Ah, this month for a question on benefits, And it's one that we've heard in the past. I guess Michael will let you talk about it again. But it's from a gentleman named George and George wants to know how can you get an increase in his disability payments? He's Vietnam veteran and evidently still having nightmares from his service, which included the Silver Star and four bronze stars. So how do we go about getting an increase in benefits?

Of the medical condition and the increase sentiment ology, But what we always caution and I'm sure general fast home. She always agrees with me on this is that Whenever you reopen a claim there are three possible outcomes. The VA can increase you, which is a positive The VA can keep you where you are, which is somewhat of a positive within the VA can also proposed to reduce you. And it's all based on medical evidence. Go. If a person feels and they're, you know, they just feel I need to be getting more. I should have more well, it's got to be beyond how you feel about it and what you're experiencing in terms of symptoms. That needs to be documented in your medical treatment records. Well, whenever we count with somebody Before re opening a claim and requesting an increase. We asked them Do you have medical evidence that supports the next higher evaluation? What we'll do is we'll sit down. We'll open up 38 code of federal regulation will go to the schedule of rating and we'll look at it. A presidency. The the higher evaluation above where that person is currently rated. So if they're rated at 30, we'll look at the 50% evaluation will look at the 70% evaluation. And believe it or not, 100% evaluation is a little bit difficult to get on the schedule of rating. Not impossible. But the simple mythology is typically not what most people are experiencing. So most people probably be right around that 50 or 70% evaluation, and we start asking them. Hey, are you having problems at this? Are you having problems with that? And if they say Yeah, and it's documented in my my my my progress. Nose over at the door. Yeah, I'm seeing a civilian psychologist, civilian psychiatrist, and it's Documented and that or I'm going to the vet center, and I've been going to the vet center for over a year and I've got proof that my symptoms match this evaluation. That's one will re open that claim because we know we have good, solid medical evidence to support A request. Foran increase evaluation. Now I've seen this in the past. People say, Look, I want to reopen my claim. I believe my PTSD has gotten worse. I believe whatever condition has gotten worse and I'll ask them. Have you been going to your doctor to be treated for this? And they'll say no. And then they still insist on Re opening that claim. And we caution them. We've done this. And then they go to an exam and an examining official says, Wow, this your last evaluation five years ago, you've gotten better. And then they'll propose to reduce them from 70 to 30 or 15 to 0 or 30 to 0 or 30 to 10 because the only medical evidence that the has to use in those cases Are the former compensation attention examination from when they were either last rated R first rated, and then the newer evaluation with no medical evidence coming from a treating physician. That could be a precarious If again you don't have that medical evidence that supports Requesting the next higher evaluation but again On a simplistic perspective. You just merely say I want to reopen. My claim is the easiest completing a form 21 down 5 to 6 easy if it's been within a certain period of time. And requesting a higher evaluation for your current condition, and then sometimes we also use a form 21-41 38, which is a statement of support a claim. Where we allow our veterans to talk from their own perspective, what type of increased mental mythology they're dealing with, and its impact on their ability to work. Recreation and socialized. Okay, so the so the the big message here is that you know you You want to verify whatever you feel that you know, you can tell your condition has changed. You need Thio. Ah. Talk to a professional somewhere along the line and have them agree with you. Right? Well, you know, you need evidence, Dale. I mean, I think, Michael as as, uh, as always, Michael, you did a great job with that explaining it. You need the evidence. You need to show that there's something that's changed from what's in the record and Michael's writing. I've seen veterans Go and get the van. And lose what they have. And then they're angry. They understand how this could happen. And hey, we told you in advance. If your condition is worsening, you should be seeing the doctor going back to the sea. In your practitioner getting statements. You need evidence. Then what is in your record? You need something to document What's happening with you?.
6 New Travel Mistakes To Avoid Thanks To The Pandemic
"Thinking of traveling with its domestically internationally anytime in the next year, there's a whole bunch of watch outs need to know and mistakes that other travelers making that you need to avoid if you're thinking of travelling during this whole pandemic situation that we find ourselves in Alabama. This is tips for travelers I wanNA talk about things you really need to know some things have going to discuss includes. Using travel agent or self booking higher hall packing situation can change the big mistakes that people making that you need to avoid, and probably the single most important thing you need to think about platform and know exactly what you're going to do when you're traveling in the current situation. The first key watch out is when you're thinking of travelling is assume that everything will change change very quickly. So even if you can go to certain country today or to certain state. Today that could change overnight and we've seen lots of examples happen where it's perfectly fine to fly to particular country like Spain for example, out of the UK but within hours of that could change. So countries are constantly evolving and looking at what they see as safe places to travel with you have to have quarantined with you go in with you have when you return and it changes really fast. I have had friends get on a plane heading off to Spain. For example, they've arrived learned that the UK government was about to bring in quarantining midnight got on the plane and come back because they didn't want to go into fourteen day quarantine. So when you think about traveling assume that things can change very quickly and it's really really important that you stay on top of all the advice you need to say, well, connected to the news what I recommend you do is try and book as last minute as you possibly can. You also like to get really good deals nowadays by booking last minute. So you booking when you know that the chance of everything going smoothly is pretty smooth. It's really hard now to book in advance because we just don't know what the situation is going to be. Secondly, if you book even if you're booking way ahead is ensure that everything is council refundable off movable. So if change you can move things around without any penalties. The good news is a lot of. Providers with airlines or cruise lines or hotels are making it much easier to things that absolutely critical make sure that things are cancelable, refundable and easy to move. So you can basically go with the flow. The second big watch out is that if you do your own booking which I used to like to do I'd like to my hotel separately my flight separately my accommodation separately whatever it was separately. One thing you might want to decide is don't do that book at all through a travel agent the reason being that if you have to change things, it becomes very complicated because it's four or five different context 'cause. To change things if you've booked everything through a travel agent, it's one call one email and you can sit back and let them get on with everything. You'd have to sit on phone lines for five hours, six hours to try and get through to change flights. It takes an enormous amount of stress out it makes things much simpler. So even if you a sort of person that likes to pick and mix juju thing I strongly recommend that you book through a travel agent I've seen examples now doing with all my travels over this period of time is using a travel agent to make it simple. The great news is. Also particular abroad, and you have connectivity issues or this time difference issues with that one call that one email you can basically relax keep common that happens it's been a great plus in the positive traveling when there's been lots of disruptions able to contact the agency that time was Monday cruising I convinced it back relax to the beach while everyone else was scarring around and I knew they were sorting out problems. So seriously think about using travel agent at this point tiger, he can manage all of the changes or the refunds, and basically a very importantly linked to my first point make sure that you know exactly the. Situation as changes, they will keep on top those potential cancellations and changes in quarantine rules or whatever the third watch that I have, and this is a really really important one as well is don't assume that everything has returned to normal I. Think one of the big mistakes that people making is they seem their everything today. When it comes to travel is back to normal. There are three critical things that you need to bear in mind. First of all, you need to absolutely check and make sure that everything is open just because lockdowns are ending it doesn't mean that everything is open some things may have even gone bankrupt. Just simply not opening because for whatever reason, they are able to come regulations that country letting them open the beaches may not be having you might have to book to go to the beaches you might have book time started to pool. The attractions may not be open they. You might have to have certain restrictions before you can go into see the site of the museum that you wanted to see the theme parks may not be entirely open early civil rights might be open. So there's a multitude things you need to make sure that are open before you actually decide that is what you want to go because you might be able to do what you really want to do secondly. Things may not run as you used to expect them to. Or maybe very different. So for example, many islands in the Caribbean. Some states in the US, some countries around the world requires covid nineteen test within seventy two hours of heading name for example, other countries. For example, Greece, you have to register online twenty, four hours before you go, you get a special qr courage you have to show when you check in. So hundreds and thousands of people have mystere. To Greece because they didn't understand that whole system, get the qr codes or do the paperwork correctly. So you need to assume the things are going to run differently and it's going to be really different requirements
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

You are an essential part of the perfect social body. Every Body Matt Place. Everybody happy now while the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds. Pretty good. Right. Then why can't we make it happen?

But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.
How to Send Seinfeld Emails
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them. To a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream. Host DOT COM slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how to send Seinfeld emails but first and foremost Neil. What does that even mean? What are Seinfeld emails so Seinfeld? Emails are series of emails. And I could be getting this wrong. We call him soap opera emails. Oh they're different they're different. Yeah Gopher then you said okay. I'll go with signed for us and then we'll talk about so proper as well. The soap opera sequence so seinfeld emails. I've actually never seen it episode. Seinfield have you kneel seen him almost all of them. And what did they talk about during Seinfeld Bullshit? Yeah exactly the talking about nothing Seinfeld. Emails is a bunch of nothing right. It could be one email. It could be a series of emails. But here's an example. I remember a couple years ago. I had this hiring course which we still have on how to hire players and I was sitting on American Airlines flight. By the way I do not like American Airlines like this. Why Delta Guy so I wrote this entire message like this is why. Like there's customer support issues with this airline Blah Blah Blah. And at the very unlike by you book a call with us right so the whole idea. Is You write the story? You get people locked in and you kind of relate to whatever your offer is and then. You're able to write seinfeld emails every single day because every day. There's something going on and you can just talk about something that's on your mind or you can just talk about nothing and then at the very end is tied in with whatever your offer is this came from that which his name. Bingo email players Ben. Subtle definitely recommend reading bend. Settle stuff really good stuff on on email copy. That's what a seinfeld email is. And you decide. It's your discretion if you want to send it. The frequency is daily. A weekly whatever. It is exactly I could tell you. Whenever I've said Seinfeld. Emails leave actually converted pretty. Well see I don't send them and I don't like sending them because if I'm GONNA end up sending emails the more emails he ended up sending you're GonNa get more unsubscribe and you're GONNA get less people opening up your emails over time. It's just natural and when that happens you're deliverability goes down unless you scrub your list. And you know Ryan Deiss always me years ago that you can just had a ps at the email and try to get some extra session and all. That's true but I like doing is having a story narrative related to either education and then in the education at sells or just selling straight that way. I'm not drowning people's inbox. Then when I'm sending email I'm during the most amount of revenue from the email. I know that's simple in cliche but it works like I got thirty. Plus percent open rates on my email and my click rates in many cases can be upwards of six seven percent. Most cases are actually like four or five percent for quick. Yeah and just to be clear I think you definitely don't want to spam your audience. I think Ben Subtle sends every day. You typically don't want US send everyday. I mean probably like a week. Maybe that's probably how Neil Nairobi. You email out like two or three times a week that I averaged around three a week. Yeah you don't WanNa hit him too hard neal's point right and I mean we talked about in the past about making sure you scrub your list. Cumulus quality high and everything the hygiene. But I mean this is how you do seinfeld emails. I think you can even add in the soap opera sequence here if you want yes. Soap opera sequence is just imagine a soap opera. You're taking through people ups and downs and emotional rollercoaster and they're really engaged with your show and thus people keep watching one episode to another so when you're writing emails. I like taking people through emotional roller coasters. And the reason being is one it makes you more relatable to they get really hooked because who doesn't love a good story and three we've seen more conversions from it and when using the soap opera sequence in. You're trying to use emotions and take the roller coaster. You don't talk about nothing. It has to be related to whatever product or service that you're selling like. I may break down talking about my journey as an entrepreneur and I went through all these ups and downs and how I struggled but eventually got to where I was and I wish I knew what I knew now because if I did that I wouldn't have to go through all the ups and downs and if you WANNA

way Sir reiterating the district position on this topic it's been a long standing commitment of the board of education and previous administrations that we want schools that are free from discrimination and harassment and in fact even in the last two years the district has done a lot to step up its offerings in programming for students I'd love to talk a little bit about those things later on but but we want to acknowledge as well that the issues that students are bringing forward are powerful we take them at face value and see this is an opportunity to work with students to make things better I'm very clearly there pointing toward some things that are not working they signaled that the report that their awareness of the channels to make reports that needs to be improved that's on our to make that better they would like more educational opportunities and rightly pointing towards middle school education and then they want greater access to counseling support all of those things feel important to us and we're committed to trying to make them better so such things as you just mentioned just well better training of staff and the particular handling of reports about sexual violence are you moving forward on that and are you moving forward with the kind of alacrity that everybody would like to see here we think we are and we think we've got more to do so there's sort of two elements to handling a report on sexual abuse and one is the investigation itself making sure that administrators understand the basic facts accurately on the other is taking care of victims in this case and both are important so we've got work to do only doing work I want to say to make sure that our administrators understand the investigate the investigation procedures and then to make sure that survivors have access to the counseling support that they need clearly though we're hearing there are students who are not feeling taking care of in this process and that we need to do more as a community to attend to these issues we're talking now with prince even superintendent Berkeley unified schools and here is a listener who wants to speak directly to the superintendent in go ahead yes some kids at Berkeley high and a couple issues the the first email that was sent out made it seem like the victims were the boys whose names were on the wall which I think just added to the anger and frustration from the students bands and the parents the other thing is I don't your call is fading away go ahead please that the administration was trying to actively find out what girls and wrote the names on the wall as if that was a an appropriate source of you know the energy to put into it rather than dealing with their own mailings on this issue and the final thing I'll say I don't I don't mean to be cynical but my understanding is Spencer is running for student body president which may have had some impact on his on his come to Jesus moment hi I thank you for that call in and let me go do superintendent a response yeah I'm I'm happy to have you know that the school district administrative team holds responsibilities to all students that's true in all of our schools it's important they were caring both for victims students were coming forward to report instances are US harassment or intimidation or abuse and that's something that I care deeply about I know that the team does well and we have very clearly defined legal obligations that we must meet at the same time where a student has been accused we also have due process obligations we have to understand that the basic fact is accurate an accusation itself doesn't stand as a as a as a a judgment and so the team has to take that seriously understand that it can produce frustration and certainly hearing that from parents it feels like we don't do enough while we take care to understand what happened and all of these instances it is the right thing to do that the administration is trying to understand who did the writing on the bathroom walls and that's not to say that we understand what consequences would be imposed but we also again have an obligation to make sure that we we understand what's happening on our on our campuses our commitment is to try and respond sensitively to all of this we don't have a blanket approach to discipline and so are intending in this case that the consequences are predetermined but we do want to know what's going on our campus if you want to weigh in on the comment about Spencer's run for the presidency I don't know if you can guess motives or anything along those lines but I noted that a soccer coach actually forfeited a game against bishop o'dowd which is a main rival of course of Berkeley high and that speaks at least to a certain concerned that well there is been a lot of criticism of cultures in the athletic department and so forth and I think that speaks well in some ways we we want to actually ask you superintendent though about something else that came up in the discussion and that is the first amendment question or the California called question about reporters like the one here in studio with us Natalie or seen them pretty much not being allowed to do what they see is their job I'm happy to respond so on Monday students organized to walk out although we weren't in direct contact with student leaders we did understand that personal testimony would be part of the walk out so out of an abundance of caution for the student safety and for their privacy and then the potential disruptions on our campus of having media cover that testimony we asked media to I'll be out on the sidewalk during that walk out and Stevens later went into the public park just across the street they continue that testimony and that was well covered and then the following day when students came down to the walk two came down to demonstrate here at central office we made the entire central office available to media we have less concerned about testimony being part of that activism and so reporters were present in the board room as they spoke directly with me so we do think that we made the right call just to protect privacy of students in that particular instance but understand that we want to work with media to make the story accessible to the entire community well now the lawyers are involved so see how that comes out that there's a demand for the superintendent from listening campuses bring restorative justice services they can provide and lightning training and resources for administration and students alike and I think that was sort of wrapped into the demands you had wasn't yeah right third women or a set of demands that I understand student leaders are still working on and I'm very receptive to work to receiving them in person at the point that they're ready the luminary demands do include restorative justice staffs restorative justice is something that Berkeley is had for a number of years and in fact there have been R. J. counselors at our high school for a few years now so I think it's part of the response but there are many other elements of responding effectively let me bring our colors of board here let's go first to get a problem there Kathleen hi you're on the air good morning and I just wanted to say that the history and culture around a woman's respect around you sayings has not it hasn't been addressed any woman who is it any girl woman a girl who had been sexually harassed anywhere in the world there it is just the way it is and doesn't make arrive at that the fact that we are now we now have a voice we never had one before and the cost of that culture protectionism against the perpetrator backlog of rape kits and all the other thing you know there's not enough interest in pursuing it in changing the way people think and raising our young men and women in a culture of randomness in culture and sexual equity I thank you for that statement comes the let it stand and here's a question from a list your name and a lease and let me go to you on this heavy what about bystander training yeah that is definitely part of our list of demands we met on Monday night we had a three hour meeting and we came to fifteen demands and we are wanting that that we are may purposely made the student demands that we gave to the superintendent we say that on the bottom of the pamphlet that this list is dynamic and purposely vague to align our demands a more detailed list of the set action plan will be given to the school board on February nineteenth I mean we have certain training that we want implemented for certain people we want all so many gaps in the training that's happening right now and bystander training is a hundred percent a part of that Loretta come and this is really tough come in to read by a lesser name Margaret who writes my thirteen year old son the grade daughter was assaulted by a group of middle school athletes they pulled her into the boy's bathroom pulled off her clothes then the bell rang and.

"Let me one Email on that. Because I actually was waiting for somebody to make this point. Somebody did make this point. What are the things I do is what I put a story together. I also figure out what what do I think people are gonna push back on? So I can one critically think about how I'd respond to that. And here we go devils in devil's advocate earlier this year navy subcommander was fired for buying a prostitute and fill in the Philippines, actually rose. If I remember correctly he bought like ten of them, right? Big. We didn't go to down town come to him. But I digress. Yes. Because we cover that story. And I think it was just due to sheer volume and the worst part was he took it to the pool to flaunt them in for the other guys. And that is I understand is against navy rigs. So okay. Last year five sailors bus for sex trafficking. Well, that's against law for a whole lot of reasons and for years ago. Admiral was fire for CENA, sailors, should have just bought prostitutes instead of raping a girl. Arguably all of those due to either just her riffing horrible horrible take up to and including. Charges in multiple countries are illegal. I as far as I know if if a if a sailor on leave wants to go to a perfectly legal strip club. There within the rights. There's which is why.

So that would be I guess I would push back and say that that would be my argument there, but I get it. I just don't get it. That's just me. Here's one thing. I I will say guys should all be very excited about this. Regardless of how dangerous your drive is in this morning Duda. Jackass other drivers just know could have been a lot more dangerous. That according to a scientist who has pushing back on. I guess what is the most popular theory about the end of the dinosaurs? Yes. This is professor Brian Ford. Have a school here. Just maybe just didn't make the transfer. All right. So anyway. I'm sorry. Okay. Natural history museum of London and some other credits. Okay. All right. So this theory just theory, and that theory is that perhaps a cataclysmic meteor wiping out the dinosaurs in very short order is not exactly how it went down. I don't know that this guy saying that there wasn't a meteor and that it was impactful but more specifically he is saying that there is a possibility. The dinosaurs would be here with us today. If the. If they're sex lakes didn't disappear. Yeah. Yeah. There's a whole list of things that speak to the dominance of the huge reptiles. However. One of the things that was very very impactful were breeding areas four. These huge reptiles. And there was a change that a cause many of these these for lack of better words shallow sex lakes to essentially ceased to exist or or dry up which caused obviously problems with the breeding there. Shifting of the plate tectonics gargantuan slabs, Iraq, the make up the planets cross. Our are what is according to Dr Ford, potentially mostly responsible. He reckons yours was once covered in shallow lakes key to dinosaurs revival in as the continents drift of the shallow lake shrank and the ecosystem and the ability to breed disappeared. So they're hooked up lakes. Went away. You have did you pull out on this story exclusive audio of the sex leaks? Would you get this guy with the purple T Rex thing? Yes. Really?

"You could have just done it in the first Email. I like I like to be says, I don't like your tone. Elected. Barry. What you got? What did talking about prompt me? I remember the campaign very well because I've Oded against it. That's not because I've got anything against firefighters. But I'm tired of every time. There's an election. There's always something that I've got a vote on where people want more money. I did not vote for semester Turner. I think he's crooked as the day as long, but I remember every step of the way during the campaign Turner was saying the money is not there is pass this. There's gonna be firefighters laid off is gonna compromise public safety fighters. Get saying, oh, we've got to pass it. We've got to be fair. And then at the last minute and the campaign. I remember them running head saying that the money was already there. And that kind of clinch the deal for me where was like where did that come from? You bet and been there the whole campaign. And now all of a sudden, it's gonna cost us anything and Turner was very very consistent throughout the entire thing. Saying that this was going to cause layoffs. Well, they've asked it. So what what kind of corner? Have you painted Turner in just supposed to say excuse me? We do have the money. I was just lying the whole time during the campaign is I didn't wanna pay the firefighters. Now, he's gonna do exactly what he said. He was gonna do doesn't. He. Well, I don't think that's what he said. He was going to do. But I guess the bigger question is if the public, okay you voted against property, but if we respect the election and the public voted for property, then it strikes me that he has what what did he do when the public voted for property? Say leading up to the election. Cars of time. He was going to have to lay firefighters passed. He said that throughout right? And what did he do before? He started laying off our fighters. He's he filed lawsuits he filed to overturn the public vote. Kick him out of office because we don't like the the voters voted for him to be an office. Okay. But still my whole point is politically you're talking about how it's going to hurt him politically. And it probably will now. Car that maybe. Cannot believe of all the years. I've been listening you I've called up in defending flight. Because I do not like the man, I don't like it as mayor. But I'm just saying politically for him to come out now and say, oh, well, we go ahead and do this after he ran against it saying that it was gonna cause layoffs in the fire department as these painted into a corner. If he doesn't lay off firefighters now that he's a big liar. He didn't when running. From where you're winning narrate. He didn't run against it. When he was running for mayor. In fact, the firefighters endorsed him. It was a big deal at the time because I was having to hear from Bill kings people that the firefighters today, no screen endorsement of Turner. And everybody will tell you that he led them to believe that he was going to find a way to figure this out. I will tell you and you sound like, you know, a lot about Houston city politics that so I don't know how you know that, but you you're an insider of some sort or another. So I'm not telling you anything, you don't know. But I am going to tell people out there something that is not well known. I talked to my nephew yesterday, who's a firefighter with the fire department. And I asked him about salaries for where he is. He got promoted to a driver operator at only two years in because as his headlines with his dad my brother Steve yesterday, and he got second on the test, which was pretty big deal. Because Michael was his name's Michael berry to Michael was never a, you know, he wasn't a plus student because he didn't care about is a football player. But what he cares about is being a firefighter. He went and got a fire science degree. He got all the he has every certification. You can have. And you get a little bump pay for each one of those. But he informed me that the unbel- fire department pays better than the Houston fire department now, which job do you think is harder? Not that doesn't have any rough patches. But the city of Houston has got sitting Houston is a tough job. Because the type of things that you confront in a major city as opposed to suburban community like bumble, not that all of unbel- is a cakewalk, but most. Well, so our firefighters are paid less than than neighboring fire departments. Now, do we as taxpayers want to be the highest paid fire department? No, I don't think we do. I don't think that's something that we feel like we need to do. There's there was a trade off of retirement benefits in exchange for pay. The problem is then they lost at the state. So they bet the retirement benefits in exchange for lower pay and then they lost retirement benefits to. But here is what nobody wants to address. There is about a twenty year lag in our fire department. The Houston fire department keeping up with compensation with with the marketplace. And so you've now you've got a situation where the it can't be done overnight. It.

"He made that promise at CPAC and said tax dollars, specifically thirty five billion dollars. In federal reset searched grants will not be doled out to universities or colleges that do not tolerate free speech on campus, taxpayer dollars should not subsidize anti first amendment institutions. And that's exactly what they are anti first amendment. They are the speech codes. You've got safe spaces you got free speech zones. You have triggered warnings. All these universities have tried to restrict free thought intellectual academic honesty, especially when it comes to silencing conservative voices. Now, the argument against that is like Berkeley, while we spent all sorts of money on security to to make sure, but but still what they do is they have security. All right. They spend money they put security, so nobody can physically attacked them. But then they tolerate the bell ringers in the in the audience. Well, there sit there and ring a bell to the entire speech and won't remove them. So again. Their their cries of fall a little bit short. I think and I think the president should have taken it one step further and send them just the federal research grants. I would've said any university or college that does not tolerate free speech and recognize the first amendment would not be eligible for federal student loans period. Then you'd see action then you'd see him wake up. Wait a minute. These educated difference. We already have these. Yeah.

It's a very small portion, but if you realize about three days ago, it came out that his main person gave to the FBI the fake news desk. It was a fake. It was a fraud. It was paid for by Hillary Clinton, and the Democrats they gave it to John McCain who gave it to the FBI four, very evil purposes. That's not good. And the other thing he voted against repeal and replace now he's been campaigning for years for repeal and replace. I'm not a fan after all this time. He's re he's thinking of this repeal and replace. We would have had great healthcare free. He said he can't clinch back. I don't talk about it. People. Ask me the question. I didn't bring this up. You just brought it up US. You talked about it this week. You asked me the question. What I went out yesterday to the scrum. They asked me the question when they asked me the question, I answered the question, but you people bring it up. I don't bring it up. I'm not a fan. He was horrible. What he did with repeal and replace. It was what he did to the Republican party and to the nation and to sick people that could have had great healthcare was not good. So I'm not a fan of John McCain, and that's fine. By the way, our unofficial poll results from yesterday's show. When we said who do you side with President Trump or former Senator McCain twenty five to one was the count. I got one Email from a listener saying that the president shouldn't have said anything about McCain. He agrees with president. But because McCain had passed on. But McCain's aid is they're giving depositions talking about how they try to sabotage undermine and actually overthrow the the election results. So I forty five time for WCBS traffic.

So I called her up, and I told her, you know, here's a couple of is this the Muslim lady, okay? Yeah. The Muslim woman the first congresswoman ever to wear job in the house of Representative. Here's a quote, quote, number one, quote being falsely accused of anti-semitism and being a supporter of radical is not an enviable position for any politician. Mark realize it is best to be quiet and support our Middle East involvement on quote, congressman Ron Paul from the congressional record of September two thousand six page sixty three sixty one and the second one from congressman Ron Paul quote at the very least the US congress should not be loudly. Proclaiming support for the Israeli government action in Gaza, unquote, January two thousand nine page eight. Eight. Ninety eight trust sourced. All these. Go ahead. Well, well, you know, you can look it up online to he can pull up the congressional records for those. But then. You can call congressional offices and you can usually get through yesterday. Allies were given you don't get through to this into the rep. Digitize? You get through to. Legislature representatives. Right, right. But we're talking about a woman who is the US Representative, right? I just want to be clear. Yes. Today, you know, and plus you call them up and talk about severe that nothing to do with that particular controversy. It's what was the point of reading the closer, Ron Paul? I must have missed that. What does that have to do with calling this woman's office in Minnesota? I'm calling her office in Washington DC about keeping accused of being anti-semitic. Oh, okay. Lively follow. Support the state of Israel. His accusers. The reason that other members report the state of Israel is because of the force of the American Israel. Public Affairs Committee. It's all about the Benjamin baby today. A call up to talk about something else. We, you know, if you get one call after another about the same thing, here's something refreshing. I told I said Stafford. Congresswoman needs to file legislation to repeal the national minimum drinking age, Eric. Columbia underage drinking laws. That's a great idea on the on the president's day congresswoman, Omar tweeted, quote from president Lincoln, quote, those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves and under a just God. They cannot long retain it on quote, I pointed out he was such a. Well, you didn't. But anyway, I was able to point out that, you know, look who's denying freedom to others. You know, like. Minnesota state Senate president James Madison got busted for drunk driving on may twenty second two thousand nine the Senate president. Senate president Tampa medicine. Oh, yeah. It was his turn to drive. Congress- congressman Kevin Brady of Texas. He was the chair of the House Ways and means committee. I think it's interesting what you're pointing out here. Tom is that these people who would Dame to be your betters that want you to believe that there's somehow morally superior because they want to tell you how to live your life. These people are also out there driving s faced right? And they do it. I mean, it's you you can't go three days without how hearing about a lawmaker breaking the law, and you know, that they're going to get off, you know, that they're not gonna face the extent of the lobby. You know, you will if you were to do the same thing. And in a lot of cases, they're breaking the very laws that they themselves wanted to put into place that, you know, the ones that are the ones that are anti gay get caught in the bathroom playing footsie with. Prostitution somebody next to them that kind of thing that the guys that are anti-drug anti prostitution. Get busted snorting crank off a hunting knife with a with a prostitute in a hotel room. I mean, it's just it's crazy. It's it's pathetic. And Tom thank you for the call. Ron Paul was all about their still. But I like to hear Ron Paul quotes. Sure. Yeah. What the heck?
