A highlight from GARY GENSLER ATTACKS STONER CATS NFTS & RIPPLE XRP WILL FIGHT SEC, HEDERA HBAR STABLECOIN STUDIO!

If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start off with the SEC versus NFTs. Stoner Cats agrees to pay a one million dollar fine to settle SEC charges. The Hollywood superstar backed Stoner Cats NFTs has neither admitted nor denied the SEC's allegation that it issued an unregistered security. So once again, folks, we see regulation by enforcement by scumbag regulator Gary Gensler. They're not putting out the clear rules of the road. And we even have two commissioners that dissented from this enforcement action. So we see even folks within the SEC don't agree. But we know Gary Gensler has been running around with a false narrative saying everything in the crypto industry is a security and that it's breaking securities laws. But of course, he's not providing any guidance. And we saw even members of Congress question him. Tell us what is it, which crypto coins and tokens are securities? Is Ethereum a security? Is XRP is a security? He can't answer. Right. So we are dealing with nonsense. And, you know, the challenging part here is that he takes these settlements here because these companies don't have the capital to fight the government, to fight the SEC. You saw Ripple. It's they spent one hundred million dollars to fight the SEC. So many of these companies don't have that type of capital. So they settle just to get the SEC off their back. But unfortunately, you know, Gary adds this to his wins list. Now, the good thing is that Stoner Cats is not some major brand, you know, well -known. The defeat that the SEC took with Grayscale and Ripple and I think soon Coinbase, those are big names and well -known. So they carry more weight when, you know, Gary takes the loss. So let me give you the details here, guys. The U .S. Securities and Exchange has charged and settled with NFT issuer Stoner Cats, too, for allegedly offering an unregistered security. Without denying or admitting to the SEC's allegations, Stoner Cats, too, has agreed to cease and desist from offering the NFTs and pay a one million dollar fine. Stoner Cats, too, also agreed to destroy all NFTs in its possession and issue a notice of order on its website and social media channels, the SEC said. Now Stoner Cats, if you're wondering who is the Hollywood backers, it was issued by actors Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. They released 10 ,000 NFTs in a highly anticipated drop in July 2021. The drop raised eight million dollars. Now, folks, you see how ridiculous this is, you know? So what does that make any artwork that's put out there on the Web, right? Let's say it's not in NFT format. Let's say it's baseball cards or sports cards. This is just ridiculous. The SEC is completely overreaching here. And don't get me wrong, they have a job to do to monitor these NFT prices and crypto projects because there are bad actors. But clearly they're going after the good actors and they're leaving many bad actors to do their thing. So this really sucks. Now, SEC Commissioners Hester Peirce and Mark Ueda issued a dissenting opinion Wednesday arguing the Howey test cannot be met. So clearly, clearly the SEC is divided here and we know the entire industry and even members of Congress are not on board with this nonsense. But Congress has to act. The onus is on them to get the rules in place because Gary is just going to continue his nonsense and he's trying to get that Treasury job. So he's just trying to rack up wins here to say, see, look at all the enforcement actions I took. Look at all the capital I got. And he won't give the details to say, hey, these guys were just trying to issue NFTs. He'll say, you know, they're scammers, they're hucksters, they're doing all kinds of bad activity. Right. So that's his narrative. So we got to fight, folks. And this is why we use social media to our advantage, contact your representatives and much more. Here's what Mark Ueda had to say. Analyzing investment contracts in this way carries implications for creators of all kinds. We're to apply these securities laws to physical collectibles in the same way we applied them to NFTs. Artist creativity would wither in the shadow of legal ambiguity. Mark summed it up really well there. This is really, really insane what the SEC is doing. And we got to keep fighting, folks. But scumbag regulator Gary Gensler continues. Now, interestingly enough, yesterday, some folks from Ripple were interviewed by CNBC. And here's the headline from CNBC. Ripple says it will fight the SEC lawsuit all the way through. Ripple said it plans to fight the ongoing lawsuit with the U .S. Securities Exchange Commission all the way through its president, Monica Long, told CNBC. Ripple is among the crypto companies such as Binance and Coinbase, which are being sued by the SEC for violating laws. So Ripple is going to continue fighting. You guys know there's going to be even the proper party at the end of the month of September. And I'm looking forward to that in New York City. I will be attending. I know some people are down on it because the prices are down. But look, if you have to understand the market cycles, right, what's playing out, everything's down. Bitcoin is down. Even a large, large part of the markets out there because of the macroeconomic factors of inflation, rate hikes and much more. So I'm glad to see that Ripple is going to continue fighting and I'm sure they're going to push for some sort of settlement. And we know the SEC is trying to appeal, but, you know, Ripple took the bigger slice of the pie from a victory standpoint where XRP token was intrinsically stated as not being a security. And I think the judge got it right there. It goes back to how we test the orange groves and the oranges that we get at our supermarket or orange trees in general are not securities by themselves, but rather it's the packaging. So that's the key. So the tokens themselves, not securities is just how are they being packaged? And don't get me wrong, NFTs could be, and I say could be in certain circumstances, securities, right? If they're packaged in a certain way. But we know if you just simply issue artwork and NFTs on the blockchain, that does not make them intrinsically a security. But Gary Gensler, we know he doesn't. He's trying to muddy the waters and cause confusion and just saying everything that's issued is a security. We know it's nonsense. Now, moving ahead, Flare, many of you hold the Flare tokens. If you're an XRP holder who participated in the Flare snapshot, you got a distribution of your Flare tokens. You continue to get that. I personally am doing that and I delegate my Flare tokens and I'm earning rewards. I'm doing the same thing for Songbird. You can of course invest in the Flare token if you want. Well, Flare is going to be moving to a staking model and they provided an update here saying we will soon enter phase two of three in Flare's transition to a staking model, opening new opportunities to delegate stake to validators and earn rewards. The date when staking can commence will be announced in the coming weeks. So if you're a Flare token holder, this is great news and I'm looking forward to this. If I can stake and earn more rewards, that'll be great. And you know, I'm not selling any of the earnings I get from delegation because we're in a bear market. I am just delegating, earning more tokens, and then when the bull market comes, I will be looking to take profits as the prices rise. Now speaking of prices rising and selling, a great platform to do so is on Uphold, which is a great platform. I've been using them since 2018. They're one of my go -to exchanges. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities and 37 national currencies. So that's different Fiat currencies, and you can swap easily between precious metals, cryptocurrencies, and these different 37 national currencies. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. All right, folks, we got some very big Hedera HBAR news. So recently I interviewed Leemon Beard, who's one of the co -founders of Hedera. They're doing great things. I think this is going to be one of the blockchain projects that can really come out of this speculative crypto bubble and be one of the winners, right? If you look at the speculative bubble of the dot -com boom, you had your Googles, your Ebays, your Amazons, and a few others that came out that did really well. I think Hedera is one of them. And part of their governing council includes Google, Dell, IBM, Boeing, some of the biggest names. And just recently, Hyundai and Kia started building on the Hedera network. So huge news. So they tweeted out, we're excited to announce the Hedera stablecoin studio, the all -in -one stablecoin configuration issuance and management toolkit tailored for Web3 platforms, institutional issuers, enterprises, and payment providers alike. By leveraging Hedera, the network, and in collaboration with our partners, the stablecoin studio delivers a highly performant, seamless, and end -to -end stablecoin solution with proof of reserve, dedicated custodians, and network native KYC slash AML flagging. So this is pretty big. They said with Hedera, predictable fees, high programmability, and robust network of ecosystem partners, stablecoin issuance and management have never been simpler. Everything you need to build and configure stablecoins with ease. So this is a really great feature. Obviously, stablecoins are going to be a big part of the token economy and the ability to have your blockchain utilized for tokenization, whether it be CBDCs, stablecoins, NFTs, tokenization of real -world assets, and much more is going to be key to adoption because that's the future. So Hedera is ahead of the curve in many ways. And if you haven't seen my interview with Lehman Abir, be sure to check it out because we talk about the Hyundai -Kia situation. We talk about Xinhan Bank with their stablecoin on the Hedera blockchain being used to improve cross -border payments. So it's really, really big things happening here. I'm very bullish on HBAR. Now moving ahead, Coinbase, to integrate the Bitcoin Lightning Network in a bid to drive adoption, Coinbase CEO labeled Bitcoin the most important asset Tuesday following an announcement his company would integrate Lightning. Now Coinbase is a little bit late to the game here. There have been other exchanges like OKEx that integrated the Lightning Network. But more and more, I think, platforms are going to leverage the Lightning Network to help boost Bitcoin's ability to scale. Look, I don't think the Lightning Network is even there yet. We know the folks at Lightspark are trying to do something, Jack Mahler's strike, but it's not there. Look, Bitcoin is a great store of value, great hard money, great digital goal. I view it from that standpoint. And that's why I hold it in my portfolio. It has made me money. But for payments, not great. Not great at all. Now there could be great improvements to the Lightning Network where it gets global adoption and people start using it. But we are far from that. And we'll have to see what guys like Jack Dorsey's Cash App, David Marcus's Lightspark, Jack Mahler's strike, and these guys do because they've done it in small increments and small markets. But there's no major global adoption here where people are like, I'm going to go spend some sats. Don't get me wrong, it may be happening in, once again, small scenarios in El Salvador. But what about the rest of the world? People are opting more for stablecoins. So this is something that the folks who are building the Lightning Network have to figure out how to scale this thing and make it easy for people to onboard. So Coinbase looking to make a push here and get more adoption around Bitcoin, and it certainly makes sense. Bitcoin is definitely the brand that's well known. A lot of people come into the market via the Bitcoin asset, and then they usually go to altcoins after that. Now speaking of altcoins, Vitalik Buterin was speaking at Permissionless, the crypto conference in Austin. It's actually held by Blockworks. And he talked a bit about what's in the future for Ethereum. Now, some people listening to this may be very upset at Vitalik, Joe Lubin, Bill Hinman and so forth. And that's fine. You know, I understand I'm not the biggest fans of these folks as well. I do respect Vitalik as a coder and what he has built. I think folks can't ignore that. He did build a great platform. First mover advantage, the EVM is used by many other different blockchains. And there's been a lot of building on Ethereum. You can't deny that regardless if you hate it or you don't hold it. The facts are there from DeFi to NFTs and much more. And a lot of smart contract tech is being used and built around Ethereum. And he made some interesting statements as to what Ethereum is going to target next. So he said DeFi is cool. NFTs are a new primitive, but an extension of something that has a history and using crypto for payments is good, but also familiar. These are individual pieces that are designed to fit it into an ecosystem that's otherwise the same as before, Buterin said. He said what he's excited about is decentralized social, repeatedly name dropping Faircaster, a Twitter like protocol on the OP mainnet with a companion warp cast mobile app that is currently invite only alpha release. Along with Lens developed by Aave founder Stani Kulichov and running on Polygon's proof of stake chain, Faircaster and similar social experiences are using crypto tools to complete with centralized platforms. Let's see how far we can push things in that direction, Buterin said. But where I see the longer term feature here is it really can plug into all the other stuff that we've been doing as a space. So it sounds like he's trying to build like some sort of decentralized social platform that will include the tokenization, the entities, the DeFi and so forth. That makes sense. And as we head into Web3, just as people transition from Web1 to Web2 and even earlier versions of Web2 social platforms like Myspace and Friendster to eventually Facebook, Twitter and so on, we're going to see a transition from the Web2 social platforms into Web3 social platforms, especially as they become more easy to onboard and use. And there's a layer of rewards of tokens. And if people can legitimately earn tokens and get paid for their activity and it's on the block chain, it's verifiable, it's hard to hack and things like that. They will come folks. They will come. People will come, especially as data breaches continue with social platforms mainstream and other platforms as well. So interesting statements here from Vitalik. And I think we want to watch this closely because look, like I said, Ethereum has the adoption, has a lot of developers, has a lot of capital behind a lot of resources. So if there's any token that comes with these social platforms, I'm going to be looking into that and be looking into these platforms and seeing how I can capitalize on it to make a nice return. Well, folks, that's the news. Let me know what you think. Leave your thoughts and comments below. Hit the thumbs up button. Hit the five star rating on the podcast platforms.

Fresh update on "one hundred million" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek
"One of the big problems obviously is just the financial pressures on their customer base, which skews towards towards the lower income end of the spectrum. They have said, however, that they're going to spend more on labor. That's certainly an acknowledgement that the store conditions are not where they want them and that they're deciding to spend money to try to improve things this year. Another Another thing that's driving that, I think, is just a stepped up competitive threat. For years, Dollar General was known as the big successful dollar store chain, Dollar Tree, its closest rival was sort of an also ran that companies in the middle of a turnaround and so seems to be becoming a stronger competitor. And then you've got Walmart, which lost some ground to the dollar stores in the Great Recession, really doesn't want that to happen again if the economy slows down and is rolling out a lot of initiatives, whether it's pricing or delivery services that are designed to sort of affect her competition on the lower end. Hey, Brendan, and the stock, as you said, down more than 50 % year, this you know, trading at a 52 week low. What does the company say about all of this? They reported earnings a couple weeks ago and, you know, again, cut their profit forecast. Interestingly, they had initially said they were going to spend an extra one hundred million dollars on labor this year. They moved that number up to 150 million last month. So clearly engaging with the idea that for their own customers, their own workers, year. You know, there are some things that are falling short right now. Whether that's enough remains a big question mark. But what I mean about all these specific things, I mean, this is pretty gross for workers and unsafe for workers. you And, know, we talked about the New Orleans worker who were blocking the the fire exits and there was a fire. Unfortunately, nobody was there. But this stuff continues. And I'm curious if the company addressed any of these specifics. We sent them a very detailed inquiry. They got back to us with with a significant reply that, you know, repeated things they've said in the past, which has to do with them saying that they want to provide stores that are safe to work in. They want to provide opportunity for their workers. I think that a lot of the details in the story show the ways in which they've come up short in those goals. The extra investment they're making suggests that they're sort of acknowledging some of the shortcomings. But again, whether turns that out to be enough to really kind of turn things around, I think the proof will be in the pudding. was That Bloomberg News, U .S. retail reporter Brendan Case and Businessweek editor Joel Weber on this week's Cover Story. The new issue of the magazine is available on newsstands now online at Bloomberg .com slash Businessweek and always on the terminal. You're going to want to read every line in that story because there's so much in there that you're just going to kind of like say, wait, what? All right, everybody, you're listening to Bloomberg Businessweek. Coming up, the story of how the late writer Tom Wolfe managed to create the world's most famous fictional bond trader. Then on one of the letters, Tom starts drafting a reply saying, You know, your friends were fascinating and they clued me into this world that I knew nothing about. So I put all this together and I said, wait a minute, this guy, Kirk McTern is the guy who was responsible for Sherman McCoy Wall Street trader. The bonfire of the vanity's backstory explained. That's next. This is Bloomberg. Bloomberg Radio on demand and in your podcast feed on the latest edition of the Bloomberg Daybreak US edition podcast, we looked at whether the autoworker strike is expanding ending with Bloomberg's Craig Trudell. I think the sort of wide held expectation is that this is a strike that will expand. They've talked about by noon Friday if they don't have substantial progress made in these negotiations that they will sort of up the ante here. So I think what we've heard as this strike is now a weekend is really that the sort of bid and ask here between the union and the companies remains pretty vast and not a whole lot of budging on either side. So what are the
Councilwoman Chris Kelley Has Big Plans for the City of Hercules
"Tell me within your city, you have something pretty exciting going on that you've been working your whole tenure on and will continue to be a focus of the cities for the next 10 years. Can you talk to us about the Hercules transportation hub and what's going on there? Yeah, so the Hercules hub is located. It's an area of our city down by the waterfront many years ago, 50, 60 years ago. That's where the dynamite factory was. And about 20 years ago, some housing, single family housing was built. But the city also has had a plan to bring in multifamily housing, which we're doing now with a Canadian developer led core and to develop our Hercules hub, which is walkable with bus train, the capital corridor stopping and hopefully the ferry. So three modes of transportation located next to multifamily housing, up to 1400 units, and then some other single family home neighborhoods in the area. So that's pretty exciting. And right now we are in the process of trying to get enough funding, about 12 million dollars total, to finish our complete design. We've been through all the environmental review and so forth, but we've got the backing of the capital corridor and we've just gotten two point four million from a transit intercity rail grant from the state of California. And we've got an application in for a federal grant. So if we can get that 12 million, then we can completely finish the design and we will be what's called shovel ready, which means when that happens, we can go out and construct and to build the train station will probably take about 100 million total, depending on when we do that. And once we build the train stop, then we will have access to the other side of the railroad tracks, which run right along the bayfront. And then we would hopefully get the ferry because we could have access out there and access out to the Hercules Point where the ferry could come in. We've already got bus service here now, so I'm just going around and making people aware of and getting folks interested in the Hercules hub. And we've had a number of officials from MTC, from WETA, the ferry, from a whole bunch of housing people. And when they come here, they say, oh, my gosh, I never knew that this existed. This is gorgeous. This is beautiful. You folks are actually building housing and with transportation. A lot of people talk about it, but we're actually going to do it. So I'm really excited about this. And that's great. And you sent me a good video earlier today about that, and we will put that in the show notes. It's a short video. It gives you some good images of what they're doing there. So I'll encourage listeners to go check that out. So I love it. Do you have water, land, rail in the plans? But you're one hundred million dollars short after you get the twelve million. Right. So that's a big round number. How do you get to that? First, we get the money for design. And then when we do that and we start to go through design and become shovel ready, then our consultants will help us go after actual grants for construction. And there are a number of grants that they have identified, federal grants, some state grants. And of course, the city will also supply some money for that. So it's just kind of piecing everything together. I've spoken with our congressperson, John Garamendi, also with Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, Congressman Mike Thompson, Assembly member Buffy Wicks, state senator Nancy Skinner. They're all on board and they're very helpful for us, as is Contra Costa Transportation Authority. They've already given us some money for this. And I have to say that several officials from MTC have come out and they're very excited and supported. So it's just a matter of working on that. But once we're shovel ready, then that will be a huge move forward.
A highlight from 1373: BlackRock Bitcoin ETF Will Send Bitcoin to $180K by THIS Date
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis, as well as Bitcoin speculators are now saying that at least 69 ,000 all time high in play. But right now is the least amount owned by hodlers. We have to keep this in mind. We're also going to be discussing Max Kaiser's Congress speech about disarming the banksters along with their financial weapons of mass destruction, as well as Bitcoin friendly El Salvador sees bonds return soar to 70 percent thus far this year. In twenty twenty three, we're also going to be discussing a crypto analyst who forecast the big Bitcoin price move to forty thousand. I'll be breaking down his timeline, as well as rich dad Robert Kiyosaki doubles down on his hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price call and says he shares a common enemy with BTC, quoting him right here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money. Bad news. If the stock and bond markets crash, gold and silver will skyrocket. The worst news is if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars, gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand savers of fake US are F debt is too high. Mom, pop and kids are in trouble. I hope I'm wrong. Please take care. We're also going to be discussing breaking news. Fundstrats Thomas Lee on live TV, quoting him here. If the spot Bitcoin ETF gets approved, the clearing price of Bitcoin is one hundred and fifty to one hundred eighty thousand dollars.

This is Pod episode number thirteen hundred and seventy three. This is August 16th, twenty twenty three. I'm your host, JV. We do have lots to cover. So let's dive in with our market watch for the day. As you can see here in your screen, got Bitcoin price maintaining that critical twenty nine thousand dollars support while ether also correcting but maintaining and holding on to eighteen hundred dollars and checking out coin market cap dot com. The current crypto market cap sits at just one point one five trillion with thirty one billion in volume at the past twenty four hours. Bitcoin dominance back on the rise at forty nine point two percent, with the ether dominance at 19 percent even and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past twenty four hours. Bone Shiba swap up 13 percent trading at a dollar fifty four, followed by say up eleven percent trading at 19 cents, followed by rocket pool up three percent trading just under twenty seven dollars and checking out next. As you can see here on your screen, we have crypto bubbles. We can see the top gainers for the past week. Bone leading the pack, pun intended, up fifteen percent, but massive losses for the overall altcoin market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, which you can see here. We're currently rated at fifty two, which is neutral. Yesterday, a fifty three last week, a fifty neutral and last month, a fifty four, which is neutral. And welcome to those just joining us in today's live stream. So much to cover. Next up, we're going to dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out some of the charts, as well as some interesting facts with some hodlers as well. Bitcoin speculators are leading a period of exhaustion and apathy across the market. In the latest edition of the weekly newsletter, the week on chain analytics firm Glassnode wrote about waning conviction about Bitcoin's short term hodlers. Now, where are my long term hodlers at? Make some noise. And after several months of stagnant Bitcoin price action, frustration amongst market participants has led to predictions of deeper downside to come. The bulls remain unable to break the resistance, while the sellers likewise face multiple support zones in the form of trend lines between the current twenty nine thousand and twenty five thousand dollar levels. And amongst these is the short term hodler cost basis, or better known as the realized price. Short term hodlers are defined by Glassnode as entities hodling coins for one hundred and fifty five days or less and correspond to the more speculative end of the Bitcoin spectrum. investor Now, the short term hodler cost basis has function as support throughout twenty twenty three, but is rapidly rising and currently sits at twenty eight thousand six hundred dollars. Now, by contrast, the long term hodler cost basis reflects the aggregate purchase price of the most stubborn hodlers and thus far lower at twenty thousand three hundred. Quitting Glassnode, the separation between these two cost basis is an indicator that many recent buyers have a relatively equated acquisition price and continuing, researchers describe the market as being potentially top heavy with even a modest Bitcoin price come down now apt to send the short term hodler cohort back into the red. Quoting Glassnode again, on the macro scale, the supply distribution does resemble similar periods during the bear market recoveries of the past. However, a shorter time frame, it could be argued to be slightly top heavy market with many price sensitive investors at risk of falling into unrealized losses. Now, despite this, it appears that speculators have already started to reconsider their market exposure. Let me know if you have or if you're continuing to stack stats as you should. Quoting them here, we note that the supply held by the long term hodlers continues to increase, hitting an all time high of fourteen point six million BTC. So in direct contrast, short term hodler supply declined to multiyear lows at two point five six million BTC the week on chain added. So overall, this suggests that conviction of Bitcoin investors does remain impressively high and few are willing to liquidate their holdings. Are you one of them? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now, the last time the short term hodlers had such little market presence was in October of twenty twenty one, just before the all time high of sixty nine thousand dollars. And it is very interesting as we see the short term hodlers continue to sell and the long term hodlers continue to stack stats as they should. I say the smart money are the whales and the long term hodlers. Would you agree? Let me know your honest opinion. Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's discuss our next story of the day. And that's Max Keiser's rant when he spoke in Congress back in January of two thousand and nine, talking about disarming the bankers and their financial weapons, a mass destruction, a very powerful speech given by Max. If you've got to hear this, let me know. I posted and transcribed it on what was formerly known as Twitter, now known as X this morning, quoting Max Keiser. This is an important day as we review the situation with respect to disarming bankers. After the first Great Depression, Congress passed the Glass -Steagall Act. The purpose of the resolution was to disarm bankers as well as brokers. Now, never again would they be allowed to destroy the global financial system. I'm here to warn you that they have, in fact, rearm themselves with a deadly toxic debt instrument known as a derivative. I asked for this session today to support the core assessment made by FAME investor Warren Buffett. He said derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction and that have apparently been devised by madmen. These instruments pose a mega catastrophic risk. Ladies and gentlemen, don't wait for the mushroom cloud of bad debts to explode over our financial system. Let's disarm the bankers before it's too late. Very powerful words coming from Max Keiser. And again, this is circa January of two thousand and nine, right around the time of the Bitcoin Genesis block, which was released after the 2008 financial crisis. And lo and behold, you can consider him a prophet because everything he was talking about is exactly what's been going on. Financial terrorism as it continues as the central bankers of the world continue to print money until the wheels fall off. Massive shout out to Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert. As you know, I'm huge fans of them both via the Kaiser report as they were the first one to cover Bitcoin with international coverage back when it was trading between a dollar to ten dollars. This is going all the way back in 2011, so literally was at 14 or 13 years ago. So much respect to the high priest of Bitcoin. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our next story of the day. Now that we covered Max versus the banksters and that is El Salvador and their success with their bonds, which have been released as returns soar to 70 percent thus far this year. Check it out. El Salvador, which adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender back in 2021, has seen its dollar bound outperform the majority of the emerging markets with a 70 percent return thus far this year. The massive rally of the bond has now drawn interest from several institutional giants, which include JPMorgan Chase. Take that tapeworm Jamie Dimon, as well as Eaton Vance and PGIM Fix, promoting President Najib Okele to say, I told you so. Now, apart from the institutional giants, the likes of Lord and EBIT and also Neuberger German or I'm sorry, Berman Group LLC and UBS Group AG have also added debt security since April, according to Bloomberg. And also, Paolo, the chief technology officer of Bitfinex, told Cointelegraph that the performance of El Salvador bonds is a clear signal that the investors are supportive of the financial policies of the El Salvadoran government and demonstrates the renewed interest in investing in the El Salvador story while adding the following as the first company to receive a digital asset license, we are seeing significant interest in digital asset issuance and renewable energy investments, which the country has in abundance and is being used for Bitcoin mining and to provide more energy for the country's electrical grid. Now, the growing demand of El Salvador's debt security in 2023 is a quite contrast to its performance a couple of years ago when it first adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender. That's right. They've come a long way. The Bitcoin adoption created uncertainty amongst investors who bet against the country's bonds with several financial agencies, casting a shadow of doubt on the country's financial future. In February of 2022, the American Credit Agency agency Fitch lowered the country's long term issuer default rating from a B minus to CCC, inciting policy uncertainty in the Bitcoin adoption, along with an eight hundred million dollar debt payment due for January of twenty twenty three. Now, keep in mind, El Salvador did pay that eight hundred million dollar debt in full within the due maturing time to start off the year, raising confidence in the country's bonds yet again. And the president, Bukele, at the time noted that they had proven every finance pundit wrong, who doubted whether they would be able to pay their debts in a time after Bitcoin adoption, quoting Bukele here. He actually shared this in January of twenty twenty three in the past year. Almost every legacy international news outlet said that because of our Bitcoin bet, El Salvador was going to default on its debt by January of twenty twenty three, since we had an eight hundred million dollar bond maturing today, literally hundreds of articles. Never forget that. Now, the rise in confidence of investors is visible from the bonds performance throughout the year. And during the same time, El Salvador also passed a landmark crypto bill paving the way for the infamous Bitcoin backed volcano bonds. Let's freaking go. Now, El Salvador and its president have been at the receiving end of criticism every single day since they first adopted Bitcoin in September of twenty twenty one as legal tender, along with the United States dollar financial pundits predicted that the Bitcoin adoption will further strain El Salvador's financial conditions. However, to the contrary, within two years, the debt security of the state has become a hot cake amongst institutional giants, the same that once advised against buying it. So I'll say it for Bukele. I told you so. So there you have it. Let's go El Salvador mass adoption. Bring it. In which country do you think will likely be next to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender and follow in the footsteps of Bukele and El Salvador? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now, let's discuss a forty thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction, as well as a timeline, which I'm going to be sharing with you right here. If you think Bitcoin is likely to hit this forty thousand target, let me know. Now, while he followed analyst Pizzino is bullish on Bitcoin as the flagship crypto asset trades in a narrow range for the past few days or we could say for the past few weeks in a new video, he tells his three hundred thousand YouTube subs the Bitcoin can climb by over 40 percent from the current level between now and September of twenty twenty four. Considering September is only two weeks away, that would be pretty enticing winning it. The crypto analyst says that his upside target of forty two thousand is the range midpoint or the 50 percent level between the Bitcoin all time high of sixty nine thousand and Bitcoin's twenty twenty two low of around fifteen five. Quitting him here, it is possible that we see a test of forty two thousand happen within the period between now and September of twenty twenty four. So in basically twelve, thirteen months, a test of the 50 percent level of forty two thousand two hundred and then a retreat. Do you think we're likely to rise on up to that forty thousand mark? Let me know. And after appreciating to over forty thousand Bitcoin could thereafter correct either mildly or substantially, according to the analyst quoting him again, it could be a small retreat like back here, June to August of twenty sixteen, where it tested seven hundred and then came back to five hundred. Or it could be a deep retreat where it tested all the way up to fourteen thousand in June of twenty nineteen, when the 50 percent level was only eleven thousand five hundred. And then it came all the way back down to four thousand in March of twenty twenty, thanks to no vid. And to watch this video with the analyst predicting Bitcoin can rise to one hundred and sixty one thousand, check the show notes below the video in the description. And please do let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. And now let's discuss our next story of the day, and that's the one hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction from Rich Dad author Robert Kiyosaki. In fact, he even claims that Bitcoin can now go to a million dollars. So let's break this down and then we'll dive into our feature story of the day with the BlackRock ETF, which can send the Bitcoin price parabolic over six hundred percent, surpassing a whopping price target of one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. But first, Robert Kiyosaki, he stands behind his call that the Bitcoin price will put a new all time high and run all the way up to one hundred thousand. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the author. Now, Kiyosaki refers to Bitcoin as the people's money very commonly and says that those who save in U .S. dollars are likely screwed. And that was the nice way of putting it. Reading his tweet here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money preach bad news if the stocks and bond market crash gold and silver to skyrocket the worst news if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars. Now, that doesn't sound like so such bad news to me. That would be extremely brilliant news for the Bitcoin price to go to a million. But I understand an economy crash is not good. But he continues gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand. I do not see those precious metals rising like that, especially considering they're controlled by the central bankers and the cartels have been controlling precious metal markets for a very long time. But nonetheless, I digress. He continues, savers of fake U .S. dollars are effed. Debt is too high. Mom, pops and kids are in trouble. And I hope I am wrong, but please take care. I mean, very bold words coming from Kiyosaki. Also, in an interview he did with Stansberry Research's Daniela Cambone, he warned up the idea of Bitcoin as he has lost all trust in institutions running the country, quitting him here. I like Bitcoin because we have an enemy in common breach. It's called the federal government breach, the Treasury and the Fed and Wall Street breach. I don't trust them. If you trust them, save dollars and get yourself a nice bond. I do not trust those guys. How many can relate with Rich Dad earlier in the year? Kiyosaki also predicted Bitcoin would eventually skyrocket to one hundred thousand per coin, highlighting that the king crypto does not need the intervention of the government to sustain its value. So there you have it. Come in directly from Rich Dad. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author. And with that being shared, now let's dive into our featured story of the day. That's everything surrounding the BlackRock ETF, a spot Bitcoin ETF being approved in the United States. Tom Lee was just recently interviewed and says he believes it will automatically send the Bitcoin price somewhere between one hundred and fifty and one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. So let's break this down, shall we? And here this is on this interview. I also already transcribed it for your benefit here. And I'm going to start reading so we don't have to play that sound clip because it's copyrighted. Anyways, he's asked, I always like hearing your price targets. Because you are always so fearless. When are you or where are you on Bitcoin by the end of next year? Let's say. And he responded, well, it's a spot Bitcoin gets approved, referring to the spot Bitcoin ETF. I think the demand will be greater than the daily supply of Bitcoin. So the clearing price, which is done by Sean Farrell, who is our crypto digital strategist, is over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. In fact, it could even be one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin. And then when asked, that's only if the spot ETF gets approved. Tom Lee responded, yes, a spot US because a spot Bitcoin ETF is approved already outside the US, which is a fact. And then asked, but if it's not approved, then are we just lingering at around twenty nine thousand in which he responded? There is still upside cast because of the halving next year. So you'll have a drop in supply again. And so the clearing price has to increase, but it won't be six figures. So he's ultimately saying the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF, regardless if it's BlackRock or any of the others, such as Fidelity or ARK Invest, 21 shares, etc., will absolutely send the Bitcoin price to a minimal of one hundred and fifty thousand. And that target could even be as high as one hundred and eighty thousand. But he's also saying in the same token, if Gary Gensler and the SEC does not approve it by the time of the halving, do not expect a six figure Bitcoin price, but expect the price to go up because of the drop in supply as well as the gain and demand. I think the analyst makes a very great point. Now, he was also interviewed a few weeks ago and he discussed this price action occurring within nine months. So I wanted to give you that time frame because the Bitcoin ETF is scheduled to be released sometime. Not the ETF, but the halving is scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four. So anyways, here's what he had to share in this interview. Current Bitcoin market is in balance with twenty five million in daily block rewards and twenty five million in daily demand, incremental ETF demand. Sean Farrell, their analyst, believes that twenty five billion dollars of demand is possible within the first year. So this is how they come to these numbers. This is one hundred million dollars in daily demand. This would bring the daily demand to one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. So the implied equilibrium price would need to rise so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Equilibrium analysis suggests that a clearing price is one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin before the April twenty twenty four halving. Now, if you'd like to see that come to fruition, make some noise in the live chat. Now he continues. Generally, this idea of higher equilibrium price is consistent. Sean Farrell estimates that the flow multiplier for Bitcoin is four to five X and on the odds of a spot Bitcoin ETF finally getting approved in the United States after numerous rejections of the past year. Here's what we had to share. Bitcoin ETF could finally get approved. Sean Farrell sees the BlackRock effect, making it this far more likely today. Now, BlackRock, we all know, is the world's largest asset manager, and they say they have roughly 10 trillion or more in assets under management. So there you have it. Very bullish predictions coming from Tom Lee and on regards to this BlackRock ETF being approved. But I'd love to know your thoughts. Do you think that the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF will be approved within the next nine months before the Bitcoin halving scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four? Let me know why or why not.

Well, folks, the big news of the day is, of course, PayPal launching their U .S. dollar stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. This is massive, massive news. PayPal is a giant company, a well -known brand existed before crypto, of course, and they are building on the Ethereum blockchain. So there are multiple impacts to the crypto industry and market here. One further validation that the technology solves real world problems. You have a big name like PayPal adopting it further gives credibility to the crypto industry and the asset class. It will help usher in more capital from institutional investors and obviously more retail will enter the market. So let me give you some details here. PayPal launches U .S. dollar stablecoin pay USD, which is, well, the ticker symbol is PYUSD is designed to contribute to the opportunity stablecoins offer for payments and is 100 % backed by U .S. dollar deposits, short term U .S. treasuries and similar cash equivalents. PayPal USD is redeemable one to one for U .S. dollars and is issued by Paxos Trust Company. Now, remember, Paxos was the one working with Binance to launch BUSD. In fact, I interviewed the co -founder and CEO of Paxos last year, Charles Cascarilla. You can definitely check out that interview. And Paxos is a regulated entity. Now all of a sudden, six months later, Paxos was green lighted to, of course, manage issue and manage the PayPal stablecoin. Funny how that works out, right, guys? So they said here, starting today and rolling out in the coming weeks, eligible U .S. PayPal customers who purchase PayPal USD will be able to, one, transfer a PayPal USD between PayPal and compatible external wallets, send person to person payments using PYUSD, fund purchases with PayPal USD by selecting it at checkout, convert any of PayPal supported cryptocurrencies to and from PayPal USD. So another on and off ramp. And remember, PayPal already offers the ability to buy and sell crypto via the PayPal app as well as the Venmo app. So this is huge, guys. Once again, further validation, massive adoption here, very bullish. And, you know, one of the things I was talking about today and I was tweeting about it, we're seeing some big news items coming out here that it's almost priming for a pump. Right. And Bitcoin has been moving sideways for a long time. Kind of boring. It needs some sort of catalyst to drive it either up or down. So there's no guarantee which way it's going to go. We'll have to wait and see. But this news is almost looking like a primer for a move upwards for Bitcoin to continue its retracement. Now, some are calling for new all time highs this year. I hope it happens, but I'm going to default to how Bitcoin has played out historically. So here's a quote from Dan Schulman, the president and CEO of PayPal. The shift towards digital currencies requires a stable instrument that is both digitally native and easily connected to a fiat currency like the U .S. dollar, said Dan Schulman, president and CEO of PayPal. Our commitment to responsible innovation and compliance and our track record delivering new experiences to our customers provides the foundation necessary to contribute to the growth of digital payments through PayPal USD. And it continues here, the article, which and this is really insightful. It says, building the bridge between Fiat and Web three for consumers, merchants and developers, PayPal USD will be available to consumers, merchants and developers to seamlessly connect fiat and digital currencies as the only stable coin supported within the PayPal network. PayPal USD leverages PayPal's decades long experience in payments at scale, combined with the speed cost programmability of block chain protocols as an ERC 20 issued token on the Ethereum block chain, PayPal used or PayPal USD will be available to an already large and growing community of external developers, wallets and Web three applications can be easily adopted by exchanges and will be deployed to power experiences within the PayPal ecosystem. Folks, big things are happening. I hope you recognize what is taking place here right before your eyes and what's on the horizon. What's going to take place here? Game theory, expect more players to come out with their versions of the stable coins or their stable coin, and I tweeted about it. I expect the stable coin wars to heat up, folks. And I tweeted about this in October of twenty twenty two. My predictions about what's going to happen this year and I said, expect stable coin wars to heat up next year. It wouldn't surprise me if the U .S. government was to select like Circles USDC for their digital dollar. And right now, Tether is the largest stable coin in the market. USDC is the second largest. But boy, expect P .Y. USD to jump up there because PayPal has millions of customers and they can easily get a lot of adoption overnight right in a very short period of time. And they have a trusted brand. People recognize it. They will want to use it. So huge, huge news. And one of the things I tweeted about is I'm curious if Elon Musk, he's going to create a stablecoin for X. Some people said he said he won't do that. But look, he could change his mind or he's going to use PayPal's stablecoin, given he was one of the founders of PayPal. That's where his pedigree is, right? Payments. And that's what he's trying to do with X. So this is has a lot of implications, guys, and very bullish for the market. Here's what Patrick McHenry, the House Financial Services chairman, one of the gentlemen who put out crypto regulations and much more. He said this announcement is a clear signal that stablecoins, if issued under a clear regulatory framework, hold promise as a pillar of our 21st century payments system. So big statements there, folks. Now, Chainlink God, many of you may follow this handle, did a great summary on why this is a big deal. So he said he did a whole thread. He said, why does PayPal launching a stablecoin P .Y. USD on Ethereum matters? First, P .Y. USD shows there's a clear demand from financial services companies to tokenize assets on blockchain. Tokenizing dollars is the most straightforward asset to tokenize and is directly relevant for payment processors like PayPal. PayPal has a majority share of online payment processing with 40 million plus transactions processed per day, over 400 million plus active users globally and 30 million plus merchant accounts. PayPal launching their stablecoin legitimizes crypto Web3 and stablecoins for normies and regulators. The fact that PayPal is issuing P .Y. USD on a public or the public Ethereum blockchain instead of a private PayPal chain shows the power of network effects. Folks, that is key. It goes back to what we've talked many times about and even I've shared thoughts from David Schwartz of Ripple. Wall gardens, you know, they're they're fine, but don't expect the public and people to use it, right, because it's just another centralized ledger. And we've seen JP Morgan try it with JPM coin. But who the hell is going to want to use it? It's a wall garden. So private blockchains will exist. That's fine. You can do your private blockchain, but that doesn't mean it's going to get mass adoption. And as Chainlink got highlighted here, network effects, Metcalfe's law, right, folks, the more adoption a network gets, the more participants, more builders, the stronger it becomes, the more valuable it becomes. So he said here, no doubt they will expand to other chains as well as other stablecoins have to obtain more market share. So we know USD and UST together, you know, they're on multiple blockchains. Expect P .Y. USD to do the same thing. He said the market cap of all stablecoins is over one hundred and twenty two billion dollars, peaking at one hundred and eighty billion a year ago. While amount circulating has downtrended during the bear market, it has held up much better than the price of most tokens or total value loss of most decentralized applications. The demand is sticky and P .Y. USD could be a major growth factor. Stablecoins are fundamentally a superior version of fiat, digitally native, programmable, low fees, fast settlement, zero borders, permissionless to transact in. Is this just the very beginning of PayPal stepping into Web3, which shares many of the same properties? Folks, I think so. I think they're going to do a lot more. So he continues here. But I want to just share some some of the thoughts. You know, this is a pretty long thread. So bullish news, bullish news for the market, whether you hold Ethereum or not. But I hold ETH. I've been holding ETH for a long time. I diversify. My number one holding is XRP. My number two is Bitcoin. My number three is Ethereum. And I stake ETH and I earn passive rewards. So great news here. Now, folks, speaking of Ethereum, we got some big news. We all know Bill Hinman and Jay Clayton did the backroom deal with Ethereum folks, Joe Lubin and Vitalik. Right. And Ethereum got the free pass. It was through the speech of Bill Hinman that Ethereum was said to not be a security. And that, of course, gave it an unfair advantage over the rest of the altcoins in the market. But we know this was an under the table backroom deal corruption. Right. I don't want to rehash all the details. You guys all know this. Well, Stuart Aldorati of Ripple, he's the chief legal officer. He tweeted out something very interesting today. And I couldn't believe it when I first read it. But he said, Crypto critic, ex SEC official John Reed Stark, who has blocked me, by the way, says there should be an investigation to Bill Hinman. This is a this is broader than Ripple. There could potentially be serious conflicts of interest by a government official. An investigation will either put it to rest or hold folks accountable. So even someone who is a critic of crypto, John Reed Stark, and he blocked me because I used to I share a lot of facts with him. He didn't like that. But even he can agree. Yeah, this does not look good. Yeah, of course. Anybody with a normal sense of logic and reasoning can see something is fishy here. And I think Jay Clayton should be investigated to these two corrupt government officials. Obviously, they're not at the SEC anymore. And it's funny, I often criticize both of them, especially Jay Clayton. He's the chairman. He rubber stamped everything. Then he filed a lawsuit against Ripple and ran out the SEC door the next day. Then he goes to work for a crypto company. These guys are scumbags. Right. They're supposed to have integrity. And serve the people. They're there, you know, working in government, using the taxpayer dollars. And yet they're doing all kinds of nonsense like this. But guys, I hope I hope Congress and some folks in the House Financial Services Committee take action and they, you know, go ahead and launch an investigation. I think we deserve that. And look, big shout out to John Deaton, who's been beating the drum on this for a long time and as well as the people at Empire Oversight, the nonprofit whistleblower organization, which did a lot of FOIA requests, sue the SEC to get the Hinman documents, emails and much more. And of course, we saw they were colluding with Joseph Lubin and Vitalik and much more. Right. So John Deaton did a full post on this. I'm not going to read through everything, but essentially saying, look, if crypto is going to stand back, Mifrides and Alex Mashinsky, we need to be held accountable. The cleanup includes the unelected bureaucrats who sold out. Well put, John. And look, people call John a scammer. They called him a liar. They call him a conspiracy theorist. But he was right all along. And the folks at Empire Oversight got a lot of the information, all the facts that we were looking for. And we know a lot of people who were attacking John were those trying to cover it up because they knew what happened. But the truth will come out. Everything done in darkness will be brought to light, folks. So I'm hoping Congress launches an investigation in order for us to get that. We have to keep using social media. We have to keep contacting a representative. So if you're not on Twitter, please get on Twitter. Follow me. Start retweeting John, myself, all these all these facts that we're putting out there to get the attention of Congress and to hold these folks accountable. Now, let's move ahead. Ripple and Rocky Mountain Institution are proud founding partners of Centragate Earth, a new open data platform that brings increased transparency, trust and integrity to carbon markets. Centragate powers the next evolution in carbon markets. So the TLDR here is there's a lot of tokenization on blockchains around carbon credits. And Ripple is working with different folks to get this done. And of course, the XRP ledger will be a solution for for these folks to do that. You know, they highlight that here in the article. Ripple, for example, they said Ripple and other industry players recognize that blockchain can be a catalytic tool for helping global carbon markets reach their full potential. As its core, blockchain enables more efficient transactions. Unlike proof of work blockchains, the open source blockchain technology that ripples that powers Ripple solutions, the XRP ledger is natively sustainable, requiring low amounts of energy and no cryptocurrency mining. The XRP ledger is the first major blockchain to achieve net zero status through the purchase of renewable energy for its remaining energy use. So pretty clear the goal here and with tokenization. So that's big unlocking new utility and use cases, folks. Now, we got news here of a new crypto fund about to launch. So CF Private Equity is building a blockchain fund. It appears to be the first fund dedicated specifically to blockchain investments for the business. So we're seeing all the TradFi hedge funds, investment firms, they're launching crypto funds. Of course they are. Right. We saw it with Paul Tudor Jones and Stan Druckenmiller and the list goes on and on and on. So the firm known as Common Fund Capital, prior to a rebrand at the beginning of this year, has hinted at its crypto interests since 2018. But CF Private Equity, according to an SEC filing from the beginning of August, is preparing to launch what appears to be the first fully digital asset private equity venture. The move is perhaps the most telling indicator yet of the firm's crypto ambitions. The vehicle's filing indicated an expected fund raise of one hundred million dollars. But it's possible the disclosed figure only pertains to the fund's first close. A spokesperson for the company declined to comment when reached. Folks, again, I know I ask this and I say this a lot. Do you see what's happening? Right. Watch what they do, not what they say. I see a lot of capital flowing in this market. I see building and adoption funds being launched, and that makes me very bullish. Now, let's end it with some news here. We started the podcast with some news about stable coins. Now we got some news around Huobi. So Huobi dismisses plunging stable coin reserves as FUD. Exchange spokesperson refuted claims that any team members have been detained by Chinese authorities. In my opinion, Huobi seems like a dying company. It's connected to Justin Sun, with Tron and much more. Look, I would stay away from Huobi, folks, and Justin Sun. I don't know what that dude is up to. I've just seen a lot of shady activity from him. So following speculation that Chinese officials detained some Huobi executives, the crypto exchanges stable coin reserves have dwindled as much as 34 percent in the past week. Local Chinese media reported that law enforcement detained at least three Huobi executives. Allegedly, some employees were sent an urgent notification advising them to depart the country at the earliest. Adam Cochrane, a partner of Sinem Hain Ventures, relayed information. He alleges came directly from a high ranking executive at Tron, stating that team members were facing a criminal probe tied to the activities associated with Huobi. So we'll see, folks. Things are not looking too good here. If you are a user of Huobi, I would highly recommend you be very careful here. You know, I would avoid this platform at all costs, guys. There's something happening here where there's smoke that expires, so please be careful. All right, folks, that's the news. Please be sure to check out my interview with Brock Pierce. He's a crypto OG and legend. Guys, we talk about everything. He's one of the co -founders of Tether. So, you know, he has great perspectives on the crypto market. Be sure to check out that interview as well. And let me know what you think about the PayPal news. I think this is very bullish for the crypto market. And we're going to see stablecoin wars heat up. We're going to see game theory play out other. Look, I wouldn't surprise me tomorrow if Amazon launch a stablecoin and they call it Primecoin, right? Because they already have Amazon Prime. Guys, the future is bright for this market. Ignore the FUD. Be prepared for the volatility that just comes with the market, but that swing, the swings that go very low also go very high, my friends, and it allows you to make money. But you got to be patient and you have to know when to enter the market and when to exit when there's blood on the streets and fair, you buy the dip dollar cross average when there's euphoria and everybody and your Uber driver and grandma are telling you about Bitcoin. That's the time to sell. We've we've seen this, right? If you've been here multiple times for multiple bull markets and bear markets, you know the deal. For those of you who are new, you got to put your emotions to the side. You got to spend time researching and educate yourself. That's super important. All right, folks, let me know what you think. Leave your thoughts and comments below. Hit the thumbs up button, hit the five star rating, and I'll talk to you all later.
Fighting for Food Sovereignty in Kenya and Uganda.
"Thank you susan. Leonida for being on the breaking green ceilings podcast. Today we want to talk about the implications of free trade agreements. On african women specially from food sovereignty perspective. But i will start with our standard introductory question here on the podcast. Which is what role has nature played in your life and i can start with the anita or interest wondering for that first. The iba the videos descends to nature because he document shower penalties or by the social food at of a economic committee's report i'm raised from finding community and finding for so we actually directed me when we're producing Another thing i'd like to talk for example when you're relaxing use nature of that alexa eastern To league or whatever he thought we offer meaningless. Nfl but so you're connecting with a natural acid and of course that aspects appreciation mitch Your ruin susan lesser very interesting question but just to say that we alive because later is alive and if we look after it looks to us just the same and i think in the last two years we have seen exactly what nature can do when they tell you that you need one hundred million to get about for sitting as a boxy jam when mitch as playing to you realize the narrative changes as what we are we are leaving it and it's accommodating us. I don't know if we're being kind too for that's another story but
Biden's Business Vaccine Mandate and the Legal Challenges It May Face
"Last thursday president biden announced sweeping vaccine mandates for four categories of americans workers in private companies. That have a one hundred or more employees. Most federal workers and federal contractors teachers and staff at federal programs related to education and finally healthcare workers at facilities that receive money from medicare or medicaid. All in all the mandates cover about one hundred million american workers. If they don't comply they could face getting fired. World's sarah weinsberg reports in some respects. Rebecca wasn't all that surprised by the binding administration's new vaccine mandate she figured the government would require federal employees and maybe even medical workers to get back sedated. But she was surprised. Her company got caught up in the requirements. Rebecca works for an appliance repair business in washington state. It has about one hundred thirty employees. Were not using her last name to protect her job. I don't think anybody thought that it would be mandated for private employers. Especially see i think. I am a little surprised on that. Rebecca doesn't want to get the vaccine. She and her husband had been struggling with infertility for the past two years. She's concerned about how it could affect her hormones. she also doesn't want to get it for religious and political reasons. I don't feel like the government should be telling us what her husband works at a hospital. So he's also affected by the mandate if the federal government is able to implement its vaccine requirements. They could both lose their jobs. So life is up in the air. But that's a big if says jonathan inward. He's an attorney who specializes in health law. Claims he says the biden administration mandates violate the constitution as well as federal law for those who have natural immunity. This likely violates the protection clause of the constitution it likely violates the tenth amendment and as applied to the states that would violate what's called the anti commandeering doctrine
Republican Governors Infuriated by Biden's Vaccine Mandates
"The new vaccine mandates that president biden announced last week will affect about one hundred million americans all told and while it seems that many americans agree with the president. There's also been a significant backlash with some gop. Governors vowing legal action and other top republicans calling for a public uprising. Margaret talev is managing editor for politics. At axios hi margaret hi. How striking is this reaction. We've seen especially over the past few days from republicans. The republican governors in states like florida and states like texas. They're responding to the gop base that is strikingly on the side of the the freedom not to be vaccinated the freedom to work in a place where your boss can't tell you what to do and it is that question. Mark about the most vulnerable districts for democrats that is really driving this push by republican politicians to jump all over joe biden for these mandates. The argument is that it is an issue of personal freedom or of medical choice. Of course americans who aren't comfortable with taking a shot have the right to speak out against it and have the right to resist. The question is what's the breaking point between free speech. You know civil disobedience and a threat to the nation a threat to national security violation of the law right and former president bush compared those threats to national security that you're talking about with the terrorism that took place on nine eleven at an anniversary ceremony and shanksville pennsylvania on saturday little culture overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's disdainful pours in their disregard for human life and their determination to defile national symbols. They are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them.
Biden Announces COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates
"Years on from nine eleven. Were battling another even deadlier adversary. The nation is now in the midst of a code outbreak. That's affecting every corner of this country.

If you're looking to get into automation for the first time zap here is the most used toll in no code automation and entire six and seven figure. Businesses have been built using this toll. The only issue with zapper is if you're building a business on top of it. The price can add up extremely fast. I have used an paid for zappia in the past.

I'm going to be covering today. Is integra mac. Integra is an incredible automation tool that is affordable and a more visual experience. They were recently acquired for around one hundred million dollars. Integra matters as sleek web-based no code automation tool that pairs with their mobile app for the ultimate automation experience. If you don't like how zappia displays the workflows as you build. I highly recommend trying out. Integra matt i personally use it and pay for it and i think it is fairly easy to use an extremely powerful in regards to what you can do. I think there's i think you can use integral matt. And we'll have more flexibility compared to like zap your but if your needs aren't that complex zap is still a great option. But i personally love. And i pay for integral about their starting plan starts at about nine dollars a month. So it's extremely affordable for makers that are looking to start automating some of their business processes. The third option is air table so as many of you know air table is basically google sheets on steroids and conserve as simple spreadsheet or the back end for a web app. You're building. They have an internal automation tool that connects to popular tools. You use like gmo slack. Google calendar as well as moving data within air table. People run entire businesses just using air table their automation tool. I use it personally for our company placed and they are necessary for our business to function as efficiently as it does. I highly recommend air table and with our business we do events right so logistically speaking that can be a nightmare. But because of air table and air table automations. It makes the process seamless. And yes i highly recommend for sure other notable automation tools include. Ui bakery parabola directional and if this if this then that i know that's another really popular it's not gonna go into too much but they are very very simple way to build basic automations disaster but even a level below
