Debt ceiling talks stuck on classic problem: Republicans demand spending cuts and Democrats resist
"Debt ceiling talks yesterday showed few outward signs of progress with Republican negotiators accusing The White House of wasting precious time in the bid to avoid a debt default. The lack of urgency here is apparent. GOP negotiator Patrick mchenry's criticism drew a fast response. There's a ridiculous statement for them to be making. From White House spokeswoman karine Jean Pierre. There's an urgency. We want to see this done as soon as possible. And while House speaker Kevin McCarthy says they're not there yet. I believe we can still get there and get there before June 1st. When the Treasury Department says America may run out of cash to pay its bills, triggering up perhaps catastrophic default. The GOP's insisting the government roll back spending next year, which is the key sticking point. McCarthy says negotiators are looking at creative cuts, all sides can accept Sagar Meghani, Washington.

I want to just get your big picture analysis in the last couple of weeks on Tucker's departure. You've been linking a lot to it. What are you seeing? What are you hearing? How should we think about this? Well, it's the defamation of Tucker Carlson. There's certainly trying. I caught the first ten minutes of your excellent open this morning talking about those text messages. Obviously, I saw that story on drugs last night. He's going big with it. It's funny, you know, drugs turns to the left, and now several years later, some people would argue sooner Fox News is kind of is turning that way. Obviously, someone is coordinating some leaks here. There's a great town hall story that has four or 5 videos, quote unquote, leaked Tucker Carlson videos from a media matters reporter on Twitter. So I would tell people to look at that, but it's all backfiring because this sort of leaked audio stuff leaked video from Tucker on his set before broad before, filming begins. They show that Tucker's a real guy. Regarding those texts, I'm with you a 100%. They did not show Tucker Carlson as a racist. Let's ask Simon at taba. The White House reporter who has been blacklisted by Karen Jean Pierre, ask him if he thinks Tucker's a racist. You know, you'll get a response that Fox News won't like.

U.S. Troops will only offer administrative support at border
"Listen to karine Jean Pierre, and the press secretary for The Pentagon, Brigadier general pat Ryder explaining to the country that these border patrol troops, these border troops are not going to do anything except be secretaries. Administrative assistance, they're just there to do administrative work. They're not going to actually have any hand in securing the border. Listen to this. These personnel will be performing administrative tasks like data entry and warehouse support. They will not be performing law enforcement functions or interacting with immigrants or migrants. For 90 days, these 1500 military personnel who will be sourced from the active duty component will fill critical capability gaps such as ground based detection and monitoring, data entry, and warehouse support until CPV can address these needs through contracted support. Military personnel will not directly participate in law enforcement activities. So look, and I want to be clear, the active militaries I just explained to one of your colleagues here is it's been done for more than two almost two decades now.

Yes, that's what I mean, just so everyone understands, and I'm sure you talk about this in the book, serenity in the storm. Kayleigh would come up. There are no good answers the way they were framing the questions. They basically say, you know, why did my grandma die Kaley, can you tell me? I mean, it's like, it's just, there's no good answers. Just walk us through that. You were the front lines of the most ferocious aggressive press campaign against any administration ever. This was election year. It was COVID. It was the country was changing in real time. And I thought you handled it beautifully. Walk us through that from your perspective. Charlie, I knew I needed to be better prepared than any member of the press. I knew I needed to do more research, more homework, have more answers called more department heads, get into the weeds myself. I'm not someone who gets talking points and goes out and says then. I'm someone to help create the talking points really important. I would go up and I would say things like, I fought and so did president Trump for schools opening for America's children. Set it AD nauseam at the podium. I would cite scientific data in support of the damage being done to America's kids. And in return, it doesn't matter what I said, how many footnotes I had.

"But I want to go to Derek who did look this up and Derek, can you confirm that, in fact, Joe Biden has taken more questions from children since being president than he has journalists. It does appear to be true, yeah, I'm looking for a more firm statistic, but we definitely know for sure that Biden has resisted taking questions from journalists from White House reporters. They've even had a whole dispute at one of the recent White House briefings with Korean John Pierre over that exact issue. And there's even analysis in the New York Post as well that when Biden was in Ireland, he was taking more questions from children. While he was in Ireland, then he was any of the journalists and reporters. Even in Ireland, he was doing it in Ireland as well. So just yesterday and while he was in Ireland.

You said you have to say gender dysphoria. Absolutely incredible. Okay, so they have a gender dysphoria. So here we are. Cut 95. Karine Jean Pierre. Yeah, we got hit with a hate language spike because I said that trannies have mental delusions. Can't say that and you can't say tranny either apparently. Then I'm participating in hate language for saying a fact. It is a fact that a trans person is under a mental delusion. They believe something that is not materially true. In fact, here's the definition, I looked it up in the break. I said, what is a mental delusion? At the illusion is a false belief based on an incorrect inference. About reality that is firmly sustained, despite what almost everybody else says and believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. How is that not a delusion? Your chromosomes say that you're a girl, but you say you're a man. People can obviously see that you're a girl but you say you're a man. How is that not a delusion? It's the textbook psychological textbook definition of a delusion. But Google doesn't like it because I actually found a wrinkle. I think I found a glitch in the matrix because delusion was very effective. People really liked it, but you can't say that anymore.

What Are the Real Reasons Behind the Recent Spate of Shootings?
"This is just tragic what happened in Kentucky and there is no reason for these kinds of things to be happening. But they're happening a lot. And I think you're going to stand back and ask yourself, why? Why? Given that the Biden administration has apparently done more than anyone to control guns as karine Jean Pierre, the spokesperson for the Biden administration, so conveniently pointed out in her press conference, listen. President in his first two years of the administration has done more has done more executive action than any other president. When it comes to gun violence, when it comes to stem and gun violence, when it comes to protecting our communities or schools, and so he's taken action. He's taking action over and over again too. If Joe Biden is doing so much on gun control, why doesn't anyone ask themselves maybe it's something else? Maybe it's not just about legislation to protect everyone from guns. Maybe it's something else fundamental in our society right now that's going on. Maybe it could be that people were locked up for a couple of years as a result of COVID, some people nearly crazy, maybe. It's a result of these algorithms on places like TikTok that are really trying to showcase the worst of society, including violence. Remember, there was that article by the New York Post reporter who posted a 13 year old boy, and she went on TikTok and wanted it immediately feed her, but lots of sex and lots of guns.

Justice Thomas reportedly took undisclosed luxury trips
"The White House refrains from weighing in on reports that Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas did not disclose luxury trips taken as the guest of a Republican mega donor. Perhaps mindful of the power Supreme Court Justices yield The White House did not want to comment on ProPublica's reporting published Thursday that nearly every year for more than two decades justice clarence Thomas has been taking trips subsidized by Dallas billionaire real estate magnet Harlan Crowe. Without reporting them on required financial disclosure forms, White House spokesperson karine Jean Pierre. That's something for the Supreme Court to speak to. I'm just not going to comment on this at this time. The ProPublica report catalogs trips to crow's private lakeside resort camp top ridge in the adirondacks, and aboard crow's private yacht. Crow says he and his wife have been friends of Thomas and his wife since 1996. One trip to Indonesia in 2019 would have cost more than half a $1 million if Thomas had chartered the plane and yacht himself. Under a judiciary policy guide consulted by The Associated Press, Supreme Court Justices do not need to report food lodging or entertainment received as personal hospitality of any individual if it is at their personal residence or that of their family. But the exception is not supposed to cover the substitutes for commercial transportation and other kinds of properties like those owned by a holding company.

The Garden Question
"pierre" Discussed on The Garden Question
"Feeder, which are nocturnal. But just knowing that there are billions of creatures out there working to energize our third of an acre plot of this great big planet that we have been instrumental in encouraging and building these natural populations completely soothes my soul. Our third of an acre does make a difference as Doug Ptolemy would say that each and every one of our properties is attached in the quilt of this big giant earth. I know we all make a contribution to feeding our souls and supporting this fragile ecosystem. It's supports my soul. Give us a quick tour of your guard. Our garden's not symmetrical. It's a third of an acre. There's about 800 ft² of turf. There's stones. There's rustic Cedar structures. It's planted with native plants, exotic plants, unusual and collected specimen plants. It's a little bit of a zoo, but it's a very designed zoo. So the specimens don't look random. It's not a collection. It's definitely a designed garden. There's a treehouse that stood over 17 years now in crown of a sweet gum tree. Tiffany top of the roof is about 25 feet up. The view from the treehouse deck provides a good overview of most of the garden. There's annuals, there's a vegetable garden. They're spaces to relax outside. There's a whimsical little shed with a special little roof and a little finial on top. There's an arbor with roses. There's roses along the vegetable fence. There's something blooming really in all seasons. There's textures. And after 23 years, it's sort of becoming stabilized now. Makes it easier to care for. You put in a garden, it takes time to really get it to be stable and that there's this homeostasis that's going on. And that at least is good for the aging gardener. It makes it a bit easier to care for it because even though it's only a third of an acre, it's intent. It does need attention here and there. What did the garden teach you last year that you're going to apply this year? I get reminded every year that even for professionals, it makes a lot of sense to have a plan, a design and start from that as opposed to just winging it because you think you don't really need a design because it's in your head and you see it and whatever. I can lead to bases creation that you're not already happy with later. You're like, you know, I wish I had sort of that a little more. Now I've got to redo it. Starting with the plan on paper is always a good idea for anybody. That you really need to keep plants and hedges and topiaries and things that need annual pruning to a manageable size that you can reach because while I don't really feel old, I realize that I am getting older. You realize that the hedge takes pruning and that you have to be able to reach that hedge. Some plants, if you say, oh, I'm going to let it grow and then all of a sudden you say, oh, that's too big. You can't go back and prune it back like a Leland cypress hedge, for example. If you only want it to be 6 feet wide, you've got prune it at 6 feet wide when it gets to be 6 and a half feet wide. You can't have it be 12 feet wide and then go back in and say, oh, I'm going to prune it back. Keeping things to a manageable size. If you're not able to manage something, then you have to realize, can I afford to pay someone to manage that? And if I can afford to pay someone to manage that and keep that in size, is there actually someone out there that can prune that and manicure that with proper horticultural techniques that I'm going to be happy about? Do you have a plant that you're in love with this week? I have my eyes on the edge worship crescenta that's on the hour back patio. And although it's not fully bloom yet, all the buds are set and what a weird plan that is. I mean, I don't know if you're familiar with it, but it's just, it's gorgeous, the leaves are amazing. It looks tropical in the season. And then in the winter, of course it drops its sleeve with a structure itself is. Very special. And then you've got these buds that get said that are white and fuzzy, and of course then the plant blooms. In the dead of winter, I was beautiful yellow flowers, the most common one and was a smell that's just divine. So it should pop up in bloom very soon. So I'm keeping an eye on that. I'm currently in love with this little a chorus graminis minimus Arias that we have planted in a trough. It's a tough little number. It takes some sun where it's moist. It takes it dry.

You're determining what the puzzle is going to look like, but you're still trying to fit all these pieces and find the branches and the everything to put them together and come together. We don't know what the puzzle is going to look like. And we let it evolve. We know we want a nice picture at the end, but we don't know what that picture exactly is. And for that reason, it just loves to let the work evolve because it needs to feel good. It needs to flow, otherwise that means I'm not in the right direction. Go with like a loose concept and then see where the pile is going to take you because that's the thing is you get a pile of wood to work with and you've got to make do is what's in the pile. The neat thing about Cedar is that it has a very human quality about it. The wood, it feels muscular. There's life in each one of those. When he creates something out of the Cedar, it's perfect as it is that the natural material of the wood really shines through and gives it personation to whatever structure he's built. Why do you prefer to work in the natural materials for your heart scapes? Or maybe that comes from my French origin where we're surrounded over there by old things that old villages and walls and old fences and gates. I've just always loved that when I was growing up, one of my playground was an old 13th century ruined castle. I'm always loved the NBN's that emanate from the spaces which are more than the sum of their part really literally. When I came here in the states, so now 25 years ago, despite the fact that we're living in beautiful and applies and it has a mystery to it, as far as the U.S. goes, I was still missing that kind of oldness of faces we are working in our space we wanted to create. So I think using those materials kind of help me get back to something that I truly love and that speaks to me now notice you do a lot of stonework. In fact, one of the particular were you built like a sofa out of stone. How did that come about? We did a design for this sloping garden under a grove of sweet gum trees, which was always tricky. And she needed a retaining wall was sort of like a dead corner if you just put a wall there and the main thrust of the garden was to go right through it to the front door, but we needed to create path systems through these other parts of the garden. It was just an embellishment of a retaining wall. What do we do with that that doesn't just become this wall in the corner, but it becomes a place to go, then Pierre used his brilliance and created a stone couch. We need to add that when you're looking at the couch, just a little bit further up the slope, there is a meditative labyrinth that's made of about 20 tons of stones with a ruined wall around and that was kind of one of these funniest assignment where I don't know people have trusted us for a long time to do these kind of crazy projects, so that was an assignment. I guess maybe it's us that are able to convince the client that that's a good idea. The lady wanted a meditative labyrinth, and she wanted it surrounded by a wall, came to that idea, but we said, what about a ruin more plant creeping out of little pockets and say, I love it. So there we are. And we built a meditative labyrinth surrounded by the ruined wall with little plants creeping out at like a big size. I mean, the diameter was probably 30 feet of the librarians, customer loved stones, so maybe that's why we were able to convince her that a stone couch was a good idea as well. Those are rather sizable stones. Some of them look like they could be three tons or more. Are you moving those around by hand or machine? Or how do you do that? Unfortunately, I've been like everybody else, young and stupid. I moved a lot by hand, then I realized that a better kind of stop that we invested in a little machinery called a dingo, tiny little machine that can fit through backyard Gates, 33, 34 inches all you need, and you have a bunch of attachment that you can add. You can do footings with that, you can have a bucket, the forks, you can leave 2000 pounds with the one that I have, it's proven very, very handy, and I love it. I just wish that I bought that 20 years ago. But you built the stone seating couch by hand. That was being smarter than a stone. What is your most favorite garden structure that you've ever built? I'll say that the trio is pretty up there. No pun intended. We've built 50 by 50 Cedar fence for a vegetable garden that becomes pretty impressive. I'm sure you have the same problem in Georgia. He and Maryland, a lot of problem with deer, these fancies I would have said, that's really their main goal, protect the vegetable garden from geo browsing. We've done a couple of ruined structures so that big labyrinths I was talking about, but then also just encasing a gate to give it some special ambience. All made out of Cedar. Yeah, that's beautiful structure, to public garden, beautiful wood, and the ceiling, they stripped all the bark off of the Cedar and made a pattern on the ceiling with the same dimension, Cedar pieces. That was beautiful. And then we've made a Trump lie, which was a beautiful folly that homeowners had this dead end. It's a little shed. They would access from the other side. You want the garden to be a circuitous route. The pathway around the house will they just didn't want to take that shed out, so it's like, what do we do with this dead end? It's always when there's these tricky design challenges Pierre sprain ticks in and made a Trump lie, so there's a ruined wall and a mirror. Years ago, we had a new employee in that first day of work. We arrived at the garden and we go in the back and we sit down and eat lunch, there's a little table right there. And he's like, all right, I'm gonna go back and get my gloves. Gets up from the table and he starts to walk, wanted to walk through the Trump line. He didn't even realize that it was a mirror. They have to put those in the right position to be fully effective, but that's a really wonderful folly. The key there is to orient the mirror, just tilt it enough so that when you walk to it, you don't see yourself in the mirror. So we had built a walkway in front of it, which leads your eye to the mirror, but also reflects the walkway reflects in the mirror, so it looks like it goes through. So yeah, that was fun. That was fun. Yeah, I got tricked by one of those one time. We were putting some saw it in this backyard around a pool, and on the fence they had a mirror, and I kept looking over there and I said, well, those people next door have got a really interesting garden. And I looked at that thing probably 30 minutes for a real host. It was a mirror. Mirrors are great. Great game. You incorporate other things in walls too. I know y'all are into antique troughs really big time. Could you tell us about those? It's kind of a new venture along with love for old stone and everything of that nature that come from France or old countries, I've personally followed in love and I think Nancy did fall in love with those things too. We've started to import some of these troughs from France and what they are. They are just like old objects that were used to feed the livestock, provide water and or food. It's very neat thing about them is that they were all hand carved in one chunk of granite or basalt or sandstones, farmers were doing it like a couple of maybe more centuries ago just by hand. The thing that's very amazing is that each one of these stone is unique, you never find two like they

That's question at the garden question dot com. Please remember your writings and reviews are always appreciated. Nancy and Pierre, how do you approach garden creation as a wife and husband team? Garden creation for us as a husband and wife team. It's kind of like a 20 four 7 activity because we're just passionate about what we do. We might be eating dinner and realize, oh, this is the greatest idea we might be visiting another garden and say, oh, look how we could implement in that particular property. It's an everyday thing we're in the thick of it all day long every day, which is good and not really bad, good thing is that we're in the same rhythm, so when we're in the heat of spring, we both come home at the end of the day. We're exhausted, we're exhilarated. We're inspired, then that discussion carries through dinner, which is good and bad because then you're kind of working all the time because that discussion carries on through dinner and afterwards and in the morning. It's good and it's bad because you don't have someone to stop talking about work. It's fun. Exhilarating, do you have a husband or a spouse that wasn't in your same field of work, you'd get to that busy time of year and they wouldn't be able to relate necessarily to your exhaustion level. A second that totally and I will just add on a different node that we're very fortunate that we are very complementary in our skills and everything so that makes the relation very positive and more fruitful. I'm sure everybody wants to know your story of how young that. Okay, all right. So we actually met in England and it was a total totally random thing. I was traveling. I was done with my college studies and I had to head towards the military army for a year, like at the time, every man had to do, and I decided to go to England and just find a job and just spend a few months before going back to France to the army. And it happens that I was living in a use of stale near my work near the British museum. And one day, I guess, Nancy arrived and to stay in the same user state, and she mistakenly got sent to the wrong room. When she got to the room, she met a fellow Australian. There was in there and told her, because at that time, room were mixed in England and user styles. Told her that there were no beds available, so it must have been a mistake. So she turned around, went back to the front desk, got a situation straightened out. And that could have stopped here except for the same evening. She ventured out, I guess, to get a B at a local pub and what did she find there, but the French guy and the Australian shadow that she had just met in the afternoon. And so the fellow recognized her as she found a room, and if everything was okay, she was traveling alone, so she was more than happy to start a conversation. And that's how we got introduced. And I guess you could say there was a love at first sight. No, then we started talking about recycling and my heart went. So he captured you with the recycling, huh? Yeah. What would that thought? Well, that's better. I thought it was going to be some favorite plan or something y'all were drooling over or something. And then we had a long time relationship because then I did go back eventually to France and went to the army and that lasted for years, so we had a basically a year and a half long distance relationship. We worked at getting myself a Visa so I could come work here and came here first on a tourist Visa and eventually came here on the URL Visa and then after that we figured out if we could work together and still get along then we could get married and so that was 23 years ago and we are still happy married and working together. Well, congratulations. 23 years. So Nancy, why were you in England? I was designing gardens already since I graduated from college and started this company also had other full-time employment at other horticultural institutions. At that point, I was struggling in my designs to come up with creative and attractive hardscaping materials because a lot of things around here were concrete and maybe stone was beginning to be incorporated for your regular backyard gardener. It was hard to really study good garden structure. So I thought I like beer and they speak my language, they're known for wonderful gardens, went to the library, did a lot of research, took off on my own to go to England to study garden structure, really just wanted to get a feel for all of that. Bring it back and apply it to my work in designing here. In Maryland. Well, how do you create a garden with soul? First need to mean it from the soul in order to be able to create it with a soul. Garden was a soul means the garden that is not hollow. It's a garden that, as an ambience to it, creates emotion when it's visited when it's looked at, it's a garden that has personality, garden that's going to surprise people that's going to make them think and reflect long for something. It's going to make them want to garden more, want to create something interesting. Seeing it's all these things. To garden that there's a personality you can do a garden design that is plant and hardscape. But then it's always nice to add other objects and other elements that exemplifies the personality, whether trying to tune into what the homeowner personality is about, you're adding ornamentation by the type of materials you use or whether it's the style of the containers statuary, what have you. The quality of that ornamentation can give a deeper soul or a more superficial soul. You can feel when you walk into a garden that someone that's passionate about horticulture has made that garden. You can just feel the sense of how the soil has been tended, how the plants have been planted, how the plants are oriented. I mean, you can give two different installers, just let's put it on a basic level like that. The same palette of plants. And even the same design, you can just feel it. It's a matter of the level of ornamentation, the quality of ornamentation, the spirit of the person that's creating of the people that are creating that, of course, time adds soul to a garden. Souls are born every day when you talk about a human, but it's the soul that's old that has more depth to it. At what part does French folly play into creating soul

"Tell me you talked about how you haven't read dalio's recent book, but the conclusion of the book, he's pretty bullish on China. The recent munger piece seems he's also kind of favorable towards how the Chinese govern because he didn't mince his words when he said why America should ban crypto. The last sentence of his short piece is short op-ed, Charlie Munger says, what should the U.S. do after a ban of cryptocurrencies in place? Well, one more action might make sense. Thank the Chinese communist leader. Pierre, you had some thoughts, maybe about incentives here around Charlie Munger that I thought were pretty interesting. Do you mind talking about that a little bit? Yes, sure, thanks. So Berkshire Hathaway wants to build natural gas, peaker plants here in Texas. And what peaker plants are is they turn on when there's a lot of demand for electricity and electricity prices go up. So that makes sense. The problem is that if you have lots of Bitcoin miners in Texas who are turning off and reducing demand when electricity prices go up, then you don't need the natural gas peaker plant. And so as far as Charlie Munger and Warren buffet are concerned and Berkshire Hathaway, the Bitcoin miners are directly competing with their proposal to have natural gas peaker plants. And that would possibly explain why they have so much energy around it, so to speak. You know, normally at 99 years old, you're probably not thinking about putting an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, but here it is. So I think that there's a direct kind of conflict of interest there. And it's fascinating that the environmentalists are citing with Berkshire Hathaway and with natural gas, I would have thought that the environmentalists would be on the side of Bitcoin on this one, but I guess whoever pays them the most. They're up for auction. The other thing that I thought was interesting is that

"And so I'm going to have a pre mine and a pre allocation and all of this. Or it's kind of hubris of, oh, Bitcoin's poorly engineered, I can't fix it. Nobody can fix it. And we've got to start from scratch. Whatever it is, that it's actually great that those people have an outlet. It would be terrible if those people somehow felt like they couldn't get out of Bitcoin. So to me, the multiplicity of founder driven altcoins is a pressure release valve at the social layer so that Bitcoin can continue to be pure and highly toxic while other coins can flatter the egos of their founders. 100% and I think that's what makes it that's what makes that's what makes Bitcoin unique. That's what makes it special. That's what that's what sets it apart. And I don't think, I don't think, I don't think anything I don't think anything is going to match that to be perfectly Frank. Anyways, Pierre. Well, I just want to add one more thing, sorry. I know we might be getting to time, but this is an important lesson for bitcoiners, which is that, look, satoshi left, Bitcoin was fine. If you leave Bitcoin, Bitcoin will be fine. Don't think that you're so important that Bitcoin depends on you. Which is one should humble you, but also give you a sigh of relief, right? It's okay. You don't have to you're not like an Atlas holding the world on his shoulders. There's a very deep bench of talent in Bitcoin. And you don't have to feel like, hey, you need to get everything done and do everything yourself. And, you know, the Bitcoin is going to fail without you. So a combination of humility, but also that don't put too much pressure on yourself. A 100%. Here, it's been an absolute honor. Thank you so much for joining me on simply Bitcoin IRL.

"pierre" Discussed on Simply Bitcoin
"No. It's maybe it's a matter of time. Maybe they haven't come knocking yet, but we shall see. Pierre, one of the things that I think spooked a lot of people in the community and I wanted to get your take on that based on your experience and how long you've been in the industry is the tragic news news that Luke dash, right? He had apparently he was hacked. He did make the claim that his coins were in cold storage, what do you think the lesson is there? What can people take from that? And most importantly, are people's coins safe in if they store it correctly with their hardware wallets. Yeah, so I don't know all the facts. I don't know that anyone knows all the facts in this case. From the outside, it seems as though Luke had developed his own custody solution in-house. He'd rolled his own approach to custody and I think that's. All too common, especially among folks who have a lot of experience with computer security and with software and hardware. That from their perspective that they can build something that they can trust because they are the ones who built it. And they are not having to trust the third party. I think the problem with that approach is the lack of peer review and kind of third party input, especially so for example, the hardware wallets out there on the market, the major ones, right? Ledger trezor cold card, they have gotten a lot of attention from security researchers who are looking for vulnerabilities. It's a big badge of honor in the security industry to file a vulnerability on a hardware wallet. Because it's extremely hard. So when I think about the contrast between rolling your own custody and using an off the shelf commercially available, tried and true, you know, approach like a hardware wallet
"pierre" Discussed on Simply Bitcoin
"That in order to buy Bitcoin, one has to start generally the path that people go through is setting up and securing an exchange account. And then they feel like they have enough economic exposure to Bitcoin, and they don't follow through on setting up that hardware wallet. Maybe that will change in the future, it would be really cool if the default path was like that you buy a hardware wallet and then from there you buy Bitcoin. I know that some of the hardware wallet manufacturers now bundle in the ability to buy Bitcoin into their desktop software that they connect. And it might be what the angle that swan's going in with their acquisition of Specter. So that's really cool. Now, yeah, I'll just leave it there before I keep rambling. No, it is a fascinating conversation because, you know, you have, for example, not only swan seems to be heading in that direction, right? Casa, right? But they started in the opposite direction. They started with a multisig, type of solution, collaborative custody. And then they're like, hey, why don't we just add Bitcoin purchases? And then unchain seems to be falling down that rabbit hole as well. So all coming to the same realization of making it as easy as possible for the user, you know, with the click of a button to at least take advantage of the security benefits of multisig, but without jumping through these hoops, right? And I think the reality is, okay, for opti, producer in the background, you know, Pierre myself, okay, cold card, let's do it, right? But I think for the average person, it's specifically the people that have spent the majority of their lives in the Fiat matrix. I would make the argument Pierre that sending a wire is more complex than taking self custody, but crossing that initial bridge could seem daunting to a lot of people. Does it worry you at all? What I call the self custody aspect because the reality is that the way that change is individuals. If enough people, if people don't do it, I think it's just a continuation of the system that we've lived for so long. They manipulate it. As the case with FTX blowing up, they were selling Bitcoin, they didn't have. So does that worry a little bit. The self custody aspect. And I know there's been solutions like and maybe you want to talk a little bit about that as well. Yeah, so I just see it as with many other parts of Bitcoin that it's antifragile. So if people F around, they find out. Leave their coins, Celsius, FTX, BlockFi, whatever. They find out why they weren't supposed to do that. So I'm not really worried about a situation where this problem is spiraling out of control and nobody's holding their own Bitcoin.

And you'd begin this journey as a restaurant owner and then eventually a cookbook author and from what I understand for your first cookbook, you went to Senegal to research ideas for the book. And I guess during one of those trips you rediscovered this grain called fonio, which you had eaten kind of rarely as a child, right? Yeah, so I had it for you on rare occasions when my parents would take me to visit my grandparents in the south of Senegal. So fonio is grown in that region in the south in its Casa Mars and those are like the four new areas of Senegal, but in Dakar, where I grew up, there was no for you. So I never had four new growing up. So I'm now writing this book many years later, and we spent time with the women of my family really. This was where I was getting the inspiration and I wanted the book to be about that. And as I'm traveling in the south of testing all these different flavors and the phone you came back and it hit me and I'm like, oh wow, this grain is so delicate. And in that part of the Senegal, they still consider it they call it the most delicious grain of all grains, that's like how they see fonio. So I need to write about this grain. I need to bring this grain. I need to even include it in my menu. We should promote, just stop and describe phony 'cause I said this before we started recording that I have made it.

"Just doing a job that I liked doing. But now I was free and I was free to become a cook and let a chef. Pierre, from what I have read, I mean, you were trained in European cooking styles, French, Italian, but in many chefs who are trained in European traditions, but don't have European backgrounds. Go on to open restaurants that reflect their own identities and their own backgrounds. When were you able to start exploring that culinary side of your world? Well, it started really, it came organically. First of all, when I moved to New York, I was always craving for that food, the food I grew up eating. There was no restaurants really that serving that food. So at the restaurant at boom, the chef is interesting because he's doing a cuisine that's different. He's inspired by Southeast Asian cuisine and that's new in New York. We like in the early 90s with 90s and that cuisine has flavors that somehow taking me back home. There's lots of fermentation. There's lots of acidity. That freshness that and the grain and all that and at times went out was my turn to cook family meal. I would cook food for memory. But my mom used to prepare family, of course, is what is what the kitchen staff eats before they serve the customers. So one from the line is the one in charge of family meal. And when that's my turn, everyone was looking forward to it now because I got them used to this caramelized onion and lime sauce with chili over rice at the peanut sauce with cassava. I mean, I'm bringing those flavors now eggplants and or crying all that. And they're like, wow, this is different. This is cool. And then this should come as specials. That's how the ID studied to come into Mina, New York is calling itself the food capital of the world, but Africa is not in this world. I'm like, hey, no, this is going to be my mission. I'm going to start finding inspiration from that cuisine and bringing it in that never looked back. Eventually, the restaurant was doing so well. We opened a new branch in south beach, Miami, and guess what? They decided to send me to run that kitchen. Yeah. And I'm like, wow, this is amazing. I mean, I'm like completely shocked, but so excited because in addition to sending me to run the kitchen, I was told to even add some of the family meal specials into the menu. Into the menu. These were dishes like. You were using sweet potatoes and cassava and plantains and peanuts and chilies and exactly exactly you said the white Woods. Sweet potato cassava peanut sauce became my first dish and okra. And that one was so well received.

But at this crossroads moment apparently eugene melnyk reached out to him back on june nineteenth and pierre mcguire says they talked for several days and then the last five or six then only then did they bring pr dory on which i found interesting and then pr dorian said today that the conversations that he was involved with go back to may so the timelines are all a little interesting. But i do think if. I'm pierre dory on today. I'm wondering about it because this is a team that has done. The coaching thing they brought in plan b's for coaches. They brought in dave cameron. Who is eugene melnyk. Junior hockey coach he hand picked him. Debbie paul mclean's assistant and cameron eventually succeeded mclean and their two or three other examples. Just like that. Marc dickie boucher and so on and so forth and maybe even jack capuano right now because they said no carry-on of you can't go to buffalo to interview for their job. We need you here. I think he's the ready made successor to dj smith and things go sideways. So i'm a little worried if i'm pr doria today to be honest. Yeah listen the thing that kinda of bugs me is again. Taking nothing away from pierre. Okay guys going to get a shot. Which pierre mcguire the guy the guy's gonna get shot and you know like it or not Mcguire and everybody else. He's going to have to prove himself. Okay he doesn't come as a proven entity right so that can be good and bad right clean slate where we go. No no no history. Okay i mean the history does have a so far back. I mean. I brought it up earlier but but that's not right. That's not even considered that anymore. So so the guy gets his shot the other thing stevie is i'm taking that gig for sure if i'm pierre knowing how vocal i've been about wanting to get back in hockey at that level because if i'm successful and it's going to be hard right because the owners unpredictable so he's coming into what what could be you know. Talk to alfie. Chris phillips talked to some other guy. Front office guys right that we knew who are in that you speak to them right. It's like i can't get out of here. Fuck and fast enough so hopefully. That's not the case with here. So i i give marks but but stevie could also be a training ground to end up in one of thirty plus other teams right. Of course you know things go sideways for peer dory on the gm of the club. The team doesn't do well next year. Well it's not gonna look good on anybody dory on or mcguire so it behooves everybody to put their best foot forward and in all likelihood in the best case scenario would be that the sends continue taking steps forwards for the next two or three years..

We got history. I saw some People hitting me up today. So some guys say i i forget half the shit we did on the radio but i would like to see jimmy just to just to hear him once again. Call them pete was i. The only guy called him. Pete isn't peer. Serve another name for pete. I never heard say pedro or galarza. Sure so sure. Some of his friends did as well.

Great asset to the ottawa senators. Just a reset of the sense have brought in pierre. Mcguire i forget it's one of those dumb. Nhl titles senior director of player operations development yadda yadda yadda effectively. He's right the right hand. Man now appear dory on so you basically got the. Pierre's run on the show for the ottawa senators. And i think you would agree. That guy's savant when it comes to knowledge of hockey players in the game. Well i wouldn't predict he would get a gig like that. You know i kinda. I know over the years right. His name was always floated around about doing different jobs for different teams that he wanted to get back in the game. You know where there's smoke there's fire when we heard those rumors and i believed that that pierre was vocal about it i think back back in over over all those years when he when he came back on the scene as a broadcaster. You know he left. He left the game under a little. Bit of controversy. You you can look that up you know and and At harm i think for many many years Don't quote me on this. But but but that's the sense i got. I'm i know if you guys. I'd heard some stuff from players why he would might not get picked. It wasn't a real positive experience in his time in hartford. No they use the term. Use the term blackballed. You know that. He wouldn't be a that he would never get another gig. There were lots of gigs. That came up that. I think his name was in there and it just never happened but the guy you know the two things here stevie.

At a time when a very public reckoning with the sins of men had been taking place and so two further introduce this piece. I will simply read now from the translators introduction as it appeared in the dominican journal. Pierre thomas dole was born august fifth. Eighteen seventy imbo wien a small town in northern france to phoenix and marine dale.

Ninety six taking the religious name thomas he took up apostolate of preaching homilies and giving retreats blind from a young age. He was never able to write books all the works of his that we have today come from notes of his lectures homilies and conferences.

Franklin roosevelt address the nation series of radio broadcasts known as the fireside chef. His was to reassure the common man in our society would recover from struggle. Times what we're far from nineteen thirty and i. it was a different kind of fire worldly prostration. We offer a fresh conversation and they need another day. Another deep dive into this weird world from sunny san diego. I'm greg carl would and as much buzz as there is about. The ufo mystery lately. The reality is that some of our oldest written material from our deepest history about chariots of fire flying machines messenger from another realm and all the sorts of things. People are patiently waiting to have confirmed by the pentagon thousands of years later but it seems that at every turn some sort of academic royal or religious authority has been there to tell us that these stories and depictions are not what we think they are. And that's funny because so many positions of power have historically been framed as intermediaries between men in the heaven's kings pharaohs pope's it's easy to forget that context when you think about it. Can we really have it both ways. Maybe the people who occupy the seats of power throughout time quite literally are the agents of unseen forces ruling over humanity forces that realize the greatest power is to not be seen. And can we really expect royal families living lavish lifestyles of laziness and produce slippered popes. To rat out there multidimensional bosses. Well this is where my head's at. After reading holographic culture the five hundred plus page eight years in the making masterwork of today's guest pierce back. He's a guy. With a real knack for pattern recognition on top of being bona fide expert on ancient symbolism and etymology. His work introduces a new way to look at and understand. The ufo mystery through a completely new field called skaff allah jersey which is the study of angelic ships within religion and mythology in his latest book peer uncovers an infiltration of non human and humanoid beans a concealed power structure which forms the basis of the religious and philosophical traditions. He tells you where they come from what they want. And how these beans created humanity and control the culture through a parallel society. And it's grafted bloodline but pierre is no stranger to dense studies of deep material as he's produced a few other books and dvd's with titles like the murder of reality the seven degrees of symbolism and artifact are the roswell artifact we're definitely going hard and deep today so buckle up the angelina etymology decoder divine detective and skaff allah g scholar pierre setback welcomed the higher side. It's great to be on your show us so thank you very much for inviting. Thanks for being here. Yeah it's great to be on. That was a fantastic introduction. So thank you for really setting me up that that was introduction. Of course man. It's all in a day's work and i'm in a really good mood today. I really enjoyed your book. Thanks for sending it out to me. Of course it was a colleague of yours john. Peters who set this up for us. And i'm very thankful that he did. It's hard to really find the best entry point here but let me bring the audience up to speed with what john wrote to me. He said pierre's work show. Is that what we now call. Ufo's are real physical ships that can drop in and out of this frequency range. He shows that the occupants of overcome wave particle duality. They can exist as wave form and are called high spirits or take a solid particle form and are called high creatures. They may appear to be magical but it seems to all be done with advanced technology. Well i definitely came away feeling like you made a really excellent case for that and these would have been here since the beginning of the human story and still control the culture through the political and religious authorities that are the hybrids of the grafted. Bloodline is that right is that the thesis were working from today. Yes there's lots of different elements which you've just spoken them which we really need to unpack breath. Basically the book is called holographic coach. Were dealing here with a race of beings are deconstructed the mechanics of white foam reality so this basically means that they exist both within the spiritual range. This is why they're referred to as the ruak halloween. The high spirits. This is another term for the jin genesis or worm. Now the wormald sirkin is another word. Father seraphim which Angels essentially they can dematerialize. Then they can physically repair within this reality deaf. Aw referred to in. Shall we say duplicitous language on paradox colon. Which so the ruak. Hello in the high. Spirits can appear materialize as the allocate. Which is a high creature a living god again. This is polymorphic language and really we're dealing with polymorphic symbolism and this is really important when we're looking at the elo in which the high wounds the high winds these debts which originate from heaven so the fall when we're dealing with angels which is scatalogical tradition the study of jelly boats or ships within the classical religious tradition. When really dealing with the angelic tradition. This is the classical. Tradition classes to naval flakes this relates to that which is classified because this is a hidden tradition on this opportunity to the naval tradition. All the angelic tradition. So for example when we look up polymorphic symbolism we can see that the technology of malakand angel is a polymorphic word of malak which is a sailor. So we're dealing here with angelic sailors and this is why in the biblical traditions for example. Your waist both is described as law of the host now the woods saga which is an economic where we get the woods above from is related. That's melodic late saturday. Which is the military. So yeah wasabi. Is this military house but in particular. Ya savell specifies. A naval itinerants a naval house. And so we see that. There's a correspondence between samoa Above lot of the host sabah seven crew of a vessel tavora which is an arc. And this is really important. When we're describing the angels because the angels are seeing to be crew members of naval vessels and described as residing on these on jelly vessels which are known as the often wales. I i want to really make a point. Also about the angels in terms of that demarcation within their coat tradition because within their coach tradition you have to demarcations within the coal tradition. So you have knowledge which is given to mankind from non human.
