A highlight from Will Ripple IPO in 2024? SEC Ripple XRP Ruling with Linqto Ray Fuentes
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. With me today is Ray Fuentes, who's the Community Director at Link2. Ray, it's great to have you on, my friend. Tony, it's quite the privilege to be on your podcast, sir. I'm a huge fan. Thank you for having me. For sure. We obviously bumped into each other recently at the Ripple Proper Party. It was a real good time. Did you have a good time at the party as well? I had an amazing time, Tony, and it's so funny because when I think back of the event itself, all I could see is you wearing your famous, I love Gary t -shirt, Gary Gensler t -shirt. Just kidding, but it was great bumping into you, it was great bumping into the XRP community and the energy was high. We got to dance to Lenny Kravitz. That took me back to a really great time just getting dropped off at school by my mom because all we would do is listen to... We literally had a Lenny Kravitz CD playing for quite some time, maybe a couple of years of middle school into high school, but regardless, it took me back to a great time of just dancing with my mom and also she was even there at the Ripple Proper Party alongside. Oh, that's great. Yeah, so it was a good time and it was even... Some other takeaways are obviously bumping into you, DAI, Brad Kimes, Stu Alderati, and others from the space as well and where I'm going is it was really exciting to hear even Brad lean Garlinghouse in and talk about XRP Las Vegas 2024 and so kudos to Brad Kimes and his team for what I believe they're going to be hosting another successful conference in Vegas come 2024. So hopefully I have an opportunity to MC that like I did last year and maybe you'll be there this year, hopefully. Yeah, I'm hoping to be there. I couldn't make it this year due to some family issues, but yeah, I have it on the calendar and I'm definitely going to try to make it out and it's Vegas, so it should be fun. Yeah, it should be a really good time and it wouldn't be the same without you. So I'm looking forward to seeing you there, sir. Now, since we're on the topic of Ripple, with the ruling in Ripple's favor for the large part, XRP being declared a security in many different instances, was there a higher demand for Ripple equity, which is already something that's been on your platform, on the link to platform after that ruling, was there a higher demand? Absolutely, Tony, 100%, I mean, around even this time last week, if you were to look at link, if you did look at link to his website, we were hovering around 285 million in total member investments. Now fast forward to today, or even since the Ripple proper party, we're now succeeded past 293 million. Now I'm not saying all of that is generated because of Ripple, because it's not. We have thankfully a breadth of high quality private companies, including PolySign, Axiom Space, Zipline, Cerebrum Systems. So we're seeing demand for all of these companies in addition to Ripple, but definitely Ripple is driving the volume for that essentially, I mean, I think we saw about 10 million in investments since roughly around this time, even last week. So we are picking up steam, we are ramping up and we're definitely seeing the demand. So in regards to the lawsuit, XRP has, yes, been declared, thankfully, not a security and the SEC can appeal that. So right now, I think it's safe to say XRP is the only digital asset in the USA with legal clarity and I believe people are picking up on what's coming down the pike and it's an exciting time, not just for link to, not just for the XRP community, but I believe for crypto at large.

Breaking the Debt Cycle
"So, so what are, what are we doing? We're, we're predicting the worst and we're not prepared for it. What's happening there? I don't know. You know, I don't know that we're predicting the worst, but we're expecting the worst. That's what the survey said, right? Small business owners are coming up, coming up with these responses and here's the deal again, that, that research that we did also indicated that, you know, small businesses are the backbone of our economy of the U S economy. Now here's, here's a couple of things that shocked me. Small businesses account for 44 % of overall GDP. They account for 50 % of all jobs in our economy are jobs created and utilized in small businesses. And 90 % of all companies are categorized as small businesses in America. We are the backbone of this economy. And the problem is that unfortunately small business owners aren't getting the advice and the attention that they should be getting. And they're not prepared for these things that might be coming down the pike. Right. It's true. I know. I hear that. That's why I'm glad we're having this conversation because this is something that is empowering and that, that we can jump on. Right. So if someone's listening and they're hearing everything that you're saying, the thing themselves, okay, you know, I get it. Is there a, you know, like, is there a starting point? Is there a step that they can take today to start turning the tide in their business? Is there something they should look at? Is there, you know, what, what would you say? Well, so it's, it's hard because think of it this way. We've all been indoctrinated or it's been ingrained upon us to do things a certain way. And the things we've been doing are actually the things that are holding us back. Now here's the conundrum. I'm going to guess, Diane, when you woke up this morning, you didn't look in the mirror and say, I'm going to do my best to screw myself up financially. Right? Yeah. Now, is it, would it be a fair assessment to say that every move you made today and every move you've made in your life financially, you thought was moving you forward? Sure. Okay. If what you thought to be true turned out not to be true, when would you want to know? Now. And that's, so that's the deal. We've been, again, conditioned to, to accept as normal things that are not in our best interest. So it's almost like most are all, I'm not going to say everything, but most are all of the things we're doing with our money are holding us back. Right. Because it proliferates the system, but it's not to our advantage. Now here's the deal. If I wanted to get you to do something that was in my best interest, but not in your best interest, the best way for me to do that is to make you think that it was in your best interest. Right. I can give you an example. Let me give you an example. When you go to the bank and you want to get a mortgage, the fact that there's like eight or 10 different mortgage choices indicates that the bank makes more money on some mortgages than it does on others. Now, wouldn't it be to your advantage to find out which mortgage they make the least on and then, and then go that way? Because if the bank makes the least, that means you make the most, right? Yeah. It's a zero sum game. Right. But so again, the, the focus should be on you being in control of your money. Right. But how does the bank take your eye off the ball? We have been trained as a society when we're shopping for loans to use one criteria and one criteria only. When we shop for loans, what's that criteria? Uh, is it the rate or the monthly payment? No, it's the rate. It's the interest rate. So as soon as we start talking about interest rate, our eye is off the ball. So here's how the bank does it. You go to the bank. Now it's all about cash flow. So you go to the bank, you want to take out a mortgage and you say, you know, I want a 30 year mortgage. And then they show you the HUD statement and let's say the HUD statement is six and a half percent. And the bank shows you the HUD statement and you look, I'm borrowing $200 ,000 and I'm going to pay back $385 ,000 or whatever the number is. And you're like, Oh my God, I'm, I'm, I'm building a, I'm buying a house for myself, but I'm also buying a house for the bank. And the bank says, that's right. Now you want to get that number down, go to a 15 year mortgage. We'll only charge you 6 % and look, now you reduce the interest from 185 ,000 to 125 ,000 and look, we just saved you $60 ,000, but your payment went from, I don't know, let's say 1500 a month to 2100 a month. Now you just lost, you know, more than almost 40 % in additional cashflow and you walk out of there and you think, I really negotiated with them. I got the rate down from six and a half percent to six. And the bank is laughing at you saying, Oh yeah, we gave it to you our way. Right. It was in our best interest because we wanted to get that money back quicker. Right. And so that's the point, you know, and like I said, if you're in a race to get out of debt, all you're doing is sucking up your cashflow. All that's doing is just evaporating your cashflow. Yeah. Yeah. Now this is really Tim. I mean, this is great because it really, you're so right that we've been conditioned and trained to think about it a certain way and it is not serving us. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. This is so valuable. I'm so glad that you have spent this time with me. Will you tell the listeners how they can find you? Yeah. Yeah. So you could come our website.

A highlight from Unveiling the Allure of PK Lures with Curt Reeff
"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on! And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. Hey, I'm looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than you'd be talking about. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now, here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrow. Welcome to another episode of Radcast Outdoors. I'm one of your hosts, Patrick Edwards. And I'm David Merrow. It's good to be back in the studio and today we're because we get to have one of our sponsors on the show technically too because you're here as well. We get to have one of our sponsors on the show and of course one of my favorites just because I love the fishing side so much. So, Curt Reef, owner of PK Lures, welcome to the podcast, man. Hey, guys. It's always exciting to follow what PK Lures is doing because they're always innovating. Pat O 'Grady and the team that Curt has, they're always coming up with ideas and they're testing out things to help you catch more and bigger fish, which is one of the reasons I use PKs all the time. I'm a bigger fly fisherman. I always have been ever since I was young, but I have no problem picking up a rod and reel. I have no problem putting on bait. I have no problem grabbing a rifle when it's rifle season even though I'm a bow hunter, right? I don't discriminate. However, there's a couple rivers here in Wyoming that I tried fly fishing and tried fly fishing and asked the locals and asked the guides and asked the shops and got the flies and beat that water up and Patrick takes me down there and we throw a PK on and I'm killing some big trout, big fish, and having a blast doing it. He's working on converting me to typically the rod and reel and the fly rod now are always in the truck. And they're both great, but it is really cool. PK is always doing some cool stuff and I have a long history with PK, but still I got to say one of my favorites is the flutter fish. I catch fish everywhere on that thing. And guys ask me, me personally, friends, listeners of the show, and they, specifically the other two sponsors, which is High Mountain Seasoning and PK, they're like, you're paid to use it. You're paid to talk about it. You really like it. I'm like, I've told them several times. If I wasn't affiliated with him, I'd be using High Mountain Seasoning and just seeing the difference in putting any PK on, especially the Red Dot Glow, wherever we go, charge that thing up with a flashlight and catch some walleye at night. It's a blast. Yeah, exactly. So Kurt, it's really cool to have you on the show. Thanks again for sponsoring the show. We certainly love our PKs and we're using them quite often because we like to get out on the water. We're transitioning into that hard water season and PK has been known for a long time for the ice fishing gear. And so I was just wanting to have you on to talk about what's new and what's coming. But first, I think it's really cool for our audience to get to know you a little bit. So Kurt, tell us a little bit about where you're from and how you got into fishing. Yeah, I don't know. I'm a redneck country guy from North Dakota. I don't like being indoors. I got to be outside. That's what got me into this stuff. I graduated from this area. I'm out of Lytton, North Dakota. We're just north of the South Dakota state line. We are located on the waters of Lake Oahe. It's the heart of the Missouri River. It goes from down to the Mississippi. There's Lake Oahe, Lake Francis, Lake Sharp that all look up to it. We fish a lot of like structure, a little bit of everything. And right now there's still a good live bait like going on. These fish that we are targeting right now on the Lake Oahe portion are starting their fall migration from south of Mole Ridge down by Akaska, here in South Dakota. They start to transition to move up north around this mark where they're going to spawn next spring. We just did a big fishing tournament here on the Missouri called the Big Muddy. That was about two weeks ago. From then until now fishing has changed. There's been a good bite around the River Bay here. This last week there's been a ton of boats out. People are getting out. I'm looking to get down next Monday just to test out some different stuff and see what's going on. But if these fish keep migrating north, ice fish should be great. But yeah, I've got a construction business on the side that we do roofing gutters and siding. And as I spend my winters off, that's what got me going into PK. I met Pat here a couple of years ago. We took him up to Lake Whip and I was looking to do something as an investment I wanted to do. I had some ideas I to wanted do. And I ran him by Pat. I'm looking at maybe getting out of there. So we worked out a deal within a week or two. I basically bought the company. But from then PK started in 2009. Pat did a great job with it. He didn't have a lot of social media, internet skills. It was all basically word of mouth. Whatever he did, it was just word of mouth. I got into it and I'm not much better than Pat. I don't know a whole lot about computers and stuff, but we've been just testing out some new stuff. We started that ice fishing company. I fished the National Walleye tour competitively in the summertime. This year I got busy with my other job so I didn't get to do the whole schedule. I'm looking forward to doing the whole schedule at the end of the next year. We start out in Lake Erie and I'm actually going out there here in a couple of weeks to test out some new products. Now I really get an head start on pre -fishing. I'm just going to get out and do one more big open water trip, I guess. I'm going to be meeting my dad and brother out there. We're That's awesome. Sounds like a lot of fun. And one of the things that I've always enjoyed over the years is seeing some of the ideas that Pat has come up with. And I know you two collaborate quite a bit and Tim Jenny and all the guys. I'm like, what are we going to come up with next? It's going to be the new big thing. And I know the Ridge Rattler has been an important part of my arsenal over the last year and a half, two years. And I see that you're coming out with a smaller version of that for ice season, which is really exciting, especially for those of us like me who love to hammer the walleye and the trout through the ice. So can you tell us just a little bit more about that product? Yeah, being a competitive angler, I got a tie on a PTA, whatever I'm doing or for the pizza purpose of building a tackle company. I can go out and use what actually works and do as good as everybody else. But the idea was what PTA we're trying to do our own thing. We're trying to be unique in and making something that's not out there yet. If you go, I'm looking at something you think what's it's already been done. What can we do to make it better? Anything different with the PTA Ridge Rattler? We took our crankbait. We have what's called a Ridgeline Gen 2 crankbait. It's got ridges on the outside. Those ridges give it a different vibration as it travels through the water. And if you want to trigger fish, you basically need three elements. You need noise, flash and vibration. If you can get one of those elements into something that's probably going to catch fish. Although, a bare hook will catch fish. Don't get me wrong. You don't always have to have something pretty and crazy out there. It can be very simple. But we took that design of the PK Ridgeline crankbait and downsized it into a lipless crankbait. In doing so, I like to use a lot of lipless cranks. Like I started off with Live Target and those are very light. They're hard to use during open water because they don't have a lot of direction of going down. They kind of jig and they do their thing. It's a cool product. They almost got some cool stuff with the light. They just don't drop fast. I was looking for something I can use for open water and ice fishing. So what we did, we added extra weight to the front. We called it a weight forward design. By doing so, that creates a fast drop alert. And we kept those ridges on the side. Those ridges cause vibration. When I'm out there jigging it or ripping it or throwing it back to me, I'm going to jig it up. And as I jig it up, I can feel vibration in my rod. That vibration lets me know that alert isn't followed up. It's actually working. And as it's doing that, it's triggering the strike. The idea is you want to rip it up, get it to vibrate and let it swim down and sink and hit the bottom. It's going to stir things up. But if it's a great lure for open water, cast like a bullet. We use it a lot up in say Devil's Lake and Sakakawea or Castle of Weedlines. Perfect lure for up there. Doesn't matter if it's windy out or not, you can cast that. Where some of the other ones you just can't cast into the wind, it's too light. But it works great for ice fishing, great for open water. And then this year we come out with three new products. The ideal is we're going for the Finicky Bite. We're downsizing things on the Ridge Rider. This one here we come out with, it's called the Mini. I didn't see it or not, but it basically weighs just under a quarter ounce. And we already have a quarter ounce one, but this is about half the size. Some of that weight, it's just a nice fast dropping lure. It's got smaller hooks on it. It's designed to catch crappie and perch and all this. But when we were testing it up in Devil's Lake last year, it isn't just up in Devil's Lake, but we have a bunch of areas down here where we have nice walleye and nice perch that share the same water. So you can be targeting perch for an hour and next thing you'll get a six ball walleye come. So this lure is great for that because it's got the small hooks on it for the perch crappie. But when a walleye bites it, it doesn't just nibble on it. It basically inhales. If you're going to use this for a walleye, bring fires with you because they're going to have to try on a small. Just something cool. And there's a lot of similar products out there, but the big difference on this, it's the weight forward design and the ribs. It's going to vibrate and it's going to have a fast drop with the other one. Just don't ask. Yeah. I've fished before you guys came out with the Ridge Rattler, I used some of the smaller lipless cranks and they just don't have the weight. You were talking about those like the rattle trap is one I think about. It was okay, but I can cast the PK Ridge Rattler almost twice as far. It's going to dive deeper. Yes, much deeper. And it's fun. I took it last year out off of this. We have this gravel point that would drop off and I was running that Ridge Rattler right up, right up that gravel drop off and just catching walleye after walleye off that drop. And I've noticed those predatory fish. They really want to be low in the water column and watch that bait fish. And when that bait fish is getting close to the surface and close the bank, that's when they want to run up and strike and eat that thing. So if you can mimic that where, where bait fish are, you know, running away, but they're running out of basically maneuverable room, that's when those big fish are like, okay, I've got you. I'm going for it. And they can corral you. Yeah. And Kurt, I was going to say those smaller ones are going to be really awesome for trout here in the West because a lot of our lakes, we have predator and believe me, they are predatory brook trout, splake, browns, fishing that smaller version through the ice and mid winter is going to be great because some of those bigger ones sometimes turn them off, right? Like it's a little too much for them, but downsizing a little bit, I think is going to be just killer for the trout through the ice here in Wyoming, Montana, and the Western States. It's going to be fun to put them to use for sure. Well, one key element on catching fish is that I can be using a Renway dinner devil, right? And it's, I can have one size and it just doesn't work. Sometimes you just go to a smaller size. That's all you really need to do. You can have the right color and everything else, but sometimes it's going to a smaller size. It's all you need to do. So that's why we come out with this mini rig browser, just a different option of what already works great. Yeah. Just as a business owner, what are some tips and tricks you found? You have two companies you've talked about you're running. You've got your competitive fishing. What are some things you've done to bring balance into? Cause obviously R and D new products, bringing that to the market. I know personally what is behind that and the amount of energy work, stress, strife goes into launching a new product, but you're also running another existing company. And then you talked about, you're getting to go do competitive fishing, which is your kind of sounds like your bread and butter, what you like to do. So how do you balance all this to keep a holistic schedule and keep you motivated to keep producing new products? Yeah, no, that's a great question. I don't even know where to start. How do you balance not just one job, but basically two. And for one, you gotta have a good foundation at home. You gotta have a good support group. You gotta have good friends and family that help you out. I can't do this on my own. There's no way. I probably talk to Pat once a week. You just kick around different ideals, but then there's the financial part of this too, where it just, in this story, you got a couple million dollars worth of product, which we're just sitting on, waiting to go. And some of it sells better than the other stuff, but to be a weird tiny company we're competing against Rapalas and Berkleys and Northlands that we're not there, but hopefully someday we'll, we'll get a little bit closer. I was just uptown on the other day at Shields in Bismarck and what started out being just a two by two area of PK is we always got an eight foot section up there right now. So that's a big store. That's a good store for us, but it's not one of our biggest. Hopefully every year we keep gaining tech space. It all starts with having a good support group and my other company is doing very well where we can take some money out of put in with something new. Like we talked about earlier, we come out with some different stuff this year. We're also an open water company. I got to keep coming out with Oakland water products. And I think we're on the right track. We've got stuff that's unique again, and then I can catch a fish, but trying to balance everything. Yeah. It's a chaos sometimes. There's nothing worse than being a competitive fisherman. That's probably the most stressful job you can have. So that's going to keep moving forward and doing the best we can. I picked this one up the other day and as an entrepreneur, business owner, if the things you do in your downtime don't revitalize and re -energize, you're not going to make it very long. It's just, you know, it sounds like fishing, even though it causes some stress, it's your getaway from the fishing lure company, right? Yeah. No, I just love the outdoor part about being a competitive ranger. If we get to go somewhere and we'll be up in Green Bay, we'll be on Erie. This August here, we took a couple of net views off the port packing. We just changed trout, lake trout. That was a blast. If you want to go to a cook catch 25 to 30 inch wakers, four pack is it, and it's only six hours only, but it's six hours from us. And we ice fish big in the last mountain, plus all around here. Going to the different bides of water, you think it's a little vacation, but it's really not. Everywhere I might go, I pick up different things I need to do, where I do with DK, where it's different colors, different bides of water, fish react differently to certain things. So as we're going around ice fishing, open water fishing, I'm picking up things. I might go to somewhere to just tank and just do terrible, but yet I picked up some skills there or I learned something new that I can take somewhere else. So it was very beneficial to actually go to this event. It's just, we're always learning and that's something we got to do to keep things moving forward. I was going to ask you this later in the podcast, but I think I'll ask it now is if you're talking to somebody who's looking at the market and looking at different options, so you talked about Northland, you talked about Berkeley, Rapala, all those big companies, and then PKs, tell them just if you were to tell them one thing about why they should buy a PK, what would that be? What is the one thing you'd say, this is why you got to have PKs, this is why you should try this? I'm not one to say that PK is a catch -all. It isn't. Should PK be in someone's arsenal? Why not? We've got something for everybody, water, we've got something for every water type, almost every species of fish. We're a North Dakota, better known, why not give it a try? I know some guys are stuck on certain things, that's the hardest thing that this little industry is to get people to try something new. A lot of older guys have a talk box that's full, right? They don't have any need or any desire to buy anything new. They've got what works, they've got what's got them their biggest fish. We're targeting the younger generation, where we sponsor the high school fishing league in our state here. It's basically like, you know, the bass circuit, but we try to target, or we try to cater to the younger generation. That's the guys that have a tackle box that's empty, they're looking to fill it up, and they're more eager to try it, and they might not have as much experience on the water, so if we can get them a PK in their hand and they can catch their first big fish on it, they're hooked. And that's a lot of guys' big mistake, is that they're not willing to try something new, where they might try a certain crankbait, where they might try a particular crankbait that they like, and they'll put that crankbait on for six, seven hours, and if they don't catch a fish, they'll just, at the end of that fishing trip, they'll say the fish just didn't bite. That probably isn't the case, because they were open to try something new. It can be a benefit with something new, and I would say try it, you got something for basically everybody. Yeah, and I would echo that for sure, like this summer we were, I took my family up to Keyhole, and I did a podcast on that, and my son and my dad and I, so it was three generations of boys in the boat, and we wanted to go out and get after the walleye. The wind blew for a couple of days, where we couldn't get out to where I knew the walleye would probably be, so we focused on crappie and pike and other things, and then when we were able to get out to where the walleye were, that PK Dakota Disc was awesome, and my dad's kind of that older guy you're talking about, Kurt, where he's 80 years old, and he has the one thing that's always worked for him. He's got one of those crawler harnesses that Northland made that he loved, and Ben's on the other side of the boat with this PK Dakota Disc out fishing grandpa, so that was pretty cool. He was having fun, he's catching fish after fish, and we were done pretty quickly. It didn't take very long once we could get out to where they were at, but that Dakota Disc shines, and that PK Wobbler, a lot of your open water stuff, man, I'm just like, you have as a fisherman, you're like, okay, it's a crawler harness. It's not just a crawler harness, and what's really cool is, for me, I've been able to put a lot of fish in the boat this year using that, and I was going to tell you this story too. I have a nephew, he lives in like the Denver metro area, right, so real busy part of Denver, doesn't go fishing, mostly plays video games. I had him come up here to Boyson Reservoir with me, and we went out, and we were pulling a PK Wobbler, and I like the one that's got the pink with the kind of silvery look to it, and we were using that, and we were, seriously, we were going about a half a mile an hour to three quarters of a mile an hour, and about three foot of water right off the edges, some weeds, and some kind of dirty water, and we had our limit in 45 minutes. It was so much fun, he had a blast, and so I would just echo that, why not try something different? It is fun to, especially in the summer, you don't have to use the same crawler harness you've been using for 25 years. You can try some of these new things that give off a different vibration, a different flash, have a little different action to them, and they work really well. Thank you for putting those out, because they certainly helped us this summer quite a bit. That PK Wobbler and that Dakota Disc, and go over some cool products that pull on live beads. That's all I ever did. Back then, there was a Colorado blade, and there was an Indiana blade, and you would put on different beads, different colored beads, different colors, and just mix and match until you got something that was this cool. When Pat first designed that PK Wobbler, it was basically out of a piece of balsa wood, and he had filed that out, and there's one side that's flat, one side's round, and when we tested it, it was the rounded side, which is the opposite side that it is now. It's the rounded side, it's your fishing pole, and that just wobbled back and forth. Probably went about 20 degrees, that you sped up, it just wobbled faster, and you go, oh, that's cool. It's a float that has action, so let's just call it the PK Wobbler. It just made sense, but then when it goes into production, it goes from balsa wood into fork, and it totally chunks the action, and I panicked, because I got this piece of foam back, and I think I was out in Green Bay or somewhere, and I was just putting some on, and it basically wasn't doing anything. It was like, pulling around a box, and I'm like, God, I got a lot of these, I don't know what I'm going to do with them. So we peed out around, and I got this idea, let's just flip it around, so now we have the part that's flat, that face of the fishing pole, and that turned it into a multi -directional floating spinner. That was by accident. Now we got stuff that's in multi -directional, multi -directional. Whoever thought of that, I wasn't thinking of that, but that's what it does, and we got the patent for that, and that's ours, when it all happened by a lot, but as a kid growing up floating spinner, I thought, how else can we do a spinner? It's been done before, and then after, I ended up sitting, and then we kind of worked together to make what it is, but that PK Wobbler, I cashed two checks on the National Walleye Tour with it, plus a bunch of other checks of fishing, different other fish tournaments, but what a cooler. I think it does better in mid -summer, more on the Great Lakes. It just covers a bigger body of, as it spins, it displaces water in a bigger area, where say you go out to Lake Erie, it's always big blade, big stuff, right? As it spins, it's covering an area that's bigger than an actual spinner would, if that makes any sense, and then my dad and brother were out here two years ago, and they were messing around. When you go up here, it's always crankbaits, big stickbaits, reef runners, bandits, baglies, those, you're graded out there, so if you're going to go to Erie, if you're going to drive 14 hours, it's going to put the whole world up, it just makes sense. Why do you want to go out there and mess around with something that probably isn't going to catch a fish, when you only have a couple days to fish? So they went out there, and they're pulling big big bait bandits around, and then my dad being sad, he puts on the PK Wobbler in front of it, or whatever, let's see what it does. That first day, they went out, they've had a one pull, my dad outfished my brother like five to one, with a wobbler in front of a six -bait bandit, right? I don't know if it turns it into a scatter wrap, where it's got a little different action, or something, but by the end of their trip, they had a wobbler in front of every bandit, so that was just super cool. That's why we're going to go out there next week, we're going to play around with this some more, and we're going to put wobbler in front of cranks, and then we have a different rattle float coming out next year, we're going to play around with that, and then we got a Kaleidote we're working on for next year, and we're going to play around with that, and see what comes of it, but that PK Wobbler is super cool, we pretty much sell them all year around, even in February, we got wobbler's going out the door, which I think is just neat, and then that PK decoded this, it's just a round disc, about little, about a quarter, we got the idea, that's the full flapping around, it just goes side to side, and it causes vibration, it's kind of a swimming action, killer lure up on Devil's Lake, I don't think it goes by a fish that it doesn't catch, it just really does very well up in Devil's Lake, Lake Oahu out here, I think, I think almost anywhere I've ever put that on, I've caught fish, super cooler, deep, doesn't cost a lot, but if you want to tie your own, we have all the parts, you can buy them online, and you get a pack of 12 discs, very effective lure, and the get up and done often make it different, and we did it again with the PK decoded disc. Yeah, like I said, it worked great for me this summer, but I want to go back to this, you've got some new micro stuff coming out for this winter season, besides the Ridge Rattler, can you talk about those other two products, because I think those, especially around here, because we've got, we got the trout that I know will eat them, we've got the walleye, the crappie, the perch, all those different things, just highlight some of those new micros that you got coming out. Oh, this starts out now, about two years ago, I fished, called the NAIFC, I think it's still having a lure, but it's basically a special panfish ice fishing circuit, where they target bluegills, the area where I'm at, we don't have any bluegills, I don't, I think I caught my first one here probably three years ago, they're a very aggressive fish, like a crappie, but a lot smaller, but anyway, we were fishing Lake Oahu in Iowa, went down there, and I brought the PK predator tungsten, it's a one ounce tungsten, got a blade on it, a treble hook, we were fishing, and I could see them on my livestock, and there was a bunch of them down there, they wouldn't fight, and so I go online, and I'm trying to figure out how to catch a bluegill, and first thing I said is, lighten up your line, you know, go like a two pound test, and I did that, and I think our PK predator tungsten was a little too big, so you can come up with the idea of, let's drop the hook from the actual lure, to get like space out there, and then that seemed to work, started catching fish, that came up with the idea of, let's just make a real small tungsten, how small can we go, we got it down to a one thirty second out tungsten, and this is called the metagoshi rig, that all came from the idea of bluegill bite eat, bug bite eat, so the idea, this is this lure, bait chasing bait, when you stick something on the hook, it's basically, that hook is going to be following that lure, like bait chasing bait down there, real cool idea, we used a little bit last fall on Devil's Lake, we were catching blue jumbo perch with this, and then we would have walleye come through, I think our biggest walleye we caught was about three pounds, the chain did not break, I'm like, I'm sold, this is an awesome lure, bluegill, crappie, perch, and walleye, but I'm not saying this is a walleye lure, but if you have one come through, you're going to be okay with it, you know, that's the hook, right, and then as I'm going around, different sporting shows, I'm thinking, hey, I got this cool small spoon with a drop chain, and I'm showing guys, and they're like, you know what would be cooler than that, a treble hook on it, and I'm like, I can't breathe these guys, so what I did, I come out with a TK micro spoon, same one 30 second tongues in, but we put a size 20 treble hook on it, that way I got all the anglers happy, I think, I covered every bait, yeah, we got six colors of each, real cool lures, shield was down in Kirkwood Chasm, and here's a bunch of other stores that are slowly picking them up, but it's something new, so if you don't have it at your store, ask as far as that they order it, or check it out on our website, where we're fully stocked.

A highlight from Abortion Remarks From Gavin Newsom & Trump Creating Tons Of Controversy
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. Did you guys hear the U .S. Senate just eliminated its dress code because you got this guy from Pennsylvania who's got a lot of problems, I mean let's just be honest. This push from the UAW for a four day work week, do you see that as the future of labor in the U .S.? I happen to believe that as a nation we should begin a serious discussion about substantially lowering the work week. Now from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. We have a lot to keep up with a missing F -35 fighter jet that was found finally in North Charleston, South Carolina. You got all kinds of controversies involving President Trump in some of his interviews. You have the slaughter of a police, a deputy sheriff in Los Angeles, they caught the guy. A lot of breaking news, a lot of stories about the illegal immigration crisis in America. Lost in a lot of the headlines was the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, taking a bit of a pot shot at Ron DeSantis. It came during an interview over the weekend that he gave to Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business. I want you to hear this clip because I didn't catch this until last night. I was intrigued by this because all of us have to be very careful as this presidential election process plays out. As I've said over and over again, if you're a never -Trumper, what are you going to do if Trump's the nominee? If you're only in for Ron DeSantis and you hate Trump and Trump is going to be the nominee for the presidential race, what are you going to do? You're going to support Joe Biden? You're going to back a Democrat? How's that going to play out for you? I think the same standard has to apply to members of Congress, certainly members of Republican Party leadership like Kevin McCarthy. Now, I think he's pretty effective. I think he's been doing a good job and he's got a mess on his hands with this potential looming government shutdown. It's like herding cats trying to keep the various members of the caucus happy. Listen to what he said to Maria Bartiromo, though, about DeSantis and Trump. What's your take on this, that as we see more indictments of Donald Trump, he seems to be gaining in terms of popularity with the public? Will he be the nominee? I think he will be the nominee. The thing is, President Trump is stronger today than he was in 2016 or 2020. And there's a reason why they saw the policies of what he was able to do with America, putting America first, making our economy stronger. We didn't have inflation. We didn't have these battles around the world. We didn't look weak around the world. Well, it looks like Ron DeSantis is now trying to work with your colleagues who are pushing for a shutdown. Yeah, but I don't think that would work anywhere. A shutdown would only give strength to the Democrats. It would give the power to Biden. It wouldn't pay our troops. It wouldn't pay our border agents. More people would be coming across. I actually want to achieve something. And this is where President Trump is so smart that he was successful in this. You know, President Trump is beating Biden right now in the polls. Yeah, we have the poll. Let's show it. He's stronger than he has ever been in this process. And look, I served with Ron DeSantis. He's not at the same level as President Trump by any shape or form. He would not have gotten elected without President Trump's endorsement. And so I believe our best step forward, pass our appropriation bills. So we're stronger. Take the wokeism out, secure our border to make America stronger. Wow. I don't think that was on my I didn't have that on my radar. Does that surprise you that Kevin McCarthy is all in for Donald Trump? So I think to be fair and to be consistent, I have to say I have to apply the same standard to Speaker McCarthy, because if DeSantis becomes the nominee, they're going to have a bit of a bumpy relationship. Now, Ron DeSantis heard about Kevin McCarthy's position and responded as well. This is Ron DeSantis answering a question from a reporter regarding Speaker McCarthy's full -fledged endorsement of Donald Trump. Well, look, I would say I mean, I think that if you look at what's happened with D .C. Republicans, they worked very closely. You know, look, Donald Trump, he supported Kevin McCarthy very strongly for speaker. I don't think he would have won the speaker vote. Donald Trump was instrumental in him earning that speaker's gavel. And they worked hand in glove really throughout his whole presidency. They were on the same team on every major spending bill that came down the pike. And they ended up together adding seven point eight trillion dollars to our national debt. Never in a four year period has that much been added than what they did together. And so he said that we're different. We are different because in Florida we run budget surpluses. We've paid down almost 25 percent of our state's debt just since I've been governor. All the debt, all the way up for all of Florida's history, we've knocked off almost 25 percent of it. So it's a much different approach to where we're doing it right. We have the number one rated economy in the country. We've cut taxes. We've expanded school choice. And we've delivered in a way that has made the state sustainable.

A highlight from Fishing New Waters with Patrick Edwards
"This episode of RadCast Outdoors is brought to you by P .K. Lures, Bow Spider, and High Mountain Seasonings. Fish on! Hey, RadCast is on! Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. This is RadCast Outdoors. Here are David Merrill and Patrick Edwards. Welcome back to another episode of RadCast Outdoors. I'm your host today, Patrick Edwards, and I'm on the road. So this is a special edition of Patrick on the Road. I'm heading out doing some traveling for my work. Wanted to talk a little bit about something that was brought up to me the other day. My friend Seth, he asked me to do a breakdown of when you're going to a new body of water, what are some things that you need to do? What are some things that you need to look at? What's the kind of gear you should take? And so what I'm going to do is I'm going to do a high -level overview of how to break down different types of water and maybe some ideas of things that you should do beforehand, some things you should take with you, and of course some things you should try while you're there. So we'll go through that, and then we're going to talk specifically towards the end about pike, because he was more curious about the pike fishing aspect of things. So we'll talk about that too. But first, I just want to say a big thank you again to PK Lures. They are our fishing sponsor for the podcast. They've been a great company to work with over the last few years. They have quite the arsenal of products, and if you're going to be going anywhere this year fishing, doesn't matter whether it's open water or hard water, make sure to grab some PK Lures. They've got applications for all of the above for ice fishing season. If you don't have the PK Flutterfish and the PK Spoon and the PK Predator in your box, you're missing out. If you're fishing the open water and the new PK Ridge Rattler, it's a rattling crankbait. You can use it through the ice too, by the way, but it works great in open water. If you're catching trout, bass, walleye, doesn't matter. It catches just about everything. They have some great trolling applications. They have some trolling crankbaits like the PK Ridgeline crank, and then of course their Wobbler Dakota Disc, ReefRig and other trolling systems for walleye specifically. Those things are absolutely deadly. And then year round, the PK Spinajig. How could I forget that one? That one's amazing. So go to PKLure .com if you use Ragcast at checkout, you get 20 % off your order. So let's talk about breaking down bodies of water. Really, there's a few things that you should do well beforehand. If you know you're going to be taking a big trip and you're going to make a big investment, especially right now when you got gas, it's four, some places, five bucks a gallon. You want to make sure that you've done your homework prior to going to this body of water to fish. It doesn't matter whether it's a river, a lake, a pond, a reservoir. You need to do your homework beforehand. So one of the things that I always recommend is number one, get a hold of the fisheries biologists that work at that body of water. They're going to be able to share important information with you, some reconnaissance on what kind of fish are there. What are the typical size? Maybe you're interested in the size classes. Maybe you're going after master anglers and you want to make sure that you give yourself the absolute best chance of catching that master angler fish. The best thing to do is say, hey, I want to go there and I want to catch a big fish. OK, they're going to be able to hopefully key you in on some good areas or at least give you some people to talk to. You can also do some recon on the computer or on your phone. So onX is a great tool. Google Earth, of course, is a great tool. I like to pull it up and just look at what I can see visually from the satellite view. Sometimes you get the bad luck of having a western reservoir after runoff and the whole reservoir looks like chocolate because all the sediments washed down the river, you can't really see like into the water. You can see some of the rocky points and structures, but you can't see much else. But some are super clear bodies of water and you can see really well. So what I recommend is pull it up, take a look at it, maybe drop some pins on some areas that you think look good. And so some areas that I look for is transitions from hard to soft bottom. So if you see like a rocky shoreline where it goes into like maybe a sandbar, that's a good spot. Any kind of point that has a drop -off, if you can see weed edges, transitions are typically where you're going to find fish most of the time. So I mark those and just get an idea of what I'm looking at and just get a feel for the reservoir. I also look at where can I put in, if I'm taking a boat, where's the boat ramp at? Where's the bathroom at? Those are important things. Where's the parking area? Maybe I'm just going to go take my waders and I'm going to fish the shoreline. You're going to have to look for a parking area. You also want to look at the properties surrounding that body of water to make sure that it's public, because if you need special access to it, you're going to have to request that beforehand. So if there's private access, you're going to need to make those phone calls, those emails, whatever it takes to get access to that area. So that's some of the pre homework that I would recommend. I would also recommend you maybe call a local bait shop and just say, Hey, I'm coming to fish for this specific species. What are people catching fish on right now? What's the hot bait or during the time of year that I'm going, if I'm going in September and I'm calling the bait shop in May, say, Hey, in the fall around September, what kind of things should I be bringing to catch whatever fish it is? Right. Could be walleye trout, whatever, but just be very specific. Ask those questions. Those bait shops are going to be more than happy to tell you because they want you to come and buy those lures from them. And I always try to do that. Support your local bait shops, go in there, buy a few lures. That's a great gesture. They really appreciate it when you do that. So do that. That'll get you set up for your trip. Okay. Now let's talk about some of the things you ought to take for most fresh water situations around the entire country here in the United States. These are some of the things I recommend everybody takes. Okay. You should have some kind of suspending crank bait anywhere you go in this country, especially if you're going to fish for anything predatory. So if you're going for bass, walleye, trout, panfish, they all eat suspending crank baits. I've caught them all on it. And I've even caught suckers and carp on them too. So you never know. You may catch one of the less desirables on it too, but a suspending crank is one of my number one things. So you want to have those, you want to have some kind of a jig set up. I always have jigs with me and usually they're the eighth ounce and 16th ounce size. I always have Baraboo jigs because those catch everything from yeah, carp all the way through to trout. So make sure that you have some kind of a jig set up. I also like the VMC Munai jig. Those are phenomenal. And of course, like I mentioned earlier, the PK spinner jig, because it's a hybrid between a jig and a spinner. And you can do a lot of cool things with it. You can swim it, you can jig it, you can do all kinds of stuff with it. I also make sure to take some kind of a soft plastic to tip my jigs with. I like to bring Berkeley Gulp. Gulp seems to work really well, especially on trout. I catch tons of trout on Gulp, but you can also bring the Power Minnows. You can bring Paddle Tails. I like the Walleye Assassin Paddle Tails quite a bit. So make sure to bring something like that to tip your jigs with. And then of course, depending on the body of water that you're going to and what the regulations are, you might be able to buy some live bait, which is great. It's always good to have some crawlers if it's during the summer, maybe minnows, like in the fall, spring and winter. So just check the regulations, make sure that you're doing the appropriate things and fishing with the right stuff. But jigs are essential to have in your kit. I like molded swimbaits too. So like Storm makes a molded swimbait. It's just, it's about two and a half, three inches long. I like to have those cause they're really easy to fish. All you got to do is tie them on, cast them out, let them sink down to whatever depth you want to fish and just slow reel them back, you can reel them and pop them back. But those work on just about every species that I fish for. So those are critical, but also spoons are huge.

A highlight from Reimagining Work and Community: Unveiling the Cabin Lifestyle and Polycentric Governance
"Welcome to The Defiant. I'm your host, Tegan Kline. Today I'm joined by the driving force behind a venture that has redefined the concept of modern travel and community. John Hills, the founder of Cabin, a network city for remote workers in nature who is actively working to grow a global network of neighborhoods for people interested in community centric living and working. Cabin exists today and they have many different locations around the world. Cabin is a great example of merging the digital with the physical and using Web3 tools in real life. We delve into the purpose behind Cabin, how the COVID lockdowns inspired and allowed room for a cabin to emerge, the shift in the remote work mindset, as well as the flee from cities. We also get into the different governance structures that exist within the Dow ecosystem and why Cabin chose polycentric governance. Don't worry, John breaks down what that is for us. We also talk about Dow best practices, how you can get involved in Cabin communities and so much more. But first, John tells us what Cabin is. Cabin is a place to co -live with friends in nature. So we're building a global network of beautiful properties for remote workers seeking meaningful connections. Amazing and definitely needed during this time in the world. I guess, can you tell us a little bit about your mission and purpose? What made you start Cabin? Yeah, so what we're building is something that we call a network city. And if you think about cities, they are places where culture tends to develop and prosperity forms throughout history. And they're typically built around the dominant technology of the era. So for the past century, most of our cities, particularly in the United States, have been built around cars. And we believe that in the 21st century, we can start building internet native cities. And if you think about an internet native city, the most important thing about the internet is that it's everywhere. And so we are trying to build cities that are not just in one place that are decentralized into a bunch of different hubs with shared culture, economies and governance structures. Amazing. And tell us like, are those physical cities, digital cities are kind of a combination of both? Yeah, so our network city spans both. So, you know, at its core, what we are building are actual physical locations where you can come stay and live. And in particular, where, you know, remote workers or people seeking a different way of meeting other people and, you know, solving for loneliness and some of the core problems that, you know, people experience typically in isolated environments, like suburbs or current cities, can come out and live in nature, touch grass, be around a community of other like minded people, and still be very connected to the internet. So our community, ultimately, is about getting together in person. But we, you know, then connect together online and are able to have and build a shared culture and to travel across different places in the network. Amazing. And kind of thinking about some of these community members, what's the average time someone would stay in the community? Are they usually uprooting their lives and fully moving? Do they kind of share maybe have their home elsewhere and stay there part of the time? What does that usually look like? Yeah, so it varies. Many of our community members are remote workers, digital nomads, online creators, you know, who like to travel around to different places. And so most of our co -living is people who are coming for one to six month stays at a given neighborhood and then either going somewhere else in the network or just traveling flexibly anywhere else in the world. But we also aspire to build, you know, neighborhoods in our network around families and around people who are looking for permanent places to live. My wife and I are having a kid in November. And so we're really excited about the opportunity to have a place that we can call home where we can, you know, grow our family, raise our kids, and still be deeply embedded within a community of both other people who are permanently living as well as people who are flexibly traveling around this network. Amazing. Well, congratulations. And maybe tell us a little bit about your background that inspired you to create Cabin. Yeah. So, you know, I think my personal story in relation to Cabin starts as far back as middle school where I was spending a lot of time hanging out in online communities and also trying to thinking I wanted to become an architect designing virtual houses for friends and family members. And, you know, the internet and online communities had a big impact on my life. When I went to college, I discovered the joy of living in a dense residential community at a small liberal arts college and ended up majoring in environmental studies and political science. And, you know, I think the combination of those fields, I was interested in trying to understand how we could solve some of the big problems that were coming down the pike in the world. And so, you know, what I came around to was that a lot of political science and political theory was sort of based around this fundamental idea of nation states and that actually humans coordinate much more effectively in small groups. And so I tried to explore for my senior thesis how small groups could try to overcome collective action problems, which I didn't really realize at the time, but was essentially, you know, research on DAOs. And around that same time, my college roommate showed me Silk Road, which was my first introduction to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. After college, the two of us tried to start a startup that was kind of like an early token gated community, even though that wasn't really a thing in 2014. And certainly no one was interested in that at the time. So we, you know, shut it down. I spent six years at Instacart as a director of product. And then after the pandemic hit, I kind of followed my Thoreovian dream to go build a cabin in the woods and try to start bringing together internet people at it. Amazing. I love that journey and that you were such an early adopter. And it's exciting to see it kind of come to life. And I want to double click into the DAO space and just how you've seen it evolve in a moment. But before we do, can we talk a little bit about the solar punk movement that I know that's come up in a lot of the podcasts that you've done? Can you explain what the solar punk community is for the listeners and why you maybe resonate with that community? Yeah, definitely. So solar punk, you know, is really a vibe more than anything. It's a literary and artistic movement. But ultimately, what I think it's trying to do is envision positive futures where humanity has solved some of these core problems like climate change, biodiversity loss, loneliness, living in community by interconnecting nature and people. And so I think, you typically people associate it with kind of science fiction or certain imagery. And it's one of the few areas of kind of forward looking, future looking, you know, that is actually positive right now. There's so much negative science fiction and, and, you know, kind of says, hey, we actually can solve these problems. And, you know, it actually turns out that if we just get together with small groups of people and, you know, figure out how to build organizations and society that is both high tech and high nature at the same time, that we can start to turn the tide on some of these big problems facing the world. And, you know, some people might write cabin office maybe being too hippie, and they don't want to necessarily try it for that reason. What would you say to that group of people? Yeah, we're definitely not hippies.
Can DeSantis Criticize Trump Without Alienating Supporters?
"Don't want to criticize a Republican who might be the nominee. But frankly, I don't quite get it. How are you going to go after Trump without Trump supporters feeling attacked? Trump is a movement. It's not even about the man. He's a movement. It's MAGA. It's millions and millions of Americans who want this country to come first and believe that Trump is the guy who has done it and will do it again. How does Governor DeSantis—that's the problem here. And you know, this whole mystery about the polls and how DeSantis is lagging behind so badly in the polls, that's why. And anything he says about Trump is going to come back to haunt him, I think, because Trump supporters believe he's talking about them. This is really tricky. Here was what DeSantis said on this interview with Will Witt on the Florida Standard that got a lot of tongues wagging. We have a strand in our party that views supporting Trump as whether you are a rhino or not. And so you could be the most conservative person since sliced bread. Unless you're kissing his rear end, they will somehow call you a rhino. You're not rooted in principle. If all we are is listless vessels that are just supposed to follow, you know, whatever happens to come down the pike on Truth Social every morning, that's not going to be a terrible movement. I'm going to say this to you flat out. Ron DeSantis has one chance. And the only chance he has is if he manages to convince the country that when he criticizes Trump, he's not criticizing Trump supporters. That's the challenge Ron DeSantis has.
'Things That Really, Really, Really, Really Never Happened' With Joe Biden
"That never happened, winds up featuring Joe Biden because he lies so often so about much. But there's a sequel to the show. Things that really, really, really, really never happened that Biden just keeps talking about. So he tells this story often about oil slicks on cars to make you believe like he grew up next to like an oil well because he's a Scranton kid. There's no evidence any of this happened. Everybody told the story the first time. What was it, Jim? Like a year and a half ago was like, wait, the hell is he talking about? He was in front of that recycling place that they, the empty field of garbage. Yeah, exactly. And everybody was like, wait, that doesn't sound like a real story. So that never stops Biden from telling the story again. So we did it again yesterday. Take a listen. Holy crap. This thing never happened. So please stop saying it with Joe Biden. When you got up in the morning, my mother would drive us to a little Catholic school we went to about two or three quarters of a mile up the Philadelphia pike. The first day of frost He's turning the windshield wiper to be an oil slick. In the name of all that is holy, please

Report: Fox News-Tucker Carlson Split Was Not Mutual
"Are beginning to get a lot more information about how all of this went down yesterday. Now originally, we were told this was a mutual thing, but now we understand that was far from the case that Tucker was actually fired and had no idea that this was coming down the pike. That's the information we are getting. But again, this is very interesting to see how all of this played out. Remember, by the way, Rupert Murdoch, the guy had a fiance, her name was Anne Lesley Smith, they called off the engagement. He called off the engagement after she told Rupert that she believed Tucker Carlson is a messenger from God. And that's when he called off the wedding. Yep, that's it. We're done here. We're done here. But anyway, Vanity Fair reporting that Tucker was in the middle of negotiating a new 5 year contract, and he was making tens of millions of dollars, so he was doing very, very well. The issue now is, is Fox News actually in danger is it possible that Rupert and Lachlan are trying to sell Fox News channel and they had to get rid of Tucker to make it somewhat more appealing for somebody coming in and buying the network.
Bill Barr: Democrats Want Donald Trump to Be the Republican Nominee
"Bill Barr, who was Trump's attorney general and has turned viciously against Donald Trump as many have, Bill Barr said that the Democrats are egging Donald Trump on because they really want him to be the nominee. They see Trump as being hobbled by all of these criminal indictments, and there will be more coming down the pike to get ready. I mean, the stormy Daniels thing was just chapter one. George is coming January 6th. This is coming. The classified documents, case is coming. And the Democrats, I am absolutely convinced, believe that Trump should be the Republican nominee. Because he's the one that the Democrats will beat. Now, I take Bill Barr's contempt for Donald Trump with a grain of salt. I get it. I know people who hate Trump, I know people who've turned on Trump, they don't like him. They don't like his personality. They think he's undisciplined. They think he's a loose can and whatever, whatever their own demons are. And they are. They get it. It just eats the Trump derangement syndrome each the brain. They don't even think about policy anymore. They don't think about Trump's accomplishments. They don't consider how great we had it in the four years that Trump was president. They just want to calmer gentler nation. They just, they don't want to rock any boats, and they really, but it's deeper than that. They get filled with almost rage. It's rage. They Bill Barr has a rage for Donald Trump.
Who Can Stop Trump?
"Do you think the indictment of Donald Trump will deter, if not Pompeo, other people from getting in because of the rally around the former president affected his head? I think at the very least it's going to affect the timing and the trajectory of how this race moves. For the foreseeable future, like the next few months, I don't see any Republican getting traction against Donald Trump. He's got about a 30 point lead in the latest round of polls and it's largely because of a rally around the flag effect. As you say hue, that Republican voters, even those who might want to move on to a new candidate, are feeling like they want to defend Trump against this brag. Indictment. Now, I do think that if there are other indictments to come more serious cases, whether it's the case in both county, Georgia or whether it's Jack smith's case in D.C. with a special counsel at the special counsel. The legals that I always thought this was going to be governed through the primary process that this was going to be a political whether Trump was going to be the nominee was going to be strictly judged through politics. Now, because of Bragg's decision and because of these pending indictments or possible indictments down the pike, I think the legal process is really going to determine the trajectory of this race. If Trump is facing The Batman after indictment and if he could be going to jail perhaps in 2024, if their trials, that take place during the presidential campaign, we're really in unchartered territory and the legal trajectory might tell us much about the political process as the primaries themselves. Now,
Covid-19 Was a Lab Leak, But Is It a Bioweapon?
"Play cut 36. Listen carefully. This was back in 2020. Listen to operation mockingbird. If you do not know about operation mockingbird, it was uncovered by the church and pike committee back in the 70s. Which was a CIA operation to get all the different media in harmony, singing and harmony. This is not some sort of theory that is unfounded. Listen to yourself about how the media covered this, play cut 36. Tom cotton a couple of days ago. Spout they could conspiracy theory to the Chinese, made this virus up. We know that it's been debunked that this virus was man-made or modified or anything like that. Both scientists and the U.S. intelligence community agree that this coronavirus was not man-made. That is not a possibility. Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh with zero proof suggesting a Chinese bioweapon lab is to blame. And yet this week, Donald Trump is still pushing the debunked bunkum. The virus was not, not not man-made. And these are awful people. I'm going to be honest. There's not good people. Doctor Fleming is the media going to ever backtrack on this because thanks to your efforts, your uncovering this, you're keeping the pressure on, what's the path forward here? Well, I think eventually the media is going to have to uncover it because with ten letters debt or once we get criminal indictments filed by the state attorney generals, that's going to change the entire environment in the United States and on the planet where the media is going to have to pay attention to the fact that Fauci and Gates and Collins and these other people will be charged with actual criminal crimes for making biological viral weapons that there's no excuse for it. There's no pretend that there should be a reason for this. They intentionally altered the coronaviruses to make them infect people and to cause harm in people.

As my girlfriend says in restaurants, they can hear your political opinions in the kitchen. Please stop. But she's not here. She's busy with the dogs. So I get to say whatever I want. Can you start? I mean, if you'd been in Seattle 35 years ago, you could be downtown with your children at night and be reasonably safe. And now, in fact, when you called and said, you wanted to go to that Arctic club. We tried to dissuade me. Yes, we did. And I think I understand that, but I mean it when I say that I've been all over downtown Seattle the last few days, and I think if you have any kind of wisdom, it's like going to New York to avoid it, I think, is silly. I went to pike's park pike's market yesterday. It was loaded with people. It was delightful. The life has come back. So I think we have a little wisdom. I think downtown Seattle needs more of you guys there. I think it will, it will ameliorate things. Also, I hear open carry is legal in this state. Probably. I think more people like you walking around with AR-15s. It's downtown Seattle would be a lot better. You see why we're not streaming on YouTube tonight.
Rep. Thomas Massie on the House's Reboot of the Church Committee
"Massey, welcome to the program. Hey, thanks for having me on, Charlie. So congressman Massey explained to us what is this new committee? And what is the goal of the new church in pike committee that has now been launched? Great. Yeah, I'll give you the formal name of it. It's the select subcommittee on the weaponization of the federal government. And our charter, we got a very broad charter that was granted to us as a result of all that hard work that chip Roy and some of the other folks did in negotiating the speakers race. And one of the things that we got in the negotiations was the ability to get information on ongoing investigations. The hardest thing about this committee is going to be getting the federal government to turn over the documents. A lot of it's going to be classified that you're going to throw up all kinds of reasons. And so their favorite reason is to say, ongoing investigation, not going to comment, that they're not going to be able to do that. Of course, they may try it. They may take us to court to avoid releasing it. But at least in the charter of this committee, we've stated plainly and clearly that that's on the table. The other thing that we got in the negotiations was that if we hit up against a wall, let's say we're going down some trail on the FBI and it turns out there's another three letter Intel agency involved, we are basically a functional appendage of the Intel committee. So we will be able to get any level of classification, any level of classification of document that's necessary to pursue this investigation.

You know as soon as benjamin was up that therapy program that they did and we had you know like i said one hundred and some people come into the house per week to help with the therapy program at my mom would get up before anybody else and have a little quiet time with god to just to make the day so it was a one day at a time journey as well. When you've we've talked about this a number of times kind of being in the you know come into that place where you're willing to go to a higher power because it's beyond what you can handle. Also i'm sorry. Also you know if you are living spiritually religiously with some kind of doctrine you realize early on it. It ain't all about you. And so being beautifully and wonderfully made is not what you see in the mirror. You want your child to see in the mirror. Being beautifully and wonderfully made is how god so this child together alternately to serve others and how well has your child served you your wife your in laws. That might have needed a awakening. There's other kids with surfers healing in it and it comes hard in the thing with benjamin. That came hard. But that's some serious service that you know what happened with him. He serving so much more than i ever have. You know there's a story. I'll tell the win. He was in high school and for some reason he ended up in one of the classes. Had like all the really bad kids naming. They weren't bad kids but they were the most problematic behaviorally.

Yeah they tentatively protected him and looked out for him in instead of kind of looking for attention and all that kind of raillard serving. Yeah yeah they brought out and he does. I mean he's a big hugger and obviously it's been difficult but You know just his heart in his the personality that he has god gave him is the special electronic. Most people were good.

So you know we were devastated but you know we still love their kid and we didn't know what to do. I didn't know anything about autism and we got into the quote unquote system. Early intervention is key. It's the biggest thing when you talk about awareness right so service it's not just serpent with kids just Kids you know. You got a thousand people on the beach.

Have kids neuro typical and so he got all the therapy in house. And so i know this is proven. It does make a difference. I was gonna ask you so for this out there.

I mean love to hear it but you know it's if safeway some of that stuff so unique that if like you know it's hard sell for people. I mean even people who will pick up our our pants. I never work for burglary to lightweight. I mean literally. They can't get past that. It's this lightweight endurable it's it's you know it's it's a it's a leap of faith or these people to think like they try it. I mean we've had of anybody that's called back and complained about stuff. Not work performed level that they wanted it to the touch. Sensor thing is kinda funny because like if you if you would think about like you go back ten years and you head design these gloves. And they have touch sensor people with like what four but now. I hear that i'm like oh that's awesome. Yeah that's we're all using our phones. And we're mapping and yeah so stuff like that can happen where you innovate a little bit. absolutely absolutely. I don't know that anybody else in the up. As using the conductive gloves united. It was a big deal for me. Yeah i had a listener reach out. Because i think i was talking about some gloves and i said you know i kind of liked them but the i can't use my phone right and he actually reached out and i'll say on the podcast. Go buy some north gloves. Don't worry about this but he sent me this. This conductive thread that you could buy on amazon. You could stitch it into the finger of your of your glove. And i was like oh. That's pretty clever. There's actually a paint that you could put on. I bought some for some gloves that i have. It doesn't stick. Globs are have any type of like an oil tan treatment to him that that conducive pate as whereas write offs. I tried them on lots of other gloves. That are You know nice. Loves that i bought and they didn't work one thing i we're going to wrap up here pretty quickly but i wanted to touch on not necessarily going through like the whole sizing thing but let's say people are because you're going direct to consumers and you're not in stores and stuff people are curious about sizing what should they do and then like what options they have as far as like ordering two sizes than sending you back one. Are they go about it. Yeah that's a great question on. That's you know something. We we certainly would love to have a traveling roadshow at some point where i do that but i at this point. It's the best we can do is just tell people that we were really hard on the fit of things. And i mean i we. We get very few returns. That are stopping if you wear a a thirty eight gene. I can almost guarantee that you know you're gonna wear thirty eight hance extra-large top. It's it's going to be an extra large top. I mean it's it's that would be the the one thing i was. You know an interview. If it doesn't fit santa back to us we'll send you the other stuff for free. So i mean it's you know it's it's pretty simple. If you decide it back to us with you know we've got a former website. You know hated the shirts too big shirts too small in all just go back in and create another order for you. I'll you know and and send you the send you the size stuff. So i mean it's i would tell you don't order who i mean in a selfish standpoint my part just because we don't have tons of inventory anywhere buildings as fast as we possibly. Can you know you and you're gonna have to pay shipping and handling to get it back to me your guaranteeing that you've got to send one back. Yeah exactly exactly on and we you know that would be. I would tell people just by which is thank if you're if you're in between sizes. Go up on the shirts. The thing that people realize that you stretch component fabric. If it's off just a little bit on the small side. The stretch helps forgiveness right right in your tall skinny guy. You know you got long arms you know you. You probably noticed with our kiowa shirt you know. We made it a little bit longer torso stays tucked in nothing yet. I'm talk. we also made this by just a touch longer. So you're going up. You know an employer gone up it. You got that The thing is he uses all cotton shirts and you go op it. It sticks it really not binding and you're absolutely it with a stretch fabric. I mean there's nothing better for shooting that having a stretch component shirt on top. I guarantee you that much.

"Who's a big time real estate agent. You know work under worked under him and and started kennedy delving into this a little bit about five and a half years ago five years ago so for about two years. I was just researching looking for things. Went to trade shows to sue at fabrics are available as checking out other companies. Were doing in the mount hunting world to see what what what kind of fabrics they were using. And you know they've they've kind of issues. A lot of the backpacking fabrics. You guys. aren't they think they're tough on. Like come on gobert hunting. And i'll share it with tough on closed so that led me to decide all right. I got some designs drawn up and pick out some fabrics. Like all right. I'm gonna start my llc so started that. I think may two thousand eighteen was was when i file my llc paperwork and had some prototypes maiden and start testing some stuff ow and finding you know there's a lotta stuff that's out there. That just doesn't really work for application. You know so. There's a lot of trial and error trial. The first few pairs of pants at made look really nice. I thought they were going to be functional and you know man rip holes in them and try different things at the last year. What's up now that it's not good. I mean it's a premium price. Point stuff i mean. It's you know we i see you know like wrangler cells their brushing ronald twenty nine ninety five. I'm like we've got more than that fabric in our stuff. I mean literally. I mean that's the fabric that uses you know alter expensive in yeomanry bird. Hunting pants regular pants is like one point. Seven five two yards per pants with burning pants. You know if you're doing an overlay that's a full. Another yard of bricks you're using author and more material on your stuffiness a third more sewing. You have to do as well and all that stuff so so we finally came up with a with a good good kiowa paint was our first one and i i really liked the tonga stanford i had designed but i wasn't sure about the durability of the fabric and so i i got ahead a pair may i gave him to a buddy of mine that lives in the. Up that is the woods like laura three hundred days a year. i mean the guy is he's Trains cocker spaniels. And he's you know just before before i Soil scientists on this guy knows look as a big bird on me. Hung out west today hunting. Ub and He used them for a full season. And he's i said well. How do they look like they. Look at your brand new. I'm like are you serious. He's like i swear to. God is like this is the fabric. But he's like it's like really off mike. It's not the most brier proof stuff either. Use these what did she sheds way. Ninth perfect i said. I said you know we can't have everything you know. everything's copper instead. We talked about our pheasants forever. I mean you know. Are they perfect. No but really good you know. And that's you know we try to do is have stuff. That's exceptionally appropriate for the conditions. You're looking for kyle. Pat is our early season. You know prairie pant you know light-duty grousing pant. Are you aware through blackberry. Cain no it's it's not designed for that they're they're they're not neither got protection on they'll fend off some matter brush. No problem there really durable. But they're they're not. They're not brier pants. But these targets pants. Go back to that as guys. They're awesome sound like all right. Let's let's do it. You know so he ordered at fabric gotta made and and and that was you know the the next iteration. We came up with And i guess kind of jumped a couple of steps. They're saying it's all good. Yeah so so. The the first pant was the kiowa pan in the. We had the kiowa shirt so that was kind of the first thing i really struggled with. His is the early season stuff. I mean i. It was always just really hot and muggy with you when you first start hunting. In the early season. I stuff that's lightweight breathable and flexible. You know there's nothing else out there right now. That's light weight breathable flexible. I mean there's lightweight stuff out there but if it's made a cotton. I think it's one thing. A lot of people were still educating people on you know what it means to have synthetic fabrics as opposed to cotton and cotton. I mean i've. I've got caught blue jeans on right now. I mean there super comfortable. They absorb moisture. I mean that's cotton is a yeah. It doesn't release it quickly. And that's that's what the synthetic fabrics they're not designed to to grab hold moisture. They're designed to grab moisten. Spread it out in dry out extremely quickly. That's why you know if they're treated with the right stuff. I've decided grandma should all like all of our patients treated we throw out the term. Dwi dwi durable water repellent. So you'll know that so All of our pants are treated with a with a durable water repellent finish so they're just not gonna absorb moisture. I mean. does that mean they're not going to get wet. Of course they still can get wet but it just. It's not that the fabric when you know like a sponge grabs a you know it fills up and it. It doesn't dry out with the the the the nylon and polyester stop it you know it can get coated water but it. It just dries out really quickly. You know you go from your first thoughts your next spot in dewey morning and that was always my biggest bitch. It's like you know you start on the morning you get wet has really do or frosty in your wet all day long and miserable. you know. there's nothing worse than getting wet in staying wet. Whether you know your pants get with a stick to you. You're climbing over logs. And i mean it's it's like little. You're fighting twice as hard as you should too to have fun and this is supposed to be fire. I have a a good a good buddy of mine. Cancer survivor called me last year. He's a tight right he's like. I was really struggling with hunting. Last year's been able to see all the field all day long on my body's recovering from from chemotherapy. And i'm not as good shape as i used to be and met my cold and was really dragging me down. I can't believe how much is it hot all day. Long pants are like half the weight. Kurtzer hathaway and you know if if you stick them in a bucket of water in appear cotton stuff in the in a bucket of water and just see how long it takes them to dry. I mean it's it's it's incredible and stuff dries out in between spots the other stuff you know. It might take all day to dry out by ninety drive in the next morning. So that's you know so. We had to kiowa line last year. We launched the longest line. Which is our wet weather line so pants that you're talking about front that it feel tested for a year for me. You know the the The lower the upper thigh down to the backup behind the knee is all waterproof breathable material. Like you'd have like gortex jacket..

"It's that's fairly doable. In ocean lake gore boys in our meeting the wind river sometimes and i know most people that kills them the turn awhile. I lose well after you catch him. You don't have to turn him loose if you don't want to turn back because i i don't like to keep big fish any species very well because you're messing up gene pool somewhat for master angle. You just need a photo with a length and the can release up fish. Yeah if you want to are you can keep. It doesn't matter. You just have to have a good pitcher with with some kind of a measuring device and i think they like it better if you have a pitcher you holding it to bet it's not required them and i think there's only like six to ten mass or ultimate anglers so far in wyoming the completed ten. I'm working on my second ten. And i've been trying to catch different species than i turned in for my first ten. And i i like to short twenty four total so i mean guy you know depending on where you live in wyoming you have a lot of different opportunities at it because it's twenty four species so lots of variety like keyhole has a if you went up to keyhole. Get quite a few of them. They have drum in their small mouth. All mile croppies northern pike perch while is all is i mean. They're six right there so they have the so they had the north american grand slam was well some in the hunting realm right and it's twenty nine of the big news species and this is just a state thing. They don't really have a national thing. But i'm sure they probably will someday. Just give a little more motivation to go. Try fishing other places. I guess is and other species. Like guys specializing walleyes. If they decide they want to try and get a all angler and force them to fish for something besides wall on egger musky pike or something like that. Yeah and some of the species a really hard to get like. I don't think anybody's turned into shelves and those sturgeon yet. And there's only been two or three soccer i think. And then which. I have one of them and i think one tiger muskie that i know of and i happen to be fish for them a lot so i kinda know what i'm doing but my own means tiger muskie population is really low because for about six or eight years. We couldn't get tiger musky so there's just starting to get the program going again and i think he could probably get a master angler out of out of bass lake or bad water pond probably either this year or next year but most of the best tiger muskie fishing where you have a chance to get like a forty inch bigger..

And if you're gonna freeze that fish for any length of time you know you're going on trip to alaska go ahead and scan your lays out and go ahead and vacuum seal without that layer of fat without the skin on there because they asked lime and the facts gets rancid on on fish with high all content. Golden trout are one of the worst ones. Catch golden trout and try to eat one. Eat it right away. Don't freeze it and try. 'cause they go bad really fast but if you catch one right out of the lake and i need it right there you know by the lake there. One of the best fish that are in wyoming to eat. But you don't wanna freeze them on one of patrick's fish fries and you know we talked about the uae bones but man that's that's awful close to halibut man. It's good stuff and you know you talked about the firmness of pike. One thing. I like about it just from a culinary perspective when i'm cooking. It is that northern pike holds together really well. And because it's more of a stake consistency. It's not just gonna fall apart on you like a like a fully of wall. I will so if you've never tried northern pike rice. I'm Like you would.

"In russia. Mongolia and china and so that was like my dream. Fish to catch you know besides my muskie's and stuff. So i like to rib patrick a little bit that you know what i do a lot more hunting. And he's the fishing guru rate. But when i went to africa. I took a day and went fishing on the zambezi river tiger fish and i lost the one fish. We hooked that day and it still in it stings. I know you were talking earlier about that. That one loss. That might be a state record. I'm sure my tiger fish. I mean he jumped out of the water twice. And we're using steel leader but he got off and i. I don't really need to go back to africa to hunt. I've checked that box but you gotta go cats that tiger zambezi the thing that scared me though. When we're we're we had a guide and we're on a pontoon boat and we went by a nile. Crocodile there was as long as pontoon boat. Out kidding It was up on the bank just sun and the guy kinda tapped. Her shoulder looked. Because i mean there are still a little spooky. I looked over in my job. Is i mean we're talking fifty sixty foot. Yeah you don't want to wait out there. I don't think that anyway. I understand that and tiger officials supposed to be like awesome fighters and stuff. I've always wanted to catch one. But i don't know if i'll ever africa to get one so anyway i'd read about this. Pike and eastern russia and mongolian stuff. Now is like my dream trip ago but working and stuff. I didn't have time to take off for a couple of weeks ago over there and couldn't really afford it and so i kind of put it on the back burner. Didn't really think much about it. Well then i've diagnosed with cancer about five and a half years ago. I thought man. If i'm going to get any of this stuff done. I better do it before. Because i didn't know how long i was going to have. Because they made it sound like island had like a few months to live when i first got diagnosed and so once i got where my cancer was somewhat under control. I decided to take the plunge and go to russia. And i wanted to go to mongolia. But i couldn't afford mongolia but i found a guy in russia. That was one of the. Take me out for a fairly reasonable price. And so i made the trip out there. Boy i opener when you go to another country from the us especially russia well before we get into that too much to talk about one of our other sponsors for we get in russia experience but So pk lures danny actually Can attest to this one. Because he's used the flutter fish before to catch tiger muskie's but Pk lures are amazing. Lures you can use them for a lot of different applications. There's spoons that you can use. So they have the. Pk flutter fish in pk spoon. Which are good for either casting or vertically digging. Danny i think you use them to catch tiger muskie's casting and kind of ripping them along And then they have a whole line of crank baits for open water. Trolling for walleyes for trout. For basically anything that's gonna bite. And then they have some really awesome. Crawler harnesses the. Pk wa- bler. Pk dakota disk in a few of the others.

"Fish for northern pike and as we got a little older they start taking us out there with me and my brother right below me and they wouldn't let us fish for northerns. We had to sit and watch else fish. You know bobbers right off the silo boat. They'd be cast in these big spoons droplets and catching these northern pike. And if you have ever caught a northern pike you know they're pretty good fighters and it's pretty exciting. I remember one time. You're fishing with them. And they caught four or five up to six seven pounds. Maybe which back then. That was a huge fish. When i was a little kid and a couple of them got so they get really violent when they get next to the boat when you need them and stuff and one of them had to cut the net apart to get the pike out of there and so the next day or next when i return back to minneapolis because living in minneapolis. At that time. I wrote wrote a story about this. Are there fishing trip. And how impressed i was. You know that that the cut the fish out of the net and all the other stuff so i. At an early age. I got to be a big pike fanatic but i never would they narrowed. Let us fish farm because we were little afraid. We'd get hurt because if you haven't caught a northern pike their whole heads for these huge teeth that are razor sharp. Their gill covers a razor sharp and their gill raker so anything from the head. Forwards dangerous parts of grab on one of them and that about the time. I was starting getting close to old enough to go..
