"We talked about survival last night. You know there's a saying I've always thought, don't wait until you're thirsty to dig a well. A lot of times we wait until the 15th round before we've been knocked down, before we go for help. Isn't that true? Sometimes we have to hit that bottom bottom, I guess. Just don't take things for granted. Good lives, lives that are together are not my accident. They're my right choices. The world just says you're lucky, but we know it's not luck. We know it's not luck. You don't order godly kids in the catalog. I'm a godly kid, respectful. You don't order me, you have to build lives. And I tell you what, we live in a day that, I tell you what, it's kind of sad. God doesn't give you wisdom. To see things how he sees them, and actually to see through things. To see through the deception of Satan. Look, two things I begged for in my life. I begged to be a solider, and I begged to raise my kids. He used to beg God for wisdom, because I knew his past was going to be greater than me. He used to say, if you want to mess up your life, that's your choice, but you're not messing your kids' lives up. And I don't know, I guess God, I just begged God for wisdom, and then James, he says he'll give it to you liberally if you ask. And I do believe he has. I got a lady in my church, my secretary, I'm going to be the secretary. She said, I think there is certainly something about raising kids. And if I really even know what I said, I just need to ask her. I think she wrote down everything I've ever said. And it's nice to have people listen. You know, it's ironic, people in my church now are more like me than my own kids. That's just the way it is. They're more like their pastor. They've been influenced by their pastor. My people have been influenced by me. They've been sitting under my preaching group, some of them, for 29 years. So, you know, they actually thank and remind me of how my kids would be. I see my kids, and they've kind of sometimes drifted away from different ways. And it kind of hurts me, but they become like their pastor. And, you know, so we just need to try to encourage each other, you know, hold together. You know, we're one body of many members. Amen. I think I heard one time that a car has about 30 ,000 parts. You know, it takes all of them to put together. It only takes one of them to miss malfunctions before you're in trouble. Isn't that the truth? You know, when one malfunction, you know, you have maybe eight cylinders on your car. You know, when one of them malfunctions, you lose a lot more than one -eighth of your power. Anyone in those cars knows if one plug or one wire is misfiring, it's like you lose 70 % of your power. And, you know, we got to make sure we don't malfunction on starry again. Mm -hmm. Joe, Steve will bring her own water tonight, because I'm not falling for that one yet. You know, we just need to work together as a body. You know, hey, I always tell my people, the devil only needs one heart to work out of. Don't let your heart be that one he works out of. It's a dangerous place to be, too. And, well, I think we have enough work out here. We have enough people that I think God's work, besides having Christians, amen, but Ezekiel, if you're Ezekiel 33 now, verse, I just thought we'd start at verse 31. It says, and they came unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear my words, but they will not do them. For with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after covetousness, passions, desires, things like that. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument, for they hear thy words, but they do them not. They were too powerful at first, aren't they? Man, I just read that. They point that verse, so many people are, they sit in church, and, you know, they may say, oh, it's a good message, whatever, but they just don't do them. God says, happier little do these things, amen, you know? And just knowing them and not doing them actually just makes you miserable, probably, right? Some people just have enough religion to bug them instead of bless them. Isn't that the truth? Yeah, just enough to just make them miserable without making them joyful. One guy I've told, and I've heard this all the time, but he's going to tell me in church, he says, the pastor's job is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable, you know? So I'm here to try to disturb you where you're comfortable and comfort you where you're hurting. Amen? And so we come here tonight and turn with me now to Mark, Matthew, Mark, I think, with the gospel, where Christ is portrayed as his servant. You know, the four gospels in Matthew, God is portrayed as a king, as a king, and Mark as a servant, and Mark and Luke as a son of man, and John, the son of God. And we find here one of my passages I love, and I don't know, anyone have favorite, I love, I have so many favorite passages, I guess, but I like this one because it's about four men, I guess, a four, but I guess I can't even say for sure, I'm sure there were probably men that took a man of palsy that was paralyzed through the Peter's house roof to get him to Jesus to be healed. It says there in chapter two, no, actually this just follows where I talked about it the other day about the leper that was healed, and Jesus said in verse 44, right before that in chapter one, see thou say nothing to any man that would go thy way and show thyself to the priests and offer for like cleanliness these things which Moses commanded for a testimony to them. But he went out and began to publicize it much, to blaze abroad the matter, and so much that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city. I mean, God, Jesus at the end is so well known now, it's hard for him to even, you know, move and around stuff, and set him up in the desert places, and they came to him from every quarter. So we come here now, it says here, and again, he entered into Capernaum, you know, that's kind of where he kind of made his home, where Peter was after some days, and it was noise that he was in the house. And straightway, many were gathered together in so much that there was no room for them, no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door. And he preached the word unto them, and they came unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was born of four, and when they could not come nigh unto him from the press, in other words, the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was, and when they had broken a nub, they let down a bad brim the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he sent unto the sick of the palsy, saying, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. And there were certain of the scribes sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, you know, isn't that amazing? Here in this crowd, there are some hearts that were very, very ungodly. Here they are just looking for a reason to cause trouble, looking for a reason, observing just with a critical spirit, you know, and sadly, they can be in a church, someone comes just to be a critic, but there were certain of the scribes sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, why does this man thus speak blaspheming? Who can forgive sins but God only? See, they knew exactly what Jesus was saying he was. Jesus said, I am God, you know, and that made them angry because they didn't want to receive it except that, and immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye of these sayings in your hearts? Whether it is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, thy sins be forgiven thee, or to say, Arise and take up thy bed and walk. But that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins. He said to the sick of palsy, I say unto thee, Arise and take up thy bed and go thy way unto thy house, and immediately he arose, took up his bed, and went forth before them all, insomuch that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this faction. Isn't that amazing? You know, I love that. You know how exciting when God's moving in the hearts of people. When you have a revival, you know, it's not about one person. It's about what God is doing in the hearts of people. And your testimony has brought tears to my eyes. You know, man, isn't that great? Somebody cared enough to go out and make that extra effort, and here he is in church today, almost waiting ahead on the sight of somebody who cared for his soul. You know, I had one psalmist who said, There's no way I cared for my soul. You know, tonight, that's why we're here. We're one beggar telling another beggar before we found bread telling people. I thank God I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home. And I tell you, I didn't have to make us go to church. We loved church. We loved revival meetings. Loved evangelists. You know, that was just kind of the highlight of the year, really. It was like the Super Bowl, you know? And I just thank God. We were poor. It was just like church mice. There were six kids we were poor so we could get out. But I tell you what, I remember I was a little boy. I had my own little horn, you know? I won't tell you. Because there was an evangelist. He blew up. He had a horn. And I would not get out in the middle. I wanted to be like him. I tell you what, that's the kind of heros you ought to be wanting your kids to have. My friend today, if you don't get them in church, if you don't build up the man of God, if you don't build up authority in your life, it will come back to bite you like you've never seen. Go ahead and teach your children disrespect to pastors, to the president, to police.

A highlight from Heres How Sam Bankman-Frieds High-Stakes Trial Could Play Out - Ep 549
"Even though each of these charges, if you look at the DOJ press release says, oh, it contains a maximum sentence of 20 years or five years, whatever, it's not going to be consecutive. It'll be concurrent. So the estimate I'm getting from various attorneys that I've spoken to over the past few weeks is it'll probably be somewhere in the, you know, 10 to 20 year range. Hi everyone.

The trial for former FTX CEO Sam Bankman -Fried starts next Tuesday, October 3rd. There's been a lot happening pre -trial. For instance, Sam has requested release from jail multiple times and repeatedly been denied, including as recently as Thursday morning. My personal thought was that it seemed like all these requests that the defense was putting in at this critical juncture right before the trial was supposed to begin was maybe not the best use of their time, but that's just my personal opinion. I'm not a lawyer. Why do you think they made this such a point of focus in the last few days? Yeah, so I'm actually coming, you know, I was in the courthouse just a few hours ago where this very issue was brought up and the defense's arguments were, well, the first time we asked, it was for pre -trial release. You know, this was right after Bankman -Fried was remanded into custody in mid -August. The second time was, you know, they were asking the appeals court to overrule the judge's decision to remand him. And they lost that as well. In court today, the defense said, well, you know, now we want to ask for during trial, which is why we waited until this week to make that request. And they say that they want to, you know, the circumstances are different. They're not asking for Bankman -Fried to be released from jail in the weeks leading up to trial. Now they're saying, well, you know, during the trial, we're going to have to talk to him and check with him about defense witness testimony and cross -examination and things like that. So that's why we're making this request. And the judge didn't really find that compelling. And why do you think the judge has stuck to this position of keeping Bankman -Fried in jail? So in the judge's words, there's a couple of different reasons. One being that Bankman -Fried has had ample time to look at the defense materials. You know, one of the arguments was there are something like 1300 exhibits expected over the course of the trial. And the judge asked today, you know, were these all prepared and shared with you before, I think he said September 8th, so earlier this month. And the defense, they said, yes, we've seen all of this. We've had access to all of this. Bankman -Fried was out on bail for about seven and a half months. And so the judge's argument is, well, he's had time to look at this. You know, there's no surprises here. And he said that the defense has the chance to talk with Bankman -Fried in the Metropolitan Detention Center, where he's currently being housed weekends during days that there are no trials. So, you know, the trial is not every weekday. It's going to be most weekdays. And he said, you know, you have the time, you have the opportunity, you are able to talk to your client. You're not really losing a whole lot. But he added kind of a, you know, made this ruling where Bankman -Fried will even be presented to the courthouse early on trial days where there's certain witness testimony that has to be discussed and let the attorneys just talk to him before the trial begins on those days. So he's saying basically, you know, you have opportunities to talk to your client and I'm going to give you, you know, more time to do so, but I'm not going to let Bankman -Fried out of jail. So the main focus next week as the trial begins will be jury selection. Tell us what you think that process will be like. It definitely will be interesting. I think it's probably going to be very boring from just kind of an observer perspective because it's a long process and we're going to be just sitting there watching this judge ask each individual, you know, have you heard of FTX? Have you heard of Bankman -Fried? What do you think about cryptocurrencies? But it's going to be very interesting because this is the part where we're 12 or so people who are going to determine whether or not Bankman -Fried spends the next, you know, 10 to 20 years of his life behind bars. And so I'm expecting to see maybe as mixed selection. I think if you pluck a random group of New Yorkers off the streets, some of them may have heard of cryptocurrency, most of them probably will not have, and they're going to be tasked with deciding whether or not one of the biggest figures in crypto committed fraud on the way up and on the way down. Something that was interesting to me was the prosecution said that they expected jury selection to take the better part of a day. I've seen some legal opinions that it will take longer than that. What do you think could potentially happen there and why do you think some analysts are saying that it would take longer? Yeah, no, I've spoken to a number of lawyers as well ahead of the trial, you know, where at Coindes we're trying to do a lot of kind of preview coverage, basically saying here's how it might go down. Everyone I spoke to said it will probably take a couple of days. Part of that is because this is a fairly notorious case. A lot of people will have heard about Bankman Fried and presumably formed some kind of opinion that would, you know, disqualify them from being a juror on the trial. I'm not sure where the DOJ is getting their estimate from. It's very possible that, you know, through the questionnaires that the jury pool is sent through the, you know, the kind of the mass selection process or deselection process that the judge engages in, maybe that streamlines a big part of it by kind of, you know, reducing or like immediately filtering out the people who are most blatantly, you know, either knowledgeable or biased or otherwise have their own preformed viewpoints about the case. And so the jury selection might just be focused on, you know, those individuals who have made it through those initial filtering processes. But that's speculation on my part. I honestly am not sure if it is a better part of the day that we could see opening statements as soon as, you know, next Wednesday, October 4th, which would be a pretty rapid start to the trial. And Coindesk did some work to try to suss out what it is that lower Manhattan New Yorkers might say if they were randomly picked for a jury. What did you discover there? Yeah, no, so Coindesk's Dylan and Victor went to Manhattan, downtown Manhattan to the financial district, and literally just went up to people and said, hey, we're with Coindesk. Have you heard of FTX? Have you heard of Sam Bankman -Fried? And a fairly large part of this group just hadn't heard about it. You know, they weren't familiar with it. They weren't comfortable talking about crypto. They weren't familiar with crypto. And of those who were, you know, I think they found a fairly even mix. There were some individuals who had heard about Bankman -Fried, some individuals who had only heard about crypto, some individuals who were very knowledgeable. They actually found a, you know, a Yahoo anchor who was the most knowledgeable about it naturally as, you know, order covering the financial space. But they also found people who were looking for jobs in crypto, people who were investors in the space. By and large, it seems to, you know, a lot of the people they spoke to just weren't interested or talking, interested in talking about crypto or in, you know, being part of this, being part of crypto. So if that is a representative sample of who we'll see next week at the jury pool, it'll be interesting because we'll see a large, potentially large, jury pool of people who aren't familiar with crypto. Again, on one of the biggest, you know, bang in on one of the biggest figures in the space. Recently, the defense proposed certain questions that it would ask the jurors and the government said that they felt these were quote unquote intrusive. What were some of the questions that were proposed and what was the government's response? Yeah. So, you know, the background here is both the DOJ and the defense team filed their proposed jury questions to help filter potential jurors. The defense team in particular had a number of questions about, you know, how these potential jurors felt about things like effective altruism, about political donations, about ADHD and people who have ADHD. And the DOJ response was really, you know, they felt that some of these questions, for example, about effective altruism and about political donations seemed kind of primed to, or designed to prime the potential jurors to think, oh, well, Bankman Fried was trying to do all of this in service of this effective altruism philosophy. Therefore, he was trying to raise money to donate to better the world or designed to try and prime the jury to think, okay, well, you know, political donations is fine. So these allegations about breaking the law in the way he tried to donate funds maybe is, you know, overreach or whatever. And in the intrusive part, you know, treating just kind of this question of ADHD and whether or not people were, you know, involved with individuals who had it or the DOJ just felt that these questions were really designed to try and shape how the jury would see Bankman Fried as opposed to just kind of gauge their existing biases. And so the DOJ opposed these questions and I think we're still waiting to see for sure if there's any public response on the judge prior to jury selection on Tuesday. All right.

Recently, the defense did propose a number of witnesses, but the judge denied most of them. Who were these proposed witnesses and why were they denied? Yeah, so the DOJ and defense both had a number of proposed expert witnesses. The defense in particular had a number of individuals that they said could speak to everything from the terms of service that FTX operated under to the FTX software to just rebutting certain DOJ witnesses. The judge basically said he agreed with the DOJ in rejecting all of these proposed witnesses. There were seven. He did allow the defense to call for four of them later on, but they have to meet certain requirements and fill out certain disclosure forms first. A big part of the judge's reasoning was the witnesses had just not adequately explained what they wanted to testify about or what they would say, and so they didn't have or he didn't have enough information to allow them to testify, which was functionally the DOJ's argument as well. That being said, some of these proposed witnesses are intended to act as rebuttal witnesses to DOJ's witnesses. I know we're saying the word witnesses a lot, but that's what it comes down to is four of these witnesses could come back and respond to, you know, either FTX intercircle members who are testifying on behalf of the DOJ. One of the potential witnesses that the defense can call forward is someone who can speak to the actual technical software underlying the, you know, FTX program, again, in response to DOJ witnesses. The judge did completely ban, for example, a British barrister who was supposed to explain the FTX terms of service as well as someone who was supposed to speak to kind of the crypto industry at large, saying that, you know, those witnesses and that proposed testimony seemed a bit too far afield from what the case would be about and could probably do more to confuse the jury than to clarify anything. And SPF's team also wanted to block a proposed government witness that was also denied. Who was that and why did the judge deny that motion? The DOJ proposed a University of Notre Dame professor to testify about some forensic analysis he did on FTX financials. The defense objected. They said that this witness would basically just reiterate the DOJ's claims, the allegations, but the DOJ argued that he was doing his own analysis of the data he had access to. And so it wouldn't just be stating the DOJ's claim. He would be providing his own expert insight based on his own work, you know, examining the databases that he had access to. And the judge agreed with that and said that based on what he'd saw and based on what the witness disclosure had provided, the witness was likely just speaking to his own expertise and looking at actual data as a third -party expert witness might do. And so those witnesses are allowed right now. We're still waiting on the full and final witness list, but we now know that there are probably at least a dozen witnesses that we're going to hear from over the next six weeks. And who are the ones that stick out to you on that list? I think the cooperating witnesses, so the FTX inner circle, that's former Alameda Research CEO Carolyn Ellison, former FTX director for engineering Nishat Singh and Gary Wang. I forget which one of them was the director of engineering. The other one was a fellow executive, but you know, these are the three individuals I think we're going to hear from probably first, maybe. Might hear from them as soon as next week, not certainly the week after. They're the ones who were in it, right? They were involved in this. They were part of FTX. They were part of the highs. I think we're going to probably hear from them, you know, how FTX might've fallen apart. I know from court filings, we know that DOJ wants to ask Carolyn Ellison about the FTT token and allegations that Sandbank and Freed was directly involved in trying to argue for Alameda to take a large sum of it and to potentially allegedly manipulate the price. So I think that testimony is going to be really interesting just because, again, it's the firsthand account of what happened. We're also probably going to see the defense try and discredit these witnesses to the extent possible, right? Straight out of the gate saying, well, you know, you weren't threatened with jail if you didn't testify in turn against your former boss. So I imagine we're just going to hear arguments like that from the defense during cross -examination, but either way, I think this is going to, you know, those are the three witnesses I think we're looking forward to most right now. And then once we're past that kind of initial surge of FTX insiders, that's when we'll get to kind of more, I don't because I don't think that is the right word for it, but, you know, people who are looking at it from kind of the, you know, again, forensic analysis perspective, people who are going to be able to kind of dig through and say, all right, well, you know, we've looked through the smoking remains and here's what we found. And I think that will also be interesting because it'll be really a third -party perspective on, you know, here's how this thing was set up and here's where things may have gone wrong or here's where things may have fallen apart. And getting a third -party perspective on that I think is going to be really fascinating because there'll be, I assume, a bit more objective about it than, you know, people who built it and worked on it maybe could be. One other kind of motion that happened this week that was pretty interesting or development, I should say, is that the judge did allow SPF's team to ask some of the witnesses about their drug use. What do you think will be the significance of that line of questioning? I think that goes back to, you know, a witness, cooperating FTX inner circle member saying, while we were at FTX, Sam directed us to manipulate FTT, whatever, you know, just speculating what someone could say. And the defense comes back and says, well, you know, are you sure that's what he said? Were you high at the time of these conversations or were you engaged in recreational drug use during the time you were running this company? You know, if I'm a member of the jury and I hear, okay, well, everyone was partying and on drugs and doing weird stuff or, you know, potentially, you know, in an altered state of mind, that might shape how I view the, you know, the defendant, the verdict, the whole case. So the judge did say that prior to making those, you know, kind of questions, the defense has to notify the prosecution and the judge about it. So it's not going to be a case of like they'll blindside the witnesses about this, but I imagine that's going to kind of go back to this effort to try and say like, okay, you know, Bankman Fried wasn't doing something wrong on his own or intentionally, it's just that things fell apart, but they were well -intentioned. The defense is going to attempt to, I think, pin some of the blame on legal advice that Bankman Fried received. How effective do you think that argument will be at trial? That's a really hard question to answer. I think the problem that the defense has is there's really no denying that FTX fell apart and it fell apart in like a very dramatic fashion, right? The day it filed for bankruptcy that evening, what, a couple hundred million dollars or tens of millions of dollars worth of crypto was stolen, I think. I forgot the exact amount, but you know, it was a pretty dramatic way to cap off what was already a chaotic week. So the problem the defense has is they can't say, well, FTX is fine. And so they're leaning on this advice of counsel defense. Their argument is going to be, you know, Bankman Fried was well -intentioned. He told his lawyers everything he wanted to do, and he did everything they told him to do. And so because it all fell apart, you can't really pin that on Bankman Fried. You have to look at the advice he was given and the information he was acting on. And so I guess part of the problem that the defense might have here is did they share or did Bankman Fried share everything he wanted to do with his attorneys? Did the attorneys have all the information and did he do exactly everything the way his attorneys told him to? And I don't know, you know, I'm sure we'll see answers to those questions over the next, you know, six weeks or so, but that seems to be kind of how that might play out. And it's going to be an interesting argument for sure. But again, I think it goes down to the central problem of FTX for sure collapsed and how you respond to that. One other issue is that the judge did rule that the prosecution could mention SPF's political donations. And there are charges specifically related to that that will be tried in a separate trial next year. So why were those allowed in this case? So this is where we get into what has become one of the new fun parts of being a court reporter in this case is Bahamas extradition treaties. So the original indictment that Bankman Fried was charged with back in December of 2022 did include campaign finance violations as one of the charges. But because it did not appear in the charging document that the Bahamas Police Department had, there's a Bahamas National Police, something like that, Bankman Fried's defense team successfully argued that they could not bring that charge right now because he had agreed to be extradited on the first seven charges, which were wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit securities and bodies fraud, et cetera. So what it seems like is going to happen is the prosecution is going to try and fold all of that into all the political donation stuff into the other charges, into the wire fraud charges, and say, well, you know, we have the evidence, we have the allegations, and here's what you have to look at what that means for the next trial. And, you know, you're absolutely correct. There is another trial currently tentatively scheduled for either March or April 2024, next spring, either way, where we will be going through all of this again. But a lot of that is dependent on the Bahamas. And yeah, we could probably talk about that for another hour if you wanted to. All right. Well, we'll leave that for another episode. But one thing I did want to ask about is earlier in this interview, you said that his sentence was likely to be in the range of 10 to 20 years. And obviously, you know, there's many charges and we don't know which ones he'll be found guilty of and which ones he won't. But how are you coming up with that estimate? So yeah, I should definitely be more precise there. So I personally am not a lawyer or an expert in this. I have spoken to a number of lawyers about this. And what they said is, if you have a defendant who is found guilty, so these assumption here is that he is convicted on at least one of these charges. But if he's found guilty on even several of the charges, because all of the conduct is similar, because it's all kind of identical conduct at the core, a judge, when making a sentencing determination, will basically fold all the charges into each other, right? All the conduct. And so even though each of these charges, if you look at the DOJ, press release says, oh, it contains a maximum sentence of 20 years or five years, whatever. It's not going to be consecutive. It'll be concurrent. So the estimate I'm getting from various attorneys that I've spoken to over the past few weeks is probably be somewhere in the, you know, 10 to 20 year range. Some estimates came down as low as five years, some as many as 36 years. But they all seem to base that on just kind of the allegations, the charges themselves combined with the amount of money allegedly lost, which is more than 50 million, combined with the severity and all of that. Yeah. And so 50 million is sort of like some thresholds because I think it goes in levels of severity. Yeah. And the higher the number goes, the longer the sentence. However, that's the largest threshold, obviously. Yeah. I literally looked up the federal sentencing guidelines, which by the way, is a very confusing document. I did not understand it. So I asked someone else to explain it to me, but yeah, it's the different thresholds that you mentioned. And it starts with the, I think the thousands range and then just kind of escalates up and 50 million seems to have been the uppermost that they had. So it's 50 million plus. I think the allegation is something like 10 billion loss from FTX. So 10 billions, a hair more than 50 million. Just as many multiples. So that will probably be kind of the way they calculate it, probably. And again, this is dependent on if he's convicted on one or more charges and all sorts of stuff. Yeah. Okay. Well, we will have to see how all that plays out. Thank you so much for explaining all of this on Unchained. Thanks for having me again. Always great to talk to you. Yes. Same here.

David McCormick: Bob Casey Jr. Stays Quiet on Philadelphia Looting
"Da Larry Krasner. But bob Casey has been a wall and this is also the result, as you know, of a progressive liberal ideology that wants to defund the police, does not support law and order, puts dangerous felons on the street and uh, and hasn't done anything to stop the fentanyl crisis that's killing people in tensile million around the country. And so this is all coming to a head in our urban centers. Philadelphia is just disgraceful to see. I honestly got bob Casey's always a wall. He's a wall on everything. Um, he's not just not a leader, he's really not a senator. And I'll be honest with you, I can't tell which more senator dim with it. is Fetterman or bob Casey. Now bob Casey supported Fetterman even knowing he wasn't up to the job. Bob Casey is down the line, radical Democrat. He poses as a moderate. His father was moderate. a Bob Casey the son is no moderate. But on a matter like this, when cities in Philadelphia, in our cities, all throughout Pennsylvania are united in their objection to this kind of lawlessness and brutality, and these retail stores now leaving these communities, bob Casey's afraid to speak. So I assume you've challenged him or something or saying, Bob, we can't you? hear

Elderly Army Vet Mistreated by Police: Attorney Lisa Bloom Weighs In
"Guys know Lisa Bloom. She is one of television's top attorneys as well as just helping us to navigate so many of these issues that have been popping up and just standing up for folks who may not feel like they have a big voice, so it's always an honor for us to welcome Miss Lisa Bloom of the Bloom Firm to the Hair Radio Morning Show. So again, good morning, Lisa. Thank you so much for having me and for the kind introduction. Absolutely, and listen, you have a wonderful client that I had a quick moment to chat with a little bit, Mr. John Parrish. We're going to get him totally intro here, but first I want to bring to the line one of my co -hosts, we produce a program called the Vet Talk Radio Show, which airs across my network, and Michael Hopkins is the host of that program, and Michael himself is a disabled veteran, and this story, that's what I saw this week, but it just, there are no words that you guys are going to, we're going to kind of get into this a little bit so you will understand exactly what I'm talking about. So, Michael, I want to introduce you officially to Miss Lisa Bloom and to our very special guest today, Mr. John Parrish. Now, John, you are an Army veteran, and I understand that you were a lieutenant in the Army. That's correct. Right? And so this whole thing, which happened back in March of 2022, which was the California Highway Patrol officer stopped you for a misdemeanor traffic stop as you were driving home with your adult special needs daughter. And Mr. Parrish, now, I'm going to say this, you know, with a life well lived at 80, you know, I wouldn't expect you to be out there just, you know, doing all kinds of somersaults and things like that. So, you know, so anyway, you were, you don't pose, you didn't pose a threat, obviously, to anybody. I mean, you know, so with that, right? So the officers, I'm just trying to understand this as well. So now, you advised them that you had hearing problems, vertigo, and diabetes, and they still, you were handcuffed, amongst, I understand, and you were handcuffed. They handcuffed you tightly behind your back, and literally carted you off like you were property of some sort. So they ignored, literally, I'm sure you've told them several times and that that was painful. I mean, you know, that would be the first thing anybody would do. And so, and you were left in jail hours without receiving proper medical attention, despite, obviously, that you told them over and over and over again that it was needed. So, and it really kind of didn't happen, you know, you weren't really able to, they received that adequate medical attention until after you were released. So, and what has turned out, you sustained really bad injuries, as far as I can see. I mean, this is, you're talking about a broken arm, internal bleeding, and a hand that was severely swollen. So I have to go back a little bit on this, Mr. Parrish. What can you tell us, in your own words? Is that, did you have anything you wanted to add to that recount that I just mentioned? I missed your question. I'm sorry. Did you have anything that you wanted to add to that in terms of what happened that night? That was pretty much it. That's a, well, there's a lot of details, but that's a pretty good summary. Okay. So, Mr. Parrish, how did that make you feel? Because that was the first thing that jumped out at me, and I'm going to ask Michael on this too, but that was the first thing that jumped out on me, being an Army veteran and being a lieutenant, a first lieutenant, okay, in the U .S. Army, and knowing that, you know, some of that, someone can kind of treat you in this manner. What did that make you feel like, sir? It felt like being at P .O .W. Wow. That's what it felt like. Wow. Just unbelievable. Unbelievable. Lisa, I have to turn, yes. Oh, I'm sorry. Go right ahead, Mr. Parrish, please. I mean, first of all, I never expected to be arrested, even after the officers stopped me, and then, I mean, you know, maybe they give you a traffic ticket or something. I've had a couple of those in my life, but no, they arrested me and cuffed me and took me off to jail and, you know, and all those other bad things and transpired. So, it felt like being at P .O .W., because P .O .W. are mistreated by their captors, right? Yeah, I have to tell you, Lisa, I have to turn to you on this, and you've handled, you know, you've been on our show with many of these types of cases. Sadly, there are way too many. Yes. What, yes, what can you tell us? What really, you know, this is hard for us to take. What was your take on this when you met Mr. Parrish and found out about this? I was so outraged that my tax dollars are going to pay police to bully an elderly vet in my community. I mean, there is no reason for this, and I think law enforcement just over and over again we see this abusive behavior when it is not necessary. You know, John was simply driving down the road with his adult special needs daughter, as you say, he was fully cooperative when he got pulled over, he didn't threaten anyone, he didn't make any moves towards anyone, they don't even allege that he did. And so, there was no reason to handle him at all. And then, you know, even in the California Highway Patrol, the entity we're talking about, in their rules, they say that within their discretion, they cannot handcuff people who are pregnant, disabled, or elderly. And so, John, you know, made it clear, he said something like, I'm old, and he talked about his medical issues, and complained that his arm hurt, and, you know, there was no compassion for him as just a human being to take the handcuffs off. And then, when he got to the jail, he was asking for medical aid, that was not provided, as the law requires. And now he has, John, I think, can talk to you about how difficult it is at age 80 to try to heal, you know, the body just does not heal as fast when you're elderly.

You should know a production of I heart radio Hey and welcome to the podcast I'm Josh and there's Chuck and Jerry's here too and this is stuff you should know the podcast about revenge We've done an episode on it was like a top 10 on cases legendary cases of revenge Oh, yeah, I remember that but we didn't talk much about Revenge itself and I feel it was high time. We've been dancing around it for decades now And here we are I Thought this is a great idea. So kudos to you because it Dave helped us out with this one and it's a lot of like science and studies have Sort of and I'm not gonna spoil anything but have sort of About revenge and what it means for the person getting the revenge. Yeah, I think most people How we feel about revenge it's from watching movies and it's like deeply satisfying to watch the Bad guy who deserves revenge get get their comeuppance right sure is or even be killed Just like yes that guy deserved that kind of thing. But in reality carrying out acts of revenge or They just it's not like the movies I guess is what I'm trying to say and yet there's a lot of evidence of revenge in real life so much so that the New York Police Department came out with a study in 2012 and Found out that 42 % of the homicides in New York were motivated by revenge man, so and that actually kind of underscores like a problem with revenge is That when you enact vengeance on somebody and you leave them alive almost Invariably that person feels like you overdid What in response to what they they did it was disproportionate. So now they have to strike back again And it can go back and forth until somebody dies or else somebody can die right away is the first act of revenge But the the point of the whole thing is is that once you do carry out revenge no matter if it's petty exciting somebody up for spam or Killing somebody in response to whatever Slight like road rage. They cut you off in in traffic. You don't feel good afterward You actually feel worse and that's the underlying point of this entire episode Yeah, you know my my favorite petty I don't do it, but my favorite petty revenge to witnesses It's pin and it's so dumb Everyone just settle down is on a highway when someone Is on an expressway and they clean their windows and it gets all over the car behind them Yeah, I see people all the time race in front of that person and do the same thing. Oh my god, really? Yeah, that is Petty that is Tom Petty. That's not Tom Petty because somebody was great That's just petty and I also wanted to say to you talked about Revenge coming back harder or whatever Emily has her own personal Saying like when we're messing around and I like I will do something to her Or I'll say something kind of mean as a joke. She'll she'll eviscerate me if it is and she calls it coming back double She goes I come back double. Oh boy I was one of those people that Think she gets pushed in the corner and is and man she comes out hard So it's it's a good trait and it can and one to be wary of at the same time Yes, I'm suddenly way more wary of Emily than I was before luckily I stayed on her good side You wouldn't come at Emily. Anyway, you're smart. No, so There's a lot of questions revolving around revenge if if the if we know for a fact It feels good to think about but then feels bad to do. Mm -hmm Despite the fact that when we're thinking about it, we're like this is going to feel good It's not the act of thinking about it. That feels good It's fantasizing about how good it's gonna feel to get that person back And set the universe right again to do all sorts of things that revenge allegedly does and it turns out When you carry out an act of revenge you are playing the chump to evolution and on behalf of society as a whole and That's kind of like the whole basis of a revenge. There's a Extensively in the animal kingdom and it really collides with the the modern evolved humans That live in these complex societies. We've formed today When you get those two things together an interesting podcast comes out. That's right what you're talking about the animal kingdom is also called retaliatory aggression and that is the idea that So let's say a lion mama goes out and kills an animal To leave for her little cubs to eat Another animal is like oh, you know Let me see if I could sneak in there eat some of that too The mama lion doesn't just scare this thing off to preserve that meat for the kids The mama lion goes and hunts down and kills that animal. Yes, that's good. They come back double Emily style Right. I mean like the the problem solved the hyena has been chased away But to leave your kids and go find it and kill it. That's that is Seems only retaliatory aggressive. Yeah, and this next one too. I'm gonna mention These are interesting because it made me sort of question the idea of revenge versus punishment Right because I think those are different things. Yeah, the rhesus monkey We've talked a lot about their vocalizations like they're all about the group or they should be at least and like when they find food Let's say they will tell everyone. Hey, I found food But if a rhesus monkey is ever like, you know I'm gonna have a little bit of this first before I call out and if they find that out There's a punishment for that rhesus monkey. I don't think they kill it But there is a punishment and this is the idea that these retaliatory aggressions are Deterrence it's like a punishment for everyone to see to prevent future transgressions like hey, did you hyena see that? Did you other rhesus monkey see that? So that you know would be an advantageous thing Evolutionarily speaking so that gene gets passed on Yeah Because the more the more you're prone to do that the the likelier you are to not have food stolen from you for your kids The likelier it is for your kids to survive and and your lineage to survive. So it makes sense Evolutionarily speaking this retaliatory aggression does at least right? Yeah, which I would still argue is punishment more than revenge. I Absolutely, I think you're absolutely right and there's a there's a story a couple of stories of Tigers actually engaging in what can only be described as revenge and it's very much up in the air whether what we're witnessing is actual revenge, but like you know, like there was a very famous story out of Russia where like a poacher not only shot a But also took some of their kill and that the tiger tracked the guy down found his his little lodging destroyed everything you could find in lodging and then waited outside for the hunter to come back and then kill them and that the Tiger managed to hold this idea in his head Or I think it was a her her head for up to maybe 24 hours after the the hunter shot her There's a there's a couple of stories out there that seem to pertain to Tigers Specifically that it's almost like it does contain an emotional component to it, but for the most part Yes, it's it's solving in a problem and then maybe preventing future problems among the animals Yeah, you know one of my favorite sayings is revenge is a meal best served cold Yeah, I don't know why cuz I'm not a revenge guy really, but I just I think that it's just such a great saying I just like it, you know, there's something about like oh, no, no The real revenge is like when you wait around for a while Oh, yeah, and then when you would might not be suspected you come back and take that revenge Yeah, because if you just immediately do it in response, you're a hothead and a dummy anybody can do that But just sit there and really stew on it and figure out the best way to really get back at the person that takes intellect Yeah, I agree and a little bit of craziness.
A highlight from Time Travel to 1994: A Journey into the Music and Movies of that year.
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U .S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. voice Very unique also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14 -year -old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid -1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer is Shannon Poon forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B -girl, man, you know. The B -girl, yes. And the tap -dancing B -girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.
Chuck Schumer Joins Striking UAW Members on New York Picket Line
"Schumer's for the unions really tell me how many union folks out there want an open border how many union folks are now now they come up with the figure 7 .6 million people have come across the border and by the time Biden's done it's going to be 10 to 11 million I think that's the population of Pennsylvania or something like that how many of you union workers think that's a good idea and he's processing them as fast as possible to get them work permits how many of you union members think that's a good idea I assume none of you and then I see farm workers union the Cesar Chavez union Cesar Chavez who opposed illegal immigration used to call illegal aliens wetbacks we have it on audio he did it in an interview in a San Francisco Public Radio station he would send his union members most of whom were obviously Mexican and otherwise Hispanic to the border to try and police and when they saw illegals coming across they would contact the old INS and he marched marched on that border with Ralph Abernathy who took over after Martin Martin Luther King was assassinated in Abernathy was one of the great leaders of the civil rights movement King's lieutenant and they marched on that border
A highlight from Rising Auto Theft Rates: Urban Consequences and Solutions
"Well, you see how easy this is now. Now you look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks, this is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporations, but guess who's getting the guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton Foundation gets paid the rebuild Welcome right. to the podcast. We are in the same studio today, which is kind of nice. So thanks again for downloading. If you're just listening, if you're watching or watching the clips, uh, thanks for watching as well. And just for a quick mention, so I don't forget, if you haven't downloaded our app yet, I'm noticing we're getting a lot of downloads and the cool thing is when the morning Mike's program is going Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I'm the, seeing the view count go up and up and up, which is awesome. So I know we're only, you know, we're still in the dozens. I'd like to get into the hundreds and eventually thousands, um, but it's a cool program. If you haven't listened to it, it's a quick 15 minutes to quick by morning, run down three days a week of the top five topics, three minutes each. Do a great job. They do an awesome job when we're, when we fill in the stuff. We screw the whole thing up. Yes. Yeah. We, we blow the whole, the whole, uh, the schedule, but, um, but they do awesome and they're funny. I love it. It's a quick, you know, down and dirty 15 minutes, top five items of the day. And now you get your day started off on the, uh, they, you know, I think on the right foot, they were saying this week, like, Oh, it's so negative all the time, but I think they're hilarious. They take the negative stuff that's going on, but of course the negative stuff isn't the news. Yeah. Yeah. That's what we're seeing. I mean, carjackings again, Rochester had another, you know, record night. I mean, it's incredible how that was going on. And so it's amazing is, is like the Democrats just sit around and watch this happen in every city and every city. It's insane. Yeah. I sent you an article earlier this morning about Philadelphia. Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.
Katie's Birth Story: A First-Time Mom's 20-Minute, Accidental Home Birth
"It was like 4 a .m. when I woke up I remember checking the clock and it was pretty normal for me to wake up during pregnancy and I have to go pee in the middle of the night because you know pregnancy things. And so I woke up and I was laying there for a second before I got up and I was like oh actually I think I think I need to go number two. And so I was like okay maybe I'll walk across the apartment and go to the other restroom. And once I got there I was like oh okay I think this is a number three situation. Very TMI. So I went to the other bathroom so I wouldn't disturb my husband and truly I had diarrhea for I'm not even kidding three hours and I Oh my gosh that's ridiculous. But it was like actually diarrhea. Like I wasn't there was nothing else going on. I had no reason to assume anything else was happening. And I thought it was because I had some peanut butter the day before because I just never eat peanut butter. And so I was like you know maybe it just messed with me this time. So just like you can tell hormones were high like throughout this whole story you'll see I was not thinking straight no matter like just never I was never thinking straight it was quite hilarious. Yeah so basically so I go across and like in between like you know when like diarrhea hits and you're like I need to go now in between those moments I was going to the yoga ball and I figured like if I'm up in the middle of the night might as well be doing my mile circuit and just like stretching and so I was like doing things you would do in labor which is quite hilarious because I didn't I just wasn't thinking about any of it. So I was going back and forth between the toilet and the yoga ball and just doing all my things and then I just realized at some point I was like it's been a really long time like this is really absurd I'm going to go take a bath because the bath was my comfort when I was pregnant like that's just just where you want to be when you're pregnant you know yes and yes so I go back over to the other bathroom where my husband is sleeping in that room and I turn on the bath and I'm in between the bathtub and the toilet again and it's about seven thirty at this point so that was like let's see four that was three and a half hours of literally going number three like it was like rough and so I just like reached my breaking point and I came out and I was like Ben like I have been pooping for three hours what is going on and he poor thing had woken up and was reading in bed because he could literally hear me like this is it was just rough okay yes and so I come out and he's like it's okay like you're it it's just you know it's just you're going to the restroom it's fine and I was like I don't know and so I go back in and I'm kind of like I don't know but you call the midwife like I'm worried I'm hurting the baby I'm pooping so much you know like totally like not not rational at all so I have him call the midwives and he gets on the phone and he's like hey I don't know why I'm calling I think you know Katie's just pooping a lot and we just kind of want to check with you and the sweetest midwife answered the phone and she was just like don't worry like that's totally normal for your body to clear out as you're like leading up to labor like totally normal don't even worry a thing about it and so I was like okay that's reasonable I can I can work with that you know and so I go back to doing my business and I look down and I see what I think is just like some blood and I'm like oh my gosh Ben like now I'm bleeding like call them again like something like what is going on and I keep going back and forth between like this really peaceful state to like I'm going to hurt my baby because I'm pooping so much and this this is a very poop filled story I'm so sorry that's okay that's how so many women actually like that's how labor begins for a lot of people because like I don't know if you knew this but the prostaglandin that is produced by your body to ripen your cervix and get your body ready for labor it has effects on your GI system so that's why like a lot of the time that will happen for women and honestly so many birth stories are poop filled stories so don't even worry about it that's so funny okay good that's good okay yeah so basically I had him call them again they were like okay just let us know in 15 minutes how you're feeling and I was like okay that's fine so he hangs up and then I'm sitting there and I'm like actually will you call the doulas like I I just I just think they should know if like something weird is going on because I thought I would gonna I was gonna have to go to the hospital because something was wrong you know so he calls the doulas and he's like hey just wanted to let you know like Katie's and also just stumbles through trying to explain to them like why we're calling at 7am in the morning I guess it was probably like it was probably 7 .40 at this point and so he calls them and they're like okay like keep us updated sounds like she's doing fine and he's still on the phone with her and I had gotten into the bathtub and I just like felt the urge to check myself and so I reached out and I was like Ben I feel something soft and I like just had no idea what was going on and he he relays the message to the doula and he said okay she feels something soft and the doula goes okay I'm on my way over and I was like well that's weird okay and so the doula starts heading over we call the midwife back and we're just like hey like this is going on and she's like okay you know like this is just a little weird like if you wanna come in I'll just check you we'll just make sure you're all good and so I was like okay that sounds great and so I stand up to get out of the bed and immediately just squats down and pushes and I was like oh okay I can't stand up and so I try to do it again and the same thing happened my body squatted down and pushed and now I know it was the fetal ejection reflex but at the time I was just like what is going on so that was oh let me see if I can get yeah okay so that was like 745 and so after that I was like okay like call 911 like I don't know what needs to happen but like something's wrong like I was still very much in the mindset of like this baby is gonna be hurt by whatever is happening to me right now I'm sure you had no idea you were in labor no idea because I expected to feel contractions like I expected your normal signs and I just didn't have anything except for literally pooping for three hours yeah so that was super royal so at 746 my husband called 911 and he was on the phone with them and I was in the bathtub and he was like yeah like we just don't know what's going on like something weird is up and the lady starts asking him like about my due date and like how I'm doing and all this stuff and so while he's like answering all these questions I feel a massive pop and I was like oh my goodness I think my water broke and my husband was like oh okay and so he told the operator and they were like okay there's someone five minutes away and we'd say okay great and so he gets off the phone and it takes until 8 o 'clock for the EMS and the firefighters and the police department literally everybody to come into our small tiny apartment and so that is at 8 am they get here there's like 10 men that shuffle into my little bathroom in there because we live you know in a two bedroom apartment it's not huge and so like 10 men shuffle in and I just remember this guy coming in and he's like hey like I'm Michael and I was like hey Michael is it okay if I turn on the hot water and he was like yeah and I was like okay great and so I turned the hot water back on and I just like still don't know what's going on I'm just like something weird is up but like even though mentally I don't know my body knew exactly what I was doing which is why I think I was asking for the hot water and things like that so it's very interesting this whole time like I just feel like God was really taking care of me and telling me what to do when mentally I had no idea what was going on so they get there at 8 o 'clock and he's like you're gonna be fine like can you lean back so I can check you to see what's going on and I was like okay and so I leaned back and he was like oh okay yeah you're crowning and I leaned back forward and I was like oh this whole time I've been having a baby and I didn't realize it up until literally that point when I was crowning and so my body did the fetal ejection reflex two more times and she was born which is just super wild so at 803 she was born so I think I pushed like four times total and did not intentionally do it at all they were so awesome though the team just like let me stay in the bathtub let me do my thing they let me do skin to skin immediately after I they came with a hat and like came to clamp the cord and I was like don't put a hat on my child why would she need a hat and then I made sure they did delayed cord clamping so they were just super great at honoring everything that I asked for considering it was like just such a shock for everybody quite truly so it was super awesome but literally I think from the time that like we called the midwives to like the actual birth it was less than 30 minutes so that is like kind of what I consider what the labor was because that's when things really got intense and before that it was like super inconsistent nothing was really happening so yeah that's that's my
Pinole Councilwoman and Mayor, Norma Martinez-Rubin, Describes Governing a Small City
"Hi, I'm Jared Ash with the Capstone Conversation. I'm here with Councilwoman Norma Martinez -Rubin from the city of Pinole in Contra Costa County. We appreciate you being here today. As part of your everyday job, you're a principal at Evaluation Focus Consulting, where you focus helping mission -driven foundations, nonprofits, and government agencies and public health. So that's an exciting background to be here. What else can you tell us about yourself, Norma? Thanks, Jared. Thanks for having me be part of this. I can tell you that my adopted hometown of Pinole is this wonderful little city, relatively small compared to the other 19 cities in Contra Costa County. It's bisected by I -80, which has national fame. And for those of us who are local, it is both a blessing and whatever the opposite of that is, given the multitude of vehicles for many different reasons, recreation, transportation, transport of goods, etc., on a daily basis that we get to live with. Part of my personal history is having come to the city of Pinole via Los Angeles, where I grew up, it was weird, and having the experience of living in a more urban area relative to one which has these beautiful natural amenities just within a walking distance of where I live. We're surrounded by hillsides, we're surrounded by or adjacent to the San Pablo Bay, which in my mind counters the effects of an interstate that bisects the city and divides the city, and the way our residents view issues that come before us on city council. Interesting. Let's talk a little bit about that small town, but in a big metro area. From a governing standpoint, what would you say are some of the constraints and some of the advantages compared to other towns being a smaller city? As a smaller city, we're a full -service city, so we provide and we respond, we're responsive to provide services that are essential as the local governments grow. We have our own police department, we have parks and regulations, we address land use issues, keeping in mind the topography of Pinole, and most recently we have joined with our county's fire districts to serve our city in its small size. We have a different terrain, the north side or the south side part of Pinole adjacent to San Pablo Bay is the older part of town. We were incorporated in 1903, but as history goes, in the 1950s when I -80 was constructed, it divided the city and then we started seeing more of the tract homes built on what was formerly agricultural land. So in the Pinole Valley, which is south of I -80 in our town, we have people who are surrounded by hillsides, beautiful hillsides, but as valleys go, also face the risk of possible fires because many of the homes were built alongside that range for just open space. So the constraints in a small city is that urban planning back in the day when some of the older cities in Contra Costa County were designed and built may not have considered the growth that would occur over time and the needs that people had over time given the shift in demography or population figures. In my background as a public health practitioner, population shifts are something that we've observed and have been somewhat ready for. However, we also have a history in local government and more broadly state and federal that the response to these population shifts isn't always as quickly as we see the shifts occur.

A highlight from Public Evangelism & 1st Amendment Seminar - Part 2
"They look at, you know, what is the environment? What kind of forum are we in? Is it a traditional public forum or something that is where you would have less protection for your rights? And then the next thing they look at is, is the restriction on speech content -based or content neutral? Okay, so content neutral, typically like a noise ordinance, it'll say that you can't have, you can't make noise in a certain place at a certain time over a certain number of decibels, or sometimes they'll use, you know, unreasonably loud, you know, or something like that. And those kind of restrictions are content neutral most of the time, where it's not, depending on what is being spoken, it's just the manner that it's spoken, and you can have content neutral restrictions on the time, the place, or the manner of the speech. And then on the other hand, you may have content -based restrictions, which can either be viewpoint discrimination or topic discrimination. And, you know, a viewpoint discrimination is where a particular idea or a particular point of view is being prohibited, that's being selected for a restriction by government the policy or ordinance or whatever it is. And sometimes it'll have topic discrimination, where, for example, I'll give you an example, if they say, you know, you can't preach that Jesus is the only way to heaven, we're not going to allow you to do that. That would be viewpoint discrimination, okay, because they're taking a particular point of view and say, you can't say this, you can preach about Jesus, you can preach about Muhammad, you can preach about, you know, whatever you want, but we're not going to let you say that one religion is right and other religions are wrong. So that would be a viewpoint content -based discrimination. On the other hand, they may say, you know what, just don't talk about religion at all. You can talk about politics, you can talk about sports, you can talk about, you know, social issues, but leave religion out of it, okay. That is a content -based restriction. It's taking a whole topic, a whole, you know, area of ideas or of speech, and it's saying that that's off limits, whereas, you know, other things are allowed. In either case, whether it's viewpoint discrimination or topic discrimination, it is a form of censorship which violates the Constitution, usually, okay. If there is, if the court determines that there was content, a content -based restriction on speech, they apply what's called strict scrutiny when the court is looking at, you know, how to evaluate this law or the ordinance. The court applies this test, that it was necessary to serve a compelling state interest and that it was narrowly drawn to achieve that end. Okay, that's a lot of legalese, a lot of legal terms, but what it's saying is it's very difficult for a law or an ordinance that restricts speech to pass this test. Once the court says this was a content -based restriction on speech, they're almost always going to say, therefore, it's unconstitutional because it can't meet the strict scrutiny test. A compelling state interest is a very strong state interest. Necessary is a very strong word and it has to be narrowly drawn to achieve that end, which means basically it's the restrictions that the state has imposed are the least amount of restriction that the state is not being any more restrictive than absolutely necessary in order to achieve that compelling state interest. And so the courts have said content -based restrictions on speech are presumptively unconstitutional, that they're almost always going to be held unconstitutional. Off the top of my head, I can only think of one example where it was, where a content -based restriction on speech was upheld, and that was in the case of, they had restrictions on political campaigning within a certain distance of a polling place on an election day. So you, once you get within whatever that zone was, I don't remember if it was 500 feet of a polling place or 200 feet, whatever it was, once you get within that zone of a polling place, you could not be in there with your campaign signs and your megaphones and your campaign speeches, and that is a content -based restriction. It's taking the whole topic of political speech and making it off limits just in that one location, and the court upheld that because another, you know, free speech of course is a very fundamental right, constitutional right that we have, but voting is also a very fundamental constitutional right that we have, and they felt that this was necessary in order to prevent voter fraud and voter intimidation, and they had a list of reasons why they said, we need to have just kind of a sterile zone around the polling places so that people could go there and not feel pressured or attacked or whatever the case may be. So that's very unusual for the court to say, okay, we've got a content -based restriction on speech and we're going to uphold it anyway. Almost all the time, if it's content -based, the court is going to strike it down, okay? If it's content -neutral, if it's not content -based, but it's content -neutral, such as a typical noise ordinance, then it has to, it's a different test. The court doesn't apply reasonable time, place, or manner restriction that is narrowly tailored to serve a significant state interest, and it leaves open ample alternative channels of communication. And again, that's a mouthful of legal terms, and I go into a lot more depth in this in the booklet. So, you know, if you pick up one of these booklets, there's, I have a section in there on content -based versus content -neutral restrictions, and we go into a lot more detail. And I not only, you know, I give statements of what the law is. I give you footnotes. There's hundreds of footnotes in this booklet, and I also give you examples at the close of just about every section. I give so the court in each of these cases is, when it talks about strict scrutiny or intermediate scrutiny, this, the court is scrutinizing the government's justification for making a law or an ordinance that restricts speech, and the government is on the defensive. If you're the government has to explain to the court what is its reason, what is the purpose, what is the interest that it's trying to serve, and convince the court that that is a significant enough interest or a compelling enough interest to justify restriction on speech. And then once the government says, okay, well, this is the goal that we're trying to accomplish with this restriction on our citizens' liberty, this is the goal that we're trying to accomplish, then the court looks at, okay, well, that's your goal. Now we analyze the law that you've made and determine, you know, does that law accomplish the goal within the framework of these various constitutional tests. So my purpose today is to not make you all legal experts on how this works, but I want you to have, you know, at least a basic understanding of some of these constitutional issues so that you can at least, when you come up against a restriction on your speech, that you'll have some idea, does this, you know, does this seem right or not? And I'll go into, you know, some other examples. But anyway, so that's how the intermediate scrutiny works. There are other constitutional challenges besides just, you know, whether they meet the strict scrutiny test or the intermediate scrutiny test. There are various other types of challenges. One is when there's a prior restraint on speech, which, again, is not, sometimes they're valid and sometimes they're unconstitutional, but the fact that there's been a prior restraint, such as they say you have to, you have to go get a permit in order to do whatever it is that you're doing. You have to get a permit to pass out literature or you have to get a permit to, you know, to gather together and have a street meeting or whatever it is that you're doing. That is a prior restraint. And if there's a prior restraint, then there are some restrictions that the court has imposed that the government has to meet certain restrictions in order for that prior restraint to be legal. And again, we go in, I'm just going to go through this part kind of quickly because it's, we go into a lot more detail in the booklet and I want to get to the more practical parts of the thing. But another avenue of attack for a restriction on speech is if it allows unbridled discretion to either the official that is granting or denying permission for something, or if it's unbridled discretion to, it gives unbridled discretion to a police officer in enforcing it. In other words, a law has to have some certainty to it. And you don't want to have a situation where somebody, a lot of times this comes up in a permit situation where the law doesn't give sufficient guidelines to the official that's granting or denying a permit. And so then the court says, well, that's unconstitutional because the official has unbridled discretion. If you have to go to the chief of police to get a permit to use amplification, and that ordinance says that, you know, here's how the chief of police is supposed to determine that, that, you know, based on, and then there's certain criteria, then, you know, that may be fine. But if it just says, you know, the police chief has to consider these five factors and any other factor that the chief of police feels is relevant, well, that gives the chief of police carte blanche to total say of whether to grant or deny something that invites censorship. It invites discrimination where the official can just say, well, no, I'm not granting to you, but I am going to grant to them. And there's no way to, you know, to tell whether they're exceeding their authority, you know, or violating any guidelines because there haven't been sufficient guidelines. So that's a problem when you have a permitting scheme like that or some other restriction that gives the official, you know, too much leeway as far as what to allow or not to allow. Another thing, and this is kind of related, you can have an ordinance that is too vague. It doesn't give sufficient description of what is being allowed or what is being restricted. And again, that causes a problem because, you know, somebody that's wanting to speak or exercise their free speech rights and they want to do so consistently with the law, if the law isn't clear on where the lines are, then the person may violate the law without intending to, or even more important to that from a constitutional point of view, the person may censor themselves and restrict what they say because they don't want to get, they want to be sure they don't go over the line. And so now they've got, you know, restrictions on what they're doing because the law was too vague. And so if it's too vague, it's unconstitutional. And a lot of times a vague, you can have a vague law and it also be overly broad. Or you can have an overbroad law that's not vague at all, but it's just, it's just overbroad. It restricts way too much speech than is necessary for the purpose that the government is trying to achieve. A law that's too broad is, I'll give an example. We had a noise ordinance in the city of DeLand that prohibited quote, loud, disturbing, and unnecessary noise. And we had a young man that was cited under that ordinance and his case came to court. So I said, I'll take care of it for you. And I filed a motion to dismiss the charge, claiming that the law was overly broad. And I think I said it was vague also.
A highlight from ByBit Vacates United Kingdom as "Crypto Hub" Dreams Falter
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Monday, September 25th, and today we are updating ourselves on the geopolitical landscape of crypto. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello, friends. Hope you had a great weekend. There are lots of interesting things to catch up on. And today, a slight theme in some of these stories is where different countries are positioning themselves vis -a -vis crypto. Now, the UK has had an interesting relationship with the industry. They were for a time very harsh. The Financial Conduct Authority in the UK has never seemingly been that into the whole space. But then when Rishi Sunak became chancellor of the exchequer, he declared that the UK would be open for crypto business. He wanted to make the UK the most crypto friendly jurisdiction in the world. Well, of course, over the next few months, through a variety of weird ups and downs, Rishi eventually ended up the prime minister. And of course, it might be reasonable then to ask, is the UK getting friendlier for crypto companies? Well, on that front, Bybit have announced that they will suspend service to UK customers next week in response to regulatory changes. The UK's Financial Conduct Authority, or FCA, will begin enforcement of new marketing regulations starting on October 8. The regulations require crypto firms to ensure advertising is clear, fair, and not misleading, as well as presented alongside a risk warning. Advertisements are required to be certified by firms, but this process requires crypto firms to be registered in the UK. So far, UK licenses have been difficult to obtain for non -domestic exchanges. The rules also require a number of technical changes to exchange business operations around new customers. For example, exchanges need to implement a 24 -hour cooling -off period before a new customer is allowed to make transactions. They are also required to put in place client appropriateness testing and client categorization features. These measures could involve limiting the size, for example, of crypto investments based on the customer's net worth. Now, penalties for non -compliance in these new rules are harsh, with unlimited fines and even criminal charges available as punishments. As you might imagine, the crypto industry has been highly critical of these elements, especially those that require technical changes to platforms. In response to those critiques, the FCA said that they would provide a transition period for firms that request it, potentially giving exchanges until January to come into compliance. Last week, however, the regulators said that they are alarmed at the lack of engagement with foreign firms. Only 24 firms have responded to a survey sent to over 150 companies. In response, the FCA wrote, "...this lack of engagement gives us serious concerns about unregistered firms' readiness to comply with the new regime." Now, in their announcement that UK services would be suspended, Bybit claimed their "...primary objective is to operate our business in compliance with all relevant rules and regulations in the UK." Bybit said that they were making "...a choice to embrace the regulation proactively and pause our services in this market." They said that the "...suspension will allow the company to focus its efforts and resources on being able to best meet the regulations outlined by the UK authorities in the future." Practically, this means that from Sunday, Bybit will no longer be accepting new accounts from UK users. Existing users would be barred from making new deposits or increasing existing positions from October 8th. They will have until January to manage and wind down their existing positions. Bybit, as you might imagine, is not currently registered in the UK and is based in Dubai. Importantly, Bybit is not the only firm suspending service to UK customers in light of the new regulations. Last month, PayPal announced that it would temporarily pause crypto services in the country until next year. On top of that, crypto exchange LUNO said that it would be restricting some customer accounts from being able to invest on the platform until further notice. Bybit CEO Ben Zhao had flagged the firm's exit earlier in September warning of how overly broad the regulations are. He said, "...FCA has explicitly contacted all the major players — us, OKEx, Binance, everyone — and asked what our plan is to deal with this new law. And the new law is that if you use English as a language, they will see you as trying to solicit their users, so you cannot claim that you are in reverse solicitation. Everyone is in trouble. So everyone is thinking of plans of how to deal with this new law." George Morris, a partner at Simmons & Simmons, explained that the marketing regulations had been enforced for securities firms for decades but were now being expanded to cover the crypto industry. He said, "...the rules are extremely complicated and they're quite wide -ranging. It's not just UK firms that are subject to these rules. Anyone with a website that can be accessed in the UK is subject to these requirements." So there are a lot of different elements of this. One challenge is, yes, these advertising standards. But the bigger issue is this whole need to evaluate client suitability and potentially restrict investments. Practically, that either means a ton of financial disclosures from customers that they would have to manage and verify, or there's simply some self -attestation checkbox, which might not be that effective. Basically, with a set of marketing regulations, the FCA have figured out how to limit small retail's ability to buy crypto in the country. Now, one thing that is notable is that we haven't heard anything from the really big international exchanges yet in terms of how they're dealing with this. But in any case, it seems like a big detriment for UK crypto. As Leon TK put it, so much for the UK being a crypto hub, failing already. Now, speaking of places where there is more optimism, last week was, of course, the token 2049 conference in Singapore. And that led to a lot of different discussion around how different the Asian environment for crypto felt as compared to the US and European environments. Indeed, while Western jurisdictions seem to be bogged down with regulations that are unclear at best or hostile at worst, the vibes in Asia are reportedly immaculate. Major conferences around Asia during September saw an uptick in attendance, and regulatory regimes across South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan appear to be giving the crypto industry a clear set of workable rules to allow firms to re -establish themselves coming out of crypto winter. The block's Frank Shapiro spoke with some conference attendees and reported on an optimism emerging in the East. One conference attendee said that South Korean retail is flocking back to crypto. They argued that young investors in particular view real estate and equities as massively overvalued and out of reach, so are instead opting to buy cryptocurrency. They said they don't buy houses, but they can buy tokens every week. There is a huge market. Another attendee spoke about the difficulty of accessing the Korean market due to South Korea's notoriously tough corporate climate for international firms. They said the liquidity is insane, but it is siloed and protectionist. You have to speak Korean. On that front, crypto custodian BitGo recently partnered with domestic juggernaut Hana Bank due to the difficulty in accessing the market without a local connection. What's more, one anonymous trading firm said they had been waiting five years to operate as a liquidity provider on domestic exchanges in South Korea. They said when they open up, we can be first in line. It's a great retail market. To get a sense of scale, the largest Korean exchange, Upbit, regularly outperforms Coinbase in terms of spot trading volumes. Then there is of course Hong Kong. Their new regulatory regime is off to a tough start in some ways with fraud investigations into crypto exchange JPX becoming public earlier this month. The most recent update is that there have been 11 suspects brought in for questioning and losses have been estimated at 178 million across 2 ,265 victims. Local police have said that the ringleaders of the operation are still at large and have enlisted the help of Interpol. Some are referring to JPX as the largest financial fraud to ever hit the city. Yet despite the major investigation, there are currently no signs that Hong Kong regulators are seeking to reverse course on unexpectedly open crypto regulations. Indeed, on Monday, the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission said that it would be releasing the full list of current applicants to ensure that users are able to identify false claims from exchanges. The theme appears to be the same across multiple Asian jurisdictions. Basically, that individual incidents of fraud and malpractice haven't tarnished enthusiasm for the industry as a whole. Another conference attendee told Chiparo, This Asia trip blew my mind. The excitement in Korea and Singapore is the polar opposite of what's going on in the U .S. Alex Vannevik of Nansen wrote, Vannek portfolio manager Pranav Kannadi added some color around how local investors are thinking about the space as well. On September 14, Pranav tweeted, Conversations were mostly positive and a key question was, We're in a crypto winter right now, but when should we expect the next bull run? Not a single convo mentioned the merits of the tech or whether the space survives, feeling optimistic. Now, hopping from Asia over to Europe again for a moment. According to a report from Fortune, Coinbase considered acquiring FTX's European business in the wake of FTX's November bankruptcy. Apparently talks never progressed to a late stage, but the preliminary interest highlights how important international expansion is to Coinbase, particularly regarding its derivatives products. Before the bankruptcy, FTX Europe was the only European firm registered to provide perpetual futures trading. And while derivatives trading remains heavily restricted in the U .S., both Coinbase and Gemini have launched offshore trading venues this year to provide derivatives markets to international customers with a keen eye on Asian regions. For Coinbase, the pivot to derivatives could provide a much needed boost to flagging spot volumes. According to Kiko Research, derivatives volumes in Quarter 2 of this year were six times large than spot. Now, the entity that became FTX Europe was originally acquired in late 2021 for 376 million. The firm was already licensed in Cyprus at the time, which allowed it to access European markets. Since the bankruptcy, the entity, along with its valuable license, have attracted interest from Crypto .com and Trek Labs as well. According to documents viewed by Fortune, Coinbase expressed interest immediately after the FTX bankruptcy and again as recently as last month. That said, FTX Europe has also been in the crosshairs of the U .S.-based FTX bankruptcy team for clawbacks. The estate launched a lawsuit against FTX Europe executives claiming that the original acquisition was a horrendous business decision, arguing that FTX effectively paid 376 million for a $2 million operating license, and on top of this, the sale of FTX Europe seems like a difficult task with active litigation surrounding the firm. In July, the U .S.-based FTX estate said, The FTX debtors' professional advisors have concluded that there is no realistic possibility of a sale. However, last Thursday, they said, The FTX debtors are committed to maximizing the value of FTX's assets to drive customer recoveries. As such, the FTX debtors are continuing to evaluate whether there are viable options for the sale of some or all of the assets of the FTX Europe business. Now one small aside on Coinbase. Arkham Intelligence claimed to have mapped Coinbase's bitcoin wallets and according to Arkham, Coinbase holds almost 1 million bitcoin worth around $25 billion at current market prices. This would amount to almost 5 % of the bitcoin in circulation, similar to the amount held in wallets believed to be owned by Satoshi Nakamoto. Arkham's report showed that Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around 10 ,000 bitcoin, and the firm believes that Coinbase has additional bitcoin holdings which are not yet labeled and could not be identified. According to data published by CoinGecko, Coinbase only owns around $200 million worth of this gigantic bitcoin stash, with the rest attributable to client custody. However, staying on the Europe question and how valuable this Cyprus license actually is, with Europe's MICA regulations coming into force from June of next year, some firms are beginning to warn that a clear lack of guidance could lead to disruption. The MICA rules were intended to provide a comprehensive framework, but there are still numerous grey areas. One of the major problems surrounds stablecoins. There is currently no guidance on how MICA stablecoin regulations will apply to foreign and decentralized issuers. The default scenario seems to be a ban in Europe unless these issuers can obtain the appropriate licensing, with no arrangement to recognize approvals in other jurisdictions. The European Banking Authority has warned that there will be no grace period for coins already on the market. The EBA and its sister agency, the European Securities and Markets Authority, ESMA, are currently taking public consultation on how the MICA regulations should be implemented. Relatedly last week, the head of legal at Binance France said during a public hearing hosted by the EBA, we are heading towards a delisting of all stablecoins in Europe on June 30th. This could have a significant impact on the market in Europe compared to the rest of the world. Now, Binance CEO CZ quickly walked back the comments claiming, it was a question taken out of context. In fact, we have a couple of partners launching Euro and other stablecoins in fully compliant manners of course. A blog post from Binance explained further, stating that they would be required to delist stablecoins that fail to gain registration in Europe and that no licenses have been granted to stablecoin issuers currently. Binance wrote, While we are confident that there will be constructive solutions in place before the mid -2024 deadline, if left as is, this could have an impact on the European crypto market and the competitiveness of European crypto exchanges in the global market. Now the requirement that stablecoin issuers are EU -based could cause further problems for decentralized organizations. Thomas Vogel, a partner at law firm Latham & Watkins said, So, this is sort of the challenge with MICA. As comprehensive as the regulations are written, how they get implemented is still fairly up in the air. There was commentary around the time that MICA was being voted upon that it could either be a big step in giving the crypto industry a clear set of rules to function, or work as a de facto crypto ban depending on how it was implemented and whether enough licenses were granted. Now, with a little over nine months until MICA comes into force, there is still time to ensure that rules are workable for existing firms, but it appears that there is a lot of work left to do in that regard. Anyways, it's definitely a story to keep an eye on, as something that was seen as largely positive could become quite bad quite quickly. However, friends, that is where we're going to wrap for today. Lots going on in this fascinating world of crypto. Wherever you are enjoying it from, I appreciate you listening. And until next time, be safe and take care of each other.

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/25/23
"Were you hardwired into this program Mike? Kinda, yeah. This was an actual hit. The theme song of this was an actual hit on the actual radio in 1976. We have a happy day's cast birthday. That would be Potsy. Potsy is 74. I have no idea how old Ralph Mouth is. Well, they're all in their 70s. It's a weird birthday too because Mark Hamill, virulent liberal Luke Skywalker, he is 72. And you know, you just pause, you stop and you think about the career and what happened. The great Christopher Reeve would have been 71 today. That 1995 horse accident, man, I still haven't scrubbed my brain of that and what heroism and activism. So anyway, big showbiz birthdays. A lot going on in the news. You want to do some new stuff or the book, the article? Well, let's do both. Yeah, the book comes out this week, the Fox News book, but let's start, let's not bury the lead. This Washington Post poll has people in hysteria. I mean, they are running through the streets of DC with their hair on fire. This is kind of unusual. I've never seen a media organization like the Washington Post produce the results of a poll and then trash their own poll and bang on it. Right. It's an outlier. This can't be real. This can't be right. I mean, it's devastating news for Biden if it's to be believed. Now let's face it. Polls are quirky. Here's why polls kind of matter. We kind of, they don't. The reason they don't matter is because Lord knows we saw polling about the big red wave in 2022 and that didn't quite work out for us. So let's remember before we get too excited about polls that they are subject to change dramatically. But here's where it does matter. It does give a person like Donald Trump momentum. There is an appearance of momentum. There is the facade of surging and momentum, which kind of feeds upon itself. It just, it just snowballs. So it's real. I mean, it's very, very, it's very, very palpable. And it becomes even more and more unlikely that anybody's going to overcome him. But we never know. A lot can change. We still could, we still could change. How about the debate Wednesday? I heard you mentioned driving in. I thought I saw Burgum. Yes, you did. I rectified that a couple. He did. He managed to get 3 % in Iowa, 4 % in New Hampshire. Speaking of polls I'm skeptical of, there's one, but bless his heart. He seems like a good guy. It seems to be wasted time. I have a very short appetite for wasted time. How about wasted money? How about the money he's spending on the ads? You know what those ads cost? I know. And they're all, I see, I see six Doug Burgum ads every day on Fox news, speaking of Fox news. Every ad I see on Fox news for Doug Burgum, I think how many families of police officers would that help? Or how many poor people would that feed? Or how much, how much of a border wall would that fund? It's his money. I know he can do what he wants. But what a waste of money. It seems to be. Unless, unless he comes in third in Iowa or New Hampshire, kind of punches a ticket out of the month of January. And I mean, stranger things, well, not many stranger things have happened, but then maybe, maybe he ends up with some, how old is he? Is there running mate buzz? You're not going to have a North Dakota running mate buzz. There's not buzz about him over here at the 7 -11 down the street from the airport. Buzz. There's no Doug Burgum buzz. Here's the conspiracy buzz about the Washington Post poll that you just mentioned is that this is on purpose. They want to show Biden as desperate so that in the liberal and the Democrat ivory towers, they can really get the ball moving on replacing him with somebody who might have a prayer of winning. So that's not without some merit. I mean, you know, they got to be sitting around saying, this is our guy. I mean, last week at the UN, at one point it was utter gibberish. And you're looking, I'm thinking my Lord, that's the commander in chief of the United States of America. So the Democrats have to see this. Mark, no way he'll be the nominee. No way he's going to run. Shall I ask you? I mean, okay. I'll ask you again. It's a flow chart.

"Important mayoral election and a long time in decades in the perfect guy to be mayor of New York right now, Curtis leave. I've worked with him known him for a million years. Honest, hardworking, Nobody better. Nobody better on the subject. Crime. We don't have them yet. He's not there. Oh, well, I think I'm for Eric Adams. Now. No, it will find him. He'll turn up. Kurt is going to be with us in a second, but seriously the hardest working guy, Uh, And obviously, you know, he's devoted his life to fighting crime. Nobody better at that. And the other thing is just, uh, straightening out New York just cleaning it up. You know, I know Katherine Garcia was the sanitation commissioner. But this was during the de Blasio years and I don't think anybody looked around New York during the de Blasio years and said. Boy. Are these streets clean? What a job that sanitation commissioner is doing. Nobody said that. But Curtis is one of those guys. When you walk around with him like he's got to pick up every gum wrapper, straighten up everything. And that's the kind of mayor you want. You talk to top police guys, police commissioners, Although they're all behind Curtis, they may not say publicly You talk to Rudy Giuliani. He's publicly endorsed Curtis. What about other things? The economy all? Hey, Larry Kudlow endorsed Curtis. He'd be the perfect mayor right now. Uh, do we have Kurdish it? We don't have them. This is how Oh, we got him. We got him. I go. So again, Uh, vote for Curtis. I'm for Curtis. He'd be the perfect mayor right now. Curtis Sliwa, are you there? Oh, yes, a mark come right outside of board of elections Take borders in Queens. The confidence see it both the Republicans and Democrats who are part of his patronage system once again. Has proven to all voters. You can't trust the outcome into you Got it? You got appeal for the three people who are waiting to get into the general election against me, which will be decided on November 2nd they've spent a year and a half campaigning raised millions. Their staff are biting their nails down and they can't even get the vote right. They can't even count the vote right with all the fancy technology, the additional days of voting, early voting, absentee ballot voting and the voting that we will all you still on the day of the election. So are you worried that in November there'll be some funny business with the counting Mark Simone. At the rate we're going. I may not learn who my opponent is until maybe November, 1st Yeah. Hey, we want everybody All three candidates have gone to court. They have a right to sue and right police show. Nobody trusts the process. Nobody trusts the board of elections editorially, whether it's just a post or the Times or the Daily News says. We have to take a Miley Cyrus wrecking ball to this. The voters. The taxpayers deserve better and in the most sophisticated, technologically efficient city in the world, we can't even count the votes, right? Yeah. Hey, when these people that say all Republican can't win, Republicans have won five of the last seven mayoral races and you're also an independent, right? That's the way for people to vote for you. That's right, Mark. I am also running on the independent party line, which, as you remember, Michael Bloomberg spent millions of dollars to procure he would not have become mayor on the Republican line alone. Have to spend any money had volunteers who went out and got the signatures necessary to qualify me on the independent party line. But also like the other differences. The demographics have changed since the days of eight years of Rudy Giuliani 12 years of attack. He is the governor and 12 years of Bloomberg's The mayor. The demographics have shifted dramatically. Are far more left wing progressive, led by AOC on loud crazy Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez, the Democratic Socialists of America and the Justice Warriors as a result of that, because I'm a candidate who can go into neighborhoods where the only Republican recognized his Abraham Lincoln on a $5 bill. Have a distinct advantage in being able convince people to vote for me whether as a Republican or on the independent party line to make a difference because they've grown up with me for 42 years as people said yesterday and Audrey Beach in the Bronx and the day before in Coney Island, Curtis Sliwa. He's one of us. He's been with us all through the years. They don't really know Eric Adams that much. They don't know Kathleen Garcia and they certainly don't know Maya Wiley who, as you know, it's been secured behind her mansion with private security and does not venture out with the real people. Yes. And the things that usually labeled a Republican with won't work against you. You're not a big trump guy. You're not a crazy, right wing far right guy. You're not. I mean, you're you're somebody who's got enough Democratic appeal as Republican appeal. So, uh, when you agree, crime is the only thing people are going to vote on right now. All they're talking about his crime, crime and crime. And, you know Mark Simone, you've been involved in political campaigns. They spend a lot of money to put together a focus group. My focus group is the subway. And the subway is the best cross section of people who definitely tell you what's happening in their neighborhoods. Tell you what's happening in the subways. And most importantly, they want to hear from you what you're going to do. So I'm able to test out all of my positions on the people who matter the most the people who live in the neighborhoods and the people who ride the subways. Yeah. Listen, I've known Curtis for years. Hardest working guy in the world. Honest, there's no scandal. The only the only thing people try to stick on a missed 15 cats. What, But that just shows a good heart, right? I mean, 15 cats like Mike. We got one extra over the weekend that we rescued from the shelter. It's now 16 or that chat. That poor cat would have been euthanized and that's what my wife wanted answer with your birthday yesterday. She said Curtis. I just want to rescue another cat before the euthanize it from the shelter system. That's why when I'm bad will have a no kill shelter system. We're not going to be telling any dogs and cats are animals. We're going to find them a home of their own. The other thing. Is it a 350 square foot apartment? 328 square foot apartment. As we say in New York were one Turley. It's his studio right off of West 87th Street between Central Park West and Columbus. I'm glad I have it because you remember mark for a while there with all the bills that I had in all the child support. I was sleeping on the floor radio station for a while, So thank God financier, rescuing me like she's rescued Those 16 cats. Well, I want to point this out. Elon Musk, who is considered the greatest genius in the world, just announced he's moving into a 375 square foot home, he said. This is the way to live simplicity. Narrow everything down. So you are in a good class there with with Elon Musk. Pretty amazing CC Mark I've led and Elon Musk is followed. Next thing I'll be advocating Bitcoin crypto currency when you get a slice and a coke and you're not nearby Pizzeria. Yeah. Hey, So if it's Eric Adams he's going to. You know, I'm a police captain of police, police police. But you've worked with more police commissioners captains. They're all going to be behind you. Crime fighter. I think you've gotten beat by that. And you talk about Garcia sanitation. Nobody thinks they did a great job. So wouldn't you think you'll easily beat either? Of those two? Yeah, well, I think the most important thing is Mark is that you say where were the three last summer when black lives matter in Antifa with turning demonstrations into looting and shooting and rioting at night?.

It's clearly tank but without the track without the actual shooting. Part of it doesn't have the does have what they do. Attached to these are basically like ramming Things to ram doors veterans so they literally looked like tanks and they pretty much are tanks biggest vehicles. I've ever seen that wasn't like a you know a moving truck rhetoric. Semis a huge huge humvee type side. Absolute super armored up. It's definitely a military vehicle. It's not something that tries down the road every then think of it like this when you have fifty six agents swarming a property fifty-six agents that's how many agents were basically involved in the crypto six. So they don't go in with just like a couple of people like you think they actually have like a military force when they do these rates more than fifty. Six were involved with the crypto six by a lot. It's just that fifty fifty six this residents right. So between the several properties there is more than apparently in nineteen properties. So i don't think it was.

Deeper law enforcement agencies typically claim that no warrants are necessary in situations where police may be met with deadly force for his part and celaya was suspected of illegal possession of firearms.

There might thank you. What's up? Well, I was watching the incident up in Washington yesterday, and I was curious is that Z how you felt about the police reading this? Uh, for that for that, uh, incident yesterday. Well, that should have been a lot more of them. But of the cops that were there, You know, they did what they could do. They were gonna be overrun. It didn't matter. Right, Right. Well, I think it said he had Maura there, they wouldn't have been overrun. And I also noticed. None of the cops had nightsticks or made. I don't even think they were carrying a gun. To be honest, I didn't see guns on him. Obviously, there were plenty of photos of them with guns, in fact, pointing guns at people trying to break into the chambers. Well, I know they did. I know they have nightsticks. They had these little fences in front of them. My red, like three or four guys trying to hold a fence up against about 100, other people. So I think that was a big big reason why the whole thing went haywire. But I've noticed you've been trying to blame Trump for the incident where I can't see any reason. The truck should be Uh, held responsible for this. Not one that one reason at all. I can't see we get that. Really well, I went to the rally, which started at 11 in the morning. And he said, We're going to march to the capital and that he would march with them. Of course he didn't.

The police, they're not allowed to shoot somebody left and less. Their life is in great jeopardy of severe injury or death, which is exactly what they believed at the time. It was. It was an incorrect thought. Why would they think that? Because because a mob was coming after them. Model was not coming after them. They were coming up to take over the room. They want their job to guard the room. They didn't have enough of them. They should have fled the scene. That's why they shot or it was very poor police work. They should they whoever They shouldn't have had anyone to shoot out in the first place because you're not supposed to take over the U. S. Capitol. Lot of things you're not supposed to do, but you're not supposed to shoot an unarmed young girl. That's just a protester.
