A highlight from Neglect of Domestic Issues: Americas Growing Concerns with Karoline Leavitt
"Donald Trump is the only candidate in America, on both sides, that cannot be bought. He is running because he loves this country, he loves this country's people, and he wants to save it from the hell that Joe Biden has put it through. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests, and my fellow citizens, America's comeback now. starts right All right, welcome back Financial Guys Media Network, Mike Sbarroza, in for another exclusive interview today. I have the pleasure of having Caroline Levitt, a spokeswoman for MAGA, Inc. with me today. Caroline, thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me, Mike. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So if you didn't get the hint, MAGA, Inc., she is working, you know, I shouldn't say for the president, but working on the president in terms of the campaign and plugging what he does really well. Caroline, I've seen you on Newsmax, I've seen you on Fox News, a lot of different places, and you've said a lot of great things. I saw you go at it with a Ron DeSantis campaigner the other day, I liked that, that was a lot of fun. Let me just talk about a few talking points, though, about the president and issues that the left is now claiming the president has. So just this week, he was in, was it New Hampshire he was in, South Carolina it was. Yeah. And he went to a gun store and now they're saying that he violated his legal obligations, he went and bought a gun. From everybody that was there said that was not true. Your thoughts on the left now saying he should be put in jail for buying a firearm. Honestly, it's completely unsurprising at this point. They will do and say anything that they possibly can to try and attack President Trump. He was visiting a small business, visiting a gun store in the great state of South Carolina. The owners there are big supporters of his, and they had gifted him a Glock that was ingrained with Trump 45. And then the Democrats, you know, absolutely went ballistic in trying to say that he was violating laws. And it's just ridiculous. This is how, this is what they do. They go after President Trump for absolutely everything, but then they turn a blind eye to the real crimes committed by their own party, namely Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, who almost evaded charges on a federal gun violation, which he's now facing an indictment for with an attorney that was handpicked by Merrick Garland, who's from Biden's home state. So the corruption goes on and on and the Democrat side of the media says nothing, but they're constantly attacking the former president. Voters see right through this crap, really doesn't matter. You'll see that in the polls shortly.
Fresh update on "ron" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Okay, Kevin McCarthy is out as speaker. We could examine that for a full hour. What went right, what went wrong? The entire Democrat party said we want Kevin out, and eight Republicans said we want Kevin out. So the whole Democrat party, eight Republicans, they want Kevin out. But we don't have time to examine that as much as we probably should. Never happened before in American history. Front page of the New York Times. McCarthy, first speaker out ever. Now, there's plenty of melodrama to examine, but this is worth talking about. This only happened because there were promises made about appropriation bills, appropriation votes, and continuing resolutions that were not kept. We, on this program, we said 930, 930, 930, 930. I think our show was one of the few shows that really increased the attention on 930. The grassroots were not just looking at this as a typical spending fight. 930 was a line in the sand. And I remember in the weeks leading up to 930, you know, I was texting some more moderate members of Congress like, I don't think you guys understand the grassroots are taking 930 very seriously. This is not a time just to ignore it. This is not a time just to cast aside. And they thought they could do the Washington D.C. thing. And they did. 45 days CR. Chuck Schumer celebrates it. Pelosi celebrates it. Biden signs it, which was a gut punch after there was massive disappointment with the debt ceiling bill, massive disappointment. And we don't get those kind of 12 appropriation bills. We got nothing. We got zero. We got nothing. And so then all of a sudden it was as if all bets were off. Matt Gaetz says, I'm going to do a motion to vacate. People then believe him. And then, boom, he called the bluff. Yesterday, the vote occurred and Kevin McCarthy, first speaker in American history, to be vacated. The chair is vacated. There is no speaker. There's a speaker pro tem, bow tie man, Patrick McHenry. Kind of like the guy. He kicked Nancy Pelosi out of her office yesterday, her hideaway office. Why we didn't do that the first day we took over Congress is a little strange to me. But we have to move very fast because we could examine what went right, what went wrong. Here is a fact. We're on very risky ground right now. We are in a risky, let's just say, environment. This could go really well. We could get a much better speaker. We could get a more conservative speaker or we could get a worse speaker. That there is no guarantees. I'm going to I'm going to prove it to you. The Democrats voting to remove McCarthy means that they see an opening. They see a window to get a unit party speaker to get someone that could unite both the Republicans and the Democrats and get rid of all the investigations and the weaponization of government. They wouldn't get Hakeem Jeffries, but somebody like Don Bacon or Dusty Johnson or have two speakers like a co-speaker type relationship. So we have to make sure that doesn't happen. That's a risk. I'm not saying it's a guarantee, but there's also an opening where we could get a rock star. So let's start with the most obvious one. People are saying we have to have Donald Trump as speaker of the House. I think that would be awesome, but it's also not realistic. There are going to be 15 to 20 people in the House Republican Conference that will not vote for Donald Trump as speaker of the House. First of 18 Republicans in the House conference that are in Biden districts that do not like Trump. And then let me also just mention a friend of the show, Chip Roy. He's he endorsed Ron DeSantis and goes around the country raising money for Ron DeSantis. Chip Roy is not going to go help Donald Trump become speaker of the House. And I could go through the list from there. Now, should Donald Trump maybe tease it, introduce his name? I think that would be fun. I think it would be interesting. But time is too precious here. This is not a PR stunt. Now, Trump is saying he's open minded to do whatever it is to help. But we need to count the votes, get a good conservative speaker in, because time is running up. This is not January where we have a little bit, oh, we have, you know, 10 months. We are already expiring this Congress. And I'm going to also show to you we have to start recruiting candidates and raising money or else we're going to lose the House for a generation.
A highlight from Prioritizing American Families: A Disconnect with Career Politicians with Stefan Mychajliw
"American families are struggling to put gas in their car to pay six dollars a gallon. They're struggling to buy milk and eggs and groceries. People are really hurting in Joe Biden's America. The difference was crystal clear on that debate stage. The vague ramasami talked about his positive America First vision of how he's going to improve the American economy, put money in the pockets of people. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, America's comeback starts right now. We are live with Vivek Ramaswamy, deputy communications director and friend of the financial guys, Stefan Mihailu. Stefan, how are you? That's right. I'm a financial guys client and deputy comms director for Vivek Ramaswamy. I say that's a great one -two punch. That is. It's a great thing. So tell us a little bit about the overall feeling from Team Vivek or the Vivek camp, I should say, about the debate this past week. Well, I actually drove over with Vivek Ramaswamy here to the Reagan Library and there was a mission to do two things. One, let Vivek be Vivek, be presidential, be above the fray. We knew the attacks were coming. We knew the career politicians on that stage were going to attack Vivek Ramaswamy. And why? Because if you're, you know, getting kicked in the rear, that means you're out in front. So we're wholeheartedly expecting attacks from career politicians is exactly what happened. And so I'd be very concerned if a lot of the career politicians on the stage did not attack Vivek Ramaswamy. They did, and we are more than pleased with his sharing of the American people, what his America First vision is to build on the success of Donald Trump, to build on what Donald Trump laid down that foundation with Vivek Ramaswamy as a candidate for president now in 2024. So you mentioned being the hunted, and I talked to you at a different interview about this, but in debate number one, Stefan, people were trying to just learn who Vivek was at that point, right? He had a couple of zingers. He had a pretty good performance in debate one, but as debate one ended, he was getting attacked and mauled by everybody on the debate stage that night. And then debate two, they started right after him right from the get go. And I do agree with you. I think that was a very interesting thing to see. Hey, you know, and I'll tell you, Ron DeSantis didn't take that right. That beating that, or that, that try to take a beating like that. Nikki Haley didn't, Tim Scott didn't, they were going after one, well, two people, Donald Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy on that debate stage. I was really shocked at the fact that now Chris Christie has a potential running mate in his campaign of vengeance and anger and grievance against Donald Trump. And it's Ron DeSantis. Ron DeSantis attacked not only Vivek Ramaswamy, but Ron DeSantis attacked Donald Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy appeared presidential. He's staying above the fray and he's letting the American people know he's not running against Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis or any politician on that stage. Vivek Ramaswamy is running for the American people. So while we were in the green room, basically watching the debate unfold, we were very thrilled that all the queer politicians went after Vivek Ramaswamy and look, it's no different than what the queer politicians did in 2016 against Donald Trump. History repeated itself. The fact that they were going after Donald Trump in 2016 and they're doing the same thing with Vivek Ramaswamy. So let's look at a couple of those attacks that he received, Stefan. Number one was the TikTok, the TikTok attack with him doing a video. Was it Jake Paul or one of the Paul brothers? Many of the candidates on the debate stage had an issue with him doing any type of TikTok due to the China influence with TikTok. Your thoughts on that or Vivek's thoughts on that? Well, look, Vivek Ramaswamy did business in China. He saw how basically dirty and crooked the process was. So what did he do? As he said on the debate stage, he got the hell out. Now compare that with Apple and Nike and LeBron James who stayed in China, who's profiting from China. So Vivek Ramaswamy says all the time he is going to declare independence from America's greatest enemy and that is communist China. And who better to take out an enemy than someone who knows the enemy. And so as far as TikTok is concerned as well, look, Republicans, shockingly, are in the business of basically not playing within the rules and parameters of a campaign and letting Democrats run all over us for the past few decades. The Democrats are on TikTok. That's how you reach young voters. And that's exactly what Vivek Ramaswamy is going to do. Play by the rules and reach young voters. So I want to ask that question because Jake Paul actually tweeted about Vivek this week about this exact issue and I agreed with what Jake Paul said. The majority of young people between the ages of let's call it 12 and 30, their primary platform is TikTok, right? I mean, that's where they are. And was this totally calculated by Vivek Ramaswamy to get into that voting base because everybody's on Twitter, everybody's on Instagram, but TikTok and everyone can have their feelings on TikTok, Stefan. I don't personally love it either, but was this a calculated move? Vivek has feelings on TikTok. He is crystal clear about empowering parents to make sure that kids 16 and under are not on any social media platform, because as he says all the time, we don't like kids engage in highly addictive drugs like alcohol or tobacco at a very young age. And so Vivek Ramaswamy, his president, says he'll do the same with social media, empower parents and make sure they know that their kids are not on any of these platforms when it comes to running for president of the United States, you have to talk to voters in every means necessary. The Democrats are taking advantage of this medium and so too is Vivek Ramaswamy. We're here to win an election and talk to young voters. That's the way he's doing it. Before we get into the specific issues of the debate last night, I do want to talk about two quick things. Number one, what was Team Vivek's thought about the way that that was moderated, the way that the debate went? It looked very sloppy from afar. I was not in the room. I was not there like you were, but it looked very sloppy. It looked very messy with people talking over each other, people going over on their time, the moderators not asking pointed questions, getting lost in the shuffle. What were the thoughts from Team Vivek? Well, look, as a former news anchor, I know how hard it is to basically try and round up feral cats and get them to play by the rules. For the most part, Vivek Ramaswamy did. The most important rule that he honored was Reagan's 11th commandment, speak no ill will of a fellow Republican. That was the most important rule when it comes to either the moderators or the debate platform or being here in Reagan's presidential library. Don't speak ill will of a fellow Republican. Vivek honored that commandment. He talked about his positive America First vision, how he's basically going to increase and strengthen GDP growth, strengthen and protect the border using the US military to bomb cartels, keep us out of World War III, all the other career politicians on that stage just in the same way they treated Donald Trump in 2016. They wanted to attack and attack and attack not only a fellow Republican, but a business owner and political outsider. It happened eight years ago in 2016. It happened again in the second GOP debate here at the Reagan Library.
Fresh update on "ron" discussed on Tech Path Crypto
"All right, so he's kind of touching on Coinbase there a little bit, but the point being is, you know, FTX's real scenario was an offshore company that obviously had U.S. customers, but at the same time was doing these nefarious scenarios. And they got caught. And that's a good thing because now we've got at least some sort of liability that FTX is going to now face in courts. This could actually end up being a good thing. You have, but it's going to be a narrow sliver of opportunity here to really spin this. I'll get to that in a minute. But he mentioned something about Coinbase that is important because Coinbase is the biggest exchange in the land. They are the black rock of crypto. And if you look at what they're doing, Coinbase is pushing abroad getting steam. But a lot of uncertainty. Remember, they still have a big lawsuit here with the SEC. Right now, their announcement this week has secured a regulatory license in Singapore. We actually, I think, retweeted that. U.S.-based crypto exchanges, international posts continue to go out there. It makes sense for Coinbase to lean in into international initiatives, given the still heightened regulatory risk in the U.S. I don't think this is going to be a long term play. But if you look at strategic moves by Coinbase, this is a natural evolution of Coinbase. Even if we had regulation, these guys would continue to expand internationally. So this is only setting up, and it's not even a safety net for Coinbase. This is just their strategic, I think, business plan and roadmap to get out there and get into some of these Western markets where Binance has been kicked out of and or is leaving these gaping holes. So there is some opportunity here for Coinbase as a whole. I want to go over to what all of this means, because you've got the fight in D.C. that could slow down Congress. You've got Congress already at odds with each other and you have the lawsuit and the trial going on now all at the same time. How does this affect crypto? Let's go over to the Blockchain Association and listen to what Ron Hammond had to say. Listen in. But Coinbase really has stepped up and said, look, the fights here in D.C., we are committed to the United States and we're committed to resources here in the United States and D.C. to educate Congress, to educate regulators and to showcase in D.C. why crypto is important for the future of the United States. And so the plan was, hopefully, was after this whole shutdown drama that we would have a vote probably again in October. But it's looking more like November now. The closer we get to that 2024 election and we're almost a year out, all of a sudden, all bipartisan politics goes away and folks start retreating back to their bases. And it's my team versus your team. And that's when everything grinds to a halt in D.C. We're already seeing that right now, a little bit with a shutdown where folks are saying it's my team versus your team. But the Republicans are a lot more splintered on their teams. All right, so that's the scenario that is playing out. And we've kind of explained that. But the question would be, what is our best hope, you know, for this to actually happen? Because we were thinking even our, you know, our research team and ourselves were thinking that October was the win month or the no win month. And it looks like November could actually be the month where this is going to come in. Let's listen to what Hammond had to say about whether or not this does happen in terms of best hope listening. Now, there are been some rumors going around recently. Again, Politico report on it, Punchbowl report on it recently, too, that Patrick Henry gave an interview saying, you know, look, the Senate Bank Committee, my Senate counterpart, they're doing completely different things than we're doing in the House. You know, we're focusing on crypto, capital formation and deist privacy. They're more focused on marijuana banking, exec compensation and banking regs. So we are in two different camps on two major different issues. But if we were able to make a trade of some sort. But this does provide a pathway potentially for crypto legislation to move forward to the president's desk. Again, a lot has to happen. A lot can mess this up. But this isn't one of the first few times we're seeing kind of a light at the end of the tunnel. All right. So he is right. There are some things that are on the floor right now that could be offered up in exchange for a crypto vote, especially a stablecoin vote. So there is, and to his point, there is a window here. It's a narrow window. But the other pressure you have is this FTX trial. This could actually blow up in our face. And that's a concern. If you look at that. This was a tweet by Ron just in the assessment of what people said, hey, it's the worst possible time for crypto as a lobbyist and position right now just because of the SPF situation, which this could get really crazy. I guess fortunately, it's not televised because if it was, I think we'd end up with a Deaf Amber Heard kind of scenario and that would give us the kind of publicity that we don't need. But at the same time, this is also going to give us a lot of, you know, I think, flight under the wings of how Congress is going to perceive crypto, because they're going to be hearing all of what's happening within this case. I want to go to this last clip here with Ron Haben that says, all right, what if we could spin this if there is a possibility? And this is where you guys can help. I'll talk to you guys about that in a second, but listen in. And so we've seen FTX kind of being pulled in two different directions when it comes to supporting or opposing legislation. And so our concern is of the 300 plus members of Congress who have not sat in a crypto hearing ever before, who may not even know what Bitcoin or Ethereum is, are they going to listen to the headlines and say, look, actually SPF is all crypto, which we all know it's not the case, or they're going to say SPF did this fraud. That's why we need to pass legislation to make sure this doesn't happen again. And so we're trying to really thread that needle.
A highlight from It's Over.
"Brand bigs for one week, this is what I have to deal with. She's pissed. So you know the saying, if the cat's away, the mice will play. So it runs away and like people are not going to fucking work. Sure, it's actually absolutely manic in there. I take a few minutes break just to get out of the madness that's going on. It's definitely the biggest conference that I've ever seen. And I'm running around like a mad person. I'm absolutely having the time of my life. So we're at token 2049. I'm not going to lie, it kind of looks like a bull market. Like it looks incredible here, I've met a lot of cool fans already. And now we're going to the Birdgate yacht party. So it's my disclaimer, it's my first yacht I've ever been on. So I'm super excited for that. What's up, Brian? Did you see there is drama in crypto land, or at least in influencer land. Crypto Rover took Miles' tweet, now they're fighting with each other. So you can see over here, Miles, congrats on surviving the longest bear market in Bitcoin history. They'll still call you, keyword, lucky next cycle. Crypto Rover, exactly the same tweet. Yet in the next cycle, many will still label it as luck. So he did change like one line. And there's another one over here, look at this one. Here he's showing the stablecoin market cap going down, Miles. And then you've got Crypto Rover, stablecoin market cap going down as well. We're just in that phase of the market cycle, everything is boring, people are copying each other, fighting. Yeah, welcome to the bear market. One of the things we've spoken about a lot this week is around people stealing our content. People repurposing our content or copying our content to try and get clout. And there's an account called Crypto Rover. And we've seen that recently Rover's been copying our material and tweeting it as if it was his own. And then what happened is, Ron found out about it and he confronted on what? On Twitter, he literally typed it to Rover, hey, why are you stealing Miles' tweet? And then two days later, Rover copied one of Ron's tweets. If you think about it from the perspective of the Twitter algorithm, it's a really smart strategy, but I think it just lacks a bit of integrity. You've got to understand, people work hard to try and bring creative things on Twitter. To just take someone's information and just tweak it and then take clout for it, it's not cool. Now, I know Dan. Dan's quite a smart guy. And it disappoints me to see that that's the tactics that he's resorting to. As we're approaching the yacht, I look to my right and I see Crypto Rover. He's here. And I'm thinking, this has just become an incredible trip. Good, you're pushing through, eh? Still living in South Africa? I am, I am. I'm going in January for something. You must come see, you must let me know. Yeah, let's do it, bro, I'll take you around. Have you seen Ron yet? What happened there? No, not yet. Have you seen him? No, not yet. I probably will see him in the coming days. Probably by then, we're going to go to the... Yeah, definitely. Because I was confused, I was like, what the hell, you guys met each other then? I don't know what happened. Because, like, from my opinion, what happened is that first of all, I was like tweeting and Rand was posting on my account, reacting to my tweets like, oh, this is fake news or this is that. And I sent my sources to him and he doesn't reply. So I thought, okay, maybe he's got something against me, I don't know. And then like the glass note shark about the bear market, like so many people tweeted about it on the internet, tweeted about it five times, but with a different text because I tweet 40 times a day. So sometimes I post the same stuff. And you said I was copying now this or that. In the end of the day, you can literally see my page that I posted it four times before. So you're going to try it, you guys are going to chat it out? I definitely want to chat it out. We need to come together, we can't. I don't want to have to be with anyone. So his side was saying that, you know, he was posting these things a while back and they actually possibly copied him and he posts 30 to 40 tweets every single day. So he needs to use stuff and things like that. I don't know, it didn't sound super convincing to me. I like the guy personally very much. I've met him a few times. But I do think he was wrong in this instance. And when I got his side of the story, I wasn't super convinced. It's just a bunch of egos and I just don't swim in that lake.

"Speaker Kevin McCarthy. But the big question is what comes next? Congresswoman Pramila Paul, one of the most liberal members of the House, tells CNN that moderate Republicans should join them in a power sharing agreement or at least elect Hakeem Jeffries of New York, the next speaker. We Democrats will govern in the same way that we governed for the last two years when we had the majority with a very slim margin. We were able to get a tremendous amount done. But that seems unlikely as Democrats went along with Representative Matt Gaetz's effort to remove McCarthy. In the meantime, Republican Patrick McHenry of North Carolina has been named temporary speaker. Senator Maria Catwell is demanding hearings on the fentanyl crisis. Specifically, she wants the Committee on Indian Affairs to address the disproportionate death toll experienced by Native American communities. We want to make sure that at the federal level that local communities, law enforcement, treatment centers need more help and support. That after a roundtable hearing the Washington Democrat held earlier this year, Republicans on the committee have not yet responded to Cantwell's request. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is picking up several endorsements here in Washington State. More from Northwest News Radio's Jeff Pogel up. up Lining behind DeSantis are several key Republicans including former State Party Chair Susan Hutchinson, State Senator Phil Janano and King County Councilman Reagan Dunn.

Utterson, Fortunato and Dunn joined have all Ron DeSantis's campaign team here in Washington. Jeff Pogel on Northwest News Radio. Families across the U .S. including here in Washington say it's been tough to get the new COVID vaccine for their kids. Northwest News Ryan Harris talked to health officials. Supply chain disruptions are not only keeping the vaccine manufacturers from making enough of the 2023 2024 COVID shots to go around, but also to get them delivered. Then providers open appointments because they've ordered a certain number of doses, only to find they're canceling appointments because their came order up short. However, Heather Drummond, the state health department's COVID -19 vaccine director tells me they were promised the supply will right size within a month of FDA approval. So really hoping in the couple next weeks and definitely by the end of the month that anyone who is seeking a COVID -19 vaccine will find one across the state. A member of our team was also told some COVID vaccines were under a recall, but County King Health's immunization program director Libby Page says, we haven't heard of any recalls. Turns out it was just a lag because when the new shots were authorized, the old ones were immediately deauthorized. So they had to be pulled while the new ones began shipping. Ryan Harris, Northwest News Radio. One of the big takeaways from a new survey UW's from Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation is that confidence in vaccine is very low. survey The of people in 21 countries find vaccine hesitancy for all vaccines and not just COVID. The main reasons people gave were worries about side effects or that vaccines are incompatible with their personal beliefs. IHME's Dr. Ali Mokdad says leaders need to lead by example. And sometimes people in different countries when they don't trust the vaccine or they feel a vaccine is provided for free in a country where service is you usual, have to struggle to get it and pay for it. We need to overcome that and say these vaccines are for free because it saves a lot of lives and money and to build that trust will take time. Mokdad says a campaign with a consistent message and trusted voices would go a long way to boosting vaccine confidence. Time to check in with Bill Swartz for a Beacon Plumbing Sports update.

A highlight from AI Today Podcast: AI Glossary Series Data Science, Data Scientist, Citizen Data Scientist / Citizen Developer, Data Custodian
"The AI Today podcast, produced by Cognolytica, cuts through the hype and noise to identify what is really happening now in the world of artificial intelligence. Learn about emerging AI trends, technologies, and use cases from Cognolytica analysts and guest experts. Hey, AI Today listeners. Want to dive deeper and get resources to drive your AI efforts further? We've put together a carefully curated collection of resources and tools handcrafted for you, our listeners, to expand your knowledge, dive deeper into the world of AI, and provide you with the essential resources you need. From books and materials, ranging from fundamentals of AI to deep dives on implementing AI projects, to AI ethics, tools, software, checklists, and more, our resources page will help you on your AI journey, whether you're just starting out or you're well on your way. Check it out at aitoday .live slash list. That's aitoday .live slash l -i -s -t. Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host, Kathleen Walch. And I'm your host, Walter Melzer. And you know, we really have enjoyed listening to some of you tell us about how you're using some of the content not only from our AI Today glossary series, which is not only available here on our podcast, but also on our website. If you go to cognolytica .com, we have our, in our resources section, this big AI glossary. It's got hundreds of terms. And you know, we update these terms. It's not like we write it once and we forget it. We find ourselves constantly updating them, especially as terms and terminology do continue to change, or maybe we make some clarifications, and of course, we add new terms all the time. So that's part of why this glossary series, you know, will continue for a while. So if you're not already subscribed to the AI Today podcast, you should be, especially if you're enjoying this specific content on the glossary series as we dive into terms. And you know, we're going to continue doing that on today's podcast, but I wanted to let you know that, you know, we also have some great interviews. We've already had some in the past with folks who are doing AI and implementing AI Today, some of our CPMAI practitioners, but also we have lots of things to share about use failures cases and of AI, and you know, we're entering some interesting times with AI, you know, successes and failures, you know, things that we thought might be great, turn out not to be so great. And then also things that we didn't really expect to work out are working out. Here we are, you know, six years after we started AI Today podcast, still talking about AI and not running out of things to say. As a matter of fact, in the early days of AI Today, we were a weekly podcast. Now we were like biweekly, sorry, semi -weekly. We're like twice a week. So, you know, that means that we got a lot, even a lot more to say nowadays. So stay connected, be part of our network and keep yourself informed and successful on AI. Exactly. And subscribe to AI Today if you haven't done so already, because as Ron mentioned, we have a lot of podcasts still queued up that we, you know, potential interviews, interviews that we already have lined up. So definitely subscribe to get notified of all of our upcoming episodes. But sticking with our AI Glossary series, we want to sometimes present just one term, sometimes present a grouping of terms so that you get a better understanding of how these terms kind of group together and why we're presenting them that way. So in today's podcast, we're going to go over data science, data scientist, and also the term citizen data scientist or citizen developer and data custodian, so that if any of these come up, at least you'll have a high level understanding of what they are. So data science, what is it exactly? Well, it's the domain of study focused on using scientific, mathematical and analytic techniques to extract useful information from data and translate business and scientific informational needs into the specific requirements for data analysis. So there's methods and approaches and tools that are focused on extracting, you know, those informational needles from data haystacks, and it's applicable to a wide range of business problems from descriptive to predictive to projective analytics. And if you're not familiar with those, we'll link to that podcast where we went over all the different types of analytics. And, you know, the idea and the domain of study for data science, it really deals with information at small scale as well as very large scale. And it does things like leverage statistics and mathematics and computer science, big data analytics and data wrangling to be able to provide answers to analytical questions. So as you can imagine, that's kind of the domain of study. But then what are data scientists? Yeah, and I think, you know, the data scientists obviously, you know, perform the role of data science, right? They are focused on the collection and analysis of data to solve these business related problems using these data driven techniques. So data scientists, you know, sometimes actually have that title data scientist, right? Sometimes they perform the role of data scientist, even if that's not their title. So really, it's more like the sometimes it's the mindset and the tools and the techniques, right? That's important. So what data scientists do is they translate business requirements into specific hypotheses or analytic ideas, and they go and extract useful information from data to provide the solution to those requirements. And so there's a couple of sort of tools and techniques that data scientists use to address these big data analytic requirements. Obviously, there's statistics, probability and math. Math is the language of data science, statistics and probability, and having a firm grasp on that and all those concepts, right? Then they also need, to some extent, ways to actually access and tools and technologies from manipulating, collecting and preparing large data sets. We had talked about in previous podcasts, data science notebooks as sort of the environment of choice for data science and tools like Python and R as languages, as well as even languages like Julia and Scala, but primarily Python and R for data science and data scientists. And then, of course, a grasp of algorithms and computer science methods for deriving insights, right? Building models, using algorithms and training data to do whatever the analytic task is, predictions. That's what machine learning models do, classification, regression, clustering, all those things, right? And then, of course, some grasp of data centric approaches, including data centric methodologies like CPMAI for running data projects, but also methods for understanding how to deal with testing and validation and data preparation. So there's a lot of stuff there. Sometimes you'll see data science as an overlap, a Venn diagram between skills and math on the one hand, skills in computer science and IT and another, and then certain amount of business and domain expertise that overlap is the data science and data scientist role in your organization. Exactly. And so sometimes, you know, you may not be formally trained as a data scientist or have that in your specific title. And this term citizen data scientist or citizen developer has started to come into the lexicon. And it's this concept that your primary role is not that of a data scientist. So that's not your official job title or you're not a machine learning engineer or data engineer, but you create machine learning models and other data science outputs through the use of no code and low code approaches. And so we had a podcast on no code and low code. Basically, they're using these tools, a citizen data scientist is using these tools to come up and help with, you know, creating their own machine learning models, but they're not necessarily formally trained and that this isn't their primary job. So you may hear this term citizen data scientist or a citizen developer come up. If it does, then you'll at least have an understanding of what it is. And there's also a term data custodian. So a data custodian is a person or group of people that are responsible for the safe storage, transfer and use of data. The data custodian is not a data owner, so it's important to understand that, but it just serves as an administrative role over the data. So some organizations may have a data custodian, and if they do, maybe you have data custodians at your organization. It's just really responsible for that storage, transfer and use of data. You want to make sure that you're doing it safely. So that's what the data custodian is. And we again want to present these terms at a high level so that if they come up in conversation, then you can say, oh, OK, I've heard of the term data science or data scientist. I know what that means or a citizen data scientist. But of course, understanding these terms at a high level is one thing and understanding how to put them into practice is another. And that's really where CPMAI methodology comes into play. So I know that many of our podcast listeners are CPMAI certified and we have thousands now across the globe that are CPMAI certified. If you're interested in learning more about what CPMAI is, I encourage you to sign up and take our free Intro to CPMAI course. You can go to aitoday .live slash CPMAI to sign up.

A highlight from Kevin McCullough
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas Show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -Lug himself, Eric Mataxas. Hey folks, welcome to the program. If you're like me, last night you were able to watch the debate and you deliberately skipped it for your mental health. That's just where I am in life right now. I caught parts of it which made me wince and cringe, sometimes wince and cringe. I never wept, but you know what, it's probably better for me to find out what my guest thought. He may have watched the debate. My friend, Kevin McCullough, we call you votes tridamus because you are a prognosticator, a seer, a prophet politically speaking. Kevin McCullough of that Kevin show, how are you? I'm well and I can see some things very clearly today. There should be no more debates. These exercises in futility, and that's what they've turned into, are becoming embarrassing to the cause of what this election should be about. And last night, it's just hard to put into words how bad this debate was, from its execution to the policies, to the answers. It was just nothing good about it. Some people in my audience care about this. I'm in Irvine, California. I'm in a hotel room you people can see. I'm speaking today, so today's Thursday in Costa Mesa. So if anybody wants to come and hold my hand and hug me about the sadness of the debate, or just talk to me or get book signed or whatever I'm going to be tonight in Costa Mesa, you go to my website, ericmataxas .com, and you can see me and talk to me and hang out and whatever tonight in Costa Mesa. This is Thursday, folks. And tomorrow, there's a prayer breakfast here in Irvine that I'm speaking at. But the reason I bring this up, Kevin, is because I rarely have time to turn on the TV. And last night, I realized, oh, I'm pretty wiped out. Let me turn on the TV. Let me just look at the debate just to see. I literally really couldn't bear to watch it. So as someone who watched it, I'm talking to you. Am I being cruel or unfair? Because it was unfair. What little I saw was genuinely unbearable. No, as I was saying just a second ago, from the way it was structured, to the execution, to the answers to the substance, the format's wild and out of control. There's not really a possibility of getting very deep on any one of the single questions. And I think a lot of the questions that are being asked are not the right ones. And so as I've watched, and I didn't watch all of last night's debate in real time, I caught up on a bunch of it after the fact. But as I've sat through both of them now, it is easy for me to ascertain that no one in this field on that stage last night is serious about becoming president. And they're not biting into the enormous lead that the former president has only built on since the first debate occurred. The first debate, they had 11 million viewers put to put that in perspective, Eric, in 2015. For the first debate, they had more than 15 million viewers in 2020. For the first debate, they had about 18 million viewers. You're talking about a diminishing return a, a much less interested Republican base watching these, and they're not they're not going anywhere. And in the meantime, it's putting even with some of our better idea people on display as amateurs, even with Doug Burgum on the stage, hard to believe. Yeah. That would be like a rematch between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson. You're telling me people, Lisa Hutchinson was not able to be on the stage this time, as far as we know. Yeah, I think he took a, he took a face shot in the early rounds, and he was in his dressing room. Honestly, the thing there, what I said on Twitter this morning, was that they acted like it was 1985. We are living in a time in America, where most people see, we are in freefall, hell has been unleashed. Things have gotten so bad on so many fronts that it is, if you don't believe in God, which I do, and I trust in him, but if it weren't for that, I'd be scared to death. What is happening in this country? And they acted like it's 1985. And we're gonna, we're gonna have this conversation. And I thought, this is this is bad. I mean, the way the the deep state has been weaponized to go after Donald Trump, for example, I don't care if you're running against Trump, if you like Trump, but if that doesn't strike you as, as fundamentally un -American and sick as anything, as though, you know, we were being bombed by China, it's pretty bad. They seem not to be concerned. Well, they're responding to questions that have been supposedly thoughtfully put together by the moderators that are doing the debate. And Ron DeSantis did a little bit more of this last night, all of them to have done more of this, where he actually came with a little bit of an agenda to give little speeches every time that he was given the opportunity to speak. And he got more things out on the record than what he was asked about. But that should be the strategy of every candidate going into every debate. That should be the strategy of every thinker going on every media outlet that you can. Sometimes, Eric, it's better for me to go on Fox or Newsmax or somewhere and have something that I'm more intent on saying that what they want to ask me about. And if you're, if you're running for president in times of crisis, and I don't, I don't view the period that we're in right now as a peaceful time. We're not actively at war with anybody, but we are actively at war with evil on, on almost every front. So we need, there needs to be an urgency. There needs to be a sense of, we cannot phone it in and do it like we've done it in the past, especially knowing that we are going to run up against probably illicit, illegal, cheating schemes, trying to keep the election from actually being determined by the people that have the right to determine it. And before people criticize me for that, we've replaced the population of the bottom eight states in just illegal entries into the country over the last three years. Well, let's do that in a minute, because you wrote an article at townhall .com. That is one of the stunning nightmares that they acted like not, not really a big problem. But what you just said about cheating, I think most Americans know the Democrats cheat at elections. How is that not the most important thing to discuss when you're talking about a presidential election? Are you and I imagining, are millions and millions and millions and millions of Democrats actually cheat? Now they've done it for decades, but now we know that they have turned it into a science. They are at war with we, the people, they don't actually care about winning in a fair way. They just care about winning. How is that not unbelievably important and something that has to be discussed? But the Fox hosts and the Latina from Univision, which is another bizarre thing, they seem to act like January 6 was Trump supporters being violent. They seem to act like the election was fair. Biden won. What world are they living in? All of them. I don't know what to say. And obviously, I think Vivek and Ron DeSantis, they're the only two candidates that I can take seriously. I've got problems with them a little bit. But the whole thing was like, they were all play acting like we're living in a different America than the one most of us are living in. Well, I will hold one exception out to what you just said. And I believe that Nikki Haley had a sense of urgency about her last night. And she did in the first debate as well. And I think that's why she's now out polling DeSantis in several polls, is that people are beginning to understand that as a former governor, she probably has a shot at the VP pick. I don't think the VP pick is going to come out of this group. But if Trump did want one that I'm seeing kind of be serious on the issues that are the most pressing, she's the one that kind of gets the vote in terms of... I think of her as deep state, neo -con, next. All right. That's fine. I'm just saying in terms of her performance thus far. We've got you our wonderfully. I'm so glad that we do. We'll be right back.

A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks. Welcome. We have been told that tonight there's some kind of Republican debate. I'm not sure if that's a rumor, but it might be true. And in case it is, we thought maybe we should talk to somebody about it who can tell us what is going to happen. So we have back our friend Gavin Wax. He's with the New York Young Republicans. Gavin, welcome. Eric, it's great to be back and I'm looking forward to the vice presidential debate tonight. Oh, the vice presidential debate. Well, you know, I think Trump said it best that all these guys are looking for a job or trying to apply for a job. It's really just a job contest. No one actually on the stage is going to become president, certainly not this cycle. So we'll see how things unfold if that's how it's looking. It's funny and true, obviously. Many funny things are true. Many true things are funny, but you're right. Now, who tonight's debate? I'm planning not to watch it. What who has qualified, quote unquote, qualified to be in this debate? As far as I'm as I'm aware, it's nearly everyone from the original debate. I think maybe Asha Hutchinson has dropped off. You know, he was polling at, you know, point zero zero one. Now I think he's pointing at polling at point zero zero zero one. So, you know, that that decimal difference makes all the difference in getting on the stage. But you'll see the usual cast of characters. Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Chris Christie, you know, those are the guys that are probably most will get most of the eyeballs, will get most of the attention. People will be seeing, you know, what they do, what they say, if they mess up, if they don't mess up. And then the others are basically just background actors, you know, just adding some ambiance to the stage, I assume. Yeah, it's really not ambiance, actually is the opposite of ambiance. But I know what you mean. Let me ask you, though, for sure. Chris Christie doesn't want to be Trump's vice president because he seems to be there only to express his peak and animus toward Donald Trump. He seems to to be there only to fulminate and to pummel the air with his horrible words against Donald Trump. Yeah, no, you're correct. He probably falls into the camp of people that is not that is not looking for a job, but it is on a on a revenge tour. Many people have accused President Trump of only running for a revenge tour type of campaign. But in fact, you look at individuals like Chris Christie, the only reason he's Donald J. Trump, President Trump, who he believes wronged him or slighted him after the whole presidential transition in 2016 or, you know, Christie didn't even do his job.
Did Chris Christie Expect to Win Votes With His 'Donald Duck' Comment?
"By another chris example christie if you're a chris christie hater and you think the guy's a goofball and a clown what did he do last night to prove the opposite he came on the stage like a jerk started screaming like a jerk he says donald trump's jerk a for dumb nicknames and then he throws out an even dumber nickname we're gonna call you donald duck because you're ducking in the bay really bro really did you how long did it take you to think that up like an hour or two were you sitting around with a focus group i mean seriously what changed nothing last night don't think about the debates the way the media is trying to frame it who had a breakout moment there's no that's not what this is about it's about who changed their political trajectory for the better who altered a political narrative that they were a failing candidate and look last night like a winner and what was it that they did that's the only way to look at this and the answer is i don't think anybody did i don't think anybody did and they say that as a guy who has never ever said a bad word about ron de santis he is the best governor in the country hands down i live in florida no one's gonna tell me what happened in florida he's done an amazing amazing job the fact that i like donald trump and prefer him this cycle doesn't mean i have any any not a single period period i'd like to see him put a forceful debate presentation out there and by the way i don't think i'm wondering i should say of all the candidates last night i think some of them damaged especially themselves tim scott that drapes thing is like unforgivable for me it's just so dumb christy look like a goofball he just he's up on the stage he's like the designated a -hole on the stage you know designated they survivor have the

Andrew, how are you? I'm good. How you doing, Jimmy? I'm good. I just realized I didn't put my phone on do not disturb. So I'm going to do that as we speak. And I'm going to let you know that I had a reader last week for my mailbag column on S .I. com, send it an email and said, when is Marchand's next appearance? So here we go. You made someone happy. Thank you that person. You made someone happy by coming on today. Let's start with this. A lot of media news to get to. Have you heard anything from ESPN or do you have any intel about how they feel about the last two weeks? How the staggered Monday Night Football doubleheader has gone? Because I've gotten a lot of emails and tweets about it. I'm sure you have as well. Yeah, I haven't talked to anybody specifically about how they feel about it. I mean, it is an NFL decision. ESPN is not in control of how those games are scheduled. Maybe they have some say, but it's the NFL decision. Yeah, I don't like it. Actually, in our podcast with John, it was my who's down this week. And the reason I just feel like I kind of said this on our part, it's too it's like having two quarterbacks and you have none. Right. And now if you have Joe Montana and Steve Young, there are two awesome games. Maybe that'd be better. But I just find my attention split and I don't know. And even at like halftime, I wouldn't recommend you go to the other game. Like I get what they're trying to do there, but it's not the NCAA tournament. And usually it's in like the second quarter, third quarter. So I personally don't think it really works that well. Now, I think they want to avoid I'm not positive, but I think they want to avoid that 10 30 late window. We used to get the Monday night and you get the, you know, crazy crew, either Chris Berman or Golick and Greenberg, you know, some of those crews back in the day. They probably don't want that late night game where, you know, you're losing that East Coast audience if it gets too late. But I don't know. I don't think this necessarily works. See, I like it. And what are the tweet? What are the tweeters say? Most people seem to not like it. Yeah. And why do you like it? The more the merrier. Give me as much football as possible. If I can watch eight games at one o 'clock on Sunday and four or five games at four o 'clock on Sunday, I can handle two games on Monday night. So, you know, I have two TVs. I put one game on each TV and two is better than one for me. That's just how I feel. Yeah, I've been a little running around these last couple of Mondays when this happened. So I may be a little bit, you know, my opinion skewed a little bit by that. It hasn't just been like I'm just chilling and watching, been running around a little bit. So perhaps that's, you know, maybe I could be swayed. I will say, you know, I don't know. This is a whole separate discussion. I would love to know your take on this, but I always feel like it's a little tough sometimes to criticize people in this podcast when I also have to book this podcast. So I try to be careful. Yeah, I notice you're very soft. That's what you're trying to say. Sometimes. So I'm sure this guy will never come on again, but they gotta do better than Chris Fowler on the secondary game. Just not, it's just not working. Chris is not a great play -by -player. Right. He was a great host, studio host. Can I say one thing? Yeah. He's on tremendous tennis. Like I watch the U .S. Open every single day. I think he's great on tennis. It's football where it's just something feels off. Well, tennis is also slower. And like you look at people who do really well at the slower sports. Like, you know, Jim Nantz is better than Chris Fowler, but Nantz is really his best thing is golf. And I think he's an OK NFL play -by -player. And at the end of his college basketball run, he was definitely, I don't know, OK is probably, you know, he was OK there as well. And I think if you look at Fowler and his history, now he's been doing play -by -play for a while now. And he has gotten better. Like when he first started on the number one crew, I mean, if I were covering it then, that would not, I probably would not have been that kind. Because he has gotten better, but it's not really good enough. And he's the rare case, I think with Herb Street, that Herb Street makes him better. Usually it's the play -by -player who makes the analyst better. And yeah, I think you're right. And I also think, you know, in fairness to Fowler, you know, ESPN put that crew together. They replaced Levy there and they had a year or two under their belt together as a team. And, you know, not the full team, but him and Riddick, Levy and Riddick, and then Jadolowski. And I think they kind of don't, they underestimate chemistry. It takes time to build it up. And so I think that hurts. And he just, he's a college guy too. It's hard just to come into the NFL. I know he, you know, he's talked how hard his schedule is with the U .S. Open. And then, you know, doing a game a couple days later. And then doing a college. And so, you know, that's hard. And so, yeah, he's not a tremendous play -by -player. To me, this is just me, it felt like when ESPN gave him that gig, it was more about ESPN trying to impress the NFL. Like, look, we have our number one college game. Like you had said earlier, the secondary Monday night game for years was, you know, Golic and Greenberg and Chris Berman with a cast of character. Rich Ryan did it one year. I think this is ESPN trying to say to the NFL, because now they have a Super Bowl and they have this big contract. And, you know, they brought in Buck and Aikman. Like, we're serious, we're going to take our, regardless of what you think about Fowler, he's their lead college guy. So, I feel like they're like, oh, look at us, we're putting the lead when, you know, that. Yeah, I think they screwed up and I think they know they screwed up. I think that they ended up shifting who was in charge of the NFL. It was Stephanie Drewley. And they moved her off the NFL after, you know, I think that didn't help her cause in terms of staying on the NFL. I think they were satisfied with Levy. He was a good guy, which they value. After they brought in Joe Buck, he was very gracious. You know, Levy's a very good hockey guy, especially studio host. I thought he could have, you know, could have been the pregame show on Monday Night Football. He's in, again, not their, in my opinion, they had other people who are better play -by -players for football, but it was good. Like, so, yeah, I don't think it was to impress the NFL. They got Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They got the Mannings. I mean, they spend, they're spending 50, 60 million dollars a year on their booths. Like, I don't think the second team booth is gonna, you know. If anything, I think it was, there was a thought before Buck and Aikman that Fallon and Herb Street might get the NFL. Might get Monday Night Football. Might get the potential Super Bowl. And then this is kind of a carrot since they didn't get it. But I'd argue, and I even talked to Chris Fowler about this. So, I don't know if this is the case. I just don't know if, I mean, Chris Fowler does the national championship. He does the biggest college game every week for Disney. I can't, like, I get it. Maybe he wanted to do NFL. But is this really gonna satisfy him because you're doing a second game, which generally aren't that great? I don't, I don't see that long -term, personally. And I think also, strategically, if I'm ESPN, I'm putting a young play -by -player. Now, Joe Buck, we both think it's great. Like, he and Ian Eagle are the best two play -by -players going right now. And, um, but, Joe Buck's contract's up in a couple of years. If I'm ESPN, and I, you know, I think they'll probably re -sign Joe Buck, and they should. That said, he makes a lot of money. And, you know, I would be saying, who can I develop? What young guy can I develop? So when I go into that negotiation, I really have somebody who's on the rise. And I can say, hey, look, you don't want this, you know, the 15 million a year? Then we'll go here, you know? But if you start demanding, I'm not saying this is going to happen, but, demanding even more and more money, I'd want an option. I don't think they've created an option. They've actually put somebody in that spot who they've already said they'd rather spend 15 million dollars on Joe Buck than have Chris Fowler as the lead play -by -player. So, I just think negotiation -wise, and strategically, in terms of saving money, it wasn't a great decision. Yeah. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth, either. They had Fowler, Greasy, and Riddick. Excuse me, excuse me. Levy, Riddick, Greasy. Now it's Fowler or Lofsky, Riddick. To me, that, and, Fowler's used to a two -person booth with Herb Street. They have Buck and Aikman, which is a two -person booth. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth. It's just, for football, it just, I don't get it, but, that's just my - It complicates, it over -complicates it. Yeah. And like you said, chemistry. I think it's much harder to develop a chemistry with three. I mean, you know, the local Mets situation is different with Gary Cohn, Ron Darl - Is it in baseball, is it football? What three men, can you name - I mean, I guess back in the old Monday Night Football days, there were three men booths that had - Yeah, Collinsworth and Aikman with Buck that one year. Yeah, one year it lasted, you know. So, I don't know. But, there's no more staggered double -headers. The next one is week 14, and both games will start at 8 -15. I think that's the one that's going to piss a lot of people off. But, that's a long way down the road. You got the two TVs. Yeah. I asked you if ESPN, how they feel about Monday Night Football. Anything you've heard about how they feel about their new partnership with Pat McAfee. I mean, it's early, but they're bullish on it. I mean, they've kind of handed the keys to the network to McAfee. I mean, you can't - it's kind of like Stephen A. now. You can't really turn on ESPN almost every day except basically Sunday without seeing Pat. And so, you know, I think initially the ratings weren't that good. I think they got a little better in terms of the TV ratings. I think that kind of makes some sense because if you think about it, he was a YouTube show. Yeah, he's got to play for TV. Yeah, and he's still a YouTube show. Well, it is a play for TV because they think that they had Max in there before. They think that the ratings will be high enough that they'll be able to charge more for the ad rates. I guarantee you the money they'll make off of McAfee on social media and YouTube will be 8 billion times more than the money they made off Max Kellerman on social media. Oh, 100%. No, you're right. No, you're right. There's no doubt about that. And look, they want to get, I will say this, like, does it work? I think a lot of times when companies make big moves, you know, big time moves, a lot of times they make those moves when the person's kind of towards the end, you know, they got McAfee on the rise. Like, you know, we, you know, you and I have been aware of McAfee for years now, but he's really like, you know, here, I don't think he's at the plateau, you know, where most people go up and then they plateau and then they go down. He's at, he's still, I think, going up and then maybe the plateau is on the horizon and you can plateau for 20, 25 years if you have the right attitude and personality and just have the right act. So that's where I think that makes a lot of sense as a bet because it's not, I'll hit one close to home, Rick Riley leaving ESPN. I mean, leaving SI for ESPN where, you know, Rick Riley is one of the great columnist ever, but at that point, you know, whatever, maybe it was the internet, I don't know exactly. It just didn't really work as well at ESPN as it did at SI. And so I just think they've done that and that's kind of, you know, teams do that in sports and I think sometimes networks do that. And so I feel like signing McAfee in his mid -30s is kind of like signing a baseball free agent who's in his mid -20s and I think that's what you want to do as opposed to getting a, signing a 35 -year -old and, you know, thinking they can still play, you know, like, I don't know, like a Josh Donaldson, maybe trading for someone like that, Jimmy. You see what I did there? I don't need reminders of the horrific Yankee season. I just did that on purpose. I don't need that. My head was going, who am I going to say? All right, yeah, Josh Donaldson, but it was a treat. Just a, yeah, you want me to say Brian Cashman should be fired. It's amazing too, they replay that. I didn't know this was going to be the situation going into it, but they replay the show as soon as it's over, I think, on ESPN 2 and then they replay it at night on maybe ESPN News or one of their, what you said about if you're going to put on one of the ESPNs at any point in the day, you're going to see Pat McAfee. Yeah. So that's good for him. Like I, you know, people feel like - But I also think, ESPN has to be, they have Aaron Rodgers on their air every week. It's a news making thing that's on their air every week. They've got Nick, he's got Nick Saban on his show every week. Yeah. That's a news making thing every week. I would think ESPN has to be, forget the numbers because the numbers, I think, will be there. It's still a new thing. You have, the ESPN audience is older, the McAfee audience is younger, it might take some, but I would think ESPN just on the brand and the cachet of that show has to be thrilled. I think so. I mean, but if you talk, like I have, again, I'll probably make some calls here in the near future, but so I haven't talked specifically with anybody about that. But generally speaking, when these things first start, everyone loves it. So then we'll see. Again, I'm not saying, I could see it either way. Like, you know, McAfee has not really stayed at any of these, throughout any of these contracts he's had. So that's something to watch. Maybe this one he does, but that hasn't been the case previously. So that is something. I think the fact that he's on game day has to help the relationship there a little bit with ESPN. Here's the thing about McAfee. If you're managing him, in my opinion, and it's like Casey Jones, the former coach of the Celtics, was known for just throwing out the ball and telling McHale, Parrish, and Bird to go play, Dennis Johnson. At least that's how I remember as a kid. That was his reputation. And I think McAfee is sort of like that. Just give him the ball, let him do his thing. He's not looking to, you know, for some strategy. Let's, you know, triangle offense. He's not looking for that. He's looking for, let me do my thing. I know what I'm doing. And the thing about McAfee is he's very smart. Like, I know he plays this, like, he's not smart thing. It works very hard. He works hard and he's very smart. He's very savvy. He acts as if, like, you know, maybe he's, you know, just a dumb jock. But he understands the media business very well. We need, we need to discuss the Kelsey Taylor Swift thing because I actually think it's a legitimate media story. If Fox is going to get these increase in their demographics of the female audience, the young people, the NFL has gone all in on this thing. I mean, they changed their Twitter header to, like, a Taylor Swift thing. They're putting out Travis Kelsey Swiftiest plays on their social media. He's gained, I guess, a ton of followers, the jersey sale. Let me start with this. How did you think Fox handled it on Sunday when she was in the stadium? Do you think they overdid it? Do you think the fact that they had an unwatchable game takes them off the hook? What was your take on the Chiefs -Bears on Sunday when she was there? I think the second part, and I wouldn't take them off the hook, but I think the second part, you have an unwatchable game that you had to switch most of the country out of because it was so non -competitive, that you have Taylor Swift there, it's a big deal. And, you know, there's a lot of Taylor Swift fans who are football fans, a lot of non -Taylor Swift fans who weren't watching that game, but it was a talking point, right? Like, I saw Taylor Swift in the concert this summer, but that was kind of - Look at you! Yeah, how do you like that? Look at you! You couldn't even get tickets. Big shot. Where'd you get tickets? My daughter's friend just won the lottery. No shenanigans. Oh, really? Tickets were $235 each, which is still a lot of money, but not, like, $1 ,000. And it was just kind of happenstance, how I ended up going. I was going to say, if your daughter's friend got tickets, how did you end up at the era's tour? I mean - Were you, like - It's just a long drive to get to the metal lands, didn't want them driving back. They're older, they can drive, but at, you know, one o 'clock in the morning from Taylor Swift, so - But you were in MetLife and watched the show. Yes. Friendship bracelets? Well, you want to know something funny? This is a good one. So, my daughter's friend said to me, do you want a - do you want a jewel? And I'm like, no, no, no, I'm okay. Thinking she's saying a jewel, like a jewel, smoke. But she was saying, like, to, like, get bedazzled, a little jewel, which I would have taken. So later, I was like, I told my daughter, I said, but your friend, she said she asked me if I wanted a jewel. She's like, no, no, she didn't say you wanted a jewel. She said, do you want a - a jewel to put some ju - you know. Right. I didn't have any bracelets, but I was into - I liked Taylor Swift. I wouldn't go again. I kind of felt bad being there, because there's people who give their left arm to be there. But it was - look, she is an unbelievable performer. I mean, it was - you could - first of all, I liked some of her songs. Secondly, the level of performance. It was just, you know, it was an A+. I mean, that - that - and that is something, even if you didn't like her music, you can appreciate it. And also, I appreciate it if I had to go to the bathroom. Easy pass right in there. No one. Right. No one's leaving their seat except for people like you who aren't in it. Yeah, and especially, yeah, and more skewed women.

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.
A highlight from Republican Debates, Election Predictions, and Media Criticism
"At some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick along with my partner, Mike Speraza. We are always excited to be here, Mike. Um, we are here after the second Bill's win. Yeah. Yeah. We will, we'll keep it at that. Every time we talk very little, things go well. So let's, let's keep it at a win and big game Sunday. Miami. What should be right. A massively popular game. I mean, when they put up 70 against Denver and we, we basically, did we shut out the three points? Three, three. Okay. We held, held Washington, the Washington commanders to only three. That should be a really, really dynamite game. So. Had to change their name due to political correctness. I know, I know. And we had some conversation about that. The people I was watching the game with were reflecting on, I guess the good old days when the, the nicknames of teams just didn't seem to matter as much, but it matters now. Now they want to take down statues. You're an Iroquois guy. They're taking that name away. The chiefs because apparently saying chiefs is very, uh, politically incorrect. I mean, a leader. You can't be called the leaders anymore. Maybe it'll be the Iroquois comrades because everyone's got to just hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Yeah. And, and you know, nobody gets a gender anymore. Nobody can dominate one or the other. Even if it's a sport, there really might not even ever be winners or losers. They might not even keep score anymore in sports. Like it's just going to be for the experience of it trophy for the trophy for the trophy. Line them all up. They're all going to look exactly the same. There'll be gender neutral trophies. When will we have a they, them team name? Like the, the Washington they, thems, like when, when, I mean, I know that sounds outrageous, but that's where we're headed. Yeah, it's true. It's going to be comrades. Friends. Yeah. The friends, the Iroquois friends, the Iroquois comrades. It literally is heading that way though. Something where you go, what is, what is this sport? Like we don't even know based on the name, what the sport is. We don't even, yeah. You won't know. Like usually you could derive some more information from things like that. Oh, no, no, not anymore. No, you're going to have to dig real deep. You're going to have to show up at these events and, uh, you know, maybe wear a nice hoodie and a pair of shorts at the events. Yeah, I agree with you. And, uh, you know, maybe right after you went through the Senate chambers to vote on something, you can head and do a game with your hoodie and shorts on. Anyway, the next one, the last thing I'll say is the next one will be the Patriots. They'll be getting their name taken because that represents Donald Trump and his movement. We got to take away the name Patriot, right? That'll be the next one. There you go. You know, I just, I can't with these people anymore. It's really getting to be absurd. Yep. Totally. So, uh, Mike, let's start with this one. A second Republican debate coming this Wednesday night, September 27th, and Dana Perino, who I've always enjoyed listening to. Um, she will be joining Stuart Varney and Ilia Calderon at the Ronald Reagan library. presidential Suitable place. I love it. Yeah. And, uh, I, we were just chatting a bit before the podcast, so let's just line this up. All right. I don't know the order, but we're going to have Pence, Christie, DeSantis, Rama, Swami, uh, Doug Burgum made it Dougie Dougie. Um, who is that? Who else? I'm I've got five Nikki Haley. Thank you. And then, uh, there should be one more. Um, I did pens from, let's write this down. One more time for everybody. Pence, Rama, Swami, right? DeSantis. How do I not remember? Tim Scott, Tim Scott. Thank you. So, so seven this time, um, not Asa Hutchinson, I think you said he, he didn't make it. Didn't qualify. So, um, of course the big elephant in the room is that Donald Trump again will not be there. Just tell me your thoughts, I guess, on this next upcoming debate. Are we going to hear anything different? Is there any going to be anything that really makes people go, Whoa, this guy's really racing to the front or female. Um, if it's Nikki Haley, anyone going to race to the front after this one? I really, I mean, I think we're kind of wasting our time here and I'm not saying it as a, as a Trump voter. I'm just saying it realistically. Right. I mean, at this point, the lead is 40 to 50 points. Nobody makes up that ground than a debate, right? Like Nikki Haley had a great debate last time. She's still polling single digits. Right. I don't agree with Nikki Haley stance on a lot of things, but she, she fared well in that debate and she really didn't grow or fall behind anymore. Right. So I think that's the tough part. When we look at these debates, the Donald Trump in the 2015, 2016 campaign years, that is your like unicorn, right? Where, where you just go up there and go bananas. And then you end up, you know, taking over the field. The difference was there was no Donald Trump in that election, right? Like you had a Jeb Bush, but he wasn't the guaranteed slam dunk candidate right now. You have Donald Trump, Mike, and he is the guaranteed slammed on Canada. The only one that we thought maybe had a chance was Ron DeSantis and he has crumbled mightily, whether you like him or hate him. It's just the facts. He's, he's in trouble. Right. I mean, so what, what are we accomplishing with these debates other than kind of a, I guess I'll say wasting our time. Yeah. And I, I just, I just think it's worth breaking this down a little bit. Like what is it that people like you and I think that these others are just inferior to a guy like a Donald Trump? Like, and I'll tell you my opinion first. Mine is I just don't think they'll win. And I just feel like more and more people need to, you got to vote and expect that the conservative Republican candidate in this case wins. And I don't think any of these other people could, could actually win. I don't think they have enough, you know, experience. They don't have the fortitude that a Donald Trump has. Well, I think that that to me is, is there's two reasons why I'm voting for Donald Trump, right? Number one was I thought he had a very good four year term other than the COVID 19 issue. And I, I'm telling you right now, I say this to people all the time. If it was Ron DeSantis, if it was Donald Trump, if it was Hillary Clinton, that, that, that whole debacle was, was a disaster and there was no way you were going to look good in that debacle. I'm just telling you. Yeah. Number one, but that was a Trump fault that I have. And if I ever talked to him, I would tell him that that I do not agree with what he did with COVID. It's easy for me to say that now, but, but at the end of the day, he had a great four year term other than that, in my personal opinion. Number two is every time they've tried to knock him down at the knees, Mike, that has made me want him back more, right? The, the every time they indict him, I want him back more, right? Every time they try and silence him with gag orders, I want him back more. This is how I think a lot of conservatives are feeling. And at this point, it's kind of like, okay, is Rhonda, here's what my other point, I don't mean to keep going on, but at the end of the day is whether it's Ron, DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, or Donald Trump, I'm going to use those three for a second. They will be treated the exact same way by the media, by the Democrat party. It doesn't matter who that candidate is. It doesn't matter. Right. People always say like, Oh, but, but Trump's hated. If DeSantis is a candidate, he's already taken crap from the leftist media, right? Like if he's the candidate, he's going to, it's going to be open up another can of worms. I don't think it matters. The reason why we got to go with Donald Trump is he's been there. He's been able to handle it. We know that whether you like him or not, he's handled the media and he's handled the Democrats well. And we need that experience. This is the election of our lifetime. And I will say that now, this is the election of our lifetime. We need to win. Dana Perino says, I believe the economy will feature prominently because we know that that is the biggest concern and preoccupation that is worrying Americans. And she says in many ways, in my opinion, the economy is the thread that runs through all of these other possible topics. For example, if you're concerned about crime, one of the issues is what kind of resources do you have and are you willing to use in order to help deal with that? I think she's spot on. I think when it comes to the economy, the economy sort of is the fuel and whether you then have a notion to, you know, actually shut down the border, improve childcare, improve education, then the, the economy obviously is the main thread that actually everything else seems to branch off of. If you have a lot of people working, for instance, you're going to have a thriving economy because supply and demand is going to balance out. You're going to have lots of products and services to offer and a lot of people can afford these things. Right. So, uh, I, I agree with her. Plus it is Fox business that's hosting the event. So might lean a little bit more toward economics. Yeah, I think it should. I agree with you. I mean, at some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas at some point, you know, and I say, I've said this to you, Mike before, going to get groceries now at times, like they ring all the stuff up and I'm like, Holy crap. I bought, I have a cat. I bought five cans of cat food. They're, they're the size of like a lacrosse ball, not even. And it's like $5 for five cans. I'm like this, this thing costs more than my kids at this point. This cat's going to be very thin. It's going to be out of crash diet. I mean, but seriously, how do people, Mike, that don't make money? And I say this in a sad way, like how do people that don't make money survive? Even going, you go to a local fast food restaurant for two people. My wife and I it's 30 bucks. I'm like, what the hell happened out here? I told that is what's going on. And that's scary. Yeah. When they have to make those kinds of hard choices. Right. Uh, all right. So, uh, let's move on. So speaking of Trump, we're talking about these other seven candidates that will be there Wednesday, this Wednesday night, nine to 11 PM in the second Republican debate, Donald Trump will not be there, but this came out like in a Washington post poll. Trump is now up 10%, uh, over a potential run against Biden, 10 % double digit. Now if you just pin Trump against Biden again, first your thoughts, and then we'll go a little deeper into this. Well, I'm not surprised. Um, I think, I think Americans are getting sick and tired of it. I think Americans are worried about our futures. I think the migrant crisis is hurting the Democrat party because you have liberal places like New York city that are waking up saying, Oh my God, we can't do this anymore. And there's like 10 ,000 migrants in New York city, not 10 million. Right. So like, like it's starting to click, I think with certain people, number one, number two, Mike, I think it's hard to hide Joe Biden's cognitive decline, right? The left can say whatever they want in the media. You just can't, when you fall over on things, when you do talk like that, I mean, they, it's a problem. It's a real problem and it's visible. Um, do I trust these polls? Yes and no. I think, if I think America is as smart as I think they would, the polls should be probably higher, like 30 % lead for Trump. Um, but I think the numbers that keep growing in Trump's favor, the margin of error is not that big, right? Michael, like you look at the Republican primary polls, the margin of error is not 40%, right? He's up 40%. So even if they're off by 20%, he's still up 20%. The same thing's starting to happen in these head to head polls with Biden. It started, you know, Trump down, then it was Trump even, then it was Trump three, five, now it's 10. I mean, that's a lot. Yeah. And so I want to read a little bit here. So the post ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage in the election cycle. This is, by the way, the Washington Post little write -up, uh, after the poll was done. Um, so this is, this is actually humorous. Although the sizable margin of Trump's lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest to virtual dead heat, the difference between this poll and others as well as the unusual makeup of Trump's and Biden's coalitions in the survey. So Mike, the more words, the muddier this all gets, right? It sounds like excuses coming up, right? It sounds like Kamala Harris. It really is. It's like, yeah, total word salad. Um, I just said suggested is probably an outlier, right? So, so this, this I thought was interesting. Um, Byron Byron York of the Washington examiner said the post dumped on headline news in quotes from its own poll. So basically they do a poll. They say that their poll is likely an outlier and, and he, he goes on to then say Washington Post sub heads suggests its own poll may be an outlier. That may be true, but they put no such disclaimer in headline three years ago when they published a poll of Wisconsin, right before election day in 2020, showing Biden up 17 points on Trump, 10 points more than the average of other polls at the time. That was real clear politics, president Tom Bevin. So, so funny to me, so interesting, right? Even when they try to do something where they want to take part in the polling process and inform all of us as Americans, Ooh, that's not really where we wanted to see that. That's likely an outlier folks. Yeah. Oh, Donald Trump's winning. Shit. That doesn't count. Okay. What are we going to do? Next one. Okay. These were registered voters. What are we going to do? This is 10 points. Holy shit. What are we going to say? Let's just say it's an outlier. Oh damn. That was a fake poll. Oh, those stupid polls. Yeah. I mean, and it might, I'll say this before we get onto another topic on what's, what's, you're starting to see it all come together. It's like, it's like when they see, you know, hurricanes forming in the ocean, right? We're starting to see it now. The polls are shifting to Trump. Now we have Hillary Clinton coming out saying things like, Oh yeah, who's to say Putin won't medal in the election in 2024 again, right? You have others saying like, Ooh, we got to get Trump off the ballot or people saying, let's indict Trump again for this or that let's put gag orders on him. It's all coming together. Now the new thing too, Mike is, Hmm, let's indict the Bidens and let's see if we can get, we can get a Joe Biden off the ticket. We've used him, we've abused him. Now we're getting them out of here. It's all, it's that wave in the ocean. It's that hurricane forming in the ocean. That's what's happening. And I believe that because why, why would Hillary Clinton come out and say, if you're so confident right in the 2024 election, if you're so confident and Trump's an idiot, he's never going to make it again and get rid of them. Why are you now saying, Hmm, maybe Putin will medal in the elections again. Why would you say that? Right. Right. And by the way, this is the same guy that's richer than ever because his country has been able to sell oil at a high rate since Biden's been in office. This is the same country that has had its way with the Ukraine walking in there and taking over land since Biden's been in there. Why would, why would Putin medal in the election to get in and probably in his mind, the nut job of Donald Trump back in office, it may drop a nuke on him. Why would he want Trump back in office? Ask yourself that question. Don't have to, if you have any sense at all, then you don't even have to ask that. Um, so anyway, let's see what the next number of polls start to reveal. Let's see if, let's see if polls stop coming out, Mike, right? Because once you have one that's got Trump winning by double digit, maybe they just start to say, polls are stupid. Polls are for racists. You're homophobic. If you read polls, I mean, we'll see. Or they come out with some poll from the middle of nowhere. That's like Biden up 35 points on Donald Trump. Right, right. This was from registered voters in the white house. Yes. We interviewed seven people and it was six to one, six to one. And the other one we fired, we don't even know who that was. Yeah. So, so let's go to this now. Every once in a while, Mike, I have to do this CNN, right? I go to the cnn .com site. I just got to see what they're finding note newsworthy, noteworthy, whatever you want to say. And honestly, and I've often reported this, I'm often in disbelief at what they aren't reporting. In this example though, I was like, Oh, a few stories down. Here's a story, Mike, why more women are choosing not to have kids. So right away I'm thinking, Oh my gosh, these are the most unlikable people, the most anti traditional family structure people ever. They probably don't want to have a relationship at all. They don't want to ever have true, you know, intimacy with anybody cause they just can't do it. They're just nasty. They're mostly on, you know, just awful. These lots, so many of these people. So I go on to read a little bit of this and you know, this is, this is someone named Diana Volek who, who never, who was never someone who dreamed of becoming a mother, right? And these are just some of the reasons given. They don't want the responsibility of being a parent. They fear a lack of support. They like their life as it is. They're still judged for being child free. So so even when they don't choose to have children, right? So I'm like looking at this and then suddenly I go, wait a second. This was published at midnight, uh, basically Sunday or Monday, you know, September 25th. That's that's now as we record editor's note, this story was originally published in August, 2021. Some details such as the ages of those interviewed remain the same as they were when the story first published. So you're telling me right away, I thought, is the Hollywood writers strike? Is it bleeding into CNN now? Cause there aren't enough stories. There aren't enough people to write like modern stories. There's not enough news. They had to pull a story from two years ago to talk about why many women are deciding not to have kids. Like how pathetic is that? How pathetic. This new trend too, of like, it's cool to just say, screw it. I don't want to have a family is the weirdest thing ever. And then we wonder why these people are miserable, right? I mean, again, is parenting easy? I'm a new parent. Mike, you know that you, you parented two girls for, you know, they're what? 25, 22, right? So you've had, you've had 25 years of parenting experience. I've had, you know, almost a year. It's the most enjoyable thing ever. Right? I mean you're finally, it's good not to be selfish. It's good to take care of somebody else and love somebody else. Right. And I'm not saying you don't love your spouse, but your spouse is an adult relationship. You have to have a relationship with a baby, which turns into a toddler, which turns into an adolescent, a young adult like that. There's nothing more special than that. You should want that. Instead it's like, Oh, kids are stupid. I'm going to be so rich. Really weigh me down. Yeah, yeah, sure. Okay. They're going to weigh me down. I want my independence. I don't want to be responsible to another human being. I've got myself to worry about and treat and, and you know, I don't know, a door like I get like, that's fine. I want to see the next story though be why many women are deciding that having a child is rewarding. It can become a very loving, you know, yes, you have to be responsible. Like it just was so gross to me like that. And two years ago, this isn't even news. This is like, Oh my gosh, we got to fill these headlines. What do we get out? Pull that one again. We don't like kids. We don't want anyone, you know, raising children, my God for, you know, I'll say this though, Mike and all seriousness too. Like, yes. Is, is it fun being a college degenerate and booze and all the time and having a blast? Sure it is. We all did it right. I mean, yes, of course it's a fun thing. Is it fun to not care if you can go to bed at 2am or 5am or 5pm? Sure. That's great. But at some point you have to mature as an adult, take your job seriously, take your family seriously and care about things like I always say this, Mike, and this is something I've brought up a million times. Think about being, you know, if you want it, like if you didn't want to have kids, I'm not saying people that can't have kids cause I feel for them. But if you, if you didn't want children, cause you didn't want the responsibility, what do you do in your sixties and seventies with no family? Like that breaks my heart, honestly. Right? Like I, what my relationship with my parents, my wife's with her parents, like it's, it's fun, right? It's, you're a family. You get to do things together and you get to enjoy each other. Who doesn't want that? I just don't get it. Well, there's a lot of people in Washington that actually have spouses and children and grandchildren. And clearly there is not a lot of love and support going on between all of them. Because some of these people, I mean, we know who we're talking about, the Mitch McConnell's, the Joe Biden's, they would not be in front of microphones if people actually cared about them. They would not let those loved ones go through what they go through on a daily basis, unless they have no connection, no personal connection at all. Um, all right. AOC. She's almost the last story of our day, but there's one more after this. So we got a bonus. We do a bonus story here, breaking news. So AOC wins the hypocrisy award mic for this, uh, at least this week, maybe the year on this one decade, this is hilarious. And, um, I'll just set this up for a second. So here she was on CBS's face the nation. And, um, she was discussing president Biden's plan to visit the Michigan auto workers on Tuesday. So host of CBS's face, the nation, Margaret Brennan points out a couple of interesting facts about AOC and her selection of vehicles. So let's go ahead and play that. Yup.
A highlight from Ron Hammond Interview - Crypto Regulation News! SEC Gary Gensler Hearing, FTX Trial, Crypto Bills, Coinbase, Stablecoin Regulation
"Last time he spoke in front of the House Finance Service Committee, he kept saying multiple times, we have not lost a court case on crypto at all. We have brought several actions. And again, remind you, they call settlements wins. And so in their case, they were. They had won every single court case. But now that talking point is really faded because, as you mentioned, the Ripple's case, the Grayscale case, there's also ones like the Coinbase suit going on right now.

With me today is Ron Hammond, who's director of government relations at the Blockchain Association. Ron, great to have you back on. Thanks for having me. Always a pleasure. Ron, it's going to be a busy week. It's already a busy week here in DC. Tomorrow is, of course, the hearing with chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. Tell us about that and what can we expect. Definitely. For those who may not know, Gary Gensler, the chair of the SEC, is going to be testifying in front of the House Financial Services Committee for the second time this year. That's a really big deal because, to remind you, last year, they barely saw him at all in that committee when the Democrats had control. But if the Republicans can control, they want to exercise oversight of the SEC as much as possible. And again, it's pretty typical, though, for the opposite party to try to put the screws on to the party that has the White House. But in this case, a lot has happened, both in crypto, but also just generally, that it's going to get a lot of flack for Gary Gensler, whether it be on private funds, ESG. And again, crypto will definitely come up a lot after talking to several folks on the House side. He recently testified, though, in front of Senate Banking two weeks ago, and we didn't get too much out of that candidly. We saw a couple of questions from Senator Hagerty from Tennessee on the issues of promethium, for example, and Bitcoin ETF. We also saw some questions from Senator Lummis on SAB 121, which is more crypto accounting standards, and how do you custody actual crypto for banks. So I think we're going to see a lot more hard -hitting points from the House, especially on the Republican side. But I'd also like to caveat, as well, that the shutdown approaching, a lot of Democrats are going to use their time to hit the Republicans. It's just standard politics here. The Republicans are the ones in the House that are really slowing things down, unfortunately, when it comes to funding the government. So Democrat, any for the most part, is going to utilize their five minutes to not really talk about Gary Gensler, but talk about the Republicans shutting down the government. Because again, that's a major, major thing here. As much as crypto is big for us, the macro of all of the shutdown has a lot of implications. So we won't see crypto come up too much, but after talking to a couple offices, it does seem like we're going to have some definitely hard -hitting questions, very similar to what we saw earlier this year in the House. Yeah, and to your point of, you know, things have certainly changed since the last time he appeared, because you had the Ripple lawsuit decision, you had the Grayscale decision, where Grayscale won that, Ripple won a big chunk of theirs as well. And the Prometheum details are more about what Prometheum is and what they're up to. So do you think there's going to be some hard -hitting questions around that, those cases and those things that happened? Definitely. So if you recall, last time he spoke in front of the House Financial Services Committee, he kept saying multiple times, we have not lost a court case on crypto at all. We have brought several actions. And again, remind you, they call settlements wins. And so in their case, they were. They had won every single court case. But now that talking point is really faded because, as you mentioned, the Ripple case, the Grayscale case, there's also ones like the Coinbase suit going on right now. That's got a lot more attention. Actually, it looks a lot better for Coinbase post those decisions. And so he can't rely back on the courts here or say that, hey, look, I'm winning in all these court cases. And actually, especially in the Grayscale case, he lost 3 -0. And two of those judges were Democrat appointees and they're based here in D .C. And so I think that having that set the tone of like, look, you are really overextending here and you're losing in the courts, not by a small margin, by unanimous margin sometimes. And it's just not crypto. You are pushing the balance elsewhere where other industries like ESG or like private equity are seeing these wins and saying, you know what? I think we're going to actually have a chance to win against the SC as well. So like the ETF situation where crypto really just goes out ahead and fights a lot of these fires for more traditional finance. And then those folks kind of benefit from crypto's push. I think we're seeing some of that happening now with the Grayscale case and Ripple case and Coinbase case empowering other industries who feel like they are also having overreach from the SEC saying, you know what? I think we have actually a case here when we can actually win the courts. So I think it's going to be a major theme of this hearing going forward. But also there's going to be several other questions to your point about Prometheum. That was a major issue for that committee, which had Erin Caplan in front of that committee just a couple of months ago. And they reiterate all the talking points, securities laws are clear. The SEC gave us a way to work forward and move things forward. But that argument really fell apart pretty quickly. And we're seeing that in this case, that the Prometheum line that there is a pathway forward registration, there is a way to comply, just doesn't hold water. And so I'm pretty sure we'll see some members of Congress tighten the screws a little bit there because it's been really more of a black box, the SEC, of how this process went. Caplan just kept saying that we actually kept working the SEC and they were clear, but that has yet to even show itself. So I think there'll be a major other theme for this hearing as well. Now you mentioned Coinbase and everyone's looking at that lawsuit. There was also news reported, I think you mentioned it, where Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong will be on the Hill. They've also launched an education campaign around crypto. Tell us about that. Yeah, Coinbase has been a godsend, candidly. Again, we used to have only about five or six lobbyists during the infrastructure fight. And again, we're going up against the banks who have over 150 plus lobbyists. We have going against other agencies or other groups that have way more funding. But Coinbase really has stepped up and said, look, the fights here in DC, we are committed to the United States and we're committed to resources here in the United States and DC to educate Congress, to educate regulators, and to showcase in DC why crypto is important for the future of the United States. And so they're having a huge Hill day tomorrow, actually. Again, it lines up not on purpose at all with Kerry Gensler testifying and of course also the shutdown too. But they're going to be having a whole set of presentations for Hill staff and members of Congress to learn from founders. It's not just Coinbase itself. They're also bringing in other founders from other companies and having a whole demo day, a Hill day, you can say, to educate various offices. And so I think it's really important to have. We're all seeing a lot of other folks from the industry come down. So it's going to be quite the crypto week here in DC. Of course, bad timing with the shutdown, but no one can really plan it like that. So we're really excited to see how that plays out, especially with all the heat recently more moving to AI in terms of interest, but also scrutiny. I think it's good to have more adults in the room and say, hey, look, crypto was the AI about one or two years ago. We're still here. We're fighting a lot of big battles. We need Congress's help to move the needle. But at the same time, let's show you why this is important and why this technology needs to be in America and not be based elsewhere. Because unfortunately, we're seeing a lot of folks migrate over to London, migrate over to the EU. And Coinbase is really taking a strategic stand saying, we're here to stay. We're here to comply with the rules, but we also need some action from Congress. So we'll see how that goes. Sure. Yeah, that's really great that they're doing that. And education advocacy are certainly key. And speaking of legislation and regulations, obviously, we had the market structure bill get marked up in the house. You also have the stable coin bill. What's the latest with those and the next steps? I know the shutdown is probably delaying a lot of things. What are the latest on those items? Yeah, so we were kind of expecting by October timeframe to have a vote on the stable coin bill and the market structure bill. There are other crypto bills as well that passed out of the house financial service committee, but those are the two main big ones. And so the plan was, hopefully, was after this whole shutdown drama that we would have a vote probably in October, but it's looking more like November now. And again, our message to folks is the closer we get to that 2024 election, we're almost a year out, all of a sudden, all bipartisan politics goes away and folks start retreating back to their bases. And it's my team versus your team. And that's when everything grinds to a halt in DC. We're already seeing that right now a little bit with the shutdown where folks are saying it's my team versus your team, but the Republicans are a lot more splintered on their teams. And so we want to make sure that we get these bills pushed out of the house on a good bipartisan basis and then showcase to the Senate why it's important to take up this legislation. Now, there are been some rumors going around recently. Again, Politico report on it, Punchbowl report on it recently, too, that Patrick Henry gave an interview saying, look, the Senate Bank Committee, my Senate counterpart, they're doing completely different things than we're doing in the house. We're focusing on crypto and capital formation and data privacy. They're more focused on marijuana banking, exec compensation, and banking regs. So we are in two different camps on two major different issues. But if we were able to make a trade of some sort, the priorities that Sherrod Brown, who's running for reelection in deep red Ohio, who's going to need all the help he can get, would at least his case to voters saying, look, I'm actually working on this committee that traditionally has not passed that many bills. Mind you, again, they haven't passed a bill, except for this year, for four years before that. And that's during his time as well as Republicans in the chair time. It's crazy. And so in order for this to move the needle, they have to have a trade. And I think that's what's really important to say. If this trade were to happen, a lot does have to happen. But this does provide a pathway potentially for crypto legislation to move forward to the president's desk. Again, a lot has to happen. A lot can mess this up. But this isn't one of the first few times we're seeing kind of a light at the end of the tunnel. And we're really excited by it now again. But we have to have a lot of education because the Senate has not really given too much thought to this issue besides a couple handful of really powerful champions. Yeah, boy, fingers crossed, toes crossed, everything, hoping they can get something through the House and then we can go through the Senate. Boy, I'm hoping something happens by early next year before the madness of the election cycle. Now, there's also the trial for Sam Beckman Fried and the whole FTX debacle. In addition, there's been new updates around Sam Beckman Fried's parents and how money was moved to his aunt and Stanford University and much more. What do you expect to happen in October with this trial? So the main issue that we're going to have here in D .C. is just the noise. A lot of people are going to be talking about the SPF trial. It does have a huge media attention, for better or for worse. And again, we've really at least made sure we tell folks in D .C., again, this is not a crypto problem. This is a complete scammer just using newer technology. But guess what? Same old playbook as we've seen with Madoff and others. But there is concern that there are, at least in the case of the House, for example, we're voting on these big bills. FTX came up as a reason to support the bill, as a reason also to oppose the bill. Some folks say, look, there's no coming of a customer funds. That's what FTX did. And this bill bans that. On the other end, they're saying, you know, well, this legitimizes the crypto market. So this could potentially make more FTXs come up down the road. And so we've seen FTX kind of being pulled in two different directions when it comes to supporting or opposing legislation. And so our concern is the 300 plus members of Congress who have not sat in a crypto hearing who may not even know what Bitcoin or Ethereum is, are they going to listen to the headlines and say, look, actually, SPF is all crypto, which we all know it's not the case. Or they're going to say, SPF did this fraud. That's why we need to pass legislation to make sure this doesn't happen again. And so we're trying to really thread that needle. Of course, you know, we still know everything is going to come out through the trial. There could be some regulatory implications. Again, the campaign donations is a major factor and a major reason why a lot of folks in Congress are a lot more put back by crypto and kind of staying away on the sidelines because they don't get burned again. But as we're seeing kind of recently with the indictment with Senator Menendez recently from New Jersey, some members of the Senate took money from his PAC. And so there's a lot of, you know, just it doesn't matter if you're in crypto, doesn't matter if you're a Singh Senator, there's a lot of issues when it comes to campaign financing as a whole. And a lot of folks are on their toes here. But I think, you know, we want to make sure that we showcase it. Folks, SPF kind of went abroad and tried to really railroad the industry here in D .C. by trying to screw DeFi with his legislation and trying to protect his fraud and scam. Let's make sure it doesn't happen again. Let's put some rules on the road because, yes, SEC is not providing that right now. They haven't for years. And so it's time for Congress to act. So we'll see how that makes the dynamics. I'm sure, again, there'll be a lot of D .C. ties and connections with that court case. So if there's anything damning, we'll soon find out. But our hope is that this actually encourages Congress to act rather than sit on the sidelines saying, no, we're good. Crypto is kind of all SPF, FTX. And what do you think about the dynamic of and I don't know if this is going to be discussed in the trial at all, but Sam Beckman Fried and FTX officials met with the SEC many times. These are confirmed things on the calendar. I believe Sam met with Gary Gensler, according to some calendar updates. Does that play a factor at all? Because obviously we don't know what was discussed and what was the agenda items. But would that bring any pressure on Gary Gensler? Like you met with this guy. Yeah. He said in the New York Times article back in December that he met with SPF, I think it was twice actually, SPF and Gensler personally. But again, also remind you, it's a big organization. SPF was in D .C., more than any CEO in any industry I've seen in my time in D .C. But at the same front, staff meet all the time too. I mean, it wasn't just SPF. He had a whole team of staff that helped out on this front, both at the CFTC, at the SEC and of course with Congress as well. And so Gensler said again explicitly that he met with SPF twice. But I think it'd be good to know, look, how many times does your staff interact? How long do those conversations go? What do they lead to? Because there were some rumors swirling around that FTX is going to get a pass of sorts. And again, those are rumors. We have not had confirmation of that. But the one thing about the court case is that it's going to bring all this to light. So if there's anyone that's saying anything half -truths here or they're trying to protect their character or protect their image, it could really bite them if they have been lying to the press or they've been getting half -truths here. And so if I were to chair Gensler, this likely will come up in tomorrow's hearing. The question is like, look, it's going to come out. The truth will come out. We just want to make sure you're shored up here because it's going to be really bad for you on top of all the other things that have been happening in the courts if you've been caught potentially lying here. And again, I don't see any reason why he would in this situation, but I think the focus should be also not just on SPF and Garrett Gensler, but where do the staffs and the senior level execs and regulators also meet from FTX and the SEC? Hmm. I'm very curious to get those details. Now, speaking of FTX, obviously with the relation with Binance, and I forgot to ask you this earlier, the judge recently said it blocked the SEC from conducting further discovery, if I'm not mistaken, with Binance US. Have you heard anything about that? Not as much, at least in the DC front, but at least when it comes to the Binance situation as a whole, there's still that looming DOJ investigation that a lot of folks in DC are waiting for that shoe to drop. Again, there's various rumors of why that DOJ lawsuit hasn't dropped. There have been confirmation reports of central sanction evasion violations, as well as money laundering violations by Binance and the parent company, not Binance US to my knowledge, but Binance. What is the relationship though between Binance US and Binance? Is that there much cohesion there or is there actually a pretty separate line between those two entities? So one thing's for sure though, a lot of folks in DC or in the early of 2023 are hearing a lot more from Binance. They were definitely hitting DC a lot more, trying to get their narrative out. And I think the mounting allegations are pretty damning. And we've seen a lot of folks who were in DC for Binance trying to deliver that message. They're not here anymore. It was a very short stint for them. So whether that be for the company having financial problems, whether it be more of the regulatory issues, that's unclear at the moment. I would lean more to the regulatory issues, but I think it's all going to come more to light as time goes on, but it's pretty bad. So we'll see exactly how Binance recovers from this, if at all. But at least here in DC, the folks that they had speaking, they largely aren't here anymore. Wow. And final item here, obviously you got the Gensler hearing tomorrow with the House Financial Services Committee. Is there any other major hearings for the remainder of the year that we should be aware of? Not at the moment, at least in terms of big ones. We are seeing some small hearings, rumors coming up right now for more of Senate banking. Again, if they do consider crypto legislation, they've only had one major crypto hearing so far this year, whereas the House has had over 13. But again, like I mentioned earlier, that's just two separate priorities for two separate chairs. But if this trade were to happen, I think I'd just keep an eye on Senate banking. They just had their first AI hearing last week. And as they kind of get more into the AI issues and tech issues in finance, that's going to eventually loop in crypto more and more. So I think we'll keep an eye on Senate banking. And then finally, if we are looking for those votes happening on the House floor for the stablecoin bill, as well as the market structure bill, I probably keep a little eye on the House as well. I guess I think lastly, I'll say now, too, is tax issues. We've been talking a lot about securities law, commodities law for quite some time. But tax issues are really percolating to the surface here. Senate Finance, which is Ron Wyden, who's a big champion for crypto, Democrat side, as well as Mike Crapo from Idaho, they actually put a request out to the industry and another stakeholder saying, look, what does taxation for crypto look like? Please help us. Who should be reporting 1099s? Who should be doing various filings and such? So that's just a request ended in early September. And so we potentially could see some action or at least some legislative hearings on what does crypto taxation look like. And I think it's a very important issue with the broker definition coming out from Treasury. There's a lot of comments going through that system right now. So we'll see where that lines up by keeping an eye on tax issues. That's going to be a major fight for quite some time. And I think it's going to be really important. It's a little nitty gritty, but it's very important for any business to operate in the United States. Yeah, absolutely. That's a big one. And I know there's been some other things happening. I think the FASB rule and with corporations being able to hold Bitcoin and things like that on their balance sheet, I believe there were some updates there. Don't have the full details, but there's certainly a need for further clarity and for individuals and institutions. Ron, always great information, man. Thank you so much. Happy to help. Thanks for having me.
A highlight from BREAKING: Chase Bank BANS Bitcoin Payments & Purchases | EP 832
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin It's going up forever, Ron Bitcoin You're against Bitcoin, you're against freedom Yo, welcome to Simba Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution for breaking news, culture, and medical warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state. Speaking of the separation of money and state, pretty crazy news coming out of the United Kingdom. It seems like Chase UK to block Bitcoin and altcoin payments citing fraud scams. Starting October 16th, the bank will decline customer attempts to make payments related to crypto assets. We also have the screenshot of the supposed email that was sent out. Now, you know, they cite fraud and they cite all these reasons, but remember what I told you guys yesterday about the iron law of central banker and politician projection? Maybe it applies to bankers, too, that they accuse us of what they are guilty of themselves. So Chase doesn't exactly have the cleanest track record in terms of the things that they've been involved with. But again, I think that this is a warning shot across the bow, just like when Apple forced Noster to remove ZAPs from the platform, it highlights the fact that a lot of people, the way that they get their Bitcoin is through payment platforms, brokers, right, that connect with the traditional financial system. And this is why Corey wrote that piece, The Race to Avoid the War. The way that we really avoid this is, the way that we really avoid this is by, the way that we really avoid this is by pushing mass adoption very quickly, because the more we push mass adoption, it becomes a forcing function, right? So if a politician is running on an anti -Bitcoin stance, then if the majority of the population or a big portion of the population are holding Bitcoin, obviously that politician is not going to run on that stance. In fact, there's politicians that are now running on a pro -Bitcoin anti -CBDC stance because of Bitcoin's popularity in the mainstream.

A highlight from 1410: Bitcoin Will Hit $10,000,000 Per Coin - Binance CEO CZ
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis. And also I'm going to be sharing with you a 48 ,700 Bitcoin price target, pre halving according to a top analyst. Also did you know it was exactly six years ago today, China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time and ever since the Bitcoin price action is up 600 % and the mining hash rate is back at all time highs. Also quitting Max Kaiser, Bukele has restored the human rights to 7 million Salvadorians that have been taken away by murderous runts, the British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story of the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele -nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice preach. Also in today's show, Mt. Gox repayments delayed yet again. Creditors are waiting on Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash and Yen payments until next year in 2024. We'll also be discussing, according to this latest report, Coinbase currently holds 5 % of the entire Bitcoin supply in existence. That's right. While Coinbase holds 25 billion in BTC, the exchange only owns around 200 million in Bitcoin and its wallets. We'll also be discussing the catalyst, which will catapult the Bitcoin price action. According to skybridge capitals, Anthony Scaramucci will also be discussing the latest with the Binance CEO CZ setting the record straight on $250 million loan claims. That's right. The US court had recently denied an inspection plea by the SEC. I'll be breaking down this latest FUD and speaking of CZ, the Binance CEO predicts the Bitcoin price will reach $10 million per coin. In fact, a couple of years back in an interview, he said, if all of the major institutions allocate 1 % Bitcoin, we're going to see 1000 X or more growth of the Bitcoin price. And if you run the math, 1000 times today's price action is 26 to $27 million per BTC. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo what's good crypto fam. This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at crypto news alerts .net. Again, that's crypto news alerts .net and welcome everyone just joining us. This is podcast episode number 1410. I'm your host JV and today is September 23rd, 2023. So welcome to another sat stacking Saturday. Let's kick it off with our market watch as we do here each and every day, seven days a week. We can see Bitcoin back in the green trading above 26 .6 and we also have ether back in the green trading at roughly $1 ,600. The market cap is sitting at 1 .06 trillion with roughly 17 billion in volume. In the past 24 hours, we've got Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and the ether dominance at 18 .2 % as Bitcoin continues outpacing Ethereum and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, we've got theta lead in the pack up 7 % trading just under 64 cents followed by rocket pool up 4 % trading at $21 .63, followed by chain link up 4 % trading at $7 .18 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, we have WeMix leading this pack up 15%. We have PLS up 8 .2 % and XRD up 11, I mean 7 .4 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 47, which is neutral. Yesterday was a 43 in fear, last week also a 43 and last month a 41 in fear. So there you have it. How many of you have been stacking M -Sats and taking advantage of the recent dip in dollar cost averaging? Let me know. And how many of you are anticipating Bitcoin price action to maybe dip a little further south before packing some new positions? Let me know how you feel with the current status. And also just quick reminder, we're almost at the end of September historically, September is the worst month out of the entire year for the Bitcoin price action, but it's always followed by up tober, which is historically one of the most bullish months for Bitcoin. So we only have another week until we get out of September. So we'll see how this is likely to play out. Let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Bitcoin failed to reclaim 27 ,000, though we came close. It stalled at 26 ,500 as of right now. Meanwhile, the altcoins are in no better shape with minor losses coming from most of the larger cap ones. With Chainlink, the only one with a notable price increase. So last week was expectedly less volatile, aside from the brief spike on Saturday that pushed Bitcoin then to the multi -day peak of 26 ,400. But after failing to continue upwards, Bitcoin retraced at 26 ,000 and spent the rest of the weekend there. Then Monday didn't start all that positively either, but finished the way. Bitcoin went on the offensive and soared above 27 ,000 for the first time in weeks, but then shortly dumped after. But the bulls kept the pressure on and pushed Bitcoin to a new 20 -day peak at 27 ,500 on Tuesday. The next few days were rather calm with Bitcoin maintaining 27 G's, even after the US Fed's decision to stop raising the interest rates. Yet Bitcoin's momentum disappeared by Friday as it fell to 26 ,400. It even tried to bounce off the end of the day, but failed and currently stands at 26 ,500. Its market cap is south of 520 billion, while its dominance over the alts still just inches shy of 49%. So there you have it. And as we mentioned a little earlier, the altcoins, a lot of them are also in the red with the exception of Chainlink, which seems to be outpacing the rest of the major alts. Now for a prediction from Titan of Crypto, here's what he shared on X. Bitcoin 48 ,700 before the halving rocket ship to the moon. You might want to bookmark this one. Fam, never in history the halving occurred without Bitcoin reaching the 78 .6 % Fibonacci retracement level. So first off, first cycle price reached this four months before the halving, and the second cycle it was two months before, and then on the third cycle it was 12 months before. The next halving is now roughly six months away. Bitcoin might reach the 78 .6 % Fibonacci level within this period as it currently lies at 48 ,700, but the million dollar question remains, will this time be different? So as we enter this fourth halving, let me know where you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to hit before we have liftoff. I mean, obviously that would be a bullish scenario setting us up for a perfect price discovery in 2024 post halving. So I cannot wait. I hope the analyst is right. And if you didn't know, it was exactly six years ago. China tried and failed to ban Bitcoin for the second time because guess what? You can't ban Bitcoin. You can try. Good luck with that. And ever since the price action on the King Crypto is up 600 % and the mining hash rate continues to hit all time highs. And as you know, hash rate is a good indicator for the strength of the network, meaning the market cap is just north of only $500 billion. And as Max points out here, referring to Bukele, he has restored the human rights of 7 million Salvadorans that have been taken away by murderous runts. The British and American state, a 93 % approval rating tells the story, the most popular leader in the world. And now Bukele Nomics is being copied around the world as a blueprint for freedom and justice. Massive shout out to Najib Bukele and the people of El Salvador. Which country do you feel is likely to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender next? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments below. I feel it's going to be another Latin American country. I'd say a great candidate for that is Argentina, which has hundreds of millions of people. We have Javier Malay, the pro presidential candidate. There is a 70 % chance plus that he is elected as the president. And we already know the likelihood he could make Bitcoin a legal tender, especially being orange -pilled by Max Keiser, who is the senior Bitcoin advisor for President Bukele. As Max has already announced, he can't wait to touch down in Buenos Aires to orange pill Javier Malay. Then we also have Mexico. We have people like Ricardo Salinas, the third richest man in Mexico, very pro Bitcoin, claiming Bitcoin has been his best investment ever because, again, Max orange -pilled him back in 2014. Then we have Brazil and so many other countries that make Bitcoin a potential to become legal tender. And we all know that's going to be a game changer. And that's just another catalyst on top of the Bitcoin halving scheduled in six months in 2024, plus the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. So can you say fireworks lays ahead? Let's go. Now let's discuss the latest more bullish news, meaning Mt. Gox is going to be delaying these payments, which means no crypto is going to be dumped onto the open market anytime soon, which again is good for the hodlers. Check it out. Now we got Nobuaki, the Mt. Gox trustee in charge of the funds owed to the exchange creditors, updated the public on September 21st, two days ago, according to the trustee, because of the lengthy discussions with specific payment providers, he could not make the October 31st deadline. That was the initial deadline, fam. And because of this reason, the repayments will start next year. And so they say, quitting him here. Therefore, with the permission of the Tokyo district court, the rehabilitation trustee changed the deadline of the base repayment, the early lump sum repayment and the intermediate repayment from October 31st, 2023 Japan time to October 31st, 2024 Japan time, respectively. By the letter of the Kobashi details, the Mt. Gox creditors waited nine years for payments. Good Lord. Currently, they're owed one hundred and forty one thousand six hundred and eighty six BTC plus one hundred and forty two thousand eight hundred and forty six Bitcoin cash and sixty nine is that billion yen. Good Lord. I'd love to know what that equates to in dollars anyways, though the delay has been extended. The creditors who have completed their claims might receive the payment by year's end, quoting them again. Rehabilitation creditors who have provided the necessary info to the rehabilitation trustee will see the payments made in a sequence as early as the end of this year, according to the letter. However, this schedule could change. Kobashi also said that due to the high volume of inquiries regarding the process, the rehabilitation team might not respond promptly. Well, that doesn't sound so promising, but I guess it's a good sign that most of this cash is not going to be dumped off any time soon, as there's a lot of FUD that's always circulating. The Mt. Gox, you know, sell off is going to crash the entire market. I think that is very unlikely and is nothing more than FUD. And again, we're gearing up for the most bullish sentiment in the four year cyclical cycle amongst us in twenty twenty four. So versus being in fear, I would be very optimistic about what's to come for the king crypto and the crypto market as a whole. But what are your thoughts, fam? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss the largest crypto exchange in the United States. Clearly, it is Coinbase. The CEO is Brian Armstrong. But did you know, according to this latest report, they currently control and own over five percent of the Bitcoin in circulation. That's pretty hefty. And let's break this one down. And how many of you have used the Coinbase crypto exchange before? Let me know in the comments below. Here we go. Blockchain intelligence platform ARKAM recently identified the crypto exchange Coinbase holds almost one million Bitcoin in its wallets like, whoa, the coins are worth more than twenty five billion dollars at the current prices. Now, according to ARKAM, the exchanges holdings amount to almost five percent of all the existing Bitcoin. ARKAM said Coinbase holds a total of nine hundred forty seven thousand seven hundred and fifty five BTC. And at the moment, Bitcoin circulating supply is around nineteen million four hundred ninety three thousand five hundred thirty seven, according to coin info on CoinGecko. And as ARKAM shared here on X, ARKAM now identified twenty five billion of Bitcoin's Coinbase reserves with one million, approximately Bitcoin on chain. This makes Coinbase the largest Bitcoin entity in the world on ARKAM, with almost five percent of all the Bitcoin in existence, almost as much as Satoshi Nakamoto. Crazy, right? Furthermore, ARKAM noted that it has tagged and identified thirty six million Bitcoin deposits and holding addresses used by the exchange. And according to ARKAM, Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around ten thousand BTC. And based on the exchanges financial reports, the intelligence company believes that Coinbase has more Bitcoin than are yet labeled and could not be identified. And while Coinbase holds over twenty five billion worth of Bitcoin in its wallets, the exchange only owns around ten thousand of all the Bitcoin in which it holds, which is roughly two hundred million dollars, according to the recent data. Meanwhile, community members express varying reactions to the news about the amount of Bitcoin on the centralized exchange in which they hold. Some believe it's a sign to withdraw their Bitcoin from the exchanges, warning hodlers not to wait until the exchanges start to halt withdrawals. Others say that since there are legitimate concerns over cold wallets, there is no good way to store your assets. I'd like to chime in real quick. Obviously, if it's not your keys, it's not your coins. So while a custodian such as Coinbase can hold your crypto, you've got to also note that it's not yours. So if something were to happen, hypothetically, like we've seen with FTX and the collapse last year, then not your keys, not your coins, they don't belong to you at the end of the day. So you've got to start to weigh the risk reward with having a custodian such as Coinbase or a centralized exchange hold your coins versus taking the responsibility for yourself and learning how to self custody your own crypto and call storage such as with a Bitcoin cold wallet, such as a treasure. So I just wanted to point that out. There's no right or wrong way to hold your crypto. You've got to do what's in your best interest, of course. So, you know, I mean, just want to keep it real at the end of the day. So check it when it comes to Bitcoin ownership by companies, business intelligence for MicroStrategy still owns most Bitcoin. I believe it's over one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC, to be exact, worth over four billion dollars at the time of this recording, making them the largest publicly traded company to have Bitcoin on their balance sheet. Now, another major company that controls over six hundred thousand BTC is Grayscale in their GBTC product, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which they just recently had a lawsuit against the SEC with the plan to convert their trust into a spot Bitcoin ETF. So considering they already control the underlying asset in the sum of over six hundred thousand BTC makes them a pretty strong contender. Wouldn't you agree? Let me know your thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the Bitcoin price likely to catapult along with the altcoin to coin to SkyBridge Capital, Anthony Scaramucci. Let's break this down. Shout out to the Mooch, SkyBridge Capital founder Scaramucci is detailing how one catalyst could have a bullish impact on Bitcoin, as well as the alt. In an interview with the Wolf of Wall Street, Scott Melker Scaramucci says that a spot Bitcoin ETF could be approved in the first quarter of twenty twenty four, which seems to be a ninety five percent likelihood, according to top ETF analyst at Bloomberg, Eric Balchunes. So according to SkyBridge Capital founder, the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF and the Bitcoin halving, which is expected to occur in April of twenty twenty four, could combine to ignite a crypto bull market. No, it's not. It could combine. It will combine. Just saying. Quitting him here as Wall Street or products on Wall Street are sold, they are not bought. And so there is going to be tens of thousands, if not one hundred thousand plus people at these Wall Street firms selling these products to their traditional investors. So people that are in Bitcoin understand the finite supply of Bitcoin, right? We all know there's a finite limited supply, 21 million, and they understand the nature and the quality the Bitcoin has. This will push Bitcoin up. Of course, it will have a dramatically positive effect on the altcoin market because it will lead to more capital into digital properties so people can think whatever they want. They can think short term about the near term volatility of Bitcoin. But these macro positive factors are overwhelming. And according to Scaramucci, the potential approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF filed by giant asset managers such as BlackRock, who controls over 10 trillion in assets under management and Fidelity, that controls over four and a half trillion in assets under management, can see Bitcoin increasing its market cap by roughly 24 times from the current level. We'll send it. Let's go quoting the Mooch here. It is important that now the largest asset manager in the world who started out with some level of skepticism related to digital assets and Bitcoin is now willing to adopt Bitcoin. I mean, I guess they mean BlackRock is willing to adopt Bitcoin, but even more important than that, they're willing to explain to their clients. I think BlackRock now has 13 trillion dollars in assets under management. So for them, seven trillion for Fidelity. While these numbers are higher than I even imagine, while their clients need exposure to digital property like Bitcoin. And so we have a five hundred billion dollar plus market for Bitcoin. So you and I know gold is at 12 trillion ish, depending on where it's trading. But yes, 12 trillion. There is no reason why Bitcoin couldn't get gold. So there you have it. And to watch this video interview he did with Scott Melker entitled 37000 Bitcoin. Can it skyrocket 35 percent? Check the show notes below the video in the description. And I think we all could agree it's only a matter of time before Bitcoin returns to price discovery mode, virtually meaning entering new all time highs. My personal prediction is sometime in 2024, considering the two biggest catalysts, which we just covered, the Bitcoin halving and Bitcoin ETF approval, which we know is going to be a given, especially considering the SEC is not going to be able to push it back and push back that deadline any longer because, you know, they just they have been pushing it back now for 10 years while they continue to approve futures ETFs, which can allow them to spoof and manipulate the market, which is all by design. At the end of the day, there's not new under the sun and three things cannot be long hidden. The sun, the moon and the truth. But just saying. Anyways, fam, now let's discuss the ongoing fight against CZ, the finance CEO with this 250 million dollar loan. And then I'll be breaking down his 10 million dollar price prediction and in fact sharing a transcription of him claiming that Bitcoin can thousand X from the current price, which would ultimately mean not 10 million, but we're talking twenty six to twenty seven million dollars per coin. Let's break this down. So here we go. First, with the FUD, the Binance CEO, CZ Shangping Zhao had refuted a recent report alleging that he received the 250 million dollar loan from BAM Management, the company that serves as the holding entity for Binance US. Now, how many of you have used Binance US or Binance before as the exchange? Let me know, fam. The development comes amidst Binance's struggles with plunging trading volume as the world's largest crypto exchange faces mounting lawsuits and increased scrutiny, regulatory which seems to all be by design by the SEC and the regulators. Right. The report published by Decrypt September 19th drew its conclusions from court documents associated with the ongoing lawsuit involving Binance and the United States. SEC, according to the news agency's interpretation, the Binance US legal representatives asserted in the documents that BAM Management US Holdings had issued a quarter billion dollar convertible note to CZ back in December. CZ, however, challenged the accuracy of the report when he tweeted the following. The amount of wrong information is just they got the direction wrong. I loaned 250 million dollars to BAM a while back, not the other way around, and have not taken it back. The Binance CEO clarified that the loan arrangement was, in fact, the opposite of what was reported in the post. The exec explained that he had extended a 250 million dollar loan to BAM Management and asserted that he had not yet received the payment. So there's nothing new under the sun. Just more FUD, it seems like, fam. The legal battle has taken a toll on Binance US, which saw a flurry of employee departures. The US SEC alleged that Binance was not cooperating in the ongoing probe and even claimed that BAM refused to make essential witnesses available for deposition. Concerns were also raised on CEFFU, which happens to be a custody service offered by Binance's international arm, Binance Holdings Ltd. The SEC's filing claimed that the platform appeared to be in violation of a previous agreement designed to prevent the transfer of the assets abroad. And despite the scathing attacks by the financial regulator, Binance scored a small win this week. The SEC's motion to approve an inspection into Binance US was denied by the USDC District Judge, Zia Farokhia. So there you have it. I mean, the ongoing FUD will more than likely continue, as obviously Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world and regulators seem to have a problem with them and want to go after them for whatever apparent reason. So, like I said, hopefully in the end, you know, truth is revealed and the real story versus all the FUD and, you know, the manipulation of the price action and all the shenanigans we continue to witness in the market. And with that being shared, now let's dive into the Binance CEO, CZ and his 10 million dollar price prediction, as well as him predicting that Bitcoin price action could even a thousand X from here, sending the Bitcoin price parabolic to 26 or even 27 million dollars per coin. Let's break this baby down, shall we? Here we go. JV, have you ever heard of him? A crypto YouTube influencer from Crypto News Alerts remembered CZ's prediction. You're damn right I did. The Bitcoin would reach 10 million per coin. JV referred to the statement in a recent video uploaded on YouTube where he analyzes various aspects of the Bitcoin market development. Now, JV looked back at CZ's Bitcoin prediction while analyzing the Bitcoin CEO's recent Twitter comments. And in a Q &A session on July 5th, CZ addressed several issues, including Binance's reaction to the ongoing regulatory scrutiny. He also spoke about the rising interest of institutional investors in crypto currencies, as well as the proposed BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF. CZ made the 10 million dollar price prediction back in 2021. In fact, I have the article already pulled up and I'm going to be reading word for word what he shared. Following MicroStrategy's announcement, allocating Bitcoin for the corporate strategy, CZ based his analysis on the possibility of several corporate companies, major institutions across the world, allocating just one percent of their corporate treasury into Bitcoin. And according to CZ, that would lead to a thousand X growth in the value of BTC. JV highlighted CZ's welcoming approach to institutional investors in the Bitcoin ecosystem, and CZ noted that advantages in traditional finance firms they bring to the crypto industry, despite concerns about their intentions clashing with Bitcoin's decentralized nature. And according to JV, CZ identified two key factors driving Binance's strategy for the next 18 months. They include the upcoming Bitcoin halving event now less than six months out, as well as, you know, we could be seeing a Bitcoin ETF here in the near future. The Bitcoin community expects the next halving to occur in April of 2024. Now quoting CZ word for word from the initial interview he made on Bloomberg Radio predicting a potential 1000 X increase in the Bitcoin price action. So here's what he had to say. Right now, I think only 11 companies again, this is right around the time that MicroStrategy announced putting Bitcoin on its balance sheet. They announced having allocating some talking about Bitcoin, like usually less than one percent of their corporate treasury to Bitcoin. And we think that it is most likely what caused the initial price rise. I think MicroStrategy's Michael Saylor started it first, but there are six hundred and fifty thousand companies in the world, like relatively established companies in the world, and their treasury is huge. Preach. So if all of them talking about these major institutions only allocated just one percent to Bitcoin, we are going to see, I don't know, 1000 X more growth in the Bitcoin price. And if they allocate more than one percent, then it's going to be even bigger. So I think people don't quite get the magnitude of the wave that is about to hit us. Now, let's run that math one more time. Fam, today's price is roughly twenty six thousand five hundred times that by one thousand. He's talking about a twenty six and a half million dollar Bitcoin price action. The potential if they only put one percent of their strategic reserves into Bitcoin, you do the math. If it's five X and five percent, what are we talking? One hundred and twenty million dollar Bitcoin price. Just saying this is coming from CZ, the world's richest man in crypto. So very powerful words indeed. Let's get back to this prediction of what he shared. So the finance CEO estimates that the flagship crypto can go up anywhere from nineteen hundred percent to twenty thousand percent from the current price levels from the time he made the prediction. And he goes on to share with price predictions. It is really, really difficult. I think it can go to, I don't know, one million dollars, ten million dollars. It is very hard to tell. And again, if we literally did a thousand X from today's price, we're talking twenty six and a half million per BTZ. So CZ also reveals that the exchange is onboarding new users as an at an unprecedented sustained rate during the bull run, outpacing its user growth during the twenty seventeen bull run. So again, this was during the twenty twenty one bull run. Here's what he had to share. Just to give people the idea, in twenty seventeen, when Bitcoin hit the peak of about 20 G's, we were seeing three hundred thousand new registered users per day. And that only happened for a couple of days. And that kind of trailed off and became slower. Now we're seeing sustained new user registrations above the peak and sustained like for over two to three months. So could you imagine running the world's largest crypto exchange and having over three hundred thousand new registered users every single day for like 90 days straight? That is insanity. And that's the previous market. I think twenty twenty four is likely going to outpace the previous market as Bitcoin becomes a common household name and as Bitcoin game theory continues in full effect. You have presidential candidates making Bitcoin a big determining factor. We have people like Ron DeSantis, Kennedy Jr., Javier Malay over in Argentina. So naturally, it's just going to create more commotion and positive catalysts for Bitcoin as we move forward into twenty twenty four. So, I mean, fireworks are ahead. Let me know how you feel. We're likely to finish out this year by December of twenty twenty three. Where do you feel the Bitcoin price action is likely to be?

"Give me a nursery rhyme. We'll we'll do and that purple box over there. Okay these are these ones that are written in cran. Yes i mean the way to write nursery right. Someone should put out a book of my nursery rhymes mother. Goose has one probably not her real name by the way. Probably something like goose sturlic or goose bomb and she changed it to sell more books. If i was a betting man i would say her name was jennifer goosing ten and some smart ass publisher came up with mother goose anyway. I think i should have a book of nursery rhymes out there. I would call it. Ron burgundy is better bountiful. Book of silly children's verse. I can't wait to read that Let's hear one okay. This one's called the spider spider spider way up high. Do you want my cherry pie. Come down come down on your string. Let me hear your small mouth sing. Sing me a spider lullaby and you shall have my cherry by. That wasn't actually that bad. Compared to some of your other stuff. I mean i was expecting more of an adult version of children's verse coming from you but i'm impressed. That was that was reasonable. Yeah i mean. I know my way around. Nursery rhymes young lady. Okay i see that. Here's one one time to time three time for. We used our butts mop the floor. Yeah that's more straightforward. Oh poetry should be easy on the ears which is not to sail. poetry should be about kittens lambs. No poaching needs to explore a darker subjects. Man's inner struggles loss and pain and suffering war and famine heartbreak and fear. This is a poem. I wrote that addresses.

"Yes albor. He liked the name. I guess. I probably shouldn't have said anything there. There's still a hit out them blassie. And now they'll know he's living in florida as al gore not former vice president al gore who by all accounts is a humanitarian and pretty good guy but just plain old gulf playing poolside sitting al gore. I feel like we may got off on a tangent. We definitely dead. I know you hate. Yeah but you made me do it. The woman who came at me with a knife and throwing stars and spikes in her shoes was a professional killer trained in martial arts and was as cold blooded as they come so you just slapped her response baxter trigger as she was lunging towards me and yes i. I got a quick chop in as she was going down unfortunately for her she fell on one of our own knives and blood. Out on my entrance baxter. And i wrapped the body and a sheet with some rocks and we wrote it into the pacific and dumped her in the water. I don't know how to talk about you. Disposing of a body. But let's just we've wandered so far off from today's topic. Let's just try to get back to it. Did you think the story there. Because that's not the end of the story. No several years later. A poor russian man claiming to be her husband appeared at my doorstep. I invited him in naturally. Yes he had learned from russian authorities. That a well respected newsman. At his dog had killed his wife. He wasn't looking for revenge. She was only looking for a memento something he could remember her by because they were very much in love. I have a soft spot for lovers. And and love as you know. But i'll confess. I had no such memento to give the poor parcel. However thinking fast. I handed him an unopened can of baxter's dog food and said with all conviction that his wife had asked me to give this can of dog food to her beloved husband. If he ever came looking for. That was the best you could think of. Well i was thinking on my feet. But here's the thing. He broke down sobbing in my arms clutching the can of dog food like it was a human heart and in some ways it was a human heart it was all i had left of his great love. In another way it was it was just a can of dog food carolina. I leave you with this. Love is strange. It's an all encompassing feeling of human purpose it centers us and it's perhaps the only reason we're here on earth it is also a can of dog food. Okay so what about. Oh what about joy this the topic. The today's podcast was supposed to be about joy. And you haven't really explained what it is or how to get it out of the hell. Should i know. I play the flute. I swim in the nude. I take surfing lessons from an old woman. A drink scotch and sit for hours and my car trying to look like an undercover cop. I go to the zoo and watch cheetahs pace up and down. I climb water towers and yell out my name a bill. Dream catchers and collect old lanterns. I read about vikings. I run backwards through malls eight anything that looks like chile. I write poetry. I danced like paula abdul. I enter illegal street racing competitions. I recognized as one of the world's best birdwatchers pleasure myself. Yes i know. I pleasure my wife. I love dogs. We could do this. Identify love flowers and songs about flowers. And i love love. And that's me in a nutshell. I have no idea what brings other people joy. I only hope everyone finds as much of it as i have. So there's no way for someone to find joy. There's no universal rule. No there is not. I'm sorry if i misled. Everyone definitely did however. There is a trick. I learned many years ago. That will make it easier for.

"That was number nine. What is the last indicator of joyless life for your listeners. Are very excited. Well i've written about it before. And i know at this point. It's almost heartless to bring it up. Because to this day there is no cure but the number ten positive indicator of joyless nece is being canadian. I'm a little confused. You overall being from canada. I've met some joyful canadians that you met here in the united states right. Yeah once out of their country. A canadian can infect become joyful person. But if they're still in canada and they they make denver broncos fans look like spongebob squarepants. Canadians are so joyless they can actually infect others around them and cause debilitating depression. That seems like intent. I'm just saying if you wake up in canada there is no tomorrow my guy. There is no hope of a future only the drudgery of your endless days and the horrifying bleakness of a night without end. We'll be cutting this out. Sleep is an escape and escape. Is all you dream about. If if you are canadian you don't need to other indicators on this list you are joyless scientists working on a cure and the most promising is to make your country part of the united states. There's there's a lot of fear though that you're joyless nece could infect us citizens so for now we are working on other gears drugs and talk therapy have been tested but the results have been disappointing in the meantime. Your best bet is to leave canada. Any place on earth will do wait so you participated in a study about drugs and talk therapy with with yes. Canadian subjects who are suffering joblessness from living in canada. I was there in the room. Two way mirror watching the studies. it sounds very controversial. Well it it's way ahead of its time and a lot of times You can't let the general public know what you're doing because it's so high level yeah i. I wonder if anyone knew what you were doing. Well the the thing is it wasn't working. We had pamela anderson. Oh oh my gosh. Ryan gosling and The bare naked ladies those were remain. Subject was it. That's where we are conducting the talk therapy with and it was. I was so full. These clinical trials are. They went nowhere. Well i'm gonna be honest. The sounds actually. Just plainly. Rude and i know for a fact that we have some canadian fans of this podcast so i just want to be respectful and what i would say to them is that joyless nece is a problem that afflicts many people not just canadians as you can see by my scientific list there are a lot of joyless people in the world. I didn't talk about racist or sexist or big. It's of any kind. I didn't didn't talk about proud boys or people on twitter. But as we know these people experience very low levels of joy and high levels of sociopathic anger is a great indicator of low joy levels. So my list isn't definitive but it is scientific. It's it's no coincidence. That if you own deve cover you probably have a fish or shop at costco or are canadian they usually up most most joyless. People have at least three of these traits from my list. Okay you've classified all kinds of joyless traits and you and i had some fun thinking of joyless sentences to say but i just feel like an a podcast about joy you haven't really define joy or explained how to get joy out of life for some of our listeners. Who tuned in for that reason. Well i was getting to it. I mean i i. I don't like feeling rushed carolina. i. I'm not rushing out. I know you can eat an italian meatball sub and under five seconds. Okay but some of us like to take our time with things. So i'm sorry. And i'm not accusing who being a glut. You're young and impatient. Yes you can be quite pushy. Even bordering on mean. But i'm not blaming you okay. Don't push me though i'm not. Oh pushback. I'm i don't know much about the so-called me too movement but i'm assuming there's still room for a fistfight or two between us. I'm sorry i'm not sure i'm understanding. Are you threatening to beat me up. Because i asked you to explain joy. Oh goodness no of course not you. You're misinterpreting me again as always but what would happen if we just finally got to the bottom of this anger we have towards each other and we. We both just got planks of wood and kick the batum each other. Well that's not really fair because you've been in so many weird battles and gladiator fights and i've never even been in a fistfight. What about slapping. Have you ever been in a slapping fight or catfight. Women often get in catfights with hair pulling and scratching. I see it a lot in footage from miami beach. You've been in some of these over the years. I assume no no not really. I mean there was this one time in college i gone to a shoving fight in a bar and i. It ended up slapping that person. Exhilarating right i mean yeah. I hate to admit that but it was. It was kind of refreshing a good open hand slap for someone who truly deserves. It can be very refreshing. I want slapped an old man who kicked my dog baxter. For no reason at all baxter was minding his own business in the park one day chasing butterflies. He really can be a stupid doke. Sometimes when this elderly man threatened to lock him up. I exchanged some heated words with the gentlemen. And although i'm not proud. I insulted his shoes. They were these tacky auburn loafers. The apparently didn't like what i had to say about. His shoes in kicked baxter. Oh my god. Yes so. I slapped him and it was a wonderful slap and he knew it i think looking back on it he would say it was a well placed in well-timed slap. You shouldn't slap old men well. You shouldn't kick dogs either. I don't think it's the same. You're so now so now. You hate dogs fascinated. I don't i have dogs. Just i don't want to hear stories about you hitting the elderly. It's not allowable. I didn't make a habit of it. I probably only hit a handful of old people in my life. One came at me with a knife she was kgb and a hired assassin was. I not allowed to defend myself. Don't twist what i'm saying. I'm not saying that you're just. You're a tall large man. And unless you're protecting yourself. I see no reason for you to ever hit an older man or god forbid and older woman there was a hit on me in the late seventies. It was an open hit any qualified professional. Could take their shot at me. I had massad guys chinese guys. Kgb an independent contractors coming at me all hours of the day one day in june nineteen seventy eight. I fought off four different hitmen. The last attempt ending in a high speed car chase through the santiago zoo. There was a lot of blood that day most of it hippopotamus but also the french hitmen who came at me. I'm sorry i missed why there was a hit on you. Well it was all a big mix up. I looked like some polish criminal named ivan blackie. And they they came at me. Oh yeah blackie sent me. Flowers every year for twenty years thanking me for taking the heat. We became good friends even though he was a notorious murderer. A drug dealer a human trafficker says we to what happened to ivan blacks. He's living the good life. You got a plastic surgery. Move to florida and changed his name to al gore. Okay al gore. Not that al gore. Jeez but.

"You go to the beach. Those are flipflops. Flipflops are not santos is. There's a real distinction prison shoes in crocs permissible but i- frown upon them. I'm talking about leather. Sandals and crafted hippie shoes for grown men people who wear them are scientifically proven to be joyless people behavior number seven people who say they like the denver broncos. It's bad enough. That you live in america's most boring city it it doesn't make you joyless though but saying you like the denver broncos definitely classifies you as a joyless person. I'm sorry bronco fans you're you're not a terrible person. You're likely what we call a good person. You are a nice person. Probably but because you say i like the denver broncos we now know through science that you are joyless and on the scale of joyless nece you are also at the level of no fun so you are especially joyless. Maybe pick another team like the arizona cardinals that one feels personal but can continue siphoned dang. Okay behavior number. Eight owning deve cover. What's wrong with owning a debate. Cover be careful there. Carolina all right. You're treading on thin ice over there. If you say you have a deve cover. Then that's three on my list and you're done your joyless. I actually just used blankets. But i'm just curious what could be wrong with owning a debate cover. Well are you kidding me. It's a giant bag there. There's no manmade reason on the planet for the invention of the do vega. If you have one or more than one and many people who own do vase have multiple duvet covers then you are especially joyless not as joyless as a person who likes the denver broncos but you're still pretty darn joyless. It seems harsh. I mean it. Just do they cover just technically protects your survey and keeps it clean so then you only have to wash the duvet cover. I'm not being harsh at all your carolina walking a cat outside on leashes very dumb believing costco is great. Deals also dumb but owning deve cover means you're insufferably joyless. If you want to experience immediate gratification enjoy not unlike an orgasm. Throw away your cover right now. It's not too late behavior number eight people who like hard seltzer. Well i'm good with this one. 'cause i don't drink the lucky again. Carolina dodging a bullet because drinking hard seltzer is one of the more joyless activities to come from our modern times. I'll confess i. I like a good scotch and soda from time to time. Although i prefer my scotch neat or with a couple of rocks on a hot day but a tasty scotch and soda is a far cry from an alcoholic apple berry flavored. Fizzy drink for grown adults. Who haven't even been weaned off of juice boxes and animal crackers. Jesus okay and it's flavors are created in a laboratory by robots might be making that these robots then throw in alcohol and seltzer water and put it in a can for dumbbells to drink. Here's the rub. They look like they're having a good time drinking hard seltzer. they might. They might even look like they are experiencing joy but the science is pretty clear here these are joyless people who should not be allowed in bars for the damage they could be doing to the atmosphere people who drink hard seltzer are joyless. If they look like they're having fun than how can you tell their joyless. I've been to parties where it looks like. People drinking hard seltzer having a good time. They don't oh. I don't doubt they look that way. They were probably taking their shirts off and shouting things like go. Broncos and these heart cells were on sale at costco. I mean hard seltzer plays tricks on social scientists because those that drink it do in fact give off the impression that they are having fun but multiple lab tests show they are not having fun and they are joyless the ninth behavior on this list. That is a dead giveaway that you are a joyless person is owning a fish a singular fish like what do you mean are having an aquarium. Yes if you have an aquarium with some fish a fish or multiple fish you are a joyless person. I don't know i can kind of see that. I mean if you have an aquarium that takes up a whole wall in your house and you have something like a shark or an eel or a manta. Ray you're not joyless. You experience great joy i. I've had such an aquarium. I had at one behind my bed. That took forty thousand gallons of water inside. It was a short vinh. Mako shark a hammerhead shark. And a killer whale it was. It was amazing. And if you threw a live pig in the aquarium the most beautiful colors of red and pink would swirl around giving the bedroom all a whorehouse glow that was very sensual. Oh god and i found out the hard way killer. Whales should not be kept in such a small aquarium Through ingenious sonar conversations. While i slept the killer whale who was named blobby convinced. The hammerhead shark named jason bourne to bang his head against the glass. Until it broke. I was gonna say doesn't sound safe. It sounded insecure. Well and because a lot of water damage anyway but apparently blop. His dream was to escape and eat me. It told you that. In the sonar sonar conversation. Yes fisher dumb though. And when they escaped they all died on the floor. Flopping around without water but with the story has a happy ending it does. They tasted great on the barbecue. Where was i you. You're saying that people who had aquariums were joyless. Yes i'm i'm having trouble following a little bit. Well i think. I think i clearly made the distinction that what i had was a cool aquarium. Yeah what you had was massively illegal but It sure was. I gonna lie about one. Fish is lame but a killer whale remember. It was a different time. I didn't realize you needed to have the paperwork and the health board. And where is this paperwork. I i never had it. That's what i'm saying. But what i had was joy but the average human who just has a couple of guppies in an aquarium. That's that's joyless. You ate your sharks. Because they died on your bedroom floor and to cover up the evidence i was about to do three years. In medium security prison for harbouring wild animals in an unsuitable environment but an aquarium with fish is a joyless endeavor. Listen to me carolina medium security prison. Okay i hear ya. An inquiry him with a few fish is a joyless endeavor and although i sympathize with these people they are still joyless. If it's the only thing on this list there guilty of then they they may vary well experienced joy in their lives. But my advice would be to eat those fish as quickly as they can and get the aquarium out of their house. There's plenty of fish in the sea as the saying goes which in this case applies to actual fish and the actual.

"So there is in fact a cabal of elites running our news and information services. Is that what you're saying. Precisely and the kabbalah is called capitalism. It's the fifth greatest ideology invented since the beginning of man. It's messy and silly and unfair and it leads to a lot of slanted untruthful news. That makes life very confusing for people who don't have hobbies. Wow so you're saying. Truth is impossible under a capitalist system. I'm not a professor at spelman college where you went to school. The answer is no there is truth. People have to be smart and used their noggins and sometimes if they're very lucky they will find it can get in the news. Help you bet. Did i try every night for my news desk. To tell the truth. I sure did. I also lies straight to people's faces. I did that too. I'm not even sorry about it. Lying is fun it just is. You must lie all the time. You're young and smart bet. You're a good liar I honestly try not to lie. It just makes me feel way to guilty. Is that ally now. No i call b s. Really give me a break. You are a foul mouth dirty liar and you know it. You know it you you filthy dirty lying machine. Everyone out of your mouth is a lie. A bold face lie. You have set a truthful thing to me ever ever. Do you hear me liar. You're the biggest lie in the world. Jennifer baglay run. Run run looking. It's me carolina. Where where did that come from some anger issues with an old girlfriend. And you do work through jennifer bagley. Yes jennifer bagley. She dumped me. And i took it pretty well did you. I remember i was calm and collected. Didn't bother me one bit. We set our goodbyes. I remember i went to macy's department store and bought a new pair of leather gloves. Holy hell that resurfaced in a very unexpected way. Didn't it yeah. It feels like maybe you carried a lot of inger around that rejection. it's normal. I mean we all carry anger around from past trauma at the time we push it away so we don't have to feel the pain but it always comes back one way or another to hurt us which it sounds like it's happening to you and it literally always will until you can sit down and honestly deal with the pain. I believe you're right carolina. Is it possible. These cunanan believers are carrying around a lot of rejection and trauma as you say yeah that they just haven't dealt with it in an honest way instead maybe they find comfort in ridiculous conspiracy theories about hillary clinton the way i might find comfort in gladiator films and long barefoot walks along the freeway. I guess we all have our ways of dealing with internal pain. I suppose there's nothing wrong with believing an elite cabal of satan worshippers eats babies. I i guess it's only wrong when they stormed the capitol building. So basically you're saying cunanan it's harmless will accept that most of them are racist too. Yeah so in that sense. We're talking about some pretty gullible. Dumb to are mad. They've been rejected in the world and can't deal with it. It would be great if they all got hobbies and mellowed out. But in the meantime all we can do is laugh at them. The world keeps moving on their. They're kind will lose out a new conspiracy theories we'll take the place of the old right. There is one conspiracy theory is. You'll never let go of. And i will believe to the day i die Yeah which ones that. You could probably guess what i'm going to say. No i can't. I can never do that. Big about one of the things. I like to talk about a lot The patty cakes the conspiracy of love. All right right yes. I guess that makes sense. Love controls the world despite what it looks like in our or newspapers and on tv love has held us together throughout the history of man for if it were not for love we would have finished ourselves off long ago there. There's no need to look any deeper than that. A great power. We don't understand does control everything. It is a conspiracy a conspiracy born within the human art. The conspiracy is love for. What is love. Gosh darn it. my god. That was very ill tied. But i just couldn't that in what a corker a real room clear. It's so awful brought tears to your eyes. I'm excuse me. I certainly didn't mean to put on a broadway musical so to speak. I'll tell you what happened. I had a lobster sandwich for lunch and for the life of me. I don't remember buying it so it could have been months old. Jesus that will take a toll on the digestive system for sure and for those of you not in the studio to throw up the sound although grandiose and forceful can't even compare to the damage it's doing to the air quality here in this small cities and i have carolina.

"Don't know we should do that. Episode but i i wanna make it abundantly clear. I have never ever eaten a baby. No one thinks that needs to be on the record. Ron burgundy is never eaten a baby. Are we clear yes. We always assumed that. I know some pretty powerful people. Randy quaid comes to mind. Neil degrasse tyson. Another tick tock celebrity. Charlie demilio so yeah. I'm a big deal. And as far as i know none of them have engaged in baby eating. That said let's discuss the science. I think there's some idea that would eating a baby make you appear younger. That's the question. Yes once again. I've never eaten a baby however my old work associate and drinking buddy champ kind once took me on an adventure into one of the darkest corners of human depravity champ as you know could be a little reckless in his associations that introduced me to a suspicious man named larry choi who claimed he could rejuvenate the human body with adrenal chrome harvesting. If you haven't heard of a drina chrome harvesting than you're lucky. I was to learn all too much about this. Very real and dangerous. Subject champ introduced me to mr choi one night in a denny's diner where munch carelessly on a three grand slam breakfast with bacon and sausage patties and home fries along with two silver dollar pancakes and a of ham slices with french toast and another omelet with fettuccine and ham. Which the side dish of sausage links and a wave those grand cherries and biscuits and gravy. Oh washed down with hot cups of coffee and a multi milkshake letsmove all for fourteen ninety nine in between bites. I got to know. Larry choy and he invited me to a private island off the coast of south america where certain celebrities liberal elites in high powered athletes were also present not wanting to damage anyone's reputation. I can't divulge who was there. I could drop clues if you want to really work at it. You can try. For instance a recent super bowl winning quarterback who used to play for the new england patriots. Was there a handsome hollywood leading man known for his work in titanic and peter. The'll so you just outed tom brady. Leonardo dicaprio and peter feel. You're a super sleuth. No i made that. I made that super easy. I couldn't help. It was kinda cool. That i was on a secluded island with these celebrities and and others. I can't mention evan. Longoria ashen cushier. Lebron james i get help it to be an accompanying these people it. It speaks to my vanity. Hillary clinton george stephen king enough. I'm revealing to no one's asking here nightly halle berry brian williams. They're all done good. Andy sandberg michael strahan dame judi dench so many more anyway. Suffice it to say. I was in good company now for my listeners. Who are little squeamish the details of what i'm about to tell you are horrific beyond the pale if you cannot handle blood or torture or murder. Please stop listening. Oh wait cameron diaz. Was there to decide to throw that right. The events that followed did in fact happen and by recounting them. I know i'll give great support to the cunanan followers. But i cannot deny the facts of the night. Are you ready carolina. I really. I don't know if i am carolina. This is real life. i'm talking about. Are you ready many. I'm ready there. We were this majestic group of elite people seated along to beautifully appointed dining tables in an outdoor patio that overlook the ocean. The atmosphere was electric over in the corner. Popular singer and musician sting laid gently on his guitar. For our amusement. The conversation was intoxicating and the wind was selected by the finest somalia from the private boats of peter. Theo from out of the lodge. A group of masked waiters appeared holding individual serving platters covered on top. So we could not as of yet see the delicious meal that was to come each person there. Rachel maddow was there had their own covered silver platter. The anticipation was great. Larry choi made a quick toast and then told everyone to dig in. I lifted the cover off my plate and there before me was a live baby all right at first. I thought this must be some kind of joke. But i turn my head and saw all of these elites and hollywood celebrities taking huge four fools of baby meat and stuffing in their mouth. Run not i know. None of this happened. Of course not i'm bullshitting right. Okay see how easy it is to make up stories about people. We don't know a do know. Michael strahan we got in. No one eats babies. It's ridiculous carolina but it's fun to make up means stories about people who have better lives than ours. It just is are there some elites who are immoral and criminal right share. Donald trump comes to mind along with jeffrey epstein. But is there a group of elites that he'd babies or drink blood. Gimme a break people. There are too many americans who spend too much time online reading about hillary clinton satanic baby eating cold and not enough time with hobbies. Do you have hobbies carolina hobby. I i don't know. I like shopping online. I guess an. And then i watch. Tv so like most people. Well that's the problem with kids. these days. What happened to hobbies we should we should do a whole show on hobbies. I have so many hobbies. I hardly have time for my hobbies. I like to whittled. You like to whittle like little. Would i never even tried. Give it a try. Wh-whittling fun about stamp collecting. Do you collect stamps. No neither do i. But stamp collecting would take perseverance and research. If you collected stamps you probably wouldn't have time to think about a cabal of satan worshipping elites who are staying youthful by eating babies. No you'd be on the lookout for that rare. Inverted jenny the rarest stamp out there what a hobby that would be. You can almost feel the blood pumping excitement in stamp collecting. Can't you care the blood pumping excitement stamp collecting kind of sounds boring as hobbies. Go sure it's boring. If you're used to sitting around looking at porn all night and reading about satanic colts but not all hobbies are boring by the way. Well give me an exciting hobby. Okay easy metal detecting if you want to get the blood pumping and the heart racing. Get yourself a metal detector. It's a better feeling than you ever get in nevada. Whorehouse if you know what i mean. You can't just say that. And i don't know what you mean. You've never even talked about metal detecting to me before i can't. I'm afraid of might review my secret spots us secret spots. Yes a metal heads as we call ourselves. You know we have all our secret. Locations were great have been found so no need to invite other medal heads to take our plunder over the years. I've found watches rings coins. Aplenty even found spanish. Two balloons were thousands of dollars. However i don't do it to make money or brag. I'm saying if you don't do it to make money are brag. Why do you do it. It's good fun. And here's the bonus because i'm out there looking for old medal. I don't spend my time thinking there's a satanic cult stealing babies and eating them that does make sense. of course it makes sense. If people had hobbies they wouldn't care about demographic changes in the country. It wouldn't care about gay people getting married or who's using a bathroom. Remember that guy who drew four hundred miles to comet ping pong pizza because he thought hillary and john podesta we're operating a pedophile ring in the back Get the they call it pizza gate. He actually shot the place up well if he collected bottles or painted rocks. He wouldn't have done that he wouldn't be in jail. He'd be at home cleaning his bottle collection or painting a rock to look like a lady bug. People need to get hobbies. It's that's okay. But what about the news media. Is there a cabal of elites who run our news. Outlets that i'm afraid is true. I worked in the news game for most of my life as you know right in fact not to brag but i was one of the most important news anchors in the history of evening news for much of my career i was with. Vw an on channel four down in santiago. A town kissed by the sun gods and blessed by the end. We all know this what people don't know too well as i did a stint out of little rock on the news desk for their evening news. The station was w. r. o. P. you can look it up. This is a true story and it was owned and operated by clem hawkins. The amc king. They called him. Clinton was married to a very beautiful large. Very large. extremely large woman named patricia and hawkins everyone included clem called her patty cakes. When i got two little rock there was a lot of unrest brewing over civil rights. The vietnam war and women's lib. I was eager to get stories about these earth shattering events out to my viewers. My first day clem sat me down and explain the rules. I quickly learned. I wasn't going to have a lot of say about the kinds of stories. I was reporting on. He and patty. Cakes had approved everything we reported on in our half hour. Patty cakes didn't mind a little pizzazz. She tolerated some feel good stories from vietnam. Good stories from vs and an occasional story about a woman with her own business. She apparently spent a semester in east coast school getting a liberal education. But she didn't want to dip her large pink round toes in any of the boiling waters of that civil rights stuff. The ham king had a business and he couldn't take sides too much on any issue is business was to provide the juiciest and most tender honeybaked the little rock and the surrounding areas. He reasoned if he ran a story that anger divided as viewers. He could lose out on a ham sale stories that were to political. Were out of the question hour job besides reporting on the amazing charitable work of patty cakes of which truth be told there were none was to keep everyone happy and sell hams. Hams built the empire. Clem hawkins sat atop and he'd be damned if his own. Tv station wasn't going to keep it that way so you avoided new stories that might make people sad or angry because the owner didn't want a drop in ham sales is that am i getting that right. The essentially. yes. Well i can imagine as a newsman dot must have been oppressive. I mean. I bet you're glad to get out of there. Are you kidding me. I love little rock. I had a house overlooking the arkansas river with an eight person capacity hot tub. My face was on billboards all over town. I hosted the annual easter egg hunt. But you're a news anchor. You didn't get to tell the news didn't matter to me. I was young and having a ball. So why did you leave little rock. Well you know me. I got into the old trouble. I always get into. I had patty cakes in my hot tub almost every night and and we weren't playing patty cakes if you know what i mean. You don't have to tell me. Almost everyone in town knew. I was rolling around with clemes wife except the ham king himself. Let me tell you something. She was a real expert professional. I don't need to yeah. I'm sure you don't have any idea what i'm talking about. I'm not really interested. No of course not. Do you like a plump guy I base my romantic attachments on character. Usually i don't think about that stuff me do one hundred percent. Do you like the character of a plump. Very hefty gentlemen. You know we've talked about this with hr in the room. But i don't really wanna talk about my love life. I'm not going to start a cult to get laid. And i'm not going to talk about professional lovers fair enough yes. Hr says. i can't push pushing it right now. Bush bush real. Good berber bob but ana how forgive me to say this patty cakes if you're still out there and you're listening. You're always welcome in the burgundy hot tub. Do not bring your husband. Do bring one of his hams. They were beyond delicious. They hand kings hams. His hams were mouth-watering lee. Good you tried to shoot my own butt off. But i slipped this crisis. Yeah i slipped out of town on stolen stingray bicycle. Those were desperate days. They they were heady days and days filled with wonder and love. I'm sorry i'm just. I'm still a little confused about story. You say you didn't mind. The station owner controlling the news. You're a news anchor so you're there to tell people what's going on in the world right both carolina what they do they teach you at mount holyoke college. Let me tell you something about the news. Game young lady. There's never been a new show that isn't controlled by business. Interest the end whether it's keeping your margin selling hams or selling ad. Space news is not truth when some station owner ways the cost of financial damage against truthful news. The scale never tips to the truth. I was the top anchorman and that santiago region. Because i kept the ratings up way up. I'm handsome of the best voice. And i have a great deal of sex appeal if i didn't have the trifecta as it's known in the news game then ratings would have dropped an. I would have been out pure business decision. There isn't a news station out there that can afford to tell americans the truth okay. What about pbs. Though it stands for pure bullsh- they've got their own pressures to stay afloat and they have to suck a lot of metaphorical and literal boehner's to do it. You can quote me on that. I don't folks my name. Is ron burgundy. And here's a funny story. A few years ago. I was running late for work at the news desk and i arrived on set without my pants. There was a lot of laughter and i was somewhat embarrassed. Although not to toot my own home. I looked pretty good and my daddy. Whitey's i'm a handsome man however the news is serious business and i needed pants. Quick in a few minutes to drive over to the men's store and grab some slack. So i jumped back in my car. And lo and behold. I got pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt. Talk about a cold slap in the face here. I was on a budget going to get an emergency pair of dress pants and suddenly. I'm out a whole bundle of cash. I turned around and did the newscasts in my underwear. I looked like a real idiot. And that's my point. Don't let a ticket for something as stupid as buckling up your seatbelt. Take away money. You need for more important stuff like pants. Click it or ticket pants or no pants.

Somewhere in the house she found an old nineteen thirty's tommy gun and she sprayed the yard with lead. Everyone is uh it's not straight up. Finally she ran out of bullets bodies everywhere.

"ron" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report
"But i think the answer is finding a principle of non intervention in the principles of liberty can go a long way to solve these problems. Daniel just backing up a little bit. Dr paul because you made a good point earlier. He made a lot of good points of course but early on when you mentioned the corona virus situation because yes we have indeed walk on eggshells over the the course of the last several months. Because it's been made very clear to us what you can and can't say Your position has been clear which is very skeptical of lockdowns finding them counterproductive And finding that more harmful than good and in fact. It's interesting because that was supposedly against the science. You can't say that it's against the science and now all of a sudden novi. You've probably noticed this. Dr paul none other than governor cuomo has done a flip. Flop has done a one eighty and said we can't stay lockdown forever. There's not going to be anything left to open up you know. The lockdown is bad. And even people like neil ferguson in the uk now are changing their tunes on these things. So this is a danger of a rigidly enforced of sort of paradigm by big social media companies. You can't say this because it goes against this for these things change quite often in fact it it. It does have the effect of squelching debate. And you know the the genius of suppression under the soviet system was not that they had someone in everyone's house making sure they didn't say anything against the government. They didn't have someone with a gun to your head making. Sure that you Went out and marched on may day would they did is they. Got people to self censor. They stopped bringing up controversial topics. Because it just isn't worth it. Hey i don't wanna lose my job. I don't wanna lose my friends. I don't want to lose my social media account so people just stopped talking about controversial things. What did they do varied themselves in alcohol and our cottage and other things because it's part of human nature to express our views even on controversial things like people always said dr paul. We don't have free speech that we can talk about the weather. And so this is the real danger of distance. Shrinking the public sphere the ability for us to talk to each other the self-censorship it causes severe psychological damage. It causes damage to our way of life to democracy for backwards better word and hopefully people will start waking up. If you don't like donald trump's tweets don't follow him. If you don't like nancy pelosi don't follow her. If you don't like press tv don't read it but don't go into this frenzy of.
