BlockFi Sues Sam Bankman-Fried Over Robinhood Shares
"Now when it comes to the crypto contagion story, not much has changed since yesterday. There is still a conspicuous lack of updates from genesis and digital currency group, although some amount of doom posting has subsided. Whether that's because there's new information or simply declining engagement with that doom posting, it's not exactly clear. Still, for those looking for a sliver of hopium, yesterday, massari's Ryan selk wrote, I am 90% confident that genesis does not need to go into chapter 11. That would be a strategic choice, but not a necessity. Beyond that, the most interesting follow-up to yesterday's contagion stories is a bit of bankruptcy to Ted between BlockFi and FTX. If you listen to the show yesterday, you know that BlockFi filed for chapter 11 on Monday. Well, on the same day, they also sued Sam bankman freed. Their complaint is aimed at emergent fidelity technologies, which is one of Sam's wholly owned holding companies. The suit is demanding that emergent, AKA Sam, turn over, quote unquote, unspecified collateral, which would be interesting on its own. However, according to loan documents seen by the Financial Times, the collateral in question is SPF's Robinhood shares. Remember, earlier this year, Sam bought about 7.6% of Robinhood, which sparked massive rumors that he was going to try to acquire the company outright. So here's the core of the suit. BlockFi claims that on November 9th, which was of course when everything was falling apart for FTX, but a couple days before its bankruptcy, emergent signed an agreement to guarantee Alameda's obligations to BlockFi, pledging a certain common stock as a security. When it appears like from the outside and looking back, was that as Sam was frantically trying to save FTX in Alameda from crumbling under their own weight, he tried to get BlockFi to chill out on calling do some of Alameda's deaths by pledging his Robin Hood stock as collateral. Now, importantly, earlier this month, FT also reported that based on signal messages they had seen, SPF had at the same time been trying to sell his Robin Hood shares to various parties directly. Those sale attempts continued right on through signing this pledge all the way until the evening of November 10th. However, whatever deal BlockFi thought it had was shot all to hell when FTX filed for bankruptcy.
A Recipe for a Hollywood Fight
"Michael viner was the owner of dove publishing. He had a number of decent books that came out in the 90s, the most famous one was you'll never make love in this town again. And when I was dating Jermaine Jackson's ex-wife, Margaret Maldonado. She was working for him at the time, but for Michael viner. And one day she sneaked me in early copy of this salacious book, and no one had seen it yet, Margaret got the proofs and begged me not to show or tell anyone about it. I said, no, no, I won't. I'm not going to write about it. I just want to read it myself, okay? So I go back to the hotel or wherever I was and start reading this book and the proofs and maybe two years ago, I read a couple of the more filthy chapters on this show. The book contains a bunch of stories written by three prostitutes and one actress about this sexual encounters with a bunch of different Hollywood celebrities. There was a Robin and Liza grier, Linda Hammond, and Alexandra daddy. And inside are all these lurid tales of what these girls discovered while having sex with the likes of Nicholson Warren Beatty, Don Henley, Bruce Willis, Robert Evans, John Claude Van Damme, Mickey Rourke, on and on. And a very, very detailed stories. Whether they're all true or not, I don't know. It's just the horrors point of view. So my jaw was on the floor when I started reading this. A couple of days later, I'm at Evans house for one of his great get togethers. Robert Shapiro, Geraldo Rivera, Jacqueline bessette, Beverly Johnson, Neil sedaka, a lot of luminaries in addition to the dynamic to all of Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, who are always at Evans house back in the 90s, and now I have all this information inside me bursting out and I don't know that Jack Warren and bob know about this. And then my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing. The publisher Michael Weiner walks into the party. And he lived a few doors down from heaven, so it kind of made sense, but I know all this information from the book he published and I grabbed Margaret and I go, what the fuck is he doing here? She's like, what's the big deal? I go, he's publishing a book about what a few hookers have to say about a few of the men at this party. But balls on this guy,
"robin" Discussed on The Coin Bureau Podcast: Crypto Without the Hype
"And there's always going to be something new to show you what we've been up to. So I'm hoping that that will kind of mitigate that to a degree. But I'm not naive enough to think that we weren't trip up and get our community angry with us. At certain points because unfortunately, that's just the, that's just the world we're in. It comes with the territory, doesn't it? It does. Yeah. Well, Robin, I mean, I think here we are, we're staring down the barrel of a bear market that is going to last for God knows how long. But I really feel that with what you're doing with base AF, it ain't going to be all bad. There's going to be there's still cool stuff happening. And I mean, I hear I hear anecdotally, just in the crypto space in general about all the building going on. And all the crazy stuff that's happening behind the scenes. And I try to I try to tell people that I try to let people know that. But it's hard because there's so there's often so little in the way of tangible results. And you do sort of feel it's like, well, you're just going to have to wait to see what these projects are doing. But I think based AF is going to is just going to just put it out there and let us see let us see some building and some experimentation just happened in real time. I think it's going to make the bear market that much more bearable. Well, I hope so. We're definitely not leaving anything on the table when it comes to this because we can't. The name based AF demands that we go there and we push things to the max. But that's kind of what I wanted to do this. I wanted to go out with a bang. What can I see myself doing for the next ten years? And try and build something that had my stamp on it because I think a lot of the way that I've produced over the last 25 years was dishonest if I'm honest. Because it was just me pastiche and other people or trying to punch in a certain weight class and so presenting whether I thought would do that. Whereas now I don't give a monkeys anymore. I'm just like, what do I want to do? Well, how am I going to do it? I've learned all this stuff. I know how to do this. Where am I going to find the creative satisfaction of just pushing the boundaries and going to places that just no one's ever been to before? Okay. Well, here it is. So knowing that, it kind of gives you a lot of confidence that you can't really fail. You just got to be bold enough and brave enough to make those decisions that are going to scare you a little bit, but again, why else do it? There's no point unless you're going to be really commit. Yeah, and there's no point unless you're going to enjoy the journey, enjoy the ride. Oh yeah. And what a rat it's going to be. Stay tuned. Yeah, absolutely. Oh, it's brilliant. Well, thank you, Robin. I really appreciate you taking the time to talk to me today about this because it's just great to just great to cover something so positive and exciting and just mad. I've got to say it. This method in the madness, trust me. Oh, I'm sure. I'm sure, but sometimes I'm like, why? Why did we decide to do this? It's funny. Well, it's just great to hear that after all the amazing work that you did with the defiant.
Caller: How Could Anyone Support John Fetterman?
"Say, it's unbelievable to me again. You know, I couldn't believe mulroy, we went here to Memphis, prime example, 20, 25% of registered Republicans got off their buds and went and voted in the important election. Let me get in get the win. So I thought, okay, maybe we'll learn a list. So now let me not necessarily tend to say did okay. But look, I mean, and maybe there was something going on in Pennsylvania. But you know, if my dog ran against John fetterman, I would have to vote for my dog. I mean, there's no way, how could anybody with half a tenth of an IQ vote for federman. Number one, and Robin even though the stroke, his policy are exactly what killing this country right now, and he's even farther left than those policies. And Pennsylvania, fracking capital, and he's against it. They need lives to everybody in their faces like y'all are idiots. What did they just say, oh, okay. I guess we found the truth. He changed his mind. I mean, I don't even understand it. I just don't know, and I mean, there's obviously no time to panic, so to speak, but whatever we need to figure something out, I'm talking about blaming everybody. Trump, I'm a Trump. I'm a Trump fan. I don't worship him. I believe in his policy. And I believe in Rhonda santas. You know, I went to Florida during COVID. I'm telling you when I went down there. It was like I was literally in another country. You are a man if you wanted to. Mother tonight, you didn't have to wear a mask, restaurants were open all hours of the night. You could do whatever you wanted to. It was unbelievable. Literally, I didn't know what had happened. Did I fall into a portal or something? But I mean, we've got to figure something out. This is unbelievable. I mean, is there some of the Democrats? Is there a different price they pay at the gas bomb? Or it's a grocery store than what we pay? Bill,
AJ on Harvey Weinstein and 'Good Will Hunting'
"I registered today that reminded me of the very wicked wicked ways of Harvey Weinstein. But this time he was screwing a guy. Now not the way you think. You got to go back to the days and 1997 when the smash hit, good will hunting was out in theaters, they spent 10 million to make that movie with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and it ended up earning 225 million at the box office, one couple of Oscars, Matt and Ben got the screen playwriting award and Robin and Williams got best supporting actor, but there was some bullshit that occurred. You know, years ago I told you the story where Harvey paid Matt and Ben has started amount of money. No one expected this movie to blow up like this. All different types of screenwriters to punch up the script. In fact, word is the original script didn't even have a love interest that was played by Minnie Driver. There was some other things in the script that just in the initial script that Matt and Ben wrote that were not there. And Harvey had to do considerable amount of work finding script doctors to punch it up and he did. So when the movie time started to make a ton of money, Matt and Ben were very grateful, but there's a famous story that he told me where they said, you know, we really feel like we didn't get paid enough. I mean, in hindsight, they're right, but shit, the guy gave them their starts and they won an Oscar, but they still cried about, you know, we only got a certain amount and now the movie is over a 150 mil. And Harvey, it was in a hotel. He met them in a hotel, and I'm sorry, they called him. They had a meeting. They told him to man. And so I think about it. But he was pissed off. And then they kept hounding him. And he said, where the fuck are you guys? And they tell them what I'll tell they were at. I should stay put. And about two hours later, Harvey had a $1 million in a hefty bed, a garbage bag. And he threw it at them on the bed. And he said, I don't ask you another fucking thing. I'll kill you. I'm kidding, but I'm not. Now, then in that work, considerably happy back then to get a quick extra mill on top of whatever they got paid. I guess that shut them up, but that's one side of Weinstein. But on the same, the very same film. Kevin Smith, the director, was telling a story. That Weinstein actually pulled the movie from the fears early because he wanted to fuck around with Robin Williams Korea. Now, generally you hear him, you hear these stories about Harvey being this play with women. I've never heard much about him doing this sort of thing to a man.
Meghan and Harry Fear the Bling Ring
"Yeah, crime is up everywhere, man. Meghan Markle and prince Harry are scared. And their neighborhood. They're leaving their $14 million montecito home. There's no crime in montecito. There's not even flower boxes that get pushed over. So they have their sights on that. I'm very exclusive California private community called hope branch. People say the couple have, well, their current sprawling home doesn't properly accommodate them. Because they're a family of four. I don't know what that means it's too big or too small, but nothing I'm on aceto small, hope ranch is a suburb of Santa Barbara, California. Very affluent community, a lot of equestrians there. There's a nearby country club, there's a tennis court, a golf club, almost 30 miles of horse track riding trails, because all the 10% of the community owned horses there. The room while they're moving, this is the rumor. There was a news story that came out that there's a bling ring type of style, you know, out of area, death gang. And apparently they heard through the Grapevine that they had the Dutch and the duke and duchess montecito neighborhood on their hit list. Yeah, I mean, it's a great place to go Robin. It's got money everywhere. I mean, Adam Levine's out there, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres. Yeah. Make a lot of money out there with a bling ring. And I don't want to see these two git hurt, but I wouldn't mind finding out they got robbed. Like a Kim Kardashian Paris style robbery. Megan Markle needs that. There's always something that's hard on them. The family was harder than the queen was hard. They want their privacy. Her stupid podcast, his complete befuddled face everywhere.
Amber Athey: Diversifying Your Message vs. Censoring per Platform
"No I don't blame you but I always say I'm not one of these goofball leftists who complains You know you want your stuff out there on every platform possible Honestly not that not to put you as Robin But the reason I got off YouTube though is because I found and I don't know if you're experiencing this too You know because you started on rumble and YouTube you're kind of insulated but a lot of people didn't And this is why I don't get into criticizing others A lot of them Friends of ours by the way They've been at this game ten years and they built you know hundreds of thousands if not millions of followers on YouTube and YouTube kind of has them by you know you know what And they self censor a little bit I know it because they don't want to lose that audience Now I decided to make the break I'm going to be talking about Google and true social a little bit later in the show I hope I get to it But I made the break because I don't like to kind of play tough guy with my audience I found myself occasionally doing that too Like saying things different than I would have and I swore earlier in my life I got mugged one time and I said I'll never negotiate from a position of fear again I went and started taking these mixed martial arts class or whatever And I got off there But I don't blame people for getting their message out as wide as possible But there's no question that people out there They do self censor because these platforms they know if they say something like this versus this there's potential for them to get bumped Your general thoughts on that I think it's a great point and I'm certain that people do do that I'm really lucky in that the podcast is not my main source of income So I don't care if you two demonetize as one of my videos It doesn't really matter to me if one of them gets scrubbed for me I'm just trying to diversify who gets to watch my content and try to make it accessible to as many people as possible But I'll tell you what if that was the only way I was making money it would change my behavior no doubt
Hulu's Mike Tyson Series Is Good Despite His Disapproval
"You can not sleep on the series about Mike Tyson on Hulu. The streaming platform Hulu. They had a way of doing things and putting the show together. It's in a really great way, the actor playing Mike Tyson is trevante Rhodes. He was in moonlight. He was in bird box. He gets Mike's mannerisms down like you can't believe. This guy should be an impressionist. Harvey Keitel plays the famous train of custom motto who eventually, you know, adopted Mike and let him live in his house upstate New York to get him out of Brownsville, but the scenes and Brownsville Brooklyn of where he grew up and what it was life, what his life was like brutal. Robin Givens his ex-wife and her mother, they come across as a really bad and conniving pair of women, but Mike's brutality in the ring and his brutality when he had his one man show his brutal honesty when he had his one man show. They kind of go hand in hand. And it wasn't until that night that he began to speak so honestly that he just said to everybody, I'm going to tell you all the truth, all right? I'm going to take you back. I'm going to tell you, I'm going to tell you everything. And that always turned me on when someone says that as a person who always followed people around and tried to get dirt, dig up dirt. It's the people who were just so honest that you don't chase his heart. You just go, you know, the guy said he has problems here and there. I'm not going to go keep digging up rocks. He is who he is. He's imperfect. It's the people who just lie and you just go, I'm going to catch this guy. So I love that honesty about Mike Tyson. That's what made America fall in love with him again. It's hard to turn away from. Unfortunately, Mike is not happy about Hulu, running this series.
AJ Takes on Trump on Howard Stern in 2001
"Sit back and enjoy AJ versus Trump on Howard Stern may 11th, 2001. Donald Trump's on the phone. He can't call in tomorrow because of a flight scheduling problem. So he wanted to quickly get on the air. He is not coming in live. No, no, he was always calling him. I did not know that. Donald. How are you? Oh, by the way, arch enemy AJ Benz is here. AJ is a nice guy. I like him even though he said negative things about me in his book. This one shaft is worth. That's all. I can't believe it. Did you know you went after his girlfriend? Yes. I stole his girlfriend, but I didn't know I was stealing his girlfriend, Robin. He's so nervous. Nobody told me I was stealing your girlfriend. Nobody told me that was your girlfriend. I know. Well, you brought Donald guy, so I have to believe you. Wait a second. Isn't it one of the greatest things in the world to be able to steal AJ's girlfriend? You know what? I've always liked AJ. AJ rightfully can't stand me now, and I can understand that. But wait a minute. At the time, at the time, I did something that I didn't know I was doing. I had no idea what was AJ's girlfriend, and it's one of those little things. Okay, I moved to LA as a main car breakup. So she was a free agent. You know, even though he's still up. So I don't know. We broke up. But then I got back to town, and I approached all of the party at Charles Evans house. And I said, hey, this is not so long piece of me. I love this girl. Now, stay away. I had naked pictures of your wife a long time ago when I was a cool guy and gave me the shots. And he said, you're right, I'm sorry. Chuck Jones was sent in the Xerox. All right, go ahead, yeah. And I gained it on his AJ, he was stand up guy. Then he forgets what I did from now. If he was cool, he would have walked away. I realized you can't make any girls sleep. Of course. I understand that. But as a man's management said, it is plenty of girls out there.
Student Loan Forgiveness Is Reverse Robin Hood
"We continue with the preview video on student loans. It's hard to imagine how we could screw up higher education any more than we already have. But we're about to, if we make student loan forgiveness, a reality. There's a lot in phrase that helps explain why. The phrase is cui Bono, who benefits. In the case of student loan forgiveness, it's first and foremost, the colleges and universities who can charge outrageous tuition largely paid for by student loans. Second, politicians who make cheap promises of debt forgiveness to win votes. And third, students from upper middle class families who would get taxpayers to pay off their student debt, who doesn't benefit? Everyone else. That includes those who didn't go to college and a new class of suckers, people who went to college and paid off their student loans. Student loan forgiveness is reverse Robinhood. It takes from the poor and gives to the rich.

Beyonce's New Album Is Causing Controversy
"Her latest album is called renaissance. It's the first one she's released since lemonade. Remember that hoopla 6 years ago? It's causing quite a stir in the business. Remember she's saying in the Super Bowl? Oh my God. A lot of shit in the business now because of this album. A couple of singles were secretly released. I don't believe that for a second. I'm sure it was coordinated without her consent. Yeah, sure. She knew what was going on. Another pop star, kelis, and the police, my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and they're like, it's better than yours, right? That's kelis. Kelis went on Instagram to give Beyoncé some shit. 'cause her album has 16 tracks and it pays homage to dance music and she samples some iconic hits from Donna Summer and Robin S, Robin S recently said she was thrilled to have a work included. But now everybody's thrilled. Apparently, kelis is not thrilled because milkshake was incorporated to Beyoncé's album on the 5th track called energy. So now she's speaking out to claim that the song was used without her permission. And without getting too in the weeds, let me just say the production duo of Pharrell Williams because I'm happy and if you feel all right, Pharrell Williams and his partner Chad Hugo, they're known as the neptunes. They're listed as two riders of milkshake, which was released back in 2003, and kelis is credited as a sole performer. So she and the neptunes have a long and complicated history. We don't need to know that. They worked on a first three albums in 99, 2001, 2003. Who even knew, kelis has three albums. I didn't know. But either way, it's not my world. But according to new track credits for energy that you see on Spotify and Apple music, both Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo are listed among the numerous co writers on the song while kelis goes on mentioned. And despite not being listed in the song's credits, her involvement in renaissance was teased earlier last week after Beyoncé released an official track list naming the artists set to be sampled in each song and as a fan account on Instagram that put up the list, she repulsed the list of Beyoncé put out. And that got a response from kelis, who said that this was the first time she'd heard that her work was being used on Beyoncé's album. And she wrote in response to this fan, it's not a collaboration. It's theft. So right away, shots fired. And kelis went on to say, my mind is blown because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all three parties involved is astounding.
Previewing the Tuesday Primary Races
"We play cut number two? Let's play. I don't know which kind of thing. Cut number two from Brett bear last night when the round table with Molly Hemingway and Josh krosh are going on cut number two. It will certainly tell us a lot more about president Trump's full. There is a third Eric, by the way. Our friend Henry Gomez in Ohio went and found an Eric McIlroy on the ballots, and we're not sure he's out of it. But what Josh said is true, Eric Brighton will lose that. He's radioactive, credibly accused of rape persuasively accused of domestic violence against his wife and child. He's plummeting the polls, Eric Schmidt, and his successful AG. So the former president played that down the middle. He strong with white masters who's ahead, the Michigan governor's race. He is gone late for not Kevin rinky, who I thought he was going to go for. So we often throws a curve ball for people. But I think at the end of the day, it'll turn out to be something people still covet on the Republican side that Trump endorsement. Yeah. Yeah, so that was, yeah, if you're in Missouri today, go vote for Eric Schmidt. All right, go vote for Eric Schmidt. Go vote for Kevin ranke in Detroit. The Arizona primaries are today. I did not take a position in the Arizona Senate race to be Blake masters or Mark Bernabeu masters as it had, but it's not without a question. Carrie Lake against Karen Robin, Robson, and I believe Karen Robson is the better choice. But Kerry Lake and sheer neck and neck, primaries all over the place. Play
"robin" Discussed on Crime Junkie
"I wanted to bring on Delia because this week's episode. First of all, I mean, I just was talking to someone, but this week's episode especially I had to have someone to kind of dissect this with me because it is wild. But before that, I actually have a special message from someone that you all have been missing. Hi, cranky. It's spread. I just wanted to hop on here and say thank you for all of the love that you've shown me in these past couple months. It is truly proven to me that there is no community like the crime junkie community. You all are amazing. I'm feeling better. I'm healing. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to be ready to jump back into everything yet, but I mean you guys know how important it is to mean Ashley that these stories get out there every week. So again, thank you so much for supporting me and supporting the show while I've been focusing on getting stronger and getting healthy. Again, thank you so much and I love you guys. Keep sending Brit your well wishes everyone. Again, we're going to give her all the time she needs to heal the last thing we want to do is rush her back. But I echo what she said. Thank you all for the support while she has been out. Thank you for continuing to listen to the show. I know the episodes have just been a little bit different. The work we're still doing is so important though. But this is why I'm so excited to have Delia on today because this case is a doozy. It's a story about a teenage girl who got into a van in 1986 and was never seen again. Now, more than 35 years later, police are taking another look at her case, hoping to give her mother some long awaited answers and justice. This is the story of Susan Robin bender. It's Sunday, April 27th,
Tony Sirico Was Protective of Young Sopranos Actor Robert Iler
"Robin eiler is telling a story about how he was never messed with on the set. He said, but all this molesting stuff gets talked about. People always say to me, did anything ever happen like that to you on the set? And I'm like, you think Tony sorico was standing around, if there were people I made the wrong way, like, oh, rob looks really cute today. Tony RICO is just gonna stand there and do nothing. He just wants to be the second or third episode, Tony, come up to me and says, hey, listen to me. If anybody bothers you, anybody says anything like, you don't like, you tell your uncle Tony. You understand? That's how I, that's how I felt in school as well, he said. Like I was 13 years old and I was like, oh, this kid thinks he's gonna mouth off to me. I'll have Tony cereal come down. He said, no matter how old you are, you see somebody that has black hair on top and silver hair on the sides and just the way he always had a handkerchief in his pocket. And you go, you know what, this doable fuck anybody up. And that's the way Tony
Highland Park Shooter’s Father Sponsored Gun Permit Application
"In Illinois, the firearms identification card, he got his at 19, which means that his father had to sign and vouch for him. But he was not a danger. His dad really should be held accountable for that because there was at least two reports during that when he was 19. Were the family reported that he was a danger and he didn't press charges, but somebody like this kind of skirt that red flag law that Illinois has employees. That if he had those things, he wouldn't have gotten its legally. I mean, he probably expects he could find it. Otherwise. But his dad was running for mayor of highland park. And failed. A trumpeter Republican. I mean, Robin, this is why we gotta keep saying, we've got to have a blue tsunami and get assault weapons ban because we can not depend on people's judgment because in all of these cases it's bad, right? Generally the people around them, the parents, you name it. Or just in the general community of people that saw this stuff on social media, there's got to be a better reporting system and just, you know, a way to just, nobody should have a weapon of war. Nobody.
Howard Stern Is All Doom and Gloom About MCU Debut
"Busy. Howard Stern is, well, look, he's let it slip recently that he could be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a doctor doom movie. I don't care about these movies. I don't watch marvel stuff. So I don't really know who doctor doom is in the context of the comics. But during the commercials on his show the other day, how it left his microphone on so they say, while he talked to his producer, Gary Della bate, about possible guests to book for the show. And it's kind of difficulty here because the ads are playing over the conversation. But Howard tells Gary Della boate that he won't be able to talk much in the next few months and then his co host Robin Quivers wants to inquire about, well, what's going on with you over the summer? Why can't you talk much? And he says, well, I'm going to do doctor doom. Then he said, but believe me, I'm F and miserable about it. How is miss Mitchell about anything? And then he continued to share that he reached out to the marvel comic universe people. He reached out to the marvel vet, Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, junior for acting tips. And he asked Gary if he could get the number to the director, John favreau and get his contact information. Now maybe hours less than enthused about the mystery project because he's more focused on what he also said he's going to do. And that is to run for president in 2024. Because after the Supreme Court overturned roe V wade, Howard said on Monday last week that he wants to run for president to overturn all this bullshit. I know Howard. I've been in that studio over a hundred times when the show is off and running commercials. That's when Howard is really Howard. The guy you hear on the radio during the show and the old days, especially, really wasn't Howard. That was a character.
What Is Charlie's Take on Juneteenth?
"I saw that turning point USA is not having off as a federal holiday for Juneteenth. Why is that? What is your perspective on Juneteenth? So last year we came out pretty, let's just say publicly against the idea of making Juneteenth a federal holiday. And it's rather clever by the left, you have to admit, Juneteenth, as it is properly understood, of course, is something worthy of appreciation. It is the day the news of Emancipation reached Texas and that news started to spread. That is not at all what's going on here. Let's stop being naive. Let's stop looking at things as they tell them as they are and really what's going on here. What's really going on here is a BLM holiday to try to focus on alleged systemic racism to resurrect a propaganda campaign to try and focus on racial differences and to try and have a point of reference right before July 4th, by the way, intentionally summertime holiday. To have the worst people you could imagine, ibram X kendi being one of them. And Robin diangelo and Nicole Hannah Jones give them a day where they could become incredibly relevant to talk about, well, yeah, of course, Juneteenth was nice, but really we're more racist than ever. That's the exactly the wording they're going to use. It's like, oh yeah, whatever Juneteenth day that what's really going on is Juneteenth is the show that look at systemic racism and inequality and inequity. And some Republicans will say, oh, no, no, you know, Juneteenth is a conservative day because it's about the freeing of slaves. Of course, if we weren't talking about another political movement that wants us to try to have a federal holiday where they can corrupt the American flag done, Tempe Arizona, they took down all the American flags and put up BLM Juneteenth flags and then have an unnecessary unhelpful entire massive propaganda campaign that will be happening on TikTok on Twitter on Facebook on Instagram. All about how races are country is.
People Are Defecting From the Left in Record Numbers
"Then? The final phase is the desperation of the left realizing that they control, yes, the institutions, but they do not control the people, that the people are defecting from them in record numbers, that their games and their cutting of corners and their cheating will no longer be honored and them realizing that their ability to control us, their magical spell has faded. You see this as grassroots activists in candidates running for office, they just kind of shrug off attacks. This is happening right now in Arizona where Blake masters is being called a racist by the media and he's like, that's not what I said. I'm not a racist, and basically go take a hike. Other Republican candidates are trying to attack Blake masters here in Arizona by calling him a racist. And that is being super rejected by the conservative base. Where the conservative base is seeing other candidates attack Blake masters here in Arizona and they're like, no, actually don't act like a leftist. He's not a racist because he shared some Facebook article 12 years ago that had 25,000 words that you cherry pick one part of it and he didn't necessarily endorse it, like actually that's a scum like tactic. And it is. And so you're seeing this in every corner, you saw it when they tried to attack JD Vance. Like, oh, he's a racist. Nobody cared. Now let me be very clear. Conservatives actually have a radar for a legitimate racism. That's why we know Nicole Hannah Jones and Robin D'angelo and ibram X kendi and taha nishi coach. We know that they are racist. We know that. But we know that people on our side we referee racism and they don't. There's no place for it in the conservative movement. Doesn't exist. And yet on the other side, they're the ones that built entire political movements around it. And this kind of realization of how disingenuous dishonest and power hungry the left is has empowered us, but they are now going to respond with pure force.
Caller: The Perception of Protection Open-Carry Offers
"First of all, I just want to send my prayers and thoughts out to all the families that done this. But with what you guys have been talking about, yes, did it turn into? Okay, if you're going to go grab somebody, we have open carry in South Carolina. So with the gun being on my hip, no, I'm not going to say I'm not going to get robbed, but the person that's going to think about Robin is going to be deterred to do it because I have something open and then you can see. Well, that's the factor. That's the deterrent. But to the left, to Democrats, the deterrent, or the plague, the problem is somehow the gun lobby.

"Once through the preamble the surgeon checks around the room that everybody's ready, and one by one, they each respond. I do, too. Then there's the pinprick and you don't feel a thing after that. But you sure as hell, hear something. You hear the sound of your skull being soared. And you realize that you have a literal hole in your head. Well, you think. That's interesting. The sound gets louder and louder still. Although you've been pre briefed about this, it nonetheless reminds you of an onrushing subway train inside your head, and it's quite impressive. Then all at once it stops. After a moment or two the surgeon says that's it, I'm in. I can see your brain, Robin. Wow. I hear myself say, rather, idiotically. Wow. Wow. Is that the best I can manage? There's a minute or two, perhaps longer, where the giant machines and microsurgery cameras are maneuvered into place. You all right there, he asks illicitly. Oh yeah, I answer blithely. I'm fine. So far, brain surgery is making me banal. Then again, I'm not there to be witty. The truth is that I am absolutely awed. The surgeon checks the entire room again, and each person, anesthesiologist, pulmonologist, neurologist, and all their assistants response in turn. Then he says, okay, let's go in. And he starts counting..

"To women's media center live. I'm Robin Morgan. And do be warned I have terrible allergies this week. Nevertheless, I think we have a pretty damn strong show for you in celebration of black history month. Which, in itself, is as inane an idea as is women's history month, or native history month or any month, condescendingly acknowledging the existence of a group other than white men. European American males, who do not need to have a history month of their own, because they have, in fact, the entire bloody year. Anyway, let's make the most of what we've got for the moment, and celebrate by examining some different aspects. Like the way in which our society, women especially, have been taught to sanctify a particular gynecologist, who was literally a doctor Mengele, for black women. At the heart of today's episode, is the crucially important pape study out of the University of Chicago. Scrupulously researched, delineating who actually constitutes the far right in this country. It will shock you. It's a stunning lesson in four lesh. Which you may recall is a word I've coined to note the warnings we do not necessarily need. About what otherwise will shortly be visited upon us in our ignorance. Backlash. But before we explore any of that, we need.

"Women's media center live. I'm Robin Morgan. Well, the white supremacist terrorist far right, welcomed black history month, February, with more than a dozen historically black colleges and universities, having to report bomb threats Tuesday, marking the second consecutive day of threats at HBCU's nationwide, and prompting calls for federal law enforcement to investigate amid campus locked lockdowns. At least the FBI and the Justice Department now formally do consider such threats. And such acts as domestic terrorism. They didn't, for far too long. We, well, we persevere. We persevere because it simply is unthinkable. Not to. We persevere because others in our past have persevered and brought us this far at least. We persevere for our children, we persevere for ourselves, and for our refusal to tolerate injustice. This week our program is in keeping with our promise to deliver a series of episodes over this year, focusing on the deplorably enforced invisibility of Native American citizens and culture. This is the second of such programs. The first having dealt with the traditional culture, richness, and strengths that form the foundation underlying the very survival of these people. Today's episode features a lively discussion between crystal echohawk of the pawnee nation, and Rebecca nagle, Cherokee, more about both later. Discussing native presence or rather absence in media news and entertainment, and also addressing the ghastly appropriation of native creativity. But before any of that, we need to go inside the headlines. Let's do a little quiz. This.

"But today's podcast is to pause and take notice that this has been a not so easy year. Not that the year preceding it in the year preceding that didn't present their own challenges. And not to cease for one split second being grateful that he who shall not be named is no longer president of the United States, although he does remain a present and constant threat to our democracy, apparently as does his party, but no, no, no, no, no, Robin, you don't want to go off on that again. Instead, today's episode is to simply admit that this has been a hell of a year. And not in a good way. From Delta and the new Alma cron variants of COVID to the wrenching pullout from Afghanistan from the spineless seeding of the Republican Party to QAnon and from last January's insurrection to the Supreme Court decisions already showing themselves as fateful to women's reproductive freedom. Yeah, a hell of a year. Now, while I haven't exactly been pollyanna, optimistically cheering you on with a sort of buck up troops harangue, I haven't admitted the depth of my own periods of despair. They are real, and their devastating. But the truth is, you know, they change nothing. And if I don't somehow, try to turn both my despair and yours into fuel for fighting back, then there's really just no comfort at all. So this week's program is about comfort. May be not yet comfort and joy, but at least comfort, which is no small thing. That means admitting our vulnerabilities and dark places, and determining somehow to stagger back to our feet. So I'm going to fill today's episode with thoughts and readings about this season, with poems and with commentaries that range across different cultures and well tolerable belief systems, but also including among them aspects of Christmas per se that have to do with, well, comfort. So let's get started..

"Women's media centered live. I'm Robin Morgan. Quote, a quality of rights under the law. Shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. Period, that is the complete text of the equal rights amendment. It has a clause in there about the Congress should have the power to enforce it. And it has a clause saying this amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification. Ah. You wouldn't think it had taken over 50 years still counting to get women into the constitution. That is what we're going to explore today, not only what happened the first time around, in 1923, when the great Alice Paul, feminist lawyer and activist, tried to get it through. Or back then it was called the lucretia Mott amendment, or in 19 43, when she tried again. Or in the 70s, when we tried again. And it's going to come back at us. One more time. Once more with feeling Robin said growling so we're going to examine what happened to all those times before. And what we face now and what is really at stake. My special guest for the program is congresswoman, Carol and maloney, who has been a champion for women and women's rights and the equal rights amendment for years.

"Because in the end Facebook, Twitter, the platforms, YouTube, these are American companies, right? And you don't want to export the roll back of democracy. We're fighting hard enough to keep it here. You know that, of course, Facebook has been up before Congress and is squealing and being very Ely to try and escape regulations. But the tragedy, of course, is that this remarkable tool for communication has been, as you say, weaponized and made a tool of the right and of authoritarian governments. What do you see happening in the Philippines? Is there any way to press it or how can we who are outside of the Philippines be of support to you and your battle there? Because the Philippines is a Beacon of democracy in its own region and as you say, it's a harbinger of things to come. So we need to draw the line right there. I continue to appeal to the tech companies running their platforms to take action to be transparent to be accountable. What we're seeing in the Philippines and we're seeing this in other parts of the world is that free speech is being used as an excuse for posts that incite hate and violence and that's deployed against people like me against the journalists, activists, anyone perceived to be critical of government. So the excuse of free speech is stifling free speech. And, you know, what we're asking for. And I ask directly from Facebook, which is also a partner of ours. We ask that they take action. You know, when Mark Zuckerberg last week said that it could take 5 to ten years to solve this problem in the global south, that isn't acceptable because in our country, people are dying. Yes. So our appeal is, please, you know, these are American companies. Their partners of ours. I know that they created something new, but it's very clear that by 2015 when they brought new groups in to something they called instant articles. Facebook became the world's largest distributor of new. And I think it needs to take responsibility for what that means. Well, you know, they're in denial, of course, about that. Because if they were to take the responsibility, that's a whole other ball game, so they'd rather say, no, no, we're just a platform for communication in people to do what they want. But we're fighting hard here to make sure that there is some responsibility. How that will actually play out. I don't know. Say a word or two, Maria while I have you. Excuse me, I have a dead frog in my throat. Well, I have you about one of the things that got you in hot water was the expose you did of an entrepreneur named Kang in the Philippines who was, you know, in with a with a Duterte crowd and had been involved in human trafficking, and that you got slammed for cyber libel. It's amazing how they project what they are actually doing onto us, and claim that we're the ones who are doing it. It's a complete hall of mirrors. But, you know, you know what's funny about that particular case is that the story came out before the law was passed, so the law of cyber libel was passed after that story came out. So you can't actually use a law retroactively. No. And the national view of investigation, our version, our FBI, the legal department, actually said that, you know, they attach that in the subpoena that they sent us, and yet, despite that, it was moved forward and given to the Department of Justice in a potential criminal case, we're in the middle of fighting that. I can't say much more than what's already been said because of rules of subsidies. But the cases we are fighting are political in nature. It is meant to silence our reporting. We are not against this administration nor are we taking any position other than that of journaling. Our role protected by the constitution to hold our governments accountable. And I think the biggest problem is that these checks and balances in the Philippines have eroded significantly in the last year and a half. And, you know, standing up now, Robin, I don't have much of a choice. Rappler is a startup. We hit positive ebitda in our 5th year and we were doing well until our government disliked our reporting. So we'll continue to hold the line. Hold the line, used to is wrap blue still is functioning as an online site. Or have they absolutely they have not shut it down? No. Although the decision is along as we're fighting it in court, as long as the legal process continues the government, we're still we continue reporting. And we struggle very hard to make sure that our reporting is not affected by the government attacks. And you know that brings its own problems with it, right? Of course. So you are back. Your best is very good, indeed, Maria, my heart goes out to you and my support. And we'll all our listeners will sign on to that site and do whatever we can to support it and keep it going. And please don't hesitate to call on us if there's any service that we can be to you as a woman as a journalist as a fighter for free speech. For my heart, salama. Thank you so much Robin and thank you for picking up the story and we're at WWW dot rattler dot com. We're going to fight the battle. We love your support. Thank you. Time for our last break, but.

"Like i'll give you an example when the pandemic i started it was the friday of and my girlfriend are walking downtown. Everything is shutdown. There's no cars. My girlfriend looks at me. she goes. This is gonna leave a scar in this country. And i said it'll be over by easter. I was like trump. that'd be over into 'cause i'm optimistic. You know you do that. I'm sure where the toilet paper but yes so. I think it's like that optimism. I love and i hate it. But i'm glad i have any vowel. Said this to me yesterday. We we go through long periods where we go now deep thoughts we take breaks but every once in a while. We'll talk about well. Most of the time we talk about things she was talking about. How fear is love to because fear is just trying to keep you alive. it's similar to the. Don't do that do something okay you it's like when you just listen to the pitch of the voice in your head it's just scary and jarring but what's behind anxiety i and what's behind fear. It's like let's keep this thing. Say i really want to talk about fear for a second. We're running out because this is why people ask me like like i post so much absurd. Shit i post so many things that might get in trouble. And i've been asked like how. Are you not afraid to do that. I'm like are you kidding me. I am afraid all all. I am afraid. I'm afraid all the time. And all i did was i stopped trying to find a cure for fear and i just started learning how to cope with it. And what i really did it was. I stopped being afraid of feeling. Fear that once you stop being afraid of feeling fear any and you just realize that fears that thing that you feel sometimes and then you can kind of turn it into excitement or you can let fear go. I'm really afraid right now. So my buddy is gonna shut down. I'm going to barf whatever. Just let your body do that. Don't judge it. You know what you will survive this fear and so. I think it's like knowing that you will be okay whether or not you're scared. And that the worst thing that can happen you'll still be okay after that and the thing that happens is you die on your dad and you don't have to experience the pain anymore so another until like whatever you do like worrying to me is like it's called magical thinking it's like a superstition. Where if i stop. If i stop worrying everything bad will happen just for laughs is an example of kinky warded off by thinking obsessively so just for laughs was the first time in my life where i was nervous because i knew i was going to do well every other time in my life. I'm like i'm gonna bomb. I knew it was going to do well. And i'm like you're going to do well and then your life is going to change drastically because of it and it's going to be really scary so like my first house self sabotage the state. This is going to be too much. But i knew i wasn't do well. I did do well so it wasn't like this proves that like staying insecure as a safety net doesn't actually work. that's right. You can be confident. You can't accept love. Nothing bad will happen. You would just feel really icky for awhile. You'll feel gross. You'll feel afraid you'll feel like i don't deserve this and whatever just like yourself all those things it doesn't mean they're true and then just move on and he's kind of move on his part of it. I just wrote that down last night. It was like fear is part of it like you said taking mushrooms. You know how much boy it'd be great to not be afraid. And then whenever i'm on mushrooms like fear is sort of the kindling lights the fire that makes the fun. Yes if you weren't a little afraid of the experience you wouldn't have a good time and that's true of life. I think that your fear and excitement like i've heard they were like indices family. It's just the way you perceive them. Excitement is fear without. Excitement is fear with breath statement without breath. Existential king just for laughs. I remember i. I was so i was so snappy when i got in and it's because i was afraid of feeling excited about it so i was trying to talk my way out of it and i started getting like i don't want to do because whatever then someone was nervous. Didn't you almost not go or something like you. Just for a second you thought in my brain i'm like what have i cancelled. And then i'll be like the hero that didn't go to my brain and then someone had to be like you're just nervous. I'm like i'm not nervous too nervous. You're nervous because it might go well. And i'm like okay. You know what. I'm just nervous and afraid then since i let myself feel that thing that i was able to be excited about it and let myself get excited is really is really scary to let yourself be excited about something because you're afraid you'll feel stupid if it goes wrong but then i learned over time like well. If you're not excited that you didn't get to enjoy it at all. So what did that really get you. Anyone that's great. You'll still be disappointed if you think that it's gonna go if it's going to you think it's gonna go bad. It does go bad. You're not going to be like well. I knew that was going to happen. You're still going to be bummed out. Yeah that's right right. You let yourself feel stupid. Who cared. that's right. Just live your life. That's what jad appetite when we were working together. He would say that i'd be like excited about The second season getting picked but it hadn't been picked up be excited because even if it isn't at least you've got to be excited at least got. That's that's how i'm living my life. Now it's clear and by the way this the last three weeks have been like. This is the greatest three weeks of my entire life. Yeah this is. I is the climax was podcast There's five guys wasn't the three weeks it was like it's been like it's funny because i i'm not surprised that had happened but i'm surprised at how it feels you know because i think i learned a wellness center. You're going to be surprised at how something feels because until you feel that you're not going to know what it feels like. That blew my mind because you always try to prepare yourself for how it's going to feel so people ask me like. Are you surprised. It's like i mean. Part of me always knew i was going to make it so. I didn't know that i would have quit and i always want to tell my friends. It's like you're afraid that you know you're good enough for this free to accept it. And i get it. You got to get over the hurdle you know. Nelson mandela believe. Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our greatest fears powerful. That's i got goosebumps. Stole it from him actually.

I'm just going to get right to it. You know how it goes. Robin arrived at finsbury field. The next day to see eight hundred. Archers king henry road in on a white horse took a seat next to queen. Eleanor both of them. On purple thrones. The king looked on the ranks warmly and the shooting got started. They weren't ten groups of eighty and the best three would compete against each other. See who was the best in each group. Which would compete against each other for the price of ninety pounds. A silver bugle and a quiver of gold tipped arrows. Second prize was one hundred bucks. And that's not how it's meant today was literally one hundred bucks from the king's fields but you had to go out and get them yourself by killing them. Third prize was two tons of wine. Which is kind of misleading. Because that's t. u. n. ton too large casks of wine not two tons t o n s though one is about eight and a third pounds per gallon and a t u. n. Ton contains two hundred and fifty six gallons. So at five hundred. Twelve gallons to t- un tons are pretty much to t. o. n. Tons of wine. Let's move on. The man shot the expected nights. One everything was buttoned up. And as some peasants tried to figure out how to load to metric tons of wine onto a wagon queen. Eleanor turned to king henry. So did he think that those nights out there were the best. Archers and all of mary england the king said yes they literally just had a competition to decide exactly that the queen smirked the king. Turn what the queen shrug. Oh nothing just. What would he say if she found archers that could match his for better his what would he bet. The king said Sure he would throw in ten more tons of wine. Ten tons of aol and four hundred bows to anyone who could beat his best right here. Right now and pardons the queen asked the king said. That's pretty specific but sure. If someone could shoot better than his guys he would pardon them for any crimes they committed for forty days. Now it's weird that he worded at like that basically he's reserving the right to go after someone again for crimes committed in the past at the end of forty days but what he said it sounds like he's encouraging people to commit crimes for forty days. I thought more people would step forward at the prospect of twenty metric tons of alcohol and the ability to do like a purge thing for the next month but when the king looked down on the crowd only three emerged into the field robin little john and will scarlet the bishops. Face blanched mcqueen smiled. Robin hood said that he and his two companions would take that bet and they did like. I said we don't need to go into it. Because robin jumping into archery competitions and sweeping the whole thing with his mary brand of panache is like a trope unto itself. I mean he did so well that he all but split an arrow with another aero john and will didn't do as well as robin though whenever does but they did well enough to unseat the second and third place winners. The goal the wine the deer a lot more wine ale and bows robin and his crew took it. All they also took the pardons which is good because now all the king's nights knew who they were still robin knew how to work a crowd. He stood atop the massive tun of wine that had been rolled out and announced that he didn't need any of this. The prices would go to the men who won them initially and the rest of the wine ale and bows well. There were eight hundred thirsty. Archers here the grumble of the archers instantly exploded into cheers as they collectively decided that this robin guy he was all right. All it took was two thousand gallons of free drinks robin. Tuck the horn away. Something to remember this event by and step down amongst the backslapping and smiles to see little john will scarlet and allendale. They were livid. What were you going to take delivery of the wine in our hideout robbins. Said besides they already shot as many of the king's dear as they wanted also robin pointed to the king who had the bishop of here furred whispering into his ear. Jig was up time to go john wine. That the king promised weep purge pardons yes and a man who has never experienced consequences for anything and has his every whim. Granted immediately would never go back on his word just because he feels like it. Robin said john said okay. Yeah that tracks short to be a jerk about it. Let's go.
