I have Kyle Brandt coming on Monday's podcast. I'm just gonna tell you the movie now because it is gonna be the best moment of your weekend if you spent two hours watching this classic. We're doing Toy Soldiers. It really brings everything possible to the table. So if you wanna watch it ahead of time, there it is. That podcast is going up Monday night. If you wanna hear stuff about the debate, we have Tara Paul and Mary's podcast, Somebody's Gotta Win. That reacted to it as well as the press box with Brian Curtis and David Shoemaker. So there you go. Our debate coverage has been on point. Also, higher learning. Van and Rachel had Larry Elder on this weekend. It made a lot of noise, man. That podcast is great. I hope you check that out as well. Hope you're checking out theringer .com. And on this podcast, gonna talk about the dame trade at the top. We're gonna bring in Ben Thompson from the Techery newsletter, which he's been on this podcast I think four weeks ago. And he's a huge Bucks fan. He's gonna give the Bucks fan side of things. We're gonna do million dollar picks. And then old friend Seth Meyers talking about a whole bunch of stuff. So really good podcast. It's all next. First, our friends from Pro Jam. What's up? All right, I'm taping this on Thursday afternoon. Normally when there's a big MBA trade, I always do the emergency trade reaction right after the podcast. But we just put up a podcast on Tuesday. So I decided to play it a little differently this time. I wanted a little distance, I wanted to listen to stuff, read stuff, and try to form some big picture opinions coming out of this. So I have four smaller ones, then one big one. First one, I thought Portland did an incredible job with this trade. I really liked this trade, especially everyone was trying to bully them in June and July about, oh, you got to take Miami's offer. You just got to. It's where he wants to go. It's the only offer you're going to get. And guess what? They waited. They played it perfectly. They stared Miami down, and they got a much better deal. First of all, they get the Drew Holiday piece that they can flip into a bunch out of their stuff, which we'll talk about in one second. I love the DeAndre Ayton gamble. As you know, on this podcast, I am a big DeAndre Ayton guy. Not in the sense of I'm the biggest fan of his in the world, but I'm a fan of the asset. I just think I love the valued assets, no matter what it is. Whatever market we're talking about, DeAndre Ayton, 18 and 10 for his career, 60 % field goals percentage, 25 years old. He's played in 45 playoff games. He played four rounds in the 2021 finals. Last year, he got his ass kicked by Jokic. Oh, sorry. Like, that never happens. And Phoenix just sold on him, which I can't wait to talk about. But just from a Portland standpoint, they not only get Ayton in whatever they get for holiday, they get the 29 first, they get the two swaps, and they dump Nurkic. Nurkic hasn't had a healthy start to finish all the way through the playoffs here since 2018, which I'm positive was a long time ago. He's basically 12 and 8. He's, you know, a 50 % shooter. I made a list of the top 30 centers. I encourage you to do this at home, because what's more fun than making lists of NBA centers? I can't imagine anything. I made a list of who I thought were the best assets of the center position for talent, contract, everything. He was 29th on my list. The only person I had ahead of him who's technically a starter, unless you start talking about the Detroit or Charlotte guys, was Zubats on the Clippers. I thought he was the 29th best center asset in the league. And Phoenix, you know, just quickly to go to them, they're trying to win this year. They got worse. They turned Ayton's money into Nurkic and Grayson Allen and Nasir Little. Grayson Allen, we already know with him, he can't play in playoff series. We saw him 22. We saw it last year. I heard and read in some places like that, I got two rotation players. Did they? Is Nurkic a playoff rotation player? Is Grayson Allen a playoff rotation player? Because I'm positive he's not. So for the same money that they were spending on Ayton, they got three guys that I don't think are going to help them. In 25, the money comes down a little bit to 23 million just for Nurkic and Little, which is 7 million less than Ayton. And then in 26, that money goes up to 25 .5. But I don't understand what Phoenix was doing. Why not wait to see if Ayton clicks with Vogel? Vogel has such a good history with centers. He rejuvenated Dwight Howard on the 2020 Lakers. He basically created Roy Hibbert's career in 2013 with the defense verticality thing. I thought he was going to do a good job with Ayton. I'm stunned that they gave up on him. I'm almost waiting for one of those, now they tell us stories when, you know, that's where Brian Curtis calls them, where like a week after something happens, there's this kind of notebook dump where it's like, here's seven terrible DeAndre Ayton stories. So maybe that'll happen. But for Phoenix just to be like, cool, we locked this down, man. We got Nurkic. You're trying to win the title. You have KD and Booker and Beal. And like, what are you guys doing? Anyway, from Portland's standpoint, I love the Ayton thing. I love that they didn't get bullied. And I know they're going to turn Drew Holliday into something. So this to me was at least an A minus for them, for where they were two months ago, where Dave's like, I want to go to Miami. That's it. And if you don't trade me there, that's kind of fucked up. And they made this work as it got reported that, uh, I think in the athletic, that he expanded his list to Brooklyn and to Milwaukee in the last two weeks. And that's what Portland was waiting on. You know, they were banking on the fact that he's a competitive dude. He's one of the best 75 pairs ever. He wanted a situation settled. So, you know, you wait, you wait, you wait, they expand the list and then you go. Uh, there's a Drew Holliday piece to this. That's awesome. He becomes a contender prize. I wouldn't call this a Drew Holliday sweepstakes. I reserved sweepstakes for the superstars, but it's a mini sweepstakes. This is somebody that could have a huge impact on the playoff race. You know, not only the usual suspects, everybody's talking about Boston, ironically, Miami is a really good fit for him. And in some ways, um, I'm a little more scared of them with Miami than Dame in some ways, especially at a much cheaper contract with giving up less and keeping some of their assets. Philly, if they could pull it off, they have to be in there in Golden State, Minnesota. I think I have to mention Sacramento, I think is a team that if they could figure out how to get Drew without giving up their core, which is basically Keegan Murray and Sabonis and Fox, like that's, you know, could Davion Mitchell be in that trade with some, with a salary and some picks, who knows. The team that I love for Drew Holliday is OKC. I have OKC, you know, I started doing my MBA research for the over -under spot and I haven't landed on a number for them yet, but to me, they feel like a high forties team with Chet and with the growth of their young guys. And if you just like, let's say they traded Lou Dort and a bunch of their picks, maybe two firsts and two of their lesser picks or three firsts and a second, whatever it is. And they just say, fuck it. And they get Drew and you put him with Giddy and SGA and Jalen fucking awesome Williams and Chet Holmgren and all these other dudes they have, that might be a top three team in the West. I mean, that, that's starting to give me some early 2010s OKC vibes. So where he goes is going to be important. I just feel like there was so much Drew Holliday slander the last couple of days. You know, he's one of my favorite players. Even Haralabob, who was the chairman of the board of the Drew Holliday fan club for years and would have the benefit dinners there and, you know, just did a lot of yeoman's work on that front. And even he was like, yeah, yeah, Dame's better than Drew. That trade makes sense for Milwaukee. I was hurt, Haralabob. I was 100 % hurt by that. But you know, Drew got his ass kicked by Jimmy Butler in the playoffs last year. I get it. It happens. Jimmy was unbelievable. I feel like he would have kicked anybody's ass. By the way, why is Drew Holliday guarding Jimmy Butler? That speaks more to some of the issues with Milwaukee. He was never supposed to be a point guard and a creator. I think he was always better as an off -the -ball guy. We saw that with Rondo and New Orleans and just in general. I want to see him with a point guard. I want to see him just being unleashed, not having the ball a lot, just worrying about hitting threes, being an occasional, you know, make -shit -happen guy and being like the third or fourth best guy on a team without having the offensive responsibility to have. All their half court issues got blamed on him for the last couple of years. And I get it. They weren't like an awesome half -court team, even the other one in the finals, but I really value that dude. I had him, even I did the trade value list in August and I had him 37th and I had Dame 23rd. I think he's one of the best 30 players in the league still. He's 33 years old, which, you know, I'm going to talk in a second about when guards hit their mid -30s, but just in general, I think he's a real asset. If he goes to a team like the Celtics and they can keep Derek White and Tatum and Brown in the center, it's like, look out, man. So little mini sweepstakes, rarely do we get the trade, but then we still get another asset to talk about. Thank you for everyone involved in the trade. And then the fourth small point is just that, you know, not rocket science, Milwaukee bought some Giannis time here. They have one of the best 20 players of all time. They were staring down the barrel of a situation that was not good. I was talking about it on this podcast in late June and early July. I thought he was going to put them on the clock. I thought Mark Lasry selling his stake was a really bad sign for all of this because that dude is smart. As I laid out in June, that guy is really smart. And if he's feeling like, you know what, it's time for me to sell my buck stock, that makes me nervous. And then all the stuff that Giannis said and did, which I thought he did really fairly and really smartly. And I think that dude's about titles and that's it. And I know we say that about players, but I think in his case, I don't think he cares about, you know, what's my legacy, how do I compare against Dirk DeWhisky, any of that stuff. I just think he wants more rings. I mean, think about the guys who have won two rings out of the best 35 guys on my list of my pyramid. Those are all guys in my top 35 that won multiple wings. You go to the one -ring side, Jerry West, Oscar, Moses, Dirk, Jokic, Giannis, Pettit, Garnett, Kawhi, Rick Barry. That's the list he's on now. I certainly don't think he's looking at that list going, I got to get away from these guys, but it's a slightly different list. I think when you win multiple rings in multiple situations, it elevates you in a certain way. I think he fundamentally understands that at least a little bit. I want to be the best player since LeBron James. I think that's a thing that he wants. How am I going to do that? I need more rings. I need more finals trips. He knew from last year and maybe even the Boston series that they just weren't good enough. Whether this trade is going to be the thing that propels them, we'll find out, but he's been in the league 10 years, two MVPs, five first teams, two second teams, and now we have this little two -year window. Kawhi and the Raptors was a one -year window. This is a two -year window, I feel like. With Giannis, he's got two years left in his deals. So does Lopez. Middleton has two in a player option. Dame's got two, and then this crazy $120 million player option extension thingy that he has that just keeps going and going. It's probably two years. There's a world where this could go terribly this season, at least for what the expectations are, and then maybe it becomes Kawhi, Raptors. Maybe Giannis is like, you know what? That didn't work. Trade me. And the Bucks, who have no picks left and no future, they look at it next summer, and they go, all right. We tried it. Giannis, what can we get for you? Dame, what can we get? And they just do a reboot, rehaul. Remember, they won in 2021, which just takes so much pressure out of this. It's so much different than the Clippers situation, where they went all in on Kawhi and Paul George. They give up all those picks and SGA, and they've gotten nothing out of it. They haven't even made the finals. So it's got to happen. I think they at least probably have to make the finals. If they get bounced in round two, do I think Giannis is going to stay because they made this Dame -Mower trade? Probably not. So that leads to the big question, is how good of a trade was this? So there's a big picture angle on Dame, and it's going to sound negative, but I really don't want it to sound negative because I think Dame, I voted for him for NBA Top 75. I think he's been one of the best guards in the last 15 years. I think there's a ton of great things you can say, and there's a chance that he goes to Milwaukee, and this thing is fucking awesome. I know any Celtic fan I've talked to, including Isaiah, who's helping produce this podcast today, the Giannis -Dame pick and roll is just terrifying. Other than Jokic and Murray, it's going to be the single most unstoppable offensive play in the league. It is. We are conceding that point. The spot Dame is in right now, big picture -wise, it's weird. He's a superstar, but he's not, and we've seen guys like this before. I judge superstars by, do you have the resume statistically, and is your team succeeding consistently at a certain level? You can't totally say that about Dame. He's never been on a 55 -win team. He's missed the playoffs completely four times in 11 years. He said three first -round exits. He made the Final Four once in 2019, which was really lucky because Golden State and Houston were the two best teams, and then they got smoked. He's never been on a true contender ever. Instinctively, you go, well, that's not his fault. Who's he played with? Well, he played with LaMarcus Aldridge and CJ McCollum and a couple other guys, but not really anybody. The reason I'm putting this up is there's a success element that he has not had yet that for somebody with his resume is actually kind of unusual. I went and I looked up how many guards in the history of the league averaged 22 points a game for their career and played at least 700 games. I thought the list would be like 20. I didn't know. I didn't know what I was walking into. Only I think 75 guys have averaged 22 a game. So I went and I looked up the list, and it was 10 guys, 700 games, 22 a game for their career. There were some guys who came close like David Thompson, who I think is one of the best guards I've seen in the last 45 years, but had a short career and had some drug issues. He didn't make it. He didn't play enough games. Pete Maravich, 24 .2 points a game, but he didn't play enough games. Kyrie hasn't played enough games yet. Bradley Beale is five games away. I'm actually kind of glad the cutoff's at 700 so we don't have to talk about him. And then Mitchell and Trey Young aren't there yet. There's only 10 guys that made it, and the 10 guys are all fucking awesome. And again, I mentioned this in the context of Dame, who we think he is versus the success he's had. So the 10 guys, Michael Jordan, 30 .1, Jerry West, 27 .1, Allen Averson, 26 .7, George Gervin, 26 .2, Oscar Robertson, 25 .7, Kobe, 25 .0, Harden, 24 .7, Curry, 24 .6, Wade, 22, barely made it, and Russ, 22 .4, and then Dame is at 25 again. All right, what does he not have that those other guys have? Well, MJ, don't need to talk about him. Don't need to talk about Jerry West, who's the freaking logo. Allen Averson, pretty good comparison, right? Big stats, really memorable player, but not a ton of success. Here's the difference. Averson made the finals once. He won an MVP. Dame has done neither of those things. George Gervin was the best scoring guard of the 70s. He made two final fours. He had some bad luck. He really, in 79, really should have came close. And some of it's on him, right? He could have come through. Bobby Dandridge is the one that ended up coming through for the Bullets. They lose. But two final fours, he had four top five MVP finishes, five first teams, four second teams. He was just unassailably the best guard in the league until MJ. Oscar Robertson, don't need to go through him, but he won a ring and an MVP. Kobe, five rings and an MVP. Eleven first teams for Kobe, by the way. James Harden, three final fours, an MVP, six top five MVP finishes, six first team MBAs. And even though Harden has never made the finals as the best guy, he made it with OKC as the sixth man, you could build a contender around Harden. We saw it. We haven't really seen it with Dame. I think that's a fair thing to bring up. Curry, four rings, two MVPs, you know, the Curry thing. Dwayne Wade, three rings, two top five MVPs, two first teams, three second teams. He's more in the Dame waters a little bit, but he had the 2006 finals and he was the second best guy with LeBron on those heat teams. And then Westbrook, who you would say, well, Dame had a better career than Westbrook. Did he? Westbrook made the finals in 2012. He was second best guy on that team. Almost made the finals in 2016. He won an MVP. He had two first teams and five second teams. It's at least like a real argument. And I think when you look at Dame, he only had that one 2019 round three, got bounced. He's only had one top five MVP finish. He's only had one first team MBA and four second team MBAs. Really, really good top 75 career. But the piece that's missing is, have you been on a really good team? Have you made a real run at it? Which is why, you know, I think this Milwaukee trade is so much fun. This is his real chance. I get nervous about a couple things with this trade. One is that, you know, if you look at the 33 and older guards who average 22 points a game in a season. Jordan did it twice. Curry did it twice. Still going. Kobe did it three times. Jerry West twice. Sam Jones once. Hal Greer once. That's the entire list. Now the NBA is different. We have more three -pointers now. It's easier to score. Scoring is the easiest it's ever been. Guys can play at a longer age. So I'm not ruling out Dane being good for the next three years. But just pointing out, history is saying, be a little nervous. In general with guards, like Chris Paul, we saw from age 35 to 36 to 37, like it just dropped. But that's two years older than Dane. Maybe it's fine. I just worry about guards. We have not a lot of instances with guards in their mid -30s of them either peaking as players or being able to sustain whatever success they had during their prime. It always starts to go down with really no exceptions, except for Steph Curry. He's the only non -exception. So if your case is Dane's as good as Steph Curry, or Dane can be as potent as Steph Curry on a winning team, like, you know, Steph Curry is better than Dane, but I'm not going to argue that he couldn't do a lot of the stuff that Curry did in Golden State. The bigger issue for me, the age I'm definitely worried about. Dane has not been healthy the last couple of years, and we have not seen him play nine straight months at playoff basketball with a big bullseye on his back. Everybody coming after you, you're the best team. We haven't seen him do that ever, much less than the last couple of seasons. So can he stay up? Can he stay healthy? That's one thing. The defense with Dane just got kind of swept under the rug the last couple days, and I don't really understand it because there's five categories of defensive player I feel like. There's excellent, there's good, there's average, there's not so good, and then there's bad. And I think Dane's a bad defender. I think the stats back it up. Like, his defensive rating last year was 245 out of the guards. He's the 245th guard for defensive rating. You know, 117 .4 individual defensive rating is 483 overall. Portland's team's always defensively, it was the Achilles heel for them. Partly because of Dane, because he couldn't guard anybody. He's too small. And, you know, think about what we saw from the playoffs the last couple years. I think about the 2020 bubble Celtics playoffs, not infrequently, because I think that team had a chance to potentially win a title. What happened? Everyone hunted Kemba Walker. It was hunting season. It's like, where is he? Got to get a switch. Got to get Kemba Walker guarding somebody who's bigger, or got to beat him off the dribble, and it just became a hunt session with him. And basically, he got played out of the league. He's not in the league anymore. You know, we had this with Isaiah Thomas, too, in the mid -2010s. I think it's been an issue with Kyrie Irving. The Celtics certainly went at him in the playoff series with Brooklyn a couple years ago. Curry, you saw, who I think is a better defender than people give him credit for, but the And he's a much better defender than Dame is. Jordan Poole is somebody that got hunted in playoff series recently. Chris Paul, obviously, is a big one. Jalen Brunson, remember what the Heat did to him? Mitchell, when he was on Utah, this was a huge issue. And then Trae Young, obviously. My fear with Dame is he's a DH, and I think in Portland, part of the reasons he was able to put up the stats he did was because he wasn't playing defense, right? It was just, how many points can I score? My team isn't very good, and I'm just going to do my thing. He's an incredible offensive player. But how much of a trade -off is the defense, right? Well, you think, all right, well, Milwaukee, they're really good defensively. They'll be able to protect him. Here's the team. Giannis, Dame, Lopez, Portis, Middleton, Conaton, Beauchamp, Crowder. Who's guarding Trae Young on this team? Who's guarding Jason Tatum? Here's a partial list of guys that I don't think this team will be able to guard this season. Devin Booker, Tatum, Butler, Trae Young, Kyrie, Curry. Who's going to be chasing Curry around the screens? Dame lowered? Good luck. SGA, Luca, Mitchell, Murray, Edwards, Brunson, Ja, Garland, Fox, Halburn. Are they going to be able to cover Derek White? I don't know. The way this team is constructed, they are not going to have the ability to guard other guards at all, which means they're just going to have to be in a shooting match with them, right? It's going to be not much different than what's going to happen with Phoenix, where they're just literally going to have to outscore the other team. I've just watched too much playoff basketball over the last couple years, where it's like, if you have that weak link on defense, and you're playing a team that's smart enough, they're going to go after that weak link. Like, think about them against the Lakers, right? The Lakers figure their crunch time. Let's say they make the finals. It's Milwaukee and the Lakers, and Lakers crunch time. They're going to have LeBron and Davis and Austin Reeves and, I don't know, a shooter and a point guard, whatever. All they're going to be doing is trying to find where Dame is on the court and going after him. What about when they play Boston? Boston puts out White and Brogdon and Tatum and Brown and a center, and all they're going to be doing is trying to make sure Dame is covering somebody who has the ball who's now torturing him. I think it's a real problem for them. And what's funny is they gave up Drew's defense and, you know, they, what they gave up on defense, which is significant, and they gained an offense, it might end up just being a wash and they might just be a different version of the same team where they still have a huge flaw. It's just on the other end of the court. I'm just shocked that nobody brought up the defense. I agree he's an amazing offensive player and what's cool about this trade and what I'm excited about as a basketball fan is, can he go up a level? Right? A lot of these stats he put up, especially the last couple years. They didn't mean anything. They were, he was on bad teams. Like, who cares? Ultimately, Bradley Beal scored 30 points a game on the Wizards. Who cares? I think most really good offensive players, if they're on a bad team, can get between 25 and 30 a night. Can you do it nine months in a row? Can you do it when you're getting hunted on defense all over the place? How much can Milwaukee protect him? And what does he have in the tank at age 33 with 900 plus games on the O 'Dominor already? I'm still afraid of the Bucks, but people have, like, FanDuel had them as best odds in basketball and I think most people feel like they're the favorite now. I don't feel like there's a favorite. I think you can go through every team. Boston, I could, I'm scared of Porzingis. What's going to happen with Jalen Brown out there? He has contracts. Can Peyton Pritchard, all these different things. Philly, God only knows. Miami, they're unquestionably worse. Yeah, Milwaukee is going to be really good, but depending where Holiday lands and how this all plays out, I just think it's still wide open. And the other piece, so if you're just talking Boston, Miami, Tatum kills Milwaukee. I have no idea why. Boston is kind of built to at least stay with Dame and, you know, Derek White is about as good of a person you're going to have to try to keep Dame in check, at least. And Boston's done a really good job of guarding Giannis over the years. They don't have Grant Williams this year, but I just don't think, I think there's as many ways this goes wrong as it goes right, I guess would be my final thought on this because for what they gave up, especially with that 29 unprotected and the two swaps and, you know, they are all in on this team. And you know my theory, when you go all in on a team, you better think you can win. Not positive, but it's an awesome trade. It really is. It makes the league so much more fun. Dame and Giannis together. I'm going to enjoy watching Portland. I still have my eating stock. Watching Phoenix fans slowly realize that Derkiszna isn't the answer is going to be fun and then we'll see where Drew Holliday goes. So really fun trade. We're going to talk about it a little bit more with Die Hard Bucks fan, Ben Thompson in one second. Let's take a break.

Fresh update on "russ" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News

"Improvement project is about to start along heavily As WTOP's Sandi Kozel reports in her series, Living with Road Repair, some business owners fear construction may affect their customers getting to the business. Noise and dirt E -tours, lane and sidewalk closures, turn restrictions, relocated bus stops. It's what folks along Columbia Pike have been enduring for years with segment upgrades. Pike is still torn up around George Mason Drive, where Robert Russ works at the Columbia Pike Thrift Shop. Traffic cones or equipment are out there so you can hardly get even into the street.

The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture celebrated a huge milestone today. It welcomed its 10 millionth in -person visitor. Museum has been popular very since it opened in 2016. It features several exhibits and a collection of more than 42 ,000 important related items to African American life, history and culture.

Donald Trump Won the Second GOP Debate Without Even Being There

"A reason that most listeners voted for Benny Hill as the appropriate theme song for last night's debate, and it was bad. If you didn't watch it, you didn't miss anything. You really didn't. You want to hear a taste of it? You want to see a little bit of it? You want to get a check out? Let's just pull, oh, I don't know, kind of a random 46 -second clip from last night's debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in California. You will give me three times the deduction in income tax, then I will look at your gas tax, which is why it didn't happen. Exactly, Russ. Secondly, on the $50 million— Here is a nice part. Secondly, on the homework 10 because Obama bought those curtains. Did you send them back? It's in the press. Did you send them back? It's the State Department. Did you send them back? You're the one that works in Congress. That wasn't my question. You get it done. You hung them on your curtains. They were there before I even showed up at the residence. You are scrapping. Here's a fact. Here's a fact, though. You wanted a gas tax increase, and then you wanted a state government. We have not begun to go ahead like this. In fact, we're about to take a commercial break. Yep, that's your debate. Uh -huh. Yeah, tell me some more about the productive process that we're witnessing. My gosh. Somebody else has texted, maybe the best theme would be Mission Impossible. Well, yeah, that's what those seven candidates are facing right now, an impossible task of trying to upend President Donald J. Trump.

Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job. Building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Joining us now is Russ Vogt, president of the Center for Renewing America. It is September 26th. The shutdown is looming on September 30th. Russ, thank you for joining us. We've had a lot of congressmen on the program, some great guys, Congressman Dan Bishop, Matt Gaetz, we've had Chip Roy. But I'll be honest, it is a Chinese fire drill. It is disorganized. You have people on every single side. I was on the phone this morning. No one knows what the heck is going on. So Russ, what are you hearing? What can we expect coming to September 30th? Do you think the government's going to shut down? I do think it's going to shut down. I think that's where we are. And I think it's good because this is the last leverage point we have against the Biden administration. And you're right, Charlie, in the sense that when you have kind of an intentional strategy on the part of leadership to force this into a corner, it's going to leave something to be desired on the execution front. But here's the good news. I think the House conservatives are increasingly united in forcing a conversation about moving forward on bill by bill and really focusing on the woke and weaponized restrictions that need to be put in place to put a vice grip around the Biden administration's activities against the American people. I think you're going to see those kinds of debates this week, and it's going to move to a good place in terms of the theatrics of the last several weeks. I want to make sure that we calm down the alarmism. So I received a couple emails this weekend. Charlie, I can't believe you want a government shutdown. I need my Social Security checks. Russ, let's tell the truth about this. Social Security still goes out. Medicare still goes out. Essential government services, which I find hilarious because if they're not essential, why do they have jobs? They should all be fired. This is a partial, very partial, let's just call it a fractional government pause because it's not actually a shutdown because they all get back pay. It's basically the secret that no one wants to say is that a lot of government workers are hoping for this because they basically get a vacation. Russ, tell us what really happens because this is important. You've got the parameters of this. Two -thirds of the federal government is on autopilot. Not a good situation, but the reality of where we are. So a third of the federal government is subject to what we call the annual appropriations process. But if you're on Social Security, there's nothing to worry about. You're going to get your check, and you're going to get your check on time. Medicare, the Department of Defense is going to continue to be out there defending our country. All of the people that are in the business of securing this country are going to be similarly at their posts. What this does is this says for those of you who are working on the Biden climate regulations at the EPA or the Department of Interior, sorry, you're going to have to go home. You're not going to be able to be at your desk and working. So this is not something – there are tried and true ways, and I've managed this for President Trump, to make this painless as possible consistent with the law. We thankfully blazed a pretty good trail on that, that they're going to have a hard time playing politics with this. We'll be holding them accountable. But in terms of the – this is not a situation where you're going to go off a cliff, and somehow you're not going to get your government benefits. It's just not the case. Okay, so let's get into this here. What then is the ask? Because the way I look at it, the way the stars have aligned, the universe, all of a sudden – I'm not happy about this, but it just so happens the border has never been as bad as it is right now. And that's like intersecting right with this funding fight over border security. Russ, if Republicans can't get this done, when there's 8 ,500 people illegally entering an eagle pass alone, I mean, it's not as if this is something that happened six months ago. This is actively occurring. Then Republicans are completely worthless. Russ, so what is the ask, and strategically, what is your advice for how they actually get it done? So my view is that they have had a wonderful banner, a messaging parameter called no security, no funding, that allows them to be able to go at this seminal threat that we're seeing along the border, and to make that a very, very important issue. I also think it allows them to deal with the weaponization at the Department of Justice. I don't think that we can leave this leverage point without doing something against the regime that is trying to steal the next election, and at the same time going against half the country and considering them enemies of the state. So I think there's a lot of things that can be done, but if we don't get to the end of this process and have dealt with those two issues, and then spend a lot of time trying to defund the offices doing the bad activities, I'll consider it a failure. So the goal needs to be then not paperwork processors on the border, but actual border security. That's a major difference. But also, I think that the pressure needs to be that Joe Biden needs to start deporting these people. He's hosting them and just releasing them into the interior of the United States. Exactly. And there's a specific rider that needs to be put in place, and Stephen Miller has been calling for this some time, as well as Chip Roy. It needs to be illegal in the sense that you can't spend the money to be able to release someone into the border. That's the kind of thing that it's not just about changing laws that they ignore. It's about saying that a bureaucrat is going to be facing criminal charges in violation of the Anti -Deficiency Act if they ignore the appropriations law that's saying that they can't do that. And as a result, that will change a lot of the policies that we've been asking for. So we're looming towards this lockdown. Re -emphasize what you're saying about leadership. How has leadership basically set the table for failure? Build that out for us. Sure. The year started with much promise. For the first time, House Republicans were governing with conservatives in their caucus, and they were achieving things that no one thought was possible to pass $5 trillion in potential cuts. At the debt limit deal, Kevin McCarthy walked away from House conservatives and went essentially into coalition with House Democrats. At the time, he used it as an excuse. He said, we'll do all this through the appropriations process. That was an excuse, because they then didn't move any of the appropriations bills themselves. It's not like these bills are passed out of the House and sitting in the Senate. Instead, they've had a pileup in which we are now up against a deadline, and they're asking for more time. But the problem is that McCarthy has never governed from the standpoint of we're going to use leverage points to save the country. Instead, he puts a cartel view on it, which is we're going to try to minimize what is necessary to get past this leverage point, because otherwise it will have political risk. I think you and I agree, we're not going to save the country without managing political risk, and we can do that. We have done that previously in shutdowns, and the country will reward Republicans when they fight over these leverage points. That's what we're asking right now, and I think conservatives are insisting on it, and so far, he's having to go in their direction. Yeah, and I think we need to reject the framing of shutdown, which, by the way, ideologically, all I'm on board for. Maybe a pause? I mean, how else can we message this? Because, Russ, here's what's going to happen, right? So we are barreling towards not getting a deal done on Saturday, right? And honestly, I hope a deal doesn't get done in the sense of enough, draw a line in the sand, show your voters you're fighting. It's better for no deal than a bad deal. I think you would agree with that, right, Russ? It's better for no deal at all than a bad deal. And so September 30th happens, and again, your Social Security checks still go out, Medicare still goes out, military still do. You have the DEI, you know, lesbian bureaucrats at the Department of Homeland Security or whatever that might not, you know, be going to work for a couple days. Honestly, good thing. So, but Russ, let's just kind of think about this. How could we better message it? Because the media, Sunday morning, I face the nation, CBS, all that full court press, Republicans shut down the government once midnight hits on Saturday night. So how do we get ahead of this and preemptively message it, not just be on our heels and play defense? Yeah, I mean, I think the reality is, to go back to the facts, what is occurring here is a lapse in funding. It is a lapse in funding. The government is not shutting down. The Department of Defense is still up and running. That would be the case if it actually shut down. Those people would not be at their post. What is happening? Funding is lapsed. Funding will come back on when Congress reaches a deal. And I think if we can communicate facts in that vein, we will help our case and explain to the American people what's actually going on. But here's the thing that I would say. These leverage points in which there is confrontation, there is political risk, are incredibly important because the only chance that we get to get the country's attention. It's when people who are not listening to politics are listening to their Christian music station or whatever they're listening to. And all of a sudden they have the news update that's saying, OK, there's a government lapse. What are the terms that are being discussed? Oh, the weaponization of the Department of Justice. That's what we want. And that is a feature, not a bug, of our politicians here in the cartel of Washington, D .C. Russ, you're doing a wonderful job. Center for Renewing America. We're going to have you back on. September 30th is the big day. I think we're going to swing and miss. But honestly, I'd rather have us strike out with no deal than one that betrays our voters. Russ, thank you so much. You bet. Thanks, Charlie.

A highlight from 1214. EU Beats U.S. To Bitcoin ETF SEC Delays Again

"All right so more action on ETFs and the only difference is is now that ETFs are being approved but they're being approved across the pond in the EU we'll break down all that for you guys today what this might mean to the US in terms of an ETF approval and hopefully going forward with Bitcoin and the modern era of finance we'll break all that down for you my name is Paul Baron welcome back and the Tech Path. All right so a couple of things I want to hit on today of course is the news Europe launches its first spot Bitcoin ETF I know that that's a little bit let me kind of zoom in on that from watchaguru I know that's a little bit misleading because there has been ETFs in the EU before this one is a little different I'll explain why there is so it's technically there is a new ETF out there so Jacobi Asset Management lists Europe's first Bitcoin ETF euro on next this of course is the difference let me kind of zoom in on a few things here they implemented a verifiable built -in renewable energy so it's a rec solution which allows institutional investors to access the benefits of Bitcoin also meeting the ESG goals which is a big deal in in the EU trades under the ticker Bitcoin custodial services are provided none other than by Fidelity and all of this is created in collaboration with digital asset platform called Zumo and the Zumo is gonna be interesting because we'll play into that they're a kind of a everything as a service type platform further into the release it's exciting see you're moving ahead of the u .s. opening up Bitcoin unlike other products in the European market which are debt instruments our funds own the underlying asset directly so that's kind of the biggest deal this is the first true ETF that is owning the the asset itself the underlying asset one -to -one so that's the the big point that they're trying to make the Kobe solution differs from carbon offsetting products by quantifying the electricity consumption attributable to Bitcoin in the ETF by purchasing equivalent wrecks and the standardized instrument for procuring clean power so again going back into those ESG requirements that are a big deal in the in the EU so as you look at this and you just wonder you know when will the United States start to actually get into the game EU obviously now scoring what is feels like a two to zero match if you're into soccer and that is with Mika's advancement and now here with a true spot it Bitcoin ETF so along with that and then you've got technology that's starting to play into this Zumo which is the company behind this latest update of Zumo's app is now available on the App Store and the Google Play Store you can trade doing fast transactions you can also do a full what they call infinite control your funds on the blockchain and then you can do some buying and selling over there in etherium and Bitcoin so this gets into how and what will be the next step here in the United States because obviously we already know that we are at the cusp of we hope at the cusp of the SEC actually approving one there's a lot of other things that are playing into this that I think are the political aspect and this is what I talk about a lot is that this has become so much more political than anything what I mean by that is by the SEC actually doing the approval of a Bitcoin spot ETF one thing that is happening is you've got things like this and that is Senator Lummis now filing an amicus brief supporting coin bases dismissal motion against the SEC this would be a big deal because if the SEC or if we get a dismissal on the Coinbase case it would be a pretty big loss for the SEC and already we've started to see this issue facing the SEC as a whole just with what's happening in the ripple case so I think that in the support of what's happening from the lawmaker side of things you can kind of see that the statements here says the constitutional empowers Congress not the SEC to legislate in such an area of profound economical political significance this to me gets into the point that is often under looked and I think that is the political power that is happening globally much like what happened with the EU on filing an ETF for Spock Bitcoin and I think this is now in the case of a lot of lawmakers who have said all right we've had enough we've got to be able to get moves and move forward on this further in this article says also also although the SEC seeks broad authority over crypto assets most legislative proposals in Congress would instead grant much of the authority to other agencies I'm satisfied the SEC seeks to circumvent the political process to commandeer that authority itself this is a senator talking about a government agency in the SEC of course met a lawman who's been on our show many times kind of breaks it down I'll show you his tweet right here it kind of goes into the the brief and what she's arguing let me zoom in on that Congress has not granted the SEC authority so that's number one defined defining the contours of crypto regulation in this country is a job for Congress not the SEC back to the point of where a bipartisan effort of lawmakers is really the goal here because the SEC has kind of taken the reins of what crypto has been about in terms of legislation by enforcement which has been the the biggest knock on the SEC over the past few years SEC's claim that virtually all crypto assets are securities exceeds the securities authority encroaches on Congress's lawmaking and contravenes the separation of power so again very much said and I think this is one thing we've talked about so many times here on the show the key is when is that next step when do we see a potential for this going forward I think the key with this is how many people are starting to support what's happening in the not only the but lawmakers also in support of Coinbase also other organizations out here so you've got crypto lobbyists urged now a court to also dismiss the case and you'll look in total here let me kind of zoom in on that you've got the blockchain Association the crypto council for innovation Chamber of Digital Commerce defy education founder Chamber of Progress consumer tax association and even firms like Andreessen Horowitz which obviously is a huge VC come organization that supports what's happening in blockchain further into this one says this is a no run -of -the -mill run -of -the -mill enforcement case through this case the SEC seeks primary influence over economic political and legal questions under active consideration by Congress and multiple agencies that is the real rub that I think is occurring and it's as I've said many times that this is such a political ploy right now I don't of trying to dominate the conversation and also the actions from a control factor I think it's either it's a controllable grab or there is a political you know substance behind this that's really driving what Gensler's decisions are pushing so a couple other points in here Loomis brief did note each of these bills recognizes that the crypto industry's not fit entirely within the existing securities law and transcends the current statutory powers of the SEC simply stating we know that there's a lot of things here in modern finance and modern you know blockchain technology that is really kind of going outside the ecosystem what how it meaning the investment contract concept of how securities are ruled and governed has changed so Congress is attuned to these important considerations and obviously they're trying to do something about that right now so we do know that all of that is happening right now and it's moving pretty fast now here's John Reed Sartre another attorney out there on and SEC especially securities law he talks a little bit further about this about the the partisanship around this so crypto regs have unfortunately become increasingly partisan at the SEC remember that right now the SEC the governor's or the commissioners at the SEC split pretty much down the red the middle right now a Democratic Republican crypto crackdown began under Republican appointed the SEC chair Clayton fierce and relentless crypto critic if we do see a Republican elected president likelihood is that we'd probably see a potential Republican lead as the Commission now that could be Hester Pierce a Republican all this does play into so it has become very partisan I would agree was was stark on this so it is something to watch for question is whether or not there will be anything of major substance happening between now and when that occurs meaning when we see lawmakers actually shift in that if we do see lawmakers shift in the administration here's a clip right here by Raul Powell kind of breaking down why all of this is happening listen in to this one what he had to say the problem is is US regulation is run by a bunch of baby boomers who only referenced the past like we have to figure out how to deal with AI we have we got a lot of really existentially important things that can't be just shoehorned into something from the 1930s because that's how a boomer wants it to be and other governments are doing it and the US is not whether it's the power of the people or just the politicians are so old now that they'll be replaced by younger people I hope Raul is right you know working in Capitol Hill with lobbyists in the past I've seen the birth of you know kind of this political and governmental heft that just sits in DC and I think crypto and blockchain in general is just like any other great technology moving forward AI will face this as well in terms of regulatory environments and what that might mean because really at the end of the day what we are talking about here is corruption corruption at the highest level we're talking about whose pockets are lined that's why this is slowing down it really is more about who wins and until there is a framework for the right politicians winning it the right way we may not see action and that's the biggest concern and obviously Raul is talking about that is that there's so many other countries that have already stepped into this and moving forward you have John Deaton saying though that there could be a major move here and this could also sway into the fact that we might get more pressure this and this is coming from our court system not from our politicians so be on the lookout today Friday for potential decision this was earlier this should hopefully give crypto even more momentum even though arbitrary capricious is a high and difficult standard mean I've always maintained the SEC will lose if someone fought back regarding a spot Bitcoin ETF he's talking about grayscale so Eric Balcones kind of jumps in very good possible possibility that we learn grayscale SEC outcome tomorrow this was just here end of yesterday we haven't heard it yet as a filming right now so likelihood is we may get an actual case win here and that would really put the SEC in a bad position it would put them in a bad position from a legal standpoint and actually start to put a lot more pressure on them and that's when it gets a little bit unusual because now we're talking about a court that is ruling on this so meaning it's ruling from a court of law as opposed to regulators who are trying to essentially create a pathway for this technology and all these kind of companies to exist so that's the biggest thing I think that's playing out I want to play another clip right here this of course is of Jay Clayton talking about the current status of not only crypto but also Bitcoin listen to what now remember Clayton former SEC chair Gensler's boss used to be and now he's taking a little different listen well look the SEC postponed the decision but they are they are seeking public comment and the landscape for Bitcoin and retail access to Bitcoin has definitely changed and let's just let's just look at where we are today I when I was SEC chair was very skeptical of the Bitcoin trading markets and and whether you believe Bitcoin is going to go to whatever or dry up and go away I think that's no longer the question you know you had Russ Benjamin he was talking about it's clearly a commodity it should be regulated like a commodity we have large retail participation around the globe and people want access to it now what do we have we have very credible financial institutions who have fiduciary duties duties of best interest to their customers who are saying we want to deliver this product and we can do so consistent with those obligations last thing all right so right there you can kind of see he has pivoted his position this is a guy who was a staunch critic of crypto changed completely and he did hit on all the markers there major financial institutions the blockchain itself Bitcoin as a whole not going away likelihood whether you want to treat it as a commodity which I think obviously they will the key here is is that it doesn't it's not really on regulators like the SEC to decide who wins and who loses the markets do that and I think that's the most important thing that he does hit on here on this so for but again that coming from Jay Clayton pretty interesting stuff for sure all right so Bitcoin ETF is now pushing a slice of crypto ETF trading volume which would be around 99 % this of course means simply that though the EU has launched an ETF a true spot ETF the real volume is going to come from the United States this is the big behemoth if you look here there's actually a chart that shows that North America accounts for ninety seven point seven percent of all crypto ETF trading volume if and when a spot ETF comes out in the US it will likely go to ninety nine point five percent so as interesting as the EU is that's why we probably didn't see much of a move on Bitcoin in general it really is all about the United States and I think that's what Raul was getting at is that there is so much power coming out of the United States in terms of investment capacity and what that might mean that the opportunity here is pretty significant so I just think it's one of those things that you have to just be aware of especially as we see both what's happening on the EU and also what's happening obviously here in the United States when it comes to ETF so one thing to be aware of for sure all right so just kind of supporting a little bit of the activity that's occurring right here here's the news on this eagerly awaited Jacobi Bitcoin ETF lukewarm reception on the debut and they're kind of hitting on the whole issue only four transactions this of course happened after its first listing you can kind of see it right here in the listings themselves transactions for so again this just reinforces the whole point that it everything of round bitcoins ETF future is going to set here in the United States it just is going to be the case I want to just a further why this is so important I want to go to this tweet right here and there's a clip I want to play from this but I want to go to the statement here a lot of Bitcoin ETFs have been filed but just black rock is the 800 pound gorilla truly the one why is black rock different it comes down to lobbying power and the connections with the SEC listen in to what he had to say let me play this one for you one of the major narratives driving the last cycle was the institutions are coming those institutions came in small part you know but that promise of the institutions arriving and really diving headfirst in the crypto never quite materialized so that's what's so interesting about our current period which you know we may be in a crypto winter we might be coming out of it but if there are signs that we're coming out of it it's exactly this this institutional investment so black rock for example is the largest asset manager in the world and they just filed a Bitcoin ETF with SEC a lot of Bitcoin ETFs have been filed in the past years but none from an asset manager as high profile and well connected in Washington as black rock as you can see the key here is how much you know power does black rock have well they have an immense amount of power now one thing that our team kind of mentioned on what we were doing this video is what happens if black rock gets an ETF or art gets an ETF and we just don't see any transaction I'm kind of interested in your thoughts do you think we'll see a massive inroad of people going into Bitcoin I believe we will mainly because of the power of the marketing that will come behind this it'll come from arc it'll come from galaxy it'll come from black rock Vanek you name it they're all gonna be competing pretty much at the same time meaning they're gonna spend a lot of money to get out there and educate people and get things going that's why I do think it's gonna pop Bitcoin as a whole for sure all right further on into this just to show you a market Bitcoin ETF approval could help power up the new crypto cycle this is coming in from Bernsten I would talked about him before he hits on a couple of points here leading global asset manager you know is big in Bitcoin spot ETFs probability of this approval has risen we've already talked about that ETF will benefit a strong brand marketing push that's back to my point is that all these financial advisors and all these groups are going to push very hard which is going to elevate the awareness around blockchain of crypto and especially Bitcoin as a whole so new capital is gonna power up the new cycle this will come in from fresh stable coin supply tokenized traditional assets native crypto infrastructure tokenization of ETFs etc all of that plays out and back to the clip that was we just played here by Sam just a second ago with the Forbes writer is you know he is right the last cycle was kind of deemed as this is going to be when institutions come in this is but Black Rock wasn't in the game nor was you know these 15 others that have started to move in that we did not have an ETF being proposed and most likely going to get approved it right on the heels I believe of what happens with Bitcoin none of that was occurring we didn't have regulation in play we didn't have the clarity in the market where we had to go through basically the Wars of FTX is the voyagers the Celsius is seeing what was all done wrong now we have a much more you know aware market we have a much more savvy investor and we have these major organizations starting to step in so I think it is in the right place right now of course we're recording this there's constant news always hitting our research team one of the things that has happened is this tweet right here and that is about Kunis talking about it looks like no grayscale decisions so this has been delayed meaning grayscale trust this is now going to Friday 11 a .m.

"russ" Discussed on Awards Chatter

"The first, the first director that I worked for. He had a play that someone else wrote, but he was directing it at the coronet theater on Los Angeles. And so I went in audition for it. And Lloyd gave me the part and it was a great part of a young boy named pai. And it was about a bunch of kids that go to this, go to this park place and I end up getting killed in it. So it was a very dramatic part. And it was that really got started. And it was a couple of directors and producers that saw the play and brought me to audition for Cecil B. DeMille. And well, and that's, I mean, I don't know if anyone else alive today can talk about working for Cecil B. DeMille. So I've got to ask you, I mean, first of all, the legend is that he's walking around with these high socks and the speaker phone and you know what I mean? It was all of that true. This showmanship. It was definitely true. But a writing crop and he had tight pants at the bottom and boots and he was quite a character. He was the only other one I worked it was much of a character with John Ford. But that was later on. Well, but with DeMille, so you go into paramount, you audition for Samson and Delilah. Did you even know, I know they had a thing I think they called it the fishbowl where people would go and audition in front of the mirror, not knowing it was a two way mirror. Was that exactly right. I auditioned with another actor, I guess, that was under contract. Kenny remember his name now, but he was under contract to paramount and he was just the two of us in this room.

Victims of Nashville school shooting honored in somber vigil

"Victims of the Nashville school shooting were remembered at a solemn vigil Wednesday night. Hundreds of people gathered at a candlelight vigil in downtown Nashville to honor and mourn those shot and killed at the covenant school earlier this week. Two days ago was our cities worst day. Nashville mayor John Cooper addressed the crowd. I still wish we did not need to be here. But we need to be here. The event included performances by Sheryl Crow, Margo price, and catch sea corps of old crow medicine show. First Lady Jill Biden, civic leaders and the 7 children of murdered school custodian Mike hill were among those who attended, city council member, Russ pulley. Covenant staff laid down their lives attempting to protect the children in their care. Police said 28 year old former student Audrey Hale shot out glass doors at the school Monday morning, and fired indiscriminately, killing three 9 year old students, the head of the school, a substitute teacher, and mister hill.

Kevin Had to Make a Lot of Promises to House Conservatives

"On our emails, people are pretty upset. They say never a deal should not have been struck, you know, this was a total fraud. I disagree. I trust the negotiation, even Matt dates said he ran out of stuff to ask for. Matt Gaetz said, I got nothing else to ask for. There's a fair amount of positive emails as well, but I want to keep on hearing from you freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com because the moderates have power too. You have to remember that. It's not just the 20 holdouts that had power for a limited time. The moderates were preparing to strike back. Someone said Charlie stopped calling the moderates, call them Democrats. Okay, they could be rhinos. They could be Biden Republicans. They could be whatever you want to call them. They were preparing to strike back. For example, Nancy mace went on television and said that I don't think I'm going to vote for the rules package, or I don't know how I'm going to vote on the rules package. The rules package, by the way, is going to be an 80 to 100 page bill that will be voted on in the next day or two, that crystallizes all of these concessions. So for example, many of you said, well, Charlie, how do we trust them? How do we trust them? There is no trusting. If McCarthy is going to be good for his word, then all of this will be summarized in that 80 to 100 page rules package. If not, they're not going to vote for it and the deal will be dead. And since there is now a one person, there's now a one threshold, the vacate the chair, we will restart. So McCarthy is going to be forced to be good for his word. It's not a matter of trust. Once that rules package passes and it is put into ink, it doesn't matter if you trust somebody or not, it becomes the standard operating procedure.

Charlie Walks Through the Newly-Made House Deal

"Is Nancy mace, who went on television yesterday and said, I don't know if I'm going to vote for the rules package. The rules package is the whole enchilada that the freedom caucus negotiated last week. So the deal that we're about to go through the concessions we went through. If the moderates don't vote for that on the floor when it comes forward, then it effectively blows up the entire speakers race. And we might have to start all over again. You can only push and negotiation so far until the deal blows up. And I want to give credit to chip Roy and give credits on a paulina give credit to gosar. Give credit to all of them. This is Nancy mace, the moderates play cut 12. How are you going to work with these folks to get anything done for the American people? It's going to be very difficult. Matt Gaetz is a fraud. Every time he voted against Kevin McCarthy last week, he sent out a fundraising email. What you saw last week was a constitutional process diminished by those kinds of political actions. I don't support that kind of behavior. Yeah, you just support obedience to the regime. We got that Nancy. Thanks for shopping. There's another piece of tape though where she says she might not even vote for the rules package. Now you might say, oh, who cares? That could obliterate very serious concessions that were brokered thanks to these courageous holdouts. Again, I was skeptical of the strategy. I was skeptical because I thought the moderates were going to blow this up. I thought Don bacon and Tony Gonzalez and Nancy mace were going to blow this up a lot earlier. They were starting to threaten that finally on Friday. Now, what are these concessions? First and foremost, concession number one, adding conservative freedom caucus members to the House rules committee. Now you don't hear very much about the House rules committee. It's the machinery of Congress. It's kind of where the sausage is made. It's the behind the scenes type work. Well, the rules committee decides whether the house will vote on legislation at all.

After 15 Rounds of Voting, Kevin McCarthy Has Finally Been Elected

"Late Friday evening going into Saturday morning, a deal was struck for Speaker of the House. The 20 holdouts negotiated a fabulous deal. And I will be very honest with you, as many of you who watch and listen to this program with regularity, I was skeptical. And I was skeptical for good reason, and I'm gonna prove that my skepticism was rooted in a real threat, but these holdouts got us a terrific deal. They pushed it just far enough with real demands. Serious asks of what success looks like, and these are patriots. They're not terrorists as some people on television called them. Dan Crenshaw called them. Narcissistic, insurgents, sociopathic enemies. This is all nonsense. These are patriots that showed in the end that they were willing to negotiate in good faith. Now, these concessions led to real substantive rule changes if the rules package can indeed pass in the next day or two. We're going to talk in great detail of what that means, but we must realize that on late Friday evening, the kind of forces that we're holding out, everyone from Andy Biggs to Eli crane to Matt rosendale to Lauren boebert to Matt Gaetz to Anna paulina Luna. They were pushing and pushing and pushing for real rules changes, but there was a rumbling that began to surface. And that rumbling was from the moderate wing. The moderate wing that consists of people like Nancy mace and Tony Gonzalez and Dan Crenshaw. And Burgess Owens, people that are very much in the establishment of the Republican Party and they were getting and Don bacon. They were getting very angry at Matt Gaetz and Lauren boebert and Andy Biggs and the people that were trying to strike a conservative deal that would represent voters.

"Also guys that have been in the G league for some years now, you know, since they've been drafted, AKA Stanley Johnson, who has been in the league for a while, has already had their chance to actually be in actual NBA and experience that went to the GD experience that. Got their game up. And so now they're ready. They might have been in the league for maybe 6, 7 years. They were in the jubilee they come out, boom. And you're starting to see veterans that's going into the geo group now to be able to do that as well. So I think that I think that's the key as far as getting young talent. And not only that, but just you be able to save money to be able to do that. If the cap is if the cap is a problem, which obviously it is a problem. But if it's going to be a problem going in the next season, if we can't get off Russ, did you leave, I believe, is definitely, it should definitely be the primary focus on where to get the young talent from. Because I honestly believe that due to this turn of the tide with errors, I think it's going to be a lot harder to find players to sign better that men contracts. Monks.

"Media, how much does Russ care about the counting stats? How much does that matter? Getting averaging or getting close to a triple double. If that is out the window, that no longer is a concern of his, then maybe you get there, but you've heard him bring that up a few times last season, where those stats do matter to him, even if they don't lead to winning. So that's going to be key for Darby hammies to get away from this whole idea that winning or averaging a triple double equals success because I don't think that's what a successful Russell Westbrook is going to look like on this team. I agree with you. And I think that it's going to be so hard to teach an old dog new tricks. But in my ideal situation of Westbrook turned into pat bev on steroids, I think that would benefit the Lakers so much. And the other part. You know what I mean? If you just focus that anger and that energy and that tenacity just on the defensive end and did let go of those statistics, not stop adding sorry. I'll take it back. But those stack conscious sort of plays. I think it would be like an intense success, especially like tenfold over if you would come off the bench, but he won't. But the other part that's really stressing me out too is AD Braun and Russ are all so ball dominant. So if we're going to be going into this new quote on quote system and culture, obviously it needs to speed up for today's game and especially to compete with people like the warriors and the physicality for people like the green team over there. But if we can get them moving the ball, like Braun obviously wants to do less. AD is showing some sort of timid mental blocker because maybe he's scared to get injured again and then Russ just gets frustrated and goes, I have to run to the basket. I gotta do something. If we can switch those mentality and get people on like a movement sort of skill, I think it could work. I'm just not sure if those three together are able.

"But if only because it's going to make Russell Westbrook feel better. If you want to keep rust bought in saying, hey, you can talk about him sacrificing and all that. But having sacrificed by burning his energy on defense, like what Darwin have said, that's where he wants him expending his energy or not having the ball in his hands on offense. Get a bought in there. Don't really push it by saying and we're taking your starting job because that will be a slight to him. He won't be happy with that. And that is not what you want. You want him more brought in. And I think you can accomplish the same goals. We talked about this a lot last season by tailoring your rotation in the correct way. You can accomplish the same goal that you would be striving for by bringing him off the bench. But like you said, you bring him in for the first few minutes of the first quarter. Maybe you give him 5 minutes or whatever with the quote unquote starters. And then you stop them out, and then from there, you're running in primarily with the bench unit, so you're accomplishing the same thing just without rocking the boat. And let's face it, if he's coming off the bench, that's going to become a question. You're going to have to answer in the media every single day. And he and Russ was going to get asked every single day. I just think you can sidestep the whole situation and still get the same result if you stagger your rotation correctly, which I think ultimately is probably what we will see darvin ham do. This season, if Russell Westbrook's on the team. No, I agree. And I think that's the right way to go. And I trust darvin to make the right decision. Honestly. All right, we are bringing in another guest here. We're bringing in flu rub Rosalind. Hey guys, how are you doing? How's it going? Sandwich up from the other side of the border. I'm in Montreal, Canada, not a rapist. Definitely not a Celtics fan. A little backstory. I didn't start wearing green until we tied them in chips. So like they can't win this year because green I'd say we're trying to get on me, so like I can't stop wearing that now. That's quite a conundrum. Yeah, but it's really exciting. To play to your point that you were saying, I think if the Lakers can somehow utilize rust to his best skill set without allowing outside media attention to get into his head, him buying in like all these guys want to win. On a personal level or a team level at the end of the day, they want to win. So if we use Russ as kind of like and don't slam me for this, but like almost a mini Rodman where he's getting under people's skins, he's scrappy, he's getting to the boards. And then he's just bringing that energy, I think that it could work with him. That being said, I did read something today that said the Lakers were looking into the young bull in Cleveland. And I think Cleveland may be into someone like Westbrook, but Han said he wants to do a four out one in. And I think if Russ is just a slasher, getting the board doing all those things. I.

"Like the packers weren't getting rid of Aaron for like anything less than probably three first rounders. I think they were going to be like, the price is really high. Maybe not 'cause if he wants out he wants out, but. I think I would rather get Rogers because 33. Yeah. So here's the deal with Ross. He has dropped off. The last couple of years? I think he doesn't have that safety net of like he can get out of any sack. Like when he was in his late 20s, like you couldn't, you couldn't sack the guy. And he's not like a great guy in structure. He's really not. And the Seahawks kind of knew that. That's kind of why they did run the ball on earlier downs. If you look at Russ in the quick game, early down drop backs, he's a very average to even below average quarterback. Whether it's this processing or his height or whatever it is, that's just not his game. I think the Seahawks were kind of right in the way of like, let's give them a play action offense. We can launch it down the field. We'll run the ball well. It just didn't work out. So I just think Rogers is a much better player than Russ at this point. And I think there's a chance that Rogers is better in three years still than Russ is in three years. I think there's a chance Russ continues to kind of drop off. I'm not saying it's gonna happen, but I think it's close. I still would rather have Rogers because he is a much better quarterback than Russ. And I think Rogers can play into his 40s, like Brady did. Not till 45, but well he doesn't rely on his athletic ability either. I mean, he's not, he's not joking people out and making crazy spinous and reversing field and stuff. He can move. Let's not get that wrong, but he's not relying on athleticism the same way Russ has play style does. Yeah. Russ plays like Kyler Murray, and Kyler Murray is 23, 24, something like that. 33, you're not going to do that. Rogers kind of had that in 2017. When the floor got there, Rogers kind of had that realization that his physical Rogers used to be like that too. He really did, but Rogers really became a really effective quick game quarterback. He's been getting rid of the ball much better. He's been just a better surgeon from the pocket. And I don't know if Russ said his height and what he's shown to this point is ever going to do that. He certainly could, but I don't know if he's going to do that. Rogers is already become a better pocket player, but Denver's Denver's pop and champagne either way. Let's be honest. Yeah, I'm really so excited to watch. We get to see Herbert versus Wilson twice a year. Mahomes versus Wilson twice a year and mahomes versus Herbert twice a year. That division is unbelievable. It should be so much fun. It's good for football. Frankly, I mean, it's gonna be awesome. Oh..

I mean, you might be able to go to a dinner or something and have a chance to talk to them for 5 minutes or so. But we're really lucky today to sit and have an honest, long half hour conversation with an individual who's running for the House and delegates.

The things that they're concerned about, things like education and school choice, right to life, constitutional freedoms. The economy and COVID, small businesses, protecting the community and public safety and whether or not the police should be defunded. We cover the whole variety of that.

Now i'm saying this for a reason because we have a new episode out with cash patel that i encourage all of you to listen to but if you wanna listen to in my opinion. The best analysis of the origins of the russian investigation of peter struck of lisa page of where the all came from. And where we are headed. I'm telling you cash patel who is being targeted by every major institution on the left that you can imagine key breaks down how john durham is building a criminal conspiracy case against the deep state. It was compelling. It was detailed. I pushed him on a lot of different things. And that's exclusively on the charlie kirk show. Podcast app of cash patel. It's one of my favorite episodes. We've done in recent times and it's all around this topic of who is going to be held accountable for what was done back in two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen timeframe with peter struck and lisa page spying on a presidential campaign and hoping to get away with russ or russell brand now says well.

They would've won the election without russia that he's whole presidency was kind of employees. Well there's now serious evidence that it was the clinton campaign and hillary clinton acolytes lueth directly involved in the generation of has proven to be a conspiracy untrue.

The kid With the Pittsburgh Penguins, but unfortunately you have nothing against euros playing in the NHL or people from Sweden and whatnot, But there's such a huge influx. You tell him euros. I did was that not good because he usually say single grows on the brakes y way. Ease it down. Is that that Mexican doughnut thing That's real long. That's a sure. Oh, my bad, I don't think continue. You have some great players from European countries that have in the NHL. And so people just they don't make the connection like you know, Wayne, who grew up in Edmonton, right? And then you know, playing for a historic franchise like Edmonton, so it would be great to see the days of the Marty McSorley's the You know the guys that would You know the real enforcers that would go out to where it was chum with you. And you knew I'm going on. You wouldn't watch the game for a while. You just watched the sideline for when it was going to happen. And basically it was. It was a blindside train wreck. I need to go on the whole place. Looks like a yard sale Pretty much No. And and and the and the two guys, you know, we're going to fight with just skate to the face off circle. Just wait. You would just Yeah. And you're off that hockey game that hockey is gone. We're having right here. You know, we broadcast out of San Diego, California and we have the U. S open once again coming to San Diego. I know the PGA players love Coming coming here. Even it was for the farmers. Absolutely. Every U. S submarines, the farmers.

The place looks great PGA Championship is this weekend was this weekend one of my favorite corners of the world. Kiawah, South Carolina. I was going to say out on the ocean course. I've been fortunate to gulp that. Course a couple of times that the Myrtle Beach area Myrtle Beach Hilton head. Um Kiawah Island is beautiful. It's with the PGA Championship. It's the hospitality like this. Are we Are we back to normal 75%. They have sold as far as you know, there, sweets and their shells and things like that, But we're well over 50% as far as the The galleries are concerned on the PGA Tour, and I think by the time we get to the U s open at Torrey Pines, we, you know, obviously, California opens up on June 15th. You'll see the massive gallery They stopped selling sweets and stuff there for a while. And Tory plans for the U. S open. And if they're open back up again, But document like candy? No, I don't think they still can't be that rough. Just broccoli. Yes, but But honestly, I think that there's They stopped selling tickets for a while because of whatever tier Gavin Newsom in the state of California as well and wasn't sure what it was going to be. And those who get snatched up like that, if not by private citizens, Corporations, people who want to move their clients and stuff like that. Come on, Russ. Okay, I got you guys look at you. Uh, last of all, um Will Aaron Rodgers play for the Denver Broncos? Will Aaron Rodgers play for The sandy a bigger part in L. A Chargers, not the only charges because they love Justin Herbert. Maybe the Broncos because they're still looking for it. He's leaving right there, saying he is leaving. He's like what is tired of the shenanigans. I'm tired of the being the good guy fighting my lip and then you draft quarterback. And then when I say you need a wide receiver you'd have to defensive person. The Raiders are a team that has the draft capital. Um, they they might go after. I have a question about if you imagine Aaron Rodgers. Yeah, the guy he was Aaron Rodgers, the Lone Ranger. It's only when it is the guy with the White hat versus snidely Whiplash Right now he's changing. Guards could use a Bay Area guys from cow.

I mean, yes, he did call us more than once having broken down. Let them a mile down the road. Yeah, but when you do it, uh did he ever come get you? Well, I know how to fill my gas tank so well that Yeah, that does help. Yeah. Instead. Like if something happened with Jerry or Clo, I think Russ would contact me or you, Alfie to then contact Jordan toy. I told Russell like, you know, you could have called them like No, you do it. Okay? Dan never waits for us at all. Khloe still doesn't wait for us. He stayed by stealing away for us. No, I'm getting hell out of here. All right, calling our guy just backs. You guys are fine. Besides, if anyone wants to kill anybody, it ain't Clo. He's safe. Just saying might be nice to have Dan wait around for us. Make sure we're okay. I've had a stalker. I've had to Clyde to throw his keys on the roof of a gas station to keep from losing his car. Yeah, but that had nothing to do with whether or not we were waiting for him in the garage here. You don't know that we Maybe If we had gone with him to get gas and waited for him, he would have gotten carjacked. So are you willing to follow close around? Everywhere he goes. Yes, I am. Alright. Prove it. Even that shady Valero. That was a shady Valero too, okay? I drove by there the other day, Dude, I was trying to scope out. Like all right. Where was close standing? How far of an arc what you had to throw. I think it was a pretty long toss. It was to get those keys on the roof of that Valero. Yeah, because the thing that goes over the gas pumps that cover Is kind of like in in the way a little bit. I just happened to be at a good place where I could throw. Yeah, The weird thing is, is the part of the story that we left out. Was the fact that the person that was trying to carjack Clo was actually his date. He just refused to open her door.

"I am in the very fortunate position of being able to set the scene for tonight's debate and that's actually very easy. Because the scientific truth is forty-two diet nari according to date thought a supercomputer in douglas adams's hitchhikers guide to the galaxy that spent seven and a half million years competing the answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything the answer to that question and therefore the ultimate scientific truth is forty two so i mean i think we don russ semi point obvious. Is that often. The truth is not very helpful tight. The ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. That's mathematical constant. It's a scientific truth. And when it's expressed in decimal form it has an infinite number of decimal places but but the question is actually how are an infinite number of decimal places useful to us an approximation of twenty two seven three point. One pfoa is what we can actually use in practice. We don't need a want the truth. We want something we can apply to achieve what we need to solve problems to build things to ensure the well being of our children so tonight ice with my esteemed colleagues greta and jack we will convince you that the scientific truth is not helpful to humanity particularly now and arguably more than any other time in human history. The truth is not useful for tackling the global challenges that we currently face. Greta will show you how without optimism and hype in our scientific messaging about climate change. People retreat from the truth. They feel disempowered and helpless. Jack will round out argument by showing how the relationship between science and society is changing

"He's co hosted a few episodes of this podcast as well but we're also one of the three were also two of the three co founders of college cast which we were all talking about beforehand and one of the cool things that i've learned from him and just from being around productions in general right because he's a he's a dp videography. Is you shoot stuff on spec right so and that means we're going to get a crew of people together that for no or little money are going to shoot a commercial or shoot a short or shoot something right and bring our gear together and bring the community together to just try something and then we're gonna put it out there on our website and hopefully that will lead to new opportunities and that has always been something that i found really interesting that you sometimes don't see in traditional professionals right that that eagerness to dabble and do both of us both of you find that as well that that's been an accelerate for your business and for your podcast for all of the projects that you're working. Oh yeah i mean. I think the key for us though was learning what to even dabble in. And what like like. I said i can't highlight enough that investor dna. That i mean. I'll give you a great example. What i'm talking about. It's not my my my highest achievement. But somebody was talking about e commerce. And they're like man. There's so many businesses for sale right now in the ecommerce space in it's exploding and i was like oh cool. What are some of these. Look at this. There's a company called one hundred unicorns dot com. And i'm like oh dude. I have five daughters. Like that would be really cool. Maybe i should buy that. It's a drop shipping business. So there's no inventory to keep up with like this would be simple. I can just plug my daughter's into the process. Teach him how to run a business. This is huge. This fit so many. Good things about like what i'm about but here's what i didn't understand how much time and energy and expertise you have to have technical knowledge of how to run this actual website which i have zero of nor do i have any like inkling of desire to wanna learn so i have to outsource everything i spend eighteen months. Give or take trying to run this business trying to do this with very little time each week. Because i didn't have the time. I didn't have the expertise and ultimately i was losing a thousand two thousand dollars a month because i was having to pay everybody to run it and he's still weren't getting the kind of results that would be necessary to get off the ground so long story short that was me dabbling and not realizing all of the factors that i should have considered it so now i use that as an example to say all right russ you. We want. wanna do this one thing. Well does it fit our time commitment. Does it fit our expertise. Can we affect it in some way with our skill set or am i going to be like forced to hand off. Everything like that just helps direct us and where to dow with. If that makes any sense it does. Yeah and russ. How do you usually take that because myself with with our team at college.

And only the greatest showman in show business and tv for espn stephen smith. Our you sub man. How you doing man glad to finally be here. I'm thrilled to make it happen. You are out in la. So let's start there you talked. I was listening to you on. I take a few days ago. Talking about russell. Westbrook in the amount of pressure that's on russell westbrook. But tell me about you know how. How do you think he fits. Lebron how what are you looking for him. How does he have to changes game or does he have to change his game. Well listen. I think i think both have to modify to some degree. Lebron can't be as ball dominant as as he has been off making all the decisions. Because that's one of the reasons rusting wanna be in houston anymore as you. Well know Because he didn't want to be you know sitting on the sidelines. Playing the role of spectator being on the plane and roller spectator watching james audit. Well that's not gonna change lebron james. He's happy to be back home. He's happy to be la. He's happy to be on a title contender which he is on. We get all of that But in the end he still russell westbrook in you know credit to him. You know like. I told you we've had to be. We've all had to be critical of him at times. What we know that. He's an electrifying talent. The most athletic point guard we've ever seen in nba history. We know he's a walk in triple double and we also know. He never cheat to game with his effort when he's out on a court it's always one hundred percent and so when you look at the slow. Almost snail like pace that the lakers could could. Could you know what wouldn't prone to plan towards playing at at tom's in the past and now you've got somebody like russell westbrook all of a sudden and lebron having a night off. Ad having a night off isn't as daunting as it was the previous two years. I think that helps them during the regular season. And then i think once the postseason comes whatever it takes to win is what i think the character in russell westbrook and lebron james will do.

"One of the underrated elements of springsteen of springsteen as a for lack of a better word manager. Guess like i think that part of the reason that both east street and the other band have been so great over time is that he kind of can look at a group of people listen to their tapes and see where their strengths are and help build a band.

Not being able to read the news very well and being of mush mouth with it and eventually russ kind of got tired of it. And said i dan you start doing it and once that started. That's when he moved me out of out of the producers booth and stuck me in the studio with him and jd. and and everyone else and then are you nervous when he tells you to do the news like now you gotta read live on air and stuff like that. Is that a big deal for you at this point at first. Yeah because anytime you do something new. You're gonna have a little a little bit of anxiety because you're not used to doing it right but like with anything else you get enough reps in you start getting used to it. You get better at it you better out of the good news is i was already good at just a cold read. Yeah i pretty much read anything right in front of me But that was what russ like. He was tired of having to get clarification on something he just wanted to hear it. And then react to right opposed to be corrected after correct it and belabor the fact that you don't know what you're talking about right Type of situation so he just wanted it quicker and more succinct and that was.

That's one of my favorite simple minds songs. I put them up a level. Whatever like you say predicted them to be a big arena. Still love the your left. Not not my favorite song. But yes i still i love this and i guess i had the album and we would still listen to two okay number sixty three speaking of movie projects this when you hear this song tones on tail. The song is called go it. It really kind of exemplifies the eighties in a way. And i think it was. In grosse pointe blank. I think you just kind of play this song and it just it sounds like everything you would think of like the wacky eighties. And you know. We're in like a checkered shirt. And just everything.

The greatest album of all time. That was from south park right. Wasn't that the not gonna argue that. Okay it is a great album but even great albums you can remove us on you you would never get.

That's ever been right because they can did everything because they're just ridiculous talents. And how a lot of these guys over the years has really taken his craft seriously so if you go back like he seems now and just has worked at it so like you actually do vocal exercises. You see what he's trying to really take this seriously and instead of the beginning where it was like all right. We're just going to go into the bathroom accordion. Which is going to record this song. So there's been an evolution there. But i just always appreciated how much fun these records were even though okay like her cobain was had that concern about are going to cover me is about food. There were so many a bit of a rap songs about food time. But there's so many fun songs and for me it started. I think it started dare to be stupid but went back to two in three day and the first records okay. There's a couple of gyms on there for surely another one rides the bus until like one of the greatest things but in three d. These stupid polka party. I went in through those records and so weird like another big thing. I've never liked christmas morning. Waking up dare to be. Stupid was under mike. My little tiny tree in my room and i was like this is the greatest christmas weird al come. Have you invited him into the studio into the have not have not. There's an extreme weird al session interview whenever that hasn't happened. But i'm gonna say yet. So another fund act that we still love cyndi lauper. Girls just wanna have fun.

There's definitely no mtv and there's no eighty s if there's no longer because their presence there is so impactful in terms of the wrestling. I mean that really hurt connection to it helps bring in a whole different audience. So the rock and rex and wrestling connection. Just how both of those worlds and the mtv her music rock fans the wrestling fans the all kind of connected. They're and turns captain lou. I mean that's kind of a different level of bad s to like you know pierce your face with rubber pants. Not not your every day. So i don't i. Credit is given to that guy not been seen since.

We've a lot of electron music as well and if the mood strikes you know something i like to call a curve ball will happen. You know three four eight times over course of the show so you never know what really could happen. Gotta valentine's show for instance. The jazz singer may or may not make an appearance.
