Fresh update on "ski" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"Wife away at the Hama. Grand opening. We wrote that together. We did. I added the grand opening. That's about the only thing I can do today. Okay. Kellyanne Conway met for nearly 5 hours yesterday with investigators. January 6th committee, what do you make of that there, Jody? Well, real. But guilty pled the 5th a 150 times or she actually spoke. We don't know. Yeah, the committee did not publicly issue Conway's subpoena age refused to comment on whether she was issued one privately. I don't know. I assume she was subpoenaed. Yeah. By the way, I think wasn't she on Fox recently and someone said, you know, the Trump is pretty much the same age as Biden. And she said, oh, well, he ages differently. I'm like, right. Worse. Bag of orange trans fats with Biden's in great shape. I know. Yeah. Biden actually exercises. Oh yeah. Or unless you're paying attention to maggots. Rallies, as we went through earlier, he is alternatively. Jim Carrey did. Right. You think Biden is not alive right now? No, the guy that's doing the stand up job of trying to wake people up is an actor wearing a mask. I mean, there's several different people playing Joe Biden at this point. And when he fell up the stairs going on the airplane, I myself think that that was Jim Carrey. I've heard that he was one of them. Wait, wait, wait, wait. You think that Jim Carrey was wearing a mask and was the acting president and being silly by following up the stairs three different times. And James Woods also, I think, is one of the doppelgangers that mask wearing people. Wait, wait, wait, did she just eat all the actors that have played Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live Is that what she's thinking? Like Beck Bennett and Jim Carrey and I don't. Okay. All right, hold her rondo. She's got more thoughts. Can I just say how I know they're supposed to be? And there are sort of funny too, but they're also terrifying. These interviews, when people at Trump rallies, they're really, they're really just delusional. Yeah. Okay. All right, let's go to Evelyn in Canada, you're on with Jodi. Hello, Evelyn. Good morning, everybody. Hi. I was just going to say the harm in Minneapolis suburbs. It's a Midwestern thing. They have a terrible, really dumb habit of naming things after the cross street intersection. Okay. Which means it's probably at the intersection of harm harm and we know what it is. It's named after the husband and wife Harold and Marie. They're the ones who built the place. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. Okay. But living in Chicago for ten years, everything was named like, you know, golf ski, get the corner of golf in pulaski. We have a few of those here in the office. I used to live right off pulaski. Did you whack her? I barely know her. All right, that was funny. Is that have a great day? You know what? We have a largest population of really immature people. I think in the world, everyone wants to participate this morning and making the show even stupider. I think in Hollywood there's a cold bee liquor, which is on the corner of colfax and riverton. Here's what I want to know. We will be naming

It's Over for the Donkeys
"We're so close to the November 8th election. I am absolutely giddy. I can't even hide it. I can't lie to you. I won't lie to it. I lied to you. I think I wouldn't lie to you anyway. But I think it's over for the donkeys. We're gonna get into it. At least for this term. And then we're gonna have to fight like hail to make sure that we restore this constitutional republic, not a democracy, as Biden said, 37 times in his speech, but a constitutional republic. We don't have a democracy. This is not mob rule. I understand that democracy is our voting process where everyone gets to play a part in this great country and in our system, but we don't have a democracy. We don't have mob rule mob rule is what we would have seen in 2020 when Black Lives Matter Inc and antifa moms across the country tried to scare us all into voting one way or staying home. That's not what that's not what we have. That is that's a democracy or that would be a democracy. We have a constitutional republic and what we're going to do on November 8th is fight to restore that constitutional republic. And I think the I think the Democrats are in for some trouble and listen, I don't want to get up, I don't want to get in front of my skis as they say. All of the polling doesn't matter unless you show up to vote. And unless you take somebody with you. But I am, I am confident that we are going to, listen, I think the house is a foregone conclusion. We're still fighting for governorships across the country. We're still fighting and some of these Senate races, but I do believe the polling is lacking when it comes to Republicans a little bit even traffic. The one of the best polars, if not the best polar and the entire country has admitted as much, but the numbers look good and as long as you show up at least we can stop the bleeding or slow the bleeding.
J. D. Vance Reacts to Last Night's Speech by Joe Biden
"Hey listen I don't want to get out ahead of my skis here I know you're busy on the campaign trail but I feel great about your race I think you guys are doing a great job in the closing days So last night Joe Biden gave another disastrous speech I bet your opponent Tim Ryan and others would have wished it didn't happen But what a wasted opportunity JD I mean he could have addressed the problems you're dealing with there in Ohio You know opioid abuse public safety the fed no crisis the border crisis And it's not what he did He chose to talk about the mega mango whatever semi fascist or whatever nonsense This guy's just he's got to be dragging down everyone across the country Yeah it's the weirdest thing and of course he's made Nancy Pelosi sort of the centerpiece of the Democrats campaign down the stretch here That's not going to get a lot of independence out to vote for the Democrats Here's the thing that I think he's trying to do Dan just to try to play not devil's advocate but to understand what they're trying to do I think Democrats are looking at the early voting numbers and they realize that it is catastrophic It's not just that they're not appealing to independence They're also not even appealing to their own base And so I think this was a partisan rant It was an effort to turn out the democratic base because even they are not doing what you know it's just not going to work not enough people care about what the Democrats say is a threat to democracy The real threat is democracy is the tech industry I think censoring political speech that's not something that Democrats are interested in talking about And I just don't think they're going to be able to turn out their people with a message focused on something that happened two years ago
Rep. Chip Roy: Hispanics Are Flocking to Republicans
"Covered in my first hour How I've run for office I lost you one I didn't get it done Couldn't cross the finish line But you know when you run a couple of times you get the process kind of down and you see a lot of things other people don't get to see him I have not seen an electoral environment turn in the Republicans favor Like this since the Tea Party And I think what's about to happen in 12 days congressman I think it could be I want to get ahead of my skis here but I think it could be worse They're panicking over D plus 12 D plus 13 districts The Democrats Well you're exactly right I mean I think you can look at a couple of the bellwether races and you can see what's going on right The race is down in South Texas or a perfect example where you've got three Hispanic women running one of them is my dear friend Cassie Garcia Running against guys like Henry cuellar who am I like It's a friend of mine but still supports Nancy Pelosi and a radical left And Cathy's running on a strong border security message She's married to a border patrol agent She's strong on border security not afraid to talk about it And Hispanics are flocking in that direction If you look at Northern Virginia and you look at jasla Vega against Abigail bamberger another one where Abigail she's a friend of mine I've worked with her on Bing But again she supports Nancy Pelosi And what you have there is she's running abortion ads I mean they're so out of touch And so out of step with where the average American is right now in terms of what the impact is on their families with respect to inflation with respect to energy costs with respect to crime with respect to what's happening with fentanyl in our community And they're just way out of touch and that radical left is just getting I think that's going to shine on election day and I think it's going to be a big night for the GOP
U.K.'s Disaster Is a Warning For the U.S.
"Right? I mean, and I think that we need to have this discussion about whether or not what happened in the UK could actually happen here at home. The one thing we've got going for us, of course, is that we are the world's reserve currency, which enables us to do things that other countries like the UK can't really do. I mean, she had good intentions and I'm a big believer in lowering taxes in order to stimulate the economy. The question is, can you afford it at that point in time? I tend to be of the belief that typically during challenging economic periods sometimes that lower tax environment is what helps to give a little back to the people. I would point out, then that when the previous administration, Donald Trump lowered taxes, we actually had the highest tax revenues on record in the history of this country. What do you know? Now most people who don't like lower taxes, of course, would dispute that. As for Liz trust, she did it at a time when the Bank of England really didn't have the proper support or the ability to properly support her either. It's one of the reasons why these central banks can't get out over their skis like ours has by printing so much money because then what do you do when the chips are down, right? If you don't leave any powder dry. So I think we need to think about the ramifications of this already. You're seeing some fear in the markets that certainly been reflected in our markets and you have only to look at the yields on treasuries, which keep going up. There was one of the fed governors out making the rounds on TV on a financial network recently. And he basically indicated that they haven't been able to curb this enough. It's what I've been telling you all along. No, they haven't been able to curb it enough. They haven't been able to get a hold of inflation. That's in part due to the fact that they printed so much money, increasing the money supply for so darn long. I mean, you're talking somewhere around $7 trillion got pumped into the economy since March of 2020. What do you think

World's 1st space tourist signs up for flight around moon
"The world's first space tourist wants to go back into space In 2001 Dennis Tito became the first person to pay his own way for a ride on the International Space Station I'd been there done that The now 82 year old tells the AP he and his wife signed up for spin around the moon on Elon Musk's starship Any time you fly in space you're taking a risk And it may be that you know 99% chance you come back but there's a 1% chance you don't Tito sold his investment company almost two years ago He won't say how much he's paying His space station flight costs $20 million I saved up my money over the years and this is one of the things I'm doing just like somebody else might be going skiing No date has been set Tito says the contract with SpaceX includes an option for flight within 5 years He would be 87 by then I'm Ed Donahue
Miranda Devine and Charlie Discuss Hunter's Potential Indictment
"Let me kind of tell you my theory that we have here and we've been kind of saying this for a couple of months. Basically, I think this is first and foremost an attempt to try to have the FBI look cleaner ahead of the midterms. Secondly, they want to look more neutral coming into an oversight blitz that will likely happen if Republicans flip the House and the Senate or and or the Senate. Also, I think it's going to put Joe Biden in a political penalty box coming into 2024 is that they can have a Gavin Newsom or someone much more likeable, but kind of most importantly, I think that it is a way to try to set the table to indict Donald Trump. I think the evidence against Hunter Biden is so overwhelming. They're going to use this as a first step to then go after Trump. Miranda, what are your thoughts? There's a lot to unpack there. Obviously, this the leaks to The Washington Post just like the leaks earlier to CNN are part of a strategy again. Being played to shape the narrative ahead of any charges are already plea deal coming up. Now, we've known for many months at what was coming out of Delaware. It is always going to be a slap on the wrist. And the most obvious part of that is the fact that they never called Toni bolinsky, who would be your key witness, if you really wanted to get to the bottom of the Biden family influence peddling scheme when it came to China, particularly, which is probably the most important in terms of our national security, definitely. So, and you know, Charlie bubbling ski was never subpoenaed, never called before that grand jury in Delaware. So instantly that tells you that they were not interested, they were deliberately refusing to follow any lines of inquiry that would lead to The White House to Joe Biden, which effectively means the whole influence peddling scheme is off the table. And you see that from the Lake to The Washington Post. It's just about tax evasion. It's just about a gun charge albeit a felony gun charge, pretty serious. People have gone to jail for lying on that background check for. But really, the tax charges, the question you have to ask you, if hunter has paid back as we're told $2.8 million worth of taxes unpaid taxes to the IRS. Where did that money come from?

Brad Pitt Is Dating Emily Ratajkowski
"Speaking of great bodies, you know, I posted the story. I put this on the podcast days ago. Actually, two weeks ago, I said, Brad Pitt is dating Emily radical ski. It came and went because there was no proof that I was right. Now it's being written up in every newspaper and website that they're dating. They keep it at low key because, you know, she's just come out of a bad marriage and Brad's coming out of his hell hole with Angelina, but I had it two weeks ago. And I said, yeah, all right, they're together. He's gorgeous. She's hot. It's going to be a great relationship. But people are like, they don't want to, they don't all have to talk about this. They don't know what to say about this. Well, I don't know, you know, Brad quietly dated the last couple of years. He worries about Angelina. It's going to be bad mouth them to their kids and, you know, more than she already has. If she has a serious girlfriend, it's going to get really bad and Emily's coming out of the marriage and she can still get in trouble with what she no. It's not that way at all. I mean, first of all, if these two are going to be more serious, they're going to have to wait because Brad's got some messy bullshit with Angelina. You know, they got a way to walk. I mean, he's still fighting with her over custody of four of the 6 children. If I was him, I'd take one. I would take Shiloh, that's it. The rest of them, the adopted ones, get go. Go to your mother, go to Angelina. I don't want the adopted kids, especially packs, can't stand that little prick kid.
This Is the Worst Time of Year for Golf
"There's nothing going on in golf right now. From right now until the end of the year is the worst time of the year. I don't even know why they have golf tournaments. I don't know. Like when the old people are schedule when the old tour schedule entered at the tour championship from Hawaii to church. We had three months off. Guys, when skiing, they broke their legs.

Going on to keep playing golf. This is a golf pot, by the way. Yeah, it is.
James Rosen Surprised by Karine Jean-Pierre's Lackluster Defense
"James, I want to go back to yesterday. We were playing some of the audio a lot of the audio, were you surprised that other reporters were asking questions about that big gap involving the late congresswoman walrus? No, I think it was a market moment. And I don't think that the repertoire instincts of any reporter who's accredited by The White House correspondents association who sits in that room every day would fail to be aroused by a moment like that. So I'm not surprised that it was a focus of sustained questioning. I was surprised that The White House communications team thought that the answer crafted for Korean Jean Pierre to issue which she did with metronomic repetition that the late congresswoman Jackie willow ski was top of mind for the president. She was simply top of mind. And that's understandable that she might be top of mind. I think that was surprising that the communications team thought that that would suffice. Frankly, the other path available to the communications team and to Colleen Jean Pierre was simply to say that the president was spoke. He regrets that error. And that all of us sometimes laps in this age of digital sensory overload. And I think that would have let the oxygen out of that issue early on.

White House: Late congresswoman 'top of mind' in Biden flub
"The White House is trying to explain a flub by President Biden at a hunger conference As the president called out lawmakers who worked on addressing childhood hunger Jackie are you here Where's Jackie I didn't think she was gonna be here Referring to Indiana's Jackie will lure ski who died in a car crash last month Biden spokeswoman karine Jean Pierre faced repeated questions about the flub and said the president had a lower ski on his mind He had already planned to welcome the congresswoman's family to The White House on Friday There will be a bill signing in her honor And gave the same answer repeatedly She was on top of mind and she was a top of mind Again I don't think it's all that unusual to have someone top of mind As the questions continued My answer is certainly not going to change Jean Pierre did not acknowledge that the president misspoke Sagar Meghani Washington
Always Accuse the Enemy of What You Yourself Are Doing
"Our listeners reminded me, of course, we've done multiple programs on this, but it's sometimes you have to go through it because you have listeners that come in and out and also memories, unfortunately, are not as sharp as we would like them to be. Saul linsky saw linsky was of course a luciferian political organizer. I don't say that lightly. He wrote the dedication to the book rules for radicals. He was a community organizer to Lucifer. The first rebel Hillary Clinton wrote her senior thesis dedicated to solid ski. And there were 13 rules get at 13 rules for radicals as he would call it. The left follows these rules very closely and carefully. Every conservative should become deeply aware of Salisbury rules for radicals. That, and of course, the prince by Machiavelli, neo machiavellianism actually turned into alinsky ism. And one of the rules right there is right in front of you. Which is always accuse the enemy of what you yourself are doing. The rules are this. Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have, the number one. Number two, never go outside the expertise of your people. They're violating some of these rules, by the way. Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Number four make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. Number 5, ridicule is man's most potent weapon. 6 a good tactic is one that people enjoy. 7, a tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Number 8, keep the pressure on, never let up. Number 9, the threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. Number ten, the major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. Number 11, if you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive. Number 12, the price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative, a number 13, which is one of the most important. Pick a target, freeze it personalize it polarizing. That's exactly what they're trying to do to Donald Trump right now.

"On the site, their slopes and ski down 8 o'clock in the evening in the moonlight, I think it's a wonderful thing to do. Whether it's allowed, I think it'll be allowed, I think it will be slightly restricted. Yeah, I mean talking about the owners of apres ski bars, a mutual friend of ours, Andre Russell, who owns their bar Kiba in town to play self had many great evenings. I noticed I don't often go on to Facebook, but he had a post on Facebook a little while ago, which was really a kind of lament to the end of season worker life. And I think there have been a lot of challenges in relation to Brexit and recruitment. I wondered what your insight would be on that? Yeah, it's a minefield, really. I'm not sure the podcast long enough to have all my company to lose. No, the obvious fallout of Brexit is quite quite bad in terms of UK citizens being able to work in Europe. There's been a few things I think in the press that there's the option to be able to do it in France, but that's still a very long winded and quite expensive way with no certainty or guarantee at the end of it. I've actually getting these work permits. We've got the same situation in Austria where they're only issue issuing a certain number of permits for seasonal workers and UK now falls under the third national third nation country or whatever they call it that not part of the EU. So not entitled to come and work there, which obviously takes away tons of jobs. We employ about 40 to 50 people in the Alps each winter. And this year, we're only looking for people with EU passports because it's just such a long, complicated, quite expensive process to go just to get a work permit. And then to be told that they're only going to give work permits probably to qualified qualified applicants so like the chefs, for example, that have an actual qualification for your sort of Shelley host, which is obviously a really important job. That we employ for. They don't class it as a recognized qualification in a job. So they're probably only going to be giving out permits for chefs, maybe maybe managers, maybe people with a particular skill set. But otherwise it's going to be quite tricky. And obviously more expensive for UK based operators to go about it. It almost sounds like the travel situation. Every country seems to have their own rules in place. There's no consistency across all of Europe, which makes it difficult for a company like yours in a gloomy drive away or employing people in France and in austere as well. So a lot of challenges are overall. Well, you know, I hope that with as with the travel within COVID, which has become simpler, maybe we find that as time passes being a third world country in the eyes of a year or third category country in terms of the EU, it will become easier to employ people. Hopefully, Andy you'll come back and give us some snow reports during the season and that data somehow things are going. Love too. Yep. Excellent. Okay, I'm just going to move on now. Regular listeners are recall I hosted a forum at the recent ski launch event for the industry last month. And one of our sessions had a focus on the Olympics. At Graham bell and Emily sarsfield with me, both of whom have been guests on the podcast before. Now the sound quality isn't so good on this, but I think it's still worth listening to. So.

"You could you could afford but it was the one that you could just do everything on all the time it was the one ski needed was it was. It was back when we were all sleeping on. People's floors have been kind of living. Yeah we talk about what people might describe as an old mountain ski that type of. Yeah now it'd be an all mountain ski and it. Was you know fat skiing early. Sept- pistol days. What else is around. Talk one ten one twenty. And when when i kind of started playing we reverse cam and rocker. That was when everything really started to make sense. Because i was pretty much the only brand really that light stiff skis. He i liked. I had a lot of friends early on were identities in canada early on in my life so i i had a lot of friends in north america as well and canadians. Just love. straight ski. So let's case brought out early on with stiff and straight and when you've got reverse cambe for example reverse gamba is basically the shape of soft skied. Deforms too so it will flight. So if you press a scheme with reverse camber you don't actually need to flex any further the any reason you want to flex any further is to make it a little bit forgiving. So it's not kicking the back and we'll talk paps Now to visualize what you talking now. In fact shimmer kind of in the lead of innovation through all of that time with the different elements bringing whether it's a the width of the ska- or the rockers or reverse camera cetera. I mean you mentioned the sense. Seth stole there seemed. Remember about those skis with hand great graphics and as a key paul of all of your range as now you know you or design a how did he go about actually deciding which which graphics to put on this case because that must have been a massive physician. It was quite easy. Actually because decision. I want to do this. I'm doing this. I didn't have you know. Massive sales teams report to didn't have a marketing team. Here everyone to kinda give feedback on everything and by the time it happened over. of doesn't seven thousand eight. We started getting sales guys on board And it started growing ganley and at that point a run kind of has input and at that point you kind of you have to fight for the design you do and where. They came from early on early on. I mean i was growing up in melbourne. Say there's a lot of street art london at a time. There was a lot of street out as well. And i used to just to go on travels and go on trips and just inspired by what was happening around me and at the time to let the early thousands. They wasn't any skis interesting graphics. On apart from jamie strachan doing stuff vocal so Early explosives are with the wizards on. I'm all that stuff. He did some amazing art and again he was part of that. Uk scene at the time of people to be pushing industry. Yeah jamie strategy. Mentioned him in a downstairs in downstairs lou here. I've got a couple of pieces from the The sham gem from back in the day that was hey stuff. I think wasn't it and it really stands out brilliant stuff. Yeah he did amazing work and there was a few other brands going to go down as well. Rosie had a whole series of obstacles fantastic. And i think when you're when you're starting a business it's easy to see everyone out there as competitors because you really fighting for like i needed re-sale god i need to build this business kind of thing but my viewpoint was very different.

You know that really exciting time when british free skiing or a a free riding is really starting develop a you mentioned warren as well and yet you know we just such an exciting time and it's interesting to see how it said how it's developed and really faction skis kind of road with that. I'd say to a certain degree yet. A lot of it came out of it. Because i had so many friends in the english would stay Snow sports scene and one of them. In particular geico phil martin who is english but now living in the states Entirely think he the first person. When i found this little factory in just south of evian who wanted to make skis and my background was in product design product design degree before i moved into graphics And i contacted phil and phil when officers really cool.

We opener for and it was really quite vertical. So very very technical. Now this waste the austrians all these big european teams were able to go and build the like for like on their own snow now. We didn't have access to that so always a little bit kind of behind. I managed to kind of make friends a few people and jump in every now and then on a couple of them but this probably in a way helps us out.

It seems a bit strange after year. a yearlong delighted the twenty twenty olympics. But it does mean. There's now lessons six months or about six months until the winter olympics in beijing. And the reason. I say emily and jasmine to join me today. Is that both of them. Have competed professionally and jasmine still is the highest level. And say let's not offer a little chat about jasmine. What event in the winter olympics. Will you be most looking forward to watching. I always enjoy the outpoint obvious reasons but will say the ski jumping cross country skiing. Olivet really excellent cross country skiing. Paps has the the closest set with your telemarketing events. Logical combination is probably a combination of three mentioned size. Probably why enjoy watching knows. But it has downhill element of our point that we have free heo of ski jumping and cross country. So it's very much the blend votes ice right. Okay and emily represented. Great britain in the scarecrow set the winter olympics. I i'm going to take a guess me though it will eventually be looking forward to watching. Yeah i mean ski crosses that kind of a adrenaline sport where it's a little bit like the hundred sprint. Where the first one across the finish line wins. So you don't really need to know much about it to kind of grasping is a spectator. So yeah it's always a good one to watch so i'll be looking forward to that oversee all my fellow p. Is sippy competed. Rival being their so called friends competing. But also i didn't i. I love the olympics. Because the so much kind of you get to see on your regula tv screen. So that's obsolete glued to the screen right now but in your think also i'll be looking for the brits and we've got like probably the strongest kind of fresh team we've ever had taken to a game Maybe the biggest depth and talent. We've we've had as well so that'll be really interesting to see where the brits kind of like. Yeah end up because we're not normally no those winter sports but now we've got world champions. We've got people who regularly run. Welcome jobs won't the olympics because events on the olympics and there's many kind of like athletes up there who are going to be good in for a medal so i think that'd be really cool to see that i mean you're roy and certainly ambitions for snow. Sports are very high. I did actually get a press. Release yesterday which i haven't looked at in so much. Data have announced the teams the free ski and snowboard squirts after this winter.
