"saudi government" Discussed on No Laying Up
"It just when it's presented so dishonestly by Phil, it calls his entire case into question if you ask me. It's not in good faith. Like whatever he's doing here. Very clearly. He's trying to leverage the Saudi government to reshape the way PGA Tour is doing their business. At age 51, he earned $95 million has a pension worth how much and he's claiming he wants to reshape the way the PGA Tour is done. And what God let me keep going a little bit here because it starts to paint a little bit clearer picture of maybe why Phil needs some money. Turner sports had to pay the tour a $1 million licensing fee, each of the times Phil has teed it up in an iteration of the match, though Mickelson himself has made upwards of $15 million from the franchise and Phil says, I don't want to say it's infuriating, but it's definitely more than frustrating. He said of having to pay the rights fee. A bigger deal is that the players don't own highlights of their own shots. Each of these moments potentially could be turned into an NFT and sold to fans or collectors and then parentheses says, over the last year, more than $600 million worth of MBA NFTs have been sold with the 5% transaction fees being split evenly among every player in the league, numerous NFC NFTs of NBA players have sold for prices in the 6 figures. So if the NBA pausing here, if the NBA has 6 has sold $600 million worth of NFTs and the players get 5% of other players right, they sold it so the players split 5% of that amount. What's the math on that? How does it still get to $20 billion in digital assets the PGA Tour has? It's like $30 million, which is less than this year's pip. Which is less than 20 billion as well. Correct. The tour is sitting. That's the NBA. Yes. Yes. More popular organization in the PGA Tour. Continuing on the tour is sitting on multiple billions of dollars worth of NFTs, Mickelson said during our chat. They're sitting on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of digital content. We could be using for our social media feeds. The players need to own all of that. We played those shots. We created those moments. We should be the ones to profit the tour doesn't need that money. They are already sitting on $800 million cash stockpile. How do you think they're funding the pip or investing $200 million in the European tour? The tour is supposed to be a nonprofit that distributes money to charity, how the fuck is it legal for them to have that much cash on hand. The answer is it's not, but they always want more and more. They have to control everything through ego, won't allow them to make the concessions they need to. Which, as I read that again, the whole everything you say about the tour, I just wanted to flip on him. That's what I was gonna say. It's like, yo, you go. But also like, you are the tour. You are the tour. He tries to create we've talked about this last couple of weeks of trying to create this personality for the tour that is, you know, again, like we've said many times like the tour is designed to get money for the players. So what he's pissed about is the fact that they're distributing that equally relatively equally among the tour players regardless of your stature within the game based on results which again. I think it goes back to the tour's structure. Of being a membership organization that has to treat all members equally. And I mean, there's a lot to pick out in there. We actually got to a lot of this stuff last week before he even said the quiet part out loud here, but I don't think we really need to rehash why a league can't give all of its media rights to its players and that doesn't fucking make sense. And again, feels like I thought a pretty smart dude and I'm sure there's some warped backwards way that he's made that make sense in his head, but dude, I don't get how that could possibly work. I mean, it sounds like he's advocating for, all right, yeah, like if I can make another $60 million off of my highlights, but that structure impedes the tour for making hundred $100 million off of it. He is totally cool with that. Yes. He will, yes, he will cannibalize, the whole structure of the tour is built off these rights things. Again, we've talked about this last several weeks. You can't sell the rights to CBS NBC ESPN and then also turn around and be like, hey, players also do whatever you want with your own rights. That's not how leagues work. Tom Brady doesn't own his touchdown passes. LeBron doesn't own his dunks. That's not how it works. And also, again, I just want to reiterate this. He says they're sitting on an $800 million cash stockpile. We have reached out to tour context that said, even before the pandemic, it was not even near half of that, and those reserves were used specifically when the tour needed an emergency fund to pay out players, you know, during a series of events that weren't allowed to have fans and the entire pandemic was cropped up by a reserve fund held for this exact reason. And go on the tours website and look how many open jobs there are. They're having trouble even attracting anybody to work for them because they're not paying anybody anything. Yes. So continuing on, but are his grievances fueled by money or principle with Mickelson, you can never be sure, given the massive scale of his gambling losses detailed elsewhere in the book, which again you can pre order. The Saudi seduction might be born of necessity. Mickelson, who's $94 million in career PGA Tour earnings is second only to that of Tiger Woods, raised eyebrows when he sold his Gulf Stream in 2019. This is an angle. The pausing for a second. There's an angle I have not thought of yet. I honestly didn't even know he did that. I don't follow. Yeah, the quote here says he loved that plane so much. It was like his fourth child said someone very close to Mickelson. I was absolutely shocked that he sold it. The only reason I could possibly imagine him doing it was him feeling serious financial pressure. Phil and his wife Amy have purchased land in Jupiter, island in Florida, and they have been interviewing architects. Phil may yet get the haven from state. It's like Citizen Kane shit, man. Just driving everybody away, building this big ass mansion, xanadu. Filmmaking. Just thinking, what do I feel sled is going to be? Spoiler alert, the rosebuds just let. Phil may yet get the haven from state income tax. He has long lusted after. John Feinstein writer said, I was interviewing him one time. He said, propria of nothing, you always think of me as a right winger, but I'm actually pretty liberal in social issues like abortion. I said, but your number one issue is taxes. He said, no, no, no, no. My number one, two, three, four, 5 issues are all taxes. So yeah, pausing there is just to say, listen, again, we've made this point, but Phil, not acting like a guy who has a lot of money right now. And on top of the 94 $95 million he's made on course. The guys made $50 million a year for at least the last 20 years in endorsements. Like all in with, you know, yeah, endorsements on course earnings, all of it. It's a lot. I don't know what it is. The Forbes article that's out there said in 2016, he made $53 million, which again is probably not a peak earning year for him in 2016. Pat Perez had interviews. And he basically went in and he's like, yo, Phil's made close to close to a $1 billion in his career. It's wild that he needs this money this badly. Phil also had some comments back in 2013, made very public comments about new tax laws in California and how he was paying 62 63% of his income. I just didn't know that the PGA Tour in that monahan specifically were making him live in California. That was news to me also. I don't know how the whole thing just feels like when he's putting the system on trial, man. When you start getting the Saudis toss out 9 figures, right? It's like, all right, then they work their way back. All right, how do we make this seem logical or how do we sell this to everybody else? That's all it really feels like, honestly. This is taking so long to get through that we actually do have to take a break. I don't know when it's going to take longer to get through and.

"saudi government" Discussed on The Young Turks
"What is this the taliban what is it al qaeda is it. The saudi government is it the mola's in iran. Who are we talking about. This is supposed to be a secular country. it's in our constitution. we shall not establish a religion. I'm not in your religion. I don't believe the savings you believe. I'm so tired of saying it. But the bible pro-abortion five eleven through thirty one. You're not even write about your religion. This is all an effort to subjugate women so no and also let me okay. Let me give you whose exact statement this is. The last graphic he says our creator endowed us with the right to life and yet millions of children lose their right to life every year because of abortion. Because you know governor. Greg abbott care so much about people's lives the guy who supports the deregulated privatized energy grid that killed people during a winter storm recently because they didn't weatherize their equipment to withstand the winter storm The same guy who had no problems spreading disinformation regarding corona virus Who had no problem. Prematurely opening up businesses as new cases of corona virus You know new coronavirus cases had increased significantly. The guy who had no problem spreading disinformation about mask wearing which clearly saved people's lives. Those who actually listened and wore masks were far less likely to contract the virus and get hospitalized or die as a result of covid. I mean yeah. This guy allegedly cares about people's lives. Give me a break. I'm just so sick of the right wing trying to pretend like this is question of life or death for them when in reality. It's thirty two reasons why republican lawmakers pushed for antiabortion laws. It's not about religion and it's not about the right to life. None of that matters to them. It's about number one punishing women and controlling them so they don't have the ability to make decisions about their own bodies but also number two and we shouldn't discount this. It's about pandering to evangelical voters who had no problem with someone is discussing. Donald trump breaking all of their rules. Right but pretend like they care about the issue of abortion. Yeah.

White House to release new guidelines after Khashoggi intel report
"Covert deaths, a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Solomon often referred to his NBS approved of the 2018 killing of journalists, Jamal Kashiwagi, the officials saying that the report by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, Deanna In coordination with the CIA, concluding that the crown prince approved in likely erred erred, ordered the murder of Kashiwagi, who's washing post column had criticized the crown Prince CNN, NBC and Reuters are among those news organizations reporting that the group which had assassinated and dismembered this Saudi dissident, then flew to Istanbul on private jets owned by a company previously seized by the Middle Eastern kingdoms, Controversial MBS. But at the White House today, this question to press secretary Jen Psaki said. When they Talk that the president won't hold back. Will he be following up this talk with actions are sanctions on the table. E think there are a range of actions that are on the table. But the first step is the next step. I should say it's for the president to speak with the king. We expect that to happen very soon. As you know, we've committed to the release of an unclassified report that would come out from Deanna and not from the White House on. Of course, our administration is focused on recalibrating the relationship as we've talked about in here previously, and certainly there are areas where we will express concerns on and leave open the option of accountability. There also areas where we will continue to work with Saudi Arabia. Given the threats they face in the region. Well, hold up to the phone call. Is the king avoiding your calls? I don't think that's the characterization. The president has a busy schedule. The king. Obviously, I can't speak to his schedule. I'm not his spokesperson, but we expect the call to happen very soon. I think there was an inaccurate reporting about being confirmed when it wasn't a confirmed call. Yet if you have made clear that the president's gonna be speaking with his counterpart with it came with the Crown prince. But given the Crown princess role in the future of the kingdom, and that he is expected to be implicated here, why not speak to the person I expect to be responsible? Well, I think the president's conversation will cover a range of topics with the king. There's obviously A lot to discuss with Saudi Arabian with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, And as I noted, a previously noted the conferences have been engaged with his appropriate counterparts. The president will be engaged with his appropriate counterparts, and we're engaged at many levels with leaders in Saudi Arabia. So will the conferences counterparts here, But often he's teaching him about this issue that he spoke with him last week. They did a readout. I don't think I have anything more about their call from today's White House briefing. We should Point out during a September 2019 interview with CBS is Norah O'Donnell for 60 Minutes. Piece, the Saudi Crown prince denying any knowledge of Jamal cash. Augie's death his answers through a translator. The world wants the answer to this question. How did you not know about this operation about that? Some think that I should know what three million people working for the Saudi government do daily. It's impossible that the three million would send their daily reports to the leader or the second highest person in the Saudi government. Two of your closest advisors, who are accused of orchestrating this plot were fired by the king removed. From your inner circle. The question is, How could you not know if this was carried out by people who are close to you? The only doctors today the investigations are being carried out and once charges are proven against someone, regardless of their rank, it will be taken to court. No exception made. I've read what the Saudi prosecutor has said about those that are charged in this murder. And it's gruesome the details when you heard that people close to you and in your government carried out such a grisly murder, and that the American government thinks that you ordered it. What did you think I could be the godmother of Lord Coffee, Mother, Cutie. I believe what you mentioned is not correct. There isn't an official statement announced by the American government in this rig. Heart. There isn't clear information or evidence that someone close to me did something to that effect their charges and they're being investigated. But again, you cannot imagine the pain that we suffered, especially as the Saudi government from a crime such as this one. That from September of 2019 the interview available at CBS news dot com, and you heard the Saudi Crown Prince to a translator. Again the headline today a new declassified version of the U.

Report to blame Saudi Crown Prince for death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi

It also comes as President Biden plans his first call to Saudi Arabia, King Salman Former national security adviser John Bolton told Bloomberg News. On top of the killing of two Sugi dynamics in the Middle East have changed. Well. Last night. Axios reported that Biden plans to call the king today that coming before the release the head of the oven intelligence report about the murder of the journalist remark, a show G. What do you know about this report? I don't. I don't. I don't know exactly what report it is And if it's Related anything that I saw when I was in the government. I won't talk about it. But I will say this. This is this is ah, moment of truth. I think for buying if if he wants to have a fundamentally different relationship with Saudi Arabia, I think it's a reflection that he thinks he can have a fundamentally different relationship with Iran. And I think That part of the premises. Incorrect. As long as the Ayatollahs are in tower. Nobody could don's the murder show. Nobody has any doubt that the Saudi government was involved in it. This is a this is a matter of realpolitik. In in that region way need the Saudis and they need us When I was in Moscow, once meeting with President Putin, he just he thought of his real humorous. Subject that we might turn away from the Saudis, and he said to me, Look, if you don't want to sell them weapons, That's fine. I'll sell them weapons. Now. The CIA assessed that NBS personally ordered the killing and a United Nations investigator found in June of 2019. It was inconceivable that NBS was not aware. The killing, of course. Yogi. White House Press secretary Jen Psaki said last week that President Biden is working to re calibrate the American relationship with Saudi Arabia and plans to communicate with King Salman, which is his counterpart instead of his son, the Crown prince.

It's one of the most unusual portrait of Unexpressed repressed grief that I have ever seen in the cinema. And I'll explain that. What makes it doubly interesting is how it puts the viewer right in the forefront of the characters own grief by putting you the viewer. Actually, through the traumatic experience of the main characters in real time on screen. In other words, the movie begin. The movie actually begins with this extended sequence in real time involving childbirth, and that's all I really want to say in terms of plot because a lot of this has to be discovered is this movie goes along, but it's a harrowing and intense sequence. And as I mentioned, it's done, and it's shown in real time so because the audience is put through the mill, the six Periods were right there in the room with this couple and midwife, the couple's play by Shyla buff and Vanessa Kirby and the midwife has played by Molly Parker, all of whom are really excellent. This movie. We can then emotionally relate that much more and sympathize and empathize that much more with the emotional aftermath and anguish of this event and how these characters including the mother, Of the woman giving childbirth just brilliantly played by Ellen burst, and I mean she's so always so good. She gets better. She ages anyway, but way get to empathize with them in their processing of this experience. So this is a movie about a family dealing with grief and inconsolable loss and how it affects them after the fact in their marriage and their professional lives and their friendships, and it is just it's powerful. It's based on a play that the screenwriter Kata Weber Adapted for the screen, and the opening is very strong stuff. But if you stick with the film and you brave your way through that sequence, you'll be rewarded with an impressive and and memorable, very memorable drama. I keep thinking about it. I saw it weeks ago on it leaves you thinking as well because of the issues that it brings up and emotionally rewarded as well. It's called pieces of a woman. Okay, But here's the thing about that is we're really upset this week. It's been a hard hard wheat him. I don't know if you were listening earlier pen and I got a big fight on there anyway.

"Time and who make critical decisions on their behalf. That is one area that that the Saudi government has also sought to reform. And so that's where you see the hypocrisy and really it. It just goes to show that Crown Prince Mohammed is a man wants to be the only reformer in the kingdom. There is no place for others to really partner in this vision in this what he calls modernization. What is the significance of this sentencing coming when it when it does 2.5 years after she was first jail? So I mean, at this point. The conviction at this at this time especially is is definitely a strategy by the Saudi authorities to try and, you know, minimize the global attention to the case. You know she's been convicted, treating the holy days when they're banking on the world, not paying attention to this. It is unclear why they had rushed. Her trial s so quickly the terrorism court after it had been suspended for a year and a half after she had been jailed for two years and a half and have been subjected to torture and sexual assault and harassment. And so this rushing of her trial at the terrorism court, which is which is victorious and quite abusive and where unfair trials have been rampant. Really just goes to show that you know they Saturday government fused woman's rights activism is a form of terrorism him, But were you surprised by this sentence? Or is it basically what you expected? We were definitely surprised because in the in the, uh in the previous week's as they were crushing the case and the terrorism court Um you know, the international community he had really come together on really shown solidarity and machines case. We know that the Saudi government is seeking to be seen as a modernizing force. As as you know, our progressive country on the on the international stage. We know that they are sensitive to their global Am bitch. And we really did hope that that this kind of international pressure from you and experts from diplomats around the world and human rights organizations when believed to her immediate release, and then so this is definitely quite disappointing. This is no victory in any way and really, it is a message to any other activists within the country and even abroad of the consequences that they could face. They don't told the line.

Of course the news stories around the world was he was the washington post journalist. I think that the certainly attributed to the visibility.

I I don't know. but none the less it ought to be for us. and we shouldn't be placing trade or getting overly optimistic. any more on trade US China trade any more than we should all be an overly optimistic on. or pessimistic warning. despite all the talk about impeachment. let's get away from the news a little bit in our thinking and I wish traders would do that an analyst would do that. we have to step away from it. hi to step into that that. world of truth which I know we don't like to get into too much in the news media but we need to somehow make a transition. in the truth. so be very very careful as we look at all of this is a lot going on yes and a lot of it is just what we should be the I'll say this I said that's the only way we're going to have a trade deal with China is with major compromise on China and if it doesn't come from China that means is coming the compromise is coming from the US and if the compromise comes to the U. S. would be a huge mistake I think one of the places for optimism would be Japan and the trade the preliminary trade agreement that we've already reached with Japan that's something that we should get excited about and I didn't see any coverage on it I will say in defense of the cover CNBC did cover the signing of the Japan trade agreement and talk about it I'm not sure whether fox business state or not I don't usually watch that but it may have. but I I don't know where you know there's some optimism there and there should be particularly in light that both Japan and the USA that we are going to be hammering now and talking about a a deal a trade deal one another the bigger piece of it I think it's seventy two billion of autos and auto parts that would be huge and that certainly is a lot more hi there should be a lot more optimism in around that that we should be focusing on not US China trade I don't think we should be talking about China I don't think you should be bringing we should be bring it up unless it has something to do with what's going on in Hong Kong that is current news at some we can bring on talk about the other night let's forget about the whole trade deal with China let's just assume we've got to go about the business in the markets is assuming it's never going to happen and if it happens it becomes a bonus. man which I know I know that's way way too much now we're talking about the foreign access and all these other things that we've got to look for by the way in the retail side of things are forever twenty one another retailer tanking are declaring bankruptcy sold another retail or box store retailer going out of business. so are not good news we hate to see those kinds of things but again we continue to see Josh how how hard it is. for. for these retailers is not getting any easier even with the consumer spending being what it is. consumer spending now comes in all shapes and forms of one line spending not in retail are or box stores so. this is leading up to our Christmas so they could even hang in there hoping to get a little bit about the Christmas or maybe I should say couldn't hang in there a smart enough that it's probably not going to happen for them anyway all right interesting interesting as we are take a look at that right now all my markets again aren't positive territory so the the delisting of China stocks is on the table I guess United States is I'm thinking about limiting government pension funds and their investments in in Chinese markets our president trump is planning so they might so they're saying on restricted to restrict the US China investments. and maybe this is a negotiating ploy I would suspect it might be but it could be another long term battle with US and China so world shares on Monday our street just. growing there's often not even thinking about it like a big deal and that's maybe a good thing this may be a good thing we still have to worry about commodities here's our agar poor with crack Albert so when I go to ride report and we'll be right back we want to get your call six ten three six three eleven ten. hello financial issues that got. markets were
