At Bloomberg, reporters like me dig into the context of a story, so you understand how it impacts you. Because context changes how you see things, how you change things. Context changes everything.

A highlight from Tom Emmer Pro-Crypto Vote Tomorrow! | DO THIS NOW!
"All right, so the speaker battle is heating up right now, and what looks and appears as though maybe Tom Emmer is going to be at the front of the pile. We'll see how all this plays out because we're going to get a vote tomorrow. We'll break that down, but give you guys some insights why this could be good for crypto. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. I want to get us started today, but I do want to thank our sponsor, and that is Tangem. If you're looking at going into self -custody, this is, I think, one of the best platforms out there for self -custody. It's a card platform that you can use. If you go over to their website, you can go into the simple do -it -yourself card, which is going to auto -generate your seed phrase, or you can get into a version that's going to give you a seed phrase option. So you've got both options. Make sure and get the three -pack. Use our code down below. It's going to give you an additional 10 % discount. So that does help the channel out. All right, let's get into a couple of things here today. I've got a few clips here to play out. To give you one, a recap of where the speaker is and why this is such an important role, especially for crypto. Let's play this first clip. Two would -be candidates, Majority Leader Steve Scalise and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, ended up withdrawing their names after not having the votes they needed. The standstill preventing Congress from taking any action on crucial issues. Nine candidates filed to run by Sunday's deadline. The highest ranking among them, GOP whip Tom Emmer, has already earned the endorsement of his former boss. This is not a time for a learning experience as speaker. Tom would be able to walk into the job and do it. A secret vote with the GOP conference is scheduled for Tuesday. Congressman Mike Flood is encouraging Republicans to sign a unity pledge, promising to support whomever wins that vote. He can only afford to lose support from four of his Republican colleagues. In a letter Saturday promising to always be honest and direct and never make a promise he can't fulfill, Schultz says Emmer represents a compromise candidate for a divided Republican party, adding that Emmer appears to have plenty of support and respect among Republicans. All right, so, I mean, it looks rosy for Emmer, however, there is and most likely going to be some pushback. This most likely will come from the MAGA side of what's happening in the House. I want to go to this next clip on what happens tomorrow in terms of the vote. Listen in. I think we will know probably by one o 'clock tomorrow who that speaker nominee is and how close they are. Will they be able to start legislating again quickly or is there going to be too much back and forth? I think that right now we're in a situation where if a speaker does not come out of this around here, I think it increases the pressure to come with some kind of an agreement about a temporary speaker. There is a lot that the House needs to get underway. And of course, getting a speaker in line is very, very critical. Here was a clip on Ken Buck, kind of because he was one of the first to actually flip on Jordan and be pro Emmer, listen to what he had to say. He did not vote for Congressman Jim Jordan, instead voting for Tom Emmer. Well, I guess my first question is, do you really want Tom Emmer to be speaker? No, I don't. I don't like Tom Emmer. I figured this would be the worst job in America. This is a terrible job. So just to underscore that you voted for somebody because you don't like them. I voted for somebody because I wasn't going to vote for Jim. But but you. All right. So you can kind of see the quandary that the House is in. They don't want something so far right. But at the same time, they're not necessarily, you know, positive on what Emmer's stance is, because remember, Emmer is a very pro digital assets lawmaker. And I think his position right now will start to really press the House in terms of things going forward. Politico had an article right here. Trump's tells allies he didn't support Emmer's speaker bid. So this is already starting a little bit of a kerfuffle with not only within the House itself, but also some key components of we'll call it the MAGA machine. I want to go to this next clip that is kind of interesting. This is Steve Bannon talking about Speaker Emmer. Listen in. Remember, Tom Emmer's the biggest of all the never Trump congressmen out there. He's a guy who hates Trump, a super bad guy. If you take out Emmer, you look at the other eight. Hey, there's some good people there. The first thing to do is to stop Emmer today. Once Emmer stopped. Just want to repeat this. You have decapitated decapitated you. This audience did that. Nobody else did that. You did this. So interesting stuff there from Bannon. Again, you know, obviously a very pro MAGA position here again was Roger Stone. If Republicans are going to select Tom Emmer for speaker, why not just reinstall Nancy Pelosi? They're saying, I think that this is the problem that we face right now in the House is that there's so much of this political infighting right now. We can't get these things done and it represents an opportunity for us to get when I say us meaning the American people get a pro digital assets lawmaker in a position of power. Not that the majority of whip is not a position of power, but the speaker of the house is a position of the power and could help really move things through from a regulatory standpoint. I want to jump over to this next clip and this goes into why MAGA is not in line with what Emmer is all about. Listen to that. Is he too moderate? And I put that in quotes. Is he too moderate for House Republicans to unite behind? Absolutely not too moderate. They are all extremely hard, right? Tom Emmer would be the natural pick in a moment where everything has collapsed and you just reach for a consensus candidate. The problem is, Katie, he is one of the members that voted to certify the 2020 election. And so Donald Trump is suspicious of him. It only takes a handful of people who say, OK, Mr. Trump, I'll oppose Emmer. I agree. Emmer is probably the front runner, but Emmer get 217 votes on the floor, not if Donald Trump says don't do it. That is going to be the question here, because if he doesn't win over some of the Republicans and there's only a handful that he has to be able to do this with, then he's going to lose out. But I think we as the American people will lose out just equally as well. Here's why, though, it's so important to the crypto community of why Emmer should be the speaker listening. Crypto saying this whole industry is a fraud, is a scam. It offers no value. It's all play money, et cetera. And then you get to the very end, say the future of our finance in this country is going to be Fed now and the CBDC. Right. Wait a second Fed now. Oh, yippee. I think Fed now will probably work about as well as the post office. All right. You will not have real time clearing. And if you do, you got to worry about everybody who's watching that transaction and scraping data out of that transaction on behalf of your government. The Republican Party has always had its issues with a party purity, right, constitutional purity. And I'm better than you and I'm more in the religious right that factors into it. So we have all these, if you will, melting pot of these different political persuasions. But you've got some good Democrats. I'm going to tell you right now, by the way, their political persuasion probably leans even farther left than I would care to acknowledge. But it's not about their political leanings, just like it's not about Tom Emmer's political leanings. This is an area of finance that literally defines our freedom. I got news for you. That's not a Republican or Democrat thing. That's an American thing. And whether it's Richie Torres, whether it's Darren Soto, who I do a bunch of different bills with, whether it's Ro Khanna, I think you've got to be a little patient with them and I'm not here to to defend them. But I think you've got to be a little patient with them because maybe they are measuring their words because they happen to be under a Democrat administration that they disagree with. Quite frankly, this is what frustrates me with Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren, if she truly believed in the American value of self -determination, if she truly believed in individuals right to make their own decisions, would she claims she would champion crypto? It's very clear to me that she's nothing more than a big central bank power hungry leader who sees her power essentially being diluted and taken away by this decentralization of our financial system and our financial transactions. And she's desperately, along with the establishment, the institution, she is desperately clinging to hold on to that central banking thing, because that's where their power is. This is a good example of some of the things that are happening right now in our traditional banking system. And these are the things that decentralized assets, especially around digital assets, could solve. And one of those, of course, right here from The Daily Hodl, JP Morgan, of course, coming in now, being sued allegedly for terminating accounts, failing to return about 1 .1 million. So this was purchased through CDs to a couple, individually purchased some CDs at a branch, at a Chase branch. The bank basically closed their accounts and the bank said it mailed out checks to them, but they never got them. And then it all went into, well, give us the check numbers and they couldn't provide those because they never got the check. It ended up having to result in a lawsuit to be able to just get those assets back. These are the kind of things that are happening in traditional finance. And this is just one of many things that are going on out there within TradFi. And I think that's the point that Emmer was making with Elizabeth Warren. But more importantly is that we need to get to a point of decentralized assets as an option that isn't being pushed down by overreach by the SEC, etc. Even Trump, ironically, has an Ethereum stash and it's growing or continuing to grow whether he wants it to or not. The idea of him doing NFT drops and his concept around what he's doing on his collectibles is kind of unique in the sense that he might be against a speaker that's actually pro digital assets, which would be beneficial for him. All right. So whoever does win the speakership, the issue is going to be going through these eight Republicans. So if you if you recognize one of these people and I'll put the names down here in a second is now go out there with StandWithCrypto, I'll show you the website in a second. You can get more information on each one of these. But the list is right here. Let's going to zoom in on it. You got Andy Biggs of Arizona, Ken Buck, Colorado, Burchetta of Tennessee, Eli Crane, Arizona, Matt Gaetz, of course, Florida, Bob Good, Virginia, Nancy Mace, South Carolina, and then Matt Rosendale of Montana. So what I would do is just go right over to StandWithCrypto. You can go over and actually search out each individual person. It will give you the ability to call your congressman right there. You can get started. It's going to give you a little script and it's going to give you ability to actually stand up for what's happening in crypto right now. We are close, maybe the closest ever to getting a pro legislator in a position of power to be able to get some of this stuff through and really change, I think, the future of innovation around all of this. Now, not everything is great right now in terms of the House. And we're going to have a lot of situations, especially hearings, coming along this week. This is one of the things that is going to be happening is going to be a hearing examining the SEC's agenda, unintended consequences for the U .S. capital markets and investors. So that's one. Let me kind of zoom in on that for you guys. This one right here is happening on October 24th. Then we also have this hearing right here, which is the Modernizing Financial Services Through Innovation and Competition, another pro independent finance. And this will happen on the 25th as well or the day after. Then we have two hearings that are extremely negative to crypto. This one right here, which is the hearing entitled How America and its allies can stop Hamas, Hezbollah from invading sanctions and financial terror. You know that crypto is going to come up on that. I hope that we get a lot of the on -chain data analysis that has been put out there to show that they've been wrong in accusing crypto of contributing to that. And the last one that you have to watch for this week also is moving the money, understanding Iranians' regime access to money around the world. This is going to go back into the scenario of how are they getting cash. You know crypto is going to be coming up in that as well. So there's some very key hearings that most likely are going to have bills attached to this that are critical to the future of how this market is going to be flowing out there. So just be aware this is a big week in D .C. With a speaker, a couple of hearings on both the good side and the bad side of crypto. And I think after this week, we're going to know a lot more going forward, especially around legislation. Here's our S &P. This is on the four hour. So you can kind of see that clip right there on Thursday, the 27th. And then we've seen that bit of a downturn. You look at gold also, which has been on the rise, but has started to stabilize right here around the 1900, 1950 range, which is interesting because with Bitcoin continuing to fly right now, the question mark is, is this the top? We're going to be doing a video on that, so be on the lookout for that. Of course, if you guys are not in the diamond circle, make sure and get in now. It's one of the best places to get additional content from us. We do additional podcasts over there, some TA videos I think you will like. We just did one on Solana, also on APE and Render, all of which have been moving a little bit over the last few days. So check that one out. Just go to our substack, pbn3 .substack. You can find out all that good stuff over there. And of course, if you're not following me on X, make sure and do that. It's just at Paul Baron. We'll catch you next time right here on Tech Buy.

It is a beautiful Wednesday afternoon here outside Chicago, and there is a lot to talk to. Of course, I am Matt Verderam, and I am joined, as always, by Gilberto Manzano. Gil, how you doing? I'm doing well. A lot of blowouts, I seem like, in week four of the NFL, but, you know, other than that, another terrible Monday Night Football game, I'm okay. I feel like I would start that way. I don't know why. Yeah, the Monday Night game was a travesty, and the Giants, um, I don't know, at some point, how you don't just max protect the rest of the game. I mean, they couldn't block anybody. It was unbelievable. The Seahawks looked like the 85 Bears in that game. 10 sacks on Jones, 11 overall. But, yeah, you're right. I write that column in real time on Sunday where I'm updating throughout the day. It was funny the first couple of weeks because, really, very few blowouts happened, so I had to wait right up until the end to write a lot of those, and it was kind of a fire drill. Last week, that was not the case. Last week, I wrote a ton of them about halfway through the third quarter and then just updated the stats, although I did get burned doing that with the Bears and the Broncos because the Bears are the Bears. I almost got burned doing that with the Rams and the Colts, but the Rams held on to win, so all's well that ends well in L .A. But, you know, look, I want to steer, we're going to get to the five best games of the week, as we always do, and we're going to talk about the biggest story, which involves the Dolphins for a second straight week, and we're going to get to all that stuff, including some stuff here about the Broncos. But I want to lead off here with some of the week five storylines that I find interesting, I think are probably things that we're going to be talking about here for a while, and one of them is, C .J. Stroud last week played really, really well for Houston, and he's played well throughout the year. They're 2 -2. They just plowed Pittsburgh, 30 -6. Stroud was aggressive. He went downfield. He threw on the run. He did a fantastic job. Conversely, the Panthers are one of two teams that are 0 -4 on the year, and Bryce Young, coming off the injury, didn't play in week three, didn't play in week four. He struggled against Minnesota. It was probably the best game he's played to this point, but still very much everything underneath, everything short. The offense only accounted for six points. How pumped should Texans fans be about Stroud, and then on the other side of it, how worried should everybody in Carolina be about Bryce Young? Yeah, for Houston, let's put it this way. If you would have asked me a month ago, hey, you, Matt, telling me, we're going to start the show off with C .J. Stroud and the Texans in week five. What do you think about that? I would have laughed at you. So that shows you that the Texans are in the spotlight. They have a good quarterback, and it's funny how when you find that next quarterback, that star quarterback, you tend to get more eyeballs, more attention, more headlines. So if you're Houston, you're excited. You're ecstatic, because we all remember what happened with Deshaun Watson. That got ugly. That got messy. Now you can maybe somehow move on from that. It's still kind of a similar regime, right, different head coach, but still front office people, same owner, stuff like that. But now it feels like a fresh start. D 'Amico Ryan is doing a great job. So no interceptions, Matt. That is amazing to see. He's averaging 300 yards per game passing. So if you're Houston, you're really excited. Now with the Panthers, you're wondering, did you do something wrong? You traded up. You had the first pick. You had dibs on anybody you wanted. Anthony Richardson doing well at the same time as C .J. Stroud. And Matt, that race for Offensive Rookie of the Year, Pukunukuo, Anthony Richardson, C .J. Stroud, it's going to be tough. But if you're the Panther, you're probably asking yourself, what did we do wrong, or is it us? And you see reports about the Panthers going all in, the trade deadline, getting a wide receiver. They get some offensive lineman back. Maybe they're not panicking, but you're probably scratching your head wondering what did we do wrong here? Is it us? Is it the quarterback? Who knows? I mean, yeah, going all in for Carolina at this point is crazy. The only reason you wouldn't do that is because you don't have your first round pick. It belongs to Chicago anyway, so you're not gaining anything by being awful. The Bears are hoping they don't do that. The Bears are hoping they sit tight and have the worst pick in the draft, or the number one pick in the draft. Look, to start off with Stroud, okay, he has been everything Texans fans could have possibly wanted. As you mentioned, no picks. He's got six touchdown passes, which ranks him tied for 10th. He ranks fourth in passing yardage with just over 1 ,200. He's only behind Tua, Stafford, and Cousins. He is averaging eight yards in an attempt, only behind Tua and Brock Purdy. His QBR is 15th, which is okay, that's fine, but he's been fantastic. He's doing this with a bad offensive line that's been shuffling pieces. Tunzil's been in and out of the lineup. This is a team with Nikko Collins and Tank Dell that he's strong to, and Dalton Schultz. With all due respect to those guys, we're all good players. None of them are number one guys, guys who are going to take over a game. And he's doing it with a new coaching staff. D 'Amico Ryan is what I think has done a hell of a job. He's defensive -minded, right? Sloake comes in as the offensive coordinator, and this is his first time in that seat. The coming Texans into this season had won 10 games in three years combined. The last three years, they've won 10 games. I don't know if they're going to get to 10, but I've got to tell you, if you're the Texans, this is by a mile the most fun you've had in a long time, whether or not it was on the field or the off -the -field ugliness with Deshaun Watson. And I've got to tell you, if you look at the Texans' schedule, and part of this, of course, is the division they play in, it's not exactly Murderers Row here. Falcons, Saints, Panthers, Bucks. Next four weeks, you'll get the four NFC South teams. You win any of those games. Then you play at the Bengals, which normally you'd go, that's a brutal game, but who knows right now? The Bengals, what the hell is going on with them, right? Who knows what brothers you can play in that game? Then after that, the Cardinals, the Jags at home, the Broncos at home, the Jets, the Titans, the Browns, the Titans, the Colts. I mean, does any team in the league have a more favorable schedule than that? So I love what I'm seeing. I love what they're doing. They look great. I'm really happy for the fans in Houston. On the flip side, with Young, I think it's fair to say both. You've got to be patient. It's three games into his career because he missed a one. On the other hand, yeah, there's definitely cause for concern here. He is averaging 4 .9 yards in attempt, which ranks 33rd in the NFL. There are 32 teams. He ranks 33rd. And he is almost a full yard behind Gardner Minshew, who ranks 32nd. He is dead last of all quarterbacks who qualify for QBR. 33 qualify, he's dead last to 24 .9. He has two touchdowns and two picks and yardage per game, not just total yardage because that would be unfair to him, obviously. Yardage per game, you'll look at him and he's way at the bottom, man. The only guys he's ahead of right now are Anthony Richardson, Gardner Minshew, of course, both on the Colts, and Dorian Thompson Robinson, who played essentially one game. So you'll look at this and go, okay, we know the line hasn't been good, but Frank Reich should be a good coach for him. He's a former NFL quarterback. He's coached a lot of different quarterbacks in his recent years with the Colts. It has not gone well. The offensive line has not been good. I'm not ready to push the panic button yet on Bryce Young, but I think it's fair to say that this has been ugly to start. And if you're Carolina, you're looking at Richardson, you're really looking at Stroud going, did we screw this up? Because it doesn't look great early. Yeah, man, that's a good point about the coaching side. You thought that Carolina Panthers bringing in so many well -known coaches. Josh McCown, former quarterback. Thomas Brown did good things with the Rams and Sean McVay. And like you mentioned a couple of weeks ago, they keep putting the training wheels on this guy. Let him go out there, let him learn from his mistakes and getting a better flow. And it does suck having the injury. You miss a game. You're trying to come back against Minnesota. Brian Flores doing the safety blitz with Harrison Smith. I'm sure that could fluster you a little bit. But then you mentioned it with Houston. It's kind of the same thing. The surroundings are not ideal for Houston either, and C .G. Stroud is doing well. And the thing I'll end here for the point on the rookie is like, are we seeing C .G. Stroud just being the most prepared quarterback because he's so accurate, a bigger size? You just get the ball to your playmakers and let them do their thing. Or is this like the beginning of Joe Burrow? Is it more like Dak Prescott? And I can't tell with C .G. Stroud because he's so good at the fundamentals and being accurate. With Anthony Richardson, you see a higher ceiling, but he's not quite there as C .G. Stroud. So I just wonder, does the ceiling get higher? Is this Joe Burrow kind of level of accuracy? Yeah, it's going to be very interesting to see it all play out. But Stroud has been absolutely fantastic.

It is my birthday tomorrow. So sometimes if my birthday coincides with rewatchables, which I think has only happened one other time, but we like to do a big movie. So that's where we're doing one of my favorite movies the last 40 years. Stay tuned. Coming up next, we had an action packed loaded week three. We're gonna talk Taylor Swift, Travis Kelsey. We're gonna talk about Miami putting up 70. Sal's team losing. We're gonna introduce a new character, parent corner. Sal sent his kid to college. Oh man, this is almost two hours. Let's get to it. First pro jam. Let's get to it. All right, taping this a little after 8 .30, Sunday night Pacific time. The hardest word come in and show business is here. Cousin Sal just watched Pittsburgh Vegas, a bizarre game, but we're not starting there. We're starting with your team. You're stupid cowboys. You compliment me and now that I see what you did here. Okay, all right. Your stupid team that I thought I could throw into a little 11 and a half Arizona, like throw a bit. All they had to do was run by two and a half. I had a FanDuel boost. I had real life money. I had a million dollar pick and it's like, of course they'll beat the Cardinals by two and a half. Rahim thought the Cardinals were tanking. No, no, that's not what happened. And now you're containing cowboys. They couldn't even make it to my birthday before they fell apart. They couldn't even make it to the end of September. Was that the goal? I guess had they known your birthday was a Monday. Yeah, they might've stuck around. I know, I know. I don't know what to tell you. It sucked. I had it tied to everything too. I had an Oregon this and the Chiefs this and the 49ers and the Cowboys and everything. And I didn't even care that they had three, essentially three offensive linemen out or that Trayvon Diggs got hurt. Not that I didn't care, but I didn't think it would affect this game. And then they just got, they went out there and got their asses kicked. 13 penalties and didn't force any turnovers and couldn't do shit in the red zone. And of course it's a double digit loss, jerks. I kept, I had in the back of my head Rahim's theory that the Cardinals were tanking and that they were only playing one, a good first half. And then they would throw away the second half because their real goal is Caleb Williams. So at halftime, I'm like, I'm not going to panic yet. Maybe the Rahim's theory, no. The Rahim's theory was not true. The Cardinals actually played really well. And your team, I will say, look, this happens sometimes. Usually it doesn't happen in week three. It happens later in the year. But the team that is getting smoke blowing up their butts, they have this easy game and say, oh yeah, we're going to Arizona. It's going to be half Dallas fans. This will be a layup for us. So we've seen this scenario, just not this early in the season. What worried me though, from a Dallas standpoint, forget about the offensive line and the blocking stuff. Cause you'll get those guys back. But you do seem to have like third and seven, third and eight if Lamb is covered, where do you go issued? Like, you know, not everyone has the Kelsey type, but you don't have the Devontae Adams. You don't have really any of those guys. You don't have that big physical tight end in the middle. You don't have the awesome, you know, James White type third down running back who's going to get open. And you could really feel it in the red zone. They were one for five in the red zone today. Yeah. I mean, you know, what's his name? The tight end who went to Houston, I already forgot his name from Dallas last year, was our second lead. Schultz was our second leading receiver last year. So yeah, there is something to be said about that. And I do want to put it in proper perspective. If the Eagles lose to Tampa Bay, which is a possibility tomorrow, the week is a wash in the NFC East, right? That means everyone will have lost. So I don't want to get too crazy, but it did expose, you're right, everything I always worry about. Can Dak come up with a big play down the stretch? You know, are these injuries too much to overcome? And Mike McCarthy in that play calling, it really seemed like we were up 12 points trying to bleed the clock, not down 12 points. And it's like, oh, maybe he's just afraid to throw it. And then when we saw, he threw into three defenders and you cleverly quipped, how did they know which of the three were to intercept it? Yeah, that was kind of wrenching. That was an angry text to yours. I was just angrily texting. Like it was your fault that I was losing all my teases. Yeah, he just threw into three guys on one of the biggest plays of the game. Complete panic throw.
A highlight from Commemorating The 22nd Anniversary Of The Sept. 11th, 2001 Attacks
"It's funny how people lie about actual real world events, even as we witnessed them on video, like Trump's visit to the Iowa football game. And he just got a resounding welcome. And they were trying to pretend he was being booed. You know, because there might have been a smattering of boos or a few people that gave him the middle finger, they wanted to pretend that he didn't get an absolute hero's welcome at the football stadium. And the video showed he did. Even CNN acknowledged it. Screaming, USA! USA! Trump! Trump! Trump! Man, oh, man. Republicans need to focus on Iowa and New Hampshire to try to stop him. I guess that might be their firewall if you're Ron DeSantis or Nikki Haley or one of the others. I don't know how they're going to stop him. We shall see. It's September 11th. We're broadcasting from lower Manhattan. It's been 22 years since the September 11th attacks changed our world forever, changed our way of life, changed the way we view, oh, things like freedom. Freedom is on my mind today a lot. And I want to start with a difficult question about 9 -11. You know, 9 -11 spurred the Patriot Act, where the government felt that steps needed to be taken in order to be able to thwart terrorism. And the Patriot Act essentially took away the freedom that many, many Americans had enjoyed. Now, I understand we've got to try to figure out how to battle terrorism. Totally get it. But what I'm not too clear on is when the door got cracked open, where today the government is criminalizing speech to such an extent that they want to lock up the 45th president of the United States. The New York Times did a huge piece. Trump's indictments, key players in the 2020 election effort, it is quite the quite the article. They call out just about everyone in Trump's orbit and essentially accused them of being co -conspirators in a crime to overturn the 2020 election. It's insane. It's insane to witness the absolute destruction of speech in this country. And I want to ask you a difficult question. I want to start with it. Did it begin with the Patriot Act? Did this begin with 9 -11? Because my hunch is it might have. And if so, then Republicans are culpable as well. I think the more immediate place we're at right now is due to COVID. COVID cracked open the door to say, hey, if you question anything about the vaccine or about masks or about lockdowns, we're going to destroy your life. We're going to get you fired. We're going to deplatform you. We might even put lock you up. If you dare, I know a guy who lost a job, a good job, because he expressed a belief on social media that he shouldn't have to wear a mask because his coworkers were triggered by him. Now, he has since sued the employer, and I hope he wins. That's still winding its way, I think, through the legal process. But that's just one example of many. Everybody has an example. Everybody knows an example of somebody who paid a heavy price for daring to open their mouth. It used to be that America is a place where you were allowed to open your mouth. You were allowed to question authority. You were allowed to question any narrative you wanted, and we weren't going to lock you up for it. Democrats in 2016 questioned the election. All of them did. I've played that montage for you 100 times. Hillary, John Lewis, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Jimmy Carter, they all said Trump didn't win. The New York Times isn't doing a big expose on them. The New York Times isn't calling them out. But now they're calling out, and I mean everybody, Ronna McDaniel, Ted Cruz, Mike Lindell, anybody within—in fact, I saw in the comments section of this shocking article in the New York Times, somebody said, well, shouldn't Fox News be next? What about talk radio? Yeah, that's right. The left wants to lock all of us up for daring to express opinions. When did this terrible, dark chapter begin? Was it COVID, or was it 9 -11 and the creation of the Patriot Act? Let's start there. I want to flood my phone lines here on this Monday in the Relief Factor studios with your phone calls. Right here in the Ph .D. weight loss and nutrition phone number, it's 800 -655 -MIKE. That's the way for you to join us. I want you to tell me where you think it began. Did it begin with 9 -11 and the Patriot Act? Because we're in a bad place right now. I just read that New York Times article three or four times in a sense of shock. Could not think they can get away with weaponizing and criminalizing free speech in America. And that's a bad place to be. Let's get your take on it. And again, you're smart. You got the smartest audience in the world. Where did it start? Did it begin with 9 -11? Did it begin with COVID? Did Republicans do enough to stop this? Give me your take on tyranny Democrat Party style 2023 America. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. 800 -655 -6453. Press 1 to come on air with us. Press 2 to leave a voicemail.

"Hey everybody's and the Charlie Kirk show what's going on in Maui we examine this from every possible angle. We're missing something We're not getting the full truth.

That's why we are here I Brought to you by the loan experts. I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd comm We say America first often on this program, what does that mean? That means that our concerns should be prioritized by our leaders full stop We reject the anthem of neoliberalism of caring about other countries problems while our own country burns Interestingly I have used that sentence quite often our own country is burning our country is burning our country is burning Well literally our country has been burning the last week the beautiful island of Maui One of the the jewels of America It's burning now how the fire started we're gonna speculate. I don't think it's that actually that helpful At this point it might have been arson it was probably human involvement 85 % of massive fires are Human caused was it somebody that was trying to start the fire or not We'll find out as time goes on But what's interesting is that the reaction to the fire has been awfully perplexing. We were told it was no big deal We're showing some of the b -roll right now on screen. This looks like this looks like Pearl Harbor, and I'm not making a joke That looks like Pearl Harbor people in the water it looks like something out of a dystopian apocalypse film and It got worse this weekend as all of a sudden the quote -unquote metaphorical and literal dust settled we realized that the entire southwestern part of the island of Maui Basically looks like Dresden This is catastrophic damage Unfathomable Death toll we don't even know I mean we they're speculating a couple dozen people dead, but no no no It's gonna be a lot more than that. They're saying a thousand people are missing It's beyond comprehension So first let's just be very clear We need to be in an active mode of helping any way we possibly can our fellow Americans These are our fellow Americans, and I'll be honest I've not seen much about FEMA or federal response, and I have a theory about this And it's not it's not a theory that's going to make anybody feel good. I have not seen this massive federal action There are already 96 people confirmed dead Now Maui is home to a lot of different people the oligarchs of our society Jeff Bezos Oprah Winfrey Jimmy Buffett Marc Benioff from Salesforce Howard Schultz from Starbucks Now let me be very clear. There's a lot of People are saying Oh Oprah started the fire Oprah did not start the fire, okay? Just people didn't email me. I think Oprah started the fire. I don't think she started the fire. I'm not a fan of Oprah however if Oprah's property would have been burning I guarantee you the federal response would have been way swifter That I can guarantee you but putting that aside the The tragedy is real, but let's go back to one of our favorite questions that we ask on this program It's an old Latin phrase and it offers clarity We bono who benefits and That's a really sick question isn't it because no one should benefit from Fires that destroy entire islands there should be no beneficiary of Scorched earth, but if you remember tiny dancer Rahm Emanuel Former chief of staff to Barack Hussein Obama who became mayor of Chicago He famously said you can never let any crisis go to waste the response to this fire feels as if it's been slow motion and it reminds me of Dancing in the streets Hugging people saying it was racist to even call that you know the Chinese New Year remember Nancy Pelosi and we went from 0 to 100 on kovat not a big deal to this is the biggest deal Almost allowing it to spread on the homeland so far Remember when Donald Trump stopped travel to China.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/02/23
"We could use this every day for the M &M segment. I love it. Knowing me, there is a reason. This of course was sung by a jingle singer named Cynthia Fee for the theme to the Golden Girls, but written by this wonderful man right here, Andrew Gold, who did such great work with Linda Ronstadt and others, and wrote some pretty great records himself like Lonely Boy, the great Andrew Gold would have been. Gosh, it was his birthday today, and so there we go. Well, we need friends. Oh my goodness gracious me, we sure do. We have to have a community, and you know, I'm going to start out maybe riling you up a little bit. I'm not going to suggest you're mistaken by saying that when I say that people should be rallying behind Trump uniformly, I get it, we're going to let the game come to us, voters are going to get to decide, but boy, this would be a good time if you've been on the fence, and you have been sort of squishy about, well, I don't know, Trump, baggage, DeSantis, maybe an alternative, I kind of like that vague fellow. Now, this is a time to stand with a guy who is being unbelievably persecuted, not prosecuted, persecuted for his beliefs. You know, Mark, I've been thinking a lot about that, and first of all, I can't believe my level of emotion right now. I didn't expect to be this emotional. Me neither. Give voice to that, because you and I have done this forever, right? We have some decades, there have been presidents we liked, those we didn't. Policies we thought were great, policies we thought were horrible. There is something singularly horrid about this. Please, you go first. Well, the word is sinister. There's a sinister effort to stop the election process, to subvert the election. Everybody knows it, everybody's in on it. The Democrats are well aware of this. When Trump says, why did they wait two and a half years to throw all this at me? We know the answer to that, so I'm feeling kind of a combination. First of all, I'm surprised at how sad I am, and how fearful I am. I don't know how this is going to play out, but it's not good. It's not good for the Democrats, it will not be good for the Democrats. It's not good for Republicans, it's not good for this constitutional republic to criminalize political speech. And that's literally what Jack Smith, this guy, this scoundrel, is attempting to do. He's making the case that he knows that Donald Trump didn't believe that the election was suspect. Now, you and I are in a very unique position here on this. We hear every day from people from all walks of life. We hear people North, South, East, West, young, old, right, left. Is there any doubt in your mind that of the thousands of reactions you and I have gotten from people saying that Trump got hosed in 2020, that the thousands and thousands of people who have said this election was not on the up and up, COVID laws, they changed things because of COVID, they changed election laws in the middle of the night, all the suspicions that people have. Is there any doubt in your mind, Mark, that those are not sincerely held beliefs? None. Of course they believe it. And people can agree with it, disagree with it, and you can feel that things were squirrelly, or you can say, as Trump does, that we definitely won. You even have the right in America to be a little bit of a nut. You can go full Sidney Powell with the Hugo Chavez changing the Dominion machine scenario. Even that's not illegal. You can go to jail for saying, you can go to jail for saying, ladies and gentlemen, I believe that the moon is made out of Swiss cheese. Come get me, put handcuffs on me, take me away. Now, here's though, but let's go apples to apples. The government, Biden's government, Biden's Justice Department, and of course that's the whole story, is trying to make the case that Trump's words and actions led to the riot on January 6th, and therefore disenfranchised voters. You were talking about this earlier. They're going to use that old gag, the disenfranchisement of voters. How are voters disenfranchised by sitting around saying, as far as I know, Trump didn't get into the White House in 2021. Nobody was disenfranchised. Biden's the president. He's in the Oval Office. Nothing got, who was disenfranchised? How can you even make that claim, Mark? What can you, what can you possibly, okay, so Trump didn't think that he legitimately lost in 2020. Guess what? Join the club because I've got a montage that I'm going to play not from 2016. But Mike, that's not possible because 2020 was the first year that anybody ever doubted an election. Surely you don't have audio of Democrats doubting results from the past. Go, go, do you remember the George W. Bush, Al Gore Supreme Court battle? Remember that one? You're old enough to remember that? There's a montage that everybody can now hear. It goes back to those days when prominent Democrats, one after another, lined up and said that George W. Bush is not the legitimate president of the United States. He was the president select, remember? Oh, sure. And the Supreme Court anointed him. And by the way, all of those completely untrue things that they said, they have every right to say them. They have every right to say them. Nobody came to their house and went, we're going to indict you and lock you up for the rest of your life for saying those things. You know, one of the most popular text message articles that I've received is when people text me the keyword Trump and we send back a list of Trump accomplishments. Because a lot of people forget what happened in the four years that he was president. So thousands and literally tens of thousands of people have sent that text message, the word Trump, to my text line, which is 800 -655 -MIKE. A close second, and now I think a close third, will be when people want to hear the montage of Hillary, of the late John Lewis, of Jimmy Carter. Go down the list. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, not only doubting the legitimacy of the 2016 election, but now you can hear the montage that the great folks over at Grabian put together questioning the outcome of the George Bush Al Gore election. If you text the keyword fraud to 800 -655 -MIKE from your phone, we'll send you back the video clip of the election deniers Hillary Clinton at all in 2016. If you text the words more fraud to 800 -655 -MIKE, we'll send you back the montage of all the election deniers from the George Bush Al Gore battle. I mean, it's complete hypocrisy. And Mark, there is a nefarious, diabolical, sinister, history -making chapter that was just begun yesterday. And I know where this ends. I think you do too. You're a smart guy. I've been listening to you all day. This is going to have to be decided by the Supreme Court. The judge that has been randomly assigned to the Trump case, wink, wink, yeah, some random assignment. Have you read about this Lulu? This piece of work? She gives people jail sentences for January 6th when the government didn't want jail sentences for them. She sent a couple to jail for taking a selfie on Capitol Hill that day, and the government wasn't seeking any jail time. But this judge, an Obama appointee, is going to hear—so listen, get ready, because she's going to throw—she will absolutely rule against Trump. We're going to see a guy that might—I'm not kidding you—brace yourself, wind up in prison next year. Jack Smith is asking for a speedy trial. And I'm under no illusion that this thing is going to play out nicely or have a happy ending until it gets to the Supreme Court. I don't think it'll play out quickly, though. Every concern you have is rock solid, but I don't think there's—the reason he wants a speedy trial is so that it's plunked right down in the middle of the primaries. And I don't think that justice is going to move briskly here. Did you catch John Law in the— Wait a minute, wait a minute, hold on, let me push back on that with love. Let me tell you why. They hold the cards. They're playing—this is their game, Mark. This is not Trump's game. Now, you're right, this could—in a normal world, it would play out forever. This isn't normal. They're breaking the rules. They're making up the rules as they go. Of course they want a speedy trial because they want to disqualify Trump from November of 2024. Because, Mark, hey, announce your voice. He's going to win. He's going to win. I am more convinced of that now than ever. Well, the nomination, surely it seems, and I guess on a future day we'll talk about whether this helps or hurts in the general, but what do these people want? One of two things is true. They're trying to destroy him so that he'll never be the nominee or the president. Or they're trying to—or it's an odd four -dimensional chess where they are trying to gin up so much support in the MAGA base that he's absolutely the nominee because they think Biden can beat him. Which of those is true? That's a great question because they are not oblivious to these crazy poll numbers. They worship at the altar of the New York Times. The New York Times is predicting that Trump's going to win, and the New York Times is saying he might win in the general election. The New York Times -Siena poll is looking at a head -to -head matchup. I mean, Trump's got the— He is, without a doubt, a formidable political opponent that is the—I believe—I'm going to say it right now, and I'll get in trouble for it because I'm trying to be neutral. And I will absolutely support whoever the Republican nominee is as decided by the voters. But I have a belief that I think is going to be shared by millions and millions of people. Trump's the only guy who can beat the Democrats. Trump is the only guy who can win. Trump is the only guy who can stop them. I don't like the chances of any other—look at any one of them. DeSantis is a vague— You think Biden beats the—if the half -court shot goes in and DeSantis wins the lottery ticket and somehow gets the nomination in Milwaukee next year— And he could. And he could. And he could. You think Biden beats him? I think that Trump is our best chance, Mark. No, I mean, listen, I'm prayerfully going to believe that any Republican is going to beat this infirm old man who's shuffling around asking who ordered the veal cutlet. I don't know, but I still believe now, more than ever, that Trump is the best chance. Everything about the deep state, the uni -party, the system, everything is coming to fruition. It's true, Mark. And they're doing it— And he's vindicated. And they're saying it—just Jack Smith demanding a speedy trial. I mean, you took your time for two and a half years. Now you want a speedy trial? Are you kidding me? No, no, no. They're doing it right under our noses. And let me talk about the final heartbreak of the last 24 hours. You've touched on it. Mike Pence. Mike Pence. I've interviewed him on a number of occasions. What a good man. What a good Christian. What a servant's heart. He's got a servant's heart. And listen, he's a former colleague. He's a talk radio guy. I know, radio guy. I mean, he loved talking to me when I interviewed him on a number of occasions about the business. You know, he was in front of a microphone.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy Calls for Securing Our Border

Ukrainian president says counteroffensive does not aim to attack Russian territory
"Ukraine's president visiting Germany to coordinate weapons donations says a planned counter offensive against Russia is not intended to attack Russian territory. Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky received a grand welcome in Berlin, where he's met with leaders and held a news conference with German Chancellor olav Schultz. Who says they stand with Ukraine for as long as necessary. Zelensky was asked about a Washington Post report, which said leaked U.S. documents suggested he had considered trying to capture some Russian territory to use as bargaining chips. So landscape says he's only trying to get his land back. Noting Ukraine did not attack Russian territory and is only seeking to liberate its occupied land. He says they don't have the weapons time or interest in seizing Russian land. I'm Jackie Quinn
We Need Regulatory Clarity to Keep Crypto Exchanges Onshore...
"Today's featured stories and opinion piece from Jack soloway and Jennifer Schultz. Mister soloway is a policy analyst at kato's institute center for monetary and financial alternatives while miss Schultz is the director of financial regulation studies at the same institute. Our piece today is entitled, we need regulatory clarity to keep crypto exchanges onshore and DeFi permissionless. At consensus 2023, senator Cynthia lummis, a Republican from Wyoming, and congressman Patrick mchenry, a Republican from North Carolina, voiced their goals of developing legislation to clarify crypto market structure in the united states, with a house proposal expected in the next two months. Last week, in a joint hearing of the digital asset subcommittee of the House agriculture and House financial services committees, work proceeds to resolve what congressman French hill, a Republican from Arizona, has referred to as an impossible situation where the same firms are subject to competing enforcement actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, and the commodity futures trading commission or CFTC, which is in their words, pushing entrepreneurs, developers, and job creators offshore. This is an impossible situation, and it's manifestly unwise for the U.S. to show the door to those working on what may be the next generation of global financial infrastructure. Congress must bring regulatory clarity to crypto market structure, defining the bounds and appropriate legal treatment of crypto securities, crypto commodities, and the exchanges, both centralized and decentralized over which they trade. Notwithstanding the skepticism and evasions of SEC chair Gary gensler, crypto's core innovation decentralization is the proper criterion by which to rationalize digital asset market structure and determine whether applying traditional financial regulations to crypto tokens in exchanges make sense. The phrase, same activity, same risk, same regulation, is oft repeated by financial regulators. But as applied to crypto, it raises the question, are the risks the same. Specifically, do crypto projects present the risks that issuers in the primary market or intermediaries in the secondary market can exploit their position to harm token purchasers by, for example, abusing non public information, misleading market participants, breaking promises, or otherwise engaging in fraud.
Michael Wilkerson Warns of Government Takeover and Loss of Values
"Talking to Michael wilkerson, no relationship to Dave. The book is why America matters. The website storm mold dot com. What you're saying feeds into my deepest concerns about the death of America, the death of freedom, the rise of a one world government, inevitably led by what we cheerfully call the Antichrist and the beast. I don't see, I mean, it's an amazing thing suddenly to be at a place where I can conceive of all that happening in no time. In the last two years, two and a half years, we've seen things change that are incredibly dramatic and that are inescapable. I mean, listen, when you have, for example, on the West Coast, the government saying we can take your kids away from you. If you're 8 year old, says you say I'm a boy, but I say I'm a girl and if you don't like it, I'm going to run into the arms of the government. Out of the pit of hell that is as un American and unconstitutional as anything imaginable, that kind of thing is now happening. So the government has become increasingly authoritarian at the same time that it is increasingly hostile to American values, to biblical values, this is eerily reminiscent to what we saw happen. And you've written about what happened in Germany, but also in stalinist Russia. I just finished rereading gulag archipelago, Alexander Schultz and epic about life in prison, life in Soviet Russia in stalinist Russia. And the arbitrariness of the arrests of the silencing of taking whole families. People imagine that this can not happen here. Well, if they imagine it, most people aren't even aware of it anymore. They stopped reading about it. And this is the dangers that we're losing the insight into things that just happened less than a century ago.
Consumer Spending Growth Moderated in February
"A key report on consumer spending gives signs that inflation put the brakes on last month. Inflation eased and consumer spending moderated in February, according to today's report from the commerce department. That's good news for inflation watchers, consumer spending rose 0.2% from January to February. That's a drop from the hefty 2% increase a month earlier, consumer prices rose 0.3%, half the increase reported in January, slowing the annual rate to 5%. So called core inflation a figure closely washed by the Federal Reserve is hovering at 4.6%, but most consumers like Jennifer Schultz and saint Joseph, Missouri, are still feeling the pinch. I'm going to say I see it most in groceries,
Starbucks' Howard Schultz defends union stance before Senate
"Longtime Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has defended the coffee giants union stance before a Senate panel, the testimony was often testy with Senate health, education, labor, and pensions committee chair Bernie Sanders, saying federal courts and the national labor relations board have found Starbucks guilty of labor law violations. The most aggressive and illegal union bustling campaign in the modern history of our country. Schultz fought back. Starbucks has not broken the law. Saying, while the companies willing to bargain with unionized workers, they don't need unions because Starbucks gives them good pay and benefits. We do nothing that is nefarious. We put our people first. Ex barista, Jason saxton, told a different story, saying Starbucks fired workers and cut hours after his Augusta Georgia shop voted to unionize last year. He led a two day strike in protest. I was fired after organizing like so many union leaders across the country. Saxton says big companies like Starbucks do whatever they can to deny workers a voice.

"Howard Schultz. You Starbucks Howard Schultz, the former CEO recently departed. Pressed today. Grilled, as we like to say, by Bernie Sanders. About labor laws rejecting allegations that Starbucks broke them. You've heard enough about Starbucks versus the unions, and it actually came to a head today. On Capitol Hill, the Senate health education labor and pensions committee chaired by Bernie Sanders. Do you understand that an American workers have a fundamental right to join a union and collectively bargain to improve wages, benefits and working conditions? Do you understand that? I understand, and we respect the right of every partner who wears a green apron, whether they choose to join a union or not. Are you aware that NLRB judges have ruled that Starbucks violated federal labor law over 100 times during the past 18 months, far more than any other corporation in America. Sir Starbucks coffee company unequivocally, and let me set the tone for this very early on. Here we go. Has not broken the law, has not broken the law. That did not keep lawmakers on both sides. From doing some serious grandstanding and I'm not even making a reference to Bernie Sanders some lawmakers just talked. Don't even have to ask a question. That's what makes these fun. And of course, pay, worker pay was a big part of this. As Howard Schultz compared the going wage for a barista versus minimum wage in the states represented by those senators. Today, baristas in our stores earn on average $17 and 50 cents. Respectfully, it's more than the minimum wage of every senator that's represented a state on this committee. Including respectfully, chairman Sanders, where the minimum wage in Vermont is 1318. We're at 1750. Okay. He was prepared, and so is Emily Wilkins, Bloomberg government congressional reporter, joining us now from Capitol Hill. You must be skipping from one hearing room to another here, Emily. They are really packing a lot in. I mean, it's incredible sort of how many big administration figures have been up to the hill in the last week or so. And we haven't even had a chance to talk about that because there is so much going on. Last week with banking this week with sorry, this week with banking, last week with TikTok. It's a lot happening right now. What's the purpose of I'll start with the Starbucks hearing Emily? These are actually supposed to be legislative exercises. You bring someone in, get their testimony. It leads to better writing of bills. Will this? I mean, it also is a great moment for lawmakers to kind of try and claim their top 5 minutes of fame and ask some questions and these things become very politicized very quickly. But I mean, certainly there is some hope. I think on the democratic side that perhaps they could have some legislation, but the fact is right now we do have divided government. And a bill that's favorable to unions is going to have a very, very hard time passing in the house and getting divided stats. And so I think at this point, a lot of the hearing was just sort of really dig into the issue. Dig into some of the questions that have been around Starbucks for Congress to really take a closer look at what has really been a giant story over the last couple of years of Starbucks workers unionizing. Yeah, that's for sure. And boy, everyone came loaded for bear today. You heard Bernie Sanders, Mitt Romney, the senator, of course, from Utah, Republican was also there, and it's kind of interesting, Emily, and you know about this, Howard Schultz is a Democrat is running for president at one point, or at least came awfully close. The Democrats on the panel didn't want any part of him. Mitt Romney? Sure. I recognize that the outset there's some irony to a non coffee drinking Mormon. Conservative, defending a Democrat candidate for president and perhaps one of the most liberal companies in America. But there it is. Even Rand Paul. Emily was ready for a cup. Well, I won't go that far actually. Listen to the senator Frick from Kentucky. Starbucks did somehow somewhere discovering the depths of man's soul that he would pay as much for a double mocha latte as he once did for a week's worth of coffee. True. My wife Kelly and I tried to get my grandparents some fancy coffee once and my grandfather, a survivor of the depression, informed us in no uncertain terms that he drank Maxwell House. Three 9 9 for a week's worth of coffee. Okay. The Paul's, although German, often missed the zeitgeist of the times and so while we continue to purchase Maxwell House, others are contemporaries bought Starbucks stock and did much better than we did. Who knew? People would pay 6 bucks for a cup of coffee. But I digress. Howard Schultz knew so he's a piece of star among Republicans, I guess, Emily. I mean, yes. In a hearing that really focuses on and let's ruin the focus of this hearing was primarily on the unions on how Schultz has treated them on some of the concerns that have been raised. And so in this political studying with this topic on the table, yeah, you are going to see Republicans sort of flock to him and try to defend him the best they can. And I think, you know, perhaps if it was a different day, a different topic, it might not be that way, but I mean, the reality is that these hearings and to be honest this kind of goes back to what you're pointing out in the beginning. If you're a lawmaker, you usually sit on a couple different committees. If all the committees are doing a bunch of hearings, you're running from lawn to another, a number of House Republicans at J Powell to chat with today. You've got a ton of stuff going on. And so they kind of come in and say their piece, get out, and you know, it's not exactly the in depth inquiry that I think some people might believe these hearings are. Yeah, how true. We did not have the levity of the Starbucks hearing at the Homeland Security oversight hearing that took place yesterday. This was another big one here. In this case, Alejandro mayorkas, the Homeland Security secretary, just walking into the lions den here, Emily, and when we talk about performative exercises at these hearings, actually Roland tape actually performing for a campaign commercial potentially. Listen to Ted Cruz. Getting into this, he had props, leg irons, he was holding this is all about border security here, big easel behind him with images on it. Ted Cruz, using his time to go after Alejandro mayorkas and listen to the secretary's response at the end. Mister secretary, how many children have been sold into sex slavery under your administration? Senator, we are kicking it to the cartel. How many children have been sold into sex slavery? Do you know how many children have been sold in the sex slavery? Do an unprecedented degree. Mister secretary, I want to say to you right now. Your behavior is disgraceful and the deaths, the children, assaulted the children raped. They are at your

Ranking Democrat Stacey plaskett, she's from the Virgin Islands Democrat, ripped into Matt taibbi and Michael shellenberger, accusing them of endangering employees by exposing Twitter's censorship. This is, this is how low we've sunk.

Here she was yesterday trying to beat up this decades, this journalist with decades of experience, Matt taibbi. This was classic. No, I'm not asking you to put a dollar figure on it, but it's quite obvious that you've profited from the Twitter files. You hit the jackpot on that Vegas slot machine to which you referred. That's true, isn't it? I've also reinvested it. You've made some no, no, no, no. Is it true that you have profited? Since you were receipt, you were the recipient of the Twitter files.

It's unclear who Cox will face with a democratic field of big one that's still too close to call, although author Wes Moore, you know, endorsed by Oprah Winfrey is actually in the lead. We're standing in a group of believers that we as a state can be bolder that we can move faster, that we can do this and we can do this work together. Now state begins counting mail in ballots tomorrow and we get into some of the results here from last night and also follow the money in Maryland with Jessica Taylor who joins us once again on this day after the primary Senate and governors editor for the cook political report. It's great to have you back Jessica. Welcome. How long do we think it might take to learn who won the democratic nomination? Well, the more I had a former DNC chairman and former Obama labor secretary Tom Perez by about ten points and we saw a much heavier democratic mail in voting than Republicans, which is sort of the trend we have been seeing. So if this counting starts tomorrow, if there's a clear trade, sort of that I expect that sort of ten point maybe a little closer margin continues. I think we could see it called within the couple of days after that just we're just unclear how fast they're going to count too. So that's become an issue. Of course, lately, I want to ask you about who actually bankrolled Dan Cox's campaign though because this is, this would be whomever the democratic nominee is their preferred rival, right? Much has been made of the fact that the democratic governors association dumped over a $1 million. I think it was closer to $2 million into ads and mailers for Dan Cox if we can say that, they were critical through the eyes of a Democrat, but they emphasized his ties to Trump. And the idea is that Democrats would be able to run against the person they saw as the weaker candidate. They used an ad campaign called

Do they wanna win. Yes but they're not going to go all out and bury the future even more than saudi beardie to do it. And i don't answer your question. I think that's the right perspective because it is. It has been some of the national media confusing to me. That has been any names. Because they're very nice people in a lot of really no football they. Some people are friends of mine. And i'm dislike. What are you people writing. What are you saying. And i yeah i don't yeah just going to let it go before this guy. Calm down me. I apologize of. I do think though that the it was made to be more simple than the situation really is. And and i think that's and that's almost always the case with these things. You know the whole thing with trading. Julio i think was made to be far more simple than it really was a lot of things at play Including the fact that he wanted out. And i think that probably the best thing to do when you see a situation and it looks black and white is to take a step back and say there's probably some something else going on here. Some additional details. We don't know and i get for fans it's maddening because you wanna know why you wanna know sure. Why is my favorite player. Being shopped around on on the the trade block But again it's these situations are rarely ever just black and white a win now versus for the future. You know if i'm a gm. I want both but that's just mickey. Yeah yeah and and look if we're living in a world like baseball or whatever something raising he can play economic situations in this data caps situation. Then you know. Maybe if julio jones wanted to stay you do it right and money's not an issue lahser owners willing to spend money and you spend money but just not it's just not the reality of life in the nfl. It's not an and they were not going to. I mean i hate to break any anybody's vulgar. They were not gonna win the super bowl this next season with. Julio jones is just any you know that defense looks like how much they have to prove with a running game and you have an offense. Even if you think matt ryan can still play at a high level on. Cd's he can't but you if you think he can. There's a transition with a new office scheme in any new coaching style. You don't know. And while i think this team has been poorly coached couple of years And while i think some guys are going to perform better overall product is going to be better would. There's a lot of players we don't know they're going to respond. We don't know how they're gonna play in the scheme. We don't know how it on both sides of the ball. We don't have responded. These coaches Maybe they peaked already. Maybe the falcons gave money to some guys. I'm not gonna mention names that they should not have. And these guys are all going to be judged on a whole new level with new sets of eyes with no loyalties to the past whatsoever and and there's a lot of the year right now and it is fear and this is not critically jared. Because i think he's phenomenal and needs to be a part of the future and i don't think anyone franchise thinks otherwise but things go horribly this year you know. Are you thinking. I'm just throwing this out there. Are you thinking. Can we commit x number of dollars to one player defensive tackle when we have so many more holes to fill than we thought right this. I mean seriously so it's another reason. Why maybe the falcons didn't wanna go down that road right now. Outside of the fact. That just wasn't really feasible I just think there's a lotta decisions are gonna spin off. What happens this season. Who's kept who goes gets paid. Who doesn't get paid who we have can on from. I just think it's like starting with a clean chalkboard all over again. And i think this was never a situation where it was going to get fixed or completely rebuilt in one season regardless this was never going to be twenty twenty one. And we're done. This is probably a multi year project to your point where they're going to keep reevaluating some of these guys in figuring out there their long-term fit on the team. And you know even with guys like diaw jones and grady jarrett. If they're looking two years out those guys are gonna be approaching thirty. And and that's the point where you start wondering if that's the guy you're going gonna commit to for long run and this is what we signed up for. I mean fans wanted. Thomas dmitrov in dan quinn gone and they got their wish and i think it was the right decision. I think everyone believes it was right decision but along with that that means the new regime comes in and they re evaluate everything including your star future hall of fame wide receiver. Which is where. Jeff thank you again I mentioned this on twitter. And i'm going to reemphasize you're on the podcast for all the reporting i've been watching. Yours has been the most consistent on these. themes with the falcons. I think it's held up the most consistently over the past three or four months So kudos to that. Because it's been a roller coaster. We've seen some wild reports over the last three months. But i think your experience with this team has has shown over the past three months and is accredited work. You've been doing so on thinking. Yeah on that note tiller listeners where they can find you what you have going on Well since my week won't be interrupted by another flew straight trade. I could spend an hour on that one Yeah you can find everything. I write which i will be falcons minicamp I think tomorrow the next couple of days but yeah just the athletic dot com.

"At the time but you know keep people keep bringing up matt ryan. But he was the one move that they could make it that moment to get under the cap for the league. Your started and i feel like this. The cowboys fan may not understand this. But there's no there's no grace period you have to be under the cap when the nfl year starts. They don't yes. Let you carry over it like in. There have been teams if i think the last one was dallas. Cowboys got penalized. I think the first round draft pick because they went over the cap in a in a non In one of the middle years where the league was under a cpa. They take it seriously. So matt was the easiest and quickest way to get under the cap at at that at that juncture Interestingly you mentioned the negotiations with grady. It almost seems like the worst possible time to try to negotiate an extension is when his agent knows that you're desperate cap space absolutely like that's ever was saying that should be the easy stenciling like if i'm the agent. I'm dragging my feet a making no sweat. Because i know. I've got him right. Where one and now. The julio trade if anything up the possibility for a better negotiating ground with gregg jarrett next year if they want to extend him in help out the twenty twenty two which is not looking great without conceiver. No because you guy in we can circle back to matt ryan on this so right now you. You already had a bad cop situation. Twenty twenty to take what whatever it is fifteen million of a dead money of julio now in twenty twenty two bat ryan's because of the recent restructure cap number twenty twenty two jumps from about twenty five million this year to about forty eight million next year. He's not going to play for. Forty eight million next is not going to happen. So there's only two options one is they restructuring him yet again or to you and i are here one year from today. Talking about was getting a second round draft. Pick for matt ryan enough in the tree. And i'm not really exaggerating because if you look at his post june trade number next year it's not numbers are not equal to julio but it says it's a very similar situation right pay the guy forty eight million we. We can't do that. We can restructure him but we need to get out of this future hall or we can trade him. And i think a lot of these decision a lot of these decisions based on what happens in twenty twenty one This is why i was such a strong proponent of drafting quarterback matt still not sure they made the right decision outfits. Pets Regardless of how good cockpits is. I understand that. Their evaluation of justin fields was not nearly as high as it was trevor lawrence. Or zack wilson. Or or trey lance. Who i i know for a fact they really liked. Trae lands It was clear they did not want to take a guy who they presumed to be by the quarterback but guy Pick in the draft and really like how pits to there's person everybody likes cockpits never seen a guy be declared like an all pro before. He's even plays. I mean it's like people are like when this guy get i feel sorry for him. He will bring this jan or hollering and insert great. But i mean come on let me let me get play right pressure. No pressure so again. I buddy engineer. This comeback. Arthur smith again. It's to come back to their record. This year headed of they. And does arthur smith believe okay. We can trade matt ryan. Let's say eight okay. I think we can trade matt ryan and signed this ryan tannehill level quarterback. Okay as as we proceed ryan tannehill a couple of years ago and and i can get at least eight eight making better if there's nobody. They want draft next year or they can do both so i really think does again. This is it. Cleans up the issue next this year. Doesn't think that the issue admixture Twenty one but not twenty twenty two. I'll get the words out right and But they had to do it they had. They're pushing recent. They had to start doing some of the stuff. Now and i know people are upset. I know people who have blue. Jones jersey are upset. Or he's guy all blob. This is as i said these are. These are businesses wrapped around sports. It's not other way on an and it's just the reality tonight is i wrote at night. I car the forty niners Thought they traded joe montana zapped. I moved to land. But they did as i was hearing. The hawks traded. Dominique wilkins was on the plane. When the braves traded the gohmert the with the murphy flying philadelphia. Oh my god. They traded bill murphy. I grew up in atlanta. But i knew what he met here. And so It's it's just happened to know or interesting. When you mentioned some of those trades because even with montana they had someone waiting in the wings. They had steve young waiting in the wings. And i think what sort of bosom of talk about who and he's going to go down as the one of the greatest players on the falcons maybe at the wide receiver position ever but they drafted calvin ridley in many people consider him a wide receiver. One and i see that sort of as a parallel with that montana. Young situation where you don't necessarily want to let go of this guy. In the ideal scenario he retires with the franchise. But you have someone waiting to take over that spot when when he's gone and it solves multiple problems with the cap and with Being able to elevate calverley immediately to that wide receiver position And then even with del murphy. I remember that That trade massive braves fan. That was devastating to me at the time. And he's a former Mvp award two times with the brakes And this guy you would think. Oh he's going to be a brave for life to steal the phrase from arthur blank and these businesses are they're brutal they don't the debt loyalty only go so far in as much as that. The team is still winning and they have the money to pay these guys so one last thing. I want to run by. Because we've heard this a lot in a i think you've dispelled it multiple times in. Its a narrative that keeps going. Around with the falcons in your one of the few people that i think has has reported on this Differently than many people. There has been this idea. That when the falcons restructured matt that they are now in win now mode they want to win now and that that restructure is a signal that they plan to try to compete immediately for a super bowl and then when they drafted cow pits that win long that narrative their win now mode and of course what came along with that is. Why would you be win now. Mode and then trade away. Julio jones when you can have the best offense in the league What do you say to this. I did the falcons knows..

"Line how we got here. With the julio jones trade for those who have been in a cave for awhile. Julio jones has been traded tennessee titans in exchange for a second round pick and fourth round. Pick in twenty twenty. Three in the falcons will send the course. Julio to tennessee along with a six round pick in twenty twenty three So jeff we know the compensation we know. The trade is is pretty much done as point. i wanted to backtrack to where a lot of this really started. Which was several years ago. We've found out sort of Through reporting Since really march april timeframe. It seemed like there was a you. Know some consternation. Between julio and the falcons and what. We did that start. Was it in the midst of the contract negotiations. Back in two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen Is it a little bit later than that. Where do you think that things start to go sour between him and the organization nods question database for having me from an economic standpoint. It started in two thousand eighteen because at that point three years left on a contract. Extension the falcons led by thomas smith at that time understood. They probably would be facing an extension the following year even would have two years left and i know they had budgeted in before that two dozen nineteen season to give him an extension even with two years left and i believe it was agreed on by all parties front office jimmy sexton whoever and then out of the blue julio wanted a contract adjustment before doesn't eighteen and i'm i'm pretty certain that the organization was adamant against that that was actually right when i left the agency to go the athletic actually a story inside the week of me leaving. I think some people in the ajc were were convinced that i was holding. The story still have really is not the case. I really out after i left and it was. It was clear that the falcons did not want to make any adjustment number one. There were still three years. Luckily as deal number two They don't have any money in two thousand eighteen. They hadn't budgeted for it but did anyway they did restructure anyway. They got further deeper into the whole. Anyway i think got another tuna three and a half million whatever it was friday and then on top of that the they redid his deal before two thousand nineteen i think ever since that two thousand eighteen season from an economic standpoint there was stress the was laid out to me. Was that. just the closeness And i'm not necessarily including arthur blank but but maybe to some degree. Yes but certainly the closeness with me on the franchise from both ends just wasn't at the same level how much of this was rigid residual from not win a super bowl how much of this was residual of maybe julio wanting some statistical achievements that he was unable to get And you know the slide of the offense and obviously Know avas hill her to the situation to right if if they're not making thirty in the last three years maybe none of this happens to some degree and again quinn. Doesn't get five. Maybe they just kinda go on. And on so i think that is really start at. Where julio where he reached the point of screwed. I'm out of here is that i can answer. I do know this and i wrote. This column is agent. Jimmy sexton is also arthur smith sage. Okay right asli. Only found out very recently. Because i never really paid attention. Arthur smith stage was arthur's may that multiple offers to coach elsewhere. And he was not any jimmy. Sexton would not be doing his job if he didn't tell. Arthur smith look the you want that job just so you know before you go. Who will be wants out. So he knew. I'm sure on some level -tary fought no knew that he wasn't happy Even all that said if he was happy part of me thinks that they might have moved off. Try to move on from any way. They knew they have the gap situation than they were gonna have to get out from under this at some point they had. I realized this is a long answer but just kind of all ties. Together absolutely yeah. They decided they had to restructure matt. matt ryan something. They didn't wanna do They'd already done that. They weren't going to do that. With julio at the absolutely nothing to do with julio and in so basically that's that's where we are The lactic cap hit next year but to get out of the salary this year and they get sick around pitch so yeah they were never going. I picked. i don't know how somebody reported it. I thought it was bs the second i heard it night. Nobody told me that nobody else reported it. And i'll say this if somebody told somebody that they talked about first round pick. This is about the only scenario where i could see it happen. Team called called What we can discuss a first round kick. But you're picking up twelve hulu galil fifteen dollars right and that scenario. Maybe the cocoons go. Okay now. that's not gonna work because they wanted the money off the books this year And they needed. They needed to get off the books issues. So i think that's really. The out of the picture was relisted. And how much do you think that the firing of dan quinn may have been the straw camel's back because we know dan. Quinn had this reputation for being very Beloved within the organization the players love him There was some reporting this morning indicated. That was one of the final straw. Julio even though the team honestly have been losing under dan quinn as head coach so he was frustrated with winning. You would think those two things would wouldn't be held At at the same time. But you think that Dan quinn getting the axe in the way that he did. Maybe with a perth situational bit with with. Julio i dunno i dan. Quinn was very young. Players is a good guy. I love him to death out standpoint. He was a little bit of enable or he did allow julio to manage himself as they put it Allowed himself to taking himself out of players when he wanted to allow himself to to practice. I mean julio knows his own body not spine. I got it but i did mess with the team. The the offense is rhythm to some degree. I'm they'll never stayed out But i just think logically. They know the play. I get it but you still practice for a reason. I'm actually it was upset at. I don't know if he was upset. So much dance firing as much as he was how all the players basically just tainted at some point you know and then suddenly you know who gave a speech or wherever said something. Suddenly they took off and it's like dance job was say the following you tank did again. I think in that sense had been khalil was disgusted. You know With a lot of stuff going on around him specifically i mean. You can't look at something realistic and see a team go. Eighteen thirty you know over three years at basically have continuous continuous backslide from super bowl..

"Not only that. But he's so exciting to watch man. That guy's unbelievable. like kristen. thing. About josh allen coming out of wyoming was always not accurate He's never going to be able to be an nfl accurate quarterback because how could he be after wyoming but the problem is the thing that people missed with him is that who is he throwing into. Right and the biggest difference between josh allen in trubisky. We're gonna talk. Bears is not athleticism. Because they're both very similarly athletically. They both have great ability in terms of on down the field arm talent. It's simply the ability to go through. And i think josh allen you know for him to sit in sit back in the pocket in allow place to develop when that first three was second progression is not there and this has been described to me is just a maturity thing like trubisky breaks down when the play breaks down. He can man and he takes off He doesn't seem to have that calm and collected ability. That like these great quarterbacks. Have and i always wanted to succeed because he he really has great athleticism and and you want a guy like that to succeed because he didn't play a lot in college and you thought you could buck the trend. But he doesn't. He doesn't allow the play to develop in the way. That josh allen does and i think for the bills to have this much success this early on in his career. Almost five thousand yards thirty seven touchdowns pro bowl thirteen and three. It reminds you a lot of jim. Kelly he's the first quarterback. Josh allen is the bills have had since jim kelly. So i'm i'm obviously really excited if i'm a buffalo fan that whole bills thing but also if i'm a barest and i'm i'm disappointed because i think you know in the right system with the right accountability.
