Guest Host Rich Zeoli Dissects 'Queers for Palestine'
"Subjects, including topics such as the Israel -Hamas war, pro Palestinian protesters, anti -Semitism, liberalism, immigration, etc. The latter portion of the interview was opened up to a question and answer segment involving live audience in attendance. So one of the audience members asked what she made of pro Palestinian protesters using slogans such as queers for Palestine. And that's actually a thing. That's actually a real thing that really happened on nutty college campuses as well. Now, the answer here is spot on. funny, It would be you know, it's just material for comedy if it wasn't so stupid. And she then went on the to highlight lack of acceptance for LGBTQ plus people in fundamental Islamic societies. The Islamic Republic of Iran is in place. Hamas was actually governing Gaza. And what were they doing to homosexuals? She asked. They throw them from tall buildings, she said. Families, if you're a Muslim family within your family, there's someone who's suspected of being gay. It's the obligation of the family to commit honor killing. So it doesn't even go as far as the government and tribunals and trials. But when that happens, it's done quite publicly. done And it's in the most gruesome fashion. So Queers for Palestine, I think, is just another manifestation of how our society has just become really, really stupid. Yeah, no, I mean, this is again, this is what I mean about the disconnect between what goes on in nutty college campuses, which is really every college campus in America right now. You've got people there, you know, Rainbow Queers for Hamas and whatnot. These people would kill them in a heartbeat. They don't want them even being allowed to speak in public. There's no freedom. There's nothing other than hatred anyone for who does not live by their lifestyle. That's it. That's the only thing you have to know. And yet, when people are brainwashed into believing that Hamas is the victim, they're the good guys here. They're the freedom fighters. They're fighting for freedom for the Palestinian

A highlight from Bitcoin ETF Frenzy | Bloomberg Intelligence INTERVIEW
"All right today we're going to dive into some ETF news but also some analysis from the experts really looking at the potential of what ETFs might mean for crypto in general but also of course Bitcoin. We'll dive in deep. My name is Paul Berra. Welcome back in to Tech Path. Joining me today is James Safert who is an ETF analyst over at Bloomberg Intelligence. Great to have you back James. Thanks for having me on Paul. Happy to be here. Excellent. Excellent. Last time we had you on early stages of a lot of the ETF activity. I won't let you off the hook about the ETH ETF though because we're going to ask you about that. The potential. But I want to go into first of all a little bit about what's been happening over the last 60 days. And most of this has been around the potential for BlackRock. And let's just kind of get that question out of the way. Obviously BlackRock I would say the number one at least institutional asset manager out there that's being looked at as possibly could be the leader. In your opinion you look at all the filings that have been made. What is going to happen when we do get these approved? If they all come at once do you feel like BlackRock just automatically wins the race here because they're BlackRock or do you think there would be some others that could really win some marketing points? Yeah. So the way that we look at the space is it's a winner take most world. It's not like there's going to be a winner take all type situation. You can't overlook the fact that Grayscale already has 20 billion in assets right now based on the current valuation. So they're also going to be a big player. So there's going to be anywhere we look in the ETF space there's usually one big leader who gets most of the assets, possibly most of the flows and the trading volume. But usually there's other aspects of what these issuers will find ways to differentiate themselves. So in gold ETFs some ETFs are going to be way cheaper than the most liquid ones. So that's grown. Some are going to store through their gold and Swiss vaults instead of the London vaults. So I suspect we'll see something similar on the Bitcoin side of things. You're going to have issuers that are going to focus on the fact that they've been dealing with advisors themselves and talking to them about what this space looks like and what it's going to look like and offer to be like we know this space very well. We're not just an asset manager. We're putting blockchain and crypto first. So people focus on that and then the people that will say like we're going to lend out the underlying Bitcoin and give you dividends or offer very, very near zero fees. Some will talk about like different custodians are going to possibly market on the custodians they're using. As we know, we've seen that has been an issue. So there's like a whole bunch of different ways, but it is likely to be winner take most in this world. And BlackRock obviously is likely to be the leader. But the idea that we have GBDC and Grayscale already existing with 20 billion assets is that's a huge thing to hurdle even if you're BlackRock. So based on you guys's analysis, if you look at the ETF services that could be offered because there's probably going to get some fairly creative services within these companies, what would you think would be one of the most critical things that a BlackRock or 21 shares or even a Fidelity could bring to the market to say, this is what we're going to do. We're going to come out and kind of hit with a splash and try to draw in these investors. I mean, the easiest, most simplest one is going to be fee, right? No matter what you do, no matter what your offerings are, if you're charging double the price of everyone else, you're going to have a hard time competing. Right. But also, you hinted at it. We think there's going to be a lot of marketing around here. BlackRock is likely going to market the hell out of this. You're going to see ARK in 21 shares. We've already seen VanEck start to market this type of stuff already. So we're going to see a lot of these players try to market and get to advisors. Directly to retail, they're going to be talking about why their products are better versus the others. But like I said, it tends to be a winner -take -most type world in the ETF space, particularly when you have just a single asset here, right? It's just giving exposure to this one thing. So people are going to differentiate on what they do as a firm and the products individually and who knows where it's going to go. But like I said, one of the things I did mention is in gold, there are some ETFs where if you have enough money, for the most part, you can't redeem the actual gold. But there are some ETFs that like, if you have $10 ,000, they'll deliver it right to your doorstep, things like that. So there might be a similar situation in crypto down the line and won't, not initially, but that might be a case down the line where like, if you have a certain amount, they'll send it to a private wallet. Right. Right. Okay. You mentioned something here about retail and because I look at this and this was in reference to an article, you know, Crypto Reshaping the American Dream for Younger Generations. This is a report by Coinbase. And within the Coinbase art or the Coinbase report, there were a few things that they pointed out to. One of course, was this millennial age group, 26 to 40. And a lot of this was around just crypto and blockchain as kind of the future of finance. Millennials really see this as a big opportunity. When you look at retail and you look at the current runway for a lot of these institutions today, do you feel that the target audience, because it seems like the millennial audience could be the new holy grail of the investment class, especially in reference to retail. Do you think owning that would possibly put someone out in front or do you think it's going to be kind of old school capital that could be leading the way at first? What are your thoughts on that? So specifically for the ETF, it's probably going to be more the advisor type of space that it's going to be looking at this. I mean, if you're a retail person, anyone, if you really wanted exposure to this, you could have downloaded Coinbase or Gemini or any app, FTX, you could buy at the click of a button. So one of the parallels we like to look at is like when gold ETFs came out, they democratized investing in gold. Yeah, you could always go down to like the corner street and buy like some gold coins, but that's very different from having it in a like professionalized portfolio. So that's more what the ETF is going to do. We don't think the one thing it will do for retail potentially is if you're a trader and you're like to trade these things in and out, the ETF is going to be way cheaper than a lot of these platforms. It's going to trade penny wide, there's going to be no commissions, which is not the case for most of these platforms. So the real people that are going to use these products if and when they get approved are really going to be institutions and advisors who maybe they have clients who have money in their own personal accounts on the some of those apps I mentioned, and it would just be way better if like we could control it. If an advisor, they know exactly how it is, they can basically sell when it gets too large of a portion of the portfolio and buy more when it dips below because we know we all know how volatile the market is. So just getting that professional management. Also from the advisors perspective, if I'm an advisor and you're my client and you're buying this on Coinbase or FTX, I don't know what you're doing. And also I'm not making money. That's not under my purview. Like typically the most advisors nowadays they charge an AUM fee. So whatever those total assets are, they're going to charge a slight fee on those total assets. And this brings us under that umbrella. So what ETF is going to do is going to put DeFi on the TradFi rails in a way that hasn't been done yet, which again kind of goes against the ethos of many of these things. But it's not going to detract from the underlying ethos of Bitcoin and what people want it to be. It's just going to be additive to people who want it in a different basically wrapper. Yeah. I was looking at your partner, Eric Balshunis in there, this is one of the many reasons so bullish on ETFs and think they'll dominate for decades to come is their usage is inversely correlated to age. Eighty -nine percent of millennials say the vehicle of choice versus boomers, which is though it is increasing in the survey data that came in from Schwab. But I guess the future is really going to lean toward these other alternative investors who are going out to advisors and saying, hey, I've got some assets here I want under management and here we go. And with that being the case, you've already got a mindset that's starting to restructure how capital might be deployed in the future. Is that something where do you think the switch would happen? Is there a time frame that you say, OK, maybe over the next three years, this we could truly see a shift in the demographic data that could push these ETFs into kind of a stratosphere? Yeah, so like if we're just looking at ETFs in general, one of the things I track, I obviously don't just cover crypto. I look at the whole space. And one of the big trends recovering is mutual fund to ETF transition, which goes to a lot of those things that Eric was pointing out, specifically on the ETF side. It's not going to be like these things launch and all of a sudden they're going to get like billions of dollars in in one week. Like I said, it's going to be institutions. So a lot of institutions, endowments, pensions, they have restrictions on what they can and cannot hold. So they have to hold securities or bonds, what have you. They can't hold this thing directly. Putting in an ETF wrapper allows them to hold it. So if there is there and we know for a fact that our institutions out there that want to have a one percent allocation to this thing, this might be a way for them to do it. The other part of it is basically it's the advisors, right? They're not going to if they want to put maybe some portion of their clients they think would fit to have a one, three, five percent allocation to a product like this. They're not going to do it the day it launches, right? They're going to do their due diligence. They're going to look at things or they're going to slowly put it in over time. So it'll be like an allocation that goes on over the next one, one to three years, kind of like you mentioned. So it's more about the long term impact of these things being launched necessarily than necessarily like, oh, this week it's launching and all of a sudden it's going to send things to the moon, if you will. That's unlikely to happen, in my view, personally. So obviously we'll get an initial splash once these do hit the market. That's going to be kind of the case. Is there any framework of what you guys think at Bloomberg would be the kind of inflows that would be relevant to what the size of this asset class is? I guess it would be similar maybe to what gold or is it even similar to gold that first hit the ETF market? Yeah. So when we look at gold ETFs, which is like something that people kind of overstate, gold ETFs in the U .S. have a hundred billion in AUM. This is, I mean, Bitcoin ETFs aren't going to get there anytime soon, in my opinion. And like I said, Grayscale, I mentioned like twice or three times already, GBC already has 20 billion in assets. So the idea that all of a sudden there's going to be hundreds of billions in these products in any sort of shorter timeframe than years or decade out is kind of unlikely. But yeah, I think of the upper limit or in like a three year time frame would be that a hundred billion number maybe, but there's no way to actually know what type of money's going to come in. The problem is like, we don't know what advisors are going to do, right? Are they going to do that 1 % allocation, 3 % allocation, 5 % allocation and what percent of advisors are going to use these products? And then also what percent of their clients are they going to want to hold these? Not every, this isn't going to fit for every single client in the world, right? It's going to fit for a subset of clients that they feel like meet their risk profile. So deciding that. So it's hard to really know Galaxy actually did a really good piece on this. I'm trying to guess the numbers. They guess I think 14 billion in the first year, but there's also a lot of things going on. We don't know how much money is going to come out of Grayscale because a lot of money that's in there was specifically playing what was going on with the premiums and discounts. And not necessarily like, Oh, I want this exposure. It was more like, this is a trade I'm making to bet on the discount closing or to bet on the premium or something like that over the last five years. So there might be some flows that are come out of there that might not go into some of these other ETFs. Now, how much of that is going to happen? I don't know. So here's a question to you is with Bloomberg, the way you guys analyze ETFs, but also the advisors within the industry, is there any data out there showing the demographic of the actual advisors? Because I would think that if they are falling into the millennial audience, they may kind of be leaning a little bit stronger into these kinds of assets. Yeah, there are a lot of advisors that are leaning into that. So like this, this kind of gets a little bit out of my wheelhouse. We don't have a lot of the advisor data because most of that is like survey data. There are a lot of really good sources that get into that and we'll use those other sources and let me try to figure out what's going on. But for the most part, a lot of the advisors are much older crowd that aren't really interested in this. That said, if you have a client and you're older and the client says they want exposure to this, this is the way that they're going to do it, right? They're not going to open a Coinbase account for them. They're going to go through and just buy this ETF if it's allowed, even allowed. There's a process that could take one few months or two, three years where these platforms have to get the okay from their risk metric teams and compliance teams to actually be even allow advisors or anyone to brokers to even buy these things for their clients. So who knows how long that could take. You mentioned Grayscale obviously kind of being a potential leader, I guess, going out of the gate. What is the next step for them? Obviously, they've had a much further advancement, but why not, why are we not seeing this just going out as a listed ETF right now? Yeah, that's a good question. I don't actually know. The real answer is like they won their court case, right? And there's likely a conversation that's happening between the SEC and Grayscale. Grayscale saying, probably pushing the argument that, look, the deadlines and the statutes say if there is no issued order here, then all of a sudden we're approved. And your order was vacated and that timeframe means we are de facto approved, which that's a legal framework that's unlikely to actually ever happen in the real world, but that's probably what they're saying to the SEC. I'm assuming the SEC was saying, no, you're going to restart and refile this whole process, which is a 240 -day process to go through this and then we'll talk. And then I'm sure there's some like haggling going back and forth. We'll make a deal. We'll refile if we get X number of days, like you guarantee we're going to give us an answer or maybe even just the SEC is telling them we're going to give you an answer on what's going to happen in the next 30 days. We don't know. It's completely quiet. I thought we would have had an answer to like what the next steps are and what's happening last week, the last week or the week before. So I was like thinking by last Friday, we'd have an idea of what's going to go on. And I think I actually tweeted this out. I was like, we have nothing. They're completely quiet. So we're entering a zone right now starting tomorrow where theoretically they could start approving some of these things. Obviously, I'm not saying that that's what's going to happen, but like up and tomorrow is the first date that it could theoretically happen in the last of the next few months. All right. So with that being the case right now, I know you and Eric have kind of looking have been doing these percentage of probability ranges by end of year. Where are you guys at now on this? We're still at 75 percent by the end of the year, but we think basically one thing that goes into all this is we think the SEC is going to try to allow most, if not all of them to launch on the same day. They're not going to play kingmaker. They played kingmaker with Bitto, which is the pro shares Bitcoin futures ETF, got a billion and a half or over a billion in two days dominate. They have 96 percent of the assets, 96 percent of the volume. They utterly dominate. I don't think they don't want to do that again. So I think the SEC is going to try to find these like angles and areas where they can allow a whole bunch to launch at the same time. And like I said, one of those one of those like time periods starts tomorrow and goes through like roughly the 17th, maybe the 21st, depending on with all these other filings. But if you include GBTC, there's 12 active applications right now in front of the SEC. So the SEC might have to figure out a way to do this. So like I said, November could happen. There's also a period in December. Our view is that the final deadline for ARK and 21 shares is January 10th. And I just don't think if they deny then by that January 10th deadline, if they wait all the way up until that deadline, which they don't have to, they can go very early if they want to. We saw that in September. They went months early in some of these cases. They will approve by January 10th is our view. We're at 90 percent on that now. That said, if they deny at that time period, it's unlikely that they're going to deny ARK in January and then approve everything else in March, which is when BlackRock and all these other issuers are due. So we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. But we think we're at 75 percent this year. I think they could try to get it done just like before the Christmas and New Year holidays. So it's kind of a tight squeeze to fit it in like right after New Year's and before that January 10th deadline, unless they have everything ready to go. And again, the next like opening where we could see like a wave of approvals is later this week, potentially into next week.

Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on local now channel 525. Hello, my friends. I'm Dennis Prager, and I hope you had a good weekend. I have delved into the question of how good a weekend or a good any day one could have when the world is so filled with evil and one has to try despair as a sin, as I have noted on a number of occasions based on my Bible commentary. Hi, everybody. Good to be with you. This is late breaking. I normally don't have the show driven by news as it breaks, but this is an important—many of them are important, but this is, I believe, worthy of immediate attention. This is from Newsweek. Conservative social media personality Steven Crowder teased the release of a manifesto allegedly written by an accused school shooter in Nashville, Tennessee, where six victims died earlier this year. Boy, I'll tell you, Newsweek is really—this sentence is so gingerly phrased. Let's see. The manifesto is allegedly written by an accused shooter, not the shooter. Six million victims died, not were murdered. In a video posted Monday, that's today, to YouTube, Crowder said the manifesto was leaked and shared screenshots of portions of the document which was believed to be written by Audrey Hale, 28, whom authorities identified as the shooter. They also said Hale, who died at the scene, once attended the school. By the way, that is interesting that they say allegedly. You say allegedly when somebody is about to stand trial, but if the person was shot at the scene, you don't say allegedly. What was Audrey Hale doing there? Checking out school curricula? No, it's a little too ginger. Anyway, I will be reading the manifesto here on this show. I wish that I wouldn't have to, Crowder said in the video. In a post to X, formerly Twitter, Crowder shared other images of the manifesto, including one part that said, I hope I have a high death count. Newsweek has been unable to independently verify that Metro Nashville Police Department spokesperson told Newsweek that the police are unable to confirm the manifesto, but said they are actively looking into the matter. Here's a question for Nashville police. Why didn't you release it immediately? Some authorities had it, and my suspicion is because the manifesto reveals, as was suspected, a left -winger and it was a trans person. So the left sort of has the view, padona misa gosh, there are no enemies on the left. And whereas if the manifesto were some racist, anti -black screed, we would have known about it immediately. So three children and three adults at Nashville's Covenant School were murdered. She later died from gunshot wounds. Shortly after the shooting occurred, this is again from this Newsweek article, police said that they had recovered a manifesto believed to have been written by hell. So why, why was it never released? The ongoing investigation into the March 27 murders of six persons inside the Covenant School continues to show, from all information currently available, that killer Audrey Hale acted totally alone. That's not the question. Well, I'll report to you. There is a report somewhere, but since I haven't seen it, I can't, I won't report it yet, about what it revealed. And it seems to me that if the report is correct, it was a big anti -white kid screed. All right. So we live in an age of moral confusion, as I have warned all of my life. And the charge against Israel that it commits genocide against the Palestinians which a charge that has been made for decades, this is not new to the current war against Hamas, is another gigantic lie of the left. But the truth is not a left -wing value. So I have data here from Statista, which has no political bias that I know of. You agree with me? I don't know. Okay, fine. Statista Infographic Newsletter. Statista puts out statistics. So this is from 2020. Growth of Palestine. Let's see now. The need for peace continues to grow in urgency as Palestine's population is growing at a larger rate than Israel. Jewish and Arab populations are on a collision course of parity in the coming decades, with Arab Israelis also growing faster than Jewish Israelis and gaining more voting power. Then there's a chart, Growth of Palestine. It begins in 1960, and the green is Palestine, the blue is Israel. They have gone from 1 .1 million to 5 .1 million in 2020. So there is a growth of essentially five times growth quintupled since 1960. The Jewish population has quadrupled, has gone up four times the Arab population of the area five times. Have you ever heard of a genocide where the people being genocided have a population growth of 5x? The lie is so grandiose, but you have to know something. The people screaming it believe it, especially those who are Palestinian or from other Arab or Muslim countries. They believe their lies. Read David Price Jones' book, The Closed Circle. You'll see that he's an Arab expert. He lived an exaggeration and lies as being very frequently in the public sphere conflated. Anyway, we're catching up. The truth is that a left wing value in the left wing dominates academia and the media. So much for the charge of genocide. The only attempt at genocide of the Palestinians and their Muslim supporters around the world, they wish to commit genocide against the Jews of Israel, perhaps all Jews in the world, but certainly Jews of Israel. That is the only genocide that can be alleged in the Middle East. Well, there was one, but I don't know. Yeah, I guess you'd call it the Middle East, of course. Do you remember the Yazidis, how they were wiped out by ISIS? Well, virtually, yeah. There was a real, let's put, an ethnic cleansing, let's put it that way. Genocide. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free is a call for genocide. It is a call for the eradication of the Jewish state. There are 22 Arab states, from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean, but there's no room for a Jewish state the size of New Jersey. People just always need to remember that. Should there be a 24th Arab state, one that never existed in the history of the world? I hear some Palestinian speakers actually saying, we are the descendants of the Canaanites. Did you know that? You can meet a living Canaanite. Can you meet a parasite and a Jebusite? He said he was a Jebusite? Is Arafat said he was a Jebusite? I didn't know the man had a sense of humor. And this is what your kids are learning at college. We return. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust?

When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests. So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers. Be cautious of brokers offering free gold and silver or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins, claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver. What about hidden commissions and huge markups? Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed always have your back. I trust this man. That's why I mentioned him by name. Nick's been in this industry over 42 years, and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted relationships.

And the New York Times reports he urged his former aides to, quote, take in the whole truth, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. Would he have done that in World War II? Strike a balance between the killings? Look at how many German civilians we killed. Look at how many Japanese civilians we killed. Would he have said that? I don't know, but to me it would be the same thing. The moral difference between the allies and the Nazis and the allies and the Japanese was no greater than the moral difference between Israel and Hamas. We live in the age of moral relativism. It's infected almost the entire intellectual class. I saw it when I was at graduate school at Columbia University, and professors generally equated the U .S. and the Soviet Union. It was not a battle, the Cold War in their view, between freedom and tyranny, or between, if you will, light and dark, with all the darkness that exists, obviously, in everyone and in every country. There was an unbridgeable gulf between light and dark between the United States and the Soviet Union, but they would not agree to that. It was a superpower battle or a battle of two economic systems, communism and capitalism, as if they are morally equivalent, let alone just equally effective. Well, there are people who build their society with communism and slaughter tens of millions of their people while doing it, and there's another free society which is infinitely wealthier. I remember that when I wanted to get soda from a soda machine when I was there during the Cold War, and I as know that I speak Russian, and so the machine would say, госированая вода, gas gaseous water, meaning like sparkling water. The machines were quite common in Moscow, I don't know about the rest of the Soviet Union, and there was a plastic cup like you would have in a house there, and everyone who got the sparkling water used that cup. Isn't that fascinating? One cup. I drank from it, you know me, I mean, you know, they reported internationally that I, for fork drops in a restaurant, I will actually use it. I am not, shall we say, a hypochondriac, struck but it me as an example, they didn't have the money to have a paper cup used every time and thrown away. Incidentally, I'll tell you what else moved me. I will acknowledge this, because truth is the number one obligation. Nobody stole the cup. I found that fascinating. Here's this former aide to take in the whole truth, unquote. This is Barack Obama this weekend, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. What Hamas did was horrific and there's no justification for it, Mr. Obama said, and what is also true is that the occupation and what's happening to Palestinians is unbearable. Really, what is happening to Palestinians that is unbearable? I'm not talking about the current war in Gaza, which they brought upon themselves just like the Germans did and the Japanese did. Unbearable? Really? Has he or anybody he talked to gone to visit the West Bank? Is life on the West Bank unbearable? Didn't strike me as that way, been there a number of times. All I remember was a lot of cranes building new buildings. And they're obviously having a lot of kids. Generally, having a lot of kids in an unbearable situation tend not to go hand in hand. What is true is that there are people right now who are dying, who have nothing to do with what Hamas did. There were Germans who died who had nothing to do with what Hitler did. That's correct and you blame Hitler for their deaths. You blame Hamas for the death of Palestinians in Gaza. All their money is used to buy rockets and dig tunnels everywhere, including right under hospitals. If there is such a thing as evil, Hamas is it. But after all, if you raise a generation to believe that America is evil, then evil loses its meaning, doesn't it? That is what has happened. Okay. There are no comments. It's interesting they don't have comments on me on this particular story. Dennis Ross is a major figure in Middle Eastern diplomacy. For 35 years, this former U .S. envoy to the Middle East, who has generally been critical of Israel, not anti -Israel, but critical of Israel. For 35 years, I've devoted my professional life to U .S. peacemaking policy and conflict resolution planning. Nothing has preoccupied me like finding a peaceful and lasting solution between Israel and the Palestinians. In the past, I might have favored a ceasefire with Hamas during a conflict with Israel, but today it is clear to me that peace is not going to be possible now or in the future as long as Hamas remains intact and in control of Gaza.
A highlight from Dennis & Julie: Humility and Rationality
"Hello there all, all as I should say having been in Mississippi last week. Y 'all, y 'all, I love y 'all by the way. It works better than you. Hi, Dennis Prager and Julie Hartman. Shalom. And after spending great amounts of money on research, they came up with the name Dennis and Julie. Yes. It was well worth all the money spent. Well, you know what, better simple than bad. Better simple than something stupid. Well, you know, Einstein had a great line about that. I'm curious if you know this. Things should be as simple as pop made as simple as possible, but not simpler. That is a good line. So why did I share it with you? You know, there are a few things like... Isn't it amazing, she's actually starting in on that line. I was sure that that would basically die and we'd move on. Nothing dies on Dennis and Julie. It always starts with an anecdote. It is really funny. Like, you know, the sun was shining today and then... Oh, well, let me tell you about the sun. Yes, yes. And then you go, I have a theory on that. And then I'll tell you I have two suns and it'll just go God knows where. All right, go ahead. As a total aside, it's amazing. You're one of two suns. You have two suns. Oh, no, you don't know. Your son has two suns and Sue has two suns. You never heard me tell you this? No, I think you have. Yeah, my father had two suns, I have two suns, my son has two suns and my wife has two suns. That's all I know. I don't know three and I don't know daughters. Okay, go ahead. You're probably lucky. You're probably lucky that you don't know daughters. My dad is listening like he's lucky. No, I'm not complaining. Okay. I was going to say about names, because obviously when I was naming my show Timeless, I didn't want to call it the Julie Hartman show. No offense to people who call it the insert name show. You can do it because you're famous. It makes sense for you to call it the Dennis Prager show. You were right. Or the Ben Shapiro show. Because people will be like, who the hell is Julie Hartman? And I think it's a very kind of everyone does that paradigm. And again, if you're famous, it makes sense. When you're a little plebeian like me, you probably shouldn't do that. But when I was thinking about names, you know me. I get so intense and think it's this name would be the end of the world if it were bad. And then I kind of came up with this, shocker, theory about names, especially names of talk shows. Unless it's really, really, really bad and stupid, I actually don't think it matters that much. Excellent point. I really don't. I'll tell you, the name of a book is incredibly important. And I say it both as the author of titles that were great and titles that weren't great. That means... So that's interesting. What titles do you not think were great? Well, I don't believe it or not, still the best hope. I think the subtitle should have been perhaps the title. Why the World Needs American Values. I agree with that. Because it doesn't tell you anything. If the title doesn't tell you anything, it's not good. I hate to say it, but I agree. It's not a bad title. No, I know. But I agree with you. It hurts me. Well, it's okay. Clearly people have read and were very influenced by the book. You did. That was your book that influenced me the most. That's why you wrote me and then the rest is history. So at the risk of making it about me for just a moment, I think that God does play a role in each of our lives. If you're aware of it, you can sometimes see the hand of God in the way that he leads you. You certainly saw the hand of God the day that you met your wife because you do all these meet and greets and you stay after to talk to every single person who is an attendee and then literally the last person in line was the best woman you could have ever found and married. So the point is, I think, again, if you look around, you'll be able to see God's hand and things. I think God leads and influences me through book choices. I really do. Because your book, you don't understand, when I was in that time in my life, I didn't read books very much. I'm a fiend now with reading books, but back then I didn't so much. It's amazing to me that I discovered You and PragerU and then I decided to order that specific book. And I think that was kind of divine. And then when it showed up, I actually was going to return it. Not because there was something bad, not because I saw it was still the best hope, but I thought that's a bad title, but because I thought, oh, I ordered too many things. I want to save money. I'm going to return this book. I'm probably not going to read it. And then something told me to read it. I'll give you another example. About a year and two months ago, I literally woke up one morning. This was shortly after I graduated from college and in that summer before I started my job. I literally woke up one morning and I thought, I should reread The Scarlet Letter. And why would I have that thought? I hadn't read it since ninth grade. But something, I literally woke up and I said, I need to reread it. I went into my bookshelf. It was there from high school. I reread it. And now it's one of my favorite books, a big part of themes I talk about in my show. And I did a PragerU book club with Michael Knowles on it. I could give more examples. But anyway, it just made me think that that is the book that led me here. That's still the best hope. Well, let me see since you mentioned it, just for those listening or watching. There is a book of three books about America, about the left, and about Islam. And what a time to read this book. And if you want to understand all three, I think it's the best book that does all three in one. Yes. Okay, still the best hope. Thank you for that. But back to the names thing, I actually don't think names of talk shows matter that much. I that suspect you're right because I can't think of anyone that stands out. It's always either I like the individual or you're right. It matters in books and I don't know where else it matters. It's an interesting point. Even, and this is said with so much respect for The Daily Wire, if you look at the name The Daily Wire, it's not a particularly... Sexy name. That's correct. It's kind of just there. But it doesn't matter. But it doesn't matter because it's... It's exactly right. All right, well said. Anything else on your mind? I got a lot on my mind. So I have an interesting thought for you. So it's been a very difficult time because of the monstrosities in Israel. And this is a good example of... When I tell people about Dennis and Julie, who are big fans of mine and my shows and my writings and so on, I say, I promise you that things as open as I am, and I really am on my own show, things are brought out about me in Dennis and Julie that otherwise just don't get mentioned. And it's not because I'm hiding it, but because in dialogue with someone in particular you... So here's a good example of something I didn't mention on the show. I did tangentially, but not the way I'm going to mention it now. So it's been a very intense time since the horrible attacks on Israel, the greatest loss of Jews in a day since the Holocaust. It's really been difficult. And the world changed. Well, I hope it changed, to be honest. We'll see. I don't know how long human memories are, but maybe it did. We'll get to that in a moment. But this is actually just a personal and professional note, not a big macro note, but it is interesting. So I always go over with Alan, my producer, the show, but basically not so much the show because I don't know what I'll talk about until five minutes before. No, that is literally true. Yes, it is literally true. It used to give me a heart attack, but now I know it's just you. There are times I come up with the subject as the theme music comes on. Oh, I am aware. So what we talk about is, I will say, who were any guests today? So he said to me, again five minutes before the show, at the middle hour of the show, I asked Jerry Zucker, David Zucker, and Jim Abrams to come in. The book about their movie Airplane, which happened 43 years ago, has just come out, their memoir of the movie. And I said, wait, Israel has just undergone the most horrible attack in its history, the greatest attack on Jews since the Holocaust, and I'm going to talk about Airplane? And he said, people need a respite. where So here's I say I'm being open to the point that I wasn't even on my own show. I didn't agree with Alan, but I didn't say anything because, A, he's the producer, and unless I'm passionate, I'm not going to override a decision he makes. And he has excellent judgment. And that's the whole point. That's right. You hit it on the nose. And he has excellent judgment. So there are a lot of lessons in this. I think, in retrospect, he was right that we needed a respite. And this was as far afield as you could get. The 43rd anniversary of one of the five most successful comedies ever made into a movie. And with the authors and the three authors and the writers and the all three were also the directors. So a few lessons, because I'm very big, if I can't learn a lesson from something, it's like it didn't happen. So one is, you really do have to know in life whom to trust over your own judgment. If you think you're always right, even about your own life, forget about politics and stuff, you're not going to lead an enriched life. You will make a lot of boo -boos. Oh, this is so important. It's a great subject. Yes, so this is a gift, I admit, I don't even consider it praiseworthy. It's just a gift that I was given to always ask, what can I learn from X and Y and Z? But the reason is so that I could share it with the public. I want to help people lead a better life. That's my corny ambition with my life. So that's a very, very big one. And I have great faith in my judgment. We're not talking to Mr. Silly Putty here. I have strong convictions, but I trust him.
A highlight from How the US Stole $3 Billion in BITCOIN! (CRAZY STORY)
"The secret Bitcoin billionaire. It's a story involving partying, burglary, online drug markets, and the IRS. His name is Jimmy Zong, and at one point he held over $3 billion of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. It was stored in this popcorn tin in his lake house at Gainesville, Georgia, before being seized by authorities. The saga dates back to the earliest days of Bitcoin and ends right in my backyard of Athens, Georgia. It's time to discover the secret Bitcoin billionaire. Jimmy's story starts in the earliest days of Bitcoin. He was mining as early as 2009, the year Bitcoin launched, and boasted he mined over 300 ,000 Bitcoin. This is a value of over $9 billion today. He contributed to the Bitcoin code and even offered ideas to the early developers on how to reduce blockchain size. But Jimmy would go from being an early architect of Bitcoin to the world's most infamous Bitcoin hacker. The year was 2012. Silk Road had been launched the year prior by Ross Ulbricht, a libertarian who believed in the power of free markets. He created Silk Road so people could buy and sell anything they wanted, including a legal contraband, without government interference. It was like the Wild West, but with more drugs and less horses. The Walmart of the Dark Web, and it was an instant hit. It was a hit for Jimmy as well. Jimmy had developed somewhat of a reputation as a party animal in the downtown Athens bar scene. And not only was he a party animal, he was willing to splurge. Here's Jimmy's friend, Stefana Masich, describing Jimmy's behavior while downtown partying. buy He would me and my friends drinks, and then there were multiple times too where he would buy shots for everyone at the bars. He would buy shots for every single person in the bar? I mean like 100 people? Yeah, pretty much. But Jimmy didn't stop at alcohol, however. While downtown at a bar, he once bragged that he had $30 ,000 of cocaine back at his house. So, Jimmy was in a restaurant talking to some girls, and he happens to mention that he has $30 ,000 worth of blow at his house if they want to come back and party. $30 ,000 worth of coke. $30 ,000 of cocaine. Unfortunately for Jimmy, there was an off -duty police officer sitting in the restaurant one table over. That's just bad timing. It was really bad timing. Bad timing indeed. According to Jimmy, he used Silk Road to purchase the illegal substance. But Jimmy wouldn't just be a user of the site. He would later hack Silk Road for 50 ,000 Bitcoin. The details surrounding the hack seem odd for someone with Jimmy's knowledge of computer sciences. It wasn't exactly the criminal plans of a mastermind, rather something much more simple. In his statement, Jimmy says that the way he stole these Bitcoin was he was withdrawing some assets from Silk Road. He had been using it to purchase cocaine, and he realized if he simply double clicked, he could withdraw more than he had put in. Is that what happened? To the instance that he would just double click the withdraw button, we don't know the answer to that question. I mean, that seems awfully simple. But at the time, Jimmy wasn't punished. In fact, he was rewarded. According to Jimmy, Ross Ulbricht was so impressed, he reached out to offer a bonus for discovering the flaw. In addition to letting him keep the 50 ,000 Bitcoin for discovering the vulnerability, Dread Pirate Roberts gave Jimmy an additional 5 ,000 Bitcoin. However, it is important to note that whether or not Jimmy Zong and Ross Ulbricht had communication is in question. The federal prosecutors investigating the case were unable to find any proof. My name is Trevor MacLeanon. I'm a special agent with IRS Criminal Investigation. Jimmy alleges it. We couldn't find any evidence to support that position. But at the time of the hack, Bitcoin was only $10 a coin. But as Bitcoin ballooned in price, the 50 ,000 missing Bitcoin garnered more and more attention from the IRS Criminal Investigation Division. But it would be years later before there is a crack in the case. Here's Sean McGruder, Blocktrace CEO. His company is a contractor for the IRS and other government agencies that assists with complicated blockchain transactions. One of these special agents who I work with on the team calls me and says, hey, Sean, can you help out and assist with this? We can just take a look at it, you know, over the course of the weekend, that'd be great. And this was on a Friday. By Monday, I came back with an answer and said, hey, I think we might have something here. That something ended up being Jimmy's downfall. It was a big mistake from a small transaction. Jimmy had once sent $800 worth of his funds to an exchange with KYC, or Know Your Customer. An exchange with KYC will require their customers to share their name and identifying information. After another unexpected big break, investigators would follow these clues right to Jimmy's doorstep. That big break would actually be a break in. After a trip with friends that Jimmy lavishly paid for, he would come back home to discover his house in Athens, Georgia, had been broken into. The thieves would make out with more than $400 ,000. And even though he was sitting on tens of thousands of stolen Bitcoin worth billions of dollars, Jimmy turned to the police. He shared with authorities that in addition to cash, the burglars had stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Bitcoin as well. This was an opportunity that federal authorities would not let go to waste. They reached out to the Athens Police Department to see if they could use this home invasion as a pretense to search Jimmy's home. They asked me about the Bitcoin and how much was in there and if he talked about where he got it from or anything like that. And I really didn't have the answers for him. But I told them, let me email them and I'm sure Jimmy will meet with us. Jimmy quickly agreed and Lieutenant Jody Thompson, Agent Trevor Macklin from the IRS, and Sean McRuder go visit Jimmy in Athens. Lieutenant Thompson's body cam was rolling the entire time. Zong, without hesitation, lets the investigators write in. Hey, this is Trevor and Sean. They're going to be with the team. Once inside, investigators get Jimmy to open his laptop and log in. What was on the laptop screen would shock investigators. When you're sitting next to him on the couch, he opens his laptop. What do you see on that screen? Low and behold, he had $60 or $70 million worth of Bitcoins right there next to us. So with one glance at the screen on his laptop, you could instantly tell this is a guy who's a credible suspect. He could have pulled this off. That's right. Authorities now had enough to execute their search warrant. Inside they would find $700 ,000 in cash. And inside a bathroom they stumbled upon a Cheetos popcorn tin. Inside the tin was a computer holding the stolen funds from Silk Road. Jimmy Zong's reign had come to an end. The party animal, the secret Bitcoin billionaire, had finally been caught. Jimmy was arranged on charges of wire fraud. And after a tense courtroom battle, he chose to plead guilty. The judge handed down a sentence of one year and a day in federal prison. Jimmy started serving his time behind bars at the federal prison camp in Montgomery, Alabama, July 14, 2023. The end of the saga saw Jimmy stripped of his illicit digital fortune. The U .S. government seized the stolen Bitcoin, ensuring that this chapter of cybercrime was firmly closed. The once daring, hacking maestro had lost everything. As Jimmy exited the courthouse on April 14, a throng of reporters clamored for a statement. Jimmy draped his coat over his head and briskly made his exit, leaving the questions unanswered and the world wondering. Why'd you steal the money, Jimmy? In the end, the secret Bitcoin billionaire's empire crumbled, not with a bang, but with a subdued exit from the world stage. Jimmy Zong, once a key figure at the heart of the digital frontier, now just another shadowy hacker behind bars.
A highlight from Mavericks introduce chaos as empowerment
"In today's conversation I speak to John Mark Williams about how mavericks introduce chaos as empowerment. We also look at why the Institute of Leadership and Management changed to the Institute of Leadership and what that did to the culture. John and I also look at the importance of leadership in embracing change and inspiring others and in this conversation we discuss the importance of being mindful of the impact of your words, setting clear expectations and promote effective collaboration. We also look at the value of playing games and taking on different perspectives to encourage critical thinking and non -threatening discussions. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is John Mark Williams. How are you doing John? I'm doing very well thank you very much indeed Judith, I'm delighted to be here, absolutely delighted. I am so delighted to have you as well but before we even kick off I am interested, is there any sports that you particularly enjoy doing? Two I suppose really, one is running at which I am nowhere near as good as I used to be, time moves on and stuff like that and the other one actually is riding around the forest on my bike, my mountain bike. I really enjoy that quite a lot as well so those are the two things that I do most of. That's interesting, do you like that because you're out in nature and you like it? Partly yes, absolutely yeah and especially because I go into Thetford Forest which is a very large sort of man -made forest in eastern England and there are so many trails to follow and so many paths to follow and it's reasonably flat and at my stage of life it's actually quite nice not to have to go up on a mountain on a mountain bike. I get you, I get you. All right then, so John tell us a little bit more about you outside your running. Yeah I suppose I'm one of these people who sort of fell into the things that I do now. I spent quite a lot of my early career doing a variety of things, things like stockbroking and being an electrician's mate and being a glazier and working on a building site and then I did a stint as a civil servant and all sorts of things. However there are probably two themes that have run since I stopped working on building sites, probably two themes that have run through my career. One of them is international business and I've been very privileged to do quite a lot of business internationally including living overseas and having my own company overseas in Hong Kong and because I've discovered that I suppose that an awful lot of us and myself, I'm no exception to this, actually don't get much leadership development before we end up getting the burden of leadership to carry and it was one of the things that I noticed was that actually you know it's not that difficult to help people to become better leaders if we can give them opportunities, help them make contacts, help them discover role models, stuff like that. So as my career developed from looking for stuff to do internationally I began to do more and more around supporting people into leadership roles and in the end of course that's where I am now running the Institute of Leadership which is sort of a job that's been waiting for me for 25, 30 years or something like that I think. That's such a lovely thing to say, do you see it as kind of the pinnacle of your career like everything you did led up to this point? Yeah absolutely and there comes a time I think in everybody's career I suspect when there's not much point in trying either to get further up the ladder or to do more of something. Actually we just discovered that I think that I'm in a position where I can probably add optimum value for the people that I engage with, you know connecting them with all sorts of information opportunities, content, stuff like that and actually if I'm adding optimum value I probably ought to just carry on adding optimum value. So I'm sort of yeah I think this is probably the best role I've had in my career both in terms of how much I enjoy it and how much value I'm able to add for other people. Wow you know what one of my aims is to have more people actually say that, more people that go to work out and say I love my job, I love what I do. Yeah absolutely and in actual fact it's funny isn't it because we get so many messages through life that say you need to do more, you need to do better, you need to earn more, you need to live in a big house, you need to somehow need always to do more and more and more instead of actually let's just do enough, enough to make us reasonably happy, enough to make other people reasonably happy with what we do and actually I suppose for me the outcome of our efforts during life ought to be, I don't know whether we call it fulfilment or happiness or whatever it is but that point we reach where actually I don't really need to do different stuff, I just want to get better at doing what I'm doing now. Oh now you're talking about mastery, now you're talking about comfort, isn't that? Absolutely and it's a very zen concept in a lot of people's minds I think really because it sort of precludes this need to acquire more to you know to get more money, get a bigger house, get a fancier job and stuff like this, it actually is all about as you quite rightly, I mean it's the perfect word isn't it mastery, it's about how well we do the things that we do and getting contentment from that mastery. Yeah I totally find that when I'm working with people I hope to instil that pursuit of mastery, knowing that you can never master it and being able to hold that dichotomy isn't it, I'm always wanting to become a master in this whilst recognising I never will be. Absolutely and that's back to that sort of zen thing isn't it really because almost the essence of mastery is the understanding that it's a never -ending journey and actually there's a contentment in that. Yeah I was about to say that, I quite like the fact that I'll never, I would hate it if I knew absolutely everything about leadership and there was nothing more to learn, I mean I'd be so upset. Absolutely, imagine getting to the point in your life you say well I've done it all now, well there's nothing else for me, there's no worse, it's like what was it Alexander who was 33 or something like that, I would hate to get to the stage where I thought well there's nothing else we're doing now.

I'm Bud Sheva and I'm so glad you joined me today because I have a really cool guest. He may not be known to you yet, but educator Jared McGee has some really helpful things to share about impact learning as he tells us all about the Winchington School. It's a really cool school that I was so excited to hear about. Jared and I discuss ways to take what he has learned from his experiences there and mine working for another cool school that you hear me talk about all the time, Arete Preparatory Academy, and apply them to other more traditional schools. There are two things, well there's probably more, but let's focus on two things that make Winchington, Arete, and all the other forward thinking schools out there so successful at getting students to love learning, think deeply, and develop curiosity. And those are, one, daring to dream big about what education can be without the limits of what already is. And this part is so important. Always moving forward, reflecting, refining, and asking how can we be even better? What more can we be doing? It's one of my favorite things about Arete, no matter how great something is, there's always room for growth and improvement. And those are two things we can take into our classrooms and practices as well. Maybe in the confines of a traditional system with all of its challenges, the dreams might be smaller, but dream them anyway and make them happen however you can. And the idea of always growing and improving, well this might seem obvious to you. I suspect that if you're listening to this podcast, you are already on that bus. But even when a lesson or unit is successful, we can reflect on it and say, how can I make this even better? Okay, let's hear what Jared has to say.
A highlight from Two Genesis Creditors Describe Their Frustrations With the Bankrupt Crypto Lender - Ep. 565
"The paperback version of my book, The Cryptopians, is out now. It contains a new afterword covering recent developments in crypto since 2021, when the book went to press. Plus, this version names the person I suspect to be the DAO hacker. In case you never got to read the book in hardback, or, like me, you like to read paperbacks or bedtime reading, order today. Check our newsletter and the show notes for the link, or just search for it at any of your favorite bookstores. It's The Cryptopians, idealism, greed, lies, and the making of the first big cryptocurrency craze. Thanks for reading. They said, in fact, after the 3AC episode, not only have we been recapitalized, but we are massively de -risking our loan book. He said, we're calling back all sort of, we're reanalyzing all of our borrowers, the people who borrow the Bitcoin that we deposit, and we are like changing the risk levels and we are de -risking. We are now much more conservative at our risk level. So if anything, depositing now is a lot less risky than it would have been a year ago because we're calling back a lot of the risky loans and you are now depositing into a loan book that is a lot less risky than it was. In fact, it's safer now because of what happened with the 3AC for you to deposit now. And it kind of made sense, if you believe them. If you believe people are telling you the truth, it kind of made sense what he said that, yes, they would be de -risking the loan book. And so, in fact, you are now taking less risk than you did before.
A highlight from Real Estate Commission Sharing Lawsuit | What Happens Next?
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. We are back. And this is the podcast Julie and I have been working on for the past three days. That's about the commission sharing lawsuits and the fact that really at this point the plaintiffs have won. So we're going to be talking about the ramifications to the industry, only a tiny bit. What we're really going to focus on in today's podcast is what you must be doing now. We, look, you guys are boots on the ground. You guys, agents, that's a majority of our listeners. This podcast will probably have 15, 20 ,000 downloads today and gosh knows how many views on YouTube. 99 .9 % of the people that are listening and watching are real estate agents. And you guys want to know how's this going to affect me, my business, my lifestyle, my ability to pay my bills. We're going to go through all of that on today's podcast. We're going to run probably longer than a half hour because Julie has prepared a ton of notes. And speaking of notes, the notes for today's podcast are mostly down below some of the notes we have. We're using from different websites as Julie and I present, but the notes are there. So you can scroll down at any time if you're on iTunes and Spotify and Stitcher and all the other dozens of places where this podcast lives and of course on YouTube, just scroll down and look at the notes. And when you're there, take a moment to join Premier Coaching. It's the next natural step for all of you. Guys listen, you all know this and if you don't know this, and I'm the first one to tell you, please listen carefully. Everything in real estate has changed. The way you go about just operating on a day -to -day basis has changed for most of you. Some of you, frankly, our coaching clients, you are now 100 % celebrating your best years ever because we've had you operating in what we knew would be this new market for in some cases decades. Some of our coaching clients have been with us for decades and we've always known, Julie and I always knew, and if you're longtime followers of Julie and I, you know, going all the way back, you know, 15 years, even longer, we have always suspected that the Buyers' Agent Commission would become no longer an entitlement of the transaction. And we've always coached and trained you guys to make it so that you have a more formalized approach when working with buyers. And all of those chickens have come home to roost and that's what we're going to be talking about today and what actions you need to be taking now. So Julie, and without any further delay, and Julie does have little allergies again today, so we're going to have to all muddle through that. Yes, sorry if I clear my throat here and there. Okay, so before we talk about how you should be thinking about this, what you should be doing about this, and I even have a quote from some of our coaching clients, how they're dealing with it. What are we even talking about? So a quick little background, just a couple of paragraphs here. What happened last week? Well, here's the headline, Missouri jury finds realtors, brokerages guilty of conspiring to inflate commissions. After two weeks of testimony, the Kansas City jury found NAR, Home Services and Keller Williams, guilty of collusion. And I think many of us were surprised by that. A Kansas City jury has found NAR, Home Services and KW guilty of colluding to inflate or maintain high commission rates through NAR's clear cooperation rule in the Sitzer -Burnett Buyer -Broker Commission lawsuit. You guys have heard about this floating around out there and this is what it's about. The defendants have been ordered to pay damages of $1 .78 billion, that's B, billion. Treble damages could result in NAR and brokerages paying roughly $5 .36 billion. It also appears that it has opened the door to additional potential copycat lawsuits already being filed in other states. All right, so what we're not going to be talking about are the, again, the ramifications to the industry on a whole. Not really getting too much into that because you could argue a bunch of different ways on how could there be any sort of big cabal of people price fixing when that commission sharing thing has been around for a hundred years and all the rest of it. How can there be a conspiracy, that kind of thing? Exactly. There's a lot of other people that will pontificate about that, but like I said, Julie and I are practical and tactical, so we're not going to waste your time on that. Well, because it's already been decided, it probably will be appealed. But right now, Judge Stephan Bao, this is the last part I'm going to read this to him, who is overseeing the suit, still needs to issue his final judgment on the case before the verdict is final. He has a wide latitude in issuing injunctive relief. Now, what's important about that? We have had panic phone calls. I've had some interesting coaching calls. The coaches are, of course, in front of all of this. The question du jour is, am I supposed to change anything right now today? No, because of what I just read. It actually hasn't come down what the judge is going to say will change, right? The jury found the verdict guilty, but now the judge has to actually rule on this. And we're going to, again, let's get to the notes so that just you and I are... Yes, I just wanted to make sure they knew that the whole thing is not just closed and over with. No, exactly, and you and I are holding ourselves back from wanting to talk about the stuff that's interesting about this. All right, so we're going to go through the rules essentially to really clear the air, and then we're going to give you what we feel to be the most likely outcomes over time. Yes, the possibilities, how it could go. Okay, so as always, we start with a mindset point, and point number one is don't panic. The judge has not yet ruled on what changes will be made to how buyer agency actually works. This case, as well as several more, will take months, maybe even years, to be finalized. For most agents and brokers, there will be no immediate changes to be made, but check with your broker in your own MLS to see if any modifications have been made. We should also say, obviously, Julie and I are not advocating for one commission raid or not doing anything like that. No, full disclosures. Yeah, full disclosures. The number one thing is don't panic, and nothing really is going to change in a meaningful way. There's going to be the legal process that's going to play out. National Association of Rulters has filed an appeal, and the appeal could result in, frankly, the whole thing being thrown out. Time will tell over time. We'll be reporting on this so you guys can be prepared, but really, the resolutions that we're going to give you from today's show are going to, I think, calm the waters for a lot of you and help you just focus forward and get back to work. Yes, and point number two, because some of you are freaking out about the word billions in this potential settlement, the question has been, do the brokerages in NAR actually have the money to pay? Well, the actual amounts will likely be smaller due to the fact that not everyone in a class action lawsuit will actually participate in the settlement. Additionally, there will be appeals, as Tim mentioned, that could change the ultimate outcome of these cases, as well as settlement figures, and it might even be thrown out entirely. So someone explained that to me yesterday. So if there's $5 .37 billion, because what happens is a trouble thing, it's tripled. So if it's a billion, now it's tripled. So what we're seeing, and again, Julie and I are not lawyers, and if you are listening to us for legal advice, you're crazy, so just be clear about that. But what we understand has to happen now. Are the attorneys who won the lawsuit are then going to have to go and start sending out the letters and marketing to all these people that may have been adversely affected in the state of Missouri as a result of the judgment? In other words, they're going to have to now put the class together. And so I talked to, actually Keith, and I talked to a couple other people. Generally speaking, best case scenario, they're going to get something like 20 % of the people that could be eligible for receiving part of the settlement are going to want to participate. I don't know if you guys have received cards in the mail and seen advertisements on TV, I'm sure you all have, from class action attorneys. Did you buy a can of Pepsi in 1972 and whatever? You may be eligible to participate in a class action lawsuit. Exactly. So that's where the next phase of all this, and it's going to be primarily in Missouri. So then what has to happen, and this is the part that's really interesting that I didn't know. So it's $5 billion, right? So if only 20%, so the $5 billion is for hypothetically all the people that were adversely affected, but they only get, and I don't know what that number was, say it's 5 ,000, but if they only get 20 % of those people, if that, to participate, then obviously you're looking at 20%, and the total amount that the national brokerages and national association of builders and the rest of it would be hypothetically liable for would be 20 % because they reduce the total amount of money that will be paid out to the actual size of the class. Now, the reason that it's really critical, and NAR is going to do this, is going to appeal the case because in an appeal, if NAR wins, that will pretty much put an end from what we understand to all the future, all the copycat lawsuits, because the attorneys are going to say, well, this one got thrown out. And unless I have, you know, different facts that I might be able to, you know, hang my hat on, I'm going to not even waste my time trying to, you know, chase that rabbit. And that is the reason that NAR had to appeal and is appealing. And a lot of the, you know, brokerages are going to tag along right along with them. That's right. Okay, so that covers the scary billion reporting. Okay, now, what you're all wondering, point number three, what will happen as a result of these lawsuits and settlements? Or I should say, what could happen? The most likely outcome, we're going to do kind of a waterfall approach here, most likely then might happen, and then worst case scenario. Most, and then we'll talk about what we think is probably going to happen. The most likely outcome, the listing contract will change to be more transparent. The seller will have a choice of what to pay the listing agent and what to pay the buyer's agent. There will be two different places to fill out on the contract. Now, some listing agreements are already like this. So if that's how it already is for you, you might not have that big of a change. Now, hopefully everyone, everyone being buyers, sellers, buyer's agents, and listing agents, will still agree that buyer agents have value, because everyone is used to splitting the emissions and sellers are used to paying for both sides, there may not be any appreciable change to how things are done. Now, note, I wanted to use this as an example, because the Northwest MLS, which when we talk about Northwest MLS, that refers to the 26 counties in Northwestern Washington State, basically Seattle and surrounding counties, and going out maybe, you know, halfway into the state of Washington. We have a lot of great coaching clients there. We do. I'm about to quote one of them. In fact, in July of 2022, so quite some time ago, the Northwest MLS did exactly what we just mentioned. It made it very clear that sellers had flexibility in how much commission they would offer to buyers agents. They made it more obvious in the contract, more obvious in the MLS, and gave agents the ability to create their own custom commission agreements, depending on the situation. It also prohibited the ability to search listings based on commission. So all of that was done in one piece for the Northwest MLS in July of 2022. So you might wonder, what happened with that? Well, I happen to have an elite coaching client named Brian Side, who does sell in Seattle. So if you have any referrals for Seattle, send them over to Brian Side. He explains it this way. I'm going to quote him here for a couple of paragraphs. He says, in most cases, sellers continue to pay the lion's share of the buyer -brokers compensation. However, that will continue to be tested. Buyer -brokers must be able to articulate a clear value proposition, or their compensation will be grossly and immediately devalued. OK, sounds pretty familiar, right? That's actually very well -written, too. He's a great writer, actually. I've read a lot of Brian's stuff. Some sellers have already offered zero compensation to buyers -brokers in luxury properties based upon their attitude that if a buyer can afford an expensive property, then they can also afford to compensate their broker. Frankly, being prepared for all discussion points without fear, but rather with facts, will win the day. Brokers must have multiple variations of the seller net proceeds and have actual evidence via their own published MLS closed sales, failed sales, and time on market that demonstrate the list of low or no offered compensation. And then he says, there's just so much to know and do. That is true. And well, Brian's an elite coaching client. And you told me about your coaching call you had with them. And he was basically having, wasn't he one of the ones having his best year ever? He's having a great year. He's actively working because his Northwest MLS has made these changes. He's updating his pre -listing package. I also had great calls with Tammy in Northern Virginia, one of my broker clients. She's like, I have no fear of this because her comment to me was, much like Brian, they're used to using buyer presentations. They're used to getting the buyer -brokers, agents, our coaching clients. Okay. They've been doing this for years. So Tammy was like, I don't think I'm going to have to change anything. So I had a two -stage approach on coaching calls. One is making sure that, I mean, in most cases, I already know if I am their coach, that they are using their buyer presentation, but also that they're remembering to close for the exclusive buyer representation at the end. And they are, and they're fearless about it. So circling the wagons, what Julie is saying, and this is what all of you guys should be doing, whether you're coaching clients of ours or not, and you'd be crazy not to, because we've already done all the heavy lifting for you, is that your approach to working with buyers is going to have to move away from being primarily a social thing. And I don't take that the wrong way. All I'm trying to say is, you haven't had to have a formal presentation. You haven't, to Brian's point, had to explain to the buyer what your unique selling proposition was. 99 % of you have never used an exclusive buyer agency form before. You've never provided the buyer with net sheets. You've never actually taken your service level, your presentation level, your sales skills to the same level as, for example, a listing agent would. Well, guess what? Now you have to. And in Premier Coaching, we've already done it for you. There's a complete buyer presentation in there, complete buyer prequalification script in there. All the things are done. All you have to do is use the things. And those things have been in place as part of our coaching program for almost 20 years. So Julie and I have been there, done that, and coached many, many agents to do that. We did that when we sold real estate. All of our buyer's agents, and we had seven of them at the time, they had to have the buyer agency contract signed, the estate required agency form. They had to have an exclusive buyer agency contract signed. And they had to have the net sheet signed. The buyer came in. The buyer got this nice presentation. The buyer at the end of the nice presentation, the next natural step after a great presentation is obviously they're going to sign the contract. And that's the way it worked. And if they didn't sign the contract, that buyer agent had some options, one of which was not to work with the buyer. That's called being a professional. And that's how you should have been doing it for years. This is why I was thrilled from our coaching calls right after this happened, both from the coaches reporting as well as my own elite coaching calls like Brian and Tammy.
A highlight from SBF TRIAL Podcast 11/03: Reaction From Outside the Courthouse
"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. Sam Bankman -Fried is guilty. Twelve jurors spent less than five hours deciding the facts, and yet they quickly decided that Bankman -Fried was guilty on all seven counts. He defrauded FTX's customers and conspired to defraud them. He defrauded Alameda Research's lenders and conspired to defraud them. He conspired to defraud FTX's investors and customers and to conceal the proceeds by laundering funds. The outcome seemed inevitable. The U .S. Department of Justice had a fully fleshed out case, while the defense, as we've said for weeks, seemed to struggle. Judge Lewis Kaplan visibly appeared to lose his patience with the defendant, though he said Thursday he wouldn't share any personal views on the verdict. I wasn't personally in the courtroom when Bankman -Fried testified, nor when defense attorney Mark Cohen gave his closing. But my colleagues who were there say that some of the jurors looked at the and I say inability in the sense that if he acknowledged some of AUSA Danielle Sassoon's questions, he'd open himself to follow -ups, and if he denied them, he'd open himself to claims of lying. His particular speaking style, trying to answer the question he hoped he'd be asked, sparked admonitions from the judge. The case isn't over. A sentencing hearing has been tentatively scheduled for next March, and Bankman -Fried faces another trial on additional charges around the same time. And, as the court prepared to disperse Thursday, defense attorney Cohen asked about post -trial motions. We'll almost certainly see an appeal, but as I said, this outcome seemed inevitable. The judge decided to keep the jury around until 8 p .m., instead of ending the day at 4 .30 p .m., as usual. The court clerk announced a verdict was reached at 7 .38. Everyone was in the courtroom for the verdict. The overflow room was closed, so we all watched the jurors file in. We saw the court clerk show the judge the verdict form, hand the foreperson, Juror 4, a microphone, ask her for the verdict on each count and poll each juror to confirm the decision was unanimous. Sam, the defendant, Bankman -Fried, whatever you want to call him, had to watch her read out the decision. She didn't look at him while reading the verdict. By 7 .55, it was all over. After she sat down, you could just hear the court sketch artist for a second. Judge Kaplan thanked the jurors for their service, telling them being on a jury is a privilege of citizenship. And then, after dismissing the 12 women and men, the judge returned to business, asking about sentencing hearings and a second trial on additional charges set for March. We're on to the next one. I want to take a moment to just contemplate something. Sam Bankman -Fried was found guilty of serious financial crimes. He left thousands of victims, some of whom are still hoping for anything back that they can get back. He's looking at potentially decades behind bars. Based on the testimony and evidence we've heard and seen over the past month, he was an active and willing participant in the crimes he was convicted of, and his role as a truthful person who made mistakes is suspect. All that being said, it is worth acknowledging that what this means is he's going to spend a decade or a few decades isolated from society at large. If he's released early or after the conclusion of his sentence, he'll be dropped into a world different from the one he left. A decade ago, Bitcoin was worth pennies on the dollar compared to today, and this entire industry I spend my time covering barely existed. Smartphones were relatively infant. People used massive desktop computers instead of tablets, and there were around a billion fewer people on this planet. I'm not saying people should feel sorry for Bankman -Fried or sympathetic toward his immediate future, but it's still worth acknowledging. And finally, a note about this newsletter and podcast. Danny, Sam, Helene, Liz, and I have a month's worth of notes and quirks that didn't quite fit into the normal everyday coverage. Over the next few days or weeks, we'll start sharing those. So stay tuned. Want to follow along? Sign up for CoinDesk's new daily newsletter, The SBF Trial, bringing you insights from the courthouse and around the case.

A highlight from Mike Gallagher Week in Review for Friday, November 3, 2023
"United States Border Patrol has exciting and rewarding career opportunities with the nation's largest law enforcement organization. Earn great pay, outstanding federal benefits, and up to $20 ,000 in recruitment incentives. Learn more online at CBP .gov slash career slash USBP. Welcome into The Mike Gallagher Show week in review podcast. Great to have you here. It is Friday, November the third. It's another week chock full of breaking news. Let's begin with this shocker. Over a hundred college professors at Columbia University in New York City signing a letter in support of pro -hamas protesters on campus. The anti -semitism we're seeing in the streets of America, particularly on college campuses, is astounding and we tackled it this week front and center. Over a hundred Columbia University professors signed a letter yesterday defending students who support Hamas. Can you imagine a college professor supporting monsters who put babies in ovens and and cooked them alive? Can you imagine over a hundred Columbia University professors, Ivy League staffers writing a letter supporting the students who defend Hamas? You'd send your kid to college at Columbia, you'd be out of your mind. You would be out of your mind. If you've got a son or daughter who wants to go get some hugely successful career and they think Columbia University is the path to take, you'd be nuts to let your kid go to Columbia, much less pay for it. And donors, you would donate to Columbia University? Over a hundred professors defending students who are supporting bloodthirsty animalistic terrorists. They put babies in ovens. They raped women and broke their legs before murdering them. They chopped soldiers' heads off. They chopped babies' heads off. And these moron professors, and they are morons, they are ignorant fools, wrote a letter demanding for support the moron students defending terrorism. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has a brand new speaker. He's Representative Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. Democrats are none too happy about this guy. In fact, they are literally denouncing his Bible -believing Christianity. Wait till you hear what MSNBC personality and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to say about Mike Johnson's religious beliefs. Does the Bible inform your worldview? The new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, a little -known congressman from Louisiana, has had the audacity to admit that for him the Bible informs his worldview. Jen Psaki was the White House Press Secretary. She now has her own show on MSNBC, and she is undoubtedly very popular among the left. I want you to hear Jen Psaki expressing her shock and disgust and mortification at the newly elected Speaker of the House, admitting that he's a Bible -believing Christian. So let's take a few minutes to talk about this new speaker. First glance, Mike Johnson does seem fine, fine -ish. Conservative, yes, but he once started a civility caucus with a Democrat. And I mean, if nothing else, he wears a suit and has glasses. How threatening can this guy actually be? Well, he gave us all a little clue as to how he would govern in an interview this week. I am a Bible -believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, it's curious. People are curious. What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun? I said, well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That's, that's my worldview. You heard that right. The Bible doesn't just inform his worldview. It is his worldview. In fact, during his first speech in his new job, Johnson suggested that his election as speaker was an act of God. Talk about a bit of a humble brag there. So what exactly has God apparently called on Mike Johnson to do? Well, his views on policy are essentially what you'd expect from a religious fundamentalist. They're more divisive than they are divine. She's threatened. They're threatened by a religious fundamentalist like Mike Johnson. And you heard what she, the way she described it. It's threatening. We should be scared because he's a Christian. Now you just heard that, right? I mean, I'm not hallucinating, right? I just played a clip from MSNBC and she's got some MSNBC bona fides. She was the White House press secretary. She's no slouch in terms of elocution. She knows what she's saying. She forms the word. She's reading those words on a teleprompter. Let me again repeat what Jen Psaki just told her national audience. We should be scared of Mike Johnson because he's a Christian. Let that sink in. This is the Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review podcast. I hope you'll subscribe. Don't miss any of the great content that we produce every single day. If you missed anything, you'll catch up with us. The Israeli consulate in New York City invited the media to a special event. They shared firsthand evidence of the brutality of Hamas in Israel. This is very difficult to hear, but we can't turn away. We must be aware of what actually happened on October 7th in Israel. Kelly Jane Torrance writes about it. None of us wanted to see such sites, this person writes, but none of us would give up the opportunity. The world needs to know what happened. Journalists, about 20 of us had to leave our cell phones and Apple watches at the door. Some of the footage had never been released and Israeli authorities had their reasons for showing it only to select reporters and some select others like Joe Biden. They're concerned about the feelings of the families involved. They also don't want such horror and humiliation broadcast worldwide. One retired major general and reservist, Mickey Edelstein said, we have values. This reporter said, human beings still have the capacity to shock if one can call Hamas human beings. I will long be haunted by what I saw. The footage eases you into things, she writes, a little. Terrorists fire at motorists on the highway. They enter a kibbutz and blow an ambulance's tires first. They shoot a dog who reminds, who remains shaking on the street. They light a home on fire. Then, then they start entering the houses. Israel collected video from a wide variety of sources, public closed circuit TV, traffic cameras, dash cams of terrorists and of victims, as well as their social media posts and messages at home. You can hear the murderers breathe heavily as they nervously approach their prey. It was almost impossible to watch the council general admitted afterward. He couldn't even stay for the whole screening. A father tries to get his young children dressed only in underpants safely to a backyard shelter. A grenade lands before he can close the door. He's dead. A terrorist takes the two boys back into the house. The security camera captures their devastation. The blast blinded one boy in an eye, the other falls to the ground, plaintively pleading, why am I alive? Why am I alive? Blood is everywhere. A man with his nose blown off, headless Israeli soldiers, an elderly woman clad only in her brightly colored underwear, never meant to be seen by so many. Piles of bodies surrounded by young men, celebrating, chanting Aluakbar. A broken woman is taken from the back of a Jeep, the rear of her pants covered in blood. We can easily understand what likely happened to her. Young men clamor over trying to get a look inside. Women who were raped had their legs broken, then they were killed. So they were raped, they had their legs broken, and then they were murdered. Many times Kelly Jane Torrance writes, I wanted to look away, but I forced myself not to. We journalists had to see so what happened we could tell the world. Yet here is a line from a CBS news piece written by a journalist who saw the footage, quote, in another clip, a militant stands over a man who appears to have been shot in the gut and hacks at him multiple times with a garden hoe. Interestingly, the words terrorist or terrorism don't appear in this piece. They don't appear in the New York Times report of that screening either. I can tell you it was not a militant who stands over a man. A group of terrorists argue over who gets to behead the man. A Thai worker bleeding profusely from his stomach but still alive. Someone hacks at him repeatedly with a hoe trying to behead him. Every single time the terrorist yells Alua Akbar. That difference in detail is why the consulate staff sat through 45 minutes of misery. They need people to see what happened. Sure, dead babies were found without their heads, but who knows who did the deed, according to journalists from serious publications, supposedly publications. serious She says, the hate I witnessed goes beyond those who entered Israel. A young man uses a dead Israeli woman's phone to call his parents and brag of killing 10 Jews, quote, with my bare hands. He pleads to his father, please be proud of me, dad. That's the culture Israel must fight. Then there's New York City. A day after the screening of this video, thousands of anti -Semites marched into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge after a rally at the Brooklyn Museum. At the front were people holding a banner that read, by any means necessary. This journalist who saw these atrocities committed by these monsters, these savages called Hamas, writes, understand what a sign like that means. These people know what happened October 7th. They're gathering in large numbers in New York and cities around the world, including America, to show their support for the animals who committed these atrocities. They are as bloodthirsty as the heavy breathing terrorists whose voices the people of Israel will never get out of their heads. And that's so important. You must know what pro -Hamas demonstrators are. On the pop culture front, actor Matthew Perry, best known for his role on the sitcom series Friends, passed away at the age of 54. He was found in his hot tub in his Los Angeles home, apparently drowned. A very interesting conversation resulted in vaccines with the shocking death of Matthew Perry. 54 years old, he was one of the stars of Friends. He was found dead in his jacuzzi at his Los Angeles home. And right away, people started rushing in saying he was a big pro -vaccination guy. The anti -vaxxers, as they're known, went bonkers, saying, how does a 54 -year -old guy who was allegedly clean and sober, he had had a lifetime of trouble with drugs and alcohol, apparently, rough life, he had gotten his act together, he wrote a memoir last year, and he was lounging in his jacuzzi, and he died. And so far, the police say, no sign of foul play. There were some prescription drugs found, but no illegal drugs or illicit drugs. And this guy was part of the culture and one of the most successful sitcom actors of all time, and one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, Friends. And apparently, he had his personal assistant go out to run some errands. The assistant came back after a couple hours and found this guy dead in the jacuzzi in the backyard of the pool. A lot of people were tweeting and writing on social media. This is not a conspiracy theory. People are suddenly dying. People are having heart attacks. And they pointed out that Matthew Perry had tweeted out like a year ago, could I be any more vaccinated? Get your shot and then get your shirt. Shop the entire collection. And it was a collection of t -shirts bragging about getting vaccinated. And people were tweeting out things like, do you believe Matthew Perry died from heart issues in his jacuzzi that were caused by him getting so many COVID vaccines? Again, he once promoted a t -shirt that said, could I be any more vaccinated? Well, you know, I know we don't want to open up that whole can of worms again. On the other hand, did you see the story about the new analysis by the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, said that there may be an increase in the risk of stroke when you get a COVID shot on the same day as when you get certain flu vaccines. A new analysis found the link was clearest in adults over 85. It applied to the Pfizer and Moderna COVID booster vaccines. The FDA said the risk might stem from the flu vaccine alone and be completely unrelated to the COVID shots. I think it's fair to say, and I just want to start right here and say, whether we like it or not, most Americans, I think, and I want you to correct me if you think I've got this wrong, most Americans have a deep distrust over just about any vaccine. There was a horrific incidence of violence this week in New York City. It erupted after an argument between neighbors of a New York City apartment building. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. Maybe you've seen the ghastly video of a neighbor in an apartment building who executed a father and his stepson over a dispute regarding noise. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. It's awful. I don't want to play it. I mean, this guy came with a gun ready to confront this family. There had apparently been a history of arguing between these two tenants of the apartment building, I think it was in Brooklyn, and the family comes out to confront the guy. He's wearing a jacket. He's dressed all in black. And the closed circuit surveillance cameras are just crystal clear. One thing about this closed circuit TVs now, the video quality is as good as anything you see on a TV network. You can get these ring cameras and everything, and they're a real good deterrent, I think, for criminals, because they work well. I've got a whole set of them at a property that I own, and you can see everything. It records automatically. If there's movement, you can set all kinds of settings. Anyway, they had a closed circuit camera in the hallway of this apartment building. This guy's waiting. He's pacing. They're arguing. The dad comes out, and he's very threatening. He's apparently a bodybuilder. The father was this big, hulking, you know, muscular, tall guy. And he storms out with a pair of scissors in his hand, and they're arguing about the noise. And according to news reports, you know what the noise was? The family that the other guy was objecting to, they lived above this guy, and they didn't have carpeting on the floor. So whenever they walked, they were walking on wood floors, and it made a lot of noise, and it just aggravated the guy down below. So the guy down below shows up. He's in the hallway. He's got a jacket on. They're arguing. The family's arguing. The big, you know, bodybuilder is towering over the guy with a pair of scissors. Well, the shorter guy that came up to complain, he pulls out a gun, a handgun. The father immediately retreats. Doesn't matter. This guy starts blasting away. He shoots the dad multiple times. It's all caught on camera. The son, the stepson, tries to get away. He executes the stepson, pumps him full of bullets, and then he goes over to the dad, who's trying to get up. He's fallen by the door and puts a couple more bullets in his head for good measure. I mean, it was a stone cold execution. And there was a big debate on social media about whether or not it was self -defense or not. Well, of course it wasn't self -defense. He executed them. He's arguing with them about noise in an apartment. Now a family is shattered. And the breaking news, the reason I'm telling you this whole story is there is some news. They got the guy. Police shot him at a traffic stop moments ago in Brooklyn. The 47 -year -old suspect, Jason Pass, was in a car when police got a hit on his license plate. They performed a traffic stop, at which point the situation took a violent turn. He charged at the cops with a knife. They shot him. He's been rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. So everybody's lives are... And there's a moral to the story here. And the reason I think it's important to talk about it is more and more people are arming themselves. It's inevitable. Look at the world around us. Listen, I'm starting up the process again here in Florida. Years ago, I got a concealed carry permit course that I took in South Carolina. But you know, it's been years. I was living in New York City. You sure aren't supposed to have a gun in New York. And now that I'm a Florida resident, I'm going to be armed. You were there with Mike Lindell through thick and through thin. You appreciate that Mike has been targeted and they've tried to stop him.

A highlight from SBF Trial, Day 17: Closing Arguments Ask: Villain or Good-Faith Actor?

It's The Cryptopians—idealism, greed, lies, and the making of the first big cryptocurrency craze. Thanks for reading. Hi everyone, thanks for tuning in to Day 17 of the Unchained Recap of the ASBF trial. On Wednesday, the government and the defense made starkly contrasting closing arguments in the criminal trial of former FTX CEO Sam Pinkman -Fried. Assistant U .S. attorney Nicholas Rose used new evidence, timelines, and the defendant's own words to paint a picture of SPF as a liar who stole and whose secretive actions belied his public statements, which Rose asserted was an indication of his guilt. Defense attorney Mark Cohen focused more attention on discrediting the government and the cooperating witnesses, while emphasizing the high bar that must be reached for the jury to convict on each of the charges. In a decidedly less frenzied courthouse compared to the crowds that had appeared for Bankman -Fried's when it was dark. Deliberations are set to begin Thursday. Rose, who was tall and has a robust voice and a slightly patrician way of speaking, began his closing statement using clear, simple language. As he walked back and forth in front of the lectern, he faced the jury directly, with his voice ringing out loud and clear. At times he was impassioned, almost yelling some of his points in indignation. His main theme was lies, and SPF's knowledge that he was doing something he should not have been doing. A few minutes in, Rose said, quote, This is not about complicated issues of cryptocurrency. It's not about hedging. It's not about technical jargon. It's about deception. It's about lies. It's about stealing. It's about greed. After reminding the jury that the main question is whether SPF knew it was wrong to take the money, he said, quote, And the answer is clear. He took the money. He knew it was wrong. He did it anyway. Because he thought he was smarter and better and that he could figure his way out of it. He could walk his way out of it and talk his way out of it. And today, with you, that ends. He asked the jury to apply their common sense and look at the evidence. Rose then called out the contrast between SPF's direct testimony on Friday, which he called, quote, And showed Bankman Fried to have a perfect memory of his college years, Jane Street, and the early years of Alameda. At that time, Rose said, he was also able to explain 50 finance and technical terms. Then Rose noted that Bankman Fried became a different person under questioning by prosecutor Danielle Sassoon. Rose said, quote, But it happened over 140 times during his cross -examination. He lied about big things and he lied about little things. He asked for terms to be defined that he used freely on direct examination a day earlier. He approached every question like up was down and down was up. Rose then said that in order to believe SPF, a juror would have to ignore all the other evidence, such as the testimony of all his deputies, the flow of money, and the documents and secret spreadsheets. Quote, You would have to believe that the defendant, who graduated from MIT, who ran two billion dollar companies, and who was testifying before Congress, was actually clueless and he had no idea what was happening at his own company and he had no idea what he was doing wrong.
A highlight from More Americans are Protecting Themselves
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. The father has eye gouged out before they were executed and then their executioner sat down and had a meal and no nation could tolerate that. Look this is a matter of good versus evil. I think this is kind of a new sickness that we're seeing in these college campuses. They're finding out that you know what actually the guy with the mean tweets was not that bad if it means we don't have a war in Ukraine, we don't have a war in the Middle East, we don't have you know an open border. Now from the ReliefFactor .com studios here's Mike Gallagher. There's some breaking news out of New York City. Maybe you've seen the ghastly video of a neighbor in an apartment building who executed a father and his stepson over a dispute regarding noise. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. It's awful. I don't want to play it. If you're watching on Salem News Channel maybe we can send the video out if you like that you know or appreciate that kind of gore. It's awful. I mean this guy came with a gun ready to confront this family. There had apparently been a history of arguing between these two tenants of the apartment building. I think it was in Brooklyn and the family comes out to confront the guy. He's wearing a jacket. He's dressed all in black and the closed circuit surveillance cameras are just crystal clear. One thing about this closed circuit TVs now, I mean the video quality is as good as anything you see on a TV network. I mean you can get these ring cameras and everything and they're a real good deterrent I think for criminals because they work well. I've got a whole set of them at a property that I own and you can see everything and it automatically. records If there's movement, you can set all kinds of settings.

He's arguing with them about noise in an apartment. Now the family is shattered and the breaking news, the reason I'm telling you this whole story is there is some news. They got the guy. Police shot him at a traffic stop moments ago in Brooklyn. The 47 -year -old suspect, Jason Pass, was in a car when police got a hit on his license plate. They performed a traffic stop at which point the situation took a violent turn. He charged at the cops with a knife. They shot him. He's been rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. So everybody's lives are – and there's a moral to the story here. The reason I think it's important to talk about it is more and more people are arming themselves. It's inevitable. Look at the world around us. Listen, I'm starting up the process again here in Florida. Years ago, I got a concealed carry permit course that I took in South Carolina. But you know, it's been years. I was living in New York City. You sure aren't supposed to have a gun in New York. And now that I'm a Florida resident, I'm going to be armed and I'm going to take a course and I'm going to be prepared for whatever might come my way. But if you're going to be a gun owner, you got to be responsible. That doesn't mean it's the – you know, you should be in a shootout at the OK Corral. That doesn't mean you should sit around and execute a father and his son because you're arguing about noise in the apartment building. And if you execute somebody, you're going to go to jail forever as you should, I hope. I don't know. But that's the concern and I'm not oblivious to the fears that people who don't like guns and don't approve of the Second Amendment always have. They figure as people get armed and more and more people start carrying, there will be more incidents like this. And you know what I have to say to that? It's an awful thing to have to admit, but it's true. There will be irresponsible, negligent morons who are going to misuse their firearm. And you know, that unfortunately is part of the price we pay for a polite armed society. There are going to be people who abuse it. This guy clearly abused it. This guy needs to be – if he survives, the police shooting should spend the rest of his life in jail. It was a cold -blooded killing and he slaughtered two people over a stupid dispute. But again, ultimately, that's not going to prevent people, I don't think. Maybe it will. Maybe you will think twice about arming yourself. More and more Americans are purchasing firearms. More and more people are realizing if you don't protect yourself, no one will. More and more people are coming to the realization that they need to protect themselves. So make sure you're protected. Make sure you're armed if you so choose. And if you choose not to be armed, I don't mean to be a jerk here, but good luck. If you choose not to protect yourself, you're pretty much on your own. And with witnessing what we're witnessing in the country and all the evil we are seeing, how is it a leap to say after what they've been doing to the Jews that us Christians are next? And I would argue we already are. We're already on the chopping block. Already they're mocking the new house speaker, Mike Johnson, because he's apparently very religious. And Lord knows, nothing infuriates the left more than a religious Christian. And they hate Mike. They're going after Mike Johnson, the new speaker. Oh, he's going to cause the Republicans to lose the house. Everybody's going to turn against Republicans now because they have a Bible -believing Christian as the speaker of the house. I mean, that's absolutely what they're saying right now. So the same hatred that we're seeing exhibited towards Jews is going to be directed toward Christians. A lot of text messages coming in, including this one from Philly, situations like the one you just described in Brooklyn make me want to be armed even more. It's not a deterrent at all. I mean, watching people—I told you the story of that punk in Houston who was going up from behind people and slugging them as hard as he could. It makes me want to be armed more. And I'm not alone. I guarantee you, more and more Americans are saying, time for me to be protected. Welcome aboard. It's the first of November. We're in the Relief Factor studios. I hope you jump aboard and join us. The PhD weight loss and nutrition phone number is 800 -655 -MIKE. We have an open line for you. Are you considering getting armed when you look at the world around you? Has the Hamas terrorist attack against the Jews and all the anti -Semitism we're seeing in America caused you to consider becoming armed and making sure you're carrying a weapon, making sure you have a firearm or more, firearms in your home? Or do you think that's a mistake? Do you think it'll turn into a bloodbath? Unnecessary. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE, 16 past the hour. I hope you join me. Again, one open phone line. Let's put your voice front and center. Join me on this caller -driven Mike Gallagher Show, 800 -655 -6453.
A highlight from Elizabeth Warren Wants to Criminalize Bitcoin Self-Custody | EP 858
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin. It's going up for everyone. Bitcoin! You're against Bitcoin, you're against freedom. Yo, welcome to another episode of Simply Bitcoin Live. We are your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution. We cover breaking news, culture, and matic warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state. And today is one of those episodes where we're going to be talking about the separation of money and state. One of my favorite features about Bitcoin is that eventually it exposes all incentives. And what we've seen over the last two weeks is Elizabeth Warren, her allies in the media, and her allies in government take advantage of the tragedy happening in Palestine and Israel to try to circumvent the legislative process to enact these crazy regulations that attack would essentially Bitcoin, make it very difficult for Bitcoiners, particularly in the US, even though this movement is happening worldwide. Now what happened is that this ended up backfiring, and the reason that ended up backfiring is because social media has allowed the common man, the everyday individual, the rise of media. And that's exactly what happened. The Wall Street Journal conceded on Friday, they retracted their statements, they offered a correction, and the Wall Street Journal article was the pillar of Elizabeth Warren's letter to the White House, which prompted the White House to tap on the Treasury, specifically the FinCEN, to enact these crazy regulations. Now it was exposed, the Wall Street Journal article got it completely wrong, therefore Elizabeth Warren, she was using false information or misrepresenting information in order to achieve a certain political end goal. She was caught in 4K, we said this yesterday. She did not retract her statement, she doubled down. She said, okay, maybe that that article was incorrect, but there's other sources, but she only used one source in that article for the White House, right? Now what happened though, and this is beautiful, and this goes back to my initial statement, is that Bitcoin exposes all incentives. And what we've seen is essentially Elizabeth Warren, first, you know, she lied, first she gets caught lying, then she doubles down, and then she finally says the quiet part out loud. And what is that quiet part? Basically she's making the case to criminalize self -custody. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is where we are in the movie, this is not rhetoric, this is not me exaggerating it in the title, this is exactly what she said in the video. And then that really calls into question the FinCEN proposal and the bipartisan bill that Elizabeth Warren has introduced in the Senate, even though it has a very low likelihood of being passed. But this is what she really wanted. And this coincides with the exact same words coming out of the head of the European Central Bank, who was previously the head of the IMF, who I might add is also a convicted felon, she calls Bitcoin an escape valve. So really what you're seeing from Elizabeth Warren is fear. What you're seeing from Christine Lagarde is fear, because they know that their money cannot compete on the free market with a better money, with a superior money. And why is Bitcoin superior to state -issued currency? Because it does two things that they cannot help themselves but to do. It offers censorship resistance, and it's deflationary. Governments are always going to want to do those two things, they're always going to want to censor, and they're always going to want to inflate, because without inflating they cannot pay for the endless wars, they cannot pay for the things that we cannot afford on income tax alone. The money printing is how the United States continuously spends over a trillion dollars, deficit spending, year after year, even though the government, you know, you hear the rhetoric from the politicians, we must tax the billionaires, we must tax more, tax, tax, tax, tax the income tax. But what they fail to tell you is that the US government collects more tax revenue year after year. But why is it that they want to collect more tax? It's because of the spending. This is why you have to separate money from state. It's a question of aligning incentives. As long as politicians don't have to go to the populace to raise money for any ideas that they have proposed, and instead they can get they can fund it through the hidden tax of inflation, the incentives of society will never be aligned. And I truly believe that's why we're seeing the moral degradation of society. That's why you're seeing the cultural degradation. That's where you're seeing the infrastructure degradation. All these things, because the people in charge are not incentivized to do good by their constituents. They're incentivized to get as close as humanly possible to the money spigot. And they're willing to say anything and everything. But blame themselves for the circumstance, for the situation they themselves have caused for spending money they didn't have and debasing people's money in order not only to enrich themselves, but to pay for the spending that people can't ignore. I mean, for the spending that they cannot afford. But here it is, once again, Honey Badger don't care. And it forced Elizabeth Warren, whether she realized or not, to finally, finally say the quiet part out loud. Self -custody is a crime. If you choose to put your money in a way of which I can't easily seize it, I can't easily confiscate it, I can't easily censor it, that's a problem. And that is a problem for politicians that have been using that privilege, abusing that privilege to not only pay for themselves, I mean, enrich themselves, but also pay for things that we can't afford as a country. And of course, we're speaking from an American sense of view, because we live in the United States. But this applies to all countries around the world. Look at what's happening in Venezuela. Look at what's happening in Argentina. Look at what's happening in Turkey. So this is crazy, and this is a very historical moment. And I'm telling you, in a couple of years, I think they're going to get so desperate that they're going to just keep saying this, that the whole thing of self -custody is dangerous. And if you think about that, like if you think about it from like a foundational level, like that is so absurd, because we can't debase your money, because we can't easily confiscate your money. That is dangerous. And you have to look at the historical precedent here. Back in the 30s or in the Great Depression, FDR implemented the famous 6 -1 -0 -2 order, where he made it illegal for American citizens to own gold. So countries, nation states, have had a history of when they default on their debt, they have a history of confiscating their populace's wealth in order to keep it going. But with Bitcoin, this is why Bitcoin is so unique. This is why Bitcoin changes everything. For the first time in human history, you can store vast sums of wealth, millions, billions, trillions of dollars, by memorizing a 12 to 24 word seed phrase. And that makes it incredibly difficult for government to confiscate on a mass scale, whatever their justification is. And it has them scared shitakulous for the sake of not cursing in the first couple of minutes. So this is crazy. This means we're winning. Let's keep up the pressure. Let's color within the lines. And most importantly, our most important weapon in this narrative trench warfare is just to expose their lies and misrepresentations so that the world can see them for who they are. Anyways, it's going to be a great show. I want to bring up my legendary co -host, always optimistic, giant smile on his face today. How are you doing, Opti? I am doing wonderful. In the face of this very, very sober monologue, I was just thinking, of course, I think my reigning role here on the show is to make light of everything in regards to it getting very serious. And I have officially changed my view on my favorite politician. It is no longer Brad Sherman. It is now officially Elizabeth Warren. Absolutely love to see the politicians, the powers that be, the unproductive class squirm like this. And we say it all the time, Bitcoin exposes people's incentives. And you love when they say the quiet part out loud. And it's not just us like talking about it. It's them actually terrified of what is happening. You just love to see it. You know, it's going to go into what we're going to talk about on the culture. This idea that we're winning so hard, guys, it's absolutely incredible. In the face of all the fear, just remember that Bitcoin just stays winning as long as you are taking Bitcoin into self custody, the game is going along exactly as planned. And you just love to see it. This was inevitable. And it's actually happening a lot quicker than I thought it would, Nico. I'm really surprised that this is where we are. Of course, Elizabeth Warren seems to be the canary in the coal mine for the powers that be. So we'll see who else starts to come out as our also third and fourth and fifth, second or wait, six favorite politicians. You love when politicians get scared. I'd love to see it. Love to see it. Anyways, guys, so in these types of moments in history, right, it has never been a more important time to take self custody. The sponsors that support the show, make this show possible. We're very, very picky who we choose. Right. So, yes, of course. And this all kind of goes to Bitcoin's aligned incentives. We choose to partner up with Bitcoin companies that make it easy for you to stack SATs, make it easy for you to withdraw those stacks from that said exchange. We give you exposure to the best Bitcoin hardware wallets in the industry so that you can take self custody. And we also emphasize the fact of, you know, not your properly securing your Bitcoin wallet backup seed words. Don't store it on paper, store it on metal. And then not to mention the fact that we also bring up, you know, if you got it, you guys want to take the next level, run your own node. If you don't run your own node, you're trusting someone else's. And that's why we love start nine. We have all of that in the video description. So when we're talking about self custody, you guys are covered on all fronts of Bitcoin products to use it to really achieve your sovereignty as an individual. Anyways, everybody, let's jump into the show. I think this is a historical episode. I can't believe this is where we are in the movie. So many things have happened this year. Holy cow. And I suspect my intuition is telling me it will continue to accelerate as we're living through this pivotal moment in human history. We are living through the disintermediation of information and we're living through the disintermediation of money. And it's happening all at the same time. Strap yourself in. It's going to be a hell of a ride. And of course, simply Bitcoin will be here to cover it for you guys. All right, everybody, let's start the show. Let's do it.
A highlight from SBF Trial, Day 16: In Final Cross Examination, SBF Gets Caught Again by His Own Words
"The paperback version of my book, The Cryptopians, is out now. It contains a new afterword covering recent developments in crypto since 2021, when the book went to press. Plus, this version names the person I suspect to be the DAO hacker. In case you never got to read the book in hardback, or, like me, you like to read paperbacks or bedtime reading, order today. Check our newsletter and the show notes for the link, or just search for it at any of your favorite bookstores. It's The Cryptopians — idealism, greed, lies, and the making of the first big cryptocurrency craze. Thanks for reading. Hey everyone, Laura here. Welcome to the Unchained Recap for Day 16 of the SBF trial. Thanks for tuning in. The government wrapped up its cross -examination of former FTX CEO Sam Bankman -Fried on Tuesday with Assistant U .S. Attorney Danielle Sassoon shooting more rapid -fire strings of questions at SBF that underscored the incredulity of some of his claims, plus a mic -dropping set of final questions that seemed to indicate the defendant's knowledge of his guilt. In her cross -examination, Sassoon interrogated the defendant's relationship with Bahamian officials, his efforts to determine who would have spent the $8 billion of missing FTX customer funds, his concern — or lack thereof — about the fiat ad account, and his infamous Nov. 7 tweets telling customers' assets were fine, which he deleted the next day. The defense followed with a redirect examination aimed at recreating reasonable doubt that the 31 -year -old former FTX and Alameda research CEO did not defraud or conspire to defraud customers, investors, and lenders. It used the time to give Bankman -Fried space to further expound on his answers in the cross -examination Monday. The prosecution started its cross -examination by asking Bankman -Fried about whether he cultivated a close relationship with Bahamian officials. For instance, she asked whether SBF recalled proposing to the Bahamas Prime Minister Philip Davis that FTX pay off the country's national debt of roughly $11 .6 billion. SBF said, quote, I don't remember that. Sassoon also asked SBF about having a conversation with Davis' son about a job in NFTs and giving Davis and his wife, quote, floor -side seats at FTX Arena to see the Miami Heat. She brought up a screenshot of a Signal group chat named Project Chinchilla Chatter, where SBF had joked that former co -CEO of FTX Digital Markets Ryan Salem was a member of the Bahamas government. She also mentioned a private dinner and played a video from the Crypto Bahamas conference. Davis was in attendance at both, alongside guests like former US President Bill Clinton, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, singer Katy Perry, and actor Orlando Bloom. Then she pulled up an email from November 9, 2022, between the defendant and Bahamas Attorney General Ryan Pinder. By that point, FTX had halted withdrawals. And yet, in the email, Bankman Fried wrote to Pinder, quote, we have segregated funds for all Bahamian customers on FTX, and we would be more than happy to open up withdrawals for all Bahamian customers on FTX. Bankman Fried admitted that FTX was reopened temporarily solely for Bahamian customers. When Sassoon asked him about what she called Alameda spending the FTX customer fiat deposits from the North Dimension bank account owned by Alameda, Bankman Fried said he did not learn until September -October 2022 that FTX customer fiat deposits in the North Dimension account had been, quote, used. Under the quick questioning from Sassoon, SBF admitted that it was, quote, permissible for Alameda to borrow and use fiat deposits, and yet that he didn't tell his employees not to spend FTX customer deposits, didn't set up measures to segregate FTX customer funds from Alameda's funds, didn't tell Alameda employees to keep FTX customer money in the North Dimension bank account for the benefit of FTX customers, and yet made representations before Congress about the safeguarding of FTX customer assets. Bankman Fried claimed that in September -October 2022, he learned that $8 billion of customer money had been spent. When Sassoon asked him what information he learned about who had spent it, he said, quote, I don't remember knowing anything about particular employees. She rejoined her, so it's your testimony that while you were CEO of Alameda, by the way, I think she meant FTX, some unknown people spent $8 billion without your knowledge? Then she asked him, you didn't call in your deputies and employees and say who spent $8 billion? He said he asked Ellison how it happened. Sassoon asked whether he had fired anyone for spending $8 billion of FTX customer deposits. He responded, no. She responded, and so, just to be clear, it's your testimony that while you were Alameda CEO, your employees were spending millions and then billions of customer funds without you knowing it? SPF denied that it was his testimony. During the defense's redirect, Cohen asked Bankman Fried why he had denied to Sassoon that he had spent the $8 billion. SPF first stated how he didn't think, quote, there was a clear, simple pointer decision where a particular person or group decided to spend the money. Moreover, he, quote, wasn't particularly interested in trying to dole out blame for it. That wasn't my priority. It was generally something I deprioritized as later, and I tried to focus as much as I could on what stuff has happened, what's the best thing we can do going forward. Similar to the earlier line of questioning about whether or not Bankman Fried had tried to identify who had spent $8 billion of FTX customer money, Sassoon showed multiple times that SPF's actions don't quite match his story. For instance, he described simply overhearing about the fiat ad account from FTX co -founder Gary Wang and director of engineering Nishad Singh just after Ellison had feared that Alameda might have gone bankrupt. Earlier, he had testified that at this point, SPF learned that Alameda's liabilities to FTX were $10 billion, not $2 billion as he thought. In this section of the transcript, Danielle Sassoon says, and you didn't say, hey guys, what's this fiat ad account that had an $8 billion bug that almost made Alameda bankrupt? SPF replied, when I heard it, I didn't have all that context, but I did ask what the fiat ad account that was an account was referring to. Question, and you were told, weren't you, that it had to do with Alameda's liabilities to FTX for customer funds, right? Answer, not at that time. I was told they were busy and I should stop asking questions because it was distracting. Sassoon asked, so it's your testimony that your supervisees told you to stop asking questions? In the overflow room, people laughed. Sassoon aimed at Bankman -Fried's credibility, highlighting tweets that, from the government's point of view, demonstrated how the defendant misrepresented FTX's financial status to customers. She focused on several tweets SPF posted on November 7, which were deleted the day after, once it became known that FTX did not have the full amount of assets to process customer withdrawals. Bankman -Fried said that before FTX went bankrupt, but as customers were rapidly withdrawing from the exchange, he was writing tweets because, among other things, he wanted to reassure customers and have them leave their funds on the exchange instead of withdrawing. Referring to the statement in the November 7th tweet, quote, FTX has enough to cover all client holdings, Sassoon said, quote, your tweet doesn't say that Alameda has enough to cover all client holdings, does it? He agreed. She reminded him that in previous testimony, he said that when he wrote this tweet, he was referring to the fact that Alameda had more in assets than liabilities. He said he wouldn't put it that way, but then she asked, quote, on November 7th, FTX itself, if you disregarded Alameda's assets, did not have enough to cover all client holdings. He disagreed. Bankman -Fried admitted that even if he and Alameda had liquidated its assets, for example, by either selling their investments in Robinhood and recalling their money from Modulo, the amount was still less than needed to cover FTX's obligation to its customers. And Sassoon asked him if these assets were investments. He said yes. Then she said, quote, you tweeted, didn't you, that we don't invest client assets? He said, that is correct. For the final line of questioning for the cross -examination, Sassoon created a mic drop moment that indicates SPF knew who the four co -conspirators were even before all four were publicly known. Sassoon began by asking, quote, Mr. Bankman -Fried, you would agree that you, Caroline, Gary, and Nashan were the ones involved in the decisions to spend FTX customer money by Alameda, right? He said no. Then she asked if he had learned in December that Caroline and Gary had pleaded guilty. He said yes. When asked if he knew that they were both cooperating with the government, he said he wasn't sure, but, quote, I may have. Then she pointed out that in January, he would have learned that Singh had also pleaded guilty. He said January or February. She asked if, in December, when he'd heard about the guilty pleas of Caroline and Gary, he'd been surprised not to learn anything about Nashad. He agreed. She responded, because Nashad was the fourth person involved in your scheme to use FTX customer money, right? He said nope. She pulled up the same Google doc written on December 25, 2022, in which, in Monday's testimony, Sassoon had shown he'd been wondering if he could get the Robin Hood shares transferred to himself. However, this time, she focused on a different section of the document, labeled Nashad. Question, do you see it says Nashad? Answer, I do. Question, and A says, quote, lots of the complaints, et cetera, filed at this point make claims like the three co -conspirators in a way that doesn't really seem to leave much room for them adding on a fourth. They don't seem to be keeping a seat warm for him as a defendant. Do you see that? Answer, I do see that. Question, B, also there's no plea deal, no nothing, yet. Do you see that? Answer, I do see that. And quote, C, what does this mean? One, he got immunity. Two, they aren't bothering with him. Three, they'll just have a separate parallel set of complaints for him once they get past whatever the blocker is. Four, something else? You wrote that Mr. Bankman -Friede, correct? Answer, I think so. After the defense's redirect, the judge and both teams of lawyers had a charging conference to revise the jury's instructions. On Wednesday, the defense and prosecution will give their closing statements, then the jury deliberates. The end is in sight. We'll see you next time.

Sorry it's a little bit late. I had to head to the courthouse at an ungodly hour in order to try to make it into the courtroom on Monday. And while I succeeded, it made me unable to work on the video Monday evening. Sam Bankman -Fried's attorneys ended their direct examination of their client Monday morning, allowing the government to cross -examine SPF for four hours. During that time, Assistant U .S. Attorney Daniel Sassoon relentlessly highlighted contradictions in his testimony against previous statements, severely undermining his credibility and potentially ending Bankman -Fried's chance to win over a single jury member. The prosecution's intense and relentlessly devastating interrogation of the defendant repeatedly SPF's used own words against him. When he would evade her questions or not admit to an act or a statement he had made, she would pull up audio, video, and print interviews of Bankman -Fried, testimony he sent to Congress, memos to himself, internal Alameda or FTX documents, spreadsheets, etc., in which his own words or actions contradicted his testimony. At one point, she raised the fact that the defendant had months to look over the government's evidence. The inference was that he had chosen to testify under oath in contradiction of the evidence anyway. Sassoon's cross -examination was a seemingly endless presentation of direct evidence of SPF's previous statements contradicting his current or recent testimony. She began her questioning by saying, Mr. Bankman -Fried, you testified a bunch about Alameda. Up through November of 2022, you owned 90 % of Alameda, correct? With her voice ringing out clearly in the courtroom. The energy of her statement shouted confidence. Early on, Sassoon questioned whether Bankman -Fried recalled saying in 2022 that he was, quote, walled off from Alameda's trading. He responded, quote, I would say I was not involved for the most part. I would not say I was not involved at all in any way. Pulling up a signal chat composed of Bankman -Fried, Caroline Ellison, Sam Tribuco, and Ben Shia, Sassoon pointed out that, in the messages, Bankman -Fried expressed his desire to buy MAPS tokens to decrease Alameda's time -weighted average price of the asset. Although he did not agree that that was trading, Sassoon also brought up SPF's instructions to Ellison to properly hedge, which he then admitted is a form of trading. Sassoon raised the many media interviews he conducted after FTX's bankruptcy. She got him to agree that, as CEO, it was important for him to be truthful and precise when talking about FTX. Then Sassoon played a clip from a Twitter Spaces in which he said, quote, I was intentionally not getting involved in Alameda because I was concerned about a conflict of interest. She read aloud a part of a Financial Times article about Alameda that said, quote, the FTX founder insisted that he had walled himself off from trading and risk management at the Alameda research trading firm. Another contradiction she pointed out was in his public support for regulation and customer protection versus his private statements on it. She asked him, quote, Do you recall, yes or no, telling your followers on Twitter in October that your support for regulation was contingent upon protecting customers? Though he claimed he did not recall, she showed a tweet from him saying exactly that. Then she showed him contradicting himself by drawing up a screenshot of his Twitter DMs with journalist Kelsey Piper, which were published in Vox. Sassoon read aloud Piper's question, quote, You said a lot of stuff about how you wanted to make regulations, just good ones. Was that pretty much just PR, too? And then Sassoon asked SVF to read aloud the last two texts in his response. He said in front of the jury, quote, Yeah, just PR. Fuck regulators. Sassoon's next question was, quote, You called members of crypto Twitter, which included your own followers and customers, dumb motherfuckers, right? He admitted calling, quote, a specific subset of them in private conversation that way. One recurring theme was Bankman Fried's inability to answer basic questions about FTX. He responded, I may have or something similar to the following questions by Sassoon. You said publicly while you were CEO of FTX that FTX had reformed how crypto exchanges worked, didn't you? You recall saying that you had built a responsible system. Do you recall describing FTX as a thoughtful exchange? Do you recall describing FTX as having a healthy take on risk management? Do you recall saying that you were providing clarity and transparency to the crypto system? Isn't it true you also told customers that there always has been regulation in crypto and we always have had duties? Over and over again in public forums, you described the FTX platform as safe, correct? In October, you also told the public that customers mattered more than anything, didn't you? You even tweeted that lying to customers breaks sacred rules of conduct everyone knows to follow, didn't you? In your testimony, you described how the risk and clearing model for FTX International's platform worked, right? Since he so often claimed to not remember what he had said, Sassoon often showed evidence of his prior statements. For example, she asked SPF to read his tweet from August 9, 2021, which read, quote, and as always, our users' funds and safety comes first. Sassoon also introduced Bankman Fried's testimony in front of Congress in a document titled FTX's Key Principles to emphasize how SPF would lay out how FTX offered protections for investors in a multitude of ways, including the maintenance of adequate liquidity as a means to ensure that customers could withdraw their funds upon request. At point, Spankman Fried led his annoyance with Sassoon's show. For instance, when she asked him to read a phrase on a document, after he read a different part of the text, she redirected him back to the phrase she wanted him to read. Instead of reading it directly, he said, quote, the first word is preventing. The second word is clawbacks. The prosecution showed that SPF's testimony around the government's core allegations was also inconsistent with his prior statements and actions. When the prosecution brought up the Google spreadsheet created by Ellison that had eight tabs, seven containing doctored versions of Alameda's balance sheets, Sassoon's and Bankman Fried's back and forth on whether he remembered the spreadsheet took up four pages of the transcript. He said, quote, I don't recall it being in this particular document. I remember receiving a document that at least looks like one of the tabs on it. I don't remember exactly what it said, etc. Sassoon finally showed the Google metadata, which revealed that he looked at the document on June 19th, 2022. She also pointed out that by the time of his testimony, he knew that the government had gotten metadata from Google about this document. And though she didn't say it, the implication was that he'd chosen to say something under oath that directly contradicted the evidence anyway. Sassoon brought up Bankman Fried's testimony from Thursday's evidentiary hearing, in on what they could do with those funds, that they could buy muffins if they wanted. Then she pointed out that there were rules for when customers could withdraw borrowed funds. They could do so if they had spot margin enabled, and that if they withdrew money, they needed the borrow to be collateralized by assets on the exchange. Although he said he wasn't sure about the rules about collateral on the exchange, she pointed out that that was an essential feature of the liquidation engine, since it could not liquidate assets it could not access. And that, in fact, he had given this testimony to Congress under oath. Under her questioning, he admitted that there was only one customer besides Alameda that was allowed to withdraw money from FTX by pledging outside investments as collateral. That was a firm, Cryptolotus, that he said had a junior employee with whom he was friendly. However, Cryptolotus was allowed to withdraw only $100 million. Later on, she drew up an FTX line of credit agreement. She began reading one of the terms of the agreement, which began, quote, Then, she asked SPF to read one of the points below it to finish the sentence. He said, quote, The prosecution also asked Bankman Fried about his more than $600 million equity stake in the trading app Robinhood. Bankman Fried had purchased a large number of Robinhood shares via Alameda Research, which Notre Dame professor Peter Easton noted was primarily funded by FTX customer money. Sassoon and Bankman Fried had a back and forth to establish whether he was the sole member of Alameda's board of directors, highlighting the defendant's tendency to avoid responding in direct answers. The tension evolved to the point where Judge Kaplan jumped in to clarify, asking Bankman Fried, Sassoon asserted that after FTX declared bankruptcy, SPF filed an affidavit to lay claim to the Robinhood shares. Then she asked him whether FTX customers could access their deposits at the time SPF filed the affidavit. His lawyer, Mark Cohen, objected, and the lawyers went to the sidebar where Sassoon defended her use of the affidavit by saying, Judge Kaplan overruled the objection. Because of the competing versions of SPF's and Sun's testimonies, Allen may provide outside corroboration to one of them.

I've been listening for about a year. Thank you. Thank you. We appreciate it. Cheryl, What are your Dodge today? Well, I Googled The top 10 hits and rap and hip hop. About a year ago and listen to what? That demographic listens to you, and we're talking about our young juveniles. It was alarming to me What I heard. It's not just offensive but talking about and glorifying doing harm to other people. Violence. If someone who approached me and started saying those words to me, I would call the cops. I'm just pointing out that what we see that these kids are listening to is playing out on the street, and the same thing is true with the video games. I just think that what we're feeding our kids showing up on the streets. Do you have some thoughts on how to change course. I don't. I think it's a sad comment. Ation all parenting. I think I'm parenting, a society as a whole that we have allowed, um things to get so far away from the structure of a family, the structure of having God in your life. There's so many things that we have gotten away from, and that includes the hard work or or punishment. If you've done something wrong, there's a consequence for that. We've gotten away from that. There's so many things that we have gotten away from in that this is this is the result of that. I think what you say is true. And to quote our president Biden Follow the science. Just look at the statistics from the sixties forward. And you can see cause and effect. Cheryl. Thank you have a great Monday, 51283605 90, a federal judge in Houston throughout the lawsuit that had been filed by some of the employees at Houston Methodist Hospital, who did not want to get the Covid 19 vaccine. These are people who said they had concerns about the vaccine, the judge wrote in his dismissal. The employees are not participants in a human trial. Methodist Hospital is trying to do their business of saving lives without giving patients covid 19 When they're being treated, it's a choice made to keep the staff patients and their families safer. One of the employees who did not want to get the vaccine is a nurse Jennifer Bridges, and she said she was prepared to lose her job over this and the fight is not over. We kind of figured this would happen. But that's okay because we're totally appealing it and we will take it all the way to the Supreme Court. And once we plead our case, everybody will see a completely different side and then hopefully we can get some laws created and protect people across the nation. So they don't have to go through. This. People have fled here from other countries that escape this sort of thing, And now they're dealing with it here. So the most absurd thing we've ever encountered. Um, yeah, yeah. I'm glad that they're going to appeal it and go further because again to me, this is still something I get the hospital stance like we're trying to keep everyone safe. Um But this this woman that we just heard from nurse Jennifer Bridges she had Covid, she says she has the antibodies. So then it becomes a debate. Why should she have to tank take the vaccine if she's got the natural antibodies for it, And why should that cost cost her? Her job? I don't know if if that's even thought about or considered in this or if it's strictly black and white. The hospital is doing this because they've got to protect their patients, and this is a way to do it. And there's End of story. Dr. Marc Boom is the CEO of the Houston Methodist Hospital chain They have about 26,000 employees. He was interviewed on MSNBC over the weekend. They did not ask him. What about the people who had covid 19 and recovered and have the antibodies? As is the case with this nurse? They didn't They didn't ask about that. It's a shame they didn't But he did say that he's heard from patients who want the staff to be vaccinated. I've heard that from countless patients. In fact, there was a letter to the editor today in the Houston Chronicle about that, and I've received many other communications patients are very commonly saying, I want to be in a health care situation where I know that I am safe because they recognize this is the right thing to do. Too bad They didn't ask him about that element that you brought up, Melinda. You've got some staff here who had it already and have the antibodies. He says over 99% of the staff have received the vaccine doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals. We have a sacred obligation to keep our patients safe, and that's what vaccines do. We've done this for a dozen years with the flu shot. We see the coronavirus is vaccine is even more important, and so we're very proud of our 25,000 employees who did comply with this and who did get vaccinated and follow policy. I question the one that he says. You know, these patients are asking. Are your staff vaccinated? Could you not just go? We will send you to the doctors that we know are and and And not make it this mandatory thing. That's the thing that I get is this is something that you're putting in your body. I think you should have a say in it. Um and For whatever your reason, maybe for not doing so there's also going to be part of the population. That doesn't care. I need treatment. Treat me, please. I don't care if you had the vaccine or not. I just want to be better feel better. Well, these these people will continue their legal fight. And they also have, uh, I think seven days now to go ahead and get at least one shot. And at the end of the seven days they will be fired their suspended right now and it sounded like, um the majority of them have just come to the terms without the still find somewhere else to work. And you have to wonder. What does that do? I mean, granted. You're talking about just under 200 employees. But what does that do to the hospital? Is that going to Hurt them in any way will they? Will they be understaffed in a certain portion of the hospital, or are they able to absorb that and go on without any interruptions? Yeah, that that has not been addressed in the reports. I've seen about their ability to carry on without them. We are seeing reports on President Biden meeting with the G seven leaders and they put out Statement they want China. To be investigated by the W. H O President Biden and the G seven said the world needs an independent, WH show led investigation on the origin of the coronavirus. Which is just a stalling tactic. In my view, uh and and it does no good to say, wh show you get in there and investigate. They've had their chances in there a puppet of China. These leaders even said your first study was highly deficient. Yes. Hey, let's give you another chance because we think you'll do a better job now because what More of us are calling for more of us are asking questions are curious. It doesn't matter what the W H O girls and does It's the China government that is not going to allow there to be any more information. Dan Bongino was on Fox this morning. And he was discussing the U. S. Scientists have been looking at the genetic code of the coronavirus, and they have pointed out something that's highly suspicious in that genetic code. This double C G code in the coronavirus in Covid 19. We have not found in nature anywhere. It doesn't mean it doesn't exist. We have not found it. But you know where we have found it. With lab researchers who insert that code and gain of function research to make these viruses super viruses that is in Covid 19. And you know what's really convenient.
