"Accusations of sexual harassment and bullying by a local middle school principal are true. That at least is the conclusion of a new Inspector General's report. We get details from WTOP's Kate Ryan. Montgomery The County Office of the Inspector General summed it up this way. Her investigation substantiated claims of violations of the school system's code of conduct and sexual harassment and bullying policies related to then Farquhar Middle School Principal Joel Bidelman. Inspector General Megan LaMarzi wrote in her report that allegations that Bidelman made repeated comments about the appearance about them and had a sexual relationship with a woman he supervised were supported by the first of two investigations by her office. In response, Montgomery County School Superintendent Monifa Knight wrote in a statement that she is quote, moving forward without delay to ensure that wrongdoing is held to full account. WTOP asked her office for what that would entail. Kate Ryan making anti -Semitic social media posts. In a letter to parents to Koma Park Principal, Aaron Martin says multiple parents reached out to her about a series of anti -Semitic posts online by teacher Angela Wolf. She heads the school's English department. WTOP has not seen those the post, but we did reach out to Wolf who has declined to comment. It's the second time in a month a Montgomery County Public school teacher School has been placed on administrative leave for posts related to the Israel -Hamas War. He pretended to be a federal cop. Now this DC man has been sentenced to nearly three years behind bars. 41 -year -old Arian Tahirzadeh pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy, voyeurism, and other charges. In August of last year, Tahirzadeh and another man were accused of posing as federal agents, making friends with Secret Service agents and scamming way their into free housing and other benefits at luxury apartment buildings in DC. Tahirzadeh Judge also ordered him to pay the apartment owners more than $700 ,000 in restitution. He's expected to turn himself over to prison authorities next month. A co -conspirator, 36 -year -old Haider Ali of Springfield, was sentenced earlier to more than five years behind bars. It's 10 -06, police in Northern Virginia say it helps keep the community safer, and now the effort is being expanded. Since the automated license plate reader program launched last We've recovered over 130 stolen vehicles We've placed about 714 arrest Most of those being felonies. The county received the grant to launch more of the plate readers. Bull explains they're strategically placed. They're either in high crime areas or areas where we believe that these cameras would solve crime. a If car that passes a reader is reported stolen, officers are alerted. The department's also addressing privacy concerns. The main thing we did was reduce our data retention period from 12 months to just 30 days. In Fairfax County, Scott Gelman, WTOP News. Maryland's governor is proposing drastic cuts to the state's transportation spending as a way of tackling a multi -billion dollar long -term budget shortfall. The Washington Post reports Wes Moore's six -year plan calls for an percent 8 cut in annual budgets to nearly all of the state's transportation agencies. That includes the highway, transit, ports and airports agencies, and the Motor Vehicle Administration. 1007, has your family already watched Dashing Through the Snow? If so, WTOP film critic Jason Fraley says you should try the new Christmas comedy Candy Cane Lane, which is now out on Prime Video. After losing his job, a jolly father tries to win 100 grand in a neighborhood decorating contest to save his family around the holidays. It's not groundbreaking like Beverly Hills Cop or Coming to America, but Eddie Murphy has great chemistry with Tracee Ellis Ross of TV's Black -ish. The premise makes it seem like Murphy will echo Tim Taylor in those great annual decorating duels on Home Improvement, but the script suddenly veers into the supernatural, unleashing holy hell with four calling birds and ten lords a leaping. Rather than few a thoughtful gifts, this film packs Santa's bag with tons of shiny presents, some on your list, many unnecessary, but even if it's not a new Christmas classic, it's something new to watch with the family.

Fresh update on "secret service" discussed on What Bitcoin Did
"And literally tomorrow. He's gone. I mean, yes. And, you know, it's so interesting is in the beginning he was he was he was a gold bug and he was somebody who really helped me understand the Austrian school in application and what went wrong with it. But so he hated Bitcoin in the beginning, just hated it. And then and then a few of us were able to orange pill him. And now he's you know, he actually this is going to sound a bit strange, but he's a deeply religious person. He thinks Bitcoin was divinely sent. And we don't know who Satoshi is because these are just it was just one of the miracles of of life. And I respect that. And I love that he thinks that because he might be right. And but the point is that that's how far he's gone down the orange pill rabbit hole on. Right. Yeah, 100 percent. Right. And I don't think he sold all of his gold, but he's he's definitely a real assets kind of kind of guy and understands that this is the fallback. And he's absolutely right. Bitcoin is the fallback. And a lot of a lot of folks own it for that reason, that it's insurance against the collapse of the of the system. But if we could step back, why? So why am I building a bank in the middle of all of that conversation that I just laid out? Well, you can see where I'm coming out on this. I don't think the banking system is stable, but I also don't think it's going away tomorrow. So sorry, Jeff, I'm probably you're probably cringing as you're listening to this. So if if the traditional financial system is not going away tomorrow, then those two financial systems need to coexist. And how do we create a bridge where they don't hurt each other? And what I'm talking about here is the Bitcoin financial system and the U.S. dollar financial system, traditional financial systems with fiat currencies all included. And so the point is, how do you create a way with a very different settlement characteristics of these two systems that they don't hurt each other? And last year they both hurt each other. And it really pained me because I was watching it and it was pretty obvious that the banks that were servicing the crypto industry were were doing too much maturity transformation. I mentioned on stage with you yesterday, Silvergate had 10 cents of demand deposits in cash as of last summer. And so when 10 percent of its depositors showed up, then then the liquidity was gone and then they had to go to their backup liquidity and they had to start selling bonds at a loss. Now, to Alan Lane's credit, that bank did not actually fail. They chose to liquidate it. So he did. He paid all his depositors back and his shareholders are going to get something back as well. That tells you that was better managed than Silicon Valley Bank was. But but it wasn't managed for the reality of what we're living in, which is that money is just moving faster. And this new technology, even for the U.S. dollar, is going to cause a lot faster bank runs and and the banks are just not set up for that. And I do worry about it. Well, I've told you this before. I think I said to you on stage yesterday, I don't keep much money in my personal bank account. Yep. I do have to keep my tax buy. So any any savings goes into Bitcoin. Yeah. And I keep I keep enough credit in my account for the next three months. So if anything disastrous should happen, we're fine. But I do have to work in capital. Yeah. But I do have a vault with the bank where every month when I pay it, get paid, I put my tax buy. So when my tax is due, I can just pay it off. That grows up to a decent sized amount. I can't do the same with the business. The reason I can't do the same with the business is I can't have Bitcoin volatility risk when I have to pay everyone's salaries. And, you know, we've got seven, eight people who work across the podcast in the event. Amazing things. So that account can fluctuate anything from 100,000 to 600,000 because of the cycle of when we get paid. I would much I have far more interest in having a bank account which I pay for, which acts like a vault and stores my money and has no risk. I would pay for that service as if I had to choose between that or a bank that offered me a low interest rate. I'm not here for the interest rate. We we make money making content. Of course. Yes. And so I don't need to I don't need an interest rate. I just want a bank where I know where my money's in is there an interest rate in an inflationary environment? Well, yes. Yes, you do. But what I'm saying is that's not my primary concern. That's not your business. I'm not I'm not looking for operating cash flows, not financial cash flows. I'm looking for if there is another financial crisis, because a financial crisis is likely a banking crisis. Correct. Always. Yes. And I know our equivalent of the FDIC ensures up to 80, 90,000. That could collapse our business. If I'd lost. Of course it could. Yeah, I could maybe not. I could make payroll one month and not the next month. Yeah. I don't want that risk. Right. I want. So this is why when you've told me about what you're doing with Custodia, I'm like, okay, well, I need that in the UK. We don't have that. I think our banks are a little bit more responsible. And I think our central bank's a little bit more responsible. But I still don't want the risk because there would be a contagion anyway. We had the contagion. We had the contagion in 2008. The government had to take over the Bank of Scotland and Lloyds. So I want a service like this, and I don't understand why more people aren't doing it. Well, to give you some perspective, the community banks had eight cents in cash for their demand deposits and everybody was rushing to the large banks, the money center and GCIB banks. They had 12 cents in cash, right? It's not that different to your point, right? It's in a crisis, none of in a true crisis, none of them, none of them survive. But you're absolutely right. This happened to a lot of Silicon Valley tech companies. They were so focused on building their business. They forgot to do the counterparty credit risk analysis of their own bank. Did they even know they needed to? Well, anybody who studied economics or finance in school understands how fractional reserve banking works and should understand that it's fundamentally unstable because there's always a point at which any bank that is leveraged like that could fail. But I don't want to put my name to that, right? So here's the funny thing, right? You talked about the central bank in England, the Bank of England just came out with a paper last week about stablecoins and they're requiring pound sterling stablecoin issuers to be banks that hold their reserves in central bank accounts. Now, banks are defined a little bit differently in the UK. There are true depository institutions and then the UK also has these e-money businesses. But ultimately it has to be a payments regulated business and the reserves have to be held one for one at the central bank and there's no interest going to be paid is the recommendation from the Bank of England. This is, it sounds great. It's exactly what you're looking for, right? You can just keep your payroll cash and your tax cash in a stablecoin and not have to worry about your bank going bust. Well, the Fed called that very business model unsafe and unsound in January. Why? Why did they say it? Is it safe and unsound because of what they've built already and they know that will collapse everything else? Or did they have a reason, even though you can call bullshit on it, did they have a reason? Oh, well, they had an 86 page order explaining the reasons why it was unsafe and unsound. By the way, the longest ever Fed denial prior to that, to our denial was three pages. Okay. So they, they, they came at us so over the top that, and what's funny is the world figured that out. And, and within literally within a couple of weeks, I got a call from American banker asking if I would accept a nomination for being innovator of the year. And they ended up giving me that award. Thank God. And, and, and multiple awards have come my way because people understood we got, we both custodian and the state of Wyoming got really screwed by the Fed. Okay. So we understand, like people understood that, that I would say it's, it's 95, five, the people who looked at what happened and said, all right, they, you know, it's off percent protest too much. They went so far over the top. But what were they, what were they getting at? Some would argue that, that your, the question is, is right, that, that they were so afraid of a bank that wasn't going to lend and, and calling that unsafe and unsound, whereas a traditional lending bank, which we all look at and say, well, of course there's a point at which every bank that does fractional reserve banking has a risk of failure and, and that's unsafe and unsound. So I, you know, I, they didn't say that in the 86 page order, but, um, What was their key point? Everything else. What was their key point? Oh, it was, it was risk. Risky, risky, risky. But what's the risk of, well, but also, okay, it was, keep in mind the time it was digital assets coming off the failures of 2000 of 2022, including an especially FTX, right? The, the, the bank regulators all, all came out in the U S in, on January 3rd, we got denied on January 27th and, and went hardcore anti-crypto on January 23rd. Hold on. So if you, uh, if there was no crypto component and you were just a full reserve bank, hold on. There was another one years ago. They blocked it. Oh, multiple. They blocked multiple. Um, but so, yeah, so this is interesting cause this is, I was alluding to this on stage yesterday. The fed has also blocked other uninsured state chartered banks. So here's what's happening. The FDIC is not ensuring certain types of banks. They really don't want any innovation whatsoever, period. It seems in the financial system. They only want the traditional banks to do anything in financial, in banking. They don't want any, anybody new. Is this because the traditional banks do their dirty business? Well, that's a good question. I can't, I can't say that. I will say that, um, it's, it's very obvious that there's a huge incumbency bias. Um, and there's more that I know that I can't say, but, but the gist is, um, it will, and it will come out at some point soon, I hope. But, um, but, but long story short, um, there is a huge incumbency bias and, and to get to your question, was it crypto? Okay. The fed has also denied and the FDIC has denied insurance to a number of, of payment banks that don't want to lend. And, and these other ones don't have any crypto component whatsoever. So what they've done is go, go to the six US states, six of the 50 US states have uninsured bank charters. Three of them are red states. Three of them are blue states. And four of those states have chartered banks that are applying for fed, fed master accounts. Many of those banks have applied to the FDIC and the FDIC said, no, if the FDIC insured us and we did apply to for FDIC insurance, if the FDIC had insured us, then we would have gotten in to the fed system. But the FDIC said, no. Okay. So your question is what happened to us specific to crypto? We'll go look at the fact that the FDIC and the fed are both rejecting other non lending payment banks as well. One of them is a, is a company that I mentioned yesterday that was doing trade credit, basically trying to speed up payments and supply chains and using technology to do it. They essentially set up, as I understand it, an API call at customs offices so that when goods clear customs that the invoice is automatically generated and then the payment gets started. And they were using technology to do this. This sounds like a really great idea. Let's speed up payments and supply chains. And unfortunately they got denied. And I don't, I don't fully understand it, but the same thing, the same basic language was unsafe and unsound. So that's going in the same direction of where you are, which is they just don't want non lending banks. But I do believe in our case because what, what did the fed say in that 86 page order all over? It was risk, risk, risk, risk, risk related to crypto.

Well, I do smirk when these people say unsafe and unsound when they've built an unsafe and unsound system. As Pierre put out a brilliant tweet recently, what did he say? The arrogance of telling me how to be responsible with my money when you've built up a 33 trillion dollar debt. Something along those lines. Yeah. It was brilliant. Well, listen, I mean, I said something yesterday, you even tweeted about it, about certain things feel very un-American. I've come to this country for years. I love it here. I love American people. I love the American values. I absolutely love how this country was found, even though you kicked us out. I loved it. And I love reading about what the founding fathers did. I wonder now if they were here today, rewriting the constitution, obviously there was, you know, every, when you're in the UK, we know, we know two of the amendments. All the rest, we don't really know. We know that we have a first amendment to protect speech, second amendment to right to bear arms. But I actually believe right now there should be a third one that relates to money. Something that relates to a protection of your rights to your money. And I don't know what it is or how it is. I'm not smart enough to construct it. I just feel like that is a missing component, which, which feels like something that would be very American, that you would have the right to own your own gold or your own money, whatever it is. I believe you need it. Okay. So I don't think that the founding fathers thought that was necessary because of article one, section 10 of the US constitution, which defined the dollar as specie, gold and silver. I don't think they thought they needed an amendment specifically to that because it was already covered in the constitution itself. However, the Supreme Court has, and I don't know offhand, traces an expert on, on, on the cases, Supreme Court cases related to money, but basically the Supreme Court overturned it. So, you know, there've been a lot of, of cases, a lot of things that have, have caused the constitution to de facto be overturned in interpretations by the Supreme Court. Interstate commerce is one of them that blew a huge hole between, you know, essentially in the 10th amendment and the whole notion that the fundamental unit of government in the United States is the 50 states. It's not the federal government, right? But so that, you know, if you look at the creeping centralization and the creeping overturning of the US constitution, it's, it's, it's happened over time and it's been, it's been steady. It's not like, you know, there've been events along the way, but it's been, it's been fairly steady. As an aside, when I was visiting Washington DC, one of these last times, I went to both the Lincoln monument and the Jefferson Memorial and you can see, right, the Jefferson Memorial is from the, from, from the founding time of the country. And then the Lincoln monument is the civil war. So there's, you know, give or take a hundred years in between. And you can see in just the statements of those US presidents how Jefferson was so committed to devolving power and decentralizing power and Lincoln was the opposite. So the US had had a huge change, sea change just in that, in that first century of its life. And it's continued. And so it's, it's just interesting how, how two presidents who are highly respected I'd been to their monuments previously many times, but it wasn't until I had the lens of the experience, the life experience and just age of, of understanding that when I read the things that they were saying that were inscribed in the, in those marble monuments to them, just how different they were. So there's a perception that the US is losing it now. No, I think it's been a creeping thing that's been happening throughout the US's history. And there are things that I wish we could go back and change, but, but, but so the Supreme Court was the one who, who blew a hole in the constitution by, there was a Supreme Court case that, that, that, that essentially said, no money isn't specie and, and having a Fiat dollar that wasn't actually gold or silver is, is, is, is okay. Now with this Supreme Court uphold that, I don't, I don't know, maybe they would overturn it. They've had a, the Supreme Court hasn't been afraid to overturn bad precedent. However, you have to get what's called standing to be able to get to the Supreme Court and it's hard to get standing to sue over issues like that. There's a very interesting law review article talking about why bank regulators in the US almost never get sued. And it's by David Ziering, it's called the Corporatist Origins of Bank Regulation. And you know, the bank rate, federal bank regulators we know have been operating above the law, right? Operation Choke Point was not legal and they did it anyway. And the impetus for our case was the, the Federal Reserve shall provide services, services to all eligible depository institutions. That is a paraphrase of the statutory language of the Monetary Control Act of 1980. It's very clear and the legislative history is very clear. The Federal Reserve must, literally the word shall provide services to all eligible depository institutions. And even there's a non-discrimination provision in that law as well, right? I mean, it's crystal clear. If you're a charter financial, charter depository institution, you get Federal Reserve Services. Well that had, you mentioned there were other banks who had tried to challenge the Fed's denial and, and the Fed was able to block those, those, the first two cases, the first two attempts to deny or to challenge the denials were blocked. Ours is, ours is the third and the third time was the charm. And I obviously can't talk about the case, but I will just say it's public knowledge that the motion to dismiss the case was denied and it has gone forward to discovery. This is all public information and the discovery is slated to end December 18th. Can you tell us, is it you litigating them? Yes we sued them. You sued them. And can you tell us what it is specifically you are suing them on? On that statutory language. Okay. Right. So, so if we step back, what has happened? There's been this creeping centralization of power in Washington DC and in, in our industry, it's it's to the bank regulators who literally have no checks and balances on them because nobody ever sues them and they're not subject to the appropriations process. This is David Zering's law review article, which is terrific. And he pointed, he looked at how many times the Fed got sued in the decade, 2010 to 2020 for things other than, you know, employment cases and things like that. When a bank actually sued the Fed and it was twice, and one of them is not relevant because it was over the constitutionality of whether the CFPB, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was properly funded. So that's not, that's not a bank regulation case. There was only one. And so, you know, when an agency is almost never sued and there's no check and balance on their power, what do you think happens? They get away with whatever they want to get away with. I didn't know this at the time, but one of my law school buddies was the lawyer who sued the FDIC on behalf of the payday lenders to regarding whether operation choke point was real because the FDIC was originally, um, denying that it was real and, and, and, and according to the record, lying because once David got them into court and got into discovery, he started finding all kinds of evidence that they had lied. And so the FDIC settled that lawsuit and agreed to stop subtly pressuring the banks not to bank the payday lending companies. But we know operation choke point in the crypto industry, Nick Carter was right to coin the phrase operation choke point 2.0 because we've been in one of the industries that's been targeted by this subtle backroom pressure of the bank regulators. But because they're almost never sued again, there's no check and balance on them. And so sometimes it's clear they look at the law and say, well, I, I just make it up, right? I mean, they just, they're not, they're not challenged on their interpretations of the law as to whether they're valid or not. Operation choke point was not legal and it wasn't until somebody sued them in that case, the FDIC that it was determined just how out of bounds the FDIC was at that time. And so that's David's point that these, these federal bank regulators are way over their skis. There's a structural problem that, that there is no check and balance. They're not, that's an American problem. It is a very American problem, but it's un-American to your point. And this is what frustrates me so much because it's a very, America is a proud country. We know this. It's proud of its values. It's proud of its history. It's, you know, it's, it's so proud of its constitution. People talk about this being unconstitutional passionately. You have 300 million very proud Americans. And then you have a group of people who, who literally operate in opposite to how the founding fathers did. The founding fathers tried to build everything to build a strong Republic. They understood the weaknesses of man and well, I say weaknesses of man at the same time, but weaknesses of people and they put every check and balance they could think of. They argued over it. And now we've got a bunch of, I think corrupt crony career politicians, uh, who, uh, govern over a bunch of three letter agencies who constantly make decisions to crush individuals, crush business. And I just don't understand it. I don't under, cause look, if there's ever a tackle free speech, people defend against with the first amendment, with everything they have same with even with the second amendment. Look, I hate all these shootings. I don't understand why you have guns because we just don't have them, but I absolutely respect it. You've got the knife problem in London, right? I mean, it's just a different manifestation of the same issue. Yes and no. Let's not get into that. Cause everyone listening will get wound up, but I'm just saying, I don't, I don't understand it because I'm from a country that doesn't have it, but I respect it cause it is your country and, and whatever happens, it doesn't matter how many schools have shootings. People will not give up their second amendment, but they give up everything else. They'll fight over abortion, they'll fight over trans rights, they'll fight over climate change, but actually they won't fight over the collective thing that's crushing them together. Right. But see, that's the amazing thing, which is that the, the, the media and the education system culture has pushed Americans into those, those culture wars literally and not, it's bread and circuses. It's taking everybody's eye off the ball of the fact that, that mom and pop are being stolen from in the way that the financial system is set up. And I think the anger out there is incredible. One of the things I love about living in both worlds, right? I was in New York for 30 years. I lived in a very high end neighborhood in Greenwich, Connecticut with two of my neighbors were billionaires. Okay. But I can also go back home and strike up a conversation with, you know, a minimum wage worker who is, you know, working hard to, to put, you know, food on the family table. In fact, actually I want to thank somebody who, uh, I don't know if he even knew who I was, but it was an oil field worker. We were out to dinner with friends. One of our friends was having a birthday and to this random strange stranger couple paid for all of our dinners. And you know, this was probably not somebody who had extreme wealth, but he was a generous person who saw happy people having a birthday and he just randomly paid for all of our dinners. And I'm pretty sure he was an oil field worker who had just gotten paid. And this was in, I will pay it forward. I'm going to do that. When I find another circumstance like that, I'm just going to pay for somebody's dinners and pay it forward. But this is the point, right? Like, like, you know, a lot of the, the, the New York, you know, the billionaire set would never be in a position where, you know, somebody who just come up, came off the oil field and just gotten paid would buy them dinner. Right. Because there would just be this divide. Okay. But I live in both worlds and, and so I appreciate it and, and, and pride myself in understanding both sides. So that's the background that I want to lay out when I say the anger out there over what's really going on is incredibly high, but it's, it's not coordinated. I know it's not. And, and they've been taking advantage of that. Yes. And I think if you, if you, if you've got just random selection of Democrat voters, a random selection of Republican voters said, list these five issues in order that are most important to you and your family, abortion, um, gun rights, climate change, inflation, yeah, or money, whatever. I think most would put the money near the top. Oh, of course. They're going to put their family household table finances issues. So you sit them together and go, all right, what do you want to do? Do you want to argue over these three or do you want to join forces on this? And you have to, you have to get a uniting force. This is why I find Vivek so interesting and I find RFK so interesting because especially Vivek, you know, he particularly impressed me yesterday in that he recognizes the size of federal government. He said, I'm going to reduce it by 75%. Yeah. We're going to cut this. That's going to be a hell of a fight for him, right? If he ever wanted to get into office. But yeah, I don't know if they'll do it. You know, but the fact that he wants to do that, he cares about that. He understands the value of Bitcoin. He understands what's going wrong with the Fed. Like he understands that primary issue that affects both parties and he refuses to get involved in all the other nonsense and RFK is similar. He's going independent. Like America's pushing towards needing this unifying force. It's not going to be Biden or Trump. They're not going to unify the country. Of course not. Andrew Yang would have been a good one as well. You know, what's interesting is, is how many people I've heard at this conference say, why can't Vivek and RFK join forces? I know. Right? They could win, right? I actually think they could. I mean, certainly RFK, you know, he's polling at 22% in a three way race right now. That's unbelievable. It is. Right. But that tells you so. And I was, I tweeted out yesterday, I was standing backstage when his motorcade arrived. They actually drove into the convention center. And I don't know if you're aware because you're not in the US and getting the daily news, but he is, there was an idiot who tried to break into his house, was released on bail and went back and tried to break into his house that, that afternoon. So twice the same day, right? He's got real security issues and Biden won't give him secret service protection. And I am really just appalled. And you just look, I mean, you see the metal detectors that we all had to walk through, right? That's all privately paid. And I look at that and I say, that is a competitor to the sitting president. And it's never been, no, no sitting president has ever withheld from a competitor that was a legitimate candidate, secret service protection. It's never happened until now. Okay. So there's so much that's gone wrong. That's even worse. That's happening in the Biden administration right now. And you know, the sad thing is Biden himself did not govern as a hard left person when he was in the U S Senate, but he's governing hard left now. Yeah. I mean, I find that holes, especially the history of both his father and his uncle, you know, his family has been targeted for sure. Why they wouldn't give him additional protection. Because how many, how many millions I was talking last night with, with folks at our dinner, we were trying to estimate like back of the envelope, how many millions of dollars is he having to spend on personal security? And he has to raise the money to do that. I don't, I don't, I mean, the Kennedy family is wealthy, but not that wealthy. And it's all, you know, he's, he's obviously next generation and it's been spread around a number of people. But my point is, I don't think he's independently wealthy. Well, even if you are, you know, as well as I do, wealth doesn't just sit in a bank account. Well, you know, then you spread out an investment. So it actually liquidated wealth. He's got to spend, we were guessing at least $10 million on his personal security. Okay. So he's got to raise that money from campaign donations if he's not fun to get himself. And I don't, my guess is that he, I don't, I mean, his wife is a, is a successful actress. I don't know what their personal finances look like, but he's not a billionaire. Okay. So, so spending at least $10 million on personal security is, is, is, is something that, that he has to fund. And so if you think about it from the perspective of campaign finance, by forcing him to fund that personal security out of his own campaign funds, he's got less money to spend on commercials and, you know, campaign staff, right? That's what Biden's doing. That to me violates campaign finance law. It's like, it's like, it's almost like another choke point. Of course. But that's, that's the point, right? It's the centralization of power in Washington DC and he's fighting against that. And you know, he's, he's actually, he actually said he thinks the CIA was involved in his father and, and uncle's murders. And you know, Vivek, I have no idea whether he's gotten some of the same, you know, personal security issues by saying he's going to fire 75% of the US, US government. But those two are taking on some very powerful interests and all this centralization of power in Washington, in Washington DC, which was not the original constitution. And a lot of folks to your point don't understand just how much the regulations have, have, have been captured by private interests. This is why the big and big, big, big banks keep getting bigger and they won't let new, new ones in or the small, small banks, you know, are, are, are obviously, they got bullwhip affected and probably won't survive. Right. So, so we're going to just see a consolidation of the small banks going away and the big banks continuing to get bigger. I mean, my God, they, they let, they let the, an exception for JP Morgan to, to purchase more than, to purchase the, the, the first Republic stub and Silicon Valley, some of the Silicon Valley bank assets, that they gave them an exception from the law that says that you can't have more than 10% of the deposit base in the United States. Well, if you're just going to waive an exception like that, then, you know, JP Morgan's got an interest in creating an environment where more and more banks fail and they can just go pick, pick off the best parts of the businesses because they're just going to get that exception waived. Okay. This is the stuff that's happening in the United States that makes people so angry. There's no wonder that Jamie Dimon doesn't like Bitcoin. Well, he says he doesn't like it, right? But they've built, just like the other big banks, they've built Bitcoin custody and they're ready to go. They're probably not as hell at the SEC because Coinbase is the, is, has locked up the ETF custody business. The only non Coinbase custodian in all the ETF custody filings, all the ETF, the Bitcoin needs spot ETF filings. The only non Coinbase custodian is Fidelity for the Fidelity fund. Everybody else is using Coinbase and I'm quite sure Bank of New York Mellon and State Street and JP Morgan, who are the biggest securities custodians, are mad as hell. Of course. Yeah. I mean, I think it's a, I think it's a reluctance to get involved and I think it wants to be involved. I think Jamie Dimon wishes this would all go away. Well, certainly the, the intelligentsia in the bank industry wishes this would all go away. Yeah. Um, and we've been a target of a lot of misinformation from the banking industry and, um, and a campaign to, um, that some of which has been public, some of which has not, um, to, to get the Fed to block us. Just fight them. Just keep fighting them. Well, we are fighting them. And you know, that's one of the great things in the wisdom of the, of the founding fathers of the United States is that the, they created three equal branches of government. And so what we're talking about with the consolidation of power in Washington DC is the executive branch, right? That they've taken power away from the States. They've taken power away from, um, individuals and put it in Washington DC and you can see it by the way, I, I, I was an intern in the White House in 1992 and I just, I remember what Washington DC looked like back then compared to what it looks like now that the giant sucking sound of money that has come into that area of the United States and the huge upgrade of real estate and the massive increase in the cost of living. How did that happen? It was because of all the centralization of power in Washington DC. And now Washington DC is this super high end city and you know, incredibly expensive to live in. It didn't used to be that way when I was working in 1992. I mean, there, there, there, there were a lot of rundown buildings and there hadn't been this huge real estate upgrade and now it's, you know, huge portions of what used to be poorer neighborhoods are now gentrified and fashionable, fashionable and then super expensive. Right. And all the, all the people who lived there got pushed out by that. That wasn't good for them. That was not good for them. But um, but yeah, so I lament, I don't like spending time in Washington DC because I know that a lot of the wealth that you see visibly when you walk around the place came from the centralization of power and just this skimming of wealth from the middle class. Well, I don't understand how all these politicians got so rich either. Well, Elizabeth Warren is according to three million is 90, 90 now. Right. And she was a Harvard law professor cause she wasn't hurting. I don't know what her husband does, but $90 million from, where'd you get from Nancy? Where'd you get your money from? Well her husband was a real estate developer, so at least it's a little bit more explainable and a good trader. Yeah. I mean, when Congress exempted itself from insider trading laws, you know that there's something wrong. I know. It's like, come on. I know. I know. Again, like there's so much that has, the US that has moved away from the original constitution, but I didn't finish the thought about the judicial branch, but one of the great things about the judicial branch is it is the great equalizer. So I mean, unfortunately it's expensive to litigate because there's so many rules in the, in the judicial branch. Right. But, and so we've seen some litigation in this case, but um, in this industry that has pushed back against the overreach of regulation that came from the executive branch. So when there's overreach in the executive branch and concentration of power in Washington DC, you have two ways to deal with it. One is get the law changed in Congress. Well, for reasons we just talked about, Congress is a unit party and wants to centralize power and more money to themselves. They get rich by going into public service. It didn't used to be that way. And the other is the judicial branch and the judicial branch. Nick Carter has, has said it and it's right. It's the last bastion of freedom in the United States. It's the last great equalizer. And I just got done reading John Deaton's book. It's a phenomenal book. It's called Food Stamp Warrior. You know, he's the lawyer who gathered 75,000 XRP holders to agree to be sued by the U S government. They, they, they intervened in the XRP case against the SCC to be 75,000 people from around the world agreed to become defendants against the U S government. In that case, it's a, it's a, it's an incredible story. And I don't agree with, with, with John that he moved on from Bitcoin pretty fast because of the scaling issues. I don't agree with him there, but he's a phenomenally smart guy. And that book was a stunning book. And he grew up in the hood. He was one of three white people in his high school. And just what it, his experience of, of going from, he was a food stamp warrior, grew up in a, in a, in a very poor family, knew real hunger and, and, um, lifted himself up by bootstraps on boots he never even had. And it's just such an incredible rags to riches story, but he is a fighter and he is a perfect example of somebody who used his platform for good and pulled together 75,000 people to intervene in, in what he calls one of the strangest writs of mandamus ever filed in the U S court system. And he succeeded. And it's a, it's a phenomenal story. Um, I highly recommend the book. It was such a page Turner. It's a, it's a crypto adjacent book, um, because he's obviously a well-known person in this space. Uh, and I don't want to get into the Bitcoin versus XRP thing, but, but I have to, but I will say that, that, that he did an incredible service to all of us. And his point is well taken. And he, he, he said, and I didn't know back, back then, because I wasn't following it. He said, this is going to impact the entire crypto industry, this, this XRP lawsuit. And he turned out to be right. Um, and so by fighting and by, by, by being a brass knuckle and, and literally brass knuckle, he's going to, you know, if you read his book, you'll hear about his brass knuckle stories. Um, he's a true fighter and, you know, became a U S Marine and, and, um, and then a prosecutor and, and ended up, he said, like, he was so successful. In his law practice that he started to get bored by it. And then crypto became the thing that caused him to get out of bed in the morning. And he's not been making money off it, off his crypto lawsuits. He did all of that because he was an XRP owner and he said, look, what the sec did was steal from people by that's his perspective by, by, by, by calling XRP a security and having all the exchanges delisted. Um, that was what he, that was what he concluded and he wanted to stand up and fight and thank God he did. Thank God. We have people like that in our industry.
FBI Officials Singled Out Agents Who Were Former Military
"And again, I'll say it again because the show is fair. have I very strong opinions about things, especially police state type activities, because I a was cop and I did not abuse my authority. And I don't understand why other people, if you're going to go in that space, can't control your inclination to do that. I know what happens, you know, as corrupts. I get it, but that doesn't mean I understand it. I never did it. Why can't you just do the right thing? So the story about the FBI potentially targeting members of the military, which again, they strongly deny. And I'm going to, Jim, is there any way you can do this? Do they have a PR branch? I guess you can read the public relations or something. No, I'm serious. Can we reach out? I'd love to. I'd love to get a comment on this story. They'd like to come hear it. There's this woman, Deena Perkins and Jeffrey Veltri, who were accused by Carrie Pickett in the Washington Times, basically of targeting people who served in the Marine Corps or military branches. This is serious charges. If the woman and the guy would like to come on, I'm happy to hear him out. I don't want this story to be true, but this is devastating. I mean, just think about this for a second. If even a shred of this is true, and I'll get into the article in more depth in a second, imagine you're a young man or young woman. You sign up for the Marine Corps, one of the toughest boot camps in the world. The Marines who are at the forefront of any time the world is in conflict, the Marines go out there first. You got expeditionary units, you got reaction forces in the Marine Corps. They're there on the ground doing God's work to preserve freedom all over the world. These guys are badasses. To all the Marines in my audience, I tell you this with respect. Don't take this the wrong way. I envy you. I really do. I don't envy lot a of people. I envy you. My greatest regret in my lifetime is not going in the Marine Corps, because it's a different breed of human. It just is. When I was an instructor in our academy, in my last line of work, I always made the Marines the class presidents, because they were just, they were always on time, looked sharp, and it was their example that kept everyone else in line. I didn't care if you were the CEO of a company. We had a guy in one of the Secret Service classes, went to the San Francisco office. He was a medical doctor. He was a nice guy, but I didn't pick him for class president. We picked the Marines, because they were always five paragraph order types. Bang, bang, bang. You go into Corps, Marine and you find yourself in the FBI, and

Jordan Cancels Summit With Biden, Sisi and Abbas in Amman
"That works. So Biden was overseas again. By the way, I appreciate everyone taking my stuff yesterday. It's a compliment. I don't say it to be like a jerk or anything, but came out yesterday and told you Biden's Middle East had one purpose. That purpose was to delay a ground invasion. There's absolutely no reason Biden needed to be in Israel yesterday. He was humiliated. He went over, the Jordanians canceled on him. Folks, do you have any idea what an embarrassment that is? Can I walk you through some of this done having actually a foreign advance in Jordan myself for First Lady Laura Bush when she went to Oman and Petra? Yeah, I was there. I was in Jordan for three weeks. When you're overdue in a foreign advance for the president, the first lady or anyone else in a foreign country, there is an inordinate sense that go into it. I'm not going to go for obvious reasons into a lot of it. But there is a lot of work. Military assets are moved. There's a ton of stuff that happens for the Jordanians at the last minute. And Abbas Mahmoud to cancel this thing at the last minute. I cannot tell you what what a slap in the face diplomatically that is. In my time, my 12 years with the United States Secret Service, I have never seen anything like it. I have never said now I've seen us cancel on them. Matter of fact, I was in Indonesia twice when we canceled on them. Once because of the BP oil spill and once an Obamacare vote was going on. I have never been in a country where the country has given the us middle finger while the president
Kash Patel: Terrorists Are Already Here in the U.S.
"In versus what they could have voted in. Cash, I had a friend of mine, an old colleague from the Secret Service on the other day, he's over at home, was at Homeland and really, really smart guy like gets it, you know, kind of like you. He gets it. And his name is Charles Chuck Marino. Good guy. And a very sober guy, again, not known for bombastic commentary at all and that reputation in service. But he said, listen, the national alert should be up to like the EFCON level nationally should be elevated right now for the use of defense analogy, because we don't know who's here. southern The border is an absolute disaster. Again, you've been in these meetings with the Trump administration. There is absolutely zero chance that one of these cells isn't in the United States right now. They're already here and don't even I wonder your word or comfort for it. The Biden administration in New York is finally admitted just a couple of months ago that they lost track track of two dozen foreign terrorist organization affiliates that permeated our southern border and are currently in the United States of America and they don't know where they are. That's the two dozen they admitted to us, Dan. There's 225 illegal every crossing day. And we talked about at the top of the show is Russia, Iran, China, Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Mexican drug cartels are getting together with the CCP to permeate this border. Are you telling me there's only two dozen? What I'm scared about is there's two thousand, twenty thousand. And we can't find a single one of them because all Joe Biden wants to do is give him voter a ID card. This attack is here and the terrible thing about these terrorists is their patience. They will wait and wait and wait and then they will strike us when they think it's most beneficial to them like now the

When Donald Trump says they're coming after you, I'm just in the way, he's 100 % right. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with Mike Speraza. Mike, I think mostly we're going to talk about Trump today, but we have to talk about another dredge of our Erie County community, Mark Poloncarz. But we'll save a little bit of that news about Mark for last. Another fearless leader in New York. Man, what's worse than fearless? He's fearful. He's fearful of his own reputation is all he's really fearful of. That's what I'd say, but we'll save that for last. You do not want to miss his response to the two rapes by migrants, I should say. You do not want to hear his exact ... We're going to read the exact Facebook post. I won't even summarize, I'm going to read you exactly what he has to say. You don't want to miss that at the end of the show. Filled with compassion, I'm sure. So Trump indicted for a fourth time. This is not unexpected. This was by Fulton County DA Fannie Willis. This is for election interference and Trump and many others actually must surrender by August 25th at noon, Mike. Your thoughts initially on Trump being indicted for a fourth time. Well, it's not shocking because they've been telling us for weeks that they were going to make a show of this. Atlanta or Fulton County, they have literally been talking about this for months. They've been talking about mug shots. They've been talking about the whole song and dance of an actual bringing Trump in and going through the fingerprinting, going through the photos. They've been doing this and telling us this for months. So it's not shocking. What is shocking them, Mike, is that you've seen the polls, right? Every time this happens, Trump's numbers skyrocket. His fundraising skyrockets every single time. And now they're doing it again. And this might be the most ridiculous of them all because of the charade and the show that it's going to be. If I was going to use an example, if I'm a Barack Obama and I'm the leader of the party, not saying he is, but maybe he is, I'm saying to myself, the last thing that I want the media and I want law enforcement and I want the legal system to do is prop this guy up anymore because every time we do it, it backfires at us. I'd be like, keep this guy out of your mouth. Keep him away from you. I don't want to hear Donald Trump. I don't want to see Donald Trump. But no, they do the opposite. And I think their hope is, Mike, they get him on one of these charges. I don't think it matters. The people that are voting for Donald Trump, myself included, I'm going to raise my hand. I am voting for Donald Trump no matter what happens. He could get convicted on all 75 indictments and 400 years in prison. I don't care I'm voting for him. Now, if something came out that he was like a child molester or an actual murderer or something, of course that would change. But based on these four indictments, no matter what happens in the courtroom, Donald Trump is not, it's not even a question. He is my vote. I am voting for Donald Trump. That is the president. Yeah. This, this once again, I think shows how self -serving, narcissistic and how deeply Trump derangement syndrome runs in a lot of these people's heads like Fannie Willis. This is the, the reading, I guess I'll, I'll use this out of an article off of Fox. Let's, uh, let's see this by, oh, this was seven hours ago, Houston, Keene of Fox news. This says a 97 page indictment. The charges include violating the Georgia RICO act RICO. If you don't know what that means, racketeer influenced and corrupt organizations act often, I think you'd hear that it may be for mafia activity, drug activity, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree conspiracy to commit false statements and writings conspiracy to commit filing false documents conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree filing false documents and solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer. Now former Trump white house chief of staff, Mark Meadows, attorneys, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Kenneth Chesbrough, Jeff Clark, John Eastman, and others were also charged out of this years long investigation. Interesting Mike years long investigation. And here we are, August of 2023, just before presidential campaigns really heat up and debates begin. Let's talk about the timing of these indictments. I mean, we had Alvin Bragg start this whole parade off with falsifying business records, uh, you know, accusations against Donald Trump, which was total bullshit Manhattan DA, right? Alvin Bragg Bragg, next federal charges for holding classified records at Mar -a -Lago also bullshit. Go ahead. Justice department council, Jack Smith, then for the January 6th, uh, involvement, he says that Trump had basically instigating that whole event. And then further with, you know, just to layer on it, it was like icing on a cake. He had to hold Trump accountable for even more. And then finally Fulton County, DA Fannie Willis. So just the timing of this, it seems so orchestrated, um, I don't think there's any question in anybody's mind. I don't care who you are, that this has been an orchestrated attempt to take down Donald Trump. So in case nobody saw this yesterday, cause I'm sure you did, and I'm not saying you Mike, but people listening may not have, um, Sam bank from freed, uh, there was news that came out about him shelling out a hundred million dollars of stolen money, by the way, from his FTX funds to Democrat, uh, you know, nominees in the 2022 midterms. So the same day we see this crook, which we all knew were, was a crook by the way, you know, let's not forget that we all said this for a long time. This guy gave a hundred million dollars to democratic candidates across the country. That is on the same day. Also the whistleblower confirmed, um, some of the stuff in the Hunter Biden trial just yesterday. And then this comes out by the way, Mike, we forgot to mention this earlier, Fannie Willis, the genius that she is, ends up screwing up this indictment by the way, and putting it online for public knowledge before they even talk to the grand jury. Right, right. So they were working fast and they were working fast for a reason, right? This is just another show. And again, I'm here for it. I'm on the record. I'm here for it. Why? This is cementing. Donald Trump said he needed one more indictment. I'm going to say he needs one more thing. He needs the Fulton County mugshot and it's over. Once we get the mugshot, this race, not the primary is already over. The primary has been over. Once we get that mugshot, the, the 2024 race is over. It's over completely. That will set Donald Trump over the edge. His face will be on every t -shirt again, raising my hand, I'll buy 20 of them. The Donald Trump mugshot will take him through and carry him through the 2024 election. It's over. Yeah. And this, to your point about this leak, Fannie Willis essentially just simply said, I can't tell you anything. Of course you can't, right? So this was Monday. This is, this is official. The office of the Fulton County clerk or superior and magistrate courts has learned of a fictitious document that has been circulated online and reported by various media outlets to the Fulton County special purpose grand jury. While there have been no documents filed today regarding such, all members of the media should be reminded that documents that do not bear an official case number, filing date and the name of the clerk of courts in concert are not considered official filings and should not be treated as such. This was not a simple mistake is what, uh, let's see here. This was Trump attorneys, Drew Findling and Jennifer Little who slammed this. This was not a simple administrative mistake. A proposed indictment should only be in the hands of the DA's office, yet it somehow made its way to the clerk's office and was assigned a case number and a judge before the grand jury even deliberated. How could that be, Mike? Well, how can it be and how can this not just be thrown out? You know, if anyone believes in rule of law and equal justice, how can this just not be thrown out? I think to your point, Mike, like I totally agree. I think nobody who has supported Trump from the beginning has lost the feeling of support for him. I mean, if anything, it's grown and grown and grown. And then the other thing is you just wonder, will independents or any, any liberals at all liberals like Bill Maher, will any of them say, I cannot, I cannot in my right mind vote for anybody on the left anymore. They've taken this far, far too far. And I mean, it's like basically over the cliff and they're falling, waiting to see how hard it's going to, you know, how hard they're all going to hit. Here's the problem, too. In the last six years, we've had numerous people challenge elections. By the way, two of them were that I'm talking about right now were liberals. Hillary Clinton still doesn't believe she lost in 2016 and is on the record saying that. And Stacey Abrams has it, Mike. So if you really give a shit about, you know, hey, we need to bring people to justice, then do it, then go after those two. This is my problem with this whole thing. Like all these liberals, like Harry Sisson, Mr. Gen Z, oh, finally getting justice. That's bullshit. And I'm going to say it just like that. It's bullshit. Why? Because you would never, ever, ever bring these charges against Hillary Clinton. You would never, ever, ever bring these charges against Stacey Abrams there. It's political. It's targeting one person. And you know what? I'll say this, too, Mike. When Donald Trump says they're coming after you, I'm just in the way, he's 100 percent right. What does he mean by that? They don't give a shit about Trump. They do, but that's short term. They know that at most Trump's got four years left. They give a shit about all of us that can think clearly and that know they're all full of shit. That's what they're concerned about. The MAGA movement, they're petrified of it. And they need to take out its leader. And they're coming after us next. I promise you that. Well, let's talk about what can actually work in terms of Trump getting elected, in terms of stopping this crazy liberal freight train. Is it simply election? Is it actually GOP members stepping up and actually getting the balls to do something? Like do something. That would help. Stop threatening. Stop reporting. Like they're the town criers. Oh, have you seen what's going on there? Whoa, that's wrong. Oh, my gosh. What's this Fannie Willis thinking? Whoa. What was Alvin Bragg's thinking? This is this is unconstitutional. You just hear it. It's like it's like just it's like white noise now. You just hear all the Republicans, those that even want to say anything. How about the ones that never say anything? What are we paying you for? Like honestly, what are we paying you for? You're not passing any great legislation. So how about you just get a set of balls and say something? Say in something support or in not support. All you like to do is is sort of thread the needle. Stay on that tightrope. You don't want to go one side or another of the tightrope. You feel like, well, if I support Trump too much, that's not going to look good. But oh, if I if I don't support him, oh, my gosh, what are people going to think of me? Like stop thinking of what others will think of you. And how about you stand up? How about like a Vivek Ramaswamy type of statement where you actually you understand what's going on in this country and you actually take a side and you don't care who politically the person is. You stand up for what's right or what's wrong. I mean, I'm so tired of this. So do you think elections will make a difference? Do you think that some GOP members can actually make a difference? Do you think the the judicial system might make the difference? Do you think a lot of these things are just going to go basically down? I don't see them going down in many of these states. I mean, in Georgia and New York, D .C., D .C. I mean, I mean, really, like you look at this and you think, boy, these just have to be appealed and probably all the way headed right to the Supreme Court. My thoughts, honestly, are the Supreme Court right now can help. But at this point, forget Kevin McCarthy, forget Mitch McConnell, forget all the bursar artists that are in Congress, forget them all. If there's one thing that can change this and it's you, the people, you, the people are the only thing that can change this political weaponization, this political persecution. And to be honest with you, this banana republic government we got, there's one thing you can do and it's vote and it's go vote for Donald Trump. That is the one thing that we can do, Mike. Forget the courts. Forget all that. Go vote for Donald Trump. That is the only thing that we as Americans can do. Your congressmen won't do it. Your congresswomen won't do it. There's less than I bet, Mike, two percent that actually know what the hell is going on or are not part of that uni -party. There's less than two percent. I'll say a Matt Gaetz is one of those, right? I'll say a Byron Donalds is probably one of those, right? Those types of guys are the people that we need. Now, again, even with them, there's not enough of them, Mike. We need us, the voter, to take care of this. Go vote for Donald Trump and get rid of the con men. Get rid of the B .S., the Bidens, the Clintons, the Obamas. Get rid of them all. Go vote and take care of it. So it's easy to become just sort of a witness or a spectator to all of this, right? We all sit back and then at your kitchen table or as you're having a beer, having some chicken wings here in Buffalo anyway, maybe across the country, just not as good. You start talking about these things. And then to your point, Mike, people at election time think they need to just distance themselves from these things. They need a mental health break. They need to just they need to just watch and see what happens. Let's just see how the cards fall. Well, this house of cards that Joe Biden's administration and he has built, it's coming down, guys. I mean, it's burning like Maui right now. And it's just it just hasn't come to your doorstep yet. That's the problem. Until it hits your doorstep, you're not evacuating, right? You're not jumping into the ocean like these people in Maui have had to do. It's just a terrible tragedy there, which, by the way, Joe Biden doesn't have any time to comment on. By the way, let's not forget that, you know, actual disaster going on in California and Hawaii right now. But Joe Biden, baby, he's got to go ride his bike. He's got a vacation. So don't don't interrupt that. He's actually headed, I think, this week to Texas or something to can't find his way to Hawaii, though. God forbid he does that or God forbid he sends his vice president. Can't do that. How vile is that team that he has around them around him? I mean, they're the ones running the show. We know that. So it's just a it's such a corrupt and vile group to not say we got to get Joe out in front of the microphone for this. I mean, we've got to at least talk about the lives being lost, the federal assistance that we're going to provide, just something. Not a thing. And that's not Joe Biden. I mean, Joe Biden can't can't make sense of anything. And we know that. Like, that's clear. We know that. I mean, there's so much evidence now to say that I can say it without really saying, well, you never know. No, we know. But his team. Yeah. I mean, Dr. Jill, what are you saying, Joe? Maui's burning like it'll likely be thousands of people will have died on Maui because of fires and extreme wind and spreading of the wildfires. And he doesn't set a word. And you, Jill, don't have a you know, at any like no respect at all, no, no decency to tell your husband, get in front of a microphone, for God's sake, and say something about the people on Maui. They're U .S. citizens. But to your point earlier about voting, that's the problem. People get what I call election dementia. They completely forget how we got to the extreme, horrible, horrible conditions that we end up getting to. And then at election time, Mike, right about now, somehow the Democrats are going to come out and say, wow, look what's happening. Climate change is destroying island, beautiful islands like Maui. Crime is it's just it's taking over American cities. We can change that. We will help you. We will give. Right. We're Santa Claus. We will give. And then everybody votes for these people again. Yeah. And by the way, you know, Mike, to point of we will give the we will give costs everybody that actually works money. Right. So it sounds great in theory. Yeah. I said this to my mom was text me the other day about I forgot what it was. And I'm like, oh, you didn't know that money just grows on trees. Yeah. You just go over there. I'll just pick off that leave. It's money like that. That's what government treats everything like. And like we talk about all the time, we're both business owners. If I say to a company that I'm doing advertising with, you know, just give me give me five million. I'll take five million dollars advertising. No, no worries. Then they say, Mike, you got to pay for it. Well, what? That's not to pay. I thought I only had to pay ten thousand dollars. What do you mean I'd pay five? That's not a good deal for me. Yeah. What? Well, Mike, you signed a contract to pay us five million advertising. No, no, I didn't. OK. You know what I'll do? I'll just go ask all my clients for an extra five thousand dollars apiece and I'll pay my advertising. You can't do that in business, right? It's the business owner, the government, that if you're going to make deals, you've got to live with those deals and pay for them, right? Not expect everybody else to. What they do, Mike, as you always say, is they'll make these things up, right? And then they'll say, we've solved the problem. Crime? Yeah, we can't believe it's so bad either, but we have the solution. No, Kathy Hochul, you are the problem. You are not the solution. Joe Biden, no, you are not the solution. You are the problem. But Mike, to your point, the way they market it is that this, you know, we're here to save you. The problem is the saving comes from our pockets and the listener's pockets and the people that work pockets, the people that are retired that work their asses off pockets. And even then, Mike, they take all that money from us and it doesn't do a damn thing because they don't know what to do with it. Contracts. I mean, contracts involve people that have an intellect, right? You got to understand what contract are you stepping into. You've got to have integrity to follow through on the contract, right? The two sides agree to something. And you've got to then trust that each other will actually abide by the contract. Those qualities don't exist in many of these liberal progressive minds, intellect, integrity, trust. It's all about them. It's all about them. And then the problem is they will actually sign contracts and then think that it doesn't apply to them, even though they signed it. Right. So I think it's out the window now, like the idea of compromise and, you know, let's let's make agreements and all that. It's out the window. It's out the window. These people don't care. We see it every day. We see crime in cities and then we're told, let's not hold these people accountable. Let's let's let's deflect from the true reasons for these things. Let's hold guys like Trump accountable for actions that we can't even prove. But you know what? He has he has all the right in the world, Mike, to prove he's innocent. Right. That, according to Nancy Pelosi, this is upside down. And it won't turn right side up unless we get a guy like Trump, maybe just maybe we get a guy like Vivek Ramaswamy either side by side with Trump or somehow integrated within a Trump administration. And then maybe I have some hope, maybe some more optimism. And lastly, before we get to our pal Mark Polancarz, I do just want to say I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. And I mean this right. I don't care if you're a liberal, if you're independent or if you're conservative. If you think that this is the right way to do business in the United States, I say do business, not actual business, but you get what I'm saying? If this is what you think the right way is, then you need to go do some history on the Stalin regime, on Hitler's regime, on Benito Mussolini's regime. Do me a favor and go read about that. In those days, there were no such thing, Mike, as opposition, right? If you opposed, you got killed, right? And we're not killing Donald Trump yet, by the way. I'm going to say yet because I think that's next when all these sham four indictments don't work. That's where they're going next, right? So I hope Donald Trump has his taste testers. I hope Donald Trump has the secret service because I fear for that man's life and I pray for that man because I'm seriously concerned about it. This is dangerous. And if you are an American and you think this is the right way, there is something seriously wrong with you, right? Something said, you know, people could say, oh, Donald Trump said lock her up about Hillary. Okay. He did say that. Did he put his whole Department of Justice against Hillary Clinton like this? Did he do any of this? Because I don't think he did. No. Right. And some people wish he had done that. Right. I mean, a lot of us. Looking back, he probably should have. A lot of us say that might have been the only place he went wrong. He had a couple of years in power and he could have really slammed the door on all these accusations about Hillary Clinton and the bleach bidding of documents and the slamming and the smashing of cell phones and all that. He didn't do it. And we wish he would have. Would it have changed, turned the tide? I don't know. You know, we won't know. But after two years as a president, he kind of lost his ability to do it. I mean, he started to focus on America, which I'm glad he did. But I don't know. Well, I mean, we'll have to see how this one more indictment changes, turns the tide. Again, I think stalwart Trump supporters are not swaying. It's a matter of getting others to say, what on earth will it take for you to say this is a liberal, far, far leftist government that doesn't care about justice for all? Are you going to continue to align yourself with them or not? And time will tell. Let's talk a little bit about Erie County executive Mark Polancarz. Mark Polancarz has often been there at the forefront of cleanup, is what I'd say. One that comes to mind, Mike, was the winter storm and not adequately preparing and actually declaring an emergency. So I remember it like this, and this is just my recollection. We knew, we knew from the Midwest there were nasty, massive storms coming across the country, right? Ice storms, devastating winds like 70, 80 mile per hour winds. They were on their way. So we knew that the night before, let's say 10 o 'clock at night, 9 o 'clock at night the night before. And all through the night, we hear nothing. We hear nothing. We hear nothing. People get on the roads at 7, 730, 8 o 'clock in the morning, and then all hell broke loose. The snow was flying, it was blizzard, blizzard conditions, somewhat like the 1977 blizzard of western New York, of Buffalo. And everybody that was out on the roads was at peril. Many of them got stuck in vehicles. They ended up trying to leave their vehicles, and many, many actually died. And what did we hear afterward? We heard Mark Polancarz say, wow, this was just a devastating storm. Wow, we're going to try and get out there and save as many people as possible, right? We need to do all the right things. He came out, but he made a grave error by not pronouncing closing the throughway at 11 p .m. the night before, right? Or 10 p .m. the night before. Get off the throughways. Get off the roads. You will not be able to report to work, right? Government officials and everybody, right? They all love to do mandates, Mike. Why wouldn't he make a mandate then? So anyway, he's always at the forefront of the cleanup efforts. And he does the apology tour or the, you know, I'm not that bad. Come on, this went wrong, but I'm not that bad. What did he say of late? So this was sent to me actually by Stefan Mihaylo. Here we go. This is a Facebook post, folks. Now this is, mind you, a week after two people were raped, right? One person has tuberculosis in the area. All legal, by the way, shouldn't be here, okay? This is what he says. While the last few days haven't been the best I've had in office, I think back to everything this community has gone through since 2020. The COVID pandemic, the mass shooting, terrible storms, and the Christmas blizzard, the Damar Hamlin incident, Jason Arno's tragic death, and so much more. And know that a few political hits and rough days against me are nothing in the grand scheme of things, especially compared to what others have had to face. My team and I will come out stronger as we continue to work to create a better future for all. So as you can tell, Mike and I are a little hot today between the Trump indictment and this. Let me just say one thing. I'll turn this over to you, Mike.
Kyle Seraphin: Hesitant to Say FBI Could Be Reformed Post-Election
"Kyle, I got to heart out in about 40 seconds, but just quickly, if we were to change leadership at the FBI with a new incoming Republican president that's serious about it, can the agency be reformed? I still don't think so, but if they were going to do it, you've got it all the way down to the first line managers and every single person there should be reinterviewing for their job. Is your agency loyal? Are you loyal to the agency of the FBI or to the Constitution? And a lot of people said yes when they should have said no. And so we already know that there's a track record of failure. So I don't know, do you reeducate everybody or you start fresh? I'd just scrap it. That's what I would do. Yeah. You know what? I tell you your opinion more than just about anyone in the law enforcement space. And I wasn't there. I mean, I know the culture of the Secret Service haven't been there. I don't know the FBI culture. And it really, as it bothers you, it bothers me
Kyle Seraphin: Trump Is Being Isolated Legally & Politically
"That in America. is. Did you guys in the bureau have the same thing we did in the Secret Service? We called them I don't know what you guys call them. I think we talked about this in our initial interview. But yep, there's 100%. Yeah, there's definitely that. Right. We had go bys like if you're going to do security at an airport that's been done before go hey, there's a go by on that. So you call them ponies. So the reason I bring that up is because again you being an experienced criminal investigator if there's no pony or go by for this you don't start inventing unique legal theories and putting ridiculous things in because you know there's no precedent you're going to be made to look like a fool. But Smith doesn't seem to care Kyle. This case is ridiculous. It is so clear to me that they are trying to isolate Trump legally and politically going after his lawyers again without precedent going after the maintenance people of Mar -a -Lago going after his Twitter account to see who logged in so they can cut him off from and scare anyone else out from logging in and sending out a message on his social media the media account. They are trying to isolate this guy. This is not a serious criminal prosecution. It's a persecution. I 100 % agree with you, but that doesn't make the consequences of it not serious. are They just not serious people that are involved in it. They are clown -like and yet the possibility of it actually going to fruition because we've seen people go to jail for memes in this country under the Biden administration. We saw Douglas Mackie go to jail for literally he stuff put out on Twitter. So we've got to this point where we've accepted such an insane proposition that this is all going on and that it might be on the up and up. And you know 50 % of the country really wants to be because they despise the guy. And that's the saddest thing is that most people would look at it in a fair eye and go look okay one indictment maybe two like we're going to do multiple indictments in multiple states and federal. And that's what this guy's like. Is he there are people that have raped little children and they are out after 90 days or 180 days. And you've got Donald Trump who's being
Kyle Seraphin: 'Absurd' to Suggest Trump Is a Flight Risk
"Right? I'm good. How are you doing, Dan? Good. So I needed you today as I need you to clear some things for me. Let's get to this first. You have a lot more criminal experience than I do. We have this kind of dual mission thing in the Secret Service. So we split our time of protection. You guys are really the experts in this. FBI The does it as well as anyone. Good agents. And there are some really good people there, right? So this filing against Donald Trump where they're trying to get a hold. They subpoenaed his Twitter records. Clearly the metadata, his tweets are public. They're not looking for the tweets. That's really obvious. Looking for the metadata who signed into his account. They wanted to hide it, Kyle. So in the court filing, unbelievably, they put in there that Donald Trump was a flight risk. Now, given that you've worked probably been associated with the thousands of criminal cases, right? Have you ever heard of something so ridiculous that must have clearly passed through at least four or five minutes of the case? Well, let me just contrast it because I think we can always do this. We're living in this world where there's basically dual systems of justice. We've got two tiers and it's not really like the elite versus everybody else. It's like political political bias. So look at Charlie McGonigal, right? He was an FBI S .A .C. who was taking money overseas. from You know, Donald Trump does have his own plane. So there's that. But this guy apparently was like taking cash and probably took a lot more than they think he did. And he was dealing with Russian oligarchs and he's out walking around. But they think that maybe Donald Trump because it's absurd on his face. I mean, he's a public figure running for office in the United States of America. And flying he's around all these places. He publishes his schedule where he's going so that media can show up and be there. But maybe the FBI won't be able to keep with up it. It's just silliness. It's really sad because it's so disingenuous. It just shows you how badly they want to go out and get the guy. And that, to me, is the banana republic thing.

IRS Whistleblower: There's More to Say About Hunter Biden
"Stuff is happening now there's Donald Trump you can see him they got the cameras on him now headed over to court for the third time this is the guy who exposed the in the White House now and everybody exposing this guy is being ruthlessly and Jim endlessly attacked cue that up for me if you would cut for you need more evidence we're living in a police say now the Cubans and North Koreans are taking notes here's an IRS whistleblower a decorated special agent with no history of issues an 1811 GS 1811 criminal investigator federal agent saying that there are other whistleblowers out there who have even more information about this special treatment the rotting bag of oatmeal on the White House's kid hunter got from the IRS but they can't talk because our department of hilariously C title justice it's the Department of injustice that they're into that they're intimidating the whistleblowers or again the Cubans are taking notes on this now the like my gosh these guys are good at what they're doing here yourself listen they need to talk to all these people they can't just allow DOJ to not give access to to people I mean for example the FBI has to say that they testified for House Ways and Means Committee he was he was given a letter the Sunday before from DOJ basically telling want him not to talk and you know I know that he could've confirmed all facts material on this investigation and I know he did confirm that the the FBI headquarters in order to find a transition team and Secret Service but really that was the only thing that he was able to speak about so there are there are so many other people and we've provided that the House Ways and Means Committee and we just hope that they follow follow the leads and talk to the people they need to talk to to get to the bottom of it
Dan Bongino: Hunter Biden Is Not a Private Citizen
"The Dan Bongino show. Hey, one more thing about the Hunter Biden thing to say I do want to describe to you something very important about the Jack Prosecution or persecution of Trump and the protection racket for Obama, but one talking point the left keeps throwing out there. You need to immediately Chuck out the window and burn is this idea that Hunter Biden is a taxpayer funded United States Secret Service protect the. If Hunter Biden wants to be a private citizen, I have two suggestions and to be treated like one. Don't do business with your dad with the Chinese Communist Party laundering millions of dollars to multiple accounts as multiple allegations suggests for multiple business partners and give up your Secret Service detail and go get your own protection. You're not a private citizen. You're nothing close to a private citizen. You don't even need basic criteria for a private citizen. But back to Jack Smith, you're missing the point if you think Jack Smith is going after Trump for Trump, Jack Smith is going after Trump to provide protection and political cover for Obama and Biden. That is what he's doing. He is pushing this case out farther and farther into next year to interfere with the election and hopefully get a 14th Amendment designation to pull Trump off the ballot. But there's no political will to do that right now. Jack Smith needs to throw the kitchen sink at this guy.
Turning Point's ActCon Winners and Losers Revealed
"Have a lot to go through today and to cover the first topic. We were all at Turning Point Action Conference Act Con. Andrew, I want you to kick it off. You handle all the PR media do a great job. You've been to dozens of these events. I think this is an event unlike any other, certainly at its challenges in some ways, but it's blessings for sure. Andrew, Act Con, your reaction, winners, losers, people who ended up in the middle. Andrew Colvet. Yeah, no, this was I think, Charlie, you would agree of all the events that we've executed on. This was probably right up there with the top two most challenging. The other one being 2020 at the same venue, at the same venue during COVID. And we reluctantly returned to this venue thinking that maybe that was just a COVID era thing. But listen, there was some line issues that the Secret Service didn't help with. But I really don't want to focus on any of that. I mean, it was there. We did a great job, I think, dealing with it live in real time. But I will tell you that the biggest winner is Donald Trump from Act Con, there's no doubt. But the second biggest winner is Vivek Ramaswamy, who won basically the second choice vote in the straw poll, which I think surprised a lot of people. That was a massive, massive deal. The electricity in the crowd, I mean, if you go through social media and you look at it, there's no other event in the conservative landscape like the events that Turning Point's off. I mean, the welcome for Trump, the welcome for Vivek, Bonjino, Bannon, Marjorie Taylor Green, Boebert, Gaetz, Hawley, J .D. Vance, Senator Cruz. I mean, there's really nothing like it. The lineup is beyond the pale. And then, hey, listen, the big loser here is Governor Ron DeSantis. I'm a Governor Ron DeSantis fan. I've been really open about that. We are behind Trump in 2024, but we certainly are not in the business of trashing Governor Ron DeSantis or getting in the mud. Some people are. There's a whole thing going on on social media that you guys, I'm sure, are very well aware of. But listen, we like the governor. We have a lot of respect for what he's done in Florida. But I will tell you, a lot of people say that this was a setup. We were just trying to get Governor Ron DeSantis there so he would get food and heckled. That is a complete and utter lie.

"I mean, I have to go back and rank, but I mean, when I ranked the bomb movies, our mattress Secret Service was around tenth, 11th, 12th, out of 25. Okay. I'm out of hand license to kill a little bit higher. Honestly, I would have to go through and rewatch all of them in a very short amount of time to give a valid rank. Yeah. It's hard to say. But I would rank this above spy who loved me. Yes. And I think I did. I have to go back and check and see, but I think I did. But yeah, for booze, we are drinking shampoo, brute. Shampoo. This is a French bubbly. It's not champagne. And we have drank this before. It's been a couple of years. On the podcast, it's always great to go back. It's a good 25 or so dollar bubbling. So I like it because it's not like it's not super dry. Yeah. It's brute, but it's not like it's not going to feel sharp when you drink it. This one's kind of a soft, not quite buttery, but kind of creamy. Yeah. It really is. It has a nice creamy minerality to it. And yeah, it's a vive race with shin and blanc. That's the name of your grape for this one. And because it's not champagne, you can get a bottle, pretty reasonable. Bond drinks a lot of bubbly throughout the movies. Most of the bubbles that he drinks are going to be extremely expensive. Yeah, he drinks a lot of DOM perignon 52, 57, pretty much any time you see any year on a bubbly, it's going to be triple digits and price. Yeah. Most bubbles are not in a year at all. They're non vintage. Right. So it'll be a combination of multiple years. So anytime the best of the best years for bubbly will get a vintage. And so, I mean, like 1996, there was a tremendous year for champagne.

"Leonard Maltin gave this one of the highest ratings of the entire series. Instead of Connery had been bond in this one, it would have been easily the best of all Bond movies. So it's definitely how to reappraisal. So is that what brought Bond back? Or Connery? Is that what brought Connery back? I think they were alarmed that it grows half of what the previous film did. And so I think the studio was like git Connery back. Especially once lazy quit, I think that was the answer to the prayers. Because they still offered him even after they finished this, a 7 movie contract. And I thought, since then, it's 7 movies. 7 movies. Yikes. And he said, no. And I've often thought like Roger Moore had to grow into it. I think most bonds have to take some couple of movies to really make it their own. And I also think it takes the writers a couple of movies to figure out the new actor. Yeah. And kind of fit it for him. And so it's no mistake you look at most of bonds. They're second or third movie. A lot of times is really good. You look at Connery with the goal finger and more of a spy who love me. And looking at the end of Craig with Skyfall, in fact, they kind of figure out the new bond. I don't know man. I think Casino Royale is probably my favorite. Daniel Craig, maybe my favorite Bond movie. And it was good because it was like, I think that was, I don't want to say it was luck, but that was the perfect confluence of like they cast a perfect guy for that script. Yeah, to fit the new vibe. They cast somebody totally different in the script fit him perfectly. But my favorite of the Daniel craigs is Skyfall. I like that one. I did like Skyfall. Pierce Brosnan's first. Golden eye is golden. I love Goldman. Don't hides great. It's a great one. And I would say that world is not enough would have been very good if it hadn't cast a nice Richard to the female deed. She absolutely wrecks the movie. It's not a terrible movie other than that. But this does check a lot of the bond boxes really well. Diana Rigg is a great Bond girl. She is great performance. She's a real professional actress. I mean, I hate to say they tended to cast models.

"Where do they go? Where do they come from? They have this whole grand scheme of creating sleeper agents throughout the country. And their solution to bond is just drive by shooting and it's just the two of them. No henchmen. The two of them. It's like rocking bowling buildings. Feels like rocky and bullwinkle, right? I was all on board with this until that ending and I was like, that's weird way to end it. And spoiler alert, that's how the book ends. I fully believe it. It feels like a bookending. It feels like a writer was just like, I don't like anything like that. I'm just gonna, there's a drive by shooting. There it is. And it was meant to be it to be continued. Right. And so if lazy had continued, diamonds are forever, the plot would have been him. On revenge, against blofeld. And killing gloves. Well, and in the spy who loved me, they even make an homage back to it, where she's reading the dossier on Bond back to him, and she's like, once married, and that's when he cuts her off. No. That becomes official canon at that point. Yeah. You'll see that again. When we do license to kill, where the plot of that movie is his buddy Felix ladder gets married. And his wife, yeah. His wife, new wife, wants to set up bond with somebody. And I think she throws him the garter or whatever. And he catches it in. You know, she's like, that means you're getting married next, and he gives it back to her and says, no thanks. I don't want it. So then LIDAR says, yeah, he was married before. That becomes like, even in the Pierce Brosnan movies, I think they make a reference to it. It officially becomes part of the character, is that he's a widow. Now, which is weird because every time a new actor kind of comes on, I always feel like they're sort of revamping the character. Control all delete.

"Sink or swim. So many good lines. It could have had lines. Not as many one liners. Yeah. I will say that the plot of him getting to go to this Swiss harem of sneezy bitches with allergies, you know? And he just gets to sneak around. That's the clinical name of it. Sneezy bitches? That's an album name. It's sneezy bitches without a jam band. Yeah, concept album. Yeah. He just has this like, he just happens into this harem. And again, the skiing. We talked about this with the Roger Moore movies. The amount of skiing and Bond movies is, is it like a, is it a European? It's a fetish. It's just like a weird trope in Bond movie. Fetishistic. Yeah, it's like, I mean, it's like what? You've heard Kevin Smith doing his Superman thing where it's like the producer like we want mechanical spiders in the third act. You got to wonder if these producers are like, I got to see him skiing. There's no skiing. Get some skiing in here and quickly. Don't you know how sexy skiing is? Yeah. I want lazenby in a tight ski suit. The chicks that are allergic to chicken, that's great. We need some skiing. Yeah, I mean, that's why it's fine with lipstick. That's then he needs to get some stuff on to go ski. Good thing that she had like an easy number that was like 8. And now remember that was like four one two. Start really figuring out our spacing. That would look suspicious. One letter just writing and lipstick on his thigh. I'm in room 23 one O 9. You know she pulled that lipstick back up and had hair all over it. There was no way that immediately goes back to applying it. It's like you got a fire pube on your lip there, lady. You know, she pulled up some steel wool. I will say the actor who played blofeld was also pretty good. Tell us about it. It was the most blofeld we get to see. I think in a movie, is it getting to see this much of them? The most charismatic blow film. Yeah, for sure. Donald pleasant is kind of played him a little bit like kind of do I was a doctor Loomis like Halloween kind of thing. Yeah, I kind of like a keep playing real character. Being creepy and I lift a bond. I'm petting a cat.

"This one is the closest, most faithful adaptation to the book of any bomb movie. Really? Okay. They actually had an annotated copy of the book on set at all times to help stay closer to it. Which isn't always a good thing. I mean, I know that was like when a Stephen King's biggest issues with The Shining was that it wasn't super close to the book. And so he actually made his own miniseries that was more close to the book and everyone was just like, this kind of sucks. Why'd you remake The Shining? Yeah. I mean, if you take a string on a glass of film school, first thing you need to tell you is if you get tired. If you get hard to ride to adapt a novel, don't just write the novel. Yeah. Some stuff just doesn't play well. And that applies to everything. If it's Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and you're not going to please the fans anyway. Well, and honestly, I thought this story was good. I thought it was a good story. It didn't feel like it was like overly clunky, like it felt like a Bond movie. Had the most story story. Yeah, like a bomb movie. Yeah. I had a lot more depth, a lot more motion to it. Especially towards the end. And yeah, almost everything from it, all the characters, everything, even the ending, which polarized fans. Was taken from the book. So the book is the same way. We'll get to the end of it. Yeah, I thought. Yeah. The plot is pretty basic. It does mirror the previous you only live twice. It has Bond search for Ernst stavro blow film. It does create a continuity error in this movie because he met blofeld in the last movie. Right. And in this one, he doesn't recognize him. So they were going to cover that by saying when a bond had plastic surgery so it could go undercover. That's how they're going to explain the fact that he's a different actor. Right. But that was taken out of the script. Well, there's the great self referential line at the very beginning of the movie where the female lead runs off and he looks at the camera and he goes, this never happened to the last guy. Yeah, a nice little a nod to the fact that. Yeah, and then the Bond song started. Great monster. We'll get to that too, but great soundtrack. Yep, this is my favorite score. Who did this bond song? This was John Barry. So who did most of the most of the bonds all the way up to Timothy Dalton? He did.

It's me and Sean Jordan would do a little mini pod on her majesty's Secret Service. George lazenby's one off Bond film. Is this the only Bond actor to have one? In the official canon? Yep. Okay. So this lazenby's book ended by Sean Connery. So he's John Connery lazenby Sean Connery. By like three movies on either side, give or take? Connery did 5. 5 then one, then that was it. And then he came back and did never say never, which was a whole different studio. Producers, everything else. Okay. So yeah, this was his one shot. He was offered multi picture deal, turned it down. On the advice of his agent, who I hope he strangled after that. That was a choice. Yeah. Oh, that's the sound of my disposal. I don't know if you can hear that. It's lovely. I forgot that dishwashers on. Anyway, so yes, this was released on December 19th, 1969. During the production of you only live twice, the previous film, Connery. The production former producers that he was done. He was tired of the publicity, he was tired of the pressure. I think he was worried about getting typecast forever as Bond and not being able to get any other serious roles. So he said he was leaving. And so huge search was conducted to replace him. Is that because Bond was sort of like a became a bit of a comedic? Not comedic, but maybe kind of farcical role. I read one critic could basically said that it was the curse of being so successful and a lot of big franchises have this where so many imitators pop up that even the original film feels like an invitation. Yeah. It loses all of its value. Then you feel that when you go back and rewatch these. It's like, okay, I've seen this trope a million times. Because you had like get smart man from uncle, like all these different spy movies, spy spoofs out there, so it devalued, Bond. I think even the last time we podcast, we mixed up a couple different bonds booths. We mixed up spy hard and what else? Oh, there's tons of awesome hours. Naked gun? I think it was a spy hard Nike on the next step. So he left. And George lazenby was cast. They looked at Roger Moore, who couldn't get out of his TV contract for the saint.

Nobody made a Molly compatible bear spray holster. It made those, and with mystery ranch here in town, you know, all my hunting buddies were mystery ranch packs with Molly on the waist belt and everybody was just zip tying their bear spray holster to the side of it. Those kind of took off on me that was kind of the first thing I got mass produced and I still joke that I think I had 300 of them made the first time and was sick to my stomach, I had no idea how I was going to sell that many holsters. But quickly ran out and had to restock. I started making the hand muffs not long after that and was selling those to S.W.A.T. teams and military small military units.

"I mean how cheeky to me. It's not this code-named thing. I think they play up the bond history in the title sequence which we'll talk about a second later in the movie with the quips with moneypenny. And his removal of souvenirs from his earlier missions. This is telling us we have a new bond actor. Not a new agent playing the role of james bond. Or the code named james bond. Here they flat out say it. Yeah and i for an actor. I just absolutely love it. I agree and the title sequence eliminates that concept that this is just a codename as it seems to be reflective and a delivered connection to the previous five james bond movies in the title sequence. We clearly see cuts from dr no honey writer on the beach dr. No himself then from russia with love. We see tatiana on the train then goldfinger and pussy galore in the martini glass and then the glass looks like it becomes a wine glass and we see goldfinger himself then domino from thunderball with the great musical score of john berry and then we see it's not a wine glass but an hourglass as it expands back and we see the time is flowing time has passing. The images are flowing. From the top down just like sand in an hourglass. It's a great great concept and now we see largo from thunderball. Then we see kissy as well as several other scenes from you only live twice so our history lesson is complete. This is the same james bond despite the funny line and this is born out even more strongly later in the movie when bond was designed for my six and is going through artifacts in his desk. Like tom mentioned funny. Writers knife the garrett watch from his mission in from russia with love to breathe a breather from thunderball. And so on so. The hourglass is proof. But you'll notice in the title sequence a large clock face with the hands. running one shot shows. Looks like ban hanging on the minute. Hand going backwards from about eleven to seven again telling us this is the same. James bond as the missions are all connected backwards history to him consistent with our experience then again. Right towards the end of the title sequence. The clock hands again are moving in rivers counterclockwise. Show that's an interesting. Take on that. Because i haven't hadn't thought about the hands moving backwards 'cause because for me. When i saw this i thought it might have been a tip of the hat to the nineteen. Twenty-three movie safety last where harold hangs from this clock with the minute hand and he goes backwards just due to his weight and holding onto this thing he happened to be. You know the hand happened to be on the left side of twelve twelve so the weight would pull it down to that side so to me or just thought it was a tip of the hat to safety last not too as you were talking about back in time which i actually think probably makes more sense. Yeah yeah. I think it's a clever clever way of doing telling us that this is all connected guys. Don't worry about it. No no one other comment about the title sequence here. Maurice been to really ratchet up the nudity at least the nipple count title sequence the previous title sequences were much less nipple. Now that i've said this when you watch this title sequence you'll never watch it again. Without thinking of those words. I mean it kind of holds because i mean later in the movie we see the first female characters nipple in the series when ruby is embedding gloria so to all of us who has teenagers enjoyed the nip slips and james bond. You can think maurice bender for starting at here in on her majesty's secret service. It's good stuff..

Yeah as they're trying to figure out the name kind of thing which is kind of like reminds me a doctor's note with the entertaining interchange between sylvia trench and bond.

He supposedly the guy who bungee jumps from the dam. We see his face for the first time when he's laser trying to cut the metal and then didn't daniel craig gets introduced. It's another quick flashback. But there's no slow reveal here. I really like the slow reveal and it was initially added dr no after they got the idea from the nineteen thirty. Nine movie juarez. I put that back in when they introduced the next bond. Whoever it's going to be after if it ever releases time yeah me too. I love the concept. It's great concept. Slow via tackler could empathize seventeen on my the boundary. One locked youtube channel. Take a look at george. Lazenby spawned in more debt. Now i have one other challenge of the slow reveal. Because i really like it but after they put sean connery into the gun barrel replacing bob simmons the gun barrel seeing you now see who the bond is so..

Decline in ad revenue and competition from new mass media forms like podcasts, But this is not a new argument. By the way, take you back way back. May of 2011. This is almost 10 years ago now. Host name sink. Ugur, who was the host for the young Turks and for MSNBC at the time predicted the death of conservative talk radio was right around the corner again. This is from nearly 10 years ago, when he made this statement all this invincible conservative talk radio was a Maraj. Okay. It was just based on lies and terrible way of recording ratings sank. Iger just almost 10 years ago, making that prediction And here's how he justifies that prediction. 10 years ago, Rush Limbaugh is having some trouble with his ratings, for example, as John Avlon points out in the daily Beast. In Charlotte, North Carolina, has dropped from 6 to 12 in Oregon has dropped from fourth to eighth. He's dropped in San Francisco. He's dropping all over the place. In fact, conservative talk is doing so poorly that the first station who carried conservative talk full time K B I in Seattle. Has dropped the format entirely. They've gone back to music former MSNBC host predicting some 10 years ago, Conservative talk was about to die Well. Here are the most recent rating. The new numbers. Rush Limbaugh, 15.5 million listeners. Sean Hannity, 15 million listeners. Dave Ramsey, 14 Million Mark 11 11 Million Glenn Back 10.5 million. Four of the Top five are conservative talk show that probably was driven in large part also by the President Trump's election. Former President Trump in that whole campaign leader. Now on the other side of The Washington Post article is Hugh Hewitt, he says, not only his conservative talk radio still alive and well, he says, its future is very bright. He is with Hillsdale College. They are conservative institution of higher learning. And here's what he said. This was a speech you gave back in 2015 1st. It was Russian talk later that it was The Fox News channel, and then the conservative blogger Sphere came up. 1989. There was the national Review. There was the American Spectator and a few very high and publications that people could enjoy if they have money and leisure, but it was still by mail in the Pony Express. Afterwards, everything began to flood the zone. So we're winning because of that transition, and if we keep turning out Craftsman. Like John and you are turning out here. We're gonna win. Because we have the added benefit to quote Kissinger of it being true. We're on the right side, and that's why we dominate and we won because it was right. That's why we're gonna win the next generation. So when we saw that Washington Post article yesterday caught our eyes. They really is it really dying, and then it just harken back to the line from. I think it was Mark Twain Reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated. I think you know, conservative talk radio isn't dying, but neither is progressive programming. I think we're just becoming more siloed. Well in podcasts are just all the rage right on me. And then you look at the television landscape You've got away in on Newsmax. And now something new called Aisa. Gloria s. Oh, there are a lot of siloed places to get news, which you know, some people say it's not such a great thing. Well, we shouldn't be siloed. We should Be open to all ideas. I guess so. But anyway, the debate is out there and not any one particular political forums going away anytime soon. No, it is 8. 50 is the time. Let's get out and check on the traffic..

"Have been living at. I don't blame him for living in a nice place. I mean, there. They're you know, they're billionaires or whatever they're rich. They? They moved into a place and there was no place for the secret Service agents to go to the bathroom. Well, there was they had. I think I think I counted five bathrooms, right? Well, I was gonna get to that. Indeed. You're right. Bread is indeed right to point it out immediately. They have six bathrooms. In fact, not just five got they would be down to five if they dedicated one to the secret Service agents, sir, so they have half a dozen bathrooms inside their home. And the Secret Service detail. Asked if they could use one of the bathrooms for the secret Service agents who, as I say, are dedicated to that detail 24 hours a day. And they were told. No, you can't. Find a different place to go to the bathroom. So that's what the secret Service did. And when I say the secret Service, they're doing it on our dime, right? We're paying for it. And so they did. Have a porta potty. Uh, set up for a while, but it was just too gross. I mean, these guys are there in there, You know, you know what? The Secret Service agency They got all that gear and stuff they can't cram it into so They have now and it's been revealed. They have now revealed that they had to rent. A condo. Nearby. Isn't that what happened? Right right. They had to rent the basement of a studio from a neighbor in order to use the bathroom $3000 a month. It cost more than $100,000 so far. A White House spokesperson denied that Trump and Kushner restricted the agents. No, no, no, I'm sure they just wanted to go to the bathroom in a basement close by instead of the home. That contained the people they were protecting. Uh, So we spent over $100,000 to protect Ivanka and Jared simply because they denied Secret service personnel access to their home. It's been happening, apparently since the September of 2017. Mm. That is your swamp sweep. I also in kind of a kissing cousin of the Swamp sweep, Sir, I'll mention that A bunch of people who were critical of the vaccine. Either anti vaxxers or Their whole group of them. Wealthy lawyers, politicians, political lobbyists. They are getting a paycheck protection aid. They got it. They got 1.1 million in it so very thing that they're against which is the vaccine, which is to fight covert 19. They are grifting the system for 1.1 million paycheck protection. Now give you more on that. It just seems like an odd marriage of groups that are against it. Now get it. Mark Thompson, kgo 8 10. An emotional farewell to President elect Joe Biden and Delaware today is he and vice President.

"Course, a few days ahead of the inauguration. It is striking. There's been a lot of comparisons to the Green zone that was established secure zone established in Baghdad at the beginning of the Iraq war, and the some of those parallels seemed fitting. Some of the images are so striking here we are in an American City, American capital city and street upon ST upon Street is blocked off by National Guard. Heavily armed vehicles. Roads closed everywhere, making it impossible nearly to get around Washington but also saying the stage for what we're going to see here in this city this week, and the report of my colleagues at the AP is particularly chilling. The idea of looking at in potential inside job, the FBI vetting National Guardsmen, and that goes with what the Secret Service has been briefing the Biden campaign in recent days that one of their real concerns now would be this influx of out of state National Guardsmen or other law enforcement agencies. Local police worried that there could be AH threat posed from within, and they have been leaning on the Bible camp in recent days to really consider, let's be Clear. A secret service always looks for the most safe, cautious approach. They're going to present the kiddie principle in this case by the president elect a variety of options, But there's certainly been growing intensity, particularly last 72. 96 hours, fears that something could happen. Of course, we'd been on high alert. Since the Capitol attack. There's been a new wave of threat. That threat index has really picked up here in the last couple of days, and they are urging. The president elect to really consider moving something indoors for a more secure facility to this point biting his team are saying no, there's gonna incredible security lockdown, incredible presence, And obviously, this inauguration is gonna look different anyway. Because the pandemic we're not going to see hundreds of thousands of people here. There's there are certainly some visitors inauguration moving around Washington right now, but it's obvious, much smaller group. Unusual because buying this whole people Americans watches at home celebrated home. It's just not safe because of the pandemic. But now, of course, there's security concerns from fellow Americans, which is such a hard thing to even get our heads around here as we move to look for transfer power, but for allowed.

"Of what That's about half Of his Online remarks, which I'll post again to my Twitter feed. I think that is a a stark and real take. On what we've just seen and what we're seeing in America right now. I'm so glad you played that. Uh, There are a lot of calls here. I know, Albert. I know. I know. I got stories from the sky, but I just wanted to go around. I want to put a button on this. A lot of people agree with me. So of course I want to talk about that. But no, I people want agree about pence. Remember? I was saying that pence has no no stake in this. You think that Pence has to do this and he'll do the right thing. He has no stake in this and many are saying on again. These were all texture and leaving 15 80 88 10 that Fences scared he's scared for his life. And In the 650. Shout out to the 650. He should be scared. Hence, there's only six months protection is BP. Now, just because of that. I want to mention this. One of the things that's most troubling and has been most troubling about this administration. To me from the very beginning is the way in which Donald Trump and his henchman have funneled money into trump businesses from the very beginning. As you know, some of this has come from foreign powers. But I'm talking about domestic money, your money, my money. Okay. The Secret Service and other administration officials were forced to stay at Trump property sometimes reports toe by out entire floors of hotels because the secret Service needs to make sure that there is room there. Well, that will continue. If you don't do something You at least enable Congress to pull some of that away, and that's one of the things that impeachment would do so if you're impeached and removed Again. You don't think it could happen? You don't have the votes in the Senate. I don't think for removal. But you would lose then that Open ended secret service protection and other egg of travel expenses to think your travel budget's a million dollars a year. And you can continue to funnel the truck. The secret Service money into your business is for the rest of your life. I didn't think about that. Wow. Tens of millions of dollars. Listen to my podcast with David Fahrenthold. Where I talk to him about Just this. All the money that is pouring into Trump business is just from the Secret Service. Anyway, I I see that imperative. But the one thing I would say, I don't think it's gonna happen because the Democrats I don't know if they've got this. Also, I think they would do want to move on. I think they want to get by the administration off to a clean start. I think the Democrats are in a tough spot to be perfectly honest. But you could you could draft something in Congress that would literally take away. That open ended budget from Donald Trump. You absolutely could. So if you really felt that was a threat, and you want to make a point. You could do that. I mean, you're not limited to the legislation that's already on the book. You can draft your own legislation. So but again that would have to pass but that wouldn't have to pass with two thirds. You understand? Now you have Control of Congress. You could pass legislation to reduce that open ended budget that Trump has post presidency. That should be considered. All right. I'll do a many stories from the sky when we continue Mark Thompson kgo 8 10 Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, but also you.

"As far as the surname actually. Babbitt? Yes. Is her name? She is Theirry Force veteran that served four tours to to serve and protect our country. So I'm grateful for that. I'm grateful for all the men and women in our armed forces that serve and protect us here to have freedom. But where I text you guys earlier is I was kind of upset. That she was shot. I felt that she It could have been avoided that she didn't need to be shot. I thought that there was a lot of security around at that time, and so I had seen the video of it, and I was kind of upset. I'm like, I'm mean. I just don't feel like she should have been shot. And I I wish that she wouldn't have gotten shot. I don't want anybody to lose their life. But I had to take back what I said to you guys because I saw the video and I saw who it was that shot her and I saw where the shot came from in the shot came Ursula from Secret Service. They were standing there in front of that door. Now there's unconfirmed reports because he has that been confirmed. It has it. Has it been confirmed of who they were protecting and who were behind that door. But It has been confirmed where the shot came from, Like I saw I actually had the video. You could see that it was a guy in a suit. I would assume maybe that secret service that they took that shot. Anyways, the reason why I'm taking back what I'm saying what I said before because I didn't think that she should have been shot is now I'm starting to see video and and still pictures there. Ursula. There were people inside of there with zip ties. Did you know that that zip ties like did you guys really have it? Now? I understand the protest. I understand things got out of hand. What were you guys planning on going in there? Keep kidnapping folks. Another one was 11 Molotov cocktails and then hot rifle. Yeah, the more the more that we talk about this right? The more than the more that we find out, the more we find out like I mean, I knew it was bad. But man the intention like you guys really were. Some of you guys are really gonna kidnap some people. Well, let's talk about a few more of those things that they brought. These domestic terrorists were wielding lead pipes. They were spraying tear gas. They were battering doors. They were breaking windows. There's scaling walls as you mention there were several explosive devices. On and several were also found near both of the party headquarters, which are just a short distance from the Capitol building. And I have had a chance to watch more of the videos as well. And I am surprised that there wasn't even more bloodshed. No one should be celebrating Ashley's death I don't want but but.
