"Its entirety and still run a to do and Brown communities. And it's something that you could do that would change the course of events for a significant part of the consumer base. The lawsuit currently before the Supreme Court over the CFPB's funding structure has the potential to upend every rule guidance and order the CFPB has ever issued tossing over a decade of consumer protection law out of the window. That's not just harmful for consumers. I think it's dangerous to the financial system. The CFPB doesn't just issue regulations. They also provide safe harbor provisions like the qualified mortgage rule which mortgage protects lenders from certain lawsuits. Mr. Scharf, Mr. Moynihan, Mr. Frazier, if you were to lose this safe harbor, would it make a difference? We did mortgage lending before this. We do it afterwards. I think it completely depends on the actual detail on the ruling. I'd like to know the specifics to draw a conclusion. The same as my colleagues, I'd need to understand the specifics more. Well, I'm saying if you would lose it, not if it's limited or if you would lose it totally, it seems to me pretty remarkable based on previous testimony of how important the safe harbor provisions would be to banks mortgage lending abilities, that you would suggest that it would have no effect whatsoever. We're already in the midst of an affordable housing crisis and eliminating the CFPB and such a rule would have a disastrous impact on the mortgage market and make it harder for families to buy a home. Finally, the number of physical bank branches in the US have been trending downward for some time. This has left more and more residents in so called banking deserts facing difficulties in carrying out basic financial tasks such as paying bills and depositing checks. A Philadelphia reserve report found that bank closures during the pandemic resulted in of the number banking deserts in the third district states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware rising from 48 to 63. I understand part of this is mobile and online banking, but there are many who do not have the abilities to do that. What are some ways that we can ensure communities continue to have access to basic banking services? Two things, Senator. I think if you look at the people who have big branch systems, we've maintained approximately 30 % of our branches. Mr. Sharf said earlier, it was same for us in LMI neighborhoods. But importantly, one of the things that's gone on and you mentioned is we're up to 97 % of our LMI customers use digital banking, which then is more convenient, more safe and reaches them where they are. And so we manage that carefully to make sure we cover every market and make the calculations. You can see that in the public statistics. But if you look at what we do as a group of institutions, we maintain that presence, but we've driven the digital and we've driven the types of accounts that are more appreciated. That's we're why bringing 2 million people into the banking system that were unbanked a few years ago. It's largely these larger banks are driven. I'd close by simply saying I would commend to all of you that you look at how your practices affect particularly minority communities, including on this issue. You have a disproportionate affect and there's something you can do about the largest growing parts of the American society that would be beneficial to you and beneficial to them. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Thanks, Senator Menendez. Senator Kennedy of Louisiana is recognized. Well. That's really good. Unlike some, I do not think you are crooks. In fact, you're all American companies and I'm and I'm proud of you. And I thank you for supporting the most sophisticated and powerful economy in all of human history and the jobs you create in doing it. Mr. Diamond. Since the last time the federal government raised your bank's capital requirements and Dodd -Frank and otherwise, have you had a depositor run on your bank? We have not. Have you failed a stress test? No. Have you ever reached a point where your liabilities were greater than your assets? Absolutely not. Well, unfortunately, we've had three banks this year that did go broke. You know them, signature Silicon Valley, First Republic. We've held the earnings. In my judgment, they went broke because their management did really stupid stuff. And because the FDIC and the regulators who were in charge of the keeping them from doing stupid stuff sat there like bumps on a log, sucking on their teeth, and watched them do stupid stuff. And, in many cases, had to turn to you to the FDIC. Now, in fairness to the FDIC, it may have been that the people in charge of watching those banks at the FDIC were too busy urinating off the top of a hotel, or abusing young women who went to work for the FDIC. The FDIC chairman told us recently, yes, he knew about it. It happened. But he wasn't the chairman yet, and didn't have the authority to stop it. Mr. Diamond, don't you find it ironic the FDIC is now turning to you and saying, you know our track record, which is blemished at the FDIC. Your bank isn't broken, but we're going to tell you how to fix it. Do you find that ironic? They're going to tell you how to fix it based on standards put together by bureaucrats in Basel, Switzerland, not by the United States Congress. Do you find it ironic that they're telling you this and proposing this? Isn't that kind of like being given gun safety advice by Alec Baldwin? Should I answer the question? So the major risk of those banks was hiding in plain sight, which is interest rate exposure that was known to most people who actually couldn't read a balance sheet and read their financial statements, and that's true. I also think the FDIC said they didn't know they were busy doing whatever else they were doing at their are more of carnal abuse over there. I also do think you're making a good point that some of these rules were put in place, and some folks have mentioned here are pushing business outside of the banking system, and to point out exactly what that is, it's almost 80 % of the mortgage business today. It's half of the leveraged lending business today, and it's a bunch of other things which people don't actually see the about plumbing of the system, and I do think it's any risk about transparency, and a very important thing about the Let me stop you Mr. Diamond, because I'm going to run out of time. How is this even legal under West Virginia V .E .P .A.? You have bank regulators without clear direction from Congress, who are barring standards from other regulators in Basel, Switzerland, imposing them on you without clear directive from Congress. It clearly falls under the major doctrine. questions Why doesn't this violate West Virginia V .E .P .E .P .A.? You don't have to know a law book from an L .L. Bean catalog to see that. Why doesn't it violate them all? Senator, Senator Kennedy's time has expired. Senator Warren from Virginia V .E .P .E. .E .P. .E .E I think we very much appreciate your points of view, Senator, on this topic, and I think many of us would concur, while violations of law we hope are things that we will as a last resort, we would be prepared to do so because it's important that there's clarity in the law and that we abide by it. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I find it's an interesting presentation, the yin and yang of whether you're the source of all challenges or the regulators are the source of all challenges. Somehow I don't believe either the presentation represents the truth, and my questions on Basel III have been raised already. I've indicated I think the timing at this moment is very problematic with interest rates as high as they are, and obviously members of the civil rights community have raised this as well. But before anybody smiles too much, I can also tell I you that get extraordinarily frustrated that any time there is any proposed new regulation or rule, the normal reaction is, oh my God, the sky is falling and the same response is always, you do this, it's going to limit access to capital on Main Street.

So we are very concerned that this some of the strengths and foundations of the unique American financial system. Thank you all. Thank you Mr. Chairman. Thank you Senator Tester. Senator Tillis of North Carolina. Thank you Mr. Chairman. Thank Thank you all for being here and for the preparation. I'm actually very pleased. I thought it was going to be the annual flogging of the GSIBs. People are asking very serious questions. I'm glad to hear it. I've got a few serious questions for you all. Number one, I want to start by saying that thank goodness you're not the head of a finance. Thank goodness you're not the head of an organization that's had an expose on a culture of sexual harassment and workplace hostility because I guess if you were every person up here would be asking for your resignation including me. But we've got a top financial regulator that gets a pass. I don't expect you to respond to that but it's true. That same financial regulator has implemented an SEC cyber reporting rule that now we have evidence that the ransomware companies are exploiting, right? Okay, this is a mandatory cyber reporting requirement that now a ransomware company has gone on record as reporting. I don't even want y 'all to respond to that but we've got detailed questions. We're going to ask you what impact this is. A four -day reporting requirement, a national security waiver that you have to reapply for every days 30 and it has to be approved by the attorney general. These people are out of control. We've got to try and repeal this but I'm actually putting forth my first CRA to try and do that next week. Hopefully the SEC can see that the bad guys exploiting are a rule creating a burden for our financial services industry and not producing a good result. That's all on that. I want to go back to the operational risk question. I think that Senator did Rounds a good job of saying this Basel III in -game is bad. It's not very well thought out and hopefully look it's going very to differently before it gets promulgated. Who would like to speak for this group around the impact on operational risk just one more time and how we think that they've missed it in terms of the benefit? Mr. Gorman, if you could in 30 seconds I would appreciate it. It makes no sense. I mean that's the bottom line. I've been at this for a long time. I served on the New York Fed board for years. I've seen a lot of rules. Some of make them sense and it's a question of how far you turn the dial. This doesn't make sense. You shouldn't punish institutions for creating fee -based businesses. Is there any evidence that work has been done to really understand the fully burdened costs and the impact of this rule on the industry and more importantly people like my dad who would get 90 -day notes to fund his construction job that I used to work on? Is there anything out there that I've in missed terms of the regulators actually doing an exhaustive study of the impact and the downstream implications? Are you aware of anything that I have just simply not read? I'm not aware. Okay, thank you. Mr. Solomon, would you go back to the, think I you mentioned SFT, security financial transactions. Can you go back and talk a little bit about why people in the pension business should be worried about the promulgation of this rule in about 30 seconds? Sure. Securities financing transactions are transactions where institutions like ours borrow stock securities from pensions. We pay them cash. They can then invest that cash and earn returns. The capital in Basel III attributed to those transactions goes up by eight times would make the transactions uneconomical for businesses like us so we would exit that business. That would then prevent the pensions from having that ability to increase their the returns through that activity. So anybody who is sitting on top of any sort of pension management should understand that if we implement it in its current form, their returns at least in this segment are likely to go down. They are an end user that be would impacted. Let's talk more about I actually have to get something off my chest because I've heard more, I'm kind of doing that, y 'all may have noticed, but I understand that you are gaming CCAR, that somehow that you can game stress testing. That's what I'm hearing from regulators, I'm hearing from my colleagues on the other side. Give me an idea of how you game the system. I actually thought that this is a regimen that's provided by a supervisor or an examiner and you've got to execute it and then they have to measure it. Is that how it works? Any of you here want to share with me how you game the system? I used to work at Price Waterhouse. We didn't have a practice on gaming CCAR or stress testing at the time. Have you all cracked that code? How many of you all think it's absurd to think that people would actually assert that you could game a stress test? Okay. How many of you think that you're spending more time and money on trying to stress satisfy test requirements at the expense of looking at real risks that are unique to your banking activities? I'll take this one. Okay, Jim. The CCAR test is 200 ,000 pages long. of us do 10, Most 20, 30, 40, 50 tests a week. We're quite worried about risk. It's one test. It's to the nth degree. It's a big black box. So we all agree in stress testing. That thing is just out of control. Yeah. And in closing, look, Silicon Valley was a disaster. It was a fingerprint. It was unique in terms of their activities. It was a failure supervision, of in my opinion. And one thing I hope that we have over the next is year a hearing on everybody who was in the loop who failed to protect the investors and the investors in Silicon Valley. Thank you, Mr. Chair. Thank you, Senator Schulze. Senator Menendez of New Jersey is recognized. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. For over over a decade, the CFPB has stood up for everyday Americans and fought back against abusive and all you do. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I don't know the number. Let me help you. 360 million. And same question? I don't know the number specifically. 819 million. Ms. Fraser? I don't know the number either, Senator. 1 billion. Mr. Sharf? I don't know the number, Senator. Well, it's over 2 billion. So from just the four of you, that's over 4 billion. It's amazing you don't know the number because they're not small in nature. Over $4 billion returned to hardworking consumers in the past dozen years. And yet this critical agency is under constant attack by my Republican colleagues. The lawsuit before the Supreme is threatening its very existence. And time and time again we've seen why the CFBP is so necessary and why I intend to continue to fight for it. Otherwise, that would have been $4 billion out of the pockets as consumers. Now, while some banks have either decreased or eliminated overdraft fees altogether, in large part due to increased scrutiny and oversight, banks still collected an estimated $7 .7 billion in 2022 in overdraft and non -sufficient fund fees. Ms. Fraser, your bank eliminated overdraft fees last year, isn't that fair to say that Citi is still a profitable bank? Yes, Senator. Did overdraft fees upend your business model? No, Senator. We work hard to protect our customers and make sure that they don't fall into overdraft. Now, the rest of the banks here that have retail operations continue, to my knowledge, to charge overdraft fees. Mr. Moynihan, Mr. Diamond, Sharpe, Mr. you're all aware that black and Hispanic households disproportionately incur overdraft and NSF fees, correct? Do you know that, yes or no? Could you give me a verbal answer, please? I believe so. If that's your statistic, I don't have any reason to challenge it. Same for me. Well, the reality is that, again, it's amazing you don't know that. Study after study have shown that the answer is yes to that question. So, I suggest you call Ms. Fraser after this hearing to figure out how You can still be able to eliminate the fees in its entirety and still run a to do and Brown communities.

Fresh "Senator" from Bloomberg Markets
"I think, essentially, your banks collectively have made about $219 billion in profit this year, and I believe that your credit cards are not beyond 30 percent. So the 36 percent interest rate seems to be very appropriate, and so I can go down and start it with Mr. Scharf. Would you support a national 36 percent interest gap? Senator, I appreciate your thoughts on this one. I think we would be concerned about setting a flat number without really understanding what the impact could be in different inflationary environments. Mr. Moynihan. Senator, it's not really relevant to us. We don't engage in prime lending. I think, as Mr. Scharf said, it's a question of balance. What would it push outside the system? What would it make not available? And I think it's just not a relevant question for us because we don't have rates that high. Well, I guess in a general sense it's relevant because most of the people who use this adversely are payday lenders and rather dubious operators who will induce borrowers into arrangements which are you wouldn't even tolerate. So I think we've reached a point now after several years of questioning you all. I'm not picking on you, Mr. Moynihan, to come to a conclusion and I think the conclusion is it should. Mr. Dornan, please. Yeah, we don't engage in that. I completely agree with your intent. I think there should be a focus on payday lenders and check cashers and certain things like that. I just would look to help you design it so it covers the intent without any bad consequences. There are some people who make very small loans it who may stop them from doing that and actually push people into payday lending. Ms. Fraser, please. don't. Senator, thank you for the question. We applaud the intent of what you're trying to do. I think as large banks we're very mindful of our responsibilities in protecting are affecting our customers from abuses. Experience has shown that caps diminish access to credit can do in the systems and the Federal Reserve has a study to show that. So I think it's similar to my colleagues. We believe there are other ways to achieve the intent, but we'd is be supportive of following up with you on how. Senator, Senator, we don't engage in consumer lending but we do support what you're trying to achieve there. Thank you, sir. Mr. Vance. Senator, we're also not in the consumer business, but we support the intent. Thank you. This is Albert. We have a very, very small business in the consumer area but we support have the intent. Thank you. I support it, Senator, for normal, what I consider normal economic times, I actually came to this country and borrowed it 24%. are not quite your 36. I found that particularly heinous but it turned out okay. But But no, I think anybody who's forced to borrow 36 percent, that's sort of unforgivable. I was living in the United States when I was borrowing at 24%. In fact, I recall we had repealed Rhode Island Um, legislation because it was I Again, hope to work with you on this because I think it's important. And I don't think it'll cause the disruptions, which you might anticipate, think I it can be done. And I think the other thing it should be done, and I know you many of you are doing it, is to go out aggressively and start getting people banked. One of the reasons that they find themselves borrowing money from unscrupulous characters is because they have not been fully introduced to the banking system. Understand that it's relatively easy and it's much more appropriate than some of these other arrangements. But thank you all and we'll continue to work and any advice I'd appreciate it. Thanks for listening to some of the largest CEOs of banks in this country, Jamie Dimon, James Gorman, David Solomon, Jane Frazier and more testify in front of the Senate Banking Committee. They're in the Q &A session. Let's listen in back for more. Sometimes that means that we get to have you folks participate in that disagreement process. Today you're going to hear us talk a lot about consumers as they are the latest victim of heavy -handed Washington bureaucrats. In the last few months alone financial regulators have put forth or finalized regulations and guidance that represent the biggest rewrite of banking regulation since the passage of Dodd -Frank. We've seen regulations on bank capital, long -term debt resolution planning, the Community Reinvestment Act and climate risk management, just to name a few. However, we know that none of these regulations exist in a vacuum. Vice Chair Barr said himself that the Basel III endgame proposal is, and I quote, projected to raise capital for large banks. This may result in higher funding costs. But this is only half the story, end of quote. I want you to help tell the other half of the story. Now, I was just going to ask this of one of you, but since our chairman kind has of set the example of asking folks to raise their hands, and I'm going to apologize in advance because I think folks hate to be put in that position, I think it's critical that you get to tell the other half of that story. None of you raised your hands when you said that it would be, that it was a case of where you couldn't meet the capital requirements. The issue is what damage it does to the economy when you're expected to raise that and the folks who need that capital. So here's my questions, and I'm going to ask you to raise your hands. I apologize for that, but if you agree with these assessments, would you please raise your hands? Do you believe in its current form, could these regulations negatively impact first time home buyers? Do you believe in its current form, could these regulations negatively impact those saving for retirement? Do you believe that these regulations could negatively impact small business owners? And do you believe that these regulations could impact small business owners? See, this is the rest of the story. Sometimes think we that we're just beating up on the big banks, but the bottom line is it hits the American consumer where it hurts. This is at a time that when they try to go after the big guys, it's the American consumer that will suffer. You can already see the signs of

Fresh update on "senator" discussed on Bloomberg Markets
"I thank you for your leadership on this. Tell us briefly how it affects JP Morgan and why you're so supportive. I'd Then like to ask all of you if you would join Mr. Diamond and Senator Rounds and me in support. Senator, thank you. We have employees who don't want us to increase their salary because if it goes over a certain amount, they can't get that benefit, which they're entitled to. Or they can't have assets over $10 thousand. So this definitely should be fixed. We fully support it and try to be helpful if we can. Thank you. Mr. Sharf, would you agree to support Mr. Diamond's position and mine? It sounds like something that we'd be willing to support. We'd like to take a look at it. Mr. Moynihan? Ms. Fraser? Fully and wholeheartedly. Mr. Hamley? We do support it. Thank you, Mr. Vince. We do support it. Mr. Solomon? We do support it. Mr. Gorman? Yes. Thank you all. Senator Scott? Thank you, Mr. Chairman. One question for the panel. The chairman asked a question about can you achieve the increased capital requirements. My question is can you achieve the increased capital requirements without negative consequences to me and to Lindy? Senator, do we have concerns that some of the items in the proposal will lead us to increase the price or to reduce the capital requirements. There's a chart in the NPR that looks deceivingly simple. It says the here's RWA before the proposal and here's the RWA after proposal. It says 24 percent increase. That reduction is a in the capacity of this industry to serve its clients. No questions asked. The capital could have been used to create those additional RWA incremental. It has to be used to sustain the same activities we have today with no risk from the day before to the day after and what the enterprise does. That's the point we're trying to make is that this is about using our capital, whether we have it or not, and whether we have it to meet the new requirements to support additional activity, not the old activity which doesn't help the American economy. Thank you. I think one of the frustrations you hear from this group up here is this question should have been asked before it went out. We have to hold 30 % more capital than to national banks in the United States of America for every loan. A lot of loans have now fallen between but become unprofitable. So a lot of loans we talked about, they don't make sense for our company anymore. Small business, solidify solar, wind, middle market loans, certain trades you do with pension plans, etc. The work should have been done beforehand. By law, the UAS was the qualitative impact that should have been done beforehand. We had 10 years to do this and it's shocking to me that we're sitting here for 10 years and we're talking about what's it going to do for small business and we have to analyze it today. We're all going to fill hundreds of pages, thousands of pages of forms responding in a very detailed way to every single one of these things, but it was not thoughtfully done. I'm not sure it was shared fully among all the regulators. This be should re -looked at. And before I go to Ms. Fraser, my assumption is everyone's going to say, once that will be negative. So, let me ask a different question to you, Ms. Fraser. Perhaps perhaps the unintended impact from Basel the end game on customers. We so often talk about the American consumer as if there's just one generic consumer out there, but from a state South Carolina where we have a lot of farmers, the impact on farmers and access to not only credit, but liquidity during the hard times. Can you perhaps give me a 30 -second reaction to, will this have a negative impact on some of the rural communities that need derivatives? Walk me through that for a second. Certainly, and thank you very much for your question, Senator. This will, to your point, increase the cost of borrowing for farmers and rural communities. Thank you very much. Thank you. I'd like to give you an example. For a farmer, hedging your commodity costs and your commodity prices is an absolutely fundamental piece of providing stability and ability to sleep at night. Under the Basel III proposal, the cost of the derivatives would increase quite materially and that would therefore have an impact on farmers' ability to do a fairly fundamental component of risk management. It could also impact their access to credit. So it's the cost of borrowing, it's the access to credit and it's some of the fundamental tools that they need to manage their stability of their income. Mr. Solomon, you said something earlier that I thought was really important that as we discussed the Basel in -game proposal and its impact on lending and on folks like me that come from poverty or looking for the ability to achieve the American dream. Someone would say contrary to what I'm talking about maybe there are other points that are important that I'm missing in my thought process like is it going to make our financial system safer? Have we not done enough work since the financial crisis of 2007 to 2009 to make that sure our financial institutions are able to meet obligations and responsibilities under an even worse case scenario and your opening comments reflected that yes we have more a disastrous crisis. Can you walk through the importance of the regulatory burden that exists and how the Basel endgame would make it even harder for small business lenders or small business borrowers but not necessarily making our economy safer? Sure, thank you for the question, Senator. I tried to highlight in my opening comments and Mr. Gorman highlighted it quite clearly. These stress tests are very very significant tests that look at very very severe shocks to our balance sheets. I highlighted a 50 % decline in equity prices over a one -year period on top of that a simultaneous equity market shock that has looked at much as 30 % instantaneous equity declines. So very very severe shocks that we've not seen even in the worst crisis. That puts buffers in place that protect the system. Now of course a sound and secure system is imperative for our capital markets and we can always have debates at the margin as to whether or not there are things that we can do that can strengthen the system. But a wholesale increase of 25 % capital on the largest banks with lots of individual provisions that affect different properties I think is ultimately punitive to economic growth and doesn't strike the right cost benefit analysis. We of course need to make the system secure. The system is in good shape. We've seen that under stress. That doesn't aren't mean there things that can be done at the margin but this is a wholesale change that leads to problems. Ms. Fraser highlighted one example talking about farmers. You can look at airlines hedging jet fuel if you want to look at other derivatives which obviously gets passed on to consumers. You can look to gas being hedged in utilities which obviously gets passed on to consumers. And then you can look at other transactions. There's a provision under the rule called SFT which allows institutions like ours to borrow securities from pension plans and give them cash. That increases the returns and allows them to use their assets to increase the returns. Capital would increase by eight times for those types of transactions which would make them unattractive therefore and would diminish the ability for pensions to access that tool to increase the returns. Thank you. Thank you, sir. Scott Suterib from Rhode Island's recognized. Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman. And first, let me all thank you for your support of our military men and women. They are superb and their spouses are superb, so thank you for helping them out. With respect to the legislation that we passed several years ago, the Military Lending Act, I think the key aspect is the 36 percent interest gap. And I think it's such a critical aspect that it should not be a just province of military personnel, but every American.

Jared Asch Talks With Chris Whitmore of the Richmond Promise
"I am joined by Christopher Whitmore of Richmond Promise. And Chris, first, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to Richmond Promise. And then tell us, what is the Richmond Promise? Absolutely. First off, thank you for inviting me on the podcast. Really great to be here and have this conversation. So I was raised here in the city of Richmond. I still live in Richmond, and growing up here in our community, like so many other young people, I wanted to enter into a career pathway and build an adult life in which I could support the Richmond community and try to make this city, this community, the kind of place that I always envisioned it to be, which is a place where everyone can thrive. Everyone can feel welcome here in Richmond, feel like they have opportunities from the city, from the community to be who they want to be, to contribute to this space and to make this city better for everyone. And so with that really broad, general goal in mind, I decided at a very young age, elementary school age, that I wanted to be a public official when I grew up. I wanted to work specifically in the mayor's office of the city of Richmond when I grew up. And my godmother, Erma Anderson, was mayor when I was in elementary school. She was the first African -American woman elected mayor of the city of Richmond. I grew up with folks like John Gioia, who's our county supervisor and has been our representative for several years on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and several other folks who really inspired me to want to build out a career in public service. And so with that in mind, I went off to college. I went out of state to Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. I studied political science with an emphasis in public law. After graduating from Webster in 2014, I moved to Washington, D .C., where I was accepted into a congressional fellowship. And through that fellowship, I worked in the office of then U .S. Senator Bill Nelson's office of Florida. I moved back to Richmond in December 2014 and got my first job, first full time job working for Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, who at the time was the representative, newly elected representative for California's 11th congressional district. I had the privilege of working as an outreach coordinator in his Richmond office, which is actually just down the hall from where my current office is today. A year later, 2016, I got to accomplish that childhood goal of mine of working in the mayor's office. I worked for Mayor Tom Butt, starting off initially as his director of community engagement, later promoted to be his director of policy and strategy. After about two years in that office, I went over to the city and county of San Francisco, where I went to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and worked on their policy and government affairs team. And for about a year and a half, I wrote, along with my supervisor, all of the water, power and wastewater legislation for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. And I'll speed up the story. So about a year and a half later, I came back here to the city of Richmond and served as Tom Butt's chief of staff for exactly two years. And two years ago, October 4th, 2021, I started as Richmond Promise's second executive director. And it's been a great journey over the last two years, and I was really inspired to make the transition from the mayor's office to Richmond Promise. Just thinking back on my experience growing up in Richmond, having a goal to go to college at a young age for the sake and purpose of really accomplishing my career goals. And just being reminded constantly that there are so many other young people in Richmond who have educational and career goals for themselves. And those young people also deserve to have really strong support systems in our community to help them go off and do the things that they want to do. And I came over to Richmond Promise to strengthen that support system for our entire community.
Jordan Peterson Spits Truth on Bill Maher
"Are the victims and as you pointed out if you're a victim then you're morally righteous and even more conveniently if you stand for the victim then you're morally righteous regardless of what you do with your own life and that's pretty much what university students are taught from the time they enter the university classroom and that's how they you know orient themselves morally well and that's at the hands of the radical to left bill and one of the things the Democrats also have to pay the price for I would say is their absolute to draw a line between the moderate Democrats and the extremists they're completely incapable of doing that I've talked to 40 senators and congressmen in the last five years I asked them all the same question including RFK he wouldn't answer either when does the left go too far well we certainly bloody well saw last it month didn't we because it got the oppressor oppression narrative a little mocked up we might say and we're going to consequences that are going to unfold pretty brutally over the next few months now listen he's a hundred percent right that is exactly the mindset of a leftist that is exactly the mindset of a progressive right there is also a good time to remind you by the way of you know the Democrat Party hates America I assume by now you've gotten your copy if you have not gotten your copy what are you waiting for you can grab your limited first edition signed copy of the Democrat Party hates America before they're gone and they will be gone levinsigned .com levinsigned .com that's the website that's the address that's a mr. producer gave me anyway so if I it screwed up it it's on him it's on him not me levinsigned .com is where you go get your limited first edition signed copy of the Democrat Party hates America before it's gone well think about it I mean think about that in the context of the Democrat Party hates America America is the ultimate oppressor America is the ultimate oppressor if you you go to college and you listen to a professor who's not professor
Blinken Is Exploiting the War Against Israel
"Don't understand this us they're they telling support Hamas they voted for Hamas we believe in Palestinian led governance of Gaza with Gaza unified with the West Bank okay Gaza unified with the West Bank so now you're going to take all of Judea and Samaria Israel's ancestral land, the Jewish people's ancestral land, and hand it to the Palestinians now keep in mind if Blinken has its way they'll be handing this to the very people who tried to slaughter the Jews just six weeks ago so in other words their terrorism will Gaza's reconstruction must be supported with a sustained mechanism we also underscored America's firm opposition to actions that would undermine efforts to build lasting peace and security no possible displacement of Palestinian civilians from Gaza not now not after the fighting so let's stop there that was Egypt's land, not Palestinian land so just following this now the Palestinians have a forever right to it because it was given to them in 2005 by the Israelis so now it's theirs Israel, nothing's permanent. And I want to remind you after War World II there was a denazification of Germany there was a an effort to it change the cultural belief system in Japan and other places you don't just win wars and then give the land to the loser and then it will do better things you've got an entire culture going from when the Palestinians are babies all the way till whatever age they are And what Blinken's saying is we're not going to address that. disaster. He goes no reoccupation of Gaza after the conflict. I got to thinking somebody like this guy? He's a bureaucrat. longtime He worked for Joe Biden when Biden was a senator. He was a Senate staffer. Poison Ivy League you know courses and so forth and now he's here and he's telling the whole world what's going to happen. Nobody's elected him. He says no reoccupation of Gaza after the conflict. No attempt to blockade or besiege Gaza. There's no reduction in the territory of Gaza, no use of Gaza as a platform for terrorism or other violent acts, and no tolerating the use of the West Bank to carry out such attacks. What does this even mean?
Judge Temporarily Lifts Gag Order in Trump’s Civil Fraud Trial
"On CNN and MSNBC and everywhere else how about all these phony legal analysts that said Donald Trump clearly violated this judges gag order or that judges gag order and they should send them to jail remember who said that Joe Scarborough Mr. among reprobates other judge David Friedman of the intermediate appeals it's a weird system in New York their Supreme Court is the trial level then they had the first level the intermediate appeals court and then they have ultimately their appellate court which is effectively their Supreme Court why mark well somebody got drunk that's why judge David Freeman of the state's intermediate appeals court issued what's known as a stay suspending the gag order and by the way there was a judicial nominee that Joe flopped Biden up there in the Senate and Senator John Kennedy I love this guy can't get him on any of my shows so I gave up he answered a simple quote what's the difference between a stay and an injunction I really don't know what you what he asked these people the most basic questions even and they know don't the answer because Joe Biden is loading the courts with ideologues and I might add with the help of Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham sorry Lindsey that's what you're doing the trial judge Arthur Ngaran not to be confused with the dictator Islamist of Turkey imposed a gag order on October 3 after Trump made a false comment about the judge's law crack on social media how do you know it was false then then he finds trump fifteen thousand for violating and expanded it to his lawyers after they question the clerk's prominent role in the trial what was happening is this clerk over and over again kept whispering to the judge and the judge kept whispering to the clerk like they were on a date or something but as I explained the other day a lot of these judges are absolutely stupid and have almost no real litigation experience even more than that they can't write or whatever and they rely on their clerks to
Let's Get "Unwoke" With Senator Ted Cruz
"Him backing me up when I needed it. He's just a good guy. Welcoming back to the show. Senator Ted Cruz. Senator, thanks for your time. We appreciate it. Dan, great to be with you. Thanks for me having on. You got it. So you got this new book out. I'm looking. It's already a mega bestseller. I'm gonna ask you a bunch of questions about this. It's called Unwoke, folks. Unwoke. How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America. And I want to get to the book in a second, but this question will kind of segue right into it. I you know care as much as I do about our military. It's a passion of yours. I know that I've spoken to you privately it. about Given you wrote this book on moke, it's got to get under your skin that we're decimating our military and getting them away from the mission of defeating our enemy. It's not a cutesy time mission. We have to kill bad guys. That's what the military does. And we're getting into this DEI, which I call DIE for a reason stuff. And you've been up there on the hill, you're hearing of all these stupid, ridiculous justifications from Millie and others. Is there anything we can do to stop this and get them back to which is the real mission? But look, you're exactly right that that the military is to protect this mission to keep Americans safe. And unfortunately, under under Joe Biden, the military has been been more and more their political leadership. They're focused on politics. They're focused on, you know, you've got commanders telling the servicemen and women under under them, they can't use the pronouns he or she they can't use the words mother or father. And as the military gets more woke, fewer and fewer people actually want to sign up to defend this nation. And we've got a recruiting huge problem, because the people who sign up to serve their patriots, they want to fight. don't They want to be treated like wusses. And and unfortunately,
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/14/23
"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. 738 on this Tuesday, the 14th day of November. Lots of Texas political news. But I did get a chance to spend a moment there in the opening half hour saying that I grow weary of the moral fog. In fact, on Twitter just a couple of moments ago, in these fractured times, I'm glad to give a Democrat some credit. Democrat Senator Chris Coons, who is right on Israel, was confronted by this stooge pro -Hamas activist on a train who badgered him. Why not a ceasefire? Why not a ceasefire? Sometimes moral clarity is something that needs to be delivered in a certain fashion. I'd like to think I have it intellectually and conceptually. My buddy Mike Gallagher joins us, who had an experience yesterday that will bring that kind of clarity in the harshest but necessary terms. I just can't wait to see how this day went. It had to be amazing and I'm just so glad you're here and the floor is yours. And tell everybody what you got a chance to do yesterday. Well, it was something that no one would want to see. It was pretty brutal. It was worse than I thought it was going to be. Israel put together a 45 -minute sort of a collection of video and audio and still photographs. They were videos from the terrorists' GoPros and their cell phones. There were closed -circuit videos and there were audio intercepts. They got audio recordings of the terrorists calling their families. The IDF was able to tap into some of these calls where they were calling their parents excitedly, saying, I just killed 10 Jews with my bare hands, Mom. Your son is a hero. Your son is a hero, Aloha Akbar. And they're all joyful and ecstatic. A couple of takeaways. When you watch the brutality of the violence that they inflicted on these innocent men, women, children, elderly people, there are a couple of things that really stand out. Number one, the ecstasy and the joy that the Hamas terrorists experienced as they were killing people, including little babies in little onesies and little daisy outfits and cute little kids covered in blood, slaughtered brutally. And they were absolutely euphoric, Mark. That's the only word to use. It was ecstatic for them. They had such a joy. And I kept telling myself, there's no way they think that Jews are human. There's no way that they regard them as human beings. You couldn't do that to another human being and have that kind of satisfaction. I mean, let's face it. When you think about crime in America or crimes of passion or murders or robberies or whatever, what have you, normal people don't have euphoria when they cut somebody's head off. They don't get joyful and they don't call their moms and brag about it and say, look what I did. Look what I did. So number one, that's one of the big takeaways. And the other thing I kept thinking about, and it was a somber mood. It was at the Israeli embassy. There were a number of some media people there, some pastors. It was a gathering from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews who we worked with closely right after the terror attack of October the 7th. About 60 people in the room, maybe 70. It was very somber. It was very well done. But as you can imagine, there were tears. There was crying. There was weeping. One pastor in front of me, in fact, he happens to be a pastor from Sarasota, not far from where I'm at right now. When it was over, he kind of flung himself down onto the ground and laid across the stage and was laying on his belly just heaving, just crying and sobbing. I mean, you're looking right at the face of the devil. You're looking at evil with this. And I kept thinking, Mark, how I wish the people marching at Columbia and Harvard and in Austin, how I wish they could see this video. From the river to the sea, you proud now? You proud now? I mean, you know, the one pastor, I spent some time, I pulled double duty after the show and then I did the screening at this embassy. And then I was asked to do an afternoon show for WAVA, which is a huge Christian teaching and talk station. Over in Arlington, yeah. Yep, the Arlington. And so Don Crow has been out on a medical leave and they asked me to fill in for him. And I had with me Bishop Lanier, who is the chairman of the board of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, as a very profound speaker, very eloquent, very, you know, just a great orator and a great man of the cloth. And he said, look, I don't think we're going to change their minds. We need to change our minds. We need to change what we say from the pulpit. We've got to stop the equivocation. Well, it's two sides here. People are dying on both sides. That is both -sides -ism of the worst possible stripe. It really is, Mark. And I just want to reiterate that because I don't know that Israel, listen, if Israel was guilty of any of the stuff that I saw yesterday, that I experienced, and again, I'm not trying to be melodramatic. It's one of the most painful things I've ever, ever encountered. I mean, and I'll spare you gory details. You can imagine how bad it was. I mean, you already have seen some of it, you know, lining up on the streets and just shooting into cars of innocent passengers trying to drive down the street. But there was one scene in particular that got to me the most. I do want to share it with you. There was a father alone with his sons. The mother was gone, and it was in the kibbutz. They did a horrible massacre in this kibbutz, which is like a Jewish religious holy neighborhood, you know. But they're beautiful little homes. I mean, oh, their homes were so cute and decorated and, you know, plants on the porches and everything. And they were meticulously taken care of. So here's this father in the house, and it's all captured on the family's closed -circuit video. So they had like a ring system all throughout the house and outside, and it was all captured. So the father is with these two boys. I would guess the one little boy was about seven or eight. The other one was probably 11 or 12. And the little boys were in their underwear. And the shots ring out, and the father, they're all terrified, and the father desperately tries to protect his children. He scoops them both up, and they run into the backyard, and they go into a little shed that's in the backyard. It looked like a little gardening shed. And you see a Hamas terrorist come around the corner and casually pull the pit off of a grenade and throw the grenade in the shed. And it blows up, and the father immediately slumps out of the shed dead. You could tell he's instantly dead. But the two little boys are alive, and they come running out in their underwear. The one boy, you can see it looks like his eye is missing. He is terrified. The two little boys are crying, Daddy, Daddy, Mommy, Mommy. They go into the kitchen. Now the closed -circuit video picks them up in the kitchen where they're talking to each other. And they said to each other, and it's all translated, of course, and they said, Is this real? Is this real? I think we're going to die. Daddy died. Daddy died. Where's Mommy? Where's Mommy? And then the one little boy turns to his brother, his little brother, and says, Can you see out of that eye? He says, No, I can't. And he looks at him, and you can see that it looks like his whole side of his face was injured from the grenade. And he says, You can't? You can't? You can't see? He goes, No, I can't see anything out of my eye. And the little boys are crying, and they're calling for their Mommy. And then the closed -circuit shifts back to the backyard where a kibbutz security guard, actually two security guards, have escorted the mother to the property. She had been away. So they take her to the back of the shed where her dead husband is laying. She is now in anguish and screaming and collapsing and screaming, Where are my boys? Where are my boys? At the same time, the two boys, they run out of the house in the front, trying to escape. And Lord knows what fate they met. I don't have a whole lot of high hope that they made it. And I'd like to look into that. I'm going to follow up with my friends at the fellowship to see if those boys were reunited with their mother. But that's the human suffering that I wish people who seem to dehumanize Jews would see. It was eye -opening. I'm glad I did it. I'm honored that I did it. I'm glad you did, too. I'm so glad. But it was awful. And I wouldn't want anybody to see it. For people who – and sometimes you can hear people in your headphones and hear people driving around. And I want to give a voice to people saying we could show a horrible video of a Palestinian child to whom something terrible has happened, and that is undeniably true.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.
A highlight from The GOP Presidential Debate Spin Room and Sen. Ted Cruz's new book "Unwoke"
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Mike Gallagher. We're in Miami post -debate. We were in the spin room last night over at the Adrian Art Center. It's nice to be surrounded by good people. And there's a fine U .S. senator from Texas who we're very pleased to welcome back to the show. Ted Cruz has a book that you've got to read. I mean, as you look around and wonder about how wokeness is damaging and even destroying America, his book goes right to the heart of it, Unwoke, How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America. It's a real honor to welcome back to The Mike Gallagher Show, Republican senator from Texas, Senator Ted Cruz. All right. We've got book talking to get to. I've got a couple of co -hosts in here with me from a great organization that I'm sure you're familiar with, Senator Cruz, Job Creators Network, and the great Alfredo Ortiz and Gary Rabiner in here in the studio with me in Miami sort of helping to co -host and talking about our debate. And we'll have you chat with them for just a moment. First of all, Senator, congratulations on the book. What a time to be alive. I mean, I never thought we'd be able to see good versus evil in such a transparent way. The clarity of the battle that you've been talking about publicly for many years, good versus evil, has never been more profound. Well, Mike, you're exactly right. It's good to be with you. Thank you for having me back on the show. Listen, you're right. The world has gone insane. And I wrote this in America. I wrote the book because like millions of Americans, I'm looking at what's going on, going, what in the hell is happening? How did the world go so crazy? And what this book does is it examines how the radical left seized control of every major institution in America. And so each chapter, chapter one starts with university. And I call the universities the universities where it was created. It's where it mutated. It's where it spread. And from the universities, then I go to K through 12 education. And from there to journalism and from there to government, and from there to big business and then big tech, and then entertainment, movies, TV, sports, music, and then science. And then the last chapter is on China, and how China is a central nexus that links them all together. And what this book does is two things. Number one, it how explains and why the cultural Marxist seized control from within of each of those institutions.

A State Department spokesman said Blinken conveyed that message to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during the Secretary's unannounced visit to the West Bank today. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders emphatically supports Israel's right to defend itself but also says the bombing in Gaza must stop. Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, Sanders said Israel's right to defend itself does not give it the right to kill thousands and thousands of innocent men, women and children. Sanders, who is Jewish, called Hamas an awful terrorist organization and he condemned the group's October 7th attacks on Israelis that led to the Israel -Hamas war. Newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson is defending a House bill that provides more than $14 billion in aid to Israel by cutting an equal amount of funding to the IRS.

A highlight from SAM BANKMAN-FRIED CONVICTED & GOING TO JAIL! DXY CRASHES CRYPTO PUMP INCOMING!
"The Bernie Madoff of crypto, Sam Beckman -Fried, has been found guilty on seven counts in his fraud trial. Also, the DXY, the dollar currency index, is crashing. That means assets are about to pump. Get ready. Let's break it down. Welcome to the Thinking Crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify or Apple, please leave a five -star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, Sam Beckman -Fried found guilty by jury in landmark crypto trial. The jury found the former executive guilty after a month -long trial where the prosecution presented nearly 17 witnesses to the defense's three, with Beckman -Fried himself taking the stand. FTX co -founder Gary Wang, former head of engineering Nishad Singh, and former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison testified against their former colleague. Sam Beckman -Fried's sentencing hearing is scheduled for March 28th. A hearing will be held where the judge Louis Kaplan, who oversaw the entirety of Beckman -Fried's trial, will decide his sentence. The former executive faces a maximum sentence of 115 years. Folks, this is great news. This is what we wanted to see. This guy needs to go away for a long time. He is a fraudster and a scammer. And as stated, he is the Bernie Madoff of the crypto industry. What he did was just an old -fashioned crime here. It had nothing specific to do with crypto. Yes, crypto was part of the means or the assets, but this could have been done with cash. A bank could do this. They can co -mingle and steal customer funds. This is what he was essentially doing. So great news. It's something that I think the entire crypto industry and market was waiting for so we can put it behind us and move forward. Now, I want to share a clip of a US attorney of SDNY, Damian Williams, his statements he made, because this is coming from someone who has nothing to do with crypto. He's just part of the law system and he had some really great statements. Let me play it here for you. My name is Damian Williams and I'm the United States attorney here in the Southern District of New York. Sam Bankman -Fried perpetrated one of the biggest financial frauds in American history, a multi -billion dollar scheme designed to make him the king of crypto. Here's the thing. The cryptocurrency industry might be new. The players like Sam Bankman -Fried might be new. But this kind of fraud, this kind of corruption is as old as time and we have no patience for it. So great statements here from Damian Williams. And as stated, this is a fraud as old as time. Sam Bankman -Fried didn't come up with a new scheme. He just did an old fashioned crime. And the problem here was that the regulators, like the SEC, who met with Sam Bankman -Fried multiple times, like Gary Gensler, did not do any investigations. And he was meeting with these folks, making campaign donations while committing big time fraud. And as Damian said here, he perpetrated one of the biggest financial crimes in American history. And now he's going to have to go to jail. So this is a good day, folks. We want to put this behind us and keep moving forward. The market needs us to move forward from this. And from a public perception standpoint, we need to show that, hey, this was a bad actor and there are good actors in the crypto industry. And this technology and asset class will continue to grow. An example of the takeaways that are coming out as a result of the FTX collapse, as well as Celsius and so forth. And that is many folks in Congress and the Senate are pushing for what's called proof of reserves to make sure all these crypto exchanges have their customer reserves. It's 100 % back and there's no commingling and these things happening. In hindsight, it's like, this should have been done a long time ago, but this is the failure of Congress, as well as the regulators to not act sooner. This is a new technology. We're in a global competition and other countries are moving ahead. The UK, the EU have passed crypto regulations. The United States has not. There's still bills stuck in the house and there's infighting, right? It's nonsense. So we need to get these things going. So here, I'll just read a headline from October. US senators set in motion a bipartisan proof of reserves bill. So we need to make sure that these things are in place. Now, a great exchange that I've been using since 2018 and that is a sponsor of this podcast is Uphold and they have proof of reserves. They back their customer funds 100%. So they do audits as well. So you can verify that you have a lot of transparency and I trust this platform. I've interviewed the CEO, the CFO, and I've been using them for a long time. You can also trade precious metals and over 37 Fiat currencies on this platform. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. Now, folks, what's interesting is that Bitcoin right now is still consolidating. So we can see here, not much happening. It kind of pulled back below 35 ,000, but that's fine, right? It's chopping. It's building the support levels, right? There's a move upwards. We break through resistance. We build support. Then we move up and break through another resistance. It's just market cycles playing out. So no need to panic. Bitcoin is back below 35. Some people are going a little nuts. It may drop back down to 34. That's okay. It's all within the range of consolidation and building support levels. But what's interesting, and here the blockchain backer just tweeted out, the DXY, the dollar currency index is crashing, folks. It takes a hard tumble through the 106 Fibonacci level here. Folks, that is bullish because as we've talked about many times, when the DXY is pumping, assets start crashing. When the DXY is crashing, assets start pumping. Now, it's not an immediate thing where it happens in the seconds and the minutes, but watch over the next week or so, we're going to see assets start to move upwards. So very bullish in my opinion. Now, this coupled with the Fed pausing rate hikes is all bullish narratives. Now, when the Fed starts to cut rates, that's usually a sign something is about to break. That's when you put up the red flags a little bit. But right now, I think we're okay. The Fed is pausing. The DXY is crashing and Bitcoin is looking to get ready to move to its next level. And as always, it's going to pull the altcoins with it. So we can expect the altcoins to rise. And this is not a move to new all -time highs. Like I've been saying, this is a move to retracement level. So we're anticipating Bitcoin going to between 40 to 50K. That's not guaranteed. That's just a thesis. And altcoins will follow Bitcoin's move, at which point I think Bitcoin rolls over a little bit. Maybe it goes back down to 30K range. It starts to move slow and steady into 2024. And we possibly may hit some new all -time highs in 2024 for Bitcoin. But I think there's a very high probability we hit new all -time highs in 2025. And that will be the peak of the next bull market. So this is based on how the market has performed historically. Could things be different this time? Absolutely. But there's no facts right now to say that it will be different. So we are forming our thesis based on the facts, the fundamentals, the technical analysis, and much more. So looking really good here, folks. Now we got news here that Coinbase posted its earnings and they beat the expectations, which is really good. Here's the headline. Coinbase post earnings beat with $674 million in Q3 revenue. So you may say, well, who cares, Tony? Well, look, I do own some Coinbase stock, but this is a indication. This is a marker, a metric that we use to show that the market is recovering. And I think that's clear as day. If you look at the Bitcoin chart, we bought them in November of 2022 and we've been on the rise since. Is it a rollercoaster ride on the way up? Of course. But that's the market. And you can use that volatility to make money. You can swing trade. But the fact that Coinbase as the largest crypto exchange in the United States is posting a positive revenue numbers here and earnings numbers is a good sign, right? Multiple indicators showing that we are growing. We are coming out of the bear market. I don't believe we are officially in a bull market yet. I think we're in the transition phase from bear to bull. I believe the official bull market starts next year at the Bitcoin halving. Well, folks, that's the news. Let me know what you think. Leave your thoughts and comments below. How many years of sentencing do you think Sandbank, graffiti is going to get? Let me know what you think. And I'll talk to you all later.

"Number one, the study guide is available for my book, letter to the American church. A lot of people have been saying, we want to study guide because we want to do this. We want to study the book in our home group or whatever. I'm thrilled to hear that because this is about changing America. This is about saving America. This is about the church, stepping up and doing the right thing, precisely in the way that the German church did not step up and do the right thing in the 30s as Hitler rose to power. Nobody saw what was coming. They looked the other way and by the time it happened, it was too late. The reason I believe God called me to write led to the American church is to avert that nightmare, which absolutely is happening and will happen unless the American church stands up. So the book is letter to the American church. The study guide is now available. You can get it either at Amazon or at Socrates in the city dot com if you prefer to get it there. So I want to mention that letter to the American church, the study guide is now available. Okay, I also want to mention, we are thrilled to say that we that there's a film out now. I have seen the film, okay? I don't get to watch every film that we talk about on this program. I've seen every minute of the film. It's called the real Anthony Fauci. It's made by Robert F Kennedy, junior, I mean, well, you know he wrote a book called the real Anthony Fauci. He exposes the nightmare, okay? At the heart of what Fauci did, because, you know, you hear a lot of information, but if you're not on top of this, you're kind of wondering what's true, what's not true. His book is the real Anthony Fauci, the film is available for free for a short time. So this is why I sound urgent. You have to go to the real Anthony Fauci movie dot com to see it for free. I'm telling you I've seen it, and I think if you see it, it will change what you what you know about what has happened in this country. And you can share it with anybody. You can tell it tell everyone you know, it's free, okay? The real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. The real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. It is free. When I'm talking about it, I guess some of you understand that what he does brilliantly in the book and in this film is the exposes the connection between the NIH, okay, Frances Collins. I had him speak at Socrates in the city number of years ago. This is, you know, outspoken evangelical Christian. He and others bowed the knee to the Chinese protocols to big pharma. It is a nightmare. What happened? But you need to know what happened because it affected all of us. So, you know, it Bill Gates obviously involved the amount of money involved is just horrific and Anthony Fauci is at the center of this Facebook Google Microsoft they're involved. So go to the real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. The real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. And before we go, let me remind you if you have not yet participated in our campaign to free slaves in the Sudan, Christian salda international is doing God's work, but they need your help. Every $250. You don't have to give that. You can give ten times that, but you can give a hundred times that. You can give 100th of that, whatever you give will help free a slave. But $250 is the magic number to free a slave and set that person up in a life of freedom..

"I'm sorry to say well, I think when it comes to the FBI, what the Durham report really shows us and what we've heard from testimony in Congress is the leadership at the FBI is corrupt and you can start start by replacing it. The FBI director needs to go the upper Echelon of leadership need to go. The same is true at the Department of Justice. So let's not forget Merrick Garland, who oversees the FBI formally as the attorney general, when you have an attorney general who is willing to sign off on sending S.W.A.T. teams to the homes of pro life demonstrators to terrorize them to threaten them, you've lost all moral credibility. When you have an attorney general who treats parents as domestic terrorists because they want to speak up at school board meetings, you have lost all moral credibility. He should have been gone a long time ago. Beyond that, I think we've got to ask ourselves, is the FBI really going to do law enforcement? Are they just going to interfere in politics? I mean, are they just going to try to rig presidential elections? And if we need to, we should start taking away pieces like, for instance, human trafficking is something the FBI is supposed to do. Anti trafficking, did my mind as I talk with cops all across the country, something they're not doing. So maybe the answer here is if you can't do the jobs you're supposed to do, we should break it up. I mean, maybe we need a new trafficking agency. Maybe we need to break up the FBI's law enforcement functions. Many of which are vital, but that seem to not be a priority these days. Politics seems to be the priority. That's very interesting. I hadn't thought of the idea of breaking it up that way. But it does seem to me that it has gotten so big, so bloated, so drunk on power that it is no longer doing all the things that we would expect that it might do. And I don't know what you would call that, you know, it's like breaking up a baby of mama bell, whatever. You know, when you see this thing that's a monopoly, it's a behemoth. It's a monolith. And those kinds of aggregations of power, of course, are at war with the founders vision of self government. You can not have that kind of power, and they gave us these checks and balances, but over time, this has happened. So has anyone else proposed that idea of breaking up the FBI into some constituent pieces? Not that I've seen, but I think it's something that we absolutely want to look at. And we ought to look at the whole intelligence apparatus. I mean, the last time we did this in any serious way was before I was born, it was back in the early 1970s, the church commission, the middle 1970s, you know, that really exposed all those abuses by the CIA and our other intelligence agencies. We need to have that kind of a thorough no holds barred overturn every stone investigation again of the FBI and of our intelligence agencies to figure out what in the world is going on. And there's no question they become too powerful. I mean, when the FBI is basically unaccountable, they don't answer to anybody. They don't sort of Congress. I can tell you, they just defy any of our attempts to get information from them. They don't answer to the president. They try to interfere in elections. That is a huge, huge problem. Well, it's astonishing. It's just hard for me to process that we're at that place in the United States of America where the system doesn't work. I mean, if they don't, if they aren't held to account by Congress, they're lawless. There are law unto themselves. I guess they're able to get away with it because of Merrick Garland because of Joe Biden. I'm not sure what we can do. Well, and what you see is, yes, right now those people are protecting them. The Democrats in Congress are protecting them. But remember when Republicans had control of Congress and Trump was president, the way the FBI acted an insulated itself was this campaign of basically resistance. I mean, were you had the leadership of the FBI saying that we're going to actively work against the president. We're going to actively work against Congress. We're going to defy their attempts to get information from us. I mean, that is, we can't have that in America from any bureaucracy, but especially not a law enforcement bureaucracy. We just can't have it. And that's why we have to pursue fundamental reform. I don't know what the perfect answer is. Maybe there isn't one, but we have certainly got to put our shoulder to this task. And try and fix this, because right now it is just unsustainable. But speaking as a non senator, the only one, really, in this conversation, I have to ask you, how can you do that? I don't understand, in a sense, how these things work, how would you begin? Because we know this needs to happen yesterday. Well, I think what the house is doing is exactly the right thing, which is issuing subpoenas. You can't ask these people to cooperate with you because they just defy you. And the house has asked in the Senate has asked, and the FBI director says, no, or they don't come. Get this, Eric, I was at a hearing a few months back where the FBI director left the Christopher wray left the hearing early. This is the Senate Judiciary Committee. He said he had to go couldn't stay for questions. He had a pressing obligation. It turns out he was getting on a plane to fly to vacation in the adirondacks. That's the level of respect or lack thereof. These people have. He just doesn't want to answer questions. So we just left. So you can't ask them. You have to order them. You've got to issue subpoenas. You've got to go get into their records. You've got to launch investigations. You've got to get the truth. And that's what we need to do. And then if you're going to change the FBI and reform it, you've got to do it through legislation. And so do you think that that will happen? Do you think that there are folks who have the will to do that? Well, I think they do. I think Republicans do in the house right now. I mean, I think that's why you're seeing all this dusk get kicked up because they're trying to do it. And we've got to go after relentlessly. Ultimately, we've got to win elections. And we've got to take back The White House. We need a majority. I wish we had more time. Senator Josh hawley were very grateful to you.

"And I think we should say to men, you were meant to change other people's lives. So let's get into that adventure. Well, it's a beautiful narrative. It's a true narrative. And again, I just want to say thank you for writing on this vitally important subject. This is one of the permanent things. Who am I? Who are we as human beings as men as women? You could have written a book just about the news of the day. I want to talk to you a little bit about the news of the day, so to speak. But we do have to recover these basics, otherwise we can't move forward. I think one of the things you put out in a tweet the other day about holding evildoers accountable. You didn't say evildoers. But many Americans, of course, most Americans are shocked at some of the things that have been done at the, those who signed this letter calling the Hunter Biden laptop, Russian disinformation at Hillary Clinton and company creating this false narrative about Russia and Trump. And with the advent finally, of course, of the Durham report, I think most people are saying, okay, how are we going to hold these folks accountable? They've done a deeply wicked thing. They have gone to war against the American people, not against Donald Trump against the American people and their elected leader, Donald Trump. So you've been one of those who has been boldly trying to hold some people to account. What is your sense of how we can do that or where this goes? Well, my sense is that the Durham report lays bare the corruption at the FBI and the Department of Justice and the CD FBI attempt to interfere in a presidential election in 2016 to the extent of opening that investigation without any basis whatsoever lying repeatedly to a secret court to get wiretaps, which the FBI did, not just once, but multiple times over a period of months and years, this is shocking stuff. I mean, it rivals the worst abuses of the J. Edgar Hoover era. In fact, I don't know of another time American history had the FBI tried to interfere in a presidential election. Listen, I simply don't think there is anything that compares with this level of corruption, we'll be right back final segment talking to senator Josh hawley, the book is manhood, the masculine virtues American needs. Get your own get rhythm. When you get the blues well I said and to listen to the shushin boy and I thought I was gonna jump with joy. Slap boom as you polish left and right it took you shine ragging he held it tight. He stopped once to wipe the light down. American style doing that let's welcome back. I'm talking to senator Josh hawley, his new book is manhood, the masculine virtues America needs. One of those virtues, I would say, senator hawley, is bold leadership, fearless leadership, and you are one of a tiny handful of folks in the legislative branch that I would say has been bold and fearless and you have called for accountability. I honestly have to say following on what you just mentioned a moment ago, we, if you've lived long enough, you know that what we're going through now is a nation is unprecedented. And it's difficult to process because it's unprecedented to see this level of corruption at the heart of the FBI. I mean, I honestly think the FBI principally has become so political that it ought to be excised that we ought to defund the FBI. You can not have this kind of power that's not answerable to we the people. And some of the things they've done are so despicable that it's actually shocking. But the question is, what do we do? How do we hold them accountable? How do we drain the swamp? How do we shrink the bureaucracy that has grown up and that to my mind is tyranus Lee at war with we the people on a level that George the third really, I don't think George the third was ever as consciously at war with the 13 colonies as organized about it as those elites who are trying to take over this nation..

"Tell me why relief factor is so successful at lowering or eliminating pain. I'm often asked that question just the other night I was asked that question, well, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, and each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. That's the point. So approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. If you've got back pain, shoulder, neck, hip, knee, or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it'll work for you. It has worked for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more. I'm one of them go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer. Feel the difference. Folks, welcome back, talking to senator Josh hawley, his new book is called manhood, the masculine virtues America needs. Senator holiday even talking about virtue. I often say, I mean, and this is funny because C. S. Lewis is already talking about this like in the 40s about how the elites mock the idea of virtue and honor and dignity. All of those ideas have been sneered at by the cultural elites for so long now that it's worked its way. It's trickled down into the culture itself so that in public schools we don't talk about virtue and we haven't for half a century. That has had a genuinely toxic effect on the culture. And we need to, I think, for young men, in particular, we need to say to them that the path to manhood, the life of being a man is a life of character. It is a path of character. It is about self discipline. It is about learning to give yourself to others. You know, Eric, the left basically says, make God yourself. Make pleasure your God. You know, I mean, put yourself at the center of life. And in fact, the true path to happiness, not to mention significance, it's just the opposite. It is give yourself away, invest in other people, serve something greater than yourself. That's where characters found. That's where virtue is cultivated. And you know what? That's what men want, by the way. And I'm sure women too, but I can speak from experience as a man. Men want to be called to a great adventure. Men want to be called to a great purpose. So many young men are depressed today because they don't feel that sense of purpose and we need to hold up this vision, I think, to call them back to it. I agree heartily, and I want to say that bluntly, this is God's idea, folks. This is not something that we are simply asserting that senator hawley or I are simply asserting like we think this is the right answer. We are saying this is God's idea. There is no escaping it. He made you, he made you for life of adventure and purpose, he made you to be a warrior to fight for the good to fight for what is true. And if you're not doing that, you're missing everything. You're going to spiral into despair as we said earlier. And we need to recapture this in the culture. And again, there have been so many voices, the cultural elites are at war with the idea of God. They're at war with the idea of the masculine, they're ultimately, of course, were with all of God's reality, including women being women. And so this is, this is a battle that God calls us to. So there's something beautiful in heroic about it. And I just recently thought senator that we need to be more bold as you are in this book in talking about this publicly because I know that there are people desperately hungry to hear these things. They're not hearing them. And when they hear them, they respond. Because the left's agenda, the left ideology, Eric is basically atheistic. I mean, that's the true root of the matter. And Edmund Burke saw this centuries ago. When the modern left really came into being in the French Revolution, he looked at that and he said, this is a war on the permanent things. This is a war to erase eternity. This is a war to divide the generations to sunder the present moment from the great history of the past and from the legacy of the Bible, the legacy of faith. And that's exactly what is happening now and to your point about young people today, record high rates of depression, record high rates of suicide, record high rates of mental health issues, a huge reason for that is no sense of purpose. So what are we going to do about it? I think what we do about it is we recover the stories that tell us who we're meant to be. That's when the book I tell stories from the Bible, stories from American history, stories from my own experience, coaches, mentors who were significant to me to hold up these role models. Here's what it looks like to live a life of purpose. Here's what it looks like to change somebody else's life..

"Yeah, that's right. And I think just on the point about sort of foundations in the book, what I do is all the way back, go all the way back to genesis and say, what is God's idea of what it means to be a man? And he look all the way back in the garden. Why did God create a man? He created him to work with God to partner with God to advance God's purposes and, you know, fundamentally look at the symbolism of genesis. It's the garden expand the garden into the wilderness. You know, take the garden expand at the place where God is, expand it, make the world a place where God is fit to dwell. Make the world beautiful, make the world orderly make the world a place where God's glorious. That was the first man's role that is all men's role. And so we try to unpack that, but it's a grand vision. I mentioned it because I think today kids are taught and everybody is told by the left. There's no meaning in the universe. There's no purpose. There's no nothing. It's empty. And the truth is, that is wrong, actually, the universe is charged with meaning because it was created by God because we have a purpose for our lives and we need to re reconnect rediscover that purpose and especially hold it up for young men. Well, I thank you for reintroducing the subject of God into public discourse as a senator because I simply think it's inescapable. You can not have America. You can not have a life with meaning. Most of the good things that we have been taking for granted self government. You can not really have these things unless God is part of the narrative part of the story. Of course, it all comes from him, but I think that even people who would not see themselves as outwardly religious or particularly religious, they bought into that narrative over the decades and the centuries. It made sense. And when you do take God out of that narrative, things devolve to confusion. And you can't really be you can not have a life of purpose. You just said it. Unless you somehow understand these things, even if it's just on an intuitive cultural level, but that's, of course, what the elites are at war against. So I just want to thank you for being public about your faith. I want to ask you, when did you yourself become a Christian? Because I know you're very serious about your faith. Yeah, I had the great great benefit, great blessing of being raised by parents who knew the lord who still know the lord and I don't remember a time when they did not tell me about Jesus. So when I was 5, I can remember sitting on my dad's lap and praying to accept Jesus into my heart when I was 12, I made a more public confession of faith and really committed my life to the lord and then have tried to follow him to give my life to him. I was thinking of telling my boys the other night because we read through the action adventure Bible together and I was just telling them, you know, what is it the lord says to love the lord your God with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength. And Eric, that was my parents prayer for me as my boys grow, it is my prayer for my boys and I want them to know that purpose. I want them to know that passion because at the end of the day is Christians, of course, we live for the lord. And we know that that is the calling and purpose of our lives. And I hope that my voice will and my baby girl will feel that as well. Well, it is an amazing thing, really, to know that no matter what comes one's way, if you're walking with God, he is with you. He wants to help you. He gives you purpose. And I really think that the spike in suicides we're seeing in among young people among people in general in our nation has to do with that sense of purposelessness, that sense of defeat and despair that creeps in inevitably when you take God out of the equation, so it's vital that we have figures like yourself in public life who make it central..

"Read it. But let me ask you the first kind of dumb question one asks an author. What led you to write of all things a book titled manhood? Well, I've got two little boys at home. My boys are ten and 8, and then I've got a baby daughter as well, who's just now two, but really, it was me as a dad thinking about what's my responsibility toward my boys to help them grow into the men that God created them to be, that we need them to be. This country needs them to be and the challenges they face in that. So that's what started me on. Eric was thinking through that and thinking through the left's message to young men, especially, which is that if you're a man you're toxic, but if you're a man, you make America worse just by living. And I think we've got to counter that live by holding up models of healthy, strong, good men. Well, I wrote a book called 7 men a few years ago and then a sequel 7 more men thank you. Because of exactly what you just said. I said, we are living in a time where people are obviously very confused about what does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a woman? And my answer is, what is God's answer to that? I want to say, what does God put forward as his idea of a great man or a great woman? And that's very important because as you say, we're living at a time of tremendous confusion. So I want to thank you for using your prominent voice to draw attention to this issue. Well, it's my pleasure and it's much needed. And the approach that you talk about, that you took is exactly what I try to do in the book, which is to say, first of all, what is it that the Bible says? Because this is the part where the liberals always melt down, but it's just true, right? Is that our culture, our traditions of this country, our history, our grounded in the traditions of the Bible. So let's get back to basics. Let's say, what is it that the Bible says about what it means to be a good strong man? And what I do in the book is I just go through different stories in the Bible, then of the Bible and say, what can we learn from them about what it means to be a husband and a father and a warrior and a king? What's it mean to live a life that is in service to God in service to his plan and his purposes? And that's really what the whole book is about. Well, I just, you know, in our lifetimes, I don't think we ever thought we would see things get this crazy where people with straight faces are pretending that we don't know the difference between men and women or whether there is such a thing as men or women or whether men can become women parentheses, no obviously they can't or whether women can men know obviously they can't. My contention is consistently that pretty much everyone knows the basics, but the cultural elites are kind of gaming the system. They've got a loud voice and they're pretending like, you know, we've redefined some things and you need to go along with it. But it seems to me that the sense of your average American is please. You've got to be kidding. You know, I've got boys. I've got girls, I grew up in the world of reality. These things are not really, they can't be redefined. The question of what is a man or what does a woman is not actually up for grabs? And that's why you see parents all over the country just revolting against their kids being taught that they need to gender transition and their kids being taught that there's a thousand different genders or whatever it is or even worse being given therapies or prescribed treatment behind the parents back. And you see this everywhere, Eric. I mean, this is happening, as you know, all across the country, but parents are saying what you just said, wow, this is crazy. This is insane. Nobody believes that this is true, but the left does have a very powerful voice. They control the loudest institutions in our society. The corporate media, the entertainment industry, politics obviously right now. So I think we've got to push back against all of those lies and they are lies and say instead that no, there is mail, there is female, and when it comes to men, it's good to be a man. We need you as a man to step up to take on responsibility to be strong because that's how you change your life, your family's life, and also the destiny of this nation. It's interesting. I mean, I think, you know, this is where God comes into the picture. Men, young men need to hear someone say, hey, hey, it's God's idea that you're a man. It's not a coincidence. It's not a choice. It's God's idea. And when you go along with God's idea, he will bless you. He will help you. He will use you when you go along with his idea. When you act as though there is no God and it's nobody's idea, everything is up for grabs. Everything is relative. You sort of go into this kind of spiral. I think even introducing these ideas to young people is child abuse, it's confusing them in the most basic way. And part of what has to happen is parents need to fight back strongly because this really is just, you know, I will have to use the term demonic when you are talking to young children about these things. This is as inappropriate as anything you could talk to young children about. Frankly, no one has the right to do that except parents. And of course, parents wouldn't do it except the correct a lot of the nonsense that's being pushed in the schools..

"Is obviously talking about Robert Kennedy, junior on social media when he exposed the money connection between Fauci, Bill Gates, and what they call the bio security cartel. But this film tells the truth, which is why you need to see it. For free, did you hear that one? Okay, so now you probably didn't know this. Did you know that the NIH, the national Institutes of health, led by, it's chilling. It's chilling. Doctor Fauci and the NIH hold pharmaceutical patents. All right? So a lot of money involved, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are all invested financially in the vaccines. So you think, wow, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, they like control all the information they decide what's disinformation, who to block off of YouTube, the way they kicked us off of YouTube. But I mentioned you can watch the film for free. The real Anthony Fauci, it's a movie. You can watch it for free. So where do you go? You go to the real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. Now this is only available for a number of days, okay? This is a number of days you can watch it for free. So it's the real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. You gotta spell Fauci correctly, FAU, CI, the real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. I'm telling you I watched every minute of it. And when I watched it, and they said, oh, do you think they're thinking of advertising on your program? I said, you have no idea. I don't care if they advertise on this program. I want to tell my audience they've got to see the film. So I'm telling you, go to the real Anthony Fauci movie dot com. You can see it for free. I watched every minute of it. It is vitally important that you understand what's been happening. It's no different than with January 6th. You need to know what happened. Because it will change how you move through life once you understand that people have sold us down the river. So that's not a small thing. I also should say Albin that we continue our campaign with CSI. Yes. This is one of those things. You know, I don't even know how you can possibly overstate the situation. There is slavery in Sudan. Around the world, people are enslaved, we claim many of us to be Christians to say we want to help people. You don't need to be a Christian to have the wisdom to know that if you've been blessed and you can actually help someone in the right way, I'm not talking about giving a dollar to somebody who's going to use it on drugs on the street. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about using your money, giving your money to an organization that is going to be a good steward of your money. But CSI is freeing slaves in southern Sudan. We've given you the details at other points. But what they don't have is the money to do it because it costs $250 per person who's freed to get them out of slavery. They do this by buying cattle vaccines and trading bartering with some of these tribal herdsmen. These are radical Muslims who have these slaves, they kind of barter with them and then they have to bring these freed people into a life of freedom, which costs something to set them up. That's where you come in, folks. We want you to go to metaxas talk dot com, I don't know, other to say, then I pray that you will do that going to metaxas talk dot com. The banner is at the top. You give whatever you like, whatever you like will go toward freeing slaves in southern Sudan. If you can be extra generous, it will simply redound to the benefit of these poor souls who many of whom have been enslaved for their Christian faith. So you understand this is radical Muslims enslaving Christians because the Civil War in sedan in the 90s, many of them have been enslaved this.

"Folks, welcome to the Eric metaxas show, sponsored by legacy precious metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals, visit legacy p.m. investments dot com that's legacy p.m. investments dot com. Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to listen to a man of grace, sophistication, integrity, and whimsy. Oh well, so are we. But until such a man shows up, please welcome Eric my taxes hey there, it's Monday Alvin. They tell me it's Monday. It's Monday, I'm telling you that. My staff tells me that it's Monday. Actually, this is, we've got an exciting show today because in a few minutes, we're talking to one of the tiny tiny handful of heroes in American government today. Senator Josh hawley. And if you don't know who he is, you really should. There are a tiny handful of heroes. Senator Josh hawley is a profound Christian, but he's not the kind of Christian who confuses Christianity with being nice to the devil. He understands that he has a role in life to fight evil and he understands that there's a role for politicians in fighting evil in speaking truth. So we've got him today in our one that's coming right up. Senator Josh hawley, he is leading the way as a senator in trying to bring some of these absolutely anti American treasonous evil actors to justice, this is a big deal folks because you've got all kinds of Republicans who don't seem to care. They are just not the kind of people you want in a foxhole with you. Jim Jordan is a hero. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a hero, Lauren boebert is a hero. Josh hawley is a hero. The other day you heard Ted Cruz down at the border. You've got a few people willing to stick their necks out and to fight. Josh hawley is one of them. So we've got him in our one in our two today, this is the great contrast that we have in guests on this program, we're talking with our friend margarita muni about truth goodness and beauty. We're talking to her about the transcendent about God, she has a wonderful book out called the wounds of beauty, so it's really kind of the opposite end of the spectrum of what we do on this program. One is kind of current events and kind of hard hitting political stuff. Although Josh hawley is talking about a new book he's written on manhood, which actually cuts in both directions, right? That's one of these eternal things we need to talk about. And at the same time, suddenly it's a controversial hot button current events kind of topic. So anyway, that's today we've got that. We also want to announce, I am so excited about this. Some of you know Robert Kennedy junior wrote a book, the real Anthony Fauci. We did not get him on this program to talk about that book, but we had a number of other people talking about that book on this program. It's absolutely chilling. There is no way to unsee what you see when you are encountering when you encounter this kind of information. But not everybody is a reader. I myself did not read the book. But there is a new film out now, which I have just seen the whole film. It's a documentary called the real Anthony Fauci. And I want everyone in America to know what's been going on, to know what a deeply wicked person, Anthony Fauci, is and the people around him, what they have done. Now, you know, deeply wicked people often think they're doing good things. So I don't know where he stands with God, but I know that what he has done in terms of spreading disinformation. It is nightmarish. It is affected all of our lives. This is the key. It's affected all of our lives. So in this film, it exposes his alleged suppression of COVID treatments in favor of his highly profitable COVID vaccine. They have to say alleged, but if you've been following this, you understand that's what happened. That's why everybody was forced to take the vaccine because tremendously profitable for a lot of people. So the book was a sensation was on The New York Times Best Seller list for 17 weeks. But it is now a documentary as I just said, it's titled the real Anthony Fauci. Now, this is Kate, listen to this. They silenced RFK junior, okay? This.

"There are so many different stories to cover senator. Welcome back to the program and thank you again for taking the time. I'm going to play cut one 17 and then I'll let you riff so the audience can see you in action. Let's play cut one 17 please. So give me an answer. The FBI does not agree with your discipline. I'm not asking about the FBI. You are the attorney general. Give me your answer. Do you think that it was objectively reasonable and they followed your guidelines? In sending 20 to 30 armed agents to terrorize these people. Yes or no. The facts I have, which are those presented by the FBI are not consistent with your description. We're supposed to hate long guns and assault style weapons. You're happy to deploy them against Catholics and innocent children. Happy to. And then you haul them into court in a jury acquits him in one hour. I just suggest to you that that is a disgraceful performance by your Justice Department and a disgraceful use of resources. Amen, senator hawley, expand on that. Well, listen, Charlie, I mean, here's the thing. In Merrick Garland's Justice Department and then Joe Biden's America. If you want to execute somebody in the streets of this country gang style, they don't do anything. If you want to smuggle fentanyl across the border and engage in human trafficking, they turn a blind eye. But if you go to church, or if you consider yourself a traditional Christian or traditional Catholic or what have you, then they think that you're a terrorist and they treat you like one. This Justice Department sent 30 S.W.A.T. agents FBI agents to the home of this pro life demonstrator, a law abiding citizen in the early morning hours to do what to terrorize him. He was acquitted later by a jury of his peers in less than an hour. That shows you the priorities of this Justice Department. It's wrong and it needs to be exposed. Yeah, and exposing it is so important. And I'm sure that your staff and you are working behind the scenes to try to get more information from this DoJ, but senator at least the impression I'm getting is a smugness from Merrick Garland. No admission of taking responsibility or I don't want to say a mission of guilt, but a mission of wrongdoing or overreach. And his answer is such a non answer. I don't agree with your description. These are the facts of the fact senator, they came in hard. They came in with long guns, and so, I mean, senator, I'm just, I'm just confused, you know, what is it going to take for the fourth branch of government, Merrick Garland, in particular, to stop this criminalization of yes Christians of Catholics? Of people of faith and then not enforcing the law for the others, which I think is really important. It's almost anarcho tyranny, isn't it? Yeah, it really is. And I tell you what it will take Charlie will take exposure. It will take the constant bringing a beach sacks into the light, which is why, whenever Merrick Garland comes up on Capitol Hill, he needs to get the truth, shoved into his face. What these guys try to do is to try to hide it. And they use the corporate media, of course, to help them, which is what you do every day exposing this. We need exposure. We need to take these are the facts, set it out before the American people, because they try to lie about it, to symbol about it. Give you another example. The FBI wrote a memo this year just a few weeks ago saying that they really ought to recruit informants spies in what they call traditional Catholic parishes. Now I have no idea what they mean by that, but those are their words. I suspect they just need conservative. They want to recruit spies. Why? Because they say, well, these people, they're right wingers, you know, they could end up being bigger than being domestic terrorists. This is what is going on. Garland tried to run away from that as quick as he could when I brought it up. You got to drag this into the light and expose these people and show what they're doing. And when you do that, just like Arnold, he had no answer..

"You get podcasts. i'm melissa harris perry and it's politics day on the takeaway. Y'all question baffling the nation's capital last week. Negotiations around president biden's social infrastructure and environmental package have dominated. Dc this week on thursday ahead of his trip to europe biden announced the framework for the package. Which now comes in with a top line of about one point. Seven five trillion. So what's in and what's out. Well here's how the president put it. No one got everything they wanted including me. But that's compromise. That's consensus and that's what i ran on. The new proposal does not include a federal paid family and medical leave program or efforts to lower prescription drug pricing. also it does not include free community college for all and while it expands medicare coverage to include hearing hair it does not include vision or dental services. But what are you process of legislative wranglings. So unusual is that it's not a matter of partisan gridlock. Democrats are negotiating with themselves and the ones holding the most sway or the center. Right holdouts in the party and yes. You've heard their names before senators. Joe manchin of west. Virginia and kirsten cinema of arizona at this is frustrated many of the democratic colleagues. Some of whom have publicly questioned two senators motives for months. Here's representative katie. Porter at the end of september on msnbc until senator cinema and senator manchin are able to come up with what they want to do for their constituents to do for the american people until senators cinema stop speak cute and starts doing her job and leaving for the people of arizona. Were simply not going to be able to move the president's agenda forward representative bill hahn omar on democracy now just last week. All democrats are essentially on board except for these two were essentially doing the bidding of big pharma big oil and wall street and representative john. Paul chair of the congressional progressive caucus on msnbc on wednesday. They're also programs that are going off the table and yet we have two senators one who can say. I don't want paid. Leave a guy who can say i don't want paid leave another. Who can say i don't want to roll back. The trump tax cuts senator mansions motivations. Well they seem to be clear. He represents west virginia a state. Donald trump's won by thirty nine percentage points in two thousand hundred and it's also a state dominated by the coal industry. Cinema other hand is a first term democratic senator from arizona and president biden carried. Her state senate was known for rarely holding townhalls with constituents or taking questions from the press. She started her political career as a progressive democrat in arizona house of representatives but now is seen as one of the more conservative democrats in the us senate during her brief time in office. She's gained a reputation for being particularly inscrutable. It was the question baffling the nation's capital last week. What does kirstin cinema one last week. Five members of senator kirsten cinemas veterans advisory council publicly stepped down calling her one of the principal obstacles to progress rejoined now by one of those former members. Sylvia gonzales enders an air force veteran. Welcome to the takeaway. Sylvia hello and thank you very much for having absolutely. Let's just start by understanding the work of the veterans advisory council. Like what kinds of things did you do. And what are you. Why did you want to join in the first place. Well i wanted to join. Because i wanted to be a voice for women's veteran's issues and and represent The concerns that we had and just help us to understand. So is this like you. All are meeting regularly with her staff. Are you meeting with the senator. I just i know not. Everyone understands all the ins and outs of how sort of you know how a senator gained information. Well it's voluntary council but you do have to apply and be accepted to her council We were supposed to be having regular meetings but the pandemic did a upset that abed and we change to zoom. We you know. Tell her what we feel about. What's going on in the veteran community. We talk about veterans legislation. And what she's doing in those regards got it now before the decision to step down. I'm wondering if you had ever felt a sense of frustration in this work that you doing. Well you know veterans our citizens like everyone else and so our issues really. Overlap the general population as well. veterans are a very diverse organization of all different people. And you know we really feel that since we have put forward you know. Put our lives on the line that we want to make sure that veterans have protections for the incidents now of all the voter suppression. Laws are really going to affect veterans especially disabled veterans veterans with ptsd mail-in ballots. You know those are essential and also. Ptsd veterans cannot stand in hotlines outside around crowds without having some some consequences. So we're very concerned about that. Oh that's so helpful. I'm not sure that i've ever heard it framed. In particularly that way. I think we We hear frequently about. How some of these voter issues impacts kinds of communities but. I'm not sure i've ever heard it particularly framed around Concern for veterans So can you tell. Us what is your. What was your motivation for stepping down and given that it was a handful of you all did you have a conversation about it. I over these five individual decisions. No we we. It was a collaboration between all of us It was just a feeling of frustration that we had and then i reached out to some of the others and they mirrored the same concern so we really didn't know how we can reach her personally as far as the council. So you know this was what we felt that you know we were just making a statement that we were very concerned about these issues and that she wasn't listening to her constituents Do you feel like stepping down. Helped her to hear you wondering maybe what her response has been sent us. A voicemail of the senator of responding it sounded like a very polite kind of response. I'm just wondering how you heard that. I heard it as a simple acknowledgment. But not any addressing any of our concerns obviously. Us under his have large staffs. And so when. I hear you say that you were having trouble reaching her even though you were a member of the advisory council. I'm wondering if that is part of how the senator's office is run like is it just sort of multiple Gatekeepers in order to have a conversation or express your views. I really can't say exactly how it all works. We did have You know liaison that was supposed to be. You know our liaison but it's usually. It was usually a one way. Conversation of her sending information on what the senator wanted us to do whether it was to show up at an event or to just give some feedback on whatever. Small.

And then they gotta wait for william mainlander so the guys are looking for something. That's not there we'll and then you get sloppy and then you scramble and then all of a sudden you're goalie spring some leaks and i mean it looked jack. Campbell was not gonna stop the puck ninety five percent of the time right otherwise he was the best goalie in nhl history and so now stopping it at a boat idiot and a half percent which is a little low for him. But you've got some issues. And so i would say in the next week or ten days. You'd like to see the lineup. At least stabilize to a certain point and that includes matthews who sat out last game wall. All right when you look at the goaltending ill. There's been so much. Fanfare around jack campbell. Deservedly so many sets a franchise record in wins all dot to use your word leaky Against the winnipeg jets in the first period Play goal goes off his glove. Maybe he was spooked call. Connor shoots in a similar spot. Beats him clean enough concerned that you look david rettig and you go who they may depending on what happens with freddie anderson david rettig all all of a sudden becomes a real big piece. And i'll let you answer that but think about this too. i. I like the story of jack campbell. There's not much not to like but the history of jack accountable and like you. I like being around super positive people. And he is that and then some but in this market in a canadian market in general there can be too much of that right because you amplify the highs but the amplify the lows. You know money against montreal. He comes out and says. I was embarrassed by my effort. Like it's too much of one thing and then lays an egg against the jets in in the first period of thursday's game like i if i'm doing toronto. Pr i'm probably keeping him away from zoom media availabilities for a little bit. Just let things settle down. Okay so couple of things one. I think whether we're concerned about the goaltending or not. The leafs are because they traded a third round. Pick right for essentially a backup goalie right. The uncertainty over anderson's health been very protective of jack campbell's health as well. I think i think it is a concern because there just is uncertainty as for campbell..

I'm interested in finding I've known that sex industry sex slaves. Don't be a cover sexless. Okay, well off and I could before it I actually could before it. I'm not I'm not here to say everything. They haven't we wanted to do a strong minimum wage increase before sleepy Joe even knew that we had a minimum wage. I don't think he still do we have a minimum wage, but we were going to do that much stronger and much quicker and the Democrats stopped it. So I'm I'm in favor of it. I think you know, we would have done it a lot better and a lot more quickly off, but I'm in favor of it as long as it doesn't include Mar-A-Lago sex slaves. What what number would you have chosen for minimum wage? $15.05 down? Okay, like Alyssa's right? Like little like a price is right situation.
