The Federalist's Sean Davis Talks Liberal Ignorance
"Moral compromises i like that i don't like that sean davis from the federalist a great guy super smart guy you should be following him on social media his takes are always always uh... top of my list sean thanks for spending some time with us today appreciate thank you for having me on it's always a pleasure to be on with you of course i was at what you know when i come out about these big kind of global narrative conflicts kind of a thomas so conflict divisions thing you're the best guy to have on cuz you get this and you know i was just a little humor sean the beginning of the show but it's true i was talking about how you liberals know are generally dumb i mean i hate to say it i'm not talking about all democrats but they're just stupid like they just don't understand anything tax policy but it's deliberate and i brought it up because yesterday i was reading this tweet about covid death rates he did a meta analysis and apparently if you're under seventy the fatality rate is only zero point zero seven percent yet if you were to poll liberals liberals will tell you oh my gosh covid it's like a two thousand percent death rate if you ask them about unarmed black men being killed in the street they're like it's tens of thousands every single year the number is probably closer to ten it's just it's upsetting to me that we do our homework but we're fighting against people on the other side who are kept deliberately in the dark by our media and rely totally on ignorance it's true I mean do you recall the Reagan quote I'm gonna butcher it it was something like it's not that liberals are always wrong it's that they just know so much that isn't true and that's right and it's really true I mean I'm sure a lot of them are dumb incapable of understanding basic things but I think most are just ignorant and it's a function of having been sold lies and nonsense from the media that they get most of their information from I mean when you look at the news and all they talk about is George Floyd or Trayvon Martin or BLM of course you would assume that white cops are out there just shooting black people like every other day because that's all that's on the news that's the narrative they want you to believe and I think in large part because they consume completely bogus propaganda

The Left's Sinister Plan: They Need You Stupid and Ignorant!
"In an era of shortened attention spans the left is super tactical politically they need people stupid i mean this they need you dumb and ignorant if you're not dumb and ignorant they can never do what they can do you know what i don't wanna go out of order let's but let's go anywhere jim cut six if you would bill maher uncovered here's what i mean wanted for years to use emergency powers to be able to shut down the economy to show you what they can do when they're in charge fully weaponizing the economy shutting down sectors they don't like they have craved this power forever covid was the perfect vehicle to do it but what's the catch the catch with covid was simple it was never gonna work if you didn't believe covid was the biggest threat to your life ever so they can't have smart people because smart people would like well what's the fatality rate what's the or not how infectious is this that's what conservative ass gas they and were like wait we shouldn't shut the economy down for this thing is bad it's definitely gonna kill some people and that's horrible but this isn't worth shutting down the whole economy cost -benefit dumb liberals were like no way this is the deadliest thing ever it kills a thousand percent of people it's not even possible it doesn't ten thousand percent it's the deadliest virus ever folks it's like hantavirus and Ebola it's like that Dustin Hoffman virus from but outbreak what does that move tapa or whatever the hell it was this is the worst thing ever if you fell for that because you're dumb and because some charismatic lefty told you that you were doing a public good by sitting in your house and while rotting away this virus that had a fatality rate it turns out now which I'll get to later the in show when people under 70 of only 0 .07 they need you to be stupid people like Malay and Trump who cracked through the stupid divide and people start to listen to them they're afraid of that that's why it's not the policies that bother them it's the threat to their power from them play Bill Maher talking about exactly this Bill Maher is a lefty by the way we all know that he's not our friend but once in a while he'll stumble on the truth here's Maher talking about how liberals are just morons that don't know a damn thing about covid check this out but what about liberals you know the high information by the science people? In a recent Gallup survey Democrats did much worse than Republicans in getting the right answer to the fundamental question what are the chances that someone who gets covid will need to be hospitalized the answer is between one and five percent forty one percent of democrats thought it was over fifty percent another twenty eight percent put the chances of twenty to forty nine so almost seventy percent of Democrats are wildly off on this key question and also have a greatly exaggerated view the of danger of covid 2 and the mortality rate among children I'm gonna get back to that point later but I'm serious when I tell you this you you know I know don't like liberals I'm not hiding it liberals listening you don't like me either that's fine we don't have to like each

A highlight from James Lavish: Disaster in Bond Market Auction, Chinese Bank Hack, Bitcoin Price and ETFs
"It was ugly. I mean, it was a wake up call. And if you don't think that the Treasury was scrambling around wondering what the heck is going on, you're crazy.

Welcome back to the show. I'm doing a last minute episode with macro analyst James lavish, author of the information as newsletter. James, thanks so much for joining me. Oh, it's great to be here. Natalie, always good to talk to you. Well, before we go into this disastrous 30 year Treasury auction, which I want to learn all about, let's start with what happened last week because the Treasury made an announcement about how much it's going to need to borrow. So why don't you fill us in on that first? Yeah, so the Treasury has to have this refunding every single quarter and they announce what they're going to do. They kind of give the market a signal so people can prepare. The investors can can can get ready for the auctions that are going to be kind of coming up. And so last week there was there was the Fed was talking. They were giving their their decision on the rates. And on the same day, the Treasury was giving this release or going to release this information to the street and tell them what the plan was. Well, it was it's been so important. What's been going on in the US Treasury is that almost all of the spotlight was on this on Wednesday. It was not on Powell for the first time in a very long time. As you know, you've been you've been watching this for a while. And and so it was it was pretty surprising. But in reality, it's not that surprising to people like me and some other investors who have been watching the bond market pretty closely recently. And what happened was they announced that they were going to borrow seven hundred and seventy six billion dollars, a few billion dollars less than the market expected. That's number one. And so the market fourth quarter. Right. That's the fourth quarter. And so the market got took that is OK. That's that's good. So maybe they have spending under control. But just remember that we are running a two trillion dollar deficit right now. So that's that spending is not under control. But the second thing they did is they announced that they would be borrowing on the shorter end of the curve. They would continue to be putting out T -bills and shorter term notes so that they would be able to draw capital out of the reverse repo facility. We'll talk about that in a minute. But basically, they were saying they're going to be borrowing on the short end of the curve, not as much on the long end of the curve, like they're not going to be borrowing at first. They're not going to be issuing 30 year bonds, quite as as many of them as the market expected. In reality, they announced they were going to borrow another twenty three billion and or twenty four billion. And the past auction was like twenty three billion. It's in line with and maybe a little bit less than what the street expected. Remember, everything that the market works around expectations. You've seen this happen all the time. If a company comes out with dismal earnings, but they were a little bit less worse than people expected, the stock could actually go up. It's just the way that the street works.

A highlight from Taiwan's Next Embracing Bitcoin?! | EP 863
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin. It's going on forever. You're against Bitcoin. You're against freedom. Yo, what's up? We are back. We're back for another episode of Simply Bitcoin. And today is an interesting story. I did have to do some deep dive for this one. So game theory is heating up in China, guys. The first reading of Taiwan's crypto bill passes. And depending on the source, Taiwan might be on the verge of making Bitcoin legal tender January 24th. It almost seems like this is happening. It's almost like it's inevitable. And Taiwan is embracing Bitcoin. And we all know the saga between China, that we know that we won China policy. We've been covering this all year. And we know how many times China banned Bitcoin. They banned mining. We've seen even Taiwan themselves try to ban Bitcoin. But of course, you can't ban Bitcoin. You can only ban yourself from Bitcoin. And even this week, on Mainland, Hong Kong has been mulling over whether they are going to embrace an ETF as well. So it really makes you wonder. And if you go back for a couple episodes, Niko and I went over this, the idea of maybe China is using different proxies to embrace Bitcoin after officially banning Bitcoin. The dip last we saw, I think that was 2021 now, it's all a blur at this point. Some days they're banning it. Some days they're embracing it. Well, it seems like China or Taiwan, forgive me, is about to make Bitcoin legal tender. And remember, one of the IRLs we did, we had a friend come on here and I'm blanking on exactly which one it was. But he said basically that what they mean when they say crypto is really Bitcoin and they do not talk about what they have under their mattress. So whenever you're hearing crypto come out from the Asian countries, from China in particular, remember that they know what we know. It is Bitcoin only. And there's Bitcoin and then there's other cryptos. Anyways, Bitcoin's global game theory chess match is playing out in real time, guys. And as a Bitcoiner, you just love to see it. The Mexican standoff is continuing to get spicier. It's continuing to heat up. And it's going to be very interesting to see which countries get left behind, which countries don't embrace hard money. And also in that same vein, which countries are fighting their citizenry. And as we always say, forcing them to have fun staying poor. Anyways, welcome to Simply Bitcoin. We are your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution. We cover breaking news, culture and nomadic warfare. We bring on Bitcoiners from all around the world, from the biggest names to the everyday Bitcoiner. We got them all and we will be your guide through the separation of money and state. And of course, I am not here alone, guys. I am here with Dell, the funky hodl sapien. How are you doing this morning, Dell? Good. I'm dandy. I'm chilling, relaxing, moisturized in my own lane, sitting in a 45 gallon tub of lotion right now. It feels pretty luxurious. Absolutely love it. OK, well, Dell, what are we going to cover on the culture today? We're going to cover that you can't really stop the Internet. You can't stop things from happening the way you want it to. I imagine most of the people that come to this channel are interested in Bitcoin surviving. That's my assumption. There might be some people that come pass by like, oh, what's this all about? But I get the impression that the regulars that I see in the chat, you're Roman, you're wine a kiss. Tyler Durden, what I'm not going to try and talk for wine a kiss. He's a he's a he's a strange cat. That one is people that I see in day in and day out. They're people that are they understand Bitcoin to some degree. They like it to some degree. And they're yeah, thumbs up to that Bitcoin thing. But the idea that it could die or shut down is not something that a lot of us think about all that much. We're like, oh, it can't happen. But here's a question for you, Opti. If you were given a challenge, let's say let's say somebody comes along, Michael Saylor, whatever anybody that you know has the money to say, I'm going to give you a million dollar bounty to shut down Bitcoin. Could you do that? You think you could? Not for a million. There's literally a half a trillion dollar bounty on Bitcoin. You got to you got to you got to put those numbers up. Well, like, do you think you could do it at all? Me personally? No. Yeah. Yeah, exactly. And so the idea that there is some individual out there or group of people that can shut it down is preposterous. But yet there's still and we're going to play this clip. People out there that are honestly, they're relatively smart people in many fields and there's a lot of really smart people that don't understand Bitcoin. It's like shut down. Shut down the Internet. What are you going to do? Go in. People, people are concerned about that, Del. That is definitely on people's minds. Well, I get that. But why? Like, tell me how that happens. Like, walk me through exactly how how it how that would work. Like, please. Like, if you can do it, if somebody can do it, I truly as much as I would like to see tomorrow, would like you would like to see somebody shut down Bitcoin. So we're going to be talking about that in the culture. Like, you can't do it. Like, I want you to if you can, if somebody in chat can do that, by all means, go and do it. Because we need to know that that's a vulnerability when we need to know how that could happen. And oh, wow, there's a guy that's in the simply Bitcoin chat that has the ability to go and flip a switch and shut off Bitcoin. That we should know about that. And I mean, that'd be so funny. Someone in the chat just shuts it off. Anyway, anyway, side tangents. I mean, we even see it and we hear this all the time. I hear this all the time when I talk to my normie friends out there. They're like, what if, you know, like in twenty seventeen, it was like, what if China bans Bitcoin? And like they did it and it didn't stop Bitcoin. I am convinced that every three letter agency around the world, that nation states have also tried to attack Bitcoin and they continue to try to attack Bitcoin. But they can't stop this. They cannot stop digital money for the digital world. And even if the even if we got like some weird by chance EMP or something that shut off all of electricity, we will never go back to a time without the Internet. I am fully convinced of that. The Internet is something that that is ubiquitous with the modern world. It put a pause on things. If people talk about that, like, oh, well, what about. OK, well, just imagine if things that are escalating over in the Middle East and then the whole Russia, Ukraine thing, like imagine things really take off. And they detonate a nuke in the atmosphere over every country in the world and all the Internet goes out. What about your Bitcoin then? Like, do you even hear what you're saying? Like, imagine that scenario and the thing that is going to be on people's minds is food, shelter, is my family safe? And then probably after the first 24 hours, where can I get a I'm just going to say it, a hand job where where the sex workers like where where can I go and trade these bullets that have been stocking up for, you know, a little me time with with Old Destiny over there? And I do mean old because she was in the business for a hot minute and she's looking a little more now, but she's got the experience. And that's what you're going to want to go to when times are tough. You're going to want to go to the person that knows how to get you to that happy place. So, yeah, you're going to check in on Destiny and give her some bullets for some fun times. But you're not going to be thinking about Bitcoin. You're not going to be thinking about all my cat pictures and all the trad wives on Twitter talking about how they're grass feeding their goats. No, you're not going to be paying attention to any of that. You're gonna be like, what do I need to survive? That's it. That is that is it. That's all you're going to be paying attention to. So this idea that, oh, what happens to your Bitcoin? It's like, go fuck yourself. What are you talking about? Listen to yourself. Is grandma alive in a nursing home? Because there's no oxygen on. What's your first concern if the nukes go off and there's no Internet Opti? Is it is my note still on? No, it's thinking about people in my local community and can I survive? Exactly. Exactly. All right. Well, this is going to be a spicy one. I can already tell this is going to be a spicy one. Let's get into the show, guys. This time seeds do it yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper. Don't store your generational wealth on paper. Paper is prone to water damage, fire damage. You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth, titanium. Your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps. And once your words are in, they aren't going anywhere. No risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere. Titanium stamp seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire. They're also crush proof, waterproof, non corrosive and time proof. All things that paper is not allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for the long haul. Stamp your seed on stamp seed. Yeah, the chat. You guys are wild. Love you guys. Anyway, we made this easy for you. Scan the QR code. Make sure your seed phrases backed up on something stronger than just a piece of paper in your sock drawer. Make sure it's backed up on titanium, guys. This is the way scan the QR code. Get yourself a stamp seed kit. And we have been in the talks of getting a simply Bitcoin branded one. But maybe maybe you don't want that OPSEC unfriendly version. But anyways, scan the QR code. Go check it out. Get yourself one. Stamp your seed in titanium. All right, guys. Anyways, we're over here on the numbers. We're at Clark Moody's dashboard. Of course, my favorite number is the block height. We are currently at eight hundred and fifteen thousand eight hundred and eighty six. Take talk next block. Honey, bad you don't care. Blocks keep coming in. We are what? Twenty four thousand one hundred and fourteen blocks away from the halving roughly around April 20th of twenty twenty four. So it's happening in time, guys. We know exactly what's happening with the monetary policy that is Bitcoin. You love to see it. Bitcoin is my stable coin. Bitcoin is stability. Anyways, the current price on Bitcoin is thirty five thousand three hundred and forty dollars per Bitcoin. The Moscow time, a .k .a. how much your fiat dollars worth, a .k .a. how much Bitcoin you can buy for a single U .S. dollar is two thousand eight hundred and thirty cents per dollar. The percentage of total Bitcoin that will ever be issued is ninety three point zero three percent. The market cap and fiat terms of Bitcoin is six hundred and ninety billion dollars or six hundred ninety point three billion dollars. The realized monetary inflation of Bitcoin taking fiat currencies to school is one point seventy four percent. It's going to get cut in half. Well, I think it's going to slowly. Is it going to get cut in half? I think it's going to cut in half. I think that's what the halving does to it. Anyways, Bitcoin versus gold market cap is currently at five point two seven percent. We are only at five point two seven percent of the gold market cap. The hard money gang. We're coming for gold. Gold market cap is ten trillion dollars. Only five percent of that, guys. And you guys are bearish out there. Couldn't be me. Can't relate. Anyways, the total public lightning capacity is five thousand three hundred and five point zero seven BTC. The hash rate has been going absolutely parabolic. Of course, this is just a rough guesstimate of what is going on on the Bitcoin network. But something is happening and people are uploading and turning on a lot of A6. The last 90 days, we are at four hundred and twenty point one exahashes. The pending fees. Oh, my goodness. It's spiking right now. Eleven point four four BTC, at least according to the mempool that Clark Moody is connected to. We've been telling you for a while. You wanted to make sure that you are consolidating your UTXOs because things are going to get crazy. This will probably cool down a little bit. I think I did hear that there's some like ordinal BRC 20 stuff going on right now. Yeah. So that's probably why we're seeing this spike right now in the fee market. So once it gets a little cooler, oops, oops, sorry. It gets a little cooler. Not wrong, though. Yeah, not wrong. Once you once you get a little cooler in the fee market, I suggest you guys take the opportunity to consolidate your UTXOs. Make sure that you have good UTXO hygiene. Anyways. All right, guys, I'm going to connect last night's TTO that I did with CJ. I hope you guys watch that. I do have it up here for you guys to show you that you need to go watch this. And I took a little piece out of there. But here we are. We got Neil Kashkar. And remember who he is. He's the crazy guy that was coming out when we were going through the the, you know, the flu pandemic. And he was telling us that they can print unlimited money. And they clarified that question. And we got the memes of him with crazy eyes, like, wait, so you're telling me you can print unlimited money? And he said, yes, that's exactly what I'm telling you. Well, here he is again. And if you listen to last night's TTO. And you will listen to this this morning. You really start to realize just how detached these quote unquote elites are, how detached the Fed is from reality. You really would ask yourself what is going on. And again, I reference the white paper constantly on here because it's literally in the first paragraph of the white paper. Satoshi was so prescient when it came to this because he saw the fundamental problem of the fiat system. It is its trust based system, inherent trust that you need to just trust that these people know what they're doing. And we're seeing in real time that people still seem to trust them. And if you look at the data. There is no reason to trust them. Anyways, Neel Kashkari in this little video here goes, I'm not seeing a lot of evidence that the economy is weakening. And he discusses market expectations for an interest rate cut by the central bank next year. So let's just listen to him and remember the idea that the only reason the system is continuing to hobble along as it is, is because people out there still believe these people in the suits that they know what is going on. Trust the experts. They know exactly what's going on. Trust the guy in the suit on the television telling you that they have the economy under control, that interest rates are under control, that the Fed knows where we're going. And if you really look at the data, it may be completely different and telling you a different story. Anyways, let's listen to this, guys. You said that people want certainty and that you can't give it to them. And I understand that. But people don't just want certainty. They also want some sort of guiding philosophy. Do you think that Fed Chair Powell has outlined some sort of guiding philosophy on where the bar is to cut rates, on where the bar is to raise them further? Well, I think he's articulated very clearly that we're committed to getting back to 2 % inflation, right? There's been some chatter amongst economists that maybe we should raise the inflation target. I think he's done a great job saying that is not on the table. We're not going to do that. We're going to get inflation back to 2%. And we're going to let the data guide us. We've moved very aggressively. We've made a lot of progress on inflation. We're not done yet, meaning inflation is not back to our target. And if we need to do more, we will. There seems to be a feeling in markets that the bar to cut rates has been lowered over the past week or two weeks. That suddenly, not only are we reaching a pause, and have we seen a peak in the Fed funds rate, but that also the Fed will cut next year, maybe surgically. Neil Dutta is talking about that. He's coming up next. Do you want to push back against that? Do you think that the bar to cut is still just as high as it was? I have no idea where market participants are getting that. There's no discussion amongst me and any of my colleagues about when we're going to start preparing to cut rates. The only thing that's been talked about at all is that at some point, when inflation is well on its way back down, if we didn't back off a little bit, the real rates would be getting tighter and tighter and tighter. And that's real, but that's math. But is there enough weakness currently in the market, in the economy, I should say, to give you that sense at this point? Look at the last GDP print. I mean, does anybody look at that and think, oh my gosh, the economy? For the last 12 months, GDP has been very strong. The labor market continues to be quite robust. Yes, the unemployment rate has ticked up to 3 .9%, but we've also seen a huge surge of labor supply, which is really positive, come online. So I'm looking at this. I'm seeing consumers that are strong. By the way, my airplane that I came here on was 100 % full yesterday. It's going to be 100 % full today. I'm not seeing a lot of evidence that the economy is weakening.

We did Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, me, Chris Ryan, Van Lathan, it was a wonderful experience for all of us. Van looked at Chris at one point and he said, everything I do, I do it all for you. Oh no, that was Bryan Adams, but we had a great time. Coming up on this podcast, I'm gonna do an NBA Power Poll at the top because there's no games as I'm taping this on Tuesday. So let's, where are we after two weeks? I tried to fly through this. I limited myself to 22 minutes. I think I went two minutes over, but I flew through it, tried to get off as many comments as I possibly could. And then our old friend Malcolm Gladwell is gonna come on and do some sports hour stuff. There's some things that he's noticed about direction sports are going in that he doesn't like, and we're gonna try to fix it. So that's the podcast, first, our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, I'm gonna throw an NBA Power Poll at you. I'm not sure I'm gonna do this every Tuesday, but I definitely wanna do this some Tuesdays. I'm gonna go through all 30 teams as fast as possible. And I'm gonna throw things out that I feel like are important when necessary. Pot shots, important comments, things I've noticed, some fake trades, you've known me for a while. It's gonna be all the typical stuff. Going backwards from 30 to one, I'll give you the groups as we go. The first group is called the Dregs. That's Washington number 30. They are 30th in defense. And the only reason they're 30th in defense is because we only have 30 teams. I actually think there's some way they could have been 36th in defense. They're the only team in the entire league that I do not wanna watch on league pass for any reason at all. They're one and five, 15 .6 point differential against them. Shoot this team into the sun. I cannot believe House thought this team was gonna go over 24 wins. They might not go over 14 wins. They're awful. I never want them on my TV. Next group, probably the lottery. I say probably, but I'm gonna zip through these teams and then go back to somebody. 29 Utah, 28 Portland, 27 Detroit, 26 San Antonio, 25 Charlotte, who is way more fun than I expected they would be to watch, and 24 Chicago. It just feels like the lottery's in the future for all these teams. I wanna talk about San Antonio really quick. Three and four, kind of a sneaky, tough schedule. They played Phoenix twice, the Clippers, Dallas, that goofy Indiana team, Houston, and Toronto. They're minus 8 .6 point differential because they've gotten blown out a couple of times, and they're 29th on defense, which I was surprised by per 100 possessions. The thing that I wanted to point out here, because this one Benyama thing is super important. This is the best teenager that's come into the league, at least since LeBron. We can debate. LeBron, I think in year two, for two months at least, was a teenager when he was putting up 27, seven, and seven. When he started his 27, seven, seven cycle. Wembe might be the best teenager I've ever seen. They're starting Jeremy Sohan at point guard, and Pop's been transparent about this. No, no, we know we're gonna take some lumps. We're trying to figure this out. I went to the game when they played the Clippers, I talked about it in a previous pod, and it was just an absolute debacle, watching poor Sohan try to run the offense, bring the ball up. Now we're seeing teams starting to pressure them because he's not a point guard. He's a small forward. There's crazy stats now. Trey Jones, just by being on this team and not being Jeremy Sohan, is now one of the best advanced metrics point guards of all time. Right now, his per 100 on -off is plus 28 .3 because Sohan is minus 22 .7. That's how disparate the two things are. Which brings me to my point, this is too important. You have the best teenager maybe ever. You have one of the best league pass players already in the entire league in Wimby. I have no idea how long he's gonna stay healthy, knock on wood, hear me knock really loud. I just got my dog going. No, that was me, dumb ass. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is on Indiana, and they have Halliburton, who's averaging a 24 -12. He's awesome. They have Nembhard, who's great as a backup. McConnell's like, he's 13 minutes a game. He's clearly a trade piece for them. Just go get him. I'm not saying San Antonio has to make the playoffs, but they need to be entertaining, and Wimby needs to play with point guards. He clearly needs just to play off people, high screens, all that stuff. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is my choice. They have all their own firsts. They're not gonna trade those obviously, but they have some goofy picks. They have Charlotte's top 14 protected first. They have a pretty good Chicago first that I wouldn't give up. They have a first swap with Boston. There's ways to do this. I would just put that Charlotte pick next year on the table and just grab them because you guys hit the lottery. Literally, with Wimby -Dyama, literally hit the lottery. You hit the lottery and you hit the lottery. Get to do two point guards. We're not asking for much here. I wanna watch this guy. I wanna enjoy him play basketball. All right, next section is panic time. Number 23, Memphis. They're one and six. They finally got out to Schneider. And number 22, Sacramento, who lost twice to Houston in three days by 18 and 25. No Darren Fox for either game. Panic time in this respect. I know we're six games in the season, seven games in the season, but the West is one of those things where you're gonna look up and the car is left. The car has left the driveway and your family is gone. You're gonna be basically Kevin and home alone if you don't get your shit together. And I don't even wanna be two games under 500 in the West. That's how deep and good the West is. So when you're one and six, like all of a sudden two and 12, two and 13, Sacramento could all of a sudden be three and nine. I would just be nervous constantly. This is not like last year when the Lakers started out two and 10 and ended up making the playoffs. Nobody is doing that this year. The cutoff line is gonna be 46 wins. Memphis looks, they just can't score. And I think it's gonna be really, we talked about this verno last week. It's gonna be really hard for them to crawl back and be at least like 11 and 14, something like that by the time Ja comes back. The Sacramento thing, we predicted this when we did the over -under preview, like the conference is way better and they stayed basically the same. And now Fox is hurt. So it can take Fox going out for 10 games and all of a sudden you're not even in the playing game. I would just be nervous, so it's both of those teams. Again, it's early. Next group, friskier than we hoped. We have number 21, Brooklyn. Ben Simmons averaging almost 11 rebounds and seven assists a game. And yet you can't play him at crunch time, bizarre. Number 20, Orlando. Number 19, Houston. Number 18, Indiana. And number 17, Toronto. Just quickly on Houston, a delightful league pass team. I had no idea. It's like being at a buffet dinner and somebody brings like some, have you ever had a fried oyster? It's like, great, I'll try that. And then it's delicious. They play hard. I like watching them. And I did not expect a Shungun to be a potential all -star, but that's where we are. They're three and three. Again, they beat Sacramento twice, we'll see. But Orlando at number 20. Every time I do this, I'm gonna have a BS all -star of the week. I used to do this when I wrote my column back in the day. I used to call them the Bill Simmons all -stars, just people that I just liked for whatever reason. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't really know fully what he is. He tries harder than everybody on every other team. He really gives a shit. He feels additive in all these different ways. And yet at the same time, he'll absolutely like airball a three in one of the biggest moments of the game. But that guy cares. I watched a game where he got this hustle rebound. Can't remember who they, they lost at the buzzer. Get this hustle rebound and dribble back out and took a three and missed it and put his jersey over his head for like the next minute and a half. I actually think he might've been crying. He was so upset they lost. He is the most competitive random guy in the league. I love Jalen Suggs. Oh, as Saruti said, it's the Laker game. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't know what he is. He might just end up being like a seventh man on a championship team at some point. He's gonna have a moment on a good team. I don't know if Orlando's gonna be the team, but it's gonna happen for that dude. I also really like Anthony Black more than I thought, but we'll see. It's early for this team. Palo hasn't gotten going. Somehow they're four and three. We'll see when the schedule gets harder. Toronto at number 17, just the Lakers miss Schroeder. And I like what Schroeder's doing in Toronto. They're three and four, but they easily could be five and two. I've been watching them because I have their over under, I bet on. And I like where Toronto's at. I think they're better than they were last year. I think they're at least a playing team. Number 18, Indiana though. So their second in offensive rating and 25th in defense. In the 25th, I was actually surprised it wasn't worse. They can't guard anybody. They're shooting 43s a game. Their top six guys are all over 40 % three point shooting. They're kind of like the 80s Nuggets, but with threes. And they just play with a certain pace. And some days it's going to be bad. Like the Celtics put 155 points on them and it probably could have been 160 if they'd made some shots. Hal Burton's special. He's a 24 -12 this year. But the crazy thing about their offense is that Matherin's been terrible. And Matherin was a guy that they were like, this is going to be our guy. He's making a leap. We're going to trade Buddy Heald. We got to give the card keys to Matherin in that spot. And he's been bad. And their offense has still been pretty good. This is a team that anytime you see them, I don't know if you bet basketball, but if they're like plus 11, plus 12, it's like they could beat anybody any night. I'm just telling you. I'm not saying they're going to win a round in the playoffs, but just night to night, that's a team that they could just go 22 for 45 from three, make some shots. And Hal Burton, they actually should be five and two. Hal Burton blew the last possession against Charlotte the other night. But I've enjoyed watching them. I've watched an insane amount of basketball, by the way. All right, next group, the wildcards. I don't have a lot to say about these teams, but we'll go in order. Number 16, New Orleans, just seem jinxed. I'll come back to them in a second. Number 15, Cleveland. I want to see them with Garland and just, I want to watch them for a couple of weeks. I like the Struce edition, but we'll see. The Knicks, they're three and four. Nice win against the Clippers. The Randall thing continues to be nuts. Now he's taking out guys in the other team. Clippers 13, just traded for Harden. We talked about the Knicks and Clippers last week. Look, the Clippers, they played one game and they got killed by the Knicks. They're worse. I told you that last week. Still feel that way. Guess what they can't do now? Any transition stuff. The Knicks, 26 to six in fast break points last night. Rebounding. They got out, rebounded by 17 by the Knicks. Harden just brings so many things that you don't want in a starting five, but then he brings the great passing and the scoring and he can have the ball all the time. They don't need anyone to have the ball all the time because they have all these other guys who need the ball. I just don't like the trade. I continue to not like it and I don't understand it. I actually liked the team they had before they made the trade. So congrats again, Clippers. Number 12, Miami. 28th offensively. Kind of feels worse when you watch them. They haven't had their full team for a couple weeks. I'm not gonna judge them at all until December. I'm not gonna judge Dallas either. Dallas I have at number 11. They're six and one, fourth in offense. They've had a really easy schedule. So that's why, let's see what happens. Their one loss is to Denver. Let's see what happens when they play some tough teams all in a row and have one of those four games in six nights or three on the road. One of those situations. But they are in better shape than they were last year. And you look at the Grant Williams piece, which I'm not spiteful when I watch my old players. I'm rooting for Grant Williams. It's like seeing somebody you dated that you still have a good relationship with. It was nice to see him do well for them. Derek Lively seems like they have something. We talked about him last week, but he's at least like a rim runner in that kind of Nick Claxton world, but maybe a little more violent alley -oop or a little young Clint Cappelli. The Kyrie thing is the piece that I'm really interested in this. He finally had a good game last night, but for this season, 24 % shooting, 3 .8 free throws a game, which are always the two numbers to look at with Kyrie. What's he shooting threes? Is he getting in the line? And so far it's been neither, but he seems happy. When you watch them, they've been a surprisingly pleasant watch, and he seems like in a good spot. So I don't want to jinx it because as annoying as he's been over the years, and you know my stance on Kyrie, I just don't trust him. And I just feel like a seven -year track record of imploding kind of has to start to mean something after a while, but it is fun to watch him play basketball. And it does feel like he's got a specific spot on this team. They don't have to rely on him too much. It's very similar to where he was in 15 and 16 and 17 with the Cavs where he could kind of float in and out like a cat with LeBron. It's like, I'm feeling it. Oh, all right, let's give Kyrie the ball. The shooting going down though, it's a small sample size, but they also haven't been playing tough teams yet. And I'm just monitoring that because with guards, it can kind of sometimes go sideways pretty fast, and you don't realize it happened until after it happened. Just quickly going backwards to number 16, New Orleans, because they lost Ingram, they lost McCollum already. And they have this Hawkins who they drafted that everybody liked coming out of the draft, but the fact that he can play right away has actually kind of saved them a little bit. I just, I still feel like we need to do some sort of ceremony or something with them. Like we need the people from the Conjuring to just do something with New Orleans basketball. It just shouldn't be this bad every year. Your team shouldn't have two, three major injuries every year. You should have good luck at some point. And this goes back to the seventies. Remember, when they moved, when they became the New Orleans Jazz, their first major, major giant trade was for Gail Goodrich with the Lakers. They had to give up two first rounders, and he immediately blew out his Achilles. He played, I'm gonna say, less than a season. And one of the picks turned out to be Magic Johnson. So that's where we started with New Orleans, and it's been awful ever since. Nothing good has happened in this team other than they've won a couple of lotteries, but even the lotteries they won, the Davis, Anthony when they were in Charlotte before they got to New Orleans, they bring him to New Orleans and he wants to leave. And then they win the Zion thing, which seemed like the luckiest thing that ever happened to them. And meanwhile, we're still waiting for him to play two straight months. So Conjuring people, something. We need something to happen with that team. All right, the top 10. We're at a good pace right now. Where are we at? Yeah, feeling good. This is working. Young and hungry is the next thing. We got Oklahoma City at number 10 and Atlanta at number nine. If you remember, Atlanta was one of the, these are the two teams I was going nuts for before the season for their over -unders. I love the Atlanta over -under. I love the New Orleans over. And I like what I've seen from both. OK sees four and three, Atlanta's four and three. Atlanta's sixth in offense. And that's notable because Trae Young has sucked again shooting west. He's 28 % from three. Last year's 33 % from three. This might not be happening the next Steph Curry thing. Like what age does he have to hit where we have to go? All right, he's not the next Steph Curry. Because I think I hit that age last year at age, when I was age 53. I think I hit that for Trae. They killed Minnesota, which is notable. We'll talk about Minnesota in a second. But they really, I watched that game and they really, really, really handled them. I like this Atlanta team. And I think there's a path for them to be a three or a four seed if Trae can get going. And then OKC, trade for a big already. You're a guy short, like stop. You guys have a chance to be like a 50 win team. What are you doing? I want to see what's going on with Josh Getty in about two weeks. Whether it looks different than it has for the first couple of weeks here. I don't like, he's not going in the free throw line at all. 1 .3 a game. 26 % three point shooting, which we knew. He can't shoot threes. But there's also like the Chet piece of it. Seems like it's throwing them off. And I've watched games where they've taken them out at crunch time.

"Hello, and welcome to the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast, brought to you by Swann Bitcoin, the best way to buy and learn about Bitcoin. I'm your host, Alex Dancic, and we're excited to announce that we're bringing the Cafe Bitcoin Conversations Twitter Spaces to you on this show, the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast, Monday through Friday every week. Join us as we speak to guests like Michael Saylor, Lynn Alden, Corey Clifston, Greg Foss, Tomer Strohleit, and many others in the Bitcoin space. Also be sure to hit that subscribe button. Make sure you get notifications when we launch a new episode. You can join us live on Twitter Spaces Monday through Friday, starting at 7 a .m. Pacific and 10 a .m. Eastern every morning to become part of the conversation yourself. Thanks again. We look forward to bringing you the best Bitcoin content daily here on the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast. That's true, too. That's the crazy part about it, is I get people who DM me and they say it both ways. They're like, yo, I liked it better when you guys are dropping F bombs. I don't necessarily think that it's the profanity that people really enjoy. I think it's the passion, and typically the profanity comes out when we're being really passionate about what we're talking about. Unless we're just being lazy and then there's a swear word, four of them, in a single sentence. Am I ever going to live this down? Ever? I mean, look at your little avatar, Peter. You're literally swearing 24 -7 with that guy. That's just a personal protest and my way of expressing my freedom of speech without being particularly offensive. People don't have to look at it. It's kind of hidden. You're swearing to all the deaf people in the audience? No, actually what I'm swearing to is the Fed and the statists and the people who want to impinge upon my rights, the over -reachers and all those. I'm a liberty kind of guy. You know what's interesting to me about Bitcoin is that if you have freedom -minded people and then they find Bitcoin and then they realize, oh my gosh, there's actually a solution, the level of intransigence rises. The level of, look, I'm not going to put up with your shit rises. The more Bitcoin a person accumulates and they start to develop F .U. money, they have a stack of F .U. money, the intransigence rises and it's like, look, I'm just not going to put up with your nonsense anymore. That's actually a good thing. I think people need to stand the heck up and say what's right and not put up with nonsense. So I am a distinguished Toastmaster, Alex, and I did just count one of your swear words. OK, we usually we usually count filler words, but today it's swear words. Toastmasters is weird. Just saying. Alex is busy listening to the tape. No, I have clients texting me right now because people are trying to get in position and I'm like literally like if I go off mute and then, you know, you know how it works. A call came in, then a text. They're getting in position to purchase SATs at a higher price. Getting in position to buy SATs. I mean, dude, like for weeks now, ever since we started seeing these moves, it's basically nonstop. People buying Bitcoin, man. The price action is pretty fucking bullish, I must say, if I get my TA leaves hat out, you know, those leaves are looking pretty bullish to me. Yeah, I'm I'm I'm pretty bullish and I think there's a lot of factors in play right now that we'll talk about also in a little bit. Let me enter the show real quick. So we're listening to Cafe Bitcoin. Welcome. Thanks for being here. This is episode four hundred and seventy shout outs to our supporters on Fountain and Noster Nests. Our mission here is to provide signal in a sea of noise teaching people on this planet seven billion plus of them. Why there's hope because of this bright orange future we call Bitcoin. Today we're going to be covering endless money printing, Hong Kong ETFs, Bitcoin ETFs, Big Mac coin and other interesting developments. But welcome up to everybody who has joined us. We've got Mickey up here. Terrence, both Terrence's. Why Bitcoin only? Good morning and welcome. Good morning from beautiful Santa Marta, Colombia. Hey, like Colombia, are you visiting or I mean, you don't need to dox yourself, but are you permanent or are you visiting? He kind of already did. He told us where he's at. Yeah, no, I'm traveling, man. Just checking out South America, soaking in the South American lifestyle for a bit, saving lots of money, eating some cheap steak and building Bitcoin projects, having a great time. It's a I recommend it to everybody who hasn't just coming down here, just seeing what it's like south of the states is really incredible. I spent the first six months of the year or so in Mexico, then moved downward. And it's an awesome time and a good place to build cool stuff, learn about Bitcoin and spend less money and meet lots of awesome people and hear great stories, too. Yeah, I agree with that. If you have the option to do it, man, and you're not like tied, tied down anywhere like that would be a great way to be. Save money, stack stats, great lifestyle. And people really don't think about how much money you actually save, because I remember that the main thing that kept me so stuck in the U .S. for so long was just having this thought in mind that traveling is synonymous with spending tons of money. But once you once you get a plane ticket for a decent price, all you have to do for that is just to book far in advance or if you have a good credit card points, you can get like really good travel, travel perks. Just get your ass down here and immediately out of the gate, you're spending like less than half of what you normally spend on everything. So it's truly saving money, gaining experience. There's no downside. If you got a little if you're a little adventurous, a little spontaneous, like there's no reason not to do it. So there was this guy who came on a space, I think, you know, over the weekend or late last week, and he's got a house he owns outright. His plan is to sell it, bring his family to India. He's got two little kids, one's, you know, one and a half, one's three or so. So they're not quite in school or, you know, it doesn't really affect them to move them, you know, over overseas or whatever. But, you know, go live in India for, I think you said like a year or two, save all that money and then when they get back, they'll buy, you know, they might buy a house on the way back and probably end up spending like a tenth of what they sold this one for. So it is it is an interesting idea, isn't it? Like you kind of you move with the with the flow of Bitcoin.
A highlight from SBF Guilty!
"7 guilty verdicts for Sam Bankman -Fried, Bitcoin ETFs in the future and a happy recovery in crypto prices are all providing the blockchain world with much to discuss. After a couple weeks off, we're back to do the thing we do where we look at top stories and say whatever our brains tell us to say and it'll be super interesting because by the way, Travis is transitioning. More about that in this show. There's no filter, just badness and banter about what's been going on in the crypto world and in our world on this bad news, episode number 701 of the Bad Crypto Podcast. Hey, welcome back to the Bad Crypto Podcast, the show for the crypto curious and the crypto serious. Joel come here. Travis right there. Still your Sir Lords and with you from Puerto Rico, the beautiful island in the Caribbean. How you doing? Doing great. Nice to see you again. Good, sir. You as well. We had a couple weeks off and people are like, are you guys done doing the show? We hit 700 and we're like, done. No, actually we hit that 700th episode and then we were waiting for SBF to get seven indictments and then so he did and then we're like, okay, we can do the show again now that he is going to prison for a long time. Seven the number of perfection. We'll tell you more about what's been going on in our world. But first let's get to the news and tell you what's going on in the crypto world. Timestamp November the 4th, 2023 to 14 p .m. in the afternoon here in Puerto Rico. I know this show is coming out on Sunday, so it might be a little delayed on what you're going to hear here as far as the prices go. But the crypto market cap, according to CoinGecko, is currently $1 .34 trillion Bitcoin, thirty four thousand seven seventy Ethereum eighteen hundred thirty eight dollars BNB two thirty seven XRP sixty one cents Solana forty one dollars. Damn. Why did I sell mine? Cardano thirty two cents and Dogecoin almost at seven cents. The crypto markets have taken a bounce back. Sir Lord Travis, you know what? And one of the things that I am transitioning is I'm selling my home and moving back to the States. And this home is the selling process is taking forever, dude, but I wanted to start selling it. Bitcoin was like at sixteen eight when I decided to sell it in in January. I was like, dude, I thought this house was going to sell quickly. And I was like, I want to get some of that sixteen seventeen thousand dollar Bitcoin might sell us some bitch and then process and this and that in Puerto Rico. And now Bitcoin is freaking thirty, almost thirty five thousand dollars, dude. Like I missed out on doubling of my money right there, which sucks about that. There are. So I just I just want you all know, I want crypto to do I want Bitcoin to go down like about ten grand. I want to I'd like to see twenty five K again so I could snag more of that. I'm sorry to interrupt this show, this broadcast to slap Travis Rice in the head. Yeah, because the rest of us, I mean, yes, I want you to have cheap Bitcoin. But, you know, if this is just the beginning of a bull run, that means that there are lots of opportunities. Remember, our previous high was sixty nine thousand. And most people are expecting us to blow by into six figures this time around. And so we can analyze, you know, what's happening in that world and all of what's driving it. I thought maybe we take a look and just see who are the big winners right now. We mix. Don't know what it is, but it's up 66 percent this week. Well, that's what that's what a deejay does whenever they have a list. They do a we mix. Yeah, we. Yeah.
A highlight from Sam Bankman-Fried Found Guilty on All 7 Counts | EP 860
"You It's all going to zero against Bitcoin.

Apparently the Bitcoin price dumped on us when we were like Yeah, Bitcoin totally trolled us yesterday. That is a hundred percent pain max pain in regard to the price Anyways, the current Moscow time aka what your Fiat dollars worth aka how much Bitcoin you can buy for a single dollar It's currently at two thousand eight hundred and seventy nine cents per dollar or for you bit maxis out there 287 bits the total percentage of Bitcoin that will ever be issued I repeat ever be issued until the end of time is currently at ninety three point zero one percent the market cap of Bitcoin in fiat terms is at 678 point four billion the realized monetary inflation taking fiat currencies to school is at one point seven four percent and that Will get cut in half it'll go down It's gonna go down in April roughly April the Bitcoin verse gold market cap. Is that five point eleven percent? Barely at five percent of the gold market cap and that is ten trillion dollars guys And you guys are you guys are bearish out there couldn't be me can't relate Anyways, the total public lightning capacity is at five thousand three hundred and six point nine nine BTC The hash rate the last 90 days is at four hundred and fifteen point four exit hatches the pending fees Wow Okay, yesterday was at one point nine today is at three point nine Oh for Bitcoin currently sitting in the mempool that Clark Moody dashboard is reading and then of course blocks to having We're at twenty four thousand eight hundred and sixty two and as of today the having estimate is the mean number April 20th 2024 let's let's hope we mean that into reality anyways guys As we were telling you yesterday We've been covering it constantly on this show the theme of You know yesterday we talked about the flight to quality. We talked about the bond market. We talked about inflation numbers we've talked about corporate press covering Bitcoin in favorable light or rather even in unfavorable light, but it does seem like we are crossing the Rubicon into mainstream consciousness and moving forward if you are in Financial markets financial media you will have to talk about Bitcoin and I say it all the time, you know Look, we're just youtubers. We're just Bitcoiners. We're just everyday Bitcoiners that happen to make a show We just cover what's going on in the world. So We realize that maybe what we say about Bitcoin doesn't hit as hard as when a billionaire rocket scientist Talks about the same things we're talking about or rather maybe we need to wear suits So we seem like we're more authority figures or maybe one day we'll be on the television and then now that will give us some Sense of legitimacy. But anyways, this is another simply Bitcoin. I told you so moment and Sailor is just saying everything we've been saying forever on the show Anyways, you can see this tweet by a swan it goes Michael sailors bullish mainstream awareness seems to be reaching new heights of Bitcoin And this is from today's micro strategy earnings call. So we got a short clip We'll talk about it and then we will move on into the news, but check this out He's saying what we say all the time guys. Love to see it. We're winning constantly winning. So Tune in strap up. It's gonna be a great bull run mainstream awareness Seems to be reaching new heights for Bitcoin we have We have the likes of Larry Fink Referring to it as a flight quality we have Druckenmiller noting that it's a legitimate asset embraced by an entire generation and Lamenting that he doesn't own more of it or own it We have Muhammad al -aryan on television noting that Bitcoin is being viewed now as a safe haven asset We have a lot of coverage of Bitcoin in television On television networks news networks and also through mainstream media that should continue to grow as that coverage increases that combined with increasing availability of Wall Street analyst coverage and new voices emerging in the community like like fidelity with their analysis of Bitcoin all of those new voices and new interest is Driving of education a new generation of investors I think we can expect more of that during the coming 12 months and All of these things together just create a virtual cycle and as they drive Bitcoin awareness they should drive Bitcoin investment and that should drive more news and that should drive more awareness and that should catalyze more and more firms to take an interest in supporting Bitcoin or investing in Bitcoin and Absolutely love to hear it and and remember guys I'm I just thought of this as we were live because I've been using this chart a lot again I'm over here at nakamoto Institute org chefs at the pierre Richard.

Today is podcast episode number fourteen hundred and fifty. Can you believe it? I'm your host, JV, and today is November 3rd. Welcome to Moonvember of twenty twenty three. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day. We got Bitcoin up about a quarter percent, hovering just under thirty five thousand. We have Ether up point three percent trading at eighteen hundred dollars. Cardano, one of the top gainers, up five and a half percent and also XRP barely in the green. And if we are in doubt, they say you need to zoom out. Let's look at the one month. Wow, that's much more sexier, isn't it? Now we have Bitcoin up twenty seven percent for the month. We got ETH up about 10 percent. Solana is up almost 70 percent. Cardano up twenty three percent. XRP up fourteen percent. BNB up seven percent. Personally, I love it when everything in crypto is a winner. It don't get no sexier than that. And look at Chainlink up fifty two percent for the month. Good lord. And check it out. Coin market cap percent in just under one point three trillion with about forty five billion in volume in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin dominance pulled back a little bit, currently at fifty two point seven percent, and the ether dominance in the 16 percentage range for the first time I have ever seen that I could recall.

And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers of the past twenty four hours for chain up fourteen and a half percent trading at three dollars and twenty cent and Oasis Network up twelve percent trading at six point two cents, followed by the trust wallet token up almost twelve percent trading at a dollar twenty three and checking out crypto bubbles so we can see the top gainers for the past week. Massive shout out to Emilio. I appreciate the super chat. Fam, you're way too kind. Much love, much respect. He just said you are amazing. Nah, I think you're amazing. And I appreciate the orange so we can orange pill more mofos and help change the world. Let's freaking go. Much love, fam. But as we can see on the crypto bubbles on your screen, we got a lot of gainers overall. That means the market cap is pumping and a rising tide rises all ships and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a sixty five in greed. Yesterday was a seventy two last week, a seventy and last month a forty nine, which is neutral. So there you have it, my fam. What's your thoughts on the current Bitcoin price action? Let me know. Are you pumped up for Moomvember? I sure as hell am. Let's dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis for the day. Check out the charts with a Bitcoin price action is likely to go next. Bitcoin broke below thirty five G's baby after the November 2nd Wall Street open, as analysis warned of overheated derivatives. As you know, derivatives are financial tools of financial destruction. Yeah, for real. Now Bitcoin under does the post fed gains. We're currently tinkering just under that thirty five thousand, which is now back at a resistance. The highs had come on the back of the encouraging language from Jay Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, who in a speech suggested the interest rate hikes might soon end. Now, the Fed opted not to change the rates at the latest meeting on the Federal Open Market Committee, which was November 1st quoting their press release. Recent indicators suggest the economic activity expanded at a strong pace. In the third quarter, job gains have moderated since earlier in the year, but remain strong and the unemployment rate has remained low. Inflation remains elevated and accompanying press release stated. They also shared here that the U .S. banking system is sound and resilient. Sure it is. Tighter financial and credit conditions for households and businesses are likely to weigh on economic activity, hiring and inflation. The extent of these effects remain uncertain. The committee remains highly attentive to inflation risk. We all know they're full of ish, right, to say the least. And quoting crypto analyst, Bitcoin breaks out, reaches a new yearly high, which is currently just shy of 36 G's. Now, not a massive breakout, but as long as we say above 34 .8, which we currently are, the next target is 36 .5 to 37 ,000. And the altcoins will follow after, which is typically what seems to go down. Now, down over a thousand from its highs. Bitcoin was worrying some with derivative markets, particularly in the focus, quoting Charles Edwards at Capriole Investments. All Bitcoin derivatives markets are overheated at present. This captures the perps, futures and options. Stay safe out there. And also, we have reacting popular trader school agreed that arguing it was now the spot market to charge of saving the Bitcoin price strength, as he shares here, something to be aware of when sizing up positions currently, when derivatives get hot. This puts increasing focus on spot market to support the current prices and the trend. That's right. In his own analysis, we also had material indicators concluding caution should be applied to the current Bitcoin trading environment, meaning expect more volatility ahead and uploading the snapshot of liquidity on the Bitcoin order book for the largest global exchange, Binance. It warned support levels were apt to disappear quickly. A form of a rug pull. So you have been warned. Newcomer support gaining liquidity at this time lay at both 34 and 33 .5. So there you have it, fam. Again, how many of you are currently bullish on that? King crypto. And with that being shared, now let's discuss our next story of the day. The latest from Michael Saylor. He was recently interviewed on the news and shared some very positive sentiment in the Bitcoin market. Also, he has been a dollar cost averaging and stacking stats. This week, the Bitcoin price came within a hair of thirty six. I think we hit like thirty five nine ninety during our watch party before abruptly reversing and correcting to thirty four to fifty. But after nearly a 30 percent run over the past month, it is natural for the price to cool off as some traders take profit and market participants evaluate whether or not the catalyst for the rally remain valid. Now, despite the intraday price action, which saw almost five percent drawdown, a number of analysts remain bullish on Bitcoin naturally, and some expect another gamma squeeze. If the Bitcoin price manages to push through the thirty six three hundred level, we're only like four hundred dollars off of that right now. Just FYI, permables like MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor appear unbothered by the whipsaw price action. And on November 1st, MicroStrategy announced the October purchase of one hundred and fifty five more Bitcoin for five point three million. As the outlines here in October, MicroStrategy acquired additional one hundred and fifty five BTC for five point three million bucks, now holding one hundred and fifty eight thousand four hundred BTC like, whoa, and what's the most mind boggling? Saylor didn't even get into Bitcoin until twenty twenty. So it goes to show you someone can come here in twenty twenty three and become an even bigger whale than Michael Saylor. In fact, the likes of the Black Rocks of the world put Michael Saylor to shame because we're talking about mega mega mega whales on a massive scale. And when asked about the upcoming Bitcoin having during an interview on Squawk Box, here's what he had to share. Most of the natural sellers of Bitcoin in the market right now are Bitcoin miners and they have to sell to cover their electricity bills and capital costs and retire their debt. That's about a billion dollars per month worth of selling into the market. The protocol forces that to be cut in half as of next April or late April. And he also says, so you're going to see twelve billion bucks of natural selling per year converted to six billion of natural selling a year and at the same time as things like the spot ETFs increase the demand for Bitcoin. So that's why all of us are fairly bullish over the next 12 months. How many of you are bullish? Let me know. Demand is going to increase and supply is going to contract. And this is fairly unprecedented in the history of Wall Street. That's what's up now is a pretty ideal entry point for Bitcoin, according to Saylor. Also, he was recently interviewed and I actually transcribed this video clip when he was speaking on Squawk on the street. And I feel this is very relevant. Here's what Saylor says for the industry to move to the next level. We need to migrate to adult supervision. We're going to need the big banks to become the crypto custodians. We're going to need Wall Street to take a role and we need to rationalize away from the one hundred thousand crypto tokens. You know, the yo yo coins that people are manipulating to Bitcoin. Bitcoin is an asset without an issuer. It is the one universally recognized protocol that is a commodity in the space. And so when banks on Wall Street and responsible custodians are managing Bitcoin and the industry takes its eyes away from all the shiny little tokens that have distracted and demolish shareholder value, I think the industry moves to the next level and we 10x from here. Now, what's another 10x from the current price action we're talking about roughly? What is that? Three hundred and fifty thousand dollars per BTC. Send it and let's frickin go. Also quoting him here, I think the liabilities or the early crypto cowboys, the crypto tokens, which are unregistered securities, the unreliable crypto custodians for the industry to move to the next level. We're going to need to migrate to adult super vision. And I shared with you the rest of that quote. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the one and only giga Chad Michael Saylor. Next story of the day. This is breaking news. SBF has been found guilty in all seven fraudulent charges. Yeah, this is wild. Yeah, here we go. I'm going to read all this to you. Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman Freed was found guilty of all seven charges by a jury in his criminal trial in New York after about four hours of deliberations, meaning it didn't take long. Bankman Freed was found guilty of two counts of wire fraud, two counts of wire fraud conspiracy, one count of securities fraud, one count of commodities fraud conspiracy and one count of money laundering conspiracy. Good Lord. That's a lot of charges and it's just getting started. He'll be back in court in March to continue with some more charges to probably get guilty of. We'll return to the court for sentences by New York District Judge Lewis Kaplan March 28th. So that's the date is right before the having. Government prosecutors will recommend a sentence, but Judge Kaplan will have the final say. Now, Bankman Freed's crimes each carry a maximum sentence of between five and 20 years in prison with the wire fraud, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy carrying a maximum of 20 years sentence in a press conference outside the court, the New York Southern District U .S. Attorney Damian Williams called Bankman Freed's crimes a multibillion dollar scheme designed to make him the king of crypto, right? The Michael Jordan of crypto, the Warren Buffett of crypto and of one the biggest financial frauds in American history, Bankman Freed's attorney Mark Cohen said in a statement, we respect the jury's decision, but we are very disappointed with the result. Naturally, Mr. Bankman Freed maintains his innocence and will continue to vigorously fight the charges against him. Anyone here in the chat. We have over 200 people in the live. Anyone believe he is innocent? I am just curious if there's any outliers out there. Anyways, other key FTF execs, including former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison, FTX co -founder Gary Wang and former engineering head Nishad Singh have all pleaded guilty to various charges and work with the government to testify against Bankman Freed in the five week trial. Now, Bankman Freed had pleaded not guilty to all the charges. And during his trial, he took the stand to maintain his innocence against the best wishes of his lawyers who told him to shut the what up, just saying, and marking the FTX November 2022 collapse as a number of big mistakes I made. He denied any wrongdoing in the FTX relationship with Alameda, attempting to distance himself from key decisions, which we all know is not true, according to the testimonies of their execs, Bankman Freed pinned the blame on Gary Wang for creating a function that allowed Alameda to trade funds on FTX that it didn't have and claimed he wasn't entirely sure what happened. Oh, I don't know what happened with Alameda's line of credit, which ballooned to billions in the collapsing crypto market of 2022. In his testimony, he also blamed Caroline Ellison for not focusing on risk management. How are you going to blame your ex? That's just why. Anyways, he didn't believe he defrauded FTX customers by taking over eight billion worth of their funds. Instead, he framed it as Alameda just borrowing from the exchange. Yeah, borrowing from investors without their permission is called stealing. I just wanted to point that one out. Now, Max Kaiser responded to this attorney who spoke out and he said, this is tough talk when it comes to the minor league, the drug Adderall ish coiner like SPF, but where's all the bravado when Jamie, the tapeworm diamond, the best the CEO, JP Morgan Chase, gets caught manipulating markets and defrauding the public again or the next crooked Warren Buffett bailout? You talk a good game, but you're no different than SPF. And I think Max makes some excellent points. The big dogs get away with this all the time, of course, but clearly there's levels to this ish, if you know what I mean. Now, what are your thoughts surrounding this case? How do you think this will likely continue to play out in March as they continue with the court trial facing more charges he's up against? Let me know, fam. I appreciate that. I got some very bullish predictions to share with you. In fact, I'm going to be sharing with you the top five Bitcoin price predictions for twenty, twenty four and beyond. Bitcoin continues to circle its highest levels in 18 months. Again, the annual high for the year is currently almost thirty six thousand dollars, but let's dive right into the predictions. First and foremost, Matrix Port predicts forty five thousand within two months. So two months from November would mean January. I could definitely see Bitcoin hitting forty, fifty thousand easy peasy before the halving. But let me know your thoughts. Now, that prediction came from Matrix Port, the crypto trading firm founded by Jihan Wu, himself a founder, a Bitcoin mining giant Bitmain in a blog post in late October. Matrix Port doubled down on a forty five thousand year end price targets. That's the Christmas target. Let's go, Santa, which is initially revealed in January. It was based on a handful of in -house models with Matrix Port also successfully predicting Bitcoin's October gains. Quitting them here, Bitcoin is breaking above the July thirty one five resistance showing that forty five is achievable by the year's end. And again, I think that's a very doable target. But let me know your thoughts. The next prediction comes from Bitcoin. They say new all time high pre halving. I also agree with that, especially if we get the ETF approval. I would anticipate above and beyond sixty nine thousand before the April twenty twenty four halving, but that's only if you know what I mean. We'll see how this plays out. The halving is a watershed moment. We all know the blocks of subsidies get cut in half for the miners in September. Bitcoin stated Bitcoin would surpass its current sixty nine thousand peak before April of twenty twenty four. Now they shared here, no, Bitcoin is not going to top before the halving. Yes, it's going to reach a new all time high before the halving. No, Bitcoin is not going to one hundred and sixty G's because the magnitude of every pullback is large. This means it'll peak after the halving in twenty twenty four. And yes, the target price is around two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. I love that. That's right in alignment with Max Keiser's short term target of two hundred and twenty thousand. Now, they also shared this chart. Both the all time high and the post halving two hundred and fifty thousand target came courtesy of the Elliott Wave theory charting, which we cover commonly here in the show with Bitcoin mimicking the behavior from the previous cycles. And you can see their estimation of how the Bitcoin price is likely to rise is coming directly from Bitcoin. Now, Bitcoin did, however, make room for a total of four pullbacks. As outlined in this chart, you can see one, two, three, four. Before we hit the peak at five, quoting them here, there will be one pullback before breaking to a new all time high, followed by another pullback at around one hundred and twenty five thousand. Additionally, there will be two more pullbacks after the halving, which are not demonstrated here. Now for the next one, three Bitcoin price models, one hundred and thirty thousand dollar target zone. That's right. Let's freaking go. Quoting CryptoCon here, I'm prepared for the lower prices, but the stars are aligning at one hundred and thirty for the Bitcoin this cycle. And the concept also hinges on the halving events and the next peak should come around four years after the sixty nine thousand dollar move in November of twenty twenty one. We all know everything is cyclical and Bitcoin every four years driven by the halving. Now the one million dollar question. How about a one million dollar Bitcoin price target leads us to Kathy Wood of ARK Invest, the CEO and chief investment officer, has joined former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes in doubling down on her seven figure price prediction when this could happen, understandably up for debate. But changing macroeconomic tides have emboldened what remains a daring Bitcoin price prediction. In October, Hayes maintained that the path to a one million dollar coin was in full effect thanks to the macro reality. Now quoting BlockWorks on the Margin podcast right here, this was shared actually on an interview. If people lose faith in the bond market and this fiat artificial construction we have created over the past 80 to 100 years, this global economy and how it has been structured, if we lose confidence in that, then the amount of money that's going to be looking for an alternative is going to be something that we have never seen before. He shared over in an interview and speaking of Kathy Wood, she was just on Bloomberg and here's what she shared when she was asked, what's a better hedge against inflation? Is it Bitcoin or is it gold? And very boldly she said, Bitcoin hands down, hands down is a hedge against both inflation and deflation. Yes, so is gold, but Bitcoin is digital. And if you look at the incremental demand we are going to see, but gold already has its demand. You know, it happened already, right? Bitcoin is new and institutions are barely involved in the young people would much rather prefer to hold Bitcoin than hold gold preach. So it's interesting that both gold and Bitcoin are hedges against deflation, but Bitcoin has been doing better recently preach and Bitcoin naturally will consider outpacing gold. I think it was Max Kaiser who said for every dollar, the Bitcoin price action increases. I'm sorry for every dollar, the gold price increases expect Bitcoin to go up by over $20 meaning it will continue to outpace gold by a factor of 20. Let me know if you agree or disagree fam. And we spoke about Kathy Wood and her a $1 million price prediction. In fact, she even has a bullish case scenario by the year 2030 of Bitcoin hitting $1 .48 million. Keep that in mind. But now let's discuss Arthur Hayes, the BitMEX founder predicting Bitcoin price to rally 2700 % taken us to $1 million per coin. And then we'll dive into the latest updates with the likelihood of the spot Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. According to the major asset manager, here we go. BitMEX co -founder Arthur Hayes is doubling down on a prediction. The Bitcoin is destined to reach the seven figure price. Hayes says that a monetary policy tool known as the yield curve control will act as the catalyst for Bitcoin to reach that 1 million Mark, a gain of around 2 ,700 % from the current level. Send it, let's go. Central banks use the yield curve control to influence the longterm interest rate level by buying longterm bonds as much as possible to prevent the rate from rising above the intended target. And according to Hayes, the entire U S government is enabling a loose monetary policy environment. Even as the fed continues tightening. Now the BitMEX founder first predicted seven figure Bitcoin earlier this year in March in that essay, which I covered here on the show. And at the time, he argued that China's loosening of his monetary policy would trigger Bitcoin to explode to $1 million per coin. Hayes also says the decision by the fed mid this week, uh, pause the rate hike interest rate suggests it's time to pump it up, pump, pump it up. And according to the BitMEX founder, the feds decision would trigger other central banks to also ease their monetary policy. Quoting him here over to you, BTC, let's go. I shall increase the pace of my rotation out of treasury bills and into Bitcoin and ish coins. Now that the fed had paused over two meetings, every other central bank has cover to print expect massive stimulus coming from China, Europe and Japan. So there you have it coming directly from crypto Hayes. Just blaze. Let's get it now for the moment you have all been waiting for. Let's dive into our featured story of the day and discuss a Bitcoin ETF being approved this month in November. And what would that mean for the crypto market? Let's break this baby down. We have Steven McClurg, the chief investment officer at Valkyrie investments has put forth a strong indication that a landmark approval from the U S SCC for a spot Bitcoin ETF can transpire by the month's end. Send it and let's go. The approval of the spot ETF is currently one of the biggest factors influencing the Bitcoin price as well as the entire crypto markets trajectory. You can say that again now alongside the financial giants such as black rock, the world's largest asset manager fidelity, which is about half the size of black rock. We got Vanek, we got Invesco, we got Valkyrie, one of the companies at the forefront of the battle with the SCC over the spot ETF. We also have grayscale. Don't forget the GBTC product. We have the firm managing to Bitcoin related ETFs at the moment. Now Valkyrie Bitcoin and ether strategy ETF and the Valkyrie Bitcoin miners ETF with a combined asset value of 51 .1 million at this time. And they also have active filings for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now McClurg, citing the latest amendments to Valkyrie spot, Bitcoin ETF app anticipates the SCC will issue another series of comments within the next weeks, potentially setting the stage for the approval of the 19 before rule changes by the end of the month. Send it quitting him here before anything else happens, we get a second round of comments and I believe we'll probably get those comments in the next one to three weeks. A late November approval likely means a February launch. So note that if we get the green light in November, it means the Bitcoin ETF would likely launch a few months later in February, which would be right in time again for the Bitcoin having. Now he also shared with ETF .com this interview suggesting a timeline for the SCCs response to these crucial amendments. He also argues the SCC can wait until January to ask the applicants to put the final touches on their S one filings. That's the other alternative scenario. Now Nate Geraci, host of the ETF prime pod explain that Valkyrie CIO suggests SCC can approve the 19 B fours exchange rule changes for the spot Bitcoin ETFs by the end of November and then the S one registration statements early next year. These don't have to be approved at the same time, so keep that in mind. Though they need both for the ETFs to begin trading. Now in recent weeks, the SCC has been actively communicating with ETF apps and disclose that the agency is carefully scrutinizing all spot Bitcoin ETF apps. The focal points of the SCCs inquiry have pertained to the comprehensive explanation of various risk disclosures, methodologies concerning index usage and net asset value computations, environmental risk inclusions, as well as detailed insights into custodial practices. Recent amendments to filings by entities such as BlackRock and VanEck have been augmented to eludicate how initial fun seating could be conducted and also note that BlackRock already began seeding their ETF back in October, which was last month. This is something that Larry Fink their CEO has already disclosed. Now because of that, industry experts remain cautiously optimistic. We have Matt Hogan, the CIO of bitwise asset management, highlighting lingering concerns, quitting him here. Market manipulation is still a potential stumbling block. Custody isn't a wrap, so there is still a lot of work to do, he stated. Now the anticipation isn't purely speculative. The man forecast suggests substantial interest. McClurg envisions about 10 billion bucks flowing into these products within the first one to two months post launch. While bitwise projects 50 billion in inflows within the first five years. I think that's extremely conservative. I could see trillions of inflows within five years, but hey, to each their own. Valkyrie revised its spot Bitcoin ETF filing October 30th a few days ago with an S1 registration statement submitted to the SCC outlining the Valkyrie ETF. The proposed fund shares are intended to be listed under the ticker BRRR on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Valkyrie updated their app and a part of a wider trend as several firms have similarly refiled their spot ETF apps signaling a concerted effort toward regulatory compliance and optimism for approval. Bloomberg ETF analyst, James Saferard identified these amendments as positive signals for progress and possible imminent approvals. Let me know which you think will get the green light first from the SCC. We all know it's imminent. We all know it's going to happen, but when is it going to be November? Is it going to be December? Could it be January? Could it be March? Let me know in the live poll we have on the screen. I have some bonus content to share with you before we dive into the live Q and A. This is from jury and Timur. Why is this so relevant? He is the head of macro at fidelity fidelity being a four and a half trillion dollar asset manager. He's the one who predicted a billion dollar Bitcoin price by the year 2038 and here's something he just recently shared. He shares some incredible threads I want to share with you. Bitcoin is volatile, but it's scarcity and adoption curve create the potential for it to be a high powered hedge against monetary shenanigans. I think of it as exponential gold and in this chart it shows you Bitcoin going past $1 .2 million per coin. That's pretty sexy. Gets me excited as he shares here. One of the attributes of Bitcoin is that it's a network asset and as such it's adoption curve has followed the typical S curve shape. We have seen many of the S curves throughout history and he continues here in the thread. The question, where is Bitcoin's journey along that S curve? A network assets value is driven by its adoption curve, so the slope of that curve matters a lot. Makes a good point. And when I first went down this rabbit hole in late 2020 it's adoption curve, which I defined as the number of non -zero addresses was very steep. It resembled the S curve for mobile phones during the 1980s and the 1990s, which was pretty promising. I'm going to read you a few more now. However, as the real rate narrative changed from dovish in 2020 to hawkish in 2022, the adoption curve flattened and it is now closer to the slope of the internet adoption curve from the two thousands and it has not made much progress since 2021. Now we also had some other threads which are very valuable. I'm just going to read the lead part of it with Bitcoin moving up. Once again, will its adoption curve accelerate as it did a few years ago and how does the macro trend on rates affect it? There's some very insightful data. If you want this, check the show notes below the video in the description. I'll include all of this. And he had one more good thread continuing the discussion from the recent thread on Bitcoin. I highly recommend you check this out because again, this is the head of macro over at Fidelity, one of the world's largest asset managers. So there you have it, my crypto fam and don't forget to check out cryptonewsalerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in our live Q and a, and I look forward to seeing you on tomorrow's episode.
WSJ: Biden’s New Power Grab
"They want to regulate it now. Wall Street Journal, James Freeman, Biden's new power grab. What are they talking about? Another power grab? Yes, sir. Artificial intelligence. Wall Street Journal reports, the Biden team plans to invoke emergency federal powers. Wow. They must be really concerned, folks. As part of new a executive order aimed at reining in the risks of artificial intelligence. President Biden will release on Monday an order invoking the Korean War era Defense Production Act, which would compel major A .I. companies to notify the government when developing any system that poses, quote, a serious risk to national security, national economic security or national public safety. National public health and safety, isn't that the same thing they used to censor people on covid? Oh, I'm sure that's just a mistake. Some good coffee there. Sure, that's just a mistake, folks. They want to put out vaccine version number seventy two point five and tell you how wonderful it is. What if A .I. out comes and says, oh, the data actually says that vaccine seventy two point five is not very effective. What's they're going to do is they're going to reach out to these companies and say, you better pull that down. That's algorithmic discrimination. You're causing a national security problem. Yeah, but it's just
A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Wow. It's Monday. Happy Monday. Do you know where you are? You're in New York City. No. I got to tell you something. I've been saying the same thing, but I've been so busy that it gets to a point where it's unhealthy. So, folks, feel free. I covet your intercession. If you don't understand that phrase, good. I covet your intercession because it's been tough. Good stuff, but last week I was in Omaha, Nebraska. This weekend I was in Colorado Springs. I want to talk about that. Just to let you know, in hour one today, in a couple of minutes, we're talking to Gavin Wax. He's the head of the New York Young Republicans Club. We're going to be talking about Israel, current events, Biden, Trump, everything current events, and he's terrific, so in a couple of minutes. In hour two, we're talking to the world's tallest man that we've ever interviewed. He is seven feet tall, and when he came into the studio, I got physically frightened. Suddenly I felt like a mouse, and I ran. You grabbed his harp and you ran out of the castle. And I clambered down the beanstalk, and then I realized, no, that was all in my head. But he's seven feet tall. I want to be clear, John Disneyland has a lot of things to say. We don't talk about his height, but I want to tell you, Nehemiah Strong, he wrote a book called Nehemiah Strong. I won't say anything except it is fantastic, fantastic, and we've got to have him back. He's an amazing man, but he is the tallest person I've ever interviewed, and we decided that he's the tallest person I'm ever going to interview. We're putting a cap on it, so anybody who is taller than seven feet, if you say, we emailed the program, we sent you our book, I'm sorry, those are the rules. John Disneyland is the tallest person I'm ever going to interview, okay? We had to cap it. At some point, it gets out of hand. It's like a limbo pole. It's like if you go any higher, you're out. Something like that, or the opposite. But honestly, we just had to put a cap on it. You've got to have limits. You've got to make rules, folks. Seven feet, that's it. I'm sorry, okay? I don't make the rules, except in this case I did. All right, so that's what we have coming up today, really, really strong conversations. Tomorrow, in hour one, I have a next -level conversation with the great Naomi Wolf. You'll see. That's hour one tomorrow. She's a big deal. She's a gift to this country at this time, I got to tell you. Later on in the week, we have Doug Giles. He's the hippie -dippie weatherman that kills lions. Always fun. Yes. We've got a lot of guests coming up. And then tomorrow, we're filming, this week, we're filming some Socrates in the Studio events, which I can't say too much about that. But in December, we're launching a streaming platform, Socrates Plus. So exciting. And we're going to be posting some of these things. Heather McDonald, Anthony Bradley, whom I know from the King's that we're finally doing some Socrates in the Studio events. But to get back to where I've been, I was in Omaha. I spoke at Hank Kunneman's church last week. I emailed Pastor Hank and his wife, Brenda. I said, you know, I'm going to be in Omaha for this event with the Speravita Institute. By the way, the Speravita Institute, amazing, amazing. I keep meeting these heroes. It was incredible. But so I spoke at Pastor Hank's church. I just went to dinner. They said, oh, we have a Wednesday night service. Would you preach? So I did. Then we went to Colorado Springs for Jim Dobson, who is a living legend and a great American hero. Doesn't get greater. He puts on a thing at the Broadmoor Hotel every year called The Gathering. The Gathering sounds like creepy a seventies movie. The Gathering, right? Yeah, it does. Yeah, The Gathering. I think it's a I think it's a role playing game that you buy packs of The Gathering. Yeah. Were there robes and hoods? Yeah, I thought of I thought of a title for a for a bad horror film called The Blooding. I knew Chris would laugh. The Blooding. Yeah. The Gathering. Anyway. Anyway, so you brought hearing you brought your amulets to The Gathering. Yes. The Jim Dobson puts us on every year. And I want to say Charlie Kirk spoke. And he just you know, he's got nothing new. He's it's a lot of fluff, basically. A lot of a lot of fluff. No, he's such he's such a wonderful. It's such a joy to to hear Charlie. Ben Carson spoke. Jack Hibbs spoke. I put this on on Twitter and on Instagram. But to be around folks like that is so encouraging because there's they're saying a lot of what I'm saying. And I realized they didn't get it from me. This is God speaking, you know, some truth to encourage us. So it was it was wonderful. I spoke on Saturday night, followed by Gary Bauer. Gary Bauer. We got to get him on the program. Gave a speech. I just thought this was so amazing. It was such an amazing speech because normally I go places on the speaker. I don't get to hear people. And it was absolutely amazing. There was also a video from the new speaker, Mike Johnson. Incredible. We're going to be talking about him with Gavin Wax today. But honestly, it was it was it was such a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful thing. But we've got to get Gary Bauer here in the studio because some of the stuff he spoke about, I just thought it was just beautiful, powerful, powerful stuff. And he's taken on a position with the James Dobson Family Institute. So anyway, OK, that was that was incredible. And then your wife joined you, too, which is always fun. And Suzanne joined me, which is always fun and wonderful that we get to travel together. She may go with me next week to Dallas. I'll be in Dallas. I'll be in Chicago at the end of this week. Next week, I'm in Dallas, the Council for Life. After that, going to Washington, D .C., Intercessors for America. Dutch Sheets will be speaking at that. I'll be speaking at that.

It got a zillion views on rumble like it got it got 10 times as many views as we normally get. What's great about John is I think he's one of the best impersonators out there for Trump. I think a lot of people just memorize bits. He actually can improvise in the voice like he's done it so long. He knows that's no that's the genius is that you could say anything. And I was asking him like real journalistic questions and he responds no matter what you throw at him.

A highlight from Diversity Disaster
"Welcome to the Dennis Prager Show. I'm your guest host, Karl Jackson, sitting in for Dennis Prager. The number to call into the program, one eight Prager seven seven six. That number again is one eight Prager seven seven six or one eight two four three seventy seven seventy six. All right, I want to thank first off Dennis Prager and Sue for allowing me to sit behind their microphone and then entrusting me behind their mouth. I've got my back right here at AM 950. The answer Orlando .com right here in Orlando, Florida. Sean McConnell is in my ear. I want to thank Alan Estrin as well for allowing me as well to sit in and contacting me. Who do we have watching the lines there, Mr. McConnell? Tony is on the line. Thank you, Tony. Good to see you. All right, the number to call in one eight Prager seven seven six, one eight Prager seven seven six. I'm going to do things a little differently today. Of course, we'll touch some of the hot topics and some of the leading headlines of today, but I'm going to go I'm going to go somewhere else today and and and we'll bob and weave throughout the throughout the program here. I think I want to start here. I want to make some emphatic comments, and I know a lot of people might not be comfortable with these comments, but by the end of the show, I hope and pray that you will be and you will understand just how important they are, because there's a war that is occurring not just against Israel and Hamas or, dare I say, Israel and Iran, a war, sadly, that the United States government, under the leadership of Joe Biden, has helped to cultivate. And I say that, sadly, but I believe it to be true with all of my heart. But there's a war that's taking place right here in the United States, and I believe that it's already begun. We're going to talk about several issues, and honestly, we'll go throughout the entire three hours. They're not necessarily going to be broken up, but we're going to talk about crime right here in the United States. We're going to talk about the border problem. We're going to talk about the problem that is Islamist, Islamicism or Islamism or Islamic Jihad. We're going to talk about all of these issues because I think they're very, very important. But first, let me say this. Let me start off with this. Many of you in the audience or many of you in the listening audience have been taught to believe that diversity is our strength when it comes to America. That is a damn lie. Diversity is not our strength. Diversity will be our downfall. Now, if you're talking about diversity as far as the brain is concerned, that would be one thing. But unfortunately, when it comes to DEI, that's not what we're experiencing today. DEI, diversity, equity, inclusion, CRT, all of that racist bullcrap, that is taking us down. That is identity politics. What that has caused us to do is to divide on issues that we shouldn't be divided against. Let me say this. Even if you are an anti -Semite, even if you are an anti -Semite, even if you're a bigot and you're a despicable person in that sense, in my opinion, we all should be able to agree that when it comes to, let's say, listen, I'm not going to hold any punches. So parents, for those of you parents that are listening in, I'm going to describe some of the things that we know took place in Israel at the hands of Hamas. And so I just want to brace you. And this might be a recurring theme throughout the show. So if you have little ears around, I want you to brace them. I am a Christian, so I will try to watch my mouth, but I'm going to shoot straight with you. I'm going to shoot straight with you. And I believe that you deserve nothing less than for me to shoot straight with you. But we used to believe at least that when it came to, let's say, rape, killing women and children, beheading people, that should be a line that I think we all can agree that we should not cross, right? I think we, at least in the United States of America, we used to believe that those things were evil, right? I mean, anti -Semitism is evil, but we understand that there's going to be bigots if you don't act on your beliefs when it comes to that. Okay, listen, it's a free country. I can't stand you, but it's a free country. But now we seem to have quote unquote Americans that are Hamas sympathizers, that are terrorist sympathizers, and they don't belong here. They don't belong here, in my opinion. They're anti -American. So I'm here to say diversity is not our strength. That's total BS. It's going to be our downfall. And the left is specifically and intentionally focusing on issues that will divide us. This is dangerous. Let me tell you some of the things that should happen. I'm going to talk about, man, I get so much, it's insane. But I'm going to talk about the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, how stupid that was and how that's coming to bite us in the butt. Another thing that the Democrats embraced because they were losing the vote, that's part of the reason and why they finally embraced or they tried to leave their racism in the past and tried to project it onto Republicans. So we'll talk about that a little bit. I want to talk about the warfare that is immigration. A lot of people are thinking of war in conventional ways, and we should be, right? We should be on our guard. But I'm going to talk to you about the warfare by immigration, the warfare that is our immigration system, the warfare that is our open borders. Also, I'm going to talk to you about popping caps. We're going to talk about the Second Amendment. We're going to talk about the lies that the Vice President Kamala Harris was spewing last week when she was in, whatever, the press conference that she gave with the Australian Prime Minister. I got some numbers for you, and the numbers and the things that she were saying were just a complete and utter lie. That lady, I hate to say it because I don't want to be mean, but the truth of the matter is that lady is dumber than a box of rocks, and she has no business being Vice President of the United States. Now, Joe Biden is almost equally as dumb, but I don't even think he's as dumb as her, despite the fact that, in my opinion, the man has dementia. This is one of these left -wing people and Vice President Kamala Harris that has literally, I believe, been trained up in some of her thinking without really thinking about it, if you will. Let me tell you where we should start when it comes to immigration, and we'll get into this, and we'll get into the war by immigration. We'll get into this nonsense about the Australian buyback program and how it allegedly saved lives and reduced the numbers of gun ownership. All of this is a complete and utter lie. That's all the left do. They lie, they lie, they lie, they lie while they destroy the country. And if you hate America and if you're pro -Palestinian, which means pro -Hamas, I can't stand you behind, and I hope you leave the country. Move to Gaza. I hear there's an excellent fireworks show happening there right now that you could be a part of. All right, so merit -based immigration. I want to talk about that. Merit -based immigration. We need to move back to a merit -based immigration, and this is very important. This is crucial for our survival. Sadly, I don't think any American president has done it effectively in quite some time. We had a moratorium, and then with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, we destroyed that, and we began to destroy America. Democrats began to destroy America. Here's where we should be. Here's what we should be doing. All right, so currently, as it stands right now, we allow 1 .1, approximately 1 illegal, .1 I'm sorry, legal immigrants into the country annually. All right, we're going to have to change that makeup due to what Joe Biden has done, the open borders, because I'm telling you, guys, there's a war of immigration that is taking place. And while we sit here and we watch for, we wait for the beheadings and we wait for the mass shootings and all of this kind of stuff, I'm telling you, we are already at war. And China is at the helm. A lot of these countries in the Middle East, exception being Israel, are useful idiots for China. They don't realize that yet, but they will someday. They will someday. Russia also, they will someday. They'll realize it that they're useful idiots for China. But currently we allow in, again, approximately 1 .1 legal immigrants into the United States. The makeup of that is going to have to change. We'll talk about that. And I'm sorry, I think there's going to have to be a moratorium on that. At the very least, I believe we're going to have to cut those numbers in half until we can control the immigration process that doesn't seem to exist right now. I mean, these open borders are absolutely scary to me. This is the biggest threat. This is the biggest threat hitting the United States of these things. I've talked about how the left is trying to depopulate America. Perhaps I'll reintroduce you to that to some extent, but our open borders is a war that is being waged on us. And sadly, we have a United States government under the leadership of a Joe Biden that is participating. And it's sad. So that's going to have to be cut down. I want either that number cut in half, or I want a total moratorium for seven to 10 years. We'll be talking about that after the break. I got some other recommendations that need to happen right away when it comes to the border, if we're going to start saving this country. But we need some strong men and women that are willing to do it. Carl Jackson and for Dennis Prager, we'll be back in a few. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

All right, welcome back to The Dennis Prager Show. Such an honor to be sitting behind Dennis's microphone. I mean, I adore the man. He's absolutely brilliant, and we all should look up to him, frankly. Hat tip Breitbart, the Pentagon says the U .S. military launched airstrikes early Friday on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. So the U .S. strikes Iran linked sites in Syria in retaliation for the attacks on U .S. troops earlier or last week. Isn't this amazing? Isn't this amazing? So the U .S. military launched airstrikes early Friday on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Pentagon said, in retaliation for a slew of drone and missile attacks against U .S. bases and personnel in the region that began early last week. Man, I wonder if they could have afforded those drones had Biden not paid for them. Isn't it amazing how we've come full circle with the disaster that was the Afghanistan withdrawal, with the Taliban now running Afghanistan, $85 billion approximately in military equipment that we left behind that could be reverse engineered by China, were the Taliban to sell it to China, and let's assume that they did. I mean, it's phenomenal. It's amazing. We wouldn't be in the predicament that we are in were it not for Biden and the Democrats that voted for Joe Biden. And yes, I'm going to say that often. I'm going to say that loudly. If you're wondering what's happening around the world, if you're seeing what appears to be, I mean, the beginning steps, Lord willing, I hope that I'm wrong. I hope this does just end up being a move between Israel and Iran and their proxies in Hamas and Hezbollah. But let's not be naive. There's going to be a lot of leaders around the world that are looking at this decrepit dementia patient that are in the White House and they're saying, now is the time to make my move. And we have to wonder if those moves are not only going to reshift political allies and adversaries around the globe. It's insane. We simply don't know what's going to happen. But I can tell you what we need to do to start protecting our own border and to get ready for the fight. By the way, we'll be sharing as well, if I can get to ways that you need to prepare for a terrorist attack, because it's going to happen. And again, I think there's a war that is already being waged. I want to be clear, an unconventional war of sorts, where the ground troops are amassing their soldiers around us. And we have an administration in the White House that is fully complicit. Either they're stupid or they're complicit. Either way, we're very, very important. There's a piece, too, that I'm going to want to share by Ann Coulter. She wrote a fabulous piece last week. But I do want to get back to this immigration issue, because I believe it's important. Girl, are you a racist? Are you a bigot? No. No. I'm an American. I'm an American. Guys, we're not a nation of immigrants. This diversity, equity, inclusion, bullcrap. We're a nation of diversity. We're strengthened by diversity. That's all bullcrap that a lot of these college elites that have taught many of their students that have come through that don't have real world experience. That's just total bullcrap. All right. I'm sorry. Diversity does not make America stronger. Diversity makes America weaker. Diversity and thought and thinking, sure, where we can debate, go back and forth. That's not what the left is talking about. They love their people groups. They love the LGBTQ barbecue community. They love dividing men and women. You name it. They love dividing people because the left loves chaos. And what happens is, and sadly, we're starting to see this occur within the Republican Party, too. It's gotten so divisive within the Republican Party. I'm not even sure that we can win 2024. A lot of ignoramuses within the Republican Party. I'm so tempted to leave. You cannot believe it. But I'm not even convinced that we want to win 2024, to be frank with you. But said having that, we've gotten so divided, so divided that we're giving the elites exactly what they want. And so I'm like, can we at least unite here? We need to seal up these freaking borders. I'm sorry. I appreciate that there's a lot of people that want to come to America legally, but you're going to have to be punished because of the sins of the Biden administration letting people in illegally. So we've got 1 .1 approximately million people coming into this country. Every year, I want to ramp that back. I want that cut in half or I want a moratorium. And frankly, I would prefer a moratorium on illegal immigration, 7 or 10 years, whatever it takes us to make up this amount. And I want the people that have come in in the last couple of years deported. Full stop. Full stop. All right, for the Ilhan Omar's and all these people that think America is evil, why the hell would you want people to come to this country if it's so evil? Except that there's a plan. I want the visa overstays. They need to be deported. That's something that a lot of people don't consider. But even visa overstays, that's a way in which a lot of people come into this country. They stay in this country. We don't search for them in places like Australia, New Zealand. If you're there on a visa, a work visa of any sort, the day that your visa is up or perhaps the day before, they are knocking at your door, making sure that you're packing and ready to leave. We need to do the same thing. I really don't give a flip what your skills are at this point. I really don't. I really don't. Merit -based job -related reasons. When Trump was in office, this is one of the things that Trump said he wanted to do, unfortunately. And I got to find the quote. He literally said at the time, this is something we could work on after the 2020 election. Unfortunately, the left beat him to it. That is why when you have power, when you're in office, you better use it. You don't wait for jack crap. You use it. You use it. We can never make those mistakes again. The executive orders, great. We need legislation. And you use that power and you twist ankles, you twist knuckles, you twist elbows, you do whatever you got to do to use power. That is the difference between the right and the left. The right is willing to wait for elections, but the left, even when they lose elections, they seem to win because their agenda always moves forward. It's amazing to me. But at the time, Trump said, listen, this merit -based thing, when it comes to job -related reasons, let's grow that right now. 12 % of the people come into this country that's merit -based, job -related reasons. Let's jump that up to 57%. And I do appreciate that. We didn't get it done. We should have gotten it done. Family -based immigration currently makes up two -thirds of all immigration. That would need to decrease sadly, maybe to one -third. And again, I would prefer a moratorium, but at least we got to start somewhere. When it comes to asylum or diversity visas, they would have to be decreased by more than half. Right now, they stand at about 22 % of immigration. That's legal immigration, by the way. That needs to be cut down to 10%, again, with the caveat that I would prefer a full -out moratorium for the next seven to 10 years. It just has to stop. We've learned what diversity is. And unfortunately, what these elites have been telling our children that are going to these elite colleges and universities, and not even just the elites, I don't care if you go to community college nowadays, the stuff that they're teaching in these schools are just loony. And these people are graduating and running our country. This is Carl Jackson in for the great Dennis Prager. We'll be back in a few pretty soon. I got so much more to get to. It's insane. Stay tuned.

Now, broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. Former Vice President Mike Pence is dropping out of the 2024 presidential race. So after much prayer and deliberation, I have decided to suspend my campaign for president effective today. He made the unexpected announcement during his speech at the Republican Jewish coalition in Las Vegas today. He told the stunned audience, this is not my time. His latest campaign filing showed six hundred thousand dollars in debt and only one point two million in cash on hand. The campaign was also unable to gain the seventy thousand individual donors needed to qualify for the next GOP primary debate. Pence didn't endorse any other candidates. Officials in Maine confirmed they have a note that was written to a loved one by mass shooting suspect Robert Card before he killed himself. I describe wouldn't it as a explicit suicide note, but the tone and tenor was that the individual was not going to be around and wanted to make sure that this loved one had access to his phone and whatever was in his phone. At a news conference this morning, Maine Department of Public Safety Commissioner Mike Sanchuk confirmed the note also included bank codes. He said authorities are working on search warrants to gain access to cards. Phone records saw shock opened the news conference by confirming the card died of a self -inflicted gunshot wound. Eighteen people were killed and dozens more injured Wednesday in the mass shootings.
A highlight from Bitcoins Most EXPLOSIVE Bull Market Ever Is Coming! (Here's Why)
"Last week, on October 16th, we watched Bitcoin jump from just below 28k all the way to $30 ,000 in less than 10 minutes on the release of a fake report by Cointelegraph. That fake report was going to be the BlackRock ETF apparently finally launching. Then late Monday night on October 23rd, we saw prices absolutely destroy resistance and hit $35 ,000. All of this explosive price action has come from an excitement about the incoming Bitcoin ETF. It has gotten a lot of people interested in the prediction of what will be in fact happening when these ETFs are finally approved. Now while no one can give the exact number of when the bull market is going to top, in this video we are going to be diving deeper at the surrounding circumstances as well as how much money could actually flow into Bitcoin's price action to help you better understand just how significant these ETFs are and why this bull market just might be the most explosive one yet. It's time to discover crypto. Now before we get too far, let's make sure we lay the basis of what an actual ETF is. An ETF is a publicly traded investment vehicle that tracks the performance of an underlying asset or index. This is different from a stock because stocks only track the price action of one company. ETFs are a popular way for investors to get exposure to the value of an asset like gold or oil. They usually trade on traditional stock exchanges and their value should rise and fall when the asset increases or decreases in price. Now the first ETF launched all the way back in 1993 and they quickly became a popular way for investors to invest into a basket of assets all at once. More than likely you have heard of this ETF, it's called the S &P 500. When you purchase the S &P 500, instead of buying shares in 500 separate companies, the singular ETF lets you gain exposure to all of them combined all with one purchase. While we have had Bitcoin futures ETFs for a while now, which allow investors to trade future price action of Bitcoin, the news is currently flooded with stories about Bitcoin spot ETFs. A spot ETF is where a centralized entity like BlackRock purchases a large amount of Bitcoin, but then allows other investors to use the stock market to invest in Bitcoin at specific price and also take profit. But the Bitcoin would always belong to BlackRock, not the investor. Effectively, you could invest in the price movement at Bitcoin at any given price immediately without having or ever worrying about actually holding that crypto yourself. If you ever heard of the phrase, not your keys, not your crypto, BlackRock is essentially going to be holding and purchasing all of your crypto for you. Now for those of you who are currently holding Bitcoin and have learned about the advantages of self -custody, you might be asking why wouldn't the masses as well as the institutional investors just buy their own Bitcoin? Well while it seems like that should be simple, it actually can be a little complicated. While I personally would always advocate for self -custody, there are a couple of reasons that somebody would prefer an ETF. One of the biggest reasons is going to be just because of regulation, but they also may just not want to have to deal with the risks that come with and all of the burdens of self -custody ownership of a spot Bitcoin. An ETF would be approved by regulators and managed by a firm that would buy and hold the Bitcoin on their behalf. So they have nothing to worry about at all. In July of 2013, the Winklevoss twins with their Bitcoin trust filed for the first Bitcoin ETF proposal ever in the United States, yes, 10 years ago. It was rejected along with every other subsequent proposal for years. Then came along the ProShares Bitcoin strategy ETF and that became the first Bitcoin futures ETF available in the United States on October 19th of 2021. The purpose Bitcoin ETF used the trading ticker BTCC and made its debut in Toronto in early 2021. According to its issue purpose Investments Inc, this ETF invest directly in physical slash digital Bitcoin. And that's where things stand of as today. As I said before, there is a Bitcoin's futures ETF available on the US market, but not yet a spot Bitcoin ETF. But if the SEC does and has approved a Bitcoin futures ETF that claims to be investing directly into Bitcoin, then why hasn't it approved a spot Bitcoin ETF just yet? Well, that's the question. I think it's shocking that we don't have a better answer to that question. Nobody really knows. There have been a lot of applications, several rounds of frustrating congressional testimony by his ugliness, Darth Gensler, the vague. But none of this has actually ever yielded anything concrete other than a reluctance to allow Bitcoin to further integrate into the existing financial system. Now, Gary Gensler, everybody's favorite human being, got his start at Goldman Sachs. And there has been a lot of speculation that Gary Gensler wants to become the secretary of the Treasury after Janet Yellen. This would allow him to do the bidding of his old buddies on Wall Street. In other words, he's deliberately stalling while trade five bankers scramble up to catch up and bring the market centralized options to compete with Bitcoin. J .P. Morgan, for example, deployed its JPM coin for corporate clients in Europe in June of twenty twenty three and has been rushing the rollout of its onyx coin systems to the market. Now, no one can actually say for sure, but from the outside looking in, it sure seems like something corrupt is going on somewhere. I mean, it's never like JP Morgan's committed market manipulation in the past. Now, the SEC is currently reviewing applications for spot Bitcoin ETFs from the likes of Blackrock, Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Wise Origin, Vanick, Bitwise and Valkyrie digital assets. They recently delayed all of these again, but they are going to have to either finally approve or deny many of them by March of twenty twenty four. Oddly enough, this falls very close on the calendar to the estimated date of the next Bitcoin halving, which is currently projected to take place near the end of April twenty twenty four. And even more interesting, during a panel discussion on ETFs at CC Data's Digital Assets Summit in London, former BlackRock managing director Steven Schoenfeld, and I don't know if I'm butchering that name, who now serves as the CEO of Market Vector Indexes, predicted that the US SEC will approve a spot Bitcoin ETF within three to six months. Another ex BlackRock director, Martin Bednal, now CEO of Jacobi Asset Management, speaking at the same time at the same event, said that he also believes the SEC will approve all of these Bitcoin ETFs together. Now, this is to avoid any signs of market manipulation and make sure that BlackRock's not looked at as the favorite from the SEC. But if the approval of all these spot ETFs syncs up with a 50 percent reduction in a new issuance of Bitcoin, that could provide the basis of a very powerful bull run, a huge drop in supply, combined with a vast amount of new capital entering the Bitcoin market and generating demand. But how much demand? How much are we really talking about? And how much would the price actually move? Well, the combined market caps of these firms is around seventeen point eight trillion dollars. Yes, that's a lot of capital. The assets under management and all of this is hard to capture exactly because companies like Vanguard, State Street and BlackRock all have leaders who sit on each other's boards and they all effectively own each other in some way or another. Now, this makes it pretty hard to precisely estimate. However, going back to Stephen Schoenfeld, who may have mentioned before, says that his into Bitcoin, specifically into investment products over the next three years. Now, Bernstein estimates that the crypto fund management industry will grow to over five hundred billion dollars of assets in the next five years. And then there are lasered eyed maxis like Michael Saylor who think that Bitcoin is just going to go to infinity. So what's realistic to expect in terms of inflows and how much would that move the price of Bitcoin? Well, again, this is tough to say. But in March of twenty twenty one, Bank of America published a research note with some interesting observations on the subject. They claim that, quote, Bitcoin is extremely sensitive to increased dollar demand. They claim that it would take at least two billion dollars worth of inflows to move the price of gold by one percent and over two point two five billion to move 20 year plus treasury bonds by one percent. Thank God we print money. But Bitcoin was much easier. The analyst said, we estimate a net influence of Bitcoin of just ninety three million dollars would result in a price appreciation of one percent. He also added, looking at detailed block chain records, we find that the largest addresses have not been selling in aggregate since the beginning of the pandemic. That was back in twenty twenty one. And since then, whales have continued accumulating and supply held by long term Bitcoin holders has hit an all time high. So the supply of Bitcoin is still decreasing and Bitcoin is still very sensitive to increased spot demand. So let's have some fun and do a little bit of moon math. If we're looking at investment firms with a combined total of seventeen point seven trillion dollars of assets, let's say that they move just about one percent of that money into spot Bitcoin. That would be about one hundred and seventy seven billion dollars worth of new capital inflows into spot Bitcoin using Bank of America's estimate of about 90 million dollars to move Bitcoin up one percent in price. That would mean that in one year, the price of Bitcoin would rise a little bit over nineteen hundred percent. Now, at today's price levels of about thirty four thousand dollars per Bitcoin, a one thousand nine hundred percent increase over one year would put Bitcoin comfortably over the six hundred and forty thousand dollar price level. That to me seems wildly bullish and way too high. And I want to emphasize that there's a lot of estimation and assumption going into that calculation. But there is no guarantee that these spot Bitcoin purchases are going to be market orders and directly impact that price. And there's no way to know how much selling might be done once these numbers start to run up. Still, though, there's no denying that the mass approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs, combined with a new Bitcoin halving, would bring about a huge increase in demand alongside a huge reduction of supply, very similar to what we saw in 2004 November when Gold launched their ETF in the November of that year. That's just what I think. Let me know down in the comments how you think all of this is going to play out. Will the SEC approve a spot Bitcoin ETF or continue to keep them shut out of the market? And how much money do you think institutions are going to be bringing into Bitcoin once the ETF actually gets approved? Or do you think secretly they're already accumulating? That's all I got for this one. Make sure to smash that like button and subscribe to the channel to keep yourself educated on all things crypto. That being said, I'll see you all at the top.

America in the morning continues its fifteen past and off duty airline pilot is being charged of with dozens counts of attempted murder after he allegedly tried to shut down the engines during an Alaska Air flight on its way to San Francisco. More on the story from correspondent Jackie Quinn. We've got to try to shut down the cockpit. Authorities in Oregon, where the man was arrested after the Verizon Air regional jet made an emergency landing. Say that forty four year old Joseph Emerson, an off duty pilot for the airline owned by Alaska Air, had been allowed to sit in a cockpit jump seat for the flight to San Francisco. The plane's two pilots radioed to air traffic controller's as heard on live ATC dot net. Doesn't sound like he's causing an issue in the airport. I think he's the dude. Other than that, we want law enforcement to get on the ground and park. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office says Emerson's being held on eighty three counts of attempted murder and reckless endangerment, along with one count of endangering an aircraft.

A highlight from How Bitcoin Could EXPLODE To $74,347 In 84 DAYS! (MATHS Explained)
"Today is a very serious show. First of all, I want to go through the maths and I want to show you the maths of how Bitcoin goes from where we are today to $74 ,347 in about 84 days, not 85 days, 84 days. I want to show you the maths behind it because I think it's actually quite fascinating and it's actually very, very, very realistic. Probably the most compelling case that I've seen for a price prediction in a hell of a long time. Then I want to talk about this. I want to talk about Joe Biden arriving in Israel earlier today. We saw images of Joe Biden arriving in Israel. So I want to show you why I believe that this may be the beginning of World War III. I think we may be in a perfect, perfect, perfect storm for the beginning of World War III and ultimately for probably the demise or the decline of the United States as a superpower. We're going to talk about that today on the show. So as you can see, a very serious show. Then I'm going to show you some good news, some bad news and some fake news for XRP. We're going to talk about that. I want to talk to you about the Phantom hack. I want to talk to you about a couple of other old coins and then at the very, very, very end of the show, if we get to our target of 1100 likes, I'm going to be giving away free tokens in an amazing launch that actually happens tomorrow. So serious show, fun show, lots to do, lots to get through. Let's go, guys. I see a lot of you here are saying present. You're present on the new channel. Congratulations. Welcome, welcome, welcome.

I'll tell you why I'm so excited to show because I don't believe in price predictions. I think people who make price predictions, you're sure to to to to to get them wrong. I like price predictions when they filled with maths. And I'm going to show you the maths behind how Bitcoin actually does go to seventy four thousand three hundred and forty seven dollars in the next eighty four days. I'm going to show you the maths behind it. I also want to talk about where we are in the market cycle, because there seems to be like a battle now between the halving and the ETF. And we're going to talk about the battle of the halving versus the ETF, because regardless of why, where you think we are in the market cycle right now, there is a battle. The battle is a very strong battle. The halving cycle says that the price of Bitcoin is going to go down. The ETF cycle says the price of Bitcoin is going to go up. And we need to understand which side of the fence do you sit on and and whether or not you agree with any of the market cycles. And then, as I said, at the very end of the show, I want to give away only forget over one thousand one hundred likes. I'm going to give away two hundred and fifty dollars tokens to to a new launch, which I think is going to do like a 10 or 20 or maybe even 30 X tomorrow. And you're going to win them today and you're going to get your tokens today. Basically, you're going to get your tokens today. So let's go. We've got a big show. Excited to be up. Let's quickly look at the bubbles just to see where we're at.

Check it out at aitoday .live slash list. That's aitoday .live slash l -i -s -t. Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host, Kathleen Walsh. And I'm your host, Walsh Melzer. And we really are enjoying this AI Today glossary series that we've been on for the past, oh, many months, maybe even more than months. It feels like we've been doing it for quite a while. And I think the reason why we're so excited about it, well, I know the reason why we're so excited about it is because you guys really like it. We could tell just by looking at the downloads, we could tell by the feedback that we're getting that you're all enjoying this glossary series because we're defining terms, even terms that may seem that people already understand very well, which is great. I think the point is, one, not everybody does understand it as well as you might think they understand it. And two, you need to have a vocabulary sometimes to communicate with others, whether you're sort of in management communicating to data science or machine learning engineers or the other direction or even inside your team. Sometimes there isn't a good common understanding. So this has been the reason why we've done that. And of course, we've spent so many of our other podcasts talking to practitioners who are doing AI, doing AI right using CPMAI methodology, which we talk about, as well as the common reasons for failure, our automation to intelligence series. So we have been going over this since we started back in 2017. So going on six years now for the AI Today podcast. So hopefully you've been enjoying it. And we encourage you to continue to reach out to us and tell us maybe about some other terms that you think people continue to use, abuse, misuse, and we will dive deeper into it and we'll continue to have this glossary series as long as there are terms that need to be explained. Yes, we will. And also we have enjoyed hearing from our listeners, especially as it relates to this glossary series. So make sure to subscribe to AI Today if you haven't done so already so you can get notified of all of our upcoming episodes. As Ron mentioned, we do have more in the glossary series, but we also have some really great interviews as well as additional topics. If you've listened to our podcast now for any number of years, you know that maybe some of these terms we've brought up before. Or if you've taken CPM AI training and certification, then some of these concepts and terms have come up as well. But we wanted to spend time on today's podcast presenting a few terms. Maybe you've never heard of them, or you weren't quite sure how they fit together. So we're going to be going over black box, explainable AI, and interpretable AI. So at a high level, black box, in case you've never heard of it, is just a system that doesn't to understand how specific inputs result in specific outputs. Because we really don't have an understanding of how this works, this is especially true with deep learning. A lot of people talk about black box with deep learning. Relying on black box technology can be dangerous. We talked about how we, in previous podcasts, these idea of algorithmic discrimination, you know, and just maybe trustworthy AI, how are we really just relying on this technology that we have no idea what's going on, that can be dangerous. So without understandability, we might not have trust. So we've talked about how we can, you know, erode trust. We don't want to be doing these things with our system. So to trust these systems, humans want accountability, and they also want explanation. But we understand that maybe we won't always get explanation at the level we're looking for. But we do want to make sure that there is some accountability, and we're not just going to put these systems out in the wild and go, well, whatever decision it comes up with, that's what we get. There's no human oversight. There's no human in the loop. We want to make sure that we're being smart about this. So getting verifiable explanations of how machine learning systems make decisions and let the humans be in the loop is really key to all of this. Now, not all machine learning approaches are inherently explainable, as I talked about with deep learning, but some are. You know, some are more explainable than others, and we'll get to that in a moment. But before we do that, why don't we talk about what explainable AI is? Yes. So there's a term on the market in the industry called explainable AI. It even has its own acronym, XAI. And the idea of explainable AI is that we want AI systems that not only provide their predictions or things that they do when they're doing inference and generalization, whatever they want them to do, classification, regression, clustering, used a bunch of terms that you should know now if you've been paying attention to our Glossary podcast. These are the things that machine learning models provide after we use these algorithms to train on data. But the problem is that the algorithms that we use to create these models don't provide the explanations. And so, well, in general, right, they don't provide the explanation. So we want to build these AI systems that provide explanations at the same time that they're building the model. So this is, again, we need to understand how algorithms and data and models work, right? Because usually when we're building a machine learning model, we take training data, we feed it into some algorithm that tells the computer how to learn with some settings, and then the output is some model. But the theory of XAI is we want to get two things when we output from this process, the learning process. Not just the model as the output, but we also want this explainable explanation model. Needless to say, this is still research. People have not figured out how to build clearly explainable systems, especially for these much more black box algorithms like deep learning. There are some algorithms that when you use them to build the models, they end up in more nature understandable and explainable. But then there are other algorithms that when you use, you train them with data, they result in models that are really not. And there's a reason why you might need explainability. You may be like, well, why do I need a system to tell me why I came up with something? Well, there may be a legal reason. Car ran into someone. Loan was denied. Someone's fighting you on that. Something happened where the system made a recommendation. You lost a lot of money. So having some explanation would be kind of handy, wouldn't it? So our parole decisions where your life might be dependent on a machine learning algorithm. So let's first find out, like, you know, try to understand what does it mean that some algorithms are more explainable than others and kind of get an idea of how that what that means. Exactly. So we had said, you know, OK, deep learning can be this black box technology. It's not really explainable. But that does that's not all the algorithms that are out there. Right. We've had podcasts on many others. So decision trees, for example, they are more explainable because you can actually go back and see, you know, all of the leaves and branches and how it came to the decision that it did. So this idea of random forests with that, that's more explainable. We had also talked about ensemble methods. So we're taking different things, putting it together. Well, OK, maybe depending on how many how many models we have, it can get a little bit trickier, but it still can be explainable. We have Markov models, Bayesian, Naive Bayes. So we had talked about how some of them just are more inherently explainable, but some are not. So when we're debating on which algorithm we want to use, there's this idea of explainability and accuracy. And it's often a tradeoff, but it also depends on the application. So if we want to do facial recognition, for example, we know that we're going to have to do deep learning. So then we're going to have that tradeoff, right? It's going to be less explainable, but we know it's going to be more accurate. This is something that you need to continue to decide. So what's your use case? Do you absolutely need explainability or not? What's the end result? What is this being used for? So, you know, again, there is no one algorithm that rules them all. There is no one algorithm that's better than another. It's just you're going to have this tradeoff and you need to understand that when you go to pick the algorithm. And there's sort of a related idea, sort of an acknowledgment that machine learning algorithms, especially the more sophisticated ones that have proven to provide some fantastic results, are not going to be explainable. And so there's this sort of softer idea called interpretable AI, which is that, OK, well, if we can't get an explanation, can we at least understand what were the main factors that contributed to the decision? I mean, I know exactly, but I could say, well, you know, with some percentage of likelihood, you know, these were the factors that led to this particular outcome. And that's the idea of interpretable AI, which is the ability to provide a reasonable understanding of how an algorithm, which is actually really the model that was generated by that algorithm, arrived at its result, even if the machine learning algorithm itself doesn't have any explainability to it. So so they provide some cause and effect relationships. So you can think, you know, if there is some loan decision system who is a decision tree, that would be really easy because you can look at the model and you can say, oh, well, is this age, this income, this demographic, this zip code, whatever. That's the reason. But if I use some neural net and it just goes seventy five percent chance, deny, I can't like look at the nodes, but it could tell me if there are these new approaches, these additional algorithmic approaches that we can use that say this input was weighted 80 percent, this input was weighted 10 percent. This input was weighted five percent. And I could say here are the contributing factors. So you could think of it like a root cause analysis, some failure analysis. And, you know, this all relates to these ideas of algorithmic transparency, which we talk about in our Ethical and Responsible AI podcast series. You can learn about that. And actually, this is something that we do in training. We have a whole course and curriculum just focused on building ethical and responsible AI systems. There's a framework that involves a lot of questions that you can address and answer. And as you develop your ability to answer these questions, you can start tackling some of these harder problems. So this is something we encourage you to take a look at. We will link to our CPMI Plus E, which is the ethics add on to the CPMI certification, as well as our Ethical and Responsible AI podcast series. So you can dig a little bit deeper into not just understanding what these terms mean, black box, explainable AI and interpretable AI. But what do you need to do to actually put these things into practice? Exactly, because, as I mentioned, knowing them at a high level, that's great. So that if they come up in conversation, you've at least heard of them before. But being able to put it into practice is something totally different. And that is where CPMI comes into play. So for our AI Today podcast listeners, if you haven't taken the course already, we've put together a free intro to CPMI course, and I encourage you to check it out so that you can learn more about CPMI and how it can benefit your AI projects. It's free. So, you know, just click on the link, register, and then you'll be good to go. If you'd like to dig deeper into the methodology and really get a more comprehensive understanding of how you can apply this for your projects for project success and also become CPMI certified to enhance your career and understanding of how to run AI projects, then go to cognolytica .com slash CPMI, where you can sign up for the training and upon completion of all of the training modules and exercises, you will become CPMI certified. We'll link to both of them in the show notes as well, including the CPMI plus E plus ethics as well. So if you'd like to dig deeper into that area, you absolutely can. I know that some of our podcast listeners have already taken that course and given us some feedback on it.

A highlight from Wednesday of the Twenty-Eighth Week in Ordinary Time A Time of Lectio Divina for the Discerning Heart Podcast
"A time of Lectio Divina for the discerning heart. Wednesday of the 28th week in ordinary time. As you begin, take a deep breath and exhale slowly. For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of this day to the Lord. Say slowly from your heart, Jesus, I trust in you, you take over. Become aware that he is with you, looking upon you with love, wanting to be heard deep within your heart. A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke Chapter 10 verses 1 through 9. The Lord appointed seventy -two others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs to all the towns and places he himself was to visit. He said to them, The harvest is rich, but the laborers are few. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to his harvest. Start off now, but remember, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Carry no purse, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you go into, let your first words be, Peace to this house. And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him. If not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is set before you. Cure those in it who are sick and say, The kingdom of God is very near to you. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more, give the Lord an opportunity to speak to you. The Lord appointed 72 others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself was to visit. He said to them, The harvest is rich, but the laborers are few. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to his harvest. Start off now, but remember, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Carry no purse, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you go into, let your first words be, Peace to this house. And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him. If not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is set before you. Cure those in it who are sick and say, The kingdom of God is very near to you. What did your heart feel as you listened? What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more, through him, with him, and in him, listen to the word. The Lord appointed 72 others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself was to visit. He said to them, The harvest is rich, but the laborers are few. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to his harvest. Start off now, but remember, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Carry no purse, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you go into, let your first words be, Peace to this house. And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him. If not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is set before you. Cure those in it who are sick and say, The kingdom of God is very near to you. What touched your heart in this time of prayer? What did your heart feel as you prayed? What do you hope to carry with you from this time with the Lord? Let us now close with a prayer to the Father that Jesus gave us. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

"And it's the same thing I've told you about the Sabbath. We see in Genesis 1 through 18, before the law came, that the Sabbath was observed. This is this overarching universal principle for the people of God. And I'm submitting to you that it's the same principle here. Look at the way Paul carries it forward, specifically into the new covenant in 1 Corinthians 9. This is the most formative of those, and then I think we'll move on from this subject. Let me say, the reason I'm going to this depth, guys, we don't even pass a plate here. We don't believe in giving under compulsion. That's something that needs to be done in your heart between you and the Lord. We don't want to manipulate that, anything like that. In fact, if you walk up afterwards and try to give me money, I will refuse it. Not out of arrogance, just out of principle for this. But this may not be something that I run across in the text for years to come, okay? That's the only reason I'm plowing this ground now. That's it, okay? Don't read into that, please. Paul says this, 1 Corinthians 9. Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard without eating any of its fruit? Or who tends a flock without getting some of the milk? He says, do I say these things on human authority? He says, does not the law say the same? Again, for it is written in the law of Moses, you shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain. Is it for oxen, he says, that God is concerned? No, that's not the point, right? There's a greater principle. Does he not certainly speak for our sake? It was written for our sake because the plowman should plow in hope and the thresher thresh in hope of sharing in the crop. If we have sown spiritual things among you, is it too much if we reap material things from you? Notice spiritual material. He says, do you not know, now he points to the Levites, do you not know that those who are employed in the temple service get their food from the temple and those who serve at the altar share in the sacrificial offerings? And he takes all that metaphor, and I'm trying to hurry here, and says, in the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel. And let me clarify again. He said they're living. He didn't say they're luxury. Guys, I'll stress it again. I abhor prosperity, theology, health and wealth stuff. I abhor, all your elders here, abhor those things. And abhor, hopefully in a righteous way, the men who try to take the gospel and get rich off of it. Try to fleece the people of God, squeeze every ounce they can out of them while they're struggling to make ends meet and whatever. Say, give to me and you'll be blessed. We abhor those things. What did Jesus say? You received without paying. Amen? You give without pay. See that? The gospel is not merchandise. But yet, but yet, these aren't antithetical principles. But yet, it's the responsibility of the people of God to fund the worship of God and the mission of God, the missions and evangelism of the gospel going out to the world. Those two work together. And somehow, we've got to harmonize it all together. All right, well, let's look at verse 8. I think it's a little surprising, but it's good. It's good for us to wrestle with. Jesus says this. Whenever you enter a town, now notice, this is important, he's going from house to town. Okay? Remember, back then, it wasn't like the western melting pot. Jerusalem was probably, we know, was mixed with Jew and Gentile. Most of these little towns and villages, they would have been either a Jewish town or a Gentile town, Samaritan town, whatever. They were kind of segregated by ethnicity. Right or wrong, it's the way it was. Well, now he's saying not just when you go into a house. Now when you go into a town, remember, they're now allowed to go not just to Jewish towns but all towns, and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Now, why would Jesus give that instruction? Not like he sent them with food, right? So what's the point here? Well, I think there could be two possibilities. The first is that he's expanding that call to ministerial contentment that he's made, that don't go from house to house, right? In a sense, he's saying don't complain about the provisions. Don't be hard to please as a gospel minister. Don't be petulant and demanding. Be content. Be thankful for what you are given, for what you are provided for. I think that's very possible, and it could be both and with these, but I lean toward the second one that he's telling them not to be stumbling blocks to the Gentiles over kosher foods, and that certainly requires more explanation than I have time for, but I think we can see a similar thing in Paul's exhortation to Christians in 1 Corinthians 10. Now, we know this context of liberty of conscience, right? That's the broader context of what we're about to read here. Notice what he begins that treatise on religious liberty with. He begins it with this, and it's so important. Let no one seek his own good but the good of his neighbor. Let no one seek his own good but the good of his neighbor. That's what he begins that treatise with. Then, he says, with that heading, eat whatever is sold in the marketplace without raising any question on the ground of conscience, and here he's not talking about pork, okay? Here he's probably talking to Gentiles. He's talking about food that's been sacrificed to idols, okay? Now, guys, if we were encountered with such a thing, what would our initial response be, probably? We're not touching that, okay? That's evil stuff, okay? He says, eat whatever is in the marketplace without raising any question on the ground of conscience. He says, here's why. Idols are nothing. Is there really any mystical power, any mystical darkness conveyed to that meat? No. At best, it's demon worship, at best, okay? He says, the earth is the Lord's, all of it. The fullness of it belongs to Yahweh. It's all his. The cattle in a thousand hills, the pigs in a thousand barns, whatever. I can't think of what that's called, where they say it's all his, ultimately. Okay? Now, there's an issue here. I don't have too much time for it. Jesus is potentially telling Jewish men they can eat pork, okay? So let me say, is the earth in its fullness Christ's? God's not a trick, thank you. Yes, okay? Think about what he said when we looked at that Sabbath plucking incident, okay? He's the son of man. The Sabbath is his. It's observed in deference to him. Leviticus 11 is served in deference to him, right? He's the Lord and master of it all, okay? Just think about that. Now, what's verse 27? It actually applies here. If one of the unbelievers invites you to dinner, okay, and you are disposed to go eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the ground of conscience. You don't say, hey, let me make sure. This hasn't been like sacrifice to idols, has it? That's what he's saying. He said, don't even ask. Don't even ask. Just eat it, okay? But it's not like let go and let God. There are actually like ethical holiness considerations. Look, verse 28. But if someone says to you, this has been offered in sacrifice. He says, then you don't eat it. What's the difference? An idol's still nothing, right? The earth is still the Lord's and the fullness thereof. See, what do we start with? Let no one seek his own good but the good of his neighbor. What does that convey to your neighbor if he leads off with this food with sacrifice to idols as though that were something mystical, as though that were something special or honorary or something like that? He brings, if that unbeliever brings that into focus, see, then you have to take a very different stance for the good of your neighbor. See that? For the good of your neighbor, for the sake of conscience, he says. Brethren, this is so often the case in our Christian life is that we're called upon to set aside our preferences, to set aside our desires, set aside what even makes us comfortable for the spiritual good of others. What's the reality? The reality is that ultimately our lives are not about us. They're not about our preferences. They're not about our desires. Our lives, we don't live for our own happiness. We don't live for our own satisfaction. Ultimately, for what do we live? We live for the King. We live for Christ. We live for his glory. And the Christian ministry then and even the Christian life is prioritized like this. Number one, the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Number two, the good of others, not ourselves. And any benefit then that comes from those things, or any benefit that comes to us, I think is meant to be incidental to those two things. At least, I'm not saying don't do private devotions for your own spiritual growth. I'm saying in the things that we go out and do, the way things motivate us. We ought to be pursuing the good of others and the glory of God and let the chips fall where they may as it pertains to us. What do we read at the beginning? Is serving, is pursuing the glory of God going to bring us happiness and popularity? Sheep in the midst of wolves. Sheep are generally not happy in the midst of wolves, right? And we could go on and on. Brother will deliver you over. Father will deliver you over. Your own ethnic people will deliver you over. That's not what we're called to. All right, look at verse nine. I'll be quick here. It sums up the work. There's nothing new in it from the 12, although do notice that those same attesting signs, those miracles that were meant to validate the message, the deposit of truth that was being laid down, they're being done not just by the 12, but by the extended group under Christ's authority and their authority. It says this, Heal the sick in it, in those towns that you come to, and say to them, The kingdom of God has come near to you. See, in that one little verse, we have the sum and substance of Christian ministry and of Christian mission. We have meeting the physical needs of the destitute. Are we called to that? Reform folk who tend to focus on lofty doctrine, are we called to meet the physical needs of the destitute? Not a trick. Yes, we are. For the sake of meeting their physical needs, not just a means to a greater end. That's called loving your neighbor. Does God set aside the command to love your neighbor for the reform? No, he does not. No, he does not. What else? Evangelizing the lost is contained within that. See that? You might even stretch it and say, there's implied in it the discipling, the sanctifying, the promoting the spiritual growth of those sons of peace, of the ones who were found in that proclamation of the kingdom. Of course, ultimately, what's foremost in it? Heralding the king. Pointing others to the king. Going forth and saying, the king has come. For us, it's the king has come and the king is coming. He's made peace through the blood of his cross and he's coming to exercise judgment. See, that's what we're called to. Those things, I think, are the sum and substance of our lives and our ministries. All right, let's just pray before we move on and we'll just ask the Lord to burden our hearts with those priorities.Our Lord, we praise your name. We are your servants. You are our master and king. We acknowledge and confess that. Lord, please, put it upon our hearts to do your work, to be faithful servants, to help the needy, to proclaim your power, to proclaim your salvation, to proclaim your coming, judgment. Burden us, Lord, for lost souls. Burden us for struggling saints. Lord, burden us most of all for your glory. Lord, please, make that the driving passion of our existence, that you would be known before men, that you would receive glory from them all. Please help us to that end. We ask in Christ's name. Amen.

"Now, this is secular. This is just talking about agrarian workers, farmers, animal husbandry, things like that. So hear what I'm saying there. To do that, see, once they've worked for you, are the wages that they've earned your gracious condescension and gift to them? No. So he's saying, no, if they've worked for you, they've earned that. That's theirs. You have no right to withhold it from them. Now, I'm just dealing with this text. Don't apply that too far yet. But think about this. That's in the context of secular vocation. We need to understand because the gospel writers point to that and make spiritual parallels, so we need to understand it. But within the law, there was manifold instructions given regarding the provision of the Levites. Here's one that says it succinctly. One of many, you shall not neglect the Levite who is within your town. Why? Because he has no portion or inheritance with you. Remember, the Levites, what did they do? What was their task? Facilitating the worship of Yahweh and everything that entailed. The teaching of the people, the evangelizing of the nations, the preparing the sacrifices, the cleaning, the carrying, all the things that went into the religious worship of Yahweh, that was the task that God had given them. And as such, they didn't have the time or the land to go out and make themselves wealthy like their eleven other tribes, their brethren. And as such, God said, you must provide for the Levites out of your abundance. Now here's the thing. I think we're all familiar with this. And I've shifted on this back and forth over the years a lot, particularly with the principle of tithing. But we tend to think that that's all kind of delimited to the old covenant, to the Mosaic covenant, if you will, God's covenant with ethnic Israel. And as such, it too has been abrogated, set aside, and there are entirely new principles now in play in the new covenant. Let me tell you something that challenged me, and you just be good Bereans, but it challenged me on this many years ago, was Abraham, when he was returning from the slaughter of the kings, Abraham, before or after the law, centuries before, before or after Moses, centuries before, Abraham, when he was returning from the slaughter of the kings, he meets a priest of God named Melchizedek, a king and priest of God in Salem. And how does Abraham, the father of the faith, respond to Melchizedek? He pays tithes to him. You see that? Like before the law, centuries before the law, this was in the heart of the people of God.

"So making peace through the cross. Look, verse 16, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. See that. And he came and, look, this is what he proclaimed. He came and himself proclaimed peace, proclaimed shalom to you who were far off, Gentiles and to you who were near. But both were separated from God because of our unrighteousness. He came and made a proclamation of peace. See that's our calling, brethren, to all of us to call men to be reconciled to God. Now when that call, when that imperative falls upon the ears of a son of peace, then the peace of God will rest upon them. It will remain upon them. If it's refused, what we're to do is simply go to another house. We're to leave the judgment up to God. We need to understand that. We don't need to, like James and John, the sons of thunder, a couple weeks ago, we don't need to call down the fire of heaven upon those who refuse that imperative to be reconciled to God. We just go to another house and we leave that judging up to God. He will judge. We're not going to read them. Scan your Bibles verses 10 through 16. We're going to talk about it, Lord willing, next week. He will judge those who refuse the call, but that's his prerogative. We need to understand that. We don't live by the sword. We wield the sword of the Spirit. We're called to be messengers of reconciliation. Paul says that explicitly in 2 Corinthians 5 verse 20, and we'll move on. He says, therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, emissaries, God making his appeal through us. As such, here's what we do. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. That's that offer of peace, that shalom that we're to lead off with. Look at verse 7. It also contains a transcendent principle of the kingdom of God. It's the one I've mentioned I'm fearful of. I don't think I have time to qualify this as I need to. I'll try to do it along the way. Let's just jump into it and read it. Remain in the same house, he says, eating and drinking what they provide, and then go to the end. Do not go from house to house. I want to be clear about a lot of things here. The context here is sustenance, the provision of sustenance for those who are going to be engaged in this harvest of souls. What I didn't say was surplus. I said sustenance. There's a big difference in those two words. Remember, Christ had told these folks to leave, to go without a bag of money, without a bag of food, without any extra clothing. He had told them to go and just to rely on him to meet their needs. What verse 7 is telling us and telling them and us by extension is that this is the means, this is the way that God is going to practically meet those needs that he's promised. It's through those sons of peace that they're going to encounter along the way, those sons of peace who are going to ultimately benefit, be reconciled to God through their ministry. He tells them that, first of all, we'll deal with this, that when they found these type of provisions, they don't need to be moving around from house to house, trying to get better accommodations, trying to get greater love offerings, build up a surplus of money or maybe a surplus of food. Again, I'll say, hear me, the gospel ministry is not meant to be a means of gain. Hear that and I'll stand by that. I know it needs to be qualified and there are real world applications where you say, how can you justify that? The gospel ministry is not a means of gain, gain being the key word there. If we can talk about that afterwards, I stand by the statement in its most basic sense. These folks were meant to be content with the Lord's provision from the Lord's people. That much is clear from the text. Don't go around trying to improve on those physical economic conditions that have been provided. Now, that's the burden on gospel ministers in this text, but we also see a burden given to those who receive their peace, those who are the recipients of their ministry. In short, it's for them to ensure that those who are engaged in that labor, that their needs are met so that they can continue in that labor. Like I often do with things like this, I'm going to try to show you how this is a transcendent principle for God's people. It goes beyond the specific instructions here and there's this universal, not application, principle is the best word, sorry to be redundant, that we see in the scripture. First, let's read our text again, verse 7, and notice what I left out in between the ellipses before. Jesus gives them this reason to support what he's just said. It says, remain in the same house, eating and drinking, what they provide. Why is that not wrong? Why is that not, what's the word, being a mooch? None of us like this. We're all uncomfortable with this, and we should be. Something's wrong if we're not. Why is not Jesus' words, but this concept of mooching off people? What reason does Jesus give? He says, for because you do this because the laborer deserves his wages. Now, this is familiar language to us, right? It's employed in scripture a lot of different places. We're probably most familiar with Paul's. I'm not going to expound it, but just read it. Statement in 1 Timothy 5, 17, 18, let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who notice the same motif, labor in preaching and teaching. But watch, Paul does a similar thing. Probably even quotes Jesus here. Quotes, I don't know, the law and maybe Jesus here. I really don't have time to explain that more, sorry. The scripture says, you shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain, and, quote, the laborer deserves his wages. Now, I think we're pretty familiar with Paul's many sort of applications of this text in the New Testament. But I think we're less familiar, we tend to be less familiar with its Old Testament origins. And I think that's what's going to be more helpful for us to see its universality. Most reference Bibles, et cetera, are going to point to one of two texts, this being the one. You can see it's not an exact quotation from it. But I think this is the principle. Leviticus, what is that, 1913. Look at the way it begins. You shall not oppress your neighbor and rob him. Now, that's kind of strong language, right? That's the language in a sense of violence and injustice, et cetera. Well, how in this context is the neighbor being robbed and oppressed? Well, it's his wages being withheld. The wages of a hired worker shall not remain with you all night until the morning. It's hard for us to understand this because it's in the context of day laborers, of what we call hand-to-mouth economics, where these laborers would need what they earned that day in order to provide food for their family the next day. They didn't have things in stores, they didn't wait two weeks for their checks, et cetera. Just a different economic level of people here. And he's essentially saying don't, for the sake of leveraging their wages that they've earned, don't withhold them from them. Say to make sure they come back the next day or they do good work for the rest of the week. You can fill in the blank with ideas. He says to do that is to oppress and rob the laborer.

"All right, look at verse 5, and we'll look at 5 and 6 together here. Verse 5 says, whatever house you enter, first say, peace be to this house. So this is something, as I take it, of a benediction, right, where you're wishing good, goodwill towards someone else, right, like shalom, or the way we would say, God bless you. When we say God bless you, we're not saying we have the authority to impart to you the blessing of God. What are we saying? Essentially, may God bless you. I hope that God blesses you, right? It's a gesture of kindness. He says, whenever you enter a house, notice house to begin with, first bid them shalom. Verse 6, and if, notice, a son of peace, the object of the harvest, is there, your peace will settle in. Your peace will rest upon him, but if not, he says, it will return to you. Bear with me here, but I think this reminds us of the Lord's command to Joshua in the conquest of Canaan. Remember what he said, so when you draw near to a city to fight against it, so they're going out to conquer, offer first terms of peace to it. Remember that? I'm skipping a bunch of stuff, but verse 12, then if it makes no peace with you, sorry, but if it makes no peace with you, but makes war against you, sorry, then you shall besiege it. Now I want to be clear, okay, I hate that I have to say this, but I do. Jesus also said, all who take the sword will perish by the sword, okay? So this Christianity isn't Islam, okay? The great commission isn't jihad, right? The weapons of our warfare are not carnal. They're not physical. We wage spiritual warfare on behalf of Christ. So this spiritual analogy I think here is that our preaching and evangelism, it will, if refused, if done biblically, and if refused, it will be used as judgment against those who resist it. But Jesus calls us to engage the opposition with terms of peace. And this isn't an oscillated reference I'm going to show you. But why do you think that would be? Why do we lead off with peace? Because that's what our king has accomplished, right? Look at Ephesians chapter two. But now, and it's all over, but now, look, in Christ Jesus, through union with him, you once who were far off, separated from God, hostile to God, and in many with God, have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Why is it the blood of Christ that brings you near? Because the blood of Christ cleanses us from the thing that separates us from a thrice-holy God. What's that? It's our sin, right? It's our sin. Look at verse 14. For he, well, it's on the screen, sorry. Paul goes on, he says, he himself, meaning in his person, is our peace. How is that? Because it's through our union with him and what he accomplished in his humanity that we now have peace with God. I'll elaborate on that in a minute. He says he has made us both one, Jew and Gentile, you'll see the context, and has broken down in his flesh, meaning what he did as a man in the incarnation on our behalf as our representative and substitute, he's broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility. How did he do that? Verse 15, by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances. How did he abolish it? He didn't just abolish it by arbitrarily setting it aside, saying, I no longer have those standards. He abolished it by abrogating it. He abrogating it by satisfying its demands. He abrogated it by fulfilling it. He abrogated it and set it aside for those who were in union with him because he satisfied its demands for perfect obedience and perfect living righteousness and because he took upon himself what its righteousness required for punishment due to its transgression. See, he accomplished all that as a man in the flesh on behalf of those in whose place he stood and in doing so, he has become our peace and abolished the law so that, look, he might create in himself one new man in place of the two. See that reconciliation.

"And look at this. There's actually, I think, an increased sense of urgency here with the 70, more so than there was with the 12. Look at what's in addition there. He says, carry no money bag, knapsack food bag, no spare sandals, and greet no one on the road. Now, let me give you a little word of caution here, okay? This is not giving you the license to be mean to people, to be rude. It's not to say that Jesus' ideal for ministry is for you to be a jerk, okay? The point here is diligence, not that. I'll let Sproul explain it for sake of time. And this is, let me, before I read it, I mention to you often the necessity of not interpreting the scripture anachronistically. In other words, not interpreting the scripture as though it was written in your time and culture, right? By trying to understand from it the intent of the authors and how it would have been perceived and received by those who heard it, and then make applications from that understanding. That's very important here. Sproul explains it. He says it doesn't mean that the 70 were called to be curt and impolite, refusing to greet people they met. He says, but, this is it, according to Eastern custom, if you met somebody on the way, it was considered polite to spend a lengthy time in chatting about the weather and so on. One commentator I read said this could take up to an hour, and this was kind of expected for travelers. It went in with that, went along with that Middle Eastern hospitality that we've spoke about a lot in the last few months. Sproul says in first from that, Jesus is calling his disciples to dispense with those formalities and telling them that they have no time for, quote, trivia. See, and that's it, I think. This is how urgent the mission was. They didn't have time for packing, right? They didn't have time for preparation. In conjunction with that, they certainly didn't have time for these empty platitudes, right, that would just go on and on. The harvest, as we saw last week, it was much too plentiful for that. They had to be focused on their task, which we'll talk about later, but essentially it was evangelism. They were to be focused on that, and they were to leave the logistics up to the Lord of the harvest. Now, are there principled applications in that for us? I think huge ones. I think this is the foremost right here from Deuteronomy 8, 3, simply that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. If you can remember that in its context, I think that's the essence of what he's saying here.

"John 15, 19 says, if you were of the world, the world would love you as its own. That's a powerful statement. But because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore, therefore, therefore, the world hates you. See that? It goes on in verse 21 to say, all these things they will do, we skipped over them, he says, they'll do to you on account of my name. So I just want to emphasize to you how we need to be aware of this, brethren, okay? It's increasingly becoming the case in Western society, hence my continual emphasis on it. We need to be innocent as doves. What does that mean? We need to have ethical purity toward people. We need to love our neighbors, we need to correct our opponents with gentleness. All those things, but we need to be wise as serpents as well. All right, look at verse four, and it begins those instructions that I mentioned before regarding the methodology of this mission, that is, of course, with the exception of what we saw there in verse one, that two by two reference, how we see that in the New Testament, missions in evangelism almost always occurred in at least pairs, if not larger groups being sent out. My premise to you then was that that's something we need to recover. In any event, let me remind you what I reminded you then as well. This is a very particular, very short dispensation of ministry. Because of that, we need to be careful that we don't take the particulars of it and apply it to how we do ministry today, but we do need to take from it those overarching principles, those transcendent principles from within it that can be supported from elsewhere in Scripture, and we need to make application from those in how we do ministry today. Now, let me prove that assertion to you before we even read the verse. We read before, back in chapter nine, how Jesus had sort of forbidden the 12 then from making preparations for this journey. Well, later on, Luke 22, 35, he tells the same 12, but now he had just reminded them when I told you to go out without preparations, were you supplied for? And they said, yeah. He says, well, now let the one who has a money bag take it. Likewise, a knapsack, a food bag, and let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. So, see, for that particular little short mission that he had sent the 12 on back in chapter nine and like we're seeing with the 70 today, he told them, make no preparations. Later, he says, make them. So, the particulars are not necessarily for us, but the principle behind that very much is. All right, look at verse four, sorry. To begin with, we see the same language. Carry no money bag, no knapsack, no sandals. It's almost the exact same thing that he told the 12. And I think basically it's just meant to convey the urgency of the task and their dependency on the Lord of the harvest, if you will, to provide what they needed to fulfill the task. I don't think, and I told you this then, I don't think that he was telling them, before you go on this journey, you need to empty yourself of all the money you have on your person. You need to take all the food that you might have on your person and get rid of that and then go barefoot. That wasn't the point. The point was that this mission is urgent. You need to go and you need to just go now and you need to depend on the Lord as you go.

"Father, we are grateful for your holy word. We're grateful for your grace, condescension, and revealing yourself to us through it. Thank you for your work of preservation that has brought us to this point to where we have such readily and available access to it. We praise you for that. We praise you for your kindness in that. Lord, we confess that our fallen hearts so often would seek to suppress your word, to set it aside, and to understand it in a way that's in error or a way that's convenient to the lust of our flesh. We ask for your protection from those things this morning. I ask that you would open all of our hearts and minds. I ask that you would help me to present this accurately to your people and that we would all grow from it in our knowledge of you. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen. All right, well, look back at verse three with me. As I mentioned before, I want to just take a little bit closer look at it than what we had time for last week. Let's read it again in isolation. Jesus told them, as he begins to send them out, he says, go your way, behold, I'm sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. We talked a lot about that metaphor last week. That's on sermon audio if you want to check that out. I'm not going to spend a lot of time on that in particular today. I just want you to see the sobering reminder in that, that when it comes to Christ and his kingdom, no one in the earth, no one in the world is neutral. No one stands in a neutral position when it comes to Christ and his people. I say that to remind us that if we're genuinely going to be doing the work of Christ, we can expect to face hostility from the world. We shouldn't face it from the church. That's another discussion altogether, a needful one, but it's not one I have time for this morning. There's ample biblical evidence to teach us that we should expect hostility from the world. Remember what Jesus has said to the 12. I didn't have time to go here last week. Let's read it briefly today when he had sent them out in a similar mission. He told them, behold, I'm sending you out of sheep in the midst of wolves, same metaphor. So be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. He warned them, beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you, notice, in their synagogues. These are their own ethnic kinsmen, the 12 Jewish apostles. You will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake. Skipping some stuff, verse 21, look, even brother will deliver brother over to death. The father, his child. Children will rise against parents and have them put to death. What could be the cause of such a rift and such close familial bond and ties as that? Well, there's the one thing that always makes the separation. See, you'll be hated by all for my name's sake, see? And that's what it all boils down to. And that's just what I want to emphasize to you, is that it's hatred of Christ that is ultimately underlying this animosity of the world toward Christ. Have you ever noticed, I mention it a lot to you folks that are here often, but we have a lot of visitors, so I'm going to say it again, the attacks, the animosity that's toward Christianity is not equally dispersed among other world religions, is it? Why is it that they alone, even though they commit far fewer atrocities, far fewer, why are they so despised and hated by the world, see? Because everyone else is on the same team, ultimately. And finally, look at what Jesus said here.

"Let me invite you to follow along in your Bibles. We've come to Luke chapter 10, and we're going to begin in verse 3. We talked about verse 3 last time, but we're going to pick back up with it just a little bit this morning and then move on. If you'll remember, we spent the majority of our time last week looking at the differences and the similarities between this sending out of the 70 here and the sending out of the 12 apostles that had happened at the beginning of chapter 9. The biggest difference of those that we focused on the most was this clear expansion in the scope of the ministry of the 70 here over and above that of the 12, not meaning necessarily that it was more important, but just that the audience was broader. Remember that the 12 had only been sent to Jewish towns and villages and had been restricted from going into the Gentile towns and villages. Now the 70, you can see that in verses 1 and 2, now they're being sent out into every town and village that would be on the way down to Jerusalem. In addition to that, we focused on about three major points. I'm just going to mention them briefly for sake of time, but hopefully if you were here that will bring things to your mind in a way that will be helpful. We spoke of just the enormity of this harvest that they were being sent out into, the deficiency in the number of laborers and the need, the necessity if you will, to depend on the Lord of the harvest, to look to the Lord of the harvest in order for himself to provide those laborers in order that the full harvest would come in. That being said, I'm going to jump on in, we'll come and we're going to focus most of our time this morning on verses 4 through 9 looking at this methodology. Let me say, there's a lot of folks visiting here, which given what I have to deal with this morning makes me all the more fearful and nervous. Our typical MO here is to work through books of the Bible verse by verse, go all the way through them, and that's what we've been doing for a couple of years now in Luke's gospel on Sunday mornings, and as such we've come to verses that if I'm being honest with you I would prefer not to even have to address, and it's something that fears me more than talking about gender distinctions or marriage or sexuality or politics, for me in particular, but hear my heart here that I'm constrained by the word of God to cover these texts with as much zeal, enthusiasm, and thoroughness at least attempt for all three of those things as any other text of scripture. So I just wanted to say that up front. Be gracious to me. All right, well let's begin reading in verse 1, then we'll ask for the Lord's help. This is the word of God. After this, the Lord appointed 72 others and sent them on ahead of him two by two into every town and place where he himself was about to go, and he said to them, the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way. Behold, I'm sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no money bag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, peace be to this house. And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick in it and say to them, the kingdom of God has come near to you. All right, let's pray.

"For the mid to upper seventies both days and tomorrow we could be also looking at some wildfire Hayes pushing into Western Washington. This isn't expected to be a significant event, but it could drop our air quality down to a moderate level. So if you are in that sensitive category or have respiratory problems just ahead so That better air quality. By Wednesday afternoon, a meteorologist debut counting become a weather center. Right. Abby Downtown Seattle temperature now 72 a new push in the fight against the Delta variant Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announcing today that the Department of Defense is moving forward with a policy mentioned earlier this month. Now that the Pfizer vaccine has been approved, the department is prepared. Issue updated guidance requiring all service members to be vaccinated. ABC's Mark Remillard joins US on the camo news line in Mark FDA. A full approval for the fire deserve vaccine today, making it The first of the shots to go beyond that emergency authorization status. So what is the significance of this when millions have already taken it? I think for the average person, um there's not too much of a difference here. I you know, it's perhaps in the hope is, I think from what we've heard from President Biden and and members of the CDC and FDA is that this will nudge some people who have been over on the fence, perhaps to go getting their shots. That is one possibility, so there could be some some significance on that front. But I think for the average people, and particularly especially Below are the millions of people who have already gotten vaccinated. It doesn't really change anything. The emergency use authorization that was granted to these vaccines. All three of them, not just Pfizer were not typical emergency use authorizations. A lot of times those things can be given, um to an immediate need for something or an immediate question about whether or not something could be effective in treatment. Look no further than Hydroxychloroquine that was used to thought to potentially treat covid. 19 turns out that it wasn't effective and it had some side effect concerns and that emergency use authorization was pulled. But what was different about the vaccines was because these vaccines we're going to be given to millions of otherwise healthy people, The FDA said. We're not going to give you the emergency use authorization until you go through clinical trials. Which is more akin to being closer to full approval. So what happened here was you already had this tremendous amount of data that was available prior to the vaccines getting their emergency use approval, of course. Now what they've done is they've gathered fighter in this case has gathered six months of safety and efficacy data. Now the We're beyond that from those clinical trials and now included that in that full approval, so we haven't even better picture now that it's gotten full approval. But I think for you know, the average person, especially those who've already gotten vaccinated doesn't really change that much because of the sheer volume of data that we already had going into this. And with this full approval, the president is urging private companies to require their employees to roll up their sleeves. Reason. Most people America don't worry about polio, smallpox, measles, mumps and rubella today. Is because of vaccines. It only makes sense to require vaccine to stop the spread of covid 19 like you said. He's hoping this will help those who are on the fence. Get over the fence. Yeah, absolutely. And I don't mean to downplay in any way these significance of the full approval. It is significant, but I think it's possible that it will push from people over the fence who have been waiting for that. Full approval. There's there's very likely people who have been in that camp and now may go that get the vaccine because this I think the other really big, significant change that might occur from this is more companies and organizations now being willing to require this. There were already companies and organizations that were willing to take that step, while it was still only under the emergency authorization, and courts had already been largely siding with those decisions, allowing companies and organizations to do this. Now you have full approval that might give them even more backing and give companies and organizations more confident in making and taking a step like that. So I think that's another thing we're going to see. And you heard from John Kirby there just a second ago about how this is going to already begin for the military soon, so I think you're already starting to see the dominoes fall. In that way. You're going to see more more companies and organizations start to require this as a result of this decision, So that is significant to ABC s Mark Remillard. Thanks, Mark.

"Cherry Glazer Way state and local headlines. One in 12 homes in California is at high risk of burning in a wildfire. That's, according to a new report by UC Berkeley and an environmental think tank called Next 10 and the study says the state government maybe dramatically under estimating the costs of future wildfires. KCRW's Kaylie Wells explains. If the state had to replace all the houses in high or very high hazard risk zones it cost about $610 billion. The study's co author, Robert Stansky says the estimate is based on dated housing maps from 2000 and seven so it's likely much higher. I don't think we've come close to totaling what the costs are, The longer you look at it, the more different costs there are And the and those costs are one way or another, a burden on all California's and that doesn't even include things like insurance premiums In the seventies and eighties, insurance companies paid out 100 million per year in fire insurance claims. By 2017 and 2018. That number jumps up to $26 billion. The study says One of the best fixes is to build more housing and urban areas and incentivize fire victims to move there rather than rebuilding in the same spot. For KCRW.

A final confirmation came yesterday from the company behind the controversial project, ending a decade long battle. It is a big win for environmentalists and a defeat for the oil industry. NPR's Jeff Brady has covered the keystone almost from the start, and he joins us now. Good morning, Jeff. Good morning. Well as we both know this is something pipeline opponents have been fighting for years. I remember reporting on this issue years ago, when I was based in the Midwest. How are these activists responding now they are definitely celebrating. I talked with Jane Club from the group Bold in Nebraska, which started the campaign against the Keystone XL because landowners there didn't want the pipeline crossing their property. And also there was a lot of concern that it would threaten the Ogallala Aquifer Club says she spent a lot of time in a minivan going to rodeos, bars and church basements, trying to convince people to join her in stopping the pipeline. You know, In the early days we were organizing and every single person you know, other than my family and the pharmacies lands is going to be taken, told us that we were never going to win that There is no way that you can battle a big corporation and actually win. Now that they have one club says she was experiencing all kinds of emotions. She's happy, of course, but also she's relieved that it's over, and the pipeline won't come through Nebraska. And as you know, the oil industry pushed hard for this project. What are you hearing from the industry? Yeah, This is a big glass for the oil industry. If that pipeline had been built, it would transport oil from Alberta down to the Gulf Coast For decades, the industry and the company building the project, TC Energy, said it would have generated thousands of jobs, construction jobs, mostly, which means they go away. Once it was built, it would have created only about 50 permanent direct jobs. Still, those arguments convinced former President Trump to reverse Obama's decision to block the pipeline. Then, when Biden became president, he reversed the reversal and blocked it again without any options. Now the company is pulling the plug, and the American Petroleum Institute said this was a blow to US energy security. The industry often argued that it's better to get oil from friendly Canadians than from hostile governments overseas. But that argument it lost some steam as domestic oil production increased because of fracking. Now the U. S. Actually, exports oil and an important distinction here was the kind of oil the Keystone XL would have moved. I mean, it's different from what people might think of, right? Yeah, it's not the kind of gushes up from the ground. This has to be mined and I visited one of those minds in Alberta. It's just overwhelming. There are these huge pits. They look like the Grand Canyon. There's a heavy tar smell in the air. Some people call this tar sands oil. It has the consistency of play DOH, so it needs extra processing to turn it into crude oil. Usually that's heat, which means producing this oil emits more greenhouse gases. That's why environmental groups focus their efforts on stopping this pipeline. They want that oil sands or tar sands crude left.
