"So we're dealing with the red day the hangover from last night's FOMC meeting It's like a delayed reaction to what Jerome Powell said last night We're gonna have to talk about what Jerome Powell said because at the time when he was speaking Nothing happened to markets But afterwards what we realized is exactly this we realized that what Jerome Powell did last night was he may have actually broken the market What is it that he said that actually scared people and why is it that right now if we look at Bitcoin? Here we are. We are at twenty six thousand five hundred and forty. You remember before FOMC last night. We were at twenty seven thousand four hundred We thought we were gonna get a pump We also touched the top of the Bollinger Bands and now we're gonna come down if we start coming down again to the bottom of the Bollinger Bands we could go back down to Twenty five thousand one hundred and fifty five. So what did he do? What did Powell say? What did Powell do that has set off this reaction that has set off the Dixie look at the Dixie The Dixie is now had one two, three, four, five six, seven eight nine We are in the tenth green weekly candle for the Dixie and to make matters actually even worse if you go into the daily the Dixie has just had a golden cross now You know what a golden cross is the golden cross is the opposite of the death cross When you have a death cross usually prices continue to go down when you have the golden cross That's when prices usually go up and I'll take you to the last time that we had this golden cross Look what happened to the Dixie.

Fresh update on "sheldon" discussed on Crypto Banter
"But we feel the percentage of days that are sponsored relative to the inventory that we have is very low. Like, problem is for us, we got to show up every day. It takes us two hours of prep. It takes us two hours to be there. And it kind of... And it takes us nine hours of talking to people on WhatsApp. Yeah. Bitching. So, I know you're running around, but you need to focus on filling up Spaces. I get that everything's got to be sold. I think, like, everyone's got to be a little bit realistic as well. And keep in mind that, like, the market is still in the depth of a bear market. Filling everything every single day at the moment is honestly not a reality. I think we need to set a target and almost say, like... Like, by next month, one third of all Spaces must be sponsored. One third. Like, I think if we can get to one third in October, let's evaluate again in October. Maybe push to 40% in November. Yeah. And then try by the end of the year to get 50% of the days that are full. Yeah. So, I think you've got a great opportunity here because I've never seen so many exhibitors. I actually asked them. There's 300 exhibitors here. So, maybe what you should do is get a list of the exhibitors. Literally. Yeah. Identify the ones that you think can be good sponsors. Yeah. And then check them off literally one by one. Now, you've only got two days to do it. I think a lot of the projects there, they are just there because they've got VC money and they're taking an exhibition stand. I don't think after the money they've spent on the expensive exhibition stand, there's too much money left for additional media sponsorships, et cetera. So, like, it looks like we're in the middle of a bull market there yesterday. But if you actually look under the hood, I don't think that's the case. In October, one in every three Spaces sponsors. It's unrealistic. It's unrealistic. Thank you. Your brother. Your brother. Now he's having a bad day. Thank you. Cool brother. Good luck out there. It's a challenge. But he's the best there is. I'm up for it, but we'll see. We'll see if I can achieve it. It's not guaranteed. I've got to say, working with Rand, I've never met a more relentless human being in my life, which 90% of the time is great, but 10% of the time is so frustrating because once he has an idea of his mind, in his mind of what's right, there's literally no stopping him. But I got to say, it's evolved very well. It's only getting better. And I think it's going to literally be the biggest show in the world for crypto. Yo Dave, I know you and Annie have got a meeting today at OKX to talk about sponsorship. Are you on the way? Thank you. So I'm here at OKX offices in Singapore. We are in the process of negotiating a new deal. It's a hard decision for me because I'm loyal. They were the first ones to support me. And it's up to David to get this across the line because at the end of the day, if I lose out by joining Vanta, there's no point in me saying Vanta. I've been faced with a couple of challenges before. This one's a little bit different though. It's a little bit unique. So I'm waiting for David to come back. David was meeting with his manager and I was meeting with my manager at OKX, waiting for them to come down. I feel like you've just been sacrificing so much for the new deal because what you've already built is so strong and it's worth so much more than all these other channels combined. I feel like they need to offer something crazy in order to even make it worth it for you. I was basically told we will continue working with you if you're on your own, which is not good. But for every problem there is a solution and I believe that there will be a solution found. I hear and I see both sides, but there's just something in me that's like, I can fucking make this machine work for everyone. For exchanges, for me, for Vanta. You don't need Vanta. It does, it makes it harder, but I'm not ready to give up on the challenge yet. I do think there's a solution and I think I'm smart enough to find it. How's it going so far? Yeah, unbelievable, unbelievable offers. Did you get the deal? You can't do that now. You can't do that now, this is the guy that's going to decide on the deal. I haven't even pitched in the deal yet. One of the most serious conversations of my life. Basically what was said was we sat down with the head of OKX. What he said was we want to continue to support her, but we can't do it through Vanta. And essentially they were saying stay on your own. But to me the funniest thing was the look on David's face. You can tell he just wanted to get out of that room. I've never seen someone want to exit a meeting so fast. David was like, right, that's it? Three times he did that, I was like I know you want to get up and leave this table. So I'm going to stay here. I just got a text from Dave and apparently the meeting didn't go very well. In fact, he's coming to update me now, but apparently it was really bad. Let's just go straight to the point. In fact, not only did it not go as expected, but it went a whole lot worse. Look, now as a leader I've got to decide what I'm going to do. It's troubling me. I don't know what to do. I don't know how to solve this problem. I don't know how to get Annie into the system and to explode her in a bear market with the current sponsorship packages. I just need to come up with something. The decision isn't if I'm out or if I'm in. The decision is how do we win anyway? And I've got an event later. I don't actually really feel like going to the event because to be honest, I don't like losing and this got me. All I can think about is how to fix this problem. I need to fix this. I'm the leader. It's all on my head to fix this. I can't go back to the office in Cape Town and tell people we lost something. Ladies and gentlemen, the award for Alpha Casso, it goes to... Before you go, so this award is the Picasso. It's the most creative. And then you decide to do 20 days straight up, both times. Why? Because when we do things, we want to win. So we just got back. Yeah, it's late. It's 3 a.m. So we won an award tonight. The award was for Bybird's most creative partner. I think it was called the Picasso Award, which was great. But as I said to you, I was troubled by the fact that I couldn't solve the problem of what we faced earlier. But during the event, I don't know what happened to me, but my mind started to race and I solved the problem. Not only I think I solved the problem, but I actually came up with a solution, which is going to make our business way bigger. Instead of Sheldon being his link under Banta, he gets a link under a new account called Stipr. Ah, got you. And then Crypto School, like we do with Crypto School. So Crypto School is one. Banta is another. It's a property on its own. It's a property on its own. Then each one of these has their own budget and their own BD card. Ah, I got you. But now if it's not, if it's a different account, it's a different account. It's a completely different account. And that's where the confusions come in for Banta. Yes, yes, yes. For their own independent business unit, they put their own sponsorship in their funnel from there. It's a way to go. It's a way to go. It's a way to go. I love it. Yes. It's going to open up a whole new section. Yes. Okay, nice. Nice. Yes. At the moment it runs in one box. Yes, no, no, no. And so they've got one call centre. Here's a box, here's a box, here's a box, here's a box, here's a box. And that's exactly the problem. So I'm in my hotel room trying to get ready for a party. I get this message from Ran and it says, Annie, with like 20 eyes on the end. And he says, I figured it out. And I'm like, aren't you at a party? Like, just go have some fun. Annie, I just heard it to Annie. Annie loves it. Right, this is right up Annie's list. Dude, that's five ex-sponsors, bro. The problem is that these guys are looking at it on a per account level, right? And they're saying, look, we can't allocate money per account. No problem, we'll just open five accounts. One for crypto school, one for banter, one for Annie, one for Sheldon, one for Carl. Now we've got five accounts. Now let's have another discussion. And he sends me this picture that he had drawn. Somehow he got a piece of paper at this party in a pen and he draws out this map of this whole basically new structure that he's going to build around this problem. We just need to take that and insert it into banter for all the other products. And we'll just have the most killer platform that ever existed. And that's the solution. That's how we're going to get the exchanges to say we were wrong. They could do it together.
A highlight from "They've Taken All My Money From Me!" | Ben Armstrong
"So is BitBoy broke. At least that's what he says. He says he's lost everything and he's asking people to help him. So listen to this. Let's listen to this together. Don't watch the video. Guys, I've been under threat of blackmail. I've been extorted for my Lamborghini. That's gone. I've been under literal death threat. That literally told my wife they were going to put me under the ground, put me under concrete over money. Literally said that I've got a recording of it as well as we have the police report. That's what said to my wife. Remember who's on it. We're all supposed to be protected here. So anyway, so BitBoy says he's broke and that he is getting death threats. We're going to talk about that. We're going to also show I'm also going to show you is asking people to help him and they are actually helping him. He's raised over $100 ,000. We're going to talk about that today. Also on the eve or on the day of the big FOMC, this is where we're at. We've got Bitcoin trading at $27 ,000. And if you look where that is, it is just, I would say, touching that resistance level that Gary spoke about. But I think that this is not the chart that everybody should be watching in crypto. In fact, let me show you another chart. And I don't think enough people are actually watching this chart over here because as long as this chart over here is going down, we can't get into a bull market. So if my predictions are going to come right for September, we talk about that chart that I just showed you. Also, what else have we got? We've got the SEC warning that they're coming after exchanges. Again, look at this. So SEC now warning that they're going to be coming after exchanges. And this time it's not the exchanges that you think they're coming from. They're not going for Binance and they're not going for Coinbase. They're going for the decentralized exchanges. And you may be in trouble if you haven't been using a VPN. So we need to talk about that. Then, I mean, if the SEC are attacking the DeFi and attacking exchanges, they are just blocking adoption in the United States. And I'm going to show you who's capitalizing in the adoption in Asia. You can see that Asia is really, really, really flying when it comes to adoption. We're going to talk about that. And then lastly, I want you to get this story. So there is a story or there is something that's come out of the FTX case. You're going to laugh when you hear this. But Sam Bankman -Fried's dad, Joseph, asked Sam for a million dollars salary and they were negotiating his salary. And what Sam said is, he said, I can't give you a million, I'll give you $200 ,000. And so you know what Joseph said? He said, I'm going to tell mommy. Now, look, if you're not Jewish, if you're not Jewish, now I can say this because I'm Jewish, but if you're not Jewish, you would never understand what it means when they say they're going to tell your mother. Because a Jewish mom can invoke so much guilt in her son that it's probably the worst thing in the whole world. So we're going to talk about Joseph, Sam, Barbara and the whole FTX debacle. And of course, we're going to talk about FOMC. So listen, we've got a huge show today and we've got Annie on the show as well because we've got to decide based on what you guys said. So look, yesterday I asked you guys whether we should join Annie's team, go alone or partner with Kyle. Those are the results. I've got Annie coming on and I think that I think Dylan's also coming on and Sheldon's coming on. OK, so there's a lot going on today, a lot going on today. So listen, let's let's get into the show. There's a hell of a lot to do here today.
A highlight from "DO NOT Buy Bitcoin Now! Here's WHY..." | Gareth Soloway
"I'm back and we're one day before the FOMC Bitcoin still at 27 ,175 now Gareth says Gareth Soloway He says that Bitcoin can get back to $30 ,000 But then he also says that even though Bitcoin can get back to 30 ,000. He wouldn't actually buy it. Listen to this Now interestingly enough, let's talk about how high can price rally right? So, I mean, let's let's talk about it So if you're someone who's saying wow, do I buy Bitcoin now? Honestly the answer is no now But he does think you can go back to to $30 ,000 So listen, what we're gonna do is we're gonna get Gareth on the show a bit later on He's gonna talk to us about what he meant when he said he thinks Bitcoin can go back to 30 ,000 level But he wouldn't actually be buying Bitcoin right now and that's ahead of the FOMC now. Remember it's a big FOMC why because we haven't heard from Jerome Powell since the 25th and 26th of July, so we haven't heard anything from Jerome Powell since the 25th and 26th of July and Remember that since the 21st and 26th of July we've had two very big inflation readings So the big question is what is Jerome Powell going to do tomorrow? Is he going to engineer a soft landing that is one thing that he could be doing or or or is he going to Fly the plane like that plane that got lost I think what we need to do is we need to spend some time talking about this because honestly Honestly, honestly, honestly I Mean, how can anyone? Lose an 80 million dollar plane even the Biden administration. Like how can you lose an 80 million dollar plane? No one can lose an 80 million dollar plane. Not even the Biden administration So this we've got a lot to talk about today. We're also gonna talk about finance We're gonna talk about finance in the SEC. They did go to court yesterday There was a little bit of FUD that came out of the court case yesterday Usually as you know, I don't really pay attention to the finance FUD But this time it's coming from the same people that warned me about Celsius and they were right So I took the side of Celsius and they were right So as I said, I don't usually pay attention to finance FUD because I think it's like usually just bat And I think there's too much finance FUD But I do think we need to talk about what came out of the hearing yesterday. So listen, I'm back We've got a huge show today one day before the FOMC. Let's go guys I Mean we have to laugh we have to laugh Not only did they lose a plane But then like to make matters worse they want us to help them Find the plane now. I mean, this is a true story They lost an 80 million dollar plane and they want us to help them find a plane That's the type of discussion that I usually have with James like I lost the soundboard James. Where's the soundboard? I lost it on the way to work. Anyway, we'll talk we'll talk about the plane later. There's a lot to talk about Listen guys, I'm back. I'm back in the studio. We've got a lot to discuss today Got a big show ahead of the the FOMC Also, I want to talk to a little bit about Asia I want to talk to you about Binance I want to talk to you about altcoins because we are getting bounces in the altcoins as you can see right here on the bubbles But it seems like it's stuff going up one day and down the next day Which means that there's no new capital coming in we know that and what that also means is that we're getting Asset money rotation between between one place or another and then also as a city later on gathers Garrett's coming on the show So we've got a lot to talk about we're a lot we're gonna be here together But let's talk about remember if you haven't yet subscribed the channel help us because one of the things that I realized in Singapore Was the bigger our channel the bigger the guests we can get on the channel the more attention they pay their pay to us And so when you guys subscribe to this channel when you like this content And we get the content out there and you subscribe to the channel That helps the channel grow that helps us bring more bigger guests onto the channel. That's why we need you I'll bring you the highest alpha per minute show in the world every single day and You will just like the content and then everything's fine. Everything works. It's a symbiotic relationship. Anyway, let's talk about Where we are right now Let's go to the charts what we can see when we look at the charts is that Bitcoin is above 27 ,200 one day before the FOMC meeting now, I heard rumors earlier That the reason why Bitcoin was actually rising is because the mount gox trustee may be forced to delay the distribution of the mount Bitcoin 2024 till that was actually written up by the blocks I heard the rumors much earlier today and then the block wrote something about it They're saying Bitcoin bounce may be due to mount gox delay rumors, but still targeting 22 ,000. That's a fan manager called QCP bitcoins price is largely due to rumors of delay that mount gox may drag their payments into 2024 that's actually exactly what I heard earlier today. So it could be that we may not be getting the mount gox Bitcoin hit in the market. Now you ask yourself. Why would that happen? So you very simply why would that would happen mount gox was hacked in 2014 this this this story took place in 2014 The liquidator like the FTX liquidator earns money on The longer this drags out the more the liquidator and it's almost like think about it like a lawyer Okay so the more this thing drags out the more money that the liquidator makes and it looks like the liquidator is going to continue to Pressure the side of the year now, let's go back to the charts because I want to show you something back on the chart So then if you remember but Kyle dupes said something very interesting. He said look when we get this death cross What will happen after the death crosses, but Bitcoin will go down But then Bitcoin will go up back to the price of where the death cross happened, which is twenty seven thousand seven hundred so so far Kyle's little I don't know if you want to call it a prediction is is actually playing out and playing out exactly like said Gary says we can actually go even to 30 ,000. I actually think that both of them are wrong I think that we may at some point soon this year this this month this year We will break that 30 ,000 everyone. I've been saying it for a while I don't know if you remember but I did say at the beginning of September when everybody was completely bearish about Bitcoin and everyone said oh September's gonna finish down because it finishes down every single September. I said no guys I think September's gonna finish up so far. I'm up five point five two percent So so far it feels to me like like like like I'm gonna look I'm gonna Get this but you must realize what's actually happening here James. What what's for lunch? Scacra doesn't talk but he's chewing here. I can hear the chewing going in my one ear and out and out over there Anyway, what we are seeing here is you need to look at the open interest on Bitcoin and what you realize is that the open? interest is just Completely tracking the price which means that price goes up open interest goes up price goes down open interest goes down That's what's going on here, which means it's just short term Ups and downs so to speak that are happening in the market and it's not real volume or real buying coming in So we still I'm still not convinced that this is the pump that's gonna take us over 30 ,000 But I am convinced that bitcoins gonna go north of 30 ,000 end of September Maybe even early October and I think shaldino shares the same the same sentiment as me because he's just opening lungs and lungs and Lungs and you should I think today you opened another long on the show. Did you guys did you guys watch Sheldon show today? scarecrows Scarecrows don't talk but the children open along yes or no scarecrows He opened us a line along. Okay, so say he did open a lot the guys got big big big kahunas I think the same thing was happening with alts when I look at the alt coins It looks like we're just getting a shift from one old coin to another old coin So yesterday roll, but was up today roll, but is down yesterday rune was up today rune is down and that's exactly what's happening There's no big moves. Let's just quickly check on the one hour time frame. No big moves. No big moves in all coins it's basically just a rotation of Many the good thing is that the fundamentals of Bitcoin and I said I don't say this likely but the fundamentals of Bitcoin have actually Never ever ever been stronger and what I mean when I say the fundamentals of Bitcoin have never been stronger So there's two parts of the fundamentals. The one part of the fundamental is the research So what does the research say? What are the fundamentals behind it? The other part of the fundamentals is something that is unique to Bitcoin and unique this asset class Which is the on -chain data because if you look at other asset classes, they don't really have on -chain data Bitcoin has on -chain data So, you know like when we say fundamentals we can actually just go to the chain and we can just say look Well, what is it? What does the chain say? What is the the data on chain say and here this is where it gets a little Bit exciting so it gets very exciting. The first thing is long -term The supply held by long -term holders up to the highest that it's ever been so you can see the percentage Supply that is held by long -term holds the Bitcoin never ever ever been higher that is Also evident here where you can see that 80 % of all Bitcoin have not moved in the last six months so what we're seeing here is long -term holders keep growing and then when they lot they hold they They hold for forever because it hasn't moved for more than six months What we also see is we see the short -term holders have been capitulated. They're out of the market. We don't see them anymore They were here. They they were good tourists and then we said bye -bye and they were just sending their money back to exchanges When I look at the unchain The unchain data right now and I said I don't say this lightly the unchain data right now looks the most positive that's ever been because the coins are sitting with the people who ain't gonna sell the Coins and when I say anchor solid coins, they holding the coins for for six months plus The sentiment is also very good. And I saw this tweet by Chris Paniski and he He shares the same sentiment that I shared in Asia He was struck by how incredible and what the buzz is that happened in a token 2049. You can see his his These guys are killing my ears Thanks guys. Thanks for thanks for destroying my eardrums. I used to have eardrums now they're gone Anyway, that's his version of what happened at token 2049, but he's been around for a while He says contrasting token 25 20 49 to the first bear market conference. I went to inside Bitcoin in April 2015 the worlds are completely different and that's true because Even though from a pricing point of view, we're in a bear market I'm gonna show you something very very very interesting about where we are in the market The other thing that's happening now, which we haven't seen in Bitcoin for for for a long time Since I got into Bitcoin people have been promising me that the institutions are coming into Bitcoin. It's always been the narrative It's like look we've got to prepare ourselves got to prepare us off Because you know what the institutions are coming in when the institutions come in The price of it coins gonna go to the moon and every time the institutions never came in They launched a Bitcoin futures and bang the the price collapsed So I've always been hearing since I got you That the institutions are coming into Bitcoin when the institutions come into Bitcoin They're gonna bring all the money with him But it's been this letdown because it like as much as I've been hearing about it The institutions just haven't come but they just didn't arrive now the institutions are undoubtedly undoubtedly undoubtedly here So we have got Citibank. They are now Unveiling their own Separate blockchain which is going to which which they're going to start piloting you got this is old news But you got the LSE looking to tokenize assets in the line the stock exchange As your as you will recall if you saw my video about token 2049 in Singapore I thought hey said big bull market he predicts and if you go watch that video see what he said But he basically how he breaks down why the bull market is gonna happen in 2024 he also breaks down that AI is gonna be the narrative that's gonna lead it and then he says, okay Well, then you need to you need to be buying file coin Then a German banking giant will be able to hold a number of crypto currencies for its clients So you can see what's going on here. You can see exactly what's going on Yeah, this industry is becoming more and more institutional Deutsche Bank one step closer to launching a digital asset custody service You've got Japanese banking giant Nomura launching a Bitcoin adoption fund for institutional investors You see what's going on here the institutionals the institutions are here are finally actually getting here but we are in a very very very unique time now because this is What Michael Saylor described when I interviewed Michael Saylor last time you'll remember it if you watch the Michael Saylor discussion This is what he said about where we are now about the unique time that we are now in In the cycle able to pick up the phone and call your broker and buy 50 million dollars worth of it Right. So we're at that stage where we know it's coming but We really haven't plugged Wall Street into the asset yet We're in this in between period which in my opinion is the best time to be it's like, you know the future No one else can act on it. If you if you have a crypto account with a crypto Exchange to buy Bitcoin right now So so you hear what he's saying he's saying if you we know they're coming they just it's like it's like it's like this Imagine a concert, you know, the concerts gonna start everyone's waiting at the door, but the gates aren't open yet You know when the gates open everyone's gonna come in and go to the car the concert you have the inside information But they can't act because the doors are still closed. That is where we are. Now. The institutions are coming in this morning I saw that blockchain capital Which is one of the original og funds in crypto, these are like, you know, these are two brothers original og og og funds in crypto raised 400 and say five hundred and eighty million dollars for two new funds now if you read where did they get their money from? most of the firm's limited partners are traditional institutional investors including University endowments So they've got five hundred and eighty dollars from all of these sovereign wealth funds and guys I mean if you were here in 2017 and you were here in 2018 and you were here in 2019 and notice it you look You know in next year or in two years time you're gonna get five hundred and eighty million dollars Given to two brothers in the United States Who have got a good track record and the money's gonna be given to them by institutional university By university endowment private foundations the writing's all over the world. All you have to do is You just have to Act because it's inevitable. It's completely completely completely inevitable And I know like a lot of you may may be sitting here and going yeah But you're not crypto is full of scams and you know, you know We spoke about keeping our customers happy and how every time we get the big names in crypto coming into our into our industry We destroy them, etc, etc You need to remember that every single technology goes through the cycle and I want to read you something which I saw earlier today which made me smile and and again affirm that I was in the right direction so Visa seemed like a disaster when it was first launched the kind of people who attack new things would have been all over it from From the Wikipedia article it says listen to it says they're talking about visa However, the program was riddled with problems as Williams who had never worked in a bank's loan department had been too earnest and trusting in His belief in the basic goodness of the bank's customers and he resigned in December 1959 22 % of the accounts were delinquent not the 4 % expected the police departments around the state were confronted by numerous incidents of of a brand new crime called credit card fraud Both politicians and journalists joined the general uproar against Bank of America and its new fangled credit card Especially when it was pointed out that the card holder agreement held customers liable for all charges even those resulting from fraud Bank of America officially lost eight point eight million dollars in on on the launch of Bank of America card But when the full cost of advertising and overheads were included the bank actually lost around 20 million dollars I mean if you change the word credit card there and you replaced it with the word blockchain you'd say hell them This is exactly what's going on here.
A highlight from COINBASE IS BUYING THESE ALTCOINS TODAY! (YOU'RE STILL EARLY!)
"We are in the last day of August and it looks like we're going to stay with the downward trend in August. So far we 6 .96 % down for the month of August. I think we've lost this fight. I've got to be honest. I think the fight to make August positive, I think we've got to concede that we've lost it. But now we move on to another fight. The next fight is this 200 week moving average and we've got to make sure that we close above the 200 week moving average, which is 27 ,580 and we've got until Sunday to close above that and to win that battle. That's a battle that we really want to win because we want to remain above the trend. Anyway, in the interim today, we have had the PCE numbers out which is the PCE is the feds preferred measure of inflation. That's what Jerome Powell looks at when he decides where the inflation is moving up and or is moving down. Where are we when it comes to PCE? Well exactly what we anticipated came in 3 .3 % in line with the expectations of 3 .3%. Core PCE is 4 .2 in line with the expectations of 4 .2, but we do have inflation on the rise and we were talking about this today on the banter morning call and we'll talk about the banter morning call in a second, but we're talking on the banter morning call about how yesterday the GDP numbers came in much worse than we actually expected. So this was yesterday's GDP numbers. They grew at 2 .1 % down from a 2 .4 % rate and people were asking. Well, if the economy slowing down, how is it that the markets are doing so well? So why is it that the economy is slowing down and the Nasdaq is still at 15 ,500 and the Dixie is actually coming down. I'm going to talk to you about that because there's something that people don't understand and it's a big concept that we got to talk about today. Then we're going to talk about a landmark ruling for crypto in a very, very, very important court because the same judge that is ruling in the Coinbase versus SEC case passed down a landmark ruling in the case with Uniswap, which changes the playing field for crypto. So we're going to talk about that. What else? There's so much to talk about today. Oh, yes, 75%. That is the percentage chance that the two Bloomberg analysts say that there is for a Bitcoin ETF to be approved, get this, this year. And if it's not approved this year, they give it a 95 % chance for the Bitcoin ETF to be approved next year. So 75 % this year, 95 % next year. We're going to talk about that. Also, Brian Armstrong is actually buying crypto and today I'm going to show you exactly which altcoins because he's buying altcoins. I'm sure he's buying Bitcoin, everyone's buying Bitcoin, but I'm going to show you the actual altcoins that Brian Armstrong is buying today. So this is this is another one. Also, what I want to show you today is I want to show you what caused this huge pump this morning because I think that I found out what caused this. Well, 15, but much higher pump this morning, 25 % pump this morning. The same thing caused this pump and this pump and this pump and this pump and this pump. I'm going to show you what's causing all these pumps. And if I know what's causing all these pumps and if we know what the cause of all of these things is, then maybe we can just catch these pumps every time they happen. So it's not only about the Coinbase pump, but it's actually another trigger that is going to pump. And then I'm going to show you why you may want to have more Ethereum in your portfolio than Bitcoin. Yeah, I said that right. You want to have more Ethereum in your portfolio than Bitcoin. So as you can see, massive, massive, massive share today. I don't even know how we're going to finish on time. I'll try and talk much faster to try and give you more alpha per minute, but we've got to start as soon as possible. So let's go. I see the comments here. People saying BitBoy's a fair guy is leveled up. I think I don't want to talk about anyone's affairs. I think it's all cool. I think in business we can we can challenge one another. We can we can talk about BitBoy. We can talk about the things that he does, but I think that when these things start to impact a person's family and a person's kids, and if it's true, I don't know if it's true or not true. I'm just reading the comments here. I don't want to get involved. I don't want to bring someone's family and someone's kids into something. Whatever it is, I just hope he gets through it and I hope he does the right thing, but we're not going to be covering that story. I think that that's that's where we draw the line. We have been covering the BitBoy story quite a bit, but when it comes to allegations of an affair, we're not covering it. That's that's that's a game we're not going to play. That's a game we're not going to play. Anyway, listen, welcome. We've got a lot to talk about today. I'm excited to have you all here today. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you to all of you that came to our morning meeting this morning, our morning call. What I've realized in this morning call is that if you don't know what it is, it's a call that we have every single morning. And if you just click here, you can add it to your calendar and you can join us, but only 500 people can join. And then you actually join our morning news call where we discuss what we're going to discuss on the show. And what I realized today was that actually the community, the community was actually bringing us a whole lot of ideas of what we should be discussing on the show, which is which was amazing. So a lot of these ideas were actually you guys discussing on the show. And so I want to just thank you before the show. You'll see your ideas actually coming to fruition now when we when we actually live on the show. Let me just switch this off here. Okay, there we go. So thank you. I also want to show you a few other amazing things that we've done with banter bubble. So the first thing is check this. There is a bubble. Where's the run run live bubble? Oh, you took it off because I am live here. Okay, it will pop up again. So we've added an amazing amazing amazing pop mechanism on the banter bubble. So if you don't want to see a bubble, it's like for example, you don't want to see hex anymore. Just pop it. So you click this button over here. Just pop it. Now problem is we're all just getting addicted to just popping the bubbles because actually so much fun. You see how many you can pop. So if you don't want to see these bubbles just keep popping them. Also, whenever we're live, there's a bubble here to remind you that we're actually live and it's not only us. It's Sheldon. It's Annie. It's anybody anybody that's live. It does feature here.
A highlight from A Major Bitcoin Move Is Brewing This Week! (How To Prepare)
"This is decision time for Bitcoin, and it's also decision time for the SEC, who are set to either approve, delay, or deny the BlackRock Bitcoin spot ETF this week. So I think it's going to be a pretty big week in crypto. Of course, the last week, we kind of just moved sideways, not much happened. But in today's episode, which is my weekly watchlist episode, I want to break down exactly what could happen this week, what the key dates are that you need to keep your eye on. And then, of course, as usual, from these weekly preview shows that I've been doing every Monday, I'm going to go through my altcoin list and show you some of the coins that I am watching on the market right now, the reasons why, and also go through some of the market moves that I'm making. So smash the like button if you do enjoy these Monday shows. And without further ado, let's get straight into the video. So not much to update you on in terms of the Bitcoin price. From a price perspective, the only thing I just want to reiterate right now is that we are starting to form a little bit of a flag formation. Technically, this would be regarded as a bear flag of sorts, which does have a higher probability of breaking to the downside from a technical perspective. But we also do have this upper region here, which you can keep your eye on if Bitcoin makes that push up towards the mid 26 ,000 region. So just keep your eye on this flag that's starting to form, also paying attention to, of course, that critical support level at the 25 ,000 level, which was the pivot point for Bitcoin before the initial spot ETF driven rally, which saw Bitcoin rally from 25K all the way to 31K. So just watch this flag at the moment and also keep a close eye on 25K because that is Bitcoin's major support from a technical perspective. Now, what are the key dates that you need to keep in mind? Well, as you can see here, the first deadline for the iShares Bitcoin Trust, in other words, the BlackRock Bitcoin spot ETF is on September 2nd. So that is on Saturday. But of course, because the SEC doesn't usually report on weekends, it's probably likely that we get a response either on Thursday or Friday, and it could happen even sooner. But obviously, that is their major deadline. So if they do want to kind of push it to the very last date, they could do it on Friday. We also have the Bitwise Trust on the first, which is going to be on the Friday, and then a bunch of other, a plethora of other Bitcoin spot ETFs due for their first deadline. Now, this doesn't mean that the SEC has to necessarily give a ruling on Bitcoin on Friday or on Saturday. They could technically just delay to the second deadline, which I guess the probability is that they will just keep delaying. But usually around these events, we do get major news. For example, like a couple of weeks ago, that's when the SEC handed in a request for the amendments of the spot ETF. So oftentimes during these weeks, we do see some sort of response from the SEC. The other thing that you need to keep in mind from a Bitcoin perspective is the Grayscale Trust is also set to have a response by the SEC this week. So I think it's likely either on Tuesday or Thursday that we get some sort of word about the Grayscale conversion from the futures to the Bitcoin spot ETF. So lots of news here could potentially cause volatility for Bitcoin, which makes this week a really important week to stick to the charts and have a look at what's going on and paying attention to that. Now, of course, BlackRock has an exemplary record when it comes to these spot ETFs. That's why it's such a big event in the market, and it really is what the market is hanging out for right now. I mean, we've just been shopping sideways. A lot of participants are showing some sort of apathy towards the market, quite bored, waiting for that next big catalyst. Of course, a spot ETF approval would be that catalyst and a delay into 2024, if we keep getting delays, would definitely be enough to put some suppressory pressure on the Bitcoin price to suppress it down as Q4 kind of macro effects start to affect the Bitcoin price in absence of a catalyst. That's what would happen if we got a delay, but who knows what's going to happen, and the SEC could always chuck a curveball at us in the next week or so. So definitely one to keep your eye on. But in the lead up to some of these key dates, the Bitcoin open interest has actually started to uptick. So I'm on Velo here. We could see that the total Bitcoin open interest, so the amount of total open positions in the futures market, was at $4 .8 billion towards the back end of last week. Now, it's already ticking over into the $5 billion range. And today, we did see a little spike to the $5 .06 bill range, which is the highest it's been in roughly a week. So we are starting to see some positioning in terms of shorts and longs on the Bitcoin price, which is quite interesting. And typically, when we see like CVDs and Delta perps moving higher with price and open interest increasing, that does indicate that a move could start to be brewing here. And it's interesting because you contrast the short term tick up in open interest in line with the fact that the weekly Bitcoin Bollinger Band width is now at its lowest that it's ever been in history. And it kind of paints the picture here that, look, at some point, we are going to get an explosive move, and it could be as soon as this week, because we know Bitcoin is forming this bear flag. We also know that the SEC is set to give some sort of ruling, whether it's an approval, a delay or a denial. And we also know they're going to speak on Grayscale. It could be this week. Lots of stuff happening in China and whatnot as well. But, you know, it could also not happen this week. So we don't know when it's going to happen, but I would just be prepared for volatility on the markets to hit at some point. It is boring right now, but remember that could change super quick, just as we saw a couple weeks ago with that big Bitcoin move. And we do see periods of compression tend to lead to expansion. So what am I doing? Well, this is really what I want to talk about in today's video. What am I looking at? Let's go through all the alts. Let's go through all the trades. Some are short trades, some aren't just longs, and some also longs. So you guys know every Monday I've been doing this kind of the week ahead series where we look at my favorite alt plays for the week and we dissect them and we talk about it. And it's a lot of fun and I really enjoy it. So let's get into it right now. I've got, I think, seven alts to discuss, actually 10, because some narratives are comprised of multiple altcoins. But yeah, basically 10 alts to discuss, some I'm buying, some I'm shorting. It's going to be a lot of fun going through these. Just before we go into that list, I want to give a shout out to one of our official show partners, Link2. If you're interested in investing in tech stocks or crypto companies like Equities, but you don't want to invest in the stock market, but you want exposure to IDOs that aren't available to retail investors, often you need like 100k tickets to get on the IDOs of a lot of newly launched companies. Link2 is a platform that is going to allow you essentially as a retail investor to invest in a lot of these kind of future unicorn opportunities like these tech stocks. I'll give you an example here. If you scroll down, you can see that on their platform, you can invest in Ripple, Chain Analysis, Circle, iTrust, Polysign, Copper, Ledger, a lot of these crypto companies that aren't public companies, but have IDO opportunities through the Link2 platform. Because basically what they do is they get opportunities, they vet them, they do their research, they do their risk assessment, and then they list these companies on the platform to enable you to buy in. Basically the same as you would if you're a wholesale investor, except they're allowing retail to do it through their phone app. If you're interested in just investing in other types of companies, not just coins, but also crypto businesses, then there's a link in the description. I highly recommend checking out Link2 out. Of course, not financial advice towards any specific token on the platform. Do your own research before investing in a specific company, but I think it's a really cool way for you to invest in private equity if you're interested in that, and we partner with them for that reason because I think it's really cool. Okay, let's get on with the video. The first thing I want to discuss from the altcoin point of view is Pepe. We did talk about this on the show last week, so I won't bore you too much, but essentially what happened after the Pepe multi -sig was changed, we had that drama about Pepe being dumped onto the market. The Pepe official account on Twitter came out and essentially said, just like I had mentioned on Sheldon's show last week, that there was internal conflict. And basically, a few of the team members turned on the other team members, they dumped, like they went behind the back of another team member, lots of contradictory stories flying around there, and a few discrepancies that we can really highlight in this text if we want to dive deep. But basically, the TLDR is Pepe is in a very weird spot. It's in a shaky spot. It even got hard forked, and there's like a $30 million fork of Pepe now on the market. So really weird times for Pepe, but from a like technical perspective, I'm looking at this chart going, well, this actually looks good. And it's kind of weird because it's obviously in the face of a lot of FUD and typically when coins go through, you know, such a hardship, they find it hard to recover, right? Especially a meme coin where there's like some sort of element of trust which people rely on. But from a pure TA perspective, I'm looking here at the Pepe chart and I'm saying, well, it still is on support. So if you were interested in it long, you're still getting an opportunity. But the only thing you're going to be wary of is the fact it is starting to form a flag here. It's testing support multiple times. The more it tests, the higher chance it has of breaking down. So it's on my highest probability long ever. And I actually can flip into quite a nice short. But the reason it's on my watch list for the week is because it's at a key level and it has a big decision to make. And I think that if you are asking the question like, is Pepe dead? Is it still a meme coin that's worth investing in? Is it still something we should be trading? The real answer to that question will come next time meme coins have a big move. Because I want to see if Pepe is responsive to liquidity changes in general meme coins. So last time we saw liquidity flood into meme coins, Pepe actually led the pack. And the reason for that is because it was one of the strongest memes. I want to see if the community is still strong during the next meme move. So the only real way to tell whether the market still likes Pepe. And the only real way to validate the long term Pepe thesis here is monitoring how it responds to a broader meme coin move. We don't know yet. We don't know when that's going to happen. But when that happens, that will essentially give me my final verdict on with the long term. Pepe still has legs because if it starts being irresponsive to market moves, we can kind of say, well, it's not really a meme coin beta play anymore. It's kind of like in its own nation. That's not really why we would want to invest in Pepe. We want to invest in Pepe as a high beta way to maximize market moves to the upside during periods where people are going more risk on. Right. So that's my opinion on Pepe. The next token I'm watching this week is Sui. Very interesting things happening on Sui from a fundamental level. I think they've done a really good. Look, I know they had a lot of issues with their airdrop and I think they've done a good job of starting to build a little bit of a community. Their daily transactions of Uptick actually overtook Avalanche and Nia. They're just sitting behind Polygon, actually ahead of Aptos, which is their counterpart, also built on the move language from the formerly defunct DM project that Facebook was running. You see the daily active addresses on Sui also have skyrocketed to the 500 ,000 active addresses range, which actually beats out Polygon and once again beats Avalanche, Nia, Aptos. So they're actually building something pretty cool here and I'm just keeping my eyes on some of the metrics here. TVL also increasing, DEX volumes have been fairly stable around the million range, but the prices come down alongside a lot of these other tokens. So what I'm keeping my eye on, given that we did see a little bit of a volume spike over the last week. So if we go into the chart here, we can see that over the last seven days we had this uptick and then the price significantly dumped. And the reason I think the price dumped after it initially pushed to the upside is because you have this unlock, which is roughly 4 .7 % of the circulating supply that's being unlocked later today. This is quite a steep part of their emission schedule. Then you have another major steep emissions unlock next June and then after that, things become quite a lot easier. But this is a pretty steep unlock today. And for that reason, with 4 .7 % coming into the market, I think there's been a broader selloff. But I don't think you could really assert that it's like necessarily a bearish selloff right now. Although that's how a lot of altcoins end up performing three to four months after their unlocks. For some reason, I've got like this bullish unlock vibe from Sui. I don't know why, but just some of the price action surrounding it, I would not be surprised if this thing pumps. Once again, probably not going to long it just based on my intuition because there's nothing really to substantiate it. If you do want some technicals to substantiate it, though, it's quite interesting. Dan Crypto Trades overlays here the Sui price chart with the Aptos price chart since its launch. And it shows that it's pretty similar. You have the initial pump, then the initial dump, 66%, then its first rally, its lower high, just like we got from Aptos. First rally, lower high, and then eventually sweeps its all -time low. Aptos, we see a couple months after its launch, swept its all -time low and then rallied to the upside. Sui exhibiting a very similar pattern. Is the big rally coming next? Well, I'm not sure. But definitely, definitely keep this on your watchlist as a primary target. It's all point of these shows, right, to build up weekly watchlist and monitor changes in volumes. We see some interesting upticks in volume alongside open interest. And we're seeing price respond positively post unlock. I would definitely be interested in taking along here, especially if Bitcoin is holding up. We have bullish Bitcoin news. Of course, a lot of these alts are going to perform well. Similarly, if we get like bad Bitcoin news, you can start to short the weak coins. Don't know if Sui will be a weak coin though. I think there's a little bit building here. So, and from a fundamental perspective, we can get into it in the future. But Sui is kind of, I was like averse to making any like bold calls within the first few months because I wanted to see how the network developed. But now sitting here like a few months after launch, seeing what it's doing, seeing the projects building there. I think like a firm, I think it's my favorite move programming language L1. And I also think it's starting to differentiate itself a little bit from some of the other newer L1s, which I like. So it's definitely on my watchlist. I'm not saying I'm a huge Sui bull. There's L1s I prefer more. The L1 right in front of you on your screen, Solana. I probably prefer more as well from an investment point of view. But Sui, I don't know, it doesn't have that baggage of having a bunch of bag holders. And I think it could be a strong performer next cycle. But I don't own any more so a trade for me this week. But keeping my eye definitely on the fundamentals there because it is showing some strength. And we got to pay attention to the metrics. And I do think they're going about things the right way despite them probably stuffing up or at least in the eyes of the public stuffing up on that airdrop play. So now let's go into Solana. Also some interesting stuff happening at Solana, namely the fact that NFT volume over the past couple of days has shown a massive uptick, 17 % uptick over the last 24 hours. Lots of NFTs are starting to be transacted on Sol. Network activity still fairly solid. And yeah, just starting to see a few people talking about it on Twitter. It makes my watchlist this week more from a spot accumulation point of view. Because if we look at the chart here, we are on crucial support. I am pretty wary though of like a fake push into the 22 region and a rejection around this 200 MA. So I would love to see how it responds here. What I would like to see is a thrust up, some sort of pull back into this region and then a flip of this 22 region here. And if it can do this successfully, I would be very interested in a large position at 22 hoping for this next leg up to the 27 zone. That would be a sign of strength for me. Although if it kind of does something like this and starts to break down, then yeah, we definitely have a chance of breaking through this $20 zone. So for me, this is based on price action. If this shows a strong push up, I'll be happy to maybe buy into a bit of positive price action. If it starts to break down, that's fine. I'll look to add spot a little bit lower because this is a spot bag that I'm accumulating. And as I said on my Sunday research show, Sol is one that I'm pretty confident in terms of like a speculative alt L1 better. I like the differentiation it has, the market differentiation, having its own ecosystem, having its own community, not being an EVM chain, having a pretty unique value prop for developers, being a high throughput chain and being known as a high throughput chain, I think puts it in good stead as kind of like a bet against the EVM ecosystem because we have a lot of bets in the EVM ecosystem. It's nice to have a bit of diversification. That's where Sol really comes in and balances my portfolio nicely. So I like it for that reason. Blur is one I'm watching this week. Very interesting. This is an NFT marketplace. As I mentioned before, NFT volumes are up pretty much across the board. And we can also see that some of the major large cap NFTs, although basically bleeding for the last year, have also had a slight uptick. You can see in the bottom right corner here. So does that mean I'm buying Blur? Does that mean I'm bullish? Well, we can see it broke above its 200 MA on the alley. We could see it's making a bull flag as we speak, starting to break down below. So, you know, just keep your eye on this, whether it comes back in. Overall price action, pretty positive versus the rest of the market. So you could assert Blur is really bullish. Am I longing? The answer is no, I'm actually shorting. Wait, you might be like, what the hell? You're shorting? This is a bullish chart? Mars, are you an idiot? What are you doing? Well, I'll tell you why. I'm not shorting yet, but I've got a feeling that an announcement's coming. Now, I could be wrong. Maybe there's not. But the way the price action is moving, like with that thrust to the upside, with a significant increase in volume, typically that's something we see when like insiders start positioning themselves for some sort of announcement or some sort of trade. So for me, if this goes high enough, considering there's a crap ton of unlocks on Blur and it's generally just not like the strongest narrative, if this thrust higher, I would be very interested in shorting. I don't know where exactly, maybe it's 24 cents, maybe it's 25 cents. But the short, I think, becomes a decent play. Like there's kind of this meta in the market at the moment, which is just like shorting alts, which have significant unlocks and just like betting on the shorts every time they pump. And to be honest, that strategy has like worked out so well across the board, pretty much with every single altcoin. Blur is synonymous with that trade, given the fact that it has a lot of dilution coming onto the market and is also in a significant downtrend. As long as something is below its 200 MA on the daily and for Blur, you've got to use the lower timeframes because it hasn't been listed for that long and it hasn't had 200 days of price action. But yeah, considering it's still below this level on most of the timeframes, then it's still in a bearish trend. And for that reason, I'll look to short more than I long. So that's kind of what I'm doing there. Interesting little short, if there's some sort of announcement. I think that's invalidated if it's nothing and it's just a natural move. But if this is like a buy the rumor, sell the news event, then definitely I'll be selling the news. Next trend is another speculative one. So I'm pairing two speculative trends together. But why not? You know, we're in the business of speculating today, apparently. HashKey, which is Hong Kong's biggest crypto and first crypto retail exchange, officially launched Bitcoin and Ethereum deposits, which is pretty cool. But I am keeping a close eye on some of the like Chinese narrative tokens, Conflux and ACH in case there's a listing pump. Now, I don't know necessarily whether they're going to like favor Hong Kong tokens. Like I know CFX is like very highly traded in the Asia markets and it's kind of become synonymous with being like the Chinese coin. I don't know if that's going to put it in better stead to get a listing first before other coins. But I think people will speculate on that being the case just because it's like a Chinese coin. So definitely keeping my eye on CFX chart looks OK. ACH as well for a bit of diversification on that. Let's see if it gets a listing. But if you start to see murmurs of it, I think they can perform quite well. So I'm kind of just, yeah, it's a bit of a speculative trade, a bit of like a half -baked idea. But I thought I would mention it today just that I'm keeping my eye on some of these Chinese coins now that the Hong Kong exchanges have launched. You still got CFX below on the four -hourly. It's 200MA. And also on the hourly chart on the daily. It's also looking quite bearish. So this would mostly just be like a thrust play, like a swing trade up to like the $0 .15 zone, if we're lucky. ACH also similar. So wait for a reversal here before longing, of course, and just keep monitoring Twitter and seeing what's happening there. OK, we're getting into some juicy alts now. I have a couple plays which I haven't really talked about much before, but are like in my active portfolio. So I made some moves on these towards the end of last week. I actually bought some and yet made some active moves there. Before we get into that, I want to answer a question that a lot of you guys are asking in the comments because you guys know KyberSwap is an official partner of the show.
A highlight from He's Fired!! (We Had No Choice)
"So, Ryan said that if we were one second late for the morning call, then you're kicked out of the research group and you basically can't ever come back. There's no redemption. Wait, am I allowed to swear? Yeah, I'm allowed to swear. This place is full of shit, bro. You ask and if you ask, there's no way back into the call. There's just no way back. It's finished. So if you get kicked out on the morning call, you're not coming back. So I don't care who you are. I don't care whether you're the host or not a host, we're now making this call live at quarter past. We expect everybody on at quarter past. If you're not on by 20 past, you're out and if you're out, you ain't coming back in. We need to show up on time. We need to show up prepared and the one thing I'm not going to tolerate is people arriving at the morning call as passengers. People arriving at the morning call with no alpha and no value add, just thinking that they'll sit there and comment. I don't accept that shit. If you're not here at quarter past nine, you have five minutes to get on and get the legs. If not, you're out and if you're out, you ain't coming back. We are all there at a certain time every single day and we expect that everyone arrive on time and prepared. So, I mean, I made a rule now because people kept coming late, certain people, I'm not going to mention names. So the morning call is the whole team jumping on in the morning and preparing what's the top news, what's the top coins and I think a lot of people work here just to be on that morning call and this is because of me. I couldn't find the link, I was seven minutes late and now I am in shit. That's it. If you're not there five minutes after the call starts, you're out and once you're out, there's no way back into the call. Don't tell him, but I was 14 minutes late today. I don't think he noticed, so we'll see. Thank you if you are. Thank you if you're Kyle, Sheldon, Rand, Miles, I don't give a shit if you are. Anyway, let's carry on. In the military, there are people getting on. You see a few NBA players, you see a few pretty big gamers. It's too hard to use. I mean, if I lost like $20 worth of ease trying to do it, believe me, people have lost a lot more. Yeah, there's problems. We have major technical issues, as usual. I don't know what to do. I'm serious. Do I just go live like this? I'm luminescent. What else am I supposed to do? This is fun. It's important. We've got to do it. I don't know what to do. This thing is like we already meant to have started two minutes ago. And now Alistair's frothing here with excitement that there's problems. Look at him, salivating like a bloody Kardashian cameraman. Hi, Rand. We're having trouble with the green screen, getting it set. We're doing that thing where it's either the host or the green screen. Can I be adjusted your colour, your green for the preview? Yes. Preview. Wait, there we're back. We clicked preview. It worked. Now, on the black magic card, press the find button. On this thing? Yeah. That one? Yes, press that button. Okay, I'm there. It worked. Well done. You're a genius. This is why you own this company. He's not impressed. He's having his breakfast and matcha and we're late. What can we do? Guys, let's just quickly close off over here. Remember, we do have the morning call as well, which is right now. That is on the Banta Bubbles chart, the newsroom. You can go there. Sign in right now. The call has just begun. It's capped to, I think it's 500. So make sure that you jump in. I see someone says that Karl's going to be late. Yes, I'm going to be late. I'm still on the show. I'm paranoid if I'm late. I'm out. That's where you can hear Rand shouting at people. So if you find that a good time, then make sure you join. There is also a lot of alpha in the group. I've got a problem with it. The problem is that you're not accountable in any element. The language is done. I don't get my translations. The influencer campaign is two weeks old. I can't get involved in it. I just need results. Just need results. I can't get involved in the process. Can't get involved in managing the resources. That's what you need to be doing. So I've given you four things. Now you need to focus on those four things. One, the tech must work. No bullshit, no downtime. Make sure the tech works. You've had millions to know on this tech. No bullshit, no downtime. The ability to patch guests in seamlessly during the show is important. Can't carry on in the middle of the show, interrupting the show, not being able to share screens, audio is not coming through. That needs to be fixed like now. Your responsibilities are very simple. The tech in this office must always work. Must be seamless. I called me in, gave me more work and less time and layered through the deliverables and just basically said that none of the tech should ever give a problem ever again. And it's quite hard to agree to something like that because that's not how tech works. I don't need to know the process. I don't need to know the issues. Everyone else here gets their job done. They manage the resources to get the job done. I'm expecting the same from you. Okay? If I risk doing it and I mess it up, it's a big thing. So I need to get someone who's got the knowledge and has the experience to do it. It's a nice statement, but it's not possible. In some situations it's not. All I do is kid -shadow them and how hard I push on both sides. Is that just the reality of life? It's the reality of life. I don't hear it from anybody else. I don't hear it from you. I don't take it personally. I find as a teacher it's fascinating to learn, but if you're looking for compliments and you feel uplifted in your life, go somewhere else. 100%. And when we're doing this, is our life a reality show? Yes. Seriously, I'm going to be on a weekly reality show. Give them cocktails. You're going to do good stuff. You're going to get compliments, bro. No. Once a year. Give them cocktails. Life will get bad on you. James has had a very tough day. Nothing that a good cappuccino and what we call in South Africa, I've been here for a long time. I've been driving shows. I've been doing pretty much whatever. My job has evolved into pretty much everything here. I'm bored of driving shows. I've finally been off shows. I'm doing projects now. Projects for Cryptobancer. So influencer marketing, translating the languages, moving our broadcasting system over, then not only that, I've been keeping up with all of my stuff, following up on everything every day, but I've also been getting knocked out every day. Also getting a little bit of shit every day. But I also know from being here a long time, sitting here and arguing and making excuses doesn't help either of us. Long -term portfolio. Long -term portfolio. Yeah, it's more higher time frame for your stuff. Yeah, fair, fair. So long -term stuff, bro. So I'm going to help them build the ultimate portfolio. You know how I do that soldier sort of mechanism of understanding the different levels that your altcoins should be inserted into your long -term portfolio. So it's higher time frame portfolio plus strategies and you're preparing them mentally for the bull market and how they're going to act on it and what they're going to do when it comes, et cetera. Okay. Thank you. How long are you going to be? Not more than an hour. No more than an hour. It never stops, no? Working on the run is like, it is really, really, really hard. Some people can... If you don't do something right, you don't stay in your lane, you're going to get hit on hard. A lot of people can't take that. A lot of people will leave. I've seen many people come in and out of these doors that can't hold the pressure. He is a top businessman. He is a man that's savage in his industry and you've got to give him respect. There's a very small percentage of the planet that's got a nice vibe he has. JAMES' TROUBLE James, are you in trouble again? When am I not in trouble? James is always in trouble. Always. James is trouble. We had the disco moment, remember? Last week when Ranz Lightz went on and off five times. It happened again this morning for Kyle's show. But yeah. He didn't shit again. James is going to get fired. Look, I know it's tough here. This is a high performance environment. But if we're going to achieve our objectives, we can only have a high performance environment. But it's my responsibility to make sure that we are executing according to our vision. And our vision is to build a billion dollar business in less than three years. And to me, as I say, culture is the most important thing in a business. It's what separates good businesses from bad businesses. And I won't let the culture of this place decline. It's just not something that I'll do. I won't compromise on culture ever. It took me 17 years to build a $150 million business. I've done it before. This time it's actually about changing people's lives. And if you look at every single person that I work with here, they'll tell you their lives have changed. I don't think anybody's going to complain in three years when they're sitting on their yachts sipping on margaritas. They won't complain anymore. It's a single swim. That's all. So, Rand always striving for success. I think that's very, very good. That's the perfect leader that we need. Yeah, he's an incredible human, incredible business person. And his work ethic is unparalleled. So, I look up to that. I see him as a mentor. Because, I mean, I thought I worked hard. He has four kids and he still works harder than me, which is just mind -blowing. It's insane. So, yeah. What are you talking about? Yeah, so, obviously, Do's been under me and, like, within the business. He's been running the live training sessions. He was very, very afraid of being behind camera in the beginning. But I just had this feeling that he had to get his ass behind cameras. And I think he's more than just doing my charts on Discord. I think he should have a show. I think he will annihilate in the pool. Like, he's really good. But I feel a lot of our hosts are going to struggle in the pool. I think they do well in this market. I don't think they're going to do well. And I think we've got a channel that we're wasting. The fact that we don't have daily shows there. I think we're going to rebrand the channel, the other channel. I think I'm actually leaning towards Banter Plus. Because I think Banter Plus just says everything it needs to say. It's like, it's the better channel, it's plus, it's additional. Plus, it's the better channel. Yeah. If it says Banter Plus, if you're making a step -style channel, people aren't going to watch it. People don't watch the second league. People don't watch Formula 2. People don't watch. People want to watch the best. I promise you, bro. I'm going to move my show. I'm going to move my show to another channel. Soon. Rebrand and move. It's too much of a move. I'll do it when there's movement in the market and there's a full cycle. I'm going to jump. So you want two main channels? Sure. Why? What do I gain if I don't do it? I've got a channel. I've got two amazing channels instead of one. We'll rebrand a channel. Then you can try another show there. But you know, if you get onto the show, you sign a contract, because we don't want to build stars here that don't compete with us. Wait, you know. You know where my loyalty is. I know where your loyalty is. You know what they say. When you marry your wife, you're marrying your best friend. When you're getting divorced, you're getting divorced from the wicked witch of Eastbeck, bro. You can't even talk to her when you're getting divorced. That's what you've got to plan for. You know what I mean? We do have one. We do have one quick problem, and I need the banter fans' help with it, okay? Especially this sniper army. Run is considering his maybe, because we have a second channel coming up. Maybe Dylan should have his own show. So what I want you to do, I want you to go to Run's show today, and I want you to spam the shit out of the comments and say, Dylan must get a show. Dylan must get a show. Dylan must get a show. I love these altcoins. I just love these labels. I love these foods. I mean, I'm doing this stuff every day, and I'm so happy to share it with you every day. We're going to basically park there to pay, so you're going to have two powerhouses driving to one run. Yeah, that's the difference here, because a lot of people aren't there. What you do in the background is your deal. You guys are going so much at the end of it. You're not going to come... I just want to make sure that he has a show and that you... For as long as your show is growing and you have a lot of community... You think I'm good enough to have a show. I don't want to come here and sell one. more So, exactly, this is my point. I was always a reluctant presenter. So Ryan pulled me into the office. We were talking about the show and everything and the possibility of me getting one. It's not something I was always pushing and chasing myself, so it was quite strange to me when he told me I'm potentially not good enough. So, I mean, there is a difference between show business, obviously, and the content work that I do. I know my content is 10 out of 10. I'm not the most exciting or charismatic presenter, but I think I can get better. And I think I can prove him wrong. Yeah, so people want to know if I'm good enough or not. You just need to come look at my charts, really. I mean, look at this tweet. When everyone is getting all depressed, I said to them, Pump town coming for render even though there's a death cost, okay? Look at this. Bang. Perfect. Absolute perfection. Into the trend. TP time. We're out of this trade. Look at this one. Oil. Everyone was so bullish on oil. We got the short lie. We traded this oil completely live on the channel. Look at Rune. Called a short on the live into a banging resistance zone. I mean, there it is right there. Look at this camp. Looking so sad. Rune's coming down right to this zone here. At least 1 .4. Maybe even down there. So, it's all happening in here all the time. Just come look at my charts. They're here in the Discord as well. Look at this. Look at this DYDX. We said it's breaking through resistance. It was a big resistance zone. Looking for support to develop. Look at that. Bang. Now we're going to short this thing. So, you decide. Is my work good enough? I don't know. We'll find out. I like Dylan. Dylan I've known for a long time. In fact, Dylan's wife and my wife are actually very good friends. That's how we met. And when we moved into Banta, I brought him along for the ride. Because I just knew we'd find a spot for him. Now, the ball is in his court. We're giving him the screen. We're giving him the platform. And now he has to perform. And it's kind of cute to see how stressed he gets. Because Dylan's skin -haired beard. And now he's shitting himself in front of the camera. So, it's actually quite fun to watch it happen. We'll obviously support him. I want him to succeed. When you get to 50 shots, that's a lot better if you didn't have to have a phone. You want to embarrass him? Let me show you how embarrassing my first shoot was, bro. This is the first time I ever did fucking live. Live fucking TV, bro. I do really love you. Good luck. Good luck to 50 years. Welcome to Crypto Trader at the World's Best. How bad is this? How bad is this? This is basically true. I am Crypto Man Ryan. And I'll be your host. How bad is this? I'll be your host. You're a mess. I want you. I want you. I want you. I don't want you. I'm so bad. Just for everyone, I know how tough it is making content at this time when shit's happening. And when it's getting more and more and more boring. I'm starting to get my momentum back, which is why I think I'm going to cancel my career trip because I just can't afford a disruption in momentum. I think we need to use this time to build because you're like two green candles on Bitcoin and you know what happens, everyone's going to rush back. When that happens, a lot of changes are going to happen in this business. So the first bit of content we're going to do is Dylan's going to have a show. We're going to finalize all the agreements here, but Dylan will have his show.
A highlight from NEW COVID VARIANT HERE NOW!! (What will crypto do?!)
"I think we all know that this video is going to be shadow banned and probably going to be removed by YouTube. But I'm going to speak my mind here and I'm going to show you what's actually going on because there is talk of a new COVID variant and I want to show you what's going on so that you're up to date and you know exactly what's happening. I know you think I may be blowing things out of proportion, but just just have a look here and tell me what what you make of this COVID is making a comeback this summer. So many of us would like to leave it in the past, but cases are once again on the rise. So when will new booster shots roll out? And Thompson asked the CDC director. So COVID is on the rise, but when will the new booster shot be out? Does that remind you of anything? Does that maybe remind you of of the old COVID, the old COVID lockdowns? What's going on here? What are the what are the the the motives here? Why is this coming back and why is this coming back right now? Is there actually a new variant? What is it all about? We're going to speak about that. We're also going to speak about Bitcoin because look, Bitcoin's under the 26 ,000 level. It's not really an emergency just yet, but the real like emergency I would say is if you look at total three, which is the total alt market cap, excluding Bitcoin and Ethereum, and that is now back at levels of just after the FTX collapse. So this is where the FTX collapse was. And if you look at where total three is, this is where total three is. It's the same levels as it was just after the FTX collapse. Now, the question is, what is the future of of this altcoin market? What's it what's it going to do? What's it going to do in the near future? And speaking of COVID, if you look at the Bitcoin RSI, which is the sentiment indicator on Bitcoin, you can see that the RSI are so oversold that the last time that the RSI were oversold is here at this previous COVID low, which where Bitcoin was 3 ,875. So I mean, is this a coincidence that the two COVID lows are or the two RSI lows was at the previous COVID pandemic, beginning of the previous COVID pandemic? And this one again is at the beginning of the new COVID pandemic. We're going to talk about that. Also, a big day today on the NASDAQ, because today we have Nvidia reporting results. You can see Nvidia has had a huge tear this year. I mean, a lot of people actually talk about this rally being the AI rally and the stock that has led the AI rallies in video and they're reporting earnings today. If the earnings if Nvidia's earnings beat forecast, then NASDAQ rallies and probably continues to rally towards an all time high. disappoints If Nvidia today, then we probably see a 5 % correction in the NASDAQ. And then you're going to get the bears coming out and saying that this is we're entering a bear market. So big day today on the NASDAQ. Also, we're going to cross over to BRICS to see what's happening in BRICS. I know that Vladimir Putin spoke. He spoke about the dollarization. The Brazilian prime minister spoke about the dollarization. So we'll touch on that. And then I'm going to show you some tokens that I'm actually looking to buy. Now, I want to just say I'm not buying yet. I'm getting ready to buy. I'll show you what the tokens are and why I'm getting ready to buy. And I know you're probably looking at this and going, are you crazy talking about buying tokens when the market's like this? But that's what I'm going to show you. I'm going to show you my rationale and my thinking. So lots to do today. Let's get in. How scary to think that the IRS is actually back at pre -COVID levels, that the sentiment is actually back at pre -COVID levels in the last time that this happened, Bitcoin was at three thousand eight hundred and forty dollars. And I think we then had a rally of seventeen hundred percent. Yeah, sixteen hundred seventeen hundred percent rally after the IRS eyes were this low. So I wonder if the pattern is actually going to repeat itself. Also, I wonder if we're going to get lockdowns again. I wonder what the motives are. In fact, I don't wonder. I'm going to show you what I think the motives are for this this new whisper of COVID lockdowns about a year and a bit before the elections. I mean, look, it's definitely coincidental. There can't be there can't be anything else to it. It has to be coincidental. So we're going to talk about that. We're going to talk about the Binance FUD, because I think that's that's something we talk about. Yeah, lots to talk about, lots to talk about. So listen, if you are new to the channel, obviously subscribe, subscribe, subscribe to our channel, the fastest growing major channel in crypto. If you have been here for a long time, you know the show is going to get shadowbanned. I know the show is going to get shadowbanned. We spent the whole morning deciding whether we wanted to actually talk about that. And we decided that we would rather bring you the truth and not get censored. And if we lose views or if the channel takes a bit of a knock, so what? And the only way I can you can help me get out of this is smashing the like, putting positive comments and helping us get completely, completely, completely unshadowbanned. All right. So let's get into the meat and potatoes of the show. So, yeah, let's quickly look at this. So we've got Sheldon was showing me the Bitcoin chart today, showing me something quite scary. I don't know if I if I actually believe him, but he says, look, if you look at where this rally in twenty seventeen, the rally that took us out of this started, you can say the rally in twenty in twenty eighteen actually started in, say, twenty fourth of December. If you look at where this year's rally started, pretty much more or less the same time, twenty third, twenty fourth of December. Then he says, OK, when did we top? When did we top on this? They can let you can say, look, we topped somewhere around twenty fourth of June or near July. And if you look at this, when did we actually top somewhere around June or July? And he's saying, look, we are following this trend. We are following the cycle. If we do follow the cycle, we could have quite a long way to go before we get to the same levels here. And I do think that we are following the cycle. I want to actually show you. So if we look at the pre -harving cycles, I don't think there's anything different in in the cycles. You can see that we have a a downtrend, we have an uptrend, we have a reaccumulation zone. And then as we get to the halving from the halving, we really start climbing. So I don't know if this year is going to be that different. It looks like the cycle, as much as I hate to say it, it does look like the cycle is is playing out very similar, very similar to two previous cycles. We're also getting in the cycle while this is all happening, we are getting the short term holders capitulating. So if you look at the short term holder, the short term holders, they completely, completely, completely capitulated while the smart money is actually starting to accumulate at this level, at this level of the cycle. And what you see now is you're seeing a whole lot of FUD on Altcoin. So no, Benjamin Khan saying, look, there is a chance that, you know, Solana goes back to eight dollars. I've seen the bear saying that that we could go back to to to a Bitcoin price of nine dollars, nine thousand dollars and twelve thousand dollars. Remember that in this part of the cycle, in the bear part of the cycle, the bears get to be right and they get to tell you that they're right just for like a short period of time because bears will keep calling the market down. They'll keep telling you that Bitcoin is going down to twelve thousand and whatever else. And they'll be right for like short periods of time. But long, long periods of time, they won't be right because the market will just continue to go up and continue to go up. So let them enjoy their moment in the sand. I have been actually looking at the rainbow chart now. You know, I mean, initially I was obviously very, very, very skeptical of the rainbow chart. How the rainbow chart works is it tells you whether Bitcoin is overbought over here. Yeah, it's like maximum bubble territory, serious set of FOMO intensifies. Is this a bubble huddle? Still cheap, accumulated by and basically a fire cell. And as much as, you know, initially I was quite skeptical about the rainbow chart. If you look at it over a long period of time, it actually is quite right. And you can see that right now we're entering the we're in the buy zone and we're entering the basically a fire cell. So there's not actually that much panic on Bitcoin at the moment. Sentiment is bad, but it's not like it's not extreme fear. People are scared, but people aren't very, very scared. And that's why I'm not really ready to start buying old coins yet, because I think that there'll be better opportunities. I'm not saying don't start dollar cost averaging, but don't spend all your money now. And the reason why you probably shouldn't spend all your money now is because we're not at the point where people are panicking. People are getting demotivated. People are getting depressed. But remember that that's what this part of the cycle is designed to do. This part of the cycle is designed to depress you. That's why it's called the depression phase. Now, if we are here and we do have this accumulation left to go, I really hope that the accumulation isn't as long as the previous accumulation, because you can see that it took about a year and a half from that point to get to the same level in the last cycle. I don't think we're there, but I mean, you do need to prepare yourself for a marathon and you do need to prepare yourself to take maybe a little bit more losses if we follow the previous cycle. Be that as it may, as I said, I think I'm in the camp of this rainbow chart, which basically says, look, when prices start coming down to the bottom here, when they start reaching this oversold territory, just keep accumulating slowly. But the main thing is stay in the game, because I showed you that I showed you this here. I'll show it to you again. The main thing is that you've got to be here when these one, two, three, four, five days happen and one, two, three, four, five, six days happen and one, two, three, four, five, six days happen. The whole increase in the price of Bitcoin, 100 percent increase was here over 24 days, eight, eight and eight or seven, seven and seven. So I think you've got to be here. You've got to be here when this happens. So don't get demotivated now. Don't give up now. Now is probably the best time to to actually be accumulating. And I'll show you a bit later what it is that I'm actually accumulating and why I'm actually accumulating it, because a lot of people were talking to me about my tweet yesterday. Let's look at the bubbles. Oh, I'm loving the bubbles, Josh, I must say, and actually, to be honest, it's actually not only me loving the bubbles. I see Kasper is down seven point two eight today, maybe getting into my buy zone. Not yet. Not yet. Robert also down six point five three, also not in my buy zone yet. I mean, as I said, I am loving the bubbles. For those of you who don't know, there is a morning banter research call. Just click on newsroom over here. You'll see that we have a call in 17 hours added to your calendar and then you can join our morning research call. Also, if you want to search for a token, like, for example, if you don't know where Solana is, just search and you'll see it actually starts flashing. So we've built that functionality. And I think a lot of people are starting to notice bubbles today and now you can see earlier yesterday who's back streaming, by the way. And I actually I love his videos. So he he was also one of the people that really helped me when I when I started banter. He was one of the guys that like really, really helped me with the channel. So good to see him streaming again. And yesterday on his stream, he actually spoke about banter bubbles. Let's get to a really good tool. This tool was created by Crypto Banter. It's called the Banter Bubbles. And I want to be clear here. If you've been on crypto Twitter or if you follow this industry closely, none of these names will be a shock to you because these have all been talked about a lot on crypto Twitter. I'm not the first person talking about any of these. But one thing I think is really easy is you go to the banter bubbles here and you go ahead and you set it over to the year. And this gives you the highest performing tokens over the last year. And you can also say top one hundred, top two hundred. So good to see that other streamers are actually starting to to notice banter bubbles.
A highlight from YSAs and Mental Health
"Hey everyone, this is Kurt Frankam, the host of the Leading Saints Podcast, and I'm excited to announce that we will be helping premiere a new podcast that is actually produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter -day Saints. This podcast is called At the Table, creating space for single members of the Church. I actually had the pleasure of partnering with the Church to help produce this podcast, and so I wanted to make sure the Leading Saints audience is aware of it. This is episode 2 of 3 that we will be publishing on the Leading Saints podcast feed to give you a little flavor, and then you can hear the other episodes by subscribing to the At the Table podcast on whatever platform you are listening to, Leading Saints. This will most likely be a semi -annual series. To help the Church improve the podcast content, there is a link in the show notes to a feedback survey for each episode. After listening to each episode, we encourage you to take the time to fill out that short survey. Let's jump into this week's episode about young single adults and mental health. Welcome to the At the Table podcast, a production of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter -day Saints. On this podcast, we aim to explore how Church leaders can more effectively understand and utilize the voices of young single adults in their words and stakes. You'll hear from experienced Church leaders and young single adults about best practices, inspiring stories, and encouraging methods to help us all follow Jesus Christ together. My name is Kami Castrijon. I'm originally from Columbia. I was born and raised there, and I moved to the United States when I was 16. I moved to the big city of New York, and that's where I joined the Church. And then soon after, I served my mission in Riverside, California. Then after my mission, I moved to Utah, and I've been here ever since. I love dancing, especially salsa, hiking, baking, and I am thrilled to be part of this amazing podcast At the Table. I'm Jared Pearson. I have the pleasure to be a co -host on the At the Table podcast. I'm currently in Provo, Utah, but I was born and raised in Livermore, California, right outside San Francisco, California. I ended up serving my mission in New Hampshire, the New Hampshire -Manchester mission. And some of my favorite things are playing pickleball, tennis, or staying inside playing some board games, or reading books as well. And I'm just really excited to be part of this. Thank you for being here today, Sheldon and Xochitl. We're so happy to have you here and to hear from your experiences, hear your insights, and we want our listeners to get to know you too. So why don't you go ahead and introduce yourselves and tell us a little bit about you and your story. So I'm here to speak about my mental health journey. I'm a little nervous because it's usually easier for me to write out my experience. I think this will probably be my first time outside of therapy that I'm going to be sharing my journey, my whole journey with someone else. So I hope that's able to help other people as well. I'm Sheldon. My whole life professionally, I think, has revolved around people, whether that's as a professional therapist or building products or programs. It's always trying to strengthen and help people, especially in situations where they may have emotional or mental health needs and the things we can do to support them and to learn from them. So I'm a licensed therapist. I received my doctorate degree at Arizona State in healthcare solutions. It's just led me into a space where I love trying to figure out the things that are heavy for us as human beings, whether it's through private practice therapy or how to strengthen a community, just how to get stronger together. So both of you have had kind of different perspectives on mental health and YSAs and people in general and like what kind of struggles people go through. And we're trying to like demystify what happens behind the scenes. And so you being a YSA, so you've experienced things yourselves and I'm sure Sheldon, you've seen a lot of things in your profession, other experiences as well. And you've both kind of seen the sides of mental health and like what it can do for you. And I just would like to get a quick rundown on both of your experiences and what you've seen in your lives with mental health and how that's affected you. I've battled like depression and OCD for a long time since I was 14. Thing was my family at the time did not believe that depression and mental health stuff existed. They always denied it. They're like, nope. So when I recognized I was like depressed, I couldn't feel anything inside. My mom basically told me to buck it up and just stop feeling that way. And so it was really hard for me from middle school to high school, just like having to battle my own demons inside my head, thinking that it's not real, that it's not true. It really hit my self -esteem a lot. And when I went to college, I was able to like put on the back burner for a bit, but once I got closer to my graduation date, the barrier I had built just broke and everything spilled out. I remember just for like weeks, I was like, things aren't feeling positive. I'm not feeling motivated. I'm not sure what's wrong. Everything's going right in life. And then I remember one day as I'm leaving campus, I have to take this ramp up to go over a bridge, over the road to get to my car. And I remember like imagining like someone could just fall off that wall and hit the road below. And as I was going over the bridge, I broke down because at that moment I realized it was me. I wanted to throw myself off that wall. And so I just, I cried right there watching the cars go by under me.
Josh Hammer: The Israeli Government Despises George Soros
"Oh I can't go there. Yeah no totally and like I get it look I mean no wants one to be called a racist sexist bigot homophobe anti -semite whatever I mean I mean no one wants to be called that like it's necessarily an unpleasant thing but you know the left is they have ways it both on this one Lisa when it comes to kind of you know large Jewish donors in particular you know Sheldon Adelson passed away a couple years ago before he passed away he was a major donor to conservative Republican Party causes oftentimes pro -israel -zionist causes Paul Singer is a current Jewish billionaire who also donates to many similar causes and you know the left criticizes these guys all the time right for having kind of size influence but you know somehow then when a conservative criticizes Soros then you're anti -semitic I mean it just doesn't make sense I mean and that's holding aside many people don't even know that George Soros is Jewish I mean you know he frankly just to be very you know kind of blunt here doesn't have a very stereotypically sounding Jewish name many people criticize because he's a pretty evil man and then they're told that he's Jewish and they're like oh I actually didn't even know that so I mean this whole thing frankly just stinks to high heaven and I think the the idea here for Jews against Soros is again just a cobble together a lot of Jewish American patriots who oppose Soros's agenda and you know what's interesting Lisa it's actually not just Jewish Americans the Israeli government actually the Netanyahu government in Israel despises George Soros because he funds lots of causes that the Israeli government hates as well so actually the Netanyahu government's minister who handles anti -semitism is a man by the name of Amichai Sheekley and you know he defended Elon Musk recently after Elon Musk criticized Soros. Mihai Shinkley liked numerous of my tweets and my tweet thread the other
What the Heck Was Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse's Speech About?
"Total lunatic Sheldon White House The yard The Democrat communist senator from Rhode Island is doing it again He just finished a it's supposed to be a nomination process for judge Brown Jackson where there's an interaction The senators ask questions the judge provides answers and you determine our court worthiness That's how the process is supposed to work Not for White House White House and Democrat he went on a what 13 minute or so rant again with the crazed lunatic fringe conspiracy theories that Joey knew Bobby who gave money to Martha and Martha took money from a library return fund 7 years ago for a book that was taken out by a conservative group that allegedly donated to a libertarian candidate who sponsored a bill written by a conservative whose uncle's brother lived next door to Ronald Reagan's cousin's friend at one point I got you and everybody's looking around like what is this guy doing He is a crazy person When I used to give speeches running for office sometimes you get people and they'll do like a Q&A session right So they'll put a microphone in the middle and people come up And I remember one time this guy said something great because sometimes people come up and they don't really have a coach is okay They don't have a question I just want to say something which is fine I'm happy to hear you out I mean it But organizers don't like that So this guy said at the beginning folks if after 5 minutes there is no question mark at the end of what you were saying We are going to have to cut you off and I remember thinking my head that's pretty brilliant There you go That should be the rule at these
Matt Palumbo: The Left Are Primary Beneficiaries of Corporate Money
"You know when it comes to Soros I find it ironic that when you write a book like you did backed up thoroughly resource with facts and footnotes That the left in order to get you to stop talking about one of their big donors will claim ridiculous absurdities like oh it's anti semitism which is hilariously stupid on its face Especially when it comes to me and you people who have actively supported I mean it's just a joke But it's really strange If you happen to be a conservative who happens to be black you're also a racist right away So you can't win the argument You are a minority group and you're a conservative You're definitely a racist Yet if you're a conservative regardless of what you've done historically to back minorities speaking about any liberal you are definitely an anti semite It's a lose lose isn't it Pretty much It is hilarious that I mean for the past I know 20 years preceding the past 5 the last was very vocal about getting money out of politics And I think in the most recent elections I go they realize that the primary beneficiaries of it I mean I remember when put together a chart and it was just showing like the hundred most influential organizations in America which was like the NYPD we were various colleges There are big corporations And I think all but two older nations went to Democrats I think the NYPD and some other law enforcement agency were the only marginally right wing major institutions in the country So you know they are the beneficiaries of billionaire money We really only like a Sheldon adelson On our side who was also Jewish yet no one really called an anti semitic to criticize him So no I mean these people ultimately don't really believe anything when they're throwing these claims out
Carrie Severino: Liberals Should Be Called out for Dark Money Tactics
"You know you brought up the dark money comment I find that to be hilarious because they're always attacking the right for dark money but Carrie did you ever notice it's only dark money which is obviously meant to be a pejorative when it's on the right But when it's leftist money behind the scenes trying to push prior out for a more radical judge then all of a sudden it's free speech money You notice you notice the delicate messaging act they do on that I mean you guys have been victims of this yourself with this dark money nonsense Oh absolutely In one of the senators whose most loves to talk about it he has these kind of tinfoil hat conspiracy theory charts he puts up every once in a while Sheldon whitehouse He himself accepts a lot of money from groups that if they weren't if they were conservative would be delighted dark money We know they can't be dark money because they're liberal but there's exactly the same track structure Exactly the same donor kind of structure So it's absolutely a pejorative term They only apply to groups on

It was more than just going from hockey to figure skating for me. I lost the love of my love of the game. I lost my love of of competing in one of the biggest shames gilts than i had in my life was Not giving myself best opportunity. I could perform in my. Nhl career never lifted a weight. I mean i just you know everything that went on in my life. I it so this gave me a chance to prepare for and you know and go out at a one hundred percent and i just i never in my life ever leave their thought that i would have a chance to to do this to do. And that's what it was. It was fun because you know what people wanted to talk. Nhl hockey the shell sheldon experience. Because of what happened to me as a kid it just wasn't farm and that's what happens. Is that the love of life is stolen from you and you when you're when you've been hurt by any forms of child abuse disillusioned love of being a child and the farming and that was no different for me so you know that's what battle the blaze was was on. And you know. What am i love being on the ice again and that was a feeling that i haven't really thought since i was twelve so that was you know. Nbn win it. Who would have thought the old guy snuck in there. Take didn't even touch my dole's when i got the call the the strategy getting shaved it all off. You guys pulled it out. We pulled it off Listen you know that hope is a very important word end There's that old saying like always try to leave more hope when you leave a room when you walked into it and you obviously you definitely have provided hope to a lot of people listening. You know about the trauma from sexual abuse. And how you you need to have to rise above that and be a better person and keep going and that's really what you're doing providing hope to a lot of people listening but for you personally and i always pose off with this question to my guests on the on the podcast. What gives you hope you know. It's twenty twenty where the middle of nineteen pandemic Twenty twenty one's around the corner. What gives sheldon kennedy. Hope while i think perry you know what here's you. I talk in the both child sexual abuse in the impact of what we can do to be better. You know what i mean to me. I think you know this is this is this is gives me hope these types of conversations and i think you know there has been a major shift in. We've seen and you know this whole week. Free press there's art fairs all you know. There's a six six p. series on on you know connecting the dots on how does scream james operate in our communities rate and. I think it's huge. I think so. You know what i think is me hope. Perry is that not only. Can we talk. We're having a podcast on this but you know. I think that we're seeing people recover. And what gives me. Hope is when when you hear of another person comments through the dark and into the light the and i want an i lick. Let hearing how they did it what they continually do to stay there because these issues we've gotta show people the way out. This is not just vote telling her stories in the dark. This is about finding a way out it so we hear more and more and more and more people you know getting to a good place you know out of those dark places recovering from addiction or being able to get through those child abuse or the you know the impacts of residential school and i think when i see my little guy i see little two and a half year old them. You know. we're going to go through sports. We're gonna go through schools. We're gonna you know. And i see organizations having things in place to address these issues in all and it keeps getting better all the time that gives me. Hope i think you know. And you know. And i think he he he just keeps it simple for me. I think that's what i gotta do. Sometimes get ahead of myself. I think when i could keep bringing bring it back to the basis right to the to the basics you know worse were am. I out with balanced do i have here. Spiritually emotionally physically right and And and mentally aware my app. And i think you know if i can keep that simple harry. There's lots of hope to go forward in the future. Well i think that's a very powerful statement to to close our podcast off on sheldon and to like i said earlier on you. You are a great example of persevere. Don't ever give up. And you've provided a lot of hope for a lot of people across this land and basically throughout the world so thank you so much for what you do and what you've done for Raising a light on a very very serious issue about sexual abuse against children and we always say once you start exposing things to the light of day they're exposed and you can deal with things and Thank you so much for your.

"You know i found myself in a position where you know addition was taken over my life. You know alcohol drug abuse Risky lifestyle all of that stuff and dream of being a hockey player. Left me when. I met a grave. James and i think I didn't know why. I didn't know what was happening to me. Couldn't explain it to anybody because it happened so long ago. You know twenty twenty. While i was fourteen at the time so you know thirty years ago and over thirty years ago you know. We didn't talk about this stuff. So i remember the fear of telling anybody who's gonna believe me because i've been this trouble making kid that you know the drunk and that's the way i visit and so anyway. I remember when. I saw graham when i got traded from the detroit. Red wings to the calgary flames. And i saw graham outside. The locker amuse coaching calvary Diamond and i saw him the young kids. I just need myself. My life was out of control at the time. And i just knew that if i didn't do something a i needed to stop him from hurting other kids and i needed to save my life because i was very suicidal and And my wife was pregnant with her daughter. Ryan at time i would never be the father and the parent and husband that i wanted to be honest. I dealt with this stuff. So that's how i told my story. I didn't think anybody was gonna believe me. And i remember getting to the point where It was in one thousand nine hundred seven. I was canada's newsmaker of the year. And i remember looking at the newspaper. There was terry fox. Rick set recanting of prime ministers and so forth and then i was newsmaker of the year ninety seven. I thought to myself Done anything here. So i'm going to put on a pair of rollerblades rollerblade across the country. And i gotta say perry late probably the thing that kept me going across. This country was all the disclosures in the support. And the people the chemo. Keep going keep going. Thank you show them. And i can tell you that i visited there was communities. And i remember going into col- non-member golan like you. Don't we visited in a communities and first nations communities average communities across this country I remember being drummed in having ceremonies within ranks. I remember people telling us. This rink has not been filled in years and years and years and years at a time when i think we came together not just me personally but it was the first time that i didn't feel alone and i think it was an and that's what i was given when i was welcomed inductees communities but also I think what i gave them was voice Around issues that how they'd been hurt And men not just the women but also the man and i think You know being able to connect the dots around residential school. You know. I think the incidences were different. But one thing that's really stuck with me is. The impact is very consistent. And that's one thing that i will never ever forget that. And that's the most relatable place for conversation is that you know the time the place the person is different. But but how we were hurt can how were impacted. What what we were left with Deliver lives with because of what happened to us was very consistent. I think that was the most commonplace for conversation You know that's i went across the country and we had conversations like that perry night. You know what. I remember. When i i told my story it was not everything. Just didn't go away. I had a. I had a lot of wreckage that had to do with the damage of what happened to me. And i remember. I went to a treatment center. And and i managed to get sober but i was really struggling with spirituality. All the story to you know. And i ran into a friend of mine who worked at the medicine mountain Sandy lake and we went on a four athos out in the area And was a place. Where actually. Because i think when you're abused you lose your ability to trust because you're hurt by somebody that you trust right and that's a big deal. That's a lot bigger than people think. Because how are we supposed to trust in the spirits in crater for somebody that you know you're not trust belief that's about right and so for me. That was a huge part of my recovery. It's still is today because it gave me that. Trust brought in brought the spirits in for me to actually believe that. I'm not alone right now is really important to me. That's a very powerful powerful dialogue sheldon be about trust in healing and keeping going hearing the disclosures. Rollerblading cross canada. I time not feeling alone. And giving first nations people avoid because what you describe experiences that experience a lot of people who the residential schools it was physical abuse mental abuse sexual abuse starvation And now we lift you up for leading like that again. You're the you're the example of optime mc now you're in hockey and that's sports and there's also the abuse of power like you talked about the the trust between the coach and the players and and this goes to any other sports sporting event or activity. You know how. How can we look at breaking the pattern of abuse in. Sports are in any place where there's an imbalance of power involving children and sports itself is yes. There's abuse there but as good sports really part of the answer too. Yeah well. I think you're you're sitting right on. This is not just hockey issue societal issue. I think you're right. It's bound to power. And i think our best defense in what we how we tried to go about. This is to build coffins around of these issues and clarity and an ability to have the conversations to speak in when our guts are telling us Need to be able to follow that. Follow that path and to be able to ask questions in a not. You know but i think right now. We're not sure how asked these questions because we're not really sure if it is or if it isn't in my talk about confidantes irony it's about. We need to be very clear on what's right and what's wrong because a lot of times. Look at these issues all. I can't step in there. I can't step in here. Even though you know i know i know this kid is at risk and no we do need to step in. We need to know how to do that. And it is our job to their children. And i think you know sports if we look at a lot of the most impact i mean the the leading contributor to mental health issues in our country stem from adverse childhood experiences stem from kids being hurt for for suits for long periods of time traumatic experiences which we know offset those kids up to live a certain way all of anxiety into the rest of their lives. How do they manage that anxiety. How do they manage that. You know that easiness within cy. And i think one of.
"sheldon" Discussed on Parenting Roundabout
"Week of september. Sixth i'm terry moral and i'm here with nicole aeronautics pillow and catherine lecco. Hello today. we're taking a break from talking and complaining and obsessing and instead shouting out things other people are doing that. We think you might find as useful or enjoyable as we do. We call this around about roundup. I think a few weeks ago. I talked about a phone game called good. Sadako and i still been enjoying playing that. There's another game that i believe is from the same people. That's called flip flop. Solitaire and i am enjoying that very much as well. It's not a normal solitaire game. It has its own particular rules. The artwork on the cards is very Sort of hand-drawn. Looking in fun and It's it's some games. I sweep right throw in some games. I have a very hard time with. You can go back and try it again. you build up and down on the on the numbers of in everything up to aces at the top. It's sort of a combination of different solitaire games. I've played but it has its specific rules and it's real fun so if you're looking for another way to play solitaire on your phone checkout flip flops solitaire. I think you'll enjoy it and nicola you have for this week. I'm gonna shout at a tv show that has been. I've been watching on netflix. It's called the young sheldon and it's the precursor to the a precursor to the big bang theory Tv show now. I have not watched the big bang theory. But i will after this but this is about one of the characters as Busy for awhile. I know So so yes so. This is the one of the characters in the shows about when he was younger Clearly a unique Little guy and all his adventures. So there's there's a little bit of controversy around some of the issues in the television show and how they portray the character. But i think overall it's very well written and there's a lot of like you know the characters are are great all of them. So yeah it's called young sheldon. Add to my list of five thousand things any to be watching. Catherine what are you shouting this week. Well We recently moved our daughter into a off campus housing off campus townhouse. And so they had to set up. You know they needed to bring all their furniture and set up a kitchen and everything and we happen to find this spice rack. The brand is called. Oreo are i. Or kitchen And we happen to get it at costco and But the the cool thing so it's a spice rack with twenty different jars of spices and we picked it up off the shelf at costco because she was like. Oh i do need i. I need something like that. And i was like. Oh well shirley. It doesn't come with the spices. You know it's just it's just the containers yell not only does it. Come with the spices. Twenty different spices. it comes with refills. For why how ears. Oh my goodness yeah. That's a lot of right so you can you out like register it or whatever and then you can request refills. they'll ship. Wow isn't that why. Oh that's nice that you don't get them all in one big bundle years. Five years worth of spices. Good no no. No no no. You're not going to be able to find these in six months now. Going to be going bad in the back of your closet you just order when you run out of one you run and on. I found it on this or kitchen website and it was sixty five dollars on there. I know we paid much less than that at cotabato. So it's still five years with the spice exactly. Yeah yeah and you get the rack and get all jars and get the the first you know. The jars are full. So i it might take five years to get through this jar me so that was super handy for somebody who's starting out in a brand new kitchen with nothing so that was awesome. It was a good costco find. Yeah and that. Is it for another week of parenting roundabout if you missed any of our earlier episodes this week. Look them up. On speaker.
"sheldon" Discussed on Ruby on Rails Podcast
"There's anything that like. I am worried about in the community. I think that trying to think not just about oh is ruby on rails fast enough but really like is it meeting the kinds of business needs and the ways of working that people have what opened my eyes to ruby on rails was reading agile web development with rails which was really just about like. How do you iterative lead. Deliver business value. And i think that's the sort of thing just is rubio's actually serving the businesses that exist today and i do think it is. I have a friend who's just way more famous than me on the internet. They joined the stealth mode startup and their team was like building application in rust because it was fast and they've been doing it for like almost two years that they were in stealth mode and i was probably a jerk of a friend. Because i was like you should just use rubio rails on rails use ruby on rails and i finally wore them down to the point. They were like okay. Ben i will try ruby on rails and they ended up rebuilding the entire application in just a few weeks. I think it was was like two and a half weeks. And i think those are the kind of stories that i want. More people to be telling about ruby on rails are not just like the o. Is at fast enough. Doesn't have this feature but really just look. This is what we built our business on. And i think that sort of thing is just. That's the place ruby on rails is that it's like this is a great tool for the things that people are trying to do in life. Absolutely so ben. How can listeners.

The Climate Workhorse: Extremely Cheap, Clean Electricity
"Sheldon welcome. Thanks for having me excited to have you here. How long have you been in the clean power business. Would you say I started in the power business in the Right around the turn of the millennium and at that point we we all thought that gas power was clean power. Calpine who i worked for for a long time was Was re powering. America with a clean natural gas realistically have been in the clean power business since about two thousand and sixty thousand seven when i got out of business school and You know helped start and build a recurrent energy So long longtime long longer than most that. That's that's good all right so fifteen or so years in we now define as clean power at another six or seven years if you wanna define Natural gas power as well. So let's start with then where we are today given your long historical trajectory here like i. Would you characterize the state of clean. Power today chaotic. I think. I think it's it's it's it's it's an industry that everybody expects explosive growth from And everybody kind of knows that it's inevitable in the end But but in the near term you know i would characterize it as being marred by sort of fits and starts you know of not wanting to get into policy or anything but but trade issues and supply chain. You know there's there's so many It like every industry has has just been through the wringer in the last couple of years right not not so much all bad but just the volatility So it seems like every day you're responding to some other crisis in the business and so while the general trend is kind of up into the right and there is enormous growth opportunity. You know for for for everybody in the sector it. I keep joking the team. There must be easier ways to make money and save the world. It's it's it's it's definitely harder to save the world and make money then you then you think it is or then then it sounds like a be.
CNN's Don Lemon Says Major Metropolitan, Democrat-Run Cities Have Become More Segregated
"Go major metropolitan areas all across this country have become more racially segregated in the last 30 years. I have to laugh at this in a sick way. Because more and more of these universities are having segregated graduations. Have you seen that Mr produced? Okay, everybody in the name of unity and diversity. We're going to have all right. The black kids, you're going to have your graduation Tuesday. The Hispanic kids Wednesday. Asian kids. Why do we have Asian kids here? The Supreme Court said We can discriminate against you. Nonetheless, they're here and the white supremacists on on Thursday, and the Jews were going to have them doing Shabbat because we can't really get the assembly room. Okay, There we are. Now this has gone on in our universities all across the country. They can't make up their minds on the left. Do they want segregation, but they want integration. They want universal unity. Or do they want separatism? They want it all and they want nothing. But anyway, when I want an intelligent explanation, I always turned to don lemon. Go ahead. Segregated, Not less, really. 81% of regions with more than 200,000 residents were more segregated in 2019. You know what I'd like to know. I'd like to know about wealth. Where do the wealthy Television hosts who are minorities. Where do they live? Were the wealthy athletes who are minorities. Where do they live? Where the wealthy entertainers in Hollywood where do they live? Many of them are like Sheldon White House, AK Outhouse. They say one thing and they do

"And so, Sheldon Outhouse henceforth. Long tradition of Rhode Island of these white all White Bailey's beach clubs, and you know what? Minimal attention today by the big media. Minimum. Minimal. They're always looking for reasons to go after Trump. But here they have a guy they've got him. The name it even works. White House. He only goes into White House is this guy? It's unbelievable. But they don't want to hurt him. He's an attack dog for the left. He favors abortion on demand He favors open borders. He favors all the stuff that you know you got a favor in order to be a crackpot, unhinged leftist. So I want to give a hat tip to go local prov because they uncovered this. Of course not the Washington compost in the next limes. No, no, no. They wouldn't dare to look at Outhouse. Cut eight Go back in 2017. You had expressed concerns about the membership of the All White Bailey speech club said that you hoped it would become more diverse. Now your family spend members. Your wife is one of the largest shareholders. Has there been any traction and are there any minority members of the club now I think the people who are running the place we're still working on that. And I'm sorry. It hasn't happened yet. Do you have concerns and Danny? She just said your wife is a major shareholder in the club. That's interesting. His wife, not the two of them his wife as a major shareholder, so he knows this is sleazy. He knows politically, It's a bad thing. So the wife, he puts the wife well, She's a major shareholder. I I just wish that hasn't happened. I wish you what? Well, what about your wife? You jerk.

"The temple, through the temple and elsewhere. And he showed him how they were desecrating the temple with graffiti people were praying towards the sun, this type of thing right off. And so he called what he called, the a called The Executioner's of the city. And this man of God told The Executioner's that they were going off, they were going to have to go out into the City and mark the faces of the four heads rather of the people who cried and wept over what was going on in the month. And for the others, they were to execute and they came back and told the man of God missions accomplished. It is done. And I believe what was going on there is this? God was letting Ezekiel know what happened in Jerusalem, what happened in Judah and why it had to happen as amazing. Yep, I'll have to go back and find that one again. You know, it's funny, I've read the Bible from cover to cover several times, and there's so many times even in Genesis and exodus of a, wait, a minute, was that in here? Before, I think it's Ezekiel, I'm trying to think of as either. I think it's Ezekiel 8, I believe, okay. But that's what's happening in this country, we have to be praying for our country, for the right is as to appear for people to change their hearts. On one of the things we've got going on today as as apostasy a lot of people in churches, ministers are giving birth The pulpit and turning. From God, you have churches closing down by the hundreds, each month or excuse me. I think it's by the thousands. It's really growing right now. And churches are closing each month and you're talking about, not just people in the church turning from the phase we're talking about, the people who hold the office of The Shepherd of the church at and that's what blows me away. People. I mean we know on a national basis who are supposed to be well respected among peers of the Gospel are turning away from a gospel and that leads their congregation with them is sad. It's really sad. I never thought I would actually see this day. We're seeing it. Oh, I know. And you wonder, where's it going to end a lot of our young people are embracing communism. A lot of our young people are dead. Racing Satanism and sadly they don't even know what it is. They're embracing and you know they don't it's it's really a shame as a cruise. Think God, God opened my eyes to the things that I have read in the Bible, otherwise would not have understood..

"It has a lot of the things we should should not do, and I don't use do's and don'ts, but it's set up exactly like the UCMJ with log. That's at a time of telling you how to carry out your duty as a Christian and doing it in an outline form. With Roman numerals just like they do in the UCMJ off. One of the things about the UCMJ too, is that you sent you bring that up is it's not so much about the do's and don'ts as well. There's a lot of that in there obviously, but one of the things that I noticed, do you see? MJ is, how you carry yourself? And not just that work. When you're, you know, on your posts are on your basis, how you carry yourself off post because you're a representative or ambassador of the military or the United States government. And I'm assuming that's what you're talking about here too. It's not just about what to do and what not to do is how to carry yourself. Try to carry yourself off and we are ambassadors of the kingdom of God here. This is not our home and what happens is and I'm going to share something to you. That I'm writing another book that will deal with this as call log. Act of treason and people don't realize because you are a governmental responsible person to the kingdom of God, you are a diplomat. We had to be careful of what we do. So we don't Aid and abet in a bet. The enemy a friend of mine called me the other day and I I already talked to him about this because it's the same thing, the Lord showed me, but she said to him that if he ever voted for something that had called for abortion, various types of sexual, whatever's brought, you can go down the line. He said the Lord told him, he said, he will have committed treason. You see, people don't think about that. We are ambassadors of Jesus Christ. We are ambassadors of God, we are here. He's our King. And when we vote for people that have platforms, I'm not talking about it. The person's a good person or a bad person. I'm talking about the platform's those platforms off. Godly, then we, we can't vote for them without committing treason because we are an official representative of the kingdom of God. It's like, if I sent, if I were president and I sent an ambassador to.

"Now, if they come to me and they fool around, don't do our exercises. And just took use this as a confessionary, then we kick them out, right? We don't want anything to do with them. And I think desire to be free has a lot to do with, not just doing the program. If you're just doing the program, you just going through the motions. But if you really want to be or as you put a, do you want free? You have to work toward free weights in place. You have to be serious about the program. That's right. Now the other Ministry we have through drowning to Freedom, Is Our God fire radio program and we have that we're doing that in the United States. We right now we have five radio stations cash program or yeah 5. And we hope to expand that in the future. The other Ministry we have is this and it's called missions. A fire. Org missions of fire. Org. Now, that's where we help churches learn how to use our call schools. So they can go into an area in their International Outreach. Instead of being there for months and months and months, just trying to get acquainted with some people to call schools and the system will use really work because we found out that there are young people in these countries that are really hungry for the long. So what we do is we set up the call schools to work with the 18 to 25. Maybe a little older thirty year olds and they're such a change that takes place in those young men and women that Georgia. Call schools that the parents come to the teachers and say I don't know what you did but my children have changed and because of that they start going to church with their children. So often a lot of our churches are have been built just out of our call schools. That is amazing when I was, I mean that you bring it up and that way because when I was involved with in a City Mission here in Jackson, that's really all we reached out to was the children in areas that we went to it was it was completely amazing to me that these children were so hungry and once they may see Christ they were literally.

"We planted around sixty to sixty sixty-one. Sixty-two churches in Pune India. I believe that's correct. Yes yeah. So it's it's really gone. It's really gone. Well that is awesome. Art director, there is dr. John ratnum and off this man is appalled before covid-19 her pastors were going out every day during the week to go into new Villages and lead people to Christ wage then they would set up our call schools there. And after they have trained enough, they would then plant a pastor and start another church. One of the places, I remember we went dead. We call it the village. There were three villages that were basically connected. John went in there. And he wanted to share our vision with their presidents. They don't have Mayors, they're called presidents, right? And that earned him a betta he went back, he got stoned literally stoned right? He went back and this time he told one of the president's office give me 15 minutes out in your town square. And if you don't like what I'm telling, you, you can do whatever you want to with my body. Wow. So he took out into the Town Square. Yeah, this guy is very brave. He's only about four feet tall but he's, no, he's a little taller but not much. He really is very bright. I was the first time I met him, I knocked on a hotel room door, and I expected to see this Paul Bunyan, figure open the door and the door opened, and I didn't see anybody. You have to look down. Have to look down, but he is, he is, I'd say full of life, but I think the man is just so full of God. He really, I think, God stuff that body with more than the body can. Hopefully, he is truly amazing, man. Of God, I don't think I've ever met anybody like him. He is incredible. You're right. In fact, the first time I brought him to the United States after meeting him. I told him, you know? I'm not sending you back home, I'm keeping it here. I love you that much, man, you are wonderful. Well, he didn't like that. You know, he wouldn't go along with that. And I said, okay, I'll send you back home.

"We have a special guest with us today and I guess is Lynn Sheldon. Who is the founder of President of God, fire, discipleship, outrage. So how are you doing today, man? Doing well. Thank you doing well, I'm glad to have you on the show. You're actually on my third guest on the show and it's always exciting to have that gas but you've got an amazing Ministry going. And you know, first before we talk about the Ministries though, just give us a little brief background on, you know, where you came from, how you got up to this point? Well, I am from the Midwest and my job eventually took me to the South and I really enjoyed the South love the Midwest but their taxes too high. So I stay on the South. But anyway, I guess my background is broadcasting. I went to Northwest Missouri State University. Versity and got my degree there in broadcasting, but I took the sales route. So I spent about forty seven years or so. In broadcast sales pretty of them were here at 1000 station here in the South but during this time God gave me a Ministry to start and so we have it's called Godfather Revival and discipleship Outreach off. Now the give you a little bit about my Christian background, I became a Christian in nineteen eighty-five and it was really interesting how that happened. Wage I was working out of Missouri at a broadcast network there. And I was coming home from a meeting. I had one in Saint Louis. We were living in Jefferson City. At the same time, I tend to church. I thought I was a Christian, but I found out later on. I wasn't attending church. Doesn't make you a Christian. But always listen to Christian radio, because I enjoy talk radio, and that was the only radio you could get as far as talk in those days. So I thought I was listening to this particular pastor and he started talking about the darkness in our hearts, and it's so moved me that I pulled off to the side of the road and just wept. As I realized, I wasn't a good person..

"Know that transition. I didn't realize also like it. Sounds the way you presented in the article was like this remarkable sudden transformation from a democrat to republican. Yeah i think it was. I mean the he talked. I think around nineteen eighty eight. He had some sort of conversation. I think he was. He was single focused. Before internal las vegas politics that do with xenos and and promoting his brand. I think so. He was very laser focused on that And then i think he had some sort of conversation with william bush. George h wishes brother around nineteen eighty eight. That quickly convinced him that. As a as a billionaire you need a you want lower taxes and then the republican Brand of politics and the agenda is much more suitable for someone who wants to want to has the amount of money that he has he understood. It quickly joined the republican party at that point became a member and and then but the allegiance to israel. I think he talks about it. Afterwards as had been like blips of of real connection at he there's one Interesting quote that he had said at the us army veteran and he lamented after the fact like more recently that the uniform i wore in the military unfortunate with not in israel uniform all all we care about is being good zionist being good citizens of israel. Because i even though. I'm not israeli born. Israel's in my heart i think he did have this connection israel. But it didn't really come into fruition until he visited for the first time in nineteen eighty-eight And then of course marriage Miriam adelson Knocker offshore and i think is her maiden name in nineteen ninety one That that was actually at the cassette and she's israeli and she's israeli and international helped. Organize that that the idea of being able to hold a wedding in the said. That's something that's usually acceptable. I'm looking into that too so it doesn't that doesn't really work but next but we'll find tuna but see i mean i'm marrying mandelson has rarely been not just in israel but very ardently right wing israeli. I think helps really format form his politics Even more so so like almost like a new believer sounds like kind of describing. You know yeah again. Yeah maybe aboard against item and maybe the. I think you're right. It came out in the article that ways that he really had this like a revelation and that is kinda put it at some points in terms of describing he. He came like the ground and came wearing his father's shoes saying that he wasn't he hadn't been able to. His father had been too poor to come visit israel but he wanted wanted some part of his father to be with him at when he visited very clearly emotional connection that felt that he felt very strongly about but i mean the the comments that he made about the. Us army That he also had a few comments that were kind of contradictory but some of his stories..

"He had these. That's what you're saying earlier. That would make them different than other. Philanthropists was that he pursued pacific agendas in a way that others just generically sport the institutional palstinians as an enemy. I mean he. He clearly saw them as an enemy. Not as a as a potential ally or right right and what was interesting is that he didn't have as many enemies as one would think like. There's because of his money. People still wanted to get a little bit of a dose of it as well an see people. These rarely centre-left that weren't going as far as some of the far left in the if not now group based in the us it's very far left in his against anti-zionist And sees the solution of being kind of a one state for two peoples kind of a non jewish state. They called a tweeted out. Your mash name be blotted out after adelson is served for this tremendous villains of frenemies. Yeah the worst of the worst. So that's the far left And and they're slightly to their rights. Were also people that said that tried to highlight the problematic nature of adelson's relationship with israel but a little bit to the but to a little bit to their ideas on what one would call the center left. We're figures that aren't trying to trash. After he passed away they do. Maybe it has to do with respecting the dead. But also i think that that recognized first of all of that miriam adelson is still around that still a lot of money that can be. That's at play on. They don't wanna. I think ruffle too many four. I would also hope a lot of money to central central. Yeah i did mention it again. Took a ton of money to birthrights. I think the largest donor to birthright as well but there is still a part of that. That's a politically calculated decision not to to respect him and not say anything. I'm not saying you're wrong..

America conference council which is another one of those organizations in the us that he was bankrolling at another time. He kind of He talked about how the purpose of the existence of the palestinians is to destroy israel. It was very much against a palestinian state of kind of. I think what he meant by very much. Not as much having concern too for the democratic nature of israel he was more very much more concerned with With his remaining jewish state he said i think god i think god didn't say anything about democracy. He he said that. Twenty fourteen speech to iraq He didn't talk about israel remaining as democratic state so that was his worldview. The priority was a jewish state or a democratic one and honestly today polls in israel show that that's also their view of a growing number. If that a plurality of israel jewish israelis that that place the jewish state above the democratic nature of the state. We're gonna veer. Because what you're talking a little bit about the way he's he's raised with an to the who's kind of reminded me a little bit of wrote about his relationship with the president trump in the fact that they were close right. You mentioned that they weren't so close but yet the agenda was a similar agenda right. I think it's also what separates adelson himself. Active Was that he was very honed in on what was important to him. I think there are a lot of other people with more money than him. That haven't had the same kind of influence because he zeroed in on the issues that were important to him..

You mentioned in your piece. The strange interaction. That sarah netanyahu had with miriam adelson could count that and yeah I think sarah netanyahu was known She doesn't have the best image. A lot of israeli media she seen as someone is is paranoid and Very concerned with her image and I think there was a a moment around early. Twenty tens period Our they had regular contact with the adelson's Sarah another point accused claims that at that. Uh miriam adelson headed an affair with the editor of israel. Mark regev Which kind of ruined their relationship with them to be at that point but in this specific incident mentioned that sorry our toll according to the statements given to police by the adelson's there during the during the police investigation of corruption affairs tonio in his role in media.

The iron pitas had a context with them shimon peres relied on them for a big major conference.

Freedom house ranks the level of democracy and freedom in countries reduced. Israel's freedom score because the freedom of the press corps dropped because it's one of its bestselling newspapers is a paid for its framed as journalism. But it's it's paid for arguing for the netanyahu perspective and since that's what israel is reading that we lost our freedom of speech score that that this is a politically motivated.
