Bill O'Reilly Unloads on Democrats Ahead of Midterms
"Your opinion on how the current how the midterm landscape is shaping up? Well, I'm a simple man, as you know, Charlie, right? A simple man. Two years ago today, America had the most vibrant economy on earth. On earth. Now, our economy is a shambles. And people have to make a living, our paying much, much more for the basic necessities of life. One party did that. The Democratic Party. That's it. Now I'm not a party guy. I mean, registered independent. I follow everybody. I watch everybody. I can't imagine and I'm not being supercilious word of the day. Supercilious. I can't imagine any American pulling the lever for a Democrat. If you do that, you're voting for an even worse economy, an even worse border problem. Even more violent crime, you're voting for all of that. Is that what you really want? Is that help you? So I can't imagine the Democrats get any votes. No votes. This is these two years of President Biden. And I hope your viewers enlisted to go to Bill O'Reilly dot com because we fact based it out. We're not ideologues or emotion or anything. It's just fact based. Next to James, if you can, and the president before Abraham Lincoln, who basically stoked the Civil War. Biden's been a worst president's first two years in history.
James Rosen: Sources Report Similar Scenes of Disorientation by Biden
"What to do in the First Lady and this is not the first time that's happened, he always just looks confused when he's up on that stage. Any idea what's going on there? Look, I've spoken with sources inside the administration who report similar scenes of disorientation on the part of the president in various settings. And some of these have been visible to the public. I think there's been two different occasions where the president has sought to shake hands with people who are not standing there. And The White House, we should point out, always responds to any inquiries along these lines. And to my knowledge, I am the only reporter who has put such an inquiry directly to President Biden himself back in January. His aides always respond to increase along these lines by saying that the president is fully robust and engaged and that there is no issue. With his cognitive faculties, but scenes like yesterday's are not good optics for the president. In terms of reassuring Americans about that issue. And to the extent that Americans are concerned about it is manifest in the poll that I asked the president about back in January of this year, which ran in Politico, it was a Politico morning consult poll that found 49% of American voters disagreeing with the statement Joe Biden is mentally fit. The same poll found not even a majority of Democrats willing strongly to affirm that statement. And so when events like these occur, I think they add to that perception that was reflected in that polling data. And when The White House crafts responses that are distinctly unsatisfactory to any sentient listener, I think they inadvertently wind up stoking that perception.
Rick Joyner and Eric Discuss Worshipping the 'Idol of Racism'
"Talking to our friend Rick Joyner, Rick, there's a lot to be said. The title of your book is overcoming evil in the last days. You identify three strongholds, racism, witchcraft, and the religious spirit. Let's talk about that. Racism, I have to say that recently it came to me that the folks who are involved in critical race theory, BLM, they are stoking the fires of racism for them, it's almost as though they worship an idol of racism because it's good for business. Now, I don't know whether some of them may be aware of that, but the irony is that if somebody is making progress in their own in their own issues with other races or whatever, that's bad for business for these folks that they're stoking these fires. They seem to have a glee in the division. They don't really seem interested genuinely in bringing healing or unity or even acknowledging healing and unity when you see it. Because most of the churches I go to are completely multi ethnic, every color, every race, but their voices out there that they don't like that. They want to pretend that things are worse than ever. It's just kind of a bizarre thing as I have observed it. So when you talk about that being one of the three, what's your perspective? Well, I think, you know, Jesus said Satan can not cast out, say, I think many of those who are out there doing the most accusing of others being racist are doing and saying the most racist things of all. And I think that also is because as we were warned, you accuse others. Do you do the same things? And you write it when you try to use Satan or you try to use evil to cast out evil, it only multiplies that evil.
Pennsylvania Adds Mail-in Ballot Application to Voter Registration
"Pennsylvania the federalist abruptly adds mail in ballot application to voter registration form Mid election cycle So in a voter registration form they add a mail in ballot application And they only did it just now Because they were originally separated They did it 11 weeks before the general election Who did it The state legislature No The Democrat controlled Department of State did it And so the bucks county elections director said we believe this proposed form is likely to stoke new and undue confusion concern and skepticism Among voters at a time when it is imperative that we build trust in our election system They're not interested in that Dolphin county elections directorate another one of the counties in Pennsylvania This traumatic change in frontline service of voters with a dual registration mail in ballot application is so close to a potentially pivotal election It's a terrible idea My concern is based on my experience in the shared experience of the other 67 election directors across Pennsylvania since act 77 of 2019 Now that's the controversial law that was passed in 2019 that had no excuse mail in balloting that was added and what they're saying here is who authorized this
Brandon Tatum Is a Voice for the Truth
"Were talking about with regard to black America is that the loudest voices in black America became the voices sometimes explicitly sometimes implicitly of Marxism of atheist Marxism of division of stoking division between the races between the classes and so on and so forth. And you get sucked into that. And it's only by a miracle by God's grace that somehow you get pulled out of that and you're able to see what you see. And now you have been a voice for the truth, not just in this film, Uncle Tom too. But you have been loud and proud about this stuff. How did you get involved in doing your radio show, your podcast? What led you into all that? Because most police officers, it's interesting enough that you become a police officer. But then how do you get activated in that way? What happened to make you say, I want my voice out there? Well, it had been when I was policing and a lot of the guys that I was around, all of the guys that I was cool with, patrolling with their own conservatives. And so they were completely reiterate to me are informed me that, hey, man, you're not a Democrat. I mean, look at the policies and look at the way you stand. What are you staying with God? Look how strong you are as a Christian. They don't embody any of the Christian values that you hold dear to your heart. And then Barack Obama came out and started bashing police and I said I'd never vote for another politician ever in my life that won't stand up for the men and women that were at a uniform. And so that led me to looking over on the other side, looking at the Republicans. Because I believe that Republicans are racist white people when I was growing up. But then I said, you know what? You know, when I got saved, I said, you know, look, we're all children of God. Let me give people a fair shake. Cheap people the way I want to be treated. And let me give the Republicans a let me get a police of trial. Let me get Republicans a try. And I love big Carson. He dropped out endorsed Trump. I went to a Trump rally and I was blown away.

Nancy Pelosi Expected to Visit Taiwan
"Over the weekend, of course, you saw a lot of posturing. It seemed that The White House just wasn't really willing for whatever reason to come out and defend that Nancy Pelosi would be going to Taiwan. We're starting to see a shift in all of that right now as allegedly she is preparing for this trip to Taiwan. Nobody's been there since Newt Gingrich and that was one over 25 years ago at a time when things are in a very different place. I would say that tension with China today is far higher, far greater than what we've seen in the past. I also suspect we risk China will use this to try and stoke some of the nationalism it's trying to stoke right now given given that its economy is in shambles. I mean, heck, look at their GDP. I know President Biden keeps saying, hey, you know, we're the best. We're the prettiest girl at the dance without a whole bunch of lookers, my interpretation of what he's saying. He says we're still the best economy in the world. China had been doing fabulously well, right? Growing at such massive rates and that's down to the 2% range, well, they can't really survive. Growing at 2% given that mass population. So in order for Xi to keep his Jean Sequoia with the people, he's going to need something else. If he doesn't have a thriving economy and upward mobility, which I would argue, China, you just simply can not have because you don't have those basic freedoms in a state run environment like that. Even when they say it's capitalist. So he's going to do something to really still excite the people and I suspect there's going to some of the be some of this posturing going on and he'll use this. He'll use Pelosi's arrival in Taiwan.
Newsom Slams Red State Governors on D.C. Trip

Governor Gavin Newsom said he's frustrated with Republicans and Democrats. He's tired of conservatives criticizing California and rolling back right. And he's irked that his own national party is in fighting harder in the culture war.
Is Justin Simmons the Best Safety in the NFL?
"Number one, story right now at Denver fan dot com, you're looking at Justin Simmons voted league's best safety while Peterson wrote about that if you want to check that out on the website and fan dot com. It is Justin Simmons the best safety in the NFL or was he just voted the best safety in the NFL? You know, it's a great question. He's always, I think stoke really summed it up well when he said any given Sunday he can be the best safety in the NFL, but there are some guys, you know, there are some really good safeties in the NFL bayard comes to mind with the Tennessee Titans. If it's Patrick, make it Fitzpatrick is a really good place. There's a Berlin James Derwin James is an absolute that guy is a difference making. He's a beast. But again, he plays differently. He's down in the box, 90% of the time, or 80% of the time. So it's just the kind of it just depends. He's a different cat,
A Takedown of the Biden Economic Disaster with Maria Bartiromo
"Now no one has their finger more to the pulse of what's really happening in the markets what's happening in the economy, the legendary Maria bartiromo Maria. Welcome back to the program. Hey Charlie, great to see you. Thank you, you too. So help kind of us layman understand what you think is happening right now. It's very confusing, more dollar bills in circulation ever before. The markets are tumbling. What's your take? Yeah, I think it's pretty much you go back to the very fundamental definition of inflation, like you just said, too many dollars chasing too few goods. And this was the threat when the Democrats started pushing their spending plan at the beginning of Joe Biden's presidency. We all know that he signed the COVID relief package in on March of 2021. And at that time, when he first entered The White House, inflation was at 1.4% in January of 21. So, you know, little by little, it has gone up and up and up with all of the spending. They tried to push through a $5 trillion build back better agenda. And that also stoked the expectations of more money. But I would say, and then the infrastructure package in November of last year. And then, of course, on top of once we got some almost 8%, 7 and a half percent inflation, then Russia invaded Ukraine and added to it. I would say one worry that I would have right now is I don't think we've seen the peak. I don't see any evidence of the peak because when you go back to that COVID relief package, you see that there are hundreds of billions of dollars that have gone to states that have not been appropriated yet. So they're still going out. And so you're still having the same situation. You also have not seen the peak months for gasoline. That's the driving months of July and August. So I think we've got a little bit of upset to

Why Doesn't Joe Biden Condemn Protests Outside SCOTUS Justices' Homes?
"Administration condemning the illegal protests outside the homes of Supreme Court Justices? Every day they don't do that is another day that puts the Supreme Court in danger. And you know what? There are Republican leaders, you want to know why people flock to Texas or Florida or even Virginia. Because of governors because of red state governors or even purple states with a Republican governor like Glenn youngkin. Listen to what governor Glenn youngkin said to Jesse watters last night on Fox News. This leak was done to cause chaos, and it was done in order to stoke picketing and parades in order to try to influence justices. And oh, by the way, that's why governor Hogan and I have absolutely demanded that attorney general Garland enforced the federal statute, which is to put people in jail for parading and picking. I don't think he's going to do that though. Do you think Garland's going to step up and do that? I will tell you, I don't think he will, and he absolutely should. It's clear in the statute that that's illegal and he should enforce it. So what are we going to do? We have substantial, we have substantial assets in our state police and we in fact are poised ready to make sure that there's no violence at our justice's homes that the justices are safe. Their neighbors are safe and the demonstrators need to be

Christopher Rufo: Disney Producers Want to Push Queer Agenda Onto Kids
"You know Chris I found The New York Times in the liberal media's coverage of Disney's response to the Florida Bill Hilarious leftist groups out there eagerly pushed Disney because of their market power in Florida left this group to get involved Disney then gets involved conservatives then respond to Disney and The New York Times and the other outlets the flavor of their article Chris is Republican sees Republicans pounce on dizzy We didn't push Disney to get involved They did Yeah exactly I mean it's really amazing I punch you in the face You punch me back And then I say hey look this guy just punched me in the face I mean they have no sense of basic causality And they say well Republicans are stoking a culture war It's like no no no just listen to the videos The videos are shocking One of the executive producers says we are inserting a quote not at all secret gay agenda into content She said that she was quote queering all of the children's content reaching kids as young as two years old And one of the most bizarre things Disney is actually created an internal tracking tool to make sure that they're having enough bisexual asexual and transgender characters This is a specific attempt to engineer content to engineer children And they even admitted it One of the production coordinators said in this call on video controlling the information that reaches children that bypasses parents is a very powerful thing and we should use it We should exploit it And we should be pushing this ideology onto kids before they can even speak So to present that and then to present conservatives who are reacting to that as somehow the aggressor and the culture war is total nonsense and I think it really just shows the weakness of The New York Times opinion
Candace Owens' Theory on the Afghanistan Withdrawal
"You know, one thing that I theorize and obviously I can't prove it at the moment, but our withdrawal from Afghanistan to me seemed really interesting because as soon as we announced our withdrawal China, the leaders came out and said that we instantly recognize Taliban as legitimate government and we're looking to work with them. And the one thing that China does the best is it mines, right? And they've been mining all across the African continent and if you look at what Afghanistan from a resource perspective is rich in, it's either the first or the second in terms of not uranium pardon the lithium, lithium is used for batteries, batteries that are put into cars. Well, one thing that the west has been adamant about is that this is an opportunity, this Russian Ukrainian conflict for us to divest from oil and to look for electric solutions. So I'm theorizing that what we're seeing in the west is that a lot of these families are going long on electric and over and over again, this Biden administration keeps beating that drama electric electric electric. We shouldn't be trying to back on the pipelines. Again, a nonsensical perspective to have when we know that gas prices are going through the roof. It seems like they're trying to force us into the Green New Deal. And I think that that's the only thing that makes the Afghanistan withdrawal makes sense plus what seems to me to be intentional stoking a conflict in the east to be a NATO knowing fully well that for the last three decades. You know, Russia has said that their red line was NATO, expanding eastward. And that's not something that's coming from. Not only coming from the Kremlin, but if you care to look into it, declassified CIA docs, where you can see James baker pardon over and over again insisting that if Germany and Gorbachev pardon, if Gorbachev have agreed to German reunification, that we would agree that we would not expand one inch

Sydney Watson Comments About Mark McGowan Translating English to English
"So what is going on in your home country of Australia We're going to play a video at some point later in the show of a MP over there I don't even remember his name Mark something or whatever Mark McGowan and you saw it and he's doing a public service announcement and Sydney he translates English into English with an Aboriginal translator What is going on What happened to this wonderful country Why is it turning into a police state Okay so I think the first thing that a lot of Americans seem to think is that Aussies have an always will be like America and the reality is that I'm not surprised by anything that we're seeing back home at the moment The video that you're referring to I saw that as well And it was just it's so tragic And so I'm glad you're going to play it because it's humiliating I think for a lot of us And for people who don't know the Aboriginal population I think there's fewer than 1% of the population or Aboriginal but they do have their own little dialect And they also have their own languages and what have you but this video is just disgusting And it's kind of soaking too because aboriginals understand English They're not you know it's not like they have mental problems and they don't know what we're saying So this is really bad But insofar as what's going on to Shelley go to remember that it is a Commonwealth country it's based around English common law and things like that So a lot of what's going on is predicated on the fact that all these are not super stoked with the idea of freedom In fact they value security over freedom That's just something that people have to remember

"Paul. How are you today? We're doing great. Thank you. It's my first time getting the answer. I just want to say thanks. I'm looking forward to getting this question to you. First of all, let me say a roll tie, but I have long in my house. Paul, let me ask you this. Well, my husband, he coached high school football here in Dallas for 22 years. And those young men they were really highly recruited, but what we began to see is the mentality of those young me and once they earned those scholarships from the universities, it wasn't a team sport anymore. And so my thought, well, I want to ask you, do you think that's going to continue now that these young man you know what the NIL do you think that mentality is going to keep spreading and even go through these college players as well? What do you think about that? It's that and the ability for players to simply walk out and go elsewhere. So you have two things coming down the track. And I'd be interested in your perspective because I think the hardest thing for coaches is to keep players all on the same plane and now it's very uneven. And I know certain certain positions in certain players usually get better treatment even though every coach always says that the players have treated equally. But this really has I think when things are going okay, well, this is not an issue, but when things start going, haywire, I think that's when the team, the team concept is going to come undone. Oh, it's really becoming undone. And even the parents get involved, it's almost like you can't tell their key at anything anymore because they've earned a scholarship and now it's like, well, it's like what do you do? The coaches, you know, they're still doing better best, they're still doing their part. And so they go off to college and you kind of wonder, well, with their coaches in college, you're able to tell them what to do. They're making money and you know, and I believe some of them will still play, you know, for the heart of the game, but is kind of iffy. You know, Alicia, you just said something and I don't talk to as many high school coaches as I do college coaches, but they say privately their biggest headaches come from parents. Oh, yes, love it definitely. And don't ever leave. And that's great. It's hard to have the quarterback's father looking over your shoulder at all times. Hey, thank you so much for calling really a pleasure. We are unfortunately up against a break. Still getting a lot of reaction from Ralph stokes interview. That was a truly a stunning conversation about his mom and coach Bryant. More.

"Go anywhere you want. And we trust your decision. The only place you can not go is to the university of Alabama and play for bare Brian because my mom said I've seen him stand up on national TV and say he would never recruit a black player and so you can't go there. I just don't think that's appropriate. So when we told coach Bryant that I could not come to Alabama, his statement was it's unacceptable. He's the number one player in the state and we have to keep him in the state. What do I have to do to change that? And my mom said, you have to come to my house because I won't go three steps to see you. Come to my house, look me in the face and tell me you didn't say it. And coach Bryan said, absolutely. So Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock in Montgomery, Alabama, coach Paul Bear Bryant, the legend came to visit this little black kid. And it was a circus. There were so many people around, you know, they were police there to attend the gate. But the confrontation that day between my mom and coach Paul Bear Bryant was classic. She stood on her front step. She was about 5 9. He was 6, four, 6, 5, and he stood down on the porch and they were almost out of eye and she stood on that top step. And she faced him down with the question of coach. I'm honored that you're here. We love that you would come visit. But why are you here because I know I saw you say you would never recruit a black player in this young man standing here is black. And coach Bryant's respondent with, yes, I did say that. And oh, by the way, I did mean that. But I'm still not here to recruit a black player. I'm here to recruit a good football player and your son happens to be a very good one. And we thought, wow, that was good, good answer. And she said, no, that's not enough, coach. You don't have any black players up there. Who's gonna protect him while he's there? And the response was, I will protect him. I will be his father away from home. And the response not enough coach. You can protect them there, but who's going to protect them when he walks across campus when they call him names and other students aren't nice. 'cause Bryant response was, if I didn't think he was man enough to deal with that, I wouldn't be here. Last question there for a moment, my mom says, not enough. Well, how are you going to treat him? You don't have other black players? Are you going to treat him the same as you treat everybody else? And his response as he's thought for a moment was, no, I will not treat him the same, I'll treat him fair. And after that confrontation and he came in and he visited for about an hour, the next day at breakfast, my mom said and dad told me, you're welcome to make that decision of where you go. We trust you, but if we were you, we would lean toward going to universal Alabama and playing for that man. He made that much of an impact on my family that one day. Wow. What an amazing story. More than 50 years ago, please this is an incredible book. One of the first lessons I learned while overcoming the challenges of integration. Ralph stokes, thank you. The forwards by Sylvester croom, it is so great to see you I know so many people are looking forward to the celebration and we appreciate you coming on. Thank you, Paul. Thank you for your time this afternoon. Thank you very, very much. What an extraordinary story. Wow.

Who it's so good to see you Ralph and I want to talk about your book as well. One of the first lessons I learned while overcoming the challenges of integration. Thank you for being here and I'll see you guys tomorrow night. I know it's got to be exciting, Ralph to see some of your former teammates. I'm sure you've kept up with some, but maybe not all. How are you? Good afternoon, Paul. I am doing well. Thank you for having me on. I'm excited about the opportunity. I want to talk about the book in a second, but just to gather back with so many young guys that young guys you knew in the 70s, here I go, aging ourselves. But that are now coming together. I know you live in the south in Atlanta, but have you kept up with a lot of these guys over the years? With several of them, what we've tried to stay connected with, you know, Ozzie newsome and Joyce Pugh and Woodrow low and a few of us as they pretty close. But several of them, like wilber Jackson, who was my roommate for two years, I haven't seen Wilbur in over 15 years. So there's a few of us like that that it's exciting to be able to get together with them. But a few of us have really stayed pretty close. Others we have contact, but we haven't actually seen each other. So this is exciting weekend for us to get together with guys that opened the door to football for African Americans at the university of Alabama. So let's talk about your story Ralph, which you have written about. It's a fabulous book. I so enjoyed reading it. Even though I've heard so many of these stories, it was chilling to hear you describe growing up in Montgomery. Which everyone knows at one time was the capital of the confederacy. It was a battleground of the civil rights movement where Martin Luther King Jr. really made his name or Rosa Parks changed the world, take us back to that time as a young man growing up in Montgomery, Alabama. Well, Paul growing up in Montgomery had his challenges, but there were some very positive things as well because there was great football and great coaching and it allowed us to develop into young men and growing up in Montgomery through some of the racial challenges kept you focus on trying to build a future. And for me, football was that future for me and trying to find my way to a success and a career. So I tried that trying to play football in baseball and fortunately for me, I was able to get to a really good school and Booker T. Washington a historically black high school in Montgomery that had a strong history of football and success. And so I aspire to get there, I got there and was fortunate enough to make that football team along with my brother theorem. And we were excited about the program and the things we were doing at that school and when they integrated the system in Alabama to make all schools play in one system and not black schools and white schools. Buca T Washington was one of those schools that made the play off my junior year and we were so excited about the potential of challenging for state championship as an all black school. My senior year because we had so many talented players on our team like George Pugh and others that we and Mike Washington that eventually played at Alabama. And we knew we could compete and unfortunately integration came along and we were forced to shut down our school at Bugatti Washington and find other places to play. And I was just struck by the irony, here comes what we all in history look back to as progress, which it turned out to be, in your case, you go from Booker T. Washington named after one of the most important figures ever. And you end up at Robert E. Lee high school. I mean, I know that sounds like we just made that up. But you lived it. Absolutely. On the day that they walked in to tell us that our school was closing Booker T. Washington and we were being sent to other schools, the bad part of it was that we weren't sent to all said to the same school. But a few of us were sent to Jefferson Davis a few to George Washington Carver and Sydney Lanier schools in Montgomery, Alabama, but for me and a few of us we were sent to Robert E. Lee, which just didn't connect very well for us. But we had a great coach Jim Chapin and a great staff there that knew that we all came with some prejudice of life, the 60th or so white players in the 12 or so black players that were asked to come together to make a football team. And these coaches did a great job of teaching us life lessons about respect and how to build a team and eventually we built a team that won the state championship at the largest division in Alabama football. And I was fortunate to be the captain of that team when a captain to lead that team to that state championship and was voted the number one player in the state and then number one running back in the south. And I didn't see that coming on the same day that they closed Booker T. Washington, but ultimately it became a benefit for me and a platform to help others. Let's go to your recruitment. Obviously, Alabama had won countless national championships under coach Brian at this point. And most young people growing up in Alabama wanted to go there, but it wasn't quite so easy in your house to make that decision. Tell us the story of your mom and the bear. Well, as a and several people have heard the story, but growing up, I did not inspire to go to a university of Alabama and play for coach Bryant because there were no black players at Alabama. And we did not foresee this happening to have black players anytime soon. So that wasn't a dream of mine. So after receiving a great number of scholarships I had over a hundred scholarship offers, my mom and dad came and said, you're welcome to.

"Tom Osborne, Eddie Robinson, who certainly deserves to be on that list. Bud Wilkinson, Joe Paterno, Bobby bowden, woody Hayes, Frank Lehi, who won a couple of national championships at Notre-Dame for those of you unfamiliar. Pop Warner was 11. John McKay, Barry Switzer, Amos Alonzo stagg, who coached. He began his career in 1890 era at Notre-Dame. Let's see here who had Walter camp fielding yost. He was the name I was trying to remember. Red Blake and Boseman. It's impossible to do, because you have to be you have to set the guidelines. You just can't say best coach of all time. It's really that difficult. Let's continue with more phone calls. And Damien is up next. Hello Damian. Hey, ball. The baby's from Alabama. First I call alone time listening. Thank you very much. Yes. So I just want to ask a question, man. You know, about the Cincinnati game coming up. But you got to, you know, every time you go and blow them out, it might be a close game, you don't. I lean today two weeks from the game would be a blowout. What about you? I think we'll be I think we'll be a blow up, but we might overlook them thing about George and Michigan and I don't think that should happen, man. Naming, I don't think any why would you, why would you overlook somebody when you're playing on a Friday afternoon 11 days before the next game? Makes no sense. I understand sometimes when you're in the 8th game of the season and everybody's talking about the 9th game and you don't care because but this is different. But Alabama won't even know who their opponent is when this game is going on. Hey, thanks for the call. Appreciate it very, very much. See, Mike is up next in Kentucky, how am I? Hey, good afternoon, Paul. Hey, you know, you're wearing the exact three shades of gray that I just remodeled the whole living room. It's funny, I went to a rummage sale the other day. This was from the movie Fifty Shades of Grey. I just picked it up for about 50 bucks. The whole outfit. Gray must be coming in. Your tie is the exact same colors, the porcelain towel, I'll lay around the heart or the wood stove goes in the for you. Your coat is the exact same charcoal gray as the walls in your shirts just a hair darker than the walls. Yeah. So if I can get you mound, if I could get you mounted and put a lampshade on your head you'd make a pretty nice accessory. Yeah, so people are picking out their tight newlyweds picking out their title, they can just point to my shirt and go, okay, that's the color I want in the bathroom. There you go. I want to talk about the college playoffs. Paul, it's refreshing to see two new teams making their maiden voyage into the college playoffs this year. I think Michigan and Alabama will make for a compelling championship. I can't see Georgia getting in. I just can't curve smart has proven time and time again when the lights are bright and the stakes are high. He can't coach a fat man to a free dinner ball, roll that gum. Is that an Alabama fan wishful thinking or is that really how they think? Steven is up next to hello, Steven. Well, thank you. Listen, I call about a year ago about the name image likeness thing. I've been thinking about Jim Thorpe, who was an American Indian who set several. Olympic medals in many places later in the NFL, but he lost his Olympic medals because he had played semi pro ball. Right. With the revision of the name image was there pretty possibility that he might get a somebody might restore his mills. It's just a hypothetical question. It's a great, it's a great, it's a great question, but I'm not sure how it would be applicable though because you have college rules are going to be a little bit different than what we're talking about here is the International Olympic Committee making a ruling based on something that has happened in the NCAA. And I think you could easily argue that you have absolutely nothing to do with one another. Hey, thanks for the call. I appreciate it. Ralph stokes. Legendary player at Alabama, part of the.

"Papa dog is up next. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. Couple things I wanted to ask and get your opinion on the first recruiting day this past Wednesday. I usually look forward to that every year. It's like Christmas. But with the transport portal, it seems like it's diminished a little. It's just not as exciting because with the transfer portal or team can go grab their needs from transfers now. Yeah, I think another thing is that we all over decades became so used to it being that first Wednesday in February, where really not a lot had happened between the ball games and that. And now it's the next week after the championship games and it's a little hard to wrap your arms around. So I hear you. It may not be as exciting. It is important for this reason, though. And the coaches like it because if you sign this week, guess what? You can enroll in January. You can start working out in the weight room and be available in March and April when spring practice begins. And that's the new that's the new normal in big time college athletics. So let's continue more phone calls and Woods is in South Carolina. Hello Woods. Hey, how are you, mister Flynn? I am a Columbia, South Carolina, and after many, many years of disappointment from the South Carolina game Cox that appears at this point Boggs the final story. Coach beamer has got us going in the right direction, especially with the transfer of Spencer rat. What do you think is the future for the South Carolina game Cox? Yeah, I've been wrong before, but I like worry he is. And I think rattler is his most coveted possession at the moment because he's a given. We know what he's capable of. And the tight end as well. You have two players very familiar with Shane beamer and most important. I really like the enthusiasm that he has pumped into this program. By the last couple of games of will mushy, this program did not have a pulse. It does now. Well, thank you so much. And I just want to give a quick shout out to author college. Hopefully we'll be in the big dance this year. Thank you so much for me. Guy is up next in South Carolina as well. Hello guy. Hello, Paul. Thanks for taking my call. I've got a burning question. I'm Alabama, so I know my top two orbit. What is your 5 top college football coaches of all time? Now, I have to ask you this. Because are we talking the theoretical modern era from the 50s or 60s on? Are we talking newt rockney? It's a complicated conversation if we're talking the history of the game. Well, Paul, I like my opinion now. I go with I did go with Bayer because I was a bare man, but I'm half a million now. I think that Sabin is the goat. And then I'm talking about both errors. Well, I think it gets very this is always a weird thing to do because you're almost have to throw a bunch of names into it and then start deciding where you want to go. So I think the argument about Saban Bryant because Bryant really crossed arrows. He started coaching in the late 40s, early 50s, and I don't know how to rank Frank Leahy at Notre-Dame newt rockne. I mean, you got guys to go back in the turn of the turn of the 20th century that certainly capable of being in this conversation. I think as you move throughout, you then get into someone like a general nyland about Wilkinson and then you start climbing toward the 50s and 60s and you enter Bryant and other other names to the equation. So I struggle with this list. I've seen a million of them and I've never done one myself, but it's certainly a good project. Yeah, I would honestly as much as important as your theory as on college football, I would think that fans would be looking forward to your top 5 or even a top ten. Yeah, I really, I'd have to yeah, something that you have to think about and you have to you have to delineate what period you're talking about before. I mentioned this a few times this week. If you're talking the last 20 years, you're then having a conversation about Nick Saban and urban Meyer, if you're talking 30 or 40 years, you start adding spur your and Bobby bowden and Joe Paterno to that conversation or Tom Osborne. So it's a fairly complicated list depending on where you want to begin. Well, I'll tell you what, Paul, I appreciate you taking my phone call, but I'll just say, I've got 7 minutes to go embarrass a second one, and then you could go into, but I just want to say RTR from South Carolina. Yeah, ESPN did this list a couple of years ago. I'm trying to call it up right now just to give you an idea of and it's always controversial because who are you going to put in their list was Bryant Sabin in my trying to newt rock me,.

"The pride passion and pageantry of college football lives here. This is the qualifying bomb show hour two podcast. We're back second hour, look forward to a couple of guests dropping by here in just a few minutes and let us continue with more of your phone calls and Brian is up next in Georgia hey Brian. Hey. I just wanted to talk about the Travis hunter thing because I think it's a bold move but I think it's like a good move because he's going to be that guy at Jacksonville state or Jackson state. He could be like starting something. I just wanted to see what you thought about it. I think it's a very significant move because he was the first one and when you are that it's going to be more dramatic and more significant than the second or third or fourth. But it's really a matter of choice. I think the fact that Florida state is floundering may have had something to do with it. He'd been committed for a year, I believe. And I think there is just a lot of excitement right now connected to Deon Sanders. Hey, thank you for the call. Appreciate it. How about Dwayne in Georgia? Hello Dwayne Paul just wound up real quickly talk about the allies she was kind of disappointed about unless you get in Brian Kelly, but then after I started looking at his record, I think maybe we ought to give him a chance and that he accomplished years, I guess before. He might turn it around and I think it's going to be good. And also I wanted to just give a shout out to Matt and San Antonio brownian talk about his. Jab that are doing tigers for weapon. Thanks physician and I just had to say that just a really. Hey, thank you, Duane. You be well. Take care of yourself. Hayden is up next in Virginia. Hello Hayden. Hey, Paul. How are you today? Quite well. Thank you. Couple of things I wanted to touch on real quick. You had the caller earlier, talked about the coaches from the southeastern conference in the racial issue historically. Obviously, I definitely agree with that. But proud of auburn, here recently, with the Allen green hire. I think Alan's making the right move, not what the boosters want, obviously, especially hiring Carson. Unlike JJ Jacobson, horrible jeans, is it hard? That was one of the worst hires in college football. History to ask me, even though he won a city national championship, I know, but I would like to give credit to gush mails on and play a Newton and fairly for that one. What I really want to talk about today was Brian and auburn's quarterback situation. And you interviewed a course in the other day, great interview. Thank you. And what is your stance on auburn's quarterback situation right now? There's rumors of us getting a transfer from USC over state cadence alone. I'm not sure about that, but I think it's there's definitely going to be a transfer and it seemed like parson knew who that person was the other day when we talked to him. Because I don't think TJ Finley could come in and start for the entire year, but there's also a hiring call. Quarterbacks go to Austin Davis. Right. But a lot of people are speculating since he coached Russell Wilson. D Davis is a miniature Russell Wilson right now. He's literally seeing the same playing style what do you think about playing him? Yeah, I don't know. I mean, I think, in the end, it's going to take some time to sort the auburn QB situation out. I really do appreciate your call, but I think Carson has done a good job. I know the collapse of the season was not good. At the end, and I know he's had some pretty important opt outs for the Birmingham bowl, but none of that's really going to matter. It's how he continues to recruit and what he looks like as he moves forward. Thanks for the call. Tom is in Texas. You're on the air hello Tom. Hey, Paul, I'm mom. I just wanted to really appreciate your show. Thank you. The badger is just really entertaining to me. But I was terrified the last two weeks that before the Alabama game area announced a big George. And when it got to you, you were last mapped out. I know Paul is going to go with us and you will enjoy the two and that's it. Man, there's no reason disappointed. People. But I just really appreciate your show, man, won't tell her by Merry Christmas. And I got a little nephew going to Tuscaloosa Douglas. I wanted to give a chat at the ham. Well, you have a great Christmas and thanks so much for the call. Appreciate it. Eddie is in Georgia. Hello. Hello, I'm ready to support my mom. Andy, we are doing great. Thank you. Please resign from that was bears last. Almost last lamb. He still got one name out there. I just wondered if you know who he is and tell me who it was. I don't know who he is. So you're talking about bears last coach out there right now? Yes, sir, yes, sir. Wow, I do not. I don't think I know that off the top of my head. How about Bruce Arians? He graduated from Virginia tech in 74, and he was on bare staff in 81 and 82. He sure was. First met Bruce then, and you're a 100% correct. And I should have thought it. He's only one of the most he's only the reigning Super Bowl coach. I'm thinking more of one a bear's players, I guess, as opposed to one of his coaches, but you are correct. So do I get a little pecan or something? Yeah, by the way, I just found a fruitcake under the desk here from 2015. If you'd like that, we'll package it up. Well, I can get one as quick as that, because I don't live too far from Paxton. Yeah. I think yours will be better. Where did that come from? The fruitcake and Christmas. They do come from Georgia, by the way. Thank you for the call. CJ is in Georgia and you are on the air. Hello, CJ. Hey, Paul. How are you doing? We're doing well. Thank you. First time caller, longtime listener, Paul. I got a question in a comment for you place. If you don't mind, my comment is listen to your show rigor. And I was listening to Roman hopper over the day talking about how Georgia course you know I'm a major fan. Needed a quarterback. You need to let him know that he needs to check with a gunner Stockton who Georgia just signed. It was wondered to have recruits, sending them in person as well as on TV and he is going to be an elite quarterback for us. And my question to you is this with Texas and Oklahoma coming into the SEC, where would they go probably to the east or west? And I've heard talk that Alabama and Albert might move over to the east wear this. If you would give me your response to that first of all, gunner has the best name for a quarterback. I've heard in a long time. You can't miss. Hey, thank you for the call. As far as the second question, I don't think we're going to have divisions when Texas and Oklahoma joined the SEC. There's a lot of conversation about that right now. And at last check, and this is all speculation they are going to dissolve the east west. And go to a system where you have 14 pods and that enables you to have your regular rivals and then you end up getting to play everyone else on a more continual basis. Thanks for the call, appreciate it. Let's talk to Sal, who is up next. Good afternoon. Hey, Paul. A long time listener. I got a couple of questions for you. Sure. Pertaining about the SEC. I was wondering your thoughts on how well you think Brian Kelly is going to fit in at LSU and my other question was pretending to Alabama basketball seeing how they done the past couple of weeks coming off a poor loss to an unranked team. How far do you think they'll make a run in March Madness? Yes, thank you. I think Alabama basketball is in an equally good, maybe even a better position than a year ago to make a run. It's always hard to guess that. But I think there certainly there were sweet 16 team a year ago and I don't see any reason not to think they can maybe do better. So I appreciate your call very much. Thanks for that. We are heading to a break. We'll come back and have a couple of guests dropping by in a moment. More of your phone calls after this..

"So he just calls of everybody in places that kajillions orders you know and you multiply that across the economy and you have this phantom demand that has built up and it takes a while for everybody to dial back down. All for people cancelled orders. You know what some guys are doing. Well some manufacturers. You're saying you're going to give me a deposit on these orders and your contractually obligated. Take delivery of them you know. So that's they're trying to cut down on this. This kind of like will only need five. But i'm going to order fifty. They're saying look. If you want to order fifty you can order fifty. But you're going to be all you're gonna sign on the dotted line that you will take delivery of fifty new will pay me for fifty and so there are. Oem's that are desperate enough to do that. You know so. They are silent with these inflated rates for inflated inventories so that they can take delivery of all that stuff so there's a demand surge that is hitting there's a mansard The semiconductor industry. There's a demand surge that you know hit lumber awhile back and cratered and now to steal so so this. This is kind of moving waves across the supply chain. Shipping is a factor. So so you ask them what the factors were. So one is phantom orders. That's a factor like there's real demand from from the stimulus from the restarting. The there's legit demand. There's phantom ordered we fake demand that's like puffed up how panic there are very real shipping constraints China lost to shipping pasadena. Just like two three weeks ago. Whilst a chunk of airfreight passed from cova crews now from kobe they have ports closed code. They have factories closed on kobe. So they have you know. Delta is hitting them. The sign of acts dak scene is just not very good. It wasn't that great against you. Know version one point oh of corona virus and and it's really not that great against delta. So they have you know outbreaks. They are probably not able to control them. They have had flooding over there. You know so they have. How a lot of different challenges. Keeping their ports open their factories opened staff and keeping their internal. You know Engine hummy so. There's all kinds of supply constraints that are going on there. So you've got shipping you supply you got the whole thing is a mess and then on top of that you have businesses that are sitting on just piles of cash and they have so much. I work a little bit in the banking industry and one of the biggest problems that have is normally you go out and give loans and you gotta keep your deposits coming in so you got plenty of money to be able to loan out. That's not the problem now. Now the problem is the deposits are amounts are so high because people were saving cash. They weren't making they weren't building. And if you're not making capital like large-scale build out a factory or build out more infrastructure than what are you going to do well you you have money but you don't have supplies you're going to be willing to pay a much higher price for it. So then that. Only accelerates the the the weird way in which prices increase in and the phantom orders all combined together..

About the conflict in northern ethiopia and the province of guy if the government tried to disarm its political rivals in the north intense violence massive displacement of to grind civilians. Today there is talk of famine in tigray humanitarian workers. Trying to help people crossing the border into eastern sudan. Say they show clear signs of starvation as well as trauma. The international rescue committee is medina. Raza recently returned from the region. She joins us from nairobi. Can you tell us about some of the refugees. You met medina who fled into sudan. What sort of stories did they share with you especially about accessing food. Most of them severely traumatized quite underweight telling stories of the atrocities that seen a wealth. They fled from to gratuity sudan. Many of them had arrived severely malnourished integrate as you know through a massive issues getting access to food and supplies during the height of the conflict at the end of last year. Children were arriving unaccompanied. Women are having to for example engage in sexually explicit to relationships and exchanging sex for money dispersed more amounts of money just in order to survive and feet that children so it is quite attractive situation so as accurate as famine. Sounds like it may be to describe what's happening in tigray Famines also were. That is highly charged. It's one the ethiopian. Government does not want to hear. It doesn't want to be seen as the bad guy here. it's my understanding that humanitarian groups. Worry that if it is called famine they might not be led into the region. Can you explain that. There are some conflicting reports about the level of tonga. We're seeing into gripe the moment there's no doubt that there are rising levels of hunger into granny theat large at the moment and what i can't say for sure. Is that if the planting season continues to be disrupted because of the rain on because of the conflict person to guide and in the region come next few months at a time that say we will see catastrophic levels of hunger definitely around when already seeing now as you know. Pope francis said his noon prayer. Less sunday demanded that humanitarian aid. Reach hungry people inside to gray. What impact is words having. Can you talk about the kind of access. A groups like yours. The irs actually have so the height of the conflict there were issues with access especially in the rural areas and that did ease up in recent months but there are still definitely access issues especially in the rural areas where the humanitarian aid is needed. Most i'm so one of the things we all calling for is access unfettered access tool those areas that are affected i want to ask you about women especially unaccompanied women. They're so vulnerable in these sorts of situations and there have been atrocious accounts of what many women have been through since last november. What stories did they share with you. Did they feel comfortable sharing with you. So many of the women we've spoken to at told us of of the atrocities that have been feted against them including gang rape including as i mentioned earlier. The sexually explicit relationships that having to engage in women are highly at risk because of the fact that the pace it that the sleeping on not segregated And they don't have the protection they require to be safe in those situations as well. So that's one of the things we're trying to mitigate against by providing gender-based counseling services and also trying to raise awareness of the risks that women could face within these camps as well and then there are the children streaming into sudan from tigray. What's life like for them. I think john six thousand children that had arrived unaccompanied any sudan against severely traumatized. I mean we're trying to help at least reunited with their families. Always put them in foster care and of course with the with levels of hunger. We're seeing in the country at the moment this'll secondary impacts such stunted growth. One of the mothers. I spoke to told us that you know son had been falling out of bed because of the nightmares. He was having multiple times in one night because of what he'd seen as he fed from two gratuity sudan.

"Here in other words you they heard and that is what people like yana. Najuma hope to do on saturday. Your points on each other because we know were all that we have in this moment in time that we shared together. She says we will come as strangers but we will leave as family for the world. I'm rebecca cancer in shanghai in north korea. The ruling party has been meeting this week. According to state media leader. Kim jong un says countries prepare for both dialogue and confrontation with the united states. The statement comes days after the. Us and other group of seven nations called on north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. Our next guest has been following this closely. John everard is a former ambassador from the uk to north korea ambassador dialogue and confrontation. Those were kim jong un's words it's kind of like prepare for night and day. How do you interpret that. They've been saying this or something very similar for quite a long time now. Keeping both doors open stressing that they're open to dialogue but they're prepared to stand up for themselves if they feel that they're on and entity is being infringed in their favorite phrase all if they feel the. us is bullying them so the formulation was not a tremendous surprise. There's been other news out of the ruling party conference as well. Kim jong made reference to the fact that there have been food shortages in north korea. Admitting that seems big for him what are you reading into that close. You have to look at kim jong un's remarks on this alongside the latest report on the food situation in north korea from the food and agriculture organization the united nations which came out just a few days ago in the fourteenth of june. And there's quite a difference. The united nations is saying that yes. North korea is sort of food with north korea. Usually is sort of food and this year doesn't look very much worse than previous years but the north korean regime is clearly very worried about the food situation either kim's on and his advisors knew something that the united nations don't know to make them believe the food situation is actually a great deal worse or he is worried about the gap between what is going on on the ground in north korea and his own rhetoric. This goes back to the singapore summit. We all focused on. What president trump and Chairman kim said to each other but the real message the north korean people was what he showed. Singapore uncensored pictures of modern glistening city state lights on bright skyscrapers and this went out. Primetime north korean television champion. Kim was leading the north korean. People that things will get better is getting them a vision of the future. Three years on he hasn't delivered on any of those imply promises. Indeed life has got quite a lot harder for orrin north. Koreans and i think the politically akins on on is starting to feel the heat. Well that's interesting because there has been speculation about kim jong himself. There were these photos that were released recently. That showed him looking noticeably thinner than before there was also a document leaked a few weeks ago saying he may have a new second in command. So what's going on with kim jong un. I have to say that. The evidence that i've seen for real serious health problems is being rather scant. I am left wondering whether the move that we saw in the party. Congress in january where as you rightly say the congress created the position of a second in command in the party whether they are designed to reflect not physical weakness but political weakness. Whether kim jong un is actually things slowly pushed to the sidelines in the actual implementation of power in north korea. It may be that. The shock of failed annoy summit and remember that americans present in the room. They're the said. When president trump walked out and kim went white. This is the shock of his political life that the failure of that policy has damaged him to the extent. That bigwigs in the party are moving to a system where life can work without chairman. Kim have signed all the papers. If so that will be a tremendous step if you were advising president biden. miss sorta. How would you tell them to proceed through what appears to be some early signs of some kind of pivot. I would suggest the renews efforts to establish a channel dialogue with north korea. Now this is a frustrating job. The administration thing to do this ever since it came to office and has got very little response. Maybe a message of some kind to ten kim. Just telling him that president biden. I've heard what you say dollar confrontation. Let's do dialogue and see what he says john. Everard is a former british diplomat. Who was uk ambassador to north korea from two thousand six to two thousand eight ambassador. Thank you very much for your thoughts. You'll very welcome. We'll be right back with the second half of the show. You're listening to the world. If you're one of those looking to buy a new car be prepared to wait or pay through the nose.

A yana. jemma is an american teacher. Working in china she moved here for years ago after fifteen years working in cincinnati public schools. She says she has no intention of returning. I am safe as a brown person in china you know. Of course there are cici tv cameras everywhere on trying our comings and goings and so that allows me rate deal of comfort. Chances are no one is going. Try to harm. The juma says. She's enjoying her time here. But it can feel isolating. The city she lives in huffy has more people than new york city. But numa says she can count on one hand. The number of people seen who looked like her. That's why this weekend. Nujoma is traveling. Almost three hundred miles away to shanghai to join one of china's first juneteenth celebrations. The duma says. She celebrated the holiday as a child at barbecues. Her mom helped organize. This will be her first time celebrating in china. I'm looking forward to getting some real serious books. we'll knowledge those deep soul grabbing hugs. Some of the organizers of shanghai's juneteenth celebration actually didn't grow up observing the holiday bruce robinson and his wife tests came to shanghai fifteen years ago on a one year assignment and ended up staying now. He works as an executive coach here. You can't find your community and you can recreate that black experience. Even outside the united states before the pandemic he organized a black. Men's group a kind of barbershop group for networking and mentoring. But they haven't met in person for over a year now he says china recovers from cova nineteen. The time is ripe for a return to in person gatherings chino's to come together and celebrate our heritage. Even though many of us are not able to return home some people haven't seen their loved ones for over a year. And i really think people are looking for that sense of community. He and the other organizers thought juneteenth celebration might be a way to grow the black business network here black owned businesses will be at the event selling their products and services. There's an entrepreneurship by example and of recycling black dollars. If you will through commerce fellow organizer william frazier. I came to shanghai twenty years ago.

This is after American stocks broke a six day winning streak Investors perhaps scratching their heads as to whether commitments by the Fed and the by the administration to let the economy run hot.

I'm to these Pellegrini in the Bloomberg News from this is Bloomberg Rich. All right. Thanks. So Denise, let's get back to the guest Gets with his half hour is Brian Jackman and CIA and Portfolio manager Dwight CG. Tell me something here, Brian, you look at what's happening. We see elevated valuations or are the elevated. Some would argue against seven? What for you as we do get perhaps the light of the end of the coronavirus tunnel. Is the biggest biggest obstacle for us to get out of the woods. What the question is. What do I see is the biggest obstacle to get us out of the woods. Economically speaking. Yeah. I mean, I think ultimately I almost I often think of it, like, run An island. And my worry is is that all this stimulus leads to everyone sitting around on the island and at some point You need to get people that we've got to be productive and we got a big old contributing to society. And, um, you know, ultimately to get there. You need to have no fear. And I think that fear has been subsiding were surrounding Corona virus. But one of the other obstacles is simply the government itself, you know, preventing businesses from working or preventing people from making the choices and decisions they'd make that would lead to economic activity. When you look at the earnings that we have seen for the last quarter guidance for the current quarter, and then the visibility that company's air trying to engender for the remainder of the year. What's the takeaway for you? Well, ultimately, my takeaway as I look back over the surging season. Is that I feel most comfortable being Lined with businesses that Have pricing power so that whether we have inflation deflation no matter what happens, Whatever economic scenario we face, the businesses are robust and in the face of that And so when I say enduring pricing power What I'm referring to is that they if you had a virtually identical competitors come along and undercut you on price. That you can continue to charge a premium and on still grow your volumes. That's extremely rare to be able To find that type of business, and there is usually present in there some sort of a global network of some kind. And so what we're trying always do is regardless, what's gonna happen the economy We just want to ask that the line These global champion businesses that have been during pricing power and can produce an avalanche of cash. No matter what comes our way. And that takes his nice Sergio stop convictions. And would those particular types of companies include the global debt issuance? Gatekeepers as it were amongst other things, and we're talking the likes of Moody's and S and P Global. Yeah, absolutely. Um, we really do like both the two largest rating agencies, both Moody's and S and people. Um, you know, I view them is basically like toll takers on nearly all global debt issuance. So, as you say they really are the gatekeepers for selling debt to the capital markets Because the reading systems they've essentially become globally recognized languages that are used around the world to communicate the riskiness of debt. So if you don't use them if you try to circumvent them and go around them Your cost of debt actually goes up. Because you're not using a known global language when you write your debt, the capital markets rebel against that the charge a higher cost. Nobody wants to learn this new language. And so it makes it an easy You know, this is one of those evergreen cash flows. As you know, As long as business is being conducted in the world, there will be that being issued to lower the cost of capital. And they have to go through these gatekeepers, and they just act as a toll taker because of that pricing power. It's essentially a global protocol network effect, and that allows them Tonto. You charge no matter what competitors come along. I think in terms of what's happening in China right now, policy makers of the PBOC are especially sensitive to the issue of A lot of dead and managing the liquidity story that markets need against more and more debt or an expansion of credit very quickly. Do you want to be exposed to Asia more than you want to be exposed to the US right now? Hmm. I don't really know the answer to that. But by having you know, in our portfolio on the White Sea Gee enhanced fund. It's basically a Chock full of global, um, just a collection of these global champions, with revenues coming from everywhere, So ah, lot of our exposure to China is through these businesses that have Pricing power because of social status. So brands like Nike Air Mez Louisville Thanh these companies can in order by definition in order.

"That's a hard one. I can say, yes. Yes I am. Actually yes. I would answer yes because. Being a feminist means that I fight for equality of all people, an equity equity of all people and I don't exclude people based on gender race or sexual orientation, and that allows me to kind of view the world as. It could be versus how it is. So I would say, yes, I am a feminist aren't allowed to. Let you come at the gate using a Yes But I kind of pulled back because a lot of people look at feminism as a negative. Instead of looking at exactly.

We have to get out of that mindset to see exactly what the Hell's going on. Yeah. That mindset is so in green and is I mean it stems from how the country was. Originally brought up because.

So with that giant pay gap, of course, like he's going to be the one that buys the house and pays for like most of the things. And even though we did earlier, say that White Man compared to black woman salary is a whole eight months of difference. Women are in more diverse roles and able to make more money in those throws a spacey engineer. I'm always outstanding because I'm still major. The, way to go. But biased so. so especially, like stem role, you know you know I know a couple of minutes making light six figures you know. And so me when my paltry faucet five figure salary.

I'm cool with if you go with it like hanging problems, you make them more to me nine take away and that's Another thing about it too is Some feel that masculinity is at stake when they're women makes more than them but I.

It just adds more to the household and like you're saying like that nineteen thirties twenties way of thinking like you know the man has to work and put the most money in the household that and I still see in it makes me cringe I still see like brands on facebook and stuff that are see Madhu need to be making more to me get my hair done not what? I need to be able to do that for myself like that. That's what empowers me I need to be able to do that for myself like a mayor I'm happily married but. I'm able to do things for Matt solve like Yes. I. Have a husband but he he's not my end. All be all. To you know go out and get just as he goes out and gets and that's how it should be. It should be fifty, fifty, not twenty eighty. Speak Thome I was now bomb afraid of what happened on the Mike. Different question. Come back forth. Okay. So for you as a black woman. Do you corporate America I can't remember I am in healthcare is a Lotta women health care There is a lot of women in healthcare. I feel like that's. One of the areas where women seem to dominate more than men on a little bit. But then I retract that a little bit in stay. I see more men doctors than I do see women doctors. But that starting to change to I am starting to see more women go into. That field, but it seems like more women are you know you know front staff medical secretaries? CNA's RN's LPN's verses doctors but I do see more women as NP's May because that's the foundation of nursing like if you WanNa go further you go when you get your NPR your d. n. p. so it's it's starting to change. But yes, I would say they're definitely more women in healthcare or some struggles that you as a black woman, my experience just like going to work day to day. My current job it's it's different everything. They're very inclusive in. We just had a conference that we came off of on that was Thursday and Friday called solidarity which all included just the they ran their staff. When we were covid free, they send their staff up to a people of color. They've done them to wherever the conferences being held and it's like open discussion about everything and the president of where I work as a black woman whereas coming from where I was before that wasn't the case and the president. Was a white woman who sold our company to know who the I I dunno, and so now the president is a Asian man I believe. So I feel like. Black Women. My previous job we really couldn't. Be Ourselves fully, we walk around holding back just to get our jobs done and go home to wake up and do.
