A highlight from Consequences of McCarthys Deal with Democrats
"The real danger of Obamacare is not the cost. That's not going to be the issue. It's going to be the destruction of health care because bureaucrats will make the decisions that the doctors should be making with their patients. And what happened? The bureaucrats in Albany, Dr. Fauci in Washington, the bureaucrats in government made decisions that were completely wrong that the doctors, for fear of losing their licenses under threat of termination, were forced to follow. Welcome back. Mike Lomas, Comical Financial Guys, a place where money meets politics. We still talk radio even though it's a podcast, but thanks for tuning in. And this, by the way, brought to you by our home and auto division. Give us 14 minutes, let us shop over 25 companies to save you money. And it is Medicare season. I can tell you that the Buffalo office is ramping up crazy. So if you need help turning 65, 65 plus need help with your Medicare, make sure you call us. But we, you know, throughout the week we send each other a ton of stuff. Glenn, the violence, let's start with the violence because the crime in, in these left wing hubs is to me just getting out of control. You know, one of the things Mike asked me this morning on the morning Mike's was, you know, do you think the liberals will, will get this now? Because this week alone, there's been multiple left wing nut job. You know, folks that have been stabbed. This is the New York City fatal New York City stabbing of a social justice activist, right? So, you know, this, this nut job didn't know that this guy was left wing, right wing. He just stabbed them, right? The guy was mentally ill, just stabbed them. I think it was Philadelphia. Was he just a criminal? Well, right. Well, right. Well, I think to be a criminal, you got to be mentally ill, but yeah, there are some people that are like legitimately like they're on the streets. They should be in an institution, but they're mentally ill. There's other people that are just like, Hey, I'm from Venezuela. I'm from El Salvador. I'm just going to get, I'm just going to get your crap. Although I don't think this guy stole anything. Right. He just stabbed them. Like, so yeah, I don't know what he just did. Yeah. Yeah. But, but, um, so go, sorry, go. I didn't say it was, I was saying to, uh, Marcy this morning, I'm like, you know, the sad thing is we used to say, you know, I know a lot of Venezuelans, you know, dying down here in Florida is a lot of Venezuelans, a lot of Cubans, good people, right? Yeah. Here's the difference. The, the, the, the next generation though, but you see, like I saw a video, I can find the video. I think you saw the video, right? Um, guys, 17, 18 years old. He's like, I'm from, I'm from, you know, Venezuela. I'm going to New York city. He's got gang tattoos, tattoos all over his face. You saw that, right? So 17 years old, you have to remember this kid has never experienced the benefits of the positives when Venezuela was a free country. Like he doesn't, like you talked to a 45 year old or a 50 year old Venezuelan. They're like, Oh my God, we lost our country. They lost their country when they were 20 or 30. He's fighting to survive the whole time. Yeah. Yeah. He knows breaking into a zoo to try to get the, that's right. That's what he knows. Right. That's the life he knows. So now you're taking that kid. Now you're putting him in New York city. What life does he know? What, what marketable skills does he have outside of eating out of a dumpster? Well, let me be fair. When you're, when your entire face is a tattoo, you've got very few things that you can do. Very few, very few. I'm not saying there's not things that you can't do because I'm sure there's all kinds of labor, but you're, you're basically wiping yourself out from half the workforce at that point. So here's your choice as an 18 year old El Salvadorian or Venezuelan, right? You can work in a construction job, make good money, 80, 90, $100 ,000 a year, pay 20 ,000 or more of that to the federal government. So you end up with half by time you're done. Or you can get involved in one of these new, uh, uh, organized gangs that are popping up in these major cities where they're targeting luxury homes and breaking in. They're also targeting luxury yachts and they're stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars that they fence on the black market and you can make the same $100 ,000 except there's no taxes. There's no, there's no filing of anything and you're seeing these things. You're seeing these criminal gangs organized criminal crime syndicates that are actually now moved here and are setting up in major cities across the country. Yeah. They, they actually set up the online campaigns, right? So you can see it all, you know, they'll show you how it all plays out, right? They'll loot five stores. Uh, you were, you were saying something about the yachts and the big homes. Here's what's happening folks. This is what happens, right? Now, the other, the, it's funny, I sent you this morning, Starbucks closing seven downtown San Francisco stores. So we already know that Walmart's closing in, in all those places. Target's closing and all these places, the San, the, the, uh, the Starbucks are closing, so they have nothing left to rob. Now in some of these they've got it out, they've basically got it out. San Francisco, right? So where are you going to move? The Starbucks to where the money is. The Starbucks went from sensitivity training. Remember five years ago, they had a, they had a, they had a black guy loitering in the place, harassing customers that they called the police on. It ended up being a major, it was racism. They shut down all the stores across the country. Remember? And then they, then they opened up a policy of anybody can use their bathroom, even homeless people policy. Then they had to walk that back. And now they're all close. Now they're all close. Now they're just throwing them in the towel. His question this morning, Mike was, will they ever get it? And I said, Mike, I said, I know I've used this analogy a million times, but I think it's so, so very true. If you look at the school systems that they've run and they've gone from 80, 90, a hundred percent graduation rates to 90 to 80 to 70 to 60, you would think at some point along the way that they would have been smart enough to figure it out. Now they're at 40%. And, and literally a hamster could graduate, right? I mean, if the hamster shows up in the classroom, that's a 40%, you move on. Right. So to answer the question, I don't think they're going to figure this out. I think the only way it happens truly is you have a structured bankruptcy and the social programs go away and you're going to have massive, I mean, really, truly, you're going to have hubs that are, that are Iraqi, you know, war zones and yeah, I mean, it's going to get worse. By the way, those war zones are going to get worse and worse and worse. The drug will get worse. And, and the, and the communities outside of that, if you've got a structured bankruptcy and they're not paying for the social garbage anymore and the free welfare, they'll be able to have the good police officers. They'll be able to have the good walls, right? The property values will be expensive, but the Democrats want those same crime, places, you know, subsidize housing. They want them in your neighborhood. They want them in Lancaster. They want them in Alma. That's what they want. To that point this week, they, they are now issuing vouchers. So you can, and those vouchers by the way, are not meant to say you stay right where you are in this inner city. That's already a piece of shit. You take this voucher and you give it to the landlord out in the suburbs and we'll pay your rent. Right. And now it puts a landlord in a tough position. Okay. Well, I can get guaranteed rent with these vouchers. Right. What if you don't take it? What if you don't take it? You're going to get accused of discrimination. You're going to get, you're going to get investigated by our very fair and honest attorney general in New York state. Of course not. That's right. You think about this though, Mike. So in Minnesota, we had the council woman, remember that, that was, he advocated for no police. Remember? And then she was carjacked in her driveway and violently assaulted. And she's on camera after with, you know, bloody head going, I can't believe this happened to me. You advocated for no police. Right. They're the first ones, by the way, trying to get their phone for 911. That's right. First ones, New York City officers, New York City, left wing advocate, right? Activist, uh, stabbed to death, right? Activist, left wing act to no police, no bail, bail with doing all the things at the left. When I said left wing activists, these activists, let's talk about what they support. They support no bail because that's not fair. Right. They think that criminals are, are, are, you know, mistreated. So they want them back out in the streets. Right. They want less police because police are the problem. Right. I mean, you know, I don't, do they get it? No. And then just yesterday or two days ago, you had a Democrat, a politician, carjacked at gunpoint in DC. That's right. It's insanity. In DC. In DC. You cannot, you're not safe in DC. Right. Where the, where the white house is. The Capitol. Right. Right. The Capitol. It's a crap hole. You know why? Because it was run by people like Mariel Bowser for years. Right. It was run by corrupt left wing politicians. Right. And to ask if they're totally getting rid of cashless bail in states like this, they're doubling down. There's been no conversation about that. He's not talked about that. Kathy Hochul. I mean, honest to God, talk about a narcissistic moron. I mean, she's saying, get this kid rescued. Thank God. Thank God. Hats off to the, to the state troopers and the police to put this together a great job and returning this child. Kathy Hochul, all the press stuff she does. There's not one picture of the family. It's all about her. Everything. Prescott. I promised a family. I'd get them back. Really? How could you possibly do that? Which is totally untrue, but she made this whole episode. Instead of praising the police and the good job that she made this whole thing about her. How great she was. Unbelievable. She is truly stupid. I think the guy had a rap sheet too. I think he was the guy, by the way, the guy that got stabbed in New York city, I bet Mike, he's like a red stripe. I said, we're both down in Florida. You know, that way we both win. This guy, when they find this guy and they'll find him, he'll have a rap sheet as well. He will have been out on jail multiple times. He probably has already stabbed somebody. This is probably isn't his first stabbing. Why, by the way, why, by the way, we're not outraged and getting rid of knives is beyond me. You can't defend yourself. I don't know. Where did that stabbing happen? That was Philadelphia, I believe. Was that New York city? Oh, stabbing was in Brooklyn. That's right. Something else happened in New York city. Oh, a lady got hurt with, uh, uh, uh, you know, hoodlums on motorcycles. A woman with two children got her back window smashed. And when they jumped out of her car, got out to confront the guy, he pulls a gun. She doesn't stop, backs him down and protects her kids. The problem though is, if you are living in one of these left -wing cities, you have to get out. You have to get out. This guy, let's say if he wanted to defend himself for two nights ago and took out a gun. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe now, maybe not because he's been a left -wing Democrat and he's a registered Democrat. So I'm sure, I'm sure that would go a long way. Was he gay? Yeah. Was he trans with the, what card did he hold? I don't know. He's got to have something because I think that, I think the perpetrator was black. Was he not? It's not, yes. You're saying it's not just good enough to be a Democrat anymore. You got to take it one level higher. You gotta have something. You gotta be something else. You gotta be an acrobat, you know, lesbian, you know, underwater free diver. I don't know. It's just, it's just so this preposterous. It really, stuff that they come up with. Another three here in Western New York, and three Colombian nationals this week charged with burglizing Amherst residents. See, this is the problem though. You know, you have to question this morning with Mike Hayflick. Coming to the suburb, a suburb near you. It's coming to a suburb near you. You're going to watch very quickly these left -wing folks that have voted Democrat, although I'm not sure that a little brains are going to get it, but you're going to find very quickly how we're going to go from an all loving open -armed community to whoa, whoa. And even Kathy Hochul's like, don't come, don't come here. We're full. We're full. Open arms, a statue of Liberty, something along, welcome everybody, blah, blah, blah. As Joe would say, you know, which wasn't the truth, by the way, Ellis Island, you had to go through, you know, I've been reading up and really started learning about a lot of the history of our immigration policy. Agree to learn English, sponsored by family. You had to go through, you know, testing to make sure you weren't sick. If you were sick, if you came, if you got off the boat and you exhibited open sickness, you got back on the boat and you were shipped back or, or you were quarantined. Interestingly enough, throughout the turn of the century, we had very strict quotas of countries that we allowed people to come in from. We had countries that were literally blacklisted. We were not allowing certain countries like African countries to emigrate, immigrate, I should say United States progressives, by the way, liberal progressives at the turn of the 19th century were the ones that put those policies in place. So again, you know, it's amazing how, when you look at actual and understand actual history and you see how things really flipped, you know, it's really two things, by the way, that, that changed this in a big way, right? Number one was these feet. People did not come in here and get massive amounts of welfare, right? They went right to work. There was no welfare. They agreed to learn English. They agreed to acclimate into the school systems, right? Number one, number two, we actually had a criminal justice system back then that actually put criminals in jail, right? So if you came over here and you did something stupid, you were going to jail. You were not getting out on cashless bail. Welfare wasn't waiting for you on the other side, a very different system than where we are today. And it could have impacted your entire family. Your family had to vouch for you coming over. We had a family oriented immigration policy that really stressed. So if you had family over here already and you were, let's say in Italy or you were in France or whatever, and you wanted to immigrate to the United States, you had a much higher probability of being able to get to the United States and, and, and meet, you know, get underneath that quota. But from, from, from a, a good chunk from world war, you know, about turn of the century through the great depression, we had very little immigration in this country. And it's amazing. I look at like my grandparents that came from Italy. I'm surprised they were able to get in, but it came, you know, my grandparents and then they brought over a few more family members, but most of them were still in Italy. They, they stayed over there. So just interesting if you really understand the policy and you understand history, and I wish they would teach more of this on who was responsible for what. But yeah, while they're removing all that. Yeah. Speaking of karma though, we've mentioned karma earlier and we got to talk about Kevin McCarthy and Carmageddon. I mean, I hope that the Republicans take notice that this is what happens when you cut a deal with the Democrats. Cause that's what he did, right? He cut a deal with the Democrats. Some of them are not getting it still though. Newt Gingrich I saw last night. Newt, I love you man. But he's on Fox. So he goes, I think this is a bad idea. I'm like, this guy is exactly why people like you and I McCarthy never give a goddamn penny to the Republican. And that's exactly why we don't show up for the benefits anymore. We don't show up because it's, it's, it's total. We are $33 trillion in debt with a clock, by the way, that is literally smoking. It's going so fast. You can't even see the numbers flip anymore. It's just a blur. It's just a blur.
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.
Dr. Luft's Testimony Leaves House Oversight Committee in Disarray
"How do you see this then playing out? Do you think that Dr. Luft is going to be able to come and ever testify to the House Oversight Committee? I mean, is there going to be an extraordinary, unprecedented, maybe codel of House Republicans that travel internationally and take his testimony at an undisclosed location? I mean, how does this play out? I doubt very much whether that would happen. I mean, he is a fugitive. And is he hiding out. He's on the run. He thinks you can hear him say that in that 14 -minute video that we posted yesterday. You can hear him say that he's maybe on the run for the rest of his life. He says to me privately he's concerned for his own safety. And so James kind of still wants him to be a witness. That's what I do know. And so whether they do it via video link, in some way where Gal Luft isn't revealing to the authorities where he is, I just don't know. I don't know what even the criminality of that is. Yeah. And it's just hard to keep track of all these different elements. And

Jeff James: A Stronger Perimeter Can Save Lives
"Know we call them the ingress and egress They're not impenetrable But what we did in the secret services you're not setting up an impenetrable fortress I mean Jeff a lot of what you and I use that do incite advances was pipe and drape Literally a drape with no ballistic capabilities whatsoever So you might say well why use it People can shoot through it Well the answer is because if you're inside the pipe and drape I know you shouldn't be there I mean a lot of these things like hardening and entrance just with locks Well they can shoot through the glass Well they may But then they're going to have to shoot through the glass and announce themselves first I mean the point I think you're trying to make is I get these questions a lot from people understandably inexperienced in this space They're not being rude Well you put a wall there You can just get a ladder Yeah but then you got to walk down the street with a ladder which kind of looks strange So if you could expound on that a bit Yeah and the time it takes So we talked about they've been talking about the 14 minutes that took for the police to respond So that she set off an alarm yesterday when she started shooting that gave everybody in that building And when you watch the body cam video you hear the alarms going off Somebody pull an alarm everybody locked down and it prevented further bloodshed But she tripped her own wire by shooting through the door If it would have been a case where she just kind of opened the door and walked in and you had kids in the hall maybe go into the bathroom Imagine the carnage that that would have caused So yeah if you could find a way to cause somebody even 5 extra seconds to get inside your perimeter it's going to give you time to get kids to a safe space or if it's a workplace your employees to a safe space and it's going to save lives
What We Know About the Nashville School Shooting
"Let's talk about the shooting that happened in Nashville at the private school. Right now, according to the information that I have, I don't have any indication of the motive of this young person, according to reports, it was a female, looked like she was around school age. I think it just came out. My producer was telling me that she was a former student at the school, which it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that, given the fact that she went into the school through a side door, she automatically went to the second floor and began shooting. When I see something like that, what it tells me is that it's personal. It tells me that if somebody is familiar with the school, because if you're just going in to do a random shooting, you bust in the door and then you just shoot in the first people you see. In many cases, people like that are not effective. Thank God because they don't know the layout of the school. They don't know if they're going through the break or not. But somebody that's going to the school and pick the appropriate time that they know they're going to catch the people that they want to catch. It appears that it was about 6 adults shot and three adults shot and killed three children shot and killed. And the speed of response of the police officers were absolutely astonishing, I can't believe it from the time the call came out, which was around 12, I think it was like 1213 or something like that. And they were able to eliminate the threat at about 1227. It took them about 14 minutes to completely eliminate the threat and the active school shooting. Now, that's a good and a bad thing. It's a good thing because that was a tremendous response, not like you've Aldi where it took them an hour or so to get into the school and it was a lot it was a lot more of a complicated situation. Seeing officers be able to respond quickly and eliminate the thread on the second floor, was very impressive, given the fact they didn't know where to shoot it was. They ended up clearing the first floor of her some shots they went up to the second floor and eliminate eliminated the threat.

All right, thanks very much, Dan, the time 15 minutes before the top of the hour. Let's say good morning to Bloomberg economy editor to look a little bit more about this reversal on quarantine rules and what we can expect out of the Chinese economy. Jill, thanks very much for being with us. There's so many moving parts here We know that revenge spending is something that we've seen around the world. But Chinese consumers will have been pretty cautious here of late. And I guess one big question is, you know, will they will they be comfortable enough to get out there and spend and travel and all the other things that we might expect? Yes, well, I mean, first of all, imagine having this conversation just 6 weeks ago when we were still kind of in full force on COVID zero. Yes, now things are quite a bit different January 8th is the day when China is supposedly is dropping all or pretty much all of its restrictions on coming into the country the only thing that will be required is a 48 hour or a test COVID test 48 hours before you come into the country. Remember, though, with China's consumers, yes, I mean, obviously there's been this depression of spending lately, particularly because even though a lot of the COVID rules are gone, they still are not leaving because quite a lot of people are sick. I mean, we have no idea how many people are sick in China right now because there's been such a huge pullback on testing on reporting. But several models have put it in the millions, if not more, per day. So that continues to be an issue, and obviously as the swathe spreads that is going to be a continued concern. But also, remember that it's going to take some time for travel to ramp back up again. I mean, just look at what's happened in Hong Kong and the rest of the world. You can't just suddenly add flights and then fly in and out of China. So there's some pretty big considerations here before we see a total return to normal and travel. Jill, there's a sense of China's revisal on quarantine rules came too little too late, a lot to undo. I mean, what does it all mean for the economy? The projections for growth that China could perhaps lift the global economy can it do that still? Yeah, I mean, we will have to see. I think most economists right now are thinking that China's GDP at least is going to recover. I'm pretty significantly next year, a baseline forecast is hovering somewhere around 5% growth year on year with the lot of the problems or the slowdown concentrated in either the back half of the back quarter of this year. And then also the first quarter of next year, I think we're going to be muddling our way through Q one without really seeing that full recovery in part because we're still again going through this giant COVID wave, but then also because it's a traditionally slow period anyway, we've got the lunar new year holiday coming up massive amount of time where we're not really seeing a whole lot of output anyway, but we'll have to see, I think once we get closer into the second quarter and then ultimately the second half of the year is when we're going to see most of that recovery and how that has knock on effects for the rest of the world. So it's not only the lockdowns that we've experienced and people's fears of what would happen if you were able if you got the disease, but it's also the property crisis has been the strong regulatory overhang that has hit China. And I note that the PBOC has just released a survey that they did of some 20,000 households in 50 cities and fewer Chinese households are interested in buying homes as they don't see much improvement in their income and they are feeling quite bearish. What changes that? Yeah, I mean, that's also the big question headed into 2023. I think we saw it in economic work conference a couple of weeks ago with president Xi that the government at least understands that they need to potentially take more supportive action going into this year because you're not exactly just going to magically recover everybody savings that have been drained over the last three years or so. There was actually just an article out today from the economic daily that's a state affiliated newspaper in China saying that there's still room for a continued property adjustment going into 2023. So maybe they look at how they increase housing supply, how they fix up real estate development balance sheets. So there's there could potentially be more supportive policies that the government is going to have to put forward to really help drive demand. All right, Jill, thanks very much for being with us. It's a story that will roll out over the next many months, very interesting one. We will definitely have you back. Jill dice is Bloomberg economy editor. Right now, looking at markets, the index is holding on to its gains up 1.8% CSI

Texas DPS Director Steve McCraw Speaks out About Uvalde Shooting
"Steve McGraw is director of the Texas Department of Public Safety And he was at a hearing today a hearing that really mattered And here in part is what he had to say cut one go There's compelling evidence that the law enforcement response to the attack at rob elementary was an abject failure and antithetical to everything we've learned over the last two decades since the Columbine massacre Three minutes after the subject turned to the west building there was sufficient number of armed officers wearing body armor To isolate distract and neutralize the subject The only thing stopping the hallway of dedicated officers from any room one 11 and one 12 was Janssen commander Who decided to place the lives of officers before the lives of children The officers had weapons the children had none The officers had body armor the children had none Officers had training the subject had none One error 14 minutes and 8 seconds That's how long the children waited and the teachers waited in rooms one 11 to be rescued And while they waited the on seed commander waited for radio and rifles Then he waited for shields Then he waited for S.W.A.T. Lastly he waited for a key that was never needed The post column mine doctrine is clear and compelling an unambiguous stop the killing stop the dying You can't do the former unless you do You can't do the latter unless you do the former This is Disgusting
Did Rex Harrison Drive Carole Landis to Suicide?
"Know, there's a stat that I think somebody commits suicide every 14 minutes. So if you think about it, killing yourself is not really uncommon. But there are a lot of reasons people commit suicide, but you know what, for me, I talked about Anthony Bourdain on the Patreon show today. To me, it really boils down to one thing. And that's the hopelessness that things won't get better. Right? To me, that seems to be the main thing, the main root cause. And maybe that's why it seems very tragic when someone with so much to give and look forward to just ends their life. Like in Carolina's case, it's just very final. But, you know, that pain and heartache and laws can be very hard to bear, and it can make sad and desperate women or men do very sad and desperate things. So it's a sad story and I wanted to just to bring it up because not many people talk about it, but here's a woman who was born on New Year's Day and then dies on Independence Day at 29 years old, she packed a lot of life into those 29 years, spent the final night of that life with Rex Harrison, and the next day he's the one to discover her dead body on the bathroom floor. I just asshole waits hours before he calls the doctor, or the police, and when they arrive, he insists, no, no, no, we're just Friends. And there was also a theory that she left two suicide notes, one for her mother, and his second for Rex Harrison, and when he got that, he instructed his lawyers to destroy it and it never be seen again. And during a coroner's inquest, Rex Harrison denied knowing of any motive for her suicide and had no idea about the existence of a second suicide

Lakers' Drummond Shows Promise Against the Heat
"Andre Drummond, but we've only seen him up until tonight. We only see him for 14 minutes in purple and gold and he got hurt and against the Milwaukee now here he is back tonight twenty seven minutes. That's a lot of minutes 549 from the field 12 boards three assists two steals. No blocks three turnovers five thousand but fifteen points off of 6 from the Line run. Let's start with you. What good and bad. What did you like and dislike about what we saw out of Andre Drummond tonight? And and what do you think about him moving forward? Yeah, so I mean we we talked about it during the game. I texted you guys that basically if he can work on just catching the ball firmly the first time he touches it and not bottling it and get it get swiped around he's going to be incredible. He I mean look fifteen points and 12 rebounds two steals. He did have three turnovers, but I think two of them were in the office like two minutes of the game when again he was like bobbling the ball all places and couldn't get it a hold of it. He'd Butterfingers for the first like five minutes of the game, but once he settled down and just it's one of those things he just accepted the role that he's in he did not try to do too much. He didn't take any of those bad like dumb hook shots that he's known for he didn't try to do any of that stuff. He just played his game. He got rebounds wage jumped the ball and he had some pretty good passes to I mean I point Drummond is an interesting concept.

Sea Hunt - It's Still Alive - Cave Diving
"Off It's time for another installment of Sea Hunt. It's still alive. And today we're going back to season 2 episode 21 for cave diving cave diving Premier package on May 24th 1959 in this episode. Mike is working with a geologist George Brian who is searching for uranium in an underwater cave. George has been doing his diving with his wife Susie up until now but needs Mike helped to explore further and do more work. They're diving off the boat Olympia with its Captain pops. Mike and George hop in and swim down with her watertight geiger counter. Mike has a doubles and George's in a single tank as they approached the cave. They put the ear pieces from the geiger counter into their ear and they take out the probe Mike's off the Geiger counters chattering like magpies. All of a sudden things start to shake Mike is spinning around. George is at the cave entrance. It's an underwater landslide. When all the turbulence is over, there's a huge Rock blocking the entrance to the cave and George is trapped inside under a pile of rocks. Mike shines his light and injured signals back. Mike can't budget Iraq. So he heads back to the surface. He says he has less than an hour before Susie becomes a widow. Mike tells pops. He needs the ship-to-shore radio to call the pier and they need to bring out some big hooks to pull away the Rocks. He's talking really fast. George only has 46 minutes left now. He tells Pops that it's real bad. Now they're desperately scanning the surface for the help from the pier the boat rounds the point and gets there within 14 minutes Susie is on board in her scuba gear bag ready to help George is down to thirty minutes Suzy insists on helping Mike despite his objections. Now Mike and Susie make it to the caves entrance and struggle to get the anchors attached to the large Rock. Finally. They get them in place and Mike's ends up a flare for the boat to pull the rock the boat strains when suddenly the anchors Breakaway failure Susie is desperate trying to get into the cave. Mike is trying to calm her down and he said she has to be rough with her in the commotion Susie's air hose gets fouled and they have to Buddy breathe to the surface. Susie climbs on board the hooks won't work. She's crying pops is trying to comfort her. What will Mike do now? Here's where things really get interesting. Well, Mike just happens to have some Dynamite on board just in case you know, pop says that's kind of risky. Mike says there's no other option but like pops was in the Seabees in World War Two and says they use Gophers to carry a line through a pipe. So they concoct a plan to use a fish to thread the line off The Rock. Well, it just so happens. There's a barrel on Deck with a live fish might takes out the fish and ties a line around its tail and heads back down to the cave with the fish house and a speargun. He checks to see if George is still alive looks at his watch time is running out. He lets the fish go into the cave ties the fishing line to the heavier line and tries to log the fish back with his light like tries to grab the fish. It's too fast time for the speargun. He's got one shot takes dead aim, and our hero fish is a goner my calls in the fish pulls the line through and now has the heaving line around the rock ties the bowl and shoot a flare to the surface and Lifeboat cranks up its engine. Finally The Rock is pulled from the entrance my crushes in freeze George and brings him to the surface. Mike yells out. I got him and pop lets out a big Yahoo back on the boat. George and Susie are reunited. Mike is lounging now. They say George's leg will be okay. They're talking about the fish that saved George Susie says that were fish was Mike Nelson. As the episodes ends, they're talking about pops idea from when he was in the Navy and Pop's final line is I wasn't in the Navy. I was just the Seabees. Hm wonder what my CB friends would think of that now you might recognize George if you're of a certain age, that would be Herbert Anderson better identified with Dennis the Menace his father Henry Mitchell. Well, that was certainly not what we think of when we think about cave diving using a fresh to thread a line around Iraq is a little out there but if anyone can do it, it would be Mike Nelson on Sea Hunt. off
